Cinder - Marissa Meyer - Jan 2012

It’s almost impossible to miss,  spend 15 minutes on the internet and your sure to bump into some mention or other of Marissa Meyer’s Cinder, a new dystopian novel placing a pot of cyborgs, magical powers and evil stepmothers on the boil.

Who Makes You FeelIn our überpaced world, filled with trinkets, gadgets, all manner of bling, tastes, sounds and experiences, it’s often an ease to forget what it is makes us happy?  According to a new poll by Reuters and Ipsos, it’s a buddy not a bauble that gives us  joy. Nearly two-thirds of married couples and people with a significant other say their partner is the most important source of happiness in their lives. And nearly half of all singles yearn above all else to find a sweetheart, with about 45 percent saying finding a partner would bring them the greatest happiness. Almost 40 percent of married couples reported that having a good sex life does or could bring them the greatest happiness, while almost 35 per cent of singles reported the same tingles. This was especially true for Brazilians. Nearly 60 percent said that nothing could make them happier than having a good sex life.

South Africa reported the highest levels of domestic bliss, with 82 percent of settled South Africans saying nothing could make them happier than their partner. Japanese and South Korean couples were at the other end of the scale. Nearly half said they would hesitate to say their partner was the single best thing in their lives, although they conceded that he or she was the source of at least some of their happiness. Read the full article »»»»
