Coaches give warm response to cold therapy

first_imgKINGSTON:Coaches of student athletes participating in the Digicel Grand Prix Athletics Championship are happy that their contestants are enjoying the cool benefits of on-the-ground cold therapy, courtesy of Pure National Ice, one of the partners in the series of youth-development meets across the country.This new ice bath facility, known as the Pure National Ice Cold Therapy Zone, is expected to improve the overall performance of the athletes, especially those who perform in multiple events.”Having this cold therapy treatment here at the meets is a brilliant idea, especially since a lot of the athletes have to perform in multiple events on the same day or even in the same week,” said Leroy Gray, strength and conditioning coach at Racers Track Club and one of the coaches of the Kingston College (KC) track and field team.”This increased level of activity causes the build-up of a lot of lactic acid in their bodies, and the cold therapy is just one of the ways that we can help to remedy that.”Gray added: “I have no doubt that this cold therapy is going to help foster an overall improvement in the performance of the student athletes as it will replenish and recondition their muscles following an event, making them much lighter and re-energised for any subsequent events.”Patrick Johnson, one of the coaches at Excelsior High School, shared similar sentiments.”Today, one of my athletes made a big personal record in the 1500m,” he said at the Youngster Goldsmith track meet. “In order for him to repeat this kind of performance today, or even later this week, he needs this kind of therapy. The same can be said for other students who run the 400-metre final and also have to run the 4×4 relay.”Johnson also commended the sponsors, Pure National Ice and Digicel, saying: “A lot of us as coaches don’t have the means to provide this kind of therapy for our athletes while they are at school, much less while they are at these meets performing. This is quite an upgrade for a lot of them, and I must thank the sponsors for providing this facility at the meets and improving the overall quality of the experience for the students.””The Digicel Grand Prix gave us the opportunity to play a part in supporting sports development in Jamaica and preparing our young athletes for the world stage,” said David Walton, sales and marketing manager at Pure National Ice.”We know that many schools don’t have the capacity to provide this kind of therapy for their students, so we felt the development meets would be an ideal environment to expose them to the benefits of this. We consulted with a number of coaches and sports medicine experts and they all agree that having this type of therapy available on the ground would be highly beneficial to muscle recovery and performance of the athletes.”The Digicel Grand Prix Athletics Championship began on February 6 with the Western Championship at the Catherine Hall Sports Complex in Montego Bay and the Youngster Goldsmith Meet at the National Stadium. The series will culminate at the G.C. Foster Classics slated for February 20.The events include 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, long jump, high jump, discus and the 4x400m relays. The public is invited to log on to www.digicelgrandprix.com to keep abreast of the latest news.The Digicel Grand Prix Athletics Championship is sponsored by Sportsmax, Gatorade, Pure National Ice, Honey Bun, and Logo Stitch.last_img read more

The Kids Who Use Tech Seem to Be All Right

first_imgA new paper by scientists at the University of Oxford, published this week in Nature Human Behaviour, should help clear up the confusion. It reveals the pitfalls of the statistical methods scientists have employed and offers a more rigorous alternative. And, importantly, it uses data on more than 350,000 adolescents to show persuasively that, at a population level, technology use has a nearly negligible effect on adolescent psychological well-being, measured in a range of questions addressing depressive symptoms, suicidal ideation, pro-social behavior, peer-relationship problems and the like. Technology use tilts the needle less than half a percent away from feeling emotionally sound. For context, eating potatoes is associated with nearly the same degree of effect and wearing glasses has a more negative impact on adolescent mental health. “This is an incredibly important paper,” says Candice Odgers, a psychologist studying adolescent health and technology at the University of California, Irvine, who wasn’t involved in the research. “It provides a sophisticated set of analyses and is one of the most comprehensive and careful accountings of the associations between digital technologies and well-being to date. And the message from the paper is painstakingly clear: The size of the association documented across these studies is not sufficient or measurable enough to warrant the current levels of panic and fear around this issue.” Read the whole story: Scientific American Such are the conflicting messages about the effects of technology on children’s well-being. Negative findings receive far more attention and have fueled panic among parents and educators. This state of affairs reflects a heated debate among scientists. Studies showing statistically significant negative effects are followed by others revealing positive effects or none at all—sometimes using the same data set.center_img Social media is linked to depression—or not.

Get a First Look at the Worlds Largest Airplane

first_imgJune 1, 2017 Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos aren’t the only tech billionaires with their eyes set on space.Microsoft co-founder and Seattle Seahawks owner Paul Allen has been hush-hush about the massive aircraft he’s been constructing, but now it’s finally ready for testing.Allen’s “Stratolaunch” is the world’s largest aircraft, with a 385-foot wingspan and a height of 50 feet. The airplane features six engines — the same used on Boeing 747 aircrafts — and can carry up to 250,000 pounds of fuel. Without fuel, the plane weighs 500,000 pounds. With fuel, it can reach a whopping 1.3 million pounds. It features 28 wheels to get all that mass moving.Related: What Will It Be Like to Fly in a Blue Origin Spaceship?The aircraft has been in the works for years in an area of California’s Mojave Desert. The company’s goal is to have a launch demonstration by 2019, shared Stratolaunch’s CEO Jean Floyd. “Over the coming weeks and months, we’ll be actively conducting ground and flight line testing at the Mojave Air and Space Port,” Floyd said in a statement.This plane isn’t going to fly you to your next vacation destination. Instead, it will be used to launch rockets. Partnered with Orbital ATK, Allen’s Stratolaunch company has plans to “air launch” the Pegasus XL rocket, which delivers small satellites into orbit.So how exactly does that work? With the rockets attached to the bottom of the aircraft, the Stratolaunch will reach a flying altitude of about 35,000 feet — similar to that of commercial airplanes. “As the launch vehicle rockets into orbit, Stratolaunch will fly back to a runway landing for reloading, refueling and reuse,” Allen said in a blog post last year.Related: 8 Inspirational Quotes From Space Pioneer John GlennLike other tech entrepreneurs dipping into the aerospace industry, the primary goal of Allen’s Stratolaunch is to reduce costs and create a more efficient way to get small satellites to space.“When such access to space is routine, innovation will accelerate in ways beyond what we can currently imagine,” Allen said. “That’s the thing about new platforms: When they become easily available, convenient and affordable, they attract and enable other visionaries and entrepreneurs to realize more new concepts.” Register Now »center_img Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global 2 min readlast_img read more
