6 Ways to have more confident body language

Your body language says a lot about you to others. Follow these tips to have more confident body language in the dating scene.
Avoid shaking your leg, tapping your fingers, twirling your hair or other fidgety movements. Fidgeting makes you look nervous.

Open up and you'll be more approachable and look less guarded.

If you stand or sit tall, you'll look confident even when you aren't. When you sit up straight, don't do it in tense, rigid manner, however.

Walking fast, talking fast and moving fast makes you look and feel stressed. Slow down and relax. Walking slower makes you look more confident and assured of yourself.

Smile and laugh, but don't always try to be funny. Lighten up and allow yourself to laugh, but don't try to be a comedian. People who are always telling jokes (especially self-deprecating jokes) and then laugh at themselves look needy.

Having no eye contact makes you look nervous or scared. However, too much eye contact is creepy. Connect with someone with eye contact when you are having a conversation, just don't stare constantly without occasionally looking away from their eyes.

Making your home safe for your baby

Parents worry endlessly about how to protect their children from child abuse or abduction, but many manage to overlook one of the biggest threats to their children's safety and well being — their own home.

According to a 2006 report by Safe Kids Canada, young children, from birth to age five, are especially vulnerable to injuries in the home. More than 20,000 children each year are seen in emergency departments across Canada. That means that approximately 60 young children every day suffer injuries in the home serious enough to be taken to hospital. In Canada, the injury risk for young children peaks between their first and second birthday. Falls account for more than half of all injuries, while the highest number of deaths are due to fire.

So don't wait until disaster strikes before you think about aspects of safety for the new arrival in your home. With careful planning and a little equipment, you'll be prepared when your baby is ready to explore.

Despite the hundreds of childproofing gadgets on the market, the most important safety device is always going to be your supervision. No matter how well equipped you are, you still need to keep a constant lookout for possible dangers.

If in doubt, always take your baby with you when you go to answer the door or telephone.
General safety
Certain safety actions can be applied to every room. These are some of the approaches you can take:

• Put safety covers in all unused electrical outlets. Keep switched plugs in the off position.

• Attach cushioned corner-and-edge protectors to the sharp corners of coffee tables and desks.

• Consider the potential hazard of anything you drop into the bin. If you're using it to discard batteries, paper clips, plastic bags, or other dangerous items, place it out of reach, or in a cupboard which your child cannot open.

• Keep pens, scissors, letter openers, staplers, paper clips, and other sharp instruments in locked drawers.

• Domestic fires pose one of the greatest risks to children. Children playing with matches and lighters frequently start house fires. If you have a fireplace, keep a fire extinguisher nearby, and have it serviced or checked according to the manufacturer's instructions. Don't put objects above the fireplace which might attract your child to climb up to reach them. Keep matches and lighters out of sight and reach of children. Extinguish and dispose of cigarettes properly. Have an escape route planned, and practice it, in case of fire.

Fit smoke alarms which comply with all local fire regulations and check them regularly. Install smoke detectors in every bedroom and one near the kitchen. Check them monthly to be sure they're working, and change the batteries annually. A working smoke detector can cut the chances of dying in a fire by 50 per cent.

• Try to avoid curtains and blinds with cords — dangling cords could result in strangulation. If you do have them, tie cords high up, out of your child's reach.

• Place colourful stickers on large areas of glass, such as sliding glass doors, to prevent them from becoming “invisible.” Sash windows should always be opened from the top and fitted with locks to prevent small children from opening them from the bottom. Fix low windows so that they don't open more than five inches. Keep furniture and other potential climbing structures away from windows.

• Put non-slip pads under rugs and mats which don't already have non-slip backs.

• Use safety gates and door gates. On stairs, fit a safety gate at the top and another three steps from the bottom. This will stop your infant or toddler from climbing all the way to the top only to discover that she can't reverse the process. But remember that child safety is ongoing. The gate you put at the top of the stairs for your one-year-old may become her favourite climbing structure when she's two.

• Never leave things lying on the stairs which could cause someone to trip up. Stairs should be carefully maintained — damaged or worn carpet should be repaired or removed. Make sure balustrades are strong and do not have any footholds for climbing. Stairs should always be well lit. Every year, hundreds of children are treated in emergency departments for fall-related injuries. Once your baby starts crawling, you may also need a safety gate to keep her out of rooms which are off-limits.

• Hide lamp and appliance cords behind heavy furniture or conceal them with a special “flex holder” device. Tall lamps might topple over if your baby pulls on them, so anchor them safely behind furniture.

• Be aware of things that pinch fingers, like hinges, ironing boards and deck chairs. You might consider buying hinge protectors.

• Keep first-aid supplies in a locked cupboard, out of reach, and make sure babysitters and others know where to find the supplies in your home and how to respond in an emergency. Make sure you have poison-proofed your home to protect your children from hazardous substances.

• The incidence of burns and scalds in young children is much higher than that of older children and adults. Most scalds are caused by hot drinks being spilled. Remember that they are still hot enough to scald a child 15 minutes after being made. And never ever pass a hot drink to a breastfeeding mom — even a tiny drop of the hot liquid could scald both baby and mother.

9 Things You Need to Do to Your Skin Now

The other night as I was washing my face and getting ready for bed, I looked at myself in the mirror and was suddenly horrified over how old and haggard my face looks. For the first time in a long time, my complexion is dull and blah. I'm starting to get a little bit of loose skin around my eyes. And I just don't look, well — in my 20s anymore.

And even though I know very well that the reason I don't look like I'm in my 20s is because I'm 35, I still don't like the idea of looking 35, you know?

What's really weird is that as early as two years ago, I really could've passed for a woman under 30 (or at least I thought so).

And based on how much rougher my appearance has gotten over the time span of a couple years, I think I know what my problem is. I stopped being diligent with my skin care routine.

You see, back in the day, I did the whole spa party biz thing. I was really “in the know” when it came to how to successfully take care of my skin so I don't wind up looking like the inside of an old catcher's mitt in my elder years. And when I stuck to a strict beauty routine, my skin literally glowed. It looked healthy, fresh, and youthful.

And I never should've slacked on it. Ever. And as of now, I'm starting to back up again and making sure I take good care of my skin in the hopes that I'll get the glow back and won't regret taking a couple years off.

Trust me, if you haven't gotten into a good skin care regime yet, you need to do it now. Like RIGHT now.

Here are nine things you need to start doing right away so your skin will thank you later.

Pick a skin care line — And stick with it when you do. Each line's products are made to work together, so it's a good idea to stick with a brand instead of mixing and matching too much. I've always gotten better results when I stay with one line.
Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate — If you aren't using a mild scrub once or twice a week, then you have dead skin cells building up a layer of ick on your face. The longer you go without exfoliating, the more the layer grows. Ew. And at least once a month, use a deeper exfoliate, like microdermabrasion, to reveal fresh, new skin cells.
Use toner — Toner does more than get rid of excess dirt and makeup your cleanser left behind. It also balances out the pH level of your skin, which makes it easier to absorb moisturizers, anti-aging creams, and the like.
Moisturize twice a day — OMG. If you are washing your face and not applying moisturizer afterwards, you're basically asking for your skin to dry up like a raisin. Even if you don't think you need it, you do. And the older you get, the more you need.
Invest in a good eye cream — Even if you aren't keen on using other anti-aging products, get yourself an eye cream and apply it every night before bed religiously. The skin around your eyes is the first place you show signs of aging, and it needs moisture and regeneration just as much as the rest of your face, if not more.
Steam your face regularly — Whether you use an actual steamer or just run the hot shower in your bathroom, steaming opens up your pores so toxins and impurities can be released.
Clean up your diet — Believe it or not, simply choosing whole, healthy foods can have an impact on your skin's radiance. You can never eat too many fruits and veggies!
Up your vitamin intake — Something as simple as taking vitamins C and E supplements can have just as big a benefit on your skin outside as they do for your whole body inside.
Get out of the house or office — Oxygen is essential to keeping your skin looking beautiful, and without enough of it, skin cells start to die. It can be so tough, especially in the winter months, to get outside, but by venturing out even for 20 minutes a few times a week, you'll notice a difference in the mirror.

4 Home Made Apple Masks

You know how they say: “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” Apples are the perfect fruits for eating healthy meals in the evening or keeping a diet. But have you ever thought nourishing your skin with apples? Apples have many vitamins, such as A, B1, B2 and C which can be used in nourishing your skin after sun exposure or in keeping the wrinkles and acne away. Interested?
Here are five home made masks using apples. Let you skin enjoy some apples and feel young again.

Toning mask for aging skin
You hate your new wrinkles and don’t know how to make your skin look and feel young again? Just use apples. It’s very simple. Here’s the secret: peel two apples, put them in the blender and afterwards mix them with a tablespoon of honey. Apply the mixture on your face and neck, and then let it stand for 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water and after that apply a moisturizer.
Apple mask for acne
This mask is very easy to prepare. You will need one tablespoon of honey, half an apple in blender and a tablespoon of clay (any type). Apply the mask on face with delicate movements, massaging gently for 5 minutes to stimulate skin circulation and absorption of the ingredients. You can use this mask both in the mornings and in the evenings.
Apple mask for skin glow
Mix the grated apple and mix it very well with one egg white. Apply the mask in a uniform layer on the face and let it act for 10 minutes. The final step is to rinse with warm water. Your skin will glow again.
Apple mask with yogurt
Mix the grated apple and mix it with 2-3 tablespoons of yogurt with as little fat as possible, a tablespoon of honey and a teaspoon of starch for cooking. Leave it on for 20 minutes and then rinse with warm water. This mask speeds up the natural production of collagen in the skin, contributing to the healing of old scars (acne, measles and so on).

How to Drink Water for Naturally Healthy Skin

You might have known that our human body is made up of 70 percent water. But do you know? Not only does water maintains the normal operation of our body, but it also flushes it from our skin. For naturally healthy skin, here is how you can drink water in the most proper way.

1. You may say you drink coffee, tea, soft drinks and juices each day. And surely, they can be counted into your daily water intake but always remember that pure water is the best for the health of our bodies and skin. Make sure you drink at least 4 to 5 glasses of pure water each day.

2. A best thing to do: once you get up in the morning, or before you go to bed each night, drink a glass of water.

3. Before eating, drink a glass of water to help fill you up so you can eat less. This is super benifitial if you are on a diet to loose weight.

4. When you exercise, make sure you drink plenty of water, which replenishes the water you loose through sweating.

5. At any time of the day, drink water before you feel thirsty. Once you are feeling the signs of thirst, you are already dehydrated.

Australian central bank computers targeted by hackers

Australia's central bank has confirmed that it has been targeted by hackers.

The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) said it had “on occasion been the target of cyber attacks”, following a report in an Australian newspaper.

The report documented hacking incidents dating back to 2011, including malware embedded in emails.

The bank said no data had been lost and its systems had not been corrupted, but did not comment on reports the attacks originated in China.

China has frequently been blamed for similar cyber attacks, targeting economic or business information.

In a statement the RBA said: “The bank has comprehensive security arrangements in place which have isolated these attacks and ensured that viruses have not been spread across the Bank's network or systems.

“At no point have these attacks caused the Bank's data or information to be lost or its systems to be corrupted.”

Malware used
According to an investigation by the Australian Financial Review, one of the attacks involved an email entitled “Strategic Planning FY2012″ which was sent to and opened by several members of staff.

It contained a malware application, which had managed to bypass existing security controls, but was not able to spread through the computer system.

Another targeted information relating to the G20 meetings.

The bank did not comment on reports that the malware came from China.

The Chinese government has repeatedly denied that it is behind cyber attacks, which security experts say target sensitive governmental and commercial information.

Motorola Razr HD review ( price , specification ,release date , features , problems, advantages, disadvantages)

Motorola's Razr HD smartphone has been out in the US for a few months and now it's arrived in the UK. Here's our Motorola Razr HD hands-on review.

Motorola's Razr HD smartphone has been out in the US for a few months and now it's arrived in the UK. Here's our Motorola Razr HD hands-on review.

We spent some time with the Razr HD (XT925) at this year's Mobile World Congress where we didn't exactly have to fight crowds to see the handset like the other vendors' stands at the show. See also: Group test: What's the best Android smartphone?

Like other recent Razr devices, Motorola has opted for something of an alternative design. The Razr HD looks like a lot of smartphones from the front with a glossy black finish but has a fascinating back.

Once again Motorola has used Kevlar as a material and this time covers the entirety of the handset's back and wraps right round to the aluminium which runs around the edge. In our opinion, it simply looks awesome and gives the premium feel you want from a smartphone.

Sadly, the Kevlar rear cover doesn't make the Motorola Razr HD bullet proof. However, the combination of it along with the alumium frame and Gorilla Glass makes the Razd HD a hardy handset. You certainly won't need to run out to buy a case or a cover for it.

In the UK, the Razr HD ships with Androud 4.1 Jelly Bean. Being owned by Google, the Motorola interface is largely vanilla Android but has its own style.

With a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 4.7in HD screen and an 8Mp rear camera, the Razr HD is Motorola's flagship smartphone. However, this isn't going to compete with the flagship devices of rival vendors very well.

Don't get us wrong, the Razr HD is a lovely phone. The screen looks fantastic with a 720×1280 resolution, even under the bright MWC lights, and the performance seemed decent enough to us. The issue is that there are more exciting smartphones on the market already and more are on the way.

If Motorola had launched the Razr HD in the UK last year then we would have been singing its praises. But, as it stands, it has to compete, in the Android market only, the Sony Xperia Z, HTC One and incoming Samsung Galaxy S4.

You might be thinking the Razr HD is likely to be cheaper than these rival devices, and it is. Clove and Expansys have the device for around £400 SIM-free which is a saving of at least £100. However, the Google Nexus 4 costs just £239 so the Razr HD sits in a strange a lonely position in the market.

The Razr HD does have 4G LTE built-in which is an advance over the Nexus 4, certainly. But consider that the HTC One SV costs about £250 and the Motorola handset looks less appealing.

If the Razr HD had a huge 3300mAh battery like the Razr Maxx, it would be a great reason to choose it, but it doesn't. It has a reasonable 2500mAh battery which coupled with a dual-core processor could produce a good battery life but it's no major selling point.

It's truly a shame but it's a case of Motorola bringing the Razr HD across the Atlantic too late for it to be a major contender. Every way you look at the smartphone, there is a better rival to be had for both more and less money.

Tips for Spring Cleaning with lower costs

Spring is just around the corner — and so is the cleaning associated with it. This year, rather than merely dusting and organizing your possessions, take stock of what you have and consider selling what you don’t need.

“I would estimate people have between $3,000 and $5,000 worth of stuff in their house that they’re not using,” said Gail McMeekin, author of “The Power of Positive Choices: Adding and Subtracting Your Way to a Great Life.”

The easiest way to start is by breaking down what can be sold in four major rooms — the living room, the kitchen, the bedroom and the attic or garage.

Living Room

Many of us inherit furniture from our parents or grandparents, and it clutters our living spaces. “We don’t get rid of such items because we feel ashamed,” says Debbie Mandel, stress-management specialist and author of ” Product Details

Addicted to Stress: A Woman's 7 Step Program to Reclaim Joy and Spontaneity in Life.” She recommends taking a picture of heirlooms before you sell them, so you keep the memory without having the furniture crowd your house.

When selling furniture, Julie Kearns, founder of Junket: Tossed & Found, a vintage resale shop, recommends checking the item's bottom and back for brand or manufacturers' markings. Once you have the name, she says, research how much the pieces may be worth on eBay and Craigslist. “It helps to figure out if there's already a market for the item,” she says.

Unless you already have an established reputation, however, Kearns suggests “using Yelp.com to identify business owners with a positive reputation in the marketplace” and to consider having a consignment or another shop sell the items for you.

Other items that Kearns suggests might be worth money include lampshades, especially ones that are from the 1970s or earlier, and mantel clocks.Condition and design are big factors here. A clean shade, preferably with a makers' mark, in excellent condition (without smoke/staining/etc.) can fetch $25-30 (more, if it's extra funky or space age), Kearns says.

Mandel adds that many people keep books even when they never intend to read them again. She suggests bundling them and selling them in bulk to a library or an online resale site.


Many of us have appliances that we bought with the best intentions — the massive juicer, the still-in-the-box bread maker — but never use. “Start by getting rid of old appliances that just take up space,” says McMeekin.

Appliances will fetch some decent cash, especially if they're in mint condition. But the objects that will sell for the most money are old dishes and glassware, especially from the 1930s or 1940s.

Silver-plate silverware also can be sold for surprisingly high prices. “Check the maker’s name on the back,” says Kearns. The name will be useful for determining whether or not there's already a market for the item. Once you have it, Kearns recommends doing an advanced search on eBay, and looking at the completed listings — items already sold — so that you can competitively price your own items.

One great site for buying and reselling china is Replacements LTD, which specializes in dinnerware, glassware, collectibles, and china and crystal.


The most obvious item to sell in bedrooms is old clothing and jewelry, which can be easily offloaded at consignment shops. Kearns recommends bundling clothing together — even if it is ripped or has stains — and selling it in bulk on eBay. “As long as you’re clear on the condition and quality, people will buy it,” she says. This works especially well with baby clothing, which children grow out of quickly.

Old clothes and jewelry that aren't name brands? The older, the better. A high quality 60s era dress without a pedigree could earn a seller $15-30 or more. Day dresses from the 1940s are easily worth $50, if they're in great shape. Eighties clothing can sell nicely, but must be a common size and very reminiscent of the decade: $5-15 per piece is typical, though some will fetch far more, Kearns says.

Other items that Kearns says sell well are vintage linens — Bates and Chanel are two brands that fetch especially high prices — as well as old sewing supplies, which often are made in colors or materials that have been discontinued.

The real money item in the bedroom, however, is the alarm clock. “Look for items from the 1950s, ‘60s or ‘70s with brand names like Westclox, General Electric, Braun and Bulova,” suggests Linda Abrams, author of “Collecting Under the Radar: Tomorrow's Antiques,” and an expert in American collectibles. “Colorful cases with crazy dials or fun Disney figures are especially valuable.”

Abrams says that clocks with space-age themes can fetch up to $100; alarm clocks with unusual alarms from the ‘50s can bring in up to $150; and cartoon-decorated alarm clocks up to $30.

Attic & Garage

Abrams says vintage pieces can fetch prices of $200 and up. She suggests looking for D. E. McNicol thick plates that have nursery rhymes, animal images and baby bunting themes; and Cocksville's ceramic Raggedy Ann and Andy tableware.

Less valuable items include dishware with characters from Curious George, Sesame Street and Mickey Mouse. But even if the items only bring in $15, the cash you will make from them is better than nothing.

Other items you might find in the attic include excess fabric from curtains and upholstery that might be highly valued for their rarity. Kearns also suggests looking for vintage Samsonite luggage that is covered either in burlap or leather; many design-savvy buyers are looking for such items to convert into furniture or even pet beds.

Vintage luggage (think 1950s or earlier) if it's high quality, good condition with no smells, will bring $20-30, Kearns says.

In the garage, the most valuable objects are tools, which are fast becoming collectibles. Abrams recommends looking for names of quality manufacturers such as Stanley, which is a highly respected brand that has been making tools since the 1850s.

Other items to look for include Disston saws, Underhill or T.H. Witherby edge tools, Davis or Stratton Bros. levels, Norris planes, Coes wrenches, Cheney hammers and Collins axes. “Expect to sell a tool for between $50 and $500 if it's rust-free and made with fine materials like ebony or boxwood,” Abrams said.

U.S. and China reach to a deal for new sanctions on North Korea

(UPI) — The United States and China have a deal for new sanctions on North Korea, paving the way for a new U.N. resolution, U.N. diplomats told The Wall Street Journal.

Under the deal, the new resolution to be introduced Tuesday in the U.N. Security Council would include both the existing as well as new ones against North Korea over its Feb. 12 nuclear test, which was the isolated Communist country's third such test since 2006.

A U.N. diplomat told the Journal China, North Korea's closest ally, has already voted for three sets of sanctions against its neighbor for its previous nuclear tests and ballistic missile launches in violation of Security Council resolutions.

“There is a meeting tomorrow and we will look at a text that the U.S. and China will present together,” a Security Council diplomat told the Journal. “They have reached a deal.”

The existing sanctions against North Korea were tightened in January after Pyongyang conducted its December long-range rocket launch, seen by the international community as a cover to test its long-range ballistic missile capability.

Under the new deal, a diplomat told the Journal the Security Council should adopt the new sanctions by the end of the week.

Currently, North Korea is banned from conducting all ballistic missile and nuclear tests and import and export of nuclear and ballistic missile-related material. The council also imposed an embargo on all arms imports and exports other than small arms as well as financial and travel sanctions on a number of individuals and North Korean companies.

The Security Council also has put in place a regime requiring all nations to inspect goods entering and leaving North Korean ports for contraband.

The Journal quoted diplomats that China would not agree to an oil embargo because of concerns about the North Korean economy collapsing which in turn would lead the massive inflow of refugees into China.

The Journal said it wasn't clear what the new sanctions would be besides adding new companies and individuals to the financial and travel-ban list.

New Study Says : 100 Million Sharks Killed Annually

he most accurate assessment to date of the impact of commercial fishing on sharks suggests around 100 million are being killed each year.

The researchers say that this rate of exploitation is far too high, especially for a species which reproduces later in life.

The major factor driving the trade is the ongoing demand for shark fins for soup in Chinese communities.

The report has been published in the Journal Marine Policy.

Researchers admit that establishing the true level of global shark fishing is extremely difficult, as the quality of the data is poor. Many sharks that are caught have their fins removed at sea with the body dumped overboard. These fish are often not included in official reports.

Fin margin
However, the scientists estimate a mortality range of between 63 and 273 million sharks in 2010.

“There is a very large range and that speaks to the quality of data, which is not great,” said Dr Demian Chapman from Stony Brook University in New York, US.

“Certainly 100 million is the median estimate and that's the best estimate there is,” he added.

While the number of sharks being caught has not changed substantially between 2000 and 2010, the authors of the research argue that the commercial fishing fleets are simply changing location and the shark species they target in order to keep up with demand. The fear is that eventually these shark species will crash.

Fuelling the concern is the fact that many of the species that are most threatened are very slow to reproduce.

“A lot of the sharks that are prized in the trade take more than a decade to reach maturity,” said Dr Chapman.

“There is a really razor-thin level of mortality that sharks can experience before their population trajectory becomes negative – that is really what's been happening.

“They are not reproducing fast enough to keep up with the rate we are pulling them out of the ocean,” he added.

The biggest driver for shark fishing has been the demand for shark fin soup, a product that is seen as a luxury item among Chinese communities.

While fins are still being cut off sharks at sea, several countries including Canada, the US and the European Union have tried to restrict this by law.

But this has not had the desired effect, Dr Chapman explained.

“The problem is that the fins are so valuable that now people are not 'finning' the sharks at sea – they're keeping the whole thing. But it is still dead; the finning bans have not stopped the root problem.”

On Sunday, negotiators from 178 countries will gather in Bangkok for the meeting of the Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species (Cites). There are proposals to regulate the trade in five of the most threatened species of shark.

At a previous meeting in 2010, similar restrictions fell just short of the required-two thirds majority. This time, campaigners say they have broad support among developed and developing countries and are optimistic they will be able to muster the required votes.

Justin Bieber Angers many of Fans After Arriving Two Hours Late to London Concert

Fashionably late? Justin Bieber angered many of his fans after he showed up two hours late to his concert at London's O2 Arena on Monday, March 4. The 19-year-old singer was scheduled to perform at 8:30 p.m. with doors opening at 6:30 p.m., but didn't arrive until 10:38 p.m., a concertgoer tells Us Weekly.

When Bieber finally did arrive, many fans booed the singer. The insider tells Us that Bieber's young fans were falling asleep before he finally arrived, and even began crying when they had to leave the show after only a few songs. Many had to attend school the next morning and catch last trains home from the show.

To compensate for his tardiness, the concertgoer tells Us that the “Boyfriend” singer had to majorly cut his set list.

“Lots of unhappy parents on a school night, but feel sorry for little kids crying because they missed half concert,” one fan tweeted. “Was good though.”

But some Beliebers didn't mind the long wait to see the heartthrob. “Omg! The concert was crazy!” another fan tweeted. “Had to wait a while but was totally worth it as I saw Justin Bieber finally!”

Alison Pill Calls off Engagement to Jay Baruchel

The wedding is off for good. After a two-year engagement, Alison Pill and Jay Baruchel have broken up. The Canadian stars have called off their engagement and gone their separate ways, Us Weekly confirms.
The This Is the End actor hinted about their split on Twitter Feb. 16. “Alone again, naturally. Heartbroken,” he wrote in a message that he later deleted. “I won't be on twitter for awhile gang. Getting dumped rules.”

Baruchel, 30, and Pill, 27, became engaged in December 2010 after meeting on the set of hockey flick Goon. The twosome had plans to wed in September 2012 in Quebec.
“We're getting married at an ice wine vineyard. Me and the groomsmen will all be wearing kilts!” the Tropic Thunder actor told Us in February 2012. “We'll be welcomed in by uilleann pipers. It will be a very small, 70 person wedding, just friends and family.”

But in an interview with Victoria's Times Colonist last month, Baruchel explained why the wedding never happened. “Unfortunately, we're two busy people who are intrinsically lazy,” he said. “So in our free time, the last thing we want to do is book flights and organize hotel rooms for people.” He added, “But it'll happen at some point.”

Or not at all, as it turns out. On Sunday, March 3, a solo Pill attended the 30th annual PaleyFest for The Newsroom at Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills. Smiling on the carpet, the HBO actress was missing one conspicuous accessory for her photo op: her engagement ring.
Why did the pair decide to split for good? A source tells Us that their long distance relationship became too difficult to manage.

“Working and living in Canada is something that [Baruchel] is very passionate about. He wanted her up there more often, but she really likes Newsroom and the opportunities that are there for her,” the insider explains. “They were doing the long distance [thing] a lot.”

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez breathing problems and suffers new infection

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is suffering from a new, severe respiratory infection following cancer surgery, the government has said.

Information Minister Ernesto Villegas said Mr Chavez's condition continued to be very delicate.

Mr Chavez, 58, returned to Venezuela last month after being treated for cancer in Cuba, but has not appeared in public since.

Many Venezuelans have been demanding full details about his health.

'Complementary treatments'
Mr Villegas read out the latest brief update on national television.

Speaking from the Caracas military hospital where Mr Chavez is being treated, Mr Villegas said: “Today there is a worsening of respiratory function.”

He said Mr Chavez was undergoing “intensive chemotherapy, as well as complementary treatments”.

“The commander-president remains clinging to Christ and to life, conscious of the difficulties that he is facing, and complying strictly with the programme designed by his medical team,” Mr Villegas said.

Mr Chavez, who has been in office for 14 years, is believed to have cancer in his pelvic area, but his exact illness has never been disclosed.

He announced in June 2011 that he had cancer and has undergone four operations since then, as well as chemotherapy and radiation therapy.

The president was re-elected for another six-year term in October 2012, but the Supreme Court ruled that his swearing-in on 10 January could be delayed because of his illness.

At the weekend, hundreds of Venezuelan students and opposition members marched in Caracas demanding full details about President Chavez's health.

He is said to be taking decisions about the country from the hospital bed but there have been mixed messages from officials on his condition.

Vice President Nicolas Maduro said on Saturday that Mr Chavez was still having chemotherapy.

On Thursday, Mr Maduro had gone on TV to say Mr Chavez was battling for his life.

All you need to know about Spain’s Tomato Fight Festival

 La Tomatina 2013 Is ......

La Tomatina is a food fight festival held on the last Wednesday of August each year in the town of Bunol near to Valencia in Spain. Thousands upon thousands of people make their way from all corners of the world to fight in this 'World's Biggest Food Fight' where more than one hundred metric tons of over-ripe tomatoes are thrown in the streets.

The week-long festival features music, parades, dancing, and fireworks. On the night before the tomato fight, participants of the festival compete in a paella cooking contest.

The Rules of La Tomatina

    Do not bring bottles or hard objects as they can cause accidents and hurt other participants
    Do not rip other people’s T-shirts
    You must squash the tomatoes before throwing them as this reduces the impact
    Ensure you keep a safe distance from the lorries
    As soon as you hear the second shot, you must stop throwing tomatoes

Useful Advice

    Wear closed shoes that you don’t mind throwing away afterwards. If you wear flip-flops, you may get hurt, or you could lose them easily during the battle
    Wear old clothes, or clothes that you aren’t planning to wear again. They will most likely end up damaged from being ripped or incredibly dirty
    You may find goggles useful. However, it is safer if you just ensure that you always have something clean to wipe your eyes with. The best thing is if you tuck your T-Shirt into your shorts to keep the bottom part of your T-shirt clean and dry
    If you are planning to take pictures, bring a waterproof camera!
    If you’re not from Buñol, and you want to stay overnight, don’t forget to look for and secure accommodation in advance
    Do not miss the Palojabón – a soap-covered pole with a Spanish ham at the top: whoever can climb the pole and get the ham can keep it!
    Stay safe and enjoy the festivities as much possible
