You can’t keep a good character down in Hollywood — even when that character has spent most of its existence as one of Marvel Comics’ most notorious villains. The Venom movie based on the popular Spider-Man spinoff character has an action-packed new trailer showcasing the film’s wild alien effects, and now a rumor suggests that the character’s comic book roots might not be the movie’s only connection to the famous web-slinger.
Set to be directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) and hit theaters October 5, Venom will feature Mad Max: Fury Road and The Dark Knight Rises star Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock, a journalist who becomes the host of a powerful, symbiotic alien that gives him superhuman abilities. The movie’s supporting cast members include Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Jenny Slate, and Woody Harrelson.
The rumor machine shifted into high gear in January when a Collider host reported that Tom Holland’s Spider-Man — the star of Spider-Man: Homecoming and the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s youngest star — might show up in Venom.
Let’s pretend you’re a medical student learning how to perform a certain operation. It’s late one night and you’re in the classroom all alone, trying to perfect a particularly challenging procedure on a mannequin of a young kid. You move your scalpel-wielding hand into place and … wait, that mannequin’s eyes didn’t move, did they? Of course not, you reassure yourself. Suddenly, the mannequin lurches to life, thrashing around on the gurney, its breathing rapid and scared, its eyes wide and darting.
Is this the start of some new horror movie franchise set in a haunted hospital? Nope. It’s Pediatric Hal, a creepily lifelike new robot created by the folks at medical training company Gaumard Scientific. Made to look like a 5-year-old male patient, Hal is able to answer questions, track fingers with his eyes, cry for his robot parents, urinate when scared, say “Ow!” when pricked with a needle, and mimic the symptoms of assorted medical ailments — including arrhythmia and cardiac arrest. No wonder its creators refer to it as “The World’s Most Advanced Pediatric Patient Simulator.”
The idea of the robot is to allow medical students to come to grips with everything from inserting tracheal tubes into a patient’s throat to using a defibrillator by giving them a mannequin to learn on before they move on to the real thing. However, while practicing operations is one thing, being able to perform them under pressure is quite another. That’s where the idea of Hal comes into its own, since it exhibits the behavior that surgeons may have to face when dealing with real patients later in their careers.
You just can’t keep a good trophy-hunting alien down, and now The Predator is scheduled to stalk the big screen again beginning September 14. Just a few days before the film’s premiere, a clip from the film was released that offered the best look so far at the movie’s supersized new alien.
Directed by Iron Man 3 and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang filmmaker Shane Black — who also played a supporting role in the original 1987 film — The Predator
010’s Predators. Narcos and Logan actor Boyd Holbrook stars in the film, while Olivia Munn, Keegan-Michael Key, Jacob Tremblay, and Thomas Jane have supporting roles.
Here’s everything we know about The Predator so far.
HELLO, BIG GUY
Humans won’t be the only prey for the aliens in The Predator. A clip released by the studio in September (just a few days before the film’s premiere) offered the best look so far at the genetically modified, supersized hunter that will debut in the film — and will apparently hunt other Predators.
THE FINAL, BLOODY LOOK
20th Century Fox released the final, full-length trailer for The Predator in late August, and the studio went all-in on its last look at the film with the most intense, footage-filled preview so far. Along with offering an introduction to the movie’s colorful cast of human characters, the trailer also showcases the bloody beatdown the alien predators will dish out in the film — and not just to humans.
Clearly, the studio was saving the best for last when it comes to The Predator.

It’s one of those days. You are on yourperiod – and it is painful. You don’t feel like going to work, but have an important meeting you cannot miss. With a help of a few pain killers, you drag yourself out of bed and head to work. Minutes before the meeting you find out you have stained your dress. The day couldn’t get worse!Why do women have period?
Imagine a life without period - no bleeding, no pain, no sanitary napkins/tampons. Hold that thought before you get too carried away. Every month, the womb prepares for a possible pregnancy when it sheds the lining of the womb, resulting in period or menses. This usually happens once a month and a woman bleeds on an average for five days. The normal cycle varies from 21 to 35 days and the bleeding can last from two to seven days. Having an regular period indicates that a woman is ovulating every month. It is like a monthly reminder that women are capable of having a baby.
Menstruation through the ages
Menarche and menopause mark the start and the end of period in a woman’s lifetime. Through the ages, menstruation has never been discussed openly. It has been associated with witches, magic, shame and taboo. It is not surprising that even today most women in our country do not talk freely about it. In some communities in India, women are not allowed to enter religious places, cook food or participate in socio-cultural activities during period. This revolves around the myth that menstruation is impure and the body is cursed during this time. However, this is rather contradictory because a girl is
considered cursed and infertile if she does not have period. In many cultures, the onset of the first period is announced and celebrated.
Before sanitary pads/tampons were invented, it is believed (although this has not been proven) that the Egyptians and Greeks used papyrus and lint wrapped around a stick to use as a tampon. Over a period of time, women were known to use “rags”. The sanitary napkins were not invented until the late 19 th century and the tampon came into being only in the early 20 th century. However, many women in the developing world continue to use cloth or rags as they cannot afford menstrual hygiene products.during their period. In recent times, several NGOs have been working to spread awareness among women in rural areas.
Even in the cities and metros, access to clean toilets is a luxury. Most workplaces are not ‘period friendly’ and women find it challenging to step out of the comfort zone during this time.
have problems with your period, go visit your gynaecologist.
Some women may experience variations in their cycles. Bleeding may be heavy (changing 5-6 or more fully soaked pads every day), painful or irregular. These variations may be a result of a hormone imbalance, growths (non-cancerous) in the uterus called fibroids or polyps or occasionally a sign of cancer in older women. Most commonly, heavy and prolonged period can cause a low blood count otherwise known as anaemia. This can cause tiredness, weakness and an inability to perform day to day activities optimally.
