While walking down the street, if you get to pass by a park or playground, you can see a number of individuals involved in different activity. Some can be seen engaged in cycling; some are using baseball equipment, while someone is busy giving baseball instruction to the seemingly amateur ones. Almost every one is engaged in some kind of activity. It is pretty obvious that the young ones are more interested in physical activities rather than just sitting or playing board games. Yet, every individual likes a different kind of sports. When we think of classifying the sports into categories, the number of categories is unbelievable. From bat and ball sports to automobile sports, from boarding sports to cue sports, from water sports to sky diving, there are just too many.

Classifying such a number of sports in definite categories is definitely an arduous task. But roughly, we can manage to suggest few criteria that can put a sport in the closest possible category. Using these criteria, the categories that have been formed are as follows,

• Racing Sports: In racing sports, there are a number of competitors racing against each other and sometimes also in teams. The basic objective of a race is to be the fastest and first one to achieve a target. Racing sports can be subcategorized in to three types of sports; human powered sports like running and swimming, Human assisted like cycling and rowing and External powered such as motor sports and sailing.

• Opponent sports: These sports are generally a competition between two opponents where the scores achieved by the players decides the winner. The opponent sports can also be divided into three main categories Court sports are the ones that are played in a court such as tennis, badminton and squash. Combat sports are one on one physical encounter between the opponent like karate and boxing. And the Team sports are one in which teams compete with other teams example football and cricket. It is possible that a court sport is also a team sport.

• Achievement sports: Achievement sports can be taken as the ones in which the players show off their abilities. The categories might help you understand it more clearly. There are three types of achievement sports; Target sports are the ones in which the objective is to hit a target such as shooting and archery. Display sports are the ones in which the participants display certain ability or moves like in bodybuilding, gymnastics and diving. In strength sports, the participants show off their strength as in weight lifting and triple jump.

• Athletics: And finally, there are athletics in which the competitors have to show their abilities in a combination of different sports from above mentioned categories. We can roughly divide these into running, jumping and throwing. The players have to participate in a series of different games and the one with highest over all score is the winner.

This was only a rough categorization of sports, if you go into deeper studies of all these categories. Although, if you study each category individually, you will see that it can still be sub categorized into many other categories as well.

There is nothing that is more extreme then the sport of skateboarding. Skateboarding started out by simply nailing rolling skate wheels to a plank of wood and has since evolved into a worldwide phenomenon and recognized extreme sport. Skateboarding has gone through a lot to get to the point it is at now but that discussion is for a different article. Here I want to talk about why skateboarding is so extreme and so popular. Skateboarding takes a kind of athlete that very few sports require. Balance, strength, intuition, guts, skill and a natural ability are just a small sample of what a person needs to become a great skateboarder. The skateboarders of today are quite possibly the most talented athletes in the world. When you compare the difficulty, danger, skill level, variety and competition of the sport it is really not hard to see why. There are also a number of avenues that the sport of skateboarding has been down that solidified it as an extreme sport, avenues like the X Games and the Gravity Games.

When you think of an athlete you generally think of a football, baseball or basketball player. Perhaps you think of a track and field athlete, swimmer or tap dancer (kidding). Before the recent skateboard revolution in the 90’s and today not many people would have lumped skateboarders into the category of athlete; thug, trouble maker, talented or maybe skilled, but not athlete. But now when you compare the types of tricks skateboarders are doing, and the unbelievable things they get their bodies to do when they are 15 feet in the air and then land smooth just to hit another huge air seconds later to the things “typical” athletes do, people are actually starting to say that skateboarders are arguably MORE athletic then a what we know as a “typical” athlete. After watching competitions like the X Games I am not one to argue that point. What professional skateboarders are able to do with a chunk of wood on wheels is uncanny.

Simply the danger and difficulty of skateboarding are enough to steer thousands of hopeful professional skaters away from the scene, but those that press through know what it took to get there. There are not too many other sports that draw comparisons of difficulty to skateboarding. Take this for example you take off going extremely fast launch into the air, while your in the air you flip your body, rotate the board under your feet, catch the board with your hand, put the board back under your feet, land on the board and keep riding… oh and do it all with style. It is pretty amazing what skateboarders are able to do these days and very fun to watch. Luckily the main stream has caught on to this incredible sport and competitions like x games and gravity games now highlight skateboarding as one of their main events. This gets the word out and shows the world that these guys are in the most extreme sport and deserve to be called world class athletes.

With its sparkling aqua sea and sugar-white beaches and generally beautiful climate, Barbados is known to be a paradise destination. But when is the very best time to visit this easternmost Caribbean island?

Well, the answer to that depends, because the "very best" depends a lot on you. Consider the pros and cons of both high season and low as you make the determination for yourself of when the very best time is to visit Barbados.

Barbados High Season:

1. Pro: The Climate is Sublime.

The high-season (meaning the most popular time to visit Barbados) spans from mid-December until mid-April. This is when visitors (primarily from North America and Europe) want to escape the cold. The tropical climate of Barbados offers not only the ideal temperature – 75 to 80 Fahrenheit (24-29 degrees Celsius) – but the gentle eastern tradewinds blow during these months, further cooling the island.

2. Con: More Expense, More People.

During the high season the island's tourism industry is at its peak. During very popular periods such as school holidays and Christmas you are well advised to book your trip early.

You should also be aware that during these peak times prices of accommodation and flights will be higher than at other times and restaurants and beaches will be more crowded. However, going at this time will ensure that all attractions are open so you will be able to get a full and action-packed experience of Barbados.

Barbados Low Season:

1. Pro: Budget-Friendly.

Low season runs from mid-April until mid-December and is a budget-friendly time to visit paradise. During this time you will experience lower prices with some hotels lowering their prices by 40% or more. The island will in general be a lot less crowded but this can mean that some resorts will close due to lack of visitors.

2. Con: It's Hot! Beware a Hurricane!

The weather will more than likely be quite muggy as the trade winds are not as prevalent in summer so you may struggle with the humidity levels. You need to be aware that summer is the hurricane season for the Caribbean, particularly August and September.

However, the Caribbean area is vaster than most people think and the chances of any single island being directly hit by a hurricane are very slim. Also, Barbados has not had a hurricane since the 1950s, as it lies outside the usual hurricane path.

Recommendation from a Local on the Best Time to Visit Barbados:

I am not the only Barbadophile who recommends November, early December, and late April as the times you'll find the best of all worlds: The rates for accommodations are still the "low-season" rates to visit the island and the weather is almost-perfect.

The weather on the island of Barbados is actually sunnier and drier than that of many of the other islands in the Caribbean. As it is it is located on the southern edge of the Atlantic hurricane belt, it is not as arid as Aruba but is far away enough from the dense forest of Puerto Rico not to experience as much rainfall. Barbados has an average of 8 to 10 hours of sunshine per day from November to March. If you think that the combination of low humidity and lots of sunshine sounds like bliss … well, you'd be right!

Going to college is very exciting for every high school student. Preparing yourself for college needs you to make well calculated decisions. You have to make a decision on which college you want to go to, what course you will choose and how to pay for your studies.

The first thing to do is consult with your parents and discus you going to college, then meet with your college counselor, after that you have to start preparing for your college admissions. You have to start preparing as early as possible for your admission because competition is stiff. Preparing early will also give you a quick start on meeting the various requirements needed by most colleges.

Preparing for college admission

There are lots of methods to preparing for college admission but below are the major ones you should follow:

1. Admission Requirements: You should gather information on the admission requirements of the various colleges and universities to want to attend. Some higher institutions want new students to write special courses before they are accepted to the institution so make sure you know the admission requirements as early as possible to prepare yourself.

2. Submission Dates and Admission Deadlines: Make note of the various colleges submission dates so that you meet the deadlines. There are certain colleges that require you to submit your applications as early as junior year or your early senior years.

3. The Required ACT or SAT Scores: American College Test (ACT) or Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) scores are required by a number of higher institutions. Learn about the required scores needed by the various colleges as this can vary from each institution.

4. The National Test Dates: Most exams are determined by national test dates. Finding out early about these dates will help in raising your scores. Knowing about these dates will help you in preparing early for the exams which in return will increase the chances of your meeting the score requirements.

5. College Scholarship Application Deadlines: Going to college can be very costly for a lot of families so some students will have to look for scholarships. You plan on applying for a scholarship then make sure you meet the deadline for the application. Give yourself some time in putting together the required documents needed by the institution. And try to apply to as many institutions as you can to increase the chances of you getting a scholarship.

My grandparents always say to me how our lives are better now than when they were young, and that I should enjoy and cherish my life instead of complaining. Admittedly, in most senses, our lives are indeed much better than our grandparents’ when they were young.

Back in the day, gifts for grandparents definitely wouldn’t have been Plasma TVs or mobile phones. No siree. In the words of my Grandad, “in my day, we were lucky if we got a plate of baked beans on the table for dinner.”

When my grandparents got married, they moved into a cramped one-room – and I repeat – one room flat, with a divan mattress in the corner it, and no running water or electricity. They cooked using a single gas hob and could hardly afford to feed themselves. And when their son was born, times got so tough that they often had to eat blackberries for dinner!

In my grandparents’ era, you were lucky if you had a sink in your abode. Many folks collected water from either private wells or from public pumps. Washing machines and dishwashers would’ve, undoubtedly, come in extremely useful and made incredibly handy Birthday gifts for Grandmothers, or Birthday gifts for Grandad, so they would’ve spent more time resting and less time washing the dishes and clothes themselves!

As for debit and credit cards, my grandparents didn’t use ATM cards until they were in their 60’s – imagine that! Instead, they always went inside the bank and did business eye-to-eye with the bank clerk, who even knew them by name.

My grandparents often joke that they don’t know why people refer to those times as “the good ol’ days,” because there wasn’t much good about them. Grandad told me a story about a young lad who actually killed himself for lack of food and money.

Of course, I treasure these stories and the time I spend with my grandparents. When I find myself drooling over a new gadget, I think back to the stories of my Gran ransacking the cupboards for a missing “twopence” piece, which would’ve paid for a can of soup for her son’s dinner. It puts life into perspective.

People managed to get by without today’s mod-cons. Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t a criticism of today’s modern conveniences, because frankly, many of them make life much more enjoyable. On the other hand, perhaps we should be reminded that the majority of these are luxuries, not necessities, even though media and peer pressure would have us believe otherwise.

These days, we can spend more time and money on our hobbies, which was unheard of in our grandparents’ time. My Grandad would’ve given anything to immerse himself in his favourite book, but he just couldn’t afford it, they were that strapped for cash.

When I was walking with my Gran down the local high street, we passed a tanning bed salon and spied a girl, her skin glowing a shade of orangey-red, strut out of the salon. Gran whispered to me: “Why pay the earth to cook your skin when the good Lord shines a sun over your head that does the same for free?” That did make me laugh.

I can safely say kindles, GPS devices, Xboxes, Wiis, and so on, certainly won’t be on my gifts for grandfather or Birthday Gifts for Grandma shopping list. I believe there’s definitely something to be said for personalised gifts for grandparents.

Very recently, I gave a personalised football book to my Grandad for his 80thbirthday. The front cover displayed his name in gold, and there was a personal message on the inside cover. This particular book contained newspaper reports on the history of Sunderland football team over the last century.

On visiting him a week later, Grandad was already half way through it. Not being much of a football lover myself, I couldn’t really share in my Grandad’s excitement as he went off at a tangent about all the things he’d read, like the famous League and Cup wins, the stars – past and present, etc. etc. etc. But what did excite me was when he said this was one of the best presents he’d received, ever. That made me so happy.

Beach soccer first started in Brazil and has quickly grown to be an international game. Beach soccer has been played for many years without rules until 1992 when they were distributed. The very first professional beach soccer competition took place at Miami Beach. The first televised competition was in 1994. Since it has been televised beach football has become one of the most watched sports around the world.

The rules of beach football are similar to association football accept there are no corners given instead there are only throw-ins or kick-ins.

The basic rules of beach football are shown below.

Players

Each team consists of five players, including the goalkeeper and an unlimited amount of substitutions. Throw-ins and kick-ins mean the pace and flow of the game is much higher than regular football. Shoes are not allowed, although ankle guards are permitted. Goal kicks are taken by the goalie using his hands to throw the ball in.

Match length

A game lasts thirty six minutes and is split up into three twelve-minute periods. Every match is won by one team, with the game going into three minutes of extra time, followed by a penalty shootout if the score is still level after normal time. Unlike association football, penalty kicks are decided by sudden death rules.

Referees and Discipline

There are three referees in charge of the match, two on the pitch and one off who controls the team’s benches. Any fouls committed lead to a free kick on goal which has to be taken by the player who was fouled unless awarded for deliberate handling. As in association football yellow and red cards can be issued. However unlike association football, when a player receives a yellow card they must leave the pitch for two minutes and the team must play with four players for that time. When a player receives a red card, he is dismissed from the game entirely.

So you fancy yourself as a bar and nightclub enthusiast do you? Think you’re in the know with the industry? Well think again. Here are just a few things you probably didn’t know about your favourite bars and nightclubs.

  • Ever wondered what the name of the boss of the bouncers at a bar or nightclub is? Probably not however if you ever have the misfortune of meeting him, you may want to address him as Mr “Cooler.”
  • Bars and Nightclubs on corners are on average bigger then bars and nightclubs on normal lots of land.
  • At any given time, Ibiza has the largest percentage of population partying at a bar or nightclub.
  • South East Asian bars and clubs are the countries found to most likely to water down drinks, in particular spirits which for a number of reasons are disproportionately more expensive then locally brewed product (in particular beers)
  • The most popular shot in the world is vodka… largely propped up by the Russians where vodka is by and far the number one drink in the world.
  • Beer company’s invest millions of dollars in designing beer taps, due to the fact that a good beer tap can improve sales of a beer by over $20. Pretty good for a tiny bit of plastic.
  • Bars and Nightclubs have been voted the number 1 destination to meet people of the opposite sex.
  • The reason why Melbourne has a huge number of small bars and Sydney doesn’t is because of the different licensing laws that exist between each state. In Melbourne, the cost of setting up a bar is much lower and as such, is more conducive to smaller venues. In response to the popularity of small bars in Melbourne, Sydney has now begun to relax their licensing laws, allowing smaller operators to open up small bars.
  • The word Strobe (as in Strobe light) is in fact short for Stroboscopic.

Football fans can be odd creatures. I’m a football fan and although I think I’m perfectly normal, my missus would tell you otherwise! I have been obsessed with the game since I was a little boy, and although the game has changed in many ways over the last couple of decades, I will always be hooked.

There’s something quite special about match days especially. As a nipper, I remember waking up at the crack of dawn in a state of excitement – I used to drive my Dad mad! I would have laid out my football clothing the night before, so I wouldn’t have to rush about in the morning. Every time I pulled on my shirt, put on my hat and wrapped my scarf around my neck, I would get this immense sense of pride for my team – sad I know! I would then head downstairs for breakfast- usually boiled eggs, soldiers and a bacon butty – and then we would hit the road.

The car journey to the train station would normally involve a game of eye spy or me quizzing my Dad on the ‘good old days’ as he would call it, which to you and I means when football was played in black and white. I would also drive him round the bend by asking him about football clothing in those days and he would always reply ‘only the posh kids had the replica jerseys, I had a red and white scarf knitted for me by Nanny Edith’.

I always knew he wasn’t telling me the whole truth as I have seen photos of him wearing a silky flat hat lined with pin badges, but for some strange reason he would never actually tell me about that. He’s a funny man my dad!

I used to love arriving at the train station and spotting fans of rival teams. And then when arriving at the ground, walking down from the station, that buzz of anticipation as you stepped out was, and still is amazing.

Then you would set eyes on the hordes of fans, some in football clothing, others in casual get up – a sea of red and white roaming through the streets. I would always have to buy my match day programme from the same programme seller. He was an old boy with bright silver hair and he used to reek of tobacco.

Dad would insist on going for a quick pint before we went in the stadium, and he would always order a pint of London Pride and a packet of dry roasted peanuts. I would have a lemonade until I got a bit older, when the old man would treat me to a pint of lager, whispering the immortal words: ‘don’t tell your mother!’

On entering the ground I would always have butterflies in my stomach, although I’ve since grown out of this. I would click through the turnstiles and then rush to get to my spot on the terrace in time to watch the players warm up.

Once on the terrace, that was it. I remember the first couple of games I went to I would just stand there in awe just taking in the atmosphere, the colours, the smells. Then the game would kick off and we would get battered, and on the journey home you would wish you supported a decent team. And then the following week you’d do it all again. We’re not that odd are we?
