Women have played an incredible role in the progress of the human race. They have deeply accomplished spectacular efforts in harmonizing, balancing, transforming, influencing the diverse, multicultural society and have shaped the course of history.

Dr Paras, Life-leadership Coach and Founder of Matrrix, shares the ultimate self defense techniques adding, with verifiable evidence, history and mythology has proven that there are many stories told of great women leaders who challenged gender stereotypes and did not let discrimination stand in the the way of their goals, objectives and desires.

The patriarchal values have been ingrained within many people for a very long time and how unfortunate it is that it still inevitably exists in today’s generation. But change must begin somewhere and it is upon every woman to catalyze it. In India, rape or sexual assault against a women occurs at least every 20 minutes as per reports.

Self-defense and physical conditioning for women not only allows you to tangibly defend yourself, but practicing it will prepare you for a worst-cases scenario. Women must have the combating skills and take their leadership to the next level. Feel empowered to defend yourself with these self-defense techniques:

The Art of walking Confidently

One needs to pass a confident vibration under a myriad of circumstances. Being confident while walking is a key. So, if you find yourself walking home from the pub in the dark, or running through the woods on the weekend, walk with your head up and shoulders back. Make reliable eye contact with people you pass, instead of looking at your phone or at the ground. Give a positive vibration and do not look vulnerable. You’ll feel and look more confident- this will give the attacker an idea that you are well equipped with the resources for your safety and this will change how a potential attacker sees you. It also lets potential attackers know you could identify them easily.

It is good to avoid confrontation as much as possible. Try to defuse a situation before it gets too dangerous. If you can sense a situation is about to get heated, try talking the person down. If there’s something they want- money, your phone- hand it over. Nothing you own is worth more than your safety. But, if an attacker touches you (or it’s clear that escape isn’t possible), shout too loudly: “BACK OFF!” or “DON’T TOUCH ME!” This does two things: it signals for help, and lets the attacker see you’re not an easy target.

Marijuana Intake Can Impair Fertility in Females, Says Study

This implies lower quality and lower fertilisation capability, therefore lower fertility in the end

Female eggs exposed a psychoactive ingredient in marijuana have an impaired ability to produce viable embryos and are significantly less likely to result in a viable pregnancy, claims a study.

Marijuana, or cannabis, is the most commonly used recreational drug by people of reproductive age The rise in marijuana use has occurred at the same time that the percentage of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) ingredient in the drug has increased.

Currently, patients seeking infertility treatments are advised against cannabis use, but the scientific evidence backing this statement is weak.

“This makes it difficult for physicians to properly advise patients undergoing in vitro fertilization,” said study researcher Megan Misner from University of Guelph in Canada.

In the study, published in the Journal of the Endocrine Society, researchers treated cow oocytes, or female eggs, with concentrations of THC equivalent to therapeutic and recreational doses.

The oocytes were collected and matured into five groups: untreated, control, low THC, mid THC and high THC. For the findings, the eggs’ developmental rates and gene expression were measured.

The researchers evaluated the ability of embryos to reach critical stages of development at specific time points. With higher concentrations of THC, they found a significant decrease and delay in the ability of the treated oocytes to reach these checkpoints.

“This is a key indicator in determining the quality and developmental potential of the egg,” Misner said. THC exposure led to a significant decrease in the expression of genes called connexins, which are present at increased levels in higher quality oocytes.

Poorer quality oocytes, with lower connexin expression levels, have been shown to lead to a poorer embryo development. ”

This embryo would be less likely to proceed past the first week of development, and thus lead to infertility,” Misner said. According to the researchers, preliminary data also showed THC affected the activity of a total of 62 genes in the treatment groups compared with the non-treated groups.
