DID YOU KNOW THAT: The Position You Sleep in With Your Partner Shows The Strength Of The Relationship?

Posted on 16 Apr 2014 at 8:36pm

The researchers are back and this time they say the position of your sleep at night with your partner can be used to measure the strength of your relationship…Quite interesting…

The wider the distance (sleeping gap), the weaker the relationship and the closer or touchy couples are in bed when sleeping, the stronger the relationship.

My question is; what about those who sleep in different rooms or countries…LOL

According to MailOnline;

Are you someone who likes to cuddle up against your partner at night? Or do you tend to wake on the other side of the bed, facing the wall?

New research shows that the position in which we sleep is highly revealing about the strength of our relationships.

The key is the distance between couples, according to a study of 1,100 people.

Partners who sleep less than an inch apart are far more likely to be happy together than those maintaining a gap wider than 30 inches, the researchers found. (more…)

DID YOU KNOW THAT: Couples Are More Likely to Argue When Hungry?

Posted on 15 Apr 2014 at 12:45pm

 

Now I understand why my boyfriend always fights me when he is hungry and the moment he is full, he will run to watch football or some damn kung-fu movie as if I do not exist. I only get attention (bad one) when he is hungry…

According to a new study, hungry people are more likely to lose their temper with their husband or wife. And that when when we haven’t eaten enough, our brain lacks the energy needed to exercise self-control, and so we are more likely to lash out. (more…)

Is It Wrong for Gospel Musicians to Employ Negative Publicity Stunts/Gimmicks?

Posted on 11 Apr 2014 at 3:38pm

 

Negative publicity which is a employed to obtain attention by most artistes in the secular world of entertainment is creeping slowly into the gospel music industry in Ghana.

First, there’s no rule as to which form publicity should take. However, in whatever form it takes, it can assume one of two forms, thus, negative or positive. Though datable, from showbiz perspective, positive publicity is the traditional way of informing or getting the fans attention to an artiste’s works through; radios, prints, posters, televisions, websites and now social media.

Negative publicity on the other hand, is a form of attracting the audience attention and sentiments to an artiste’s work but as the name suggests, with a negative tone. For about 5 years now, negative publicity seems to be creeping into our gospel music industry.

For instance, in 2011, gospel musician Philipa Baafi who had bore triplets was reported to have lost her three children. The story came with mixed feelings of dubiety. I recall all attempts by then entertainment presenter, Agyemang Prempeh, of Channel R’s ‘205 Total Entertainment,’ to get Philipa Baafi to either confirm or deny the story proved otiose.

Later, the ostensible picture of the story was undraped and what was uncovered was that, she was coming out with a new album. As to whether Philipa Baafi’s three babies died or not, the negative publicity got her fans attention, favour and ushered her then album into the market.

In 2012, another gospel musician whose story had a negative publicity tone is Celestine Donkor. On various websites, social networks and print media was a story of her with pictures of two female prison wardens – they handcuffed her. (more…)

67th Cannes Film Festival: Party Girl, a First Film to Open Un Certain Regard

Posted on 10 Apr 2014 at 6:18pm

 

PARTY GIRL, a first film written and directed by Marie Amachoukeli, Claire Burger and Samuel Theis, has been chosen to open the Official Selection of Un Certain Regard.  It follows The Bling Ring by the American, Sofia Coppola, which was presented in 2013.

Produced by Elzévir Films and distributed by Pyramide Films, Party Girl shows the life of Angélique, a 60 year-old night club hostess who still loves men and enjoys partying, but now as the senior member on staff, feels she has reached the end of the line. On an impulse, she agrees to marry her regular client, Michel. The film is a portrait of a free woman who has chosen to live on the margins of conventional society, and delves deep into a France that is often underrepresented. With total realism, the lead role is played by the real-life Angélique.

The three co-directors met at Fémis, where they studied screenwriting and editing and began their collaboration. They produced short films that amassed awards at several festivals: Forbach (Cinéfondation Second Prize, Festival de Cannes 2008 and Grand Prix at the 2009 Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival),  C’est gratuit pour les filles (Semaine de la Critique 2009 – César Award for Best Short Film, 2010), and Demolition Party (2013).

With its mission to discover new talents, Un Certain Regard will provide excellent exposure for a collective first work that is innovative both in its form and its subject. The choice reflects the wish of Pablo Trapero, President of the Jury for Un Certain Regard 2014, “to present a passionate selection of established masters, young talents and new forms of cinema.” (more…)

Actress Baby Blanche Says She Does Not Normally Wear PANTIES…Seriously?

Posted on 10 Apr 2014 at 6:11pm

I am not sure if you still remember actress-Baby Blanche since she really does not have any GREAT movie to her name. However, she is the actress who once claimed movie Director-Socrate Sarfo shaved her down there hair on a movie set…

Baby Blanche who is looking to make a return back to movies is talking—and she is pouring out some tackiness, saying, she does not normally wear panties, blah blah!

The actress who spoke to Graphic Showbiz said;

“I love all kinds of lingerie that make a woman feminine because I’m a woman, but I hardly wear panties. This is not because I don’t want to wear them but because the clothes I love to wear wouldn’t permit me to,”

Explaining why she does so, she said;

“I try as much as possible to act as a lady and not to let my  panty lines show just because I like to wear dresses that hug my figure. So if I wear clothes and the outline of my panty is glaring like that I don’t like it. Being a lady is not only about wearing make-up and Brazilian hair but also comprises the propriety of whatever you’re wearing”. (more…)
