The American Elm used to be everywhere in the US. It was wide, fast-growing, tall enough to leave lines untouched. The elm was the symbol of endurance until it was nearly wiped out by Dutch Elm Disease. Introduced accidentally in the 1930s, the disease spread through beetles and over fifty years killed all of America’s elms — 100 million trees. A Dutch elm disease-resistant tree was introduced since the 1990s. Perhaps one day, American streets will be lined with elms again.

This is Eugen Sandow (1867 - 1925), the “father of modern bodybuilding.” He toured America where people were more interested in watching his bulging muscles than him lifting weights. He visited museums and measured the muscles of ancient Greek statues, then built his body to their exact proportions. He wrote a magazine on physical culture that first used the term bodybuilding. Sandow was even named “special instructor in physical culture” to King George V!

Seizure First Aid. 

Learn it. Share it. Know it. Use it. 

100% correct medical information on tumblr for once; also consider calling 911 if you don’t know how often the person has seizures and ESPECIALLY if the seizure has lasted 5 minutes or more (which is why the watch is critical)

This is so important!
