Top 5 benefits of cocoa butter

Cocoa butter is the cream-colored fat that's extracted from cocoa beans—which explains its chocolate-y scent!

It also melts at body temperature, making it readily absorbed by the skin.
Get to know more about this wonder moisturizer:
1. It keeps skin conditions at bay. Cocoa butter has been known to treat eczema and dermatitis. Thank the cocoa mass polyphenol (CMP) in cocoa butter: CMP inhibits the production of immonu globulin, which tends to worsen the symptoms of dermatitis and asthma.

Pacman finds an ally in U.S. Senator

pinoy movies - filipino news WASHINGTON (AFP) - A top US senator said Tuesday he backs a probe into the split decision giving Timothy Bradley a win over Filipino superstar Manny Pacquiao, but said he believed there was "nothing untoward" in the scoring.
Undefeated American Bradley won the controversial high-profile championship boxing bout Saturday in Las Vegas in Senator Harry Reid's home state of Nevada, where the fight's three judges were under pressure to explain their scoring which many experts have described as flawed.
"If an investigation makes everyone feel better, do the investigation," Democratic Senate Majority Leader Reid, himself a onetime amateur boxer, told reporters in Washington.
"I am confident that there was nothing untoward, I think people just make bad decisions in a lot of things they do, including judging fights," he added.
"But it doesn't hurt to clear the air and take a look at this."
The bout saw judge Jerry Roth give Pacquiao the fight 115-113, but C.J. Ross and Duane Ford both had Bradley winning by the same score, despite Pacquiao appearing to land the more damaging blows throughout the contest.
The fight's promoter, Bob Arum, questioned the competence of the judges, the selection process the Nevada State Athletic Commission used to choose them, and the fact that all came from Nevada.
