Heading—not collisions—cognitively impairs players - Worse cognitive function in soccer players stems mainly from frequent ball heading rather than unintentional head impacts due to collisions, researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine have found. The findings suggest that efforts to reduce long-term brain injuries may be focusing too narrowly on preventing accidental head collisions. The study published online today in the Frontiers in Neurology.

Eagles owner's anti-Trump comments surface as team discusses White House visit

Before President Donald Trump took office, the sports world began to fill with discussions of whether championship-winning teams would want to make the traditional White House visits during his administration.

Bolt of lightning over Southport, South Australia

While photographing the wonderful seascapes South Australia has to offer, one evening a storm approached from the horizon. Before I knew it, it was right over top. Standing ankle deep in water with a metal tripod in the middle of a lightning storm has it’s concerns I was lucky enough to capture this bolt right in front of me. And this is with a ultra-wide angle lens as well! I predict it would have been closer than 100m. Needless to say, this was my very last shot for the evening, lol.

Earth Between Jupiter and Sun - Jupiter's Closest Approach to Earth for 2018 MUST SEE!

On May 9th Jupiter reaches opposition, when it shines brightest and appears largest. The solar system is lined up so that Jupiter, Earth and the sun form a straight line with Earth in the middle.
The King Planet will appear highest overhead at midnight.

Earth-Jupiter close encounters happen every 13 months when the Earth’s orbit laps Jupiter’s orbit in their race around the sun. Astronomers call these events “oppositions of Jupiter” because Jupiter and the Sun are on opposite sides of the sky.

In 2018, Jupiter comes closest to Earth one day after its opposition date, on May 10, coming to within 409 million miles (658 million km) of Earth.

Through binoculars, you should be able to see Jupiter's four Galilean moons, Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto. Through a telescope, Jupiter's cloud belts and zones are easily visible, and the Great Red Spot can be seen beginning its transit--or crossing-of the disk every 10 hours.
