Basketball

Here are 9 tips from pro coach Don Kelbick.

  1. Dribble the ball hard. The more time the ball spends in your hand, the more control you have of the ball. The harder you dribble, the quicker it gets back in your hand.
  2. Head up at all times. Look at the rim or a spot on the wall during all practice.
  3. Use your finger tips to control the ball, not your palm.
  4. Use your imagination. Picture when and how you would use each of the dribbles.
  5. Teach mentality. There is too much dribbling for no reason in our game today. I like to teach that the primary purpose for putting the ball on the floor is to get a lay-up. If you don't have an opportunity, don't put it on the floor.
  6. Basketball is a game of length. Work on lengthening the dribble. Work to get your opportunities with 1 dribble. You don't beat defenses with your dribble. You beat people with your feet; you SEPARATE from your defense with the dribble.
  7. Basketball is also a game of angles. Try to move in straight lines. Whenever you make an "East-West" move

Put Stress in Its Place

How you handle stress makes a big difference in how you feel. It might even help your blood pressure, blood sugar level, and the rest of you.  Use these calming strategies to stop stress ASAP.

 

1. Break Out the Bubble Gum

Next time you’re at the end of your rope, unwrap a stick of gum. According to studies, chewing gum lowers anxiety and eases stress. Some researchers think the rhythmic act of chewing may improve blood flow to your brain, while others believe the smell and taste help you relax.

2. Get Outside

Spending time outdoors, even close to home, is linked to better well-being. You're in a natural setting, and you're usually doing something active, like walking or hiking. Even a few minutes can make a difference in how you feel.

3. Smile Like You Mean It

Don’t roll your eyes the next time someone advises you to “grin and bear it.”  In times of tension, keeping a smile on your face – especially a genuine smile that’s formed by the muscles around your eyes as well as your mouth – reduces your body’s

Workout Not Working?

Who has time to waste on ineffective, risky exercises? Not you. So ditch these seven moves that won't deliver the results you want -- and may even cause injury.

No. 1: Lat Pull-down Behind the Head

The problem: Only people with very mobile shoulder joints can keep their spines straight enough to do this exercise properly. So the move — done wrong — can lead to shoulder impingement or worse, a tear in the rotator cuff. And if the bar hits the back of the neck, it could injure cervical vertebrae.

A Safer Lat Pull-down

On the pull–down machine, lean back a few degrees, use a wider–than–shoulder grip, and bring the bar down in front of your body to the breastbone, pulling shoulder blades down and together. Contract your abdominals to stabilize the body, and avoid using momentum to swing the bar up and down. The lat pull–down works the muscles of the upper back.

No. 2: Military Press Behind the Head

This shoulder move, in which you lift a barbell up and down behind the head, can cause

1. Tell People

This makes you accountable. Tell everyone who will listen, says Joe Donovan, a Milwaukee runner who wrote the Essential Guide to Training for Your First Marathon.

"Only when you tell other people is it real," he says. It became a topic of conversation and support among his fiancée (now his wife) and co-workers, which helped him stick to his training.

The first person to tell is your doctor -- you want to make sure you’re OK to run long distances.

2. Set a Specific Goal

It's not as simple as saying your goal is to finish 13.1 miles (a half-marathon) or 26.2 (a full marathon), says Cathy Fieseler, MD, a veteran marathoner and ultra-distance runner.

Ask yourself why you’re running the race, she

Proper-fitting shoes make all the difference whether you walk or run.

Running and walking are among the purest, most natural forms of exercise around. With newfangled innovations like Freon-filled midsoles and pump-it-up tongues, it's knowing which shoes to buy that seems to require an advanced degree.

Choose the wrong athletic shoes and you could end up lying on the couch nursing shin splints or aching heels instead of enjoying a brisk walk or run.

While most specialty sport-shoe stores have knowledgeable staff to guide you, you'll be a few steps ahead of the game armed with some basic knowledge about your feet and their specific needs. Here is some expert advice to heed before buying new footwear:

Don't make shoes multitask. Walking shoes are stiffer; running shoes are more flexible, with extra cushioning to handle greater impact. If you do both activities, get a pair for each one.

Know your foot. Sure, we've all got 10 toes and two heels, but beyond that, feet come in a variety of shapes -- and knowing your foot's particular quirks is key to selecting the right pair

Remy hair can be virgin, or processed for color or texture. When washed, it will not mat and tangle. The hair is harvested or cut from the head of a donor with the cuticles intact (not stripped).  The hair of wholesale virgin hair is aligned from root to tip, all in the same direction as on a natural head of hair.  Because the cuticles flow in the same direction, it does not tangle or mat and hair remains stronger. The result is a smooth, glossy and natural look.  Cuticle hair wigs has a longer life (typically 3 times) than regular human hair wigs.

Most human hair sold in the industry is non-cuticle hair. Some businesses process non-cuticle hair with a silicone coating to help prevent tangling so that it resembles human hair. The hair is collected at random and undergoes a cuticle-stripping process called an acid-bath. Afterwards, silicone is placed over the cuticles to give the hair an illusion of a shiny and smooth appearance. The silicone wears off when the hair is wet or washed, which disturbs the cuticles causing the hair to mat and tangle easily. Remy hair does not mat or tangle because all the cuticles are

The Best a Sport Can Be

There are many different sports in the world, and they all range based on how popular they are in certain geographical areas, based on how complicated they are, and even based on how dangerous they are. America is home to a wide variety of sports that many other countries do not partake in, or may not have even heard of, but a sport's prominence varies within this country as well.

Something to consider when studying American society and sports is the gap between how much attention a sport will get, and how much people know about the sport and it's legends that have played it. An interesting sport to look into due to it's gap that is previously mentioned is baseball due to the fact that it is considered America's pastime, but does not have the viewership that other sports have in this country. Taking a closer look, I think most people would realize why baseball might not have the same prominence as more intense sports such as football or basketball. Baseball is not considered as much of a "bang bang" sport as ones that are very fast moving, because every pitch counts,

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(Manchester, TN) In 1988, the Centre for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters (CRED) created the Emergency Events Database EM-DAT, with support from the Belgian government and the World Health Organization. This database serves to rationalize decision making when it comes to preparing for a disaster, while providing an objective base when it comes to setting priorities and assessing vulnerabilities. During the week of January 4-10, 2016, the database recorded a cold wave in Poland, an earthquake in Bangladesh and India, a storm in California, a gas leak in California and wildfires in Yarloop, Australia. Humans must be prepared at all times for these and numerous other types of disaster, as humans can never know when they will hit, and My Survival Forum can be of assistance with this preparation.

"My Survival Forum recently launched and covers a range of topics including disaster and emergency preparedness, primitive hunting and self sufficiency. Individuals concerned about what the future may hold need to visit this site to connect with others who share these concerns and exchange ideas on how to prepare for and handle any emergency. This forum is now the fastest growing survivalist community forum today," Daniel Branch, founder of
