utism is a poorly-understood neurological disorder that can impair an individual’s ability to engage in various social interactions. But little 5-year-old Iris Grace in the UK is an excellent example of the unexpected gifts that autism can also grant – her exceptional focus and attention to detail have helped her create incredibly beautiful paintings that many of her fans (and buyers) have likened to Monet’s works.
Little Iris is slowly learning to speak, whereas most children have already begun to speak at least a few words by age 2. Along with speech therapy, her parents gradually introduced her to painting, which is when they discovered her amazing talent.
“We have been encouraging Iris to paint to help with speech therapy, joint attention and turn taking,” her mother, Arabella Carter-Johnson, explains on her website. “Then we realised that she is actually really talented and has an incredible concentration span of around 2 hours each time she paints. Her autism has created a style of painting which I have never seen in a child of her age, she has an understanding of colours and how they interact with each other.”
Incredible! <3 <3 <3
Harrison discovered he had an extremely rare antibody in his blood, a makeup of plasma so unique that it holds the cure to rhesus disease, a severe form of anaemia that causes either death or brain damage for newborns.
Researchers were amazed by his blood and its ability to save lives, so they insured his life for a million dollars. His blood has been used to create life-saving injections to combat rhesus. It was even used to help save his own daughter’s child. He’s now 77 and he’s been donating blood every couple weeks for the past 59 years totaling over 1000 blood donations. All of his donations have saved an estimated 2.4 MILLION babies that would’ve suffered from the rhesus condition.
Name one thing that has always fascinated you.
People. It always amazes me why people did what they did, or why they did it. Or sometimes, how on earth they managed to do it. Sometimes the things they did were just outrageous, or ridiculous that I wonder how did the thoughts can occurred in their brain. But other times, the things they did were just amazing, wonderful, and simply brilliant that I wonder why the thoughts never occur to me (okay, that sounds envy).
People. Nowadays I ponder about their relationships more. Like what happened to a friend of mine, A. A have several best friends, oh sorry, had. Was once the literal description of BFF, they went anywhere together, even sardined themselves in a compact car just to go have lunch together at a restaurant quite far back from campus (which is why I always had it in my mind that they would never break apart seeing that they would bear sticking with each other all the time).
But now A is no longer in the BFF circle. I don’t know why, and even when I hear the stories from both parties, I still cannot fathom the reasons behind their doings, and I don’t think I will ever stop thinking about this.
Agaknya memang tak ditakdirkan untuk jawatan tersebut.
Ini sudah kali kedua pengakhiran yang serupa untuk jawatan yang sama.
Aku berharap, biarlah yang lebih baik menunggu di hadapanku.
Any experience is good experience, anyway.
emak kata, solatlah istikharah.
kali ini emak tak keras dengan kemahuannya. mungkin kerana aku disokong oleh kakak, dan emak merasa kebenaran hujah sokongannya.
aku berfikir-fikir. aku ada dua pilihan. menerima yang pertama atau menunggu yang kedua.
seketika kemudian, aku tersedar. aku juga boleh memilih bukan keduanya.
Imam al-Shafi’i remarked, “There is a verse in the Quran that every wrongdoer should be terrified of.”
He was asked, “Which verse is that?”
He replied, “‘And your Lord never forgets.’” [Surah Maryam: 64]
One of my fav surahs. Each time I recite this surah I still learn new stuff even though I repeat the same verses. Subhanallah!
THIS IS AMAZING
I’m about five of these listed above. I’m not sure if that makes me extra weird.
