Yanet Garcia- Heating up the Mexican weather forecast


Yanet Garcia is a weather presenter who over recent weeks has been gaining a few fans who are keen to watch her forecasts

Model and weather presenter Yanet Garcia has sent Mexico – and now the rest of the internet – into a frenzy.

It could be that she is just a fantastic meteorologist, but there’s a slim possibility it could be something else she has to offer.

Her good looks and figure-hugging dresses, always teemed with a pair of killer heels, are a hit with viewers.

Before she appears on Mexico’s Televisa Monterrey she often tweets a picture of her outfit to her 43,000 followers.

Contemporary House Maza In Mexico


Contemporary-House-Maza-in-Mexico-1

The contemporary dwelling was completed back in 2012, and features 5,263 square feet of living space. The home is situated in a natural setting surrounding the Lake of Valle de Bravo, and blends nicely thanks to the lush vegetation running all throughout the home’s facade. In fact it’s almost difficult to tell where the outside ends, and the inside begins due largely in part to the massive floor to ceiling windows and doors that open the interior up completely to the outside elements. The residence has been equipped with a multi-car garage in the basement, and a tour through the house reveals individual spaces designed as scenes – providing a unique experience for visitors and residents alike.

Surprising Facts About Booze

Diet mixers get you more drunk.

According to study conducted in early 2013, spirits mixed with diet pop get you 18% drunker than spirits mixed with the ‘full fat’ varieties. The theory is that your body recognises full-sugar drinks as food, which slows down alcohol absorption, where as diet drinks don’t.

Wanting to get drunk is natural. Possibly.

The ‘drunken monkey hypothesis’ put forward by Dr. Robert Dudley of the University of California suggests that human attraction to ethanol (pure alcohol) may have a genetic basis. He argued that the primate ancestor of homo sapiens had a high dependence on fruit as a food source, and consequently developed a genetic attraction to ripe and overripe fruit, which contains ethanol.

 Big lads aren’t necessarily the biggest drinkers.

A beer belly might mean you’ve consumed a lot in the past, but it doesn’t mean you can automatically handle more alcohol in one go than someone slimmer. In fact, a lean person will be less affected by booze because water-rich muscle tissues absorb alcohol effectively, preventing it from reaching the brain.

 Tequila has a lot in common with champagne.

Both drinks have ‘Denomination of Origin’, meaning they can only be produced in one place (a certain region of Mexico and France, respectively). Also, like champagne, tequila is one of the most closely regulated drinks in the world, watched by the Mexican government, the Tequila Regulatory Council, and the National Chamber of Tequila Producers.

Booziest place in the world.

Is not Ireland, Russia, or any other country typically associated with a love for the sauce. Instead, that dubious honor goes to South Korea, who, according to a World Health Organization study, drinks more hard spirits than anywhere else — and is where Jinro soju comes from, the best-selling spirit on the planet.

Champagne is dangerous.

And not just because it makes you attempt the worm at wedding discos, either. Thanks to the approximately 49 million bubbles in each one, the pressure in a bottle of champagne is 90 pounds per square inch — three times the pressure in car tires — meaning a popped cork really could take your eye out.
