  1. Thanks. I'm getting stronger every day but I don't bounce as well as I used to. I hope to be back playing again soon.
  2. Man, it stinks I'm going to have to miss this OP. This is an awesome site! Health issues will not allow it at this time.
  3. Actually, after reading over both the medical authorization form and the temporary guardianship forms, the temporary guardianship authorizes for medical care so that should be the only form you really need. I would recommend the information form as it has a place for medications and allergies. Also, make sure the minor has either his insurance card or a copy. Just in case.

  6. I realize we have some real world medical personnel on the boards, but I have yet to run across a post telling people what to look for in relation to heat related injuries. With the upcoming summer season, I decided to post a quick first aid for such issues. This is not to replace emergency personnel, it is only a guide on what to watch for in your teammates. Remember, if they get to the point they quit sweating, they are in major trouble. Get help, QUICK! HEAT EMERGENCIES (HYPERTHERMIA) DEFINITION •Perspiration is the body’s main method of regulating its temperature. As sweat evaporates off the skin heat is taken with it, as a result cooling down the body. Without this method the body would quickly over heat and the person would die. Anything that impairs body temperature regulation is hazardous. • There are 3 levels of heat emergencies: heat cramps, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke. CAUSES & PREVENTION •Exercising in hot humid and/or polluted weather. •Becoming dehydrated. •Drinking alcohol, caffeinated, or carbonated drinks (contributes to dehydration). •Over using saunas, whirlpools, and warm environments such as gyms, aerobic classes, and stuffy rooms. HEAT CRAMPS WARNING SIGNS •Painful muscular involuntary contraction. •Sweating or moist skin. • Tired, irritable, and thirsty. HELPING •Removing them from the source of heat. •Gently stretch/massage affected area. •Slowly rehydrate with water, juice, or sport drinks. •Rest for several minutes or even a couple of hours. •Avoid alcohol, caffeinated and/or carbonated drinks as they will only make the condition worse by promoting dehydration. HEAT EXHAUSTION WARNING SIGNS • Sweating. • Tired. • Irritable. • Thirsty. • Lethargic. • Slight headache. • Nausea. • Dizzy/weak. • May have slightly elevated body temperature. HELPING •Remove from source of heat. •Slowly rehydrate by drinking water, juice, or sport drinks. •Rest is very important to prevent a re-occurrence. •Remove sweaty clothing. •Fan or gently cool the skin with cool towels or ice packs. •Avoid alcohol, caffeinated and/or carbonated drinks as they will only makethe condition worse by promoting dehydration. •If vomiting occurs you should activate EMS. HEAT STROKE WARNING SIGNS •Elevated body temperature. •Very tired/weak. •Sweating may stop - this is not a good sign. •Severe headache. •Red hot dry skin. •Rapid, weak pulse becoming irregular, rapid breathing, or reduced/absent vital signs (consciousness, breathing, pulse). HELPING •Remove from heat source. •Place in recovery position. (lying on their side supported by their upper leg) •Activate 9-1-1 ASAP. •Remove sweaty clothing. •Fan or gently cool the skin with cool towels or ice packs. •Do not douse with cold water - this may cause shock. •At this point it is too late to give fluids by mouth and it may induce vomiting.

  10. If they are looking into natural resources, Arkansas could be a viable contributor. Not only does it have oil, the lifeblood of the world, it is also the largest producer of rice not to mention it is "the duck capitol of the world". It would also make a good bridge between Oklahoma and Louisiana, making for a more secure trade route from the Gulf of Mexico to CoST states. Factoring in its manufacturing abilities (ie. Remington and the wind turbine companies) it could make for a strong alliance.

  12. Aww come on guys. Let's just start using potato cannons. They're alot of fun and run on hairspray. Or better yet, my brother used to have a Winger. It was a water balloon launcher that was essentially a giant slingshot. It took 3 people to work it but could launch a water balloon over a hundred yards. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
