Attention - sci-fi made plausible!

I'm not gonna lie about it, I've never been a fan of Rise of Planet of the Apes. But now, I've evolved from been a meh who really watches that movie to a great fan. This movie might have launched itself in something simply spectacular.

This sci-fi movie is a mind blowing production, In a world where man have dominion over everything, including animals and science, homosapiens are suddently trapped into their own foolishness and overpowered with a reversed role. Although this is not a horror movie, you will be terrified watching these chimps are destroying the world and an army of men using stone age weapons, their agility and intelligence. This is how you know that they've made sci-fi more than plausible!

Rupert Wyatt, Pierre Boulle, Rick Jaffa, and James Franco are geniuses!

Movie review - How to train your dragon

I must rate How to Train your Dragon 90%. This may be 10% too high of a mark but who cares. Dreamworks Animation absolutely deserves this mark. This is the best animated movie I have seen in the last 2 years.

I find it so funny compared to Avatar by James Cameron. I find the movie is so much better regarding the storyline and the development of the characters. The script was exceptional. Note: I did not watch it in 3D because 3D movies give me headaches.

Nonetheless I found the visuals to be remarkable even without it. The movie is so good, it feels like Pixar HAD to be involved . Is it possible that Dreamworks has finally figured it out? In many sequences just like when I watched UP (my favorite last year film), I think that it had to be written by pet-lovers because the writers show so much much comprehension on building the bonds between a man and an animal.

This bond between the kid and Toothless makes it so believable and I enjoyed every minute of How to Train your Dragon. This movie is brilliant and smart. My favorite scene : Toothless trying to smile. This film is a great movie for young like old.  I definitely recommend it.

Cheap and fun gift ideas for women

My big sister and I have a rule when it comes to exchanging presents. We allow ourselves a 30 bucks max. We find outrageous to be spending so much money on each other because what really matters is the thought. Also, it is a little unfair for the one who are making less money to also be spending lots of presents. We both adore each other and love to give each other a present every once in a while.

So over the years, finding cheap presents is becoming easier as we are becoming more creative. My sister birthday is coming up soon and I wanted to share with you some of my great under 30bucks present ideas findings.

1- The Disappeared by Kim Echlin.
I love this book a lot. It is a kind of a very romantic love struggle between a Cambodian intellectual with a Canadian foreign student, before, during, and after the cruel regime of Khmer Rouge in which all Cambodian people suffered from in one way or another.

2- Wine aerator
If you are shopping for a wine drinker - totally give this product a try.

3- Women's electric shaver
They are so practical, useful, quick and easy to use! Just like me, she'll never go back to manual razors!

4- Slap Chop
Coz it's totally fun and it's cheap. I have one and highly recommend it. Make sure to tap hard and fast though, just like the Slap Chop guy on tv!

5- A subscription at a magazine (Elle, Cosmo, Marie Claire, O, Good Housekeeping, Scientific American, Time are all great ideas).

And last but not least, a hand made present. Try making your own paint, drawing your favorite picture of you two, make a collage of family and friends. A handmade present is always beautiful and more meaningful!

Happy shopping!

Guess dress

My first post will be about my guess dress fetishism... Yes I am in love with Guess clothes. I find that of all the brands and stores, Guess fits me the best, whether it is jeans, tshirts, jackets or dresses.

Although I pretty much love of all Guess clothing, their dresses are what I really love. They have a really sexy look to them, fit great and look great. The only prob is that they tend to be on the shorter side. So they are a big no no for work, or for some formal occasions such as weddings.

 

But to go out on a Saturday night, Guess dresses are my first picks, or for a fancy dinner in the Caribbeans on vacation.

I'm posting here a few of my favorite Guess picks.

so hot!

i can totally see that for a walk by the beach in the caribbean late at night...

 

 

What are the key health dangers for children?

What are the key health dangers for children?

Q: What are the key health dangers for children, and what is WHO doing to address them?

 

 


A: Nearly 10 million children under the age of five die each year – more than 1000 every hour – but most could survive threats and thrive with access to simple, affordable interventions.

The risk of death is highest in the first month of life. Preterm birth, birth asphyxia and infections cause most newborn deaths. Health risks to newborns are minimized by:

  • quality care during pregnancy;
  • safe delivery by a skilled birth attendant; and
  • strong neonatal care: immediate attention to breathing and warmth, hygienic cord and skin care, and early initiation of exclusive breastfeeding.

From one month to five years of age, the main causes of death are pneumonia, diarrhoea, malaria, measles and HIV. Malnutrition is estimated to contribute to more than one third of all child deaths.

  • Pneumonia is the prime cause of death in children under five years of age. Nearly three-quarters of all cases occur in just 15 countries. Addressing the major risk factors – including malnutrition and indoor air pollution – is essential to preventing pneumonia, as are vaccination and breastfeeding. Antibiotics and oxygen are vital tools for effectively managing the illness.
  • Diarrhoeal diseases are a leading cause of sickness and death among children in developing countries. Breastfeeding helps prevent diarrhoea among young children. Treatment for sick children with Oral Rehydration Salts (ORS) combined with zinc supplements is safe, cost-effective, and saves lives.
  • One African child dies every 30 seconds from malaria. Insecticide-treated nets prevent transmission and increase child survival.
  • Over 90% of children with HIV are infected through mother-to-child transmission, which can be prevented with antiretrovirals, as well as safer delivery and feeding practices.
  • About 20 million children under five worldwide are severely malnourished, which leaves them more vulnerable to illness and early death.

About two-thirds of child deaths are preventable through practical, low-cost interventions. WHO is improving child health by helping countries to deliver integrated, effective care in a continuum - starting with a healthy pregnancy for the mother, through birth and care up to five years of age. Investing in strong health systems is key to prevention and delivery of quality care.
