  • Street Kid Approaches Car And Begs For Money, Bursts Into Tears When He Sees Woman Inside

    It’s easy to get caught up in our own needs without thinking of other people, especially when we’re caught up in our own problems. Still, whenever we can step out of our own perspective and help others, amazing things can happen. Consider the story of John Thuo, a homeless boy living in Nairobi, Kenya whose life changed after a chance encounter with an older woman.

    Just like any other day, Thuo woke up and started approaching cars stopped in traffic to ask for money. In the process, he came upon a woman named Gladys Kamande. Unbeknownst to Thuo, 32-year-old Kamande was struggling with some serious issues of her own. As a result of collapsed lungs, Kamande needed to rely on machines to breathe normally, carrying an oxygen concentrator, a generator and oxygen cylinders with her at all times. As if that wasn’t enough, Kamande had been through 12 surgeries for her medical issues, one of which damaged her optical nerve rendering her blind.

    Upon asking her for money, Thuo asked what all the machinery was for and heard her whole story. After she told him everything, Thuo was moved to tears, crying even harder after realizing he couldn’t help her.

    Instead, Thuo prayed with the woman and gave her all the money he had in his pockets to help her get the treatment she needed. In the process, an onlooker saw the exchange between Thuo and Kamande and took a picture, posting it to Facebook.

    As always, it’s hard to underestimate the power of the internet. As the story went viral, online strangers were able to raise more than three million Kenyan shillings in only four days for Kamande’s surgeries (which is the equivalent of approximately $29,000). While that alone would be enough to make the story remarkable, Kamande was also able to help Thuo as a result as well—though you’ll have to read the whole story for yourself to find out how.

    The bond between Thuo and Kamande is an inspiration to us all and shows again just how powerful and effective empathy can be. When we open up to others and show compassion regardless of the problems we’re going through, incredible things can happen. In this case, two people who felt hopeless were able to save one another through a moment of connection—with a little help from the internet, of course. Check out the entire heartwarming story here.

  • How To Treat Kidney Stone With Ginger

     

    Ginger is the ultimate natural medicine. Not only is it delicious, but it's anti-inflammatory, anti-parasitic, anti-viral, and anti-bacterial in nature. It's known to improve digestive discomfort and can even improve immunity and make your cardiovascular system healthier. I don't use the term "superfood" lightly, but this one is it.

    Ginger is also rich in vitamin C, magnesium, and other minerals, making it a great food to add to your diet for overall health

    .

     

    Hot ginger tea doesn't just beat the cold winter mornings, but can fight infection, enhance the immune system, fight off colds and other viruses, improve circulation, relieve pain, reduce the risk of kidney stones and give your body the nutrients it needs to make sure the liver works like it should. Here's how to make my famous ginger tea.

     

    You will need:

      • 1 tablespoon of raw, organic, unfiltered honey.

     

      • 1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger.

     

      • 1/4 teaspoon of ground turmeric.

     

      • 1/4 cup of coconut milk.

     

      • 1 cup of purified water.

    Instructions:

      1. Boil the water.
      1. Once boiling, add ginger and turmeric. Simmer for 10 minutes.
      1. Add milk.
      1. Strain into a cup.

    From here, you can steep another teabag if you like. The tea stands well on its own though.

  • Donald Trump breaks White House tradition by not holding Eid dinner

     

    The president is the first leader not to host a dinner for nearly two decades after the tradition was started by Bill Clinton and then continued by George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

    Instead, the Republican chose to release a statement wishing ‘warm greetings’ to those celebrating Eid. In a joint statement with the First Lady, Melania, he said: ‘Muslims in the United States joined those around the world during the holy month of Ramadan to focus on acts of faith and charity.#

    ‘Now, as they commemorate Eid with family and friends, they carry on the tradition of helping neighbours and breaking bread with people from all walks of life.’

    The dinners were traditionally attended by prominent members of the Muslim community, members of Congress and diplomats from Muslim countries.
    Secretary of State Rex Tillerson also rejected a request from the State Department’s Office of Religion and Global Affairs to host a reception marking Eid, according to CNN.

  • Meet the artist behind Beyonce's pregnancy photo - BBC

    Meet the artist behind Beyonce's pregnancy photo - BBC

    Beyonce's pregnancy announcement portrait is now the most liked Instagram post of all time. But who is the artist behind the image? The photo of Beyonce wearing a veil and cradling her stomach has now been liked over eight million times.

    This might not be a big deal for the 35-year-old singer. But it's a huge accomplishment for Awol Erizku, the artist who took the famous photo - and the entire series of pregnancy photos that Beyonce has since uploaded to her website.

    Here are five things you should know about him.

    Who is he?

    Born in Ethiopia, 28-year-old Awol grew up in the South Bronx area of New York. In 2014, he graduated from Yale University with a masters in fine art and his work often fuses photography, video installations and sculpture. And while he's now responsible for the most liked picture on Instagram, Awol has a humble following on his own social media accounts.

    He has a strange way of using social media to share his work

    If you've tried to find more of his work on Instagram after seeing his portrait of Beyonce, you probably know already that his page is closed for business. The 28-year-old treats his Instagram account like an art gallery, where he hosts Instagram-only art shows. For example, his account has detail about "gallery" opening hours: timings for when his feed is opened up for public viewing.

    He combines his art with music

    With each of his exhibitions, Awol has released what he calls a conceptual mixtape. Think of this as a kind of soundtrack to the artist's latest creations. One of Awol's most played mixes was released alongside a film and photo project called Serendipity, which was a response to the Black Lives Matter movement in America.
