Dystiscidae Diving Beetles May Help Scuba Divers – TIME

Fish did not seem to feed on this vegetation which provides an eerie yellow glow to the underwater environment. Hardly any fish were to be found at the volcanoes which seemed as though they too know that something violent has occurred here and as a result stay away. On the second day of diving several cruise ships were parked about a mile away. It seems that their engines were on in order to run their generators to provide on board electricity and at times to run the propellers to gently move the ship back to a certain position against the currents. The working engines provide a low pitched drone reminiscent of the sounds heard in B horror movies of the 50s, which is not at all pleasing while underwater. The noise proved an ongoing distraction and during portions of the dive it seemed that we were in a direct line with the noise which felt almost deafening.

The broad strokes, or the concept of the game, is that you play as this diver who goes deeper into the ocean, discovers secrets, interacts with the environments and the creatures. And what were trying to do is really capture the magic and the majesty of being in a new environment, having those kinds of interactions with these creatures. LikeJourney, Abzu is not going to rely on traditional storytelling mechanics. I think the narrative of the game is all going to be told through the visuals and the audio. There isnt gonna be any dialogue or text on the screen, said Nava. What were trying to do is build this what were calling this universal myth, trying to reach down into this collective subconscious layer and get this kind of story that resonates with everybody. Abzus Mesopotamian roots In crafting its own universal myth, Giant Squid looked to other myths for inspiration. Its borrowing the term abzu from the ancient Mesopotamian culture , where ab means water or ocean and zu is knowledge or transcendence. Together, they roughly translate as the ocean of wisdom. The abzu in these ancient myths is this life-giving force. Kind of like the yin and yang, said Nava. Above: Just some of the sea life youll find in Abzu.

Dive into Havasu: Scuba could boost tourism – Havasu News: News

Bait fish are common in Havasu and Kathey Weydig, who is president of Scuba Training and Technology, said there are smallmouth and largemouth bass, and redear sunfish. She said the redear sunfish have been growing large because of the invasive quagga muscle that they feed on. The redear sunfish can be seen in small schools of three and four. Traub said Havasus reputation and use as a hiking destination has increased over the last couple years since multiple hiking articles have been published, and he hopes scuba tourism will follow suit, and in a way it already has. Two years ago the CVB added a scuba page to their website and Silverstein said he saw an increase in business since that page was created.

Scuba Diving Ear Equalization Basics – Florida Sportsman

Unfamiliar with the process of equalizing, this sometimes can come as a surprise. Granted, it can be quite the nuisance for beginners and advanced divers alike. Of course, having the right gear makes a world of difference. A good mask (low volume) for deeper dives, a well-purposed set of fins, a weight belt, and a wet suit to match the water temperature, all help a diver feel more comfortable and at home in the water. The more comfortable, the more naturally equalization will come. When it comes down to it though, knowing the proper procedures for equalizing is essential. If the proper equalization technique fails to be preformed, serious damage could occur in the ears. Florida Sportsman member fishingkid315 raises a few questions in regards to equalization, in Depth and Breathing . Here are a few techniques that are very familiar with most divers: Valsalva Maneuver- Pinch your nostrils closed and blow gently through your nose. Frenzel Maneuver – Preform a very gentle Valsalva maneuver by breathing against pinched nostrils and swallowing at the same time. Swallow or Wiggle Your Jaw- While keeping the regulator in your mouth, swallow or wiggle your jaw. A diver should equalize before they feel pain or discomfort in their ears, and you can never over-equalize.

How do you capture that, and not have to worry about the realities of being underwater, just that magic? A meaningful way to interact with the sea creatures Giant Squid wants to immerse players in the oceans ecosystem, where all kinds of fishes, sharks, and whales dwell. One point Nava brought up was thebrutal way weusually treat animals in video games: We kill and skin them for supplies, or to unlock new upgrades for our character. I told him I noticed this as well, especially in games like Far Cry 3, the Tomb Raider reboot, and Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag. Thats not really how I want to interact [with animals], said Nava. I want to have a more meaningful, more respectful, more thoughtful interaction with them. Thats one of the fun challenges that Im looking forward to on this game: How do you create a sense of connection that is different [from what we’ve seen]? Above: The last shot of Abzus trailer. Image Credit: Giant Squid Whats going on in that last scene? The trailer ends with a shot of the diver standing inside of a cave and being lit by a harsh red light.

More YouTube Views Means More Traffic

April 11, 2014 // by admin27

YoutubeWhen it comes to advertising on the current market, it is important to be creative and to stay on top of the competition. Nowadays, people tend to shop online more than they shop in actual stores. This is why online advertising is so important. Since there are so many similar websites out there it is really difficult to get traffic to your own website and get your products to sell.

Only the top results from the search engines get viewers and you need to become one of those top results to be successful. But how? The answer is by buying YouTube subscribers and views. This new strategy has proven to be quite successful since search engines tend to calculate the rating of a website using the likes’ on social networks and the views and subscriptions on YouTube.

More YouTube views mean more likes and a better rating for the website that is being advertised. Therefore, some businesses have started creating online tutorials as well as demonstrations that can be uploaded on YouTube so that they can buy subscribers and views and increase the traffic to their website. Some have even started using social media networks to get more subscribers for their YouTube videos.

There are others who put YouTube videos on their websites and then use off-site links in order to get more views and subscribers and eventually a better rating for their website on search engines. It is a fact that having a YouTube channel is a great way to promote brand awareness and get a better rating. However, if you just have to wait for the viewers to find your video on YouTube it can take forever and advertising is all about the timing. Therefore, most companies choose to buy YouTube subscribers from companies that sell them at affordable prices.

YouTube’s vast power

YouTube is the highest ranking social media platform of its type. It is more popular than Google Plus and LinkedIn and any other similar platform. It is a fact that several million people watch YouTube videos every single day. This is why so many companies have started using YouTube to make their websites more popular. YouTube is a good promotional tool that helps companies reach the potential customers they are interested in and the benefits of buying YouTube subscribers are numerous.

A great tool for promoting

Once a company starts purchasing YouTube subscribers and views they instantly become more popular in the web space. Once the views of a video reach a certain number Google increases the rating of the website and it shows up on a front page once a keyword is typed in by a potential customer. Buying YouTube views is considered to be the shortcut to a successful marketing strategy and more customers as well as more popularity online. However, in order for this strategy to work the company that wants to purchase YouTube subscribers and views needs to come up with a somewhat interesting video to post on YouTube.

This is where a successful strategy starts and this is is also the root of the success of many marketing strategies. The next step is to upload the video and buy the first few views and subscribers in order to get it going and help it start gaining popularity among the viewers. Buying the first views and subscribers is a lot more effective than any other method of promoting the video since getting views in the beginning can be really difficult and time-consuming. Traditional online marketing is an extremely slow and tedious process and it does not work with the fast pace of the current market.

This is why companies choose to purchase views and subscribers from reputable companies that sell them at affordable prices. This is how the fan base gets established and it also happens in an instant. In most of the cases the companies will try to promote a certain keyword or product that can become more popular among the viewers and after a while the video will start getting views from random people too. These are the benefits of buying YouTube subscribers.

Which Direction Should Your SEO Be Headed In 2014

January 3, 2014 // by admin27

This is an excerpt of a screenshot of Referrer...Before 2013 ended, Google decided to sway the entire SEO world with its hummingbird update. With it, Google Search, which almost every business is relying on to attract customers went through major changes. Therefore, as a website owner, SEO specialist or blogger, you too should undergo the same changes. It’s nothing to be afraid of. Because in marketing, change often leads to good. Just in time before 2014 kicks in, we’re going to show you the best direction you should be headed when you’re trying to market something online.

Real time analytics should be your focal point

Google’s search algorithm just got improved drastically. Experts consider this as the next logical steps towards machines understanding the true whims of mankind. As for marketers, their jobs just got a lot tougher. Because of the said innovations and the search technology rolled out by Google is leaps and bounds better than the previous program we were using, analytics just became a requirement. You’re now expected to make the pages the center of all your SEO efforts. Whatever, black-hat link generation technique you were using in the past should be abolished this instant. It not only doesn’t work anymore, but also now Google is smart enough to punish you for doing it.

You should have learned by now how to pull analytics data from your website’s pages and translate them into action plans for improvements. Every time you’re trying to increase traffic, conversions and revenue, analytics is the only sure thing you can rely on these days.

Your Ranking Will Still Have Weight

Today, SEO is tightly integrated with metrics that simply didn’t exist in the past. Social, mobile, global, local are all considered as ranking signal in the modern version of Google search. That’s why marketers are even considering to buy Vine followers all the time. Keywords used to be the sole criteria responsible for our websites’ rankings. But now, we all have to look at a lot of different directions at the same time in order to rank good.

The only way to consistently do good SEO and rank well is to focus on content. I know we’ve been saying this for the longest time, but starting now is really the end of all debate. Focusing on generic keywords doesn’t work anymore because the algorithm just became a lot smarter.

Analyze data from all sources

As we’ve said, you need to monitor analytics from different countries in order to achieve the ranking you’ve been dreaming of for your website. Don’t simply rely in one platform even if it’s Google webmaster.

Home Based Businesses: Why You Needed One Yesterday

December 2, 2013 // by admin27

Home based businesses have become the topic of the day. This because they have several benefits that can never be reaped from any other form of business. Even a well paying job cannot offer the satisfaction that can be obtained from owning a home-based business. However, it should be remembered that a home based business, just like any other venture, demand an adherence of some rules. Those who aspire to benefit from its benefits should be willing to employ attributes like self-discipline.

Why opt for home-based businesses?

1. It is stress-free

This is one of the core reasons why people opt for home based business ventures. Ideally, home based businesses do not involve any costly travelling. In fact, if one should commute, it would involve a few steps to a spare room in your compound. Unlike the common employments where employees have to budget for bus fares, every home based businessperson has a reason to smile since he/she will have more time to work which will translate to performance of more work. A lot will also be saved because there is no traveling.

2.It has good tax advantages

The tax benefits that accrue from operating from home are lucrative. If you qualify, there are several expenses that will be deducted and this is a sure way to ensure that you pay less in terms of taxes. You should consult with your state to see how you will benefit.

3.It guarantees personal freedom

Most people are tempted to resign from their jobs simply because they want to enjoy personal freedom. Starting a home based business assures of personal freedom. This is because, being your own boss, you will not operate under anybody’s rules. You will set and adhere to your own rules provided that they are geared towards making you achieve your own objectives. In this industry, there are no orders, no dress codes and no office politics. What matters a lot is self-discipline, personal ambitions and time management capabilities.

4. All benefits accrue to the business owner

All profits will be enjoyed by a single person and that is you. You earn as by your hard work and effort. A home based business will give the owner a chance to enjoy the fruits of his/her toil. This is in contradiction to the traditional work environment whereby employees are paid in accordance to the stipulated rates no matter how hard they work to ensure that the entity succeeds.

5.It offers a chance for more opportunities (thanks to TwitterWind.com for suggesting this last benefit)

By owning a home based business, it means that you have opened up new opportunities. As you progress, you will come across news sectors that need exploitation. If you are keen and creative, you will be able to notice new ventures which are worth investing in. How many employed individuals fail to invest simply because they are not exposed to opportunities? Therefore, if you aspire to achieve great financial capabilities, you should always remember that starting a home bases business will make you to realize that. In fact, most billionaires that you hear of are home based business owners.
