This entry was posted in News on by .

heroin is an illegal, highly addictive drug and acting more quickly than opiates. Heroin is processed from morphine, a naturally occurring substance extracted from the sheath of the seed of certain varieties of poppy plants.

the heroin is usually sold as a white or brown powder or as the sticky black substance known on the streets as ‘black tar heroin’. Street most of the heroin is cut with other drugs or substances such as sugar, starch, milk powder etc. In general, in the best of Malta or as is heroin know ‘smack’ is sold in packets made of paper, not more than one toe nail in size, Lm10 each. Heroin does not know the real strength of the drug and thus is always at risk of overdose or death. Other problems with heroin use is the transmission of HIV and other diseases that occur when sharing needles

how heroin is used?

the heroin usually injected, sniffed or smoked. Heroin addict can typically inject up to four times a day. Intravenous injections provide more intensity, more quick euphoric start, (7 to 8 seconds) while the intramuscular injection heroin that is sniffed provides a home relatively slow the euphoria (5 to 8 minutes) or smoked does not produce a fever and generally feel their effects peak within 10 to 15 minutes

(Adapted from the National Institute of Drug Abuse)

according to the NIDA researchers three forms of heroin administration are addictive. In the short term the immediate effects of heroin use are that the fever, depressed respiration, clouded mental functioning, nausea and vomiting and pain suppression. (Parker, 2002a:15) After the injection or inhalation, heroin crosses the barrier and is converted to morphine in the brain. It is when the abusers report quickly. “Having the best orgasm you’ve ever had. “Multiply by 1 thousand and you’re still far away”. This quote taken from the book and film ‘Trainspotting’ by Irvine Welsh better describes the ecstasy heroin addicts-induced feel. Heroin is particularly addictive as it enters the brain so quickly. ‘ The fever then is accompanied by a warm flushing of the skin, dry mouth and a heaviness in the limbs that can be accompanied by nausea, vomiting and severe itching. ‘ (Parker, 2002b:15) the long term effects are addiction, infectious diseases for example, HIV and hepatitis B and C, collapsed veins, bacterial infections, abscesses, infection of the lining of the heart and valves, arthritis and other rheumatologic problems. (Parker, 2002 c: 16)

addiction is more harmful effects long-term of heroin. Addiction is chronic, relapse of the disease, characterized by the pursuit of compulsive of drugs and the consumption and neuro chemical and molecular changes in the brain. As consumers of other drugs, heroin users gradually spend more time and energy obtaining and using the drug. Primary purpose of the abusers of heroin in life becomes search and use of the drug.

‘ garbage is not like alcohol or marijuana, a major means to enjoy the life. Trash is not a setback. It is a way of life.’ (Burroughs, 1953a)

physical dependence develops with doses higher drug. Withdrawal symptoms occur if use is reduced or stopped abruptly. Symptoms of withdrawal include restlessness, pain in muscles and bones, insomnia, diarrhea, vomiting, cold flashes (the term cold Turkey comes) and leg movements. Physical dependence and the appearance of withdrawal symptoms once thought that the key characteristics of heroin addiction. But cravings and relapse may occur weeks and months after that withdrawal symptoms are gone. This may be because the patient with pain looking for help and not the fever by the addict.

use Socio-psychological explanation.

there is a characteristic style of personality that can be called ‘addictive personality’. However, there are common traits of personality, symptoms and factors psychodynamic occurring in clusters of addicted persons. Many psychologists have devised theories to try to explain addiction.

function of Stanton et to the. results (1982) on the symptom in the families of addicts to drugs (heroin):

1. The euphoria of the regressive heroine, characterized by infantile fusion with the mother, allows the addict a symbolic reunification with the mother and the family of the children. Blunting of the drug effects allow the addict feel distant from overwhelming fears of incorporation while maintaining an illusory intimacy. This is true of other depressant drugs.

2. heroin causes a feeling of power and omnipotence that can unleash attacks to members of the family, especially parents. This ira allows the addict feel temporarily autonomous and free from family ties. Addicts elected life is also a challenging ‘quantum leap’ of the family.

3. regressive heroin, sexually equal high and the resulting “Rip and run” style of life, they prevent the man addicted to the development of intimate and lasting relationships particularly with women. In the latter stages of the addiction, drug use eliminated sex drive.

4. as result of the first three factors as underlying narcissistic personality, addicts are only pseudo family of procreation.” (Kaufman, 1994a:10)

dairy and Frosch (1973) found a difference between heroin and consumers of amphetamines which had abused both drugs and underwent a preference for one of the two. For those whose choice of drug was heroin, they suffer from depression and despair and relief from the anxiety by the withdrawal of others and repression of conflict through over and over again by the drug. In a later work, dairy and Frosch (1980) emphasized the need of the heroin to revive sporadic rabies opioid. Khantazian (1979) noted specific silencing and stabilize the effects of narcotics in rage and aggression. In a study of 200 heroin addicts, also found deficiencies in the development which led to outbursts of anger, poor impulse control, and dysphoria. Heroin then moderated the threat violent feelings that represent to themselves and others. In opiates, they experienced a sense of total physical relief, describing how soft and quiet. (Kaufman, 1994b:26)

heroin users usually belong to a subculture. Strong heroin users and controlled heroin users are bound together in small isolated groups who develop idiosyncratic rituals, rigid and social sanctions. These groups are always very fragile and focused on the drug. Ritual and compulsive users controlled users usually are the same. In both groups, people fight over who gets first, belts are used as links and so on. Ritual of the addict is an expression of the melancholy identification and bold outlaw stance is attractive for them.

the media, movies, music and stars has in recent decades put focus on heroin use and somehow added to his glamour. In the mid-90s a waif looking, emaciated, drug addicted look was popular in the fashion world. Pale skin, dark circles under the eyes and protruding bones were seen in models Runaways showing the appearance of ‘heroin chic’. Calvin Klein ads appears these looks in 1997. Fashion designers, model Kate Moss and movies like ‘Trainspotting’ and ‘Pulp Fiction’ were blamed by exalting the elegant appearance of heroin and lifestyle. Elegant fashion heroine always much controversy. In 1997 Bill Clinton felt he had to express its opinion on this. President Clinton lamented the fashion photography ‘heroin chic’, for sending a message using the drug once feared ‘glamorous’ or ‘sexy’. Clinton talking about policy drug United States took note of the recent admission by editors of journals that look ‘lost addict’ in some fashion designs had glorifies the use of heroin. He went on to say that the glorification of heroin was not creative and destructive. It was not art. Clinton went on to say that, although it has decreased the consumption of cocaine, heroin use had risen and said that you part of the reason the images that are finding their way to the young. David Sorrenti, a fashion photographer, who uses these images, died 20 years of a heroin overdose when Clinton made these statements to the press.

long before this incident of 1997, heroin has been the protagonist of letters, books, and deaths. The first book written in heroin was by Thomas De Quincy – confessions of a dining room of opium in the 18TH century. The Beat, mostly from William Burroughs generation, wrote important books on the subject. The most famous is ‘Junky’, which is autobiographical. Over the years, we have witnessed many fatal overdose in the entertainment industry, both in the world of cinema as River Phoenix, a young actor promising and numerous other deaths in music bands.

If you look at thes lyrics by Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground in the song with the self-explanatory title, “Heroin”, tells us that as many authors that write about the heroin, is the Center and the life of the addict.; ‘it is my wife and my life’, ‘because when the heroin flow, really I don’t already’ the soothing and relieving the pain produced by heroin users is clear in these letters, by the way affects the brain and the blood and the immense effect on thoughts of the person and the sense of being. Many later artists of Woodstock have written songs about heroin. Some songs about heroin: Neil Young: the needle and the damage done, the rolling stones: dead flowers, Red Hot Chilli Peppers: under the bridge, Velvet Underground: heroin, Guns N’ Roses: Mr Brownstone, of the: there goes, Dandy Warhols: not if you were the last junkie in the world, Wolfsheim: heroine, Velvet Underground: waiting for the man, the Ramones: Chinese Rock, Lou Reed : Perfect day, Pink Floyd: comfortably numb, U2: heroin and The Stranglers: golden brown:

“Brown texture Golden as the Sun
provides me WITH my mind works throughout the night

without having to fight
never a frown with golden”

legal aspect and punishment

the Dangerous Drugs Ordinance controls possession and trading of narcotics, including equipment or materials used for the production of drugs. Part II of the Act prohibits the import and export of opium. Covers crimes of manufacturing, selling or trafficking in or use. The law specifies to also treat as a crop. Traffic penalties are severe, especially if it occurs 100 metres of a school, youth centre if supplied to a pregnant woman, minor of age or a person in rehabilitation. 101 dangerous drugs Ordinance (chapter)

punishment is established in said Ordinance. The Court of the judiciary is competent to try all offences against the Ordinance. The Attorney General has the right to appeal to the Court of Criminal Appeal from any decision handed down by the Court of magistrates in connection with criminal proceedings arising from the provisions of this Ordinance. The Criminal Court hands of twelve months to ten years Lm10000 fined for possession.

In both cases, inmates are eligible for these services in the last two years of his sentence

the treatment no specific treatment is valid for all drug addicts. It is important that the treatment is suitable for particular problems and State of mind of each individual. The treatment must meet the needs of the individual. To be effective you have to address consumption of the addict, which may be related to medical, social or professional problems.

(adapted from the NIDA on treatment for drug abuse entitled ‘ principles of drug addiction treatment: a research-based guide)

counselling (individual or group) and other behavioral therapies are critical components of effective treatment for addiction. In therapy, patients issues of motivation, build skills to resist drug use, drugs with drugs not constructive and rewarding activities activities to replace and improve the problem solving skills.

drugs are also an important part of treatment for many patients, especially when combined with counseling and other behavioral therapies. Methadone and levo-Alpha-acetylmethdaol (LAAM) are very effective in helping people addicted to heroin to stabilize their lives and reduce the consumption of illicit drugs. (Parker, 2002d:168) In Malta, the majority of customers abuse of heroin is seen in the detoxification Center, while 29% in community services and 20% in rehabilitation programs. (National-Malta report drug situation 2004)

medical detoxification is only the first stage of addiction treatment and by itself does little to change long-term drug use. There are many types of treatments available. There are treatments free of drug patients, long-term residential treatment to medical detoxification and short-term residential treatment. There are two effective ways, prison-based treatment and treatment in the treatment of criminal drug abusers and addicts based on the community. Research shows that combines the sanctions of criminal justice, drug treatment may be effective to reduce the consumption of drugs and related offences.

in Caritas Malta and Sedqa are almost identical services to heroin addicts. There is also joy Oasi which offers residential rehabilitation services. Caritas and Sedqa both outreach and rehabilitation programs. They also offer information for parents and children and counseling for the whole family.


Photography Specialties

This entry was posted in News on by .

there are very few Americans who believe photography is everything to almost take photos; However, there are so many specialties that one can enter if going to the school of photography. First, there are many schools for those who want to focus on only one type of photography. For example, a photographer can specialize in taking pictures to senior. Below you will find a brief list of some of them different types of photography and what types of jobs of work in each field:

1. Special events wedding photography can be a very rewarding career. Many professionals in the field revel in having the ability to capture happy memories of their clients in the House. Most photographers in this field start in a small study, then we move on and opened his own Studio. Owning your own Studio can be hard work, by what some people prefer to go to an association with an another colleague to share the costs and responsibilities of owning a Studio.

2. graduation photography, may or may not be separate wedding and special events. Some photographic studios engage only to take pictures of the graduation all year long. Take pictures of the school has become more popular. Many studios offer a personalized service to its customers. For example, pull themselves to a variety of images either indoors or outdoors for each team client brings to the study. A high school student can wear jeans and a top outdoor table and use a stylish outfit for a session inside.

3. photographing the nature also can be a career very gratifying. The first choice of career that comes to mind is shot photos for National Geographic, which would be very funny what to do all the time. A lot of travel is involved in shooting photos of nature to any magazine or newspaper. Nature can include live animals in their natural habitat and non-living beings in their natural habitat. With this theme, usually you would be working for a magazine and would travel to a journalist to any site is chosen for the article.

4. Finally, another popular address for photographers is to shoot models for magazines and fashion shows. This is a very difficult field to enter because it is considered as the most glamorous. Many people would love to take part in photo shoots with models and celebrities for one of the most popular magazines, but there are a limited number of jobs in this type of industry.

contrary to popular belief, there are so many directions that one can take their photography careers in a time that finished with schooling. You decide will depend on how you want to spend the rest of his career. If you want to settle, stay in one place and have a family then perhaps from his own Studio would be better for you and doing special events could be good for you. If you want to travel a lot and maybe not settle anywhere in particular, then maybe nature photography track would be better, since for any type of journal nature photography usually requires a lot of travel.


Commercial Print Modeling Vs Editorial Print Modeling

This entry was posted in News on by .

when you think or hear the word “commercial” in regards to the modeling industry, there are some variations of meaning, but in the most practical way on photography “impression” that the word “promote”. Model work is to be photographed “promotion” of a product or service in a print ad (for example… in magazines, brochures, newspapers, catalogs, etc.). There are numerous opportunities for COMMERCIAL PRINT MODELS that exist in all United States and internationally. The announcement may vary from the smallest business promoting their ‘ sustenance to large corporations that have their own marketing campaigns advertising agencies.

commercial print modeling is very different from the modeling of print publishing. Remember that a “publishing” is a fashion magazine “history” of the trend that is occurring in that precise moment, not an ad specific for any a company, although can see multiple credits cited in small print of them shops and designers of them garments outstanding and accessories. Some ads that can be seen in magazines can be elaborately extended and photographed in an “editorial style”, but ultimately is an ad for “commercial” If you are promoting a company name. It is an ingenious, high fashion looking for ad, however, because a is the announcement of style that is marketing to their target consumers.

generally, however, the publishing model and style of modeling do not represent the particular aspect that can be marketed to a large group of average consumers, “every day” (also known as people who buy). Consumers buy ads that can relate or reach. This is where a business model can have a wonderful chance of success because its image is a part of the process of marketing, selling to the consumer. They represent a highly accessible and marketable look. Therefore, for any product you are promoting their appearance can vary depending on which product or service being advertised to the consumer. That means that the door is open to many different types and sizes of the models. Please note, that there are actually some fashion editorial models that are able to cross next to different commercial advertising editorial modeling. It is ideal for a model career wanting to longevity. Business model does not generally have a look while there may be a special look that hired over and over again.

here is where variations in terminology are and can cause confusion for if a model is considered a type of editorial or commercial-type model. Do you remember the prestigious title? It is on publishing models, but there is something wonderful to say to be a successful business model of work, also. “Commercial” is a term which the public in general thinks advertisements you see on television or hear on the radio. The terminology used by a front of a modeling agency advertising agency when it refers to “commercial” has varying degrees of meanings, depending on how you interpret the reserve.

be in a television commercial is a type of opportunity that can use business models, but it is “NOT” why business models are called. For the purposes of a commercial type of the model, the doors are open to almost anyone who does not have the ability to be either photogenic for photos or having adequate and accessible personality seeks to promote a product. Model range can vary from being outwardly very attractive to people who have a great “character” face or personality (a.k.a. character model). Fashion have their place for business models (also known as commercial fashion models) for the sale of clothing or accessories that are being advertised in catalogues, exhibitions and certain ads in magazines (not publishing stories).

the context to explain where the use of the terms “business model” may vary depending on who refers to the reserve… an advertising agency, an agency of business models or fashion of “Specialized” publishing Agency. (Also known as advertising agencies) advertising agencies are hired on behalf of a company that wants your product or service promoted. Advertising agencies in general be responsible for how the product or service will be promoted and handles usually hire the staff necessary to complete the work as photographers and models, also. If the campaign is to promote a product of “fashion”, then the “advertising” agency refers to this as a work of “fashion”. Here is where the slight confusion of terms is only a technicality. A “Publishing” modeling agency do not relate to the work of “fashion” as “publishing” and it will be more likely to like shopping advertisement. So, here is the point of view of the advertising agency reserves a ‘model’, but perhaps the modeling agency refers to what is reservation of advertising in terms of a business model agency. Ultimately, someone is used, so congratulations to any type of model gets the job. Commercial engraving reserves for models represent much work all over the world, too, as well as high fashion modeling. The demand for models of catalog varies from city to city, as well as the prestige of the work.

while the “prestige” is usually a term used for bookings of the publishing model, there is a rare level of “exception” to the business models that work for ‘large’ fashion customers, also. Catalogs, beauty clients, customers of fashion of luxury and department stores with the “combination” fashion and commercial models for your printing job opportunities, too, that is different from the stories of fashion editorial. It’s high quality advertising! There are some rare models, “dual type” that can be in possibly the same type of magazines for its announcement of “commercial” so that its “publishing” fashion history. These companies want to show your name, company and product with a large effective representation, scale, so the bottom line is to “invest” in their ability to make money. Models of reserve is an investment of your money paid to advertising agency (or modeling agency) directly, so the capacity is essential to have the right model representing the market they are trying to get the “look” of the company to. The “prestige” in an opportunity of commercial printing is usually associated with the exclusive client, use of photographs or the amount of money paid for the business model.

commercial print models appear in magazines, newspapers, flyers/inserts newspaper ads, brochures, textbooks, brochures, billboards, Internet ads, hang tags, packaged food and other numerous product pictures (too many to list them all). We mentioned earlier that there is flexibility in the model appearance and size even. The requirements are not as stringent as the publishing model in terms of height, weight and body measurements, but the model hired to a commercial print job is obliged to fill the shoes of any “character” who have been hired to represent in front of the camera. The character is usually reserved by model that adapts to the nearest function as “young mama”, “middle-aged pilot”, “Executive”, “young nurse”, “College student”, etc. The company or advertising agency has their own idea of how they want to your product or service represented, so that the model must “see” and “project” part customer and photographer. It’s Act. The younger model is unlikely that an actor experienced or trained, but modeling is a version of role, so it is a personal trait that can improve the ability of the model to enter character. Actors compete for these jobs, so, in commercial printing, so it is not just for models of career. Everyone wants to work. Commercial print modeling may or may not be an option of a full-time career in comparison with the often hectic schedule of fashion publishing model.

the availability of a model flexibility is also a key requirement to get the job when jobs are available, too. Some reservations are made literally at the “last minute” when customers need someone a.s.a.p. for “whatever” reason can be found (a model that never showed up, a model must be replaced, etc.). There is often a team of people relying on “all” to do their jobs and are shown in the time. Time is something that is paid and a model should never assume that even five to fifteen minutes late is acceptable. This is not a social situation, but rather a professional, paid work. Be a little early is well worth the experience not to thwart a team of creative people and which allows a breathing time get into character. Time not should be considered as it appears at the exact moment that officially begins work. It is assumed that you should know to be a little soon to be with any necessary information, extra preparation or updates of what’s happening to reserve. Your mind must be open to any character who is portraying and how better can show any product or service implied by their poses and any accessories.

clothes may not always be provided by the customer… surprise! You don’t want to discover too late, either! This is part of the industry of commercial modeling where you can provide the “props” such as clothes, shoes, sunglasses, jewelry, etc. Even can be required to put in your own makeup and do your own hairstyle. It is not as glamorous as the public generally perceives, HUH? It all depends on the client’s budget, so you should be aware of this until they appear by the reserve. Always obtain the information of the Agency to book your time on any special considerations. Never hurts to check up on a potential client before a go-see, either, to learn what they do if you are not familiar with them. Giving you information that can help you get the job or be prepared to do the job even better is intelligent. (also known as “an elegant model”)


The Difference Between A Model And A Beauty Queen

This entry was posted in News on by .

is a big difference between beauty and modeling contests. Children of the parade are brought up believing that the focus is all about them; How are, what they can do and how to come across as an individual. You are taught to sell themselves. Unfortunately, in the real fashion world, it’s all about the product and sell the product. Although fashion and catwalk models need to have certain skills and specific aesthetic qualities, its main objective is to make a product look good, excite the customer and make you want to buy.

contest moms are known to be extremely competitive. Everyone wants to be at the top of the game, learn more about the industry, gaining the majority of the titles and crowns and have more beautiful, talented, loving child world peace in the whole world. But what these mothers do not realize is that their children are selling false hopes when they promise them that, one day, all final trials, dance classes, lessons in American history, and hair pulling will be worth. This is not the case. Many young parade princesses dreams are crushed when they discover all the years of intense training; rhythmically jump down the walkway, smiling at all the bared teeth and adorable banks your hair such as wink and flirt with the public, has made molding them in exactly what a fashion Agency does not seek in a model of Haute Couture.

Gets an enormous amount of time, effort and money in beauty pageants. A lot of moms parade will hire pageant coaches and trainers of dance, both at a great cost. Then will spend a fortune on equipment for each an of the different rounds. Elaborated, custom-made ball gowns, one of a type of swimsuit, costumes, props and stage for the talent show accessories, dresses etc. of the coronation. Then is the foot of height, 30-inch-long pieces of hair, custom molded dental flippers to hide any baby teeth / imperfect, many pairs of shoes with embedded diamonds, false eyelashes, jar after jar and tube after tube of bright pink blusher, foundation stage thick, lipstick and gloss. This is used to highlight features of the Princess parade, the body and the overall image and make look so unrealistic as possible, all in the hope of being crowned Queen of the parade.

fashion designers will also invest an enormous amount of time, effort and money in a fashion for clothes show. This money will be spent on lighting, sound engineers, stage, models, stylists and artists stand hair and makeup, all oriented to ensure that your clothing attracts the audience of buyers and celebrities.

in contrast to the girls of the parade, fashion models don’t try to steal the show. The point of a fashion show is to sell clothes, not people. If the model blew kisses, dances around the stage like a fairy, distracting the audience and did not look good dress, designer does not sell his clothing and therefore does not have a business. For this reason girls parade is difficult to make the transition from the Queen of beauty at the super model.

as well, if you’re a Queen’s contest, hoping to one day make it as a fashion model, you need to make sure that you understand the difference between the two. If you like the role, you can walk on stage without a face full of paint and hair style taller than a toddler, you’ll have to accept that the world of modeling is not just for you.
