7.19 Tips To Deal With Life In A Recession

1) STOP STRESSING OUT

What do you have to lose by taking a little time to just breathe or block the world out for a moment? Times are rough for a lot of people right now and they tend to communicate that to many others virally creating a deeper emotional depression for all those who will listen. The key here is to "STOP LISTENING" for ten or twenty minutes a day. More importantly, stop thinking about those bills, the broken stove, little Susie's braces … whatever. Have a cup of tea in your closet if you have to and think of something or a time when you were pretty worry-free. The world doesn't stop when you do, but sometimes you just have to let it go ahead for a second.

2) PICK UP A CAUSE

When my siblings and I would complain about how tough times were, mom in her great wisdom would always remind us "there is always someone worse off than you, be happy". Try volunteering a couple of hours a week at a charity or coach your kid's soccer team. It gives you something different to fight for, focusing your energy on finding a solution with the Cancer Society, American Diabetes Association, local church groups etc. You think things are tough on you? Try being that kid dying of cancer then moan about your late car payment.

3) CLEAN HOUSE

Clear through all the crap you've accumulated over the past few years and have a garage sale, hell through it all on E-bay. You'd be amazed how much you can make on a regular basis. There's a market for just about anything out there even that retarded beer bottle collection from college. My loving wife made almost a thousand dollars selling off old baby clothes, magazines and knick knacks that were just taking up space. It's funny how we moved from an 1100 square foot apartment to a house double the size and filled it with stuff in less than a year!

4) START A BUSINESS

Okay, not everybody's cut out to run Microsoft or Google, but may be you can expand your E bay tactics to blossom into something more consistent. The girlfriend of a good buddy made over $ 3000 a month reselling "great deals" like antiques, odd art and anything she found cute. If you are any good around the kitchen, try opening a small catering business — what can you do with an extra $ 500 a month? Auto insurance, gas, credit cards, invest may be?

5) USE THE GOVERNMENT

Federal and local governments have numerous programs to help with food, utility bills, and daycare expenses. As person who has lived through every strata of society (filthy rich to welfare and back within my first twenty years of life), I can honestly say it's better to have money than not. The key is if you have fallen on hard times you can't be too proud to ask for help to feed your kids. What the hell good are you if you can't feed your family?

May be you don't qualify or want to apply for these programs, fine. By forming a business (as easy as becoming a sole proprietor) you could take advantage of countless deductions and expenses allowed in the federal tax code to increase your return. Please consult your tax advisor about your particular situation.

6) TURN OFF YOUR LOCAL NEWS

Outside of the weather report your local newscast is full of useless, negative junk that warns of how your lawn can give you herpes- yeah, I said it. On occasion it has a cute story about rescuing a cat out of a tree. How the hell does that help your financial situation ?! Turn it off. The average middle-class citizen watches around an hour of local news a day. What can you do with the extra seven hours a week? May be do that charity work? May be work on that business?

7) EXERCISE

This was a tough one for me to get back into. I can hear the excuses already — "I don't have the time", "whose going to watch the kids", "I'm too tired by the time I get out of work". Absolute, utter BS

Get off your assets and hit the gym for god's sake, for your sake. If you can make time to text, gossip, surf the net every day then you can spend 30 minutes to save your life and be around to enjoy your family when we get out of this supposed recession.

It could be as simple as taking the kids for a walk with the dog for 45 minutes twice or three times a week. You're too tired at the end of work because you don't exercise. The reason your spouse would rather hang out with his / her buddies instead of cuddling with you is because you've both gained 40lbs sitting on your couch watching CSI New Brunswick rather than jogging together.

This author was a power lifter for years before falling into the "I'm too busy trap". Been there, done that. Trust, it's even tougher for a former athlete to restart, it's a mental recovery thing. No one is saying become an Olympic track star; just get off your ass.

7.19) READ DAMN IT!

If you're so worried about your finances answer this question: When was the last time you picked up a Wall Street Journal, Money section of your local paper instead of the sports section? I heard somewhere 1 in 10 houses in the America is in foreclosure. How many of those people read their mortgage paperwork cover to cover? Have you? Love it or hate it those who hold the knowledge hold the world. Bottom line is financial knowledge equals financial power. You don't have to become an economic researcher, just pick something up. You're wondering why your 401k dropped 50% this week, yet you haven't looked up what any of the funds are invested in to make a profit. Do you know what a fund is? What's diversification really mean? READ SOMETHING!

The Features Of Soccer Cleats

Soccer cleats refer to a firm ground soccer shoe, fitted with studs or cleats to provide traction on most grass surfaces and outdoor soccer fields.

The first soccer shoes were ordered by King Henry VIII in 1526 when he wanted another pair to play football with. One that was tougher than his ordinary shoes. As the game got formalized in the mid 19th century, so did the accessories one needed to have while playing the game, the most important of which were the football shoes.

Vulcanization of rubber was an important invention for the manufacture of cleats whose primary purpose was protection of the players’ feet. And so on from there, many innovations and generations later, football boots have come to represent the advancement of shoe making technology and materials and its importance in football, a game which enjoys absolute popularity amongst all the nations of the world.

Today’s soccer cleat

Is not built so much for protection as for performance enhancement of the player! It does not even cover the ankle of the player. The cuts and organization of the studs are to suit different purposes. Amateur players use plastic studded cleats for hard ground. A wet ground requires detachable studs for better grip. These could be metal, plastic or rubber. Rubber soles are provided for indoor football shoes and there are special shoes for artificial turf.

Football blades where the studs have blades facing in different directions to minimize ankle injury to the wearer and deliver excellent grip are also an innovation that has drawn flak for causing a disproportionate number of injuries to other players.

A combination of synthetic fibers with or without leather is used for the upper, nowadays, with emphasis on the lightness of the boot. Carbon fiber as a new material, provides extreme lightness and is extremely flexible.

Additional features have been introduced like rubber ridges and shaping the boot for the ball enhance the player’s performance. There are shoes fitted with microchips that capture’s the player’s performance metrics and transmits it to a tablet or PC.

The latest is the environmentally friendly shoe, made with recycled and renewable material. This is also extremely lightweight.

Football cleats of the Future – Some interesting crystal ball gazing

· One young player predicts that the cleats of the future will have retractable studs, allowing him to use them as ordinary shoes

· Autolacing capabilities which will be good – the wearer, after tying the laces steps back into the heel of the shoe. While stepping back, he pushes a lever which lock the laces in place. Then the lever is disconnected in case the player steps back again while playing.

· Recyclable material and carbon fibers used in building aircraft will definitely be the order of the day in creating lightweight boots that contain material used in the last world cup! Not only that, each pair of boots will be recycled and rebuilt to suit that customer’s requirements.

Boots that fit like a sock… such silhouettes will be more in demand for better performance and comfort.

A World Cup Experience

Every four years the world stops to watch one game loved by all, the FIFA World Cup. Started as a tradition in 1930 pitting the best football clubs in the world against one another, the World Cup has grown to be the most watched sporting event in the world. Billions of people gather around their television sets to watch their favorite team compete for the most coveted trophy in sport, the Jules Rimet Cup. This event attracts millions of visitors to the host city, providing a great opportunity to showcase the local flavor and culture of that particular city.

Originally alternating between Europe and the America’s, FIFA World Cup host cities were expanded to Korea and Japan as co-host cities in 2002. This year’s Cup is being held in South Africa, making it the first World Cup to be held on African soil. The Cup kicks off on June 11 and continues until July 11 when a champion is crowned. Being a host city is a very prestigious accolade to add to a cities history, much like being an Olympic host city. Each host city expects an average of 3 million people to visit their city to watch up to 64 matches.

The chosen city announced about 8 years prior to the matches, which allows time to prepare for the matches as well as the visitors that come with the World Cup. They are given the opportunity to show off unique culture and everything the city has to offer. Preparations include opening of new hotels, restaurants, and stadiums as well as other cultural mainstays designed to keep millions of fans entertained when they are not rooting their home country on. Attending a match is an experience unlike no other as the best of the city’s culture and flavor is brought out during the month long event and is sure to be an experience to last a life time.

How Often is the World Cup of Soccer Held?

The World Cup is soccer’s biggest stage – it is the championship of the most widely played sport in the all of the world. The talk, preparation and qualifying for each incarnation of the World Cup tournament seems to be going on all the time – but the final of soccer’s biggest tournament only take place during a one month period every four years.

Many fans, clubs and organizations argue that the World Cup tournament itself, as well as the sport of soccer would benefit greatly from increasing the frequency of soccer’s world championship tournament. Some present very valid points and cite that other major sporting events that hold tournaments on an international level are capable of organizing those tournaments once every year.

There is no doubt that the World Cup’s allure wouldn’t be hurt by holding the tournament every three or even every two years. It would probably increase soccer’s international popularity and would certainly do well to increase the tournaments revenue potential – holding the tournament every two years would, in effect, double the amount of revenue created by the biggest international sports tournament. Reducing the number of years between World Cup tournaments would most likely also allow the qualifying team’s players to be more recognizable to fans – the players would be in front of the fans and on a big stage potentially twice as many times during their careers. This could potentially make fans feel more connected and attached to the players on the World Cup teams and possibly even cause an increase in the amount of people who tune in to watch the World Cup finals.

Why Every Four Years?

World Cup purists argue that every four years is ideal for the tournament and it is relatively unlikely that any change in World Cup frequency will actually occur – at least within the near future. It does take quite a bit of preparation to get ready for a month long tournament which draws in teams from more than thirty countries and fans from probably more nations than that.

The host country is voted on and selected long before the tournament will actually be held and the lengths to which the organizers go to ensure that everything is not just prepared, but perfect for each World Cup tournament are truly exhaustive. Other major sports tournaments may host players and fans from all over the world but few, if any can match the sheer magnitude of the World Cup tournament.

More than 200 countries will vie for a spot in the final phase of the World Cup tournament in 2010 to be held in South Africa, and of those more than 200, only thirty one teams will make the cut to appear in the World Cup (the South African team receives an automatic bye to compete as the host nation, making the total team count an even thirty two.) Many believe that trying to cram all of the qualifying and all of the necessary preparation into a shorter time period would hurt the quality and the overall success of the tournament – and that could very well be true.

The only other sporting events that are truly comparable (even bigger than the World Cup), are the Summer and Winter Olympic Games, which are both also held once every four years due to all of the preparation of the destination and the athletes who are to be involved.

Holding the tournament only once every four years only adds to the majesty of the World Cup and contributes to the sheer desire and determination of the many teams involved to first make the cut to the finals and then compete for the prestigious title of World Cup Champion.

Highs and Lows of Cricket and a Commercial Break

After some terrific cricket and some horrific related incidents during the first three months of 2018 it’s time now for a commercial break. Well, not exactly though for millions of avid fans! They have been patiently waiting for this most commercially viable form of cricket since the last season. Come April-May for over a decade now, and nobody can stop these fans for going gaga over this movie-styled entertainers of the sport.

Right, we are talking about the 11th Season of the Indian Premiere League-2018 T20 Cricket tournament starting from 7th April till the end of next month. Many fans would be excited this time for the return of Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) with the former Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni back as captain of CSK and Ajinkya Rahane replacing the tainted Steve Smith as captain of RR while New Zealand captain Kane Williamson replaced the tainted David Warner as captain of Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), earlier Shikhar Dhawan was tipped for the post. Pune Rising Supergiants and Gujarat Lions that played for last two years after the two-year suspension of CSK and RR over a cricketing scandal could not qualify this time.

The buying of selling of internationally famed cricketers, euphemistically called auction, saw most of the regular players retained adding some exciting new ones. England cricketer Ben Stokes became the costliest overseas player while Indian pacer Jaydev Unadkat the costliest domestic one-both these players are bought by RR. Some known faces remained unsold including Lasith Malinga, Martin Guptil, Hashim Amla, Ishant Sharma and many others. Destroyer Chris Gayle somehow found a place in Kings XI Punjab in the third and last round of auction. Old warhorse Yuvraj Singh also found a place in this team which is being led this time by a new captain Ravichandran Ashwin. Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) discarded Gautam Gambhir who is being lapped up by Delhi Daredevils (DD) as captain. The sensation of the T20 Tri-Series Final against Bangladesh in Colombo on 18th March, 2018, Dinesh Karthik whose 8-ball 29 won India the Nidahas Trophy, becomes the captain of KKR which would definitely cheer a lot of Kolkata fans. India captain Virat Kohli continues to lead Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) while Rohit Sharma is also retained as captain of Mumbai Indians (MI). The inaugural match between MI and CSK will be played in Mumbai on 7th April and Kolkata will see its first match on 8th April between KKR and RCB. The other venues will be Delhi, Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Mohali assigned as hometowns to the different teams.

This commercial break in terms of the IPL-2018 can be viewed as a much-needed relief after the scandalous developments in international cricket recently. While the India Vs South Africa cricket series in South Africa was a high point in competitive spirited cricket the Test duel between the hosts and Australia cricket reached the lowest.

Although India under Virat Kohli lost the 3-Test series against South Africa 2-1 during January, 2018 the cricket was highly competitive with constant ups and downs. India nearly won the series with some superlative bowling performances, and many Indian fans believed that with some more batting application India would have seen the final result in its favour. South Africa won the closely fought first and second Tests while India won the final Test convincingly. And then, the Indians were unstoppable annihilating South Africa both in the one-day and the T20 series. Australia played the Test Series against South Africa during March, 2018 winning the first one and losing the second one. The series was looking up at that point of time despite the ugly off-field confrontation of David Warner with South African keeper Quinton de Kock during the first Test in Durban.

The ball-tampering incident happened on March 24, 2018 on the third day of the third Test being played in Cape Town involving Cameron Bancroft, and then skipper Steve Smith and his deputy David Warner-both being in the know as well as in the leadership. The deliberate and cold-blooded tactic shocked the whole world, both cricketing and non-cricketing, with absolute words of condemnation coming from one and all irrespective of the highest or the lowest positions of authority. Cricket Australia was swift in its action, and the implicated players accepted the punishment with lots of public tears, but with no appealing intentions. As per the latest information Cricket Australia wants to put all the lids on this most scandalous happening which is possible because as mentioned the players are not going to appeal against the punishment handed out. Of course, a lot of questions involving this shameful episode would remain unanswered forever.

Meanwhile Afghanistan cricket team qualified for the ICC World Cup-2019 against all odds and beating Ireland in its final outing. The other qualifier is the West Indies, surprisingly.

Footballer Profile – Robinho

Robson de Souza – known throughout the footballing world as Robinho – was perhaps the biggest surprise addition to Manchester City’s squad in their much publicised quest to enter British football’s elite. When the Brazilian signed from Real Madrid on the last day of the transfer window in the summer of 2008, it made everyone aware of the seriousness of the new club owners’ intentions. This was a genuine superstar coming to the City of Manchester Stadium.

Robinho has always been earmarked for great things – even the incomparable Pelé eulogised about him as a fifteen year old. Playing for the famous Santos club which the legendary Pelé had represented for so long, ‘Robi’, who had been born in Sao Paulo in 1984, quickly became their goalscoring talisman. The kidnapping from her home of his mother in the 2004/05 season, though, had a real impact on his life – even though she was released unharmed it then seemed inevitable that he would leave the country and join other prominent Brazilian players in Europe. At the end of the 2004/05 season, the player was named as the World Soccer Young Player of the Year.

The move came in July, 2005, when Robinho signed for Real, going on to score 10 goals in his first season. Although his undoubted skill was always evident at this time, it was also clear the player was having difficulties adapting to life, and the different style of football, at his new club. With Fabio Capello and, later, Bernd Schuster, Robinho was never really a regular starter for the Spanish team, even though he continued to be in the Brazil team.

The player’s time in Spain came to a distasteful conclusion. Madrid tried to include Robinho as a ‘makeweight’ in the transfer of Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United, against the player’s wishes. When the deal fell through and the Madrid hierarchy decided to offer him a new contract, Robinho refused it.

Despite looking as if he was about to sign for Chelsea, Robinho ended up at Eastlands and Manchester City, seemingly encouraged to join the club because they already had two other Brazilians on the books, Elano and Jo.

Since signing for Manchester City, Robinho has become very popular with the supporters – a popularity helped when he was seen with his wife going into the city on a bus! Many critics felt, during his first season, that his performances were very much better in games at Eastlands than in matches played away from home. Despite this, he scored 15 goals in 41games. This season, however, with the squad having been greatly boosted with the acquisition of more high class players, Robinho has been the victim of a bad ankle injury picked up playing for Brazil and so has missed most of the fixtures.

With Brazil, Robinho remains an important member of the team, scoring 19 goals so far in his 71 internationals, and he is almost certain to be integral in Brazil’s attempts to win the World Cup in South Africa in the summer.

For whom Robinho will be playing then is really anybody’s guess! Ever since his arrival, it seems he has been linked with moves away. Manchester City continually deny that he is on his way to Barcelona, Chelsea or any other number of clubs. City fans, certainly, will be hoping to see the skilful little striker linking up with Adebayor and Tevez to help the club realise their ambitions and qualify for next season’s Champions League.

Who Knows? If they do succeed, then perhaps Robinho might be there again next season.

League of Legends Influence Points Guide

League of Legends is one of the most popular games with over twelve million daily worldwide players. This multi-player game not only has a number of challenges that hold the attention of its player, but it is also full of surprises and challenges that keep even the most hardcore gamer enthralled. I’ve been playing the game for over 3 years and still am addicted to it!

If you’re trying to get influence points (also known as IP), continue reading this League of Legends influence points guide.

IP is a measure of your summoner’s influence. This measure is taken based on your performance in the Fields of Justice. In other words, during game play in the Fields of Justice, the length of time you play and the skills your team has will increase your chance at gaining and earning influence points.

League of Legends is played when two teams of champions compete to be the first to kill off the other team’s Nexus. When you try to reach the enemy nexus, there are a series of challenges and minions needed to be killed along the way. The game is based on a set of maps you can choose to play on known as the Fields of Justice.

Influence points are used for a number of advantages throughout the game. For example, enough IP points will let you permanently unlock champions giving you a strong advantage over the opposing team by letting you expand your champion pool and counter-pick. What I mean by this, is if you unlock more champions, you can expand what you get good at and pick a strong champion to beat who you anticipate to verse.

If you already have a favorite champion in the game, you can use your influence points to purchase runes for your champion. Runes increase your champion’s abilities to make him or her stronger and more powerful. A good League of Legends Guide explains what you need to do in order to get more runes and how to best use your influence points for your team.

There is time and base caps for IP points that dictate how much IP you earn. For example, you get a sweet IP bonus for a win every 24 hours. Win a game each day to load up on IP.

Because there are a number of intricacies in the game, this League of Legends influence points guide is only a part of what you should know to get good at the game. For more help, read a good LoL guide written by someone who has played the game for a long time.
