Yes, sex can kill you, U.S. study shows

Number of View: 142 CHICAGO (Reuters) – Sudden bursts of moderate to intense physical activity — such as jogging or having sex — significantly increase the risk of having a heart attack, especially in people who do not get regular exercise, U.S. researchers said on Tuesday. Doctors have long known that physical activity can cause serious heart problems, but the new study helps to quantify that risk, Dr. Issa Dahabreh of Tufts Medical Center in Boston, whose study appears in the Journal of the American Medical Association. The team analyzed data from 14 studies looking at the link between exercise, sex and the risk of heart attacks or sudden cardiac death — a lethal heart rhythm that causes the heart to stop circulating blood. They found people are 3.5 times more likely to get a heart attack or have sudden cardiac death when they are exercising compared to when they are not. And they are 2.7 times more likely to get a heart attack when they are having sex or immediately afterward compared with when they are not. (These findings do not apply to sudden cardiac death because there were no studies looking at the link between sex and cardiac …

Man Considering Divorce Enquiring on Property Sales Proceeds

Number of View: 555 Hi Gilbert , I would like to seek your advice, I am already 41 years old and is now considering to go seperate ways with my wife.  I also have a 8 years old daughter. In most cases, should we sell our property  or seek for divorce first ? If divorce first, how long will it take if both agree to the terms and agreement ?

Where did it go wrong?

Number of View: 202The Guardian http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/2011/feb/09/where-did-it-go-wrong I was in debt and utterly broken I got married very quickly in 1999 after a whirlwind “romance”; I was 24. Everyone I knew must have been thinking I was making a mistake, rushing into things. But very few said it. Of course, it was a huge mistake (to cut a long story short, he was manipulative, mentally and physically abusive, and a woman-hater) and it took more than two years from our final split in 2001 to sort the divorce out. I had to do it on my own, without any co-operation from my ex-husband, or any legal advice, because I couldn’t afford it. My relationship with him had left me in debt and utterly broken. I appeared on my own in court, which was rather a surreal experience. It took me a few years of boring everyone I knew with the sad story to properly get over it, despite the fact that I embarked on another, ultimately doomed, long-term relationship in the meantime. It has always amazed and horrified me, when thinking about the episode afterwards, how easy it is to enter into marriage in comparison with how hard it is to …
