The 50 Sexiest Women Over 50

The 50 Sexiest Women Over 50

The youth-obsessed style and entertainment industries may have convinced you that women don't age well, and that you can't have serious sex appeal once you've lived half a century. To put it simply: they're wrong. Here's our list of the sexiest women over 50. You may not agree with all our picks, but read through to find out why we think they sizzle.

Ten years ago, Madonna turned 40. It was, of course, a huge affair, as Madonna was (and still is) synonymous with celebrity, and cantankerous pop culture theorists found it a staggering victory on her part that she still managed to be relevant at such an age. Everywhere, the news of her birthday was upon us. It was almost akin to the Y2K countdown.

This was 1998, before reality TV had killed the video star. VH1 made sure its viewers stayed well aware of the impending milestone by flickering "Madonna Turns 40 in _____ Hours!" across younger incarnations of the singer wriggling onscreen. Then she turned 40, and--to the shock of the entertainment world--it didn't seem to change anything.

Things have changed. In August, Madonna turned 50, and while the paparazzi managed to get plenty of shots of her entering and exiting her London party, this birthday didn't seem such a big deal.

Perhaps it's because there are now so many beautiful women who are breaking barriers in a formerly youth-obsessed industry. Sure, cynics may credit plastic surgery for the staying power of these women, but they're overlooking the fact that surgeried or not, these women are fascinating to watch. Some we've loved for decades, while others hit their strides later in life. All are alluringly mature, and all are sexy. To see the fifty lovely ladies from the top, start here.

For His Memory - Jamie Bulger

Received this e-mail from detests citizens of the earth

Do you remember February 1993 in England , when a
young boy of 3 was taken from a Liverpool shopping
centre by two 10-year-old boys?
Jamie Bulger walked away from his mother for only
a second, Jon Venables took his hand and led him out
of the mall with his friend Robert Thompson. They took
Jamie on a walk for over 2 and a half miles, along the
way stopping every now and again to
torture the poor little boy who was crying
constantly for his mummy.

Finally they stopped at a railway track where they
brutally kicked him, threw stones at him, rubbed paint
in his eyes, pushed batteries up his anus and cut his
fingers off with scissors. Other mutilations were
inflicted but not reported in the press.

N.B. :- Remember, a 3year old cannot possibly
defend themselves against a 10 year old, let alone of 2 them.

What these two boys did was so horrendous that
Jamie's mother was forbidden to identify his body.
They then left his beaten small body on railway
tracks so a train could run him over to hide the mess
they had created. These two boys, even being boys,
understood what they did was wrong, hence trying to
make it look like an accident.

This week Lady Justice Butler-Sloss has awarded
the two boys ( now men ), anonymity for the rest of
their lives when they leave custody with new
identities. They will also leave custody early only
serving just over half of their sentence.
They are being relocated to Australia to live out
the rest of their lives. They disgustingly and
violently took Jamie's life away and in return they
each get a new life!

Please... .. If you feel as strongly as we do, (
and if you haven't already signed this petition ) that
this is a grave Miscarriage of justice - Hit the
forward button and add your name at the end, and send
it to everyone you can !

Please forward this to:
and mark it for the attention to Lady Justice Butler-Sloss.

There is power in numbers & these petitions do help.
Maybe it'll prevent another child from a violent
death & maybe it'll get greater, more appropriate
convictions for these criminals.whatever their age.

Please take a few seconds to forward it to your
mail list & don't forget to add your name to the list.

Thank you.

Harmonious East vs Racist West

racism: A prejudice or discrimination based on an individuals race that is expressed individually or institutional policies or practices. Racism is a system of oppression - a nexus of racist beliefs , whether explicit , tacit or unconscious. Practices , organizations and institutions that combine to discriminate against and marginalize a class of people who share a common racial designation.

discrimination: unfair treatment of a person or group base on race , religion , ethnic origin and other attributes

While the people of Sabah and Sarawak are living in unified harmony not by designed nor any force racial relations act or policies but merely to an inner sense of spiritual unity that has evolved naturally amid the feeling of oneness through inter-marriages and sincere indulgence in a mutually accepted diversified culture.

Without the aid of any institutionalized propaganda machines or advertisements or any other promotional gimmicks to bond the people. East Malaysia is the best example of the unified Malaysia that Federal MP's in the government as well as opposition are meticulously pursuing , that some how have eluded the Peninsular States

Sadly , millions have been wasted to achieved this objective and yet Peninsular states are baffled by racial tensions right up to this present day. A vivid indicator of failed government sponsored programmes that have been hijacked time and again by racial chauvinists putting their selfish political ambitions in the forefront.

When most Malaysians understands that to treat individuals differently on account of their race is unfair not everyone sees the big picture as revealed by ex de facto law minister, Zahid Ibrahim, citing racial bigots in Umno as a stumbling block to his reform plans . One of several reasons he left office , one other being the rampant used of ISA to isolate dissidents.

After 50 or so years of independence , racial discrimination is still exhibited in government policies and institutions , though the ruling elite consists of all major races in the country. The recent incitement by influential leaders behaving in a racist manner rebuking a suggestion by Selangor MB to open UITM doors to the non Malays which led to street protests is clear revelation of the state of affairs in this racially divided land.

Read here to what my cyberspace acquaintance has written , a fictionalized account to a blooming real scenario and also here in response to this. Click here to read "racism , part of a social contract".

Many may share the same sentiments as Zahid, owing to the fact, that Malay dominated UMNO as the main policy makers should have the will and sincerity to push for reforms.

Nonetheless the non Malays are equally responsible to this menace as they are guilty of their own form of racism , though a huge portion of the blame should be leveled at their self-serving lacklustre Government Reps for failing to conjure a more lucarative deal , compelling these "pendatangs" to a self segregated existence refusing to co-mingled with other races other than their own.

Economic policies viewed as favoring a particular race such as NEP and sheer frustration of a pro-racist stance has had a detrimental effect on the government and has given a resurgent opposition more leeway , as this is pushing the non Malays to a new platform made available by them to voice out their grievances.

As some may think their salvation is in the hands of a Political Maverick with chants of reforms and music to the ear mantra of "ketuanan rakyat"

They should be reminded that,

"An harmonious Nation has never been fully achieved by policy reforms alone , a sense of spiritual oneness that has been embedded in the hearts and minds of citizens of the earth in Sabah and Sarawak , is a more appropriate stance to emulate"
