Last Tuesday a group of leading sports scientists gathered in Northern England to watch the NBA Finals. The idea was for top trainers and scientists, from teams like the Premier League's Southampton and Manchester United along with England, Scotland and Welsh rugby clubs, to hear from Michael Young, noted expert from the Athletic Lab. The worry begins with a baseline level of "stress" -- that's their term -- surrounding all NBA players. Sports science has exploded in recent years with evidence that factors like mucked-up sleep, air travel and densely scheduled games put players in jeopardy. "It's unfathomable to go across the country from Cleveland to San Francisco -- at the very least a five-hour flight -- and then play 50 minutes in a game the next day," Young says. "And then you add to the fact that basically it's a one-man team at this point, and the mental and physical burden -- it's just overwhelming," Young says. Young remembers watching Game 3 while the trainers geeked out over the stamina of James, who was coming off two straight overtime games, including 50 minutes in Game 2. This was the party where people were dying to know LeBron's heart rate... Editor's Picks Sources: Cavs think Blatt should lean on vets There is a strong feeling within the Cavaliers that David Blatt could rely.
In the preceding weeks, rebels had captured a provincial capital, the Syrian pound had plummeted in value, and cracks had appeared within the highest echelons of the security establishment. At first glance, the SANA headlines seem like the stereotypical behavior of an authoritarian government (and indeed of a few liberal-democratic ones), trying to hoodwink people into believing the regime is stronger and more competent than it... Indeed, President Bashar al-Assad himself acknowledged military “setbacks” in a public address on May 6, 2015. If simple persuasion or indoctrination is not the aim, what is the function of these slickly produced state news items, whose production... After more than four years of a devastating war of attrition, there cannot be many people even inside the fortress of Damascus who look around them and see the Syria depicted on state news — a land where the army is always “thwarting” terrorists... So what sort of complex game of signals is the Syrian regime and its population involved in. To begin to understand Assad’s use of propaganda, we need to go back to the rule of his father, Hafez al-Assad, who seized power in 1970 after a series of...
Newly released emails written by former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton make clear she was intimately engaged in a broad spectrum of world events while in office. Late Tuesday evening, the State Department released some 3,000 pages of emails by the former first lady and New York senator. They reveal she was highly concerned with the day-to-day workings of Washington’s Fourth Estate and was well informed of her portrayal in the national media. Additionally, the messages lay bare Clinton’s almost painful awareness of losing her party’s presidential nomination in 2008 to Barack Obama. The messages give insight into how the Clintons’ political machine works. Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, have been the dominating force in Democratic politics since he won the White House in 1992. Obama upset their reign when he won the presidency in 2008, in part by using Hillary’s Clinton’s... But the emails released Tuesday show how Clinton wielded her influence in Obama’s administration.

Howard Miller Spokane Wall Clock, Brushed Aluminum
Amazing!!!! Was shocked that the product surpassed the price of the clock. Once on our kitchen wall it looks like it costs a couple hundred dollars. Love the retro look and the fact I can read the time. It replaced a clock that was difficult to read.
