"A 'maior farsa da historia política brasileira' residiu, isso sim, nos comportamentos moralmente desprezíveis, cinicamente transgressores da ética republicana de delinquentes travestidos então da condição de altos dirigentes governamentais políticos e partidários, que fraudaram despudoradamente os cidadãos dignos de nosso país"
Nice to see the work Headstand is doing to get yoga and meditation practices in schools.
"When a school in New Haven, Connecticut, required yoga and meditation classes three times a week for its incoming freshman, studies found that after each class, students had significantly reduced levels of cortisol, a stress hormone, in their bodies. In San Francisco, schools that participated in Quiet Time, a Transcendental Meditation program, had twice as many students score proficient in English on the California Achievement Test than in similar schools where the program didn’t exist. Visitacion Valley Middle School specifically reduced suspensions by 45 percent during the program’s first year. Attendance rates climbed to 98 percent, grade point averages improved, and the school recorded the highest happiness levels in San Francisco on the annual California Healthy Kids Survey. Other studies have shown that mindfulness education programs improved students’ self-control, attentiveness and respect for other classmates, enhanced the school climate, and improved teachers’ moods."
