The F1 Paddock is probably the most exciting place to visit during a F1 competition – not only do you get right close up to the cars and the teams, but you also get to rub
Monaco F1 Grand Prix
shoulders with the drivers and any celebrities that might be at the event – and if you are lucky enough to get a paddock pass at Monaco or Abu Dhabi, you could even find yourself chatting with movie stars like Brad Pitt or George Clooney – both these Hollywood actors and many more have been seen at the Formula One.
However, unfortunately you cannot just attend a race as a regular spectator and then decide to buy a pass. The paddock club is a VIP area and needless to say, spots are pretty limited. In fact, the only way of getting in that I am aware of is to purchase the pass as part of a package. You can expect to pay around £4K for a paddock pass; that might seem a lot of money but if you break it down and itemise what you actually get in the way of entertainment and gourmet meals, it is not as pricey as it first seems.
Here is a breakdown of what you will get with a Paddock Club F1 ticket:
- VIP access and a privileged spot to watch the race
- Time to walk about the pit lane (not during the race obviously)
- Open bar with free champagne
- Gourmet buffet or a sit down meal plus fine wines
- Official souvenir programme
- Live entertainment (and it won’t be some local guitarrist!)
- A parking pass for one car
- Ear plugs
And many other benefits. At most events, the Paddock Club is the only VIP area, so if your budget allows it, it really is worth forking out the money, for a F1 weekend of a lifetime.

One of the most popular sports in the UK is football. Of course there are those who prefer to call it soccer but really this particular term does not entirely capture the essence of the game. Football is a beautiful game no doubt and this is exactly why almost every country on the planet has a national team. However as far as club football is concerned, the UK definitely takes the lead. Millions of fans across the country stream into stadiums every week to watch their favourite clubs battle it out for glory.
Football in the UK is almost like a religion. Fans from across the board show their support in all manner of ways including tattooing club names, emblems etc on their bodies. Club jerseys and a wide range of other football accessories are also readily available in various shops across the country; needless to say it is big business.
Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspurs and Aston Villa are some of the most popular football clubs in the UK. When these and other teams play, it is a guarantee that stadiums will be packed. Watching football live in a stadium is simply breathtaking, in reality; there is almost nothing else quite like it. Here you will get to hear the deafening screams of fans as they chant all manner of slogans in support of their respective teams; you will witness a game’s progress in reality-view – no camera angles or replays. In short, the football stadium is where you will get the real feel of the game.
In the UK, football is one game that has withstood the test of time and without a doubt it will continue to be around for hundreds of years to come. Scoring goals and winning trophies is undoubtedly a very big part of football, but that is not all there is to the beautiful game. There is that aspect of bringing together people who share a common passion in a place where they can freely express their love for the game. It is about sharing in those short but magical moments that remain etched in the mind forever. Football promotes unity, it makes people happy and sad but at the end of the day, the beauty of the game remains true.
If you want to be part of the cult that is live club football in the UK then you will have to purchase tickets. To avoid disappointment, ensure that you buy your football tickets early on and from authorised merchants.

Just because you have the money needed to promote your website does not mean that you would gain the wanted popularity online. Internet marketing means to spend every dime with a purpose, and every cent must be transformed into a potential visitor or buyer. It is important, especially for small companies that don’t have such generous budgets, and where every dollar is important.
1. Start by optimizing your website for search engines. If you want to initiate a PPC campaign, you will have to make sure that your visitors have interesting articles to read on your website. therefore, a SEO campaign that optimizes a website for certain keywords is needed before a PPC campaign based on the same keywords.
2. Create business pages for your small business on all the relevant social networks. You will need a Facebook business account, from where you would be able to start targeted Facebook campaigns, which are really useful. Open a Twitter account for your company, pas there, you can offer updates about all the new products and services introduced in your offer.
3. Start PPC campaigns on Google. Even if the campaigns of those kinds cost money, the results would worth the expenses, as the visitors that you gain though those campaigns would probably buy your products and services. Try to find some solid affiliate marketing services, which offer you consistent commissions, and present the offers and services of the respective companies. This way, the visitors would trust your site, and they would start to buy products and services from your links. Another good idea for PPC marketing is to make a review site, where you recommend the best products for your visitors.
Remember when doing any sort of online marketing, it will have a learning curve, so start of slowly and hold back with the amount of money you invest until you see your campaigns making a steady profit.

If like me, you are on a budget and need a new mattress, a good choice is a . Spring mattresses are quite a bit cheaper than later or memory foam beds, and they are also softer, so a great option for those who like sleeping on a soft surface.
Pockets of pocket spring mattresses move with the human body to adapt to its contours and enable us to rest well. The mattress surface reacts very quickly, to ensure that movement does not wake us up through the night. Pocket spring mattresses aren’t only flexible and move with the body, but they are also incredibly comfy: due to the layer of soft padding between the spring coils in every pocket and the sleeping body.
The extreme flexibility of pocket spring mattresses allow a good night’s sleep even for people who suffer with bad backs or a painful or misaligned spine. Because each pocket adapts to a body’s contours, there is absolutely no pressure or pain, even after hours of sleeping in the same position. Regardless how restless a sleeper you may have been when sleeping on your old mattress, with a pocket mattress you will awaken relaxed and renewed.

The recent recession is still raging strong in many European countries, and prices of properties are far lower than they were in the boom years of 2005 to 2007. the countries worse hit include some of the most popular places for purchasing a second home or retirement – these include Spain, Portugal and Greece. So is it a good idea to take advantage of the low property prices in these countries and invest in a retirement or holiday home?
That depends very much where you buy. Budapest in Hungary is a great choice for investment property at present. You can expect to find it easy to rent the property, and the transaction costs to buy are relatively low. in addition, the law id pro-landlord, which is quite unusual, as most European countries are pro-tenant. However, before buying in Hungary, you should be aware the rental income tax is fairly high.
Another interesting location is Istanbul in Turkey. Properties are relatively cheap to buy, and you can expect fairly high rental income. Turkey is a country that has survived the current recession extremely well, and has rapid economic growth. on the downside, the Turkish law is pro-tenant, and income tax on rental income is moderately high.
Most people are more interested in buying property in European towns where they have holidayed, or would consider retiring. This of course makes perfect sense – as you can profit of the home until you retire, then use it yourself. For more information about investing in property in Europe, try this site.

Starting a blog is a great way to focus your ideas, and share them and your opinions with others.
When starting a blog, one of the most important things one of the most important things to consider when starting your blog is the design and theme you we use. Have you ever visited a website which looked really dull and immediately exited? The answer is probably yes, so you will realise how important it is that your website looks good. Fortunately when first starting a blog there is no need to spend a lot of money on a theme if your site is for personal blogging or you are planning on developing a small commercial blg.
You will find many free themes available online and in particular for WordPress the most popular content management system and blogging platform today. You will find there are basically three different types of themes available; free, premium, or custom.
A custom theme is one that will be made for you and you alone. If you’re planning on getting a custom theme made it is important that you choose a trustworthy web designer who has good feedback. Creating a blog theme is not difficult if you have the right program, but creating a stunning blog theme is something taht requires talent and skills.
A premium theme is one that has been made by a professional web designer, but will be sold to many different clients. Therefore, if you buy a premium theme you can be sure that it is well-designed and looks great, although it will not be unique to your blog alone. A premium theme is the ideal option if you do not have too much money to spend but want your website to look fantastic and professional.
Free themes are best if you do not have enough money for a premium or custom theme. You will find many free WordPress themes available, and some look really stunning. You can also customise free themes if you know some coding, but do check the usage rights as you may not be permitted to change all elements of a free theme if you wish to use it.

When you are browsing estate agent websites or looking at window displays with regards to buying a property in Spain, you will see several different types of properties for

sale. These include villas, “pisos”, apartments, “fincas rusticas”, studios, and townhouses; which may be referred to as “casas de villa”.
A townhouse will generally be a building of two or three storeys in the centre of a town. It may be part of a terrace or possibly a detached building on a small plot. This type of property is ideal if you like to be near the town centre amenities and local services.
An apartamento, studio, (bedsit) or “piso” (a large apartment – usually consisting of three or more bedrooms) is most likely to be in a larger block, and this type of property will often have a communal garden and swimming pool. When purchasing a property in a block you will be charged an annual fee for the upkeep of the block. There is usually a committee who decides how the money will be spent, and you will have to pay regardless of whether you agree with the proposals or not. If you prefer to make your own choices about upkeep, maintenance and when a building façade needs painting or reforming, you should really look at an independent house or chalet.
Villas are most often detached houses, or sometimes depending on the “urbanización”, semi-detached. A villa will most likely have its own garden, and in many cases a private swimming pool. Villas are usually found on purpose built urbanisations, often located a few miles from the town centre . It is not unusual to find a property on and urbanisation with shared facilities such as a swimming pool, tennis facilities, and play areas for children.
A finca rustica is a farmhouse type dwelling usually located in a rural or semi-rural location. The finca will probably have plenty of land attached, where you can grow produce. When looking at fincas you should check if there are electric and water installations. Many of these properties are built in areas where there is no grid electricity and water is provided by a well. Although some people thrive under these more natural conditions, others find living in such circumstances trying, so do make sure you know exactly what amenities are installed when looking at fincas.

Apparently, as humans we spend about 30% of our life at work, mostly sitting down in office chairs facing our screens. But how many of us really think about how the way we are sitting is affecting our posture or contributing to potential back problems further down the line?
According to the NHS 80% of us are likely to encounter back pain at some point in our lives and back pain is the second greatest cause of long-term disability after arthritis. Serious accidents and lifting strains are obvious ways of doing damage to your back, but how many of us realise that the way we sit at work in our office chairs could be slowly damaging our back and causing long-term damage?
Slouching in office chairs, stooping over our desks or having legs too far off the ground can all contribute to serious back problems by putting strain on the delicate spinal cord. The lower part of your back, known as the lumbar region is also highly susceptible to damage when you’re sitting in office chairs. It has to support the entire weight of your body and is under constant pressure when the body twists and bends.
According to a 2010 study, the average person in the UK spends over 14 hours a day sitting down. At least 4 hours and 17 minutes of that is spent at work sitting in office chairs. In that case, it seems even more important to choose office chairs that are good quality and ergonomically sound.
How do I know if my Office Chairs are ergonomic?
Many businesses will have a Health and Safety expert representative who you should get in touch with to discuss how ergonomic your office chairs really are. They may even have a specially trained ergonomics supervisor, who will come and perform an ergonomics test on your office chairs and the surrounding office space. Office chairs should be adjusted so that your bottom and lower back are right back in the seat pan when you sit down, with your feet flat on the floor. You should have a gap of around 2-3 inches between where the office chairs seat ends and the backs of your legs begin. Use the height adjuster at the back of your office chairs to move up or down as needed, in order to achieve this position.
Recommended Office Chairs for Bad Backs.
In my last job we were lucky enough to each have a Global Office chairs as our office chairs. These are some of the best ergonomic office chairs on the market today. As well as having a bright and cheerful red cushioning, they have slatted cushioning at the back of the chair to allow the fabric to breathe and keep your back at an optimum temperature. The thing that really sets it apart from other office chairs though is its LiveBack technology. When you move it moves with you, mirroring and supporting your spine as it moves and flexes.
