Nooooo Not Nip!!!!!! Noooooooooo!!!! NIPSEY HUSSLE DEAD AT 33

What have we come to when someone seeks out and murder a man who was such a positive force in his community?  I don’t know the details behind this murder, but I equate it with the likes of murdering Malcolm X and Tupac. Both men from the streets, not perfect…….had a past……..but who they were to their people: Unapologetically black, influential, Leaders who used their powerful platforms to uplift and aggressively promote positive change the culture. ………#HUSTLEANDMOTIVATE.

I’m tired of saying RIP to our leaders, our beloved entertainers, and our people. I’m tired…….this has to stop!! How does it stop!……………..We have to stop becoming immune to murder – just because it happens often, does not mean it is normal or rational behavior. In fact its insanity!! We have to start pushing love and hope like Nino Brown pushed dope!! We have to…… hearts kill with no remorse………Haters we call them…….People who hate themselves…….We have to break the curse of self-hate, period……. ‘The Willie Lynch  Syndrome’ is alive and well anywhere you have active gang culture among people of color……….we have created our own holocaust…..and the blood is on all our hands.

My condolences to the families who lost a loved one in the shooting. My condolences to the culture, because we lost a “real one” in Nipsty Hussle.

Fifteen benefits of drinking water

By James McIntosh

Reblogged from :

Keeping hydrated is crucial for health and well-being, but many people do not consume enough fluids each day.

Around 60 percent of the body is made up of water, and around 71 percent of the planet’s surface is covered by water.

Perhaps it is the ubiquitous nature of water that means drinking enough each day is not at the top of many people’s lists of priorities.Fast facts on drinking water

  • Adult humans are 60 percent water, and our blood is 90 percent water.
  • There is no universally agreed quantity of water that must be consumed daily.
  • Water is essential for the kidneys and other bodily functions.
  • When dehydrated, the skin can become more vulnerable to skin disorders and wrinkling.
  • Drinking water instead of soda can help with weight loss.

Fifteen benefits of drinking water

Benefits of drinking water

Possible benefits of drinking water range from keeping the kidneys healthy to losing weight.

To function properly, all the cells and organs of the body need water.

Here are some reasons our body needs water:

1. It lubricates the joints

Cartilage, found in joints and the disks of the spine, contains around 80 percent water. Long-term dehydration can reduce the joints’ shock-absorbing ability, leading to joint pain.

2. It forms saliva and mucus

Saliva helps us digest our food and keeps the mouth, nose, and eyes moist. This prevents friction and damage. Drinking water also keeps the mouth clean. Consumed instead of sweetened beverages, it can also reduce tooth decay.

3. It delivers oxygen throughout the body

Blood is more than 90 percent water, and blood carries oxygen to different parts of the body.

4. It boosts skin health and beauty

With dehydration, the skin can become more vulnerable to skin disorders and premature wrinkling.

5. It cushions the brain, spinal cord, and other sensitive tissues

The Plan Worked!!! Charges dropped against Jussie Smollett in Chi-Town attack case!

According to the Chicago Tribune charges against Jussie Smollett the ‘Empire Star’ who faked a hate-crime attack on himself have been dropped.

Jussie still maintains that he is telling the truth.

Pardon my French, but YOOOOO Oh Boy is about the Blow UP!!! His plan worked!! It is alleged that he did this for more money and more fame. I say check mate! Jussie may be let go from Empire, but trust me this brother is about the get paid.

I for one am glad the charges were dropped. I mean… come on we talking Chi – town, how are you going to give someone that much time for a crime that really wasn’t committed when you have real murderers on the street.  The only person Jussie hurt was himself. Yes, I understand the real crime was trying to trick the justice system………but let’s be real, who isn’t?  I know, I know, I’m making light of it, but the truth is the only person this man hurt was himself and his reputation……………but only for the moment. 

At the end of the day……….this is a win – win situation for Jussie, he will get the help that he needs and he got the extra fame he was looking for. He will be either on Gail Kings or Oprah’s Couch. And he will be for sure on Ayana Vansant’s ‘Fix My Life’. Oooooohhhhh and she gone gettem………listen Jussie will give her the biggest ratings she has ever had.

After the drama, we will forget why he is so dang famous!! Jussie is handsome and gay in hollywood, please… he was never going to jail. The Gay community is strong and powerful……they were not playing them games.

The One Meal A Day Diet: What 14 Studies Say About Eating Once A Day

Reposted from Muscle EVO

The benefits of eating one time a day.

You’ve read a few posts and articles from people on the One Meal a Day diet (OMAD) who say they’ve lost weight by eating once a day.

It all sounds very simple and easy, and you’re thinking about giving it a try.

Does eating once a day get results? Can you really pig out every night and still lose weight? Or is the OMAD diet just going to mess up your metabolism and wreak havoc with your hormones?

What Is the OMAD diet?

The idea behind the OMAD diet is very simple. You eat one big meal whenever you want, although most people prefer to do so at night. That meal is where you get most of your calories for the day.

Because all your food for the day is squeezed into one meal, you don’t have to exercise much restraint. On the OMAD diet you get to eat, within reason, whatever you like. As a result, you finish that meal feeling full and satisfied.

During the rest of the day, your calorie intake is minimal. You’re allowed some light snacks, maybe a protein shake after you’ve been to the gym. But that’s about it.

OMAD Origins: The Warrior Diet

The first time I came across the idea of eating once a day was in the late 1990’s, in a book called The Warrior Diet.

Written by former Penthouse health and fitness editor Ori Hofmekler, The Warrior Diet describes the many great and wonderful things that will happen when you switch to eating once a day.

Nutrition & Our Hybrid Body
In the 1950’s, my friend Bill was a very gifted Engineer who made an extraordinary car. It looked very similar to a Chevrolet Corvette, but the insides of the car is what made it so unique. It wasn’t the first Hybrid car, but it was much more practical and appealing than its predecessors. There was one snag: it never took off because he couldn’t get people to use it properly. The car’s main fuel source was electricity, and gasoline was to be put in whenever available. It was fine for the car to use gasoline every other day or so, but the problem was that people ran it on gasoline nearly 90% of the time. This resulted in…

Okay, I know I’m late with this… But the cover the February issue of Essence Magazine was Super-Hot.  I mean three generations of intelligence, fierceness, and melanated beauty!! The ladies of ‘RED TABLE TALK’ killed it!!!

I don’t know about you, but I love, love, love, Red Table Talk. And what a comeback for Jada Pinkett – Smith. I mean seriously, she is the new age Oprah Winfrey. I think when the Oprah Show went off  the air, Jada was like, It’s time I stepped in.   And what a great job she is doing, her subject matters are ones that we all can relate to. And it is genius to only have it on FB. It  really makes it very personal. Let’s face it, the Smiths are winning……… such a strong, classy and positive way!

Let’s talk Willow Smith, I’m sure I’m not the only one who was a bit worried about her in her younger years. But OMG she has grown into such a loving, super smart, beautiful, young woman.  I mean she is the daughter of Will and Jada Smith, yet she possess this kindness and humility that comes across very genuine….she is like a little twinkle of light………..and she is absolutely gorgeous!!!! She has really found her look with her natural hair……….and sweet heart if you are reading this, please don’t cut it off again;-).Willow is truly super model material. We met her once as a child with her number one hit ‘Whip my hair’ and now we are introduced to her again as a woman, and she is such a breath of fresh air. I know that this woman we see on ‘The Red Table’ will be able to continue the legacy that the Smith family has created and continue create in Entertainment.

Wait a minute –  what about the Grandma, huh!!! Yasss, Adrienne is giving me hope, life and AARP goals…Yasss, 65 is the new 45….at 65 she is in better shape than some 21 year olds I know. On the ‘Red Table Talk’ I love her candidness and transparency.  I love that she has shared her pain and her evolution. Human beings need that. We need to know that we are not alone in our struggles.…….That we are not the first and we won’t be the last, and if our sista can get through it and prosper then so can we.

I want to say thank you to all of the ladies of the Red Table Talk for bringing real, hard, conversations to all of us, right at our fingertips on our smart phones. It’s hard out here, and in the grand scheme of things… It’s true, that we really need each other. And the “Red Table Talk” is doing just that…….. It is what makes the Red Table Talk episodes empowering and healing.

 If you have not already done so be sure to purchase the February issue of Essence Magazine and be sure check out all of the episodes of Red Table Talk on FB – You have my word, you will not be disappointed.

 Peace beloveds,
