Love: What Really Matters
A loving relationship can be an oasis in uncertain times, but nurturing it requires attention, honesty, openness, vulnerability, and gratitude.

Why We Want Who We Want
Who we desire is driven by powerful evolutionary forces, but while most of us are drawn to looks first (whether or not we admit it), human attraction is far more complex than it appears at first sight.

MARK: “There was a lot of chemistry. We just talked and talked. One of the first things I said was that people who look like you usually aren’t as cool as you are.”  ALEXIS: "He left that night and I Facetimed him an hour later, then I woke up and Facetimed him again."  


Throughout her 20s, management consultant and author Nita Tucker dated doctors—usually tall ones. She was drawn by their status and her mother's insistence that a physician would be a great catch. "If someone said he was a doctor, I was turned on," she says. "I went out with enough to staff a major hospital."

Then Tucker moved to Seattle, where the SuperSonics had just won the NBA championship and were the town's biggest celebrities. To Tucker, a basketball player seemed an even better catch than a doctor. Plus, he'd be taller.

One night at a bar, Tucker noticed some guys from the team, including one who had just been dubbed "Most Eligible Bachelor" by a local paper. Tucker smiled and tried to catch his eye. "But I didn't smile quite high enough, because the guy next to him came over instead." That man, Tony, invited Tucker to join the group. She spent the rest of the evening flirting with the players and ignoring him.

Tony, it turned out, was the team's vice president, and he invited Tucker to a game the next day. "I said, 'Of course!' because I wanted to be with the players," she says. "They were funny and cute. Tony was a boring executive. He had a dated haircut and long sideburns."

And yet Tucker went out with Tony nearly every night that week, mostly to basketball-related events. "I was using him," she says. She started to feel guilty about it. "I told my roommate that I was going to stop going out with him, and she said, 'I'll take him!' She was so enthusiastic that I thought, 'Wait a minute. I'm not going to give him up right away.' He was always so nice to be with. After about 10 dates, I looked at him across the table and realized I was falling in love." They have now been together for 37 years.

Attraction can spark at first sight or sneak up on us, stealthily and unexpectedly. At other times, it's a disappointing no-show: We've probably all wished we could fall for a loyal friend or a date who sounded great online. It can sometimes seem as if we have no dominion  over our romantic tastes, but "humans have a lot of control and a lot of volition" in this realm, says Glenn Geher, a psychology professor at the State University of New York at New Paltz and a co-author of Mating Intelligence Unleashed. We can overcome an initial, unwise attraction, no matter how powerful, and be drawn to a great partner, even if it isn't lust at first sight. We also can take steps to attract the right person to us.


Survival of the Prettiest
"There are universal standards of attraction, and they're not skin deep but rather fundamentally anchored in adaptive problems that men and women have to solve in mate selection," says David Buss, a psychology professor at the University of Texas at Austin and the author of The Evolution of Desire.

The main adaptive problem for men, evolutionarily speaking? The fact that human female ovulation is largely concealed. Other female primates signal fertility in clearly detectable ways, such as a chimp's pink genital swelling. A male human is given no such guidance. "This dramatically changed the ground rules of mating for humans," Buss says. "Human males have to detect fertility from physical cues that happen to correlate with it." Since female fertility peaks in the mid-20s and declines to zero around age 50, the theory goes, cues correlated with youth and health have evolved into a universal standard of female attractiveness.


MARGO: (right) "I was really attracted to Zoe's enthusiasm. She asked me a lot of questions about myself, which turns out to just be how she interacts with everyone."  ZOE: "I was flirting up a storm but it took Margo a few hours to catch on." 


A slew of studies show that men do tend to be drawn to women displaying markers of youth and health—bright eyes, clear skin, full lips, symmetrical features, a sprightly gait, and a narrow waist in comparison to the hips. "You can see the evolutionary history of female faces and bodies at the drugstore," Geher says. "Every product is designed to make women look as if they're in that fertile stage of life. You see hair coloring, products to make the eyes stand out, and lipstick for more vivid and luscious lips."

A 2016 paper published in Evolution and Human Behavior takes the fertility hypothesis one step further, investigating what the authors called the "fitness relevant trait" of a woman's lumbar curve. Researchers hypothesized that since pregnancy shifts a woman's center of gravity forward, men would be attracted to women with a lower back curvature that would minimize the pressure on the spine created by carrying a fetus, thereby reducing net fitness threats. They used Photoshop to manipulate the angle of curvature on photos of women, and in two studies, men's interest grew  as the lower back curve moved closer to the presumed optimum, perhaps discovering the evolutionary correlate to Meghan Trainor's song "All About That Bass."

Evolutionary standards of attraction work both ways: Women are drawn to physical characteristics indicating good health and a likely ability to provide and protect—broad shoulders with narrower hips, athleticism, a strong jawline, and a deep voice.

In my case, that translates into attraction to men who are swarthy, soulful, and, in some cases, hairy. I first spotted the man I'll call "Joshua" standing across a courtyard at a synagogue, his biceps evident beneath his dress shirt. As he glanced toward me with eyes that were big and brown, intelligent and sensitive, searing yet slightly hurt, a message shot through my heart: "I must have sex with this man!" Or, to quote Rainer Maria Rilke, "Look, that is how, if you do not come, I shall crawl to my ending."


Joshua was successful in a highly competitive creative field, which heightened his appeal, just as evolutionary psychology would predict. "Every marker of creativity seems to play into mating," Geher says, "Being attracted to someone creative means that person's creativity could help you and your offspring and that those genes could pass on to your offspring. We're also attracted to resources—today, money—and to kindness."

The notion that our partner preferences are driven by ancient biological demands can be infuriating. But "even if we consciously say, 'I'm not going to do these things you say I'm evolved to do,' it's hard to get away from them. They've been sculpted over so many thousands of generations," Geher says. "In spite of how much the environment has changed, our evolved mindset is based on ancestral conditions."

Hot Enough for You?
Attraction to good looks may be a fundamental part of human evolution, but modern society has bolstered the bias. "The media portray the ideal as someone who is exceptionally physically attractive," says Eastern Connecticut State University psychology professor Madeleine Fugère, a co-author of The Social Psychology of Attraction and Romantic Relationships. "In reality, you have to be only moderately attractive to be attractive to most of the population," Fugère says.

The concept of assortative mating holds that people who couple up "tend to have correlated attractiveness levels," says University of California, Davis psychology professor Paul Eastwick. So it's more important to be well matched with your partner than to catch the most beautiful person in your circle. Couples, whether same-sex or heterosexual, tend to fall within similar ranges of size, education, religious beliefs, values, and socioeconomic status. The exceptions—say, couples with widely divergent levels of physical attractiveness—often knew each other well as friends or acquaintances before becoming romantic, Eastwick says.


JEFF: "When I first saw her I thought she was a knockout."  STACEY: "We were working together and some people were talking about things to do. I said, 'I hate museums!' He started making fun of me for that and got me so angry that I cursed him out. That sealed the deal for me."  Photo by Peter Hapak
Researchers are only now discovering the broad influence assortative mating has on us. New studies suggest that, consciously or not, we seek partners who resemble us, in terms of appearance, height, or IQ. Studies by geneticists at the University of Queensland in Australia found a strong correlation in the genetic markers for height between partners in more than 24,000 married couples. They also found striking similarities within couples for genetic markers that have been linked to the pursuit of education.

Assortative mating can also have a significant impact on genetic inheritance. A study published last year by a team at Sweden's Karolinska Institute found that individuals with a mental disorder such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder were more likely to partner with others who have mental disorders than would be expected by chance. This makes those couples much more likely to pass these disorders on to their children and grandchildren.

There are some exceptions to assortative mating, such as the tendency of many men to shy away from women who are equally (or more) intelligent or successful than they are. Recent findings confirm this bias. For a 2016 study, researchers at the Warsaw School of Economics analyzed data from a Columbia University speed-dating experiment. Participants had rated dates on a 10-point scale for both physical attractiveness and intelligence, and they also stated whether they'd want to meet the person again. Unsurprisingly, both men and women preferred people whom they rated high on both qualities. But men's interest in a woman's intelligence peaked at a rating of about 7. A woman smarter than that? No uptick in the men's desire to date her. In fact, scoring a perfect 10 in the brains department lowered some men's interest. Women rating men, however, said that for them, the smarter the better.

In another study published last year in Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, most male participants reported that they'd like to be with a woman who was smart, even one who scored higher than they did on a math or verbal test. But when they actually took a math test while seated next to a woman, and then learned that she had scored higher, their ardor quickly faded.

Evolutionary theorists believe that a woman who has the demonstrable ability to occupy the role of provider can decrease a man's sense of power and purpose and compromise his self-evaluation or feelings of manliness. This does not mean smart women should play dumb, but it shows that how we feel about ourselves when we're with a partner affects how attractive that person seems to us.

Romantic (and Brain) Chemistry
Biological anthropologist Helen Fisher, the author of Anatomy of Love and Why Him? Why Her? points to another system underpinning our attractions—brain chemistry. "What does it mean when people say, 'We have chemistry'?" she asks. Part of her answer lies in four neural systems that underlie our major constellations of personality traits—the dopamine, serotonin, testosterone, and estrogen/oxytocin systems.

Fisher created a 56-question survey to measure how many traits in each of these four systems a person expresses—in other words, which neural systems dominate your personality. More than 14 million people have taken the survey through Chemistry.com and Match.com. Fisher, who may be best known for imaging the brains of people in love, also used fMRI scanners to confirm that particpants' reported traits matched expected neural activity patterns.

She found that people with dopamine-dominant personalities (curious, creative, adventurous types) tend to be drawn to fellow dopamine-influenced adventurers. Serotonin-dominant people (traditional, conscientious, and rule-following) are also drawn to people like themselves. On the other hand, testosterone-dominant people (analytical, skeptical, and tough-minded) and estrogen-dominant individuals (nurturing, contextual, imaginative) are drawn to each other, essentially to their behavioral opposites.

"We all have all four systems, and everyone has a different ratio," Fisher says. Knowing your own primary traits, and how they play out with others, could help you choose better and improve your romantic connections. Fisher, a self-described high-dopamine type, describes negotiating with a serotonin-dominant date who refused to sneak a bottle of water into a movie theater. "Instead of saying, 'He's just being a stuffed shirt,' I try to say, 'Oh, it's the serotonin gap. We'll just go buy some water.'"

Changing Your Type
My family talks about looks, a lot. They refer to my great aunt Nettie as "The Most Beautiful Girl in Cleveland." And my grandmother was such a comely child, according to family lore, that the Cossacks would drive her around Poland and return her home safely, too charmed by her looks to do her any harm. Are we more superficial than most? Not necessarily. We just have a deeper acceptance of our shallow nature.

In a recent study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Eastwick and psychology professor Eli Finkel of Northwestern asked participants to list the characteristics they cared about most in a mate. They then invited subjects to attend a speed-dating event and, afterward, to rate each of their 12 mini-dates on attractiveness, humor, and earning potential—and to state whom they'd like to see again. In the end, everyone wanted to go out with the best-looking people, despite their stated preferences. And while, in their surveys, men had been more open than women about prioritizing looks, males and females were equally interested in second dates with the best-looking potential partners. (Warmth and a sense of humor were also favorable factors in the study, after looks.)

"Men and women both want hot, ambitious people," Finkel says. "You say you like tall, funny guys. Your best friend says, 'I want someone who's wealthy and kindhearted.' People claim that they have a strong preference for a particular attribute, but they don't end up being especially attracted to potential partners who possess it."

Sometimes we are certain that we have a preference and have to date ourselves out of it. Entrepreneur Verick Cornett, 33, dated women who fit a certain mold—tall and athletic—through his early 20s. Then he met someone who matched his type, and whom he found intensely alluring—but they disagreed on nearly everything. He spent two years in an on-again-off-again relationship with her before calling it quits, finally accepting that physical attraction, and even chemistry, were not enough to make a long-term relationship work.

Next, he dated someone who was his physical type, and who shared his background and interests. But he wasn't especially attracted to her. "I realized that for me, attractiveness has an element of how you carry yourself and how confident you are—and she lacked confidence." The pair broke up, and he broadened his range.

Cornett had discovered the importance of what researchers call dynamic attraction, otherwise known as charisma or magnetism. Studies show that physical attraction isn't just about a face or body in a static state, but also how the person behind it uses what he or she has. Our movements and gestures, our emotional expressiveness, how much we light up when speaking to someone we just met at the beach—all are components of dynamic attraction and help explain why certain people are so highly sought after. A recent study by Eastwick, Finkel, and three other researchers looked at people's choices on online dating apps like Tinder and found that individuals were twice as likely to choose prospective dates whose pictures displayed "postural expansiveness—expanding the body in physical space," making that quality the most reliably predictive trait for attraction.

One type that research confirms many women struggle to quit is the "bad boy." In my case, the swarthy man I met at synagogue turned out to be not only creative and accomplished but also self-absorbed, work-obsessed, and generally unreliable. But I was so attracted to him that I excused nearly a year of obfuscations, canceled plans, and outright rudeness. It took discovering that he was married to convince me to give him up.

We all know men and women who perpetually fall for partners who are "no good" for them. We may be drawn to such individuals by a perception of power, Geher says: "Power in an absolute sense is attractive. There are multiple routes to success. The 'bad boy' can be someone high on the 'dark triad' personality traits—narcissism, Machiavellianism, and psychopathy. When people are high in all three, they can become powerful, but through a dark route." That's the allure of the bad boy: Someone who seems as if he doesn't care about the rules, or about conventional relationships, can be strangely appealing. "It seems like not being afraid of life," Geher says.

The Smoldering Acquaintance
for many, romantic attraction is far more complex than a simple response to visual stimuli. "When you initially meet someone, often the only information you have is their looks," says Arthur Aron, a psychology professor at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. "But a person can be wealthy, or powerful, or interesting, or a brilliant artist, and you might find those qualities very attractive." You might also be drawn to someone's availability. While unrequited love has its romantic appeal, most of us actually prefer a present partner, Aron says: "The likelihood of  forming a relationship is increased if that person likes you."

A person also can grow more appealing through intimate conversation. In a now-classic 1997 study led by Aron, researchers instructed pairs of participants to ask each other 36 questions that solicited gradually escalating levels of self-disclosure; in other words, the conversations were designed to quickly get more intimate. Aron wanted to see if he could manipulate closeness to help people understand each other better, not to generate romantic attraction. And yet, after a 45-minute chat, many pairs of participants did feel closer, and some were more attracted to each other; one pair went on to marry.

Most romances, it turns out, are like an extended version of Aron's exercise: They ripen over time. "People overestimate how easy and common it is to strike up any sort of sexual relationship with someone they've just met," Eastwick says, "and they underestimate how common it is for relationships to emerge from their existing social network. If you ask people how long they knew someone before their first kiss or hook-up, the average is about a year."

Or, as Helen Fisher puts it, "Romantic love is like a sleeping cat. It can be awakened at any moment."

Sometimes, though, that cat just lies in the middle of the living room, refusing to budge even if you run the vacuum around it. The truth is that while many factors can spark sincere attraction, we still cannot force ourselves to desire someone. "It's quite common to fall in love with someone you've known, but not for it to be someone you've known and wanted to fall in love with," Aron says. "Even when a person has known someone for a while, often they'll say, 'I kind of knew it but didn't want to tell myself that.'"

Making It Last
For Nita Tucker, falling for Tony involved a makeover. She took him shopping and recruited a hairstylist friend to give him a more flattering cut. Suddenly, "he was so good-looking that all these other women started coming on to him." (Research confirms the old adage that a prospective partner becomes more attractive when you discover how much others want be with him or her.) "Tony's confidence really blossomed, which also made him more attractive," Tucker says. "It didn't take much."

Being too beautiful, however, can have downsides. Consider this, if you can suppress your schadenfreude: From an assortative mating perspective, if you're extraordinarily attractive, it may take years to find your equal. And at least one study shows that people who are more attractive can be more exacting than the rest of us about potential partners' appearance, drastically limiting their pool of eligible mates.

Being seen as "cool" presents similar complications. Johnny Gaudi, 48, an Austin-based singer/songwriter, has been a front man for bands since his teens. He says performing is like having Super Attraction dust sprinkled on you, but the sheen brings mixed results. "When you're on stage, you're the focal point. The lights are dimmed, and there's a room full of 500 people, all looking at you." This invites fantasies that are hard to fulfill when the lights come up. "In October, a woman asked me out at a show. We went to dinner and walked around after. I think she had an idea of who I was that she'd made up," he says, "but when I was there, I wasn't that poet or brooding artiste. I asked her if she wanted to go out again, and she said, 'I'd rather go out as friends.' This has happened before."

Gaudi, who is divorced, met his first wife through his social circle, and he'd prefer to do that again. "I would hope to meet someone in a normal scenario, who likes me for who I am," he says. "'Cool' is a currency when you're young, but not so much as you get older. People are looking for someone who is stable, not a dreamer who's gone every weekend."

Long-term couples confirm that attraction is never a completely stable state, any more than looks or wit. "We go through phases where we don't see each other as people," Nita Tucker says, "and then all of sudden, you're far away and you think, He's so cute! I have to wake myself up to appreciate it."

After decades of marriage, she says, "It's important to me to notice that and to say, 'You look great.' I think the more you appreciate something, the more it grows. So I think part of his being attractive is my making him feel attractive. I think it's my job to make him feel attractive, and I'm doing it well."

Can You Make Yourself More Attractive?
Research shows that there may be a few things you can do to improve your chances of attracting the person you want most, although your results may vary.

Be Comfortable and Confident.
Developing more comfort in your own body can greatly increase your dynamic attractiveness. Take a dance class, or just spend more time dancing around your living room. Join a running club or take up acting. And improve your dynamic attractiveness by using open, expansive body gestures. Similarly, when you focus on your strengths and seek out the environments where you're most confident, you'll feel more secure, which can translate into appearing more attractive to others.

1. Greece

This country has a long tradition of partaking in sexual activities, and this dates back to the ancient times. After all, these are the guys who made popular the concept of pederasty and Sapphic love. With its temperate Mediterranean weather, beaches and tons of islands, it’s no wonder why Greece is ranked first as the most sexually active country in the world.

2. Brazil 

Considering how this is the birthplace of the thong, it makes sense that sex is as essential as breathing in Brazil. Stroll along any beach and you would certainly find many gorgeous women sunbathing by the shore of perhaps even taking a dip in the ocean. It’s no secret that people here have amazing bods and they should totally flaunt it if they’ve got it. ?

3. Russia

80% of Russian adults have sex at least once a week and Igor S. Kon mentioned in the International Encyclopedia of Sexuality how sexual satisfaction and general satisfaction with marriage itself is closely interrelated. “Practically all couples maximally satisfied with their marriages believed they were sexually compatible, while only 63 percent were sexually compatible among the maritally dissatisfied,” Igor stated.

4. Italy 

Many Italians live la dolce vita with sex high on their list of things to do on a daily basis. A poll found that 32% of Italians over the age of 60 still have sex regularly. It’s unclear if this means that seniors are schtupping around the clock or once a week. However, one thing’s clear; their frequency in the sack helped give this country a spot on our list of top 10 most sexually active countries.

5. Poland

For a fairly conservative culture, Poland has earned a steamy reputation as one of the most sexually active countries out there. In fact, Poland has an annual Eroticon festival that showcases the latest and greatest sex toys and mechanisms in the adult industry.

6. Malaysia 

In general, our country definitely appears conservative. For example, there was a recent controversy over whether sex education should be taught in high school or not. However, behind closed doors (pun totally intended) lies the real story: Malaysians are swinging from the bedposts, and loving every minute of it.

In fact, 74% of Malaysians reportedly have sex at least once a week. Interestingly though, Malaysians still have a pretty shallow knowledge about sex as proven by this survey by Durex.

7. Switzerland 

Sure, they’re politically neutral, but the Swiss definitely have a set opinion about sex. Psst, that opinion roughly translates to: “Gimme more.” Apart from their regular bedroom feats, prostitution is also legal in this country. Yep, that’s right.

8. Spain

Recently, it’s been reported that Spanish men have turned to our modern-day Spanish fly, Viagra, to please their ladies longer — even if they are fully capable of the act without the pill. Of course, this little enhancement makes sure they meet their own expectations as well, proving that this is definitely one of the most sexually active countries around.

9. Mexico 

In May of 2008, Mexico City’s government distributed 700,000 copies of sex-ed textbooks to deliver to the city’s student population, well aware that the kids would be doing the horizontal tango one way or another. They also place 2nd in a ranking of most sexually satisfied countries in the world.

Everyone in the world wants to be attractive to the opposite sex. Everyone aspires to be an attractive personality to the opposite sex. Everyone wants people of the opposite sex to talk about him or think about him. But can everyone become the most attractive in the eyes of the opposite sex? No, not everyone has this qualification. The special ability to attract people of the opposite sex is to be acquired through practice. Quite easily you can make yourself attractive to the opposite sex. Whether you are a woman or a man, it is very easy to make yourself attractive. In this article I will tell you how to be the most attractive to people of the opposite sex. Let's take a look at the infallible strategies to become the most attractive to people of the opposite sex.>>


Laughter>>

Laughter is the ornament of the face. All the people of the world look beautiful and attractive when they smile. And so one of the ways to attract people of the opposite sex is to have a "personality" smile. Give him the gift of a lively smile when talking to people of the opposite sex. You can attract him in an instant. But that smile must be relevant.>>

Talking eye to eye>>

Talking to someone eye to eye can easily attract him. Keep an eye on the person of the opposite sex while talking. If you talk eye to eye, he/she will be impressed by your confidence. This will help you to understand the language of your partner’s eyes. >>

Keep yourself clean>>

One of the ways to attract people of the opposite sex is to stay clean. Try to keep yourself clean all the time. If you want you can use a beautiful light perfume. Put a touch of cleanliness on the clothes as well. Everyone in the world likes tidy and well-dressed people.>>

Women should keep red lipstick handy>>

Ladies, pick up some red lipstick next time you're at the drug store.>>

A woman's lips are the most attractive part of her body, especially when colored with red lipstick, a study from the Manchester University revealed.>>

The study found that men stared at a woman's lips for seven full seconds when they were colored red. In comparison, they spent just 0.95 seconds looking at her eyes and 0.85 seconds gazing at her hair.>>

Guys—brood a little more>>

Brooding and swaggering men are much more attractive than men who are smiling, according to a recent study from the University of British Columbia. In fact, the women surveyed said happiness was the least attractive quality in a man. >>

But the study was based only on "gut reactions on carnal, sexual attraction," one of the study's co-authors told The Daily Mail, not whether the men would make a good boyfriend or husband.>>

The study could explain why some women are attracted to the "bad boy" persona.>>


Expose dashing style>>

Whilst there’s only so much you can do to change your looks, there are ways you can instantly increase your attractiveness to others. Studies show that changes to your body language, your actions and even what you wear can boost your appeal.>>

Donning a frock or T-shirt in the color of confidence really can make both men and women more attractive to the opposite sex, research has found. Wearing red makes men seem more dominant and successful, and when women wear red, they tap into men’s primitive desires and thus seem more sexually desirable.>>

Swaying your hips or adopting a swagger when you walk can make women and men more attractive respectively, according to research. In fact, you could double your allure simply by walking in a different way. For women, it’s a case of swinging your hips from side to side, whereas men should walk with swagger in their shoulders.>>

Think of the present>>

We always think about what will happen in the future. But the best way to understand yourself is to focus on what you have now. Take things in stride and try not focus too much on the problem. Always keep an eye on what is happening to your opposite sex in the moment. Try to understand the language of his/her eyes what he/she wants. This will increase your importance to him/her.>>

Get to know yourself>>

Know what you are. In the words of Socrates, ‘no they selves’. Know yourself before you understand others. Be honest, hardworking and industrious as a person. This will create self-love as well as increase self-confidence manifold. Try to make yourself trustworthy and dignified to your opposite sex.>>

Keep the spine straight>>

Another effective way to look attractive is to sit and walk with your spine straight. When talking to people of the opposite sex or sitting somewhere, be sure to sit with your spine straight. Then it will look quite smart to you. With that you can easily attract people of the opposite sex. Always keep your head up. Talk to others face to face and always keep yourself in a high position.>>


Be fluent>>

Try to be fluent with people of the opposite sex. Many people panic and lose confidence when talking to someone of the opposite sex. No matter how scared you are, try not to express it in the message. They can be easily attracted by treating people of the opposite sex fluently.>>

Stay alive>>

Try to keep your behavior with the opposite sex alive. Express your sense of humor, laughter and exuberance with an open mind. Your open-minded, lively demeanor will fascinate people of the opposite sex.>>

Do not reveal all your secrets>>

Always keep yourself mysterious to the opposite sex. Always keep some of your secrets behind the curtain. If you reveal all your secrets, you will lose attraction to the opposite sex. And so keep yourself in suspense about certain things. You can easily attract everyone through your mysterious personality.>>

Get enough sleep>>

If you sleep according to the rules, you will have a good time to rest, it will keep the skin healthy and fresh. Your eyesight will also improve. You will be able to adapt well to emotions like anger, revenge, resentment etc.>>

Leaders across the globe continue to fight the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak.
COVID-19 is the disease caused by a new type of coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2.
The current situation follows the severe acute respiratory syndrome-coronavirus (SARS) outbreak in 2003 and first detection of Middle East respiratory syndrome-coronavirus (MERS-CoV) in 2012.
ER physicians in critical condition with COVID-19The COVID-19 outbreak in the United States is taking a toll on medical staff on the front lines, according to a new report.
“This virus is dangerous, and its impact is still unfolding. As emergency physicians, we answer the call to care for our most vulnerable, even at great personal risk,” Dr. William Jaquis, president of American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP), said in a statement. “Knowing that, I urge each of you to meticulously follow the recommended precautions to protect yourself.”
At least two physicians are in critical condition with COVID-19, according to the ACEP.
One physician is in his 40s and based in Washington state, the state with the most cases and deaths in the United States. The other physician is a man in his 70s based in New Jersey.
Perfume factories, distilleries start to make hand sanitizerAs hand sanitizer producers are unable to keep up with demand, other businesses are stepping in to help.
This week, luxury conglomerate Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton (LVMH) announced they would have all of their perfume factories start to produce hand sanitizer that will be distributed for free in France with French health providers getting priority.
“Given the risk of shortage of hydroalcoholic gel in France, Bernard Arnault has instructed the LVMH Perfumes and Cosmetics business to prepare its production sites to manufacture substantial quantities of hydroalcoholic gel to be provided to public authorities,” the company said according to WWD.
France has been put into a virtual lockdown with bars and restaurants closed as the virus has spread to thousands.
In the United States, at least one distillery in Portland is repurposing a byproduct of their production and using it to make hand sanitizer. Shine Distillery and Grill said that they’re giving out free hand sanitizer to customers.

Official talks potential for restaurant closingDr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said in an interview on “Face the Nation” that the COVID-19 task force is discussing all options to fight the outbreak including potentially calling for restaurants to close.
“You don’t want to make a pronouncement that no one should ever go into a restaurant. I mean, I think that might be overkill right now, but everything is on the table,” he said. “It may come to the situation where we strongly recommend. Right now, myself personally, I wouldn’t go to a restaurant. I just wouldn’t because I don’t want to be in a crowded place.”
Fauci explained the reason people need to avoid social gatherings right now is to reduce the number of cases occurring during the peak of the outbreak.
Trump tests negative for virusTrump’s physician said the president has tested negative for COVID-19.
The president was tested after he came into contact with a member of the Brazilian delegation later found to have the virus at an event in Mar-a-Lago. At least two other people at the same event contracted COVID-19.
The president initially said he didn’t believe he would need to be tested, but later relented.
Spain and France implement nationwide lockdownsWith the center of the COVID-19 outbreak firmly in Europe, both Spain and France will join Italy in implementing nationwide lockdowns to contain the virus.
According to the BBC, all shops in Spain would be closed except for those selling food or other basic necessities. In France, restaurants, cafes, bars, and other nonessential stores would be closed.
Spain currently has over 7,700 cases with 289 deaths, while France reports over 4,500 cases with 91 deaths.
On Saturday Mar. 14, Trump announced that travelers from the United Kingdom and Ireland would be banned from traveling to the United States. The news comes days after Trump banned travelers from other parts of Europe.
Exemptions may be made for Americans or permanent residents.
National emergency declaredDuring a press conference held Friday Mar. 13, President Trump declared a national emergency over the new coronavirus pandemic.
“The emergency orders I am issuing today will also confer broad new authority to the secretary of Health and Human Services,” said Trump. “The secretary of HHS will be able to immediately waive provisions of applicable laws and regulations to give doctors, hospitals, all hospitals, and healthcare providers maximum flexibility to respond to the virus and care for patients.”
The declaration will allow access to $50 billion earmarked for disaster relief.
WHO says Europe now the center of the outbreakIn a briefing to reporters, Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus, the director-general of the World Health Organization (WHO) said Europe is now the center of the COVID-19 outbreak.
“More cases are now being reported every day than were reported in China at the height of its epidemic,” he said.
Italy is currently on virtual lockdown as the medical system, especially in the northern region of the country, has become overwhelmed.

President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden both took the opportunity to explain what they believe are the most effective actions we can take against the current COVID-19 crisis.
In only the second Oval Office address of Mr. Trump’s presidency, he laid out his plan to deal with the health crisis currently facing the United States, one facet of which is restricting international travel.
“To keep new cases from entering our shores, we will be suspending all travel from Europe to the United States for the next 30 days. The new rules will go into effect Friday at midnight. These restrictions will be adjusted subject to conditions on the ground,” said Trump during his address.
Former Vice President Joe Biden, in his own speech on the pandemic emphasized the universal nature of the risk COVID-19 presents.
“This disease could impact every nation and any person on the planet, we need a plan about how we’re going to aggressively manage here at home,” said Biden. He also forcefully disagreed that restricting travel is an effective method of containing the virus.
NBA suspends season; March Madness tournament canceledThe NBA has suspended the rest of the season after two players on the Utah Jazz tested positive for the virus. Players on five other teams the Jazz played in recent days will also need to be quarantined.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced a ban on gatherings of 500 people, which effectively means all shows on Broadway will be canceled.
The President of the NCAA announced that the iconic March Madness basketball tournament will be canceled.

“In the past two weeks the number of cases of COVID-19 outside of China has increased 13-fold and the number of infected countries has tripled,” said Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus.
“We are deeply concerned both by the alarming levels of spread and severity and the alarming levels of inaction. COVID-19 can be characterized as a pandemic,” he said.
Dr. Fauci said in a congressional hearing on Mar. 11 that Americans should be prepared for the outbreak to get worse in the coming days and weeks.
“We have got to assume it is going to get worse and worse and worse,” he said, according to the New York Times.
He continued, “We cannot look at it and say, ‘Well, there are only a couple of cases here, that’s good.’ Because a couple of cases today are going to [be] many, many cases tomorrow.”
National guard called up in New YorkGovernor Andrew Cuomo of New York has called in the national guard to assist with combating the new coronavirus.
National guard members will help in a containment area centered in the town of New Rochelle just outside of New York City.
A 1-mile radius around the most severe cases will mean public gatherings and school are banned. National guard members will assist with cleaning public areas and ensuring that people have access to food.

Andrew Cuomo✔@NYGovCuomoWe are implementing new emergency measures in New Rochelle, which has the biggest cluster of #Coronavirus cases in the state. Starting on Thursday for 2 wks, there will be a containment zone with a 1 mile radius around the site of the most cases in New Rochelle.
View image on Twitter9692:30 PM - Mar 10, 2020Twitter Ads info and privacy782 people are talking about thisCOVID-19 has 5-day incubation periodResearchers at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health analyzed publicly available data to find the virus has roughly a 5-day incubation period from exposure to onset of symptoms.
The analysisTrusted Source also suggests that about 98 percent of people who develop symptoms will do so within 11.5 days of exposure.
Researchers said this average time from exposure to onset of symptoms suggests the CDC’s 14-day quarantine period for people who were likely exposed to the virus is reasonable.
Another recent study from Sun Yat-sen University in China has discovered that SARS-CoV-2 may have an ideal temperature at which it spreads most easily.
Researchers analyzed the cumulative number of all confirmed cases in all affected cities and regions from Jan. 20 to Feb. 4, 2020. Their findings suggest it spreads most easily at about 48°F (8.89°C).
“The study found that, to certain extent, temperature could significantly change COVID-19 transmission, and there might be a best temperature for the viral transmission, which may partly explain why it first broke out in Wuhan,” wrote the study authors. “It is suggested that countries and regions with a lower temperature in the world adopt the strictest control measures to prevent future reversal.”
The CDC now estimates that over the next year, many people in the United States will be exposed to SARS-CoV-2.
“It’s fair to say that, as the trajectory of the outbreak continues, many people in the United States will at some point in time, either this year or next, be exposed to this virus. And there’s a good chance many will become sick,” Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases (NCIRD), said in a telebriefingTrusted Source with reporters on Mar. 9.
“But again, based on what we know about this virus, we do not expect most people to develop serious illness,” Messonnier added.
U.S. cases top 3,200Cases of COVID-19 in the United States have reached more than 3,200 with 62 deaths.
In Washington state, where 40 people have died, the University of Washington announced it will no longer hold classes on campus for the rest of the quarter and instead rely on online courses.
Stanford University in California is also turning to online courses for the rest of the term.
Dr. Fauci said we’re seeing an “acceleration of cases,” and that if the spread of the virus gets much worse, local or federal government officials may start to impose more serious restrictions on travel or social gatherings.
When asked on “Fox News” whether the United States may try to impose a similar lockdown as the Italian government did, Fauci replied: “Given the spread we’ve seen, you know, anything’s possible. And that’s the reason why we’ve got to be prepared to take whatever action is appropriate to contain and mitigate the outbreak.”
Italy lockdowns to curb spread of virusIn Italy, where cases of COVID-19 have soared in recent weeks, the government is effectively locking down the country.
The prime minister of Italy declared that bars and restaurants will close at 6 p.m. and that leaving the home should be restricted except for work or a few other select errands.
Local U.S. health departments warn they don’t have enough testsWith increasing numbers of people reporting symptoms of COVID-19 across the country, local health departments are warning they don’t have enough testing kits.
Recently, a letter from Dr. Raul Perea-Henze, the deputy mayor of health and human services in New York, reported the city was given just two test kits.
“New York City must receive additional testing kits as soon as they are available from the CDC,” Perea-Henze wrote in the letter. “With multiple positive cases, NYC needs maximum testing capacity to enable successful implementation of the public health strategies that best protect New Yorkers. The slow federal action on this matter has impeded our ability to beat back this epidemic.”
After initial test kits sent by the CDC were delayed in February, the federal government has come under increased pressure to provide test kits for SARS-CoV-2 in order to gauge the extent of the spread in the United States.
Nurses are also sounding an alarm over a lack of preparedness.
A survey by the union that represents nurses, National Nurses United, found a significant portion of nurses say they feel hospitals are unprepared for a major outbreak of COVID-19.
The survey included responses by 6,500 nurses in 48 states. It found a significant number of them don’t have clear information about how to handle patients who may be suspected of having SARS-CoV-2.
Nearly a quarter said they’re not sure if there’s a plan to isolate patients with COVID-19 symptoms.
Old law may expand production of medical suppliesA 70-year-old law called the Defense Production Act allows the president to speed production of materials for purposes of national security.
Health Secretary Alex M. Azar II confirmed it might be used to speed production of COVID-19-related medical supplies on Feb. 28, according to The New York Times.
“I don’t have any procurements I need it for now, but if I need it, we’ll use it,” Azar told reporters at a White House briefing on the administration’s request to Congress for emergency funds to respond to the virus.
Azar also said that if SARS-CoV-2 began spreading widely, those showing mild symptoms shouldn’t seek help at hospitals. Instead, they should stay home to avoid the risk of overcrowding health facilities.
CT scans may help diagnosis of COVID-19Researchers from Mount Sinai confirmed they may be able to use CT scans to speed diagnosis of individuals with symptoms of COVID-19.
The New York-based researchers published their findings in the journal Radiology after analyzing the scans of 94 patients in China admitted to the hospital for treatment.
“Mount Sinai Health System physicians — the first experts in the country to analyze chest computed tomography (CT) scans of patients from China with coronavirus disease (COVID-19) — have identified specific patterns in the lungs as markers of the disease as it develops over the course of a week and a half,” Mount Sinai said in a statement.
According to researchers, out of 36 patients scanned from 0 to 2 days after reporting symptoms, more than half didn’t show evidence of lung disease — which suggests that CT scans can’t rule out disease early.
In 33 patients scanned 3 to 5 days after symptoms, the radiologists detected hazy findings in the lungs called “ground glass opacities,” indicative of the disease.
Patients examined 6 to 12 days afterward universally showed signs of lung disease.
“If coronavirus should continue to spread and impact the United States or elsewhere more significantly, this study equips radiologists with the knowledge to recognize and more confidently suggest if a patient has COVID-19 or pneumonia due to another cause,” said co-author Dr. Michael Chung, assistant professor of diagnostic, molecular, and interventional radiology at the Icahn School of Medicine, in a statement.
However, a recent case study finds conclusive evidence that someone who shows no symptoms can still transmit the virus to others.
Chinese researchers confirmedTrusted Source that a young woman from Wuhan transmitted the virus to her family while never showing symptoms herself.
Also, the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CCDC) analyzed records of China’s reported cases of COVID-19 from Dec. 8 to Feb. 11 to find that a little more than 1 percent of patients with the virus showed no sign of infection.
Research finds new ways virus can spreadResearchers are studying how people who’ve contracted the virus shed it, and what impact that’s having on affected populations.
One new study has found answers that many won’t find comforting.
Testing and confirmation of SARS-CoV-2 is currently carried out by oral swabs. But research published Feb. 17 in Emerging Microbes & Infections finds evidence that there’s an oral-fecal transmission route.
The scientists reported that its genetic material was detected in both anal swabs and blood samples.
“We detected the virus in oral swabs, anal swabs, and blood, thus infected patients can potentially shed this pathogen through respiratory, fecal-oral, or body fluid routes,” the study authors wrote.
Chinese researchers conducted the study in a Wuhan, China, hospital, and analyzed samples collected from about 180 patients.
Crucially, evidence of SARS-CoV-2 was found in anal swabs and blood — even when it wasn’t detected using oral swabs. According to the study, this was particularly true for those people receiving supportive care for several days.
Findings also suggest that timing is an important factor.
On day 1 of the illness, 80 percent of oral swabs were SARS-CoV-2-positive, but by day 5, 75 percent of anal swabs were positive, while only half of the oral swabs showed infection, according to the study.
“These results confirm that COVID-19 patients have live virus in stool specimens, which is a new finding in the transmission routes of 2019-nCoV,” wrote authors of a study, published by the CCDC publication CCDC Weekly.
This means that sneezing isn’t the only way for transmission. Blood and fecal matter can carry the virus, even when conventional testing comes back negative.
“The virus can also be transmitted through the potential fecal-oral route. This means that stool samples may contaminate hands, food, water, etc., and may cause infection by invading the oral cavity, respiratory mucosa, conjunctiva, etc,” study authors concluded.
Study finds who’s most at riskAlthough medical staff, people with illnesses, and older adults are most at risk, more than 80 percent of COVID-19 cases have been mild, according to a report from the CCDC.
The Hubei province in China, where the infection is believed to have originated, is the hardest hit, according to the report.
The province’s death rate is almost 3 percent, compared with just under a half percent in the rest of the country.
The deadly disease gets a new nameThe WHO announced on Feb. 11 that the disease caused by the new coronavirus originating in China would now be called COVID-19.
Basically, the virus itself is called SARS-CoV-2, and the disease that results from the virus is COVID-19.
Previously, it had been called 2019nCoV, although many media outlets referred to it simply as “coronavirus,” even though that refers to a larger family of viruses.

According to the WHOTrusted Source, initial information about the pneumonia cases in Wuhan, provided by Chinese authorities, pointed to the coronavirus as the pathogen causing this cluster.
Chinese authorities reported that laboratory tests ruled out SARS-CoV, MERS-CoV, influenza, avian influenza, adenovirus, and other common infectious agents.
More than 8,000 people contracted the SARS virus, and almost 800 died in the 2002 epidemic.
The SARS virus spread to nearly 40 countriesTrusted Source in 2002 and 2003. The same type of virus was associated with a similar outbreak of MERS, which was first identified in 2013Trusted Source in Saudi Arabia.
According to the WHOTrusted Source, MERS has been responsible for about 850 deaths worldwide.
Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses, with some causing less severe disease, like the common cold. Although some easily transmit from person to person, others don’t.
What is a coronavirus?“Corona means ‘crown,’ so these viruses appear crown-shaped when looked at under an electron microscope,” said Dr. Bhanu Sud, an infectious disease specialist at St. Jude Medical Center in Placentia, California.
“Most coronaviruses are harmless,” he said. “They’ll usually cause mild to moderate upper respiratory tract illnesses, like the common cold. Most people will get infected with these viruses at some point in their lives.”
Sud emphasizes that while the outlook is good for most people who contract this type of virus, the SARS and MERS strains are more serious.
The death rate is around 10 percent for people with SARS and 30 percent for those with the MERS variant.
No treatment availableAccording to Sud, human coronaviruses most commonly transmit from an infected person to others via:
the air by coughing and sneezingclose personal contact, such as touching or shaking handstouching an object or surface with the virus on it, then touching your mouth, nose, or eyes before washing your hands“In the United States, people usually get infected with common human coronaviruses in the fall and winter. However, infection can occur at any time of the year,” he said.
“Most people will get infected with one or more of the common human coronaviruses in their lifetime,” he added.
Sud also points out both SARS and MERS outbreaks were from animal-to-human contact, with SARS most likely from contact with bats and MERS from contact with camels.
“Since the organism causing infection is a virus, to date, we don’t have any specific antiviral medications,” Sud said.
What to do if you have symptoms of COVID-19If you have COVID-19 or suspect you have the virus that causes COVID-19, you should seek medical care.
You have several options for obtaining medical care, including being seen by your primary healthcare provider. The CDC recommends calling your provider first so that they can take the necessary steps to prepare for your visit and protect others from possible exposure to the virus that causes COVID-19.
Some healthcare providers also offer virtual visits through your smartphone or laptop, so you may not need to leave your home for an initial assessment.
If you don’t have a primary healthcare provider, you can use this tool to find a local primary care office in your area.
If you have a medical emergency, call 911. Notify the operator that you have COVID-19 or suspect exposure to the virus that causes it. If possible, put on a face mask before emergency medical services arrive.

Cadencealida
wow, why is it so difficult?
MMOexpshop

My mother said that out of all five of her children

I was the easiest baby

I think what she meant was that I hardly cried,

Rarely fussed

And was generally asleep

Which I guess was a good thing, for her

As the fourth of five she had a lot to deal with before she could get to me

So I made it easier for her

I kept doing it as I grew up

If one of my siblings dropped their ice cream,

I’d give them mine so they’d stop making a scene

When someone had to sit in a middle seat

You can bet that’s where my car seat would be strapped

In fifth grade, when Clara Gomez stole my cookie from my lunch box

I just shrugged, and ate my carrot sticks

My nickname was “montañita”, little mountain

Because I was never moved, never bothered, always calm

In seventh grade, I broke my leg

But I didn’t tell anyone for three days

I just gritted my teeth and hopped along

Until my father found me crying on the bathroom floor

He took me to the hospital, and bought me a cast we couldn’t afford

And when the kids at school called me a cripple

Well, you can guess what I did

In high school, my little sister Sofia was getting picked on by some boys

I pretended I didn’t see it happen

But that night, I switched out her too-small uniform skirt for mine

She stopped getting teased,

And I wore pants for the rest of the year

When my college Algebra professor lost my test and made me retake it, I just nodded and did it

When I got catcalled walking across campus,

I just looked down at the ground

And you

The first day you came up to me and offered to buy me coffee

I was sure you were making fun of me too

So I stayed quiet

Eventually, you flashed me that blinding smile and told me, “Guess I’ll take that as a yes, then.”

I think I said about three words to you that first day

But I gave you my number

And answered when you called
