Best Basketball Shoes of 2013
What gets your vote? Converse's authentic Chuck Taylor All Stars was the first brand of basketball shoe to dominate the game. Coming to prominence in the 1930s, Converse's classic high-top designed to support the ankles for jumping high set the standard for other reputable manufacturers. Companies copied or competed with the best-selling brand, coming up with new trends and technology, but the original high-tops remained on top. In the 1970s Nike dunked their name in the basketball industry with their new Blazer, the shoe with the "swoosh", as did Puma with their signature low-top shoes. In the mid-to-late 70s Converse shot back with their new Weapons worn by Magic Johnson and Larry Bird. The 1980s saw some new Nike technology with the introduction of the Air Force 1 and its legendary "air sole" with its classic leather design. In the mid-1980s and the early 1990s rookie Michael Jordan gave different brands a name in the basketball industry, starting with his "too colorful" signature warm-ups that wound up banned from the court. What followed was Adidas' Ewings, which broke away from the giant manufacturer to stand on its own two feet, simply calling itself "The Ewings". Jordan began to put his own name on basketball shoes, the Air Jordan series. The next decade launched the Original Pump creating a rival between top-selling manufactures competing for best-selling models. But Air Jordan kept its position at the top while other manufactures experimented with all sorts of trendy bells and whistles designs and innovative technologies, but the bottom line remained under Jordan's feet. What some critics call "the Golden Era" of basketball (1994-98) turned out to be a time of experiment with alternatives from what the world had grown accustomed to. During this time, it was 'everything goes'. New high tech designs using newer materials gave just about every manufacturer a chance to shine. With the dawn of a new century of basketball, the name of the game was "retro". Shy of any new superstars setting new standards, manufacturers reverted to classic models. Labels experienced a lull, and the Air Jordan series was back. As were other manufactures. The biggest innovation of the new era may well have been the Shox BB4 made popular by star Vince Carter's seven-foot jump during the 2000 Olympics. That launched a new revival among rival manufacturers for newer, better technologies. Converse stays in the shoe game but is now owned by Nike. Just where basketball shoes will run with the superstars next, remains to be seen. -Epic Sports Basketball

Die DNA ist der Bauplan des Lebens, und die Nukleotide sind die Bausteine der Doppelhelix. Nukleotide bestehen aus einer stickstoffhaltigen Base (normalerweise Adenin, Thymin, Cytosin, Guanin oder Desoxyribose) und einer bis drei Phosphatgruppen. DIE QUELLE DER NUKLEOTIDEN Nukleotide können vom Körper de novo aus einigen Aminosäuren synthetisiert werden, zum Beispiel aus Glutamin, Aspartat, Glycin und Formiat6 Nukleotide, Nukleoside, Nukleinsäuren, Basen und Desoxyribose können auch aus dem.

An Ever-Growing Dilemma: Traumatic Brain Injury in Football
Image source: pexels Football is a beloved sport for many Americans. It is full of excitement, passion, and competition. Unfortunately, the game has an ever-growing dilemma that is increasingly difficult to ignore - traumatic brain injury (TBI). Recent studies have revealed the long-term health consequences associated with playing football, including chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). For this reason, players need education on the potential forms of brain injury and at what stage they need a traumatic brain injury lawyer to prove the severity of brain injury. This blog post explores the realities of traumatic brain injury in football from its prevalence among all levels of play to potential solutions for reducing head trauma. We will also discuss why understanding traumatic brain injury laws should be a priority for everyone involved in football whether as a participant or fan. What is traumatic brain injury? Traumatic brain injury is a type of brain injury that occurs when an external force causes damage to the brain. Traumatic brain injury can happen when the head unexpectedly and violently hits an object. It is also prevalent when an object penetrates the skull and enters brain tissue. Symptoms of traumatic brain injury can vary greatly, depending on the severity of the injury. Mild symptoms may include a temporary loss of consciousness or confusion. It can also be severe, such as coma or amnesia. In some cases, traumatic brain injury can lead to long-term problems with cognition, movement, sensation, or emotions. Treatment for traumatic brain injury varies based on the severity of the injury. For milder injuries, rest and over-the-counter pain medications may be all that is needed. However, more severe injuries may require hospitalization and intensive rehabilitation for the individual. There is no definitive answer to preventing traumatic brain injury in football players. Some suggest a change of rules to the sport. For example, banning tackling in practice or banning certain types of hits during games may help reduce the risk of TBI. Others believe that improved equipment design, such as better helmets that better protect the head from impact, may also help reduce the risk of traumatic brain injury. That is why it is important to know some traumatic brain injury laws to find what is truly permitted in the sport and when you might need to consult a personal injury lawyer. Traumatic Brain Injury Laws The case of a traumatic brain injury may form the basis of a legal inquiry. This is applicable in cases where the actions or inactions of one party cause another to sustain a brain injury. Legal inquiries can proceed based on the following theoretical laws, these may include: A case of negligence Medical malpractice Assault Trip and fall All of the aforementioned above may necessitate legal action. For instance, in the case of trip and fall or slip and fall, such cases may occur from uneven floors, clustered walking surfaces, or inadequate lighting. In any case, alongside medical personnel, you need the expertise of a traumatic brain injury lawyer to ascertain the causation of the accident. This ensures all medical records, facts, and evidence of your brain injury are well covered so you can focus on recovery. The Dangers of Traumatic Brain Injury Football as a sport traditionally values toughness, and this often results in collisions between players. As the number of reported concussions in football continues to rise, so does the concern over the long-term effects of traumatic brain injury. TBI can lead to a wide range of problems, including: Memory loss Depression Anxiety Problems with coordination and balance In severe cases, it can even lead to dementia or death. There are a variety of factors that can contribute to the severity of a traumatic brain injury. Many of which include the force of the impact and the angle at which the head is hit. This determines whether or not the person loses consciousness. Repeated head trauma is another major factor, as it can lead to cumulative damage. It is impossible to eliminate the risk of traumatic brain injury in football. But some measures can be taken to reduce its occurrence. These include: Better helmets and mouthguards Stricter return-to-play guidelines More comprehensive sideline concussion protocols The long-term effects of traumatic brain injury are also disconcerting. Studies have linked TBI with an increased risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. Other research has suggested that TBI may contribute to the development of Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE). CTE is a degenerative brain condition that has been found in many former football players. The potential consequences of suffering a TBI are serious enough that every effort should be made to reduce the risk of injury. This starts with proper training and equipment for all levels of play from youth leagues to the professional ranks. It also includes adopting rule changes aimed at reducing contact between players, for example, banning or limiting certain types of contact. How to Prevent Traumatic Brain Injury? The best way to prevent traumatic brain injury is to avoid head trauma. This can be done by wearing properly fitting protective equipment, such as helmets and mouthguards during all sports and recreational activities. Some steps can be taken to reduce the risk of traumatic brain injury if head trauma does occur. For example, prompt medical attention can help to ensure that any resulting swelling or bleeding is quickly controlled. In addition, rehabilitation and cognitive therapies can help those who have suffered a TBI to regain some or all of their previous functioning. Conclusion Traumatic brain injury in football is a growing dilemma that cannot be ignored. Even with all of the advances in safety protocols, athletes and their families remain at risk as long as they participate in contact sports such as football. It is essential for everyone involved from parents to coaches to medical personnel to take steps to ensure that player safety remains paramount. No one else has to suffer an injury due to negligence or ignorance. We must keep searching for ways to protect our athletes and make sure that this ever-growing dilemma does not go unresolved.
College Rugby: Its Not Just About The Beer, But There Is Beer
When I stumbled into the involvement fair as a wee little freshmen I was there to sign up me and my new best friend (who I knew for a total of 3 days thus far) for Ski Club. I must have gotten a bit turned around because, by the time I got back to the dorm and walked into Ayanas room I told her I signed us both up for Rugby instead. "What?" I asked as she stared at me in shock. "They said we didn't need to know how to play and they wouldn't yell at us. "Also practice is monday-friday and starts tomorrow byeeeeeeeeeeee", and with that, we were on the team. And I think it is safe to say that Rugby should pretty much be a requirement for any girl who likes to have fun. You will meet the best friends ever playing Rugby. No one quite understands the struggles of a rugby girl, except another rugby girl. I have laughed, cried, thrown up and thought about dying, all in just one rugby game. And the girls were right there with me. We're a crowd who thinks bruises make us a lot sexier then push up bras and we have each others backs no matter what. Also blood does not faze us. Who gives a shit about body shaming Rugby girls get the a terrible rap. People always think of them as fat, ugly, or brick walls. Which is why its awesome to roll up wit a party looking super fit, super hot and ready to drink all the haters under the table. Female rugby players gotta stick together. And we do. So the body shaming ends the second you get into your rugby lifestyle (and it is a lifestyle). Get ready to be showed with support about how strong and amazing you are. You develop a dedication Its hard to stick with something, especially when it eats up every waking moment of your life. You fit practice around work and class, then your games are all day Saturday which makes Friday team bonding and carb loading. You may wonder why you are bothering when yore awake at 5:30 AM for an away game but the second you see your teammates, you'll get hype as fuck to mess people up. You learn ways to kick the shit outta anyone Rugby girls are a rowdy bunch. Not only do we have to deal with getting kick in the face almost every day at practice, we also have to deal with the male rugby team. No matter what happens, you will be able to stand up for yourself. Bar fights, street harassment or just plan assholes, gone are the days where you will be the meek girls standing in the corner. Rugby teaches you that you do need to have balls to have balls. I learned how to fucking Party You may think you know how to drink buttttt you don't. Your first drink up (aka getting drunk after a game) you leaned how to shoot the boot (both a glass and a shoe), win boat races and funnel full bottles of wine. I would say more but....you have to join to find out.
[Jump-Ahead January] Sports in March
* [Jump-Ahead January] is a site-wide event held by the moderators to look ahead of the year and look at some of the things to look forward to in each of our communities! You can check out the general announcement card here ---> Announcing Jump Ahead January! [JJ] and you can check out the announcement card for the Sports community here ---> [Jump-Ahead January] Sports! Up second for Jump-Ahead January is March! And what's the first thing that comes to mind for Sports fans in March? MARCH MADNESS! Well to be honest, I wasn't interested in college basketball, until I started attending college that happened to have a decent basketball team, the Georgetown Hoyas. And I will try to stray away from calling Georgetown one of the best (but we were back in the 80s), but that's basically how I started following college basketball and eventually dedicate my March to the NCAA Men's Division I Championship. Last year's champ was Duke and I'm pretty sure @TravisVeck had a blast! And this year, starting on March 15th, 68 Division I schools will compete once again in the single-elimination tournament that we have come to call "March Madness". My hopes aren't high for the Georgetown Hoyas, but I just wish they would play at least three games before having to go home. I mean they did just beat #5 Xavier Musketeers 81-72 on the road! Ha! I bet sports fans are excited at the thought of filling one of these very soon! So here it is, my second card for the event Jump-Ahead January!
