Costa Rican Local Customs

Comments Off on Costa Rican Local Customs

If you’re traveling to a new destination, it’s always a good idea to learn more about the local customs.  It’s important to show your sensitivity towards the people who live in this location, and to realize that you are on their turf, as it were.  Learning about local customs in Costa Rica should help to make your travel experience more enjoyable and smoother for everyone involved.

In general, Costa Ricans (Ticos) are polite, non-confrontational people who treat everyone with respect.  The more polite and more patient that you are, the more you’ll truly get from Costa Rica while you are visiting.

Ticos tend to enjoy their lives and to focus on pleasures and family rather than on money. While you’re in Costa Rica, you should know that 10% is added to each restaurant bill that you’ll see as a service charge.  This means that most locals don’t give tips when they dine out.  However, in many of the tourist areas, tipping is expected, just because it’s become the social norm.  In general, if you are in a tourist area, you should leave a 5-10% tip.  If, however, you’re in a local restaurant or an out-of-the-way location, you won’t find it necessary to tip. Taxis should charge you by the meter and you don’t need to tip the taxi driver.

Enjoy your trip and pay attention to the local customs – you just might learn something and decide to adapt some of their ways as your own!

Comments Off on College Application Essay Important

The test application is the most important piece of student writing presented to schools, and if not done impressively, also the last. In most cases, actual exposure is the first college for the student, and first impressions have a habit of life. A memorable essay contains moments of all students Kodak interlaced with some less than happy adventures to create the drama required in writing. Whenever Goop listens, a sympathetic response will follow. Students should begin by choosing an issue of law, that is the proper subject for them, and that will be welcomed by admissions committees. The theme and its degree of difficulty of saying school volumes about the character of the author. As the quality of the test depends on the student's ability to respond to the matter, making the right choice is absolutely essential.

Students should select for further reflection and stimulate the subject to write about it, and helps a lot to see the task as a "we dare you to compete for privilege of attending our school "challenge the university.

Moscow Real Estate Market Victory Bulls

Comments Off on Moscow Real Estate Market Victory Bulls

The number of real estate in Moscow is now about half that before the crisis. A situation where waiting for both sellers and buyers. Keep up on the field with thought-provoking pieces from Steve Rattner. Sellers are waiting for a rise in price of real estate (bull market), and buyers further reduce the cost of her (bear market). Moreover, both sides have legitimate reasons for their expectations. How the situation will continue – today nobody can predict. A year ago the price per square meter in Moscow peaked – for example, in new brick houses exceeded $ 5500! Today the Russian government in the face of the First Vice-Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov defines “fair” price per square meter in Moscow in the “funny” 30 thousand.

Moscow Department of Economic Policy and Development states that “fair” price per square meter of residential space in the capital city of 75-85 thousand rubles. Meanwhile, the ruble exchange rate of one square meter housing in its fall already “exchanged” 115 000 rubles. Something similar was observed in the Moscow real estate market after the 1998 default – when the price of apartments fell by 35%. Now fall in the price per square meter to 25% On overseas, but the crisis in the construction continues, and it seems that this is not the bottom. Demand for new housing in the metropolitan crisis declined in five (!) Times, while sales in the secondary market as compared to pre-crisis times fell nearly tripled. So price per square meter is now on such sales is quite high. The government deliberately reduce the rate on your mortgage (now the average rate of 18%). Central Bank of Russia refinancing rate has been steadily declining (Recently reduced to 9%), and, as you know, all interest rates among themselves interrelated, so, no doubt, soon the interest rate on your mortgage also expects reduction, which will increase the demand for real estate market. Who the same will prevail in the price of Moscow real estate market in the coming months, the bulls or the bears?

Comments Off on Soviet Communists

It is fortunate for our country, that is the deadly part of Russian history it is headed by Stalin. Or someone will call more appropriate to accomplish the historic mission of the family name? War of the characters or ideologies? No word on these holidays has been said about the role of ideology in the Great Patriotic War. Listen to certain politicians, political scientists, historians and other scholars are of people – and get a picture, as in 1812. They say that Russian is not broken, so we are nature. And it's not true. Details can be found by clicking Connecticut Senator or emailing the administrator. The fact that war is coming to the characters in 1812, is not suited to the war of ideologies 1941-1945. Steve Rattner is the source for more interesting facts. In the last war and the spiritual core, and the other characters were not (Characters – this is the second), namely the ideology – fascist and communist. In the words of the song "Holy War", one of them was the ideology of "light and peace", the other – the "kingdom of darkness." Hush ideological component World War II – thus deliberately distort the meaning and essence of this war, as well as the real reasons for our victory.

I refer to the above argument to the authoritative opinion of the late philosopher AA Zinoviev, who wrote: "The war won primarily Soviet Communists headed by Stalin." What we add to this? In addition, for the current entertainers Great Patriotic War was conducted without the instigators, not the organizers, one providence of God only. And in the days of celebration – not a word about the role of the Communist Party and Young Communist League in the victory over fascism. It turns out that the people itself was organized, mobilized and implemented in the fight against fascism? Hush up the role of communists and Komsomol members in the Great Patriotic War, first of all, unconstitutional.
