    Black Belt students at Personal Mastery Martial Arts in Sandy, Utah had a very unique experience this weekend when Master Will Mallmann visited their martial arts school and introduced them to Capoeira, a martial art that is often referred to as -Brazilian Dance Fighting.- Although students at Personal Mastery Martial Arts have a lot of experience in Taekwondo, Hapkido, and other martial arts forms, for most of the students this was their first time learning about or seeing Capoeira demonstrated.

    Master Will Mallmann taught a seminar for the black belt students where he not only demonstrated Capoeira, but also taught some of the basic movements and tricks. Participants in the seminar learned many things from the basic movement of the ginga, one of the most fundamental movements of Capoeira, to handstands and headstand cartwheels.

    Capoeira is a martial arts form that combines dancing, acrobatics, and martial arts techniques. Unlike many other martial arts, in Capoeira music is an essential element. When Capoeira is performed it is always performed to music and those watching help to keep the tempo by clapping in time with the music. The Capoeira performer matches their performance to the tempo of the music.

    For many of the participants at the Capoeira seminar, the performance at the end was their favorite part. All of the students stood in a circle and took turns going in and demonstrating their new-found Capoeira skills in time with the music. Everyone clapped and helped the performer stay with the tempo of the music, often calling out encouragement. The game quickly turned competitive.

    One participant, Kim McGowan-Jackson said, -The Capoeira seminar was so fun tonight! Thank you to Master Will Mallmann who has beyond awesome skills. Everyone did such a fantastic job. I think this is the beginning of a super fun Martial Arts weekend. I got to be a Brazilian fighter tonight!-

    Personal Mastery Martial Arts often invites visiting instructors to the school to teach their students about different kinds of martial arts and self defense systems. So while Master Will Mallmann was the not the first visiting instructor to visit the school, the students loved having him visit and teach them new things, and they look forward to his next visit.

    Is your university populace fit as a fiddle, sprinting between classes and the gym with the greatest of ease, or is it, as a whole, huffing and puffing its way back and forth from the computer lab to the local late-night hot dog joint? This is, of course, an exaggeration, but Mens Fitness magazine did partner with research organization the Princeton Review to come up with this much-needed, and never-before-produced, list.

    Using surveys of nearly 10,000 students from more than 660 of top colleges and universities in the United States, the researchers graded each school on the following criteria:

    Student Bodies: Students gender, height, weight and weight gained or lost since beginning college. Exercise: A measure of students participation in weekly vigorous and leisurely physical activity. Bad Habits: A summary of how much fast food, alcohol and cigarettes students consumed on a weekly basis, along with how much time was spent participating in sedentary activities (other than studying), like watching TV or playing video games. Other Lifestyle Choices: Supplement use, amount of sleep per night, and significant others influence on fitness goals. Campus Culture of Fitness: Physical fitness requirements (or recommendations) and student opinions on the overall fitness of their school and whether the campus promotes physical activity.

    The grades from each category were averaged to form the final grade. And the survey says:

    Foreign nationals applying for a UK student visa will have to face stricter entry criteria starting February 10. The new rules are set up to limit the ability of foreign students to work in the UK and make it illegal for their dependants to work at all. They will make entry to the UK much harder for foreign nationals who apply for UK student visa only as a means to come to the UK to work illegally.

    Before these measures were introduced, it was really easy to apply for a UK student visa. All a UK student visa applicant needed to show was a letter from an approved college or university that he is enrolled in a course of study and a proof of funds in the form of 5000 GPP that has stayed in their bank account for 30 days. The official letter is very easily obtainable as the college officials have no means to check if the person intends to study or not. The 5000 GBP can easily be borrowed and repaid while working illegally in the UK. For these reasons many people have abused the system through the years. Student visa used to be the easiest way to gain entry to the UK.

    The new rules will make sure that, first of all, all foreign nationals who want to apply for a UK student visa have a good standard of English. They will also limit the time a student visa holder studying below first degree or a foundation degree course is able to work legally to 10 per week during the term. Also, student visa holders will not be allowed to bring their dependants to the UK if they are studying a course shorter than 6 months. Moreover, dependants of UK student visa holders studying on a lower than undergraduate level are not allowed to work at all.

    These measures will allow genuine foreign students to still benefit from the world known for its high quality educational system in the UK and will stop illegal immigrants to enter the country as bogus students. Once a foreign student has completed his course of study and obtained a degree, he can stay in the UK legally by switching visa categories and apply for highly skilled worker visa or skilled worker visa in case they have an employer who wants to sponsor them. If they have found a partner in the UK, they can also apply for a marriage visa, common law marriage visa or same sex partner visa

    Over the last year I’ve sat in Starbucks and heard many a student complain and moan, then laugh about their huge student loan debt. Well, I don’t find it the least bit funny, nor do I approve of our government paving the way to yet another bubble building exercise, but that’s what’s happening, meanwhile colleges and universities have experienced more demand than supply so they have added on new wings, new degree programs and expanded campuses, all the while raising tuition costs to; whatever the market will bear.

    In some regards I find it fascinating that the left-leaning academia will continually trash on free-market capitalism while they create a Disneyland type of environment which is not based in any sort of economic reality, then have the brass nuts to tell us how to run our economy.

    Now then, there was an interesting piece on MSNBC Money online news on September 2, 2013 titled; “9 Ways to Cut Your Student Loan Debt” – For many, repaying student loans is a burdensome process. Here are some programs that can lend a helping hand,” in which the article sported many novel ideas from getting scholarships to good negotiation. But I have a better idea, get a job, or quit school.

    Want to know what’s even worse? Well, the Wall Street Journal has reported that “JP Morgan Will Exit the Student Loan Business,” by Dan Fitzpatrick and Robin Sidel, September 6, 2013 which noted that the company only made $200 million in 2012 from their student loan activities, and yet lent out over $6 billion. What does this mean, it means that with the number of defaults and the chances of these student loans going bad, they cannot risk the losses for such little revenue gains. Congress and the Obama Administration put in price controls, as most socialist countries due in various sectors to no avail disallowing the raising of interest rates even when more and more student loans go into default.

    If the banks cannot make money in this sector or making these types of loans they will stop, once they stop there will be fewer loans. Anytime price controls are instituted, and we know this not only from history but as any good student of micro-economics, there will be shortages. JP Morgan although not the largest player in the sector, is still a well-known name and if they’ve decided to do this others will follow, just as opponents to the interest rate moratoriums had predicted, as did I. Please consider all this and think on it.
