Killed for honor

In the history of religion there are a lot of horrible facts among the respected ones, the ones that must strengthen the spirituality of a person and make people proud of their faith.

What frightens the world right now is the increasing amount of women honor killings in Muslim countries and communities in Europe. This is the religious ritual, the sign that seems so obsolete, one can hardly believe that such animal laws can still exist in the modern developed world.

Swimming Tips For Chickens

I’ve heard many legends about human’s “unfloatability”. They say that being in the water is unnatural for a human being, but I dare to disagree. ANY healthy person can swim, and that’s a proven fact. Are you still afraid of approaching the water? Let me tell you something.


First of all, human body IS able to float. Basically, it is heavier than the water because of the bones and organs. So, what helps us floating? Right you are, the air.

Food movies you should watch and “try”.

Food and dining, restaurants and cafes never play essential narrative role in cinema, except several movies I would like to discuss in my post. It is fair to say that pretty often the story of the film can take place in a restaurant or bar. Eating is just inevitable part of our life so it is not surprising to see characters dining in restaurants or hanging out in bars all the time. As a rule restaurants, bars or cafes are just places where main characters meet, spend spare time, talk, quarrel, part or split up.

New Trend – Itinerary

Nowadays, when the Internet provides endless opportunities to reveal your talent or improve creative skills, writing became a common activity among all groups of the society. Everybody write, some for their own pleasure, some for the purpose to become known among the readers. A new trend in the world of writing is itinerary, a travel journal, or, as it is called in the modern language, travelog.

In travelogs you do not only describe your trip in terms of “I have visited the ruins of Angkor which present an excellent example of Khmer art”. It sounds boring and, besides, this information can be found in any guidebook devoted to Cambodia. What you need is to find something unique, to tell about the country through the prism of your own perception, to describe funny adventures you’ve experienced while visiting, for instance, the forbidden for tourists zones of these Angkor ruins.
