Tara Davis

Tara Davis, born on May 20th, 1999, in Agoura Hills, California is an American track and field athlete. She is the American junior record holder in the indoor long jump.

She broke the record February 11, 2017 at the Dumanis Sports Group Prep Classic in Frisco, Texas, jumping 6.68 meters or 21 feet 10+3⁄4 in.

Davis is also a hurdler. She qualified for the 2020 Summer Olympics by Jumping 7.04 meters to place second at the Olympic Trials.

Running for Agoura High School, she won three events at the CIF California State Meet. Her win in the 100 meters hurdles in 12.83 beat the National high school record, but it was aided by a +3.7 mps wind.

Her mark is the best under all conditions in history. She also set the state record in the long jump. Her 22 ft 1 in (6.73 m) beat the 24-year-old record by disgraced Olympian Marion Jones, who at the time jumped for Thousand Oaks High School.

She captured the attention of most of Ben's 2.6 million viewers with her great looks, quick wit and unpretentious personality..

It is unclear just how Benjamin and Alina became acquainted and when they decided to include Alina in numerous videos of travels in Russia, Belarus, Moldovia, Georgia, the Czech Republic, Cuba, and other locations in Africa such as Mauritas.

Anyone who has seen the videos on this YouTube Channel will agree that even though Ben's videos are very engaging and entertaining, the videos with Alina are the crem-de-la-crem.

There is something about her sense of humor coupled with her delightful personality that captures everyones attention and ellicits a certain respect for her ability to be such an easy-going and down-to-earth kind of girl.

She simply has that kind of presence that makes one immediately like her.

Lake Powell is a man-made reservoir on the Colorado River in Utah and Arizona in the United States.

A popular vacation spot visited by about two million people every year. It is the second largest man-made reservoir by maximum water capacity in the United States behind Lake Mead.

Lake Powell was created by the flooding of Glen Canyon by the Glen Canyon Dam Project, which also led to the creation of Glen Canyon National Recreation Area - a popular holiday destination on public land managed by the National Park Service.

The reservoir is named for explorer John Wesley Powell, a one-armed American Civil War veteran who explored the river via three wooden boats in 1869.

It primarily lies in parts of Garfield, Kane, and San Juan counties in southern Utah, with a small portion in Coconino County in northern Arizona.

Lençóis Maranhenses National Park

These Lençóis Maranhenses National Park is a national park in the Maranhão state of northeastern Brazil, just east of the Baía de São José. It is an area of low, flat and often flooded land overlaid with large pristine white sand dunes. .

It covers roughly 1,500 square klometers or 580 square miles. Even with abundant rainfall while supporting almost no vegetation, this area became a National Park in Brazil on June 2nd, 1981.

Composed of brilliant white sand dunes, at first glance the Lençóis Maranhenses looks like a typical desert, but in fact it is no desert at all. Situated just outside the Amazon Basin, this area is subject to a consistent rainy season during the beginning of the year.

The rains cause an interesting phenomenon - the rain water collects in the low areas between sand dunes and is prevented from seeping down by a layer of impermeable rock which lies just underneath the sand. Varying shades of blue, green and black 'lagoons' result and are surrounded by the desert-like white sand.

Trails of Lycia

These Lycian Rock Tombs were for the burials of Kings and other high-ranking individuals of the Lycian Empire.

This once decadent, lively center of commerce between the Mediterranean and Aegean seas dates from the 4th century, and represents an astonishing multi-cultural tapestry of Persian, Greek, Roman and Byzantine influences.

In addition to the acropolis, Kaunos' key features include elaborate, cliff-side, rock-cut tombs with imposing facades typical of the Greek Hellenic tradition, as well as Roman baths.

There's also a 4th century Byzantine church, a number of both Greek and Roman temples, and a magnificently-preserved, 2nd century amphitheater that seated 5,000 spectators while offering them breathtaking views of the sea and surrounding countryside.

There are several developed trail systems near Dalyan that give hikers a taste of great cultures that existed in the area, like ECO Trails, the Lycian Way Trail, and the Carian Trail.

Chaco Culture National Historical Park is a major unit of the United States National Park System located within the Navajo Nation in northwest New Mexico.

It preserves extensive ancestral pueblos of prehistoric native American Indian communities. Chaco Canyon's largest pueblo, Pueblo Bonito, is on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Troublesome Patriarchal Dominance - Time For More Women in Positions of Power

unique women of the world

Women from around the world that are living on the edge, doing something special, making a difference or generally in possession of a unique nature. In my book these women should be put in positions of power and allowed a chance to see what they would add to our world, instead of the men that promise blah-blah-blah and then fill their own pockets as well as the pockets of their buddies. The way I see it, any of this diverse group of women would be an improvement. These are the kind of women that should be put in positions of power. They would make positive contributions with their time and resources and leave the world better for having been here. And not to mention the fact that they all certainly look far more appealing...

From century to century throughout history the men have ruled the roost in politics and business and relegated the home as the place where the women were to direct their attention and efforts. The women have done their job admirably, but the men have failed miserably in most cases. Their politics are corrupt and their businesses have turned into large greedy corporations. The patriarchal model is evidently not working so well - so maybe it's time to hand the reins over to the women. The wars and conflicts around the world are the result of male dominance in politics, and more often than not, are set in motion to benefit male controlled corporate interests. Turn on the evening news anywhere in the world and you'll see images of angry men in conflict and women and children in flight. It is time for change...

Women Of Substance - Interesting and Unique Women

Worldwide women are asserting themselves and taking charge of everything from the corporate boardroom to more artistic and unique positions in the world of art, design, cuisine and adventure travel. On the African continent women are raising themselves into postions of power in politics, the arts and business. Women are no longer to be kept within stereotypical confines and are no longer asking for empowerment, but are simply taking charge over their lives and the situations and events that affect them. Above are just three of these self empowered females.

When it comes to being on the front lines amidst the unrest that has been reshaping countries around the world, it is now women who are placing themselves at risk to bring news to the rest of us about not only the conflicts that mainstream media reports, but often to expose corruption and abuses that might well never surface if it wasn't for these women on the ground in these locations bringing these misdeeds to the attention of a worldwide audience. The women above are three - one from Tunis, one from London, and one from Cairo that played integral roles in bringing the world's attention to injustice.

unique women of the world

The patriarchal cultures around the world have dominated for thousands of years and more often than not have brought conflict and mayhem. The women of today are not the incompetent and helpless creatures that, in times past were portrayed as inferior to me and therefore needed to remain on the sidelines to let the dominant males run everything. Todays women are physically strong, mentally tough and talented at whatever they put their minds to. So, it is bloody well time that the men stepped to one side and ceased to deny these remarkable women like the ones above their due.

The Girl Who Ran Across Africa

At the age of 27 Emma Timmis became the first female to run the Freedom Trail, a 2,400 kilometer through track from Durban to Cape Town in South Africa. This later led to running West to East across the continent of Africa, from Namibia to Mozambique.

This incredible run took Emma 89 days, covering the distance equal to 94 marathons, or almost 4,000 kilometers.

Emma suffered an injury that kept her at home for an extended period, so she wrote a childrens book about her runs across Africa to inspire young girls. The book is now available from her website at: www.emmatimmis.com
