 why do we carry the olympic torch

why do we carry the olympic torch

Traditionally, relays have been carried out on foot (for Berlin 1936, London 1948 and Moscow 1980 the relays were entirely run in this way). Although at the beginning, runners were mainly selected from amongst athletes, gradually the general public began to participate as well. As the celebration of the Olympic Games has evolved, so has the Olympic torch relay. The modes of transport have slowly become more and more diversified, not only for practical reasons, but also to showcase the particularities of the regions crossed. The flame in the snow! Legendary Norwegian skiers (or their descendants) carried out the entirety of the transport of the flame (Oslo 1952). The flame went into the Arctic Circle at Inuvik, with stages carried out by snow-bike and skidoo (Calgary 1988), the flame has

why do they use vaseline in boxing

Before the fight, cutmen will usually put on the most likely areas of impact, especially the fighter's face, making the skin more elastic and slippery, and hence less likely to tear. It is not considered good practice to use large amounts of petroleum jelly, since during the fight it is likely to end up on the gloves of the opponent, and later in the eyes of the fighter if the opponent lands a close to their eyes. Cutmen might also tape fighters' hands, which helps protect the bones and tendons. Wraps are used during training but are illegal during competition, though people still commonly use the term "wrap" in error to describe the taping method of using gauze and tape. During the fight, cutmen try to control any swelling or bleeding during the breaks between rounds. Since cutmen are

 why does lack of sleep cause puffy eyes

why does lack of sleep cause puffy eyes

If you awaken to eyes that appear to be carrying a little more luggage than the night before, you could be suffering from puffy morning eyes. This common occurrence can be the result of several contributing factors, including what you eat and how you sleep. Understanding and determining why your undereye area is swollen will help you treat the problem and prevent unwanted bags from mysteriously appearing in your morning mirror. A good night's rest is important but lying flat can cause fluid to build up underneath your eyes. Prop your head up by placing a pillow or two underneath your head before retiring at night. This allows the forces of gravity to naturally pull fluid away from underneath your eyes. If you have suffered a sleepless night or you have not been getting at least seven

 why does my dog smell like cheese

why does my dog smell like cheese

By Dr. Becker Dogs donБt smell like freshly showered people Б theyБre not supposed to! They have their own canine smell, which varies from dog to dog, but itБs not unpleasant. In fact, many people will tell you they love to bury their nose in their petБs fur and inhale that wonderful doggy scent. A healthy dog who is regularly brushed and bathed (and hasnБt just rolled in a pile of poop or dead animal remains, as many love to do) should not smell bad. If your dog has an unpleasant odor, thereБs a reason and you need to find out what it is. Is It a Yeast Infection? A is a very common cause of stinky dogs. Yeast has a very pungent, musty, unique odor that has been compared to moldy bread, cheese popcorn, or corn chips. Some people actually refer to a yeast infection on a dogБs paws as

Отрежьте полиэтиленовый кончик упаковки над пластиковым наконечником сигары. Не снимайте полиэтилен с сигары. Каждая Black 'n Mild упакована индивидуально, и вы можете использовать эту упаковку, чтобы собрать в нее табак, когда будете вытряхивать его из сигары. Так как вам нужно будет засыпать табак обратно в сигару в конце, лучше всего полиэтилен именно отрезать, а не оторвать: у вас будет аккуратный, а не рваный край, с которым удобно работать. Некоторым нравится отрезать кончик упаковки в форме лопатки. ...

 why do your eyes twitch when you are tired

why do your eyes twitch when you are tired

By Eye twitching, eyelid tics and spasms are pretty common. Called "myokymia" in doctor lingo, these rippling muscle contractions usually involve only the lower eyelid of one eye, but the upper eyelid also can twitch. Most eye twitches come and go, but sometimes a twitching eye can last for weeks or even months. I once received an e-mail from a patient's wife, who told me her left lower eyelid had been twitching for several weeks and it was driving her crazy. Could I help? To find a solution for a twitching eye, we first need to determine the underlying cause. What Causes Eyelid Twitching? Almost all sudden-onset eyelid twitching is benign, meaning the condition is not serious or a sign of a medical problem. Common eye twitching is unrelated to neurological conditions affecting the

 why do you have hypernatremia with diabetes insipidus

why do you have hypernatremia with diabetes insipidus

Diabetes insipidus (die-uh-BEE-teze in-SIP-uh-dus) is an uncommon disorder that causes an imbalance of water in the body. This imbalance leads to intense thirst even after drinking fluids (polydipsia), and excretion of large amounts of urine (polyuria). While the names diabetes insipidus and diabetes mellitus sound similar, they're not related. Diabetes mellitus which can occur as type 1 or type 2 is the more common form of diabetes. There's no cure for diabetes insipidus, but treatments are available to relieve your thirst and normalize your urine output. Depending on the severity of the condition, urine output can be as much as 16 quarts (about 15 liters) a day if you're drinking a lot of fluids. Normally, a healthy adult will urinate an average of less than 3 quarts (about 3 liters) a

 why do wheels look like they re going backwards

why do wheels look like they re going backwards

We ve all seen it before: a object, that we know is spinning, appears to be turning backwards when we know for a fact that it s doing exactly the opposite. Why does that clockwise motion appear to be counterclockwise (or vice versa) to our eyes? The answer (or answers) to this quandary begins on the silver screen, since the effect is extremely simple to produce with an ordinary film camera. Because movie cameras capture video as a series of still frames, and the wheel it s filming moves continuously without such discrete states, some artifacts are bound to pop up in the interaction. In the case of a video camera, or in real life with strobed lighting, the periods of visibility broken by periods of invisibility will interact with frequency of the rotation of the wheel. This so-called Wagon
