Food, Instagram, and Memes: INSTAGRAM | @IFACTS.DAILY It's illegal for supermarkets in France to waste food. Supermarkets must either compost it or donate unsold or nearly expired goods to charity. France has become the world's first country to ban supermarket waste and compel large retailers to donate unsold food. While many charities hail the legislation, some worry about their capacity to handle the extra food. In a refrigerated room of the massive Carrefour supermarket in western Paris, director Soed Toumi points to carts piled high with food: Packs of yoghurt and pudding, slightly stale pastries, and baguettes. In a matter of hours, the food will be carted away for distribution to the needy. Legislation passed in February makes France the world's first country to ban supermarket waste and compel large retailers like Carrefour to donate unsold food – or face a fine of 3,750 euros ($ 4,230). The law is a first stab at rethinking consumption practices in a country where an estimated 7 million tons of food is thrown away each year. While consumers are the biggest culprits, restaurants and stores account for about a quarter of food waste. But when it comes to her store, Toumi says the law doesn't change much. The supermarket donates the equivalent of 320,000 meals each year to four local charities. "We've already been fighting against waste," she says. "But if the law allows others to follow our example, why not?" Not all French supermarkets boast similar practices. The average store is believed to throw away roughly 20 kilos of unsold food each day. Some have reportedly poured bleach on products, rendering them inedible – ostensibly to avoid food poisoning and legal problems.

Memes, Pregnant, and Chase: These 11 Signs Say: You Are Probably Expecting a oto Grid Baby! Today’s regular check-ups and tests are 99% right. The technology is so advanced that they will tell you that something is cooking inside your body even before the “thing” happens. My grandmother and mother weren’t lucky enough to be pregnant in this world. They didn’t even know they are pregnant until that belly started to grow. The first sign that a woman is pregnant is waiting for her period to come. However, sometimes this sign could come knocking on the door and still you could be pregnant. I wanted to get deeper with this post. I wanted to escape from the usual signs like vomiting, period, and often urination. Let’s cut to the chase and take a look at these “you are probably pregnant” signs. 1.Increased Estrogen and Progesterone Levels These two hormones will decrease or stop the menstrual bleedings. 2. Vomiting Does Not Only Happen in the Mornings Oh yeah. This is probably the main reason why people confuse morning sickness with a stomach bug or food poisoning. Being pregnant means slower digestion. 3. Swollen and Sensitive Vagina The levels of cervical mucus you produce are thicker, and the result is a very sensitive vagina. All of this comes as a result of increased progesterone levels. 4. Increased Breast Size You thought your breasts get swollen when you are in your period? – Wait until you see what happens when you are expecting. The nipples get darker as they prepare for nursing your baby. The hormones inside of you make your breasts sensitive and bigger. If you were dreaming for larger breasts, they would continue growing through the pregnancy. 5. Menstrual Cramps Outside your Period Dates It lasts a couple of days as the process of implementation occurs. It’s the time when the fertilized egg attaches to the uterus lining. 6. Going to the Bathroom. A Lot. As the body produces more blood to support you and your baby growing inside of you, it will force the kidneys to filter more. 7. You Won’t Have a Problem Falling Asleep Anywhere and Anytime Your body spends energy working all day all night to make your womb a special place for your baby. It’s normal for the body to rest more
