Women's Nike Air Pegasus 26
A shoe is an item of footgear produced at first to protect the human being foot and later, additionally, as an item of decoration in itself. The foot contains more bones than any other single part of the body, and has evolved over hundreds of 1000`s of years in relation to vastly varied terrain and climatic terms. Together with the proprioceptive system, it is what makes balance and ambulation possible.
Until recent years, shoes were not worn by most of the world's population—largely because they could not afford them. Only with the advent of mass production, making them available for the 1st time the cheap flip-flop-type sandal, for example, has shoe-wearing become predominant.
But guess what? A new revolution has begun:

L.A calls for return of stolen heritage 04/16/2010
In the event, which discussed proposals to change the UNESCO convention on the recovery of stolen goods illicitly, participates Spain, Peru, Guatemala, Bolivia, Ecuador, Mexico, Chile and Honduras
A score of countries with great archaeological legacies, including several American, discussed @ a conference opened in Cairo how to protect and regain their stolen heritage.
"We need to get together and work together to identify and regain our stolen heritage," said the secretary general of the Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA), Zahi Hawas, the startup of the First International Conference on Cooperation for the security and restoration of cultural heritage.
The event, which will be discussed tomorrow proposals to change the UNESCO convention on the recovery of stolen goods illegally, with the participation of
Guatemala, Peru, Spain, Bolivia, Ecuador, Honduras, Chile and Mexico.
Also participating nations like
Libya, Iraq, Cyprus, India, USA, Greece, China, Syria, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Italy and Nigeria.
Hawas said that the cooperation with scientific foundations and museums around the world is important to retrieve the stolen goods and fighting archaeological looting.
"If museums refuse to buy stolen goods, trade can stop," Hawas said that Egypt has explicated that although recovery agreements with "95 percent of world museums, there are still 5 per cent" who have not subscribed .
The Nile nation 8 years ago launched a cause through which recovered about 5 thousand archaeological pieces that had left the nation illicitly.
However, still litigating for the return of as many parts as the Rosetta Stone or the bust of Nefertiti, currently exhibited in museums in Berlin and London respectively.
Hawas once again demanded the restitution of these works, and also used to highlight the "excellent cooperation" with countries like Switzerland or Spain.
Besides Egypt, the other participating countries will publish tomorrow a list of items considered were illegally removed and whose refund claim to various international institutions.
In the case of Peru, its ambassador to Egypt, Liliana Chinese, said that his nation be included in the final document the request for restitution of a collection of pieces from the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu.
"These pieces were transferred temporarily to the University of Yale (USA) and now this institution refuses to take them back," said Chino.
In addition, they request more than 100 textiles belonging to the pre-Inca Paracas culture, found in Gothenburg (Sweden), and the treasure of 500 thousand pieces of silver and gold coins minted in Peru rescued from the bottom of the Odyssey by the company in March and whose return to Spain last year issued U.S. justice.
"Last year alone recover thousands of stolen items and we struggled, but Peru is a country with so much material that is very difficult to control," said Chino.
Also noted the need to reform the UNESCO Convention of 1970 which prohibits the illegal trade in cultural property.
For the archaeologist and deputy minister of Culture and Sports of Guatemala, Hector Escobedo, are needed "more international agreements to prevent the entry into other countries of parts removed illegally."
"Guatemala is seeking to retrieve some of the monuments from Piedras Negras, one of the most important Maya sites, and a wooden lintels chicozapote who left the country in the nineteenth century and is on exhibit in Switzerland," said Escobedo.
For his part, Ambassador of Ecuador in Egypt, Edwin Johnson, complained that his country "part of the list of those who suffered the plundering", particularly pre-Columbian inheritance and colonial art from Quito, which was developed during the century XVII.
100`s of works, according to Johnson, they were taken lawlessly from temples, churches and even museum premises, therefore urged to strengthen border controls.
The theft of altarpieces of churches located in rural areas is as well a "recurring problem in Bolivia, according to the charge d'affaires of Bulgaria in Egypt, Raul Pals.
In the case of Spain, Jesus Manal, deputy director of the Historical Inheritance Protection of the Spanish Ministry of Culture, explained that its activity is concentrated on fighting the depredations, robberies in rural areas and control traffic of archaeological artifacts.

The Mexican magazine Proceso, which wrote an interview with a leader of the Sinaloa cartel, said the distribution of the specimens was hampered by intimidation in the state of the country's northwest.
A spokeswoman for the magazine publisher enounced about all copies of the interview with Ismael "El Mayo" Zambada was bought by 2 men.
The interview had generated much argument.
Process, one of the leading news magazines of Mexico, said the great purchase was intended to prevent the Sinaloa population had access to copies.
Margarita Carreon, mind of sales process, said the local distributor of the magazine was addressed on Sunday by two men who bought more than 1,700 individuals who had not yet made the point of sale.
Carreon told El Noticiero News he believed the main cause for bullying was not the story of "El Mayo", but an article accompanying the publication in which it was linked to drug kingpin with a local politician in Sinaloa.
The interview came as a surprise in Mexico, because the press rarely has access to the leaders of drug cartels.
In the story, Zambada spoke of his fear of being captured by authorities and criticized the government's strategy to tackle drug-related fury that has left over 18,000 dead since 2006.
He also said he frequently talks on the telephone with the top leader of the poster and Mexico's most wanted man, Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman.
"Scoop or Scandal?
The interview, conducted at an undisclosed location, was conducted by veteran Mexican journalist Julio Scherer Garcia, who has been criticized by some for providing a platform to speak Zambada.
Others believe that the scoop is one of the huge journalistic achievements of recent times in Mexico.
In any case, many think that the obvious intimidation in Sinaloa is a stark reminder of the pressure on the press in the fields most affected by violence linked to drug trafficking.
And above all, so the disputation about the interview appears to confirm is that Mexico, including the media, is still learning to accept his main problem with the drug cartels.

Technology companies and privacy groups in the Usa have called for a review of Internet privacy laws because they say the government has too much admission to private data online.
Google, eBay, Microsoft, Intel, AT & T, among others, launched the coalition of the Due Process Digital (Digital Due Process) that seeks to update the Privacy Act 1986, passed before the explosion of Internet use.
The coalition claims for court orders issued before the e-mails and text messages are delivered to the competent authorities.
The idea is to protect more information and data stored online tracking of mobile phones, said Maggie Shiels, Technology reporter.
A law of another epoch
The alliance looks for to rewrite the Privacy Act Electronic Communications (ECPA, for its acronym in English), 1986 - which establishes what type of digital private info the government can access and how you can get.
"Not surprisingly, a law written in 1986 has not provided protection to the privacy you need 25 years later," said Richard Salgado, senior counsel for Google for information security.
The alliance, which includes more than 30 fellow members from the world of industry, privacy and the academy, noted that the ECPA is a "confusing patchwork of rules that have been seen in contradictory ways by the courts."
For example, the agencies of law enforcement can access detailed info from emails, instant messages and other info stored online through simple citations, not guaranteed by a court order.
The alliance recommends the establishment of an order before the internet providers deliver the info online, as is required for a physical search of a suspect's computer.
Need to similar security before the cell phone companies to deliver tracking information of their customers.
It as well seeks to determine that the courts any real-time information such as text and instant messaging-is relevant to an investigation.
"The law has cleared that the same rule implements to emails and documents stored with a service provider, while at the same time flexible sufficient to meet the needs of law enforcement," said Jim Dempsey, the Center for Democracy and Technology.
Alliance members said they already had speaks with the White House, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI, for its acronym in English) and the Departments of Justice and Commerce.
They recognized that it was potential that the authorities charged with enforcing the law to resist any change and that certainly would be a long debate before the Congress to act.
"We're not waiting to be enacted this year, but it's time to start the dialogue," said Dempsey.
Sen. Patrick Leahy, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said he planned to hold audiences on "much-needed upgrades" to the law of privacy.

Scientists working on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC, by its initials in English), almost ambitious physics experiment in earth, started on Tuesday a test that looks for to recreate the terms of beginning of the universe after the Big-Bang-and discover new aspects of its intrinsic nature
The investigators affirmed the clash of 2 beams of subatomic particles at a rate slightly below that of light. The collision energy generated a record seven trillion volts.
The experimentation tries to find hints to some of the big questions that still have no answer in particle physics.
The LHC, whose construction price was U.S. $ 9,000 million, eventually started to produce results 18 months after their operation then, having suffered some breaking.
The experiment of the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN for its French acronym) was retarded several hours due to a problem with the beams.
In search of the Higgs boson
During the experiment, scientists will look for signs of the Higgs boson, a subatomic particle also called the "God particle" that is crucial for the current understanding of physics. The theory is that it provides mass to everything in the universe.
Although it is expected their existence, scientists have never seen, said Matt McGrath, science specialist for El Noticiero, from Geneva.
In this Swiss city, in a circular tunnel 27 km long, hundred meters below the Franco-Swiss border, is the LHC.
McGrath explains that researchers have been working on increasing the energy contained in small bundles running through the tunnel 11,000 times per second.
The plan is to cross the beams at various points in the circuit to create collisions with record amounts of energy.
Years of analysis
Guido Tonelli, spokesman for the scientists working in one of the sensing elements that will follow the results of subatomic particles, said "the business of small beams of particles collide at high energies is not easy."
"Getting match has been likened to throwing needles through the Atlantic Ocean and make collide halfway. The researchers trust will happen. And it might shed light on some very deep and difficult questions of physics," adds .
The LHC, Tonelli says, "can at long last start to shed light on these issues, but do not expect fast answers. The vast quantities of data generated by the colliding beam takes years of analysis before drawing final conclusions.
Known as "God's machine", the largest particle accelerator in the world had tripled in March, the most intense energy ever achieved. This happened during the preparations for the current experiment in research of the secrets of the universe.

Global warming dispute resolved 03/25/2010
A small island in the Bay of Bengal, who for years cost the subject of a regional challenge between India and Bangladesh, gone away below the waves, say Indian scientists.
The abandoned soil southern of the river Hariabhanga was known to Indians as New Moore Island, while the Bangladeshis Talpatti called South Island.
New satellite images record that the whole island is below water, according to the School of Oceanographic Reports in Calcutta.
Scientists add that other nearby islands could also vanish as the rising sea level.
Swallowed by the ocean
The Noticiero correspondent in New Delhi, Mick Me describes that there was never a lasting settlement on the island now defunct, which-even in its heyday, was never more than 2 meters above sea level.
In the old times, however, the regional contravention led to the dispatch of Indian Naval Forces ships and the temporal deployment of a contingent of Border Security Forces of that nation.
"What these two countries could not achieve after years of talks has been solved by global warming," said Prof Sugata Hazra, School of Oceanographic Studies of Jadavpur University in Calcutta.
Whoever wants to travel to her now, he said, need to resolve what to do in a submarine.
Professor Hazra told that their studies indicate that water levels in this part of the Bay of Bengal have risen much quicker in the last decade than they had in the previous 15 years.
He predicts that within the next decade other islands in the Sundarbans delta area will continue to New Moore, or Talpatti South, beneath the waves.
"We will increasingly displaced persons in the Sunderbans as more surface is submerged islands," the scientist.
As Well in Mexico
A similar case happened with an island in the Gulf of Mexico that is described in cartographical documents of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
Red Island is seen in different maps of the time, though not always in the same place, and in later hundreds there have been several sightings.
The island could change the limits of the territorial waters of Mexico in an area rich in oil.
However, never been able to make the exact position of the island, or affirm their existence and, if in fact existed, as was that disappeared.
Mexican Foreign Minister Patricia Espinosa, Secretary of State and U.S., Hillary Clinton, on Tuesday reaffirmed the divided up responsibility of their countries in battling the organized crime and drug trafficking, after the festivity in Mexico City for a encounter of Upper Level Group of the Merida Initiative.
Hillary C. said in a joint conference with her Mexican counterpart that her country assumes responsibility for its part in the drug war and recognized that the demand for drugs in the United States and illicit trafficking of weapons fire wildness of the cartels in Mexico.
"We know the demand for drugs and weapons purchases made to facilitate the violence in Mexico," said Clinton.
The U.S. Secretary of State also said that her country supports "strongly bold campaign launched by Mexican President Felipe Calderón, in the fight against drug traffickers, and recognized the sacrifice of the men and women of the armed forces and police forces.
She as well thanked the support of Mexico after ten days ago killing three people, including 2 U.S. nationals-linked to the United States consulate in Ciudad Juarez.
"Our hearts are broken by the murders in Juarez," said Clinton, adding: "The posters are bringing the war to civil society and it threatens economic evolution.
Hillary traveled to Mexico followed by a group of protection officers senior administration of Barack Obama, among which are the Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano.

They create "cloak" of invisibility in 3-D 03/22/2010
Scientists have created the first device to make an invisible object in three dimensions.
The "mantle", whose details are published in the journal Science, can hide an object using light with a wavelength close to that of light visible to mankind.
The aircraft had been previously developed to hide objects of light traveling in the same direction, but from any other angle the object remained visible to humans.
Now managed to make the invisible object in three dimensions
Scientists express Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany, this is an initial but important step to humanity toward true invisibility cloaks.
According to the Noticiero said Professor Tolga Ergin, who led the study, the mantle is based on the concept that it is possible to "transform" the space with a material.
Profesor Tolga Ergin and his crew designed a photonic metamaterial that can influence the behavior of light rays.
"You can think of any type of processing you want to perform and create a material that simulates the transformation," explains the scientist.
The base design was proposed by Professor John Pendry of Imperial College London, who also participated in the study.
"He proposed the theoretical design of an object hidden behind a package and have that lump go away," explains Professor Ergin.
"It's like a carpet in a mirror. When you hide an object under a package and it appears in the mirror and see a distortion in the reflected image," he says.
"If we put the mantle on the lump it does bend light so that the distortion disappears. And you have the impression that you are seeing is a mirror plane," he adds.
The strategy, he adds the scientist, is to change the speed and direction in which light travels through the material, or change the refractive index of the material.
The researchers managed to do this using a polymer made of tiny glass rods.
"By changing the thickness of the rods can be changed by the air ratio polymer" explains Dr. Ergin.
The Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, said U.S. and Israel is unbreakable ties yet, despite the friction arising from the issue of Jewish settlements. However, he noted that both Israel and the Palestinians must show their commitment to the peace process.
Last week, USA vice president, Joe Biden, has condemned an Israeli plan to build more houses in the settlements, the government announcement of Biden as Benjamin Netanyahu visited the country.
The issue raised tensions in Jerusalem, where on Tuesday there were violent clashes between Israeli and the Palestinians police.
Clinton said that among nations always had disagreements and, in the case of U.S. and the Israel had already expressed their displeasure.
"We do not agree at all with any of our international partners. And with respect to the announcement that was made when Vice President Joe Biden was there in Jerusalem we expressed our dismay and disappointment".
Demands to Israel
The Middle East special envoy for the USA , George Mitchell, postponed his visit to the region Tuesday as part of the growing tensions between Washington and the government of Israel on Jewish settlements.
Mitchell had agreed a meeting with President of Israel Shimon Peres to discuss issues related to peace talks with the Palestinians.
Hillary Clinton said that Senator Mitchell would return to the region.
"We are committed to achieving a two state solution ... That's the goal. But I think we'll see what happens in the coming weeks, and we are very interested in Senator Mitchell's return to the region and the proximity talks begin .
The Noticiero correspondent in Jerusalem, Petter Sams, says the United States has expressed confidence that the indirect talks between Israelis and Palestinians are carried out.
However, before George Mitchell appears, USA wants to hear Israel's formal response to a series of demands put to him last Friday.
Sign in these is the cancellation of plans to build 1.600 new homes in disputed territory in East Jerusalem.
For his part, Netanyahu has rejected the imposition of limits on the expansion of settlements, saying his government has every right to build in those areas.
Between a Rock and a Hard
The Noticiero correspondent says that Israeli Prime Minister is caught between a rock and a hard place.
If Netanyahu gives budge, would face the right wing of his government and his credibility would be questioned. But if they make concessions, it would be very hard to see how the peace talks, backed by USA power and prestige-can take place.
The lack of progress in negotiations is a factor that has ignited the feeling in the Palestinian villages, one is called by some officials that the people defending the Haram al-Sharif or Temple Mount.
On Tuesday, hundreds of them clashed with Israeli police in East Jerusalem in protest against the new Jewish settlements and the reopening of a synagogue.
Palestinians threw stones and burned tires while police responded with stun grenades as the disturbances spread to different parts.
"Day of Wrath"
Violence flared in several areas, including
Shu'fat refugee camp, Qalandia, Wadi al-Juozas, al-Eisaweyah, Silwan, Ras al-Amud and near the al-Aqsa mosque.
Israeli police reported that 5,000 troops had been deployed throughout the city to control the situation.
The reopening of the synagogue, which according Hurva was destroyed in the Israeli bombing of the Jordanian forces for more than six decades, has also inflamed tensions
The Palestinian militant group Hamas said on Tuesday a "day of rage" against the measure.
Meanwhile, a spokesman for the Fatah movement of President of the Palestinian National Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, declared: "The synagogue will be the prelude to violence and extremist religious fanaticism."
