Parents can make or break a child's sporting experience
Las Vegas Review-Journal
Longtime youth coach Ashton Cave calls them "nightmare parents," those overzealous grown-ups who can put a damper on a baseball game, a soccer match or any other youth sporting event quicker than a lightning storm with softball-sized hail. Fact is, when a child signs up for a sport, parents join the roster, too. And however the season goes, it will be up to parents to help kids through the up-and-down, win-and-lose realities of sport, help them to maintain perspective and then help them to enjoy the experience.

Fun runners sent extra 3K when 10K race marshal abandons post
The Telegraph
In raising funds for the British Heart Foundation, charity runners taking part in a 10-kilometer race had already gone the extra mile. But by the end of the event, hundreds of them had gone an extra two miles, after a route marshal caused "mayhem" by disappearing. The first 300 of the 1,200 runners taking part in the Bournemouth Bay Run went the wrong way as a result, running more than 3 kilometers further than they should have done and, in some cases, crossing the finishing line in tears.

Why don't youth sports offer equal time for all players?
The Washington Post
PT ... minutes ... at-bats. It's called different things in different sports, but it’s all the same: playing time — that's when a player is in the game and not stuck on the bench. Playing time is important to every player. Everyone, whether a kid on a recreation team or an all-pro playing in front of millions on TV, wants to play.

How a Texas football coach saved another's life
Bleacher Report
Though the world may disagree, Matt Beeler doesn't consider himself a hero. He may be the only one. Particularly as he continues to rest up from one of the most unselfish acts of the year. On March 26, Beeler, a high school football assistant coach at Houston's Cypress Ridge High School, gave 63 percent of his liver to fellow coach John McWilliams, who suffers from familial transthyretin amyloidosis, a hereditary disease causing buildup of abnormal deposits of the amyloid protein on organs.

Could a dose of nature be just what the doctor ordered?
American Institute of Biological Sciences via ScienceDaily
Numerous studies over the past 30 years have linked exposure to nature with improved human health and well-being. These findings are of growing importance: In the near future, 70 percent of the world's population will live in cities, where they will face a rising tide of lifestyle-related disease. Still, little is known about the mechanisms underlying the nature-health connection, and confusion awaits those who would transform existing findings into action.

Tax on junk food may ignite new health trend
By Archita Datta Majumdar
A Native American community just enacted a landmark decision to fight obesity and diabetes, two of the major reasons for death in America today. In recent years, multiple states and cities have attempted to boost public health by enforcing a soda tax — and most have failed. For the Navajo Nation Council, this clearly wasn't enough. Now the community of 250,000 people living in Utah, Arizona and New Mexico will see increased taxes for all kinds of junk foods that have "minimal-to-no nutritional value."
