especially well suited to this task2015-May-17

Change Your Life

In 1980, I was traveling in Kenya's Aberdare mountain range with my father, Dr. Isadore Rosenfeld renowned cardiologist and host of Fox News Sunday's "Housecall" when a runner burst into camp, having run 26 miles to deliver an urgent medical message. Upon receiving my father's reply, he took a sip of water and ran back to deliver it.

Being surrounded by the creatures of the African highlands, and having recently left the plains, I managed an evolutionary perspective on the fact that a man could run a double marathon through the forest outrunning lions and all that but barefoot? How could his ankles, knees and hips take the pounding, never mind his feet? The deed was unimaginable to someone who wore leather loafers to work and soft sneakers to the gym.

At that time, I could never have imagined that more than 30 years later there would be a quiet revolution in the way we see running. In the wake of Christopher McDougall's bestselling Authentic Ryan Clady Jersey "Born to Run" a chronicle of the exploits of the barefoot running of Tarahumara Indians of Mexico's Copper Canyon and perhaps coincident with a grassroots reevaluation of the role of the foot in life, if not love, athletes around the country are shedding their highly constructed, heavily cushioned running shoes in favor of high tech, minimalist shoes.

This change has been a long time coming. In 1997, Chinese scholar warrior Jwing Ming Yang discoursed on the evils of soft shoes at a martial Womens Ryan Clady Jersey arts symposium I attended in Virginia. Drawing on several thousands years of traditional Chinese medicine, he explained that from the standpoint of Chinese medicine there is a "heart" in the foot, one that functions like a fireplace bellows to aid in the circulation of fluid that Womens Von Miller Jersey would otherwise be trapped in the legs, pooling around the ankles because we are, after all, bags of water with a few stiff sticks thrown in. Wearing a shoe with too much padding on the bottom eliminates this effect; Authentic Von Miller Jersey the sole of the shoe is compressed rather than the sole of the foot, and, to press the analogy, the heart of the foot does not beat.

Western medicine recognizes the importance of muscular action in circulation of two of the body's critical fluids, lymph and blood. Lymph resembles blood plasma and is vital to the immune system. It relies on a complex system of tiny valves and is slowly propelled through the small spaces between tissues and organs by the action of both smooth and skeletal muscle. Patients whose lymphatic system is obstructed (a condition called lymphedema that may result from parasites or from radiation treatment for cancer) often exhibit swelling in the extremities, the result of pooling lymph. One treatment is to wrap the legs with compression bandages to help accomplish precisely the circulatory "squeezing" to which Master Yang referred. Blood is moved by muscle, too. Arteries have muscular walls that contract to help them carry oxygen rich blood to needy tissues, while veins, like lymph, rely on a combination of valves and the pumping action of skeletal muscles (including those in the hands, arms, legs and feet) to return deoxygenated blood to the heart.

Everyone knows that high heels are bad for the lower back, joints, intervertebral discs and overall posture, but it turns out that even the Womens Demaryius Thomas Jersey raised heel on most athletic shoes is less than ideal, as well. Thickly padded, laterally stabilized athletic shoes were initially conceived to protect ankles, knees, hips and spine from the repetitive torsional and shocking forces found in running. The idea had merit and still does for some people Authentic Demaryius Thomas Jersey but the competition of the consumer marketplace led the idea to run amok. Aggressive marketing these days has most of us, even kids, wearing shoes that in many cases overprotect the foot. The result is that foot muscles never develop properly, leading not only to effects on circulation, but frequently to problems with tendons, toes and nails.

The feet also play a role in the circulation of energy. Acupuncturists, massage therapists and reflexologists will tell you that some of the most important "points" are in the foot, including the sole. Barefoot running or walking, particularly over uneven terrain, stimulates these important points, yielding benefits well known to Eastern medicine.

In our aboriginal days, we experienced the world through the digits and muscles and skin of our feet just as much as we do through our hands. Most of us have lost that interface with the world, but we can begin to get it back by engaging a mind/body practice that uses our whole body and increases our awareness. Tai chi is especially well suited to this task, as it deliberately concentrates our attention on balance, footwork and stability.

It may also help to choose a shoe that allows the foot to function the way it was intended to while at the same time providing a level of protection from hazards on the roadway or, better, on the trail. Many athletes have a favorite brand, but for my money a good first step in the awakening of the foot is Nike's "Free" line, available as both runners and cross trainers. These shoes still have a raised heel and look and fit like regular athletic shoes, but they have minimal padding and a hyper flexible sole. A good next step might be the "Barefoot" shoes from Merrell or the New Balance Minimus line. At the extreme end of the spectrum is Vibram's FiveFinger offerings, shoes that are like gloves for your feet, toes and all.

Transition slowly to one of the less constructed athletic shoes if you want to reap the benefits, though, because years of relying on cushion, padding, and ankle support weaken the feet and it takes time to strengthen them again. Many minimal workout shoes will cause foot pain if worn too often and for too long at the beginning. Specific medical/structural issues aside, the change may cure existing or incipient problems, but if you rush it, you're going to be uncomfortable and may even hurt yourself. Try a half an hour here or there, then an hour, then more, all over the course of a few weeks. Walk barefoot more often, too. Your feet will love you for it.

the singer earned the best s2015-May-17

Carrie Underwood's new greatest hits package sets bar

With Carrie Underwood's first week sales for Karl Mecklenburg Broncos Jersey her new album, "Greatest Hits: Decade 1," the singer earned the best selling debut for a female Authentic Karl Mecklenburg Jersey hits album since the same year as her country music debut 2005.

Underwood's 25 track greatest hits collection sold 94,000 copies according to Nielsen SoundScan, and the equivalent of more than 102,000 albums according to the Billboard 200 chart's new streaming methodology.

Reba McEntire's "Reba 1's" set the previous all genre record.

"Carrie's 'Greatest Hits: Decade 1' crushed the odds," said Gary Overton, Sony Music Nashville chairman and CEO. "The reality is that greatest hits packages, in general, have less consumer appeal than they've Tom Jackson Jersey had in years past. It's also time when Tom Jackson Broncos Jersey country radio is playing very few females, and more artists are Gary Zimmerman Broncos Jersey missing sales forecasts than making or exceeding them."

Underwood's "Greatest Hits: Decade 1" includes all of her previously Authentic Gary Zimmerman Jersey released hits, as well as new single "Something in the Water," new song "Little Toy Guns," duets with Vince Gill and Brad Paisley and work tape recordings. "Carrie's fans are the most loyal fans in the world. They love her.

means planing a lot of material2015-May-17

Build a Surfboard Episode 1

Johnny likes a lot of rocker. He says "Rocker lets you put your weigh forward on the board. It makes the board faster. You can't have Shannon Sharpe Broncos Jersey enough rocker. Until you have too much. Too much makes the board slow."

Here's a masonite rocker template he made for a previous board. For the current board he shapes the rocker by eyeball.

There are fluorescent "sidelights" along each side of the room at elbow height. This light hits the board at a low angle and lets him see any bump or irregularity in the board.

That means planing a lot of material off the ends of the board to increase the rocker.

He Steve Atwater Broncos Jersey checks the board for flatness and twist by raising and lowering on end while sighting down the bottom.

Another method is to Authentic Steve Atwater Jersey put two levels across the board at two different points and sighting Shannon Sharpe Jersey across them to see if they're canted.

Examine the soles of your shoes. Note where UGG Mini wear has occurred. Most people seem to be amazed that their shoes wear at the rear outer corner. Most UGG Mini boots rearfoot strikers Terrell Davis Broncos Jersey will wear at this part of the shoe. The reason for this, which someday, somewhere a funded study will prove, is that for most heel strikers it is the point Mini ugg boots of first contact of the shoe with the ground. Most people walk and run with their feet slightly rotated from center. Runners, however, also have what is called a narrow base Mini uggs of gait. A narrow base of gait means that the feet contact close to the midline of your body. This creates additional varus (tilting in) of the limb. This results, for the rearfoot striker, in the first point hitting the ground being the outer corner of your shoe. Forefoot wear ugg 5854 may point to an individual who is a sprinter, runs fast, contacts the ground with the forefoot first or all of the above. Uneven forefoot wear may show where one metatarsal is plantarflexed relative to the others or where one metatarsal may be longer than the others. In the presence of significant forefoot wear, you Authentic Terrell Davis Jersey are at risk of stress fractures.

And I think we going to2015-May-17

Can Cardale Jones be expected to grab reins in one week

Barrett left the field in a cart with an air cast on his right leg, it wasn hard to see a win over Michigan, the Big Ten championship and a playoff spot leaving with him.

This was code blue. A quarterback can be Authentic Brian Dawkins Jersey product of those around him, as coach Urban Meyer often says, but Barrett is hardly another widget.

The Buckeyes offense has sometimes seemed even Brian Dawkins Broncos Jersey more dependent upon the redshirt freshman than it was on two time Big Ten offensive player of the year Braxton Miller, the injured Heisman Trophy candidate he replaced a few days before the start of the season.

Barrett was leaving. Was the season leaving with him?

Former third teamer Cardale Jones replaced him, and Ohio State went on to a 42 28 win over Michigan. But the Buckeyes other two goals might prove more problematic.

Before Barrett was injured, he ran for two touchdowns and passed for another to set the Big Ten record for touchdowns in a season with 43. His dazzling 25 yard touchdown run with seven seconds left in the first half brought the Buckeyes back from a 14 7 deficit Dennis Smith Jersey and gave the team confidence for the second half.

Next Heisman candidate up? Uh, well. Barrett, Meyer said. think he set the record in the history of the Big Ten Conference for touchdowns, and that a tribute. So we got to go. We got to go, and we have a lot of confidence in John Elway Broncos Jersey the guy that going to be doing it. His name is Cardale Jones. He been here, I think, for 120 years. He been here awhile.

practices. He going to get all the reps. And so we got to be ready to go.

This is where it starts to get dicey.

Jones is a third year sophomore who Authentic John Elway Jersey has never started a game. Even if he can get enough practice time to get the offense up to speed against Wisconsin in the Big Ten championship game on Saturday in Indianapolis, there are doubts that he can do enough to persuade the College Football Playoff committee to move the Buckeyes into one of the four playoff spots.

Ohio State is ranked No. 6, and injuries that may have affected a team performance during the season or likely will affect its postseason performance are one of the factors that the committee is supposed to consider.

By any measure, Barrett injury would qualify, which could be especially critical given that the Buckeyes were already on the outside looking in.

didn think of (that) until you said it, Meyer said. won the game. I think it all going to be how we play next week. And I think we going to have Cardale ready to go next week.

The fact that there is a next week helps. Older Big Ten fans can remember when Michigan quarterback Dennis Franklin suffered a broken collarbone during a 10 10 tie with Ohio State in 1973 that left the teams tied in the standings.

Under normal circumstances, the Wolverines would have gone to the Rose Bowl because the Buckeyes had been there the year before, but the league athletic directors voted to send the Buckeyes as the stronger representative because Franklin was hurt.

Jones, at least, will have a chance to show the playoff committee that the Buckeyes can be just as good with him at quarterback.

That seems unlikely given Barrett record setting season, but then it seemed Dennis Smith Broncos Jersey just as unlikely that Barrett could replace Miller. Then again, Jones will have only one week of practice as the starter and one game to win the Big Ten title and impress the committee.
