Finding the Best BBCOR Bat

Finding the Best BBCOR Bat

Families with a child playing baseball at either the high school or collegiate levels have probably heard of BBCOR bats. But, what does that mean? BBCOR stands for Bat-Ball Coefficient of Restitution, and that’s a fancy way of measuring how much energy is lost when the ball contacts the bat.

Why the New Standard?

Previously, the standard was BESR, and it measured the ratio of the speed from the incoming pitch to the speed of the ball coming off the bat. BBCOR measures the trampoline effect of the ball. As a result of adopting the new standards, the ball will come off the bat at a lower speed than in the past. This has improved safety in leagues where this standard has been enacted.

Some other leagues have been requiring BBCOR bats for their players, so be sure to read the league guidelines before purchasing a new bat.

Why a Firming Lotion May be All Your Skin Needs

Why a Firming Lotion May be All Your Skin Needs

People can cause themselves harm by using too many skincare products. The most obvious damage is to their wallet because they often buy items they do not need. Women that mix and match their lotions, creams, serums and masks also risk combining ingredients that may not work well together. Here is why a skin firming lotion may be all a woman needs to combat the signs of aging.

Plump the Skin

A lotion made to tighten the skin often has ingredients that help to make it a little plumper. Most women may not like the sound of the word plump but in this instance, it is a positive. Women lose fat in their skin as they age, and the loss causes the skin to sag. Ingredients that plump up the skin make people look more youthful, increase the firmness of the skin, and reduce the look of lines and wrinkles.

Improve the Elasticity

The elasticity of the skin fades with time too and contributes to the look of aging. Loss of elasticity allows the skin to droop and lose its smooth texture. Skin firming treatments restore the elasticity, so the skin is less likely to sag and has fewer dimples or lumps.

Add Some Moisture

Many signs of aging appear worse when women have dry skin. Poorly hydrated skin exaggerates the appearance of wrinkles. Daily applications of any good-quality lotion help to reduce the appearance of visible lines on the face. The expression lines on poorly hydrated skin eventually become permanent because the skin is unable to be smooth. Moisturizing lotions reduce new wrinkle development and worsening wrinkles because the skin is not always creased.

Anyone combating aging skin should begin their skincare routine with only a cleanser and a firming lotion. Try a reliable brand and use it as instructed for several weeks. Add other products after this phase if acne, red patches or brown spots continue to cause distress. Nearly everyone will see some improvement even if the firming cream cannot completely deliver the perfect, youthful skin desired. Remember to add only one product at a time to the regimen in case any reactions occur. Adding one new serum or lotion at a time makes it easy to know what caused the reaction.

Out of Africa to Tour champion, Froome completes journey

Out of Africa to Tour champion, Froome completes journey

 PARIS (Reuters) – As softly-spoken off the bike as he is brutal on his machine, Chris Froome completed a long journey out of Africato claim his maiden Tour de France on the Champs-Elysees on Sunday.

 As much as kids from Kilburn, London, are not supposed to win the Tour, as 2012 champion Bradley Wiggins would say, kids from Kenya are not supposed to prevail on the French roads either.

 “I’d like my performances here to help inspire a lot of youngsters, especially young Africans. They have to believe they can get out of Africa to make it to European teams,” the 28-year-old Froome said.

This is exactly what Froome, born in Kenya of British descent and schooled in South Africa, did.

 He started riding at 17 with local cycling coach David Kinjah in the highlands of Nairobi and in 2006, took part in the Under-23 world championships representing Kenya.

It was hardly an auspicious beginning – crashing into a policeman on the first bend of the time trial event.

Froome joined the Barloworld team in 2008 and rode his first Tour de France, finishing 84th and with little hope of one day winning the world’s greatest cycling race.

 “The first time that I thought that ‘ok, realistically I could become a GC (general classification) rider to contend in grand Tours was during the 2011 Vuelta,” said Froome, who joined the well-oiledTeam Sky in 2010.

“Up until then I was finding it difficult to keep my performances high for three weeks. The Vuelta 2011 gave me the confidence that I do belong to the group of riders who belong in front of the general classification.”

Froome, first described by Sky principal Dave Brailsford as “a rough diamond, in need of shaping and polishing”, worked for team leader Wiggins at the Vuelta in 2011 and still managed to finish ahead of him.

“When I very first joined Team Sky they asked me what my aspirations were,” said Froome.

“I set goals. Short, long-term goals. Being able to target the Tour was one of the long-term goals.

“I work pretty well within Team Sky’s system. I’m independent but I also enjoy structure, routine, that’s what team Sky is about. They offer a structure for the riders. They have everything planned.”

 Froome, the first man since Eddy Merckx in 1970 to win at top of the iconic Mont Ventoux with the yellow jersey on his shoulders, was made to wait as he matured as a rider in the shadow of Wiggins, who last year became the first Briton to win the Tour de France.

Behind him was Froome, who expressed frustration in the mountains, where he seemed able to beat his leader. But team orders are team orders, and Froome reluctantly obeyed.

With no Wiggins this year, the Briton absent as he recovers from illness and injury, Froome quickly set about making his mark.

SUMMIT VICTORY

On the first summit finish at Ax-3-Domaines in the Pyrenees, Froome soloed to victory in awe-inspiring fashion and never surrendered the yellow jersey, despite suffering in the queen stage to l’Alpe d’Huez.

“The worst moment was on l’Alpe d’Huez when I could feel I was completely flat on energy and it’s a horrible feeling,” he said.

“When you have no more fuel left in your body and you see the sign 5 kilometers to go and you know it’s uphill, it’s something tough to get through mentally but thankfully I had (team mate) Richie Porte with me.”

Froome is eager for more glory.

“Personally I think the Tour de France has to be the pinnacle of our cycling calendar, it’s the most sought-after victory,” he said.

“Having said that the decision would be very much based on the parcours, on how suited it is to me, to my other team mates. But I’d love to come back targeting the tour every year.”

A fantastic climber and an excellent time trialist, Froome will most likely be pleased with the route of the 2014 Tour, which will start from Leeds.

“It has been a fast progression for me. I’ve learnt so much but I still have improvements to make in my climbing, my time trialing, my descending,” he said.

“But I can’t tell you what the future holds. I have been a pro for five years only.”

Tips to Surviving Mesothelioma

Tips to Surviving Mesothelioma

The most common form of mesothelioma is malignant pleural mesothelioma, the so-called “primary form” of pleural cancer. 80 to 85% of mesothelioma cases are due to an exposure to asbestos that may have occurred several decades before the development of the disease. Exposure to asbestos is mainly of occupational origin, but it can also be environmental (presence of asbestos in certain soils and their surroundings). Surviving Mesothelioma is not easy but it’s possible.

Generalities

Mesothelioma is a rare malignant tumor that affects the cells of the mesothelium, a protective membrane that covers most of the body’s internal organs including the pleura, peritoneum, and pericardium. Its most common form is malignant pleural mesothelioma.

Mesothelioma is a so-called primitive form of pleural cancer, which is characterized by a multiplication of cancer cells in the tissue constituting the pleura. The pleura is a membrane that envelops the lungs, consisting of two layers, one covers the lungs (inner leaflet or visceral pleura), the other covers the inside of the chest cavity (outer leaf or parietal pleura). When the disease occurs, the pleura thickens, takes on a scalloped appearance and the space between these two leaflets (called the pleural cavity) can fill with fluid and cause breathing difficulties.

Six out of every 10 new cases are diagnosed in people over 69 years of age. The most recent data show thousands of deaths per year.

Asbestos as the main cause

Multiple parameters influence the appearance of mesothelioma:

  • The time elapsed and the cumulative “dose” of asbestos. The dose is expressed in fibers per milliliter (mL) of air multiplied by the number of years of occupational exposure, and in fibers per liter of air multiplied by the number of years of exposure for general population exposures.
  • The peak of exposure is also important. The size and geometry of the fibers determine how the asbestos penetrated the respiratory tract and also included its bio-persistence. The most harmful fibers correspond to a length greater than 5 micrometers and a diameter of fewer than 0.5 micrometers.

Asbestos is the only recognized risk factor for mesothelioma in the pleura. Apart from erionite, a natural mineral fiber from the zeolite family, which is also a recognized risk factor, is only present in a couple parts of the world.
