Been working through some long held flexibility challenges over these past few months using these and other stretching modalities and routines. My challenge has been very tight ankle, knee and hip muscles and slowly slowly through constant daily practice I begin to unwind my knots. Do give it a shot if your flexibility challenged in the lower half of your torso.

When the weather forecast announced about the unexpected cold from -9°C
to -12°C last week, Washington-based photographer Angela Kelly decided
to take an advantage of it in one truly creative way. Together with her
7-year-old son, Kelly combined the home-based remedies – dish soap, karo
syrup, and water – and went out to blow bubbles and take pictures as
they freeze and melt.

RESONANCE is a Sensational Eye Opening Documentary that examines 60 years of scientific research, to uncover for the very first time, the actual mechanisms by which mobile phone technology can cause cancer. And, how every single one of us is reacting to the biggest change in environment this planet has ever seen.
Two billion years ago life first arrived on this planet; a planet, filled with a it's own beautiful natural frequency. As life slowly evolved, it tuned into this surrounding frequency and thrived.
By the time mankind arrived on earth this incredible relationship had developed very intimately; a relationship that mainstream science is just beginning to comprehend; however this connection and frequency has alway been innately known by those whom are highly aware and sensitive to their environment.
Research shows, being exposed to this frequency is absolutely integral to us. It controls our mental and physical health, it synchronizes our circadian rhythms, and it aids our immune system and improves our sense of well being. Not only are we surrounded by natural frequencies, our bodies are also filled with them. Our cells communicate using electro magnetic frequencies. Our brain emits a constant stream of frequencies and our DNA delivers instructions, using frequency waves. Without them we couldn't exist for more than a second.
This delicate balance has taken billions of years to perfect. But over the last 25 years the harmony has been disturbed. and disturbed dramatically.Mankind has submerged itself in an ocean of artificial frequencies. They are all around us, filling the air and drowning out the earth's natural resonance.To the naked eye the planet appears to be the same. But at a cellular level it is the biggest change that life on earth has endured; the affects of which we are just starting to see and feel.

Cryptochromes (from the Greek κρυπτό χρώμα, hidden colour) are a class of flavoproteins that are sensitive to blue light. They are found in plants and animals. Cryptochromes are involved in the circadian rhythms of plants and animals, and in the sensing of magnetic fields in a number of species. The name Cryptochrome was proposed as a pun combining the cryptic nature of the photoreceptor, and the cryptogamic organisms on which many blue light studies were carried out.
The two genes Cry1 and Cry2 code for the two cryptochrome proteins CRY1 and CRY2. In insects and plants, CRY1 regulates the circadian clock in a light-dependent fashion, whereas, in mammals, CRY1 and CRY2 act as light-independent inhibitors of CLOCK-BMAL1 components of the circadian clock. In plants, blue light photoreception can be used to cue developmental signals.

The secret lives of invisible magnetic fields are revealed as chaotic ever-changing geometries . All action takes place around NASA's Space Sciences Laboratories, UC Berkeley, to recordings of space scientists describing their discoveries . Actual VLF audio recordings control the evolution of the fields as they delve into our inaudible surroundings, revealing recurrent ‘whistlers' produced by fleeting electrons . Are we observing a series of scientific experiments, the universe in flux, or a documentary of a fictional world?
