Los Angeles, May 01: The so-called ‘love hormone’ oxytocin, which is linked to a mother’s tender feelings for her child and long-term devotion between partners, can play a crucial role in picking Mr (or Ms) Right, say researchers
A new study has found that men and women who smell a whiff of oxytocin rate strangers as more attractive.
When oxytocin courses through our blood, "we are more likely to see people we don’t know in a more positive light," says Angeliki Theodoridou, a psychologist at the University of Bristol, UK, and the study’s lead researcher.
To reach the conclusion, scientists tested 96 men and women in a double-blindplacebo-controlled trial, reports New Scientist.
After participants got either a spritz of oxytocin or a placebo, they rated pictures of 48 men and women for attractiveness and 30 for trustworthiness. Her team also tested for mood.
Following the procedure, researchers found that volunteers who received oxytocin rated male and female strangers as both more attractive and trusting.
Researchers did not examine how oxytocin could affect social judgements, but Theodoridou speculates that the hormone dampens brain activity in a region involved in processing fearful emotions, called the amygdala.
Although Theodoridou’s study shows that oxytocin acts similarly on men and women when rating strangers, sex differences could emerge in real-world situations, says Jennifer Bartz, a psychologist at Mount Sinai Medical School in New York.
New Delhi, April 29: How you handle money at the beginning of your marriage can have an enormous impact on the rest of your life.
"Fifty percent of all marriages end in dissolution and the number one reason for that is financial pressures," says debt expert Howard Dvorkin. There's evidence that the divorce rate has been diminishing for a couple of decades and may be closer to a third than a half. Dvorkin, who runs the Consolidated Credit Counseling Services, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, has seen many marriages destroyed by money problems.
So, clear up the cash at the very beginning, and you can stop all of those arguments before they escalate out of control and build a prosperous future. Here's how...
Pay off the wedding expenses as soon as possible. The longer the debt lingers, the more it prevents you from accomplishing what you really want. Interest rates are increasing, so any debt you are carrying is likely to start costing more. Look at all the other debts you have as a couple and develop a plan for paying it off.
Develop a bill-paying system that works for you. It doesn't really matter whether you both agree to put all of your bills into the same shoebox, or use the latest in Internet banking, as long as you have a system that keeps you paying everything on time. Couples who are sharing their finances for the first time often wind up paying bills late just because they haven't got organized and that will affect their credit reports and scores.
Focus on your credit reputation. You'll both need good credit scores to buy that first family car or house. If one of you has a clean credit history and the other doesn't, keep those credit cards separate, says Dvorkin. The person who already has a good credit score can help the spouse build a better credit history by encouraging him or her to start with a secured credit card and then getting a regular credit card and making timely payments. Adding the "bad credit" spouse to the "good credit" spouse's cards won't help rebuild the weak credit score, but could hurt the good score.
Keep some checking accounts separate too. If you're both used to earning and spending your own money and have decided to kick in together for family finances, keep three checking accounts. One for each spouse and the household account, to which they both send money to cover shared expenses.
Talk about it all. Come up with a specific amount for purchases that are big and require you to discuss and agree to them together. Below that amount, each can spend the money without asking. New couples should have many discussions about their financial goals, too; it's easier to make the household money work if both partners are committed to the same ideal. Even if one spouse is the money person and the other isn't, set aside some time every month to discuss the family budget so both know where the money's coming from and where it's going. Even the spouse who doesn't manage the family money should know where it is.
Melbourne, April 28: Making a rather surprising revelation, an investigative celebrity blogger and biographer has claimed that Brad Pitt dumped Jennifer Aniston because he thought she was a lesbian.
Writing on his blog, Ian Halperin, revealed that a source named Toni (who is reportedly a friend of Angelina Jolie) said Pitt started dating Jolie because his marriage to former ‘Friends’ star wasn’t fulfilling enough.
Halperin also claimed that the ‘Troy’ star finally pulled the string on his relationship with Aniston because she never wanted to have sex with him.
“Brad likes to have sex a lot and Jennifer never wanted to sleep with him,” The Daily Telegraph quoted Toni as saying.
He added: “He started to speculate that she was gay, though he never caught her with another woman or anything like that. He was very frustrated for a long time. Then he met Angelina, who is insatiable in bed, and the rest is history.”
He further revealed that stories about Jennifer not wanting kids were just a ploy by Jolie to justify the affair.
The insider said: “Brad always said that was a lie. Jen actually was ready to settle down and have kids the day Friends wrapped. That’s not why he left her. He really did love Jen but she just wasn’t fulfilling his needs.
“I don’t really know Jen and I found it hard to believe she swings both ways. When Brad confided his suspicions, I told him, ‘no way!’
“But when she started dating John Mayer, I thought hey maybe there is something to Brad’s theory. Everybody knows that Mayer is gay. Not a big secret. I can see the appeal of him hooking up with Jennifer but what does she have to gain by dating him if she’s straight?”

Steve Jobs may be off work at the moment, folks, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t working. That’s right, even after taking a leave of absence from Apple, co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs is still involved with the major projects that Apple is working on right now. According to AppleInsider, Jobs played a big part in the recent iPhone OS 3.0 release, and is apparently working on a tablet-size device, bigger than an iPhone but smaller than a MacBook.
Rumors about an Apple tablet have been flying around for ages, even more so lately, but if sources close to Jobs himself say he’s working on it, then there’s a good chance that there’s something going on. Also, recent reports of Apple ordering 10″ touchscreens might have something to do with it. All the signs are pointing towards a device being released in the next year or so, so it’ll be interesting to see what happens.
Here’s an interesting thought, as well; if Steve Jobs was to spend longer outside of office, Apple apparently has a roadmap for the next few years already planned out.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama said on Friday the recession-hit U.S. economy was showing "glimmers of hope" despite remaining under strain and promised further steps in coming weeks to tackle the financial crisis. "We've still got a lot of work to do," Obama told reporters after a meeting with economic and regulatory teams plus Federal Reserve Board Chairman Ben Bernanke. But he added, "We're starting to see progress." Obama spoke a day after encouraging trade and jobless figures pushed stocks higher, and White House economic adviser Lawrence Summers predicted the economy would emerge from a sense of "freefall" by the middle of the year. Less than three months into his presidency, Obama stopped short of declaring that the recession he inherited from predecessor George W. Bush was bottoming out. But he offered a somewhat more upbeat tone than he has recently on the state of the economy, which is locked in its worst crisis in decades. "What we're starting to see is glimmers of hope across the economy," he said. "Over the next several weeks, you'll be seeing additional actions by the administration," he added but gave no details. Obama made no mention of "stress tests" being conducted at 19 major U.S. banks. The results, due at the end of April, are anxiously awaited by the financial markets. The White House had said Obama was to receive a status report on those appraisals on Friday. Attempting to assess banks' capital needs, the government is testing how they would fare under more adverse economic conditions than are expected.

Indian Economy ! Worst Position Economy Or The Worth Position Economy ?
LLifestyle of country affect their economy very well as in India we have such a huge population but still our workforce is very low ,but in USA where population is very less compare to India , still they are more developed, all this is due to Lifestyle of the country . As we can see in America the lifestyle is that they use to live alone by their own this is their lifestyle but this is the major source for the development the America because the people live alone they have to earn their livings , that increases the participation rate ,which increases productivity which increases income and so increases the employment and so the cycle goes on . Now i would like to have the example of India specially of rural India because still a large amount of our workforce is from rural areas , people in India live together in joint family like a farmer family having one head of the family and four children all above 18 , do work on farm with their father and having a land of about say 4 hectare on which they use to cultivate wheat and in the month of March they got the production of about 80 tonnes !!! But !!! This amount of production only needed three workers which means two member of their family are not required on farm ,This is also called Disguised Unemployment ,But think if that two people could do the work at some other place where labour is required ,they could increases their family income and Country's GDP also and if we see There are about 50 or more families working as farming in a single village ,and their are about More than 50,000 Village In India that means if take the minimum lower range data there are about 50 x 50,000 that is about 25,00,000 lakhs families working as farmers and if 2 people from every family that means 25,00,000 x 2 that is 50,00,000 lakhs people could increases the Productivity , But this is not seen in India because of Indian lifestyle . but still i like Indian Economy because at the time of recession when USA is facing a bulk of losses , that time citizen of India's earning does not affect at large , because they are already Disguised Unemployed !
At conclusion if we see from the vision of Urban Citizens ,Indian Economy is a Worst Position Economy , But if we see from the vision of Rural Citizens India Is a Worth Position Economy .
