    In BLYTHEVILLE: Understanding Links Between Smoking & Weight

    Maybe you quit smoking to do something good for your health, and now you’ve noticed the pounds adding up on the scale. Or maybe one of the reasons you’re not quite ready to quit is that you’re afraid of gaining weight.

    Here are some of the reasons why some people gain weight when they quit:

    • Smoking lowers your appetite.
      Smoking cigarettes makes you feel less hungry. So, when you quit smoking, you might feel hungrier and then eat more than you used to eat.  
    • Smoking increases your metabolism.
      Smoking cigarettes increases your metabolism, so you burn more calories. So when you stop smoking, you may burn fewer calories which can lead to weight gain. 
    • Eating can be a substitute for smoking.
      Smoking gave you something to do with your hands and something to put in your mouth. For a lot of people, food replaces cigarettes. And the more you reach for food, the more likely it is that you will gain weight.
    • Eating may soothe the feelings that smoking used to soothe.
      Maybe smoking was your go-to when you were feeling bad. When you stop smoking, you may find that you turn to eating to feel better or to deal with stress—but this can backfire and result in weight gain.

    The good news is that you can take charge of your weight even while quitting smoking. Check out Forever Free for more info about smoking and weight.

  • Two years of community college free for responsible students in BLYTHEVILLE

    The President unveiled a new proposal: Make two years of community college free for responsible students across America.

    In our growing global economy, Americans need to have more knowledge and more skills to compete -- by 2020, an estimated 35 percent of job openings will require at least a bachelor's degree, and 30 percent will require some college or an associate's degree. Students should be able to get the knowledge and the skills they need without taking on decades' worth of student debt.


    The numbers:

    If all 50 states choose to implement the President's new community college proposal, it could:

    • Save a full-time community college student $3,800 in tuition per year on average
    • Benefit roughly 9 million students each year

    Under President Obama's new proposal, students would be able to earn the first half of a bachelor's degree, or earn the technical skills needed in the workforce -- all at no cost to them.


    The requirements:

    • What students have to do: Students must attend community college at least half-time, maintain a 2.5 GPA, and make steady progress toward completing their program.
    • What community colleges have to do: Community colleges will be expected to offer programs that are either 1) academic programs that fully transfer credits to local public four-year colleges and universities, or 2) occupational training programs with high graduation rates and lead to in-demand degrees and certificates. Community colleges must also adopt promising and evidence-based institutional reforms to improve student outcomes.
    • What the federal government has to do: Federal funding will cover three-quarters of the average cost of community college. Participating states will be expected to contribute the remaining funds necessary to eliminate the tuition for eligible students.

    Expanding technical training programs:

    President Obama also proposed the new American Technical Training Fund, which will expand innovative, high-quality technical training programs across the country. Specifically, the fund will award programs that:

    • Have strong employer partnerships and include work-based learning opportunities
    • Provide accelerated training
    • Accommodate part-time work
