Enhance Pool Safety: Help Protect Your Family From Electric Shock Drowning
Five words or less(NewsUSA) - Before you open your pool for the season or whenever you close it down, you should be aware of a hidden danger. Faulty wiring or damaged electrical cords used to connect electrical equipment near the pool or from the pool lighting can cause the water to become energized. When swimmers come into contact with this "leaked" electrical current in your pool, it can cause loss of muscle control, rapid or irregular heartbeat or even electric shock drowning (ESD). Electrical shock drowning can occur in treated water. Many pools and spas now feature lighting, digital entertainment systems, automated sensors for maintenance, and other integrated comforts or technologies. The presence of these devices in and around water can increase the risk of injury. Mild tingling sensations and numbness in the limbs or extremities are the first telltale symptoms of ESD."Electricity is extremely dangerous in water and improperly installed, maintained or damaged electrical connectivity can leak electrical current," says Grayling Love, product line manager at Eaton. "Help protect yourself and your loved ones from ESD by having all electrical equipment used at the pool or spa installed, inspected and regularly maintained by certified electrical contractors who can help you meet the latest electrical codes and standards." Electric shock drowning cases have been known to result from electrical current leakages originating from faulty wiring or failing electrical distribution equipment. The use of Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCIs) and Equipment Leakage Circuit Interrupters (ELCIs) near the pool, hot tub or wet spa can significantly help reduce the risk of electric shock drowning while helping water facilities meet electrical codes and safety standards. These devices are designed to help enhance safety by quickly shutting off power if electrical current leakage is detected. If you own a pool or spa, contact a certified electrical contractor to install, maintain or replace equipment and assure that your site is up to code. Look for experts with certification specific to water-based systems. The Eaton Certified Contractor Network (ECCN) can help you locate an Eaton Certified Electrical Contractor who can provide guidance through the most recent codes, standards and safety considerations required for your specific site or project needs. To help enhance safety and reduce the risk of electrical shock in your pool or spa: * Remind swimmers and spa users to always pay attention to how they feel in the water. * Schedule routine electrical maintenance and inspections. * Don't enter the water to perform electrical maintenance tasks. * If any unusual tingling or numbness occurs, avoid contact with metal objects. * Signal for help without inviting others into the water.

Electric Shock Drowning -- The Hidden Danger to Swimmers And Boaters
Five words or less(NewsUSA) - Before you spend your day at the lake or beach, know that the water may have hidden dangers. Faulty wiring or damaged electrical cords used in docks and boats can cause nearby water to become energized. When a swimmer comes in contact with electrical current, it can cause a loss of muscle control, rapid or irregular heartbeat or even electric shock drowning (ESD). Electrical shock drowning can occur in both fresh and salt water. However, hazards for swimmers are greater in fresh water systems with lower salt content. "Electricity can be extremely dangerous when equipment is improperly installed or maintained. Further, normal use of boats and docks can break down the insulation on wiring, leading to electricity leaking into the water," says Jeff Kuykendall, a product manager at Eaton. "It is critical that electrical equipment and infrastructure used in and around our waterways is regularly maintained by certified electrical contractors and the applicable electrical codes and standards are followed." In most recorded electrical shock drowning cases, electrical current leakage originated from faulty wiring or failing electrical equipment in or near boats or docks. Recent electrical codes and safety standards emphasize the use of Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCIs) and Equipment Leakage Circuit Interrupters (ELCIs) to help reduce the risk of electrical shock drowning. These devices are designed to help enhance safety by quickly shutting off power if electrical current leakage is detected. If you own a boat, dock or marina, contact a certified electrical contractor to address any electrical safety concerns near water. Industry professionals can help maintain or replace equipment and confirm that docks and boats are up to code. The Eaton Certified Contractor Network (ECCN) can help you locate an Eaton Certified Electrical Contractor who can provide guidance in minimizing the risk of ESD related to your specific site or project needs. Before swimming in open water, be aware of potential dangers associated with ESD. To help promote safety and reduce the risk of electrical shock: * Obey "no swimming" signs and pay attention to how you feel in the water. * If any tingling or numbness should occur while swimming, avoid contact with metal objects. * Signal for help without inviting others into the water. * Once you have reached safety, report your experience so that the water can be tested and made safe for others.

Amateur Athletes Seek Non-Opioid Pain Relief
Five words or less(NewsUSA) - They may not make those "Agony of Defeat" sports reels, but amateur athletes get injured all the time. Maybe it's from an awkward golf swing. Or maybe it's from not warming up or stretching before an event. Whatever the cause, though, there's one scary thing they have in common with the pros. "The reality is that all athletes are one fall, twist, or tweak away from landing their own opioid prescription," Outside magazine warned. The warning couldn't be better timed. It's not just that the country is in the midst of an opioid crisis that's claimed the lives of thousands of prescription painkiller abusers and left countless more addicted to the likes of OxyContin. It's also that -- as the magazine also noted -- physicians seem to be starting to heed last year's urging by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to dramatically curtail prescribing the drugs. According to a survey conducted for the Boston Globe by the SERMO physicians social network, more than half of doctors across America are doing exactly that, and nearly one in 10 have completely stopped prescribing them. So what's an amateur athlete suffering from pain supposed to do? One especially popular alternative is drug-free chiropractic care. Whereas opioids (and Ibuprofen forms of over-the-counter drugs) only "mask" the pain, doctors of chiropractic approach the problem highly educated and trained in the structure and function of the human body. And they use hands-on techniques to help enhance flexibility, muscle strength, and range of motion -; the very things all athletes need addressing. And yes, as the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress' Dr. Sherry McAllister says, chiropractic is covered by most insurance and health plans.

The One Super Bowl Fact You Still May Not Know
Five words or less(NewsUSA) - Yes, there actually is one important fact that didn't get the attention it deserves during Super Bowl LI. Both the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons, it turns out, employed team chiropractors to help get them there. As for why, Dr. Michael Miller, the winning Patriots' longtime team chiropractor, may have the best explanation. "We're all committed to one goal," he says. "That's keeping the athletes performing at their maximum potential, and preventing and managing injuries as they occur. Most of the players receive (chiropractic) adjustments one to two times per week." Now, no one's implying that chiropractic care was the deciding factor in who made it to Houston's NRG Stadium. In fact, every NFL team now uses chiropractors, and -- given the sport's physical intensity -- they're probably even more drawn than the general public to one of chiropractic's biggest plusses: It's seen as a safer and more effective alternative to potentially addictive prescription painkillers, which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently urged doctors to avoid prescribing after thousands of deaths linked to their abuse. Doctors of chiropractic are known for their focus on the structure and function of the human body with hands-on techniques that help enhance things like flexibility, muscle strength, and range of motion. With a minimum of seven years of higher education, as the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress' Dr. Sherry McAllister notes, they're trained to address a broad range of health issues. Here's one last bit of Super Bowl trivia: The average pro football team chiropractor provides 30 to 50 consultations and adjustments per week during the season, according to the Professional Football Chiropractic Society.

Sauces for the Win: Why They're A Hit At A Party
Five words or less(NewsUSA) - It's that time of year again--the time when families and friends come together to celebrate with food and open arms. That's right, it's almost playoff season, with football, basketball, and hockey playoffs all just around the corner. With these highly anticipated games come the equally anticipated snacks--from chips and dip to wings and hot sauce. In fact, a lot can be said from people's usage of dips and sauces, and that usage has increased over the past year. According to a survey by the Association for Dressings & Sauces, the reasons for using dips and sauces more often include: making more or new foods that need them, using them on more foods or as a healthy option with healthy foods, and cooking or eating at home more. So satisfy your craving for the perfect mid-game snack and bring them to parties in new and creative ways. Here are a couple of tips that will help you pick the perfect recipe for your friends: * Survey results show that Asian sauces, horseradish, hot and Mexican sauces are more popular than they were last year, with hot sauce and mustard being used several times a week by the majority of respondents. So go exotic and use bold flavors in your dishes! * Geography also has something to say about what you should bring to a gathering. People in the Northeast reported a greater affinity for horseradish. Folks in the Midwest loves barbecue sauces. Asian sauces and hummus are more popular in the West and the South is all about hot sauce. These tips should get your creative juices flowing so you can bring a tasty and unique contribution to whatever playoff party you're attending.

Want to Take The Road Less Traveled? Here's How
Five words or less(NewsUSA) - Off-road driving on scenic, challenging trails can be fun, but it's completely different than cruising down the road; keep these tips in mind to stay safe and avoid getting stuck. --Soft obstacles: When you plan to tackle sand, snow, or mud, deflate your tires to improve your traction by decreasing the tire footprint. Maintain momentum, and if your wheels start spinning in the sand or snow, ease off the gas a bit. In mud, keep the wheels spinning to help clear the mud from the tires. --Hard obstacles: When you approach large rocks, logs, or ditches during off-road driving, take them at an angle, so only one tire engages the obstacle and the other three remain on level ground to maximize traction. Place one tire on the obstacle, then drive over it slowly to help protect the underside of your vehicle. --Hills: Always have an escape plan in case your trek doesn't turn out as expected. However, you can increase your odds of safely taking on hills by approaching them straight on for maximum traction to all four tires. Use the highest gear possible to comfortably take the hill. Having the right vehicles and tires makes for an unparalleled off-roading experience, according to Pearse Umlauf, president and CEO of Jeep Jamboree. "Jeep Jamborees are off-road adventure weekends that bring down-to-earth people to enjoy their Jeep 4x4s in the outdoors," said Umlauf, who works to coordinate operations for safe use and maintenance of off-road vehicle trails in the U.S. and worldwide. He noted that BFGoodrich Tires will be the official tire of Jeep Jamboree in 2017. When you are ready to head to the backcountry, Del Albright, Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Famer, and BFGoodrich Performance Team Expert, has 50 years driving experience with tires on trails. "The All-Terrain T/A KO2 tire is my tire of choice, with a rugged, durable design that makes it ideal for off-roaders who want to torture test their vehicles or just enjoy the backroads," he said. Albright also is a longtime advocate for conservation and preservation of trails for off-roading use. One of his favorite trails, the Rubicon Trail in Lake Tahoe, California, was at risk for closure due to erosion concerns, but Albright helped lead a group of volunteers to fix the trouble spots and preserve the trail for off-roaders and other outdoor enthusiasts to enjoy. Some of his other favorites include Rausch Creek Off-Road Park (Pennsylvania), San Hallow State Park (Utah) and the Hatfield-McCoy Trail (West Virginia).

Four-Wheel Fans Care for Trails
Five words or less(NewsUSA) - A foursome of four-wheel drive clubs are the winners of the 2016 Outstanding Trails Program sponsored by BFGoodrich Tires, in partnership with 4 Wheel Parts, United Four Wheel Drive Associations, Blue Ribbon Coalition, and Off Road Business Association. The clubs and their nominated trails are: -Mile-Hi Jeep Club: Sidewinder Trail, Colorado -Ohio River Four Wheelers: Daniel Boone Backcountry Byway, Kentucky -Grand Mesa Jeep Club: 21 Road, Grand Junction, Colorado -Piston's Wild Motorsports Club: Hagen Creek Trail, Yacolt Burn State Forest, Washington The Outstanding Trails program, now in its 11th year, was created to promote trail conservation and responsible off-road driving. The program invites off-road clubs from all over North America to nominate local trails that need maintenance or improvement. A panel of judges chooses the winning clubs and trails, which are selected based on unique features, terrain, and club support. The four off-road clubs chosen each year receive grants of $4,000 each to use for local efforts to preserve and protect their hometown trails. In addition, representatives from BFGoodrich Tires will attend club events related to the winning trails in order to highlight each location's unique features and educate four-wheel drive fans in responsible trail use. "The saying goes, 'where the rubber meets the road,' and at BFGoodrich, not only do we take that to heart, but we also believe that where the rubber meets the trail is equally important, and that starts with the All-Terrain T/A KO2 tire," says BFGoodrich's Oscar Pereda. "In our first ten years of the Outstanding Trails program, we have helped to improve, repair, maintain, and protect nearly 50 trails in 17 states and two Canadian provinces." Each of the winning clubs has plans to improve and maintain their local trails. One in particular has taken conservation a step beyond the trail itself to include animals that live there. The Grand Mesa Jeep Club "has adopted the 21 Road Trail and other local trails and is committed to its protection and maintenance," according to club president Jeff Bates. But the club has adopted not only the road, but also the Great Basin Spadefoot Toad (also known as the "21 Road Toad"), a threatened species in the area. "The club has committed to protecting the toad's habitat in at least three areas along the trail with posts and cable," Bates says. Visit bfgoodrichtires.com for more information.

A Date with Destiny: Video Games Teach Kids Life Lessons
(NewsUSA) - It's an undeniable fact. Among cash, gift cards and the "toy of the moment," kids want to see video games under the Christmas tree. Rail against it all you want, that's the reality. But take heart, parents, today's video games can teach kids valuable life lessons not learned in a classroom.For those that scoff at the idea that video games have value beyond hours of mindless entertainment, Sherry Turkel, a professor and researcher at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology says, "think again.""The games demand skills that are complex," Turkel told The Washington Post in an interview. "There is learning how to learn ? there is nothing mindless about mastering a video game."One game that is getting attention for its complexity and teachable moments is Bungie and Activision's Destiny games, a bold world of action and adventure where kids are a Guardian of the last safe city on Earth. If you're a veteran and have followed the game from its inception, you may like the newest release, Destiny: Rise of Iron. If you're a newbie, Destiny -- The Collection, contains five games in one collection, including the newest release from the award winning franchise. And best of all, it's available for just $59.99.Still not convinced?

Businesses, Athletes Are Getting in on Game Apps
(NewsUSA) - Sponsored News - There are few topics that cause as much heated debate and passion as sports -- especially football. And in this digital age, mobile technology only enables such zeal -- which is probably why sports apps are arguably one of the most popular ways to keep up with a beloved team, as well as help diehard football fans decide who will win a matchup on any given Sunday.Consider this: according to the NFL, 70 percent of fans use a second screen while watching football, use apps to allow for easy access to player stats and analysis, and keep in touch with other fans who are watching the game.1One company that is making itself known as the premier place to go for NFL predictions is Pick Factor (www.pickfactor.com). Why? Because it helps gridiron enthusiasts by analyzing thousands of predictions from top sports websites, blogs, radio, and newspapers such as ESPN, Fox Sports, and CBS Sports, finally coming to a consensus prediction for every game.Think you can pick like a pro? Now Pick Factor has launched its new Pick 'em app that allows everyone to test their own predictions. The app not only helps those entrenched in football warfare (be it recreational, an office pool, or various leagues), but now users can also create their own leagues with friends or compete in public leagues.Jim Omer, president of Pick Factor, says that retired NFL players and sports bars have partnered with the company to create their own leagues in order to have their "own game experience.""Famous athletes and businesses are constantly looking for new ways to engage their fans and consumers. This is a way for them to do that," Omer says."I like to think of it as an innovative sports app that's fun for football fans, and provides our partners with a unique way to promote themselves."For more information, visit www.pickfactor.com or Jim Omer at jim@pickfactor.com

Seek to Know More: How Your Smartphone Can Save You Money
Five words or less(NewsUSA) - Sponsored News - It seems as if there is nothing a smartphone can't do these days. It can get you where you want to go (most of the time), you can make reservations at your favorite restaurant, and now you can use it to detect whether your home is leaking energy or water. Thermal imaging, a once-costly technology, available only to the military and police or firefighters, is now just a finger-swipe away with the right attachment to your smartphone, thanks to Seek Thermal, a California-based technology company. The way it works is this: the Seek Compact Camera (which is smaller than a credit card swiper for your phone) attaches to your smartphone, turning it into a thermal imager that can then identify hot and cold spots in your house. After downloading a free app, the camera begins working in seconds and homeowners can then easily spot energy loss in the home caused by air leaks, missing or damaged insulation, insufficient HVAC or poor construction. In addition, the thermal imaging camera can also find water in roofs, walls, doors, and window frames. According to one user who tested the Seek camera at the end of winter in his own home, the results were "stunning." "Within minutes, I was able to detect sources of heat leaking out of my house," he says. "Some of these places are easy to fix, while others would be quite difficult." For professional contractors, the Seek CompactPRO is a must-have because the camera has enough sensitivity to locate radiant heating pipes under concrete slabs, identify unsealed insulation gaps in roofs, walls, and door and window frames, and find out how far water has spread in the case of a leak. Thinking of buying a home? This little jewel could save you all kinds of unexpected surprises in the form of water leaks in the basement and behind finished walls, and roof leaks that may have been painted over by a homeowner trying to disguise a problem. To protect your investment (both the camera and your phone), the Seek Compact has a compatible module for the OtterBox uniVERSE Case System. The smartphone attachment is designed to work with both iPhone and Android top models. For more information, please visit www.thermal.com.
