A Perfect Pairing: A Comparative Review of Ally Condie’s Matched With Lois Lowry’s The Giver

As I read Ally Condie’s new dystopian tale Matched, I couldn’t help but draw comparisons to the first dystopian YA novel I read, The Giver by Lois Lowry. Both books are coming of age stories of teens, who with the push of an older mentor, begin to see that the “perfect” worlds in which they live are anything but. Though Lowry’s Jonas is a younger male protagonist, Matched‘s seventeen-year-old Cassia Reyes follows much the same progression of doubting, questioning, and finally rebelling against those in charge. Condie’s style, like Lowry’s, is often rich with description, enough to make adult readers sigh with pleasure, but not too much to deter its young adult audience from enjoying the emotional journey of the …

What is the Difference Between an Indoor Banner and an Outdoor Banner?

Marketing through banners have become the latest fashion in the economic world. We can see them all around us when we are outdoors, or indoors. They are the perfect means to send one’s message to the people and a perfect way to promote your product. Outdoor banners are the ones which are sometimes wrapped around the buildings, or just hanging on them, those situated on the side of the road, or surrounding football fields. The most beautiful of them are those that appear at parades, having different shapes, vivid colors and flying above everyone. Indoor banners are the ones found in certain churches, in schools or in the malls. They are more specific than outdoor banners. Being situated on the …

Night Vision Devices — The Ultimate in BackCountry Toys

Many nights in the backcountry are far from dark. A bright moon and a sky full of stars can throw off enough light to allow for reading a book, but add cloud cover, mountains or trees and it gets dark awfully fast. When you need to see in the dark, you have two choices – you either turn on a light, or use one of the many available night vision devices (NVD). The NVD could be the ultimate backcountry toy. Like choosing many other types of technology, choosing the correct NVD is all about how you are going to use it. When most people think of night vision capabilities, they think about spy movies, the military or law enforcement – …

Montana’s Welcome Creek Wilderness Trail: Madcap Adventures for a Spring Training Hike!

Welcome Creek Wilderness – our spring-time challenge in a strange and wonderful little corner of the Montana back country world, just off the blue ribbon trout stream, Rock Creek. We should have thought it through a little more, but just needed to get out and do a nearby trail. So Evie and I threw our three little furry friends, Tina, Koda, and Lucy (miniature Pomeranians) in the van. We loaded up our 13 year old boy (told him we were heading for the Welcome Creek Wilderness Cafe), and headed east up I-90, 20 miles from Missoula to the Rock Creek exit. You head south at the Rock Creek exit on a paved road, winding your way up stream. It’s a …

Montana Moonlight Madness – where’s the moon on Flathead Lake?

Don’t get me wrong – I’m as cranked for a boat ride on Flathead Lake of Montana as the next guy. There’s just nothing quite as relaxing, mellow and laid back as piling onto a party barge pontoon boat and setting out to cruise the lake, especially if there are enough brews and some good eats to fill out the boat trip agenda. It just didn’t occur to me as we set sail that hot summer afternoon in August, departing the Dayton, Montana bay that we were in for an extended journey in search of the moon – of all things! Oh sure, Captain Ron at the helm, had talked about the moon rising over the lake, how awesome the …

Montana Moccasin Ridge Adventure – a Spring Training Hike Bonus

In a light drizzle that chilly Sunday morning the Moccasin Ridge trek was underway. June hikes in Montana frequently offer the rain option and this was no exception. With hikes up that same route almost every weekend year round, a surprise on that familiar route would be…, well, surprising. The trail up Moccasin Ridge is a perfect outdoor gym with a range of cardiovascular workout levels . The workouts range from relatively level stretches to full bore hill climbs, especially in the upper switchbacks criss-crossing the higher faces of the ridge. It’s not a Montana mountain peak but rather a hill among many within the intriguing Sapphire Range, and a Forest Service logging road, across the Clark Fork River from …

Kerala Tour Package

Ayurveda is a perfect ancient science of life; the word Ayur literally means life and Veda the science or knowledge. Ayurveda briefly explains the knowledge of the do’s and don’ts one has to follow, which favours the well being of each individual to lead a healthy, happy, comfortable and advantageous life both physically, mentally and socially.
