The 5 Strangest Superstition in Sports!
Hello sports fans! It's Friday the 13th! Here are some of the strangest superstitions in sports! Michael Jordan Michael always wore his UNC shorts under his NBA shorts. Thus, he wore longer shorts than his fellow players at that time. In the end however, his fellow players followed suit after the legend. Serena Williams Serena Williams is known for not changing socks once during a tournament. It sucks to wear a pair of socks for more than a day...imagine how it would feel to wear the same socks for an entire tournament! I guess Serena doesn't mind it considering the number of tournaments she has won. Brian Ulracher Brian Ulracher ate two chocolate chip cookies before every game. Maybe that was the secret to his muscular body. I think it'd be fair to call him the "Cookie Monster". Caron Butler Caron Butler was known to be an avid fan of Mountain Dew. He loved the drink so much that he drank before and during every game. During his UNC days, he asked his wife to pick him a 2-L bottle of the green stuff, and drank half of it before the game, and the rest during half-time. In 2007, the Wizards and NBA banned him from drinking it during games so he eventually quit the whole thing in 2009. Moises Alou This one has to be the most f*cked up one out of all of them. Moises Alou used to pee on his own hands to harden them! Should we see that as commitment to the game of baseball or just some pretty weird ass shit? Oh and by the way, don't try to harden your hands by peeing on them ladies and gentlemen, because doctors have confirmed that peeing on your hand doesn't harden them. It actually softens them. @jeff4122 @ButterflyBlu @superiorsl @Starbell808 @DonnaMelton @InPlainSight @jokes @BEAUTYgirlARIEL @David19Flo23 @karencorchado @salahabdalla @Moose892 @BrookieyElba @SamuelRodriguez @ValerieAlissaPa @xitlalicordova1 @AndrewMaldonado @Jovi @Shippudenguy21 @AbdulrahmanSaad @trinityarcangel @thefeels @Link4TW @ChriSingularis @sanazsanaz @WilliamBrown @DannyMoses @ClaySharko @Ravenwing92 @FromBlue2U @TravisBeck @LemissaNicole @BossDominata @gatorchick96 @MatthewBoughton @MarcusJiles @BrandonMcNeil @MalikLawary @KyleBerke @manbungo2000 @DerekGumtow @havic @Straightshooter @PhilAnthony @Kirooken @yaakattackk @RodneyYoung @DreJones @JonathanKerns @bnzattoni @TravisManning @GalacticChakra @smothgreen @afxs @johnnolastname @ChristopherKenn @ChasePage @coreywriley91@MikeWolf @MrTenThirty @JasonNilsson @BrunoDutch @SherzTYC @krishntejanand @addri @ChrisStephens What was your favorite one from the list?

Hoa ngũ sắc trong việc chữa xoang thần kỳ
Từ lâu, trong dân gian, cây hoa ngũ sắc (hay còn gọi là cây hoa cứt lợn) đã được coi là một vị thuốc hay và cực kỳ hiệu quả trong điều trị bệnh viêm xoang với tác dụng chống viêm, chống phù nề, dị ứng trong cả đợt cấp tính và mạn tính. Viêm xoang là một bệnh lý phổ biến ở nước ta với tỷ lệ từ 15% đến 20% dân số bị mắc. Bệnh thường dai dẳng, khó chữa dứt điểm và thường gây ra các biến chứng như viêm thanh quản mạn tính, viêm nề ổ mắt, viêm mí, giảm thị lực, viêm tai giữa… khi không được điều trị kịp thời. >>>Xem thêm: Xịt xoang hoa ngũ sắc Do bệnh thường dai dẳng kéo dài nên để điều trị dứt điểm, người bệnh cần phải kiên trì dùng thuốc trong một thời gian dài, ít nhất là từ 3 đến 6 tháng, có nhiều trường hợp phải điều trị kéo dài tới vài năm. Vì vậy, các bác sỹ chuyên khoa tại mũi họng khuyên rằng: người bệnh nên sử dụng các loại thuốc được bào chế từ cây cỏ tự nhiên để đạt hiệu quả điều trị cao nhất lại an toàn và không có tác dụng phụ. Hoa ngũ sắc là một loại cây nhỏ, thân nhiều lông mềm, cao từ 25cm - 50cm, có hoa nhỏ màu tím và xanh, mọc hoang ở khắp nơi, nhất là ở vùng nông thôn. Theo các nghiên cứu hiện đại, toàn thân cây hoa ngũ sắc có chứa khoảng 0,16% tinh đầu (so với dược liệu khô), hơi sánh đặc, màu vàng nhạt đến vàng nghệ, mùi thơm dễ chịu. Trong tinh dầu có thành phần chủ yếu là ageratocromen, demethoxyageratocromen và precocen I (80%), có tác dụng chống viêm, kháng khuẩn, chống phù nề, dị ứng trong cả đợt xoang cấp tính và mạn tính. >>>Xem thêm: Tác dụng hoa ngũ sắc Hoa ngũ sắc hỗ trợ hiệu quả trong điều trị viêm xoang cấp và mạn tính Bên cạnh tác dụng chống viêm, hoa cứt lợn còn có tác dụng kích thích niêm mạc mũi tăng xuất tiết nên khi dùng, người bệnh thấy rát bỏng toàn bộ niêm mạc mũi. Nhờ vậy, những dịch mủ xanh, vàng còn tồn đọng trong lòng xoang và hốc mũi được thải loại ra ngoài. Ngoài ra, để tăng tác dụng thông mũi và hạn chế độ “xót” khi sử dụng hoa cứt lợn trị viêm xoang, cần kết hợp với hai vị thuốc khác là Tân di và Thương nhĩ tử. Mặt khác, bệnh nhân viêm xoang cũng nên kết hợp phương pháp chữa bệnh: “trong uống, ngoài xoa” để điều trị dứt điểm căn nguyên của bệnh. Điển hình là bài thuốc trong sách Cổ Y Văn - có sử dụng hai vị thuốc quý là Tân di và Thương nhĩ tử tán kết hợp với các thảo dược khác Bạch Chỉ, Cảo Bản, Phòng Phong, Tế Tân.... để hỗ trợ điều trị viêm xoang hiệu quả. Và để tiết kiệm thời gian, công sức trong quá trình điều trị, người bệnh có thể sử dụng các sản phẩm dạng xịt hoặc dạng dung dịch nhỏ mũi và các loại thuốc uống dạng viên nang được bào chế từ các vị thuốc nêu trên. Các dạng bào chế này không chỉ mang đến sự tiện lợi mà còn đảm bảo chất lượng do được sản xuất theo đúng quy trình và tiêu chuẩn chất lượng y tế. Song song với việc sử dụng thuốc, người bệnh cần lưu ý phòng và hỗ trợ điều trị bệnh bằng cách vệ sinh mũi thường xuyên, đeo khẩu trang khi ra đường, tránh tiếp xúc với khói bụi, hóa chất, hạn chế ăn đồ cay, đồ lạnh… >>>Xem thêm: Mỹ phẩm Nàng Duyên

The Woman Who Struck Out Babe Ruth
And Lou Gehrig too. On April 2, 1931 the seventeen year-old Jackie Mitchell struck out Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig back-to-back. They were arguably the deadliest hitting duo in baseball history, and she did it in only seven pitches. Which is pretty damn impressive. Less impressive is what happened afterwards. "They are too delicate. It would kill them to play ball every day." Ruth wasn't the most gracious in defeat (via), and some historians have dismissed the exhibition game as an April Fool's Prank. It's unlikely that Ruth would have been visibly upset if he struck out on purpose, nor would he have asked the umpire to inspect the ball. And a few days later, Mitchell's contract was voided on the basis that baseball was "too strenuous" for women. Yeah, beating some of the most famous players of all time sounds really strenuous. What if she broke a nail?! /sarcasm She kept playing anyway. So clearly the game wasn't TOO strenuous (she died in 1987 at the age of 74). She joined the amateur team House of David in 1933, and retired in 1937. Meanwhile, women weren't formally banned from the MLB until 1952, though unofficially they were often kept off the field. Such was the case for Eleanor Engle, who never took the field. The President of the minor leagues stated that no contract with a woman would be approved because “not in the best interest of baseball that such travesties be tolerated.” In the 1970s girls were allowed to join Little League, in the 80s women joined college baseball, and in the 1990s, Ila Borders joined the St. Paul Saints of the independent Northern League. But no female player has reached the majors (yet). But the 100-year anniversary of the time a teenage girl struck out some of the toughest hitters in baseball history. Maybe it'll happen again in 2031?

According to The CovidSurg Collaborative, a 120-country research initiative formed to analyze the impact of the COVID- 19 pandemic on surgeries, around 28.4 million elective surgeries worldwide will be canceled or postponed in 2020, based on 12 weeks of peak disruption to hospital services due to COVID-19. This collaborative has also estimated that orthopedic procedures will be the most frequently canceled procedures, with 6.3 million orthopedic surgeries canceled worldwide over 12 weeks.  Globally, the incidence of sports injuries has increased over the last few years, primarily due to the growing participation in sports as well as active participation in fitness activities (as a result of the growing focus on leading healthy lifestyles).
