All of the new trainees at work are unsanitary as FUCK. I could cry. I was freaking out so goddamn bad. Is it cold in the store? Is that it?! Is that why most of them wipe their noses with their hands every few minutes and never FUCKING WASH THEM AFTERWARDS? HOW ABOUT HANDLING THEIR USED GUM AND NOT WASHING THEIR HANDS. PLEASE DONT VISIT MY STORE.

As I was sitting in the back of the police car, I remembered the countless times my father came home frustrated or humiliated by the cops when he had done nothing wrong. I felt his shame, his anger, and my own feelings of frustration for existing in a world where I have allowed myself to believe that “authority figures” could control my BEING… my ability to BE!
Danièle’s husband, Brian Lucas, who is white, says he believes they were targeted because they are an interracial couple.

Police officers in Ferguson, Missouri, have begun wearing body cameras after weeks of unrest over the shooting death of an unarmed black teen by a white officer and sharply differing accounts of the incident, officials said on Sunday.
Michael Brown, 18, was shot multiple times by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9, sparking nearly three weeks of angry protests in the St. Louis suburb and drawing global attention to race relations in the United States.
Law enforcement and witnesses gave differing accounts of what transpired before Brown was shot, with police saying the teen had struggled with the officer. Witnesses say Brown held up his hands and was surrendering when he was shot multiple times in the head and chest.
The discrepancy has revived calls for officers across the county to be outfitted with body cameras to help capture an accurate record of police-involved incidents.

Yeah that’s great first step but what is it going to accomplish when the whole department/system is so corrupt? What’s going to stop them from deleting footage the same way they turn in empty/false reports?

Amazing images. The TIME & Bloomberg Businessweek cover photos were both taken by Scott Olson (Getty Images) who was arrested by the St. Louis PD during the protests and later released. The New Yorker painting was done by New York artist Eric Drooker.

6 “facts” about CrossFit that simply aren’t true 

2. CrossFit is dangerous and you will injure yourself.
"There’s an assumption that you’re going to get hurt or get sick to your stomach," said Tom Higgins, coach at CrossFit Victory City.
CrossFit emphasizes technique and safety, yet the misconception that injuries are inevitable runs rampant. Unfortunately, at this point, there are few studies to verify this one way or the other. The one peer-reviewed study included only 43 participants. Another more in-depth study is in process, and early results indicate that CrossFit’s injury rate is no different than general fitness workouts and even Olympic and power weightlifting.
Mikel Blount, a coach at CrossFit X-Factor, says in four years of being part of CrossFit she has yet to see a major injury. “As a coach, we spend a lot of time watching people and their movement, making sure that people don’t get hurt. Making sure that you’re lifting something you’re capable of lifting. You’re doing things in the best way possible so you don’t get hurt.”
