5 Weird Laws In Switzerland

Ah, Switzerland. I have never heard a bad word about this country. With her natural beauty, peaceful co-existence, beautiful snow capped mountains. Do they have some weird laws? Let’s see:

You can’t ruin the life of your child with a ridiculous name

The Swiss are intent on forcing you to care about your child’s future and the authorities apparently have to approve baby names. Specifically, “you aren’t allowed to harm the child’s well-being or be offensive to a third party” with the name. So you aren’t allowed to brand your nice, shiny baby with a name like Prada or do a Kanye and dub your spawn like a compass direction. This one is probably for the best.

You can’t urinate standing up after 10pm

Strangely enough, this applies to men. Apparently, this heinous act causes too much noise and can disrupt other citizens during their allocated sleeping times. Gentlemen, take a seat.

You can’t flush the toilet after 10pm

This one is apparently at the discretion of landlords who are allowed free reign to set their own rules on many things. You probably won’t be chucked in a jail cell but you could get a stern telling off, and nobody likes that.

You have to pay a tax for your dog

That’s right, dogs are taxed in Switzerland. Some cantons charge a flat rate while others tax you according to the dog’s size and weight. In 2011, officials in the small town of Reconvilier dusted off a law from 1904 that said dogs could be killed if their owners didn’t pay the annual tax, but they saw the light after protests from across the country and abroad. Inhabitants still have to pay the tax, mind you. Thanks, Fluffy.

You must have a buddy for your pets

If you plan to bring your favourite fluffy friend to Switzerland, you might want to get it a playmate. In 2005, the Swiss passed a law to ensure that all “social animals” (Guinea pigs, goldfish and budgerigars are cited as examples) have the company of their own kind and aren’t kept in too small cages.

Arsenal 1 Leicester City 1

Jamie Vardy’s late equaliser gave Leicester City a vital point to keep their Champions League hopes on track and end Arsenal’s recent winning streak. The Gunners looked on course for a fifth successive victory to maintain their own outside chance of a place in Europe’s elite competition next season after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang swept in his 20th league goal of the season in the first half. Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel kept Arsenal at bay with a string of fine saves before the interval, twice denying Alexandre Lacazette as well as Bukayo Saka – and it proved to be a vital contribution.

Arsenal were reduced to 10 men with 15 minutes left when Eddie Nketiah was sent off four minutes after coming on as substitute for a high challenge on James Justin, and Leicester cashed in when Vardy slid home Demarai Gray’s cross in the 84th minute, the goal finally awarded after a lengthy VAR check for offside. It was Vardy’s 22nd league strike of the season and restored his two-goal advantage over Aubameyang at the top of the Premier League scoring charts. Leicester drop to fourth, four points ahead of Manchester United having played a game more, but this was an important point that left Arsenal frustrated in seventh.

Arsenal’s recent run of league wins, away at Southampton and Wolverhampton Wanderers and at home to Norwich City, sparked hopes they could force their way into the Champions League places, especially with the lingering possibility of Manchester City being banned from the competition. Their hopes will have risen once more as they held the lead in impressive fashion but in the end Vardy’s equaliser left manager Mikel Arteta cutting a frustrated figure at the final whistle.

There is, however, still plenty to admire about how Arsenal are developing under Arteta, especially teenager Saka, whose superb delivery for Aubameyang’s goal was his 12th Premier League assist this season, with only Kevin de Bruyne (19) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (14) ahead of him. Arsenal have a potent striker in Aubameyang and there is a tempo and focus about their play that certainly has Arteta’s stamp – he will still feel the pain of those lost points so late on.

Like TVM, Cochin May Too Go Into Triple Lockdown

Kerala’s capital Thiruvananthapuram was placed under a weeklong ‘triple lockdown’ starting July 6 after several Covid-19 cases turned up without a specific origin of infection. This has led to fears of a local transmission of the virus within the city. The areas falling under the jurisdiction of the Thiruvananthapuram Corporation will witness an effective containment strategy devised by the Kerala Police seeking to suspend the movement of the public and allow more time for health officials to carry out contact tracing measures. The ‘triple lockdown’ strategy entails focused interventions by the police at three different levels to minimise the impact of the community spread, if present, or prevent it altogether.

Due to the number of infected people rising, Kochi too may go into a triple lockdown as far the news indicates. The first lock is a general containment strategy to prevent the movement of the people all over the area. Except for one road for entry/exit, all other roads and bylanes leading to the area are shut down using barricades and police officers posted for security. Public transport is suspended. Private transport is allowed only for essential purposes. While grocery, vegetable stores and medical shops are allowed to operate, the public are advised to remain at home and call helpline numbers for doorstep delivery of services. Police officials and volunteers will engage in such services. People stepping out of their homes for essential reasons must carry signed declaration forms stating why they are outside. Police officers will verify such documents and allow them if found valid.

Criminal cases and fines will be imposed if people are found violating the lockdown without valid reasons. Movement of trucks carrying essential supplies, medical personnel, journalists, defence and health personnel, taxis ferrying people from railway stations and airports will be allowed. Government offices, religious places and educational institutions will remain shut.

The second lock is on the specific geographical areas called clusters where primary and secondary contacts of the infected persons are staying in quarantine. These are essentially containment zones where there will be intensified police presence. The third lock involves much more focused intervention on the households of the infected persons and well as those of their primary and secondary contacts. These are persons who are at greater risk of transmitting the virus to a large number of people. While those who test positive are ferried off to hospitals, asymptomatic primary or secondary contacts are monitored strictly so that they don’t step out of home.

Ma (2019)

Ma is a 2019 American psychological horror film produced, co-written and directed by Tate Taylor. It stars Octavia Spencer, Juliette Lewis, Diana Silvers, Corey Fogelmanis, and Luke Evans, and follows a group of teenagers who befriend a lonely middle-aged woman. She lets them party in her basement, and they end up being terrorized by her. The film was produced by Jason Blum through his Blumhouse Productions company, along with Tate Taylor and John Norris.

Teenager Maggie Thompson moves with her mother Erica to her Ohio hometown after Erica’s husband leaves her. At her new high school, Maggie befriends Haley, Darrell, Chaz, and Andy, the latter of whom immediately develops a crush on her. They convince Sue Ann “Ma” Ellington, a veterinary technician, to help buy them alcohol because they are underage. Sue Ann anonymously reports the teenagers’ activities, but they are released because of the officer’s history with Andy’s father, Ben. The next day, Sue Ann invites the teenagers to drink in her basement. The next time they go, Sue Ann has decorated her basement and lots of other teenagers show up at her house to party, making her popular among the students. However, her hospitality starts to annoy the group as she continuously harasses them to spend time with her. One night, Sue Ann sees Andy and Maggie kissing and becomes jealous; she is in love with him, having had a crush on his father, Ben, in high school. She drugs Maggie and takes her earrings. The next morning, Maggie wakes up and notices her earrings are missing and is badly bruised and cut. Scared, Maggie tells Andy that she does not want to go to Sue Ann’s house anymore and that she does not want him to go, either.

To earn the group’s trust back, Ma lies to them that she has pancreatic cancer. As she is talking, Haley notices that she is wearing a bracelet that belongs to a friend of theirs. The girls suspect that Sue Ann has been stealing their jewelry so they go to her house to investigate. They are surprised by Genie, Sue Ann’s daughter from a failed marriage; Maggie is surprised to see her walking, as she uses a wheelchair at school. Genie tells them to leave as Sue Ann arrives home, and they narrowly escape. Andy’s father Ben, who went to high school with Sue Ann, shows up at her job to drop off his cat and invites her out for drinks after work. Sue Ann goes home to change and meets him at the bar, where Ben confronts Sue Ann with a tracking device and asks her why his son has been at her house so much. Ben warns Sue Ann to stay away from Andy.

A flashback reveals that Sue Ann, who had a crush on Ben in high school, performed fellatio on him in a closet. Once she left the closet, it turned out that she had been doing it to another boy and Ben had tricked her. Ben had gotten the entire school to witness the event (including his current girlfriend Mercedes and a young Erica), and Sue Ann suffered devastating humiliation, which she never recovered from. An increasingly unstable Sue Ann runs over Mercedes with her truck, killing her. She kills her boss, draws blood from Maggie’s dog Louie, and lures Ben to her house, where she knocks him out. Ben wakes up trapped in her bed; Sue Ann pumps Louie’s blood into his body, slashes his wrist, and leaves him to die. Maggie tells her mother the truth about Sue Ann, and Erica grounds her. Sue Ann sends Maggie a picture of herself with Andy in her basement at Chaz’s birthday party.

She sneaks out of the house to confront him. When she arrives, she notices that everyone has left and that only the original group remain. She tries to get Andy to leave but soon realizes that Andy and the rest of her friends have been drugged. Maggie tries to get help and in the process finds Ben’s body. As she stands there in horror, Sue Ann renders her unconscious. Maggie awakens chained in the basement. Sue Ann irons Chaz’s stomach, sews Haley’s mouth shut, and paints Darrell’s face white. Andy awakens, and tries to seduce Sue Ann, as he is well aware that she is in love with him. She kisses him, but stabs him after realizing that he is lying. A police officer arrives and when Maggie screams for help, Sue Ann shoots him dead before he can react. She then gathers the four friends around the couch with her and makes Maggie take photos of them together in a crude recreation of the friendship Sue Ann always longed for but never had.

Sue Ann then leaves Maggie to be hanged before Genie intervenes. Everyone else wakes up to discover what Sue Ann has done to them but barely have time to react as the house is on fire and need to find a way out. Erica, knowing where Maggie would be, calls her co-worker Stu for help and the two save the teenagers. Sue Ann attempts to throw Genie into the fire, blaming Erica for not stopping Ben from pulling the prank in school. Maggie stabs Sue Ann, saving Genie. The group goes outside and asks what has happened. Sue Ann walks upstairs and lies down next to Ben’s corpse, cuddling with it as the house burns.

I give this movie an 8 outta 10!

Wolverhampton Wanderers 0 Arsenal 2

Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka said he has had a “week I will remember my whole life” after he celebrated signing a new long-term contract by scoring the opener in the Gunners’ victory at Wolves on Saturday. The teenager struck his first Premier League goal with a sweet, left-foot volley to deliver a blow to the hosts’ hopes of Champions League football next season. Arsenal made sure of a fourth successive victory when Alexandre Lacazette capped a fine team display by turning on fellow substitute Joe Willock’s pass and firing emphatically past Wolves keeper Rui Patricio with five minutes left. Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta described Saka as “talented and intelligent” after the player committed his future to the club on Wednesday, and was impressed once again at Molineux. Wolves had been hoping to build on an impressive restart to the season but knew the pressure was on to win after fellow top-four contenders Leicester City and Manchester United had recorded victories earlier in the day.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side were not at their best. Adama Traore had their clearest chance after the break when he raced in on Arsenal keeper Emiliano Martinez from Diogo Jota’s pass, but the Spanish forwrd lifted his finish over the top in wasteful fashion. Wolves are still sixth in the Premier League table on 52 points, but seventh-placed Arsenal are now only three points behind. Spirits have soared at Arsenal since they made a desperate restart to the Premier League season with defeat at Manchester City and then that acrimonious late loss at Brighton, a match that also cost them goalkeeper Bernd Leno. They have since recorded league wins over Southampton and Norwich City, as well as progressing to the FA Cup semi-finals with victory at Sheffield United – but this win at Wolves was the most impressive demonstration yet of Arteta’s growing influence. And it came at the end of a pleasing week for the club with exciting teenagers Saka and Gabriel Martinelli both signing long-term contracts.

Saka showed his quality with that left-foot volley, taken with athleticism, composure and guided cleverly out of Rui Patricio’s reach – but it came amid a fine all-round team performance. Arsenal arrived at Molineux with Wolves storming into contention for the top four after three straight wins – over West Ham United, Bournemouth and Aston Villa – since the season’s resumption. Indeed, such was their form, Saka’s goal was the first they had conceded in 448 minutes. However, Arsenal were resolute, determined and willing to trade in the physical exchanges, and they produced the decisive moments of quality to win the game. It continued the renaissance under Arteta, and while it is wise to keep all optimism in perspective given previous false dawns, this recent run leaves them only six points behind fifth-placed Manchester United, with that position potentially bringing Champions League football if Manchester City’s European ban is upheld.

Work @ Home Extended Again

I got the news late last night after a long day at work and while I was lying in bed and trying to watch some Agents Of SHIELD. A colleague in my team messaged me and asked if I had read the news shared in an announcement email sent by our country head. I hadn’t since I had shut down my system at 11pm and so I got the info that they have declared that those of us who are currently working from home (having got systems from the office) will continue to work from home until December 31st, 2020! They will look at the situation after a while and see if they can make a change but it does not look likely.

In the current situation, as the number of infected people starts going up in India and even in my state and city. I just heard that with 241 fresh cases, Kerala has registered a new Covid 19 peak on Saturday with the coronavirus situation taking a turn for worse in state capital Thiruvananthapuram and port city of Kochi. A worried Indian Medical Association (IMA), Kerala chapter has asked the state government to enforce a strict lockdown in containment areas and restrict movement of people to avert community spread. Saturday’s tally is the biggest single-day spike in the state since the outbreak in January. The total number of cases registered so far in the state has gone up to 5,204. 3,050 of these patients have recovered leaving 2,129 active cases. The state has recorded 25 deaths to the disease so far, said chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan’s office.

The fact that the source of infection is unknown in many cases has worried the state government. The CM said that since the disease was spreading both in urban and rural areas, stricter cubs will be needed to contain it. The government is toying with the idea of enforcing a targeted confinement and triple lockdown in some of the worst-hit areas to check the spread of the contagion. Triple lockdown, a measure considered stricter than curfew allowing only police personnel’s movement, did wonders in containing the spread of the disease in Kasaragod in north Kerala earlier.

Get Anabolic Drugs on Sale and Start Cutting

Big muscles and a lean, sharp body are the goals of every bodybuilder and gym enthusiast. With intensive training, a balanced diet, and quality supplementation, they try to get rid of excess fat deposits. These layers cover the lean tissue and make muscles invisible. Still, every person (even a professional bodybuilder) must have a certain percentage of fat in the body. Simply, this macronutrient is of vital importance for life. Energy is stored in fats. Also, they regulate the inner temperature and are in charge of many other mechanisms in the human body. Find out more about the importance of fats for your health at this link.

Many bodybuilders (especially beginners) first start ripping and then work on building muscles. If you go that way, you should choose quality steroids. These preparations will help you both with gaining lean tissue and eliminating fat. But some of them are more efficient during the cutting cycle.

How Much Fat You Should Lose

It is essential to find a limit to what percentage you should cut fats, without endangering your health. That should be the primary purpose during the cutting cycle. Many steroid novices neglect this fact, as they think of getting ripped body as their only goal. They usually end up with damaged health.

Rapid fat loss is generally not possible without quality supplementation. But sometimes, professional bodybuilders have to lose some weight fast. The advice is to visit a nutritionist before starting the cutting cycle. They will determine the allowable percentage of the body fat to be cut. If you’re thinking about a particular anabolic steroid drugs on sale, medical experts can also give you some thoughts on that.

While you are on a weight loss regimen, you still have to eat enough. It is impossible to build muscle if you lack the essential nutrients in your diet. A calorie deficit is a must if you want to get rid of fat deposits, but try to upgrade this lack with quality and nutritious foods.

Choose the Right Steroid

If your goal is to get rid of excess weight, start cycling. Find preparations that have proven to be great fat-burners. They help the body to use excess fat and convert it into energy. These steroids have the so-called thermogenetic effect. It means these preparations slightly increase the body temperature, without disrupting its balance.

The warmer the body, the more calories it will burn. But when there’s no fuel from food (you reduce calorie intake on the cutting cycle), it will find a new source in fat deposits. Due to the higher temperature, triglycerides will break down and convert into energy. You will use that energy during the intense training sessions and building muscle. So it’s a win-win situation.

On the following source, read how to achieve weight loss and muscle gain at the same time:


Talk to your instructor or supplementation dealer about which steroids are best for cutting cycles. They will suggest to you how to successfully start the cutting cycle and what rules to follow to make the most of steroid use.

Avoid Water Retention

Excess water in your body can be a big problem during the cutting cycle. It is the reason why, despite the calorie deficit, you feel bloated and don’t lose weight. That is why it is essential to know which steroids act on the rapid elimination of excess fluids from the body.

In some performance enhancers, water retention has been declared as a side effect. But, as long as you use steroids properly and gradually increase over the cycle, there is no fear of side effects. Only in this way can you get a healthy and sharp body and improve overall strength and level of performance.

Signs of Water Retention

You will spot water retention according to the appearance of your muscles, but also the slow loss of weight and volume. The tissue filled with water acts like a soaked sponge. It’s quite soft to the touch. These fluffy muscles only look big, but they are weak and won’t help you improve your physique and stamina.

That is not what you want to achieve. Take care of the type of steroid you use. Read labels and always look for further explanations or experiences of other users. If you notice that you are still bloated, even though you’ve been cutting for a while, the steroid you are currently using is not for you. As seen here, you can speed up losing water weight with healthy nutrition.

Steroids can help you shed excess fat. But their intake will not bring results if you are not physically active and don’t work on your body. The goal of exercising is not only to lose excess fat but to tighten and shape the body. You have to show off with all those muscles, as a result of your hard work.

14 Hour Stretch

I have just gotten out of a 14 hour stretch. I switched my work system on at 9 am and got out of work at 11 pm. I shit you not folks! This is easily the worst day in post lockdown. I am so tired that I can feel my eyes thanking me when I finally shot down the work system and could get out of the haze of excel sheets and Webex and conference calls. I was also on an over 60 minutes conference call – 32 minutes of which it was not required for more than half of us to be there!

This company lives on conference calls. I wish I could get out of them but it’s deemed a necessary evil in the months of working from home. Even though some employees are working at the office and a few more might join them, we will not. I most certainly will not for the next month. After that it depends on the situation; if it is good I might be told that I can go to the office and if not then it will be working from home again. The last update we had was that we would continue to work from home till October and only new staff will be working from home as getting them systems to place in their homes would be a little expensive and tough to do.

But yeah I could use a break after this. So I am going to take it easy for the weekend; though I do have some work that I will have to do. I will do that Saturday evening and keep Sunday for total relaxation. Watch a couple of movies and sleep in. That will be good. And I am working 8pm to 5am from the next week.

Smart Ways to Save for Your Future

Saving for the future means safeguarding your assets, planning for your retirement and increasing your capital. While putting money aside every month can be a viable savings plan, you won’t earn much interest on a standard savings account. With the right investments, however, you can increase your capital, generate a substantial amount of interest and look forward to a secure future.

Of course, investments can fall as well as rise, so you’ll need to consider what level of risk you’re comfortable with. While high-risk investments offer high rewards, you could lose a substantial amount if things go wrong. By opting for low or medium-risk investments, however, you can make more modest gains but minimize the danger of losing your capital.

Many people assume that investing is only for people with a substantial amount of capital at the outset. In reality, anyone can choose to invest their money for the future. With endless opportunities available, there are a variety of investments to match all budgets. If you want to prepare for the future, take a look at these smart ways to save…

Buy stocks and shares

Trading on the stock markets allows you to invest in businesses without taking on any managerial responsibility. Although you’ll need to pay a broker when you want to buy or sell, there are relatively low-cost ways of doing this. This means the bulk of your capital can be invested, rather than being spent on unnecessarily high fees and charges.

If you do choose to buy stocks or shares in a company, you’ll need to think carefully about what businesses or industries are predicting to do well in the future. Similarly, you’ll need to consider how long you want to invest your capital for. Although you can sell stocks and shares at any time, you could lose money if you need to access your funds when prices are low.

The stock market can be a risky investment, but it can also offer high rewards. With plenty of information, guides and expert instruction online, you can even become a trader yourself and manage your own share portfolio.

Invest in real estate

If you have the capital to finance a property purchase, it can be a great investment for your future. As well as increasing in value over time, your property could generate rental income, which means you’ll receive short and long-term gains. Although property prices can fall, buying at the right time can make the investment lower risk. As property prices do tend to bounce back over time, many people consider this a relatively low-risk way to invest, providing you won’t need to realize your capital quickly.

When investing in property, it’s important to specify your goals. If you’re investing in order to finance your retirement, you may want to use a real estate IRA guide to help you plan a suitable strategy, for example. Alternatively, if you want to maximize your short-term income, becoming an expert in the rental market might be your best bet.

Purchase cryptocurrency

Cryptocurrency has been a popular alternative investment for some years now and many people have made a high return from this form of investment. However, you will need to spend some time learning more about it if you’re unfamiliar with the concept or the mechanics of it.

The value of cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin or Litecoin, fluctuates all the time so investors need to buy when it’s low and sell when it’s high to make a return. Of course, you’ll need to consider what trading platform you want to use to ensure security and low fees.

It’s worth noting that many jurisdictions are introducing new regulations regarding cryptocurrencies. With varying tax implications, it’s worth investigating how cryptocurrency investments are classified in your area before you decide to invest.

Try spread betting

If you want to invest in the stock market but you don’t want to buy or sell shares, spread betting might be a viable alternative. Instead of acting owning stocks or shares, you simply bet on whether their value will rise or fall. In addition to betting on individual share prices, you can bet on the performance of certain sectors or on the performance of the market as a whole.

Although spread betting seems deceptively simple, it’s advisable to be cautious. You typically bet on how far a price moves in points, so you might bet $100 per 0.1, for example. If you bet the price will rise, you’ll get a better return the higher the price rises. However, if the price falls, you’ll lose the same amount. As stock markets can rise and fall rapidly, you can potentially lose money quickly. By learning how to implement safeguards, such as stop losses, you can reduce this risk and potentially make high returns.

Peer-to-Peer Lending

Peer-to-Peer, or P2P, lending is a relatively new form of investing but it’s one that’s growing in popularity. P2P lending platforms allow people to obtain loans from a variety of individuals. If someone wants to borrow $1,000, for example, they might borrow $100 from ten lenders. You can sign up as a lender as choose to lend as much as you like. With specified interest rates, you stand to get back more than you lend, which means you can increase your capital.

P2P lending platforms have various mechanisms to reduce the risk associated with lending, so you can opt for lower interest rates with reduced risks or higher interest rates with higher risks. Depending on the level of risk you’re comfortable taking, you can make a significant amount by leveraging your capital in this way.

Furthermore, P2P lending provides a good option if you only want to invest in the short-term. Different loan terms mean you can match with a borrower who only requires short-term financing, which will enable you to get your capital back plus interest relatively quickly.

Trade in FOREX

The FOREX market is used to trade currencies and works in a similar way to stock markets. As a global marketplace, you can trade on the foreign exchange market at virtually greenwoods personal credit any time, so it’s ideal for people who want to take an active role in managing their investments.

Currencies trade against each other in pairs on the FX market, so you can trade speculatively and base your decisions on economic, environmental and/or political factors. If you choose to manage your FX investments yourself, you’ll need an in-depth knowledge of current affairs, geopolitical issues and global news. However, there are plenty of communities online designed to help novice traders learn more about trading successfully on the FX market.

Become a seed investor

If you’ve got a head for business, being a seed investor might be the perfect way for you to invest your money. Startups are always looking for financial backing, which is exactly where seed investors come in. Typically, you invest in the company in return for a shareholding or equity stake. Providing the company is successful and continues to grow, you can make a significant return.

Some startups look for more than just financial backing from their seed investors. If you have professional experience in a particular industry or verifiable success in a specific sector, you may be sought out for your credentials too. Depending on your contractual agreement, your role may include giving advice, acting as a mentor or taking a role in the decision-making process that impacts the future of the company.

If you do choose to become a seed investor, be sure to examine all contracts carefully and do your due diligence. A great business idea will only be successful if the company has the right people at the helm and your agreement won’t automatically give you a right to make decisions that affect the running of the company. With the right mix of people, skills and talent, however, seed investments can be a great way to increase your capital and have fun in the process.

Investing in personal loan rate uk the Future

No matter what type of investment you choose to make, it’s important to understand the potential pitfalls you could run into. By researching the various options in detail, you can determine exactly what type of investment matches your interests and the level of risk you want to take.

In addition to this, you’ll need to decide whether you want to take an active role in making investment decisions or whether you’re happy to leave it up to a professional. If you want to invest in the stock market without buying or selling shares yourself, for example, you can invest in an established fund and allow the fund manager to determine how your funds are invested.

Alternatively, you may prefer to manage investments on a day-to-day basis yourself. If so, you’ll need to ensure you have the time and expertise to monitor the markets, predict them accurately and adjust your investments accordingly.

With the right amount of research and a moderate amount of capital, investing can be an excellent way to increase your capital and even generate revenue in the process. If you want to save for your future, finding the right investment opportunity could put you on the fast-track to success.


Jaws is a 1975 American thriller film directed by Steven Spielberg and based on Peter Benchley’s 1974 novel of the same name. In the film, a man-eating great white shark attacks beachgoers at a summer resort town, prompting police chief Martin Brody (Roy Scheider) to hunt it with the help of a marine biologist (Richard Dreyfuss) and a professional shark hunter (Robert Shaw). Murray Hamilton plays the mayor, and Lorraine Gary portrays Brody’s wife. The screenplay is credited to Benchley, who wrote the first drafts, and actor-writer Carl Gottlieb, who rewrote the script during principal photography.

During a beach party at dusk on Amity Island, a young woman, Chrissie Watkins, goes skinny dipping in the ocean. While treading water, she is violently pulled under. The next day, her partial remains are found on shore. The medical examiner’s ruling that the death was due to a shark attack leads police chief Martin Brody to close the beaches. Mayor Larry Vaughn overrules him, fearing that the town’s summer economy will be ruined and points out that the town has never had trouble with sharks. The coroner now concurs with the mayor’s theory that Chrissie was killed in a boating accident. Brody reluctantly accepts their conclusion until the shark kills a young boy, Alex Kitner, in full daylight on a crowded beach. A bounty is placed on the shark, prompting an amateur shark-hunting frenzy. Local professional shark hunter Quint offers his services for $10,000. Meanwhile, consulting oceanographer Matt Hooper examines Chrissie’s remains, and confirms her death was caused by a shark—an unusually large one.

When local fishermen catch a tiger shark, the mayor proclaims the beaches safe. Mrs. Kitner, Alex’s mother, openly blames Brody for her son’s death, leaving him guilt-ridden. Hooper disputes that it is the same predator, confirming this after no human remains are found inside it. Hooper and Brody find a half-sunken vessel while searching the night waters in Hooper’s boat. Underwater, Hooper retrieves a sizable great white shark’s tooth embedded in the submerged hull. He drops it in fright after encountering the partial corpse of local fisherman Ben Gardner. Vaughn discounts Brody and Hooper’s statements that a huge great white shark is responsible for the deaths, and refuses to close the beaches, allowing only added safety precautions. On the Fourth of July weekend, tourists pack the beaches. Following a juvenile prank in which the presence of a shark is simulated, the real shark enters a nearby estuary, killing a boater and causing Brody’s oldest son, Michael, to go into shock. Brody then convinces Vaughn to hire Quint.

Quint, Brody, and Hooper set out on Quint’s boat, the Orca, to hunt the shark. While Brody lays down a chum line, Quint waits for an opportunity to hook the shark. Without warning, it appears behind the boat. Quint, estimating its length at 25 feet (7.6 m) and weight at 3 tonnes (3.0 long tons; 3.3 short tons), harpoons it with a line attached to a flotation barrel, but the shark pulls the barrel underwater and disappears. At nightfall, Quint and Hooper drunkenly exchange stories about their assorted scars, and Quint reveals that he survived the USS Indianapolis. The shark returns unexpectedly, ramming the boat’s hull, and disabling the power. The men work through the night, repairing the engine. In the morning, Brody attempts to call the Coast Guard, but Quint, who has become obsessed with killing the shark without outside assistance, smashes the radio. After a long chase, Quint harpoons another barrel into the shark. The line is tied to the stern cleats, but the shark drags the boat backward, swamping the deck and flooding the engine compartment.

Quint prepares to sever the line to prevent the transom from being pulled out but the cleats break off, keeping the barrels attached to the shark. Quint heads toward shore to draw the shark into shallower waters, but he pushes the damaged engine past the safety limits and the overtaxed engine fails. With the Orca slowly sinking, the trio attempt a riskier approach. purchase cialis Hooper puts on scuba gear and enters the water in a shark-proof cage, intending to lethally inject the shark with strychnine, using a hypodermic spear. The shark attacks the cage, causing Hooper to drop the spear, which sinks and is lost. While the shark thrashes in the tangled remains of the cage, Hooper manages to escape to the seabed. The shark escapes and leaps onto the sinking deck of the boat, dragging Quint down and devouring him. Trapped on the sinking vessel, Brody jams a pressurized scuba tank into the shark’s mouth, and, climbing the crow’s nest, shoots the tank with Quint’s rifle. The resulting explosion obliterates the shark. Hooper surfaces, and he and Brody paddle back to Amity Island clinging to the remaining barrels.

To be honest, watching it from beginning to end for the first time in 2020 the movie didn’t really stand iron bridge lending out for me. I even found some of the acting in the beginning to be off and parts of the film boring. Still I do acknowledge it’s iconic standing among fans of movies and for animal attacks in particular. I give it a 7.5 outta 10!
