On this second song I imagine cow boys in the old west in a bar driking beer all drunk dancing crazy.
On this third song I imagine indians in their villages worshiping their goods at night, with a fire having a sacrifise for them. They are singing and dancing a ritual surrounding the fire and the sacrifieced person. All of them showing respect for their gods and thanking them for ledding them have a very good year. When they finish to worship its 12:00 and I imagine all the indians fasting a great dinner celebrating the start of the new year.

Pablo Emilio Escobar Gaviria
"Pablo Emilio Escobar Gaviria (December 1, 1949 – December 2, 1993) gained world infamy as a Colombian drug
dealer. Escobar became so wealthy in the drug trade that in 1989 Forbes magazine had
listed him as the seventh richest man in the world. He is widely considered to
be one of the most brutally ruthless, ambitious and powerful drug dealers in
Eventually Escobar became very rich and was the seventh-richest man in the world. He made a prison called The Catedral Prison which was located at Medellin. He was hated by many people by the Unite States and Colombia but at the same time he was loved by many poor people in Medellin because he helped them economically. The poor people helped Escobar by hiding him and by keeping information away from the authorities. After all Colombia was going to extradite Pablo. But to avoid extradition he made an agreement with the Colombian government where stated that he would not have extradition to the United States, if he stopped any further drug trafficking activities, but he would be jailed at The Catedral Prison. In that prison he passed a very good time, it wasn’t really a jail. They formed big rumors that it wasn’t a jail so Escobar was going to be changed of prison. Escobar knowing that he decided to escape.
Later the Unite States of America and the Colombian Government made a group called ”Los Pepes" which is a group to locate Escobar and bring him to justice. Later a war between Pablo Escobar and Los Pepes formed. The war eneded on December,2, 1993 when Pablo Escobar was at the roofs of a Middle class village in Medellin. The colombian goverment localized him using radio tranguilation, and then start shooting him. Eventually Pablo Emilio Escobar Gaviria died that day.

All of the hijackers were sat on first class and were very nervous and because of that the terrorist acted in a very strange way. The flight was going to last about 5 hours and by the time that the passengers were eating the lunch the hijackers took control of the air plains with knifes. They killed a first class passenger and made a flight attended open the door of the pilots when the pilots opened the door of the cabin the hijackers appeared and killed both the pilot and the sub-pilot. 2 of the hijackers were pilots so they were the ones who drove the plane. All of the hijackers were praying all the time because the kidnapping of the airplane was because of religion. When there was 20 minutes left for the airplane to hit their target the White House. The passengers decided to retake control of the airplane because somewhat they were going to die.
Before they retake control everyone talked with the persons they loved and after that they took anything in which they could kill the hijackers and went to battle them they started killing the 2 hijackers that were outside the cabin. When they killed the 2 hijackers they took a wheel car in which they carried the food and start hitting the cabin door. When the door finally gave up and broke. The passengers got inside the pilot cabin and start fighting with the 2 hijackers that were left. Finally the airplane crashed into and open field near Washington D.C and nobody that was inside the airplane survived.
"United Airlines Flight 93 was a regular flight from Newark International Airport (now known as Newark Liberty International Airport) in Newark, New Jersey, to San Francisco International Airport, then continuing on to Narita International Airport in Tokyo, Japan, on a different aircraft. On September 11, 2001, the United Airlines Boeing 757-222, registered N591UA, was one of four planes hijacked as part of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. It was the only one of the four planes that did not reach its intended target, instead crashing in an empty field just outside Shanksville, Pennsylvania, about 150 miles (240 km) northwest of Washington, D.C. The 9/11 Commission (through testimony, tapes of passengers' phone calls, and the flight data recorders recovered from the crash) determined that crew and passengers, alerted through phone calls to loved ones, had attempted to overtake the hijackers. The Commission concluded that the hijackers crashed the plane to keep the crew and passengers from gaining control. The Commission's official report states that passengers and crew members fought back against the hijackers."
As you can read this is the introduction of the web-page for the 4rth kidnapped airplane. Now I am going to tell you the summary from the whole page.
The United Airlines flight 93 was a normal flight. It was a Boeing 757-222 with 37 persons inside the plain (counting the hijackers) going from New Jersey to San Francisco. But when they were at the middle of the Flight it was hijacked by four men from Al-qaeda named Ziad Jarrah (Lebanese), pilot; Ahmed al-Haznawi (Saudi Arabian), Ahmed al-Nami (Saudi Arabian), Saeed al-Ghamdi (Saudi Arabian). All of the terrorists were seated on first class and 2 of them with knife, as in the movie United 93.
In conclusion comparing the movie United 93 from what really happened the movie had many true facts about the airplane, the hijackers, and the rebel of the passengers. If you have the opportunnity to see the movie United 93 see it I promise you wont be disapointed and you will understand better this post.
On my next post I will like to write about Sadam Husein. And this is the end of my post I hope you enjoy reading it!

Osama Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda
Today I was researching for Osama Bin Laden and Alqua-eda when I found 2 very good posts about this topic at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osama_bin_Laden and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al-Qaeda. this is a very good web-page because it has lots of facts and very good information about the topic that I am interested in The Teen Life Project.
Here is my conclusion from what I read. Alquaeda is the name given to an international alliance of militant Islamist organizations established in 1988 by Osama Bin Laden which is the founder of this organization.
Osama Bin Laden or Usama bin Laden was born at March, 10, 1957 in Saudi Arabia. Ossama's parents divorced very soon when he was born. Osama stayed with her mom, after some time Osama Bin Laden's mom maried again and Osama ended up living whith 3 step brothers and one stepsister. Right now Osama has maried many times and has from 12 to 24 children. Osama Bin Laden is tall and thin, being 193 cm to 195 cm tall and weighing about 75 kg usually wearing a white turban. He is The FBI Teen most wanted fugitive and is responsible for terrorism attacks like the ones of the 9/11. and more attacks to other countries.
Attacks of 9/11:
like in this web-page said at the Morning of September, 11 , 2001 4 air plains were controlled by 19 terrorists from Al-Quaeda (Ziad Jarrah,Ahmed al-Nami, Saeed al-Ghamdi, Ahmed al-Haznawi, Hani Hanjour,Khalid al-Mihdhar,Majed Moqed, Nawaf al-Hazmi, Salem al-Hazmi, Marwan al-Shehhi, Fayez Banihammad, Mohand al-Shehri, Hamza al-Ghamdi, Ahmed al-Ghamdi, Mohammed Atta, Satam al-Suqami, Waleed al-Shehri, Wail al-Shehri, and Abdulaziz al-Omari ). All of them exept one crashed to one part of The United States of America. One of them To the South Tween Tower in New York, Unite States, the second one to the North Tower which later resulted by making collapse both Tween Towers (North and South). The 3rd air plain crashed to the Pentagon in Arlington Country. The 4th airplane was going to crash the White House but fortunately the passengers of the airplane attempted to retake control of their plane from the hijackers which later ended up crashing into a field. All of these happened in only one day 9/11 and killing almost 3,000 people. The USA named Bin Laden and the Al-Qaeda organization as the prime suspects. They putted a reguard of $25 million plus $2 million of the airlines.
Others attacks of Alqua-eda include:
- Singapore embassies attack plot
-Kenyan Hotel bombing in Mombassa
-Rizal day bombings in Philippines
-Limburg tanker bombings
-Foiled attacks on Western warships in the Strait of Gibraltar.
-Kidnapping and murder of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl.

kidnaping at Colombia.
"No country is as plagued more by kidnapping as Colombia, where an estimated one
in three of the world's abductions occur. Leftist Guerrillas, who control large
swaths of countryside, have made it a lucrative business. Ransom kidnapping by
guerrillas, blamed for half of Colombia's 10,000 reported cases since 1990, has
crippled some of the country's industries, forced highway projects to be
canceled in midconstruction, and has impoverished entire regions."
This is what Steve Macko said on the first parragraph of his article.
One example of political kidnapping is the one of Fernando Araugo. Presently he was found after 6 years of kidnapping. The 31 of December of 2006 some militaries troops went to the place were it was thought they had Fernando Araugo. When they confirmed his was there, they started shooting the place. Fernando Araugo, getting advantage of the shooting escaped from the kidnappers site and got into the jungle. At the jungle he stayed 5 days lost until the sixth day in which he found the way to a town in which he talked with some militaries. The militaries talked him to Cartagena (were he lived) to encounter again with his family. Now he is free!
I hope you like this post please leave comments!

The second topic we talked about was physical environment. The first one who talked was us the followed by Virginia school, and at last the Canada school. On these presentations each one talked about the global warming if it was affecting the places were we lived? We also talked about the water. Transportation and the crime rate of each place. We also talked about our community and what were the places that we liked to go on weekends, and the geographic features. We also talked about tourisms and it affect on the places, and traffic. The last thing we talked was the people and about the climate.
The last topic that we talked about was the social environment. This time the first school that started talking was the Canada school, the followed by us and at last the Virginia school.

I am Sebastian
The sub-20 tournament in Paraguay is something that I am preoccupied. Where all the team of South America competes with each other. I am going for Colombia. Colombia is good the first match it won 2-1 vs. Argentina; the second match it lost 1-0 against Uruguay, and the 3 match it won vs. Venezuela the person that took us to the victory of this game was pino the best player of Colombia and I think of the tournament. Colombia will be playing against Chile and I hope that It win the game and the tournament. In European soccer F.C.B is my favorite team, this team has very good players like: Ronaldinho, eto'o, messi, and puyol.
Something I am really concerned about is the pollution. The industries, cars, buses, smoking, and more things are throwing lots of harmful gases to the atmosphere. When I talk about the atmosphere I include the ozone layer. These gases are damaging the ozone lager causing more solar radiation to reach the earth. During several years the ozone layer will be so thick that the solar radiation reaching the earth will make the ice on the artic and Antarctic zone melt, increasing the sea level and making some cities that cartagena that is near the shore sink.
Another thing I am concerned about is the Cartagena’s insecurity. IN the past years you can walk in the CArtagena streets without being preoccupied that something will happen to you. But right now Cartagena isn't insecure. People are robbing allot and you can not walk in a secure way. I think that this is happening because because the high average of unemployed people so to have something they have to rob to obtain that. They are normalling robbing cell-phones, ipod, and other valuable devises. In cartagena sometimes there are kidnapping people. One example is Fernando Araugo which was an ex-minister and was kidnapped for 5 years.

((Response to Maple Street's Monsters))
Oh, this was freaky. What I think they were trynig to mean by saying that, is that they are going to go trough each part of the world doing the same things, and if the people keep fighting between each other and blaming other people the will destroyeach other and they will not going to move a finger. The lesson that the author has for all the world is: if you are on a problem don't fight because you'll end up distroying yourself!!
Figure 2. "And this pattern is always the
Figure 1. "Whith few variations. They pick the most dangerous enemy they
can find and its themselves. And all we have to do is sit back and watch."
Figure 2. " Then I take this place... this maple
sreet... is not unique"

Call of Duty 2
One day I invited Sergio a friend to my house. When he arrived he brought with him a computer game it was called "Cal of Duty 2" (this is a shooting game of war World 2). He asked me if I want it, and I said "yes", I want to try it normally I don’t like computer games I am bad at them and for me they are complicate but, I want to at least try. Sergio grabbed his c-d and started instilling it on my computer and when it was ready I started playing it. I played a little bit and I find it hard I didn't like it at all. I told him that sorry but I didn’t like it but I also said to him thank you for installing it. At night Sergio went to his home. And at next day I said to my self "let’s try again!". So I turned the computer on and start playing my new game. I last time and time and when I realized I had liked it and it was late in the after noon. Every night me and my friends connect in the game and start to play together on a stage. When compete between each other, WE HAVE FUN PLAYING THIS GAME!
In conclusion I think this game is excellent. It is realistic and has wonderful graphics. I wish that you buy this game, and if you do I hope you have lots of fun with it and share it to your friends so that you can compete with each other and have fun with it!

Short story fraft::...;
The class of 45 minutes passes and the Religion class begins. " Come on, this is my last chance to finish my homework," Steve says. The class started by telling the story of Adan and Eva. "Oh, what borring," steve said. He starts doing his homework but he reach a part that he doesn't know what to do. He ask many classmates what to do? But many ansewered, "why are you doing that homework at this time, I'am not going to help you". He kept asking and asking until one of his best friends Juan Carlos a friendly, bondadous, and responsable person explaned the part of the homework that he wasn't able to do becouse of not paying attention in class. Because of this friend he was able to finish 20 questions more but this amount wasn´t enough it gaved him a total of 40 questions but the homework was of 50 and Math class was at 8: 40 and this time was reaching.
And for now and on Steve does his promise that he had said to god that if he finishes the homework he will do every single one that is anounced by a teacher for now and one. If you dont want to be nervous and in a hurry for doing a homework, here is some advice: Every time you have homework write it in a paper so that you remind to do it at your house and as a result you will succeed in your homework assignments!!

Me and my Broken Ankle
During those 2 weeks everything was as they should. Everyone brought me the stuff that I needed and paid a lot of attention to me (this was a very good thing). When the 2 weeks passed I went to some physiotherapy; and when my ankle was ready, I continued my normal life.

A big Problem
So we decided to throw the leg into the garbage, but what would we do with the other part the chair it was big and it didn’t fit in the garbage; so we putted in the roof of the 12 story building. We hoped that time passed and anyone will now nothing. We kept playing on the pool but very nervous that someone sees the chair and as a result we'll be in huge problems. Night came and every friend went to its home. That night as I very scared I almost can’t sleep. 4 or 5 days passed and my mom said to come here that she was going to tell me something important; I knew it will happen something bad. She told me that she and the building knew that we had brake the chair and that we would have consequences; we talked about what happened and why I didn’t told her the same day of the incident, I told her that sorry and that it wouldn’t happened again. After I had talked with her the entire situation she told me that we would have to pay it. Now I was in really big problems. I called each friend and told them that they already knew about the chair and that we will go to have to pay it. Some persons agreed and some disagreed but finally everyone putted money to pay it.

[[The Best Vacations of My Life]]
And finally our trip was next day. That night we packed all things that were needed in our backpacks. I could not sleep I was very anxious and my friends to. When the sun went out I waked up it was 6:00 I could believe that the day of the trip had reached. Everyone take a shower, we ate break fast and made the usually routine that we usually make; as soon as everyone was ready we leaved to the air port. When we got to the airport there was Daniel and Luis Carlos Family; later Miguel got to the airport. Time passed and every family was now sitting on the airplane. There we were like 2 hours until we reached to the Miami’s airport. There we grabbed our backpacks and in a few minutes we divide into several groups: Miguel and Daniel in one group, me in another, and Luis Carlos in another; each group went into different airplanes but to the same destination Seattle.
They got to Seattle to Seattle, Washington; like at 1:00 am but we reached there at 5:00 pm. When we got to the air port of Seattle we had some problems with the transportation and we reached the hotel at 6:30; the hotel was horrible it even had a sign near it that said drugs and prostitution over this placed, y felt very scared. The other 3 family were supposed to be there, but they weren’t so we had to look at them so we took a public bus that was horrible too. It passed minutes looking for them, but we founded them. We (the four families) got dinner and take another time the public bus to the hotel. We slept early because the next day was the Cruise to Alaska.
The next day we went into vans to the place were we took the cruise. It was like a dream; the Cruise was huge it was very pretty and elegant and it all yours for 7 days. The first day we had a fire drill this was very important for our safety. Every one including my sister had its room carnet for entering. In the cruise we made many friends from every part from the world China, Europe, and 3 from Bogotá. If you looked from the Cruise window you may see icebergs and whales jumping. There were many activities from arcade rooms and fun factories, you could plat soccer, ping pong, basketball and other sports; trust me you will never be bored in a cruise. One of the best things of the cruise was the food you could eat whatever food that you want ice-cream, pizza, hamburgers, salad, sushi, and millions of food more; you could eat at whatever time even at 2 of the morning, and the amount that you want. It had like 3 pools but they were extremely cold because of the weather. We also learned some magic tricks on the night, the night dinners were very elegant and you should bring pretty dresses, shirts, pants, etc. days were very long because nightfall was like at 10:30 pm (it was very cold and windy at nights) It was so exiting that I prefer have fun in the cruise than seeing the world Cup 2006 matches. We made several stops on Juneau the capital of Akaka, there we got on a little car that left us in the top of a mountain, we also went to Ketchikan which for me was the coolest, we went in a boat to see whales and other sea animals this was a wonderful experience, and in Skagway were I saw snow for second time and saw wild bears. And in the 5th day we made the last stop to see the oldest glaciar. But every good thing has to end one day. It was a amazing Cruise, I wish to do that again!!
When we got to Seattle we spend 2 nights more in it while the other three families stayed one day and from that and on made another trip. During those days we visited the space needle, the airplane museum which was great, visit the public market, the first Nike shop. And we check out a car for going to Vancouver, Canada.
In the way of Canada was very long we had to cross a very log line for the frontier. We reached Canada at night and at soon as we got to the hotel which was millions of time better of the one in Seattle. Canada is a great place with lots of things it is very clean and there are very little poor people. I enjoy it very much. I had there a very hard experience that was to hike a mountain it took me 2, hours and when I reached its peak I was felt like dying. I was in there 5 days. And in the 6th one I took another airplane to Miami.
When I was in Miami the climate changed allot, it was really hot compared to Alaska's. There we shopped, went to the beach and few things because we were only there 2 days. As I have say you before every good thing ends and the 3rd day in Miami we went to the airport there we met Miguel and his family. And we both came to Cartagena together. When we arrived to Cartagena everything as before. It was the best trip I ever had in my whole life, I wish you could do the same trip as me and my friends, you would be fascinated!!!!

Soccer the Best Sport!!
My favorite sport is soccer and I enjoy playing this port. It helps you in many ways because you have fun an at the same time you do exercise, and as a result you will have a very healthy life. I started practicing soccer since I was in 2nd grade; and I think I am good at it.
When I got to middle school (6th grade) I went to the school soccer tryouts(this is when they make practices too see how people play and chose the team). I was very nervous but finally the coach chose me to be on the team. Right now I am in 7 grades and I qualified again to the school soccer team, my position is goal keeper. I am doing my best, and putting lots of effort on it so each day I get better playing that wonderful sport.
A Very Good Experience!!
I think my expectations for the blog were quite okay. It has been a awesome experience until this day, and my expectations, thoughts, and feelings haven't change. You can make posts of whatever you want. Its very easy in the terms publishing stuff; like Editing changing the color of the letters, the size, background, pictures which gives color to your post, and videos; this things you could do them in a short amount of time, I was very amazed! . But it also has some difficulties because its better if you do one that every person(boy and girls) will enjoy, and the site were you make your post doesn’t have spelling check so you will need to be very careful with those things.
In conclusion it’s very interesting but you will have to put allot of interest on it or you will not success doing this assignment.

For me F.C Barcelona is the best Europe soccer club. I don’t like it because of its players, I like it because the way they play their games and their excellent ability to win their matches. I started being a fanatic of Barcelona almost 8 months ago when I saw a Barcelona match vs. Real Madrid in which Barcelona won 3-1, after that match they kept winning games, cup, leagues, etc and I realized that I was a fanatic of Barcelona. Now he is one of the best Europe soccer club.
