first_img Panthers’ Cam Newton admits he shouldn’t have thrown with shoulder injury Former @GamecockFB kicker Elliott Fry continues to stay hot for the Chicago Bears. @wachfox pic.twitter.com/qYd05giwf9— Mike Uva (@Mike_Uva) August 9, 2019The move was unusual in an exhibition game and Rivera was asked about it after his team’s 23-13 win.“I did that to help the Bears,” Rivera told reporters. “They’re in a kicking contest. At the end of the day, you just never know. It’s one of those things you think about. You want to see how it works and you do it. And, there’s an alternative reason to doing it now in the preseason, as well.” Related News Fry is competing with Eddy Pineiro for the Bears’ kicking spot. Chicago acquired Pineiro from the Raiders in May in exchange for a conditional 2021 seventh-round pick.The 43-yarder was Fry’s only field goal attempt of the game while Pineiro made one kick from 23 yards away but missed from 48 yards out. Ron Rivera is at the podium https://t.co/F8ny1NlnTj— Carolina Panthers (@Panthers) August 9, 2019The Bears have been looking for a new kicker since they released Cody Parkey in late February. Parkey signed a four-year, $15 million contract, with $9 million guaranteed, with Chicago in March 2018. But, he was inconsistent last season and missed a potential game-winning 43-yard field goal attempt with time winding down in the team’s playoff loss to the Eagles. The NFL officially ruled the kick was tipped. Panthers coach Ron Rivera was trying to do the Bears a favor.Carolina called a timeout with less than five seconds to play in the second quarter of its preseason opener against Chicago at Soldier Field in an attempt to ice the kicker. The strategy, however, did not work out as Elliott Fry nailed a 43-yard field goal just before halftime.

first_imgAustralia’s sporting clubs have the potential to recruit over 1.1 million Australian primary school aged children in sport if they can address the key barriers to their sport participation, according to a new research report released this week. Minister for Sport, Senator Kate Lundy said the report – Market Segmentation for Sport Participation: Children 5-13 years old – identified the key motivators, needs and barriers that underpin Australian children’s participation in sport.“Young children tend to be fans of sport, and we see large numbers of primary-school aged children getting involved in club-based sport,” Senator Lundy said.“But, this research tells us that older kids often see sports clubs as competitive and overly focused on performance. These things are taking the fun out of sports participation for some kids. “The challenge for clubs is to remember that kids just want to have fun, and kids will leave club-based sport if they stop enjoying themselves.”One possible approach to keep Australian children engaged in sport is the Playing for Life philosophy, which is based on the concept of game play and uses games rather than traditional drill training to promote sports participation.The Playing For Life philosophy was developed by the Australian Sports Commission (ASC) as a means to engage children of all abilities in junior sports and to provide positive sporting experiences. Touch Football Australia (TFA) has partnered with the ASC, through its Active After School Communities (AASC) program, to provide children with an introductory Touch Football program. The Playing for Life – Touch Football coaching manual consists of seven sequential, game-based lessons suitable for primary school-aged children of all abilities. The lessons are designed to assist people with minimal experience in Touch Football, to deliver fun, inclusive games in line with the Playing for Life philosophy.Playing for Life is an approach to coaching that uses games rather than drills to introduce the skills and tactics of a particular sport, or structured physical activity, being delivered. Each session is designed purposefully, so that the games progressively introduce and develop a particular skill that is the focus of the session. The emphasis is on providing safe, fun, engaging activities that ensure maximum participation from all children, regardless of their level of ability.The Playing for Life – Touch Football resource has also been designed to strengthen the link between school and community participation, supporting the AASC program as a link in the junior participation pathway. To view the Playing for Life – Touch Football coaching manual, please click on the attachment below.The Minister has also released new research that validates the Playing For Life philosophy with children aged from five to 12, with Playing for Life to be effective at creating fun and inclusive environments for sport participation.The Children’s Market Segmentation and the Playing For Life validation research are complementary tools that can help sports understand and better retain children within their affiliates (clubs).The research follows on from the Adult Market Segmentation study released earlier this year. Both are key parts of the ASC’s leadership role in guiding sport through the provision of evidence-based support, tools and investment to increase participation.More information regarding the Children’s Market Segmentation and Playing For Life research is available at ausport.gov.au.Related Filesplay_for_life_-_touch_football_02-pdfRelated LinksPlaying For Lifelast_img read more

first_imgNew Delhi: In a first-of-its-kind initiative, the All India Institute of Medical Sciences Friday launched mobile methadone vans to provide treatment to opioid addicts in inner city neighbourhoods.As a pilot project, the National Drug Dependence Treatment Centre (NDDTC) of AIIMS has initiated the new service of delivering methadone through a mobile van in East Delhi. Opioid addiction is a significant problem in India, professor at NDDTC Dr Atul Ambekar said, adding these people require medicines such as methadone or buprenorphine for getting rid of the addiction. Methadone is a prescription drug given in a syrup form to patients as it helps in controlling the craving and withdrawals due to opioid addiction. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murderThe drug usually comes in liquid form but is also available in powder and tablet variants. It is usually taken under the supervision of a doctor because of its potential for abuse, Ambekar said. There are very few treatment centres providing these medicines while the need is very high. It is estimated that less than 2 per cent of the population addicted to opioids in India is receiving this treatment, which is recommended by various UN bodies and the World Health Organization (WHO),” Ambekar said. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchingsA recently released government survey report “Prevalence and Extent of Substance Use in India”, estimated that India has about 28 lakh people affected by addiction to opioids such as heroin, opium and various pharmaceutical products. Since methadone is a highly regulated medicine, it is only provided as daily observed treatment. It is available in just about a dozen cities in India, in-charge of the methadone clinic at NDDTC Dr Ravindra Rao said. “Patients often find it difficult to come to the clinic daily to receive methadone, which leads to them dropping-out of treatment midway,” Rao informed. The mobile methadone dispensing unit plans to bridge this gap and improve retention of patients into treatment enabling them to work and lead a healthier life, Dr Rao said. Currently, such dispensing vans or buses are available in few select developed countries in the world, such as USA, Portugal, Spain, Canada and Netherlands. With the launch of mobile delivery of methadone, India joins this elite club, he said. In fact, India is the first country in the South Asian region to initiate these services, Rao claimed. The van will be parked at strategic places in East Delhi and adjoining areas for fixed time period in the day where the patients can come and receive their medicine without having to travel to the main clinic. “In the trial run for the last two weeks, we already have more than two dozen patients enrolled in the facility and the response is very encouraging,” he said.last_img read more
