New York Daily News
New York City would have some of the strictest youth football regulations in the country — including requiring a doctor at all games — under a City Council bill that aims to curb concussions. The legislation would also force all youth leagues to have either a doctor or an athletic trainer present at every practice.

High schools seek a safer path back from concussion
National Public Radio
Nearly half of all reported sports concussions occur during a high school football game or practice. And even when injured bodies are ready to get back on the field, injured brains might not be ready to return to class. But how long should these student athletes be out of school? A day? A week? A month? The latest research supports the idea of a gradual return to class and other activities, in a flexible program that's tailored to each student's injury and recovery from symptoms, rather than a blanket insistence on strict isolation and total rest for everyone.

How a dentist who runs late with patients can get back on time
Dental Practice Management
Dr. Drax loves talking to his patients. In fact, he thinks this is the reason for his success and why he gets so many word-of-mouth referrals. The team agrees that he is personable and charming with his patients, but also that he is not too considerate of his team because they have to schedule around him. It is especially hard on Ling, the hygienist, who is stuck in the room while the dentist chats about skiing and restoring his old muscle cars. Ling is always running late as well because the doctor can't help socializing.

Handling angry patients in the dental office
Dentistry IQ
Lauren Zagardo writes: A few weeks ago, I had a patient come into my office with her child, completely belligerent and demanding treatment be performed on her child. After realizing that the problem was due to the child's braces and there was nothing anybody in my office can do, the mother went off the deep end, going after my assistant and my manager, yelling and cussing. Being the only one in the office who did not speak to her during this incident, I'm now the middleman between the angry patient, her daughter and the office.

'Friday Night Tikes' documentary tackles heart of youth sports: Parents
The Post Game
In 1990, Buzz Bissinger introduced the world to the Permian Panthers with his book, "Friday Night Lights: A Town, a Team, and a Dream." In 2004 the film version was released, and two years later, a fictional TV series helped turn Smash Williams, Tim Riggins and Matt Saracen into household names. The book, movie and TV show all showed just how big Texas high school football is. But the fervor for the game begins even earlier, and that's where "Friday Night Tykes" comes in.

Nothing can demoralize a motivated team faster than a disorganized meeting. However, a well-run meeting has the opposite effect — it invigorates the team, reinforcing their belief in what they're doing, and builds greater esprit de corps. The following tips can help you hold more productive meetings.
