Oakland Raiders' Charles Woodson To Retire After Season
The Huffington Post - about 1 year
ALAMEDA, Calif. — Charles Woodson's return to Oakland began with hundreds of fans gathering at the team's facility urging him to come back. The second stint will come to an end following an emotional farewell at the Oakland Coliseum. Woodson announced Monday he will retire following his 18th NFL season, ending a career that included a Heisman Trophy, a Super Bowl title and numerous other honors. Woodson said he realized late last month that he couldn't play another season and wanted to announce his decision before playing his final home game Thursday night against San Diego. "I felt it was only right that Raiders fans, my fans, fans that have watched me play for a long time, I'd let them all know that this Thursday night would be the last time in the Coliseum I would be able to run out there in front of our fans at home," Woodson said at a news conference. Woodson is one of the most accomplished defensive backs to play the game, ranking fifth all-time with 65 intercept ...

Success in Sauce: Former Raider Kenny King Cooks Up Family's Texas Recipe
Huffington Post Sports - about 3 years
There is an old saying that if you give a man a barbecue, you feed him for a single day. But if you teach a man how to barbecue, well, you feed him for the whole summer. Former NFL running back Kenny King hopes that at your next barbecue -- be it during summertime or otherwise -- his King's Q Sauce will be close at hand on the picnic or dinner table. "My King's Q Sauce is a work in progress," says King, 56. Though it comes from an old family recipe, I've been working on it seriously for about a year and a half, and I'm working on developing and marketing the brand. Here in Texas we are into barbecue, and I've got something that is quality and handmade. King's memories of barbecue are interspersed with those of his father, Walter King, a purveyor of fine barbecue, who proudly supplied a never-ending flow of delicious grilling. Barbecue is a passion for me. And it all started with a sauce my dad made years ago, in the small town of 2,000 people, in Clarendon, Texas. What ...

Brain Scans Shows Importance of a Healthy Breakfast
Affton-Shrewsbury Patch - over 4 years
Last week I was privileged to attend the Learning Connection Summit, a follow-up summit to a report that former U.S. Surgeon General Dr. David Satcher released in 2004. This summit, which was chaired by Dr Satcher and Alexis Glick, CEO of GENYOUth Foundation, provided an update on the science of food, learning, activity and weight. Researchers discussed how students who go to school without breakfast fail to learn as well as those who have breakfast. One study presented, showed how brain activity varied in kids who had breakfast before school versus those who did not. Brain scans showed a clear difference in brain activity in those who had breakfast before going into the classroom. Another session looked at the benefit of physical activity to learning. Researchers looked at students who had some type of physical activity – either a physical education class, recess or even activity integrated into other classes. Results showed that those who had some type of activity during the da ...

Amputee Veterans, Wounded Warriors, Prove That Life Without Limbs Is Limitless
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
War veteran Tim Horton was only 20 years old when his left leg was amputated below the knee. According to CNN, he was on his first deployment in Iraq with the Marine Corps when a bomb exploded under the Humvee he was driving. Like Horton, 26-year-old Brian Taylor Urruela was on his first deployment in Iraq when the vehicle he was in was hit by two bombs. He had his right leg amputated after 36 failed surgeries. But watching these two men run -- yes, run -- around a softball field with the agility of seasoned athletes, it quickly becomes clear that they have managed to overcome the darkest of tragedies, proving that anything is, indeed, possible. Horton and Urruela are members of the Wounded Warrior Amputee softball team -- a team composed of Army and Marine combat veterans who have lost limbs while serving in Afghanistan and Iraq, Fox News reports. The Warriors -- most of whom rely on prosthetic limbs -- partake in dozens of celebrity and exhibition charity games e ...
