Help Scouts of Mexico with earthquake relief efforts | #ScoutAid #ScoutsMexico

On 19th September 2017, a major earthquake killed hundreds of people and caused catastrophic damages in Mexico City and the surroundings. 
Scouts of Mexico took immediate actions to assist the population, turning their headquarter into a collection and operation centre, delivering food and drinks to rescuers, assisting with clearing rubble and encouraging blood donation.

 Considering the magnitude of the damages, relief and recovery efforts will take time and will necessitate significant resources to help the Scouts continue their support to the population and live their ideal of being always ready to serve. Your donation will support their operations in the field allowing Scouts to assist in the ongoing rescue and relief efforts.

Trainera races is an ancient sport in the Basque Country. The competition to win the Flag of the Kontxa of San Sebastian is the cap and the prize most desired.
 
These are scenes from the competition this year, which ended on Sunday, September 10 and in which separately, men-drawn trawlers as well as women participate. they run several sleeves and the trawler that wins the least time between them wins.
 
The sleeves are made in open sea in groups of four trawlers and the most important point is when the ciaboga is made in the buoy to reverse the direction.
 
The rivalry between the trawlers of Bizkaia and those of Gipuzkoa is legendary, this year won the trawler of Orio, Gipuzkoa. In the women’s trawlers also won one from Gipuzkoa, the one from Pasajes de San Juan.
 
To enjoy the show and congratulations to the champions !!

Las carreras de traineras es un deporte antíguo en el País Vasco. La competencia para ganar la Bandera de la Kontxa de San Sebastián es el tope y el premio mas apetecido.
Estas son escenas de la competencia de este año, cuya final fue el domingo 10 de septiembre y en la que participan, por separado, traineras tripuladas por hombres y también por mujeres. se corren varias mangas y gana la trainera que sume menos tempo entre ellas.
Las mangas se hacen en mar abierto en grupos de cuatro traineras y el punto mas importante es cuando se hace la ciaboga en la boya para invertir el sentido.
La rivalidad entre las traineras de Bizkaia y las de Gipuzkoa es legendaria, este año ganó la trainera de Orio, Gipuzkoa. En las traineras femeninas ganó también una de Gipuzkoa, la de Pasajes de San Juan.
A disfrutar del espectáculo y felicitaciones a los campeones!!

Glinski from #Jacksonville #Florida in #Amsterdam. ==> “To further my study of city-building, I toured the regenerating neighborhoods of Amsterdam’s north side with an urban planner I met at a recent TEDx here. I challenged myself to confine my camera work to only my smartphone. This is the result. Many thanks to those who helped with arrangements.” #CityManagement

#DavidHopcroft #ExploringMontenegro ==> “Not quite as adventurous today. A trip down to Ulcinj near the Albanian border. Pleasant seaside town and parts of the coast here are less developed and show a lovely coastline with pines sloping down to rocky outcrops and small sandy bays. Slight hiccup when lights on car failed, they are needed because plenty of tunnels here ad some have no lighting. However got that sorted.”
