Mankinds Greatest Rival Is Mankind

Compete with each other, that Darwin s struggle for existence is between dinosaurs and mammals, or between rabbits and foxes, or between men and neanderthals. We borrow the imagery of nation-states and football teams Germany against France, the home team against its rivals.

Effects Of Chromium Supplementation On Human Body Composition And Physical Functions

Evans 7 reported the first study of Cr(pic)3 supplementation 200 gCr(III) and strength training in athletes. Forty-two collegiate football players participated, but only 31 completed the study. Baseline body weight and composition data were not reported. Body fatness (2.7 vs 0.5 ) decreased significantly and lean body mass Forty male football players participated in another double-blind supplementation study in which Cr(III) (200 g day as Cr(pic)3) and placebo were the treatments 14 . All subjects participated in a 9-week supervised off-season training program, including intensive weightlifting (4 days week) and running (2 days week) sessions. Thirty-six men completed all aspects of the study. Urinary Cr(III) excretion increased five-fold among the men supplemented with Cr(pic)3. Body composition improved with training in both treatment groups with no significant effect of Cr(III) supplementation on gain of muscle mass. Surprisingly, strength did not change significantly after...

The Team Approach to Leadership and Its Reliance on Emotional Intelligence

In a seminar several years ago, the observation was made that many sports-related analogies are used to describe workplace activities. Phrases such as coaching, dropping the ball, pinch hitting, and running interference were, anecdotally, said to be used frequently in the business world to describe common interactions between colleagues. The use of these terms was said to imply that the business world was in many ways like a playing field, with players competing and interacting in the game of business as they would in a football or baseball confrontation, playing by specific rules that govern the game.

Recruitment of Scientific Talent

The traditional method of fleshing out scientific talent in this country has been through local, regional, state, and national science fairs and competitions. Beginning in 1942, the most prestigious national competition was organized by the nonprofit organization Science Service and underwritten by the Westing-house Corporation. The Science Talent Search has been the country's premier channel through which young scientific talent has been recognized and recruited. Until 1998, when Intel Corporation took over sponsorship, the competition more commonly became known as the Westinghouse. The charge of Science Service was and still is to popularize science and make scientific information more accessible to the public. Among others, Joseph Berger, an education writer for the New York Times, has written a book, entitled The Young Scientists America's Future and the Winning of the Westinghouse, about this talent search. As Berger writes From the start, the Westinghouse was different from a...

Human Behavioral Commonality

Both of these categories of evolved altruism probably underlie many human emotions and behaviors that find exaggerated and elaborated expression in the modern world. Allegiances may be to football teams, nations, or global religions as well as to family units. The anticipated rewards may be the Super Bowl, medals of honor

Sports Medicine Being A Team Physician

Many aspiring orthopedic surgeons are excited by the prospect of caring for professional athletes. To achieve this dream, you must successfully make it through orthopedic residency training, followed by a sports medicine fellowship that includes care of a professional team, such as one of the members of the National Football League (NFL). Although the job of a professional team physician looks fairly glamorous from the outside, it is usually hard and stressful work. Dealing with owners, agents, players, and the media and balancing the needs of everyone involved can be very difficult. In today's litigious environment, malpractice premiums have skyrocketed for professional team physicians. Because they deal with players making millions of dollars, the potential monetary reward for a malpractice claim often exceeds the maximum limits of an orthopedic surgeon's insurance policy. There is also a growing trend among professional athletes of traveling to outside sports medicine centers for...

The Beautiful the Difficult and the Costly

This fitness indicator theory helps us to understand why art is an honorific term that connotes superiority, exclusive-ness, and high achievement. When mathematicians talk about the art of theorem-proving, they are recognizing that good theorems are often beautiful theorems, and beautiful theorems are often the products of minds with high fitness. It is a claim for the social and sexual status of their favorite display medium. Likewise for the arts of warfare, chess, football, cooking, gardening, teaching, and sex itself. In each case, art implies that application of skill beyond the pragmatically necessary. Anyone who wishes to imply superiority in their particular line of work is apt to style themselves an artist. The imperatives of fitness display allow us to understand the passion with which people debate whether something is or is not an art. A claim that one's work is art is a claim for sexual and social status.

Routinely Take Precautions to Protect Your Brain

Whenever you engage in an activity that introduces the potential for head injury, use appropriate protective gear. Far and away, the most common cause of brain injury is a motor vehicle accident failure to use a seat belt significantly increases the risk of serious injury. Participation in recreational sports and contact athletics also requires taking routine precautions. This means wearing a helmet when motorcycling, bicycling, in-line skating, rock climbing, hang gliding, and skiing. Helmets and mouth guards are essential for contact sports, such as football and ice hockey. A mouth guard reduces the risk of concussive injury in contact sports by deflecting forces from a blow to the chin or jaw that would otherwise reach the skull base. Mouth guards should also be used when playing soccer, basketball, and rugby or when engaging in martial arts, boxing, and wrestling.

Why Do we Need a Theory of Consciousness

It is useful to compare lists of those brain activities that are always unconscious (obligate unconscious), brain activities that may or may not be performed consciously (facultative conscious) and those activities that are always accompanied by awareness (obligate conscious, Table 12.1). Examination of the list highlights several interesting features. Firstly, there is clearly a tendency for the more primitive activities - those we share with lower animals and even plants - to be performed unconsciously and the more specialist activity - the strictly human actions, like use of language - to be accompanied by awareness. Why should this be A straightforward explanation based on complexity - the more complex the information processing going on in the brain the more likely it is to be conscious - doesn't work. Imagine driving, alone in your car, along a familiar route. Your conscious brain may be reviewing the day's activities, planning an evening's entertainment or considering the...

The Construction Corollary

Expectations of the next football game on our experiences of previous ones, of the next concert by previous ones, and so on. Events, more or less similar, occur repeatedly, and our plans for the future are based on the lessons of the past. Of course, there is always some difference. Events do not repeat themselves exactly. Nonetheless, adaptation would be impossible if we did not identify sufficient similarity among events to allow prediction of the future. We accomplish this by applying constructs to various events.

Sports as Fitness Indicators

This discussion of bodily condition brings us to our first example of a human mental ability that evolved through sexual selection the capacity for sports. The ability to invent and appreciate new ways of displaying physical fitness is a distinctly human ability. The ritualized behaviors evolved by other animals to intimidate sexual rivals and attract mates almost always include costly, hard-to-fake indicators of physical condition. Male red deer roar at each other as loud as they can, showing off their size and energy. Usually, the weaker, quieter one gives up quickly. But sometimes the two are so closely matched that they roar for hours until endurance rather than strength decides the contest. As in other species, male humans participate much more often in competitive sports than females. But every human culture invents different sports. We inherit the physical capacities and motivations to learn sports, not the specific genes for football, siding, or boxing. the game is...

Trivalent Chromium Supplementation Syndrome X And Weight Loss

Further research using chromium picolinate demonstrated its effects on body composition in athletes. In a double-blind study, the effects of daily chromium supplementation (200 g elemental chromium as chromium picolinate) were investigated in football players during spring training for 9 weeks 62 . Subjects receiving chromium picolinate demonstrated urinary chromium losses five times greater than those in the placebo group. Chromium picolinate supplementation was ineffective in bringing about changes in body composition or strength during a program of intensive weight-lifting training 62 . In another double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study, the effects of 14 week of chromium picolinate supplementation during preseason resistance and conditioning program on body composition and neuromuscular performance in NCAA Division I wrestlers were assessed 63 . Twenty wrestlers from the University of Oklahoma was assigned to either a treatment group (n 7 20.4 years 0.1) receiving 200 g...

How Does Epilepsy Affect Daily Life

The risk of seizures also restricts people's recreational choices. For instance, people with epilepsy should not participate in sports such as skydiving or motor racing where a moment's inattention could lead to injury. Other activities, such as swimming and sailing, should be done only with precautions and or supervision. However, jogging, football, and many other sports are reasonably safe for a person with epilepsy. Studies to date have not shown any increase in seizures due to sports, although these studies have not focused on any activity in particular. There is some evidence that regular exercise may even improve seizure control in some people. Sports are often such a positive factor in life that it is best for the person to participate, although the person with epilepsy and the coach or other leader should take appropriate safety precautions. It is important to take steps to avoid potential sports-related problems such as dehydration, overexertion, and hypoglycemia, as these...

The Story

I had had pain in my lower teeth on vigorous exertion for many years. I recall that even playing touch football twenty years ago had brought it on. So when I noticed it again, I didn't pay much attention to it. It's simply more of the same, I thought, unlikely to be of consequence.


A good way to understand how something at one level can be random but at another lower level completely determined is in the tossing of a coin before a football game. The home captain tosses the coin into the air and the opposition captain calls. From the perspective of both captains, as the coin is spinning in the air, whether the coin ends up heads or tails is totally up to chance. Half the time it will be heads and half the time tails, and that is all both captains know. If, however, the opposition captain was possessed with extraordinary powers of perception and mathematical ability, they could work out the rate of spinning, gravitational pull, air resistance, wind velocity, and so on and calculate with all certainty whether the coin will land on its head or not. At this lower level then, the tossing of a coin is a deterministic process completely decided by the laws of physics. As soon as we return to the higher level of everyday human modeling and perception, we lose this...

Nomow Lawns

One of the most intriguing goals of ongoing turf research is to engineer no-mow grasses with exceptionally slow and stunted growth. This idea gained momentum in 1999 with reports that a gene regulating production of a steroid hormone was manipulated in such a way as to induce dwarfism in experimental tobacco and mustard plants. The plant hormone works much as do related steroids in animals, football players, and weightlifters, normally causing organisms to bulk up. By genetically turning production of the steroid down rather than up, the scientists created miniature plants. The turf company Scotts, among others, is very interested in the prospects for lawn grasses.

Matching Pennies

Some modern fighter aircraft are equipped with electronic jinking systems that can automatically randomize their evasion maneuvers when guided missiles try to intercept them ( jinking means zigzagging very abruptly and randomly). Professional tennis players are coached to mix it up when they serve and return shots. Plays in American football are carefully randomized to be unpredictable. Random drug tests make it harder for Olympic athletes to predict when they can abuse steroids. These are all mixed strategies that work by being unpredictable. Game theory showed the common rationale for randomness in many situations like these, where players have conflicts of interest and benefit from predicting each other's behavior.

Nasal Tape

You've probably seen pro football players on the sidelines wearing odd-looking pieces of tape across the bridge of their noses. Although the strips' effectiveness in enhancing athletic performance through better nasal breathing is doubtful, they can help relieve nasal obstruction in a subset of sinusitis sufferers whose obstruction is caused by a very specific problem a narrowed nasal valve.

The adult poisoner

Sparkes's trouble began on the evening of Wednesday, 10 February when he had a conversation with Young, who gave him a glass of water. During the night he was violently sick and had diarrhoea, which persisted for four days, accompanied by pains in his testicles. When he next played football the following Saturday he was still unwell and after a few minutes of play he had to leave the field. About six weeks after this incident Sparkes spent an evening with Young and drank some wine, after which he was again very ill. He went on Thursday, 8 April to see his doctor who diagnosed a urinary infection. Luckily Sparkes left Slough on Friday, 30 April and never saw Young again until his trial 15 months later. However, his troubles persisted throughout the summer of that year he was twice examined in hospital where he was treated for strain and muscular troubles, and it was not until the autumn of that year that he began to recover.

Sports injuries

Sports injuries Football, basketball, baseball, soccer, hockey, gymnastics, and volleyball are the top six sports that cause the most injuries in children. Although these activities help develop muscles and coordination, they can also result in injury, especially in children, whose bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments are still growing. Basketball leads the list of most dangerous sport, with 574,000 injuries reported in 2001, followed closely by football, with 448,200 injuries. Children playing baseball received 252,665 injuries those playing soccer included 227,100 injuries. Hockey, which many consider to be a violent sport, was fifth on the list, with 80,700 injuries, followed by gymnastics at 75,000, and volleyball at 50,100.

Indicting Behavior

Various traits are combined in a predictive mathematical equation, called the specification equation. In principle, all behavior can be predicted from such equations. The specific terms, of course, would vary depending on the application. To predict which university football players would play the most games, an equation can be formed from four personality traits assessed by the 1 PF (group-dependence, tough-mindedness, extraversi n, and emotional stability) and five coaching variables (autocratic behavior, training and instruction, rewarding behavior, democratic behavior, and social support) (Garland & Barry, 1990). To predict the performance of airline cabin crew members, an equation would give positive weights to the 1 PF factors of emotional stability, conscientiousness, and tough-mindedness (Furnham, 1991). These equations are determined by research in specific settings.
