The Single Airman Programming Initiative is an Air Force program, endorsed by the office of the Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force, administered by Air Force Personnel Center, and operated through installation Force Support Squadrons. This program is geared towards Airmen to aid them in finding recreational and social events to attend. “The Single Airmen Programs Initiative’s objective is to improve technology and communication within FSS programs and activities,” said Karalee Duckworth, 325th Force Support Squadron marketing commercial sponsorship manager. “We provide a wide variety of social and recreation opportunities through FSS recreational activities, and offer morale, welfare and readiness life-skills classes. These classes create a single Airman culture that supports the whole person, focusing on a healthy lifestyle.” The goal is to provide resources that foster a strong culture, mission, and sense of community for single Airmen, Duckworth added. Started in 2012, the Single Airman Programming Initiative is currently providing classes and events to Airmen, most recently hosting scuba classes.

Barrett & MacKayGetty Images/All Canada Photos It’s all about the suction-cup pads on the male beetle’s legs Male diving beetles have adhesive plungers on their forelegs that allow them to hold onto their female mating partners, a recent study published in Journal of the Royal Society Interface reports. And the effectiveness of those plungers could point ways forward for the design of human underwater equipment. The team of researchers from Taiwan saw that female underwater beetles in the dystiscidae family squirmed to avoid copulation with an undesirable suitor, triggering a need for the adaptation in the males legs. The team of scientists, led by Dr Kai-Jung Chi from National Chung Hsing University, compared the gripping features of two species of male aquatic beetles one that had spatula-shaped bristles and a more evolved diving beetle that had suction-cup-shaped pads. Researchers found that the primitive beetles released a glue-like secretion, but the beetles with the circular plungers on their legs were able to withstand seven times more force than the others proving that the suction cup posed a sexual advantage. Scientists hope that the success of the male aquatic beetles adhesive legs will help inspire innovations in aquatic equipment such as the attachments used by underwater rescuers or scuba divers.

So one thing were doing is basing all the fish and sea life you meet on real creatures. Taking their actual behaviors and condensing them down into really interesting interactions with the player. There is gonna be an element of reality to it. But where the game will take you I think we will be able to take you somewhere really magical. I told Nava that the first thing that tipped me off about this was the diver. With the glowing marks on his suit and his oval-shaped helmet, the diver doesnt look like he came from our world. That speaks to one real important part of the game: Its not a simulator, he said. Its not about scuba diving; its not about air tanks and air gauges. Its about the experience and the magic of being in the environment at the expense of all other things. Thats really the focus of the gameplay that were designing. How do you capture that, and not have to worry about the realities of being underwater, just that magic? A meaningful way to interact with the sea creatures Giant Squid wants to immerse players in the oceans ecosystem, where all kinds of fishes, sharks, and whales dwell. One point Nava brought up was thebrutal way weusually treat animals in video games: We kill and skin them for supplies, or to unlock new upgrades for our character.

Scuba Diving Ear Equalization Basics – Florida Sportsman

Unfamiliar with the process of equalizing, this sometimes can come as a surprise. Granted, it can be quite the nuisance for beginners and advanced divers alike. Of course, having the right gear makes a world of difference. A good mask (low volume) for deeper dives, a well-purposed set of fins, a weight belt, and a wet suit to match the water temperature, all help a diver feel more comfortable and at home in the water. The more comfortable, the more naturally equalization will come. When it comes down to it though, knowing the proper procedures for equalizing is essential. If the proper equalization technique fails to be preformed, serious damage could occur in the ears. Florida Sportsman member fishingkid315 raises a few questions in regards to equalization, in Depth and Breathing . Here are a few techniques that are very familiar with most divers: Valsalva Maneuver- Pinch your nostrils closed and blow gently through your nose. Frenzel Maneuver – Preform a very gentle Valsalva maneuver by breathing against pinched nostrils and swallowing at the same time. Swallow or Wiggle Your Jaw- While keeping the regulator in your mouth, swallow or wiggle your jaw. A diver should equalize before they feel pain or discomfort in their ears, and you can never over-equalize. View source: Scuba Diving Ear Equalization Basics – Florida Sportsman

Diving Gear Even when scuba diving was restricted dive gear could be found throughout Greece. In smaller towns it may have been difficult to find items such as tanks, regulators and compressors to provide air and mixed gasses such as Nitrox to fill tanks, but the basics were always plentiful, easily found and affordable. This meant that masks, fins, snorkels, wet suits, weights and underwater lights and knives were ubiquitous. Spear guns and their accessories such as spare spear shafts and spear points were also ever present with tourist shops and even supermarkets carrying these items. Greeks love to spear fish and with the price of fresh fish being so expensive in Greece its no wonder that people are motivated to go and spear fish for their dinner. By the late 80s early 90s scuba diving was catching on among the locals. Dive schools connected to dive stores were opening in Athens and the other cities and persons of both genders and of all ages were partaking in what had been considered an exotic sport geared toward wealthy tourists. Mind you that many of the scuba students had grown up near beaches and had been snorkeling for years and were well aware of how to dive, albeit by holding their breath. It was now time to start breathing by using a tank which is far safer to holding ones breath to stay below. View more – A Complete Guide to Scuba Diving in Greece | GreekReporter.com

I suggest watching the trailer [embedded below] as a refresher before reading his comments. Creating auniversal myth Abzu appears somewhat aimless. The video doesnt present any clear goals beyond just exploring the ocean. According to Nava, the team did thison purpose, partly because the game is still in its early phases of development, but also because they didnt want to give away too much. Above: Matt Nava Image Credit: Giant Squid What were trying to do at this point is to keep the details of the story a secret, said Nava. The broad strokes, or the concept of the game, is that you play as this diver who goes deeper into the ocean, discovers secrets, interacts with the environments and the creatures.

It was now time to start breathing by using a tank which is far safer to holding ones breath to stay below. A great percentage of those learning, at least to my eyes, were girls of high school years and older showing that the divings appeal in Greece is gender neutral and not geared only toward macho types. With the seas that Greece has, this makes perfect sense. The gear found in Greek dive shops today rivals the gear found in New York, Los Angeles, Maui or any dive resort in the Caribbean or any other place on the planet. Those choosing to buy their gear in Greece for future uses will not have a problem with the selection and range of prices for whatever it is they are looking for, even for higher ticket items such as air compressors. Servicing and repairing the gear is also not a problem in places such as Athens since major manufacturers have agents or distributors there who can address almost all service issues. To provide one example, I had a problem with a Finnish Suunto dive computer which took in water two years ago. It was promptly repaired in Athens, the speed of the repair surpassing what one expects even in New York. Needless to mention that I was pleasantly surprised with the speed and quality of the service, especially because I was able to get back into the water without delay. Dive Centers Photo credit: Rachel Portele In addition to diving on air, which youre inhaling and exhaling as you read this, mixed gases, otherwise referred to as technical diving gasses are available throughout Greece.

Taking in the party after a dive is an experience which makes diving at Paradise all the more fun. During summer of 2013 I visited another dive center at LiaBeach in Mykonos, which by car is about 35-40 minutes from the center of town. For those whove not been to Lia, its a picturesque and quiet beach, with one taverna being its sole source of food and beverages. Unlike Paradise, there are no bars, convenience stores or showers. There is no public transportation to take you to Lia, unlike the bus and boat which go to Paradise. You arrive either by boat, car, taxi or motor scooter.

What Part of My Business Should I Outsource First

A medical transcriptionist working in a medica...A lot of mentors will tell you three important things about running a business – delegate, delegate, and delegate! Sure starting up a business and delegation may seem contradictory at first, but the longer you stay on business, the more you will realize that it’s impossible to keep doing everything yourself.

It’s not even an issue of you overworking yourself – the quality of your work is bound to deteriorate every time you take upon additional challenges.

But how do you outsource parts of your business without compromising the quality of work. Because as we all know, when you’re a startup, cash is most often the biggest trouble maker. And when you’re strapped in your finances, hiring another person to do a job doesn’t seem to make any sense. Even with this in mind, outsourcing or delegation shouldn’t be delayed though. Successful business owners never did. They were just smart about it and tried their best to get the most out of the buck.

Things you have to consider in outsourcing first

Tasks that are your waterloo

Whether it’s coding, design or marketing, the first thing you have to consider are the areas in your business where you are lousy. Keep in mind that your time as a founder is divine. Treat it as currency. Therefore, if you’re spending way too much time on tasks that others are surely able to accomplish in less, then it’s time for you to weight your time/currency with the hourly pay of another person.

Repetitive tasks

These are usually the tasks that it doesn’t matter if you’ve mastered everything about it – it will still take huge chunks of time. Picture data gathering and filling them into a spreadsheet. Chances are, people are more than willing and capable of handling these tasks for very less the amount of your time. As someone who is a top executive of a budding company, you have the luxury to avoid the mundane tasks. You are the business owner, if you’re also going to do repetitive labor all day, then it’s defeating the purpose of turning into an entrepreneur in the first place.

 Things that you hate to do

It doesn’t matter if you’re good at it, if it’s really easy to do or what have you. If deep in your guts you hate doing a certain task, then by all means, delegate it to someone else. Doing something you’re not fond of automatically means a major drop in productivity. As the owner, you have to perk to choose the right job for you. Also, doing so always means that more cost efficiency for your time because you waste time being grouchy. It also ensure that you don’t damage the morale of people around you. As the leader of a business, a lot of people depends in your outlook in work.

Don’t give away the core of your business

Being the owner of a business means you can pretty much outsource any tasks out of your entire business process – except for the direct source of your business. Because you may end up creating a competitor instead of a partner.

Is it Worth Buying YouTube Views

English: Matty G the Musician doing a One Man ...Social media accounts, including YouTube, are a great way to spread awareness of a brand. Accruing a large number of YouTube views, for example, allows users to broadcast their content directly on the feeds of what can potentially be a massive audience. One can accrue views through the painstaking work involved in social media marketing, made all the more difficult without having an audience base to start with. Alternatively, one can simply purchase views of your YouTube videos and forgo the work of having do to so on one’s own. When considering whether or not to buy YouTube views, it’s important to consider a few things about what exactly buying views will achieve.

The benefits of buying views

By choosing to buy views on YouTube rather than accruing them naturally, users can save themselves the hassle of having to establish credibility and relevance from scratch. Even without a single viral video post, a channel with a video viewed 200,000 will appear far more credible and important to viewers, which will increase subscribers count quickly. People who see channel pages with large numbers of views with posts that have high like counts are apt to take those account more seriously. For those that have already established themselves but want to inflate their audience, buying more views will do exactly that with minimal effort.

So what’s the downside?

While buying views offers a host of benefits and can save one a great deal of work in building up an audience on one’s own, it does not come without certain risks. For starters, there is absolutely no guarantee that bought views will be interested in the content of the channel owner. Large number of viewers generally, but do not always, translate to posts getting similarly large numbers of likes. Normally this rule holds true, because the people viewing and deciding on whether or not they like posts only choose to follow channels that they like. When a post shows up in a subscriber’s feed, it gets liked provided that the post is actually seen, is of interest to the viewer, and is appealing enough to warrant being liked. If bought views are not interested in the content of the new channel’s posts, and these posts in turn receive little or no likes, then the brand’s relevance and credibility is significantly diminished. To be an active member of the social media community, it’s important to generate interest for the brand. If no one is liking and commenting on posts or involving the account in relevant conversation, then money spent on views has been wasted.

Buy Twitter Followers and Boost your Twitter Persona

Twitter Streams

One great way to boost the popularity of your Twitter account is to gain more followers. However, doing so is not as easy as it sounds. While there are a handful of Twitter users that indiscriminately follow every single account that they see, a bigger population of the Twitter-verse looks for genuinely interesting content before following an account that they have to personal connection to. You can use different techniques to gain more followers but these traditional means take time. If you are looking for a fast and easy way to get more followers for your Twitter account, then you should simply buy Twitter followers cheap. There are different companies that offer this kind of service. You will not even have to shell out much money in order to reach your target. As soon as you make your investment, you will see your number of followers grow right before your eyes.

As with other social media platforms, more followers mean that more people will be exposed to your posts. Having a solid follower will give other Twitter users the impression that your updates and tweets are actually interesting and useful. If your account has a good number of followers, it will be so much easier for you to reel more people in. If you think that you have a good number of followers now, then you would be surprised at how much more you can get when you buy Twitter followers. With the number of followers that you will have, it will be a breeze for you to generate organic follows. This will start a chain of events that will end up with you having tenfold followers for your Twitter account.

If you are looking to add credibility to your tweets, then you should buy Twitter followers. The number of followers that you have is a silent testimony to the quality of content that you generate. If you are a business owner, having a good number of followers will translate to more sales and more loyal customers. If you are aiming to be an online personality, then having more followers will help you solidify your reputation as a must-follow account. Unless you want to keep your account personal and private, gaining more fans on Twitter will do you no harm. In exchange for a very small price to pay, you will be able to boost your popularity and credibility online.

You do not have to worry about your account being flagged down by Twitter because your service provider will be very wise about the process. The number of followers that you ordered will not be given to you in one go. They will be delivered to you intermittently, thus giving the impression that you are generating more follows naturally. You do not have to worry about compromising the security of your account either. Since you will be required to only give information that your provider needs to boost the number of your followers, your password and other account information will be kept safe and secure.

Thinking of setting up a home office

English: Home office with computersWorking from home is ideal for people who have done the 9 to 5 corporate job functions and want to pursue additional outside opportunities. As more and more people are choosing to make money online, they are looking for the best ways to set up a home office.

Setting up a home office is not a difficult task. However, there are some key things that these individuals will need to know and practice. For those who do not possess the essential computer skills and abilities, they may ask the help with their set-up. Starting off, the person will need the basics. Learning how to buy Twitter followers is critical in growing your presence. Listed below are three of the basic necessities for establishing a home office.

Computer or a Laptop

Before a home office can even be considered, the individual will need to obtain an electronic computer. Large, small or medium sized, a computer that can be used to assess the Internet is one of the basic essentials of establishing a home office. In cases where the person does not have a desktop computer, they may have the option of using a laptop. A laptop is also great for people who travel from one place to another. Consequently, they will not restrict activities from being done in countries that have an Internet or Wifi connection.

Internet

Conducting business online also involves having access to the Internet. Therefore, when starting off, the person will need to see what Internet carriers are available in the neighborhood. Though there are many business Internet plans available in the industry, people can get started with a regular plan for individuals instead of companies.

Phone Service

If the individual or society is preparing to take calls from customers, they will also need to fix a phone service. Phone services can vary greatly from one supplier to another. So it is important to shop around. The phone services can also vary in complexity so the new business owner will have to determine their needs prior to making a selection.

Improve Your Marketing With Great Communication

English: Jack Dorsey and Barack Obama at Twitt...Words can move mountains. If you think about it, the most powerful men and women in history all had good communication going for them. And if you’re someone who’s involved in marketing, there’s no skill you would want to have more than being able to communicate comfortably with your audience. For example, you may have the most number of Twitter followers in your niche, and you’ve built that audience by investing so much in freebies. But if you really lack of communication skills, then that large audience would remain at that size the moment you stop giving online users free stuff. And what good are numbers if you’re not able to convert these online users into paying customers? Nevertheless, it also doesn’t mean that you should forego the strategy to buy Twitter followers entirely. Good communication, when employed in marketing, is what motivates people into purchasing products and services.

With the sheer number of online blogs, setting you apart from the countless others all boils down to whom online users could connect the easiest. Good ideas, helpful content, and original compositions are nothing new nowadays. It might allot you the visitors, but it’s unlikely that people would get enough value in your blog to bookmark your blog, subscribe to your newsletter and eventually buy your products and services. Communication is more than stringing a bunch of words together. It entails well-thought of words arranged in a logical order that flows smoothly so that readers doesn’t even notice they’re about to finish reading your post. If you can consistently churn out articles that has its ideas communicated well, then you’re bound to build an audience filled with faithful followers.

Emotional Connection

As far as blog content value goes, writers who’s able to elicit emotional connection the most are the ones who’ll experience blog popularity the longest. We don’t need further proof of this. For instance, there are plenty of movies that are made with millions of budgets, with the greatest special effects and the biggest Hollywood stars. But none of those really matter if you you’ll look at the long list of the Academy award winners. Ultimately, it’s the movie that is able to establish the strongest emotional connection with its audience – whatever emotion that is – horror, drama, thrilled, etc… You must strive to attain the same emotional connection with every post that you publish.

Make Reading a Positive Experience

A fact sheet and a book uses the same medium to resonate their idea at hand – words. However, in a book, words are arranged well to maximize communication. A well-written post should be able to evaporate all the words that you’ve used and transport the reader to the experience you had while writing it. This is accomplished by writing content that has an organized thought, there is a progression, metaphors are utilized, and even so it doesn’t stray too far from the main idea. It should be as if the reader is reading a story even though what you’re really giving them is a fact sheet.

Conversational Tone

A blog is meant to build relationships with its readers. In real life, the way we do that is through face-to-face conversations. The same should go with how your blog posts are written. If you really want them to fathom the thoughts of someone, write them as if you’re talking to them in person.
