We interview Dara Kell, the South African filmmaker behind this film showing the fight by young activists living in shack homes to get the government of South Africa to live up to its promises of decent housing for all citizens. These young people work to halt government plans to destroy these informal settlements without providing an alternative. It shows their fight for justice that reaches the courts and the response when one activist dares to challenge the ANC itself. This new battle for homes will surely resonate with those who followed the apartheid fight.

Find out how one woman made it her mission to help plus size women look and feel beautiful for those special occasions in their life. It all started when she had to wipe away the tears from her teenage daughter's face. You see, her daughter could not find a prom dress that worked for her plus size body.
Not only was Phyllis upset about what her daughter had to go through, she was mad. Mad that fashion catered to thin girls and women when the reality is that one in every four high school girls in the U.S. wears a size 12 or larger.
Phyllis Brasch Librach (‘LEE-BROCK”), an award-winning journalist turned entrepreneur, launched a business at an age when many women would retire. Today she runs Sydney’s Closet, headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, leading a Fashion Team that designs and manufactures plus-size special occasion dresses for teens and women
to wear to once-in-a-lifetime celebrations. Sydney’s Closet original designs have been worn by women across the USA and around the world and seen on the red carpet on celebrities like KayCee Stroh, Gabourey Sidibe and Phyllis Smith. The specialty apparel company has been featured in O, Oprah Magazine,Seventeen, Teen Prom and seen on the Today Show, Dr. Phil , E! Entertainment and Kelly and Regis.

We will talk about love, happiness and our destiny. Tonight I interview the cast of the film The Tower Heist. Interview with Eddie Murphy, Ben Stiller, Gaboury Sidibe, Gary Affleck, Brian Grazer, and Brett Ratner. This film opens tonight.www.healinghandsmagazine.com
Intense love, done in a rightful and honorable way, comes together and creates a beautiful and powerful spark. The impact of that spark is so strong that it flattens you to the ground. Yet still you feel joyful, even knocked to the ground, because of the impact of love. The first spark of true love is so important and it should not be misused. Once that intense first spark of true love is misused, it is very difficult to completely unwind that mistake. Each person has the duty to preserve his pure first love until the time when it can spark for the sake of the universe. Therefore, you should not behave in a casual way toward your love. True love is noble and sacred; it is not vulgar or dirty, although the sacredness of love can be defiled if it is misused. The perfection of man and woman's love is the perfection of the universe. When this love is broken, the order of the universe and the vertical world are destroyed. You will be in trouble if you try to rush the experience of love. The feeling of being intoxicated by love and becoming happy is like a preview of what is to come when the time is right for the gate of love to open. The gate should proudly open when you have become the master of love.♥♥♥
