The sophisticated social structure of Teen Girl World is full of social intrigue and provides a political landscape for some teenagers to assume social power over their peers. Girl cliques are complex and multi-layered and most girls take on a role within the clique. Social positions within the clique are not static, as a girl may lose her position within the hierarchy to another girl and may move up and down the social totem.
In her book, “Queen Bees and Wannabes,” author Rosalind Wiseman suggests that there are at least seven (7) different roles that girls take on within the structure of a social clique. These roles make up the social fabric within the clique and determine how each child will influence or impact relationships with others around them.
The leader of the clique is usually the queen bee. For this girl, her popularity is based on fear and control. Through a combination of charisma, looks, money, will, strength, and manipulation, this girl reigns supreme among her peers and can weaken friendships among other girls, thereby strengthening her own power and influence. Most queen bees are unwilling to acknowledge the cruelty of their actions. She is the center of attention and people value being around her energy and power.
The second in command within the all-girl clique is the Sidekick. She is the closest to the queen bee and will back her no matter what in a thirst to deflect some of her power. She shares the gestures (and often the clothing style!) Of the queen bee. Together, they appear to the other girls as an impenetrable force. They often intimidate and silence other girls to advance their own agenda.
Information and gossip with each other is the currency of the adolescent world. The banker is the role within the girl’s clicks that spreads this seemingly valuable information. Create chaos wherever you go by storing information about your colleagues and distributing it at strategic intervals for your own benefit. The banker can have a lot of power within the clique.
Usually there is a girl in the gang who can also be friends with other girls or be part of another girl gang. This is the role of The Floater. He has friends in different groups and can move freely between them. She may have “protective” characteristics that protect her from the cruelties of other girls, perhaps good looks, good grades, etc. You avoid conflict within your main clique and you may have a higher self-esteem than others because you do not base your self-esteem image on being accepted within the clique.
The Torn Bystander is constantly in conflict between doing the right thing and his allegiance to the clique. She is frequently caught in the middle of conflicts between the other girls. You can even rationalize the disrespectful behavior of the queen bee and others, despite knowing that it is wrong. By partnering with the other girls in the clique, this role values access to popularity and high social status.
Doing anything to be in the good graces of Queen Bee, The Pleaser / Wannabe will enthusiastically back Queen Bee and Sidekick no matter what. She will imitate clothing, style, and whatever else she feels will increase or enhance her position in the group. She is motivated above all else to please the girl above her on the social totem pole. This role is determined not to seem like he’s trying too hard to fit in.
The Target is the victim of the clique, created by the other girls to be humiliated, ridiculed and excluded. The social hierarchy of the clique is maintained by having someone clearly at the bottom of the social totem. Any challenge to the status of the queen bee, or to the balance of power within the group, can make a girl a target of the clique. Many times this role will feel totally powerless over the cruelty of the other girls.
Parents can make a difference at Girl World. Understanding the roles within a girl group can help parents better understand what their daughter may be going through during her middle or high school day. Different parenting styles will affect the way a father reacts to a girl’s experiences in this social structure. Active and healthy listening and exploring problem solving techniques will help girls to be better equipped to navigate Girl World.

After the gloomy Assassin’s Creed IIIUbisoft is ready to return to greatness with the fourth installment in the killer franchise. One of the fundamental problems with the previous game was that it wasn’t that much fun. After playing the game a lot and trying all its tricks, it’s safe to say that Assassin’s creed the franchise is back on its feet.
The first big change is the environment. Just looking at the art on the box, you’ll immediately realize that you are a swashbuckling pirate, Han Solo-style, which is strange considering this game is set before the third installment. Maybe they had trouble finding an interesting setting after the Revolutionary War, or maybe they wanted to emphasize Assassin’s Creed IIIBest feature: ship battles.
Either way, the stage works wonders. The atmosphere here is almost as important as the main character, Edward Kenway himself. This will be the closest you will get to being a scoundrel pirate in the 1700s. You’ll have the wind carrying your custom pirate ship across the Caribbean, and you might find yourself getting into a few drunken fights along the way. The game is loaded with precise pieces to set the time. It’s your playground, so go live out your Jack Sparrow fantasies!
You will play as Edward Kenway, a pirate who yearns for something more. Throughout the ten-hour campaign, you will find him at odds with his fellow pirates and his quest to discover more about the Assassin group. The story is very entertaining and Mr. Kenway is one of the best video game characters since John Marston in 2009. Red dead redemption.
As you begin the single player adventure, you will notice how capable Edward really is. This was the first time in a Assassin’s creed game where you don’t feel helpless at first. Edward is a cunning pirate first and foremost and can kick some serious butt, and luckily the game proves it. One of my favorite additions was the use of Edward’s arsenal. Not only limited to concealed wrist guards or even cutlasses, you can use a variety of pistols. With these flintlock pistols, Edward takes them out and fires them individually. It was a lot of fun and satisfying to take down a poor regiment of British and Spanish troops at the same time.
Along with the series’ land gameplay, you’ll also have plenty to do in the ocean. Being a pirate means that you will be in charge of your own ship. You can customize the appearance and armament of your boat to your heart’s content. When you face enemies in the open sea, you can paralyze them enough to tackle them. This was one of my favorite features and it makes you feel like a real pirate.
There is also a lot to do besides the main story. On board your ship you can dive deep sea to collect resources, you can also hunt creatures that live in the sea and on land to improve your equipment. The game is also an open world. The map is vast and it is impressive to land on an island, jump out of your ship and continue your mission, wherever you are.
With multiplayer, there are also many functions. It was nothing special, but it is entertaining enough to keep you busy. They also have a benefit system, similar to Obligations which allows you to customize all your features and equipment. This part of the game will not replace your copies of Battlefield, Obligations gold aura for long. It’s a nice but more or less forgettable feature.
If you’ve already played this game on Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, should you buy the next-gen versions? Probably not. They didn’t add anything notable to the Xbox One or PlayStation 4 version of the game, other than sharper visuals like shadows, foamy water, and swaying plant life. I will say that if you skipped the purchase on the previous consoles, go out and buy this game now. It’s the most feature-rich single-player experience on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Don’t wait to show off this game to your friends or family to demonstrate what the new systems can do graphically.
General, Assassin’s creed iv it’s a huge improvement over last year’s delivery. Add a nicer main character, a story that makes sense, and gameplay that’s really fun. There are a few hiccups, like the typical “follow your prey” objectives, bland multiplayer, and sometimes buggy platforming situations, but nothing that will negatively affect your gameplay. With that said, Assassin’s creed iv it’s one of your best bets this holiday season.

With so much attention to full suspension and carbon fiber, you’d think steel stiffeners are dead. Well I’m glad I can tell you they’re alive and well. With the explosion of 29 “wheeled bikes, the steel hardtail has made a comeback. All the properties we love about steel bikes are present in the Soma Juice. Tough yet smooth ride. Reasonably light with a snappy feel. Soma Juice is a trail bike for all tastes that can adopt whatever personality you want.
The look is distinctive with the curved top tube creating a unique profile and providing plenty of legroom. With rear entry dropouts and a derailleur hanger, the Juice can be built in single gear or geared, depending on your mood. It has enough tire clearance at the rear to drive a 2.3 “tire with plenty of mud clearance.
For a season riding the Soma Juice, I grew it single gear, geared, and as a road bike with drop bars and skinny tires. I spent most of my time racing him during endurance events (8 hours solo) as a single speed. The handling was solid with the usual stability of 29 “wheels at high speeds. The combination of a short wheelbase and a stiff fork made for a quick drop out of the saddle. On technical terrain, the low bottom bracket allowed for the occasional bump of the pedal, but no worse than most bikes.
It’s hard to quantify the differences in how a bike rides, as it is primarily felt, but the Soma Juice is a fun bike to ride. I had my best racing results of the last 5 years on this bike, so this bike has a special place in my heart. The Juice has the benefits of a 29 “wheel with the old-school feel of a good steel hardtail. Built with a Bontrager carbon hardtail fork, Chris King wheels and On One Mary bar, the complete bike weighed 23 pounds.
Constructed from heat-treated Tange Prestige double-butted tubing, the Juice strikes a balance between price, ride quality, and weight. They could have made it light by making it with Reynolds 853 or True Temper OX Platinum, but it would have increased the price drastically. Available from Soma as a frame only, you can build it yourself or get a complete bike from your favorite store. The Soma Juice is the kind of bike that turns heads but still performs great on the trails. You won’t see many of them in the local racing or group ride scene, so you can have something unique without breaking the bank.

The Riesling grape variety is quite unique because it retains its identity where it is grown, unlike many other varieties. It is grown not only in Germany, where it originated, but also in neighboring Alsace and Austria, Italy, California, cooler parts of Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and Chile.
Most wine drinkers would give Riesling ample space in supermarket aisles when looking for a white wine, targeting the highly rated Chardonnay or the safest Sauvignon Blanc. But very few people would consider a Riesling dry wine of interest, and there are several reasons why some professionals consider it the queen of wines.
Unfortunately, most wine drinkers have come across those terribly sweeter Rieslings produced in Germany, in the 1970s and later, for a largely unsuspected mainly British market. These wines were produced for consumers who only wanted one thing from a wine, low cost. The word “quality” was not very big in the vocabulary at the time, so quantity certainly outweighed quality. Many drinkers reveled in those bland, sickly sweet and uncharacteristic wines, but how things have changed for the better.
Today, wine drinkers have become much more perceptive about the type of wine and the style they drink. This, in turn, has meant that winemakers have put quality at the forefront of production to do what supermarkets demand on behalf of their more informed audiences. So not only do we have a wine drinking public that is more interested in your choice of wines, we also have winemakers who have upped their game to produce wonderful and interesting wines to pair with. This is good for both parties, and that is why the Riesling variety is being seen more and more.
So why do I think a well-made dry Riesling is the best white wine?
- First of all, if the growing year is good with lots of sun, lots of natural sugars will be produced to create the desired amount of natural sweetness to balance the higher acid content of this variety. (Note: natural sweetness is very different from artificial sweetness.)
- Riesling produces a good level of acidity which is vital to its aging potential (low acid wines do not age well). Therefore, as the wine ages, it will soften and show all its hidden characteristics. This is absolutely vital for any wine that must be deposited for many years.
- It is full of lovely delicate citrus flavors and aromas with examples of tasting notes such as:
- “with the characteristic of tropical fruits and lychee”
- “lemongrass, lime and some underlying honeydew melon”
- “aromas of peach, apricot and green apple”
- A light touch or spray (carbon dioxide bubbles) makes the wine crisp and refreshing, acting like a straw to cleanse the palate before the other flavors are detected. This slight effervescence usually occurs more in wines made in stainless steel tanks where hygiene is excellent. CO2 bubbles are the remains captured from fermentation, a sign of good winemaking.
- After detecting the dew, the taste buds will now encounter some more complex flavors, such as rich honey and oily aromas that give the wine a long, steely finish. These flavors will change slightly over time, which is why it is such an interesting and versatile strain.
Are there any good sweeter Rieslings nowadays?
Absolutely. There are numerous attractive sweet wines such as the Auslese and Eiswein styles that are affected by botrytis or ‘noble rot’. This rot is considered “noble” as it encourages a high concentration of sweetness in the ripe grape affected by the fungus, which is highly desirable.
Riesling’s long history has meant that it has been used in stock grafts with over 40 crosses made in the last 100 years. This has allowed its strong characteristics to be transferred to the subsequent stock. A typical example is:
- Riesling x Sylvaner = Muller Thurgau
- Riesling x Trollinger = Kerner
Pairing the Riesling with the food: It is excellent with a cheese fondu, baked fennel with Parmesan, artichokes or beef stroganof. Alternatively, enjoy it just as a snack.
Acclaimed Wine Writer and Master of Wine Jancis Robinson says:
“Riesling is clearly one of the best vines in the world, possibly the one that produces the best white wines of all”
from his book ‘Vines, Grapes and Wines’.
So is Riesling the best white wine? Well, if it grows and matures well, it sure is a competitor!

The NY Post’s story of the Francis X Cabrini Church, closed in Massachusetts over a court settlement in a sex abuse scandal, would be a good read for most Christians. After losing an appeal to the Supreme Court, they performed their last service. One 86-year-old member said, “We fought the good fight. We did everything we could.” When it comes to their religious congregations, that’s more than most Americans can say. “
The Catholic Church spent $ 2 million on New York’s top lobbying firms to block reform of the child sex law. (NY Daily News 5-30-16) The word “catholic” means universal. That is a broad category that can suit everyone. The problem is that God loves everyone and we are all sinners, but He hates the sin (selfishness and abuse) that defines His Word. In his Sermon on the Mount, Christ said that the wide road leads to destruction. We must be willing to repent. God gives victory to those who seek his help. Paying the priest weekly is a weakness.
Most Americans fit the image of a church in Revelation 3 that is lukewarm on materialism. He believes himself rich in many things and in need of nothing while Christ is outside, asking to enter. The fact that it also represents “truth” suggests that something important is missing.
# 1. “Church” is translated from the Greek word eklesia, which means “called”. Members who give their lives to Christ are called to be like salt and light: in the world but not in the world. If our focus is on what we can accumulate, we have lost our identity with Christ, who gave those things to do. of others of yours. priority.
# 2. The court action reflects the opinion of a judge. A judgment is announced in Revelation 14, where the Greek word is krisis. The whole world is entering a crisis. We sing, “God bless America,” but he cannot bless what he has cursed. We say: “In God we trust.” But events to come will test who we trust. If we don’t align ourselves with clear statements from His Word, it’s just talking and it doesn’t matter if a “high” court says it’s okay, what’s next will show that society’s confused systems are down, Revelation 18.
# 3. The good news is that God can save people who turn to Him despite the surrounding destruction. This is seen in the fall of Jericho, a type of the fall of Babylon in Revelation 17, 18. Rahab was a harlot living in Jericho, but she risked her life to protect two Israelites and was rewarded for switching sides by forgiving her. family and we find it in the genealogy of Christ, spelled Rajab in Matthew.
The Bible calls us out of Babylon, a metaphor for the confused systems of society. Include
** Medical care. This is falsely called ‘healthcare’; but the relationship is inverse. The more we take drugs, the worse our health becomes because drugs do not address the true cause, which in most cases is something we put in our mouths, perhaps for years. The drug adds the risk of an adverse reaction to the drug, which is also a leading cause of illness and death. The Greek word is pharmakeia in Revelation 18 which deceives “all nations”. A simple plant-based diet, clean air (no tobacco), and water instead of alcohol, tea, or coffee, with rest, exercise, and prayer will help most people reverse their illness.
** Education. The higher the education, the higher the cost and the college education is mostly useless with many subjects that are not needed for life. All the math that most people need can be learned in elementary school, and we could learn the balance of reading, writing, and speaking in high school along with a good general science course. Why bother most young people with college courses in music, art, math, science, civics, or English literature? It would be better to focus on learning a practical trade by which one can earn a living. The Bible is loaded with lessons about life. One of my classmates became impoverished due to tuition and spent most of his life driving a taxi; another went to work at his father’s gas station.
** Government. The Bible depicts the nations of this world as ferocious beasts of prey in Daniel 7, largely due to abuse by leaders. This author visited the US Senate offices with medical literature to show prescription drugs as a leading cause of illness and death until a senator said: They’re wasting their time, they own us, talking about donations of drugs for his re-election campaign. They act in their own selfish interest while refusing to retire on the same basis as us.
God gave Israel a law that was based on self-government and the Constitution of the United States was excellent for the same reason that it minimized the need for Washington. The citizen was sovereign with part of his power given to the state and part of the state power ceded to the federal government, but now that process has been reversed by thugs who do not care about the Constitution despite their oath.
** Religion. Martin Luther would be in agony if he knew that the movement he started is ending, as church leaders are eager to embrace Rome, not seeing her as the whore of Revelation 17 and fornication with kings is the church’s involvement in the governments. The church wants laws like Laudato Si ‘and Dies Domini (Sunday) with Parochiaid to help its institutions.
Benjamin Franklin wisely said, “When a religion is good, I conceive that it will sustain itself; and when it does not sustain itself, and God does not care to sustain it, its teachers are forced to ask for the help of the religion. civil society. power is a sign, I learn it, that it is bad. “
Revelation 17 shows a harlot riding on the New World Order beast – the image of the beast from Revelation 13, an Old World Order (papacy) image or likeness and will involve false worship that brings the wrath of God, chapter 14.

Once you’ve evaluated the projected income from a kennel operation, you’re ready to do some math to arrive at the correct sales price. Note that there are experts in this field whose only job is to calculate trade values. They can complete a thorough analysis of the business and come up with an estimate of the value of that business. Unfortunately, they can be prohibitively expensive … to the tune of $ 5,000. For a buyer, this could be quite expensive. So, you are forced to do your own calculations.
Some common sense calculations will help. First, you should be able to buy the business with a 20% down payment (20% is considered the minimum down payment for business loans). The business should be able to pay all the expenses plus the mortgage payment and still provide you with a decent income. Obviously, this is a sweeping generalization, so take it with a grain of salt. But, this should lead you in the right direction.
Second, you can perform a business valuation based on the capitalization rate. This is a way to measure how quickly an investment will pay off. In the kennel business, the desired cap rate is generally around 12%. The formula is the following. Trade Value = Net Operating Income / Capitalization Rate. For example, if the annual net operating income is 100,000, the calculation would be as follows. 100,000 / .12 = $ 833,333. Capitalization rates may vary by region. And you should definitely consult professionals, that is, your CPA, real estate agent, lawyer. I’ve oversimplified it, but my purpose is just to point you in the right direction.
As we determined in the previous section, when looking for that perfect lodging kennel, look for income, income, income. If they have made their books above the table, they should be able to show bank statements to show the money being deposited. Of course, some operators pocket cash without informing the government. If this is the case, it puts you in a bind. You should calculate the projected income to the best of your ability. Please note … if they can’t verify your income, they should be prepared to accept a lower offer.

Apple’s latest release highlighted the company’s new goals in the tablet and smartphone market with the iPhone 6 Plus. Its largest smartphone ever produced showed great interest in competing with a major competitor, Samsung, who recently launched the Galaxy Note 4. To decide which device belongs in your pocket, we compared its key features in a summary review.
Design and build
Both smartphones maintain the ability to be used with one hand without having to call with the other. Samsung has abandoned the use of plastic for a front housing and has opted for an aluminum structure, bringing it closer in terms of design to Apple’s iPhone, giving it that much-needed elegance. While the iPhone 6 Plus is slightly taller than the Note 4, it is significantly thinner, giving it the overall advantage in comfort. Where the Note 4 wins is with its removable back cover, allowing for easy battery service and replacement.
With the iPhone 6 Plus, you get a large 5.5-inch 1080p IPS LCD screen, while the Galaxy Note 4 gives you a larger 5.7-inch QHD Super Amoled screen with a much higher resolution of 2,560 x 1,440. pixels. When it comes to the numbers, Samsung is a clear winner, famous for its spectacular smartphone screens and fantastic contrast ratios, perfect for use in dark rooms.
Power and performance
Comparing the specifications, the Samsung is the most powerful. Powered by the latest Snapdragon processor, this device has more RAM than the iPhone and the latest Adreno GPU to handle advanced games. The iPhone 6 Plus is powered by the new A8 processor and the quad-core PowerVR GPU is just as well suited to gaming applications, but on paper it is weaker. If you are a multitasker who switches between games and emails, the Samsung Note 4 will undoubtedly perform better than the Apple device.
Both devices are great for taking photos, up close and far. The main change is the addition of optical image stabilization, great for photos in low-light environments. If you really want to know the megapixel count, Samsung offers 16 megapixels while the iPhone offers 8 megapixels, but most consumers know that this is negligible in today’s world.
As a larger device overall, it’s no surprise that Samsung has a bigger battery. But it is important to note that you also have a more advanced processor that will consume the battery supply. After extensive testing, the Samsung lasts slightly longer than the iPhone, which gets a bad rap for battery life. Fortunately, both devices charge most of their batteries extremely fast as a result of advanced technology.
If you are looking for a tablet-like smartphone that has a flawless design, ease of use, and high responsiveness, then the iPhone 6 Plus is the winner. If you are looking for something new and innovative, with higher power and more advanced technology, then the Galaxy Note 4 is a no-brainer.

Soccer fans across the country are creating an early demand for available Denver Broncos tickets that can be “begged, screwed, or borrowed.” With the return of some great 2008 starters and the addition of some top free agent picks, electricity is already in the air about the chances of a hot run for the 2009 Broncos title. This team has one of the strongest fan bases and enjoys support not only in the Rocky Mountain region of the Western Legions, but throughout the United States. Historically, when this soccer team has been in a runner-up position in the division race, the upcoming season sees players explode on the field and fans expect no less in the fall 2009 season.
Fans put their weight behind the Broncos
The Denver Broncos were one of the founding members of the American Football League. Since the 1970 merger of the AFL and NFL divisions, they have consistently been one of the leading franchises both on and off the field. With an impressive record of half a dozen AFC championships in 1977, 1986, 1987, 1989, 1997, and again in 1998, it’s easy to see why his enthusiastic fans are eagerly buying tickets to the Denver Broncos earlier in the year.
There are more than 74,000 Denver Broncos tickets available annually and season seats have sold out each year with tens of thousands of hopeful fans placing their names on a waiting list. The Denver Broncos’ 31-24 dominance over Green Bay during Super Bowl XXXII continues to be a highly heralded event and a source of great pride for players, owners and fans. The Denver team added another championship next year by taking this title once again in Super Bowl XXXIII and this back-to-back feat is something that only 5 other soccer teams have managed to accomplish.
History and highlights of the Denver Bronco franchise
The Denver Bronco AFL charter was awarded in 1959 to Bob Howsam, who owned a minor league baseball team and built the 1940s stadium for the Chicago Bears. With limited funds, the first team took to the field in old worn uniforms and socks that had vertical stripes. After 2 years, Jack Faulkner was hired as head coach and general manager. He began the job of bringing the laughingstock team to a respected sports entity, kicking off his much-ridiculed socks in a public ceremony that gave fans a chance to watch them go up in flames. While there wasn’t much happiness during the first decade of the Denver Broncos franchise, they did have their moments.
– The AFL’s first win was 13-10 in August 1960, against the Boston Patriots.
– In August 1967, the team recorded the AFL’s first victory over an NFL rival with a 13-7 victory over the Detroit Lions.
– However, the team’s lousy 39-97-4 record for the first ten years placed them at the bottom of all 8 AFL teams at the time.
A “Hail Mary” saves the Denver Broncos from being sold
It was in 1965 that the team’s luck improved when the decision to allow Atlanta to buy the Broncos was blocked. At zero hour, it was Gerald and Allan Phipps who put in the millions to buy the team and the stadium. The excitement of the fans was unprecedented and they showed their appreciation by purchasing more than 22,000 season tickets from the Denver Broncos. In 1964, not even 8,000 Denver Broncos tickets had been purchased, making this event even more staggering in scope. The city of Denver assumed ownership of the old Bears Stadium in 1968 and renamed it Mile High.
From the bottom to the mile high
Nearly 20,000 additional seats were added as Mile High expanded to accommodate 51,706 screaming spectators and supporters. In 1976, the stadium’s capacity was increased to 63,532 and then to 75,100 in 1977. With each increase in seats, fans rapidly increased their demand for tickets to the Denver Broncos. Since these early years, loyal fans have ensured that there are no unsold Denver Broncos season tickets. In the early years, the Denver Broncos were the subject of jokes and laughter as the AFL tried to establish itself as a viable contender in the world of soccer. Until 2001, when they opened the season at the world-class INVESCO soccer field in their own Mile High Stadium, they had to play on the same field used by the 1960s franchise.
Denver Bronco team records and achievements
The rich history of the Denver Broncos team is marked by appearances in playoffs or championship games in 1977, 1978 and 1979. Soccer fans now had plenty of additional reasons to stand in long lines if there was any chance of catching one of those coveted Denver Tickets. for the Broncos. This AFL powerhouse has fallen below the .500 benchmark less than 5 times since 1965 and racked up 7 AFC division titles and championships in a short 14-year span from 1977 to 1991. In 91, they had a shot at the Super Bowl XXIV title. but fell to the San Francisco 49ers. Denver is a team that demands the best of its players, and the Denver Broncos continued this championship effort by returning to the divisional playoffs in 1992, 1996 and 1997.
Tickets for the Denver Bronco continued to be one of the most popular items on the sports market during 1997 and 1998, when the team dominated all entrants and took home the ultimate Super Bowl title twice. In 1997, they attacked the famous Packers and in ’98 they destroyed the Atlanta Falcons. 2000, 2003, 2004 and 2005 were again playoff years for the Colorado team. In 2008, they had a .500 season as the team posted an 8-8 win-loss record, bringing them to second place in the division just behind San Diego. While the past 3 seasons have not seen the teams as one of the players on the field of the annual Big Game, the team is busy regrouping and setting the stage for a 2009 season that may be one of the best in its history.
2009 Season Fast Forward Review
Fans welcomed the news of the signing of some exciting new free agents to the Denver Broncos roster that included the name of quarterback Chris Simms. This is the son of soccer great Phil Simms, who as a former quarterback led his team to victory and won a Super Bowl ring. Fans are well aware of the incredible potential Chris has and hope that his Denver Broncos tickets will be used to see his team go all the way in 2009.
As a backup to Kerry Collins and Vince Young of the Tennessee Titans, it seems young Simms hasn’t been able to show the extent of his playing ability, but this may be his wildly successful year. The other names that are causing a stir in Denver are menacing JJ Arrington and LaMont Jordan. Both players have earned recognition as superior ball carriers.
Arrington is already the third running back to be signed by the Denver Bronco organization, which seems like a clear sign of where the emphasis will be placed this season. The past 4 years, Arrington has been with the Arizona Cardinals and was active in 14 of the team’s games in 2008. His stats include 183 carries for a total of 654 yards and an impressive 91 catches that gave him two touchdowns and nearly 700 yards.

I recently saw a PBS report on poverty in Haiti. Children in many parts of Haiti are malnourished and often have nothing to eat other than cookies made from dried mud. The UN estimates that 840 million people on this planet are undernourished. Hundreds of millions of people around the world are struggling with declining food resources.
What are the root causes of food insecurity? According to UNICEF, the root causes are poverty, war and civil conflict, corruption, national policies that do not promote equitable access to food for all, environmental degradation, barriers to trade, insufficient agricultural development, growth of the population, low levels of education, social and gender inequality, poor health, cultural insensitivity and natural disasters.
On June 15, 2009, the Human Rights Council held a panel discussion on the relationship between climate change and human rights. Panelist Atiq Rhaman stated that global climate change had become the greatest threat facing humanity today. Kyung-wha Kang, Deputy High Commissioner for Human Rights, said that the human impact of climate change was not only related to environmental factors but also to poverty, discrimination and inequalities.
Obviously this is a global problem that needs an immediate global solution! What can we do as citizens and as brothers and sisters of this human race? We can email and call our elected leaders asking for a change in policies on agribusiness, pollution and free trade. We can ask our senators and congressional representatives to hold hearings on agricultural practices that make sense for everyone (currently, the agrarian bill causes many farmers to lose their farms, while some wealthy owners are paid for not producing food) . We also desperately need to minimize our carbon footprints. This summer, buy a portion of seasonal fruits and vegetables from a local farmer and bike or walk whenever possible. How about buying sustainable fair trade products that benefit you, the producer and the environment?
World trade policies must be changed. Food must be distributed fairly and agricultural policies must promote sustainable growth practices. The UN policy on human rights states that all people have the right to life, food, clean water and health, home, land, property, livelihoods, employment and development. It is unfair that food insecure people are also the least responsible for the causes of global warming. The most vulnerable societies suffer terribly from climate change: frequent and prolonged floods, cyclones, storm surges, salinity intrusion, rising sea levels and droughts.
Say ‘no’ to dirt cookies! Say ‘yes’ to fair trade policies, sustainable agricultural practices and green resources!

Icelandic horses are a must see when traveling to Iceland. They are small, robust and the only breed of horse in the country. They were brought to Iceland by the Vikings between 874 and 930, and are one of the oldest horses in the world. Originally, Icelandic horses were used to plow fields and transport food and other cargo for early settlers. For centuries they lived and worked in harsh conditions, enduring natural disasters and volcanic eruptions. Through natural selection, Icelandic horses evolved into powerful creatures that could withstand whatever obstacles nature threw at them.
In Iceland these horses are purebred. To this day, no other horses are allowed to be imported into the country and exported horses cannot be returned to preserve the safe environment Icelandic horses have adapted to. Many diseases horses suffer from elsewhere have never been a problem for horses in Iceland.
Characteristics of the Icelandic horse include long, flowing manes and short size. Generally, the horse is 13 to 14 hands (52 to 56 inches) long, making it virtually a pony. However, his horse temperament considers him a horse, as does the lack of an Icelandic word for “pony”.
There are many aspects of Icelandic horses that make them special, but one of the most outstanding is that in addition to the original steps that a typical horse has (walking, trotting, galloping and galloping), they are also capable of performing a tölt, which is a fast, smooth, four-beat stride, and a flying pace, which is a two-beat stride known for its suspension and speed.
Today Icelandic horses are used for traditional agricultural work, racing, and shows. They are also used for scenic trail rides that are quite popular in Iceland. These mighty horses can show you countless glaciers, mountains, and other remarkable landscapes. Tours like these will take you back in time as you traverse the trails used by early settlers in Iceland. Icelandic horses are unusually affectionate, because their history of fighting environmental hazards has taught them not to fear nature and other living things like other breeds.
When you travel to Iceland, there are many places where you can meet and ride these horses. There are a variety of tours that will take you to different locations depending on what you would like to see. There are even tours where you can ride under the Northern Lights! Facilities such as Ishestar, Riding Iceland and Eldhestar offer rides for complete beginners and advanced cyclists. Come visit Iceland and learn about majestic Icelandic horses that are unlike any other!
