Swedish ‘Heartbreak Hotel’ Consoles Divorcees With Money-Backs

Sweden (Sputnik) – Swedish hoteliers believe in love, apparently: one Swedish hotel chain is offering couples who stay there a weird refund – on the condition that they get divorced within a year of their stay. The hotel chain is so sure that a cozy hotel stay is a panacea for a tangled relationship that they are actually betting their money on it. The Countryside Hotels chain was founded in 1983 and runs around 40 hotels across Sweden. Their new scheme applies to married couples who spend the night in the same room booked under their “relationship guarantee.” Provided that they split less than 12 months hereinafter, Read More

5 Tips for the Young and Unemployed

(FEE) – Most of the career advice young people receive today is staggeringly bad. We’re told to take out large amounts of student debt (an average of 35k) to get a degree, apply for jobs at tons of different companies, and spend all our time making sure our resume has the right format. We’ve spent the last 4 years in school usually accumulating nothing but theory and developing few skills that make us competitive in the job market. I was lucky enough to avoid most of this. I left college early and never had anyone fill my head with stale Read More

Breed Bans Are Cruel and Don’t Even Work

(FEE) – me of my favorite people are dogs. Unlike some humans I could mention, a dog has never asked me to borrow money, cut me off in traffic, or used up all the toilet paper in the bathroom without the courtesy of refilling it (or at least warning me by strategically placing the empty cardboard tube on top of the toilet seat). Dogs are great. They’re enthusiastic, warm, and cuddly. They provide comfort, security, and have been shown to have extensive psychological and therapeutic effects. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that, among other benefits, the health Read More

Millennials Struggling to Make Ends Meet, Some Forced to Sell Clothes to Eat

(Sputnik) – New figures show people born after 1983, also known as millennials, are more likely to have borrowed money from friends and family or sold their possessions in order to pay their bills. The survey, conducted by an international broker Norton Finance, revealed that over a third of 18-34 years old have been forced to go without food and heating as salaries have failed to increase, yet the cost of living has. Paul Stringer, managing director of Norton Finance has said that this research gives a glimpse into how millennials are living and the reasons why. “With this piece of research we wanted to take a snapshot of British finances, looking at how each Read More

Revenge is Tweet: The Arnold Mocks The Donald’s Low Ratings (VIDEO)

(Sputnik) – Actor and politician Arnold Schwarzenegger has posted a video online taunting US President Donald Trump, after the latter took time out from running the most powerful nation in the world to mock the former in a tweet. Responding to a new Gallup poll released earlier in the week showing Trump at an approval-rating low of 37 percent, Schwarzenegger, the former governor of California, said, “Oh, Donald — the ratings are in, and you got swamped.” Schwarzenegger piled on, according to The Hill, stating, “Wow. Now you’re in the 30s? But what do you expect? I mean, when you take away after-school programs for children and Meals on Wheels Read More

Chuck Berry: Fistfuls of Tinkling Anarchy

(FEE) – Chuck Berry was a complicated figure. His run-ins with the law later in life were not hard to predict. Before beginning to play to black and white audiences alike, he was arrested for car thefts and armed robbery. Johnny B. Bad In an obituary, the New York Times described his sound as “reckless and audacious.” His life could be described the same way. And while you cannot extract one’s work from one’s life, I do think we give up too much when we require perfection to be the standard for appreciation. Being a great artist does not excuse Read More

Pumping Iron at 80: Incredible Bodybuilding Champ Teaches You How to Defy Aging

(Sputnik) – Bodybuilder Ernestina Shepherd, 80, has a fit physique that puts many 20-year-olds to shame. US senior citizen Ernestina Shepherd is an unlikely fitness fanatic: she didn’t take up sport until she was in her fifties and was even excused from school physical education lessons due to an ankle injury. Now Ernestina is 80 years old and remains in incredible shape thanks to a regular exercise routine. When she was 71, she entered her first bodybuilding competition and won recognition as the world’s oldest female bodybuilder from the Guinness Book of World Records. Astonishingly, Ernestina, from Baltimore in Maryland, only began her journey to peak fitness when she was 56 years old. Read More

Watching Porn Affects the Brain, Things Will Never Be the Same Again

(Sputnik) –  Today, with pornography only ever a few clicks away, a multitude of attitudes to sex imagery abound. Regardless of what porn aficionados have to say, Swedish researchers maintain that excessive porn consumption affects the brain. Like every other gratifying experience, watching sexual images releases high levels of the neurotransmitter dopamine, which is often referred to as the “happiness drug” and is a key ingredient in the brain’s reward system. It is known to create vivid memories and spur a strong desire to relive the same stimulation again. Neuroscientist Predrag Petrovic, an associate professor of psychiatry at the Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, has long studied the Read More

Every Taco Bell Is a Chapel

(FEE) – Taco Bell recently had two great ideas that had nothing to do with its menu. It is opening a wedding chapel in its store in Las Vegas. And it is holding a competition called the “Love and Tacos” sweepstakes. The likely winner posted a photo that went viral of her wedding dress made of Taco Bell wrappers, to be announced on March 16. Genius! Fast food thrives off genuine love for its brand, service, and product, without which it could never work. So this competition is entirely appropriate, and how wonderful that its marketing has tapped into Read More
