The picture represents different stages in the process of avocado oil extraction.
The fruit undergoes four separate phases: selection, mixing, separation and, filtering; to transform from a solid fruit to a viscous liquid.
The first stage involves picking up good-quality fruit and dumping the spoilt ones. The required avocados are then washed before they are crushed and blended.
Here, the fruit skin and its seeds are separated. The other remains are then mixed and sent to the centrifuge.
The third stage involves vigorous spinning of the blended mixture at optimum temperature levels. Solids and fluids are abstracted separately. While the liquid is sent to the next phase for further conversion; the solid waste, along with the by-products of the first two phases, is sent back to the orchid for it to be re-used for plantation.
The final product coming out of the centrifuge, which is passed on to the next phase, is the required oil, while water is abstracted out as waste. This oil further undergoes filtration, which is then put in bottles through the dispenser.

Marriage is an event that binds two individuals together for the rest of their lives. This makes it a very special event that is celebrated with the respective partners forever; thus, it is essential that one chooses a partner whom they love, care for, and, with whom they have common interests and goals.
Traditionally, a man would always be coupled with a woman; but, things have started to change now and people are starting to open up their minds and accept couples of the same gender. It was considered taboo, and so people would not open up about their feelings and chose to suppress their emotions due to the pressure of society. Gays now are bold about their feelings and not shy of publicly expressing themselves.
Though the majority of the society has been supportive of the change, a part of it still believes that this trend could impact society negatively and hence are against legalizing gay marriages. They believe that it is an unnatural process and fail to understand the feelings that these couples go through. Change is difficult and, the acceptance of couples of the same sex is a big change from the conventional couples.
Choosing a partner is one's right as it is he who will be having a future with them.
Therefore, I feel that gay marriages should be made legal because it will allow these couples to express themselves freely. It is not the gender but, the happiness of a person that matters the most at the end of the day.
