skate sesh 02a Skateistan

THE Afghan Skate School.  Skateistan is the fist skateboarding school in Afghanistan that is dedicated and designed to teach both males and females.  The focus isn’t going to be on just skateboarding lessons, the focus is to also teach skateboard project management, life skills, English, and to empower leadership in Afghan youth, where the youth has interest.

The first project is an indoor skate park in Kabul, with both indoor and outdoor sections.  Created by Oliver Percovich(director), Sharna Nolan(advisor), and Travis Beard(logistics), upon setting boards down in Kabul, they were swamped by kids just dying to learn, begging to teach them how to skate.  So they began to.  Read more about their story here.  And if you are interested in helping out in some way, they have a list of ways to do so.  I’m so inspired by their hard work to help, educate, and break down barriers.

    Howdy, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam comments? If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can advise? I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any assistance is very much appreciated.

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your thoughts? I mean, what you say is important and everything. But its got no punch, no pop! Maybe if you added a pic or two, a video? You could have such a more powerful blog if you let people SEE what youre talking about instead of just reading it.

    The beauty of these blogging engines and CMS platforms is the lack of limitations and ease of manipulation that allows developers to implement rich content and ‘skin’ the site in such a way that with very little effort one would never notice what it is making the site tick all without limiting content and effectiveness.

    What I wouldnt give to learn how you got your design to be so amazing! I mean it. Besides the blog just being awesome, this page is too sweet! Its not too flashy. It doesnt do too much with colours and things and the videos you use are perfect for this topic! Really, awesome blog.

    I guess you have produced some rather fascinating points. Not as well many ppl would actually think about this the direction you just did. I am truly impressed that there is so much about this subject that has been revealed and you made it so nicely, with so considerably class. Excellent one, man! Very fantastic things right here.

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
