In an Oct. 3 San Francisco Examiner story on the men’s soccer team,
coach Joe Hunter and players discuss the team’s newest recruits.
Although SF State has a history of recruiting mainly junior college transfers,
Hunter started bringing freshmen onto the team three years ago. Young
and brand-new to collegiate soccer, the freshmen are known as the "spiciness" of
the team. "The freshmen players are a lot more prepared for the
college game than they used to be," said Hunter.
Following the Chicago Marathon, where runners faced record high temperatures,
the Chicago Tribune featured Professor of Kinesiology Mark Gorelick
and Kinesiology Lecturer Anne Thilges as experts on the physiological
effects of hot weather on marathon runners’ performance. "Running
a long distance in heat hits the body with a sort of double whammy," said
Thilges. As athletes work harder, Gorelick noted, blood that should
be sent to the skin's surface to cool through sweating is instead used
to keep the muscles working, leading the body to sacrifice its ability
to reduce its core temperature.
Career Counselor Alan Fisk is featured in an ABC 7 news broadcast about
Stumps 'R' Us, an organization for people missing one or more limbs.
Fisk, a member of the organization who was born without arms or legs,
said, "What attracted me [to the group] was the name: Stumps 'R'
Us. I thought it was very funny." People in the group celebrate
their abilities with humor and a positive outlook on life. "I
put on pants the same way other people do; I just have to put my legs
on with the pants," Fisk said. "I figure, I’m having
a good morning if I put my arms and legs on the right way."
