Why Do I Have to Pay For Certain EBP Courses?
NATA
We have recently received questions from members about why they are unable to use their free CEU Bucks toward the cost of several EBP courses in the Quiz Center. The reason is that these courses were originally made available to convention attendees as a thank you and a bonus for attending the convention. In order to not devalue this benefit, we felt it was necessary to have non-attendees pay for the courses. The price was set at $25 per CEU, which is a rate that is less expensive than what is charged by other providers for many of the home study courses.

It's 6:35 on a cool October morning, still nearly an hour before sunrise, when Mychal Shaw emerges from his bedroom, pulls a Lee's Summit North shirt over his head and joins his family in the kitchen for a morning prayer. At his mother's request, he locks hands with his father and younger brother. A hallway chandelier supplies a beam of light as Mychal bows his head.

Heads Up: Don't Let Soccer Concussions Fly Under the Radar
Time
The human skull is very durable but the brain inside is incredibly fragile — even more so if it's the developing brain of a child or a teenager. Over the past decade, research has determined that a concussion — the trauma caused when soft, easily damaged brain tissue strikes the unyielding skull — is more dangerous than previously understood, and the effects of this trauma are more pronounced in developing brains.
