Donda West, the mother and onetime manager of rapper Kanye West, died Saturday in Los Angeles.

Her publicist, Patricia Green, told BBC News she passed away "as the result of complications from a cosmetic surgical procedure," but gave no more details. West's spokesman said the family "asks for privacy during this time of grief."

West, 58, a retired professor and former chairwoman of the Chicago State University English department, was a tireless supporter of her son as he both earned success and stirred up controversy.

You Said

That's why I've never had cosmetic surgery; I have to at least get my youngest raised but maybe this will serve as a reminder that people do sometimes die from cosmetic surgery. It isn't worth it.

I agree, this is very sad. After his brushes with trauma in the past, it is unfortunate something so unnecessary has now deprived them both of enjoying his current successes together and in the future.

Maybe in the future it'll do even better in those areas, but for now it's a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard.

We have all noticed them. The huge guys at the gym, lifting huge stacks associated with plates and grunting as well as sweating like their head is about to explode. Their arms are busting out of their shirts and their legs seem like they belong to a horse-a muscular horse. Who would like to look like that? This is one of the main reasons that some people, although they want to lost weight and look great, refuse to strength train. They are scared that obtaining the heavy iron will turn them into hulking behemoths which can't put their arms down by their part. Nothing could be further from your truth.

Lifting weights will never turn you into the bodybuilder overnight. Getting the kind of muscle you see on those big boys in the gym takes years (10-15) associated with work, incredibly long workout routines, and sometimes, a little -help- from a not so natural source-if you get my drift. For most of us, adding weight training into our exercise regimen will do exactly what we want it to. Weight training will help you to lose weight, get in shape, and look better at the beach. You see, for every ounce of muscle you build, your body will speed up its own internal fat reduction process. The more muscle Inversion Table you build, the more fat you had been burn. Now, muscle DOES weigh more than fat, but don't let that scare you. I am talking about, what do you really care about, how much you bodyweight, or what you seem like with your shirt away? That is the real test if improving your physique is at the top of your priority list. The majority of us just want to watch the scales and find out the pounds come flowing off, but when you are regularly training with weights, this oftentimes does certainly not happen. As you are losing fat, you are building muscles, so your weight may stay the same, but your body might look drastically different. Your own clothes will fit much better, the people at the office will begin to look at your differently so when beach time comes, you will be the first to rip off your shirt!

So, how do you get started with a good weight training course? The last thing you should do is hit the gym and start blasting out arm curls with absolutely no idea of what you are doing. Weight training is serious business and can be very dangerous. One wrong move and you could wind up lying in bed for 6 months watching your system slip into worse shape than before you decide to started. A solid rule of thumb when beginning to use weights is to partner plan someone who knows what they are doing. This could be a friend who has plenty of experience or better however, a personal trainer. A qualified personal trainer can walk you through a step by step process of building a powerful weight training program that will help you to reach your goals while avoiding injury along the way.

So the next time you think about lifting weights, you might not conjure a vision of the well oiled massive number posing in tiny trunks; you may see yourself, ripped, in form, and looking fantastic because of your weight training system.

I wanted to post you a bit of note to help thank you very much yet again over the unique methods you've contributed on this page. It is really remarkably generous with you to present unhampered all that some people would have sold for an ebook to make some profit for themselves, particularly seeing that you might well have tried it if you considered necessary. The techniques also served as the fantastic way to be aware that other people have the same fervor just like my own to know the truth whole lot more in terms of this condition.
