Thunder Bay Holds The Future

There was a conference held within Thunder Bay which brought mayors from US Cities and Canadian Cities located around the Great Lakes with one another. Each one of these mayors joined with one another to speak about the future of our great lakes. Essentially they spoke about how they can protect the natural eco-system of the lakes while still turning a profit for local business. The Great Lakes are the largest bodies of water known to man with fresh water. The majority of the world is Salt Water and losing the great lakes just simply can’t be an option.

In order to protect the great lakes these mayors have decided that they will put in place new laws within their cities that requires vehicles be parked away from the lakes a minimum two thousand meters away. This way the pollution of gasoline wouldn’t be so direct to the ocean. A new law which will be put in place towards the end of the summer will require food businesses be at least a half a mile away from the lakes, this way people will have to more than likely throw out their garbage on the way back. This in return would mean less garbage being dumped into our great lakes.

Though it might not be much for now it is a start, the conference will last three days in which many new laws and changes can be made effective. We will keep you updated on any new information released on the Thunder Bay Conference.

The Great Lakes Are Ice Free

Every year Canada goes through four different seasons that are all beautiful in their own way. First winter, then spring, summer and then the fall. As the process repeats the weather around us and our surrounding change in front of our eyes. One of the lovely things about Summer is that we get to see all of the flowers bloom, our lakes melt away and our beaches become filled with warmth due to the sun. Today the Weather Network reported that all of the ice in each one of the great lakes have finally melted. This is the longest time that it has taken for the ice to melt since 1970, showing that temperatures in Canada are cooling with each passing year.

On the positive side of things this means that Canadians can finally return to the beach for the next few months. Canadians only get three to four months of beach weather a year so when it comes around the beaches are filled with children, adults and teenagers all enjoying themselves. It is truly the time period where Canadians become alive and embrace their country for its natural beauty.

Dayna Vettese, a Meteorologist for the Weather Network said the following during her broadcast: “Canadians get ready to bring out your swim trunks and towels as all of the ice in the great lakes have finally melted and temperatures within the waters are starting to rise. Come a week’s time we will be able to return to our beaches.”

Playstation 4 Outsells Xbox One

Sony was proud to announce today that for a fourth straight month in a row the Playstation 4 has been able to outsell the Xbox One. This is an incredible feat for Sony as last generation Microsoft was able to dominate the console space with the Xbox 360. The 360 still has outsold more copies than the Playstation 3 and it’s doubtful that the PS3 will outsell the 360 in its last few years.

Sony revealed this information at a press conference in New York City saying, “We are pleased to announce that for four straight months in a row the Playstation 4 has been able to outsell the Xbox One. We owe this all to the developers who have been hard at work the last couple of years creating games for when we first launched the Playstation 4 back in November. We hope that we continue to rise in sales and become the dominating force in the next generation console market.”

Sony does have some troubles ahead of them though as the Xbox One just had a price drop down to $400, the catch is that this Xbox One doesn’t come with connect. Games such as Titanfall have been sought after by last generation gamers and PS4 Gamers. The price drop will allow for more people to purchase the console alongside the game which could result in Sony losing a mass amount of space in the console wars. We suspect that Sony will also price drop their new console if they begin to lose sales.”

Welcome to Greatlakesdarts.com,

The historic international game of darts has long been a favourite for both pro and leisure players in countries worldwide with a particularly strong following in the United Kingdome, Scandinavian countries and in North America. Whether players have an appetite for competition and a desire to grow into the top ranks or simply enjoy passing an evening alongside of mates at the local pub, the popularity of darts has not waned for many centuries.

Darts

Classically known as a standardized skills game where players fire the pointed missiles in attempt to score points on a target, the game has a variety of interpretations based on skills levels, regions and degree of seriousness to which it is played.

The primary game consists of two players each taking turns to launch three darts at the board in an effort to decrease the score from a fixed starting point, generally 501, to nothing in order to win the game of “check out”. Though rules may vary, most often players must hit a double segment to begin to reduce the score, a practice that is called “doubling in”. This also holds true for winning a game as the final dart must either hit the centre spot or the “bullseye” or a double score segment of the board to end the round. Should the player land a dart to move the score to the desired goal of zero or beyond without striking either the bullseye or double segment, this is known as “going bust” and does not determine a win. Rather, the player then forfeits that turn with no change in score and the play continues.

Different regions often have variations on the game or the rules such as “Round the Clock” or “Cricket” that take an alternate approach to scoring while maintaining the basic practice of throwing the darts. Depending on where you travel, you’ll always find one version or another that is a product of the local culture.

With a great variety of regional groups and associations focused on this competitive sport, enthusiasts will find that not only can they enjoy the challenge of building their skills around the game but they can also take advantage of the social dynamic and the basis of fun that embodies the contest. Isn’t that the primary reason to take up any hobby?

Darts is wonderful avenue by which to kick back at the end of the day to relieve stress, enhance their team building skills and fine tune their power of focus and concentration. Regular play will help you to develop motor skills and leadership abilities, manage conflict and stress and create a welcomed reprieve from day to day tensions or monotony. Devotees of the game don’t need to conform to any typical physical level of fitness which makes it an excellent game for all ages, genders and body types and enables players to include any group of friends or family members in this pleasurable pastime.

Regardless of whether you’re a serious player or just tried it recently at your local pub, visit this site to keep up to date on news and information on the game of darts, including happenings in the professional world, possible tips, anecdotes and more!
