The expected number of days on which attendance would exceed 500 should be no more than 5 with the current membership. 2. The current average daily attendance should be no more than 320. 3. The average daily weekend (Saturday and Sunday) attendance should be no more than 500.

...aThis group activity, Cascades, is really interesting to me. Since I am very interested in field survival, I read books about how to survive in wild. I also really enjoyed watching the TV series “Man in wild”, which is crazy with some useful skills such as how to find water and how to light a fire without any lighters. Based on my personal experience, I have determined that water and keeping warm is the priority to survive in this situation. Because a man can survive for a long time by simply drink water, which should be enough for 5 days. And since these six people were trapped in such a heavily snowstorm day, to keep body warm is really important. As soon as I determined the key elements of this situation, I started to think about how to make water and how to make us feel warm and comfortable. As soon as I chose the necessary items for water and fire, I gave up the rifle immediately, which I know it is really useless because there would not be any animals to hunt and we didn’t need a gun to protect ourselves. It was easy to choose the top and bottom items, but I was kind of hesitated while choosing the middle class items. When discussing in a group, each person had offered their ideas and they all have different priorities than the others. We basically brought out items like which one was the top one and which one was the second. During this progress, all of us were trying to persuade each other because they were all so filled with passion like one of my group member was......

...Abstract In recent years, people have seen the different transitions that students take as they are growing up and going to school. Young adolescents’ are introduced to many different things in life as they are moving along to obtain a better future and become successful. The young adolescents’ are challenged by the moods of others and their own mood. Emotions are a trial all on their own especially for the young adolescents’ in the middle grade years. A Longitudinal investigation was given to 78 fifth grade students using the Piers Harris Self-Concept Scale. Data was collected from the investigation and it was found that young adolescents’ experience more positive changes than negative changes in what we know as domain-specific aspects. A Review of the Literature A longitudinal Investigation of young adolescents’ self-concepts in the middle grades was given to fifth grade students until they reached their middle school grade years. The article stated that middle grade years are a time where the young adolescents’ particularly have a challenging time transitioning. “Fresh from the nurturing environment, young adolescents often find themselves navigating new relationships and making sense of the changing school norms associated with middle grade schools. In addition to environmental changes, young adolescents are also in the midst of dramatic physical and psychological growth.

Hellespont Swim

...boat into the water of the Dardanelles and started to swim from Europe to Asia. It had all started in London over the umpteenth bottle of Bulgarian red wine. For a long time, I said, I had wanted to swim the Hellespont - the narrow channel between the Sea of Marmara and the Aegean. The Hellespont hit the mythological headlines a long time ago. Leander, who lived on the Asian side, had the misfortune to fall in love with Hero, who lived in Europe. The course of true love did not run smoothly. Geography was not on their side. The Hellespont has a nasty current ripping down the middle of it and a reputation for chewing up ships. And religion didn't help, either. Hero was a priestess of Aphrodite, and sworn to perpetual celibacy. So their meetings had to be covert and at night. Just as in most relationships, ancient and modern, the bloke did all the travelling. She held out a lantern, and he swam each night towards it. They copulated all night, and he then swam back. One night the wind blew out the lantern and that current took Leander out into the Aegean. He never returned. The heartbroken Hero had the decency to hurl herself into the Hellespont and the myth was born. The Hellespont was assumed to be swimmable only by gods. But then, after one failed attempt, Byron did it, and it has been done from time to time since. We should have a go, I said to Steve and David (fat, pale, thirty-something pie-eaters like me). If a club-footed syphilitic like Byron could do it, so could we....
