A pogo stick is a device for jumping off the ground in a standing position, through the aid of a spring, or new high performance technologies, often used as a toy, exercise equipment or extreme sports instrument. It consists of a pole with a handle at the top and footrests near the bottom, and a spring located somewhere along the pole. The spring joins two sections of the pole, which extends below the footpads. The jumper places his feet on the footpads while balancing on the pole, then jumps up or down with a bending action of the knees to add or subtract energy in the spring. When the spring is at full compression or extension, the jumper is lifted by the recoil of the spring, being launched several inches or feet into the air. This process is repeated to maintain a periodic bounce and the pogo stick can be steered by shifting one's weight off the centerline of the spring in the desired horizontal direction thus producing horizontal locomotion.
A shackle is a U-shaped piece of metal secured with a clevis pin or bolt across the opening, or a hinged metal loop secured with a quick-release locking pin mechanism. The term also applies to handcuffs and other similarly conceived restraint devices that function in a similar manner. Shackles are the primary connecting link in all manner of rigging systems, from boats and ships to industrial crane rigging, as they allow different rigging subsets to be connected or disconnected quickly. D-shackles are narrow shackles shaped like a loop of chain, usually with a threaded pin closure. The small loop can take high loads primarily in line, while side and racking loads may twist or bend a D-shackle.
The average American eats 2.2 snacks per day and gets one-quarter of his total calories from snacks, according to the USDA. Snacks can have a big impact on your health because they make up such a large portion of your diet. Snacking on junk food can lead to weight gain and other health problems, but healthy snacks can be beneficial. Nutrient-dense foods help you meet recommended intake levels of nutrients and food group servings. For example, the Department of Health and Human Services states that the average American eats less than 60 percent of the suggested amount of whole grains, fruits, vegetables, dairy products and seafood. You can work toward achieving these goals with snacks such as tuna on whole-grain crackers, fresh fruit and cut vegetables with yogurt.
As the ancient Tibetan Philosophy states "Don't start none, won't be none."
The Louis Vuitton brand and the LV monogram are among the world's most valuable brands, right after Gillette and before Wells Fargo. The brand itself is estimated to be worth over $19 billion. For six consecutive years, Louis Vuitton was number one of the ten most powerful brands list published by the Millward Brown Optimor's 2011 BrandZ study with value of $24.3 billion. It was more than double the value of the second ranking brand. Louis Vuitton is one of the most counterfeited brands in the fashion world due to its image as a status symbol. Ironically, the signature Monogram Canvas was created to prevent counterfeiting. In 2004, Louis Vuitton fakes accounted for 18% of counterfeit accessories seized in the European Union.
It's commonly believed that the ocean is blue because it's reflecting the blue sky. But this is a misconception. The ocean is blue because of the way it absorbs sunlight, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). When sunlight hits the ocean, the water strongly absorbs long-wavelength colors at the red end of the light spectrum, as well as short-wavelength light, including violet and ultraviolet. The remaining light that we see is mostly made up of blue wavelengths.
I stumbled across some pictures of Camp Forrester, part of the Massawepie complex of the Oneida Boy Scout Council in upstate New York. As a member of Troop 224, I used to camp here. I went a total of three times, I think, maybe two, but I'm pretty sure three. And always to Forrester, never to Mountaineer where the scouts slept in cabins and had their food cooked for them in a mess hall. No in Forrested, you slept in tents way the fuck out in the middle of nowhere, and cooked your own meals in either the sheepherder or the half barrel.
Responding to demographic realities that have Hispanic populations swelling in economic centers nationwide, most major retailers are developing ethnic outreach strategies that include bilingual signage in store locations with largely Hispanic clientele. Walmart, Target, Home Depot and Sears are among the most prominent retailers to implement bilingual signage. But bilingual signage is not an isolated development in these stores, but rather one element among many designed to make ethnic shoppers feel more at ease, such as having bilingual staff who can help with individual issues and bilingual call-centers to aid with customer service.

The standard dance pole typically consists of a hollow pole with a circular cross section, running from floor to ceiling. Affixing at the ceiling gives more stability, but is not always realized, especially at night clubs with higher ceilings or at transportable devices. Poles come in a variety of materials and coatings where each material possesses its own properties, advantages and disadvantages. The materials poles are made of are brass, titanium – gold, stainless steel and chrome. The brass and titanium – gold poles are gold in color and are used to enhance the grip between the pole and the dancer, these poles are normally used by more advanced dancers. The stainless steel poles aren't as popular as the other types as they do not have the finest grip however, they are used by dancers who have sensitive skin.

Have you ever wondered why cold water takes your breath away? It's called the cold shock response. When the cold receptors in your skin are all suddenly stimulated they cause an involuntary gasp and, for about a minute after that, hyperventilation. If you fall into chilly water, the cold shock response will kill you long before hypothermia does. Either that first gasping breath will fill your lungs with water and drown you instantly, or the hyperventilation will make swimming almost impossible. In the United States, 67% of drowning victims are strong swimmers, and over half of those are within ten feet of the shore or the side of their boat when they drown.

Conceived during the period of Chrysler's ownership by Daimler-Benz, the name also refers to the collaboration of the two companies.
The safety of heating equipment is a growing concern. During winter months, the potential for house fires increases as people seek warmth using electric space heaters. Electric space heaters do not have an open flame, but the heating elements can get hot enough to ignite nearby combustibles. According to a National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) report, space heaters, whether portable or stationary, accounted for more than 20,000 of the 62,200 reported home heating fires and three-fourths (73%) of the 670 home heating fire deaths in 2005. Placing space heaters too close to combustibles such as carpeting, bedding, draperies, newspapers or books, clothing, furniture, or flammable liquids is the leading factor contributing to home heating fires and deaths from home heating fires.
The Toronto Blue Jays got their name after holding a name-the-team contest during the Summer of 1976. Out of 4000 suggestions "Blue Jays" was chosen likely due to the connection with owner Labatt's Breweries "Labatt's Blue" brand of beer. Fans despised the new name right out of the gate, local politican Paul Godfrey even claimed the fans would never accept the name and would just refer to the club as the "Toronto Blues". The original logo was designed by Toronto-area graphic design company Savage Sloan, Ltd. and was unveiled to little-to-no fanfare in the Fall of '76. This core brand lasted unchanged until 1996 when a modernization was carried out by Major League Baseball for the 1997 season. Designed by Toronto designers Brandid, the new Blue Jays indignia removed any reference to the "Blue" from the team name, introducing black and graphite as the primary colours.
A bicycle phone mount is exactly the same as a bike computer mount, except that instead of a computer it lets you attach a smartphone securely to your bars, stem or top tube. An advantage of this is that you don't need to shell out for a separate bike computer. Most bicycle phone mounts are small plastic brackets that you attach to your bike and then clip your phone into. Some are transparent pockets which are part of bags you can strap to your frame, and also use for storage. Either way, they need to provide a sturdy way to carry your phone on your bike and protect it from the elements, while also allowing you to use it.
