Hollywood Weekly Magazine's Nollywood Feature

Joseph Benjamin In Tyler Perry Movie Competition: Awww...Awww...This Is So Touching Guys - Check Out His Audition & Please Vote For Him


Hi guys, please first of all, click on the You Tube link below and you'd understand why this is so touching :(  


http://www.youtube.com/tylerperrystudios?x=us_showcase_4987_7


Seriously, I am in floods of tears right now; more so, because this was totally unexpected. Joe didn't even tell me that he was doing this. I was awake all night working, when a notification from his Facebook status very early this morning, flashed across my screen, with a message from him asking people to please vote for him. 


I assumed Joe was referring to NEA Awards: Pls Vote 4 Joseph, Kunle, Nse, DJ Abass etc, so didn't give it much thought. It was about 4am and I remembered that it had been almost two weeks since we chatted last on BB and I never had the time to finish that conversation, which was very important, so I seized the moment to call him. I told him how it was a good thing I noticed him when I did and he started talking about the competition and said that he didn't want to bug me, because he knew I'd been very busy writing and working very hard almost non-stop since the beginning of this month, and noticed that my blogging had reduced. He further echoed the words of everyone close to me (which I always ignore anyway :D), advising me to please take it easy and try and get some rest. Btw, you'd all soon understand why my blogging has slowed down, so please bear with me in the meantime, as I have been doing everything alone since last month...after I was hacked. If you notice, you'd no longer find anything to do with the Hollywood Weekly Magazine feature on this blog. I put the cover in this post to remind you of how internationally appealing Joe is. 


Assuming Joe was referring to the NEA Awards, I laughed and said I could never be too busy for my stars and had already published it everywhere almost two weeks ago. That was when he informed me that this was another competition for a role in Tyler Perry's movie which would end in 2 days (29th) and I clicked on the link on his status as we spoke, meaning to check it out after our phone call. By the time I got off the phone, it was almost time for school run and as the day wore on, I continued working, completely forgetting about Joe's competition. I just decided to close some of my numerous open pages, when I saw the link and remembered I was supposed to check it out. 


Now that you have listened to it, you can understand how I feel. It's funny how we forget some talents that people close to us have. A lot of you don't know that Joe used to be a musician before he ventured into acting; in fact I remember he had a band or so. What you heard in that audition was nothing and that was the 'nervous Joe' you saw. Joe sings real powerful ballads that would give you goose bumps...and when I saw powerful, I mean Usher or R.Kelly type. People close to him will testify to this fact...just like London X Factor addicts would tell you that Tiwa Sawage can sing Whitney powerful ballads. Because she now does more of pop songs, you'd only understand if you hear her sing a ballad. I once asked Joe what was happening to his music, and he said he wanted to concentrate on his acting for now, so I forgot about it. 


Joe is one of the most ambitious people I know, yet he is so modest, so humble, so simple...yet, so cool...you'd just keep realising every time, how deeply talented he is. Seeing him sing like that, I could tell how much that audition meant to him. Joe has tried to keep his singing talent under wraps all this while, so it was deeply touching to watch him relent on that decision for the sake of this audition...and he just had soppy old me :(


The competition is going to end in about 36 hours and although Joe knows I would definitely have helped if he had informed me about this earlier, he wasn't going to ask me to help cos he was worried about my already heavy workload. He has been doing this almost everyday for two weeks on his Facebook status and I never noticed until this morning...and forgot about it all day. Please guys, help me spread the word until this message goes VIRAL; he has only had 567 views so far. Fellow bloggers, I am going to bug you tonight, tomorrow...and remember...I have your numbers, so if you don't wanna be stalked...hehehe ;) :)


Many thanks in advance to everyone and God bless you.

Kareena Kapoor Has No Place For Insecurity In Her Life


Latest news is that Kareena is insecure about Bipasha shooting with Saif . When asked by TOI, Kareena laughed off the rumours. Here’s what she said:

"Insecurity is an emotion that has no place in my life. And I am going to Turkey because I want to spend quality time with Saif. Also it is vacation time for us," said Kareena. She further says, " I encourage Saif to please work with everybody. He is free to work with whoever he wants to, it is not my concern. Even I am free to work with whoever I want, Saif never interferes".

"My career will always be the way it is. Work is my passion. Both Saif and I are very urban and contemporary in our thoughts. We have our own space, he does his own thing. We don't even discuss work and I don't think Saif has ever asked me which film I am doing. He probably gets to know from the newspapers and magazines (laughs). If I am in a meeting, he doesn't even ask me who I had a meeting with. He is the most supportive man I could have asked for."

Talking about Kareena Kapoor, Freida Pinto says: "Now, it seems to me, even taking Indian cinema in consideration, I feel like this year we have kind of experienced a shift in humanity. In India, actually, there has been a large disparity in how much a female and male actor gets paid, but this year, one actress changed all that,"

She also wants to meet Kareena during her next trip to India, as she’s a big fan and has watched Kurbaan several times on DVD.

“It will have to be Kiaan Kapoor,” said Kareena Kapoor
“He is my sister’s (Karisma) son. He is the most good looking man in my life right now. He has rosy cheeks, big eyes, and the most amazing lips, so it is obviously his face that I love to see every day,” added the 31-year-old.

Sony Vaio Laptops brand ambassador is Kareena Kapoor. The actress was at the launch of its new campaign – spark a trend.

Talking about the Indian film industry, she says, “I am a member of the Indian film industry. I come from the Kapoor family. Acting is in my blood. This industry has given me everything. There is nothing more I could have asked for.”

Kangana Ranaut Will Never Marry Her UK Based Doctor - "I will have to be really unhappy with myself to get married"


In an interview to Stardust, Kangana spoke about her relationship with UK based doctor, Nicholas Lafferty. “It has been almost two years now,” she said. “He keeps coming to India and I go for holidays with him. We’re young and we’re loving where we are today. This long-distance relationship works perfectly for us, contrary to popular belief.”

When asked if she plans to tie the knot anytime soon, she responds: 


“I don’t believe in marriage. In fact, I am strictly against marriage. We are all born free and we should set each other free. Just because I am going out with someone, doesn’t mean that I have to marry the person. So what if I am seeing someone? When you can just live with the person and be happy, why would you want to ruin a relationship? It doesn’t make sense to make things legal and tie someone down. I’d never do that", she says animatedly.

"I will have to be really unhappy with myself to get married”,  she ends.

It will be directed by Robert Jason.

In a statement, the superstar said: 


“All people are very important to me. I’ve been fortunate to make friends and learn about very different lives.

We want to stop the hate and find understanding”.

Orvillecopter: Dutch Artist Turns His Dead Cat, Orville, Into A Helicoper. (See Videos)

Orvillecopter the flying cat
A Dutch artist has turned his dead cat Orville into a helicopter, which he calls the Orvillecopter.

Bart Jansen had his pet stuffed after he was hit by a car before enlisting the help of radio control helicopter flier Arjen Beltman to build the unique machine.
The Orvillecopter - "half cat, half machine" - is now on show at the Kunstrai art festival in Amsterdam, the Dutch capital.
Mr Jansen said after a period of mourning he decided to pay tribute to Orville, named after the famous aviator Orville Wright, with the art project.
The Orvillecopter does not fly quite right, but Mr Jansen said he will receive more powerful engines and larger propellers for his birthday, allowing for a more "steady flight".
He said Orville will soon be "flying with the birds".
"Oh how he loved birds" he said. "He will receive more powerful engines and larger props for his birthday. So this hopping will soon change into steady flight".

FACEBOOK OF COOKWARE





For years we have been cooking in pots and pans that leech poison (metal & components) into our foods. Please click on these links below for more info about the dangers of non stick, aluminium, stainless steel or other pans. 




If the info you just read hasn't SHOCKED you enough, perhaps you need to do a Google search to convince yourself further.

Traditional and conventional ways of cooking our foods also destroy the nutrients from our foods. No wonder we suffer from diet related illnesses and conditions such as diabetes, obesity, heart diseases, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, stroke, cancer, etc.  You may be shocked to hear that DIET is the number one (1) cause of cancer, after......wait for it.....TOBACCO (see the Cancer Project). This is where our cookware come in.

When you eat healthy food, you look better, feel better and live longer. Our Healthy Cooking System is more than just cookware, it's a commitment to a better quality of life.
PRESERVING YOUR HEALTH!
For years, we have been cooking in ways that strip vitamins and minerals from our foods. Water, high heat, steaming, microwave, peeling and oxidation drain foods of essential nutrients and oil adds unwanted fat.

When it comes to your family's health, you want the very best. Our Health System promotes healthier lifestyles in the kitchen. Our cookware cooks food without adding excess water or oil and using low heat. With low heat, water-free cooking, your foods will retain more of their natural vitamins, minerals, texture and flavor. 

Our customers tell us once they switched to our cookware, their appetites decreased because their vitamin and mineral intake increased. Their bodies were simply telling them they were satisfied with less food. Our bodies do not need foods but the vitamins and minerals contained in the foods. Once our bodies get their required intake of nutrients, our appetite decreases. So no more overfeeding, with its associated health issues. 
VERSA LOC
No more problems stacking your cookware and fitting them neatly into your cabinets. Storing has never been easier than with our exclusive, Versa Loc detachable Handle System. Plus it provides for convenient stove to table service turning a pan into an elegant serving piece with just a click. Clean up and storage are a breeze also. Simply remove the handles and place in the dishwasher or cabinets. Best of all, Versa Loc handles are safer and stronger than traditional handle technology.
   
 VAPO VULVE
Our Cookware features the patented Vapo Valve, which takes the guesswork out of cooking. When the temperature inside reaches the desired temperature (86 degrees celcius) for preparing foods without harming the nutritional aspects, the Vapo Valve begins to click, alerting you to turn down the temperature to the lowest heat on the cooker. No need to open the lid or stir the food to prevent scorching or burning. The convenient Vapo Valve eliminates the need for stirring or constant "pot watching".

WHY SEMI VACUUM COOK (SOUS-VIDE)?

Sous-vide is the practice of cooking food at low temperatures in vacuum-packed plastic bags. (The term is essentially French for "vacuum-packed.") This method of cooking is intended to maintain the integrity of ingredients by heating them for an extended period of time at relatively low temperatures. Food is cooked for a long time, sometimes well over 24 hours. 

Sous-vide cooking uses airtight plastic bags placed in hot water well below boiling point (usually around 60°C or 140°F). However, cooking in plastic bags pose some health concerns and does not sound to healthy to me.  Also, it takes a long period of time.

Start Healthy Semi vacuum (sous-vide) cooking in 316TI cookware and keep more of the flavor in foods and cook it faster! Get the best of vacuum cooking fast!

NUTRITION

Semi-vacuum is a very healthful way to cook food. Food cooked the semi-vacuum way is a reduced oxygen environment with little added water and cooked at low temperatures. The three elements - heat, oxygen and water, most responsible for reducing the nutritional content of conventionally prepared foods, are of much lesser scale in semi-vacuum style cooking.
Cooking in a vacuum, oxidation is significantly reduced, preserving the qualities of essential polyunsaturated fatty acids. Moisture and flavours are also preserved in the same manner. Cooking semi-vacuum is all about using less of everything - fat, oil, salt, spices and water; these all translate into foods with more retained natural minerals and essential vitamins.
As with all foods, freshness and minimal processing intervals, greatly affect the nutritional profile. Food items prepared using semi-vacuum highlight fresh textures and lively flavors, making healthy food more interesting to consume. 

Because dishes are richer in taste, semi-vacuum cooking appeals to the palate, while still maintaining valuable nutritional properties of fresh, wholesome foods.
Cooking at lower temperatures for a shorter time is the essence of semi-vacuum cooking and has many benefits: 

• Foods retain their natural moisture better, shrink less and make more tender. • Natural flavour, color and aroma are retained for better sensual values. 

• Healthy minerals and vitamins are not destroyed during semi-vacuum cooking process. 

• Recipes can be easily repeated with consistent results. 

Reduce food costs - less food wastage, better yield due to less food shrinkage, better utilization of food ingredients, including tougher cuts of meat. 

• Reduce energy - semi-vacuum cooking simply requires less energy to cook and make kitchen environment cleaner and cooler.
