Extreme winter sports

Extreme sports are about exhilaration, skill and danger. They do not normally involve teams and there are very few rules. People who take part use their skills and experience to control the risks. That control is what makes them sports and not just dangerous behaviour.

Here are just some of the extreme sports which are popular in Britain:

Kitesurfing: a growing band of enthusiasts have been discovering the thrilling combination of kite, board and waves. These kites can be up to 17 metres long. Catch a gust and you’re motoring – up, down and across the surf. British Ladies kitesurfing champion Jo Wilson says: „It’s always an adrenalin rush. It’s unpredictable. You could jump 5ft or 35ft. You never know if you’re going to go up in the air, and your heart is just going boom, boom, boom all the time.“

Coasteering: this is exploring the coastline without worrying about a coastal path or finding a rocky cliffy cove blocking your route. You climb, dive, swim and clamber from A to B. There are about 15 operators in the UK offering coasteering.

Sky diving: traditional parachuting just doesn’t sound risky enough, does it? So now skydiving is the name for jumping from a plane and listening to your heart pounding as you hurtle towards earth before you open your parachute at the last moment. Once you’ve got a few jumps under your parachute you can throw in some extra risks, for example try a ‘hook turn’. Dean Dunbar is a participant of extremedreams.com and his first sky dive was in 1998. Since then he’s been hooked on the buzz of the extreme, saying: „Every so often I have to go out and do something scary.“

Mountain biking: it’s been around so long that bikers are no longer satisfied with just going up and down a mountain. Nowadays thrill seeking mountain bikers want a big slope to go down very, very fast. „It’s pure mad, downhill,“ according to Dean Dunbar. „People go to old ski resorts, take the chair lift to the top then bomb down – amazingly not killing themselves.“

Back of the net! A reflection on the language of football

Have you ever stopped to think about some of the language we use to describe the world of football or soccer as it is also known? The word ‘soccer’ comes from ‘association’. Association Football was the full name of the sport in its early years. The ‘association’ part of the name differentiated it from rugby football, which, following the same pattern as ‘soccer’, is sometimes called ‘rugger’.

2014 Brazil World CupThe language used to describe football can sometimes be a little impenetrable (difficult to understand), even if you know how the game is played and have some experience of watching or playing it. Take this description of a passage of play (a short section of a game), as an example of how tricky football language can be. PROČITAJTE VIŠE OVDE

Leo Mesi glumi u TV spotu za srpski čips! Jeftina fotomontaža? Procenite sami…

Leo Mesi reklamira Chipsy u Brazilu

Svako bi bio srećan da jedan od najboljih fudbalera na svetu postane zaštitno lice njihovog proizvoda.

Tako je Leo Mesi postao zvezda reklame za srpski čips „Chipsy“. Reklama je juče osvanula na JuTjubu, ali umesto talasa pozitivnih reakcija mnogi su reklamu nazvali „jeftinom fotomontažom“.

Korisnici interneta primetili su kako se zapravo radi o istoj reklami koju je Mesi snimio za čips „Lay’s“.

Brzo je stiglo i objašnjenje za to. Naime, kompanija koja proizvodi „Chipsy“ od 2008. godine deo je kompanije „PepsiCo“, jednako kao i „Lay’s“. Zbog toga su dobili pravo da na njihovu originalnu reklamu jednostavno namontiraju drugu vrećicu čipsa i Sergeja Trifunovića.

A na brojne komentare korisnika na JuTjubu koji tvrde da je u pitanju fotomontaža, kompanija „Chipsy“ je dala sledeće objašnjenje: „Zbog snage koju „Chipsy“ ima na tržištima Balkana, „Chipsy“-ju je omogućeno da bude deo ove, globalne kampanje i da ga promoviše Leo Mesi jedan od najboljih fudbalera današnjice“.

U nastavku donosimo i originalnu reklamu za čips Lay’s:

Lay’s TV commercial featuring football superstar, Leo Messi

Lays Commercial Featuring Leo MessiLay’s announced a major global advertising campaign and new multi-dimensional promotional partnership launching in over 60 markets featuring record breaking football superstar, Leo Messi. The master brand commercial and centerpiece of the campaign was shot over the course of three days in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, and Barcelona, Spain. With the great taste of Lay’s potato chips at the center, the commercial builds off the insight that people enjoy pinching a Lay’s whenever they are near one and shows that not even a world-class footballer is can avoid his fans’ fingers. The commercial follows Messi as he crosses the streets of Rio, encountering fans who are clamoring for photos and autographs. With the international hit „Balada Tchê Tcherere Tchê Tchê“ by Brazilian superstar Gusttavo Lima providing the infectious backdrop, the commercial ends with Messi able to even the score and pinch his own Lay’s chip when posing for photos with unsuspecting Lay’s fans.
