Christmas: Perfect books for adolescents who loves to read.

Christmas: Perfect books for adolescents who loves to read.

We have compiled a shortlist of four books to get a hold of before Christmas.

In these modern times, where everything seems to be focused on computer games and gaming consoles – it is nice to remind our young men and adolescents that there is something called a book – a magical place where you have to create the visual imagery for yourself, instead of having it done for you. So, here’s a list of four perfect books for young men who loves reading.

 

Featured authors in this ‘Christmas: Perfect books for adolescents who loves to read.’ list: J.K. Rowling, Alexander Van Dorph, Dan Brown and Donna Tartt.

 


The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling.

 

"A big novel about a small town, The Casual Vacancy is J.K. Rowling's first novel for adults. 
It is the work of a storyteller like no other." 

 

Those of us who have read / seen the Harry Potter series, which would be most of us (see video below if haven’t – really though?), know about J.K.’s prowess as a author. Her work is filled to the brim with astonishing storylines and characters that have a way of finding their way into your heart.

 


Cognitive Disturbance by Alexander Van Dorph.

“Los Mirra.

A dystopian metropolis run by nefarious criminal gangs and corrupt politicians. Amidst the ironclad skyscrapers of the city we find Leopold Von Tiller, a man who has grown successful despite the ruthless conditions. His fortune takes a turn for the worse as he encounters brutality with a deadly outcome. When death strikes, Leopold finds himself waging war on several fronts.

 

Whether throwing punches in a primitive bar brawl or exchanging sharp, malevolent words in a boardroom over a hostile takeover, the basics are the same – outmaneuver the opposition, strike with deadly precision and ultimately destroy your adversary. Leopold soon learns how these rules apply to every human being, and must adapt to the unfolding situation or see himself devoured in the failure to do so.

 

Can he endeavour at the heart of ferocity, or will hatred take a hold and tear him apart? Packed with intense action, unreciprocated love and betrayal, Cognitive Disturbance is a compelling read that will appeal to fans of crime thrillers.”

This synopsis is enough for us – we wantsss it.

The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt

The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt.

Composed with the skills of a master, The Goldfinch is a haunted odyssey through present day America and a drama of enthralling force and acuity.

 


Inferno by Dan Brown.

Synopsis: “In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology, Robert Langdon, is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces . . . Dante’s Inferno.

Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust . . . before the world is irrevocably altered.”

Dan Brown, the former English teacher, has shown his mastery as a pop book seller – his sales records and accomplishments speak for themselves. Inferno is perhaps his best work as of yet.

 

If you want to get your hands on some books for Christmas – these four books would be the ones to gun for.

 

Oh, and you might have to make your way through the ferocious Xbox One and PS4 armies – so bring a Wii Nunchuck or two.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Official trailer video:

Rykter: Mette Marit – ‘utro, skilsmisse, fortid og rusavhengighet…’

Rykter: Mette Marit – ‘utro, skilsmisse, fortid og rusavhengighet…’

 

Ryktene i sosiale medier vil nå ha det til at Mette Marit’s fortid med utagerende festing har innhentet henne, og at hennes møysommelige hverdag rett og slett ble for kjedelig for henne. Noe som igjen førte til at hun begynte å ruse seg  og innlede et forhold med Rema Reitan. Ja, det er en skikkelig evigvarende hviskelek dette her… når vil den stoppe?

 

Det er liten tvil om at det meste vi hører i sosiale medier og lignende bare er vås. Senest i dag ble det lagt ut rykter om at Rema 1000 Reitan og Mette Marit har hatt et hemmelig forhold – selv om påstandene tidligere har dreiet seg om hennes personlige rådgiver Wold-Reitan. Noen har altså hørt snakk om ‘Reitan’ og derette fortalt videre at det er Rema-Reitan det er snakk om. Selv om begge påstandene nok har lite hold i seg – får man hvertfall håpe. Et godt eksempel på hvordan usannheter bygger på seg og spinner ut av kontroll.

Vi vet fra tidligere at det er mange ondsinnede, spekulative rykter ute og går – og det må være særdeles sårende for de partene som er rammet av alle disse spekulasjonene. De har jo ingen sjanse for å ta til motmæle mot rykteflommen.

Noen har spekulert i at det er Mette Marits fortid som har innhentet henne, og at depresjon / tiltaksløshet har ledet henne inn i en verden av rus og illegale substanser. Det ble allerede i 2001, publisert en ‘sjokk-bok’ om Mette-Marits fortid – skrevet av Se & Hør journalist Håvard Melnæs – der forfatteren hevdet at Kronprinsessen hadde brukt både hasj og ecstasy piller. Boken framlegger ingen håndfaste bevis for denne påstanden.

 

Av andre ‘avsløringer’ så blir Mette-Marits house / dance fortid beskrevet, og det blir også hevdet at Mette-Marit spilte lesbisk i en dancevideo. Noen av scenene var så dristige at MTV valgte å klippe dem bort.

 

Kjærligheten mellom Kronprinsesse Mette-Marit og Kronprins Haakon Magnus har vært sterk i mange år og de har også to barn sammen; Ingrid Alexandra (født 21.januar 2004) og Sverre Magnus (født 3.desember 2005). Vi får håpe at alt dette bare er rykter – og at Kronprins Haakon Magnus, som i 2001 var villig til å abdisere for Mette-Marit, ikke blir rammet av noen skandaløse avsløringer.

– Hva er dine tanker rundt ryktene om Mette-Marit og Haakon? Er dette nok en fjær som har blitt til tjue høns?

 

Nyhet: Mette-Marit og Haakon har uttalt at de nekter å kommentere ryktene, dette sier de til Hello Magazine.

 

Det ville ikke være første gangen ondsinnede rykter rammer Mette-Marit og Kronprinsparet… vi håper for deres skyld at det bare er tomme rykter, og at dette løser seg for dem.

New Hampshire Grom Surfing – with Alicia and Madisyn

New Hampshire Grom Surfing – with Alicia and Madisyn.

Madisyn Brayshaw. A gromett(e) you might have to look out for in competitions the next couple of years. She has one main goal in life, and seems determined to make it happen – going PRO and living off surfing.

 

 1) Hi there Alicia!  Tell us a little bit about yourself and your daughter Madisyn.

– My daughter Madisyn Brayshaw is 11 yrs old. First year surfing and it is already clear that she was meant to do this. A natural. She got 2nd place in the Molly surf competition in her division. There is no stopping her, she decided to surf through the winters here in New Hampshire. The water holds about a 38 degree (fahrenheit) temperature, that is equivalent to 3 degrees celsius. That shows commitment! Madisyn has a plan to go pro someday and works very hard when she is in the water – always working on ways to improve and hone her skills.

2) How did you get interested in surf photography? And where do you see yourself in 5 years? Going PRO?

–  I have a strong passion for photography. Trying to eventually start a business with it. In 5 yrs I would love to see myself traveling a bit and doing this professionally. I’ve come to love the ocean and all it’s elements. My daughter and I are quite the team. She brought me to the love of surf photography. Currently working on putting together a portfolio and an FB page. Peeps can find my pics on my personal page as well as Instagram for now.

Stoked definition – defining stoked.

The definition of stoked and super stoked.

 

Stoked definition (Adjective): Being stoked symbols a state or feeling of excitement, exhilaration, joy and euphoria packed into one big bundle. Generally used to describe when a person is looking forward to something or is incredibly happy about something. In the younger states of the word, it was predominantly used among skaters, surfers and snowboarders looking to claim it as a part of their boardculture, but with time this word has become more and more common amongst the general public.

Stoked sentence examples:

“I was so stoked after landing that 360 on my snowboard.”

“Bro, I just went in there with my surfboard and got barreled bro’.. I was like super stoked you know.”

 

Super stoked definition (Adjective): That feeling when stoked simply doesn’t cut it. To be super stoked is to be in a state of euphoric excitement matched by few other emotions. Most often used when a person has done something that really pushed their limits to the maximum, for example landing a snowboard trick that everybody deemed impossible.

Super stoked sentence examples:

“I was super stoked after landing that 360 on my mom’s bicycle.”

“Bro, I just went in there with a floating mattress and got barreled bro’.. I was like so super stoked you know.”
