Rob Pattinson Forgave Kristen Stewart

According to the latest news, Stewart has been forgiven by Pattinson after having an affair and getting caught with Snow White and the Huntsman's married director Rupert Sanders.

According to the report, they have moved back in together. "They pretty much decided they couldn't live without eachother," an insider said. "Kristen poured her heart out to Robert and told him it was a one-off and a mistake."

The two will be promoting their new movie, the final Twilight installment of Breaking Dawn Part II. So, maybe they're just putting on the getting back together act for those Twi-hards (like me), who love the movies even more since they're actually together in real life.

A few weeks ago, we were exposed to the preview of the new movie during the MTV Video Music Awards, where RPatz introduced it with his fellow castmates (except Kristen who was looking hot at the TIFF).

Although one in Canada, one in LA, they both looked happy and radiant. I mean, they weren't glowing... but that's obviously because they weren't in the sun.

Well, one thing we do know: Kristen knows how to apologize and to stop smoking because when she had parted from pattinson, she began to smoke cigarettes and use only energy drinks. She released this statement after the cheating scandal broke: 'This momentary indescretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my live, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I'm so sorry.'

Pregnant Kate Middleton Smoking In Topless Photos?

Kate Middleton is enduring the humiliation of being caught topless by some pesky paparazzo with aplomb. So far, she has managed to put on a brave face and pretend as if the world hasn't seen her naked. Topless pictures are not so terribly scandalous, but the fact she was smoking in those pictures is pretty damning.

The Duchess of Cambridge has managed to create the image of the perfect fairytale princess. She carries herself with dignity and dresses demurely as befitting to someone in a royal position. She has managed to make looking feminine cool again.

The topless photos show the perfect Kate smoking. A habit she was said to have ditched before she married Prince William. Old habits die hard. Kate has managed to keep her nasty little habit very quiet, but now the world knows what she really does when no one is looking.

Is she setting a bad example for the millions of little girls who look up to her? Without a doubt, yes. Hopefully, none of those little girls will see the pictures of the Princess smoking a cigarette, but in this day and age, it will be nearly impossible to shield them from the photos.

The pictures certainly quiet the rumors she is already pregnant. Or at least one would hope Kate Middleton would not be smoking during her pregnancy. The Queen will likely forbid it.

Types of Cigarettes

There is no type of safe cigarette, but there certainly is a wide array of them. Different types of cigarettes are usually classified by flavor, but specialty cigarettes provide different features, such as smokeless or electronic cigarettes. Specialty cigarettes are normally considered novelty items, and are generally harder to obtain than the normal types.

Non-Menthol Filtered Cigarettes

Non-menthol cigarettes with a filter are the most common type of cigarette. They come in two standard lengths, "kings" and "100's." 100's are longer, but often skinnier than king-sized cigarettes. They come in full flavor, light and ultra light varieties, the difference being the strength of the flavor.

Menthol Filtered Cigarettes

Menthol cigarettes come in the same sizes as non-menthol filtered cigarettes. The difference is that the tobacco is mixed with a substance called menthol, imbuing them with a minty flavor. There are full flavor, light, and ultra light menthol cigarettes as well.

Roll Your Own

Some people choose to roll their own cigarettes to save on cost. These cigarettes can be filtered, by making them with a rolling machine, or unfiltered by using papers that are gummed on one side.

Special Flavors

Some cigarettes come with different flavoring options added. Clove, orange, vanilla, and cherry are some of the options available. These are generally only found in specialty shops, and are usually more costly.

Novelty Cigarettes

Electronic cigarettes and smokeless cigarettes are two types of novelty cigarettes. Electronic cigarettes vaporize the nicotine, do not contain tobacco and do not create any first or secondhand smoke, but allow the smoker to still get the rush of nicotine, the main drug in tobacco.

Tobacco firms to be hit by Russia smoking ban

Russia is set to bring in tough new tobacco rules could see shock images on cigarette packets and smoking banned in some public places.

The Russian Federation is the world's second largest market for tobacco products after China.

According to the World Health Association around two out five - 39% - of Russia's 143m people are habitual smokers.

This compares with 28% of people in China and 27% in the U.S.A.

Russia's Deputy Health Minister Sergei Velmiakin announced that the government would submit a law banning smoking in public places such as restaurants by the start of November .

The government also unveiled a series of graphic pictures, including of a gangrenous foot and a still-born baby, that will be printed on cigarette packets.

"Global experience shows that shocking pictures on cigarette packs significantly influenced changes in perception of smoking by smokers themselves," the country's health ministry said.

Russia loses 1.5tr roubles (£29.3bn) a year, or 2.5% of gross domestic product, because of premature deaths caused by smoking, Velmiaikin said.

The legal changes come despite fierce opposition from some of the world's largest cigarette makers, including British American Tobacco.

They claim smoking bans or extra taxes will not change Russia's smoking culture but will instead hurt small businesses and encourage smuggling.

Tobacco firms have benefitted from growing demand for their products in emerging markets, as incomes rise and laxer health regulations make it easier to entice smokers than in traditional Western markets.

At 1530 on Tuesday shares in British American Tobacco were off 2.2% at 3,260.50p.

Japan Tobacco, which lobbied against the changes, dropped 4% on Tuesday following the announcement.
