Canada’s Lighthouses on the West Coast Trail

Canada’s 51 remaining staffed light stations, down from over 800 about 100 years ago, have been the subject of controversy for the last few decades. Canada’s Coast Guard has been on a long campaign to automate or decommission many of the country’s lights that aid mariners through passages and to shores along the coast. Two of these guardians stand watch over the section of coastline traversed by the West Coast Trail, the Pachena Light Station and the Carmanah Light Station.

The Carmanah Light, located about midway along the trail, is an old style lighthouse, built in 1891. From the forest trail, you have to hike out a little way to get there. If you are planning on carrying on along the beach trail, then access is through the station’s grounds and the down a steep walkway.

The light keepers tend to be solitary folk, so don’t expect to see them. But do look around at the results of years of this lifestyle on beautiful Carmanah Point. There is a garden labyrinth near one of the houses, and a whale skeleton laid out as part of the landscaping beside a sidewalk. The views off the point are incredible, reaching out for tens of kilometers on clear days. If your timing is right, you may be treated to a Coast Guard helicopter landing at the station to bring in people or supplies.

The Pachena Light Station is directly off the trail, near Pachena Bay. It is possible to visit this lighthouse as a day trip from the trail entrance at Pachena Bay, just out of Bamfield. The station is 10 km from the trailhead, so plan for a whole day of hiking to walk out, have lunch, take photos, and walk back.

The Pachena Light Station was built in 1906, also in the traditional lighthouse shape, after the devastating loss of a ship, the Valencia, near this point. The grounds of this station are more pastoral than at Carmanah. The Pachena light is atop a cliff that drops down to the sea, and this is obvious when going out to the actual lighthouse and looking down. However, you get the sense of a quietness when entering these grounds from the forest trail, contrasted to the sense of windswept exposure when leaving the forest and entering the station at Carmanah.

Both light stations have steel tower winch systems for transferring cargo off ships on to the land. For the most part these systems are idle. Those rare few who get to see the Coast Guard staff operating these winch systems get a rare treat. So much of both light stations is a testament to human engineering and endurance, and they are rarely seen in real action.

So if you plan to journey down the West Coast Trail, or just visit Pachena Bay at Bamfield, take the time to stop by and appreciate the light stations that work around the clock to keep all who travel the nearby waters safe.

Improve Your Health With Pomegranate Juice and Tulsi Tea

In recent years, interest in health and well-being has been steadily increasing. First it started with more and more people exercising and going to the gym. Now people are also becoming interested in eating healthy and being more aware of what they put in their bodies.

Eating organic food that has been grown or cultivated naturally, without harmful pesticides, is becoming more and more popular. Whereas in the past, the only way to find organic produce was to go directly to a farm or grow it yourself, it is now readily available in almost any supermarket.

Asides from consuming organic food, people are also becoming more interested in augmenting their diets with healthy food and drinks that have been known to have positive effects on the body. Some are even substituting healthier alternatives for some of their less-healthy staples. For example, more people are choosing whole grain breads instead of white bread. It's healthier and it has more fiber than the alternative.

If you're on the fence about healthy eating and still thinking of ways where you could make changes to your diet, here are a couple of suggestions on what you can add to your shopping list:

Pomegranate Juice

A pomegranate is a fruit that grows from the shrub of the same name. Today, it is grown all over the world. It is rich in antioxidants, vitamin C, and other vitamins and minerals. Studies have shown that consuming pomegranate juice can have the following benefits:

  • Good for the heart and lowers cholesterol and blood pressure.
  • May fight some forms of cancer, namely: breast cancer, lung cancer, and prostate cancer.
  • Inhibits plaque build-up in arteries.
  • May prevent Alzheimer's disease.

Tulsi Tea or Holy Basil Tea

Tulsi, or as it it known in India, Holy Basil, is a herb that has been used in India for thousands of years. It has been used in Ayurvedic medicine to treat a variety of health problems and is thought of as a panacea or a cure-all. Tulsi is considered sacred in India mostly because they say that the feeling that you get from drinking Tulsi tea can be compared to the feeling of enlightenment. Here are some of the benefits associated with it:

  • Relieves stress
  • Boosts the immune system
  • Improves stamina and strength
  • Relieves the symptoms of fever, cold, and flu
  • Boosts the metabolism and promotes weight-loss
  • Lowers blood sugar levels

Lionel Messi V Cristiano Ronaldo – Who Is the Greatest?

Last night saw yet another epic El Classico where Lionel Messi and Cristano Ronaldo continued their ongoing battle for World supremacy. Barcelona and Real Madrid played out a spectacular 2-2 draw with Ronaldo and his arch nemesis Messi scoring all of the goals. These two players are taking the art of a footballer to whole new levels, but whilst there is no denying that they are the stand-out talents of their generation, and perhaps of all-time, the ongoing question is ‘who of the two is the greatest?’ Whilst there is no definitive correct answer to this, the widely held view over recent years has been that Messi is the King and Ronaldo the very talented Prince. However, the gap between the magical Argentinean and the Portuguese adonis appears to be closing, with some feeling that Ronaldo now deserves the crown of ‘World’s Best Player’.

Despite often playing just behind the main striker, Messi seems to be able to score from anywhere and everywhere. Last season, at the age of only 24, he became Barcelona’s all-time leading scorer. In addition to that he also broke the 39 year old record which was set my German super striker Gerd Muller for most goals in a single European season. Amazingly, Ronaldo has managed a similar record to Messi and their overall ‘goals to games’ ratio since 2009 is almost identical. Despite starting his career as a winger, Ronaldo’s ‘eye for goal’ became apparent under Alex Ferguson at Manchester United. His trademark ‘dipping’ free-kicks and solo goals prompted Real Madrid to break the World transfer record to bring the Old Trafford hero to the Bernabeu. Just as Messi can often be found collecting the ball in his own half, Ronaldo often drifts back in search of possession, and is also found in wide positions tormenting the opposing left and right backs. Given the fact that neither player is what is referred to as a ‘goal poacher’ makes their records even more unbelievable.

With regard to awards, both team based and personal, Messi is the clear winner at present. He has won the Ballon d’Or three years running (much to the obvious dismay of Ronaldo!), and his La Liga and Champions League silverware outweigh Ronaldo’s.

In conclusion it is evident that both Lionel Messi and Cristano Ronaldo are head and shoulders above any other current players in World football and there are no signs of this changing any time soon. Given their relatively young ages there is every possibility that they will go down as the two greatest players in the history of the sport. For all the achievements of Pele, Maradona, Eusebio etc, there is already a case to be made that Messi and Ronaldo have matched and surpassed them all. The fact that two such players are present in the same era, playing in the same league and at almost the same ages makes the comparison slightly easier, so here goes…

Lionel Messi is currently the ‘World Greatest Footballer’ with Cristano Ronaldo an extremely close second. The fact that Lionel Messi has been officially awarded this title three years running with the Ballon d’Or adds weight to the argument. That along with minor points such as his superior assists record, the fact that he has consistently made more appearances than Ronaldo and that his all-round team-play is slightly better just edges it for the Argentinean genius at present. In Ronaldo’s defence he is the faster / stronger physical specimen, has better heading ability and does not have a Xavi or Iniesta to link up with, but this just doesn’t quite level it – for now!!!

No-See-Ems Are a Terrible Pest

No-see-ems are perhaps the most annoying pest. And 2017 is a banner year in the coastal areas of South Carolina and Georgia. But what is a no-see-em and how can you avoid them?

No-see-ems are a very small pest also called sand fleas, sand gnats, midges, punkies or other four letter words not fit to print. They aren't invisible, but certainly small enough that you don't know they are there until you feel their unmistakable bite. If you see them in sunlight, they appear like lint or dust flying in the air. But make no mistake, these lightweight, tiny particles floating around you are there for only one reason – to bite you with razor sharp teeth and suck your blood.

No-see-ems breed in moist soil. This can be the pluff mud at the edge of the marsh, in irrigated yards, and there's a special fondness for athletic fields and golf courses. If you are a soccer player, you know exactly what these blood suckers are!

This coastal area of ​​the world is a delight until the glorious days of Spring and Fall when around dusk, you are repeatedly bitten by the nearly invisible bugs referred to as flying teeth. To the locals, the only true name is No-see-ems.

These annoying pests are magnetized to your carbon dioxide as you exhale. They are also drawn in when you perspire. Their favorite location is your hair as they burrow towards your scalp and begin to feast. Bites of no-see-ems are like tiny, sharp stings as though being pricked with a needle. Then the bites immediately begin to itch.

Some victims are attacked along every square inch of exposed skin with a vengeance matched only by piranhas. Just a few moments outdoors for some can produce dozens of bites. And if you have an allergic reaction, may God help you.

No one is immune and some are like magnets. And the worst part is that if you want to be outside, so do they. Beautiful days with sunny, mild temperatures that beckon us outdoors means these monsters will be lurking.

What to do? Create a personal bubble of protection using a safe, natural product known to control no-see-ems. You can spray yourself, you can infuse your clothes, and you can even create large areas without no-see-ems by putting the product through your irrigation system!

Take back the beautiful days of Spring and Fall and control no-see-ems!

Improving Dribbling Skills for Soccer Players and Coaches with Concurrent Goal Training – Article 6

Just about everyone can dribble a soccer ball when there is no resistance coming from an opponent. Obviously however, there will be great resistance during competitive matches. So the objective here is to properly get young players comfortable and confident with dribbling while an opponent is applying pressure by endeavoring to gain possession of the ball. If any field-soccer player wants to improve, this skill is paramount.

These are the basic objectives that must be developed for young players and possibly others for maintaining possession of the ball.

1. Dribbling the soccer ball must be kept close to the feet around opponents. This is obvious.

2. But what may not be obvious is that the sense of balance of the body, needed for rapidly changing directions, must be developed.

3. Looking out around the field for open players and open spaces is another necessity. It can only be accomplished by keeping one’s head up while dribbling. This of course will not happen with newly introduced players into the game, but it is one of the dribbling objectives.

4. Another necessity for retaining the ball while dribbling is to shield it from one or more opponents.

So what is the optimum approach to improve the dribbling skills for young players?

1. In general, precious soccer practice time should not be spent on dribbling drills. Dribbling should be practiced away from the soccer practice. But, there are some exceptions:

  • (a) The youngest players must be taught the basics via dribbling drills at soccer practices. There is nothing new here.
  • (b) After say two soccer practices, end the dribbling drills at these practices. Valuable training time is needed for spending on kicks, trapping, defense, shielding, endurance etc.
  • (i)Without endurance, soccer players cannot perform to their maximum abilities
    and will make more dribbling and other errors.

    (ii)A professional should be consulted on the optimum level of endurance training.

  • (c) Then, assign homework drills. Drills that are designed to teach
  • (i)the young player balance while turning

    (ii)control of the sensitivity of touch on the ball

    (iii)players to keep the ball near the feet when moving with the ball.

  • (d) Coach demonstrations and player demonstrations should be performed so the players understand their assigned homework drill.
  • (e) At each subsequent practice (after a drill has been assigned), players should be asked to demonstrate their homework skills for about 30 seconds each. Say two players at a time–to conserve training time. After each player has shown his or her skill preforming the drill, a demonstration should be repeated by the best young dribbling player. This acts as a teaching-aid to the others.
  • (f) Every player is to own and bring an identifiably marked ball to practice. While on the subject, water and warm clothes in cold weather should also be a requirement.
  • 2. During scrimmage games, insist that players dribble with their head up and with the ball close to the feet when near opponents.

    3. The importance of shielding the soccer ball from an opponent cannot be overemphasized. Shielding properly keeps one, or possibly two or three opponents from dislodging the ball from a dribbling player.

  • (a) Various drills are designed to elevate shielding skills from its most elementary level on up. Start with little opponent pressure, as the players develop expertise add pressure to each advanced drill.
  • (b) In addition, there is another drill especially designed apply the shielding technique. It is a variation of the monkey-in-the-middle drill. When done right and constantly overseen by the coach, players properly learn to shield the ball from aggressive opponents. Furthermore, players also learn to make safer passes to «teammates».
  • The following notes should add clarity to this article.

    Note 1: Very young «talented» players often make «breakaways» and dribble the ball towards the goal unimpeded. Before taking the shot at the goal with only the goalkeeper in front, these players push the ball about two to three yards (or two or three meters) out in front of them. At this distance the ball is in an ideal position to kick it at the goal. Often these young players score against an unskillful very young goalkeeper, and of course the parents of the scoring child are elated. However, this may or may not indicate that this child will go on to be a great soccer player. That «skill» just witnessed is not a skill at all, because it was not learned. As the children progress up in age, opponent defenders ordinarily do not allow an attacker the room of two or three yards to set up the ball for the kick on goal. On older teams, this «tactic» is no longer a tactic. So what point am I making?

    Competitive soccer players need to discipline themselves in keeping the ball near their feet when opponents are near. This is a necessary skill that must be learned for dribbling as well as when making attempts at scoring. It takes training both with dribbling and while employing the various types of kicks to be competitive as a player goes on up in years.

    Note 2: Advanced players must also develop the ability to lunge in one direction while flicking the ball in the opposite direction. There are several of these feinting moves that a skillful soccer player must master, but they are beyond the scope of this article.

    Note 3: What do the young goalkeeper(s) do while the field players are training for their skills? They need to be developing their skills. They need an assistant coach to train them on defending the goal, to practice diving and punting. The coach must instruct the assistant coach in proper goalkeeping-training techniques while overseeing these techniques until the assistant coach gets it right.

    Note 4: Much of the above training information can be learned from good soccer books containing further descriptions and applicable drills.

    Sublimated Soccer Jerseys – The Indispensable Sports Wear

    In recent times ‘sublimation’ has emerged as a very popular printing method. In fact, it can be described as the inimitable face of digital printing technology that satisfies the countless desires of this dynamic consumer world. This particular process is used to print sublimated dyes on to a polyester base object or cloth with the help of a specially made inkjet printer. Heat and pressure when thrust upon the dye change into gaseous form and get absorbed into the fabric just like its own part and does not look as something imprinted. Want to know more about how this course of action is beneficial? Let this post walk you through the same.

    Easy on the pocket: Screen printing needs a great deal of setting up- separate screens, films whereas this inventive modern-day technique does not involve any such detailed list of prerequisites. As such, it is touted as a cost-effective measure.

    You get what you want! Since there is no cumbersome screen shuffling in this process, customization is effortless, unlike batch screen printing. With sublimation, soccer jersey designers can print each item keeping customer individuality in mind.

    Resilient in nature: The print generally doesn’t fade away or rind and chink hence is long-lasting. Such printing is most suitable for sports-wear as the clothes have to undergo extensive washing.

    A time-saver methodology: This new method of printing in a way saves time as with every change of print you do not need to switch back and forth the screens which was a must in the traditional style of printing.

    Weightless prints: The prints carry no supplementary weight. They simply meddle with the fabric and turn out to be one. Though this procedure uses heat and pressure, you will be astonished to see the final product. The cloth texture remains just the same with the only addition of prints.

    It should be noted that sublimation works only on polyester fabrics. Larger runs can be pricey if compared with screen printing but here again, you need to be sure what is it exactly that you want—- a customised work of art that suits your taste or old school screen printing that is by the book. Here is more of what you need to find out about them.

    Sublimated soccer jerseys are almost inevitable when it comes to choosing over other sports attires as sportsmen are known to toil hours in the field as a result of which the clothes get all soiled up with dirt and grime. If it was not for this exclusive process, the numbers and logo prints would not last long and would dwindle with frequent washing. The next time you cheer your favourite soccer player you will know that the shine of sheath on the logo or number prints is the result of the much-talked course of action. What was the face of yesteryear printing technology has been taken over by this development? Future may bring better or more advanced changes but for now, this new digital printing technique is in vogue.

    Soccer Cleats Maintenance Tips

    It really feels great to have clean, shining soccer cleats while entering into the arena- it boosts our confidence in some discreet manner. But when you’re required to master the sport with lots of practice, on obviously dusty and marshy fields, their cleanliness is hard to perceive. So, you’ll have to be a good boy and start caring for your equipments. Regular cleaning of soccer cleats is very important if you want to ‘keep them happy’ and not degrade sooner.

    Now, before you get overly enthusiastic and overwhelmed and go for slamming them straight into a washing machine or a dishwasher or tortures of any sort, read what I have to say for a few minutes. Here, we’ll be discussing tips to clean soccer cleats when they get very dirty. You may clean them in two ways- manually or by using a washing machine.

    1. Cleaning Manually

    For this method, you’ll require

    * A piece of cloth (towel-like texture preferred)

    * A boot brush for rubbing flat ends

    * A toothbrush for thin crevices

    * A vessel full of lukewarm water.

    * Washing Powder or Liquid

    1. To begin cleaning, first stuff the hollow of the shoes with a newspaper ball to prevent any water seepage into the inner shoe and to make cleaning easier.

    2. Unlace the shoes and keep the laces separate for later cleaning.

    3. Begin by scrubbing the ‘upper’ and the heel. They are the easiest to clean and form the most of the exposed surface of these soccer cleats. Dip the cloth into the water and simply remove the excess dirt on them.

    4. For cleaning the flynet, take some washing powder on the cloth, drench the cloth again and start scrubbing. Little specks of dirt must be removed.

    5. There’s naturally a lot of mud accumulated around studs at the outsole. You may use a boot brush to clean this area. If some dirt still remains at little corners, don’t hesitate in using a toothbrush for cleaning that.

    6. The region where the outsole meets the upper and heel must be cleaned with a toothbrush.

    7. To clean the sock liner, take it out from the inside and the using washing powder, scrub the area. For the laces, dip them into the vessel and rub them therein. The little specks of dirt they may contain must be effaced off.

    You are not required to be very gentle, but that doesn’t give you the freedom to treat your soccer cleats savagely.

    2. Cleaning in a washing machine

    Alright! You may use the washing machine and save yourself from the labor. But for that, you’ll have to keep certain things in mind. First of all, separate the laces and the sock liner from the soccer cleats. Make sure that you’ve placed enough towels or some heavy cloth around them so they do not mess with the walls of the washing machine. Set the temperature to around 30 degree centigrade and go for extra rinse. With all this ensured, you are good to go.
