The snowboarding season is upon us! We just got back from a trip to Mt. Hood Meadows, Oregon and had a blast snowboarding there. The tickets are more expensive than I remembered, ($79 for an adult day pass), but the terrain park was awesome and we had a great day boarding. My buddy used to live in Hood River and we had always meant to get up to the mountain, but it didn’t happen until we finally got together last week. What an amazing trip! His kids all had mini gear and boards and picked it up right away. They were blasting down the kid runs and it won’t be long until they’re keeping up with us.

It was near freezing the day we went, but we had 8″ of fresh powder and the terrain park was perfect. It’s been awhile since I’d been in a half-pipe, but I got my turns down and was pulling 180’s and 360’s soon enough – although my landings could have been cleaner. They’ve got some slick technology up there now, with RFID tags on all the tickets, digital trail maps, and even GPS tracking – they call it “Track Your Turns” – which my buddy took advantage of. You can get lessons and rent your gear up there as well. They’ve got some great instructors, for kids and adults alike. I’m thinking of taking some private lessons next time we go up to hone my skills. From what I learned, they have clinics and camps, private lessons, consecutive week programs, adaptive & freeride coaching and basic ski schools as well.

The resort was nice too. Good food and drinks while we were up there. Someone was even having a wedding while we were there…it looked cold but fun! Fully catered with awesome food…I was tempted to try and crash the wedding but kind of difficult with the snow-boarding gear I was wearing. The South and North lodges had most of the food options, and being a self-proclaimed “foodie” I had to try appetizers at several places. Good stuff! We also grabbed some coffee at the Higher Grounds Coffee Cafe (aptly named) before our afternoon runs.

To avoid traffic, we stayed until later in the day when all of the other families were heading out. Heading back down the mountain we were wrecked, but starving and thirsty. I had been dying to try out some local micro-brews, so we stopped in for some of the best pizza Bend, OR had to offer – at Pacific Pizza and Brew. What a beer selection! Awesome pizza and salads, and it was all I could do not to keep trying new micro-brews. The samplers at least were small, thankfully. I tasted about twenty different beers, between my orders and my friend’s beer orders. The kids loved the buffalo wings and fries, and they had checker boards printed on the backs of their pizza boxes with tokens, so we played games while we waited for our food.

All in all, it was an awesome trip. I can’t wait to go back again!


Now don’t you just hate it when your zipper pull breaks or cracks off, especially when you’re in a hurry? It is annoying don’t you think so? Well of course you always replace the whole zipper itself. Certainly it may not necessary be easy as it may need a little bit a skill but with practice, it is not as hard as it appears to be.

Imagine what would happen if your favorite dress or pants didn’t have a zipper. You’d be struggling, literally tugging and jerking at the fabric so it would fit your body. Chances are you’ll never be successful. If you do manage to wear it, it’ll be ripped and torn in various places. Zippers are indeed helpful, but there are instances when they cause you trouble: when they break. Since it’s embarrassing to be caught with an open, broken zipper, here’s how to properly fix a broken zipper

Materials Needed

* Pliers (a small needlenose pair is your best option) 
* Scissors 
* Needle 
* Strong thread (the thicker kind used for sewing on buttons, is better)


1. Using the pliers, carefully pry off the metal stop of the zipper. This is the small band found at its bottom, which works by stopping the slider when you try and open the zipper. You might find this a bit hard, but if you put muscle into it, you’ll do it well. If you can’t find pliers, a blunt kitchen knife or a screwdriver might do the trick. Just be careful, though!

2. Once the metal stop is removed, move the slider downwards, towards the bottom of the zipper, just below the teeth on the bottom-most portion. Don’t pull it off completely.

3. You now have to realign the teeth of the zipper, making them mesh smoothly. Use your fingers and arrange the teeth so that one of the sides isn’t all bunched up. Straighten the teeth out properly.

4. Start zipping the zipper upwards, just about halfway, with careful attention to whether the teeth are locking appropriately together. Do this procedure carefully, until you’re sure that the zipper is running straight again.

5. Get the needle and strong thread. Using these, sew around the area where the old metal stop was located. Your aim is to replace the stop with only the thread. Keep sewing and looping the zipper bottom firmly. At least six to seven stitches will do. If you need to, add more extra stitches. When you’re sure that it’s secure, tie off a knot on the back part of the zipper, and cut off the excess thread.

6. Pull the zipper upwards, all the way until it reaches the top. If you properly do it, the zipper won’t catch anymore.

7. If the zipper becomes misaligned again, you can simply remove the stitching using a seam ripper, and repeat the whole process.

A broken zipper can ruin a perfectly good outfit. Solve this unpleasant dilemma immediately through this simple procedure. This can take a shot at any sort of zipper, whether on garments, packs, and even on furniture covers. Showing improvement over having to totally supplant the entire zipper.


Being around the office here at 310 Casting Studios we hear a lot of talk about how our models stay in shape. So, we get to hear all the juicy secrets of how our top fitness models and spokespersons for nutritional products stay in top shope all throughout the year.

If our models are not in great shape then they can’t work. So, it is very important for them to burn fat maintain lean muscle mass and always look great. One of the things that we hear a lot of our models do is to run.

Running Helps Lose Weight

Running is a great way to burn off excess calories. Running can be fun and gets your blood pumping and is a great way to stay fit and trim and burn fat. However, you want to make sure that you don’t overdo your running. Some people take running too far and they end up with joint injuries and other kinds of health problems. Remember, the key is balance. Anything done too much stops being good for you. It’s great to go for a run, but that can’t be the only thing you do. Speaking of variety, another thing our models do to stay in great shape is to lift weights.

Weight Lifting For Fat Burning and Better Proportions

Now, lifting weights isn’t quite as simple as running. When you run you just find an open space and start running. Lifting weights however requires a little bit more knowledge. If you want to lift weights safely you have to make sure that you have the proper form. This however, is very helpful as it will help you to have good posture, have better proportions, and look better overall for your modeling. These can help when you are injured.

burn fat by lifting weights

Lifting weights is a great way to burn fat because it uses large muscle groups and requires a lot of energy to lift the weight. We recommend weight lifting moderately 3 to 5 times a week to help you to burn fat, lose weight, and stay in great shape so that you can work year-round.

Nutrition Is Key

Another useful tool in the models tool belt is nutrition. It’s very important for your nutrition to be on point. Without good nutrition it doesn’t matter how much running you do or how much weight lifting you do. Without good nutrition you simply won’t look great. A diet that lots of lean proteins and vegetables works for most. Lean proteins such as chicken breast and vegetables such as broccoli, carrots, and other cruciferous vegetables seem to work the best. In addition to this, some people have a hard time not eating junk food.

Mango Africano To Suppress Appetite

To help with this we recommend mango africano pills. The mango africano pills work great to suppress your appetite, and they give you more energy to do your workouts with. You don’t want to overdo it with the pastillas, though. They will not do all the work for you. You still have to exercise and eat properly. You can read more about them on the Mango Africano website, but consider them as just another tool in your tool belt to help you to get the results you want more quickly. A lot of our models have found it to be a great tool that to use as a supplement to their exercise and nutrition programs. Make sure that you check out this website for Pastillas de Mango Africano Weebly to make sure that it is safe for you to use and you do not have any of the contraindications.
