Somebody Watching You? Peeping Toms Lurking Everywhere!

Citizens all over the world are not safe from Peeping Toms. Venice police just caught a man who had photographed the backsides of over 3,000 women, as they strolled around San Marco square. The man tailed the women wearing short skirts, carrying a bag with a camera, and filming their tails through a small hole in the bag.

Apparently, the Peeping Tom wasn't who you would imagine — authorities say he is a working professional with two young children and a wife. The man faces six months to four years in prison. The Venice case might be the tip of a Peeping-Tom trend. To see who else has been sneaking around,

.

In Canada, a 46-year-old man has evaded authorities for 14 years, enjoying his extensive library of women he videotaped through their home windows. He collected the footage in order to pursue his fantasies. Officers have only watched about 20 hours of the 90 hours of footage. Hm. Can you imagine being the officers who have to watch that creep show?

And an even more outrageous story comes right out of Charlotte, NC. Police chased a naked (gasp!) peeping Tom, and registered sex offender. When he resisted arrest, the policed stunned the man, who was wearing only tennis shoes, four times. I hope they were careful!

Do you have your own Peeping Tom story? Do these instances of voyeurism make you especially nervous now that videos can make it onto the Internet so easily? What type of sentence should be given to these serious privacy offenders?

I can't figure out what I want to eat tonight. I am at a food block.

I mostly eat a lot of meat, fish, and fruits. That's always kept me a little too skinny for my own taste, so now I make myself have a few sandwiches or bread-type things through the week, and it's a much better balance overall. Mmm. Speaking of meat, I can't wait for dinner.

Well i belong to a gym, so maybe I will face my fear and go this week. I am actually quite shy in person. I do eat a clean diet. I never eat processed foods, and am a fruit and veggie nut. I do need more fiber in my diet, I know that.

Here you go Kris...it's just from wikipedia (I know, I know) but it's what has been helping my roommate. He said the breathing is most helpful. All persons experiencing persistent and frequent panic attacks should consult their physicians. However, many experienced sufferers treat panic attacks with some the following methods and techniques: * Diaphragmatic Breathing or Abdominal Breathing — Breathing slowly through the nose using the diaphragm and abdomen. Do not breathe through the mouth. Focus on exhaling very slowly. This will correct or prevent an imbalance of oxygen to carbon dioxide in the blood stream. (Bourne 2005) * Taking anti-anxiety medication — to be used under the guidance and direction of a physician. * Staying in the Present — rather than having "what if" thoughts that are future oriented asking yourself, "what is happening now" and "how do I wish to respond to it". (Carbonell 2004) * Acceptance and Acknowledgement- accepting and acknowledging the panic attack. (Carbonell 2004) * Floating with the symptoms — allowing time to pass and floating with the symptoms rather than trying to make them better or fighting them. (Carbonell 2004) * Coping Statements — repeated as part of an internal monologue o "No one has ever died from an anxiety attack." o "I will let my body do its thing. This will pass." o "I can be anxious and still deal with this situation." o "This does not feel great, but I can deal with it". (Bourne 2005) * Talking with a supportive person — someone who has experienced true panic attacks personally; someone who is highly trained in treating panic attacks; loved ones who can offer support and comfort.

Well pilates shouldn't be intimidating... just buy a dvd or go take a mat class somewhere like the ymca with old people. I did crunches and other weights for years and nothing but muscle+fat. As soon as I started pilates I noticed a very big difference in the flatness. Clean diet is not eating a lot of processed foods, lots of veggies/fruits/fiber/lean protein and water...

Well I am not sure what constitutes a clean diet, and I don't do pilates, because I am too shy, but I do get regular cardia, and I do 500 crunches every other day, and I do weights on my stomach up to 90 lbs. I have muscle, there is just a layer of fat over it.

I hold my weight in the stomach too! Best thing for that besides a clean diet and regular cardio - pilates. It's flattened my stomach tremendously. we ARE the perfect woman. that should be our campaign slogan in '12

i'd like to take some from my stomach and redistribute it around. right now I feel like a clay model that the sculptor didn't quite finish. for instance, he forgot to smooth out all the fingertip bumps on my butt, aka hail damage.

I wish my curves would not go in rolls on my stomach. That is where I carry all my weight, and I hate it. I have the hardest time getting rid of it.
