A requiem of illusions
Spanish cinema remembers for the first time the Madrid terrorist attacks of the 11th of March. Alex Quiroga's Ilusiones Rotas 11-M (Broken Illusions) reflects the hopes and the frustrations of four characters living very different lives in the months before the attacks, until the fatal day, when they are all touched by the same tragedy.
The film opened in seven Spanish cities, distributed by Pirámide Films.
Flirting with a documentary style, Ilusiones Rotas 11-M was shot in high-definition digital video and combines the narration of the characters' experiences with real sequences from the attacks. According to the director, his work is not politically committed; he prefers "exploring territories of the reality which interest me. I do the kind of cinema I like to watch". 50% of the sum collected in the box office will be given to the victims of the attack

See more business news television shows featuring these experts, as they give their top expert business advice at *******www.yourbusinesschannel****
Penny Power: How do you create relationships online where you're just starting to court each other? So let me think about the ways that I would perhaps connect with someone that didn’t already. First of all absolutely critical that you read their profile because you have to make sure when you send a message that its personal. Nobody wants to see a message that looks like its been cut and pasted in so I would look at someone’s profile, every profile has something interesting to say and I would say something like I really enjoyed the blog you wrote on the 24th of March about such and such a subject I would be interested to hear what happened to you after that blog went out or I see you've got a network of 40 people but you've managed to achieve 12 testimonials, I’d love to learn from you because that's a fantastic achievement or I've just seen a photograph on your profile of a place you went on holiday did you have a great time and how do you, what kinds of holidays do you plan to take next year, something sort of showing an interest in their profile. Pick out things that they do in their business that undoubtedly would be of interest to you. I mean most people are in business all doing similar sorts of things, I mean even if you're a graphic designer, accountancy is going to be important to you, property development is going to be important to you. Pick out something in their profile that's of interest to you as well and so make sure that at all times you personalise the way that you talk to someone and 100% if you show an interest in somebody they will show an interest back in you.

Max Payne is a third-person shooter video game developed by the Finnish company Remedy Entertainment, produced by 3D Realms and published by Gathering of Developers in July, 2001 for Windows. Ports later in the year for the Xbox and PlayStation 2 were published by Rockstar Games. A Macintosh port was published in July 2002 by MacSoft in North America and Feral Interactive in the rest of the World. There were plans for a Dreamcast version of Max Payne, but they were cancelled due to the discontinuation of the console.
A sequel called Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne was released in 2003. As of March 12, 2008, the Max Payne franchise has sold over 7 million copies according to Take-Two Interactive.
Max Payne Overview
The Max Payne series has a major cinematic influence: the Hong Kong action movie genre, particularly the work of director John Woo, which features a great deal of slow-motion violence and gunfights, almost resembling ballet. "John Woo" is in fact the password that the mobsters must recite to enter their laundromat hideaway.
The game's stylish cinematography and choreography is combined with heavy film noir, pulp noir, and pulp fiction influences in characters and dialogue. Rather than employing rendered or digitized cinematic movies for cutscenes, the story is told instead with "graphic novels" and narrated in the heavy-handed style of radio detective dramas such as Pat Novak for Hire. The games are dark and noir-style, following Max Payne, a troubled cop with internal and external conflicts in a dark, sinister New York City.

Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne
Main article: Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne
At the ending of Max Payne, he was being led away in the back of a police car, about to face charges for his two night killing spree in which he killed upwards of 600 people, even though they all had criminal records. However, Max was eventually cleared of all charges, thanks to his relationship with a very influential member of society, Senator Alfred Woden. A few years have passed, and Max has returned to work for the NYPD as a homicide detective. However, during a routine murder investigation he finds himself face-to-face with the fugitive Mona Sax, a woman he thought was dead. Max and Mona team up to solve the answers to Max's past that left his wife and child dead. Between them and the answers they seek rests an army of scum and murderous thugs in New York City's underground.
Max Payne 3
The PC version's ending to Max Payne 2 teases with a message at the end of the credits proclaiming, "Max Payne's journey through the night will continue", but the story itself seems to be over, Max has found peace with his life of guilt and out of both games, Max is one of only two characters left alive (the other being Jim Bravura who survived but was left in critical condition. Mona survives in an alternate hidden ending on the Dead on Arrival difficulty level. It's yet to be known if it's canon. The third game in the series was announced by Jeffrey L. Lapin, the CEO of Take-Two Interactive in 2004. There have been no further announcements regarding the matter -- not even a developer for the third game has been named. Remedy Entertainment's name was mentioned in the announcement. At the same time, a post on Shacknews, apparently from someone claiming to be Mikael Kasurinen, a level designer for Max Payne 2, read "FYI: We are not making Max Payne 3." GameSpot notes the status of the game is TBA.
Take-Two Interactive suggested that there will be a Max Payne 3 at some point. While Take-Two didn't announce the game during its conference call, it has brought the franchise up regularly as examples of its stable of owned intellectual properties.
To my mother Laudy... God protects you mama!!
Mother's Day is a day honoring mothers, celebrated on various days in many places around the world. It complements Father's Day, the celebration honoring fathers.Different countries celebrate Mother's Day on various days of the year because the day has a number of different origins.
One school of thought claims this day emerged from a custom of mother worship in ancient Greece, which kept a festival to Cybele, a great mother of Greek gods. This festival was held around the Vernal Equinox around Asia Minor and eventually in Rome itself from the Ides of March (15 March) to 18 March.
The ancient Romans also had another holiday, Matronalia, that was dedicated to Juno, though mothers were usually given gifts on this day.
In addition to Mother's Day, International Women's Day is celebrated in many countries, most often on March 8th.In 1912, Anna Jarvis trademarked the phrases "second Sunday in May" and "Mother's Day". 
"She was specific about the location of the apostrophe; it was to be a singular possessive, for each family to honour their mother, not a plural possessive commemorating all mothers in the world." 
This is also the spelling used by U.S. President Woodrow Wilson on the law making official the holiday on the U.S., by U.S. Congress on bills,  and by other U.S. President on their declarations. 
Common usage in English language also dictates that the ostensibly singular possessive "Mother's Day" is the preferred spelling.Mother's Day is celebrated on different days throughout the world. Examining the trends in Google searches for the term "mother's day" shows two primary results, the smaller one on the fourth Sunday in Lent (it is also called ladies day and women's day), and the larger one on the second Sunday in May.
The extent of the celebrations varies greatly. In some countries, it is potentially offensive to one's mother not to mark Mother's Day. In others, it is a little-known festival celebrated mainly by immigrants, or covered by the media as a taste of foreign culture (compare the celebrations of Diwali in the UK and the United States).
Note: Countries that celebrate International Women's Day are marked with a cross '†'.In most countries, Mother's Day is a recent observance derived from the holiday as it has evolved in North America and Europe. Many African countries adopted the idea of one Mother's Day from the British tradition, although there are many festivals and events celebrating mothers within the many diverse cultures on the African continent that long pre-date colonization.
عيد الأم هو اليوم الذي تكرم فيه الأمهات, وهو يختلف تاريخه من دولة لأخرى، فمثلا في مصر يكون يوم 21 مارس، أما النرويج تقيمه في الأحد الثاني من فبراير، أما في الأرجنتين فهو يوم الأحد الثالث من أكتوبر، وفي لبنان يكون اليوم الأول من فصل الربيع، وجنوب أفريقيا تحتفل به يوم الأحد الأول من مايو. وفي الولايات المتحدة يكون الاحتفال في يوم الأحد الثاني من مايو وفيه يتم عرض صور رسمها أطفال بين السادسة والرابعة عشرة من عمرهم وتدخل ضمن معرض متجول يحمل اسم "أمي" ويتم نقله كل 4 سنوات يتجول المعرض في عديد من الدول.
أخذت فكرة الاحتفال بعيد الأم في الوطن العربي من مصر، وهو أول أيام فصل الربيع. واحتفلت مصر بأول عيد أم في 21 مارس سنة 1956م ومن مصر خرجت الفكرة إلى البلاد الأخرى. عند الشیعه یوم میلاد فاطمة الزهراء، بنت النبی صلی الله علیه وآله، یکون عید الام و عید النساء. هذه السنة الجمیلة قد جعلت بعد انقلاب الاسلامی فی ایران. فی مثل هذا الیوم، 20 جمادی الثانی، ولد یعطی هدیة لامه و زوج یعطی لزوجته. عادتا، یذهبون و یطعمون فی مطاعم و یهدون الزهور للنساء.
El Día de la Madre es una festividad que conmemora a las madres. Se celebra en diferentes fechas del año según el país, como se ve más abajo. Las madres frecuentemente reciben regalos ese día.

Ruka, Finland, Feb 8th, 2009, 2009
Finnish Lapland Resort of Ruka Welcomes The North Face® Ski Challenge Presented by Gore-Tex® For The Second Time In The Country Of The Flying Finns !
The North Face Ski Challenge presented by Gore-Tex continued its tour this year by going to Ruka, in the Finnish Lapland to once again admire freestyle skills of the Flying Finns. Chilly temperatures didn’t prevent 33 kids from throwing a major freestyle show and ski difficult blown snow in freeride.
If there’s a country were our eyes are always turned to the skies, it’s Finland. This year again, we were amazed at the freestyle skills participants demonstrated! Their jumps and tricks in the air attracted a fascinated crowd in spite of the polar temperatures.This year again, and even if the Finnish winter vacations hadn’t started yet, 33 kids travelled sometimes more than 1000 kilometers to Ruka to participate in this year’s edition of the ski challenge.
And temperatures didn’t rise in spite of the hot freestyle show: Järi, our snowmobile driver in the park, said: “ It’s only -22°C but with the wind chill factor, it’s more like -50°C in fact !” And on the freeride day, it got even colder with wind chilled temperatures of -60°C !
Confirmation of mature talents.
Some of the young riders participating this year were already known to us and qualified again for the final in Val Thorens to be held at the end of March. Roppe Leppänen & Antijussi Heikkinen were two of the young skiers we knew would probably do well, as they demonstrated so much talent and skills last year. Roppe Leppännen: “ I clearly came here today to win and qualify for the final again. I was third last year in Val Thorens and when you see what happened to AJ Kemppainen, the first edition winner, it motivates you to come back and try to win”. For AJ Heikkinen, he has clearly come to qualify again and go back to the Alps.
Impossible to determine winner
If no girls showed up this year to participate, the Kings category was so competitive that the judges couldn’t determine who was the strongest skier between Roppe Leppänen and Aleksi Laitinen. Along with Ville Koskela and Juha Mourujärvi, who qualified in 3rd and 4th place, they will form a team that will come to the top of the Trois Vallées end of March with legitimate ambitions. Remains for them to train in more demanding snow conditions on steeper terrain to maybe win the ultimate prize: a sponsoring contract with The North Face, Dynastar and Lange.
Record number of qualified riders !
The jury decided to qualify 11 young riders this year in Ruka, setting a new record for pre qualified riders of the event series. William Revenaz, our starter: “ The kids here are really above the field in freestyle. And given the mountain here, I can understand why. But they’ve also improved their skills in freeride. Young Anttijussi Heikkinen for instance, came to Val Thorens and discovered big mountain skiing there. This year, he won’t come back to discover only !”
The North Face Ski Challenge presented by Gore-Tex now heads west to Âre next week end (Feb 14-15), located 1300 kms from Ruka. Then the young riders will come to Chamonix on Feb 28-Mar 1 before travelling to Jasna, Slovakia ( March 7-8).
All qualified riders will then meet in Val Thorens, France on March 27-28 to determine who’ll win the ultilmate prize: a sponsoring contract with The North Face, Dynastar and Lange and become a pro rider ! More info and applications online on www.thenorthface****/skichallenge
About The Competition
The Ski Challenge idea came to life when J.P. Baralo, a former freeski team manager, realized that there was no European outlet to showcase the potential of young, undiscovered freeskiers. Baralo approached The North Face, and created a new, unique event in which unknown kids from across Europe could demonstrate their skills and have an opportunity to make a name for themselves. The North Face Ski Challenge presented by Gore-Tex is open to all European residents, boys and girls, aged 12-18 and tours Europe all winter.
