The Rubik’s Cube and its inventor

Sok felfedező születtett már, és igen sok hasznos és leleményes ötletet valósítottak meg. Hogy melyik találmány hozza meg a tervezőjének az ismertséget és a világsikert? Azt sohasem lehet előre tudni, nincs biztos recept. A Rubik-kocka olyan logikai találmány, amely sokunkat rabul ejtett gyerekként. Sőt vannak, akik felnőttkorukra sem nőtték ki a kockához fűződő ragaszkodásukat.

Why to choose Hungarian wines?

Hungarian wines are not classified as the best wines in the world, but it is well known that the science of viticulture and wine making has been perfected by Hungarian winemakers for hundreds of years. The Hungarian wines are getting greater and they are achieving better and better places in several competitions, thus bringing a bigger reputation to the Hungarian wineries as well.

Even athletes die once … we are mourning two great water polo players at once

It is always a huge loss when we lose one of our loved ones, but when we have to say goodbye to a man, who was loved by a whole country and whose life was accompanied to the very end - it is an even sadder goodbye. Never in the history of Hungarian water polo had it ever occurred that the country lost two of its successful and efficient players with only one day between. We hereby commemorate György Kárpáti and Tibor Benedek, three-time Olympic champions.

A political scientist, I care about human relations and who makes what decisions and why. I like to see the depths of things and write about them.

The Kardashians seem to be the Royal Family of Hollywood. As “Kim Mania” takes over, people cry out that she’s their role model for her grace and beauty. The perfect lives of these people become what many living a normal life strive for. Why do we celebrate celebrities? The obsession by many to live another life seems normal in today’s world.

Celebrate celebrities: The Screen Life

The media doesn’t usually portray the tough areas of a celebrity’s life. Unless they really screw up, it seems on the screen that a celebrity has it made. Who wouldn’t want to live just like them? They drive fancy cars, live in mansions, look amazing at all times, and make millions of dollars.

The everyday person is working hard trying to juggle their kids and family and work and life at the same time. They yearn for this “simple” life. The media isn’t going to show a celebrity’s struggles. It isn’t good for their brand to show them in sweatpants and covered in food from their baby. We might see the assistants of the celebrity doing all of their dirty work.

Kardashians: Part Of Their Culture

The world loves celebrities because we feel like we are part of their life. Why we celebrate celebrities? If we “worship” them, we are participating in their world. It might be fake, but we want to live in it. We don’t want to see behind the scenes of Brad Pitt or Madonna’s world.

We like the perfection of this life. We think our life really matters if we’re a tiny part of their world. These effects are seen when a big celebrity passes away. When Kobe Bryant was tragically killed in a helicopter crash, many people felt they lost a family member. They realize in a sense that these people are mortal, but they also feel like part of their own world is gone when they pass away.

The Halo Effect

We often give celebrities the “halo effect.” Michael Jordan is a great basketball player. Mariah Carey is a great singer. Jojo Siwa is a great dancer. Because of their talents in one area, many believe they’re perfect in all areas of life. It sounds silly to some, but we make them into martyrs. We want to believe they are perfect. We think if only we could sing or dance, we would be just like them. It’s trying to live another life dreaming of these things.

In all reality, Mariah Carey might only be good at singing. She might be a horrible person. This is probably not true, but it’s important to realize no one lives the life we imagine for them. Everyone has flaws. Everyone has problems. Everyone puts their pants on one leg at a time.

Escaping Reality

When we have issues in our own life, we often try to escape our own reality. It’s normal to watch movies and television shows dreaming of their life. We don’t want to think about their real problems. We want to believe that celebrity goes home from their movie, is greeted by their perfect family members and goes to sleep in their golden bed.

Dolly Parton admits she is a character. We only see her all dolled up. She keeps her personal life private. The character of Dolly Parton is “normal” when she goes home to her husband. We just don’t see that part of her, so we live in her reality world.

We don’t see the Kardashians when the film stops rolling. We only see them in this fake reality world of perfection. They may fight, but they do so in their diamonds and glamorous clothing. We escape into this fake world because it just seems easier than our own world.

The Kardashians: Just People

Though we glamorize their lives, the reality is that a celebrity is just a person. We can dream of their life, but if you really got to know them, you’d realize they aren’t so different than you. They have fights with their family. They get sick. They lay in bed all day when they’re sad. We want them to live the life they do in photos, but in reality, they live just like you sometimes.

The Kardashians may always seem like the perfect family onscreen with their beautiful looks and huge homes. We may always celebrate families like these that portray perfection. We must remember they’re real people with real problems. It’s important we live our own lives and see the beauty and glamour in the little pieces of everyday life.

Why do we want to live another life: to celebrate celebrities like Kardashians?
