Most people tend to think of vacations as a summer time tradition. Those who have a love for skiing, however, know winter is the optimal time to take advantage of this particular sport. Although many of those who participate are experienced, it’s ideal for beginners too. Regardless of your skill and knowledge of skiing, it’s always best to ski in a location that accommodates to skiing for safety reasons. At Lake Tahoe resort Squaw Valley you will find just that.
The resort offers something for everyone of every age. The Squaw Kids Adventure Camp is a definite plus to guests with children. This activity will allow you to do things that you want to do during your stay. As for the children, there will be plenty of fun filled activities to keep them busy from mini golf and disc golf to crafts and yoga. This program is designed in two groups ranging from 5 to 7 years old and from 8 to 13 years old. For those who really wish to relax, the Trilogy Spa is a great way to start. From aromatherapy, pedicures, or a full body Swedish style message you won’t be disappointed.
Obviously, one of the main attractions is Lake Tahoe. You will find this place does not lack when it comes to outdoor activities. However, some of the other activities for those wishing to explore range from hiking and walking trails to wall climbing and skiing. If you’re looking to lounge around the resort, you may be interested in the billiard lounge, hot tubs, or swimming pools.
As with any vacation or trip it’s always important to consider what’s available pertaining to the season you’ll be making the trip. For example, some activities are open in summer, but not the winter and vice versa. Activities such as dog sledding or snowmobiles are available only during the winter season. Other activities such as hot tubs, spas, and aerial trams are open in the summer as well. Although all kitchens are fully equipped for those wishing to cook themselves, there are a variety of restaurants in the area offering diverse European food.
Lodging is an important aspect of any vacation. Squaw Valley Resort puts it’s guest first by offering heated parking, full bathrooms to all rooms, and 24 hour desk service. Rooms also include fire places and balconies that really add to the atmosphere of being near Lake Tahoe. It’s strongly recommended that guest take the aerial tram during their visit. It’s the best way to get a great view of the whole area and is available throughout the year regardless of season.
At 39 years old, Thor Halvorssen, founder of the Human Rights Foundation not only believes in protecting the human rights of others, he lives and breathes it. Thor Halvorssen has gained some notoriety while working as a representative for the Human Rights Foundation, appearing on Fox News and other media outlets, promoting his cause and explaining his beliefs. He works hard, getting up early and going to bed late and despite his long hours, still finds time to moonlight as a filmmaker, but he never stops fighting for the protection of basic human rights.
Halvorssen’s dedication to the cause and work ethic mean that no one wants to be on his bad side. And he doesn’t let political affiliations get in the way of his work either. He fights against all dictators, not just conservatives. He has been known to speak against Kim Jung Il, the dictator and leader of North Korea, a hard line dictator, as well as the current president of Venezuela, who is a socialist. He does not discriminate when it comes to his cause.
Halvorssen is not afraid to get down and dirty for his cause either. On a visit to Ho Chi Minh City in 2010 to interview the leader of the Unified Buddhist Church of Vietnam, which is a banned church, he was detained along with the cameraman, who eventually managed to slip out. Halvorssen was not allowed to leave until he was able to convince officials that he was a Buddhist speaker, despite actually being a lapsed Catholic.
It is actions like this that make Halvorsson a formidable opponent. He is not afraid to stand up for what he believes in, and he doesn’t back down. Halvorssen’s beliefs run deep. He understands just how difficult it is to live under a government that doesn’t respect human rights. He is half Venezuelan on his mom’s side and spent much of his younger years in the tumultuous country. He stood in the bread lines, and even had close family members who spent time as political prisoners. When it comes to working hard for human rights, Halvorssen is a man who should be taken seriously.
When blogger Emily McClure decided to challenge WEN hair by Chaz, she was not sure what to expect at first. She notes at the beginning of her seven-day trial use of their Cleansing Conditioner that she has fine, thin hair hoping for a bouncier, healthier shine.
The first difference Emily noted was the amount of product recommended for each use. Following the directions, she used significantly more shampoo than she normally would use in her hair. She was skeptical of this but very please with the outcome. She reported that Cleansing Conditioner immediately made her hair feel fuller and thicker. It also seemed less likely to “shed” as she washed. See, http://www.wen.com/before-after.html.
The WEN hair Total Beauty product line was created by Chaz Dean, known for cutting edge work in hair care and products. He designed the line specifically to keep all types of hair healthy regardless of the challenges the hair faced throughout the day.
Emily certainly put that through the test. During her week-long trial, she used the Wen hair shampoo and conditioner on days that were very long and involved traveling. The Sephora marketed product continued to provide great vibrancy and life for her hair despite situations that would normally leave the best hair limp and fading.

Among the many philanthropists in the United States is Dick DeVos, an American businessman who has a passion for giving back to the people within his community. As a wealthy individual, Dick DeVos has always supported many organizations that support the arts, civic issues, economics, as well as education. Dick DeVos found his wealth and success while working for his family’s company at Amway Corporation. Through his passion for business, Dick DeVos was able to develop the company even further and was even able to expand the company’s international sales. By the time Dick DeVos left his position at Amway Corporation, his company had grown exponentially in overall sales.
As a supporter for the arts, Dick DeVos has recently donated a large amount to the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. This is a world renowned building that is well known for hosting some of the most prestigious events as well as showcasing some of the world’s most talented composers, musicals, operas, as well as plays. Ever since this site was built in 1971, it has since then truly become the center for the arts. Every individual who walks into the Kennedy Center is not only awed by the beauty of the building, but is also awed by the spectacular performances of each show.
As a result of the Kennedy Center’s copious amount of success, the Kennedy Center is now looking for a chance to expand even more to offer new sites within the building for both the visitors as well as for the performers. The leaders of this organization have announced a new project that began in 2013 and has hoped to raise close to $150 million in funding. This new project will use the money to create three more pavilions within the center as well as office spaces, dining rooms, and even rehearsal rooms for the performers.
Though the initial amount to raise for this new expansion was much less, the funds have been pouring in by patrons who love what the Kennedy Center has done for the revival of the arts. The initial project called for $100 million to go to the overall expansion and for $25 million to go into the initiated programs that will coincide with the expansion. As a large contributor to this project, Dick DeVos hopes to be there for the unveiling of the expansion to see what the future holds in store for the arts revival.

23 Layers is the premiere event planning business in New York City catering not just to the city but to places far beyond as well. Due to their incredible turnout they are always booked throughout the city and have been able to expand their reach to cater to other clients throughout the US. Just from one look at what they can do it is easy to see why they are taking the lead in party planning for celebrations large and small.
Jessica Boskoff and Sarah Freedman are the two leading ladies that make up the 23 Layers team. It is in part their many years of experience and in another part their shining personalities that make it such a joy to plan a party or event with 23 Layers. Though the two women have the capabilities to plan an unrivaled large corporate event, they can also plan a equally impressive small gathering like the country farm party they have created for one year old Teddy’s birthday.
To set the scene, the guests were greeted at Teddy’s birthday with a red and white checkered table cloth enrobing a just so high table so the one year old friends of Teddy could sit around it and enjoy their lovely snacks. 23 Layers not only sets the stage but also caters the parties they plan, so it is to be expected that the guests of Teddy’s party were munching on snacks not only mouthwateringly delicious but also decoratively whimsical.
Adults and children were able to sink their teeth into glossy candy coated apples, as crisp in their style as they were to the bite. Also gracing the farm table dessert bar were other apple themed desserts including mini apple pies, and a voluminous jar of chilled apple cider to sip on.
Embracing form and function, 23 Layers designed a perfect cup for the one year old friends to drink the amber cider from. Lidded mason jar cups, befitted with a swirling red and white striped straw were the perfect cup for the one year olds to drink from without spilling their juice.
