How Do You Treat Immersion Foot Injury?
Discussion All occupations have some type of potential health consequences. Some are obvious because of the environment such as kitchen workers, first responders, helicopter pilots, etc. Others are may be less obvious or not considered such as slip and falls, cleaning supply chemical exposure, animal bites for postal and utility workers, etc. Noise and lifting objects are often overlooked problems in some settings but obvious in others such as construction. Protective measures, especially appropriate education and training and protective clothing and safety gear are obviously important for performing the work as safely as ...

How Will Empty Stands Affect Olympic Athletes in Tokyo?
The Opening Ceremony provided the first taste of what an Olympics without fans is like—devoid of the normal buzz of excitement and roar of the appreciative crowd, it was more solemn than celebratory. But it’s one thing to miss the noise for Opening Ceremony, quite another when it’s gone from the competitive events. Not every sport will be as affected by the loss of spectators at the Tokyo Games. Athletes competing in events like archery, which requires concentration and quiet, for example, might actually appreciate the respite. But team-based sports and events like swimming races might seem, well, a littl...

Consumer Health: 10 ways aerobic exercise can help you live longer and healthier

Aerobic activity causes you to breathe faster and more deeply, which maximizes the amount of oxygen in your blood. Your heart will beat faster, which increases blood flow to your muscles and back to your lungs. The better your aerobic fitness, the more efficiently your heart, lungs and blood vessels transport oxygen throughout… (Source: News from Mayo Clinic)

How Olympians Are Fighting to Put Athletes ’ Mental Health First
Jackson Avenue is the main road that cuts through Oxford, Miss. At its northern limit, it circles the Ole Miss campus where Raven Saunders had spent the past three years as a student athlete. At its western end, Jackson splits into a T junction populated by a cluster of familiar American fast food restaurants and retail chains: a Walmart Supercenter, a Home Depot, a Popeye’s, a Chick-Fil-A. Saunders, a senior at University of Mississippi and a star shot putter on the school’s track and field team, knew the intersection well. Turn right, and the road led home.

Reaping the benefits: Training in rice growing system ups yields and well-being
(University of Tsukuba) A researcher from the University of Tsukuba, together with well-known development economists, conducted randomized trials of the System of Rice Intensification (SRI) agronomy method. Following SRI training of 5,486 Bangladeshi rice farmers, they compared trained and untrained farmers. The results showed compelling benefits for SRI's efficacy in increasing yield and profits, how it improves farming households' well-being, and its positive spillover effects in communities. This bolsters support for SRI's value, especially in the Global South. (Source: EurekAlert! - Social and Behavioral Science)

This Is What Happens When an Athlete Tests Positive for COVID-19 at the Tokyo Olympics
Japanese health authorities have an aggressive testing plan in place for the Tokyo Olympics, but positive COVID-19 tests are already cropping up. With the Olympics taking place during a pandemic, in a city under a state of emergency, the Tokyo Organizing Committee has created a stringent set of policies governing how athletes and their coaches, trainers and other staff must behave to minimize the risk of both importing infections and spreading disease in the Olympic community. But even with aggressive testing, infections can happen. That’s because the virus is so unpredictable, and even though about 80% of athletes r...

Forget the Bezos and Branson Spaceflights. The Real Deal Happens This Fall
This has been a big month for billionaires in space. On July 11, Richard Branson flew aboard his Virgin Galactic VSS Unity spacecraft 80 km (50 mi) up to suborbital altitude, returned safely to Earth, and earned his astronaut wings in the process. Tuesday morning, Jeff Bezos followed, flying his Blue Origin New Shepard ship even higher—100 km (62 mi) up—and similarly joined the astronaut club. The media did what the media will always do in situations like this—present company included—which was to find a catchy hook (Billionaire Space Race!) and devote no end of coverage to the Branson-Bezos doings....
