Techniques, tactics, and technologies in subject control and self-defense baffle the world of police officers well before they baffle the general public—especially when definitive guidelines and application principles are not given or understood. For example, many control techniques lead to pain responses if executed with subject resistance. Continuing or exceeding this use of control beyond compliance becomes problematic from a legal standpoint. That is, once applied, has the subject now become a threat? Are they belligerent? Pepper sprays conducted energy weapons (taser), and batons, which are functional and reasonable, do not control individuals but subdue them and incapacitate them to the point that physical control (hands-on) can be established. … [Read more...] about Police Use of Force: Not Always For Public Consumption

A recent opinion piece by the Editorial Board of The New York Times entitled The Coronavirus’s Lost Generation of Students has raised concerns that the same type of slump or slide is likely to occur during the COVID-19 pandemic for many of our nation's 50 million children, regardless of learning difficulties. They cite a study by the Northwest Evaluation Association that suggests, students who do not receive sustained instruction during the coronavirus school shutdown will retain only 70 percent of their annual reading gains compared to a typical year. Deteriorating performance in math is even more dramatic. These losses can be attributed in part to missing many days of school at the onset of the pandemic when most schools were unprepared to move to online learning platforms.

However, the vicious cycle of transferring incorrect knowledge and dangerous attitudes regarding concussion can be a challenging one to overcome. In our study coaches declared that scientific literature is neither easy to access or to interpret, and this cannot be underestimated. The use of short educational videos, computer-based learning programs, and infographics directed toward a lay audience were noted as the ideal forms of communication requested by combat sports coaches. These strategies represent the concept of knowledge translation, a process of dynamic and interactive strategies used to improve communication between researchers and knowledge users. As scientist, researcher, and martial artist, I believe it is important to acknowledge that alternative educational means must be produced to communicate effectively with different audiences. This was the main reason I started writing books more than a decade ago. … [Read more...] about The Vicious Cycle of Concussion Ignorance in Combat Sports
It’s technical! “In working with high school athletes, my most important factors in concussion evaluation are P.E.A.R.L. (Pupils Equal and Reactive to Light), occular tracking, retro/anterograde amnesia, cognitive responses to questions (basic math), awareness level, and balance and head pain. I'm more concerned about the long term issues a student athlete may have with their brain. It is difficult with some of the parents…but I tell the students that, yes, their sport is important but your brain is more important...It's one injury that could last a lifetime.” — Kristen A.
