Growing Up, Memes, and School: Octavia Spencer Speaks on How Her School Teachers Helped Her Embrace Her Dyslexia balleralert Octavia Spencer Speaks on How Her School Teachers Helped Her Embrace Her Dyslexia-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As OctaviaSpencer continues to be an acting powerhouse, the talented actress never forgets her humble beginnings growing up in Alabama. Recently the AcademyAward-winner opened up about her experiences attending a public school as a student with dyslexia and how it helped shape her into who she is today. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I was a dyslexic child and am a dyslexic adult; that doesn’t really mean that you’re not intelligent, it just means that your brain functions differently,” Spencer explained. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ While she promoted her new film Gifted, Spencer spoke on the things she discovered about herself through her dyslexia. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "I just remember thinking differently,” she said. “I could solve puzzles quicker than the average child. I would start with the mazes at the end and go to the front and be done in, like, 30 seconds. My deductive reasoning was very important.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For Spencer, her ability to see the positives in her uniqueness can be attributed to the teachers she encountered as a child. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Her appreciation for her teachers is the reason why she supports wage increases for them. "When you think about it, they spend the majority of the day with your kids, so they should be compensated. They’re also teaching them and shaping their views about themselves.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Spencer's new film 'Gifted' is set to hit theaters on April 12.

Dieting, Memes, and Alabama: AaredNa Nisso? Efeito Sanfona é mais saudavei que ficar acima do peso, diz estudo O/ACREDITANISS00FICIAL OACREDITANISSO @AcreditaNisso? Barrar o efeitosanfona não é uma tarefa simples, mas uma nova pesquisa da Universidade do Alabama, em Birmingham, sugere que ficar nesse vai e vem dos ponteiros da balança não é tão prejudicial assim para a saúde. Os cientistas envolvidos nessa pesquisa contrariam o senso comum do já que vou ganhar esses quilos de volta, melhor nem tentar. Para eles, emagrecer e engordar depois de um tempo é melhor que continuar gordo. O bioestatístico David Allison, responsável pelo estudo, chegou à conclusão ao observar variações de peso em ratos. A equipe de Allison percebeu que roedores obesos estimulados a engordar e emagrecer para simular o efeito sanfona viveram mais que aqueles que continuaram obesos. Além disso, os que tiveram alterações de peso não sofreram danos. Para Allison, as pessoas deveriam encarar a dieta como uma ida ao dentista. Em seu discurso no encontro anual da Associação Americana para o Avanço da Ciência (AAAS), em Boston, Allison ainda disse que não é uma má ideia perder peso mesmo sabendo que depois de um tempo você vai ganhá-lo de volta. Mas essas declarações e a tese do pesquisador não foram bem recebidas pela comunidade científica. Outros especialistas em alimentação se mostraram reticentes aos “benefícios” do efeito sanfona e alertam para os riscos que ele representa para a saúde. Autor do livro The Diet Myth (ainda sem título em português), Timothy Spector, do King’s College de Londres, defende que esse tipo de comportamento alimentar deve ser evitado a todo custo. Ele desenvolveu pesquisas sobre dieta ioiô com 5 mil pessoas gêmeas. “As informações que temos mostram que perder e ganhar peso faz você engordar depois de um tempo. No estudo com irmãos gêmeos, o gêmeo que fez dieta era geralmente mais gordo a longo prazo que seu irmão que não fez nada.” Fonte: SuperInteressante . SIGAM-ME OS BONS ➡️ @Nandinhatw (ADM)

Family, Football, and Memes: At Least 6 Patriots Are Skipping The White House Caballeralert PATRIOTS PAIR PATRIOT PATRIOTS PATRIOTS At Least 6 Patriots Are Skipping The White House - blogged by: @eleven8 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to the Washington Post, Patriots tight end MartellusBennett and defensive back DevinMcCourty will not be the only players skipping out on the team’s celebratory meeting with the president this year. Defensive end ChrisLong, linebacker DontaHightower, running back LeGarretteBlount and defensive tackle AlanBranch have also opted out of the trip to D.C. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Chris Long, who was one of the few white NFL players to publicly come out and support ColinKaepernick during his National Anthem protests, said he hadn’t been asked to boycott Trump, he had already planned on it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ LeGarrette Blount told the NFL Network, “I will not be going to the WhiteHouse. It’s just some of the things that — I just don’t feel welcome in that house, I’m going to just leave it at that.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On the flip side, Alan Branch and Dont’a Hightower declined the White House invitation for non presidential reasons. “I’m going to hang with family and continue to celebrate until next season starts,” Branch told Sirus XM radio, while Hightower essentially has ‘been-there-done-that’ three times in his football career — twice as a member of Alabama’s BCS title-winning teams and once when the Patriots won the Super Bowl in 2015. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We already know why Martellus Bennett and Devin McCourty won’t be in attendance. I’m sure Trump will understand. He’s only BFF’s with Tom Brady anyway. patriots
