Maimah Karmo on what's special about being an entrepreneur in the DMV on DMV CEO (@dmv.ceo) - Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia #dmv#washingtondc#maryland#virdinia .
. "Being an entrepreneur in the DMV offers so many opportunities. For one, there are so many opportunities to network and meet people who, like you, are driven to success and creating their dreams. Also, many entrepreneurs in this area are very connected with philanthropic causes, which enables you to help others as part of your business model. There are also many opportunities to mentor others and be mentored by successful people. There are also so many people from various countries, cultures and diverse ways of thinking, that it’s a great area for diversity of ideas, collaboration and creativity." - Thanks to Maimah
Do you have to eat a plant-based diet to be healthy? The answer is no. But, can you be healthy, strong, reduce the chances of suffering chronic diseases, curtail pollution in our planet and avoid unnecessary and cruel suffering to animals? The answer is a flagrant yes. At the end of the day, this is a decision backed by many fronts. Let me help you with some scientific arguments
📕We should not focus on studies that last 12 weeks to decide if a habit is healthy. We must know if what we do has any long-term effect. Eating plant-based has demonstrated in reliable, prospective studies to reduce chronic diseases and can prolong your disease-free life by almost 4 years. Plus, you get to be slimmer and look great on IG photos. Everybody wins (like)
📗If you are into sports, you have to sacrifice nothing. Vegan/Vegetarian diets can be designed to achieve a peak athletic status. Studies have shown that marathon runners who eat vegetarian diets have a good quality of life. This is what matters at the end
📘Our main cause of disability is not some theoretical nutritional deficiency, but cardiovascular disease. Our arteries seem to benefit the most from our food choices. Studies have shown that the more plant protein we eat, the less artery-toxic substances (homocysteine) we accumulate in our blood
📙What you eat matter to you and other people. A healthy vegetarian diet can mitigate 40% production of green house pollution on our planet. Healthy for you, your neighbor and for Mother Earth
📌Nobody is perfect. I get it. I am certainly not. But this is not about perfection, but action. Think about it, if we can be healthy and strong, why do we have to kill millions of animals in the pursuit of something that can be achieved by eating differently? It makes no sense, right?

In recognition of Martin Luther King Jr day, we are honored to spotlight an incredible historian from Maryland. Nastassia’s devoted narratives about the African American experience is an absolute asset in historical interpretation. We want to sincerely thank her for the research and knowledge she shares at many events and re-enactments.
If you’re in the area please stop by @historiclondontown on January 26th for the Immersion Weekend event and join Nastassia as she retells the story of Maryland’s enslaved in first person interpretation. She also has a brilliant Facebook page and blog that documents her journey as a historical interpreter.
Read her short biography about her many accomplishments on our FB page! 📸 Credit Wilson Freeman #strength#women#africanamerican#history#americanrevolution#maryland#photography#narrative#historicalinterpretation#americanhistory
“Guardian Ranger” Yes, the federal government is shut down, and a lot of people are working without pay. In this brutal cold, NPS law enforcement is STILL coming to work....and keeping an eye on that new baby. God bless these folks for showing up for a difficult job!! You all are so appreciated!! ****Don’t anyone DARE say they are sitting on their butts staring at horses. They know where this bunch is...often back in the marsh all day....and they watch them when needed and when not out on calls. I know they assisted at least one stuck vehicle on the OSV beach and at least one traffic stop in the time I was there. **** New mom N2BHS-M Susi Solé and 10-day-old filly N2BHS-MR.
