Another name given to them are barbed spiders, thorn spiders or prickly spiders. The Bull Spider aka Spiny Backed Orb Weaver look similar to the Spined Micrathena Spider (Micrathena gracilis)
The thorny spikes and bumps on the Spined Micrathena Spider makes it look simialr to the Spiny Backed Orb Weaver although the Spined Micrathena Spider is a bigger, longer and narrower.

Spiny Backed Orb Weaver or  orb weavers create a web that is circular in shape. This web has few or no spirals at the center of its web. Each night, a new web is spun to catch small insect prey. The spider stands up-side-down on the web.

Late in the year, the female orb weavers will lay eggs that will grow throughout winter, hatching spiderlings in the spring. The oval-shaped egg sac is near the web, usually hidden underneath leaves. It may be white, green or yellowish, but it is woven of the spider’s silk.

Distiller Beer

undistilled beer

undistilled beer

Distillers beer is beer before distillation. Distillation is the action of purifying a liquid by a process of heating and cooling. Distillation is a process of separating the component substances from a liquid mixture by selective evaporation and condensation. Distillation of fermented products produces distilled beverages with a high alcohol content, or separates out other fermentation products of commercial value.

Distiller Beer is beer with the grain particles still in it. It is the beer with the volatile material in it before it is separated to get the clean drinkable beer. In the fermentation room fermentation takes place where water, grain and yeast come together in the yeast tubs to form mash. Water, grain and yeast come together in the fermentation area. Yeast is pumped into the Fermenter (Fermentor). Yeast feeds on the sugars and the grain. Yeast converts sugars and grains into alcohol in the form of ethanol. After a week of fermentation you get distillers beer. Distiller Beer is normally 11.5 % alcohol.

Ital Rastafarian Dish

ital is vital

ital is vital

Ital comes from the word vitality (vital) in Iyaric (language of the Race tafarians) words often begin with I (I = I) to emphasize the unity of man and nature. An Ital diet is fresh organically made food without added color and flavor substances that is The Order of the Nyah Binghi life to the highest form of Ital diet rules. Their food is barely processed and provisions are cooked and then eaten, if necessary, without the addition of spices. An Ital Rastafarian Dish does not include:

1) Pork, Chicken, Beef, Eggs, Sausages, Ham
2) Animal products and animal by-products
3) Sodium salt
4) Alcohol
5) Sprayed products / Genetically engineered food
6) Mayonnaise
7) Mustard
8) Ketchup

Most Ital food is made with organic fruits and vegetables and provisions. Ital or I-tal is food often celebrated by those in the Rastafari movement. The word derives from the English word “vital”, with the initial syllable replaced by i. This is done to many words in the Rastafari vocabulary to signify the unity of the speaker with all of nature. Due to this emphasis on individual personal meditation in Rastafari, the expression of Ital eating varies widely from Rasta to Rasta, and there are few universal “rules” of Ital living.

Though there are different interpretations of ital regarding specific foods, the general principle is that food should be natural, or pure, and from the earth; Rastafari therefore often avoid food which is chemically modified or contains artificial additives (e.g., colour, flavourings, and preservatives). Some also avoid added salt in foods, especially salt with the artificial addition of iodine, while pure sea or kosher salt is eaten by some. In strict interpretations, foods that have been produced using chemicals such as pesticides and fertilizer are not considered ital. Along with growing dreadlocks and the sacramental smoking of ganja, observing a vegetarian diet is one of the practices early Rastafari adopted from Indian Hindu indentured servants living in Jamaica. Rastafari’s unofficial founder Leonard Howell, affectionately called “Gong” and “Gyangunguru Maragh,” though not of Indian descent, was fascinated with Hindu practices and was instrumental in promoting a plant-based diet in the Rastafari community of Pinnacle.

Most expressions of the I-tal diet include adherence to a strict vegetarian diet. This is based in part on the belief that since meat is dead, eating it would therefore work against Livity elevation. It is also practiced because as strict adherents to natural living, Rastafari often believe the human being is a natural vegetarian based on human physiology and anatomy. Some adherents to Ital diets are strict vegans, as they do not consider dairy to be natural for human consumption either.

The most strict interpretations also avoid the consumption of rock salt (sea salt can be substituted), and food that has been preserved by canning or drying, and even prohibit the use of metal cooking utensils. In this case, only clay and wood cooking pots, crockery, and cutlery are used for example a yabba pot or yaba pot and calabash bowl. Few adherents of ital follow the strictest interpretation; some Rastafari do not adhere to them at all.

Rastafari do not approve of excessive alcohol consumption. However they can drink alcohol in moderation as long as it does not reach a level that clouds the mind or reduces their livity. Most Rastafari disapprove of cigarettes due to the serious health concerns associated with their use, and many Rastafari avoid coffee and other caffeinated beverages, though this is less common. In fact some Rastafari grow their own coffee, sugar, and chocolate.

Therefore, the strictest Rastafarians follow what most people would recognize as a vegan, macrobiotic diet. This means they refrain from ingesting animal products, such as meat, dairy and eggs, and only eat food that is fresh, local and in season.

The Ital diet focuses on consuming fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans and legumes, with the inspiration for Ital dishes being based in Indian and African cooking. Staple Ital foods are coconuts, bananas, callaloo (similar to spinach), pimento and coconut oil, but these foods may not be in season or local to the area where the Rastafarian lives, so staple foods can differ greatly in certain cases.

Some less strict Rastafarians do choose to eat fish. However, the size of the fish must be less than 12 inches. This is because a fish of a larger size is symbolic of the Babylonians who fed off of others.

Rastafarians who do not follow a very strict Ital diet may also choose to consume other meats, such as chicken, but shellfish and pork are unlikely to be eaten by anyone following an Ital diet. This is because these animals are scavengers and their meat is considered to be unclean and harmful to the human body.

Processed, chemically-altered and artificial foods, including dried foods, salt and oil, are generally not consumed by those following an Ital diet because they are also believed to be destructive to the body.

It is for this same reasoning that drinks such as sodas, tea and coffee are rarely, if ever, consumed by strict Rastafarians because of their caffeine content. Herbal tea is the exception due to its low caffeine content and natural herbal properties.

When it comes to ensuring food is as natural as possible, some Rastafarians go as far as refraining from using metal food utensils and containers, such as cans, which can chemically alter food due to the use of BPA liners. Instead, Rastafarians opt to use cooking pots and utensils made out of clay or wood. See yabba pot for more information.

Ital is a vegetarian meal in the West Indies (Caribbean). In the West Indies many people use the slang “Ital is vital” as Ital is equal to vitality “Itality equal vitality”.

History of FIFA World Cup Football Soccer

The FIFA World Cup, often simply called the World Cup, is an international association football competition contested by the senior men’s national teams of the members of Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), the sport’s global governing body. The championship has been awarded every four years since the inaugural tournament in 1930, except in 1942 and 1946 when it was not held because of the Second World War. The current champion is Germany, which won its fourth title at the 2014 tournament in Brazil.

The current format of the competition involves a qualification phase, which currently takes place over the preceding three years, to determine which teams qualify for the tournament phase, which is often called the World Cup Finals. 32 teams, including the automatically qualifying host nation(s), compete in the tournament phase for the title at venues within the host nation(s) over a period of about a month.

The 20 World Cup tournaments have been won by eight different national teams. Brazil have won five times, and they are the only team to have played in every tournament. The other World Cup winners are Italy and Germany, with four titles each; Argentina and inaugural winners Uruguay, with two titles each; and England, France and Spain, with one title each.

The World Cup is the most widely viewed and followed sporting event in the world, exceeding even the Olympic Games; the cumulative audience of all matches of the 2006 FIFA World Cup was estimated to be 26.29 billion with an estimated 715.1 million people watching the final match, a ninth of the entire population of the planet.

The 2014 World Cup took place in Brazil. The next two World Cups will be hosted by Russia in 2018 and Qatar in 2022. Both choices have been criticised in the media, Russia in light of the 2014 Crimean crisis and Qatar for allegations of vote-buying and poor working conditions for foreign workers.

The Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA in English for International Federation of Association Football) is the international governing body of association football, futsal and beach soccer. FIFA is responsible for the organization of football’s major international tournaments, notably the World Cup which commenced in 1930.

FIFA was founded in 1904 to oversee international competition among the national associations of Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland. Headquartered in Zürich, membership now comprises 209 national associations. Member countries must each also be members of one of the six regional confederations into which the world is divided: Africa, Asia, Europe, North & Central America and the Caribbean, Oceania and South America.

Although FIFA does not control the rules of soccer, it is responsible for both the organisation of a number of tournaments and their promotion, which generate revenue from sponsorship. In 2013, FIFA had revenues of over 1.3 billion U.S. dollars, for a net profit of 72 million, and had cash reserves over 1.4 billion U.S. dollars.

Football Soccer UEFA Champions League

The UEFA Champions League have some of the best players in the world and is the most popular football competition outside of the FIFA World Cup. The European Cup started in 1955. The UEFA Champions League, known simply as the Champions League, is an annual continental club football competition organised by the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA).

Like the FIFA World Cup, the UEFA Champions League is sponsored by a group of multinational corporations, in contrast to the single main sponsor typically found in national top-flight leagues. When the Champions League was created in 1992, it was decided that a maximum of eight companies should be allowed to sponsor the event, with each corporation being allocated four advertising boards around the perimeter of the pitch, as well as logo placement at pre- and post-match interviews and a certain number of tickets to each match. This, combined with a deal to ensure tournament sponsors were given priority on television advertisements during matches, ensured that each of the tournament’s main sponsors was given maximum exposure.

UEFA awards €2.1 million to each team in the play-off round. For reaching the group stage, UEFA awards a base fee of €8.6 million. A win in the group is awarded €1 million and a draw is worth €500,000. In addition, UEFA pays teams reaching the first knockout round €3.5 million, each quarter-finalist €3.9 million, €4.9 million for each semi-finalist, €6.5 million for the runners-up and €10.5 million for the winners. Teams receive different monetary prizes based on performance and their progression for example.

  • Playoffs: €2,100,000
  • Base fee for group stage: €8,600,000
  • Group match victory: €1,000,000
  • Group match draw: €500,000
  • Round of 16: €3,500,000
  • Quarter-finals: €3,900,000
  • Semi-finals: €4,900,000
  • Losing finalist: €6,500,000
  • Winning the Final: €10,500,000

A large part of the distributed revenue from the UEFA Champions League is linked to the “market pool”, the distribution of which is determined by the value of the television market in each country. For the 2012–13 season, Juventus, who were eliminated in the quarter-finals, earned nearly €65.3 million in total, of which €20.5 million was prize money, compared with the €55.0 million earned by Bayern Munich, who won the tournament and were awarded €35.9 million in prize money.
