The Mirror Between Us (2012) - IMDb

there is a picture of a man and boy and a boat
a happy memory that speaks of the best of times within a family
this good father had built the boat that sailed so well
and his happy son was discovering his joy for sailing
good memories indeed

as time had turned to the present
much time had gone by
the old man's beloved dinghy had come into disrepair
our little boat needed a new home
there is a mirror between us, for .....

there are pictures of a man, his father and a boy
and a boat, the same boat as before
these happy pictures are in the now
of a boat that sailed so well
magnificently restored
with such care and skill
by a man and his family
good memories indeed

this little boat had a wonderful past
and now has a wonderful future
and these are reflections between two families
in a mirror
a Mirror dinghy

The Tomato in the Mirror trope as used in popular culture

In experiments, women with eating disorders judged their actual body size to have increased after consuming a bar of chocolate and a soft-drink. Eating-disordered women may see an even larger person in the mirror if they have just had a high-calorie lunch or snack.

There is a striking contrast between the U.S’s poor performance on infant mortality, life expectancy, and amenable mortality and its relatively better performance on in-hospital mortality after heart attack or stroke. Researchers have noted that the only modest decline in the rate of amenable mortality in the U.S. may be attributable to better management, once diagnosed, of hypertension and cerebrovascular disease that lead to cardiovascular mortality. These findings highlight the combined impact of a lack of universal insurance coverage and barriers to accessing primary care, and suggest that the U.S. could make gains by investing more in preventing chronic disease. The high level of inequity in the U.S. health care system intensifies the problem. For the first time in decades, midlife mortality for less-educated Americans is rapidly increasing.

In the most recent research, there is some evidence of an increase in body-dissatisfaction among males.

Mirror, mirror - A summary of research findings on …

The United States health care system is the most expensive in the world, but this report and prior editions consistently show the U.S. underperforms relative to other countries on most dimensions of performance. Among the 11 nations studied in this report—Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States—the U.S. ranks last, as it did in the 2010, 2007, 2006, and 2004 editions of Mirror, Mirror. Most troubling, the U.S. fails to achieve better health outcomes than the other countries, and as shown in the earlier editions, the U.S. is last or near last on dimensions of access, efficiency, and equity. In this edition of Mirror, Mirror, the United Kingdom ranks first, followed closely by Switzerland (Exhibit ES-1).
