Import the image, add transparency
Once you import an image it will not have transparency. For this you will need to highlight the layer, colors-> transparency -> add alpha channel. You will notice that the layer name goes from bold to not bold. Duplicate the layer, just in case of a mistake.

Here are a list of advanced balance exercises you can do. These are progressively harder and will take time to master. Go slowly. The advanced ones, such as standing up on a swiss ball, are potentially dangerous.
Balance is really important for all aspects of life and sport. The more you practice, the easier it gets. All levels or balance, from really shaky on up, can improve and benefit. Balance, an autonomic system, is controlled by your inner ear, vision and proprioception (feeling of space in your limbs and muscles).
Balance exercises are also a lot of fun.
A friend sent me his GPS coordinates from Mexico City. I thought I’d verify that both GPS and Google Maps works as intended.

It is a bit odd that the restaurant’s sixth character seems to be written incorrectly on the large blue sign, but is written properly on the white cloth sign above it. The blue sign only used the top right side of the character for “餐” can1.
I’ve not been here, but a friend is here. I hope my greetings and good wishes will find her and that she is well. Sometimes the journey is difficult. you get stuck in a downdraft and for all your effort, there’s nothing you can do but get sucked down. There is a lot of luck in life, and at times your luck might run down. Friends can help you, if you have then and they can find you.

It is not as nice as actually being there, but when you’re stuck in Toronto it continues to be interesting. It is a lot faster.
Today I’m going to Shandong Province, Yantai City. It’s a coastal town about the size of Toronto’s 4M people. In China that’s a 3d tier city, barely big enough to warrant note on China’s large single page map. The place I’m going to is somewhat near Ludong University, about 1.5km away.

BinZhou City is a mere 1.5 hrs from Xi’An. I was touring around here using Baidu Maps. It is a lot of fun. The neighbourhood looks pretty nice. There is a high school and a middle school in the same area, with a mountainous backdrop.

These 16 basic desires, by Professor Steven Reiss are interesting. He says that each of us is an individual, driven by different motivations. No one is “wrong”, just different.
Reiss has found that 16 basic desires guide nearly all meaningful behavior. The desires are power, independence, curiosity, acceptance, order, saving, honor, idealism, social contact, family, status, vengeance, romance, eating, physical exercise, and tranquility.
“These desires are what drive our everyday actions and make us who we are,” Reiss said. “What makes individuals unique is the combination and ranking of these desires.”
