“Bravo! I totally loved the VBAC Facts Class– I learned SO much! Jen does an astonishing job of summarizing the latest evidence on VBACs and repeat Cesareans in a way that is simple to understand. I also loved when she speaks about informed consent versus scare tactics, how to find a supportive care provider, and how to prepare for a hospital VBAC. I strongly suggest this class to anyone who is interested in learning about VBAC!” Rebecca Dekker, PhD, RN, APRN of www.evidencebasedbirth.com. Read Rebecca’s entire review.

“Thanks so much for an awesome class! I want to tell mamas… please don’t be afraid to look at the stats. They do support what we intuitively know. Our bodies are prefabricated to give birth. Even in a climate that is unfavorable the majority of women who attempt VBAC are successful. Envision what we can do as we spread the information, change this climate, and become empowered birth consumers. The conditions will become more favorable and that can only produce positive results for us. Share stats. Take classes like this and share them with other women. Go into a VBAC in full knowing, if you select to VBAC after seeing accurate info. That is empowerment. These stats establish to me that I can trust my body. We are all at different places when it comes to accepting and evaluating risks. What might seem risky to one mama, might not to me or you. That is why this info is a must. Full knowledge can promote emotional healing and empowerment among birthing women. We can demand evidence based care. We can be familiar with the stats. We can go into our VBAC intuitively and trusting. This is not an one way or the highway game. This is a you know what is ideal for you scenario. As someone who works with emotional, mental, spiritual preparation for VBAC and birth quite often, I love the marriage to the intellectual preparation. They are great team members. Ok… probably don’t make a lick of sense, but I’m pumped. Thanks!” – Kelli B. Haywood, Educator and Birth Doula at Birth True Childbirth Education

"Thank you Thank You THANK YOU! Jen, I just LOVED The Truth About VBAC Webinar we completed up today. I am definitely an suggest of following your intuition and trusting innate maternal wisdom, but knowing this information will help cast away those doubts about what moms' bodies are capable of. A cesarean is not the 'birth handicap' we are led to believe it is by the mainstream. I encourage all doulas and childbirth educators and VBAC seeking moms and partners to take this class, capture this information and use it to win support from your birth team. You can VBAC with confidence having the data to reference, and Jen did an astonishing job putting it all together in a clear manner, looking at the issue from myriad perspectives. Bravo Jen . . . well done!" – Jenn D'Jammos, CCCE, Earth Mama Birth – Review of the November 2012 webinar

"Jen's VBAC Facts webinar is interesting, organized, and most importantly, evidence-based!  Some of my favorite parts included the many charts Jen created, which illustrate statistics regarding Cesarean section and VBAC in the U.S.  I'm a visual learner, and putting those numbers in appearance really prefabricated it click for me.  This class would be a great fit for parents, educators, doulas, and any health professional working with moms and babies.  A mythologic educational opportunity!" – Lindsey Rupp, CD(DONA), CLS, PCD(DONA), Blissful Transition Doula Services

“This class is all about the facts. It is low pressure. It gives you information from scientific journals that will help you make the ideal decision for you and your baby. At the end, you get to decide which set of risks you are willing to accept. It opened my husband’s eyes. Even though I’ve been telling him, he needed to hear the research and the numbers. Thank you!!!” — Mother seeking VBA2C

“Thanks for an outstanding class! It was very nice meeting you. Your hard work and dedicated research is incredibly impressive. Knowledge is Power, wish it would rub off on the whole OB community. I think the trend to eventually turn that direction for women’s choice of birth options will happen as more people place that kind of pressure on the issue. Bravo to you!” — Labor & Delivery Registered Nurse seeking VBA1C

“My husband and I certainly felt even more confident after the class. I would definitely suggest it to anyone considering a VBAC.” — A mother planning VBA1C

“Jen Kamel blew me away with the personable nature in which she delivered stats and figures. She clearly explained how women can use them to comprehend their options. I wish each mortal out there who feels strange when dealing with the numbers vs intuition question would take this class and get a good look at what the integration of the two looks like.” — Shannon Mitchell, Doula & Birth Advocate

Okay, I’ve just discovered the keyword stats function and how you can see how people find your pictures.

Basically, everyone who finds my photos through searching uses one of these terms. My most favourite photos are still of the Philip Johnson Glass House, because it wasn’t open when I took the pictures, and they rose to the top of google and yahoo search engines.

But I’m still not sure why 8 or 9 people stumble in looking for "men giving birth" each day. 😛

Quoting Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum | Vought F4U-1D Corsair :

By V-J Day, September 2, 1945, Corsair pilots had amassed an 11:1 kill ratio against enemy aircraft. The aircraft’s distinctive inverted gull-wing design granted ground clearance for the huge, three-bladed Hamilton Standard Hydromatic propeller, which spanned more than 4 meters (13 feet). The Pratt and Whitney R-2800 symmetric engine and Hydromatic propeller was the largest and one of the most powerful engine-propeller combinations ever flown on a fighter aircraft.

Charles Lindbergh flew bombing missions in a Corsair with Marine Air Group 31 against Asian strongholds in the Pacific in 1944. This airplane is painted in the colors and markings of the Corsair Sun Setter, a Marine close-support fighter assigned to the USS Essex in July 1944.

Details, quoting from Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum | Space Shuttle Enterprise:

Manufacturer:
Rockwell International Corporation

Country of Origin:
United Says of America

Dimensions:
Overall: 57 ft. tall x 122 ft. long x 78 ft. wing span, 150,000 lb.
(1737.36 x 3718.57 x 2377.44cm, 68039.6kg)

Materials:
Aluminum airframe and body with some fiberglass features; payload bay doors are graphite epoxy composite; thermal tiles are simulated (polyurethane foam) except for test samples of actual tiles and thermal blankets.

The first Space Shuttle orbiter, "Enterprise," is a full-scale test car used for flights in the region and tests on the ground; it is not equipped for spaceflight. Even though the airframe and flight control elements are like those of the Shuttles flown in space, this car has no propulsion system and only simulated thermal tiles because these features were not needed for atmospheric and ground tests. "Enterprise" was rolled out at Rockwell International’s assembly artefact in Palmdale, California, in 1976. In 1977, it entered service for a nine-month-long approach-and-landing test flight program. Thereafter it was used for vibration tests and fit checks at NASA centers, and it also appeared in the 1983 Paris Air Show and the 1984 World’s Fair in New Orleans. In 1985, NASA transferred "Enterprise" to the Smithsonian Institution’s National Air and Space Museum.

Penguins In Their Pool

As a short break for Easter, Mrs H and I went over to Bourton-on-the-Water in the Cotswolds. With it being a typical British bank holiday (wet, windy, and generally horrible weather), we selected to go into Birdland to watch the penguins being fed at 2:30pm.

With the feeding over, we wandered off to look at some of the many different species of birds in Birdland. Unfortunately my knee started to give out pretty quickly, so I headed back past the penguin pen on the way to the Penguin Cafe.

With no fish to chase, the penguins were wandering around and playing in their pen, making for some great pic opportunities like this shot of this humbold penguin standing beside the pool.

Cool Using Site Stats images

Check out these using site stats images:

Once upon a time…
using site stats
Image by docpop
There was a time when a link on BoingBoing could send 4-5 thousand one-of-a-kind page views in a single day. My mystery heirloom post received 30,000 one-of-a-kind visitors in a single week and several other BB links are still sending traffic my way years later.
But throughout the years, I’ve noticed a steady decline on click throughs coming from BoingBoing (and other major sites). Yesterday’s link hasn’t even broken 100 visitors yet.
I know context is often important, a less interesting post might drive less traffic, but the PEZ story certainly seems to be getting around. I’m not criticizing or complaining about getting linked mind you, I ALWAYS love it when any site finds something interesting enough to link to or repost. I’m just puzzled by the decline. It used to be that getting "Boinged" was likely to crash a server, but why has this changed?

1. Perhaps everyone of BB’s readers know who Physician Popular is and don’t need to click through anymore. "Oh, it’s a link to that guy again. Whatever"

2. Maybe it’s the formatting? For instance a hyper link to "Doctor Popular" might not interest anyone, however a vague link at the bottom of the article that simply says "link" might tease the reader into believing their might be more to the story.

3. It’s doable the articles state everything the reader needs to know. It is the story that people care about, not who wrote about it on another blog.

4. The way we use the world wide web has changed. I know that with the popularity of RSS feeds on the rise, visits to my site are way down. I believe people are still reading my posts, but they appear to be doing it from their RSS aggregators which don’t show up on my site stats.

5. My statcounter is wrong. I do need to switch over to googlestats (which is nowhere near as nice to look at) but even if the statcounter is wrong, it wouldn’t be that far off.

6. ? I’m sure there’s more. List ’em below. Maybe we can get to the bottom of this together.

I haven’t figured out how I can add a stats tool to a website which I’ve prefabricated with Google Page Creator.

Can somebody help please?
Thanks a lot in advance!

Answer by Justin L
Quoted from the discussion group post linked to below:
“You can use GA (Google Analytics) with GPC. I do.

The only editable parts of a GPC page are in the body section so you
can insert the GA code in any of the sections. I advocate in the
bottom section.

You have found one of the GPC bugs, it will not save HTML if there was
not something already in that section. It is simple to overcome.

1. Type anything in to the empty section you want to add the HTML to,
I use ‘x’.

2. Save the page.

3. The ‘edit html’ the section you place the ‘x’.

4. Delete the ‘x’ & paste the GA code in.

5. Save.

And this time GPC will save it. “
