418 people were asked and results showed that 69 to 64 gave their support to inviting women.

Restaurants to Visit When in New York

I recently visited New York a couple of months ago and it is a very popular tourist attraction for all, the big buildings, the yellow cabs, the hole New York experience is great but at some point your going to want to visit a restaurant I find out what the food is like. So I have devised a list of  3 restaurants that have a 4 star rating.

Del Posto – This is an up scale Italian Restaurant near the high line. It got 4 stars from Sam Sifton who said: ”Del Posto’s is a pleasure that lasts.” But for this four star experience it will knock you back $115 for a five course meal.  (more…)

Designing My Front Room

Published on December 9, 2013, by in My Experience's.

In time for Christmas I am doing a few things to my front room so that I can receive some lovely complements. I’m going to paint my walls a crisp white and do a brown feature wall and maybe put a painting or two up.

I’m also looking to get some new pillows and I heard a great tip was to but big pillows and small pillow cases so the pillows look stuffed to the max and not saggy to give it a luxurious feel.  (more…)

Rory Mcllroy talks of the mental pressures that come with golf

Rory McIlroy has slipped from the top rankings to six after not winning anything in the year 2013 and now says that the mental pressure of the sport can outweigh the physical pressures and sypathisis with cricketer Jonathan Trott who withdrew from the England team after suffering from a stress-related illness.

McIlroy said: ”It’s sad to see something like that happen and it just shows what a mental toll sport can take on you sometimes,

“Hopefully he gets home and spends some time with his family and recovers and can come back…

 

“As sport becomes so big and there’s so much pressure and so much on the line, it’s becoming more and more common that these sorts of stress-related illnesses are happening and it just shows how much of a mental toll it takes on you sometimes.”

But he does understand that the pressures on cricket may be far higher than those of golf where they experience a more friendly environment with banter.  (more…)

Handy Products to have

With the market being incredibly competitive there is always a product that offers an innovative, alternative to set them apart from the competition and it is great for people like myself who unique products with purpose below are some that I have been most impressed by.

The Magic Opener – This effectively a bottle opener but its not your standard bottle opener and instead of just having a function for just one type of bottle it has four including for cans. Sometimes opening bottles and even cans can be a struggle but not with this bottle opener and you stick it on your fridge at any time for use. It is great for people who have arthritis in hands.

Radfan – This is a great product that can save people plenty of money. It works by pushing the hot air from your radiator across the room. This product is not as well known but it is a great product that saves money.

LEDoorHandle – This is a door handle that lights up at night so you can see where your going and find your exit of the room. It is a great idea because how many times have you switched of all the lights then you can’t see where your going.

Rescue Dawn: A Great Film I Watched

Last Weekend I had the great pleasure of watching Rescue Dawn which was released in 2007 and it has taken me this long to discover this amazing piece of work.

The leading character was played by Christian Bale who’s performance was tremendous and carried the film and kept me interested.

The film is set during the Vietnam war where Bale’s character is an air pilot but during a mission he crashes and is left in the jungle all alone until he is captured and held prisoner.

From here a devises a master plan to escape and manages to pull it off and from there it is just one big struggle for freedom.

This is a great survival film and I would recommend to all to go and watch it.

My Paintballing Experience

Published on June 28, 2013, by in My Experience's.

Following my visit to California me and the boys decided to take up the sport of paintballing, a very active and fun sport that have a range of different games you can play within such as team elimination and capture the flag.

Being the competitive guy that I am me and my friend mike decided to buy some top of the range guns from www.zephyrpaintball.com to give us the edge in the in the paint balling game. We both bought the Empire mini’s along with some empire paint ball gear which are extremely lightweight which allowed us to move around quicker.

Zephyr Paintball store was great they had a huge selection of brands to choose from and if you are looking to buy any paintball equipment I would strongly recommend buying from them.

My other friends decided that they would use the guns they were given at the place and it proved that we were the smarter guys because we managed to hit people the most between us and won all the games.

Now I have this paintball gun that I am sure I will get to use again and we are talking about going again maybe in London.

One of the Greatest Footballers of all time puts the Ball Down to Make Teas

Published on May 28, 2013, by in News.

One of the greatest strikers ever in football Ronaldo has decided to to start a new career but he’ll have to start from the bottom and work his way up to become an ad man.

But the Brazilian says he is happy to become a ‘workie’ for WPP in London which is one of the biggest advertising group.

He says he will make tea for his boss and anything else respectively to become a great business man.

Ronaldo who retired in 2011 said that he will need to do an apprenticeship as he didn’t get the required education as he opted for football instead.

He has been working as an intern for 2 months now and says: “It is my purpose to learn.

“I think I will learn more from this experience in London with my master than if I went to any university.”

Sir Martin praised his student saying:

“This is his business degree.

“Apart from being a great footballer, he has a really intelligent approach to what we do. I think he will be as successful off the football field as on it.”

Ronaldo said: “I’ve been invited to join a party and they said I would be elected as a senator and have a successful political life.

“But I prefer sport, where I feel more comfortable and where I can help more.”

“Whether he likes it or not, though, he cannot escape the politics of sport.”

David Moyes For Manchester United, How will it pan out?

Published on May 10, 2013, by in News.

Firstly I’d like to say what a treat it was for us football fans to see Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United and it is very sad that he is retiring and the world of football will miss him.

But now we turn to David Moyes and will he be a success? and only time will answer that question but he is set to sign a 6 year contract which shows that United are looking for him to stay long term.

Personally I think Moyes will do well at Manchester United and it seems that fans think he is the right man for the job but the only thing that is going to be tough is the transition period where he will want to introduce some new faces and a new style of play which can take time to implement some managers have immediate effect like Jose Mourinho but most managers need at least two seasons and I just hope he is given the chance and not thrown out of the door as soon as results don’t go their way.

A great thing the board can look at is Sir Alex himself as his First Season at United wasn’t great but the board had faith that it would turn around and it did during his reign he picked up 49 cups.
