All About You ! What are you like?

My opinion on the successful work

To be a success in work, you have to work well with groups of people. At the same time, you need to have strong opinions and be able to explain your opinions clearly. Good business-people always like to make new things and try new ideas. They are very organized, and they work very long hours.

All About You ! My favorite pastimes

One of my favorite pastimes, is to be with friends and family. I love to spend time with them and just have a chance to have fun. I know that my friends will be there for me when I need them and I will always be there for them. Family also means a lot to me. I love to be at family gatherings, because it gives me a chance to see family that I might not get to see very often. We have a good time catching up on things and talking about many other things. This is one of my favorite pastimes.
My favorite pastime is playing softball. I love playing softball in summer because it is so much fun. I usually play first or third base. My favorite thing to do is bat. In the summer you can usually find me at the softball field for practice or at a softball game. This summer will be my last year playing on the 14 and under team. Softball is not only my favorite pastime it is my favorite sport.

Maracaibo "The Beloved Land of the Sun"

Maracaibo is nicknamed La Tierra del Sol Amada.
Maracaibo is a city and municipality located in northwestern Venezuela off the western coast of the Lake of Maracaibo. It is the second-largest city in the country after the national capital Caracas and the capital of Zulia state. Maracaibo has become a large metropolitan city, comprising two municipalities: to the north the municipality of Maracaibo and to the south the San Francisco municipality (established in 1995). In recent years, due to political/economic and cultural reasons, many have moved to Maracaibo from rural areas and other cities (including Caracas).

Maracaibo also boasts one of the best universities in the country, the state university. La Universidad del Zulia(LUZ) is well renowned for its excellent law and medical schools. Other major universities and schools include Universidad Rafael Belloso Chacin, (URBE), with its excellent engineering school, and Universidad Rafael Urdaneta, with one of the country's leading psychology schools.

Due to the regionalistic nature of Marabinos, they strongly support their native teams. Maracaibo, and the rest of Zulia, are represented in baseball by the Águilas del Zulia, a Venezuelan winter league team that plays in the Liga Venezolana de Béisbol Profesional,and is based in the Estadio Luis Aparicio El Grande. Regional teams include the Unión Atlético Maracaibo and the Zulia FC in football, and the Gaiteros del Zulia in basketball, a team that participates in the Liga Profesional de Baloncesto de Venezuela, whose home is the 5.000-people Pedro Elías Belisario Aponte stadium.

The city of Maracaibo is located at the denominated Maracaibo plain. It has low fertility, typical of a dry-tropical forest. It presents a great number of rivers, sewers and gorges. The city dominates the entrance to Lake Maracaibo. Maracaibo is one of the cities of Venezuela where the highest temperatures are registered. It has a semiarid climate, only attenuated by the moderating influence of the lake, its average historical temperature is 29 °C. In the past the climate of the city, as well in all the coast of the Lake Maracaibo, was unhealthy, due to the combination of high temperatures with high humidity, being a zone of importance. At the present time, the effects of urban development, and control of plagues, has almost eradicated that. The registered high temperature of the city is 41.0 °C, and the low 18.0 °C. Culture in Maracaibo is very indigenous and unique, is recognized in every state and city in Venezuela, and is very influential with its gaitas, desserts, style, living, and customs  .An interesting aspect of the city, is the humor and the musical culture of its people, the Gaita Zuliana, is a traditional christmas music  from the region.
