Ten minutes of fame

One blogger a few years ago, he wrote:

Pop artist Andy Warhol famously predicted that we would each have ten minutes of fame, which seems quite a bargain to me. After all, I don't think non-stop fame is all it's cracked up to be. If you look past the hygienist smile and the designer plastic of the glitterati, you'll find terrified and lonely people who hide behind minders and high-security fences as obsessive wannabes stalk the perimeters. You can't tell who you can trust either, with fair-weather hangers-on and bitchy A/B/C-List competition behind the celebrity chumminess. Another concern is in what celebrity does to your sense of identity and hence who you are . When everyone treats you like a god it can be easy to assume that you are. Gods are all-powerful and often blindly cruel. They are also cosseted and cocooned until like a baby they can do little for themselves. The other side of the hill must also be quite a downer. After fame and fortune, to be blanked and ignored as you slide back into humdrum is probably a profoundly depressing experience. But a peek, just ten minutes or so -- that sounds about right. Just a nibble of that green-looking grass. Enough to understand both the pleasure and the pain. That would be interesting. I've had my moments of notoriety and it's been fun and added spice, but thankfully I've never got close to being trapped in celebrity. 

Friday 13th

It's a bad year for people who suffer from paraskevidekatriaphobia — the fear of Friday the 13th. Why? There are three this year, instead of the usual two. There was one in 2011. That's not all. For the first time since 1984, those three Friday the 13ths — Jan. 13, April 13 and July 13 — are exactly 13 weeks apart. Three Friday the 13ths happen every few years. The last was in 2009, and the next is 2015. What's special about 2012 — and what won't occur again until 2040 — is that this is happening during a leap year, says Tom Fernsler,

Ten minutes workouts

Adults should get at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity every week. But you can reach this minimum target by doing three 10-minute sessions, five days a week. Physical activity provides a wide range of health benefits, including a reduced risk of heart disease and stroke, maintenance of mobility, control of body weight and increased mental wellbeing. But for many of us, finding the time to fit exercise into a busy schedule isn’t easy. If you find it difficult to spare time for physical activity, don’t give up. You can achieve your weekly minimum of 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity by splitting 30 minutes of activity each day into three sessions of 10 minutes. Moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity means an activity that causes your heart rate to rise, and you to break a sweat: for example, fast walking or cycling.

10 minutes

The Ten Minute Rule, also known as Standing Order No. 23, is a procedure in the British Parliament for the introduction of Private Member's Bills in addition to the 20 per session normally permissible. It is one of the ways in which a bill may receive its first reading.
Any MP may introduce a bill under the Ten Minute Rule, although in practice it is only used by backbenchers. To qualify to introduce a bill under the Rule, the MP in question must be the first through the door to the Public Bill Office on the Tuesday or Wednesday morning fifteen working days (three weeks) prior to the date they wish to introduce their bill. Due to the popularity of the Rule and the difficulty in launching a Private Member's Bill by other means, MPs have been known to sleep outside the Public Bill Office in order to guarantee a slot...read more
