She has great boobs and I hate her

NINETY per cent of women check out their rivals' assets up to seven times daily and nearly half of them are jealous of those with big boobs.

This was shown in a survey on 3,000 women and 1,000 men conducted by cosmetic surgery giant Transform.

The result of this survey has revealed a number of eye-opening truths about British attitudes to breasts in the 21st Century, said UK's The Sun newspaper.

The survey also showed that 51% of the women were unhappy with their breasts, with 63 per cent of them wanting bigger boobs.

Meanwhile, four in 10 men admitted that they looked at women's breasts at least 10 times a day with 40% confessing to looking at a woman's chest before her face.

And almost half of the men surveyed agreed that their partner's breasts are beautiful.

Pat Dunion, a spokesman for Transform, told The Sun that the research was a real insight into the British attitude towards breasts.

"Our fascination with breasts, whether male or female, seems to be getting bigger each year so it's no surprise that so many women seek out the breasts they've always wanted."

It's Time For a Beer

Beer makes the bones stronger

Beer can help strengthen the bones and prevent fractures in old age, a new study has confirmed.

Beer is a significant source of silicon, which is a key ingredient of the diet that helps to improve bone mineral density.

The best beers for silicon are the pale malted ales and lagers.

Dark bitters and stouts contain lower levels because they are made with roasted barley, which has lower silicon content.

Wheat contains less silicon than barley, so wheat beers are poorer sources of silicon.

Previous studies have suggested that a regular pint or two may help to prevent the bone-thinning disease osteoporosis.

In the new study, researchers at the University of California studied 100 commercial beers and found their silicon content ranged from 6.4 milligrams per litre to 56.5 mg/l.

Paler beers have more silicon than darker ones because less heat is used in the malting process.

"Beer containing high levels of malted barley and hops are richest in silicon. It is the husk of the barley that is rich in this element."

"While most remains during brewing, significant quantities are none the less extracted into wort and survive into beer," the Independent quoted Charles Bamforth, who led the study, as saying.

The study has been published in the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture.

Women’s fantasies unveiled

Sorry guys. Most women do not have daily sex fantasies like you do. But when they do fantasise, they do not like to do it with their partners - reports top British women’s magazine, Health 24.

In its latest survey involving 11,181 respondents, Health 24 discovers that 72 per cent women fancy getting hot and heavy with famous men. (I’m talking to you Robert Pattinson, Johnny Depp, Will Smith, Takeshi Kaneshiro, John Abraham, Daniel Henney and Angkasawan Datuk Dr Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor Al-Masrie!).

Or just total, beautiful strangers.

That’s not all. Most women want to do it with their dreamboats in the open! Yes, we’re talking about public places like a recreational park here.

So what about bondage, threesomes, group sex and fetish sex, you ask? Well, only 21 per cent from the women surveyed say they get turned on by more adventurous sex games.

Oh, porno films only work on 74 per cent of women compared to 90 per cent of men polled during the survey.

And get this - unlike men, women are easily satisfied by just having sex fantasies, without actually getting physical.

The Best Kept Secret Of The Rich

You just know they had something that you didn’t besides money. You just knew it didn’t you? You knew they had a secret. If only you could get your hands on it.

Now it was about to be revealed to me. I’m listening on the edge of my chair as Jim Rohn was about to share the best kept secret.

He had discovered it and now he was going to reveal it.

Here is his discovery!

Rich people have about 24 hours in a day and poor people had 24 hours in a day. Both have equal time but it’s the outcome that is different.

So what made the difference? Time management.

I don’t like to use the word time management. You can only manage something you can control. You can’t control time. You can’t add more hours or control what’s going to happen. I like to use the term time maximizing.

Maximizing that 24 hours. Time is more valuable then money. It’s your most important asset. We all start the day with 24 hours. No more...No less.

It’s what we do with that 24 hours that will shape our lives. Once it’s gone, you can’t go back and get it. You can always get more money but never more time. There is no time bank to lend you time. You invest it, spend it or waste it.

The moment you begin to think of time as precious, a resource and that it has a price, the richer you’ll become.

Here are ten suggestions to help you start maximizing your time:

Learn to say NO
This is the most effective time maximizing word.

When you work—work and when you play—play
Don’t mix the two. Give it your all while working but once your business obligations are done, take the time to play.

Know your peak hours
Discover your most productive time. Schedule your most demanding business activities during your peak hours.

The telephone is for your convenience
There is no law that says you have to answer the phone or give out your cell phone number. If you don’t have a secretary, use caller ID, answering machine or voice mail to screen you calls. Return them at your convenience. This applies to both business and family time.

Use one calendar - Day Planner
Make your day planner the central location for your information. Keep track of business expenses, both personal and business appointment, telephone conversations, meeting notes, to do list etc.

Know the value of an hour
Take the total amount of hours you work a week and multiply them by 50. Now take your current yearly income and divide it by those hours. That is your hourly worth.

For example: You work 30 hours a week. 30 x 50 = 1500. Your income is $100,000. Divide $100,000 by 1500 and you get $56.67. Your working hour is worth $56.57. Repeat this for your desired income.

Hire somebody or delegate it
Are you really saving money doing it yourself or is costing you money?

Have a game plan
Always plan your day before you start. This is going to take great discipline. Once you’ve mastered that move to planning your week, then a month, 3 months, 6 month, and than a year.

Manage Interruptions
Put a do not disturb sign on your door. If some on insist on interrupting you with a problem, have them write it out with 3 possible solutions before seeing you. Don’t forget to turn the TV off. TV is a great time interrupter. Actually it’s a great time stealer.

Organize your work space and home
Disorganization and messiness can weigh you down. You’ll get more done if your organized. This may take more time up front to set it up but will save time in the long run.

Either you run your day or your day will run you, which do you choose?
