Injured Jason Pierre-Paul expected at Giants headquarters – Yahoo Sports
28, 2014, file photo, New York Giants’ Jason Pierre-Paul (90) reacts EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Two months after injuring his right hand in a July 4 fireworks accident, two-time Pro Bowl defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul is expected to report to the New York Giants . Coach Tom Coughlin would not discuss the situation Monday until Pierre-Paul reports. Teammates are expecting him. Despite missing all of training camp, Coughlin would not rule him out for the season opener in Dallas on Sunday night – provided the doctors cleared him to play and he was fit. Pierre-Paul has not practiced in the new defensive system, and team doctors will be getting their first look at his hand. Since he had not signed his contract after the team tagged him as a franchise player, he refused to let the Giants examine his hand. Team doctors are sure to be cautious; Pierre-Paul comes with a $14.8 million salary this season. The Giants can put him on the non-football injury list if they don’t think he is ready. He would not have to be paid until he passes their physical.

Informing athletes about concussions may not change behavior – Yahoo News
Few studies reported on the efficacy of educational campaigns, and that may be a problem, the researchers write. There are more Web sites, social media and mobile device applications than reviews of those sources of information, and there is a danger that they might be propagating misconceptions, the researchers write. Surveys show between 25% and 60% of hockey players continue to play even when they have symptoms of concussion, the researchers note. Athletes may also tend not to report concussions when they happen. When anonymously surveyed, hockey players said they had suffered concussions 30 times more often than the official injury reports indicated. Unreported concussions ranged from 20% to 50% among college football, hockey, soccer and rugby players. Their conclusion is consistent with my work evaluating existing concussion education programs, Dr. Emily Kroshus, an assistant professor at University of Washington in Seattle, said of the new work. This does not mean that concussion education itself is an ineffective concept, but that current approaches have tended to be designed in a way that they are not targeting and changing attitudes/beliefs that are actually driving concussion reporting behavior, she told Reuters Health by email. More research on the efficacy of different educational programs is needed and the programs themselves should be improved, the researchers write. Education is not just informing, it’s changing behavior. Understanding athlete behavior (the hesitancy to report injury, peer pressure, times in the year when they are less likely to report) is a key component of improving athletes perceptions and reporting behaviors when it comes to concussions, Dr.

Simple Ideas On Smart Methods Of Safety Training
After stopping at a red light, a dark blue sedan pulled up next to me and the woman driving waved to get my attention. I rolled down the window expecting an inquiry about directions. Instead she just smiled and said “Isn’t it a beautiful morning?” I took note and replied “it really is, thanks for pointing that out”.
Local law enforcement agencies are embracing body cameras | Herald Democrat
Sherman Police Department Sgt. D.M. Hampton said his agency has tested some body cameras but doesnt want to rush into purchasing them and is hoping to get federal funding before buying the cameras. We want to make sure we do due diligence and get whats going to integrate best with what we already have, Hampton said. We also like to talk to other agencies that have used similar models because a lot of times you can learn from their mistakes. The Denison Police Department has also looked into body cameras but doesnt currently use or have plans to implement them. Theres a lot more to it than what people realize, DPD Lt. Mike Eppler said. Its not just buying body cameras and recording stuff. You have to be able to do something with the information after you get it. Its something Im sure we will do in the future, but we dont have a timeline at this point. The Pottsboro Police Department also doesnt currently utilize body cameras, and Police Chief Shone Nix said he plans to wait for any privacy concerns to be worked out before her looks into them seriously.
