Tre’Davious White versus the freight train

This website is about injuries, how they happen, when they happen and how they might be prevented in the future. Sometimes this is educational for players, other times this is equipment oriented.

NFL – Business, Politics, or What?

I, like everyone else, has heard about the NFL and players kneeling, and political arguments, and boycots, and and and, all season long. Oh, the President tweeted this, Jerry Jones is arguing over who runs the league, blah blah. Then you tune into the game, and there is political stunt after political discussion after advertising […]

That’s what is the most misunderstood thing about scientists. We aren’t magical, we don’t have some huge insight no […]

Enigma Machines Still Giving us Trouble ENIGMA@HOME

When I was in my 20s, and studying Physics for my undergraduate degree I started looking into ways I could contribute to the basis of scientific knowledge in my spare time. I know…I know get out just a little more. Bear with me a moment. Someone (probably one of my classmates) told me about this […]

Writing the Apocalypse, it is harder than you think

Writing the apocalypse is a hard thing to do. Let’s assume you are a writer, storyteller, movie maker, or just someone who enjoys thinking about how YOU would tell a story instead of the way some other person has done it. Now, let’s assume you want to write about the end of the world. Assuming […]
