Cardi B has an important PSA for any of her fans who might be thinking about getting plastic surgery on their buttocks.

In a exact Instagram Live video, the rapper got candid about her decision to remove the majority of her buttocks injections, and she cautioned her fans that the procedure can be dangerous.

“In August, I got surgery, and I removed 95% of my biopolymers. ... If you don’t know what it is, it’s a-- shots,” the 30-year-old said in the video, as reported by People.

In 2018, the rapper discussed the procedure with GQ and revealed she had silicone illegally injected into her buttocks in a basement apartment in New York City for $800. She also explained that the woman who performed the procedure ended up going to jail when a customer “died on her table.”

In her Instagram Live video, which is no longer viewable, Cardi B told her followers to think twice before considering the procedure.

“All I’m going to say is that if you’re young, if you’re 19, 20, 21, and sometimes you’re too skinny, and you be like, ‘OMG I don’t have enough fat to put in my a--,’ so you result to a-- shots, DON’T!” she said.

The procedure — which "increases the size and shape of your butt," according to the Cleveland Clinic, and is often referred to as a Brazilian butt lift (BBL) — has increased in popularity over the years.

The safest way to perform a BBL is by injecting fat into the buttocks that's from another area of the body, not by injecting silicone or another substance, Dr. Josef Hadeed, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, California, and member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, tells

Cardi B called the removal process that she underwent "really crazy." Explaining what it may have entailed, Hadeed says: "Depending on the severity of it and how much needs to be removed, sometimes it can be removed with ultrasonic liposuction. But in more moderate to severe cases, tissue may actually need to be excised or cut out and removed from the bottom."

The rapper went on to recommend that her fans research everything that goes into a BBL before making any rash decisions.

“When it comes to BBLs, if y’all want advice from me, before you get your BBL done, you have to make sure your blood levels are all right,” she said. “If a doctor says your blood levels are too low or you have diabetes or whatever, don’t do it.” (Hadeed says reputable doctors will always check a patient's blood levels, electrolytes and blood sugars before elective surgery because if their levels are too low, performing the procedure "isn't advisable.")

Cardi B also explained her motivation for sharing her story, saying that “a lot of people thought as soon as I gave birth (to son Wave), I got my body done.”

The 30-year-old and her husband, rapper Offset, welcomed Wave, their second child, in September 2021.

The most important thing to know when considering a BBL is that you should take time to do research and even consult with multiple surgeons, Hadeed says. The goal should be finding someone who's experienced with the procedure, makes you feel comfortable, is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (because of its safety standards) and is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgery, he adds.

These types of surgeons will only perform BBLs with fat transfer, Hadeed says. The risks of undergoing a BBL with silicone or another substance include: "a very intense inflammatory reaction," granulomas (hard knots under the skin), infection, dead skin tissue and death, if the silicone is injected into a blood vessel, he explains.

Because fat is naturally occurring in the body, it comes with fewer risks, Hadeed says. That said, a BBL with fat transfer can still be deadly if the fat gets injected into a blood vessel.

Compared to other plastic surgery procedures, BBL has one of the “highest fatality rates,” Hadeed says. But, he clarifies, "that statistic might be skewed because a lot of the deaths that have occurred with BBLs have occurred with patients going to what are called ... plastic surgery factories, where oftentimes they’re more concerned about quantity versus quality of work. A lot of times these places employ physicians that are not trained specifically in plastic surgery."

In addition to doing research, you should also never make choices about plastic surgery based on what will cost the least, he says.

"That old adage, 'You get what you pay for,' (is) right. A lot of times, when patients try to go bargain hunting for plastic surgery, that’s when a lot of issues can come up," Hadeed stresses. "Choosing to have elective surgery is a very serious decision that nobody has to make and price should not be the main, determining factor because it’s essentially your health and your livelihood at stake."

Faisa Farole runs her midwifery business out of a small office in Burien.

She got her start in the childbirth industry working to help Somali refugee families navigate the healthcare system in the United States.

She quickly noticed a startling statistic.

“Women were having higher cesarean rates in the Somali community,” Farole said.

After becoming a certified midwife, she decided to primarily serve Black families and she found the rates of cesarean sections were just the tip of the iceberg.

“There’s been so many mild mistreatments towards Black women, and of course, with the studies that have come out the past few years showing just how dire that was and that this is not just something Black women were thinking, it wasn’t just in their minds, it’s actuality,” Farole told KING 5.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, Black women are nearly three times more likely to die from childbirth than white women.

The issue became top of mind in Washington D.C. as this year the White House declared April 11 - 17 Black Maternal Health Week to call attention to the disparities.

“We're watching, witnessing how much representation matters,” said Jemma Nonog, President of the American College of Nurse Midwives, Washington State.

Nonog focuses on diversity and equity in the medical field.

“Black birthing people, Black women are experiencing less agency, less autonomy, less consent, true informed consent, of their full options of care when they enter into the medical system,” Nonog said.

Others working in the Black birthing field also see this trend.

“I just witnessed families over and over again being really railroaded in the medical system and not getting all the options offered to them,” said Rokea Jones.

Jones is a doula and the Director of Community Based Research for the Tubman Center For Health and Freedom, a new health-focused community organization working to offer care to marginalized communities.

“The midwifery care model is really in its nature a community-based model,” Jones said.

Nonog and Jones said the issue stems from a lack of diversity in the medical field.

Data from the Association of American Medical Colleges states in 2018 only 5% of physicians in the U.S. identified as Black or African American.

“Research is showing that outcomes are improved for BIPOC people when they have midwifery care,” Nonog said.

But a lack of diversity is also a problem in midwifery.

In 2020 6.85% of midwives in the U.S. identified as Black or African American while 85.5% were white, for other BIPOC groups the rates are even lower, according to the American Midwifery Certification Board.

“There are just some things culturally about the ways that we express ourselves, the foods we like to eat, or things we understand culturally that we use for our healing and our wellness," Jones said. "It's beyond beneficial to have a provider who can show up in that space and to be able to help us along in that personal journey."

Farole is fundraising to create a safe place for pregnant people in BIPOC communities.

She is working to open the first Black, woman-owned birth center in the state of Washington.

This, Farole told KING 5, will provide BIPOC families more out-of-hospital options to provide birth in the space, supported by, run by, and organized by people from their own communities.

“I think a birth center would be an amazing addition for the communities that I serve to have and not just the families, but also for aspiring Black midwives to come and learn from,” Farole said.

It’s a step in the direction of health equity, Nonog and Jones believe.

“It’s about dang time, right?" Nonog said. "That we support, wrap around her as much as we can to make sure this happens because this is what we have been looking for."

“It's going to take more, right?" Jones said. "We need to really rally behind Faisa. Faisa’s birth center will be one step as we're moving forward towards health justice, and really taking care of people."

“It’s about making sure that a group of people that are hurt are getting healed, you know what I mean?" Farole said. "So, that’s what this is for me, it’s about equity."

One of the big models for Farole’s birth center is training more BIPOC midwives to further diversify the field.

Farole has a webpage set up to help fundraise and share information about her goals and ideas for the birth center.

Killexams : Thinking Outside the Office Box: Nuveen’s Innovative Sector Investing Leads to Success

Pictured: Bill Abramowitz, Portfolio Manager & Chad Phillips, Global Head of Workplace, Retail & Mixed-Use

While the majority of corporate America struggles to entice workers back to the workplace, Nuveen Real Estate sees an incredible opportunity in the alternative workplace sector, which includes medical office, life science, technology R&D, studio production space, and mixed-use.  

As early adopters—Nuveen Real Estate first invested in life sciences in 2015 and was one of the largest buyers of medical offices in 2021—the firm has built a strong portfolio in the space and believes it will be a high-performing sector in the near future and beyond. “We had this thesis in place even pre-pandemic and have broadly pivoted into these subcategories from more traditional office allocations,” says Bill Abramowitz, portfolio manager for Nuveen Real Estate’s Workplace sector.

“We think, given the demand drivers in these subsectors, it’s the right mix of assets for the long term. They have complementary attributes and should also be more resilient, with expanding potential going forward, than the more traditional commodity office asset class.”

Demographic trends provide tailwinds to alternative office subsector

Three key themes support this play, says Chad Phillips, Nuveen Real Estate’s Global Head of Workplace, Retail & Mixed-Use, as he described common elements across these subcategories. First, they all have attractive long-term demand characteristics based on the macroeconomic drivers of healthcare, innovation and technology, which comprise a significant slice of Gross Domestic Product (GDP). As an example, healthcare alone accounts for nearly 20% of GDP, with no slowdown in sight, and receives significant public and private sector investment. Studio production is another thriving subsector as demand for streaming content continues to increase.

Another shared attribute, despite the fact these subsectors perform widely different roles, is a mission-critical nature that requires a physical presence.

“As such, they’re incredibly resilient to work-from-home trends, which wasn’t even on our radar when we first pursued this focus,” says Abramowitz. “As the pandemic unfolded, we considered how our strategy would perform in the world and realized that these resilient subsectors were even more attractive. Over the past few years, these workplaces have had usage levels far beyond what the traditional office market has seen.”

Portfolio Asset – 5500 Jefferson, Los Angeles, CA

Finally, the third commonality is they typically entail deep investments from the tenant in order to perform this specialized work. That makes it more challenging to move to another space, leading to high renewal rates. As one example, Nuveen bought an asset in Culver City, California, one of the top five technology and creative markets in the country, where approximately three-quarters of the space has been built out into R&D exploration rooms, with the remainder as supporting modern offices. “It’s an example of an asset that underpins our strategy as a workplace environment that’s not an office building,” Abramowitz explains. In another example, he mentions a life science facility whose physical premises is certified by the FDA and other organizations. These certifications add additional security and longevity to in-place tenants.
“We believe our alternative strategy is the future of where general office investing is headed, and we have been actively repositioning our portfolio toward that,” Abramowitz says. “Overall demand generators and dynamics behind these industries are very strong as we look into 2023 and beyond.”

Portfolio Asset – 5500 Jefferson, Los Angeles, CA

Phillips adds that while part of Nuveen’s portfolio still consists of traditional office space, they are future-proofing those buildings to create inviting places that attract tenants through retrofitting and other advances. “There are going to be winners and losers in the alternative office sector, and we believe we’ll be on the winning side of that equation,” Phillips says.

Nuveen’s competitive advantages lead to success

One of the factors that makes Nuveen stand out is its fully integrated platform, combined with a deep bench of talent situated in the right markets. For example, the studio production assets are primarily located in Los Angeles, where Nuveen has extensive relationships and a comprehensive understanding of the market dynamics and players, which allows them to nimbly implement their strategy.

“With our sector specialist model, we have people waking up every day thinking about the same thing and executing similar deals, in contrast to our peers with a generalist model where they might be simultaneously thinking about a retail deal in New York City and a multifamily project in Boston,” Abramowitz says. “With that focused expertise, you excel at what you’re doing so you can outperform on behalf of your clients.”

Read the report here

Even though Nuveen Real Estate is a relatively large firm, Phillips appreciates that team members are still encouraged to be entrepreneurial, a commitment that starts at the top. “When we first proposed balancing traditional with alternative office, retail and mixed- use, it was a strategy that was certainly outside of the box, yet they embraced it and advocated for the pursuit of this new direction,” Phillips says.

On that note, the firm is also progressive as it relates to environmental, social and governance (ESG) initiatives. For example, the firm recently invested in an office building outside of Dallas that’s 100% electric, powered largely by wind energy.

“While ESG used to be a less critical factor, now employees and tenants want to partner with someone who shares their priorities, and they are increasingly interested in your credentials,” Phillips says. We benchmark against peer buildings and always aim to be better than our competition.”

In addition, Phillips points to the substantial capital infusions Nuveen Real Estate makes into its existing portfolio. The firm is proud of extensive improvements, that include adding smart technology, renovating lobbies, upgrading air filtration and more. “We’ve been a very active landlord with the intent to prioritize renovations and improvements across all our portfolios.”

A bright future with expanding opportunities 

Abramowitz sees rising inflation and interest rates fueling broad repricing across all asset types, including those that have recently been the strongest sectors, such as multifamily and industrial. “While we won’t be immune, the fundamentals underlying the industries at the core of our strategy have very strong demand drivers and tailwinds behind them. We see them as a great play for a long-term investment, with considerable capital still flowing into these sectors.”

“We have dry powder and are ready take to advantage of the repricing that’s currently occurring, which we believe will lead to a strong vintage for investments made in 2023,” adds Phillips. “At the end of the day, as a real estate investor, you’re always looking for opportunities. We want to make sure we have our compass pointed in the right direction where we know there will be long-term demand and growth. Combine that with our excellent execution capabilities and Nuveen Real Estate offers a compelling overall package.”

Killexams : Thinking of a career change? Finger Lakes Community College offers courses for in-demand jobs

Training for occupations in growing sectors throughout the Finger Lakes are available for the public to take through Finger Lakes Community College. The college recently expanded to hosting classes at the Waterloo Community Center. Now, there are a total of seven sites in the region where the institution offers courses.

And the courses were engineered to be practical, said Todd Sloane, who oversees the workforce program. Workforce programs are focused on in-demand occupations in high-growth sectors.

Todd Sloane with FLCC explains what courses are available and why

“Being a community college we really focus on jobs that require some education after high school, but not necessarily a four-year degree or a graduate degree,” Sloane said. “And there’s a lot of those. Most in-demand occupations require less than two years of education after high school. It’s definitely a good time to just look at what all of your options are and make a thoughtful decision.”

Sloane said he wishes he took some of these opportunities himself.

“I had school debt when I graduated with my four-year degree,” he added. “And now, getting training like this, going in to an occupation and advancing with my employer through tuition assistance, I could probably have the same degree and have it been paid for in full.”

In our region, Sloane said, advanced manufacturing jobs are plentiful. Not your traditional mass production-type manufacturing, but high-tech jobs that produce products and goods.

“Healthcare and skill trades, these are also now high-tech jobs when you’re talking about solar and alternate forms of energy in high-efficiency homes,” Sloane explained. “And then IT. Those are the four big sectors. Roughly, 75% of the in-demand jobs in those sectors are what we call technical jobs.”

Sloane said SUNY has grant funding available for these courses, which he said range from $1,000-$5,000. Those interested can apply online.

The college released its upcoming classes here:

  • “Foundations in Advanced Manufacturing, which covers core knowledge for those entering advanced manufacturing and uses virtual reality headsets for skills training. Successful graduates receive the nationally recognized Certified Production Technician credentials in safety and quality. The class runs Jan. 13 to April 20, Monday and Thursday, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.
  • The Certified Patient Care Technician course prepares students for the Level I certification exam. Successful graduates will qualify to support nurses, doctors, and other medical staff with less than a year of training. It runs Jan. 17 to April 26, Monday and Wednesday from 12:30 – 3:30 p.m. or Tuesday and Thursday from 12:30 – 3:30 p.m.
  • The Residential Electrician course teaches electrical theory, wiring and installation techniques, and safety procedures. It prepares students to start a career as an entry-level residential electrician or electrician apprentice. The course runs Jan. 17 to April 26 on Tuesday and Wednesday from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.”

Classes are offered at the Bloomfield Central School District, Clifton Springs Library, FLCC Geneva Campus Center, Macedon Public Library, FLCC Newark Campus Center, Waterloo Community Center, and Yates County Workforce Development Office.
