Fear of China’s OLED gains sparked Samsung and LG’s budding romance

Samsung and LG are both major Korean conglomerates that also compete against each other in various industries, such as component manufacturing, electronics, and home appliances. LG used to make phones back in the day as well but has since given up on that business. Samsung Display and LG Display are the leading South Korean display makers. As you'd expect, they're tough competitors, but there's recently been an improvement in their relationship. This has likely come from a realization that China's relentless pursuit of…

tea, royals, romance with daughter of Putin ally

Looking for a soulmate? It’s a trap, researchers say

Yuan Thompson and her husband have been together since 2008, and while at first she believed they could be soulmates — they had that initial spark, anyway — she says it was dedication and tough work that made them a lasting couple."We definitely enjoyed each other when we first met. We had a super-fun summer, so we decided to stay in touch after that. But honestly, it took seven years of long-distance relationship and lots of hard work for us to eventually be together," Thompson, 38, told CBC News from Ottawa."We all have…

My Favourite Cake review – charming portrayal of a 70-year-old Iranian’s appetite for romance | Berlin film festival 2024

As well as everything else, this wonderfully sweet and funny film will contribute to the debate about whether repressive regimes are the nursery of artistic greatness. The Iranian government has prevented the film’s two directors, Maryam Moghaddam and Behtash Sanaeeha, from travelling to Berlin to attend their own premiere; six months ago, their production offices were raided and computers and hard drives confiscated. But, fortunately, the police couldn’t find the film itself, whose gentle humanity is a compelling rebuke…

Its definition is arguable, so some might not even find the movies on this list romantic at all, but, like it or not, it is also comprehensive, so that even the wildest movie that you can think of right now can somehow also be labeled as a love story. Just like love, the range of this list is quite broad, ranging from genuine attempts at providing a more realistic look at true love to grim…
