A pragmatist turns his back resolutely and once for all upon a lot of inveterate habits dear to professional philosophers. He turns away from abstractions and insufficiency, from verbal solutions, from bad a priori reasons, from fixed principles, closed systems, and pretended absolutes and origins. He turns towards concreteness and adequacy, towards facts, towards action and towards power. That means the empiricist temper regnant and the rationalist temper sincerely given up. It means the open air and possibilities of nature, as against dogma, artificiality, and the pretense of finality in truth. - William James

Tinashe and Peppermint Tea

Creativity is one of the most important things in my life
It’s about vibing out in my own space
Feeling like I can tap into the part of me that doesn’t judge
And just goes with whatever I’m feeling or thinking at the moment
I like to be creative in many aspects
From painting to writing to making videos
You truly have to go with whatever you’re feeling
You can’t plan it
There’s no step-by-step to follow
There isn’t a formula for how it’s done
You really just have to follow your instincts
It’s all about tapping into your natural instincts

I find inspiration in relationships, the culture, nature
Everything around me
And then I just kind of live with it for a while
And go from there and see where it takes me
I truly love the challenge of trying to make something out of nothing
Sometimes it’s really not fun
Sometimes it’s definitely painful
But that’s the beauty of the creative process
You just have to go with it

I started making music as long as I could make noise
Music provides an escape for me
An escape from my day-to-day
An escape from anything that’s going on in my life
It just allows me to go away into a place of pure creativity
I know when a song is done when I get that satisfied feeling
That I know that there’s nothing left that I could fix or change or make better
I know that it’s finished

I’m Tinashe and I’m a writer
I’m an artist
I’m a creator
And that is my very favorite title


Honestly I’m in it though my run just begun
Better yet if honest I’m the one nearly done
Hopefully when I hit 21 I’ll be gone
Look at me let’s have a little fun
Some people wasn’t feeling me
Some thought I was niave
I know and my hand’s steady
Just did my home theatre release
I put in overtime
Plenty keeping on the grind
I’m about to blow your mind
Race you to the finish line
Woohoohoo

The Benefits of Exercise Training in Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an immune-mediated disease characterized by inflammatory demyelination and neurodegeneration within the CNS. This damage of CNS structures leads to deficits of body functions, which, in turn, affect patient activities, such as walking, and participation. The pathogenesis and resulting consequences of MS have been described as concepts within the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) model—an international standard to describe and measure health and disability. Evidence suggests that exercise training in people with MS has the potential to target and improve many of the components outlined in the ICF model. Although the body of research examining the effects of exercise training on depression, cognition and participatory outcomes is not sufficiently developed, some preliminary evidence is promising. Exercise training is proposed to affect inflammation, neurodegeneration, and CNS structures, but current evidence is limited. In this Review, we discuss evidence from clinical trials that suggests beneficial effects of exercise training on muscle strength, aerobic capacity and walking performance, and on fatigue, gait, balance and quality of life. Issues with current studies and areas of future research are highlighted.

For the warrior, the path to enlightenment comes by openly and objectively studying all forms of martial arts, sticking to the true path of the warrior, allowing no dishonesty in your heart, sharpening and trusting your intuition, and diligently practicing and clinging to the truth. In time, once the clouds of confusion have cleared, you will come to true enlightenment. Many think that they are on the true path of enlightenment, some through religion, and some through education. But true enlightenment can be seen by what a person has done, not by what he says. Those who have missed the mark may chatter all day long about this and that, but they have never done anything.  Anyone can make a good argument, by few can show good results. - Miyamoto Musashi

Ya'll must have forgot! 
Roy Jones Jr. breaks down his boxing legacy for us musically

When they stole my gold medal in Seoul, Korea
Let's look back at my whole career
Cuz y'all musta forgot!
The "best pound for pound" is mine
Hit Percy Harris with four hooks at one time
Y'all musta forgot!
When I beat Bernard Hopkins, and won the IBF
The right was hurt, beat him with the left
Y'all musta forgot!
You remember the left hook that James Toney got
Sucka move that I stole from a gamecock
Y'all musta forgot!
Will there be another Roy Jones? Probably not
Stopped Virgil Hill with a body shot
See y'all musta forgot!
I got disqualified in March of '97
After givin a whippin to Montell Griffin
Late hit - my title; they had to take it
Why? I guess that's the only way I could lose
Five months later; rematch, I needs my crown
First round, one punch and he sat down
Don't get me mad cuz I'm amped already
Took titles from fighters who was champs already
The heart and soul of boxing on HBO
What these other fighters take me fo? A joke?
Ah y'all musta forgot!
And they got the nerve to say I ain't fight nobody
I just make 'em look like nobody
Y'all musta forgot! 
And David Telasco, he really asked for it
So I beat him with a fractured wrist
See y'all musta forgot! (remember that...)
In the ring I BOX, there is none higher
When I use these, they call me sire
To burn my kingdom, I must lose fire
And I won't stop boxing till I retire, I'm Roy
Y'all musta forgot! Y'all musta forgot!
When I beat Reggie Johnson
And took his light heavyweight title from him
See y'all musta forgot! That I'm nice with these
Y'all musta forgot! This is what I do
Y'all musta forgot!
We could go on and on, Mike McCallum, Vinnie Pazienza
See y'all musta forgot! Y'all musta forgot!
Y'all musta forgot!
