Anorexia and Autism: Interconnection Found

Torso of anorexic young woman

It’s been a long time since anorexia has become the most threatening consequence of a body cult that is being severely propagandized these days. I am a skinny person and totally not one of those fat ladies that write furious posts about the harm of being skinny simply because they can’t lose weight. However, I realize that this is a symptom of our sick society that sets unachievable “beauty” goals that sensitive little girls just can’t hit without starving themselves to death.

Why Are There So Many Superstitious People Nowadays

Have you ever thought of the thing why do people believe in gods, Eastern calendars, horoscopes and all that stuff even now when the humankind has got closer to the answers to the universe riddles. More and more people tend to visit fortune tellers, astrologists and shamans and aim to influence and even change their fates. So why do people still take the superstitious beliefs as a truth and follow the fate signs.

“Spore” – Become a Creator of Evolution

The times when everybody was obsessed with “Sims” and enjoyed being the masters of virtual characters’ fates have come and passed, but the desire to play some game of this type has remained. To satisfy it, the Maxis Company has released “Spore” in 2008 – a game, which can be best described as a simulator of evolution.

“Spore” is, in fact, the simplest and the most understandable explanation of evolution you have ever learned. In this game the evolution is divided into five stages – cell, living being, tribe, civilization and space. Every stage presents a kind of attraction with its own simple rules. The easiest part is to grow a cell as it should be just fed with genetic material and observe the life of other creatures. Every portion of genes allows the cell to grow new limbs or means of protection – poison, spikes, and other surprises. When the cell leaves water environment, simple action appears as now you can eat or attract different ridiculous creatures inhabiting the land.

Gaming without Limits

Every game has its own rules which a gamer should obey if he wants to complete the mission. However, linear patterns and the necessity to follow a certain set of instructions always made me bored. I think that games should be used to escape from the reality with its severe laws rather than to accept some new restricted environment. That’s why I love open world games with their non-linear structure so much.

It is such a great fun to explore the world of the game, go wherever you like and do whatever you want. If you are new to this practice I recommend beginning with “Red Dead Redemption”. You will be provided with a horse and with freedom to explore endless fields inhabited by cowboys and Indians. Sometimes you are riding your horse just for sake of travel itself as you are not always bound to perform some mission and can spend your time on admiring picturesque virtual landscapes.

Animal Testing: Silent Sufferers

In the second century B. C. The ancient Roman doctor Claudius Galenus cut the central nerves of the pig in order to make clear how does the brain work. Since that moment the era of vivisection has started. Vivisection is the medical term of the Latin origin denoting “cutting the alive”.

Each year more that 150 millions of animals die during the experiments and tests. 30 % of all the tests are connected with the cosmetics and household chemical substances which are to be proven to present no danger to the human beings. Every day more than 500 big animals, such as monkeys, dogs, cats, rabbits die as the result of this endless testing. But if we take into consideration the small creatures such as rats, mice and hamsters the whole amount of the killed animal will go up more than hundreds of times. The animals are being burnt, they are subjected to electrical shock, their bones are being broken, they are contaminated with HIV, pox and lepra.

So in fact she is going to touch on the themes that seem to be significant and really important for many of us.
