Dermaclip Is A Painless Replacement For Stitches In Closing Wounds (Video)

Yeah. Go medical technology! I am no fan of needles or pain. I have not had stitches yet, so whoever is in charge should get on this before I do. No needles! Gimme the Dermaclip instead of stiches, please.

Glidecycling Looks Fun (Video)

…at least more fun than just jogging.

This bike without pedals is actually better for your joints than running.
– In The Know Innovation

Yep, the Glidecycle may well change the way you think about running (or gliding, or um ri-cycling, or… ah let marketing figure out a name for it).

Racist History Of American Medicine (Documentary Short)

You don’t have to tell me about racism in medicine and research. I. Am. From. Tuskegee, Alabama! Watch the video and you will learn why that matters, too.

People of color in the U.S. have endured centuries of abuse in the name of science. It’s time we stop celebrating this blatantly racist history.

Skin Bleaching In South Africa (Video)

In the U.S. we beat our chests and proclaim, “Black Lives Matter,” “Black And Proud,” even “Wakanda Forever,” and some of our brothers & sisters in South Africa feel compelled to risk breaking the law and getting cancer by chemically lightening their skin??? Sad and shocking…

South Africa’s skin bleaching scandal: Unreported World went to South Africa where the use of controversial skin bleaching creams is on the rise in a new generation. Despite strict laws banning dangerous chemicals they’re widely available and are making people ill. Reporter Tania Rashid met a celebrity who endorses skin bleaching despite the risks and some of those that are trying to end the trade.

Event: Hip-Hop Stew Launch Party

Was checking out Techniques Radio on WREK.org last night and they got the word out on this Hop Stew Launch Party. Looks like a good look for the long weekend. Consider chilling and partying with a cause for at least part of this party weekend. More, much more, at HopStew.com but here’s a good blurb on the event…

Hop Stew Launch will be a fun-filled day party with performances from Hip-Hop legend El Da Sensei of The Artifacts, Shabaam Sahdeeq, John Robinson, Beneficence, Stahhr and Phoenyx. It’s going to be a boom bap extravaganza for true Hip-Hop lovers! Our launch will be hosted by Fort Knox! Music will be provided by DJ Dug Boogie and DJ Fudge. Patrons can enjoy an amazing art exhibit. Hop Stew will be donating a portion of all funds raised at launch to the Kidney Foundation. In 2016, our beloved Dug Boogie was diagnosed with Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) which there is no cure for. Boogie needs a kidney transplant. So, one can only imagine why The Kidney Foundation is a cause dear to our hearts. The launch is geared towards raising funds and awareness. Hop Stew is Hip-Hop for a cause!

Nakefit Footpads Can Replace Your Shoes, Allowing You To Go [Nearly] Barefoot (Video)

You know those Toe Shoes they got where the shoes fit your feet like a five-fingered glove. Looking crazy to all but to all those who wear them (and be wearing them out). But this… a whole other shoe… or un-shoe. As close to barefoot as you can get.

These adhesive pads allow you to walk barefoot without damaging your feet.

A Delightful Day For Ultrasounds And Roller Fitness With Tiffany Haddish & Kevin Hart (Video)

The hits keep coming with this Kevin Hart original series. And Tiff is ackin a DAMN fool, like she is known to do! What’s crazy is part of me believes that Kevin is real with his ‘angst’ at Tiffany’s antics. A sonogram for a man though? Nah man.

Two-for-one ultrasound coupons followed by working out at the roller rink—pretty average day for Kevin and Tiffany.
– LOL Network

Something about the outfit though. I’m kinda fettishing over here. Haddish goes up even higher on the can-get-it list for this. Yup. Tiff can get it, right at the rink, in that blue & pink!

But Kev was right up on that table in the next shot. Hahaaa!

Food: What’s In ‘Your Daily Bread’? (Video)

“The bread you’re buying isn’t actually real bread.”
Zooey Deschanel

So, I could file this under Activism. But it’s about our food. And I know if you like your white bread (I do), this may not make you think, “No more of that sh!t for me.” However, we should KNOW what we are eating… what choices we are making. It’s similar to the GMO debate. Whether you think that kind of food is “bad” or not, you should KNOW it’s there, so you can make an INFORMED choice.

You know what… this is going under Activism, too.

Wait! Before You Take That Power Nap… (Video)

My brother (BoneBreaker Jones) and I speak on this from time to time. We’re both night owls trying to do us AND do our best to meet the daytime demands of ‘their’ world. Going hard, getting older wiser; we know we need rest and respect nap time. We can’t be #TeamNoSleep because that is just not healthy or even productive. But maybe we go about it wrong somehow. In the above clip, we (like me & you, bro can watch later after doing ‘their’ work) learn about the ‘power’ of naps… good and bad.

Let’s build that sleep pressure up while on the grind, then get only the good sleep.
