Three Tips for Parenting Success!

I believe there is no one way to parent. We are all different people with different family circumstances. In regards to good parenting, I think many of us agree that there are many roads that lead to Rome. So, I'm not going to try to tell you what you have to do or how you have to do it as a parent. I'm just going to give you three more tips to add to your arsenal of parenting strategies.

First, I want to point out that there is no such thing as quality time when it comes to effective parenting. Either you're there for your children or you're not. And I can certainly tell you that our kids want us to be there for them way more than they want us off saving the world somewhere else and only briefly popping into their lives in a whirlwind.

Another great tip to parenting is to build a strong food culture within your family. Countries like Italy and France that have strong food cultures also have strong family bonds. In other words, share a meal together and make it a family tradition. Now, I'm not saying to overindulge to the point where you all become unhealthy. I'm just saying that a family that breaks bread together tends to stay together.

Next, sometimes it's easier to parent other children than our own. We've all had one of our kid's friends over, and the friend was more polite and helpful than our own. This does mean our kids are lacking something. It's just natural for our kids to put themselves on auto-pilot when they are around us and their friends, who don't really know us, to be on their best behaviors when around us.

Now, as my Granddaddy always said, "Go learn, lead, and lay the way to a better world for all of us." Feel free to use these three parenting tips anytime you want to add some more options to your parenting strategies. And once again parents, thanks in advance for all that you do, and all that you will do …

Around the English Premier League – Round 38

It was an incredible season finale, full of mixed emotions as City turned into the new Champion and fooled the Red Devils that believed for a second they had conquered the title.

On Sunday, May 13, the last ten fixtures were played simultaneously and as some were just looking for a couple of points more and maybe even try to finish in a higher position, others were having a life or death encounter; for the championship title and the third relegation spot were still undefined. QPR and Bolton were struggling to stay out of relegation, whereas the two clubs from Manchester were tied at the top of the standings with 86 points -both with chances to conquer the title; however the Sky Blues had an advantage of 8 goals on the Goals Difference. At Manchester were the Citizens hosting Queens Park Rangers, while the 2nd placed, United, went north to visit the Black Cats.

So, the only way that the Red Devils could take the lead was if City got defeated while they were winning at the Stadium of Light. Therefore when Sir Alex Ferguson and his men finished victorious -thanks to Wayne Rooney's 20th-minute-goal- and aware of the disadvantage their neighbors had in that moment, they were about to start celebrating. In fact, United carried for almost an hour the first position and with it the glory of the 20th title. However soon enough -enough to stop Fergie's embarrassment of celebrating ahead of time- you could see fans all over the crowd in the stadium on their cell phones with disappointment and surprised expressions on their faces what just had happened in Manchester.

The Sky Blues' opened the scoreboard during first half with Zabaleta's goal. But at the return from the interval QPR needed to take the lead, since Bolton was winning at Britannia Stadium, which was placing the southern club on the 18th position of the standings -in relegation zone. Therefore early in second half the Rangers struck back and placed two marks, which left them out of danger; but left City in an unsafe situation. Nevertheless it was the Citizens' fate to achieve the title for his supporters, and following a couple of changes on the light blue alignment they were able to take the lead with two unbelievable goals during the injury time; the first one at 90 + 2 by Edin Dzeko and the second was settled in less than two minutes by Sergio Aguero.

In the end it didn't matter to the Rangers that much that they were defeated because Bolton was tied by Stoke City at 77 ', when Adam Bogdan unfairly challenged Peter Crouch and through the penalty shot Jonathan Walters settled the 2-2. Resulting from that draw, which by the way was the only one from the 38th round, the Trotters have joined the Blackburn Rovers and Wolverhampton, to complete the relegated trio. Meanwhile, since Chelsea has qualified to the UEFA Champions League final and therefore has earned a ticket to the next season also, Tottenham has lost the chance to participate in the 2012-13 Champions, even though it finished in 4th place. This is because UEFA only allows four clubs from the Premier League in the Champions; even so the Spurs will go to the 2012-13 UEFA Europa League.

Regarding to the annual tributes from the Barclays Premier League, two of the new champions, a Gunner and the Magpies coach were honored. First, the award for 'Barclays Player of the Season' was presented to Vincent Kompany and for his 17 blank sheets Joe Hart received the Barclays Golden Glove. But the biggest award winner was the top scorer of the season (30 goals), Robin Van Persie, the Dutchman not only received the Barclays Golden Boot, but also the awards for PFA Players' Player of the Year and FWA Footballer of the Year for his performance along Arsenal.

All the results from Round 38: Chelsea 2-1 Blackburn; Everton 3-1 Newcastle; Manchester City 3-2 QPR; Norwich 2-0 Aston Villa; Stoke City 2-2 Bolton; Sunderland 0-1 Manchester United; Swansea 1-0 Liverpool; Tottenham 2-0 Fulham; West Brom 2-3 Arsenal; Wigan 3-2 Wolves.

Copenhagen in Denmark – Tourist For Culture and History of Denmark

Many cruise ships visit the capital of Denmark, Copenhagen, and stay a few days in this charming small capital. This isn’t a bad encounter with a capital of a country that has been there as a kingdom for more than 1000 years. Lying very far to the east of the country Copenhagen might seem to have a strange geographical position in the country.

Maps of Denmark will show how the east coast of Zealland (Sjælland) with Copenhagen and its harbour at the border of Oeresund, (Øresund) is lying at the entrance of the Baltic Sea, a water of huge importance at present days, and of even more importance through former history of Northern Europe.

The real background for the geographical position of Copenhagen that far east is that the Danish kingdom included for 800 years a large part of what is now southern Sweden, the counties Skåne, Halland and Blekinge, (up to year 1645). During hundreds of years this location of the capital was the ideal position exactly in the middle of the Danish Kingdom concerning east-west.

When you land with an airplane in Copenhagen you will land at the Kastrup Airport convenient situated just 12 minutes by the train to the central station of Copenhagen and in fact to the heart of Copenhagen. From the central station you will have easy access some of the main tourist attractions like Tivoli, the central square, museums and art galleries.

You should ask for a window seat for your trip to Copenhagen as you will often cross the water between Sweden and Denmark at the in-flight and you can enjoy seeing islands, lots of windmills and the big bridge between Denmark and Sweden. You will land at the very flat island of Amager and the train or taxi or Airport bus will quickly take you to the city centre.

What to see in Copenhagen

Hope you have a number of days – you will not regret it. This makes it possible for you to explore the central part of Copenhagen by walking. This will probably give you the most enjoyment and you will have the best chance to absorb the atmosphere of the Danish capital and the Danes’ way of behaving. Firstly you will remark the lots and lots of bicycles of the streets of Copenhagen. Danes like to bike as a convenient way of transport most of the year. Going by bike give no pollution and bikes are a nice and democratic way of moving around as all people will be able to afford a bicycle.

You will remark that Copenhagen is still free of skyscrapers, and the old classic buildings with green roofs and many spires are covered by corrugated cobber and give Copenhagen a special charm. The public transportation system is very good with yellow busses, the subway, called the S-train, and a Metro-line, and Copenhagen is very suitable for pedestrians.

In many places in Copenhagen you will find water, as channels, or lakes, or to the coast (harbour) towards the Sund. The water creates many nice sights and places you can rest and enjoy the local people.

Copenhagen also has a number of safe and attractive green parks and the admission to the Botanical garden is free, just near one of the main stations, Nørreport Station.

This is also just opposite to the charming castle Rosenborg, build by the Danish King Christian IV in the beginning of 1600 and surrounded by a nice park. One of the most visited tourist attractions of Copenhagen. And again when you are here, you are very near the National Gallery that hosts paintings and other kinds of art from much of the world in a nice building.

Other obvious places to visit in Copenhagen are Glyptoteket, next to Tivioli. Glyptoteket, full name Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek has outstanding collections of antic art and have a attractive small café, too.

On your route though the main walking street, Strøget, you will at at Kongens Nytorv and from there you can easily visit Nyhavn (‘New Harbour’) that was a sailors’ amusement area, but now is a very attractive place for tourists and Danes enjoying a beer and the good atmosphere.

From Nyhavn you can walk to the living place of the royal family at Amalienborg, a rather small but charming castle build around a large open square. On Sundays the Royal Garde will march and play back and forth to Amalienborg from their residence near the mentioned castle Rosenborg.

Copenhagen has many other attractions, one of the most visited in recent years has been the are Christiania, called a social experiment with many alternative ways of living and organising local inhabitants. You might have to hurry up to Christiania, as the part of Copenhagen is now becoming more mainstream like other parts of Copenhagen.

After some days in Copenhagen you might like to visit other parts of Denmark. This is easily done by train or buss. For example you can take the train to the small city Roskilde that has the graves of the kings an queens in its cathedral, and a very impressive museum with wiking ships at the coast of Roskilde fjord.

You can also take the train to the north of Copenhagen to the small city Ellsinore and visit the castle Kronborg, the famous castle of Shakespeare’s Hamlet. On the way back you can make a stop at Humlebæk and walk the Lousiana, a museum of modern art, and one of the very best and most attractive in Northern Europe.

And finally from Copenhagen you will have easy access to most of the remaining parts of Denmark, e.g. visiting the house of the fairy teller Hans Christian Andersen in Odense or Legoland in Billund. With train you can easily cross the water to visit Sweden with the city Malmoe in half an hour from Copenhagen Central Station.

Duck Tours Offer a Quacky View of South Beach

It seems like every time I sit down at one of the restaurants or cafes on Ocean Drive a big silly looking boat on wheels drives by with tourists hanging over the rails yelling at pedestrians and ‘quacking’. I always dismissed it as a silly tourist gimmick until a friend told me equally silly named «Duck Tour» was pretty interesting. One afternoon I decided to take the tour for myself, the price tag of $32 seemed a little steep at first, but I paid my fare and hoped for the best from this ‘land and water’ adventure.

The tour departs four times a day, so I decided to catch the final, 5pm tour. As I waited in line I chatted with some of the other riders, they came from all over the world to visit Miami and were excited about the infamous Duck Tour. Once we were on board we received a set of rules, a few lines to yell including ‘quack, quack, quack’ and were instructed to ‘jump over the side’ in the event the boat was to sink. Needless to say, I still had my doubts at this point.

As we turned the corner from Lincoln Ave onto Washington Ave. the guide pointed out several local attractions including Espanola Way, Club Mansion, and B.E.D. He spoke about the history of the area and explained why the buildings were referred to as ‘Art Deco’ — due to the mixed style of architecture including cubism, nauticalism, and futurism. My interest was peaking.

As we crossed the McArthur Causeway over the bay, he pointed out celebrity homes on Star Island and Palm Island and entertained us with trivia questions and corny jokes. We were encouraged to yell out and interact with the guide and our fellow riders. I admit I was starting to have fun.

As we pulled up to the dock our ‘vehicle’ instantly became a boat as we «splashed down» into the bay. This is when the real lesson began. The tour guide was very educated on the history of the bay and the beach. Despite living in Miami for several years he shared facts with us that even I was unaware of. I did not know that the massive Biscayne Bay, which averages 8-12 feet deep in most areas, was once a three-inch deep swamp that spanned from Downtown Miami to what is now Washington Ave. The City of Miami Beach and South Beach, was once called ‘Ocean Beach’ and the area only included Ocean Drive, Collins Avenue and Washington Ave. All of the streets after Washington Ave, including Alton Rd. and Bay Rd where several South Beach luxury condo buildings now sit, were made by sand dredging the swamp to make more land.

As he quoted the history of all of the islands and bridges of Biscayne Bay he also pointed out celebrity homes of famous gangster Al Capone, Leicester Hemingway (brother of Ernest Hemingway), Latin singer Paulina Rubio, and Rosie O’Donnell. When we passed the homes everyone outside stopped to wave, the riders (the real tourists) were very excited and all seemed to be having a great time. He even helped my job a little by pointing out real estate that is currently for sale.

When the tour returned to land we cruised to Ocean Drive where I, like the people I always shake my head at, quacked at the people seated at restaurants and cafés, sang loudly, and screamed at couples walking by asking them to kiss. Some cooperated, some didn’t, but ALL laughed and waved as we passed by.

When the hurricane of 1926 wiped out everything on South Beach but coral houses, J.N. Lumus sold all of the land on the ocean from 5th St to 15th Street to the City of Miami for $40,000 under the condition that it never be developed and forever be a park. I always wondered why the ocean front real estate started at 1st street in the SoFi neighborhood, ended at 5th and picked back up on 15th. We should all be forever grateful to Mr. Lumus because without this condition South Beach would not be what it is today.

By the end of the 90-minute tour I had learned so much about the city I live in, met some cool people, and had a great time. I would absolutely take the tour again, there is never a dull moment and I highly recommend it to tourists and locals alike. To make the deal even sweeter, the Duck Tour ticket serves at a coupon to several local restaurants and attractions so I definitely got a bang for my buck.

The Geography of Derby

Derby City is in the south east corner of the county of Derbyshire, in Trent valley. Along with Nottingham and Leicester it makes up the sub-region of the East Midlands, Derby is the smallest of these three cities. The world map reference for the city is latitude 52o55′ north and longitude 1o28′ west. The River Derwent is the main river running through it and is one of the few geographical features for this city, which is, by and large, flat and featureless. The average elevation in the city centre is around 50 metres. To the extreme east of the city, at Spondon and the extreme west of the city, at Mickleover, the elevation does rise to just over 100 metres.

The first known settlement in Derby was made by the Romans, in the district now known as Darley Dale, who built a fort overlooking the River Derwent. This quickly expanded to include a civil settlement from which the town and then city developed. Derby was awarded city status during the celebrations to mark Queen Elizabeth II 25th anniversary of her accession to the throne in 1977. Up until 1997 Derby was the county town for Derbyshire. However, on becoming a unitary authority on April 1st 1997 the administrative centre for the county transferred to Matlock. Derby City occupies an area of about 7800 hectares and has a population density below 30 people per hectare, making it one of the country’s least crowded cities. Derby city is split into 17 electoral wards that return 56 local councillors. The city is represented in the House of Commons, at Parliament, by three constituency MPs.

Climatically, Derby has the typical temperate climate of England. Its average December temperature is just below 40C and it has an average high of 18oC in July. The main wind direction for Derby is south westerly, meaning that most of its weather systems arrive from the Atlantic. Rainfall in Derby is typical for the English midlands, averaging around 750 millimetres of rainfall a year, with an expectancy of there being some rain falling on 150 days in the year.

The surface Geology of Derby is deposits of mudstone and sandstone that are between 1 and 10 metres thick, underlying that are mainly Triassic mudstone bedrocks. To the east and north of the city these overly the Carboniferous coal measures that formed the South Yorkshire coalfields. Whilst to the north is the Derbyshire Dome of Upper Carboniferous Limestone, which marks the southern edge, or beginning, of the Pennine Way. This is also part of the Peak District which was the first National Park to be created in Britain in 1951. Walks along the River Dove, in Dovedale, are particularly popular with tourists. However, the Peak District has contributed to the economy of Derby in more ways than just tourism. It was a major area for sheep farming and the production of wool as well as being rich in minerals. The Peak District has some of the best and most diverse Geology in England. Here you can find: Limestone’s, Shale’s, Gritstones and Sandstones including the famous Millstone Grit. Now more or less completely worked out it was a major area for Lead ore mining and a form of Fluorspar called ‘Blue John’ that was much sought after for making jewellery. The quarrying of Limestone has been taking place in the Peak District since Roman times for building stones and the production of cement and mortar. This process continues today with over 7 million tonnes of Limestone being extracted annually, from the twelve active quarries inside the park.

Engineering is very important to the economy of the city. Apart from the Rolls Royce works the city has many railway engineering companies and the Toyota production plant nearby. Almost 35% of the population are employed in manufacturing of one kind or another, making it one of the cities in the UK where manufacturing employment is greater than public administration and health services. Derby is the beginning of the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage site, which is acknowledged as being one of the places in which the British industrial revolution began in the 18th century. The combination of local wool supplies and water mills to power the new weaving looms made Derby one of the model systems for, what were then, modern factories.

The average house price in Derby city is £145, 000, with prices rising (on average) from £110,000 for a terraced house to £235,000 for a detached property. The average price for a flat in Derby is £120,000. Generally, during the period 2006-2007, house prices in Derby City rose by 10%. Compared to most of the rest of Derbyshire, house prices in the city are lower than all areas other than Spondon, to the east and Bolsover to the north east of the county. The areas of Mickleover, to the west of the city and Darley Dale to the north, are the most sought after residential areas
