Well, here’s an announcement sure to leave a trail of broken hearts.  British heartthrob Idris Elba has been wooing ladies left and right since his stint on HBO’s ‘The Wire’.  Since then, Elba has made quite the name for himself – earning mention amongst Hollywood’s most sought after leading men.

But, if his recent announcement is anything to go by, fans should wait awhile before they see him affront another movie poster.   For, despite recent headlines that he is set to make his directorial debut with new TV drama ‘Pavement Psychologist’, the actor tells a British newspaper that he’s taking a hiatus from the big screen.

Idris Elba Via MSN:

“This year I’m not going to work as an actor so I can concentrate on music,” he told Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper. “I do it from the heart, not for the money.”


The announcement comes shortly after news that Elba, who DJs under the name Driis, has a seven week residency at a London nightclub.

    Revealed: Secret to Reducing Air Conditioning

    Certain results indicate how each American household pay an estimate of $1000 for both heating and
    air conditioning systems every year. Indeed there are very good ways to cut down on these expenses without sacrificing the benefit of air conditioning during hot summer days in any way.

    The true secret to reducing Air Conditioning costs lies in your maintenance activities and making the right purchase of air conditioner units based on your needs.

    Currently, there are 3 common kinds of air conditioners, central,
    freestanding and window on the US market. Each kind has its own pros
    and cons. Before purchasing any air conditioners for your home, there is
    something that you need to understand. Not all the types
    of units on the market require the same kind of maintenance. 

    Think about the possible utility and maintenance costs when you purchase your unit.
    What is the cooling coverage that you truly need?
    It may seem easy to install a centralized system for
    your entire house. But the question is whether it is necessary. 

    Apart from the high expense of purchasing this system, there
    are the possible high costs of repair and maintenance. If you only want cool air in certain rooms because they are the hottest in your home during a hot
    summer season, then opt for the window or freestanding
    kind. The key difference between the freestanding type and the window type is
    in terms of mobility. You can move a freestanding air conditioner from one room to another
    easily enough. 

    Buying this type will be a great idea if you intend to rotate the usage of the
    unit in different rooms. But if your mind is fixed on having a
    few units in specific rooms, then the window type might be a good option. Since the window type would
    be up on the wall, it would not take up space in the room like how the freestanding
    type would. When it comes to the window type, you have
    the choice of selecting one that comes with or without duct. 

    Apart from being compact and small, the ductless kind is rather easy to install on any wall.

    Compared to the one that comes with a duct, it is also more energy saving.
    A good way to cool the temperature in the other rooms that have no
    air-conditioners is to use oscillating fans. Another smart way is to purchase
    a few 5 ton air conditioners to cover the space for your entire house
    instead of buying a centralized unit. 

    But this depends on how large your home is. Apart from the cost of purchase,
    there is the expense for maintenance. Normally,
    the cost of maintenance of a centralized air conditioning system is much higher compared to
    the freestanding or window types. To reduce maintenance
    costs, think about performing simple maintenance
    activities on your own.

    For example, you can take a look at the filter and change it
    if it requires changing. Normally, the frequency
    for changing or checking the filter will be mentioned in the air conditioner manufacturer’s manual.
    Some findings show that changing the filters can help in reducing monthly utility costs by 10 to 20%. 

    Though it is fine to carry out a simple maintenance task such as
    changing a filter, it is best to leave the more complex maintenance or
    repair tasks to Air Conditioning Experts. Now and
    then, call them up to check on the state of your
    air conditioner units and do what is necessary for their
    optimum working condition – an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
