Human hair is popular for it’s strength and texture and is used for hair extensions and wigs. Brazilian, Peruvian, Malaysian and Indian hair rank high on the list as the go to hair for extensions and wigs.
In Brazil, this has lead to the frequent kidnapping of women to steal hair off their heads, which is then shipped to manufacturers for production destined for foreign countries like the USA and beyond. Those who resist are manhandled and sometimes killed for their own hair.

Next time you buy weave remember, someone probably died defending her crown

Larry Sanders – Blasts Bill Clinton

Bernie’s Angry Brother

Bernie Sanders’s Brother: He Backs ‘Class Warfare,’ Bill Clinton Was Worse Than Bush

Larry Sanders says Bernie is a ‘genuine socialist’ trying to save the Democratic Party from ‘dreadful’ Bill Clinton, who is either a ‘terrible rapist or a nice rapist’ to the media.

Bernie Sanders and his brother Larry



Bernie’s brother burned Bill Clinton in a frank interview Friday
The former president was a ‘dreadful’ one, and his wife Hillary has ‘feeble policies,’ Larry Sanders said
Sanders, 80, spoke of his little brother’s political views and chances to win
Bernie is a ‘genuine socialist in his sense of class warfare,’ Larry said


Democratic U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton laughs as she celebrates with her husband, former President Bill Clinton at her caucus night rally in Des Moines, Iowa February 1, 2016.








OXFORD, England — The problem with the Clintons, according to Bernie Sanders’s big brother, is that people don’t realize what an awful president Bill was. For the most part, Larry Sanders says, that’s because people are too busy debating “Is Bill really such a terrible rapist—or is he a nice rapist?”

These are shockingly blunt words from a soft-spoken man, who has been calmly explaining his little brother’s sudden political success from his sun-drenched kitchen table in Oxford.

Larry Sanders said he thinks Hillary Clinton’s brand of moderate politics is “feeble” but there is no sign of any real hostility towards her—that is reserved for her husband, although Sanders, who has dedicated his life to working with the disadvantaged and disabled, insists that it was the former president who started it.

South Carolina’s Jim Clyburn Plans To Endorse Hillary Clinton

South Carolina’s Jim Clyburn Plans To Endorse Hillary Clinton

 … what happened to Mr James Clyburn I am going to stay neutral until the South Carolina primary is over. 

“… I am not going to influence my constituents one way or the other”.

Rep James Clyburn (D-SC)
: Congressional power broker. Announced intention to declare support for Hilary Clinton on eve of South Carolina primaries

The only problem Mr Clyburn is that your endorsement which s conveniently timed for just before the South Carolina primaries, looks rather orchestrated and designed to tip the primaries in a particular direction.  I guess that is the purpose of endorsements so I am not complaining about that. On the contrary, I am quite happy for Madam Secretary because her campaign’s rudder has been malfunctioning functioning and it is losing steam real fast . This might be the shot in the arm it needs to get close to the finish line.

“That was certainly my intention,” Clyburn recently told the Washington Post of his intention to remain neutral. “But I am re-evaluating that. I really am having serious conversations with my family members.”

The question sir, is why all that posturing about not wanting to influence the out come of the election only to trade your integrity and go back on your word.  Long term prognosis, it could cost you the ears of your constituents, especially the new, read young, voters. The question is, what happens when your voice is really needed. No sir, do not put this on your family. It is all on you.

Secretary Clinton at a recent campaign rally
The lofty expectations here comes from the general impression that you, Rep Clyburn, are one of the rare breed of politicians who have mastered the art of balancing pragmatic self interest with principles. Enough that when you declare publicly that you could be trusted to remain neutral and calm in a heated polity, that you can be counted upon to see the potential of a major upheaval in the democratic ranks if the establishment willy nilly manipulates the outcome of the primaries. FYI, if you (Democratic Establishment), in the process happen to lose a major component of the coalition that brought Obama to power, the blood bath of 2012 may turn out to be child’s play.

This drive towards the self-destruct button in the DNC is becoming quite interesting. The RNC might end up handling their chaos better because, they can at least, see it coming. Hopefully, the young voters of which there are many, follow you and the Democratic establishment to the ‘promised’ land.

Mitzvah for the day – Efena Otobo – Help Efena Walk Again!

Efena Otobo’s story.   Her journey to recovery from a Spinal Cord Injury

I saw this story o the net and my heart went out to the lady affected and thought she will greatly benefit from a good deed being done for her.

… her story goes as follows



Photo: Efena  – Killing it – intense therapy style! Using the exoskeleton and the standing frame.

On the 21st day of April 2014, one single catastrophic event completely altered my universe. In one moment, my whole life drastically changed. A reckless driver caused a horrible car accident that had severe consequences. After numerous tests and scans, the diagnosis given was a complete T4 spinal cord injury which in ‘regular person speak’ meant I could not feel anything from the waist down. We were told that there was very little chance of ever walking again and that the road to recovery would be long, hard and punishing. My family, friends and I were beyond devastated at this news.

Efena in therapy

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js
(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); My life came to a screeching halt and I was torn from everything I knew. I was an Asset Manager at the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON) with a background in Economics and Politics (BSc.) from the University of Bristol, England and a concentration in Development Studies (MSc.) from the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. I loved traveling, writing, poetry, art, architecture, the world of movies and TV shows, running, yoga and Pilates. Now with this prognosis, being labelled a paraplegic meant I was confined, restricted and immobilized.

Suddenly, I was a baby once again. I had to re-learn how to sit up and balance at the edge of the bed, be taught how to dress myself and I had to learn how to roll over. It seemed like a never-ending nightmare I could not escape from.

Physiotherapy became a constant and I spent hours in hospital gyms and rehab facilities trying to build up my upper body strength, learning how to execute perfect transfers from the wheelchair to any surface and preventing my leg muscles from dying. Without the tireless guidance from the physical therapists and the aid of the different breakthrough assistive devices and technology such as standing frames, exoskeleton machines that enable me to walk etc., I would not be where I am today.

To get the best chance of total recovery from my current state of paralysis, I desperately need a specific equipment that I can use at home. Continuous use of rehab programs at Wellington Hospital, London, Project Walk San Diego and Beyond Therapy, Shepherd Center in Atlanta, Georgia has been essential but the bills have and are piling up.

Pope Francis Condemns Donald Trump’s plan to build a wall between the US and Mexico …: "This is not in the Gospel.’"

Pope Condemned Trump’s plan to build a wall between the United States and Mexico saying: ‘This is not in the Gospel.’ Pope Francis went on to say, he did not want to advise American Catholics on whether or not to vote for Trump … Trump in turn calls Pope Catholic Pontiff ‘disgraceful’ and a ‘pawn’ of the Mexican government

…. seriously Herr Trump?  Is your paint brush big enough?

For much of his five-day trip in Mexico, Pope Francis played the role of friendly pastor, smiling for selfies, kissing babies and encouraging the youth not to fall prey to the drug trade.
On Wednesday, Francis showed another aspect of his complex public persona: The disappointed prophet who excoriates world powers for mistreating the poor and marginalized.

The Vatican spokesman Rev Federico Lombardi when asked about Trump’s accusations responded  “The Pope, with his moral and spiritual ministry, may have a political impact. That is clear to the whole world by now, “  and that he was not pawn of the Mexican government.

Plane crazy – Marilyn The serial stowaway

Serial stowaway Marilyn Hartman, 64, arrested for the EIGHTH time trying to stow aboard a plane at Chicago O’hare airport
Hartman has blamed her penchant for sneaking onto planes on an unrecognized medical condition she calls “whistle blower trauma syndrome”. She claimed she was forced by the FBI to flee her home and live on the streets.

Previously, Marilyn  Hartman had been arrested five different times in April and May 2015 for trying to get past airport security at the same Chicago airports. She has also been arrested multiple times in different airports around the nation including Phoenix Airport and Los Angeles airport. She is now facing charges of felony probation violation and misdemeanor criminal trespass.

In July 2015, Hartman said she was done with stowing away. A day later, she was arrested at Midway Airport. Hartman has blamed her penchant for sneaking onto planes on an unrecognized medical condition she calls ‘whistle blower trauma syndrome’. She claimed she was forced by the FBI to flee her home and live on the streets.

The court deems Hartman, who has often said she is homeless and feels more comfortable in airports than streets, mentally unstable.

Nude Yoga, The Human Body in All it’s Beauty

  Wow!  Amazing 

 
Peace: She wants people to feel beautiful in their bodies and admits she wasn't always confident in hersCredit Nude Yoga Girl

“The human body is beautiful and the poses and shapes can be seen very well without any clothing on. I wanted to take off everything unnecessary from the pictures on my account. Nudity in social media is a taboo but on the other hand the nakedness and rawness of my photos reflect well what I want to tell people with my account. “

 

No beef: The model says she actually doesn't have a problem with Instagram's guidelines but does want her picture to be real and authentic  Credit Nude Yoga Girl
The 25-year-old is a model and photographer who has been doing yoga for years and decided to marry her three passions in her Instagram account

For yoga novices, it takes courage enough just to show up to a class, what with seasoned head-standers ohm-ing a mat over. But a new naked yoga Instagram account could be just the thing a burgeoning yogi needs.Nude Yoga Girl shows that getting into a naked downward dog can be a spiritual practice all its own; her account serves as a handy instructional guide for newbies. The 25-year-old model-photographer has racked up 245,000 Instagram followers by sharing graceful black and white portraits of herself in yoga poses

Nude Yoga Girl shows that getting into a naked downward dog can be a spiritual practice all its own; her account serves as a handy instructional guide for newbies. The 25-year-old model-photographer has racked up 245,000 Instagram followers by sharing graceful black and white portraits of herself in yoga poses without clothes.

While “model” and “naked” might not sound like a recipe for empowering yoga beginners, the feed is all about showcasing the human body in a new way, while offering a clear guide to proper form: Yes, many of the yogi’s poses are advanced and super twisty, but many of her photos work as guides to beginners who want to grasp the right alignment. And indeed, the lack of clothing makes it much easier to see the clear lines of each pose.
“I want to show that nudity can be something else than only sexual,” the model behind Nude Yoga Girl, who prefers to remain anonymous, told The Huffington Post in an email. She continued:

The artist said she’s been practicing yoga for most of her life, ramping up to a daily practice about a year ago.

She mostly practices by herself at home, she said, and will sometimes use online classes to move her yoga forward. With nearly 100 posts, she has the process for practicing and capturing her poses down to a science. It looks a little something like this:

“I set up the lighting and the camera settings ready. After that I do a short yoga practice to warm up before starting the photoshoot. Sometimes I plan the poses in advance by browsing the internet or books for some inspiration and sometimes I get creative in front of the camera! My boyfriend is kind enough to press the camera button and take the photo of me. I’m very grateful for his help.”

Inner calm: She said yoga has taught her to focus more on how she feels than how she looks

 Chrissy Teigen, Miley Cyrus, and Kendall Jenner have all seen photos of themselves taken down by Instagram, which bans buttocks and female nipples on its app.

But Nude Yoga Girl has found ways around those rules – for the most part. Making use of perfectly-angled poses and expert lighting that casts shadows in all the right places, she’s successfully shared 50 snaps of herself doing yoga in the buff.
She has had a few mishaps, she admits. So far, Instagram has removed three of the pictures she’s uploaded for showing nipple. But despite the hassle, she actually doesn’t have a problem with the restrictions. 

 A few problems: Only three of her photos have been taken down so far by Instagram, which bans female nipples and buttocks
