Love his work. The water bottle drill and the one where he throws feet together at first were huge for me.

This is the first time I've watched this video, and holy shit, I get it now. The Beato drill never made sense to me until now. I thought the whole point was to use nothing but your arm. Now I see the point was to know when in your motion to rip. It might've been obvious to others in the Beato video, but it wasn't to me.

The point of it is for you to understand how the location of your have in the disc dramatically affects the power of your throw. Very simple and effective drill.

Well, it does probably shut down the talking points about him being a poor put-upon husband trying to deal with a psycho wife.

No. 2 is spot on. The issues of who tipped off McMurphy and why are irrelevant to the Ohio State investigation.

It is relevant in the sense of why didn't they say something about it 3 years ago if they knew about it. It's irrelevant to the fact that if it happened and Ohio State knew and let it slide, they're going to get a metaphorical ass whooping.

I have 0 problem gutting Ohio State program to the core if the allegations are proven true. Right now, we just have two journalists doing an annoying game of showing us half the cards in their hands, the major players all are angling themselves to cover any potential legal exposure, and the national media has ramped their opinions and hot takes to 11 to get those precious clicks.

Maybe we should let cooler heads prevail and wait for all the facts to emerge?

Edit: JFC guys. I'm literally saying we should all be patient and getting downvoted for it. Unreal.

Thing is, that assumes we can trust the OSU investigation to be fair and reasonable. Baylor has taught us that we cannot trust investigations run by the school itself.

So waiting for the facts is useless. We will never know what happened. What we do know, is that OSU has a PR disaster, due, at least in part, to some very poor judgement by Meyer. In the meantime, all of the news out of Columbus indicates that nothing will come of it.

The investigators include a former acting U.S. Deputy Attorney and a former U.S. Attorney. I would hope they'd have the integrity to do the job.

The current evidence doesn't justify lumping us in with Baylor, and I'd appreciate if you would wait until it does to do so. If we get there, I'll help you burn down the athletic department.

Not OP but my mom had the same attitude. Here’s three prime examples.

She used to get mad when my brother would sleep on the couch instead of his bed, so one time she waited till he fell asleep there and and put Nair all over his right leg and left arm so all the hair fell off. He doesn’t sleep on the couch anymore.

When I played football in high school she got mad that i kept leaving my cleats in the living room because “they smell like shit.” Being a smart ass 16 year old I said “No, they smell like sweat.” That night she went and borrowed are neighbors dog poop and left it in my cleats in my closet. When I woke up to go to practice she smugly watched my horrified reaction to finding them and said “Now they smell like shit.” Absolutely savage move.

This last one wasn’t specifically my mom, all the neighbor moms did it too. My neighbor Ms. Tony was a hairdresser and used to give all the kids free haircuts in her backyard when she got off work. We would all just line up once a month for the usual cuts (there were like 4 to choose from). But, if your mom caught you swearing she would tell Ms Tony and instead of a normal haircut you would get a 50 year old Dad horseshoe haircut, because if you wanted to talk like an adult you better look like an adult. This only went till you were in 8th grade thank god.

Oops, I have no idea how I screwed that up.

I'm curious if this could be used as to make a monitor/TV.

Well, you can use a similar effect to create colorful objects, but the technique wouldn't work very well for displays. The reason is that when relying on interference the reflected color depends strongly on the viewing angle. As a result such a display would look very different depending on where you were standing, which is obviously not ideal.

I didn’t read the article but I am in the middle of my research on ACL’s so I have done a literature review on the current best practices. Basically a huge change from past rehabs is we will now delay surgery for a few weeks. Basically we “prehab” the knee and strengthen it as much as we can before repairing it. You don’t need an acl to do everyday activity, so our motto is the day you feel like you don’t need to have your acl repaired is the day we put you in surgery.

Also, it has been found that after tearing your acl, you lose a lot of neuromuscular function in your non injured knee, which leads to an increased risk of tearing your other acl. However, this crossover works the other way, so while we have the injured knee immobilized, we will rehab the non injured knee. This phenomenon is also used in return to play decisions. Previously, we would base a return to play on getting the injured knee strength and range of motion equal to the non injured knee. Since we now know that the non injured knee is also weaker, we were putting people back in less than 100%

Finally, another advancement is the idea of neuromuscular training. (As a side note this is what my research is in so it’s more of a new field and isn’t as widely utilized). In the past, most rehab was only focused on strengthening the knee and surrounding muscles and range of motion. What I’m looking at is how effective neuromuscular training is in reducing injury risk. We know that when an acl is torn, there is a major change in brain activity where certain areas of the brain (mostly areas that focus on vision and motor function) increase in activity, while other areas (like sensory areas) decrease in activity. This is likely due to the mechanoreceptors in the acl getting destroyed, which are impossible to repair. This leads to an increased reliance on visual feedback instead of proprioception. In rehab, it’s easy for an athlete to be able to focus on their knee to make it do what we want it to. But when they’re on the field, they can’t spend the whole time devoting their attention to their knee while also catching, throwing, and avoiding other players. This has led a lot of clinicians to design rehab exercises where the athlete has to dual task, whether it be balancing on one leg while doing math problems or exercises that simulate game situations

It being a disease or not is semantics (but interesting) and 100% irrelevant to my original point which is CTE is essentially brain damage. This means presentation/symptoms can range from unnoticable loss in fine motor skills to occasional headaches to crippling light sensitivity or Parkinson's like loss of motor control.

Assuming that because they don't have severe and noticeable symptoms that they don't have CTE is not a logical conclusion because there is no "defined symptoms" for brain damage and the disease is degenerative by nature. Meaning it might take 15 years for it to degenerate enough for people to notice.

Sorry, I should've been more clear. I was only referring to players who had retired decades ago, not recent ones. I agree that my methodology is weak, but as you have pointed out, the data set is lacking. That is why current studies need more research.

For sure the data set is lacking. We can thank the NFL for that as they squashed all research into the topic for decades and paid out a billion dollar settlement for it.

While a lot of the research is still in progress, even with a huge and complete data set it's important to understand still aren't going to have defined symptoms and it will still be really hard to determine if someone has CTE. Much like Parkinsons or cancer, we'll start diagnosing and treating based on environmental impact (probability) as opposed to waiting for a 100% confirmed diagnosis, because by the time you get a 100% confirmed diagnosis it will be too late.

What I'm arguing against is the idea that more research will somehow alter our current understanding. Maybe we get better at early-diagnosis (though not likely at this point, any obvious indicators would have already been discovered), but the reality is it will always be an inexact science. So the people holding out for "more conclusive research" will be forever holding out. For the same reason the NFL will always be able to say "they haven't found any link between football and CTE". Factually true, realistically a bold-faced lie which should result in public shaming and ridicule.

I disagree. Like Parkinson's, understanding CTE suffers from a lack of understanding of higher level brain physiology. I would be surprised if, in a decade or two, that doesn't change. When I was in grad school earlier this decade, a lot of money was being put into CNS research because it is the last major frontier of human research.

Relative to every other organ, the brain is poorly understood because of its complexity and the difficulty of doing ethical research. I think the issue you raise is a symptom of that fact, not of the difficulty of understanding and diagnosing CTE itself.

When has the executive branch not had the power to choose what laws to enforce and how to enforce them? Is this title not a clumsy way of saying that?

The president has the authority to engage in prosecutorial discretion, which applies to determining which individuals and cases shall be prosecuted for criminal and civil offenses against the United States. The president does not have the authority to refuse to implement laws which do not deal with criminal or civil offenses. The US Constitution says that the president shall Faithfully execute the laws.

Edit: this is a generalization. There are limited cases where courts allow the President to refuse to implement an act, but it must be on the basis of believing that it is unconstitutional, and not on the basis of policy disagreements with Congress. See further threading below.
