Two First Communion Party Games for Kids

The First Communion is a special time when your child really begins to take part in the responsibilities and rules of your religion and some First Communion party games will lighten the tension. You may even want to mark the occasion by throwing a small party, so why not include a couple of fun First Communion party games?

Kids’ Crab Football:

This fun activity makes a great choice for the First Communion Party Games because it will help to burn off pent up energy from the more solemn events you had scheduled earlier. It also lets everyone get out of their special occasion clothes and relax a bit. For this First Communion party game you’ll need a large beach ball and lots of space for the kids to move around in. Crab Football is just like regular soccer except the ball is larger and the players have to walk like crabs. You know how, right? Just bend over like you are going to do a back flip and scuttle around on your hands and feet.

Animal Scavenger Hunt:

For this indoor or outdoor appropriate First Communion party game have the party divide into groups of three or four. Have each group choose an animal they want to pretend to be and make the adult in the group the Shepard. At the start of the game you will give the kids in each of the groups a list of hidden items you placed around the party area. The Shepards will all stay in the First Communion party games area while the ‘animals’ all go out searching for missing items. When a player finds an item they must call to the Shepard by making animal calls. The Shepard will recognize their players because the calls will be similar to the sounds made by their chosen animal. The Shepard will follow the sounds to their teammate and will get the missing item from the player and return to the First Communion party games area, while the ‘animal’ continues on the hunt to find more scavenger items. Those at the end of the hunt with the most items are the winners.

You’ll find that the kids and the adults at your First Communion party games have plenty of good old fun. Just take a little time out for the fun to start and you’ll have more than you can handle.

Getting Out of Debt With Zero-Based Budget

After accepting you must change your behavior to get out of debt, you are ready to look at relevant financial engineering tools. Again, I stress that without behavior change, tools and techniques will not improve your financial affairs. You must change your behavior because you choose to spend; money is merely the means to the end.

Zero-based budgeting is an important financial engineering tool for the household, particularly if folks are in debt. Developing and using a zero-based budget will help you sift your expenses. Traditional budgeting starts where you are as a base and then increases current dollar figures. Generally, the focus is on money, not activities, and the process assumes you need the status quo.

On the other hand, zero-based budgeting starts with a clean slate. For a household, it identifies a realistic lifestyle that will lead to minimum expenses in a defined period. It excludes discretionary items, but includes debt repayment plans. Most of all, it does not focus on money but on activities.

A proper zero-based budget for a household should show clear answers in these three areas: goals, plans, and monetary estimates (budget).

Goals

  1. What are the goals for the budget period?
  2. Is each goal necessary? Why?
  3. What if you do not do them now?
  4. Should each needed goal continue the same way?
  5. Suppose you stopped it?

Here, you are trying to identify your minimum lifestyle level for the period. Will you cut goals and activities so deep that you focus almost entirely on debt reduction? For example, will you eliminate buying clothes, taking vacation, children’s hockey, dance, or other activities?

For an item to qualify as a legitimate goal or activity, you must be satisfied that not doing it will cause major unavoidable disruptions to your lifestyle and household. How important are your daughter’s ice skating lessons?

Plans

  1. Is there a plan for each surviving goal? Is there a plan to control spending on your son’s football activities?
  2. Should the plan change to require less expenses? Should you carpool to go to your daughter’s soccer games?
  3. Could you defer the plan and the goal until a greater portion of your debts are repaid?

Monetary Estimate (Budget)

  1. Notice that financial calculations are just now being discussed, and only in the context of approved goals and plans.
  2. You will not look at last year’s budget because you will build this budget from scratch, focused on specific needed goals.
  3. You have to calculate what it will cost you to do each task and activity as if you had never done them before.
  4. The budget will exclude frills unless they have goals and plans. It will include debt repayment based on your debt repayment schedule.

Zero-based budgeting, done properly, is an effective tool that could benefit households and businesses. However, it is difficult to use because it involves much work. Besides, folks become insecure as it forces them to think unconventionally and creatively, to question the present state, and to embrace change. In short, zero-based budgeting will take you outside your comfort zone.

After doing your zero-based budget, you must get an accountability partner and then set up a reliable review process so you can see quickly effects of your lifestyle choices, compared with the zero-based budget.

I repeat, this is an exceptionally useful tool to help you get out of debt, but first, you must change behaviors that led to your indebtedness.

Soccer Drills – Preparing Your Young Soccer Players For the Finals

I have seen on many occasions a team of gifted young soccer players go through a season undefeated, only to get to the grand final and lose their only game of the season. My son played in a team that only lost two games last season. They were the final, and the grand final. I have coached teams on many occasions that defeated the undefeated team in the grand final. Maybe you are the coach of a team that is currently undefeated and entering the finals. Or maybe you are the coach of a team that is the underdog going into the finals. How do you prepare young soccer players to play in the finals?

I hear it said on many occasions that a final is just another game. I do not subscribe to this theory. While the game is played on the same field, with the same ball, and the same number of players, junior soccer players attach a greater importance to finals. And so do senior players for that matter. I think that telling players that it is just another game is just a defensive mechanism so that they do not feel so bad if they lose. I coach players to approach a final with an attitude that this is the game of the year when they should give their absolutely best effort. It is at this time of the year that they should really aim up and show how good they really are. Encourage them to be their best and be 100 percent committed is the best way to approach a final. And, then if they lose you can comfort them with the fact that they did their best.

Finals matches are usually more intense than regular season games. There is usually less time and less space for players to work in. In the weeks leading into the finals your soccer drills should be concentrating on the first touch, short passes, passing and moving, and controlling the ball under pressure. This will help your players cope with the extra pressure placed on them in a final. Keeping possession of the ball should always be one of the major aims, so teaching your players to use their body to protect possession is also another key skill to be focusing on leading into the finals.

Are you the underdog? Are you playing against a team that you have not beaten all year? All teams have key players, and all teams have weaknesses. When I coach a team against a stronger club, I try to identify the key players on the opposition team. If you have played them in the regular season you will already know this. Shut them down. Man mark them. Play them out of the game. This may involve reorganising the structure of your team, so I like to practice this structure in a few regular season games so that the players are familiar with it. I also use defensive training drills like tagging, and drills to close space on attackers to help with this. If you can upset the game of the key players on the opposition you will go a long way to beating them.

Attack. The aim of a finals game is to win. Draws do not count in finals. So you must score goals. Team formation is a critical element in the playing style of your team. Are you playing 4 4 2, 4 3 3, or 3 4 3. I do not like to vary too much the formation that I have used during the regular season. But one of the main aims in a finals match must be to score goals.

Preparing your team to play in the finals should start at training a few weeks before the finals start. Soccer drills should encourage ball control, short passing, and speed of movement. Defensive drills should encourage tagging, and closing space. Think clearly about the formation you are going to play and how you are going to score goals. And identify the strengths of your opponent and try to neutralize them. Then before the game build your players up to give 100 percent and play to the best of their ability. That will give them the best chance to be successful on the field.

The Ryder Cup – Europe Vs USA Biennial Golf Competition

The Ryder Cup is a hotly contested biennial competition between The United States of America and Europe. This is golf played at the highest level and although few prisoners are take, the competition evokes real feelings of passion from players and gallery alike. However, it was good to see the friendliness and sporting ethos returning into the competition after the 2010 event when The Ryder Cup was held in Wales for the first time.

The fuse was lit in 1921 when the inaugural event took place in Scotland as Great Britain and Ireland took on The United States of America. Gleneagles played host on this occasion and so the onset of the great rivalry between our nations began. Although the «home» team were triumphant, it was not long before the USA were champions at every Ryder Cup match. The rest of Europe were then included, helping even up the odds somewhat!

Samuel Ryder set about donating a cup, together with the promise of £5 to each golfer on the winning side. He also paid for some chicken sandwiches and champagne.

The image engraved upon the Ryder Cup is that of the man responsible for teaching Sam Ryder how to become a great golfer himself. His name was Abe Mitchell, and although selected as the 1927 Captain for Great Britain and Ireland he became ill before embarking aboard the Aquitania and could not make the arduous journey across to New York.

The Ryder Cup has not been held in Scotland for forty years, but is «coming home» in 2014 when it will once again be contested at Gleneagles. The course chosen to host this prestigious event is The PGA Centenary Course. This is a course re-designed by one of the «greats» Jack Nicklaus, who declared it was «the finest parcel of land in the world I have ever been given to work with» and it’s fast becoming recognised as a new classic.

September 2012 will see The Ryder Cup being fought over in Illinois at the Medinah Country Club with team Captains chosen as Davis Love III for The United States and Jose Olazabal for the defending holders of the cup. Jose is sure to have a tear in his eye as he captains the Europeans as he will be thinking about his dear friend and Ryder Cup team-mate Seve Ballesteros who passed away on 7th May 2011 aged 54. Seve was a fine ambassador for golf in general and The Ryder Cup in particular, and will be sadly missed.

We have put together an information site about golf in Scotland, with a little bit of history about the great game, which we hope you enjoy reading about.

World Cup Spread Betting – Get Your Football Clubs in Order

Tough new guidelines from UEFA will make clubs operate within their means from the start of the 2012/13 season. The move is set to bring more discipline to club finances and also take the pressure off player’s wages and transfers fees. Clubs will have to compete within their revenue. UEFA believes it will encourage investment in infrastructure, sport facilities and youth academies. It also believes it will help the clubs to sustain themselves in the long term and settle their liabilities in the good time.

The break even clause is a new departure for UEFA whereby the clubs will be monitored for 3 years. They will not be allowed to spend more than they earn from revenue give or take 5 million. They will be able to spend what they like on their stadiums, training facilities, youth academy and their communities.

The huge investments of billionaire owners will be severely cut though. Over the 3 seasons they will only be able to put in 45 million euro over the break even point to help pay wages and transfer fees. This means that if the clubs owners want to go and buy their way into the Champions League they can’t. Sounds good in principle to stop the big clubs splashing the cash but it also stops the smaller clubs like Fulham who have a mega rich owner. They won’t be able to spend anymore of Al Fayeds money above the 45 million euro, the same amount as Mr Abramovich down the road at Chelsea. So suddenly it’s not so fair anymore as Fulham wouldn’t have the same revenue stream as Chelsea or the ways of increasing it either.

At the moment most of the Premier league clubs are alright. But Aston Villa, Chelsea, Man City and Liverpool would all set alarm bells ringing at UEFA with the huge losses they are incurring. It seems the huge debts some of the big clubs are holding won’t be taken into account at the moment. The system will only be used as monitoring tool for the moment and clubs won’t be banned from UEFA competitions. They would first be warned and put under review before been banned.

Another part of the clause states that clubs will not be able to owe money to rivals, players, staff or tax authorities at the end of the season. They’re hoping to avoid what happened at Portsmouth who went into administration owing millions in transfer fees, tax and VAT to name a few. I think I read somewhere yesterday that they had offered to pay their creditors 20% of what they owed them. A recent report on European clubs said that 50% of them where making a loss and that 20% where in serious financial danger.

In other World Cup Spread Betting football news. Michael Essien has failed to recover from injury and has been omitted from Ghana’s squad. Javier Hernandez will become a Man Utd player on 1st July after receiving a work permit and World Cup hosts South Africa beat Colombia 2-1 in a friendly at the Soccer City stadium.

And finally, while South Africa were beating Colombia, the Colombians were having their hotel rooms inspected by two of the employees who relieved them of their money. They were later arrested. Hope security is ramped up just a little bit during the next few weeks. Bonjour.

Does Mo Salah Have a Shot at Winning the Ballon D’Or?

This question has been on the minds of many football fans as they witnessed the performance of the 25-year old Egyptian forward over the course of the season. Sir Alex Ferguson had once told that Inside Forwards are more dangerous than traditional forwards. The Egyptian seems to be trying to prove Ferguson’s remarks true. He has shown explosive bouts of pace, exceptional fitness levels, extraordinary shooting accuracy and the form of his life.

So, once again, does Mo Salah have a shot at winning the Ballon d’Or? Not Quite Yet!

The reason is rather simple- Liverpool as a team have not won any silverware this season as of yet. So does this count? Yes, it does. Despite all his exploits, the team has not been successful in any major competition apart from the UEFA Champions League. Liverpool just won the first-leg of their semi-finals against AS Roma 5-2. Salah proved to be instrumental in this trashing of his old club yet again as he ended the match with 2 goals and 2 assists. He had managed to score seven goals in his 7 outings in the Champions League during the leadup to the Semi-finals. He has shown out of the ordinary striking form through-out the Premier League season. But unless Liverpool win the Champions League, his dream of winning the Ballon d’Or will remain just that, a dream.

But things have not always gone according to script for the Egyptian. His initial entry into the Premier League was with Chelsea, who bought him from FC Basel. But he could only make 13 appearances and score 2 goals before being loaned-off to Italian side, Fiorentina. He was then loaned to AS Roma who bought him from Chelsea for a complete transfer. He enjoyed considerable success at the club. Liverpool then bought from Roma before the start of the 2017-18 season. Many of the experts voiced their doubts about Salah’s ability to adopt to the Premier League. But all of them have been silenced now, given his performance and sheer attacking prowess he has shown.

Salah also helped Egypt qualify for the FIFA World Cup 2018, their first appearance since the 1990 World Cup. He emerged as Egypt’s top scorer during the qualifying tournament and scored both the goals in the all important match against Congo. He has so far scored 43 times for Liverpool during this season and is only behind Ian Rush in the all time top goal scorer’s for the club in a single season.

Mo Salah has already been named as the Professional Footballers’ Association Player of the year. So let us hope Liverpool will maintain their momentum and take their current form into the second leg against AS Roma.
