Almita Vamos 🙌 #secondmom I've known her since I was 7 years old, and it's the first time my family had the pleasure of welcoming her to our home! Studying with her was one of the motivating incentives for us to immigrate. I took a year off from playing the violin when I was 15 for various reasons, but she pulled me right back by putting a violin under my chin and getting me scholarships for extra lessons with her throughout the year. Now, I text her clips of my playing once in a while for advice, and she sends me comments to which I can only respond, "lol." 🔥 #stillgotit#stilllearning

@michsygold - (FoxNews.com) - A dog that was set to be euthanized has become a police dog for an Ohio police department.
The dog, Leonard, 2, is the first pit bull to be certified for police employment in Ohio, according to Fox 28. Leonard is slated to begin his full-time job on Saturday at the Clay Township Police Department. He will also be the township’s first K-9.
Leonard was set to be euthanized at the Union County Humane Society in Marysville. The shelter’s director Jim Alloway said the staff found the dog to be aggressive and would have had a hard time being adopted, according to the The Blade.Alloway, who has a background with police dogs, believed Leonard could be a well-suited as a police dog. When Leonard would see someone carrying something, he would attempt to grab it, Alloway noted. “For the average home, that’s a big problem,” said Alloway. “But it’s great for law enforcement.” Alloway communicated with the #StormDogK9Training in #Sunbury , Ohio, who were at first skeptical because they had never trained a #pitbull before. But they ultimately agreed to train Leonard to sniff out drug odors. “He has quite the work ethic,” said Krishea Osborne, Storm Dog’s director of training for law enforcement. “He’s got so much play and drive and hunt that he’s a great police dog.” Terry Mitchell, the chief of Clay Township Police Department, and Leonard will be partners. Chief Mitchell and Leonard have been training together for a few weeks, and the dog now lives with the officer at his home. “Now he’s our bud,” Chief Mitchell said. “Everyone on the department loves him. It’s been nothing but good.” - #regrann#dog#dogsofig#veganfortheanimals#pitbull#dontbullymybreed#animallover#animalsarefriends#ohio#police#ohiostatepatrol#dogsofinstgram

When practiced with thoughtful dedication, yoga promotes and enhances optimal physical and emotional wellness – for everyone. Yoga balances the chaos of modern life. It is the time-tested, ancient, original stress reliever. And it can make a real and quantifiable difference in improving your daily life.
Modern science is starting to understand the power of yoga to improve health. Yoga has been shown to:
* lower blood pressure
* improve cardiovascular health
* help manage stress
* promote quality sleep
* help manage chronic back and neck pain
* improve blood sugar control in diabetics
* fight depression
* relieve arthritis pain
* support the immune system
And then there are the profound benefits of yoga that are harder to measure:
* increased energy and ease
* greater self awareness and self acceptance
* deeper connection to friends, family and the greater community
* more patience and understanding
* and perhaps the space in your heart and mind to contemplate life’s bigger questions.
Bottom line – yoga is transformative! Begin your practice today so you can start being the best version of YOU now!
