“Malo periculosam, libertatem quam quietam servitutem.”
(I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery)

On July 4, 1776, the same day that independence from Great Britain was declared by the thirteen states, the Continental Congress named the first committee to design a Great Seal, or national emblem, for the country.
The United States needed an official symbol of sovereignty to formalize and seal international treaties and transactions.
It took six years, three committees, and the contributions of fourteen men before the Congress finally accepted a design in 1782.
Tottenham Court Road Y.M.C.A•
The Young Men’s Christian Association was founded on the 6th June 1844 in a drapers store in St.Pauls Churchyard, by George Williams. They held premesis on nearby Ludgate Hill and by 1851 there were YMCAs worldwide. In 1880 the London Association moved to Covent Garden and then to Great Russel Street/Tottenham Court Road, where in 1912 it built a magnificent domed Edwardian H.Q. This was demolished in 1971 and replaced the present brutalist building by Elsworth Sykes Partnership.
Hated by many and subject to many attempts to soften its appearance, it’s now loved and hopefully won’t be going anywhere...
💥 Life Cycle Of A Bruise ⭐️
📚 “Bruising is our body's normal and natural reaction to injury. Babies and children, when they're finding their way in the world and working out how their bodies work - tend to get more bruises than you'd imagine. It's normal to worry about our children when they seem to bruise readily” .
. ⭐️ “Bruises can be all the colours of the rainbow, with a range of shapes and patterns. While we traditionally think of a bruise as being a small black bruise there are other types of bruising”.
. 👍🏼 “The life cycle of a bruise:
When the skin receives a blow, it'll bruise when the blood vessels break and the blood leaks out leaving a red, purple or black mark on the skin. Bruises can be flat, or slightly raised, depending on the amount of blood that leaks out. Over the next day or two the bruise will change colour and take on a bluish hue. By around day six, the haemoglobin will break down and the area will start to heal, taking on a greenish hue as it does so. When the bruise turns yellow or brown, around 8 or 9 days in, it's a sign that the bruise is in its final stages as the body reabsorbs the blood.”
💡 “Most bruises are simply a sign that we've hurt ourselves and are nothing to worry about. However, if you're ever concerned, it's always a good idea to seek medical advice.”
