The study, which was published in the journal Sport in Society: Cultures, Commerce, Media, Politics, tracked the growing popularity of cheerleading in the U.K. and focused on the members of four cheerleading teams.  “The participants in our study talked about flipping gender norms in cheerleading,” Dr. Amy Pressland, a co-author of the study, tells Yahoo Parenting.

  • 15/74   High School Quarterback’s Tragic Death Highlights Silent Danger of an Enlarged Spleen
    SPORTS TOPIC NEWS

    A spleen can become enlarged for many reasons, including genetic diseases, William Katkov, MD, a gastroenterologist at Providence Saint John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, Calif., tells Yahoo Health.  Here’s why that’s a problem: A person may feel better and resume their normal activities, but their enlarged spleen is more susceptible to rupturing and may no longer be protected by their ribcage, leaving it incredibly vulnerable to injury.  “An enlarged spleen is at an increased risk for rupture or injury in the setting of normal trauma, like a football game, diving into a pool, or minor car accident,” Katkov says.  While an enlarged spleen can be asymptomatic, Katkov says a person can feel uncomfortable or have a feeling of fullness in their upper abdomen on the left side.

    POLITICS TOPIC NEWS

    James Comey, the FBI director fired by Donald Trump as he investigated Trump campaign ties to Russia, is writing a book about his career and its tumultuous conclusion. The assiduous note taker has already proved himself an annoyance to the White House, leaking a memo to the press about how the president asked him to drop one aspect of his probe, fuelling allegations of obstruction of justice. As a result his agents have stoked intense interest in his book proposal which is expected to be the subject of a big money auction in the New York this week.  Comey recorded meeting because he thought Trump "might lie" 01:03 Literary circles are abuzz with speculation Mr Comey could command an eight-figure advance for his memoirs. His testimony before a Senate committee last month attracted an audience of 20 million people, who wanted to hear how the president demanded a personal oath of loyalty. Mr Comey also said he believed he was fired because he refused to end an investigation into Michael Flynn, who was forced to resign as National Security Adviser after it emerged he misled officials about earlier meetings with Russian officials. Publishers will hope Mr Comey has more headline-grabbing secrets to spill although the text will have to be vetted by the Department of Justice to prevent the release of classified material. His agents claimed he was initially reluctant to entertain offers despite the intense interest. Rather than rehashing his career, he wanted to draw on his experiences to find broader lessons on ethics and leadership, according to Matt Latimer of the Javelin agency. “It’s a book about leadership and his search for truth, informed by lessons and experiences he’s had throughout his career, including his recent experiences in the Trump administration,” he told The New York Times. “It will speak to a broader desire in our country for more ethical leadership.”

  • 53/74   Honolulu wants to ban cellphone walking. Here's 8 petty laws they could pass instead.
    POLITICS TOPIC NEWS

    If you are a human with a cell phone, odds are you've broken this law that could soon be passed in Hawaii. On Wednesday, in an extraordinarily ambitious effort to make Hawaii's streets safer, the Honolulu City Council passed a bill that prohibits pedestrians from staring down at their cell phones while crossing the street. Yes, you read that correctly. Hawaii essentially wants to prohibit people from texting and walking. HA, good luck with that. SEE ALSO: So a bunch of Twitter users actually sued Trump for blocking them As 
CNN reported, if you're caught staring at your phone, in violation of Bill 6, you could be fined anywhere from $15 to $99 unless it's a 911-worthy emergency. Sure it's in the best interest of safety, but the proposed law begs the following massive question. Q: Is this 
really necessary? 
A: Hell freaking no. According to councilman Ernie Martin, who voted against the bill, the world has other far more pressing issues that should take priority over walking and texting, like, uh, homelessness.  Rather than enforce a law, he suggests a public awareness campaign via social media. Sounds way more fun, and hey, people could even learn about it on their phones while simultaneously walking.  Not to mention, this is not a thing that's going to work. Do you think people are going to put down their phones at crosswalks and give up valuable seconds that could be spent potentially right-swiping their soulmate? No. Do you 
really think anyone is going to resist responding to Slack messages from their boss on-the-go, thereby shattering the illusion that they're already diligently working from their desks instead of running 20 minutes late? LOL good one. We text, we walk, we multi-task. Get over it. Other petty laws the world could use instead While we're on the topic of petty laws, there are SO many pieces of legislation we'd rather see passed. 
Here are eight other laws that 
should
 be enforced: 1. Don’t take up the entire sidewalk with your squad when people are trying to pass, OMG. 2. Don't you dare eat food in a way food was not intended to be eaten. (No biting string cheese, no eating pizza crust-first, no ice cubes in your cereal. JFC, people.)  3. No leaving shopping carts in parking spots like an a-hole instead of taking 40 seconds to return them. 4. Don’t stand over the yellow line at airport baggage claim. Wait for your damn luggage a respectable distance away from the belt so when you grab it you don't wind up taking out three innocent bystanders. 5. No listening to audio in public without headphones. (Same goes for having conversations on speaker phone.)  6. Thou shalt not post spoilers online. 7. You
 must clean gym equipment after sweating all over the damn place. 8. Cashiers who hand you change on top of your bills so that it inevitably slides off and embarrasses you should PAY the legal price.  What the fresh hell, Hawaii? According to 
CNN, Brandon Elefante, the Honolulu city councilman who introduced the bill, got this idea from high school students, so you know it's gotta be brilliant. "These high school groups were concerned for their peers being distracted while crossing the streets and looking at their phones instead of looking both ways," Elefante said. "The advancement of technology can sometimes be a distraction and cause people to not pay attention." Since the city council successfully passed the bill, the fate of cellphone addicts in Hawaii now rests in the hands of Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell. He has 10 business days to make this final life-changing decision. Choose wisely, sir.   WATCH: A one-wheeled electric scooter you'll want to show off

    New images of North Korea's main nuclear facility show that the isolated regime has apparently produced more plutonium for its weapons programme than previously thought, a US monitor said, as tensions soar over Pyongyang's ambitions.  The respected 38 North website, a monitoring project linked to Johns Hopkins university, said Friday that thermal imagery of the Yongbyon nuclear complex appeared to show that Pyongyang had reprocessed spent fuel rods at least twice between last September and June this year.  'The Radiochemical Laboratory operated intermittently and there have apparently been at least two unreported reprocessing campaigns to produce an undetermined amount of plutonium that can further increase North Korea's nuclear weapons stockpile,' it said.

Magnetic fields from the north and south poles pull the particles into the upper or occasionally lower atmosphere, where they collide with neutral particles.  The result? A majestic, glowing sky. Oftentimes, the northern lights are only visible at higher latitudes (like in Scandinavia during the summer), but occasionally — as is the case this time, apparently — they'll reach lower down the northern hemisphere.  The southern hemisphere can get light shows too, but those southern lights are called aurora australis.  If you look at the National Weather Service's map of the upcoming aurora borealis, you can see if the lights are expected to be visible from where you are. Parts of New England, the upper Midwest, the northwest, and Canada should definitely be able to see the lights on Sunday.   WATCH: These tiny foods look just like the real thing

    SCIENCE TOPIC NEWS

    The total solar eclipse in August will only darken skies above parts of the U.S. in its line of totality for barely 3 minutes, but for that brief time, people are shelling out big money for hotels, campsites, cruise ships, and more. SEE ALSO: New solar eclipse simulator shows you what to expect this summer On Aug. 21, the first total solar eclipse will cross over the entire continental U.S. since 1918. This is a big deal for astronomers, scientists, and everyone else eager to see the moon pass across the sun.  Hotels, home rental sites like Airbnb and Craigslist, and tourism boards in places geographically lucky to fall along the eclipse's path are capitalizing on the rare solar event that's attracting visitors from all over.   The total solar eclipse's path of totality.Image: nasa$2,000 for 3 minutes Craigslist and Airbnb listings are out of control for the solar eclipse, stuffed with overpriced student apartments and backyard spaces.  Even Oregon's state parks are going for ridiculous prices with many camp sites completely booked. The state parks foundation auctioned off 30 additional campsites that went went for $60,000. That's more than $300 per person if every campsite has six people. A typical campsite any other time of the year is $20 a night. In the Corvallis and Bend areas in Oregon, camp sites and RV stays in backyards and open spaces are going for $100 to pitch a tent for the night and $200 for an RV site. Another Oregon campsite is even pricier with $200 nightly rates to pitch a tent and $250 for an RV site. A private Oregon ranch, meanwhile, is charging $1,500 to bring an RV to the property. Airbnb has 31,000 guests who've booked stays for the night of Aug. 20 ahead of the big day in places on the eclipse path, a company spokesperson said. Nashville and Charleston, South Carolina, are hosting the biggest numbers with nearly 8,000 and more than 2,300 bookings, respectively. At least in Lincoln City, Oregon, where the eclipse begins, 85 listings were still available at time of writing. At other spots across the path it's getting tougher (and pricier) to even find somewhere to stay. Some of the priciest Airbnb listings near the start of the eclipse in Madras, Oregon, are going for upwards of $2,000 a night. A room in a small town in Oregon is available for $500. The per night rates at a house rental in Casper, Wyoming is $8,000, while tent camping on a 3-acre lot in Idaho Falls, Idaho is $200.  This is getting out of hand.  
Unlikely hot spots  Image: NASA’s Scientific Visualization StudioTo get a sense of eclipse mania look no further than Carbondale, Illinois. The small university town is all in for the eclipse. The southern Illinois city happens to be where the eclipse will last the longest: a full 2 minutes and 38 seconds. Jannika Lopez, the eclipse assistant coordinator from the city's tourism bureau, said the university, Southern Illinois University (SIU), has been preparing for Aug. 21 for the past three years. Now the city is planning events for the expected 55,000 viewers. The city usually has a population of 26,000. "For us we’re not terrified or nervous," Lopez said during a phone call. Instead, city officials are framing the influx of sky-gazers as a college graduation weekend — times three. "We can handle it." SIU is hosting a ticketed event with NASA broadcasting live from the stadium and Bill Nye will check in on the Jumbotron. In downtown Carbondale, the city is turning off all the lights even though it will be early afternoon, 1:20 pm CT, when the total eclipse arrives. Only a few hotels have availability left more than a month out.  Get ready for the August 21, 2017 solar eclipse! Find out what you'll see based on location.

Ozzy Osbourne is performing his '80s hit 
Bark the Moon at peak totality at a nearby music festival aptly named Moonstock. Moving eastward, the entire state of Tennessee
 is gearing up for the eclipse even if only parts of the state is on the path.  Kevin Triplett, commissioner of tourist development for the state, said in a phone call that his department has been planning for the big day for over a year. As many as 1.4 million people are expected to attend events throughout the state. A viewing event in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park sold out almost instantaneously.  "Everyone is getting the eclipse bug," Triplett said. The eclipse ends near Charleston, South Carolina, so the southern city has jumped on the eclipse bandwagon as well for its minute and a half of darkness with hotel packages and viewing events.  Eclipse overload on the cheap It's not just expensive house rentals and overpriced campsites for the rare eclipse sighting; there's also a special Royal Caribbean eclipse cruise for $1,000 and a $4,000 five-day Oregon getaway with 
Packing for Mars author Mary Roach and UC Berkeley astronomer Steven Beckwith. But for the rest of us far from the path of totality or stuck in an office on a Monday, the internet offers a plethora of ways to see what's happening up in the sky. Instead of heading to Carbondale with the rest of eclipse-obsessed tourists, you can stream the peak totality or simulate what will happen — no camping or $200 Airbnb fees required. Even if you're not right on the path or nearby, anywhere in continental America will experience at least a partial eclipse — so it's still worth it to step outside and safely observe the phenomenon.

    The total solar eclipse in August will only darken skies above parts of the U.S. in its line of totality for barely 3 minutes, but for that brief time, people are shelling out big money for hotels, campsites, cruise ships, and more. SEE ALSO: New solar eclipse simulator shows you what to expect this summer On Aug. 21, the first total solar eclipse will cross over the entire continental U.S. since 1918. This is a big deal for astronomers, scientists, and everyone else eager to see the moon pass across the sun.  Hotels, home rental sites like Airbnb and Craigslist, and tourism boards in places geographically lucky to fall along the eclipse's path are capitalizing on the rare solar event that's attracting visitors from all over.  The total solar eclipse's path of totality.Image: nasa$2,000 for 3 minutes Craigslist and Airbnb listings are out of control for the solar eclipse, stuffed with overpriced student apartments and backyard spaces.  Even Oregon's state parks are going for ridiculous prices with many camp sites completely booked. The state parks foundation auctioned off 30 additional campsites that went went for $60,000. That's more than $300 per person if every campsite has six people. A typical campsite any other time of the year is $20 a night. In the Corvallis and Bend areas in Oregon, camp sites and RV stays in backyards and open spaces are going for $100 to pitch a tent for the night and $200 for an RV site. Another Oregon campsite is even pricier with $200 nightly rates to pitch a tent and $250 for an RV site. A private Oregon ranch, meanwhile, is charging $1,500 to bring an RV to the property. Airbnb has 31,000 guests who've booked stays for the night of Aug. 20 ahead of the big day in places on the eclipse path, a company spokesperson said. Nashville and Charleston, South Carolina, are hosting the biggest numbers with nearly 8,000 and more than 2,300 bookings, respectively. At least in Lincoln City, Oregon, where the eclipse begins, 85 listings were still available at time of writing. At other spots across the path it's getting tougher (and pricier) to even find somewhere to stay. Some of the priciest Airbnb listings near the start of the eclipse in Madras, Oregon, are going for upwards of $2,000 a night. A room in a small town in Oregon is available for $500. The per night rates at a house rental in Casper, Wyoming is $8,000, while tent camping on a 3-acre lot in Idaho Falls, Idaho is $200.  This is getting out of hand.  Unlikely hot spots Image: NASA’s Scientific Visualization StudioTo get a sense of eclipse mania look no further than Carbondale, Illinois. The small university town is all in for the eclipse. The southern Illinois city happens to be where the eclipse will last the longest: a full 2 minutes and 38 seconds. Jannika Lopez, the eclipse assistant coordinator from the city's tourism bureau, said the university, Southern Illinois University (SIU), has been preparing for Aug. 21 for the past three years. Now the city is planning events for the expected 55,000 viewers. The city usually has a population of 26,000. "For us we’re not terrified or nervous," Lopez said during a phone call. Instead, city officials are framing the influx of sky-gazers as a college graduation weekend — times three. "We can handle it." SIU is hosting a ticketed event with NASA broadcasting live from the stadium and Bill Nye will check in on the Jumbotron. In downtown Carbondale, the city is turning off all the lights even though it will be early afternoon, 1:20 pm CT, when the total eclipse arrives. Only a few hotels have availability left more than a month out. Get ready for the August 21, 2017 solar eclipse! Find out what you'll see based on location. Watch: https://t.co/cUZHxm8lcX #Eclipse2017 pic.twitter.com/rPBrm2qPw6 — NASA (@NASA) June 21, 2017 More big names outside of pop science are coming to the Midwest town for the natural wonder. Ozzy Osbourne is performing his '80s hit Bark the Moon at peak totality at a nearby music festival aptly named Moonstock. Moving eastward, the entire state of Tennessee is gearing up for the eclipse even if only parts of the state is on the path.  Kevin Triplett, commissioner of tourist development for the state, said in a phone call that his department has been planning for the big day for over a year. As many as 1.4 million people are expected to attend events throughout the state. A viewing event in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park sold out almost instantaneously.  "Everyone is getting the eclipse bug," Triplett said. The eclipse ends near Charleston, South Carolina, so the southern city has jumped on the eclipse bandwagon as well for its minute and a half of darkness with hotel packages and viewing events.  Eclipse overload on the cheap It's not just expensive house rentals and overpriced campsites for the rare eclipse sighting; there's also a special Royal Caribbean eclipse cruise for $1,000 and a $4,000 five-day Oregon getaway with Packing for Mars author Mary Roach and UC Berkeley astronomer Steven Beckwith. But for the rest of us far from the path of totality or stuck in an office on a Monday, the internet offers a plethora of ways to see what's happening up in the sky. Instead of heading to Carbondale with the rest of eclipse-obsessed tourists, you can stream the peak totality or simulate what will happen — no camping or $200 Airbnb fees required. Even if you're not right on the path or nearby, anywhere in continental America will experience at least a partial eclipse — so it's still worth it to step outside and safely observe the phenomenon.
