A pair of AlpacasAlpaca - the new fashion

How to produce Alpaca fleece

The fleece is swaddled from a coil into a rope and then undone again for a few times, so that the fleece doesn’t matt. This rope is then washed or soaked for many hours. After that, the fleece is washed in warm water and pressed with some shampoo or Perwoll. Very famous Designers like Armani work with the expensive fleece.
 

Alpaca fleece is natural fibres

There are two breeds of Alpacas, the Suri and the Huacaya. Suri Alpaca fleece is better to weave, because it is soft, aurable, silky and spongy. If an Alpaca is very old, the fleece will be harder. With the Suri Alpaca fleece people produce blankets, sweaters, hats, gloves, scarves and socks.

Where the alpaca fleece is famous

Alpaca fleece is very famous in Bolivia, northern Chile and Peru. These are the places where the fleece is made.

Taekwondo - a Korean martial art

Taekwondo is a Korean martial art. It combines combat and self-defense techniques with sport and exercise. Taekwondo is an Olympic event since 2000. The Taekwondo training generally includes a system of blocks, kicks, punches and open-hand strikes and may also include take-downs or sweeps and throws.

The oldest Korean martial art was an amalgamation of unarmed combat styles developed by the three rival Kingdoms of Goguryeo, Silla and Baekje. The name Taekwondo may be loosely translated as “the way of the foot and hand”. Early progenitors of Taekwondo who were able to study in Japan were exposed to Japanese martial arts, including karate, judo and kendo, while others were exposed to the martial arts of China and Manchuria, as well as to the indigenous Korean martial art of taekkyeon.

In 1952 at the height of Korean War, there was a martial arts exhibition, where Nam Tae Hi smashed 13 roof tiles with a punch. After the demonstration the President of Korea decided to introduce the martial arts to the Korean army. In the early 1960s, Taekwondo made its debut worldwide. Since 2000, Taekwondo has been one of the only two Asian martial arts included in the Olympic games.

taekwondo belts

Today many people have a black belt, for example Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but it isn`t easy to get a black belt, because you have to get other belts before. At Taekwondo tests you have to show techniques. Gibon Yeonseup is also known an “Elementary school”. In this discipline you practise single movements and techniques without an opponent. Ilbo Daeryeon is a short fight where one of the two athletes attack the other one with a punch and the other one has to react. Pumsae is a a fixed sequence of moves.  In the discipline Hosinsul you have to defend yourself against one or several unarmed or armed opponents. The part Sparring is a form of training common to many combat sports. It is essentially a relatively “free form” fighting with enough rules and agreements to make injuries unlikely. In any sparring match, precautions of some sort must be taken to protect the participants. The level of contact is disputed, lighter contact may lead to less injuries, but hard contact may improve inviduals for competitions or self-defense. Finally the last part of the test is the Gyopka. At the Gyopka you have to break a wooden board with a hand or a foot technique.

Paranormal Powers

In our article we write about paranormal powers or short: "PSI-phenomena" We spent a long time on this topic. We read that some people had special powers.

psi1

Paranormal dreams

If people often write down their dreams and tell them to each other if they both want, it can happen that they get paranormal dreams. They can often see the same little things in their dreams.
Two scientists had a connection like this and it was very strong! One of the persons sent a card to the other one. The other person dreamed it one night before. He also saw details about how the card looked like. The two scientists said that every person can get it.

Your own "dreambook"
If you want to analyse your dreams like the two scientists, you have to remember lots of things that happened in the dream and write them down. If you don't remember your dreams, concentrate on your thoughts after you wake up. It's best to take a notebook with you, so you can draw or write things down which you didn't remember after you woke up.
IMPORTANT: You must write down EVERY little detail and it's best if you tell it to a friend.

psi2

"Metal power"
There are protocols about people who can change the form of metal since the late 18th century. In the year 1879 a child had changed the form of a spoon - ONLY WITH TOUGHTS!
More and more reports aboute the phenomenon reached the scientists. In 1972 there again was a person who can change the form of metal. His name is Uri Geller. He showed his talent for the first time on TV. In 4 years Geller was in experiments in 17 different labs.  Dr. George Owen from "New Horizons Research Foundation" in Toronto explained that Geller has real paranormal powers. After Uri's first show, many children got "PSI-powers".

The 18-year-old Matthew Manning changed the form of metal in front of 21 scientists (only with toughts of course). He had unknown brainwaves. Prof.  J.B. Hasted started a long time experiment and made some tests with children. He saw that the  PKMB* is stronger if the kids are happy. He said: "Everyone has this power - sometimes stronger, sometimes weaker."

*(in German) Psychokinetisches Metallbiegen.

How do you get "PSI-power"

If you want "PSI - power", you'll need good concentration and you really have to want it. You have to control your power and be careful. You also have be quiet and go "inside yourself" with your toughts. You have to get connection with an object but it takes a long time to get this power and it's really hard to find it. Don't give up. It's going to come.

The History of Spaceflight

The first rocket which reached space, an altitude of 189 km, was the German V-2 rocket on a test-flight in June 1944, but it wasn't a human spaceflight. In October 1957 the soviet Union launched the sattelite Sputnik 1 to orbit the Earth. The first manned rocket, Vostok 1, was launched on 12 April 1961 in Russia. The Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin orbited around the Earth and after the flight he was a national hero.
