How Does A Polar Heart Rate Monitor Improve Your Fitness

  • Posted on June 6, 2017 at 5:52 pm

There’s no doubt that our physical well-being is absolutely crucial in today’s world. And arguably, it’s become more important than ever before. It’s funny to think that a few years back, supermodels, Hollywood stars and professional athletes were thought to be the only ones who needed to stay physically fit and healthy. That’s not the case anymore as our society now values regular exercise and healthy eating, especially when there’s an obesity crisis.

Achieving your ultimate fitness goals can seem daunting at times. But having a Polar heart rate monitor by your side can make it much more achievable. The device is designed mainly to increase your physical performance in the area of cardiorespiratory endurance and strengthening muscles by calculating your cardiac rate.

These fitness gadgets are designed to be strapped around the waist or chest area. The great thing about them is they are very compact in size and can be used alongside mobile devices like smart phones and apps as an optional feature.

To use it with fitness tracking app just needs to be downloaded onto it and you’re ready to go. The app will then receive data from the heart rate monitor.

New heart rate monitors feature Bluetooth which allows the fitness app to receive data without unnecessary wires obstructing you while you are in the middle of a workout session.

As the heart rate monitor gauges your cardiac rate, you’ll receive data about the distance you’ve covered, your endurance levels and how many calories have been burned.

The Polar Personal Trainer is an extra feature that measures your fitness progression overtime. These are just one of the many extras you get right out of the box when you purchase a Polar heart rate monitor.

Whether you’re a cyclist, runner, power walker or jogger this fitness device can calculate and analyze everything for you. It’s also useful for people who focus on strength workouts like dumbbells and kettle bells. This device can determine an optimal rest time and duration between sets.

When you maintain a high level of intensity during strengthening exercises, you’ll no doubt produce great results. Simply guessing when your period of rest should be on and how long it needs to be isn’t very effective.

The most effective way to determine your optimal rest period (during strength workouts) or your performance level (during endurance training) is by using a heart rate monitor to do the job for you.

Knowing exactly the right times to cool down and speed up is different for everyone. For instance, professional athletes who train day in and day out will not have the same cool down times as a causal fitness enthusiast.

Tips On Choosing The Right Teen Pageant Dress

  • Posted on June 6, 2017 at 5:05 pm

Many people think that in a teen pageant, a teen pageant dress means more than the female’s character or her responses to the questions in the interview. More than this, it is stated that the teen pageant dress must be an extended image of the female’s character for the public, and the judges, to look at. Whatever the situation is, there isn’t any opposition to how important it is to have the best teen pageant dress.

A teen pageant dress should reveal how unique the contestant is. One-of-a-kind dresses can be obtained from many seamstresses easily. But be sure it is the only teen pageant dress of its kind. It would be a shame if two contestants were in competition with the exact same teen pageant dress on. But, you may think about wearing the same type of dress worn by a previous contestant, especially by someone who has won before.

A teen pageant dress should reveal the contestant’s body shape, but also be beautiful. Be certain to find a dress that goes with the theme and design of the pageant. Older contestants in pageants should appear stylish as well as sexy. Older females who enter pageants should have a dress that reveals their shape in a very eye opening and attractive way, with a draping bottom to display a standard of quality and beauty. However, in pageants with teenagers who are younger, it is better to dress modestly. A teen pageant dress should still have a lovely appearance, but not be as sensual. Usually the more youthful contestants desire teen pageant dresses that reveal their character more than their shapes. Try to consider this advice when obtaining a teen pageant dress.

You should reflect on your character when you shop for a teen pageant dress, as well as the shape of your body, since all designs don’t look good on all figures. Don’t purchase an item off the hanger, or from a seamstress, just because it appears to be beautiful; what looks great on a hanger might not look the same when you put it on. So, always be certain to put on your teen pageant dress before you purchase it. Get a dress that looks beautiful and also makes you look beautiful with it on.

Natural Vitamins & Minerals

  • Posted on June 6, 2017 at 4:10 pm

As the only effective dietary supplementation, natural vitamins and minerals can only be extracted from natural sources. Seems logical, right? So why are the mass-produced, over-the-counter, synthetic, artificial drugstore vitamin & mineral supplements still seeing record sales? That’s a good question.

Our bodies are not designed to cope with the types of “stuff” these synthetic vitamins contain. Artificial colors, preservatives, and other chemicals are your first clue that they’re not so good for you. But then there are the vitamins & minerals themselves. What are they, really? Nothing more than chemical compounds and crushed up rocks.

These substances are unrecognizable (and thereby unusable) by the human body. Our bodies are natural creations which demand natural fuel sources. Anything else is either completely useless… or actually harmful! What do you think when our sensitive internal tissues, blood cells, and capillaries are met with laboratory chemicals and crushed up rocks? This is serious cause for concern.

Our diets are horrible, and many of our supplements are even worse. So what’s our saving grace?

Natural Vitamin & Mineral Supplements!

Whole-food supplements (derived primarily from organic plant sources) are key in undoing the vast damage we’ve done to ourselves. They are easily recognized, assimilated, and used (what a concept!) by the body, and provide immediate, noticable results!

Pure energy, mental focus, and “zest for life” occur right away. By continually providing our bodies with this much-needed high-quality nutrition, even greater results can be enjoyed. Weight loss, immune system health, clear skin, bright eyes, dramatic pain reduction, and dozens of other incredible benefits are ours!

When shopping for a healthy, natural vitamins & minerals supplement, DRIVE PAST THE DRUGSTORE! They don’t have what you want, I promise you. Your local health food store is a much better option. Look for a whole-food multivitamin with as few artificial ingredients as possible.

I also recommend that while you’re at the health food store, you pick up a natural antioxidant formula. The Acai Berry is the best. Green tea is good, too. It will help to cleanse your body, give you an extra energy boost, and take your supplementation to the next level.

I’m cheering for you! Thank you for reading.

Tips To Decide On The Appropriate Childrens Clothes

  • Posted on June 6, 2017 at 2:43 pm

Shopping for childrens clothes can be fun but at the same time time-consuming because of the availability of many types of options in the stores. The other fact is that children grow up very fast making it more difficult to find the most appropriate clothing for them. The following tips will act as a guideline to the parents and guardians when it comes to selecting various types of clothing for their kids.

Because the kids play a lot it is important that when selecting everyday clothes, the buyers should select clothes that can be easily worn. They should come with the right type of structure to make it easy to put on or remove as desired. The buyers should also ensure that they stay away from those clothes that stick to the body as this will make it hard to wear and at the same time limit the freedom of the child when they are playing.

The other important thing is to determine the comfort of the child. This means that the consumers should ensure that the type of fabric that makes the child very comfortable. There are various types of fabrics from lace to satin but not all of them are safe for the young ones and therefore the consumers are advised to opt for the soft cottons that are recommended for summer because of their comfort. They are also advised to select fleece or woolen for winter to keep the child not only comfortable but also warm. To ensure safety, it is recommended that the buyers opt for those that have zippers and not buttons when it comes to buying infants or toddlers clothes. Kids usually swallow the buttons and this has a lot of consequences. They are also asked to avoid the ones that are designed with ties as they increase the risks of strangling.

The size of the children clothing is also very important. Choosing larger clothes will increases the chances of the child tripping over them thus causing accidents. Selecting those that are smaller will only work to restrict the childs activities as well as interfere with their breathing- something that is not healthy. The advantage is that many stores have wide variety of clothing sizes for the kids and the buyers will have an easier time in choosing them. The other option is to go to the stores with the child and make him or her try as many clothes as possible in order to find the right one for them.

The increasing number of manufacturers and stores for children clothing has cause a wide range of prices for them. This provides many buyers a chance to select the ones that are within their budgets. The users have the option of selecting brick and mortar stores or online stores for all their shopping needs as they will get assorted clothes at different price tags. They can compare a variety order to find the ones that fit their budget

  • Posted on June 6, 2017 at 2:09 pm

Hawaii is to receive a new Hyatt-branded hotel after Hyatt Hotels and Resorts announced that they will be opening the new Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort & Spa in Spring, 2012.

The new hotel will be located on Mokapu and Ulua Beach on the island of Maui, which is a hotspot for idyllic beach weddings, and Michael Stephens has been named as the General Manager.

Set upon 15 acres of land, the new Hyatt resort will take over the hotel that was once the Wailea Renaissance resort. This is the first Andaz-branded property to be built in Hawaii and the brand embraces local culture into its dcor, food and events.

The Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort & Spa will have 325 rooms and suites, a lavish 15,000-quare-foot spa, and 12,000-square-feet of event and meeting space, making it the perfect venue for destination weddings of any size.

The location has been un-crowded since the closure of the Wailea Renaissance hotel. Being on the south end of the Island means ideal weather and beautiful sunsets. This will certainly change next year when the Andaz resort opens its doors.
Hawaii is a fantastic destination for island weddings thanks to its idyllic surroundings, a tropical climate and a variety of luxurious hotels and facilities that are available to the bride and groom and their guests.

Monkey Suit

  • Posted on June 6, 2017 at 11:24 am

Be yourself and do your best”, I believe that the previous comment has been one of the foundations of any motivational speaker and all the “feel good” movies starring Adam Sandler; unfortunately I’m beginning to discover that this is not real, and that lying and deception are the keys to success. What makes these awful qualities complete is the right wardrobe, and what better attire to use in deception than the “Monkey Suit”.

According to urban slang a monkey suit is “a uniform that one wears to work every day”. Well, when you think about it, you live in a concrete jungle with tall buildings and you’re climbing these buildings and swinging from office to office to get those bananas at the end of the month… Hence: Monkey Suit. Now that we have passed the cartoon images in my head, let’s see what started this topic. Nobody can deny that suits look good, and they can turn heads in meetings and sometimes seal some deals, but the glorified status that the suits have taken compared to the employee’s actual work is very weird.

Society today perceive a person on the way they look, their attitude, sense of humor and showing up early as a sign of discipline (Trained Monkey) and far down the list your actual work lays there; Well not that far but its nowhere near the top. If anyone is familiar with the show “Suits”, there is a character who is a drug dealer but wears a 2000$ suit and no one would ever suspect he is a drug dealer. It’s amazing what this monkey suit can do to people. Now comes the hard question budgeting the bananas you get at the end of the month to buy new suits and still have some left to make yourself a nice banana milk shake at the end of the day for you to enjoy? A real brow raiser. Can I just buy a monkey and leave the suit? It would be cheaper and a heck lot funnier.

Finally, we need to review our priorities in life and begin to digest that the man or woman make the suit not the other way around. And what better way to end this than with a quote from William Arnot a Scottish preacher and theological writer in the 1800s, “If honor be your clothing, the suit will last a lifetime; but if clothing be your honor, it will soon be worn threadbare.”

Delft’s New Train Station

  • Posted on June 6, 2017 at 10:49 am

Info & Images: Courtesy Mecanoo Photography: Harry Cock

Intro: Mecanoo Architects design the new Delft station, marking one’s arrival at Delft as a ceremonial and memorable experience…

Copy: Delft’s new train station is now in use. It was officially opened on Saturday, 28th February 2015. The station, in combination with municipal offices and the new city hall, sits atop a new train tunnel built in place of the old concrete viaduct that has divided the city in two since 1965. From the outset, Mecanoo’s idea has been to design a station that makes it clear to visitors that they have arrived in Delft.

Says Francine Houben, Mecanoo’s creative director, -Coming up the escalators, the impressive ceiling with the historic map of Delft unfolds. When you look outside, you see the city and the old station as a modern -View of Delft’ by the painter Johannes Vermeer. Arriving in Delft is now an unforgettable experience!-

The character of Delft, epitomised by the combination of past and future, was the starting point for the design led by Francesco Veenstra of Mecanoo. A vaulted ceiling features an enormous historic 1877 map of Delft and its surroundings, connecting the station with the city hall that is currently under construction. Within the station hall, walls and columns are adorned with a contemporary re-interpretation of Delft Blue tiles. In 2017, you will be able to walk directly from the station into the city hall.

The glass skin of the building is designed to reflect the Dutch skies. The panels of fused glass with lens-like spheres reference a vernacular window design that can be seen throughout the historic city. The combination and rhythm of open panels of high performance glass and closed fused glass panels enable a high degree of energy efficiency.

Throughout the design process the building volume has been shaved and reformed to create a compact, highly efficient building form. The lowered roof lines at the corners provide a gradual transition towards the existing small-scale development of the Delft city centre and the adjacent Wester Quarter. Incisions in the glass volume form a pattern of alleyways and courtyards, which are themselves inspired by the intricate structure of Delft itself.

The station hall is a part of the first phase of the development of the station and municipal office. When the old railway viaduct will be demolished in 2017, and the city hall and entire municipal offices completed, the whole complex will be open to the public.
