Because compiling data is a thing that I do sometimes, and making things pretty is a thing I do all the time, here’s a nerdy Pokémon infographic breaking down the distribution of types among the different generations.
Interestingly: • Water is far and away the most common type, yet the generation that added the most new Pokémon (Gen V) has the lowest number of water Pokémon. • Gen I has half of all poison Pokémon. HALF. The next closest percentage is 30% of all dark Pokémon in Gen V. • Every generation - even tiny little Gen VI - has the most of at least one type (some are tied for most).
Hair loss sparked Madam C.J. Walker (born Sarah Breedlove) to develop a line of hair-care products just for African-American women in the early 1900s — and her entrepreneurial efforts led her to become one of the first female self-made millionaires in America.
American Vogue made history with its August 1974 cover featuring Beverly Johnson, who was the first Black woman to hold the honor. Johnson told NPR of the moment: “I realized that this was a huge responsibility that was placed on my shoulders as a way of really breaking the color barrier in the fashion industry.”
Tracey “Africa” Norman was the first Black transgender model to land a major cosmetics campaign. In the mid-1970s, she snagged a contract with hair color brand Clairol. Norman didn’t disclose that she was transgender at the time out of fear it might damage her career.
In 1993, Lisa Price began developing hair and skin products out of her Brooklyn kitchen alongside her mother Carol. The now wildly popular brand, Carol’s Daughter, caters especially to women with natural, curly textures.
Hey guys, since my previous post on Morning Routines was very well received, I decided to make a night version. This small infographic thingy outlines the things I do at night to prep myself for rest, as well as some other things you could try to ensure you get a good night’s sleep. Hope this helps, and don’t hesitate to drop me an ask if you have any questions!
P.S. the typefaces used are Bromello and Montserrat
Snacks make the world go ‘round, and coincidentally they also help your body get the most out of your workouts. Try adding these foods to your routine when you’re hitting the gym.
Pre-workout: It’s important to get some carb-heavy snacks in before a workout. That way, you have the reserves on hand to get the most out of your exercises.
During workout: #1 is to stay hydrated! If you’re a CFer, you know that your salt intake might need to be higher on days you work out. When your workout is a little bit longer, have a protein bar handy for extra energy—just in case.
Post-workout: Your body is in recovery mode, so feed your hunger with high protein foods like yogurt or hummus, as well as nutrient-rich snacks like walnuts or a fruit smoothie.
Don’t hit the gym before talking to your doctor about strenuous exercise. It’s key to stick to what works for your body!
