Amidst claims of skirting the issue and producing a show which masquerades as family television while showing and glorifying premarital sex, Secret Life has drawn ire from the likes of the Parents Television Council.
However, as I said earlier, I find the show closely resembles the high school experience minus the violence and criminality. No human being has ever gone through those years without thinking about sex or wanting to act on it.
Life and the situations therein can’t be swept under the carpet and ignored or they will continue to perpetuate themselves. People complain about MTV’s Teen mom but at least it presents an accurate representation of the trials and tribulations that teen parents face. Instead of running a planned rerun show this past weekend, Saturday Night Live aired an hour-long episode dedicated to the late music icon Prince. Steph Curry has turned himself into a bonafide NBA superstar over the course of the last two seasons.
Lenda Asberry, 62, and her four grandchildren were killed this week as they tried to escape a flash flood in the rural town of Palestine, TX.
When a video that featured Nick Young talking about cheating on his fiancee Iggy Azalea surfaced last month courtesy of Young’s own teammate D’Angelo Russell, Iggy was not happy about it. Kid Ink and Pink Dolphin bumped fists and launched the “Alumni” capsule for Summer 2015!
Dolly Parton‘s secret tattoos made its debut on the red carpet this week — nestled in her cleavage! Dolly Parton’s name runs around with several rumours about her tattoos strategically covered up with long sleeves and just-long-enough dresses through the years. You all know about Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Tia and Tamera Mowry and Joel and Benji Madden, but did you realize that Alanis Morissette was a twin?
Believe it or not, there are over a dozen celebrities who grew up sharing a special connection with a twin of their own, including Scarlett Johansson, Vin Diesel, Ashton Kutcher and Gisele Bundchen. Gisele's sister Patricia may not be a supermodel, but she's equally as gorgeous as her Victoria's Secret Angel twin. Helga Geraldine Pataki is a fictional character and the deuteragonist and a semi-antagonist in the Nickelodeon animated television series Hey Arnold! Helga's second name is Geraldine, and is a tribute to former Nickelodeon executive Geraldine Laybourne. She is allergic to strawberries (see "Quantity Time"), which cause her to break out in hives.
Helga is secretly in love with Arnold, despite the fact that she is constantly teasing him and calling him names (usually "Football Head", in reference to his rather oddly shaped head). Although Helga fully acknowledges to herself her feelings regarding Arnold, she opts to keep them private by publicly denying and rejecting Arnold through displays of verbal abuse. Despite her mean front and harsh treatment of Arnold, she occassionally interacts with him as friends, sometimes even calling him "Football Head" as a nickname instead of an insult. In contrast to Helga's feelings towards Arnold, she is almost always followed by Brainy in each episode, where he is right behind her, breathing very hard (usually after one of Helga's emotional monologues).
Helga's very jealous of Lila, who Arnold has a crush on from "Arnold & Lila" to "Timberly Loves Arnold". At one point, Lila helps Helga to act more kindly towards others when Helga decides that she needs to be more "Lila-like" in order for Arnold to return her affections. After Lila's first appearance, Helga doesn't seem to have many actual negative feelings towards her (besides finding her sickeningly sweet and annoying) when Arnold's not involved, as seen in "Eugene, Eugene!", when she stops a can of paint from falling on her when she realizes Arnold won't "get" Lila in the play.
Fans have speculated that part of the reason Lila refuses to return Arnold's affections is that she does not wish to come between him and Helga. Like the other characters on the show, Helga's attire rarely changes: she usually wears a pink dress with a red stripe over a white shirt and a large pink bow in her hair. Her father, a successful pager salesman who suffers from workaholism, rarely notices her existence, favoring her over-achieving, neurotic college-aged sister Olga, who Helga rarely gets along with. Big Bob does pay more attention to Helga when city contests occur, but only for selfish reasons or to make Helga into a copy of Olga. Although Big Bob is far more boorish in personality, he and Helga share some similarities that occasionally bond them.
Though apathetic at home, it is suggested in multiple episodes that Miriam is capable, but stunted by her marriage to an overbearing Big Bob Pataki. In the episode, "Helga on the Couch", she has a flashback to when she was asking her family who would take her to preschool. Although Helga at one time says Olga attends Bennington College, it is discovered in the episode "Olga Comes Home" that she attends Wellington College.
In the episode "Big Sis", it is evident that Olga and Lila Sawyer have similar personalities and interests.
In the episode "Road Trip", Helga turns on the car radio to a Hard Rock music station, suggesting that she enjoys music within the Rock genre. In "School Play", Helga's mother, Miriam, yells into her bedroom and asks her if she remembered to take her constipation medicine in which Helga responds with a yes. In an episode of The Angry Beavers ("Dumbwaiters") the beavers once showed Helga Pataki's mask within a set of scary masks. Every time Helga signs her name on something that outwardly states her feelings to Arnold, it always ends up in Arnold's hands, leading her to take extreme measures to get it back or destroy it. From the show itself or comments from Craig Bartlett, it is affirmed that only four Hey Arnold! Helga may be mean, but whenever the situation is right, she can be characterized as caring, deep, and serious towards the people she's close to like Phoebe, Arnold (when she disguised herself as Cecile), Olga (once in a while) and her parents (to some extent). In the episode "April Fool's Day", Arnold mentioned (when giving a gag present to Helga) that Helga's birthday was "last week," which means that her birthday falls on a day between March 19 and March 31 (and makes her an Aries). A Disney character, Isabella Garcia-Shapiro from the cartoon Phineas and Ferb, has a similar outfit to Helga Pataki's.
Grandpa sometimes calls her "your ugly friend with the one eyebrow." (in reference to her monobrow).
In the episode "Girl Trouble", Grandpa tells Arnold that he sometimes sees Helga skipping rope outside of the boarding house, waiting for Arnold to come out.
Helga appears to like the color pink, because throughout the show, almost all of her outfits are pink, including in a scene from "Married" where at the end, in which Helga and Arnold are married and she is wearing a pink dress.
Some information about The Patakis has leaked through Craig Bartlett's chats and interviews.
Following your response to the poll we ran back in February, we’ve been focusing on the topic of concealed firearms throughout the Spring at Lucky Gunner Lounge.
In just the last couple of years, we’ve seen dozens of products pop onto the market that offer alternative ways for storing and hiding guns in your home besides the traditional gun safe. This curio cabinet from American Furniture Classics holds up to ten long guns in a sliding hidden compartment. The advantages of hiding firearms inside what appears to be everyday furniture are obvious. Now imagine your piece of furniture with the clever secret compartment has been tossed over on its side.
No matter how clever the hiding spot, you can’t trick a house fire into skipping over your hidden gun safe. The CouchBunker from the BedBunker company is one hidden gun safe that does come with a fire rating. According to Department of Justice statistics, 230,000 firearms are stolen every year, most of those from the homes and vehicles of private citizens. In a survey of incarcerated criminals who were arrested while in possession of a firearm, 37% said they obtained their gun through theft or the black market. Part of being a responsible gun owner is to not make it easy for your guns to be added to those statistics.
Good point samuel, those could be in no way what they meant when they said high priced accessories. There is also a Company called Taticalwalls they make in plain sight weapon securement systems that are actually pretty good.
Top Secret Furniture has unique designs that are one of kind to hide your weapons and valuables in plain sight. When the time comes that we no longer are aloud to keep a firearm the first place the government is going to go to round up the guns are to the insurance companies to get a list of everyone who has guns insured. There is nothing in his post even mentioning furniture but he does lead with comments on gun ownership and insurance. Why would you even think to have someone order a custom table for you when there are FFL records of your actual firearm purchases? Read previous post:Shooting and Carrying a $250 Handgun: CZ-83 Review Part 2Concealed Carry on a Budget Have you ever been broke? Lady Gaga, Beyonce, and Keeping Up With the Kardashians can all be placed in this category, along with The Secret Life Of The American Teenager.

However, having seen this show on a few occasions (only when I was seeing a young lady who watched it), I have to say it is the most accurate depiction of the American high school experience I have ever seen on television. However, the thing that probably really gives parents and critics pause about this show is that it was created by Brenda Hampton, who is also responsible for the popular, long-running series 7th Heaven. It would seem a great deal of the outraged parents and critics have not been to their children’s high schools. The only difference between older generations and today is that to older generations certain things seem uncouth, so those thoughts were looked down upon, especially if acted upon. If indivduals have a problem with shows that depict real life then they should deal with real life, not entertainment that makes them face it. It presents teen pregnancy as just a minor irritation at the best or a great way to catch a guy at the worst. It doesn’t work out with free childcare and guys fighting over you and everyone being super excited.
She can also be very cynical and bossy, bullying her 4th-grade classmates with an iron fist, and often taking advantage of her best friend, Phoebe, making her a bit of a spoiled brat. However, Helga also has a much softer side, which becomes apparent when she is alone and involved in her school work. In the episode "The Aptitude Test", in which the class takes a standardized exam, it is eventually revealed that she achieved a perfect score on the test and the most outstanding result since her perfectionist sister, Olga Pataki, took the test. She makes rude remarks and does not hesitate to use or threaten physical force to get her way, which intimidates many of her classmates. Their relationship is the most catalytic in the show, and provides the dramatic momentum for many episodes. It is suggested in various episodes that Helga treats Arnold as such due to her fear that revealing her true feelings would cause her embarrassment and humiliation.
Regardless of her exterior behavior, Helga is devoted to Arnold and goes out of her way to help him, even if she has to give up something to do so, as seen in "Arnold's Christmas" and Hey Arnold!
Events in episodes like "Married", with Arnold's nightmare of married life climaxing with a heartfelt attempt by the dream Helga to express her love, also implies he has as much trouble as Helga has coming to terms with how deep his feelings are. Though it's apparent that he is in love with Helga, she never Helga punching Brainy returns the feelings as mutual; on scant occasions, she has kissed him due to something going right for her.
Unlike Helga, Lila displays indiscriminating compassion, intelligence, and stylishness — all qualities Helga both resents and outwardly lacks. In "School Play", Lila's the last girl Helga has to get to drop out of the play so she can be Juliet and have an excuse to kiss Arnold, who's playing Romeo, in the final scene.
The conflict between Phoebe's quieter, less demanding personality and Helga's more aggressive one occasionally emerges in episodes such as "Hall Monitor", "Pre-Teen Scream", and "Phoebe Breaks a Leg".
She has bright, blonde hair, which she wears in long pigtails without any visible hair ties, and a black unibrow. Her parents are neglectful and do not pay much attention to her in a majority of the episodes, she also calls them by their first names. Helga usually refers to him as "Bob" or "Big Bob," indicating she does not really see him as her father.
In "Spelling Bee", Big Bob has much pride in his family name, pushing Helga to win the trophy that belongs to all of the Patakis.
In "Olga Gets Engaged", Miriam advises Olga not to make the same marital mistake she did, and in "Road Trip", Miriam reveals that she used to be a rodeo queen. She and Helga do not relate to each other well, causing great conflict and resentment between the two (much of the resentment is exerted by Helga, for Olga doesn't seem to resent her little sister at all).
In the flashback, she is ignored because they are too absorbed into the piano music that Olga is playing. Helga is thrilled to hear this because that means that Olga will be preoccupied with some other child. Helga is amused by the idea of Olga marrying Doug LeSham because that would mean that Olga would fall from grace with their parents.
Phil speculates that Helga has a crush on Arnold in the episode "Girl Trouble", and Patty asks Helga if she and Arnold "have a thing for each other" in the episode "Helga vs. Among fans, Helga's birthday is often considered to be on March 25, the average date, or in March 26, Francesca Smith's birthday, making her an Aries. This contradicts with her image as a tomboy because pink is usually considered a girlish color. Most of the kids from Hey Arnold are in The Patakis except for Arnold who has moved away, making Helga the star of the series.
Most of the content so far has revolved around gear and techniques for carrying concealed handguns. The most popular fad in firearms storage right now seems to be the secret compartment gun cabinet. You can’t help but get that warm and fuzzy secret agent feeling any time you activate the magnetic switch on your bedside table to reveal a waiting handgun and high powered flashlight.
While they may not have an advanced degree in Residential Security Circumvention, many career burglars have the equivalent life experience.
Though there are some exceptions, most of the secret compartment type furniture is not designed to protect the contents from fire. So if the worst happens and your whole collection disappears in a break in, your insurance will still cover it, right? If your gun collection is worth more than that, you’ll need to purchase a rider, or buy firearms insurance from another company.
My own insurance company will cover an additional $5,000 worth of firearms for $60 per year, and up to $10,000 for $110 annually.
The number of children accidentally killed by firearms is at an all time low, but it still happens and not all gun safes are as child proof as you might think. There are dozens of effective ways to store your firearms safely, and whether you choose a traditional safe, or some other hiding spot, be sure to think critically about how hard it really is for a determined person (whether child or criminal) to work their way around your security plan. The government also keeps a eye on websites like this trust me i have family in the government and i know 1st hand.
The show deals with teenagers, parents, sex and high school (which most of us get to know all too well over those tumultuous four years between junior high and the real world). Because that show dealt with the wholesome family of a preacher and how family members dealt with their respective issues and mostly stayed true to their values, many probably expected the same type of show from Hampton this time around. She is very emotional, and as such, able to comprehend a spectrum of emotions such as love and hate.
Presumably, however, the types of grades she receives on an average basis in school vary from low to high — in the episode "Quantity Time", Helga tells her parents that she failed another math test at school, though in "A Day in the Life of a Classroom", her teacher Mr. Various episodes have Helga going to comical extremes to prevent her secret from being exposed. The show's producer, Craig Bartlett, revealed during an Internet chat that had the second movie, The Jungle Movie been made (which it will since Nickelodeon recently greenlit it[1]), Arnold would have realized he and Helga were meant for each other, and finally reciprocated her feelings.
Usually every encounter with Brainy has Helga punching him between the eyes, which became a running gag for the series — indeed, in one episode in which Helga believed she had lost contact with her emotions and simply responded casually to Brainy and left, he became nervous and ended up punching himself. The two do not get along very well from Helga's perspective, though Lila is as kind and friendly to Helga as she is to everyone else.
All of Helga's attempts to get Lila to drop out fail, but Lila reveals that she knows why Helga wants the part of Juliet so badly---and admits that she's always sort of suspected that Helga had a crush on Arnold.
Phoebe often follows Helga around, taking down notes and appearing more as an assistant rather than a friend to Helga. She has made some appearances in other outfits, though: throughout the show's run, she has dressed up as a French girl, a hall monitor, a sophisticated lady, and others (see Screenshots section). However, two episodes that feature Helga getting attention from her parent's are "Quantity Time" and in "The Beeper Queen".
In most episodes, Big Bob prefers to watch television than listen to Helga, absentmindedly calling her "Olga" instead. They also share similar speaking patterns, though Helga possesses a better command of language.
Miriam's abilities are showcased in "The Beeper Queen", where she fills in for Big Bob at his Beeper Emporium when he must stay home due to a back injury.
Helga is jealous of Olga's image of perfection and the attention she receives from both of their parents, Big Bob and Miriam.
He tells Helga that Olga had to spell the word "qualm" and nailed it by remembering the silent letter "l".
But on the day of Olga's wedding, Helga catches Doug talking to another woman on the phone and knows that he is not faithful.
It is at the end of the story that Olga reveals to the students that the story was about Helga, who was a bedwetter until the age of 7.
This could be because when Helga first met Arnold, he complimented her bow saying it was pink like her pants and she most likely adopted the color pink as her favorite because of this. But as I promised back when the poll results came in, our coverage of “concealed firearms” will be broader than just handguns, so now it’s time for something completely different.

There’s always been DIY home-made or professional custom one-off furniture available with drawers, shelves, and compartments hidden in every conceivable location, but the small boutique custom furniture shops that specialize in camouflaged gun storage are enjoying a new surge in popularity.
The need for complex locks or heavy metal doors is not as great since the location of the items is secret. If you have firearms you consider irreplaceable, make sure they’re stored in a fire-resistant safe. The same rules usually apply to other valuables such as jewelry, coin collections, and hand tools as well.
The main character, Amy Juergens (played by Shailene Woodley), becomes pregnant in the first season and she and her friends end up dealing with the consequences of sex and relationships while still just trying to figure out who they are.
Secret Life has the potential to bring things up for discussion so that the proper lessons can be taught and learned (assuming anyone actually watches TV with, talks to, or spends time with their kids anymore). I don’t know what school you went to, but this is hardly typical of the experiences of a high school teen mother. I think instead of hating the show The Secret Life of the American Teenager, parents need to watch it and get serious about talking to their kids about sex. Simmons encourages Helga to help Harold because she received excellent scores on the past two math exams.
In the latter, Helga confesses her to Arnold after being caught by him helping save their neighborhood, though the two both agree afterward that it was in the heat of the moment.
Craig Barlett confirmed that they do get together in the future, and eventually get married as adults.
Helga's jealousy of Lila worsens when Olga "adopts" Lila in a "big sisters" program in the episode "Big Sis". However, the two do care about each other, as they listen to each other's concerns and help each other out. In the pilot and clay animation shorts, Helga's outfit consists of a dark pink dress with sleeves and a white collar.
He sometimes calls her "the girl" instead of her full name, another evidence of rarely noticing her. Miriam packs Helga an exceptionally nutritious lunch, shares stories and listens to Helga, and helps Helga with her homework — all implying that Miriam is held back by her unemployment and marriage to Big Bob, affecting Helga's own upbringing. Olga is kind to Helga, but Helga does not respond to her kindness because she feels it is insincere, as Olga does not listen to Helga's more serious concerns about their family and relationship.
Olga, only fifteen years old and already a piano concertist and class valedictorian!" It can be assumed that Olga is approximately 10–12 years older than Helga. Bob then tells Helga that that was Olga's first big win and that after that she won more contests and earned so many trophies that the room as time went on became nearly full of trophies. It was structured like The Simpsons; three acts in one half hour, Craig Bartlett wrote a pilot script with Michelle Lamoreaux in 2000. Some of the designs are even being mass produced, and the smaller pieces like hallway mirrors and end tables with hidden gun compartments are more affordable than ever.
You could conceivably set up your home so that a firearm is always within arm’s reach, no matter where you are in the house.
Maybe you found the Christmas presents in November, or you knew exactly where mom hid your Game Boy when you were grounded. Your local fire department can give you some advice about how long your valuables are likely to last in a fire, if you have any doubts about the manufacturer’s claimed fire rating. For high-value collections, the insurance company may require an itemized list of your collection, along with serial numbers, descriptions, and photographs of each item.
Those who are offended by this show should deal with the issues addressed instead of changing the channel. Also, the obsession with sex that these teens have is so stereotypical and overplayed in EVERY SINGLE EPISODE. Now my daughter is only 4 and I know I have a long way to go but this show has all the questions in mind that I should ask her when she grows up. Her bad grades are most likely caused by her lack of motivation, attention, and academic concern.
In one of the show's most noteworthy episodes, "Helga on the Couch", she actually discusses her obsession with the school psychiatrist. Phoebe knows about Helga's love for Arnold (though it's not shown exactly when she finds out) and is understanding of Helga's rocky relationship with her family. Helga also received attention from her family when she went missing during the Thanksgiving Special. Olga condescends to Helga, calling her "baby sister" and refusing to address the problems in their family. He then shows Helga an empty space on the shelf and tells her that it is reserved for her own spelling bee trophy. At the end of the episode, Helga approaches Olga and admits that she is jealous of her relationship with Lila. She threatens to press the redial button to spill the news of his marriage to the other woman.
In theory, the unassuming camouflage will fool burglars, small children, or anyone else you don’t wish to have access to your firearms. The more I watch the more I want to protect my daughter but also know that she is her own person.
Herein it is revealed her limerence towards Arnold is the result of transference; where her family relationships were weak, Helga subsequently transferred all feelings of love towards the one person who fulfilled her idea of care, Arnold. It is heavily suggested that Helga's home situation is the root cause of her anti-social behavior.
Olga admitted to Helga in the midst of a severe breakdown that their parents constant adulation and favoritism affect her at least as severely as they do Helga and expresses a desire to be ignored and free the way her sister is.
A touched Olga reassures Helga that she will always be her "baby sis" and that they have a strong bond that only real sisters have that can't be broken. Doug panics and Helga tells him to leave basically saying that she'll tie up the loose ends.
The series was then offered to MTV but they declined it as well, as it was deemed too similar to Daria.
If someone with sticky fingers were to start rummaging through your stuff, who would think to look behind that innocent mirror in the hall, or try to pull out the front of the shelf on your bookcase? They also spend a lot of time exploring their surroundings, and that includes poking around at furniture, under beds, and in closets. The new season of The Secret Life of the American Teenager is coming soon and I can’t wait to watch it. Simmons' constant praise of her literary work, though he always withholds her name possibly out of respect as she gets embarrassed when he reads them aloud. This is revealed by a flashback in which, during Helga's first day of pre-school, her family seems to completely ignore her existence, forcing her to make the trek to school alone in the rain and mud. However, throughout the series the sibling relationship is primarily seen from Helga's point of view. But when she finds out that her dad bribed Arnold, she intentionally forfeits the spelling bee. They show that the baby daddy will likely NOT be involved, that the mom likely won’t graduate from high school, etc. Helga displays a remarkable gift for poetry, and is able to create, often on the spot, dramatic soliloquies expressing a situation or feeling with an impressive use of vocabulary, especially for someone her age. Upon arriving at pre-school, it is Arnold who finally offers her a helping hand, complimenting her pink bow and holding an umbrella over her head; later, he gives her his snack time crackers when Harold eats hers.
Helga then writes a note to Olga and signs it with Doug's name saying that he got cold feet. It was bad enough when it happened with Amy but now the second one is going to get married and have it all work out perfectly. These poems and monologues were simpler in the earlier episodes, but grew in their intensity as the series progressed.
Aside from poetry, Helga exhibits further evidence of cultural experience, being able to identify the work of Edward Hopper and make reference to George Orwell's 1984 in "Helga on the Couch". It is free until the end of January with DISH, so get it today so you can have LIVE TV everywhere.
