Everyone is curious to know about the elements of a good interview performance. People told me about the importance of body language and the way we present ourselves before the interviewer. So I studied in books about the different types of gestures and their significance. The collar pull gesture grabbed my attention. Research has proved that telling a lie induces a tingling sensation in the fragile neck and facial tissues and a rub or scratch was necessary to appease the feeling. This is exactly why some people pull their shirt's collar when they utter a lie and ponder in suspicion that they might be exposed. So whenever you expect a honest reply from a person watch out for his shirt collar. Exceptionally a person tends to pull his collar away from his neck when he gets enveloped by anger or frustration to let some air inside. Normally the interviewee should avoid using this gesture during his/her interview process. From the interviewer's perspective he can nail the culprit by simply asking "Would you repeat that, please?" or "Could you clarify that point, please?". Remember that there might be other genuine reasons for a person's gesture but the statements are based on a maximum likelihood estimation. Please don't lie. All the best!

Estonia is a country which I came to know only from my History textbook when I browsed about the world wars. A look at the world map shows Estonia as an isolated piece of land embraced by the Baltic sea on the west and gripping the vast Russia on the east. Europe is known for its beauty and serenity. Estonia's capital Tallin is a fabulous destination for tourists in search of tranquility. Tallin has the architectural marvel of the past and will preserve its beauty for posterity. Estonia is a country that will offer plenty of joy to your eyes owing to its picturesque countryside and wonderful natural flavors. The food is palatable and sightseeing will be an enthralling experience if it is not winter time. People here are also interested in sports. I'm not so sure about the culture whether it is Russian or Austrian. Tallin is one of those rare places not so popular but still one of the best. If you want to spend some time away from your hectic work schedule then Tallin will be the perfect destination to spend your holiday. This place is worth a visit at least once in your lifetime.

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a disease of adulthood where the macula area of the retina undergoes disintegration. This results in vision degradation and it is one of the leading causes of blindness among the elderly. AMD is of two types namely wet and dry. Wet AMD is mainly responsible for vision loss. A recent study conducted in Europe has confirmed the myths of our ancestors and that is consuming fish prevents wet AMD and therefore vision loss also. The subjects were investigated based on their food habits and the type of fish they eat. The results were tabulated and analyzed in detail. It was revealed that persons who ate oily fish habitually are more likely not to have the wet AMD disease. But consuming non-oily white fishes had no impact on vision and AMD. Oily fish contains the prime Omega-3 fatty acids like EPA and DHA which are good for heart and vision. Studies conducted in America and Australia earlier had also presented similar results. Some of the oily fishes are salmon, tuna and mackerel. So what are you waiting for. Go fishing or shopping and bring home the best Pisces.
