If Movie Posters Told The Truth

Here are 10 movie poster re-edited to convey what the movie is really about.

9 Foreign Words the English Language Desperately Needs

As demonstrated before, the English language has some grievous holes in it. We're talking about everyday phenomena that we have all noticed, yet don't have terms for. Fortunately, while we were busy fumbling with hand gestures and illustrations like cavemen, other cultures just made up the perfect words and phrases to encapsulate those little everyday moments filled with ... uh ... je ne sais quoi.

Malacca, Malaysia - My First Impression

Malacca is one of the most beautiful and photogenic places that I’ve been to in Southeast Asia. We were in Malacca last December 2010 and we enjoyed our stay very much.

We went straight to Malacca from Singapore Airport by taking a bus to Johor Bahru and another connecting bus to Malacca. Doing it your own wouldn’t be a problem and it’s definitely cheaper comparing to buying a transportation package in Changi.

We also got lucky when we were there because the local tourism board arranged a Post Deepavali celebration and invited various tourists from different hostels and hotels to join them. All of us got a free boat tour and was treated to a sumptuous Indian cuisine dinner. They also had various cultural presentations featuring local Indian, Chinese and Malay dances.

The Biggest Hoax Ever

A strange incident happened in Latvia. Something has fallen from the sky and supposedly caused a large crater. Scientists and experts rushed to the site believing it was a meteorite. There was even a video showing a fireball at the bottom of the crater.

But after all those, the experts claimed it was just a hoax. The hole was dug by shovel and the video was taken by a group of film students. But the most important part is that the representative of mobile network operator Tele2 said, that all of this was sponsored by Tele2 company.

Body Language : Arm-Cross

by Mihaela Lica

Understanding body language means holding the keys to clear communication. Modern managers learn the secrets of communication in special training seminars. But knowing what they know might as well help you in your career: you’ll know how to control your emotions and lead an interview (even a job interview) or you’ll know the real intentions of a dialogue partner.

So today I am going to talk about a simple gesture: arm-cross. This is when you fold your arms over your abdomen, generally hiding your hands under your upper arms. Some people hide just one hand, others simply cross their arms and touch their biceps muscles with their fingers or their palms. No matter how you look at it, this is a self-comforting posture used mostly unconsciously to alleviate nervous tension.
