Angelina Jolie dons yellow dress at Asian World Film Fest

Angelina Jolie often wears black, but the beauty stood out in a bright yellow dress on Monday.

The mother-of-six was accepting the Rising Star Award on behalf of First They Killed My Father star Sreymoch Sareum during the Asian World Film Festival in Culver City, California.

This sighting comes just before InTouch Weekly claimed the ex of Brad Pitt is seriously dating a British philanthropist.

Angie was seen with Loung Ung at the festival.

Her knee-length gown was spectacular as it came in at the waist and was belted to show off her slender frame. 

There were long sleeves and the dress also had feminine ruffles at the bottom.

The man is not named, but he is described as a ‘wealthy, 40-something British philanthropist and businessman.’

It was added they have been romantic since earlier this year.

‘It’s very hush hush,’ a source said. ‘She’s kept him hidden.’

There was also speculation that she might wed the mystery man after she finalizes her divorce from Pitt. It is not known how close the two are to ending their marriage.

She filed for divorce in September 2016 after an alleged altercation aboard a flight. 

Together they have kids Maddox, 16, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 11, and twins Vivienne and Knox, aged nine.

Another source said ‘Brad has been trying to fast track the divorce for some time. He’s wanted to move on with his life ever since he got sober and turned his life around with therapy.’

Clear As Mud

Men and women both have babies.

That's a fact of life – because I just said so. If we make the assumption that both sexes are physically capable of giving birth and brainstorm for creative childcare options, do you think we would come up with some new ideas?

I actually get out a camera during my classes when we talk about this subject. If you look around the room, you'll see that the women are vigorously nodding their heads, and the men are looking at me like I'm completely nuts. But really, you have not hurt anything by assuming that men and women both have babies. You've just earned a totally new perspective.

Now, what if I told you that the magnetic North and South Poles were going to flip? Is that ellogical? Not at all; in fact, it's already happening.

On average, the magnetic poles flip every 70,000 years and it's been about 120,000 years. We can prove this by looking at ancient pottery. When the clay was spun on the spinning wheel, the iron particles in the clay acted as compass needles and point north. Once ancient civilizations cured the clay, they created a permanent record of where North was. Ancient pottery reveals that theoles have flipped.

Whether men can have babies or the North and South poles really flip does not matter. What's important is the fact that there's no harm in assuming they can to break up the logic and look at things differently.

It's all about allowing ambiguity ambiguity. One of the largest hindrances to creativity is the fact that people do not allow ambiguity. Things must be clear-cut; right or wrong. We want specificity from life and from each other.

Engineers hate ambiguity. When I'm speaking to a group of them, someone will always stop me and say, "Ok, hold on. You've got to clear things up a bit."

"No, I'm being ambiguous on purpose."

"Well, I'm not allowing my team to go through this without further clarification."

Sigh.

We avoid ambiguity because of communication problems. People want to know that they're on the same page, but in a brainstorming session, it's OK to be ambiguous. It's OK to think about other ways an idea can be interpreted.

People also get too hung up on logic. Obviously, logic is part of the creative process, but logic can be restrictive to the brainstorming session. My restrictions on logic really get under engineers skin, too. When I tell a room of engineers that absolutely, positively no logic is allowed for one hour, their anger is palpable. I hear everything from, "you're wasting time," and "if we're being ilogical then we do not have the budget for this," and "this is stupid." They actually get mad.

What the engineers do not understand is that we need that one hour to be altogether illogical and ambiguous. You can be logical for the other 23 hours of the day if you need to, but for one hour, withhold judgment and let the creative juices flow.

Judgment kills creativity. When the boss opens their mouth and says, "That will not work," the creative process dies and no more ideas get thrown out.

Ambiguity is really about interpreting things differently, letting go of logic, and escaping from the fear of judgment. To encourage ambiguity, I tell students to listen to their dreams. Dreams are some of the most ambiguous experiences we encounter in life. Do you ever wake up in the morning and think about your dreams? Are you able to apply that crazy dream to what you were working on before you went to sleep?

Of course, when I tell people to listen to their dreams I'm not encouraging them to try to steal Brad Pitt from Angelina Jolie or quit their day job to become a rock star. I want students to listen to their dreams in a more literal sense. Pay attention to what your illogical right brain is saying.
If you have not already concluded that I'm a little bit different, you're going to think so now. I'm to the point that I can connect my crazy wild dreams to what I was thinking about in my logical left brain about 50% of the time. As long as I do not roll out of bed and fully wake up, I can usually make the connection between my crazy dreams of flying around in a pink tuxedo and a problem that I've been pondering.

Asking ambiguity in the creative process gives me a major advantage in business. It gives you freedom to find new answers.

Freedom is actually a bigger game than power.

Brave sisters make agonising decision to have breasts and ovaries removed after discovering ‘Angelina Jolie’ cancer gene

A pair of brave sisters have taken the agonising decision to have their breasts and ovaries removed after discovering they have the ‘Angelina Jolie’ cancer gene.

Natalie Savage, 23, and little sister Danielle Gawler, 21, made the brave choice after getting screened for the mutation, which is common in their family.

The pair agreed to be tested after their grandmother, who had the gene and was diagnosed with breast cancer aged just 32, begged them to get tested before she died.

They discovered they had both inherited the gene mutation BRCA1, which puts their chances of developing breast cancer in the future as high as 65% and ovarian cancer almost 40%.

BRCA1 and BRCA2 are genes that raise your cancer risk greatly if they become altered

High-profile celebrities, including actresses Angelina Jolie and Christina Applegate, have publicly announced they have the gene and have undergone double mastectomies to reduce their risk.

Jolie, 42, also had her ovaries removed after discovering in 2013 she inherited the BRCA1 mutated gene from her mother.

Accountant Natalie was just 18 when she tested positive and says she has never regretted her decision because she is planning to have a family before having her ovaries removed.

She said: “I now have the knowledge and power to do something about it.

“My BRCA diagnosis hasn’t impacted my life negatively at all, although it is sometimes a little daunting knowing the surgeries that lie ahead.

“Surgery isn’t recommended until you are nearer the age of 30 for risk-reducing mastectomy and 35 plus for risk-reducing hysterectomy.

“There is no right or wrong choice and we hope we can help ladies make an informed decision whatever that may be, but one that is right for them.”

Angelina Jolie had a double mastectomy and her ovaries removed

Her sister Danielle, 21, is also planning to have preventative surgery in the future.

The sisters are two of six granddaughters and one great-granddaughter in the family who could have the gene.

Natalie says two have chosen not to be tested and the others are too young for screening. The recommended age for testing is 18.

BRCA1 and BRCA2 are genes that raise your cancer risk greatly if they become altered.

Having a variant BRCA gene greatly increases a woman’s chance of developing breast cancer and ovarian cancer.

They also increase a man’s chance of developing breast cancer and prostate cancer.

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues
Actress Christina Applegate had a double mastectomy in 2008

After testing positive, the sisters, from Herne Bay, Kent, started attending a BRCA support group for women, which was inspired by the late Caroline Langman, a clinical nurse specialist in genetics.

She said: “Attending the meetings really helped me not only understand what the surgeries involved but also to accept that it’s OK to wait until the time is right.

“She is now co-host of the East Kent BRCA group, which meets monthly at the city’s Abode Hotel.

“All the women have had a BRCA 1/2 confirmed diagnosis and are at various stages of their journey.

“We have many ladies who have had all or part of their risk-reducing surgeries, others that have chosen to have regular surveillance and newly diagnosed members.

“The meetings provide a very friendly, private and non-intimidating environment where we can sit and talk over coffee.

“The group is able to provide a variety of knowledge and opinions.”

Angelina Jolie NOT Getting Married, Despite Report

Angelina Jolie Married Wedding

(In Touch)

Angelina Jolie is not secretly getting married, nor is she hiding the supposed nuptials from estranged husband Brad Pitt, despite a completely untrue tabloid cover story. The bogus report even includes a rundown of the actress’s alleged wedding plans, but it’s all made-up. Gossip Cop can exclusively set the record straight.

According to In Touch, Jolie is on the verge of getting hitched for the fourth time. “She’s been serious with a wealthy 40-something British philanthropist and businessman since early this year,” a so-called “source” tells the magazine. “She’s kept him hidden. It’s very hush-hush. If it makes Brad unhappy when he finds out, she’s fine with that. It’s another way of sticking it to Brad.”

The outlet’s questionable source further claims the actress has vindictively set out to make Pitt suffer. “She knows if he finds out after the fact it will hurt him, especially with the kids involved in the ceremony.” Speaking of the exes’ six children, the “insider” contends that they’re “purposely being left in the dark because they would accidentally tell Brad, and Angie doesn’t want him to know anything ahead of the marriage.”

The seemingly phony source also maintains that Jolie has the ceremony, gown and location already mapped out. The actress will allegedly hold a small wedding in Cambodia, where she’ll wear “traditional Cambodian garb,” serve indigenous food, and involve her kids in various aspects of the celebration. “She’s marrying for love, but she also knows there’s the added benefit that it might make Brad unhappy,” adds the supposed insider, who sounds as if he or she is still in high school. “It’s been more than a year since she blindsided him with the divorce, and she’s still trying to hurt him.”

However, this is all the same recycled narrative that In Touch already tried to push earlier this year. Gossip Cop corrected the unreliable outlet in April when it wrongly reported Jolie was getting married to a “wealthy British businessman.” The following month, the tabloid similarly claimed Jolie’s wedding would be held in Cambodia. Obviously, neither of those events ever occurred, and they still aren’t happening.

Of course, if the tabloid really had scoop on Jolie getting married, wouldn’t it know the name of the groom? Additionally, the magazine doesn’t provide any details about how the actress and the alleged “British philanthropist” met. It’s also not explained in the publication how Jolie has become so serious with this mysterious “businessman,” and yet none of her six children has an inkling their mom is ready to wed.

Among the other reasons the outlet’s cover story doesn’t add up is because Jolie herself recently confirmed she’s single. Regardless, Gossip Cop is exclusively assured by a source close to the actress that she’s not getting married, nor is she dating anyone at the moment. As for the assertion she’s trying to punish Pitt, that’s also simply not the case.

Angelina Jolie is getting married and hiding it from Brad Pitt.

Top 10 "Sexiest" Beauty Revealed Through CNN Search

Read all about it! From Hollywood heartthrobs to a naughty Disney "esque" costume page, the Websearch at news giant CNN powered by Internet authority Yahoo claims to know what is relevant to a search of the sexiest. Who are we to disagree? Beauty is clearly in the eye of the beholder. The who, where, what and why;

# 1 Sexy strangers in a strange land.
Just to show that the press does not always favor the celebrity lifestyle! Sitting a savory silver medal placement are some uncommonly common sexy citizens of Seattle. In and about this trendy town, these folks really hitting the heart and groin of the Seattle Stranger's top list. Featuring interviews from sexy baristas to beautiful bookworms, number two on the list will leave you hot for teacher.

# 2 Sexy Kitty – 9 lives.
Number two has us a little confused, but somewhat intrigued? This is a personal webpage that does not really look too sexy to this cat? Not too sure what is up with that one, CNN breaking news? I do not think so.
[http://sexiest-cat.esp.st/]

# 3 Once upon a time …
Fairytales and sexy costumes are out of the storybook and into our hearts. With Halloween right around the corner, sexy beats spooky hands down. Have a boo at a twister torn Dorothy and a naughty Little Red Hooding that makes the Big Bad Wolf look innocent. There is nothing Grimm about these tricks and trips. Kiss fewer frogs this Halloween and find your Prince Charming quicker.

# 4 One for the boys.
Number 4 on Yahoo, but number 1 with the raging hormones of American boys, is the annual and always popular FHM's 100 sexiest women of 2006 poll. Voted number 1 on the poll this year rules Scarlett Johansson over second place and last year's winner Angelina Jolie. Johansson was quoted as saying "One of the best things for a woman to hear is that she is sexy. I'd like to thank FHM's readers for the huge compliment." Jessica Alba, Jessica Simpson, Keira Knightley and Halle Berry also graced the top 10.

# 5 and # 6 The sexiest man is …
This one is for the ladies. Occupying dual spots is the AOL's People online top 100 men of 2004 and 2005. Ladies looking forward to the 2006 list, can have a gander at their favorites of the past two years. Let's take a look at the other side of the gender objectifying shall we. With a lot of pride and little bit of prejudice, Matthew McConhaughey oozes the most sexuality, with Patrick Dempsey and Terrence Howard close behind his behind. These guys are enough to rev the engine of any hot-blooded American woman. Common characteristics of the hottest hunks are handsome looks, successful carers, and loads of charisma. Nobody knows men like People!

# 7 Sci-Fi Divas!
The new genre of sexy science fiction divas bears little resemblance to the bad "b" flicks of old. In a 23-hour marathon of Farscape aired on May 31st, the alien seduction was near cataclysmic. Alien abduction may have gotten a bad wrap in the past.

Even while popping out to a Baskin-Robbins, she manages to look glamorous.

Angelina Jolie was photographed ice cream cone in hand on Monday as she emerged from a Los Angeles location of the chain.

The 41-year-old actress – who was also seen ambling about an LA sidewalk without ice cream that day – wore a chic black cocktail dress that fell past the knee.

Though they had been a couple since 2005 – when Brad infamously left his first wife Jennifer Aniston for Angelina – Brangie had waited to marry until 2014, holding the ceremony at their Château Miraval in the South Of France.

They are the parents of six children, three of whom are adopted and three of whom Brad and Angelina conceived together.

When she split from Brad last year, Angelina enlisted the services of divorce-lawyer-to-the-stars Laura Wasser, as TMZ had reported at the time.

Set in Cambodia under the brutal Khmer Rouge, the movie is based on a memoir by Loung Ung, who co-wrote the script with Angelina.

The Benefits of Wearing a Belly Wrap After Pregnancy

From Angelina Jolie to Jessica Alba, celebs are touting the belly wrap as the next-best-thing-to-liposuction, without the risks of cosmetic surgery. While star endorsers give the sense that belly wraps (also known as abdominal binders) are a recent trend, they’ve actually been around for centuries. Aside from their postpartum usage, these have also been used to help people suffering from back pain, by increased abdominal support. Dr. Jay Goldberg of California says his practice has prescribed abdominal binders for a long time for back problems, tummy tucks, and as a recovery tool to help women recovering from vaginal delivery or C-sections. Alongside a healthy diet and exercise, advocates say that tummy wraps can help shrink the mummy tummy and offer support for the legs and back. But is it a gimmick or god’s gift to women? If you aren’t sure, here are some things to consider.

When did it begin?

From the Japanese “sarashi”, to the “faja” used by Latinas, and the plethora of similar belly wraps throughout Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and South America, the waist band goes back to ancient times. It is only recently that North American women have gotten on to the trend.

How do they work?

Belly wraps create a gently compressing tension on the abs that may assist the uterus’ return to its normal size. Another benefit is the increased confidence that comes with how women fit in their clothes, while wearing their waist bands. There are several belly wraps on the market, but doctors consistently recommend that women don’t expect them to restore their pre-pregnancy belly within a week or two. Doctors say they can be put on after delivery and suggest they be worn throughout the day for at least four to six weeks, for maximum benefits.

80% to 99% of pregnant women experience a condition known as diastasis recti, or abdominal separation (1). This condition causes the abdominal muscles to separate, stretch, and thins the connective tissue that binds them. For this condition wearing an abdominal splint can help.

No Belly Wrap-Fits-All

Belly wraps or corsets are typically $20 to $50 each and concentrate on the hips or the mid-section. Because they can vary greatly in feeling and may need to be switched out as one’s girth decreases, women should try on several and be prepared to go through a few. While waist bands can certainly help with how women feel in their clothes, medical practitioners caution women against expecting the natural feelings of discomfort that can accompany their new post-baby bodies to disappear overnight and advise them to be kind with themselves, their bodies, the recovery process, and above all, to resist the temptation to compare themselves to those rare birds who seemingly overnight get their pre-baby bodies back (2).

“No one’s really okay with their body after their baby,” said Inwood resident Sindy Sanchez, “but no one talks about it.” And they certainly don’t talk about the methods they use to get their bodies back, unless of course, they’re Jessica Alba.
