Staying Safe at Sporting Events

There is no doubt that as a nation, we have a passion for sport. Whether it’s rugby, football or cricket, weekends in the UK are filled with events and fixtures the length and breadth of the isle. For venues and security firms, they have a lot of hard work to do making sure all those sports fans are kept safe. Experts in crowd behaviour have also had a big say in how such venues are laid out and how the local transport network is set up to ease pressure. If you’re heading off to a game this weekend, be sure to follow these steps to stay safe: Plan your journey Any trip you take should have a certain element of pre-planning. Try to always attend a game with friends or family as there’s always safety in numbers. Plan and book your transport if you’re not driving so everyone knows in […]

You might think that saving up all your holiday for a fortnight in the sun would make you the happiest you could be, but experts disagree with you. Author and economic behaviourist Dan Ariely claims that taking several short breaks will make you happier overall. Image Credit If you’d like to read more about Dan Ariely’s work, you can find him on his website here: The Idea Ariely’s theory is that once you’ve been on holiday for a few days, your enjoyment starts to fade. By taking a mini-break, you’re not giving yourself the chance to get used to being away. It means you can enjoy the maximum pleasure from a break and repeat that a few times over the year in order to top up your joy levels. Short-Break Ideas The ideal short break is somewhere close to home, so you don’t lose too much time in travel. […]

When taken in high doses Kratom gives off an effect similar to weak oral morphine. It can give a sight stimulating feeling or a calm sedated feeling depending on the dosage and strain. These two factors make a big difference in the actual effects that are felt. It is important to note that regardless of the dosage, kratom does not give much of a “high”.

Many couples choose to celebrate their Wedding Anniversaries with special traditional gifts.  From the first year to the seventieth there are traditional materials and items to commemorate each anniversary.  Year one is marked with a gift made from Paper, year two is Cotton, year three Leather and year four Fruit or Flowers. The fifth anniversary is celebrated with an item made from wood.  As the years go by the gifts tend to get more expensive, exclusive and exotic ending up with the seventieth anniversary year being a gift made out of something Platinum. Working backwards now in years we go to the big sixtieth celebration and the gift should be something made with Diamonds.  Sticking with gifts made from precious jewels we get to the fifty-fifth anniversary and Emeralds are the stones to choose. Probably the most celebrated anniversary couples achieve together is the fiftieth and Gold is the precious […]

As I was growing up my parents were obsessed with Masterchef. We would sit down without fail to watch the amateur chefs cook up dishes for the judges. Each week the contestants would work up a sweat over their 4 burner gas oven hoping to make it through another week. Incidentally if you are looking for a similar commercial oven take a look at There were a few other cookery programmes available during my childhood but certainly not as many as are on our screens today. It seems that now we have an abundance of celebrity chefs to choose from when it comes to our culinary television watching preferences. We can choose anything from the traditional information programmes and travel programmes focus on food to the reality style programmes with both amateur and celebrity or professional chefs taking part. Here are just a few of those famous chefs: Jamie […]

Activated charcoal is used to whiten teeth for a long time. Even peasant girls rubbed the activated charcoals from the stove and smeared teeth with this powder. People quickly realized that a burned tree could make a smile brighter and, of course, enjoyed it. Today this method is also very popular. And for this there are several simple reasons: Availability of activated charcoal – it is sold in any pharmacy; Low price, thanks to which they can use everything, as long as they want; Convenient packing and shape. But is it really so good to whiten teeth with activated charcoal, as it is advocated? The fact is that many have a persistent stereotype – folk remedies are harmless since they use natural materials. The lack of chemistry justifies frequent and unsystematic application. In the conditions of never stopping cities, it is incredibly attractive. Moreover, the same chemistry and, in fact, […]

Shirts are one of the only clothing items that can suit almost any social setting, but that doesn’t mean that one size necessarily fits all. There are different types of shirts that are best-suited to different occasions, but having one of the following five styles will definitely form the basis of the perfect capsule wardrobe and make those dressing dramas a thing of the past.

The world of medicine is constantly evolving and improving, and recent research has found that fish skin could be a very effective way to promote wound healing. Image Credit The study involved a double-blind randomized clinical study, which found that wounds treated with an Omega 3 product healed much faster than wounds that were treated with EpiFix. Interestingly, EpiFix is made using human amnion membrane, which many people assume would be the perfect product for healing a wood, but the product made from intact fish skin proved to be much more effective. The Future of Wound Healing Some wounds can take months or even years to heal, and many wounds don’t heal properly. For instance, dermal regeneration often fails in wounds that are very thick, resulting in scar formation that can last for decades. The study with fish skin aimed to help improve dermal regeneration rates, helping full thickness tissue […]

Making your own clothes can be a very satisfying and useful hobby, with browsing patterns one of life’s greatest pleasures for dressmakers. Image Credit ‘Dressmaking patterns’ is a term to cover patterns for all clothes – not just dresses – for adults and children; in the same vein, ‘dressmaking fabrics’ covers a wide range of materials. Patterns are generally graded according to difficulty, especially with the big-name brands, which serves as a great guide. As your experience grows, it will become clearer how to interpret all the lines and shapes. Easy does it As a beginner, it can be easy to gravitate towards patterns marked ‘easy’ and spend your time poring over pretty dressmaking fabrics rather than tackling something a little more challenging; of course, there may be different interpretations of the word ‘easy’!
