Quem quiser vencer na vida deve fazer como os seus sábios: mesmo com a alma partida, ter um sorriso nos lábios. Dinamor
If you see a student dozing in the library or a co-worker catching 40 winks in her cubicle, don’t roll your eyes. New research from the University of California, Berkeley, shows that an hour’s nap can dramatically boost and restore your brain power. Indeed, the findings suggest that a biphasic sleep schedule not only refreshes the mind, but can make you smarter. Students who napped (green column) did markedly better in memorizing tests than their no-nap counterparts. (Courtesy of Matthew Walker)

You are here: Home / Dogs / Alaskan Malamute – Gracious Dog The Alaskan Malamute is a generally large breed of domestic dog originally bred for use as an Alaskan sled dog. It is sometimes mistaken for a Siberian Husky, but in fact is quite different in many ways. The American Kennel Club (AKC) breed standard calls for a natural range of size, with a desired freighting size of 23 inches and 75 pounds for females, 25 inches and 85 pounds for males. Heavier individuals and dogs smaller than 75 pounds are commonly seen.

Thanks to the Republicans' gains in the mid-term elections, the Democrats will find it harder to push legislation through Congress in 2011 (see article ). That means that if Barack Obama wants to make a mark in the coming year, he will have to do so in the wider world. But America's power to get its way in the world is waning. And however lofty Mr Obama's declared aims may be—moving towards a non-nuclear world, creating a “new global architecture”—he is going to have his work cut out simply avoiding disaster in the familiar snake pits of Afghanistan and the Middle East. In the case of Afghanistan, the summer of 2011 will almost certainly bring a collision between Mr Obama and the Republicans, and maybe between the president and his generals.

A superpower is a state with a dominant position in the international system which has the ability to influence events and its own interests and project power on a worldwide scale to protect those interests. A superpower is traditionally considered to be a step higher than a great power . Alice Lyman Miller (Professor of National Security Affairs at the Naval Postgraduate School ), defines a superpower as "a country that has the capacity to project dominating power and influence anywhere in the world, and sometimes, in more than one region of the globe at a time, and so may plausibly attain the status of global hegemony ." [ 2 ] It was a term first applied to the British Empire , the Soviet Union and the United States of America in 1944.
International Relations Theory
Polarity in international relations is any of the various ways in which power [ vague ] is distributed within the international system [ vague ] . It describes the nature of the international system at any given period of time. One generally distinguishes four types of systems: Unipolarity , Bipolarity , Tripolarity , and Multipolarity , for four or more centers of power.
