The benefits of manicure are numerable, whether one wants to improve the look of the fingernails or want to fix the damaged nails or cuticles. Manicure can also prevent many other problems from arising in the future, such as hang-nails, fragile fingernails and wrinkles in the hands and cuticles.
Every manicure giver would have a personal and different style of giving a manicure. But there are many common manicure tools that most of the nail technicians use. These common tools include the nail clippers, brushes, buffers, cuticle pushers and clippers along with a bowl of water to soak the hands. They also have such other things as a soap, cuticle cream or oil, hand lotion, nail polish remover, and of course the nail polish itself along with the towels and sanitizer.
In French manicure a light colored polish is applied on the whole nail and then over it a white polish is applied on the tips. The paraffin manicure has the advantage then because the hands are soaked in the paraffin wax, they help make the hands very soft. Some of the other popular manicures are a hot stone, spa manicure and a luxury manicure. These types of manicures are good for those people who have a little more time to sit and relax. This is actually a real treat for them.
The word 'manicure' has come from two words which are 'manus' and 'cura', which means 'hand' and 'care'. The very basic manicure routine would include shaping of the fingernails, treating the cuticles, moisturizing the hands and polishing the nails. Besides these, there are many other forms of manicure as well, and each has its own advantage.

Twinkling is most often noticeable in frosty winter nights with rising air currents from the ground. Lower stars are worst effected as they shine through a thicker wedge of the Earths atmosphere, usually the bright stars overhead twinkle much less. Because stars are so far away they appear as pinpoints making them susceptible to twinkling, however the planets which although at first glance appear star-like are in fact tiny discs (often resolvable even with binoculars) and most often shine with a steady light even when all the true stars around them are twinkling like mad! From British latitudes the most famous 'twinkler' is the winter star Sirius it appears as the brightest star in the entire sky it doesn’t rise far above the southern horizon from here so it not only twinkles but appears to flicker violently through blues, reds white and even greens ,a marvelous sight on a frosty winters evening.
Stars twinkle because we see them from the bottom of a sea of air. Little cells of air, which are about ten centimeters across and located many kilometers high, move across our vision as we watch the sky. These small bundles of air act like little lenses, bending light as it passes through them. This bending, called refraction, is familiar to anyone who drives on a hot day: hot air just above the road surface bends light more than the cooler air slightly above it. That's why you can sometimes see that shimmery veil of what looks like water on the road; it's really the air bending the light above it. Sometimes you can even see cars reflected in the road!
Anyway, these parcels of air up high in the atmosphere travel to and fro, bending the light from a star in more or less random directions. Stars are big, but they are so far away that they appear to be very small, much smaller to our eyes than each of these air bundles. So when the light gets bent, the apparent movement of the star is larger than the size of the star in the sky, and we see the star shifting around. Our eye can't really detect that motion, because it's too small. What we see is the light from the star flickering. That's why stars twinkle!
Stars start as huge regions of gas, mostly hydrogen. This gas will start to contract, and it heats up. As it contracts, its temperature rises. When the heat gets high enough, it causes the individual hydrogen atoms to collide and combine into helium with the release of energy.
It’s called fusion, because it fuses smaller nuclei into bigger ones. It releases enormous energy. The stellar gas, now in a spherical shape, is contracted further by gravity while exploding by fusion. Together, a balance is reached and a star is born. The energy released in the star’s center makes its way to the surface, where it is radiated into space as light, heat x-rays, ultraviolet light and radio waves.
Eventually, a star will use up all of its available small atoms, and the fusion energy is no longer available. In some stars, the further collapse triggers fusion of helium into carbon, or carbon into even heavier elements. Finally, all the elements that can provide energy are exhausted, and the star starts its final collapse.

Tips and tricks for getting ready for school faster!
Make your hair look great in no time!
Perfect teen hairstyles, advice on hair care and hair styling!
Entering the school with a boring look is something that no one likes. Each one of you would like to enter the classroom with a perfect hairstyle gracing your face and enhancing the school attire. Let's move on to know some ways to do your hair for school. Pick the one that looks good on you.
Sleek Chignon is a type of tie up hairstyle that works well for hot summers. Start by combing your hair. Now gather it at nape and tie into a simple low ponytail using a hair colored elastic rubber band. Now slightly twist the free hair and then twist it around the elastic. This will form a loose bun. Now do your hair using bobby pins, to secure the bun, especially secure the ends of this length of hair into the bun.
Ponytails are definitely amongst the cute hairstyles for school. Be it a single pony or two ponytails, these are the best ways to do your hair. Ponytail gives you that perfect school girl look and you can add the style element with side-swept bangs. If you have straight hair, go for center bangs. Half ponytail is another great idea. If you want to don a modish look, get a rubber band and tie hair into a high pony.
Twisting your hair in various ways, you can have an easy hairstyle for school. Take strands from front side and twist them and pin backwards using alligator clips. You can part in various ways to form cute hairstyles. Curling your hair and leaving them free with side or center part or gracing them with cute headbands is a great idea.
Mornings can be stressful if you are short on time, whether you overslept or are moving slower than usual. Being prepared and having a routine are both very effective means to ensure you get everything done quickly, so you don't miss your ride to school or walk into class late.
Getting as much as possible ready the night before is a good way to make your mornings move quickly. If you have 10 minutes of less to get ready to leave, being prepared can make this less stressful. Make your lunch, lay out your clothes, get your homework and textbooks in your backpack by the front door and decide what to do with your hair and makeup before you go to bed. Shower and wash your hair at night, which cuts down on time getting clean and drying your hair before you head out. Choose something fast to eat, such as a breakfast bar and an apple, which you can eat on the go, or while you get ready to leave.
Many girls are slowed down with makeup and hair routines, which are complicated and time-consuming. Try a minimized routine, which allows you to look your best when time is tight. ‘Girl's Life’ magazine recommends mascara, eyeliner and blemish coverup -- a combination that makes your skin look good and opens up your eyes. A ponytail or braid is fast and easy, and brings together your look. Add a ribbon or headband for a touch of glamour, which won't take a lot of time. If you ride the bus or your parents drop you off at school, apply makeup in the car if you prefer to wear more than time allows you to apply at home.
In parkour people run on foot, move quadrupedally, jump, climb, and use other methods of catching yourself, grabbing hold of things, and hanging from things, rolling and balancing!

Parkour (abbreviated PK) is a physical discipline which focuses on efficient movement around obstacles. Developed in France by David Belle, the main purpose of the discipline is to teach participants how to move through their environment by vaulting, rolling, running, climbing, and jumping. Parkour practitioners are known as ‘traceurs’.
Parkour's modern history began in the 1920s, though similar movements can be found in the Eastern martial arts ninjutsu and qing gong. Georges Hébert began teaching the fundamental movements related to parkour during this time period, and eventually the training became the standard for the French military. David and Raymond Belle would expand on Hébert's work, and David would eventually find the Yamakasi group, the first group dedicated to parkour.
Along with The Bourne Ultimatum, Casino Royale is credited with starting a new wave of parkour-inspired stunts in Western film and television. Parkour is featured prominently in the film Breaking and Entering, in which two of the characters employ parkour techniques to burgle an office in Kings Cross, London. Parkour is featured in the film Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. David Belle was hired as parkour choreographer for the film and appears in the DVD and Blu-ray featurettes. Aamir Khan learned parkour techniques for his role in the 2011 movie Dhoom 3.
Jump London is a documentary which explains some of the background to parkour and culminated with Sébastien Foucan, Johann Vigroux, and Jérôme Ben Aoues demonstrating their parkour skills. Jump London was followed by Jump Britain, which featured Foucan and Ben Aoeus. My Playground, a documentary film by Kaspar Astrup Schröder, explores the way parkour and free running are changing the perception of urban space and how the spaces and buildings they are moving on are changing them. The Australian TV program 60 Minutes broadcast a segment about parkour on September 16, 2007, which featured Foucan and Stephane Vigroux.
The webcomic Schlock Mercenary makes frequent reference to ‘Parkata Urbatsu’ which is said to have grown ‘out of the ancient disciplines of parkour, urbobatics, and youtubing. It is a martial art that focuses on both pursuit and escape in developed environments, with an eye towards the aesthetic.’
A number of video games include parkour as major gameplay elements.

Pro mountain bikers giving tips for riding a mountain bike over rough terrain!
Learn how to perform all types of maneuvers on a mountain bike-from the easiest ones to the ones that are more difficult and dangerous!
Find out everything about all types of mountain biking: cross country (XC), trail riding, all mountain, downhill, free riding, dirt jumping and trials!
Tips for choosing the right equipment, protective gear and accessories: the best mountain bikes, gloves, glasses, shoes, pumps, bike tools, helmets, body armors and pads and first aid kits!
Mountain biking is a sport which consists of riding bicycles off-road, often over rough terrain, using specially adapted mountain bikes. Mountain bikes share similarities with other bikes, but incorporate features designed to enhance durability and performance in rough terrain.
Mountain biking can generally be broken down into multiple categories: cross country (XC), trail riding, all mountain, downhill, freeride, dirt jumping and trials. The vast majority of mountain biking falls into the recreational XC, and Trail Riding categories.
This individual sport requires endurance, core strength and balance, bike handling skills, and self-reliance. XC type mountain biking generally requires a different range of skills and a higher level of fitness than other types of mountain biking. Advanced riders pursue steep technical descents and, in the case of freeriding, downhilling, and dirt jumping, aerial maneuvers off of specially constructed jumps and ramps.
Mountain biking can be performed almost anywhere from a back yard to a gravel road, but the majority of mountain bikers ride off-road trails, whether country back roads, fire roads, or singletrack (narrow trails that wind through forests, mountains, deserts, or fields). There are aspects of mountain biking that are more similar to trail running than regular bicycling. Because riders are often far from civilization, there is a strong ethic of self-reliance in the sport. Riders learn to repair their broken bikes or flat tires to avoid being stranded miles from help. Many riders will carry a backpack, including a water bladder, containing all the essential tools and equipment for trailside repairs, and many riders also carry emergency supplies in the case of injury miles from outside help. Club rides and other forms of group rides are common, especially on longer treks. A combination sport named mountain bike orienteering adds the skill of map navigation to mountain biking.
Mountain bikes differ from other bikes primarily in that they incorporate features aimed at increasing durability and improving performance in rough terrain. Flat or upwardly-rising handlebar that allows a more upright riding position, giving the rider more control. They have a smaller, reinforced frame, usually made of wide tubing. Tires usually have a pronounced lugged tread, and are mounted on rims which are stronger than those used on most non-mountain bicycles. Compared to other bikes, mountain bikes also tend to more frequently use disc brakes. They also tend to have lower ratio gears to facilitate climbing steep hills and traversing obstacles. Pedals vary from simple platform pedals, where the rider simply places the shoes on top of the pedals, to clipless, where the rider uses a specially equipped shoe with a sole that engages mechanically into the pedal. Pedals with toe cages (clips) are rarely used anymore as they take longer to get out of than clipless or platform if one takes a fall on the rough terrain.

Video tutorials on creating hairstyles for long, medium and short hair!
Learn how to make your hair always look phenomenal, no matter whether it’s curly or straight!
Messy buns, casual updos, loose braids and other beautiful hairstyles!
By learning a few (easy!) new styles and tricks, you can keep your strands healthy, swear off frizz and flatness, and make your hair look its best - every day. There’s bound to be an option for you among the cuts that follow, whether your hair is short, curly, or long, and no matter if you have 2 minutes, 5 minutes, or 20 minutes to devote to styling it.
A great short haircut is wash and go. It’s also easy to care for and surprisingly versatile. Use a gentle shampoo as needed (short hairstyles can handle daily washing, especially if you have an oily scalp). Follow up with a light conditioner - anything too moisturizing will flatten hair. A few days a week, spritz on a light leave-in conditioner and let hair air-dry to keep it healthy. Limit heat styling to two or three times a week, and keep sessions brief.
Getting a polished, pulled-together look is quicker with short hair than with any other length - it requires just mousse and a comb. Create the illusion of an updo simply by adding a hair accessory. When time is on your side, a little work with a flat iron can transform your cut into something fun yet sophisticated.
It’s smart to work with your natural texture most days; save straightening for special occasions. Curly hair usually looks its best when cut to a medium length - not too short, not too long. To keep your curls shiny and healthy, shampoo less. Choose a formula tailored to your scalp, not your hair, and apply to your scalp only. Let the suds rinse down the rest of your hair, which will get it clean but won’t dry it out. Condition every time you shower. Most important: Keep your hands off your hair as it dries. Too much touching can exacerbate frizz and distort the shape of natural waves.
A swept-up style gets your hair off your face and neck in a snap, and the look spotlights your curls instead of flattening them out. Straightening your hair requires some work, but if it’s done right, the look can last for at least three days. The key: Go light with the styling products.
Long hair offers the most styling choices, and it is low-maintenance (you can go a few months between trims). But keeping your hair evenly moisturized is a key. Avoid over-shampooing, which may lead to dry, damaged ends; two to three times a week is enough. Use a rich conditioner afterward, applying from your ears down to your ends. Spritz on a leave-in conditioner daily (you can layer other styling products right over it). Everyday strategy: Apply mousse, twist into three loose buns, blow-dry for about 10 minutes, and then take hair down. It will have loads of body.
Changing your hair’s texture dramatically transforms your look. It is also time-consuming and involves (potentially damaging) heat styling, so save it for special occasions.

The internationally recognized symbol for peace (☮) was originally designed for the British nuclear disarmament movement by Gerald Holtom in 1958. Holtom, an artist and designer, made it for a march from Trafalgar Square, London to the Atomic Weapons Research Establishment at Aldermaston in England, organised by the Direct Action Committee to take place in April and supported by the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND). Holtom's design, the original of which is housed in the Peace Museum in Bradford, England, was adapted by Eric Austen (1922–1999) to ceramic lapel badges.
The symbol is a combination of the semaphore signals for the letters ‘N’ and ‘D,’ standing for ‘nuclear disarmament’. In semaphore the letter ‘N’ is formed by a person holding two flags in an upside-down ‘V,’ and the letter ‘D’ is formed by holding one flag pointed straight up and the other pointed straight down. Superimposing these two signs forms the shape of the centre of the peace symbol. Holtom later wrote to Hugh Brock, editor of Peace News, explaining the genesis of his idea in greater depth: ‘I was in despair. Deep despair. I drew myself: the representative of an individual in despair, with hands palm outstretched outwards and downwards in the manner of Goya's peasant before the firing squad. I formalized the drawing into a line and put a circle round it.’ Ken Kolsbum, a correspondent of Holtom's, says that the designer came to regret the symbolism of despair, as he felt that peace was something to be celebrated and wanted the symbol to be inverted. Eric Austen is said to have ‘discovered that the 'gesture of despair' motif had long been associated with 'the death of man', and the circle with 'the unborn child',’ possibly referring to images in Rudolf Koch's The Book of Signs, (Das Zeichenbuch, 1923) an English edition of which had been published in 1955.
The symbol became the badge of CND and wearing it became a sign of support for the campaign for unilateral nuclear disarmament by Britain. An account of CND's early history described it as ‘a visual adhesive to bind the March and later the whole Campaign together ... probably the most powerful, memorable and adaptable image ever designed for a secular cause.’
Not patented or restricted, the symbol spread beyond CND and was adopted by the wider anti-war movement. It became known in the United States in 1958 when Albert Bigelow, a pacifist protester, sailed a small boat fitted with the CND banner into the vicinity of a nuclear test. Buttons with the symbol were imported into the United States in 1960 by Philip Altbach, a freshman at the University of Chicago. Altbach had traveled to England to meet with British peace groups as a delegate from the Student Peace Union (SPU) and on his return he persuaded the SPU to adopt the symbol. Between 1960 and 1964 they sold thousands of the buttons on college campuses. By end of the decade it had become a generic peace sign, crossing national and cultural boundaries.

Bass fishing is the activity of angling for the North American gamefish known colloquially as the black bass. There are numerous black bass species considered as gamefish in North America, including largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, Spotted bass or Kentucky bass, Guadalupe bass, and many other species and subspecies of the genus Micropterus. Though referred to as bass, all are actually members of the sunfish family.
Modern bass fishing has evolved into a multi-billion dollar industry. The sport has changed drastically since its beginnings in the late 19th century. From humble beginnings, the black bass has become the second most specifically sought-after game fish in the United States. The sport has driven the development of all manner of fishing gear, including rods, reels, lines, lures, electronic depth and fish-finding instruments, drift boats, float tubes, and specialized bass boats.
Largemouth bass were often stocked in tank ponds and warmer lakes, while smallmouth bass were distributed to lakes and rivers throughout the northern and western United States, as far west as California. Smallmouth were transplanted east of the Appalachians just before the Civil War, and afterwards introduced into New England.
By the early 20th century, bass fishing had been well established as a sport with its own following. Though the use of artificial lures for bass had begun with the Artificial fly and fly fishing tackle, the bait casting rod and reel soon came to dominate the sport. Although fixed-spool reels were introduced in use in the United States as early as the 1870s, spinning reels and rods did not gain wide acceptance as an angling tool until the 1950s. Since that time, most bass anglers have used bait casting or spinning tackle, using either artificial lures or live bait. Recently, advanced electronics that mimic the sounds of schooling bait fish have been introduced, and a controversy has arisen over the proper use of these devices in bass tournament fishing.
Since the early 1990s, fly fishing for bass, particularly smallmouth bass, has again become popular, using fly patterns, rods, and fly lines suited for bass.
The increasingly popularity of the sport combined with ‘catch and release’ practices have in some cases led to an overpopulation of bass.
An overpopulated, stunted bass population can best be detected in the spring when all the bass are at least one year old. If virtually all the bass are 4 inches long or smaller, the population is probably stunted.

Roses are the ultimate flower for expression of emotion or feeling. As a gift, these flowers can convey different meanings if the person receiving them knows the symbolism attached to the various colors. Over the years, the meanings behind the colors have evolved to cover many sentiments. Before ordering a bouquet of roses for delivery, or to interpret possible meaning behind the last bouquet you received, read on to learn the meanings associated with many common colors.
Red is the most commonly given color of roses. Red signifies love and passion. True red is the flower for lovers. Fiery red signifies passion, while cardinal red symbolizes desire. Fully bloomed red blooms best convey the message “I still love you,” while buds are a way to express love for the first time.
Yellow roses once meant jealousy, but today the color signifies friendship, familiar love, and domestic happiness. They can also be an appropriate sentiment to express sympathy. Orange roses symbolize an expression of pride or amazement, while peach symbolize appreciation and desire. A bouquet of orange flowers would be appropriate for a graduate or to commemorate a promotion, while peach could express sincere appreciation for someone’s accomplishments.
Pink flowers signify elegance, gentility, and poetic romance, without the seriousness signified by red. Flowers of this color are more light-hearted than red and can signify mere admiration or sweetness of thought. Light pink can signify both sympathy and friendship, while dark pink is symbolic of appreciation and thankfulness. A mixture of pink and red flowers signifies a romantic relationship.
White roses are sometimes called the “flower of light” and are the bride’s flower. They symbolize unity, sincerity, loyalty, purity, and a love stronger than death. White flowers can be mixed with red to emphasize the meaning of love, while white buds are an appropriate gift to a young girl from her father.
Purple roses represent majestic glory and can symbolize eternal love, while lavender or lilac signifies love at first sight or the beginning of true feelings. Purple flowers are appropriate for wedding anniversaries beyond 25 years and as memorial flowers for a lost spouse. Deep purple should be reserved for intimate situations.
Black roses are symbolic of death. Many people view flowers of this color as an omen, but they can signify change or rejuvenation on the horizon, as some buds appear black but then bloom into crimson red. The meaning may not be understood or well received as a gift, so you should avoid this color if you are at all unsure of the recipient’s beliefs.
Many colors come in various shades, which can signify slightly different meanings from their primary colors. Mixing different colors together in one bouquet is an excellent way to convey a mixture of emotions when one sentiment is not enough.

A hairstyle, hairdo, or haircut refers to the styling of hair, usually on the human head. The fashioning of hair can be considered an aspect of personal grooming, fashion, and cosmetics, although practical, cultural, and popular considerations also influence some hairstyles.
A wedding is the ceremony in which two people are united in marriage or a similar institution. Wedding traditions and customs vary greatly between cultures, ethnic groups, religions, countries, and social classes. Most wedding ceremonies involve an exchange of wedding vows by the couple, presentation of a gift (offering, ring(s), symbolic item, flowers, money), and a public proclamation of marriage by an authority figure or leader. Special wedding garments are often worn, and the ceremony is sometimes followed by a wedding reception. Music, poetry, prayers or readings from religious texts or literature are also commonly incorporated into the ceremony.
Buns are cool, just keep them loose-Updos aren't just for prom, New Years and Lois Lane. A loose, casual updo is a quick way to look pulled together. Simply finger-comb hair into a low, disheveled bun or knot and attach with a ponytail holder and bobby pins. And please, leave the tight, ballerina 'do for the dancers.
Not waiting too long means your stylist won't have to dye your whole head due to color fading. In the meantime, cover up roots with a home hair-color kit. Although there are great root touch-up kits out there, a regular dye kit will do you. And don't worry about perfectly matching, it's likely not going to happen on a salon dye job and no one will notice. Swap out the brush that comes in the kit and instead use a clean mascara wand (you can get these at any drugstore).
Bangs are hot, just make sure you get the right bangs We love the look of thick, blunt bangs and side-swept bangs. Just avoid the thin, wispy, all-one-length bangs; it will make your face look ‘boxy’ and dated. A very hot look right now are blunt bangs paired with long, wavy layers. Especially with perfect highlights. Not ready for the thick bangs? Try side-swept bangs paired with long layers. Layering hair with bangs works best because it's less boxy while allowing your hair to grow out without looking too extreme if you decide to grow out the trend. Just make sure your side-swept bangs hit the middle of your brows -- any shorter and you'll look dated.
Stylists prefer if you don't wash hair the morning of an updo. And don't be surprised if they sprinkle dry shampoo on your hair. These help create the perfect texture for an updo. Keep this tip in mind when creating your own updos. Soak up extra oils with baby powder, which creates the same texture as dry shampoo but at a fraction of the cost.

If you're looking for a hairstyle for your next party then we've got some great suggestions...
A bob hairstyle is a great party option because it is so versatile and can work for just about any hair type and comes in lots of different hair lengths. For a party look, style it sleekly, add some braids, or add lots of textured curls.
Nothing beats a long wavy hairstyle for a simple yet stunning look. Although the lengths and textures differ, the general idea is the same, long hair with waves through the mid-lengths and ends. The angles can range from extremely plunging, to gently sloping and soft, or even defined, elegant waves.
For an easy party look a classic ponytail is a great choice and can be styled as a regular ponytail at the back of your head, side-swept, or as a high, backcombed ponytail. Have fun and pull out the hair accessories to add lots of glamour.
If you have straight hair then a party is a great time to show it off. Keep it simple with a side hair part, clean, healthy locks and lots of hair shine!
Updos are hot, and they are something that everyone can try. A sleek updo, a backcombed updo with plenty of hair volume, or a curly updo with loose strands that frame your face will give you a look worthy of any party! Check out our range of updo hairstyles to find one for you!
Crimping (the non-80s way) is one of the easiest things you can do with a flat iron—and the effect is subtle and current, not dated.
Love the pink tips so many celebs are sporting these days? Try it, temporarily, by ‘chalking’ your hair with soft chalk pastels (available at any art supply store). After running the chalk over your strands to saturate your tips with color (do it outside ‘cause the stuff gets everywhere), use your flat iron to seal in the new hue so it stays put all night.
Texture usually comes with two-day-old hair, but now you can create this effect on freshly cleansed tresses. First, mist dry hair with a salt spray, and then loosely braid a few one-inch sections of hair around your face. Run your flat iron over the braids, and then undo them to reveal that coveted roughed-up effect. Repeat these steps all over your head.
Headbands are awesome - they're way cheaper than jewelry and they can make just as dramatic a statement, as Sara Paxton shows. Plus, they're incredibly easy to use! Messy bun is the perfect ‘too cool to care’ hairstyle and the best part is that you can't mess it up: it's supposed to be messy.
Having a cropped cut doesn't mean you can't mix things up a little, just look at Emma Watson. Grab some colored or jeweled bobby pins or a fun barrette -- or two -- and put them in your hair. Instant coolness!

Deep sea fishing, sometimes called sport or big game fishing is a form of fishing in which people angle for large open-ocean fish species, like tuna, shark, and swordfish. This type of fishing is meant to be enjoyable, in that fighting big game fish can be a real challenge, and it also provides a source of food, depending on whether people keep or release their catch. Deep sea fishing is practiced in many regions of the world, and it is often possible to charter a boat for sport fishing if you are visiting or living in a coastal community.
The goal with deep sea fishing is to travel far enough away from land so that fishermen reach deeper parts of the ocean, giving them access to fish species which only live in the open ocean. Big game fish like the open ocean because it provides them with lots of room and lots of prey, and some fishing grounds may be teeming with such fish, especially if they have been well-managed. Often, a deep sea fishing expedition will travel beyond the sight of land to reach prime fishing grounds.
Once the boat arrives on site, a number of techniques can be used to fish. Some people like to use nets, while others prefer to spread bait in the water to attract fish, and to hook them individually. Spear fishing is also possible with some species. In all cases, fishermen have to be strong and quick on their feet because big game fish can escape in the early stages of the process. This fight for the fish is the enjoyable part of the experience in the eyes of many sport fishermen.
Going on a fishing charter can be an enjoyable experience for people who like fishing and being out on the water. Many charters provide all of the equipment people will need, although it is also possible to bring your own gear, and the crew will support the fishermen as they quest for fish.

We love the ever popular waterfall braid and have enjoyed experimenting with it. Waterfall braids are very trendy right now and seem to be the ‘in’ hairstyles for 2012, along with many other braided hairdos. We have done a ‘waterfall twist braid’ along with several variations of the standard 3 strand waterfall braids in the past and wondered if it would be possible to make a waterfall fishtail braid.
It should work great for long hair, medium hair, even shoulder length hair. If you prefer more of a messy, relaxed hair, you can definitely stretch the strands of the braid.
Little girls’ hairstyles and haircuts in 2012 are very cute and pretty. You can choose from many hair lengths, colors and styles. If you are looking for some ideas and tips, then you are on the right place.
First step to beautiful girly hairstyle is to ensure, that hair is healthy. Always remember that healthy hair is beautiful hair! You should consider and follow some advices about how to achieve healthy hair.
Little girls look cute with long, medium or short hair. But it is easier to care for short or medium, than for longer hair. Long hair is a responsibility, because it needs a lot of care and attention.
Girls’ hair can be put in a pony tail or braids. Hair accessories are very convenient when it comes to young girls, because different hair clips, bows and ribbons help to get hair away from face, so that girls can feel comfortable when they are playing and running around. Besides hair accessories make little girls look like the cutest thing in the world!
Some little girls have naturally curled hair and they look adorable. Curls are cute way to make little girls hairstyle for any occasion - it can be appropriate for special events like weddings, or just for an ordinary day.
Even if girls’ hair is straight, it can be curled with hair heat tools. But be careful when using these tools, because they can damage hair. That is why you should apply heat protecting spray before using any heat on hair.

A star is a massive, luminous sphere of plasma held together by gravity. At the end of its lifetime, a star can also contain a proportion of degenerate matter. The nearest star to Earth is the Sun, which is the source of most of the energy on Earth. Other stars are visible from Earth during the night, when they are not obscured by atmospheric phenomena, appearing as a multitude of fixed luminous points because of their immense distance. Historically, the most prominent stars on the celestial sphere were grouped together into constellations and asterisms, and the brightest stars gained proper names. Extensive catalogues of stars have been assembled by astronomers, which provide standardized star designations.
For at least a portion of its life, a star shines due to thermonuclear fusion of hydrogen in its core releasing energy that traverses the star's interior and then radiates into outer space. Almost all naturally occurring elements heavier than helium were created by stars, either via stellar nucleosynthesis during their lifetimes or by supernova nucleosynthesis when stars explode. Astronomers can determine the mass, age, chemical composition and many other properties of a star by observing its spectrum, luminosity and motion through space. The total mass of a star is the principal determinant in its evolution and eventual fate. Other characteristics of a star are determined by its evolutionary history, including diameter, rotation, movement and temperature. A plot of the temperature of many stars against their luminosities, known as a Hertzsprung–Russell diagram (H–R diagram), allows the age and evolutionary state of a star to be determined.
A star begins as a collapsing cloud of material composed primarily of hydrogen, along with helium and trace amounts of heavier elements. Once the stellar core is sufficiently dense, some of the hydrogen is steadily converted into helium through the process of nuclear fusion. The remainder of the star's interior carries energy away from the core through a combination of radiative and convective processes. The star's internal pressure prevents it from collapsing further under its own gravity. Once the hydrogen fuel at the core is exhausted, a star with at least 0.4 times the mass of the Sun expands to become a red giant, in some cases fusing heavier elements at the core or in shells around the core. The star then evolves into a degenerate form, recycling a portion of the matter into the interstellar environment, where it will form a new generation of stars with a higher proportion of heavy elements.

Go beyond the classic nail colors and turn your manicure into nail art.

Leopard-print nails are fun, and one of the easiest "fancy" manicures to DIY. All the painting is freehand, and you can work quickly because the more uneven your leopard spots are, the better. With three chords, you can write a rock song. With three polish colors, you can do your nails all leopard-y.
Animal print, or leopard print, is a clothing and fashion style in which the garment is made to resemble the pattern of the skin and fur of an animal such as a leopard, cheetah, zebra, tiger, spotted hyena, striped hyena, African wild dog, giraffe or monkey. Animal print is also used for handbags and footwear and even some jewelry. A major difference between animal prints and fur clothing is that animal prints today very often use fake fur instead of animal coat.
Animal prints have long been a popular style for many reasons. For one, they are generally expensive and considered rather exotic; hence they are a symbol of wealth and status. Throughout history, kings and other high people have used animal print rugs and such as a sign of status just as mounted animals are kept as trophies. Animal print became popular for women in the United States in the late 1960s during the Bohemian movement.

There's nothing attractive about perfectly flatironed hair—just ask any guy. For soft, touchable waves, work volumizer through damp hair (if your hair is thick, use a nickel-size drop of styling cream instead to reduce frizz). Blow-dry while tossing your hair around with your hands—the bigger it gets, the better. Then take a one-inch curling iron and, holding it vertically, open the iron and spiral inch-wide sections of hair around the barrel for a few seconds without clamping the iron shut. Only curl the hair from ear level down—leaving the roots straight keeps the look loose and natural. Once the waves have cooled, rake your fingers through to soften them.
For the most appealing chignon, follow these steps:
1. Starting about two inches from your scalp, lightly tease just your roots with a fine-tooth comb, using broad strokes to avoid compacting the hair too tightly. This will help prevent the bun from slipping out. (Skip this step if your hair is curly.)
2. Gather your hair at the nape of your neck and make a low, loose ponytail, securing it with elastic placed about a half-inch away from your scalp.
3. Tease the underside of the ponytail, and then casually wind it into a bun. Use ridged, U-shape hairpins to anchor it, sticking one in each side of the knot and one at the bottom.
Soft blowout: Begin by blow-drying hair straight with a round brush to increase volume, and then curl the ends using a large-barrel iron. Working in small sections, roll the bottom few inches of hair under, then slide the iron out and use a large clip to hold curl in place until it has cooled. Afterward, brush through the ends to create chunky coils.
Side bun: Shifting a bun to the side makes it more charming—and less schoolmarmish. First, comb hair into a deep side part so it sweeps across one eye. Then, neatly brush it into a low ponytail on the side of your neck opposite to your part, securing the ponytail no more than two inches off-center (any further and you'll look like you have a doorknob growing out of your ear). Lightly tease the tail with the brush, which will help the bun hold, then wind it around into a chignon and secure with ridged, U-shape hairpins.
Jumbo curls - The secret to creating them: hot rollers, which give a looser spring to hair than a curling iron. Use medium-size rollers if you have fine hair, and large ones for thick or curly hair. Working with widths of hair that are the size of the rollers, start by wrapping the middle section around the barrel first, then wind the ends around and roll up to your scalp. (This prevents the curls from becoming perky ringlets.) To finish, brush through the curls once to fluff them, and then keep your fingers off so they don't lose their shape.
Add a floral accessory: When putting flowers in your hair, there's a fine line between ethereal and hokey. To keep things sophisticated, choose a pin with an orchid or gardenia rather than hippie-ish flowers like daisies. Be sure the buds are white or pastel colors—bright hues are usually too cutesy, though brunettes can pull off a vibrant purple piece. Finally, choose the right placement: On loose hair, pin the flower right above one ear, or stick it in the top of a low bun or ponytail.

In the United States and Canada, a prom is a formal (black tie) dance or gathering of high school students. It is typically held near the end of the senior year (i.e. the last year of high school). It figures greatly in popular culture and is a major event among high school students. High school juniors attending may call it ‘junior prom’ while high school seniors may call it ‘senior prom’. In practice this may be a combined junior/senior dance. A Prom King and Queen may be revealed. These are honorary titles awarded to students chosen in a school-wide vote prior to the event and are usually given to seniors. Juniors may also be honored, but would be called ‘Prince’ or ‘Princess’. Other students may be honored with inclusion in a ‘Court’. The selection method for Court is similar to that of Homecoming Queen, King, and Court. Inclusion in a Court is a reflection of popularity of those chosen and their level of participation in school activities, such as clubs or sports.
In Britain and Australia the terms formal and grad are most commonly used for occasions equivalent to the American, and the event is usually held for those graduating high, secondary or middle school. However the term is becoming more common in the UK due to the influence of US TV shows. In Ireland, the event is known as debs (originally an abbreviation of debutante ball).
Boys usually dress in black or white formal wear, regardless of the time of the event, sometimes paired with brightly colored ties or bow ties with vests, in some cases in colors matching their date's dress. Most are rented from stores that specialize in formal wear rentals.
Girls wear traditional ladies dresses or gowns and wear ladies jewelry such as earrings and a necklace.
Traditionally girls will also wear a corsage, given to them by their dates, and girls give boys matching boutonnières to be worn on their lapel.
Today, prom continues to be an elaborately important event in the social climate of high schools. Popular movies and novels attest to the importance of themes, dates, and queens. Still, prom has become more liberal about its requirements for participants and activities. It is no longer quite as important to have a date or to be asked by the perfect guy. More and more girls are choosing their own dates and more and more guys are going ‘stag’ or with a group of friends. While going stag was once social suicide, some kids now attend in groups rather than as couples.
