Travel World:Top 10 countries you must travel to

You really have to be a geography freak to know about these countries from the list. It’s irrelevant to us how recognized they are as countries but they surely look at themselves like that. Of course a special thanks to Wikipedia for the article’s research.
10. Vanuatu, 90% of Vanuatu people household and consume fish, and 80% are living in rural, isolated villages with their own gardens and food supplies. Scuba diving is a very popular tourist attraction here. Tsunamis are not a rare thing in Vanuatu, and earthquakes have a negative affect on the country’s economy.

9. Nauru, a former German Empire colony is also known as Pleasant Island of the South Pacific. The people of Nauru are collecting rain water during monsoon rains between November and February because they are very limited on natural fresh water. The most popular sport in this country is Australian rules football, and they have football league with seven teams.

8. Tuvalu, is a constitutional monarchy with Queen Elizabeth II as head of state. They don’t have regular military forces, and spend no money on defense. Tuvalu is the 4th smallest country in the world. The first inhabitants of the country were Polynesian people.

7. Comoros is African island nation in the Indian Ocean between Mozambique and Madagascar. The island is an old French colony, and today there is about 300 000 Comorians living in France. 98% of the population is Islamic.

6. Guernsey is under the responsibility of the United Kingdom but they don’t count as a part of the U.K, as well as the European Union. Guernsey is located in the English Channel on the coast of Normandy. They have complete autonomy over internal affairs, and they are discussing total independence from the British Crown.

5. Isle of Man, also known as Mann, is self-governing British Crown Dependency, with a location in the Irish Sea between the islands of Great Britain and Ireland. They are not a part of the European Union. Isle of Man economy is based on offshore banking and tourism. The island has been inhabited since before 6500 BC.

4. Tokelau, is a non-self-governing territory of New Zealand that consists of three islands. The name Tokelau is a Polynesian word that means “north wind”. The island has the smallest economy of any country in the world that makes them almost completely dependent on subsidies from New Zealand. 96% of the population is Christians and 57% of these are women.

3. Cook Islands, are a self-governing parliamentary democracy. With over 90 000 tourists per year, tourism is their far best industry and their leading element of the island economy, far ahead of offshore banking, marine, pearls and fruit exports. Cook Islands got named by the British navigator Captain James Cook when he arrived the islands in 1773.

2. Pitcairn Islands, officially named the Pitcairn, Henderson, Ducie and Oeno Islands, are a group of four volcanic islands that are formerly a British colony, the last remaining in the Pacific. The population’s language is a mix of English and Tahitian. In recent years the church has been closed because only 8 islanders have been visiting it regularly. There is only one Café and Bar on the island, and the Government Store is selling alcohol and cigarettes. They used to have moral strict laws which prohibited dancing, smoking and consummation of alcohol.

1. Nagorno-Karabakh Republic is the independent republic located between Armenia and Azerbaijan. Nagorno Karabakh is one of the most heavily mined regions of the former Soviet Union because of the 1991-1994 Nagorno-Karabakh War. They are still not recognized by any state, including Armenia. 95% of the population is Armenian, and the rest are Greeks and Kurds. Their tourism are basically directed to Armenians that live in Western countries.

Minor Leagues Baseball:Who is Next One?

Although his DIPS numbers look pretty good, has been Sergio Mitre gets to short stop and when he struck in his next start, can not get another chance.
Despite its depth is extremely thin at the moment has passed and the trade, I still have some options. I will be three different positions in this Article One of his minor league options, one of the options in the bullpen, and one to meet for options outside the organization. First comes your options AAA.
Ivan Nova - A very legitimate pitching prospect. After two dissapointing years in 2007 and 2008, he has finally broken out this year. He dominated AA and earned a promotion to Scranton. Nova got off to a great start there but has cooled off since then. Now his ERA is up to 4.93, his K/BB is only 1.50, and his FIP is 4.21. I'm happy they got him back from San Diego but I doubt he'll have an impact in the ML rotation this year. Also not on the 40 man roster, maybe he'll be an option in the bullpen this year.
Josh Towers - Already the ML veteran has been with three different AAA teams this year. He's spent most of his time in the Yankees and Rockies minor league systems. He was disastrous for the Rockies and, although his ERA looks good, he really hasn't been all that great for the Yankees either. The last time he had a good season was 2005. Obviously not the ideal option. Not on the 40 man roster so I'd be very surprised if they went to him.
George Kontos - Kontos is having another very nice year in the minor leagues. He's been in the Yankees system for a while now, since 2006 and has slowly marched up prospect lists. He's a controversial prospect but has overall been very succesful. He made AA hitters look silly early on in the year and got a promotion to Scranton after only 20.1 innings with an ERA of 3.66 and an FIP of 2.46. In Scranton he has fallen off a bit but still looks good. The biggest difference is that he is striking out less. He's probably not ready for the ML's yet but he's an option.
Zach Kroenke - Probably a longshot here. He started out his career as a starter but was moved to the bullpen early on. The lefty has been nothing short of incredible in AAA this year. He has a sub 1.00 ERA and an FIP of 3.64. So why do I mention a possible future setup man in this post? The Yankees have been stretching him out lately and he's made a couple of spot starts with impressive results. Just yesterday he threw five innings, giving up only 1 run, 2 hits, and a walk while striking out three. Something to consider.
Kei Igawa - We all know the Kei Igawa story. He has been completely incapable of handling the ML's but has dominated the lower levels of AAA and Japanese baseball. This year though, his dominance for Scranton has actually slipped. His ERA is up to 3.91 and his FIP is up to 4.43. He's been good there but not dominant anymore. They've invested a lot of money in him so he may get a shot. I don't have very high hopes for him though.
One other thing to note is that the long forgotton Ian Kennedy is making his way back from his aneurysm. He could be back in September and I imagine he'd bypass all these guys if they still need a starter then. That's a longer shot than even Kroenke though.

HOT:Blake Lively is So Sexy on Sherlock Holmes

Here’s Blake Lively at last night’s New York premiere of Sherlock Holmes. I can’t even imagine how cold she was - the whole Eastern corridor is in the midst of a huge cold front, and we’re getting lots of snow today and this weekend. I just checked - it’s hovering around 20 degrees Fahrenheit this morning in New York, so I can only imagine it was in the teens last night for the premiere. The men at the premiere were bundled up in scarves - meanwhile, Blake is prancing around in what basically amounts to a pair of panties and a lace chemise. She looks flawless, though. Great hair and makeup. Perhaps this look would have been better during a warmer season, though.

As many know, I’m a big fan of Blake Lively. I don’t watch Gossip Girl or anything, so I can’t really say I like her for whatever acting chops she has. I think my affection for her is that she’s one of the most interesting girls on the red carpet these days, and because I think she’s very, very pretty, albeit in a surgically altered way. Every day that I see Blake on a new red carpet, I’m happy. She’s likes to show off her T&A, as well as her legs - but rarely in a “look at me, I’m so sexy” Pamela Anderson way. Blake tries to be high fashion while she’s showing off her asset. I appreciate that. That being said, I think she should cover the hell up! I feel like her mom - but she’s seriously going to catch something if she doesn’t start wearing more clothes.

As far as the rest of the red carpet, everybody else at least made some concessions to the cold weather. Robert Downey Jr. wore a fabulous brown suit which looked great on him. Rachel McAdams opted for a strapless jumpsuit that was kind of blah. Jonny Lee Miller was there too! He looks amazing, and he was probably there to support his bestie Jude. Mark Strong is a total cueball now, but I still find him sexy. And Guy Ritchie’s date was his son with Madonna, Rocco. Rocco looked uncomfortable, which makes me feel for the poor kid.

MLB reflections over the All-Star break

baseball3Eighty-eighty games played and seventy-four more to go.  The Major League Baseball Season is at the All-Star break.  What have we learned? Let's start with the American League.
 Four of the fourteen teams are already done. They are so far behind the leaders that contending for a pennant win is a dream deferred until next year.  I call them the Dead Ducks.
Cleveland, Kansas City, Seattle and Baltimore are these dead ducks.  They will spend the rest of the season looking at new players, trading good ones to teams in the race and firing and hiring people.  Cleveland and Kansas City are in a division, AL Central, that looks like it could be close fight but these two  will not be involved.  Baltimore continues its downward plunge from a once proud franchise to a perennial also ran.  They were able to win only 29 games and are currently a peek, 27 games,  behind the leaders in their division.  They were predicted to be lousy but have exceeded all expectations.
But the biggest bust of the year has been the  Seattle Mariners  who were actually picked by many to  win the AL West because they had won 85 games last year.  With the addition of ace lefty, Cliff Lee, to go along with Felix Hernandez,  the signing of ex-Angel star Chone Figgins, a good bullpen from last year and potentially a top defense, the Mariners looked to be contenders.  But they went with two young catchers who are leading the league in passed balls and the pitching staff has thrown a league leading bunch of  wild pitches.  The defense has not lived up to expectations and the bullpen has been an out and out disaster.  Their record is 10-28 with thirteen blown saves.  The offense has been a miserable flameout. 
Ichiro has been the only consistent hitter.  Everyone else on the entire team is 35-50 points below their average.  Nobody can hit. It was recently announced that Stevie Wonder had been hired as the hitting coach for the second half.  Can't hurt.  The bullpen cannot get anyone out, have 13 blown saves and for some reason they keep starting Ryan Rowland-Smith with his stellar 1-9 record with a stingy 5.89 ERA.  He has only allowed 17 HR's in 84 innings.  Watching this team is like watching someone self-mutilate themselves with a dull knife. You may have guessed that this is or was  my favorite team.  This franchise is famous for developing players who go on to be stars on other teams. The Cub fans have nothing on us. The Mariners play ball like old people make love.  
Next are the two teams that I call Barely Above Water.  They are not totally out of it but would need a hot streak to contend.  Toronto is 44-45 and Oakland 43-46 at the break and would need to play at a .650 winning percentage in the second half to have any chance.  The odds are against these two.
The High Flyers are the eight teams near the top of their divisions.  In the weak AL West,  it would appear the Mariners gifted the pennant to Texas by giving up Cliff Lee last week but the L.A. Angels have been hot recently and are only 4.5 games back at the break.  In the Central, Chicago after a miserable start got hot, stayed hot, finished the last ten 9-1 and took over the lead of the division by a half game at the break after being behind by 9 games in early June.   Detroit and Minnesota are playing good ball.  It should be a fight to the finish between these three. 
The real High Flyers are all in the AL East where the Yankees are leading the surprising Tampa Bay squad who finished 8-2 the last ten games to remain only two back.  Boston has somehow stayed in the race despite a rash of injuries to key players.  One of these three will  be heading home without making the playoffs.  The wildcard winner will probably come out of this division.  Here are the standings at the break.

If Brown was fired model, which retained rights to the computer. This makes it easy for his new team at the turn of former teams like Cleveland Browns. They kept the same look to 1981, a new helmet, and a new uniform was implemented for the team. Brown was initially discouraged by the purchase because they were signed at the AFL.

The first season was held Nippert Stadium, currently home to the University of Cincinnati Bearcats. It ended with a record of 3-11, but it was the AFL Rookie of the Year Paul Robinson.
Once the merger is completed NFL Cleveland Browns moved to the AFC franchise that most of the AFL teams that joined the NFL was created. They were in the AFC Central with the Cincinnati Bengals, an immediate rivalry, which was triggered by the owner of the team placed created.

Focus on Worldcup 2010:Germany VS Spain

Germany will play against Spain on Wednesday in the semifinals of the FIFA World Cup 2010 in what will be a repeat of the UEFA Euro 2008 final between two teams.

Germany plays Argentina by four goals to nil to reach the semis, while Spain needed a late goal from David Villa to book a place against Paraguay in the last four teams tournament.

Both teams are fairly even game, but it seems that Germany's favorite after scoring convincing wins and a lightweight four goals in consecutive games against England and Argentina, Spain, the change has made won their last two games and scored one goal in each.

Joachim L枚w has shown that Germany believes that Spain is much more dangerous than Argentina because of their playing style he has said that Spain, the concept to success and teamwork rather that the individual qualities.

Low also said that during the last two or three years, Spain has made a remarkable consistency are different than the opposition. The manager of 50 years the German national team, said that Spain is no error in contrast to Argentina and England, also had the audacity to say that Spain has four fifty-six players as good as Messi, the players, the game can decide on its own are in the third attack.

He said that because Spain has very few mistakes in attack and defense, Germany must work harder to get more power, Spain, to create such errors. Baja said, instead of the key battle, while taking the game between Schweinsteiger Khedira and Germany against Spain Iniesta and Xavi.

He said, Xavi and Iniesta like a well oiled machine, but Schweinsteiger and Khedira are as good as anybody. Spanish star Cesc Fabregas could be in the game, but your choice in the starting lineup is questionable, as the higher form Xavis Fabregass and injuries.

The Arsenal midfielder has already said he will be ready to play in the game, but must go through the pain barrier. While in Germany will be without their son, Thomas Mueller, who achieved three times so far in the tournament. Two of his goals had been scored against England and the youngest in the quarterfinal against Argentina. Muller received a second yellow card in five games he has played in Germany World Cup will be suspended for this game.

Germany is likely to miss their targets. Sami Khedira and tend to his injured leg, which was captured by the German defenses before the game against Argentina, but retains the hope that under his midfield is young men, however.

Baja has indicated that may appear Toni Kroos and Piotr Trochowski in place of M眉ller in the German right wing. Spain manager Vicente Del Bosque has also delivered quite how his admiration for the Germans.

He said that his team will play fast attacking football, they are famous for what it does mean that the party was an open attack.
Fernando Torres injury is a problem before the game in Spanish, was not impressed with the Liverpool striker so far, but Vicente Del Bosque will be with the young striker in the hope that some can save its form can be affected.

Towers from Liverpool team-mate, Spain's second choice goalkeeper Pepe Reina said the Spanish players are on the verge of realization of a dream in the final of the World Cup and play to win. He said there have is the dream of every child and Spain are just two games from complete.

Both teams have been a constructive means of attacking football that the game can be expected to be strong, where fans can see more goals.

Let's see it!

Katy Perry reveals how she tamed Russell Brand

The mystery of how famous lothario Russell Brand was finally tamed by Katy Perry has been uncovered - she made him wait for sex.
The fiery singer has revealed she turned down the British comedian - who she said was basically a 'professional prostitute' before he embraced monogamy - on the night they met.
She boldly told him 'You've met your match m***** f*****' as she threw a plastic water bottle at him at their first meeting.
Katy Perry
Defiant: Katy Perry believes she won over Russell Brand because she didn't give him what he wanted on a platter
The pair hit it off instantly, Perry said in an interview with Esquire magazine, and went clubbing together that night. 
But when Brand assumed he would be taking the songstress home, he was in for a surprise when she refused him.
'Can you imagine the horrible feeling he had when he was used to getting everything he wanted?' she told the magazine.

Headstrong: Perry said she and her fiancé were the perfect match, as they were both larger than life

Raunchy: Perry posed in a series of provocative shots for Esquire magazine
She demanded that he take her on a date, and the romance blossomed from there. A week later, the pair were holidaying in Thailand.
Posing for a series of raunchy photographs for the magazine, the 25-year-old said she has reformed the former sex addict, who according to rumours used to sleep with up to 80 women a month.
'He was a heroin addict and now he's not. He was addicted to all kinds of things and now he's not. And he basically used to be a professional prostitute and now he's not,' she said.
'So he's an extremist, which can be both good and bad.'
'I always needed someone stronger than me and I am, like, a f****** strong elephant of a woman.'
'I say that hopefully in the humblest way I can. When we have an argument he knows I'm not just gonna throw my hands up and say, 'okay, you win.'
'Let's get into it. Let's start debating. Let's wrestle, Russell.'
Perfect match: Brand and Kerry announced their engagement in January after a whirlwind romance

Perry said she had got through to Brand's 'deep layer'.
'I always like hitting that deep spot, and I knew that West Ham was a deep spot for Russell,' she said.
Perry, who will wed the Get Him To The Greek star in a lavish October wedding, also revealed details of their engagement for the first time.
Brand got down on one knee in Jaipur, India, and had organised fireworks, roses, and even an elephant.
'Russell had a little turban on and we got into a horse and carriage which took us to this tent made out of tens of thousands of roses.
'Inside there was a stage show featuring dancers. Just before midnight, an elephant turned up. A painted elephant.'
'We rode to another part of the hotel and watched the fireworks.'
Perry said the pair were incredibly similar.
'We're both larger than life. We're kind of cartoony.'
Perry is currently celebrating her single California Gurls reaching the Number One spot, while Brand has been receiving good reviews for his latest acting role.
