50 most interesting and fun facts about the International Women's Day that you need to know in 2022
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.

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!

50 richest women in 2022 that will amaze you
If you think today's billionaires are refined socialites whose fingers shake from the weight of diamond rings, we hasten to disappoint you and show you what the richest women in the world look like.
According to Forbes, every year the number of women who get rich and multiply their fortunes is steadily growing. And probably this year, we could observe the same positive dynamics, if not for the economic crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Therefore, in 2021, 228 women were among the richest people on the planet - 13 less than last year. But paradoxically, their combined wealth has increased by $570 billion (as the stock markets slowly start to recover).
Many leaders of last year's rating managed to strengthen their positions (or even improve them). For example, L'Oreal heiress Françoise Bettencourt-Myers broke into the top spot of the Forbes 2021 Women's list, displacing Alice Walton. Her company's stock rose an incredible 40%, so Betancourt-Myers made $24.7 billion rich.
Top richest women in 2022
2020 has also been a successful year for the ex-wife of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, Mackenzie Scott. She donated almost $6 billion to charity but still managed to increase her fortune. How did it happen? The fact is that after the divorce, Mackenzie became the owner of a 4% stake in Amazon. Their value increased by 66% last year, and thanks to this, Scott's fortune has grown by almost 50%.
The richest newcomer on the list, with $38.2 billion, was Miriam Adelson of Nevada, who inherited her husband's casino empire after his death.
Using the example of the 30 main billionaires in the world, we decided to figure out what and how to do to appear in the Forbes ranking (small spoiler: the shortest way is to be born into a rich family, but it is not the only one).

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.

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.

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.

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.
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.
