    • Tyler, I really enjoyed reading this post. This is very relevant today in football and other many sports. There are so many people who have suffered from concussions and have been impaired for the rest of their life. This is a great way to spread awareness. The photos were also a great touch. Here is this paper that has some great information on the long term consequences: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3208826/

    • Tyler,
      I really enjoyed your discussion about concussions. This post hit close to home and is a very important topic to me. When I was in third grade, my dad fell off his bike and hit his head. From that, he got a traumatic brain injury. He was in the ICU for 2 weeks and when I went to visit him, he didn’t know who I was. Like me, there are so many people that TBI’s have affected. There were a couple of things that I thought were really interesting. I loved all the stats that were stated in the 5th paragraph. I never knew “21% of high school only players were reported to have been diagnosed with CTE, and 91% of college players were also diagnosed with CTE.” Learning that was quite terrifying. I also loved that you took into account the family of those who have had concussions and brain injury’s. I think you had all the information needed to really shed light on this scary topic. Here is an article about TBI’s and what they entail. http://www.traumaticbraininjury.com/understanding-tbi/what-is-traumatic-brain-injury/ I thought that you might think that it was interesting! I loved your discussion!!

    • Hi Tyler, I was really fascinated with your post. It was very informative and highlighted a lot of important details involving concussions and the impact it has on ones brain and overall life. I think it is a very relevant topic to discuss considering how large and influential football and other contact sports are. I think your essay was really informative and I hope you are able to spread more awareness about this growing issue. Here is a link to more information that think you would find compelling. I hope it helps and I can’t wait to read more things that you post. https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/256518.php

      Thanks,

    • Tyler, this is a very interesting topic which is very important in sports today, especially football. My cousin plays competitive soccer and has had three concussions, so I am familiar with how they affect athletes. The problem is that a lot of times, when athletes get concussions, they won’t report them because they don’t want to be restricted from playing. You might find this helpful: https://www.thedailybeast.com/whats-really-killing-athletes-with-concussions . I’m looking forward to reading more from you in the future.

    • Greetings Tyler! I have read through your inquiry and I agree with what you have written down. I’m also eager to see what your research paper looks like when you’re done 🙂 If you don’t mind, I wanted to help out with a couple of articles that I have found. Article one talks about the academic effects of concussions on children and adolescents (There is a PDF on the site as well that contains the research of the article’s topic) http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/early/2015/05/06/peds.2014-3434

      Article 2 Is from the NIH Library and talks about the various diseases that can come about through concussions and how it has an effect on the social, emotional, and physical aspects of a person.

      I hope the articles that I have provided to you will help you in the research, if you have used either of these two articles before, let me know and I’ll try to find a better article. Have a Good Day!

  • I personally find his a very interesting topic, and I’d be lying if I said I’ve never looked it. If you haven’t already, I suggest taking a look at the Kardashev Scale. There a ton of websites and YouTube videos that can help explain it. The scale basically shows levels of advance civilizations and their technological capabilities.

  • This is a very interesting topic. I’ve heard people fight about this in school and in public, so it’s obviously a heated topic. I’d love to see your opinion on the topic and what you find out in your research.
