Ukrainian Lifestyle

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

Speaking about modern Ukrainian customs and traditions it is necessary to stress that the Ukrainians are proud of their colorful folk culture. They love good food and drink and have a zest for life.

Most Ukrainian middle-class and lower class urban families live in flat in multi-storied buildings; only rather rich people can afford to build cottages either inside or outside the city.

Ukrainians have a deep love of the land. Many families have small country houses, called „dacha“. They are able to grow just about anything in their neat gardens, orchards, and homesteads. Some people grow food only for their own personal consumption. They spend time canning vegetables and making compote from various fruits during the summer in order to make it through the long cold winters. They always have something in their houses to serve guests.

A modern average Ukrainian family has two parents and usually one or two children. At the same time there is a growing number of one-parent families usually headed by a woman rearing a child. Like in many other countries, there are quite a lot of young unmarried people living together and sharing a household. Bringing up a child in Ukraine is very costly now; that is why many couples decided to have only one child, or even no children. Children tend to live with there parents long after they finish school. Sometimes children have to rely on their parents in financial matters as the unemployment rate among the young is very high. A newly married couple often lives with either of their parents because they have no money to buy or to rent a house or a flat of their own. Often one or both grandparents live with their children and help take care of small children. Grandparents play a great role in raising children in Ukraine.

In the village families are usually larger, and the whole family works on the farm (or a patch of land they have) together. Most parents who live in the country want their children to get a higher education, so they send them to study to big cities. After 5 years of studies, the children get used to the city way of life and seldom go home.

In their struggle for survival people become less dependent on each other within families. But still parents think it is important to teach their children daily skills and basic values of life. The result of a resent nationwide survey showed that the most important values parents want to teach their children are honestly, common sense, purposefulness, responsibility, good manners and obedience to parents. Adults believe children should be brought up to expect that they will have to struggle to succeed.

Like most other people, Ukrainians like holidays and merrymaking. They usually try to cook many tasty dishes and invite a lot of friends and relatives to their places. Another thing Ukrainians love to do is talk (while strolling, in cafes and restaurants, or at home over a cup of tea or coffee or other drinks). Conversation tends to be light, relaxing, humorous, and sometimes philosophical. Many Ukrainians enjoy picnics in the wood or somewhere the water at almost any time of year. Picnics often involve shashlik or barbequed meat, homemade salads, and sometimes alcohol. Ukrainians love to sit around fires at night and snack, drink, and sing songs to a guitar.

Popular outdoor sports in Ukraine are soccer, volleyball, badminton, table tennis, and hiking (walking in the forest). Fitness clubs have appeared all over the place. Yoga and martial arts are quite popular as well. Mountain climbing and rock climbing clubs can be found. Scuba diving, yachting, and even golf have recently become available. Increasingly popular in Ukraine are all sorts of extreme sports (bungee jumping, river rafting, downhill mountain biking, spelunking, etc.), and, more generally, all forms of active recreation (hiking, biking, boating, horseback riding, skiing, etc.).

Not everyone will do the things we’ve described above. Some Ukrainians‘ culture will strike you as incomprehensible and intolerable, while others‘ behavior and attitudes will seem rational and compatible with your own.

Bloons the Original – Interesting Levels – 8, 13, 23 and 30

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

Level 8 (Holy Moley)

14 balloons are required to complete the level. Another first, here we have a „wall“ with three brown colored bricks. Your first dart needs to take out one of those; just hitting one with the dart will destroy it. Now all you have to do is fire the other dart through the hole in the wall and it should strike a pin bloon and pop all of the others. A fairly easy level to fully complete.

Level 13 (Reservoir)

25 balloons required to complete the level. This level will test your skills at correctly judging both power and angle to make accurate arcs. Ideally with the first dart, have it enter through the furthest hole in the wall to hit the pin bloons. If that is proving too hard you can have it enter through the second hole from the right which is wider and take out many of the bloons through that one. The two hardest shots are the first, to hit the pin bloons, and the one required to get through the first hole to clear the vertical group closest to the monkey. A score in the 90% range is common on this level.

Level 23 (Ouchie)

35 balloons required to complete the level. Possibly the hardest level we have encountered so far. We also encounter, for the first time, „mine bloons“, along with the old favorite, ice bloons. You will see a row of mine bloons at the top, and a row of ice bloons on the third row down. The arc you achieve is the most important thing. It is practically impossible to shoot the dart and miss all the mines and all the ice bloons. However, if you get the arc just right, you can get away with popping some mines, and/or ice ones but you need to have enough force to hit the pin ones. You have a rubber wall to the right and a solid wall to the left. By aiming correctly you can send the dart through the top couple of layers, deflect it off the rubber wall directly into the pin bloons. A 70% score, or thereabouts, is about normal for this level.

Level 30 (Ice Bounce)

28 balloons required to complete the level. After the brief respite of an easy level we return to a more complex one. There are two ways to accomplish this. On the first shot try to hit the top ice bloon, also getting as many as possible of the ones below that one. Make sure there is at least one of the frozen bloons to use to bounce off with the next shot, or just go ahead and reset the level. Bounce off the frozen bloon and into the pack of bombs which will explode all those. The alternate method which is sometimes preferred is to shoot as hard as possible at the left side of the lower rubber wall and the vibration will set off the bomb bloons ands destroy all those to the left of the rubber wall. On the subsequent shot you can take out as many of the remaining bloons as possible while avoiding the ice ones. Aim for a score around 90% and you will complete the level.

Online Learning Glossary – Real Meanings For Real People

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

Have you been looking into online learning as a training or education medium for your workplace or classroom? Or are you wondering about a possible career in the design and development of online learning, but you are not sure what all the terms mean?

When you're new to a field, it's important to get the terms right so you can understand what others are saying and so you can about this topic. This article provides an introduction and glossary to the terms associated with online learning. After making this list, even I was surprised at how many terms there were!

AUDIO CONFERENCING : Audio conferencing reference to a connection between three or more locations that involves a voice-only connection. This can be done via telephone or via the computer. When the audio conference is done between computers over the Internet, it uses a technology known as VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol).

ASYNCHRONOUS LEARNING : When learners participate in an online learning course at different times, it is known as asynchronous learning. This may also be called eLearning or web-based training (WBT). Asynchronous learning allows learners to go through a course at their own pace and on their own schedule.

BLENDED LEARNING : Blended learning is an instructional approach that includes a combination of online and in-person learning activities. For example, students can complete online self-paced assignments by a certain date and then meet on-site or online for additional learning activities.

COMPUTER-BASED TRAINING (CBT) : CBT referees to any type of course that runs on a computer, either on a CD, on a person's hard drive or on the Internet. The distinguishing point is that computer-based training does not involve an instructor or facilitator who is physically present. Now that most computer-based training occurs via the Internet, the term is used infrequently. More common terms are online learning, eLearning and Web-based training (WBT).

COURSEWARE: Courseware refers to any instructional software that is delivered on a computer.

DISTANCE EDUCATION or DISTANCE LEARNING : Distance Education / Learning occurs when students and their instructors are in different geographical locations and the instruction occurs on an electronic device, such as a computer or mobile phone. The learning can occur in a synchronous environment, in which all participants are connected at the same time or in an asynchronous environment, when participants are engaged in learning at different times.

eLEARNING: eLearning (short for electronic learning) is an umbrella term that referes to all types of training, education and instruction that occurs on a digital medium, like a computer or mobile phone.

HYBRID LEARNING: See blended learning.

INFORMAL LEARNING: Informal learning occurs when people have a need to know something. They set their own learning objectives and acquire knowledge, skills and information in their own ways. This could be through asking questions, observing experts, practicing and conversing. It's the kind of natural learning humans do outside of a structured environment.

INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGN: Instructional design involves the identification of the knowledge, information, and skill gaps of a particular group of people and creating or selecting learning experiences that close this gap. Instructional designers base their learning decisions on cognitive psychology, instructional theory and best practices.

INSTRUCTOR LED TRAINING (ILT): ILT typically refers to providing instruction in a classroom environment where the instructor and learners are together at the same time and in the same physical location.

INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGNER: An instructional designer practices the craft and science of instructional design. This person identifies the needs of a targeted audience and determines the best approaches for meeting the audience's needs. It could involve designing and writing online learning courses as well as writing the manuals needed for Instructor-Led Training. Some instructional designers also create graphics and use authoring systems to produce online courses.

INTERACTIVE MULTIMEDIA: Interactive multimedia allows learners to provide input to an online course and receive feedback as a result of the input. The input may consist of a mouse click or drag, gestures, voice commands, touching an input screen, text entry and live interactions with connected participants.

MOBILE LEARNING: Learning that takes place on a hand-held device, such as a mobile phone, that can take place anytime and anywhere.

MULTIMEDIA: Multimedia reflect to the presentation of information and instruction through a combination of graphics, audio, text, or video. Multimedia instruction is often interactive.

ONLINE LEARNING: The term online learning is often used synonymously with eLearning. It is an umbrella term that includes any type of learning implemented on a computer and usually over the Internet.

SELF-PACED LEARNING: Self-paced learning returns to the type of instruction that allows a person to control the flow of the courseware. It implies the learning environment is asynchronous.

SOCIAL MEDIA LEARNING: Social media learning refer to the acquisition of information and skills through social technologies that allow people to collaborate, converse, provide input, create content and share it. Examples of social media learning can occur through online social networking platforms, blogs and microblogs (like Twitter), online talk radio and wikis.

STREAMING MEDIA: Streaming media referers to video and audio that is downloaded to a computer from the Internet as a continuous stream of data and is played as it reaches the destination computer.

SYNCHRONOUS LEARNING: When learners participate in an online learning course at the same time but in different locations, it is known as synchronous learning. Synchronous learning allows learners to interact with the instructor and other participants. This is done through software that creates a virtual classroom.

VIDEO CONFERENCING: Video conferencing refer to the use of video technology (both hardware and software) to create a virtual meeting between two or more people in different physical locations. Participants can see and hear each other through this technology.

VIRTUAL CLASSROOM: The virtual classroom reflects to a digital classroom learning environment that takes place over the Internet rather than in a physical classroom. It is implemented through software that allows an instructor and students to interact.

WEBINAR: A webinar is a seminar or workshop in which the facilitator and participants view the same screen at the same time. Usually the webinar has an audio component that the facilitator controls and functionality that allows participants to chat by entering text, answering guns, raising their hands and asking questions.

WEB-BASED TRAINING (WBT): WBT reiterates all types of digital instruction in which the learning material is presented via the Internet.

Hollywood Or Bollywood – Which is Superior?

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

There was a time when a multi-stared film with item numbers created spark and did a good business at the box office. But at present, things are changing very fast and the Bollywood is adopting western style and techniques which is quite evident in some of the recent movies like Kambakkht Ishq, Love Aaj Kal, and Blue, etc. Hollywood stars and celebrities such as supermodels, pop singers, or famous actors, are entering the Bollywood film industry. Although critics may criticize Bollywood against Hollywood saying that the total earnings of Bollywood in 2006 were just half of the earnings that only one Hollywood studio, Walt Disney made in 2006. But the fact is that Hollywood is mesmerized by Bollywood. Bollywood has a great deal to present to Hollywood and similarly Hollywood also influences Bollywood.

Which one is superior, Hollywood or Bollywood? The discussion is endless. Although Hollywood is quite ahead of Bollywood in terms of revenue, Bollywood's influence in the world film industry is winning new heights. Hollywood's earnings do not depend on ticket sales only. It has adopted the proven 'franchise-formula' in which a big part of the revenue or income comes from other sources such as TV networks, magazines, home-videos, etc. No doubt, Bollywood is also considering this aspect to promote its business. But revenue is not the only factor that one should take notice of, there are other aspects also to be considered, such as story, music, song-and-dance sequences, photography, technology, etc.

The main difference between Hollywood and Bollywood commercial movies is that song-and-dance sequences is an essential feature of Indian films. Professional play-back singers sing songs which are lip-matched by movie characters played by actors and actresses. While, there is no such thing like song-and dance in Hollywood. Therefore, they are attracted towards Bollywood. Bollywood films are a good source of entertainment presenting anything and everything, quite like a Santa Claus gift bag, whereas Hollywood films focus more at the cinematic knowledge.

But, things are changing very fast these days. A time may come when there would be no difference in Bollywood and Hollywood. Particularly after the success achieved by 'Slum-dog Millionaire', can we expect more movies where Bollywood come together with Hollywood? In the coming times, you will see Barbara Mori paired with Hrithik Roshan in an Indian film 'Kites', and likewise, an Indian actor Anupam Kher will act in Hollywood's top director Woody Allen's film. After winning Oscar awards for an Indian film Slum-dog Millionaire, the difference between Bollywood and Hollywood has reduced and it is becoming a joint venture. May be, one day we see Sylvester Stallone dancing around trees in an Indian film and Hrithik Roshan playing James Bond in a Hollywood film.
