How to Spot a Huge Options Winner

142 Naturally, everyone wants to learn how to spot a huge options winner. However, this task is no easy feat. The natural recourse of stock trading always evolves within these elements- anticipation and perfect timing. Many rookie traders tend to believe that every trade is a big winner. On the contrary, this may not seem to be the case. Many players tend to ignore small profits, all because they want to generate income right away. On the other hand, with the current situation in the market, you have to think twice before earning big. Re consider small profits in the process. Besides, it is better to play your game by trying to make both ends meet, be it through big or small income. Many have also relied on good research as a means of learning how to spot a huge options winner. Better think again. Research is good but it does not deliver everything. Remember, market players also play it big and with multi-corporations setting in, do not expect to equate your own research with theirs. So, how can you spot a huge winner?

Paddle Tennis Rules

152 All of us have heard of tennis being played with rackets, but here’s a game of tennis that is played with a paddle. Paddle tennis is quite similar to lawn tennis barring the sizes of the court and the net, both of which are smaller in the former. The paddle tennis court is devoid of double lanes and requires more stamina on the part of the players. The paddle used in this game is about 9.5 inches x 18 inches in size. It is usually made from wood, though other hard materials are occasionally used. There are strings on it. A pressurized tennis ball is used for the game. The net is 22 feet long and 2.6 feet wide and is 31 inches above the surface of the ground. It is 18 inches outside the sidelines. Non-marking rubber soled shoes are worn while playing the game. 31 inches is the maximum height up to which a player can serve. He is allowed to serve only once losing which chance, he makes a foul stroke. While serving, the player is allowed to toss the ball in the air or even bounce it behind the base line on the court.

Are You a Winner Or a Mere Mortal?

134 Ohh myyyy. It never ceases to amaze me the excuses people make because deep down they really don’t want to be successful. Of course, one of the most common excuses I hear is that I didn’t have time. I didn’t have time to send out letters last month. I didn’t have time to put out signs. I didn’t have time to drive for dollars. Guess what people? Get your act together and get your priorities in order. When you tell someone that you don’t have time, all you’re really saying is “it’s not really that important to me, I’d rather watch TV, I’d rather surf the Internet, I just don’t care about success that much”. Let me tell you about some good information I got from a book by famous marketer Bruce Barton. In one of Bruce’s books he emphasized the importance of being more productive with your time. He stated that some of the world’s most successful men achieved their true life’s work IN THEIR SPARE TIME. Here are some examples from the book: “A tired-out rail-splitter crouched over his tattered books by candlelight or by fire-glow, at the day’s end; preparing for his future, instead of snoring …

How to Eliminate Tennis Pain

103 The elbow is a very stable joint as the bony surfaces of the joint interlock tightly and it is also surrounded by strong ligaments. It is this inherent strength that causes some problems like tennis pain as the tendons in the region are often subject to excessive stresses when you move the elbow joint as a part of some physical activity. A number of conditions can arise within the elbow that causes damages to the bones, tendons and nerves in the region. Tennis pain can arise while playing backhand strokes in a game of tennis. There are other reasons why a pain in the elbow can occur even in people who are not sports persons.

The fibrous tissue around the joint is also affected and there is a loss of function in the elbow joint. In acute cases of tennis pain where the …

Potential players for summer 2010 football transfers

114 Many footballers have been named in the list of top highest transfer fees ever paid. European football in general and English football in particular experienced a “transfer bubble”. Real Madrid purchased Kaká from Milan for a fee of £56 million in June 2009, which was followed by their £80 million purchase of Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United. Summer 2010 is also the period for buying and selling talented players. However, unlike 2009, this year’s transfer window is taking place very quietly.

Table Tennis Training – Don’t Let Expectations Ruin Your Game

111 After a period of successful tournaments and high-level play, you sometimes expect to be able to play at that level any time. This expectation can eventually become your downfall. With this added expectation comes the pressure of performing at the level you’re accustomed to. The added personal pressure leads to poor decision-making, a lack of relaxation, and ultimately to your playing well below your newly attained level. Once you start playing poorly, you will get frustrated that you are not playing your usual game. This leads to more bad losses and results and the downward spiral continues. The only way to get out of the cycle is to take a step back and analyze how and why you are playing so poorly. Is it your training method? If you have experienced a steady gain in your level over time and your results up to this point have been good, then it probably isn’t how you’re training. Most of the time the cause for a sudden period of poor results can be summarized in one word: expectations. Before your winning streak began you were training and working hard to improve your weaknesses. You went to a tournament hoping that your …

The History Of Handbags

122 The very first handbags were literally crude pouches fashioned from leaves and animal hide. However, the first documented use of handbags is from the 14th century—Egyptian hieroglyphics which depict men carrying little sacks around the waist. Called “pockets”, these handbags were hung by thongs at the back of the girdle, and were used mainly by men to carry flint or money. By the 1400’s both men and women were using handbags, which gradually became a status symbol. People would adorn their handbags with jewelry or embroidery to reflect their wealth, and use expensive materials such as silk. Needless to say these fragile handbags were not very practical—although the mentality was that if you could afford those handbags, you could afford a servant to carry your things for you. Portraits of the most affluent and influential people of the time often depict what you could consider the first “designer handbags”, prominently fastened to the dress with tasseled strings. Then it became fashionable for women to wear their handbags under their skirts, and handbags literally disappeared for several decades with little development in design. Embroidery and jeweled accents were abandoned for practical, everyday materials like leather. Men …

The Best Registry Cleaner For Vista

94 Vista was only released in 2007 and was an instant hit, with millions of people upgrading their computers in the first week of launch. This was great, but problems soon started to surface when it was discovered that this latest version of Windows still relied on the ‘registry’ to function. This has long been seen as the Achilles Heel of Windows, and luckily there are tools you can use to fix it. But which ones are the best? The registry is the central database for Windows and has been a part of the system since Windows ’98. It’s the central core of the system, which acts like your computer’s ‘memory’, storing everything from your Internet favorites to your latest emails. This database is being used by Windows every time it’s on, and can actually add and update 100’s of registry files every time you use your PC. This is okay, but there’s a problem. You see, even though Vista is one of the most revolutionary pieces of software ever released, it still corrupts many of the registry files that it relies on. This makes your computer slow down and even crash… but that’s where registry cleaners come in. These …
