The Hunger Obstacle Course

If you’re like most Americans, you’ve already had a taste: a family pilgrimage to Disneyland or a summer night at the state fair. You’ve felt the adrenaline surge as your roller coaster hurtled into that first loop, and you’ve sat gasping as it lurched to a halt. That hunger for excitement has made theme parks a $4 billion industry in the United States. But a growing number of people are no longer satisfied with the passive thrills these theme parks provide. A 1998 report from the Travel Industry Association of America shows that half of all adults in this country - more than 98 million people - have sought out something even ...
derived from the words "Parachute Batallion". The history of the Parabats started on 1 April 1961 with the formation of 1 Parachute Battalion (after 1994 renamed to Parachute Training Centre). The motto of the Parabats is Ex alto vincimus , meaning "We conquer from above".

The destruction of Thai democracy | East Asia Forum
On the afternoon of May 19, following weeks of protests and mayhem, most of the core Red Shirt leaders barricaded in the centre of Bangkok surrendered meekly to the Thai government forces. One leader who evaded capture was the volatile Arisman Pongruangrong. Just before vanishing later that afternoon, Arisman was wearing a T-shirt bearing the image of Mahatma Gandhi. The symbolism was deeply ironic. Almost a century before, Gandhi had expounded a political principle that the Red Shirt leadership, including Arisman, had still not absorbed. To dislodge an entrenched government like Thailand’s, a popular uprising had to do two ... market research, surveys and trends


The Afterschool Alliance
For millions of children in America, when schools close for the summer, safe and enriching learning environments are out of reach, replaced by boredom, lost opportunities and risk. New analysis of data from the America After 3PM study measures the extent of this problem, concluding that three-quarters of America's schoolchildren do not participate in summer learning programs - safe, structured programs that provide a variety of activities designed to encourage learning and development in the summer months. Yet, 56 percent of kids (an estimated 24 million) who are not participating in summer learning programs would likely ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Poverty Around The World — Global Issues
Third World countries are often described as “developing” while the First World, industrialized nations are often “developed”. What does it mean to describe a nation as “developing”? A lack of material wealth does not necessarily mean that one is deprived. A strong economy in a developed nation doesn’t mean much when a significant percentage (even a majority) of the population is struggling to survive. Successful development can imply many things, such as (though not limited to): An improvement in living standards and access to all basic needs such that a person has enough food, water, shelter, clothing, health, education, etc; ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Black Future - The World's Ever-Increasing Hunger For Coal
Coal-fired power stations are a major producer of the greenhouse gas CO2, but there is no alternative to the fuel in the near future. Energy companies are hoping that carbon capture and storage technologies may be the answer, but many local residents don't want CO2 stored under their backyards. When Rolf Martin Schmitz, a manager with the German energy giant RWE, drove to the North Sea resort island of Sylt last summer, he immediately noticed the signs. Along the side of roads throughout the northern German state of Schleswig-Holstein, he was greeted by images of skulls. Residents had installed the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Will Apple learn their lesson from the iPhone 4 drama?
From the prototype “found” in a bar to the “Antennagate” scandal, the iPhone 4 has been a real source of drama for Apple. They’ve handled the situations adequately enough, but what can they learn from all of this? Short answer: nothing. Let’s face it, not only are they handling things better than anyone else would, but after their recent earnings report, Apple is clearly writing the rulebook on how to do business, not reading from it. That said, these situations are a tarnish on their shine, nor did they spring from a vacuum. Apple may be a money-making machine, but they can still stand to ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Can I come back to Ranger school once I'm in division and a higher rank, even though I messed up the first time? Also, do you think a guy would be physically fit enough to get through Ranger School after already going through Army Basic and AIT?
