10 Funny Flirting Fact from Magazine

1. Flirting is good for you
Studies show that people who flirt have higher white blood-

2. Think it ends at a little eye batting?
Hardly—all told, scientists say there are 52 “flirting signals” used by humans. Of these, the hair flip is the most common.

3. In some places, flirting is illegal
In Little Rock, AR, an antiquated law is still on the books warning that engaging in playful banter may result in a 30-day jail term. In New York City, another outdated law mandates that men may be fined $25 for gazing lasciviously at a female; a second conviction stipulates the offender wear a pair of blinders whenever he goes out for a walk.

4. Why wait for Happy Hour?
Lots of people get their flirt on during their morning commute. A full 62 percent of drivers have flirted with someone in a different vehicle while on the go, and 31 percent of those flirtations, it turns out, resulted in a date.

5. Flirting need not occur face to face
According to Pew Research, 40 percent of people who look for love online say they can easily flirt with someone via email or IM.

6. In the Victorian era, fans were the ultimate playful prop that could communicate all sorts of messages
A fan placed near the heart meant, You have won my love. A half-opened fan pressed to the lips suggested, You may kiss me. Hiding the eyes behind an open fan meant, I love you, while opening and closing the fan several times warned, You are cruel. Given how much a fan could come in handy, it’s a shame they ever invented air conditioning.

7. These days, cell phones do the flirting
In one survey, half of all mobile phone users have texted suggestive messages to keep things interesting while away from his or her amour.

8. Watch out, you can overdo it
According to the Social Issues Research Centre, the most common mistake people make when flirting is maintaining too much eye contact.

9. Sometimes, flirty gestures aren’t what they seem
Research has shown that men tend to routinely mistake friendly behavior for flirting.

10. Flirting is universal
A woman living in New York City and one in rural Cambodia may not have much in common, but when it comes to attracting a little attention, they both employ the very same move: smiling, arching their eyebrows, then averting their gaze and giggling. Animals flirt, too: Birds, reptiles, and even fish have their own ways of strutting their stuff. Moral of the story: If the simple sea bass can act cute to enhance a romantic agenda, you can, too—so give it a go!

New Music Friday

What do you think of the new Coldplay song (our New Music Friday song)...VIVA LA VIDA. Are you a Coldplay fan?

Friday the 13th

It's Friday the 13th. "So what? ", you ask. Well, a lot of people take this sort of thing very seriously. Consider this, More than 80% of hotels and high-rise buildings do not have a 13th floor. You hardly ever see the number 13 in an elevator. Athletes, who are notoriously superstitious, often ask for another number other than 13 on their jerseys. Many airports do not have a Gate 13. Hospitals regularly avoid having a Room 13. In Italy, they omit the number 13 from their national lottery. Many cities do not have a 13th Street or a 13th Avenue. In France, socialites known as “quatorziens” (or “fourteeners”) once made themselves available to keep a dinner party from having 13 guests. The ill-fated Apollo 13 mission to the moon was launched on April 13th at 13:13 local time.

Here's the bottom line. What superstitions, if any, do you believe in.

Tips to help students get through end-of-year exams

Ten tips to help students learn:
1. Encourage students to master the material rather than "learn the material" or aim for a specific grade.
2. Do not focus on "passing the exam"; focus on the challenge of doing the exam well.
3. Do not focus on how your grade will make you look; focus on the material.
4. Do not focus on aspects of intelligence, smarts or stupidity; attend to how to do the task well.
5. Be realistic: if you do not like or understand the material, do not expect exceptional grades.
6. Try to avoid last-minute cramming; do a little every day to avoid the stress of mass studying.
7. Relaxation techniques other than diaphragmatic deep breathing will not work to settle a student down in an exam unless the student has been practising them for a long time.
8. Students with high anxiety should build in relaxation time the evening before an exam.
9. It's OK to be a perfectionist - but only if you're striving to improve yourself, not if you are striving to impress others or obtain a reward.
10. You cannot learn a difficult subject without proper self care, and that includes regular sleep.

Not Handy, Won't Kill Bugs

Dear C100 Breakfast Club

I've got a problem, or maybe it isn't a problem, I don't know.

My boyfriend isn't a man's man. And that's ok. I don't want him to be. He can't fix my car. He can barely hang a painting. But I just realized, he won't even kill a bug for me.

We had a big spider in our apartment the other day and he had me kill it.

Is that the line? I don't believe all men should be handy but shouldn't all men kill bugs for their girlfriends?
