Viral videos- BMW Transformer



I promise that you have never seen anything like this before! Letrons has unveiled a brand new full scale drivable BMW Transformer!

That’s right, it can be operated remotely and that includes the head, neck, arms and hands, and it has a light show that you won’t believe. Letrons is based in Turkey and it took 12 engineers and 4 technicians to put this masterpiece together. In a matter of only seconds, it transforms from a beautiful Beemer into a real life Transformer. The head actually comes right out of the roof!

They call it ANTIMON but what they should call it is just plain AWESOME! While it is a drivable vehicle, it isn’t yet prepared to be driven in traffic. They are looking at adding an electric engine to it and the company said that they do intend to sell it to the public eventually. They have yet to determine a price but you can bet it will be a bit hefty. It will also make you think twice before cutting off a BMW. You certainly don’t want this coming at you at the next red light!

At this point in time, the vehicle can’t walk when in Transformer form. Engineers said that it can be done however, as soon as they find a buyer. I’m sure there will be plenty of people lining up to grab one of these exquisite beauties.

Things you’ll need:
  • .cotton wool or two soft clean cloths
  • .bowl or sink of warm water

  • .fresh diaper and clean clothes (if necessary)
  • .bin or bucket for waste

  • .Undress him, leaving his diaper on.
  • .Wipe your baby's face, neck and ears with a damp wash cloth or cotton wool.
  • .Dry with more cotton wool or a dry cloth.

How to do a Facial at Home-Basic Home Facial-5 Steps to Facial at Home

It is very easy to do a facial at home following the simple steps given below. A facial once in 15 days helps to improve complexion, increases blood circulation, rejuvenates the skin and relieves tension. Your skin will feel refreshed and more alive naturally. Before doing a facial, keep all the ingredients ready, tie your hair back and then start.
Step #1 –Cleansing       
The first step in facial is cleansing. Remove all traces of makeup using facial cleansers suited for your skin type. You can use raw milk to cleanse your face. Dip cotton in milk and wipe your face to remove all makeup and dirt from your face. Use circular upward movements. Rinse thoroughly with plenty of water. If using store bought products, make sure that you use an oil free cleanser for oily skin and a milky or creamy cleanser for dry skin types.
Step#2  Exfoliating
The second step is to exfoliate. Exfoliation helps to remove dry skin cells on the surface. Use any natural homemade exfoliating scrub. Apply scrub to damp skin and massage gently focusing on forehead, chin and nose. Avoid skin around the eyes as they are very soft and sensitive. Exfoliation helps to remove dead cells and improve skin textures. It also helps to reduce large pores. Regular exfoliation reduces fine lines and wrinkles and keeps your skin much softer and younger.
Step#3 Steaming
The third step is facial steaming. Steaming opens the pores and helps to release  toxins and impurities built up on the skin. Bring water to boil in a big vessel. Remove from heat. With a towel forming a tent over your head, lower/lean your face over the vessel and capture the steam. Take care not to go too close as it might scald your skin.  You can add a tbsp of rose petals or lavender or thyme or rosemary to the water to get a stimulating cleanse. Steam for 10-15 minutes leaving a gap in between. Finish off by splashing cool water on your face. If you have problematic skin or have sensitive skin, consult  your skin specialist  prior to facial steaming.
Step#4 Facial Mask
The next step is to apply Facial Mask. Choose mask/packs according to your skin type. For oily skin, use mud/clay mask as it helps to absorb excess oil. For dry skin, use hydrating mask or creamy mask and  for sensitive skin use a light gel mask. Combination skin needs more than one mask to spot treat different areas. Place cotton soaked in rosewater or place cucumber slices on each eye and relax for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, wash with plenty of water.
Step #5 Moisturizing
The last step is moisturizing the skin. All skin types need moisturizing. Choose moisturizer suited for your skin type. For oily skin choose a light moisturizer or water based  product. For dry skin use a heavier, oil-based moisturizer. For sensitive skin, avoid  moisturizer containing fragrances or acids. Moisturizer helps to protect your skin and maintain the texture.
Get Started !! Give yourself a good and inexpensive facial at home with these 5 easy steps listed above.

Signs that child is being sexually abused


The worst of the worse nightmares for a parent is when their child is sexually abused. While we do everything in our control to ensure safety of our children, terrible things happen. Statistics and news will tell you that incidences of child sexual abuse are rampant. So apart from making sure your child is safe, what else can you do? You can know the signs of sexual abuse that you can watch out for and take timely action. Dr Shuchi Dalvi, child psychologist, explains a few signs you can watch out for.

  • Bruises: The first and most obvious signs of sexual abuse would be bruises on the body, specifically on the arms, from holding and using force. Now children can also get bruises while playing and jumping around. Pay attention and notice how often the child comes home with bruises.
  • Swelling in genital and/or chest area: One of the telltale signs is swelling or brusing in the genital and/or chest area. Also look out for scratches or signs of force around the areas. Also, redness in that area can mean pinching or rubbing.
  • Difficulty in sitting or walking: If your child finds it difficult to sit or walk, it could mean that she is being sexually abused. Check for bruises, or get her checked from a doctor at the earliest.
  • Has become quiet or secretive: One of the silent signs is your child become quiet and secretive. If your child does not feel comfortable sharing what happens at school or during the day when she is away from you, it should be a warning sign.
  • Acts ‘jumpy’: If your child has suddenly become very jumpy, panicky, and look afraid most of the times, then there’s something wrong. Also, if she is having trouble sleeping, or suffers from nightmares, you need to take it seriously. Talking to your child is the first step and then take it from there. Do not shy away from taking medical help if your child needs it. And of course, make sure the perpetrator putting your child through this is nabbed and put behind bars.

Cut down salt to reduce night time toilet

There is good news for people who need to wake up one or more times during the night to go to the toilet. Researchers have found that simply cutting back on salt intake can reduce such night-time trips. The need to pee at night or nocturia affects most people over the age of 60. Although it seems a simple problem, the lack of sleep can lead to other problems such as stress, irritability or tiredness, and so can have a significant negative impact on quality of life. The new study presented at the European Society of Urology congress in London suggests that a slight dietary tweak can help tackle the problem.Reducing the amount of salt in one’s diet can significantly reduce excessive peeing — both during the day and when asleep, the study said. “Night-time urination is a real problem for many people, especially as they get older. This work holds out the possibility that a simple dietary modification might significantly improve the quality of life for many people,” said lead researcher Matsuo Tomohiro from Nagasaki University in Japan.
The researchers studied a group of 321 men and women who had a high salt intake and had problems sleeping. The patients were given guidance and support to reduce salt consumption. They were followed for 12 weeks, and salt consumption measured biochemically. As a result of the intervention, 223 members of the group were able to reduce their salt intake from 10.7 gm per day to 8.0 gm per day. In this group, the average night-time frequency of urination dropped from 2.3 times per night to 1.4 times.In contrast, 98 per cent increased their average salt intake from 9.6 gm per night to 11.0 gm per night, and they found that the need to urinate increased from 2.3 times per night to 2.7 times per night. The researchers also found that daytime urination was reduced when salt in the diet was reduced. “This is the first study to measure how salt intake affects the frequency of going to the bathroom, so we need to confirm the work with larger studies,” Tomohiro said.
