5 Real Life Soldiers Who Make Rambo Look Like a Pussy We all understand that action movies are cheesy escapism. After all, could one commando really take out a whole compound full of bad guys? Actually, yes. It turns out the history books are full of stories of soldiers doing things so badass they'd hesitate to put them into a film for fear of killing the realism. Like these five, for example. #5. Who Was He? Simo Hayha had a fairly boring life in Finland. Since the majority of fighting took place in the forest, he figured the best way to stop the invasion was to grab his trusty rifle, a couple of cans of food and hide in a tree all day shooting Russians. Can you spot Hayha? Of course when the Russians heard that dozens of their men were going down and that it was all one dude with a rifle, they got fucking scared. They started by sending out a task force to find Hayha and take him out.

Centro Multimedia Future Earth How to Be Absolutely Fucking Unstoppable Wanna do great things? Make up your mind that NOTHING is gonna stop you. No one else has a say, unless you give ‘em that right. It’s literally all up to you. Your success or failure has nothing to do with anything else, anyone else, and anything that is not YOU. Thinking that something or someone can stand in your way is giving away all your power and giving permission to the world to choose your destiny for you. Stories in your head about why you can’t do it—the kids, your lack of skills and education, it’s too late, too early, you’re too young, too old, or the dog ate your homework and pissed on your good shoes—are works of pure fiction unless you choose to make them your reality. If you’re ready and willing to do whatever it takes, even if that means being laughed at and taking a few beatings along the way, then cut the umbilical cord connected to what the world thinks and move forward with intense determination that nothing or no one is gonna stop you. If you’re scared, that’s good.

Ogilvy México - Nosotros Timeline: Earth's Precarious Future Our planet and its inhabitants - including we humans - are in a precarious position as we approach Earth Day, April 22. While global warming is widely accepted as a reality by scientists and many governments and industrial leaders, progress to curb greenhouse gases and other forms of pollution remains limited. The current economic climate will likely make pollution control efforts more difficult, analysts say. Recent studies, as well as the 2007 report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) have pointed to some of the likely effects of uncurbed greenhouse gas emissions: rising global temperatures, rising sea levels, Arctic sea ice melt, the disappear of glaciers, epic floods in some areas and intense drought in others. These effects are intensified when combined with other forms of pollution the world's rising population. Humans will face widespread water shortages. Arctic sea ice hits its second lowest summer ice extent on record (the lowest extent was in 2007). The U.S.
