Horoscopes 3-29-12

 

HOROSCOPES

Aries

You need to deal with a situation that is somewhat imposing — but your mental energy lets you handle it in a way that impresses all the right people. Make it look easy and you can move forward quickly.

Taurus

Try not to get too excited by big deals today — you need to curb your impulse to buy everything that looks good in the moment. When you wake up tomorrow, you don’t want to deal with buyer’s remorse.

Gemini

Big ideas are important to you even on normal, boring days — but now, when your mind is filled with great energy, you can hardly contain yourself! It’s a great time for you to get others on your side.

Cancer

Lots of things need to get done today — and they’re all on your list! Make sure that you’re taking care of the high-priority stuff first, as you can’t leave all the big stuff until tomorrow.

Leo

Your friends have the time to show you what’s what today, so make sure you’re paying attention and asking the right questions. Things are sure to get better in the near future.

Virgo

Communication requires greater care than usual today, so make sure that you’re picking your words as if they were expensive gifts. It’s not too hard for you to get your point across.

 

 

Libra

Something new is in the air, and you need to get the conversation going about what to do next. Things could be really different if you want, but you’ve got to take that first step.

Scorpio

You need to be more careful today. Things might seem to be going your way, but that just means that you’ve got some wiggle room when your competition starts to really take off.

Sagittarius

You feel more enthused about something you were dreading. It may be that there are hidden facets, or maybe your mental energy is just right for whatever task is at hand. Go for it and then have fun!

Capricorn

Don’t beat around the bush today — you need to deal with events as they happen. If others start to derail your conversation, cut them off (politely, if possible) and get back to the important stuff.

Aquarius

Your creative ideas are legendary, and you should find that your energy is best spent on the big issues that others seem to be neglecting. Your notion of the big picture is paramount.

Pisces

This is a bad day for big moves, even promotions. If you’re stuck between Point A and Point B, try to just hunker down and wait for tomorrow, which should be much better for travel.

iBike fitness tool puts trainer on your handlebars

LAS VEGAS–A woman is pedaling leisurely on a stationary bike, her thick, dark braid draped delicately over one shoulder as she barely breaks a sweat. Someone whispers that she’s Brazilian, and thus a real, live example of what you get with one of Velocomp’s new workouts, Brazilian Butt. (Using a real, live Brazilian who presumably has said butt sans effort rather defeats the point, but I digress.)

The $269 iBike Powerhouse features workouts such as Brazilian Butt and KidFit. (Credit: Corinne Schulze/CNET) Velocomp, creators of last year’s iBike Dash, unveiled the iBike Powerhouse at CES this week–the Dash’s bigger, badder cousin.

For $269, the handlebar-mounted cycling computer that includes a water- and shock-resistant case and syncs with theiPhone andiPod Touch is all about tailored workouts that remind you when you’re slacking off.

In addition to Brazilian Butt (yes, this six-week fitness plan is all about toning one’s gluteus maximus), the Powerhouse features Weekend Warrior (for those who need to cram it all into the weekends), ExpressFit (for those who don’t mind working harder to get faster results), Heart Healthy (more cardio, less strain), KidFit (replete with safety lessons and rewards for frequent or lengthy rides), and more.

The sensored case is water- and shock-resistant with a universal mount.

After selecting a goal, the rider gears up, plugs an iPhone or iPod into the sensored Powerhouse case, and is guided through the regimen via continuous status reports, notes of encouragement, the rider’s preferred music, and levels of exertion.

Designed by renowned cyclist and coach Hunter Allen, each fitness plan takes anywhere from four to six weeks, with each ride lasting 45 to 90 minutes. Powerhouse is pretty clearly built for starter or leisure cyclists with a little extra spending money; it is essentially teaching riders how to approach a session the way their colorfully spandexed brethren already do.

Specs include the universal mounting case, a wireless cadence sensor, an app that interacts with iBike’s electronics, and the ability to take calls or listen to music throughout the workout. Users can buy additional workouts for $9.99 each.

JUSTIN BEIBER

Justin Bieber may be all about practical jokes these days  but at least two people in Texas don’t fight the singer very funny. Last month, Bieber sent out nine-tenths of a phone number, along with the message “Call me right now.” Naturally – despite the Tweet being taken down soon after it went live – many teenage girls followed this advice, simply guessing the identity of the final digit.   Unfortunately for Bieber (and even more unfortunately for the countless fans hoping to hear his sweet, sexy voice), two residents in Texas – identified by TMZ as Dilcie and Kent – are now threatening legal action against the star because their phones won’t stop ringing.   A lawyer for these plaintiffs says his clients demand compensation for the fact that they are receiving up to 1,000 phone calls per day. What does the attorney suggest?   Concert ticks, an apology from Bieber or, of course, straight up cash.   No word yet from Justin’s camp, excerpt perhaps a bit of laughter over just how absurd these charges would sound if ever brought to court.

Aritst of the week 3-29-12

Artist of the week!

BEYONC’E!

Beyoncé Giselle Knowles (born September 4, 1981), known mononymously as Beyoncé ), is an American singer, songwriter, record producer, and actress. Born and raised in Houston, Texas, she enrolled in various performing arts schools and was first exposed to singing and dancing competitions as a child. Knowles rose to fame in the late 1990s as the lead singer of the R&B girl group Destiny’s Child, one of the world’s best-selling girl groups of all time.

During the hiatus of Destiny’s Child, Knowles released her debut solo album, Dangerously in Love, in 2003, which spawned two number-one singles on the Billboard Hot 100—”Crazy in Love” and “Baby Boy”—and became one of the most successful albums of that year, earning her a then record-tying five Grammy Awards.[2] Following the disbandment of Destiny’s Child in 2005, Knowles released her second solo album, B’Day, in 2006, and included the top 10 singles “Déjà Vu”, “Irreplaceable” and “Beautiful Liar”. Her third solo album I Am… Sasha Fierce, released in 2008, spawned four commercially successful singles—”If I Were a Boy”, “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)”, “Halo” and “Sweet Dreams”. The album helped Knowles earn six Grammys in 2010, breaking the record for most Grammy Awards won by a female artist in one night.[3] Knowles released her fourth solo album, 4, in 2011, and became her fourth consecutive number-one album on the Billboard 200 as a solo artist. This made her the third artist in history to have her first four studio albums debut atop the chart.

Apart from her work in music, Knowles has also launched a career in acting. She made her debut in the 2001 musical film Carmen: A Hip Hopera, prior to appearing in major films, including Austin Powers in Goldmember (2002), Dreamgirls (2006), which earned her two Golden Globe nominations, Cadillac Records (2008) and Obsessed (2009). Knowles and her mother introduced their family’s fashion line, House of Deréon, in 2005, and has also endorsed brands including, L’Oréal, Pepsi, Tommy Hilfiger, Nintendo and Vizio. In June 2010, she was ranked first on Forbes list of the 100 Most Powerful and Influential musicians in the world,[4] and second on its list of the 100 Most Powerful and Influential celebrities in the world.[5]

Knowles’ work has earned her numerous awards and accolades, including 16 Grammy Awards, 11 MTV Video Music Awards, 4 American Music Awards, a Billboard Millennium Award and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame with Destiny’s Child. In 2009, Billboard named her the Top Radio Songs Artist of the 2000s decade,[6] and ranked her as the 4th overall Artist of the Decade (and as the First Female Artist of that period).[7] The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), also recognized Knowles as the Top Certified Artist of the 2000s.[8][9] In the US, Knowles has sold over 11.2 million albums as of May 2010,[10] and more than 30.4 million digital singles as of January 2012.[11] She has sold 75 million records worldwide, making her one of the best-selling music artists of all time.[12] In 2010, VH1 included Knowles in its list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time,[13] and ranked her third in their 2012 list of the 100 Greatest Women in Music.[14]
