No Country for Old Men – In rural Texas, welder and hunter Llewelyn Moss discovers the remains of several drug runners who have all killed each other in an exchange gone violently wrong. Rather than report the discovery to the police, Moss decides to simply take the two million dollars present for himself. This puts the psychopathic killer, Anton Chigurh, on his trail as he dispassionately murders nearly every rival, bystander and even employer in his pursuit of his quarry and the money. As Moss desperately attempts to keep one step ahead, the blood from this hunt begins to flow behind him with relentlessly growing intensity as Chigurh closes in. Meanwhile, the laconic Sherrif Ed Tom Bell blithely oversees the investigation even as he struggles to face the sheer enormity of the crimes he is attempting to thwart.

Leonera – In Buenos Aires, the independent college student Julia Zrate awakes in her apartment with gore everywhere, her lover Nahuel stabbed, and his lover Ramiro covered with blood but still alive. Julia is pregnant and is sent to a special prison wing with mothers and pregnant prisoners to wait for trial. Julia befriends Marta, who has two children and helps her to understand motherhood and life in prison. Julia delivers Toms and her mother tries to kidnap her grandson, causing a rebellion in Julia’s wing. When Ramiro, who was also Julia’s lover, accuses her of murdering Nahuel, her expectation of raising Toms is hampered.

Climates: A dowdy university instructor Isa is an inattentive husband to his younger, TV-business wife Bahar. Self-absorbed and selfish, Isa only communicates in the most rudimentary way, while she, similarly, detaches into crying jags and juvenile behavior.

The Crocodile: The film-in-the-film is centered on the figure of Italy’s prime minister and media tycoon Silvio Berlusconi, a subject so controversial that even the public television refuse to produce it. While Bonomo’s private life collapses piece by piece, as he’s divorcing from his wife, and the bank is pressing him hard to pay back his long-standing debts, he finds out that struggling to get this movie filmed is the only thing that keeps him alive.

Economy: Oklahoma

Oklahoma’s economy is based upon the industry of food manufacturing and production, aircraft development and natural gas extraction. Natural gas is abundant in Oklahoma, ranking the entire state second in the national standings. As for agriculture, Oklahoma competes with a 27th-ranking place, with 5th in rankings for wheat production. Oklahoma has also been rated as one of the most business-friendly states in North America, with tax burdens ranking as the nation’s 7th lowest. Oil accounts for at least seventeen percent of Oklahoma’s major economic shifters, but the industry was outpaced at the start of 2007 due to a collapse in the energy industry.

Every individual has talent, that’s for sure. Some are quite talented at sports, some are handy in the kitchen. A select few have interests and hobbies that most people haven’t heard of before. These keep us surprisingly unique from one another. It is another one of the qualities that separate us from other species.

Of these hobbies, however, the art of making crafts is arguably the most rewarding of the selection. Due to the fact that the creator produces something that is three-dimensional and durable. Quite unlike food that gets eaten up, or sports that are for mostly for spectators, handcrafted items will last long after you are gone.

New Yorkers see the world through eyes that have seen it all. This makes it difficult to start up a new business venture in this city. The whole state has that “been there, done that” attitude that keeps them from being enthusiastic from unexpected events. If they ever chance on a piece of art that is awesome, they will probably not show that they’re excited about it.

New Hampshire has always been a State apart. As a fiercely independent state, it has broken off from the hands of Great Britain, six months prior the thirteen first states banding together to form the first bunch in the United States. To this day, people in New Hampshire strive to keep their independence. Their motto is, “Live free, or die trying.”

More or less, the world has settled down from those turbulent times, but we still maintain our capability to live independently. Because of this, a lot of people from New Hampshire try their hand at business. Even I have come to relish being my own boss, and I have found countless opportunities to do so, in the Craft Fairs of New Hampshire.
