Young Wives' Tales: New Adventures in Love and Partnership
The term ?wife” is fraught with conflicting connotations for many young women today. Although the word suggests companionship and commitment, it’s weighted with the knowledge that marriage is a male-dominated institution in which women have been subservient for centuries. In this provocative collection of essays, writers in their twenties and thirties discuss how they’re navigating the waters of sanctified long-term relationships. Juhu Thukral speaks of marrying to please her traditional Indian parents; Rachel Fudge wonders whether alternative ceremonies can lead to greater equality in marriage; Kate Epstein tries to balance motherhood with a career; Kristy Harcourt, a lesbian, discusses her ambivalence about marriage ceremonies; and Leslie Miller struggles with being identified as half of a couple.86% (13)
Improve your eyesight
Our Daily Challenge ... You can quote me on that! Eating carrots makes your eyesight better! Everyone has heard the old wives tale that eating carrots improves your vision. The tale is said to be especially true for improving night vision. Although this sounds like just another way for adults to get their children to eat their vegetables, there actually is some truth to this. Although, whether or not eating carrots will stop the need for ever wearing glasses is doubtful. The tale is based on the fact that carrots contain massive amounts of Beta-carotene. The Beta-carotene travels to the small intestine and there, it is transformed into Vitamin A. Vitamin A can be turned into the protein Rhodospin and this is a group of cells that is found in the retina that is very sensitive to light. The tale started during World War II. The British used the tale to say that their soldiers who were trained in finding enemy planes were eating carrots to help them see the planes better. They made up the lie so that their invention of radar could remain secret, therefore, giving them an upper hand in the war.Old Wives Tale.....
I always park in the "Grandfather's" driveway to walk across the street and up the hill to go and help with the goats. Yesterday late morning, this deer was munching on trees in broad daylight. My Grandmother always told me that "if you see a deer in the middle of the day, we are in for a big weather change"....... We got a HORRIBLE thunderstorm today....lost our power twice. We are to have temperatures "over 100 degrees" from Tuesday-Wednesday. News stations and papers are even giving warnings as to "what to do and how to take care of the elderly and pets" in this danger heat we are having. Maybe there is something to those old wives tales after all..... Much better when viewed LARGE.
Chazz Palminteri wrote the script for this excellent story of an Italian American boy (Lillo Brancato) who grows up in the 1960s caught between the strong influences of his blue-collar, straight- arrow father (Robert De Niro) and a Mafia chieftain (Palminteri) who is his all-purpose mentor. De Niro makes his directorial debut with this production and, except for a little stiffness, does very well by the characters and their world. The story does not go precisely where one might expect it to go: Palminteri knows better than to force the central figure to choose between the two most important men in his life, and he doesn't fill time with stock drama about crime or family conflict. Joe Pesci makes an extremely effective and uncredited appearance at the end as a man who doesn't have to do more than speak softly to communicate how dangerous he is. --Tom KeoghSee also:
