Day 3 of 10. Name 10 all-time favorite albums that really made an impact and are still on your rotation list, even if only now and then. Post the cover, no need to explain and nominate a person each day to do the same. Non-Phixion - The Future Is Now (2002) My second favorite group album ever. Raw as a MF this album is the definition of an underground classic. Timeless piece to this day. From the production to the subject matter. Incredible album flawlessly done. DJ Premier, Pete Rock, Necro, MF Doom, Beatnuts, Large Professor and even Stephen Carpenter from the Deftones. Amazing features and the perfect length. #nonphixion#thefutureisnow#illbill#goretex#sabacred#djeclipse#unclehowie
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Follow @innovationstation for more amazing ideas! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You may not have realized that the air we breathe isn’t that clean 🌫️. With a constant stream of pollution, a Finnish 🇫🇮 company called Naava has decided enough is enough. Its smart wall is filled with plants 🌿 that produce clean indoor air 24/7. Customers can customize the wall’s plant color, size, and cost 💸. Instead of using soil, microbes are embedded at the roots to enhance the plant’s purifying capabilities. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The wall also includes sensors which can change the amount of water 🌊, light 💡, and airflow as required. An AI system is also used, monitoring satellite 🛰️ weather data 📊 to adapt the wall if needed. Oh, and every single plant used is allergen-free. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How much would you be willing to spend 💳 on a green wall like this? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Politics aside, if you care about people in general, mental health, future generations or the greater good of society, consider this: the impact of childhood trauma is profound; it not only impacts those suffering in the ‘present’ but adults who have a history or childhood trauma, are at much greater risk for developing serious emotional, mental & physical health problems (which impacts the rest of society!). One solution: intervene now. If you don’t care now, one day you’ll have to.
"Coming out of high school, I honestly had no intention to go to a university like UC Berkeley, even if I was qualified to get in (which I certainly wasn’t). My dream was to play competitive college golf and study something that would allow me to have a career in golf, the game that gave me joy throughout high school. But, after a year studying sports and entertainment management, I found out that a career in golf just wasn’t for me.⠀ ⠀ I made the difficult decision to transfer out of Miami and head to a 2-year community college in Southern California. There, I found my place studying Political Science while continuing to play the game I love on the golf team.⠀ ⠀ After achieving my 2-year associates with success both academically and athletically, I had yet another difficult decision to make… Continue my dream of playing competitive golf in college by transferring to a 4-year university that had a spot for me on their golf team, or transfer to UC Berkeley, a university that had never crossed my mind until I discovered I was smart enough to get in and attend after my time in CC.⠀ ⠀ I was accepted into UC Berkeley and after much deliberation, I decided to finish my undergrad career there. This decision made me put the golf clubs away for a couple of years because I didn’t have a car and I was ballin’ on a college budget. While this was hard to do, it did give me more time for other things. I honestly still can’t believe that I ended up at UC Berkeley. It’s crazy to think that it’s over now and I will be embarking on a new journey. I’m not entirely sure what the future holds for me, but I know I will carry my experiences at UC Berkeley with me in whatever I do." -Joe, UC Berkeley
