Memes, ๐Ÿค–, and Aids: The Black Panther Party provided medical services as well as many needed services for African American communities... Here is a photo of a Black Panther Ambulance (1969) AMBULANCE The Black Panther Party's People's Free Ambulance Service provides free, rapid transportation for sick or injured people without time-consuming checks into the patients' financial status or means. . Adequate ambulance service has long been a problem in Black communities across this country. Hospitals either blanketly refuse to send their ambulances into Black communities or charge exorbitant prices if they do offer the service. The People's Free Ambulance Service operates with at least one ambu lance on a twenty-four-hour emergency basis, and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on a nonemergency or convalescent basis. The services provided by this survival program are totally free. People are transported to and from the hospital or doctor's office in a modern, comfortable ambulance by courteous, efficient, and knowledgeable attendants. The number of ambulances and other necessary equipment will vary with the size of the city to be serviced, but at least three to fo ur ambulances should be used in large metropolitan areas with sizable Black communities. Ambulances should contain oxygen equipment for those patients who may need it en route to the hospital; other health supplies such as first -aid kits; and most important, dispatch radio equipment so that the ambulance drivers can be in constant communication with headquarters. 1be radio equipment should be of the highest possible quality so that it will have minimal mechani cal failures. One or more nonemergency vehicles are used to transport the convales cent to the doctor; clinic, or hospital. The ambulance program operates from a central office or headquarters. โฌ‡โฌ‡โฌ‡

Just Do It, Memes, and Rave: Nike is Launching Pro Hijab' Line for Muslim Women blogged by @LoveRubyWoo @balleralert Nike is Launching 'Pro Hijab' Line for Muslim Women - blogged by @LoveRubyWoo โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Nike has come up with a brilliant new way to expand its brand as well as encourage women of all backgrounds to "Just Do It". Inspired by female Muslim Olympians Sarah Attar and Amna Al Haddad, the company is launching a high-performance hijab line for women everywhere. Nike's Pro Hijab is a high-performance hijab that is both breathable and lightweight, while also remaining opaque, in accordance with Islamic customs. In addition, the Pro Hijab is designed with stretch fit fabric so that it will not shift around during physical activity. Nike says the product idea was sparked after Muslim athletes complained about the discomfort of wearing a traditional hijab while playing sports. The Pro Hijab, which took approximately thirteen months to design, is set to be released in spring of 2018. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Nike has already tested the product out on a number of female Muslim athletes, including Emirati figure skater Zahra Lari, who has given the product a rave review. "I was thrilled and a bit emotional to see Nike prototyping a Hijab," Lari said in a statement. "I've tried so many different hijabs for performance, and so few of them actually work for me. But once I put it on and took it for a spin on the ice, I was blown away by the fit and the light weight." โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Nike's latest product reflects what the company says is a shift in Islamic culture, where more Muslim women are becoming active and playing sports. With the launch of the Pro Hijab next year, the company hopes that women all over the world will be able to participate in and embrace a more dynamic lifestyle.
