How can you properly warm up before practice or an athletic event? I am certainly not an expert on every sport, but I will give you some ideas on a couple sports that I do know.In track you need to do some type of stretching for every area of the body. The old days of doing one lap around the track and then begin practicing will not work. Proper warm-up includes flexing the ankles, the knees, the hips, the elbows, the shoulders, etc. Every joint, and conversely every muscle attached to that joint, must be stretched and warmed up. To the passerby, a good track warm-up might look like a pre-school fun parade. The athletes are dipping down, seemingly falling forward, strutting, skipping & hopping, and the list goes on. Each one of these is done for a specific reason. During warm-ups they need to be watched by the coach or the young athletes will actually not be doing much more than the pre-school people mentioned earlier.When you go to a basketball game, what does the warm-up there consist of? You have lay-up drills, shooting drills, free throw drills, cutting drills, and so on. Each are designed to simulate what is going to happen in the game. All other sports have their own specific warm-up techniques.On the warm-down side, these drills are designed to get the body’s muscles back into a relaxed state before you sit down and have the blood flow concentrate in the wrong areas. I am not a doctor, so I will not pretend I know all the physiological reasons for this. I think you get the idea.
Juventus have earmarked Luis Suarez as the world-class player to spearhead their attack.This Uruguayan will turn 34 this season and has been told by new Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman that he won’t be in his plans.Both Gazzetta dello Sport and Corriere dello Sport report that Suarez and Juventus have reached an agreement over the switch. It is understood that he will take advantage of the Italian government’s growth decree that will allow the forward to save the club almost 50 per cent of his wages in two years.The decree is a package of measures aimed at returning to economic stability after the country dipped into a recession due to the coronavirus pandemic.Measures in place would help lighten the financial load of signing Suarez.The combative forward has reportedly already contacted club chief Pavel Nedved over a transfer after Koeman told him in a short phonecall that he was no longer needed.Pirlo will have spoken to Suarez over the phone and the sell would have been simple, he will be one of a handful of players in the world to have performed alongside both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.The transfer landscape has changed significantly for Juventus in the previous few days.The club were originally close to a deal for Roma striker Edin Dzeko but the capital club resisted.They are digging their heels in and it could be to Suarez’s benefit. As it stands, Roma and Juventus are at an impasse but there is a chance an agreement could still be reached.But a move for Suarez could be completed quickly, within a day, should Barcelona release him early, paying him £22million in severance.If Koeman gives the green light to terminating the former Liverpool man’s contract, Pirlo will be eyeing up one of the most dangerous front threes in football.A trio of Ronaldo, Suarez and Paulo Dybala, with Dzeko also a possible replacement, gives Juventus a formidable attacking set-up and much would see them start Serie A as heavy favourites once more to retain their crown.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
More than halfway through the 2005-06 season, the UW women’s basketball team is currently struggling to make it past the toughest part of its schedule.After opening the Big Ten schedule with a victory at Purdue, the Badgers have lost the ensuing five conference games and have not received any help due to a plethora of injuries.To make matters worse, sophomore guard Akiya Alexander — who had been the premier off-the-bench choice for head coach Lisa Stone — has been declared academically ineligible for the second semester after having taken a personal leave of absence for the past four games.Despite all the setbacks, Wisconsin will attempt to set all matters aside and get back on track as they host Iowa Thursday at the Kohl Center in yet another tough Big Ten battle.While the Hawkeyes may not be one of the top teams in the conference, their guards— particularly Big Ten scoring leader Crystal Smith — have allowed them to remain competitive in Big Ten play.”I think when you look at a lot of the teams that we’ve played so far this year, they’re senior-laden at perimeter,” Stone said of Iowa. “(Smith) is one of the best in the business, the quickest player and I said this last year, she’s the quickest player I’ve ever seen.”She’s very, very fast. They can rely on her to get to the free throw line; she gets to the line a lot because she’s so fast and can penetrate,” Stone added.Aside from Smith, another important Hawkeye Stone has been scouting is 6-foot-6 freshman center Megan Skouby, the tallest women’s basketball player in school history.Skouby has been off to a stellar start as of late by averaging 19.0 points over the past four games — highlighted by a 20-point performance at Michigan and 27 points against Michigan State.”That kid can flat-out play,” Stone said.Though this may be a must win game for Stone’s squad, this contest means more in the eyes of the bench boss.Stone played her collegiate career at Iowa City, where she scored 1,129 points in her four years — good for 14th in Iowa history.And Stone would like nothing more than to beat her alma mater on her new team’s home court, especially considering there is a strong personal connection with her and Crystal Smith.”Her father, Michael Morgan, who played at Iowa the same time Barry (Davis) was wrestling at Iowa and I was playing at Iowa, so quite the connection going on here today,” Stone said. “That’s his daughter and she’s a lot like her father, but he was not quite as quick as she is.”In order to knock off her former team, Stone desperately needs to find some consistency as her squad is coming off a disappointing 84-54 loss to Illinois — just one game after coming within six points of upsetting Michigan State, a game in which the Badgers actually led by as much as 10 at one point.”We’re kind of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde a little bit,” Stone said of the inconsistencies.Even so, Stone is confident Wisconsin will get back on track and Thursday’s game against Iowa will be very telling of how the Badgers will be able to complete the Big Ten schedule.”We only play Iowa once this year and we have them at home,” Stone said. “This is one that we need to rebound for. We need to look forward, look forward to the next two more at home before we go on the road again. We need to make a late push at some juncture.”Injuries finally decrease: There is actually some good news for the Grateful Red — according to Stone, Annie Nelson, who has been dealing with a shoulder injury, is close to playing at 100 percent after playing the past couple games at about 80 percent and Janese Banks, who has been battling a foot injury, may be able to return to action as early as Thursday.Both returns will be welcome additions to a team that has been injury-riddled this season and is looking to snap a four-game losing streak with a win against Iowa.In wake of all the injuries, Stone has added 5-foot-7-freshman point guard Kelsey Henrickson to the Badger roster as a practice player. The Monroe, Wis., native transferred from North Dakota State where she signed her national letter of intent, but never played for the Bisons. Henrickson will sit out for one full academic year and will have three and a half years of eligibility beginning in January of 2007.

YGAM achieves City & Guilds status for second year August 25, 2020 StumbleUpon Successful summer leaves Leadstar positive over industry’s recovery August 18, 2020 Share Submit Gambling.com maintains momentum against COVID-19 impacts August 19, 2020 Share Related Articles Industry figureheads and wider health and education stakeholders addressed the issue of whether children are really gambling – at the latest meeting of the ‘Parliamentary All Party Betting and Gaming Group’ (APBGG – 26 February 2019). The subject matter which has become a prominent issue for the UK gambling industry was discussed by – David Williams, Director of Public Affairs at Rank Group; Richard Flint, Executive Chairman at Sky Betting & Gaming; Ben Haden, Programme Director for Insight at the Gambling Commission and Lee Willows, CEO of Young Gamblers Education Trust (YGam).All panellists overwhelmingly agreed that ‘children do gamble’, as everyone offered solutions to the issues at hand. The ways in which a solution could be found differed, somewhat, with some suggesting technology-led ideas while others focused more on the educational approach. Nevertheless, panellists agreed that a multifaceted approach was needed was unanimously agreed upon.David Williams pointed out that the industry as a whole has “failed to grasp some nettles”, but in recent years, there has been both an appetite and determination to face problems head-on.He stated: “The betting and gaming industry must shoulder its fair share of blame for the binary and polarised climate that we all too often find ourselves in. As an industry we have been far too slow to cotton on to social concerns and public trends, and meet them head-on with intelligent and reasonable solutions.“We’re in danger of reducing everything to a “permit” or “prohibit” position; it’s not where we want to be.”The danger of polarising the debate, according to Williams, disregards the progressive work that the gambling industry is currently doing and has previously done to address the issues at hand.With the introduction of the self-imposed ‘whistle-to-whistle ban’, the increasing use of revenues to fund research education and treatment, it is essential that the industry as a whole seeks to find more effective solutions.Williams added: “The Commission has made considerable progress in addressing many of these issues, and recent judgements handed out over the appearance of gambling brands in popular TV programmes have been understandable. The announcement earlier this month to tighten up the process around age verification is welcomed.“I think there is less disagreement around the desired outcomes of change than some would have us believe.“We must take ourselves away from the extremes of a debate, and in doing so, we stand a better chance of making the progress that every single person in this room surely wants to see delivered.”While implementing legislation may have previously been seen as the sole way to resolve the issue, the conversation turned towards the need for conversation and collaboration between operators, parents, the media and the Government.Leading charity figure at YGam, Lee Willows, addressed the ways in which parents can facilitate education. He stated: “There is an importance in giving parents the tools they need to take the conversation on gambling into living rooms up and down the country. So it should be second nature when you hand your child an ipad or phone, that there is a conversation on digital resilience.“There isn’t an education component to the new safer gambling strategy, and I’m not saying this should be it, but our brochure shows what education could provide.”By providing education to both children and parents, a framework of responsibility can be created which can further prevention. Willows and the other panellists discussed the necessity of maintaining a functional, fruitful relationship with the Government through ensuring that Government figures are kept informed on issues.Richard Flint backed Willow’s suggestion that education should be a key way in ensuring that under-aged gambling is prevented. Participation in gambling has decreased across the board since 2013, with a decline of 29.7 per cent. Flint implied that the inclusion of messaging which highlights the risks posed by irresponsible gambling may have played a significant role in this decline – and it is these messages that have opened the dialogue across living rooms in the UK.The Gambling Commission, according to Flint, is doing ‘relatively well’ in addressing the issue, but the narrative portrayed by wider stakeholders must be changed. He argued: “Waking up to negative headlines is something executives in the gaming sector have regrettably become used to in recent years and the headlines of 21 November were particularly troubling.“I would say to many people not close to the gambling industry, by this I include many politicians, this has become the accepted narrative. These headlines are troubling for me.“Running an online gambling company for 15 years, and choosing like I do, to be available on social media, means I get a lot of data on the reality of the industry. In our data, I do become aware of people who have experienced harm from online gambling. I personally have met people who have been negatively affected by gambling, but have subsequently turned their lives around through treatment. I strongly believe children need education on the risks of gambling.”Education should be extended to both parents and children, as stressed by Flint, and it is by doing this that attitudes can be changed and the risks fully understood.Flint added: “Firstly, we need to make sure that children aren’t gambling under age or illegally, using the ID verification methods that we have online, and we agree that these checks should be done before bets can be placed.“Then we need to engage with the media to correct the myth that children are gambling with UK licenced operators in anything like the numbers implied in the reports– it is very hard for children to gamble online and withdraw any winnings, and the reality is that it isn’t a widespread phenomenon (and the Gambling Commission data agrees with this view).”While it has been suggested that the industry is not doing enough to tackle the matter, it is significant progress to note that the industry is in fact meeting with stakeholders and providing funding to research groups in order to source effective solutions for everyone. A duty to report cases of under-age gambling, according to Lord Bernard Donoughue, lies with the operators. With this in mind, educational and technological initiatives can be incorporated into future UK Gambling Commission strategies in the tackling of children gambling.Observing the discussion, Lord Donoughue emphasised that complacency from industry figures has previously led to harsh regulations being implemented, which have arguably hindered the gambling community.

NEW KID ON THE BEACHPitcher Reid Detmers, the Angels’ first-round pick in the June draft, has been training at the team’s alternate site in Long Beach since he signed a $4.67 million contract June 28. Tweaking his slider grip based on feedback from teammates and coaches, making it less like a curveball and more like a “true slider,” has been perhaps his biggest adjustment.“Our staff hasn’t really done much with me,” Detmers said. “They’ve kind of just left me on my own. They’re still trying to see what I do, still trying to figure out the things I do, watching me every day. I’m just going out there, doing my thing. If they see something that I could change, they’ll come up to me and talk to me about it.”Detmers allowed three runs in four starts for the University of Louisville before the coronavirus wiped out the NCAA season. The 6-foot-2 left-hander was chosen 10th overall by the Angels, the first of four players they chose in the draft.Detmers said he’s throwing to live hitters every fifth day, up to five innings each outing. Maddon didn’t discount the possibility that Detmers could contribute to the Angels this season.“It’s not out of the question,” he said.SHO-DAYAngels designated hitter Shohei Ohtani got a day off Monday against Anderson, a left-handed pitcher.Ohtani began the day hitting .203, and Maddon has taken a novel approach to helping him at the plate: studying film of Ohtani in high school. It’s a practice he learned from Gary Sutherland, who coordinated the Angels’ scouts as an assistant to general managers Bill Stoneman and Tony Reagins.“It’s incredible: when you looked at a really good hitter out of high school, and into college, and when he got here, almost 100 percent of the time, what he looked like in high school is what he should look like now to be successful,” Maddon said. “For me it’s about re-tracing history and letting him be his own coach.”INJURY UPDATESShortstop Andrelton Simmons (sprained left ankle) took ground balls and participated in batting practice prior to the game. Maddon said Simmons reported soreness moving side-to-side in a workout Saturday, and he’ll be re-evaluated Tuesday.Pitcher Cam Bedrosian (oblique) started a throwing program, but has no timetable for returning.“He’s doing better but I can tell he’s not 100 percent,” Maddon said.Related Articles Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield ANAHEIM – Like fans, opposing scouts have been banished from major league ballparks in 2020.Unlike fans, the scouts can’t see cardboard cutouts of their faces looming behind home plate.There are other, more practical implications to the empty-stadium policy caused by the novel coronavirus. The Angels are playing the Giants this week for the first time in 2020. Without advance scouts – those scouts who take notes on an opposing team in advance of an upcoming series – both teams are at the mercy of data, recent reports filed off a screen, and any reports filed before 2020, to game-plan for opponents.Scouting the Giants was fairly straightforward, Angels manager Joe Maddon said. With a couple of exceptions – rookie catcher Chadwick Tromp and second-year infielder Mauricio Dubon – the Angels faced a veteran lineup Monday. Pitcher Tyler Anderson was making his 75th career start. Scouting veteran teams does not pose a unique challenge in 2020. Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone “Nine rookies (in a lineup) scares the crap out of me,” Maddon said.Players making their major-league debuts this year have emerged from behind a virtual iron curtain. There are no minor league games this year, and the alternate-site camps are off limits to outsiders. Second- or third-hand information might be the best a scout can go on.Such was the case Sunday. Keibert Ruiz made his major league debut with the Dodgers and hit a home run off Julio Teheran in his first at-bat. This isn’t typical – for rookies in general, or those facing the Angels.As of game time Monday, 112 players had debuted in 2020. Ruiz was the fourth to debut against the Angels. The others: Mariners catcher Joseph Odom (walked, struck out, reached on an error), Mariners pitcher Joey Gerber (retired all three batters he faced), and A’s DH Vimael Machin (grounded out three times, including two that were double plays).“Even if you’ve seen a guy once or twice, to me, my eyeballs are important,” Maddon said. “I utilize all my stuff, but seeing people with your eyeballs matters. It gives you a better idea. I do look at everything. You’d like to be able to see them.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
