Alright people it’s time! @enditmovement FEBRUARY 22ND IS SHINE A LIGHT ON SLAVERY DAY. Will you join the fight for FREEDOM? Draw a ❌ on your hand, share on social media, and create change by bringing awareness to human trafficking! Educate people on the issue... Becoming aware of the issue is the first step. What you or others choose to do next, is up to you. How will you continue the fight in ending modern day slavery?
Human Trafficking... It’s the illegal trade of human beings. It’s the recruitment, control, and use of people for their bodies and for their labor. Through force, fraud, and coercion, people everywhere are being bought and sold against their will–right now in the 21st century.
But phrases like ‘slavery’ and ‘human trafficking’ can still feel ambiguous. This is the reality: slavery is violence. It’s physical, verbal, and sexual abuse. It’s forced prostitution. It’s barbaric working conditions. An estimated 40.3 million people are in modern slavery and is the fastest-growing criminal industry in the world generating more than $150 billion EVERY YEAR... “Modern-day slavery is as brutal as ever; more vast than ever, but more stoppable than ever.” -Gary Haugen

How often do you feel that there's a lack of a corset effect in your abdominal area no matter how many times a week you incorporate core workouts? There could be lack of understanding in terms of muscle recruitment.... every movement which we do has a specific requirement of different muscles to be recruited (all at once) to complete the motion... and if even one muscle fails to recruit in synchrony the outcome of that movement is next to Zero! Hence a inefficient movement --> poor results!
Here I'm dealing with the obliques (part of the global core musculature) which help in creating that corset feeling along with the TA and these muscles are highly developed in people playing racquet sports or boxers!
Obliques are in two layers (ExternAl and internal) externals originate from the lower ribs while internals originate from the pelvic crest but both insert into the linea alba through the abdominal fascia. Both the muscles help in rotating the trunk but work in cross manner ... so if you need to turn towards right ... you will need to recruit your left external and right internals!
So....Externals rotate trunk to the OPPOSITE side while the Internals rotate trunk toward the SAME side!
Understanding muscle actions makes a major difference when training them and gives one a more cleaner and a crispier movement!
So when twisting that torso always remember to recruit both the layers of obliques for a more optimum stable and efficient movement! #hijabifitnessgoals#tasneemsbarrephysiofusion#barre#barrelove#barreburn#obliques#workoutvariations#basicanatomy#anatomy#hijabifitnessgoals#physiofit#physioeducation#educateyourself#keepitsimple#loveyourbody

Have you fallen victim to any of these tricky marketing claims? I know I have. .
A few years ago I quite regularly bought a very “clean” looking brand, the front of the bottle made it sound safe, but it actually had fragrance in it, a tiny little term that can have a big impact on our health. Many of us want to make safer choices, but when we start shopping it can be overwhelming trying to look beyond these #greenwashing claims, and really see the product for what it is…(or isn’t).
When it comes to personal care & cosmetics, labels like “Natural” and “Organic” “Hypoallergenic”, etc,.. have NO legal definition or regulation. There is such a lack of regulation in the beauty industry. Health Canada does not consider marketing terms to be related to health or safety. Therefore, such terms are not regulated by Health Canada. So manufacturers make claims that they’re ‘environmentally-friendly,’ ‘natural,’ ‘organic,’ ‘chemical-free’ or even ‘cruelty-free’ when they may not be.
Instead of looking for terms that are really just bold claims used to catch your attention, educate yourself on #safeingredients shop with company’s who third party test, and are transparent about what they use. .
Through the process of discovering why representation matters to others and what I have always felt about it, in tandem I’m deconstructing my own identity, what it means to be whole, what it means to accept otherness, to feel ok that I’m simply being me and that’s always been more than enough.

No matter what side you are on, this person is amazing... Her speech, her determination, her will. So young, so determined, no loss of faith. Don't we seem to lose it with every given year?
I stand with her and we are Responsible and Reasonable gun owners: "Every single person up here today, all these people should be home grieving. But instead we are up here standing together because if all our government and President can do is send thoughts and prayers, then it's time for victims to be the change that we need to see. Since the time of the Founding Fathers and since they added the Second Amendment to the Constitution, our guns have developed at a rate that leaves me dizzy. The guns have CHANGED but our laws have not..." #RemindsMeOfMyFavoriteMovie#LegendOfBillieJean #👊👊👊👏👏👏 #ItDoesntMeanObamaIsComingAfterYourGunsYouSweetSoutherners#EducateYourself#LookAtOtherCountries

Two of my most asked questions are: Do you use a camera or phone to take your hair photos? And do you use a ring light?
So to answer those, I use a camera to take all my photos. I have two cameras, but the one I use in the salon is a DSLR and it's a Canon SL1 and I use a 50mm 1.8 lens. I also don't use a ring light. I use natural light when possible, but then I also use a softbox if I need to add light.
I have found these work the best for me and the look I'm trying to achieve. However, there's a lot more that goes into getting the perfect hair photo outside of using a camera or professional lighting. You have to know the basics of photography and what makes up a perfect photos in the first place.
I'm actually teaching a free online class next Thursday, Feb 22nd and I'm going to be going over what goes into getting that perfect hair photo. Hint: it has nothing to do with whether you use a camera or phone! I'm also going to be talking about how to use Instagram to grow your business, like actually making money from Instagram, not just posting photos and hoping you gain a client.
If you want to sign up, click the link in my bio and I'll send you over the info! Also, if you're not able to watch the class live, still sign up because I'll be sending out a replay for those who can't make it live and you'll have a few days to watch it.
While I'm getting prepped and ready for my class, what do you think is your biggest struggle when it comes to getting the perfect photo?
YES. SO. MUCH. YES. 🎉Just saw this pop up in my newsfeed and immediately had to repost. Anyone who knows me can tell you I lose my mind when the discussion of alkalizing one’s body for health purposes comes into play
💥Your body fights to stay in a pH range of 7.35 to 7.45. Below that, you die of acidity. Above that, you die of alkalinity. And yes, you can die of alkalinity. Shocking, I know. 🤯
❌A current diet/health trend is eating alkaline foods to raise one’s pH. The (flawed❗️) logic behind this is that acidity in the body leads to the development of cancer, arthritis, osteoporosis and other health ailments, whereas having an alkaline system can prevent or even reverse these issues (spoiler alert: this is completely untrue❗️). What many people fail to realize is having an overly alkaline system is just as harmful as an overly acidic one (to put this in perspective, just think about what would happen if you drank a cup of bleach, which is one of the most alkaline substances there is)
💥Furthermore, attempting to increase your alkalinity through food alone is biologically impossible. Many mechanisms are genetically programmed within our bodies to prevent us from slipping out of our optimal pH range, for once again, it WILL kill us
💥 Fun fact: our stomach acid is a pH of 2, so no matter how alkaline the foods we eat are, our body will drop them down to a 2 once they hit our tummies. (If we eat a highly alkaline diet, that just means our body needs to produce more stomach acid to do its job of acidifying the food. This is a good thing, for certain digestive enzymes can only be released once the pH drops below a certain level). So, like I have previously stated, it’s impossible to alter our pH intentionally with food....unless you drink bleach.
💥PSA: don’t drink bleach.
Now please...excuse me if I ma blind and not seeing it in here, BUT...I don't see Where it says the people's right to Keep and Bear Arms...SPECIFICIES ANY SPECIFIC TYPE OF 'arms'. Now, of course. Back Then, they did not Have the ASSAULT RIFLES AND AUTOMATIC - SEMI AUTOMATIC WEAPONS. However, the guns back then were used MOSTLY FOR HUNTING FOR FOOD....NOT specifically created as a quick, accurate, very user friendly means of MASS KILLINGS...OF PEOPLE. So to all of you who keep hiding behind the phrase #readyourconstitution#educateyourself#learnthewordsoftheconstitution and my Personal Favorite : "IT'S OUR 2ND AMENDMENT RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS!" Please...EDUCATE ME on where that right Specifies that ANY AND ALL TYPES OF WEAPONS.FROM THIS DAY.AND.GOING FORWARD INTO THE FUTURE INDEFINITELY..." (or something along those lines). So.Here is MY OPINION & STANCE on this very serious subject:: DEFINITELY OWN A GUN...LEGALLY... TO PROTECT YOU & YOUR FAMILY. ABSOLUTELY DO THAT. BUT THE OPTIONS OF WHICH GUNS TO OWN SHOULD BE LIMITED AND THE TESTING AND REGISTRATION AND BACKGROUND PROCESS SHOULD BE. VERY STRICT. NEVER SHOULD IT BE AS EASY AS IT WAS FOR ME TO GET A GUN 20 YEARS AGO. NOBODY SHOULD EVER BE ABLE TO LEGALLY OWN OR EASILY OR EVEN WITH SEMI DIFFICULTY BE ABLE TO GET AN ASSAULT WEAPON. EVER.
That is all.
It's always cool seeing people come together to work on a project, student collaboration is a fun part of our program and an important skill to have in the workplace. This week at Hope High school we are moving into original projects and at Blueprint we're dissecting some popular songs to reverse engineer so our students can see how the rhythms and melody tracks were made.
