Men Love Gossip More Than Women [Research]

The myth that women gossip more than men has been disapproved as studies have shown that men of “nowadays” gossip more than women.
“It is commonly believed that women are the ones who love to spread rumours, and gossip about their friends behind their backs…but today, men…is worse! Men…love a bit of scandal, and will do anything they can to be centre of attention with their colleagues and peers.”

A new study carried out recently by psychology lecturers at the Western Canadian Undergraduate University, Canada, claims that although men and women love to gossip, chatter tends to bring guys closer, and tear female friends apart.
The study found that men chat about shared activities such as sports, which automatically brings them closer while women chat about physical appearance – which can endanger friendships.
Yet another study recently conducted by global research company, Onepoll, revealed that men spend an average of 76 minutes a day chatting and gossiping with their friends or work colle…

Mystery: Baby Girl Born With Hands Joined Together

In the public hospital of Itagua� (RJ) in UK last weekend was born a girl with hands joined together, like one who's praying.
The doctors told the parents that they would operate the hands of that girl
and that they would give her antistatic. The operation was easy because it seemed like the hands were simply glued together by one membrane (skin), layer apart.
When they opened up the hands of the child, you can't imagine what was written...
The doctors started weeping and all that were in the hospital.
The suburb of Itagua� is undergoing a movement now, People that have withdrawn from church are going back and others are receiving Jesus Christ as the only savior.
God sent that child simply to convey his message.
After a few hours, she died.
Mission accomplished.

LED: President Goodluck Launches Energy Saving Bulbs

President Goodluck Jonathan Wednesday formally launched energy saving bulbs otherwise known as LED (light emitting diodes) with a view to encouraging Nigerians to buy the bulbs in order to reduce the cost of energy consumption in the country.
The formal launching of the bulb is a fiest step in government’s commitment to ensuring that reputable companies are persuaded to come to Nigeria to begin local production of the bulb as well as encourage local manufacturers of electricity bulbs to change to the energy saving.

President Jonathan who performed the ceremony at the presidential villa noted that ‘the whole world is changing; they are phasing out the bulbs that emit so much heat to ones that save energy. It has nothing to do with our commitment to stabilise power in this country. We will continue to work hard to stabilise power and as we work hard, this is a big country it will take us up to a year to create the awareness across the country and we don’t need to wait until we stabilise p…

President Goodluck Jonathan renamed the university, founded in 1962 on two campuses, after the winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election in his Democracy Day broadcast this morning.

Jonathan, whose first year in office had seen his public approval rating dip, said the roles of Abiola in the enthronement of democracy cannot be wished away saying the labour of our heroes past must be rewarded.

How To Overcome Adversity

It is through adversity that we display what we really are made of.
Adversity: Could You Overcome This?
Paul got off 2 hours later than normal. He was working overtime to save up for a home purchase he wanted to make at the end of the year. Tired and ready to get home, he slowly walks to the car while rambling through his pockets trying to find his keys. As he finally arrives to where his car was parked, he is alarmed to find shards of broken glass and tire marks but no vehicle. Someone had stolen his car and to make matter worse he didn’t have any insurance. Paul called the police and submitted a report about his stolen vehicle.

As he walks in the door, defeated and exhausted, his wife greets him with the biggest smile he has ever seen. He didn’t want to kill her great mood so he decided he would wait and tell her what happened after dinner. The car was their sole means of …

5 things women worry about in a relationship

When it comes to dating, most women have a few insecurities and they tend to worry about very different things than men. Your actions can make a big difference on how secure she’ll feel when she’s with you. Here are 5 things women worry about when it comes to dating or being in arelationship. 1. She thinks you might not call her after a date
The first step to building a woman’s trust is to following through with what you promise her. So if you say you are going to call her on Thursday, call her Thursday. If you say Friday, do it. If that’s not your style, though, or you’d like to keep a little mystery, don’t be definite about when you’ll be calling. It’s better than breaking a promise and at least she won’t be waiting by the phone on a certain day.
2. She thinks you just want to have sex with her
It’s a hard line to walk: If you make a move too soon, she’ll think that’s all you want. If you wait too long, she’ll think you’re just interested in her friendship. So the best way to work this …

Mistakes Men Make in Marriage

Men, you often don’t mean to nag, but you may be making mistakes that risk ruining your marriage. In fact, if you are a typical man, you are likely making several mistakes and quite often. Don’t believe me? Ask your wife.
Now, before you get all defensive, this isn’t about blame. These are not... Ridiculous relationship mistakes; they are the subtle things that you might not even know you’re doing. And changing these habits could make a big difference to your wife and that can only be good for you.
Recognising these mistakes and making efforts to correct them will not only help your marriage, it may also help your health and that of your spouse. Over time, negative feelings in relationships that are not addressed can lead to physical and psychological problems, says Silver Spring. Now I want to show you some of those things you are doing wrong and which are hurting your wife without you knowing it. As usual, I expect some attacks from the men, but that won’t matter; I am enjoying every bi…
