Golf Drivers That Stand Out And Get Celebrity Attention

When looking for the top ten golf drivers, there are several ways to find out which ones keep the cash registers ringing. One is to turn to review sites or check out the top selling items being bought from retail stores. Another way to find out may be to read golf magazines and journals, where you’d find the top rated golf drivers singled out for criteria as sleek looks, distance, accuracy, and so on. Other golfers cast sideways glances at what their golf buddies and fellow players are using, while assessing what will feel right and suit their playing level. It also won’t do any harm to find out what the legendary golfers are using on the courses.

Certain brands of golf drivers stand out when it comes to distance, accuracy, and forgiveness. If you haven’t really reached the intermediate level in your golf game, you probably wouldn’t mind a driver with a strange sound for as long as it can offer control in every shot. Then again, most golfers want everything right in the equipment they use, including a powerful sound and superb look and performance, as if they’re wielding a great weapon. Modern drivers come with a titanium head that lets players hit straighter and long than traditional equipment. Regular golfers occasionally heading for the greens for some weekend golf are happy with solid equipment that enables them to hit straight and consistent drives. They satisfy most players the moment they pick up the golf driver and swing it. Among the forgiving options that can let new players exude confidence on the fairways are the Callaway Big Bertha Titanium 360 and Callaway FT-5 Driver. Some golfers whose game has deteriorated over the years have cited that certain drivers, like the Ping Rapture, have helped them in their game. Important factors like distance, predictable contact, shot shape come into the picture for golfers seeking to improve their game.

There are, of course, technical marvels that may be found in the bags of celebrity or PGA Tour golf players. Many companies invest a great deal on research and incorporate modern technology in their drivers, and it’s evident. Examples are the quality drivers of Mizuno (with its customizable option that offers 45 different trajectory settings), the dynamic Nike SQ (Sasquatch) Sumo 5000 that professional players cite for its accuracy, distance, and forgiveness. It’s one of those drivers with top-quality materials (titanium and carbon composite crown). Another favored option, the versatile Titleist Pro Titanium 905T, has been improved. The company has come out with enhanced versions of drivers with larger head size, greater ball speed, and increased forgiveness. Indeed, there are technological wonders both for aspiring and seasoned golfers. Other options that have been tried both by regular pro golfers and famous globetrotting PGA Tour players are TaylorMade (with its adjustable flight technology) and Cleveland HiBore XL (a forgiving driver with an unusual yet elegant look, and is suited for players with average to high handicaps who want their balls to fly longer and straighter). These are but some of the names that have been used by celebrity golfers as well as regular individuals out to enjoy some golfing fun and competition.

Beauty is Only Skin Deep?

Photo models and cover girls don’t always have perfect profiles, lovely eyes, or sexy lips. Yet their skin looks smooth and shiny providing a nice appearance in overall. Skin is obviously the most factor determining one’s beauty.

When we were teens or still in our twenties, we almost had no skin problem. No wrinkles, no aging spots… no dryness. However, have you ever seen a 75 year old lady still having a smooth and youthful skin? I did. Some people have the aging effect on their skin earlier, and others later. So, what makes the difference?

Women always dream to have a youthful skin. Every woman does. Fortunately, it does not end up a dream only. You can have that youthful look, no matter how old you are. Beauty is actually not only skin deep…. it is even deeper, depends on what you have ‘under’ your skin. Also never forget the fact that beautiful skin is healthy skin. . So everything you do (for your skin), do it for the health of your skin!

A proper diet keeps longer your skin’s youth

Your skin indicates your health in general. If you skin looks poor, you may lack some nutrition for your body. Improper nutrition can even cause some illness.

Milk is good for new cells formation for it’s rich of fatty acid. Drinking 6 to 8 glasses of water daily moistens your skin and cleanses cells in your body. Vitamins A and B are essential; they are found in green and yellow veggies, fruit, cheese, eggs, margarine, liver and milk.

Vitamin C avoids dry skin and scalp problems such as dandruff. Fresh fruit and vegetables are the best resources for vitamin C. If you find yourself easily bruised, you may lack vitamin E. Dull hair and dry skin may indicate lack of iron. Vegetables and red meat are iron resources. Protein is absolutely needed for your skin and for your health in general.

Chocolates may cause acne in some cases. If you easily have acne, avoid food containing iodine, such as seafood, peanut, spinach, and cabbage. Caffeine and alcohol can effect vasodilatations, then enlarge your skin pores.

In spite of these facts, a proper diet does not replace the need of outer skin care. You still have to keep your skin cleanliness. Use proper cosmetics for your typical skin. Find the proper way to treat your skin. Trust these all will create an overall skin beauty.

Food Allergy Symptoms – Would You Recognise Them?

Could you be suffering from a food allergy?

* Do you suffer from skin reactions: flushing, itching, hives, eczema?
* Do you have gastrointestinal problems: Irritable Bowel Syndrome, abdominal pain, nausea, diarrhoea, vomiting or bloating?
* Do you get respiratory system effects such as hayfever like symptoms including watery, itchy eyes, stuffy nose, sneezing, and difficulty breathing or wheezing?
* Have you ever had anaphylactic shock (anaphylaxis)?

If you can answer yes to any of these questions then you could possibly be suffering from a food allergy. So, what is the difference between a food allergy and a food intolerance? Put simply a food allergy involves your immune system and an intolerance does not. A food allergy is an abnormal immune system response to the introduction of a food, an ordinarily harmless substance into the body. A reaction can occur within minutes, or a few hours, after the food is ingested. Whereas, an intolerance to a food is an adverse reaction that does not involve the immune system. Reactions can be immediate or delayed by up to 20 hours after a food is eaten. Reactions could be any or all from the list above and will vary from person to person and even between the foods they are allergic to.

Some people are allergic to only one food and eliminating this food from their diet is a relatively simple step. Unfortunately some people are allergic to multiple foods and maintaining a healthy balanced diet becomes a daily challenge. Eating out and socialising for those with multiple food allergies can become virtually impossible – especially when they are so allergic that the life threatening condition anaphylaxis is a possibility should they accidentally be exposed to an allergen.

Food intolerance is often confused with food allergy, but it is important to differentiate between the two because the diagnosis and management of these conditions differ. If you have family members who have an allergy then the chances of you or your children developing allergies is significantly increased. People with a family history of allergies are more likely to develop food and other types of allergies, although not necessarily to the same allergen! You also have an increased risk of developing an allergy if a member of your family suffers from asthma, hay fever, food allergy, eczema or hives.

Almost any food can cause a reaction, but 90% of food allergies are caused by 8 common foods: milk, eggs, peanuts, soy, wheat, fish, shellfish and tree nuts. Allergies to sesame seed and kiwifruit are becoming more common. More and more people are discovering that they may be allergic or intolerant to gluten (the protein found in wheat and wheat products) – latest figures suggest that 1 in 10 people could be sensitive to gluten.

If you are suffering from any of the symptoms in the list at the beginning of this article, it is important to note that they have many possible causes and you should consult your health care professional to rule out any other underlying medical conditions before embarking on food elimination diets. It can be useful to keep a food diary and make note of the foods you eat and a list of symptoms. The diary will assist your doctor or specialist with your diagnosis.

Marketing Systems for Retail Shopping Centres

When you lease or manage shopping centres, the marketing of the tenant mix to optimise sales will be a constant focus for you. In this economic climate the tenant mix should be shaped and comprehensively marketed to the shopping demographic and community that visits the centre. In this way the property manager helps the tenants to optimise sales and therefore minimises vacancy threat. In the end result the landlord benefits with a successful shopping centre.

So every shopping centre should have an established Marketing System and Plan for the coming 12 to 18 months. It is a ‘rolling’ process where things are planned and implemented to maximise the shopper interest and the sales results. This ‘plan’ should be incorporated into the business plan for the property.

The shopping seasons are ‘planned for’ well in advance, utilising tools and concepts such as:

  • Stimulate the shopper interest with contests and celebrity visits to the property on peak shopping days – that is usually Thursdays to Saturdays.
  • Let community groups set up booths in the mall to promote donations, membership or contributions
  • Let some of your retailers set up special selling areas in the mall to complement sales and add to shopper interest
  • If the local community is impacted by tourism or holiday shoppers, incorporate that focus into your marketing plans
  • Build on the identity of the shopping centre by branding ever piece of promotional material with the ‘name’ of the shopping centre.
  • If your property is located near rail stations, airports, or bus depots, make sure you are advertising in those locations for both your property and the tenant mix.
  • Develop flyers to drop into letterboxes in your shopping demographic
  • Every shopping bag should get a flyer or ‘bag stuffer’ of another offer or contest
  • Have complementary tenants cooperate with each other for extended selling across the core theme (e.g. ladies fashion can be cross selling across shoes, clothes, cosmetics, and jewellery)
  • Get students from the local school or college to display their art as part of an annual competition.
  • Involve local radio, TV, and newspapers with your shopping centre events. You may need to run some adverts to get their interest or involvement
  • Research your shoppers 3 times a year to identify what they are looking for in product offering and tenant mix
  • Split the shopping year into a series of special promotions such as shoes, eating and drinking, household appliances, jewellery, electrical goods, computer and gaming, and fashion.

When you think about it, there are some good reasons to promote the property; understand the community and then tap into their needs.
