What to get an old school dad on Father's Day. . . DIY!

For the past three years I’ve gone to Walgreen’s grabbed a card and called it a “Father’s Day.”  My gifts could be more thoughtful but I’m an actor and my dad gets it. I’m broke, I’m busy.

This year though, I vowed would be different. I gotta show my dad how much I appreciate all that he’s sacrificed for me.  It’s my new year's resolution, get thoughtful gifts. But now,  it’s the Saturday before Father’s Day and I’ve got no time left and even less money.  

What can I do for my old school dad?  When I say old school, I'm saying, he irons his t-shirts, he pays his bills in the store, he's kept the same Janet Jackson poster up since the 90's, he still listens to cassette and watches VHS. . . Old school like that!  Alright, so the Father's Day gift. I need to come up with something good!

To get ideas, I go where anyone in my position would go . . . Google!  After a few minutes on the web, it hits me.  DIY, yes, and DIY with what I’ve already got.  I don’t have much, but I do have some office stuff in my backpack. Let’s see what I can make with that!

 What I’m working with:

I’ve got some old school stuff here. A copy of a James Baldwin book, some playing cards. He's always playing cards with some folks! I've got blank greeting cards, stickers for my after school program kids and  scissors (YES!) I've got plenty of stuff, I’m going in y’all!!

The final result:

Had to go with a handmade card, but talk about thoughtful! Ace cause, you know my dad is #1!  Some deep quotes from that Baldwin text! The old school boombox and peace sign are the perfect stickers to pull it all together!  Whew! Just when I was about to go to Walgreen’s again!

2013. What to Expect in Technology

Technology is trending fast and advancing beyond what most of us thought ever imaginable. But luckily, there are innovative minds all over the world working to bring the latest technologies to our very own hands. So this year brought the rise of tablet computing and smartphones. What will 2013 have to offer?

Faster Networking

3G networking has only just been implemented mainstream, but this is not fast enough according to consumers. We want faster networks, and 4G speeds are set to go in 2013. We can expect to see improvements not only in speed but also in range, roaming and bandwidth management. What does this mean though? Really, this just improves what we already have. HD streaming will be available with less lag and delay, and loading times will be vastly improved for network content. It seams that streaming media and cloud networking set for the near future, so 4G speeds are a must. The iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy 3 are the two top competing smartphones of 2012, both implementing 4G networking. However, issues have arisen with battery life and connectivity/signal strength. To combat this, updated models are expected to be released, including the iPhone 5S, only months after the release of the original iPhone 5. This new update will hopefully address battery and signal issues.

Tablets Go Mainstream


Windows 8 tablets will see more powerful tablet computers that bring in external keyboards for maximum productivity. Expect bigger, brighter, sharper screens and more memory, as well as Quad core processors and 2GB of ram or more. Tablet computing is becoming mainstream, and now demands more powerful hardware.All the buzz this year has been on smartphones and their friendly counterparts, tablet computers. From the Apple iPad to the Samsung Galaxy Tab, a whole heap of tablets were released this year. But what about 2013? Well, we can expect Apple to roll out some pretty impressive updates. The new iPad already has 4G speeds, so what will apple bring to the table next? The Apple iPad Mini has been released. But Apple isn’t the only one in this market. Microsoft is set to release a whole new range of Windows 8 tablets featuring the amazing Metro Touch interface. And Android tablets are set to boast some great new features with the release of Android 4.1 Jellybean.

Cloud Computing and Gaming

Apple has already released Airplay, which allows you to stream games wirelessly to your HDTV. But manufacturers and programmers are looking to take it one step further and allow you to move away from game consoles and onto cloud computing and gaming. Could we see a new game network in 2013? And what about the PS3 and XBOX. Both are set to be updated, and will feature the same graphics card. This means more streamlined games available on both platforms. Furthermore, Nintendo has released the Wii U, and the Google and Apple application stores are booming with new games including huge releases like Grand Theft Auto Vice City. The full game can now be downloaded on both app stores. Could we expect gaming to move into the tablet market? This might be inevitable with the increasing performance of tablet computers.

Improvements in 3D

With theupcoming new Playstation and Xbox, 3D TV and Gaming is set to get a nice boost with improvements in 3D technology rapidly developing. We can expect more 3D televisions with better quality projections and innovative new designs. Electronics giant Phillis has announced its aim to launch glasses free 3DTVs by 2013. Not to mention, as time goes by, 3D technology will decrease in price so expect to see a drop in the price of 3D HDTVs from this year.

Internet TV

3DTV isn’t the only buzz surrounding television at the moment. A lot of companies are coming out with internet television platforms that allow you to interact with your television by browsing the internet, playing games, through social media and so on. But can they compete with what Apple is bringing to the table with the Apple TV? And what of the Apple TV itself? Apple is expected to roll out more much needed updates to the Apple TV, possibly implementing iOS app compatibility!

How to Make Your Man Want YOU More…

Hello My Beautiful HIS&HERS Readers:


I received this email the other day.  Usually I’ll file unimportant emails and try to look at them another time but for some reason I opened it and began reading.  Thank goodness I did because I definitely NEEDED to see it’s content.  After you read it, you will see my thoughts and reaction.  Enjoy…




Do you ever find yourself worrying about what you wear, how your hair and make-up look for a man? Or worry about being perfectly “put together” and think about acting “sexy,” and just DOING nice things for a man like cook him a fabulous dinner or rub his shoulders after a hard day at work – or whatever it else you try to DO for a man – and all in hopes that he will be happier with you? That he’ll LOVE you more?

So many women – almost ALL women, in fact, do this – and the hoped for result is simply NOT TRUE!

Oh yes, a man will take everything you want to give him – and gladly. Why wouldn’t he? And he’ll CONTINUE to take all this. But none of what you DO will bring him closer to you. None of it will get him to feel more for you. In fact it’s likely to sooner or later push him away – and more likely sooner.

Learning what attracts a man and what pushes him away is crucial to feeling confident and secure in a relationship – because it’s not about games at all. It’s about respecting a man, even if you don’t feel he’s doing his job as a man “right”- and about allowing yourself to be vulnerable so he can CARE about your feelings.

So what do you do to make your man want you more? The simplest, easiest, fastest way to make this happen sounds like common sense – but, actually – it’s the exact OPPOSITE of everything a woman thinks she “should” do!

And that secret is to – take care of YOU.

Yes, this sounds too simple. And “love yourself” is something you’ve probably heard over and over again from “self-help gurus” but it’s true! Loving yourself makes a man respect you, it makes him find you fascinating, it makes him find you desirable – and it fires up his system so he feels like falling in love with you!

The big question has to do with the “how-to” of loving yourself in a way that makes a man love YOU more. Here are some steps to help you:

1. You must FILL your life with all the things that make YOU feel good, such as work you enjoy, activities which fulfill you. Could be dance classes, pottery lessons, reading in the park, writing, reading, anything that turns YOU on – massages, manicures, a decadent piece of the best, most expensive chocolate. Now…

2. Let that full-life feeling and real interest in yourself show on your OUTSIDE! Change your hair color, go curly or straight, change what you’re wearing – clothes, makeup, nailpolish, everything. Wear red on your lips and body – and just shake it all up so that YOU feel different. Fresh. New. This way – when he shows up in a bigger way for you (and he will)- you’ll feel like an “unfamiliar woman” to him. You can literally “start new” with him. Then…

3. As you go about your life being filled up, you must keep your heart open to him so he feels welcome to come to you. (It’s really important to remember – no matter how hard it is – that HE must come to YOU, not the other way around (and he will). When he sees you having a wonderful, full life without him, he will become curious. When your energy is no longer chasing him and pressuring him, he will finally be able to breathe. He will no longer feel smothered by all your attentions as the “good girlfriend”. He will have space to come to you, pursue you – just as it needs to be. This is his job as a man. It’s his job to call, make plans, let you know he’s interested, that he wants to be with you. Your job as a woman is to receive HIS attentions – wholeheartedly, without reservations. You job is to keep your heart open, and receive his love. This is not such an easy thing for women – to be vulnerable and open. But it pays off big time. And last…(women so often make this mistake…)

4. Remember this important key: A man is HAPPIEST when he’s actively making YOU happy. To get extra help on how to be so warm, welcoming and attractive that you’ll draw in a man who wants to make you happy – and KEEP him wanting to make you happy… Learning to “receive” from a man instead of “give” to him all the time will make a huge difference in your love life. Let us know how it changes things for you.

Sincerely, The Editors at Love Romance Relationship


Talk about EYE OPENING!  Every relationship I’m in from my family to my man I’m always trying to make everyone happy.  Trying to plan everything… Trying to fix everything… And always GIVING GIVING GIVING… Never allowing myself to RECEIVE.  How many of us primp ourselves for our man?  Planning the perfect date… The perfect vacation… The perfect moment… THEN get UPSET when he doesn’t give us the reaction or the “perfection” back? *raises hand* I’m thinking about how many arguments I could have avoided if I were focused on making myself happy first?   When he doesn’t respond the way I expect I find myself saying, “but I was just trying to make you happy”.  Now I realize that is NOT my responsibility.   Talk about a load off my back.  I’ll have to admit this is a foreign concept to me because I am the ultimate doer.  I truly enjoy making the people around me happy but I now see I need to put myself first.  Especially were me and my man are concerned.  Allowing myself to relax and letting him step up to the plate.  It seems easy enough but all my “motherly” type females will agree, letting go of the reigns can be challenging, but I’m going to let go and let others.  Hope you all were able to get something valuable from this email.  Leave a comment with your reactions, thoughts, experiences regarding this message.  Till next time…

Pisces Best and Worst Relationship Matches


You are the artist, the dreamer, the enigmatic lover of all things ethereal. It is why of all the signs you may be the hardest to pin down, but once love sinks its teeth into you, your heart turns to mush and the Piscean mind which floats around so airily, lights of fire with passion and romance.

The Pisces can’t help but be an empathetic creature. They are always reaching out and if they touch you, their caring and sympathy can be infectious. It is why developing crushes on Pisces can be both rewarding and dangerous, and why being in relationships with them can be exactly the same. Their two sides can drive even the most accommodating lover insane but they can also find the right words to say when none seem to be appropriate.

Despite the Piscean ability to appear almost psychic they happen to be the only water sign that doesn’t have a shell (the others are Cancer and Scorpio). The fact that they live so much in their minds means that even the littlest comment, or offhand remark that seems to be directed at them, can completely unhinge them. This can make boy/girlfriend tiffs even more difficult since the ramifications of the standard relationship insults can have much more disastrous effects than anticipated. It is also good to remember that when starting to date, or even flirt with a Pisces, to make sure that only your best intention find their way to the surface and that any nefarious plans stay buried so deep that you don’t even know them.

If your Pisces feels threatened they will disappear. They can blend into walls, or bars, and like a chameleon they will make themselves scarce. In addition to this great invisibility to trick they can also give off such a mask of inapproachability that no one even wants to talk to them. This can also ward off unwanted romantic attention, but it can also prevent Pisces from the romance they desperately need in their lives.

***Hint to those interested in a Pisces: Don’t be off put by their standoffish nature, and pursue them gently but persistently, chances are you have nothing to with their flaky mood.

Because of the volatility of the Piscean personality and the sensitivity of their more spiritual and emotional personality they need a strong balancing force. This means that they tend to have a deeply important friend or relative or even a therapist, in their life, and that means that being in a relationship with a Pisces means accepting the other close connections that they have in their lives. If you learn to utilize and understand these connections they can work to help your dating and loving a Pisces, if you don’t and are threatened or suspicious of these people in his/her life, it will wreck your chances.

When starting to woo a Pisces it is important to remember that even though you may find them at first to be difficult to make decisions with, and usually have no idea what they feel like eating, or which movie they want to see, they are incredibly adaptive. Instead of constantly looking for their input it is important to use suggestion to tease out their wants and desires. They usually will love what you want and can be convinced to try any new food and watch anything, as long as it is short on violence and long on fun, thoughtful entertainment.

Best Relationship Matches

Virgo That ideal mate is your zodiacal opposite, but it is important to find a Virgo who is attenuated to your more soulful presence, and then you have someone who will pay the bills, and clean the house etc.

Cancer You water sign relatives will understand your deep emotional nature, and support you with his or her strength.

Scorpio Same as above, except they may wander off sooner rather than later.

8 foods that really are evil: some foods are so bad for you, they don't deserve a place in your diet. Here, what to avoid and some delicious substitutions - Nutrition

Dietitians are fond of reciting the mantra 'all foods can fit into a healthy diet' and telling people that there are no "good' or "bad" foods. But considering that 64 percent of adults (plus an alarming 15 percent of children) are categorized by the government as overweight, some experts say this message is baloney (which happens to be a really bad food!).

"The idea that there are no bad foods is a marketing gimmick thought up by the food industry to defend their products," says Bonnie Liebman, M.S., director of nutrition at the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), a nonprofit health-advocacy group based in Washington, D.C. "The whole notion is full of holes and makes no sense."

Evil is the only appropriate word to describe foods that promise pleasure but deliver misery in the form of heart disease and obesity. Although a Whoopie Pie isn't going to sprout fangs and go for your jugular, it's wise to watch your back when traveling the dark alley of empty calories. A sweet, creamy taste and jazzy packaging can be hiding a food that will only do you wrong. That's the thing about evil: Sometimes it looks so good.

The Dark Side of the supermarket

What makes a food really, really scary? In the edibles department, a food gets the seal of disapproval if it does more harm than good -- that is, if it supplies calories but little else, and also contains heart-disease-promoting substances like saturated and trans fats. Trans fats are the nasty man-made fats used to give foods a longer shelf life. Manufacturers hydrogenate oil to make it solid and literally twist the molecule into a form that wreaks havoc in the body.

Every food pyramid -- including the Shape Pyramid -- advocates a plant-based diet in which these destructive fats (as well as sweets) are "used sparingly." Unfortunately, supermarkets are brimming with such high-calorie, low-nutrient choices. Perhaps the biggest problem with foods that we are supposed to eat sparingly is that they simply are everywhere.

"The pendulum swings from abstinence to binge," says Elizabeth Somer, M.A., R.D., author of Nutrition for Women, Second Edition (Owl Books, 2003). "In our culture if you tell someone no, they only want to do it more,' she says. So instead of banning a bad food, choose a healthier substitute most of the time. And once in a while, when you really need to have a hot-fudge sundae or batch of nachos, opt for a small portion, sit down and savor every bite.

Following are eight foods to avoid or save for very special occasions because of the damage they inflict in calories, unhealthy fats and sodium -- plus some healthy and tasty substitutes that offer savings in calories and fat.

RELATED ARTICLE: 8 BAD ROODS TO AVOID (and their good alternatives)

1. Cola drinks

The damage (12 ounces) 150 calories, 0 g fat (10 teaspoons of sugar!) We take a hard line with soft drinks -- and cola is the worst offender. Full of sugar, corn syrup or other sweeteners and not much else, soft drinks pack 150 empty calories and have been pegged by research studies as being associated with both adult and childhood obesity, Cola drinks have the added detriment of a caffeine jolt that many of us just don't need. And it's easy to supersize yourself if you regularly consume the 42-ounce, 410-calorie versions served at fast-food restaurants and convenience stores.

"I recommend that patients stay away from sugar-sweetened beverages because these drinks may be replacing more healthful foods in the diet," says Cara Ebbeling, Ph.D., research associate at Children's Hospital in Boston. "In addition, there is evidence that when we take in calories in liquid form, the body doesn't fully compensate by reducing calories from other foods." In other words, your body doesn't register that you've just consumed a bunch of calories, because you don't feel full. This may lead to overeating.

Finally, sipping cola and other soft drinks bathes your teeth in cavity-promoting sugars -- whose effects continue up to 40 minutes after your last sip.

Healthy alternative Fruit spritzers (12 ounces): 0-15 calories, 0 g fat Sugar-sweetened beverages are easy to replace. Add a spritz of your favorite juice to flavored seltzer water or diet tonic water. Another idea: Add a few drops of vanilla extract to plain seltzer (steer clear of club soda, which contains sodium). Or enjoy a can of your favorite flavor of diet soda or sugar-free iced tea or coffee. You save 135-150 calories, 0 grams fat

2. Sour cream and onion potato chips

The damage (12 chips) 150 calories, 10 g fat (3 g saturated), 210 mg sodium Can't believe you ate the whole bag? Join the club! Empty calories, fat and sodium deliver a triple whammy that is the downfall of many. To make things worse, manufacturers take potato abuse to a new low by adding sour cream and onion flavoring to chips -- complete with extra saturated and trans fats and a dash of MSG.

Healthy alternative Raw veggies with homemade yogurt dip (1/2 cup veggies with 1/4 cup dip): 72 calories, 0 g fat, 106 g sodium (Mix 1/4 cup plain nonfat yogurt with 1 teaspoon fresh or dried herbs like parsley or dill. Add minced garlic or onion for extra zip.) It's surprising how satisfying it can be to munch on carrot sticks dipped in a tangy yogurt sauce -- honest! You save 78 calories, log fat, 104 g sodium.

3. Store-bought chocolate chip cookies

The damage (1 small cookie) 80 calories, 4.5 g fat (1.5 g saturated) Commercial baked goods like snack cakes, cookies and crackers are the source of most of our trans fat intake. And ounce for ounce, chocolate chip cookies take the cake when it comes to excess fat and calories. Some products are worse than others: If the label lists sugar, hydrogenated oil, white flour or a bunch of chemicals that read like a Material Safety Data Sheet, you know this product has gone over to the Dark Side of the supermarket.

Healthy alternative Fig bars (1 small fig bar): 60 calories, 1 g fat Figs, like all dried fruit, can really hit the sweet spot. Fortunately, there are several brands that don't use hydrogenated oils. One to try: Newman's Own Organics Fig Newmans. Or make your own healthful cookies or muffins using whole-grain flour and canola oil. You save 20 calories, 3.5 g fat.

4. Full-fat cheeses

The damage (1 ounce) 120 calories, 9-10 g fat (6 g saturated) Cheese, butter and ice cream all contain saturated fat, which can lead to heart disease and other health problems. Full-fat cheeses can have as many as 10 grams of fat per ounce, with more than half of those grams saturated, but for some reason we tend to consider cheese a healthy choice. "Most people think of lasagna as a good food,' Liebman says. "But with all that cheese, it's loaded with saturated fat!"

Healthy alternative Low fat ricotta (1/4 cup): 60 calories, 3 q fat No need to eat full-fat cheese when there are so many other acceptable dairy products: lowfat and fatfree ricotta and cottage cheese, skim milk or even plain yogurt (add your own fruit). You save 60 calories, 6-7 g fat.

5. Chocolate doughnuts

The damage (1 doughnut) 300 calories, 19 g fat (6 g saturated) All doughnuts are high in trans fat, sugar and calories. And although "bad doughnuts' may seem redundant, the chocolate-covered varieties cross the line into evil. Supermarket versions are the worst, at 19 grams of fat per doughnut, with doughnut-shop varieties a close second at about 16 grams.

Healthy alternative Raisin toast with peanut butter (1 slice raisin toast and 1 tablespoon reduced-fat peanut butter): 166 calories, 7 g fat (1.5 g saturated) You save 134 calories, 13 g fat (4.5 g saturated).

6. Regular bacon

The damage (2 slices, cooked and drained) 120 calories, 10 q fat (3 g saturated) Pigging out on bacon -- basically fried fat and salt -- can lead to more than expanding thighs. Cured meats like bacon, corned beef, ham and pastrami contain preservatives called nitrates that have been linked to stomach and colon cancers.

Healthy alternative Vegetarian sausage (2 links, cooked and drained): 80 calories, 3 g fat (0.5 g saturated) Instead of bringing home the bacon, why not fry up some veggie links? Morningstar Farms makes delicious vegetarian alternatives to pork and beef sausage. Turkey bacon is also a much healthier choice than pork. You save 40 calories, 7g fat (2.5 g saturated).

4 Ways to Bug Your Boss for More Money – and Get It!

by Linsey Knerl on 31 August 2010

Everyone knows we're in a recession, but let's face it: You may deserve to get paid much more than what you're getting now! Before you blow off the idea that your work is worth a bump in the pay scale, check out these four clever tips for putting in a good word about your worth. (See also: Underpaid? Here's How to Fix It.)

Wrangle References

This is an area where having an effective networking style can really pay off. Asking your current customers, co-workers, and colleagues for a few kind words about your performance isn't just useful during a hunt for new work. It can be a powerful tool in moving up your current career ladder, as well. You don't have to be transparent in your reason for asking; a simple "Would you mind sending an email with your thoughts on our working relationship?" will do. Save the best in a file to arm yourself with at your next performance review or compensation discussion.

Research Rates

Some companies are large enough to set their own industry rates — and get them. Others are completely oblivious to what someone in your position should be making. If you've caught wind that your job tasks are on par for the course of a higher-ranking (and higher-paying) position, bring this up to your boss. Explain that you realize that they may not have the cash to pay the going rate for someone with your expertise, but would they meet you halfway?

Value Added

Often, it's not about what they hire you to do that matters. If you are especially well-connected, possess a task or skill that puts you at a unique advantage, or have a willingness to perform beyond your peers (24/7 availability, maybe?), it's something that you should be paid well for. Demand that you get compensated for this value by letting management know how much they are getting!

Show Them the Money

For many companies, it's really just about dollars and cents. Did you save the company $X over last year? Would a process you helped to develop bring in extra money over time? What's the bottom line of your individual worth to the company? If it's well over what they are paying you, now's the time to document and sell your potential return on investment (ROI) with examples of how you can continue to grow in value.

Once you've gotten the OK to discuss a pay raise with your boss (in the form of a performance review or other scheduled meeting), come prepared with facts for each of the four methods above, and be sure that there are no outside distractions that could derail your attempts. Be confident, make positive forward-thinking statements, and never apologize for your request for more cash. Remember, you're worth it — now it's time that your boss knew, too!

Sagittarius And Pisces Compatibility

General Compatibility:

An unlikely pair these two might seem, the Water sign and Fire sign can actually benefit from each other a lot. Both these signs are governed by Jupiter but Pisces is also partly governed by Neptune. Pisces gives Sagittarius the understanding the others can't. On the other hand, Sagittarius will tell Pisces what it wants to hear. Pisces, like water, it fills any container that can be filled. Generally, Pisces has a lot of patience for everyone so giving the same to a partner is not surprising. Pisces has very humble and down to earth goals like maybe helping out in their own little way to preserve the environment or helping the less fortunate people while Sagittarius like working on the bigger projects that they know will have bigger impact and much better results. Both mutable signs, neither of these two will feel the need to be in control of the relationship. They will help each other in ways that others can't. Sagittarius will help Pisces go see the bigger picture and the latter will help in paying attention to details essential to the partnership. This is a good example of providing each other with things they lack. The key is that these two goes into things with the understanding that they do not expect a lot from each other and are open to new things that might come along their way.


Romantic Compatibility:

If in work and friendship these two can see eye-to-eye. It might not be the same as when they start to take things to the next level. A Piscean is lively and social like a Sagittarian but it also only moves in a small circle of friends. A Sagittarian has a lot more because being very extroverted it likes moving in and out of different circles and groups. This can make a Piscean insecure and Sagittarians will run for the nearest exit if they see the slightest hint of neediness and if the partner starts being clingy. Pisceans on the other hand likes to think things through so it will also not do good to rush them in to things. Usually a Sagittarian will just look for friends with benefits with a Piscean but the Fish will not settle for this. They want a partner but being dependent and shy will bore the Archer that he will either leave or have things on the side. An affair or short flings is possible once they feel trapped in a relationship and Pisces will not put up with that. The main problem for this combination would be, 1)communication, and 2) dependence-independence issues. Over time both might just wish they haven't even gone in this relationship.


Sexual Compatibility:

Small things turn a Piscean on. A kiss on the back of the neck when least expected; a friendly foot rub; or making small circles on the palm is very erotic to them. A Piscean, however, will seduce people through their emotions. They will show empathy that the others can't, drawing the Sagittarian to them. The Fish will want to seduce the Archer because they're attracted to his openness and erotic ideas. Sex will be exciting between these two but it might just be that way until they both realize they want different things.

2. A man is less likely to feel romantic if a woman is making his life miserable. If you want to cuddle, don't start a fight over leaving the toilet seat up or not taking out the garbage, Buzzkill.

3. Men are passionate about the things women hate. In general, when men tell you they don't like cartoons, stoner movies, action movies, motorcycles, South Park, sports, firearms, the Simpsons, and ESPN, etc. they are lying so that they can have sex with you. 

4. Men don't like women's entertainment. I'd rather eat glass than watch Bridget Jones, but I've watched it for sex.

5. There's only 24 hours in a day. Eight hours of sleep, ten hours at work, two hours commute, 90 minutes at the gym, and 90 minutes cooking, eating, and washing up leaves only one hour each day for "us" or "me" time. Keep your expectations reasonable and share. 10 Ways to Squeeze in More Sex

6. Women have cold hands, feet, butts, and other body parts. Men are not your personal heaters. Warm them or keep them to yourself.

7. A man's willingness to put up with a women's b.s. is directly proportional to how hot they are. Yes, men will kiss a beautiful women's ass for sex, that doesn't mean you're going to get the same treatment.

8. When women say they want to sit down and talk, men hear "I'm pissed." You never want to talk about things we like, like sports, so telling us you want to talk sends us the signal that you want to bring up something that's bothering you. You might fool us once in a while by actually wanting to talk about something the other sex is interested in. Men have to, it's called dating.

9. Men hate dating because we have to lie. Lying isn't fun. We can't wait to be married so we can really tell you how we feel about Bridget Jones. Unless he's a jerk, a man's happiest day is when he no longer has to lie to have sex.

10.  Working out doesn't count unless you sweat. We don't want to hear about how tough your yoga class was if all the girls in class are wearing makeup. The Joy of Flex: Exercise Better Together

Aries 2012 Predictions

Aries 2012 Predictions (March 21 - April 19) Aries 2012 PredictionsAries, the very first sign of the zodiac, exudes a great sense of adventurism, enthusiasm, and seems to have an unlimited source of energy within them. Courageous Arians, those born between March 21st and April 19th and represented by image of the Ram, are chock full of admirable attributes and the upcoming year of 2012 is one that will prove to brimming with positive and well deserved change.

Love and Relationships: Aries 2012 Predictions

Family life improves this year, especially during the last two quarters, and Aries should look to the home front for solace while enjoying the strengthening bonds between spouses and children who both bring with them great happiness to the Ram.

Aries are always open to new ideas, thoughts and suggestions, and while they love their freedom, their great adaptability allows them to make the best of just about any situation. Single Arians shouldn't overlook the possibility of a chance meeting, particularly during the middle of the year, which could easily become a strong friendship before blossoming into love.

The Ram should work on their communication and people skills this year, learning how to be a little more supportive and tactful when dealing with less than ideal situations that may arise in interpersonal relationships. The rewards of doing so will be great when harmony and peace are the result whether it's at home or at work.

Career and Finance: Aries 2012 Predictions

Working Rams shouldn't hesitate to express themselves and their creativity this year as on the professional front, 2012 could bring about some great improvements, although they may not come to fruition until the year's second quarter. Expand your horizons and collaborate with likeminded people who are equally as driven while putting your best foot forward in the ever competitive world of business and industry.

Fortunately, Aries will start to have a clearer picture in terms of finance, allowing them to spend their money a bit more judiciously than they did in the past. However, the beginning of the year isn't favorable for things like pay raises, promotions, job changes, or investments, so it's probably best to wait until the third or fourth quarters for these and similar financial prospects to improve.

Health: Aries 2012 Predictions

Most all Arians should experience a year filled with good health in 2012, but the only caveat to this is getting the proper amount of exercise and the right nutrition. Setting aside time for rest and relaxation to stay balanced and calm is important for Aries who despite their high energy levels, tend to take on more than they can reasonably handle by compromising their own needs.

Do make it a point to take part in some outdoor activities and adventures, especially during June and July, to rejuvenate and balance your energy levels while getting in touch with nature.


Exciting and encouraging news for surviving 2012 are sprinkled throughout the year and in general, Aries will enjoy a year of changes that have been brewing for at least the past five years or more, bringing with them relief from troubling frustrations and anxieties. 

Building Strong Family Relationships

info taken from : http://ag.udel.edu/extension/fam/FM/issue/strongfamily.htm

Our society thrives on strong families. 
Our family teaches us how to function in the world. It should provide love and warmth to all of its members. A strong family gives its members the support they need to make it through life’s toughest spots.

Strong families have good communication. 
Strong families have open lines of communication -- where all family members feel heard and respected. One of the best ways to strengthen your family is to increase your listening skills and those of other family members. Until we can hear each other, we cannot build strong relationships.

To build strong family relationships, listen actively to each other.

  • Give the person your full attention, turn off the TV or put down what you are doing.
  • Focus on what the person is telling you -- rather than thinking about your reaction or response to what is being said. (There will be time for that.)
  • Listen for how the other person is feeling and relay back to them what you think they were saying and how they are feeling. “I hear you saying that you don’t like your sister. You look pretty mad. Did something happen?"
  • Resist giving advice or your reaction until you are certain you have fully understood what the person was saying to you.

Use “I” messages rather than “You” messages when talking. 
"I" messages are more difficult because they require us to be clear about our own thoughts and feelings. They, however, increase the chances that our message will be heard and decrease the chances that a fight will begin.

“I don’t like all this fighting. It upsets me to see the two of you not getting along.” 
Rather than “ What’s wrong with the two of you? You’re making me crazy! Can’t you ever get along?”

Teach everyone in your family to talk with “I” messages as much a possible. You are much more likely to resolve problems when the focus is on behaviors and how those behaviors are affecting you or the family.

“You” messages should be discouraged because they often lead to bad feelings and increased fighting. “You” messages seldom resolve the problem.

Encourage all family members to share their thoughts and feelings. 
Strong families allow all family members -- no matter how young or small -- to talk about their thoughts and feelings. This does not mean that members are not respectful of one another, but rather that feelings and ideas are respected. Everyone should be expected to express themselves in appropriate ways -- such as with “I” messages. When people feel heard and respected, they feel better about themselves, are more open to solving problems, and are more likely to allow others to express themselves. 

Strong families spend time together.

In today’s busy world it can be difficult for families to find time to be together. All relationships need attention -- and this includes the family as a whole.

Family rituals can offer a set time for families to get together and give each other the attention that is needed. A family ritual is simply a time that is set aside on a regular basis for a family to get together. This can mean having dinner together, celebrating a holiday together, going to church together, or just going for a walk together every week. It is important that the family ritual be predictable and that other activities are not allowed to upset it.

Family rituals help define who is in our family and who we are as a family. It allows time for the family to get together, to share experiences with one another, and to reconnect with each other. Knowing that the family will have time together can help us deal with those times when we are apart. Even though parents may work, children can know that each evening, each weekend (or whenever works for your family) they will have some “special time” with you. 

Every child is special and every child needs some special time when he can have his parent all to himself. 
Giving your child some “special time” helps develop a close relationship with your child. Consider setting aside some time -- perhaps 15 minutes -- for each child each week. (Better yet, 15 minutes each day, if that is possible.) Make it a predictable ritual so that the child can depend on it and look forward to this time with you. Be sure that this “special time” is not easily interrupted by other activities. For example, don’t answer the phone during this time.

Allow your child to help you decide how to spend this time. You could read books, sing songs, go for a walk, play a game -- or whatever your child enjoys. The more you are able to spend “special time” with your child the stronger your relationship will be.

Look for opportunities to connect with your child. 
Although setting aside time with your child is important, also look for small moments that you can use to connect with your child. You can make up stories together while doing chores, talk about concerns while on the way to the grocery store, read a book together while waiting for dinner to finish. We often think we have to wait for our “special time” but all these small moments help us stay connected in between the more scheduled times.

Strong families handle their conflict fairly. 
All families have conflict--it’s a natural part of human relationships. Strong families are able to work through fights and disagreements by focusing on the problems, rather than by “tearing each other down.”

Keys to Fair Fighting

Stay focused on the behavior or problem.
Use “I” messages to express your thoughts and feelings about the problem. For example, if you and your child are arguing about bedtime, you could say “I get angry when you continue to argue with me even after I’ve told you my decision. I want you to go to bed now.” instead of “You never listen to me. Go to bed now or I’ll spank you.”

Stay focused on the present problem.
Do not bring up old issues and problems. These only distract from the present issue. You can discuss them later.

Respect each other’s right to safety. 
Fights should never become violent. When people are so angry that they feel like hitting one another or throwing things, then the discussion should be stopped. Agree to get together to talk again after everyone has had a chance to calm down.

Use your problem solving skills to create new solutions to the problem and teach your kids to think of ways to resolve conflict. 
It is not useful to fight about what isn’t working. Instead, focus on what has worked in the past or what could work now.

For bedtime problems, you could try saying, “I am tired of always arguing with you about your bedtime. Let’s come up with some new ways that you can get to bed without all this hassle.” Then you and your child could think of some solutions and decide which one to try. The more you include your child, the better problem solver he will be -- and the more likely to follow through with the plan. 

Strong Families Develop Trust. 
Strong, healthy families recognize the importance of developing trust. Trust is the glue that holds relationships together.

Some ways to develop trust in your family are:

  • Give your child opportunities to earn your trust. Let her do small tasks around the house and praise her for doing it on her own.
  • Show your child that you can be trusted. Children need to know that they can count on what their parents say. Follow through with the things you promise to do.
  • Allow people in your family to make amends. We all make mistakes. Teach your child to forgive and allow yourself to forgive others. Holding on to past hurts often only hurts us.
  • Teach everyone how to say “I’m sorry.” Taking responsibility for our good and our bad behaviors is important and helps to develop trust. People learn to trust that they can be loved even though they are not perfect.

How to Become Self Employed (And When to Do It)


This is a guest post by Aimee Sway.  Self employment isn’t a cakewalk and anyone who tells you otherwise is probably only out to take your money.

That said, I feel there are a ton of rewards that more than make up for all the not so easy stuff.  But it’s hard to make that initial decision of “should you or shouldn’t you” sometimes.  Hopefully Aimee’s thoughts on self employment can help you make the right one.

Self employment is a dream for many of us who have worked the regular 9 to 5. For some, the ability to go out on our own to seek our fortune comes naturally.

For others, it is a bit more of a push to take that first step, and more so to keep moving day by day. But whatever side you are coming from, you can be sure that the benefits will almost always outweigh the risk.

That is because when you become self employed, you are becoming your own boss in a niche you are passionate about, with unlimited potential.

That isn’t to say that it will be easy, far from it. There will be a lot of hard hours, frustrations and mistakes. Sometimes you might find yourself set back a step or two, and sometimes more like ten. But if you know how to learn from those errors and keep pressing until you move ahead, you will be uniquely placed to make it in your company, however big or small.

But how do you know how to get started, or even if you are the type of person who can make it on your own? You might be wondering how big the risks really are, or if the time is right. You might even be worried that your idea isn’t a viable one, and that you will be sticking your neck out on nothing more than a scheme. These are all valid fears, and so we will address each one.

Am I Right For Self Employment?

There is no specific formula that makes up a good small business owner. There seems to be a myth that some special qualities exist, as though self employment is Excalibur stuck in the stone, and only one who is pure of heart (or extra business savvy) can yank it out. But it doesn’t work that way. If you have some kind of talent or expertise, whether it be sales, an invented product or creative faculties, you have your niche. Even a firm desire is enough to get you on your way.

You may also think a business degree is necessary. There is no doubt that it can really help to have a firm knowledge of economics and small business, even marketing and management. But for the most part, even with those degrees you would be learning as you go. There is nothing stopping you from keeping things small, maybe even working as a contractor, and then hiring work out when you need to.

So, to answer the question of whether or not you are right for self employment, you have to ask yourself a few questions:

  • Am I able to get organized and keep myself on schedule?
  • Can I get things done without answering to someone else?
  • Is this something I am ready to dedicate myself to?
  • Do I really want this?

It may seem too simple, but really all you need to become self employed is an idea, and a firm desire and willingness to put in all the work necessary to make it happen.

Is It The Right Time?

There is never a right or wrong time to jump into this. I was down on my luck when I started. I had been laid off from a job I couldn’t stand, and I didn’t know what to do. Bills were coming in, and I was running out of savings fast. It didn’t help that the only thing I had ever wanted to do was write, which isn’t well known for drawing in the big bucks right away. But I knew I had to do something, and so I set out to find a way to make money doing it. Years later and I am still working as a writer, and I make enough to take care of my family. I made it work for me at a time when I needed it.

I’m not saying to quit your day job and jump in feet first on a whim. But if you are asking yourself if it is the right time, it is probably at least the moment to start the ground work and move toward that goal. If you start out slowly, maybe by generating the data on your product, opening an online store or working part time, you will minimize the risk. You might be overworked, but you can give yourself a cushion to land on when you decide to take the full leap.

Is My Idea Worth It?

Only you can know that. But finding out the current trends and demand can help you figure it out. If it is a well-used product, you have to make sure the market isn’t so bloated that you won’t be able to find yourself a spot. If it is a specialty product, you have to see if there is a real consumer base. Either way, if you can find something special that you can offer that is different, better or both than the competition, you have something worth jumping into.

Even if you have established a service that will make you one of the pack, you will probably be OK if the trade is a necessity. For example, there are sure to be dozens of plumbers in your city. But if you are considering opening up your own company it won’t matter how saturated the market is; everyone needs a plumber sometimes.

The Pros of Self Employment

The pros of becoming self employed are pretty obvious: you are your own boss, you get to set your own hours, you don’t have to bow to the politics so prevalent in the workplace, and you can often make better money once you are established than the usual set pay. These stack up against the cons: no steady paycheck, higher risk, lack of interaction with coworkers, and you pay your own costs at full price.

But I know that I myself have never regretted becoming self employed, and neither have any of my contacts that did the same thing. If you feel you are in a position to take that step, then I would recommend you take it. Isn’t it everyone’s dream to have their own business?

Take Charge: Fighting Back Against Identity Theft


In the course of a busy day, you may write a check at the grocery store, charge tickets to a ball game, rent a car, mail your tax returns, change service providers for your cell phone, or apply for a credit card. Chances are you don't give these everyday transactions a second thought. But an identity thief does.

Identity theft is a serious crime. People whose identities have been stolen can spend months or years and thousands of dollars cleaning up the mess the thieves have made of a good name and credit record. In the meantime, victims of identity theft may lose job opportunities, be refused loans for education, housing, or cars, and even get arrested for crimes they didn't commit. Humiliation, anger, and frustration are among the feelings victims experience as they navigate the process of rescuing their identity.

Working with other government agencies and organizations, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has produced this booklet to help you remedy the effects of an identity theft. It describes what steps to take, your legal rights, how to handle specific problems you may encounter on the way to clearing your name, and what to watch for in the future.



I first was notified that someone had used my Social Security number for their taxes in February 2004. I also found out that this person opened a checking account, cable and utility accounts, and a cell phone account in my name. I'm still trying to clear up everything and just received my income tax refund after waiting four to five months. Trying to work and get all this cleared up is very stressful.


From a consumer's complaint to the FTC, July 9, 2004

Despite your best efforts to manage the flow of your personal information or to keep it to yourself, skilled identity thieves may use a variety of methods to gain access to your data.

How identity thieves get your personal information:

  • They get information from businesses or other institutions by:
    • stealing records or information while they're on the job
    • bribing an employee who has access to these records
    • hacking these records
    • conning information out of employees
  • They may steal your mail, including bank and credit card statements, credit card offers, new checks, and tax information. 
  • They may rummage through your trash, the trash of businesses, or public trash dumps in a practice known as "dumpster diving."
  • They may get your credit reports by abusing their employer's authorized access to them, or by posing as a landlord, employer, or someone else who may have a legal right to access your report.
  • They may steal your credit or debit card numbers by capturing the information in a data storage device in a practice known as "skimming." They may swipe your card for an actual purchase, or attach the device to an ATM machine where you may enter or swipe your card.
  • They may steal your wallet or purse.
  • They may complete a "change of address form" to divert your mail to another location. 
  • They may steal personal information they find in your home. 
  • They may steal personal information from you through email or phone by posing as legitimate companies and claiming that you have a problem with your account. This practice is known as "phishing" online, or pretexting by phone.

How identity thieves use your personal information:

  • They may call your credit card issuer to change the billing address on your credit card account. The imposter then runs up charges on your account. Because your bills are being sent to a different address, it may be some time before you realize there's a problem.
  • They may open new credit card accounts in your name. When they use the credit cards and don't pay the bills, the delinquent accounts are reported on your credit report. 
  • They may establish phone or wireless service in your name.
  • They may open a bank account in your name and write bad checks on that account.
  • They may counterfeit checks or credit or debit cards, or authorize electronic transfers in your name, and drain your bank account. 
  • They may file for bankruptcy under your name to avoid paying debts they've incurred under your name, or to avoid eviction.
  • They may buy a car by taking out an auto loan in your name.
  • They may get identification such as a driver's license issued with their picture, in your name. 
  • They may get a job or file fraudulent tax returns in your name.
  • They may give your name to the police during an arrest. If they don't show up for their court date, a warrant for arrest is issued in your name.

If Your Personal Information Has Been Lost or Stolen

If you've lost personal information or identification, or if it has been stolen from you, taking certain steps quickly can minimize the potential for identity theft.

Financial accounts: Close accounts, like credit cards and bank accounts, immediately. When you open new accounts, place passwords on them. Avoid using your mother's maiden name, your birth date, the last four digits of your Social Security number (SSN) or your phone number, or a series of consecutive numbers.

Social Security number: Call the toll-free fraud number of any of the three nationwide consumer reporting companies and place an initial fraud alert on your credit reports. An alert can help stop someone from opening new credit accounts in your name. See consumer reporting company contact information. For more information about fraud alerts, see the Fraud Alerts box.

Driver's license/other government-issued identification: Contact the agency that issued the license or other identification document. Follow its procedures to cancel the document and to get a replacement. Ask the agency to flag your file so that no one else can get a license or any other identification document from them in your name.

Once you've taken these precautions, watch for signs that your information is being misused. See STAYING ALERT.

If your information has been misused, file a report about the theft with the police, and file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission, as well. If another crime was committed for example, if your purse or wallet was stolen or your house or car was broken into report it to the police immediately.



If you are a victim of identity theft, take the following four steps as soon as possible, and keep a record with the details of your conversations and copies of all correspondence.

1. Place a fraud alert on your credit reports, and review your credit reports.

Fraud alerts can help prevent an identity thief from opening any more accounts in your name. Contact the toll-free fraud number of any of the three consumer reporting companies below to place a fraud alert on your credit report. You only need to contact one of the three companies to place an alert. The company you call is required to contact the other two, which will place an alert on their versions of your report, too.

Equifax: 1-800-525-6285; www.equifax.com; P.O. Box 740241, Atlanta, GA 30374- 0241

Experian: 1-888-EXPERIAN (397-3742); www.experian.com; P.O. Box 9554, Allen, TX 75013

TransUnion: 1-800-680-7289; www.transunion.com; Fraud Victim Assistance Division, P.O. Box 6790, Fullerton, CA 92834-6790

Once you place the fraud alert in your file, you're entitled to order free copies of your credit reports, and, if you ask, only the last four digits of your SSN will appear on your credit reports.Once you get your credit reports, review them carefully. Look for inquiries from companies you haven't contacted, accounts you didn't open, and debts on your accounts that you can't explain. Check that information, like your SSN, address(es), name or initials, and employers are correct. If you find fraudulent or inaccurate information, get it removed. SeeCorrecting Credit Reports to learn how. Continue to check your credit reports periodically, especially for the first year after you discover the identity theft, to make sure no new fraudulent activity has occurred.

5 ways to get his attention in 72 seconds

You’ve probably heard that people make split-second decisions when they meet others — especially potential romantic partners. People are indeed very skilled at judging some traits quickly. Sam Gosling, Ph.D., from the University of Texas at Austin recently coauthored a study that revealed, “people get pretty good reads on others for the traits of extraversion, openness to new experiences, likability, and self-esteem” based on their photos alone. But what about when you’re meeting with someone in person for the first time? According to Joe Navarro, nonverbal communication expert and coauthor of What Every BODY is Saying, “You have four opportunities to impress others — at a distance, when you shake hands, as you converse, and as you leave.” 

Armed with this knowledge, why not use the first minute or two with your (potential) Mr. Right doing everything, well, right? Here are some great tips for catching his eye — and maybe even his heart — in those crucial early moments. 

1. Wear something red
You can do something to command attention before you even leave the house by putting on a fetching red sweater or dress. A study recently published in British Psychological Society Research Digest shows that humans are attracted to the color red. Researchers found that when a woman wears the ever-popular crimson hue, men sit closer to her and ask more intimate questions. Lead researcher, Daniela Niesta Kayser, Ph.D., says: “I wanted to demonstrate that despite social psychological factors that are known to impede acting on one’s attraction to someone (e.g., shyness, lack of self-esteem, performance situation), the color red had such a powerful effect that it would overcome those barriers to real behavior.” The positive effect can also carry over into online dating, so you might want to consider posting a picture of yourself wearing red to amp up your profile’s visual appeal!

2. Work those pretty peepers
Eye contact is important, even before you introduce yourself the person you’d like to get to know better. In fact, if it’s done right, your eyes can literally bring him to you. Navarro suggests softening your features before scoping out someone cute: “Always look with a relaxed face. A smile is fine, but it’s not needed as long as the look says, ‘When I look at you I relax psychologically.’” He also advises repeating the eye-contact routine more than six times in a three-minute period to send a clear message about your intentions. 

3. Speak at a natural volume
If you feel tempted to lower your voice an octave or two when you meet a good-looking man, you’re not alone. American psychologists at Pennsylvania’s Albright College and the University of Baltimore found that both men and women lower the tone of their speaking voices when they find the person they’re chatting up to be attractive. The catch is men tend to prefer feminine, melodious voices, so making any extra effort isn’t necessarily worth it. Nicholas Boothman, author of How to Make People Like You in 90 Seconds, weighs in: “Always be yourself and don’t try too hard — it’s the number one turn-off.” 

4. Relax and use humor to break the ice
Perhaps the most important thing to remember is that flirting isn’t rocket science. Chances are that guy wants to meet you, too. Brian Hayford, 29, an artist in Wisconsin, says that all you need to do in order to draw him in is “smile and make a witty comment that’s funny, but not overly mean.” Steer clear of touchy subjects, like politics, when you first meet new people. Instead, joke about your surroundings or popular culture. When you’re tempted to say something ribald or outrageous to get attention, Sam Gosling suggests that you proceed with caution: “With the right cheeky glint in her eye, a woman could probably pull it off — but it would be harder [than for a man] because expectations for what counts as acceptable behavior are quite different for men and women.” Boothman agrees: “Everyone likes witty and funny/smart people, but the tone should stay lighthearted — no one likes people who are too aggressive in their opinions or use vulgar language, gestures or anecdotes.” In other words, it’s OK to let your inner Lisa Lampanelli out…but wait until after you’ve gotten to know someone first. 

5. Keep your body language open
If you tend to be a bit shy, it might feel natural to cross your arms or turn slightly away from others, but people are more sensitive to these cues than you think. If you want to strike up a conversation with an attractive stranger, pay attention to the signals your body language is sending. Don’t fidget, look down, or slouch. Instead, sit or stand in a relaxed and confident manner. Kira Sabin, a professional dating coach in Wisconsin, says it’s particularly important to think about your body language when you’re talking to a friend in a crowded place. “If you are only turned toward your friend, then your body is saying, ‘we are in a closed conversation.’ With both of you facing toward the room, it says, ‘we are nice and friendly — come talk to us.’” 

Mark Zuckerberg announces Facebook’s big changes

Today, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg unveiled some huge changes to the social network and its platform at f8, Facebook’s developer conference.

The tagline for today’s event is “Read. Watch. Listen,” which foreshadows the media features and content consumption and sharing functionality Zuckerberg announced from the stage.

But before Zuckerberg stepped onto the stage, Andy Samberg appeared to give his signature send-up of the young CEO, which both the crowd and “Zuck” himself clearly got a kick out of.

Timeline: The new Facebook Profile

Pointing out that the past five years have been about connecting people to one another, Zuckerberg told the crowd that half a billion people logged into Facebook in a single day just last week, a new record for the company.

“The next year is going to be defined by the apps and the depth of engagement that is possible now that everyone has their networks in place and connections established,” Zuckerberg said.

First, Zuckerberg unveiled Facebook’s new Profile UI, called Timeline: a curation of stories, apps and new ways to self-express in visual ways.

We’ve known for some time that Facebook Profiles were getting ready for a major interface and experience overhaul. In fact, Facebook’s been acquiring and hiring non-coding designers specifically to work on how Profiles present information about the user.

Over the summer, a Facebooker told us in an off-the-record interview that Facebook Profiles were soon going to become a much better way to get an at-a-glance picture of who you are, what you do, and what you like.

“Millions of people have spent years curating the stories of their lives,” said the CEO, noting that Facebook Profiles are too difficult a way to really get to know someone else or share information about yourself. He called the new Timeline “the next few hours of an in-depth conversation” between two people, whereas current Profiles are the first few minutes.

Timelines reflect the current state of web and app design. They’re in keeping with the multimedia-rich, touch-friendly look and feel of modern application design.

In addition to design, Zuckerberg talks about how Timeline sorts content algorithmically. As the user scrolls down a Timeline, information becomes more and more summarized. In other words, you’ll see more stories from this month, fewer stories from last year, and a highly condensed version of what happened to you in 2009. On the right column of the Timeline, you can click to narrow down to a given year or month.

Here’s an overview of how Timelines work:


Even though users tend to instantly hate any changes to their favorite web apps’ interfaces, Zuckerberg said while reviewing some of Timeline’s features, “We think that people are really going to like these… We wanted to design a place that you’re proud to call your home. It’s a completely new aesthetic for Facebook.”

Zuckerberg said the new Timeline is launching with a developer beta right now. In a later press conference, the company’s product chief, Chris Cox, noted that for most users, the rollout would be gradual and would occur over the next several weeks.

Ticker: A lightweight stream of what you’re up to

Next, Zuckerberg told the audience that Facebook will now allow users to express more specifically what they’re up to.

“We’re helping to define a new language for how people connect. When we started, the vocabulary was limited.” In other words, you’ve had to “like” brands, books, movies, locations — every kind of page on Facebook just got a simple “like.”

Now, instead of “liking” a book, you can tell friends you read it through Facebook’s new activities vocabulary. And you can do so without annoying all your friends.

When you share a post, it goes into your Timeline. But when you have an activity from the Open Graph, it goes into Ticker. Ticker activity appears in real time; you can see the Ticker on the right side of the Facebook homepage.

Ticker posts have some cool real-time interactions, too. From the stage, Zuckerberg demonstrated a Spotify integration that allows you to listen to a song in a Spotify note in Ticker just by hovering over the post.

For Ticker-type activity coming into Facebook from outside apps, users won’t get prompts for each lightweight action. Accordingly, the Permissions dialog has been redesigned. It’s simpler, and it gives automatic sharing functions to the app. Settings can be modified later from Facebook’s app and security pages.

Of course, a constant stream of real-time, lightweight activity from all your Facebook friends is a lot of noise and very little signal. Facebook is also allowing users to find patterns in this activity by digging a bit deeper on friends’ profiles. For example, you can see a friend’s favorite bands or albums based on Ticker activity from Spotify.

And speaking of Spotify, Facebook is getting ready to make some big music, movies and media announcements.

Love Match - Capricorn and Aquarius


By , About.com Guide

This is a pairing with major challenges. Such different outlooks. Capricorn wants to shore up the foundation, while Aquarius is all about busting out. Capricorn leans toward tradition, while Aquarius lives for the newfangled. The Goat is cool at first, looking for a sure thing, and finds Aquarius too unpredictable and socially zigzaggy. Aquarius hates to be pinned down, and rebels against mapping out the future. All this creates friction that often keeps things from going too far.

When dating, the Waterbearer can be turned off by the namedropping, social status-minded Goat. Aquarius hates to be labeled, judged or placed in a particular class category. Capricorn's tendency to put everyone in their place, that craving for social hierarchy, will send Aquarius right out the door. Capricorn sizes things up, looking for a mutually beneficial arrangement -- like marriage -- for the long haul. The Aquarian chafes at the union being set in stone, something that the stability-seeking Capricorn longs for. But with other planets in harmony, something enduring with plenty of room to come and go, pleases both.

For Capricorn, time is money; for Aquarius time is an illusion. The latter doesn't mind going off on tangents, job-hopping, and creating instant friends. Capricorn prefers to settle into a mega-career, and tends to nurture a small circle of connections. Capricorn might find the experimental, anything goes style of the Waterbearer unsettling. And Aquarius likely finds the Goat's rootedness stifling at times. It's also hard for Aquarius to relate the deeply interior sadness of Capricorn.

If the shared synastry is enough to balance things out, these differences become strengths to offer the other. Capricorn helps Aquarius find the tangible structure for their innovations. Aquarius shows the Goat that there are shortcuts, and alternative ways of getting where they're going. Aquarius gives the Goat license to drop the mask of self-control, and shocks them into spontaneity. These signs are known to have an uncommonly wise outlook. When they can harmonize the issues of freedom vs. control; chaos vs. order; tradition vs. the wave of the future, the relationship that emerges brings together the best of both their worlds.

Too Old for Facebook?

Those born in the 1970s and earlier are discovering that the social-networking site can be a compelling way to communicate

Fortunately, Debbie Weil had a 24-year-old daughter to clue her in when she joined Facebook. So daughter guided mom on the basics of the online social network, like "friending" another member or writing on someone's "wall." But daughter refused to tell mom what it meant to "poke" someone. So, Mom simply never pressed that button, unsure what it would do and a bit embarrassed to ask anyone else. "I've written a corporate blogging book and I still don't know what it means to poke someone," says Weil, a blogging consultant who gives her age as somewhere north of 45.

In growing numbers, the older set is discovering what millions of college students already know: Facebook can be a compelling, even addictive way, to communicate.


In just two months, Weil has accumulated 197 Facebook friends, including Steve Case, Chris Anderson, and Robert Scoble. Weil is one of the millions of people in their mid-30s and older who've joined Facebook during the past year. In all, unique visitors age 35 and older surged to 11.5 million in June. That was more than twice as many as a year ago and represented more than 40% of Facebook's total traffic in June, according to comScore Media Metrix.

There are quite a few groups within Facebook that cater to the older crowd. The "Born in the 60s. Any of us out there?" group boasts 1,950 members. Another group called "Unlike 99.99% of the Facebook population, I was born in the 50s" has 251 members.

Susan Pereira, 37, joined Facebook about two months ago and belongs to group whose name is no longer terribly apt: "Unlike 99.99% of the Facebook population, I was born in the 70s" now boasts 87,408 members. "I think a lot of people are turned off [by Facebook], thinking it's a kids thing, but I have found so many people my age getting into it and realizing how much fun it is," Pereira, a veterinary office assistant in Vancouver writes in a Facebook message to me. "It's such an amazing way to reconnect with people, stay in contact with people who matter and make new friends."


Pereira has a point. Although I've built profiles on a handful of social-networking sites, Facebook is the first I've actually wanted to use in my personal life. MySpace always felt a bit intimidating, like going to a huge frat party alone. But with Facebook's privacy tools, it feels like there's more control.

But unlike anything I've encountered in my 37 years, Facebook makes me really feel like I've finally crossed over to the other side of the generation gap. I'm not entirely clear on all of Facebook's unwritten social rules, all the things that college kids seem to understand intuitively. Yes, that includes what it means to poke someone. Facebook's help page says only that "a poke is a way to interact with your friends on Facebook" and that "people interpret the poke in many different ways." That's really no help. If I poke my boss as a playful gesture, for instance, will I be fired for sexual harassment?

"You have to be careful. It depends on what your relationship is with people originally," says Tom Krieglstein, 26, the founder of SwiftKick, a company that helps educate students and school administrators about social-networking sites like Facebook. "It can have a sexual connotation," but also can be used as a business tool to build rapport with colleagues and clients, Krieglstein says.


Then there's the fundamental question of just how much personal information to reveal. While privacy doesn't appear to be much of an issue for the younger crowd, older people are often more wary about sharing personal bits of their lives. Facebook profiles include room for personal information such as your birthday, dating or marital status, sexual preferences, religion, politics, education, and details of your job. Right off the bat, you can list exactly what you're looking for, whether it's friendship, dating, or random play, which, be warned, is not a pickup game of flag football.

Weil says she really struggles with how much personal information to reveal. She recently posted a map on her profile of all the places she's been and the places she'd like to go. But she wonders if that's too personal. While most younger people likely wouldn't think twice about something like that, I can sympathize.

When I built out my Facebook profile, for instance, I expected it to be entirely personal and pretty much limited to my real-life family and friends. Now, when I get friend requests from people I barely know, I need to consider whether I'd want them to see the phone numbers in my profile, detailed information about my husband, or that one of my current TV obsessions is Scott Baio is 45…and Single. My work and home e-mail accounts are already flooded with press releases and spam, so I'm not sure I want my Facebook "News Feed" to be littered with updates from people I really don't know.


Because Facebook requires members to approve or ignore each friend request, decisions need to be made as to who exactly qualifies as a friend. "I got a friend request from Facebook from someone who's as close to a professional enemy as I have," says Clay Shirky, an adjunct professor at NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program. Shirky decided not to accept the invitation. Yet there are lots of gradations between best friend and professional enemy, so deciding who makes the cut can be hard. I've only accepted invitations from people whom I know well enough to give my cell-phone number. So far, because most of my close friends are not yet on Facebook, I've only got seven friends.

It's a challenge that other thirtysomethings face as well. Tracy Lynn Deis, 38, a consultant in Chicago, joined Facebook about a month ago and wishes more of her thirtysomething friends would join. "I've made new friends on Facebook, but they're all younger than me," says Deis, who now visits Facebook every day. "It's an awesome way to talk and to share family pictures," she says.

Intrepid Facebook souls that we are, Weil and I decide it's high time we find out what actually happens when you press the poke button. Does it send some sort of X-rated message? So, she tests it out on me. Turns out, it's a harmless message in my Facebook News Feed that says, "You were poked by Debbie Weil."

Virgo Woman: Virgo (Aug 23- Sep 22)

Virgo is the most hard-working women sun sign in the constellation. Most Virgo women are very hard working, dedicated to their work and extremely diligent. Virgo women always like to work hard to produce good results. Their work is extremely critical for them. Providence has it that they keep looking for new opportunities and chances so that they can improve their life and their profession. To meet life’s unique challenges, they develop their skills to their maximum extent possible. A typical Virgo woman is a person for all seasons! She can change her mindset and soul to adjust to even the most difficult situations of life.

She has an active mind that keeps working throughout day and night. However, this active mind may prevent her from sitting idle and have relaxation. The great planet of Mercury rules a Virgo woman; everyone knows that Mercury is a planet that controls your brain and intellect. Naturally, endowed giftedness and a brilliant analytical mind will provide them an opportunity to perform to their best of their abilities. Virgo women are very critical and analyzing with a probing mind of their own. The only downside is that they can be too probing and fault finding to the extent that people can find them too boring and ordinary at times.

Virgo women are difficult to beat at arguments! However, they can be very caring for those who care for her! They know their limitations and they look for abundance part of their life rather their limitations. This impassable quality makes them darling of a party crowd. A typical Virgo woman is very choosy about her wants and needs while her demand for exquisite food is legendary! She has lot of concerns about her health and well-being. She may have to choose what she eats and drinks because of her perceived weaknesses in her digestive system. Immature and emotionally short Virgo women can be self-indulgent and self-defeating at times.

Virgo Woman Health

As mentioned before, Virgo women have a very weak digestive system that may pose some serious problems in their life. They will be at their guard to check what they eat and drink. Hormonal system too may undergo some problems later in their life.

Virgo Woman Money and Career

The zodiacal sign of Virgo relates to the abundance side of life rather than the short side of it. It also relates to the plenty side of life, meaning this sign associates itself with the harvest and crops. A typical Virgo girl may always think about her life, progress, jobs, vocation and money. In the end, she will reach her self-sustaining phase in the life by attaining all the cherished the financial goals. However, a Virgo girl must try to streamline her mind and intellect to derive peace and prosperity in the life. A Virgo woman can be a very good manager and a financial expert.

Virgo Woman in Love

A Virgo woman could be very choosy when it comes to picking up the life partner. She may like a man who is thinking and who has a very solid plan for the life and future. She may also like a person who knows how to survive the world. Women born under this sign do not like tactless and lazy men who do not know how to lead a prosperous life. They may not like people who do not have any plan for financial future. All Virgo women are faithful to their married life. They could be emotionally very stable and help the cause of the family. They could also be great friends to everyone including their friends and colleagues. Scorpio, Cancer, Capricorn and Taurus can relate very well with Virgo while Sagittarius and Pisces can be very difficult to mingle with, as Gemini and other Virgo women do, at times.

Virgo Famous Woman
