How did you learn the specific fighting skills, like sword f

In actress plays a teenage girl who has trained since childhood to fight to the death in a post-apocalyptic arena. To embody the role, Rambin, 21, had to look the part of the young warrior and also be able to wield weapons convincingly — her character, Glimmer, is versed in sword fighting and archery.

Rambin talked with us about going beyond her physical comfort zone to prepare for the part, learning to fight in the wilderness and discovering what she's really capable of.

You had to get in excellent physical shape for "The Hunger Games." How long did you train, and what did you do?

I had about two months to prepare for the fight sequences and physically train. I did lots of spinning, probably an hour and a half a day. I also did boot-camp-style exercises — rolling kettle bells and balls that weighed 30 pounds across the room, using ropes, and rolling tires around, military style.

Every other day, on the days that we weren't training, I would go hiking or running around Los Angeles, by myself or with my friends. I also did some sprinting — I was pushing myself. Dieting was also a big part of it, so no dairy and no carbohydrates whatsoever.

How did you learn the specific fighting skills, like sword fighting and archery?

I trained different muscles of my body,christian louboutin shoes outlet, like my shoulder muscles and back muscles, for long periods of time. I had to thrash the weapons around like I knew what I was doing, and it was pretty difficult to get my muscles to memorize and acclimate to the different maneuvers. It hurt in places I never knew I had.

I trained in fight choreography and on camera with swords and weapons for about two hours a day, tossing them around like I was a skilled fighter. I was doing that whenever I was not doing the other training,cheap ralph lauren, whenever I could.

At the end, did you feel like you knew what you were doing?

I did, actually. The trainers were very thorough, and I'm pretty athletic. I enjoyed archery especially.

Before filming, you worked out in a studio in Los Angeles, but you shot the movie in the wilderness of North Carolina. Was it harder to do some of the moves outside?

It was different to be on grass and not to be comforted by padding. During filming, we also didn't have padding under our outfits,replica designer handbags, which were pretty flimsy, so it was a little bit difficult getting used to that. It was also really hot out there, and it would rain and stuff,christian louboutin heels, so we had to deal with the elements. But it was more natural and organic.

What was your pre-"Hunger Games" fitness routine like, and do you think you'll incorporate your new training techniques into it?

I was sort of just a casual exerciser. I would exercise all the time, but I would never push myself outside of my comfort zone. This showed me how far my body could go if I was willing to push it.

I also definitely learned what works for me,discount christian louboutin, what results I can see and what I like to do, so now that I'm doing another film I want to get back into that shape. I've already gotten back into the mind set of, "It's not the question of whether I'm going to work out, but how long I'm going to work out today." It's about disciplining myself and remembering how much I can handle, and not giving up.

DreamON app tested to determine whether it can help control

,cheap ralph lauren polo shirts

Whether it's a stroll on the beach, sitting in a tranquil garden or a trip in the space shuttle, controlling one's dreams might be made possible with a new app researchers are testing in a mass experiment.

Developed by British psychologist Richard Wiseman,christian louboutin sales, a professor at the University of Hertfordshire in England, the Dream:ON app plays a soundscape to evoke the sensation of being in a particular environment during the stage of sleep when dreams occur.

"If it's birds tweeting, then the idea is that you'll hear birds tweeting in your dream," Wiseman said.

There are 20 soundscapes with themes such as "Wild West," "Space Shuttle" and "A Trip to Tokyo." After choosing a wake-up time and soundscape, the user places the iPhone face down on the mattress and the app monitors body movements throughout the night.

During the last 20 minutes of sleep, the app plays the soundscape if the dreamer is in rapid eye movement sleep, a state when body movements are suppressed and dreams most likely occur.

The app activates the alarm when the user is coming out of REM sleep because there is only a 10-second window when a dream will be remembered, according to Wiseman.

"Ten seconds later and it's gone," he said,ralph lauren sale, adding that dreams are likely to occur in the last 20 minutes before waking.

Users are then prompted to submit their dream to the database, which Wiseman and his team will analyze.

The researchers also are studying whether they can help to induce lucid dreams, which is a state when you are conscious that you are dreaming and try to control the dreams.

"Some of our soundscapes have a voice-over which tells you that you're dreaming and that it's OK for you to take over that dream," Wiseman said.

According to Dr. Allan Hobson, a dream researcher and professor of psychiatry emeritus at Harvard University,http://www.cheapdesignerhandbagsgo.com, lucid dreaming is a rare occurrence.

"There's no question that you can influence the plot of your dreams. But lucid dreaming is rare because it's a design error; it shouldn't happen," Hobson said.

"The body doesn't want to be awake and asleep at the same time — the brain wants to be in one state or the other."

Since its launch at the Edinburgh International Science Festival last week, the app has had 300,000 downloads and has collected data from more than 200,cheap polo shirts,000 dreams.

Some girls may overestimate HPV vaccine protection - chicago

Some girls may be more likely to overestimate the protection they receive from the , new research shows.

Human papillomaviris, the most common sexually transmitted infection,ralph lauren polo shirts, can infect the genital areas of men and women,http://www.lovecheapdesignerbags.com, cause genital warts and raise the risk of cervical . The new study, this week by the Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, looked at the perception of risk among a population of 339 girls between age 13 and 21. At an average age of 16.8 years, 57.5% of these girls were sexually experienced, and most of them reported "continued need" to practice safe sex.

However,cheap replica handbags, a good 23.6% appeared to believe mistakenly that their risk of other was also lower -- even though the HPV vaccine does not protect against the rest of the pantheon of such diseases, such as HIV/AIDS, and .

On the bright side, the vast majority of surveyed girls believed in the need for safer sexual behaviors (only 3.8% perceived the need for safer practices at below a five on a 1-to-10 scale).

The researchers found that certain factors -- lower knowledge of HPV or the ; less concern about infection; and not using a condom the last time they had sex with a man -- correlated with a girl's perception of less need for safer sex behaviors.

Surprisingly, getting information from teachers was a factor as well. So was a mother getting information from a physician.

"Providers may be giving detailed counseling about vaccine effectiveness, which mothers may have difficulty understanding or conveying to their daughters,wholesale designer handbags," the researchers hypothesize. "Alternatively,designer handbags for sale, providers may be presenting overly simplistic messages about HPV vaccine efficacy or may not be communicating the need for continued safer sexual behaviors after receipt of the vaccine. This, in turn, may lead girls to feel more protected by the vaccine."

Romney disappointed in Obamas use of bin Laden anniversary -

On the anniversary of the targeted , said Tuesday that “any thinking American” would have given the order that President Obama gave to take out the terrorist leader and accused the president of politicizing the event.

“I acknowledge the president’s success. He has every right to take credit for him having ordered the attack. At the same time, I think it’s very disappointing for the president to try to make this a political item by suggesting that I wouldn’t have ordered such a raid,” Romney said on CBS’ “This Morning.” “Of course I would have. Any American,christian louboutin sale, any thinking American would have ordered exactly the same thing. But of course you give the president the credit for the fact that he did so.”

Romney’s comments were his most direct remarks about the matter, and came hours before he was to visit a firehouse with ,christian louboutin shoes cheap, who was mayor of at the time of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks that masterminded.

Romney was joined by his wife, Ann,cheap ralph lauren, who said she is frustrated by the narrative that her husband is “stiff.”

There’s a wild and crazy man inside just waiting to come out.”
