Why does Bad News travel faster than Good News??

Humans seem to be desperate for bad sensations, because there is more to gossip about and more interesting than good news and people are ghoulish.

People like to hear bad things that happens to other people so they can feel better about them self's....Gleeful Ghouls who thrive on other people's pain.

Even group prayer can easily turn into gossip. Bad news is like hell fire, and what better instrument is there than the unchain-able muscle we know as the tongue. No wonder that The Bible admonishes us to set a guard upon our mouths!

Good news trails behind in a negative world - but, to a group of folk who are in Christ truly and fully, they only sojourn here in this world and their citizenship is elsewhere with God - this group thrive on the Good News (Gospel)

Most people sure do love a juicy tidbit of gossip! we're quicker to pass on bad news, dirt, rumor, scandal etc..........we're all guilty!

Soaking your nails in lemon juice can whiten them. You can pour lemon juice in a small dish, or just apply lemons to your fingers. You can also use a paste made from baking soda and lemon juice,whitening toothpaste or white vinegar to get the same results.Allow the lemon juice to soak into your nails for 5 minutes. After that, wash hands and apply a hand lotion.

Make a nail care regimen and try to give your nails some rest by limiting the use of nail polish.

Impact of social networking media and cautions

I must confess I'm fb ''addict'' or rather say ''zombie'',I usually utilize most of my time when I'm at work or home using facebook and twitter to keep up with friends-perusing and reading new posts,chatting or going through friends' profiles to see new photos and stuff. I tried deactivating my account several times but like I said 'I'm fb addict' every time I end up reactivating it after 2-3 days.The negative use of the social media has impacted negatively on many things in my life.... I had to postpone my studies as I've missed so many classes during the second semester, I missed out on a lot of interesting information with all of the skipping I did,my performance@work drops big time,I don't sleep very well or very much,I've no time for family,friends or social activities.

Social media can be useful tools only if used more positively such as in raising awareness, Education,forums,job-hunting,researches or in business cases,and you can only spare some few minutes especially during the weekend to connect with friends across the entire globe! and others who work, study and live around you.

There aren't many situations in life where you get to start all over again,You can't start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading your last one.I now know my limits and can't wait to start my life all over again. ,Oh yeah! wish me luck....

Lady Gaga tweets undressed photo of herself?

She recently caused a stir when she unveiled her new perfume ad, starring herself, naked, with only 'tiny men' crawling over her to protect her modesty.But it appears Lady Gaga hasn't tired of baring flesh for her fans.

The 26-year-old tweeted a snap of herself apparently almost fully undressed, sitting in an armchair, hugging her legs to her chest.

At the risk of looking too closely, Gaga appears to be wearing a deceptively flesh-coloured thong.Umhh! I thought she didn't wear anything.....BUT

I still don't understand her penchant for stepping out in little more than underwear,she should cover her body a bit.

Most wanted: Killer shoes

Every girl needs a pair of black pumps,but we already have our black pumps, be it in pointed toe, almond toe, round toe, open-toe, whatever you do have, black suede, satin, matte leather and patent. Those lucky ones might have everything in multiples too. So here is new perspective towards shoes. Every girl needs a pair of killer shoes too. For special occasions, whenever we need a mood-booster, for the broken hearted. It's fun, and I know that girls and shoes have some sort of emotional bonding whatsoever. So this could work, for much cheaper than seeing a professional.

First pair is Red sole...Christian Louboutin Lady Max 100 Spike-Embellished Metallic Leather Sandals. Evocatively adorned with sharp spikes. Metallic calfskin strappy sandal with spike and pave crystal adornments. Adjustable buckles at instep and ankle-wrap, heel measures approximately 100mm.

The second pair, is no other than the quirky, fantastical shoes from Prada Spring 2012. Apparently they call them Jewel-Toe Flame Sandals. Start looking at the intricate rose ornament surrounded by pink jewels at open toe, then the cutout vamp detail and flame design on elasticized slingback strap. And finally, the very rare rocket booster detail at back heel you won't be able to see in any other shoe design, I would say.

Broken heart:Robert Pattinson moves out of home he shared with Kristen Stewart!

Rob has reportedly moved out of the home he shared with Kristen Stewart clearly unable to deal with the embarrassment of being cheated on.

The “devastated” Twilight star has packed up his stuff and left the Los Angeles home he shared with Kristen after her admission she had an affair with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, 41.

A source close to the situation “Rob is not taking Kristen’s calls and he isn’t much of a texter as they don’t text each other. Not only has he left the house they share but he is leaving the situation all together cold turkey to have time to himself and deal with it on his own terms. He currently wants to be as far from Kristen symbolically and physically right now while he deals with what has happened.”

Kristen’s groveling apology and acclamations about how much she loves her boyfriend of four years have fallen on deaf ears and Robert is not going to forgive her.

Robert, 26, is reportedly hiding away and is not in contact with Kristen, 22, because he is so “heartbroken and angry.”

It has reported that,Kristen is writing a letter of apology to Sanders’ wife Liberty Ross to beg for forgiveness for having illicit liaisons with her husband with whom she has two children.

“Kristen didn’t feel it was appropriate to issue a public apology once the story of her affair with Rupert broke,” The source reported

She is a very pretty girl and when you work that closely with someone for so long, sometimes things happen.

How to mend a broken heart??: Rob probably doesn't even want the house. too many memories. it sucks too....Does it mean its over? moved out of Kristen's life too?

Life goes on; Kristen needs to move out and move on with her life, I feel sorry for Kristen,She's in hot soup but I hope she soon gets through it .smh!

Signs you're more than friends

Look for Signals
After you’ve realized that you might be more than friends, the next step is to figure out if this feeling is reciprocated. If you are observant, you may pick up on some unintentional signals that may indicate your friend feels the same way and may be open to dating.

Think about how your friend talks about potential romantic partners: Does he refuse to talk about it with you, or is he vague? Conversely, does he talk about women he might date more than he did at the beginning of your friendship? Some people will either avoid the subject or overcompensate if they realize they have romantic feelings for a friend and they aren’t sure how to proceed.

Be on the lookout for how often your friend asks you about your love life. If they ask you lots of questions and seem overly curious, this may be a sign that your friend might think of you as more than friend. Also, if your friend asks you what you’re attracted to or wants to know about each and every relationship you’ve had, this could also be a major sign they like you.

How does your friend act when you are dating anyone else? Are they jealous? Do they think that no one is good enough for you? After all, if they want to be with you, it makes sense they’d see red when thinking or talking about someone you’re dating.

Kristen Stewart reportedly cheats on Robert Pattinson with Snow White Director

Kristen Stewart just issued a shockingly desperate plea for forgiveness ... after cheating on Rob Pattinson with the 41-year-old married director of "Snow White and the Huntsman." Rupert Sanders. 

Sanders is married to model/actress, Liberty Ross, who also appeared in Snow White as the mother of Stewart’s character and they have two children.

Seems these allegations are true because the actress and director have both released statements apologizing to loved ones.

Kristen publicly confessed to the affair moments ago, saying, "I'm deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I've caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected."

Sanders has two children with his wife. So far, no word from Rob.
