Self Defense for Women with Tayah Kansik on DVD.  Combining self-defense training and an effective workout routine, Tayah Kansik demonstrates with a partner but the workout/lesson is for the individual.  The program draws from both boxing and mixed martial arts and is demonstrated in an easy to follow step-by-step manner with each move explained.  The Technique Workshop portion focuses on the basic moves and pace of the workout while the Applications portion centers on using learned techniques strung together for real life application.  Each workout also includes warmup, mobility exercises, stretches and a cool down.

The Other Woman by Sandie Jones.  Emily wasn’t looking for any kind of relationship, but all thoughts of her previous relationship disaster are vaporized by the sparks between her and Adam.  In spite of his hesitancy to speak about his past, Emily feels a true connection with Adam and the more time they spend together, the deeper the connection grows.  When Adam suggests she come with him to meet his mother, Pammie, Emily ignores her foreboding feelings and readily agrees.  It soon becomes obvious, to everyone but Adam, that Pammie does not intend to welcome Emily in any way, shape, or form.  Snide comments and petty attacks escalate, but Adam can only see the best in his mother and she will do anything for her boy, and anything to get rid of Emily.

Housegirl by Michael Donkor.  Belinda and Mary are both servant-girls for a wealthy retired couple in Kumasi, Ghana.  The older Belinda has taken Mary under her wing as the little sister she never had, teaching her the ins and outs of the life of a good servant.  Far away in London, Amma is having difficulties, becoming moody and withdrawn and exhibiting “rude cheekiness” according to her parents.  Amma’s parents are at their wits end with their daughter when their friends, Belinda and Mary’s employers, tell them of the wonderful girl working for them.  Soon Belinda is swept away to another world, all to “fix” the daughter of her new employers, and leaving Mary to cope with the change on her own.  All three girls must find not only themselves, but also their place in a world not of their own making.
