Relationships in the UK : Some Things Change, Some Stay The Same

Casting one’s mind back to the “good old days” – were they really so good? The results of a recent study of Women’s Institute members indicate a belief that UK couples are better off these days than they were thirty years ago, however today’s consumer culture is also thought to contribute to the stress and pressure faced by couples in the current day and age.

How much has changed in thirty years and how much has remained the same? While our parents may recall the good old days of courting and wooing, meeting the parents and marriage before sex, a survey of WI members indicates that 65% of respondents believe couples today are much better off than they were thirty years ago. The study, conducted by eHarmony, reveals that the sample of 300 WI members aged 40-80 thought that their children’s relationships are better off today as a result of less pressure from family and society than in previous generations.

The study found that 90% of women remember money or the lack of as being the biggest stress of relationships thirty years ago. Yet in spite of increased salaries and double incomes for many couples, 84% still cite money as the biggest stress on relationships today. Work and career imposes more stress in a relationship today than thirty years ago but surprisingly it is how we spend our hard earned cash that causes many problems for today’s couples. Just 18% of WI members feel that material possessions caused relationship problems thirty years ago. In 2010, that figure has more than doubled to 45%.

Dr Gian Gonzaga, Ph.D, Senior Research Scientist for eHarmony.co.uk explains: “Irrespective of how society develops, we will always need to work to provide for ourselves and our loved ones, so finances and work will always be constants in our lives. However it is interesting to note that what we do with our hard earned cash is causing more stress on our relationships today than thirty years ago. Could this be a new relationship stress actually caused by consumerism?” Other survey results indicate the belief that young couples today simply don’t work hard enough at their relationships, something that perhaps if they were married, they would do. Marriage is generally considered as important for society and the Government is encouraged to support marriage through pragmatic measures like better tax breaks for married couples.

From dating in Birmingham to marriage in London, eHarmony.co.uk has developed scientific models of compatibility prediction catered for the United Kingdom. eHarmony’s Compatibility Matching System™ was created through a partnership with a multi-disciplinary research team from Oxford University’s Oxford Internet Institute. While eHarmony.co.uk caters specifically for dating UK, the eHarmony Labs use current psychological literature and psychometric theory to investigate and understand what makes relationships successful. Dr Gian Gonzaga, the senior director of research and development at eHarmony Labs, is a world-renowned expert in the field of compatibility, relationships and marriage.

Katy Perry Sparkles in Vegas For Her Hen Night Organised By Rihanna

When the news spread out that Russell Brand and Katy Perry were soon to be getting married, no-one could imagine what a merging of two famous wacky celebrities would look like. So you can actually picture what Perry’s Hen night would resemble if her close friend Rihanna were to have host it? Surely we’re not the only ones struggling to contemplate this wild pair pulling out the stops for a girlie event to remember.

The Cirque Du Soleil theme was picked by Rihanna because she wanted the Hen night to be trendy enough to rival the couple’s impending marriage ceremony in India. It seems she did her role as the ‘Hostess with the Mostest’ proud as 25 guests partied at Las Vegas Hard Rock Hotel Beach Club complete with an abundance of alcohol and rude designed cakes. Perry, Rihanna and their respective companions later swapped their bikinis for evening dresses and ventured off to the Cirque du Soleil production of Ka at the MGM Grand Hotel in no less than a hummer limousine.

Soon after posing for some pictures together with the cast backstage, the night appeared to have only started. What else could we expect for Katy Perry’s Hen Night? The night ensued with dinner, dancing VIP at the XS Lounge followed by a private dance by a Busty Blonde for Perry in Sapphire strip club, Rihanna most likely sensed her best friend needed a little more luxury away from the public eye and so the 25 ladies ventured off to a exclusive sky box for what we can only imagine to be some kind of shamelessly outrageous antics. Since of course the bride to be is no one other than the Russell Brand’s bride-to-be…The Hen Night extravaganza appeared to be completely wild enough for Perry to forget that her fiancée was meant to be in on the action, confirmed by her morning tweet ‘Signing up for a liver transplant…What a night’.

Indeed what a night Perry’s hen turned out to be, even without having Brand at the event because he had been busted the previous day at LAX airport for attacking a photographer for trying to grab a shot of Perry’s underskirt. If only a lot more Hen Parties could be like a 5th of exactly what Perry’s must have been like. If only we all got Rihanna as a Host, and Brand as a fiancée…okay enough fantasizing, we wonder how Brand will get the best of himself, not to mention his fiancée at his substantially awaited Stag Night….we shudder to think just what debauchery will occur with Noel Gallagher already on the guest list which is certain to be star-studded. Brand will have to go above his reputation for being a die-hard partier in order to set the trend for all Stag Party’s to come.

Unless Rihanna is your best friend take a look at our Hen Weekends packages, completely organsied from start to finish leaving only fun & wonderful memories for you and your friends.

Dungeon of Doom Chicago’s Number One Customer Rated Haunted House Reopens For 2010 Season With Freaky Twist

Dungeon of Doom – right in your face maximum intensity haunted attraction opens Friday September 24th, 2010 in the Haunted Warwick Building! The thrill begins the moment you step out of your car.

Located 2701 Deborah Ave in Zion, Illinois – right in the middle of Chicago and Milwaukee. This is a must see season attraction. Dungeon of Doom is the number one customer rated haunted house in the Chicago land area and soon to be recognized as Milwaukee’s final destination for a Premium Haunted Attraction. This very popular attraction has a massive customer base of 12,000 – 15,000 attending each season, with thousands more visiting for the first time.

The Dungeon of Doom has become so popular that last season they moved from the Lake County Fairgrounds to a permanent building in Zion offering 37000 square feet of thrills and chills with towering ceilings and multiple levels.

The Attraction begins in a theatrical Gateway with 6 portals and multiple passageways to an incredibly engineered environment that scare on many different levels. “Claustrophobia, is our greatest accomplishment”, says owner Peter Koklamanis, “ and although we have many areas capturing this fearful sense the greatest attraction being offered is Buried Dead or Alive. “Others have attempted this effect but we are the only ones in the world that risked the complexity of this effect to make it one that no one forgets.”

The Legendary Dungeon of Doom has been running since 1997. It was started by 3 guys with a whole lot of imagination. Koklamanis elaborates – “We were the pioneers in the professional Haunted House industry and we re-invested a major portion of our potential in Pocket profits back into the attraction. Year after year the creativity developed into something some people would call DISTURBING. Although as owners we pride our drive to please our customers, it is the performers that come in every night and sweat tears into those customers that allows our Attraction to be the well oiled machine it is today. For anyone who has worked a season or all 14 seasons at the Dungeon of Doom our hats are off to your contributions and to our success.”

There is no limit to what your experience will be once you enter the turn of the century Haunted Warwick Building in Zion IL. The Dungeon of Doom staffs about 80 or more actors per night. From the moment you get out of your car you have psychotic creatures and deranged beings hunting you down. They will chase you down making sure that you get your moneys worth. Not recommended for children under 13 years of age.

Santa Claus Announces Letters From Santa Helper for 2010 is Marty The Mouse

Santa revealed a long kept secret during a recent interview about the handling of Christmas letters from Santa for 2010. Many of the letters that are received at the North Pole are organized and maintained by mice. Elves have been given credit for helping Santa in every aspect of Christmas preparation. Some people may be shocked to learn that it is Christmas Mice that help with the Santa letters. In further discussion Santa disclosed that Marty the Mouse is his top choice for Santa letter helper in 2010.

In an interview with the North Pole Gazette, Santa disclosed that letters to Santa start to pour into the North Pole in September each and every year and the letters from Santa have to roll right back out as fast as they come in. Santa said he knew there was no way he could answer and mail out all the letters required. He used to worry because he didn’t want even one of those special letters to Santa to go overlooked. Santa Claus said that each letter he received was special and each one deserved a response. According to him, writing and sending personalized letters from Santa are a huge part of his job.

But before Santa can respond to the letters he has to organize them. His elves are too busy making toys and baking treats to help out with the Christmas letters. Santa had to find someone to help with this important task.

Santa looked to the many animals that lived around the North Pole. Sometimes the birds and fish would help with the delivery of Santa letters to the hard to reach places. The problem was these animals prefer to be outdoors and the letters were inside, where they could stay nice and dry. Suddenly Santa realized that he had hundreds if not thousands of animals who could help him organize all his Christmas letters. Of course, all the mice that lived at the North Pole with him and Mrs. Claus would be perfect. The mice liked to be inside where they stayed warm and cozy. Their size had always kept the mice from being able to help out with much of Santa’s work. This job however was perfect for even the smallest mouse.

Music Career Special Report Helps Bands To Make Their Live Shows More Successful

Tom Hess Music Corporation announces the release of a free new music career special report that helps musicians and bands to attract a higher number of fans to their gigs and to advance the band’s career further with each live show.

“In addition to having played at world tours in front of audiences of 30,000+ people, I also work with musicians and bands from around the world helping them to get the most from their live shows and expand their music careers”, says Tom Hess – a world renowned music career mentor and touring guitarist.

He continues: “One of the most common challenges that bands have is attracting a large number of fans to attend their gigs. One of the reasons for this problem is due to the band putting too much of its focus only into its music and not enough on improving the actual performance of that music. Although the problem of not having enough people coming out to see a band’s gigs is a common one, there are several fairly simple solutions that can be used to overcome this challenge. Since I am asked about this issue a lot, I have published a free special report about how to get more people to attend a band’s live show in order to answer this multifaceted question in detail.”

The report reveals that in order to get more people to attend a band’s live shows, it is necessary to focus not only on promotion of the gig but also on several elements of a band’s stage presence, performance practicing, making the band’s shows special enough to make them appealing to watch, plus a lot more.

Fallon and Felisha’s New Single ‘Lights Out’ to Hit Digital Stores September 28, 2010!

A new single, “Lights Out”, will be released September 28, 2010 by recording artists Fallon and Felisha. “Lights Out” is a club-banging, fist-pumping tribute to being young and alive. It sets the party mood for anyone who wants to dance and embrace the moment. As Fallon describes it, “It’s one of my favorite songs to perform. I think our fans will appreciate the energy!”

Fallon and Felisha have had an impact on the music industry for many years. They started their careers alongside their sisters, Farrah and Neosha, in the popular R&B group, Cherish. Their debut album “Unappreciated”, received much critical acclaim. It was certified gold and debuted at number four on the Billboard 200, making them one of only a few R&B girl groups to hit the charts top five in almost a year. Their hit single, “Do It To It,” landed the number twelve spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 and was listed on many other Billboard charts including the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs.

The twins are currently building on the success and experience they had with the group Cherish and are now expanding their artistic genius toward a broader audience. In Felisha’s words,” I’ve always had a love and passion for pop music. Music, to me, is supposed to reflect who you really are, reaching across genres, and relating to individuals from all walks of life”.

Through their lyrics, they share insight into being young and dealing with relationships. They are inspired by an eclectic mix of artists, and drawing upon that inspiration they are ready to relate to a diverse group of people. In this new decade of a continuously changing music industry, Fallon and Felisha are ready to begin a new era.

The new single “Lights Out” will be available for downloads on iTunes, Amazon Mp3, Rhapsody, Napster, MySpace, eMusic and www.fallonandfelisha.com online store. The official website is also set to launch September 28, 2010.

Virgin Holds The Gold At The End Of The Rainbow Riches

The team at Rainbow Riches Slot had another exciting week down at Slots towers, the emphasis was on testing the operators featured on the site to ensure they were all worthy of their site positioning. They pulled on their back packs, stuck some Stone Roses on the iPod and off they trotted to see if they could find a Pot of Gold at the end of the rainbow, hoping they might be able to eat from Tesco this week instead of Farm Foods.

Site Author Blake explains, “Once we’d managed to get out of the bedroom we noticed that there was a glass of water sitting on the dinner table in front of the bay window in our living room. The sun was catching the tumbler in such a way as to cast a spectrum of rainbow coloured light across the desk in the corner, where the laptop sat. Was this a message from the great Leprechaun himself? Had we been blessed with a rainbow at this early stage in our quest as some kind of indicator that our Pot of Gold could be hiding somewhere in the laptop? Our thoughts started racing and one of our task team suggest that this could be some kind of sign”

The Rainbow Riches Slot team has various authors including Blake, all specialising in the Online gaming fraternity, the site is written by online slots fans for Slots fans, which certainly helps to give any budding player an impartial view of the overall playing experience.

Blake Continues “So, without further ado we fired up the beloved laptop with its sticky keys and its vile touch pad mouse, and waited for Windows to load. We quickly sparked up good old Internet Explorer, typed in our URL “Rainbowrichesslot.com” and within seconds our homepage, had loaded up. We looked on the site and saw the featured Casino is Virgin with an enticing opening free deposit bonus of £100. We didn’t need any more persuasion and we were soon pulling out our credit cards from our wallets, as we were all desperate to cash in on this obviously fortuitous scene.

After making a minimum deposit with the Virgin Casino we were off to play our favourite Rainbow Riches slot, Rainbow Riches Wing Big Shindig. So there we were, sitting at the game and we made our first spin. Three spins in and still no win and the murmurs of discontent amongst the team were becoming an audible groan, morale had reached such a low point that we thought we might not be able to continue on. Someone somehow managed to pull out a weary hand and crawled it, finger by finger across the desk to use their last iota of hope to hit the mouse button and activate the spin. With disbelieving eyes we watched as three Leprechauns hit on the pay line and took us into the Pots of Luck bonus round.

We won’t bore you with details of quite how much we won but needless to say we weren’t eating just shamrocks and lucky charms for dinner that evening. The next morning we called up our editor”, CM Jones and told her the story of our day. She said:

“It’s no surprise you guys had such a good time playing Rainbow Riches with the guys down at Virgin Slots. The player experience is truly fantastic and this simply epitomises the whole Virgin philosophy, it’s simply no wonder why we have them as our featured number one casino on our site, we have even teamed up with Virgin Casino to offer our players a chance of an extra £200 in their pocket each month.”

Player Hits over €20,000 at Jackpot Games’ Casino

Jackpot Games’ casino revealed details of its first big winner today, marking the company’s growth since its launch in April 2010. The Malta-based firm celebrated with the player after confirming the €20,000 win came from a single slot machine spin.

The lucky player, Miss N.R of London, hit €20,142 on the Devil’s Delight slot machine at around 4pm on August 20th, just half an hour after her first spin. She then went on to further wins on other slot machines after that. She was contacted immediately by the casino to confirm her win and to start the process of paying her. Her accomplishment is all the more remarkable for the fact it was her first ever visit to Jackpot Games casino, having made her first deposit  just a few short minutes before winning. It was a truly lucky day for the player, as the casino reported her entire session had a payout percentage of over 215%.

Ramon Azzopardi, Jackpot Games CEO, commented, “Miss N.R’s experience at Jackpot Games goes to show the house doesn’t always win, and that these big single wins actually do happen. We would like to say a big congratulations to her again and wish her all the best for the future.”

Miss N.R was delighted with her win at Jackpot Games, saying “I’ve had such a wonderful time playing at your casino and I’m very excited about my win! We have now decided to take a big trip away over the winter and this truly has changed my life. Thank you Jackpot Games for giving me a lot more opportunities from now on!”

She went on to say that her “heart was racing” during her win, which was triggered by the Devil’s Delight free spins bonus, “All of a sudden all the screen lit up and I didn’t really know what was going on. I then looked at the balance and it said 20 odd thousand. I could not believe it! My heart was racing and I had to keep looking to see if it was still there. We have now decided to take a big trip away over the winter and this truly has changed my life. Thank you Jackpot Games for giving me a lot more opportunities from now on!”

Azzopardi said, “Miss N.R’s experience at Jackpot Games is indicative of just how far our online casino has come in the first four months of operation. From receiving our first players to welcoming high rollers capable of such big wins demonstrates the appeal of the casino and the trust the casino has garnered among our players in such a short amount of time. We’re delighted with the progress and the promise it has shown and we’re confident of further growth and even bigger player wins soon.

Jackpot Games boasts over 85 instant play casino games, including 31 unique slot games, including the acclaimed Devil’s Delight – the machine behind this win.  Miss N.R’s experience is all the more notable because in most online casinos such single wins are normally the preserve of dedicated casino games known as progressive jackpot slots. These contain a side pot where an element of each bet is placed, allowing the pot to grow to extraordinary amounts. With such progressive games as well as video slots like Devil’s Delight, big wins are sure to become a feature of Jackpot Games’ casino.
