Ted L. Nancy Public Record Quite Revealing

Shines A Light On The Truth!

Glendale, CA, Oct 18, 2012 - Ted L. Nancy (Barry Marder) is thrilled to see a Blog called: TED L. NANCY PUBLIC RECORD.

The Blog is postings of legal documents available to all in searches from various government agencies.

When Jerry Seinfeld took Barry Marder onto the “Larry King Live” show and “The Today Show” with Matt Lauer it was to reveal the true author of the “Letters From A Nut” books and the true creator of the character: Ted L. Nancy.

Seinfeld told the TV hosts and the audience that there were many people claiming to be the author of the books other than Marder.He said that was simply not true.

In TED L. NANCY PUBLIC RECORD there are documents that show that one such individual, Jeff Crupper from Florida, actually opened a Ted L. Nancy store on the Internet selling Nancy merchandise that was not authorized. Mr. Crupper was sued by Marder and Marder was awarded a $47,000 Judgment.



In another legal action, Marder filed a JOHN DOE regarding search results for his books on The complaint in this action tells the interesting story of the Ted L. Nancy trademark and some of the litigation that has been generated around Marder’s affable Nancy character.

The complaint certainly puts a different spin on the mountains of Internet refuse that surrounds Mr. Nancy.

Eating Recovery Center: Eliminate Critical Body-Focused Comments During “Fat Talk” Free Week 2012

Leading eating disorders treatment center urges adults and children alike to acknowledge the impact of negative body shape- and weight-centric comments and promote healthy self-esteem

Denver, CO, October 18, 2012 - A study released in early October in the International Journal of Eating Disorders found that genetics could cause some women, more than others, to feel pressures to be thin and fall victim to body dissatisfaction. During “Fat Talk” Free Week (October 22-28, 2012) and beyond, Eating Recovery Center, an international center providing comprehensive treatment for eating disorders, urges women and men alike to take a conscious break from weight-focused criticism of themselves and others, to minimize the potentially negative impact these comments could have on body image, self-esteem and the development of eating disorders.

While the fact that genes can influence body type is widely understood, Eating Recovery Center cites this recent study as further evidence demonstrating that genetics can additionally influence the degree to which individuals identify with a thin ideal. Even innocently intended phrases such as “I‘m having a ‘fat’ day,” or “You look great, have you lost weight?” can be internalized by people who are more genetically sensitive to comments and perceived judgments about body shape and size. “Fat talk” can be particularly impactful for children and teenagers, a population whose fragile self-images contend with powerful social pressures to be thin, including media messages and bullying.

“Every day, we are on the receiving end of a barrage of messages that encourage us to be thin – television commercials glamorizing disordered eating thoughts, social media posts describing new weight loss tools, comments from gossip magazines about celebrity weight gain, and even simple, self-deprecating comments from our friends and families,” explains Julie Holland, MHS, CEDS, chief marketing officer of Eating Recovery Center. “Under this steady pressure, it is not uncommon to internalize a thin ideology, engrain it in our thought processes and behaviors around food and body image and even impress these same ideals on our loved ones.”

To help men, women and children fight “fat talk” and promote positive body image and self-esteem in themselves and others, Eating Recovery Center offers these five recommendations:

1. Focus on what your body can do for you, rather than what it looks like. Take stock of the day-to-day activities your body helps you enjoy, regardless of what it looks like.

2. Do away with self-destructive behaviors. Overly critical comments about weight or size can wreak havoc on your body image and the body image of others.

3. Be aware of the comments you make about others. The next time you remark on a celebrity’s weight gain, remember that others can perceive this as a judgment about weight gain in general and they may even relate your comment to themselves.

4. Compliment yourself. Instilling a positive body image starts with the messages you develop about yourself. Make a practice out of complimenting yourself several times a day.

5. Be a critical consumer of media. Remind yourself and others that the images portrayed in the media are often unrealistic, and that body shapes and sizes are often digitally altered and impossible to achieve.

“While ‘fat talk’ rarely causes eating disorders, curbing this negative dialogue can be a powerful anecdote against the uncontrollable and external risk factors associated with eating disorders,” explains Holland. “If a loved one’s ‘fat talk’ accompanies significant weight loss, over-exercising or other concerning disordered eating behaviors, it is important to intervene early and seek an assessment from a qualified eating disorders professional.”
