Having an office romance improves your quality of work, a survey claims. Researchers found the thrill of a fling “raised energy levels and led to better professional capacity”.

One in five people quizzed by Italian sexologist Serenella Salomoni admitted to an affair at work. She said: “We discovered that people who had an office romance said they were happier, more energetic and more productive.”

Nearly twice as many women as men admitted to having a fling in the workplace, Dr Salomoni added. One in three owned up to having a relationship with a superior to enhance their career. » Article here

Real Estate agent shows house, owner dead in closet

An estate agent who took a prospective buyer to view a house in central England found the owner hanging dead in a closet, the agency said Thursday.

It was the first viewing of the 350,000-pound ($700,000) house which had been on the market for a week. The owner was hanging from a belt inside a walk-in closet in the main bedroom. "It was quite a shock," said a spokesman for estate agents Hartleys. "Our agent quickly ushered everyone out, locked the property and called the authorities."

The owner, a single man in his 40s, is thought to have committed suicide. He inherited the house from his mother who died recently, the estate agents said. » Article here

Ice chunks 'from the sky' crash through woman's ceiling

A Canadian woman narrowly avoided getting hit by several chunks of ice that crashed through her bedroom ceiling Thursday, likely dropped from a passing airplane, officials said.

The woman was in her room and only a few steps away when debris "exploded" through her roof shortly before 9:30 a.m.. Fire crews found several chunks of ice about 6 inches long on the bed, along with pieces of shingles, plywood, drywall and insulation.

Fire department spokesman Jeff Budai said his best guess is that the "frozen liquid" fell from a passing airplane. » Article here
