Friends with … regrets?

Filed under: Celebrities,pop culture,Psychology — posted by Breakup Girl @ 11:56 am

Two new movies starring four very attractive people pose the questions: (1) Can “friends with benefits” arrangements work? and (2) Natalie Portman?! On (1) I’m leaning no, if only on the grounds that I would definitely fall for Justin Timberlake.

But Tracy Clark-Flory of Salon.com gives the matter deeper consideration. But her bottom line is basically this: “When you talk to people who have been there and done that — and even those who are continuing to do that — the response is overwhelmingly negative. As my own former ‘friend with benefits’ put it, ‘I’ve been in so many of these situations and, basically, they work until they don’t.'”

Read the rest (Tracy does a bunch of reporting and covers a lot of thoughtful ground) and let us know what you think: Does FWB ever benefit anyone? Under what particular circumstances? Share away, ’cause don’t worry; we won’t expect anything more from you than a good time. 😉

  9. Online Slots Regulation In Alberta

    The responsibility for supervising and regulating
    gambling businesses in Alberta lies on the local gaming and liquor commission (also known as AGLC).
    In its turn, the organization is comprised of
    two departments: the Corporation and the Board.
    The Corporation represents the functional mechanism of the system,
    while the Board carries the governmental policy into
    effect through the triggers under its control. The organization elaborates the strategic directions and policies as well as delivers the implementation in conjunction with the largest financial institutions of Canada.
    AGLC is empowered to ensure the compliance of local gambling businesses with the fundamental principles
    indicated in Criminal Code as well as the documents adopted by the organization itself.

    In fact, the organization holds the power to license, regulate and monitor
    games of chance activities located in Alberta. The province
    occupies the second position in the list of the major Canadian gambling provinces, ceding the leadership role to
    Ontario. The organization is characterized by a relatively loyal (by the standards of Canada) attitude towards gambling activities and/or enterprises,
    looking forward to conduct their business in Alberta.
    Therefore, AGLC adopted a far-famed charitable license
    model that helps dozens of organizations to raise funds for
    a particular project.

  11. Online Casino Canada: Responsible Gambling

    The year of 2004 heralded the era of new attitude towards gambling organization and virtually all the stakeholders involved in gambling activities.
    A large cohort of non-profit establishments, gambling providers and regulators united their
    efforts towards transparent and responsible gambling in Canada within the framework of CPRG, or the Canadian Partnership for Responsible Gambling.

    Initially, the organization aimed at gathering comprehensive info
    on a broad variety of gambling aspects across Canada, and the result of the effort was the release of the gambling
    digest, now published annually. The digest includes statistical data on the state of affairs
    in each Canadian province: from overall revenues and quantitative characteristics on gambling businesses to revenue distribution and highly
    specialized data.

    The digest itself represents a nicely crafted document with
    dozens of tables, charts and trends that characterize the development of the industry.
    The Gambling Digest is released publically, and available
    for download on the official CPRG website.
