It cannot be changed without changing our thinking." Albert Einstein A 1) K Ramasubramanian Mumbai "Today's (June 27) Collage is interesting. The piece on NRI returned is revealing to bring about social inequities besides economic elevation. This may be a small one, but Ganges starts only in trickles. Thank you Collage (As regards new beginning : "Collage in Classroom" started few days ago, will continue through July 2021. If comfortable, readers may share Excerpts with students of all ages among their contacts. Thanks -Warrier) 2) Dr Duvvuri Subbarao About Collage on Sunday Heartwarming stories and mood elevating reminiscences. Many thanks and best regards Subba 3) V Babusenan The once very popular book of Dale Carnegie 'How to Stop Worrying and Start Living' opens with the narration of an incident : One man, disgusted with life on account of continuous failures, decides to end it. He gets up very early and walks to the pier where from he would jump to the sea. There is no one on the road. The dawn is breaking open with a beauty that naturally does not impress him. Then he hears a voice : "What a fine morning!" He looks around to locate the source but finds no one. Then he looks down and locates the owner of appreciation. The words of joy came from a legless man who was crawling on the road! He returns and turns a new leaf in his life. Bertrand Russell in his autobiography mentions about an American lady who was a close relation of his first wife. She was a Quaker and very wealthy. Her meals would always be rich in content and variety. She told Russell that she would never start eating before giving a thought to the poor starving people! 4)Muthulakshmi Subramanian Story with a lesson,NRI complex thermometer and thermostat,tiger and donkey- all are nice. Story with a lesson is very touching B Personality : Ayn Rand https://www.theguardian.com/books/2017/apr/10/new-age-ayn-rand-conquered-trump-white-house-silicon-valley "The Fountainhead was serially rejected and published to ambivalent reviews, but it became a word-of-mouth hit. Over the coming years, a cult following arose around Rand (as well as something very close to an actual cult among her inner circle, known, no doubt ironically, as the Collective). Her works struck a chord with a particular kind of reader: adolescent, male and thirsting for an ideology brimming with moral certainty. As the New Yorker said in 2009: “Most readers make their first and last trip to Galt’s Gulch – the hidden-valley paradise of born-again capitalists featured in Atlas Shrugged, its solid-gold dollar sign standing like a maypole – sometime between leaving Middle-earth and packing for college.” Bonus : "Be Yourself" https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/readersblog/world-of-words/be-the-best-version-of-yourself-be-the-real-you-34254/ "Now meeting new people, making new friends has become my hobby, and working with unknown people as a team gives me super thrills and excitement. Every person has a different personality. Coping up with each one within a small period is a big task. You may not love everyone but you have to work as a team. It is not any different from doing a job and dealing with various people. However, the sole priority of this concept is how patiently we complete our duties towards the people we are implied to." C Collage in Classroom Human Body 1) Anatomy I https://www.livescience.com/37009-human-body.html 2) Anatomy II https://www.britannica.com/science/human-body DID YOU KNOW? The human femur* can support a weight thirty times that of the human body, making it even stronger than steel. The evolution of the human eyebrows is believed to have prevented the influx of sweat into the eyes. Chronic stress produces high levels of cortisol, which may cause damage to the hippocampus in the brain, leading to memory loss. An increase in the volume of background noise has been correlated with the perception of food as less sweet or less salty. The human nervous system can relay electrochemical messages at a rate of 249 mph (400 km/hr). *the large thick bone in the top part of your leg above the knee 3) Beautiful Human Body https://brightside.me/creativity-photography/25-retro-photos-that-capture-the-beauty-of-the-human-body-613960/ "When we think of something “retro” we imagine cars, music, clothes, and photographs of course. No one would argue that retro pictures are a pleasure to an eye. They have impeccable style, and people somehow seem to be simple yet elegant no matter what they're doing. The definition of retro style implies that new things show features of the past. We'd definitely like to have those body features that you're about to see in the following* pics." *Please open the link above. D Kitchen Appliances : Vathsala Jayaraman Chennai It need not be an American kitchen. Even in India we have many of the following appliances. Initially we are amazed at the swift functioning of these machines. But experience tells us of the dangers involved and the precautions we need to take.On many occasions we feel that our manual grinding stone and the bronze filter Amma had were far safer. Maybe it's just a small injury requiring some Neosporin and a bandaid. Perhaps it's worse and you're headed to the emergency room. 1 Coffee maker That's right. Everyone's least favorite insect — who can be carriers of intestinal diseases like diarrhea, dysentery, typhoid fever, and cholera — could be making their home inside your coffee maker. It's the perfect environment for cockroaches who love the dark, warm, and damp environment of the machine's water tank, which also happens to be the same environment mold, bacteria, and yeast prefer. So what do you do? : You can rectify all these disgusting situations by simply cleaning and disinfecting the machine on a regular basis 2.Immersion blenders Nobody can argue the handiness of an immersion blender. They save you the time of dragging out the big blender, and let you whiz up your sauces and soups right in their own pot. Another plus? They're super easy to clean.. unless you forget to unplug it first. The New York Times reported countless stories of home cooks slicing and dicing their fingers while trying to dislodge food from the blades of their immersion blenders, and that's because the power button has something of a hair trigger. 3 Microwaves Every few years the warnings start flying around social media: "Don't ever microwave water in a cup by itself!" these messages plead. "It's a recipe for disaster that will surely lead to burns and permanent scarring when the superheated liquid explodes in your face! Hyperbole? Maybe a little. But there is some truth here... The best way to avoid [them] is to place a wooden coffee stirrer in the liquid when heating it and also to let all heated liquids cool for a few minutes inside the microwave before removing them." 4 Toasters Hey, cockroaches have to eat, and what better place than that bottom tray where a three-course meal of crumbs resides? Because, really, when was the last time you actually pulled that thing out and cleaned it? If you had you probably would have seen the roaches, who, don't forget, can be carriers of all those lovely intestinal diseases. Just place the whole shebang in a sealed plastic bag, put it in the freezer for 24 hours, then shake vigorously and use a brush to dislodge any dead roaches. 5 Electric mixers How could an electric mixer be dangerous, you ask? Think about how tempting it is to stick a finger in the bowl while you're whipping up a batch of chocolate frosting. You get too close to those spinning beaters and next thing you know you're heading to the ER. Fingers aren't the only concern when it comes to mixers — long hair is a real danger, too. Four-year-old Arabella Schraeder learned that the hard way when she got a little too close checking the progress of the batter she was making with her family. The beaters grabbed her long locks and pulled her forward, hitting her face against the bowl and swiftly removing a large swath of hair from her scalp. Thankfully, she suffered no long term injury, but it's a good reminder to keep your tresses back when baking. 6 NutriBullets Anyone who's ever watched late-night television is familiar with the magical NutriBullet, and chances are good that you were sold on all its amazing smoothie- making abilities. But beware — there's one thing they might have forgotten to mention: Besides turning all your favorite frozen fruits and veggies into a deliciously nutritious puree, your beloved blender might also explode on you. 7 Instant Pots If you're like most people, you've fallen in love with the Instant Pot. After all, it can do just about everything. It can make breakfast, it can make dinner, it can even make yogurt. It can also grow maggots in its condensation collector. Yes, really. And if you don't know where the condensation collector is, you're probably in real trouble. This plastic cup is meant to collect the water that runs off the lid when opened, keeping the mess from dripping onto your countertop. If it's doing its job, it's probably moist and warm and contains some bits of food, which makes it just the right breeding ground for maggots. Basically, if you aren't cleaning (and drying) the condensation collector thoroughly after use, you're inviting maggots to come party in your kitchen. 8 Pasta machine Like electric mixers, you don't want to tangle with a pasta machine. Think of how effortlessly those rollers draw in big hunks of dough. Can you imagine getting a hand stuck in one? Unfortunately, Philadelphia chef Joe Cicala can. Hang onto your hats, because this one's a doozy. Chef Cicala was making pasta at his restaurant, but the dough wasn't behaving it was sticking to the rollers of the machine. Without thinking, he intervened. So, like an idiot, he reached in and tried to force it through the machine. All finger bones fractured and he needed a surgery to connect the nerve fibres. 9 Garbage disposals Not only are humans at risk of injury in the kitchen... cats are, too. Cats, curious as they are, also like to stick their paws into the drain just like their owners. And apparently, they have been known to inadvertently turn on switches. Running disposal + paw in disposal = one unhappy kitty. The Humane Society actually recommends installing switch covers for their safety (oh, and probably for kids, too).
