Posted on Minggu, 31 Juli 2011 | 0 komentar
Paint ball is growing to be a very popular game for all ages. There is lot of different things that you can do with a paint ball gun. Paint ball is considered a sport because it does involve a lot of physical activity. The object of the game is to shoot small balls of paint out of a paint ball gun and successfully hit your target.

There is a lot of running and jumping when you are playing with a paintball gun. There is a lot of physical movement to try and avoid being hit by the paint ball pellets. The person that is most covered with paint is none the less the loser of the game.

There are a lot of places that you can go to play with your paintball gun safely. There are so many obstacles that you have to go through when you are playing this sport. You can play on a course or you can play this fun sport in your own back yard.

There are many things that you are going to need in order to play paint ball. It is not going to be cheap to play this sport, as most of the equipment is costly. You will need to have a paint ball gun, paint balls, air for your tank, paint ball mask, and of course the will to have fun. You can get most of these items at a sporting goods store in just about any area.

There are a few rules for paintball. The first thing to remember is that you has to play safe. You do not want anyone to get hurt when playing after all it is all in fun. Masks have to be worn at all times to make sure that your eyes and face are protected. You should always know what you are shooting at and never just shoot at anything. One thing to know is that the paintball guns need to be tested on a regular basis.

Paintball is one of the most fun and safest sports there is today. As long as people play along with the rules and wear the correct safety gear, anyone can have a lot of fun and exercise playing paintball. There is no reason why you should not get started on this fun and exciting game. You can have fun while you burn some calories at the same time.

Children and adults can play. You should never shoot at animals or people that are not playing the game. Although this is just a game, a paintball gun can potentially harm someone that is not expecting a hit and does not have safety gear. Always play safe and fair and it will be a fun sport to play.

Do I Need Aerobic Clothing?

Posted on Sabtu, 30 Juli 2011 | 0 komentar
One of the most motivating things you can do when it comes to starting a workout is to buy yourself some nice aerobic clothing. This motivational tool is quite useful for many people who want to get started on their exercise program in style.

There is more to consider than just looks when it comes to aerobic clothing so making a rash decision may lead to your tossing the outfits on your exercise machines to collect dust.

It is important to remember that your aerobic clothing is an integral part of your workout. You may not believe this at first but bear with me. Wearing an outfit that is inappropriate for the routine will make you very uncomfortable. You will be less likely to return to the gym or even your basement if the exercise routine and your aerobic clothing are uncomfortable.

We tend to avoid unpleasant situations. If you engage in an exercise routine that is demanding and your aerobic clothing is getting in the way, you will be less likely to repeat the routine. Your choice to forgo the workout is not necessarily due to the workout itself. You aerobic clothing was uncomfortable and it interfered with your enjoyment of the exercise.

Remember to keep it loose. Tight fitting aerobic clothing may limit your mobility and some can even restrict blood flow. There is no point in working out if you do not have a full range of motion available to you. You also want to stay well ventilated and you definitely want the blood flowing naturally.

We all know that black is slimming but black is a no-no during summer workouts. Choose aerobic clothing that is light in color. This reflects the sun away from you. Black absorbs the sun (and the heat). If you are too hot and sweaty you may become lightheaded and tire out way too quickly to reap the full benefits of your routine.

You are supposed to sweat but you don’t want to start sweating before you have even stretched your muscles. Getting overheated is a big danger when engaging in physically demanding activities. Wearing light aerobic clothing will help you stay cool and energized during your routine.

People who live in cooler regions benefit from layering their aerobic clothing. Keep lighter materials close to the skin and put fleece and other heavier items over that. You can always peel a layer or two off if you feel overheated.

How To Make Lighter and Thinner Magnesium Components?

Posted on Jumat, 29 Juli 2011 | 0 komentar
Magnesium is the lightest structural material offering very good damping characteristics, weldability and excellent shielding against electro-magnetic interferance, and is unlimited in supply. It has been an excellent material for making portable electronic and telecommunication devices, and automotive and aerospace equipment such as MD player casings, chassis for cell phones, video cameras and notebook computers, automotive gear housings, car wheels and engine blocks.

The most common methods to produce magnesium parts are die casting and thixomolding processes. However, these runner and gating processes provide a low material yield of only 30% for thin-wall casting and can only produce thin walls of between 0.7mm to 1.2mm.

If we can form magnesium parts from sheet metal just like metal stamping of steel and aluminum parts, we can achieve better material yield of about 80% and possibly safer operation due to the lower processing temperature. However, magnesium is known to be non-formable as it is very resistant to deformation due to its hexagonal close-packed structure. The only way is warm forming of magnesium as deformation of magnesium above 225 degrees Celsius will cause additional slip planes to become operative.

Extensive process research in this area have resulted in a few warm forming hydraulic presses available in the market for draw forming. Recently, research in warm draw forming of magnesium to make cell phone chassis has successfully shown that 0.4mm thin walls can be achieved consistently. Metallographic tests of the chassis have also demonstrated that there is zero porosity and increased rigidity.

While the current warm forming press systems are complicated to operate as they require the preliminary building of stroke and force profiles for the specific products using data acquisition modules and forming simulation softwares, the increased replacement of aluminum and plastics with magnesium for handheld electronic devices may well accelerate this process. Progressive early adopters of this technology would have a first mover advantage in the competitive global manufacturing industry.

Wakeboarding (1)

By Vigdis S. Aas

What is wakeboarding? It was created by combining water skiing, snow snowboarding, and surfing. Before it was called wakeboarding people called it surfing. Wakeboarding is when you have person being towed behind a boat, looking much like water skiing but they just a board that looks much like a snowboard. The board itself looks like a cross of a snowboard and a skateboard.

The board can float and is typically around 130-147 cm long and about 45 cm wide. They are wider and shorter than your typical snowboard.

In addition, unlike snowboards that are concave, wakeboards are bowed. When it comes to the boat, they are like some to water skiing boats, but the rope is normally mounted on a tower about two meters about the water line and the boat is usually weighted to give a larger wake.

A wake is used as ramps are used in many other board sports. To steer the board you must use a combo of direction and cutting edges into the water. A rider can move outside of the wake and then cut rabidly in towards the wake, which will allow it to launch the rider into the air. They are many techniques and cuts that are used in the sport. Over the years, people have come up with various tricks like the elephant or tantrum that has made the sport a very interesting one.

This is much like a freestyle sport and has become very popular on the shores. It has even been recently added to the X games. Both woman and men are allowed to compete in the X games. When it comes to the X games, it’s much like the competition of all competitions.

It’s a championship and allows the riders to get creative and they are pressured to show the judged something more spectacular than any other rider. When it comes to the X games, each person must show some kind of trick that they have mastered and feel comfortable with.

They must make their act stand out above the rest and they must take in consideration many factors when it comes to planning their show. The sport itself offers an opportunity for self-expression or art. Wakeboarding is limited to beginners, but with practice, you can be doing tricks like the pros.

It is important as a beginner to not push yourself too hard. Learning too much at once can cause harm or flaws in your shows. You will need to allow yourself to take the time to learn each trick before going on to another one, because the added pressure will become more stressful when the showdown begins. It can be a fun sport to learn, but it can also be dangerous like any other water sport.

How To Buy Used Metal Detectors

Posted on Rabu, 27 Juli 2011 | 0 komentar
Once you have decided to buy a metal detector, you have to decide whether you want to buy a brand new instrument or a second hand model. If budget is a constraint, a used metal detector will be a better option. If you are wondering how to buy a used metal detector, here are some useful tips, which will guide you in your purchase.

What are the types of metal detectors?

There are various kinds of metal detectors available in the market, meant for different purposes. The most easily available ones are gold detectors, coin and jewel detectors, relic hunting detectors, beach-hunting detectors, and underwater metal detectors.

What are the factors that I should take into account before buying a used metal detector?
Consider the following points before your purchase:

· The amount of usage of the detector: If you plan to use it for a new hobby, choose an instrument offering various features.

· Location of usage: Decide if you plan to use it on the beach, below water or in the forest.

· Decide on who will use it: For a family use, there are detectors with adjustable arm cups and separate pouches to place the electronic box.

· Budget: Compromise on your budget to some extent so that you can buy the one meeting a majority of your needs.

Where should I buy?

A secondhand metal detector is a good bargain for your money. However, ensure you buy it from a reputed dealer rather than from an advertisement in your local newspaper.

To Pee or Not To Pee

Posted on Senin, 25 Juli 2011 | 0 komentar
The eternal question of wetsuit urination

If it hasn’t happened to you already, it will. You descend to 15 feet, and you’ll feel the sudden urge. You can’t hold it. And there’s no way you can get to a bathroom without spoiling the whole dive. So you consider – if I’m in the water, my urine will just dissipate and dissolve and disappear. Is it OK to whiz in the wetsuit?

The simple answer is “yes”. Take a leak.

The truth is, there is no health risk to watering the neoprene. Many people do not realize that urine – unlike feces - is sterile, unless you have a urinary tract infection. It contains a lot of dissolved bodily waste (mainly nitrates), but poses no health risk to you. The only symptom of wetsuit whizzing is temporary warmth in your vicinity. But beware, if your urine is dark (a sign that it is probably strongly odorous as well), you might get a reaction from other divers, especially if they happen to swim through your “yellowish cloud of warmth.”

As a frequent diver, your best strategy for dealing with this common situation is counterintuitive: drink more water. A hydrated diver can urinate in their wetsuit and their urine will not be dark or smelly. You have surely noticed the difference between your morning pee and your pee after (or during) a long night of drinking. Dehydration is very common, yet minimal dehydration is tolerated and goes unnoticed by most people because of the symptoms are fairly mild. If you are properly hydrated, your urine is clear and odorless. A practical diver should drink plenty of fluids the night before and the morning of a dive, to ensure adequate hydration.

You may hear divers joke about “warming the wetsuit”. The warmth offered by wetsuit irrigation is comfortable, but temporary. Yes, when you pee you will feel warm initially, but in the end it will actually lower your overall body temperature.

You might notice that even though you relieved yourself before the dive, you need to go again when you get down to 20 feet. Why do you need to pee again? You may be experiencing a phenomenon called immersion duiresis: as a response to an increase in pressure, your body feels compressed and your kidneys start to produce urine.

Since you already rinse your wetsuit after each dive, you don’t need to be concerned about odor from your underwater urine. An unrinsed wetsuit develops its lovely stink from algae and crud in the water, not from your urine. Tinkle away!

Winter Park Ski Resort – Colorado’s Secret Playground

Posted on Sabtu, 23 Juli 2011 | 0 komentar
If you are planning a ski trip look no further than Winter Park Resort in Colorado. Sure there all lot famous resorts here in Colorado that are household names across the United States, but these well-known resorts are plagued with crowded ski slopes and lift lines. Which is why Winter Park Resort is known as “Colorado’s Favorite”. Coloradoans frequent this ski resort more than any other in the state, due to the fact that it is one of the biggest resorts, with the most snow and fewest tourists. It also helps that it is only 67 miles from Denver.

Winter Park Resort is also the home of the legendary Mary Jane. Mary Jane was named as one of the top 5 resorts in North America for bump skiing according to Snow Country Magazine. It is not for the faint of heart, as there are no green runs anywhere on the “Jane”.

Parsons Bowl takes you above the clouds… and the tree line. The bowl offers intermediate to advanced ski runs, and happens to be a favorite of the locals. Once you get to the top you will be looking for your camera, and a warming hut.

Ski Magazine ranks the terrain parks & pipes of Winter Park Resort in the top 10 of the nation. The Railyard is one of the longest terrain parks in Colorado, and covers 15 acres over a 3,650 foot stretch of rail-grinding madness. For beginners there is the Jack Kendrick, which has extra wide rails and non-threatening jumps to help advance to the next level.

There are plenty of great restaurants and bars on the mountain, and like the lift lines, the crowds never seem to be a problem. You can also head to the actual town of Winter Park after the lifts close. It is a quaint little strip of restaurants, bars and shops. There is actually a very good sushi bar in town that often surprises people with its great food and reasonable prices.

Round off the day with a trip to the lighted tubing hill in Fraser. They provide a lift, warming hut and the tubes. And if you would like a day away from the slopes, you can enjoy a snowmobile tour up to the top of the Continental Divide, or get down right old fashioned and jump on a dog sled.

Ski-in lodging can be found just a five minute walk from the base of Winter Park Resort. Slope View Bed and Breakfast offers views of the Continental Divide, unique amenities and a knowledgeable staff. 970-531-2386

Ten Tips on Handicapping the Kentucky Derby

Posted on Jumat, 22 Juli 2011 | 0 komentar
Here is the Top 10 list of what to do or when handicapping the 132nd Kentucky Derby Dave Letterman style, so pay attention:

10. Don't wait until Derby Day to decide what you can afford to wager and the kind of bets you will make. Set a total dollar amount and stick to it, win or lose, unless one of your selections is scratched.

9. Don't try to assimilate so much information that you become confused. Stay with the handicapping formula that works best for you.

8. Thoroughbreds that did not race as a 2-year-old have not smelled the roses since the 19th Century. Apollo did it in 1882. Other winners of Triple Crown races that year: Vanguard in the Preakness and Forester in the Belmont.

7. No runner with only four career outings has won since Exterminator in 1918. There were so many horses (26) in that year's Preakness, it was run in two divisions. The winners: War Cloud and Jack Hare Jr.

6. Avoid horses with a pedigree that does not display both stamina and speed. In 19 of the past 131 derbies, 13 horses with Buckpasser in their bloodline finished first or second. Ironically, quarter-cracks kept him off the Triple Crown trail, but he won 13 in a row after running second in his 3-year-old debut. His victories in 1966 included the Travers, the American Derby, the Woodward, the and Jockey Gold Cup.

5. Only one horse has visited the winner's circle without taking a stakes race during his or her early career since Proud Clarion in 1967: Giacomo last year.

4. The last winner after running fifth or worse in the final prep was Iron Liege in 1957. Only two horses that were fourth in their last prep since the 1950s won: Thunder Gulch in 1995 and Sea Hero in 1993, both in the Blue Grass.

3. Since 1947, only Sunny's Halo won off two preps - the 1983 Rebel Stakes and Arkansas Derby. Forget about horses with one or no stateside preps.

2. Don't waste your money betting the post time favorite to win. Since Spectacular Bid lived up to his odds in 1979, only two have done the same: Smarty Jones in 2004 and Fusaichi Pegasus in 2000. Trifectas offer much bigger returns even when one or two low-priced horses hit the board.

1. Forget about the horse-for-the-course angle. In the past decade, no 3-year-old that had one or more starts at Churchill Down repeated in the Run for the Roses. The average finish of nearly 50 runners, including 21 that had previously won over the main track, was well off the board.

My Hiking Trip to Glacier National Park

Posted on Kamis, 21 Juli 2011 | 0 komentar
My girlfriend and I are preparing to go on a hiking trip to Glacier National Park. We are going to do some camping along with staying at various small hotels and inns.

I have been involved with doing some aerobic exercise my whole life, either by walking or biking. When I told my husband the plans to go on a hiking trip with my friend he laughed. He does not feel either one of us will last two days. I shared this with my friend, who is in shape, but does not consistently do any aerobic exercise; she took this as a challenge.

She started looking into the best aerobic exercise to prepare for our trip. I tried calling her during our lunch breaks, but could never find her at her desk because she was out walking. Two evenings a week she went to aerobic exercise classes. I went over to her apartment and found three DVD’s on various aerobic exercise programs. The woman is obsessed. We discussed that when we first planned the trip we were going to hike for short distances each day to take in the beautiful surroundings, now she was looking at this as an aerobic exercise challenge! She told me that I better start pushing myself more to build up my strength so that I would be able to keep up with her.

I went home and told my husband that I feared our relaxing; get in touch with nature trip is going to turn into a triathlon. He thinks this situation is quite humorous. At least my friend is improving her health with the aerobic exercise, but I was really not planning on having to run up a hiking path. I purchased an aerobic exercise tape for my walkman and started pushing myself more. The first few walks I worked harder trying to deal with my frustrations towards my friend and husband, but as my strength improved and my lung capacity developed I found I was enjoying this higher level of aerobic exercise. When I went shopping for clothes for the trip I found that I had dropped a pant size. My clothes at home were fitting looser also. I told my husband that this was my revenge for his challenge, a whole new wardrobe. He does not mind because he thinks I look great.

As the date of our trip approaches we are getting more and more excited about going on our adventure. Both of us look and feel better since we increased our aerobic exercise. If you hear about two women racing around the hiking trials in Glacier National Park, I am one of them.

Protect Your Eyes With Biking Sunglasses

Posted on Rabu, 20 Juli 2011 | 0 komentar
If you like riding your motorcycle or enjoy biking in general, you will really benefit from wearing biking sunglasses. Not only do the biking sunglasses protect your eyes from the sun and make it easier for you to see, but these sunglasses made for cycling or motorcycling also protect you from the wind and bits of dirt and dust that fly around.

Although biking sunglasses are mainly for fashion, they are essential for any biker that has sensitive eyes or wear contact lenses. Most cyclists wear goggles, and motorcyclists wear helmets, but many of them also wear their regular prescription sunglasses as cycling sunglasses. Oakley was the first company to come up with designer sunglasses such as biking and cycling sun glasses. They have truly polarized lenses to offer the best clarity of vision, which you need when you are on the road.

Since Oakley came out with its line of designer sun glasses for those involved in outdoor sports, many other designers have jumped on the bandwagon. The latest line of biking sunglasses to hit the market make you look like an insect with the design of the frames. Cyclists like them though because they are tight fitting and offer the protection that they need. These cycling sunglasses are really expensive and are used mostly by people that engage in professional cycling, such as the Tour de France.

Many cyclists or motorcyclists do not pay the high prices of designer biking glasses, which could run you $500 or more. According to the experts an ordinary pair of wraparound sunglasses does just as well. If you want biking sunglasses for when you ride your motorcycle, you would benefit from a pair of Oakley Sun glasses because they are so strong. With cycling, though, you are usually not going fast like on a motorcycle and don’t have to worry about debris blowing into your eyes.

Some of the brand names associated with biking sunglasses, in addition to Oakley, include such designer cycling sunglasses as Bolle, Rudy Project, Native, Adidas and Zeal. Most of the designers claim that their style of cycling sun glasses comes from their own racing experiences and what they wanted in the line of sunglasses. With each of these you can choose from different varieties of frames and colors of lenses. Most of the lenses are plastic so that they will not shatter easily if you get hit by something as you are cycling.

So if you need biking sunglasses you have lots of choice.

Which RC Car Is Right For You

Posted on Senin, 18 Juli 2011 | 0 komentar
RC Cars offer all the excitement of motor racing at a fraction of the cost. They also offer a safe form of motor sport and allow youngsters to begin to understand car control at a very young age.

There are various types of RC cars that are suitable for racing, but the two main types are the gas-powered cars and the electric powered cars.

They both offer different benefits, and there will always be those who believe one form of motivation is better than the other.

The gas-powered cars are generally a lot more powerful and offer the ultimate in performance but they are a lot noisier and the motors do require tuning. Gas powered cars can sometimes be quite temperamental to tune and require some degree of knowledge to extract their ultimate performance.

The electric powered cars on the other hand are relatively simple to race and maintain, but they are limited by the charge in their batteries.

Electric powered RC cars are a lot quieter than gas powered cars and this might affect your decision if you are planning on using them in the local neighbourhood and want to keep your neighbours as friends.

Most of the top end RC cars offer all the suspension, gearbox and differential tuning as a full size race car, so the beginner RC car racer might feel a little overwhelmed by the amount of tuning that is required to get the best out of their race car.

Like anything else, it is a process of learning and RC car owners will soon find that trying different race settings can make a huge difference to the performance of the racing car.
Once familiar with the changes that can be made to the car, the owner will be happy that these variables have been built into the race car, offering those with the most testing and knowledge to have a decided advantage come race day.

It would be wise to look at the race facilities in your local area and talk to those who are racing to determine what type of vehicle you can race before making your purchase.

If everyone is racing gas-powered cars you won't want to buy an electric RC car.

College Basketball Jerseys: Don't Just Show Your Support -- Wear It!

Posted on Minggu, 17 Juli 2011 | 0 komentar
Among the most highly prized possessions that any college basketball player can hope for is their college basketball jersey. The college basketball jersey represents a feeling of pride and belonging to the team.

But the feeling is not restricted to the team. Jerseys are also prized by fellow students, who show up at college games dressed in the same colors to cheer on their team.

Anyone who loves the game will have a favorite team and player. Wearing their jersey creates a special bond.

Some Like It Hot

Due to the heat of indoor playing conditions, basketball jerseys are made of thin material, mostly of mock mesh, dazzle, tricot mesh or pro mesh materials. Jerseys are always sleeveless because long sleeved jerseys would cause the players to sweat too much, creating not only uncomfortable conditions, but unhealthy ones as well. The jerseys are also worn long and loose with large armholes for ventilation.

The NCAA is very strict about the way basketball jerseys are worn on the court and requires all players to tuck in their jerseys.

Color, Numbers And Styles

The tank top jerseys are worn with shorts, which are long and baggy with stretchable waistbands and drawstrings. Each jersey is embossed with the team logo, player number and team name. Every college team likes to customize its basketball jersey, and comes up with a unique color plan.

There are a number of manufacturers who produce wonders with the jersey designs and styles. Reversible jerseys use contrasting fabric on both the inside and outside surfaces, so that they can be worn either way.

The player's number is required to be on both the back and the front of the jersey. The height of these numbers is required to be 8 inches on the back and 6 inches on the front side. The names of the players are printed in 2-inch high letters. Shortly after 9/11, the NCAA began to allow players to wear the American flag on the jerseys using a 4-inch side insert for this purpose.

Collector's Items

The demand for replica college jerseys always goes up when the NCAA tournament season begins. There is also a big demand for jerseys worn by the top basketball stars. These replica jerseys, available at several online stores, make a great collector's item for the avid basketball fan.

Top 2 Ways To Buy A Pool Table

Posted on Sabtu, 16 Juli 2011 | 0 komentar
Possibly the most misunderstood part of pool table buying is how to really go about getting the best deal you possibly can. Heck, I sure didn’t really know how to go about it. And boy, did I want a pool table. Playing pool is great fun and I’ve spent many hours at the local bar..uh, I mean pool hall sharpening my skills. I decided that I had to have a pool table for myself. However, after buying a pool table, it becomes pretty clear that there is a right way to go about it and wrong way.

1) Ebay.

Ebay is your friend. But not for the reasons you might think. Everything in the world is for sale on Ebay. And guess what, that’s great for market research. Look at how much pools are selling for. Watch the pool table sales for a week or so. This will be a great way to get a feel for what they sell for and the different types of pool tables available in the marketplace. And, after you’ve watched a whole bunch of sales happen, you might want to start bidding on pool tables for yourself. In full disclosure, I haven’t personally bought a pool table from Ebay. Therefore, I’m not sure what sort of shipping and handling charges would be charged for a pool table. Cross country shipping could conceivably get pricey. However, it is a great research tool for everything you could imagine.

2)Buying a used pool table.

Now, this is THE best way to buy a pool table- if you can do it the right way. Why pay for a brand new pool table when you could buy one that’s almost as good but just has had a prior owner. However, as is the deal with all used equipment (of any kind): buyer beware. There is a right way to buy a used pool table. If the deal looks too good to be true, it just might be. If I’m selling a pool table for 50% off retail and it looks brand new, it might have come into the owner’s possession under dubious circumstances or it might have a defect that isn’t patently obvious to the inspector. Make sure you know all about used pool table buying or all research will have been in vain.

Football Fsont ils Bon Ménage

En effet, Casino 888.com sponsorisait le FC Toulouse et PartyGaming le FNCA de Nantes! Oui mais voila, c'était sans compter sur la Ligue Professionnelle de Football.

Dimanche dernier, sur les maillots du FC Toulouse, on retrouvait bien les couleurs du casino mais les signes ???.com. Qu'est ce donc ???.com me direz-vous. Il s'agit tout simplement de son sponsor Casino 888.com.

Pourquoi?

Alors que les joueurs ont pour obligation de porter les couleurs et le nom du casino, la Ligue professionnelle a, quant à elle, décidée d'exclure les casinos de la publicité et du sponsoring. D'où l'omission. Or, tout le monde l'aura compris le sigle ??? faisait bien référence au casino sponsor de l'équipe.

La Ligue explique son refus. Du fait de l'arrestation de certains géants de casinos en ligne depuis le mois de septembre, dont le derneir en date de Bwin arreté en France, la ligue se voit le droit d'interdire la publicité, le sponsoring pour les paris en ligne.

Samedi, une autre équipe, la FC Monaco a rencontré le même problème que le FC Toulouse lors de son match face au Mans. Un représentant de l'équipe explique que, sans cette alternative, le coup d'envoi du match n'aurait pu être donné.

On se souvient encore des paroles de Jean-Luc Gripond, vice-président du club nantais, "le FCNA a décidé de s'associer à un nouveau sponsor disposant: "premièrement une dimension internationale, et notre football a besoin de partenaires de cette dimension, deuxièmement un lien avec les nouvelles technologies, ce qui représente pour nous le futur".

Qu'en est il aujourd'hui?

Un enquête a été menée ( voir notre article Bonnes Nouvelles pour les Casinos en Ligne).
Les paris sont monopole d'état en France et on pourrait penser que l'arrestation des cadres de BWin s'est opérée au bénéfice de la Française des jeux. Aussi, peu de temps après, la Commission européenne a décidé de s'intéresser de plus près à la question du monopole d'État pour les paris et les jeux. La volonté de la commission est clairement affichée, soit les États membres les considèrent néfastes pour leurs ressortissants et interdisent totalement les jeux en ligne, soit ils les autorisent et permettent aux sociétés comme 888.com d'offrir leurs services sur le marché.

Learn how to Ski

Posted on Kamis, 14 Juli 2011 | 0 komentar
Learning to ski is really quite easy. Most resorts have a ski school on the premises, and lessons are reasonably priced. Group and private lessons are usually available. It is a good idea, however, to schedule an appointment before you arrive at the resort. This will ensure that you can start learning to ski the very first hour of your vacation.

Most ski instructors start by showing you how to maneuver around with your equipment. When you are wearing ski boots, you will be inclined slightly forward – there is a reason for this…when you are skiing down a mountain, you will be inclined forward! Walking in ski boots the first time is a bit difficult – but it works just fine if you learn to walk with your knees slightly bent.

The first maneuver you will learn is called the plow, or snow plow. This is a technique that is done by literally using your skis as a snow plow. You make the back of the skis slowly move outwards, away from your body by applying pressure, this stops you. You guide yourself on skies by bending your knees and leaning in one direction or another, depending on which way you want to go. All of these techniques can be learned in one hour, even if you have never been on a pair of skis in your life.

The beauty of skiing is that after you have learned how to snow plow, and how to guide yourself on the skis, you are ready to ski! Get on the lift, head up the mountain and give it a try. Control your speed by snow plowing – go slow at first. When you want to pick up some speed, draw your skis back in to pick up a little speed, then push them back out into the plow position to control that speed.

As a beginner, you should stick to the trails that are designed for beginners. At most resorts, these trails are marked with a green emblem. Blue trails are for intermediate skiers, and after one day of skiing the beginner trails, you may be ready for those trails. The black trails are for experts. These trails can be dangerous for people who don’t have the skill level to handle them! Avoid black trails until you have had a great deal of ski instruction and experience. You will know when you are ready!

It could help you to earn more money. Yoga can provide you with the ability to manage stress, and this alone can assist you in the workplace, but it can also aid you in your concentration skills. The better you can concentrate, the more you can get accomplished.
Another advantage of learning Yoga is increased energy. Many people claim that they begin to feel more refreshed and energized after they begin practicing Yoga.

Philadelphia Phillies vs. Milwaukee Brewers

Posted on Minggu, 10 Juli 2011 | 0 komentar
Miller Park

The Philadelphia Phillies ended their longest winning streak since a 13 game streak in 1991. Glavine pitched seven strong innings and drove in a pair of runs to help the New York Mets beat Philadelphia 13-4 Wednesday night, snapping the Phillies nine-game winning streak.

It had been quite a turnaround for the Phillies, who opened 1-6 and finished 10-14 in April. The winning streak began on April 30 with a 5-1 victory in Pittsburgh that avoided a three-game sweep against the woeful Pirates.

"We just have to throw this one out the window and bounce back tomorrow," Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said.

In other news Cole Hamels is no longer only in Philadelphia's future plans. The Phillies will call up the 22-year-old Hamels, their first-round pick in 2002, to make his major league debut Friday against the Cincinnati Reds and the Phillies hope this new prospect will help them to get a place in the playoffs.

Lineup

1. Jimmy Rollins, SS. 2.Chase Utley, 2nd B. 3. Aaron Rowand, CF. 4.Bobby Abreu, RF. 5.Pat Burrell, LF. 6. Ryan Howard, 1st B. 7. David Bell, 3rd B. 8. Carlos Joaquin Ruiz, C. 9.Cory Lidle, P.

Milwaukee didn’t have a good time against the Padres last week. Losing on Wednesday night 3-0 in a game that was completely dominated by Chan Ho Park who didn’t allowed any runs in the 6 innings he pitched.

Park credited outfielders Mike Cameron and Brian Giles for making great catches. "And also, I had a good catcher back there calling the right pitches, so that helps and makes me more comfortable and confident," Park said.

The Brewers that have a 17-17 record were playing really good baseball up until they faced the Padres, which outplay them in two of the three games of the series. The Brewers had a phenomenal season start but lately they’re in a hole and might get down the .500 average.

Milwaukee will face this week against Philadelphia in a series that will be very exciting, since both teams need to win. Expect nothing but great baseball games between these two in this series. If you like sports’ betting this is a great opportunity to give more emotion to the All-American sport by making some bets on the series.

Lineup

1. Rickie Weeks, 2nd B. 2. Bill Hall, SS. 3.Geoff Jenkins, RF. 4.Carlos Lee, LF. 5. Prince Fielder, 1st B. 6. Corey Koskie, 3rd B. 7. Damian Miller, C. 8.Brady Clark, CF. 9.Chris Capuano, P.

My Daughter - My Inspiration

Posted on Sabtu, 09 Juli 2011 | 0 komentar
My daughter Manteee (Samantha) has shown me a path that I like traveling. She has been and will continue to be an inspiration in my life. Her fearless nature and competitive qualities have swelled my heart. I am so lucky to have her as my daughter.
She loves playing softball. Her competitive nature shows up in many facets of the game. As a second baseman she dives for groundballs that have a chance of getting to the outfield. She races for fly balls and pop ups that she must get and usually does get. While batting she will take one for the team. She will allow a hard pitched ball to hit her so she can get on base. She will stand up to any pitcher, no matter how hard they throw, to get her swings in. On the bases is where she is fearless. Diving or sliding into a base with no apparent concern for her body has often scared me. Taking the the extra base when most girls just stand around has earned her a thumbs up from her coaches.


She has stepped in and played against players, in some tournaments, that are five to six years older than her. Some of these girls are over six feet tall. My daughter is five feet two inches if we put her on a stretching table. Her lack of height has been made up by her determination.. Starting for her high school team as a Freshman was quite an accomplishment. What was even better was that her coach favors Juniors and Seniors because they have more experience.

Baseball and softball have been a large part of my life. Writing this e-zine about my daughter has been a pleasure. She has made her dad proud. I feel like I am glowing inside when I watch her play. I feel like I am the luckiest father on earth.
My fantasy baseball story has come to reality through my daughter. I wanted one of my children to excel in baseball. She is the one that has carried the ball and bat. She may or may not want to continue her career after High School. That is up to her. But for now I am able to watch, admire and feel proud.

I have admired Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Willie Mays and Derek Jeter to name a few players that impressed me. My daughter has tied Derek Jeter as one of my all time favorites. They are both on my top ten list.

                        
Feel free to pass this on to anyone you think would enjoy reading about baseball or the Hall of Fame.

New Rules For 2006 Formula One Season

Posted on Kamis, 07 Juli 2011 | 0 komentar
2006 Formula One drivers will experience new rules for the 2006 season opening race in Bahrain next weekend.

The F1 season will start on Sunday with the Grand Prix in Bahrain which will have different rules compared to previous competitions. The Fédération Internationale de l’ Automobile (FIA) which is the governing body for motor racing events, has changed the format of the qualifying round. This time a three period knockout system will replace the single-lap system that was used last year.

The last six cars from the two fifteen minute races will be eliminated. The car starting in pole position will be known at the end of the 3rd leg, which is a twenty minute battle against time and opponents.

For the first two qualifying periods, the session will end when the checkered flag comes out, meaning if a driver is on a flying lap and the session ends, his time will not count when he crosses the finish line. That restriction will not apply for the final session.

Regarding fuel limits, the three liter ten-cylinder V motors will be replaced by the 2.4 liter eight-cylinder V motors for safety reasons except in the cast of Scuderia Toro Rosso, who have been allowed to use rev-limited V10 engines under a previous agreement signed by the Minardi team.

FIA estimates that due to this modification, cars will lose 200 horse power and the time for a lap will drop with 3-5 seconds. Unlike the first two qualifying sessions, teams in the final phase will have to decide on their fuel strategy for the race - whatever amount of fuel teams elect to start the final session with is the amount of fuel they will have to start the race.

The FIA has also mandated that a driver must set a lap within 110-percent of his previous fast lap or he will have that time eliminated. This is to guard against anyone "sandbagging" or attempting a fuel-economy run to somehow squeeze a liter or two more of fuel into the tank.

This year there will be eleven teams competing in the F1 Grand Prix instead of the usual ten. FIA representatives affirmed that the new regulations were created to diminish costs and increase safety. The qualifications are scheduled for Saturday March 11th, at 2 p.m. local time.

FIFA Friendly Match Holland vs. Mexico

Posted on Selasa, 05 Juli 2011 | 0 komentar
The road to Germany in the qualifying process was rather easy for the Mexican squad. They open the six-team round with an important victory in San Jose over the Costa Rica National Team, one of the fiercest rivalries in the CONCACAF. After that the whole eliminatory went as smooth as anyone would expected except for the loss against USA in American soil.

The Mexican team has been showing a great soccer level over the past decade where they’ve been in the top ten of the FIFA World Rankin in many opportunities and more recently since 2005 in the top five.

Their recent participation in the 2005 FIFA Confederation Cup puts all eyes on them. They beat the World Champions Brazil in a dramatic game 1-0 in their favor. They put up quite a fight in the semi-finals against Argentina only to lose with a dubious penalty against them. After that they match Germany in the game for the third place and loss in extra time 4-3.

Mexico announced the final 23 man squad that will be traveling to Germany including foreign-born Antonio Naelson and Guillermo Franco; plus La Volpe's son-in-law Rafael Garcia. On the other hand, there has been no place for Cuauhtemoc Blanco, who many regard as the country's top player at the age of 33.

Holland is considered to be one of the finest teams in the world yet to win a World Cup. Their best participations were in 1974 and 1978 when they were runner-ups in both occasions; they also won the European Championship in 1988.

The Dutch can point to some impressive results in qualifying for this edition. Former star striker van Basten has rejuvenated the national squad since replacing the experienced Dick Advocaat following the Netherlands’ semi-final exit at UEFA EURO 2004.

They will face Mexico on home soil to prepare before Germany. With a great team this year they are one of the favorites to contend the Championship in this year edition. Players like Van Nistelrooy, Van Persie, Giovanni van Bronckhorst and veteran Phillip Cocu will take this team very far in the Tournament; mostly if they keep playing like they did in the qualifying round.

This friendly match between these two great teams will be an exciting one and most sportsbooks will have a line for the match. So if you like sport betting this is a great opportunity to bet on this beautiful sport.

With its fame, scuba diving has also become notorious for unforeseen accidents or fatalities caused by unnecessary neglect. The keys to deriving hard-earned enjoyment from the activity are good training, presence of mind, and dependable scuba diving equipment.

Aside from the basic checklist of scuba diving gears – such as, wet suit, regulator, oxygen tank, mask, and fins – and the vital scuba diving equipment – like diving computer, compass, and gauges –, are other set of tools that can be used to fully make the most out of every experience are underwater cameras and lights. These gadgets can document every trip and dive into various sites. These are designed to capture details of the various colors and activities of marine life. To make sure of the quality and performance, it would be better to go the known brands available in the market. Another way to make sure of a wise purchase is to research and gather a consensus among experienced divers and their recommendations.

What is most important is for a diver to be knowledgeable of his sport and his scuba equipment. No amount of modern technology can assuage human errors causes by different factors. But, having a unruffled demeanor in times of accidents, could mean the life of a companion of one’s own.

Get Into Shape With Volleyball

Title:
Get Into Shape With Volleyball

Word Count:
375

Summary:
How are you feeling these days about your level of fitness or what you body looks
How are you feeling these days about your level of fitness or what you body looks like? Are you worried about bathing suit season? If so volleyball is the perfect “get into shape” activity. Don’t worry if you have never played volleyball before. You can still play on a league and use it as one of your cardio and strength training workouts.

Most YMCA’s support volleyball leagues at every skill level. If you are unsure of which league you should join, just speak with the activities director and he or she can share more league and team information with you.

Volleyball can be a great strength training activity because the basic moves of volleyball work your core muscle groups. So even if you can not commit to joining a league right now, just find a partner to pepper with and you will work your abdominals, glutes, and large leg group muscles. Pepper is a warm up drill for every level of players where partners bump, set, and then spike. The goal is to see how long you can keep the ball going. This is a great exercise to do on the beach, in the gym, or in your backyard.

Volleyball can really get you into shape because of the cardio workout it provides. Continuous play requires players to be constantly moving. These short sprints provide just the fat burning workout many of us are looking for. The best part is that you are so focused on the game that you really don’t think about how hard our body is working. This is way better then going to the gym to workout on a machine where you are staring at how much time you have left the whole time you are on the machine.

Another great reason that getting into shape with volleyball is a great choice is the camaraderie it provides. No doubt you will make some great workout friends and acquaintances if you join a volleyball league. Some leagues play year round or play tournaments in the off season. The great thing about volleyball is that you can play as much or as little as you want. Give your workout some variety by adding volleyball to get and stay into shape.

Choosing Bass Boats For Sale

Posted on Sabtu, 02 Juli 2011 | 0 komentar
If you are into fishing then you likely think that bass fishing is one of the best sports in the world. You are not alone; a growing number of people are starting to feel this way. As a bass fishing enthusiast you are likely starting to stock up on your gear and accessories in preparation for the fishing season.

Another idea may be to get your own bass boat. However, while this seems like a good idea you should carefully consider all aspects of buying a bass fishing boat before you pay out the money.

The most important thing you need to consider is how serious you are about bass fishing and whether or not you will keep it up. While getting your own bass fishing boat to use on the water you need to carefully consider how often you are going to use it.

If you only plan on getting out on the water with your boat once or twice a season then you would save a lot of money by simply renting a bass boat. However, if you plan on getting a lot of use out of your bass boat then you should definitely consider buying one of your own.

So once you have decided that you want to buy your own bass fishing boat you next need to consider whether you want to buy a new or used boat. This decision needs to be made early in order to make sure you have all the financial needs worked out early.

The main thing to consider is that a newer boat costs a little more, but it is easier to sell if you change your mind later. Rather a used boat will save you money at the time of purchase, but can be more difficult to sell on the market.

Finally you should carefully consider if you have the space to store your bass boat when it is out of the water. Remember that you boat won't be in the water year round and you will need some place to keep it when you aren't fishing.

If you live in the northern climate then you also have the added decision of how to protect your boat during the snow and rain. While all of these areas may make it seem like owning a boat isn't that much fun, they are meant to help you be prepared before making a large purchase. So carefully consider all of these areas to make sure you are properly prepared.
