Video is powerful, to a point. Take out those cameras and use them!
Reports, and videos, say that this knee to the neck lasted for nine-minutes.
See two videos of an ongoing series that explores elements of graffiti and style-writing. Adapted from the same techniques Shane Pilster uses in his role as a teaching artist for Rivers of Steel's Graffiti and Style-writing school residencies, these tutorials provide creative expression (or simply stress relief) for kids and adults alike.
Wondering what will occur in Pittsburgh's Citiparks and Allegheny County Parks for summer 2020? Plus, the other big question is centered upon Pittsburgh Public Schools Summer Dreamers where we are with a contract to operate SKWIM & Water Polo Camp for kids at Greenway for 27 days. Insights welcome.
Today I hope to issue a video letter to Pittsburgh's Mayor, Bill Peduto, and Chief of Staff, Dan Gilman.

If you make one, or some, send a photo, and I'll share them here, or comment on my FB wall too.

The Louisiana State Tigers football program makes a strong case for the old “best offense is a good defense” adage.
Last January, a startup called Perch -- founded by 3 MIT jocks-cum-entrepreneurs -- started sending unsolicited emails to a number of athletics programs asking them to pilot a device created to collect data through velocity-based training. LSU was the first to say “Heeeeey.”
Velocity-based training is a technique that measures bar speed with respect to total weight and reps. This regimen improves power and explosiveness, which is vital to taking down linemen and breaking tackles.
Perch’s device works by aiming a camera -- similar to an Xbox Kinect -- on top of a weight rack and tracking a player’s movements. Data uploaded to the cloud gives coaches and trainers -- and players, who love to one-up one another -- real-time feedback on performance.
Three weeks after Perch installed units at LSU’s indoor football facility, Tigers head coach Ed Orgeron said he noticed differences.
“I think our guys are stronger and quicker and faster,” he told the WSJ. He also noted fewer injuries compared with prior years.
Since the LSU pilot, Perch has installed units at Duke University and will do so for NFL, NHL, and MLS teams as well as additional college football programs next year.
I didn't know the back story of the lefty, ex-baseball player, Governor Gavin.
My wife is a big fan of LeBron James too. She talked with him in Beijing in August 2008 while at the Olympics in a neighborhood setting. The podcast goes into the news about LeBron's statements about the NBA and its China dealings too. Humm.
Biggest point to be made about these statements of China, Hong Kong and the NBA include the fact that those in China can't even see Twitter. Twitter.com is a blocked URL from all of China. So,the tweet from the Houston GM was never seen by citizens inside of China.

Gavin Newsom says he would not be the governor of California if not for college sports. So why did he decide to sign a law that challenges the entire NCAA system? Also this week on Only A Game, LeBron James is facing criticism for his response to Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey's tweet.
