“‘As we have said all along, Meek was unjustly convicted and should not have spent a single day in jail,’ his lawyer, Joe Tacopina, said in a statement.” #meekmill#nytimes#justiceisserved#joetacopina#tacopinalaw @meekmill @nytimes @tacopinalaw
LET FREEDOM RING. Last month, the NYTimes shared extensive research on the punishing reach of racism for Black boys. From longer incarceration sentences to individual biases that consciously or subconsciously see black men as threats, the effects of racism have shown crippling effects on generations of Black men, even for those born into economic privilege.

In Amy Schumer’s new film, “I Feel Pretty,” the down-on-herself Renee (played by @amyschumer) hits her head in a SoulCycle accident and awakens believing that she has miraculously become supermodel-hot (she’s so convinced that she thinks her closest friends won’t even recognize her). NYT culture critic Amanda Hess (@astromwallhess) writes that the movie is based on a pretty little lie: Looks don’t matter and it’s what’s on the inside that counts.

“She had hoped she and her son would find refuge together. Instead, the agents ordered her to place her son in the back seat of a government vehicle, she said later in a sworn declaration to a federal court. They both cried as the boy was driven away.” Supporting immigrant Rights is supporting human rights.

When I first moved to NYC some 3 and a half years ago - I knew no one in the fitness world. Literally no one.
So when people ask me how they first should start out, I emphasize one thing over everything else: networking. I would take a new instructor’s class once a week, find time to grab coffee with studio owners, and connect with editors over social media. Some connections were made super naturally and easy, others I only spoke with once. However, everyone I met influenced me in some way in my journey. I do know that it’s not very easy to speak with strangers and slide into those DM’s. So here are a few tips on how to get started:
• Find people that you have meaningful things in common with. It’s much easier to make a connection when you’ve got something to talk about - whether you’ve worked at the same place, went to the same school, or just enjoy the same things - you need a hook to get started.
• Create your ‘5 sentence pitch.’ Once you decide to reach out to them, your words better be straight to the point. What are you looking to achieve by connecting with them? What could they help you out with? Don’t drag this on, nobody will be reading paragraphs from strangers.
• Make it easy for them. You’re the one that needs the help, so don’t be the one that makes it difficult. Work around their schedules, find out where they are during the day and make sure that you set up time that is convenient for them.
