Physical Therapy Update September 16th 1911+103
Walked a few hundred feet today, stood for an hour, and biked for forty five minutes. Also snuck in a core workout this morning.
My abs are slowly getting stronger and when I was walking today it felt like my right leg was carrying some of my weight without relying on the leg brace.

So you’re telling me that i can’t wear spaghetti straps but this shit is dress code?
Some kid was threatened with suspension for wearing a Marines shirt and another for chewing a pop-tart into a gun shape.
Don’t create a problem where there isn’t one.
Spaghetti straps aren’t a Constitutionally guaranteed right… the right to bear arms is. Also, if he doesn’t actually have a gun, why are you afraid of a shirt?
Definitely more professional in comparison to spaghetti straps, and all the other crap they advocate for.
Make him a muslim and you got immigration to Europe.
Let’s go be oppressed!

Teenager from India invents device that can convert breath to speech: http://bit.ly/1m7yTBo
This is amazing:
Sixteen-year-old Arsh Shah Dilbagi has developed a new technology called ‘TALK’, which is a cheap and portable device to help people who are physically incapable of speaking express themselves. Right now, 1.4 percent of the world’s population has very limited or no speech, due to conditions such as Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), locked-in syndrome (LIS), Encephalopathy (SEM), Parkinson’s disease, and paralysis. So that’s literally a group of people that could match the entire population of Germany, and all of them unable to speak.
Stephen Hawking has a device to help him communicate, but it’s extremely expensive, costing several thousand dollars, and is also quite bulky. What Dilbagi has managed to do is invent a device that achieves the same thing, but can be purchased for just $80.
The way TALK works is that it’s able to translate the user’s breath into electric signals using a special device called a MEMS Microphone. This technology is composed of a pressure-sensitive diaphragm etched directly into a silicon chip, and an amplifying device to increase the sound of the user’s breath.
By expelling two types of breaths into the device, with different intensities and timing, the user is able to spell out words in Morse code. “A microprocessor then interprets the breathes into dots and dashes, converting them into words. The words are then sent to a second microprocessor that synthesises them into voice,” says Whitney Mallett at Motherboard. “The morse code can either be translated into English, or specific commands and phrases. The device features nine different voices varying in age and gender.”
Get republicans to let people have abortions by reminding them some of those babies will be born colored or gay
You just suggested that an unborn child should be killed for being gay or colored. Then again, that’s what plannedparenthood founder, Margaret Sanger wanted.
"We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members." -Margaret Sanger
Do you not understand that I was criticizing Republicans for hating colored and gay people
I’m fully aware of that. I chose to ignore it because it’s absurd.
republicanhousewife proudblackconservative and proudgayconservative would be glad to remind you how absurd it is.
Welcome to Roosevelt Week! In conjunction with our Board Vice President Ken Burns’s new documentary series "The Roosevelts: An Intimate History," this week we will be featuring related records from the holdings of the usnatarchives and the fdrlibrary.
Theodore Roosevelt and the regiment under his command, the 1st United States Volunteer Cavalry, known as the “Rough Riders,” became heroes after their victory at the Battle of San Juan Hill during the Spanish-American War. Shortly after the war ended, Roosevelt was elected as Governor of New York, thanks in large part to his wartime exploits, beginning his long and storied career in high-profile politics.
Discover more about Teddy, Franklin, and Eleanor Roosevelt in “The Roosevelts: An Intimate History,” premiering tonight on pbstv at 8pm EST.
