Neck Exercises Neck Extension?

In my profession as a rehabilitation physician I have been able to see multiple manuals of neck exercises that are given to patients. As for the cervical spine I continue to see an exercise published that bristles my whole body hairs. Look at the photo of the post. Well, an exercise of cervical extension with the straight body (perpendicular to the ground) is an aberration. It should never be done.

A history of the rodeo

The word rodeo is loosely based on the Spanish for “round up”. The rodeo has a long and exciting history dating back to Midwestern settlements in America. What started as informal competition between ranchers moving cattle has turned into a sport beloved by people all over America and in the UK. Here’s a look at the history of the sport.

Early years

Spanish cowboys influenced American cowboys from the east with their ranching skills in the 1700s. Cowboys working on early ranches would be taught skills now used in rodeo such as roping, horse breaking and bronc riding. When American ranchers expanded into the area, they would drive the cattle to the trains that would transport them eastwards for consumption. At the end of these journeys, the ranchers held competitions to see who was most skilled at driving and roping. These informal competitions would be the starting point of the rodeo.

The early 1800s saw the expansion of America to the west. Land was being divided into homesteads, and with the expansion of railways, there was no need to travel so far to drive horses. When demand for cowboys diminished as a result, many joined the wild west shows to supplement their income. These shows were set up to preserve the history of cattle ranching and offered the cowboys a chance to show off their skills.

Cowboy skills

Alongside wild west shows, cowboys were setting up informal competitions during annual stock horse shows across the west. The shows were called rodeos. Wild west shows dwindled and rodeos continued with cattle and horses. Spectators paid to watch and cowboys paid to compete.

Women and rodeos

Women joined the rodeos in the 1890s. They often rode broncs against male competitors and won on many occasions. They would also be involved with roping steers and other traditional sports of the rodeo. Women are involved today in the UK, with rodeo bull manufacturers such as supplying bulls for hire.


The sport is going strong today, with Wyoming and Texas having rodeo as their official state sport. For many colleges in the west, rodeo is an official team sport. The Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association dictates what sports are included in this sport, which has a season running from the Spring until Autumn. Bareback riding and steer wrestling must be included.

Why Half of All Brits Prefer to Stay at Home

Once upon a time, Brits may have been regarded as being keen on eating out and spending the twilight hours drinking in pubs and nightclubs. The recent trend, however, suggests many now prefer home sweet home.

The Changing Trend Towards Home Comforts

Deliveroo conducted their own survey of 2,000 UK adults, concluding that almost half of respondents preferred a night with a takeaway in front of the box to going out socialising.

A third of us will make up excuses in order to stay undisturbed in the comfort of our loungewear, with our TV remote and sofa. A lot of us will also bail at the last minute because we felt guilty about letting others down. 17% will even claim to be enjoying nights out when instead they’ve undertaken a Netflix marathon at home. Findings extend to those aged 18-24, with over 70% regularly preferring to stay home.

Why Are We Turning into Home Bunnies?

Expense is one reason for the trend. It’s increasingly costly to buy a pint in the pub, let alone spend an evening out drinking. The price of a meal, transport and the cinema are also making individuals more selective over when they go out in an attempt to tighten the purse strings.

Then there’s the development of home comforts. The boom in technology has introduced us to 4K, Smart and 3D TV. We now have digital TV recording, a diverse range of boxsets, and on-demand digital download and streaming options like Netflix to keep us happily content.

Our homes are being adapted for comfort and convenience too. Research conducted for the Smart Home Week 2017 suggests that a quarter of households are already being updated with the latest gadgetry, and 75% of respondents believe that within 20 years all homes will be outfitted with smart technology.

A home automation system with smart technology will change the way you live. Professional services such as those offered by can transform and personalise your lifestyle, from the way you use your lighting, to the workings of your home security and home cinema.

Deliveroo’s Dan Warne has referred to this as JOMO, namely the joy rather than the fear of missing out. So get comfy and get smart with your home technology, because there really is no place like home.

The End Of Paper Money

In the new digital age, the use of electronic money has become more and more in the daily life of people. If we stop to think, many of us, we see as with the passage of time, we make less use of cash. We pay the bills; we buy clothes, plane tickets, tickets for concerts, and countless other things, over the internet. Even when we go out on the street, we use the credit or debit card in most shops as a means of payment. In the United States, some economist experts even dare predict the death of cash by 2043. Others are more skeptical and even refuse to do so.

So Are Those Who Manage Education In Our Country: Highly Paid Economists Or Law Graduates

These days I have a little time to talk about issues that, perhaps, compel searches a little wider than a simple opinion piece. I am talking to dive between the different mechanisms of transparency, cumbersome and complex, that have different administrations to facilitate? The access to certain data to the society of our country. Well, let’s face it, it’s an oxymoron because, given what it has cost me to dive into the web to find certain data – yes, probably because of my inability to move through it – it seems that they are more interested in hiding certain Issues than to expose them to the public. But we are going to put on the table some curious data that, as far as they imply, may be of interest to understand what is happening in the education of our country.

Is This The Definitive Aspect Of The New Audi A4 ? A Very Realistic Approach

The Audi A4 is getting closer and proof of it was the last spy images we offered. Today we bring you another succulent novelty: several render created by the illustrator of cars Julien Jodry based on the above images. We do not know if its definitive aspect will be based on what we see in these photographs but, with total certainty, they are close enough. As you know, the fifth generation of this model is already 20 years old and was confirmed last November by Audi. Although we were expecting to see him in Geneva, we will finally have to wait until the Frankfurt Motor Show.
