Officials, coaches still support sport
When a former high school gymnast in Sioux Falls filed a negligence lawsuit against her coaches, her school and a Sioux Falls training facility last fall, it cast light on issues regarding the safety of athletes as well as the vulnerability of coaches.
Researchers at the Oregon National Primate Research Center at Oregon Health & Science University ( OHSU ) have discovered one key gene that appears to control how stem cells become various kinds of brain cells.
The finding has significant implications for the study of Parkinson’s disease, brain and spinal cord injury, and other conditions or diseases that might be combated by replacing lost or damaged brain cells.
The research is published in the journal Developmental Biology.
Thomas “Jay” Harn is just 16, but he’s had a passion for hunting since he was barely kindergarten age.
On Nov. 5, the Banks County High School student was doing what he loved best, deer hunting in Middle Georgia’s Hancock County.
Then one misstep changed his life forever. Leaning out of a deer stand, he somehow fell forward, somersaulted in the air and landed on his back more than 10 feet below.
