Real to Reel : 5 inspiring women

Posted on Updated on

I am a big fan of Iconic Rosie the Riveter. I see the women who inspire me and I see “Rosie the Riveter” in each one of them. These Iconic females have proved the slogan, we can do it. They really did it. And not only did they become idols of many and immortals in the pages of history, great movies have been made on their true story and some of them are so inspiring that we watch it over and over again. This is the list of 5 finest movies (reels) based on real inspiring stories of women.

Real to Reel : 9 inspiring women

Real to Reel. 5 inspiring women zhwadevivre arohii

The Iron Lady

Meryl Streep doesn’t fail to Portray brilliantly the character of Margaret Thatcher, on whom this movie is based. Margaret Thatcher was the first woman to become the prime minister of Great Britain. In this movie, nostalgic Margaret, who now is old and dementia stricken reflects back on her life and remembers her past from young to old age. We can see how she struggled in the male dominated world of politics and what she sacrificed on her way to success. One of my favorite scenes from the movie is when she learns to correct her pitch and speak efficiently. Meryl Streep bagged Oscars for the Iron Lady.

Erin Brockovich

Erin Brockovich is based on a true story of an American woman with the same name. What’s the real life Erin has achieved is that, she filed a lawsuit against a company which was responsible for contamination of water by chromium. Which further caused serious health issues like cancer in people of that area. The notable thing about Erin was that she had no experience or proper education in Law and yet she fought and won against the wrong & powerful.

Zero Dark Thirty

When it comes to bravery and Patriotism, women are no less than a man. Zero Dark Thirty is based on an operation involving the CIA in tracking down Osama Bin Laden. During this operation, a fictional woman named Maya, who played CIA intelligence analyst an important role in the success of the operation. This movie created a lot of controversy and Lindsay Moran, the real life Maya (I would like to believe that) left CIA in 2003. She now is a freelance writer and is an author of a book, Blowing my cover.

Elizabeth

Queen Elizabeth was a survivor. Against all odds, she achieved perfection in being a Ruler. Her Journey to being a Monarch was not an easy one and hence, a movie based on the true life of the queen who reigned during the golden age, is a must watch for each and every woman.

13 Mind Blowing Body & Health facts

Posted on Updated on

Did you know, why Bad breath can be useful sometimes or if freckles were cancerous or may be the right age to go for nose Job? Well, this is a list of 13 mind blowing body and health facts that I am sure you will love to know.

13-facts

Health/Body Facts

Stomach blushes when you blush.

Well, when you blush your stomach lining goes all red (blushes) as well.

Here is what happens:

When one blushes, the sympathetic nerve causes an increase in a blood flow in our body. Enough blood through the veins turns the appearance of lining, red along with the face.

The Sympathetic nervous system is part of ANS or autonomic nervous system and its main function is the fight or flight response.

Stomach, body facts

Human, you were born dreamers.

Dreams are wonderful, aren’t they? I love dreaming, do you? Edgar Allan Poe said, “All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.” Dream within a dream might hold true if you believed in what Vaishnava dharma followers believe too. They believe that, “World is nothing but Lord Vishnu dreaming”. Anyways, before I get confused with all that, let me tell you a wonderful fact about dreaming and humans. We start dreaming when we are in Mother’s womb. So dreaming is always there. Even before birth. Cool, right? No wonder, I like to dream, I was a born dreamer.

 Sound In Silence

Hmm, some people complain that they hear the sound even in silence. I tried once to hear the Silence, which was mercilessly killed by the tick tock of my clock. That day, I concluded, sound is constant. And to support my conclusion, I also found an interesting fact about our incredible body and that is, our hair emits sound. Actually, all hair of all mammals & amphibians do. Can we hear it? Well a team of researchers at the Howard Hughes medical institute reported that, these tones emerging from normal ears, known as Spontaneous otoacoustic emissions (SOAEs) are sometimes so loud that they may be heard at a distance. You must read the source to know more.

 Streptomycin may turn you deaf.

Hearing, how important is it for you? To me, well, just like you, it is VERY important. And what if I say, if you have been taking streptomycin for long, you might suffer from hearing loss. Yes. Streptomycin is most likely to damage 8th cranial nerve which is an auditory nerve. Streptomycin is a broad spectrum antibiotic which is used to treat bacterial infections. WHO recommends a dosage of 15mg/kg twice or thrice daily for adults and children while for older patients over 60 years, maximum dose is about 500-750 mg daily.

 Water Lost through Expiration

Did you know that we exhale 400 ml of water every day through expiration? Well, well, well, now that you know, drink at least 2.5 ml of water per day.

 Halitosis is good.

Bad breath or halitosis is seriously repulsive. But sometimes, a bad breath can be a method to diagnose diabetes. If someone around you has a rotten apple smell coming from their mouth, they might be suffering from unbalanced insulin dependent diabetes.

You can’t go for Nose-Job before you are…

Nose Job or Rhinoplasty is common among women. Recently in 2014, a 15 year old teenager was allowed to go under knife to stop bullying in the UK. Well, was it right? I do not know that, but it sure was an exception, as nose Job is only allowed after 16 years. Our Nose, fully grows by then.

At what age Brain fully develops ?

Speaking of the Nose, up above, the master of all, THE BRAIN, well it takes just 5 years to grow by 90%. Cool, right?

brain

Egg and Saliva have one thing in common and i.e…

Egg and saliva. When I take their names together, one can assume I am talking about the saliva that comes in our mouths when delicious egg is served. But did you know, what do they have in common? They both contain an enzyme called Lysozyme, which is antibacterial in nature!

The Delhi Disease

Let me introduce you to a disease named after the capital of India. Yes, Delhi has a disease named after it and its called Delhi Boil which refers to ulcerative sore. Delhi Boil is also known as Balkan Boil, Baghdad boil, oriental sore etc. It is caused by a sand fly bite.

Are Freckles cancerous ?

Common among redheads, naturally occurring freckles are often confused with skin cancers. Of course they are normal and are caused by the focal increased melanin in keratinocytes.

why does Mouth go dry, post Brushing ?

Ever noticed what happens after brushing? If not, do notice next time you brush. Most of you would find dryness of mouth, post brushing. Well, it is because of Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, which most toothpastes contain (exceptions are sensodyne, GSK, aqua fresh etc.) SLS is included for their foaming action. You can guess why it is henceforth contraindicated in people with xerostomia.

Help WHO

WHO’s last year’s theme was Beat Diabetes. And this year, it is Depression: Let’s talk. WHO defines Depression as a common mental disorder, characterized by sadness, loss of interest or pleasure, feelings of guilt or low self-worth, disturbed sleep or appetite, feelings of tiredness, and poor concentration? (Source: http://www.who.int/topics/depression/en/) . The “let’s talk” campaign was launched on 10th October, 2016 and the goal of this campaign is that those who have depression should seek and get help. So let’s talk and encourage others to talk. Lets Fight Depression together.

well in this case, you may replace ‘man’ with ‘Caterpillar’. This is the most interesting story of determination and survival. You must have heard about Cuckoo and Crow story, how Cuckoo fools Crow by keeping their eggs in Crow’s nest, this is the similar story. Caterpillar are carried by worker ants who assume it to be one of its own and feed them till the day  Caterpillar becomes butterfly. These Butterflies are of the Maculinea species of large blue butterflies found across Europe and Asia. what happens exactly is that, Maculinea species take advantage of the ants acoustic signalling system. They mimic the sound made by the queen ant larvae to fool them and thus get all the special treatment by the worker ants.

Carpenter Ants

Speaking of Ants, you should know about this one strange ant who explodes on being attacked, spilling Toxins.

Hognose Play Dead

Hognose snakes are one canny species you will ever come across. Haha, you must have heard about Flight, fight or fear, well Hognose snake choose to fool. They will remain where they are when they sense danger and act dead. Funny, right?

My name is Opossum and I play Dead too

Opossum, marsupials can’t let the Hognose snake take all the credit of outsmarting the attackers. well, they play dead too, to survive. And additionally emits odor of dead as well.
