Don't let your mental tensions control your life this year, if you are a Gemini sun sign born. Gemini is the third astrological zodiac sign. Being the third zodiac sign, it is always associated with the third house of astrology. It is considered a masculine and positive sign. This air sign is one of the four mutable signs. Gemini is ruled by Mercury. Those who are born between May 22 and June 21, are Gemini sun sign people. Gemini people are called duel-natured, because they represent virtue of versatility on the one hand, on the other they produce vice like double-facedness. Like their planet Mercury, they represent childhood and youth. Most geminians are intuitive and brilliant. Here is detailed discussion on 2011 Gemini horoscope:
  • Lucky day: Wednesday
  • Lucky number: 5, 14, 23, 32, 41, and 50
  • Stones for Gemini 2011: Topaz, Emerald, and Agate
  • Lucky colors: Orange, Lemon, Yellow

A Gemini person is always a good inventor. Public relations, journalism, art, writing, psychology, sales and any fields related to science are the perfect place for Geminians. This year, you will be totally attentive to your professional career, which will bring success and fame; provided you keep your personal things away from your career. Gemini businessmen should be alert before making any credit. Those who are involved in machinery and social services, should avoid any hasty decisions. This year will teach you how to manage your finance affairs tactfully.
Gemini relationship horoscope 2011:
When it comes to love and relationships, Gemini people will get full support from their partner during the first half of the year. This year is good for you to travel with your loved ones. After May, there are chances of misunderstandings between you and your partner, but you have to keep your ego down in maintain peace. Listen to your partner's opinions and respect them. Love will be smooth for all Gemini people if you handle all affairs with peace and love. Saturn will try to disturb your mind but you have to keep your cool on your senses.
Gemini health issues for 2011:
According to 2011 Gemini horoscope, Geminians will keep overall good health throughout this year. Gemini rules upper limbs and lungs. Since geminians are hyperactive, they should eat balanced food regularly. More mental tensions compared to health issues for Geminians this year. There is no such major health issue in 2011 and even if some minor issues take place during the second half of the year, they will be easily curable.
Gemini travel horoscope 2011:
Those Geminians who love travelling, this year may prove beneficial for them, as 2011 have major travelling chances with business benefits. June to November 2011- is the ideal time for traveling. Visa related issues may get over-complicated after April. While traveling, make sure not to carry checkbook in your pocket.

    Currently I am watching Secret Garden...
    Actually I'm not really a fan of Hyun Bin but I like Ha Ji Won ...
    When I saw the title I really wonder what the story is all about and what relates the story line with something
    like " Secret Garden"...
    But along the way..the story is getting funnier...I really love when JW (Hyun Bin) asked RI (HJW)
    " Instead of u being the bubble...can I just stay beside you and later disappear like the bubbles" He is referring
    to the Lil Mermaid fairy tale...the sad lil mermaid who sacrificed herself for her loved ones...
    I hope this drama wont disappoint me...as usual...I hate bad endings...
    When I think about the bubbles...I predicted it must have something to do with his illness so later on he will go away...If it is a disease...I hope he can be cured and not become the bubbles...(T_T)

    10 Steps to avoid Breast Cancer

    Posted by Lil' Sue at 12/18/2010 08:53:00 AM

    1. Maintain a healthy body weight (BMI less than 25) throughout your life. Weight gain in midlife, independent of BMI, has been shown to significantly increase breast cancer risk. Additionally, and elevated BMI has been conclusively shown to increase the risk of post-menopausal breast cancer.

    2. Minimize or avoid alcohol. Alcohol use is the most well established dietary risk factor for breast cancer. The Harvard Nurses' Health study, along with several others, has shown consuming more than one alcoholic beverage a day can increase breast cancer risk by as much as 20-25 percent.

    3. Consume as many fruits and vegetables as possible. Eat seven or more servings daily. The superstars for breast cancer protection include all cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cabbage, brussels sprouts, cauliflower) ; dark leafy greens (collards, kale, spinach) ; carrots and tomatoes. The superstar fruits include citrus, berries and cherries. Note: it is best to eat cruciferous vegetables raw or lightly cooked, as some of the phytochemicals believed to offer protection against breast cancer are destroyed by heat.

    4. Exercise regularly the rest of your life. Many studies have shown that regular exercise provides powerful protection against breast cancer. Aim for 30 minutes or more of moderate aerobic activity (brisk walking) five or more days a week. Consistency and duration, not intensity, are key!

    5. Do your fats right! The type of fat in your diet can affect your breast cancer risk. Minimize consumption of omega-6 fats (sunflower, safflower, corn and cottonseed oils), saturated fats and trans fats. Maximize your intake of omega-3 fats, especially from oily fish (salmon, tuna, mackerel, sardines, lake trout and herring). Consume monounsaturated oils (canola, olive oil, nuts/seeds, avocados) as your primary fat source, as these foods have potential anticancer properties. Specifically, canola oil is a good source of omega-3 fats; extra virgin olive oil is a potent source of antioxidant polyphenols, including squalene; and nuts and seeds provide you with the cancer protective mineral, selenium.

    6. Do your carbs right! Minimize consumption of the high glycemic index, "Great White Hazards" - white flour, white rice, white potatoes, sugar and products containing them. These foods trigger hormonal changes that promote cellular growth in breast tissue. Replace these "wrong" carbs with whole grains and beans/legumes. Beans/legumes because of their high fiber and lignan content are especially special.
    7. Consume whole food soy products regularly, such as tofu, tempeh, edamame, roasted soy nuts, soy milk and miso. Only consume organic, non-GMO (genetically modified) soy. Epidemiologic studies have shown a positive association between soy consumption and reduced breast cancer risk.

    8. Minimize exposure to pharmacologic estrogens and xeno-estrogens. Do not take prescription estrogens unless medically indicated. Lifetime exposure to estrogen plays a fundamental role in the development of breast cancer. Also avoid estrogen-like compounds found in environmental pollutants, such as pesticides and industrial chemicals. Buy organic produce if you can afford it; otherwise, thoroughly wash all non-organic produce. Minimize exposure to residual hormones found in non-organic dairy products, meat and poultry.

    9. Take your supplements daily. A multivitamin, 500-1,000 mg of vitamin C in divided doses, 200-400 IUs of vitamin E as mixed tocopherols, and pharmaceutical grade fish oil. Also take 200 mcg of the mineral selenium or eat one to two Brazil nuts as an alternative. If you have a chronic medical condition or take prescription drugs, consult your physician first.

    10. Maintain a positive mental outlook. Engage in self-nurturing behaviors regularly. Develop rich, warm and mutually beneficial relationships with family and friends. Get adequate sleep (7-8 hours per night). The mind-body associations with breast cancer are significant.

    7 Ways to Shrink Your Belly With Food

    Posted by Lil' Sue at 12/13/2010 12:05:00 PM

    Good news: If your midsection is feeling puffy, the reason may be bloat, not fat. Why is this good news? Because it’s a whole lot easier to de-puff, quickly, than it is to lose actual body fat, which takes more time. Try these food tips and you should be flatter, sexier, and fitting more comfortably into your clothes in less than a week
     7 Ways to Shrink Your Belly With Food - Banana
    1. Eat fiber-rich cereal
    Why It Beats Bloat: Constipation distends your belly, and one easy way to get rid of it is by starting each morning with a breakfast cereal that guarantees your body a daily dose of fiber. This gets the digestive system moving within a day or so and keeps it that way. Based on a recent study of cereals, University of Toronto researchers say that consuming two kinds of fiber at once is most effective. The scientists found that participants had an easier time staying regular with a cereal that contained both insoluble fiber (from bran) and gel-like soluble fiber (from psyllium). The two types work together to pull water into your colon and speed up elimination, explains Joanne Slavin, PhD, a professor of food science and nutrition at the University of Minnesota. The result? You’ll look and feel lighter.


    2. Watch the salt
    Why It Beats Bloat: Sodium makes you retain water, puffing up your belly. Most of us eat more than twice as much sodium as we should--topping 3,400 mg a day, rather than the recommended 1,500 mg, according to the CDC. A few strategies: Stop salting your food at the table, and check for sodium on the labels of packaged foods, which provide about three-quarters of the daily intake for most women.


    3. Go, ahem, bananas
    Why It Beats Bloat: Tired phrases aside, foods such as bananas and potatoes help your body get rid of excess water weight, which in turn minimizes your middle. The extra fluid typically occurs because the two main minerals that control the amount of water in your body—potassium and sodium—have become unbalanced. When your sodium level is too high, your tissues hold on to fluid. You can restore your sodium-potassium equilibrium by increasing your potassium intake to an optimum 4,700 mg per day. Some good sources include1 medium baked potato with skin, 1 medium banana, 1 medium papaya, 1/2 cup steamed edamame, 1/2 cup tomato sauce, 1/2 cup cooked spinach, 1 medium orange.

    4. Steer clear of sugar alcohols
    Why It Beats Bloat: We don't completely digest these low-cal sweeteners (found in flavored waters and low-carb, diabetic, and sugar-free foods). Bacteria in the large intestine ferment them, causing gas and even diarrhea. Check food labels to help avoid them; common ones are sorbitol, mannitol, xylitol, and lacitol.

    5. Drink up
    Why It Beats Bloat: Drinking enough liquid supports the other ways you're trying to flatten your tummy, says Bonci. For example, she explains, when there's enough fluid present in your system, the dual-fiber cereal you have eaten is better able to pull liquid into your lower intestine and ease constipation. “Women who don't drink sufficient fluids can get that blown-up belly feeling, despite all their other efforts to get rid of it," warns Bonci.

    How much fluid do you need? Getting rid of bloat means being well hydrated, so aim for at least 8 glasses of liquid each day, plus plenty of fluid-rich foods, such as fruits and vegetables. You can meet your quota with any liquid, including water, milk, juice, coffee, and tea--though not alcohol, which has a dehydrating effect on your system.

    6. Avoid candy, soda, gum
    Why It Beats Bloat: Once air from any source reaches your digestive system, you experience it as gas and a distended belly. Eating or drinking quickly, sipping through a straw, sucking on hard candy, and chewing gum can make you swallow air.

    7. Dig into yogurt with probiotics
    Why It Beats Bloat: Research published in Alimentary Pharmacology and Therapeutics reveals that an imbalance of bacteria in your gut can cause your digestive system to slow down and your belly to puff up. However, yogurts that contain live bacteria, otherwise known as probiotics, can help. Though researchers don't fully understand the mechanism, a study in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association found that the bacteria seem to tame tummy bloat by causing an improvement in intestinal mobility, thereby relieving constipation.

    The Surprising Benefits of Stress

    Although relaxation ought to be, um, relaxing, stress management has somehow become yet another pressing item on our to-do lists. We're made to feel like failures if we can't live in a state of balance. But stress is good. Great, even. The discomfort of stress is a sign that you are tackling life's problems head-on. Stress also improves productivity and performance — at work, at the gym — and your body will be stronger if you alternate periods of calm and heart-pounding excitement.

    Are you as healthy as you think?
    If you want a pretty healthy life, your goal is not to completely avoid stress and lounge in your pj's all day. Not only is the couch-potato life boring, it's a classic sign of clinical depression. Your goal is to bring on a reasonable amount of challenge and excitement — and amass a repertoire of strategies to keep you from being overwhelmed when life throws you a few too many curveballs.

    The Surprising Benefits of Stress

    How much sleep do you really need?
    Once stress reaches a certain level, however, productivity goes down. Too much stress can lead to sleep problems and irritability and, over the long term, is linked to high blood pressure and a weakened immune system. Know this: Sometimes stress will get the better of you. A crucial aspect of stress management is self-acceptance — knowing that you are, for example, a stress eater. There may be days when you are so frustrated that you eat a pound of fettuccine Alfredo. It happens. Do what you can to prevent these reactions — meditate, keep a food diary — and then move on.

    Is stress making your body ache?
    If stress gets to be too much, try these solutions:
    Ask for what you need. You have to stop feeling guilty or weak for relying on others. Remember: When you ask for help, you're giving your friends or family the gift of being needed. Conversely, just say no to requests that will only boost your anxiety levels.

    Meditation. People get nervous about trying this, but it's not hard. Find a quiet place to sit. Then think of a mantra, which is a sound, word, or phrase that has a peaceful or neutral meaning to you. The classic mantra is "om," but you can also try "stillness," or "calm blue ocean," or anything that feels right. Breathe in and say your mantra to yourself; exhale and say it again. Repeat this for 15 to 20 minutes, trying to focus on your mantra. Your attention will wander, and that's okay; gently bring it back to your mantra. That's it! And it's so worth it: Meditation evokes your body's relaxation response — meaning it physically calms you down, helps you tune out stress and other distractions, and even lowers your blood pressure.

    Eight ways to declutter your mind

    Deep breathing. Mentally count "one, two, three, four" while you inhale deeply. When you exhale, count "four, three, two, one."

    Guided imagery. Imagine yourself in a calming situation — say, a field of wildflowers or a beach. Use each of your senses to put yourself fully into the scene. Can you smell the flowers? Is the water warm against your toes?

    Keep a journal. Expressing your emotions in writing can be highly beneficial to your health and happiness, studies show.

    Everywhere I go
    I see a face we used to know
    I pass a place we used to be
    While it lasts

    Since the time was fade away
    My heart's not free
    It keeps on raining down on me
    Will there be a day when the sun will shine?

    I wanna see the sunshine after the rain
    I wanna see bluebirds flying over the mountains again
    Could it be?
    There is the silver lining shining at the rainbow's end?

    When I think about  it
    I start to cry
    Each day's not the same since the painful scar
    It's like a marathon, Tiring..and my heart aches..
    Wonder when it will be over?

    Every night I pray.....

    Tomorrow brings a sunny day
    And happy things
    Just like the way it used to be
    For all of us...

    I really wanna see bluebirds flying over the mountains again
    Hopefully there will silver lining shining at the rainbow's end

    Hahhahahaha...he's so funny!!! Pascal in action!

    Well...I almost forgot to say that I really love this cartoon, the latest by Disney (^_^) I watched this on 3D...

    A long, long time ago, a drop of sunlight fell from the sky, and when it touched the Earth, there blossomed a glowing yellow flower. The flower was then found by a woman named Mother Goethel, who soon learned that by singing a certain song to the flower, it exuded a power that restored her youth.

    Centuries passed, and a kingdom grew and prospered nearby. After sometime, the King and his Wife were expecting their first child, but the Queen was deathly ill, and rumor was that a glowing yellow flower created by a drop of sunlight could cure her. The soldiers of the kingdom searched far and wide, and finally found the flower that Goethel had been hoarding for many years.

    Distilling it into an elixir, the Queen was saved, and gave birth to a little girl, though unlike her parents, her hair was a golden color. Giving her the name Rapunzel, the Royal family held a celebration, sending aloft a glowing paper lantern.

    Soon finding the source of her youthful restoration taken, Mother Goethel stole into the castle, and upon finding Rapunzel in her crib, recited the song. The girl's hair glowed yellow just like the flower, but when Goethel attempted to clip some hair in hopes to use it to restore her beauty, the clipped hair turned brown, and Goethel then took the young girl with her.

    Taking her to a secret tower, Mother Goethel raised the girl to think that she was Rapunzel's mother, teaching her the song and relying on her for youthful restoration. As the years went by, Rapunzel was fascinated by a strange grouping of light that took place on the same day as her Birthday. Unknown to her, the releasing of lanterns is a tradition of the King and Queen, in hopes their daughter will return to them one day.

    Over the years, Rapunzel grows into a creative young woman, trying to busy herself stuck in her tower as Mother Goethel comes and goes as she pleases. Rapunzel also befriends a little chameleon named Pascal. Though she claims that she likes staying in her tower, she longs to leave it and see the world, especially the floating lights that occur on her Birthday.

    A few days before her Birthday, Mother Goethel visits her, and Rapunzel gets up the nerve to ask Goethel to take her to see the floating lights. Goethel quells Rapunzel's interest by scaring her into thinking that the world is too dangerous for someone as naive as her, and that people will want to capture her for her magic golden hair. Sadly, Rapunzel promises to not ask to leave the tower again.

    After Mother Goethel leaves, Rapunzel is shocked when a young man makes his way into the tower. After hitting him over the head with a frying pan and hiding him in her closet, Rapunzel now feels that Mother Goethel was wrong, and that if she was able to subdue a person and put him in a closet, maybe she can take care of herself! However, when Mother Goethel returns and tries to broach the subject again (trying to lead up to revealing the young man in her closet), Mother Goethel loudly proclaims that Rapunzel will never leave the tower.

    Quickly, Rapunzel changes the subject, and requests that Mother Goethel get her some seashells to make more white paint with. Mother Goethel is not pleased to make a 3-day journey for this, but does so in hopes that this will turn Rapunzel's mind away from leaving.

    After she is gone, Rapunzel releases the young man, and tying him in a chair with her hair, finds that his name is Flynn Rider. Thinking he's been sent to capture her and her hair, Flynn claims he was just looking for a place to hide, having stolen a tiara from the neighboring kingdom. Rapunzel takes his satchel and the tiara contained within, and makes a deal with Flynn: if he will take her to see the floating lanterns and return her to her tower, she will give him back his satchel and the tiara. Reluctantly, Flynn agrees.

    After making her way out of the tower, Rapunzel struggles with her emotions: excited to see the world for the first time, but also deeply guilty that she has defied her 'Mother.' Flynn offers to return her, but Rapunzel claims she will be alright.

    Hoping to get her to change her mind, Flynn takes her to a place called The Snuggly Duckling, which is overrun with a group of ruffians. However, the ruffians recognize Flynn as a wanted man of the neighboring kingdom, and send one of their associates to alert the Palace Guards. However, Rapunzel pleads with the men to let Flynn go, and how she needs him to fulfill a dream she's had all her life. This melts the hearts of the ruffians, who each reveal dreams of their own.

    However, the Palace Guards soon enter, and Rapunzel and Flynn escape through a secret passageway. This leads them to a quarry, where Flynn is soon cornered by the Palace Guards, a Palace horse named Maximus, and two of Flynn's cohorts who he attempted to flee from with the tiara.

    As Rapunzel and Flynn attempt to escape Maximu dislodges a piece of wood from a makeshift damn nearby, attempting to use it to walk over a cliff area...only to have the damn break and flood the area. Rapunzel and Flynn make it into a cave, but are soon trapped with rocks cover the entrance, and water from the broken dam begins to fill up the empty space. Feeling that they may soon die, the two then confess a secret to the other: Flynn reveals that his real name is Eugene Fitzherbert, and Rapunzel reveals that her hair glows when she sings. Realizing this can work to their advantage, she quickly sings, and the illumination from her hair allows Flynn to dislodge some of the rocks at the entrace, and the two escape.

    Meanwhile, Mother Gothel has returned from her journey early, and having found Rapunzel gone from the tower, but the satchel and tiara there along with a wanted poster of Flynn, sets out to bring her 'daughter' back. Arming herself with a dagger and trailing the two to the Snuggly Duckling, she soon learns that they have escaped through a tunnel, and manages to find where the tunnel ends. When she gets there, she instead finds Flynn's two cohorts. Hoping to use them to her advantage, she gives them back the satchel and tiara that Flynn had, but claims she knows of something worth much more, and can also help them exact revenge on Flynn Rider.

    As night settles, Flynn and Rapunzel camp for the night, and Rapunzel uses her hair to heal a wound on Flynn's hand from the escape. As they talk, Flynn reveals why he does not go by his given name of Eugene. As an orphan, he was entranced by stories of a thief named Flynn, and the daring to have enough money to go anywhere he wanted intrigued him. Even so, Rapunzel claims that she likes the name Eugene better.

    After Flynn goes off to get some more wood for their fire, Mother Goethel appears to Rapunzel, and intends to take her back to the tower. However, Rapunzel refuses to go. When she claims that she thinks Flynn likes her, Goethel reveals the tiara and satchel, claiming that's all Flynn really cares for. Goethel gives these to Rapunzel and tells her to give them to Flynn to prove her right.

    Fearing that Goethel is telling the truth, Rapunzel hides the items when he returns, and they settle in for the night, with Goethel and Flynn's former cohorts watching from a distance.

    The next day, the horse Maximus finally tracks down Flynn, intending to turn him in. However, Rapunzel convinces Maximus that she needs Flynn to show her the lanterns, and the horse gives in to her 24-hour reprieve. The group then makes their way to the nearby kingdom, where Rapunzel has her hair weaved into an extra-large braid to keep it from getting trampled, and views an intricate tile portrait of the Royal family, including a blonde baby girl.

    As the day wears on, Rapunzel and Flynn grow closer together until it's time for the lantern ceremony. The two take a boat out onto the nearby waters, and are in awe as the lanterns cast a romantic setting upon the water. Rapunzel then reveals the satchel and tiara, but unlike what Goethel told her, Flynn does not seem to care about these. As they watch the lanterns , they then confess their feelings for the other, but before they can kiss, Flynn spots his cohorts on the nearby shore.

    Bringing the boat to shore, Flynn meets his cohorts, and apologizes for his actions, giving them the satchel and the tiara. However, they now claim they don't want it.

    As she waits by the boat, Rapunzel is shocked when the two cohorts approach her, and point out a boat sailing towards the kingdom, with Flynn at the wheel. The two claim he took the crown and left, leaving them to capture Rapunzel and her magical hair. Rapunzel attempts to flee, but is saved when Mother Goethel appears, knocking out the two men. Rapunzel then returns with her Mother, promising never to disobey her again.

    In reality, the two men knocked out Flynn, and lashed him and the tiara to the wheel of the ship. As it arrives at the kingdom's port, Flynn is arrested.

    Back in her tower, Mother Goethel sends Rapunzel to her room, claiming they'll forget everything that happened. However, as she looks around her room and at the sun emblem of the kingdom she obtained while she was there, Rapunzel notices that within a number of her drawings, the same symbol occurs, and she suddenly realizes that she is the missing Princess for whom the lanterns are for!

    Rapunzel goes to Mother Goethel wanting to know the truth. Realizing that she has been lied to all her life, Rapunzel attempts to leave but not before Goethel stops her from going after Flynn, claiming that he has by now been captured by the Palace Guards who most likely will execute him as soon as possible.

    In the kingdom, Flynn is led to the gallows, but stops when he comes across his cohorts, wanting to know what they did to Rapunzel. They claim they were acting under the order of Mother Goethel to get Rapunzel back.

    As Flynn is about to be led into the courtyard gallows, The ruffians from the Snuggly Duckling along with Maximus break Flynn out. Maximus then helps Flynn return to the tower.

    When Rapunzel's hair ascends to the ground, Flynn climbs up it, but is shocked when he sees Rapunzel bound and gagged, and is soon stabbed by Goethel with a dagger. Goethel then leaves Flynn to die, trying to drag Rapunzel out another exit, promising to take her somewhere where noone will find her.

    As she struggles watching Flynn in pain, Rapunzel promises she will go with Goethel without resistance, if she can use her magic hair to save Flynn.

    Goethel agrees, but chains Flynn to keep him from getting away. Flynn begs Rapunzel not to do this, saying that her promise will never allow her to be free. As she attempts to recite the magic incantation, Flynn gets hold of a broken piece of the nearby vanity mirror, cutting off Rapunzel's long hair, breaking its enchantment.

    This then causes Mother Goethel to age quickly, driving her into a state of shock that causes her to fall out the nearby window. Aging several centuries in a matter of seconds, her cloak then hits the forest floor, and all that remains of the vain woman is a a cloud of dust.

    As Rapunzel watches, Flynn dies in her arms. Her eyes filled with tears, she finishes reciting the incantation, even though her hair has now turned to a more natural brown color. However, as a tear falls on Flynn's face, the last magic of the sunflower restores Flynn to health, and the two lovers unite in a kiss.

    Flynn and Rapunzel then return to the kingdom, where Rapunzel is reunited with her parents. Flynn is welcomed into the family, and after a celebration to mark the return of the Princess (in which we see that the ruffians have also fulfilled their own dreams), it is revealed that eventually, Flynn (aka Eugene) and Rapunzel were married soon after.
