Summer Threatens Your Figure

It is widely believed that summer is excellent time for keeping fit and loosing weight. We have no appetite as we do not have to spend additional calories on warming. But nevertheless lots of girls mysteriously gain weight during summer. You should know the enemies of your figure and be careful with them – they are not as harmless as it may seem.

The first dangerous factor has very nice and sweet appearance and follows you all summer long. I mean ice-cream which is famous and widely loved for its cooling effect in the heat of the day. However, this product is the source of fats and carbohydrates, which are difficult to get rid of, especially if you leak ice-cream while lying on the beach and are not planning to perform any activity within next few hours. You can use the alternative to ice-cream – fruit ice. There are only twelve calories in one bar of fruit ice (if no sugar is added). Besides, this dessert is quite easy to prepare – just take some berries or fruit you like and blend them in the blender until they are smooth. Then pour this mess into pop molds and put them in freezer for about 5 hours.

What Does It Mean to Be a Human?

Today in my post I would like to share my admiration and interest in cyberpunk genre. To tell the truth I wasn’t keen on science fiction genre for a long period of time. I thought it was not for me and at that time I was more interested in detective fiction and thrillers. My favorite authors of these genres are Arthur Conan Doyle and Edgar Wallace. I still from time to time read some of their works and watch film adaptations based on their novels. Anyway I was very indifferent to any kind of fantasy, science fiction or similar genres. But once I changed my mind. The reason? Well, it was very banal. I watched Blade Runner (1982)by Ridley Scott. I’m sure you have watched this science fiction film. After viewing it I surfed the Internet trying to find out as much information as possible about the movie. The storyline is based on Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick.

Modern Artists – the Talent to Surprise

In all times of history the main aim of artists was to create something beautiful, unique, touching. Nowadays, when it seems that all wonderful things have been written, painted and staged, the art started to perform another mission – it tries to surprise us. People got used to all kinds of natural or artificial wonders; they have an access to all masterpieces of art but usually do not use this opportunity as they do not find time to visit even their local museum, not mentioning Tate gallery or Louvre. That’s why the idea nowadays plays the most significant role in the world of art instead of its realization. It is the concept of art and not the art itself that interests modern people most. It explains why modern artists resemble magicians who try to make something practically out of nothing, be it sand and the patterns on it or asphalt and 3D images.

Let’s take, for example, Christopher Boffoli and his collection called Disparity which represents the scenes from real life with the help of tiny finely made people and food. If you look at the pictures of this collection you will see tiny people sailing across the spilled milk, or another group riding their bikes through Banana Mountains, or an interesting miniature showing the funeral among the pile of rice. Boffoli says that he likes to be a creator of the universe and I think the fact that we can influence the fate of tiny people by drowning them in the milk or saving them is one of the reasons why we like these works. This collection is half art and half game, and this duality simply can not leave people indifferent.

Office conflict

Dear diary!

Today I had a very difficult day at my office due to several reasons. First of all I seem to have caught a cold and now I feel upset and broken. Dunno what to do, tomorrow I will have a very important meeting and I need to be safe and sound by that time…

But the main problem is in my conflict with my head of the office today. Alison Dunn is literally a genius chief. She is smart and strong. She’s very social and convivial but her stubbornness will, actually, drive me mad one day.

Today we had a quarrel. A big fight. The fact is that she doesn’t agree with my project on employee motivation. I have been working on it for many months and she seemed to be agree with my ideas. Today, when I presented it to the office, she was nearly throwing dirt on me. I need to re-construct everything in a week. In a week only!

These conflicts and stressful situations at work make me feel more than bad. I’m not too self-confident as it is and, to be frank, I’m a bit shy. I don’t know how to look in the eyes of all my colleagues who witnessed Alison shouting at me.

Himalayas As One Of the best Place to Visit

Himalayas

Himalayas

The magnificent mountains of Himalayas, the highest mountains in the world is a composite system of giant parallel situated ranges. They are expanding over the other forming a tremendous chain on board of Central and Southern Asia. Tightly held together and spreading over 2 thousand miles, they glitter with everlasting snow and frost. Translated from Sanskrit mean “abode of snow”. Even countless birds go round the mountains from the east being unable to go through them. This chain has 500 extraordinarily high mountain tops which are much higher than Mont Blanc and over 50 of them surpass the value of 7 000 m. 10 of these tremendous spurs are over 8 000 m. The topmost mountain end of the Earth is 8 848 m high and is called Everest (which is also knows as Chomolungma), the magnificent spur and the most noticeable mark on the map.
