3 Ways to Use Spring to Help You Through Your Grief

When we’re grieving, sometimes all we want is a fresh start. You can’t undo your loss, so the next best thing is to move forward. Spring is a time of «Rebirth.» It’s the perfect time of year to get a fresh start on anything. This spring, take advantage of the changing season to help you through your grieving process.

1. Make Time for Spring Cleaning

There’s something about the beautiful weather and warmer temperatures that makes us want to clean in the springtime. Clean anything; a room, your car, a closet, your entire house, your mind. This is a great opportunity to organize or update your memories. Have a shoebox of photographs you’ve been meaning to display? Take time to put together a new memorial with the pictures. If you’re feeling really ambitious, brighten up your house with new paint colors. Research shows that certain paint colors have an effect on our mood. Freshen up your living room with a sunny yellow accent wall or cover your bedroom walls with a cheery green color.

2. Plant Something

Spring is the perfect time to put your green thumb to the test. If you have room in your yard, plant a memorial garden in honor of your loved one. If planting an entire garden isn’t feasible, start small with a single plant. The growth and beauty of the plants or flowers will give you inspiration each day to live life. Spending time outside will help you to clear your mind and be at peace with your thoughts.

3. Start Something New

There’s always more going on during the spring and summer months. Find out what’s happening in the community, or think of a new hobby to try on your own. Pick your activity and make time for it at least once a week. Your new activity will give you something to look forward to and will help take your mind off of your loss, even if it’s only for an hour a week.

The spring months can actually be hard on a grieving person. It’s hard to watch everyone else moving forward with the changing season if you’re not ready. But keep in mind, just because you’re starting something new or changing things up doesn’t mean you have to leave anything behind. Your loved one would want you to enjoy the relief from the cold and take advantage of the wonderful things that spring has to offer.

The Night Hawk, the World’s First Stealth Bomber

When I visited the USA in 1998 as part of the air staff team, we were quartered at one of the USAF bases. At one end (that area was kept off bounds) we could see dark bat shaped planes. They were part of the secret arsenal of the USAF and from my knowledge; I knew that this was the famous stealth fighter. It was given the number as F-115 and called Night Hawk. The plane at that time was the most advanced in the world and nobody had anything like it.

Technology was Russian

The Night Hawk cost 111 million dollars apiece and was discontinued in the USAF after 25 years and replaced with the F-22 or Raptor. Never the less the F-117 was something unique and incorporated the stealth technology. This technology was published in a research paper presented in 1964 by a Russian scientist named Pykr. The Russians ignored this paper but the engineers at Lockheed studied the paper in detail. In effect, the Prof has stated that a plane could be made that could allow the radar waves to bounce off the plane and thus render the aircraft invisible to detection by radar. it could only be sighted visually.

It meant making a plane with an unconventional design. it had to have angles of construction, that were of a particular slant so that the radar waves could bounce off. The plane thus had the look of a bat and was christened the Night Hawk. The Night Hawk first flew in 1981 and a few years later was inducted into the USAF. The Night Hawk was a revolutionary design and for 5 years the Americans kept it secret before the world came to know of this unique plane. The Russians rued the development of the F-117 and wondered how they had missed the bus.

Operational use

The Night Hawk was put into operational use and used extensively in the air bombardment of Iraq, during the 1992 US-Iraq war. The plane despite a slow speed of some 660km/hr could not be detected. It had limited range of about 1000 km and thus for a target, it needed mid-air refueling. It carried no defensive armaments relying on its ability to attack a target undetected. It carried 2 x 1000 laser guided bombs, that could penetrate even 12ft of concrete and was thus a force multiplier. The Russians were however hard at work to perfect their own stealth fighter and the US the need of another plane was felt. Research started and this led to the led to the Raptor, which had a longer range and flew at 3 times the speed of the Night Hawk. Once the Raptor was ready for combat duty, the F-117 was phased out, but it served the US interests for 25 years. During this period only one Night Hawk was lost in combat over Serbia when a Russian missile was able to hit it. The pilot was rescued in a dramatic rescue mission, but the plane crashed. Russian engineers as well as Chinese salvaged parts of the plane and took it to Moscow and China in an effort to understand the stealth technology. Parts of the plane can see be seen in the Museum at Belgrade.

Last word

The F-115 remained the only stealth fighter in the world during the days of the cold war and even after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the plane was the mainstay of US offensive action. It was used extensively in Afghanistan when the USA mounted an invasion and no plane was lost despite missiles

Where to Buy a Machine Vise

Any wood working enthusiast will tell you the perfect addition to his set of tools is the machine vise. This is because these machines are versatile in what they can do, and allow you to press several pieces of wood together without worrying about clamping problems.

In fact, if you know someone in your family who is a miller, a milling machine vice could make a great gift, since a woodworker can never have enough vices for projects, which need to be completed. Any large project, which is undertaken, may require up to three different precision machine vises, depending on the size of what is being clamped and how long it needs to be held.

By purchasing a quality milling machine vise, you can be sure you are getting the right clamp you need for your project. Machine vises, which do not offer precision adjustments, are often bad for delicate work, as you could unknowingly cut into the wood while clamping it to ensure a seal. With precision vises, you will get the perfect clamp without cutting into the wood.

Because machine vises are such a popular item in any tool users’ arsenal, there are a wide variety of uses for them, not to mention the different styles, which are available. There are some types of vises, which can be applied freely in order to offer a firm clamp, and others, which attach to a table in order to ensure the perfect fit.

If you are not sure which type of machine vice you need, you should consider the benefits of both, and perhaps have both available in your tool arsenal. With free standing machine vises, you can complete your project and clamp it anywhere you wish. These are often best for larger projects.

With machine vices, that are large enough to be attached to a work bench or table, it is wise to have a smaller project, since the vise cannot be moved. Because they are anchored, these vises usually offer a superior grip, and can therefore clamp better than free standing varieties.

In addition to these types of machine vises, there are also large and small vices, depending on your needs. If you frequently work with wood, you should probably have several different sizes available at your disposal.

In addition, when shopping around for a machine vice, you will note that there are many manufacturers, which offer different pounds of pressure and precision control. Deciding how much compression power you need beforehand can help you pick the perfect vise.

Stansted Airport London – An Independent Travellers Guide

Of London’s airports, Stansted Airport is furthest from the centre of London, nearly 40 miles. The airport is dominated by low cost budget airlines and in particular Ryanair and easyJet, Europe’s largest low cost airlines.

The overwhelming majority of flights are European or UK domestic flights.

The airport also has significant charter traffic, particularly for the British travelling on package tours to the sun.

The main intercontinental and state carriers like British Airways, Virgin, American and Singapore Airlines all use London’s Heathrow or Gatwick Airports.

The airport is an established airport but was relaunched 15 years ago with a brand new terminal and infrastructure, including a direct rail link and motorway to London. At first it was a white elephant but the emergence of the low cost budget carriers has transformed Stansted into one of the fastest growing airports in Europe in the last decade.

Today, full capacity of the main terminal is within sight and a new terminal and further out a second runway is planned.

There are no surprises with the terminal itself, all the standard facilities are in place including choice of foreign exchange, pharmacies, news stands etc. There is a good range of eating opportunities ranging from fast food and pub food through to sit down restaurants. In common with all airports run by BAA, the owner, there is a lot of luxury shopping outlets. But remember, the vast majority of flights from Stansted are within the EEC and do not qualify for duty free status.

It normally takes around 30 minutes from touch down to exiting customs with most flights if you have luggage. There is an airport information desk immediately outside customs and a desk for AirportCarz who have a monopoly on taxi services at the airport. Taking a taxi to London is only used by a very small minority of passengers because of the distance and expense.

If your destination is London, the quickest option is to take the Stansted Express train. The train station is underneath the terminal so you just descend to the platforms by escalators or lifts.

The Stansted Express takes 45 minutes to London’s Liverpool Street Station and runs about every 15 minutes during the day. Last trains are around midnight. The fares on the Stansted Express are expensive, well over $US40 for a single return fare. The Liverpool Street terminus is also not very convenient for most travellers, being sited in the middle of the financial district of London, 3-5 miles from most of the most popular hotel accommodation. The train stops at an intermediate stop called Tottenham Hale, 10 minutes before Liverpool Street, an interchange with the London Underground (Victoria Line).

Many of the airlines will sell tickets for the Stansted Express, some at a discount, before landing at Stansted Airport.

The budget transfer option into London is to take one of four scheduled coach services run by National Express and Terravision. There is a large, modern coach station in front of the terminal, adjacent to the rail station.

The cheapest option is the Terravision service to Liverpool Street Station, the same route as the Stansted Express. The price is about half that of the Stansted Express Train. Downside like all road based transfers is the London traffic, on a good day the coach will make it in about an hour. National Express run services about every 30 minutes to nearby Stratford Underground at a similar price.

The other route taken by the coaches is Stansted to London Victoria. Both have return fares around $US25. The Terravision service is non-stop, the National Express service makes stops through central London, many of them close to the major hotel districts. The National Express service is a true 24×7 service, the Terravision service only stops for a couple of hours early morning. Some of the highest frequencies are around midnight Stansted-London and very early morning London-Stansted for the first and last flights when the Stansted Express and London Underground have shut down.

Because of the sometimes extraordinarily cheap fares of Ryanair and easyJet a lot of transcontinental travellers have found it cheapest to fly into Heathrow and then complete their journey to their European destination using a low cost airline from Stansted.

National Express run shuttle services between Heathrow and Stansted from the coach station at Stansted. There are usually a couple of services an hour, the journey taking around 90 minutes (though delays on the motorway are almost routine at rush hours). The fare is not cheap either. The return fare is about $US50. It is cheaper to use the indirect National Express service to Stratford and then catch the London Underground to Heathrow, but less comfortable.

If you want to stay over at Stansted Airport before a flight there are plenty of options available. Like all airport hotels at London, room rates are normally much cheaper at weekends than mid-week. If you are transiting from Heathrow or Gatwick which have much fiercer competition, you will probably find rates more expensive at Stansted, particularly in the budget sector.

Immediately adjacent to the terminal is the luxury Stansted Radisson SAS, the only airport hotel where you do not need a hotel transfer vehicle. This is perhaps the most luxurious hotel and at weekends rates can be fairly competitive. The original luxury hotel at Stansted is the 4 star Hilton Hotel on the airport perimeter. The Hilton Stansted runs its own shuttle bus from the coach station about every 30 minutes.

In the immediate vicinity of the airport is an Express by Holiday Inn and a Best Western. The consistently cheapest option is the Days Inn on a motorway services area at the entrance to Stansted Airport. It provides no airport transfer facility itself though of course there are taxis and a local bus service.

Apart from the chains there are a lot of independent hotels in the vicinity. These feature hotels for all budgets and tastes, ranging from Country House Hotels, to pubs to traditional Bed and Breakfasts. The countryside around Stansted is surprisingly unspoilt and there is opportunity to stay in a traditional market town or coaching inn for example.

Liverpool’s Preparation – Next Season

I think you all who are a Liverpool’s fan already know that Liverpool has a serious problem about their scorer. Almost in every game they had really good system and position, everything in the match always great except the striker.

Although, Dirk Kuyt ,Peter Crouch , Craig Bellamy or even Robbie Fowler had paticipated the game very well but they always loss the chance to score. When the goal was not coming, the pressure normally came to the player. The pressure will effected to decision of the player. The result is the play produce more mistakes and their rival use this mistake as opportunities to bring Liverpool down. No matter how strong Liverpool defender could be, it is not important if they can not score.

Liverpool will always have victory if they have the first goal. In other word, they always defeated when they loss the first goal to the rival. Eventhough, Rafael Benitez has incredible brain to solve any problem in every situation but the key is the players not the manager. I had been waited Liverpool to buy new striker so long time but he still not come for now.

However, I think Liverpool has fitting red engine in the middle area on the squad. Steven Gerrard and Xavi Alonso are do well in their position. Furthermoe, Javier Mascherano coming is a appropriate combination. During the close of this season I hope Liverpool will approach another striker to improve their weakness.

Now I prefer English Premier League more than UEFA Champion League.

IPL Cricket

Indian Premier League (IPL) is a 20-20 cricket tournament which is being played between eight Indian city franchises. The IPL cricket matches were first started on April 18 at Chinnaswamy stadium in Bangalore. The concept of the Indian Premier League is a newfound dynamism in the cricketing world. Many companies are betting on twenty20 cricket to attract a whole new generation as well as the exorbitant money that is associated with it.

It is one of the most ambitious and brilliant ventures that has taken off in the history of Indian cricket, changing the course of the game.

These matches are live. The Teams are attempting their best to emerge the winner and the players are competent and are ensuring team spirit that is positive and co-operative.

Chennai Super Kings started brilliantly but ended up on a bad note. Mahendra Singh Dhoni is the captain of the team and they are putting up their best to showcase a good match.

Rajasthan Royals has been performing well as they won five matches at a go. Shane Warne is the captain and is leading his pack really well.

Delhi Daredevils are looking strong and their team of Asif, McGrath, Sehwag and Gambhir is consistently performing.

Kings XI Punjab is doing well with Yuvraj Singh as the captain. The team has all its hopes pinned on such players as Sangakkara, Hopes and Sarwan. Irfan Pathan is doing well behind the stumps.

Kolkata Knight Riders are working their way to the top. After their dismal performances, they are trying their best to put up good performances. Saurav Ganguly is leading the team and one is anxious to look forward to their winning performances.

The Mumbai Indians have bounced back and are going in for some great performances after a slump.

The Deccan Chargers are yet to revive their glory after a series of dismal performances. So one needs to wait and watch if they bring much acclaim to IPL.

Yuvraj Singh of Punjab XI Kings has scored six sixes in an over. This has made him the only player in international cricket to make the fastest fifty in Twenty20.

Sohail Tanvir has taken six wickets against Chennai Super Kings. The Rajasthan Royals, thereby bringing them to the forefront of the IPL T20 matches.

These cricket matches have caused a lot of excitement as enthusiasts await the result of the teams but still is it a money making business or people are really liking this concept?

Turf Seeds for All Your Sports

Turf seeds, in general, are used for leisure, landscape, and sports, however, sports constitute the largest share of all the uses. Such seeds are used in a number of sports, be it cricket, golf, football, baseball, etc. There are various types of seeds, each suited for a different sport, for instance, the most preferred varieties for golf are Ryegrass, Creeping Bentgrass, Bermuda Grass, Zoysia Grass, etc. There are several types in the market, like Creeping Bent Grass, Blue Kentucky Grass, Tall Fescue Grass, Rye Grass, Bermuda Grass, Zoysia Grass, Bahia Grass, and others.

Does this market for sports turf seed offer any benefits?

The demand for them is a derived demand for turf-based sports fields, and with increasing number of tournaments, including the yearly Indian Premier League (IPL), the demand for it has been increasing rapidly over the years. There are a number of factors that make a natural turf field superior to an artificial one, some of the factors are stated below:

• soil restoration and improvement

• noise abatement and glare reduction

• heat dissipation and temperature moderation

• surface water protection

However, with the growing trend of synthetic fields around the world, the growth of the market has somewhat slowed down.

What is the scenario for such a niche market?

A report by a market research firm estimates a 10.2% CAGR for the global sports turf seed market, which was worth USD 836.7 million in 2015.

What we are observing globally, in terms of sports turf seeds, is that the world trade of turf grass seed revolves around five major players. The United States is by far the largest producer and exporter of grass seed in the world. This is followed by the EU15 as a whole, then Canada and New Zealand follow. The other nations of significance in the market are Argentina and the Czech Republic.

The main hurdles for the global turf seed market are; falling yield, rapid adoption of artificial turf, and rising costs of growing turf seeds.

However, with increasing number of research studies ongoing for the development of drought tolerant and other types of turfs around the world. For instance, Grass Traits and Varieties (GTV) program represents research on a wide breadth of target traits for grass cultivars in the United Kingdom, it is expected that new and better varieties are likely to be developed in the future, which may further drive market growth.

Growth of Pro-Kabbadi League in India

Introduction

Hero Indian Super League (ISL) is slowly becoming the most watched sports tournament after Indian Premier League (IPL). It had a total reach of 74.7 million on its launch day. With this trend, the total viewership of the tournament has reached such a level that it has become money-maker for the corporate world in India. If you look back at the history, you can safely conclude that it is second only to the T20 cricket tournament IPL. Other tournaments such as football leagues lag far behind in terms of total viewership. With the increase in popularity, even the people from the foreign countries have started participating in the later editions of this Pro-Kabbadi League. In this article, we would be looking at Pro-Kabbadi League across different editions to understand its growth in that country.

ISL Viewership

The Sports Channel network had done a survey of the most viewed tournaments in the sports arena. The survey looked at the reach of people in different national and regional channels. A total of 8 channels were brought under the online survey. ISL has grown in stature due to lot of publicity featuring the starlets from the land of dream merchants. It started with national channels and then moved to regional channels as well. The online survey has found that the ISL moved ahead of other tournaments, especially the second edition of football World Cup held in India. Other tournaments such as the I-League, the English Premier League and the Calcutta Football League have also fared far behind by a large margin. This is primarily due to the attractive packaging of the league matches to bring large herds of fans to the venues. The organizers have taken the cue from the success of Indian Premier League.

Viewer Statistics

The broadcaster Star Network aired the first ever edition of Pro-Kabbadi League two years ago. It went on to become the most-viewed sporting extravaganza in the country. However, it remained in the second place when compared to that of IPL. After reaching the viewership of 74.7 million in the first 10 days, ISL went on to attract a total of 435 million people when the tournament reached its crescendo in the second edition. This indicates that the viewership of kabbadi and football has increased over a time period and it is progressively increasing. With the chipping in of the marketing team, the reach of these two tournaments increased several fold in the third edition.
