Fiorentina, Bayern Munich and Indonesia

I'm feeling quite happy today since three my favorite football teams got quite satisfying results. Fiorentina got a draw 0-0 in UEFA Cup against Glasgow Rangers so did Bayern Munich draw 1-1 with Zenit St. Petersburg last night. Indonesia National Team just won 1-0 against Yemen about one hour ago.

At Ibrox Stadion, Glasgow, full team Fiorentina dominated the match while Rangers played without Barry Ferguson and Kevin Thomson due to suspension. Adrian Mutu, Giampaolo Pazzini, Martin Jørgensen and Zdravko Kuzmanović threatened Rangers' goal several times but back-up goalkeeper Neil Alexander managed to keep his sheet clean.

Rangers also has some chances through Jean-Claude Darcheville, Thomas Buffel and Daniel Cousin but Fiorentina's defense, marshaled by Czech International Thomas Ujfaluši succeeded denying them.

Anything can happens at Stadio Artemio Franchi on second leg next week. Rangers will play with full team. As Fiorentina fan, I hope Fiorentina can keep the high standard of playing as they showed when defeating two big clubs, Everton and PSV Eindhoven.

At same time last night, at Allianz Arena, Munich, FC Bayern faced an obstacle from Zenit. After Franck Ribéry scored at 18th minute, a rebound from miss penalty by Ribéry himself. The tie came up after Lucio scored an own goal at 60th. With Andrei Arshavin and Lukas Podolski failing to deliver a late twist, the tie will be decided on 1 May in Russia.

I'm not disappointed by tie result at home for FC Bayern. Zenit, coached by Dick Advocaat, is a black horse in UEFA Cup this season. They made semi-finals after beating Villareal, Marseille and Bayer Leverkusen. Advocaat has made Zenit became an impressive team in Europe. However, I still favorite FC Bayern. They will beat Zenit with the same way they beat Getafe on quarter-finals.

While in Stadion Jalak Harupat, Bandung, Indonesia beat Yemen with only goal by Bambang Pamungkas at 30th minute. Indonesian coach Benny Dolo made a quite brave move by playing many young players, most of them promoted from U-23. Ardan Araz, Hariyanto, Fandi Mochtar, Paolo Rumere and Arif Sunyono was playing. Indonesia dominated the match since first minute. A nice pass from Firman Utina met Bambang at empty area. Without any pressure, Bambang fired a left foot kick and scored.

After Ponario Astaman and Firman Utina pulled out on second half, Yemen took control of the game. Indonesia could only made some counter attacks. 30 minutes dominating the match, Yemen couldn't score a goal so the match ended 1-0 for Indonesia.

By the way, Indonesia will host Bayern Munich on May 21. FC Bayern will make 10 days Asian tour to popularize its club in Asia. This tour is also going to be a farewell tour for Oliver Kahn who will retire this season. I must see this match. I don't care about the friendly match title and Bayern's European Internationals can't come due to Euro Cup preparation. I'm just hoping it will be held in Jakarta not any other city.

College Loans Consolidation

Moreover, it is even more difficult and takes more offers to work and study at the same time and there are a number of carriers that, through a very time-consuming, will not even allow.

College loans consolidation is the preferred choice in the way of dealing with student loan burdens. Not only lets you easily to the monthly payment, longer payment periods, and a lower monthly payment. Few families and secondary school students can pay for a traditional college. Without any financial aid or in the finesse of the loans or scholarships.

Application for college loans or scholarships for the federal or private student loans is not as difficult as it seems. Although the process varies from one loan to others, from one student to others and from one lender to others, there are a number of variables that are common to all situations.

Varying loan aid to unheard of demands if you are going to adopt college loan consolidation is certainly looking for the lowest interest rate, so that will not hurt you in the long term. Students who are interested in obtaining loan consolidation money would be wise to start looking for scholarships for which they may be eligible during their last year of high school or earlier. It is always a good idea to simulate your high school counselor to check in the local fairs.

Different college loans are created for different needs, you must first decide whether you want your payments deferred until graduation or not, how much money you need, how long you want your loan to last, how much money you can afford on a monthly basis , on other things you think related to it.

The students generally a requirement applies only to membership of an ethnic or racial minority that has historically disadvantaged in the country. Loans/scholarships are provided by colleges and universities for their future students, as well as by private organizations, churches, companies, and public services. Many students interested in obtaining help in the future college costs, apply for the various loan consolidations. May be you'll get lucky for once.

However, if you are refused, or if the loan was granted for an amount less than what you need, you may ask for additional money from a private lender. A private lender will surely you a higher interest rate, but unlike the government, the amount you can request will not be limited by factors other than your ability to pay dividends. Off course you have to think clearly to set you limit of rate.

You can easily find private student lenders by searching the network for student loans consolidation. There are many online sites offering this type of service.

Two Young Guns in Champions League

European Champions league is entering the semifinal. Barcelona stands alone against three English's big three. As always, it's always fascinating waiting for 4 fights in this stage. Those 4 clubs questionably are the best among European greats. But what I'm interested most is the young players in the league. Since Kaka from AC Milan left and young lads from Arsenal, there are only to prominent young players now; Bojan Krkic of Barcelona and Cristiano Ronaldo of Manchester United.

Calm so that Bojan stole Barcelona winning goal against Schalke in Gelsenkirchen on away quarter final leg, the amazing speed, vision and considerable courage with which Manchester Ronaldo headed the first goal in a 2-0 victory at the Olympic Stadium Rome, more than match the winners.

Bojan Krkic, who, at 17, is already doing things in Barcelona that his father's name to people who have reached with Red Star Belgrade, allowed supporters of European football to reflect on the applause.

Although a lot of people wondered whether Bojan knew, or affected by, the pressure on some of his illustrious team Barça; as Ronaldinho is far from the player, the most admired in the world, was two years ago. Samuel Eto'o is not as strong as a predator before injuries was plagued him this season and last. Carles Puyol, as Bojan born in Catalonia, is a captain in an overloaded Barcelona vulnerable defence. Bojan proved he is not intimidated.

Cristiano Ronaldo, once the boy from Madeira and now the great United's man to force another to strike at its collection target which makes it very close to the most complete attacking player in their game.

Twenty-three, however, is a very good age for Cristiano Ronaldo. This season has come in off his wing to play in a variety of roles to attack United. He has obtained impressive quality objectives kick hit, swerved with a magical of touch. He rushed pace that defenders can not match, to deceive them on the ground, to rise above them in the air.

Manchester is on track to meet Barcelona in the semifinals. Let's see them two fight face to face.

The Meaning of Best Friend

When someone's there for you when you need someone at most, the one who supports you, who respect you, who will listen to too, even if you do not have a lot in common with that person. That one might be your best friend.

A best friend to me is like family, even more. Someone you can trust more than any other people. A person you can feel comfortable around and act silly with you and not feel embarrassed. Someone that will be with you through ups and downs in life. A best friend, a person who will do what he can to see you happy.

You may have already seen a person who is less sophisticated can often get along well with many people from different backgrounds, and the reason for this phenomenon is that the person who has nothing hidden in his mind and he look at things sincerely. If you come across a person who has this type, I recommend that you be friends with him/her, as you will never find a better friend to yourself.

Hope is a Good Thing

I do believe hope is a good thing. Like love, it is never one to die. Each one of us lives by at least one of hope. Some hope to make better life, some hope to travel to some beautiful places, however, most of us hope that things will improve to better conditions. When there is nothing else, there is always hope. But the more I resolved that the inner voice, the implicit power, and solid support, and hope to be a great tool, it's probably the most overlooked holder.

Most of people say they care about their expectations. There is hope. Pray is just another way to express that. But few making it transforms to the reality. Hope needs people to take and follow a series of missions and action strategies to get solutions.

Hope has a bad name off course. But it's not because of the characteristics of hope itself. It's because of some lazy people who only wants to get results out of the blue. Hope without action will only end up become wishing.

Laughing Club

In 1995 in Bombay, Dr. Madan Kataria, a Bombay physician, has decided to find out whether laughter is the best medicine. He convened a group of patients and neighbors to meet daily to laugh.

After a time, Dr. Kataria found that the participants lived better health and lower levels of stress. Although the scientific evidence is mixed and confused, Dr. Kataria clearly believes in the therapeutic effects of laughter.

Thus was born in India the phenomenon of laughter clubs. Since then, clubs have spread in Europe and the United States. Less than ten years later, there are now more than 1500 laughter clubs around the world, with over 450 in Bombay alone.

Dalai Lama's American Connection

For two decades, a group of Buddhists American, including scholar Robert Thurman, Richard Gere and composer Philip Glass, have been voiced against China oppression of Tibet, and called on the communist government to open talks with the Tibet leader, Dalai Lama.

An attempt for Tibet House, which was founded in 1987 at the request of the Dalai Lama, from a group including Gere, Glass and Thurman, who is known as the father of actress Uma Thurman. The Manhattan center is a kind of cultural embassy intent on preserving Tibetan Buddhist religion, art and philosophy.

The International Campaign for Tibet, chaired by Gere, since 1995, promotes awareness of Chinese oppression of Tibet around the world. As can be seen from the best-known lawyer, Gere spoke about the suppression of Tibetan culture before Congress in the United States, the European Parliament and the United Nations on human rights.

These projects have helped to popularize the Dalai Lama and Tibetan culture but they have no influence on China, which is embroiled in another massive depression just months before the Olympics Beijing 2008. As the situation in Tibet has grown more dire, celebrities like actors Keanu Reeves, Goldie Hawn, and rock star Adam Yauch continue to flock to Dharamsala, India, home of the Tibetan government in-exile, for the salvation of the circuit.

Richard Gere, who has poured millions of his own money to human rights causes, also established the Gere Foundation, a nonprofit group that aids Tibetan refugees and promotes an autonomous Tibet.

Weather these celebrities are able to conduct a totalitarian government remains to be seen. Or will it be another group of celebrities means mean nothing like one protested Iraq war?

Global Warming: Real or Hoax?

I want to believe it's a hoax but the fact that all the pollution we waste production people, it will necessarily be some consequences.

Over 4 billion years, the environment has been used for disposal to leave only biological waste; dinosaurs did not ride around in cars. But then, suddenly, in the 150 years, the environment had to take care of waste artificial, artificial substances not found in nature - plastic, nuclear waste and so on, things he was not used to delete leave. This HAS to have implications, some environmental fatigue, which will manifest itself in one form or another.

Yes, the Earth has gone through many periods of warming and cooling/freezing, which completely changed our world from time to time. Climate studies found that each time the Earth warmed CO2 were present in the atmosphere in large quantities. This period of warming over the past 150 years or so is not that scientists can actually see and assess the excessive build-up of CO2 and other greenhouse gases, as it produced by mankind.

It is widely recognized and endorsed by an overwhelming majority of the world's most respected scholars and all that if it does not stop, or at least, used to a great extent, our world would be disastrous changed in less than 100 years. We can not sit idly by and let this continue to happen.

In other words, doing nothing, and we are working with our permits, and just a beautiful planet will be destroyed by greedy fossil fuels, individuals, organizations and government leaders who have put their money ahead of the welfare of the rest.

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today...

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

I love this song because they relate to him completely. I have a vision of the world is very similar to John and although some people say I am crazy to believe that ( "I am a dreamer ..."), but on the basis of the popularity of this song definitely I am not the only one. Rather than simply agree with the message of the song, however, people have to begin to implement the message of this song.

Things like religion, country, and money were the reasons for war and fighting, and if there was none of this then there was no war. And religion believe that John is saying that organized religion is the problem and not just believe in God, because I do not see how that would adversely affect world peace. I think he is talking about how they have so much fighting in places because of religion, but the religions are very similar, like all religions are.

Panasonic HPX-500 P2 Camcorder

The HPX500 has once again been designed to allow a smooth upgrade path for those who wish to obtain low-cost production HD.

Because there are no mechanical devices to record the weight is incredibly low. Overall, the construction of the body seems to be very good. The viewfinder adjustment was smooth and strong, and the buttons and switches are just where you would expect on a device of this type. Interestingly user-assignable buttons are hidden behind the sliding door. An interesting touch, although I am not sure what the benefits as all other checks of the bar shutter switch are exposed. These can of course be left in the open position if you need to go to those sites regularly.

General audio controls and switches are behind the large LCD on the back of the camera. Panasonic has wisely made sure that the levels of control for the main stereos are above the screen and can be accessed when the LCD screen is flush against the body of the camera. They also placed the time code selection (F-run, Set, R-Run) below the LCD screen so that they are accessible when the screen is folded away.

Below the LCD is a flap that opens to reveal the thumbnail reading and navigation buttons. Playing a clip is launched by pressing the "mode". This takes the camera from its default "Cam" mode "MCR." From there, you can browse the clip thumbnails, delete clips, add metadata, and performing other clip the overall organization and maintenance. My personal preference would be to be able to make reading a clip instantly, hence the need to go into a different mode does make the process more difficult, a certain degree. I could not find an easy way to remove the last clip recorded without going into miniature mode. This is a function that I use a lot on other tapeless cameras and I think that 'he would be welcome in a future firmware update.

One thing that can not be said about the HPX500 is that lack of recording formats! The camera can record 1080i/p/50/60/25/30/24fps 720p/25/30/60/24fps and the recording standard definition interlaced and progressive scan imaging based in both NTSC and PAL modes . The 500 can also record for variable framerates undercranking and overcraking capacity. These framerates are infinitely adjustable, but were set at the most commonly used parameters based on the experience of operators Varicam. Interval registration timelapse sequence is also available.

There is also a type of selection that allows the user to choose between film and video Cam Cam modes. Film Cam mode's main difference is that it displays the shutter as an angle rather than in fractions of a second. It helps when setting up the shutter to match the variable parameters framerate crisp motion.
