Consumers may purchase running shoes on the basis of their masses, yet little is known about shoe mass perceptual abilities. In this multi-part experiment, four groups of twenty-five young adult males (total n = 100) were challenged to gauge the relative masses of five unfamiliar running shoes. The four groups differed by the length of time they were given to wear the shoes (up to 1 minute versus 5 minutes) and whether or not they were able to use their own personal running shoes as a reference....

Background: Football players have many options in cleat styles and designs today. Skill position players especially may opt for soccer cleats over football cleats in the belief that the soccer cleats will help them run faster. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to compare soccer cleats to football cleats during common American football field drills. Methods: Sixteen young adult males performed a circuit of four American football speed and agility drills (forty yd-dash, ladder drill, 5-10-5-d...

This article describes philosophies and perspectives underpinning scientific citizenship–focused curricular changes implemented into a pre-existing undergraduate infectious diseases course. Impetus for the curricular changes was a novel, campus-wide, multidisciplinary “Engaged Citizen” theme for the general education curriculum. The first half of the article describes the larger contexts from which the curricular changes were borne and the resulting instructional model. The second half of the ar...

Echinacea supplements may prevent or reduce symptoms of upper respiratory infections by immunomodulation, possibly by altering the cytokine profile. Compared with other species in the genus, the immunomodulatory properties of Echinacea laeviagata are poorly characterized. The purposes of this study were to compare the diversity and quantity of known bioactive compounds from aboveground organs of E. laevigata, and to characterize the in vitro immumodulatory properties of ethanol tinctures produce...

Somatosensory perception of running shoe mass has not been studied in females, and so it is also unclear whether it differs between the sexes. Seventy-five young adults (50 females, 25 males) participated across two experiments to determine mass perception accuracy when hands vs. feet were used, and whether relative shoe mass range influenced experimental outcomes. Somatosensory perception of running shoe mass was similar for both sexes (regardless of the relative range of shoe mass), and hands ...
