The Tank

"Tank ready for battle! This baby has a long range cannon and thick armor to boot."

    The Tank is the fifth troop to unlock in the game. It is unlocked at Headquarters level 11.
    The Tank has the slowest movement speed of any troop but has very high health, high DPS per troop (but relatively average DPS per Landing Craft space), and long range.
    Each Tank costs two Gunboat Energy to deploy.

Visual Appearance

    The Tank is a big blue machine with a large cannon and black caterpillar tracks each held up by two large road wheels and two smaller sprocket wheels. It is driven by a red-headed woman in a blue uniform with a small blue garrison cap.

Offensive Strategy

    If used properly, Tanks in large numbers are almost unstoppable.
    Tanks + Medics can be a very effective strategy because the Tanks have high health and high damage, backed up by Medics that will constantly heal them. Once any high-damage defensive buildings, such as Cannons and Boom Cannons, are destroyed, the Tanks are practically invulnerable.
    Grenadiers are also effective with Tanks, as they can destroy front-line Cannons safely. With luck, they can also destroy Boom Mines. However, this strategy is time consuming and may result in a loss because of the limited time.
    Using Tanks requires you to have high-level Artillery and Barrage and a good amount of Gunboat Energy because you rely heavily on both of these to take out Boom Cannons and Cannons.
        When Artillery and Barrages become too expensive, a good way to take out Cannons safely is to Shock Bomb them and then Flare your Tanks to it. The Cannon will be quickly destroyed before it can attack.
        Take advantage of the Tank's long range to destroy economy and support buildings to get the crucial Gunboat Energy you need, making sure to keep out of range of nearby heavy defenses.
    When using a Tank army, use Flares to move away from Boom Mines, or trigger the Boom Mines using Artillery, Barrage or Critters.
    There is usually no need to worry about Cannons on the other side of the Headquarters. The Tanks can easily destroy the Headquarters while staying out of range of the Cannon using their long range.
    Flamethrowers are generally no threat because the Tank's attack range is longer than the Flamethrower's. This allows the Tank to shoot it without the Flamethrower shooting back. Be careful, however, of targeting buildings behind the Flamethrower because your Tanks may move within range of its attack.
        If you have a large amount of Tanks, some may be pushed into its range.
    Your biggest enemy against Tanks is time. They have a very low damage-to-size output, so if the enemy Headquarters is deep enough inside the base you simply may not be able to blow stuff up fast enough to get to it and destroy it before the timer runs out.
    Be careful of high level Shock Launchers. They can slow Tanks down significantly. Several of these defenses may halt an attack altogether.

Defensive Strategy

    High-level Boom Cannons, Cannons, and Sniper Towers can boost your chance of surviving a Tank raid. Keep them somewhat spread out so that they cannot be Shock Bombed together and one Barrage cannot damage all of them.
    Carefully spread out your Boom Mines across your base to ensure that Tanks cannot easily maneuver around them.
    Protect your economy and support buildings as much as possible. Tank armies need the Gunboat Energy they receive from destroying them to power their Barrages and Artillery shells needed to destroy your Boom Cannons and Cannons. Running out of Gunboat energy can quickly spoil the whole attack unless important defenses have already been destroyed.
    Shock Launchers are a vital defense. The long stun time and the Tank's slow speed may lead to an attacker running out of time in an attack.

Upgrade Differences

    There are no visual changes between levels, but each upgrade increases the Tank's hitpoints (by 7.8%), DPS (by 9%), and training cost (by 1,000 gold).


    The Tank was invented during WWI.
    Although the Tank is unlocked at HQ level 11, you can only upgrade Landing Crafts to level 11 at HQ level 11, which has size 15 which is only one short of holding two Tanks, rendering them much less powerful at this level. This discourages many players from using Tanks until they reach HQ level 12.
    It is very strange that the tank only has one crew member or appears to only fit one member, as tanks require at least two men to operate.

investigating a treatment for cellulite

Paul, Let’s start out today’s interview with an explanation of what an anatomist is?

Sure. An anatomist studies the human body, which in recent years has included the study of the body on a cellular level. Most anatomists teach, research, or do both. Personally, I do teach, but I am more dedicated to research and the treatment of patients.

What inspired you to begin investigating a treatment for cellulite?

In 2007, a patient in her 30’s and of athletic build while in for an ACL repair questioned: “I work out, eat right, I’m not heavy, and I’ve had severe cellulite for 15 years. You have advanced degrees in anatomy, what can be done?”
Over my 38 years of practice, I’ve had many female patients ask about cellulite, and in conversing with colleagues from different areas of the medical community, I know they share similar stories.
I’m an avid researcher, (check out my profile on Research Gate) and I couldn’t shake this woman’s question. It was literally keeping me up at night. There had to be a way. I consulted with board-certified plastic surgeons that I know and respect, and according to them, there were no effective treatments available at the time. They also confirmed that this was a common question from female patients.
So, I set about to research and evaluate all of the literature for reasons why women get cellulite and then for ways to reduce cellulite

What was the goal of your research?

To help. I felt bad, and, to be frank, puzzled that there wasn’t a simple solution to this apparently common issue that really bothers some women.
Once I felt that I had studied all the credible research available and I understood what the scientific community currently knew about cellulite, it was time to find a solution.
My goal was to design a safe and effective way to help reduce the appearance of cellulite. An in-home process that women would find easy to use and was non-invasive.

What is the best waist trainer for me?

Shopping for a waist trainer can seem pretty complicated! Its hard to know what size you are and what cincher is perfect for what your needs are.
 we want this process to be as easy as possible. Shopping shouldn't be confusing!
Lets start off with sizing! Having the right size cincher is very important. If your cincher is too small it could be very uncomfortable and if your waist cincher is too loose it really wont be doing anything for you. The best way to figure out what size you are is by getting an accurate measurement of your waist in inches. Grab a tape measure and wrap it around the natural waist line (for most people this is a couple inches above the navel). Then take this number and compare it to the size chart we have provided for the item you are interested in.  Do not try to order a size that is smaller that what you need, these items are already high compression.
What style do you need?
Before deciding this you need to ask yourself what you will be wearing your cincher for. Will you be wearing it throughout the day? Will you just be wearing it to the gym?

clash of clans


Clash of Clans is a popular iPad/iPhone/iPod/Android game created by "Supercell". It has been available internationally on the iTunes store for free since its initial v1.7 release on 2 August 2012, and on the Google Play Store since 8 October 2013. From rage-filled Barbarians with glorious mustaches to pyromaniac Wizards, raise your own army and lead your clan to victory! Build your village to fend off raiders, battle against millions of players worldwide, and forge a powerful clan with others to destroy enemy clans. Although Clash of Clans is free to download and play, additional in-game currency can be purchased for real money from the Apple App Store/Google Play Store in the form of In-App Purchases. However, all features of the game are open to players who choose not to make In-App Purchases. If you don't want to use this feature, please disable In-App Purchases in your device's settings. Clash of Clans is available on iOS and Android devices!

In Clash of Clans, having a strong defense is as important as having a capable offense. In many ways, defense is even more important. Defenses serve to safeguard trophies and protect resources from enemy troops. Each defense has its own strengths and weaknesses, and its location in your village should reflect that. For instance, the powerful Mortar is slow-firing, but deals incredible splash damage to ground troops. A downside is that it can't attack troops within four tiles of itself (or air troops at all) - so it should be placed in the center of your village with adequate protection from Air Defenses. On the other hand, Cannons and Archer Towers deal lesser amounts of damage to groups (as they can target and hit only one unit at a time) but attack quicker and work as an effective first line of defense. The Wizard Tower deals incredible splash damage to both ground and air units, but has a relatively short range.
