It also turned out to be cancer and now Paula is taking part in the Great Manchester Run on Sunday to raise money for the hospital that saved their lives. Paula, 46, and Ken, 55, who live with their daughters Cara, 21, and Sian, 18, in Hale Barns, Altrincham, said that there could be no gesture big enough to thank the staff at Withington's world renowned cancer hospital The Christie. Paula, who is the deputy headteacher of Springfield Primary School in Sale, added: "We can't say strongly enough how we feel about the care we received at The Christie. "They staff couldn't do enough and they saved our lives, pure and simple. "We're both in remission now and we want 2011 to be our year." Paula will be one of thousands taking part in the 10k race with fellow runners for The Christie including Shameless actor David Threlfall, pop star Shayne Ward and for Hollyoaks actor Gemma Atkinson. Money raised from the event will pay for vital cancer research, new medical equipment and extra patient services including counselling and complementary therapies.

Pirouettes are fun, showy, and prominent in classical ballet choreography as well as other dance styles. The postural plumb line is where you start, in looking at what is going to make a pirouette succeed. Firstly, can you stand with good posture? If so, can you rise up and down, firstly in a cou de pied position, on one leg, without losing your postural plumb line? If so, can you do a series of releves holding a good position, without neck or shoulder strain? If you do lose it, correct your posture, then see if you lose it going into your demi plie. Is your weight sitting back? Do you lose any placement at the hips? Do you lose any turnout? If any of the three things above occur, you need to get those fixed and forget about pirouettes until you build strength to maintain the basics of posture, turnout and a correct demi plie. You will still do your pirouettes in your ballet class, but for your daily practice routines, you need a step by step approach to get stronger. If everything is good so far, raise your leg into a retire position and check that no placement gets lost at the hips. If this occurs, you need more stretching in the hip and pelvic area. Or, perhaps you need to rearrange the tension at the hips and you will find that you can get your hips level after all. While the feeling of the spin is important and not to be lost for the sake of good technique, it is still vital that you be able to do sixteen, twenty four, and then thirty two strong releves in retire on both sides, without strain. You need a relaxed neck and shoulders to spot properly in multiple turns. Especially in pointe shoes, you need to do these repetitive releves, to see that you can stay on one spot and not travel around. If you have trouble with this, use the barre. Check your balance at the bottom of your demi plie, as well as in the releve position. Seeing where your weight wants to go tells you where the weakness, or excess tension is. To build strength is important, and to train the muscle memory properly is too. The reason why I recommend back peddling to basic exercises in order to correct or build on an exercise, is because practicing things incorrectly is a waste of time. Asking your teacher for help or getting another student to buddy with you on practicing and correcting each other, is really worth the while. It is more fun just doing turns, but technical inaccuracies will catch up with you and hold you back. Instantly, when you put on pointe shoes. On your rest day, be sure to relax, stretch out the tired and tense muscles, using a rubber ball for the tight and tender spots. Ice the sore spots for 15 minutes, two or three times a day. If you have worked so hard in ballet class or rehearsal that your legs are throbbing, lie down and stick them straight up the wall for a few minutes. It is easy to fall asleep that way. Whenever you find yourself thinking "how can I improve." just go back to the basic, slow motion movement to discover what classical ballet principle of technique is missing. Regardless of your dance style, simple ballet exercises done well, build strength. And then it is even more fun. Air Jordan 10 Retro White Old Royal Stealth,SEOUL, South Korea A cyberattack caused computer networks at major South Korean banks and top TV broadcasters to crash simultaneously Wednesday, paralyzing bank machines across the country and prompting speculation of North Korean involvement. (0500 GMT), the state run Korea Information Security Agency said, and more than seven hours later some systems were still down. Police and South Korean officials couldn't immediately determine responsibility and North Korea's state media made no immediate comments on the shutdown. But some experts suspected a cyberattack orchestrated by Pyongyang. sanctions meant to punish North Korea over its nuclear test last month. of staging a cyberattack that shut down its websites for two days last week. Loxley Pacific, the Thailand based Internet service provider, confirmed the North Korean outage but did not say what caused it. The South Korean shutdown did not affect government agencies or potential targets such as power plants or transportation systems, and there were no immediate reports that bank customers' records were compromised, but the disruption froze part of the country's commerce. Some customers were unable to use the debit or credit cards that many rely on more than cash. At one Starbucks in downtown Seoul, customers were asked to pay for their coffee in cash, and lines formed outside disabled bank machines. Shinhan Bank, a major South Korean lender, reported a two hour system shutdown, including online banking and automated teller machines. It said networks later came back online and that banking was back to normal. Shinhan said no customer records or accounts were compromised. Another big bank, Nonghyup, said its system eventually came back online. Officials didn't answer a call seeking details on the safety of customer records. Jeju Bank said some of its branches also reported network shutdowns. Computers were still down about seven hours after the shutdown began, according to the state run Korea Communications Commission, South Korea's telecom regulator. The YTN cable news channel also said the company's internal computer network was paralyzed. Footage showed workers staring at blank computer screens. KBS employees said they watched helplessly as files stored on their computers began disappearing. Last year, North Korea threatened to attack several news companies, including KBC and MBC, over their reports critical of children's' festivals in the North. "It's got to be a hacking attack," said Lim Jong in, dean of Korea University's Graduate School of Information Security. "Such simultaneous shutdowns cannot be caused by technical glitches." The Korea Information Security Agency had reported that an image of skulls and a hacking claim had popped up on some of the computers that shut down, but later said those who reported the skulls did not work for the five companies whose computers suffered massive outages. KISA was investigating the skull images as well. Federal Communications Commission. An ominous question is what other businesses, in South Korea or elsewhere, may also be in the sights of the attacker, said Barnett, who heads the cybersecurity practice at Washington law firm Venable. "This needs to be a wake up call," he said. "This can happen anywhere." An official at the Korea Communications Commission said investigators speculate that malicious code was spread from company servers that send automatic updates of security software and virus patches. LG Uplus Corp., which provides network services for the companies that suffered outages, saw no signs of a cyberattack on its networks, company spokesman Lee Jung hwan said. The South Korean military raised its cyberattack readiness level but saw no signs of cyberattacks on its networks, the Defence Ministry said. No government computers were affected, officials said. President Park Geun hye called for quick efforts to get systems back online, according to her spokeswoman, Kim Haing. The shutdown raised worries about the overall vulnerability to attacks in South Korea, a world leader in broadband and mobile Internet access. Previous hacking attacks at private companies compromised millions of people's personal data. Past malware attacks also disabled access to government agency websites and destroyed files in personal computers. and South Korean government and military networks to gather information and disrupt service. Seoul blames North Korean hackers for several cyberattacks in recent years. Pyongyang has either denied or ignored those charges. Hackers operating from IP addresses in China have also been blamed. In 2011, computer security software maker McAfee Inc. said North Korea or its sympathizers likely were responsible for a cyberattack against South Korean government and banking websites earlier that year. government Internet sites. Pyongyang denied involvement. "North Korea has almost certainly done similar attacks before," said Tim Junio, a cybersecurity fellow at Stanford University's Center for International Security and Cooperation. "Part of why this wasn't more consequential is probably because South Korea took the first major incident seriously and deployed a bunch of organizational and technical innovations to reduce response time during future North Korea attacks." "These companies have security monitoring centres getting fed info from all over Korea to help detect incidents quickly and push technical solutions," he said. "They also have formal relationships with the government and sectors within their companies dedicated to national security work, including North Korean malware."
Cheap But Real Air Jordan 10 Retro White Old Royal Stealth,Air Jordan 10 Retro Chicago Bulls Delicious dough Permanent linkI don't make pastries. Even if I did, I don't think I could ever match the skills of the pastry chefs at the Strudel House in Budapest. On a recent visit, I participated in a short hands on session working (or trying to work) strudel dough. First, our small contingent watched a professional work with a piece of dough that initially looked like a fat round plate. He stretched the dough into a thin, unbroken sheet that covered an entire tabletop of at least three feet by six feet, maybe more. We could see there were no holes because the pastry handler set it on the table, sealed it lightly around the sides with air trapped inside to create a dome of sorts. Also, it was so thin we could read a newspaper through it. The pastry chef topped half the dough with uncooked apples (adding cinnamon, sugar and bread crumbs) and the other half with cheese. He rolled the whole sheet into one long fruit and cheese filled tube, cut it into manageable pieces and baked the lot. The strudels are baked at 220C (about 430F) for 12 minutes, we were told. The chef then laid out another thick plate sized piece of dough. Two of us, working with a hostess, attempted to do what the professional had done. We stretched the rubbery dough to the dimensions of the table, but sadly, ours had a few holes and the chef wouldn't use it. Proudly, though, we could read a paper through it. The hostess said Hungarian strudel differs from the Austrian variety in that dough in the Hungarian version is thinner, like the dough used in Turkish baklava. The restaurant, which makes 15 to 20 strudels a day, also fills some with chicken paprikash, salmon and vegetables. Our lunch opened with a chicken paprikash strudel and concluded with pieces of the fruit and cheese strudels that were rolled before our eyes. Delish.

"This suffocating tax has rocketed way out of control. Years of above inflation increases have hit passengers hard, are hitting the economy hard and are impeding our recovery from the recession," Branson said.
