Liberia Casinos

Liberia has been such a disastrous mess in recent decades that it would be amazing to find anything that still operated in the country, let alone casinos. However, that undervalues the resourcefulness of the Liberians themselves for Liberia’s casinos in fact amount to two.

The country was first founded as a refuge for slaves freed in the United States, so it always had something of a tension between the more educated returning slaves and the indigenous population. This continued down the years, from the founding in the 1850’s to 1980. The country was run by descendants of those freed slaves and in some ways remained in a time warp: until the 1980’s, the President and his ministers, for example, still wore Victorian clothes, tail coats, and top hats (and can you imagine that in the African heat?).

Samuel Doe, who was descended from one of the local tribes, in 1980, overthrew that ruling class, and the old leaders were executed by firing squad upon the beach. There then followed some 25 years of vicious violence in which hundreds of thousands of the inhabitants were killed, often in grossly brutal ways. This finally came to an end with a UN sponsored peace mission just a couple of years ago.

With that sort of background and recent history, plus the destitution and poverty of the country and the people, it might be surprising to learn that there are any Liberia casinos at all: But, it seems to be a fact that in such war zones and despotic dictatorships that a couple will stay open, so that those at the top can gamble the money they extort.

List of Liberia’s casinos:

– Casino Monrovia

– Casino Oceano

The Oceano has roulette, blackjack, and poker tables, as well as slots. Both of the Liberian casinos are in Monrovia, the capital.

As an example of how divided the country was (and as something of an explanation for the rage that drove the two recent civil wars), the current President is the daughter of the very first indigenous Liberian to even be elected to the national legislature, let alone anything more important. Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf is actually, by the standards of that part of Africa, over qualified to be a politician: she’s worked for both Citibank and the World Bank. Her opponent in the recent elections was actually George Weah, an international soccer player.

With the recent peace (and the involvement of the UN in its imposition means it will probably stick), it is likely that the gangster element will disappear from Liberia’s casinos, and it might be even true that the sector will expand.

Get The Soccer Edge With This Simple Technique

Soccer is a great game. With so much running up and down the field and fast paced passes you can really feel your adrenaline pumping. As you play soccer regularly as a forward you have to practice stopping on a dime-sometimes almost literally. Your spine and nervous system take the majority of the beating while your knees and hips do the rest. You are not only stopping quickly but you are changing direction which puts strain on your lower back and spine. As a goalie you may jump in all directions and fall on the ground. You can hyperextend your back and hurt your spine. With regular chiropractic adjustments you can keep your spine and nervous system in top notch condition.

But of course you may not endure severe injuries. You may only see your performance decrease as time wears down on your spinal health. Over time-if left unattended-this regular wear and tear can reduce your game. It can have an effect on how well you play and how quickly you can run or jump or change positions on the field. It can be the difference between winning and losing. But there are ways you can avoid this and keep your game in top notch shape on the field and off.

Improving your sports performance can be done using a combination of regular practice and chiropractic care. You can improve your health with regular chiropractic care whether you are a young athlete with aspirations of professional leagues or you are a weekend warrior who wants to continue doing sports as you age. Performance chiropractic care will enhance your overall health and reaction times to ensure you are at your best on the pitch.

Brian Haynes the winner of three American Professional Soccer League titles. Says: "Chiropractic helps to prevent injuries and speeds up the recovery time when you are injured."

US World Cup Team says: "As the season progressed, virtually every player (had) been adjusted. Some enjoy it for its preventative approach, and others appreciated the relief it provides them when they have been injured."

When you turn to regular chiropractic care as a soccer player it helps your joints and your extremities. It can give particular assistance to your ankles and knees which are prone to the most damage when you play regularly.

You can ease lower back pain and get adjustments before a game or during halftime if you play professionally. This can help reduce the number of nagging injuries which occur on the field. If you want to improve your game and your health you need to recognize that your muscles and scar tissue can cause problems in soccer. When you use chiropractic care it can help reduce the number of sore muscles or scar tissue that develops into bigger issues.

You can reap many benefits from regular chiropractic care for your game and your health. Train hard and play hard so you can play at your best, but if you are looking for that "gold medal edge" than see your performance care chiropractor.

Synthetic Vs Leather Soccer Cleats

Soccer cleats are available in many different materials and each has its own positive and negative points. Choosing the best possible cleats is certain to help improve your all-round playing performance and potential. The most common types of soccer cleats include those made in real leather and the alternatives using synthetic material.

Here is an overview of the different materials:

Leather

The soccer cleats in real leather are seen as the most comfortable and give the best possible fit. This material can easily conform or stretch to match the unique shape of the individual player’s foot over time. However, this stretching quality can be a negative on occasion, especially if it starts to over stretch which means it is necessary to invest in a new pair of cleats.

Leather is a thicker material compared to the synthetic alternatives, so it has the ability to give greater protection to the feet. Plus, with this type of cleat conforming to the shape of the foot it is certain to help with ball control.

However, the leather material does have a few minor issues. For one, leather is quite absorbent which means the cleats will be more difficult to clean and become heavier, while in use in the wet playing conditions.

Hybrid leather is a useful solution to help those players that often play in the wet condition. This type of cleat is made with a treated leather and synthetic quarter to improve the all-round water resistance.

A particular type of leather that is very light and supple is kangaroo leather. It is still able to maintain the strength of traditional leather, but this is a soft material that gives superior performance with a soft touch and great ball control.

Synthetic

Cleats in synthetic materials have seen a lot of improvement in recent times that has left them quite similar to the alternatives in leather. It is a material that gives greater options with designs and also holds color well. Plus, this is the preferred type of cleat for wet conditions because it is more able to resist water penetration. The modern cleats are starting to become thinner and lighter to help maintain the feel and control of the ball.

However, it is essential to look for cleats made with a high-quality material. The low-cost options can be quite heavy and feel less comfortable to wear. Also, it is beneficial to wear the cleats in a breathable material.

Formula 1 Rising Stars: Interview With Valtteri Bottas

Valtteri Bottas is regarded as one of Formula 1’s rising stars. And rightly so; in 2014, in only his second season in the sport, the Finn secured six podiums and finished fourth in the Drivers’ Championship, outperforming his more experienced teammate Felipe Massa.

Bottas’ breakthrough season greatly contributed to the resurgence of the Williams F1 team, which saw them finish third in the Constructors’ Championship; their best result since 2003’s second place.

The 2015 campaign, however, hasn’t quite got off to the start that the clear potential of the Mercedes-powered FW37 would suggest: Bottas failed to take the start of the Australian Grand Prix after injuring his back in qualifying, and he and teammate Massa found their race pace lacking in the searing heat of Malaysia.

I spoke exclusively to the Finn about his rise to Formula 1 and his expectations for the year ahead.

EH: You first got behind the wheel of a kart at the tender age of five, but your interest began a year earlier when you, along with your Dad, discovered a kart race during the summer. Can you tell me about that day and then your first experience in a kart the following year?

VB: Well, that day, I was actually going to Lahti (a town in Finland) with my father and we saw a sign about the go-kart Finnish championship race. We went there just to check it out, none of us was familiar with the sport. When I saw it the first time I thought it was really cool and wanted to get in to try one! My fist time actually trying a go-kart was about a year later, I was about 5-6 years old, and I actually crashed in the first corner of the first lap, as I did not use the brakes, and went off to the barrier. Nobody actually explained to me how it worked and they only said «Off you go»! That day, I learned from my mistake.

EH: In 2008 you won both the Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup and the Formula Renault 2.0 Northern European Cup Championships. That is an enormous achievement, you must have been very proud of your efforts that year. How difficult was it competing in two championships?

VB: It was an important year and difficult too, as [I had] lots of races between two different championships. [But I needed] to get the support to move up to Formula 3. But overall it was good to get as much mileage as possible, the season went really well and I won both championships. This is also how I met and started working with my management (Mika Häkkinen, Didier Coton and Toto Wolff) so it was important to show them good results!

EH: You have had a very impressive season last year with six podiums, including your first Formula 1 podium at the Austrian Grand Prix on an unfamiliar track. Can you put into words how that felt and what thoughts were going through your head on the final lap, knowing you were mere seconds away from claiming your first podium?

VB: Austria was a very special moment, we had been chasing the podium for a long time and the last lap, even though you should never make any plans before crossing the finish line, I started thinking (as there was enough margin at the front and back) how cool it would be to cross the line and make the podium and meet my team when I get back, as the whole team had been working really hard for good results. The podium was very special, to see everyone there, it was a really nice day which I will remember forever.

EH: Last year Formula 1 veteran Felipe Massa joined the Williams team replacing Maldonado. What did you learn from his experience and knowledge of the sport, and how did it feel beating your more accomplished teammate in only your second year?

VB: My experience as a teammate of Felipe has been very good; obviously he is very experienced, he has been in different situations, car set-ups, different conditions, tracks. It has been good to work with him even though, as a racer, my goal is to be quicker than my teammate (whoever that is) and get more points.

EH: For a long time the Williams team appeared to be in racing ‘No Man’s Land’, but 2014 saw a dramatic shift in fortunes for the team. What do you think have been the major contributing factors to this remarkable turnaround for the team?

VB: I think the arrival of [Chief Technical Officer] Pat Symonds made a very big difference since joining the team mid-2013. He has been reallocating people at the factory, bringing new people to the team. Now we have the right people to the right positions and that definitely brought the results back. Another major contributing factor is the switch to Mercedes-Benz power units.

EH: For a country with a relatively small population, Finland has delivered three Formula 1 World Champions (and perhaps soon a fourth). What is it about your home country that sees it produce so many world class drivers in racing and rallying?

VB: First of all Finland is a motorsport country, it is part of our culture – we simply love F1 and rallying and it is true there are quite a few very good drivers from our country. Also, the level of go-karting (at a young age) is very high so this could explain it also. The mentality of Finns is also good for the sport, we can keep focused and don’t stress about things too much which is very important in F1 in my opinion.

EH: What are your first memories of following Formula 1 as a child and which driver/s did you most enjoy watching race?

VB: The first car I remember is the blue and yellow Williams car – my favourite in the beginning. One race that stands out as a race is Mika Häkkinen’s first win in 1997 in Jerez! I remember this race very clearly.

EH: After your most successful Formula 1 year to date in 2014, what are your expectations for 2015?

VB: In 2015 the competition is going to be much closer between the teams.

Travel Style Tips: How To Dress Appropriately In Qatar

With Qatar winning the rights to host the 2022 World Cup, this tiny sheikdom on the northeasterly coast of the Arabian peninsula will become an increasingly popular travel destination. Being a predominantly Muslim country, the appropriate dress code may pose a bit of a dilemna for women traveling there from other countries. As the way a woman dresses in Qatar may influence how the locals view and treat her, here are a few travel style tips and simple courtesies that will ensure local values in Qatar are respected and traveling there an enjoyable experience.

The key to dressing appropriately in Qatar is to consider what Qatari women themselves wear. They are completely covered from head to toe in lose, non-revealing robes, with faces more than likely covered by a veil. Although the Qatari’s don’t necessarily expect Western visitors to dress in the same manner, what it does spell out to visitors is that wearing revealing clothes is not appropriate in this country. It is considered more respectful to wear loose-fitting clothes that cover the limbs:

1) Do have a look at the range of long cotton robes for women that can be purchased in the shopping malls, souqs, or even large supermarkets in Qatar. The selection of colours and prints have become wider and more fashionable over the years. Do wear these robes on your visit to Qatar as they will be far more comfortable in the heat and you will be much better received by the locals.

2) Do wear trousers, skirts and dresses that are well below the knee. Shorts, even if they are knee length, are inappropriate, as are skimpy skirts. Do not show any leg.

3) Do leave any tight fitting or low cut clothes at home. They will not be appropriate for Qatar.

4) Do keep the chest and shoulder area covered. Bring blouses or shirts that have either 3/4; or long sleeves. If bringing T-shirts, make sure that they are not tight and have the appropriate sleeve length. Keep the midriff well covered.

5) Take a chiffon scarf that you can fold up and pack into your handbag and use as head cover if required or when visiting mosques.

6) Consider the type of bathing suit that you bring to the Qatari beaches or hotel swimming pool. A bikini will attract unwanted attention. A full piece, with a modest cover-up when out of the water, will be more appropriate.

Women are expected to dress modestly in Qatar. And while most likely no Qatari will ever tell you that you shouldn’t be wearing something, it doesn’t mean that they will not take offense, which may in turn influence the manner in which you will be treated. Taking the time to follow a few simple travel style tips, practice some simple courtesies and conform to local dress standards will not only help to show respect for the local culture, it will avoid offending the locals.

Everything You Need To Know About Soccer Shoes

As a soccer player, you know the importance of having the right soccer shoes. When you wear the wrong ones you not only have problems controlling the ball, you are also more likely to hurt yourself when playing.

Signs it's time to replace your soccer shoes

Most of them are designed to last for a long time but it comes a time when you have to replace them in order to continue playing your favorite sport. If they have begun feeling uncomfortable, it's time to replace them. You should also replace them if you can no longer tell the brand they come from. Experts recommend that you also consider replacing them if you do not like their current look.

Factors to consider

As mentioned, for you to enjoy playing soccer you have to have the right soccer shoes. When making the purchase, you should consider the nature of the playground. If the playground is hard, you should go for those with small studs that will not dig into the ground. On the other hand, if the ground is soft, go for soccer shoes that will easily dig into the ground so providing you with optimum balance.

You should also consider your playing position. Different players require different skills. As a striker, you need soccer shoes that will provide you with balance and also give you enough room to shoot the ball. As a defender, you should go for those that are tough and will allow you to take the pressure from the opponents. They should have strong studs that will allow you to stick to your ground. If you are a goalkeeper, you should wear those that will allow you to stay balanced and at the same time have an easy time diving in order to reach for the ball.

The material used is another important factor to consider when making the purchase. If you want them to last for a long time, go for those made from leather. If you are strapped for cash, go for those made from synthetic leather.

How to take care of your soccer shoes

After you have bought them, you need to take good care of them for them to last for a long time and also be comfortable to wear. After every game, you should clean and air dry them. Doing this not only gets rid of dirt, it also removes bacteria that would destroy the shoe. You should also store the soccer shoes properly. The best way of going about it is setting them on a newspaper in an area away from direct sunlight. Also, ensure that the area does not have moisture.

Conclusion

This is what you need to know about soccer shoes. When buying them, ensure that you buy them from a reputable store. Also, ensure that you buy those of the right size. This is to ensure that they are comfortable to wear.

Chelsea Set to Dominate European Football

There is a new heavyweight force in European football, they are being bankrolled apparently by the Russian economy, they mean business, and their name is Chelsea FC Chelsea Football Club has always been a decent club in the second strata of English clubs. In London alone Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur have invariably been ahead of the Chelsea Blues, even West Ham have often put Chelsea in the shade. But no longer, for in the season 2004-2005, Chelsea won the English Premier League title for the first time in fifty years, their only previous winning season.

But they have not stopped there, in the new season 2005-2006 they are already well clear in the title race leaving all their rivals gasping, and now they have set their sights on the pinnacle of all the club trophys, the European Champions League . Chelsea have never won the Champions League, indeed no London club ever has. And it is clear that their charismatic manager Jose Mourinho is intent on winning the Champions League again, he did so with his previous club Porto, of Portugal.

So what of the traditional English giants? Manchester United, often described as the world's richest football club, have fallen into the hands of the Glazer family of Tampa Bay fame, but they reportedly needed to borrow half a billion pounds to buy United, a debt the club now shoulders. Spending on new players has so far been thin on the ground and United's brusque Glaswegian manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, has admitted that United, for so long England's most successful club, can not compete with Chelsea when it comes to buying players. The hordes of United fans are not amused, the natives are growing restless.

Arsenal, London's biggest and most successful club, lost their skipper and driving force Patrick Vieira last summer, he moved to Juventus in Italy for £ 12 million pounds and with their star striker Thierry Henry suffering fitness problems, they picked up some uncharacteristic defeats at unfashionable clubs like West Bromwich Albion and Middlesbrough. This is their last season at their famous old Highbury Stadium before they move to their new purpose built Emirates stadium almost next door. The increased capacity of 60,000 will unduly give their French manager Arsene Wenger more money to spend next year, but of course they have to pay for that new ground too. Far from challenging Chelsea again, it would seem that Arsenal are more likely to fall further behind.

That leaves Liverpool and Newcastle. News comes through just today that the American Kraft Company and family are interested in investing in Liverpool FC, possibly even buying the club outright just like Manchester United fifty miles up the road, but that is some way down the line. And they too are seeking to build a brand new stadium on Stanley Park and of course that all costs big money. Despite last year's freakish win in the Champions League, Liverpool's league form this season has again been patchy, and that included a 4-1 walloping by Chelsea on their own Anfield pitch. The idea that Liverpool might challenge Chelsea for the title remains a far-fetched one. Newcastle, England's second best supported club are gradually improving, and they have signed England's center forward Michael Owen, but they still remain unconvincing at the top level. They have not won the title since Noah was seen building his ark, or so it sees, and they are not going to do so this season either.

So although it is very popular for foreign investors to snap up the leading English (and Scottish) football clubs, it appears that only Roman Abramovich at Chelsea has the muscle to buy the best players around. He is the only one to put unlimited funds on the table. Top class players now command a transfer fee of £ 40 million each and whereas Manchester United may afford one of them a season, Chelsea's purse looks bottomless. They have already spent £ 220 + million and are still in the market to buy again when the transfer window re-opens in January.

They have already achieved success by winning at home, now the European Champion's League is the Holy Grail for them, a trophy they are now the outright favorites to win with the odds layers. And astonishingly they have achieved their success to date with an array of strikers who have not really cut the mustard. Mutu the Romanian, was promptly sacked for drug taking, Crespo the Argentinian, was sent out to Milan on loan last season, and though he is back now he is hardly setting the world afire, or even playing that often, Gudjohnson an Icelander, plays more often than not, the muscular Drogba from the Ivory Coast, seems to have finally claimed the number nine shirt as his own, yet many blues followers still remain unconvinced about him, so it would seem that Chelsea may still be looking for another proven goal scorer come January, especially after a recent rare defeat at Manchester United.

It would take a brave man to back against Chelsea in any competition at the moment. But if you'd like to, you can still have a free $ 30 dollar bet at Betfair.com by entering the code 6CHE3VPWJ when prompted. But one thing is for sure; no one would be surprised if this time next year the Premier League trophy AND the Champions League trophy were both on display in the Chelsea boardroom. It seems that only the Italian giants Milan and Juventus, and the Spanish top two, Real Madrid, and most especially Barcelona with their Brazilian superstar, are obviously soon to be the world player of the year, Ronaldinho, might stop the London blues. It really does seem as if we have entered a new era in European and world football, or if you prefer the ridiculous name that no one ever uses, Soccer. Chelsea fans have never had it so good while everyone else is left gasping in their wake, for it is a fact that Chelsea Football Club has raised the bar for everyone else to follow. Time will tell if anyone can.
