A Champion Gymnast With Down Syndrome Becomes A Model And Breaks Stereotypes

In spite of being raised in the spirit of “everybody is beautiful in their own way”, in reality, we became victims of the modern model of “perfect beauty”.

We are bombarded by the photos of ideally-looking models on a daily basis, and it seems that there is no room for any different-looking person.

Yet, Chelsea Werner, a gymnast from Danville, California, showed the world that one can be perfect in his own way. She has a Down Syndrome, a common chromosomal defect that leads to the delay of the intellectual and physiological development of a person.

She has earned her name as a gymnast, and gymnastics came to her life when she was four, as a way of strengthening her muscles.

Chelsea was unable to walk until she was almost two years old and always had low muscle tone, yet persevered to perform at a physical peak beyond many experts’ wildest expectations.

Soon, she became a champion gymnast, and gymnastics taught her new skills and infused her with confidence. Werner had participated in…

Choose an Eye and Learn Hidden Secrets About Your Personality

Our subconscious is a very dark place that takes years and years of psychoanalysis to understand. It can reveal our deepest fears, secret desires, and suppressed emotions. However, some of us don’t even know the basic traits of our personalities, let alone the deep workings of them.

Here at Bright Side, we created a fun personality test to help you understand what kind of person you are and to determine what your psychological and emotional state is.
1. You’re an open soul.
You’re a very gentle and empathetic person who would welcome anyone into your heart. You believe in gaining experiences rather than shutting yourself off to the world. You’d rather get hurt or upset than having no emotions at all.

Which animal did you see first?
1. The zebra If the first animal you saw is the zebra, the words funny, influential and charismatic are all about you. You are very active and spontaneous, you have the most contagious personality, and people always follow you. You are wonderful company for a good time.

Female Dragonflies Will Literally Fake Their Own Deaths To Avoid Males

We can think of various funny ways and go to extreme lengths to avoid someone, but female dragonflies have got it down to a fine art- rather than being intimate with their male counterparts, they opt to play dead!

This is specific to one dragonfly type, the moorland hawkers, but other species may partake in the process as well.

While collecting larvae samples in the Swiss Alps, Rassim Khelifa from the University of Zurich, witnessed the behavior for the first time in the moorland hawker dragonfly (Aeshna juncea).

He watched a female crash-dive to the ground while being pursued by a male. She lay motionless on her back, and as soon as her suitor flew away and the coast was clear, she took off.

Khelifa has been studying dragonflies for over a decade and said he was surprised to see this phenomenon.

At the University of Zurich, Khelifa conducted a study of the females’ death feigning and discovered that this strategy is usually successful.

He observed 27 out of 31 female dragonflies fal…
