Dive Into Havasu: Scuba Could Boost Tourism – Havasu News: News

Theres lots of unexplored areas of the lake for divers to explore. Local diver Joel Silverstein, vice president of Scuba Training and Technologies, said Lake Havasu has 900 acres of underwater fish habitat and 30 dive sites that make it the premier dive area in the desert southwest. We like to consider Lake Havasu the Caribbean of the Southwest, Silverstein said. Silverstein said the lake is also popular for the ability to be certified in four days, the clear visibility, and year-round diving season. 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. Although he could not quantify the influx of business he is certain of the increase. Traub said this article has put Lake Havasu on the map and opened the eyes of the scuba world to Havasu.

A Complete Guide to Scuba Diving in Greece | GreekReporter.com

Scuba Diving in Greece

The activities after diving at ParadiseBeach are likely the best in Greece. The daily late afternoon and evening party at the Tropicana Bar during the summer months is filled with people dancing and partying to the sounds of some of the worlds best djs. Taking in the party after a dive is an experience which makes diving at Paradise all the more fun. During summer of 2013 I visited another dive center at LiaBeach in Mykonos, which by car is about 35-40 minutes from the center of town. For those whove not been to Lia, its a picturesque and quiet beach, with one taverna being its sole source of food and beverages. Unlike Paradise, there are no bars, convenience stores or showers. There is no public transportation to take you to Lia, unlike the bus and boat which go to Paradise. You arrive either by boat, car, taxi or motor scooter. The dive facility at Lia was a shack, the owner telling me that its taken down in the off season by moving it behind the taverna. Unlike the inflatable boat used at the dive center at Paradise, the one in Lia uses a caique or traditional wooden Greek made boat to dive from. I did not dive here, but from swimming at this beach during prior years know the waters in this part of Mykonos are very clear and diving from this Spartan facility seems to have certain charms.

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. Image Credit: Giant Squid Its not a diving simulator Whatever you do, dont call Abzu a scuba-diving game. Though its somewhat realistic, Giant Squid isnt making a game thats 100 percent grounded in reality. I was recently certified as a scuba diver, so getting in the water and experiencing that environment and playing with these fish and everything there are so many interesting creatures in the ocean, he said. So one thing were doing is basing all the fish and sea life you meet on real creatures.

Scuba Diving Ear Equalization Basics – Florida Sportsman

Firefighter who died while scuba diving is ID’d | Boston Herald

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. View more – http://www.floridasportsman.com/2014/06/17/ear-equalization-basics-scuba-diving/

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.

Barrett & MacKayGetty Images/All Canada Photos It’s all about the suction-cup pads on the male beetle’s legs Male diving beetles have adhesive plungers on their forelegs that allow them to hold onto their female mating partners, a recent study published in Journal of the Royal Society Interface reports. And the effectiveness of those plungers could point ways forward for the design of human underwater equipment. The team of researchers from Taiwan saw that female underwater beetles in the dystiscidae family squirmed to avoid copulation with an undesirable suitor, triggering a need for the adaptation in the males legs. The team of scientists, led by Dr Kai-Jung Chi from National Chung Hsing University, compared the gripping features of two species of male aquatic beetles one that had spatula-shaped bristles and a more evolved diving beetle that had suction-cup-shaped pads. Researchers found that the primitive beetles released a glue-like secretion, but the beetles with the circular plungers on their legs were able to withstand seven times more force than the others proving that the suction cup posed a sexual advantage. Scientists hope that the success of the male aquatic beetles adhesive legs will help inspire innovations in aquatic equipment such as the attachments used by underwater rescuers or scuba divers.

Get Rapid Promotion by Buying Twitter Followers

TwitterTwitter was nothing just a few years ago. Now it has grown into an explosion of rapid fire updates that cover everything that is happening throughout the world. With that in mind, you can see how easy it is to get lost in the process and find yourself washed away in the flood of tweets that are going through the social media platform. If you can find a way to get more followers, though, you can make sure that you are seen and you have a way to interact with as many people as possible. It turns out, there are 3 ways to get more Twitter followers that are highly effective and don’t require too much money in most cases, only a bit of time.

Get Retweeted

Being an active part of Twitter is important to finding success and gathering a large number of followers. Directing tweets at people who are in your industry and who are the most influential can be a great way to do this. Don’t pester people, but by mentioning them in tweets you can grab their attention and even get retweeted by them. This can dramatically increase your exposure and everyone who follows them will wonder what it is you are doing that is causing you to get retweeted. In turn, they might begin following you and start interacting with, and purchasing from, your company.

Retweets are one of the most valuable pieces of currency on all of Twitter. They are the stamp of approval that gives you instant social proof. It also gives you recognition and perhaps a follow from one of the most famous names in whatever industry or niche you are a part of. That kind of interest can also cause people to find you if they are flipping through the celebrity’s following list. Seeing your name there will put you on par with other leaders in the industry in their eyes.

Buy Them

Buying Twitter followers has gotten a bad reputation in recent years. Many people still look down upon buying Twitter followers, but the fact remains that a large following gives you instant and effective social proof that can cause others to trust you automatically. You might have something interesting and valuable to say, but if you don’t have many followers already people might not be interested in following you and they might assume that you don’t offer long term value, even if they happen to come across your Twitter page.

If you choose to learn how to buy Twitter followers by doing research and make sure that you find someone that will deliver results that last. Many companies offer a lot of followers, but they don’t last or are entirely bots. A good provider will give you loads of followers that follow you forever, even if they are bots they will at least give you social proof that makes a world of difference.

Use Hashtags Right

Hashtags are how people find tweets and meet new people who are in an interested in the kinds of things that you have to say. If you do proper research you can find out what hashtags people in your industry use most often and increase your chances in being seen by someone that is searching through Twitter. Websites are available that can do the research for you, but by putting in the work you can dramatically increase your chances.

Many people make the mistake of simply using the most popular hashtags on Twitter at any given moment, which is very helpful in many cases, but it is always better to have more targeted followers. Put the effort in to find what matters to your audience and you can find out what you can do to reach more of them with every tweet that you send.

3 Ways To Get More Twitter Followers

All three of these are effective and should all be ways that you get more followers. The most effective plan would be to do all three of these as a three pronged plan of attack that makes sure you are building your following faster than ever. The initial boost that buying followers gives you will make you more trustworthy and help along the other two tactics when they are done right. Take a look at them and find out ways that you can use them to the best of your ability. You’ll be surprised by the kinds of results that you find.
