So my teacher told us that two blue eyed people can’t have a brown eyed kid and this kid in my class said “but both my parents have blue eyes and I have brown eyes”.  The teacher said “so you’re adopted”.  THe next day the kid came in and told us that he confronted his parents about it and that they said he was adopted but wanted to wait for the right time to tell him.

Upside-Down Ads Reveal The Subtlety Of Depression

Singapore-based suicide prevention organisation Samaritans of Singapore recently ran a series of ads which cleverly uses ambigrams to highlight the difficulty in understanding and identifying depression. The print ads feature images showing a positive message.

However, when the ad is inverted, a sadder, more depressing message is revealed.

The advertisement’s tagline “The signs are there if you read them” is printed upside-down so that readers will know to flip the ads over.

It also reinforces the message that it is easy to miss the warning signs of depression.

YOGA FOR HANDSTAND : Strenghten your arms, work your core, challenge your balance, do a handstand.

From top left, line by line :

  • plank pose - chaturanga - upward facing dog - side plank
  • forearm plank - side forearm plank - bridge pose variation - upward plank pose
  • crow pose prep ( one leg up, hold for a few breaths) - modified side plank - half moon pose - extended cat pose

Preparing for inversions, getting used to be upside down :

  • downward facing dog - dolphin pose ( preparing for forearm stand) - headstand prep ( lift one leg, hold, and eventually lift both legs to get into a headstand) - standing straddle pose ( preparing for tripod headstand)
  • handstand prep - your success at doing a handstand

> Practice inversions against a wall, be careful !

Once you are comfortable in a headstand ( against a wall or not), move to forearm stand, and then practice handstand against the wall.

Tuto for handstand , click buddy, click !
