SL today

I'm on sick leave today. Last night, i went home an hour earlier than my off time. I wasn't really feeling well. My head's just so heavy. So when i woke up this morning, the feeling just get worst. I decided not to report to work or i'll just be grumpy and moody in the office. Fortunately, i felt better in the afternoon. The weather wasn't helpful either. It rained heavily that all you'd want to do is lie down and suspend and think of all the unthinkables. Lousy day that i just washed all my soiled clothes!

mortgages

I'm sure everyone of you is at least familiar with the word mortgages? If not, let us define first the term mortgage. It is a conditional conveyance of property as security for the repayment of a loan or put up as security or collateral. There are a lot of people now a days who are turning to rental properties in order to find a home, potential and existing landlords can look forward to a lucrative business, steady income, and an important financial investment for the future. Many lenders now offer buy to let mortgages for those interest in purchasing property with a view to renting it out.

I think it is wise to select cheap mortgages from among the various mortgages that people can choose today and that include fixed rate mortgages, variable rate mortgages, tracker mortgages, offset mortgages, discount rate mortgages, adverse credit mortgages and buy to let mortgages.

dance number

Since i joined Lear over 6 years ago, I have always been active in extra curricular activities. I participate in different committees except for Kaizen/SixSigma because i just hated it. As a result, up until now never have i submitted a proposal for continuous improvement. Anyways, back to the topic, I always join in dance numbers and presentations except during my first christmas party with the company because i'm poor in ballroom dancing. Christmas party is now again to come and of course people are already practicing. I wanted to join but i just feel that it's no longer my time. I feel that i'm way too old for it already. Yak! It's like, ok, its not my generation anymore. And i feel tired already just thinking about the practices. Yaks! i'm really getting old! LOL! But it's nice to reminisce the fun days back then practicing all our previous presentations. :)

garage storage system

Hey, do you need extra space for storage? Why not make use of your garage? This will make your garage extra functional. The thing is you have to furnish a garage storage system that will make it realistically more than useful. You can install cabinets and workbenches to make use of your garage. There are a lot of cabinets that you can choose from depending on your need - diamond plate garage cabinets, metal garage cabinets, aluminum garage cabinets, stainless steel garage cabinets among many others. You might as well need some garage floor coating or flooring. Once done, viola, you have a very organized garage to boost.

interesting (joke!)

Five cannibals (Man eaters) get appointed as programmers in an IT company. During the welcoming ceremony the boss says: "You're all part of our team now. You can earn good money here, and you can go to the company canteen for something to eat. So don't trouble the other employees".

The cannibals promise not to trouble the other employees.

Four weeks later the boss returns and says: "You're all working very hard, and I'm very satisfied with all of you. One of our developers has disappeared however. Do any of you know what happened to her?"

The cannibals disown all knowledge of the missing developer. After the boss left, the leader of the cannibals says to the others: " Which of you idiots ate the developer?"

One of the cannibals raises his hand hesitantly, to which the leader of the cannibals says: "You FOOL ! For four weeks we've been eating team leaders, managers, and project managers and no-one has noticed anything, and now YOU ate one developer and it got noticed. So hereafter please don't eat a person who is working!

Inspiring because it is sometimes unbelievable to hear success stories and ill fated love affairs turn into happy endings. The more that i cannot watch this show anymore because it's being shown on Fridays and Fridays means going home late! ;)

Pero in fairness, cute sya, blue strappy flat sandals, terno sa akong blue sling blag! (haay ka-aryat gyud!) :D What's worst, i "purchased" a new set of eye glasses... and it cost MUCH! arrgghhh!!!!

if not for delahoya

I was never really a fan of boxing. If not for Oscar dela Hoya, i would never watch any boxing bout ever. Oscar dela Hoya changed my mind! hehe! He's the most good loking boxer i know! He doesn't look like a boxer at all... Basta!

It was one Sunday noon when my father was all focused on the TV watching dela Hoya's bout against this fighter (i forgot the name sounds like weather hehe). I was at home and no choice but watched it as well. I was like, oh my, how could this good looking guy become a boxer?!?! Good thing though, even he didn't win in that fight, he didn't bruise his pretty face :) So there... i sometimes now watch boxing on tv, not because someone else is watching it. But i think dela Hoya is retiring already so I wont be able to see him kick some ass in the ring again. Too late, i should have known him before then i could have watched all his boxing matches. :P

air ambulance

Did you know that there is a central hub for information about air ambulance services? Yes, there is and it does exist. Finding healthcare services or resources are now readily available online through airambulance.net where getting the much needed information is easy and is just a click away.

Emergencies are inevitable and when it happens, air ambulance emergency rescue unit or services are the best refuge we could get. Now what exactly are Air Ambulance Services?

excited!

I'm excited, almost 31 days left. It's not Christmas, though of course i'm excited for Christmas too. But what i'm excited about is something different...i cant tell you just yet... ooopps it's not about my lovelife. I hope it's about that too hehe but no it's not. :) Don't worry i'll keep you posted about it! hehe! :P *pathrilling effect*

coupons for everybody

Cheers everyone! I could smell the spirit of Christmas already. Here in the office, we have started our department Christmas party planning already even if it's only October. We just want that our gettogether will be as memorable and fun as it could be. Most of us are excited of the gift certificates to be given out on the company wide party. Maybe next time the management could give out some online shopping coupons for a change perhaps.

Since, it's Christmas, we always like to give and receive gifts right? I have some ideas for your gifts that surely will interest you and that whoever receives it will be delighted. Most women like jewelries, so why not check out bluenile coupons and give your special someone a sterling silver diamond heart tag bracelect. This item is so cute and you get to save 20% on the actual price.

Gadgets and electronic tools are quite nice as gifts too. I wouldn't mind if somebody gives me a new digital camera. I'm giving a hint to friends out there. Come on, try out dell coupons and get discounts from most of their items on sale.

Women can never have too many bags. So if you're planning to purchase bags for your sisters, parents or girlfriends. Check out ebags coupons and get the best deals ever.

long weekend for us

It's gonna be a special non-working holiday here tomorrow - October 12 is the end of Ramadan for our Muslim brothers. This special holiday does not have a fix schedule, it varies every year. I'm not so lucky this weekend because i can't enjoy the long weekend. I need to be working tomorrow maybe and on Sunday. Saturday too but i need to attend Nanette's wedding.

real estates in hawaii

Hawaii - a state in the United States in the central Pacific on the Hawaiian Islands. For me, one of the superb vacation destinations in the world. It's surely in my list of dream places to go to. However, if you wish to transfer and live there, you must be looking for Hawaii real estate to buy?

Oahu, an island of central Hawaii (between Molokai and Kauai); the chief island of the state. If you're looking for some homes, condos and land available in this side of the state. Sure, you won't be frustrated because there are lots of Oahu real estate for sale daily.

Even if you're looking for Kauai real estate in Kauai. This island of Hawaii northwest of Oahu has a lot of the finest homes, condos and land available for sale too. I bet, it takes a lot of deciding which among the many great cities you'd like to settle. Whichever the case is, it will surely be a one great experience.

vacation in newport

When you're bombarded with a lot of stuff like tons of work perhaps. Isn't it that your one great wish is to go on vacation or travel somewhere else just to take a breather? It's always nice to get a short respite when we are already exhausted with work.

In our pursuit with the sometimes elusive vacation, choosing where to stay could be tough one way or another. But don't despair, there are lots of vacation rentals that you could choose from. One great destination in the United States is San Diego, so find your best relaxing spot in one of the San Diego vacation rentals and have that wonderful vacation.

Of course, who could put away in mind the beautiful California? Don't you wish you are there staying in one of the cozy Newport Beach vacation rentals right at this very minute. Now i remember the nice places in one of the series i saw on TV which features Newport.

So, relax, take a break and have some fun vacationing.

nanette's shower party

I guess I already mentioned that one of my college friends is getting married come October 13. She had her bachelorette party last Friday and i'm regretful that i wasn't there. I really intend to come and join, sadly an urgent task in the office halted me. That's a lame excuse i know - but i'm just a mere employee. Arrggghh!

hawaii real estate

One of my dream tour destinations is Hawaii. Sure thing, maybe some of you doesn't only want to tour Hawaii but would rather want to live in Hawaii. Then it follows that you must be looking for the finest Hawaii real estate. I'm pretty sure of that.

If you like Maui, the second largest of the Hawaiian Islands - there are also lots of Maui real estate that you can see and select. Even if you do not like to permanently live in Hawaii but wanted to invest on real estate, that's still amazing because real estates are quite good investments.

watches for everyone

One of the accessories that I feel incomplete when I'm not wearing any is a wristwatch. It seems like something is missing whenever I go out without it. I have always been a fan of wristwaches. If only I can have a grand collection of watches, i sure would.

I know some of you out there are also fan of watches. Here's one great site that I'll share to you which you can shop online for all kinds of watches there is in the market today. If you are price conscious, worry not because you can browse through all the available watches by price range.

If you want to always match your attire or outfit to your watch. Then select from among the many watches by sytle. Should you wish a watch to be worn with a dress, sports or outdoor, or casual wear - you surely would find the perfect watch for it. I just love this, they also have pendant watch which are truly cute and functional.

Christmas is just around the corner, watches are nice gifts to give, don't you think?

THE U IN JESUS

Before U were thought of or time had begun,
God stuck U in the name of His Son.

And each time U pray, you'll see it's true,
You can't spell out JesUs and not include U.

You're a pretty big part of His wonderful name,
For U, He was born; that's why He came.

And His great love for U is the reason He died.
It even takes U to spell crUcified.

Isn't it thrilling and splendidly grand
He rose from the dead, with U in His plan?

The stones split away, the gold trUmpet blew,
and this word resUrrection is spelled with a U.

When JesUs left earth at His upward ascension,
He felt there was one thing He just had to mention.

"Go into the world and tell them it's true
That I love them all - Just like I love U."

So many great people are spelled with a U,
Don't they have a right to know JesUs too?

It all depends now on what U will do,
He'd like them to know,
But it all starts with U.

Paulo Coehlo’s Manual of the Warrior of Light

When a warrior is a victim of some injustice, he usually tries to be alone, in order not to show his pain to others.This is both good and bad.

It is one thing to allow one’s heart to heal its wounds slowly, but it is quite another to sit all day in deep contemplation for fear of seeming weak.

Inside each of us there lives an angel and a devil, and their voices are very alike. Confronted by a problem, the devil encourages that solitary conversation, trying to show us how vulnerable we are. The angel makes us reflect upon our attitudes and occasionally needs someone else’s mouth to reveal itself.

A warrior balances solitude and dependence."

12 reasons why you should say no to marriage?!?

A man walks into a drug store with his 8-year old son. They happen to walk by the condom display, and the boy asks,"What are these, Dad? To which the man matter-of-factly replies, "Those are called condoms, son.

Men use them to have safe sex. "Oh I see," replied the boy pensively. Yes, I've heard of that in health class at school."

He looks over the display and picks up a package of 3 and asks, "Why are there 3 in this package? " The dad replies,"Those are for high school boys, ONE for Friday, ONE for Saturday, and ONE for Sunday." "Cool" says the boy.

He notices a 6 pack and asks, "Then who are these for?" "Those are for college men," the dad answers, TWO for Friday, TWO for Saturday, and TWO for Sunday."

"WOW!" exclaimed the boy, "then who uses THESE?" he asks, picking up a 12 pack!
With a sigh and a tear in his eye, the dad replied, "Those are for the married men. ONE for January, ONE for February, ONE for March....etc."

har! har! har!

weddings here there and everywhere

I'm going to attend two weddings this month. One is for my college friend Nanette and the other one is my colleague getting hitched. There's another one in December, another college friend is getting married. Geezzz, is that really my only role in life - to attend weddings? Just mere guest?!? Soo synonymous to "always a bride's maid, never the bride". How sad!? :P Arrggghh here's more to that - i'm always a godmother too!? Speaking of, it's the 2nd birthday of my godson Gabo on Saturday. Tsk.. can't deny, i'm getting older... hayyy...

something to inspire you...

Something to inspire you... to pass on...

A ninety-one year old woman died after living a long dignified life. When she met God she asked him something that had long bothered her.

If Man was created in God's image, and if all men are created equal, why
do people treat each other so badly?

God replied that each person who enters our life has a unique lesson to teach us. And it is only through these lessons that we learn about life, people, relationships and God. This confused the woman, so God began to explain.

When someone lies to you it teaches you that things are not always as they seem. The truth is often far beneath the surface. Look beyond the masks people wear if you want to know their heart. And remove your own masks to let people know yours.

When someone steals from you it teaches you that nothing is forever. Always appreciate what you have, for you never know when you might lose it.


And never, ever take your friends and family for granted because today is the only guarantee you have.

When someone inflicts an injury upon you it teaches you that the human state is a fragile one. Protect and take care of your body as best as you can, it's the only thing you are sure to have here on earth.

When someone mocks you it teaches you that no two people are alike. When you encounter people who are different from you, don't judge them by how they look or act; instead base your opinion on the contents of their heart.

When someone breaks your heart it teaches you that loving someone does not always mean that person will love you back. But don't turn your back on love because when you find the right person, the joy that one person brings will make up for all the past hurts put together. Times ten.

When someone holds a grudge against you it teaches you that everyone make mistakes. When you are wronged, the most virtuous thing you can do is forgive the offender without pretense. Forgiving those who have hurt us is the most difficult and courageous thing Man can do.

When a loved one is unfaithful to you it teaches you that resisting temptation is Man's greatest challenge. Be vigilant in your resistance against all temptation. By doing so you will be rewarded with an enduring sense of satisfaction far greater than the temporary pleasure by which you were tempted.

When someone cheats you, it teaches you that greed is the root of all evil. Aspire to make your dreams come true, no matter how lofty they may be. Do not feel guilty about your success, but never ?let an obsession with achieving your goals lead you to engage in malevolent activities.

When someone ridicules you it teaches you that nobody is perfect. Accept people for their merits and be tolerant of their flaws. Do not ever reject someone for imperfections over which they have no control.

Upon hearing the Lord's wisdom, the old woman became concerned that there were no lessons to be learned from Man's good deeds. God replied that Man's capacity to love is the greatest gift he has.

At the root of all kindness is love, and each act of love also teaches us a lesson.

The woman's curiosity deepening, God once again began to explain. When someone loves us it teaches us that love, kindness, charity, honesty, humility, forgiveness and acceptance can counteract all the evil in the world. For every good deed, there is one less evil deed. Man alone has the power to control the balance between good and evil, but because the lessons of love are not taught often enough, the power is too often abused.

When you enter someone's life, whether by plan, chance or coincidence, consider what your lesson will be. Will you teach love or a harsh lesson of reality? When you die will your life have resulted in more loving or hurting? More comfort or pain? More joy or sadness? Each one of us has power over the balance of love in the world. Use it wisely.

Don't miss an opportunity to nudge the world's scale in the right direction.

Pass this lesson of love on to those you love and to those you have hurt. For each person who receives this, there will be a little less evil in the world and a little more love.

explore Germany!

Germany - a republic in central Europe; split into East German and West Germany after World War II and reunited in 1990. I have a few colleagues who have been there for temporary work assignments and trainings. I've seen a few pictures from them and of course there are lots of things to do and see in Germany.

If given the chance to be assigned in Germany, i surely will visit Berlin - the capital of Germany located in eastern part. Here are some places to visit in Berlin:

Schloss Charlottenburg is the largest existing palace in Berlin

The ICC and the Funkturm are part of the city's exhibition center

While in Berlin, maybe i could check out the many hotels in Berlin so that i have nice place to stay at. Hotels in Berlin should be as interesting as their tourist spots.

You know, i have really this big dream of travelling to Europe. Aside from Germany, Austria is in my list too especially in Vienna. Vienna is the capital and largest city of Austria, located on the Danube in northeastern Austria, was the home of Beethoven and Brahms and Haydn and Mozart and Schubert and Strauss. Just like Germany, Austria has a lot of tourist spots too.

the museum moderner kunst ("museum of modern art")

Then again, where to stay is never to be forgotten. Hotels in Vienna i'm sure are as astonishing in Germany. Among the many, I think I would be able to find the perfect hotels in Vienna.

death by chocolate

Death by chocolate. Hmnnn aint that a hip way to die? LOL! I'll think about it! Seriously, this phrase 'death by chocolate' got the curiosity in me when i read it in the desserts' list of Casa Verde restaurant. It sound very interesting, do you agree? I asked the waiter what it is made of? She said, it's a cake covered by ice cream. Unhesitatingly I said i'll order it. I hurriedly ate my dinner because i was already anxious about my dessert. I was a little disappointed when my order arrived. Contrary to what the waiter said, it looked more of a chocolate icecream covered by cake? I was literally only eating chocolate icecream only it has chocolate coatings. Fine, i eat anything sweet anyway.

I'm planning to have my hair makeover but i have no more money so i will have to content myself with this lousy-curly again-hair! Arrgghhh!!!

By the way, I can't believe that it's already October. It is just when that we celebrated valentine's day and now it's October! How time flies! Don't you think?

pingpong tournament

Our section is organizing a mini table tennis tournament. It will kick off next week. It has been 2 years ago when we had our first department table tennis tournament. The category was mix doubles and it was a fun experience. Now, i miss my team partner Sig. He's very good in pingpong, too bad that he had me for a partner! LOL! We did not make it to the finals. But that was okay because what mattered was that everyone had a fun time interacting and playing against each team. Our team then was named The Cute and The Chubby. Since Sig claimed that he was the cute, obviously, i'm the chubby. :P

I can't wait for this year's tournament to start. At least, i will have the chance to kick my lazy ass and have a little exercise.

The 25 Most Controversial Movies Ever

The 25 Most Controversial Movies Ever

The world's $583 million obsession with ''The Da Vinci Code'' proves it: We're fascinated by what shocks, disgusts, and divides us by

25 ALADDIN
DIRECTED BY RON CLEMENTS AND JOHN MUSKER (1992)
THE PLOT You know: the genie-in-the-lamp tale.
THE CONTROVERSY The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee balked at a lyric describing the film's Arabian setting as a land ''where they cut off your ear if they don't like your face.'' Result? The studio dubbed out the lyric for subsequent releases.

24 CALIGULA
DIRECTED BY TINTO BRASS (1980)
THE PLOT This lavishly decadent film depicts the orgy-filBOLD life and death of ancient Rome's most notorious — and clearly psychotic — emperor (Malcolm McDowell).
THE CONTROVERSY Described as a ''moral holocaust'' by Variety, the film was first given a very limited theatrical release for fear of prosecution on obscenity grounds.

23 KIDS
DIRECTED BY LARRY CLARK (1995)
THE PLOT A group of teens (played by, among others, Rosario Dawson and Chloë Sevigny) prowl the streets of NYC in search of sex, booze, drugs, and other high-risk kicks.
THE CONTROVERSY Clark's disturbing vision of promiscuous, borderline-sociopathic teens was heralded by some as a much-needed wake-up call about the nation's youth. Others saw prurient exploitation. As a buffer against the furor, Miramax created a new entity, Excalibur Films, to release the pic.

22 DO THE RIGHT THING
DIRECTED BY SPIKE LEE (1989)
THE PLOT Racial tensions in a Brooklyn neighborhood escalate from amusing to tragic during the course of a single scorching summer day.
THE CONTROVERSY While the film was seen by some as a masterpiece (and earned Lee a Best Original Screenplay Oscar nom), others blasted the director as irresponsible, predicting that the film's shocking climax — in which Mookie (Lee) hurls a trashcan through a storefront window, inciting a riot — would evoke similar reactions from urban moviegoers. Thankfully, the film proved to be more of a catalyst for heated debate than a flashpoint for actual violence.

21 BONNIE AND CLYDE
DIRECTED BY ARTHUR PENN (1967)
THE PLOT Faye Dunaway is Bonnie, a bored Texas girl looking for danger. Warren Beatty is Clyde, a pistol-packing ex-con. They fall in love and kick off an infamous Depression-era crime spree.
THE CONTROVERSY Two years before Sam Peckinpah's The Wild Bunch, Penn's bloody, slo-mo bullet-riddled finale, where the young lovers bite the dust, sparked an outcry — even tough-guy actor James Garner, no stranger to shoot-outs, called it ''amoral.

20 CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST
DIRECTED BY RUGGERO DEODATO (1985)
THE PLOT This nauseatingly graphic Italian prototype for The Blair Witch Project follows four documentarians filming cannibal tribes in the Amazon. They become lunch.
THE CONTROVERSY After its 1980 Milan premiere, the film's print was confiscated by the city's magistrate. Later, Deodato faced life in prison when Italian authorities believed the stars of his film were really killed. The actors finally appeared on TV to prove otherwise.

19 BASIC INSTINCT
DIRECTED BY PAUL VERHOEVEN (1992)
THE PLOT A trigger-happy detective (Michael Douglas) falls for a bisexual author (Sharon Stone) who's suspected of murdering her male lover with an ice pick.
THE CONTROVERSY Gay-rights activists objected to the portrayal of man-hating lesbians before a frame of film was shot and protested through the film's opening. Then there was the film's eye-popping sex, including Sharon Stone's notorious leg-crossing, which contributed to Basic's initial NC-17 rating.

18 I AM CURIOUS (YELLOW)
DIRECTED BY VILGOT SJÖMAN (1969)
THE PLOT Freewheeling Lena experiences the swinging '60s: protesting Vietnam, questioning the class system, and exploring carnal desires.
THE CONTROVERSY Before the 1967 Swedish film could open in the U.S., it was seized by customs officials concerned that scenes containing full frontal nudity and simulated sex acts were pornographic. The courts initially deemed the movie obscene, but the verdict was overturned.

17 FREAKS
DIRECTED BY TOD BROWNING (1932)
THE PLOT For his still-creepy circus noir about a midget who's conned by a greedy temptress, Browning used real sideshow performers.
THE CONTROVERSY Audiences fled preview screenings in droves. (One patron claimed the film caused her to miscarry.) Even with a castration scene cut, the National Association of Women found the film ''offensive'' and urged boycotts. It was banned in Atlanta and pulled from distribution; it was forbidden in the U.K. until the early '60s.

16 UNITED 93
DIRECTED BY PAUL GREENGRASS (2006)
THE PLOT An ultra-vérité re-creation of the tragic heroism surrounding — and inside — the only hijacked 9/11 flight not to reach its intended target.
THE CONTROVERSY Greengrass' virtually-there experience may have been a little too close for comfort for some moviegoers. Even the trailer's suggestion of the movie's content prompted audiences to shout Too soon! One New York City theater pulled the footage from its preview reel after many viewers (one left sobbing) complained.

15 TRIUMPH OF THE WILL

DIRECTED BY LENI RIEFENSTAHL (1935)
THE PLOT Riefenstahl's notorious documentary of the 1934 Nazi rally at Nuremberg elevates propaganda to seductive Wagnerian grandeur.
THE CONTROVERSY While intellectuals still ponder the ethics of admiring so malevolent a masterpiece, others have had more visceral reactions. In the early '40s, director George Stevens was so disturbed by the film that he joined the Army the next day. Protests greeted Riefenstahl (who never shook her Nazi-tainted past) at a 1974 Telluride Film Festival tribute, and the Anti-Defamation League decried a 1975 screening in Atlanta as ''morally insensitive.''

14 THE WARRIORS
DIRECTED BY WALTER HILL (1979)
THE PLOT Members of a street gang battle their way through a New York City populated by rival gangs (''Warriors, come out to plaaay!'').
THE CONTROVERSY Hill's lurid nightmare of urban warfare was widely condemned for glorifying violence. Reports of criminal incidents where the film was shown — including the stabbing of a teenager in Massachusetts — fueled the outrage, forcing Paramount to temporarily pull its print and TV advertising for the film.

13 THE DA VINCI CODE
DIRECTED BY RON HOWARD (2006)
THE PLOT A professor (Tom Hanks) unearths a 2,000-year-old conspiracy to cover up the marriage between Jesus and Mary Magdalene.
THE CONTROVERSY It didn't end up drawing mass pickets or boycotts, but there was much debate while the film was being made. Westminster Abbey wouldn't allow Howard to shoot inside its halls, and some 200 protesters mobbed the set in Lincolnshire, England (although Howard says most were merely ''trying to get autographs'').

12 THE DEER HUNTER
DIRECTED BY MICHAEL CIMINO (1978)
THE PLOT The Vietnam War shatters the lives of three Pennsylvania steel-mill workers.
THE CONTROVERSY By the time it won the Best Picture Oscar, Deer Hunter had ignited major debate over its shocking POW-camp scenes, in which American soldiers are forced to play Russian roulette. War historians argued there was no record of such atrocities, and others called the Vietcong depiction racist. Cimino called the criticisms ''beside the point.''

11 THE MESSAGE
DIRECTED BY MOUSTAPHA AKKAD (1977)
THE PLOT Anthony Quinn plays Mohammed's uncle in an epic telling of Islam's origins.
THE CONTROVERSY The movie rankled Muslims and sparked riots, and that was just during production. Post-release, in March 1977, Hanafi terrorists took more than 100 people hostage in Washington, D.C. — killing a reporter and shooting the city's future mayor Marion Barry in the two-day siege — demanding in part that The Message be banned. (It wasn't.) In a cruelly ironic coda, the Syrian-born Akkad died amid al-Qaeda's coordinated hotel bombings last fall in Amman, Jordan

10 BABY DOLL
DIRECTED BY ELIA KAZAN (1956)
THE PLOT A Mississippi cotton-gin owner (Eli Wallach) humiliates a competitor (Karl Malden) by attempting to seduce the man's still-virgin wife (Carroll Baker).
THE CONTROVERSY Written by Tennessee Williams, the film struck Catholic leaders as lewd. (A similar flap greeted 1943's The Outlaw over Jane Russell's bust.) New York's Cardinal Spellman forbade the faithful to see it ''under pain of sin.'' Some theaters pulled it, but it eventually earned four Oscar nominations.

9 LAST TANGO IN PARIS
DIRECTED BY BERNARDO BERTOLUCCI (1972)
THE PLOT A disaffected American (Marlon Brando) travels to Paris, where he throws himself into an affair with a young Frenchwoman (Maria Schneider).
THE CONTROVERSY Critics and audiences were sharply divided over this X-rated erotic psychodrama. The film's stark (as in naked) depiction of loveless, animalistic carnality horrified some — and landed its director and stars in an Italian court on obscenity charges.

8 NATURAL BORN KILLERS
DIRECTED BY OLIVER STONE (1994)
THE PLOT Homicidal lovers (Woody Harrelson and Juliette Lewis) cut a blood-soaked swath through America.
THE CONTROVERSY Though intended as a satire on the media, the film actually inspired several copycat killers to seek their own 15 minutes of fame, some even using imagery and dialogue from the film. Over 12 murders in the U.S. and abroad have been linked to Killers. One victim's family tried to sue Stone and Warner Bros.

7 THE BIRTH OF A NATION
DIRECTED BY D.W. GRIFFITH (1915)
THE PLOT Griffith's epic follows the travails of two families during the Civil War and Reconstruction.
THE CONTROVERSY The film's depiction of African Americans as childlike, conniving, or rabid sex fiends, and the Ku Klux Klan as heroic saviors, sparked nationwide protests by the nascent NAACP. (It also became a KKK recruiting tool.) Censorship debates and protests have dogged the film in subsequent rereleases and when it was added to the National Film Registry in 1993.

6 THE LAST TEMPTATION OF CHRIST
DIRECTED BY MARTIN SCORSESE (1988)
THE PLOT Jesus (Willem Dafoe) pursues his calling but, in a Satan-induced hallucination, dreams of a normal life that includes sex with Mary Magdalene.
THE CONTROVERSY Religious fundamentalists picketed and threatened boycotts weeks before its release. One group offered to buy the $6.5 million film from Universal to destroy it; some theaters, and later Blockbuster, refused to carry it. Oh, and the French rioted.

5 JFK
DIRECTED BY OLIVER STONE (1991)
THE PLOT The true story of how New Orleans district attorney Jim Garrison (Kevin Costner) investigated conspiracy theories about President Kennedy's assassination.
THE CONTROVERSY Some saw Stone's documentary-on-steroids-like interpretation of those theories as lending them a certain patina of truth — raising fears that moviegoers would construe it as bona fide history. One result: a 1992 congressional act to release classified documents (which revealed nothing).

4 DEEP THROAT
DIRECTED BY GERARD DAMIANO (1972)
THE PLOT Distraught over her inability to enjoy sex, a young woman (Linda Lovelace) goes to a doctor (Harry Reems), who tells her the condition can only be treated, um, orally.
THE CONTROVERSY Intellectuals championed the film for striking a blow for First Amendment rights, while conservative leaders got it banned in many places and put Reems on trial for obscenity charges. Lovelace herself later denounced the film, claiming that while filming ''there was a gun to my head.''

3 FAHRENHEIT 9/11
DIRECTED BY MICHAEL MOORE (2004)
THE PLOT Dubya's multitude of (alleged) sins, including the alliance between the Bush clan and Saudi Arabia and botched chances to prevent 9/11.
THE CONTROVERSY The documentary lit the fuse of right-wing America, detonating protests and hate campaigns to ban it (no dice). Moore was the first to break the post-9/11 moratorium on Bush bashing and set off a season of brutal smack-downs among the Bill O'Reillys and Keith Olbermanns of the world.

2 A CLOCKWORK ORANGE
DIRECTED BY STANLEY KUBRICK (1971)
THE PLOT Teen troublemaker/gang rapist Alex (Malcolm McDowell) gets brainwashed by a futuristic English government so that he becomes deathly ill every time he encounters violence.
THE CONTROVERSY You mean besides its irreverent use of Gene Kelly's ''Singin' in the Rain''? That the movie first landed an X rating and was deemed pornographic across the U.S. was nothing compared with its reception in the U.K.: Social uproar and reports of copycat crimes led Kubrick to withdraw Clockwork from distribution in his adopted country. It wasn't officially available there again — in theaters or on video — until 2000, a year after his death.

1 THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST
DIRECTED BY MEL GIBSON (2004)
THE PLOT You know the part in the Bible where Jesus gets betrayed, tortured, and crucified? That's it. That's all of it.
THE CONTROVERSY Gibson's intention — born of his deep Catholic faith — was to produce an unflinching depiction of Christ's suffering on behalf of mankind. What he succeeded at best, however, was igniting a culture-war firestorm unrivaled in Hollywood history. For months prior to its release, The Passion was both denounced and defended sight unseen amid reports that the film wasn't just brutal, but compromised by dubious biblical interpretation and anti-Semitic sentiment. Gibson refused to let concerned parties view and vet his self-financed film, even as he was giving Passion previews to Christians as part of an unprecedented church-targeting promo push. Ultimately, moviegoers pretty much got the experience they were expecting, while Gibson got a $370 million gross — plus a provocative new reputation

health Q & A session

Health Q&A; session

Q: I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life; is this true?
A: Your heart is only good for so many beats, and that's it... don't waste them on exercise. Everything wears out eventually. Speeding up your heart will not make you live longer; that's like saying you can extend the life of your car by driving it faster. Want to live longer?
Take a nap.

Q: Should I cut down on meat and eat more fruits and vegetables?
A: You must grasp logistical efficiencies. What does a cow eat? Hay and corn.
And what are these? Vegetables. So a steak is nothing more than an efficient mechanism of delivering vegetables to your system. Need grain?
Eat chicken.
Beef is also a good source of field grass (green leafy vegetable). And a pork chop can give you 100% of your recommended daily allowance of vegetable products.
_____
Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?
A: No, not at all. Wine is made from fruit. Brandy is distilled wine, that means they take the water out of the fruity bit so you get even more of the goodness that way. Beer is also made out of grain. Bottoms up!
_____
Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?
A: Well, if you have a body and you have fat, your ratio is one to one.
If
you have two bodies, your ratio is two to one, etc.
_____
Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program?
A: Can't think of a single one, sorry. My philosophy is: No Pain...Good!
_____
Q: Aren't fried foods bad for you?
A: YOU'RE NOT LISTENING!!!. Foods are fried these days in vegetable oil.
In
fact, they're permeated in it. How could getting more vegetables be bad for you?
_____
Q: Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle?
A: Definitely not! When you exercise a muscle, it gets bigger. You should only be doing sit-ups if you want a bigger stomach.
_____
Q: Is chocolate bad for me?
A: Are you crazy? HELLO ...... Cocoa beans! Another vegetable!!! It's the best feel-good food around!
_____
Q: Is swimming good for your figure?
A: If swimming is good for your figure, explain whales to me.
_____
Q: Is getting in-shape important for my lifestyle?
A: Hey! 'Round' is a shape!
_____

Well, I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have had about food and diets.

And remember: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming 'WOO HOO, What a Ride!'"
