What are the risks of concussion in contact sports?

If you play a contact sport like football, or know someone who does, what should you know about concussions and health risks?

Not being the most active person around, I asked Doug Martini, a PhD student in the University of Michigan Neurosport Research Laboratory, what he thought it was important to know. And this video is the result!

Cardiorespiratory Fitness and Health: Clarifying the Risk-Protection Paradox

This Keynote lecture was presented at the 2017 ACSM Health & Fitness Summit by Barry A. Franklin of William Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak, MI.

This lecture will summarize the relations between physical activity, cardiorespiratory fitness, surgical outcomes and mortality, with specific reference to practical implications for health-fitness professionals. In addition, the presentation will compare moderate exercise versus high-intensity interval training, and the added effectiveness (if any) of extreme exercise on mortality. Finally, I plan to discuss ‘at risk activities’ for individuals with known or suspected cardiovascular disease, and provide recommendations to reduce the risk of exercise-related acute cardiac events.

The Reward Of Risk | Building Confidence In Kids

Patagonia was founded by climbers—risk taking is in our blood.

The guiding philosophies and key practices of our child-care program reflect Patagonia’s values, mission and culture. When babies want to roll down the grassy hill or two-year-olds want to scale the climbing wall, we stand nearby and assist only if necessary. When children make relatively small decisions - Should I climb this tree? - they practice weighing consequences before they get older and must make higher-stakes choices.

There is a difference between danger and risk. Our environments reflect this difference by being free of hazards but full of challenges. Teachers don’t encourage kids to climb higher than they’re prepared to, and they don’t hold them back if they seem capable and focused. Teachers are available to support children but ultimately want kids to be able to accurately assess risk.

Supporting children in taking chances teaches them to guide themselves safely, thoughtfully and confidently. Those are the rewards of risk.

RISK RACING RIPPER - Automated Motocross Goggle Roll-Off System


Dirt bike riders are all too familiar with roost and how it feels to be roosted, a never-ending spray of dirt, rocks, and mud! A constant lead would be ideal, but no one is ALWAYS in the lead, not even the G.O.A.T.! All that can be said is, “Thank goodness for goggles and roll-off systems”!

Despite their effectiveness in clearing a rider’s vision, all roll-off systems force the rider to let go of the handlebars. This idea can be intimidating to new riders, and it is dangerous no matter how skilled a rider may be. A bike is hard to control at race pace with only one hand on the bars, and there isn’t always a suitable jump to give the rider time to clear their vision while in the air. Seeing an opportunity to fix this issue, Risk Racing set out to design a solution. Introducing The RIPPER!

The RIPPER is an automated goggle roll-off system that is controlled by a wireless handlebar mounted button. Simply attach The RIPPER to the strap of your favorite goggle with roll-off system, and then mount the wireless button to the bikes handlebars. When vision becomes blocked, the rider keeps their hands on the bars and uses their thumb to press the wireless button. The RIPPER will rapidly pull the roll-off system cord to clear the rider’s vision in less than a second!

The RIPPER features 2 modes. The “Burst mode” activates the RIPPER for about 1 second, which is enough time to clear the vision on most goggles. The 2nd mode is a “Momentary / Continuous Mode” that allows the rider to press and hold the wireless button as long, or short, as they desire. In the momentary mode, the RIPPER will pull the roll film for the duration that the button is pressed and held giving the rider full control of their roll-off system film usage.

Each RIPPER has its own frequency so riders riding next to each other are unlikely to activate each other’s system. Additional wireless handlebar buttons can be purchased and synced to each rider’s individual RIPPER frequency, giving riders the option to mount buttons on multiple bikes.

The entire setup is lightweight, centrally mounted on the helmet, and low-profile. Weighing in at only 4.1 oz, the RIPPER is nearly half the weight of a full GoPro setup. With the first crack of the throttle the rider will forget it is even there…until their vision is blocked!

EZ Utility Jugs by Risk Racing

For more info read below or visit

Risk Racing is excited to report that their EZ3 Utility Jug is a success! So much so that they have chosen to add to the Utility Jug family by introducing the all new EZ5 Utility Jug! The EZ5 is a 5-gallon (20L) Utility jug with all the same features as the loved EZ3. It remains a visual standout with its sharp and aggressive design, but it doesn’t stop at looks. Risk has identified the challenges surrounding utility jugs and developed smart solutions to make life easier when dealing with fluids. This jug solves the trials and tribulations common with transport, pouring, and even venting.

The EZ Utility Jugs are exactly what the name implies, easy to use! They have a triple handle design that is completely unique. The top handle and side handle are obvious, but it is the third fingertip handle at the front of the jug that comes in handy during the end of the pour. This triple handle design allows the user to carry and pour at any angle with comfort and control. Use the EZ jugs with confidence knowing that they are constructed from thick-walled, high-density polyethylene, ensuring they are durable enough to hold up to any fluids you may transport. All gaskets are made from virgin nitrile rubber for chemical resistance, and they are replaceable.

The EZ Utility Jugs also solve the all too familiar problem of liquid spilling from the vent hole, which is typically placed entirely too close to the spout, so, “When you’re filling, you’re spilling”. Risk placed their anodized aluminum breather on the very back of the top handle, keeping it far from the spout, and ensuring plenty of venting without the spills. In addition, this durable aluminum breather is slotted so it acts like a throttle to control your pour speed.

Another common utility jug challenge is transportation. Safely securing a utility jug for transport can be a hassle, and tip overs can be a terrible mess, however Risk has solved this issue as well. The EZ Utility Jugs have a heat treated, spring steel floor mount which can be mounted in a trailer, van or truck bed. The EZ Utility Jug then snaps right in place, preventing it from falling over during transit. The EZ Floor Mount fits both the 3-gallon & 5-gallon EZ jugs. Additionally, a padlock can be placed through the EZ Floor Mount to securely lock the EZ Utility Jugs to your truck or trailer, protecting your investment.

Customers can choose to pair their EZ Utility Jugs with the new and improved Hose Bender spout, which features an anodized aluminum cap with a lanyard & hook system that forms the flexible hose into the perfect pouring position.

Ellen Brennan Will Show You Why Wingsuit Flying Is Worth The Risk | Wild Women, Ep. 6

In this episode of Wild Women the world’s fastest flying woman, Ellen Brennan, talks about the risks and rewards of the dangerous pursuit of wingsuit flying. Her interview gives us an unprecedented look into an often misunderstood sport and puts a very human face on what appears to be a superhuman feat.

Ellen started BASE jumping in 2006 and after many hours of practice and countless jumps she graduated to wingsuit flying in 2008. Since then she has dedicated much of her life to the sport, moving to Europe and making the Alps her playground.

It's so rewarding to do something you're not meant to do, Ellen says of wingsuit flying. You're doing what the birds do... and you're seeing everything from a different perspective.

IRPCS Masterclass Rule 7 Risk of Collision

Rule 7
Risk of collision

(a) Every vessel shall use all available means appropriate to the prevailing circumstances and conditions to determine if risk of collision exists. If there is any doubt such risk shall be deemed to exist.
(b) Proper use shall be made of radar equipment if fitted and operational, including long-range scanning to obtain early warning of risk of collision and radar plotting or equivalent systematic observation of detected objects.
(c) Assumptions shall not be made on the basis of scanty information, especially scanty radar information.
(d) In determining if risk of collision exists the following considerations shall be among those taken into account:
(i) such risk shall be deemed to exist if the compass bearing of an approaching vessel does
not appreciably change;
(ii) such risk may sometimes exist even when an appreciable bearing change is evident,
particularly when approaching a very large vessel or a tow or when approaching a vessel
at close range.
