SIMPLYASEP.COMHow ‘bout them Cowboys?! As pre-season gets into full swing and America gears up for the upcoming football season, sports fans are prepping their barbecues and coolers for tailgating and partying to celebrate the country’s most popular sport.

Indeed, the end of summer is signaled by cooler weather, the start of football and the close of baseball, as it heads into the home stretch for the playoffs. Wherever your sports heart lies—be it with football, baseball, basketball or hockey—there’s a code of conduct when you’re supporting your favorite team at the next home game.

In fact, there’s an unspoken rule for fans everywhere: Be passionate about your team, but not obnoxious. To ensure your next trip to the arena, stadium or ballpark is as relaxing and successful as ever, here are some key items to bring:• Alcohol and sports go hand in hand, and no one is disputing that. So, enjoy a nice, tall beer and some good-natured ribbing with your fellow fans, but remember to be a good sport and be respectful of your stadium neighbor(s).

• Pack binoculars and seat cushions. Not only will you be comfortable, but you’ll be able to see the action, plays, and players so close, it will be as if you were on the field.

4 Things to Bring With You to Enjoy Any Sporting Event



• Bring some snacks and drinks. Many venues allow this, and you’ll save a ton of green by packing your own.

• Don’t forget your spittoon. Being at an arena or stadium crammed shoulder to shoulder with someone can be uncomfortable and leave you exposed, to say the least. If you’re a smokeless tobacco user, there’s even less chance for you take a “dip” and spit.

That is, unless you own a portable spittoon created by Atlanta-based FLASR. These new 4-ounce pocket-sized spittoons are designed for users to easily open and close with just one hand, making them ideal items to bring to the next sports event or any other public setting so you can privately enjoy your tasty tobacco. Another advantage to the FASR flask is its advanced closing mechanism that ensures it stays securely closed when not in use, eliminating the risk of any messy spills or leaks.

Sebagai seorang wanita, Anda pasti tahu betapa pentingnya menjaga kesehatan mental, fisik, dan emosional yang baik. Namun, tidak selalu mudah untuk mengetahui cara melakukannya atau memulainya, tidak peduli seberapa kuat keinginan Anda untuk mencapainya.

Di situlah saya masuk.

Jika Anda bertanya-tanya bagaimana cara meningkatkan diri sebagai wanita di tahun 2021, berikut lima hal yang perlu Anda ingat.

1. Keuangan
Manajemen keuangan adalah bidang lain yang masih dihadapi banyak wanita, dan kemungkinan besar Anda juga perlu memperbaikinya. Meskipun ada banyak cara yang jelas untuk meningkatkan cara Anda mengelola keuangan, salah satu hal terpenting yang dapat Anda lakukan adalah mengembangkan kebiasaan menabung terlebih dahulu dan membelanjakan kemudian.

Ketika Anda menerima uang dari sumber apa pun, pertimbangkan untuk menyisihkan sebagian darinya sebelum membayar pengeluaran Anda saat ini. Tentu saja, Anda juga harus memiliki tujuan tertentu dalam pikiran Anda saat menabung. Apakah ada aset yang ingin Anda peroleh? Apakah Anda ingin berinvestasi?

Pikirkan tentang sesuatu yang dapat Anda capai dengan uang dan upayakan dengan menabung secara cermat. Menabung adalah salah satu cara termudah untuk mencapai kebebasan finansial.

Demikian pula, menabung untuk keadaan darurat atau biaya tak terduga agar diri Anda tidak mengalami masalah serius saat mengalami guncangan finansial. Ini juga akan sangat membantu untuk memberi Anda ketenangan pikiran dan kepercayaan diri untuk fokus pada hal-hal lain.


Untuk Wanita: 5 Hal yang Perlu Anda Tingkatkan di Tahun 2021

2. Aktivitas fisik
Kita semua ingin terlihat dan merasa bugar dan sehat. Tentu saja, jika Anda ingin meningkatkan tekanan darah, berat badan, kondisi kesehatan fisik kronis atau akut, dan kesehatan mental Anda secara umum, Anda perlu memprioritaskan olahraga. Ini juga salah satu cara terbaik untuk mencegah diri Anda mengembangkan masalah kesehatan baru.

Sayangnya, banyak dari kita yang menjadikan tujuan untuk lebih banyak bergerak dan lebih banyak berolahraga tidak pernah mencapainya.

Pada tahun 2021, luangkan waktu untuk melakukan setidaknya 30 menit latihan sedang hingga intens - tergantung pada tingkat kebugaran dan pengalaman Anda. Jika Anda sudah berolahraga, temukan cara untuk meningkatkan atau membawa rutinitas Anda ke level lain untuk hasil yang lebih baik.

3. Diet
Meskipn ini terdengar jelas, Anda perlu lebih memperhatikan apa yang Anda makan untuk meningkatkan kesehatan Anda di tahun 2021. Ingatlah bahwa makan sehat tidak berarti mengikuti salah satu diet populer atau makan makanan hambar. Anda sudah tahu apa artinya makan sehat; Anda tahu jenis makanan yang berbahaya bagi kesehatan Anda, dan makanan yang baik dan sehat.

Makanan buruk sering kali berupa makanan olahan, seperti gula atau makanan cepat saji yang sarat lemak. Makanan yang baik adalah makanan organik dan utuh, seperti sayuran yang belum diolah, roti gandum, jus segar, dan buah-buahan segar.

Saat Anda mencoba beralih ke pola makan sehat, tidak disarankan untuk melakukan kalkun dingin. Jika Anda terbiasa makan banyak makanan olahan, penting untuk menghilangkan dan menggantinya dengan pilihan makanan sehat secara bertahap sampai Anda puas dengan diet yang baru. Membuat perubahan pola makan yang tiba-tiba dapat menyebabkan rasa ngidam yang serius dan efek mengecilkan hati lainnya yang mungkin membuat Anda sulit untuk tetap berpegang pada diet baru Anda.

Ada banyak cara untuk meningkatkan diri Anda sebagai wanita tahun ini. Namun, untuk hasil yang bagus, mulailah dengan aktivitas fisik, diet, keuangan, pemeriksaan tahunan, dan kebiasaan merokok dan minum

4. Ujian Tahunan
Jika Anda belum mendapatkan pemeriksaan kesehatan tahunan, Anda perlu memasukkannya ke dalam daftar hal penting yang harus dilakukan tahun ini. Tidak peduli apakah Anda memiliki masalah kesehatan; Pemeriksaan kesehatan ini masih penting karena dapat membantu Anda mengidentifikasi masalah cukup dini dan memberi Anda ketenangan pikiran, menurut Harvard Health Publishing.

Selama janji temu standar, beberapa area yang akan diperiksa oleh profesional kesehatan adalah tekanan darah, berat badan, serta kondisi payudara, panggul, dan leher rahim Anda.

Ada pusat kesehatan hebat yang dapat menawarkan pemeriksaan kualitas di seluruh negeri. Lebih mudah untuk menjadwalkan janji temu Anda di lokasi dan waktu yang sama. Misalnya, jika Anda tinggal di Virginia, sebaiknya tes Anda dilakukan di pusat wanita VA pada periode yang sangat spesifik dalam setahun.

5. Merokok dan Minum Berlebihan
Merokok dan minum alkohol secara berlebihan sangat meningkatkan risiko masalah kesehatan. Kanker, osteoporosis, gangguan neurodegeneratif, artritis, dan depresi hanyalah beberapa contoh kondisi yang biasanya dialami perokok dan peminum berat.

Jika Anda salah satu dari orang-orang yang perlu mengurangi kebiasaan merokok dan minum mereka, jadikan tahun 2021 sebagai tahun Anda menjadi sukses. Saya akan sangat menyarankan Anda mengunjungi pusat kesehatan yang baik untuk mengakses sumber daya yang bagus untuk membantu Anda membuat kemajuan yang baik dengan cepat..(Regina Thomas )

Misal Anda ingin membeli sepeda yang akan digunakan di medan pegunungan yang cukup terjal. Sepedanya tentu tidak sama dengan sepeda yang dipakai di area perkotaan. Hal seperti ini yang harus diperhatikan dengan saksama agar tidak salah sejak awal. .


Mengenal Jenis-Jenis Sepeda untuk Segala Kebutuhan


Jenis-Jenis Sepeda dan Fungsinya.
Mengenal jenis-jenis sepeda sangat penting untuk memudahkan Anda dalam memilih sepeda yang memang sesuai dengan kebutuhan. Berikut jenis sepeda yang bisa Anda dapatkan di Indonesia. .

1. Sepeda Gunung.
Memiliki rumah di kawasan pegunungan atau perkampungan dengan akses jalanan tidak stabil memang merepotkan. Namun Anda tidak perlu khawatir, karena mobilitas tetap bisa dilakukan dengan baik kalau menggunakan sepeda gunung. .

2. Sepeda Balap.
Sepeda balap umumnya memiliki bodi ramping, enteng, dan rangka kokoh. Mengapa sepeda balap biasanya enteng? Kalau berat, akan membebani mereka yang menaikinya. Jadi, tidak bisa melaju dengan kecepatan tinggi dan memenangkan pertandingan. .

3. Sepeda Lipat.
Sepeda ini cocok sekali untuk Anda yang hobi menjelajah. Jadi, sepeda bisa dimasukkan ke mobil atau naik kendaraan umum. Setelah sampai di lokasi bisa langsung dibuka untuk digunakan. Sepeda lipat saat ini sedang tren dan harganya cukup mahal. .

Kalau Anda jarang sekali melakukan olahraga dan ingin mendapatkan motivasi untuk melakukannya, coba beli sepeda jenis sport saja. Sepeda jenis ini cocok untuk membuat Anda bergerak dengan lebih santai dan tetap mendapatkan keringat. .

Anda yang memiliki gaya hidup aktif bisa memilih sepeda jenis apapun. Namun, disarankan sepeda yang memang bisa membantu berolahraga untuk menghindari kebosanan. Misal sepeda lipat atau sepeda gunung bisa dipilih. .

2. Pertimbangkan Hobi.
Bersepeda tidak disukai oleh banyak orang meski sekarang sedang ngetren. Alasannya cukup sederhana, sepeda cukup menguras energi saat digunakan. Itulah kenapa beberapa orang lebih memilih untuk menjalankan hobi yang lain. .

Kalau sudah berhubungan dengan hobi dan baik untuk kesehatan, Anda tentu tidak akan asal-asalan saat beli. Beli saja sepeda yang bisa dipakai untuk bergabung ke komunitas. Bisa jenis sepeda lipat atau sepeda balap. .

3. Pikirkan juga Bujet.
Mau bagaimanapun, bujet tetap harus dipikirkan dengan baik. Kalau saat ini Anda memiliki bujet cukup banyak dan akan menggunakan sepeda sebagai hobi, tidak masalah keluar banyak uang. Namun, kalau Anda hanya memakainya kadang-kadang saja, beli yang murah asal berkualitas. .

4. Frekuensi Menggunakan Sepeda.
Tanyakan pada diri sendiri, kira-kira berapa kali menggunakan sepeda setiap minggunya. Apakah hanya sekali saja atau hampir setiap hari. Selanjutnya, jika dipakai setiap hari, kira-kira untuk apa, bekerja atau untuk berolahraga saja? .

Sepeda yang sering dipakai akan rawan terjadi kerusakan. Itulah kenapa Anda disarankan untuk membeli yang paling baik. Bisa memilih merek yang paling tenar. di pasaran. Kalau frekuensi pemakaian hanya beberapa kali saja, bisa pilih jenis apapun. 5. Peluang Dijual Kembali.

The days of seeing someone walking down a road with a stick, some string and a bucket of worms are as much a part of American culture as hot dogs, baseball and warm apple pie. Since that time, anglers now have many choices this summer, depending on where they’ll be fishing.

While selecting your gear is half the fun, set aside the rods, reels, jigs, rigs and tackle box, and don’t forget these equally important, but oft-overlooked items:

Take and use sunscreen. Sun poisoning only has to happen once for you to understand the relationship between sun and water. While the water may be ice cold, and temperatures outside chilly, sun reflecting off the water will still give you a glow that you’d rather not have. A sweatproof sunscreen that won’t run and sting the eyes is ideal, as is one that won’t leave a greasy residue that could affect your grip.

• Wear a base layer.

A thin T-shirt is a must-have as a base layer, better if it’s made of fabric that wicks away moisture. There are even some that are made to be water-repellent and stain-resistant with anti-odor properties for those in warmer climes. Since this layer is in direct contact with your skin, you want something that will allow moisture to escape as you warm up throughout the day.

• Find comfortable pants right for you.
Summer days on the water are sublime, but are usually an all-day events and call for versatility in your clothing. To that end, pants that convert to shorts can be ideal. Like shirts, pants should be stain-resistant. If the pants have plenty of pockets (with zippers) to carry anything extra, so much the better. If you don’t have access to a boat or dock, extend your fishing range with a good pair of waders.

• Cover your head.
For warmer temperatures, a wide-brimmed hat will guard against sunburn, overheating and overexposure.

• Bring the extras.
This might include a life vest, cooler or, if you’re a smokeless tobacco user, a portable spittoon like those offered by FLASR. The Atlanta-based company prides itself on its first-of-its-kind portable spittoon that is small enough to fit in your pocket and carry along wherever you go—whether its fishing on a lake or hunting in a blind. Its advanced closing mechanism ensures that it stays securely closed, eliminating the risk of spills and leaks in a boat.

Although it happened nearly 30 years ago, the story of Lorena Bobbitt and the domestic violence she endured still resonates today in the #MeToo era. Lifetime kicks off Memorial Day with the Ripped from the Headlines feature the premiere of "I Was Lorena Bobbitt" on Monday, May 25, at 8pm ET/PT. Lorena Bobbitt (now Lorena Gallo) serves as one of the executive producers on the film, as well as its narrator.

The story follows her journey from a young and innocent immigrant bride to a victim of domestic violence. In 1993, after years of abuse at the hands of her husband, John Bobbitt, Lorena fought back, cutting off her husband’s penis with a knife and becoming an unlikely international media sensation.

The film follows her evolution into a strong and thoughtful woman who has devoted her life to advocating for abused women."There are many reasons why I feel it’s important to share my story now," Ms. Gallo says in an interview.

"Lifetime gave me a platform and truly listened to my message about domestic violence, and I was actively involved in telling my story. I believe with the #MeToo movement and increased awareness of domestic violence and sexual assault that my message would be heard.

"The process of making the movie was very emotional, Ms. Gallo says."With me being so young and an immigrant, new to the United States and to endure the type of abuse that I went through, along with the court case and the media frenzy that followed, it is a reminder of what I had to go through to help to become the person that I am today.

The work that I do with the Lorena Gallo Foundation and other organizations is based upon my own experiences," she explains."I Was Lorena Bobbitt" stars Dani Montalvo ("Dispatches from Elsewhere") and Luke Humphrey ("Tiny Pretty Things") as Lorena and John. Ms. Gallo spent time discussing her past with Ms. Montalvo to help her prepare for the role. "We learned a lot from one another and I’m grateful for our time together," Ms. Gallo says.

The take-home message from the movieAccording to Ms. Gallo, is "that domestic violence is real and doesn’t discriminate. It can happen to anyone and there are definitely signs showing that someone is abused and it should be taken seriously and not overlooked."Ms. Gallo’s advice to others who are dealing with abuse:

"Never give up hope and be resilient."She emphasizes, "You are not alone and there are options and resources. Do not keep it to yourself. Contact family and friends and understand the resources available to you now, such as shelters, domestic violence hotlines, and social service organizations.

First responders and doctors are better trained to understand and deal with domestic violence-related problems." She adds, "Do not deal with the situation with the false hope that it will get better.

Silence is not an option!"Domestic and sexual violence is on the rise with many stuck at home with their abusers because of COVID/stay-at-home orders, so this movie is more timely than ever to help women with resources.

During the film, Lifetime will run a public service announcement for the National Domestic Violence Hotline and the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence featuring the actors and Lorena Bobbitt, as part of Lifetime’s public affairs campaign, Stop Violence Against Women.

Every October 31, the world celebrates Halloween. A festival originating from the Celts, the ancestors of European dance. Because Europeans like to wander, this culture also spread to other continents such as America and Australia.

The Halloween festival is celebrated by using scary costumes. Children walk around to neighboring houses saying "Trick or Treat". Yes, the sentence means "Give us chocolate or we are ignorant". At present, children are freed to pry into the homes of people who are considered stingy. Usually, they decorate the "stingy" tree with the toilet. Hahaha, that's funny. So what exactly is the Halloween story and what facts envelop it.

For most parents, Halloween is a holiday that involves taking at least one kid (if not more) trick or treating. While some parents may dread this task and prefer to be the one at home handing out the candy instead of walking through the neighborhood and going door-to-door, these few simple tips can make the evening a treat for you too.

• Courtesy.

There are social norms to be followed on Halloween, just like any othertime and this needs to be explained to your children. Remind them to say “thank you” and take a piece of candy if offered (even if it isn’t their favorite or first choice), without digging around in the bowl. Second, show respect for the homes and yards of those you visit by staying on the sidewalk or driveway, and not touching any of the flowers, pumpkins, or other holiday decorations (no matter how tempting it maybe). Third, avoid houses with lights off, and don’t knock or ring a doorbell more than twice.

• Control.
If you happen to be the parent tasked with escorting (and corralling) a large group of children, it’s easier to divide the kids into smaller groups of six or seven, and send each to a different house, then have them switch houses. You can tell them this will allow them to hit more houses more efficiently.

• Comfort.

Some parents like (or are convinced by their kids) to dress in costume.But that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice comfort. Your feet will thank you if you wear decent walking shoes or sneakers to chase your children along the street, and adult costumes that are overdone take away from the kids’ outfits, so keep them simple. In fact, throw on a funny hat or ears and call it a day. Bring something to drink if it’s hot, or sunglasses if you are out with younger children before the sun goes down.

Parents who are smokeless tobacco users can easily enjoy the evening out with a portable spittoon accessory from FLASR. The FLASR portable spittoon is designed to fit into a shirt pocket, and its unique design can be opened and closed with one hand for maximum discretion. 

The post-Civil War years were challenging and tumultuous times. The WARRANT, a new drama, brings this period to life with a story of hardship, friendship, and ultimately justice.Former Civil War hero John Breaker has become a local sheriff and does his best to keep the peace in rural Georgia.

That peace is disturbed when his son, Cal, a marshal, arrives with a warrant for the arrest of one of Breaker’s old army colleagues, Virgil St. Denis, now known as "the Saint," and leading a band of outlaws.Despite his better judgment, or perhaps because of it,

Breaker joins his son to track down St. Denis and put a stop to his raids, which threaten to drive the still-fragile union back into conflict. Along the way, both men deal with memories from the past that intrude on the present."

This post-Civil War action-drama is the first movie of its kind for Imagicomm Entertainment," says Jonathan Collins, vice president of digital media distribution for Imagicomm.

"The WARRANT showcases a period of American history that was full of heartache, sacrifice and standing up for what’s right," says Collins. "The story is relevant and personal, and captures your attention early on."The WARRANT is produced by INSP Films and distributed by Imagicomm Entertainment.

The all-star cast includes Neal McDonough (Yellowstone, Captain America), Casper Van Dien (Starship Troopers, Tarzan), Steven R. McQueen (The Vampire Diaries, Chicago Fire), and Annabeth Gish (X-Files, The Haunting of Hill House). In addition, Christie McNab brings some gun-wielding girl power as part of the Saint’s gang.

The WARRANT is available on DVD through major retailers, including Walmart and Amazon, through Vudu, iTunes, Christian Cinema, Google, Fandango, DirecTV, and Dish.The WARRANT continues the tradition of Imagicomm Entertainment films and television series with strong storytelling, memorable characters, and high production values.

It may be the only holiday on the calendar that rhymes. We’re alluding to a multi-week span of celebrating both “Dads and Grads,” in which Father’s Day shares the spotlight with all those hardworking students who are jubilantly tossing mortarboards into the air — and somehow you have to come up with gifts to celebrate the hard work of both.

Two things are certain: Dad doesn’t need (or necessarily even want) another tie, and gold pens for grads are about as passe as teaching penmanship in school.

Here are more ideas to inspire you and get your creative juices flowing:

• Something (Semi-) Practical.

Every kid going off to college or graduate school will want to personalize his or her new living space. If they’re budding entrepreneurs, they’ll probably genuflect before a framed art print of the original 1984 Macintosh computer, which was just named No. 3 on Time magazine’s list of “The 50 Most Influential Gadgets of All Time.”

And if the print includes an inspirational quote from Apple co-founder Steve Jobs himself — a la “The people who are crazy enough to change the world often do” — so much the better.

• Something They’ll Always Remember.
It’s been said that watches “telegraph” who we are — or who you aspire to be — to the rest of the world. So when The Wall Street Journal uses the word “perfect” to describe Baume & Mercier’s Clifton line of watches for men, you know they’ll be appreciated for years to come.

Does Dad like to channel his inner “Mad Men” masculine elegance of decades past? Then the ideal Father’s Day gift is the Clifton 10055 watch. It has a 43 mm case, a black alligator strap, a sun satin finish, a silver-colored dial with moon phase, day, month, and central hand functions. It’s sure to give dad a memory he’ll never forget.

As for grads, one reviewer gushed that the affordable new Classima 10214 model from the same Swiss watchmaker — complete with 40 mm polished steel case, blue steel hands,

Roman numerals, and a lined guilloche decor dial — enables those “on the threshold of their careers to treating themselves to a watch on a par with their ambitions.” Shop both watches at www.baume-et-mercier.com or by calling 1-800-MERCIER. Free gift wrapping and engraving are offered for all purchases.

• Something They Can Do

Together. It bears repeating that fathers, as Psychology Today says, not only “provide (their children) with approval and recognition,” but also help them become “more autonomous and self-assertive.”

In other words, they can never bond enough.  Ergo, buy dad and your grad tickets to some event they both like — be it a ball game or a concert — and maybe even spring for dinner out afterward.

When Halloween comes to your mind, it is always witches, pumpkins, bats, and black cats that you generally think of. But know much do you really about cats. You can check how much you know these creatures with the following fun facts attached to them.

People of ancient Egypt considered cats as sacred, though they brought good luck and were a helpful animal.

In Europe, during the middle period, people connected them to witchcraft to the extent that if a single elderly woman looked after some of these stray ones, she was taken to be a witch with these little ones as her associates in this.

In certain areas of Ireland and England, people think that should one such cat cross your path it will bring you good luck. Brides in the midlands of Great Britain are given cats to bring them good luck. When entering a home in Scotland, they are thought to bring in good fortune, forecasting a prosperous period ahead.

In Germany, it is thought to be a good omen when a black cat crosses your path from left to right. But it may be associated with bad luck when the cat goes from right to left in front of you.

For a pirate seeing a black cat can be sometimes very confusing, and an approaching one is unlucky. If it is moving away, it means good luck. When it is coming towards the ship but midway changes its mind to retract its steps, it is treated as a signal that the ship is about to sink and time that you got off.

Black cats seem to be lucky for fishermen who always kept them in their homes and even ships. Often people found them too expensive to buy.
Single women in Japan consider cats as lucky as they would help attract suitors to them.

In Russia cats of all kinds are considered a symbol of good luck.

There are many breeds of black cats. The directory of the Cat Fanciers Association says there are nineteen different kinds of such cats.

Their golden eyes with high level of melanin pigment make them look amazing.
They could be female or male but often they are boys. 17th of August is Black Cat Appreciation Day. The color black is such that it goes well with any color combination of your home furnishings or furniture.

Additional Information
It is advisable not to follow a black cat that is going beneath a ladder as it is thought to be unlucky.

If you want to bring home a black cat then it should be avoided during Halloween and you should rather do it before Halloween holidays begin as animals get frightened by the noises and costumes and movement of people during the festival and they are better off indoors.  Are you interested in pulling the cat facts prank on one of your buddies?

Gordon Scott Venters thrives on challenges. As CEO of The Movie Studio (TMS) in Hollywood — that’s Florida, not Los Angeles — he’s been in the entertainment industry for more than 20 years.

Venters’ resume reads like a who’s who of Hollywood (California), where he was president and CEO of Destination Television, now TMS. While Venters has a soft spot for the West Coast, he is betting that, like California, South Florida will become the premier destination to produce movies.

“The energy is completely different here than in LA, and making movies in Florida has some terrific advantages,” said Venters. “The visual landscape is stunning from a cinematic standpoint, there are diversified places to shoot and great visual optics. That’s the value proposition in Florida.”

It also doesn’t hurt that the rich and famous work and play in the Sunshine State.

As a publicly-traded micro-cap company, according to Venters, he knows that, although risky, there are huge growth opportunities for TMS (OTC: MVES).“We want to give our followers, shareholders, and supporters the chance to be a part of what we see as one of the newest hot studios providing full services in distribution, creativity, and complete production,” Venters said.

Currently, TMS has acquired a 60 percent membership interest in the Seven Arts Entertainment film library(SAFELA), giving TMS 14 titles including, “Drunkboat” with John Malkovich and John Goodman, “Night Of The Demons” with Shannon Elizabeth, “Fractured,” “Knife Edge,” “Shooting Gallery” with Freddie Prinze, Jr, “Nine Miles Down,” “Noise,” “The Pool Boys” with Matthew Lilliard, “A Broken Life” with Ving Rhames, “Autopsy,” “Deal” with Burt Reynolds and Shannon Elizabeth, “Boo,” “Back In The Day” with Ving Rhames and Ja Rule, and “Cemetery Gates.”

Venters says he plans to bundle these with indie movies that the studio has produced, such as “Exposure” — released on Netflix DVD and Amazon, and in Wal-Mart, Best Buy, and Target.

Other movies in the pipeline for TMS are “Bad Actress” and “Double Exposure.” The Movie Studio completed principal photography in Colombia, South America, for its film “Bad Actress,” starring Sean Stone, son of the iconic Hollywood director Oliver Stone, and The Movie Studio’s sensational Latina bombshell, Excelina from Colombia.

TMS has also completed its reverse stock split (OTC- MVES) finalizing the company’s corporate restructuring while tightening the float and outstanding shares. Movie Studio Inc. is also involved with music videos, television shows, and other intellectual properties. To learn more, visit www.themoviestudio.com.

As the high school and college football seasons heat up, the National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE) is encouraging parents, coaches, and athletes to refresh their knowledge on helmet safety and safe play.

Keep these three simple steps in mind:

1. Know Your Helmet
There are no concussion-proof helmets. No football helmet completely prevents all head injuries, including concussions.A concussion is a complex event that involves a variety of factors. Advertising or other media claims that a particular helmet is anti-concussion or concussion-proof are not supported by research and can be misleading and dangerous. Avoid relying on any single data point, rating, or measurement when considering helmet options.

Proper fit is critical. Helmets are designed for safety and performance based on proper fit, specifically, contact with the head. Ask your athlete how the helmet feels — helmets should not be too tight or too loose. Find fitting and wearing instructions through the CDC Foundation at http://www.cdcfoundation.org/HeadsUp.

Look for the logo on the back of the helmet that reads, “Meets NOCSAE Standard.” The NOCSAE logo signifies that a helmet model has passed the most rigorous, science-based performance standards in the world.

Do not alter or change your football helmet. Adding accessories and removing padding can alter how the helmet was intended to function and potentially interfere with its performance.

2. Maintain Your Helmet

Helmets should be reconditioned and recertified to the NOCSAE standard on a regular basis. Helmets that have been recertified will have a label inside the helmet indicating the name of the recertifying company and the date of recertification. If you have doubts, ask your coach or school administrator about their policy for reconditioning and recertification. Replace the helmet after 10 years.

3. Prioritize

Safe Play Football helmets are just one part of helping to protect against head injuries. Use proper blocking and tackling techniques and demand enforcement of rules that prohibit players from leading with their helmets to hit other players.

Know the signs and symptoms of concussions — which can include headache, nausea, confusion, dizziness, and memory difficulties — and encourage everyone to report any and all symptoms. If a concussion has been diagnosed, athletes should not return to play until cleared by medically trained experts following return-to-play guidelines. Remember: if in doubt, sit it out.For more information visit www.NOCSAE.org.

If you were one of the 73 million Americans who tuned in to “The Ed Sullivan Show” in 1964 as the Beatles irrevocably changed rock ’n’ roll, prepare yourself for perhaps the perfect vacation idea.

Did you embrace Beatlemania and never look back? If the answer is an enthusiastic “Yes,” the CIE Tours’ “Icons of Britain” may knock your Paul-loving socks off. While it’s not quite All Beatles, All The Time, the tour has several other must-sees in London, Scotland, and Wales. One big draw is seeing where the Fab Four got their start and recapturing what’s described as “the fevered feel of the early ’60s in Liverpool.”

Here’s some of what you’ll see:
• The Beatles’ Boyhood Homes.
It’s easy to imagine the teenaged Paul and John writing the lyrics to “I Saw Her Standing There” in the living room of the future Sir Paul McCartney’s humble 20 Forthlin Road house. As McCartney recalled: “I’d start off with ‘She was just 17, she’d never been a beauty queen.’ And he’d be like, ‘Oh no, that’s useless.’”

• The Cavern Club. Still a live-music venue today, the club hosted the Beatles 292 times. It’s especially packed when a tribute band dons mop-tops and “yeah, yeah” their hearts out. There was supposed to be a 293rd time—promised by manager Brian Epstein before the group ventured to America—but it never happened.

• Jaw-Dropping Castles. You will glimpse inside The Queen’s official residence, Windsor Castle, including recent—and possibly juicy—tidbits from a local tour guide about the goings-on there. Furthermore, a boisterous evening banquet at Cardiff Castle will explain what’s meant by “Welsh hospitality.”

• The Beatles Story. Nestled in the heart of Liverpool’s revitalized wharf district, this state-of-the-art attraction includes a behind-the-scenes look at Abbey Road Studios, an underwater trip on the Yellow Submarine and a “Fab 4D” extravaganza that uses the latest technology to bring the group’s music to life.

• A Taste of Scotland. Adventurous eaters can enjoy a dinner of Scottish specialties—including the infamous haggis—and a lively show featuring songs, stories, and a display of traditional step-dancing.

If You Go: The respected CIE Tours has escorted millions of Americans on motorcoach tours of Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales for more than 81 years.

May people consider spending time in nature and the outdoors a form of therapy. It not only gives them their much-needed time to unwind and relax, but it also gives them a whole lot of health benefits as a bonus. Being out in the sunshine, surrounded by greenery and fresh air alone can leave you feeling refreshed.

So get your gear out, plan a trip and remember these awesome reasons why camping is good for your health:

Fresh Air
Did you know that about 30 million people in the United States alone are affected by breathing-related problems? Experts say that air pollution is the number one cause. When you spend time in the woods, surrounded by trees, the air quality is immediately improved because there are less pollutants.

Exposure to fresh air is linked to better body function and improvement of moods!

Sun Vitamin
Exposure to sunlight is a must for everyone. We all need a healthy dose of Vitamin D, which we can only get if we spend time outdoors under the sun. Vitamin D is linked to the prevention of diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure.

When you camp, you are exposed to sunlight. Exposure to sunlight combined with the absence of artificial lighting is known to help reduce stress, restabilize your vision and boost your energy levels.

Better Sleep
Sure, new campers find it hard to sleep soundly in a tent. But with a few more trips using a good sleep system, you'll get the hang of it eventually. And once you do, you'll be able to enjoy restful sleep every time you go camping.

Your sleep cycles and natural circadian rhythm will improve because you are exposed to less digital devices, electricity and other distractions.

Exercise
Let's face it, even if you have no outdoor activities planned, a camping trip alone engages your muscles and encourages physical activity. Setting up your tent, building a campfire, loading and unloading your gear keeps you moving your body!

Peace of Mind
When you talk about overall health, it's not only about the body - you should have a healthy mind, too. Spending time in a quiet environment and connecting with nature promotes nothing but a healthy and happy mind.

You are able to forget about stress and your routine, connect with yourself, be inspired, and re-focus your priorities.

So the next time someone asks you why you love to camp - tell them these reasons why camping is good your health!

Even as baseball has put a "pause" on its season, it doesn’t mean that you can’t still support the person in your life that "lives for love of the game."Now there is a gift for the baseball fan who has everything – his or her own stadium.

A collection of exquisite models of Major League Baseball stadiums lets fans bring their favorite ballparks home. Searching for the right gift for Father’s Day, birthday, or any special occasion can be a challenge, but a one-of-a-kind rendition of a favorite stadium will be a showstopper for an art enthusiast, sports fan, or collector of sports memorabilia.

After all, nothing captures the spirit of a sports team like the stadium where the action happens and the memories are made. Many sports stadiums, both old and new, are works of architectural elegance, and the replicas from Westbrook Sports Classics let fans appreciate these iconic structures from a new perspective.

The stadium reproductions measure approximately 7-by-7 inches, weigh approximately 10-12 pounds, and come with a protective acrylic case. The models are designed and created by John Kimball Westbrook, an award-winning artist whose background includes the study of architecture as well as commercial art.

Mr. Westbrook also spent time in Washington, DC, on a scholarship to study with Italian stone carvers during the completion of the National Cathedral, where he developed his passion for sculpture."Over the past 30 years, I have worked with different fine art mediums, including carving marble, granite, various semi-precious stones, bronze, wood, ivory, silversmithing, drawing, and painting," Mr. Westbrook explains on his website.

The limited-edition ballparks are cast in a bronze composite with a marble base and feature tiny crystals that refract light to give the appearance of a stadium at night. The Westbrook Sports collection to date features 17 Major League Baseball stadiums, historic and current, including Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox; the former home of the San Francisco Giants, Candlestick Park; the Chicago Cubs’ Wrigley Field; and both old and new versions of Yankee Stadium.

All Major League Baseball trademarks are copyrights used with the permission of Major League Baseball, and Mr. Westbrook plans to expand the collection to National Football League stadiums and British football (soccer) stadiums as well.

A water park is a wonderful way for the entire family to have a lot of fun and get a break from the scorching summer heat. Most parks are packed with rides and attractions to entertain the old and young alike. Here are a few things to consider to get prepared for the trip to a water park:

Check the ticket prices and open times

If visiting a water park with the family it is worth checking the ticket prices to make it easier to budget for the day. For instance, if the tickets are a little expensive and you prefer not to spend much else on the day, taking along a packed lunch may be the right option.

Also, the time that you arrive at the park can make a difference on how busy or long the queues are for visiting the various attractions. Typically, the parks will be a lot quieter early in the day. Also, at this time the sun isn't going to be so strong.

Pack your supplies

The supplies for a day at a water park are likely to include things a bathing costume, a change of clothes, water socks, a padlock for your locker, goggles, a towel or two, lip balm, and sunblock if outside. A swimming cap can benefit those with long hair. For the less confident or young swimmers, a life-saving device is a useful thing to include.

Also, wearing a bathing costume under your regular clothes will help to speed up the process of getting ready after arriving at the park.

Invest in express passes
Many parks give the option to buy an express ticket which is a great way to get on a chosen attraction or ride a lot faster by skipping past the long queues.

Plan the tour of the park
It helps to plan the tour of the park to get on the popular rides at the best times. For instance, it can benefit to wait until the off-peak times before queuing for the best rides. During the busy times, it can benefit to visit an attraction that is open to visitors and doesn't rely on queuing, such as a wave pool.

Check on height and age restrictions

For families with small children, it is worth checking if any height restrictions are in place before getting in a queue. The rules and regulations can vary with the different rides, so it is necessary to keep checking this as you make your way around the park.

If you are going to buy a mountain bike, , make sure you follow the buying tips given below. Read on.

Determine your price
As far as the budget goes, there is no limit as to how much you can shell out for a new bike. If you want to keep your budget under control, make sure you decide on a price range that you can easily afford. For a better price and product, we suggest that you buy from a local shop.

Image from WIKIPEDIA


Find your style
Remember: mountain bikes are designed based on various riding terrains and styles. What you need to do is figure out the type of riding you do. Is it a trail riding, mountain cruising or cross-country racing? Actually, the bike you go for should suit your style.

Comfort vs Efficiency
Experts recommend that you get a full suspension bike, especially if you can afford it. You should know that hard tails with no rear suspension could be lighter and more efficient. On the other hand, full suspension designs may be more comfortable. Aside from this, they may have better control.

Find your favorites

You can't compare each component of two mountain bikes. The reason is that there are tons of combinations. Experts suggest that you look for a couple of important components for comparison needs. You should just go for your favorites based on your price range. You may start with the wheels, fork or the rear derailleur.

Get a good deal
The prices of the mountain bike may fluctuate throughout the year. The purchase season starts from spring and continues throughout summer. You can save some money if you can hang on until the price is right. You can also find some shops that offer discounts in addition to special products and services. There is no harm in buying from previous years' models provided it meets your needs.

Look for a good dealer
You should look for a good dealer because it's more important. Finding a good dealer must be your priority. The dealer should sell you the right product, not the most expensive one. Good dealers operate repair shops and they are trustworthy.

Test rides
You should test ride lots of bikes, but make sure that they fall in your riding style and price range. While testing different bikes, you will find that some of them feel better. Test rides will help you get the best mountain bike.

Do some research
If you want to know about the reliability and performance of a mountain bike, you may want to read product reviews. Make sure you read up on the bike prior to purchasing it.

So, if you have been looking for the best mountain biking, we suggest that you consider these 8 tips. With these tips, you will be more likely to get your hands on the best product. Hope this helps. (Shalini_Madhav / EzineArticles.com)

First of all, you must first come to Transmart Carrefour Kubu Raya on Jalan Ahmad Yani II Supadio. Please go up to the 2nd or 3rd floor. I don't remember exactly. Now when you get to the floor, you will be amazed like seeing a "city" in mini size.

Pertama sekali adalah kamu kamu harus datang dahulu ke

Second, you can go directly to the ticket window into the Roller Coaster vehicle. Shaped like a credit card made from plastic. The entrance price or ticket for this Roller Coaster ride is Rp.35,000, - per person, both adults and or children. Me and my two children so in total there are 3 people so Rp.35,000 x 3 is equal to Rp.105,000. 10K bonus for one game below.

Third, please go up to the Roller Coaster departure station by climbing the steps that have been provided. It is said that each time carrying 1 batch of Roller Coaster totaling 15 people. Even though when I tried it, it didn't even reach 15 people. Now when an officer arrives, show the card or ticket that you have paid and also struck or the print out a note to be validated by the Roller Coaster officer.

Fourth, make sure you sit in the space provided. The Roller Coaster is already similar to a train except that there are no walls and no roof. When I sat in the back it turned out that I was led to the front of whatever the reason. It's in the video that I included in this article. For safety reasons, a waist bag or other baggage on your body must be removed and left to the officer, all activities at the Roller Coaster station are recorded on CCTV

Fifth, for this 35K per person, you can only feel the rotation twice, or twice around with a relatively short route, said my friends who have tried Roller Coaster in Fantasia World (DUFAN), Jakarta, which is a long distance away farther and longer.

How does it feel? Wow For me, it's the first time Pontianak people say "great" taste. Maybe because of my innate fear of heights times yes. If you say that you are afraid, it's only natural. Humans also have fears, including me. To be honest, this Roller Coaster ride is really testing adrenaline, tense, and really very stressful. How about you all? Have you tried this Roller Coaster? How does it feel for the first time like me? Share please. (Asep Haryono)==

Kedua, anda bisa langsung menuju loket pembelian karcis masuk wahana Roller Coaster. Bentuknya seperti kartu kredit berbahan plastik. Harga masuk atau ticket untuk wahana permainan Roller Coaster ini Rp.35.000,- per orang baik orang Dewasa dan atau anak anak. Saya dan kedua anak saya jadi totalnya ada 3 orang maka Rp.35.000 x 3 sama dengan Rp.105.000,-. Bonus 10K untuk satu wahana permainan di bawahnya.

Ketiga, silahkan naik ke Stasiun keberangkatan Roller Coaster dengan menaiki anak tangga yang sudah disediakan. Konon tiap kali angkut 1 kloter Roller Coaster berjumlah 15 orang. Padahal saat saya mencobanya saat itu tidak sampai 15 orang sih. Nah saat ada petugas datang, tunjukkan kartu atau tiket yang sudah anda bayar itu dan juga struck atau nota print outnya untuk divalidasi oleh petugas Roller Coaster.

Keempat, pastikan anda duduk di tempat yang sudah disediakan. Roller Coaster itu sudah mirip dengan kereta api hanya saja tidak ada dinding dan atapnya. Saat saya duduk di bagian belakang ternyata saya dipimdahkan ke bagian depan entah apa alasaannya. Ada dalam video yang saya sertakan dalam artikel ini. Untuk alasan keamanan, tas pinggang atau tas bawaan lain di badan anda agar dilepaskan, dan dititipkan pada petugas, Semua aktifitas di stasiun Roller Coaster ini terekam CCTV 

Kelima, untuk tarif 35K per orang ini, kamu kamu hanya dapat merasakan putaran sebanyak 2 kali, atau sebanyak dua kali putaran dengan rute yang relatif pendek , ini kata sahabat sahabat saya yang sudah mencoba Roller Coaster di Dunia Fantasai (DUFAN) Jakarta yang jaraknya jauh lebih jauh dan lebih panjang.

Bagaimana rasanya? Wow. Bagi saya yang baru pertama kali sih deg degan juga. Orang Pontianak bilang "begegar" rasanya. Mungkin karena bawaan saya yang penakut akan ketinggian kali ya. Kalau dibilang takut ya juga sih, wajar saja. Manusia juga ada takutnya, termasuk saya. Kalau mau jujur sih wahana Roller Coaster ini memang sangat menguji adrenalin, menegangkan, dan benar benar sangat menegangkan. Bagaimana dnegan kamu semuanya? Sudah pernah mencoba Roller Coaster ini? Bagaimana rasanya untuk yang pertama kali seperti saya. Share donk. (Asep Haryono)
