nuclear power plant in Fukumi, Japan exploded at 4:30 AM today. If it rains tomorrow or later, don’t go outside. If you are outside, be sure that you have rain protectors. It’s acid rain. Don’t let it touch you. You may burn your skin, lose your hair or have cancer. Please pass, stay safe and remind everyone you
Praying for the people of Japan and those who will be affected by the resulting tsunami in Pacific rim. What horrible news to wake up to :(
A majorearthquake in Japan has triggered a tsunami on the north east coast, sweeping away cars, ships and buildings. Many buildings have collapsed or are on fire, and there are fears many people could be killed or injured. The Cosmos oil refinery outside Tokyo has exploded. You can watch footage of the devastation here, and the BBC Japan tsunami livepage has live updates on the situation.
We’ll be talking about the Japan tsunami today on BBC World TV at 1500 GMT.
Residents in Tokyo felt the tremors, reporting shaking and rocking buildings, even though the epicenter was 373 kilometers (231 miles) away from the city. People spilled out into the streets for safety.
Adel emailed us from Tokyo: “My house just got hit with the earthquake and I am bleeding all over. My house just fell and I have got three sons and one daughter. PLEASE HELP???”
Alex emailed us from Tokyo: “All the buildings were shaking heavily and power lines jumping around, there was a large cloud of smoke in the distance from what looked like a explosion. The road outside our hostel was shut due to a gas leak, we evacuated to open spaces were we was hit by several after shocks and still to this moment we are still feeling tremors and aftershocks.”
Shashan in Tokyo emailed us: “I work in a merchant ship as an engineer and our ship was unloading the cargo at the port. Suddenly in the afternoon our ship starts vibrating heavily. We went to the deck and found the whole city shaking and a building near by caught fire.”
15 Tips for Talking to Women in a Way that Attract Them
1.) You should talk about “emotional” topics like childhood memories, future ambitions, or her passions. These conversation topics will open up her emotional floodgates.
2.) Women want a guy who is not afraid to lead her. While talking to a woman take control of the conversation. Never wait for her to dictate what you’ll be talking about.
3.) Pay attention to the non verbal cues a woman is giving you. If you’re standing too close to her, accidentally spitting when you talk, or making her feel uncomfortable in any way… she will send you hints. Pay attention to them.
4.) Remember this motto “Fun not Funny.” Women are attracted to men who allow them to have fun. Don’t concentrate on having the funniest jokes. Concentrate on showing them the most excitement and enjoyment.
5.) Tease women. One of the easiest ways to take a conversation to a fun and flirty level is to begin to tease women. Think back to your time on the playground. In the world of dating… what worked on the playground is effective all over again.
6.) Get intimate with her. Women are turned on by men who are not afraid to take a conversation to a personal, intimate level.
7.) Use things like “cold reads” to turn women on. Women love to hear opinions about themselves. Tell her what you observe about her.
8.) Avoid complimenting a woman too much. Women are turned off by men who come across as “needy.” If you are complimenting a woman too much she will think you’re trying to impress her. Which will have the opposite effect.
9.) If you want to know how to talk to women in a way that doesn’t bore them… Avoid asking too many “interview” style questions. Instead state your opinion about things.
10.) Remember: Statements over questions. Instead of saying “where did you grow up?” Say “You don’t look like you grew up around here.” This allows you to make observations about her and express your personality.
11.) Don’t hide your identity. Don’t be afraid to talk about whatever you’re passionate about.
12.) Never compliment her on her eyes, looks, or body.
13.) Say something that lets her know that you view her in a “sexual” way. If you don’t you run the risk of winding up in the “friend zone.”
14.) Use conversation “games” to keep the mood fun and flirtatious. Games can be anything like “truth or dare” or to less extreme games like the “5 questions game”
15.) Don’t give away your hand so fast. Women like men who are a challenge. If you want to keep a woman’s interest she has to feel like she is slowly winning you over. If she thinks you’re too easy… she’ll lose interest.
The best way to think about how to talk to women is to think about what kind of fun, playful, and sexual conversation you would most enjoy.
Talking to a woman is not difficult. You just need to be aware of what they are turned on by. And what turns them off. Follow the list above and you’ll do just fine.
Now when you talk to a woman in a way that attracts her you’ll begin to notice that women will:
Make excuses to keep talking to you
Touch you more (putting her hand under your shirt, or feeling your muscles)
Getting jealous when you talk to other girls
Laughing at your jokes (even the ones that aren’t that funny)
Ecstasy: Reduces Anxiety, Eases Parkinson's Symptoms and Treats PTSD
The MDMA chemical compound that makes ecstasy so blissful to partygoers may also be useful in treating anxiety disorders. While formal studies have not yet been conducted, psychologists from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology argue that when combined with immersion therapy, the drug’s ability to release oxytocin levels could make MDMA an ideal drug to use with a complete treatment program. They sum up their theory by saying, “MDMA has a combination of pharmacological effects that, in a therapeutic setting, could provide a balance of activating emotions while feeling safe and in control.” The drug may also be able to treat Parkinson’s disease through the release of serotonin levels in the brain. While researchers still do not understand how the treatment works, it has proven effective in studies using mice and oneParkinson’s sufferer, ex-stuntman Tim Lawrence, who has shown notable improvement in his condition. He is able to go from barely being able to move to being able to perform somersaults and cartwheels shortly after taking one dose of the drug. Victims of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) are also showing a positive response to treatments involving ecstasy. Psychologists who performed a study using therapy and MDMA found the drug gave them a window of time where the patient experienced fewer fear responses and could adequately handle the therapy that is critical to work through their condition
