The Fame That Kim Kardashian Got from the Kim Kardashian Sex Tape

There are many ways on how to get famous in the Hollywood industry, but with the Kim Kardashian sex tape, Kim Kardashian made it anew. Though the process of getting fame that she wants was common, it made it possible for her to succeed and even get her family into the entertainment business. Kim Kardashian video was said to be leaked and released by Vivid Entertainment in 2007. The said personality sued the company and end up with a settlement of $5 million.
As the Kim Kardashian tape was sold online, many people grabbed the opportunity and made it possible to get a full copy of the Kim Kardashian sex tape. Some popular websites said that they have released the real videos but only to see that these are only cuts of the video. The tape made Kim Kardashian’s presence in the entertainment industry prominent since it was viewed by many and was criticized by some, as well. The tape was not popularized with just Kim Kardashian sex tape but as Kim K Superstar, which boosted Kim’s career.
What made the Kim Kardashian sex tape famous is that it has showed how seductive Kim can be with her lover. After the Kim K tape was released, the Kardashians started a whole new track with their lives as they enter the world of entertainment through a reality show called “Keeping Up with the Kardashians”. Aside from Kim, other siblings with mother Kris Jenner, were casted on the show and was named as highest earners in the business. The reality show was shown from October of 2007 till now. This reality show has helped not only Kim with her career but also with her sisters and mother, as well.
After the Kim Kardashian sex tape, the Kardashians grabbed the opportunity to launch various clothing lines and even fragrances. They have also ventured into releasing various cosmetic products and made it possible to keep an eye on making these businesses successful.
Though the Kim Kardashian sex tape was already released several years ago, the once-famous Kim K sex tape is now being talked again because of the released song of Ray J earlier this year. It is said the song “I Hit It First” by Ray J pertains to the Kim Kardashian sex tape since the video features a girl who looks like Kim frolicking in bed with him. Many people are again anticipating for a new Ray J sex tape and are even searching for recent posts of Kim K and Ray J tape on the internet.
As the Kim Kardashian sex tape is still increasing its sales from different providers, many people are still able to watch the full-length video in their homes or wherever they can access the internet. The continuous increase with the sales of the tape just shows that many people are still into what Kim and Ray J have recorded. Some are watching the Kim Kardashian sex tape online and some are buying a copy of the sex tape as an addition to their collection of celebrity’s sex tapes.

Nursing Homes and Retirement Homes in Canada

It is still customary for many people to think of “nursing homes” when they are considering care for aging loved ones. However, in Canada’s senior care industry, you will not hear many staff refer to “nursing homes.” The traditional “nursing home” in Canada is referred to as a long term care home, where patients will receive medical care and attention as warranted – perhaps from nurses on call around the clock.

The term “nursing home” also carries some negative connotations certainly and as a generic catchall term it is simply not fitting as a description of the many retirement living options available. In Canada today, senior care is increasingly adaptable and flexible, with a spectrum of options from complete independence to thorough care.

Some options you can find in retirement home living today include the following:

Active Adult Communities allow you to live in community with other people your own age with access to often-luxurious amenities such as a golf course, swimming pool, etc. These communities are usually age exclusive and the age of exclusion may be as low as 50 years. That doesn’t mean your grandkids can’t visit! They just can’t live with you.

Independent Living also allows you to live in an exclusive community but in this, you might also participate in communal meals and other activities. You may be protected by security and you may even want to hire your own home health care if needed.

Congregate Living may mix together people requiring various degrees of care, including (for example) independent seniors along with those who require help with house cleaning or other regular daily activities.

Long-term care homes offer residents care as required. Many people still think of these as “nursing homes.” These may be well-staffed with nurses and other medical staff and there may be many residents who require consistent care.

It’s important to note that the retirement home industry is responding to senior’s changing needs. The vast majority of retirement homes in Canada seek to treat residents with the very highest levels of respect, befitting those who have contributed so much to society in their lives. As the baby boomer generation puts their aging parents into retirement homes, they are demanding increased options and more respectful care. In fact, they are effecting changes that they will one day benefit from when they, too, decide to move into a retirement home.

Do Our Students Need to Swim in English or Pass Grammar Tests?

Do our students need to swim in English? Or do they need to focus on avoiding minor grammar mistakes? Should we encourage our students to speak as much English as possible? Or should we paralyze our students with exaggerated fears?

Okay, these are rhetorical questions. Yet our ESL students – even advanced ESL students – don’t have to be perfect; they have to be understood. Alas, many – far too many – English classrooms still focus far more on grammar than authentic communication skills. Our students need to speak clear, comprehensible English. Practical knowledge, not abstract theory, should be the focus of our English classes. English remains a tool and just a vital tool for our students to reach their life goals in the United States, Canada, Australia, or the United Kingdom. Here is a short list of important questions for our English language learners.

-Can they order food in a nice restaurant?
-Can students fill in government forms?
-Can they understand classified ads – online or in a paper?
-Can they negotiate prices at a yard sale?
-Do they understand a front page newspaper article?
-Are ELLs able to confirm information?
-Can adult students make clear recommendations?
-Can ESL students share personal experiences?
-Do students feel comfortable participating in classroom discussions?
-Can they give a competent classroom presentation to fellow students – or at work?
-Can they effectively interview for an appropriate job?
-Do they feel comfortable at social events with native English speakers?
-Can they, in short, swim in English?

If people want to communicate, meaning matters most. In other words, our students don’t need to speak perfect English with zero grammar errors anywhere outside of some English classrooms. Sometime English teachers, perhaps in a bid to help students ace their TOEFL scores, exaggerate grammar points that have little or no practical importance in daily life. Let’s look at some common language errors that our students make, and move the discussion outside of our ESL classrooms.

Will the absence of articles (a, an, the) prevent a student from buying something?
Will a confusion of “much” and “many” prevent someone from receiving assistance?
How crucial is subject-verb agreement in daily conversations?
Grammar fundamentalists hate hearing the simple truth. These errors of limited significance for most adult English language learners outside the English classroom and white collar professions. Our students need to swim in English more than they need to pass grammar tests.

Further, the focus on accurate grammar and the expectation of “correct” English can cause excessive self-consciousness. In fact, I’ve worked with many English language learners who use severe, often extreme negative language to describe quite competent and sometimes strong presentations in adult education, community college, and university courses. This severe self-criticism places huge barriers on many English language learners. Worse, this perfectionism ironically limits their willingness to engage with the broader English speaking society. That’s why I often tell high intermediate and advanced students, who are often quite ambitious and hard on themselves, to “kill the perfectionist demon”. During the first few weeks of class, I usually emphasize this point with a simple “swim in English” pitch.

“You don’t have to conquer English; you just have to swim in it everyday. Attentively listen to authentic English. Listen to podcasts and the radio. Create small conversations. Just ask a question. Read something in English everyday. Follow your interests in English. Allow yourself to be yourself in English. Jump into the language, and do your best. Start swimming in English. Our class is a safe place to expand your English skills, and learn by doing. I want to see significant, meaningful, and verifiable progress. I’m not interested in perfection. We want significant progress. Let’s get going and make some good mistakes together. Let’s swim in English, and see how far you can swim this semester.”

Our ESL students don’t have to be speak perfect; they have to be understood by listeners. They have to be functional in English. They have to perform particular language tasks. They have to speak English inside and outside the class, and successfully convey their ideas. Most English language learners need practice speaking, and positive social experiences in English. They need more conversation opportunities, and fewer grammar lessons. In short, our English students have to swim in English; they don’t have to swim across the English Channel.

Fishing for Steelhead in Canada

If you’re an experienced fishing hobbyist or enthusiast, you should be ready for steelhead fishing. And what better place to do it than in Canada? Steelhead fishing is popular there because of the abundance of this species and also because of the numerous bodies of water found there.

The Canadian steelhead

The steelhead belongs to the trout family and is considered as a close relation of another popular fish, the rainbow trout. It is one of the most sought after game fish and is highly prized. It is native to North America’s west coast and is also found in California, USA, Japan and Asia’s east coast.

Although most types of rainbow trout stay in the streams where they were hatched all their lives, some of them migrate to other bodies of water such as lakes while others move out to sea.

The steelhead is one of these seagoing trout. They are spawned in the rivers and streams where they stay for a year. They then swim to the sea as smolts and live 2-3 years there until they mature. As adults, they will return to the rivers were they began life. Canadian steelheads can be pretty impressive, weighing up to 20 lbs. when mature.

Fishing for the steelhead

In Canada, the steelhead can be found in many of this country’s numerous rivers and streams. Fishing for the steelhead isn’t for beginners with little experience because it requires both patience and some skills. Fishing for the steelhead in Canada also means catching the fish during the colder months starting August until December, although they can also be caught until April. In some areas with heavy snows, fishing for the steelhead can be a very challenging adventure indeed.

Two of the most popular ways to catch the steelhead is through fly fishing and/or drift fishing using pink worms and roe. Certain areas in Canada also limit the number of steelheads you can catch. For example, some areas will only allow one catch from a hatchery per day and only two in the possession of the fisherman, with a maximum of only 10 steelheads per year. Any wild steelhead caught must also be released.

Advantages of fishing for steelhead in Canada

Probably the best reason for fishing for steelheads in Canada is the fact that many resorts and outfitters are available to assist and advice visitors. Equipment is also readily available and there are countless locations where fishing may be done. Furthermore, there is an added benefit of having plenty of other activities to do and scenic beauty to enjoy.
