Heifery Thing Must Go

Deep down, I’m just an old romantic. I always hold the wife’s hand when we go out together; it restricts her swing.

It’s somewhat clichéd to speak of the ‘romance of the cup’, but even I’m going weak at the knees at the prospect of Chelsea v Macclesfield.

My heart yearns for the Silkmen, but my head is saying Chelsea; and I refuse to argue against head. You can’t back the champions at odds as short as 1/40, but covering the 1-0 / 2-0 / 3-0 / 4-0 correct scores can land an even money coup.

They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach; there’s been a lot of love for Frank Lampard. The plump midfielder looks the best bet for the first goal at 4/1.

I found it absolutely outrageous that Wayne Rooney was caught singing anti-Scouse songs in a boozer with Gary Neville. Why on earth would anyone go out with Gary Neville? Everyone wants to pal-up a Man U win over Villa at 3/10.

I’m not superstitious, but i can’t shake the feeling that Henrik Larsson is destined to net the opening goal against his former mentor. I’ll be crossing fingers, touching wood and kicking black cats in the hope of a 9/2 payout.

I was shocked to see that Liverpool were ‘odds on’ to beat Arsenal; the Scousers’ record against ‘the big 3’ is so poor, it’s been claiming benefits. The Gunners are simply too big to miss at 11/4.

Thierry Henry danced on the touchline when he found the net on his midweek comeback; i’ll be having a hoedown if Henry opens the scoring at 11/2.

My problem is I love too much, although admittedly, for not very long. I’m currently infatuated with the 6/5 on offer for Fulham to hunt down the Foxes.

Tottenham would not have been happy about drawing Cardiff away, it’s in Wales. The Bluebird’s form has dipped dramatically in recent weeks; Spurs can romp in at a sheepish 4/5.

Hossam Ghaly lost four teeth after being kicked in the face on New Years Day; he’ll feel at home amongst the Welsh. It’s a toss up between Berbatov and Defoe for the first goal; they do things a little differently in the valleys.

In football, as in life, nobody wants to go to Doncaster. The League One outfit have only lost once at home all season, and have won their last five without conceding in front of their own supporters. Bolton have drawn the short straw, the Rovers can land the upset at 5/1.

Paul Heffernan has scored in six of his last seven games for Donny; not for the first time, I’ll be getting on a Heffer at 9/1 to score first.

Portsmouth v Wigan is a rematch of the six-pointer they shared earlier in the season. It wasn’t a relegation scrap; the Premier League awarded Pompey the extra points because Benjani scored the winning goal. Portsmouth are good things at 4/5 for a repeat.

It’s better to have loved and lost, than to end up with a Sweaty. The draw has been priced up at 7/2 between West Ham and Brighton; I’m besotted.

I’m beginning to feel sympathy for Andy Johnson. The only way he’ll be awarded a penalty against Blackburn is if Robbie Savage were to run him over with his motor, home. Everton will run all over Blackburn at 11/10.

The wife has got to go. She told me that I had a face that only a mother could love, I think she suspects something. I’m highly suspicious about the rather large 7/4 about a Birmingham win over Newcastle.

Birmingham, Fulham, Everton and Spurs form the weekend accer. The 18/1 payout is so enchanting, it reminds me of when I first fell for the wife; it was a cracking left hook.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 Vs Fifa 2009

Well the time of year has again approached where the two rival football games go head to head in the Christmas war. Who will come out the most successful? Who knows, only time can tell. But let’s have a look at both games and rate each one.

Fifa 2009

First we take a look at Fifa 2009, the game which is highly anticipated every year looks to have improved itself on the game play side of things. From the start Fifa have this time wanted to get the game completely right, they begun the creation of Fifa by gathering criticisms from gamers and critics and it has sure paid off.

The game is much more improved then as of previous years, including ball physics and the collision system. You can also switch the camera view to any specification that you would like. But it does not end there, Fifa have made some amazing additions to the game such as the Be a Pro Seasons mode, the Adidas Live Season, and the 10-on-10 football. This all sets Fifa up to potentially dominate the football games industry once again.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2009

Well pro evolution soccer look to have put its gear stick on full throttle, and have realised they needed to bring back the game that won so many peoples hearts on the PS2. The game play is very much similar to that of its golden days, but it looks as though PES have not really considered the graphics side of things very well.

But the positive site of things is that the game play is very natural in itself and not to mention that they have the UEFA champion’s league licence, they also have Manchester Utd’s and Liverpool’s licenses, but besides from that the rest of the players have obscure names.

Conclusion

Well in my eyes there can only be one winner, Fifa’s new revamped look and game play over the last few years has set them up to dominate the gaming industry. There graphics completely trumps over those on PES, and with Fifa owning a lot of the unique licences, PES still has a long way to go. The once dominating football game for the PS2 has been outwit and outrun by the all so mighty Fifa.

This being said though, the overall game play of PES does still grow on you after a while, but as technology progresses that just is not enough and more needs to be done.

Compared to all other football games these two knock the socks off the rest.

The Smart Contact Lens Bubble

New technology is being created faster and faster these days. The rapid pace of development in the tech sector is changing the world around us in fantastic ways, connecting all aspects of our lives through tiny gadgets. In less than ten years we’ve seen the release of the first smart watch, the iPhone, the first smart TV and internet connected cars among many innovations. The internet of things, as it has become to be called, is only in its infancy, but tech companies are trying to find new and imaginative ways to integrate the World Wide Web into our lives. Our clothing, think of the self-drying coat and self-tying shoes from Back to the future 2, our kitchen appliances, refrigerators that tell you what food and when you need to buy it, and even our books, have become internet connected. The newest gizmo in the internet of things that is soon to be released is the smart contact lens.

Sony, Samsung, Google and a few lesser known companies have all filed patents in the last couple of years in a race to be the first to bring the lenses to the market for consumer purchase. Each company seems to have focused on a different issue. Each one encompasses a unique feature, such as taking photos, augmented reality or addressing health concerns, while other features are ubiquitous to all the manufacturers’ lenses.

Sony was recently awarded a patent in April of 2016 for a smart contact lens that will take photos and videos of what the wearer is seeing. The lens can do most of what a camera can do. Just like a camera it is capable of autofocus, exposure adjustment and zooming. The patent lays out the lenses ability to calibrate the camera with a wearer’s blink. Want to take a photo? Just blink three times really fast. Want to take a video? Just squint really hard for three seconds. The contact also uses an electroluminescence display screen to playback recorded content. You can do all this without ever looking at your smartphone, but just by looking straight ahead. All of the registered content can then be wirelessly transferred to your smart phone or computer for later viewing.

Samsung was also given a patent in April 2016 in South Korea for its own smart contact lens. The Samsung lens will take photos and videos just like the Sony lens, however it will also have imbedded augmented reality. With a built in display that projects images directly into the wearers’ eye, the Samsung smart contact lenses will have the ability to superimpose computer generated images onto the real world, all while being less visible when worn. If you are curious what the restaurant across the street serves simply look at the front of the building and the menu will appear across your field of vision. Look down the street to see who has the best gas prices and little speech bubbles will pop out from the curb with the amount per gallon inside. Say you’re on a blind date and want to find out more about the person sitting across from you. You can check their Facebook page without ever having to leave the table or pull out your phone. Imagine having the ability to read a foreign language without ever having taken classes, or being able to navigate a place you’ve never been to effortlessly. The applications for this are endless.

Google’s smart contact lens patent approval arrived a month later than Sony and Samsung in May 2016. Google being Google though, they are taking the smart contact lens road a little less traveled; the contact lenses will have to be surgically implanted in your head. Google has partnered with Novartis, the parent company of Alcon contact lenses, the company that used to be known as Cibavision, to develop a lens with flexible electronics and sensors thinner than a human hair that will help those suffering from diabetes. The embedded lenses will read chemicals in the tear fluid to determine if the wearers’ blood sugar levels have fallen to near fatal levels. Upon diagnosing the patient’s glucose condition the smart contact will then be able to administer the insulin itself, if needed. While it may seem a bit intrusive, this would be a great, pain-free alternative for diabetics who prick their fingers daily or who constantly wear a glucose monitor. This is excellent news for diabetics, but Google’s smart lenses could be used by anyone looking to maintain great energy levels or even stick to a healthy diet. In the long run Google is also looking to implement features that would be capable of correcting myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism as well as presbyopia eye conditions. This would make the need for wearing glasses and traditional contact lenses a thing of the past. The patent states that the smart lenses will either be solar powered or be charged by the movements of your eyes. Now that right there is just amazing!

One last company that is on the forefront of the smart lens bubble is Ocumetrics. While lesser known than the previous three tech giants, Ocumetrics may be the first company to roll out a smart lens for sale to the public. Designed by Dr. Garth Webb to enhance the vision of those that need it, the Ocumetrics Bionic Lens as they’re calling it, will not only give the user 20/20 vision, but could actually enhance that by up to three times – yup that’s right, a zoom lens! These lenses would need to be surgically inserted in an in and out eight minute operation. The result would be immediate vision correction. In addition to overcoming the list of ocular vision ailments, the patient would never have a chance of getting cataracts as the lenses would never wear away and the software could be updated wirelessly as needed. Trials need to be carried out first, but the tech could be ready to go in just a few years.

This is an amazing time we live in.

Premier League Match Time: Chelsea Vs Blackburn

Premier League match time arrives at Stamford Bridge when Chelsea host Blackburn, in match week 23, on January 15.

This is the second meeting between the teams, this season; the first leg was hosted by Blackburn on October 30 and went 2-1 in the champions’ favour. The score-line doesn’t give a true indication of Rovers’ excellent showing on the day. Emerton and Miame Diouf gave great support to Benjani a stand out performer who put the home side ahead on 21 minutes. It can justly be said that Blackburn took the game to Chelsea, but in the end it was a tale of missed opportunities for Sam Allardyce’s squad, with Pederson wayward with his free-kicks.

Under the cosh in the first half, Chelsea made a better fist of it in the second, with Ivanovic, Zhirkov and Cole all standing up to be counted on a day Terry and Drogba looked off-colour.

Head to head, Chelsea have established a 12-2 lead over Blackburn in 20 league games played between the sides over the last decade.

Chelsea, who led the points table up to match week 15, appear to have come apart at the seams, in their last 10 games, winning just 2, while losing 4 and drawing the remainder. Those 4 defeats include a shock 1-0 loss at Molineux to Wolves in match week 22.

Blackburn have given a better account of themselves, by winning 4 while losing 5 and drawing 1 of their last 10 league games. They won their last game, at home against Liverpool, by a 3-1 margin.

Currently placed 5th in the table, Chelsea have won 7 of 10 games hosted by them while drawing 2, and losing just the one. Blackburn, in ninth place, have won just 3 of 11 games on the road, while losing 7 and drawing the remaining.

Though their current form appears impressive, Blackburn will find the going tough playing the champions away at Stamford Bridge. Ancelotti’s men will have a point or two to prove as they strive to catch up with Manchester United who have been moving farther adrift with every succeeding game. More importantly, Chelsea will try to prove their naysayers wrong, as the champions appear to have been written off as title contenders this season, by all but their most fanatic supporters.

Chelsea had the following men in their starting eleven against Wolves in match week 22: Cech, Bosingwa, Ivanovic, Terry, Cole, Ramires, Essien, Lampard, Kalou, Drogba and Malouda. Kakuta, Sturridge and Anelka were used as substitutes.

Blackburn’s starting eleven against Liverpool in match week 22 comprised Bunn, Salgado, Samba, Nelsen, Givet, Hoillett, Dunn, Pederson, Olsson, Diouf, Mwaruwari. Goulon, Morris and Diouf were he substitutes who played in the game.

Coping With Ocular Allergies

Warm sunny days are here again and most welcome them with open arms after a long, cold winter. The drawback for allergy sufferers is that allergens are everywhere and seem to be especially bad this year.

Allergies not only affect the nasal passages, but can affect the eyes as well. Ocular allergy, or allergic conjunctivitis can cause itching, redness, lid swelling, tearing, light sensitivity, and swollen eyes. Severity of symptoms can vary from mild irritation to severe itching and burning.

It is estimated that 20% of Americans suffer from ocular allergies. Eyes are especially vulnerable to allergens and irritants. Allergens cause cells in the eye to release histamine, which causes blood vessels to dilate and mucous membranes to become itchy, causing the eyes and lids to become inflamed. When the blood vessels expand, more allergen molecules can flow from the bloodstream to the eye, causing redness and swelling.

Allergens are more prevalent outdoors, but common indoor allergens include pet dander, dust mites and molds. These indoor allergens are present year-round and cause perennial allergic conjunctivitis for some.

For contact lens wearers, the irritation caused by ocular allergies, can be particularly severe. Allergens can bind to the contact lens surface and prolong exposure to the eye. Ocular allergies can drive some contact lens wearers to stop wearing contacts. Increasing the frequency of lens replacement can be helpful. Talk to your doctor about daily disposables. A research study found 67% of patients with allergies reported improved comfort with dailies.

Treatment:

Response of symptoms to anti-histamine medication can indicate whether the symptoms are being caused by allergies. Allergy testing and review of patient's life and environment help to identify sources.

If you suffer from an ocular allergy:

· See an allergist to identify allergens causing symptoms.

· Some people find comfort in cold compresses on the eyes. The compression reduces the inflammation in the blood vessels. Artificial tear drops cooled in a refrigerator can provide similar relief.

· Topical medications are commonly used and tend to be an effective ocular allergy treatment. Delivering medication directly to the eye reduces the risk of side effects to other areas of the body. Dual action anti-allergic medications are applied twice daily and combine antihistamine with medication that stabilizes the eye's mast cells. These medications can be applied before inserting lenses in the morning and after they have been removed at night, maintaining contact lens wear and minimizing discomfort associated with allergies. Ask your doctor if this might work in your case.

Using Spinnerbaits – The Best Versatile Bait Ever Created

Using spinnerbaits in your arsenal will put more fish in your boat and a fantastic all-season lure. The first patented spinnerbait was in 1950 and one year later fishermen started using spinnerbaits that had a weed guard added to make it weedless, little did they know at that time that they had the best versatile bait ever created. Shad are the primary source of readily available food for crappie, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, catfish, stripper and walleye. This is why using spinnerbaits are a primary go to bait. A survey was conducted on tournament fishermen and pro’s to what type of bait did they use as their primary bait, the number one answer was that 80% were using spinnerbaits, 12% said they favored the jig and pig, and 8% went for swim baits like rattletraps or billed type crank baits.

When shad’s seasonal pattern’s change you will know that crappie and bass are not far behind. In the fall to winter transition, baitfish will migrate to deeper waters to stay for the winter and the fish will follow and gorge themselves on the way to their wintertime haunts as the waters get colder, all fishes metabolism slows down to conserve energy. Spring time comes you will find that shad will start migrating from deeper water to making their way back to shallow creeks as the water warms up to feed on small crustaceans and plankton. You will know that your primary goal is to find the baitfish because crappie and bass are not far behind and that’s why using spinnerbaits are the ultimate weapon.

Now that you know that crappie, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass feed on shad comes the task of what types of spinnerbaits do you need to have in your arsenal. When you are fishing for crappie, try using spinnerbaits with a small single blade. Add a small grub as a trailer on 8 to 10lb line, or find crappie spinners that look like baitfish with several different color choices, don’t be surprised when you are in the shallows in springtime and you are bass fishing off a moss bed and a large crappie slams your spinnerbait.

Crappie spawn at the same time bass do, they literally share the same shallow waters so you always want to match the colors of baitfish, always remember that fishing deeper waters in most cases baitfish are darker in color so a good choice would be to use more silver/black, or gold /silver type spinnerbaits. When you are following baitfish to warmer clearer water using spinnerbaits the ticket is white shad colors. Early morning or murky water or even cloudy days one of the most productive spinnerbaits to use is the chartreuse/white or fire tiger colored spinnerbaits.

When you start using spinnerbaits more often you will see how incredible these baits are to use in the right situation, you can burn them, slow roll, bounce them off the bottom, crash them into trees,  rip them out of moss or rock structures, also let’s not forget humps, points and creeks. Now, with literally thousands of colors, sizes, skirt sizes, blade choices such as Colorado (more vibration in murky water) or willow leaf blades (speed and flash in clearer water) and there are hundreds of choices you can make that can be changed out right there on the lake. In most cases stick to the basic shad colors and keep it simple, you will catch more fish using spinnerbaits.

Safety Arsenal – The Basics of Self Defense Devices

The Basics of Self Defense Devices. Self defense devices are by their nature intimidating. For those unfamiliar with their use and operation, they can be just as foreboding by their looks alone as for their deterrent on criminals. This is actually misleading, because many of the self defense devices commonly available to the public are conceived and designed with both safety and ease and quickness of use deliberately in mind. The following five devices are by no means a complete list of the self-defense products available to the consumer, over-the-counter market. However, they are routinely the most popular and are also widely available online.

Stun Guns and Tasers

Stun guns and tasers use powerful electric shocks to disable opponents by constricting their muscles to the point of temporary disability. Many are small enough to fit inside a woman’s purse or within an inside jacket pocket. They are battery operated. A taser is a stun gun that uses two powerful pitons and flexible wires to deliver the electrical charge. A stun gun is routinely shaped much like a woman’s razor and contains powerful conducting needles that deliver the shock.

Pepper Sprays

Pepper spray, sometimes referred to as OC spray, capsicum spray, or OC gas, uses powerful irritants to inflame the eyes and sinus passages. Pepper sprays commonly use some form of capsaicin, an irritant found within chili peppers of Central America. Very common in riot control among police agencies worldwide, the effects of pepper spray are both nonlethal, but also very painful and discomforting. Pepper spray routinely causes coughing, watering of the eyes, spastic sneezing fits, and other allergy-like effects. Capsaicin is not soluble in water, and removing it from the face and sinus passages usually requires considerable effort. Nasty stuff to say the least!

 Mace

 Mace, like pepper spray, is a form of tear gas or lachrymatory (tear-inducing) agent. It’s typically delivered via aerosol spray can. Its volatile nature has made it illegal in many countries, and pepper spray has largely replaced it for civilian use. MACE is also a brand name of pepper sprays that include gel and foam solutions. The term «mace» is often used interchangeably with «pepper spray,» though the two have important chemical differences.

Personal Alarms

Similar to a car alarm for the body, personal alarms include handheld sirens, whistles, and other accessory-ready items that are easily carried on the person to alert of danger. Many personal alarms are electronic, while some whistles retain the timeless mechanisms of such items of yesteryear. Some electric models also include strobe lights, flashlights, and other distracting effects that improve visibility even while working to disorient an attacker. Still other classes serve as dog repellents and early-warning home safety alarms.

Diversion Safes

Remember the spy TV show where every routine item housed a secret compartment or gadget? Diversion safes work on the same principle, allowing security items such as spare keys, money, or valuable information to be stored «hidden in plain sight» with a replica façade. Some diversion safes take the appearance of weathered car fluid containers, making them perfect for camouflage use in the garage. Others are designed to resemble light plugs, book, flowerpots or wall sockets.

With the array of self defense products, and new self defense product options available to combat crime and deter theft, many Americans can now protect themselves and loved ones effectively.

Vacation Destinations in England

At times it seems that the United Kingdom, and especially England, is just one large vacation destination due, mainly, to the fact that wherever you find yourself you are never too far from a first class tourist attraction, area of outstanding natural beauty, an outstanding museum or art gallery or a city crammed full of amenities suitable for all manner of vacations or city breaks.

Most people who visit England on a vacation tend to choose the capital city, London, as their destination. While this makes total sense if you are only likely to visit the country once or twice there are plenty of other great places to visit and spend a few days or weeks. London has some of the most instantly recognisable visitor attractions in the world and the most famous are usually associated with the British Royal Family, for example Buckingham Palace. Being the capital city it is also home to some of the country’s finest museums and art galleries however equal museums and art galleries are found across the country such as the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool.

Cities such as Liverpool are fast becoming popular destinations for visitors looking for something a little bit different to their usual seaside vacation. While the city has plenty of visitor attractions associated with the world famous sons of the city, the Beatles, you do not have to look too far before you find something of outstanding quality. The Albert Dock complex is well worth a visit and it is where you will find the Tate Gallery and the Maritime Museum. Recently the European Capital of Culture the city has plenty to keep visitors entertained and few places offer such a lively and entertaining nightlife.

If you are looking for a seaside vacation England has plenty of excellent seaside resorts with the most popular being Blackpool, Brighton and Newquay. Blackpool and Brighton both have a long association with tourism and while Brighton benefits from a large youth and student population to boost its nightlife Blackpool is more popular for such things as stag and hen parties. Newquay is a popular family seaside destination but it is also one of the best places to either go surfing or to learn to surf. Miles and miles of gorgeous Cornish beaches provide some of the finest surfing opportunities in the United Kingdom.

One of the great things about taking a vacation in England is that wherever you choose to stay you will find an England hotel, guest house or B&B to match your budget. If you want to stay somewhere cheap and cheerful there are plenty of two and three star establishments offering budget accommodation but it is often worth looking for a last minute booking discount as it is sometimes possible to pick up a room, say in London, for as little as £15 for the night.

KopTalk and Its Many Critics – A Brief History

KopTalk is a Liverpool FC website that was launched by Duncan Oldham and Colin Seaman back in 1999. At the time there was only a handful of LFC forums in existence and the official club site had yet to launch.

Seaman left the site shortly afterwards to pursue a successful career as a web designer, but KopTalk initially proved to be a popular forum, although opinion has always been divided as to whether this was due primarily to the abilities of the people who created the site, or was instead down to the wit, intelligence and knowledge of the site’s early members.

From the outset, KopTalk was a heavily commercialised website that specialised in transfer gossip. This approach owed a huge debt to the infamous Brian Bentley of the Team Talk site, who had pioneered a similar style during the mid-1990s.

Duncan Oldham very quickly launched various paid-for «services» on KopTalk, all of which were based on the promise of having access to «insider» information about what was going on behind the scenes at Liverpool Football Club. Within a year of KopTalk’s launch these included premium-rate telephone information lines, a «deluxe» email service and a «VIP» forum.

As a result, KopTalk has always been the subject of criticism within the broader online LFC fan community. Within a few weeks of the forum’s launch, it was already being mockingly referred to by some people as «Kraptalk». His critics have claimed that Duncan Oldham is motivated by a desire to make money rather than a heartfelt love for the football club and have accused him of fabricating transfer gossip for this reason, although Oldham himself has always refuted such claims.

At the end of 2001, a satirical site called Kraptalk was launched by Liverpool fans with the aim of poking fun at the techniques Duncan Oldham employed to drum up interest in KopTalk.

Over the years, a number of other Liverpool forums have been created as a result of a mass exodus of former KopTalk members who decided to leave the site. These include YNWA, TalkLFC, Est1892 and SixCrazyMinutes.

Early in 2006, the KopTalk Exposed blog was launched by concerned Liverpool fans, who wanted to hold Duncan Oldham’s behaviour up to public scrutiny. It has since amassed more than 1.6 million hits and over 800 articles. The site has always extended an open invitation to Duncan Oldham for him to come onto the blog and defend himself from the various accusations levelled at him, but Oldham has thus far failed to do so.
