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

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.

How to Make a Cosmopolitan | Cocktail Recipes

Check out the official app http://apple.co/1I00csa Watch more How to Make Cocktails videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/510374-How-to-Make-a-Cosmopolitan-Cocktail-Recipes Recipe: 1.5 oz Citrus Vodka; .75 oz Cointreau; .75 oz lime juice; .75 oz cranberry juice; .25 oz simple syrup. 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.

Check out the official app http://apple.co/1NFBXvP Watch more Best Ab Workout for Women videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/515807-How-to-Do-a-Perfect-Side-Plank-Abs-Workout So I'm going to demonstrate how to do a side plank. So there are a couple ways you can do a side plank. I'm going to start with the basic, I wouldn't say regression but, this is good for beginners. Number one your elbow has to be completely under your shoulder. You want to make sure your alignment is always intact. Your elbow should be right under your shoulder. Okay you're keeping your arms flat like this, your hand flat like this. Now, for a beginner you can keep your knees on the ground, you can stack your legs like so and you're going to lift from your hips. You can either keep your hand on your hip like this, or you can raise your arm up to the sky. Now, this can be challenging for a lot of people, this alone. You want to make sure you squeezing from your glutes. You want to make sure that hips are going up to the sky as much as you can, as if somebody had a string around your hips and they were pulling you up. Now, you're going to hold this for 30 seconds or one minute. If you find that to be too easy you can go into a normal side plank. Couple of ways you can do this. Again, your shoulder under your elbow or your elbow under your shoulder, feet stacked and you can lift from here, your hand can stay on your hip or you can put your arm up like that. Again, you want to make sure that your hips are going up to the sky you're very active in this. I don't want to see you down here like this. Your hips should be up the whole time your squeezing your glutes. If you want  you can also do it as you would in yoga on your hand. This is just more shoulder and leaning on your forearm is more core.  Now, an even more harder version, more difficult version would be to go back to your forearms come up, you can do variations with your arms to make this more challenging. So you could reach underneath you, come back up, reach underneath you, come back up let's stay for ten reps. You can come up and down with your hips or you could do something called a starfish side plank, and hold that guy. And, that's how you do a side plank.

How to Make a Martini | Cocktail Recipes

Check out the official app http://apple.co/1I00csa Watch more How to Make Cocktails videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/510356-How-to-Make-a-Martini-Cocktail-Recipes Recipe: 2 oz London Dry Gin; 1 oz Dry Vermouth. 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.

And we're here to talk about some stick tricks. So stick tricks aren't necessarily something that you would use in a game but they really are important to help you learn how to handle the ball and control ball in your stick. They can be a great tool that you use with your players, in order to um, help them get better with their stick handling skills. So the first one we're gonna talk about is the motorcycle. And the reason we call it the motorcycle is cause with our bottom hand we're kinda gonna pretend that we're revving our, our engine on our motorcycle. So as Jacks does this she's gonna rev her, rev the bottom of her stick. And toss it over the, over her head. At the same time her top hand is gonna let go of her stick. The stick is gonna roll over the back of her hand. And then she's gonna catch it in front of her. Good. So that would be the motorcycle. The next one we're gonna do is the sidewalll catch. So Jackson's gonna throw the ball up and then she's gonna catch the ball on the bottom of her sidewall. So this trick alone can take a long time to master but it's pretty fun to be able to master this one. Then what she's gonna do is she's gonna push her stick head up. The ball's gonna roll down her shaft and she's gonna catch it with her thumb. Pretty impressive. Toss it back up. Catch it. There. Roll down the side of her stick. Catch it with her thumb. So another one that you can do to work on your hand eye coordination is she's gonna toss the ball up. As the ball's in the air she's gonna flip her stick over, hit the stick with the bottom, the butt of her stick. And then catch the ball again. So this works on quick hands, and hand eye coordination. Another one similiar to this is if she goes one handed. She's gonna toss the ball up in front of her. Bump the ball up straight in the air and catch it again. So again these are just a few stick tricks that your, your players can implement. Or you could implement into your game, will ultimately help you with ball handling and enhance your stick work.

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.

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.

Muddle strawberry in simple syrup. Shake and strain into frozen coupe glass. My friend likes to say that if we all were honest with ourselves and actually drank what we really wanted, we'd be drinking strawberry daiquiris all the time. It might be true. So let's learn how to make one. All this really is, is adding a strawberry to your daiquiri. You just going to muddle it into a regular daiquiri. Just one is going to do it, because strawberries are so potent and they emit so much flavor that it is almost overwhelming if you use more than one. So there's one strawberry, and we're just going to follow now the regular daiquiri formula, 3/4 of an ounce of simple syrup. Just made it. Now we're going to muddle that. It's really just one half, two half. And, of course, if you're going to do a bunch of these at once, you just want to have however much simple syrup you need, muddle a few strawberries in there, and then maybe let it sit for a while so it really gets that strawberry flavor, really soaks it up. So now we're going to put in our 3/4 ounce of freshly squeezed lime juice and 2 ounces of white rum. Just a nice quality white rum. It doesn't have to break the bank. Just make sure it's not the bottom of the shelf. Okay. We're ready to go. We're going to shake this. Man, that smells so good. I'm going to fine strain this just to get out those little strawberry bits and give it a nice silky texture, a clean texture. And for fun, let's throw a little strawberry on the edge. I think that my friend was right. I don't want anything else than this. Do you? No, you don't. That's how you make a strawberry daiquiri.

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.

How to Make a Mint Julep | Cocktail Recipes

Check out the official app http://apple.co/1I00csa Watch more How to Make Cocktails videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/510364-How-to-Make-a-Mint-Julep-Cocktail-Recipes Muddle 8-10 mint leaves in .5 oz simple syrup. 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.

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

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

How to Make a Caipirinha | Cocktail Recipes

Check out the official app http://apple.co/1I00csa Watch more How to Make Cocktails videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/510371-How-to-Make-a-Caipirinha-Cocktail-Recipes 2 oz Cachaca; 3 lime wedges; 2 tsp. sugar. Muddle limes and sugar. Add Cachaca. Shake with ice and pour into rocks glass. The classic Brazilian drink the Caipirinha has a lot in common with the Daiquiri. It has pretty much all the same ingredients, it's just mainly the methodology that's different. So here's how it differs. Instead of juicing the lime the way we do with the Daiquiri, we're actually going to muddle the whole lime wedge in there. So I'm going to do about half a lime. I'm going to cut it into three wedges. The reason we're muddling it is that it's going to give us this really bright, fresh lime flavor that's going to come from the peel of the lime, muddling that in, and it makes a huge difference. Instead of using simple syrup we're going to use raw sugar, because we're going to grind those two together. This is a case where you can really get into it with the muddling. The sugar and the lime are going to combine and that'll take your place of simple syrup. I'm going to do two, because this is a pretty small spoon, two spoonfuls of sugar. As always when adding sugar and citrus, feel free to tweak the balance here and there. It's all about personal preference. Okay, so now I'm going to muddle these two together. Like I said, you really want to make sure you get all that lime juice out. However, don't go too crazy, because if you kill the peel it's going to get very bitter. So yes, you can muddle it hard, but you know don't really work those guns to their fullest capabilities. All right, now we're going to use two ounces of Cachaca. Cachaca is Brazilian rum, essentially. It's made in Brazil and unlike most rums, in Brazil they make their rum by distilling cane juice as opposed to molasses, which is how they do most rum. So it has a more vegetal than that really sort of sugary vanilla quality that rum can have and it has a little bit of a funk to it, which makes this drink really cool, especially with that brightness from the lime peel. All right, let's get out ice. Now we are going to shake this drink, but we're not going to strain onto fresh ice the way we do most drinks. The reason is is that you want those lime wedges to be in there, so that they create this really cool aesthetic effect, and they'll still be imparting flavor even after you've muddled it and everything. It's still going to bring about that brightness that you really want. Okay, let's grab out glass. The ever important frozen rocks glass and I like to shake this drink, but not too hard, because you don't want to break the ice up too much, because you're going to pour it right into the glass. So more of an easy shake instead of that really hard one that you usually do, but still keep the rhythm, of course. And pop the seal, and just pour it right in there, and let's top it off with a few more ice cubes. And that is how you make a caipirinha.

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.

How to Play On-Ball Defense | Women's Lacrosse
Embrace your Inner Laxhead with these Lacrosse Products: Warrior Torch Lacrosse Head (High School Spec): http://amzn.to/1MpSaKo STX FiddleSTX: http://amzn.to/1F10HB0 NFHS Certified Lacrosse Ball: http://amzn.to/1QfKVm1 Field Hockey/Lacrosse Backpack: http://amzn.to/1NuYXBi Hi-Vis Scrimmage Vest: http://amzn.to/1Nv0p6x “I'm a Lacrosse Coach Badass” Funny T Shirt: http://amzn.to/1W0WP7h Watch more How to Play Women's Lacrosse videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/515354-How-to-Play-OnBall-Defense-Womens-Lacrosse Hi I'm Liz Kittleman Jackson, I'm the head lacrosse coach at Columbia University. 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.

2 Defensive Drills | Women's Lacrosse

I'm the head Lacrosse Coach at Columbia University. I'm here with Katie Chrest Erbe our Assistant Coach at Columbia and Kaitlyn Jackson with GameDay Lacrosse. Today we're going to talk about 2 key defensive drills to help you become a great defender. A really important aspect of defense is footwork. Most coaches will suggest that you get a ladder and you spend as much time on it as possible. This drill is great for working on your footwork, not allowing your attacker to get past you. So, Katie would be approaching the line and Kaitlyn is going to make sure that she's moving her feet as quickly as possible from side to side so that Katie can not pass the line. That's a perfect example of how we play defense, you're not letting the attacker get past you. Another great really basic standard defensive drill are 1V1's. You've got to be a good 1V1 defender to be a helpful part of the defensive unit. So, great drill as the attacker starts with the ball, typically off a pass, she comes in, the defender reads her, breaks her feet down, making contact and keeping her in the direction that she wants her to go. So, those are 2 great drills to work on your defense. They can be done anywhere and especially the 1V1's should be practiced from every point of the 8 meter.

Dan Chi Sau aka Single Hand Chi Sau | Wing Chun
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.

Luck vs. Skill in Poker Playing | Poker Tutorials
Like these Gambling Lessons !!! Check out the official app http://apple.co/1HCxrup Watch more How to Play Poker videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/515036-Luck-vs-Skill-in-Poker-Playing-Poker-Tutorials Hey I'm Nicky Numbers, I'm a professional poker player, and maybe the most common question I get asked is: How much of poker is luck versus skill? Well, that answer to that really depends on the sample size. If you just play one hand of poker, it's going to primarily be luck that drives the outcome of the hand. Just one session of cash game poker is going to be largely luck. One tournament hand or one tournament, tremendous amounts of luck. However, the more hands you play, the less luck there is. As the number of hands approaches infinity, luck approaches zero. If you play tens of thousands of cash game hands, or thousands of tournaments, and you're a good poker player, you will win in the long run. Poker is a pure skill and the reason it's beatable in the long run is because the house, the poker room or the casino, only takes a very small amount out of each pot and they're not a player. You're not playing against the house like you would be in craps or roulette, where if you play frequently enough, they're guaranteed to win. In poker you're playing against other players and the house is basically just charging you an hourly amount to sit at the table. This amount comes out in the form of rake, which they take a small percentage from each pot or they take an upfront vig for a poker tournament. So for example you might play a poker tournament that's $120, where $20 of it is just going to the house and $100 is going to the prize pool. Unless the rake is too high, which it will rarely be in a casino or a poker room, then the games are going to be beatable. However, you do have to be careful when you're playing in home games or private games, because it's not uncommon for those games to have enormous rakes. Something like 10% of the pot with no cap might well be an unbeatable game for most if not all poker players. The more poker that's played, the more the cream will rise to the top. Play enough poker, and if you're a very good player, you will win in the long run.

How to Do a Pak Sau | Wing Chun
Watch more How to Do Wing Chun videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/509886-How-to-Do-a-Pak-Sau-Wing-Chun Okay, so now we're just going do a real simple exercise for practicing the Pak punch application. As I explained before, at least in my opinion, Pak Sau punch works much better as a preemptive tool as opposed to a block against a punch when somebody's coming you with a really stiff, really hard punch. It's not always easiest thing in the world to try to Pak Sau somebody's punch out of thin air. It's also not easy to move it when it's coming full power. So I offer using Pak Sau just when your opponent maybe gets too close to you, he's about to load you up for a shot and you just go in and shut him down. So I prefer it as a kind of preemptive thing. So the exercise we're going do here is we have one person just stand in a non-typical, non-Wing Chun guard. Street fighter, whatever, it doesn't really matter. And we're gonna focus on using the Pak Sau when the opponent or the attacker gets a little bit too close. You're going to see, Kaiu's going to close the gap the moment his attacker gets too close and shut him down with Pak Sau. First we're just going to do with the Pak Sau punch. Okay, again, alright. This right here, okay. To the elbow, alright. There you go. So as you see here the Pak Sau is done primarily to the elbow because we always wanna always wanna be a little careful as we Pak Sau here's the forearm, the elbow can slip in. If you Pak Sau a little bit too high, you don't have good control of the elbow, or the arm I should say. So the elbow, especially for the side arm position, is the ideal place to do the Pak punch. Okay. Once the soon as the students get accustomed to that we can start to add chain punches as the follow up. So he's going to do the Pak Sau, and then follow up with chain punches and step in. Alright? So if we do that again, you'll see a very important element if can we do it in slow motion. Once he does the Pak Sau punch, when he does the chain punches he's going to be stepping into put constant pressure on his partner. If you don't step in, if you just fan your partner's face with chain punches without stepping in he's still free to retaliate, free to punch, and he's not feeling any pressure. So it's very important when we practice Wing Chun not to stand in one place and just trade punches like this, but to actually go in and put pressure and force our opponent into a defensive posture.

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.

How to Make a Wire Puppet | Stop Motion
Watch more How to Do Stop Motion Animation videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/514877-How-to-Make-a-Wire-Puppet-Stop-Motion So, how do you make a good, sturdy puppet for animation? There are a number of ways that you could create a puppet for your animation. I like to start with a wire armature and build from that wire armature. So, I take some aluminum wire, kind of a thinner gauge like this. And I've rolled out a pretty long piece. And I'm going to fold that piece this way and then cut it so I now have this length of wire. I'm going to start at the top. The loose ends meet down at the bottom. I'm going to take my finger and my thumb, and pinch and twist the wire to create a kind of a neck for my puppet. I'm going to then take another piece of the wire, loop it out, pinch there at the base of the neck, and twist my puppet's first arm. When I pinch out the the next arm from the wire, I'm going to do it with a longer piece of wire. I'm also going to measure up and make sure that the arm is roughly matched with the other one, and we'll pinch and twist that as well. Now that we have two arms and our neck, we will pinch and twist the body. Next I will roll in the wire, wrap it back in to the back, and this will be for the first leg. You want to tuck those loose ends in once you roll them in there. It's not a bad thing to give your wire armature decent-sized feet so he can stand. You can always reduce the size of the foot later, but at least to start, you might want some of the extra wire there. Measure out for your next leg. There. And twist that in. Twist. Next leg. And you're starting to get a sort of a humanoid form, human form. This of course could also become a four-legged creature of some kind if you just bend it down. So, the wire acts as a kind of a skeleton for your puppet. But if you'd like to bulk it out a bit, you can use Styrofoam, and you can cut that Styrofoam down if you need to. You can also shape Styrofoam with your fingers. If you want to give your puppet a belly, a chest, you can add that. And with some masking tape, lock it onto your armature. We'll go back to him standing up for a moment. Another thing you can do is add a little wood to the leg to give your armature a knee. This also strengthens the legs of the armature. I'm using a very thin dowel here, but you could use bamboo skewers or even toothpicks if they're long enough. I've got the wood against the leg and I'm going to tape it on. You should always have masking tape within reach when you're building puppets. Really, when you're building anything. And I'm wrapping the tape around the wire and the wood. I want to get exactly the length of the leg covered. And I wrap that tape in nice and tight with no air pockets. Make sure that the mechanics of it work. I'm going to break that leg off the bottom there, so now I have this straight leg, and I'll adjust it and then break the knee in there as well. So, this is the only place where that will bend, otherwise it stays straight. You can do this for the arms as well. It helps to do it for both legs. Here's another similar guy. He has both of his legs already on there, and we've taped in a nice, big belly for him. So, here we have him. A beautiful armature filled out with some Styrofoam and some wood, all ready to go. He's standing, which is a good sign. We haven't even added any clay yet to his feet and he's already standing. And he's ready to become the character he's meant to be.

I'm joined by Katie Crest Irvey, assistant lacrosse coach at Columbia, and Caitlin Jackson at Game Day Lacrosse. Today we're going to talk about some of the basics of cradling. So in order to be the most dynamic player you can be ,you want to make sure that you understand how to cradle so you can keep possession of he ball. One thing that you want to remember: cradling is not just about using only your arms, and it's not just about using only your wrists, it's about really incorporating the two. Understanding how to cradle at different levels is gonna be really important in terms of having the most well-rounded game and being able to protect your stick at all times. When thinking about protecting your stick from your defender, you want to think about keeping it in front of you,. so one way to think about cradling is to keep it between your shoulders. But you'll'll notice that Katie and Caitlin are not just using their arms or just using their wrists, but they're using a combination of both along with movement in their body to keep their stick protected between their shoulders. So you also want to be able to cradle at different levels. If you slide your top hand down a bit, this is going to allow you to bring your stick below your hip and change the level of your cradle. You'll notice that Katie and Caitlin are still using their arms and their wrists along with body movement. One key to a good cradle is having soft hands. You don't want to put a really tight grip on your stick, that's gonna limit what you're able to do. You want to allow the shaft of your stick to roll and move freely within your fingertips. This is going to allow you a lot more control over the ball. A lot of sticks today have the ability to have a really great pocket. You don't really need to over-cradle. Sometimes that makes it really predictable where your stick is going to go, and the defender can get a check off. It also has the potential for you to lose the ball when your'e cradling too much, Just allowing the stick to move freely in your hands, changing the level, and understanding how to protect by keeping it between your shoulders -- those are some of the keys to being able to cradle properly.

So the first one that I'm going to give you will involve two people and Katelyn will be the attacker and Liz will be the defender. This is straight up one on one. So you can either... Katelyn can either start with the ball, or what we like to do is she can receive a pass then she has to get her body into position and then she would take on the defender trying to get to the cage. You could put a time limit on this because in a game, if Katelyn were to take this opportunity she would only have a few seconds to get by Liz before another defender would come to help. So you could say we're doing one on one's and you have to get your shot off within five seconds. So she would just go... She can go from the top of the 8, you could do them from the side you can do them from anywhere around the eight meter. The next drill I'm going to show you is Katelyn would do this drill to work on her and really this is a very basic drill where she can work on her spacing and also selling her dodge. Okay so what she would do is she would pass to Liz as a defender, Liz would pass back. Katelyn would approach her, really going full speed ahead, and then getting by Liz. You can do this starting with Liz playing just Dummy D so she would literally just be a post for Katelyn to use. Then you could step it up so that she's playing about 75% defense and then where she's palying full on defense so that if Katelyn didn't fake her out, she wouldn't allow her to go by her. The third drill that you can do, you can do this without defense actually, is Katelyn would do the three cone dodging drill. So we would set up cones in this formation, a little bit of a diamond inside the eight meter. And Katelyn would have to dodge at each of the three cones on either side. So she would start at the top, she would pick a dodge to do, move to the next one, pick another dodge and then finally dodge around the third one to get her shot off.  This allows for the attacker to be really creative and to work on the foot work of all of her dodges as if she were in a game and defese was sliding her then she could really adjust her positioning in order to get her shot off. So those are three different drills that you could implement in order to help your girls become better dodgers.

So, same thing, we're just adding on to that basic squat that we started off with. A kick back is pretty much what it sounds like, a kick back. You're just going to kick your leg back focusing on squeezing and tightening your butt. So we're going to add that little push of your leg back, squeezing that butt, to that squat. First, again, squat. The feet are a little wider than shoulder width apart. You squat down. Push those hips all the way back. You stand it up, and as you stand up you're going to transfer your weight to one leg so that you can use the other leg to kick back. So, all together, it'll be a squat, transfer that weight, kick back. Squat, kick back. You can focus on one side first. You can target the right side and then go on to the left side to burn out the muscle. Or, you can alternate. You can do your right, then squat, left, right, and then left. Or, again, if you wanted to burn out the left glute and then the right glute you can do ten on each side just targeting that right glute right here, and then ten on the other side. But pretty much focusing on when you do your kick back. You squat down, shift that weight a little bit into that other leg, and then you want to make sure that as you push the leg back, keep your toes pointed, squeeze your butt really tight as you press that leg all the way back. Then come back down and do your squat. So, again, it's a continuous flow. You're not squatting then stopping. It's a continuous squat, kick back. And that is how you do squat with a kick back.

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.

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

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

How to Play Off-Ball Defense | Women's Lacrosse

Today I'm joined by Katie Crest Irvy assistant Lacrosse coach at Columbia and Katelyn Jackson will game day Lacrosse. Today I'm going to talk about some basic principals of off ball defense. One of the most important things you can do as a defender is talk. You've got to be able to communicate with your teammates so that everyone is on the same page. One thing that we talk about with defense is making sure that you are controlling the space within the eight meter not allow the attackers to dictate what you're going to do. In terms of communication the eight is oriented in terms of the way the defender is looking. So this is the right side and this is the left side. A good example of communication is when Katie playing on the attack and Katelyn and I are playing on the defense. Using the direction I just talked about, I am on Katelyn's right side. I'm here to help her understand that I am here to help her, should she get beat. I want to make sure that I'm getting my stick in the space that Katie maybe challenging into to make sure she doesn't have good vision of the goal. I am talking to Katelyn telling her "Katelyn I'm on your right". Some people will say "Katelyn I'm your help right". There's all different terms that various coaches use when it comes to communicating on the defensive end. What matter is that Katelyn knows that I'm here on her right side to offer her help, should she get beat by her attacker. Another extremely component of defense is vision. You want to make sure that you know what's going on around you and you don't want to get into a position of having tunnel vision. When Katelyn is marking Katie she is what we call the on ball defender. Therefore her job is to stop the player who has the ball. As the off ball defender I want to make sure that I know what's going on, which means that I have to have proper vision. With the player that I'm marking I cannot be just staring directly at her. If I am that means that I cannot help my teammate who is the on ball defender. Taking a little bit of a step away from your attacker and looking in between the ball carrier and your attacker will allow you to see what's going on and slide to help if necessary. If the ball is to move to your player you can easily recover to be the on ball attacker. Another very important aspect of having good vision is as an off ball defender when you're player is cutting away. So if I was marking a player who had the ball and Katie decided to cut away what Katelyn doesn't want to do, as Katie is turning away turn and chase her putting her back to me. The reason being she's not available to help me because she can no longer see the ball carrier. Instead when Katie is up top I'm marking the ball, Katelyn is helping me to my left. She wants to back up so that she can continue, so that she can continue to see the play. So those are some of the basic components to off ball defense.

How to Make a Mai Tai | Cocktail Recipes
Like these Cocktail Recipes !!! Check out the official app http://apple.co/1I00csa Watch more How to Make Cocktails videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/510369-How-to-Make-a-Mai-Tai-Cocktail-Recipes Recipe: 2 oz Jamaican rum; .75 oz lime juice; .5 Orange Curacao; .5 Orgeat syrup. Shake and strain over fresh ice. Garnish as desired. The Mai Tai is the flagship cocktail of all Tiki drinks. Tiki culture is something that became really popular in the 1950's when people would want to travel to somewhere really exotic, but didn't exactly want to spend the money or go through the trouble of getting there. So instead they would just go to their local Tiki bar and order a tropical drink that made them feel like they were on the beach. The Mai Tai has really suffered through some bad mixes and bad recipes over the years, so if you've had one before and it wasn't good it probably wasn't made properly. But if it is made properly like I'm going to show you how to do, it deserves every ounce of the legendary status that it has. So we're going to start with two ounces of Jamaican rum. You can play around with the rums a little bit in the Mai Tai, but I think some really good full-bodied Jamaican rum is a definite must. I'm just going to go with the Jamaican rum by itself now, because I think that's all you need and you know, the simplest solution is usually the best one, right? So two ounces of the rum and we're going to do half an ounce of orange Curacao. Make sure you get a quality orange Curacao, none of that really syrupy Triple sec stuff, that's not going to do you any favors. Half an ounce of that. No pineapple juice in this drink. I know that's going to shock you. No OJ either and if anyone ever does that, tell them they're doing it wrong. Three-quarters ounce of fresh lime juice. I know that you are juicing your lime juice fresh, but just to be sure, you've got to do that. Juice those limes. It only takes a couple of minutes. And now here is the key ingredient to making a true Mai Tai is orgeat, which is almond syrup. It's not the easiest ingredient to find, but you can get it at coffee stores or gourmet shops. And it's definitely worth the trouble going to find it, because it makes a fantastic Mai Tai. So just half an ounce of that, and that's it. So we're going to shake this and strain it over crushed ice. So I'm going to get my handy ice crank. Any ice can do, but if you happen to have these on hand, as I happen to today, why not use it. All right, fill that up with ice. These were really popular back in the 50's. Maybe your parents may have some lying around. Whoa, they're a little bit of a struggle, but really worth it. Sometimes it's good to reverse direction around the other way. Yeah, good enough. Okay, let's get our glass that we have chilling in the freezer. Now we're going to shake it not very long, because this ice is going to dilute it a lot, so we just want to mix all the ingredients together, but we don't want to dilute it too much, because that crushed ice is going to do the trick. Ah, look at that. Tell me that wasn't worth all that effort I just put into crushing that. Now just a few shakes. I'm on the beach already. Now the garnish. I don't have an umbrella on hand. I don't think you need one. But if you want one, knock yourself out. I'm just going to put a little lime wheel on there. I happen to have some mint here actually. The garnish is something that really adds some authenticity to your cocktail, and if you're making it for people, something they really notice and appreciate. Definitely want a straw with this one. In Tahitian, Mai Tai means out of this world, and I think they're pretty right about that. And that's how you make a classic Mai Tai.

How to Identify the Subject of a Sentence | Grammar Lessons
Watch more Grammar Lessons videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/515754-How-to-Identify-the-Subject-of-a-Sentence-Grammar-Lessons Stephanie: All sentences have two things in common. One is that they all have at least one subject, and least one verb. So today, I'm going to talk to you about how to find the subject for your sentence. Let's start with the shortest sentence in the Bible for an example. Jesus wept. So if we want to find the subject, which is either a noun or a pronoun, um, I suggest first finding the verb, they tend to be easier to locate. Uh, the verb is the action of the sentence. So here, our action, is wept. Now, once we found the action we need to find our actor. Well, Jesus is the one who was weeping, so he's the actor, or the subject. Now, I'll give you another example. That's a simple sentence. It can be a little harder to find the subject, when you get into more complex sentences. So, here's an example. The crowd cheered for Lady Gaga. Well, let's start by finding our verb. The action here is the word, cheered. So, who is our actor, or the subject? Well, it's the crowd that's cheering. So, the crowd cheered for Lady Gaga, the crowd is our subject. It's important to note, that although Lady Gaga might be the most interesting part of the sentence, she's not the subject, because she's not the one performing the action. So, I hope this helps you understand how to identify the subject of your sentence.

En Dash vs. Em Dash | Grammar Lessons
Watch more Grammar Lessons videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/515795-En-Dash-vs-Em-Dash-Grammar-Lessons Let's talk about the difference between the en dash and the em dash. They sound very similar and look very similar but they are used in different ways. So the en dash looks like this (en -). It is about the width of the letter n. The em dash looks like this (em --) and it's about the width of the letter m. So that's how they get their names. Now how do we use them? We use the en dash in place of the word to. Oftentimes when we are talking about dates. So we might say from the years 200l to 2003 (2001-2003).That right there is the en dash. (She points to the dash between 2001 and 2003.) It is not the hyphen, it is not an em dash. It is that in between length of a dash called the en dash. You can also use it by saying January to March (January-March). Again the en dash is replacing the word to. It is kind of a short hand. Another way that you can use the en dash is if you're talking about a border perhaps.Say you want to say the Arizona Texas border, (Arizona-Texas) the en dash works well there too. We use an em dash, the longer dash, a different way. Essentially, it is a form of pause punctuation that can take the place of a comma, a semicolon. an ellipses. It is a way to set some information off in our sentence and say this is extra important or perhaps this isn't a side. Here is one example: You are my friend--My best friend-- in the world. So you can see how we have used the em dash to set off this information. It is not necessarily critical to the meaning of the sentence but it is some extra information and it adds emphasis.So the em dash can be really good for drama. In the past it has been frowned upon in formal writing but I think it is becoming increasingly popular in informal writing and in magazines, newspapers and essays. So you might find yourself using the em dash more and more.

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.

How to Do a Behind-the-Back Pass | Women's Lacrosse

I'm here with Caitlyn Jackson of Game Day Lacrosse. And we're going to teach you how to do a behind-the-back pass, which is actually one of my favorite parts of the game. So, a behind-the-back pass is pretty fancy but it's also pretty practical and effective if you are in the right position. So, the first thing that you'll notice about Caitlyn when she goes to do a behind-the-back pass, and one of the ways you can teach this in a more basic way is by having the player stand side-on to their partner to start out with. Caitlyn is going to drop her hands down in front of her and then she's literally going to drive her hands back, straight back, and up,  so her hands will kind of be in this position. And at the same time that she drives her hands up and back she's going to rotate her shoulders around and release the ball. Okay? So, again, my hands drop down. I want to drive my stick straight out from behind me. So if my parter is there, I'm driving it straight out so that the butt end would still pointing at my target. and then I am going to rotate my shoulders a little bit and I'm going to pull with this hand and I am going to push down with my bottom hand actually. So I'm going to go here and I'm just bring it behind my back, hence the reason's it's called behind-the-back. So, one common mistake is that kids get a little bit scared and they bring it in front of them and so you really want to encourage them to bring it behind their back and even allow them to snap it so that the stick would hit their shoulder here or their arm. That's a great way to teach it, but eventually you want to get to the point where your stick is not making contact with your body. So, as you advance in this, you can turn your body straight on. So, it really teaches your players how to use their torso in their game and how to use their torso in this particular pass. So, what I would do, is I would pivot my left foot, so I really want to be able to turn my hips side-on but keep my feet straight-on. So, I would turn this back foot, turn my hips, drive my hands out behind me, and a quick push-pull to my partner. So I want to be able to stand straight-on to Caitlyn, turn my hips and shoulders and really make this motion very quickly. So, this again, would be as you get more and more advanced in this skill. So, that's how you do a behind-the-back.

How to Use Hyphens | Grammar Lessons
Watch more Grammar Lessons videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/515794-How-to-Use-Hyphens-Grammar-Lessons So hyphens are basically used to link words that are related to each other, and most commonly we'll use hyphens to link multiple adjectives that describe something. An example is a sentence like this. This is a one-way street. Well in this case, the phrase one-way is used as an adjective phrase to describe the noun street. So we need to hyphenate it to show that these two ideas are linked. And one test that you can use is take away the hyphen and ask yourself if it makes sense to say, "This is a one street." Doesn't quite make sense. And try it the other way. This is a way street. That doesn't make sense either. So that's one way to know that you need to link these two words, and in a way these two words, when they're hyphenated, become one word in a sense. They function like one word in the sentence, meaning one thing. It's important to know that you'll hyphenate an adjective phrase like that when it comes before a noun, but if it comes after the noun, usually you don't need to hyphenate it. So if we take that sentence that we just read and change it around a little bit, so now it says, "The street only goes one way." Well now our noun is here. Our noun and our subject is street. And we're modifying it by saying it only goes one way. But the phrase one way now appears after the noun, and so we no longer need to hyphenate it. These two words can stand on their own. Here's another example. He's a two-year-old child. Well in this case, we have the phrase two-year-old describing our child. Now let's apply the test that we just talked about. Would it make sense to say, "He's an old child?" He's a year child? He's a two child? None of those express what we're trying to say, so we have to link these three words together to essentially create a super-adjective. And we use the hyphens to do that. If you were to say, "The child is two years old," you would not have to use a hyphen, because in that case, two years old comes after the noun. So here's a final example. Just like you often use hyphens when talking about ages, you often use it when talking about food, and here's an example. I love chocolate-covered peanuts. So in this case, chocolate and covered are both describing peanuts. We hyphenate the two to create sort of a super-adjective. And we have, "I love chocolate-covered peanuts." So I hope that that gives you some ideas about how to use a hyphen in your sentences.

I'm the head coach at Columbia University. I'm joined today by and Katie Chrest Erbe, Assistant Coach at Columbia and Kaitlyn Jackson at GameDay Lacrosse. Today we're gong to give you top 3 tips for catching. As you'll see with Katie and Kaitlyn passing in the background, the grip on their stick is loose. It's what we call soft hands. You don't want to put a very tight grip around the shaft of your stick, it would cause for the ball bouncing out of the stick head because the grip is too rigid. Next tip, you want to be sure that you give your teammate a target, she's got to know where to throw the ball. Third tip, make sure that when you're catching, you're not snagging the ball out of the air. You're not grabbing it. In most cases that will result with the ball on the ground. You want to make sure that by using your body and your stick you're giving with the ball. Giving it time to settle into the head of your stick, so that you can then make a proper throw. So remember, use soft hands, give your teammate a target, and give with the ball as it's coming into your stick.

How to Do Biu Sau aka Thrusting Hand | Wing Chun
Watch more How to Do Wing Chun videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/509882-How-to-Do-Biu-Sau-aka-Thrusting-Hand-Wing-Chun Biu Jee Sau or Bui Sau in Wing Chun is also another important technique. It comes up a couple times in the Wing Chun system. You actually have it as early as the Siu Nim Tao form. You have the double Biu Jee Sau in the fourth set of the Siu Nim Tao form. But when we're normally talking about the Biu Jee Sau itself, normally we refer to the version that comes in the Biu Jee form, and that is done a little bit differently, than the way it's done in the Siu Nim Tao form. First of all, everything in the Siu Nim Tao Chong Ki level, or I should say most things at the Siu Nim Tao Chong Ki level operate coming from the center. That's why we have a motto in Wing Chun, which is Kuen Yao Sum Faat which means fist comes from the heart, all right? That means that everything is coming from the center. It also means that when you fight, you fight with your heart. Well, at the Biu Jee level, sometimes we get in a situation where we can't always go down the center or we're not able to, or for example, we're fighting another Wing Chun person who very strongly occupies the center and we need an edge. We need something that can give us an advantage over somebody who's using similar techniques against ourselves. So the Biu Jee movement actually starts from the side here. You see some people, they practice Biu Jee here in the center, but the concept is not much different from Siu Nim Tao in Chum Kiu. Actually, the Biu Jee should be part underneath your tricep, behind your elbow, so if I were to take away this arm you would actually see that this goes to the side. This is because it gives me a spatial advantage over this Siu Nim Tao and Chum Kiu wedge format. All right, if somebody gives me a punch all right, and when you learn Siu Nim Tao and Chum Kiu normally, your idea is to go forward and send your hand forward like this. This wedge here can protect anything that comes on this side. But if his arm is a little bit off to the side, all right, I usually have to switch hands or I have to use my backup arm to protect. The nice thing about the Biu Jee, because it comes from the side here, is that it completely wipes the slate clean to the center. Instead of going from the middle to the endpoint here, I go from the side to the center and I actually cover this entire space with one movement, instead of needing a backup hand to cover the inside space here. So Biu Jee is much safer because it covers a wider swath of territory. So for example, if he fires a punch at me and I'm caught off guard, I can just shoot this one in here, and then after that, I can go and follow up with anything I want. Biu Jee is not primarily used as an eye strike. It can be used as an eye strike, normally accidentally and I wouldn't suggest that you actually use the fingertips to strike somebody on the head. There are some people that use Biu Jee as like a striking technique to the head. My fear about that is, that when I'm sending my hands towards my opponents head he's ducking his head down and I'm going to end up crashing on the top of his head. There's much more solid and standard ways to hit somebody in the face, then necessarily using your fingers in an outstretched kind of way, especially under the adrenaline of a fight and the fear that you have, and that kind of frantic pace. It's not necessarily easy to do something like this, so Biu Jee is more of a defensive or clearing technique, which can also be used to attack. But it's not necessarily an eye strike as many people tout it to be.
