Cinco de Mayo is a celebration held on May 5. It is celebrated in the United States and in Mexico, primarily in the state of Puebla, where the holiday is called El Día de la Batalla de Puebla (English: The Day of the Battle of Puebla. Mexican Americans also often see the day as a source of pride; one way they can honor their ethnicity is to celebrate this day.

The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican army‘s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín. In the United States, Cinco de Mayo is sometimes mistaken to be Mexico’s Independence Day—the most important national holiday in Mexico—which is celebrated on September 16.

  1. Maintains the Blood Pressure Levels:

Orange juice is the amazing drink for the patients of high or low blood pressure. Are you interested in finding the reason? Well, this delicious drink contains a significant amount of magnesium, which has a wonderful ability to bring back the disturbed blood pressure level to normal range.

  1. Promotes the Immune System:

Due to the presence of vitamin C, orange juice acts as a best defender for you against several diseases (such as flu or colds), promoting the immune system.

  1. Contains Healing Properties:

One of the top health benefits of orange juice is its healing properties. Oranges contain flavonoids (like naringenin and hesperidin), which are anti-inflammatory stuffs. When you consume this yummy fruit in raw or juice form, the flavonoids work amazingly to treat the arthritis and heal the stiffness and pain.

  1. Prevents Cancer:

The latest scientific research has exposed the effectiveness of the orange juice for preventing several types of cancer.  Oranges comprise a stuff known as D – limonene that is an efficient agent against skin cancer, breast cancer, mouth cancer, colon cancer and lung cancer. Furthermore, the presence of vitamin C also helps in this regard.

  1. Benefits for Treating & Preventing Ulcers:

Ulcers generally appear in the small intestine and stomach. The occurrence of ulcers sometimes becomes a major reason of constipation because in this case, the consumed food particles can’t break down properly. The orange juice is very advantageous in treating and preventing ulcers. It also stimulates the digestive system.

  1. Prevents Kidney Stones:

The risks of formation of kidney stones can be reduced by taking one serving of orange juice on regular basis. Too much concentration of minerals and chemicals usually result as the development of kidney stones. Orange juice contains citrate, which has an excellent ability to prevent this disorder by decreasing the urine acidity. So the individuals, who are suffering through this terrible condition, should include fresh orange juice in daily diet plan.

  1. Assists in Weight Loss:

Many people believe that the regular consumption of orange juice is helpful for cutting down the extra pounds, claiming that this citrus fruit is full of antioxidants, which act efficiently to lose weight.

  1. Reduces Risks of Heart Attacks:

Another leading benefit of orange juice is its assistance in prevention of heart disorders. Hesperidin is a plant based substance that protects the arteries from being clogged by improving the health of nearby cells. Oranges contain hesperidin in sufficient amount, thus consumption of one glass freshly squeezed orange juice ensures lower risks of heart attacks.

  1. Treats Anaemia:

Anaemia is a condition that generally occurs due to insufficient red blood cells in hemoglobin. Iron deficiency is the leading reason behind this situation. Orange juice provides a good quantity of vitamin C that promotes the absorption of iron into blood stream. That’s why most doctors suggest the anaemia patients to consume orange or its juice on regular basis.

  1. Makes the Skin beautiful & Young Looking:

The antioxidant properties of orange juice make the skin fresh, beautiful and young-looking by preventing the aging effects. In addition, the antioxidants with the combination of vitamin C protect the skin cells from getting effected by free radicals. Thus, taking one serving of orange juice each day is a best way to maintain the freshness and attraction of skin for long time. Orange juice for skin is a blessing with no disguise at all!

Nutritional Value of Orange Juice:

Fresh orange juice is a great source of beneficial nutrients such as minerals, vitamins, flavonoids and phyto nutrients. These all nutrients play a significant role in maintaining healthy body. Consumption of vitamin C is essential to protect the body cells from free radicals. A satisfactory amount of this crucial vitamin can be provided to the body by taking orange juice. The presence of manganese, potassium, iron, chlorine, zinc, folic acid, sodium, phosphorus and pectin makes it more valuable. And most importantly the calories in orange juice are zero.

It seemed

like years

before

I picked

a bouquet

of kisses

off her mouth

and put them

into a dawn-colored vase

in

my

heart. 

But

the wait

was worth it.

Because

I

was

in love.

The Nature of the Beast By Ryan Fu (The Hated Ones)

The Nature of the Beast

We are not all born equal

the unfortunate ones

will never get into a fight

but the rest of us

have spent an entire lifetime

in the ring.

Pushed,

Punched,

Pounded

Over

&

Over again. 

Failure after failure,

constantly getting off the mat

we continue to fight on

with a smile on our face,

asking for more

punishment.

We are resilience.

We are intrepid.

We’re all in it together.

Just crabs together in a barrel

fighting to live,

living to fight.

We don’t seek refuge,

we seek the next battle.

This is the nature of the beast,

an opportunity

to piss off the Gods.

Happy Free Comic Book Day – Which is your favorite Comic? Or what was your first Comic?

ComicBooks

Free Comic Book Day, taking place on the first Saturday of May, is an annual promotional effort by the North American comic book industry to help bring new readers into independent comic book stores. Retailer Joe Field of Flying Colors Comics in Concord, California brainstormed the event in his “Big Picture” column in the August 2001 issue of Comics & Games Retailer magazine. Free Comic Book Day started in 2002 and is coordinated by the industry’s single large distributor, Diamond Comic Distributors.

On Free Comic Book Day, participating comic book store retailers give away specially printed copies of free comic books, and some offer cheaper back issues and other items to anyone who visits their establishments. However, retailers do not receive the issues for free; they pay 12–50 cents per copy for the comics they give away during the event. In addition to comic books, some stores also give away other merchandise, such as mini posters and other movie tie-in memorabilia.
