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.

Questlove Speaks On How F*cked Up It Would Be To Cut The EPA’s Budget (Video)

Questlove and the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC) put together this light-hearted PSA on what is ultimately a life or death situation. C’mon, current Administration… What? You don’t think it’s important to ensure that we have drinkable water, breathable air, and uncontaminated produce?? That really is f*cked up.

(All jokes and subtleties aside, don’t mess with the Environmental Protection Agency in ANY way. The EPA’s work is too important for scoring political points.)

Hahaaa! She said she’s gotta get baking before her oven breaks down. Easy lady. Take it easy. Experts agree that you can still have a baby after 35. Above, Adam tells you why.

The data that “modern” fertility advice is based on is actually straight-up medieval.

Technology: Tiny Device Could Heal Even Brain Injuries With Just A Touch (Video)

Wow. So instead of harvesting stem cells that can become any cell needed for medical care & repairs, just create a dime-sized device that can tailor most any cell. Great tech!

A new device has been developed at The Ohio State University, which turns cells into other types of cells required for treating diseased conditions. During testing, one touch completely repaired injured legs of mice over three weeks!

Darryl ‘DMC’ McDaniels Declares That Having Mental Health Problems Is Not Shameful (Video)

My brother, BoneBreaker Jones, and I are constantly talking about this. When you have a health problem, you should get help! Mental health is health, and your health is you wealth. Don’t lose your HEALTH! Mental health problems affect everyone, even the mighty King Of Rock, the Devastating Mic Controller, Darryl McDaniels aka DMC of Run DMC.

No shame. If you need help, admit it and get it! Don’t know where/how? Just start talking and asking people you care about. Ask them to help you get to the right professional. But don’t just ignore the situations you are going through like it’s all good #TalkToSomebody

Deepak Chopra​ Give Tips For You To Get Your Best Night’s Sleep (Video)

You and boo should take a hot bath together after an early dinner. Don’t forget Jasmine (bonus if someone’s name is actually ‘Jasmine’) for the therapy. Then turn down for… BED! I would suggest putting on that C Brown “F*** You Back To Sleep” song but Deepak Chopra says that’s a sack time no-no. Soooo, y’all will just have to figure out your bedroom activity without music. You’ll figure it out *wink*

There’s not much worse than insomnia or a lousy nights sleep. Deepak Chopra, physician, educator and author of “You Are the Universe: Discovering Your Cosmic Self and Why It Matters,” reveals the secrets to a restful nights sleep.

Politics: President Donald Trump Promised To Protect The Sick And Poor, To Give Them A ‘Better Deal’… And He Is Not… At All (Video)

Wow. Still hard to believe that we elected a U.S. President in much the same way we elected a class president in grade school – the guy that promised spaghetti and pizza for lunch and two recesses every day won… because we bought the lies. But when we did not get more pizza and play time, we lived. This VOX clip illustrates how, with Donald Trump as the ‘head of the class’ as President, many of us might suffer and DIE.

So… What folks hate about Obamacare (The Affordable Care Act) is exactly what Trumpcare (The ‘Higher Cost Care’ Act) will allow MORE of??? That’s not what ANYONE voted for, is it? IS IT?!

Just watch. It’ll make you wanna say, “I can’t…” until you realize ‘you have to’ (because the ‘Yes We Can’ guy is gone).

Out Cold: How Long Does It Take To Get Frostbite? (Video)

So wind chill DOES matter. For real! All these years, since bus stop forecasts on the evening news weather reports to just now, I was thinking that wind chill was just a matter of comfort; how long you could ‘chill’ in the wind, so to speak. But naaaaah son, it’s real in the field (AND at the bus stop). It turns out that extreme cold, in concert with wind chill, can freeze uncovered extremities within MINUTES. Introducing… frostbite!

Yeah, I used the word ‘concert’ – but think more ‘lose your fist’ than pumping your fist to ‘Lose Yourself’ if you find yourself in the middle of a windy winter in Detroit without gloves and gear. Just saying.

Frostbite is a serious condition. Cold temperatures can cause the skin and tissue to start freezing, killing the cells. But, wind-chill can drastically change how long you’ll last.
