West River Academy's Class of 2010 included 40 graduates from all over the world. While most were in the US, we also had 2 in China, 1 in Spain, 1 in Germany, 2 in Colombia, 7 in Chile, 1 in Taiwan, 2 in Korea and 1 in Japan. The ones in the picture were the 6 who chose to come to Grand Junction, Colorado to participate in the Commencement Exercises. And what was special for me was the graduation of my youngest daughter, Rachel (to my right in the photo). Each graduate gave a short speech, some with powerpoint, movie or musical presentations. Truly, each one was a valedictorian!
GMC ACADIA / ACADIA DENALI New for 2014: Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning, standard on Denali and available on SLT-1 and SLT-2 Two charging-only USB ports on the rear of the center console for second-row use 2014 GMC ACADIA HIGHLIGHTS SAFETY, CONVENIENCE FEATURES With its reputation for comfort, performance and efficiency, GMC Acadia has remained a popular choice since it was introduced as the brand’s first crossover SUV in 2007. Its luxury-minded Denali model, which came to market in mid-2010, has widened this midsize crossover’s appeal to customers looking for a high level of style, power and functionality. In 2014, the Acadia focuses on safety with the addition of Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning, crash-avoidance systems that use a camera and sensors to help detect when the driver is getting too close to a vehicle ahead, or when the vehicle enters another lane without the use of a turn signal. The systems alert the driver with visual cues on the dashboard, as well as audible signals. They complement Side Blind Zone Alert and Cross Traffic Alert, which were added in 2013. The camera technology was recently named a “Top Ten Tech Breakthrough of 2012” by Popular Mechanics. The new model year also brings an additional convenience feature: two charging-only USB ports on the rear of the center console to power up electronics from the second row. Acadia’s lineup for 2014 includes the SLE (with SLE-1 and SLE-2 trims), the SLT (with SLT-1 and SLT-2 trims) and the Denali models, with seven- or eight-passenger configurations. A 3.6L V-6 VVT engine that uses gasoline direct injection technology powers all Acadia models, optimizing performance and fuel economy across the board. The engine is paired with Acadia’s fuel-saving six-speed automatic transmission to help give FWD models an EPA-estimated 24 mpg on the highway. The transmission controls provide quick and consistent shifts for a commanding feel behind the wheel. All-wheel drive is also available. Towing capability for the Acadia is 5,200 pounds (2,364 kg), when...

As always, we welcome any feedback or suggestions. http://www.investopedia.com/contact.aspx Table of Contents 1) Forex: Introduction 2) Forex: What Is It? 3) Forex: Reading a Quote and Understanding the Jargon 4) Forex: Benefits and Risks 5) Forex: History and Market Participants 6) Forex: Economic Theories and Data 7) Forex: Fundamental Trading Strategies 8) Forex: Technical Analysis 9) Forex: Ready To Trade? 10) Forex: The Conclusion Introduction Foreign exchange (forex or FX for short) is one of the most exciting, fast-paced markets around. Until recently, trading in the forex market had been the domain of large financial institutions, corporations, central banks, hedge funds and extremely wealthy individuals. The emergence of the internet has changed all of this, and now it is possible for average investors to buy and sell currencies easily with the click of a mouse. Daily currency fluctuations are usually very small. Most currency pairs move less than one cent per day, representing a less than 1% change in the value of the currency. This makes foreign exchange one of the least volatile financial markets around. Therefore, many speculators rely on the availability of enormous leverage to increase the value of potential movements. In the forex market, leverage can be as much as 250:1. Higher leverage can be extremely risky, but because of round-the-clock trading and deep liquidity, foreign exchange brokers have been able to make high leverage an industry standard in order to make the movements meaningful for FX traders. (Page 1 of 30) Copyright © 2010, Investopedia.com - All rights reserved. Investopedia.com – the resource for investing and personal finance education. Extreme liquidity and the availability of high leverage have helped to spur the market's rapid growth and made it the ideal place for many traders. Positions can be opened and closed within minutes or can be held for months. Currency prices are based on objective considerations of supply and demand and cannot be manipulated easily because the size of the market does not allow even the largest players, such as central banks, to move prices at will. The forex market provides plenty of opportunity for investors. However, in order to be successful, a currency trader has to understand the basics behind currency movements. The goal of this tutorial is to provide a foundation for investors or traders who are new to the currency markets. We'll cover the basics of foreign exchange, its history and the key concepts you need to understand in order to be able to participate in this market. We'll also venture into how to start trading currencies and the different types of strategies that can be employed. What Is It? The foreign exchange market is the "place" where currencies are traded. Currencies are important to most people around the world, whether they realize it or not, because currencies need to be exchanged in order to conduct foreign trade and business. If you are living in the U.S. and want to buy cheese from France, either you or the company that you buy the cheese from has to pay the French for the cheese in euros (EUR). This means that the U.S. importer would have to exchange the equivalent value of U.S. dollars (USD) into euros. The same goes for traveling. A French tourist in Egypt can't pay in euros to see the pyramids because it's not the locally accepted currency. As such, the tourist has to exchange the euros for the local currency, in this case the Egyptian pound, at the current exchange rate. The need to exchange currencies is the primary reason why the forex market is the largest, most liquid financial market in the world. It dwarfs other markets in size, even the stock market, with an average traded value of around U.S. $2,000 billion per day. (The total volume changes all the time, but as of April 2004, the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) reported that the forex market traded U.S. $1,900 billion per day.) One unique aspect of this international market is that there is no central marketplace for currency exchange. Rather, trade is conducted electronically over-the-counter (OTC), which means that all transactions occur via computer networks between traders around the world, rather than on one centralized This tutorial can be found at:

If, in addition, they can form the extraembryonic tissues of the embryo, they are described as totipotent. Watt and Driskell Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci 2010;365:155-163. 4 Origin of Stem Cells Multipotent stem cells can form all the differentiated cell types of a given tissue. In some cases, a tissue contains only one differentiated lineage and the stem cells that maintain that lineage are described as unipotent.

STATE OF TENNESSEE TENNESSEE COMMISSION ON CHILDREN AND YOUTH Andrew Johnson Tower, Ninth Floor 710 James Robertson Parkway Nashville, Tennessee 37243-0800 (615) 741-2633 (FAX) 741-5956 1-800-264-0904 TO: FROM: DATE: RE: Members of the Tennessee General Assembly and Other Readers Linda O’Neal, Executive Director January 28, 2011 Resource Mapping 2010 Report Revised As required by TCA 3703-116, on April 15, 2010, the Tennessee Commission on Children and Youth transmitted the first Resource Mapping Report to the General Assembly. We have continued to review and discuss the resource mapping information with a variety of stakeholders across Tennessee. There has been great interest in this report and the information it reveals. As a result of the diligence and persistence of Melissa Staley, TCCY resource mapping director, in January 2011, we discovered there was a major omission from the report. The Department of Education was extremely diligent in reporting its expenditures for the many programs and services it provides to Tennessee schools and Tennessee children. In fact, it provided the highest level of detail in reporting expenditures of any department. However, in the focus on programs and services, submission of the most substantial part of DOE expenditures, and indeed the most substantial overall expenditure Tennessee makes for children, funds for the Basic Education Program (BEP), were not submitted. BEP funds in FY 2007 and FY 2008 were more than $3 billion each year. Upon discovering this omission, the Department of Education immediately submitted the BEP expenditure data, and TCCY staff revised the 2010 Report to include the information. The inclusion of BEP dollars results in changes in many of the charts and graphs that are now included in this report. To the best of our knowledge, the Resource Mapping 2010 Report Revised now includes all state and federal expenditures for children in the Tennessee state budget. Collection of such a massive amount of data continues to be a very challenging process. We are grateful for the collaborative support from staff in the 25 state agencies that submit data for these reports. Data submission for the 2011 report is well underway. We look forward to providing a report in April 2011 that includes expenditures for FY 2009 and FY2010. We continue to stand ready to answer questions and appreciate feedback regarding ways we can improve this report.
