It’s disconcerting to think that the last time the Logie Awards were on COVID wasn’t a thing, RAT was a rodent and not an acronym, and “iso” had yet to enter the national lexicon.

The 62nd TV Week Logie Awards take place tonight at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Center in Queensland, and a bit has changed since we last celebrated TV night. Here’s what you need to know.

The Silver Logie for Most Popular Presenter has been renamed the Bert Newton Award in honor of the great and late Bert Newton.

Who is eligible after the two-year break?

Given the time that has elapsed between the next Logies and the previous prizes, the organizers have decided on a slightly extended eligibility deadline.

For any host, actor, actress or program to be eligible for nomination, their work or the show had to air between January 1, 2021 and March 31, 2022, with the exception of the Outstanding Sports Coverage category, which covers the period from January 1, 2021 to March 14, 2022.

Unfortunately for the programs that aired throughout 2020 and the actors who starred in them or the talent that hosted them, they are not eligible for nomination.

What time does it start?

The red carpet and awards show action will air on Nine and stream on 9Now (Nine is this masthead’s publisher). Red carpet coverage begins at 7 p.m. and is hosted by Leila McKinnon, David Campbell and Renee Bargh, while the awards start at 7:30 p.m.

Changes we need to know about?

Yes, there are a few, actually. The Silver Lodge for Most Popular Presenter will be renamed the Bert Newton Award in honor of the great and late Bert Newton, who sadly passed away last October. The award will be presented by Bert’s wife, Patti.

The Logie Awards also introduced a brand new award, a Silver Logie for the most popular Australian actor or actress in an international programme. The award recognizes the significant number of Australians who have left their mark across the world in international success. This year’s nominees include Succession stars Sarah Snook and Murray Bartlett of The White Lotus.

Even before Covid-19, rates of behavioral illnesses were on the rise. In the third year of the pandemic, mental health has accelerated to become a crisis, with healthcare workers in particular facing high levels of stress and burnout. Although mask mandates have been lifted and restrictions eased in many areas, caregivers are still treating infected patients, while coping with the fallout of the past two years. This confluence of factors has led to an increase in mental health problems among health care workers, many of whom report experience record rates of anxiety and depression compared to the general population.

Previously, the design of clinical spaces for wellness was primarily patient-centric. From now on, taking care of patients is a table stake; caring for the people who serve them is crucial to creating and maintaining a successful hospital system.

Designing buildings for the well-being of carers is not only necessary to stem the mental health crisis within the profession. It is also essential to reinforce the financial fallout that ensues with high turnover, avoiding additional pressure on a system already taxed by financial losses due to delayed treatment during the pandemic.

During Covid, hospitals have seen increased turnover rates between employees, costing morale and the bottom line. According Becker Hospital Reviewin 2020, RN turnover rate increased 2.8 percentage points to 18.7% industry-wide. Every percentage point change translates to approximately $270,000 lost or saved per hospital.

These numbers have prompted hospitals to rethink their approach to the physical environment and incorporate research-based design strategies that improve the well-being of patients and staff guiding their recovery. Below, we outline three lessons for designing hospitals and clinics based on the current projects NBBJ is working on with Massachusetts General Hospital, Atrium Health, Loma Linda University Medical Center, and Montage Health.

Lesson 1: Employee mental health can be part of a building’s identity.

Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) in Boston is currently building a 482-bed expansion called Cambridge Street that focuses on staff and patient satisfaction, operational efficiency and environmental stewardship. Several years ago, NBBJ also oversaw the creation of MGH’s 150-bed Lunder building. Both installations offer key insights into how seemingly simple design interventions can have a significant impact on the mental well-being of staff members.

It is important to note that what we recommend are not amenities, although some may call them that. Rather than focusing on the “nice-to-have” perks found in the tech company’s headquarters, many of the spaces in the MGH facility are “must-haves” given that lives are at stake: cages of light-flooded staircases, deliberately quiet patient floors and safer spaces. working conditions, for example.

The Lunder Building provides abundant access to daylight through a glazed stairwell used only by staff, who have adopted the hallway as their de facto meeting space (dubbed the “staircase conference room”). Staff also use this stairwell as a place to “be alone together” and report finding comfort in watching employees walk through the stairwell as they use the space to reflect and decompress.

The building further expands staff exposure to daylight — that impacts work-related stress and job satisfaction and affects clinician burnout — by corridors allowing staff to access the rooms from an exterior wall. Since less noise can reduce caregiver stress and also helping patients recover from illness, the Lunder building uses a variety of sound-absorbing materials and techniques to make patient floors 35% quieter than typical healthcare buildings. Other features designed to minimize noise include sliding doors, distribution of work areas for clinical staff on the floor rather than in one place, and elevators and visitor waiting areas located away from patient rooms.

Finally, personnel safety is perhaps the most critical “convenience” of all. For example, overuse – in the form of repetitive routine physical tasks such as bending, stretching and standing – accounts for 45.6% of all injuries suffered by nurses, according to a 2018 study. article published by the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics. These injuries can lead to musculoskeletal conditions such as sprains and strains which accounted for 8,730 days lost from work among private sector nurses in 2016. Features such as motorized overhead patient lifts or glass doors height that provide better situational awareness can help reduce injuries.

Designing buildings this way makes a difference. For example, post-occupancy data from the new inpatient units and NBBJ staff work areas designed for Atrium Health indicate that the vast majority of employees feel safer and more comfortable at work. In the same post-occupancy evaluation, employees cited “the collaborative nature of the research floor”, “increased interaction with colleagues” and “improved team collaboration” as positive aspects of the new building, further illustrating that opportunities for collaboration and interaction are improving. employee satisfaction.

Lesson 2: Design features can reduce stress in key workspaces.

Many hospitals are embracing support spaces that allow people to choose how they spend their precious break time. These spaces, both “off-stage” (where staff can congregate or be alone) and “on-stage” (where caregivers see patients), allow staff to spend less time navigating a building and more time to unwind.

Loma Linda University Medical Center Expansion in Southern California boasts an open-core design. It features wide hallways, access to daylight, and the distribution of patient rooms and supplies along the wings, allowing staff to better connect with each other and with patients. In open-core hospitals, major support functions such as staff lockers, break rooms, and conference rooms reside in a centralized hub that connects to patient wings along the exterior. This arrangement reduces the need for staff to move between patient rooms and supply rooms, the type of inefficient and repetitive physical tasks that can lead to burnout.

In addition to open-core designs, collaborative clinician rooms – such as the MGH’s new Cambridge Street project examination rooms, which are sized to allow for multidisciplinary consultations – reflect the evolving nature of medicine. Collaborative clinician spaces reduce the burden on caregivers and their teams while providing patients with a new, more efficient way to navigate their medical journey.

In the future, these recharging spaces could take different forms, recognizing that everyone refuels in a different way. For instance, because the availability of private spaces It has been shown to reduce caregiver stress. Some hospitals are exploring restorative areas with nap areas for their staff that would be located close to the patient unit for ease of use.

Lesson 3: Good design is ultimately good for business.

Health systems such as Montage Health on the Monterey Peninsula are taking advantage of their less densely populated location by integrating nature into the design of their buildings. For instance, Ohana Assembly Center the garden-like environment and private patios for staff are designed to reduce levels of arousal fatigue – the psychological exhaustion that results from sustained stimulation without a break. Arousal fatigue is one of the main factors contributing to burnout in behavioral health care providers, who have an annual turnover rate of 40%.

Other organizations are exploring solutions such as satellite food lockers, mobile ordering apps, and meal programs that offer discounts on nutritious food options. These types of design interventions are investments in staff longevity; they help reduce stress and encourage positive lifestyle choices, thereby promoting the mental and physical well-being of those tasked with helping others recover.

Behavioral health issues existed before the pandemic and will persist after it is over. Therefore, as healthcare systems grapple with the lingering effects of the pandemic, it is more important than ever that they shift to a more caregiver-centric mindset. Only by creating spaces and implementing solutions that support both staff wellness and patient healing can they effectively retain and recruit staff and reduce the financial impact of burnout and turnover. Designing buildings to improve employee well-being will help keep them satisfied and productive.

The dissipation of the COVID-19 pandemic has made face masks primarily a fashion accessory under the chin or a catch-all in the back pocket. Yet COVID-19 is playing tricks on common sense as New York City drops its mask mandate for small children while Glacier National Park reinstates one for wilderness hikers. If, as science predicts, the virus is to become a cyclical cold-season peril, the effectiveness of respiratory barriers as a first line of defense against the virus should be reconsidered. New research highlights their inability to protect.

A study described in the journal Medicine, first published in February, looked at death rates from COVID-19 in Kansas, where counties were given the option to implement or waive mask mandates. . With 81 of 105 counties in the “Sunflower State” opting out, researchers studied data collected between August 1 and October 15, 2020, concluding: “The most important finding of this study is that unlike the accepted thought that fewer people are dying because infection rates are reduced by masks, this was not the case.

Instead, the study found evidence that counties with mask mandates suffered a 50% higher COVID-19 death rate than those without. The hypothetical cause: The virus lodges in the wearer’s mask, only to be inhaled deeper into the lungs, where it is more likely to cause death. The phenomenon has been dubbed the “Foegen effect”, after a German scientist who first theorized about virulent dynamics.

Similar evidence of mask failure emerged in an April study published in the National Library of Medicine. Studying data collected from 35 European countries, the researchers found that “widespread use of masks at a time when effective intervention was most needed, i.e. during the strong fall-winter 2020 peak -2021, was unable to reduce transmission of COVID-19 Moreover, the moderate positive correlation between mask use and deaths in Western Europe also suggests that universal mask use may have had unintended harmful consequences.

The findings of the studies are worrying. Attempting to “follow the science” during the pandemic, Americans have been forced into a game of hide and seek with the facts. White House chief medical adviser Anthony Fauci and other medical officials have notoriously discouraged mask use before making the use of one, two and more a symbol of social virtue. And the public was again puzzled when the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention first advised travelers to mask up to protect against a recent outbreak of monkeypox, then removed the advice as unnecessary.

If the face covering fails as a protective device, it nevertheless has its uses. Joe Biden, for his part, has made the mask the logo of his presidency. Mr. Biden took the stage at “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” last week sporting his signature black mask. Pausing momentarily to seal the symbol, he removed it to defend policies driving the US economy into recession.

Of course, pointing out virtue is not a crime. Lacking evidence of effectiveness against COVID-19, however, face masks should be a choice, not a mandate.

Want to keep oily skin at bay during the monsoon? Here are easy skin care tips | fashion trends https://bkmasks.com/want-to-keep-oily-skin-at-bay-during-the-monsoon-here-are-easy-skin-care-tips-fashion-trends/ Sun, 12 Jun 2022 04:38:57 +0000 https://bkmasks.com/want-to-keep-oily-skin-at-bay-during-the-monsoon-here-are-easy-skin-care-tips-fashion-trends/ With the monsoon season almost upon us, it is necessary to make some changes in our skincare routine as the monsoon brings about increased levels of humidity which could be the worst enemy for people with oily skin and can lead to the production of excess sebum by their sebaceous glands. which makes the skin […]]]>

With the monsoon season almost upon us, it is necessary to make some changes in our skincare routine as the monsoon brings about increased levels of humidity which could be the worst enemy for people with oily skin and can lead to the production of excess sebum by their sebaceous glands. which makes the skin oily. Not a pleasant sight, right? Since the skin is oily, it can also lead to the accumulation of more dirt, grime and other impurities causing breakouts.

If you’ve been looking for tips to keep excess fat at bay during the monsoon, welcome to the right place as we’ve sorted you with ultimate skincare tips and hacks from monsoon beauty experts for fight unwanted oil and display smooth, healthy and glowing skin. In an interview with HT Lifestyle, Deep Lalvani, Founder of Sublime Life, said, “You can also opt for products that contain ingredients like tea tree oil, green tea, or aloe vera, which are mostly antibacterial in nature or the most clarifying. essentials based on kaolin clay or bentonite. We also suggest not wearing heavy makeup or going to bed with makeup on – it just invites bacteria to damage your skin.

He added: “We know that battling oil and grease on your face can be a little tricky, especially with the weather and high humidity, but with the right products in your stash and the best advice, navigating through the monsoon season is a walk in the park!” Suggesting making some changes to your skincare regimen, checking out what works best for your skin type, and giving you the best results and hold on to it, he shared:

1. Don’t forget to clean- Yes, it is important to cleanse your face in the morning but during the monsoon you can do it two or three times a day to get rid of impurities from your face. Just make sure you don’t use a harsh chemical-based cleaner. It is important to unclog clogged pores and let them breathe a little. We also recommend a double cleanse as it is guaranteed to effectively remove all oil and dirt from your skin.

2. Don’t let your skin dry out – Monsoons are no reason not to use moisturizer. Don’t skip a moisturizer at all and opt for something lightweight that easily blends into your skin and hydrates it without a greasy end result.

3. Toners are essential – Make it a priority to use a gentle, exfoliating toner. Toning your skin maintains pH balance and gets rid of excess oil. It also helps clarify all remaining traces of impurities and prevents the appearance of acne.

4. Mud mask your way to fame – If there’s one product that definitely completes your monsoon skincare routine, it’s a mud mask or you can also opt for a clay mask. With antibacterial and exfoliating properties, they deeply clean pores, absorb unwanted oil and firm your skin.

According to Mansi Vyas, co-founder of Azafran, “Humidity can cause several skin problems during the monsoon and if you already have oily skin, you need to be very careful about it.” She listed a few things you need to instill in your daily routine to keep your skin clear, soft and glowing even during the monsoon:

1. Avoid rubbing – Since the weather is already humid, the skin will be wet, repeatedly rubbing it may damage your skin barrier. Gently scrub your skin once a week with a gentle scrub.

2. Don’t skip the moisturizer – You might feel like your skin doesn’t need moisturizer during this season, but it’s extremely necessary to keep it hydrated so that your oil glands don’t secrete extra oil. Keeping the skin hydrated also keeps the skin barrier intact, which helps prevent irritation and acne.

3. Use mud masks – Mud/clay is rich in minerals and has the unique ability to absorb excess oil from your skin. Use mud face masks twice a week to keep your skin looking healthy and glowing without the greasy!

4. Don’t forget the sunscreen – Whatever the season, UVA and UVB rays can damage your skin and induce pigmentation, wrinkles and reduce skin elasticity. So even if you don’t leave the house and there’s no sun, be sure to apply sunscreen every day.

Megha Asher, co-founder and COO of Juicy Chemistry, said that as the monsoons arrive, most of us have oilier skin – due to increased humidity and acne-related problems. She too added to the list of tips on how to manage skin during the monsoon:

1. Use light hydration – Toners and gels are your best friends during the humid months. Aloe vera gel, for example, is a great option. Aloe Vera is moisturizing, soothing and rich in vitamins and minerals. Similarly, you can also opt for Rosewater and Aloe Vera toners. Both work well for oily skin and rose water is also known to help reduce the appearance of pores and brighten skin.

2. Don’t overdo the cleaning – Most people tend to assume that the best way to keep skin from getting oilier is to constantly wash and cleanse it. Opt for gentle cleansers with nourishing ingredients that cleanse the skin without stripping away moisture.

3. Use the right assets – If you have oily, acne-prone skin, a BHA serum could make a huge difference. BHAs or Beta Hydroxy Acids are oil-soluble exfoliating acids that help remove dirt, grime, and excess oil from your pores, soothe and control acne, and help balance the skin.

4. Use a detoxifying and purifying mask – Once or twice a week, treat yourself to a little TLC and get masked! Face masks are a great way to nourish and detoxify the skin. Opt for antioxidant-rich ingredients and clay-based masks.

5. Never skip sunscreen – Whatever the weather, sun protection is a must, and choosing the right sunscreen can also help balance your skin’s oil production.

Several years ago, a group of people approached me about doing a local radio show. The principle was simple. Nashville was open to a radio show talking about the family and life issues we all face from a common-sense, Christian-based approach. (Their words, not mine). The idea was tempting. I thought that would be pretty fun. That is, until I talked to a friend of mine.

“You’re going to hate this,” he said. I was curious. Why was he so sure that I would hate it? “Think about it,” he said. “The only way to make a radio show work is to make people so mad that they stop what they’re doing and call in to yell at you. Making people mad is how you stay on the air .” The radio only works when people are angry. Tennessee fans hate Alabama fans. Alabama fans hate Tennessee fans. That’s what makes the sports show work.

I hadn’t thought of it that way, but he was right. From political commentators to sports announcers, radio personalities have to say something so provocative and infuriating that you’ll drop everything you’re doing, pick up your phone and yell at the radio hosts while you try to convince them to your way of thinking. That’s what makes these shows work. Everyone listens to the show waiting for someone to call and argue. The show’s success depends on the hosts’ ability to drive people crazy. Tennessee fans hate Alabama fans. Alabama fans hate Tennessee fans. That’s what makes the sports show work.

It’s the same with political radio. You have to drive people crazy. The political media trades in anger. They don’t seek to inform. Ratings are not made with information. Success is found in anger. Our media make their living by peddling anger. The right says the left is guilty. The left says the right is guilty. It’s always someone else’s fault and we all end up mad. What else. We stay mad. We are crazy when we come home. We are crazy when we go to work. We are crazy when we go to church.

My wife and I, along with many people we know, turned off our social media and most news programs because we ended up being angry all the time. We were angry with people who weren’t vaccinated. We were angry with people who demanded that we get vaccinated. Wear a mask? You don’t wear a mask? I was angry with the government officials. I was desperate to hear something from government officials. I was angry and frustrated all the time.

My wife and I have agreed to disable all such platforms and programs to maintain our mental well-being.

I ended up turning everything off the other day. News of the school shooting in Texas was breaking and everyone was angry. Some people wanted to ban guns and others said we couldn’t do anything about guns because of the Second Amendment. I was overwhelmed with grief and anger. Everyone was too. People were calling radio stations and shouting into television cameras. Everyone was angry and the commentators made sure we all heard them.

Now, what happens to all that anger? One thing we know about anger is that it doesn’t go away. If you don’t deal with your anger, it deals with you.

Take what we know about the shooter. He is a lonely young man who had few friends, who was bullied and then somehow radicalized on the internet. He got angry and what did he do with his anger?

I am not a politician. I am a pastor. And our anger? What do we do with anger before it leads to action?

First, we need to disconnect from a culture that uses anger as a business model. Newscasts and radio shows don’t help us become more Christlike, and if something doesn’t help us become more Christlike, we throw it away. Jesus was serious. If your hand keeps you from following Christ, cut it off. If your eye is giving you trouble, gouge it out. The truth is simple. Everything that comes between you and Jesus must go.

Second, we must understand that anger will sooner or later lead to action. No one is bubbling with anger. Sooner or later, anger will require expression in action. Remember Jesus said if we hated our brother, we were guilty of killing our brother? This is what Jesus understood about human nature. Once angry, if the anger is not contained, the anger will continue to flow. Hateful thoughts, left unattended, quickly become hateful actions.

Third, we must live deeply in the peace of Christ. It’s not just a preacher’s speech. It is a deep and very real state of being. Because we are loved in Christ, because we are appreciated in his grace, we need nothing from anyone else. We have God’s validation by His Spirit and what we have the world cannot take from us. We are never under threat from the world around us. This deep reality gives us the ultimate freedom to live in our world.

We are free to love our neighbors without needing anything in return from them. We can diffuse their anger by the constant calm of the Spirit of God. As we live in the freedom of Christ, we invite others to do the same. We can be free from anger and free others from their anger as well.

And it starts with putting away those things designed to waste our lives in senseless anger. This includes social media and anything that continues to make you angry. We all get angry, but anger is never a license to sin. We are all responsible for our actions, no matter who drove us crazy.

A new cover highlighting Doctor DoomHellfire Gala’s new costume shows that while he’s often mistakenly dismissed as a one-note villain, he has some unique qualities that make him a joy in the right hands, and a character MCU fans should look forward to. not lacking in favor of bigger but less idiosyncratic big baddies.

Victor von Doom is the Fantastic Four’s arch nemesis – a master wizard, genius scientist and brutal dictator whose political clout means that while his plans can be stopped, he’s usually free to move on to the next one. Doom’s defining characteristic is his immense arrogance, outwardly believing himself to be the smartest, noblest man on the planet while secretly being driven into distraction by the knowledge that Reed Richards, aka Mister Fantastic, is his best. But one area where Doom can never be beaten is his iron will – a trait that has seen him humiliate the Marvel gods of Galactus to the Beyonder, become the god of all reality, and destroy an entire universe rather than forgive. his enemies.

In the hands of lesser creators, Doctor Doom is a pontificating blower who is identical to any other villain, but many writers and artists use Victor’s aristocratic outlook as the key to making him one of Marvel’s most enjoyable characters. Doom is a cold-hearted killer, but it’s central to his identity that he’s also a gentleman, leading to hilarious and cordial relationships with many heroes, including political discussions with Captain America, fine dining with X -Men’s Storm and acting as a sincere support. “uncle” to Valeria Richards, the daughter of his nemesis. While frustration quickly shatters his honorable facade, Doom’s genuine sense of superiority makes him the perfect foil for so many heroes, and that arrogance is brought to 11 in his incredible costume for the Hellfire gala, designed by Russell Dauterman and appearing on the artist’s variant cover for Fantastic Four #45by Dan Slott and Andrea Di Vito.


The suit sees Doctor Doom dressed in finery for the X-Men’s annual Hellfire Gala – a political event that promises to be full of intrigue. Characters from Captain America and She-Hulk to real-life celebrities are expected, with heroes and villains sporting high fashion redesigns of their costumes. While Dauterman’s designs are usually jaw-dropping, Doctor Doom’s huge fur stole, angular mask, and militaristic brocade outfit go straight to the heart of his incredible arrogance. Like the MCU’s mirror image of Tony Stark, Doom’s gift for put-downs means that a highlight of the Hellfire gala will simply be watching him interact with a room full of people he despises (a situation made all the more more desirable by a preview that suggests Spider-Man will be pushing his buttons during the event.)


Although it’s easy to see Doctor Doom as just a villain yelling “RICHARDS!” at the slightest provocation, his arrogance makes him incredibly versatile, whether he’s stealing secrets from the gods assuming no one else can handle them, or struggling with the indignity of being traded with Rocket Raccoon. Doctor Doom is one of the few Marvel villains who can be legitimately funny and intimidating without sacrificing one for the other. MCU Fans Should Hope The Movies’ Cosmic Threats Don’t Mean They’re Missing Doctor Doomis unparalleled verbal sparring, but either way, the upcoming Hellfire Gala event promises to portray him at his pompous and dismissive best.

Of the two major blockbuster superhero franchises, the DC Extended Universe has earned a reputation for being too dark and important. Much darker than its Marvel Cinematic Universe rival, DCEU movies have become notorious for taking themselves too seriously, especially in installments like Steel man Where Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

However, the franchise is not all black. The DCEU has several lighter films, and even its darkest films often have brief moments of levity. While the humor is often dark, there are still several scenes across the DCEU that leave audiences in stitches.

ten The Horrible Landing in Corto Maltese (The Suicide Squad)

Unlike the uneven tone of suicide squadthe quasi-sequel reboot The Suicide Squad settles into an overall dark comedy tone while still allowing time for emotional or powerful moments. The Suicide Squad the opening moments tell audiences what kind of movie this is with undeniably horrifying comedy.

Following the first team’s unfortunate landing in Corto Maltese, the scene is a violent massacre played for laughs. Everything goes wrong, characters display weird and totally unnecessary powers, and things go downhill to the point that Harley Quinn is one of the most sane people caught up in the carnage.

9 Harley Quinn takes on the GCPD in violent hilarity (Birds Of Prey)

Harley Quinn has proven herself to be one of the most comical characters in the DCEU, making several films with her unusual and goofy antics. As the main character of Birds of preyHarley launches an assault on the Gotham City Police Department to rescue Cassandra Cain, which leads to an unusually comedic action sequence.

RELATED: Birds Of Prey: 5 Things We Loved (& 5 Things We Didn’t)

Showcasing Harley’s unconventional approach, self-aware storytelling, and contrasting her weirdness with the banality of the GCPD, the scene contains plenty of comedy and impressive fight choreography. Harley uses a bat and beanbags as weapons instead of guns, which keeps the scene funny, rather than an outright massacre of cops and prisoners.

8 Diana Prince walking in a bath Steve Trevor (Wonder Woman)

An essential part of wonder woman is the chemistry between Diana Prince and Steve Trevor, which works well for comedic and romantic purposes. In one of their first scenes, Diana meets Steve as he finishes his bath.

Between Diana’s inexperience with men and Steve’s bemused reaction to the situation, there’s plenty of comedy to draw rapport between the two. Highlights include a misunderstanding involving Steve’s watch, entirely accidental innuendo, and Steve being used as a reference to the other men.

seven Aquaman meets bikers in a bar (Aquaman)

Jason Momoa’s Aquaman is one of the most comedic characters in the DCEU. He is a bad-tempered but good-natured thug who often gets caught up in the moment, growls at those around him, and impersonates a fool on a semi-frequent basis.

At first Aquaman, Arthur is trying to have a drink with his father when some tough-talking bikers approach. Just when a fight seems inevitable, they ask for a selfie and end up drinking with Arthur. What follows is a photo montage as the group gets drunker and friendlier.

6 Perry White generously growls at his reporters (Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice)

Despite being played by Laurence Fishburne, Perry White has had a surprisingly low amount of screen time in the DCEU. Nevertheless, in Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justicehe reverts to a more comedic characterization that comic book fans recognize: a headline-seeking editor who frequently mocks his reporters in a deadpan way.

RELATED: Batman V. Superman: Wonder Woman’s Entrance (& 9 Other Scenes From The Great Dawn Of Justice)

In a scene where Clark attempts to open an investigation into Batman, Perry repeatedly cuts him down. Whether it’s poking fun at the idea that a crime wave in Gotham is newsworthy or meta-humor about no one wanting to see Clark Kent take on Batman, the scene is one of lightest scenes of a film criticized for its lack of lightness.

5 Black Mask interrogating Harley Quinn (Birds Of Prey)

One of the DCEU’s most comedic villains is Roman Sionis, also known as Black Mask. In a departure from the comics, he is portrayed as a picky, mean-spirited, and nervous villain who is easily upset and very easily angered. While he can muster a legitimate threat, the character tends towards comedy – especially when faced with Harley Quinn, a gadfly.

Amid Birds of prey, Sionis is about to interrogate Harley in an attempt to get her diamond back. Harley’s antics contrasting with Sionis’ petulant demeanor make for a surprisingly funny scene – and that’s before it turns into a long, inexplicable sequence of song and dance on “Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend”.

4 Shazam testing his powers (Shazam!)

One of the central concepts of Shazam! is that its hero, Billy Batson, is a teenager who can become an adult superhero. Shazam! is more explicitly comedic than most DCEUs, being a mostly lighthearted film with plenty of time set aside for humorous settings.

In a long sequence, after Billy gains his superpowers, he and his friend Freddie begin testing them extensively. From shooting lightning bolts at things and buying booze using his adult guise, to sneaking into an adult club and getting shot in the face with Billy, the whole scene is played for prolonged laughs. It’s a fun and accurate example of what teens could do with superpowers.

3 Diana on the boat with Steve (Wonder Woman)

Much of the comedy in wonder woman comes from the entirely different worlds that Diana and Steve inhabit, each completely bewildered by things the other finds normal. As they leave Themyscira by boat, they get to know each other better, and Steve becomes increasingly disarmed by what Diana says.

From the discussion of Diana being made of clay and brought to life by Zeus to the debate about the need for men in a romantic and sexual relationship, Diana forces Steve to give several double takes, seemingly unwittingly. The result is a scene that’s as sweet as it is comically entertaining.

2 Flag and Bloodsport trying to save Harley (The Suicide Squad)

After the beach massacre, the soldiers of Corto Maltese take Harley prisoner. After killing the dictator who wishes to marry her, she ends up being imprisoned and tortured. The other team members on the island hatched a plan to rescue her, which involves an elaborate break-in by Rick Flag and Bloodsport.

As they prepare to enter, Harley walks past them, having single-handedly butchered her exit. Flag is deeply disappointed, and he and Bloodsport consider it “patronizing” when Harley offers to get caught again so they can carry out their plan. It’s one of the many defining moments in a funny movie.

1 The opening credits of Peacemaker is nonsense in a serious way (Peacemaker)

take after The Suicide Squad, Peacemaker is a comedy-filled spectacle, focusing on one of this film’s most rigid and deadpan characters. The entire show is full of fun sequences, moments, and exchanges, but its opening credits sequence is one of the standout and funniest things about Peacemaker.

It features the entire cast doing a dance number in a parody of countless other opening titles. Due to the characterization and subject matter of the series, they do this in the stiffest and least humorous way possible. The absurdity of their well-choreographed dance, juxtaposed with the lack of enthusiasm from each of them, creates a perfect set of opening credits that let the audience know what to expect.

Monsoon Beauty Regimen 2022: Skincare Tips to Beat Humidity | fashion trends https://bkmasks.com/monsoon-beauty-regimen-2022-skincare-tips-to-beat-humidity-fashion-trends/ Sun, 05 Jun 2022 06:17:01 +0000 https://bkmasks.com/monsoon-beauty-regimen-2022-skincare-tips-to-beat-humidity-fashion-trends/ It is not easy to keep beautiful skin during monsoon because monsoons bring a lot of humidity which is not good for your skin.

It is not easy to keep beautiful skin during monsoon because monsoons bring a lot of humidity which is not good for your skin. Humidity makes skin sticky which invites pimples, acne and oily skin and hence when it comes to taking care of your skin during monsoons you need to step up your skin care game. the skin.

During monsoons, dust storms and high humidity cause skin problems, especially for oily or combination skin. As sweat and oil secretions settle on the skin, oily skin appears even more oily and dull and dirt and air pollutants are attracted to clammy skin. In an interview with HT Lifestyle, Pooja Nagdev, Founder of Inatur, advised, “To keep pores free of oil and clogged dirt, deep pore cleansing with facial scrubs is essential. Accordingly, a facial scrub should be used twice a week. Apply it to your face and gently rub it into your skin in a circular motion. Then rinse thoroughly with clear water. Mix rice flour or ground almonds with curd and a pinch of turmeric to make a homemade face scrub. The scrub should not be used on pimples, acne or rashes. Wash your face several times with clean water. To remove the impurities that have accumulated on the skin during the day, cleaning in the evening is essential.

In humid weather, a flower-based toner or air freshener is a godsend. Pooja Nagdev recommends: “Rose water can be used as a natural toner. Keep the skin toner or rose water in the refrigerator and use cotton pads to wipe the face with it. It is very refreshing and also helps tighten pores. The skin can be prone to blackheads and breakouts in humid weather. On areas prone to blackheads, a face scrub should be used. The scrub can also be used to treat open pores and acne scars. Mix oats and egg white into a paste and apply on face twice a week. Wash your face with a medicated cleanser if you have a rash, pimple, or acne. Use a skin toner or an astringent lotion mixed in equal parts with rose water. Refrigerate the mixture in an airtight bottle. Apply sandalwood paste to the rashes and eruptions with a few drops of rose water. An hour can be spent simmering a handful of neem leaves in 4 cups of water over very low heat. Let it sit for a day. The next morning, strain the liquid and use it to wash your face. To treat the affected areas, make a paste from the leaves and apply it to the affected areas.

Since Multani mitti can help reduce oiliness if your skin is very oily, Pooja Nagdev shared, “Make a paste with it and some rose water, then apply it on your face and wash it off after that. she dried up. To make a monsoon mask, mix together 3 teaspoons of oatmeal, 1 teaspoon of honey, and 1 teaspoon of curd. Add rose water or orange juice instead of egg white if you don’t want to use it. Apply it on your face and leave it on for half an hour before washing it off. It should be used twice a week. Lemon and orange peels, dried and powdered, can also be used in face masks. Use cloth face masks often. They help moisturize the skin while closing open pores. Sweating causes the body to lose fluids during monsoons. Drink plenty of water to keep your system flushed. In addition to water, drink plenty of lemonade and fresh fruit juice. Avoid eating a lot of starches. Salads, fruits, sprouts and yogurts should all be part of your daily diet.

Bringing her expertise to the same, Sanchi Sehgal, Founder of Ozone Signature, listed 5 monsoon skincare tips to combat humidity:

1. Cleaning – The humidity that accompanies the monsoon makes the skin oily and sticky. Dust and dirt, along with excess sebum produced by the skin, clog pores, causing acne and aggravating pre-existing conditions. Cleanse your face at least 2-3 times a day with a gentle facial cleanser suitable for your skin type to maintain a fresh and healthy complexion.

2. Exfoliating – Your monsoon skincare routine should include exfoliation. Exfoliate your skin to remove dead skin cells and unclog pores. Exfoliation is necessary for people with oily skin because oily skin accumulates more dirt and debris than other skin types. It helps slough off dead skin cells while giving skin a healthy glow. Rubbing your skin 2-3 times a week improves blood circulation, which helps eliminate toxins. Once the layer of dead skin cells has been removed, your skincare products will be absorbed more easily.

3. Toning – Oily Skin Toner removes remaining oil residue and pollutants from cleansing. It reduces the size of enlarged pores caused by excessive oil production. This reduces the appearance of pores and gives the skin a smooth and even complexion.

4. Moisturizing – It’s important to remember that just because your skin is oily and sticky doesn’t mean you shouldn’t moisturize it. One of the main reasons skin looks dull during the monsoon is the lack of a decent moisturizer. During monsoons, apply a gel-based moisturizer, especially if you have oily or combination skin. The hydrating gels penetrate quickly without leaving the skin sticky or oily.

5. Don’t skip the sunscreen – Even in this weather, you should apply sunscreen every day. Apply a good amount of SPF whether it’s cloudy or not to protect yourself from the sun’s harmful rays. To protect your skin, apply a water-resistant sun gel. Also, apply sunscreen 20 minutes before going out.
