Want to Grow Taller? Practice Kicking

Kicking of course is the act of forcefully using one’s legs to achieve some end, whether it be practicing a martial arts derived move, or kicking a soccer ball.

As we’ve discussed elsewhere, exercise and targeted stretching on key areas such as the legs and spine can result in stretching which effectively increases height. This must also be the case of kicking then correct? After all, your legs can’t be put through much more forceful effort than a powerful kicking motion.

The short answer is yes, kicking motions over a long period of time could almost certainly have the benefit of stretching out your leg muscles, increasing height. The long answer though is that it’s probably not the most savvy way of gaining height.

First let’s look at the science behind this phenomenon. By studying people who use kicking motions repeatedly, most notably kickboxers, we see that their legs are on average one to two inches longer than normal. Likewise, football kick specialists have a longer kicking leg than their other leg, through hundreds of reps of kicking a football each day.

The trouble is that to replicate these results takes both a greater deal of time than other ‘grow taller’ exercises, as well as a greater deal of effort, as repeated kicking can be extremely taxing on the body.

To gain the results achieved by these athletes, one would typically have to kick hundreds of times per day, even as many as a thousand times, and this can easily take upwards of an hour. It’s a great workout with its own benefits, but just in terms of gaining height, it’s a lot more effort and time expenditure than other routines with similar results.

If you are interested in taking up kicking for increasing your height, or as a combination of full on exercise with the added benefit of height gain down the line, you should purchase a good kick boxing style bag.

You’ll need to work on both legs in equal doses, typically doing 20 short snap kicks on each leg before switching. Do this about 20 times for each leg then take a break. You should repeat the same workout routine again later in the day, resulting in 800-1000 kicks per day on each leg.

If you’re already a soccer player or practice a form of martial arts or other training regime that includes a high volume of kicking, it certainly can’t hurt your height to continue doing so.

Kicking in one form or another with the express intent of growing taller may not be the most logical choice though. Consider doing it by way of other means, like the ones just mentioned if you’d like to try it, and not solely for its height gaining benefits.…

The economy is rough nowdays, and with mass lay-offs and plenty of discouragement, its a good idea to look for career advice to change your focus to something you can be passionate about.

Blood and Fire: An Astrological Perspective on the Salvation Army, Part 1

The mere name “Salvation Army” evokes powerful images of aid in times of crisis, charity in times of need, mercy and transformation in the hours of one’s personal deepest, darkest hour. The Salvation Army’s role in social reform during the latter half of the 19th century cannot be underestimated. William Booth, the Salvation Army’s self styled General, who stood in a point of history when suffering was both overwhelming and unnecessary, saw the world in need of radical change Like Petrarch some 400 years before him, Booth was adamant he would make a difference. Together with his wife Catherine, their eight children and the support of close friends, William Booth set out to bring salvation to the lives of the hopelessly poor, the destitute, the homeless and the hungry. From humble beginnings in London’s east end, today the Salvation Army operates in 111 countries, utilising 175 languages and has a well established reputation for being the first organization to arrive in the aftermath of disaster, providing clothes, food, shelter and healing words. At the time of writing, the Salvation Army continues its work in Iraq where it provides food, clothing and shelter to a land ripped apart by war. “The people of Iraq love the Salvation Army because it brings the message of the love of God to the Iraqi people,” said a Shia Muslim spokesperson, demonstrating the Salvation Army’s well deserved reputation for transcending all barriers to bring comfort to the suffering.

The Salvation Army uses a flag with an eight sided, yellow star on a red background with a blue border. Originally, the star was meant to be the sun but the Booth’s changed it to a star as it offended a branch of the Zoroastrian’s when the Salvation Army was first in India. Astrologers would recognise a double grand cross in the star and an emphasis on the fourth and eighth harmonic. John Addey wrote about 8th harmonic: “The numbers four and eight have a special reference to outward events and conditions.” We regard squares in a chart as indicating conflict. The Salvation Army so embroiled itself in conflict that its joint founders, William and Catherine, manifested a child (Kate-see her chart) who had the Salvation Army symbol in her chart shaping–which seems nothing short of miraculous and a testament to the struggles the family faced in their war on sin and poverty.

The Booths achieved so much in their lives together that it is overwhelmingly tempting to uncover their motivation to change the course of history. What makes ordinary people extraordinary? What makes a hero take risks, not just as opportunity arises or once in a lifetime, but over and over again? What, astrologically, can account for such phenomenal success in the extreme adversity the Booths faced nearly every day of their early ministry?

The man who would be the Salvation Army’s Founding Father and first General was born on 10 April 1829 in Nottingham. His own father, Samuel, was a man dogged by financial disaster …

Education and the Complete Individual

Education is something that many have said much about. Most of these are complex or vague. Consider the Greek philosopher Aristotle's saying that education is ' an ornament in prosperity ' and ' a refugee in adversity '. There have been a great many attempts to explain this description, but none have quite succeeded in satisfying my curiosity. Alternately, this is what the English essayist Joseph Addison has to say on education: What sculpture is to a block of marble, education is to a human soul. This too, has a great many explanations and illustrations. But does it really tell us what education is? Does it tell us why we need education? Not really, since the concept of the soul is, till date, a shadowy area. So how can we begin to comprehend what everyone claims is essential to life nowdays? To put it simply, education is a process of training our mind so that we can apply it in a field of our choice: which is why we have education not as a single seamless entity, but as a whole made up of various divisions: music education, scientific and technological education, art education, even teacher education!

Education can be considered similar to picking and eating a fruit. Picking a particular fruit on the tree is akin to choosing a field to get an education of. When we bite into it, we get our first taste of the subject. As we chew on the bitten proportion, we begin to understand its various aspects – the tastes, textures, intricacies and complexes of it – and when we are ready to move on to the next portion, we swallow what we have assimilated so far so that it can be used for further application. The tree we get the fruit from is the entire body of past thinkers' teachings and the voice that tells us which fruit to pick is the interpreter of that knowledge: the teacher.

Through the lifelong course of education (no, it's not like school or college which ends after a fixed period of time), we get to know about things that always were, still are and always will be around us, waiting to be recognized and acknowledged . Light plays a central role in education – both literally and metaphorically – for visual inputs are the best learnt and without light – of the sun or electrical – we would be missing out on a whole world of knowledge. In fact, this is where phrases like 'light of knowledge', 'throw light on the matter', 'kept in the dark' and so on came from.

You might be thinking, how can we narrow the infinite field of knowledge to select what we will need or want to know? This is where the part on 'training the mind' comes in. The mind, as psychology tells us, is the center of cognitive institutions which enables consciousness, thinking, perception and judgment. It is the kitchen for the information we acquire, where we can …

Science is now sharing a space with the Urdu speakers too. With the help of the former dean and adviser of Ministry of Health and Family Welfare how it got introduced has been discussed here.

His year's long research has enabled him in observing the fact that in every stream, mother tongue should be reflected as the medium of education. For the sake of the kids he pushed on the translators to make use of extremely simple and easy to read language in the translation.

In the workshop, Prof Ansari praised and congratulated each of the participants who took an active part in the translation program. Moreover he distributed credentials to contributors and the participants.

Her Most Famous Painting (Oriental Poppies) – Georgia O’Keeffe

The American painter Georgia O’Keeffe (November 1887-March 1986) was a pioneering ‘Modernist.’ Her unique approach defied all the accepted norms of painting and gave a new definition to the ‘American Modern Art.’ Owing to her competence, American Art attained fame and recognition in creatively competent Europe. Flowers fascinated Georgia and they were her favorite subject on canvas. O’Keeffe painted “Oriental Poppies” in 1928. This stunning work was declared a groundbreaking, art masterpiece.

Georgia O’Keeffe described her painting as a product of what she perceived in her mind and felt in her heart. In “Oriental Poppies,” she depicts two giant poppy flowers. Measuring 30″ x 40″, this oil painting is an explosion of brilliant colors on a vast canvas, lending a mesmerizing effect. O’Keefe used dazzling red and orange as the main color of the petals. The hollowed centre and the inner contours of the flowers are painted in deep purple. The skillful shading and velvety finish of the petals accentuates the vibrancy of the flowers. “Oriental Poppies” almost looks like a close up photograph. O’Keeffe did not give any background to the painting, to artfully draw focus onto the flowers. The absence of context in the painting presents them in a new light as pure abstracts. “Oriental Poppies” exudes a startling pull, as if casting a hypnotic spell on the viewer.

Georgia O’Keeffe believed that due to the fast-paced lives people live, they merely glance at flowers, but never really observed their exquisiteness. She wished to give such rushing people experience and the feel of the true beauty of flowers. In her words, “If I could paint the flower exactly as I see it no one would see what I see because I would paint it small like the flower is small. So I said to myself – I’ll paint what I see – what the flower is to me but I’ll paint it big and they will be surprised into taking time to look at it – I will make even busy New Yorkers take time to see what I see of flowers.” O’Keeffe chose to paint on a huge canvas with an outburst of bold colors, to astonish the viewers and to introduce them to the wonder of nature. In her bid, she managed to capture the essence of poppies with eloquence.

Many art researchers believed that O’Keeffe’s “Oriental Poppies” was an answer to the zoomed in technique adapted by Alfred Stieglitz in ‘Modern Photography.’ The magnificent painting speaks volumes of O’Keefe’s talent and artistic vision. Georgia’s delightful representation of two ordinary flowers generated widespread admiration and was considered as one of her most memorable works. It is now a part of a collection at the University of Minnesota Art Museum, Minneapolis.…

Image Admission Essays- Just How Important Are They?

Every college has it's own admissions criteria – so how do you know how to prepare while you're still at high school?

Fortunately, for most colleges, they are seeking students who fit certain criteria. Even if you're in your final year of high school, it's not too late to make changes that will help you write a winning college essay application.

There are two areas that college staff will be looking at, academic achievement and extracurricular involvement.

Academic Achievement

You already know that your academic attainment is going to be important in getting a college place. The college staff will be checking over your SAT scores and grade point rates to see whether you're the kind of student that can succeed with them.

They'll also be looking for any other special talents – such as excelling in the area of ​​music or art.

References or recommendations will be requested from your teachers or school principal – so it's helpful if they are aware of and can verify your interests and activities outside of school. Interestingly, if you come from a reputatable high school, some of the more competitive colleges may take this into account.

Extra curricular activities

Your college is looking for an academically capable, well-rounded individual who can shape and mold to be one of the future leaders of the country.

Here, of increasing importance is your involvement outside of high school. With only 20% of students being accepted into the most competitive colleges, your application will need to stand out from the crowd.

For example, it's been shown that students who get involved in the debating or speech teams are more likely to be offered a college place.

Whilst getting too involved will not help you, you will need to be able to write down something about your extra curricular involvements. This can range from leading a sports team, helping with the school newspaper, being class president or any significant leadership experience.

Other Factors

There's a lot of pressure on colleges to be fair in their admissions process. However, this can lead to an unfairness to other students. For example, taking a student from an under represented minority or State, is active discrimination for minorities.

If you have a family member who went to the college, be sure to mention it. Children of college alumni may also be favored in the application process.

And do not forget the obvious – show your interest in the college by attending their tours, requesting information and speaking to alumni who live in your area.

Best of Luck!

Sometimes it's easy to forget our own achievements and involvements – ask for advice from friends or family when completing your admission essay and do not make it too polished that your own character does not shine through! …

Very Top Five Skills For Journalists

Did someone not once say "if the pen is mightier than the sword, then journalism is the whetstone"? I'm sure somebody must have done.

Anyways, do you want to check out the skills zone for current trends or indications of paradigm shifts? By the way, if you can use the words 'paradigm shift' without your face sagging into a grimace under the weight of all the sarcasm, then you will make an excellent political journalist.

Journalism is a cavalcade of caustic, Faustian drudgery. It even says that in the dictionary (Any journalists reading this will not check, they'll just copy and paste it and take my citation for granted.)

Journalists have a surprising combination of tenacity and laziness. That is to say, they flatter themselves with the belief that they have the ability to discern the fieriest stories from the misleading, irrelevant and uninteresting chaff. In practice this means they're superciliously scan through a report and make up their 'story' by pouncing on one wildly unpredictable strand and spinning it out to cover three pages.

There are many different types of journalists, from political journalists (who report how terrible politicians are) right through to columnists (who give opinions on how terrible everyone (including politicians) is.). Regardless of what sort of journalist you end up being, you'll need easy mental access to the following grab bag of skills.

5. Headline creation

Headlines are expected to get you to buy the newspaper, and they should hook readers in a punchy way.

Getting the words to rhyme is excellent form, as is including the sentences of puns that would disgrace even the worst sort of dinner party bore. For examine, imagine if John Locke, the philosopher and physician of the 17th century, had been seen wearing a dress. The headline would not say "Locke seen wearing a dress," it would be "LOCKE FROCK SHOCK." And the journalists would go into paroxysms of delight.

4. Misrepresentation

This is most common in areas in which most people do not have an adequate knowledge to evaluate the worth of a concept on their own, such as science, medicine or law. The brilliant thing is that the journalist who's writing the article does not have to understand it either!

Let's say you want to write a story about GM foods, or a pharmaceutical product. All you have to do is find a scientist with a crazy opinion about how long-life cabbages give you brain cancer and present it along conventional conventional wisdom (that they do not) and suggest that these two opinions represent the two leading equally-weighted alternatives in a contentious field, and ta-da! Instant hysteria, and the chance to write dozens of follow-up articles on how YOU, the readers, reacted to hearing the 'news' about cabbages, letters from concerned parents, discussions between experts on the pros and cons of each side of the argument, etc etc.

And you can not be sued for libel even though you have actually invented a scare out of nothing, because, …
