Extreme Sport And What You Should Know About It

Extreme sport pushes the limits and ability of the human mind and body to cope with conditions that are out of the ordinary. Conditions that require a high degree of physical exertion, with the adrenalin-pumping danger of the possibility of death. At times, extreme sport would appear to defy the laws of science. Extreme sports are only as varied as the imagination of clever advertising marketers and designers.

There is a cult-type following, that forms into a sub-culture, which has evolved around the mystique of extreme sport. It is the wealthy, disillusioned and experience-seeking younger generation that has been the focus of the advertising marketers. The gurus have quickly cottoned on to this as being Blue Moon Opportunity (once in a lifetime opportunity) and happy to satisfy the wants of the thrill seekers.

Extreme sports demand the discipline and fitness of the body, as well as the mind, for it frequently involves performing a death defying stunt. This can be clearly seen in operation in those who participate in the sport of diving without oxygen. This is based on a technique first witnessed in dolphins and whales, called the ‘Mammalian Diving reflex’. While at the extreme depths of free diving, the ‘baracardia shift’, the heart beat of a world champion oxygen free diver was recorded to beat as slowly as 9 beats per minute. The deepest free dive ever recorded, was performed by the German Herbet Nitsche, diving with the aid of a weighted sled, to 214 metres (702 feet), in 2007.

Of course there are the expensive ‘toys’ that have to go with freediving, such as freedive fins, low profile masks, skin tight hydrophobic freedive suits etc. Free diving has developed into the team sports of underwater hockey and rugby.

There is an annual event of extreme sport which has become a collection of summer and winter games, called the X Games. These were created solely for those who prefer their sport vial the TV.

Hang gliding, wind surfing, rock climbing, skiing were once all classed as extreme sports, though now widely accepted. New sports continue to evolve such as snocross, ice climbing, airwavesboarding and wingsuit flying. Once a body has been sipped inside a wingsuit it becomes shaped like an airfoil, through the clever use of a specially designed jumpsuit. Once the participant has free glided through several thousand feet, a normal parachute is used for landing.

Extreme sport continues to evolve with three major factors: breaking the norm, costly equipment and specialized clothing. For the marketers of extreme sport it is limited only by the imagination of the designers, the producers of video-music and the ability of advertising giants to push new frontiers to an experience-hungry thrill-seeking generation. Perhaps we will see a day when there will be a low-gravity, oxygen free giant step extreme sport held on the moon.

Using Youth Sports To Instill Responsibility In Young People

Coaching youth sports is not just about winning or losing or even teaching all of the skills that children and young people need in order to be successful out on the court or field. One of the main goals of any coach who coaches children is to help teach them about the importance of responsibility. Coaches are in a unique position to help influence a childs life in a special way and add on to the groundwork already being laid down by parents. You can help equip the young people on your team with skills and values that will not only help them succeed on the field but also help them succeed in the work place and in their social lives as well.

One of the most important elements of youth sports is practice sessions. Practice sessions are a perfect opportunity to teach the kids the responsibility of being prompt and on time. As these kids grow and mature, they will one day have to take full responsibility for themselves and must be able to get themselves to work each and every day on time without being prodded. Teaching children the value of being on time can really take root with sports practice times. Make sure that you stress how important it is to be on time and that those who are late cause the whole team to suffer and get behind. This helps children to understand that their being late does not only affect them, but it can drag the entire team with them. When these children are grown and in the workplace, many of them will be part of teams where they will make valuable contributions. Not being on time can put the workforce team behind schedule and can cost a company clients.

Along with youth sports teaching young people the importance and value of being prompt, it is also a good time to teach them how to take on certain roles and responsibilities. Each player on a youth sports team has a unique position that has unique responsibilities that come with it. Those who do their part and fulfill their responsibilities help bring the team together and help the team move toward their goal of winning the game. The same can be said for being involved in the work force. When each person fulfills the position and responsibilities they are given, the team will function smoothly, and the company moves toward greater success. Take each opportunity you have as a coach to instill these values so that your kids will be successful in all of life.

Life Science Science Fair Project

Life Science Science Fair Project

One of the challenges faced by students who want to participate in the school science fair is how to choose a topic. There are not many aspects of life that do not have to do with science in some form or fashion. Even the topic of fashion is related to the chemistry field in the production of makeup and clothing! Perhaps the first step is to make a list of the things students are interested in. These can be activities or hobbies or objects around them in their every day life. The next step would be to evaluate this list using the eyes of science. For example, if a sporting event in one the list this would fall into a biology category or a physics category. If the list included art of music, then the relationship would again be biology in the characteristics of human senses or the applied science of what makes musical notes sound different according to their individual wavelengths. Once the list is evaluated have the student decide if they should pursue a physical science or life science science fair project. Many of the items on the list will fall into one category of the other.

This process of determining if a student wants to pursue a physical science or life science science fair project will help them narrow the field of topics. By encouraging them to make the list and evaluate it, you have already invested them in the decision. This is a much better strategy that having the teacher choose, or worse yet assign, the topics. One student may have no interest in sports and another may have no interest in plant life. This way they are already interested in the physical science of life science science fair project before the work even begins.

Once the students have chosen between the large categories of a physical science or life science science fair project, the next step may involve a couple of student and teacher meetings. The teacher should be able to guide and suggest ways of perceiving their chosen topic that will inspire ideas for the student. Again, it is important to let the student make the bigger decisions with the teacher acting only as a guide. This way they will be interested in the project from beginning to end.

Lawyer Plugin for WordPress Promises Legal Resources and Nationwide Attorney Network

After two years of development, Lawyer Plugin (www.lawyerplugin.com) launched their first public version of what promises to be an essential plugin for any lawyer running a WordPress website.

Lawyer Plugin is the first plugin of its kind: it gives law firms access to hundreds of local resources which are automatically added, updated, and synced with Lawyer Plugin’s central servers every 24 hours.

The registration takes care of all settings automatically. For example, a bankruptcy lawyer in Tampa, Florida, creates his profile with his law firm’s name, address, city, state, and practice area(s). The plugin automatically pulls bankruptcy- and Florida-related resources onto the resource page which is created by the plugin. With that, the firm becomes part of the peer-to-peer legal directory which is then displayed on the websites of every plugin user.

Block Competition

When creating the plugin, the peer-to-peer directory presented a major challenge. A law firm does not want to display competing law firms on their website. To solve this problem, Lawyer Plugin has been designed to filter competitors and only displays non-competing listings on each user’s website.

Here is how the filter works:

Smith & Smith bankruptcy lawyers in Tampa, Florida, install Lawyer Plugin.

Lisa Johnson & Associates, elder law attorneys in Asheville, North Carolina, also installs Lawyer Plugin.

Bradley Baker & James bankruptcy lawyers in Tampa Florida installs Lawyer Plugin.

Foz & Oz Attorneys at Law, bankruptcy lawyers in Los Angeles, California, installs Lawyer Plugin, too.

On the Smith & Smith resources page, Lawyer Plugin will display the listing for Lisa Johnson & Associates, because that firm does not compete in Smith & Smith’s local market. It will also display the listing for bankruptcy attorneys Foz & Oz. Even though they are bankruptcy lawyers, Foz & Oz are in Los Angeles, and therefore not competing with the Tampa, Florida practice.

However, Bradley Baker & James will not be included on Smith & Smith’s website, and Smith & Smith will not be included on Bradley Baker & James website. Lisa Johnson & Associates will display listings for all three of the above firms, because none of them compete with her practice.

A Fun Brand for a Serious Industry

Lawyer Plugin breaks out of the stuffy legal mold. On Lawyerplugin.com, users will not find any bookshelves, gavels, or court house columns. Instead, they are offered an outlet for venting with a “Hate Mail” form and noting in their legal disclaimer that the plugin has not displayed any “violent behavior,” but cautions that the “adolescent years are right around the corner.”

Last year, Lawyer Plugin posted teasers on its Facebook and Twitter profiles as beta testing began. The question was asked: “How awesome will Lawyer Plugin be?” The answers —

Coffee will drink Lawyer Plugin to wake up.

You will never need a flu shot. The flu will need a Lawyer Plugin shot.

The earth will no longer rotate around the sun. The sun will be too busy rotating around Lawyer Plugin.

And it was even predicted that Christmas will begin celebrating Lawyer Plugin.

The Lawyer Plugin’s financial backers plan to keep the plugin free. Lawyer Plugin will continue to receive funding indefinitely as add-ons are developed, and a paid, professional version of Lawyer Plugin is also in the works.

Lawyer Plugin is free and out in the court of public opinion. The developers are thirsty for user feedback and additional ideas for features.
