You need the faucet replaced on the master bathroom sink, but it's been a long week. Your partner is exhausted, but probably not too exhausted (wink, wink). You bust your move, and 30 minutes later, you're out getting a manicure while your husband installs the new faucet. This is 'Git Er Done Sex.'"

Are you fair-skinned, and want to look tanned?
I'm being slightly disingenuous in answering this request, because my honest belief is, "don't bother".
Fair skin is useful. It allows the body to create vitamin D with much less sunlight than darker-skinned people need.
But of course, fair-skinned people have pale skin. They often also have blue eyes and blonde or red hair.

"Abortion is a subject that seems to arouse great passion and feeling, on all sides of the debate. And the debate often gets very aggressive, with people on both sides so convinced that they are right, positions move further apart and any real understanding is further than ever away.
In terms of seeking common ground, I want to consider times where I think everyone would agree that abortion is justified, and I'd be interested to know what other people think. This is not an article about abortion on demand, unwanted but healthy pregnancies, or late abortion. It is, instead, about those pregnancies which go horribly wrong."
The acai berry and the juice produced from it is big news at the moment. Touted as everything from a miracle weight-loss aid to a wonderful anti-oxidant superfood, the acai berries are big business right now. And this has caused lots of internet users to get spam telling them they can lose X pounds a week, burn fat, and feel great.
I don't sell any acai products, or invest in anyone who sells such stuff. This review is from my own research, as I looked into the products and the science quite carefully when deciding whether or not to take it myself. So rest assured, I'm not trying to flog you some dodgy supplements or pills!
So what are the facts? What is the evidence about the real benefits, if any, of the acai berry and the juice and supplements produced and marketed so avidly at the moment?
And what are the myths? What scams are out there, and how can you avoid them?
This article looks at the truth behind the acai hype.
