Bowling Pins Come In Different Shapes and Sizes by Ray Gaunt

Due to shortage of the suitable wood, efforts to make an all-plastic bowling pins have been undertaken for many years.. Likewise, bowling pins can also be purchased; some pins may not be made from hard rock maple wood but from plastic.

These are the different types of bowling pins there is:

Winsom pins are made in Asia.

Brunswick “Max” is the current pin with the trademarked crown logo.

AMF Sumo pin is a novelty pin based on the very popular Sumo bowling ball.

A rare AMF pin, violated Brunswick’s crown logo trademark, and was discontinued.

Brunswick “Flyer” is one of Brunswick’s first injection molded pins. Vulcan was a competitor to both AMF and Brunswick, which eventually bought by Brunswick. Not like other bowling pins, candlepins maybe set on either side.

Bowling pins are created by gluing blocks of hard rock maple wood into the vague shape, and then forming them on a lathe. After the lathe shapes the pins, they are coated with a plastic material, painted and finally covered with a glossy finish. The different types of bowling pins mentioned above are the ones existing or being displayed in PBA.

There are bowling pins sold in the market today. Injection molding made the coating thicker than the original dipping process.

Brunswick mixer was the last in the series of plastic dipped for Brunswick.

Vulcan Vultex II. Many online sports shopping sell different sports equipment, and accessories. Candlepins are different to the others. They almost look like a candle, nearly cylindrical in shape. It is a surlyn coated injection molded pin.

Brunswick “B” Maxis an early version of Brunswick “Max” pin.

The Brunswick Killer “B”

Brunswick PBA gold pin is a 33lb 10 oz pin and is heavier than the normal pin; these pins can only be used in PBA tournament play.

Brunswick WWF “The rock pin”, and Candle pin.

Duckpins are shorter and squatter than duckpins. These pins are the tallest of all at 15 ? inches, but only a little over 2.9 inches wide, and weigh 2 lb 8 oz. Canadians fivepins between the size of tenpins and duckpins but have a thick, 1- inch- wide rubber band around the widest part of the pin to increase pin action when struck

Sports :: Carp Fishing Bait Secrets Of Choosing The Best Readymade Baits You Can buy! (Page 6 of 9)

Part of the original success of Mainline was having strong links with the food industry.

Page 6 of 9 :: First | Last :: Prev | 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 | Next

Many readymade bait formulations and recipes came from individuals who did certainly became well known but what were the individual paths of evolution in terms of bait design knowledge for people such as Geoff Bowers, Rod Hutchinson, Mike Willmott, Malcolm Winkworth, Geoff Kemp, Tony Miles, Kevin Nash, Gary Bayes and Ian Moore and so on? This is a question that I find very interesting indeed!

Carp anglers are always being told to buy quality bait but ironically enough on a genuinely pragmatic levels relatively few anglers really understand how one bait is a better quality than another – or even how quality actually translates into something that is verifiable. For example how much psychoactive THC is in hemp used in fishing boilies – and what impact does this have on carp brain chemistry?

Many companies both big and small have many less well-known competitive advantages. For instance does it mean that New Zealand lactalbumin has been used instead of a nutritionally inferior but cheaper alternative source and if so how on earth would you know as a readymade bait buyer anyway? After all baits catch fish for so many individual reasons.

How do you know if a particular grade of soya is used or even what the digestibility of a fish meal used is, when used in conjunction with various other ingredients and additives?

A highly bioactive liquid or powder might be the cornerstone of the success of a readymade bait and the quality and effectiveness of a bait in terms of other additives and ingredients could well be a compromise to make profits. Well of course bigger bait companies have a good track record but guess what – it does not mean you cannot trust smaller companies because after all, the big companies of today were also small too!. I think Solar has connections with aquaculture feed specialists for example, and Nash Baits have their own in-house flavorist.

But remember this; many of the most famous boilies of today and over the decades were not even designed by people running bait companies directly or who were not interested in the commercial side of carp fishing as much as others. Think about it – what bioactive components are in some of the most well known flavours used in instant attractor baits? Some great flavours may be regarded as health promoters and even as metabolic stimulants among other benefits and effects. Remember that even in small doses, certain substances exert great influence on senses and the function of the body. For example CC Moore has been an animal feed specialist for 12 generations – and benefit from an enormous wealth of experience in feed formulation and in sourcing top quality ingredients etc from around the world. One of the gems of advice given was to only get your baits from big bait companies that you can trust. What were the true origins of Nutrabaits Big Fish Mix or Hi-Nu-Val and who were the individuals involved and their personal evolutions in designing baits! Dave Moore is obviously a very well known bait guy from the north of England but the roots of certain other mixes can be less than clearly documented and rooted in intrigue.

In the Anglers Mail this past week there was a piece written about catching your first big carp

Online Gambling Trends And Predictions – A Comprehensive New Report By Pwc

The bottom line is each form of gambling draws varied reactions from multiple sectors of society. Deal or no deal, social networks are bound to take on a major role in promoting online casinos. We can go on discussing a host of other forms of gambling and the public’s different views on these. Government and Taxation

Final Note

Rick is an industry veteran offering views and insights into the online casino world. While this site focuses on online casinos, a discussion on land-based casinos cannot be ignored at this point considering its huge operations and strong influence on its online counterpart. Sports-betting has likewise become a big industry in the US.

Recession and US Casinos

We will continue to keep track of interesting news and issues pertaining to online gaming laws and regulations so do follow us regularly on twitter @rCasinoReviews or simply subscribe to our RSS feed. Lastly, forging ties with social networks have become a trend among casino owners as they recognize its valuable contribution to market presence and revenue growth.. The Social Network Bandwagon

Asia Pacific Region – Gaining Headway

Many might be wondering whether a deal could possibly be forged between the popular social network Facebook and Harrahs. 4. On the other hand, table games in casinos are often times viewed as merely a game of chance and is unlikely to gain widespread acceptance compared with poker games. It is worthy to mention that we have chosen contents relevant to this site and have summarized these alongside some of our inputs (Readers who wish to get a glimpse of the report details may visit http://www.pwc.com/gx/en/entertainment-media/pdf/pwc-playing-to-win.pdf.

Casino Revenue Figures – Actual and Estimates

1. The recent economic recession has had negative repercussions on casino owners in Nevada and Atlantic City. This lengthy but must-read report discusses the land-based and online casino industry including players, trends, and revenue growth, to name a few. Of course we cannot discount the role of the general public in shaping the future of casinos worldwide. Singapore is not to be left behind as it occupied the number three slot among the regions revenue contributor for the same year.

PwC’s report came out in two parts. Asia Pacific countries like Australia and South Korea have become major players as they accounted for 92% of the region’s casino revenues for 2008. Understandably, Government would want higher revenue from taxes however, it may be wise to temper its imposition of taxes (including regulations) if it wants the industry to thrive. The company further estimates that this will reach US$156.8 billion or a hefty 56 percentage points increase by year-end 2014.

Like any other business or going concern, casinos are also taxed by the Government. Apparently, more and more casino business owners recognize the value of social utilities and their huge contribution to increasing customer base and revenues. Whether or not it is ready to embrace gambling as a legitimate source of entertainment for mature and responsible adults still remains to be seen. We have gone one step ahead by digesting selected sections of the report and summarizing them for you. Too much imposition of taxes and stringent regulations may kill the industry. For this reason, a premier gambling business in UK has decided to pull-out and relocate its head office offshore.

Article Directory: http://www.articledashboard.com

Price Waterhouse Coopers (PwC), one of the giants among accountancy firms worldwide has recently published a report on “Global Casino and Online Gaming Market to 2014″. PwC reports that for 2009 alone, revenue derived from gambling worldwide was a whopping US$100.5 billion. Societal Views and Values

By: Rick A

People have different perspectives about gambling. On-line gambling in France for instance has blamed the French Government for its poor performance due to regulations and taxes. Probably for lack of reliable and credible sources, revenue figures from online gambling were excluded from the PwC report. Apparently, crossing borders would be inevitable as business owners try to provide its local customers with as many players to play against.

A few years ago, the UIGEA Bill was passed to control illegal online gambling although there are entities pushing for its repeal. It is interesting to note that apart from Harrahs, other online casino businesses have expressed growing interest in joining the social networking bandwagon. Gaming businesses in UK also experienced the same heavy imposition of taxes. His casino blog provides insider information about online casino and what players need to know.

3. Below is a brief discussion of these directions including our views.

The practice of keeping casino operations within territories or states are backed up by their respective governments however, this set up may not gain a strong foot hold in the coming years. The Powerball multistate lottery in the US and selected provinces in Canada are gearing towards creating a poker network.

In the US, casino owners are experiencing a less than favorable output. In the US, horse racing has evolved into a legal activity in various states. Cross-Border Gambling

Overall, it seems that growth of online casinos (including land-based ones) will be greatly influenced by Government’s laws and regulations on casinos and strategies on achieving revenue growth in the coming years. The company however came out with revenue figures derived from regulated online gambling. Poker for instance is viewed as game of strategy and entails analytical skills from among its players. Casino owners were not spared of the crisis. As a precautionary measure, the New Jersey government is reportedly preparing to submit an Online Gambling Bill which would help casinos outside of Atlantic City to obtain operating licenses.

Shifts and Directions

PwC also reported major directions to be taken by online casinos within a four-year time frame. Casino owners, especially those operating within smaller states or regions would find ways to broaden its customer reach. As expected, revenues took a nosedive. One proof is the growing number of Zynga poker fans who play poker for free via Facebook.

2. The saying “Different folks, different strokes” strongly applies.

Everyone knows that Asia is being touted as the next global champion, thus it didn’t come as a surprise when PwC reported that the Asia Pacific Region industry players, specifically Macau, has already surpassed Nevada’s casino revenues in 2008. The first part contains discussions on land-based casinos while the second touches on online casinos

World Cup Referees Learning English Swear Words

It met with each team before the World Cup, reminding players they could be carded or tossed for salty language or obscene gestures.

On Monday, Rooney was given a yellow card — a warning — after referee Jeff Selogilwe claimed the striker swore at him. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed. You don’t want to fall into that trap.

In a game in 2006, American Brian McBride was a bloody mess after taking an elbow to the face from Italy’s Danielle De Rossi. Same for fingers, elbows, fists and anything else that could be construed as, uh, universal gestures.

The Brazilian referee and his assistants for Saturday’s England-United States game at the World Cup are brushing up on the lexicon of English-language obscenities.

The World Cup: 5 Players to Watch

The World Cup Guide for Americans

Watch those mouths, boys. Materazzi wasn’t altogether innocent, either, reportedly saying some not-so-nice things about Zidane’s mother.

“All players swear and we know we will hear a few,” Hausmann told Brazilian broadcaster Globo Sport.

“At the end of the day, you don’t understand half of it,” former Premier League and FIFA referee Graham Barber said. “So what do you do about it? Say ‘I think he swore he at me, so I sent him off?’ You don’t, do you?”

While their ears will be listening for curses, their eyes will be looking for other ugliness.

© 2010 CBS Interactive Inc. But referees can’t give out cards for what they think was said, and FIFA requires World Cup referees and assistants to be proficient only in English.

Rooney gets his own chapter in the book on bad behavior.

But swearing a blue streak isn’t the only thing that could lead a referee to toss a player from the World Cup. The suave, seemingly unflappable David Beckham was reviled at home after kicking Argentina midfielder Diego Simeone at the 1998 World Cup, a display of petulance that helped cost England the game.

This emphasis on curtailing cursing and bad behavior shouldn’t come as a surprise to any players — English, American or otherwise. “Wayne himself just has to make sure he controls his frustrations in the right manner — and takes it out on the opposition and not the referees.”

“We’ve had experience of losing big players at important times.”

Especially when the referees can understand his every word.

Cursing in soccer is hardly new. “Not just for the fans, but for everybody.”

. The Associated Press contributed to this report.

“He is a fantastic player and we don’t want to take Wayne’s fire away from him because that’s the type of player he is, always on the edge,” Gerrard said. FIFA prides itself on its family friendly entertainment, cracking down on anything that could be considered violent or vulgar. All Rights Reserved. FIFA denied reports that match officials have been given lists of swear words. Portuguese, Korean, Greek — nothing gets lost in translation. Watch any game, and you’re sure to see players uttering some choice words after missed shots, fouls or turnovers. Carlos Simon will referee Saturday’s match in Rustenburg, assisted by Roberto Braatz and Altemir Hausmann.

There’s an old saying that soccer is a gentleman’s game played by thugs, and players earned that reputation on more than one occasion. “You don’t use any language, because then you’ll be booked and the whole team suffers. But one member of Saturday’s officiating crew said they’re boning up on English and American curses. Look no further than the final at the last World Cup, when French great Zinedane Zidane was sent off for head-butting Italy’s Marco Materazzi in the chest. This came during a meaningless exhibition game against a local club team, no less.

Berlin, GERMANY: French midfielder Zinedine Zidane talks to Argentinean referee Horacio Elizondo after he gave him a red card during the World Cup 2006 final football match between Italy and France at Berlin’s Olympic Stadium, 09 July 2006. Obscene gestures and overly aggressive behavior are big no-nos, too, and the refs will be on the lookout.

“In this day and age, I think it’s important to show the referees some respect,” England captain Steven Gerrard said Thursday. Can Beat England

If it’s said in the referee’s native language or English, however, get ready for a yellow card.

The crash course in cursing is thanks in part to hot-tempered English star Wayne Rooney, who ran his potty mouth during a warm-up match this week.

At the 2006 World Cup in Germany, England’s mercurial star drew a red card — and automatic ejection — for stomping on Portugal defender Ricardo Carvalho’s groin.

“It’s a good warning for all of us, just to clean up the game a little bit and watch what we say,” U.S

The practice of keeping casino operations within territories or states are backed up by their respective governments however, this set up may not gain a strong foot hold in the coming years.

Final Note

Price Waterhouse Coopers (PwC), one of the giants among accountancy firms worldwide has recently published a report on “Global Casino and Online Gaming Market to 2014″. On the other hand, table games in casinos are often times viewed as merely a game of chance and is unlikely to gain widespread acceptance compared with poker games.

Fifa World Cup Brazil 2014: Argentina a hotbed of talent — for Europe.

Today Messi is the poster boy for Argentine football. Angel Di Maria started playing for Rosario Central at 17, then signed with Benfica in Lisbon two years later. The country has also lost its dominance in the Copa Libertadores, the biggest prize in the South American club game. Few Argentines have ever seen the country’s best players in the struggling domestic Primera Division, which has turned exporting young talent into an industry. Argentina have some of the cream of global football stars. It would be their first title since the legendary Diego Maradona led the national side to victory in 1986 in Mexico. Shine from afar Messi never played professionally in his home country. Argentine fans largely discover their stars with the rest of the world when they succeed in Europe and start playing for the national team.

Muscat Press and Publishing House SAOC 2014 Provided by SyndiGate Media Inc. The investment paid off massively for Barca, which has won three Champions League titles and six national championships with a team including the four – time world player of the year. By comparison, only seven of the 23-man squad for Germany, the South Americans’ opponents in Sunday’s final, are with foreign clubs. The club offered to pay $900 a month for the diminutive young phenomenon to undergo growth-hormone treatment if he moved to Spain. All rights reserved.. But as its stars have moved abroad, Argentina’s domestic league has faded. Other Argentine stars have started in local football but soon moved to Europe. River Plate and Independiente de Avellaneda, two of the so-called “Big Five” of Argentine football, have both recently been relegated to the second-tier Nacional B league. That was the case for Aguero, who started at Independiente at the age of 15 and was bought by Atletico Madrid at 18 for 23 million euros. But only three of Argentina’s World Cup squad of 23 are with Argentinian clubs, most like Messi (Barcelona), Angel di Maria (Real Madrid) and Sergio Aguero (Manchester City) are earning their millions in Spain, Italy and England’s Premier League. Argentinian teams have won the cup 22 times, more than any other country — but just twice in the last decade (Boca Juniors in 2007 and Estudiantes in 2009). Argentines are desperate to see their country win their third World Cup final on Sunday at Rio de Janeiro’s Maracana stadium.

Rio de Janerio: Football has become a huge export industry for World Cup finalists Argentina with Lionel Messi the leader of a huge flock of talent that has fled abroad to seek riches. And the hero of Argentina’s semifinal against the Netherlands, keeper Sergio Romero, left Racing Club de Avellaneda at 20 years old to sign with Dutch side AZ Alkmr. Argentina’s dismal economy since its 2001 debt crisis has fuelled the growth of such deals, which can bring cash-strapped clubs tens of millions of euros. But he was spotted by Barcelona’s talent scouts when he was 11 years old. Some of the country’s most storied clubs have entered humiliating slumps. Gonzalo Higuain played one year for River Plate, then was bought by Real Madrid at 19 years old for 12 million euros. Maxi Rodriguez, who came on as a substitute is with Newell’s Old Boys, having ended his European playing days. Romero now has a contract with Sampdoria but is on loan with Monaco in the French league where he struggles to get a regular game. ( Syndigate.info ).
