Eye Colors

One of the first things that we notice when we see a person are his/her eyes and infact, eyes are amongst the primary features that attract us towards an individual. Even in case of eyes, the aspect that first comes into notice is the eye color. Eye color is basically a polygenic trait of an individual. It is determined by the amount and type of pigments present in the iris of the eyes. In this context, three elements are mainly considered, namely the melanin content of the iris pigment epithelium, the melanin content within the iris stroma and the cellular density of the iris stroma. The main reason for difference in the eye colors of individuals is the melanin content within the iris stroma. Read on to know more about various eye colors.

Types of Eye Colors
Given below is information on the most common as well as the most rare eye colors in human beings.

Most Common Eye Colours

The eye color that can be described as the most common amongst human beings is brown, with the exception of countries around the Baltic Sea. It is the result of the presence of large amounts of melanin (eumelanin) within the iris stroma. People who have very dark brown irises might give the appearance of having black eyes.

Another common eye color is hazel. Hazel eyes are the result of a combination of a Rayleigh scattering and a modest amount of melanin in the front border layer of the iris. Hazel eye color has also been defined as the medium-color between light brown and dark green. Hazel is common amongst people in America and Europe, while rare in African, Middle Eastern and Asian people.

Gray eye color is considered to be a darker shade of blue (like blue-green). This eye color is related to low melanin in the iris and is related to scant pigmentation throughout the body (like pale skin, light hair, etc). Gray eyes have been found to reveal small amounts of yellow and brown color in the iris. European people, belonging to countries like Russia, Finland and the Baltic States, often have gray eyes, while those in Southeast Asia rarely have this eye color. Gray eyes might seem to change between the shades of blue, green and gray, mainly because of the lighting changes.

Blue eyes are quite common amongst people, especially those born in Germany, Netherlands, Iceland, Austria, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, and Estonia. The reason behind this eye color is low amounts of melanin within the iris stroma. In Central Asia and Middle East, blue eyes are pretty rare. Since the production of melanin generally increases during the first few years of life, the blue eyes of some babies might darken as they get older.

Rarest Eye Colors

Amber eyes can be defined as the ones having a strong yellowish/golden and russet/coppery tint. The reason behind amber eyes is the deposition of ‘lipochrome’, the yellow pigment, in the iris. It is a very rare eye color and also known as ‘wolf eyes’, since amber eye color is very common in wolves.

Green eye color is amongst the rarest eye color, with only 1-2% of the world's population born with green eyes. The reason for green eye color is the production of moderate amounts of melanin. People born in Northern Europe and Nordic countries (like Iceland, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Germany, and Netherlands) usually have green eyes.

Violet eyes are mainly seen in albinos. In effect, the eyes of some albinos appear to be violet because of the mixing of red and blue reflections. Violet eyes are either a form of blue eyes or a mutation.

Red is probably the rarest eye color amongst the human population of the world. It is mainly seen in case of albinos and is the result of either large quantities of the ‘normally scarce’ red areas in the eyes or a small leakage of blood into the iris.

Black is amongst the rarest eye colors in the world. Most of the people who appear to have black eyes have, infact, extremely dark brown eyes that seem to be black.

Alone Wedding!

Veils, Vows and Vintage cars but NO GROOM!

This might sound scary, but have a look online, it will show this thing real exist and it is growing with many young women are choosing to do the same. To them it’s a way to celebrate themselves and hit back at the pressure on single girls to get married.

“Traditionalists may call it bonkers” but it’s a symbolic ceremony that the “bride” uses to show they don’t need a man to validate them. Rather than settle for Mr OK, they are choosing to do it alone and they want to celebrate their lives and the person they are. For some women it’s kind of therapy. On a brighter side, “me marriage” isn’t legal and that doesn’t prohibit the women from marrying again, is kind of a ritual to keep their mind at peace with themselves.

Put a ring ON IT!

While it might sound a bit out-there, the idea of marrying oneself had been gaining popularity, with women around the world lining up to slip a ring on their own finger. The little chapel in Vegas has reported a growing number of women doing it. And women in the UK are jumping on the trend.  Still In doubt? Google “I’m marrying myself” and you will find posts of women across the country making plans for their own solo service, with photos of wedding dresses and venue plans, and discussions of the vows they’ll make.

According to a relationship psychologist, the trend is rooted in how we feel about marriage and ourselves. “Over the past 30 years there’s been a shift towards thinking that we only get one life and have the most of it. With the popularity of self-help books and therapy, we’re much more focused on understanding ourselves and making ourselves happy”

“Marriage, or at least life partnership, is a goal for women, and we crave the security and validation of a partner dedicating themselves to us forever or so we think.  But with many marriages ending in divorce, its more like we’re just promising to be together for as long we can. So while marrying yourself might seem like an extreme thing to do, it’s actually practical – it’s women making a promise they can keep. And as long as it’s not just a cry for help, it can be a really positive thing or what do you think?

ISELOGBE - The Twelve Days of Christmas!

The Twelve Days of Christmas my favorite and still the best Christmas carol, The lyrics of The Twelve Days of Christmas may have no meaning at all. Its meaning, if it has any, has yet to be satisfactorily explained.

According to The Oxford Dictionary of Nursery Rhymes, "Suggestions have been made that the gifts have significance, as representing the food or sport for each month of the year. Importance certainly has long been attached to the Twelve Days, when, for instance, the weather on each day was carefully observed to see what it would be in the corresponding month of the coming year. Nevertheless, whatever the ultimate origin of the chant, it seems probable that the lines that survive today both in England and France are merely an irreligious travesty."

A bit of modern folklore claims that the song's lyrics were written as a "catechism song" to help young Catholics learn their faith, at a time when practising Catholicism was criminalized in England (1558 until 1829). There is no primary evidence supporting this claim, and no evidence that the claim is historical, or "anything but a fanciful modern day speculation." The theory is of relatively recent origin. It was first suggested by Canadian English teacher and hymnologist Hugh D. McKellar in a short article, "How to Decode the Twelve Days of Christmas," published in 1979. In a later article published in the music journal The Hymn, he reiterates that the associations are his.The idea was further popularized by a Catholic priest, Fr. Hal Stockert, in an article he wrote in 1982 and posted online in 1995.

Variations in lyrics provide further evidence against the "catechism song" origin. For example, the four Gospels are often described as the "four calling birds," when in fact the phrase "calling birds" is a modern (probably 20th century) phonetic misunderstanding of "colly birds" (blackbirds).

Regardless of the origin of this idea, a number of Christians give the following meanings to the gifts:

"The Twelve Days of Christmas" as a Catechism Song
A partridge in a pear treeJesus
Two turtle dovesThe Old and New Testaments
Three French hensThe three kings bearing gifts
Four calling birdsThe four Gospels
Five gold ringsThe Torah or Pentateuch, the first five books of the Old Testament
Six geese a-layingThe Six days of creations
Seven swans a-swimmingSeven gifts of the Holy Spirit
Eight maids a-milkingThe eight Beatitudes
Nine ladies dancingNine fruits of the Holy Spirit
Ten lords a-leapingThe Ten Commandments
Eleven pipers pipingThe eleven faithful Apostles
Twelve drummers drummingThe twelve points of the  Apostles's Creed
And again, whats Christmas without Blackberry users having their own version of the 12th day of Christmas? so here is Something to smile about, enjoy!
On the 12th day of Christmas my Blackberry  gave to me:

"The people that suffers the most are the ones that don’t know what they want”...

It seems we have no control whatsoever over our heart, conditions can change without warning, romance can make the heart pound, just like a panic pound and panic can make it stop cold in our chest; is no wonder Doctors tried hard so much times to keep the heart stable; to keep it slow, steady, regular or to stop the heart from pounding out of our chest, from the dread of something terrible or the anticipation of something else entirely...

At the end of the day, when it comes down to it, all we really want is to be close to somebody. So this thing where we all keep our distance and pretend not to care about each other, it's usually a load of bull. So we pick and choose who we want to remain close to, and once we've chosen those people, we tend to stick close by, no matter how much we hurt them…

No one believes their life is going to turn out just kind of ok. We all think we’re going to be great and we feel a little bit robbed when our expectations aren’t met. But sometimes expectations sell us short. Sometimes the expected simply pales in comparison to the unexpected. You got to wonder why we cling to our expectations, because the expected is just what keeps us steady. Still, the expected is just the beginning; the unexpected is what changes our lives…

Maybe we're not supposed to be happy. Maybe gratitude has nothing to do with joy. Maybe being grateful means recognizing what you have for what it is. Appreciating small victories, admiring the struggle it takes simply to be human. Maybe we're thankful for the familiar things we know, and maybe we're thankful for the things we'll never know. At the end of the day, the fact that we have the courage to still be standing is reason enough to celebrate.” be thankful...

There comes a point in your life, when you’re officially an adult. Suddenly, you’re old enough to vote, drink and engage in other adult activities. Suddenly, people expect you to be responsible, serious, a grown-up. We get taller, we get older. But do we ever really grow up? In some ways we grow up; we have families... we get married, divorced... but for the most part we still have the same problems that we did when we were fifteen. No matter how much we grow taller, grow older, we are still forever stumbling... forever wondering, forever young...

"So if you know what you want, how to get it will surely emerge, so be hopeful, because the unexpected is what changes our lives forever...."

What are affirmations?

Affirmations are short positive statements that are repeated daily to create an imprint into your subconscious mind. This mechanism creates a shift in your subconscious mind to welcome positive thinking about yourself. As you read each statement take a few seconds and reflect on each of the statement.

I love and believe in myself
I am grateful for what I have
I accept myself totally and unconditionally
I am 100% responsible for my life
I focus on what I appreciate in others
I can!
I am loving and caring
I see beauty in everything
I am the only person in charge of my happiness and bliss
I am patient
The more I give love, the more I receive love
I live in a universe of abundance
I am detached from the outcome
I persist in the directions of my dreams
I compare my progress only to myself
I take things one day at a time
I can change my life by changing my thoughts
I live my life the way I want to
I forgive and move on
I become what I think about, so I only think of good thoughts
I only have thoughts that empower me
I am decisive
My mind is focused on what I desire
Today I choose to be the best I can be at everything I do, so help me God!
