Healthy foods that protect you

World cancer day

Every year, 4th February is dedicated to spreading awareness about one of the deadliest diseases in the world – Cancer! This year, the tag line or theme so to say, is ‘Not Beyond Us’. It calls for a bolstered attempt at spreading awareness and highlights the importance of ‘early detection’.

According to world cancer day’s official website, solutions to curb cancer exist and are within our reach. World Cancer Day is a unique opportunity to raise awareness that there is much that can be done at an individual, community and governmental level, to harness and mobilise these solutions and catalyse positive change.

In order to stay protected and keep cancer at bay, there are a few things you must keep in mind:

1) Avoid Carcinogens

Carcinogens are substances that can damage or disrupt our body’s cellular metabolic process. One of the most common ways through which carcinogens can affect our body is through smoking, chewing tobacco, binge drinking etc.

What if games could help us to a brighter future?


“Games like World of Warcraft give players the means to save worlds, and incentive to learn the habits of heroes. What if we could harness this gamer power to solve real-world problems? Jane McGonigal says we can, and explains how.”

This TED talk, from 2010, points out an interesting argument about the continuously growing gamers society: what if the skills gamers use in virtual worlds, could be implemented in real world situations?

Berlin wall 25 year since the fall of it


From 1961 to 1989, Berlin was a city divided. The struggle between communism and capitalism defined the second half of the 20th century, but almost nowhere felt it more acutely than Berlin, which was split into East (communist) and West (capitalist) practically overnight. The Berlin Wall became perhaps the best-known symbol of the Cold War.

When the wall fell in 1989, it was an emotional and cathartic experience for many. People chipped off pieces as keepsakes and were able to see parts of the city – and family and friends – they’d not seen for years. Now, 25 years later, CNN is looking back on the impact of the Berlin Wall and its fall.

If you were there for the fall of the wall, we want to hear from you. Tell us what the experience was like, and share any photos or video you might have. How did the Berlin Wall affect your life, and how did things change once it fell? Do you have a piece of the wall? And even if you weren’t in Berlin at the time, we want to hear your memories from the period and how it affected you.

As today, 25 years ago, (in the 9 th of november 1989) the Berlin wall fell.
