Essentially, the basis of this video was for them to successfully flip a water bottle and have it land upright on a tricky surface.

My first exposure to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) was the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge that became very popular on social media.

The victims then get to challenge three more people. I recall being challenged by a friend and experiencing a bucket of ice water rushing through my body and causing it to numb. After experiencing what it feels like to have ALS for a short moment, I was inspired to write this research project.
The National Hockey League has a problem, but it’s not the one you think it is. For decades, a group of contemptible, no-guts, cowardly momma’s boys have been trying to eradicate one of the more integral and important parts of the sport: Fighting. Since 1922, the NHL has wisely allowed bare-knuckle fighting. This has had many benefits over the years. For starters, it’s given employment to hundreds of players who couldn’t otherwise make an NHL roster, except for the fact that they can beat a guy senseless.

“As I was moving the bone some of the marrow must have escaped into his blood stream and gone directly to his heart and stopped it, “ (193). The author’s incorporation of Phineas dying this way aids in showing Gene’s betrayal of Phineas. Prior to Phineas’s death, he and Gene had been fighting much more than they normally did, and Phineas ended up telling Gene he was upset that he couldn’t participate in the war due to his leg. Gene feels bad because he is uncertain about whether or not Phineas’s first fall was his fault, and ultimately, it was the first fall that caused Phineas to die.

This should make us push through our hard times for what we know we can get through, other than picking the unknown. Another article was, Robert Eberts: The Essential Man, by Chris Jones.

Although initially valid, the study soon became twisted, and for many years remained a veiled, dark secret of the Public Health Service and the Tuskegee Institute. After forty years of malpractice, its details eventually became public knowledge, leading to the program 's shutting down shortly after these details were published. Later, patients and patient relatives successfully sued for monetary damages, as well as lasting benefits. It remains a critical exemplification of medical misconduct and blatant misuse of medical science.

The coach of this team have been to have told the kids to hit with their head and not shoulder. I don't know if the coach was uneducated or just incompetent but either way we it shows we need to educate more people on concussion prevention.

In Philadelphia 1973 early August, a robust and fatal disease had emerged through the garbaged pavement roads and city ‘sinks’. Dr. Hugh Hodge was one of the first to encounter the deadly disease, and it taking the life of his daughter days before meeting with a new patient with the same grotesque symptoms. Hugh and his colleague Dr. John Foulke cautiously cared for Catherine LeMaigre, reciting and reviewing previous documents that would provide treatments for such a harmful, painful disease. The tactics both the Doctor’s had used didn’t help with Catherine’s well being, and thus astonishing them since they haven’t ever seen prestigious methods shot down. Dr. Benjamin Rush, a well respected man and founding father of the United States, had rushed to the news of Catherine, and then decided the fatal disease was Yellow Fever.
An online survey of 1,000 people conducted by ESPN in Northern California of early August did find that 57 percent of parents said the concussion problem made them less likely to let their sons play in youth leagues (Emmons, 2012). Over 3,200 retired NFL players have sued the NFL over the long-term effects of their head trauma days.

Studies show that concussions represent almost 9 percent of injuries in nine major high school sports. Although football is a rather violent sport it can still be while relatively safe when coached and monitored properly.
