    Unfortunately for me, I do know the figures worldwide as I have been looking into this for a short film I am writing, and staggering they are! This is a very important issue that needs addressing and in everyway possible. I knew two of my childhood aquantances who took their own lives and I saw frst hand the devistation it causes the families that remain. More needs to be done to raise awareness

Thank you, @Christine Stevens for so eloquently sharing his mission and the fact that we all need to reach out to the people in our lives who may be having a tough time.

When these countries Croatia, Jamaica, Grenada, Bahamas etc: produce great results, i.e. metals, the entire population becomes motivated. The younger generation sees first hand what can be accomplished with hard work, focus and determination. This gives them joy and hope for the future.

    #14 Manjit, I didn't manage to read your comment earlier. At the Olympics people are participating under the flags of their countries, and they win medals for their countries as well. I'm proud of every achievement my country has accomplished because I live here, in Croatia, no matter of my nationality. For me that issue has never been crucial because I'm the "product" of mixing the various nationalities (Serbs, Croats, Czechs...), but I consider myself a Croat because I live in Croatia.
    The world is changing and through the history many countries have been merged and separated. Who knows how the world will look like in another 20 or 30 years.

    Flavio 🇯🇵 Souza
    22/08/2016 #20 Flavio 🇯🇵 Souza
    I think that is not really a straight forward analysis because the IOC has some rules for example : I believe countries have some quotes in the Olympics also over time there have been changes to borders, and countries merging and separating, so there is a history of countries participating at the Olympics that no longer exist or no longer compete under that name. Also on many occasions mixed teams with athletes from more than one country have participated.

    Joseph Schooling's achievemement is amazing, considering that he comes from tiny Singapore and beat Michael Phelps in swimming setting a new Olympic record in the process. Lee Chong Wei and Pandelela, both from Malaysia, also made their countries proud with silvers in men's badminton and women diving respectively. These athletes have done well because traditionally they have been strong in that sporting event for many years. Badminton is a good example. It all starts from the grassroots.

    I stopped using deodorant about six months ago---I perspire a lot, and started using menthol powder after I shower to control perspiration.
    I have narcolepsy as well....and I find it interesting that while in the throes of an attack, the dreams I have are predictive of future events. A group I belong to asked a question about this selfsame thing, and it turns out that 95% of respondents have had predictive dreams. I have often wondered if narcolepsy isn't the same thing as an unasked "vision quest", since so many of us with narcolepsy tend to share dream characteristics common in the visions of native shamans. I'll have to look up the references.

    Maybe it's time for more bicycle awareness? I have read one too many stories, this being the most recent of a bicyclist being killed while biking. Most of the stories I read about are due to road rage and lack of respect and/or sharing the road with cyclists. Many of the roads in Colorado have bike lanes, yet cyclists are are still hit. Today's latest happened during Boulder Ironman. This person went to race and will never return home to the loving arms of their family. Their family just lost a loved one today. This truly angers me and I wish we could collectively begin a movement to bring more awareness to drivers about sharing the road with cyclists.

    #1 Hi @Robert Bacal, I understand what you are saying but my recent concerns come from many articles and stories my son has shared. Boulder and the surrounding communities are known for health and cycling. They have TONS of bicycle lanes [ separate from cars ] and I know the cyclists take their role seriously. My son has told me that there is a lot of road rage out there and many young cyclists have been killed. I realize accidents happen but many of these incidents are not accidents, they are rage related or irresponsible drivers. I'm not saying 'every' cyclist is responsible but most of them try to be VERY aware of drivers and respectful because they know they are easier targets- whether it's an accident or due to road rage and/or negligence. Heres a recent article- http://www.denverpost.com/2016/06/25/cyclist-killed-hit-and-run-boulder-county/

    I know these kinds of cyclist fatalities are upsetting, because it would seem it should be possible to reduce the number of accidents, and I know cities are trying. And we should try, but also realize that so long as cyclists share space, there will be accidents and deaths. We've had pedestrians killed since day one of the auto. As both a cyclist and a car driver, I feel bikers need to realize the risks involved.

    Alone time can be the best time to regroup and think. It is good to reflect while exercising. The energy expended with each pace can feel liberating. I understand this feeling. I would do this regularly a few years ago, when I could and it made all the difference in each day. The air, the smell of the trees are things which brings us back to our natural self, or the point of zero. For a while we are on neutral ground, the only barriers being the ones we hold onto. I love the energy of this post. I can feel the sounds of the heartbeat, lungs inhaling and exhaling rhythmically. Thanks for this @Laura Mikolaitis!

    A Protein That Moves From Muscle To Brain May Tie Exercise To Memory

    In all deference, the block you are talking about, while quite spectacular, was, at least to me, not unexpected. He owned that game. I watched LeBron very closely especially during the last three games of that series and, even though there was no need for him to prove how great he is, he did it anyway. That is why he makes the big bucks. Making the impossible look easy is the hardest thing in the world to do. I wish I saw more commitment like that in business.

    How many hours, rejections, drafts, prototypes, etc. are you willing to put towards winning? This is a question that leaders and entrepreneurs must ask themselves everyday.

But just last week walking a startup conference hall for 3 whole days, I got back to my hotel and got breaststrokers cramp for the first time in 30 years! Need to move to the countryside, or better still, South Africa!
