The New Stuff


A steel bolt is probably one of the least emotional or human things that I can think of, but that's not how Tobbe Malm feels. This Swedish blacksmith in Oslo can coax simple steel nuts and bolts into human-like forms that, despite their simple shapes, seem laden with emotion.

On his website, the blacksmith explains how this series, called Bolt Poetry, came about; "The bolts are from an old farm in the heart of a the area Bergsladen in Sweden. I found them in a barn… The bolts reminded me of human forms, and I felt they had something to tell. I heated them, forged, bent and twisted. I tried to create relations, meetings and situations and suddenly stories emerged about sorrow, joy, pain, warmth and humour. A kind of poetry was created, hence the title."

Emotional Nuts & Bolts

ترش پھلوں کی غذائی خصوصیات پر تحقیق سے پتہ چلا ہے کہ ان میں نہ صرف وٹامن سی اور اے بلکہ فولاد، فاسفورس اور چونا بھی بڑی مقدار میں پایا جاتا ہے لہٰذا ان کا استعمال اور تازہ رس نہ صرف وٹا من سی، اے وغیرہ کے حصول کا موثر زریعہ ہے بلکہ  قوت مدافعت میں بھی معاون ہے
ماہرین نے طویل تحقیق کے بعد انکشاف کیا ہے کہ ترش پھل انسان کو کینسر، بلند فشار خون اور کولیسٹرول جیسے امراض سے بچانے میں بھر پور کردار ادا کرنے کے ساتھ ساتھ انسانی جسم میں بھر پور قوت مدافعت پیدا کرنے کا بھی باعث بنتے ہیں۔
ماہرین کے مطابق گریپ فروٹ شوگر کے مریضوں کیلئے نہایت اعلیٰ غذا ہے۔ اگر گریپ فروٹ کو زیادہ استعمال کیا جائے تو شوگر کی مرض ہونے کے چانس بہت کم ہو جاتے ہیں۔
کیلیفورنیا یونیورسٹی کے ماہرین کے مطابق یہ پھل جسم میں موجود مضر صحت شوگر میں کمی کا موجب بنتا ہے۔ ایک تحقیق کے مطابق گریپ فروٹ کا استعمال دوائیوں کی طرح شوگر میں کمی لاتا ہے، پھلوں کا جوس شوگر کو لیول میں رکھتا ہے اور دوائیوں کی طرح مضر صحت بھی نہیں ہے۔
ماہرین کا کہنا ہے کہ گریپ فروٹ کا استعمال شوگر کو کنٹرول کرنے میں معاون ہے کیونکہ اس میں پایا جانے والا کیروٹی نائیڈ، فلے وی نوائیڈز، نارنجن انسانی جسم کےلئے انتہائی مفید ہے۔
بعض اوقات نزلہ، زکام جیسی بیماری اس بات کا اشارہ ہوتی ہے کہ آپ بہت زیادہ کام کرنے کی وجہ سے تھکاوٹ کا شکار ہو چکے ہیں، تو ایسی صورت میں گریپ فروٹ کے جوس کا باقاعدہ استعمال قوت مدافعت کو بڑھا کر پریشانی سے نجات دلاتا ہے۔

Born Without Eyes, Smiley The Golden Retriever Becomes Therapy Dog For Mentally Ill And Disabled
Despite having been blind from birth and raised in a puppy mill, Smiley the golden retriever doesn't seem to have anything to be glum about. This perpetually happy pup is so motivating, joyful and loving that he works as a therapy dog as well, spreading his joy to mentally ill and disabled patients every week.
Stacey Morrison, the photographer behind this beautiful photo session with Smiley, had this to say about him; "he bumps into things a lot. And as I quickly learned, when he's running towards you, he doesn't know when to stop! But otherwise he gets along just fine. In fact, as he's going about his doggy business — sniffing, listening, frolicking, nuzzling — you forget that he has a disability."
According to Morrison, Smiley's owner, a professional dog trainer named Joanne, "says it's important that he explores his surroundings on his own, using his own instincts, without people hovering over him or cringing every time he bumps into something."

Joanne found Smiley in a puppy mill

He was born without eyes, and had his eyes sewn shut to stop his infections

"He bumps into things a lot. And as I quickly learned, when he's running towards you, he doesn't know when to stop!"

Luckily, his blindness didn't stop Joanne from adopting him!

Now he even works as a licensed therapy dog for mentally ill and disabled patients

"Smiley likes to introduce himself to everyone. How could you not fall in love with this face?"

Some of his patients never smile except for when Smiley visits

"As he's going about his doggy business — sniffing, listening, frolicking, nuzzling — you forget that he has a disability"

"Smiley is completely in tune with Joanne. From the sound of her footsteps to the tone in her voice — her cues let him know if he is safe or if there is an obstacle in his way. "

"It's important that he explores his surroundings on his own without people cringing every time he bumps into something"

Blind Therapy Dog


Sphynxes (hairless cats) fascinate me in many ways. I  (Alicia Rius) am drawn by their alien look. There's something disturbing yet eerie that keeps me astonished every time I look at one.
Without fluffy and fancy coats, this breed shows what a true cat is. Everything is raw, exposed, vulnerable.
This body of work is an exploration of the beauty of Sphynxes within their oddity.
