ARTICLE: FIGURE SKATING


Figure Skating

Figure skating is a sporting event involving spins, jumps, and a variety of other moves, performed on ice, often to music. The skates used by figure skaters differ from those used in other ice-based sports, as they are designed to accommodate the specific movements common in this sort of skating. For example, they have a set of jagged teeth at the front of the blade that facilitate jumping. How has television played a role in the development of the rules of competitive figure skating? More… Discuss

THIS DAY IN THE YESTERYEAR: TIGER WOODS BECOMES YOUNGEST GOLFER TO WIN MASTERS TOURNAMENT (1997)


Tiger Woods Becomes Youngest Golfer to Win Masters Tournament (1997)

Despite recent personal problems that took him off the tour circuit for a time, Eldrick “Tiger” Woods is still considered one of the greatest golfers of all time. In 1997, at the age of 21, he became the youngest player ever to win the Masters Tournament—winning by a record margin of 12 strokes. That same year, he won five other PGA tournaments and became the youngest player ever ranked first in world golf competition. Woods coined the term “Cablinasian” to describe his ethnicity, which is what? More… Discuss

OPTIMISM MAY BE GOOD FOR YOUR WAISTLINE (so is diet and exercise!)


Optimism May Be Good for Your Waistline

Women who see the glass as half full may find it easier to stick to healthy eating habits than glass-half-empty types. In a recent study, women who measured highest on a scale of optimism made the greatest strides in improving their diets. Those who were lowest on the scale also tended to have less healthy diets to begin with than those with more positive outlooks. Researchers believe it is not so much the women’s outlook at play as it is the skills that tend to go hand-in-hand with optimism, like self-regulation and positive coping skillsMore… Discuss

Yoga

Yoga dates to at least the 2nd century BCE—and likely much earlier—as an orthodox school of Hindu philosophy, but it has become known outside of India as a means of physical and mental exercise. The popular form in the West is hatha yoga, which emphasizes specific postures combined with controlled breathing to bring about mental calm. Hatha yoga’s more than 1,000 positions are intended to make the spine supple and promote circulation throughout the body. What does yoga mean in SanskritMore… Discuss

Doping scandals have become almost commonplace in the sports world of late. Numerous athletes have had their reputations tarnished, and in some cases their careers ended, after being caught using performance-enhancing drugs.

Blood Test Predicts Alzheimer’s

If you could find out today whether or not Alzheimer’s disease is in your future, would you want to? Scientists in the US have developed a blood test that they say can predict with 90 percent accuracy an individual’s risk of developing Alzheimer’s within the next few years. The test looks at the levels of 10 lipids in the blood that appear to be predictive of future cognitive decline. It is unclear why these lipid levels act as an indicator, but one theory is that early changes in the brain affect these circulating fats. Experts are now in the process of confirming and refining these findings. More…Discuss

ARTICLE: CURLING


Curling

Curling is a team sport in which players slide heavy stones with handles toward a target or “tee.” The stones closest to the tee at the end of play earn points. After a stone is hurled, players called “sweepers” use special brooms to sweep the ice ahead of the stone. This affords them some measure of control over the stone’s trajectory and allows them to get it closer to the tee or even knock away or block the opposing team’s stones. Though curling is very popular in Canada, it originated where? More…

This is an edited version of the originally uploaded “Wilderness Park In Downey California”. The main difference is the clips transition, and I think you will enjoy it more this way. Why did I make this movie? Because I believe that our time calls for refocusing on our psyche, on what makes all natural beings live in harmony. In other words I just took the time away from the modern word to look to nature, and rediscover its beauty, empathy, resilience, acceptance, and above all power to restore. It is the intent of the well known “Bridge Over Troubled Waters”, to restore, to build the bridge between the internal, overwhelming at times noise, and the external, harmony in nature.

It is always a great “Vista Point” from this hilltop, and always a privilege 
to be able to do the walk, which is not as easy as it used to be. Only 1.7 miles from Beverly Blvd. @ Turnbull Canyon Trail, still a uphill road all the way.

They say that heated buildings eliminate the need for the body to expend energy in order to keep warm, thereby reducing daily caloric burn. Other experts disagree, saying that cooler temperatures increase appetite, counteracting any caloric burn with an increased caloric intake. There is also some indication that cold indoor temperatures increase the risk of a stroke. More… Discuss

I would look everywhere,
I would look upon my deep breathing pattern…
I took long walks strapped to a photo camera, to a reorder…

kicked a pebble,
stepped over a fallen branch
took on more step,
with a well broken in PUMA running shoes -
I understood that humility travels with the maker…by walking carefully,

Though often associated with skydivers, a free fall in physics is any motion of a body upon which gravity is the only force acting—such as a ball thrown up in the air. Though free falls from great heights are incredibly dangerous for humans, they can be survivable, especially if one lands on a surface of high deformity, like snow or water. In 1972, a flight attendant miraculously survived—despite 27 days in a coma—after the plane she was on exploded, hurtling her how many feet to the ground? More…Discuss

Test Developed to Predict Altitude Sickness Vulnerability

Most people who ascend to altitudes above 8,000 ft (2,400 m) gradually adapt to the reduced oxygen concentration and low atmospheric pressure, but some have a severe reaction that can be fatal unless they return to low altitude. Until now, there was no way of determining who would be vulnerable to altitude sickness, but researchers have developed a new test that seems to identify such individuals. At the moment, the test can only be administered after a person has spent at least four hours at high altitude, but the research team hopes to reduce this in the future. More… Discuss

In 1829, the Saint Helena Railway Company built an inclined-plane cableway on Saint Helena.[1] It was intended to lift supplies from the port and capital of Jamestown up to Ladder Hill Fort.[2] It was rebuilt as a long, steep staircase, by theRoyal Engineers in 1871 now known as Jacob’s Ladder.[3] It is designated as a Grade I listed feature.[4]

The staircase is now lit and can be used to climb up Ladder Hill, where the suburb of Half Tree Hollow has developed. The staircase consists of 699 steps and ascends 183 metres (600 ft). A timed run takes place up Jacob’s Ladder every year, with people coming from around the world to take part.
