Online sportfogadás magyaroknak - fogadási oldalak
Tudtátok, hogy az összes magyar sportfogadás fele már online történik? Még a koronavírus sem tudta kedvét szegni a játékosoknak, akik újabb és újabb, addig ismeretlen fogadási piacokon teszik próbára a szerencséjüket! De milyen lehetőségei is vannak azoknak, akik magyar nyelvű, gyors és egyszerű fogadási lehetőségeket keresnek az interneten? Szerencsére az elmúlt néhány évben a jól bejáratott és a viszonylag új külföldi fogadóoldalak is újra felfedezték a magyar piacot és annak igen lelkes közönségét. Ehhez persze az kellett, hogy több bírósági döntés is kimondja, hogy a hazai felügyelőszervek addigi korlátozó tevékenysége - a külföldről hosztolt online játékterek blokkolása és a reklámjaik tiltása – uniós jogot sért. A jelenlegi állapot szerint ezért Magyarország az online szerencsejátékot tekintve egy olyan szürkezóna, ahol a külföldi oldalakat és azok látogatóit retorzió már nem éri, ugyanakkor a játékosok vitás ügyek esetén nem fordulhatnak a megfelelő hazai fogyasztóvédelmi szervekhez. Na de milyen lehetőségek várnak arra, aki nem elégszik meg a Magyarországon egyetlen teljesen legális sportfogadási szolgáltató, a TippmixPro kínálatával és oddsaival? Szerencsére ma már nemcsak olyan külföldi oldalak nyíltak meg a magyar IP-címek felől érkező látogatók előtt, ahol magyar piacokra is lehet fogadni, hanem egyes szájtokon gondos magyarítás - ilyen a Bet365 vagy az Unibet - magyar sportfogadás is várja a felhasználókat, valamint elfogadják az idehaza is ismert és bevett alternatív fizetési módokat. Egy külföldi fogadóoldalon a regisztráció és a befizetés is gyors és egyszerű. Csak olyan oldalon regisztrálj, amit közvetlenül, például alternatív link vagy VPN használata nélkül is elérhetsz. Ez biztos jele vannak, hogy a szolgáltató számít a magyar játékosokra, és mindent megtesz azok megelégedettsége érdekében. Ha netán nem beszélsz idegen nyelveket, vagy nem ismered még a szerencsejátékkal kapcsolatos kifejezéseket, válassz egy olyan szépen magyarított oldalt, ahol nemcsak a kezdőoldal, hanem a gyakran ismételt kérdések, a felhasználási feltételek, a fizetési módok és a fogadási típusok is részletes magyar nyelvű leírást kaptak. Egy ilyen igényes oldal például a 22Bet magyar változata. Fontos megjegyezni, hogy egy külföldi sportfogadási oldalon is előbb-utóbb, legkésőbb a nyereményed kivételekor szükséged lesz a személyazonosságod és a lakcímed igazolására. Ez általában csak annyit jelent, hogy befotózod egy fényképes igazolványod és a lakcímkártyád, amit beküldesz a megadott ügyfélszolgálati linken vagy címre, hogy aztán egy munkatársuk leellenőrizhesse. Ezen egyszer kell átesni. És ha már ügyfélszolgálat, legyen fontos szempont az oldal kiválasztásánál az is, hogy van-e magyar nyelvű élő chates segítségnyújtás. Ezt például a Bwin is tudja. Hogy mennyire éri meg a külföldi bukmékereknek a magyar sporteseményekkel foglalkozni, sajnos nem nagyon. Inkább azt mondanánk, hogy lehet ilyen helyen találkozni egy-egy megtehető, pl. NB. I-es foci, női kézilabda vagy magyar vonatkozású nemzetközi meccsel, de a külföldi oldalakat ne a hazai sportfogadás miatt válasszuk. De általánosságban - a magyar piacokat leszámítva - a kínálat, a szorzók, a marginok és a fogadási lehetőségek terén is jobbak ezek az oldalak, hiszen nincsenek kvázi monopolhelyzetben. Amiben a külföldi oldalak még előrébb vannak, azok a virtuális sportok és az e-sportok, na meg a politikai vagy más, nagy nemzetközi érdeklődést kiváltó, jeles események kimenetelének fogadhatósága. Ha a sok sportfogadás után netán kedved támad játszani, számos bukméker oldalon pár kattintással átléphetsz a platform – szinten egyre többször magyarított - online kaszinójába. További jó hír, hogy a külföldi online játékterek kaszinóoldalainak a különféle bónuszait magyar játékosok is igénybe vehetik, általában ugyanazokkal a megjátszási feltételekkel.

Carbon Road Bike Frames
Carbon Road Bike Frames Not all carbon road bike frames are made in Asia. The frame is the heart and soul of the bicycle. All components are secured together into a single cohesive whole. Thus, buyers when selecting the correct frame, the basic material matters a lot. A good carbon road bike frame is a combination of carbon fibers of different types which are used in different places in a frame for extremely specific purposes. Carbon road bike frames are used by cyclists and in the racing world. When out to buy a new bike, the market will offer multiple bike frame material and choice becomes difficult. The alternative is between aluminum, carbon fiber, titanium, and steel. Carbon road bike frames are manufactured through the weaving of carbon fiber strands and allowing it to set within a hard epoxy resin. These are light, sturdy, and reasonably stiff. The material can be crafted into aerodynamic shapes. Features of the carbon frames. Comfort-ride quality has been accepted as beneficial for carbon frames. The carbon can be devised to be stiff in some directions and yielding in others. This makes the carbon frame convenient over bumps and rough roads but stiff sufficiently for efficient pedalling and vertically compliant. Carbon by its very nature lessens vibration when riding. The tires and touch points also influence the comfort level. Weight- a lighter bike can better the riding experience. It is possible to construct exceptionally light and capable bikes out of carbon. The strength-to-weight ratio in carbon is better. All the carbon is not equal. There are grades in carbon. The lower-grade carbon consists of more fillers leading to cost-cutting but enhancing the weight. That is why carbon is the best choice. The higher-grade carbon through expert engineering brings out carbon bikes that are strong but intensely light. Frame only contributes to a part of the bike's total weight. The remaining weight is made up of components. Wheels specifically will make a big difference in bike weight and its heaviness when riding. Receptivity and stiffness-the bike must be laterally stiff and vertically compliant. When pedals are pushed hard, or the corner is to be maneuvered a good frame requires stiffness to oppose the torsional forces so that torsional forces help in handling the bike. Technically carbon as a material is best suited for the purpose. Durability- most riders are fearful of damaging an expensive carbon frame. Carbon fiber strength to weight ratio is higher compared to steel. Carbon has limitless fatigue life but is likely to get damaged by the direct impact such as a big crash. Carbon can be repaired with ease and the old becomes as good as new. Expenditure-carbon is expensive as it is produced through the more labor-intensive method. Every frame needs a committed mold which adds to the cost. Carbon fiber layout is possible by hand. Components are easy to upgrade than frames. Visual examination-carbon fiber unlocked new potential in cycle design. This has made the bike curves smooth and swooping. The bike is beautiful and appealing. Carbon delivers the performance of many high-end carbon fiber frames.
Things Only San Francisco Giants Fans Understand!
Well, now that the Super Bowl is over, let's get excited for baseball season! As I've told many people, baseball is my favorite sport. It is indeed the love of my life and I can outright say that although I'm sad football season is over, I am so excited that baseball season will be starting very soon. And even though we haven't played a single game, my friends and I are already talking about who we think is going to win the 2016 World Series. My answer? The San Francisco Giants. So to honor all the Giants fans out there, (this one's for you @ChristopherKenn), here is a card dedicated to fans that speak Giants as their second language. 1. Even Year Enough said right? Just in case you don't know what this means for Giants fans, the Giants are good on even years. I mean really good (well I guess since 2010). Anyways, they are so good that the Giants have won the World Series in 2010, 2012, and 2014. Now you know why Giants fans are excited that it's an even year - 2016. 2. Wearing Orange and Black in October! Why are Giants fans rocking orange and black in October? Well I can say one thing for sure. It has nothing to do with Halloween or autumn. They are just showing their favorite team their full support! 3. Work? No Victory Parade! I mean fans could get tired of going to a victory parade if they win a World Series ring every two years...but not the Giants fans. Your boss would definitely understand if you took a day off to attend the victory parade. Employers should be prepared this year since it's an even year. 4. Hunter Pence's Stolen Scooter Giants fans know Hunter Pence loves his scooter. He loves it so much that he doesn't go to work by taking his car like all the other players. Instead, he pulls out his scooter and rides it to work. So when his scooter was stolen and he asked for help on Twitter, every Giants fan went on searching for Pence's scooter. And eventually...a fan found it! It was a collective effort by the entire Giants fan base. 5. Beat L.A. There is nothing you hate more than the Dodgers if you are a Giants fan. So, you don't care if the Dodgers are playing a different team. A Dodgers' loss is as good as a Giants' win. And if the Giants are playing the Dodgers? They better win, because those games against the Dodgers are the most important games of the season. BEAT LA! Any Giants fans out there? You guys think the Giants will win this year's World Series?

I'm Ashamed of My Hometown
San Diego, get your shit together. Each year at the Padres stadium, Petco Park, the LGBT society in SD holds an event called "Out at the Park" that is meant to bring the community together for an evening of baseball. This year, Petco Park really, really screwed up. The San Diego Men's Gay Chorus was meant to sing the national anthem before the game to represent the LGBT community for this event. Their voices were never heard. The stadium let them take the field, and then as they were about to sing, a recorded female voice instead sang the anthem (which, if you've been to a Padres game, isn't something that happens - we always have live singing) The men had to walk off the field hearing people shouting profane, homophobic things at them. The Padres said it was a mistake, a technical error, a third party contractor, and that they were sorry. But that doesn't explain the other examples of mistreatment. Days prior to the game, the Padres organization told the performers that the chorus would have to pay for their tickets in order to sing. This is not something that happens, ever. If you perform the national anthem, you get to enter the park for free, DUH. Why did the Padres suddenly want this now? That would have cost the small organization thousands of dollars, and after dispute they were finally allowed in as performers. You can listen to their great voices here when they performed in 2015. It's a pity their voices weren't heard this year. Get it together Padres, you're a disappointment in baseball but don't be a disappointment to your entire community.
