Fanhood to Manhood: Shock Therapy for the Recovering Sports Fanatic by Tommy Knoxville 5.0 Stars (5 Reviews)    Price verified 16 hours ago

If we want it bad enough, if we yell loud enough, if we concentrate hard enough, maybe we'll give our boys the edge they need. Regardless, we're all in. Seeing through their eyes, feeling through their muscles, we risk defeat alongside them, and the payoff is an experience bordering on the religious. The team affirms who we are. Their tradition = our tradition. Their reputation = our reputation. Their record = our record. Let it be known through our clothes, our ringtone, our Facebook posts: we are true fans for life. Ah, and the games themselves. The anticipation, the triumph, the group euphoria! That's the high we chase. That's the thrill that vindicates our loyalty. That's why we're fans. However, there's a dark side. When cheering for a team causes more anxiety than joy, when it affects how we show up for those we love, when it becomes an excuse for destructive behavior (binge spending, binge drinking, binge raging), when our obsession with the team's journey comes at the expense of our own journey - that's when an innocent hobby has turned toxic. Once upon a time, this was me. My mood, my esteem and my testosterone levels depended on the athletic performance of strangers. (Your testosterone levels, too, says science - see chapter 21.) I'd celebrate when they won and pout when they lost, sometimes for weeks at a time. Immersed in the delusion that their games had something to do with me, some of my highest thrills and deepest satisfaction came through my team. (Sound familiar?) While I chose this life, I didn't get it by accident. A billion-dollar industry had been quietly partnering with research psychologists to make me watch more, care more, spend more. Whatever it took to boost my "Psychological Commitment to Team" score (yes, that's a thing), to move me up the "Fan Involvement Ladder" (from suspect to customer to raving fan), to ensure I frequently "BIRGed" (Basked In Reflective Glory) and seldom "CORFed" (Cut Off Reflective Failure) - their ...

An Instant NHL Star: The "Elias Effect" by D. Farang Price verified one day ago

In his NHL rookie season, Elias finished with 66 points in 71 games - with 28 goals and 38 assists. He was named NHL Rookie of the Year. In his second season, Elias also finished with 66 points - this time in 68 games (as the season was shortened due to the Covid 19 Pandemic) - with 27 goals and 39 assists. The NHL announced it would resume play in August, 2020, after a 4-month-delay, to finish the 2019-2020 NHL season. The Canucks beat the Minnesota Wild in 4 games in a best of five format, to make the playoffs. Then, they went up against the 2019 Stanley Cup Champion St. Louis Blues in Round One. And they dominated the Blues, with Elias Pettersson as one of their go-to super stars. The 2019 NHL Rookie of the Year is stronger now and is currently built to withstand the physicality of the NHL playoffs. Big time. This is year 50 for the Vancouver Canucks, and they are now one of the favorites to finally win the top prize in hockey. A big reason why is Elias Pettersson, and the concomitant "Elias Effect."

Beating the Odds : The Las Vegas Golden Knights by D. Farang Price verified 6 hours ago

The entitled Las Vegas Golden Knights got the best players ever in any NHL draft; they are a supremely cocky, hard-working and resilient bunch with a huge chip on its collective shoulder. Perhaps the NHL teams that Vegas "raped" in the expansion draft should play the Knights with an equally big chip on their own collective shoulders. Heading into their first season, the Golden Knights were listed as 500 to 1 long shots to win the Stanley Cup and as a result, sports books in Las Vegas were due to take quite a hit had they pulled off the win. Director of trading Nick Bogdanovich said, "the estimates I heard around town of $5 or $6 million losses sounded about right," adding that it was the biggest liability he'd seen since William Hill U.S. was formed. As the Golden Knights progressed through the season and proved to be a veritable force in the league, odds makers had to find creative ways to hedge against the potential of a Stanley Cup win. Some sports books offered a "field" bet that allowed them to offset some of their risks, but even with the adjustments, a Golden Knights win was still a significant financial liability. Despite this, many of those running the sports books said they would have traded the huge financial hit if it meant their newfound team got to raise Lord Stanley's Cup in their first season. Alas, it was not to be, but the Golden Knights beat the odds - going from 500 to 1 underdogs - to 9-2 favorites to win the the Stanley Cup. That they lost to the Washington Capitals is no shame. For the 2018-2019 NHL season, the Golden Knights are now listed as 10 to 1 favorites to win it all in their second season. It'll be a real challenge for the NHL darling Las Vegas Golden Knights to Beat the Odds again. However, bet against them at your peril.

Mixed Martial Arts The Basics of Jujitsu & MMA by NISHANT BAXI (Scribl) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 16 hours ago

Jujitsu is a name used for Japanese martial arts techniques. The meaning of this word is the "art of softness" or "way of yielding". Jujitsu came from Japan as a way of defeat of an opponent without using any weapons. Since hitting the opponent didn't do much justice, they would be attacked with pins and throws. This worked against the attacker's energy. There are different ways that people do jujitsu. Some of the techniques used include, holds, throwing, trapping, biting, gouging, striking and kicking. At one time, there were self-defense schools that taught their students how to use weapons, but that is no longer the case. Jujitsu is practiced all over the world, including being used in sport form. It has been used in the Olympic Games competitions. Other methods of combat with jujitsu include: Striking (kicking and punching) Throwing (body throws) Restraining (pinning, wrestling) Defense moves (evading, blocking, escaping) Sport jujitsu has many forms. One of the most popular is judo, which has been implemented into the Olympic Games. Mixed-style competitions are the ones that are most seen at these Games. With these competitions, there are throws, strikes and holds in order for the competitors to get points. Kata competitions, which is where competitors use techniques of the same style and get graded for how well they perform. You will also find freestyle games where the competitors go after each other. The defenders are graded on how well they perform. With the jujitsu system, there is more attention paid to pinning, throwing, choking and strangling techniques. This is different than other systems of martial arts like karate. Even though jujitsu is originally a Japanese system, there are some jujitsu schools that use some Chinese moves. The danger of jujitsu is that with training, some of the moves can be fatal. Students that have jujitsu classes are usually taught in an environment that is not competitive.

Martial Arts and Well-Being explores how martial arts as a source of learning can contribute in important ways to health and well-being, as well as provide other broader social benefits. Using psychological and sociological theory related to behaviour, ritual, perception and reality construction, the book seeks to illustrate, with empirical data, how individuals make sense of and perceive the value of martial arts in their lives. This book draws on data from over 500 people, across all age ranges, and powerfully demonstrates that participating in martial arts can have a profound influence on the construction of behaviour patterns that are directly linked to lifestyle and health. Making individual connections regarding the benefits of practice, improvements to health and well-being - regardless of whether these improvements are 'true' in a medical sense - this book offers an important and original window into the importance of beliefs to health and well-being as well as the value of thinking about education as a process of life-long learning. This book will be of great interest to a range of audiences, including researchers, academics and postgraduate students interested in sports and exercise psychology, martial art studies and health and well-being. It should also be of interest to sociologists, social workers and martial arts practitioners.

Nature Guiding by William Gould Vinal (Comstock Publishing Associates) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 17 hours ago

Nature Guiding is the science of inculcating nature enthusiasm, nature principles, and nature facts into the spirit of individuals. "Doing" nature-study means observing, wondering, and solving problems. It could include collecting, building, measuring, painting, planning, writing, touching, experimenting or any of a wide range of other activities. Most importantly, it allows children to be "original investigators." This book is intended as a resource for teachers and students engaged in nature study at summer camps and in schools. William Gould Vinal believed that the teacher of nature study should be "in sympathy with the simple life and the country way," that the nature study should emphasize observation of the interactions of plants and animals in their environment, and not be reduced to matters of taxonomy and anatomy. In Nature Guiding, he offers advice to camp counselors and school teachers on incorporating nature study into everyday activities, as well as suggestions for parents and others about using visits to state and national parks to teach nature lore.
