Nevadans hold their nose in this race

HENDERSON, NEV. – The knock on ugg outlet the front door elicited the annoyed yapping of an unseen dog, followed by the appearance of a gray-haired man busily eating chips from a bag. His callers were two union workers, canvassing the neighborhood on behalf of Democrats, especially Sen. Harry Reid.

The man said that he knew Reid — and that Reid was an idiot. So was his Republican opponent, Sharron Angle. In fact, said the man, a retired steelworker named Mario Mari, he might very well choose a third option: the phantom candidate known as None of the Above.

“This country is going down,” Mari said before closing the door to a bleak Nevada landscape, where jobs are few and foreclosures many.

This is the up-for-grabs Third Congressional District, the most populous in Nevada and the most contested in this state’s contentious Senate race, sprawling across the dry terrain to form a kind of martini glass around the olive of downtown Las Vegas. It is here in this packed suburban stretch of terra cotta roofs and crushed-rock yards that the battle for the country’s direction is being waged.

The two candidates could not be more ideologically different. But in these last frantic days of an extremely tight and unpleasant campaign, one with implications for the balance of power in Washington, they are united by the same problem: The voters of Nevada do not particularly like either of them.

“More people in Nevada dislike these candidates than like them,” said Ryan Erwin, a Republican consultant in Las Vegas. As a result, he said, “It’s going to be about which side is going to persuade voters that the other candidate is worse.”

On one side, the incumbent of two dozen years: Reid, 70, the Senate majority leader, a close ally of President Obama and, behind the scenes, a flinty old-school Nevadan. But if a UGG Bailey Button Boots microphone appears, he assumes the persona of a wan undertaker whose own pulse needs to be checked.

On the other side, the challenger from out of nowhere: Angle, 61, an anti-Obama Tea Party standard-bearer. A former schoolteacher, state legislator and competitive weight lifter, she has choice words for Washington and curious words for the rest of the country, as when she suggested that Islamic religious law had taken hold in two American communities. But if a microphone appears, she begins to play hide-and-seek: She hides, reporters seek.

Although Angle usually flees microphones, she speaks clearly through her campaign commercials, which question the source of Reid’s wealth and portray him as a calcified Obama toady who all but invites thuggish undocumented immigrants to your family’s Thanksgiving.

In their own ways, then, both candidates are asking the same plaintive question in this close race: What are you thinking, Nevada?

Some Republicans fear losing a powerful ally in Washington — no matter that his name is Reid — at a time when Nevada is in precarious economic shape. And Angle’s relationship with Republicans in Washington is complicated. She eyes them warily, while they fret that their overt help might offend her Tea Party supporters.

Even so, Angle is not above accepting the help of the Republican establishment, whether by receiving significant financial support from, say, Sen. Jim DeMint of South Carolina or promoting an UGG Coquette Slipper event with Sen. John McCain of Arizona. She melds the inside with the outside, as when, during a recent appearance with Newt Gingrich, she told her supporters that she wanted to cut any federal spending not provided for in the Constitution.

Being herself

Angle’s candor caused advisers to suggest that she lie low in these last days, so low that reporters have relied on the Twitter messages of a Democrat dressed as a chicken to track Angle’s whereabouts.

But Angle’s outlandish comments and harsh commercials — juxtaposing menacing dark-skinned men with anxious white people — have not affected her ability to raise and spend money. From July 1 to Oct. 13, her campaign spent $16.9 million, well more than the $11.2 million spent by the Reid campaign.

Well aware that polls show Angle slightly ahead, Reid has been forced to shed his dour Washington persona and stump like a challenger.

Life on the water

The Mekong Delta has many floating villages on the Chau Doc and Tien rivers. Passing An Giang Province’s Chau Doc Town and the My Thuan Bridge, tourists see many long, narrow houses.
People raise fish under their homes in submerged hardwood cages covered with stainless steel nets. Hundreds of such houses are concentrated together, creating floating villages on the rivers.
Visiting these houses and studying the life of local residents can be intriguing. Tourists can stay in these houses for a few days to experience life on the water. During such a homestay, tourists are separated from life on the land. They must take a boat to visit nearby houses.
In the floating houses, tourists will find themselves in an environment with plenty of wind and fresh air. Tourists from cities will feel relaxed when hearing the babbling of water instead of the din of vehicles and construction sites.
Most residents here make a living from aquaculture and fishing. Visitors staying at the floating houses can learn how to feed and care for the fish to ensure a bumper harvest. They can see how the feed is processed. Throwing feed into the water and seeing thousands of fishes wave their tails to compete for the food is particularly fun.
Visitors can also join the host’s family to collect waterferns and weeds from the river to use as fish food. After a hard day’s work, guests can take a meal with the family. The meal is sometimes simple but fun, thanks to the family’s merry atmosphere and hospitality.
These floating villages are unique to the Mekong Delta and capture some of the bustle of life on the river. Visiting such a village can be rewarding for the tourist and the villagers, who supplement their fish raising business with income from offering homestays.

Angkor Wat – Laos

Angkor Wat (or Angkor Vat), is a temple complex at Angkor, Cambodia, built for the king Suryavarman II in the early 12th century as his state temple and capital city. As the best-preserved temple at the site, it is the only one to have remained a significant religious centre since its foundation-first Hindu, dedicated to Vishnu, then Buddhist.
Send to your friends Print

* The temple is the epitome of the high classical style of Khmer architecture. It has become a symbol of Cambodia, appearing on its national flag, and it is the country’s prime attraction for visitors.
* Angkor Wat combines two basic plans of Khmer temple architecture: the temple mountain and the later galleried temple, based on early South Indian Hindu architecture, with key features such as the Jagati. It is designed to represent Mount Meru, home of the devas in Hindu mythology: within a moat and an outer wall 3.6 kilometres (2.2 mi) long are three rectangular galleries, each raised above the next. At the centre of the temple stands a quincunx of towers. Unlike most Angkorian temples, Angkor Wat is oriented to the west; scholars are divided as to the significance of this. The temple is admired for the grandeur and harmony of the architecture, its extensive bas-reliefs and for the numerous devatas (guardian spirits) adorning its walls.
* The modern name, Angkor Wat, means “City Temple”: Angkor is a vernacular form of the word nokor which comes from the Sanskrit word nagara meaning capital. wat is the Khmer word for temple. Prior to this time the temple was known as Preah Pisnulok, after the posthumous title of its founder, Suryavarman II

Angkor Wat today

* This model of Angkor Wat is designed to give tourists an overview of the site. In the foreground is depicted the cruciform terrace which lies in front of the central structure.The Archaeological Survey of India carried out restoration work on the temple between 1986 and 1992. Since the 1990s, Angkor Wat has seen continued conservation efforts and a massive increase in tourism. The temple is part of the Angkor World Heritage Site, established in 1992, which has provided some funding and has encouraged the Cambodian government to protect the site. The German Apsara Conservation Project (GACP) is working to protect the devatas and other bas-reliefs which decorate the temple from damage. The organisation’s survey found that around 20% of the devatas were in very poor condition, mainly because of natural erosion and deterioration of the stone but in part also due to earlier restoration efforts. Other work involves the repair of collapsed sections of the structure, and prevention of further collapse: the west facade of the upper level, for example, has been buttressed by scaffolding since 2002, while a Japanese team completed restoration of the north library of the outer enclosure in 2005. World Monuments Fund began work on the Churning of the Sea of Milk Gallery in 2008.

No Credit Car Loans – Tips for Financing Your Car with Zero Credit History

Thinking as how to get better interest rates than what is being offered to you especially when you have no credit score to bail you out? Getting car loans for no credit is not an impossible work, but a tedious task to undertake. You have a disadvantage on which you have to work to make it your strength by some means.

One of the initial steps will be to find as many lenders as possible. And I am not talking of financial institutions or banks because most of them will not like to deal with you. The reason is simple – you have no credit rating. Not having credit rating is not a crime, it just increases the risk. So the traditional financial institutions are afraid to take that risk as it involves an uncertainty of default on loan. Hence we are aiming at those institutions, banks, credit unions, lenders and dealers who are offering the no credit vehicle loan services.

These lenders are willing to take the risk and so they expect a reward. They will offer no credit auto loan at a higher rate of interest than the usual loans. Are you hesitant about the no credit automobile loan after seeing the rates? Do not be alarmed because you have to keep in mind that they are practically taking the risk to finance regardless of your credit history. When you come across such high rates, do not get upset. Instead use your negotiation skills. You can actually bring down the higher rates of the interest offered by the lender by showing your positive points such as your income or paying down payment.

In no credit auto loans, collateral plays an important role. In car financing, the car is part of your collateral. The lenders who are offering no credit auto loan may ask you to put down additional collateral and sometimes ask for a co-signer. The additional collateral should be such that it covers the value of the loan and its interest. They trend to ask for additional collateral comes from the conception that the value of the car depreciate with time. The collateral can be anything from a house, land or another vehicle you may have.

However, it might be that you do not possess collateral. Even then you can avail no credit vehicle loan if you are employed and have regular source of income. Your employment history, amount of income, investments made, etc will come into forefront. Lenders may actually go through the process of checking this information to satisfy them. Your annual salary for the previous year will be looked into because your annual income will be one of the deciding factors. You will have to keep your patience and go through all the paper work if you want to secure no credit car loans.

Once your paper work is over and the no credit auto loan gets approved, visit the dealer of your choice to get that dream car of yours.

Popularity: The popularity gained by the credit unions over the last decade is due to the low interest rates and discounts offered by them. Even when you are surrounded by the various attractive offers, the advantages of the union is hard to ignore. The accessibility factor has also contributed to its growing image. You can seek information online or over the telephone. You can also walk to the nearest branch and talk to the representative of the credit union.

Availability: Availing a loan from a credit union is not difficult. You can get in touch with the credit union if you are an existing member of any of them. You can get your credit score verified from any of the professionals or credit bureaus or dealers. However, if you have gained a membership to the credit union, then seek the help of the experts of these unions. Their knowledge and professional services are of immense help in finding accuracy of the scores. It is important to know your financial standing accurately because it gives you the power of negotiation.

Procedure: The procedure to get the bad credit car loans approved is marked with routine rounds of the union office.
