Philly Insider Tip of the Week
"For cheesesteaks, there are two places I would go: there’s Abner's Cheesesteaks of University City, right by Drexel University, and then Larry’s Steaks, Philadelphia Home of the Belly Filler. If you can eat a Belly Filler it’s free. No one can eat a Belly Filler. My best advice about cheesesteaks? Already know what you want to order before you get to the counter, or everyone will know you're not a local."
-2010 Johnson & Johnson Keynote speaker Kevin Carroll, AT Ret.

from The Newark Star-Ledger    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Two years ago, as a junior at West Milford High School in Passaic County, Alexa McCormack suffered a concussion that knocked her unconscious and split her eardrum. It was one of three concussions she sustained during the last 18 months of her career as a cheerleader. McCormack's injuries are hardly unusual in cheerleading, which, according to a study released last year by the National Center for Catastrophic Sports Injury Research, accounts for 65.1 percent of all catastrophic sports injuries female athletes have incurred over the past 25 years.

Running, although it has proven cardiovascular and other health benefits, can increase stresses on the joints of the leg.

They concluded that running shoes exerted more stress on these joints compared to running barefoot or walking in high-heeled shoes. More

Other States, NFL Have Tougher Concussion Rules Than California
from The San Jose Mercury News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In Washington state, a new law requires a doctor's clearance before youth athletes who suffer a suspected concussion can resume play. In Oregon, a new law mandates annual concussion training for coaches. School sports officials there keep players who suffer such head injuries off the field for the rest of the day and mandate a medical evaluation before they return. Similar rules now apply to pro football players. But concussion regulations are looser in California, where a blow to the head during a Thanksgiving Day football game nearly killed a San Jose High Academy player. More
