Transition: First, I want to talk about the equipment used in the game of bowling.
Wikipedia gives us following definition of a bowling ball: “A bowling ball is a piece of sporting equipment used to hit bowling pins in the sport of bowling. Ten-pin bowling balls are typically hard spheres with three holes drilled in them, one each for the ring and middle fingers, and one for the thumb.”
Cricket has always been a game dominated by batsmen and producing good bowlers is always a challenge, specifically spin bowlers. Spin bowling, that noble art of googlies, flippers, top spinners with the ball hissing from one direction to the other is more difficult than running in full steam a la Shoaib Akthar. The former is more about deceiving batsman with variations, loop and the dip rather than terrorizing the batsman with pace. Conventional wisdom sees spin bowling as an arrow which must be taken out of the quiver either in the dustbowls of the sub-continent or to contain the batsman. However, we are now seeing a change: captains have started recognizing spin bowling as more of a wicket taking option; the pitches are no longer 22 yards of concrete, rendering the contest between bat and ball a one-sided affair. Competitive pitches have started yielding results which has brought all the options into the game. Spin bowling by Indians over the last year and a half has far outstripped the ordinary fare we have witnessed over the last 4-5 years.
In order to create such a thought provoking experience Moore puts footage of different shots together in order to get the viewers mind wondering on different pathways of possible reasons for America’s violence issue. For instance, the footage of the crashing of the twin towers and the Kosovo bombings were played right after one another. Nobody would have thought about those two situations having a connection before viewing Bowling. Moore really gets deep into his viewer’s hearts and almost physically opens their eyes to see possible relationships between the unimaginable. A good aspect to any film is the power to motivate and to take people on a ride they’ll never forget. The montages of different occurrences throughout Moore’s film expand your mind and take you on a life time experience.
The one thing that interests me is bowling. I have been playing all my life and after a whole semester and a half of being in Mr. Fetter’s class, I realized that everything has physics in it. One night after going bowling with my girlfriend(s) I wondered why when I hit the first pin, only seven went down and thus I lost the game. So, I got on the Internet and found a lot of articles and web sites talking about the physics of bowling. A lot of the web sites were brief descriptions. A guy named Paul Durbin wrote many articles on physics. One of his articles he discussed was about bowling. He mentioned one thing we already went over this semester in physics class. But it seems to me that he neglected to mention other forces the play a big role in bowling and the physics behind it.

During the 1930’s and until the war, Birmingham bowling, like most activities, was centralized in the downtown area - between 2nd and 5th Avenues North. Bowling Houses, in addition to Phoenix - in alphabetical order - were: Downtown (Birmingham) Bowling Lanes, Liberty Bowling Alley and Lucky Strike Lanes.

Exergaming, which is also known as exercise games or fitness games, refers to a special type of video games that involve physical training. In other words, exergaming enables people to do sport in their own living rooms. Moreover, you can do everything you want: dancing, boxing, biking, racing, hiking, and so forth. Although it may be hard to get fit using only exergaming (not impossible though), in view of its unique advantages, such kind of training is irreplaceable when it comes to reducing obesity levels, children who prefer a computer to physical activity, and elderly who need to move.
