The number one reason for contracting AIDS is not using a condom during sex or blood-blood contact with someone that has AIDS. Always use a condom in pre-marital sex. AIDS-caused death is escalating rapidly due to misinformation and carelessness. Any time your open wound comes in contact with AIDS bearing blood, seminal or vaginal fluid (body fluid-to-body fluid) you can contract AIDS.

Mosquitoes carry malaria and other diseases (but not AIDS) and can be repelled with mosquito nets at night. Ask the medical staff above about free mosquito nets for your community.

Hopi kiva construction, underground, supplies a safe and ceremonial home at a comfortable 13 deg. C globally (tundra to equator). The Earth is always 13 deg. Celsius below 1 meter of the Earth's surface, and is ideal space for making your home. Plans for Hopi kiva construction can be found in Hotevilla by Thomas Mails, Dan Evehema. 5X5 meter underground dwelling with concentric hexagon log dome to support earth roof/ ceiling. The supports for the dome need to be very solid and it may be helpful to make the walls of the kiva in a slight V shape so that the walls don't crumble. Be sure and build your kiva at the top of hills; avoid building in an area that collects water runoff (or areas that are wet), or areas with insects, snakes or vermin in the soil! Hopi kivas are a very smart design, and hidden from common view; and provide protection from the elements and conflictual people.

A tarp can be used to collect water, create a solar still, as a tent, if you fold hot sand into it it is a great sleeping bag, even a crude sailcloth.

Ultimate Frisbee is a game that is played with only a Frisbee. It is played with the finesse of American football and the strategy of soccer (what the world calls 'football'). UPA_Ultimate_Frisbee. Since it requires no equipment (except a frisbee) it is like soccer (football) and should be a lot of fun in areas that are short on money. Enjoy! It is a great American sport that is growing in international popularity. FIFA illustrates the rules for football, just for fun (click on 'Laws of the Game'). See Yahoo_Games for more computer interactive fun. I just had to add this site, our common universe- SPACE.com Also, you might be interested in crop circles (Google it). They may be messages for this time from aliens in outer space! See especially Google Images of crop circles. It is very exciting! This should be fun for everyone.

It is time for an end to poverty and suffering. It is time for a worldwide celebration for world peace and for love to fill the air. Help people and have fun doing it! It is time for an end to arms manufacture. Make your voice heard for peace to your local government!

May our Creator bless you, and don't lose faith! Keep your traditional values, and learn from your elders and community. Seth Leonard
