Music Is a Way of Life

Mankind has always had a certain type of rhythm in them, since early days of mankind, the way we could hear sounds and sometimes hum to something while doing some work has been miraculous. I don’t know where music began but I do know that it will always be there.

Throughout the years music has changed a lot of people’s lives and styles of the way they even dress, move, walk and even talk. Look at the 70’s and 80’s style it came with funk music and the afro came in with the different styles of dressing up. All the disco lights and party themes came in making people highly fashionable. Now people dress in different ways according to the styles of music they listen to, an example is you take for instance a person who listens to the hip hop genre music he/she would wear baggy clothes and sneakers with a straight cap and shades along with jewelry or actually known as «bling bling». A person who listens to reggae would wear the Jamaican flag coloures because that’s one of the places where it started form, the coloures red, green and yellow and a little bit of black and sometimes the people would have dreadlocks hair styles to show that they are Rastafarian and they listen to reggae music. And then you get people who listen to dance music they where funky styles etc. There are a lot of other dressing styles and it’s all because of the love of music.

I truly believe that if we never had any music life would be depressing, I mean even soccer players would tell you that to be a soccer player you have to have rhythm, example Brazilian soccer players talk about the salsa and samba dance which adds to their football skills and they say «if you can’t dance then you can’t play football».

Look at the way radio stations play music, they make millions of this talented people who create the music with their performances and shows etc. Musical instruments are used everywhere to make beautiful sounds and bring smiles to little children’s faces. Rock music also one of the world’s major styles of music and even has people dressing and living that certain style because of the music they listen to.

Music is a way of life, it has power, control, love, rhythms, flow, etc because it can turn a person into violent or very calm and collected. People enjoy parties, without music I believe parties are boring I wouldn’t have fun listening to someone talking to me the whole day.

So music plays a very important role in life and it’s a way of life itself.

The Different Types Of Soccer Cleat Patterns

Soccer shoes may not improve your playing skills, but they definitely ensure that you put your best foot forward and give the best performance. There are so many brands offering all kinds of cleats. The most striking thing about the modern cleats is that they tend to be very colorful and appealing. But apart from looking at the colors and beautiful designs, you should ensure that you select the perfect pattern to match that play surface or ground.

Wearing the wrong type of cleat will not only make your play uncomfortable and minimize your chances of giving your best but you could also end up injuring yourself. Below are the different patterns you will find to make it easy for you to select the most suitable pair for your play.

Cleats for firm ground – Cleat patterns created for firm ground cover any field type that is generally dry in all climates where there are less rainy days. They are the standard cleats that you find in shoe stores and are accompanied by letters FG. In this category you will find long, narrow bladed studs and rounded studs. The rounded ones make better choices for damp ground, whereas the blades are best for dryer surfaces and offer overall stability. These cleats may also be referred to as hard ground cleats.

Cleats for soft ground – The cleats usually feature rounded metal studs with few contact points with the ground. They are best for wet surfaces and suitable for areas that receive lots of rain. The designs are done in such a way that the cleats, cut through the mud and offer reliable grip even under the wet conditions. The metallic cleats are however not a preference for many coaches because of the possible damage they risk when they meet the other players’ legs. You might want to check with your coach before selecting them.

Cleats for indoor courts – They are for smaller soccer games and designed for the artificial materials in the indoor courts. They feature a flat bottom and flex points or fins that run across the bottom part of the short so they remain comfortable and flexible. They do not only work well for indoor soccer, but also other indoor activities and can be just right for firm ground uses too even though they may not be recommended for those.

Cleats for turf surfaces – Astroturf is a material created to mimic a natural grass playfield and there are cleats intended for such. These soccer shoes will usually come with plenty of short stubby studs all over the bottom part so they are able to offer proper traction of the face grass surfaces. They come with an extra layer of lacquer that protects them from the artificial grass that can be abrasive; they are therefore glossier in appearance.

You can easily tell the cleats apart by the initials they are displayed with denoting the surfaces they are made for. You can also use reviews and guides to select the most suitable sports cleats for your use.

Gerald Green Dunks Or How To Increase Vertical Jump

Ok, Gerald Green finished second this year in the Slam Dunk Contest (2008). His birthday-cake-dunk was sick, but the one between the legs with no shoes on wasn’t necessary – he can do better!

But have you seen Gerald Green’s 2005 summer league dunk where he – just like Vince Carter at the 2000 Olympics – jumped over a 7 footer for the dunk?

What about the 2005 McDonald’s All-American Slam Dunk Contest that he won? And in case you forgot, Green won the NBA Slam Dunk contest in 2007!

In this contest, Green first made a two-handed slam on an alley-oop pass off the side of the backboard from teammate Paul Pierce. Then he jumped over fellow finalist Nate Robinson while wearing the No. 7 Celtics jersey of 1991 dunk champion Dee Brown – and shielding his eyes in the crook of his elbow in an homage to Brown’s memorable no-look dunk.

«I knew they were going to be tough, because those guys had the creativity and the dunking style,» Green said about the famous judges Michael Jordan, Dominique Wilkins, Kobe Bryant, Vince Carter and Julius Erving.

«I tried to come out with something they never did before, and hopefully they could give me a score.» – Gerald Green

At the end of the contest, G-Money effortlessly leaped over a 3-foot table for a windmill jam.

«That boy has some serious hops,» Nate Robinson said after that dunk, eyes wide. «Kid can fly.»

Actually, Gerald Green has the highest vertical leap in the NBA by now – 48 inches!

The 6’8»/ 200 lbs. shooting guard jumps so high, he has to watch out not hitting the rim with his head! On one occasion in high school, Green went higher than expected and cut his head on the rim.

«If you’re trying to glide, you want to get your footwork right,» said Green. »If you don’t get your footwork right, you won’t accelerate as far or glide as far or get as high as you need to get. Then, at the height of the dunk, you want to reach your peak. That’s where you want to get the ball where it needs to be. Sometimes I don’t reach my peak. I dunk and then I seem to go a little higher then I fall down. It has happened before. I’m just trying to put the ball in a certain area.» – Gerald Green

By now, you may think:

So what? It’s great for him that he can jump that high,

but how can I increase my vertical?

Well, besides the excellent, but common exercises like jump rope, calf raises and squats, there are some very effective exercises only few people know about:

Thrust ups:

Starting position: Stand with your feet shoulder width apart, and close your knees. Then jump up only using your calves, only bending at the ankles. When your land, go jump again as high as possible.

Burnouts:

Starting position: feet shoulder width apart, knees closed. Now go up on your toes und jump up only using your toes.

Laundry Jumps:

Take an object – a bag or something like that – and try to jump laterally over it. It can be between 10 and 20 inches high. Try to jump as high and far as you can back and forth over object.

Power Skip

Jump and try to bring your left leg up to your chest. Then do the same with the other leg.

For more exercises and crucial things to know about vertical jump (f.e. why often what you «don’t» do is more important then what you «do» do) please take a look at this page I strongly recommend:

p.s.

Did you know that Green plays with only four and a half fingers on his shooting hand? He ripped his ring finger on a nail when he was about eight and doctors were forced to amputate down to the knuckle.

p.p.s.

In case you haven’t heard yet – the 22-year old Gerald Green was released by the Houston Rockets…

Messi Vs Maradona

Who is the world’s greatest footballer? Many currently place that mantel at the feet of the talismanic Barcelona front man Lionel Messi. But is Messi the greatest EVER player? This is food for thought and in order to come to a conclusion it is important to compare Messi with another Argentinean, a man so often lauded as the greatest footballer of all time – Diego Maradona.

To adequately compare Messi and Maradona it is important to examine their playing styles, abilities, achievements at domestic and international level and the eras in which they both played.

Lionel Messi

Messi began life as an attacking midfielder, but in recent years has been deployed as a forward (rather than a traditional striker). His skill and creativity on the ball means he can dictate the game by dropping deeper, but can push forward and score goals with terrifying regularity.

In the 2012/13 season Messi broke Gerd Müller’s goal-scoring record of 85 goals in a calendar year, a record that stood for 40 years. This has led to many pundits, fans, players and media outlets to proclaim him the greatest player of all time.

Messi’s ability is undeniable, especially as, at the age of 11 he was diagnosed with a growth hormone deficiency, which lends to his small stature and meant he had to develop pace, touch and skill at a young age in order to compete at the highest level.

Despite having won everything at domestic level, question marks still remain over Messi’s ability to transfer his form to the international stage. In an Argentina shirt he doesn’t appear to possess the same magic as in a Barcelona jersey.

There are also reservations as to whether Messi could deliver playing in other European league’s; the Premier League for example. The game in England is much more physical and fast paced than in Spain and some ponder whether Messi would be as good playing outside of Spain.

Diego Maradona

A generation (or so) before Lionel Messi there was another Argentinean who wore the famous scarlet and blue of Barcelona. His name was Diego Armando Maradona.

The mercurial Argentinean was technically gifted, a playmaker and great strategist. His skill on the ball was unrivalled and despite being an attacking midfielder, Maradona regularly scored at a rate that would have rivalled most strikers.

Many fans, pundits, experts, players and critics regard Maradona as perhaps the greatest footballer who ever lived.

He began his career at Argentinos Juniors before transferring to Brazilian heavyweights Boca Juniors, where he spent a season. It was then that he moved to FC Barcelona for a (then) world record fee of £5 million. A record he himself would later break with a £6.9 million move to Napoli. Maradona spent two injury plagued seasons at the Nou Camp, but still managed 38 goals in 58 games and helped the team to win both domestic cups.

Following several disputes Maradona transferred to Italian club Napoli in 1984. It was here he enjoyed the most successful spell of his career, winning 2 Seria A titles, the Coppa Italia, the Italian Super Cup and the UEFA Cup. He also finished as top scorer in Serie A at the end of the 1987/88 season.

Maradona also produced on the international stage, where he was instrumental in Argentina’s World Cup win in 1986 and runner up finish in 1990. He also won the World Cup Golden Boot in 1986.

Conclusion

Whilst Messi may have won more domestic trophies and broken more goal-scoring records, there is no doubting that Maradona played in a much tougher and more physically demanding era of the sport. He also played in weaker sides than Messi and perhaps most importantly, produced at international level. Its unlikely Messi will move to a smaller unfashionable team to elevate them to greatness like Napoli. After all his current Barcelona side is built to accommodate him. The support of numerous talented Spanish internationals such Xavi and Iniesta combine with Messi to create a potent attacking force. One could argue this set-up make the diminutive Argentinean look better than he actually is.

It is worth noting that Maradona is an outspoken and patriotic man, whilst the young pretender is more introverted and timid in nature. This is partly the reason why he doesn’t enjoy the same level of adulation from his home country.

Comparing them is difficult as the eras they played in were so different, but taking everything into account Maradona edges Messi as the greatest ever footballer. With the world Cup 2014 looming in Brazil Messi does have the opportunity to turn this round.

The Fall And Fall Of Serie A

For him to start this game with players like Michael Silverstre, who had not played for over 6 months, Rio Ferdinand, who got injured against Middlesboro on Sunday, leave out Paul Scholes, Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo showed the contempt he had for Roma’s chances and they did not let him down.

Frankly Italian football has been an embarrassment for 2 seasons now and it is time they take stock of how far they have fallen from grace. All they do is bicker about refereeing decisions and constantly gripe about the success of Inter Milan saying they are being favoured by referees, that they have stopped getting world class talent into their league.

AC Milan are actually thinking of bringing back Andriy Shevchenko back to their team. It is bad enough that they have the oldest squad in the world but instead of trying to reduce the average age, they keep buying players that are past it.

Managers are sacked and rehired on a constant basis showing that the people that are running the clubs do not have a clue. What is the point in sacking a manager if you are going to bring in someone worse, only to sack him and then rehire the previous manager?

This is not something that happens once in a long while, it happens very often with different clubs.

It says a lot that Juventus that was relegated last season are 3rd in the league with what is at best an average manager and average bunch of players but unlike Roma they have the will to win. They might not have the quality that Roma possesses but in players like Gigi Buffon, Alessandro Del Piero, Pavel Nedved, Mauro Camonaresi and David Trezeguet they have players that would always make a difference to any team in the world.

There is not a chance that with the team Ferguson put out that Juventus would not have scored against United because Fergie took a huge chance and he possibly thought and quite rightly that Luciano Spaletti is nowhere near the level required to win the champions league.

How else would you explain his putting out 1 striker against an injured Ferdinand and Gerard Pique or his playing Cassetti instead of Max Tonnetto? To be fair he did not anything that would have changed my beliefs that his relative success in seriea is due to the lack of good football teams and managers currently as 5-10 years ago he would not have been in charge of a team in mid-table never mind a team challenging for the championship.

AC Milan could quite conceivably come 4th with a side shown up to be also-rans by Arsenal in the San Siro as they are far too old to be challenging for the championship. Teams like Fiorentina and Udinese would be totally embarrassed by foreign teams if they did qualify for champions league next season as they are not good enough to represent Italy.

Inter Milan for all their faults are the only team in Italy that can compete with the other powerhouses in Europe as they have the money and personnel, they just lack the manager. Juventus would have to overhaul what they have and change managers as well to stand a chance as they can only be competitive in a second rate championship that SerieA has sadly become but not in Europe.

Back to the Roma versus Manchester United match, it was cringe worthy to see players like Anderson, Owen Hargreaves, Park Ji-Sung just penetrate through Roma so easily when there is nothing penetrative about them. It just makes you wonder why the manager would persist with a player like David Pizarro and when was the last time that Taddei put in a good performance to warrant a starting place?

It was just too easy for United yesterday and I was shocked to read that some people thought Roma were not an embarrassment just because they were not trounced 7-1 again this season. There were even awarded a non-existent penalty but such is their fragile ego that Daniele De Rossi blasted it well over the bar.

It is just very sad to see a league that was once great degenerate into what it is nowadays with fans just talking about Inter Milan allegedly being favoured with sinister connotations as the standard of football so bad that watching Bundesliga seems more palatable.

I would like for them to get their act together and stop concentrating on conspiracies and start building teams worth watching with character and verve. Unfortunately the mentality is not like that, Roma for instance would actually think it is a step in the right direction that they got beat 2-0 and 1-0 and count the extremely marginal chances that they created.
