Navarathri (nine nights) is an auspicious Hindu festival where devotees worship the divine Mother Devi Durga, a ten-armed goddess who destroyed evils and brought peace in the uni-verse. The divine power of Durga comes in three forms of energies, considered to be a com-bination of the Trinity of goddesses, Parvathi, (goddess of power and strength), Lakshmi (the goddess of wealth) and Saraswathi (the Goddess of knowledge and learning).

Physical Activity. What is that?
Physical Activity is the concept of moving and train-ing the body in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Physical activity can involve many things such as go-ing to the gym, playing sports, jogging in the park, walking to work or even taking dance classes. Unfor-tunately, as our lives and jobs are becoming more sed-entary (i.e. driving cars, sitting at a desk), society is becoming less active. This is leading to more physical injuries, poorer postures and illnesses.
Hi, my name is Siva M. Sambasivam. I am seven years old and want to share with you all about my experience in Pinewood Derby Car race at Boy Scouts (Cub). So first I got a piece of wood from my Cub Scout leader. I wanted to make a lightning McQueen car out of that small piece of wood. One of the rules was that the car cannot weigh over five ounces. I wanted my car to be exactly five ounces. So I printed out a book about pinewood derby McQueen cars.
