Fabletics’ Love of Sharing-Members

For the past four years, Fabletics has become the most popular activewear brand. Despite launching into a market already dominated by brands like Under Armour and Lululemon, Fabletics brought something different. Those brands, while famous, are expensive; Fabletics is affordable. That sets it apart from all others.

The activewear movement is nothing new, but it’s only recently become worldwide. Millennials love activewear more than any other fashion category. Fabletics has two things that all millennials are drawn to: activewear and celebrity fame. Co-founded by Kate Hudson, Fabletics is succeeding thanks to the love of young people and its 1.2 million monthly members.

On top of that, Kate Hudson isn’t just there to be pretty and famous. She’s a powerhouse of a leader and controls Fabletics with her grace. She’s actually involved with the daily operation of her company. She works with every department and keeps things up to her high standards.

She’s also the gentle soul that members feel from the brand. Fabletics isn’t just selling fitness wear to people who are already in good shape. It’s also about inspiring women to get out and embrace an active, healthy lifestyle. Recently, Fabletics launched its first plus-size lines, allowing all women to get inspired.

Before Fabletics included plus-size women, there wasn’t any affordable plus-size activewear. Kate, herself, only found one pair of yoga pants and it cost $250. Fabletics creates lines in sizes from XXS to 3X. It takes longer to make all women equal, but it’s worth it in the end.

That’s the kind of detail to attention that members love; that and the discount prices for on-trend fashion. Seriously, Fabletics has one of the largest selections of styles in the industry. It actually surprises a lot of their members to see just how many different looks Fabletics has.

There’s a lot of mention of Fabletics online. A lot of people like to point out the negative comments, but Fabletics’ members know the truth. Fabletics has a very positive online reputation according to reviewers. One of the reasons Fabletics is so beloved online is because they use a review-centric marketing strategy.

A lot of people use online reviews to determine final purchases. Companies that don’t embrace online reviewing don’t last long. People trust online reviews more than traditional advertising and marketing. In a way, crowdsourcing is a blessing to companies and customers.

The Trabuco Becomes The Siege Weapon Of Choice Across Much Of The World

In popular culture, the Trabuco has become associated solely with Europe in the Middle Ages but for many scholars and researchers, this well-known siege weapon has a much longer, important history to be explored. Initially designed in China, the Trabuco has developed into one of the world’s best-known weapons because of the iconic long arm which springs forward to propel rocks, stones, and large boulders across hundreds of yards into the defenses of an enemy. The design of the Trabuco may have evolved in Europe but its history is firmly rooted in China and the Middle East in ancient times.

According to pt.wiktionary.org the design of the first Trabuco is thought to have been developed in ancient China in 400 BC with hundreds of people employed to power the first versions of the weapon; this first design is thought to have been unreliable as the strength and level of tiredness of the humans forced to provide propulsion varied during a battle. As the centuries passed, Middle Eastern traders began to open up routes into China which would bring them into contact with a wide range of areas of Chinese culture including the weapons created by this innovative culture According to zomato.com.

Records show the first use of the Trabuco in European warfare dates back to around 600 AD but the use of the weapon did not become widespread until the Crusades began in the 11th–century. Siege warfare would become the norm across much of Europe and South America where the influence of European colonists towards the end of the Middle Ages which extended the military use of the weapon for many years after it was seen as outdated in European circles; the last known use of the Trabuco in a warfare situation was in 1521 when the capital of the Aztecs in South America was the subject of a siege. The weapon has come in for something of a revival as a leisure and educational tool displaying the science of physics.

https://www.researchgate.net/publication/279989379_Insulin_Resistance_as_Common_Molecular_Denominator_Linking_Obesity_to_Alzheimer’s_Disease

I thought this was a fantastic article describing the relationship between obesity and Alzheimer’s Disease. AD was once thought to be a “progressive neurodegenerative disease,” meaning that it was essentially a slow breakdown of the structures and neurons within the brain. With new information regarding potential risk factors, modifiable risk factors at that, we can now work to prevent this disease from occurring as frequently. Follow Oncotarget on Twitter.

This article specifically looked at body weight, blood glucose, and insulin levels prior to “sacrifice.” The test rats were given a high-fat diet, which triggered oxidative stress and mitochondrial dysfunction. This led to them being found with a higher body weight and a decreased cerebral weight, signaling the loss of brain volume. The article conclusion essentially states that targeting individuals who are considered obese and working with them to reduce their body weight may also help prevent issues in the brain later in life.

Oncotarget has also been researching new ways to treat thyroid cancer. One of the most promising is the use of a combination of traditional cancer drugs. The drugs are palbociclib and vemurafenib, and their combined effect is enough to produce desired effects in the patient. Instead of the patient building up resistance to the drugs individually, they are able to take smaller and more synergistic doses.

Lastly, the Oncotarget podcast is available to listen to from Stitcher, Player.FM and iTunes. The health issues already mentioned, plus several more will be discussed, along with testimonials, publication ethics, and publication malpractice.
