Bungee jumping (or bungy jumping) is the sport of jumping from a tall structure while connected to a large rubber band. The tall structure is usually a fixed object, such as a building, bridge, or crane; but it is also possible to jump from a movable object, such as a hot-air-balloon or a helicopter, that has the ability to hover over one spot on the ground; fixed-wing aircraft are clearly unsuitable because they only stay aloft when moving rapidly forward. The intense thrill comes as much from the free-falls as from the rebounds When the person jumps, the cord stretches to absorb the energy of the fall, then the jumper flies upwards again as the cord snaps back. The jumper oscillates up and down until all the energy is used up.

http://tinyurl.com/TheAlternEnergy Eco-friendliness and cost-efficiency are two MAJOR benefits of owning a home wind turbine. As these turbines harness the natural power of the wind, the absence of any chemical gasses is a WONDERFUL thing about these power-generating devices, making our Earth a much cleaner play to live.The home wind turbine performs it's job of creating electricity by channeling wind into generator. From atop a tall tower, three large "fan" blades attach to a rotor, which turns to power the generator. Much like a weather vain, the rotor of this turbine is equipped with a tail-fin to continually position it in the direction of the wind. Commonly, the generator is a electric motor. This motor has coils which circle around powerful magnets, thereby creating a charge of electricity. Power cells (think giant rechargeable batteries) accumulates energy which is then transformed into electricity by an inverter to be utilized throughout your residency. Home wind turbine are a favorite in the world of alternative power-generating devices due to vast improvements in their superior motor technology. The overall height of your system will be contingent on wind conditions in your region. In areas with light to moderate winds, a very tall structure is needed. If the area you live in is prone to high winds, such as on the coast, the structure does not have to be as tall. Wind Turbines for the Home - Home Wind Turbine

I don't take any credit for these videos; they are merely uploaded for viewing pleasure. However, there is a reason to behind uploading this which is among the signs of the Hour mentioned by the Noble Messenger of Allah in the well-known hadith of Gabriel in Sahih al-Bukhari is "when the destitute camel herds compete in building tall structures." Another version in al-Bukhari has: "when the barefoot and the naked are the heads of the people." In Muslim: "you shall see the barefoot, naked, indigent shepherds compete in building tall structures." Another version in Muslim says: "when the naked and barefoot are the top leaders of the people." A third version in Muslim has: "when you see that the barefoot and naked, the deaf and dumb are the kings of the earth." Wa Sadaqa Rasool Allah Salla Lahu Alihi Wasalam.

The Circus is a festival that is held at the Church Grounds on the 22nd day of every season. It's hosted by Theodore, once the Mayor of Flower Bud Village (in Harvest Moon: Magical Melody) and now apparently the Ringmaster of his own traveling circus act! For his first performance in Harmonica Town, his three main attractions go missing somewhere on the island and he can't put on a full show. Theodore gives you the recipes to each of the lost animals' favorite foods, and you have to go find them using your Animal Whistle and coax them to rejoin the circus. Eunice the Giraffe likes tall structures, so you can find her behind the Lighthouse in Harmonica Town. You'll need to bake her some Good Herb Fish. I suggest using one herb and FOUR fish in the Oven - instead of just one fish - to increase your chances of getting a grade of at least "good" for the finished dish rather than "decent." Trunks the Elephant likes trees, so you can find him in the small indentation of trees right outside of Fugue Forest (in Flute Fields). You'll need to prepare him some Bread. Humphrey the Hippo likes swampy places, so you can find him in the boggy area deep inside Fugue Forest, right around the Witch's house. You'll need to bake him a Vegetable Pizza. You'd better start collecting ingredients early: aside from a Pie Crust and Cheese (which can be purchased), you'll need a Potato (Spring), a Tomato (Summer), and a Bell Pepper (Fall). I missed the Potato in my first Spring and had to wait until my second year to get it! At the end of a completed show, you get to see the animals march around the Church Grounds... I'm pretty sure this is the "WAKUWAKU ANIMAL MARCH" that the Japanese game was named for. ^^ (Which is kind of weird, since it seems that there are a lot more important parts to this game... Although this is pretty cool.) Too bad I didn't have my Camera to take pictures of it like Theodore suggested! You know, once you complete the show, you really miss out on something. When some of the main animals are still missing, Theodore has a duck act fill in for them, and I must say they're pretty hilarious to watch for the approximately two seconds that they take the stage. xD It's too bad they're no longer part of the show. They'll always only be backup! *sigh* But, hey, don't you just love the pig!? xP It totally needs to have his own act in the show. That flower-snorting trick he does is pretty talented. He looks just like the pig from HM:MM, except less frustratingly dislikable now that there are no truffles to find. He also looks like the promo plushie that was given out for the preorder of HM: Sunshine Islands. I wonder why they didn't give that plushie for this game instead. Oh! The secret of the Animal Whistle when you blow it without any animals around (which works only after Theodore tells you) is that you can call on an animal to give you a free ride to another area of the island! Like, you can blow it in the middle of Flute Fields, choose you want to go to Harmonica Town, and the giraffe will appear and ride you there. Cool, huh? Finally, I apologize for the rather shaky filming. We got the scene during the daytime, and what I was seeing on the camera's preview screen seemed to show most of the words really blurry because of the light, so I kept trying to adjust. ^^; Sorry.
