Review: iDive 300 iPod/iPhone underwater case

Dive News
 
Underwater movie watching and music listening done right

Underwater movie watching and music listening done right

If you’re a professional scuba diver, there’s probably one aspect of your career that you really dislike: the interminable decompression stops. For those who don’t know, professional divers tend to dive much deeper, and for much longer, than do recreational divers such as myself. As a result, they build up lots of inert gases in their bloodstream, and these gases need to be purged before surfacing so as to avoid decompression sickness. For example, the US Navy’s dive tables show that a diver spending 60 minutes at a depth of 130 feet must make four decompression stops totaling nearly 90 minutes before surfacing!

As a recreational diver, I don't have anywhere near such requirements—just a three minute “safety stop” at 15 feet of depth. I can easily pass those minutes by just looking around at the undersea environment. But if I had 90 minutes or more to wait before surfacing, the surroundings would quickly turn monotonous. You can’t read a book or magazine, for obvious reasons, and taking a nap isn’t a good idea, either, as you need to maintain your depth and be awake to monitor your equipment. Sounds like a recipe for hours of boredom, doesn’t it?

Until recently, it probably was. But add H2O Audio’s iDive 300 Deep Dive Waterproof Case & Speakers to the mix, and you can use those decompression stops to watch a movie, listen to an audiobook, or be serenaded by your music collection. You can also use the iDive 300 during your dive, as well as while snorkeling and swimming.

The iDive 300 lets you use your iPhone or iPod underwater to watch video and listen to audio (you can't run apps or use the phone). Specifically, the iDive protects your player down to an incredible depth of 300 feet—recreational divers are limited to 120 feet, and most "waterproof" iPod cases we've tested work only to 10 feet or so. Your iPod or iPhone fits snugly inside the case using several included spacers and trim pieces. The iDive 300's amplified, outside-the-ear headphones—actually small speakers—are permanently connected and can be either clipped to the sides of your mask or tucked inside a dive hood.

First Choice Tips Egypt To Be a 2009 Family Holiday Hotspot

Tourism News
 
Families are looking to countries out-side the euro-zone

Combines luxury leisure pursuits with the most modern business and meetings facilities

Leading family holiday company First Choice, is tipping Egypt to be a popular destination for family holidays this year, as thousands of holiday-makers flock to the North African country to take advantage of what it has to offer.

According to the recent Foreign and Commonwealth Office and ABTA report British visitor numbers to Egypt has risen 38% in the last year* and it’s not hard to see why. As the pound suffers against the Euro, families are looking to countries out-side the euro-zone for their holidays and not only that Egypt also offers a wide range of high standard accommodation offering all-inclusive board making it easier to budget spending money.

Combining history, culture and year-round sun, holidays in Egypt have always been popular, but this year, the country is proving to be exceptionally good value for money with all-inclusive resorts and a favorable exchange rate.

There’s so much to do and see with snorkeling in the Red Sea to visiting the Pyramids of Giza and Luxor, and if you are planning to get married abroad but want somewhere with a flight time of less than six hours follow in the foot steps of Spice Girl Mel B who wed Stephen Belafonte in Hurghada last November in a four-day family extravaganza.

Spotlight on…. Freediving

Without a mechanical breathing apparatus, you’re truly free

Without a mechanical breathing
apparatus, you’re truly free

Freediving—How to Get Started

Soft, smooth, quiet, confident, serene, peaceful: all these adjectives hint at the intense pleasure well-trained freedivers feel. Imagine coasting below the waves, playing "drop the leaf" with wild dolphins, flying in formation with giant manta rays or simply joining a school of fish. Without a mechanical breathing apparatus, you’re truly free—free to flow effortlessly into the womb-like, enveloping water, free to join the ocean not as a interloper but as a welcome friend.

A simple definition of freediving is an inch and a breath—an inch underwater on a breath of air. Snorkelers qualify but there is one more important element separating freedivers from snorkelers. It’s the feeling of true ease and relaxation under the water. You live in the moment, so absorbed that an hour spent freediving erases a week’s worries.

Humans share special diving adaptations with marine mammals. The most dramatic is the "mammalian diving reflex." Simply immersing your face in cold water causes a reflexive slowing of your heart rate. This, as well as other oxygen-sparing adaptations, helps to prolong your dives. Your spleen releases extra blood cells and blood vessels in your skin and large muscles constrict, reserving blood for more vital organs, namely your heart and brain. With just a few weeks practice, you can develop your own latent freediving abilities.

Top Five Tips for Handling Cravings and Emotional Eating

Lifestyle
There is much more to consider: the psychological aspects

There is much more to consider:
the psychological aspects

The connection between food and mood for humans is generally immense. We eat to celebrate; we eat if we feel sad; we eat to ‘reward’ ourselves; we eat because someone gives us something and we feel ‘obliged’. Ironically, we rarely seem to eat simply to fuel the physical body. Yet we tend to so rarely discuss our strong emotional connections to food. Some people may never even have given it a thought.

At the same time, many people feel that they struggle with cravings for foods they don’t truly want to eat, or they hanker for excessive amounts of food. Why do cravings happen? Well, a big reason of course is that until you remove the ‘foods’ that are highly physiologically addictive (such as processed starches and refined sugars) from the intake completely, they remain in your system and you stay addicted. Beyond the physiological addiction, however, there is much more to consider: the psychological aspects.

Most of us form emotional associations with food at a very young age. Children are routinely given food to pacify them, cheer them up, reward them and so on. This creates strong psychological bonds between our feelings and our food. Children are often coerced into eating when they’re not hungry, finishing meals ‘to make Mummy happy’ and so on. Eating thus becomes a way of getting approval and finding comfort and happiness. It is mostly a false kind of happiness though, when examined more closely. Far from bringing genuine joy, the child gets hooked into life-long patterns of ‘using’ foods that are potentially damaging. There is a genuine joy in life far sweeter than any candy bar, which we can all access at any moment simply by choosing to pay attention to our true feelings and coming into alignment with what is ‘natural’, i.e., nature.
