How to Start an Online Radio Station in Less Than an Hour

It seems like ancient history now, but two decades ago when the internet was taking shape there was a lot of talk about what it would offer, and how it would become an indispensable tool. With the benefit of hindsight we can now see what those early proponents were talking about, but we can also see where popular use has had a more important impact.

In some ways the internet has in fact become that „indispensable tool“ we heard so much about. It has also become a mass meeting place, a place to escape and live in a pretend world, a place to play games and the medium for availability and discussion about information on any and all topics.

As a 30+ year media veteran I cannot help but notice that the internet has also offered a voice to „common folks“ previously available to large media houses. Online newsletters on a myriad of specialist subjects now reach thousands of subscribers all over the world. Similarly broadcast media have now been opened up. Rather than the huge capital outlay for equipment and staff that used to be needed to start a radio station, indeed if you could even get a license, anyone with a computer and the few dollars necessary to monthly streaming costs can now broadcast globally.

Since the early days when crude automation systems were first introduced into broadcasting, there have been steady and remarkable improvements in the technology. Today relatively sophisticated software is readily available for free that does things those early systems could never dream of doing.

If you have ever thought about dipping your toe into the world of broadcasting then now is the time to do it, and the internet gives you not only all the tools you need but a platform to broadcast on that would have been the envy of any radio station not that many years ago.

Here’s what you will need:

  • An account with a stream host. I use a company called Strem101 because they’re cheap, but there are all kinds of them available and you can choose one that looks good to you.
  • A collection of music „ripped“ (converted) to mp3 files.
  • A current copy of Winamp.
  • A copy of the Shoutcast DSP plugin for Winamp.

How to do it

  1. Arrange a stream hosting account.
  2. Put all your mp3 song files in a folder.
  3. Download and install Winamp.
  4. Download install the Shoutcast DSP for Winamp.
  5. Open Winamp Preferences and click on DSP/Effects
  6. Choose the Shoutcat DSP.
  7. Enter the stream host settings in the Shoutcast DSP plugin.
  8. Use the Winamp to select your folder of music and start it.

There are a few setting that you’ll need to tweak, but there are Readme files to help you through that. You’ll also likely want to set the Winamp preferences to Repeat playing once it has played all the songs in your folder, and select Shuffle to have Winamp automatically shuffle the songs and not just play them in order.

While this method works remarkably well, it is far from the level of sophistication that is available by using a free radio automation system like Zara Radio. These give you the capability to produce and execute a broadcast-style format that can sound as good as any AM or FM radio station.

I wish you luck! Clearly the internet has proven that no matter what your musical taste or style is, there will be someone out there who will at least give your online radio station a try.

3 Secrets On How Male Porn Stars Enlarge Their Penis

Have you ever wondered how male porn stars become so large, as far as penis size goes?

Maybe you just shrugged it off and thought „good genetics“ were to blame. But the more you watch adult film, the more you notice how unlikely it is that so many of these men just happen to be blessed with superior penis size genetics.

The truth is, there are a few tricks to the trade as far as penis enlargement goes. There are some „secrets“ as to why so many of these guys are well above average.

Here are 3 secrets on how male porn stars enlarge their penis:

  1. Behind the Scenes. I was privy to some behind the scene footage of male adult film performers in the moments leading up to being in front of the camera. And what I saw was both unusual, and sort of shocking as far as how easy it was to get a bigger penis fast. First of all, I noticed that many of these guys did not seem that „huge“ to begin with in the flaccid state (this is the normal, non-erect state of the penis). They seemed fairly average. But then they began doing something. They would grab their penis just before the head (and remember this is off camera, just moments before they were to perform on camera) and they would begin „tugging“ on their penis. Basically they would stretch out their penis and hold it for a few seconds, release and repeat. Each guy seemed to have his own method as far as how long he would tug, or stretch it out. And some guys would employ a very slow massaging tug with each hand, starting at the base and holding fully extended at the head. But essentially, the results were the same. The guys would appear noticeably larger right before the camera would turn on. It really was that noticeable. Some guys went from a visibly average size, to a seemingly larger than average size. So essentially, these guys were simply doing repeated tugs or stretches, which enlongated the flacid penis, making it appear much bigger. I would say this tugging process really did not take but a few minutes, though I would also say that these guys are experienced and likely have their tugging technique down to a science where they can achieve greater penis size in very little time.
  2. The Big Visual Trick. This is something many guys may have heard about, but this visual trick really needs to be stressed. It’s about shaving the pubic hair. Tell me the last time you’ve seen a male porn performer with full growth pubic hair. Of course, you haven’t. Now tell me the last time you’ve seen a male performer with ANY pubic hair. Maybe occasionally, but not very often. This is because that they know very well how any amount of pubic hair can visually take away from large size appearance. In fact most male performers are so aware of this that they don’t even mess around. They will shave it all off. Now in reality, this really isn’t necessary. You can visually achieve larger size by simply trimming your pubic hair, mainly around the base of your penis.
  3. The Jelq Exercise. If there is one technique that male adult film performers employ for attempts at permanent penis size increase, it is the jelq exercise. Jelqing, as it is referred to often, is an exercise which consists of stroking the penis repeatedly while it is in the semi erect, lubricated state. These are slow and controlled strokes, done by alternating hands, for a certain number of sets and reps, usually 4-5 times a week. What this does is increase size both in length and girth. And unlike tugging techniques which were mentioned before, these gains are permanent. The gains are generally most noticeable when fully erect, which of course is perfect for male performers since that tends to be the state they are mostly in while on camera. The reason jelqing is so popular over other manual girth or lengthening exercises (such as pumps or extenders) is the safety factor. No performer can risk injury or even slight visual damage that other methods are sometimes known for. The jelq exercise only employs the hands and is considered the safest technique available for permanent penis size increase.

My Celebrity Encounters: Kenny Rogers And The First Edition

In the summer of 1968, my aunt came from Connecticut to visit my family in southern California. During the two weeks she was with us, everyday was some kind of wonderful adventure. We went to the beach several times; we went to the Los Angeles Zoo. We visited all kinds of museums and the La Brea Tar Pits. Disneyland, Universal Studios, and Knott’s Berry Farm were also on the activity agenda.

While we were at Knott’s, the grownups were talking about a concert that was happening at the park that day. I was eleven years old, and had spent my life (so far) in a musical household. Most of my family were musically talented people and everybody in our house loved music. There was a record player or radio going twenty-four hours a day.

Although I loved music, I had never seen a live performance. Kenny Rogers and The First Edition was the name of the band performing, and I had never heard of them. At the time, I was strictly a fan of country artists like Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline, so I wasn’t very enthusiastic about trading the thrills of an amusement park for some „unknown“band. My mind was about to be blown…

As we walked into the concert venue, my eyes were immediately attracted to the big, beautiful, sparkling set of drums. Under the bright stage lights, it was an amazing sight. The row of amplifiers on either side of the drums all had lights glowing on them, and there were several beautiful guitars on stage. I had grown up surrounded by musical instruments, but to see them onstage under the lights was indescribable.

We sat in the large theater for about thirty minutes, when all of a sudden the lights went out. I could see silhouettes moving around in the dark onstage and this got my heart pumping. All of a sudden the lights came on and the band was playing. It was like a religious experience; I don’t think I blinked my eyes for the entire show for fear of missing something. The sound inside the hall was something I had never experienced, either. It sounded nothing like my records at home. It was larger than life. I was enthralled by every song, and the finale was a cover of The Beach Boys song „Good Vibrations“.

This was a song I had heard many times, and when they began playing, it sounded amazing. There were flashing lights, smoke, and Rock and Roll. At the end of the show, I was in a trance; I couldn’t move. I sat there staring at the stage, and my family was getting impatient. Mom said „we’re going outside to get some air and a drink; we’ll meet up in a few minutes“. As I sat there transfixed on the spectacle before me, to my amazement, some of the band members came out into the audience area.

I was one of only a few people lingering inside, and a guy with long hair and a beard and a woman (who I recognized as the lead singers) came up to me. They introduced themselves and said „how did you like the show?“ The only thing I could get out of my mouth was „I want drums“. They laughed and said drums took a lot of practice and maybe I should start out with a guitar… I just nodded. My mom came back in looking for me and was introduced to the band. She said she was their newest, and biggest fan.

All the way home, I begged and pleaded with my dad for drums, but to no avail. This went on for several weeks until my mom and sister got tired of listening to me, and went out and bought me an electric guitar and amplifier. I have been a professional musician for most of my life, and if not for Kenny Rogers and The First Edition, I may have chosen a different path in life.

A Camp Rock Birthday Cake to Make Your Party Rock!

The perfect Camp Rock birthday cake is the perfect addition to Camp Rock party ideas. There are so many different cakes out there you can’t decide which one to buy. Or have you made the decision to create you own Camp Rock cake? Baking and trying to make your cake unique is a big challenge. So make sure your child’s birthday really rocks with some of these Camp Rock birthday cake ideas.

Your first option is to buy a ready made, ready decorated cake. I have seen a few different ones in my local supermarket, featuring either the Camp Rock cast or the Camp Rock logo. You could also go to a local bakery or cake specialist and have one made for you. This could be one of their designs or even a design you choose.

Also if you go to your local supermarket or bakery most of them do a service where they will print a photo or a picture you have on top on a plain cake. Do keep in mind, however, that due to copyright laws most will not print out any pictures you have cut out of magazines etc. But you can take a photo of your child singing in full singing gear or get the kids to design their own logo or picture.

If you want to make a Camp Rock birthday cake you have two options. Option one is to make the entire cake from scratch yourself or option two is to buy a plain sponge and decorate in rockin‘ Camp Rock style.

Start out with the actual sponge. You need to decide what shape sponge you are going to have. You can either bake the different shaped sponges in shaped cake tins or purchase ready made sponge and cut into the shapes you require. Cake shapes you could have are:

  • Round – Any size.
  • Rectangle – Small or large.
  • Square – Any size.
  • Star – Cut out of a large square.
  • Guitar – Made from three rectangle shaped sponges. One for the arm of the guitar then two together and cut into the shape of the base of the guitar.
  • Musical Note – Made from three rectangle shapes forming a bottomless square for the arms of the note then two round sponges for each note.
  • Microphone – You will need a rectangle and round sponge to form this shape.
  • Tent Cake – Made with three square shaped sponges one for the base then two standing on each end leaning against each other to form a tent. Just cut a triangular piece to use for the back of the tent.
  • Camp Rock Logo – Using a large picture of the Camp Rock logo cut the sponge into the same shape.

Once you have your basic shape it’s time to decorate. Here are some Camp Rock birthday cake ideas for decorating:

  • Decorate with Camp Rock cake toppers.
  • Create a campsite scene on a plain cake (tent, camp fire etc.).
  • Draw on the Camp Rock logo with coloured icing and icing pens.
  • Decorate a guitar or microphone with edible icing and sweets to give a realistic look e.g. strawberry laces for guitar strings.
  • Put a photo of the birthday girl in the centre of a star shaped cake.
  • Write, with icing pens, ‚We Rock‘ or ‚We’re Going To Camp Rock‘.

Trundle Bed Plans – Building Your Own Extra Bed for Guests

If you are looking for a better way to find sleeping space for guests or your kid’s sleepover friends, then using trundle bed plans for your next bed building project is the way to go. Trundle beds are known to be an inventive way to make your guests feel at home when they come to stay. This bed works well because it does not take up unnecessary space and is easy to be made up and use only when needed.

In most cases, a trundle bed is stored on rollers underneath another bed.  These are usually single twin beds, but can be used with full or double size as well.  It can easily slide out from underneath when needed, and made up with bedding.  The trundle mattress is about 4 inches higher than the average mattress but is secured by a wooden frame, which is attached to the rollers under the original bed.

Some trundle mattresses even pop-up to be the same height as the original one. This type works with springs so it pops up next to the original bed.  Another pop-up type of trundle includes bendable legs to elevate the bed from the ground, to the same height as the original bed. This bed plan is specifically useful when children have sleepovers with their friends.

Some of these beds are easy to assemble and come with Do It Yourself (DIY) kits, or even readily assembled for instant use.  Or with the right quality plans, you can add a trundle underneath an existing bed.  These trundle bed plans come with diagrams, instructions and materials list.

When using a trundle bed it must be used with caution as it is easy to get fingers trapped in the pop up frame which could lead to injury.  Another important measure that could be taken to make your guests feel more at home is to upgrade from the standard mattress that sometimes comes with a premade trundle bed.  When replacing the mattress, take correct measurements to ensure the correct size mattress is purchased. 

If one is considering purchasing or using a trundle bed plan for accommodating guests, it is definitely more efficient and comfortable than just having a mattress on the floor, and will make your guests feel more comfortable.  It is also useful for making space in a small room, only pulling the trundle bed out when it is needed.  Using trundle bed plans for your next building project is not as common as bunk beds, for example, but this bed type has been around for years and still remains a popular bed plan for overnight guests.

Celebrity Ghost Stories – John Lennon

The ghost of murdered Beatle John Lennon has been seen on a number of occasions by various people close to him, including former band mate Paul McCartney. Paul claims that when he, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr sang Lennon’s song, „Free As A Bird“ in 1995, John’s presence was actually there in the studio.

„There were a lot of strange goings-on in the studio – noises that shouldn’t have been there and equipment doing all manner of weird things,“ McCartney said. „There was just an overall feeling that John was around.“

In another paranormal experience, McCartney said that when he and the two other „Beatles“ had a photo shoot for the album, a white peacock came wandering over from a nearby farm. At the very last minute, the beautiful bird made its presence known, and McCartney received the strong feeling that it was the spirit of John Lennon hovering around them as they completed the recording.

McCartney said to the other two ex-Beatles: „That’s John. Spooky, eh? It was like John was hanging around. We felt that all through the recording.“

When Paul McCartney listened to the single’s B-side, he believed that John was making his presence known there, too.

McCartney said, „We put one of those spoof backwards recordings on the end of the single for a laugh, to give all those Beatles nuts something to do. I think it was the line of a George Formby song. Then we were listening to the finished single in the studio one night, and it gets to the end, and it goes, ‚zzzwrk nggggwaaahhh jooohn lennnnnon qwwwrk.‘ I swear to God.“

Paul said of he, George, and Ringo: „We were like, ‚It’s John. He likes it!“

Though this ghost story comes from someone who never knew Lennon personally, this is quite an eerie one to read.

John Lennon was gunned down by crazed fan Mark Chapman on December 8, 1980 in front of the Dakota, a New York apartment. Joey Harrow, a musician who lives near the Dakota, experienced a ghostly sighting of John in 1983. Harrow claimed he saw John’s ghost at the Dakota front doorway, where he’d been shot three years before. Harrow claimed that the Lennon apparition was surrounded by an „eerie light.“

When Joey Harrow witnessed the sighting, so did the writer, Amanda Moores. She was present at the time Lennon’s ghost was sighted. Amanda said that she wanted to approach the figure of Lennon and talk to him, but was dissuaded from doing so by the rather serious expression on the apparition’s face that seemed to say, „No, don’t come near me.“

Liam Gallagher, of the pop group Oasis, claimed he was once visited by the spirit of John Lennon. He didn’t know Lennon in real life, but held great admiration for the Beatle. When Liam stayed at friend’s house years ago in Manchester, England, he felt the strong presence of his hero.

The singer said, „I was in Manchester at a mate’s house having a sleep. I remember getting up and feeling really weird. I turned round and there I was, lying on the bed, and I sort of fell back into my body. There was a presence there and it was him, Lennon.“

The psychic Shawn Robbins said she saw John’s ghost in the Dakota building, and Yoko Ono herself was reported to have seen John sitting at his white piano. He turned to her and said, „Don’t be afraid. I am still with you.“

According to several Spiritualists, John’s spirit lingered on Earth for a short time before a group of spirit Guides helped him to adjust to the ‚other‘ world. A person who won’t ‚let go‘ after they are dead becomes a ghost who haunts the area of the tragedy. The Guides convinced him to join them in the spirit world and various mediums began receiving messages from him.

John’s ex-wife, Cynthia, found a dead jackdaw wrapped in old newspapers dated 1956 behind the fireplace of her home in Cumbria. She told journalist Annette Witheridge: „John told Julian that if there was life after death, he would prove it by sending a feather as a sign. When Julian saw the jackdaw, he was really shaken. It’s as if John is trying to get in touch with us.“

The Strange Case Of The Sombrero Galaxy

Myriad sparkling stars light up the billions of galaxies that dwell in the observable Universe. The observable, or visible, Universe is that relatively small domain of the unimaginably vast Cosmos that we are able to observe. The light traveling to us from more distant regions has not had enough time to reach us since the Big Bang. This is because of the expansion of Space, and the universal speed limit set by light. No known signal can travel faster than light in a vacuum, although Space itself can, and so the very secret of our existence may reside in regions of Spacetime that are far beyond the horizon of our visibility. The galaxies of the Cosmos are far away and mysterious, and the Sombrero Galaxy (Messier 104) stands out in the crowd as one of the most bewitching and bewildering of its starlit kind. In February 2020, a team of astronomers announced that evidence derived from the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) indicates that the Sombrero’s many weird and unexplained attributes are the result of major galaxy mergers–even though its smooth disk displays no signs of a recent catastrophic disruption. However, the Sombrero’s disk may hide the secret of a turbulent past.

The Sombrero has long been a seductively tantalizing object because it seems to travel to the beat of a different drum than other known galaxies. It displays a mystifying mix of shapes found in disk-shaped spiral galaxies (like our own Milky Way), as well as football-shaped elliptical galaxies. The tantalizing mystery of how it acquired its unusual structure becomes ever more bewitching and bewildering with the new evidence from the HST.

The galaxy’s faint halo provides some tattle-tale clues. It is splattered with innumerable stars that are well-endowed with heavier atomic elements–called metals by astronomers. This is because they are later-generation stars. In the terminology astronomers use, a metal is any atomic element heavier than hydrogen and helium, and so the same term has a different meaning for astronomers than it does for chemists. The Big Bang produced only hydrogen, helium, and traces of lithium–but the stars created all the rest. The first generation of stars to dance in the Cosmos were the first to cook up the heavier atomic elements in their nuclear-fusing hearts–and then they sent them screaming into Space when they went supernova. The newly-forged metals were eventually incorporated into later generations of stars. The first stars (Population III) were born depleted of heavy metals, because no stars existed before them to cook them up. The second generation of stars (Population II) were almost, but not quite, depleted of metals, because they were „polluted“ with the batch produced in the searing-hot hearts of the first stars. The youngest generation of stars (Population I)–of which our Sun is a member–contain the largest quantity of metals, having received these elements from previous generations of stars.

For this reason, stars with an abundance of heavy metals are usually seen only in a galaxy’s disk. The Sombrero’s metal-rich stars must have been hurled into its halo, as the result of ancient mergers with mature galaxies, that were heavily endowed with metals. The Sombrero galaxy, in its current „adulthood“, is more settled than it was in its „youth“. It is also isolated. This means that there is nothing else dwelling nearby for it to „eat“. This discovery provides a new twist on the way galaxies form in our Cosmos.

„The Sombrero has always been a bit of a weird galaxy, which is what makes it so interesting. Hubble’s metallicity measurements (i.e.: the abundance of heavy elements in the stars) are another indication that the Sombrero has a lot to teach us about galaxy assembly and evolution,“ commented Dr. Paul Goudfrooij in a February 20, 2020 Hubblesite Press Release. Dr. Goudfrooij is of the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) in Baltimore, Maryland.

Hubble’s observations of the Sombrero’s halo are turning our accepted understanding of galaxy makeup and metallicity on its head,“ added co-investigator Dr. Roger Cohen, who is also of the STScI.

HST’s sensitivity was able to resolve tens of thousands of individual stars inhabiting the Sombrero’s vast, extended halo. The halo is the region situated beyond a galaxy’s central portion, that is typically composed of older stars. These recent observations of the Sombrero are intriguing because they show only a small percentage of older, metal-poor stars in the halo, plus the abundance of metal-rich stars in its disk and central bulge. Therefore, ancient, turbulent galaxy collisions and major mergers provide a possible explanation.

Strange And Beautiful

The Sombrero has captivated skywatchers for years because of its strange structure and great beauty. However, thanks to HSTs recent observations, astronomers are now seeing the Sombrero in a new light. The galaxy displays an extended halo brimming with metal-rich stars with barely any evidence of the predicted metal-poor stars observed in the halos of other galaxies. Astronomers, pouring over the data from the HST, have turned to sophisticated computer simulations to find a solution to this perplexing puzzle that poses a challenge to conventional galaxy-formation theory. Those results indicate the surprising possibility that major mergers occurred in this weird galaxy’s past, even though the Sombrero’s elegant and lovely structure shows no evidence of recent disruption. The results of these new findings are published in the Astrophysical Journal.

„The absence of metal-poor stars was a big surprise, and the abundance of metal-rich stars only added to the mystery,“ Dr. Goudfrooij noted in the February 20, 2020 Hubblesite Press Release.

The Sombrero got its name because it resembles the broad rim and high-topped Mexican hat with this name–and, observed from Earth, it is seen almost edge-on. This galaxy is also very bright, and it is easily observed with small telescopes. Because of its brightness, it is just a little beyond the limit of the unaided human eye. The strange and beautiful galaxy resides at the southern edge of the heavily populated Virgo Cluster, and it is one of the most massive objects in that group of galaxies. Indeed, its mass is equivalent to 800 billion Suns. The Sombrero is 50,000 light-years across and is situated 28 million light-years from Earth.

The Sombrero also hosts a heavy population of globular clusters, which are tightly bound spherical collections of stars. It is estimated that this galaxy is orbited by nearly 2,000 globulars–10 times as many as orbit our own barred-spiral Milky Way Galaxy. However, the ages of the clusters are similar to the ages of those circling our Galaxy, ranging from 10 to 13 billion years old.

A smaller disk is embedded within the Sombrero’s bright core, and it is tilted relative to the large disk. X-ray emission indicates that material is swirling down into the galaxy’s compact core, where a supermassive black hole resides in sinister secret, waiting for its dinner to come tumbling down into its voracious maw. This supermassive heart of darkness weighs in at 1 billion times our Sun’s mass. In contrast, our Milky Way’s resident supermassive black hole weighs „only“ 4 million times solar mass.

In the 19th century, some astronomers suggested that the Sombrero was just an edge-on disk of brightly shining luminous gas encircling a youthful star–which is the way our own Solar System evolved. However, in 1912, the American astronomer V.M. Slipher (1875-1969) found that the strange object appeared to be flying away from Earth at 700 miles per second. That great velocity provided some of the earliest clues that the Sombrero was really another galaxy, and that the Universe was expanding in all directions.

How Bizarre!

Astronomers expect to find earlier generations of stars, with very small quantities of metals, in a galaxy’s halo–as compared to the more densely populated regions within a galaxy’s main disk. Heavier atomic elements are forged by way of the process of stellar nucleosynthesis, whereby increasingly heavier and heavier atomic elements are created out of lighter ones in a star’s searing-hot core. The longer a galaxy has hosted stars that create heavy metals, the more metal-rich its gas becomes–and the higher the metallictity of the stars that are born „polluted“ from that gas. These youthful, high-metallicity stars are usually seen in the main disk of a galaxy, because this is where there is a heavier stellar population.

However, in the mysterious case of the Sombrero, things get complicated because of the presence of a large number of globular clusters containing elderly, metal-poor stars. Such metal-poor, elderly stars are normally expected to travel out of their host clusters and become part of the stellar halo. However, that process failed to work in the Sombrero galaxy. The team of HST astronomers compared their results with recent computer simulations in order to see what could be the origin of such a numerous population of metal-rich stars in this bizarre galaxy’s halo.

Their results were surprising, because they showed that the currently well-ordered, peaceful Sombrero had suffered violent accretion, or major merger events, billions of years ago. In contrast, our Milky Way is thought to have eaten many small satellite galaxies in „minor“ accretions over the passage of billions of years. A major accretion event, however, is very different because it involves the merger of two or more similarly massive galaxies that are both well-endowed with higher-metallicity, later-generation stars.

The satellite galaxies only contained low-metallicity stars that were composed primarily of hydrogen and helium–the two lightest atomic elements–born in the Big Bang birth of the Universe almost 14 billion years ago (Big Bang nucleosynthesis). The heavier elements had to be manufactured in the searing-hot interiors of the stars through stellar nucleosynthesis and ultimately incorporated into later stellar generations. This process was somewhat inefficient in the case of small dwarf galaxies such as those circling our own Milky Way–while being considerably more effective in larger, more well-endowed galaxies, such as our own.

The new results for the Sombrero galaxy are surprising because its smooth, unperturbed disk displays no signs of disruption. By comparison, many interacting galaxies, such as the iconic Antennae galaxies, get their name from the distorted appearance of their spiral arms that result from the tidal forces of past violent interactions. Mergers of similarly massive galaxies usually coalesce into single large, smooth elliptical galaxies with extended halos–a process that takes billions of years. However, the Sombrero has always traveled to the beat of a different drum, and it never quite fit into the traditional definition of either a spiral or an elliptical galaxy. Like human nonconformists, it does what it will. It is a galactic mixture of the two.

Will You Be the Rock That Redirects the Course of the River?

„Will you be the rock that redirects the course of the river?“ is a quote that I came across made by Claire Nuer. The reason I think this resounded with me is because I was also listening to the Discovery Series this week and one of the Luminaries was discussing the power of water. We might take a big bat and hit water with such force but to no avail and a sore arm is probably the only outcome that would result. The water is just disturbed temporarily and goes back to flowing in its direction of choice without acknowledging you. The power of the water is tremendous individually. The real strength of water is that we may able to harness the power but never control it.

If we were able to harness the power that we have within us we would be more phenomenal. The secret to our success lies deep down inside of us dormant. The wonderful thing about something being dormant is that it has the potential to come alive. One of best way to access it is through self empowerment and personal development. The limiting beliefs that we have will not go away without learning new skills and knowledge. The belief system that we live our daily live by are from years of negative conditioning. We must systematically reach inside ourselves and reverse this state of being. It is never too late to make that transformation. The most influential people in the World always credit personal development as a reason for his or her success. We can choose to be the rock that redirects the direction of our lives or continue to watch the water return to its original state as if our brief interference of its path did not phase it.

The Single Best Grip Exercise For Rock Climbing!

One of the best overall grip exercises for rock climbing is the kettlebell farmer’s walk. If you have never attempted this particular exercise then I am here to tell you that you are missing out. By now you may be familiar with the ancient kettlebell and understand this is one hell of a strength and conditioning device and because of that fact alone this is why you need it for your rock climbing strength training program!

Best Grip Exercise For Rock Climbing!

Grip exercises for rock climbing are a necessity whether you are looking at it as a safety issue or a competitive one. Either way you need a smart and highly effective workout for rock climbing if you expect to do well at this particular sport. If you have seen the ancient kettlebell by now then you know that it resembles a cannonball with a handle attached to it. Because of this unique design you will find that this particular device is fairly difficult and challenging to hold irregardless of how you hold it. This is because it is always pulling away from your center of gravity. This is why kettlebell training is good for your grip strength.

To kick this up a notch this is why I am introducing to you the kettlebell farmer’s walk. For this particular drill you will want the availability of a pair of heavy kettlebells. Now how heavy is up to you, but you will want to struggle gripping both bells at the same time when you pick them up. The other thing you need is a flat straight walking space. From here you are simply going to place the bells at one end of this walking lane and pick them both up off of the ground in order to walk to the other side of the walking lane. This heavy resisted walk is tremendous for helping you to develop a tremendous grip strength while taking your rock climbing strength exercises to the next level. You can’t go wrong with your climbing with kettlebell farmer’s walks.

If you haven’t already started to implement this particular hard hitting kettlebell grip strength drill into your climbing workouts then you are putting yourself at risk and holding yourself back. Take the time to learn more grip strength drills like this one by accessing more of my articles on the subject for free. Remember that most anyone can train hard, but only the best train smart!
