This Man Has Been Taking Care of His Paralyzed Wife for 56 Years – THIS Is True Love

0

This faithful husband has spent 56 years taking care of his paralyzed wife, Zhou Yu’ai, and continues to love her no matter what.
We at Bright Side believe that true love really exists, and the story of Chinese farmer Du Yuanfa proves it without a shadow of a doubt.


© People’s Daily Online
Du and Zhou got married in 1959, but just five months after their wedding fate dealt them a cruel blow. The young wife was struck by a mysterious disease at the age of 20 and became completely paralyzed. At the time, Du was working in a coal mine in the nearby city and found out about the tragic event only after he had received a letter from his family informing him that Zhou was sick and bed-bound.
Du immediately took a long leave from work and returned home. Due to the illness, Zhou lost all sensation in her body. She could not even turn or hold objects in her hands. No doctor could figure out what was wrong with the young woman. And then, to make matters worse, the young couple found out that Zhou lost the ability to reproduce.

A lot of Du’s friends suggested that he annul his marriage and start a new life, but the loving man refused. He told his wife, “Don’t worry. I will care for you forever,” and kept his word.
Du quit his job and devoted all his time to caring for his wife. The loving husband, who also works as a farmer, spoon-feeds his wife, changes her bedpans, prepares traditional Chinese medicines, and takes her to different doctors.

Du’s dedication couldn’t go unnoticed by his neighbors who often come to visit the old couple and bring them life necessities, groceries, and medicines. Moreover, Du and Zhou also receive help from the local authorities.
Du has never given up. For nearly six decades he has been taking care of his beloved wife. Every day, the man cleans, feeds, and massages his wife and still hopes to find treatment for her disease. Perhaps this is what true love looks like.

Just to satisfy our curiosity, we at Bright Side decided to compare minimum wages in different countries around the world! It should be noted that such a comparison can’t be made based on bare numbers alone. A lot depends on each particular country’s standard of living, taxation system, and currency exchange rates.

12. Drying footwear quickly

13. Boiling milk faster

© bilder.4ever
Milk is guaranteed to boil faster if you add a pinch of sugar.
14. A simple way to grate cheese

© victorinoxshop

15. Getting rid of unpleasant odours in the kitchen

© simplycleanhome
It’s easy to get rid of bad smells in the kitchen. Pour one tablespoon of ordinary vinegar into a frying pan and heat until it evaporates.

The screen of your smartphone can become scratched very quickly if you don’t cover it with protective film. Put a little toothpaste on a cloth, then carefully rub it on to any scratches. Remove any remaining toothpaste and wipe the screen dry.

Top 14 Foods You Shouldn’t Keep in the Fridge

0

There are a number of products that can lose their nutritional value, taste, and texture pretty quickly at cold temperatures.
We at Bright Side put together a list of 14 foods you shouldn’t store in the refrigerator.

Avocados

When you put unripened avocados in the fridge, they quickly begin to absorb moisture through their skin and get soft. It’s best to store avocados in a fruit bowl.

Potatoes

Keeping potatoes at a temperature below 7°С (44°F) will make them taste unpleasantly sweet. Instead of putting potatoes in the fridge, store them in a paper bag in a cool (but not cold) place.

Chocolate

At cold temperatures crystals of sucrose in the chocolate come out on the surface to form an unpleasant white bloom. As a result, the product loses its natural flavor.

Tropical fruits

Tropical fruits quickly go rotten and become harmful when placed in the fridge. You can wrap them in several layers of paper and store them in a dry dark place.

Basil

The fridge isn’t the ideal place for keeping basil. It will wilt faster and absorb all the other smells around it. It’s better to put it in a cup of water, like cut flowers.

Green beans

Putting green beans in the refrigerator will cause them to lose their useful properties. You can freeze the fresh beans and enjoy them all year round.

Onions

The moisture in the fridge will eventually turn onions soft and make them unfit for consumption. In addition, excessive moisture facilitates the growth of harmful bacteria and mold.

Coffee

You should never keep coffee in the fridge: it can take on some of the smells of other foods and lose its unique flavor. Store it somewhere cool and dark where it can retain its best qualities. However, larger amounts of coffee can be kept in the freezer.

Olive oil

It’s recommended to store olive oil at temperatures from +12 to +16°C (from 53 to 60°F). It’ll gain a harder consistency when put in the fridge.

Honey

Cold and moisture increase the speed of the crystallization of honey. As a result, it rapidly loses its taste and health benefits. However, this nutritious food will stay good almost forever if you keep it in a tightly sealed jar at room temperature.

Tomatoes

The refrigerator isn’t the best storage site for tomatoes since the cold air stops the ripening process. Cold temperatures affect the taste and texture of the tomatoes and make them mushy.

Bread

Some people think that storing bread in the fridge is the best way to keep it fresh. In fact, nothing dries out bread and makes it stale more than the fridge. If you’ve got more bread than you need, you can always make crunchy bread chips from it.

Eggplants

Eggplants are also highly sensitive to the cold temperature within the fridge. They become soft and pitted on the surface, so it’s better to keep them at room temperature.

Bananas

When refrigerated, bananas quickly turn black and look visually unappealing. When you see bananas with black spots in the store it doesn’t mean they are ripe: it’s because they haven’t been stored properly during transportation.

MS Dhoni trains his dogs to catch the ball and Playing with his daughter Ziva

0

After being in the limelight for all these years there are a few things we know about MS Dhoni. One his first love is cricket – to serve the country to the best of his ability, second his family and daughter Ziva, third would be the Indian Army, then there are superbikes, cars and amidst all that, his love for the canines goes along all of that. He has a lot of four-legged friends at home and never misses an opportunity to pet one whenever he spots them around the ground.

Dhoni is a man at leisure now having retired from Tests; he has his time at hand and is at home in Ranchi with no immediate international assignments at hand. A couple of days ago he had shared a video on Instagram while playing with his daughter Ziva. The dad who missed the birth of his child finally has time to be with her and enjoy her childhood. Today the former skipper posted another video and this time he was having fun with his dogs.

Not just one but there are three of those. They are on the terrace of his house, he has a ball in hand and he is instructing them. Probably telling them the most important rule in the game – watch the ball. Usually, dogs tend to run to fetch the ball even if you just act like you threw it but these guys have a human like MS Dhoni along and he has taught them not to be tricked so easily.

He just acts to throw it a couple of times they move instinctively but don’t get tricked – they had their eyes on the ball. Then he bumps it on the floor and the dogs finally get to grab the ball.

Watch the video here and we guarantee it will make your day:

Why the Cabin Crew keep their arms behind their backs when greeting passengers

0

If you’re an experienced traveler or just an attentive person, you may have noticed that cabin crew always keep their arms folded behind their backs when greeting passengers and when walking the aircraft cabin. When doing so, they also don’t appear to check that seat belts are fastened or that passengers’ phones are turned off.

It turns out there’s an important reason for this, and we at Bright Side are going to tell you what it is.

It’s really quite simple: before take-off, the cabin crew need to count the number of passengers onboard. This takes place either as they enter or when the passengers have all sat down. The cabin crew use a special counter to do this:

The cabin crew keep their arms behind their backs when doing the counting in order to not attract too much attention to themselves.

Top 11 Mysteries of Famous Icons That 90% of People Don’t Know About

0

There are certain works of art and architecture that are famous the world over. But if you study the history of some of them a little more intently, you’ll find that many of them contain a great deal of mysteries.
We at Bright Side decided to compile a list of some of the most intriguing ones. We were amazed at what we found out.
The top-floor apartment of the Eiffel Tower

Gustave Eiffel, the man who designed France’s most famous monument, built and fitted out an apartment for himself on its topmost floor. He often used it to rest and receive guests. On one occasion, he had a long conversation there with Thomas Edison. The apartment contains a kitchen, bathroom, two bedrooms, and a living room, and, of course, boasts spectacular views. Today it serves as a museum, complete with waxworks of Eiffel and Edison.

The broken chain at the feet of the Statue of Liberty

The Statue of Liberty was given to the USA by the people of France in honor of the 100th anniversary of the American Revolution. It symbolizes freedom, democracy, and the repeal of slavery. It is for this reason that a broken chain lies at the feet of the statue — something often overlooked by the many thousands of tourists who go to see it.

The Isleworth Mona Lisa

It’s a well-known fact that many artists have reproduced the famous Mona Lisa. But it’s believed that there is one other portrait painted by da Vinci himself, and this one is no copy. Interestingly, the second version is painted from a slightly different perspective. It’s possible that it was made by a different artist, or maybe several of them. According to experts, however, it’s more likely that this is simply an earlier version of da Vinci’s masterpiece.

The time capsule in Mount Rushmore

During the construction of this famous monument, architect Gutzon Borglum wanted to create a Hall of Chronicles inside the cliff face — a secret room where future generations would find the fundamental records of and information about the USA’s history. For this purpose, he excavated a cave behind the head of Abraham Lincoln. Soon after, however, Borglum died, and his plan was not completed. In 1998, more than 50 years after his death, copies of important documents and the memoirs of various presidents were placed inside the unfinished hall, which now serves as a time capsule.

The Matterhorn at Disneyland

The Matterhorn at Disneyland that’s modelled and named after a mountain in the Alps on the border with Switzerland and Italy is the first tubular steel continuous track roller coaster. That’s not it though. Inside the very top there is a small attic-like structure used as a staging and break area for climbers: a basketball hoop, complete with backboard and net, which has been attached to a flight of wooden stairs. Climbers and Cast Members used the basketball court and staging area to prepare for scheduled climbs or to pass time when there was bad weather.

The Sphinx’s original appearance

The Great Sphinx of Giza is the oldest statue in the world. Originally, it was decorated with bright paint, only fragments of which remain today behind one of its ears. It also had a nose and a ceremonial beard. The remains of these can be seen in British and Egyptian museums. Some experts believe that the Sphinx may originally have had the head of a lion, and a human face was only carved over this much later, which would explain the large difference between the proportions of the gigantic body and the small head.

The creation of the Leaning Tower of Pisa

The famous tower contains many secrets. Everyone knows about its inclination, but no one knows who actually built the bell tower for Pisa’s cathedral. One of the reasons for this mystery is the fact that it was built over the course of nearly 200 years. Historians are used to assuming the construction plan was developed by Bonanno Pizano, but a more likely candidate was Diotisalvi, who designed the baptistery located next to the tower which is built in the same style.

The face of Rembrandt’s Danaë

Rembrandt started painting Danaë two years after his marriage to Saskia van Uylenburgh. The artist depicted his wife in many of his paintings, and it long remained a mystery why the similarity with Saskia was not so clear in this image as it was in his other works of the 1630s. Moreover, the style of this particular painting was closer to many of his later works. It is only recently that explanations have been found for this mystery. When examined using x-rays, the similarity of the figure in the painting with Rembrandt’s wife is much clearer. It seems the painting was redone after his spouse’s death, at a time when he was infatuated with another woman, Geertje Dircx. The facial features of Danaë were changed in such a way that they combined both of his lovers’ features.

The name of the most famous tourist attraction in Britain

Strictly speaking, “Big Ben“ doesn’t refer to the whole tower in the British Houses of Parliament but instead only the large bell within it. Until September 2012, the official name for the structure was ”The Bell Tower of the Palace of Westminster.” Now its official name is “The Elizabeth Tower.” At present, no one knows for certain in whose honor the bell was named Big Ben. One theory goes that it was the nickname of a powerfully built man who managed the bell foundry where it was made. Another theory suggests it was named after Benjamin Count, a heavyweight boxing champion.

The color of the Golden Gate Bridge

The Golden Gate Bridge is one of the most photographed landmarks in the world. It took a long time to agree its construction with the United States Navy. When permission was finally obtained, the Navy wanted it to be painted in black and yellow stripes so that it would be visible in fog. In the end, the architect of the bridge, Irving Morrow, convinced the military to paint it a dark orange color. This not only made sure it was visible in all weather conditions but also gave it an attractive appearance.

The sky in the painting The Scream

The initial name of the legendary painting by Edvard Munch was The Scream of Nature. The artist wrote in his diary:
“…suddenly the sky became blood-red; I stopped, feeling exhausted, and leaning against a fence, saw blood and tongues of flame over bluish-black fjord and a city…”
In 2003, a group of astronomers put forth the theory that the bright scarlet color of the sky that so astounded the artist was caused by the eruption of the Krakatoa volcano in 1883. A huge quantity of volcanic dust was thrown up into the atmosphere, because of which extremely bright flamelike sunsets were observed all around the world over the following few years.
