The glory of sea minerals. Arms and armor objects are all too often readily assumed to be made of metal, but in our field an extraordinary range of other materials has traditionally been used to make the core of or simply enrich those works. Mother of pearl, the iridescent blend of minerals secreted by mollusks and coating their shells is one of them, and while it was employed in many other cultures it certainly was given a place of eminence in Japan, especially in the decoration of saddles. Here is a particularly stunning (and beautifully lit) example from the 15th century (Muromachi period), which I was able to see at the Tokyo National Museum. The harmonious combination of ornamental patterns for the mother of pearl inlay (the core of the saddle is pine) and the shimmer produced by the gentle curves of the structure are mesmerizing. The fact is, objects in our field can be quite delicate and more often than not they are jewel-like. I can't wait to take a closer look at our Japanese saddles when I am back in the office #misconceptions#armsandarmor#equestrian#saddle#kura#muromachi#motherofpearl @tokyonationalmuseum
People have such a misconception about certain dogs especially when they don't even know the breed! Titan (fluffy) is an Akita/Malamute but people think he's some sort of Alsatian or German Shepherd, he's the most harmless dog I've ever known & so bloody soppy and to watch people cross the street to avoid him is like watching the kid the no one wants to play with 💔🐕 #Akita#malamute#softy#misconceptions#lovehim
#NewJersey has come under criticism for not punishing a giant Danish bank that engages in anti-Israel #economic activity. Danske Bank, the largest bank in the Scandinavian country, is #blacklisted by New York State for violating its anti-BDS law, shielding #Israel from economic #warfare . 🇮🇱 #BDS is a serious threat to Israel and is solely anti-Semitic in nature; the campaign of the BDS movement is crafted upon #fallacies and #misconceptions about Israel. A movement that is built on anti-Semitic values and spews hate speech should not be condoned or ignored.
One of the #misconceptions of the word #witch in #wicca . The dictionary even states that witches are "evil" and have pointed hats. In old books, witches are human females that work with #earth and #spirit . Thoughts?
Body-policing body-shaming fertility-alert Aunty
Translation: Wow! Looking very slim, trim and svelte. Looking good. Last time I saw you, your cheeks were a little full na? Now finally your figure has a shape. Thank god. What are you doing? Diet control? Treadmill? Weights? What? Weight lifting? Are you trying to be a body builder? No no no! No need to listen to those trainer-fainers. Don't you want to have children? I've heard you can't have children if you do weights. Leave this stuff. Why do women need to do all this? Do you want to be a flimsy stick or one of those wrestlers? No need need to become a stick, women are better off curvy. Curvy women look nice in saris. Otherwise it'll be like draping a rag over a stick. Leave this weight lifting stuff. You are young, if you give your body a good scrubbing in the bath, you'll lose 20 pounds.
It amazes me that there are still misconceptions on women lifting. Honestly, it comes from an old way of thinking. This is not to say that people that have these misconceptions are horrible, dumb or purposely mean/ cruel. Below are the most common things I have heard others say, when it comes to women building muscle or lifting in general. Maybe seeing these and being aware of the fact that some of these are hurtful and demeaning will help anyone guilty of it be more aware of what they say. This isn't aimed at one specific person and its most definitely not aimed at just men (honestly I hear more of these from other women than men) it is just food for thought. -You wont look feminine anymore. -You look like a man -Don't get too big thats not attractive. -My favorite👉That can't be good for your body, women aren't built to get muscular. #fitness#lift#gym#foodforthought#misconceptions#workout#muscle#womenthatlift#empowereachother#figurecompetitor#strong#inspireothers#health 💪😊
Believe it or not, I do eat foods other than protein ice cream bowls 😂 💁🏼 like chicken and veggies. If you follow my snap story than you already know I actually eat veggies on the daily. Flexible dieting/iifym does include fun foods like Halloween Oreos 😍 but in order to hit your macros and get in micros-vitamins, minerals; EFAs, essential amino acids; it also includes a lot of this 👆🏼👆🏼👆🏼 Eating whole nutrient dense foods is always an important part of hitting your macros. Don't forget that! #eatyoveggies#microgains#macros#iifym#misconceptions#dinner#broccolini#squash#bakedchicken

🙌Hands down the best article I've read on Pilates for newcomers 👉 @bbcnews cleverly epitomises all the reasons why NOT enough of you do Pilates! General misconceptions of Pilates include:
- It is something like yoga but a bit slower
- How is it a workout if I don't sweat? - It won't help me loose weight - It is only for older people in church halls - It is only for people with back pain
💫I URGE you to read this article even if to realise some of the benefits of starting Pilates TODAY. 💫And it is not JUST for back pain!
As The Editor outlines 👉"I'm happy to hold my hands up and admit my preconceptions were wrong. Pilates does provide a very deep work out experience, and to me, it's far more appealing than lifting weights at the gym". Rant over 🤗

A common misconception of my profession; of me - "...as a therapist, you'll be issue free won't you?" The answer is out right no - and for my friends and family who know me - they would openly say the same about me.
The difference is that more often than not, I am aware of my issues, particularly those which I addressed in my personal therapy journey throughout my training (and at times afterwards) and I am rarely bounded by them. What I mean is that because I am aware of them, I understand them, their value or draw-backs and so I can hold this in mind and step out of them.
Over the years, there are some things I don't have to think about anymore because they have become integrated into who I am; likewise, there are still some things that come and bite me on my rear end - at times when I am stressed or tired for example.
So no - I'm definitely not issue free, not 'normal' and can have days where I struggle too.
Is there a common misconception in your professional role?
