Ant-Man and the Wasp - Smaller and Bigger at the Same Time!

We may still be recovering from Infinity War, but to fill that void is the last MCU movie of 2018, Ant-Man and the Wasp. Bringing the team up of Ant-Man Scott Lang and now Hope Van Dyne now suited up as the Wasp are together for a new mission and disovery.

The timeline close and within the infinity war corridor it will provide answers to their connection to the "Snapocalyse". But before that they have to battle a new foe, and discover the secrets and power of the quantum realm which Scott has been to in the first movie. This calls for the throwback team up of the original Ant-Man and the Wasp which is Hank and Janet.

One of the villain they have to face is Ghost who can phase through almost everything, something they were not prepared for. There is also the appearance of Bill Foster also known as Goliath who also used a super suit to become "Giant Man". And there will be a lot of shrinking and expanding in this  movie which was also a hit with the first one. Based on the trailer, there is huge salt shaker and Hello Kitty Pez which was hilariously amazing.

Clean Your Colon Better With Fiber Health

Victor Lim, CEO of Spectrum Naturale advocates internal
healthwith Fiber Naturale.
We have to keep in mind that body cleanliness is not only external but also important to look within. It would be easy to correct things we see on the outside rather than the inside. That is why we have to take good care of our internal organs.

The best way to cleam our insides is through the organs which absorbs nutrients and also excretes wastes out of our body, The colon. As food and drinks are processed in our digestive system, the colon is one of the most important organs which makes the final phase and takes in the broken down food and leave out indigestible materials which comes out as waste. 

Fiber is one of them as it sweeps the inside of the colon and pulls in the wastes to be excreted. Thus it has been recommended by many doctors to have a high fiber diet  that has multiple benefits internally. One of the recommended products that has a high fiber composition is Fiber Health.

Have you ever thought how Justin Bieber’s “Sorry” would have sounded if it came out in the 60’s or if Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect” could make a 1950’s prom even more romantic?

The once-popular phrase may be “everything old is new again,” but for Scott Bradlee, it might read everything new is old again.

Instead of just doing covers, music arranger and pianist Scott Bradlee formed an ensemble band of throwbox minstrels called Post Modern Jukebox (PMJ) that takes modern pop hits and plays them in ragtime, vintage jazz and other retro musical styles.

 “Today's hits, yesterday” was the inspiration behind Post Modern Jukebox’s unique retro-reworkings of modern pop and rock hits. The multi-talented collective reimagines contemporary pop, rock and R&B hits in the style of various yesteryears, from swing to doo-wop, ragtime to Motown – or, as Bradlee himself puts it, “pop music in a time machine.”
