Recycling To Keep Our Planet Healthy

We’ve all heard the warnings; acid rain, global warming, landfills without any room, and on and on. We don’t recycle because it’s the “in” thing to do; we recycle because we don’t have any other options if we plan to leave the planet for generations to come. When you think of recycling you should really think about the whole idea; reduce, reuse and recycle. Think about it; if you don’t need it, don’t get it. If you have to get it, get something that can be used again and if you get something that needs to be recycled by the professionals, put it in the recycle bin. These are easy concepts and yet there are still people out there who ignore the signs. The signs aren’t just the ones that bare the recycle logo, but the signs that the ocean...

How To Develop Soccer Juggling Skills

Juggling is one of the most entertaining skills in soccer but ironically, a player rarely gets the chance to juggle, or have the reason to do so, during the match. A basic rule of soccer says that if you want your team to keep possession for as long as possible, and today’s game is based around prolonged possession, the ball must stay on the ground as much as possible. Obviously, while juggling you would have to lift it from the ground, which is why the skill itself isn’t very useful in itself. That’s the reason why a lot of coaches tend to dismiss it or overlook it in training sessions, thinking that they’d rather train the players to something that has practicable use in a match. And that’s what I believe to be one of the biggest mistakes in coaching, especially in youth coaching: ignori...

Climate Change Solutions In Developing Nations Require Diplomacy, Not Dogma

Given the recent spate of advertising by Britain’s leading supplier of gas, one might be forgiven for believing that gas was a ‘green’ product. Make no mistake, gas is a fossil fuel. Its burning flame is blue –apparently so it can be recognized when it’s turned on. It emits black carbon into the atmosphere which contributes to global warming and thus, the climate change that’s constantly in the news these days. But such is the rush to jump on the ‘green bandwagon’ that developed nations run the risk of believing that what they are doing is enough to solve the problem in the west. This is whilst emerging industrialists in developing nations continue to pollute at an alarming rate. Although historically, the truth is that the west has been responsible for creating most of the pollution, risk...
