Wheelchair

Anyone who owns a moving aid has their own story behind it. Sometimes, it might be due to accidents or old age. There are some people who also own moving aids because of their convenience and not because of any medical condition. They help you move from one place to another easily without getting tired. Thanks to developments in technology, such moving aids have become electric. They can be easily controlled by the help of some buttons. This makes them user-friendly as you don’t have to manually push the moving aid. There are so many companies that sell these moving aids and if you are not careful, you can get confused on which one to buy. If you are buying it for a loved one, chances are that you need to buy the best one out there. This is so that they are able to continue with their lives without much disturbance. Therefore, when buying a moving aid, you can use the tips below;

1. Body

People have different body structures and shape, this according to finding balance. If you put two people in a gym for almost four months, you will notice the difference in growth. This is the same logic you will apply when getting a wheelchair. You need to find a wheelchair that will be able to handle the person’s weight. You also need to consider the shape of their body. Ensure that they will comfortably fit in the wheelchair that you are getting. If you can, go with the person and let them get a feel of it.

2. Preferences

Another thing you should also consider is what their preference is. Everyone is entitled to liking something for different reasons. These reasons sometimes may never make sense to you but it is good if you respect someone’s taste and preference. If your loved one prefers an electronic wheelchair, try and buy them that one. It is of no use to buy something that will not be used in the long run. Some people take it very personally when you get them something they don’t like. If you are in such a situation, you shouldn’t worry because disabilityfriendlylv.com disability friendly has a variety of wheelchairs you can choose from.

3. Storage

The other thing you need to understand is that people who use wheelchairs are normal and can perform usual duties like driving depending on the extent of their injury. This means that when you buy her or him a wheelchair, it has to be foldable so it can be easily stored. When a wheelchair is folded, it creates more space for other things. The reality is that wheelchairs occupy a lot of space when they are not being used. If the person using the wheelchair also uses public means of transport, he needs somewhere he can be putting his wheelchair as he travels. This means that you should find out how and where it will be stored during this period.

4. Service and maintenance

You should never forget that a wheelchair has a lot of things that hold it together so that it can allow movement with ease. This means that it will require service from time to time. The reality is that sometimes it might also require repairs and replacement. That is why you should always ask about the maintenance costs. Sometimes, the maintenance cost might be expensive and this is not pocket-friendly. That is why it is very best for you to examine every type of wheelchair available and from that, you can settle on the type that requires fewer finances to maintain and service.

Strange Customs and Traditions from Different Countries

There are different kinds of customs and traditions which are celebrated around the world. You will be shocked to know about these customs if you did not know about it earlier. There is no doubt that these strange practices and traditions are still being observed around the world whether you believe it or not.

Most of the peoples who have a belief in these traditions, they usually appreciate them and those who do not care about them consider these traditions as taboo or inhumane due to their strangeness.

Here, I have listed 7 seemingly strange and mad traditions from around the world.

1. Tooth Filling in Indonesia

In Bali, a particular ritual is performed by both the genders before they get married. They fill two teeth. This is done to keep any negative or evil forces or characteristics like lust, anger, greed, stupidity, intoxication, jealousy, confusion away from the newlywed couple.

2. Blubbing Brides in China

In China, brides cry for about a month as a part of the wedding preparations. This strange culture is still observed in the Wuling Mountains by the Fuji living.

3. Baby Jumping in Spain

You will be shocked to know about this particular tradition of Spain. The residents in a small northern community take part in baby jumping called EL Colacho, to keep negative energy and devil at bay.

The male individuals are dressed as the devil run between and jump over small infants who are laid on mattresses along the streets.

4. Bayanihan in the Philippines

This tradition involves the practice of moving the entire house to some new location. Villagers gather together, lift the house and carry it over a long distance. This generally happens during predicted floods or landslides. They carry the houses on their back.

5. Welcome drinks in Fiji

Guests in Fiji, South Pacific are served with a strange drink which is made up of extracting roots and served in a wooden bowl or bucket. The drink is popularly known as ‘Kava’. Although, the drink is very mild still it is considered as narcotics in many of the countries.

6. Throwing away furniture out of the window, South Africa

South Africa celebrates its New Year eve in a totally different manner when compared to us. To ring in the New Year, people throw away their old furniture out of the window into the streets below.

However, this custom is monitored by police forces carefully to make sure nobody gets hurt when they celebrate this tradition.

7. Getting bitten by bullet ants, Brazil

In the Brazilian tribe of Sateré-Mawé, when a boy becomes matured, they are asked to perform a traditional dance while wearing gloves filled with lots of bullet ants.

This particular ceremony is very challenging and a difficult one because the bite of a bullet ant is one of the most painful insect bites in the world that is even hard to imagine.

You Should Not Believe in Astrology

You might have met different kinds of people, some have a strong belief in astrology while others may not. Astrology has nothing to do with what is going on in our lives and what’s supposed to happen next?

There are many astrologers out there who have made astrology business to earn money where they do nothing except making fool by giving them silly future predictions. To some people, astrology is meaningful while for some it is utter nonsense, who don’t believe in it.

We will tell you some of the points in this article, which will tell you why you should not believe in astrology.

1. Most of the astrologers are Con man

Most of the astrologers are con man, who tries to make a fool out of peoples by trying and selling their nonsense and useless future predictions in exchange of money.

This is a very common practice in India because many of the individuals are not well versed with the knowledge of astrology and therefore it becomes easy for them to fool them to make ill-gotten money.

2. Astrology gives No fruitful results

Whatever predictions come out of astrology is not always true. There is no warranty or guarantee that the predictions that have come out will be true. You will not be getting any cash back or redemption if it fails.

The astrologers never lose in this game because they never take the blame on them as they make their predictions based on astrological facts.

3. Astrologers try to make excuses when they are not able to deliver results

If the future predictions or astrology went wrong, fake astrologers try to simply put excuses instead of accepting their inability or failure. They will tell you things like that the timing was bad, you followed a wrong path or you misinterpreted the information.

They have a potential to mislead you very easily by explaining you and giving you thousands of lame excuses, but they will never admit or accept their mistakes which they commit and also they will not pay the money back to you.

4. Different astrologers, different opinions

You are already familiar with the fact that your star sign is the same and so is your position, but when you will go to two different astrologers, the will tell you a different story. There is no consistency in the findings of astrology, the more you will get involved in astrology, the more you will get confused.

5. Astrology is a Pseudoscience

Astrology is a superstition that has no proven track or record or any scientific evidence related to it. There is literally no material connection between the celestial objects and the fate and personality of individuals.

Most of the people believe in astrology while most of them not. Astrology is complete nonsense, it is not testable and it also does not provide any facts and evidence and moreover, it is not always true.

6. Mind Game

Mind Game

via: Medium

The most important reason why you should not believe in astrology is that it is a mind game, where astrologers play with your mind in order to make money. I am sure that most of the time you read your daily horoscope in the newspaper and you follow it,

Whatever it says and if you are not able to do what it says that information keeps revolving in your mind all the time till you complete that work. So, astrology is not healthy for your brain as it restricts you for some particular work, therefore, it should not be taken seriously.

8 Myths and Misconceptions About Pregnancy That You Should Not Believe

Myths and Misconceptions About Pregnancy

Well, the phase of pregnancy is a time of excitement and anticipation of so many things. You become overloaded with questions about the gender of your child, about their colour complexion, who will they resemble and what not and most commonly there are so many myths and misconceptions related to pregnancy that you should need not to follow when you are pregnant.

You might have common myths like If I drink coffee, will my baby be born with brown spots? If I look at the lunar eclipse, it will cause a deformity in my child? There are countless myths associated with pregnancy and most of them are even misleading.

Some of the remarkable ones are presented here. Have a look:

Myth 1: You should be ‘eating for two’ during your pregnancy

You should be ‘eating for two’ during your pregnancy

Fact: You must have heard this often that you should be eating for two while you’re being pregnant. But, this is not true, there is no evidence to show that you need to eat for two when you are pregnant. Any sort of overeating might be bad for you and your baby as well. What’s important is having a healthy and balanced diet.

Myth 2: Morning sickness only happens in the morning

Morning sickness only happens in the morning

Fact: It is a very common symptom that you might feel nauseated when you are pregnant, but it’s not like that you will be vomiting only during morning time. It can happen during any time of day and time due to the changes in your hormones.

Myth 3: You cannot fly during your first or last trimester

You cannot fly during your first or last trimester

Fact: This is again false. You can fly whenever you want. Some of the airlines won’t let you board the plane in your last trimester, because of the fear of the labour pain which you might get and that would affect the journey of others.

Myth 4: A bigger baby means a better and healthy baby

A bigger baby means a better and healthy baby

No, this is not always true. The average baby weighs about 7.5 lbs. Babies that are much bigger than that are more likely to suffer from diseases like obesity or diabetes in later life.

Myth 5: Pregnant women should keep away from polished furniture

Pregnant women should keep away from polished furniture

Fact: Again false. Polished furniture has nothing to do with your pregnancy, they are not harmful or have toxic implications on you and your pregnancy when you sit on them.

Myth 6: You can’t do sex, or lift up your head or touch your toes while pregnancy

You can’t do sex while pregnancy

Fact: All of the myths are false and a little weird too unless you have a specified medical condition and your doctor says you to do so.

Myth 7: You shouldn’t drink hot coffee while pregnancy

You shouldn’t drink hot coffee while pregnancy

Fact: Again this is totally false. Having a cup of coffee during your pregnancy would not arm your little baby. 

Myth 8: The baby’s position in the womb can tell you its sex

The baby’s position in the womb can tell you its sex

Fact: This is not true, just by looking at the baby’s position in the womb no one can guess about the sex of the baby. You just can’t predict their gender from outside the womb.
