(Courtesy)Anyone who claims to know music must know Aretha Franklin, her music and most of all her voice - one of nature’s finest creations. However, what most people do not know is that most of Aretha’s songs are really a handbook or encyclopedia, about women, about how they feel and how they deal with relationships. Men claim that women are hard to read, but if you listen to Aretha, then you will get full and unbridled understanding of how women, feel and think about love and their men. To make matters worse, women do love forever and so can marry one man yet love another for eternity. So, if you want to know about women and love, listen to Aretha.

Freezing fresh chicken meat for 24 hours has been shown to reduce the number of campylobacter. Poultry meat, compared to beef and pork had highest levels of contamination while drug resistant campylobacter was highly common in stool samples collected from 632 children from the regions.
