Farzana is our new subscriber. She wrote an article about Yachting in Caribbean and now want to share some good information about Caribbean and Yachting in Caribbean with us. She says, the Caribbean is a region consisting of the Caribbean Sea, its islands (most of which enclose the sea), and the surrounding coasts. The region is located southeast of the Gulf of Mexico and North America, east of Central America, and to the north of South America.
She more writes, she visited Caribbean on holidays and had great time on sunny beaches & crystal clear waters. One thing that Farzana loved about Caribbean is yachting, she love these life long memories. They traveled and stayed on a luxury yacht. That yacht was so large and so luxurious that you can barely tell it apart from cruise liners. There really is no average price when it comes to yachts; their sizes, designs, and amenities vary so widely that their price ranges are vast. A top-of-the-line yacht can sell for as high as $60 million or more, and the least expensive yachts will still run in the hundreds of thousands. The bigger and more expensive yachts are often owned by companies for throwing parties, entertaining clients, or rewarding successful executives with luxury trips.
What exactly is it about a yacht, other than its size, that so enraptures people? For one thing, yachts are like floating mansions, or at the very least, very nice floating homes. For example, an upper-end yacht can have a living room, family room, several bedrooms, a den, office, library, bar, party room, and even a theater room. When riding on one of these, only the view from the windows, going out on deck, or the occasional rocking would betray the fact that you were actually on a boat.
Though it is true that most people, even those who are fairly successful, cannot afford a yacht, that doesn’t mean that that they can never have a chance to ride on one or maybe even pilot one. Fortunately, for those who are not blessed with enough disposable income to purchase their own yachts, these luxury cruisers can be rented by the hour, by the day, by the week, or for even longer. Many people will rent a yacht for cruising in the ocean or on a lake for a few days and consider it a complete vacation.
Sara has completed her studies from National College of Arts and now working on sculpture art. Sara is working in different media’s from marble to bronze. Has created some marble sculptures with unique ideas but Sara’s favorite is metal sculptress (bronze sculptures). She sent this article about Metal sculpture through email. She writes, Metal is inert and has no life of its own. As a sculptor, who shapes metal gives it form and meaning – in other words she gives it life.
Meal can cut, textured, shaped, welded and colored. Using modern fabrication methods, an artist’s creativity is limited only by his imagination. Metal sculpture is one of the oldest forms of art known. While the first sculptures were created from stone, once man learned to use and shape metal sculpting with this material soon followed. While sculpting from stone and metal follow to completely opposing processes, the end result is, in both cases, a work of art. The sculptor using stone starts with a block of it and removes all the material that is not part of the image he is trying to create. When everything not required is gone, what remains is the sculpture. When working with metal the sculptor starts with nothing. He must find the metals he needs, shape them and join them together to form what he wants. If he is creating a molded metal work of art, he needs to create the mold into which the liquid metal is poured and from which the cooled hard material will take its shape.
Metal sculpture comes in all sizes from a one inch statue of a Pixie to a ten plus foot tall sculpture of an Amazon. Metal sculpture need not be realistic. Surreal creations using wired shapes and things found in a junk yard or at the back of a garage can be combined into great works of art. These is also almost no limit to the materials that can be used for metal sculpture. Any metal that can be cast, joined or shaped – which with today’s technology is nearly everything – can be used for creating meal sculptures.
And these works of art no not need to be only decorative. Metal sculpture can be designed or modified for practical applications. A sculpture with a flat top may be used as a table. One which is slim and tall maybe converted into a lamp. A small hollow one can be converted into a decorative flower pot. Unlike stone sculpture which are fragile in nature, metal is strong and if the design permits, any number of practical applications are possible.

Madiha Mirza send this article through our contact forum. Mahiha writes, she is a business degree student in Germany. Madiha’s parents are from Hyderabad. Madiha has aim to get a career in business administration.
Madhia Mirza tell us about our studies, like many other college courses, business classes tend to be lectures. However, rather than just listening and taking notes, students are given case studies, and asked to analyze actual business problems. You must come up with solutions, and present and defend your ideas to professors and classmates. Working on these cases will develop your problem-solving skills and the ability to think analytically. You will defend ideas logically and learn how to challenge others. Hands-on learning as provided through case studies give business majors experience with problems and situations that managers face in real life. In addition, business majors gain valuable technological skills as they learn to work with spreadsheet programs, database packages, and other programs for conducting statistical analysis, preparing financial projections, and carrying out market research.
A Masters in business administration degree or MBA allows a student to obtain valuable information regarding how businesses are run, how companies can grow and expand in addition to learning possible international and global marketing strategies. Nothing is a substitute for real life experience, however learning possible scenarios and practicing them with classmates can help an MBA candidate to become more prepared for the real business world. The MBA is not a strictly theoretical degree – it will leave you in possession of skills you need to make sound, professional business decisions.
