Three teenagers were killed and two others were seriously injured near Dyer, Tennessee, United States early Tuesday afternoon when a driver with a restricted learners license, lost control of her sport utility vehicle, ran off the road, and struck several trees. Kayla Pate, 16, lost control of her vehicle when her right tires left the road and she attempted to swerve back onto it.

Two teens were pronounced dead on the scene and one later died in hospital. The deceased were identified as 17-year-old Ryan Williams, 15-year-old McKenzie Coble, and 15-year-old Anthony Jones. Driver Pate and another passenger, Hope Jones, were seriously injured. None of the teens were wearing seatbelts.

Tennessee’s Graduated Driver License stipulates that drivers under 18 can have only one passenger in a vehicle unless he or she is accompanied by a licensed driver more than 21 years old who holds an unrestricted license. Tennessee also requires seatbelts for drivers and all passengers.

“The car runs on fuel. Really we didnt know that.oh wait, I just make full my car with gas this morning! You might be thinking that an expository essay is about telling straight forwarded that this is a white cat, the end. Well this college essay doesnt work that way.

When writing a college essay especially an Expository Essay, you need to explain the, each step that are to be taken by you. You cant make a direct statement, or you will be ending directly with an F. In expository essay you have to expose the truth behind the topic, whether they are good or bad. In expository essay you cant add your own opinion; your job is just to expose both sides of the coin.

To begin with your college essay, you should be a complete understanding of the topic itself, and that is done by research and brainstorming. If you arent familiar with that topic, then dont bother to write that college essay as it will confuse you more. There are below most important things those have to be remembered

1) Focus.

YouTube Preview Image

2) Synchronization of the points

3) Factual Details

You may get confused here but I will explain it in further later. Lets begin your college essay.

The beginning is the customary introduction and You have to give the topics background but only the main details, no need to go farther, it will only make your college essay more irrelevant, the reader doesnt have time to read the entire history he just wants solid facts.

After the introduction comes the hard part, exposure. In the coming paragraphs you need to explain properly that the topic is really what about and how its connected to various other fields, topics etc. dont forget to add facts, figures, and excerpts of recognized people, it will only make your college essay more strong for an A+

When writing an essay, you have a lot of data in hand, and while writing you may get lost and forget to bring together, make synchronized paragraphs and add factual details along the way. If a model is necessary to properly explain the topic then draw one, all science fields require a model and this college essay will require one as well. You can add an index so that when the reader starts to read he will at least understand the flow of your college essay. You can make the flow of your college essay ascending or descending, meaning giving the strong fact first and then connecting it later with minute details or vice versa.

You may think to add creativity like add your own comments, well dont do that, the expository essay is about exposing not some debate.

The conclusion is always about recap, summarizing and cramming the details in to a one header pointer. In the conclusion add the finale of your topic, like what is the future, what do scholars say about it, what type of and how much research has been done in that field etc. Dont forget to revise and proof read your college essay one more time

India is the latest of the countries where the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) experiment has started. Children from the village of Khairat were given the opportunity to learn how to use the XO laptop. During the last year XO was distributed to children from Arahuay in Peru, Ban Samkha in Thailand, Cardal in Uruguay and Galadima in Nigeria. The OLPC team are, in their reports on the startup of the trials, delighted with how the laptop has improved access to information and ability to carry out educational activities. Thailand’s The Nation has praised the project, describing the children as “enthusiastic” and keen to attend school with their laptops.

Recent good news for the project sees Uruguay having ordered 100,000 of the machines which are to be given to children aged six to twelve. Should all go according to plan a further 300,000 machines will be purchased by 2009 to give one to every child in the country. As the first to order, Uruguay chose the OLPC XO laptop over its rival from Intel, the Classmate PC. In parallel with the delivery of the laptops network connectivity will be provided to schools involved in the project.

The remainder of this article is based on Carla G. Munroy’s Khairat Chronicle, which is available from the OLPC Wiki. Additional sources are listed at the end.

Manuka Honey Creams for Skin Care by Frank BuonanotteHoney has been used for centuries to aid skin health and beauty. However, studies have indicated that not all honey is created equal. One specific type of honey known as ‘Manuka Honey’, has proven to have more healing properties than all the others. It is derived from the nectar of a particular floral source indigenous to New Zealand. Scientists have now discovered that Manuka Honey even has more healing properties than antibiotics and other forms of traditional medicine and therefore is more effective in treating certain symptoms. Studies show that the medicinal benefits of Manuka Honey are extraordinary for moisturizing, nourishing, healing, rejuvenating and protecting. It contains nutrients, vitamins, amino acids and minerals. Even though honey had been used as a medicine in the past, the development of antibiotics left medical professionals with the misconception that honey was merely a home remedy. This misconception is now being reconsidered as new research proves the healing value of honey to be far greater than previously recognized. Manuka honey has special qualities that not only work as a humectant, drawing moisture into the skin, but it also contains a unique active component that makes it one of the most biologically active and beneficial honeys for the skin.The ability of Manuka Honey to stimulate wound healing and promote healthy skin is well documented. Manuka Honey is reported to stimulate the immune system and provide the nutrients for cell metabolism and rapid tissue repair. It also contains lactic acid, which aids in the clearing of dead skin cells. The bioactivity of Manuka Honey is referred to as the unique Manuka factor or UMF. This factor is associated with the strong antimicrobial activity of Manuka Honey against bacteria which is the source of skin and wound infections.Manuka Honey is made by bees that use the nectar from flowers that grow on the Manuka bush. It is this nectar that sets Manuka Honey apart from other types of honey in terms of it’s healing properties. The healing benefits of Manuka Honey are its antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. The components in Manuka Honey that add to its healing activity are hydrogen peroxide, glucose, fructose, lactic acid, vitamin C, niacin and riboflavin. These components make Manuka Honey an ideal combatant to microorganisms that cause skin irritation and infections. It has also been found to be effective against the MRSA bacterium, which is resistant to antibiotics.Because of its extraordinary healing properties, Manuka Honey is now being used as a main ingredient in various health care products as a natural healing agent. Like all honeys, Manuka Honey is sticky and not particularly user-friendly when applied to the skin. As a result, skin creams containing Manuka Honey are a much more viable option. Honeymark International, a manufacturer of Manuka Honey products have developed a variety of skin creams effective in treating conditions such as eczema, arthritis, wounds, burns, etc. “Our products are so effective that people who have tried other products unsuccessfully their entire lives are finally getting good results with our products,” says Frank Buonanotte, CEO of Honeymark International. “In addition to Manuka Honey, our products also contain other helpful ingredients that contribute to their effectiveness.”For more information or to purchase Manuka Honey creams, call 1-866-427-7329 or visit Source:

Aung San Suu Kyi, the detained leader of the National League for Democracy in Myanmar marked her 62nd birthday today, still under house arrest, where she has spent most of the past 17 years.

About 250 supporters met at the National League for Democracy (NLD) headquarters in Yangon, not far from Suu Kyi’s home, and held a rally calling for her release. Doves and balloons were released into the air, under the watchful eyes and video cameras of around 50 plainclothes police officers, who were stationed across the street.

The police force was augmented by a dozen truckloads of members of the Union Solidarity and Development Association, the political arm of the State Peace and Development, the junta that rules Myanmar.

“The doves symbolise peace. We also released colourful balloons, which rise like her prestige when they fill the sky,” NLD women’s wing leader Lai Lai was quoted as saying by Agence France Presse.

With the party marking marking Suu Kyi’s birthday as “Myanmar Women’s Day,” Lei Lei read out a statement at the ceremony, calling Suu Kyi “irreplaceable” and praising her “honesty, bravery and perseverance.”

Security was beefed up around Suu Kyi’s lakeside home on University Avenue, which is usually open to traffic during daytime, but is closed on significant anniversaries such as Suu Kyi’s birthday or the May 30 anniversary of her detention.

NLD supporters said police were also watching their homes.

“Plainclothes police circled around my house on their motorcycles last night until dawn,” Su Su Nway, 34, was quoted as saying by Agence France-Presse. She was arrested on May 15 with 60 others during a prayer rally for Suu Kyi in Yangon, and was released for health reasons on June 7. She said around 52 NLD supporters were still in custody.

Suu Kyi is generally barred from receiving visitors, so she spent the day alone. Except for her maid, a personal physician, a dentist and an eye specialist, the only other person to visit with Suu Kyi in the past year was United Nations Undersecretary-General for Political Affairs Ibrahim Gambari, whom she met for one hour last November at a government guest house.

Winner of the 1991 Nobel Peace Prize, Suu Kyi has been under house arrest for 11 of the past 17 years, continuously since 2003. Her National League for Democracy won a landslide election in 1990, but the military, which has ruled Myanmar since 1962, refused to honor the results. The country is also known as Burma, but the military government renamed it Myanmar in 1989.

Calls for Suu Kyi’s release have been issued by the NLD, various world bodies and other countries, but the pleadings have been met by no response from the generals.

“In our view, until their constitution is ratified, she will not be released,” Sann Aung, a Bangkok-based leader of the Burmese government-in-exile was quoted as saying by Reuters.

“They are worried that she will be a threat to the National Convention and the referendum,” he told Reuters, referring to the planned national referendum on a new constitution that is being written by the generals.

The Nation newspaper in Bangkok marked Suu Kyi’s birthday with an editorial, saying that sanctions against the Myanmar regime have been ineffective.

“The junta has earned huge amounts of foreign revenue from oil and gas exports, with prices jacked up many times over. With rich mineral resources, energy hungry countries have been attracted to Burma despite the repressive nature of the junta,” the editorial said, also making note of a recent deal that Russia has made to build nuclear reactor in Myanmar.

The paper also said Myanmar bodes ill for the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations regional grouping.

“As long as Aung San Suu Kyi remains incarcerated, ASEAN’s reputation and the group’s international standing will be tarnished. Asean leaders have repeatedly appealed to the Burmese junta to free her, but to no avail … today, Burma is the black sheep of ASEAN. Without any current provisions for sanctions, Burma will remain as intransigent in the future as it is today.”

A couple from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada has been arrested on charges of public mischief after listing their seven day old baby girl on the popular Internet classified ads website Craigslist.

The listing claimed that the baby was unexpected, “healthy and very cute”. It asked CAN 10 000 for the baby. It also listed a phone number belonging to a stolen cellphone, which was used to find the couple.

It was first noticed by a 62-year old grandmother browsing the website for furniture, who said “I was shaking, and I thought, ‘Come on, how did this even get through?'” The couple claimed that the listing, which has since been removed, was a hoax.

The father, Jeremy Pete, had a history of car thefts and evasion of police, while the mother, 23-year-old Bethany Granholm, had convictions of property theft, fraud and impersonation. The parents have now been released, but charges are still being considered. The baby has been placed in provincial care.

A suspected copycat incident occurred just four days later, also offering a seven-day-old baby girl for CAN 10 000 on Craigslist. This incident turned out to be a hoax, and no child was in danger.

Last week saw a similar incident in Germany, where a couple listed a seven month old baby on eBay. In this case the police have launched a child trafficking investigation, despite the parents’ assertion that the listing was a joke.

Men in search of tips for better sensual activity are willing to go to all sorts of outrageous lengths for one simple reason: Better sensual activity is just that good! But its entirely possible that many men are overlooking an option right under their noses quite literally. Yes, considering the use of olfactory enhancements in the sensual experience (especially combined with attention to excellent good male organ care) can often lead to even better sensual activity.

Olfactory enhancements

Olfactory enhancements is a fancy way of saying Dont neglect the power of the sense of smell to add spice to the sensual experience. Most people already know the power of other senses in sensual play. The sense of touch is quite obvious, whether its fingers brushing the member or the feel of the manhood enveloped by the female organ. Taste comes very much into play with kissing, and the sound of mood music is often an exciting enticement. And any man who has ever perked up at the mere sight of a beautiful woman passing by knows how important the visual element can be.

But the sense of smell doesnt tend to get as much play as it deserves. Sure, a man will splash on some aftershave or a woman will carefully apply some perfume, to good effect. But smell more often is remembered when it carries a negative connotation, such as a person with body odor or bad breath.

But the fact is that paying attention to using scents and aromas can positively enhance a couples bedroom play.


So what should a man do if he wants to use olfactory enhancements in his coupling? A few hints are:

1.Consider the other person. Every person is different with different preferences and what may be pleasant or alluring to one man might be off-putting to his partner (and vice versa). A guy may like the smell of roses, but if his partner has a flower allergy, filling the bedroom with roses may be a bad idea. Or one person may find a particular cologne enticing while another wrinkles her nose up at it. Take the time to find out what scents work for ones partner and dont be afraid to simply ask them.

2.Research. Many sites offer suggestions about aromas that are supposed to intensify the intimate experience. For example, vanilla, cinnamon and jasmine are frequently cited as aromas that can help get the sensual motors running. Strike off the list those items that you already know dont appeal to you and/or to your partner. Then figure out the ones that you most want to try out with your mate.

3.Start slow. A few spritzes of a special mixture of scents is a better place to start than pouring half a bottle onto the bedsheets. Scents can linger and be hard to get rid of, so starting out too strong can lead you down an unprofitable road.

4.Expand. When you find something that works, find different ways to disseminate the scent. Vanilla, for example, can be used through baked goods, dabbed behind the ears, scented in sheets or released through burning a candle.

Olfactory enhancements are just one of the tips for better sensual activity, but its up to the man to keep his male organ healthy so he can better enjoy that sensual activity. Regular application of a top drawer male organ health crme (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) is an excellent way to maintain that health. Since the olfactory angle is being explored, be sure the crme includes vitamin A, which has powerful antibacterial properties that fight nasty male organ odor. Any crme worth its salt will also include L-arginine, an amino acid. It plays a crucial role in the process by which manhood blood vessels dilate and become receptive to increased blood flow.
