EATING FRUIT...

It's long but very informative
� We all think eating fruits means just buying fruits, cutting it and just popping it into our mouths. It's not as easy as you think. It's important to know how and when to eat.� What is the correct way of eating fruits?
� IT MEANS NOT EATING FRUITS AFTER YOUR MEALS! * FRUITS SHOULD BE EATEN ON AN EMPTY STOMACH.
� If you eat fruit like that, it will play a major role to detoxify your system, supplying you with a great deal of energy for weight loss and other life activities.
� FRUIT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT FOOD. Let's say you eat two slices of bread and then a slice of fruit. The slice of fruit is ready to go straight through the stomach into the intestines, but it is prevented from doing so.
� In the meantime the whole meal rots and ferments and turns to acid. The minute the fruit comes into contact with the food in the stomach and digestive juices, the entire mass of food begins to spoil.....
� So please eat your fruits on an empty stomach or before your meals! You have heard people complaining — every time I eat watermelon I burp, when I eat durian my stomach bloats up, when I eat a banana I feel like running to the toilet, etc — actually all this will not arise if you eat the fruit on an empty stomach. The fruit mixes with the putrefying other food and produces gas and hence you will bloat!
� Graying hair, balding, nervous outburst, and dark circles under the eyes all these will NOT happen if you take fruits on an empty stomach.
� There is no such thing as some fruits, like orange and lemon are acidic, because all fruits become alkaline in our body, according to Dr. Herbert Shelton who did research on this matter. If you have mastered the correct way of eating fruits, you have the Secret of beauty, longevity, health, energy, happiness and normal weight.
� When you need to drink fruit juice - drink only fresh fruit juice, NOT from the cans. Don't even drink juice that has been heated up. Don't eat cooked fruits because you don't get the nutrients at all. You only get to taste. Cooking destroys all the vitamins.
� But eating a whole fruit is better than drinking the juice. If you should drink the juice, drink it mouthful by mouthful slowly, because you must let it mix with your saliva before swallowing it. You can go on a 3-day fruit fast to cleanse your body. Just eat fruits and drink fruit juice throughout the 3 days and you will be surprised when your friends tell you how radiant you look!
KIWI: Tiny but mighty. This is a good source of potassium, magnesium, vitamin E & fiber. Its vitamin C content is twice that of an orange..
APPLE: An apple a day keeps the doctor away? Although an apple has a low vitamin C content, it has antioxidants & flavonoids which enhances the activity of vitamin C thereby helping to lower the risks of colon cancer, heart attack & stroke.
STRAWBERRY: Protective Fruit. Strawberries have the highest total antioxidant power among major fruits & protect the body from cancer-causing, blood vessel-clogging free radicals.
ORANGE : Sweetest medicine.. Taking 2-4 oranges a day may help keep colds away, lower cholesterol, prevent & dissolve kidney stones as well as lessens the risk of colon cancer.
WATERMELON: Coolest thirst quencher. Composed of 92% water, it is also packed with a giant dose of glutathione, which helps boost our immune system. They are also a key source of lycopene — the cancer fighting oxidant. Other nutrients found in watermelon are vitamin C & Potassium.
GUAVA & PAPAYA: Top awards for vitamin C. They are the clear winners for their high vitamin C content.. Guava is also rich in fiber, which helps prevent constipation. Papaya is rich in carotene; this is good for your eyes.
� Drinking Cold water after a meal = Cancer! Can u believe this?? For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you. It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion... Once this 'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer... It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.
� A serious note about heart attacks HEART ATTACK PROCEDURE': (THIS IS NOT A JOKE!) Women should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting. Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line. You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack. Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms.. Sixty percent of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up. Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let's be careful and be aware. The more we know the better chance we could survive. �

Nowruz


Nowruz

Nowruz is the traditional Iranian festival of spring which starts at the exact moment of the vernal equinox, commencing the start of the spring. It is considered as the start of the New Year among Iranians. The name comes from Avestan meaning "new day/daylight". Noruz is celebrated March 20/21 each year, at the time the sun enters Aries.
Noruz has been celebrated for at least 3,000 years and is deeply rooted in the rituals and traditions of the Zoroastrian religion. Today the festival of Noruz is celebrated in Iran, Iraq, India, Afghanistan, Tajikestan, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan.
The Zoroastrian Parsis of India celebrate Noruz twice, firstly in common with their Iranian brethren on the vernal equinox as Jamshedi Navroz (also referred to as the Fasli New Year) and secondly on a day in July or August, depending upon whether they follow the Kadmi or the Shahenshahi calendar. This is because the practice of intercalation in the Zoroastrian calendar was lost on their arrival in India. The Kadmi New Year always precedes the Shahenshahi New Year by 30 days. In 2005, Noruz is celebrated on August 20 (Shahenshahi).
The Baha'i Faith, a religion with its origin in Iran, celebrates this day (spelling it "Naw Ruz") as a religious holiday marking not only the new year according to the Baha'i calendar, but the end of their Nineteen Day Fast. Persian Baha'is still observe many Iranian customs associated with it, but Bahai's all over the world celebrate it as a festive day, according to local custom. American Baha'i communities, for example, may have a potluck dinner, along with prayers and readings from Baha'i scripture. While Naw Ruz, according to scripture, begins on the vernal equinox, Baha'is currently celebrate it on March 21, regardless of what day the equinox falls. Baha'is are required to suspend work and school in observance.
Although the Persian Calendar is very precise about the very moment of turn of the new year, Noruz itself is by definition the very first calendar day of the year, regardless of when the natural turn of the year happens. For instance, in some years, the actual natural moment of turn of the year could happen before the midnight of the first calendar day, but the calendar still starts at 00:00 hours for 24 hours, and those 24 hours constitue the Noruz. Iranians typically observe the exact moment of the turn of the year.

History of Noruz

The name of Noruz does not occur until the second century AD in any Persian records. We have reasons to believe that the celebration is much older than that date and was surely celebrated by the people and royalty during the Achaemenid times (555-330 BC). It has often been suggested that the famous Persepolis Complex, or at least the palace of Apadana and Hundred Columns Hall, were built for the specific purpose of celebrating Noruz. However, no mention of the name of Noruz exists in any Achaemenid inscription.
Our oldest records of Noruz go back to the Arsacid/Parthian times (247 BC-224 AD). There are specific references to the celebration of Noruz during the reign of Arsacid Emperor Vologases I (51-78 AD). Unfortunately, the lack of any substantial records about the reign of the Arsacids leaves us with little to explore about the details of Noruz during their times.
After the accession of Ardashir I Pabakan, the founder of the Sasanian Dynasty (224 AD), consistent data for the celebration of Noruz were recorded.
Throughout the Sasanian era (224-650 AD), Noruz was celebrated as the most prominent ritual during the year. Most royal traditions of Noruz such as yearly common audiences, cash gifts, and pardon of prisoners, were established during the Sasanian era and they persisted unchanged until the modern times.
Noruz, along with Sadeh that is celebrated in mid-winter, were the two pre-Islamic celebrations that survived in the Islamic society after 650 AD.
Other celebrations such Gahanbar and Mehragan were eventually side-lined or were only followed by the Zoroastrians who carried them as far as India. Noruz, however, was most honoured even by the early founders of Islam.
There are records of the Four Great Caliphs presiding over Noruz celebrations, and during the Abbasid era, it was adopted as the main royal holiday.
Following the demise of the Caliphate and re-emergence of Persian dynasties such as the Samanids and Buyids, Noruz was elevated into an even more important event. The Buyids revived the ancient traditions of Sasanian times and restored many smaller celebrations that had been eliminated by the Caliphate. Even the Turkish and Mongol invaders of Iran did not attempt to abolish Noruz in favor of any other celebration. Thus, Noruz remained as the main celebration in the Persian lands by both the officials and the people.


Celebrations

During the Noruz holidays people are expected to pay house visits to one another (mostly limited to families, friends and neighbours) in the form of short house visits and the other side will also pay you a visit during the holidays before the 13th day of the spring.
Typically, on the first day of Noruz, family members gather around the table, with the Haft Seen on the table or set next to it, and await the exact moment of the arrival of the spring. At that time gifts are exchanged. Later in the day, on the very first day, the first house visits are paid to the most senior family members.
Typically, the youngers visit the elders first, and the elders return their visit later. The visits naturally have to be relatively short, otherwise one will not be able to visit everybody on their list. Every family announces in advance to their relatives and friends which days of the holidays are their reception days.
A visit generally lasts around 30 minutes, where you often run into other visiting relatives and friends who happen to be paying a visit to the same house at that time. Because of the house visits, you make sure you have a sufficient supply of pastry, cookies, fresh and dried fruits and special nuts on hand, as you typically serve your visitors with these items plus tea or syrup.
Many Iranians will throw large Noruz parties in a central location as a way of dealing with the long distances between groups of friends and family.
Some Noruz celebrants believe that whatever a person does on Noruz will affect the rest of the year. So, if a person is warm and kind to their relatives, friends and neighbors on Noruz, then the new year will be a good one. On the other hand, if there are fights and disagreements, the year will be a bad one. Also, many people do a significant amount of "Spring Cleaning" prior to Noruz to rid the house of last year's dirt and germs in preparation for a good new year.
One tradition that may not be very widespread (that is, it may belong to only a few families) is to place something sweet, such as honey or candy, in a safe place outside overnight. On the first morning of the new year, the first person up brings the sweet stuff into the house as another means of attaining a good new year.
The traditional herald of the Noruz season is called Haji Pirooz, or Hadji Firuz. He symbolizes the rebirth of the Sumerian god of sacrifice, Domuzi, who was killed at the end of each year and reborn at the beginning of the New Year. Wearing black make up and a red costume, Haji Pirooz sings and dances through the streets with tambourines and trumpets spreading good cheer and the news of the coming New Year.
The thirteenth day of the New Year festival is called Sizdah Bedar (meaning "thirteen outdoors"). It often falls on or very close to April Fool's Day, as it is celebrated in some countries. People go out in the nature in groups and spend all day outdoors in the nature in form of family picnics. It is a day of festivity in the nature, where children play and music and dancing is abundant. On this day, people throw their sabzeh away in the nature as a symbolic act of making the nature greener, and to dispose of the bad luck that the sprouts are said to have been collecting from the household.
The thirteenth day celebrations, Seezdah Bedar, stem from the belief of the ancient Persians that the twelve constellations in the Zodiac controlled the months of the year, and each ruled the earth for a thousand years. At the end of which, the sky and the earth collapsed in chaos.
Hence, Noe-Rooz lasts twelve days and the thirteenth day represents the time of chaos when families put order aside and avoid the bad luck associated with the number thirteen by going outdoors and having picnics and parties.
At the end of the celebrations on this day, the sabzeh grown for the Haft Seen spread (which has symbolically collected all the sickness and bad luck) is thrown away into running water to exorcise the demons (divs) and evil eyes from the house hold. It is also customary for young single women to tie the leaves of the sabzeh, prior to discarding it, symbolizing their wish to be married before the next year's Seezdah Bedar. When tying the leaves, they whisper.

Maurice Tillet Real life Shrek
Maurice Tillet ( 1903?- August 4, 1954 ) was a professional wrestler in the early years of the entertainment- sport. Born in France , he was highly intelligent and could speak 14 languages. He was also a keen poet and was hoping to get into the acting business.. In his twenties, he developed acromegaly, a rare disease that causes bones to grow wildly and uncontrollably.

Psycho

Staring: Anthony Perkins, Janet Leigh, Vera Miles,
John Govin, Martin Balsam

Director: Alfred Hitchcock
Running time: 109 minute

Horror, Thriller

One of Hitchcock’s great masterpieces, which surely keep you on the edge of your seat while watching, is definitely psycho, a novel and memorable movie that you cannot forget easily.
This movie has been universally lauded by many movie watchers and detractors, like many of Hitchcock’s other movies.

The movie is intent upon stealing forty thousand by Marion crane, a young secretary who is in real need of money to save her romantic life with Sam Loomis. In the way running away from the city that she has been living and working for long, she decided to stay the night in a motel and totally unaware that her plan will be spoilt soon and she won’t see the tomorrow’s sunrise. Motel owner, Norman Bates, whose strange hobbies are taxidermy and talking about his mother, is actually the leading role and also his portrayal of a mama’s boy is really terrific and admirable.
Astonishingly the movie doesn’t lose its effect even knowing about the plot and what’s going to happen and its cliffhanger ending can surprise anyone.
It’s a gripping movie which plays on your sympathy and incredibly makes you feel sorry for both the murderer and the victim who is guilty of stealing money it also keeps you in suspense and it’s very intriguing.

Chicken soup for the mother's soul

Jack Confield, Mark Victor Hanson,
Jennifer Read Hawthorne, Marci Shimoff
It’s a book with 101 moving short stories that commemorate the pleasure of motherhood and makes you laugh, chuckle and cry. It has ten chapters with appropriate titles like miracles, a mother guiding hand, grandma’s love and etc.
Skilled speakers spoke to thousand of women the world over about their success , personal growth and self development to publish the book.
These short stories are gathered to mark the great moments of motherhood and will go down well with mothers of all ages.
The book has been lauded by many readers and it’s full of touching, compelling and page turner short stories that you can finish each in a short time and it’s a good idea to have the book in your bag always, although when you start, one is never enough and you will at least read two or three stories.
Being based on true stories makes some of the stories very evocative that will definitely call up some memories and also reading about other people’s adventures and mishaps during their parenthood makes the readers realize that many wonderful things had also happened to them, as the stories are not very heavy going the reader will go into them very easily.
You will probably find most stories gripping and dazzling and appreciate your own mother more and more after reading this book.
I recommend you read it and also give it to your mother to read, and then she might feel much better about her own kids.

Classic OR Modern Architecture

It's not an advertisment

why quite everyone likes McDonald's even the fats.

McDonald's, the largest fast food chain in the world and the brand most associated with the term "fast food," was founded as a barbecue drive-in in 1940 by Dick and Mac McDonald. After discovering that most of their profits came from hamburgers, the brothers closed their restaurant for three months and reopened it in 1948 as a walk-up stand offering a simple menu of hamburgers, French fries, milkshakes, coffee, and Coca-Cola, served in disposable paper wrapping. As a result, they were able to produce hamburgers and fries constantly, without waiting for customer orders, and could serve them immediately; hamburgers cost 15 cents, about half the price at a typical diner. Their streamlined production method, which they named the "Speedee Service System" was influenced by the production line innovations of Henry Ford. The McDonalds' stand was the milkshake machine company's biggest customer and a milkshake salesman named Ray Kroc traveled to California to discover the secret to their high-volume burger-and-shake operation. Kroc thought he could expand their concept, eventually buying the McDonalds' operation outright in 1961 with the goal of making cheap, ready-to-go hamburgers, french fries and milkshakes a nationwide business.
Kroc was the mastermind behind the rise of McDonald's as a national chain. The first part of his plan was to promote cleanliness in his restaurants. Kroc often took part at his own
Des Plaines, Illinois, outlet by hosing down the garbage cans and scraping gum off the cement. Kroc also added great swaths of glass which enabled the customer to view the food preparation. This was very important to the American public which became quite germ conscious. His motto "If you have time to lean you have time to clean" can still be heard in the ears of crew workers today. A clean atmosphere was only part of Kroc's grander plan which separated McDonald's from the rest of the competition and attributed to their great success. Kroc envisioned making his restaurants appeal to families of suburbs

Sometimes the best adventures are in your own back yard.

To make a holiday of lifetime you don't need to have a holiday abroad. On a journey from Tehran (capital city) to north east, we past through a lot of cities, as we traveled by car, it gave us the freedom to go as we pleased, so we drifted along North, Ardebil, and Tabriz.
Passing through Rasht, I enjoyed watching the Caspian sea and the coniferous forest and also smelling the rich fragrance of rice planted in flooded paddy fields and feel happy getting back to nature , but we were not for unwinding trips, we didn't spend a long time there.
We had a night stopover in Astara and as we preferred a self-catering accommodation, we stayed the night in a nice chalet. The next morning, I spent some hours wandering around the Bazaar, because a friend, who had had a journey to Astara one week before our journey, had recommended me. Unfortunately I spent a fortune on fake make up stuffs, which made me feel really naïve and angry with the unscrupulous shopkeeper.
Unfortunately Ardebil was as scorching as Tehran, which we really didn't expect. So after sightseeing we left there hopping have a cooler time in the historic spa town, Sarein, All I saw there were bathrooms, health spas, and shops. Most of the shops were selling traditional yoghurt soup which just contained yoghurt, leek, chickpea, and rice but worth to try, because it was a complete new taste for me, but again I was disappointed with unprincipled and opportunistic landlords who wanted to take advantages of full hotels and inns and overcharge tourists and travelers by accommodation prices, a dirty room with no facility cost about fifty five dollars per night!
Tabriz Bazaar's one of the oldest and biggest traditional bazaars with the aroma of herbal remedies in most parts, which attracts a lot of tourists. The city had a highly qualified tourism sector which helped us visit it without any problem and also obliging people who really liked to help tourists know the city more and fined ancient monuments easily.
If I have the chance of getting around these cities once more, I like to have a trip to Tabriz and go sightseeing.

The red houses village

Have you ever been in red houses village? A village might always not remind us of green color and grass smell, in a trip to Abyaneh, color was the first thing that attracted my attention. All the houses and walls even the temples were red, because the soil contained iron. One of seventh incredible Iran's villages with people in different colored costumes that still today dress and make their houses like their ancestors to preserve their traditions. A 22 kilometer narrow paved road from Kashan to Abyaneh, every kilometer far from the city we were, tens of kilometers closer to the village, tranquility and & we were. It was quite in the middle of spring and despite the fact that in Tehran we hadn't got much rain, there had been just two or three dry days, and also the day we were there was a stunning rainy day, in the blink of a eye it turned to a sunny day and a fantastic rainbow which I'd been waiting to see for more than fifteen years in Tehran's sky made a memorable day for me. A gallant and placid man with some bread in his hand who treated us with great amiability was the first villager that I saw there, without knowing us, he started talking about the village and showing us around, of course after offering bread, after a short walk we saw some women with ruddy cheeks selling homemade sundried fruit, fruit paste and special traditional scarves which they all wearing the same, to respect them we bought some delicious sundried fruit. Another different surprising thing is about different occasions , specially Ashora, when they all gather in the village even their young children , who are mostly educated and live or study in cities , also wear costumes and have a very special mourning for imam Hussein , which attracts a lot of tourists who are seeking something out of ordinary . If I go there once more, I'd like to be there in fall, to see the whole village even the trees in warm colors. I'd never forget its friendly and extrovert people, fantastic views, and the breezy weather
