In the past few years, a trending topic around the world has been anti-aging. The research in the field is growing, and more and more businesses and investors are continuing to such research.
While the anti-aging research is still in its infancy, there are a number of things that a person can do to combat the sign of aging. Most of these things are preventative as that is the best that science can offer for now. Many factors impact the way we age. Genetics play a huge part in that, and it cannot be changed. At the same time, variables such as diet and exercise, as well as other lifestyle choices have an impact on aging as well, and those can be helped.
According to research, antioxidants are good for the body as they find free radicals while food rich in saturated fats, complex carbs, as well as added sugar and salt can slow down the metabolism which is linked to aging faster and less gracefully. Diet affects the human organism every single day, and that makes it one of the most crucial aspects of our lives to think about and improve.
An active lifestyle also fights the symptoms of aging. A stronger body and better blood flow prevents headaches, muscle atrophy and affects the mood of a person. Exercise has a strong correlation to longevity and being less prone to illness. Cardio exercise lowers chances of cardiovascular diseases and exercising the joins prevents arthritis which is a symptom of aging that affects most of the population.
For topical prevention of aging symptoms, sunscreen is highly recommended as UV damage is the main cause of sagging skin and hyperpigmentation that develops through the years. Applying cosmetic acids and products rich in antioxidants as well as adding moisture to the skin through oils can greatly improve the longevity, elasticity, and the overall health of the skin. That is why a focused skincare routine is recommended for both men and women.
Funny Viral Trends; the true effect of Sending a Sext the Wrong Recipient
It is bizarre, annoying and even disgusting when you are on the receiving end. The advent of social media, quick text messaging apps and chat application have come with their fair share of embarrassments and social accidents that make some laugh, surprised and even shocked. The act of sending a sext message; which is the internet shorthand for a sex message in text form is undesirable but comes as a reality of the internet and modern technology communication forms. Here are some of the hilarious sext messages ever sent on various media but largely caught on Twitter. Note that they may be hilarious or otherwise depending on where you are standing. The general audience will perceive them differently from the immediate people that the sext messages affected.
The first one trending currently comes from a Twitter user Sarah Hallowell @ Sarah Hollowell in a reply she wished to send to @ Nicole Cliffe. She tells Nicole that she at one point arranged a threesome that failed to happen; she sent a text accidentally relating to the threesome plans to another man that she had met online in the recent past. She says that she had no thoughts of having sex with that man and did not intend to sleep with him because she did not even like that man.
In another Twitter mishap, @collectdust in a reply to Nicole Cliffe says that a stepbrother sent a penis image to his mother. He remarked that she thought that the cell phone had lost its head because according to him, he says, he had actually sent the image of a puppy. The humorous part is that the stepbrother sent the image again just to prove that the phone had lost its mind.
@eppiciunto says that she sent a sext message to their fish tank cleaner asking why he never kissed her goodbye when she left. She had intended the message for her husband.
@hikatie says that her husband accidentally sent his ex-girlfriend who bears a name similar to hers the image of his cookie shortly after he had started dating her. The ex-replied that she would like to unsubscribe from the mailing list.
We are seeing more and more owners around the NFL who are unwilling to put up with players who are constantly expressing bad behavior. Dez Bryant was released by the Dallas Cowboys because his antics were not worth the money that they would have had to pay him. He would have been paid $16.5 million against the Cowboys cap in 2018. Jerry Jones is quoted as saying “Of course we pay Dez a lot of money, and he knows that. He’s as aware of it as anybody. He knows when you get paid that kind of money there’s high expectations in terms of the productivity.” Your text to link…
Dez Bryant has reportedly turned down an offer by the Baltimore Ravens of 7 million a year for three years. But now there aren’t many teams that are stepping up to take him on as a player for their team. Dez Bryant has wanted to stay in the NFL East so that he could play the Cowboys twice a year. No team in the NFC East has made an offer to him. Nobody else seems very interested in him either.
So why are teams not offering Dez Bryant a contract? Will McClay, who is the Cowboys VP of player personnel, has indicated that Brian is not able to get open and he has had a lot of inconsistent play with a lot of drops. So you can see, NFL teams are not willing to pay players big money for poor production. It all boils down to performance. NFL owners also do not want to put up with players who bring bad behavior and bad attitudes to their team. Although Dez Bryant only wants a one year contract with a great team, he may not be able to get that. One has to wonder if his bad attitude has more to do with his inability to get a contract rather than his skills as an NFL widereceiver.
Michigan high school student Isaac Couling did not expect to become an internet sensation when he arrived at the Madison Tournament on Saturday. As he was strolling across the green, Couling was attacked by an angry goose and the ensuing altercation quickly gained attention online.
The high school golfing tournament took place on Saturday at Wolf Creek Golf Course in Adrian, Michigan. Couling, a 16-year-old sophomore at Concord High School, was competing in the Madison Tournament. After he began playing the seventh hole, Couling was walking across the green with his golf bag when he veered dangerously close to the nest of a protective Canada goose. As he tried to avoid the nest, a furious goose ambushed Couling, chasing him across the green and knocking him to the ground.
The goose attack was captured by amateur photographer Devon Pitts, who shared the images on the Twitter account of Blissfield Athletics. The pictures were retweeted over 15,000 times and received over 40,000 likes. PGA.com even picked up the story, and Couling’s unfortunate encounter with the goose was featured on the site’s front page.
Couling is not the first human to go viral when confronted by a territorial goose. In March, a soldier at Fort Sill in Oklahoma caused an internet sensation when he was attacked by the fort’s resident Canada goose, Steve. Despite Steve’s bad manners, soldiers on the military base continued to feed the goose and donate materials for his nest.
Canada geese are well-known for their protective behavior towards their nests. April and May are nesting season for the aggressive birds, and they will defend their eggs and nestlings with violence if necessary. When encountering an angry goose, animal experts advise maintaining eye contact with the goose and backing away slowly. Never make loud noises as this will be perceived as a threat. Also, experts recommend not turning your back on an angry goose as this will encourage it to pursue you.
11-year-old Mason Ramsey has been a busy boy lately. Fresh off his performance at the famed Coachella music and arts festival, Ramsey, otherwise known as the Walmart Yodel Boy, announced his intention to perform at the upcoming Stagecoach festival. After spending time entertaining festival-goers in the desert of Indio, California, Ramsey will be coming back for an encore yodelling gig going for another round of fun. Ramsey rose to internet stardom when he was caught yodelling Hank Williams’ first hit, “Homesick Blues, outside of an Illinois Walmart.
Ramsey has been in some pretty good company while taking the stage on the festival circuit. Although the two festivals are at opposite ends of the spectrum in musical genres, both Coachella and Stagecoach attract some of the biggest stars in the business. Coachella’s lineup featured Beyonce, The Weeknd, and Cardi B, while Stagecoach boasts Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Florida Georgia Line, and Keith Urban. Although Ramsey’s Coachella performance came as a surprise when the tyke waltzed out on the stage in the Sahara tent with 18-year-old Los Angeles-based producer Whethan, the Stagecoach performance was revealed in advance of the festival. The precocious Ramsey announced his latest performance via Twitter, capitalizing even further on his internet fame.
Like all viral sensations, the story of Ramsey spread like wildfire. The performance that sparked the love happened on March 24 in his hometown of Harrisburg, Illinois. Originally posted on YouTube, the video picked up steam, and followers, when it hit the Twitter circuit. Singing in the aisles of Wal-Mart to performing at arguably the biggest music festival in the nation in less than a month’s time is impressive, even for a bow-tie wearing crooner.
Viral Internet trends are typically very fun trends that capture the attention of people all over the year. For those that are in the United States, most of the most popular trends tend to be started in this country. However, one of the most popular Internet trends today actually started in Japan.
As early as March of 2018, people in Japan started posting videos of themselves turning rolls of aluminum foil into very shiny and metallic looking balls. These balls are amazing to look at online as they look as if they are made of solid metal and would be very heavy. In reality, they are made of nothing more than foil and weigh no more than one pound.
The DIY project started in Japan among some school kids that discovered the unique craft and started to allow it to take off all over the world. They soon were posting it all over social media, YouTube, and other media channels, which has allowed it to go viral. Today, the activity is being copied by millions of people all over the world as they are looking to create their own version of the metallic balls (http://www.thisisinsider.com/aluminum-foil-ball-challenge-youtube-2018-4).
While it is a popular trend to watch, it is also a very exciting tend that can be considered a great competition. In fact, there is a new YouTube Challenge channel that is dedicated to this. For those that are looking to participate, there is a lot that someone can learn very quickly. There are literally thousands of videos online today of people trying this for the very first time.
All that someone needs is a roll of tin foil, some patience, and a source of heat. Once all of this is accessible, the roll of tin foil can be turned into a very polished-looking ball in a matter of minutes and can be something that they will hold on to and enjoy for years to come in the future.
A septet of stuntmen whom also happen to be fans of video games decided to combine their work with their pleasure and film a bunch of fight sequences. The video begins with Alex Iashioka dressed as one of the titular Assassins of the “Assassin’s Creed” franchise. Judging from the costume and the fact that he is skirmishing with men clad in attire and arms from America’s colonial period, it would seem this particular stuntman is fond of the Indo-British “Ratonhnhaké:ton” or “Connor” from the third game in the main Assassin’s Creed series.
“Connor” beats up on several soldiers, using a musket as a cudgel until the camera shifts to one soldier taking aim with a pistol. It is at this point that the second character appears in the short. A camouflage-pattern-clad soldier known for an eyepatch, a “FOXHOUND” patch, and his skills in close-quarters combat sneaks up on the soldier and dispatches him with a throw. Matt Scheib is dressed as Solid Snake, of the Metal Gear franchise, and fights with several modern soldiers until Bill Bussey’s Geralt, from The Witcher, appears to stab a gunman aiming for Snake.
The video then jumps time zones again, this time with Geralt taking on several men dressed for the Crusades. Just as he’s dispatched the medieval mooks, a masked man menacingly points a sword at Geralt’s back, distracted long enough for Ben Aycrigg’s Nathan Drake, from the Uncharted series, to sucker punch the masked marauder. After shaking his hand from having punched a metal object, Nathan tussles with several mercenaries. After a gunfire battle involving hiding behind cover, Nathan remains crouched behind cardboard only for the sounds of blades cutting into men and men screaming to fill the area. Nathan looks over his shoulder to see a man flying through a neighboring barrier then lifts his head only to see Tang Ngyuen as an axe-wielding Kratos from the “God of War” series butcher everyone in sight.
Twitter user Kelsey Fiona unwittingly started an hilarious viral trend when she tweeted that the world is in need of a Disney princess who has a yeast infection. This has spawned countless other tweets about traits people would like to see in future Disney princesses.
Some Twitter users mocked the tweet for its lack of comic structure, but most have decided to join in on the fun. Here is a sample of what they have been saying:
A user by the name of “lucifer” tweeted that what the world really needs is a princess who is falling asleep, or is calling a taxi cab, or is smoking a cigarette or is going to bed.
Greg Sheffer tweeted that what is needed is a princess that gets dumped by a jerk and who uses this as motivation to go to Harvard, where she becomes valedictorian.
A user by the name of “i love yusuke” was a bit more musical. This user tweeted that what is needed is a princess who is a dancing queen, who is young and sweet, who is only 17, and who feels the beat of the tambourine.
A user named “adam” tweeted that a princess who can’t do basic math is what was needed, while another user named “Bob Ross fan account” countered that a princess who takes 5-hour depression naps is what is truly needed.
A user named “nasmaraj” tweeted that the world needs a Disney princess who has Mesothelioma and who just might be eligible for financial compensation, while a user named “jovan” countered that it really needs a Disney princess that bit Beyoncé.
A user named “Roy” said that what is needed is a Disney princess who makes princes go crazy, but they can’t squeeze her, they can only see her. A user named “ryan” then tweeted that what is really needed is a princess who believes that Remy from Ratatouille could beat Stuart Little in a fight.
And it keeps going on and on.
One of the funnier recent internet trends is a highly debated subject about how a dog would wear pants. Yes, it is as ridiculous and far fetched as it sounds.
A meme was posted to the internet recently showing two different ways a dog could wear pants. Would it be on all four of its paws? Or would it just be the back two?
Since its debut, the internet has been split. People have jokingly tweeted that their families have been torn apart by this, referencing full on debates that they have had with them choosing sides. One photo even showed a family sitting at their dinner table, split to each side, trying to give their best reasoning on the dog pants wearing debate.
Other people fueling the fire to the meme have posted photos and videos of their dogs in both ways the pants are suggested to be worn. This has added to the debate showing certain types of dogs being more fond to wearing them one way over the other, with people now saying that certain dog breeds may like it while others do not.
The meme came to its peak though more recently, when videos were released by multiple authors giving long and drawn out arguments as to why a dog would favor wearing the pants one way over the other. Of course, this just led to a further debate in the comments of the Youtube videos themselves.
Overall, this is one of the crazier, more out there, and more wacky memes to hit the internet in recent times, but one thing is for sure…this debate is not over and might not ever be.
The internet can literally turn anything into a meme, no matter who the person is or where they are from. In the past, dark Kermit, Spiderman, and plenty more have gone viral. It all starts with one person who takes a funny picture of someone or something and spins it into something completely different. The responses, retweets, and additional comments are typically hysterical. It’s because it takes on a life of its own often. People will retweet something and add a new and hilarious caption.
The most recent viral meme on the internet is one of Pepa Pig. Pepa Pig is a popular bilingual children’s cartoon which features a family of pigs. They’re bright pink, fairly simplistic, and have quite the cult following especially among children. Someone grabbed a screenshot of a scene where Peppa the pig was hanging up the phone on Susie Sheep following a debate about whistling. Pepa was not happy, although that’s hard to see in the face of a cartoon.
People have given that screenshot a whole new meaning. It’s now being used to show what people’s are thoughts are anytime they’re annoyed on the phone. The retweets on Twitter have been hysterical. Some of the top tweeted ones are making fun of debt collectors, scammers who say you’ve won a cruise, and exes calling. The retweets are going viral. There’s just something about Peppa’s blank stare out into space that seems mildly annoyed. It’s something that many of us have caught ourselves looking like before. That’s why it’s the perfect picture to be paired with this newest viral meme.
As always, Twitter did not let any of us down. According to Buzzfeed, these memes got thousands of likes and reposts. It doesn’t look like it’s slowing down anytime soon. More people are chiming in to add their own annoyed Peppa memes. I can honestly say that I never imagined Peppa being turned into a meme. Now that he’s here though, it’s hard to imagine it any other way.
