Five good habits for a better golf game

Five good habits for a better golf game

Sports
Most professional golfers agree that attitude is a major part of being good at and enjoying golf. But telling someone to have a good attitude is easy - doing it is hard. A big part of attitude comes down to the enjoyment of the game which comes from a lack of distractions and frustrations above and beyond the challenge of hitting the ball well. Spending time rooting around a golf bag looking for a ball marker, applying sunscreen and cleaning off clubs from last week’s game are distractions that impair concentration. Focus instead on establishing good golfing habits that let you concentrate solely on the game and the rewards of fresh air and exercise. Below are five areas of the game (on and off the course) where adopting a consistent routine can do wonders to improve attitude, fo...

Zynga’s CityVille takes players beyond the farm

Gaming
Zynga is no stranger to creating addictive social games. FarmVille, FrontierVille, and Cafe World are some of their biggest, boasting fans all over Facebook who just can't stop clicking. CityVille, however, released in early December 2010, has been an especially popular hit.

Guitar Hero WT vs Rock Band 2

Guitar Hero WT vs Rock Band 2

Gaming
Drum Kit Construction Comparison Out of the box you can feel the difference between the two kits. When it comes to strength the GHWT (Guitar Hero World Tour) kit is superior. However, sturdier also means it is a bit heavier. The legs have a cross bar that helps prevents swaying from side to side. This causes a problem with the kick pedal if you prefer to sit up close and have the pedal further out as it can block your leg. The pedal works more like a drum pad than an actual bass pedal, and is less prone to breaking. RB2 (Rock Band 2) has reinforced the old pedal from the first game with metal. It is a bit stronger than its predecessor but with only two support bars it has a tendency to sway. The pads are able to take more of a beating as they have used a new material for them, whic...

Facebook games: Farm Town and Farmville

Gaming
Farm Town and Farmville are a phenomenon in the world of Facebook, garnering millions of virtual farmers to a world many would never have a chance to inhabit. Is it because of the yearning for open spaces; a Walter Mittyish desire to live off of the land? Whatever the reason, Farm Town and Farmville are two of the hottest applications in the well-stocked arsenal of Facebook. Although there is another, older farming game on Facebook, ('Lil) Green Patch, Farm Town and Farmville have become the premier farmers past time. 'Lil Green Patch comes with an agenda - fight global warming - and the graphics are cute and cartoonish, as are the other two applications. But more farmers are signing on to Facebook for Farm Town and Farmville. A little about Facebook Facebook has grown at an astou...
