Queen Latifah, Life, and Love: Queen Latifah's Mother Rita Owens Dies From Chronic Heart Condition@balleralert mao Queen Latifah’s Mother Rita Owens Dies From Chronic Heart Condition - blogged by @worldwidekeege ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Dana Owens a.k.a the great Queen Latifah, announced Wednesday that her mother, Rita Owens, has passed away from a severe heart condition that has been ailing her for more than a decade. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "It is with a heavy heart that I share the news, my mother, Rita Owens passed away today... Anyone that has ever met her knows what a bright light she was on this earth. She was gentle, but strong, sweet, but sassy, worldly but pragmatic, a woman of great faith and certainly the love of my life.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Heart failure is a chronic progressive condition where the heart is unable to pump blood efficiently through the body. Rita Owens was on medication, had a defibrillator implanted in her chest to prevent heart attacks, and a strict diet of low salts and fats with lots of vegetables. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ”She had struggled with a heart condition for many years and her battle is now over... I am heartbroken but know she is at peace. Thank you for your kindness, support and respect for our privacy at this time. Much Love, Dana Owens (aka Queen Latif‎ah), forever Rita Owens’ daughter.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Latifah mentioned to PEOPLE in a previous interview in 2015 that when she was not in California, she was at her mother’s New Jersey home helping with caregiving duties. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ She broke the news to PEOPLE about her mother’s death and impact on her life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "I watched her come through so many things, ups and downs, hospitalizations – I mean really being in the ICU for that matter – you know, going through tough times and watching her come back and bounce back and still maintain this sense of humor, and love and drive and will... I just love her so much more, I respect her so much more. She really just gives me hope for life and the world.” Latifah said. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ R.I.P. the great Rita Owens.

Child Support, Fail, and Jail: Jay-Z and Roc Nation to Invest $3 Million in App That Combats Mass Incarceration @balleralert Jay-Z and Roc Nation to Invest $3 Million in App That Combats Mass Incarceration-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Jay-Z and Roc Nation will reportedly make a $3 million investment in an app called Promise, that combats mass incarceration. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ According to the website, the app was created by Phaedra Ellis-Lamkins and Diana Frappier to “get people out of jail and provide ongoing support and supervision to help keep them out.” The hope is that the platform will exist as an alternative to incarcerating individuals who cannot afford bail or who miss court dates by mistake. It will provide services to users that will help them log upcoming court dates, counseling appointments, and drug tests. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ When it comes to rehabilitation, Promise plans to provide programs to users that assist with job training and getting information about housing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ As a rapper, Jay-Z has used his platform to consistently speak about how the jail system is designed to fail those of low class and people of color. Last year the rapper wrote an opinion piece on Father’s Day about the exploitative bail industry. For many individuals, they are jailed due to their inability to afford bail, despite not being convicted of crimes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ During an interview with TechCrunch, Ellis-Lamkins spoke on the small infractions that lead to many people of color ending up behind bars. “People are going to jail because they look at a piece of paper and misread it, or are going to jail because they can’t afford a class because they’re instead paying child support. If we’re putting people in jail because they’re poor, brown or black, we’re spending money the wrong way.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “We are increasingly alarmed by the injustice in our criminal justice system,” Jay-Z said in a statement confirming his involvement with the app. “Money, time and lives are wasted with the current policies. It’s time for an innovative and progressive technology that offers sustainable solutions to tough problems. Promise’s team, led by Phaedra, is building an app that can help provide ‘liberty and justice for all’ to millions.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀

Advice, Clothes, and Facebook: massive calves workout ofactsoftraining seated calf raises standing dumbbell calf raises bodyweight calf raises seated calf raises standing dumbbell calf raises bodyweight calf raises (single leg) (single leg) (single leg) 🔥🤔HOW DO I BUILD HUGE CALVES? Founder 👉: @king_khieu. Some people are genetically born with massive calves while others are born with small ones. However, not to worry. If you follow this advice, you will develop huge calves in no time. It will simply take consistency, intensity and progressive overloading. Here are some tips that will help you bring out the size of your calves. 1 - Train calves as if if were a major muscle group. Do not just train them at the end of a leg workout. 2 - Keep the full range of motion slow and controlled. Focus on the squeeze instead of bouncing up and down. 3 - Train them 2-3 times a week. They recover quickly. 4 - On calf raises, focus on keeping the tension-weight on the big toe instead of the outside of the foot. 5 - Finish them off with high reps and drop sets. 6 - Change up the feet position including inward, outward, straight, shoulder width and wider than shoulder width. 7 - Stretch properly at the end of your workout.

Gas Pedal, Memes, and True: Finish Start Concentric Contract while muscle shortens Start Hold Finish adrjacob harden Eccentric Isometric Contract while Contract with muscle lengthens no movement DIFFERENT TYPES OF MUSCLE CONTRACTION In fitness and rehab, the only way to progress is by incrementally adding more and more stress to the system over time. This is called progressive overload.📈💪 . You've heard me talk about different types of loading like eccentric and isometric, and 😕 I get asked all the time what I mean. So here we go. . There are 3 types of muscle contraction. . Concentric: 🔹This is "lifting a weight". The muscle being contracted (bicep here) actively shortens as it contracts. This is what is most often though of when we think about training and lifting. Eccentric: 🔹This is "lowering the weight". The muscle lengthens while it contracts. If concentric is the gas pedal of your car, eccentric is the brakes. It controls the movement of a joint. It is also where the most muscle damage occurs so slowing down the negative portion of a lift will often leave you sore. The flip side is also true though as something like a kettlebell swing can be great conditioning as there is minimal eccentric and little muscle damage from which you have to recover. Isometric: 🔹This is "holding the weight". The muscle does not change length and the joint does not move during the contraction. Isometrics are great for early rehab phases and is the first loading we introduce after injury. Strength gained from isometrics is fairly position specific so they are useful for strengthening end ranges and weak points in a lift. So now you know what I mean when I talk about these different loading schemes. (Plus you'll be ready for the next trivia night 🤓) Hope you learned a little something!
