first_imgFestival season is almost over, but it’s still the hottest time of year. Beyond the obvious methods of sleep, hydration, and sunscreen, we’re here to give you a few tips to survive these next few weeks, so that you can return to work on Monday without feeling like a total sun-dried tomato.Without further ado, here are five easy ways to survive multi-day music festivals:5. Keep the bugs away by putting dryer sheets in your pocket.That’s right. If you put a Bounce dryer sheet in your pocket, it will naturally repel mosquitoes from eating you alive. It’s a simple, affordable solution to one of the most annoying problems that we almost always forget to anticipate in an outdoor setting. So as you’re packing for the weekend, you might as well pre-pack each pocket with a dryer sheet. For maximum results, wear cargo shorts.4. Drink 1 liter of coconut water every day.Coconut water is an extremely valuable source of hydration. It also facilitates digestion, reduces blood pressure, provides necessary nutrients, and is a natural hangover cure.According to lifehack.org, “The ingredients in coconut water are way more effective at hydrating the human body than those of sports and energy drinks. During rigorous exercise or extended periods of physical activity, the human body loses mineral-rich fluids. However, coconut water serves as an excellent replacement medium with 294 mg of potassium and 5 mg of natural sugar per glass, unlike your favorite sports drink that only contains half of the potassium content and five times the amount of processed sugar.”So put that sports drink away, and grab what the Earth has already provided for us. Make the liter last all day and you’ll be hydrated and ready to go all night long! Best to be consumed before bed and/or when you wake up.3. Sit down as much as possible, and close your eyes.Remember that it’s a marathon, not a sprint. If you have a foldable chair, bring it. Give those puppies a rest, they deserve it! Then close your eyes. You don’t need to fall sleep in order to get rest. If you close your eyes for just a few minutes, you will save your brain enough processing energy to last just a little bit longer later on. 2. Eat a plant-based diet. Food = Energy, so make it count. If you load yourself up with processed, fried, or saturated fats, your body won’t have enough energy to last its full potential. Instead, you should eat as many fruits and vegetables as possible to ensure that your body’s energy level will sustain through the long days and nights of walking, dancing, and everything else involved in these adventurous weekends. 1. Shower. Sleeping outside is no excuse not to shower. In fact, it’s really just another reason why you SHOULD shower! Pick a time where the lines aren’t long and get yourself in the water. Not only will it bathe you of all germs and odors, but it will revitalize your very existence with a wave of fresh energy that is otherwise unattainable. A shower will save your life (and make you more pleasant to be around). Soap recommended.Have a great weekend!last_img read more

first_imgA large number of apartments built as part of the Incentive Housing (POS) project in Istria are rented as apartments, he writes Glas Istre. Unfortunately, this news is nothing new, everyone knows everything and it has been going on for years, but… always the one but in Lijepa naša.Thus, the project, which was conceived as a support to citizens in solving the housing issue, as one of the basic needs of life, has largely turned into something quite the opposite – to support citizens to get extra income. Namely, POS apartments were sold at better prices than the market ones and were not intended to be rented out to tourists. But there are no legal obstacles, so that is exactly what is happening.POS apartments are used exclusively to solve the housing issue, and not to generate additional income, taking away the advantage of those for whom that apartment would be the only real estate. And that is why everyone who rents POS apartments as apartments should be fined as well as automatically charged the full market amount for the apartment, because the basic housing issue has obviously been resolved. Even to finally introduce some order and a drastic solution to confiscate the apartment, so that the apartment is given to the family that has a real need to solve the housing issue. Because this way, all those who pay taxes and all obligations to the State turn out to be fools, and some individuals exploit the system with our money.Tenants are not even embarrassed to walk around the city, they even brag about how cheap they got to the apartment, says Gabrijela Đukes Bašić, a city councilor from Umag and a tenant in the POS building where 60 percent of apartments are used for rent to tenants or tourists. Voice of Istria.A particularly interesting example is from Umag, where one of the POS apartments in 154. brigade Hrvatske vojske Street is owned by the wife of the head of the Office of the Mayor of the City of Umag, Diego Banković. The Bankovics are renting an apartment to tourists and, it seems, are particularly sensitive in protecting the comfort of their guests to such an extent that a few days ago Diego Bankovic chased away the children of tenants playing in front of the building and threatened to call the police.One of the parents found himself in front of the building and opposed Banković by claiming that this was a POS building, not an apartment complex, and that all these children were tenants who had the right to gather in front of the building in which they lived. He added, as Glas Istre writes, that the goal of POS is to solve housing issues, mostly of young people, and not to bribe with purchased apartments, rent or turn them into cheap tourist apartments. To make matters more paradoxical, it is the same Banković, as a city official, who participates in determining the conditions, criteria and procedure for the purchase of apartments from the POS program.In the whole story, the question is whether the mentioned POS apartment, ie the apartment for rent to tourists, is registered in the eVisitor system or receives tourists illegally.last_img read more

first_img`IT is believed that the player who starts with the White pieces, begins the game with a slight advantage. Today,all of the top four players secured wins as the Guyana National Junior Chess Championships 2016 commenced at the Ocean Spray Hotel.On board-one was the highly confident and more experienced player Roberto Neto who outplayed his opponent,Nellisha Johnson,in the Queens Gambit Declined. Johnson made one theoretical error which Neto was quick to pounce on and grabbed two pawns easily in the opening stage. Neto routinely converted his pawn advantage into a full point.Board-two saw another QGD opening. This time it was veteran junior Saeed Ali vs Aravinda Singh. In this game, Aravinda fell to an opening trap idea and was a piece down in the early stage. With not much fight, Saeed brought home the full point.Board-three was the game of the day and could have provided an upset. Jaden Taylor, 13yrs old and from Saints,playing with the black pieces should have won his game against WCM Sheriffa Ali.In the opening,Jaden sac a pawn with which he gained better pawn structure, quicker development and piece coordination. By the middle game, Jaden pieces were menacing White’s position. A moment for three-fold repetition occurred but WCM on the third move avoided the repetition.By end-game, Jaden had an outside pass pawn but WCM Ali’s fire within was still blazing as she played accurately and solidly until Jaden made that one decisive error to cause him the game.Board-four saw a Saints Chess Club clash as Joshua Gopaul played Ghansham Allijohn. Both players played solidly in an Italian Game Opening. But Alijohn fell to the famous Bishop trap by the White pawns (c3,b4,a5).last_img

Photo: James Connolly / PicSell8Research shows Donegal-made ‘Active Irish Honey’ is just as beneficial as world-famous Manuka Honey.‘Active Irish Honey’ won Best Product Award at this year’s Donegal Taste Festival.Through an Enterprise Ireland Innovation Voucher Scheme, research from Sligo IT proves it has the same activity levels as New Zealand Manuka Honey. Conor Daly, Managing Director of Travellogic, is a beekeeper in his spare time.He says that the potential for the market is huge.“Irish consumers want to buy local products for a variety of reasons, not least because it supports jobs locally. The more local the honey the more effective it is believed to be in preventing the symptoms of allergies. Many hay fever sufferers for instance get great relief from consuming locally produced honey.”Daly from Donegal Town works with businessman Austin Duigan, Raphoe and engineer Carl Diver, Falcarragh. They are developing a production and sales model, and hope to have the honey sold all over Ireland.
