Beautiful woman taking a breath

Stop for a second, and notice your breathing. Is it from your chest or is it from deep within your belly? You might discover you are taking shallow breaths from your chest. So what’s the big deal you may ask? Well…ask someone one who is asthmatic or has COPD. Breathing is life. It’s the thing you need and depend on! Breathing is the only body function that is both voluntary (you can control its speed and even stop it momentarily), and involuntary (automatic – you don’t have to do anything to make it happen). But typically, we are not taught the proper way to breathe and control this life force. Did you know that a baby does not breathe while it is in the womb? That the mother breathes for the fetus who gets essential oxygen through the umbilical cord? Yes! And the normal rate… [Read more]

If you aren’t watching History TV’s Vikings then first of all I am mad at you, second of all I am about to fix your life. Here, click this link (right here), watch the awesomeness, then come back and finish reading this article. Vikings is where it’s at. Now when I call Vikings “the most manliest show on TV” (right now), what I mean is that it takes us to a place of raw, unbridled, machismo. seriously, I had a buddy who sat through an episode with me and he swore off skinny jeans forever after seeing Rollo (character on the show) solo an entire army with a club… Dead serious. It is the kind of show that will make your feminist Twitter activist wife cringe since the characters aren’t written to fit neatly into a 2014 ideal. The setting is dirty, grimy, and absolutely… [Read more]

A friend of mine was recently diagnosed with colon cancer. He attributed his customary heartburn, constipation and the presence of blood in his stool as “normal” (to him), especially that hemorrhoids were common among his family members.  Well, a colonoscopy had this vibrant 40+ year-old saying “Oh shit!” Did you know you should be taking a look at your poop on a regular basis to keep an eye on your digestive heath? Stools are the end product of eating and digesting our meals, as the body rid itself of undigested foods and toxins.  Have you ever wondered what a “normal stool” should be like especially when we experience the hardness and looseness of this smelly necessity? Well, let’s take a look. Normal Stool should have the general color of cardboard, 4 to 8 inches long, and curved like a banana. It should leave your body… [Read more]

When CNN recently cornered Chairman of Gun Appreciation Day Larry Ward to ask him why his event conflicted with Martin Luther King Jr. Day he made the statement: “I think Martin Luther King, Jr. would agree with me if he were alive today that if African Americans had been given the right to keep and bear arms from day one of the country’s founding, perhaps slavery might not have been a chapter in our history.” While I want to chalk this statement up to being careless trolling, the teacher in me wishes to correct him and any others who think like him on this sentiment. First of all to say that arming the slaves would have prevented slavery is a careless fantasy at best and secondly I wish that people would treat the narrative of American black slavery with the same reverence they do with… [Read more]

You’ve heard the saying “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned” but if you want to apply a face to the saying you could easily use the face of Caterina Sforza. Here on The Hall we have 2 main historical sections in Badass of The Month and Hotties of History, Caterina is the first woman to occupy both. How To Raise A Tigress In 1462 Galeazzo Maria Sforza made love to the wife of a friend and got her pregnant, which lead to the birth of our darling Caterina. The scandal of her birth was no big deal at the time, as her Caterina’s father was a lord amongst man-whores and ran up inside any woman that he felt was hot (seriously). Ironically her birth coming from such a rebellious act as adultery was just a pre-cursor to her wickedly dynamic life. Unlike other… [Read more]

Rarely does a character in such a foreign time period as early America come alive as much as Bill ‘The Butcher’ Cutting from Gangs of New York. Bill was a brilliantly written and perfectly acted character played by Daniel Day Lewis. He was a flawed patriot, a warrior, a butcher (that was his actual day job) and a man of honor. Imagine all of these things mixed into a tall, lanky, one-eyed panther of a man and you have one dangerously complex sunovabitch. You can’t help but love the butcher; he was the living embodiment of flawed American patriotism that wants all outsiders to stay outside and everything coming to come in faster. Bill was the best part of Gangs of New York… no disrespect to Leo DiCaprio, Cameron Diaz and Liam Neeson. To understand Bill the Butcher you have to understand the time period… [Read more]
