Dressed For The Part: What You Need To Know About Dress Codes

Dress codes are everywhere,  but do you really know what all of this “business casual” means? When in doubt, check out today’s infographic!

I think everyone can agree dress codes are a set of rules. What most of us don’t realize is that these rules are often unwritten. Of course, no one on their right mind would visit the Queen of England wearing tattered jeans and dirty converse, but every social function in-between isn’t that easy to dress for. Is that dress too tight for your cousin’s wedding? Are sneakers OK for a Wednesday at the office?

In the end, dress codes are a reflection of the values of a society as a whole. On the bright side, they bring cohesiveness to a group. On the other hand, they can also promote a one-sided vision of the world, one where being different isn’t a positive thing.

When thinking about dress codes, whether you’re the one following them or imposing them, it’s good to pose the important questions. Would this be discriminatory against someone´s religious beliefs? Does this rule come from a privileged (and often race-biased) point of view?

Although I’m not proposing a full-fledged rebellion against the system, these are necessary questions that more and more people are thinking about. For example, after the shooting at two Mosques in New Zealand in March 2019, a private school was prompted to explicitly allow its students to wear hijabs if they wanted to. On the other hand, more and more high school dress codes are being revised to acknowledge some discriminatory trends against female and black students, as well as ethnic minorities.

எழுத்தாளனின் எண்ணங்களில் இருப்பது ஏராளம், 
அவை அனைத்தும் எழுத்துக்களில் வெளிப்படுவதில்லை.

மாறாக  அவன் எண்ணங்களில் இருக்கும்
சிறு நினைவுகள் மட்டுமே எழுத்துக்களில் உருவகப்படுகிறது.

அணைத்து மக்களின் உள்ளங்களையும் உணர்ந்து
உணர்வுகளை உருவகப்படுத்தும் அவனால்,   
ஏனோ  அவனின் உள்ளத்தை  அவனால் முழுமையாக
உணரவோ, உருவகப்படுத்தவோ முடிவதில்லை. 

கனவுகளை சுமந்த இதயத்துடன், கவலையுடன்
கூடிய கானல் நீரான பயணத்தில் இவன்..

எதுவாகினும் எழுத்தாளன் சுயசிந்தனையாளனே..... MNA...

72 Ways To Think Visually

People often present ‘visual thinking’ as an inherent skill- either you have it, or you don’t. (And those who ‘have’ it are often portrayed as more creative and artistic than those who ‘don’t’.) But in reality, visual thinking can be learned and improved in a myriad of ways, such as coming up with new ways to conceptualize information.

Everyone learns in different ways, and it can be truly valuable to determine your learning style. But it’s not all nature; you can nurture your learning styles as well, and that includes picking up strategies to think more visually. Visual thinking, after all, isn’t just for your benefit- it can be a key method of presenting information to others in a clear and understandable way.

Some of these methods may already be obvious to you: most people have encountered a pie chart and a Venn diagram, after all. But there are as many ways of thinking visually as there are ways to configure a set of information. Charts like decision trees, abstract analogies like a speedometer or Chernoff faces, analogies like onion layers and bookshelves, and allegories like evolution or food chains can all help categorize, classify, and present information. The key is to pick which method works best for you, and adapt it for your particular set of facts.

Comali Review

Star Cast : Jayam Ravi, Samyuktha Hedge, Kajal Aggarwal, Sha Raa, KS Ravi Kumar
Director : Pradeep Ranganathan

Debutant director Pradeep Ranganathan's Comali takes us back to the '90s and conveys a much needed message on humanity which lacks in the technology driven current generation.

Ravi (Jayam Ravi) is a happy-go-lucky school going student in 1999. Just when he was about to propose his sweetheart Nikitha (Samyuktha), he met up with an accident and goes into a coma. Sixteen years later Ravi wakes up to find that his sister got married to his close friend Mani(Yogi Babu) and everything has been technologically upgraded in Chennai city.

But Ravi's life stuck in the past, he struggles to adapt to the modern life. Another major setback is that his skill set doesn't match the modern day job demand. To overcome the financial setback of his sister's family, Ravi agrees to work as a security at a museum where he finds his family statue which is now quite popular in the country as it belongs to ancient kingdom. But a crooked politician (KS Ravi Kumar ) tells the media that the multi crore worth statue belongs to him and not to anyone else. Now, Ravi should find a way to get the statue and get back his sister's property which was pledged in a bank to take care of his medical expenses...

What really works in Comali is the nostalgic recreation of the '90s time zone. The way Ravi's character sees today's world provide a lot of comic moments to the film. As usual, Ravi has done a fantastic job and given his all to the film. After a long time, it's good to see Yogi Babu in a well written role and boy, the actor brings the roof down with his sharp comic one liners. Yogi Babu can be even declared as the second hero of the film. KS Ravi Kumar is another major advantage for the film but his scenes in the latter part of the second half tests our patience. Kajal Aggarwal neither looks glamorous not performs well in a poorly written role.

While the first half of Comali is super engaging, the second half goes in various directions and moves away from the core theme. The climax looks forced although the message on humanity stays relevant.
Technically, Hiphop Tamizha's songs and background score are big asset. Richard M Nathan's cinematography is functional while the editing department is adequate.

Overall, Comali is a watchable comedy entertainer for its core theme and the climax message.

The Scariest Infectious Diseases Of Our Time

Every so often, a deadly virus swipes across the world resulting in millions of deaths. Some of them have been around for many years, yet we still have no cure for them. Although advancements in medicine have made treatment possible, another pandemic may very well be around the corner.

The world’s deadliest infectious disease in the last century has been the Spanish Flu. It’s a variation of the influenza virus that has caused anywhere between 50 and 100 million deaths worldwide. The strain responsible is the widely known H1N1 subtype. It’s also the main culprit in the recent outbreaks of the swine flu.

Another deadly virus that’s taken its toll in the last 40 years is HIV. Since the first clinical observation in 1981, it has caused over 35 million deaths and counting. Scientific breakthroughs have made the illness somewhat manageable, but it still remains one of the biggest threats to humanity.

With the constant movement of people across the globe, disease can be spread very easily in today’s world. Even though vaccines and immunotherapy can provide some relief, the threat of future pandemics remains very high. Ultimately, prevention and staying informed continue to be the greatest weapons in this battle.
