The Father of Athletic Training

first_imgWilliam “Pinky” Newell is known as Father of Athletic Training.  Pinky Newell was the athletic trainer at Purdue University when I was a student there.  Newell, an Oklahoma native, attended Purdue on a football scholarship.  Since it was during WWII, Newell spent 3 years in the marine corps.  He then returned to Purdue to finish his degree.  Newell completed his physical therapy work at Stanford after he finished his physical education degree at Purdue.  In 1950 he returned to Purdue as their athletic trainer.  He immediately became part of NATA (National Athletic Trainers Association) and became its executive secretary in 1956.  During his 12-year tenure he helped them adopt a Code of Ethics and laid the groundwork for certification.Newell is credited for turning athletic training from an occupation into a profession.  Every athletic trainer today is in his debt.  Part of Newell’s family resides in Batesville.  A couple of his grandchildren were by students and track team members.Some of the information for this article was found on the web under Indiana Athletic Trainers Association.last_img read more

Liverpool see off Swansea

first_img Liverpool offered only fleeting moments of menace, most notably when Daniel Sturridge held off Amat for Adam Lallana to fire into Lukasz Fabiasnki’s midriff and the Polish goalkeeper comfortably plucking Philippe Coutinho’s 20-yard shot out of the air. But it was Swansea’s one-touch passing which was catching the eye and Ki found Gomis whose smart one-two with Routledge freed the Frenchman on goal. Gomis took the shot early, maybe too hastily, but it still forced a fine sprawling save from Simon Mignolet in the Liverpool goal. Mignolet made an even better save from Gylfi Sigurdsson’s curling effort and was then relieved to see Jonjo Shelvey’s strike from the resulting corner deflect to safety off Alberto Moreno. Rodgers must have demanded a major improvement from his side at the start of a second half which opened with Gomis arriving late after the action had started. And Liverpool immediately began to find their rhythm, if not the final ball, as Swansea were penned back in their own half for the first time in the match. Swansea were almost cut open after 58 minutes when Sturridge fed Raheem Sterling down the right and his cut-back found Coutinho who forced an excellent save from Fabianski at the base of his post. Gerrard was sent on after 64 minutes with Liverpool firmly in the ascendancy and he was soon celebrating a goal, even if it came in rather fortuitous fashion. Skrtel advanced from the back and his pass squirmed through off Sturridge before Amat’s attempted clearance cannoned off Henderson and over the helpless Fabianski. After that Liverpool pretty much held Swansea at arm’s length and Sturridge almost put the gloss on the win when he struck the post in injury time. Liverpool maintained the pressure in the race for Champions League qualification as Jordan Henderson’s fortunate second-half goal saw off Swansea at the Liberty Stadium to seal a 1-0 win. Henderson’s 68th minute winner – his sixth goal of the season and his third in successive Barclays Premier League games – had a slice of good fortune about it as Jordi Amat’s attempted clearance clattered into him, but Liverpool will not worry about that on a night when Swansea had them clinging on for large parts of the first half. But Liverpool showed the resilience of a side which has not conceded away from home in the league since December 14 and grew in stature as the second half unfolded. Press Association The gap between themselves and fourth-placed Manchester United was cut to two points again before the pair meet in a huge Anfield collision on Sunday. After Arsenal and United both won over the weekend Liverpool knew they could not afford to slip up in south Wales and they were boosted by the return of skipper Steven Gerrard to the matchday squad after missing seven games with hamstring trouble. But Gerrard started on the bench as Rodgers kept faith with the midfield and attacking personnel which had served him so well in recent weeks and underpinned the performances which have made Liverpool the form team of 2015. Joe Allen had shaken off a hip injury to feature against his former club and Martin Skrtel had recovered from the sickening fall which forced his withdrawal from Liverpool’s last game, the FA Cup quarter-final tie against Blackburn eight days earlier. Bafetimbi Gomis had also been declared fit to lead the Swansea forward line after collapsing on the field at Tottenham on March 4, the result of a vasovagal condition which can lead to low blood pressure but one which apparently has no lasting effects. Liverpool’s need for the three points was greater than a Swansea side who had already reached the 40-point mark expected to guarantee another season of Premier League football, but it was the hosts who enjoyed the greater possession and scoring opportunities in an enthralling first half. Swansea were also slick on the break and Allen’s saving tackle prevented Gomis from profiting after rounding Emre Can before Skrtel took up the right position to clear Ki Sung-yueng’s header at the back post. Skrtel’s carbon-copy clearance soon denied Gomis as Swansea spotted a route to goal through Wayne Routledge’s forays down the right flank and crosses to the far post. last_img read more

Algeria seal shootout win over Ivory Coast to book semi-final berth

first_imgSUEZ, Egypt (Reuters) – Experienced striker Wilfried Bony and midfielder Serey Die missed penalties in the shootout as Algeria sealed a 4-3 victory over the Ivory Coast following an entertaining 1-1 Africa Cup of Nations quarter-final draw on Thursday.Algeria will now meet Nigeria in the semi-finals at the Cairo International Stadium on Sunday as they seek to end their long wait for continental success that stretches back to 1990.Sofiane Feghouli put Algeria ahead in the first half, but they failed to increase that advantage when Baghdad Bounedjah missed a penalty early in the second period. Ivory Coast striker Jonathan Kodjia equalised just past the hour mark, after which both sides created chances and had efforts cleared off the line, but were unable to be separated in 120 minutes.Bony saw his weak penalty saved by Algerian goalkeeper Rais M’Bolhi, before captain Die struck the post to sink the 2015 Nations Cup champions and see the North African side advance to just a second semi-final in 29 years. Max Gradel’s curling 25-yard shot was tipped onto the post by a diving M’Bolhi as the Ivorians served notice of their early attacking intent.And it should have been 1-0 a few minutes later when the wizardry of Wilfried Zaha in the box saw him fashion a low cross that was perfect for Kodjia, who missed the ball completely. Algeria captain Riyad Mahrez fired wide at the other end, before they took the lead with a well-worked goal on 20 minutes.Full back Ramy Bensebaini picked up the loose ball on the left-hand side of the box and laid on a perfect pass for Feghouli to score.They could have made it 2-0 a minute into the second half when Ivory Coast goalkeeper Sylvain Gbohouo up-ended Bounedjah in the box, and after a consultation with the Video Assistant Referee, Bamlak Tessema Weyesa awarded the spot kick. Bounedjah took the penalty himself, but fired over off the crossbar.A few minutes later, Kodjia’s quick shot from a tight angle looped onto the woodwork, before the Aston Villa forward finally found the equaliser.Set free by Zaha on the right, he cut inside and let fly from the edge of the box, his shot arrowing into the bottom corner of the net. It was a first goal conceded by Algeria in the tournament.Mahrez then managed to beat Gbohouo with his low shot, but Mamadou Bagayoko did brilliantly to clear off the line.Ivorian Ismael Traore came closest to a winner in extra time when his scrambled shot from a corner was blocked on the line by Mehdi Zeffane.last_img read more

More Than 200 Bahamians Still Missing From Hurricane Dorian Should Be…

first_imgThe aftermath of Hurricane Dorian in The Bahamas. NASSAU, Bahamas, CMC –Months after Hurricane Dorian swept through the Bahamas causing damage estimated at US$3.4 billion, Health Minister Dr Duane Sands says the time has come for the country to acknowledge that more than 200 people lost their lives as a result of the Category 5 storm.At the end of November last year, the official death toll was put at 70 with 282 people missing.But, Sands told The Tribune newspaper that the relevant authorities will have to make a decision to confirm that more than 200 people died as a result of the storm that lashed the archipelago on September 1, 2019.“At some point, the government of The Bahamas will have to declare that over 200 people have died in Hurricane Dorian but I cannot officially say that as that is a multi-ministerial decision.“We have to do our due diligence and meet to decide. We want to move all of the outstanding matters to an agreed consensus or conclusion. We want to bring some closure. Again, we have not walked this road before,” Sands told the newspaper.The storm caused widespread damage mainly in Abaco and Grand Bahama, with officials indicating that the death tolls in those two areas were 60 and 10 respectively.A multi-agency meeting with the Ministries of Health, Legal Affairs, National Security, the Office of the Attorney General and other agencies was scheduled for Thursday but has since been moved to next week.“You would have heard me say that we would invite the International Red Cross to provide a safe space for persons who may not be willing to come forward to identify loved ones. And so that invitation and that request has already been made, the logistics of how that happens is very important.“Then it’s the whole issue of how long we are going to keep remains in refrigerated coolers particularly in Abaco. We need to identify a place for interment. We need to agree on a type of grid that would be set up and how we would reference remains,” Sands said.Under the law, it takes at least seven years to declare a missing person dead and the health minister said that it may be necessary to amend the legislation.“The Attorney General would have said, I would have said, that we are going to consider an abridged or shortened time different than the seven years and there are examples of countries that have shortened the timeline when people are presumed to be dead from a natural disaster, were declared dead.“You’ve got to ensure that whatever decision is made, that you have consulted adequately, that you did not ignore important considerations and so it is very important. There are legal requirements that have to be met. So, at the multi-ministerial meeting we want to bring this thing to some kind of closure on many different levels,” he told the newspaper.Sands said that more than 50 people remain unidentified in Abaco and all the remains in Grand Bahama have been identified and turned over to the families.last_img read more

U.S. Virus Patients, Businesses Suing China Over Outbreak and Info

first_imgIn one of the cases filed in Miami federal court, attorneys Matthew Moore and Jeremy Alters are suing the Chinese Communist Party as an entity separate from the Chinese government.“They have their own assets. They are recognized as an independent organization. We are going to argue they are not a part of the government,” Moore sas. “There has been personal injury that happened in the United States.”Alters adds: “They’re going to have to pay … We can say, ‘We’re not going to do business with you anymore.’ When you hit them in the (gross domestic product), it hurts.”On the other hand, Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang is defending his country’s record of fighting the virus. He states the lawsuit filed by the Missouri attorney general is “very absurd and has no factual and legal basis.”Shuang says that China has acted in an “open, transparent, and responsible manner,” and the U.S. government should “dismiss such vexatious litigation,” he said.In the meantime, efforts are underway in Congress and in some state legislatures to make it easier to sue China and other countries.It us not clear at this time whether any of the proposed legislation will pass. However, if the bills are ultimately enacted, legal experts believe such a situation could lead to hundreds more lawsuits against China. Groups of people in the United States who have been affected by the novel coronavirus are taking action against China for allegedly failing to contain the spread early.So far, at least nine lawsuits have been filed claiming that China attempted to hide information from the outbreak center of Wuhan, and to conceal what officials in that country knew.Eight of the lawsuits are potential class actions that could end up representing thousands of people and businesses. Another suit was filed by the attorney general of Missouri, which so far is the only state to take legal action against China.However, the cases face obstacles under the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act, which states that foreign governments cannot be sued in the U.S. unless certain exceptions are met.“We think it’s going to be an uphill battle for them to ultimately take advantage of those exceptions,” says Robert Boone, an attorney in Los Angeles who specializes in class action cases.One of those exceptions involves commercial activity that directly affects the U.S.Another of the exceptions addresses misconduct inside the U.S. under certain circumstances that is then traceable back to a foreign government. Yet another exception covers whether the foreign entity explicitly waived its immunity, such as by including certain language in a contract.The attorneys who filed the lawsuits say they can prove those claims, and will determine some method of collecting damages, perhaps by seizing Chinese bank accounts or other assets here. if the Chinese refuse to pay, if they end up winning.Bernie Marcus: Missouri’s lawsuit against the Chinese Communist Party outlines all the ways the CCP failed the world during the COVID-19. The communist dictatorship must be held accountable.https://t.co/eG02gCb5NX— newtgingrich (@newtgingrich) May 5, 2020last_img read more
