    Street image of 1080 Bowdoin Avenue (initially 1000 Bowdoin Avenue) where Paula Stuart-Warren lived. Also in this image is Paula Stuart Warren\u27s father, the family dog (Barney, a St. Bernard), and a Cottonwood tree on the corner of her house\u27s lot. The Cottonwood tree was where Paula would sit and read or play dolls with a neighbor who lived two doors to the right. Paula\u27s dad threatened to cut down the tree because Paula was allergic to it, but she wouldn\u27t let him. The city finally cut it down during the 2010\u27s. The house was one of the first built on the street.

    Analysis of Orthosis Materials in Treatment of Symptoms of Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction (PTTD)

    No full text
    Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction (PTTD) is a foot and ankle condition where the posterior tibialis tendon loses varying degrees of function, potentially causing a person’s medial longitudinal arch (MLA) to collapse and develop pes planus or pes valgus (flat foot deformity, flat foot deformity with valgus hindfoot tilt; Yao et al., 2015). PTTD has been established as one of the main causes of pes planus development in adults (Gómez-Jurado et al., 2021). While research studies show that foot and ankle foot orthoses are effective non-surgical treatment options for Stage I & II PTTD, the authors of these studies barely describe what kind of materials were used within their studies to manufacture the foot orthoses used. The purpose of this graduate project is to discover what combination of orthotic top cover materials and a polypropylene base layer will provide optimal patient treatment and recovery outcomes for those diagnosed with Stage I & II PTTD. PTTD was chosen due to the gaps within the literature on selecting orthosis materials for specifically treating PTTD

    Music Genre Selection on Enjoyment and Performance in CrossFit Athletes

    No full text
    High intensity interval training (HIIT) has become one of the most popular fitness trends across the world and CrossFit is considered an alternative HIIT workout. There are studies that have shown that enjoyment and participation in exercise decrease during HIIT sessions. Music has been shown that when played during exercise, it can prompt positive emotions and heighten compliance. The objective of this study is to compare two music genres, electronic dance music (EDM) and hard rock, and if they positively influence enjoyment and performance. Fifteen experienced CrossFit athletes will be recruited to participate in two exercise sessions. One session would play EDM and the second session would play hard rock. Performance will be measured with the Borg Modified 11-point RPE Scale and the Physical Activity Enjoyment Scale (PACES) will be used to measure enjoyment. Results should show that either or both music genres positively improved performance and/or enjoyment, negatively improved performance and/or enjoyment, or does not affect either variable. This study can help facilitate group CrossFit classes by improving their athletes’ mood and performance based on the type of music that is played during each session. Keywords: CrossFit, music genre, high-intensity interval training, hard rock, ED
