The Visual Side of Pain

first_imgThe Wall Street Journal:Perceptions of pain can be changed by distorting the view of the affected body part, a new study finds, opening a fresh window onto the psychological side of pain.Researchers affixed a heat-producing device to the left index fingers of 18 volunteers. A mirror was set up so that when the subjects looked toward their left hand what they saw was really a reflection of their right hand. (To complete the effect, the right index finger got its own non-functioning thermode.) Then they started turning up the heat, slowly.Read the whole story: The Wall Street Journallast_img

Where is Tom Herrington?

first_imgThen a phone call from the bus. They were waiting for one more passenger, but no-one had realized that group 7 was still on the course. They had dropped behind and were caught in the rain, so took shelter. As they were ready to go they called a group from another society to play through so, consequently, finished much later than the rest.Those waiting in the bus were asking “where is Tom Herrington?” At last he boarded and they were on their way.Next up we travel to Bangpakong which is in a different province, so perhaps have different weather gods. We will make the same request about the rain and cross fingers we have the same result.Counting down the days to return to competition golf, not too many more to wait, hopefully. The, now routine, health check-in at Greenwood Golf Club was simple and easy as was the service at the green fees counter, and then to the locker rooms. Yes, happily, they are open, but no showers, of course.Our 27 golfers gathered at the marshaling area to be told that we would have a two tee start, even though we only had seven groups, but it is always welcome. All groups got away a little earlier than scheduled.Before the forced layoff this course was always presented in great condition, so it is a credit to the ground staff and management that, after so long, they were able to give us that same standard today.Promoted ContentbrainberriesThe Biggest Cities In The World So FarbrainberriesbrainberriesbrainberriesBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For Thembrainberriesbrainberries Fairways were well grassed and nicely mown and the greens running truly and at pace, just how we like them.Since our washout at Laem Chabang earlier in the week we asked the weather gods if we could have lots of rain, but after we finished play. This was granted at Pattavia and, as the last group exited the eighteenth that day, the heavens opened.We asked the gods for the same today and, once again, it was granted. The sky grew darker as all groups finished and headed off to return to Pattaya, since there are no showers.The rain tumbled down as we drove on the motorway.

Pako Ayestaran: “Dani Parejo is not able to compete”

first_img The player was not included in the Valencia squad to face Bournemouth, and his manager Pako Ayestaran has now provided the reason behind this decision. According to ‘Superdeporte’, the fact that Parejo remained in the team hotel was due to the fact that “at this moment in time, the player is not in the right spirit or mental state to compete.” The manager still remains optimistic that the midfielder can be an important factor in his team and describes him as “a great player”. The Basque coach hopes that the situation resolves itself, but leaves the ball in Parejo’s court. CEST Upd. at 22:42 04/08/2016 Ayestaran said he is hopeful that the footballer “takes the time to deal with the situation and takes on board everything we have told him.” The case of Dani Parejo is proving to be one of the summer soap operas of Spanish football. Regarding Parejo’s future, the Valencia boss confirmed that the club “is clear that they want him to be here and do not have any intention of selling him.” Sport ENlast_img read more
