Hoy, hace 49 años, el 15 de agosto de 1969 se celebró la primera jornada de los tres días de paz y música que anunciaban los organizadores del Festival de Woodstock, llevado a cabo en una granja de la localidad de Bethel, New York. Asistieron cerca de medio millón de personas aunque los organizadores no esperaban más de 60.000. Por el escenario desfilaron durante el lluvioso fin de semana 33 artistas que protagonizaron el más importante y mítico festival de música rock del siglo XX, entre ellos, Carlos Santana, Janis Joplin, The Who, Jimi Hendrix, entre otros. #festival #anniversary #rock #peace #love #information #music #lamedianota
It's amazing what ordinary people can do if they set out without preconceived notions.
Events can neither be regarded as a series of adventures nor strung on the thread of a preconceived moral. They must obey their own laws.

BROOKLYN MEASLES OUTBREAK COST CITY NEARLY $400K courtesy of NY Post
A 2013 measles outbreak that hit two Brooklyn neighborhoods — infecting 58 people, all of them unvaccinated against the disease — cost the city’s health department nearly $400,000, according to a new study.
Between travel, testing equipment and over 10,000 hours of work by 87 staff members, the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene was forced to spend $394,448 fighting the contagion, the Journal of the American Medical Association inquiry found.
The outbreak began in March 2013, when a single infected child returned to New York from a trip to London, wrote Dr. Jennifer B. Rosen of the city Health Department, who authored the study along with two others.
From that point until June 2013, 58 people contracted measles in Williamsburg and Borough Park, ranging in age from infancy to 32 years old.
Each of the patients was a member of the neighborhoods’ Orthodox Jewish enclaves — and unvaccinated against measles, despite 46 of them being old enough to receive the inoculation, the study found.
The study credited the “insular nature of the affected community” with preventing the outbreak — the largest to hit the five boroughs since 1992 — from growing even more widespread. Still, the authors pegged the $400,000 bill on the lack of vaccinations.
“Measles vaccine refusals or delays can lead to large outbreaks following measles importations, with costly and resource intensive response and containment,” wrote Rosen.
“The significant burden and consequences of measles outbreaks as well as other public health emergencies underscore the importance of continued support for a robust and flexible public health infrastructure for health departments.”

I touched on why cloth menstrual pads are better for your vagina's health. I am also an advocate of cloth nappies.
There are many reasons - money, environmental impact and the health of your baby.
1. As a parent you change upwards of 5,500 nappies from birth to toilet training per child and in Australia approx. 2.1billion nappies are disposed of every year. It takes 200-500 years for a disposable nappy to break down. This leaves a huge impact on our environment.
2. I understand that cloth nappy outlay's can be quite daunting and sometimes can put people off when spending a few hundred all at once. You might even be thinking a disposable only costs me 35c a nappy why would I spend up to $35 on a single nappy. But the cost of a full stash of good quality brand new cloth nappies is around $500 which will last from birth to toilet training where as disposables is upwards of $3500.
3. Disposable nappies are full of chemicals such as Sodium Polyacrylate, Tribuytl Tin (a highly toxic chemical), chlorine, alcohol, synthetic perfumes, sodium lauryl sulfates and sodium fluoride. Many of these chemicals have been banned in women’s hygiene products and have been proven to be extremely toxic when absorbed through the skin, many with long term risks. The plastic that lines a disposable doesn’t allow air to circulate which can cause heat rash and skin irritations in some babies. Disposable nappies keep boy’s genitalia at a higher than normal temperature (up to 1 degree), possibly affecting their fertility. More and more reports are emerging of babies and children who have received burns from the chemicals used in disposable nappies when they have ‘burst’ whilst being worn.
If you have any question on choosing cloth, using it, washing or how to get a good fit. Feel free to message me. 💌😘
“These are not for you buddy.” But edibles are a great smokeless way to medicate. With many edibles you have the ability to micro dose, by cutting them in half or even quarters such as these @wanabrands
Gummies. This is perfect if you are just starting out, or if a full commitment is not for you. If you are interested in trying these or others, come in and talk to our budtenders about what might be right for you.

With summer in full swing, there is nothing more refreshing than having some cold watermelon! 🍉
Watermelon is 90% water 💧 and is a great way to keep you hydrated during the summer! It is a low calorie fruit and is packed with nutrients and antioxidants to help fight off cell damage. ❌
Watermelon contains high amounts of vitamin C (an antioxidant), carotenoids (plant compounds which our body converts into vitamin A), lycopene (a specific type of carotenoid which gives watermelon it's bright colour 🌟), citrulline (an antioxidant and non-essential amino acid that is converted to another amino acid called arginine which is beneficial for cell division, wound healing, and removal of ammonia from the body), and cucurbitacin E (a plant compound that has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects).
I decided to reap the full benefits of watermelon by simply having it cut up into chunks. Adding fresh mint leaves on top is another great way to combine flavours! 🍃
P.S. I must confess that it took me longer to take this photo than it did for me to eat it 🙊 hehe!
Comment below and tell me how you like to enjoy your watermelon! 👇🏼
