Losing weight is a billion dollar industry in America, there are thousands of devices and programs you can buy that promise to get you 6-pack abs fast but they dont work! If it were as easy as buying a pill, shake, or ab machine then the shopping malls across America you would see all men with rippling washboard abs and all women with flat tummies but what do we see instead? Obesity everywhere! Lets clear up one huge misconception right now, ab machines and ab exercises will NOT get you 6-pack abs! 95% of the work in getting 6-pack abs is losing bodyfat and no ab exercise will do that. If you have a beer belly, you could do ab exercises all year long and still never get 6-pack abs. You can have rippling muscular abs but if they are covered with an inner tube of fat then nobody is going see them. Its not that hard and its not that complicated. The changes you need to make to lose weight and reduce your bodyfat are much smaller than you fear and they are easier to live with than you could possibly imagine! A common sense approach involving exercise and nutrition is all that is required to get ripped, washboard abs. When most people think about losing weight, what comes to mind is words like hunger, deprivation, diet, and agony. No! Losing weight properly will not result in any of these, the key is in the above two words common sense.
Benedetta Ubertazzi argues that exclusive jurisdiction rules related to intellectual property rights cases are not only insufficiently supported by any of the arguments usually invoked in their favor, but are also in fact contrary to public international law rules concerning the avoidance of a denial of justice and the fundamental human right of access to a court. They should therefore be abandoned with respect to infringement and validity claims involving either registered or unregistered intellectual property rights. The author claims that this abandonment would be consistent with the clear trend already existing in this respect and would prevent economic inequalities in cross-border intellectual property litigation, without however leading to abusive forum shopping.
