Through the eyes of Paula...

With the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics approaching quickly, it may interest some people to learn about some lesser known Olympic sports. To take a break from the well-known events, one can take a chance on watching and learning about a different event. Here are a few unusual Olympic sports.

1. Judo: Judo is a gentle way for athletes to take their opponents down – gentle as in not involving kicking or punching. This martial art uses a combination of throws and muscle power. This year marks 52 years since judo was introduced in the Olympics.

2. Rugby: Rugby may be unusual only because it has been absent from the Olympics for decades. The top contenders for the top prize are the Canadian and American women’s teams.

3. Field hockey: Field hockey is the only Olympic team sport in which there are medalists from all inhabited continents of the world. Historically played on grass, the international federation modified it to be played on a synthetic surface to provide a faster pace for flicking or chasing the ball. At Rio 2016, teams will compete in 15-minute quarters rather than 35-minute halves.

4. Trampoline gymnastics: Trampoline gymnastics only made its debut at the Sydney 2000 games, which is fairly recent. Competitors can compete solo or in teams, and they must execute an array of twists, turns, and other aerial feats while completing 10 bounces that put their bodies several metres above a trampoline.

    Vera and Martin Mosbauer remember well the very first wedding ever performed at Nativity of Mary Church. It was theirs. The Catholic parish in Independence celebrates its 75th anniversary Sunday, and the Mosbauers — who have seen it grow from the basement up — will be there.

"Over a period of seven years, selected surfaces erode, exposing new features of the vehicle. At the end of the cycle the car is returned to the manufacturer where it is refurbished to allow the cycle to start again." He claims his concept allows a "longer lasting relationship between owner and manufacturer".

    http://crowdwellness.com/ukserverscom-promotion-code-48c6.pdf#handbook ukservers.com Amazon bumped up the pixel count on the HDX, from 1,920-by-1,200 pixels to 2,560-by-1,600 pixels. That raises the pixel density to a tack sharp 339 pixels per inch. The iPad's display comes in at 2,046-by-1,536 pixels, which is comparable, but not quite as sharp at 264ppi thanks to the larger 9.7-inch screen. Will you be able to tell the difference? Maybe if you have perfect vision and look extra close, but there's more to display quality than pixel count.

    It was a total Marmite show, yet those who loved it did so for the fact that it was like nothing else they’d seen. They loved the creativity, the magic, the colour. The costumes, the makeup, the escapism, the silliness. They loved how ridiculously ambitious each episode was, jam-packed with characters, music, dance, animation. But above all they loved how funny it was and how brilliant the double act at the centre of it all was.

    My earliest memory is of standing in the nursery of Byron House School in Highgate and crying my head off. All around me, children were playing with what seemed like wonderful toys, and I wanted to join in. But I was only two-and-a-half, this was the first time I had been left with people I didn’t know, and I was scared. I think my parents were rather surprised at my reaction, because I was their first child and they had been following child development textbooks that said that children ought to be ready to start making social relationships at two. But they took me away after that awful morning and didn’t send me back to Byron House for another year-and-a-half.
