    Predicting the future effects of the movie Concussion on the NFL

    in Sports

    With the release of the movie Concussion on Christmas Day, is the controversial movie the beginning of the end of the NFL and football as we know it?  The Core Show panelists for Diehard Sports Radio will discuss that.  You may be surprised by the answer.  We will also discuss the team that is in the drivers' seat in the suddenly messy AFC and who that teams' greatest threat is.  Then, we'll react to the performance of Johnny Manziel against the San Francisco 49ers; the 49ers black hole of nothingness; why the Minnesota Vikings are the team of the future and why the future is not now.  In the Ramscentric segment, members of the Facebook page LA RAMS vs St Louis Rams will discuss the recent revelation that relocation committee chairperson, Jerry Richardson, installed Disney CEO Bob Iger into the Carson project. 

    In the Lakersfocus/ NBA segment, we'll discuss Byron Scott taking the leash off the youngsters and allowing D'Angelo Russell to play more in crunch time thanks to Kobe Bryant no less.

    Baseball-wise, we'll discuss the 2 primary formulas for running a Major League Baseball club in a non-salary cap league and how those formulas relate to what the Los Angeles Dodgers, Arizona Diamondbacks and Chicago Cubs are doing during the offseason.  It will prove to be a bit of a wakeup call for impatient Dodgers' diehards. 

    As Christmas and New Years Day get closer, the sports stories and discussions get hotter.  Happy holidays, diehards. Enjoy the show! Thank you for listening.

    Research Methods in Criminal Justice – Nonreactive Research

    in Training

    Brought to you by The American Public Safety Training Institute (TAPSTI) www.tapsti.org, this 2 hour session will review the work of Dr. Peter Kraska and Dr. W. Lawrence Neuman and their excellent textbook entitled “Criminal Justice and Criminology Research Methods” (2012, 2nd ed.).  The subject matter for this seminar is Nonreactive Research and this type of research is widely used in crime and justice studies. The main way we do this research is by taking advantage of the huge amounts of data, in many forms, we continue accumulating. The authors of our reference text speak of federal crime statistics (UCR, NCVS), the, "General Social Survey, police and prison records, video-surveillance data, existing self-report data, incarceration trends, drug use statistics, documents concerning prisoners released from death row, and court proceedings documents" as well as, "media articles, Web sites, television shows, roadside memorials, hospital records, census reports, and economic data " (Kraska & Neuman, 2012, p. 206). This seminar explains how to use all the data which your department already has collected for you.

    Play Ball? Concussion in Young Athletes on Recovery Now with Kim Justus

    in Current Events

    David Kracke says, "I have developed an expertise in understanding and utilizing the legislative process for the greater good. Two areas of my legislative work stand out: Laws requiring mandatory concussion education and return to play protocols for our young athletes, and laws requiring protection of our environment."

    In 2008, David was part of the team that wrote and passed Max's Law, which along with Zach's Law in Washington, was the first law in the nation to require concussion education for high school coaches.  There is now a Max's Law equivalent in all fifty states.

    In 2012, working with Dr. Jim Chesnutt and Senator Elizabeth Steiner-Hayward, David wrote what is now known as Jenna's Law.  Jenna's Law promises to reduce the incidence of SIS and to allow all young athletes in Oregon to fully recover from a concussion before returning to play.

    Mr. Kracke is a member of the Board of Directors of the Oregon Concussion Awareness Management Program (OCAMP),  now sits on the advisory board of the Brain Injury Alliance of Oregon.
    Mr. Kracke is a skilled litigator who for over twenty-four years has successfully litigated cased in the Tri-County area.  He is recognized as a leading advocate of Plaintiff's rights in the Portland area, and has been interviewed by local and national media for his opinions on various legal and policy issues. david@craignicholslaw.com
