Some Great Digital Yoga Resources If Your studio is Still Closed

Everyone has their own routines for trying to stay sane and healthy during quarantine. Some people work on their sourdough skills, some get weights and lift at home, some Netflix and cocktail. For me, yoga has been a big help. I’ve loved practicing yoga for many years, but I had always been someone who went to classes at yoga studios. I thrived on the group dynamic, the sense of community and the energy. I had always wanted to develop a home practice but never got around to it. Well…with COVID I...

Did Facebook Commit an “Operational Mistake” in Kenosha or is Facebook a Defective Product?

Family members of demonstrators killed in Kenosha have filed a lawsuit against Facebook, alleging a failure to remove a Facebook group event organized by a local militia, some of whose members allegedly later committed violence.

According to Zuckerberg, "the contractors, the...

Trump solves low vote-by-mail fraud rate by suggesting voter fraud

Trump decides to muddy the waters. Simple... The data show that vote-by-mail and absentee ballot voter fraud numbers are close to zero. How to fix that problem of reality not meshing with the talking point? Assure voter fraud by instructing supporters to vote twice (illegally). Very few states have the infrastructure in-place to de-dupe dupliccate voting in a short timeframe. By suggesting that his supporters vote twice, Trump has accomplished his objective, casting doubt on mail in vote tallies. This assures that there is nearly ZERO chance that a winner can...

The Flavorful Kitchen – The Humble Biscuit

The Humble Biscuit Breakfast to Dessert – A Must Have Recipe Biscuits & Jam - The Flavorful Kitchen My love affair with biscuits really began during a business trip to Nashville, TN in May of 2019.
