Scientist Develops Special Music that Gives Couples Electrifying Sex

Do you ever wish you had a more exciting and fulfilling love life?

Are you frustrated that the “happily ever after” you once imagined doesn’t include spine-tingling sex with ever-deepening intimacy on a regular basis? Are your sexual encounters ever limited by waning libido, slow or low arousal, or inhibitions that keep you from enjoying wild, spontaneous, orgasmic sex?

You Won’t Believe Which Countries Have The Highest Percentage Of Female Executives: RUSSIA!

There’s certainly a lot of talk about female leaders going on. But perhaps the most unexpected news about women CEOs today isn’t about how much these women make, but rather where they work.

In Grant Thornton’s newly released International Business Report, the accounting firm surveyed about 6,600 private companies in 45 countries to determine where the most women are in senior management positions. The results were unexpected.

The places topping the list with the most females in charge are countries like Russia
, Indonesia, Latvia and the Philippines, where women comprised over 40% of those in senior-level positions.

Russia takes home the gold for the highest proportion of women in these high-level job titles, with 43 percent. Japan lags in last with an embarrassing nine percent.

The United States ranked towards the bottom of the list with just 22 percent of women in senior management, which also falls below the dismal global average of 24 percent.

While the results might seem a little out of wack (Russia is certainly not known for its progressive mindset these days, to say the least), economists are coming forward to say that the findings actually might make sense.

Apparently emerging markets — which include the BRICS of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa — are taking advantage of the various growing opportunities their developing economic systems offer.

Seems like the industrialized world could learn a thing or two about ways to support women in the workforce. With 865 million women poised to enter the working world by 2020, competitive countries will have to rely on the strength of their female CEOs (and those in other top roles) to keep up

Адвокат Плевако (1842 - 1908)

Федор Никифорович Плевако, один из самых известных российских адвокатов, которого современники прозвали «московским златоустом».
Здесь приведены несколько примеров знаменитого красноречия Плевако.

Mогло быть и хуже

Плевако имел привычку начинать свою речь в суде фразой: "Господа, а ведь могло быть и хуже!"
И какое бы дело ни попадало адвокату, он не изменял этой своей фразе.
Однажды Плевако взялся защищать человека, изнасиловавшего собственную дочь.
В газетах поднялась свистопляска - посмеет ли Плевако произнести свою коронную фразу?!
Зал был забит битком, все ждали, с чего же начнёт адвокат свою речь...
Плевако медленно встал и хладнокровно произнес: "Господа, а ведь могло быть и хуже!"
Тут уж не выдержал и сам судья, воскликнув: "Что может быть хуже этой мерзости?"
"Ваша честь
, - ответил Плевако, - а если бы он изнасиловал вашу дочь?"
