Mavericks Barbers: The one thing you HAVE to do for your beard!

first_imgThis week, the team at Mavericks in Letterkenny are sharing secrets from the barbershop floor in their guide in how to properly look after your beard. Beard oil is one of the most essential products that any beardsman can own. Using beard oil can take you from looking like the cat dragged you in the door backwards to the ultimate Maverick.From beardruff to beard itch, and the general texture of how your beard feels, the benefits are far and wide. A bit about how it is made upAny high-quality beard oil is typically made up of two distinct ingredients, a carrier oil and an essential oil.Carrier oils themselves will typically deliver many of the core benefits of any given beard oil as they make up about 90% of the actual oil. Typically used are jojoba, argan, sweet almond, grapeseed, and several others.The reason why these oils are so vastly used in beauty products is due to them being completely all natural and having terrific hydrating/moisturizing abilities for your skin and hair follicles. Many of the more expensive beard oils will typically include several essential oils in addition to a carrier oil, such as sandalwood or tea tree are which are natural antiseptics.Therefore, when applied to your skin, these essential oils will do a good job in clearing out your pores to reduce the occurrence of acne.Getting Rid Of That Dreaded Beard ItchJust about every man that grows a beard will start to notice that it gets a bit itchy.  While some Mavericks like to just “push through” this phase, this discomfort is completely unnecessary with the added use of beard oil.At the root of every one of your beard follicles, you have a pair of glands called sebaceous glands. The sebaceous glands create this oil called sebum oil. As your beard follicle gets longer, it simply requires more and more sebum oil to coat the follicle while also keep your skin well-nourished and moisturized. However, no matter the length of your beard, your sebaceous glands stay the same size.  Given that they are finite in size, their sebum oil production can’t effectively keep up with the demand of your beard follicle.As you can see, no matter the length of your beard, sebum oil remains constant.  Therefore, when your beard gets to a certain length (every man is different but typically after a few weeks of growth), their sebum oil just simply isn’t enough. This is when your beard and more importantly, your skin becomes dried out and itchy.So, the introduction of beard oil will act as a supplement to your sebum oil making the dreaded beard itch go away while also giving it the proper nourishment that it is seeking.But Beard Itch is Only Half the Story…. Beardruff? When you don’t use any sort of beard oil on your skin for an extended period of time and are constantly itching it due to irritation, beardruff will be born. Beardruff is essentially dandruff for your beard.  Your skin is so dry that when you start to itch it, the skin begins to flake causing white specs of beardruff to show up on your shirt. This is where the oil intervenes, keeping it conditioned, moisturized and the itch away.How It Looks While we have been concentrating a lot about your skin care with beard oil, it does help make your beard feel a lot softer, but also look great as well. Therefore, if your beard is feeling a bit scraggly or straw-like, regular application of beard oil will help in making it feel much better.This regular use of beard oil will also help with the reduction of split ends occurring.  If you are taking your beard growing seriously, the reduction of split ends will be good news as you won’t have to trim your beard nearly as often.In addition to the feel of your beard, the general appearance of your beard will also improve with the introduction of beard oil.The follicles of your beard will look a little bit shinier and healthier.When a man walks into Mavericks, we can tell whether he has been using beard oil or not regularly. It is simple, even untrimmed, his beard will still look in good shape!TipWhen applying, ensure you comb or brush through thoroughly to ensure oil reaches the root of the hair!!Call into Mavericks on lower Main Street Letterkenny to see our range of beard oils and we have a whole lot more… beard balms, beard shampoos, beard brushes moustache waxes and more, not to mention bespoke beard trimming!!!Also, you can catch up with us on Facebook  (www.facebook.com/Maverickstraditionalbarbershop) and follow us on Instagram (maverickstraditionalbarbershop) Snapchat @MAVERICKSTBS or Twitter www.twitter.com/mavericksbaber…or better still call in and treat yourself.Mavericks Barbers: The one thing you HAVE to do for your beard! was last modified: March 27th, 2019 by Mavericks BarbersShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Three and Four Point Editing in Adobe Premiere Pro

first_img3 and 4 point edits are a way to get a higher degree of control and precision in your Premiere Pro video editing.  Here’s how!Premiere Pro has many great tools to help editors get the right clip in the right place at the right length – three point editing is one of them.  That said, I don’t tend to use three point edits a great deal but when I do I find them to be very helpful especially when using the OUT point in the timeline.What is a 3 point edit?A three point edit requires you to specify 3 points in your project to make an edit. These points may well include the IN point and the OUT point of a clip in your project or source panel as 2 of the 3 points.IN and OUT Points of a Clip in the Project PanelBut that still leaves 1 more point to be specified, and this is done in the TIMELINE.The Timeline with an IN Point SpecifiedYou can either create an IN point in your timeline by simply selecting your timeline and going to the place where you want the edit to start and hitting the ‘I’ key to get the results shown above. Or use the OUT point method…The Timeline with and OUT Point SpecifiedYou can park your playhead in the Premiere Pro timeline at the point you want the clip to END and hit the ‘o’ key again as shown above.If you get the IN point or the OUT point in the wrong place, don’t worry, just right-click where you see the blue area indicating an IN or OUT point has been created and you will get an option to clear IN, OUT or both.So, you’ve set 3 points. The first 2 happen to be on the actual clip you want to insert and the third is on the Premiere Pro timeline. At this point you’re ready to insert your clip by selecting it and hitting the ‘point’ or ‘full-stop’ (.) key. This will create an overwrite or overlay edit with the the clip behaving as follows:If you have selected an IN point in your timeline then the IN point of the clip will match the IN point you have specified in the timeline.  The clip will overwrite into the timeline and its length will be the same length as you specified for the clip, potentially overwriting clips AFTER the place of insertion.If you have selected an OUT point in your timeline then the OUT point of the clip will match the OUT point you have specified in the timeline and the clip will over-write into the timeline from its OUT point FORWARDS – potentially overwriting the clips BEFORE the place of insertion.Inserted Clip Overwriting the Following Clip Because an IN Point Was SpecifiedFor me, I tend to use this more for inserting clips which have to end at a specific point (in other words by specifying an OUT point in the timeline) than for clips that need to start at a specific point.NOTE: You can also do three point editing in reverse of the above explanation.  Set an IN point and an OUT point in the TIMELINE and just an IN point OR an OUT point on the clip. The clip would start at the IN point of the clip and end at the OUT point set in the Premiere Pro timeline.4 Point Editing in Premiere ProWell, a four point edit will have IN and OUT points on both the clip AND the timeline. However, as you can image it is highly improbable that the length of the clip from IN to OUT and the length of the space in the timeline from IN to OUT will be the same.Timeline AND Clip with IN and OUT Points SpecifiedThus, because of this mismatch, when you hit the point or full-stop key (.) to overwrite the clip into the timeline you get the following ‘Fit Clip’ options box.Fit Clip Option BoxThis box is basically telling you, ‘OK, the clip IN and OUT points won’t match the IN and OUT you’ve specified in your timeline so what do you want me to do about it? The default setting is simply to ignore the sequence (timeline) OUT point and let the clip flow along down the timeline, but what do you want?’As you can see the options include ignoring both clip and sequence (timeline) IN or OUT points or – at the very top – ‘Change Clip Speed (Fit to Fill)’. This option will either speed the clip up to fit into a space smaller than the length of the clip OR slow the clip down if the clip is shorter than the space you want it to fit into – which can be a really useful option.  One note though, this option will affect the audio of the clip. So, if you end up speeding up the clip the audio will get higher pitched and, if you slow it down, the audio will get lower pitched which may not be what you want to do (however, you can always strip out the audio after the fact).Use 3 and 4 point editing in your Premiere Pro timeline to get precise control over your edits!last_img read more

Competitive UP good for UAAP

first_imgFire hits houses in Mandaluyong City But there seems to be a change in the way things are being done for the Fighting Maroons basketball team and there’s a renewed interest in its hoop campaign.The buzz isn’t just about that big win against De La Salle University, the defending champion, although the triumph created ripples of conversation in basketball circles and on social media. It’s more about having a chance in every game to score a win against both the frontrunners and the struggling teams.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutA competitive UP team will spread interest not only for its community but also for basketball followers in general. College ball is interesting beyond school alliances. The game is played by young players whose skills are still being formed and that’s why flashes of brilliance are just as fascinating as fumbles and turnovers.It’s also about getting the community together to come to the games and cheer together and UP does have a sizeable number of students and alumni that can converge. But to keep them coming, the team has to remain competitive as it’s hard to root for a squad that can’t stay in the game till the very end. All the UAAP schools have undergone difficult seasons, where wins have been hard to achieve. You see that in the University of Santo Tomas Growling Tigers who still have to win in the current tournament. Very often teams struggle for wins because it also matters who you are pitted against in a given season and what kind of players you have.It cannot be a case of a lack of trying by teams that haven’t won that much. It’s just that the other teams are so well stacked up and have been playing together for some time. La Salle and Ateneo do not simply have adequate support but also have teams that have been together through at least two years and that is vital for forging team chemistry.So we find the Fighting Maroons in the conversation in the current UAAP season. Many alumni are hopeful for a Final Four finish, something that hasn’t happened in almost two decades. It will be good to see a large sea of maroon in the stands on a regular basis shouting unique cheers that can rev up the game.ADVERTISEMENT Read Next BSP sees higher prices in November, but expects stronger peso, low rice costs to put up fight LOOK: Loisa Andalio, Ronnie Alonte unwind in Amanpulo for 3rd anniversary Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles01:00Chief Justice Peralta on upcoming UAAP game: UP has no match against UST01:37Protesters burn down Iran consulate in Najaf01:47Panelo casts doubts on Robredo’s drug war ‘discoveries’01:29Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university01:35Panelo suggests discounted SEA Games tickets for students02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games View comments Frontrow holds fun run to raise funds for young cancer patients center_img Nonong Araneta re-elected as PFF president Fire hits houses in Mandaluyong City Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Scorpions want to sting again

first_imgBy BEN HARRISIt seemed New South Wales Scorpions came from the clouds last year to win the women’s Elite Eight division at National Touch League.This year they won’t be so incognito.With the targets on their back, every team will be gunning for the Scorpions.They had an unblemished record in 2014, which gives them the confidence heading into this year’s campaign.Adding to that confidence is majority of last year’s side remain, which makes them definite short-priced favourites.New South Wales Mets will be nipping around once again.The perennial finalists love the Elite Eight, having played in every final since the first competition at the 2011 NTL. This year should be no different.Louise Winchester is the major drawcard for this side; she’ll work in tandem with Ash Quinlan.Mets also picked up Shellie Davis and Tayla Clifford to add to their arsenal.Queensland Chiefs have a lot of Australian representatives – 10 in all – playing and will be a team to keep an eye on.Emily Hennessey returns and she adds that much-needed spark the Chiefs were lacking last year where they were knocked out in the semi-finals.Their matches against Mets and Scorpions will be incredible showdowns.The Stingrays could be the dark horses of the competition having made the semi-finals last year.They have some talented players but it will come down to consistency.Stability was something lacking the New South Wales Country Mavericks in 2014.The Mavericks failed to win a match last year despite making the final four in 2013.A new coach and a new-looking side means the Mavericks should go better this year.New South Wales Rebels, Queensland Country Outlaws and The Alliance are not to be discounted from the field.The Outlaws made massive improvements in 2014 and with a lot of youth-based players in their side, they could pull off a few upsets.The Rebels didn’t have the best of it last year but they only missed the finals by a win.Not having Maddie Studdon (injury) is a lost but there are other Australian representatives who are able to step up.The Alliance is building every year and will be hard opposition for teams.Leah Percy captains the side, which has brought on the best talent from around the country.You can keep up-to-date with all of the latest news and information from the 2015 National Touch League in the following ways: Websites www.ntl.mytouchfooty.com www.touchfootball.com.au Social Media Facebook – www.facebook.com/touchfootballaustralia Twitter – www.twitter.com/touchfootyaus (be sure to use the hashtag #NTL2015) Instagram – www.instagram.com/touchfootballaustralia YouTube – www.youtube.com/touchfootballaus (live streaming of select games will occur, stay tuned to www.touchfootball.com.au for all of the links)Related LinksWomen’s Elite Eight previewlast_img read more
