Desafío Corona

The Desafio Corona was a stock car racing series in Mexico. NASCAR founded the series in 2004 in conjunction with OCESA, a Mexican entertainment company. The business partnership between NASCAR and OCESA resulted in the creation of a new entity, now officially known as NASCAR Mexico. The former Desafio Corona series is now known as NASCAR Mexico Series.

The series was originally known as MasterCard Truck Series, which was a Craftsman Truck Series look-alike series, founded in 2002.

After the intervention of OCESA, and with the help of SELCA, the Truck Series began to be operated by OCESA Automovilismo, while SELCA was responsible for running the show, being the sanctioning body of the series. After the end of the 2003 season, it was presented at the season finale bottled water glass, the Teleton 100, the new 2004 stock car, a Pontiac Grand Prix, which marked the end of the trucks chapter, and the start of a new era: stock car racing in Mexico.

After that, working together with NASCAR, they started to work on safety aspects of cars, adoption of new rules, and rebuilding existing race tracks, or even building new ones.

Their first season started with a schedule of 14 races, with Mara Reyes (Telmex #1 Pontiac) taking pole position for the season opener in Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez, a race where 26 cars started the race, a big number for Mexican motorsports. This race was won by Jorge Goeters (Canel’s #18 Pontiac), after 90 laps to the 1-mile (1.6 km) oval.

The series then went to Guadalajara and Querétaro uniform football, races won by Carlos Contreras, but bad luck came in the 4th race in Monterrey, where in lap 37 of the race, driver Marcelo Nuñez lost control of his car, and was struck at full speed by Rafael Vallina. Nuñez spent a week in intensive therapy, only to die of complications by the crash, including a broken pelvic bone a perforated lung.

At the end of the season, Carlos Pardo of Team Telcel emerged as champion, ahead of his brother Ruben Pardo (Telmex #2 Pontiac), with Rogelio López (2006 Champ) of Telcel 3rd.

The series’ competitors race stock cars similar to those used in late model classes at short tracks in the United States, with fiberglass composite bodies and spec engines.

Although there are various cars, they are all under the same rules, which are often modified in the course of the season.

In 2005, most previous and current champions of all of the racing series in Mexico moved into the series (with the notable absence of open-wheel champions, like Homero Richards), leaving other closed wheel series with young and inexperienced drivers, so the Desafio Corona decided to include those series in a supporting role. First they included the Dodge Challenge, which included Neon T4 and Dodge Ram pickups, and for 2006, they concentrated on giving a push to the T4 Series. In some races, they included the Clio Cup Mexico series.

In 2007, the NASCAR Mexico T4 Series became the main support series.


The Rokenbok Toy Company was founded in 1995 by Paul Eichen in the United States to create an heirloom quality toy system. The first Rokenbok toys debuted at the 1997 American International Toy Fair in New York City. In 2010 the company made a substantial push researching the effect of media, like Rokenbok, on developing minds. In 2015 the company transitioned into a 501(c)(3) and completed the development of their first 4 classroom specific products called Mobile STEM Labs. Since then, Rokenbok Education has placed Mobile STEM Labs in over 22 states across the country.

Rokenbok makes STEM education more fun and meaningful for students, easier for teachers, and more cost effective for schools and youth programs. Rokenbok Education has focused on developing applied technology and engineering learning experiences for K-8 students. They produce affordable Mobile STEM Labs and curriculum for Schools and Youth Service Organizations. They also provide free or subsidized Rokenbok Education programs to schools and youth organizations serving underserved children. Much of Rokenbok’s work is focused on designing professional development tools that allow teachers and youth services providers to become confident STEM mentors.

Rokenbok is an educational toy that combines a modular construction system with interactive infrared controlled vehicles. The system is expandable and can be added to and changed. Certain surfaces and platforms used in the Rokenbok constructions have a round-stud surface, making the toy compatible with Lego.

Rokenbok features multiplayer how to tenderize beef steak; up to four players can operate any of up to eight vehicles simultaneously. There are many different manufactured vehicles. Players can operate a vehicle by themselves. Control of the vehicles use a controller similar to those of video game consoles with a D-pad for directional control and special function buttons and shoulder buttons for other functions. Rokenbok is non-violent by reinforcing cooperative play patterns that engage children in a positive way. Rokenbok does not use licensed characters or cartoons.

Rokenbok vehicles include the RC TransGripper & Trailer, RC Tower Crane, RC Police Defender, RC Fire & Rescue, Rokenbok RC Dozer, RC Forklift, RC Monorail Freighter, RC Power Sweeper, RC Skip Track, RC Elevator, and RC Emergency Speedster.

RC Monorail

The Power ROK-Lift is a Rokenbok accessory which is used to take a large load of ROKs up at to a high point of a Rokenbok build. The ROK-Lift has a plate on the front as a button to operate an elevating mechanism similar to the RC Elevator. The mechanism contains gears which ride along a Rokenbok piece called “Elevator Racks” with grooved edges designed for the ROK Lift and the RC Elevator. An RC vehicle dumps ROKs into a storage bin on either side of the lift module, then bumps into the button to start the elevating motion; once the module reaches a cap piece, the bins automatically dump into a receiving container or chute, and the module returns to the bottom.

The Night Shift Trailer is a trailer which can be hitched on by any Rokenbok vehicle, and driven to the desired location. The trailer is related to a highway construction sign, meant to direct RC vehicles out of the way of the construction site. The sign features two LED flood-lights, and two LED direction lights, pointing right, left, or both ways. The LED lights are activated by hand.

The Motorized Conveyor is a motorized device which carries ROKs up. The Motorized Conveyor is 12 inches by 4″ in diameter. The Motorized Conveyor uses an optical sensor to detect when ROKs are in the bottom of the lift. There is a spinning wheel with grooves which pushes the ROKs so that they do not get stuck, and so they can be fed into the lift. The original Conveyor belt came in the A/C plug version, where a command deck was needed with an “accessory” port for plugging in the motorized conveyor accessory. Soon after, Rokenbok created a battery operated Motorized Conveyor to eliminate wires and save electricity. The current Conveyors come in orange and brown, and red and yellow.

The Action Sorter was used to direct ROKs in four directions. One sorted them by color, one led to a tipple underneath, and two merged and let to an output for custom chutes to be built.

The Silo was the top of the Pump Station Start Set, as well as the Piston Plan for those who already own a different start set. The silo used a vehicle driving back and forth to push a hanging arm which would raise and lower bins above. These bins would move ROKs from ramp to ramp in two different paths. One path would dump the ROKs to a fast chute below, one would slowly release ROKs at one corner.

The construction system features beams and blocks that interlock to create structures. There are two lengths of beams, one seven blocks long the other three blocks long. These have tabs on the ends that connect to the blocks. Because beams are like blocks, but longer, it is possible to connect a beam at any interval down the beam water bottle holder for running.

Rokenbok contains a user-constructed chute system. This includes the ROK Motorized Conveyor, hoppers, sorting chutes, trap door chutes, along with many other curve pieces. Hoppers will sort the ROK balls in one of two directions depending on where the balls fall. Sorting chutes will force the red ROK balls to fall through a hole that the blue ROKs can’t go through. Trap door chutes have a hinged door that you can open or close, then deciding if the ROKs will move on or not.

The monorail system, introduced in 2000, uses beams and blocks just like the regular building system. There are curved and “s” beams as well to create turns or sloped (for ascending and descending) track. Rokenbok makes riser beams which are two blocks long with tabs on only one end to support the track since the monorail train itself hangs down over the sides of the track for balance and blocks the side connection holes on the beams.

The Rokenbok vehicles, crane, and elevator are controlled through up to four control pads using the RC unit, and unlimited controllers using ROK Star controllers. The control pads, which are similar in design to a video game control pad, consist of three sections, the left contains the four-way directional pad, or D-pad, that controls the movement of the vehicles free water bottle by mail. On the center of each control pad is a button which the player presses to cycle through available units and vehicles that can be controlled (up to eight, chosen by setting a LED light on a number 1-8, presented in a circular fashion, each corresponding to the numbered radio keys in each vehicle on the Classic RC base, or on the ROK star controller, there is a large “R” button the operator presses and holds and then points at a ROK star vehicle to select it). On the right section, there are four function buttons: A, B, X, and Y. They have different functions for each vehicle. The ROK star controller also has some buttons to sound a siren (and change its pitch) and sound back-up alarms. Above each handle, at the top of the control pad, are two shoulder buttons. The left-hand shoulder button will switch to the last vehicle the player used; the right-hand shoulder button will slow the vehicle down. The D-pad and shoulder buttons provide the same function for each vehicle.

Maywood, California

Maywood is a small city in southeast Los Angeles County, California. At 1.18 square miles (3.1 km2), Maywood is the third-smallest incorporated city in Los Angeles County. It is bordered by the cities of Bell on the south, Vernon on the north and west, Huntington Park on the southwest, and Commerce on the east. It is the most densely-populated city in California, and has the highest proportion of Latinos, immigrants, and undocumented immigrants in the county.

As of July 1, 2010, Maywood became the first municipality in California to outsource all of its city services, dismantling its police department, laying off all city employees except for the city manager, city attorney and elected officials, and contracting with outside agencies for the provision of all municipal services. The population was 27,395 at the 2010 census.

The land on which Maywood now stands had been populated by Native American tribes for centuries. The area that would later become Maywood was deeded in 1781 by the Spanish monarchy to Spanish War veteran Manuel Nieto. When the settlement of Pueblo de Nuestra Senora de Los Angeles was recorded, it included the cow pasture (now Maywood) that eventually turned into a rancho.

In 1919, May Wood, a popular young woman who worked for the real estate corporation developing the 2,300 acres (930 hectares) ranch into home tracts, agreed to lend her name to the property. The development of Maywood later survived a bitter challenge to dissolve the prospective city in early 1924.

On September 2, 1924, Maywood’s citizens voted to incorporate and about 300 people turned out for the dedication, including Miss May Wood. By 1924, the population of Maywood had reached 1,000. The city featured homes, stores and a movie theater. In the 1930s, gamblers were successfully removed from the city. Maywood Parks and Recreation built Maywood Park, had its beginnings in the 1930s, when a large meadow was turned into the present day baseball field. The Golden State Baseball Association made Maywood Park its home in the early 1950s.

The Chrysler Corporation had an auto assembly plant in Maywood from the 1920s until its closing in July 1971. It was located at 5800 Eastern Avenue at Slauson, and was generally referred to as the “Los Angeles” Plant. When the city of Commerce was incorporated in 1961, that corner was annexed as were several in the surrounding area.

Maywood Assembly was a Ford Motor Company assembly plant also located in Maywood, that operated from 1948 until 1957. The address was 5801 S. Eastern Avenue, and it was across the street from the Chrysler Assembly factory, and exclusively built Lincoln and Mercury vehicles. The factory was closed and demolished when operations at Maywood and Long Beach were combined into a new factory in Pico Rivera in 1958.

Willys-Overland built its California factory in Maywood, California, in 1929 at the current location of 6201 Randolph Street. Over 900 people were employed at the new $1.5 million assembly plant. Willys-Overland became the second automobile manufacturer to build a major plant in the city. After the United States entered World War II, automobile production for civilians was phased out and in November 1941, automobile assembly at Maywood was stopped. A great many automobile plants were retooled to manufacture war machinery and for three years during the war, the Lockheed Aircraft Corporation rented the plant building from Willys-Overland for that purpose. Equipment was installed for the manufacture of sub-assemblies for Hudson Bombers until the war ended. Willys-Overland began to manufacture the first Jeeps (CJ-2As) for civilians in 1945. As the demand for Jeeps increased, the reconditioning of the plant back to automobile assembly began early in 1947 and by November, Willys was building “West Coast” CJ-2As. By the end of November, 108 Jeeps had been assembled. Jeep Trucks and Station Wagons were incorporated into the West Coast Division’s “final assemblies” production lines in 1948. The Maywood plant produced the entire CJ-3A model production duration and about 5% of all CJ-3As were assembled in California. In 1952, Willys-Overland introduced a new post-war model car, the Aero, and they were assembled in both Maywood and Toledo. The entire plant was shut down in 1954.

Maywood officials were given notice in June 2009, that the city would lose its insurance coverage unless they implemented a 20-point performance plan. Maywood also owed the California Insurance Authority $927,135 and had been making interest-only payments. Mainly because of the troubled history, including multiple lawsuits, and the dubious reputation of the Maywood Police Department, the city’s Liability and Workers Compensation insurer, notified the city in August 2009, that it would cancel its coverage effective July 1, 2010. When the city was unable to find coverage elsewhere, it disbanded its police department, laid off all city employees, except for the city manager, city attorney and elected officials, and contracted with other agencies to provide all municipal services.

An outside audit found that Maywood was losing approximately $620,000 annually from its $10 million general fund budget under the previous seven-year contract with nearby Cudahy, because they had neglected to bill Cudahy for administration, vehicle maintenance or insurance. The firm concluded that Maywood was losing about $620,000 a year, or a total of about $4 million in the last six years. George Perez, Cudahy’s city manager, said Maywood’s “politics have been getting in the way.” Perez said that he and then-acting Maywood City Manager, Paul Philips would agree on a new contract, but the Maywood City Council would then send Philips back for further negotiation. Perez said that negotiations disintegrated in February, after Philips resigned.

Councilman Felipe Aguirre said, “We don’t want to file for bankruptcy. We don’t want to disappear as a city.” Aguirre said filing for bankruptcy was not an option for Maywood because its problems were related specifically to insurance coverage. Several cities in the state have said that they are close to bankruptcy because of the sharp drop in sales and property tax revenues caused by the deepest recession in decades. During a heated City Council meeting in June 2010, opponents of the plan accused council members of mismanaging the city by failing to maintain insurance coverage. Under the plan adopted by the City Council that night, council members would continue to be paid to set policy, but all services would be contracted out. “You single-handedly destroyed the city,” Lizeth Sandoval, the city treasurer, told the City Council. Sandoval, a city employee spoke out as a private citizen, and was laid off as part of the cuts.

Though Maywood officials stopped short of filing for bankruptcy or even giving up the city’s municipal status, the city still faces a serious problem with a huge deficit. The city did keep a few employees as independent contractors when they outsourced most city functions to Bell and police duties to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. In September 2010, the troubled nearby city of Bell agreed to cancel the contract to handle the day-to-day operations of neighboring Maywood. Maywood has been overrun with political crises — from recalls to a city clerk accused of trying to contract a hit man to kill Councilman Aguirre. In early 2006, a newly elected Aguirre called Maywood a “sanctuary city” for illegal immigrants, stating: “I think we needed to amplify the debate by saying that no human being is illegal. These people are here … making your clothes, shining your shoes and taking care of your kids. And now you want to develop this hypocritical policy?” But Maywood’s actions have made the town a lightning rod for criticism on conservative radio shows and websites.

Maywood is located at (33.987864, -118.186553). According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 1.2 square miles (3.1 km²), all land.

It is 8 miles (13 km) southeast from Downtown Los Angeles Financial District and only 2 miles (3.2 km) east of the Los Angeles city limit on Slauson Ave and Alameda St in the Central-Alameda neighborhood.

Several council members from each city are part of this group. The city is offering scholarships to students planning to attend Community Colleges and Universities. This may change with the city reorganization.

Maywood is served by several public elementary schools, including:

Maywood is served by several public middle schools, including:

Maywood is served by several public secondary schools, including:

Most of Maywood is zoned to Bell High School, while a portion is zoned jointly to Bell and Huntington Park high schools. Any student who lives in the Bell or Huntington Park zones may apply to Maywood Academy High School; Maywood Academy, which opened in 2005 and moved into its permanent campus in 2006, does not have its own attendance boundary because it lacks American football, track and field, and tennis facilities. Maywood Academy is a showcase “green” school in the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD). In the time since its opening, it has made the case that, aside from reducing environmental impact, sustainable design can dramatically improve a school’s learning environment, and hopefully, even its attendance rates. Data is being gathered; it is too soon to demonstrate that this “green school” is fulfilling its goals.

In November 2009, the voters in Maywood, in an advisory vote, voted against the acquisition and demolition of properties to build a new high school. The construction of the new school would demolish the homes of over 200 families in Maywood. The voters also voted to have more studies to find an alternative site for the school.

Private schools include Maywood Christian School (K–12) homemade meat tenderizer, an independent private school, Betania Christian School (1-12), an independent private school, and St. Rose of Lima School (K-8) of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles.

Maywood has two major parks and two small “pocket parks”. The existing Maywood Park at 4801 E 58th Street and the new Maywood Riverfront Park at 5000 Slauson Avenue are currently the largest parks in the city, both are in the east side of the city. Maywood Park has a baseball field and the Maywood Activity Center, which opened in 1999. The Parks and Recreation Department currently maintains all of the parks in the city and offers many activities for all ages, seniors, adults and youth. Mr. Aldo Perez is Director of Parks and Recreation. The two pocket parks are Pixely Park and Pine Avenue Park.

The Maywood Activities Center (M.A.C.), is available for general public use and offers a wide variety of classes, specialty rooms, indoor basketball court, gymnasium, pool and place for clubs and classes to meet.

The new Riverfront Park is located next to the Los Angeles River and has handball courts, a basketball court, and soccer field. It also includes an access pathway to the LA River Bike Path that travels through 40 miles (64 km) of Los Angeles County, including Griffith Park and Long Beach A small pocket park is located in the west side of the city, Pixley Park at 3626 56th Street. Two small pocket parks were proposed to the city in 2008, Maywood Avenue Park and Pine Avenue Park are to be built in the future in the west side of the city. As the city reorganizes, future plans are on hold.

The only sports team located in the city is the Maywood Buzz, which features former NBA star Cedric Ceballos. The team plays in the Maywood Activities Center, also known as the M.A.C.

Šumperk (Duits: Mährisch Schönberg) is een Tsjechische stad in de regio Olomouc, en maakt deel uit van het district Šumperk. Šumperk ligt aan de rivier de Desná, 46 kilometer ten noordwesten van Olomouc, en grenst in het noordwesten aan het Jeseniky gebergte. Šumperk telt ongeveer 27.000 inwoners (2015). Omdat Šumperk op het kruispunt ligt van wegen en spoorwegen die toegang geven tot het Jeseniky gebergte, wordt de stad ook wel de ‘Levendige Poort naar de Jeseniky’ genoemd (Zivý Brána Jeseniku).

Šumperk is gesticht in de 13de eeuw. In 1293 werd er een Dominicaner klooster gesticht met een kerk genaamd ‘Maria Boodschap’. Tijdens de Dertigjarige Oorlog (1618-1648) werd Šumperk bezet door de Zweden, maar kwam vrijwel ongeschonden uit de strijd still water in glass bottles. In 1669 werd de stad echter voor een groot deel verwoest door een grote stadsbrand. De stad ontwikkelde zich snel door de aanwezigheid van ijzermijnen. Vanaf de veertiende eeuw ontwikkelde zich hier een wol- en linnenindustrie. In de 17de eeuw vonden er in Šumperk en omgeving op grote schaal heksenverbrandingen plaats; in de stad bevindt zich tegenwoordig een monument en een permanente expositie over de zogenaamde Heksenprocessen. Tijdens de Industriële Revolutie komen Weense ondernemers naar Šumperk, en richten in en rondom de stad grote textielfabrieken op. Begin 20ste eeuw bezit Šumperk twintig grote en middelgrote textielfabrieken, waar damast, pluche, fluweel en Manchester wordt geproduceerd, zowel voor binnenlandse afnemers als voor de export naar geheel Europa. De Weense textielbaronnen laten in Šumperk grote villa’s bouwen in Weense stijl; Šumperk heeft sinds die tijd de bijnaam ‘Klein Wenen’, en maakt een dynamische groei door football shirt online.

In de twintigste eeuw wordt Šumperk getekend door de deportatie van vrijwel de gehele Duitssprekende bevolking in 1945 en de bezetting door het Russische leger in 1968. Vanaf ’68 wordt het historische centrum van Šumperk verwaarloosd en veel mooie gebouwen worden gesloopt en vervangen door geprefabriceerde nieuwbouwflats. De ommekeer vindt plaats na de Fluwelen Revolutie (1989), waarna het historisch centrum van Šumperk door het ministerie van Cultuur wordt uitgeroepen tot ‘Beschermd Stadsgezicht’, en de historische gebouwen zoveel mogelijk worden bewaard en hersteld.

In de stad bevindt zich een herinneringsplaquette voor Jan Zajíc, welke zich in 1968 in brand stak als protest tegen de Russische bezetting.

Er is een rondwandeling uitgezet langs de Weense villa’s en herenhuizen uit de tijd van ‘Klein Wenen’ (deze is verkrijgbaar op het stadhuis).

Šumperk is een zusterstad van Maarssen, Nederland.

Ljubljanska banka

En 2003 la Asamblea Parlamentaria del Consejo de Europa (APCE) fue interrogada para expresar una opinión sobre “el repago de depósitos en moneda extranjera realizado en oficinas de Ljubljanska banka fuera del territorio de Eslovenia, 1977-1991”.

El autor del informe, el profesor E.C bottle holder for running.M. Jurgens (Neth., Soc.) miembro del Comité Legal, menciona que el no repago de los depósitos en divisas ha causado graves daños a un gran número de ahorradores ordinarios.
