Football Freestyle In Sweden

Is it big? It depends on what "big" means in this case. If it means big as in a lot of shows, performances and clinics I would say no, I will tell you about this later in this article. If big is how many good freestylers come from Sweden I would say yes, a lot of great freestylers live there. So why is not there more freestyle events in Sweden? I will start with the performance part … There is not a lot of freestyle performances in Sweden. Some freestylers have gigs a couple of times a month. Some people think this is much, but compared to Holland where the best freestylers perform almost on a daily basis, it's not very much. As I said there is some, but to me it's strange why there is not more! What's strange is that there are so many great freestylers in Sweden, but not much events, performances and work shops … why? I have no idea. My theory would be that Swedish football is built on the team, not the individuals (there are people like Zlatan, yes). In Sweden you do not want to have a team with to many great individuals, you want Good, not AMAZING players, that's working great as a team. If you embrace the art of football freestyle you also embrace the individual technique and you will...

Gluten Free Beer

Gluten free beer is an important consideration if you have a gluten allergy or celiac. Most beer is made with gluten-containing wheat, or more often barley. This has made drinking regular beer pretty much out of the question for many people. As the number of people avoiding gluten increases rapidly, a relatively new market for gluten-free beer has been filled by a number of companies. There are a number of types of gluten-free beer, and in some cases, the beer is not actually 100% gluten-free. This is disturbing, as some companies prefer to argue that their low-gluten beer is safe to grab market share, rather than either properly label their beer, or reformulate it to be truly gluten-free. Some countries, Australia for example, have a very strict definition of what can be called "gluten-free": no detectable gluten in the food. This sounds good, but as gluten tests become more sensitive, some foods, previously labeled gluten-free, will not longer meet the requirements. Never the less, this is a good standard to aim for. Other countries, such as UK, have a specific level below which the food can be labeled "gluten-free": 20 ppm (parts per million). Whether this is is a truly safe level or not can not be stated with 100% confidence. Another consideration is that drinking enough beer that such low levels of gluten become a big problem probably...

Are Web and Blog Design Fads Costing You Money?

Even the most talented graphic designers and web designers tend to be slaves to fashion. Seemingly unable to resist the latest design trends, they often follow them without thinking. They do that even when it makes their blogs and web sites difficult or uncomfortable to read. The secret is that design courses teach them to look at the layout without reading the text or headings. That's a great strategy for checking the overall design, but if handled too far, it leads to unreadable pages – in print or on the web. They simply are not looking at how easy or hard it is to read the text, links, and subheadings. Many people seem to assume that being flashy or fashionable is the heart of good design. But the real purpose of design, especially on the Internet, is readability. Research on the Internet has shown that it is great content, not stylish design, that site visitors search for and act upon. Web sites, blogs, and other publications should be, first of all, easy to read. Site visitors decide in just 5 to 8 seconds whether to read the content or leave the site. You must draw them into the content right way for the site to accomplish its purpose. That means the text must be easy to read. Black Type on White Is Still the Best. Roger Black, the designer...
