Through the eyes of Paula...

With the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics approaching quickly, it may interest some people to learn about some lesser known Olympic sports. To take a break from the well-known events, one can take a chance on watching and learning about a different event. Here are a few unusual Olympic sports.

1. Judo: Judo is a gentle way for athletes to take their opponents down – gentle as in not involving kicking or punching. This martial art uses a combination of throws and muscle power. This year marks 52 years since judo was introduced in the Olympics.

2. Rugby: Rugby may be unusual only because it has been absent from the Olympics for decades. The top contenders for the top prize are the Canadian and American women’s teams.

3. Field hockey: Field hockey is the only Olympic team sport in which there are medalists from all inhabited continents of the world. Historically played on grass, the international federation modified it to be played on a synthetic surface to provide a faster pace for flicking or chasing the ball. At Rio 2016, teams will compete in 15-minute quarters rather than 35-minute halves.

4. Trampoline gymnastics: Trampoline gymnastics only made its debut at the Sydney 2000 games, which is fairly recent. Competitors can compete solo or in teams, and they must execute an array of twists, turns, and other aerial feats while completing 10 bounces that put their bodies several metres above a trampoline.

You can connect and reconnect with people through all manner of social media. (For example, no job seeker today should be without a tricked-out profile on LinkedIn.) But if you don't physically leave your home or office, you could be missing out on the chance of encountering new opportunities. That's what life coach and journalist Tracee Sioux, 40, of Fort Collins, Colorado, recently discovered.

Even so, the dramatic rate of growth shown here in superb confirmation that hadrosaurs could grow quickly pretty much right out of the egg and the knowledge that the crest only developed in adult animals limits their potential functions and suggests that they were not important especially important in juveniles. Despite the detailed and thorough paper on this new baby, there is clearly more to come – on top of the preserved beak there are also traces of skin impressions on the legs and doubtless other researchers and already queuing up to take a look at this important and wonderful fossil.

    Five years ago: Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens was indicted on seven felony counts of concealing more than a quarter of a million dollars in house renovations and gifts from a powerful oil contractor. (A jury later found the longtime Republican lawmaker guilty of lying on financial disclosure forms, but a judge subsequently dismissed the case, saying prosecutors had withheld evidence.) Disgraced ex-NBA official Tim Donaghy admitted that he'd brought shame on his profession as a federal judge sentenced him to 15 months behind bars for a gambling scandal. Army scientist Bruce E. Ivins, 62, named as a top suspect in anthrax mailing attacks in 2001, died at a hospital in Frederick, Md., after deliberately overdosing on Tylenol.

We always loved watching managers send up lefthanded pinch-hitters. All it did was create more firewood.

I know another year of the Big Three together should make people believe that theyll just win it again. But you would have to also look at my answer to the question above.  What is the motivation for this Miami Heat team, other than winning again?  Which of course is the ultimate goal. But I feel like they could get lax, and the Pacers might be able to pull something off.  How awesome would that be to get past the Heat after knocked out the past two seasons by them?
