Build A Body Kid's Fitness, Inc. (BABKF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to fighting the childhood obesity epidemic in the USA. Approximately 17% (or 12.5 million) of children and adolescents aged 2-19 years are obese.
Since 1980, the obesity prevelance among children and adolescents has almost tripled.
There are significant racial and ethnic disparities in obesity prevalence among U.S. children and adolescents. In 2007-2008, Hispanic boys, aged 2-19 years, were significantly more likely to be obese than non-Hispanic white boys, and non-Hispanic black girls were significantly more likely to be obese than non-Hispanic white girls.
As an Australian resident with a Chilean background, my husband, being from Colombia has endured hard times when it comes to processing paperwork within the Colombian embassy.
We've had to spend unnecessary amount of time and money paying for flights to Canberra/Sydney just so we could get a simple stamp verifying particular documents for DIAC (Department of Immigration and Citizenship), thus meaning taking time off from work and ensuring we can get to Canberra before Colombia's embassy closing time, and furthermore waiting several hours to board a plane back to Melbourne.
In addition to making this hasty and horrendous trip, we've had to endure unprofessional-ism from a particular staff member there (Colombian Embassy), who still undertakes class discrimination in her stride as though it exists here.

Ukraine has been an independent nation since 1991.
Ukraine, with over 48 Million people is situated geographically in the centre of Europe. It history and struggle for independence spans hundreds of years.
In 1991 Ukraine declared independence form the former Soviet Union and in doing so created a free independent democratic state. Something that Ukraine has sought for hundreds of years.
In August 2004 Ukraine (which has limited economic resources) appointed its first official ambassador to Australia, Dr. Olexandr P. Mischenko.
Currently Australia's diplomatic representation to Ukraine is via the Australian Embassy based in Moscow, Russia.
The time has come for Australia to recognise Ukraine as an independent state and to demonstrate its commitment to the people of Ukraine and Australia by establishing an Australian embassy and the appointment of an Australian Ambassador to Ukraine.
