Yamamoto had just reported at the end of last month that he was suffering from cancer. Strong spirit of Yamamoto made him use all his energy to battle the disease. Moreover, he wished to come back to MMA if he could win the greatest battle of his life. Unfortunately, the star lost that fight.
Kid Yamamoto was born in 1977 in Kawasaki, Kanagawa, Japan. Few would have imagined that Norifumi Yamamoto would turn into a legend of MMA. But this is precisely what occurred and the Japanese mixed martial arts scene has become even due his success. The man who would soon be known under the pseudonym Kid Yamamoto his career in the mixed martial arts at the beginning of 2000s, after defeating Masato Shiozawa.
Yamamoto had to enter lightweight section of K-1 and its parent enterprise Hero’s. At 5’4, Yamamoto was obviously short for the section. However, he made it to be the 2005 Hero’s Middleweight (75 kg) Grand Prix winner. It is impossible to forget the amazing 4-second knockout that Yamamoto brought to Kazuyuki Miyata in spring 2006.
Following is a condolence on the death of Yamamoto from the official Twitter account of KRAZY BEE:
“Yamamoto Kid (41) to all those who supported Yamamoto Kid, he died today on September 18th. I want to express my heartfelt thanks to all the fans.
Moreover, I ask you to abstain from interviewing the Yamamoto family and friends for a while.
We all offer our condolences to the relatives and friends of Kid Yamamoto.
Soft fluffy “clothing”, in which the floors are dressed, covers the territory of all rooms in the home, office, hotels called the shaw carpet, and everywhere because of its presence everything becomes warm and cozy.
Mankind has long been aware of carpeting, and if once they were considered a luxury, today they have become available to almost everyone. Rolls of shaw carpet (fitted carpet) with a variety of drawings or finished plots, purchased recently quite widespread. Its immense popularity was earned thanks to its practicality, ease of installation and affordable price.
Basis in the carpet can be a single-layer and double-layer. In the first case it is a dense fabric with synthetic woven fiber cloth. If you look at the second option in the context, one thing can be clearly identified: the pile, fixing the layer, a primary and a secondary basis.
Undoubtedly, because of the coverage room atmosphere becomes cozy and warm, it is a good sound insulator, and it is quickly laid. It is made on the artificial basis and it is quite affordable. It does not react to changes in humidity, temperature and the quality of its fundamentals does not impose any special requirements.
Carpet fits almost any room, except ones with high humidity and dampness.
The layer of air between the ground and carpet pile perfectly retains heat, heating the floor in the cold winter days.
All of this, undoubtedly, is talking about its benefits. But nothing in the world is perfect, and the shaw carpet has its small flaws, such as operational impracticality, allergic reactions that can provoke some of its types.
This is the oldest method for carpets producing, a long and complicated process, and the technology which is used in the production of the famous persian carpets. Its footing is jute and on it as on the mantle, twisting one-color or multicolored yarn, ties are knotted (then their ends are trimmed). The quality of the product is excellent. However, it has a high price, but in fact it is made entirely of natural materials.
At the tafting (tufted) method of manufacturing a needle with yarn is output through the pile footage. The hinges on the front side are left with pre-set height. They can be cut from the inside and secure basis with a special material (a secondary basis).
This natural material guarantees safety and environmental friendliness. However, long-term operation of carpet on this basis leads to abrasion and destruction of jute fibers and primer coat. The base when moisturing starts to rot, shrinkage is possible.
The hand towel is the one you usually find hanging near the sink and measures about 16”x30”.You will find this versatile size at the spa, fitness center, hair salon, and of course in any bathroom.
Organic Cotton – Certified organic cotton is culled from earth-friendly crops that don’t use synthetic fertilizers or pesticides and are harvested using sustainable methods. Towels made from these fibers may have the same look and feel as standard cotton, but without the excess baggage and larger carbon-footprint.
Egyptian Cotton – Generally considered the highest-quality cotton because of its extra-long fibers and high-absorbency, Egyptian cotton is typically the top choice for luxury hotels and spas. Turkish Cotton – Similar to Egyptian cotton with extra-long fibers, this premium cotton is grown exclusively in the Turkish region. Turkish cotton towels are soft, luxurious and absorbent, though not quite as much as the premium Egyptian alternative.
Pima Cotton – Grown in the American Southwest using the same plants as Egyptian cotton, Pima Cotton is considered a superior fiber and renowned for its strength and durability. Also known by the brand name “Supima”.
Bamboo – Usually a Bamboo/Cotton blend, but sometimes 100% bamboo. Bamboo grows quickly and doesn’t require pesticides. It is highly absorbent which makes it an excellent choice for towels. Bamboo blends are very soft, supple, color-fast, luxurious, and are a naturally anti-bacterial fabric.
Microfiber Blends – Microfiber is starting to make headway in the towel market as a newer alternative. Typically a polyester blend, microfiber towels can absorb a remarkable amount of water. The high-tech blends can be adjusted to create towels that are plush and luxurious.
The important thing you need to check is the color. During the first time washing, the bad towel will make the whole water into the towel’s color, and you will find the same situation during the second time washing; while the good towel is quite different, it only have little loose color. What is loose color? it is the color left during the dying. It is normally.
Other important thing is the feeling of the towel. A good towel should be very soft, and very absorbent after put into water.
Tips for buying the towel: it would be better to buy a brand towel. Then you will know this towel is properly produced and the cotton used is under supervise.
A good towel will make you just like doing a SPA; while a bad towel will destroy your skin, even damage your health.
Children’s room is a room, which design should be considered very carefully, because it is in your power to create a real fairy tale for the child, while being guided by his or her preferences and desires. Of course, you can simply choose a neutral wallpaper and ordinary furniture, but if your child’s room will look like thousands of others, left with no personality.
Children’s room for the toddlers is made, of course, in accordance with the preferences of the parents. Soft and warm colors are the best things for it and furnishings should be made of environmentally friendly materials. Most often, at the room for newborn there is a crib, playpen, chest of drawers for storage, changing table and chair-transformer. For mothers convenient frameless chair can be provided.
Room of preschool and primary school kid should be not only beautiful, but also give him or her opportunity to grow, to do sport, to play. There is a place now not only for calm tones, but for the bright and vivid colors too, the main thing is that they do not irritate the child.
Transformer bed will replace the usual ones; chairs can be replaced with comfortable ottomans or frameless furniture, to separate out the special zone for games and sports.
No less grateful theme is an underwater world, it is one of the species of marine styling, but for the visitors there should be arisen the sensation that he or she has accidentally fell into the abode of Poseidon. The main colors are white, blue, light blue, accents of bright colors are possible. Pay attention to the decor: for this purpose stencil patterns are well suited, as well as all kinds of stickers and wallpapers with thematic images, souvenirs brought back from faraway places, cushions in the shape of an octopus, fish, sea stars, and so on.
Another unusual variant is a tree house. However, it will be placed not in the courtyard, but at the usual city apartment. It can be placed in the playing area, your child will certainly like that kind of sanctuary.
Eco theme fits well into the interior of a child’s room too. When turning a room into a real fairy-tale forest, it is very important to choose the right decor – it should be combined with furniture (of course, it must be wooden, stylized). The desired colors are all shades of green, yellow, sand, brown, light blue.
You can turn the room into a mini-dollhouse: pastel shades, plenty of pillows, frills, lightweight fabrics, beautiful dolls and toys will do the trick.

Joint design of the room to get closer parents and child, and the crumb will get its individual space, the house of his or her dreams!
If you are the owner of the Mazda RX-8, probably you want to improve it and make the ride even faster
For starters, you can replace the spark coils (e.g. BHR or Promaz is analogue of Bosch coils, you will need x4 amplifier Microtech). Replacement of coils should be carried out when your current coil will deny.
If you feel the vibration at idle – check and replace engine mountings if necessary.
Then you should get a good set of rubber, something like Toyo R888 for the track on lightweight forged wheels.
The next step should be the modernization of suspension and braking system. This is achieved by installing a set of coilovers, for example, KW V3, Greddy Type S or BC BR-Range (Taiwanese manufacturer that uses Greddy / HKS components), reinforced stabilizers Whiteline (greatly influence on the handling for little money), and stabilizer bushings, sports brake discs and pads.
You can replace the factory grip on some well-known brands such as ACT and Exedy, change all vacuum tubes to silicone.
For better monitoring the condition of the car, in the vehicle you can accommodate extra gauges showing temperature and oil pressure, boost pressure (for example, Racing Beat).
Further, a significant step in improving can be the installing of 2-stroke oil adapter for the oil metering pump (WDR, Oil Metering Pump). These adapters are produced, for example, by Rotary Aviation, Real World Solutions and Richard Sohn. The adapter consists of a metal plate with several holes in it and a nozzle which can be connected to a hose. The purpose of the adapter is to stop motor oil using to lubricate apex seals in the rotary engine, that gives the following advantages:
- The engine no longer burns the oil from the oil pan;
- Engine seals get fresh, clean oil;
- Engine seals are lubricated by 2-stroke oil, which should be burned.
And now a little boring theory.
Wankel engine, which are used in Mazda RX8, needs oil in the combustion zone to lubricate metal seals.
Most of the standard rotary engines use the dosing pump which injects a small amount of engine oil from the sump into the intake manifold and / or directly into the combustion chamber. Engine oil is intended to lubricate the slide bearings and heat transfer from the engine to the cooling area.
The RX8 heat transfer is made from the oil via the oil cooler. When the engine oil is injected into the combustion chamber it is only partially burned, leaving sludge. These sludges can be accumulated and they will degrade the performance of the engine, also they can cause jams at apex seals, reducing compression and, ultimately, to the overhaul of the engine.
One obvious way to prevent this is disconnecting the metering pump and mix oil for two-stroke engines with gasoline, as required to do for some of the old two-stroke engines. With this method, it was proved that the oil for two-stroke engines is effective lubrication and does not lead to the accumulation of combustion products.
Eco design and, therefore, natural products, and interior elements become more and more popular all around the world. One such element is the natural sheepskins and sheepskin rugs on the floor that look unusually in all interiors, consisting of all-natural materials and not expensive at the price.
Sheepskin is a skin of sheep (young or mature), which is widely used for domestic purposes. One of the main advantages of sheepskins is their natural and healing properties. Even in ancient times, people were constantly using sheepskins in everyday life. The natural sheepskins contain lanolin – a natural antiseptic of animal origin, which has a positive effect on the human body.
When choosing flooring or carpet, many opt for products made of sheepskin due to the price of the finished product.
Carpets made of sheepskin and a single perfect skin fit in different types of interior, both classic and modern.
Products made of sheepskin are hypoallergenic, do not cause allergic reactions, because they can be used as a rug for a children’s room, as well as other areas in the house.
Hides and sheepskin rugs vacuuming good, do not collect a lot of dust by themselves. It is enough to vacuum them periodically, and shake them out to keep clean.
They have good thermal and sound insulation properties. Hides of sheepskin are very warm and soft, to walk on them will be nice and helpful. Rugs and sheep skins on the floor will be an excellent choice for inhabitants of cold regions.
Large range of colors and shapes of skins and rugs from sheep skins allows you to choose what is necessary for you. According to the form often they are single (in the form of herringbone) hides and skins of several mats (seamed from two, four, and so on). Carpets of standard forms are produced too (rectangular, round, square) and size of the sheepskins.
How is it better to choose and buy a sheepskin or lambskin rug?
First we need to decide on the colors and sizes of sheepskin on the floor.
Length of pile on the rug or on the skin of sheep. There are 3 types of pile length: low pile, skins with medium pile and long-haired carpets and sheepskin hides. Depending on the length of the pile, the skins will look differently; they will vary in softness, and most importantly, ease of cleaning, the longer is the pile, the harder it will be to clean.
If you decide to buy a sheepskin, then pay attention to the quality of skin currying to make it smooth and soft without flaws. Some manufacturers treated skins of sheep badly, and they preserve the natural odor, and many people do not like it.
Usually New Zealand sheep skins are considered to be the highest quality. There are also many sheepskins and carpets producers in Turkey, India, Nepal, Russia, Poland, Ukraine and other countries; among them you can find quality products too.
The choice of decent “tools of kitchen production” is an indicator of the professionalism and experience of its direct owner, and the status of the restaurant.
The blade is a key element of the knife. Key indicators are endurance, strength, flexibility, hardness, durability, resistance to abrasion, the ability to keep rake. The thickness and shape of the blade directly depend on which type of work and what kitchen style knife is designed for. As for the blade, in turn, there are three major components – the edge, butt, cutting edge. That is the knife point and the type of sharpening that made the knife suitable for particular works. Utility (chef) blade has a central tip (exactly halfway between the edge and the butt). The more rounded is the blade, and the edge is snub-up, the more it allows the cook to make an effort at some point – for example, the separation of hard strings (for cutting meat with bones or frozen one it is wiser not to use a knife, but a special cleaver- even the most durable cook tool will not endure such mockery for a long time). Rounded blade is a great assistant for a cook, who is cutting products, with continuous motions up and down.
The cutting edge is responsible for sharpness. The most common, smooth edges is a universal weapon that allows you to clean, cut, chop. Its opposite – serrated blade – clearly distinguishes by work specializations. Firstly, there exists a wide serrater with wavy indentations – hollow ground, laid along the entire length on usually stretched long blade.
High-quality chef’s knife cannot be made by stamping of sheet steel, otherwise it simply will not sustain heavy load. Only forged steel – a result of forging steel by sealing that blade gets the highest strength characteristics.
For chefs knives the steel of the following types is used: pure chrome stainless (adding chromium makes the steel harder), and chromium, molybdenum and vanadium alloy (molybdenum gives the steel a special hardness and vanadium reduces the brittleness). Knives of the second type are more expensive, because their production process is more costly and lengthy.
Traditionally knife handles were made of solid wood – comfortable, stylish, and the hand does not slip. Today, the majority of professional knife handles are made of durable polymer: plastic copes better with aggressive environment, it does not give shelter to microorganisms and provides tighter adjusting of covering to the metal plate parts.
The most important indicator of the knife quality is its appearance. All parts of the high-quality knife – blade, neck, handle – must be perfect, without gaps, adjusted to each other. Equally important is the perfect polishing of the blade, which should be looked through at the light. And, as follows from above the material from which the blade is made matters.
The minimum set for European kitchen – “chef’s trio”, which includes a large chef’s knife length of 45-48 cm, a medium one – of 40-37 cm and 27-30 cm small one. In principle, such an arsenal will cope with all basic cooking operations. Often manufacturers offer ready set of 7-9 knives. But most professionals prefer to collect their “ammunition” on their own, to choose the working tool according to their taste and hand.
For all parents children’s room design has a paramount importance. With a relatively small area, it must be multi-functional, safe, beautiful and modern. Most problematic in the interior of child’s room is to equip a sleeping place. For families, which are raising more than one child, a bunk bed is the ideal solution in a small room, where children grow and evolve.
Configuration, design and dimensions of beds are so diverse that allow you create a unique interior of the kids room. The bunk beds can be used for young children and adolescents, it is important that the chosen model meet the basic criteria.
In the first place out of all the rules of selection of the bed must be safety. If you choose a two-tier bed you must take into account the child’s age.
For young children, it is important to choose a model in which the ‘legs” are quite stable and volume. The sleeping area is barriered by secure-backed bumpers; ladder is firmly attached to the bed with a slope.
The staircase to the second floor must be very solid, with wide steps, to children’s feet may be placed entirely on them and do not slip. Great idea how to make such a staircase as safe as possible and multifunctional – it is to mount drawers for clothes in the steps.
The height of the tiers must also be safe and comply with the child’s growth. The smaller is the child, the lower should be placed a sleeping place. it is necessary to equip the second floor with the protective bumpers.
If the children’s bedroom is a stationary room, separated from the others by wall partitions, or has a large area, the beds can fulfill its intended purpose, their design is not complicated by additional cupboards or drawers.
These models are perfect for travelers with children, hotel rooms, hostels or in family day care centers.
One of the important advantages of these beds is that the cleaning of flooring beneath them can be carried out without difficulty.
However, most often in the same room for the children we have to combine both dressing room, and playing and working areas. In this case, these models are inevitable, in which there are cupboards, shelves and drawers for clothes.
Some designs of bunk beds can be used for three children. On the lower level there is a bed for two, and at the top – for one more kid.
To make a large-sized structure more stable, you can use the rack, while the employee back to bed.
Staircase leading to the upper level, you can do so that it was also a sports equipment – some kind of improvised wall bars.

The history of persian carpets has more than two thousand years. Since ancient times, Iranian masters have been known for their art of creating masterpieces.
Weaving of persian carpets reached its peak in the 16th century, during the reign of the Safavid dynasty. Today, about five hundred items of that period are exhibited in museums around the world, or kept in private collections.
Persian rugs for the uninitiated man are full of contradictions. They can be found everywhere, they are quite practical and unpretentious, but on the other hand, it is a work of art and is quite profitable investment. The carpet, which would unlikely catch your eyes, can cost a fortune and be a true historical value, which age is not less than three hundred years.
Quality of persian carpet is determined not only by its visual appeal, but also by the wearing quality of the product. Most buyers tend to purchase a handmade carpet, that rug can serve to family for four or five generations, but the woven on the machine carpet, will last twenty years or so. To determine the handmade carpet look closely at the underside of the product. The loops are clearly visible from the inside, the carpet is easy to bend and does not break, the ends of the threads are woven into the fabric and not sewn by a stitching machine.
First of all, to tell good from the bad carpets help pattern complex, wool quality, variety of colors and special aspects of netting. In order to determine the quality of wool, experts recommend to do the following: make a paddle with your palms and scrape the surface of the carpet, if a bit of wool has been left on your fingers, a carpet is woven from the wool of average quality, but if the amount of hair on the palm is enough to tie a mitten, you should not even think about buying this carpet. High-quality wool is soft to the touch, smooth and shiny. Good soft wool absorbs dyes much better than poor quality threads, and this in turn determines the color acceptance and brightness of the carpet pattern.
Vintage Persian carpets that, at least, have been made before 1900 were painted with vegetable dyes for wool coloring, later they began to use chrome and “Swiss dye.” Synthetic dyes practically do not change their colors, while vegetable colours are changing over the years and become slightly greenish.
The most difficult task when buying a Persian carpet is the definition of the weaving and weaving features quality. If you think that the same number of nodes on the outside and underside of carpet shows its high quality, you are wrong. Experts consider this characteristic very unrepresentative.
Collectors have little interest in modern products of mass production, but if you buy a carpet for home use while strapped for cash – just buy a new carpet. Today you can buy new persian wool rug that was spinned by hand, and in the production of these carpets the same vegetable dyes were used, which were used thousands of years ago.
Your daughter is no longer a baby, and she needs to build her own room? The task is not easy, but interesting and very important. Girl bedroom must meet several requirements: deep and healthy sleep, safety, creating a good mood, which directly affects the condition of the body, a positive aura for games and activities, as well as the warmth and comfort, because the inner world of a young lady are gradually revealed here.
Color has a great influence on the personal development of every person, particularly the young and growing one. You need to choose the color scheme according to the temperament and psychological type of your girl. It is important that she would be comfortable with the surrounding colors. Better if she would participate in the choice of colors for her room, show her a few design options with different color schemes and let her choose the one that she will like.
So, if parents are taking the process of colors selecting for the room of their girl responsibly, they should carefully study each color, its effects and the combination with other colors.
The most favorable colors for the girl’s room are white, turquoise, green, beige, blue, orange and pink.
White color due to its neutral is a good fit to absolutely any type of temperament, and it is able to enlarge the space visually, whereby the child will feel in this interior comfortably and freely.
Effect of zoning has become increasingly popular in recent years, especially in children’s rooms. This technique allows you to divide the room into two parts: area for sleeping, playing games, or receiving guests, and the classes. For children, it is useful that it teaches them to order and regularity. Zoning can be created softly using the color. That is the area of sleep is to be designed with one color, more calm and relaxing (pale purple, lilac, pink, beige, milky, light brown); for gaming (guest) area to pick up more invigorating and cheerful color (orange, red, green, yellow); and for studies area cold colors fit, cause that will help to focus the mind and keep cool-headedness (blue, white, turquoise).
What should be noted with respect to furniture – that is its comfort and functionality. The size of the bed should fully comply with girl height (it can be a little bigger, but it can’t be smaller). It is better to buy orthopedic mattress. The functionality of the furniture also plays a significant role. If the bed has drawers for storing various things, it significantly saves space of the room itself, it is possible to avoid unnecessary locker or bedside table. For children space is very important.
Wardrobe for girls should be capacious, because young ladies always have a lot of dresses. But it is desirable that it is not too high. For the girl it has to be very easy to get to the top shelves. It is better wider than the above. Built-in sliding door wardrobe will be an excellent alternative.
ideas for gardens
It is better to start with the fact that is clear and known since childhood. Any cottage garden has beds with peonies, roses, asters, where families not only to grow crops, but also get some rest. What would happen if, instead of the usual small flower beds you will design real flower garden? The fact that it does not need any expensive purchases or exotic plants. A bit of the old dishes, furniture, utensils – and a familiar sight will come to life. It is enough to put some soil to any unnecessary container, it immediately becomes a place for the flower bed. The old trough, wooden cart, a broken wheelbarrow, large saucepan full of holes, worn shoes: before disposing of old things you need to think whether they will be useful for the wonderful flower beds?
You cannot move away from the traditional design of flower beds, and decorate it by the fences from any natural material: picket, chocks, stones, artificial stone. A lot of construction debris is left after the construction of the house, pool or bath – it will be useful for edging flower beds too.
Designing unusual flower beds, do not forget about the unity of style, for example, stone edging flowerbeds are smoothly combined with the stone façade.
Traditional method of garden ponds decoration is the use of water – fountains and waterfalls. Nothing can be more natural than the foaming, bubbling intersecting jets and rainbow created by tiny droplets. The owners of sites through which the creek flows are lucky: using artificial thresholds they can arrange a cascade of waterfalls. By the way. This stream is easy to organize, if the house has a system of water supply.
Using different fountain nozzles you can create a small composition of hitting from under the water jets.
Using figures or other items to decorate the pond you need to remember: the more natural garden decoration looks – the better it is for design.
Wood is an affordable and easy to process material. Using modern primers, paints, varnishes, anti-mildew, as well as having sufficient skill and patience, you can create real masterpieces.
Rockery, dry creek, a stone path across the pond – any garden decoration by stones looks appropriate and harmonious. And most importantly, that the design of these compositions you only need imagination and the availability of natural resources. At the mountainous areas it is not a problem to find a scattering of stone, but flat land, unfortunately, would not provide you with available material. In this case, you can buy the stone, as many firms are involved in its sales.
Plastic is a supple and flexible material, so it can be used to create a variety of garden decorations.
