Einen gemütlichen Einkaufsbummel sucht man bei Shop Hop vergeblich... Dafür erleben die kleinen Spieler einen Riesenspaß beim turbulenten Shoppen im Einkaufszentrum, wo mancher enttäuscht vor verschlossenen Türen steht oder ihm das nötige Kleingeld für die gewünschten Waren fehlt. Ausgedacht hat sich das amüsante Spiel für zwei bis vier Kinder der niederländische Spieleerfinder Daan Kreek. Bäcker, Blumenladen oder Buchhandlung: Im Einkaufszentrum lassen sich an jeder Ecke Wünsche erfüllen und das nötige Startkapital wird gleich zu Spielbeginn verteilt. Mit einer langen Liste machen sich die Spieler auf den Weg und müssen für ihre Besorgungen jedes der acht Geschäfte aufsuchen. Ein Drehpfeil, der auf eine von sechs Farben zeigt, bestimmt den jeweiligen Weg durch das Shopping-Paradies. Sieger ist, wer als erster alle Waren erstanden und als gewiefter Schnäppchenjäger auch besonders gut auf die Preise geachtet hat. Manchmal stehen die Kunden allerdings vor einem verschlossenen Shop: Öffnen lässt sich das Geschäft erst, wenn der Spieler oder einer seiner Mitspieler das Feld mit Schlüsselsymbol vor dem entsprechenden Shop betritt oder falls er das nötige Kleingeld hat - für die Öffnung bezahlt. Wer taktisch klug agiert und seinen Mitstreitern beim Einkaufen um eine Nasenlänge voraus sein will, kann mit einem Zug auf eines der Schlüsselfelder auch die Ladentüre für andere versperren und somit einen Einkauf erst einmal verhindern.
Learn about the mysterious Hope Diamond with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series. The 45.52-carat Hope Diamond is the largest deep-blue diamond in the world. In its body of less than one cubic inch, it holds a history dripping with mystery, conspiracy, and celebrity. It is now housed behind three inches of bulletproof glass in the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, and looks out at a world fixated with its beauty and history. Originally 115 carats, the Hope Diamond was discovered in India by the French merchant-traveler Jean Tavernier in the 1660s. Born in 1605, Tavernier was apprenticed to a jeweler at a young age. Later in life, between 1631 and 1638, he made six trips to India to obtain and trade diamonds. He was reputed to have discovered the Hope Diamond in the forehead of a statue of the Hindu goddess Sita in a temple. His alleged theft of the diamond spawned the famed story of the "curse".

Nicknamed the Hawaiian Air Force, the 42nd Squadron, assigned with the 11th Bombardment Group (H) and other squadrons and groups of the 7th Army Air Corps, fly and fight together to win World War II. The 11th Bombardment Group, called the ´´Grey Geese´´, was almost completely wiped out during the attack on Hickam Air Field in Hawaii at the same time ships at Pearl Harbor were in flames. The group recovers, retools, and begins life again with B-24D Bombers that fly in small groups because of their limited numbers, and cover millions of miles of featureless ocean. Their mission is to protect the Hawaiian Islands from future attack, find downed aviators and crews, and lead the Bomber Line from Hawaii to Victory over Japan. 1. Language: English.

Relationships are never always easy. It is normal to hit some bumps in the road or to even have long stretches where you and your partner have a hard time connecting. Couples who are lucky enough to seem to get along more often than not have probably discovered a little secret early on in their marriage. That secret is to show love and affection in little ways often- not always in big ways when things seem to be going badly or when an apology is in order! Imagine stopping on the way home from work and picking wildflowers from alongside the road for your spouse. She may have had a difficult day on the job, the kids were trying her patience or you both simply seem to have lost your intimacy lately. If you were to walk in the door with a fist full of wildflowers you took the time to select just for her on the way home; you will have broken the surrounding atmosphere with love and consideration. You both have the opportunity to start fresh with that one, small yet powerful gesture. If you are going out of town or simply feel like ´ships passing in the night´ because of kids, commitments or work, find a sun catcher, charm or porcelain figure in the shape of a star or a shooting star. Wrap the trinket in a small gift box and fold a note on top of it that says, ´´Wish you were here´´ and place it in his or her travel bag or even in a briefcase or purse. When he or she finds it and knows that you are missing them and thought enough to share that sentiment, it will stir emotions that may not have been awakened in some time. In order to change tedious or tired routines or to inspire intimacy, you might be surprised at how little effort is required. Tape a note on the television that says, ´´Wouldn´t you rather turn me on?´´ instead. If he or she is enjoying a good book, remove the bookmark and replace it with a note that says, ´´I bet you´ll never guess where I´ve hidden your bookmark.´´ Remember the small things you used to do when you first got together that would make your heart flutter and put a twinkle in your eye? Do them again! When you go shopping, for a walk or you´re just sitting together watching TV, hold hands, link arms or put your arm around her. Softly whisper ´´Hey´´ into his or her ear and gaze lovingly into each other´s eyes. If he or she wants to know what you are doing, simply say that you are amazed at how much you love them.
