Cyclone swell was pounding our coast last weekend, well mainly Sunday to Tuesday. Thereafter we've been pounded with school work... Geeeezzz, I thought Grade 11 was suppose to be heavier than Gr12.

Otherwise, I managed to get in contact with Marqua at Wavescape. Super stokked of my video that's on their home page!!

Coffee - What's good about it?

Sunday, February 20, 2011

  • Increases Alertness: Caffeine is a well-known stimulant and is known to increase alertness in individuals. This is because it stimulates the nervous system and regulates blood pressure and intestinal functions in the body.
  • Stimulating Breath – Caffeine dilates and opens up the airways, and is great for those who face breathing difficulties such as asthma/bronchitis. People who have recently undergone a surgery are sometimes treated with caffeine to help stimulate breathing.
  • Rich in Antioxidants – As you might already know, your cup of java is extremely rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants protect against the free radical damage in the body, prevent high blood pressure and pre-mature aging.
  • Weight Loss – Coffee can help burn extra calories by boosting your metabolism. A cup of Coffee in the morning can give you instant energy and help you workout and exercise for longer duration.  It is also low in calories. Of course the extra cream and sugar have to be done away with!
  • Treating Migraines – Ever wondered how a cup of coffee can dissolve away your headache within minutes? Caffeine has analgesic properties, and is even a common ingredient used in over-the-counter painkillers.
  • Diuretic functions – Caffeine content in coffee causes the kidneys to produce more urine, which helps in flushing out the toxins from the body.
  • Improved Brain Function – People who consume 2-3 cups of coffee every day are more productive at work and remember things better. As per a recent study, coffee drinkers are less likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease in their golden years.
  • Type 2 Diabetes – Several studies have shown that Chlorgoenic acid found in coffee can prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes. Caffeine is known to raise blood sugar levels and increase energy expenditure in the short-term. It also increases your body’s insulin sensitivity, lowering the risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes.
  • Cancer - As per a study conducted by the Harvard Medical School, regular coffee drinkers are 50% less likely to suffer from breast, colon and prostate cancer. This can be attributed to the high antioxidant content in coffee.
  • Liver Cirrhosis – Cirrhosis of Liver refers to the scarring of Liver tissues and is a common ailment amongst alcoholics. A wide range of studies conducted under different settings, have all shown that those who drink 3-4 cups of coffee everyday are 80% less likely to suffer from Liver Cirrhosis.

Battlefield 3 - Confirmed

Thursday, February 10, 2011

-Aiming for CY Q4 2011 release
-Concept for BF3 has been in the works for years, waiting on proper tech to seamlessly come together
-Frosbite 2.0 is the culmination of this tech, entirely re-written
-Lighting sounds neat, one "probe" contains more lighting information than an entire BFBC2 level.
-Level destruction is going to be "believable" but basically everything is destructible.
-Character animations powered by ANT, what EA Sports uses.
-AI characters and multiplayer characters have different animation sets
-No more "gliding" animations that look off, animation realism is a focus
-Captured their own war audios (bullets, tanks, helicopters, etc) at different distances to ensure realism
-Better audio cues for certain actions, more easily able to listen for threats
-Plan on better, more immediate post release content
-More unlocks than BFBC2
-Dice trying to find a good balance between customization of your character and not having "pink rabbit hat(s)"
-4 classes
-Will talk about squads "later"
-Looking into a theater mode but can't talk about it
-Will have co-op
-There will be a kill-cam but it can be turned off
-BF3's team is almost twice as big as the team for BFBC2
-They want the pacing of the single player mode to be balanced, with highs and lows. Makes the comparison to a song vs a guitar solo.
-Part of the single player mode takes place in Sulaymaniyah - Iraqi Kurdistan.
-"Fuck" will be used often, so M rated for sure
-There will be an earthquake in a level. The destruction sounds very impressive. 7 story building collapses, looks very well done
-Significant narrative that goes with the SP mode
-More than one setting, you're not in the middle east for the whole game
-PC version is lead version
-Why 64 players for PC only? No complains from the console crowd.
-No mod tools at release. Maybe none down the line either. Frosbite 2.0 is complex and mods tools would have to be dumbed down, so does Dice really want to put their time to that or would it be better spent elsewhere?
-Original story, not based on Bad Company at all.

East please go away!

Friday, February 4, 2011
Waited so long for the weekend! Going to be one boring un-surfable  - well was expecting it at least.
Weather chart from http://www.windguru.cz/int/index.php?sc=4865

Lets hope all this east creates a fun bank or two. Craving some barrels, which I won't really get now unless I go charge some thick death-wish slab unfolding onto dry reef.... but that's not an option.

Wherever you are in the world, hope you get some waves this weekend or do something else more exciting. I guess I will be parked in front of my PC and PS3 most of the weekend.

Enjoy

Surf Story 2010 - Scottburgh

Wednesday, February 2, 2011
In the April holidays of 2010, I was lucky to paddle out at a semi secret localized spot for my first time even though it wasn't quite doing it's thing - was still heavy.

I also got waves at Back beach and and surf'd the heaviest Close-out bank at main beach; Not much size, just power and beauty.

In the long July holiday and I was stunned how good main beach can actually get. Perfect waves of point running for hundreds of meters in one cylindrical shape, no matter what size and what wind was blowing.

During the September holiday's, the inside bowl went absolutely mad. The occasional wedge or backwash coming through every now and then also added tons more excitement.

And now, this November holidays so far 'welcomed' me with 1ft mush and pumping onshores. Things changed quickly and had a few good days, considering it's summer. Had some good fun on the load tides, behind point.

The last day of 2010, I was lucky to score almost by myself some fun hollow Backbeach barrels. What a great way to end 2010.

Lets wait and see what the rest of 2011 have for us!
