In the United States, the annual incidence of sports-related concussion is estimated at 300,000. In Canada, it is estimated to be 30,000. Estimates regarding the likelihood of an athlete in a contact sport experiencing a concussion may be as high as 19% per season.
It is becoming exceedingly difficult to detect a concussion because symptoms may not become apparent to the athlete, trainer, coach or medical professional for hours or days. Sport needs to remove the guess work on whether an athlete is concussed. Remove the athlete’s decision to cover up a concussion.
Cerora, which is based at Ben Franklin TechVentures, recently obtained early financing that will help it improve its MindReader device. The technology is designed to pick up even mild concussions, which MRIs and CT scans can’t diagnose, Simon said. Between 85 to 90 percent of all concussions and traumatic brain injuries are mild so many go undiagnosed, Simon said.

The traditional functions of law enforcement, and other emergency services, have not changed. Creating and enforcing conditions for public safety; investigating crimes; conducting rescue operations; responding to natural and man-made disasters; and pursuing and apprehending criminals -- these all remain central law enforcement and public safety themes. What has changed dramatically is the technology available to achieve these traditional ends. Geographical software to provide context to data; real-time video from street cameras and smartphones; sensors for navigation inside buildings; augmented reality for contextual, field-of-view information; lasers for 3D imaging; facial recognition and biometrics for identification; big data analytics for forensics -- all are in various stages of development and adoption. In this radio show, Kishore Jethanandani will discuss these and other technologies, and the effectiveness, safety, and speed of law enforcement and emergency response.

The guys are reunited for the 1st time this season and want to hear from YOU! Call 347-945-7086 as Big Steve (@BigSteve79) and Jerz (@nicethegr34t) discuss the turnaround performances from week 1 of Jay Cutler and the BEARS defense against San Fransisco and preview next the Monday Night matchup with the New York Jets. The BEARS were hit hard with injury news as cornerback Charles Tillman was lost for the season with a torn triceps (the same one that ended his season last year) forcing some of the BEARS younger players to step in and contribute. Chris Conte got his second interception in as many weeks but is nursing a sore shoulder (the same one he had surgery on this spring) and defensive tackle Jeremiah Ratliff exited Sunday Night's contest with a concussion leaving both of their statuses up in the air. Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery turned in gutsy performances and look to heal up as they face a Jets secondary that id trying to find it's way. 347-945-7086 is the number that gets you on! www.sportzfam.wordpress.com and www.sportzfam.net keep you up to date with what's going on with the FAM!
Welcome to another episode of Afronerd Radio's Mid Week in Review! Join Dburt and Captain Kirk this Wednesday (7:30pm EST) as they check their "tricorders" and extrapolate the latest news events that have occurred during this past (mid) week. Our sensors are detecting a forthcoming discussion on the following topics: yet more NFL shenanigans (Adrian Peterson child abuse allegations; Rihanna vs the NFL; sponsors vs the NFL) ; a new biography is released detailing the trials, tribulations and triumphs of Dr. Bill Cosby; progressive filmmaker/documentarian, Michael Moore posits that President Obama's legacy will be solely related to being the first Black president; Dburt has concerns about scientific experimentation involving human brain cells being implanted in mice with claims of increased intelligence; some Chicagoans are protesting against police shootings of three Black men in just as many weeks (no protests for the more frequent non police related gun violence though?); the story of Django actress, Daniele Watts reportedly being profiled and handcuffed by LAPD for publicly kissing her White boyfriend may be falling apart based upon further scrutiny and lastly, Academy award winning actress, Lupita Nyongo's message of being comfortable in one's own skin to the Sesame Street audience makes her even more endearing. Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.
The professional leagues of many sports are not necessarily good places to find role models for young children.
The way that some pros handle their injuries, including concussions, doesn’t in many ways promote what many parents, teachers and communities are trying to instill in our youth today.
We usually rely upon the concussion knowledge of the athlete in order to recognize when something is wrong. However, many (up to 70% of high school football players) will not admit when they are concussed. Some will continue to play and unfortunately for some, they may unknowingly suffer from either post concussion syndrome or second impact syndrome.
Don Brady, PhD, PsyD, NCSP is a licensed clinical and school psychologist. He has presented papers on subtle brain injury for over 20 years and has personal experience with concussion.
We are joined by Don Brady LIVE at BEYONDtheCheers on blogtalkradio on Wednesday, September 17th at 7PM EST.

Concussions are completely different than other injuries. When you facture a limb, there's recovery time gauged by how you feel and your ability to return to activity. Most injuries require rest or immobilization, however some activity may be possible with limitations.
Concussions are an invisible injury unlike any other.
Wendy Clawsey suffers from post concussion syndrome. She can't completely escape the effects of what happened on the ski slopes nearly six years ago. There are many others, like her, who continue to suffer. Wendy has authored a book called, “Concussion” to share her invisible illness and the process of fighting her way back to full recovery.
Wendy joins us LIVE at BEYONDtheCheers on blogtalkradio on Wed., Sept. 10th at 7PM EST. Listen Fridays at NOON to our repeat broadcast on AMFM247 or anytime at iHeart Radio iTunes and Stitcher.com.
Dr. Kevin Passero and his special guest Dr. Michael Lewis will be discussing the benefits of omega-3s for athletes – helping to prevent brain injury, and supporting recovery, if injured.
Dr. Michael Lewis is the President of the Brain Health Education and Research Institute, which he founded upon retiring from the US Army after a distinguished 31-year career. Dr. Lewis has years of experience developing programs for the military on the use of omega-3 fatty acids and traumatic brain injury and suicide prevention. His work has been featured on CNN's Sanjay Gupta, MD show, numerous radio and television spots, and around the world at scientific and nutritional conferences, where his insights and pioneering work have impacted thousands of lives.
Our guest is Chris Seeger, Co Lead Counsel in the Concussion legal action against the NFL. Join us as we discuss the NFL concussion settlement and get some of the info YOU NEED TO KNOW in order to make the best decision for yourself and your loved ones!
From the Seeger Weiss website......."More recently, the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania appointed Mr. Seeger in 2012 to lead the highly visible and contentious multidistrict litigation against the National Football League arising out of concussion-related injuries sustained by thousands of former NFL players over the past several decades. In the face of significant legal and scientific obstacles, Mr. Seeger brought all of his experience and diplomacy to bear as chief negotiator in crafting a $765 million global settlement for thousands of former NFL athletes in August of 2013."
The Real Football Wives (and Lives) program does not endorse any particular position in the concussion lawsuit. We believe that everyone involved should be as informed as possible, possess the facts and make the right decision as it applies to their own situation.
We have planned to produce our program with two or three guests per 75 to 90 minute episode. Due to the importance of this matter and the upcoming deadline for retired players to respond, this conversation and episode will focus exclusively on this particular discussion and our guest Mr. Chris Seeger. We will be visiting with other guests regarding this matter throughout the next two weeks.
We will not be taking phone calls during this program.
