During the January 2009 transfer window, Tottenham re-signed strikers Jermain Defoe and Robbie Keane, allowing Modrić to return to midfield while retaining his advanced attacking role as a roaming left-sided midfielder. Spurs' other major signing, tough-tackling Honduran (Honduras) midfielder Wilson Palacios, bolstered Spurs' central midfield and gave Modrić more freedom in attack, while Palacios operated as a more defensive midfielder. Using him in his former position from Dinamo Zagreb (NK Dinamo Zagreb) days made him even more effective with inspirational performances against Hull City (Hull City A.F.C.), Commons:Category:Honduras wikipedia:Honduras


record+originating

''' (later '''Hurricane Orlene''') was a catastrophic tropical cyclone that killed between 3,000 and 10,000 people in Honduras in September 1974, ranking it as the fourth deadliest Atlantic hurricane on record. Originating from a strong tropical wave on September 14, the system steadily tracked west-northwestward through the eastern Caribbean Sea. On September 16, the depression intensified into Tropical Storm Fifi just off the coast of Jamaica. The storm quickly intensified into a hurricane the following afternoon and attained its peak intensity on September 18 as a strong Category 2 hurricane (SSHS#Category 2). Maintaining hurricane intensity, Fifi brushed the northern coast of Honduras before making landfall in Belize the following day. The storm quickly weakened after landfall, becoming a depression late on September 20. Continuing westward, the former hurricane began to interact with another system in the eastern Pacific (Pacific hurricane). '''Hurricane Diana''' was the deadliest tropical cyclone during the 1990 Atlantic hurricane season, killing 139 people in Mexico. Forming out of a tropical wave on August 4, the system brushed Honduras before intensifying into a tropical storm the following day. Gradually gaining strength, Diana struck the Yucatán Peninsula with winds of 65 mph (100 km h). Due to the interaction with land, the cyclone weakened somewhat before moving over the warm waters of the Bay of Campeche on August 6. Once over water, the Diana quickly became a hurricane and later reached its peak intensity on August 7 as a Category 2 (SSHS#Category 2) on the Saffir–Simpson Hurricane Scale. Shortly thereafter, the storm made landfall (Landfall (meteorology)) near Tampico, Tamaulipas with winds of 100 mph (165 km h). Rapid weakening ensued once the storm moved over the high terrain of Mexico and Diana diminished to a tropical depression roughly 24 hours after moving onshore. The cyclone later emerged into the Gulf of California on August 9 before losing all tropical characteristics, though its remnants were monitored until August 14 when the system lost its identity over Arizona. Entertainment and cultural displays by artists from countries such as Peru, Honduras, Argentina, Mexico and Colombia offer an authentic look at a culture where countries share language, food and sounds, but have very distinct traditions. Favorites of the festival include the mariachi music, salsa (salsa music) dance, and traditional costumes and food. '''Amado Guevara''' (born May 2, 1976 in Tegucigalpa) is a Honduran (Honduras) football (association football) player who currently plays for Motagua (C.D. Motagua) in the Liga Nacional de Honduras. He is the all-time cap leader for the Honduran national team (Honduras national football team). - Honduras Tegucigalpa Spanish (Spanish language) - '''Ramón Núñez''' (born 14 November 1985 in Tegucigalpa, Honduras) is a Honduran (Honduras national football team) international footballer (Association football), currently playing for Leeds United. Núñez plays primarily as an attacking central midfielder playmaker. He can also play as a Winger or as a second striker. In his homeland he is nicknamed ''El Principito'' meaning ''The Little Prince''. http: www.fifa.com worldcup players player 213876 profile.html In 2011, he had a loan spell at Scunthorpe United. El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica also exhibit an extensive use of the ''vos'' pronoun through the Central American Spanish dialect. The pronoun is also widely used in Bolivia, though the media use ''tú'' more. The '''Honduran national football team''', nicknamed ''Los Catracho (Hondurans)s'', ''La Bicolor'' or ''La H'', is the national team of Honduras and is controlled by the Federación Nacional Autónoma de Fútbol de Honduras (FENAFUTH). They are a rising team in CONCACAF, an ascent that started with their third place finish in the 2001 Copa América, where they were a late invitee, due to a withdrawal by Argentina one day prior to kickoff. In October 2009, they confirmed qualification to the 2010 FIFA World Cup, which was their first appearance in the competition since 1982 (1982 World Cup).

Maracas

on. From time to time, family members wail and cry before a coffin that has been put in a specially decorated room. Then, some of the men tune up the drums to play punta. The women sing. People go in one by one or in pairs to dance. Punta music for wakes is played with traditional instruments. These include first and second drums, maracas, a conch shell and sometimes claves - two hardwood sticks that are beat together. The music is sung in Garífuna with a soloist and chorus, like African music

or a Gospel music choir. Punta music sounds happy, but the words are often sad. "Yesterday you were well. Last night you caught a fever. Now in the morning you are dead," says one song. The rhythm pattern is very complex. One drum plays 2 4 or 4 4 beat. The second drum plays 6 8. This is the beat to which the feet move. The women sing in 4 4 time. Sometimes the songs have counter rhythms. The second drum is steady, but the conch shell, maracas, and first drum improvise solos similar to jazz

Those Ch’ols who remained in the south are distinguished by the name Chortís (Ch'orti' people). Chiapas Ch’ols are closely related to the Chontal in Tabasco as well. Choles are found in Tila, Tumbalá, Sabanilla, Palenque, and Salto de Agua, with an estimated population of about 115,000 people. The Ch’ol language belongs to the Maya family and is related to Tzeltal, Tzotzil, Lacandon, Tojolabal, and Yucatec Mayan. There are three varieties of Chol (spoken in Tila, Tumbalá, and Sabanilla), all mutually intelligible. Over half of speakers are monolingual in the Chol language. Women wear a long navy blue or black skirt with a white blouse heavily embroidered with bright colors and a sash with a red ribbon. The men only occasionally use traditional dress for events such as the feast of the Virgin of Guadalupe. This dress usually includes pants, shirts and huipils made of undyed cotton, with leather huarache (huarache (shoe))s, a carrying sack and a hat. The fundamental economic activity of the Ch’ols is agriculture. They primarily cultivate corn and beans, as well as sugar cane, rice, coffee, and some fruits. ref name "hisschmal" >

Honduras

'''Honduras''' ( The country is bordered to the west by Guatemala, to the southwest by El Salvador, to the southeast by Nicaragua, to the south by the Pacific Ocean at the Gulf of Fonseca, and to the north by the Gulf of Honduras, a large inlet of the Caribbean Sea.

Honduras was home to several important Mesoamerican cultures, most notably the Maya (Maya civilization), prior to being conquered by Spain (Spanish colonization of the Americas) in the sixteenth century. The Spanish introduced Roman Catholicism and the now predominant Spanish language, along with numerous customs that have blended with the indigenous culture. The country became independent in 1821 and has since been a republic, although it has consistently endured much social strife and political instability, remaining one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere.

Honduras spans an area of about 112,492 km² and has a population exceeding 8 million. Its northern portions are part of the Western Caribbean Zone, as reflected in the area's demographics and culture. Honduras is known for its rich natural resources, including various minerals, coffee, tropical fruit, and sugar cane, as well as for its growing textiles industry, which serves the international market.
