According to the Ted Stevens olympics, the national governing body must review and act on request (such as sanctions by persons or organizations to hold international athletic competition in the United States.) it is the responsibility of these governing bodies to represent countries I international federation, to establish and attain goals, to serve as a coordinating body for athletic activity, exercise jurisdiction over international sport events, and to conduct amateur athletic competitions, upon other responsibilities.

Paralympic sport organizations are a rapidly growing market. Paralympic sport organizations run sporting events that provide arenas for handicap athletes to perform.

The sport agent responsibility trust act is put in effect essentially to protect athletes from contracts locking them into an unfavorable deal. An example of this would be failure to disclose information to the athlete about wether or not they may lose NCAA eligibility. There have been many cases where athletes sign into contracts without knowing the entire deal, only to find that there are stipulations in the fine print that end up hurting the athletes career. The sport agent responsibility trust act (also known as SPARTA) was put in place to prevent this from happening.

Duties of SPARTA

1) a duty to be truthful to the athlete

2) the duty of full disclosure

3) a duty to refrain from “buying” an athlete

Weather warfare 3

So it has been seen in the past, but in this day in age who would possibly benefit from weather warfare? The following is an article that gives a bit of perspective on how it would feel if this modification of the earths natural weather system is disturbed.

“Today, with climate change accelerating and little being done to curb the greenhouse gas emissions, some scientists have resurrected the idea of “deliberate large-scale manipulation of the planetary environment,” as the U.K.’s Royal Society puts it. After all, it’s an idea nearly as old as the understanding of the physical principles behind global warming itself. Swedish chemist Svante Arrhenius thought that global warming would be a boon to humanity and therefore fossil fuel burning should be encouraged, after calculating by hand the likely temperature impact of continued coal-burning and rising carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations in the late 19th century—roughly matching the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and their computer models more than a century later.

That’s why 175 scientists and other interested folks (including companies looking to profit from geoengineering) gathered in the Asilomar conference center near the end of March to try to repeat the success of molecular biologists who gathered there in 1975 to reassure a skeptical public about genetic engineering. Ultimately, the gathered would-be geoengineers released a statement calling for, among other things, “further research in all relevant disciplines to better understand and communicate whether additional strategies to moderate future climate change are, or are not, viable, appropriate and ethical.”

The list of unintended consequences of human manipulation of natural systems is long: concrete jungles creating urban heat islands, vast oceanic dead zones resulting from fertilizer use on inland agricultural fields, and intentionally introduced species, such as the cane toad in Australia, that then wreak havoc on ecosystems, among others. Whether the idea is to mimic a volcano’s cooling impact on climate by continuously pumping sulfates into the stratosphere or to brighten clouds via crewless ships spewing water vapor, possible problems range from shutting down rainfall in certain regions to unilateral declarations of war.”

As clearly stated in this article, human manipulation of weather is unjust, unnatural, and just wrong! Could this be a way for government to subdue a population? It is unbearable to think about, yet proven by evidence that major hurricanes such as Katrina were caused by weather modification.

The following is a page from

This page does a good job of Illustrating multiple United States patents involving weather modification projects. Also on this page is the “hurricane modification workshop”, a textbook of information on how to create, enhance, and modify weather systems.

Weather warfare 2

The use of weather warfare by the American government has been seen as far back as the Vietnam war! Under the rule of president Johnson, America attacked Vietnam with more then heavy artillery. The Vietnamese Army fought a gorilla style war, and used the heavy brush of their land to hide and then ambush American soldiers. The Vietnamese soldiers relied heavily on the Ho Chi Min trail to transport goods from base to base. The Americans knew this, and as a counter measure, deployed Chemtrails were them used in a “cloud seeding” project which made the Vietnamese jungle, and Ho Chi Man trail flooded. Chemtrails essentially are streams of chemicals left in the sky by military planes, designed to change the weather of a specific region. They can be seen today all over the world. The following is an excerpt from an article on Operation Popeye.

Operation Popeye (also known as Project Popeye), was a US military cloud seeding operation during the Vietnam War, running from March 20, 1967 until July 5, 1972, which was intended to extend the monsoon season over Laos, specifically in areas of the Ho Chi Minh Trail. The military seeded clouds with silver iodide, resulting in the targeted areas seeing an extension of the monsoon period an average of 30 to 45 days. The objective of Operation Popeye was to increase rainfall in carefully selected areas to deny the Vietnamese enemy, namely military supply trucks, the use of roads by; softening road surface, causing landslides along roadways, washing out river crossings and maintaining saturated soil conditions beyond the normal time span. The operation was considered relatively successful

Weather Warefare intro

Weather Warfare

Weather warfare in the last century has literally taken over the globe. The blatant, obvious abuse of the earths atmosphere by way of chemically spraying the skies has resulted in climate change, bad weather, and natural disasters! Over the course of this project I will show different articles proving different points on the subject of GeoEngineering. The following is a list of side effects directly related to GeoEngineering according to
GeoEngineeringwatch.org
• Geoengineering related climate disruptions, extreme drought and deluge
• Ozone depletion
• Methane release
• Drastic reduction in arctic sea ice
• Global oxygen content reductions
• Oceans on the brink of collapse
• Massive fish die offs
• 200 species becoming extinct every single day
• A drastic rise in Autism, Alzheimer’s, and Dementia
• Crisis level forest reductions
• The sterilization of soils making it impossible for plants to grow without Monsanto’s aluminum resistant seeds

Why is this occurring!? Who does it benefit?

Sport Management

Volunteer work is something that too often is taken for granted, or un appreciated. In this day in age, volunteer opportunities are plentiful and can help impact the lives of people in such a way that may be hard to understand for others whom may be in a situation of fortune or prosperity.
When I heard about the ten required hours of community service for this class I was extremely excited. In my home town I volunteer as a coach of street hockey every weekend for an incredible group of children on the lower east side of Manhattan, New York. These children are growing up in the same neighborhood that I was born and raised in, facing similar struggles and temptations, I can relate very strongly to them and they can look up to me as one of the kids that “made it” out of the neighborhood. I achieved that with hard work in school, and the sport of ice hockey. As well as being blessed with a family that can afford to do so. I understand not everyone is as fortunate as me, and that’s one of the main reasons I love volunteering, especially giving back to my community.

I’ve also volunteer coached for a team in New Jersey named the Old Bridge Junior Knights. The coaching staff I worked with there was run by Rob Catello. I ran drills with the forwards of the team as a skater to demonstrate drills. I also talked to players in a one on one scenario, to further explain what they should do in certain situations, and why they should do it. An example of this would be if a player stops on the wrong foot, meaning he is facing the boards, and not the play. If a player favors stopping on a certain foot, their skating ability will not improve. I would use that one on one time to explain this so they understand why I am telling them to stop on the correct side, facing the play and not the boards. That experience was very beneficial to me and Coach Rob taught me a great deal about coaching travel ice hockey.

Naturally, when I moved to Slippery Rock, I wanted to continue coaching. I found that opportunity when my ice hockey teammate Matt invited me to coach with his old high school team. I jumped on the opportunity to help coach and get on the ice with this group of high schoolers, because high school is an ideal age to teach sports. The players seem to have a stronger desire to learn. The team consists of nineteen players. Five of which are freshmen, three sophomores, eight juniors, and three seniors. I’ve been working alongside coach Matt Vicine with the goaltenders on the team. One of the three seniors is the starting goalie, Cam. I’ve been working very close with Cam on his lateral movement and getting up and down quicker. It’s easy for me to help goalies because I used to be a goalie, and beside that I get to shoot at the goalie in specific spots, and watch his movements as a player, as opposed to a coach on the bench. Beside working with Cam, it’s also very rewarding to watch the players come together and build chemistry.

I’ve been coaching with this team since September of 2014. Unfortunately I have not been able to make it to any of the games due to my ice hockey schedule. The practices I have been at are very rewarding. I get to practice my coaching skills while at the same time helping young hockey players mature and be ready for higher levels of hockey. I myself played hockey in high school, travel hockey at the level of AA, and junior hockey at level A, tier III. I hope to continue coaching throughout my life and I will be able to own a junior hockey team one day, and be the head coach of it at the same time.

Bayou football

The website is inviting with advertisements of gambling and football images.
There is also a count down to game day which builds suspense. Email list Coupled with social media advertisements keep fans involved and help them feel closer to the team. These tactics create a mindset for the consumer that associates many things with Bayou football. The consumer associates things such as Facebook, Twitter, gambling, and sport, among other thoughts, these can leave a positive impression on the reader.

Office of Career Education and Development

The presentation last Monday from Jessica Schwabenbauer and John Snyder was very helpful for students that are undecided in their journey through college. The office of career education and development also helps students in different ways. The resources they give for students include job research, marketing skills, internships, and advice on future classes and current scholastic situations. They can also provide mock interviews for students in need of interview strategies for future reference. The office of career education and development also holds job fairs and major and minor fairs, and a career exploration fair. These fairs are helpful in showing students all the options that are available to them in ways other then furthering their scholastic education.
Jessica and John also provided resources for students in the form of the two websites O-net, and Focus. The Focus website helps students discover potential career paths in the form of surveys to find out strong suits and weak points in the students skill set. Then, upon completion of the survey the student will be provided with a list of potential career options that fit the specifically. The website O-net is very similar to focus, except this website goes even further and shows you potential wages, salary, skills, and education needed for the jobs you were matched up with on focus.
This was an important class for students undecided in their future endeavors. Me, as a sport management major I am set up to graduate and become a coach. When I used focus it told me my future job should be a general manager. That is right in my alley and definitely a possible job for me. Over all I enjoyed the class and it was beneficial to use the focus program.
