Love and Union “Who ran to help me when I fell, or kissed the place to make it well? ....My mother.” are simply for being just that, we lose any false limits on what we are capable of giving. Love defines value: We are unable to love unless we value ourselves and we only truly value that which we love and this is why we must choose carefully what we are going to love. One such primary choice is between the living world and constructs of value. For example, do we choose the land and its living inhabitants or do we choose “property”? Do we choose a person for who they are or what they can “do” for us? But the most important choice is, do we choose our self or our “image”? In each case, we know the truth of what should be valued, just as we know the body that carries us through life is a wondrous living entity almost unto itself, though the dominant construct says it is a machine of assembled parts. Can one look at a baby and honestly see a machine? When we see images from space of our world and other ones, our heart knows we are seeing a living system, not a machine. When we see these things, we see life and we know it is very valuable.

Loving is not possible without some level of love for oneself. To love is to recognize the intrinsic value of something and loving oneself is to see that within oneself. This is always learned from being loved – whether we come into contact with the love from the Universe itself, or we are loved by another: When we know we are valued by another for what and who we

Mother’s Union with her Child A popular saying is that God cannot be present everywhere and so he created mothers. The relationship between a mother and a child is very special and that is as good as truth.

A mother means the world to a child, it is she who protects, nourishes, and bestows her

child with love and care. It is she who sacrifices many things in life to give the best to her children. Mother's day is that special day that gives you the perfect opportunity to shower your mom with your love and affection. It gives you the opportunity to tell your mother how much she means to you and pamper her with generous gifts. However, you need not spend a fortune and buy expensive gifts for your mom. You can make her day special with beautiful quotes, poems, and loving words. Let her know how special her love for you is, and acknowledge all the pain and sacrifice, she took to raise you the way you are. Thank her for her unconditional love, for forgiving you when you did something wrong, and held you when the world around condemned you. Thank her for being at your side when you needed her the most. Remember how she stayed awake at night to protect you when you used to fall sick. Recall all the good times you shared with your mom and tell her how you cherish every moment of your early days. If you run out of words or do not know how to express your emotions, then here are the lyrics of a famous poem for mother's day titled "A mother's love" beautifully written by Helen Steiner Rice. Your mom will definitely cherish it and appreciate your effort.

( Curiosities ) “Why the polar bear loves you? “ “Shocking photos of the only man who can touch a polar bear” The images were published by the Daily Mail, which reports that Mark, 60, and his wife Dawn, 49, of Abbotsford, British Columbia (BC), Canada, dedicated to training the largest land predator in the world to star in TV commercials-budget. She even appeared in movies such as "Alaska" in 1995, when he was only weeks old. With their incredibly intimate bond Agee even bear hugs owner Mark as she rears up on her hind legs to over seven feet.

The Polar Bear Agee closes its jaws around the neck of Mark, in an amazing demonstration of how much you trust the huge bear. Abbot Mark Dumas is the only man in the world that can touch a polar bear. It is so much closeness, which is able to get into the pool with the animal 16 years of age and embrace it. Or put your head in its mouth without fear of being bitten.

“If anwone elqe rpied rhiq rhew uosld end up as Agee's dinner, the only people in the whole world she likes are me and my wife. I have worked with bears in this way for over 40 years, so I can read Agee's body language and know how to behave safely around her. Agee has rules and we are always working inside rhoqe.” said Mark.

Mark and Dawn took Agee on when she was just eight weeks old. With links to Hollywood through previous work with animals, Mark was approached by director Fraser Heston - the son of screen legend Charlton - 16 years ago. Mark and Dawn went through a lengthy application to show they had the facilities to care for her. After being approved they transported the tiny cub seen here at their old family home in Mission, BC, just after her arrival - to Canada.

“She lited inqide osp home fop rhe fipqr few weeks and we hand-reared her, eventually a time came when she was so big we had to move her outside into her own enclosure. Now Agee spends her time living in her new enclosure on rented land near Mark and Dawn's home in Abbotsford, and on the road uopking on TV and film qerq.” At home, Mark enjoys 'play time' with hep. “Eapliep in rhe mopning qhe'q mope playful and relaxed and she lets me roll around with her. We wrestle for fun and sometimes we fall asleep on her grassy lawn together. It's a great way to unwind after a bad day.”

“She loteq hep uopk, rhew ape evrpemelw intelligent animals and you can see she gets enjoyment out of being stimulated through her work. She could never have lived wild so it's important to us that we keep her active and thinking. That's why I like swimming with her and playing on rhe laun.” In the evenings Agee is fed on mountains of protein-rich salmon, chicken or other meats, along with carbohydrates she gets from highquality dog food and vitamin supplements.

“In rhe uild qhe uosld be earing qeal bsr we can't buy that so we have to try and replicate a fat-rich diet, because they scavenge in the summer - when they are off the sea ice and on dry land - they hate tepw adaprable dierq.” Amazingly, Agee seems to have favorites between men and women. “She gerq tepw jealosq of orhep uomen talking to Mark, she's happy with me doing it but if any other women are aposnd qhe gerq tepw poqqeqqite of him.” said Dawn.

What Did She Say? Tips on Learning Reported Speech

Reported Speech is a very useful and substantive topic to approach for advanced level students. It is simply relaying or repeating what another person said. Sounds simple, right? Unfortunately, it is complicated to introduce and can be somewhat cumbersome to devise natural ways to practice it. Following these tips on teaching reported speech will benefit your students and provide some clear guidelines on how best to approach a notoriously sticky grammar point. 1. Grammar Nuances To use reported speech, we are in one instance having a conversation or overhearing something, and then repeating it or reporting it to a third party. In order to properly report what was said, we have to alter the tenses that were

used. Here explanation:




If the reporting verb (like said) is in the past, the reported speech will also be in past tense. The form is generally one step back into the past from the original. Example: “Maria said the exam was

difficult.”  Quoted speech that is changed to reported speech changes tense according to this rule: simple past, present perfect, and past perfect all must change to past perfect for reported speech. Present tense sometimes stays as present tense if it is immediately reported, but often changes to past tense if it is reported later.  Pronouns in quoted speech must also be changed in reported speech. If you are having a conversation with

John, and John says, “I am hungry.” It is reported as this: John says he is hungry. 2. Questions Another thing to point out about reported speech is that forming questions can be a little tricky. When reporting questions, it is especially important to pay attention to sentence order. When reporting yes /no questions then you can create the reported question using if. When reporting questions using question words (why, where, when) use the question word. Here are some examples:  Marla asked, "Do you want to drive?" = Marla asked me if I

wanted to drive.  Kiko asked, “Did John go to school?”= Kiko asked if John

has gone to school.

 Dave asked, "Where did you put the bag?" = Dave asked me

where I have put the bag.

3. Triangles And News  Triangles This is always an interesting one to setup and there are a lot of ways in which you can vary it to your needs. You have three students: Student A is talking to student B and Student C will be the third party. Student B’s job will be to listen to student A and turn to student C and report what student A said. You can come up with a number of scenarios if you want to increase the practice and turn the triangles into mini role plays. A good topic is planning a party or outing of some kind. Student A is the organizer and calls student B and C on the phone and reports what the other two students have said. Another fun one is to do a lesson on gossip and use reported speech to show how it is that gossip can travel so quickly, and also how the story will change when the reporters report incorrect information. 

News Reporter

This is a good activity to do once the students have gotten some amount of exposure to reported speech. It takes some creativity on the students’ part and again, there are numerous ways in which

you could set it up. One way is to have them read a news story and report the news to the class in a newscaster tone. Another way could be to have a reporter doing an interview on a particular topic. For example student A’s house was broken into and student B is the newscaster there to get the story. Student B will then report the story back to the class. Students can do this activity in small or large groups and then report back after practicing. They could also rotate around the room and each pair gets a chance to report and interview on multiple topics while taking turns with their roles.

Mother’s Day In its present form, Mother's Day was established by Anna Marie Jarvis, with the help of Philadelphia merchant John Wanamaker following the death of her mother Ann Jarvis on May 9, 1905. A small service was held on May 12, 1907 in the Andrew's Methodist Episcopal Church in Grafton, West Virginia where Anna's mother had been teaching Sunday school. But the first "official" service was on May 10, 1908 in the same church, accompanied by a larger ceremony in the Wanamaker Auditorium in the Wanamaker's store on Philadelphia. The next year the day was reported to be widely celebrated in New York.

Jarvis then campaigned to establish Mother's Day first as a U.S. national holiday and then later as an international holiday. The holiday was declared officially by the state of West Virginia in 1910, and the rest of states followed quickly. On May 8, 1914, the U.S. Congress passed a law designating the second Sunday in May as Mother's Day and requesting a proclamation. On May 9, 1914 President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation declaring the first national Mother's Day as a day for American citizens to show the flag in honor of those mothers whose sons had died in war. In 1934, U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt approved a stamp commemorating the holiday.

Mother's Day is celebrated to honor all mothers and express gratitude for the hardships they bear in bringing up a child. Most countries including US, Australia, Canada and India celebrate Mother’s Day on the second Sunday of May. Mother’s Day came into being due to the efforts made by Ms. Julia Ward Howe and Ms. Anna Jarvis. The Resolution for having a dedicated Mother's Day was signed by US President Woodrow Wilson on May 8, 1914. Since then people across the world have been celebrating Mother’s Day with joy and devotion.

One relationship which is always with us is the one we share with

our mothers. They are our guiding force and are responsible for making us who we are. Mothers also shape our lives and our personalities and crediting them for the same is something one should do at every opportunity.

Mothers are everything for us when we are small...our lives revolve around her. For everything that we need we call mother. To protect us from all perceivable dangers we want her around us. To take us out we hold her arms. To kiss away our wounds we run to her. And for a warm hug and love we look for her. She is the focal point of our lives, the greatest human being in the world or should we say divinity on earth. On the special occasion of Mother’s Day pay tribute to your mother - the greatest blessing of God on you. There is simply no way we can ever really thank mother for all she has done for us. She is the one who will be awake all night when we are sick. Praying to God to make us well and be ever ready to bear the pain that we may be experiencing. She is the one to wake up early in the morning to make the nicest tiffin and endure all our tantrums. Mothers are the ones who would

forever complain that we are not eating enough or not eating right. They would cook all sorts of things so that we are strong and healthy. Mothers in fact, worry more for our examinations than we must. They would take pains to complete our school projects leaving all other works behind while we play around with friends or just while away time watching movies.

Mothers are the one on whom we put all the blame for our failures. We would not hesitate once to point her single faux pas though she would not miss even a slightest opportunity to praise us. Isn't it tough to imagine how she must have borne our temper tantrums when we were teenagers. And how hard we must have made her life by behaving so rude and difficult. And yet she was so astonishingly cool. It easy for the kids to be so demanding from parents,

especially mothers as we take her affection and care so much for granted. Most often to the extent of selfishness. Mother’s Day is the right time to apologize for all the troubles that we gave to our moms, without even realizing at most times how troublesome we must have been to her.

Mothers Day is the perfect day to celebrate the joys of having a mother. It is the time to make amends for not being able to spend quality time with her. So turn your wrongs right by making all efforts to give a perfect Mother’s Day to your mother. Think about her likes and dislikes about gifts and idea on celebration and act accordingly.

Germany in their joint effort to master the European debt and currency crisis and save the euro.

François Hollande defeated President Nicolas Sarkozy on Sunday, becoming the first Socialist elected president of France since François Mitterrand. Mr. Hollande campaigned on a gentler and more inclusive France, but his victory will also be seen as a challenge to the German-dominated vision of economic austerity as a way out of the euro crisis. Mr. Sarkozy became the latest European leader to lose his post amid economic upheaval and the first French incumbent to be rejected since 1981. In his five years in office, he propelled France, and himself, into a more central role in world affairs, rejoining the NATO military command and helping drive an international military campaign in Libya. He also proved to be a difficult but crucial ally of Chancellor Angela Merkel of

That project, however, received multiple blows on Sunday, when Greek voters sent their own message against austerity. They handed the two main parties, both of which had pledged to follow harsh international bailout terms, significant losses as they streamed to parties on the far left and far right that have opposed budget cuts. In the process, voters cast into question the ability of any party to form a government soon, let alone continue with the austerity program.

For their part, French voters may not like belt-tightening, but both Mr. Hollande and Mr. Sarkozy had promised to balance the budget in the next five years. The balance between reducing the debt and addressing popular anger is proving complicated for Europeans, and Mr. Hollande has said that he intends to give “a new direction to Europe,” demanding that a European Union treaty limiting debt be expanded to include measures to produce economic growth.

Domestically, he has promised to raise taxes on big corporations and raise the tax rate to 75 percent for those earning more than one million euros a year. Calling his victory “a fresh start,” Mr. Hollande pronounced: “Austerity need not be Europe’s fate.” The vote was viewed domestically as a rejection of Mr. Sarkozy and his relentless effort to appeal to the voters of the far-right National Front. “I take the measure of the honor that’s been given me and the challenge that awaits me,” Mr. Hollande said before cheering supporters in the central French town of Tulle, which he represents in Parliament. Mr. Hollande’s victory was narrow but undisputed. With 95 percent of the vote counted, official results showed him with 51.6 percent of the vote while Mr. Sarkozy, of the center-right Union for a Popular Movement, had 48.4 percent, The Associated Press said. Speaking earlier to party members, Mr. Sarkozy said that he would not lead the party into June’s legislative elections and that now, “I become a citizen among you.” He urged supporters not to give in to division, though, as he saw those elections as winnable for the party. The French and

Greek elections were closely watched in European capitals and particularly in Berlin, where Ms. Merkel has led the drive to cure the euro zone debt and banking crisis with deep budget cuts and caps on future spending. She spoke on the telephone with Mr. Hollande on Sunday night, congratulating him on his victory in the election, according to a statement by her spokesman, Steffen Seibert. Mr. Hollande has said for months that his first trip will be to Berlin. But Ms. Merkel herself was embroiled in electoral politics on Sunday, suffering setbacks in elections in the state of Schleswig-Holstein, where her party appeared to be losing its hold on the state Parliament. With another election coming May 13 in North Rhine-Westphalia, Ms. Merkel is not viewed as having much room domestically to compromise on the critical issues of inflation and debt limits.

How to use aloe vera?

Aloe has been well known for centuries for its healing properties, and both oral intake and topical dressings have been documented to facilitate healing of any kind of skin wound, burn, or scald - even speeding recovery time after surgery. Situations to try it on include blisters, insect bites, rashes, sores, herpes, urticaria, athlete's foot, fungus, vaginal infections, conjunctivitis, sties, allergic reactions, and dry skin. The raw plant is best, but commercial preparations can also be used, especially for taking orally, as this plant tastes horrible. Other topical uses include acne, sunburn, frostbite (it appears to prevent decreased blood flow), shingles, screening out x-ray radiation, psoriasis, preventing scarring, rosacea, warts, wrinkles from aging, and eczema. Internally, aloe is showing real promise in the fight against AIDS, and the virus has become undetectable in some patients who used it on a regular basis, due to its immune system stimulant properties. It also seems to help prevent opportunistic infections in cases of HIV and AIDS. It appears to be of help in cancer patients (including lung cancer) by activating the white blood cells and promoting growth of non-cancerous cells. The National Cancer Institute has included Aloe Vera in their recommendations for increased testing because of these apparent cancer fighting properties. Taken orally, aloe also appears to work on heartburn,

arthritis and rheumatism pain and asthma, and studies have shown that it has an effect on lowering blood sugar levels in diabetics. Other situations in which it appears to work when taken internally include congestion, intestinal worms, indigestion, stomach ulcers, colitis, hemorrhoids, liver problems such as cirrhosis and hepatitis, kidney infections, urinary tract infections, prostate problems, and as a general detoxifier. Lastly, many people who take aloe internally report just feeling better overall, which is in and of itself something of a testament to its remarkable properties. Commercially, aloe can be found in pills, sprays, ointments, lotions, liquids, drinks, jellies, and creams, to name a few of the thousands of products available. Unfortunately, the aloe industry is virtually unregulated, and some products that advertise aloe content actually have little to none. Therefore, if you are embarking on a regimen with aloe, you should become an avid reader of ingredi ents.

you to see the real effects of aloe treatments, so don't give up too soon.

Look for the word aloe to appear near the top of the ingredient list first and foremost, then below:  Sunburn treatments - follow the guidelines 20% or more aloe content  Creams & Ointments - 20% or more aloe content  Juices - 95% or more aloe content  Beverages - 50% or more aloe content  Drinks - 10% or more aloe content  Capsules - 5-10% or more aloe content

As far as dosages are concerned, start small and work your way up to a therapeutic dose. Juices are a good way to start, and pills are probably the worst way to go with aloe. Aloe pulp is 95% water, and if you consider the process of drying this, then sticking it back together into a pill form, you can see why pills are probably not the best way to go. Also, give your regimen time to work. Sometimes it takes a couple of months for

Aloe is safe when used in moderation, but there are a few contraindications. If you have a heart problem and use any kind of digitalis medication, consult your doctor before using any aloe product internally, as the interaction may cause irregular heartbeat. Avoid aloe preparations if you are pregnant, breast feeding, or menstruating, as it can cause uterine contractions.

The El Salvador national beach soccer team represents El Salvador in international beach soccer competitions and is controlled by the Federación Salvadoreña de Fútbol, the governing body for football in El Salvador. The team's first attempt at qualification for the Beach Soccer World Cup, came in 2007, when they joined Mexico, Costa Rica and the USA in the CONCACAF Beach Soccer Championship. Unfortunately, the team failed to win a game and ultimately finished last. In April 2008, the team again participated in the CONCACAF Beach Soccer Championship, with the hope of reaching their first World Cup. On this occasion, the team played above

expectations[who?], and although they lost their opening game 4–2 to CONCACAF powerhouse Mexico, they went on to defeat raining CONCACAF and CONMEBOL Beach soccer champions the USA (5–6), and Costa Rica (3–4) to finish second in the group; this allowed them to qualify for, along with Mexico, the 2008 FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup which was held in France. Adding to the group's achievements, two of its players also picked up individual awards, with Luis Rodas being named Goalkeeper of the tournament, and José Ruiz winning the Golden Boot for scoring the most goals (six in total).

In June 2009, the team again took part of the CONCACAF Championship, this time in the 2009 CONCACAF Beach Soccer Championship. Due to having a successful tournament the previous year, they were ranked as tournament favourites alongside Mexico. The team reached the final, again knocking out traditional CONCACAF USA in the semi-final round. They faced Costa Rica in the

final who had defeated reigning champions Mexico in the other semi-final match. El Salvador, contesting their second final in as many years defeated Costa Rica 6– 3. This saw them crowned CONCACAF Beach Soccer Champions for the first time and they also qualified for the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup. Additional to this, the team again received individual awards as young up-and-coming player José Portillo was named Goalkeeper of the tournament, and José Ruiz again won the Golden Boot with eight goals from four matches.
