Anonymous asked: Hello, beautiful! I was wondering if you have any home remedies (like herbs, teas, foods, ect.) for period pains? I get so bloated, really bad stomach pains, and cramps. I don't like taking meds for it. I don't really believe in chemicals that our society has made us believe work, and I'm just looking for more natural remedies. Thank you so much :) have a wonderful day!

vegan-hippie:

yes, last period cycle was the first time in a while that i didn’t use medicine for cramps (i had some left over from before i was vegan, but try not to use it)! (i usually have severely heavy periods + cramps, i i feel your pain

anyway, here are some things which help:

  • hot water bottles on lower abdomen
  • child’s pose and bridge pose (don’t get this confused w/ bow pose as many do - look it up online first!)
  • herbal teas: nettle, green, peppermint, calendula, fennel etc
  • hot lemon and ginger water
  • hot baths w/ bath bombs, lavender or rose essential oil
  • meditation
  • avoid dairy if you eat it
  • reduce caffeine intake
  • eat more greens - i find baby spinach and rocket great

CHINA’S TAXI APP WAR INTENSIFIES
Evil capitalist running dogs will always have you believe that competition is good for the economy. Well, as far as taxi apps go, they just might be right. When taxi apps first appeared the government, as ever wanted their share of the market and almost turned the taxi ordering service into a state-only enterprise by calling several apps to stop; we can only imagine how that might have turned out. However, ultimately, the invisible hand had the upper hand and now China is deeply engrossed in a taxi app war, where passengers can get even refunded for their taxi fare, and taxi drivers are becoming extremely worked up about using apps to take customers.
Using a taxi app when calling for a cab now means that you will never be rejected by a taxi diver again. You can also ride taxis at a much cheaper price than originally. According toXinhua News, payment systems and different apps have been promoting taxi discounts.  DiDi Dache offers: “if you pay with WeChat, you can get at least 12 yuan off.” Kuaidi Dache announces that it will always refund one RMB more than its competitors. Alipay started a campaign with Kuaidi Dachee called  ”500 million to treat the whole nation to getting taxis”. Even when using Baidu Maps, the app will notify you that you can win a lottery by ordering a taxi through it.
To passengers this competition is wonderful. As Weibo user 裘伯纯Benjamin said: “If the government does not control this taxi app thing, people will fully understand why a two-party system would be good.” This post has gotten over 40,000 retweets.
In another article on china.com.cn, the reporter tells a story of how a passenger paid only four RMB for the  30 RMB cab fare. The passenger said that after he called a cab with Didi Dache, the driver asked him to call again with Kuaidi. The taxi driver then split the 30 RMB cab fare into two parts: he paid 16 yuan with WeChat and got 15 yuan off, and then paid 14 yuan with Alipay and got 11 yuan off. In the end, the taxi only cost him 4 RMB.
This taxi app war is actually a war among mobile payment systems. WeChat and Alipay have been fighting for market share for a long time, and the relationship between Tencent and Alibaba has long been a rocky one…

"Greece’s initial budget for the 2004 games was 4.5 billion euros, but the actual cost of the games quickly doubled that estimate. When all was said and done, the cost of the games was 5 percent of Greece’s GDP, and eight years later, the country hasn’t recovered from the debt. The city of Vancouver has given up on recovering all the money it put into its fancy schmancy Olympic Village condos that were later converted into residential homes. Today the buildings form a ghost town, and city officials are struggling to come up with a way to just break even on them. The Nagano Winter Olympics in 1998 plunged the city into a recession, with the tax burden of the games ending up costing around $30,000 per family in the city. And none of these financial disasters compare to Montreal (Greece pending). Their Olympic stadium wasn’t finished until 11 years after the games ended, and it took no less than 30 years to pay down the debt incurred to host the 1976 Olympics.” #CrackedClassic

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."

"I think there’s something very relatable and true about that last person you went back to before you found the one. Who’s that person that you had a sneaking suspicion that it could have been them? You go back and you revisit that and you realize, “No. That wasn’t the answer.” - Craig Thomas
