Two Muslim gay couple have married each other in an elaborate wedding held in the United Kingdom.

The first ever gay Muslim wedding has taken place in the UK, Metro has reported. The obviously happy grooms Jahed Choudhury, 24, and Sean Rogan, 19, tied the knot in Walsall registry office in traditional Muslim attire.

Before their wedding, the two have been together for two years, first met when Choudhury was crying on a bench in Darlaston. Speaking about their relationship, Choudhury told the Express and Star: ‘I’d not long overdosed and I was crying on a bench and Sean came over and asked if I was okay.’
Adding that Sean gave him hope at his lowest point and has stood by him ever since.

Choudhury said that being an openly-gay Muslim made him feel like something of a ‘black sheep’ and that he ‘stood out like a sore thumb’ and often felt trapped between his se*uality and faith.
He tried to deny his orientation and even tried taking medication and a pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia and Bangladesh.

Corals Found Deep in The Ocean Produce Their Own Sunlight to Survive

A light in the dark places.

When you're a coral hanging out in the shallows, too much sunlight is a bad thing. Ultraviolet radiation can mess up the algae that live within coral bodies and provide them with much of their sustenance.

That's why many corals fluoresce in sunlight, producing proteins as a kind of sunblock for their little algae buddies. But this made biologists wonder - why do coral species that live deep in the dark sea also fluoresce if they don't have to protect themselves?


Now researchers from the University of Southampton have figured out that deep-sea corals fluoresce for the exact opposite reason to their counterparts from the shallows - but it's still all for the benefit of the algae.

Most corals are symbiotic organisms - these marine invertebrates host microscopic algae of the genus Symbiodinium, commonly known as zooxanthellae. The algae have a safe haven to hang out and eat the coral's waste in the form of carbon dioxide and nitrogen. In return,…

Image
Having a competitive friend can be a difficult experience, everything they do is to prove in one way or another that they are better than you or more better off than you are, rather than enjoying your successes and celebrating your accomplishments.

Jumia Trave shares 7 ways to deal with a competitive friend.

Try to Be Understanding
It goes without saying that it’s not right to judge a person till you have been or at least tried to be in their shoes. Your overly competitive friend probably has self-esteem issues that’s stirring up this jealousy and competitiveness in them. This doesn’t excuse their behavior but it does help you see where they are coming from and potentially help them.

Talk To Them
Sometimes your friends might not even know that they are being competitive. Try talking to them and let them know your feelings about the situation. Stage a kind of intervention where you calmly relate with them and give instances of their competitiveness (preferably with evidence or with a wi…
