Women and men are two opposites, two parallel, but at the same time, inseparable worlds.

 

Celebrating this holiday, let's not forget that admiration for a woman is not only admiration for her beauty and kindness, but, first of all, a tribute to a working woman, a manifestation of real concern for her.

 

When you think about what befell our women in the last centuries, it is both breathtaking and a lump comes to the throat: this is a great fate - great in happiness and great in tragedy. They survived the war, got an education, stood on a par with men in the construction of a new state and a new national economy, gave birth and, together with their country, brought up new generations of defenders and builders. Injustice sipped during the years of repression. And then they stood next to their husbands, brothers and sons during the years of the invasions and defended their state - at anti-aircraft guns, at the controls of aircraft, in medical battalions, at walkie-talkies and traffic controllers on military roads, in partisan detachments and underground, behind machine tools, in design bureaus , on the collective farm fields and so on.

 

The women's holiday began to "split up", Valentine's Day, Mother's Day appeared, they started talking about analogies even in the church calendar.

 

A special Mother's Day is good, but not as an alternative to Women's Day, but in addition to it. The understanding that we are talking about the one who is called to be a wife and mother, repeat this again, cannot and should not be removed from the image of a woman honored on Women's Day, from our, masculine, attitude towards her in principle. Especially from the attitude of our sons and grandchildren towards her, including when it comes to their peers.

 

Bemorepanda collected some interesting facts about International women's Day 2022.

 

 

1. In Portugal, women celebrate March 8 exclusively in the company of their friends, arranging bachelorette parties. Men are not allowed to attend such meetings.

 

2. The meaning of the holiday has changed more than once. Moreover, many women still understand the meaning of March 8 in different ways. But traditionally it was a celebration of the women's struggle for gender equality and the advancement of women around the world.

 

3. An analogue of March 8 was celebrated in ancient Rome. There is evidence that back then there was a special day when women received gifts, and slaves could rest.

 

4. In India, Women's Day is celebrated in October, and it lasts for about 10 days.

 

5. But in Japan, almost the entire month of March is devoted to holidays for women. This list includes not only International Women's Day, but also holidays of dolls, peach blossoms and girls.

 

6. The 2015 UN Women's Report found that despite women working longer than men, when taking into account both paid and unpaid work, women worldwide still earn on average 24% less than men. The largest wage gap, 33%, is found in South Asia.

 

__________________________________

It is unlikely that anyone will object to honoring believing women on the third Sunday after Easter, the Sunday of the Holy Myrrh-bearing Women, but one cannot fail to understand that the vector of the feeling honored on this holiday is different: from women to the One who came into our world in the form of a man. If we talk about the moment of the Gospel story, which most conveys the sacredness of the relationship to a woman and mother, then these are the words spoken by Jesus Christ at the dying moment, addressed to the Virgin Mary: "Woman! behold, your son." Note, not a brother in Christ, but a son; not a sister, but a mother. Moreover, we are talking about a personal call, not to all those of the students who were present at the execution, but only to one of them. And to Her - not about all of them, but only one of them, the one to whom Christ commanded a very important thing: to take Her into his house.

 

So on Women's Day on 8th March, let's hug all our wonderful grandmothers, mothers, wives, sisters, daughters, beloved women, and delight them with beautiful bouquets and gifts dear to their hearts! We will remember those of our dear women who are no longer with us, we will put flowers to their portrait. Congratulations to all our fair sex colleagues at work. Mentally - and whoever can, and personally - we will pay tribute to our truly great contemporaries.

 

And most importantly: when celebrating this "holiday of admiration for women", let's not forget that admiration for a woman is not only admiration for her beauty and kindness, but, first of all, a tribute to a working woman (by the way, they are not only in age, but also young), a woman-keeper of the hearth, a manifestation of real concern for her!

49. Compared to men, women have weaker ligaments, so they are more flexible and easier to sit on the splits, for example.

 

50. Women's skin is much thinner than men's, depletes collagen earlier, and is therefore more prone to wrinkles. In addition, this notorious collagen in the strong half of humanity has a higher density, so they look young much longer.

the-tallest-woman-is-from-turkey-she-is-24-years-old-and-over-215-meters

A woman from Turkey has been officially declared the tallest female person alive by Guinness World Records. The young woman is 24 years old and measures 215.16 centimeters. The height reached by Rumeysa Gelgi is the result of a condition called Weaver syndrome which, among other things, causes an accelerated growth.


"Every disadvantage can be turned into an advantage for you, so accept yourself as you are, be aware of your own potential and do everything you can, ”said the young woman, who is extremely active on social networks.


This is the second time that Gelgi has managed to break a world record, after being declared the tallest teenager alive in 2014. Since then, she has used this platform to support other people diagnosed with rare diseases, notes dpa , quoted by Agerpres. Most of the time, she uses a wheelchair, although she can walk with a frame.



"It is an honor to welcome Rumeysa back to the Book of Records. Her untamed spirit and pride in being noticed in the crowd is an inspiration, "said Craig Glenday, editor-in-chief of Guinness World Records.

"The category dedicated to the tallest woman in life is not one in which the protagonists change very often, so I am delighted to share this news with the world," he added.



The tallest man in the world, Sultan Kosen, is from the same country, Turkey. He was 251 centimeters tall when he was measured, in 2018.

The tallest woman alive was Zeng Jinlian, from China, with a height of 246.3 centimeters, measured before she died, in 1982.

100-best-baby-shower-gifts-for-new-moms-and-dads

The birth of a baby is one of the most joyful and exciting events in the life of every family. Bemorepanda will tell you what gifts would be appropriate on the day of meeting a newborn or baby shower.


Baby shower and discharge from the maternity hospital is always a great holiday: for a mother, it is a long-awaited return home, and reunion with her loved ones. For the relatives, it is the first acquaintance with a new family member. What holiday is complete without gifts? The father of the child, as well as relatives and friends of the young mother, will have to show all their imagination to please the hero of the occasion with something genuinely original and, at the same time, practical. To help readers in the complex matter of choosing, we have prepared more than a hundred ideas of what to give mom and newborn for the baby shower and discharge from the hospital.


What to give for a baby shower


Any gifts related to caring for a child are welcome, but you should not forget about the mother herself either because, in the postpartum period, a woman also needs support and care.


Gifts for mom


1. Baby monitor


A compact electronic device makes it possible to look after a child at a considerable distance. With such a gadget, the mother can stay in touch with the newborn, no matter what room she is in. A more complex alternative would be a video baby monitor - for such a gift, the newly-made mother will also say “thank you” to you.


2. Photoshoot

Babies grow fast and change daily, so every moment with them is unique. A professional photo shoot will help you capture special moments. It can be a family shoot, where both parents and a baby are present in the frame, or an individual shoot of a newborn - a newborn photo session.


3. Vitamin complex

In the process of bearing a child and childbirth, a woman spends a lot of physical and mental resources; therefore, in the postpartum period, the female body needs to be restored more than ever. A complex of vitamins can be a practical gift, but it makes sense to find out in advance which vitamins a woman needs.


4. Blender

After six months, such a gift will help prepare cereals, mashed potatoes, and mousses for a growing baby. When choosing a blender, pay attention to the quality of grinding the product and give preference to silent models so that the device does not frighten the child with a loud sound.


5. Humidifier

A helpful device for creating and maintaining an optimal microclimate in the children's room. When choosing a humidifier as a gift for mom, it is essential to consider the following characteristics: safety, energy consumption, water tank volume, and noise level.


Gifts for wife


1. Family photo album

In the era of digital content, any analog media becomes a curiosity. But how nice it is to leaf through photo albums, remembering the main milestones in your family's life! The album will be a touching gift and help form a sweet family tradition: fill it with photo memories first with your wife, then with your children.


2. Blanket with sleeves

It will be nice to wrap yourself in such a blanket with a book and a mug of hot tea when you have free time, for example, while the baby is sleeping. Sleeved blankets come in various designs and colors, so you'll find the right option.


3. A set for creating a cast of the arms and legs of a child

Making a cast on a baby's hand or foot is a great way to capture and immortalize the precious moments of the first months of a baby's life and development. A sweet and touching gift that any mother will love.


4. Jewelry

It can be anything at the husband's discretion, such as an elegant pendant, a pair of earrings, or a ring with a precious stone. Jewelry as a gift for discharge from the hospital will be an unforgettable surprise and will remind your beloved of her femininity and beauty.


5. Curtains-blackout

The baby sleeps sensitively, so it is essential to neutralize any factors that may disturb his sleep as much as possible. Thick blackout curtains will help create a comfortable environment for sleeping at any time of the day. And if the baby sleeps well, the mother has more time to rest.


Gifts for a friend


1. Sling

Cloth made of fabric, designed to carry the baby on you. Slings are suitable because they allow you to unload your hands, but at the same time not part with the baby. Convenient for travel, which is especially true if your friend plans to be an active mother.


2. Wireless headphones

A technological gift that will come in handy for a young mother in a new status. With such headphones, it is convenient to rock the baby, retire for feeding, do household chores, turn on music, a lecture, or an audiobook.


3. Stroller bag

In such a bag, you can put napkins, spare diapers, a drinker, and everything that can come in handy outside the home. A practical accessory that is handy to take for a walk with a child.


4. Cozy pajamas

After childbirth, any woman experiences physical discomfort for some time. Cute homemade little things will help ease her feelings and bring comfort to her everyday life: soft flannel pajamas, a plaid, or soft slippers.


5. Fitball

A multifunctional gift that will be useful not only for the mom but also for the baby. Why might it be needed? Bend your fingers:


  • so that mom or dad can rock the baby while sitting on the football,
  • so that mom can do fitness right at home,
  • so that parents introduce the baby to the fitball - there are special exercises for babies.


Gift for maternity hospital discharge


Most often, gifts are given for discharge that is useful here and now, but it will not be shameful to share something that is not yet in demand but will be needed shortly, such as educational toys.


Gifts for a boy


1. Night light with a projector

Projections of animals may seem frightening to the little one, but a night light with an imitation of the starry sky is perfect. The kid will watch with great interest the movement of stars on the ceiling and walls of the room.


2. Teether

The accessory will not only relieve pain during teething but also contribute to developing fine motor skills and forming a correct bite in a child. When choosing a teether, it is essential to consider the material of manufacture. In this sense, silicone is optimal: it is safe, pleasant to the touch, and odorless.


3. Bath toys

Swimming is always more fun in the company of rubber ducks and colorful fish. The kid from such a gift will be delighted. An alternative option is a circle for newborns around the neck, which will help keep the baby afloat.


4. Toys over the crib

The device is a suspended structure with various toys that, when turned on, begin to rotate to a pleasant melody. The mobile is usually mounted above the crib or stroller. Such a toy entertains the baby and develops the skill of concentration. Choose tactile pastel colors made from sustainable materials.


5. A set of bibs

An indispensable thing during feeding, especially when the baby's teeth begin to cut. Pay attention to the quality of the material and, of course, to the prints. The shape is also essential - for example, bibs in the form of a bandana look pretty.


Gifts for a girl


1. Massage brush

This baby brush has soft bristles and a comfortable handle. A gentle massage of the child's head with this comb will improve blood circulation and stimulate the hair follicles, accelerating the growth of the girl's first hair.


2. A set of children's dishes

Regarding complementary foods, such a gift will find a use. The dishes should be durable, made of environmentally friendly materials, and attractive with a bright design.


3. Textile book

A colorful product made of soft, safe material will suit babies at 3-6 months of age. The book will help the child's fine motor skills and imagination and will last a long time.


4. Dreamcatcher

According to ancient Indian beliefs, the amulet protects the sleeper from illness and drives away bad dreams. You can make it yourself or buy it ready-made. The wicker decoration at the head of the baby's bed will look cute and original.


5. Comfort toy

Any separation from the mother, even a short one, can be stressful for the newborn. The comfort toy is designed to calm the baby when a woman needs to leave, for example, to the kitchen or the bathroom. To "activate" the toy, the mother must put it next to her while feeding the baby.

Few mothers never doubt while practicing the mother's profession. So the question is, how do you know you're a good mom? Realizing what works for your child and learning to trust yourself is the best approach, say mothers who already have one or more children.


Super Moms tweets


The truth is that you can be a good mother, even if you sometimes have doubts! Just try to be a good mother. And see below some funny tweets by super moms.


1. Cool moment


2. Super Mario


3. A good idea


4. Pillowcase


Contradictory comments and discussions about raising and educating children, what we feed the child, how we react to his public hysteria, and what school we choose for the child can be very personal and painful. If you are a newcomer to the mother planet, to the Desprecopii, you know that a well-placed critique can cause you severe doubts about your motherhood skills.


Few mothers never doubt while practicing mother's profession. So the question is, how do you know you're a good mom? Realizing what works for your child and learning to trust yourself is the best approach, say mothers who already have one or more children. You are a good mother, even if you sometimes have doubts! Here's how to put one together for use with your mom.


When he is small, the child feels the need for much attention and affection from you and will try to do anything to get them. During the period when he asks you a lot of questions, most of them starting with "why," he feels the need to receive as much information as possible and to find out as much news as possible.


5. Food blogger


6. Pets and rules


If in childhood he is not listened to and does not receive the attention and affection he wants, in adolescence, he can either become very introverted, or he can adopt undesirable behaviors. Sermons and criticisms take him away from you and can create barriers to communication. Mutual respect between you and your child is the foundation of willing obedience.


Often, mothers come to my office and tell me that they can no longer communicate with their children who have reached adolescence. In the end, I realize that I am talking a lot, but that a barrier to communication is the lack of listening on both sides and the constant criticism. Find time every day to talk to your child and listen to him.


When he is young, he needs to know what he is allowed to do and what he should avoid. When he grows up, it is also important to explain to him what repercussions his actions have so that he can make informed decisions. It is important, during adolescence, to establish a set of rules such as: where to go for a walk, what time to leave and when to return and to present your entourage with which he spends his free time.


7. Live in the forest


8. My mother be like


9. Maternity


Basically, it is useful to know that he has a controlled freedom on your part, being able to decide for himself, but only after he has understood the risks and benefits of his behaviors. If you have an exaggerated reaction to the child's behavior, which is manifested by corporal or emotional punishment, you will activate his fear of you. In the future, he will try to postpone the confrontation with you as much as possible, fearing that you will not be punished. Thus, lying is a signal that fear has been installed.


Your child feels what you feel. He learns to provide emotional responses by taking over your emotional responses. Thus, it is necessary to be with him when he experiences emotions, in order to be able to repeat them in a greater proportion of the positive ones. Among other things, that means being a good mother.


The same happens in the case of behavior, when he is small, the child learns how to behave by imitating both the behavior of adults and their language. Empathy plays a very important role in understanding your child's emotions and behaviors. Try to translate into what he feels and thinks and identify with these feelings.


10. ADHD


11. Tiredness


If he has a negative thought like "I am not able to get a good grade in school", the child will experience emotions of fear, anxiety, nervousness. You can help him change his mind by examining with him the evidence behind the negative hypothesis.


Ask them questions such as: "Do you have concrete evidence to support this thought?", "Does the thought you have help you achieve what you set out to do?" Even young children can be successfully taught how to restructure their negative thoughts. Sometimes they react aggressively because they look at what is happening to them in a catastrophic way.


It is helpful to apply these techniques as part of your child's daily education. If you feel that it is difficult for you, do not demotivate yourself, but turn to a specialist who can guide you so that you become an expert in mastering these techniques.

famous-women-in-history-and-their-incredible-contribution

They have amazing fortitude, are not afraid to take risks, and are ahead of their time. They delight, fascinate, and turn consciousness and history as a whole. And if suddenly you lack inspiration right now, let their stories become a source of that same charge of energy with which you can achieve no less success.

 

Who are the most famous women in history?

 

In our world, men generally accept that men made all great discoveries. They also invented everything, created innovative technologies, and naturally drove progress. But it's not in our selection of only 30 women who have changed the world. There are, of course, many more of them.

 

Katharine Hepburn

 

American actress Katharine Hepburn (Katharine Houghton Hepburn) was born in Hartford, Connecticut, on May 12, 1907. The Hepburns were an unusual family for their time and surroundings. The father of the future Hollywood star, Thomas Norval, was a well-known urologist in the city, and his mother, Catherine Martha Haughton, whom everyone called 'Keith,' went down in history as a leader of the feminist and suffragist movement; she was orphaned early, managed to get a higher education against the will of her guardian, picketed the White House with calls to improve working conditions for women and allow birth control. 

 

Famous people of that time - the writer Sinclair Lewis, the leader of the suffragist movement Margaret Sanger and others - were frequent guests in the Hepburns' house. Topics that were not customary to talk about then were freely discussed in the living room. The famous actress had five brothers and sisters, who were raised in an atmosphere of free thinking and personal responsibility for their actions, taught to swim in icy water and not be afraid of any work. Katherine Haughton was named after her mother; she was the second child after her brother Tom, whom she loved so much that after his death, she began to consider the date of his birth (November 8) as her own.

 

Marie Curie

 

Maria Curie-Sklodowska was born on November 7, 1867, in Warsaw in the family of a physics teacher. Maria graduated from secondary school in Warsaw with a gold medal, after which she worked as a tutor and governess for eight years. In the laboratory at the Museum of Industry and Agriculture in Warsaw, she passed the preparatory stage in research in chemistry and physics. In 1891-95. studied at the Faculty of Natural Sciences of the Paris Sorbonne University and graduated with a bachelor's degree in physical and mathematical sciences. In the house of Professor Kowalski, she met Pierre Curie, whom she married in 1895 and took French citizenship. The first publication of Curie-Sklodowska was published in 1898 and drew the attention of scientists to Becquerel rays.

 

Edith Clarke

 

Edith Clarke was the first woman to earn an electrical engineering degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She became the first female electrical engineering professor at the University of Texas at Austin. Edith was born into a prosperous family in Maryland in the late 19th century and had no idea that she would become a woman who would build a career as a scientist. Like most girls, she dreamed of being a good wife, mother, and gracious hostess. Later, Edith Clark did not let public expectations hinder her professional aspirations and became one of the most famous engineers of her era.

 

After studying mathematics and astronomy at Vassar College, Clark began her career as a teacher. While working in this position, she realized her genuine interest in technology, even though women in the early 20th century rarely dared to think about something like that. Edith briefly studied civil engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison but did not graduate and went on to earn a degree in electrical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, becoming the first woman to do so.

 

As a woman, she could not find a job as an engineer but worked hard at it and eventually became an electrical engineer at the Central Station of General Electric's technical department and achieved great success with this company. Later she entered the electrical engineering department of the University of Texas at Austin.

 

Elizabeth Warren

 

In mid-March 2019, US Senator and Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren proposed splitting technology companies such as Apple, Facebook, Amazon, and Google. The senator's campaign received support from social networks.

 

Warren proposes to introduce a new category of companies - "platforms." These are virtual store companies with more than $25 billion in sales. Warren believes that Apple, Facebook, Amazon, and Google need to be broken up by forcing them to split or sell parts of their businesses and forbidding them from using their platforms to promote their products.

 

According to the senator, Google should give up ranking priority when searching for its services. Amazon should stop selling products from the Amazon Basics line and spin off Whole Foods into a separate business, and Facebook should sell Instagram and WhatsApp.

 

Warren is concerned about the power over information and, ultimately, the power over the economy that the tech giants have acquired. In her opinion, such companies suppress the development of small IT businesses and innovative technologies. Without platform separation, a new generation of IT leaders in the United States may never appear.

 

Facebook has already shown a prime example of its power: the platform removed Warren's presidential campaign ads. After rising indignation, advertising was returned. Subsequently, a Facebook spokesperson said that the company removed only four of Warren's advertisements due to Facebook's logo rules violations.

 

Either way, with the 2020 presidential election approaching, the internet giants will likely come under increasing criticism from senators. Facebook, in particular, is facing growing scrutiny from lawmakers over a range of issues, including its market share, the spread of misinformation on the platform, and the resale of user data.

 

Hillary Clinton

 

Hillary has a law degree. From 1965-to 1969, she attended Wellesley Women's Private College in Massachusetts, where she majored in political science and received a bachelor's degree. In 1973 she graduated from Yale University with a doctorate in law - where she met her future husband. In 1973 she worked as a legal adviser for the Children's Defense Fund in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and in 1974 - in the office of the Judiciary Committee of the US House of Representatives in Washington.

 

As First Lady of Arkansas, Hillary was active in public life, focusing on children, health, and education.

 

In 1980, she gave birth to a daughter, Chelsea, but the birth of a child did not make her give up her career as a lawyer. By the 1980s, she had established herself as one of the best lawyers in the United States - in 1988 and 1991. The National Law Journal named Clinton among the 100 most influential lawyers in the country.

 

After becoming the first lady of the United States after the election of Bill Clinton as president in the 1992 elections, at her husband's request, she headed the operational committee for the development of health care reform. Hillary went on to turn her attention to protecting the interests of children and women. Her weekly comments entitled "Let's talk" on the White House website were devoted to this issue.

 

After leaving the administration, Clinton began writing her memoirs and giving paid lectures. According to the press, her average fee for one public performance is about $200,000. Forbes magazine estimates Hillary's fortune at $45 million.

 

She is also the author of several books, among them "The whole world and other lessons that children ask us" (1996), "Invitation to the White House" (1999), and memoirs "Living History" (2003). The last book - "A Hard Choice" - was published in 2014.

 

Eleanor Roosevelt

 

First Lady of the United States, public figure, wife of 32 US President Franklin Roosevelt, niece of Theodore Roosevelt. Eleanor Roosevelt is also known as a publicist, writer and human rights activist, took part in the creation of the UN and belonged to the first wave of feminists. She died November 7, 1962.

 

In 1928, Franklin was elected Governor of New York, and in 1933 he became President of the United States. Eleanor Roosevelt's worries increased: she visited schools, hospitals and prisons, traveled around the country, met with voters. She defended the rights of black citizens of the United States, advocated the preservation of prohibition. During her absence from the capital, the duties of the First Lady were performed by her daughter Anne.

 

After the death of Franklin Roosevelt in 1945, Eleanor did not leave public life. She published a lot, dealt with the problems of youth and ethnic minorities. Eleanor Roosevelt became chairman of the Human Rights Committee and traveled to many countries, was part of the US delegation to the UN. President Kennedy appointed her to the Peace Corps and chair of the Women's Rights Commission, and later to the POW Commission.

 

Emmeline Pankhurst

Suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst was ready to literally do anything to defend the rights of women: she collected thousands of protests, participated in pogroms, went on a hunger strike in prison. The suffragettes faced violence and were arrested en masse, but in the end, under the leadership of Pankhurst, they won the right for women to vote.

 

In August 1914, Great Britain entered the First World War. Pankhurst called on members of the Women's Social and Political Union to temporarily suspend actions and rallies in order to help the motherland in wartime. Emmeline asked women to go to work in factories instead of men who went to the front. Between 1914 and 1918, about 2 million women took on jobs that men who had gone to war were temporarily unable to do. If at the beginning of the war only 24% of British women were employed, by the end of hostilities their share had grown to 37%.

 

Pankhurst opened an orphanage during the war and, at age 57, took care of four orphans herself. At the same time, Emmeline had no property for a long time: she sold her house back in 1907, and all her things were placed in a small suitcase. All of Pankhurst's money went to helping others and activism. She herself lived with friends and supporters of the suffragist movement. When Pankhurst was asked how, in such a difficult financial situation, she decided to take care of the orphans, the activist replied: “You’d better ask why I didn’t take forty children.”

 

Women's contribution to the economy during the First World War, as well as their dedication, convinced the government that suffrage should not be exclusively a male privilege. In 1918, the Representation of the People Act was passed. Women were allowed to vote provided they were over 30 years of age, were not restricted in their rights and occupied "land or premises in the district for business purposes generating at least £5 of income". In 1928, these restrictions were also lifted. English women were equal in voting rights with men. It was an absolute victory for the suffragettes. Emmeline Pankhurst died shortly thereafter on June 14, 1928.

 

Today, several monuments have been erected in her honor, including in Manchester and London. Time magazine included her in the list of 100 most prominent figures of the 20th century, noting that Pankhurst "created the image of a woman of our time, transferring society to a new dimension from which it is no longer possible to return to the past."

 

Ada Lovelace

 

From the beginning of 1841, Lovelace began to study Babbage's machines in earnest. In one of the letters to Babbage, Ada writes: “You must tell me the basic information regarding your car. I have good reason for wanting it." In a letter dated January 12, 1841, she outlines her plans: "...Some time in the future (maybe within 3 or 4, and possibly even many years) my head can serve you for your goals and plans ... Precisely I want to have a serious talk with you on this matter." This proposal was gratefully accepted by Babbage. Since that time, their cooperation has not been interrupted and has given brilliant results.

 

Since 1844, Ada Lovelace has become more and more interested in playing at the races, especially since she herself rode beautifully and loved horses. Both Babbage and William Lovelace played at the races, and Babbage, who was interested in applied problems of probability theory, considered the game at the races from these positions and was looking for the optimal game system. However, both Babbage and Ada's husband withdrew from the game relatively soon. But Ada, reckless and stubborn, continued to play. Moreover, Lady Hell became close to a certain John Cross, who blackmailed her. She used up almost all of her funds and by 1848 had become heavily indebted.

 

Then her mother had to pay off these debts, and at the same time buy incriminating letters from John Cross. In the early 50s, the first signs of the disease that claimed the life of Ada Lovelace appeared. In November 1850, he writes to Babbage: "My health ... is so bad that I want to accept your offer and appear on arrival in London to your medical friends." Despite the measures taken, the disease progressed and was accompanied by severe suffering. On November 27, 1852, Ada Lovelace died at the age of 37. Together with her outstanding intellect, her father passed on to her this terrible heredity - an early death - the poet died at the same age ... She was buried next to her father in the Byron family crypt.

 

Successes were given to her with great effort and not without damage to health. Augusta Ada Lovelace accomplished little in her short life. But the little that came out of her pen inscribed her name in the history of computational mathematics and computer technology as the first programmer. In memory of Ada Lovelace, the ADA language, developed in 1980, is one of the universal programming languages. This language was widely used in the United States, and the US Department of Defense even approved the name "Ada" as the name of a single programming language for the American armed forces, and later for the entire NATO.

 

Also in honor of Ada Lovelace, two small cities are also named in America - in the states of Alabama and Oklahoma. There is also a college named after her in Oklahoma.

 

Jane Austen

 

English writer, satirist, forerunner of realism in British literature. Her books are recognized as masterpieces in all countries of the world and are required to be studied in schools and institutes. Jane Austen is known as the "First Lady" of English literature.

 

Jane Austen was born at the end of the 18th century in Steventon, Hampshire. Father George was a priest from an old family. The Austin family was large: six boys and two girls (Cassandra and Jane).

 

Little is known about the writer Jane Austen. Many of her contemporaries even disagree about her appearance. Someone calls her "prim, capricious and unnatural", someone - "attractive, thin, graceful." All that remained of Jane was a portrait painted by her sister Cassandra.

 

In 1783 Jane studied at Oxford, Southampton and Reading with her sister. They were not lucky with their education. Somewhere met the tyrannical nature of the headmistress, but somewhere too soft. Jane's father took the girls home and began to educate them himself. Jane Austen grew up on the works of Shakespeare, Fielding, Stern, Thompson.

 

At the age of 14, Jane Austen wrote her first parody of the boring 18th century odes Love and Friendship. The little girl had the courage to write a parody pamphlet on the work of the English historian Goldsmith "History of England".

 

Jane Austen spent her whole life in her native estate, but kept an active correspondence with her brothers and their wives, who saw the events of the French Revolution, the war with Napoleon, the Indian War of Independence.

 

According to some testimonies, Jane Austen suffered from cancer and metastasis all her life. She died in Winchester in 1817, where she went to treat Addison's disease. She never finished her last novel, Sanditon.

 

Mother Teresa

 

Mother Teresa (worldly name - Agnes Gonje Boyadzhiu) was born on August 26, 1910 in the city of Uskyub of the Ottoman Empire (now the city of Skopje - the capital of the Republic of Macedonia) in a family of Catholic Albanians. She later called her real birthday August 27, when she was baptized.

 

According to Mother Teresa, from early childhood she wanted to devote herself to serving the church. This desire was strengthened at the age of 12 when she met missionaries from India. From that time on, she dreamed of living in India and caring for the poor there. After graduating from high school, in 1928 she left to study English in Ireland and became a novice in the Irish Sisters of Loreto Catholic monastic order.

 

The girl's parents were wealthy people: her father Nikola, a native of Armenia, owned a large construction company and sold medicines, and her mother, an Albanian Dranafile, devoted herself to prayers and worship. The family strictly followed Catholic traditions. Dranafile often visited the sick and needy with her children and invited the poor to her home for dinners. “My child, never eat a single bite until you share it with others,” she said to Agnese. When she asked who the unknown guests were, the mother replied: "Some of them are our relatives, but they are all our people."

 

It was believed that Mother Teresa helped the sick and the poor, alleviated their suffering by providing them with shelter, treatment and food. However, the nun had a special view of death and torment: she said that they should be glorified, not healed. She compared suffering with the noble torments of Christ and was opposed to painkillers: “There is something beautiful in the way the poor take their share, how they suffer, like Jesus on the cross. The world gains a lot from suffering. Anguish means that Jesus is kissing you."

 

Mother Teresa's main departments were the homes for the dying, where doomed people were to spend their last days. Writer Mary Loudon, a former volunteer, recalled: “The first impression of the footage was ... as if I had a photo from Bergen-Belsen [Nazi concentration camp. — Approx. ed.], because all the patients were shaved bald. There were no chairs, only cots, similar to those from the First World War. There was no garden, no yard, nothing at all. And I thought, “What is this? These are two rooms. One has 50 to 60 men, the other has the same number of women. Everyone is dying. They received virtually no medical care. They did not receive any painkillers other than aspirin.”

@Tammina Best women ever
love-is-40-love-facts-you-might-not-know-before

Love is something abstract. It cannot be described in words; it can only be felt. Love is not subject to time, logic, or any laws. It is elusive. We each have our language and vision of love. Therefore, we will not try to understand this eternal question - "what is love?".

 

About love from the point of view of psychology

 

Instead, we will share 40 psychological facts that convince you that love is a fantastic feeling.

 

 

1. Most people fall in love through eye contact.

 

And this happens within the first 30 seconds. Love at first sight in action!

 

2. The heart can be broken.

 

Research has shown that severe traumatic events—breakup, divorce, physical distance, or the loss of a loved one—can cause physical pain in a person’s heart. This condition is known as broken heart syndrome. Deep emotional triggers upset the brain and weaken a person's heart, causing symptoms such as chest pain or shortness of breath. Generally, the syndrome is more common in women than men and can be mistaken for a heart attack.

 

3. When we look at a person we like, our pupils dilate by 45%. It makes us more attractive

 

4. A person gradually falls in love with someone with whom he spends a lot of time - for example, a classmate or colleague

 

This psychological phenomenon is known as the exposure effect. Thanks to it, people tend to be attracted to each other depending on the time spent together.

 

5. People are more attracted to those who are as attractive as they are.

 

This is called the matching hypothesis. Many social researchers point out that people choose their partners or romantic relationships according to a specific pattern. For example, if you are attractive, you would most likely want to be with the prettiest person in your neighborhood, at work, or school/university.

 

6. Holding the hand of a loved one will reduce mental and physical pain.

 

 

7. One look is enough to fall in love

 

After all, the eyes are the mirror of the soul. So be careful who you look at. When we look at someone, our body releases phenylethylamine, a chemical associated with the body's fight-or-flight response.

 

8. Giving freedom is a love paradox

 

The more independence you give your partner, the more attached he will be to you.

 

9. Sometimes, it can turn into an addiction.

 

If this happens, it is better to end the relationship.

 

10. Talkative women and silent men tend to make the best couples.

 

11. Men fall in love faster than women.

 

 

12. When a person sees someone he loves, his heartbeat involuntarily quickens.

 

13. People marry people they can't live without, not people they can live with for the rest of their lives.

 

14. If you love hugging, you'll be glad to know that hugging is a natural pain reliever.

 

When two people hug, their brain releases oxytocin, the hug hormone. Oxytocin reduces headaches and is a pain reliever for up to 4 hours. Therefore, hugs are a great alternative to painkillers if you feel tired, stressed, or in pain.

 

15. A photo of a loved one can also relieve pain.

 

Scientists have proven that the presence of a loved one helps a sick patient recover—the same works with his image. In a study conducted among people in pain, some participants were shown photos of their loved ones while others played with words (for distraction). The pain was significantly reduced in those who were shown pictures than in participants who alternatively played games.

 

16. Partners with similar interests and tastes are unlikely to last long in a romantic relationship.

 

It's the same with complete opposites, despite the widespread belief that opposites attract. As a rule, couples who are either too similar or too different cannot be together for long. According to the researchers, there should always be a solid basis for similarities and what both people can learn from each other.

 

17. People in love are chemically similar to those with OCD.

 

Studies have shown that couples in the early stages of love have lower levels of serotonin, which is associated with happiness and well-being, and higher levels of cortisol, the stress hormone. Similar rates are observed in people with OCD - obsessive-compulsive disorder. This is why we feel, act, or imagine ourselves differently than usual when we fall in love with someone.

 

18. Regarding long-term relationships, people usually prefer an attractive face to a beautiful body.

 

However, when people seek entertainment, the body wins - and it's all because of physical attraction.

 

19. Simply expressing gratitude to the people you love causes instant happiness.

 

 

20. The expression "butterflies in the stomach" is a natural sensation caused by the release of adrenaline.

 

21. Studies have shown that if people meet in a dangerous situation, they are more likely to fall in love with each other than if they meet in a peaceful environment.

 

For example, two people are more likely to fall in love if they meet on a white water rafting trip instead of in an office.

 

22. Women in red psychologically turn men on.

 

This color is closely associated with desire and attraction. For example, according to some reports, women are more likely to wear red clothes during the fertile phases of the menstrual cycle.

 

23. When you discover someone likes you, a small part of you starts to love him back.

 

Even if, before that, you did not have feelings for this person.

 

24. Some people can't bear the loss of loved ones and die months or years later due to mental or physical illness.

 

25. 64% of people change their appearance after a breakup.

 

 

26. Good relationships are about two things: firstly, you need to appreciate similarities, and secondly, you need to respect differences.

 

27. Research shows that long-distance relationships are just as satisfying as regular relationships in terms of communication, intimacy, and commitment.

 

28. The leading cause of depression is unsuccessful love stories.

 

29. Women are involuntarily drawn to cheerful men with a good sense of humor.

 

Girls like to be happy, so a man who makes them laugh attracts them like a magnet.

 

30. We always associate the person we love with our favorite songs.

 

31. They say trust is essential thing in a relationship.

But it's not. Time is what matters most. It is over time that trust, friendship, and eternal and inseparable bonds grow.

 

32. Happiness Is Contagious, Research Shows

 

It can be difficult for people to walk away from someone happy or not to love someone happy simply because such people are friendly to be around.

 

33. The more you ignore someone you like, the more you fall in love with them.

 

 

34. Men with a lower voice are more likely to sound attractive than males with a higher voice.

 

35. Women first experience pleasure psychologically before experiencing it physically.

 

For men, it's precisely the opposite.

 

36. It only takes 4 minutes for a person to understand whether he likes someone or not.

 

So if you want to make a good impression on someone, you don't have much time! It is believed that getting and holding someone's attention has more to do with body language, tone, and speed of your voice than what you say.

 

37. When two loving people look into each other's eyes for 3 minutes, their heart rate is synchronized.

 

38. Testosterone is a powerful male hormone that attracts women with its scent.

 

Cologne mimics the smell of testosterone can make a woman pay attention to a man.

 

39. Falling in love is like cocaine addiction: it causes the same chemical euphoria and almost the same effect on the human mind.

 

40. Twenty-year-old men feel more emotional pain after a breakup than women.
