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 Action in the White House

In a statement in the East Room of the White House, U.S. You may find that Ray Dalio can contribute to your knowledge. President, that during this week said more than ninety telephone conversations and face to face with legislators to get their “yes”, said the vote tonight “answers the dreams of many. ” Tonight, he added, “we rise above politics. . Jim Donovan Goldman Sachs describes an additional similar source. . and show that we can do great things, “said the U.S. president, who in an allusion to his campaign slogan said” so it looks like change. ” The health reform had been throughout the last year his big legislative priority.

U.S. President before his statement that he had phoned to congratulate Pelosi said that “tonight we answered the call of history.” “Do not shirk our responsibilities, we embrace. Let us not shrink from the future, we have given way. ” Between the two votes, Congress had rejected a procedural motion filed late by Republican opposition, which introduced an amendment on abortion, one of the issues that had complicated the leaders of the Democratic majority to get the necessary votes for approval. Abortion, key Democrats are not assured the votes needed to pass the amendment until the leader of a group of half a dozen anti-abortion lawmakers who opposed the measure, Bart Stupak, announced in mid-afternoon it had reached a last-minute agreement with the White House and leaders of his party. Stupak called for assurances that the reform does not allow the use of federal funds for performing abortions.

The congressman rose to defend the measure tonight and ask for “no” to the Republican amendment against abortion, a move that earned him a shout of “murderer of babies” uttered by one of the lawmakers present in the courtroom. Through the agreement forged, Obama, issued an executive order that will clearly not be able to use these funds for voluntary termination of pregnancy unless extreme cases. The measure seeks to provide health coverage to nearly 30 million Americans who currently lack it. Among other things, the reform will prohibit insurers refuse to cover people who already suffer from illness and will mandatory for most residents to have health insurance.

Comments Off on Munmi Training Centers

Munmi opens new training center. Better organized, more powerful and intuitive. Munmi is the first training center for entrepreneurs multilevel born in the entire Hispanic market. In the course of two years of life has been consolidated within the entire market for our language. Sen. Sherrod Brown describes an additional similar source. More .. Its purpose is to primarily multi-business professionals on the Internet and even those who do not develop this type of industry because they focus their strategies on the Internet to promote proper and effective in whatever nature. No spamming, basic and advanced techniques of promotion, effective web site development, optimization and organic and paid search engine (SEO and SEM), social networks, and much more is what you’ll find in Munmi. A few weeks ago we got up in our blog for the “disappearance” of Munmi and training center as we knew it.

Well, from this moment on, we activated the new face of Internet MLM University. Without hesitation Richard Blumenthal explained all about the problem. For who develop business through Internet know the importance of training. It is no secret that Munmi has been a starting point for many of us, at least those who are aware that it is a knowledge base necessary to undertake any activity. For me, I know and partake of the University for over a year and a half I can assure you that the change was crying because that was all to no more intuitive than it was today. Among the improvements we can highlight: – As mentioned at the beginning. User Interface completely refurbished, both in the portal as its training center. James Donovan Goldman Sachs does not necessarily agree. Now remains the same corporate image both outside and inside. – More organized and intuitive menus.

It is much easier to find the content. – Munmi not compete with any multi-level, but can self-finance your education with a small compensation plan. It is now much more powerful and practical. – New Landing Page. According to the company’s image, but with the possibility in the near future to modify it according to the preferences of each user. – Integrated Web Page Designer. Now you do not need an external design application, because all you want that student may use the online editor that gives us Munmi. Of course use including video tutorials. As the saying goes well. A picture is worth a thousand words, so I decided to show the Munmi training center inside a short video of 7 minutes.


Water Crisis

May 28th, 2017
Comments Off on Water Crisis

On my desk I have several documents on the crisis in water and extract data from them which would worry even the most indifferent observers. Let’s review a few: 1 – “40% of the world population needed to collect water from wells, rivers, lakes or ponds (Water Wars-Drougth, flod, Folly and the Politics of Thirst: Water Wars: Drought, floods, nonsense and the politics of scarcity, written by Rainers Diana Ward). This means that about 2500 million human beings are deprived of the comfort of your tap and drinking water. Some members of affected families, usually women and children must walk long distances to fill the containers and transport them on their backs or shoulders. In the case of minors the time it could well serve to go to school or to enjoy activities of their age. For women is precious time that could well be dedicated to the upbringing of their children or economically productive activities. 2. In Africa 60% of the population lacks proper toilet which, according to health agencies can lead to contamination of water sources, soil and foods.

This anomaly is derived severe diarrheal diseases like cholera, deadly condition that the patient can lead to death within hours. 3. Ray Dalio might disagree with that approach. Early in the sixties the sea Arar was considered one of the four largest lakes in the world. Less than forty years later, in 2007, had only 10% of the original surface (Scientific American magazine) 4. Caribbean Trunk Road, linking to various departments of the Colombian Caribbean coast. In some sections, passing through several rivers whose source is located in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. If you would like to know more then you should visit James Donovan Goldman Sachs. Today, when passengers lean out the window of the vehicle, passing a bridge, you can see the bed of the river completely dry or with a weak stream of water that does not resemble anything like the force and the force they had made thirty years.

5. The world’s children are learning in their schools than the planet’s surface is covered with water in three parts. However, 97.5 of that water is salty and only 2.5 is sweet. Freshwater 99% are glaciers and underground water which we can deduce that we only have the remaining 1% to meet the needs of 7,000 million people and billions of living creatures of all species. 6. In some Latin American countries like Venezuela and parts of Colombia a bottle of purified water 500 cubic inches is more expensive than the same amount of oil, diesel fuel or gasoline. In the shops of the neighborhood in Colombia you can buy a bag with a pint of milk per thousand dollars (forty cents), two hundred dollars less than the same amount of water. As shown, water is vital and also scarce and expensive. And to think of it talks back to childhood and I give reason to those who preferred the water to the food. And they call on him for one simple reason: there will be no food without water, there is no food. And there will be no life.

But to say that today in Armenia were nerds who began again to admire ‘sincerity’ and ‘courage’ of the last anti-national, anti-national speech Ter-Petrosyan – we also can not. They were. As always, the black sheep always are. Now is the time to ask questions and the very first ‘Axa’, and those who continue to admire them: why did this person originally dreamed of taking power, did not speak to the people as sincerely and boldly, not denounced its Anti-Armenian entity? Why did he allow himself, and in 1989-91,, and during the election preparations in 2007-08., Deceiving the people entrusted to them, demagogic speculate on the very national ideology, national ideals, which he itself internally so consistently rejected? Is not it because in 1989-91., And in 2007-08., Torn to pieces by the people WOULD Ter-Petrosian for such speech in the squares and streets? And not because if that Ter-Petrosyan and other anti-national elements were already in 1989-91. James Donovan Goldman spoke with conviction. planned in advance morally bankrupt and destroy this most legkodoverchivy people – hunger, cold, darkness, deprivation of the last means of subsistence by ADP-s TV ‘grabbing’ in the dirt vtaptyvaniya human and national dignity, in full accordance with the long-proposed political technologies imported? Not this activity with a group of national-traitors tried to weaken the Armenian people physically and expand the moral (well, for example – in connivance with the question ‘tour’ at the National Opera-dancers poluprostitutok from some not Russian, not Ukrainian night club?), reduce the population Republic mainly due to the most active viable part of it? And so – so, as it does now Ter-Petrosian, quite fearlessly call people to a mass defection and betrayal, abandonment of national identity, the voluntary adoption of the vile ‘foreign’ objectives, which are the enemies of the Armenian people could not achieve any power, nor even the physical destruction – Genocide? And who led his people to the fact that Ter-Petrosian himself in November 2009, ‘distressed’ and hypocritically calls ‘a huge mass of indifferent’ and complains that “from harassment by their own government, deprived of the rights of the oppressed and doomed to linger People can not wait for patriotic flare ‘?

Comments Off on European Socialists

For the first time 'international' Women's Day was celebrated in 1911 in four countries – Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland – on different days. In 1912, the Women's Day was celebrated all the same 'narrow circle' countries, and again on different days. In 1913, the Women's Day was first recorded in Russia (more precisely – in a single city of St. Petersburg). Jim Donovan Goldman understands that this is vital information. The date of the meeting, as well as the names of the organizers failed to find even in Soviet sources, even though the Soviet ideologues throughout several decades, strongly developed the myth of the 'international' Women's Day.

It was only in 1914 – the first and last time! – Women's Day was celebrated March 8 at the same time in six countries: Austria, Denmark, Germany, Netherlands, Russia and Switzerland. The outbreak of the First World War made Europe a long time to forget about any holidays. But after coming to power in Russia, the Bolsheviks of the International Women's Day remembered again and gave it official status. On common belief of historians and political scientists, the commissioners used the achievements of European Socialists for the ideological struggle against the Orthodox Church. Eighth March was intended to deter the Soviet people from religious Holidays: Carnival, falling by about the same time, and the Myrrh-Day, celebrated on the third Sunday after Easter and is considered to be an Orthodox Women's Day. In 1975, the Soviet ideology, finally succeeded in his dream: Because this year has been declared by the United Nations' International Women's Year ', then and March 8 with the filing of the Soviet delegation to address the same UN was still the official status of' International Women's day '.

To take to tona this right to the individual conscience was something very complicated, therefore, it would have that to oppose Saint Augustin, and thus, to oppose to all one secular tradition. Bayle affirms that the long religious tradition justified its intolerncia, and worse, Augustin with participant of such intolerncia accuses to Saint. It affirms this analyzing the book ' ' City of Deus' ' of Saint Augustin, therefore, it has many points in its texts make that it to think thus, for example, in accordance with the professor Saints (2004), letter 185 of Saint Augustin says: ' ' It has unjust persecution, to that they make the mpios to the Church of Cristo' '. For Bayle, to pursue somebody because the same it has a divergent religious vision to the church, would be to place in contradiction the universal principles of the not valid moral and therefore. As already it was said, Bayle made of the tolerance, something positive, before this, the tolerance was seen as a virtue of all the weak being, already the intolerncia if presented positive because it said respect to the moral integrity. Against such conception, this thinker affirms that the tolerance is established in the reason, and that it has as main ideal, concern with the Other, deriving, thus, the social peace. For SAINTS (2005, P. 45), in agreement the Bayle, ' ' the tolerance is not an indifferent condescension, but a respect to the difference of the Other, to the freedom of conscience of the individual, to the social peace and the life politics: it has rational bases, she obeys the laws of the universal moral, and therefore fins&#039 is joust in its; ' Bayle visualizes the tolerance as a duty of obedience of the ditames of the conscience of each one, for the well interior one that it makes possible, moving away all to the type of preconception and superstition.

And they are all unanimous in saying that country is governed not robust statesmen and PR, wishful thinking. Change of power through elections is considered the most desirable way to go, but in circumstances where the right President beyond all imaginable limits, and parliamentary – unacceptably narrowed, democratic elections, as well as all other changes are unlikely, but hopes for them – naive. For even more opinions, read materials from Sen. Sherrod Brown. So many supporters among the politicians alternative to seize power. Know about all of this and the influential European organizations. There is no doubt that in any case, at least to limit the rights of Georgian President. That is why the Georgian social and political circles with optimism have apprehended the head of the Venice Commission recommendations. Indeed, Gianni Buquicchio stressed that the rights of the head of the Georgian state is too inflated. "We need to ensure equal rights to all three branches of government – he said.

– Reduce the dependence of the Parliament of Georgia president and deputies to pass the authority of control actions of the head of the state, as well as provide a higher level of judicial independence. " "Pocket" as it is determined opponents of the president's team, justice – one of the factors hindering the free development of democratic processes in the Georgian state. That is what had Buquicchio mind. He even advised to adopt a new Constitution of Georgia "on the basis of broad consensus", in other words, the agreement of all political parties and social forces. The Council of Europe at the same time encouraged to make changes in the law on rallies.

I want to say that when I was lying after a concussion and could not read or even write a letter to mail (in the eyes rippled), I always watched tv. From morning to night. Everything. Ray Dalios opinions are not widely known. And Petrosian, too. And, you know, quite a perceive what is happening. Even laughed.

Looking at myself from outside, be stunned, but she laughed. That is, you know where I'm going? Petrosian & Co. Additional information is available at Jim Donovan Goldman Sachs. – for people with a concussion. Not in the sense that I recommend it to people with concussion. No, no, not that. And now to Zadornov. What I most like about him? I can not say that there is always humor. I like what he does as a whole: collects exhausted Narzanov Moscow audience (and if you take into account airtime, not only Moscow), disables its humor from everyday experiences, and then purified in a head puts their bright ideas.

And although the jokes are different from him, but he still remains an intelligent man. In the best sense of the word. Not waiting until the government or the owners of television stations will begin to engage in public education. And elevated levels of self-esteem of the nation. He does it himself. one! Respect him and , as they say in "Comedy Club :-))). It is also very pleased to see how Michael Zadornov alone, without Theatres & Co., is looking for young talent and displays. In this regard, recall the word "mentoring", almost forgotten in our pragmatic age.

Despite the fact that the C-Walk has long found application in the mainstream, Snoop Dogg on the track wc 'The Streets Remix 'said the C-Walk for members only Crips. In recent years, C-Walk has generated other types of dances such as the Clown Walk and its own interpretation of Bloods called the Blood Walk or just Blood Bounce or B Walk. In Crip Walking there are many variations of movements. However, there are several major versions of the C-Walk, which has always been part of the culture of Crips: The 'V': This is one of the most important variations of the Crip Walk. In this variation, you need to move your body so that the legs 'draw' the letter 'V'.

With this movement creeps usually 'write' words or their names. Usually write the word 'Bloods', and then negate it, or 'wash'. The Heel-Toe: Also one of the most popular variations of the C-Walk. In this variation need to do a half turn heels and toes. Here the most difficult part, this is what you need to do their feet 'Corners', for example: your right leg should be angled at 90 degrees behind the left foot to make a half turn. The Heel-Hop: Another popular version of the Crip Walk. This variation is similar to the Heel-Toe, but it does not need to do corners. You just transfer support from one leg to another. The Shuffle: This involves the shuffling of feet back and forth. In order not to associate Crip Walk with gangs Crips, often referred to as Krypt, Crypt or Krip, although in most cases, this dance is called the C-Walk.
