Physical sports can sometimes be quite dangerous. Especially concussions, Concussion is a temporary loss of brain function typically resulting from a relatively mild injury to the brain, not necessarily associated with unconsciousness. The problem of concussions is it happens to often. I say physical sports make rules protecting you from concussion. This is important because Concussions can sometimes result in long-term injuries.
Purpose: The purpose of the experiment was to understand how strong a bessbug by using weights and observing the time the best bug takes to travel to a certain distance. Background Information: The horned Passalus; also known as the Bess Beetle, is widely known beetle that is easily recognized. The Bessbug is a shiny black insect with a hard shell. The bess beetle lives in damp rotten wood, which also serves as their source of food. Bess beetles can lift up to 100 times its weight.
He had symptoms right away, but stayed in the game. Four days later he went to a doctor complaining of headaches. They did tests and everything appeared normal. He was told to wait to play until symptoms went away. He did not listen to the advice given.
Football should be banned in the United States because it can lead to a concussion, can cause brain damage, and can even kill you. When anyone plays football whether it’s professional, college, or high school you can get a concussion. A concussion is also known as traumatic brain injury(TBI), a concussion is caused by the violent movement or jarring the head or neck. Most cases of brain injury are concussions. People who suffer from concussions generally fully recover fast.
These features made Beelzebufo capable of killing lizards and other small animals, perhaps even hatchling dinosaurs.By comparison, the largest living frog today is the goliath frog of West Africa, which can be 12.5 inches (31.7 centimeters) long and weigh about 7.2 pounds (3.2 kilograms). The largest frog alive on Madagascar today is just over four inches (10.1
What is the most damaging is a few concussions and many sub-concussive hits. These are blows to the head where an athlete may experience just one or even no concussion symptoms. They seem insignificant and many have no immediate effect, but over time the build upon each other. These blows combined with concussions cause life altering diseases such as CTE, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s. Many people are familiar with Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s, you probably know someone who suffers from these diseases.
This means they are reproducing five times faster than when they were a puppy (I say five times more because, it has to have a mom and a dad). According to facts-about-dogs.info, their litter size is around ten puppies. There is also the fact, that Pit Bulls are extremely unpredictable. They can snap at any time. Yes, even on their owners.
The reason we are writing to you is because we are concerned for the athletes who could get a concussion. Even though concussions are not often fatal, but CTE are very dangerous. The most complicated situation is when a concussion occurs more often to the victim. Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) CTE, also known as chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a new type of
“CTE is a progressive degenerative disease of the brain found in athletes (and others) with a history of repetitive brain trauma” (BU “What is CTE”) This has been especially found in athletes linked to football and boxing with a long history of concussions. However CTE cannot be diagnosed until death, so players will never know they had it. The other reason for the publicity of concussions is SIS. Second Impact Syndrome is if a player has been injured and they sustain a second, even mild, blow to the head. “(SIS) occurs when a person with a concussion, even a very mild one, suffers a second blow before fully recovering from the first.
In the past, the NFL had denied any link between head trauma and football before a case had even been identified. Recently, the NFL admitted to the connection between CTE and football. The realization developed gradually, as these injuries had become more common throughout the years, causing more long-term issues in the players’ lives. According to The New York Times, Greg Aiello, a spokesman for the league, had claimed: “It’s quite obvious from the medical research that’s been done that concussions can lead to long-term problems” (Belson NP). Numerous lawsuits have been filed against the NFL due to no actions being taken in regards to the repetitive cases of head trauma.
Concussion are created as a result of the brain being slammed against the skull. This can cause inability to think clearly, sleeping more than usual, easily upset, nausea & vomiting. After receiving a concussion it is extremely important to get lots of rest so the brain may have time to repair the injuries it has sustained. Head trauma would be treated similar to how a concussion would be handled. Whether it’s a concussion or head trauma it’s important to go to the doctors & have them confirm there is no serious injuries to the brain.
Concussions are caused by a blow to the head or by heavy shaking of the head or upper body. Inertia causes the brain to move relative to the skull. The impacts impair the brain 's ability to function. Symptoms include, but are not limited to: headache, loss of consciousness, confusion, dizziness, nausea, vomiting and slurred speech. Numerous symptoms are also not noticeable immediately and may appear even days after the injury.
Due to the lack of proper concussion screening equipment it is hard to truly know if someone has a concussion. My friend Tyler had a near death experience due to being misdiagnosed with not having a concussion. The doctors gave him a CT Scan and a MRI and they showed that he did not have a concussion. Tyler would almost die because of this wrong diagnosis. According to The Eisen Law Firm, if a player does not pass out after suffering from a major blow, most coaches and medical staff will not diagnose that athlete with a concussion (Firm).
University Press P.148). The Howler Monkey is said to have gotten their name from their “Cacophonous Cries”. These Cries can be heard from up to three miles away. (Wikipedia.com) The Howler Monkey Uses these loud Cries for other monkeys to hear during mating season. Not only do the Howler Monkeys have Cries that can be heard from three miles away, they also have a Dynamic nose that can smell their food from as far as (2km) away.
There has been an abundance of controversy over recovery time for athletes who suffered dangerous concussions. Many would argue that there is enough safety in the helmets and medical personnel, but if head injuries, more specifically concussions, are linked to permanent brain damage, athletes should be required to sit out long enough for the brain to completely heal. Brain injury can have a serious negative impact on performance and repeated trauma can have fatal results. The brain is a very delicate computer running the program that is you. When you bash it against a wall it starts to glitch up.
