Tennessee Titans slay Tampa Bay Buccaneers 42-14; Marcus Mariota Shines

 

Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – The Tennessee Titans romped all over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sunday on their way to a 42-14 victory. The Titans could not have asked for a better start to the 2015 season.

The game received a lot of hype as it featured the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft Jameis Winston, with the Bucs, against the No. 2 overall pick Marcus Mariota with the Titans. The game was lopsided from the start.

Tennessee Department of Health says Increased Physical Activity equals Better Grades

 

Exercise Can Boost Academic Performance

Tennessee Department of Health - TDOHNashville, TN – Parents looking for ways to improve their child’s academic performance might find running paths, gyms and swim lanes as valuable as libraries.

That’s the message Tennessee Department of Health Commissioner John Dreyzehner, MD, MPH, delivered this week to more than 300 professionals attending the annual Tennessee Public Health Association conference in Franklin.

“Numerous studies by reputable organizations, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, have shown an important association between physical activity and academic performance,” Dreyzehner said. “While many parents realize regular exercise and physical activity can help build healthy bodies, decrease risk for some chronic diseases, reduce stress and improve self-esteem, sometimes we forget improved physical health can impact what happens in the classroom and how children learn.” «Read the rest of this article»

NASA’s Mars Curiosity rover finds Sand Dunes that have Petrified

 

Written by Guy Webster

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – Some of the dark sandstone in an area being explored by NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover shows texture and inclined bedding structures characteristic of deposits that formed as sand dunes, then were cemented into rock.

This sandstone outcrop — part of a geological layer that Curiosity’s science team calls the Stimson unit — has a structure called crossbedding on a large scale that the team has interpreted as deposits of sand dunes formed by wind.

Large-scale crossbedding in the sandstone of this ridge on a lower slope of Mars' Mount Sharp is typical of windblown sand dunes that have petrified. (NASA/JPL-Caltech/MSSS)
