BEWARE! These 10 Scary Urban Legends Will Not Let You Sleep at All Tonight!

We’ve all heard of scary urban legends before. Those stories may or may not have happened, but they still cause goosebumps each time we hear those stories being told. There are also a lot of urban legends told from different parts of the world. Are you ready to read these scary stories?

The Boyfriend’s Death

The Boyfriend’s Death

This story takes on different variations, but the scarier story took place in Paris in the 1960’s. There was a couple who made out in a car. After they finished, the boyfriend went out to smoke a cigarette while the girl waited inside. The car was parked near the Forest of Rambouillet so it will be far enough to not be seen by anyone. Since the girl got tired of waiting, she got out but she couldn’t find her boyfriend. Eventually, she saw a shadow and this frightened her. She decided to get inside the car and drive away. As soon as she started driving, she heard faint squeaks that grew louder. She got even more afraid so she drove faster, but she can’t move. Apparently, it was because someone tied a rope from the bumper of her car to a tree nearby. She tried driving again until she heard a loud scream. When she got out, she saw her boyfriend hanging from a tree. As it turned out, the squeaky noises came from her boyfriend’s shoes scraping from the top of the car.

The Slit-mouthed Woman

The Slit-mouthed Woman

This legend is popular in Japan and China. It is a story of a girl who used to be the wife of a samurai. She cheated on her husband with someone who is younger and more attractive. When the samurai husband knew about this, he decided to slit her mouth from ear to ear. It was said that the wife will suffer from the pain but will never die. She will just wander around the world asking for pity. It is also said that when she meets people, she will wear a mask and ask them if she is pretty. Obviously, people will say yes. She will then remove the mask and show her scars. She will then ask the people if she is beautiful. If they said no, she will mercilessly kill them.

The Choking Doberman Dog

The Choking Doberman Dog

This story seems a bit scary, but is also a story of the dog being a hero. This seemingly bizarre story originated in Sydney, Australia. A couple just arrived home when they saw their Doberman dog choking. The husband panicked and fainted while the woman remained calm and called her vet friend for help. She then arranged to drop the dog off to the clinic and returned home. She then received phone calls from the vet who is screaming. He said that the dog was choking from a man’s finger. It means that someone was still inside the house. Apparently, there really was a burglar who lay unconscious.

The Crying Baby

The Crying Baby

The story revolves around a couple who was driving home from church when they started to argue. There was heavy rain at that time and they found themselves driving over a flooded bridge. They did not realize how deep the water was. The husband decided to go out to ask for help while the wife stayed. She went out of the car though and eventually heard her baby crying. She went inside just to find out that the baby has already been carried away by the water. Until now, it is said that those who have passed by the bridge can still hear the baby crying.

The Slender Man

The Slender Man

We have heard about this story several times and in different versions. There are some stories where the Slender Man is the good guy, but this story reveals just how scary he is. The guy is extremely tall with thin limbs and long legs. The scary part is that he does not have a face. He also has the ability to stretch and bend his arms. He usually victimizes kids. There are a lot of people who have reported seeing a tall man’s shadow standing motionless from afar. He also seemed to appear at the background of children’s photos that tend to disappear with no trace at all just days after the photo was taken.

The Scottish Girl

The Scottish Girl

The story is about a girl who hated her life so much that she decided to commit suicide. The horrible twist was when her family knew about her death, they all died just a few days later. It is said that the White Death, the ghost of the girl, will come to find you if you knew of her story. She will knock on your door repeatedly and kill you as soon as you open the door. Her goal is to make sure that no one else knows about her.

The Greek Soldier

The Greek Soldier

This is not just a scary story, but a horrible story of revenge. There was a Greek soldier coming from to his fiancée after WWII. Sadly, he was captured by other Greeks who had very strong political beliefs and tortured him, before killing him. Following his death, there were stories around Greece about a young and handsome Greek soldier who appeared and disappeared in just a night. His main targets are virgin women or beautiful widows. He would impregnate them. 5 weeks after the baby was born, he will then leave with a letter on a table explaining that he is a dead man coming back to life to spread his seed so that his sons will avenge his death.

The Midnight Man

The Midnight Man

This is not just one of the scary urban legends that happened before, but can also happen to you. This is more like a game that you can start at exactly 12:00 am. You just have to write your name on a blank piece of paper with a drop of blood on it. Then, you have to turn the lights off and light a candle. If you have a wooden door, you have to knock on it 22 times. All these should happen in less than a minute when it is still 12:00 midnight. Then, you have to open the door and close it immediately. The midnight game has begun at this point. You need to keep moving and stay away from the midnight man with only your lighted candle. If the candle is blown off, it means he is near you. Within 5 seconds, it has to be lit again or else midnight man has defeated you.

Maria Labo

Maria Labo

This is a popular urban legend in the central and southern areas of the Philippines. Maria Labo was a woman who killed and cooked her two young children. It was said that she was cursed to become a witch or she was just mentally ill. When her husband came home to look for their children, she said that she has already killed and cooked them. To his anger, her husband got a bolo and slashed her on the face. Since then, she has been roaming around with a scar on her face seeking for her next victims.

The Cosmetic Failure

The Cosmetic Failure

This story happened in South Korea to a girl who was very conscious of her looks. She found a new beauty treatment that involves sesame seeds in bath water. She decided to take a bath on this water but several hours later, she didn’t come out. Her mother decided to force open the door but the girl still refused to. She was horrified to see her daughter crouched in one corner of the room with the seeds lining in every wrinkle and pore in her body with roots growing inside her skin. She also attempted to remove them using a toothpick.

These scary urban legends may or may not be true, but they will definitely leave a scar in our minds that we will never ever forget.

10 Intriguing Facts about the Siberian Lynx

The Siberian lynx is a big cat with a very unique look. It is one of the widest ranging cats in the world. Its eyes are very intriguing and a constellation is even named after it because of its keen eyes. Unlike its cousins the tiger and the lion, lynx are not well known except in areas where they make their home. Here are some facts that will surely help you appreciate the beauty of this little known wild cat.

Many Names

Many Names

The Siberian lynx is known by many names. It is known as the common lynx, Northern European lynx, European lynx, Southern European lynx, Russian lynx, Mongolian lynx, and Siberian lynx, Baikal/Irkutsk lynx. Its scientific name is Lynx lynx. Nope, it’s not a typo. And yes, you are seeing double. The scientific name consists of the Genus and the species. So the Siberian lynx belongs to the Lynx genus and lynx species. The name comes from the Greek word leukos meaning bright or to shine. This is probably in reference to the way cats’ eyes shine in the dark. What an unforgettable name for an unforgettable animal!

Family

Family

The Siberian lynx has a very interesting family. There are four lynx species, namely: the Siberian lynx (Lynx lynx), Canadian lynx (Lynx canadensis), Iberian lynx (Lynx pardinus), and the bobcat of North America (Lynx rufus). Each species is found in different parts of the world and each has adapted to its environment. Of the four, the Siberian lynx is the largest while the Iberian lynx is the rarest of the four.

Habitat

Habitat

The Siberian lynx prefers the cold wilderness and high altitude forests. They like dense forests and also places where there are lots of vegetation cover such as grass, reeds and shrubs. Rocky ledges and crevices are also preferred as spots for making dens. When breeding or during harsh weather, lynx will often take shelter in caves or in hollow logs.

Description

Description

Lynx are medium-sized cats, weighing 15 to 29 kilos and measuring 2.6 to 4.3 feet in length. Its fur is typically grayish but can get darker during the warmer seasons. Its fur come mainly in 3 patterns – spotted, striped or unpatterned. Their main identifying features are the flared facial ruff, tufts of black hair on the tips of their ears and their short or bobbed tail. They also have long hind legs and wide paws that are covered in fur. Their wide paws act as snowshoes and help them move faster in the snow when pursuing their prey.

Behavior

Behavior

Like most big cats, lynx are mostly solitary creatures, and only get together during mating season. Exceptions to this are females with offspring or juvenile siblings which are recently separated from their mother and hunt together for a while before separating eventually. Lynx are crepuscular, meaning they are active at dawn and dusk and sleep during the day and at night. They will typically climb trees or rocks to wait for their prey.

Diet and Hunting

Diet and Hunting

Lynx are carnivores, meaning they only eat meat. Their diet consists of small ungulates (hooved herbivores) such as roe deer, chamois, and musk deer. They also eat rabbits or hares and sometimes take on ungulates 3 or 4 times their size, like reindeer. However, they rarely contest their prey if confronted by other carnivores and will leave the prey uneaten. They hunt by stalking and pouncing on their prey. They like to hide in the dense vegetation and pounce while the prey is busy eating or otherwise distracted. It does not like to chase down its prey especially in the snow and instead wait for it to walk by the cat’s hiding place.

Reproduction

Reproduction

Female lynx give birth to 2 to 4 kittens once a year during the spring. Gestation period is 2 months. The female gives birth in a secluded den that has been lined with fur, feathers, and grass for comfort and warmth. Kittens are born blind, helpless, and are nursed for 4 to 5 months, while being introduced to solid food during the last month. They are more or less independent at 10 months but may still stay with their mother until they are a year old. The young lynx are ready to breed at 2 to 3 years. Lynx may live to 17 years in the wild but can reach 24 years in captivity.

Threats

Threats

The beautiful, thick fur of the lynx is the main reason this species is decreasing in number. In fact, it almost faced extinction in the 30s and 50s, its numbers dwindling to around 700. Another reason is the decrease in the size of their habitat due to urban development which also affects the abundance of prey.

Conservation Status

Conservation Status

At present, efforts at conservation seem to be paying off as their numbers increase tenfold over the past 50 years. It is now a species at risk instead of critically endangered. However, the same threats exist and needs to be protected to prevent its further decline.

Fun Tidbits

Fun Tidbits

Lynx can jump up to 10 feet in the air while pouncing. This is not an animal you want to mess with if you’re a deer or a rabbit! They are very secretive creatures; their presence in an area can go unnoticed for years! They purr! Lynx are excellent swimmers

Just like any other cat, the lynx can be very fascinating. Their distinctive facial ruff and black ear points give them a very regal look. The fact that it lives in the wild and not a housecat makes no difference to lynx fans all around the world who dream of keeping one as a pet.

We may never realize the dream of having a lynx for a pet but let us never give up the dream of a better life for these cats, a life where they are not hunted for their fur, prey is abundant, and their territory is not encroached upon by urban development.

A Look Back at the Top 15 Spookiest Ghost Adventures Nick Groff Episodes. Nothing Beats Lunatic Asylums in Chill Factor

While it may be sad that the Ghost Adventures Nick Groff era has ended, there’s no discounting the fact that Ghost Adventures has had a great run. The series piloted in October 2008 and starred Groff, Aaron Goodwin, and Zak Bagans. The three would spend nights in lockdown at the most creepy and spookiest places they could find with their EMF detectors (think Ghost Busters here), digital voice recorders, night vision cameras and other cool gadgets. Whether you believe that these places were truly haunted, her are 15 of the most memorable episodes.

Bobby Mackey’s Music World in Wilder, Kentucky

Bobby Mackey's Music World in Wilder, Kentucky

The great thing about Ghost Adventures is that they don’t just go to scary and obviously haunted places. Who would have thought that an old Honky Tonk place would be crawling with spirits and paranormal activity? The place is set to be the site of the gruesome murder of a pregnant woman named Pearl Bryan. The head was said to be cut off as some sort of satanic ritual offering. Stranger things have begun to happen after her head was discovered and people became “possessed” by demonic forces. This Ghost Adventures episodes was where the guys met serious problems such as frightening EVPs and shadows. Zak also experienced scratches on his back.

Sloss Furnaces in Birmingham, Alabama

Sloss Furnaces in Birmingham, Alabama

Industrial sites are fodder for ghosts and apparitions. It was not surprising that this particular spot was also a favorite of supernatural and paranormal researchers. The Ghost Adventures crew found this former ironworks site challenging when they saw a partial manifestation, various shadowy forms and other eerie and haunting sounds.

Abandoned Psychiatric Hospital in Cedar Grove, New Jersey

Abandoned Psychiatric Hospital in Cedar Grove, New Jersey

It’s the stuff horror movies are made of. Run down asylums and psych wards have ghosts screaming and possessing people. Ghost Adventures came in to investigate on this one and became one of the most talked about episodes of the season. Nick Groff was locked inside a morgue cooler and his two buddies were not able to locate him immediately. Another scary moment was when Zak felt someone or something touch his arm and the camera recorded the vaguest appearance of a hand. Goosebumps moment, right?

Edinburgh Vaults in Edinburgh, Scotland

Edinburgh Vaults in Edinburgh, Scotland

Edinburgh is one of the oldest towns in Scotland, and undoubtedly one of the most haunted. The Ghost Adventures crew traveled all the way here to experience for themselves the history and mystery of the famous Blair Street Underground Vault. This place is characterized by labyrinth-like corridors and chambers. The trio experienced heightened EMF activities and some physical manifestations. A teddy bear left to appease the spirit of a tormented child actually moved.

Preston Castle in Ione, California

Preston Castle in Ione, California

Reform schools are not much different from asylums and psych wards – they bring in as much spook and chills as possible. This much-feared location was where the Ghost Adventurers experienced an almost possession from a bothered spirit. Viewers were scared and believed that Zak was being warned by an old school nurse not to go to the lower levels. The rest of the team experienced mists and EVP activities.

La Purisima Mission in Lompoc, California

La Purisima Mission in Lompoc, California

La Purisima Mission was a former Spanish residence inhabited by priests, soldiers and native Chumash Indian tribesmen. Unfortunately, this place was not spared from the ravages of war and disease. In modern times, people claim that spirits of its former residents still roam the place – including an all too eager soldier who was almost captured on thermal camera. The Ghost Adventurers also recorded the faintest strains of Chumash traditional music.

Magnolia Lane Plantation in Natchitoches, Louisiana

Magnolia Lane Plantation in Natchitoches, Louisiana

The old South is a place rife with magic and mystery. This beautiful and impressive cotton plantation has deep mysteries and is considered as one of the scariest places on earth. As is common knowledge, colonial America relied heavily on slave labor during the 1700 and 1800s. Magnolia Lane Plantation is no different; but was reputed to have treated slaves worse that the others. Ghost Adventure’s crew saw lights turn off and while inside a locked building. Eerie voices sounding like chants during a voodoo ritual were also heard. It was said that the slaves took revenge on their cruel masters by casting spells on them.

The Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum in Weston, West Virginia

The Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum in Weston, West Virginia

Another lunatic asylum visit from the Ghost Adventurers. This was one of the halloween specials and ran live for seven hours. Fans were ecstatic and fully convinced that everything recorded there was real.  This was also a controversial episode because a guest investigator was there; but overall, viewers voted that this was still one of the best episodes of the show.

Pennhurst State School in Spring City, Pennsylvania

Pennhurst State School in Spring City, Pennsylvania

This is literally a ghost town. It goes by the name of Eastern Pennsylvania State Institution for the Feeble-Minded and Epileptic. This is where people with mental disorders and other illnesses went. It was a place so controversial for supposedly illegal experiments and treatments that it was shut down in December 1987. However, it seems that some residents did not want to leave. The Ghost Adventure crew went through the underground tunnels and buildings. Zak is reportedly hit by a coat hanger while a desk was tipped over during one of the preliminary takes.

Poveglia Island in Venetian Lagoon, Italy

Poveglia Island in Venetian Lagoon, Italy

This small island is one of Italy’s darkest places. Its history goes as far back as the time of bubonic plague. To keep the rest of the population healthy, anyone who was sick was shipped to Poveglia Island with no real care for their welfare. The dead and even nearly dead were just lumped together and burned in mass graves. Shortly after, a mental institution was set up and was run by another mad doctor. This doctor was said to have been killed by the ghosts of the poor tortured souls living on the island. When the Ghost Adverturers locked themselves there for 24 hours, they experienced some of the scariest and angriest apparitions and activities in the series.

Ohio State Reformatory in Masnfield, Ohio

Ohio State Reformatory in Masnfield, Ohio

State prisons also have a reputation for being haunted places. We’re not sure if it’s because of who the people were before they were imprisoned, or of it’s because of how they were treated during the period that they were there. Of the 154,000 inmates that were housed at the Ohio State Reformatory between 1886 and 1910, very few were said to make it out of there alive. The crew experienced plenty of paranormal activity here – including battery packs getting drained, mists appearing, as well as  strange sounds being recorded. Nick Groff was also reportedly attacked by ghosts.

Linda Vista Hospital in Los Angeles, California

Linda Vista Hospital in Los Angeles, California

Another hospital caught the attention of Nick Groff and his Ghost Adventures crew. This time, it was an East LA hospital called Linda Vista. What should have translated  as beautiful view became a site where ghostly apparitions and restless spirits were a common occurrence. It was said that the hospital was where gang members caught in a gangland war were brought to die. EVPs were captured as well as ghostly recordings. Nick Goff claimed that he saw a ghost appear right in front of him.

Rolling Hills Sanatorium in Bethany, New York

Rolling Hills Sanatorium in Bethany, New York

The Rolling Hills Sanatorium is one for the books. This episode of Ghost Adventures clearly captured apparitions of a former patient. Doors were closing and opening  with no one in sight. The highlight of the lockdown was the recorded screams of an old lady from somewhere deep in the building. This is an episode that should be watched over and over again by ghost hunters and paranormal researchers.

Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Louisville, Kentucky

Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Louisville, Kentucky

The Waverly Hills Sanatorium is one of the most haunted old hospitals in the United States. This was opened in 1910 to treat patients with tuberculosis and mental disorders. There were said to be some 63,000 patients who died here – either because they were consumed by tuberculosis, or because they were maltreated by the doctors stationed here. The most haunted place in the whole compound is called the “body chute”. Instead of transporting equipment from the hospital, ot was used to dispose of bodies so other patients will not know who died. During the lockdown, the crew experienced several spirits trying to interact with them.

Salem Witch House in Salem, Massachusetts

Salem Witch House in Salem, Massachusetts

Of course, no list will be complete without mentioning the famous Salem episode. Salem is reputed for the witch hunts and burnings, which took place there centuries ago. This quiet and charming town has a dark past and tormented souls are said to still live here looking for revenge – or release. The team has endured quite a lot of EVP activity and encounters in the Salem episode, and this is one that will be retold in many urban legends.

Ghost Adventures has been around for seven years and Nick Groff has become a household name associated to paranormal activity. His leaving the series will have a profound effect on the show’s fans, especially since he has released statements about some of the scenes and events being fake or staged. He could just be trying to discredit the show and its producers or telling it as it is. Either way, fans will have numerous episodes to go back to whenever they feel the need for a Ghost Adventure.

enjoying-the-quiet-life-take-a-brief-look-on-the-top-10-most-delightfully-distinct-pet-dogs-that-bark-less

When it comes to a first time dog owner one can indulge in choosing across a wide variety, from a sturdy, athletic sheep dog down to a cute, adorable tea cup miniature terrier. One thing to consider though in owning a canine is the type that can easily fit in your lifestyle and without the nuisance of creating much noise or yapping away at night. Concerns normally may prop up but the topmost emerging issue may be having to deal with a noisy and chaotically frantic canine. To get an idea on which dogs bark less than their kind here are some suggestions

The Chinese Shar-Pei

The Chinese Shar-Pei

This happy and solemn fellow carries his barks to a bare minimum. A peaceful personality this breed rarely makes noise even to the most sensitive ears.  Intelligent and stubborn the Shar-Pei dog makes a perfect companion in the family.

The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

This type of dog makes you truly feel like royalty. Its calm, quiet and loyal demeanor speaks volumes even with its small size. House training though must be imposed early on to curb its naturally playful and stubborn disposition.

The Popular French Bulldog

The Popular French Bulldog

This famous bulldog breed has found its home in many celebrities’ domicile. An attractively unique charmer the French bulldog is known for its paunchy face, big round, soulful eyes and ever alert bat ears, all confined to its short stocky stature. This ready mascot is particularly good with kids and can handle walks in parks with much ease and glee.

The Stunning and Beautiful Collie

The Stunning and Beautiful Collie

With its lustrous mane this pet can evidently make for a handsome profile picture. Who can resist this smart and outgoing personality with that shaggy huggable exterior? Training is no doubt easy accompanied by its affectionate and fun loving nature. Highly adaptable its heavy coat it can go from herding sheep to donning it simply as what it is, a gorgeous pet indeed.

The Playful Golden Retriever

The Playful Golden Retriever

Not known for being a nuisance barker, the Golden Retriever is highly active and can keep up with the outdoors. Walking, playing fetch, and other rough and tumble activities are best suited for this breed. Highly energetic, friendly and easygoing it makes for a good jogging partner and chasing along the beach.

The Lonely Saint Bernard

The Lonely Saint Bernard

This large sized dog has actually a sweet, yet stubborn countenance. With proper guidance and introduction to family members and friends they are fantastic to hang around with. The Saint Bernard is also tolerant with other pets and known to be a useful therapy dog.

The Giant-Sized Mastiff

The Giant-Sized Mastiff

It is essentially a protective breed but very loving indeed. Starting as a puppy it can be trained to be obedient to its master. Its serene face and heavy bulk is both a dignified and calm presence in the household. However with its massive size it is best to accommodate such breed in the countryside or suburbs.

The Sleek Whippet

The Sleek Whippet

This dog makes for an unobtrusive pet , and is also known as a fond chaser of cats and other nuances. It can also easily sniff at and take food off your kitchen counter. It can do spurts of running and easily with high bursts of energy in a minute and seen dozing off for hours after in the couch.  This quiet companion loves your pillows and as well as the arms that pet and hold them.

The intelligent Greyhound

The intelligent Greyhound

Easily one of the gentlest in the dog world, the Italian Greyhound is tiny yet bears much intelligence.  Its polite behavior and tendency towards shyness makes this dog conveniently kept in the indoors. They are most ideal for apartment living. Like the whippet though it can go through running and zigzagging and sleeping several hours to recharge. It is not known for high endurance activities though like other more athletic or muscular dogs.

Basenji – The Barkless Dog of Central Africa

Basenji – The Barkless Dog of Central Africa

The Basenji is best known and considered one of the quietest. Its bark is essentially unlike that of any other dogs, as it sounds off yodels, growls and chortles due to its unusually shaped larynx. It bears a streamlined look with its short haired coat, tightly curled tail, alert ears and set of almond shaped eyes. Small and muscular the Basenji is deceptively powerful and can stand on its two feet when curious.  Basenjis are not ideal for first time owners as they are intelligent yet difficult to train so a stretch of patience must be put in place for this.

Relying on these suggestions and also your instinct can command a shorter list to choose from be it for first time or previous dog owners.

Dogs that bark less for sure can avoid the disruption in daily life and in the household.

Becoming a Successful Internet Marketing Company Affiliate

Participating in affiliate programs as an internet marketing
company affiliate is a viable way to make money on the internet
without having your own products and services for sale. In
essence, as an internet marketing company affiliate, you market
other companies’ products and services for a fee.

Generally affiliate programs are either one-tier or two-tier
programs which means if you participate in a one-tier program,
you get paid for referrals that you send to the company for which
you are an internet marketing company affiliate. If you
participate in a two-tier program, you also get paid for
referring other affiliates to the program.

In most affiliate programs, an internet marketing company
affiliate gets paid either a percentage of sales that result from
their referrals, or a flat fee per lead or click-through that
result from their internet marketing efforts.

The defective line of thinking that leads an internet marketing
company affiliate to failure and disappointment is the thought
that being an internet marketing company affiliate is an easy,
get-rich-quick business opportunity. Unsuccessful internet
marketing company affiliates are those who don’t realize that in
order to make money with affiliate programs you have to actively
market them.

What is Affiliate Internet Marketing?

Definition

———–

Affiliate internet marketing is a superb introduction to ecommerce and earning extra money, but according to TamingTheBeast.net, it’s also “a numbers game.”

In a nutshell, affiliate internet marketing is an advertising arrangement, so to speak, in which a company offers to pay you, as an individual or business owner, an agreed sum of money based one of the following advertising results from your site:

– a click through from your web site to the business’ site;

– a fixed amount for a lead, where a visitor would sign up for a newsletter or other special offer; or

– a percentage of the amount of a purchase made by a visitor as a result of a click through from a link posted at your web site.

Often times, affiliate internet marketing allows for a “cookie duration” of 30 to 90 days. What this means is that if a visitor clicks through from your web site to the business’ web site, the visitor will have the cookie in their cache. When the visitor returns to the business’ web site to make a purchase in the given period of time, even if they don’t first hit on your web site, the cookie will still be in their cache, and you will receive your commission from the purchase for that visitor. Prior to signing on to an affiliate internet marketing agreement, however, don’t assume this to be the case in all agreements. It is something to be inquired about prior to agreeing to the affiliate internet marketing program.
