Films that respect the viewers


There are some films that we can watch dozens of times and each time discover a new point and enjoy watching it; films made by directors such as Altman, Kubrick, Bergman,..are worth to watch dozens of times. But on the other hand, there are some films that are difficult to watch even for one time without feeling insulted or frustrated by wasting the time.

Is a vegetarian diet healthy?

A balanced diet is very important for our health because our body's organs and tissues need proper and balanced nutrition that consists of fruits, vegetables, grains, dairy, oils and proteins. Meats are primary source of protein which is essential for brain development. Atleast two times a week (four times  a week is ideal ) we should include meats in our diet and hardly anything else can be a proper alternative.

Traveling light

Nothing like carrying heavy suitcases can ruin the interesting experience of traveling. The scene that we all have seen in the airports or train stations: people struggling to carry heavy luggages. The best way is to travel with just a light handbag if you can. It will be the removal of an unnecessary burden and  just focusing on the experience of traveling.

A simple test for friendship

One true friend worths more than one thousand acquaintances. There is one simple test to evaluate the sincerity and truthfulness of friends, relatives or even siblings: simply ask them a small favor. If they are sincere, they do it without hesitation. If they are not sincere but polite, they try to make some sort of excuse and avoid any possible hard feeling. And finally if they are none of them, you won't hear from them soon!

Those girls who ran


Last month, some criminals kidnapped about 280 girls in a high school in Nigeria. The approximate 330 girls were more or less in the same cruel situation; 280 were kidnapped and 50 escaped. Those girls chose to escape by running and running as fast as they could. Their right decision at the right time saved them. Humiliation paralyzes the mind and kills the self-esteem. In the societies that girls are not treated fairly and humiliated; they lack the determination to do the right thing in the extreme situations. One of the brave girls who escaped, in the latest interview boasted that she has six brothers and she can run faster than all of them; her admirable quality saved her from the criminals who kidnapped the poor girls as easy targets in the society that tolerates these acts.

A writer's job


Gabriel Garcia Marquez passed away on Thursday. He was the most popular Spanish-language writer since Miguel de Cervantes. He won the Nobel prize for literature in 1982 for his novels and short stories.
Writing career is one of the most honest and fascinating job; the independent writers are their own boss. They do not take or give orders. They decide and think for themselves. Beautiful job, but there is no guarantee to generate income.

A happy moment


This joke made me laugh, I hope it brings a smile on your face:

"A lawyer's dog heads for a butcher shop and steals a roast. The butcher goes to the lawyer's office and asks, " if a dog running unleashed steals a piece of meat from my store, do I have the right to demand payment from the dog's owner?" The lawyer answers, "Absolutely." The butcher says, " then you owe me $9 because your dog stole a roast from me today." Without any objection, the lawyer writes a check for $9. The butcher leaves happily. 
Three days later, the butcher receives a bill from the lawyer: " $100 is due for the consultation!""

People and photography


Photography is so widely used; almost everyone regardless of age, education, experience or background can take pictures and enjoy the process. Last week while I was running I saw a very old and fragile man who was trying to take picture of a flower, his hands were shaking terribly and he was struggling over and over again. Finally he could take a less shaky picture; at that moment he had a triumphant smile and hopeful eyes. I was impressed and thinking how interesting and useful, the photography could be for so many people: a source of enjoyment and hope.
