Shake and strain over fresh ice in a double rocks glass. Garnish with orange slice and cherry. Whiskey sour is a cocktail that does not have the greatest reputation. I think the reason for that is that sour makes people think of sour mix, which is this disgusting, processed fake ingredient. But you really shouldn't be afraid, because sour is actually just a style of cocktail. Back in the 19th century a sour just meant a drink that had a spirit, citrus and some sugar or simple syrup. That's really all a whiskey sour is, it's whiskey, lemon juice and simple syrup. One of my favorite things about this drink is it's a great way to still have whiskey, if you really like whiskey in hot weather in the summer, because it's a really refreshing drink. So we're going to start with our spirit. Two ounces of rye whiskey, you can also use bourbon. I just love rye whiskey, let's face it. But this is also a drink that bourbon works great in too. Now we'll do equal parts sugar and citrus. Three-quarters of an ounce of simple syrup. Again that's just one part sugar to one part water dissolved together. Three-quarters of an ounce of fresh-squeezed lemon juice, very important. You know that's the step that people decided they didn't want to do, and so instead they created sour mix, which then made people hate the whiskey sour. So this is the most important ingredient in your whiskey sour. Now I'm going to do something else that's a very classic touch to the whiskey sour. It might scare you a little bit, but just bear with me. I'm going to add a little bit of egg white. There's alcohol in there, so whatever fears you have of raw eggs, whatever could maybe be in there, the alcohol is going to kill, so don't worry about that. What it's going to do is not really add so much in the way of taste, but it's going to add a really nice frothy texture that's going to be great. So we're going to do the egg whites, so just separate the egg white. Here you go. Toss the rest. As always it is very handy to have a trash can nearby to make your life easier. Whenever there's a raw egg in the drink, we're going to do something called a dry shake, which means to shake it without ice first to emulsify the egg. Then we'll shake it again with ice to chill it. Just a few shakes to do that. You can see it's nice and frothy. Now we'll add our ice. Whiskey sour is a drink that you can serve on the rocks or up. I like it on the rocks, especially if you have those really nice ice cube trays that make the big 1 x 1 cubes, which I happen to have on hand. You'll see the results in a minute. Just so you can see, that ice cube is perfectly square. That means it won't melt as fast in the drink. There are only four ice cubes in there, so it won't water down your drink too fast. Okay, and now it's time to shake for real. Oh yeah, check this out. See how frothy that is? It gives it a really nice, silky texture. That's all from the egg white and again, it's not really going to add anything in the way of flavor. We're going to garnish the whiskey sour with an orange and cherry flag. it will really liven things up. See we have a toothpick, you kind of spear it like that and then grab your cherries. One right on top and then sort of get in there, so the top is poking out. And there you have it, so no need to be afraid anymore. That is how you make a classic whiskey sour.

Build in Collins glass. Top with soda. A Collins is a style of cocktail that is made in, as you might imagine, a Collin's glass. I'm going to show you how to make the king of all Collin's cocktails, Tom Collin's. The Tom Collins is basically a gin sour that is topped with soda water. So we're going to start with our gin. Two ounces, as you would a normal gin sour. You notice a lot of these classic cocktails have the same recipe's just different ingredients. And we're just going to build this right in the glass, because we're going to top it with soda water. So we don't need to shake it or stir it to add any extra dilution from the ice. Just make sure that your soda is nice and cold, because we're not going to get any extra chilling from the ice when we shake it. Now three-quarter ounce of simple syrup as our sweetener, again just one part sugar to one part water. And we need some lemon juice as our citrus to balance out that sweetener, we're just going to need three-quarters ounce of that, equal parts. And as always the fresher your juice is the better. I cannot condone store bought citrus. I just can't do it and I won't. All right, fresh lemon juice, three-quarters ounce of that. This drink is really great for hot weather, because of all that soda water it's really, really refreshing. And also, it makes it last a lot longer. And of course, you can use three-quarters lemon. The Tom Collin's is the most classic of the Collin's, but it's a great template for variation. You could make this with bourbon. You could make this with tequila, all that stuff works. Now I'm going to top it off with ice. I really like to fill it all the way up and our nice cold seltzer. Whoop, we're good. Like I said that'll serve as our dilution. So no shaking or stirring. I think the Tom Collins is a drink that deserves a good garnish. It's a long drink. You're going to be holding it for awhile, might as well make it pretty to look at, so okay I'm just going to cut a little wedge of orange. And if you have a toothpick or a little crystal pick like this you can make what they call a flag. And add a little cherry, with a cherry on top, naturally. And then jimmy that in there, and there you go, and that's how you make a classic Collins, the Tom Collins.

How to Make a Manhattan | Cocktail Recipes

Check out the official app http://apple.co/1I00csa Watch more How to Make Cocktails videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/510355-How-to-Make-a-Manhattan-Cocktail-Recipes Recipe: 2-Â_ oz Rittenhouse Rye; Â_ oz Sweet Vermouth; 2 dashes Angostura Bitters. Stir and serve straight up. Garnish with 2 cherries on a pick. I'm going to show you how to make a drink that's about as classic as classic can get, the Manhattan. Manhattan dates back to about the 1860's a long time ago when it was invented; when vermouth came over from Europe to America and then American's being the cocktail innovators that they were, decided to mix it with their favorite cocktail ingredient, whiskey; and the Manhattan was born. So we're going to start by using our base whiskey, two and a half ounces of rye whiskey. I'm using rye whiskey as opposed to bourbon, which is what a lot of people use to make Manhattans. I'm using rye, because it's historically accurate for one, back in the 1860's rye was a little more popular than the bourbon. So that 's how the Manhattan was originally made. I also think it makes a little bit of a better drink, because rye is made of 51% rye grain, by law as opposed to bourbon, which is 51% corn. So bourbon is a little sweeter whereas rye is a little bit sharper and I think comes through better in the drink. But if you prefer bourbon Manhattan's don't let me stop you. So that's two and a half ounces of rye whiskey and now the vermouth. I'm going to do three-quarters of an ounce vermouth. And again, the proportions; you know if you prefer something that's a little more whiskey forward or maybe something with a little more vermouth in it; feel free to take some liberties. These are just general guidelines. Three-quarters ounce vermouth, an important note about vermouth, is that you really should refrigerate it once it's been opened. Even though it's been fortified with a little bit of alcohol it's still wine-based, so it will oxidize like wine and it will go bad. Since we only use three-quarters to an ounce at a time, it takes a long time to move through an entire bottle of vermouth, so remember keep your vermouth in the fridge or else it will go bad. And now our final ingredient, just a three ingredient drink, about as easy as it gets is our bitters. This is angostura bitters, definitely the most common bitters that you'll find. You can even buy them in most bodega's, which is funny because they actually are 44.7% alcohol, higher proof than a lot of whiskeys, and any kid can buy them. So if you see a kid chugging angostura bitters, tell them that you're on to them. But I don't know why you'd do that, because I do not recommend drinking these by themselves. They don't call them bitters for nothing. So now two dashes of bitters; one, two. Whoa, blow back. Again, we're making drinks, we're also making a mess. Okay, now we're done and we're going to stir this cocktail. Because all the ingredients are alcoholic, so we don't need to shake it, because we don't need to force the ingredients together as much. We just need to kind of gently coax them into mingling, if you will. And you can really fill it up with a lot of ice. I like to have the ice sort of just above the level of the drink, so that it really gets in there. Now when you're stirring you're doing two things. You are chilling and diluting at the same time. And you're not stirring kind of like you're stirring cake batter, you know? It's just gently gliding around the outside of the glass, and stirring takes time to perfect, so it's effortless when you're making cocktails. I mean I used to go home, and just stir water and ice after work, and try to perfect it. Until it got to the point where it was effortless. So don't feel bad if it doesn't look as sexy as this. About 20-25 seconds of stirring should do it and now it's time to strain our drink. i put a glass in the freezer, so it'll get nice and cold, and keep this freezing drink, freezing. All right, nice, frosty glass. All right and for our garnish, we're going to use a cherry. These are the best cherries you can buy. They're called Luxardo cherries. They're a lot better than your normal maraschino cherry. They're expensive, but totally worth. And with our garnish we are done and that is how you make a Manhattan.

First 3 Sets of Siu Nim Tau Form | Wing Chun
Watch more How to Do Wing Chun videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/509897-First-3-Sets-of-Siu-Nim-Tau-Form-Wing-Chun Okay, so now I'm going to discuss and we're going to demonstrate the Siu Nim Tau Form. We're first going to do the first part of the form, which is first three sets of the Siu Nim Tau Form and I'm going to have my assistant here, demonstrate it and I'm going to explain a little bit, how it works. Again, forms are about fundamentals and forms are about body mechanics. Forms don't teach you anything about timing and power and dealing with an opponent, who's resisting, but they are very, very important for laying the ground work for body mechanics. So, we start the Siu Nim Tau Form off, like every other form, every other basic drill in Wing Chun. We start at the frontal stance. So, you're going to go ahead and set the stance like this. The first set of the form, we're going to do Tan-Sao, alright? So, your partner is going to cross, the left hand is on top, from there you're going to chop straight down, in a very relaxed manner and then you're going to do the internal rotation, or the Kwan-Sao and you come right back to the position you started. Okay, the second set of the form, we're going to start with the left punch. So, you bring your fist to the center. Now, you want to keep your elbow low and your shoulder low here, because this is where the power comes from. We say in Wing Chun, fist comes from the heart, the force comes from the elbow. So, when you launch the punch, it's very important that you're not using your shoulder to push but rather, you are launching from the elbow here, in a straight line, landing with the bottom three knuckles. After that, you're going to open the hand and you're going to do the Huen-Sao. When you do the Huen-Sao, you want to bring this all the way back and all the way down. When you get to the bottom position, you close the fists and you're going to bring it up and in and then you retract in a straight line as if you're doing an elbow strike, behind you. And then, you repeat the process on the right side. Put the fist in the center, launch from the elbow, open the hands, do a full circle, all the way down, trying to keep your elbow in place and circle it in, and then you withdraw in a straight line. And that's the second set of the form. Now the third set, we start with the Tan-Sao. The third set, we normally do a little bit slower because we're focusing on what we call, elbow force here, alright? But, we're going to speed it up a little bit, for the video today. You're going to bring your Tan So, right to the center here, this is the mid Tan So. After that, you're going to circle into Huen-Sao and Wu-Sao and then the arm is going to retract, from the elbow and the shoulder, as opposed to, from the wrist. When it gets close enough to the body, you're going to drop the hand and you're going to start the Fuk-Sao. Now, in the form, we do the Fuk-Sao, a total of three times. Then he's going to circle and then back. And this is again, to work on the elbow force, that's very important for our Chi-So practice and our overall body mechanics and structure, in Wing Chun. The entire time he's going through this process, he's going to keep his head back, posture straight, knees in together. So, it's not solely focusing on the hands, the knee pressure has to be engaged the whole time. Then we go to the side palm, then you go back and then you're going to launch the direct straight palm and then open and circle. And that's one side and then we're going to go ahead and repeat on the right side. So, we start with the Tan-Sao, drawing out slowly. Normally, you would do it a little bit slower than this, then you're going to circle, Wu-Sao and back. And again, very important while you're practicing this, is to keep the body mechanics in mind, upright structure, head back and shoulders in a stable position, and drop. And while you practice the Siu Nim Tau Form, you want to keep your breathing nice and even, you don't want to expel your breath, when you're punching or holding your breath at any moment. You actually want to keep your breathing, in a nice even rhythm because when you're fighting explosively, you need to keep your breath in check, you don't want to hold your breath or expel, just when you're punching. And there you go, that's the first three sets or the first part of the Siu Nim Tau Form.

Shake and strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with a lime wheel.
 The Cosmopolitan is the only classic cocktail that was invented in the last 20 years, but it has suffered a little bit of a negative connotation lately, and I think that's due to a certain HBO show about four women going to brunch. But I'm going to go out on limb and defend the Cosmopolitan, because I think it is a great cocktail, and I have to give it serious props because without the Cosmopolitan getting so popular, who knows if cocktail culture would have reemerged the way it has in the first place. So we have to pay our respects to the Cosmopolitan. And the good news is when it's made properly with fresh ingredients it's actually a really delicious cocktail. So we're going to start with two ounces of lemon vodka or citrus vodka, and a little orange liquer, Quantro is a great option for that, three-quarters of an ounce. You'll see a lot of versions of this recipe. This is the one I like to do, I'm kind of do a mixture of all of them. I also like to add a little bit of simple syrup, because I think that Quantro comes on a little too strong, so just a quarter ounce of simple syrup, and about three-quarters of an ounce of fresh-squeezed lime juice. This is another one of those drinks is that if you get the mix or anything like that it's all downhill from there. It's got to be fresh ingredients if it's going to taste good, and you want your drinks to taste good, right? I mean why else are you making them? And the key ingredient, of course, is the cranberry juice to give it that nice trademark pink color, three-quarters of an ounce of cranberry juice. Notice this is the real cranberry juice, not the processed kind that you usually see. This is a shaken drink, since we've got some citrus in there, a little more ice. Okay, now we've got our ice in there, and I'm going to grab the frozen coupe glass in the freezer. Okay, time to shake. Oh yeah, it's definitely pink. I mean that is a Cosmopolitan right there. I'm going to garnish it with a lime wheel, a nice, thin slice of lime to top it off. Cheers, girls. That's how you make a classic Cosmopolitan.

8 Best Running Back Qualities | Football Recruiting
Watch more College Football Recruiting videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/505281-8-Best-Running-Back-Qualities-Football-Recruiting The running back position is one that has a lot of different styles that are all effective. The five nine, quick, change of direction kind of a back. The big old back, the six foot, 215 pound downhill runner. I think what college coaches look for in running backs and their tailbacks and fullbacks is versatility, really. You got to have vision first. You have to understand. You have to be able to see the hole and see the adjustment of where you need to run the football - your running lane. You have to have explosiveness. You have to get to the line of scrimmage in a hurry. You got to press that hole, that you're supposed to be running to, in a hurry, in a split second so that the defense only has a second to react. Once you do that, that ability to stick your foot in the ground, or make that jump cut to avoid that tackler or to get into the open and maybe get around your blocker are key things. There has to be an ability to make a defender miss whether it's by power, running over them or whether it's by change in direction. Right? Those are some of the things, basic things, that a coach is looking for. Then there got to be that burst - BOOM! That acceleration. That chance where two defenders are coming and I, as a tailback, have the ability to split those guys with that burst and get up the field. And then versatility, I talk about catching the ball out of the backfield. If you can catch the ball out of the backfield you can be in every down. Blocking - if you can block, carry out your assignments on the fakes and do the little things, as a running back you can be in on every down. If you're 5' 9", you better be a strong son-of-a-gun with great quickness because that's how you'll overcome the concern about the height. Understand what kind of a back you are. Use the basic skills that you have to have as a tailback and make them miss guys.

How to Make a Martini | Cocktail Recipes

Stir, serve up. Garnish with an olive or a twist. The martini is pretty much the most famous cocktail ever, it needs no introduction. However even though everybody knows it, there are about a million different ways to drink them. People like them shaken, stirred, up, on the rocks, olives, twist, dirty, dry. Just like a Reese's Peanut Butter cup, there's no wrong way to drink a martini. But, I'm going to show you the classic way to make a martini, and it might surprise you actually, because classically martini's were made with gin and not vodka. Over time, I think because the popularity of vodka, somehow vodka just overtook the primary ingredient in most martini's. Now people don't even specify if they want vodka or gin. They just assume it's made with Vodka. Originally it was made with gin. The reason for this is that in the 19th century when all of these classic cocktails were invented, vodka didn't really exist in the United States. It did over in Russia, but it wasn't until the 1940's that vodka came over and it didn't get popular until the 1950's, which is then when people started drinking martini's with vodka. So we're going to make it the classic way and for my money the better way, but again do whatever you want. People always get angry when I mess with their martini. Do it, it's your martini, you do whatever you need to do. Two ounces of gin, London Dry Gin. I like stuff that's a little higher proof, because I think when you're stirring stuff with ice it's always going to dilute, so the higher the proof the more flavor you're going to get. That's another great reason to use gin, is that there's flavor in it. Vodka doesn't taste like anything, but drink it if you want. And we're going to do one whole ounce of dry vermouth. I know a lot of people like to make really dry martini's, but that's just vodka chilled. That's not a cocktail, much less a martini. So I think that vermouth adds more flavor to the drink and I don't know when this whole idea of the drier the martini, the more manly you are. That seems to be some sort of power play that businessmen in the 1950's invented. I don't get it. I think that knowing how to make a good cocktail or order a good cocktail and knowing why, displays much more confidence therefore much more manliness, but what do I know. So that's it, it's just the two ingredients. Of course, if you want to make a dirty martini you'll use a little olive brine. We're not going to do that here. I like my martini's clean. Now a little more ice. As I've said before, I like to have the ice kind of peeking out, kind of like an iceberg in the mixing glass. And you'll notice I'm stirring this martini, with apologizes to James Bond. He's the only one I give a pass to, but I honestly see no reason why you would shake a martini. It will dilute the drink more, make it a weaker drink and the texture will be totally degraded. They'll get ice chips in there, you'll get all kinds of ice bubbles. A far inferior drink to a nice stirred Martini. All right, a good 20-25 seconds of stirring for proper chilling and dilution. Let's get out chilled cocktail glass that we have put in the freezer, right before I started this. This is a Coop glass. It's not the martini, the big V that you're used to seeing. I think that those are fine when they're small, although they're impossible. You've possibly spilled them more than you drink them. But those giant 12 ounce glasses, I mean can you even finish a 12 ounce martini, and if you can why are you even bothering spending the time to make it? Why not, if you need to get that drunk, really just do us all a favor drink some grain alcohol. So there, a perfectly made gin classic martini. You can do it with olives or a twist for garnish. I like doing it with a twist, but a simple green olive, I think is the iconic garnish and that's how you make a classic Martini.

Check out the official app http://apple.co/1I00csa Watch more How to Make Cocktails videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/510368-How-to-Make-a-Negroni-Cocktail-Recipes Recipe: 1.5 oz Tanqueray gin; 1 oz Campari; 1 oz Sweet Vermouth. Stir and serve on the rocks with an orange twist. A Negroni is a great option for a cocktail before a really big meal. It comes from the Latin word which means to open. So it's really something to stimulate the appetite. It comes from Italy and it utilizes Campari as one of its major ingredients, which is a bitter liqueur. So I'll get to that in a minute. I'm going to start with one and a half ounces of gin. I like to use a little more gin than in some recipes. Sometimes you see one ounce of gin. I really like that juniper flavor to punch through there. Now we're going to use sweet vermouth, a whole ounce of sweet vermouth. Then one ounce of Campari. A whole ounce of Campari sounds like a lot. If you've ever tasted it it is pretty bitter, but somehow the gin, vermouth and campari, just create something that is so much greater than the sum of its parts. Every time I make one I feel like it shouldn't work as well as it does, but it is a really extraordinary drink. And bitterness in cocktails is something that's really, really great. In food it's often thought of as a negative thing. You don't want something to be too bitter, but in drinks it's very applicable and much more pleasant. So if you're nervous about something being bitter, because you've had a bad experience, say like bitter chocolate or something, try a Negroni and I think you'll be surprised. So we're going to add some ice. We're going to stir this because it's all alcoholic ingredients. No need to shake anything. And I'm going to serve this on the rocks. I think that extra dilution really helps bring out some of those more complex flavors from the Campari and the vermouth. Lots of spice, herbs, botanical's. You know they used to sort of think of alcohol as having medicinal properties, especially in Italy and it really does sort of help settle your stomach. It's actually not a bad drink after your meal, too. It's a nice bookend for a really big dinner. Another really great thing about this drink is that unlike a Manhattan or a Martini, it's not as strong because the campari and the sweet vermouth are lower in alcohol. So it's still stiff, but it doesn't quite pack the same wallop that a martini does. Okay, so let's get our frozen rocks glass from the freezer and if you can. get those ice cube trays that make the perfect cube ice. It's really great for stirred cocktails like this one. Because they're so big they don't melt quite as fast and water down your drink too much. Okay, it's so beautiful. And for a finishing touch we're going to garnish this with a twist of orange, just to further bring out those beautiful aromatic notes. So just squeeze the oils over the top, again with the white part of the orange peel facing you, and then squeezing the oils over the top. And that is how you make a classic Negroni.

Claymation Basics | Stop Motion
Watch more How to Do Stop Motion Animation videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/514869-Claymation-Basics-Stop-Motion So you can create stop motion animated films with so many different types of materials. I think one of the most effective materials to use, of course, would be clay. And clay is a great great material for stop motion animation because it's so easy to change the form of clay. When animating with clay, you would apply the same rules you apply when you are animating with found objects. You would do things in small increments. So we have a ball of green clay here, set up with our camera pointing down to it. We're lighting with this little clip light. We have our computer, with which we'll take pictures of the clay by hitting the space bar. And we'll move our clay a little bit. We could also, not just move it, we can change it. I'm moving the clay a little and I'm taking my thumbs and pressing it a little bit flat. Taking a picture. Move it. Flatten it. Take a picture. It's great to take your time with your animation. Don't rush through. There's that sound. I'm going to flatten it out a bit more. Take a picture. Maybe we'll start to flatten it and split it as well. We're going to go in here. I'm just using my fingers to press into the clay and make these changes. I'm going to go ahead and start to really separate it. Take a picture. This is something that you want to happen gradually, in small increments, not necessarily all at once. A little more. Picture. Move it a little more. I'm pinching and breaking the clay in the middle just a bit. And there's a moment right before it's going to snap. And now these separate pieces will fly out of the frame. Something you will notice is that the clay will leave behind a little bit of clay sometimes, or a little bit of oil. And that's OK. If you prefer not to have that oil left behind, you can animate on a wipeable surface, a dry erase board, a piece of plexiglass. In this case, you will see a little of that oil because we are animating on paper. Now that those pieces have gone completely out of the frame, I'll take a few more pictures, and we'll play our film. And that's just a very very basic approach to animating with clay. There's a lot you can do with the clay. That's just a start.

How to Get Scouted | Football Recruiting
Watch more College Football Recruiting videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/505248-How-to-Get-Scouted-Football-Recruiting As a high school football player or even an 8th grader, you got to understand how to get scouted. Right? College coaches, college recruiters, college scouts, the first thing I would do is get my information online, guys. Really, really important to have your information online. Meaning, your video. And that video better be great. It better have a shadow box or an arrow to show where you line up. You know what? The only two players I know where they line up every time on the field is the center and the quarterback. So every other position, have a great video with an arrow showing that coach where you are. Make sure that scout can find you like that in an instant and be able to evaluate you because they're only going to take four or five plays. Have a great video. Get online. Know which college coaches you want your information to get to so they can scout you. Get on their radar. Meaning, get those coaches to know who you are, have those scouts get you put into their database, right? Where they put you in their recruiting lists on their computers, so they follow up. And once you get in their computer and into that database, they got to do something with you, folks. They got to recruit you. So, scouting is very, very difficult from the coach's side because there's so many athletes and they have to go all over the country. But for you, caring about you and your recruiting is easy. It's direct. Find the right coach. Get that information online. Get that video online. Your transcripts or grades, things you're doing off the field. And get it to the right coach. That's how you get scouted.

5 Best Tight End Qualities | Football Recruiting
Watch more College Football Recruiting videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/505282-5-Best-Tight-End-Qualities-Football-Recruiting You know, there's a lot of offenses that don't use a position that's called the tight end, and I love the tight end. Okay. Now these days, tight ends can also play fullbacks, H-backs. So the tight end has become an hybrid, I guess, of the receiver, offensive line. So to be the tight end, what you got to have is the ability to block. You better be able to block, or you're just going to be considered an H-back. They're not going to think you're tough enough to play the position. Right? Be able to knock the guy off the ball or at least stay in front of him, move your feet, and compete. You've got to be able to run routes as a tight end. You're a wide receiver when you're out in space. Be able to stick your foot in the ground and run that in, or run that curl, or hook, or the different routes, that seam route. Right? Understand how zones are trying to cover you and get in the hole of that zone. So you got to be an offensive lineman and a wide receiver mixed into one. And I think the tight end has got to be the best athlete on the field in many cases, right? Work on blocking. Work on toughness. Work on that, those skills to pass block and run block, and work on catching the ball. And never use your body, guys. As a tight end, prove that you can catch the ball away from your body. Be an athlete.

7 Best Wide Receiver Qualities | Football Recruiting
Watch more College Football Recruiting videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/505277-7-Best-Wide-Receiver-Qualities-Football-Recruiting One of the glamour positions in football is wide receiver. The reason is because they're so dang important, and they're the ones that make the big players. The NFL is a big play league, right? They're the ones that get all the attention. (?) College, a big place but because of the spread offense and all the different offenses now that can get the ball in space to a great, wide receiver. Now, what I'm going to look for in a wide receiver is that ability to get off the line, have an explosive first step, second step. A defensive back is not able to grab you. You cannot be held up at the offense or at the line of scrimmage. That DB is trying to re-direct you, re-rout you. You have to be, as a wide receiver, that special athlete with great speed, or good enough speed and great rout running, and great strength. You have to be able to block, and you have to be able to compete every play, through the whole play. I've seen way too many wide receivers, the play goes away. I've seen them rout where the play just came off tackle, and they make their first couple of steps and stop. Do you know who makes all the key blocks that spring from the touchdown, on those safety's? It's the wide receiver. Get down across the field. Don't ever let a college coach watch you slow down, or walk, when the play goes away. And blocking -- college coaches have got to see you be able to block the defensive back, to spring the running back coming behind you, or make a play so that the play can get 10 or 15 more yards. Those are the things that college coaches are going to see. Catching the ball with your hands - none of this body catching, right? Get those hands out there, and catch it in your hands. Work on your hands, guys. There's a great drill with tennis balls, bouncing off the wall, with somebody behind you throwing them against the wall, to work on your action and your catching ability. Important stuff for a wide receiver, right? Run great routs. Get open. You don't have to be the fastest or most athletic, or have the best towel. You have to get open. Stick your foot in the ground, change direction. Get separation, so that the DB who also can run, who is also quick, can't cover you. Then attack the football, man. Have ball skills. Know where the ball is, go get it. High point the ball. Catch with your hands. Do not allow the ball to come to you. Go get it. Those are things that wide receivers have to do, to stand out to college coaches, right? Good luck, men.

How to Do a Lap Sau Drill | Wing Chun
Watch more How to Do Wing Chun videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/509895-How-to-Do-a-Lap-Sau-Drill-Wing-Chun So the next exercise we're going to show here is called the Lap Sau drill or a Lap Dah exercise. This is a very fundamental Chi Sau drill. Again, depending on which lineage of Wing Chun you practice or what your Sifu teaches you, there's always variations for this one here. What I'm going to show you is the standard form in the WT system of Wing Chun. So when we start in the Lap Dah one partner's in Bong Sau. The other partner is actually going to use a footboard jutsu, as opposed to a full-on grab. If you totally grab your opponent's arm, you're also kind of binding yourself to them, and you give them a chance to come in and hit. As long as your hand is open, you always are free for other options and to be able to change things around. So we start like this using the Fook-Sau or Sat Sau from the form. The other hand is going to be here in the middle. This actually comes from the second form Chum Kiu and you're going to ride over the bridge, over your hand and at the last moment, you close your fist like this. Now, of course in real fighting, my intention is to go in, step in and punch him, but this is just a drill for teaching the students movements one-by-one. So we start like this, I'm going to punch and then he's going to do the same thing to me. Now when I go forward, I'm actually going to take my Wu Sau hand and bring it like this, so I can slip it on the inside, all right? Once this goes in, I turn this one flat, and then I'm going to punch this, right here. It's important not to go forward with your hand wide, because then you have to go off the center line to go forward. If you go in here with a narrow hand, you can press this one down, put this one on top and punch like this here. What we want to avoid is grappling and doing a back fist which is a very, very common error. Because again, our goal is not to grapple our opponent's arm and give them a back fist on his hand. What we want to do in fighting application later is obviously, go in and step and control. So it doesn't make sense for us to do something like this. Also, the problem with this style of Lap Sau is that it teaches the students to have two hands on one. If he grapples my arm and gives me a back fist, he has two hands on one which leaves a whole bunch of options for me to counter here. So we want one arm there at a time, like this. If you notice when I punch, I keep my elbow low, this is for training the low elbow force. We call it in Cantonese Chung Tai, like this way here. So we practice it a lot. But here we can start first on one side. Of course, later you can build in some simple switches, so that you can practice it on both sides this way here. Because you want to practice the Bong Sau reaction, as well as the whole Tiu Sau process and punch here on both sides. All right, and that's how we practice the basic Lap Sau drill.

Shake and strain over fresh ice in a rocks glass. I like to think of the White Russian as the ultimate gateway cocktail. It certainly was for me, anyway. The White Russian was invented in the 1970's when liqueur's were very popular, like coffee liqueur, and of course as we all know, it was immortalized in the 1990's by Jeff Bridges. And even though it is a symbol of irony in the eyes of most people, the rules still apply when making a White Russian as they do with all cocktails, fresh, real ingredients. So we have real cream, vodka, no mix, none of that stuff. So let's start with our spirit, vodka. One and a half ounces and I've got two three-quarter ounce jiggers here. One ounce of cream. I'm using cream here, instead of milk because we are going to shake this, which will add some dilution to it. So cream is a little thicker, and I just want the drink to maintain that really rich, delicious viscosity, you know kind of like dessert. Because let's face it, that's really what this is. This is really just an alcoholic dessert, a delightfully alcoholic dessert. Delightfully alcoholic and dangerous dessert. And a one ounce of Kahlua. There are plenty of other coffee liqueur's out there. It doesn't have to be Kahlua. That's the most common one you're going to see though. And now I'm just going to grab my chilling rocks glass in the fridge. Okay, and as I said, I'm going to shake this, because there's cream and a lot of thick ingredients, we really want to force those ingredients to mix together and stay together and we can set up our ice in our glass, too. All right, let's do this. Okay, it smells the Cohen brothers. Okay, and that very simply is how you make a perfect White Russian.

Check out the official app http://apple.co/1I00csa Watch more How to Make Cocktails videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/510360-How-to-Make-a-Watermelon-Margarita-Cocktail-Recipes Recipe: 2 oz Blanco Tequila; .75 lime juice; .75 Agave Nectar. Shake and strain into rocks glass over fresh ice. Top with 2 oz watermelon juice. When we think about cocktails in the summer, we often think about something with fruit, something really refreshing, delicious. Because really, what's better than sitting on the beach with your John Grisham novel and a delicious watermelon margarita. So that's what I'm going to show you how to make right now. The best way to make fruity variations on cocktails is just to take a classic cocktail and add that fruit into it. So I'm going to start the way we would with a regular margarita with 2 oz. of tequila, remember 100% agave, none of the cheap stuff. I mean this stuff isn't really that expensive, just none of the really cheap stuff, and three-quarters of an oz. of fresh-squeezed lime juice, fresh fruit, got to be fresh citrus and instead of Quantro or orange liquer, I'm going to use just agave nectar, because watermelon is so subtle that you don't really want that strong orange flavor in there. You really want the only fruit to be coming from the watermelon. So a little under three-quarter of an oz., because this is pretty thick stuff, just to keep the balance intact. Now here's the trick to making a watermelon drink, because I'm going to shake this without watermelon in it, I'm going to strain it into my glass and then I'm going t put watermelon juice on top of it. Because watermelon is so watery, when you add more ice to it, more water it just dilutes that flavor and you lose that trademark watermelon freshness. So we don't want to do that. We want that watermelon freshness. Give this a quick shake, not too much, because we're going to add the watermelon, which will dilute it further so just a few shakes. And I said I was going to strain it over ice, but I think I"m just going to pour it right in the glass, because it's summer, we don't spend too much time being too precious with it. We want to get back to John Grisham. All right so just 2 oz. of watermelon, I'm going to put it right on top. Oh, yeah, I can't resist. I really want that pink color in there and I think I'm going to put a nice little lime wedge on there and you are all set for the beach. And that's how you make a watermelon margarita.

I'm Mike Patrick and this is how to make a cigarette disappear. I'll show you two different ways of doing this. One, is to take the cigarette. Make it vanish and reappear like this. And the other one is to take the cigarette burn on the floor and you can immediately get it back like this. These are two slightly different techniques. What you would do is you have the cigarette and you're going to essentially do this kind of action as you take it into your other hand. As soon as this hand screens the cigarette, you allow the thumb, the middle finger is going to pull in and it pivots around the thumb like this. When this goes like this, disappears and in the continuing action you can bring this hand to your mouth and make the cigarette reappear. You can do this while it's lit to makes it a little bit more impressive. Make sure you don't hit your head and burn yourself. Cigarettes are extremely hot. Disappears. Reappears like this. The other way, and when you're throwing on the floor, and you don't actually throw the cigarette on the floor, what you do is you hold it as if you're holding a cigarette normally in between the index and middle fingers. You come in, and almost like a thimble vanish, you clip the tail end of the cigarette with your thumb and you open your hand like this. But you do it as you throw the cigarette. So, you apparently throw it on the ground. Step. Then you can immediately simply reach back in and reclip the cigarette and make it reappear. This is very easy to do while it's lit and makes the most sense because why else would you step a cigarette out. You do this, throw on the ground, stomp on it, reproduce, and continue on with whatever you were doing. Those are two ways of making a cigarette vanish and reappear.

Well, when I think of linebackers, I think of Dick Butkus and Willie Lanear, Bobby Bell, you know. There's some great, great linebackers who had a lot of things. They could rush the passer.

What does the back do? You gotta understand what you're looking at and then have great reactions to run to the ball. Run to the ball, right? To me, I can coach a lot of that other stuff. Great coaches can coach linebackers to do the things, line up right and go to the right direction and read keys. Can you coach running to the ball? That's about effort, right. And not only that, angles running to the ball, inside out, knowing which hole to hit, you know? Know you're fit. Understand that this running back can bounce it in or out. So how do you have to, then, pursue that runningback? Right, feet, quickness, flexibility, strength. Do you have the ability to get out of all the junk? You know, an offensive lineman is getting some push on your defensive tackle. Do you have the ability to make a quick decision, "Do I go underneath or over the top?" It's an instinctual position. Learn where to go, learn to read keys, understand the toughness and bring all of your athletic ability and your ability to run to the ball sideline to sideline. Now, you gotta also be a DB. You better have great hips and be able to turn those hips and get into coverage. Flexibility will help you, okay? Be a defensive back, be a defensive lineman. You'll be a great linebacker.

Check out the official app http://apple.co/1I00csa Watch more How to Make Cocktails videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/510358-How-to-Make-a-Sazerac-Cocktail-Recipes Recipe: 2 oz rye; barspoon simple syrup; 4 dashes Peychaud’s Bitters; 1 dash Angostura Bitters. Stir and strain into Absinthe-rinsed frozen rocks glass. Expressed and discarded lemon twist. There's no city that's more synonymous with cocktails than New Orleans, but only one cocktail is the official cocktail of New Orleans and that cocktail is the Sazerac. It's extremely easy to make, extremely delicious, here's how. We're going to start with two ounces of rye whiskey. Originally it was actually made with cognac, because that's a French ingredient, and as we know French and New Orleans have a log intertwined history. But over time in the United States, it evolved into rye whiskey, which I think makes a better drink. It's sharper than cognac which is very elegant, but also kind of subtle. So two ounces of rye whiskey and a few dashes of Peychaud's Bitters. Peychaud's is just a different style of bitters, similar to Angostura which is what you might be used to, but it's a little brighter and has like a quality of anise to it that lends itself really nicely to this drink. Again, it's a French inventor. France, New Orleans, best of friends. One, two, three, I like to do four dashes. I also like to do one dash of Angostura bitters. This isn't officially how it's made, but I think it just gives it a little more depth. Like I said, the Peychaud's are just very bright and I think it's nice to ground it a little bit with a little bit of Angostura. And now we need a sweetener and we're just going to use regular simple syrup. One to one simple syrup. Just a bar spoon or a teaspoon. You really want to be careful when you're using simple syrup in drinks like a Sazerac or an Old Fashioned, because they can get sweet really fast. There's no citrus in here so there's nothing to balance out that sweetness. Just enough to take the edge off the whiskey, but not too much to make it really sugary. Speaking of the Old Fashioned, you'll notice its really similar to an Old Fashioned, a Sazerac is. It's just different bitters and little tweaks here and there, but same idea. Same template, different ingredients. And we're going to stir a Sazerac, because again it's all booze, there's no citrus in there we don't have to force any of the ingredients together. All right, we've got about 20 seconds or so 25 seconds, and before I'm done stirring I'm going to grab my glass and show you the kicker to make the perfect Sazerca. Now it's my frozen rocks glass, but we're not going to put any rocks in this. We're going to serve this cocktail neat, which means no rocks. But before we do that we're going to rinse the glass in absinthe. So I've got some absinthe here and if you're wondering, that whole myth about absinthe making you crazy and turning you into a turn of the century Bohemian artist in Paris, that's not true. It's pretty much a combination of a smear campaign, by the wine industry, and just a legend sort of evolving over time Absinthe is fine to drink. You would probably die of alcohol poisoning, before you drank enough absinthe to hallucinate. So we're just going to rinse the glass in absinthe, because it's so potent and so high in alcohol. Like I said, you'd have to drink a lot of it to hallucinate, but not a lot to get alcohol poisoning. So just a little bit, a few dashes are going to sort of coat the glass, and give you this bouquet of aromatics that are really going to impact the drink when you drink it. And you can drink this or you can dump it out. It's early so I'm just going to dump it out. Mm, smells delicious. Now we're going to finish stirring. It's okay to leave your ice melting , as long as you're not stirring, it's not going to dilute too much. Just don't forget about it, because you don't want to over dilute. Now I'm going to strain this baby in there. I know this looks like a really short drink, but trust me it packs a pretty serious punch. And for the garnish we're just going to do a lemon peel. Now we're just going to twist or peel off a little slice of lemon. I don't like those knives that have that really deep thin peel, because you get too much of the pith which is bitter, and this way with the larger swath of lemon I can do this. If you hold the white part towards you and then the outside towards the glass and gently squeeze it, I don't know if you can see it, but there are oils expressed through the pores of the lemon into the drink, and oh yeah, you really get it. Even with that absinthe in there you can really smell the lemon. And I'm not going to drop the peel in there. I'm just goi

Add 2.5 oz bourbon. Top with ice. Stir. Garnsih lavishly with mint sprig. Your probably very well acquainted with the Mint Julep if you've ever been to a Kentucky Derby party, and if you've been to more than one Kentucky Derby party, you've probably noticed that those Mint Juleps tend to vary quite a great deal in terms of quality. I'm going to show you how to make an amazing Mint Julep and the key, as is with all things cocktail, is fresh ingredients. So that means fresh mint. None of this mint-flavored mix, none of that stuff. You want fresh, real mint, the fresher the better. So I already picked about I don't know, 10 to 12 leaves, a pinch, a bunch, a bunch of mint. We're going to put this into our silver plated Julep cup. This is a traditional Julep cup, back in the 19th century. I mean it wasn't made in the 19th century, but it's a replica of that. You can use a rocks glass or you know any short glass you have around, but if you happen to get your hands on one of these, do it. Okay, so we've got our mint. All we need to make a Mint Julep is sugar, bourbon and ice, that's it, no citrus. So since there's no citrus, we want to make sure that there's not too much sugar. So here's our simple syrup, one to one sugar water, and do about half an ounce on my small jigger. And now we're going to muddle the mint. Now muddling does not mean pulverizing, especially with mint. This stuff is really delicate. You don't have to go too hard. All you need to do is gently press the mint. You're not trying to crush it. You're just trying to extract the oils and you'll know that you've done your work when you can-- um, so good. I probably don't even need to tell you what it smells like. But when you can smell that fresh mint, you know you've muddled it enough. If it starts to smell kind of grassy, that means you've muddle it too hard, and released all those bitter tannin's, which you don't want. So gently muddle the mint and now we're going to do two ounces of bourbon. And since there are so few ingredients in this cocktail, I would go with a higher quality bourbon. You know this drink is really potent, I'm going to do two and a half ounces, I just decided that. You don't need to skimp on the booze. Again, quality ingredients make quality cocktails. The last thing we need is our ice, and ice is almost more important in a Mint Julep, than it is with other cocktails. Because if you've seen those Mint Julep's that kind of look like snow cones with the crushed ice, if you happen to be able to get your hands on one of these, this is a hand-crank, and old school hand-crank, ice crusher. It will make perfect little pellets of ice. I'm lucky enough to get my hands on one. You can get them for $30 on eBay, and it's totally worth it. A little extra effort, but you'll be relaxing in a minute, so you can afford to exercise those biceps a little bit. Okay, now if you don't have one of these, which I suspect that you don't, it's fine just to use smaller ice. You just don't want anything too big, because the smaller the ice is the faster it'll melt, the colder the drink will get, and the more dilution here you'll get. This drink is so potent that a little dilution is good, because it'll be too strong otherwise or you can always just use a spoon and crack the ice in your hand to make it small, but a little more effort. Ah, see that? Isn't that beautiful? Now I'm just going to take a bar spoon and gently mix this, so it gets all integrated and you see that frost developing on the glass there? That's what you want. That's all you need to do. There's no shaking or stirring, so it makes that extra effort worth it with the hand-crank juicer. Okay, now for the garnish. If you've got extra mint around or maybe a mint in the garden or something, you can't skimp on it. Get a nice two big sprigs and jam them in there and this drink definitely needs a straw. There you go, the perfect, Mint Julep.

How to Do Fook Sau aka Subduing Hand | Wing Chun
Watch more How to Do Wing Chun videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/509867-How-to-Do-Fook-Sau-aka-Subduing-Hand-Wing-Chun Fook sau is also another one of the basic techniques in Wing Chun. Along with tan sau and bong sau, it's actually one of the three seed techniques of Wing Chun. What we mean by seed techniques is, most of the hand techniques in wing chun that we use at the beginning level or at the advanced level, especially in chi sau practice, they either relate to bong sau, tan sau or fook sau. On the topic of fook sau, fook sau is actually basically an idea. It's a concept. The Chinese character itself basically means "to control" or "to cover", and the character is actually a pictogram of a man controlling a dog. Basically, the idea is to subdue or to control. That's basically an idea, so it's not a fixed technique in terms of what it's supposed to look like or what it's supposed to do. It's more of a concept. Fook sau, when it's practiced in the form, is done a little bit differently than the way we do it when we apply it. When we do the Siu Nim Tao form, one of the main functions is to bring the elbow as far as you can in, so that you stretch the shoulder, and to keep the hand and the wrist bent, and the fingers pointing towards you. Now, the reason why we do this in such an extreme way, especially with the thumb pressing down here to train this tendon here, is primarily for that. We're doing it for strength training in the form. Not that the Siu Nim Tao form is for training to become brute or powerful, but we need to train the tendons along the arm as long as the muscles on the inside of the forearm, which help to support the way that we punch. We do that primarily by really grinding out the fook sau in the Siu Nim Tao form. However, when you practice a double-arm chi sau or pun sau, it's not necessary to totally buckle down on this, because you don't want to be tense when you're practicing chi sau. While the form may look like this, when you start to practice chi sau, either single-arm chi sau or later pun sau, your arm and your hand should actually be in a much more relaxed state. If you see that my hand is actually much more relaxed so that I can stick more. One thing you don't want to do with fook sau is to press it down like this, because fook sau is an outside hand and it basically symbolizes the punch coming on the outside of the bridge here. Since we punch this way in wing chun with a vertical fist, it makes sense that our fook sau still falls in line with that here. If you do the fook sau this way, this actually takes your punch out of alignment, because we don't punch this way in our Wing Chun system. That's why you shouldn't practice fook sau this way here. When you practice in double-arm chi sau, the fook sau should be nice and relaxed on your partner's hands so that if they were to attack you, you can actually feel this one through the hands, either with jum sau or with other techniques, because you have more surface area touching your partner's arm. This is for chi sau, and then a very simple, practical fighting application is to turn your fook sau flat, this way here, so it's basically just a bridge arm or a covering hand. You can use it in lieu of using a lap sau or a jut sau. If somebody's just standing in front of me and I just want to go in and hit him like this, I only need to create a bridge and punch over here. It's not even necessary for me to grab sometimes. It's even faster to just go over like this. The basic fook sau technique with a punch in the air can look like that. You go here, set up a fook sau, punch over the bridge, drop down, punch, drop down, punch, drop down, punch. That's fook sau for application.

Check out the official app http://apple.co/1I00csa Watch more How to Make Cocktails videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/510377-7-Best-Cocktail-Tools-Cocktail-Recipes To make great cocktails you need the proper equipment. Nothing fancy, just the basics to cover all your bases. Let's talk about some of them. First, your shaker, the one probably everyone is familiar with. There's two types. There's the two-piece shaker and then there's the three-piece shaker. I like this one just because the ice can travel more. It gives it a better texture. It makes it colder. Also, you can really get into it. Give it whatever rhythm you want to add to your shake, up to you. This one I just feel like has three pieces and it's kind of constrained with the ice. You also want to have a mixing glass for stirring cocktails. Something nice and heavy, so that it won't tip over when you're stirring. And speaking of stirring that transitions nicely into bar spoons. They come in a lot of different shapes and sizes. It's really about personal preference and what is most comfortable for you to use. This is my favorite one called the Teardrop bar spoon. The next thing you definitely want to have on hand is some jiggers. Those are measuring devices. So they come in different sizes. The most important one to have I think, or the most important two are the two/one jiggers. So it's two ounces and one ounce, and the half-ounce and three-quarter ounce jigger. They also make three-quarter ounce, one and a half, one-half, you know whatever works for you. But I really find that with these two you can pretty much make any recipe and you don't need any more. After you're done shaking or stirring your cocktail, you're going to want to strain it into a glass, and that's where these guys come in. They just hold the ice back so that you can pour the drink into your glass. This is called a julep strainer. This is a Hawthorne strainer. You know, they both work fine. This is a fine strainer, if you maybe you're muddling mint or something, it'll catch all the excess mint that when you're pouring it out of your glass. I don't know why you're stirring a cocktail with mint in it, which is what I just pretended to do, but you know it'll just give it a better texture and make it look more aesthetically pleasing. The other two really important tools you want are a muddler, just gently muddling, pressing fruit, fresh herbs, stuff like that and a hand juicer for making fresh citrus juice, which is probably the most important ingredient in making great cocktails. If you have all of that you can pretty much make any cocktail you can imagine.

I'm joined by Katie Chrest Erbe at Assistant Lacrosse Coach Columbia and Kaitlyn Jackson with GameDay Lacrosse. Today we're going to talk about some of the building blocks of a motion offense. So, some of the most important things that you need to remember as an attacker is that you've got to keep the defense on your toes you want to make sure that their heads are spinning so that you can do what you want. So, one of the great ways to keep a defender on their toes is to make sure that you are moving the ball quickly. If Kaitlyn and Katie are on the same team, they're moving the ball around the perimeter of the 8 meter or the 12 meter, they want to make sure that they're not just lobbing it back and forth but that they're really putting some pace on it so the defenders have to keep their heads moving. Another important component of a motion offense is to make sure that you're creating space for your teammates to be able to work. One good example of this, if Katies's passing the ball to Kaitlyn she doesn't want to just stand where she is. Her defender can easily help shut Kaitlyn down. Once Katie passes the ball to Kaitlyn she wants to get out of this space so cutting doen and away from the ball is a good option. Another good way to create space for your teammate is passing the ball up top and cutting through the center of the 8, taking your defender out of the play. Again if Kaitlyn is just to pass the ball to Katie and stand where she is, that doesn't give Katie any space to challenge, and it also allows Kaitlyn's defender to help stop Katie. One thing that Katie wants to do once she receives the ball is read the timing of Kaitlyn's cut. As soon as Katie receives the ball, she wants to go full speed to goal making a dodge around her defender and finishing off with a shot. One reason that it's really important that Kaitlyn and Katie know what each other are doing so they don't want to make their moves at the same exact time. If Kaitlyn passes the balls to Katie and Katie is dodging while Kaitlyn is cutting, it would be very easy for Katie's defender to pick up Katie is well. So, Katie needs to wait for Kaitlyn to get past her then make her dodge and go hard to goal. OK. So, always being a threat with the ball moving it quickly around the perimeter, not letting the defender's relax and feel as though they know exactly what's going on. Making sure that you're clearing space for your teammates who are challenging to goal and also reading when is the right time to dodge into the space that they've given you. Those are some of the key components of a motion offense.

I'm joined by Katie Chrest Erbe, assistant Lacrosse coach at Columbia, and Katelyn Jackson with Game Day Lacrosse. Today we're going to talk about some very basic drills to help you with your cradling. Being able to protect your stick and maintain possession of the ball is key to being a successful Lacrosse player. One drill you can do is what we call the Protection Drill. Katelyn is going to act as the defender and Katie is going to work on using her cradle and her body to keep the ball in her stick. As you can see, she's just not using her wrist or just using her arms. Her motions are combining the two, so that she can have success keeping the ball in her stick and not allowing her defender to get a stick check. So another drill is one you can do completely on your own, and that's just working on cradling at different levels of your body. So you can see that Katie is coming low, she can bring it up high, she'll cradle on the right side her body, she'll cradle on the left side of her body. She'll adjust her hands along various points of her shaft and she'll make sure that the stick can move freely amongst her fingertips. She's not putting a really tight grip on it, because that would limit the movement that she's able to make. And lastly, one of the things that you can do with cradling is look at a mirror. Standing in front of a mirror and really watching your own movements, watching your hands, your wrists, your arms, making sure that you've got a really good flow, really good movement. That's going to help you improve your cradle. So those are a few really great drills to help you with a successful cradle.

5 Shooting Tips | Gun Guide
Watch more Gun Guide videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/515074-5-Shooting-Tips-Gun-Guide Today we're going to talk about some basic shooting fundamentals. First thing, when shooting, you want to think about is your position. With your position is your stance. You either have your isosceles stance like this or you're taking your weaver stance like such. From there you want to talk about aiming. Aiming is broken down into two parts. You have sight alignment and picture alignment. With sight alignment, you're going to line up your sights, you have your rear sights and your front sights. Your rear sights have two posts spread apart, and your front sight is a single post. What you want to do is you're going to look down the gun and you're going to line up the rear sights with the front sights so you see the front sight post lined up in the middle of the two rear sights. And you're going to make sure they're even and level with even space on either side of them so when you bring the gun up to your target, they look like one straight line across. Which is going to take you into picture alignment. You want to underline your target with the line that your sight's created and you're going to focus on your front sight. This is very important. Your rear sight and your target are going to be blurry in your vision and all of your focus is going to be concentrated on your front sight. So when you aim, the front sight comes into view, you've aligned your picture. The next thing from there, we're going to talk about your breathing control. Breathing is very important when you're shooting. As you line up your sight, right before you pull the trigger you want to take a nice breath, exhale just a little bit, and then stop. You stop breathing just a moment, you fire your shot, and then you continue your breathing. The longer you hold the breath, the more tremors you're going to have and your hands will shake and your aiming will be off. The next thing we're going to talk about is trigger control. Trigger control is very important. Where you place your finger on the trigger will definitely affect your shot. You want to touch the trigger halfway between the tip of your finger and the first line. So right in the middle, you're going to put that part on the trigger. If your finger is too far one way or the other, you're going to shoot left or right. So you want to be right in the middle and have a good firm grip on the gun. If you hold the gun loosely, your shot will be off or your gun could actually jam. So you want to get a nice firm grip, line up your finger on the trigger, and squeeze your trigger. Another thing to remember with trigger pull is you want to, once you're lined up with your finger on the trigger, you want to pull the trigger nice and smooth and steady. You don't want to anticipate the shot. You want to create a surprise break. So your body is not anticipating the shot. When you anticipate, you're going to tense up, you're going to push forward causing your shots to go low. From there we want to talk about follow through. With follow through you want to make sure to do every one of these fundamentals every time, step by step, for every shot insuring the most accurate shots possible. And those are the five basic fundamentals of accurate shooting.

How to Animate Water | Stop Motion
Watch more How to Do Stop Motion Animation videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/514863-How-to-Animate-Water-Stop-Motion How to animate water is a great question, and there are so many different ways to animate water in stop motion animation. One way that I like to do it is with clear hair gel. Now this can get a little bit messy, of course. Keep this in mind if you're trying it. But the hair gel has a great water look, obviously, when it's transparent. And what we're going to do is lay the hair gel over this little riverbed that we've created. The riverbed has been made with a brownish clay, and then we've stuck a bunch of actual rocks and shells into the clay to have that sort of bottom of the riverbed look. We have two pieces of cardboard, and they've been covered with green clay, and we've textured them to look like grass. So these are the banks of our river. Our hope is to spoon some of the hair gel right into the river and then just manipulate it slightly, animate it slightly as we're picking up our images from the camera directly above the river. So here we go. I think it's best to spoon the gel in, and you want to avoid getting the gel on the grass. You only want the gel over the rocks in the riverbed. We've raised the banks on the cardboard on either side, so if the gel does start to run, which it will as it warms up, it doesn't run onto the grass but runs underneath it. Hair gel is gross. Just going to say that. Now it's time-sensitive. Again, as the gel starts to heat under the light, it will liquefy and start to melt out. We want to use it just as it is right now in this moment. So we'll take a picture, and I may use the spoon instead of my hand to manipulate the gel. I want to do this in a very even fashion. I'm going to drag through, just moving that gel slightly. And I'm going to take a picture. I'm going to go back through. I'm going to just drag the spoon along the surface of the gel and take a picture. Dragging it along the surface. Things to keep in mind, the water in a river like this would be flowing in one direction only, most likely. So keep your movement's going in one direction, like the band. It's actually very therapeutic and soothing to animate hair gel. So there you have it. Now I can go back through here and cut and paste our frames so that we get a nice, longer animation of the river flowing. We'll play it, and there it is. Very, very cool. There you have it. This is one way, a fairly complicated, maybe sticky way, of animating water. Try this at home. Try some new water animation techniques. Let your creativity flow.

9 Best Corner Back & Safety Qualities | Football Recruiting
Watch more College Football Recruiting videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/505284-9-Best-Corner-Back-and-Safety-Qualities-Football-Recruiting The back end - the last line of defense, the defensive backs. The corner back, to me, is an interesting position because so many people think you just line up, you're quick, you go up there, you press coverage. The corner back position is the most technique driven position there is on the field, maybe. You have to understand about how to use your feet and have your butt, sink your butt, and how to be able to flip those hips and get into transition and know what a wide receiver is going to try to do to you by his alignment. There's so many things to learn as a corner that we don't think of, that we just think we line up and we're tough and we can cover and I see so many defensive backs just go out there and hold. That's not being a corner back. When I'm watching a corner back, I want great feet. I want him to be able to bend his knees and sink his hips and flip those dang hips, open that transition from back pedal to turn and run. Then, understanding the game is important for a corner. Get to the point where you have that leverage. You know that that receiver, when he's running a crossing route, that you can get in his hip pocket. Stay a little bit underneath him, so that when he does break upfield - BOOM - you're right there with him. If he's running a go route, or something, that you're in that hip pocket and you can use that sideline to press him. Playing corner is a technique position but you got to be quick, great feet, great flexibility and great hips and all that stuff. Then, you have to have amnesia because you can't remember the time you got beat just before. Now, the safety, the hybrid, part linebacker, part corner. For me, the safety, the best safeties I've seen are guys that understand the game and have the ability to read when the ball is being run and and when there is a pass. Inside out guys are safeties. When you're playing that strong a free safety and you're inside the hash and - BOOM - you see that ball going outside the hash, you don't pursue straight to the line of scrimmage and then turn right or left. You - BOOM - you take that angle, that pursuit angle, inside out, and attack the ball with your head and front of the ball across the ballcarrier. Those are important things to know and then those safeties got to also be able to cover. You've got to have great feet. You've got to have the instincts too. You have to have ball skills so that you understand that a ball is in flight. You can break on that ball and make a play. You better be a smart, athletic, tough physical football player to play safety. ?

How to Pipe Ruffles on a Cake
Watch more Cake Decorating Tips and Tricks from CakeMade videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/517439-How-to-Pipe-Ruffles-on-a-Cake Learn how to decorate a cake with buttercream ruffles in this free video. For full online cake decorating courses check out CakeMade: http://bit.ly/1upK3jK Hi! My name is Bronwyn Webber and I'm from Frosted Art Bakery in Dallas, Texas. I am teaching this online course for this three tier wedding cake on this chocolate silver plateau. Did you know that's chocolate? It's not silver. So in this course, you get to learn all kinds of piping techniques, a couple of really fast easy quick flowers and of course, how to make this plateau. But today, I'm going to show you a couple of neat things that you can do with the 104 tip. So, I hope you enjoy this little video and don't forget to check out this course and see all the things that you'll learn in it. I hope to see you there. So I'm going to show you a couple of quick side designs you can use with the rose tip, also known as the ribbon tip or the 104 tip. It comes in 101, which a very small one, 102, 103 and 104, which is what we're going to use today. There's a couple of different variations in the brands. This one is an Attico tip and so it's much thinner than the Wilton tip. I prefer the Attico tips but it is up to you and I'll show you the difference for sure. So what you want to do is have a bag of icing, any color, any color. Pink's my favorite. Put the tip on the end and there's a fat end and a skinny end. So the first ruffle that I'm going to show you is actually a vertical ruffle, which is kind of fun. So you're going to hold the fat end to the cake. So keep you fat end near the cake, all right? Let's do it! So what we're going to do is just a back and forth movement, really quickly and end at the bottom. And then you keep going a couple - and here we go again. And so you can see this will make a really neat effect if you do it over and over all the way around the cake. A really quick way to decorate a cake really quickly. It almost looks like an optical illusion. It's pretty cool! And so to finish it off, you would definitely want to put a border on the bottom or raise this up and not put it on the border yet and then you can put the cake down as well. So that's really fun but what happens if you do that same thing and squeeze really hard? I'll show you. So I'm not even going to wiggle. I'm going to have the icing do all the work for me. Look at that. So I'm just going to squeeze really hard. It does it for me. Amazing! So that's a neat ruffle trip and you can do that this way or this way as well. Now here we go for ruffle cakes. You see a lot of them nowadays. You can do them starting at the top and so what I'm going to do is now I'm going to do ruffles this way. So I'm going to start at the top and just kind of squeeze a little bit. Go down a little bit more, squeeze and of course you would do this around the whole cake. So you can see this popular design all over but normally, it's done with fondant but this is a way to do it with buttercream so that you don't have to have that much of a commitment to fondant because that's a lot of fondant when you're making one of those ruffle cakes and a lot of time. So you want to squeeze and kind of randomly, you want to let the ruffles go where they lay, free and easy ruffles. So there you have it, lot of different kind of ruffles. Now, if you want to have it more controlled, what you can do is an up and down motion with that tip and we can start from the bottom this time. So keep the fat end towards the cake and you can give it an up and down motion like this and then right above that, you do the same thing. Up and down and then above that, same thing. So this is several different ruffles that you can do with the 104 tip. You can see it would be really pretty if you did variations in the color but there you have one ruffle, two ruffle, three ruffle, four ruffle before you could even cover a cake in fondant. It's pretty quick. Also what you can do with the ribbon tip is you can use it to make ribbons so if you were going to do a top border, you can go around your cake like this and add a ribbon. You could do that again and again and again and complete this ruffle look all the way on the top. And then of course, you can do swags with this tip, which is probably the classic thing to do with it so keep the fat end towards the cake, skinny end towards you, go down and then release the pressure as you come up. Down, release the pressure as you come up. Down and release the pressure as you come up. So there you have it - several things you can do with the humble 104 tip. To learn how to make a cake like this with everything you see here, cake, icing, modeling chocolate, and piping - p

Today, I'm gonna give you my top three tips on dodging.  First of all, make some a dodger very effective is that being never plan a dodge.  They make one heard move, they read what their defender does and they react of what their defender does.  So if I were gonna dodge, I maybe make one heard move this way, if Liz bites, I'm gonna go the other way, okay?  If she doesn't go for it, then I'm just really gonna go around her.   So you never plan out your  dodge, you really just wanna react to what she gives you.  The second thing I wanna make sure to do is leave myself enough space.  If I end up too far on top of Liz and I make this move, then I have to come back around Liz in order to get by her, making me less efficient. So I wanna allow some space, maybe like a sticks length.  So if Liz put her sticks out in front of me, this is where I wanna start my move to see what she does.  Then I'm gonna react, have enough space to react to get around her.  Always moving my feet forward.  I never wanna move latterly, it'll give the defender chance to step back in front of me.  Finally, what will make a dodge very effective is their explosion out of their dodge.   So they wanna leave the dodge as first as they can.  So once I make this move on Liz, I get her to bite, I get by her, this next step needs to be as explosive as possible to add separation from Liz so that she can't get back in front of me.  So those are the top three things that make a dodger effective, reacting off of your defender, allowing enough space, and really exploding out of that dodge.

Jam-Clearing Drills for an Automatic Gun | Gun Guide
Watch more Gun Guide videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/515076-JamClearing-Drills-for-an-Automatic-Gun-Gun-Guide Today, we're going to talk about some common jams in semi-automatic pistols and how to clear them. The first jam clearing drill we want to talk about is you pull your weapon out, you go to fire and nothing happens. Okay, the first thing you do, tap the bottom of the magazine to make sure that the magazine is properly seated and rack the gun and then fire. That right there is going to clear most of your common jams. The second common jam you're going to find with a gun is which is called a double feed. With a double feed you have a round in the chamber and another round is attempting to be loaded into the chamber behind it causing the two bullets to push up against each other and jam the gun. So, you're shooting, all of a sudden nothing happens, you're going to look at your gun. When you look down, you're going to see the double feed. You'll see the two bullets behind each other, so you're going to remove your magazine. When you pull your magazine out, you're going to work the slide a couple times to make sure you clear any rounds that are left in the chamber. You're going to reinsert your magazine and rack it again. From there the gun fires as normal, locks back showing the gun is empty. The third common jam you're going to come across is which is called a stove pipe. A stove pipe is when you have either a spent casing or a live round which is half ejected from the ejection port, sticking out of the gun like this and it's preventing the slide from going forward. So, once again, you're firing, the gun stops firing, you're going to look and see what you have. You look at the gun, you see the stove pipe and you're going to remove the magazine and work the gun several times making sure to clear the jam. Put your magazine source back in and rack the gun and continue firing. That is how to clear the three most common jams you're going to come across while firing.

Watch more How to Do Wing Chun videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/509893-Dan-Chi-Sau-aka-Single-Hand-Chi-Sau-Wing-Chun When the students start to learn chi sao, they start, instead of with two arms, we start with one arm. This is what we call single-arm chi sao, or dan chi sao. And it's a very simple standard format that we start with and this is just a progression. Once the student learns single-arm chi sao, they can then progress to double-arm chi sao. So, we start in a very traditional way. We start using the frontal stance and one partner's going to be in the outside position using fok sau. The other partner is going to be in the inside position using tan sao. Now, what I wanna do, okay, before he learns to defend, is I want to attack him with a palm strike right here. This is in fact the palm strike that we have from the Siu Nim Tau form, okay? It's very important when you do the palm strike in single-arm chi sao not to do the palm strike down. Some instructors teach their students to do the palm strike here. This is a little bit problematic. First of all, if I gave him a full-power palm strike right there to the stomach with my wrist like this, I'll probably end up hurting myself. In the form, this palm strike is actually done horizontally, it's not done low. So this is suited for the palm, or of course, in application, for the face. So, when you practice the palm strike, you wanna make sure that it goes towards your partner's chest. If I have forward pressure and he gives me a low palm strike, I would just go forward and hit him. There's no need for me to chase this arm down here like that. So, when he gives me a palm strike, I'm going to use jam sao to defend, okay? And jam sao is just a slight sinking of the elbow and I occupy the center line here. What you don't wanna do is you don't wanna do anything like jat sao or pull back like this. And sometimes instructors teach our students this. This can be a little dangerous, because you're basically drawing your partner to come in and give you a hit. So when he gives me a palm strike, I'm going to use the jam sao to occupy this line. Now from here, I close my fist, keep my elbow low, and I'm gonna give him a punch, which is going to turn his arm up into bong sao, based on the theory press the head, and then the tail raises here like this. So the standard dan chi exercise looks like this: palm strike, which is reacted to by jam sao, and then punch, he does bong sao like this. Now, if you notice, my elbow is low, my fist is in front of his chest, it's not in front of his face. And the reason is because if I give him a palm strike and he does jam, and he punches me towards my face, I'm going to go forward and wedge him this way here. There's no reason for me to do a bong sao against a face punch because this will just become a ramp for him to hit me in the head. So, I will only do bong sao when he gives me a low elbow punch this way here. When he gives me a high punch towards the face, he's gonna get this one here. There's no need to do bong sao against a high punch. And this is the basic dan chi exercise.

How to Do Kwan Sau aka Rotating Hand | Wing Chun
Watch more How to Do Wing Chun videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/509874-How-to-Do-Kwan-Sau-aka-Rotating-Hand-Wing-Chun All right, so the next one we're going to cover is Kwan Sau. Kwan Sau is a unique movement in Wing Chun in that it's both, basically a noun and a verb. It's a position of sorts, although we don't really have fixed positions in Wing Chun. But it is kind of a position and it is also a movement as well. It basically means, rotating hands or like an internal rotation, and it's often used when somebody is trying to trap your arms, and you need to unbundle your arms, so you can get them out and avoid being trapped. But it can also be used to defend more complex movements, especially at the BUT and Wooden Dummy level. But there's actually nothing really mysterious about Kwan Sau or really super advanced about it. It's just a simple body mechanic. Wei Chi have it in the opening of all the forms. When we do the Gan Sau, we do the internal rotation and then we come up here. This rotation is actually the Kwan Sau rotation. If you were to do it, just with one hand and turn to the side, then you would see the Kwan Sau position. Now the Kwan Sau position is comprised of the Cross Tan Sau, which is the beginning of the form and the low Bong Sau, which comes out of the Chum Kiu set. When we combine these two movements together, then we have what's known as Kwan Sau. Now your wrist should be in one straight line, okay? They shouldn't have the Bong Sau hand back here or the Tan Sau hand here. They should actually form one line and one of the reasons for this is that when somebody tries to trap your arm, you want to unbundle them here, close to the wrist. If you have them cross too much, and somebody traps you, it's going to be very difficult for you to get your arm out in time. So the rotation needs to happen very close to the wrists. Now a simple exercise for that is, somebody's going to grapple your arm done and punch you, you send your back hand forward, as Tan Sau and turn. As always in Wing Chun he's using my force to turn as opposed to just turning by default. Now if I try to grapple his arms here, he's going to bring the other one back behind. He runs into my arm and then when I give him force, he turns. In case you didn't notice, he's only turning once he gets the pressure from my punch. If I were to just grapple him and stop here, he could actually counterattack me. He wouldn't need to turn. He needs my force in order to turn. So a very simple Kwan Sau exercise would look like this. All right, this is something very simple, very basic. Kwan Sau, this is the outside Kwan Sau. Kwan Sau can also be used on the inside, if I give him an aggressive attack, for example double punches or a scissor Kang Sau. He can use the Kwan Sau on the inside here, and this is a slightly different setup, but it's the same movement. All right?

Active vs. Passive Voice | Grammar Lessons
Watch more Grammar Lessons videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/515781-Active-vs-Passive-Voice-Grammar-Lessons One of the fastest ways to improve your writing is to learn the difference between the active voice and the passive voice, and to adopt the active voice as often as you can. But before we can start to write in the active voice, we do need to know the difference. So the active voice is a sentence in which the actor, or the subject, comes before the action, or the verb. For this example, "Batman threw Joker from a seventy-story building." Let's find the verb. In this case, it's threw. That's the action. And so our actor, or our subject, is Batman. And you can see that this is an active sentence, because we lead with our subject, we go into our verb, and then we go into our object, which is the person receiving the action. The result is a really active sentence. The active voice kind of sounds the way you think it would. The sentence moves in a very logical fashion. There is a lot of momentum in the sentence. If you wrote that sentence in the passive voice, it would look like this. Joker was thrown from the building my Batman. In this case, our subject comes last, our verb is up here, and our object is the Joker who's leading the sentence. So you can it's a kind of backward construction, which can slow the reader down, because we are starting with the receiver of an action, rather than the person who is initiating the action. Another way to look at passive construction, you might see a sentence that looks like this. Joker was thrown from the building. And in this case, the person who did the throwing doesn't even appear in the sentence. So oftentimes, a passive voice can sort of hide the actor. This can be useful. Say you're writing and email to a boss, and you need to say that your boss forgot to pay you that week. You might say something like, "My check did not arrive," without saying who neglected to mail the check. So sometimes the passive voice can be your friend, but in general active voice leads to stronger writing and a much more compelling reading experience.

Pour into pitcher. Add ice. Top with bottle of Prosecco. Garnish with fresh fruit of choice. So it's really great if you know how to make all these classic cocktails one at a time, but what if you want to have a group of people over and share all these great cocktails you're making with your friends? It's actually really easy to do that. All you have to do is pick a really simple cocktail recipe and extrapolate that for how many servings you want. So I decided to take a French 75, which is essentially a gin sour topped with champagne, gin, lemon, sugar, topped with champagne. And for the party sometimes you might want to have a signature drink or something that'll get your friends talking. So I decided to do the simplest way to create a signature cocktail and change out the sweetener. So I'm going to use ginger syrup instead of simple syrup. I keep the same recipe though. So here we go. I also don't need to shake it or do anything. I just make it in a pitcher, add ice, let that dilute, save yourself the trouble. So we've got our lemon juice, and again, just take the same quantities and measure up depending on how many you want. So that was six ounces equal parts ginger syrup. All right, and so that was six ounces, so I'm going to do twice as much gin. Oh, I'm going to use all of this, yeah. Put in my gin. Now like I said, I'm not going to shake this individually or anything. That's way too much work. I'm just going to kind of put in a bunch of ice and let that do all the work. Now don't do this too early, because as the ice melts it will get too watery. You want to do this pretty soon before your guests come or make some smaller batches, just so it stays fresh. And the most important ingredient is going to be our Seco. Always keep that thumb on there as you're going to take someone's eye out. Woo, and kind of eyeball it. It should be about three ounces per drink, but I think I'm just going to put the whole bottle in, because it is a party after all. And I'm going to give this a little bit of color, just throw in some raspberries to accent it. So I barely did anything. I used a classic recipe and yet, I have a completely original drink, and I just have to come up with a catchy name. And I usually ask my wife for that stuff, so I'm not going to do that here. And there you go, easy cocktails for groups.

Second 3 Sets of Siu Nim Tau Form | Wing Chun
Watch more How to Do Wing Chun videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/509898-Second-3-Sets-of-Siu-Nim-Tau-Form-Wing-Chun Okay, so now we're going to go over the second part of the Siu Nim Tau form, which is actually set four, five, and six of the form. So, assuming you're already doing the form, you're already in the stance, okay? Then we're going to start with the left gam-sau, then the right gam-sau, and then the hands go behind nice and tight and we do the back gam-sau, bring it in close tight to the back, and then to the front, and then the frontal gam-sau. From here, we go up and do the double arm lan-sau movement, and then we're gonna do fa-sau this way, and then back. What's very important and if we repeat the fa-sau movement here, is that the movement actually comes from the elbow and then extends out from the hands here. You don't want the movement to come from the shoulder, like this. The movement is actually the elbow, and then the hand comes out this way here, so it's like a piece of rattan or like a whip going out. And then, you come back. The right one is on top, then we bring the left one underneath - this is the double jam-sao, from there we go into double tok, which is the lifting hand motion, then comes the jut-sao, fuji-sao, longbridge gam-sao or chum kiu-gam-sao, and then tai-sao, circle, and withdraw the arms - that's the fourth set. And we go onto the fifth set, which is very short. We start with the left hand, side palm, back to the center. And then, we do the side lying palm, open, circle, huen-sao, and back. What's very important in this set, when you do the side palm, alright, is when you bring this back, to keep the elbow nice and low and to keep this in the center. You don't want to go past and open up your center line when you do this. You keep this here in the middle, and then you launch the palm from the elbow, open, and then circle as always. The sixth set of the form you go back starting with the left hand, we do tan-sao, directly like this. From here, we're gonna sink the elbow and shoulder into jam-sao. Now, the elbow is going to sweep out into what we call gwat-sao. After that comes lao-sao, which is a straight, straight scooping hand motion. Now, we're gonna have the circling hand, the elbow stays in place and then we do the low palm. What's very important with the low palm is that you land with the palm this way here, where you actually hit. Some students commonly make a mistake like this; you don't wanna hit with the edge of your thumb. You want to hit with the bottom of the palm. And then you open, circle, and then withdraw the arm. And then you repeat it again on the right side. Tan, jam, gwat, lau, huen, dai-chueng or low palm, huen-sao, and then hao-jarn or back elbow. And that's the second part of the form.

The first of those is to make sure that your cat goes to the veterinarian more frequently. Many veterinarians recommend that cats come in at least every 6 months once they hit the age 7. And this is because there are important diseases that happen with age, that start to happen around that age, that can be dealt with sooner rather than later, in order to prevent an early demise. Things like hyperthyroidism, or elevated thyroid levels, kidney problems, and even some types of cancer can be caught early, and when caught early we have a better chance of a good quality of life for a longer time. If you have an elderly cat at home, major things that you want to watch for are: increased or decreased urinary output, that means fewer times in the litter box or many, many more times, or more amount of urine in the litter box; changes in the defecation frequency; or if your cat is having troubles going to the bathroom. For instances, if your cat goes into the box to go to the bathroom and seems like he's straining or uncomfortable, that's something that can definitely happen with age and can be treated by your veterinarian. If you find that your cat isn't grooming as well, or is hiding more, or is having trouble eating, these are all things that you'll need to address with your veterinarian as well. Overall though, to keep your cat healthy at home as a senior citizen, you want to make sure that you're still providing active play every day, as well as environmental enrichment in puzzle toys. You also want to make sure that your cat has plenty of easily accessible elevated areas. Remember, your cat might not be able to jump as high as before if he's not feeling very comfortable. In addition, you're going to want to make sure that you provide lots of loving attention and plenty of fresh water. Keeping your cat hydrated is one of the biggest keys to keeping your cat healthy. And those are some ways to manage an elderly cat at home.

How to Make an Old Fashioned | Cocktail Recipes

Check out the official app http://apple.co/1I00csa Watch more How to Make Cocktails videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/510357-How-to-Make-an-Old-Fashioned-Cocktail-Recipes The Old-Fashioned cocktail is so old that 100 years ago they still called it an Old-Fashioned. A lot of classic cocktails were invented in the 19th century. We're talking 18th century. So it's definitely earned its name. We're going to start with two ounces of rye whiskey, rye not bourbon, in this case. Because I think it tastes better, bourbon is a little sweeter, and rye is also what they used back in the 19th century. It was much more popular then. For our sweetener we're going to use a little bit of simple syrup. You could also muddle a sugar cube if you want. I just think this mixes better. Just bar spoon of that, not too much or it's going to get way too sweet. Two dashes of angostura bitters and two dashes or orange bitters, which are a little harder to find, but they are available at some specialty stores and I think they're really important in making a great Old-Fashioned. You can make a good Old-Fashioned without them two dashes, but not a great one, for my money anyway. Now you notice I'm not going to muddle anything in this drink. I'm just going to stir it the way it is right now. The muddling of the orange and the cherry was something that came about in the 20th century in the '50's post-Prohibition. A lot of stuff got changed around in Prohibition. People forgot how to make certain drinks, taste's changed, so I'm not saying that's a bad drink. I just don't think that's the most classic way to make it and I prefer it this way. So we're stirring it the way it is. All right, let's get our ice, and I'm going to get my frozen glass, and the Old-Fashioned is served on the rocks. And because it's all spirit, and we're going to sip this drink, it's a really stiff drink. We don't like those ice cubes to be really small, because they melt really fast. They dilute the drink too much. Give it a nice stir there. So what I did was I took a muffin tin and I put some water in that and made these big giant ice cubes. So it keeps the drink cold, but doesn't dilute it too much. It doesn't get too watery. The perfect balance of both worlds. All right, let me grab that ice. Tell me that doesn't look awesome. All right, that should be good enough. And now we're going to garnish this, as we strain it over our nice hockey puck, with a lemon peel and an orange peel. That's the only fruit we're going to put in this. I think maybe that's how the orange and cherry muddling thing started to make it's way into an Old-Fashioned. They used to put peels on them, and then maybe people started putting the whole fruit in them, I don't know not recommended. So holding the pith towards us, the white part towards us, and just squeezing gently the oils out into the glass. As there's the lemon and drop them in there, and there you go. It may not be how Don Draper makes it, but it's probably how George Washington did the classic Old-Fashioned.

I'm joined by Katie Crest Irvey, assistant lacrosse coach at Columbia, and Caitlin Jackson with Game Day Lacrosse. Today we're gonna give some basic principles of on-ball defense. As the on-ball defender, it's very important for you to assess the space between yourself and your attacker. One of the first things Caitlin wants to do is close the space between her and Katie. She doesn't want to give Katie a lot of room to make a dodge around her. When approaching the attacker, it's important that you don't run full speed at her. This can lead to overrunning the attacker and she can easily get by you. It can also affect your balance. Attackers are going to try to make a move, they're going to put on a lot of different dodges trying to put you off balance. Maintaining your balance by keeping your knees bent, making sure that you're not putting too much weight into either one of your feet, is going to allow you to successfully stop a dodge. Another key component to on-ball defense is making contact. This is an area where the referees are going to look for unsafe play so you have to understand how to do it. As Caitlyn approaches Katie, making sure that she stays balanced, the contact that she puts on Katie needs to maintain a certain level of safety. She cannot extend her elbows and knock Katie off balance. She needs to keep her elbows bent and she needs to keep her feet moving. One thing that a lot of coaches will tell you about defense is that you've got to have the attitude that you are dictating what the attacker does, versus the attacker dictating what you do. As you approach your attacker, you want to make sure that you are directing her path. That means that you've got to pick one side or the other and continue to force her down into that direction. So remembering some of the fundamentals with on-ball defense is a controlled approach, break down your feet, make safe legal contact with your attacker and direct her in the space that you want her to go in.

This segment is about a very important card reading that everyone can easily learn to do and that is a vast importance to anyone's personal process. It's the three card cluster or the three card reading. It's based on the three figures on the lovers card which as you might remember, the lovers is ruled by Gemini which indicates that this is not only a card of love but it is a mandala of consciousness. The man on the right represents the self conscious mind. That's our every day thinking mind. It's the one that gathers information, that interprets our experience and the one you're most familiar with that's chattering all day long. The woman on the left. She represents the subconscious. She's our feeling nature, our emotional nature. The subconscious is everything we have deep inside us in memory, in habit, and what we know intuitively. The angel above them both is the  super conscious mind and this will be the highest card in the reading. It's who you think you are. As often times who you think you are is very much what you think God is or what you think the define is and nothing influences our experience in this world like our own conception of our self. You know how some people go around saying "I'm unlovable, nobody likes me" and sure enough, nobody likes them. But the people go around can say "I am so lovable. I have friends wherever I go. I can always make friends" and sure enough, they do. Or how distinctive  Henry Ford said it when he said "whether you think you can, whether you think you can't, you're right" By thinking about our self is everything. The first card down of the three is always the center one, always the angel. Why? Because we're also following the position of the pattern of the top three seferat on the tree of life. Kehter, hakma, and benaugh. The divine, the great father, and the great mother. The super conscious mind, the self conscious mind, and the sub conscious mind and together the three are a portrait of you. Before we started this layout because time is very short in these segments. I asked a friend of mine. A young man who lives nearby and I asked him to do a mix these cards and we haven't seen them yet. He asked a question that these cards loves most and what this particular reading loves to answer most, which is, tell me what you think I ought to know about myself right now. Because to understand your claim of identity and how your self conscious mind sees it and what's going on in the sub conscious mind is of utmost importance.   We did the, in order to shuffle these and obtain these, we moved the card round and round the table. I had to make them into a pack. Shuffle them for a time. He was quite good at it but you know you can shuffle any way you like and then he cut the cards, once in half and I took the bottom of the cut and dealt off the top of it. Card number one, card number two, card number three. Let's see what he's got. When you turn them over, remember, always turn them over from the side. So, that you can have them exactly the way the cards put them down. Oh, two upright and a star. We've got two cards that are Earth. We've got one card that is Air. Air and Earth have a little chaffing. Just like Fire and Water have a little chaffing, but more importantly, the card in the center is upright. He is thinking about work. He is thinking about change. Look at him. He's identifying with the fact that he is masterful because the three of pentacles, Lord of material works is upright and he's thinking of change. We read about those pages or look at our segments on pages. They are great change cards. This man is entering a new phase of life but down in the subconscious, the star, such an important meditation card, is reversed. Upright cards are evolutionary and filled with faith and going forward. Reverse cards have fear in them and the energy is blocked. Maybe he is blocked in mediation. Maybe he hasn't really developed the quest in himself because the stars about the quest. Maybe he needs to follow his inner star. He knows that change is coming. He feels that he is getting masterful in his work and he's called to do something. But the star reversed. Maybe he is being a little wishy washy about it. Maybe he's seeking his goals or his d

6 Best Quarterback Qualities | Football Recruiting
Watch more College Football Recruiting videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/505276-6-Best-Quarterback-Qualities-Football-Recruiting You know, college coaches, it's a specialized sport in a lot of ways. It's an individual sport in a lot of ways. Kickers, punters, long snappers, quarterbacks is one of those positions on a football field that is a specialized position. In other words, you can videotape a quarterback on skills video, a one on one video, and learn a lot about the quarterback. So when a college coach is evaluating a quarterback, there's a couple things that are involved. One, his knowledge of the game. His play in a game. How he handles himself. And surprisingly, you may not know this, but on videotape you can get a feel for a quarterback's feel for the game. How he gets into the huddle. How he handles walking up to the center, or getting in that shotgun, or what he does after a play. And you know, Brett Favre was one of those guys who kind of had fun with the following through, the play action. You know, we learn stuff about you when you do things like that. That you are having fun with the game. Or that you care about all the little techniques of a game. All right? The quarterback position is as much moxie as it is technique. Now, I am not going to say that I know exactly what has to happen with your elbow, and your slot, and everything else where you, but I do know this. Your stride is important. If you over stride at your target, that ball is going to sail. Watch your feet. Work on your footwork. But the most important thing about a quarterback is accuracy. Accuracy. OK? If you're not accurate, doesn't matter how strong your arm is. Right? Throw on time. Understand the game. Understand the ropes. Arm strength is really important. OK? Be accurate. Throw on time. Arm strength. Let the quarterback coach teach you where he wants your elbow, and what he wants you to do with your off arm. Have good feet. Move. Be escape-able. You don't have to run for five. All right? Escape-ability. Accuracy. Arm strength. Confidence. Poise. Are important things to be a quarterback.

When you learn the the sin lum tao form you'll actually see there are three different types of taan sau in Wing Chun. The first one that you learn is in the very opening of the form, and this one is called the cross taan sau, because, obviously in the form, you're crossing both your hands. Now, in application, we don't use two hands like this, we only use one at a time. But in the form we train two hands together simply for saving time. That way we don't have to train once right, once left and just kill two birds with one stone. The cross taan sau is primarily for dealing with straight punches. So, if I'm standing and somebody launches a straight punch at me, I'm going to use the cross taan sau like this. This is the one from the beginning of the form. If you see here, this is right on my center line and I'm able to punch my opponent here. My fingers are pointing in the direction of my attack and also in the direction of my opponent. I don't want to push my taan sau in this direction here, because it can expose an elbow strike to me here. Rather, what I want to do is close up the center line and punch right down the center like this. So, that's one simple application of the cross taan. Another one would be, for example, if somebody grapples my arm down and tries to give me a punch and I need to use it in conjunction with a low bong sound, we call this quan sau. But again the taan sau that I'm using here is again the cross taan sau from the beginning of the form. So, that is the simple taan sau from the opening. The second one you learn is what we call the mid taan sau, where we bring our elbow more to the center and our fingers are point straight ahead of our body. This one at first we use only in Chi Sau training. For example, when the students are single arm Chi Sau, this is kind of the platform for it, but then later when the students progress into double arm Chi Sau, this is the main taan sau that you're using here, when you roll in double arm Chi Sau. In the advanced program, in wooden dummy, we actually do apply this one as a fighting technique, but for junior students it's primarily just for Chi Sau. The third taan sau we have is called the high taan sau, and this one we use against, for example, long types of attacks. For example, if somebody were to give me a big, wide swing, I could use the taan sau here to defend. Because this is high enough to protect me from this one here while I punch my opponent at the same time. Okay? The reason I can point out with this one is because his elbow doesn't bend in this direction. That's why it works for that one there. So, the high taan sau, we use against big, looping swings. Again, not to be confused with a hook, this is really, mainly for a swing, and it's the basic application of the three taan saus. In Cantonese, "pan" means to spread or to open up, for example, to spread a table cloth or to open your hand like this. So, simply it means palm-up hand or open hand.

And I have with me Liz Kittleman Jackson Head Coach at Columbia University. Today I want to teach you how to Face Dodge. So a face dodge is a dodge used by attackers and what it is, the reason it's called a face dive is I'm going to pull my stick across my face in a way to bait Liz to go one way, I'm going to pull my stick back across my face and go by her. What's really important about this is that we coordinate our feet with our stick. And what I mean by that is when I come into this dodge I wanna drive this left foot forward as I bring my stick across my body. This is going to make Liz think that I'm actually going to my left. Okay my hips are going to turn slightly on a forty five degree angle, my shoulders are going to turn as if I'm actually going to run this way so that she has to step up to stop me and then very quickly I'm going to pull back, get around her and drive by her. One thing that's really important is that after I bait Liz and she bites, I want to get right around her and almost get back on the same line that I started on. So put her right on my back and get in front of her. If I don't do that Liz is able to step over. So if I go here and I come back very wide she is able to step back in front of me and then I have to do another dodge. So to review we want to coordinate our feet and our stick. Okay we really want to bait Liz by turning our body, our stick and our foot our weight going this way and then quickly pulling our stick back and then driving past her on that straight line that we started on. And that's how to Face Dodge.

But there are important things that you can pay attention to that will give you a heads up early. One thing to watch out for is whether your cats grooming habits change. If your cat is normally fastidious and suddenly is looking a little rough around the hair coat that is a sign your cat might be under the weather.If your cat suddenly stops eating or decreases there water intact those are signs that something may not be feeling comfortable for that cat. Some cats when they are sick may urinate or defecate outside the box. If you find urine or feces somewhere outside the box that isn't typical for your cat that is another sign that you should be thinking if your cat is healthy or not. If your cat stops playing the normal way your cat plays or the play decreases or is she is spending most of her time hiding those are also some hallmark signs that your cat might be under the weather. It is really important to keep these things in mind and watch carefully for them because cats often don't shown these signs until the are feeling pretty sick. So if you see them make sure you ,ar least call your veterinarian and probably go in and check things out . Cats are great for hiding things so it is up to you to keep an eye on them.
