More than a third of British Asians do not feel British, a BBC poll suggests.
The research among the under-34s for the Asian Network found 38% of the UK residents of South Asian origin felt only slightly or not at all British.

More than a third agreed to get on in the UK they needed to be a "coconut", a term for somebody who is "brown on the outside but white on the inside".

ICM Research interviewed 500 Asian people aged 16-34 and 235 white people aged 18-34 between 4 and 12 July.

Men 'no less chatty than women'

The common notion that women are the more talkative sex has been dispelled by scientists in the US.
Researchers who bugged 400 students to log their chats found little difference in word count between the sexes.

The University of Arizona study, in Science, conflicts with previous US research suggesting women talk almost three times as much as men.

Whether someone was an introvert or an extrovert was more important, said relationship experts.

In the study, women spoke a daily average of 16,215 words during their waking hours, and men 15,669 words.

The "New Man" is a good thing, basically an all-round nice guy who can act like a gentleman and still help with the washing up, not to be confused with emos and spoiled, camp fashionistas. None of those are so new, but men have had to take more account of chauvinism. Hasn't filtered through to all of society though. Some of what MuslimSister is saying I can barely relate to, like these tough-as[size=12]s[/size] kids. I don't like that.

They may call it the new man, but i wouldnt say its actually a new thing.

we'l use this thread to share our skills and talents

we'l also ask others 'how to' do stuff that we dont know how to do

I'l start

how to get ur moneys worth at a buffet

-DONT keep on refilling ur coke - that'l make u full up
-DONT fill up on pasta's and bread, save that till the end
-eat slowly.
-when ur full - sit back chat for a bit and soon u'l have room for more


Islam says u gotta be humble and down to earth

but if u dont believe ur "all that" - who is?

i have a cousin - bless her she's so lovely in every way. But doesnt have a high opinion of herself in fact she thinks that everyone else is better than her

arrogance in others is a MASSIVE turn off

but at the same time

confidence is a very attractive trait

so, do you guys think your "all that?" :twisted:

or are u really just not "all that" and u have no issues with stating it? *coughAdmincough*
