I was reading an article on lifehacker yesterday, and I found an article that was really interesting. At first I thought it was going to be about tips on how to work more efficiently, since that is what I was looking for, but it wasn’t. The article explained that our body works on its own schedule, and it expressed how we could work with our natural body clock to help work efficiently.
The other day in my English class we watched a movie called Guru of Go. It was about a college basketball player who collapsed and died on the court in the middle of one of his games. His name was Hank Gathers. The movie showed how inspiring Hank had been to both his teammates and his community. He was one of the best players in the college basketball and had natural talent and spark on the court. When he died his team was shocked. They didn’t know how to react to it. But they picked up and played together for Hank.
I was reading a newspaper article the other day and it said that the amount of sport related injuries has gone up immensely in the past 10 years. This is from kids being encouraged to try sports at a younger age and at a higher level. The article also stated that the majority of injuries come from kids who specialize in just one sport. At first I thought this made no sense because I was thinking that the more sports a person plays the susceptible they would be to getting different injuries from each sport. But as I kept reading, the article stated that the injuries relate to doing the same strenuous motion over and over again. For baseball it was shoulder problems, basketball, ankle and knee issues, and soccer, knee problems as well.
