The first period ended with Yoshida leading 1-0 after Maroulis failed to convert when put on the 30-second...

In other words? "Men might want to reread the story in the newspaper," Maria Elizabeth Rabe, one of the study's authors, told AOL News in a phone interview.

    She's best known for that scene in Basic Instinct - and it appears that Sharon Stone still lives by the maxim if you've got it, flaunt it, on the set of a recent movie.

In fact, the budget seems to have been so low that the props department couldn't afford to loan Sharon a handbag.
