(Video) Angry Swan Gives Woman A Lesson For Not Wearing Mask Properly

Published

on

In a recent video shared on Twitter, a woman can be seen crouching down next to a swan in a park in France. Rather than wearing her mask the right way to cover her mouth and nose she has it pulled down around her neck.

The unnamed woman seems happy to be in the swan’s company, the bird is clearly feeling otherwise, where it suddenly snaps at her from the tiny stream that separates them.

Thankfully, the swan didn’t make any contact with the woman but somehow managed to snatch the woman’s mask from her chin and ping it back into the place where it should be. The woman then fell backward in shocks then laughed.

The video captioned in French, “You have been told: wear your mask!” has been viewed 25 million times since being posted on Twitter on September 10. A person quipped, “Things I want to do when I see people like that walking close to me,” while another wrote: “Grave desire to do the same to people in college who keep it under their noses,”.

Use These Healthy ‘Sahur’ Tips By A Certified Dietitian For Everyone To Practice

Published

on

When the holy month of Ramadan arrives, many people definitely cannot wait to finally go to the Ramadan bazaar to buy their favorite food. Well, it is not often to see this kind of situation because the food that got sold in the Ramadan bazaar is actually difficult to get on a normal day and some of them are very popular during this month alone. Because of that, many people decided to buy a lot of them to be eaten during break fast and some others also eat the food that they bought at that time and eat it during ‘sahur’.

This kind of attitude usually will make them feel tired so much faster because they did not take the right type of food or even did not take the right amount of food that they need during ‘sahur’. In fact, calories are usually less so the nutrients are taken less when fasting. Let us see the healthy ‘sahur’ tips that have been shared by Salsabila Aznan who is a certified dietitian on her own Twitter page.

1) Compulsory Intake Of Quarter Half Portion

Some may say that eating rice could make us becomes hungry even quicker. It is true if you only eat rice with egg, you will get hungry quickly. Make sure half of the plate is vegetables and not rice. Vegetable fiber helps to make you feel full longer when you are fasting.

2) Take Source Of Protein

Protein is also slow to digest. If you want to eat dates, add a glass of milk to get a minimum of protein and carbohydrates. If you eat rice, you can take fish, chicken, tofu, or even eggs.

3) Reduce Processed Foods

Avoid eating nuggets, sausages or even burgers during ‘sahur’. The one who loves to eat ‘budu’ and also ‘cencalok’, try to reduce the intake. Foods that are high in salt make you thirsty quickly.

4) Minimum 2 Glasses Of Water During Sahur

This is just a suggestion. You can drink more than 2 glasses of water if you want to. Make sure to drink enough water during ‘sahur’ so that you are energized during the day.

5) Variate ‘Sahur’ Every Day

Nutrients depend on the variety of food types. Don’t just take oats every ‘sahur’. Or salad every day. Diversify the intake of carbohydrates, proteins, and also vegetables.

Johnson and Johnson Jab May Cause Unusual Blood Clotting

Published

on

BRUSSELS, April 21 – The European Medicine Agency (EMA) confirmed on Tuesday that there could be a link between Johnson & Johnson vaccines and very rare cases of blood clots, Anadolu Agency reported.

“A warning about unusual blood clots with low blood platelets should be added to the product information for COVID-19 Vaccine Janssen,” the EU regulator announced in a statement following the investigation of its safety committee.

But the EMA upheld its recommendation to use the jabs and confirmed that its benefits outweighed possible risks.

The investigation also concluded that “blood clots occurred mostly at unusual sites such as in veins in the brain (cerebral venous sinus thrombosis, CVST) and the abdomen (splanchnic vein thrombosis) and in arteries, together with low levels of blood platelets and sometimes bleeding.”

According to the EU agency, over seven million people received the product of the Johnson & Johnson pharmaceutical company and it caused serious blood clotting in eight cases.

The cases were very similar to the side effects of AstraZeneca’s coronavirus disease (COVID-19) vaccines.

In March, several European countries – including Sweden, Germany, France, Italy, Ireland, the Netherlands, Denmark, and Norway – suspended the use of AstraZeneca jabs for a while after blood clots were reported in some vaccinated people.

The EMA’s investigation also concluded on Apr. 7 that there could be a possible link between AstraZeneca vaccines and very rare cases of blood clots.

Similarly, the EU regulator upheld its recommendation on using the jabs since its benefits outweighed the risks.
