Want to live a long life? Keep your family closer to you



Senior citizens who share an intimate bond with family members tend to live longer than those who have just friends around them, claims a new study.
“We found that older individuals who had more family in their network, as well as older people who were closer with their family were less likely to die,” said James Iveniuk, the lead author of the study.
“No such associations were observed for number of or closeness to friends,” Iveniuk, who is also a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Toronto’s Dalla Lana School of Public Health, added.
The study was presented at the 111th Annual Meeting of the American Sociological Association (ASA) organised from August 20-23, in Seattle, Washington.
The researchers found that older adults who reported feeling “extremely close” on average to the non-spousal family members had about a 6% risk of mortality within the next five years, compared to approximately a 14% risk of mortality among those who reported feeling “not very close” to the family members.
Furthermore, the study found that respondents who listed more non-spousal family members in their network — irrespective of closeness — had lower odds of death compared to those who listed fewer family members.


“Regardless of the emotional content of a connection, simply having a social relationship with another person may have benefits for longevity,” Iveniuk said.
Iveniuk said he was surprised that feeling closer to one’s family members and having more relatives as confidants decreased the risk of death for older adults but that the same was not true of relationships with friends.
Iveniuk noted his findings underscore the substantial importance of familial relationships for longevity.

TV Beauties that rocked the bikini

It might be monsoons right now but a bevy of beauties from TV have raised temperatures. Check them out!


Not long ago, TV actresses preferred to dress by their onscreen image. However, that is slowly changing and here is proof. In the past six months, we have seen a number of our TV divas in bikinis. The gals have flaunted their hot bodies/vacation pictures with elan. Check out these beauteous babes and tell us whom you found the sexiest!


Sonarika Bhadoria
The lady has moved on from TV to films down South but people still identify her as Parvati. When she posted a snap in a red bikini top and floral sarong chilling on the pristine beaches on the Maldives, she faced a lot of hate mail. People were aghast at how a ‘divine figure’ could pose in a swimsuit. The lady replied them tersely and rightly so.


Mouni Roy
She has millions of followers on Instagram courtesy her gorgeous pictures with her style game bang on. A few days after Sonarika’s controversy, Mouni posted snaps of her Goa holiday. The lady looks cute in the swimsuit that she has matched with a friend. Talk about co-ordination!


Nia Sharma
Voted as one of the sexiest Asian Women on the planet by her followers, Nia Sharma is a total stunner. The lady is not afraid to flaunt her hot body in the most risky outfits. On her recent Dubai break, she posed in a hot pink Victoria’s Secrets bikini and a pale powder blue one-piece swimsuit. Sassy, confident and stylish, Nia rocked the bikini and how!


Jasmin Bhasin
Now, this swimsuit outing really surprised us. We know Jasmin as the drop dead gorgeous Twinkle from Tashan E Ishq but the gal made our jaws drop with her stunning snaps from her Bali holiday. She has flaunted the bikini (black, blue and pink) with aplomb and posted some truly aesthetic and fun pictures. Way to go, girl!


Natasa Stankovic
Remember Natasa Stankovic from Bigg Boss? The Serbian beauty was also seen in the video DJ Wale Babu. The lovely gal has posted bikini pictures from a lovely holiday in Greece and we are totally flat. With the lovely tresses, sun-kissed body and happy smile, she is looking every inch a tropical diva.


Anita Hassanandani
If it’s Maldives, there has to be a bikini. This is the mantra Anita Hassanandani swears by. Check out this bikini picture with her cute husband in Prisma. We were floored in her cute pink avatar in her Bali vacay but this one’s hotter.

Heath Ledger's father reveals his son's tragic last words





When Heath Ledger died in 2008, just months before the world got to see his sneering, paint smeared face in the role that would define him, the world was left in mourning. Now, 8 years after his tragic passing due to an accidental overdose or prescription drugs, Ledger’s father Kim spoke about his son’s struggles and the last words he said to his sister.
“It was totally his fault. It was no one else’s. He reached for them. He put them in his system. You can’t blame anyone else in that situation,” Kim told Daily Mail Australia. “That’s hard to accept because I loved him so much and was so proud of him.”
Ledger was found in his New York apartment after having wrapped shooting on The Dark Knight, the film that would earn him his posthumous Oscar for his performance as The Joker. He was in the middle of production on Terry Gilliam’s The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, the strenuous shooting schedule leaving him drained.
“There’s so much pressure on them to perform so even though your body is telling you that it’s not good and needs time, it’s like ‘just take these painkillers and keep going,’” Kim said. “That was the case with Heath. He had to be back on set to finish (the next day). They were doing night shoots in the freezing cold and he had a weak chest anyway. He’d caught this (cough) and just couldn’t shake it but he thought he had to because he wanted to get the movie done.”
Kim said that Ledger’s sister spoke to Heath the night before and warned him not to mix drugs. “He said, ‘Katie, Katie, I’m fine. I know what I’m doing.’ He would have had no idea,” said Kim.

10 Salman Khan expressions that can easily replace the Emojis





Call him Bajrangi Bhaijaan or Sultan, these expressions of Salman Khan are bound to make you fall in love with him all over again...

We’re sure you all must have come across people whose laughter is funnier than the joke. Salman Khan is one of them. Believe us, it’s difficult to stop your laughter while seeing him cackling. Salman and Anushka Sharma had come on The Kapil Sharma Show to promote Sultan . For once it wasn’t Kapil’s antics, but Salman’s expressions that made us ROFL. Salman seemed to be in the best of his moods as he danced and laughed throughout the show. He also did the famous Jag Ghoomeya’ dance step on the floor.
The carefree Salman is not of the types who would hold back his laughter. He laughs like no one’s looking which is why many people compare his laughter to that of babies. This was not the first time that Kapil made him go crazy laughing. During the promotions of Jai Ho too we had seen the superstar rolling on the floor holding his stomach. The funny moments created by Ali Asgar, Sunil Grover and Kiku Sharda had left the superstar completely insane.
With his expressive face, we think Salman can give emoticons a tough competition. We are sure this post will make many fans use his pictures instead of the regular smileys. We think Whatsapp owners should definitely have a look at these.
