Perro fiel – Shakira letra

Tú me confundes, no sé qué hacer
Yo lo que quiero es pasarla bien
Yo tengo miedo de que me guste
Y que vaya a enloquecer
Si eso pasa yo seguiré
Contigo aquí como un perro fiel
Yo tengo miedo de que me guste
Y que vaya a enloquecer. Letra Shakira – Perro fiel
Aquí estás
Ya no puedes detenerte
¿Dónde vas? Te hablo en serio mai, no estoy jugando
Tanto tiempo pasa y nada
Estas ganas no me aguanto
Y aunque tú me esquives, yo te sigo deseando
Dicen que tú eres peligrosa
No le hago caso a esas cosas
Dime qué está pasando
Me tienes como un loco, soy un loco enamorado, eh
Quiero saber cuánto me vas a insistir
Y hasta dónde llegarías por mí
Siento mucho la espera
Pero valdrá la pena cuando te esté besando
De la manera que te mueves así
Yo te lo juro me voy a derretir
Tú sabes que soy buena
Por más que yo te esquive me sigues deseando. Si estoy loco por tenerte
Cómo lo iba a saber
Que te vería otra vez.(perro fiel)
Tú me confundes, no sé qué hacer
Yo lo que quiero es pasarla bien
Yo tengo miedo de que me guste
Y que vaya a enloquecer
Si eso pasa yo seguiré
Contigo aquí como un perro fiel
Yo tengo miedo de que me guste
Y que vaya a enloquecer.
Tú me confundes, no sé qué hacer
Yo lo que quiero es pasarla bien
Yo tengo miedo de que me guste
Y que vaya a enloquecer
Si eso pasa yo seguiré
Contigo aquí como un perro fiel
Yo tengo miedo de que me guste
Y que vaya a enloquecer. Puedes pedir lo que quieras de mí
Yo haría lo que fuera para ti
Siento mucho la espera
Pero valdrá la pena cuando te esté besando
Yo estoy seguro que estoy hecho pa’ ti
Yo te lo juro no te haré sufrir
Como te dije nena versuri-lyrics.info
Por más que tú me esquives, te sigo deseando. Enloque-que-quecer
Aquí estás
Ya no puedes detenerte
¿Dónde vas? Enloque-que-quecer
Yo no pido nada extraordinario
Solo un hombre de verdad
Que se tire por mí al barro
Que cambie las bombillas o hasta que me lave el carro
Quiero un tipo atento y cariñoso
Pero que no sea muy celoso
Que en la calle sea un príncipe
Pero que en mi cama sea salvaje y peligroso. Si estoy loco por tenerteee. Shakira letras

Your song – Rita Ora lyrics

No fear but I think I’m falling
I’m not proud
But I’m usually the type of girl that would hit and run
No risk so I think I’m all in versuri-lyrics.info
When I kiss your lips, feel my heartbeat thump. Lyrics Rita Ora – Your song
I woke up with a fear this morning
But I can taste you on the tip of my tongue
Alarm without no warning
You’re by my side and we’ve got smoke in our lungs.(your song)
Last night we were way up, kissing in the back of the cab
And then you say “love, baby, let’s go back to my flat”
And when we wake up, never had a feeling like that
I got a reason, so man, put that record on again. I’m in love, I’m in love, I’m in love
Yeah, you know your song’s got me feeling like I’m. I don’t want to hear sad songs anymore
I only want to hear love songs
I found my heart up in this place tonight
Don’t want to sing mad songs anymore
Only want to sing your sooong
Cause your song’s got me feeling like I’m.
Rita Ora lyrics
Video song I’m in love, I’m in love, I’m in love
I’m in love, I’m in love, I’m in love
I’m in love, I’m in love, I’m in love
Yeah, you know your song’s got me feeling like I’m. And now we’re way up, dancing on the roof of the house
And then we make love, right there on your best friend’s couch
And then you say “love, this is what it’s all about”
So keep on kissing my mouth and put that record on again. I’m in love, I’m in love, I’m in love
I’m in love, I’m in love, I’m in love
I’m in love, I’m in love, I’m in love
Yeah, you know your song’s got me feeling like I’mmm. I don’t want to hear sad songs anymore
I only want to hear love songs
I found my heart up in this place tonight
Don’t want to sing mad songs anymore
Only want to sing your sooong
Cause your song’s got me feeling like I’m. I don’t want to hear sad songs anymore
I only want to hear love songs

Take it or leaf it? What to do with the autumn fall

Ann Smith collects some 40 wheelbarrow loads of oak leaves for her garden each autumn.
He said people should instead reuse the leaves on their garden, take them to a green waste recycling centre or put them in their green bin (if they live in a suburb that has one). “It’s beautiful weather in Canberra in autumn; give the gym membership away and start raking,” Mr Williams said. The leaves collected by the street sweepers end up going to landfill. Each autumn in Canberra the leaves of thousands of deciduous trees change colour and fall to the ground covering lawns, footpaths and gutters.Some households deal with the leaves by scooping them up to use on their gardens; others cart them away or rake them into the gutter for a street sweeper to collect.But what is the best way to deal with the autumn leaves on your footpath or front lawn?Leaves on the road end up in waterways or landfillEach year Roads ACT’s five street sweepers collect 16,000 tonnes of leaf matter — about eight Olympic swimming pools worth — in a bid to keep it out of waterways. (ABC Radio Canberra: Penny Travers)
Mr Marshall said raking leaves onto the road was not helpful. and that upsets the whole water ecosystem,” Ken Marshall, director of Roads ACT, told ABC Radio Canberra’s Lish Fejer. “Unfortunately the leaves on the road we pick up with all the other rubbish and leakages from vehicles and all the other stuff that ends up on the roads,” Mr Marshall said.”We can’t keep them separate when we sweep the leaves off the road, so that really limits the opportunities for us to beneficially reuse that material.”

Most of the leaf matter collected by the city’s five street sweepers ends up in landfill. (ABC Radio Canberra: Penny Travers)
Some leaves, like those from oak and plane trees, could take a long time to break down, so Mr Williams recommended breaking them up first with a mulcher or lawn mower.Leaf matter on the garden stops weeds, keeps in moistureAnn Smith is one Canberran who makes the most of the falling autumn leaves each year.She goes out with her wheelbarrow to collect leaves from the verge outside her Turner house.”I just put them straight on top of my garden; they’re very good compost and take quite a while to break down,” she said.”A lot of leaves on your garden makes a big difference; they keep the weeds down and they keep everything a bit moist.”

Photo:
Autumn leaves can be turned into leaf mould to provide extra nutrients for your garden. Autumn leaves ‘gold on the garden’ ABC Radio Canberra’s gardening expert Graham ‘Willow’ Williams urged people to consider the leaves a resource. “They’re just gold in the garden,” he said. “Excess nutrients in the waterways produces algal blooms … “That can be put on the garden about 30cm thick and that will break down again by the worms accessing it and then suddenly it’s just rich organic matter around your plants.”

Roads ACT urges Canberrans not to rake autumn leaves onto the road. (ABC Canberra: Penny Travers)
So it appears that while raking up leaves can be hard work and seem a bit of a chore, it is the best option for dealing with the autumn fall. “It’s beneficial for the whole environment if we pick the leaves up.” “They’re so beneficial to the garden that there’s no reason not to reuse them.”While some leaves could be added to a compost bin, Mr Williams recommended turning the leaves into leaf mould (semi-decomposed leaf matter).”Make a pile of leaves, water it a bit, and possibly cover it if you need to so the wind doesn’t blow them away,” he said.”Turn the pile over a bit, keep it moist and in about three months or so you’ll have semi-decomposed leaf mould.

Fin for a fin: Shark attack survivors fight against culls

Map:
Melbourne 3000
Profits go to shark charitiesProfits from sales of Fin For A Fin will be directed to shark research group Tag For Life and community-based shark alert app Dorsal. A group of surfers, including two who lost limbs in shark attacks, are promoting a surfboard fin aimed at stopping shark culls.To be manufactured in the Victorian surf town of Torquay, the black-and-white fibreglass fin features the words: “If my life’s taken, don’t take theirs.” By fixing the fin to their board, the surfer is indicating that in the event they are killed by a shark, they do not wish the shark to be killed in retaliation. (AAP: ScreenWest)
Mr Metson said Fin For A Fin were crowdfunding because they “don’t have the money to fund the production of the fins up front”.”The fins are not cheap, they’re a really high quality surf fin.”We didn’t just want it to be a statement, we wanted it to perform for people so they use it and it’s a fin that they would love to have on their board.” Co-founder Alex Metson said there was often “hysteria” when a tragic shark attack occurred, with calls for the shark to be killed in retaliation.”Often when everyone’s talking about this, no-one’s really talking about the surfer’s wishes.”He said the two groups to benefit from sales of the fin were chosen as they both worked to “make the oceans safer for both species”.Surfers purchasing a fin can also add their name to a searchable online register, allowing loved ones and authorities to confirm their wishes that sharks not be harmed.

The group is taking orders for the Fin For A Fin, as it is called, on crowdfunding site Indiegogo. The initiative is supported by surf photographer Mike Coots, who was 18 when a tiger shark bit off his right leg while boogie boarding in Hawaii.In the decade since he has become an outspoken advocate for shark conservation, and in 2014 condemned Western Australia’s now-discontinued catch and kill program. Paul de Gelder, who in 2009 lost an arm and a leg after a bull shark attack in Sydney Harbour, has also thrown his support behind the project. Photo:

Aboriginal artist Uncle Dennis Seymour, at 86 years old, has become one of the oldest university graduates in Gippsland, in eastern Victoria.He was among 120 graduates at Federation University’s graduation ceremony at its Churchill campus.
I came back six years ago, my wife died here in Gippsland. (ABC Gippsland: Laura Poole)
On graduation day, Uncle Dennis was flanked by family, some whom had travelled from New South Wales to watch their father and grandfather graduate.Uncle Dennis has four children, and he proudly lists their occupations: doctor, school teacher, manager, and biomedical engineer.For the last five decades he has painted, with the style and technique he uses changing over time.”I paint landscape, and I paint country with country, which is ochre,” he said.”I used to paint in oil and acrylic. I don’t want to make anything out of it, I just want to pass on my knowledge.” Uncle Dennis is an Aboriginal elder who is recognised for his work painting in ochre. She loved it here.”He and his wife Evelyn were married for almost 60 years.For Uncle Dennis, who lives in Yallourn North, now that he has graduated he will not stop working.”What comes next is the tutoring,” he said.”Any children from the kindergarten, or schools or young people who want to learn art, I’m prepared to voluntarily teach them. His Aboriginal mother, Bertha Amy Mountford, gave birth to him in Queensland.”I’ve lived in 26 places: Queensland, New South Wales, Western Australia, South Australia and Gippsland is one of the nicest places. But to paint culture I needed to paint with something different.”If you’re going to paint, there’s no use doing portraits — paint your country.”

He said he was proud to have graduated with a Master of Visual Arts.”I’m quite proud of being 86, to achieve that, I really feel I’ve achieved something,” he said.”When I started school as a five-year-old in 1935, that was a long time ago in Queensland. (ABC Gippsland: Laura Poole)
Uncle Dennis was born in 1930, the youngest of 16 children. I sat in the front seat with three Aboriginal boys and we played dots all day and when we got sick of dots we went to the garden and grew cabbages and lettuces and that was my education.”So I had practically no education when I was at school, of course the school closed down for two years during the Second World War, so there was no school then and besides that it was thought in that era it was impossible to teach Aboriginal children anything besides growing vegetables.”

Have you been caught up among the dust, heat and noise of Adelaide’s O-Bahn tunnel project, only to be greeted by a traffic controller with a long, flowing beard and an almost permanent grin?Anthony “Bear” Saska has become somewhat of a local icon for passers-by.”I’ve been through plenty of roadworks myself and you see some miserable people on the bat [stop/slow sign],” Bear told ABC Radio Adelaide’s Mornings program.”[Being unhappy] is pointless, it gives you an ulcer, so I just keep smiling, keep the people in the cars smiling and maintain positivity.”As a way to keep people entertained while waiting at the roadworks, Bear has been known to don a costume.”I spent two days in 30-plus weather in a Santa suit.”It was like being rolled up in an oiled sheepskin and shoved in an oven.”It was worth it though according to Bear.”[Seeing] the look on people’s faces and kids with their eyes as wide as dinner plates — I was a happy man.”

He has also been known to use his deep velvet tones to serenade a few frustrated motorists.”I had one young lady who had two screaming kids in the backseat … I’d stopped the traffic and she was right in front of me.”I flipped the bat over like a guitar and started playing Only You Can Make My Dreams Come True.”After about 30 seconds of that she’s doubled over the steering wheel laughing her guts out, the kids have stopped crying and are just looking at me bug-eyed and they drove off with big smiles on their faces.”Now what better feeling in the world is there than that?”

DPTI Bear award tweet
Bear was recently commended for his work ethics at the Civil Contractors Federation of South Australia Awards.He said he hoped his unique approach to traffic control would help drivers remember worksite employees were human too.”If you are going through roadworks, just look around, as we are not here to harass, annoy or piss you off. “We’re telling you there is something up ahead that you really don’t want to run into.”Bear said apart from the occasional motorist who sped through the roadworks, the majority were well behaved.

Three days before the attempt was to take place, the Mackay Entertainment and Convention Centre venue had only 70 participants registered out of the 251 needed.”This morning I woke up and I was really, really nervous and we were driving down from Proserpine to Mackay and I’m thinking ‘Oh, we’re not going to make it, we’re not going to make it’,” Ms Fisk said.”I got here and there’s all these people out in the foyer.”At one stage we were four short, and so we’re running around trying to find people who would come in and participate and learn how to tap and we actually got more than four, so we’ve well and truly made over the 250.”The next step is to send off the official count documentation to Guinness for verification, which will take several weeks.If verified, the city of Mackay will be sent a certificate confirming it holds the world record for the most number of people in a single venue for a tap dancing lesson.Neil McIntyre was one of the tappers who contributed to the world record attempt.He said, as a musician, he loved the percussive element of tap dancing.”I haven’t been consistent, put it that way, but I love tap dancing,” he said.”When I can find a class I go to it, but there’s not that many adult classes around, it’s mostly for young people. (ABC Tropical North: Sophie Meixner)
“My ballet classes that I teach back in Melbourne are pretty popular, but they never do reach over 250, so it’s pretty exciting,” Mr Meldrum said. Photo:

Ms Douglas, who has been tapping since she was four, said it was “fantastic” to see all ages introduced to tap dancing.”Looking around there were so many different levels of experience and age levels as well; we saw grandmas and grandpas and tiny tots,” she said.”But everyone gave it a red hot go.” Photo:

(ABC Tropical North: Sophie Meixner)
With stewards recording participants to meticulous standards, and Guinness filming the event for verification, 274 tappers took part in the lesson, beating the previous record of 250.The idea started when a dance troupe touring from Melbourne realised it would ring in Tap Dance Day in a region that probably could use a pick-me-up.Producer of A Fine Romance Margaret Fisk said the idea started as a tap dance workshop for seniors and evolved into a world record attempt.”Literally, it was on a whim,” she said.”It was like, seriously we’re in Mackay, let’s bring the community together, they’ve had lots of issues with the cyclone passing through, we just wanted to bring the community together to have some fun and this was a good way of doing it.”I thought, wouldn’t it be cool if we broke a Guinness World Record.”It was one of those silly ideas that you think of late at night while you’re drinking your coffee.

(ABC Radio Canberra: Hannah Walmsley) Can you recall sitting in a classroom about to start an activity, having completely tuned out while instructions were given?Learning to clear the mind and refocus is a challenge at any age.For students at Gold Creek Primary School in Canberra’s north, mindfulness and movement classes are helping them to master that skill.

Mindfulness and movement class
More than 700 students across 25 classes at the school are trialling a yoga-like program to practise mindfulness in the classroom each week.Year six students Uzair Iqbal and Jessica Harmer said the classes had helped them to concentrate on their work.”Afterwards everybody is nice and calm, we feel relaxed and there’s less noise and interruptions,” Uzair said.”I think if I had a big test and I did some mindfulness techniques before, it would make me have a clear mind so I could not worry so much and just get on with it.””It’s great to be able to know a way to relax when you get busy,” Jessica added.”When you’re really calm, it’s easier to do your best work.”

Justine Janssen from Power Yoga Canberra said even the most distracted kids had embraced the classes.”The aim is to teach the kids about focus, about calm breathing and how to integrate that into their daily life.”We use a singing bowl in each class to capture the kids’ attention; it really draws them in.”So often we see teachers clap their hands to get the children’s attention, so for us that singing bowl does that; it’s a real source of fascination because it omits a beautiful sound.”So many kids that were distracted on the first week are now so much more present in the class.”

Brendan Carswell, the school’s director of student advancement, said the program was inspired by a group of parents at the school.”If we get to the end of this and find it’s been a success, it’s something we’re going to embed into every classroom,” he said.The classes run for around 20 minutes and involve breathing exercises and gentle movement.”We’re finding it’s especially good after break times,” Mr Carswell said.The program is based on classes developed by Sydney-based organisation Clear Minded for Life and is being delivered in the school by local instructors from Power Yoga Canberra.”The whole idea is to upskill our own teachers so they can continue this program,” Mr Carswell said.

Heath and Nikki Parslow are up for adventure, and raising money for a good cause. Hundreds of cheap cars have set off from Adelaide for an outback trip to Cairns in the Shitbox Rally, a fun and fundraising event to support cancer research.Organisers hope the teams and their colourful vehicles will enjoy the first day of the week-long event, as the roads are sealed for the 570 kilometres to outback Roxby Downs. “Fingers crossed. We trust her.”The rules require cars to be valued at $1,000 or less.The rally teams head for a designated stop at the end of each day — first Roxby Downs, then Oodnadatta, Tobermorey Station, Burke and Wills Roadhouse, Einasleigh and reaching Cairns next Friday.

She said Team Bucket List, the name they participate under, worked hard to get the car into rally shape.”It had no keys and no registration and pretty much no interior, but through donations we were able to get it up and running,” she said.As for whether the Commodore is up to the gruelling drive?

But some of the driving will be on remote dirt roads in the days ahead as the rally heads for north Queensland, via the Northern Territory.Adelaide couple Heath and Nikki Parslow are among those taking the 3,800-kilometre challenge and have personally passed $6,500 in their fundraising efforts so far.Ms Parslow said they faced a bit of a challenge this morning just to get to the start line in the Adelaide CBD.”We had a little bit of a mishap, the car didn’t want to start,” she laughed.”We’re driving a VC Commodore wagon, a V8 4.2-litre, and it’s a true shitbox.”We purchased it specifically for this event, we found it in a storage place — we purchased it for $415.”

Farina now attracts plenty of outback travellers as its original structures are slowly being returned and walking trails with signage created.One of the early restoration projects was to bring the ghost town’s bakery back to life, and Mr Harding said it proved very popular when it opened for business each winter season.”There is smoke coming out of the chimney of the old bakery,” he said.”Even for locals out here, fresh bread is an absolute luxury. We’ve got a delightful campground here,” he said.”I’d like to see them spend two nights here and two days.”Ghost town a history lessonThe Farina project convenor said many students were being taught less Australian history than in past eras, but he had high hopes of improving that situation by getting young people to visit the ghost town.”They’ll be like all the other tourists who come through, they’ll get very excited,” he said. Outback ghost town Farina is coming back to life for the winter months, as volunteers descend on the area to continue a restoration effort which started back in 2009.Project convenor Tom Harding said the cooler season was always the ideal time for the work, and this year a couple of chimneys still standing will have the original homestead rebuilt around them. “The old Patterson homestead — they were the station operators here for many years — was demolished and was just a footprint,” he said.”It is now being rebuilt as a reception centre and interpretive centre. Any bread you buy usually has to be frozen.”It’s pretty exciting [to get freshly baked bread] when you’ve been out on the road for a while in the outback.” Photo:

The resurrection of outback Farina can be a history lesson for modern-day students, project backers say. The facade of it will be as-original.”Mr Harding said the Patterson family had a long history in the far north of South Australia, and descendants of the early settlers were excited about the restoration effort.The two-stage rebuilding will rely on enough funds being raised for the work, but Mr Harding said the eventual aim was to have students stay at Farina and learn some important Australian history, about the original Ghan route and old telegraph link.”It will become an education centre for school groups.
