Short Lunch Atop a Skyscraper-Watch the 100 Photos Documentary

It’s the most perilous yet playful lunch break ever captured: 11 men casually eating, chatting and sneaking a smoke as if they weren’t 840 feet above Manhattan with nothing but a thin beam keeping them aloft. That comfort is real; the men are among the construction workers who helped build Rockefeller Center. But the picture, taken on the 69th floor of the flagship RCA Building (now the GE Building), was staged as part of a promotional campaign for the massive skyscraper complex. While the photographer and the identities of most of the subjects remain a mystery—the photographers Charles C. Ebbets, Thomas Kelley and William Leftwich were all present that day, and it’s not known which one took it—there isn’t an ironworker in New York City who doesn’t see the picture as a badge of their bold tribe. In that way they are not alone. By thumbing its nose at both danger and the Depression, Lunch Atop a Skyscraper came to symbolize American resilience and ambition at a time when both were desperately needed. It has since become an iconic emblem of the city in which it was taken, affirming the romantic belief that New York is a place unafraid to tackle projects that would cow less brazen cities. And like all symbols in a city built on hustle, Lunch Atop a Skyscraper has spawned its own economy. It is the Corbis photo agency’s most reproduced image. And good luck walking through Times Square without someone hawking it on a mug, magnet or T-shirt.

Center and the now-iconic Lunch Atop a Skyscraper

Amazing Benefits Of Bay Leaves

Bay Leaves

If You Burn Bay Leaves , You will find this amazing things.

Ease Tension, Anxiety, and Fatigue to Help You Relax- Bay leaves contain compounds such as cineol, pinene, and elemicin that when burned produce a relaxing and energizing effect. These chemicals get released into the air and can be breathed in for the stimulating effects which have been described by many as feeling slightly psychedelic in nature. Here’s how to do it:

Take a dried bay leaf and light one end of it on fire over a metal tray, glass dish, or any other type of fire-proof container. Once it’s lit gently blow out any flames so that it smolders and place it safely on the container. The air will soon fill with smoke, don’t breathe this directly. Rather, aim to breathe in the vapors it produces indirectly, as if it were incense.

Once the leaf has burned itself out and the smoke clears you should be able to feel the calming effects. You will be more relaxed and at ease and your mind will be clearer. At the same time, you will feel more awake and less drowsy, so if you ever feel stressed try burning a bay leaf!

Helps to Clear Respiratory System- Bay leaves are a natural remedy that can help treat clogged, backed up respiratory passages and lungs. It acts naturally to help break up and remove the nasty mucus and phlegm that’s causing all the problems. Instead of burning the leaves, soak fresh ones in clean water or pick up a small vial of bay leaf oil and use it in a humidifier to create a steamy vapor which you then breathe in. You can also simply boil the treated water on the stove top or rub the oil on your chest area to alleviate respiratory problems, allergies, and asthma.

Helps to Improve Cardiovascular Health- Bay leaves are rich in a caffeic acid which is a natural organic compound that helps strengthen and support the heart’s capillary walls. In addition, caffeic acid also works to eliminate low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL), which is the bad type that no one wants in their cardiovascular system. Rather than burning or inhaling treated steam, add the bay leaves to your cooking and you’ll take in all the heart healthy benefits by simply eating the delicious food you make!

Prevention is better than cure

Blogs Notes

Every year during the winter season a number of families in Pakistan suffocate to death due to keeping the gas heaters on for the whole night during sleep and it is so mainly because the majority of our population is unaware of the precautionary measures needed to avoid losses while using gas heaters.
Gas heaters release emissions such as carbon monoxide directly into the room, increase the level of indoor pollutants, which can potentially harm your health including a high incidence of respiratory symptoms.
Gas heaters also consume oxygen while burning, causing lower amounts of oxygen in the room if not properly ventilated. Poisoning can also result due to leakage of gas heaters accidentally in close rooms.
Some people are more susceptible than others to suffer health effects such as heart disease patients, asthmatics, pregnant ladies, children and elderly, explained Head of Community Medicine at CMH Lahore Medical College Professor…

The Shapes Of Secularism

سیکولرازم کا روپ

سیکولر ازم کا روپ ہر ملک میں مختلف ہے۔ لیکن

پوری دنیا میں اس کے ہاں ایک قدر مشترک ہے۔ یہ ہندوازم، بدھ ازم، عیسائیت وغیرہ کے خلاف نہیں۔

یہ اجتماعی زندگی میں ہولی، دیوالی، کرسمس وغیرہ کو پسند کرتا ہے۔ لیکن اس کی جان جمعے کے خطبے سے نکلتی ہے۔ اسے عید کا اجتماع دیکھ کر موت پڑجاتی ہے۔

دنیا پوری کروڑوں ٹن بیف کا باربی کیو بنالے، آسٹریلیا کی بھیڑوں کے کروڑوں تکا بوٹی بناکر کھائے جائیں اسے جانوروں کے حقوق یاد نہیں آتے لیکن ایک دن عیدالاضحی کی قربانی اسے زہر لگتی ہے۔ اسے کرسمس کی فضول خرچی بری نہیں لگتی لیکن حج پر جانے والوں کے خرچے کا حساب کرتا ہے۔

دنیا بھر میں ٹورازم انڈسٹری سے اربوں ڈالر کمانا ترقی کی علامت ہے لیکن اسے عمرے کا ایک سادہ سا سفر برا لگتا ہے۔ ہندو کروڑوں کی تعداد میں ہر دوار‘ بنارس اور کنبھ جائیں تو سیکولر کو کچھ نہیں ہوتا۔ ویٹیکن سٹی میں لوگ لاکھوں کی تعداد میں پوپ کی زیارت کو آئیں تو کسی لبرل کا دل نہیں جلتا۔

چرچ کی راہبائیں حجاب پہنیں‘ یہودی عورتیں شٹل کاک برقعہ پہنیں‘ اس کو برا نہیں لگتا لیکن وہ مسلمان عورت کے حجاب پر تلملا اٹھتا ہے۔ یہ ہے سیکولرازم کا اصل دکھ اور اس کا اصل چہرہ۔ ان کی کتابیں، ان کے رسالے، ان کی ویب سائٹس، ان کے فیس بک پیجز اٹھالیں آپ کو صرف اور صرف اسلام اور شعائر اسلام سے نفرت ملے گی.

Benefits of Alkaline Water

Improve your health, supercharge your immune system, and fight the aging process with antioxidant-rich alkaline water.

Toxins are the number one cause of aging. They are often a result of poor diet, pollution, and stress. Toxins can build up in your body causing cell damage that leads to premature aging. The best way to fight toxins and detoxify your body is with antioxidants. And it’s as easy as drinking antioxidant-rich alkaline water.

  1. DETOXIFY
    Detoxify your body to remove normal acidic waste products accumulated daily, plus remove toxins accumulated in your body from your environment, prescription drugs, unnatural foods and from the “normal” process of aging. Acid wastes collected in the body can lead to more serious health conditions. Drinking alkaline water daily can neutralize the acidity and wash acid waste products from cells and tissues.
  2. HYDRATE
    Hydrate your body: this is basic to maintain or regain optimum health. During ionization your alkaline water filter forms your water into micro clusters that are more easily absorbed at the cellular levels thus “super hydrating” your body.
  3. OXYGENATE / ANTIOXIDANTS
    Alkaline water acts as an antioxidant, scavenging for and neutralizing harmful free radicals. Because alkaline water has the ability to give up electrons, it can effectively neutralize and block free-radical damage to the body. Ionized alkaline water seeks out free radicals and converts them into oxygen which your body can use for energy production and tissue oxygenation. Cancer and most other illnesses cannot survive in an oxygenated, alkaline environment.
  4. ALKALIZE YOUR BODY’S pH
    Alkaline water helps balance the body’s pH, which tends to be acidic because of our high acid food diet, stress and exposure to environmental toxins such as smog. Alkalize your body pH from acidic to alkaline pH, because cancer and many other illnesses cannot live in alkaline environments. Alkaline is the “normal” state of healthy persons.
  5. ENHANCE YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
    Enhance your immune system to maximize your body’s ability to fight off disease and heal itself.

Nuwruz,The Celebration Of Springtime

This ancient festival is a celebration of springtime—and a brand new year

PHOTOGRAPH BY HOSSEIN FATEMI, PANOS PICTURES/REDUX
Iranian-Americans dance to bring in the new year at the 2016 Nowruz Festival in downtown Chicago.

Nowruz, also known as Persian New Year, has been observed for more than 3,000 years as the victory of spring over darkness.

FOR THE NORTHERN Hemisphere, March 19 is the first day of spring. But for 300 million people around the world, it’s the beginning of a new year, too. Nowruz—which means “new day”—is a holiday marking the arrival of spring and the first day of the year in Iran, whose solar calendar begins with the vernal equinox.

Nowruz has been celebrated in Iran and the Persian diaspora for more than 3,000 years. Its roots are as a feast day in Zoroastrianism, a religion practiced in ancient Persia that viewed the arrival of spring as a victory over darkness. The holiday survived the Islamic conquest of Persia in the seventh century and the decline of Zoroastrianism’s popularity, and it spread across the globe through the diaspora of Persian people throughout history. (Here’s how Persia became the world’s first true empire.)

Traditionally celebrated on the vernal equinox, many begin preparations for Nowruz weeks in advance. In the leadup to the holiday, people perform ritual dances and fill vessels in their home with water, which is associated with health, in an attempt to banish bad luck.

At Nowruz celebrations—like this one in Los Angeles, California—people jump over small fires to bring good luck in the new year.

On the last Wednesday before Nowruz, many celebrate Charshanbe Suri, a night in which they jump over fire or go to doors banging spoons to scare away bad luck. People also visit cemeteries and bring offerings for the dead, whom some believe visit before the spring rite begins.

The spring festival’s focus is fertility and new life, so it’s appropriate that many revelers celebrate with seeds and eggs. Households set up tables covered with seven symbolic items they call haft-seen. Haft means “seven” and “seen” is “s” in Farsi, and all of the items start with the letter. These include seed sprouts (usually wheat, oats and other seeds, which symbolize rebirth), senjed (also known as silverberry or Persian olive, which is thought to spark love), garlic (protection), apple (fertility), sumac (love), vinegar (patience), and samanu, a pudding made of sprouted wheat (affluence). The table also can include a Koran, eggs, mirrors, and poetry.

Though Nowruz is old, the table tradition isn’t: As A. Shapur Shahbazi notes in Encyclopedia Iranica, it only came into effect in the last century.
