Starting Safely: Positions in American Football Positions are important in every aspect of life, from lying in bed to driving a car. Where one being is in relation to another is extremely vital to the well-being and safety of those involved. In “What is the Safest Sprint Starting Position for American Football Players?,” an expository text about a scientific experiment, authors Bruno Bonnechere, Benoit Beyer, Marcel Rooze, and Jan Serge Van Sint claim that they have isolated the correct position American football players should use when playing. This optimal position is the one most likely to protect the players and prevent any severe head injuries from occurring on the field.
the leg in order to kick the ball. The resting ball ought to continue resting, but after kicking,
Analysis of The Safety of Sprint Starting Positions In “What is the Safest Starting Position for American Football Players?,” scientist’s Bruno Bonnechere, Bennoit Beyer, Marcel Rooze, and Jan Serge Van Sint explain their experiment showing the pro/con ratio for football players who practice with various sprint starting positions, and the “learning
People should be punished for not taking action in a life and death situation. In the article the author, Jay Sterling Silver, believes that civil liability should be established for everyone everywhere. I somewhat agree with his point because it’s the right thing to do but that’s not always the case. During a life and death situation people tend to panic and when they do they start to lose control because they are torn between taking action or calling 911 but it might be too late for that. People will act without precaution in an emergency or some will not act at all because they’re scared they might make the situation worse than what it is.
Introduction: Running, it is the simplest of movements: right foot, left foot, right foot, and the simplest of actions: run, relax, and breathe. Many individuals participate in this form of exercise because they enjoy how good it makes them feel, they enjoy feeling the strength of their body while they run, and they enjoy using it as a way of relieving their stress. There are many other factors to take into consideration that effect a persons running such as, the type of footwear they are using, the distance they are running, and the speed of which they are running at. The objective of the main article was to research and compare the differences in stride length, hip, knee and ankle angles in runners when running two different conditions, shod and barefoot, also while running at two
Real world applications for this experiment focus primarily on competitive games, such as dodgeball, where the aim is to avoid getting hit by a projectile. The experiment showed that the best place to stand to avoid getting hit is near the back of the court while the best place to hit a target from
When it comes to kicking a soccer ball it depends on the force and distance of the kick. A field goal kick will be different from a pass in a combination play. Mental preparation has to be used to be ready for the kick. When kicking a field goal, laces
The reliability of the DJT can be influenced by the means of The researchers chose to use a program called Dartfish 2D Pro Suite Software as a means of gathering their 2D data. The 3D analysis was conducted using a Vicon system. The subjects included sixteen healthy individuals, 9 males and 7 females with ages ranging from 21-30 years old. Before each participant performed the test, a member of the research team demonstrated the drop vertical jump (DVJ) using a 40 cm box. Each participant was given three practice jumps before the test began. Then, each participant had seven trials of the drop jump with less than one minute between each trial. Each trial was recorded with both 3D and 2D analysis. After the Frontal plane projection angle (FPPA), knee to ankle separation ratio (KASR), and knee separation distance (KSD) were measured for each subject based on the video recordings. They concluded that FPPA showed good interrater and intrarater reliability. It was determined that 2D analysis can be used as a cost-effective alternative to 3D analysis. However, of the four 2D techniques, KASR and KSD showed the best results. These two measurements were determined to be reliable, reproducible, and valid when compared with 3D measures. Although, if using 2D analysis, clinicians should be analyzed
Feeling tired in a short span of time or after a hard day’s work, then taking a rest for a while or having a good night's sleep is just the expected routine in regaining strength and energy in our body. If this is not the case for you and felt that after resting, napping or snacking, no longer suffice to give a boost to your energy because it has rather become a prolonged feeling of tiredness, then you must be experiencing fatigue.
A 56-year-old female referred as Mrs. S arrived at Emergency room with acute symptom of severe shortness of breath, dyspnea and complaints of chest pain. Assessment data reveals non-productive cough, weakness, fatigue and hemoptysis. Admitting diagnosis collected by Emergency room revealed pulmonary hypertension secondary to Systemic sclerosis. Mrs. S. has been transferred from Emergency Room to Thoracic floor due to the involvement of her respiratory system. Mrs. S came was received to thoracic unit accompanied by her husband and daughter. Patient appeared unwell, pale and moaning. Dark red spot on face, deformities on finger was also noted. Patient was put on oxygen 8 L via nasal prong and given morphine 2mg via IV prior to data collection. After settling in the room and getting all order by the
Early manifestations of MS are vision, ambulation disturbance, fatigue, and reflex changes. Fatigue is usually noted by the patients. The vision, changes in ambulation, and reflex changes are changes that the provider may notice in the exam; these changes are changes that the patient may not even be notifying yet or that they are not wanting to admit to. Some of these changes may be noticed by the family of close friends of the patient.
Regular consumption of water is something that has always been echoed by medical practitioners. It is just a pity that most people do not heed to professional advice. Instead, they opt to consume less or no water. All medical studies indicate that water is very vital for any human and that is why it must be consumed regularly. It is recommended that you take at least 8 liters of water in a day.
Upon assessment of the patient’s fatigue level when performing various task, the descriptive information provided by the client which was then interpreted into numerical score, suggest she does experience significant fatigue. With score of 57 (mean score = 6.3) which is higher than the cutoff score for chronic fatigue syndrome (55 mean score = 6.1), the results suggest her level of fatigue is characteristic of someone living with chronic fatigue syndrome. On the visual analogue fatigue scale (VAFS) which describe how the patient was feeling at the time of the assessment, the client said she was feeling moderately fatigue (5). These results are subjective as the patient’s cognitive level limited her ability to understand the instructions of
Due to the patient’s cardiac history, I would ask the patient’s onset of her fatigue and how long her fatigue has it been. Fatigue can be a warning sign of heart attack. I would try to find out the time her fatigue occur and worsen. According to Jarvis (2012), decreased cardiac output may cause fatigue and it worsens in the evening. Likewise, I would ask S.P when did she started taking Metoprolol and Aspirin. Many heart and high blood pressure medications can cause fatigue. They may slow down the pumping action of the heart, tone down the nervous system. It seems like S.P is exhibiting signs of Congestive Heart Failure such as: fatigue, 2+ edema of the bilateral ankles, and bilateral lower lobes crackles. A tired feeling and difficulty with
I appreciate the article because it offers background on my question. It shows people have been curious about drawbacks of working too much for more than one-hundred years. Although the study was done very well, I can’t help but to question a few aspects. In subsection 1, it says“lost time through sickness was sometimes attributed to the fatigue following long hours of work” (Pencavel 8). I want to know their process for choosing what was due to excessive work and what got thrown out as “natural sickness.” I also want to know how they could tell the difference between fatigue and working less to maintain the worker’s high pay. Another confounding factor would be that the nation was in a war. How much did patriotism affect the employee’s work
