Iran’s history of brutality



As protests engulf Iran, the issues of brutality and human rights violations are being broadcast for the world to see

Protests are erupting across Iran, bringing into focus issues of brutality used against the Iranian people. In particular, the treatment of women in Iran and the inhumane methods that are implemented to ensure they obey strict conservative Islamic rules.

So what human rights violations are the people of Iran facing, and what drives change?

Legal Discrimination

Iranian women face legal discrimination in a number of areas. They are not allowed to hold certain jobs, they have restricted access to education, and they are not allowed to travel freely. Additionally, women in Iran are not allowed to marry or divorce without the permission of a male guardian.

Violence Against Women

Violence against women is also a serious problem in Iran. According to a report by the United Nations, nearly 60% of Iranian women have experienced physical or sexual violence at the hands of their husbands. Additionally, many women are forced into arranged marriages and are unable to leave abusive relationships due to financial dependence on their husbands.

Lack of Access to Healthcare

Iranian women also face significant barriers when it comes to accessing healthcare. Many rural women do not have access to basic health services, and women in urban areas often face discrimination from healthcare providers. Additionally, abortion is illegal in Iran except in cases where the life of the mother is at risk, which can lead to dangerous and often deadly situations for women who seek illegal abortions.

Forced Hijab

The hijab is compulsory for all women in Iran, and those who do not comply with the law can be fined or imprisoned. The forced wearing of the hijab has led to a number of protests by Iranian women, who argue that it violates their right to freedom of expression.

Acid Attacks

Acid attacks are another serious problem facing Iranian women. These attacks, which usually involve men throwing acid at women’s faces, are often motivated by revenge or jealousy. In many cases, the victims are left permanently disfigured and require extensive medical treatment

Lack of due process

One of the primary issues with Iran’s brutality is the lack of due process that is afforded to detainees and prisoners. In many cases, detainees are held for months or even years without being charged with a crime. They are often denied access to lawyers and are not allowed to see their families. This can lead to detainees being tortured or otherwise mistreated in an effort to extract confessions.

Use of torture

Another issue with Iran’s brutality is the widespread use of torture. Torture is often used to extract confessions from detainees, but it can also be used as a way to punish prisoners. Common methods of torture include electric shock, beatings, and waterboarding. Torture is often used in conjunction with other forms of mistreatment, such as solitary confinement and sensory deprivation.

Inhumane conditions

Inhumane conditions are another problem with Iran’s brutality. Prisoners are often held in cramped, unsanitary cells where they are denied access to basic necessities such as food, water, and medical care. This can lead to prisoners developing health problems, such as malnutrition, dehydration, and infectious diseases. Additionally, prisoners are often subjected to extreme temperatures, both hot and cold, which can further exacerbate these health problems.

Death in custody

Finally, one of the most serious issues with Iran’s brutality is the number of deaths that occur in custody each year. In many cases, these deaths occur as a result of the mistreatment that detainees and prisoners endure while in custody. However, there have also been cases where detainees and prisoners have been killed outright by their captors.

Boston Dynamics’ electric marvel or robot contortionist?



Boston Dynamics has recently unveiled its latest creation, the electric Atlas robot, boasting enhanced agility and strength.

However, with its uncanny ability to contort and rise from the ground with an almost eerie grace, one might wonder if we’re witnessing the birth of the world’s first robot contortionist.

As this technological marvel flaunts its capabilities, one can’t help but ponder if we’re on the brink of a future where household chores will be effortlessly handled by robots moving like a fusion of ballet dancers and horror movie monsters.

With its cadaver-like movements and illuminated head, it’s hard not to speculate whether Atlas is destined to revolutionise robotics or simply rehearsing for a techno-horror rendition of The Nutcracker. As Boston Dynamics continues to push the boundaries of robotics, the line between science fiction and reality becomes increasingly blurred.

The Coffee confusion causing health concerns



As the morning sun peeks through the curtains, many reach for that familiar brew, kickstarting their day with a comforting cup of coffee.

It’s a ritual ingrained in cultures worldwide, offering a jolt of energy to combat the grogginess of dawn.

But when is the optimal time for that caffeine fix? According to registered dietitian Anthony DiMarino, RD, LD, the answer isn’t crystal clear.

Some experts suggest delaying that first sip until mid-morning or later. However, DiMarino reassures coffee lovers that there’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this dilemma.

Meanwhile, the science behind coffee production unveils fascinating insights into its instant variant. Whether produced through freeze-drying or spray-drying methods, instant coffee offers convenience without sacrificing flavor.

Yet, beyond convenience, recent studies delve deeper into coffee’s impact on our bodies. Research exploring the acute effects of decaffeinated versus caffeinated coffee reveals intriguing findings on reaction time, mood, and skeletal muscle strength.

Moreover, investigations into the gut microbiome shed light on coffee’s influence on liver cirrhosis patients. A study analyzing the duodenal microbiome in this population found correlations between coffee consumption and microbial richness and evenness.

So, as you sip your coffee and ponder the day ahead, consider not just the flavour in your cup but also the subtle impacts it may have on your body and mind.
