Exposure to community violence, either as victims or witnesses, is a widespread and persistent problem in many of America’s urban cities. In the U.S., the number of adolescents murdered each year can fill a high school of almost 6,000 students. As alarming as these figures are, the frequency of non-fatal adolescent injuries is at least 120 times that of youth murders, and it is estimated that more than 1.2 million crimes against adolescents go unreported yearly. Exposure to community violence has been linked to mental health problems, poor academic performance, involvement with risky peer networks, and more recently, as Professor Voisin’s work has documented, engaging in unsafe sex which increases the chances of contracting HIV. Collectively, these are problems which disproportionately affect African American and Latino youths. According to research by Voisin, studies on the impact of community violence have been generally artificially compartmentalized to examine discipline-specific outcomes (e.g., mental health, education performance, delinquency, and more recently risky sex) and have not adequately considered the interrelationships among these various domains which represent a major focus of Voisin’s scholarship. Through engaged research, teaching, service, and training, Voisin is committed to illuminating the broad impact of community violence on the developmental trajectories of young persons.

For over21 years, Professor Voisin has been conducting numerous studies which seek to better understand the various ways in which community violence exposure impacts the mental health, educational, and sexual trajectories of urban youth, with a major focus towards HIV prevention and intervention. His research has been funded by competitive awards from the National Institute of Mental Health, the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, and the W.T. Grant Foundation, among others. His prior research has informed public policy and provided support for the passage of the Soto, Delgado Bill approved by Illinois Governor Pat Quinn . This bill will provide a state advisory council which will make recommendations to the Illinois Department of Public Health on effective prevention messages to deter youths from engaging in risky behaviors that lead to HIV/AIDS infections. Voisin’s research has been cited by the Anne E. Casey Foundation, the Centers for Disease Control, the Maternal and Child Health Bureau, the California Department of Education, the Nebraska Department of Education, and the National Institutes of Health, among many others.

quality of life

When we are conscious of our attitudes towards the self, we can make an effort to eliminate negative thoughts. When we become more aware of ourselves, we are able to be mindful of surrounding ourselves with positive things.

The more you practice the more you notice what aspects of your life are most important to you as well as things that may be impeding on your happiness .


Additionally, daily affirmations help keep you in consistently positive mood. Optimistic people tend to be healthier, more productive, and generally happier than those who view themselves less positively. One study shows that after 4-weeks of repeated self-affirmation activity, participants experienced an increase in their mental well-being (Nelson, Fuller, Choi, Lyubomirsky, 2014).

Optimistic well-being

Daily affirmations allow us to have a clearer perspective on the obstacles in our life. In other words, people who practice daily affirmations don’t sweat the small stuff because they have a better grasp on what is important in their life. They are able to think about the big picture and not get overwhelmed with minor nuisances.

Positivity is contagious. By practicing positive affirmations, you are indirectly benefiting others as well. Your positive attitude will carry on to other people and in turn make them feel better.

Daily affirmations can be a difficult thing to do. Especially if you are someone who has struggled with self-compassion before, saying something nice about yourself is not always the easiest. To begin, we need to identify some of the properties of good affirmations.


Most importantly, an affirmation needs to be stated in the present and be positive. For example, “I expect to be successful”, would be one such affirmation. Notice that is written in the present; it does not say “I will be successful.”

An affirmation should be immediately gratifying for it to be effective. Also, it needs to be positive as well as unconditional. Saying something like “I will be successful after I get promoted” implies that a condition must be met in order for you to benefit. These kinds of affirmations can be more problematic than they are helpful.

Calorie-consciousness has lately been on the upswing, as people turn away from disappointing low-fat or low-carb diets, and as more and more restaurants post calorie counts, often in response to new local laws. But many people have no idea what calories are and how they work. Here are the important (and sometimes surprising) answers to seven key questions about calories.

It’s a unit of measure for the energy in food. First defined in France in the early 1800s, a food calorie (kilocalorie) is the amount of heat (energy) needed to raise the temperature of 1,000 grams (a liter) of water 1° Celsius. Researchers measure calories by using a “bomb calorimeter,” a small chamber in which a food is burned to heat water; the hotter the water, the higher the calorie count. Food companies today don’t need to burn their products to figure out the calories in them—they simply add up the calories of the ingredients, based on standard databases.

The components of food that provide calories include carbohydrates (4 calories per gram), nike preschool air max goadome boots
(4 calories), fat (9 calories) and alcohol (7 calories). Fat provides the most calories, which is a good thing when food is scarce, but not so good for people trying to lose weight, or at least not gain it. Vitamins, minerals and indigestible fiber have no calories.

Obviously, calories themselves are not bad, since you need them to live—the problem is their overconsumption. A calorie is a calorie, whether it comes from fat, carbs or protein. But the source of calories does matter for health. For instance, while the 100 calories in a big bowl of broccoli come with lots of nutrients and a satisfying bulk that will help fill you up, the 100 calories in one-third of a doughnut have neither advantage. Calories accompanied by few nutrients are often called “empty” calories.

Calories themselves weigh nothing, but excess calories are stored as potential energy, mostly in the form of body fat. Smaller amounts are also stored in the liver and muscles as glycogen, a storage form of glucose used for short-term energy.

A 190-pound person can consume far more calories than a 120-pound person without gaining weight. A larger body simply needs more energy (calories) for basic functions and to move about. Thus, if those two people are moderately active, the heavier one may burn 3,000 calories or more a day, while the lighter one probably burns less than 2,000, depending on their age, sex, fitness level, how much muscle and fat they have and genetic factors.
