The City of the Mountains

onterrey, Mexico’s third largest city and the so-called “Sultan of the North” is, in fact, a truly surprising city. A powerhouse of business and industry, this city is one of the most important production and trade centers in the country. But there is much more to Monterrey than just business and industry. A modern, well-planned city that is easy to navigate and full of cultural offerings, Monterrey is populated by friendly and helpful people, who are eager to present their city as the most advanced city in Mexico. Monterrey's population of over one million (three million in the urban area) is the most educated in México and the city on a per capita basis has more colleges, universities and institutes of technology, than any other Mexican city. Another example of this city's progressive stature is the fact that over twenty percent of México's computers are said to be located in Monterrey. There are a number of nearby attractions for tourists, especially those interested in a vacation complimented by all of the amenities that are associated with the convenience that a large city offers. Quality restaurants, modern shopping malls, numerous museums and cultural attractions abound here. The mountains, canyons and desert that surround the city offer pleasant diversion and a wide variety of tourist activities, many of which are not readily available anywhere else in Mexico. Some of the México's best

hiking, mountain biking, cave exploring and nature areas are located within fairly close proximity to the city. A visit to Monterrey is sure to surprise even the most accomplished traveler. Tourists often overlook this charming city, opting for the beach resorts and the promotional popularity of other Mexican cities. As word of Monterrey spreads, this should change. Tourism has become more prevalent in recent years, as traveling businessmen spread the word about Monterrey and even return to vacation with their families.

Macro Plaza - The City's Center

Macro Plaza, or Gran Plaza, is definitely the centerpiece attraction in Monterrey. The Faro de Comercio, or Tower of Commerce, dominates the landscape of the Macro Plaza, and is the highest monument in México. Most nights a beam of red laser light circles the city from atop the tower, making for some interesting effects when it scans the nearby mountains. The tower is a great starting point for a leisurely stroll through the heart of Monterrey. The plaza is long (6 blocks) and narrow (1block) and is almost as big in total area as the Zocalo in México City. The plaza is really a series of smaller plazas joined together to form a pedestrian plaza with fountains, parks, benches, shade trees, the city theatre and bandstands. In close proximity to the plaza are, numerous museums, the city's beautiful cathedral, Paseo Santa Lucia

04

and Barrio Antiguo. You could easily spend a couple of full days enjoying the contents of the city's museums. Paseo Santa Lucia, adjacent to the Museum of Mexican History, is a pleasant diversion from the bustling city, with a walkway along a canal; sidewalk cafes and you may be lucky enough catch some entertainment, be it planned or impromptu. The Paseo is an especially pleasant spot to visit in the evenings when the quiet atmosphere and unique lighting make for a very pleasant experience. The state tourism office is located nearby at 5 de Mayo 525 Ote., in the Elizando Páez Building, they have a good variety of maps and brochures, describing the city's many attractions. All booklets and maps are dispensed free of charge by a friendly bilingual staff. A unique way to see the Macro Plaza, Barrio Antiguo and the downtown area, which is also known as Zona Rosa, is to hire a horse drawn carriage. These unique carriages and can be hired in several locations downtown, ask about these tours at your hotel. Trolley tours are also an easy way to get acquainted with the heart of Monterrey. The replicas of old fashion trolleys operate every half hour or so and you can catch the trolley in front of the Howard Johnson Hotel or in front of the MARCO museum. Allow at least a few hours for exploring Macro Plaza, Barrio Antiguo and the city center. Source: www.allaboutmonterrey.com

Es Estamos en el noveno mes del año, este es el mes cuando después de un largo verano, los niños regresan a clases y las cosas en casa toman otro rumbo, un poco más de tranquilidad en las mañanas y más actividades en las tardes: las tareas, proyectos escolares, el fútbol soccer, el béisbol, etc… Los niños ocupadísimos adaptándose otra vez a las levantadas temprano y a sus nuevos maestros y escuelas.

WHY AM I SO TIRED? Causes of Fatigue by Colette Bouchez

01 Anemia

Women in their reproductive years may develop anemia particularly if they experience heavy menstrual cycles. The bleeding leads to a deficiency in hemoglobin and when your tissues and organs don't get enough oxygen, she says, the result is fatigue.

02

Underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism)

03

If you are generally sluggish, run down, and even a little depressed, Goldberg says the problem may be a slow thyroid, also known as hypothyroidism, which basically means a slow metabolism which determines the speed at which your body operates.

Undiagnosed Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) Although most women associate a urinary tract infection with symptoms such as burning or urgency, Goldberg says in some instances fatigue may be your only clue. Some women have mild or no symptoms at all, except for fatigue.

04

Caffeine Overload

05

Many of us grab a coffee or cola for a quick burst of energy, but for some women, caffeine can have the opposite effect. The solution: Eliminate as much caffeine from your diet as possible.

Sleep Apnea

www.valleymotionmag.com

Not getting enough sleep is a valid reason to be tired, but what if you don't know that you aren’t getting sufficient sleep? This is often the case with a condition called sleep apnea -- a sleep disorder that causes you to momentarily stop breathing, often many times during the night causing constant fatigue during the day.

The Last Top 5 of 10 Makeup Mistakes By Carly Young

one

Obvious line of blush Toss out the dinky brush that came in the compact. A bigger brush will distribute the color more evenly. After you dip the brush into the blush, knock it gently on the back of your hand to get rid of excess powder smile and apply the blush in short, upward strokes on the apples of your cheeks, blending up to the hairline and ear. “It will give you a flushed, natural glow.” Finding your best blush color may require some experimentation… or a visit to a makeup counter. But as a rule of thumb, bright colors are a definite don’t. When in doubt, stick with a pinky/peach hue with a soft shimmer.

Bright blue mascara

Teal or cerulean mascara is young, punkish and more suited for rebellious teens. Indigo and navy, on the other hand, are polished and chic for 20-somethings and beyond. Dark blue mascara can brighten up the whites of your eyes, which is especially useful when Caking on foundation over bad skin you’re tired or your eyes are bloodshot. “It’s pretty on all Suffocating your skin with a heavy cover-up will only draw attention to the eye colors and flattering to everyone. If blue still seems problem you’re trying to hide. Instead, try these tricks: For fine lines: Mix in too outrageous, you can go for a more subtle look by a little moisturizer with your foundation, which will prevent the formula from applying regular black mascara and just tipping the edges seeping into the lines. For blemishes: “Mineral makeup can give great of your lashes with blue. coverage for pockmarks and acne.

To avoid a telltale foundation mask, the first step is to select the right shade. Try these tips: pick out several shades and then test a few on your cheek. Step outside into natural light and use a hand mirror to see which shade looks best on you. Our necks are often a different color than our faces and chests, so it’s important to blend foundation down into the neck for a uniform color. Use a makeup sponge to create a seamless edge.

A strong, hard line all the way around your eye can make your peepers look smaller and closer together, but lining them only halfway looks silly. The solution? A softer line can make your eyes look bigger. Start lining your top and bottom lids at the inner edge of the iris and extend the liner to the outer corner of your eye. Then, gently smudge the line toward the inner corner of your eye to create a softer look.

THE BLONDE A blonde called her boyfriend and said, "Please come over here and help me. I have a killer jigsaw puzzle, and I can't figure out how to get it started." Her boyfriend asked, "What is it supposed to be when it's finished?" The blonde said, "According to the picture on the box, it's a tiger." Her boyfriend decided to go over and help with the puzzle. She let him in and showed him where she had the puzzle spread all over the table. He studied the pieces for a moment, then looked at the box, then tur ned to her and said, "First of all, no matter what we do,we're not going to be able to assemble these pieces into anything resembling a tiger." He took her hand and said, "Second, I want you to relax. Let's have a nice cup of hot chocolate and then . .. " he sighed, "Let's put all these frosted flakes back in the box."

WHO WEAR THE PANTS? Mike was going to be married to Karen, so his father sat him down for a little chat. He said, 'Mike, let me tell you something. On my wedding night in our honeymoon suite I took off my pants, handed them to your mother, and said, 'Here - try these on.' She did and said, 'These are too big, I can't wear them.' I replied, 'Exactly, I wear the pants in this family and I always will.' 'Ever since that night we never had any problems.' 'Hmmm,' said Mike. He thought that might be a good thing to try. So, on his honeymoon, Mike took off his pants and said to Karen, 'Here – try these on.' She tried them on and said, 'These are too large. They don't fit me.' Mike said, 'Exactly. I wear the pants in this family and I always will. I don't want you to ever forget that.' Then Karen took off her pants and handed them to Mike. She said, 'Here-you try on mine.' He did and said, 'I can't get into your pants.' Karen said, 'Exactly. And if you don't change your smart ass attitude, you never will.

Tips For Consumers Refinancing Their Home Look For Free Lock-Ins That Last For 60 Days Or More Source: http://www.consumersunion.org

w

hile it typically takes about 45 days from the time of application to get to closing, delays of two months or more can occur. Look for a lock-in that lasts for 60 days or more. There should be some lenders in your area willing to offer a 60 day "lock-in" for free. Be careful, however. The loan officer may say the lock-in is free even when a fee or a higher rate is charged for the lock-in protection.

Know Your Rescission Right If your deal turns sour at closing, consider starting over. You have three business days from the date of closing to mull it over. If you decide to reject the deal, you must notify the lender in writing within the three-day period. The lender then has 20 days to return your fees.

www.valleymotionmag.com

Don't Assume You Won't Qualify Because You Have Little Equity In Your Home -- But Check Your Costs Carefully Many lenders require that you have at least 10 percent equity in your home (i.e., a loan-to-value (LTV) ratio of 90 percent or less). But we found at least one lender in every market that was willing to underwrite loans in which the borrower had only 5 percent equity in the home. Beware, however, that low equity loans can involve relatively high mortgage insurance costs.

You may only qualify if your current loan is owned by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. You can find out if your loan is owned by these organizations by calling the company to whom you send your monthly payments. That company may not own the loan, but it can find out whether the secondary market agencies do by searching a computerized database.

Make "Apples To Apples" Interest Rate Comparisons Make sure you compare interest rates using a constant number of points. An 8 percent rate tied to 2 points is a lot more expensive than an 8 percent rate tied to 0 points. When faced with the need to compare different rate/point combinations among lenders, consumers should first convert each quoted rate to one based on a constant number of points and then find the lender with the lowest rate. In making this conversion, consumers should use a traditional rule of thumb that equates each point to a 1/4 of 1 percent change in the interest rate. This would make an 8 percent loan with 0 points equivalent to a 7.75 percent loan with 1 point.

Don't Judge A Lender By Its Application Costs Lenders who lure you with no costs at application can lay the fees on heavily at closing. Keep your eyes focused primarily on the interest rate and points.

Santa Sabina: Rock, Arte y Sensualidad By Alejandro Cabada

www.valleymotionmag.com

Books

La sensualidad y el talento de Rita Guerrero en la voz y letras de esta simbólica banda son parte del misticismo que se vive en cada una de sus presentaciones. Los que hemos podido estar presentes en alguno de sus conciertos, les podemos platicar que la magia, la espiritualidad y la presencia volcánica de Rita en el escenario son sensaciones y emociones imborrables. Es una experiencia completamente fuera del cosmos. Estar en un concierto de Santa Sabina es algo diferente, es un ritual, un enlace con el alma que se filtra por las arterias hasta llegar al núcleo del corazón y quedar por siempre marcado.

M I C H A E L M O O R E ' s first book in five years-a hilarious and informative guide to the 2008 election! Perfectly timed to coincide with the national political conventions. Michael Moore's previous bestseller, Dude, Where's My Country?, sold over one million combined copies and spent 24 weeks at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list.

A lo largo de 15 años de trayectoria artística, la Santa ha dado a luz 8 discos extraordinarios, haciendo un sorpresivo debut en el año 1992 con su primer álbum intitulado simplemente Santa Sabina, que fue producido por Alejandro Marcovich, guitarrista de la desaparecida banda Caifanes. Un elemento clave que define a Santa Sabina es que jamás, en toda su existencia, ha seguido las reglas o las propuestas comunes de las disqueras en México. La Santa siempre ha sido fiel a su estilo, combinando diferentes estilos como rock, jazz, ópera, la música del medio oriente, los sonidos acústicos y la experimentación. En cada performance, hay un amalgama de elementos artísticos como el cine Italiano de terror, el expresionismo del cine Alemán o el dramatismo y la potencia de la ópera. La música de Santa Sabina es profunda, es intensa y sus letras poéticas envuelven a la audiencia en las espirales del subconsciente… Desde la sensual voz de Rita, el bajo trepidante de Alfonso o las guitarras exóticas de Alejandro… todo, absolutamente todo es un viaje místico… “un viaje fantástico y real, un viaje por los caminos de la fantasía y la ilusión.” En el 2005, después de quince años de trabajo, Santa Sabina tomó un año sabático el cual se convirtió en 4 años, hasta que finalmente, después de una dolorosa y asfixiante espera, La Santa de todas las Santas regresa al estudio a grabar nuevo material. Lo último que me resta por decir sobre Santa Sabina es solamente darle las gracias por existir e impregnarnos de su música y de su arte.

Obvious line of blush

Discografía

Cada década nos trae nuevas corrientes o cambios… ya sea en la música, la moda, el estilo de vida o la cultura y pocas son las veces que algo perdura al entrar un nuevo período. Santa Sabina es una banda que se ha mantenido firme y siempre se ha caracterizado por que nunca es lo mismo, siempre se esta re-inventando, re-descubriendo sus entrañas musicales y ofreciéndonos su alma en cada uno de sus emblemáticos discos.

Santa Sabina es: Rita Guerrero, voz Alfonso Figueroa, bajo y coros Alejandro Otaola, guitarras Julio Díaz, batería y percusiones Aldo Max, saxofón y clarinete Leonel Pérez, violonchelo

The man revered by liberals and feared by conservatives answers the tough questions everyone who cares about the American democratic process is asking, including:

Can I get into the Electoral College if I only have a 2.0 grade point average? Will Republicans marrying each other be outlawed once Democrats are in power? The 10 most frequently asked questions about voting (#6: Why do Iowa and New Hampshire go first? I don't know anyone from there.) Why are the Democrats scared of their own shadow? The 12 things Michael Moore would do if elected president (#12: Free HBO for everyone!) And most importantly...Who Would Jesus Vote For?

When Chelsea Handler needs to get a few things off her chest, she appeals to a higher power -- vodka. You would too if you found out that your boyfriend was having an affair with a Peekapoo or if you had to pretend to be honeymooning with your father in order to upgrade to first class. Welcome to Chelsea's world -- a place where absurdity reigns supreme and a quick wit is the best line of defense. In this hilarious, deliciously skewed collection, Chelsea mines her past for stories about her family, relationships, and career that are at once singular and ridiculous. Whether she's convincing her third-grade class that she has been tapped to play Goldie Hawn's daughter in the sequel to Private Benjamin, deciding to be more egalitarian by dating a redhead, or looking out for a foulmouthed, rum-swilling little person who looks just like her...only smaller, Chelsea has a knack for getting herself into the most outrageous situations. Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea showcases the candor and irresistible turns of phrase that have made her one of the freshest voices in comedy today.

A chemical reaction happens when two or more molecules interact and energy is released. Minuscule atoms clash into each other emitting enough energy that even though we are trillion of miles away, stars shine enough that we are able to see them from Earth! That's it. Two interacting molecules produce energy, power, and strength. We, the youth, are an interacting molecule. With us, the possibilities of our effect are infinite. Who decides on new clothing trends? Who invented the cool phrases of today? Who decides which music will hit the billboards? We become passionate for something and we embrace it. Sometimes we clinch to things that lead us away from our divine purpose. Take advantage of your power; you have the potential to start a chain of reactions!

Style

TIP

Broad-shouldered women with proportionally narrow hips and less defined waistlines.

Bias cut silhouettes wear beautifully on you and enhance your demure hip curves. On bottom feel free to indulge fun accents like pockets and buttons.

Broad Shoulders, Often Athletic Upper Arms. Long Slender Neck and Gorgeous Collarbones. Narrow Hips.

Fabrics & Color Smooth, tightly-woven, small-print fabrics on top to minimize shoulders. Have fun experimenting with bold prints, plaids and wools in skirts and slacks. Lighter bottoms and bright colors add fullness to balance broad shoulders.

Pants Boot-cut slacks nicely balance the shoulders. Ideally, they sit on or slightly above the hipbone to enhance the waistline and the flare in the leg starts below the knee. This really lengthens the leg. Pocket details and pleats at the hips are always a good idea. Pleats on cuffed and full-leg trousers flatter slender hips and long legs.

www.valleymotionmag.com

Fly-front, bootleg pants with side-seam detailing are very flattering.

Trims & Details Pockets on jackets and slacks around the hip area add width to balance out your shoulders.

Cuffed and fluted sleeves also add nice fullness to the hips.

Jackets & Tops

Patch hip pockets with flaps and buttons on an A-line skirt add nice "weight" to the lower body.

Skirts & Dresses

Keep detailing, particularly on jackets, to a minimum—styles that soften the shoulders and subtly flare at the hem add balance.

Interesting and beautiful skirts balancing your shoulders with a bit of swing are fun and flattering.

Skirts & Dresses

Try gathered, sewn or un-sewn pleated skirts.

Horoscopes Aries

March 21/April 19

Your prowess at the office will be matched only by your prowess at operating the office espresso machine. You've got a foot on every rung of the ladder this month; big-picture ideas about where your workplace should be headed, as well as grace and panache whilst handling the practical, hands-on things that some people may think are beneath them. Make sure you're getting recognition all the great work you're doing.

Taurus

April 20/May 20

Oh no! It looks like you're going to be one half of a power struggle. It happens to everyone, so just remember what you’re fighting for and follow some ground rules. Don't be pompous, arrogant, or self-righteous. Do be tolerant, and forge alliances or arbitrate whenever possible. Most importantly, hang onto those important attachments that have gotten you to where you are today. Stand your ground, but remember that getting what you want won't mean much if you burn all of your bridges along the way.

Libra

September 23/October 22

It's way past high time for you to loosen up. Start having a little bit of fun at work! Work can be play, you know, and fun and productivity aren't mutually exclusive concepts. Why not conduct your brainstorming session over a picnic down by the river? It's your job to make your job a pleasure and not and obligation. Find ways to bring the things you love to do outside the office into your cubicle. Things will be going so well that you won't even have to remind yourself to have fun at work.

Scorpio

May 21-June 21

You like people. People like you. Does your work involve people? Are there people involved in your work? If you feel like you're flying solo too often, it might be time to consider a change. After all, not everybody is as charming and persuasive as you are, so why not take advantage of your natural gifts? Even open-minded people have their moments, so if this is one of yours, do your best to clamp down on super-bossy impulses and hear people out.

To relax your mind and relief stress 5 6

You might find yourself smack dab in the middle of a great big career crisis! Take a deep breath. Take another deep breath. And another. Now exhale, and take a look at the situation one more time. It's not actually a crisis, is it? It's just a problem that, like any other, is solvable. And who better to solve it than you? Keep your cool, and consider all the angles before working your way through the puzzle. Once you solve it, you'll have boosted your confidence in your ability to navigate any obstacle that might pop up along your career path.

November 22/December 21

You can hardly believe your good luck! Sure you're traveling a lot for work, but you're getting frequent flyer miles, and assignments in all kinds of exotic destinations, and really great luggage at a really great discount. This is a pretty terrific time in your career, so pack those bags and make sure to take advantage of all the good times to be had on the company dime. Your boss could throw a temper tantrum, but don't let it ruin your fun. They're probably just jealous that you're doing all the fun stuff while they're stuck at the office, so be forgiving.

June 22-July 22

You may be feeling quite tempted to redecorate the entire office. Then you may want to overhaul your entire work wardrobe. Next you'll probably want to get a new haircut at the most expensive salon in town, and after that you might just feel the need to do some online shopping for a new laptop (with leather bag!). Call on your clearheaded, down-to-earth side to do an immediate reality check on these impulses. If you can really afford this dramatic overhaul, and such an overhaul is needed in order to improve business, then your clearheaded, down-to-earth side will surely give your plans the go-ahead.

July 23-August 22

Things are looking pretty good for you. Okay, make that great. You've just achieved something you've been working towards for a long time, and it may just mark a real turning point in your career. What could be better? How about the fact that you've been maintaining an excellent fitness routine throughout this high-achievement phase and look and feel great? Now you know that it's possible to be successful and healthy at the same time, so enjoy it, and keep it up! You and a colleague will be getting along great, and it looks like you'll be coming up with the next great idea for your business!

Aquarius

January 20/February 18

What is the single biggest issue in your career? Are you worried that you're not working enough? Are you worried that you're working too much? Are you concerned about where your career is going? Do you worry sometimes that it's not going anywhere at all? Or maybe everything is going too far, too fast! Stop letting the big questions paralyze you. Instead, try doing things in some new ways. They may or may not help, but even the things that don't actually do, because they teach you what not to do. You’ll be feeling intellectually connected in a way that you haven't been for quite some time.

Pisces

August 23-September 22

A minor setback could make you fret over whether of not you'll ever get your project off the ground. Don't despair! Minor setbacks are just part of the process, especially when it comes to starting a new venture. Chin up! You'll have things up and running in no time flat if you tackle those setbacks one at a time. You could be feeling restless. A long walk will do wonders towards sorting your thoughts out! All the hard work you've been doing will really pay off. You'll be raking in the dough!

Remember that your physical health is as important to your career as your financial health. After all, if you ignore your physical well-being, you're not going to perform at your best and that will negatively impact your earning ability. Take advantage of the beautiful summertime weather to recommit yourself to taking good care of your health. Try to workout on a regular basis, even if it means skipping out of work a bit early sometimes, or a taking a longer lunch. It's going to pay off in the long run and in the short run too -- your clarity of mind and energy levels will improve almost immediately once you get started. Staying healthy will mean addressing a few problems in a professional relationship.

You may run into a small obstacle at work. Maybe your internet connection is painfully slow. Maybe you can't access the files you need. Or perhaps you just can't find your stylus. Whatever that is, put as much effort as you must into resolving the issue. After all, small obstacles can create big headaches if you don't take care of them in a hurry. You'll be ready to call it a day and head to the museum by noon. So what's stopping you? Finish up all your need-to-do work, then head out early and spend a lovely late afternoon in the sculpture garden! Spend the day getting organized.
