    Fact of the Day

    Fact of the Day - PHOBIAS Did you know... that children automatically develop parental phobias? Although there is some evidence children are more likely to develop phobias if their parents have them, having one or both parents diagnosed with a phobia is just one of many risk factors. You can also develop a phobia from watching a stranger have a bad experience, such as falling down a flight of stairs, or from seeing something unfortunate happen to someone in a movie. As some believe both nature and nurture play a role in phobia development, it is not surprising that much depends on other adults' influence in the child's life, the child's individual personality and how parents present their phobia in the home. Myths about phobias and other mental health disorders are rampant, and information gathered from family or friends may be inaccurate. If you have a fear affecting your life, consider seeking professional guidance. With proper treatment, you can successfully overcome most phobias.

    Fact of the Day

    Fact of the Day - GRAPES Did you know... that table and wine grapes are different? It's natural to assume that wine is made from the type of grape that you see in your local grocery store. According to Wine Spectator, this isn't the case. Table grapes, or those you eat raw, are distinctly different. They have a thin skin, and over the years, farmers have bred them to be seedless or have very small seeds. Wine grapes, on the other hand, are smaller and have thicker skins and lots of seeds. It requires about 90 pounds of grapes to make five gallons or about 25 bottles of wine, according to Wine Maker Magazine. That equates to more than three and a half pounds of grapes per bottle. Other uses for grapes include grape juice, grape jelly or jam, and drying grapes to make raisins. Some people also use extracts from grape seeds for medicinal purposes. Grapes are used to help cure asthma indigestion, migraine, kidnеy disease and fatigue.

    Anime You've Recently Completed?

    It's not that hard to be the best SAO season when everything prior was mostly garbage. The namesake SAO arc lasted for only 8 episodes not counting the 6 random side-story episodes tossed in that made the series time skip every episode. Then it moved on to Alfheim which reduced Asuna from one of the top fighters into nothing more than a damsel in distress getting sexually assaulted. From this point the show became all about Kirito's harem. Even Kirito's cousin who was raised like a sister to him wants to bang him. Then it went to a 3rd game in which Kirito manages to go from n00b to OP in no time again and somehow goes into a gun fight with a lightsaber and come out on top. Then it jumps back to the second game for some light hearted fun before the season ends. So yeah Alicization is the first arc that actually took it's time, laid out the world, didn't jump around, and didn't have Kirito taking a Sword to a Gun fight. It's also an arc that is going to stick around for 4 entire cours, when no arc before it lasted more than 1 in a row.

    Part 1 of Sword Art Online: Alicization finished airing on Toonami last night. I'll be honest... this has been the BEST SAO season since S1 IMO. Just AMAZING in general. I can only hope this continues whenever Part 2 starts airing.

    Hi

    What?
  14. Have you ever watched any movies from Bollywood or India. If yes, which movie. Your thoughts on it (Story-plot-acting and emotions of actors-cinematography). Do you think is there an anime which can be made into a Bollywood movies. Do you enjoyed the musicals interrupting your story, Do you get them (The musicals and purpose in that particular movie). Is there anime with lots of drama and which can be made into a live action without much help of CGI. Thank You!

    Anime you're currently obsessed with?

    I am currently watching Pokemon (Dubbed). I always wanted to watch it to the end when I was a kid. Usually I watch them subbed (preffered) but, when I started in subbed I cant seem to adjust satoshi as ash and started watching dubs and believe me I am hooked up. A grown up doing masters and watching pokemon same time.

    Fact of the Day

    Fact of the Day - TYPEWRITERS Did you know... that typewriters fall into five classifications? The standard typewriter was the first kind manufactured. It was too heavy (15-25 lb or 5.6-9.3 kg) to move often, so it was kept on a desk or typing table. The standard typewriter had a wider platen (a rubber-covered, steel cylinder for absorbing typing impact) in the carriage (the part that moved the paper into place) that could hold oversized forms. The portable manual typewriter was smaller in size, lighter in weight, and equipped with a carrying case for easier movement and storage. Portable typewriters were popular for home and school use. Electric typewriters were heavier than standard machines because of their motors and electrical parts. Electric machines made typing easier because less effort was needed to strike the keys. Electric portables were smaller and lighter than desktop machines, and they had carrying cases with storage for the power cord. The most recent kind of typewriter to be produced—the electronic typewriter—eliminated many of the disadvantages of both standard and electric machines. Circuit boards made the electronic typewriter much lighter (about 10 lb or 3.7 kg) than other models. Personal word processors (PWPs) were closely related to computers. Writing machines were built as early as the fourteenth century. The first patented writing machine was made in England in 1714 but never built. The first manufactured typewriter appeared in 1870 and was the invention of Malling Hansen. It was called the Hansen Writing Ball and used part of a sphere studded with keys mounted over a piece of paper on the body of the machine. Christopher L. Sholes and Carlos Glidden developed a machine with a keyboard, a platen made of vulcanized rubber, and a wooden space bar. E. Remington & Sons purchased the rights and manufacture began in 1874. To avoid jamming typebars with adjacent and commonly used pairs of letters, Sholes and Glidden arranged the keyboard with these first six letters on the left of the top row and other letters distributed based on frequency of use. Their "QWERTY" system is still the standard for arranging letters. The first Remington typewriter only printed capital letters, but a model made in 1878 used a shift key to raise and lower typebars. The shift key and double-character typeface produced twice as many characters without changing the number of typebars. By 1901, John Underwood was producing a machine that had a backspace, tab, and ribbon selector for raising and lowering the ribbon. George Blickensderfer produced the first electric typewriter in 1902, but practical electric typewriters were not manufactured until about 1925. In 1961, International Business Machines (IBM) introduced the Selectric electric typewriter. From about 1960 to 1980, the standard typewriter industry in the United States withered away. The IBM Selectric II debuted in 1984, but IBM stopped making electric models in favor of the electronic Wheelwriter in the early 1990s. By this time personal computers were becoming more popular. By the late 1990s, most of the manual typewriters supplied to the United States came from three firms. Olympia in Germany makes standard portables, Olivetti in Italy makes a standard office typewriter and two portable models, and the Indian firm Godrej & Boyce Manufacturing Company is the largest producer of manual typewriters.

    Fact of the Day

    Sorry for the days I don't post. I'm going back and forth to the hospital to see my husband and posting here doesn't come to mind when I get home and am tired. Anyway, onto today's fact. Fact of the day - HOTELS Did you know... that the Nishiyama Onsen Keiunkan in Yamanashi, Japan, holds the Guinness World Record for being the oldest hotel in the world? The hot-spring hotel sits at the foot of the stunning Akaishi Mountains and has been in operation since it was founded by Fujiwara Mahito in 705 A.D. Since then, it’s been in the hands of some 52 generations of the same family for more than 1,300 years. The Keiunkan lies at the foot of the Akaishi Mountains. Since its foundation, the hotel has had all its hot water sourced directly from the local Hakuho Springs. The hotel was last renovated in 1997 and has 37 rooms.

    Fact of the Day

    Fact of the Day - BIRD NESTS Did you know... that bald eagles build strong nests and use them year after year? They make improvements and add to the nest, it can weigh over a ton! The largest eagle nest was 20 feet deep and estimated to weigh 2 tons! Some birds will use abandoned homes from other animals. Burrowing owls have been known to use abandoned prairie dog burrows to raise young. Unlike eagles, great horned owls reuse nests built by other species and don’t make any improvements before moving in. It’s not unusual for their nests to collapse. Blue-gray gnatcatchers makes their nests out of spiderwebs and lichen - and they didn’t even take basket weaving in college! Ruby-throated hummingbirds have nests about the size of a thimble. Red-cockaded woodpecker nest in cavities that can take years to construct in a living tree. (But they sometimes have help.) They live in groups and will have as many as four helpers. Gyrfalcons can use theirs for generations- one was discovered to be over 2,500 years old. They use rocky ledges or old raven nests. Piping plovers make shallow depressions on the beach with a few twigs. Despite the lack of coverage, their nests can still be hard to spot because they are so well-camouflaged.
