Figure out how much protein you should be getting for your activity level. Multiply the number that matches your activity level times the number of pounds you weight. For example 0.6 x 150 lbs = 90 Grams of protein.
Adrianne Haslet-Davis dances again for the first time since the Boston terrorist attack last year.
When the bombs went off at the Boston Marathon finish line, Adrianne Haslet-Davis lost the lower half of her left leg in the explosion. She’s a ballroom dance teacher, and she assumed she would never dance again. With most prosthetics, she wouldn’t.
But Hugh Herr, of the MIT Media Lab, wanted to find a way to help her. He created a bionic limb specifically for dancers, studying the way they move and adapting the limb to fit their motion. (He explains how he did it here.)
At TED2014, Adrianne danced for the first time since the attack, wearing the bionic limb that Hugh created for her.
Hugh says, “It was 3.5 seconds between the bomb blasts in the Boston terrorist attack. In 3.5 seconds, the criminals and cowards took Adrianne off the dance floor. In 200 days, we put her back. We will not be intimidated, brought down, diminished, conquered or stopped by acts of violence.”
Amen to that, Hugh.
What’s it like for black women in the Ivy League? The author dives into the little-talked about world of women of color in the Ivy league institutions.
Ralph Jones Jr., a brilliant 16-year-old who had his pick of colleges and chose Florida A&M University, chatted with The Root about why he went with a historically black school over an Ivy League, and the negative attention he’s getting for his decision.
This warms my heart. Shoutout to all the current students and alum of HBCU’s everywhere!
Good for him! Stick with where you will receive a quality education and get the support that you need!
Controversy whatever, he realized he’d have a better college experience and therefore get a better education.
How is this controversy? He chose the school that he wanted to go to and that he believed would be most valuable to him.
