My virtual life is better than my real life (Sword Art Online analysis)
This is a short one, but here it goes. The most common use of technology and the one that’s been told a thousand times in entertainment is the use of virtual reality; a world more immersive then the world we live in now and if we die in the virtual world, we die in real life. Big stuff. For psychological reasons, many of us want to escape. We do it every time when we return home from work, from a date, from a scary hospital and we want to look at kittens for relief. It’s popular, but it’s a suicide at large if you think about it. Whether you liked Sword Art Online or not and how it’s gaming references and love story experiments such a gathering, elements in the show portray a double jeopardy into how we see ourselves as different people and how we wish to spend the rest of our days. The individual’s life serving in an alternate reality increases when they break limitations they never thought they could do before, gaining skills, dressing up, traveling anywhere, and fighting monsters. Using a helmet and connecting the consciousness into a video game where millions of others can meet up is a growing trend, but it also serves as a means of going to a world after death through means of killing the player (if the player has no desire to live in the real world and wishes to have more time to be in a world that's meaningful). Hence the story of SAO when the creator traps players in the game with no way of turning off the game or they’ll die. Many of the main characters and other players in the game, some of them are carefree of the idea, most of them question their lives of how they will adapt in a video game while their bodies in the real world decay slowly. Addiction, confusion, low esteem, anxiety, and physical and sexual behavior are signs of playing so much and the characters show these. Kirito is a loner in the real world and the virtual world and is scared easily when players ask him to join a guild and flirts with some of the women. Other players are at risk because higher leveled creatures and players roam around twenty four hours a day. Their personal heaven. And I don’t even want to imagine what happens to their blander and bowels in the game. But even when the desperation sets in, Kirito and company still help players and not want any of them, who are weak to carry out their own lives while playing a game, to feel like they're scared. Kirito shows these signs very consistently, and he himself is someone who has had a troubled past and his two year coma is a way of going out. At least until he wakes up.
Hyaluronic Acid - The Natural Skin Plumping Sugar
Despite its tough pronunciation and even more complicated spelling; hyaluronic acid is an important part of your daily skin care routine. It's widely used in serums, sheet masks, and moisturisers. This is because HA, a naturally occurring molecule in the skin, binds to water and plumps the face, giving it a dewy, glowing appearance. It's clear that word of its benefits has spread, as it's one of the most sought-after ingredients in skin-care products. Aside from increasing skin moisture levels, hyaluronic acid serves other functions. What is hyaluronic acid, exactly? Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar molecule in the skin that helps water bind to collagen, keeping it in place and giving the skin a plumper, dewier, and more hydrated appearance. Essentially, hyaluronic acid improves skin hydration, which helps to maintain the skin's youthful, full, and bouncy appearance. Collagen in our dermis determines the structure of our skin. Natural hyaluronic acid is covalently linked to water molecules on one side and collagen on the other, providing plumpness to the skin. What is hyaluronic acid's function? As we age, our collagen and hyaluronic acid levels gradually decline, causing our skin to become increasingly dry. Furthermore, winter heaters, specific skin care products, and underlying skin disorders can cause microscopic tears in the protective skin barrier, allowing water to escape. As a result, implementing a customised skin care regimen that includes moisturising products could be extremely beneficial. Hyaluronic acid, glycerin, colloidal oatmeal, urea, propylene glycol, and sorbitol are humectants, which draw water to the skin to hydrate it. These chemicals can be found in a variety of products, such as moisturisers, eye creams, and serums. The use of HA-containing products tightens the skin around the eyes, increases moisture to reduce puffiness, and softens fine wrinkles throughout the face. Hyaluronic acid is effective when applied topically due to its ease of penetration. Our skin is the largest organ in the body, soaking up up to 60% of the nutrients applied to it. Furthermore, the lightweight, fluid nature of hyaluronic acid, as well as its ability to retain moisture from the environment and deeper dermis to completely hydrate the skin, are benefits. Who should benefit from hyaluronic acid? All skin types benefit from hyaluronic acid. It is non-irritating in general and does not aggravate acne, rosacea, or allergic skin conditions. However, there is a very small chance of experiencing any negative consequences. Individuals with dry and/or older skin will benefit the most from the application of hyaluronic acid. Because our bodies produce less hyaluronic acid as we age, people in their forties and fifties will benefit the most from applying it topically. Despite the fact that the term "acid" appears in the term of hyaluronic acid, those with sensitive skin should not be worried; it is completely safe for everyone. Because hyaluronic acid is naturally produced in our bodies, there are no known side effects from using it. If you have an allergic reaction to it or a product that contains it, contact your dermatologist immediately; the reaction could be caused by another active or inactive ingredient. Injectable Hyaluronic Acid Injections of hyaluronic acid are also available. Hyaluronic acid is a gel-like substance found in dermal fillers that attracts water after injection to replenish volume and restore lost structure. This helps to smooth the appearance of lines and wrinkles while also reducing the overall sunken or drooping appearance of the face. These dermal fillers can be used to treat nasolabial folds, marionette lines, cheek augmentation, chin augmentation, undereyes, lips, and back of the hands, among other things. Because the quality of fillers varies, it's critical to consult with your dermatologist about your options to ensure you get the best one for you. A cosmetic surgeon compares different types of hyaluronic acid fillers to different types of paintbrushes. They all contain the same component, but the density, lift-ability, and durability of the molecules vary depending on their size and arrangement. Additionally, it is reversible. Because it is injected into your face, it is not permanent. Because hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are reversible, your dermatologist can dissolve the filler quickly using the enzyme hyaluronidase if you are dissatisfied with the results or if a blood artery is blocked during the injection process. The enzyme works quickly; the substance dissolves quickly and is completely destroyed within 24 to 48 hours. Individuals who are allergic to bees, on the other hand, should proceed with caution — and consult a dermatologist — before attempting hyaluronidase-based therapy because the enzyme is found in bee venom. Hyaluronic acid fillers, on the other hand, are not for everyone. Except for pregnant women, the vast majority of people can benefit from hyaluronic acid fillers. Pregnancy and fillers have not been thoroughly studied, but dermatologists generally avoid injecting pregnant women due to uncertainty. Furthermore, if you have a current skin infection, you should avoid these fillers. First, treat the infection, and then return to your appointment once your dermatologist has given you the all-clear. If you're thinking about using hyaluronic fillers, there are a few minor risks to be aware of. Bruising and swelling are the most common side effects of any injectable treatment. The good news is that these shortfalls will only last a short time. Tenderness should subside within a few days. To reduce the risk of bruising, blood-thinning medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and red wine should be avoided for about a week before treatment. Furthermore, arnica and bromelain may aid in the reduction of swelling and bruising.
Would You Rather: Be A Polyglot Master Or Musical God?
It's time for the Funny Community's 'Would You Rather?' game! At the end of every week, I ask you guys to decide between two very strange things. Last week, I asked you to choose between telepathy and telekinesis, and out of 72 votes, the winner was... TELEKINESIS! This week, I want to know: Would you rather know how to speak all the languages of the world or know how to play every musical instrument? If you know all the languages, you'll be able to speak to whoever you want to - and probably land some pretty cool jobs! But if you knew all the musical instruments, you could probably start your very own one-man band! So which rare ability would YOU rather have?

Dimpleplasty - Get Dimples With A Quick And Easy Procedure
Cher, Mario Lopez, and Jennifer Garner are all famous for their dimpled smiles. They recently inspired fans to get their own dimples. “Everyone in Hollywood has them, and everyone wants them,” say plastic surgeons. Men who want the “Mario Lopez” look are also interested in the procedure. So, what is Dimpleplasty? Natural dimples are caused by skin adhering to underlying tissue. If someone smiles, a dimple appears. While some dimples last into adulthood, many disappear as a child grows and the cheek muscle matures. The latest cosmetic surgery trend is Dimpleplasty in Mumbai. Cosmetic surgeons now create four times as many dimples as they did a few years ago. What is Dimpleplasty? A tiny incision inside the patient's cheek creates dimples. No cuts on the outside of the face. The remaining cheek muscle is sutured to the skin's underside with dissolvable suture. An incision on the inside of the cheek creates a dimple. One local anaesthetic is used for the entire outpatient procedure. The dimples will be deeper at first, but will look natural after a few months. Initially visible whenever the patient smiles, the dimples gradually fade away. What is the Dolly Dimple? Dr. Siddharth Prakash, one of the few cosmetic surgeons who offers the service, says the “Dolly Dimple” is an updated version of the original dimple creation surgery in Mumbai that is more predictable. "Dimples can be more personalised," said Dr. Siddharth. “Patients can design their own dimples, long, short, deep, shallow, etc.” The patient can also choose the location of the dimples on their cheeks. Dimples are cute and brighten a person's smile. They are even lucky in some cultures.
Jesus: Prophet of Peace and Love or Purveyor of Fear and Hate?
Multitudes of Christian commentators over the past two millennia have proclaimed the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth to be unsurpassed tenets of spiritual wisdom and unexcelled guidelines for living a morally responsible life.  Hundreds of millions of devout believers are absolutely convinced that they will conquer death and attain everlasting life because God sacrificed his son for their sins. They are also convinced that Jesus didn’t really die. He was restored to life and subsequently ascended to heaven to spend eternity with his father, and soon Jesus will return to Earth to judge the wicked and rapture righteous believers up to heaven with him. Countless books have been written extolling the allegedly commendable features of the “Christian worldview” and the “Christ-centered life,” but, by contrast, few authors have examined the unsavory side of Jesus’ personality and his less than-meritorious behavior and opinions. For this presentation, I’ve formulated, in a balanced fashion, two sets of ten principles based on Jesus’ pronouncements. Although his directives come from the canonical gospels (the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John), additional documentation is abundant elsewhere in the New Testament epistles and letters. The twenty precepts are listed along with the supporting Bible verses from which they derive. The cited verses and passages appear in this separate article. This scriptural evidence will enable readers to answer for themselves the binary question that is the title of this article. NB: This article is not made assuming Jesus literally indeed existed, but an evaluation of the character of the Abrahamic religious texts.

How To Pick The Best Plastic Surgeon For Your Rhinoplasty
Recent advancements in cosmetic surgery have allowed surgeons to achieve more natural, aesthetically pleasing, and elegant results. But no amount of advanced technology or surgical techniques can replace a skilled facial plastic surgeon's artistic eye and skill. Simply put, not all surgeons are equal. This is especially true of Rhinoplasty (also known as a "nose job"). The nose, along with the eyes and smile, is one of the most noticeable facial features. While you want a surgeon who will perform a safe procedure with minimal recovery time, you also want a surgeon who has the experience, artistic ability, and knowledge of nose anatomy to produce a stunning result. However, some surgeons lack the training and experience required to perform exceptional facial surgery. It is better to find out well before surgery! Before choosing a surgeon for your Rhinoplasty in Mumbai, do your homework well. Find out about the procedure and the surgeon from those who have had a successful Nose Job. Check reviews and inquire. Your experience will suffer if you are afraid to ask questions or communicate clearly. Before selecting a surgeon for your Rhinoplasty, consider asking her/ him the following: What are your qualifications? You can usually look up a surgeon's education, training, and board certifications online. A lack of a website by your plastic surgeon may be a red flag. Choose a Board certified surgeon. These surgeons have undergone extensive specialised training and are truly dedicated to facial plastic surgery. The number of rhinoplasties performed? A good surgeon will have performed hundreds, if not thousands, of these procedures over the course of his career. Like anything else, practise makes perfect. Choose a surgeon with the "numbers" to develop advanced technique and expertise. Please share your before and after photos? This is a fair and common request. Verify that your surgeon's photos are of actual patients, not stock photos. This will help you understand the surgeon's skills. Please show me some happy Rhinoplasty patients' testimonials? Reputable surgeons should be able to easily produce patient testimonials and before and after photos. If a surgeon refuses to provide these, he may simply lack them. Can you make my nose look like a famous person's? If you have a celebrity "nose crush," ask the surgeon if you can have your nose shaped like theirs. Be wary of a surgeon who claims to be able to duplicate another's nose. It may not be possible or desirable to give you an exact copy unless your nose and face share the same shape and bone structure. Responsable nose surgeons will work with you to develop a plan that meets your needs while remaining realistic. What is the procedure's cost? The cost of Rhinoplasty in Mumbai should be fairly consistent if you choose surgeons with similar levels of expertise. If a surgeon quotes you a price significantly lower than others, proceed with caution. You get what you pay for in life, and a Rhinoplasty is not something you want to skimp on. While a new, well-done nose can boost patients' confidence, a new, poorly done nose can do the opposite. Remember that paying another surgeon to fix it later isn't saving you any money.
What Every DWI Attorney Needs To Do Before Fighting Your Case
Before fighting your case, your DWI attorney needs to file a notice of appearance with the court and this is extremely important. However, he or she would also need to complete other formalities too. Presenting a notice of appearance stating that your DWI attorney will be representing you along with a set of other documents to the court is extremely important since your lawyer would not be allowed to fight your case without them. Typically, these documents are supposed to announce that your lawyer is going to fight your case on your behalf for the first time. These documents contain certain important details about you and your case. WHAT SHOULD BE PRESENTED? Along with the notice of appearance, your lawyer should present not only audio recordings but also witness statements and names, video recordings, the police report, etc. to the prosecutor. It is compulsory to present these items so that the court can use them in your case. However, in a DWI case, your DWI attorney has to also present any other pieces of evidence that he would like to present before it is too late. Moreover, specific requests also need to be made that reflect the specialized areas of the DWI laws and defense. PHOTOS OF THE BREATH-TEST MACHINE The most important items that can help you fight your case after practicing on them are the photographs of the breath test machine and its inner workings. When you request these materials in a notice of appearance, it is a great way to begin the preparation for fighting your case. Moreover, when you request them, you can practice arguing with your attorney as if you are talking to the prosecutor. Your DWI Attorney could even request other photographs such as those of the area where the accident took place or where you were stopped with the notice of appearance. PRESERVATION OF SAMPLES Blood samples are sometimes gathered from you in DWI cases by the police officer who arrested you. These samples must be preserved and requested by your lawyer to fight your case while filing the notice of appearance. There is also a possibility of requesting a retest if you want at a later date. You should request your lawyer and send it to the state laboratory so that it would be done whenever you want the results to be sent to the court. THE QUALIFICATIONS OF WITNESSES You can call upon expert witnesses in case you want them to appear in court to help you fight your case. These witnesses could include state toxicologists, breath test technicians, expert DWI officers, etc. It is important to know their qualifications before you can call them to represent you in court. Also, it is important that you request these pieces of evidence in case of requesting a notice of appearance through your attorney. If you do not know the qualifications of those who are going to stand as witnesses in court, you would end up looking as if you have not prepared yourself well for your case.
Cover up (Fairy Tail analysis)
Once upon a time, there was an anime series that presented a world of magic, knights, talking creatures, and sweaty people with rare dice. There isn’t any in this realm, but there are other shenanigans running around in Magnolia and within the Fairy Tail guild, such as fish, and ass kicking. This was a show I wasn’t fond of, but of course like all interesting aspects of storytelling, there is one that kept my thinking as I watched the characters progressed and that is the outfits and how they cover up the vulnerabilities, leading to empathy from the audience. Magic is the most useful element carried out by members of the Fairy Tail guild and each one wears certain types of clothes. The classes show different magic powers and helps them become capable of handling situations with no problem, but when all magic energy drains, the battles between mages ends up submissive. That’s when the emotional side of the mages start to show, which gives them an extra boost during a time of either losing or dying. This is when we get to see the main characters open up. Not only do the outfits and classes represent who they are, but also allows them to hide secrets from their past. Lucy is a happy outgoing girl who uses celestial magic (summoning) to help her in battle and is very enthusiastic in the Fairy Tail guild. She’s caring, supportive, and calls the Fairy Tail guild her home. But due to her rough past with her father and the reclusive life as a princess and not interacting with the outside world, she is a prisoner in her own mind and working as a celestial wizard covers up her past. She had maids who help her throughout her days in a mansion, and was under the many social norms and didn’t actually make friends. When her father sends a guild of wizards to stop the Fairy Tail guild and take her back and watches her friends beaten, she falls in denial and eventually goes back to her father. Another thing to mention is the clothes she wears. Most of them are causal and often exotic, whereas the clothes she wears back at her home is formal, and respectable. As Lucy confronts her father and listens to his rules, she rejects his offers. We see Lucy grow stronger when she is a wit’s end and not giving in. Perhaps one of the strongest female leads in the series, Erza is without a doubt Fairy Tail’s knight in shining armor. She is also hardheaded and is the drill sergeant of everyone. She keeps a strong composure of her feelings inside when she wears her armor. When shes alone Erza is comfortable in her own skin without the armor. Her magic armor and her strict behavior shows us her that she has gone through abuse as kid. She was a slave and worked in forced labor along with other children and was mentally scarred when the other slaves rebelled and started to kill some officers. One of her fellow slaves taught her that the only to survive is learn how to fight back physically and this made her stronger as she aged. She is afraid to express her shame, sadness, and isolation and the armor she picks up is to unite her heroism and cover up her frame of mind. Gray is a super laid back dude with a lot of buff, and has scars and bruises to prove it. Even without wearing a shirt. To me, there’s an opposite direction for Gray as compared to the other characters I’ve mentioned. Gray fights best without a shirt on and goes to the extreme with recklessness. Some members of the guild tell him to put clothes on because it’s embarrassing and sometimes pushes people away. The striking part about Gray is since he’s an ice wizard, he wears a jacket and shirt, especially when he was training to become one as a kid. Covering Gray’s skin allows warm comfort and Juvia, another member of the guild who has a crush on him, is his saving grace and knowing that it’s okay to commit to others for support. Natsu has a piece of clothing that keeps his past hidden and that is his scarf wrapped around his neck. And his neck is a weak point much like every other human. The scarf acts like a band-aid and he doesn’t go anywhere without it. Like a stuffed toy from childhood and letting it go is hard, even if it has some bad stains. Clothes are like masks and the style represents who you are and then there are the ones that are plain and hardly shows whats on the inside. Everyone has a costume. And it’s interesting to see how one evolves.
