Accepting Your Inner Lesbian – Coming Out to Yourself

0 Game Walkthrough No Comments

I can imagine you have been thinking about it for quite some time: these strange feelings; these desires; the way your glance seems to go in the wrong direction; the lack of anything but feigned interest in the captain of the local football team. You probably imagine that there is either something wrong with you, or that the whole thing is a phase which, like acne or puberty, will pass you by quickly and without leaving any marks. You enjoy looking at women and your thoughts turn to a female partner quicker in those more intimate moments than to a male one.

First of all let us get one thing straight: there is nothing wrong with you. Everyone, whether they wish to admit it or not, has thoughts and feelings, even the most intimate ones, revolving around members of their own sex. No one else can see these emotions: there is no change in the way you walk or your appearance; it is not going to appear on a billboard beside the road where everyone can see; it is not a massive problem. At least, it is not going to be a problem if you have the self-confidence to accept yourself for what you are, a normal, developing person just like everyone else. How you deal with this development, this coming of age, depends entirely on you.

One thing that you can do is suppress your impulses. In other words, you can lie to yourself and imagine that your desires are going to vanish one day: you will wake up in the morning and have exactly the same longings as everyone else around you; the captain of the football team will be your one and only; the cheerleaders will just be a pretty clique obscuring your view of the team. You can live a lie for the rest of your days and still have a relatively normal life.

Or you can accept that you may either be Bisexual or a Lesbian, a state of affairs which I can promise you from personal experience, is not quite as bad as it sounds. You can accept that you are part of a group of wonderful human beings, probably a bigger portion of society than you imagine, and live your life to the full. In the end it makes little or no difference what you decide, you will continue to develop as nature had intended; how you deal with your sexuality is another matter entirely.

The first thing you need to do is take a look in the mirror. Take a close look at your features, at your face and hair. Has anything changed? I doubt it: you will see exactly the same person standing there as you see every morning when you wash or do your teeth; the same person who appears beside you in shop windows as your walk through town; the same person everyone else sees in your daily life. Stand in front of a full-length mirror, preferably in the nude, and what do you see? The same body that you have been accustomed to seeing each and everyday as you dress; the same person who showers, walks, lives and breaths your life, twenty-four hours a day.

The only changes are ones that you, personally, can feel: changes in your mind; changes in your emotions; changes in your perceived needs. This is where the problem lies: this is the area you need to work on in order to gain acceptance from yourself, for yourself.

There are many ways to gain acceptance of yourself from and for yourself: one is to see your reflection and accept that it has not changed, but that you have matured; one is to find someone you can talk to; one is to seek therapy from a professional. My personal preference is for the first option, each and every time, depending on how much self-confidence you can muster and how open you are with yourself.

Let us take a look at the other options too, just to get them out of the way. Firstly, who can you talk to? I would imagine that, if you are the same age as I am, you probably do not know too many people of your own age group who are capable of talking about their emotions in a deep and meaningful way; that most would be mentally over-stretched or out of their league and, depending on how much information you are willing to impart, would either avoid you in the future, or spread the news faster than a forest fire in August. Older women? A good possibility, and probably the best to hold in reserve for later; a woman who has more life experience. The drawback is, at this stage, she needs to be on the same wavelength as you are and that, depending on her age, could be a problem. Then we have therapy; talking to a professional who is so distant from the subject it is unbelievable. Sigmund Freud may well have had his theories, but we are talking about your life here and not some generalised set of psychological assumptions. And who is going to pay for the sessions without knowing the reason?

That does not mean you should wipe therapy from your list of Things To Do, merely upgrade it to LGBT Counselling where the real expertise lies. Therapy is not the answer, counselling from experts could be, but not necessarily at this moment in time.

My preference, in the first instance, is for you to take advantage of the inherent understanding of yourself which is already within you. No one can read your mind; no one can understand your inner emotions better than you can. Your mind is a wonder of nature and works faster than you can explain the problem to another person; it is adaptable and filled with information you may think you have long forgotten. You do not need to worry about Coming Out to all and sundry, that may well come later and then only in bits and pieces, acceptable and easy to handle. You need first of all to accept yourself for what you are and, if you are either Bisexual or a Lesbian, so be it. You are still a normal person. You are still You.

Yandere Simulator – A Stealth Video Game For The PC

0 Game Walkthrough No Comments

Yandere Simulator is a free video game for PC users. It is a stealth type video game where the players play as a high school girl named Ayano Aishi. She is in love with her senior, senpai and wants to attain his attention by any means possible. It is quite a unique game with an addictive gameplay and good graphics. However, it is still in development stage and until it gets completed, it's going to be a bit buggy.

The concept

Yandere Simulator is based on a typical Japanese high school theme. Ayano Aishi has a huge crush on her senpai and wants his love. However, she's a bit reluctant to talk to him directly. And, to make things more difficult, it seems like her senpai is quite popular as other girls in the school are also trying to get close to him. Ayano has to eliminate her competition, and she can use all possible means to do so. Even blackmailing and killing other girls is allowed. However, she has to do these missions quietly, when no one is looking at her. Thus, comes the stealth element.

What's in it for the players

Because of its high school drama element, the game is quite popular among the teenagers. However, that does not stop some grown-up video gamers from playing the game. The gameplay is good despite the fact that the game is quite full of bugs. Control options are great, and the missions are challenging. To progress in the game players have to tasks that are quite immoral in the real world. However, it is this element that makes the game unique and addictive. Players have to complete the tasks without leaving any tracks. Otherwise, Ayano will get caught and the game ends.

The game is quite detailed and relates quite much to the real world. For example, there is a social element in the game and that we live in a large group, we do not want to get caught for the wrongdoings, etc.

The game is not complete

Again, Yandere Simulator is still in development stage and what available is the beta version. The developer of the game has made the beta version available on the internet for download and installation without spending any penny. Simply visit the official website to download the game. The download file is actually the game launcher using which you can also update the game. The game developer typically makes the update available after two weeks.

Since the game is still at testing phase, players experience quite many bugs, errors. In some cases, the game launcher does not work and sometimes the game crashes. Also, you will never win the game because it is not complete yet.

Delegation: The Key to Organizational Effectiveness

0 Game Walkthrough No Comments

Delegation Essentials

If your “to do” list stretches further than the eye can see and you never have enough time to get everything done, are you delegating properly? Consider this organizational effectiveness principle: All work should be done at the lowest cost consistent with the hospital’s standards of quality and timeliness.

Are you spending valuable time (your most scarce resource) performing tasks that could and should be done by someone else at a lower hourly rate?

Delegation is a technique that employs three concepts to multiply management effectiveness: authority, responsibility, and accountability.

  • Authority is the amount of control over human and other resources formally assigned to a manager by the organization.
  • Responsibility defines the organization’s expectation of performance from a manager. One is responsible for producing expected results.
  • Accountability defines to whom it is that a manager will answer for responsibility performance. One is accountable to an organizational entity for responsibility fulfillment.

Theoretically, the authority to perform all management functions can be delegated. Responsibility, on the other hand, can never be delegated. A hospital governing body delegates authority to its chief executive officer for day-to-day management but retains responsibility for results and remains legally accountable for the CEO’s performance. In turn the CEO delegates authority to the executive staff and, through them, to department managers. Just as the CEO remains accountable to the governing body, department managers retain accountability for performing their delegated responsibilities.

When authority is delegated, accountability requires that performance expectations be clearly articulated. It is not enough for the Vice President of Clinical Services to say, “I’m delegating management of the Laboratory to you.” The Vice President must also say, “This includes meeting all revenue and expense budget goals; satisfactorily resolving all physician complaints; meeting all CLIA requirements; maintaining JCAHO accreditation; and holding employee turnover to less than ten percent per year.”

Continuing our hypothetical example, the Laboratory manager will delegate the completion of certain tasks to department staff but retain responsibility for their performance. The Laboratory manager must clearly articulate performance expectations to the Laboratory staff just as the Vice President of Clinical Services did previously with the Laboratory manager.

Delegation and Control

Because the delegating manager retains ultimate responsibility for delegated functions, control mechanisms must be established to provide feedback on how well the delegated functions are being managed. The existence of these control mechanisms should not be a secret to anyone in the organization.

Controls are typically of two types

  1. Management by Exception Controls trigger reports to the delegating manager only when actual results differ materially from planned results. These are often automated. The intent is to avoid interference with day-to-day management of the delegated function while assuring action when untoward outcomes occur.
  2. Random Controls are unscheduled checks performed at unpredictable intervals. They can be as simple as an unannounced walk-through of a department during the night shift by the CEO and as complicated as systematic telephone surveys to identify concerns or measure satisfaction levels. The purpose is not to ambush subordinate managers and staff but to allow those who maintain ultimate responsibility to assure that their responsibilities are being fulfilled.

Delegating for Management Effectiveness

Proper delegation is key in optimizing managerial effectiveness. Managers must take care to delegate when possible incorporating the concepts of authority, responsibility, and accountability. Doing so will allow managers to maximize organizational effectiveness.

Docking a Boat Secrets – How to Undock Your Boat Like a Pro

0 Game Walkthrough No Comments

Imagine that your small cruising boat lies moored between two million dollar yachts, with only 12 "to spare at the bow and stern? You need to undock your boat in a high, gusty wind blowing onto the dock. The same principals for undocking as you would for docking a boat with these secrets from the pros.

Determine the stronger element direction

Decide on which element will be stronger – wind or current. Pick which of these four situations match your situation. Let's say you are tied up in a marina with a stronger wind than current. Is the wind blowing …

* Off the dock?
* Onto the dock?
* From ahead of the boat?
* From aster of the boat?

Based on your answer, follow one of these methods to undock your boat:

* Wind (or current) off the dock or from ahead

1. Make up a long spring line equal to 1 1/2 times the total length of your cruising boat. Attach one end of the spring to a cleat on the quarter (aft corner).

2. Lead the bitter end to a forward marina dock cleat or piling. Loop it around the dock fitting, bring it back to boat, and cleat it off to the quarter cleat.

3. Start your engine. Assign one person to use a roving fender at the stern to protect the boat. Place your wheel or sailboat teller amidships (in the center).

4. Cast off all lines except the forward quarter spring line. Shift the engine clutch astern at idle speed. Keep tension on the quarter spring and watch the bow move away from the dock.

5. Wait for the bow to clear the vessel ahead. Take the engine out of gear just long enough to ease tension on the quarter spring line. Remove the spring from the cleat and pull it aboard fast. As soon as it's aboard, shift the engine clutch ahead at idle speed to move out into the channel.

* Wind (or current) onto the dock or from astern

1. Make up a long spring line equal to 1 1/2 times the total length of your cruising boat. Attach one end to a boat cleat between the bow and beam.

2. Lead the bitter to an aft dock cleat or piling. Loop it around the dock fitting, bring it back to boat, and cleat it off to the bow spring cleat.

3. Start your engine. Assign one person to use a roving fender at the bow to cushion the boat. Turn your wheel toward the dock. Push a sailboat teller away from the dock. Keep the rudder in this position through the maneuver.

4. Cast off all lines except the bow spring line. Shift the engine clutch ahead at idle speed. Keep tension on the bow spring. Turn so that you can watch the stern move away from the dock.

5. Wait for the stern to clear the vessel aster. Take the engine out of gear just long enough to ease tension on the bow spring. Remove the spring line from the cleat and pull it aboard fast. As soon as it's aboard, clutch the engine astern at idle speed to back clear of the moored yachts and into the channel.

Success in undocking or docking a boat depends on good preparation, positive boat control, and crystal clear communications. Use these tips and you will be undocking your small cruising boat like a pro in no time!

Sports Betting – What’s the Deal?

0 Game Walkthrough No Comments

There is nothing, it seems, quite as natural to human beings as betting is. Betting has been a part of human culture on every continent on Earth. From the Natives of North America to China and everywhere in between, placing a wager on the outcome of a game has been a part of sports life.

Sports betting continues to be a big part of our culture today. Just as in times past, there is not a single sport you can name that doesn’t have some kind of betting audience. Proponents of sports betting say that it is a harmless way to add a little fun to the game. Even if you have never been to a bookmaker, odds are that you have made some kind of wager on a sports event. It might be a fantasy pool, it might just bet for a beer with a buddy, but you have been drawn by the appeal of making a correct prediction.

For some people, sports betting is more than just a way to spice up a favorite past time; it is big business. All over the world, bets are placed on lacrosse, cricket, football, soccer, baseball, and every other sport you can name. Some people win big, some people win consistently, but it’s always the books that come out on top. Let’s take a deeper look at what sports betting is all about, and some of the burning questions people have on the topic.

Is sports betting legal?

One of the biggest questions surrounding sports betting is whether or not the activity is legal. The fact is that in many parts of the world, sports betting is legal. Most of Europe and Asia regulate sports betting quite heavily, but bettors can place their wagers without fear of legal reprisals.

North America is a different story. In Canada and the United States, wagering on sports is only actually allowed in four states: Nevada, Delaware, Montana, and Oregon. Of these, only Nevada actually allows sports gambling outfits to operate.

Now, this does not necessarily mean that North Americans are out of luck if they want to wager on a game. The Internet has opened up a wide range of opportunities for residents west of the Atlantic to places bets on sports, although they must do so through books operated in an area where sports gambling is legal. Even so, the status of those operations is a little bit shady.

How does sports betting work?

Official sports bets, those which take place through bookies rather than buddies, are carefully measured odds offered by shrewd business number crunchers. Whether we are talking about Las Vegas or Beijing, you can be sure that the books are one step ahead of your average bettor when it comes to wagering.

This is not to say that you don’t stand a chance of winning when you place a bet, because one of the appeals of laying a wager on a sports event is that victory is equal parts knowledge and luck (as opposed to casino wagering, which is pretty much just luck no matter what Charlton Heston has to say!).

The sports books offer several different kinds of bets, all of which are designed so that the book itself makes a profit no matter the outcome of the event. That profit is known as the vigorish (vig for short). It’s usually around $10, paid by the person who loses the wager.

Generally, bettors will select one of two options when wagering on a sports event. The first is the money line, in which a straight up win by the team picked will result in money returned to the bettor. They look like this, in a

baseball game:

Chicago White Sox -200

New York Yankees +150

That example tells us two things. First of all, the White Sox are the favorites. That’s indicated by the negative sign. If you bet the Sox, then you have to put down $200 in order to win $100. That’s the second thing the example shows us; the amounts indicate how much you win if the team you select comes out on top. For the Yankees, the underdogs, you only have to pay $150 to get a shot at that hundred bucks. But, of course, the Yankees will have to win!

The other kind of wager made on sports is the spread. Here, bookmakers will offer bettors a chance to win even if the team they bet on loses. Here’s a look at how spreads are expressed:

Chicago Bulls -10

Denver Nuggets

Once again, the negative sign indicates that the Bulls are the favorite. However, in this case, a bettor wagers not on just who will win, but by how much. If you were to bet on the Bulls and they won, but only by 8, you would still lose the bet. The Bulls have to win by more than 10 points if a bet on them is to return money. Conversely, you could bet on the underdog Nuggets and still win if the team loses by less than 10 points.

So that’s a brief introduction to some of the basic points of sports betting. Read some more of our articles in order to get a more in depth understanding of what sports betting is all about!

Top Four Uses for Bluestone

0 Game Walkthrough No Comments

Bluestone can be found everywhere in modern cities, as well as in country gardens and estates, and even in ancient locations – such as Stonehenge – but it is considerably difficult to define. That’s because bluestone is a generic term that is commonly applied to a fairly broad range of minerals including hydrated copper sulphate, dolerite and even lazurite which is the base mineral of lapis lazuli. However, when we talk about the bluestone most often used in contemporary commercial applications, we are mainly referring to basalt which is the blue-grey stone often used in building and paving throughout Australia. While building and paving are the key uses for sandstone in contemporary times, it also enjoys some other uses in commercial and domestic locations. Here are the top four uses for bluestone:

1. Building:

Basalt is used extensively as a building material in Australia, with some buildings such as Victoria’s Pentridge Prison being constructed entirely from bluestone blocks. It is an ideal material for building because it offers a high level of slip and scratch resistance both in its indoor and outdoor use. Since it is hard wearing and attractive, as well as being readily available and affordable, it has enjoyed a long-standing popularity in commercial, civil and residential projects.

2. Paving:

Due to its slip resistance, bluestone is also a top choice for paving stones for gardens, courtyards, steps, driveways and pool surrounds. It has been a popular paving material since the late 1800s so, when used today in pavers, it is guaranteed to evoke a classic vintage mood in gardens and outdoor entertaining areas. Pavers are cut from dense, strong slabs of the stone, which means that they are not only stylish but durable and low-maintenance.

3. Monuments:

Bluestone is commonly used to form large scale monuments and memorial masonry due to its availability, durability and low maintenance requirements. Stonehenge is probably the ultimate monument example, but a quick walk through any town centre or graveyard is guaranteed to reveal many more common instances of the stone’s use in the construction of tombstones, headstones, crypts and grottos.

4. Water features:

As well as being a top choice for paving in gardens, raw bluestone rocks or refined bricks are also used to create tiered fountains and water features in domestic and commercial properties. Due to the stone’s rich colour, unique texture and timeless appeal, it is the obvious choice for water feature walls and stepping stones, as well as pond islands and surrounds.

How to Give Her Thigh-Shaking Orgasms (Tonight!)

0 Game Walkthrough No Comments

Do you want to make your woman explode with orgasmic delight? Well, to be honest I am a little frustrated at how many men are completely clueless in the bedroom. They seem to think their ability to please women lies in the size of their penis. This is absolutely not true. Instead, it just takes a little effort to learn some proven methods – but most guys hate putting in that effort!

How to Give Her Thigh-Shaking Orgasms (Tonight!)

Stack Her Orgasms

This should be the corner stone of every man’s routine in the bedroom. What this does is get a woman to the point where she experiences a blended orgasm (an orgasm which originated from the clitoris and g-spot simultaneously) every 5-10 minutes. In other words, if this is done right, you’ll be able to give her as many orgasms as you want during sex – or until she passes out from all the pleasure!

Missionary with a Twist

When it comes to sex positions, this is probably my favorite. Get in the normal missionary position and then put her legs over your shoulders. Simply elevate her bottom off of the bed, and give her slow and powerful thrusts. What this elevation does is ensure you hit the g-spot each time. Try it out and I can guarantee she won’t be able to get enough!

Longer is Better

If you are going to stack her orgasms, then you’ll probably launch to the top of her list of lovers. But what will keep you up there is your sexual stamina. Since she will be experiencing an amazing orgasm every 5-10 minutes, you will need to be able to last as long as she wants. For some women, a couple of these strong orgasms is enough, but other may want more than 4 or 5!

Trampolines and Outdoor Toys

0 Game Walkthrough No Comments

When you think of toys for children, people generally think of a games console, remote control cars or maybe dolls. Due to the bad weather in the UK, this is not surprising but there is always a great demand for outdoor toys to which some may find surprising but when you look what is on offer for your children, you may realise they are missing a treat.

During the summer months, the most popular outdoor toy hands down has got to be the trampoline, due to its exhilarating feeling that it gives when you shoot up in the air, being able to jump so much higher with other people on a large trampoline. What is good about a trampoline for children is that it gives them a great amount of exercise without them realising which in this day and age, is a very positive point. So many children have been raised without playing outdoors enough, but are addicted to games consoles, television and mp3 players and very rarely venture outdoors.

Outdoor activities give children a large amount of life skills such as how it feels to fall over and how to cope with it, nasty but something many children do not experience so later in life have not developed in other areas to such as social interaction with other children and adults. There are other types of outdoor toys which can help with this, which let children gain confidence, strength and overall health due to the aerobic side to having fun with them.

After trampolines, the next popular outdoor toy has got to be the climbing frame. In many parks, you find metal climbing frames which are two or three meters in height, with some having plastic tunnels on the ground to add an extra thrill. There are good, but even more popular are wooden climbing frames which can be huge and have a old fashioned look which when purchased for your back garden, lets it blend into the surroundings very well and does not give an intrusive feel.

With these frames, you usually get some sort of lookout tower, or two on the larger climbing frames which a clatter bridge in between. To get down to the ground are usually a pair or steps or even more fun, a slide which all kids love. Usually you will get add-ons such as swings, climbing ropes or climbing walls which give children a great workout but so much fun at the same time.

Similar to these are wooden playhouses which can be very orientated towards girls, but there are models available such as a cowboy hideout or climbing tower. These have a large amount of detail and some have an upstairs but do not give as much physical fun but to get fresh air is much better than sitting in front of that computer game.

Lastly there are go karts which we have all had a go in at one point in our lives, with some models having strong breaks, a large comfortable seat so much more luxurious than bog standards karts you would find a few years ago. So whichever activity you look for, from Jumpking trampolines to action tramps climbing frames, giving children the opportunity to give life experience and aerobic activity has only got to be a good thing.

The Fight Or Flight Mechanism – A Self Defense Mechanism

0 Game Walkthrough No Comments

Fight or flight a self protective mechanism…

The fight or flight mechanism takes over when we are faced with a situation where we feel threatened or overwhelmed. It’s built into us! When we see a bear while camping in the woods, we flee, or run like a banshee to safety. The symptoms of fight or flight are caused by the sympathetic nervous system.

We have two parts to our nervous system:

A) The sympathetic part is the part of our nervous system that makes us run or fight.

B) The parasympathetic nervous system calms us down.

We need both parts of these two nervous systems to function normally in life. If the sympathetic nervous system runs amok, it can give us ulcers and panic attacks. When the sympathetic nervous system is over-riding the parasympathetic nervous system, it’s called sympathetic over-ride. But what most people don’t know and what most doctors don’t know is that this response can be initiated by an imbalance of the occiput, or your skull and a compensatory imbalance of the atlas or first cervical vertebrae. Not even cranio-sacral therapists know about this. It’s very new but very profound! The more practitioners and potential patients know about this connection the more this knowledge will come to light.

Some of the physical symptoms from an upper cervical misalignment are:

1. Pain in the upper cervical area.

2. Decrease motion in the upper cervical area, usually turning right or left.

3. A feeling of fullness in the ear or ears.

4. Dizziness

5. Swelling around the ears, occipital area, or swelling around the cranial bones around the ear.

6. Swelling and sponginess from the occipital/atlas junction up to the parietal lobes, both left and right (though more prevalent on the right parietal area).

7. Pain in the scalp, like a burning sensation.

8. Pain at the right or left eye (but more prevalent at the right eye where the orbital artery enters the orbit at the eyebrow, located medial to the middle of the eyebrow).

9. Distant disc pain at some other area down the spine, for example, if you push on the occipital/atlas vertebra, pain erupts at C5 or some other area distal to the occipital/atlas area, this area is felt do to a disc protrusion into the spinal cord at a more distal location. (Remember, it is all a hydraulic system: Exerting pressure at one spot will exert pressure at another spot because the character of fluid is to move and flow.)

10. Temporal mandibular joint pain and swelling.

11. Pain at the temples, both right and left.

12. Sinus pressure and pain throughout the cranium.

The above are just some of the more physical symptoms one can have but the following are from the body’s response to the pressure exerted on the dura-mater in the area of the foreman magnum, in other words a cranio-sacral misalignment.

Symptoms of Sympathetic over-ride

1. Dizziness

2. Stomach upset

3. Anxiety

4. Insomnia

5. Irritability

6. Sensitivity to light

7. Unable to concentrate

8. Depression

9. Muscle twitching

10. Rapid heart rate

11. Uneven heart rhythm

12. Burning sensation in the head and arms felt on the skin.

13. Panic attacks

14. Hard to take a deep breath.

Basically, all the above symptoms are caused because when the scissoring configuration takes place in the atlas/occiput area, the cranial sacral pump is not functioning correctly. When the pump is not functioning right, it causes the fight or flight response to “wake up”. This fight or flight response is a defense mechanism of the body. Usually the para sympathetic system works with the sympathetic nervous system. Working together, we have a healthy function between rest and relaxation and alertness. We are productive during our day because we sleep well at night and have a normal response to stresses during the day.

If we are in a state of sympathetic override, our minds become volatile and we over react to even small stresses during the day. When alone and when it’s quiet, worry and anxiety can start to bother us. Many people walk through their lives feeling all the symptoms of sympathetic override and feel they have to take medication to just get through each day and another medication to sleep well at night. I would say it’s better to get to the root of the problem. So you can see from the cervical misalignment symptomatology above, that neck pain is just a small part of the picture. Correcting this misalignment can be done either with force or non force depending on the practitioner.

Tips for Staying Warm in the Bleachers

0 Game Walkthrough No Comments

Your body is designed to burn food for energy and produces heat from within. So, do not forget to eat! If your body is getting cold, it will sacrifice your feet and hands to save its life. Ever wonder why your feet and hands are the first to get cold ?! Your body loses heat in 5 ways – radiation, convection, construction, respiration and evaporation.

  1. Radiation: Just as a wood stove radiates heat into a room, your body radiates heat into the air. The more insulation you put around it, the loss of heat is reduced.
  2. Convection is moving air. Wind blowing through your sweater or around your jacket is heat lost through convection. Windproof outer layers will help prevent heat loss.
  3. Sitting on some cold bleachers at a football game, grabbing a ski pole, or just catching a cold zipper on your neck, are all heat loss by construction.
  4. Evaporation is a very efficient cooling process.

6 Tips for Staying Warm at a Sporting Event:

  • Check weather conditions before heading outside. Watch your local weekly weather forecast to make it easy to prepare in advance.
  • Dress appropriately. If you are going to be in the extreme cold, wear as many layers of warm clothing as possible. If it's mildly cold, try to dress in just a few layers and pack an extra coat or sweater in case the temperature drops.
  • Be prepared for all conditions. Keep an umbrella, poncho or warm jacket with you. Have an indoor, heated place to go … you do not want to be stuck outside if the weather conditions become extreme.
  • Wear waterproof shoes or boots with a good grip. If your feet are cold and wet, it will not matter how well the rest of your body is bundled up. You will still be miserable!
  • Wear gloves and / or mittens and long thick socks. These protect your hands and feet, which are the hardest places to keep warm blood flowing. Try wearing thinner gloves underneath heavy winter gloves for extra warmth.
  • Pack warm food. Sometimes all you need in chilly conditions is hot food or drink. Carry a thermos with hot drinks, soups, or noodles. Warm food and drink will warm you inside and keep your strength up.
