Sports are a very popular interest worldwide as there are many varieties people can choose from to indulge themselves in. Some people are interested in football while others like basketball. Some love the water and prefer swimming, while others like to speed inside a racing car. It doesn’t matter what type of sport you like to play as long as you realize the importance of the equipment and apparel required to play these sports. For playing football you need a football and two goal posts. Individually you may need a good pair of shoes and something to keep sweat off your eyes as it drips from your forehead. It is not so easy to indulge in any sports activity if you don’t have the appropriate sports equipment. The better your sports equipment is, the better will be your game.

The first step to have a good sporting experience is to buy a equipment that is of good quality in terms of its strength and is light in weight. For instance, if the racket with which you play badminton is not of appropriate weight your hand may not respond in the ideal fashion while playing the game. You might have to risk losing your game. But if you hold the racket before making a purchase and gauge as to what weight and length suits your hand the most, you will be able to take a good decision. Your decision at this point in time will go a long way to support your actual game.

In a game such as football, the goal keeper, for instance, would need equipment such as a helmet, shoulder pads and knee pads. You also need to think of the quality here too! For his own sake the goal keeper needs to get a hair cut before the game. The helmet should be fitting the goal keeper properly. The helmet should be refitted if the hair style of the goal keeper has changed. The front portion of the helmet should just protect the head and not become a hindrance by covering the forehead including the eyebrows. The ear holes also should match up with player’s ears. Move the helmet while the goal keeper is wearing it so that any displacement of the helmet can be rectified before the game starts.

Mouth guards are also considered another sporting equipment that should be checked for cleaning and fitting. They should be boiled to refit on the mouth of the player. Shoulder pads allow the goal keeper adequate amount of mobility. The back and front of the shoulder pads should be able to cover the shoulder blades and pectorals respectively.

Athletes should try and wear T-shirts that prevent occurrence of rashes and skin irritations arising from rough straps. Most sports equipments are of protective kind. The primary and the protective equipment are equally important because as the game progresses players become quite aggressive in an attempt to win the game. If these sports equipment are not maintained the players are bound to injure themselves.

A Dinosaur from Provence (France)

One of the first long-necked dinosaurs to be studied in Europe is a genus known as Hypselosaurus (pronounced hip-selo-sore-us). Large fossil bones had been unearthed in the French region of Provence in the 18th Century, but it was not until the mid 1840s that these bones were scientifically studied. At first, the scientists and academics who studied the bones thought they belonged to an enormous, extinct crocodile, but the bones were ascribed to a dinosaur and Hypselosaurus was formally named in 1869.

How big were Dinosaur Eggs?

We are often asked just how big were dinosaur eggs? They were not the dustbin sized monsters seen in many B-movies, but some dinosaur eggs were as large as soccer balls.

A number of large, fossilised eggs were found at the same location as the fossil bones of Hypselosaurus. The eggs, some of which almost thirty centimetres long are the biggest dinosaur eggs ever found in Europe. It was believed that the eggs must have been laid by the huge animal Hypselosaurus, although the eggs and body fossils may not belong to the same genus.

Fossilised Eggs Ascribed to Hypselosaurus

The eggs are almost round in shape, sort of football sized (soccer ball). Studies have revealed that some of the eggs had thicker shells than others. Since the eggs are associated with Upper Cretaceous strata (Maastrichtian faunal stage), some scientists have suggested that the thin-shelled eggs found may provide a clue to the mass extinction event that occurred at the end of the Cretaceous. They have speculated that the thin egg shells may indicate that the animals that laid them were under stress and that dinosaur breeding and reproduction was being affected at this time. Other palaeontologists have commented that the thinly-walled eggs seem to have hatched and perhaps the difference in thickness of shell material is related to ontogenic characteristics. Perhaps the thinner-walled eggs were laid by younger females.

Recently, the genus known as Hypselosaurus has been re-evaluated. It has been declared Nomen dubium, that is a name given to an organism whose validity is in doubt. In the case of Hypselosaurus this is due to the fragmentary nature of the body fossils ascribed to this genus. One interesting fact about the animal that laid these huge eggs (whatever that might be), based on volume and mass calculations, the animal that hatched from the eggs, and we assume a Titanosaur, would have weighed at birth about as much as newborn baby human (7lbs-8lbs approximately). However, Hypselosaurus is estimated to have reached lengths in excess of ten metres and perhaps weighed as much as six tonnes – considerably bigger than any member of H. sapiens.

During our school days we all had to compete in sports that we did not want to do. Pulling on a pair of running socks and some trainers as we ran to compete in the annual cross country around the lanes and fields. Usually carried out during the winter, it was not high on many students wish list when they started school. The more popular sports were hockey, football and rugby.

The sport rugby originated from the town of the same name in the county of Warwickshire. It was first played during the 19th century at public schools as one of many types of football played during this period. At the end of the 19th century the sport split into two formats league and union, and with it the rules of each differed veryly.

Watching a game of rugby league or union you will see a lot of similarities between to two codes of the game. However the main differences is that union has kicked many opportunities in which the ball can be contested after the tackle, usually in the form of rucks and mauls.

Both forms of the game are popular all over the world, the first world cup for league football was held in France during 1954. The current world champions are Australia having won the current world cup in 2013 and the first union world cup was held in New Zealand in 1987. The current world champions are New Zealand having won the world cup in 2015.

Both codes of the game have professional leagues all over the world, but the most popular leagues of both forms can be found in the southern hemisphere countries of South Africa, New Zealand and Australia, as well as the northern hemisphere countries of France and England.

Another format of the union game is 'rugby sevens'. This was first played as far back as 1883, but only became popular during the 1970s. With this format of the game the amount of players you will see on the pitch are less, reduced from 15 to 7. This offered a more open, exciting and high scoring game. This format was introduced into the Olympics in 2016, with Fiji winning the Olympic gold medal.

The shape of the ball was designed to make passing the ball between play easier, originally called a quanco and made from a leather casing around an inflated pigs bladder. The balls varied in size due to the variation in size of the bladder. In the modern game the ball is made from 4 panels of leather or synthetic material and is regulated in size and weight.

The rugby kit combines a shirt, shorts and socks. In the beginning the shirts were made of cotton and were heavy and uncomfortable. Thankfully due to advances in the sports clothing industry shirts are now made of a high wicking type material that draws the moisture away from the skin and makes it evaporate much more quickly. This makes the shirts easier and more comfortable for players to wear in the wet.

The humble sock has gone through advances in improving the material they used to be made from. Socks are generally made of a thick material that is often breathable. Socks also have padding, cushioning as well as strong toe and heel reinforcement, all of which help with fitting of the sock and its comfort inside the players boot.

Rugby is a sport enjoyed by millions of players and spectators all over the world, but no match has reached the prime heights of a match in 1954. Over 100,000 spectators crammed into the ground and watched a league challenge cup final at Bradford. A spectator figure that will probably never match due to current stadium criteria and health and safety regulations.

The Tom Brady cards are very popular among the collectors and there are many versions of the card available. The values of these rookie cards depend on the condition and availability and are all graded by the PSA.

Tom Brady is said to be the most glamorous of the NFL boys and his cards are definitely the most collected cards of all times. He has very successfully maintained his status as one of the best and these rookie cards are the most collected. The cards have a good value for the collectors and the value is determined not only by the condition but also by the availability of the cards. There are various versions of the Tom Brady cards available and some of them are the high-end cards and are very popular since 2001. The values of the cards also vary according to the conditions mentioned above and the price can be anything from $70 to $150 and in some occasional cases it can be anything from $400 to a whopping $4000,000!

There are various versions of the Tom Brady Cards available and can be numbered to 114 including the Tom Brady autograph rookies, rookies, limited serial numbered cards and also the Super Bowl Memorabilia cards with autograph. The cards are of different values depending on the type and how they are graded by the experts. The higher valued cards are more of a collectible item and are the most preferred ones. The cards are first graded by the sports collectible service and experts and once the cards are graded they are protected in a sealed covering that have foils and embossing and will protect the cards from further damage in an archival quality case.

The Tom Brady cards are also popular because of the story of this rookie who made it from rags to riches at the beginning of his football career. He became very popular in the 2000 NFL and later on the New English Patriots called his name in the sixth round which was 199th overall. The Tom Brady cards became all the more popular when he added the Super Bowl Rings and the MVP to his already established career. He is a darling of the collectors mainly because for all his wins and not for his stats. Also his fairy tale lifestyle and numerous dates and affairs with celebrities have kept him in the limelight.

Football jersey can well surpass all the other memorabilia and collectibles of teams. It is the most popular team item, a significant and priceless possession for every true fan. Most football supporters own the jersey of their favourite team, especially now, when the jersey bears the name and number of particular players. The authentic jerseys can actually be a great collectible as well.

The football jersey is a piece of clothing that is originally made to provide comfort and protection to the player; it has become though the cornerstone of every sophisticated and serious collection. It is something like a piece of art, decorating walls and offices in a true fan’s home. Some of them create large displays with several authentic jerseys, signed by their favourite players.

If you go online, you will find thousands of jerseys for sale; at eBay or Amazon, you can find some authentic shirts in high prices. Some of the fans sell jerseys signed by the football players, increasing the price dramatically. You can find a football jersey at 350$ or even more, as many fans invest in football apparel and create some sort of small business online, trading and selling jerseys or full kits. If you are among those football fans that want to have authentic and rare jerseys, you definitely need to check online. There are numerous rare items out there for sale, at different prices, for every budget and pocket.

Some of the very first jerseys used in football matches are quite pricey; a known collector bought recently a football jersey from the 70s, belonging to a player of the national team of Brazil; he spent more than 20000$ for that, but it is a unique item and belongs to the player that scored the winning goal at the final match of World Championship. If you can find a rare jersey signed by a player you can consider it to be an investment; you cannot know the exact value of this jersey twenty – or more – years from now.

If you are not up to this task, but you are mostly looking for something comfortable and easy to wear, then you should definitely consider checking the simple jerseys that have hit the shelves; you can find a football jersey that belongs to European team, such as Manchester United or Barcelona, or an American or South American team. The dot com boom made the purchase of jerseys and apparel really easy. You can find the jerseys that bear the name of a player such as Beckham, for instance, in good prices. If you don’t want to spend huge money, you can always opt for a replica. IT might not be top quality, but it will last for a while and is easily replaceable. Some fans tend to collect jerseys of their favourite players, buying a football jersey from every team they play for; in the case of Beckham you can find one from M.United, Real Madrid and now Milan.

Whether you are a big fan or a simple collector, buying jerseys is a great way to keep the memorable moments of your team always alive and vivid. It’s also a nice way to connect with the club and show that you belong to the group of fans that support a team religiously.

Soccer uniforms are worn by millions of soccer players around the world every day.

They wear the colors and logos of professional soccer teams, or a color scheme of their own club. The options are endless.

If you are helping your child's youth soccer team to pick out uniforms, or are new to the game, you should understand that a soccer uniform is more than just a soccer jersey.

The uniform consist of:

  • Soccer Jersey
  • Soccer Shorts
  • Soccer Socks

The Soccer Jersey

Choosing a soccer jersey color will depend on your local clubs preferences, or of course your team's sponsor. You can now get your uniforms in any color or design that you want. Be bold if you like. This is your team's identity we are talking about.

Most jerseys now are made from synthetic material that will prevent moisture from being absorbed. However these will be more expensive.

If your team wants to be more traditional you could go with the original. Cotton. Just remember that on rainy days the cotton will really suck up the water and weigh you down.

Soccer Shorts

The soccer shorts should complement the color scheme of the jersey. They also should not be extremely baggy as this will not help your performance. You do not want them to bunch up and cause you to trip, ever!

Baggy shorts may be all the rage, but they do not belong on the soccer field. Choose a length that is comfortable enough so that players get freedom to make the moves that they will need to make during a game. The last thing a soccer player wants is to feel that their movement is restricted.

Soccer Socks

These socks are knee high and flexible so they will serve the tow purposes for which they were designed. They should complement the jersey and shorts, and they have to be long and strong enough to hold your soccer shinguards in place.

Soccer Goalies

Keep in mind that soccer goalies wear a uniform that is different from the field player. Soccer goalsies must wear a color that is different from their own team, and the opposing team, so a referendum can easily identify the goalkeeper.

A soccer goalie also gets to wear a long sleeve shirt, with some elbow padding, and shorts that usually have some padding on the sides. This helps to absorb some of the pressure of those frequent dives for the ball. They will sometimes wear long goalkeeper pants depending on field and weather conditions.

Goalkeepers also get to wear goalkeeper gloves to ensure that they get a good grip on those shots that rain down on them.

We always have this problem of deciding what to opt for our children and how to decorate their room with the right area rug. Well, there are plenty of options as they come in many shapes, sizes and colors. This makes the decision making process even more difficult. Lot of experts advise to try them all and figure out yourself that which one of them is best for your kids room.

Buying them online is yet another tedious task as neither you are able to physically feel the quality of the rug nor you can see the exact colour representation. Moreover, to add to your headache, you have to deal with the restocking fee and the shipping charges.

First the basics: What size is suitable for your kid’s room and which shape will make the best visual appeal?

A lot of people tend to skip it and just order one for their kids and end up regretting. Though it looks like not to be worthy, but it’s important and you need to invest your time in measuring the area before you make a purchase. Even going further and deciding upon the shape will deduce to more researched and informed purchase. There are plenty of options available which are specifically designed by the manufactures to give them unique shapes and these rugs come out appealing (like heart, whale, flower, football, etc).

Choose the right material for your kid’s soft tender skin

This is the most important factor when you are considering buying a kids rug. You should keep in mind the soft and cushioned texture which is going to be in direct contact with your baby. For crawlers, this is the prime factor as you will not want rashes on their skin if you choose a cheap fibre. The other thing is the ease of maintenance as kids don’t follow any rules. They can come from any place with a lot of dirt and dust and end up making their rug dirty. You may want to choose a fibre which is easy to clean and can withstand the wear and tear factor.

How will your rug withstand to pets?

You may want to consider this factor as well because the kids tend to spend a lot of time with these friendly companions. So, their muddy paws or their harshness could be a factor in deciding the fibre of your carpet.

Choosing the right colour and the design

Another important factor while choosing your kids rug is the colours. You will always want to keep it vibrant and exciting. The room should reflect positive energies. Not just the colours, you may want to consider an impressive and funny design as well. Anything which can attract eyes and has vibrant attributes to it is a good option for your kid’s room.

Though we have tried to cover all the important factors which you should consider to make a well-informed and researched decision while buying a kid’s rug, you can leave your comments and let us know if we missed any point.

Forgive me football fans…This past Sunday I went to the opening game of the Eagles here in Philadelphia (I’m still singing “Fly Eagles Fly” in my head), and it literally blew me away. I thought I knew what I was getting into because I see the games on TV once in awhile.

It always looks like everyone’s having fun, cheering and all. I’m not really a football fan but I went because I thought it would be a great experience and something very different for me. Little did I know I would be watching the game with my fingers in my ears and my head between my knees (thank goodness for my yoga practice!).

The opening ceremonies touched my heart with the American flag being spread out across the field during the National Anthem – that was really nice. But when the four fighter jets ceremonially flew overhead at lightening speed, I had a “Hit the Deck!” reaction and in nanoseconds created an energetic foxhole and dived right in (my Healing Science training). Unfortunately it wasn’t effective. The sound explosion got me! I felt completely blown apart (and then all I could think of was our guys and gals in the military who experience this for real, and feeling tremendously compassionate and gratefulness to them).

At first I thought it was just me, but when the big burly footbally guys with green bald heads sitting in front of me started to freak out, I knew that this was no small thing. If these guys were startled, stunned, and shattered (and they had tough, dense, energy fields) well then my experience of my (higher frequency) energy system feeling blown apart was not far fetched.

And that wasn’t the only shattering experience! There were fireworks galore at the end of the opening ceremony, and we were sitting right near where they were being set off. Then, every time there was a touchdown – and the Eagles scored big that day (woo-hoo Philly!) – they would shoot off a fireworks display! Well, I don’t do fireworks. Never did. Fireworks are actually painful to me.

After the opening and about 2 touchdowns (which was probably already about $100,000 – $200,000 worth of “entertainment” in fireworks and fighter jets) I had my little routine down. Every time the fireworks would go off I would hold my ears until my forefingers met in the middle of my brain, scream at the top of my lungs (which just blended in with all the other screams), and as everyone jumped up to cheer, I did the opposite.

I slid back in my stadium chair until my head was on my seat and my legs and feet flailing up next to everyone’s arms and hands – it was funny how no one noticed except for my family members. My brother and sister-in-law who took me, didn’t know whether to laugh hysterically or profusely apologize. We all ended up laughing until we just about pee-d ourselves.

But when I went home I could tell, my energy field was shattered. I was exhausted, leaking energy, and felt very “out of sorts”. Why am I telling you this? Because there are many things that “shatter” our energy fields and so often people don’t have a clue. They know they don’t feel right, or they are tired or dizzy or suddenly hypersensitive to things, but they don’t know why. Actually most people don’t even know about their energy field let alone think about how to care for it. Caring for our energy field is one of the most important self-care approaches we can take. Let me explain what this “shattered energy” is about, and this is a quick advanced lesson in Energy Medicine:

We have structured levels as part of our energy field – like a template – and these can shatter or get jolted upon certain events or encounters. The structured levels are structures on which the physical body subsists, so there is a direct connection to the body and reasons why someone would feel so funky when the energy is shattered.

Here are some things that can shatter your energy:

–emotional upset

–being involved or near an accident

–experiencing or witnessing severe pain

–loud arguments with people

–common loud noises – like motorcycles and cars on the road that are obnoxiously loud

One of the best things that you can do to repair a shattered energy field is to have a session in energy work – such as Healing Touch, Reiki, Brennan work or even acupuncture. Massage would even be helpful. Not every one is going to have that access right away – and the sooner you can get to a treatment after the shattering event, the better! But one thing that can you can do at home to help repair shattered energy is using the essential oils (therapeutic grade of course – definitely not perfume grade). If you run an essential oil (like White Angelica or Valor) in your field, you can assist the structured levels of the field to naturally repair.

Many “energetic sensitives” like me have to be very careful about where we go and what we expose ourselves to – and we need to know how to shield, protect and repair the field (all can be done with running some eo’s through your field).

What did I do the night I got home after the Eagles game to repair my field?

–did a body scrub (that’s for an upcoming issue)

–took a lavender bath (that’s another good way to

get essential oils to repair our field)

–ran Valor through my energy field (see video below)

–laid down on the bed, relaxed, and meditated

. . .and I skipped the sports report on the news that night!

I searched deep through the ‘investment closet’ for the most unusual stock symbols. Finding some really hilarious ones, I decided to share them with you… hopefully igniting some giggles along the way! There’s no doubt these companies were shocked when they received their symbol from the exchange. I encourage you to click through to find out what the company really does (some of them you will recognize). If there is no link provided, the company either failed in the past couple years or had their ticker symbol changed (can you blame them?).

While reading these… Try to think of any symbols or companies with funny names that you may know of and share them in the comments section!

Each week of the college football season, I make at least one college football parlay bet. There’s something magical about watching many games at once and having action riding on them all. If you’re new to betting on NCAA college football, here is some information that will help you out.

Let’s start out by talking about the difference between sportsbooks when a game falls on the number. Some sportsbooks push ties, which means you get your parlay card reduced to the next number. So imagine you have a 5-team college football parlay going and the Ohio State Buckeyes (-3) win by 3. Since it’s a tie, the card would be reduced to the next level. If you’re playing a “ties win” card, you’d win the bet.

College football parlay cards can have both sides and totals on them. A side is when you pick sides, like the Michigan Wolverines. And the total is when you bet the under or over on the total number of points scored for both teams.

As you might expect, you can increase your payout by adding more teams. The risk increases too. While most sportsbooks will often have about the same payouts, some do offer special payout amounts.

Getting paid on college parlays is fun. Here are some common payout amounts:

3-team parlay pays 6-1

4-team parlay pays 11-1

5-team parlay pays 20-1

Let’s move on.

There’s also teasers that are somewhat popular with sportsbettors. They are easier to win, but pay much less. Many like betting teasers because the lines are more favorable for sports bettors. As an example, you might see the Washington Huskies as a 14 point dog on the real line and a 21 point dog on a teaser. As you can see, it’s much easier to win these bets.

Do you know what the best college football parlay bet to make is? There is an “optimal” bet and many sports bettors don’t realize it. Whether you’re wagering on teasers, half-point cards or straight parlays, you’ve got to know your stuff to come out ahead.
