Colgate has launched a newTotal toothpaste it says will revolutionise everyday oral care and transform the multi-benefit category it created with the introduction of the brand. Since the launch more than 20 years ago of original Colgate Total, the world’s first multi-benefit toothpaste, people’s view of health has evolved, the company said in a news release. According to Colgate, what had been a focus on avoiding illness and managing problems has become a desire for a holistic approach that enables a full and connected life. “Overall wellness is important to everyone, and total self-care means caring for the whole mouth, too,” said DrPatricia Verduin, Chief Technology Officer, Colgate-Palmolive Company. “We rely on our mouth to eat, drink, speak and laugh, but often neglect areas beyond teeth. Unlike ordinary fluoride toothpastes, the new Colgate Total fights bacteria not just on teeth, but also on tongue, cheeks and gums for 12 hours*, for whole mouth health,” she said. The company said the new Colgate Totaldelivers on the brand’s promise that everyone deserves a future they can smile about. It reportedly provides all the benefits of the original formula – excellent protection against plaque, gingivitis, stains, tartar and cavities, plus additional new benefits, including: - Sensitivity relief benefit across all variants; - Instant neutralization of odors associated with bad breath; - Seeking and fighting bacteria for enamel protection; and - New cooling flavours for lasting freshness *with four weeks continuous use


In this Thursday, April 4, 2019 file photo, Arnold Schwarzenegger, a cast member in the upcoming film "Terminator: Dark Fate," discusses the film during the Paramount Pictures presentation at CinemaCon 2019, the official convention of the National Association of Theatre Owners (NATO) at Caesars Palace, in Las Vegas.

Actor Arnold Schwarzenegger was assaulted during a public appearance in South Africa on Saturday, but the 71-year-old appeared to quickly recover and say "I'm just glad the idiot didn't interrupt my Snapchat." Videoshows the former California governor standing and filming children at a sporting event in Johannesburg when a man makes a flying kick into his back. Schwarzenegger stumbles forward. The man is quickly grabbed by security. Off camera, a man shouts several times "Help me!" The video shortly afterward shows Schwarzenegger smiling and shaking hands with bystanders but then walking out ringed by security. Schwarzenegger later posted on Twitter: "Thanks for your concerns, but there is nothing to worry about. I thought I was just jostled by the crowd, which happens a lot. I only realised I was kicked when I saw the video like all of you. I'm just glad the idiot didn't interrupt my Snapchat." He had been attending his Arnold Classic Africa event, which features dozens of sports and fitness activities. In a separate Twitter post, the event blamed a "crazed fan" for the assault. The statement cited organiser Wayne Price as saying the assailant was "known to the police for orchestrating similar incidents in the past" and that Schwarzenegger was "fine and still in good spirits." The actor confirmed he had no intention of laying charges and would continue with another appearance on Sunday as planned, the statement said.

Hype Type has teamed up with fellow dancehall artiste Thugsy Malone for the single,'Pain', released on the Queste label. Both artistes hail from Bull Bay which lies on the border of St Andrew and StThomas. "We know each other because we both lived in Bull Bay, but this is our first project together and it was a good decision because the response so far has been incredible," Thugsy Malone, whose real name is Donovan Drysdale, said. The single has racked up thousands of views since its release. "We plan to shoot a music video in Miami at the end of May. Our chemistry is very good especially since we are from the east and work out of the same Queste studio," Hype Type, whose real name is Joseph Henry, said. Hype Type is known for the single,"Stop the Violence, Stop the Crime” which did well soaring to #1 on the ethnic reggae charts in Bermuda. Hype Type was born to Rastafarian parents in the district of Bull Bay Jamaica, but migrated to Manchester, and then to Bermuda in 2006, before finally ending up in the USA in 2016. He has several songs that have been released on YouTube.com and videos and popular TV Stations. In the meantime, Thugsy Malone has become one of the new recognisable voices in dancehall. He attended Donald Quarrie Comprehensive High, then migrated to New York where he later went to Prospect Heights High. He became friends with Shabba Ranks and was then introduced to Peter Nar, former road manager for Bounty Killer, with whom he also struck up a friendship. “I was called Bugsy Malone before I became Thugsy Malone, I received the name Thugsy from Bounty, he said to me you are too strong to be a bug you are a thug,yuh fi name Thugsy Malone. The name definitely had a ring to it,” Thugsy said. Now, he is eyeing the 'Pain' single as a possible breakthrough hit to change the trajectory of his career. "Me and Hype Type are going all out with this one," he said.
