eSports Guide for New Players

eSports Gaming Information

If you are unsure of what eSports gaming even is, then let’s get you up to speed. Essentially, eSports is a competition in which players battle it out to the league or table when playing online games. These organised competitions are taking the gaming world by storm at the moment and it was even estimated that in 2013 a staggering 71.5 million people tuned in to watch the game. That figure has only risen since then and it is safe to say that eSports are here to stay.

Worldwide last year, the eSports gaming industry generate a massive $325 million, and by the end of this year this is set to rise to $493 million, while its audience is roughly 225 million!

eSports Games Available

There are lots of eSports games out there to enjoy, but there are a few that have been particularly popular amongst players in recent years due to their high quality graphics and fantastic game play! Some of the big names that you are likely to come across when searching for eSports games to play are Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm which is a strategy game from Blizzard, Super Smash Bros Melee from Warner from Nintendo, Injustice: Gods Among Us from Warner Brothers, Killer Instinct from Microsoft, and finally from Activision comes we would say the most popular all of these games and that is Call of Duty: Ghosts.

Unless you have seen one of these games in action, then it can be quite difficult to describe what is so impressive about them. When playing an eSports game the main aim of the game is to usually kill or defeat the other player and these games are extremely fast which can make them quite difficult to keep up with.

There are also many International tournaments available to play too. Some of the tournaments that you may have heard of are from the game publisher Vale, who run The International Tournament which only features one of its own games Dota 2. To get this tournament venture started, the company used crowdfunding to create a huge prize pool of a whopping $10 million! Other companies also run their own tournaments including Blizzard and their tournaments include eSports games such as Starcraft. Finally, one of the biggest tournaments that you will see within the eSports industry is the League of Legends Championship Series which is run by Riot Games. This tournament is so exciting that it even sold out the famous Staples Centre in just 1 hour!

Healthy Lunch Ideas and Tips

Have you been putting off trying to eat healthily because it’s too expensive, too difficult, or you just can’t seem to make time to prepare a healthy meal? You are not alone. Millions of consumers just like you maintain an unhealthy diet for these reasons, but it’s time to stop gambling with your health.

Research continually shows that your diet can affect how you feel, how you think, how you view yourself, and can directly affect your health:

• Top nutritionists at Harvard have concluded that trans fat could be responsible for as many as 30,000 premature coronary deaths per year!

• By eating at least 5 servings of vegetables and fruits a day, you can reduce your risk of stroke and heart disease by 30%, lose weight, and enhance your immune system so you don’t get sick as often!

• More than one-third of U.S. adults-more than 72 million people-and 16% of U.S. children are obese

With so many negative effects caused by an unhealthy diet, you can’t afford to risk your health and happiness by not eating healthily.

Unhealthy food products are promoted by food groups and restaurant chains because they can be advertised to the consumer as fast, easy, and cost-effective meals. Most consumers choose these products because they think that healthy eating can not be fast, easy, or cost-effective. This assumption, however, is not necessarily true. Healthy eating can be fast, easy, and affordable, and can contribute to a healthy body, healthy mind, and a happier you!

Human’s Ascending to the Fifth Dimension

Dear Readers,

Marifetullah means being aware of Allah (swt). I stated before that the science of Marifetullah has 3 complementary methods as “mind”, “transfer” and “heart”. The “mind” method is applied by the person himself, “transfer” method is by scholars of Islam and “heart” method is by Tasawwuf Scientist. A person begins to know Allah (swt) only after acquiring the knowledge of the three methods. He has a true “Marifetullah”, a perfect “belief” and a real “maturity”.

The last phase of this process is Tasawwuf education. This is a heart education under the observation of a Murshid-I Kamil (Perfect Guide). The student bay’ahs the Murshid-I Kamil on behalf of Rasulullah (s.a.w). In fact, the bay’ah (the oath of allegiance) is to Allah (Swt).

It is ordered in the verse from the Qur’an that:

“Verily those who plight their fealty to thee plight their fealty in truth to Allah; the Hand of Allah is over their hands.” (Fath, 10)

# Tasawwuf is experiencing Islam with its visible and invisible aspects

Tasawwuf is a science of state. The principal of Tasawwuf is living in accordance with the Islamic rules by heart and behavior with its visible and invisible aspects as Ahmed Yasawi, Mawlana Jalal ad-Din Rumi and Mahmut Hudai hazrats lived with takwa and sincerity, but without formalism… Just as in the era of Rasulullah (s.a.w)…

The words, which people repeat in order to get closer to Allah, are called “wird”. “Dhikr” is remembering Allah (swt) by any means.

Tasawwuf institutions, which have helped many people to become mature by reaching true belief up to now, also practice regular daily wird and dhikr programs besides conversations, self-denial and struggle methods to strengthen the love of Allah (swt) in the hearts.

# Daily Wird and Dhikr

Before beginning the daily wird, 3 times Ikhlas and 1 time Fatiha surah are recited for the souls of Rasulullah (s.a.w) and his companions and Silsile-I Aliyye who were the teachers of the spiritual education organizations that date back to times of Rasulullah (s.a.w). The next step is dhikr.

One must be ritually clean to perform daily wird and dhikr. It is begun with Basmala-I Sharif (Bismillahirrahmanirrahim). After giving glory to Allah (swt) and salawat for Rasulullah, tawba and istigfar is made by repenting for the sins and reciting Astagfirullah. And then Kalima-I Tawhid (Lailahe illallah) and the beautiful names of Allah are recited in a certain number.

I witnessed that the regular daily wird and dhikr programs enabled positive effects for many people. These activities make people close to Allah (swt) continuously. A person must avoid harams (the things which are prohibited in Islam), perform his prays regularly and do everything for the sake of Allah (swt) in order to get the advantages of such a daily wird and dhikr program.

# One must keep away from bad people and publishing

One must also be away from the people with world addiction whose hearts are full of darkness.

Don’t forget that there is a path between hearts.

Being together with people whose hearts are full of darkness increase the addiction to world, darken the heart, and sharpen the tendency to unlawful actions. A person then spends the most valuable times of his life with invaluable actions without being aware of Allah (swt).

Try to be together with good people all the time. The good person is the one who reminds us Allah (swt) and the Sirat-I mustaqim (the straight path). We must pray Allah for being together with people who are better than we are. If we are always with good people, we will realize that a love for Allah, His Prophets, good people, all believers, and good habits grows in our heart that advances our heart unconsciously.

The good and bad publishing is just like friends.

Good friends cause benefits whereas bad friends cause harm.

When we are with good people, we learn something from them because of their good behaviors even there is no communication.

Therefore, Rasulullah (s.a.w) ordered:

“A man is upon the religion of his friend, so let one of you look at whom he befriends.” [Tirmidhi]

“Having a conversation with a good person atones the sins of many conversations with bad people.” [Deylemi]

# Marifetullah is spiritual knowledge.

Dear Readers,

We must refrain from the actions Allah forbids like committing adultery, objecting to parents, perjuring, lending and borrowing money with interest, drinking alcohol, gambling, accepting bribe, arrogance, gossip, and meanness. On the other hand, we must obey His rules as praying, fasting, eating and drinking lawful things, being patient, swear to give up just after committing a sin. If we perform the dhikr and wird programs, the desires of our nafs and all the bad feelings as love for real world, arrogance, vindictiveness, envy, covetousness and calumniation disappear in accordance with our sincerity.

“Muhabbetullah” begins filling our hearts instead of them. Thus our hearts begin knowing Allah (swt) and “marifetullah” begins to appear in our hearts. Marifetullah is a spiritual knowledge. It is the knowledge by instinct like a baby knows his mother who is always with him without any conscious knowledge based on any scientific data about his mother.

# The heart’s reaching confidence

After this stage, the heart is opened to meaning world. The person begins understanding some realities through his heart, which he hadn’t realized before. Meaning blindness disappears. The person begins realizing and understanding some realities clearer, which he knew by heart before but evaluated them with doubt and hesitation. Thus the doubts in his belief disappear. A relief, satisfaction, and reliance in Allah, which are impossible to define with words, occur in his heart.

The human at this point, now, is a person that he has passed through the education of Allah (swt) and ascended to the fifth dimension. He is aware of the spiritual realities. And he is a “mature” human, now. He has the signs of all the positive characteristics of a mature person. I gave more detailed information on the subject in my next article.

Be entrusted to Allah.

Domino – The Horse Racing Game

Of all the kinds of games available online, horse racing ones are probably the most paradoxical. These games have that old familiar ring to it which makes you feel like you’ve always known and always played the game even if you have never actually played such a game. But of all the various games in this genre, one name stands out as better than the rest – Domino the Speed Defining colt.

It is, in a way, sad that most people who play this game are completely unaware of the history of the horse. Domino was no ordinary everyday horse used for pleasure riding; he was an American thoroughbred from the nineteenth century who was renowned in his time and later for his extraordinary speed. This speed had been inherited from his great-grandfather, Eclipse, another horse famed for his powerful legs. Since every great hero needs a hamartia, Domino had one too – he did not have much stamina. Over short distances, he was the terror of the racetrack, but if he was forced to gallop for miles on end he would tire out and give up pretty soon (quite a big disadvantage in the nineteenth century because most race tracks were at least two or more miles long). But this speedy steed has lived on past his day and become engrained in every horse race’s heart as the benchmark of speed.

While the bloodline of Domino carries on in the racetrack, one might think that his time has come to an end and he will eventually be forgotten and, if it were not for the internet that would be true! The old chestnut beast is still roaming the world in the form of an online game. Domino is one of the most popular names for various online horse racing games which have become more and more popular these days. Every few horse racing games online has a horse named Domino, and more often than not, they have no idea where this name came from. But, now having known this, such games should become that much more interesting. Most races will give you that one arch rival to give you a run for your money, just like Domino had Dobbin (his own personal arch rival). Since Domino already has a huge reputation in the real world, it is reasonable to thing that he can have the same in the virtual world, provided his jockey is experienced enough.

One thing many people seem to believe is that a horse race can only ever be about gambling and so come to these games with the intention of setting up some stakes. But this is not the reason why the virtual world has resurrected Domino. It’s not for the money, it is for the fun of guiding one of the greatest thoroughbreds of all time through a long course and actually making it out alive! There are plenty of elements to enjoy in such games as opposed to a car racing game. Give it a shot, you might actually like it.

How To Answer "Yes," To "Will I Win The Lottery?" And Turn "I Want To Win The Lottery" Into "I Won!"

Are you constantly thinking and saying, “I want to win the lottery?” Do you ask yourself, “Will I win the lottery?” If you think about winning the lottery all the time, you need to know this secret to winning the secret to winning the lottery.

If you think winning the big bucks is just about picking the right lottery numbers, you’re wrong. Yes, you do need to pick the right numbers, and it’s best to have a system to win the lottery. Doing things like reading a lottery book can be useful too. But none of this will work for you if you don’t do this one essential thing:

The universe rewards those who are prepared. Did you know that?

When you act as if you expect something, it’s going to come to you. Did you know that?

If you take on the identity of who you want to be, you’ll live into that identity. Did you know that?

Well, now you know all of these keys to understanding the secret to winning the lottery. Now, here’s the secret.

If you want to pick the winning Megamillions numbers or winning Powerball numbers, you need to be prepared. You need to know exactly what you’re going to do after you win.

In your heart, you know you are going to win a lotto jackpot eventually. Right? Why else do you buy lottery tickets?

So doesn’t it make sense to have a plan for when you do win? When you do this, you put yourself in a mindset of expectation, and you take on the identity of someone who has won.

Here are four things you can do to start preparing for that win:

1. Prioritize your wants.

Make a list of all the things you want to purchase with your winnings. Now rate them on a scale of 1 to 10. Know what you’re going to buy first and what comes later.

2. Pick out an attorney to help you prepare to claim your winnings. You do not want to walk into the lottery winner arena without legal advice. Do a search for “lottery attorney” online and find one in your area.

3. Start looking for your dream home. If you want to build it, look for property and plans. Megamillions lottery winner, Cynthia Stafford started house hunting when she had no money at all. And she won $112 million. This part of the process makes your home real for you and revs up the winning energy.

4. Make a list of people to whom you plan to give money and decide on how much you’ll give. Take into account gift taxes when you do this. Be careful about who you tell, “I’ll give you money when I win.” You don’t want to give away all your winnings.

Combine this lottery win preparation method with a lottery winning system, and you will be able to answer “Yes,” to “Will I win the lottery?” You’ll be able to turn “I want to win the lottery,” to “I WON the lottery.”

How To Beat Blackjack

Blackjack would have to be one of the most famous and widely-played casino games of all time and can be a whole lot of fun, however no casino game is fun when you’re losing, right? Wouldn’t it be great if you could always beat blackjack?

Well, in this article I’m going to talk about some ways you can increase your odds of winning in blackjack and possibly make yourself a few dollars while doing it.

In blackjack, you already have the highest odds of winning of any casino game out there. Mathematically, your odds are exactly the same as the dealer, the only reason he has an edge over you is really only because you can’t see his second card. Compared to other casino games, you’re already doing pretty well.

To make certain you’ve got the best odds, you need to make sure you’re betting smart by following a few small rules. While these won’t actually make your odds better (there are ways of doing that however which are easy to find) these methods will ensure you’re doing as well as you can.

Firstly, ensure that you’re always standing on a 17 or above. Mathematically, you have a better chance of beating the dealer by standing on a 17 or higher, than you do of getting a card that will make your total lower than 21 but without going over. You may have a ‘feeling’, though unless you’re a proven practitioner of ESP or something, you have no way of knowing what card is going to come up next. Use your head and not your heart.

Next, you should always have a blackjack betting table (guide) next to you when you’re betting. This is simply a table of betting that tells you whether you should be standing, hitting, doubling, or splitting depending on what your total and the dealer’s total is. As this is something you physically need to carry around with you, you can’t really take it into a casino for fear of being ejected by a large neck-less security guard, however you should find it easy to use one in conjunction with online gambling. You can find these quite easily anywhere online and they’re usually free.

As far as betting is concerned, there are ways to increase your odds of winning in the short-term – for example using the Martingale betting method – however in the long run this is only setting you up for an immense loss which is generally unrecoverable.

How Martingale works is that every time you lose, you simply double your bet on the next hand. When you eventually win, your bet will have been large enough to cover all of your losses from the previous rounds, plus made you a small profit. The thing with Martingale is that because casinos enforce betting limits which dictate how much you can actually bet on a single spot, there are only so many times you can double your bet.

With most casinos, you’ll find that you’re only able to double your bet around 10 times, which if you’re speaking in terms of odds means you’re only covered for 10 consecutive losses. This will on average happen every 38 hands, or you have a 2.6% chance of this happening. These odds are extremely high for such a large loss and because of this I would never recommend using Martingale…trust me, I found this out the hard way myself.

Apart from that, there are ways out there which are guaranteed to increase your odds in blackjack, however I’ve just listed some of the quick and easy ways to do it. If you’re wanting the hardcore stuff, you’ll just have to go searching on the Internet!

Does the Andrucci Roulette System Work?

Roulette is without a doubt a game loved by many casino gamblers. Some are attached to it simply because of how thrilling and exciting it can be, especially during that heart-stopping spin when everyone has their fingers crossed, hoping their bets will win. Others meanwhile are out for the money. Roulette is a game that’s pretty easy to win, and cases as the latter can’t really be helped.

Now some of those who want to profit from roulette have developed systems aiming to beat the game. While many of these systems have strong mathematical bases, there are still those that straightforwardly play with chance. The Andrucci roulette system can be classified as one among such systems.

The Andrucci roulette system is said to be based on the chaos theory. Basically, this betting strategy works on the principle that in the long run, every single number in the roulette wheel will come up with the same frequency. For the short term however, the ball will land on one or a few numbers on the wheel more times than it would on all the others. Such are aptly labeled as “lucky” numbers, and the Andrucci system is created to figure out just what number it is and eventually exploit it.

To play using the Andrucci system, you first have to take up the role of a spectator and observe the trends on the wheel for thirty spins. Remember, or better yet, record all the results. Note which numbers frequently win during that period, as well as those that never came up at all. Once done, select your bet among these lucky and no-show numbers. Wager a single bet on that specific number for 30 to 35 rounds, pray and hope that the spin results arrive at it at least once.

Does this particular betting system work however? Some gamblers will attest to its effectiveness, but the truth is that it is mathematically impossible to win with the Andrucci. The lack of mathematical backing aside, another reason is that roulette is totally random. It’s impossible for certain numbers to come up more often than everything else present on the roulette wheel. Those that seemingly appeared lucky are no more than a product of coincidence, if the wheel you happen to be playing on is not a biased one. These coincidences in turn are very hard to spot and will take a lot of luck to simply run into, let alone to correctly bet on one.

In spite of this, the Andrucci roulette system can be useful when you are trying to detect biased roulette wheels. These wheels are a staple of casinos and are rigged to favor the casino more than regular wheels do. Significantly increasing the number of observations done before betting can give you better data, helping you pick out which numbers the wheel is biased to a lot easier.

To conclude, it is not advisable to use the Andrucci system if you’re aiming to win in roulette, unless you’re aiming to bet on biased wheels. By default, this strategy can be said as no more than blind betting but with a method.

The Dangerous Side of Diabetes Drugs

When it comes to diseases and medication, there are as many good and bad results as there are people and prescriptions. That said, because I work with people with diabetes I have been researching these meds and I don’t like what I’ve found.

Possible the most prestigious-albeit not without conflicts of interest-medical journals is The Journal of the American Medical Association. In a recent issue celebrating advances in medicine over the past 200 years, an article on diabetes was included. The author celebrates the discovery of insulin and at the same time laments the fact that “little progress has been made toward conquering the disease during the past 200 years, and we are arguably worse off now than we were in 1812.” The population with diabetes is 75% higher now than it was 20 years ago. For those who are on medication for diabetes, who coach people to health and reversing diabetes, or who are paying attention to what’s happening in the world of our brethren and sistern it’s easy to see that whatever we are currently doing is not getting people well.

In fact many diabetics and pre-diabetics become trapped on a track of ever increasing doses of meds that have side effects including increased risk of cardiovascular disease, weak and brittle bones, and weight gain.

The cardiovascular risk was proven in a prominent study, called Action to Control Cardiovascular Risk in Diabetes (ACCORD). It was designed to evaluate the effectiveness of various medication regimens in reducing heart attacks, strokes, and death from cardiovascular disease in patients with type 2 diabetes. One arm of the study tested the widely held assumption that more aggressive lowering of blood sugar would provide greater protection against heart disease. In fact this assumption proved to be dead wrong. The study was halted 18 months early. Dr. Julian Whitaker wrote in his newsletter, “Intensive blood sugar lowering treatment proved to be so harmful that the researchers halted this arm of the study 18 months early to prevent this aggressive drug use from killing even more people.”

You don’t see that on the warning label. Yet heart disease of all stripes is the most common secondary condition for diabetics.

Diabetes drugs either lower/suppress insulin or lower blood sugar. Some drugs both lower blood sugar and push the pancreas to produce more insulin. Think about how this might affect the pancreas. How long can you push someone to do their work faster and for longer before they quit or die? It’s becoming more common now for people with Type-2 diabetes present with Type-1. Why? The islet cells of the pancreas are taxed to the point of exhaustion.

And think about this. If you need insulin to get blood sugar into cells where it can be used for energy but you lower the amount in the body of a person with high sugar, how will the body cope with all that extra sugar? Diabetes by the way, according to metabolic expert Dr. Ron Rosedale, Diabetes is not a blood sugar disease. So, drugs that focus on the symptom of elevated blood sugar, rather than addressing the underlying cause, are doomed to fail in most cases. “Type 2 diabetes is a disease caused by insulin resistance and faulty leptin signaling (leptin is a hormone produced in your fat cells), both of which are regulated through your diet.” Says Rosedale.

I casually threw weight gain in up there in the side effects category. Did you know that? If a drug increases insulin-the storage hormone-there will be more fat storage. Some of these pills also cause water retention. This can affect blood pressure as well a weight.

Is there any good news for diabetics?

Of course, and it’s easier than remembering which meds to take when and monitoring side effects. Make changes in your lifestyle habits and ignore the conventional recommendations on this.

Eating small meals throughout the day may not work for those with insulin resistance or too little insulin. Any foods that spike blood sugar should be taken out of the diet at least until you get well. This includes white, wheat, rice, soy, and other flour products with the exception of coconut flour or nut flours. Take a break from sugar of all kinds for 7 days and see what happens to your fasting blood sugar number.

I guarantee it will improve in just 7 days or less. Watch the amount of food you eat at one time but don’t go hungry. Ensure you are eating plenty of healthy fats, clean protein, and as many non-starchy vegetables as you want. Include some fruit with a meal or some fat. Other than green apples don’t eat fruit on its own as a snack. We are aiming for blood sugar balance throughout the day so insulin can do its job and the system can return to stasis.

The final major league magic bullet is exercise. Just ten minutes of walking after a meal helps use up circulating blood sugar. The more you move the more you help your whole hormonal system return to normal.

Bring awareness to your choices throughout the day. Eat slowly, savor each flavor, color and texture. Notice when you are getting full. All of this takes support but won’t it be worth is when Big Pharma isn’t gambling with your health while lining their pockets?

Doctors from all over the world who include an open mind in their practice will tell you that diabetes is close to 100% reversible.

No one ever got sick from a lack of prescription medication and when it comes to disease, for the most part, they don’t get well either.

Choose life even when it’s harder than taking a pill. You’ll feel a whole lot better in the long run and you might even get a longer run.
