While control can be defined as the degree of influence that an officer exerts over another in responding to a problem, officers must not only control the subject but themselves as well. While the goal of subject control is to gain compliance or cooperation, self-defense requires a need to articulate an imminent threat of death or great bodily harm (and to respond to that threat, accordingly). If an officer is not controlling or attempting to control a violator and is instead preparing to defend himself or others, he must decide the level of self-protection to employ. Is this merely a case of a simple deflection technique or must he draw his service weapon and shoot? The more skills that an officer can learn and retain will provide numerous options that can provide efficiency and effectiveness. … [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.

Another key misconception identified in our study was on the level of brain injury a concussion is thought to represent. Very few athletes and coaches correctly understood that a concussion represents a mild traumatic injury. Interestingly, those athletes who believed a concussion represents a severe brain injury reported engaging in more sparring sessions per week and fewer indicated they had suffered a concussion in the past year relative to those who understood the actual level of severity a concussion represents. This finding introduces how education on even basic concepts may help, as the understanding of this general idea led to safer behaviour and likely a more realistic perception of concussion occurrence. Therefore, big changes appear to be achievable through small steps. … [Read more...] about The Vicious Cycle of Concussion Ignorance in Combat Sports
