Plakias is a popular tourist resort, located 36km south of Rethymno city, at the exit of a fertile valley surrounded by high mountains and dense olive groves. Next to it empties the river Kotsifos.

One of the major growth drivers of the region is the long beachfront, known as Gialia. The main beach starts near the town and extends to the east for 1.3km, up to Cape Mouri. It is a well organized beach, with cool green waters. Along the beach there is a road, ideal for walking or cycling. Along this road there are several restaurants and hotels, while on the beach there are tamarisk trees, umbrellas, water sports, beach volley courts, snack bars, changing rooms, showers, etc.

The eastern part of the long beach is called Paligremnos. The beach is sandy and very well organized, next to hotels and restaurants. Characteristic of Paligremnos are nearby huge vertical cliffs that rise to a great height. There are caves, dug by Wehrmacht during the German Occupation. Moreover, this place is called Gonates (i.e. knees), because according to tradition, the epic hero Digenis kneeled there to drink water from a local spring. Lastly, in Paligremnos a strange phenomenon takes place on every full moon, from September to January. The moonlight is reflected in the mirror-like towering cliffs. Thus, many big squids approach the beach and locals gather them with big sticks.

The main beach of Plakias is located between Paligremnos and Plakias village. It is similarly well-organized. In its western part, near the village, the river Kotsifos empties. Therefore, the sea water temperature is low.

West of the village, between the village and the new harbour of Plakias, lies the second beach of Skinos. Skinos has many rocks and sand. Next to the village, the beach is slightly organized with umbrellas, while as you head to the west it gets rockier. Skinos is ideal for fishing and snorkeling. The road that heads to the nearby beach of Souda comes along this beach.

Crete (Greek: ?????, Kríti [‘kriti]; Ancient Greek: ?????, Kr?t?) is the largest and most populous of the Greek islands, the fifth-largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, and one of the thirteen administrative regions of Greece.

The capital and the largest city of Crete is Heraklion. It forms a significant part of the economy and cultural heritage of Greece while retaining its own local cultural traits (such as its own poetry, and music). Crete was once the center of the Minoan civilization (c. 2700–1420 BC), which is currently regarded as the earliest recorded civilization in Europe.

The island is first referred to as Kaptara in texts from the Syrian city of Mari dating from the 18th century BC, repeated later in Neo-Assyrian records and the Bible (Caphtor). It was also known in ancient Egyptian as Keftiu, strongly suggesting some form similar to both was the Minoan name for the island.

The current name of Crete is thought to be first attested in Mycenaean Greek texts written in Linear B, through the words ke-re-te (*Kr?tes; later Greek: ??????, plural of ????),[4] and ke-re-si-jo (*Kr?sijos; later Greek: ???????), "Cretan". In Ancient Greek, the name Crete (?????) first appears in Homer’s Odyssey.[8] Its etymology is unknown. One speculative proposal derives it from a hypothetical Luvian word *kursatta (cf. kursawar "island", kursattar "cutting, sliver").[9] In Latin, it became Creta.

The original Arabic name of Crete was Iqr??iš (Arabic: ??????? < (???) ??????), but after the Emirate of Crete’s establishment of its new capital at ??? ??????Rab? al-?andaq (modern Iraklion), both the city and the island became known as ?????? (Khandhax) or ???????? (Khandhakas), which gave Latin and Venetian Candia, from which French Candie and English Candy or Candia. Under Ottoman rule, in Ottoman Turkish, Crete was called Girit (????).

Toni Braxton Heat Pop Music CD Review

The exceptionally talented Pop artist Toni Braxton has released her CD entitled Heat. I am very confident and happy to announce that I believe Toni Braxton fans, and Pop fans alike will be pleased with this one. With the release of Heat Toni Braxton’s artistic excellence is on full display as Braxton has once again delivered a brilliant collection of tracks that could very well be her best work to date.

Unfortunately, it’s not everyday that I get a CD from an artist that I can just pop in and comfortably listen to from beginning to end. There is usually a song or two that I just can’t force myself to get through. Not at all the case with Heat. Every track is enjoyable and was pretty easy for me to listen to from start to finish.

Toni Braxton is one of those musicians that has the ability to just win you over with her talent. The kind of artist it’s really a treat to be able to listen to.

If you’re a Toni Braxton fan, or just a fan of Pop music this is a CD your collection simply should not be without.

While this entire album is outstanding some of my favorites are track 4 – Just Be A Man About It, track 8 – The Art Of Love, and track 12 – Never Just For A Ring

My Bonus Pick, and the one that got Sore […as in “Stuck On REpeat”] is track 1 – He Wasn’t Man Enough. Great track!

CD Track List Follows:

1. He Wasn’t Man Enough 2. Heat, The 3. Spanish Guitar 4. Just Be A Man About It – (featuring Dr. Dre) 5. Gimme Some 6. I’m Still Breathing 7. Fairy Tale 8. Art Of Love, The 9. Speaking In Tongues 10. Maybe 11. You’ve Been Wrong 12. Never Just For A Ring

Our Earth has so many beautiful places. I go out to nature to fill my soul and root myself. This photo is taken at Hakone Gardens in Saratoga, California.

We cannot continue as usual. What do you do to keep the environment sound and healthy?
– I try to ride my bicycle where possible
– I still drive a 14 year old car, I’ll likely get an all electric car when I need a new one
– I share news on renewable energies, and on the pitfall of fossil fuels

Radio Vida

Years and years pass by and the Radio is still booming. The World’s population is climbing daily. All of the people in this world and there is NOTHING to listen to on the radio! Stop, turning the dial on your radio, the answer has finally arrived.

The problem is with finding a decent radio station is that all of the radio stations now are too flooded with traffic. With so many people listening at once there’s no way you’re going to hear what you want because everyone is requesting something else to be played. This is where Radio Vida comes in. Radio Vida which is Radio Life in English, is a growing group of Spanish radio stations all over the world.

Radio Vida is a great set of stations for all listeners alike. You don’t have to be a ‘radio only’ kind of person to enjoy the music played. The number one thing that Radio Vida aims for is the happiness of the listeners. If you were to call in and request something they would be sure to get to it before they stopped playing for the night.

Of course, you don’t have to listen to a great radio station if you didn’t want to, after all it’s just that racket in the background. WRONG! Radio Vida is much more then just some music playing in the background. Radio Vida is becoming a way of life. The question is will you jump on the train when it comes your way, or will you let it pass you by?

Radio Vida has stations all over the world. Portugal, Spain, including areas in the U.S. such as California and Arizona, as well as various other places throughout the world. In some places Radio Vida has changed their programming around a bit to present the truth of gospel as its main objective.

Well, what kind of music do they play at Radio Vida? It is all Hispanic music, mixed into the Hispanic music is a portion of Pon Tu Mirada en Jesus. Also thrown into the mix at Radio Vida is El Tiempo de Dios. Now, not only is gospel music being played, but also music concerning health issues and problems. So now that you have proof that these stations are filled with everything the Hispanic community wants, tune your radio stations and enjoy the music.

Many radio stations have watched what Radio Vida is doing and are starting to follow. Stations such as, Radio Arte has begun reaching out to teens in the Hispanic community. They are the first bilingual (Spanish/English) youth-operated community station in the U.S., being in Chicago. The program was completed one hundred percent by the youth. From broadcasting to reporting, teens get the perfect dose of what they need. Well, what else do I have to tell you. Radio Vida is out there just waiting for you to grab a listen. So go to http://www.centroevangelico.org/, now and listen to one of these amazing Spanish gospel music, you will not be disappointed, that’s a promise!
