The Martian Bigfoot
Martian bigfoot. (I inserted a picture of the Patterson-Gimlin Bigfoot for comparison.)
According to metro.co.uk, the image was taken by NASA's Mars Explorer Spirit, but it "wasn't until space and science fiction enthusiasts became involved that the images were taken more seriously."
Here's the complete NASA image (thanks, Mongo) from which the image above was enlarged. I drew a red circle around the Bigfoot image. It's barely visible, in the far left corner. As you can see, the Martian Bigfoot is very, very small. Perhaps Littlefoot would be a better name for him.
THE LEGEND OF "THE SILBÓN"
After murdering their father, the man it was punished with a neck mandador (typical of the plain), when trying to escape it was bitten by a dog tureko, to conclude the punishment their grandfather he/she watered on their wounds great quantity of spicy pepper. The memory and mention of that happened pound to people of being attacked by this well-known wandering spirit as the silbón.
The Silbón is presented to the drunkards in somber form. Other llaneros gives him tall and thin man's form. it uses hat and it attacks the men merrymakers and drunkards, to which it sucks the navel to take them the liquor.
The tradition explains that when arriving the silbón at a house in the night hours, it discharges the sack and bill one to one the bones; if there is not who can listen to it, a member of the family dies to the dawn.
Another version says that a son that I kill his father to eat him their was "offals". The boy toñeco was raised (spoiled), it didn't respect anybody. One day he/she told to their father that wanted to eat deer viscera. Their father left hunt to please it but he/she took in returning. In view of this the boy left to look for it and when seeing that he didn't bring anything, he had not been able to hunt the deer, I kill him, I take out him the viscera and I take them to his mother so that he cooked them. As they didn't soften, the mother suspected that they were those "offals" of her husband, asking to the boy who admitted the truth.
Immediately he/she cursed it it stops a lifetime. Their brother Juan pursued him with a "mandador", one sounded him it covered of pepper and it incited him the dog "tureco" that it pursues him until the end of the world and it bites him the checks

All energy production and consumption has environmental impacts. Energy related emissions contribute to pollution of air, water and soil while also posing risks to human health, nature and biodiversity. Sustainable energy policies aim to reduce these threats, while ensuring the security of supply and the competitiveness of the EU industries.
The EU has made a commitment to integrate environmental concerns into all relevant policy areas, including energy. This work is an ongoing process requiring efforts in a number of areas including setting ambitious targets for increasing energy efficiency and share of renewable energies in overall energy mix and for alternative fuels, as well as ensuring the internal energy market by separating energy production from distribution.
Comparison of the energy related effects on environment and human health from different energy sources is often not straightforward and energy modelling is thus needed to guide the policy decisions in selection of the relevant policy measures and the choice between different energy sources.
Climate change is currently the most serious threat to the natural environment and human health with potentially devastating economic costs to the societies worldwide. Since 80% of the greenhouse gases originate from heat and power production as well as from transport, one of the main energy-related policy drivers in the EU is the reduction of greenhouse gases (GHG) at their sources.
DG Environment is in the pivotal role in drafting policies for tackling climate change through the European Climate Change Programme (ECCP) and policy initiatives such as greenhouse gas trading (Emissions Trading Scheme - ETS), limiting air pollution through National Emission Ceilings (NEC) directive and developing common rules for Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS). DG Environment had also in a key role in setting up the Johannesburg Renewable Energy Coalition composed of governments that are committed to achieving the commitments on renewable energy made at the World Summit for Sustainable Development in Johannesburg (South-Africa) in 2002.

Hi, dear! My name is Gabriela Fuenmayor, but you can call me Gaby.
I'm from Maracaibo, I live in Maracaibo, in Urb. Lago Azul.
I'm 23 yeras old and study Informatic Engineering at Urbe. My favorite subjects is web page.
I love music, dancing, sing, surfing the net, studying English, talking on the phone with my friends, I enjoy chocolate, my family, my country, I like cinema.
I hate onions, smoking, listening to champeta and hard rock , getting up early on the weekend, violence, injustice, and washing the dishes.
My dream is to travel to Europe, visit The Eiffel Tower in Paris. Of course, I want to graduate from Engineering School and be a good engineer. I also want to learn to speak English, French, and Italian. I’d love to work in an important company and buy a house and car, get married and start a family.
About English, I love to learn new languages. I think English is very important. I listen to music. It’s a good exercise. I also chat on the internet and have friends in many countries. I can understand English, but I need to practice more, because difficult is speaking. I need to practice more. I hope I can make a lot of friends and practice speaking in this class
