Just last weekend, around 12,000 people got together and climbed el Volcan de Agua. This activity, besides being very fun, was for a noble cause. Since anyone can remember,Domestic violence has been a large problem throughout the world. This activity, called "Subida por la Vida" was an attempt to stop Domestic Violence. Unfortunately,many people think this act won't work. Some ask: "Do you really think that Domestic violence will stop just because a bunch of people climbed an inactive volcano?" What's your opinion? Do you think this activity could at least have some effect?

I've only got a moment because Ramona is sleeping soundly next to me, and who knows when she could wake up . . . but I couldn't not share this with you guys. Here is a brief video on a sculpture at the Los Angeles Country Museum of art. It's by an artist named Chris Burden and it's super cool. Take a look and read this article.
I miss you all! See you in a month or so!

The U.S. military do are not giving information on how much progress they have made on finding the missiles. The biggest and most feared occasion is that Al-Quada may be in possession of many of these missiles and it is believed to be possible that they can successfully smuggle them out of Libya posting a huge threat to the U.S." Matching up a terrorist with a shoulder-fired missile, that's our worst nightmare," said Sen. Barbara Boxer, D.-California, a member of the Senate's Commerce, Energy and Transportation Committee.
The U.S. have known about this for about six months and Libya now have protection on their planes. It is something that is attached to the bottom of the plane. It is said to be able to detect an incoming missile almost instantly and shoot a laser that hit the missile and leading it away from the plane. They are mainly giving this to the planes that travel oversees and that there are over 500 planes. This was estimated to cost about six billion dollars to equip and maintain the systems.
The U.S. are sending more people to Libya so they may continue the hunt for the missiles. "We're making great progress and we expect in the coming days and weeks we will have a much greater picture of how many are missing," Shapiro said.

I thought this video was really interesting because it showed all the different laughs that different people have. While I was watching it, I actually thought that some of those laughs were…well pretty interesting… They actually make you laugh, which shows that laughter is contagious. Now tell me did you laugh? What do you think of all this different kinds of laughter? Do you actually think that laughter is contagious?

I think tigers are a fascinating specie. They are really pretty and wild. I did not know about tigers that much so I decided to investigate. This are some of the most interesting facts that i found about tigers.
1. A tiger's stripes are like fingerprints - no two are alike. In fact the stripes' pattern is often used to identify individual tigers in the wild.
2. Tigers are highly ferocious and unlike the laid back male lion, it's never wise to turn your back to a tiger even in captivity. Even seasoned zoo keepers report tigers assume a stalking position and prepare to strike when they turn their back to them in the cage.
3. A tigers canines ( Sharp Teeth) can reach up to four inches long.
4. They can be eleven feet in length and they can weight up to 660 pounds.5. The name ´Tiger´ is taken from the Greek word Tigris, a derivative of the Persian word for arrow, referring to the animals great speed.

Have you ever been accused of something that you didn’t do but can’t help it because the person accusing you is your mom or dad and you can’t tell her she’s wrong. This always happens to me and I hate it because you can’t do anything about. Its either you did it or you did it. Maybe sometimes you get a, “if you didn’t do it then who did?” And if you can’t answer for any apparent reason guess what? It’s your fault and one way or another its still you. Well I’m here to tell you that when this happens that you’re pretty much screwed and you just have to deal with it. I know its better said than done and yet again I have been threw it. Luckily this hasn’t happened to me in a while. I’m going to tell you a time when this happened to me. We go to the U.S. every summer. To Houston Texas to be exact. Three years ago in my house my bother broke a vase. A very expensive one that my mom bought in China I think. I was watching tv sitting on the couch when Ignacio asked if he could play. I said yes but after I finish with this game. So to pass the time he went outside to grab my soccer ball. He brought it inside and started bouncing it. I told him to stop because we are not allowed to bounce in the house. All he said was, “Okay.” He dropped the ball and kicked it, but unintentionally kicked it hard. Doing that he broke the vase. When my mom got home she thought I was playing soccer in the house with nacho and got in trouble. Well at least I wasn’t the only one to get in trouble.
HAS THIS EVER HAPPENED TO ANYBODY??
