Barcelona is a band from Seattle, Washington. Their sound ranges from upbeat melodic rock to powerful ballads. After two years of intensive touring and re-releasing their independent album "Absolutes" with Universal Motown last April, Barcelona is working on new music and plotting their touring schedule for 2010. It is their goal to share the new material at college campuses across the country before the release of their next record.
Formula One Grand Prix in Barcelona at Circuit de Catalunya was a hot race on a hot day. Mercedes AMG driver Lewis Hamilton won his 4th consecutive race today, and in doing so, broke several records. Today's race put Hamilton ahead of teammate Nico Rosberg in Championship points, and put the entire Mercedes team far enough ahead in Constructors points, they will be hard to beat. Hamilton is like a runaway train on a track heading towards another World Championship title. After a 46-lap race that included hot temperatures, sliding rear ends, and frustrated drivers, fans were clearly invested. Coming in second to Hamilton was Rosberg, third place, was the well-deserved Red Bull driver, Daniel Ricciardo. Sebastian Vettel and Valtteri Bottas rounded out the five.
The stands were filled with fans cheering for hometown favorite Fernando Alonso, driving for the Ferrari team. The team has continued struggling to find their comfort zone, but Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen succeeded getting into the top ten, coming in 6th and 7th, respectively.

Indigenous People Day to Replace Columbus Day! What an Outrage! Let's be honest about the "First Americans" and stop destroying the History of America!
Who Were The First Americans?
Stefan Lovgren for National Geographic NewsSeptember 3, 2003
A study of skulls excavated from the tip of Baja California in Mexico suggests that the first Americans may not have been the ancestors of today's Amerindians, but another people who came from Southeast Asia and the southern Pacific area.
"Our results change the traditional idea that all modern Amerindians present morphological affinities with East Asians as a result of a single migration," said Rolando González-José of the University of Barcelona, Spain, who led the study. "The settlement of the New World is better explained by considering a continuous influx of people from Asia."
The identity of the first Americans is an emotive issue for American Indians, who believe their ancestors were the first to inhabit the Americas.
Controversy erupted after skeletal remains were found in Kennewick, Washington, in 1996. This skeleton, estimated to be 9,000 years old, had a long cranium and narrow face—features typical of people from Europe, the Near East or India—rather than the wide cheekbones and rounder skull of an American Indian.
A coalition of Indian tribes, however, said that if Kennewick Man was 9,000 years old, he must be their ancestor, no matter what he looked like. Invoking a U.S. federal law that provides for the return of Native American remains to their living descendants, the tribes demanded a halt to all scientific study and the immediate return of the skeleton for burial in a secret location.
The matter is still stuck in the courts.
