By Cathleen Escalante Staff Writer While the 2014 World Cup coming, Brazil is getting ready for it. And Brazilian prostitutes are getting ready for their own close ups — with a lot of English-speaking tourists. Brazilian prostitutes are having to take the task to learn English. No more trying to look up what Ola means in you smart phone or what Ate logo means. Now you can speak to them as if they were your own mother. Prostitutes work in the Copacabana neighborhood of Rio de Janei- ro, Brazil. So men start working on your zumba skills. As the country braces for a flood of soc- cer fans, according to Reuters, Brazilian pros- titutes are signing up for free English classes being offered by a prostitute advocacy group in Belo Horizonte, one of the cities slated to host the World Cup matches. Belo Horizonte's 62,000-seat Mineirao Stadium will host three matches of the Confederations Cup and six games of the World Cup. “This is important for the dignity of the work, the women need to be able to negotiate a fair price and defend themselves,” Cida Vieira, president of the Minas Gerais state Associa- tion of Prostitutes, told Reuters. Here’s a fun fact: prostitution is legal in Brazil. As with past World Cups, they’re expecting a booming in their business during all the soccer tourna- ments. Now let’s hope that no team gets in- volved with any of these fine women. Now they are not just focusing on all my fellow Americans. They now want some cannoli and some French toast. "And for the same reasons we are also thinking of offering free French and Italian classes," said Vieira by telephone. The prostitutes are now expanding the intelligence to persuade the hot blooded Ital- ians and the romantic French. Well, why can’t they just know the basics like; hello, how are you, yes, no, thank you, in all the languages. But if they want to learn the hard way, let them struggle. Let’s keep in mind though, that some of the prostitutes are not even from Brazil. "I don't think we will have problems persuading English teachers to provide services for free," she said. "We already have several volunteer psychologists and doctors helping us" added Cida Viera. She said classes are expected to begin in March and last up to eight months. Vieira said that 20 prostitutes had already signed up, but that she expects at least 300 women to participate in the classes once they started. Now this is where the problem might come. There are more than three countries that are coming to Brazil. The undefeated team Spain in coming, Africa, Canada, Mexico, Eng- land, Russia, China and the list keeps on going. What they should invest in, is flyers. Yes flyers, have them in bus stops, airports, men restrooms, clubs, local restaurants, hotels, local stores, so the tourists can get one or a few that they can read. Or just make an English flyer. English is one of the most known languages. What should be an easier way to approach this situation? Well what’s the point; this will definitely help the economy in Bra- zil.

It leads some students to question what our school would be like without the program. Some of the responses from the stu- dents went beyond the issue of cyberbullying at our school and went into depth about bullying as a whole here at Montwood. The responses were for the most part positive and stated that if there is bullying at school, no one ever sees it or has heard of it and the environment here makes them feel safe. What struck a chord in everyone’s thoughts though was one comment made by one person. They said, “Something that will never completely go away is some sort of cruelty between teenagers or any humans.” The whole class seemed to agree with this and it made them even further question what our school would be like without Olweus. After further reflection on the comment and on the program, the students came to an agreement when they realized that even if we cannot get rid of cruelty completely, at least our school is making the effort to try. Administra- tion at Montwood do all that they can to provide a safe and healthy environment for the students and despite the questioning of the rules or of the Olweus program, at the end of the day the students know it is all for the best.

Fall has been known as the entertain-ment season, more concerts and events come up in or around our city than any other time of year.Nowwecandefinitelylookforwardtomore than just going to the movies or playing video games with our friends. All types of en-tertainment for every individual will be coming up so be on the lookout for acts and events that interest you. One band that recently came to the Las Cruces Pan American Center was the Black Keys. They attracted a crowd of 6,700 people of all ages before heading out on the road to play at the Austin City Limits Festival. During the concert they played 19 songs from their album “Brothers” as well as their latest album “El Camino.” Another concert that is sparking an

interest in country lovers all across the El Paso/Las Cruces area is George Strait’s farewell tour that hits the Pan American Center on April 6. He previously performed at this venue back in 2011andissuretomakehisfinalshowhere,which will be his 12th at the Pan Am Center to date, one to remember. Country fanatics are also excited for his opening act, memorable country star Martina McBride. The EDM scene has been sweeping across the country and across our city. This fall we will be seeing many DJs in our area such as Laidback Luke on Friday, November 2 and Ar-min Van Buuren on Saturday, October 13. Nero will also be performing at Electronic Voodoo on October 26 along with Killsonik. Be sure to get your tickets soon because these shows are expected to sell out fast. Moving out of the concert aspect of entertainment we also have many festivals that come up this fall. One of them is Chalk the

Block which takes place downtown in October. This festival features chalk art from various art-ists all across the city. The artists use this time to showcase their talents as well as compete to have the best drawing in different categories. Vendors also crowd the downtown area sell-ing food and other things. Despite the festivals name there is much more to it than just chalking theblock.Concerts,firedancers,andactivitieswill keep you entertained as you look at all of the chalk art. So as you can see, this time of year brings more than just trick or treating and Thanksgiving. With all these events coming up saving a little extra cash can really come in handy if you and your friends want to have a good time doing something out of the ordinary like going to a concert or festival; And with great acts and events like these there is no way you can pass them up.

Coming This Fall…

# Real Talk with A&MDear A and M I did the most horrible thing any friend could do, I was at a party with a friend from a different school. So after a while I got bored because I didn’t know anyone, but then I saw my best friend’s boyfriend. So naturally I went to say hi. Him and I are really good friends aside from his relationship with my best friend. I have always had a little crush on him but I tried to stop liking him after my friend revealed her feelings for him stronger. So, at the party we caught up, and things got touchy feely. Then by the end of the night he expressed his feelings for me so I just went in for a kiss. At the moment it felt so right but the day after Iwasfilledwithguilt.I’mstuckonwhethertotell my best friend or to keep it a secret.Sincerely, Twotimingsista

Dear Twotimingsista,I can see that the situation you’re in is very un-comfortable and any person would say that tell-ing your friend is what any good friend would

do, but not everyone has been in that position. Myself included, but if I were in your position before doing anything drastic, confront her boy-friend and come up with an agreement. Obvi-ously discuss the kiss and what it meant. Was it a mistake or is there something more between you two? Don’t repeat another kiss, if you both feel that there’s a connection, then tell him he needs to settle things with his girlfriend because that isn’t fair for her. If the kiss was just a mis-take then I’d keep it on the down low. I would also separate myself from him. Obviously you still have feelings for him and subconsciously you’ll always wish they weren’t together. So try and move on! Like they say there’s plenty of fishinthewaterespeciallyonesthataren’tdat-ing your best friend. Sincerely, M

Dear Twotimingsista,Sometimes you need to take in consideration what you value more your friendship or a boy.

First of all, I can tell you’re a decent friend becausethefirsttimearoundyoubackedoffsoit shouldn’t be that hard the second time around. Everyone makes mistakes but make sure you learn from it and back off. I would all together stop talking to him and keep it a secret. I re-ally wouldn’t pursue him because if he cheated on her what makes you think he won’t do that exact same thing to you, once a cheater always a cheater. Especially because temptation is all around he obviously can’t be strong against it if he kissed you. Who knows maybe if it’s meant to be, things will play out like you want them to and you might date later but for now pick your friendshipbeforethisboy.You’llendupinabetter place and you won’t ruin a perfectly good friendship.

Sincerely,

A

ThiswasmostdefinitelypushingtheRamsunderpressurehavingadifficulttimepushing themselves to their limits. As for El Dorado, they had two touchdowns, but unfortunately for them, they missed both of them. Once the third quarter came, all of Montwood and El Dorado’s crowd had lost complete hope for Montwood’s victory. Montwood’s players looked as if they were crushed both mentally and physically. They had no capability of pushing through any

longer. Every last energy that they had left in them seemed to have completely van-ished as they came to their last few minutes of the game. Suddenly, the fourth quarter came, El Dorado’s crowd went from being loud and going crazy, to quiet and not sure what was going to happen next. During the fourth quarter, Montwood intercepted El Dorado’s hopes and dreams of winning the game. Although everyone, including Montwood fans felt that El Do-rado was going to win, Montwood brought home another victory. Montwood ended up defeating El Dorado, 35-34. Montwoods crowd went completely wild and were in complete awe as the Rams came back within the last nerve wrecking minutes that were left in the last quarter. Montwood was able to add an additional victory against the El Dorado Aztecs to their triumph and glory..

The week coming back from intersession is the most exciting week of the year. People like to show off how much school spirit they have and they go all out on their spirit days. The seniors are the ones who es-pecially look forward to this week. Since it’s their last homecoming week they go all out on every day.

The underclassmen got different dress up days than the seniors. Monday was Rock of Ages, Tuesday was Psychedelic neon day, Wednesday was love sta-tus day, Thursday was throwback day, and Friday was spirit day. For seniors Monday was either risky busi-

ness or outta this world day, Tuesday was twin day or toga day, Wednesday was pink or Hawaiian day Thurs-day was cowboy day and Friday was black tie affair day. A lot of the students participated in these dress up days.

At the end of the week we had our homecoming game. This year we played Socorro High School and ended with a winning score of 42-7. Finally, Satur-day night we had our homecoming dance here in our school commons. A lot of people showed up and had a really good time.
