Having a knack for style seems to come naturally to Mohamed Malim. So, he took that skill and used it to create something bigger than himself – a fashion company focused on bringing awareness to the refugee humanitarian crisis.

While studying business at the University of St. Thomas, Malim, an Edina High School alum, realized he could combine his skills in business and passion for fashion into something that was meaningful to him and the greater community. He created Epimonia, a clothing company that places refugees at the forefront of its mission.

And Malim knows the experience of a refugee firsthand. In the late 1990s, his family fled Somalia due to war and violence in the region

Residents react to new mask-wearing rules Friday

For the first time in more than a year, Scot Sauer propped open the door to his laundromat Friday and didn’t immediately reach for a mask to pin behind his ears.

He greeted a customer with a smile on his face, telling the man he didn’t need his surgical mask but could wear it if he wanted to. The man shrugged and deposited his clothes into a machine at the back of the business.

“I’m super glad it’s finally ending,” Sauer, the owner of Surf N Suds laundromat in Newark, said Friday, after recalling the early days of the pandemic he spent shining an ultraviolet light on every corner of his store.

Scot Sauer, owner of Surf N Suds laundromat in Newark's Park N Shop shopping center on South Main Street, will not require masks in his business. "I'm super glad it's finally ending," Sauer said.

The high-end hangover cures you need to know

Cancel your plans for the afternoon after: this is a two-and-a-half-hour-long treatment that uses a combination of lymphatic drainage methods which dramatically reduce the dominant hangover symptoms of fluid retention, heavy legs, dehydration, and overall tiredness.

It’s a deeply regenerating process, and is tailored specifically to each client and their body’s needs, but the main focus is on toxin elimination, muscle toning, micro-circulation, circulation enhancement and deep relaxation. The treatment takes place in a dimly-lit room, and Pietro encourages me to drink at least a litre-and-a-half of PH-balanced water, which helps to flush out toxins throughout the treatment process.

This is a full-body activation using a combination of the ancient practice of Gua Sha, bamboo body tapping techniques, Zerona low-level laser and LED light therapy for the whole body.
