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.

    A V-shaped wheel tread gives a very consistent level of grip whereas a rounded profile creates a very shallow footprint that avoids the stones. After testing a combination of shapes, we chose a hybrid – a V-shaped wheel with a very rounded point. This will give us the shallow footprint that we are after, with consistent lateral grip to steer the car at slow and medium(500-600mph) speeds.

    And that’s a big reason why Jacobs will make his return to the Giants on Sunday afternoon, just five days after re-signing with the team that drafted him out of Southern Illinois in the fourth round in 2005. Even though Tom Coughlin insists a mentor role is “not the primary reason he’s here” and Jacobs makes it clear he wants to play, the 31-year-old wouldn’t be back if Giants running back David Wilson wasn’t struggling, and if his two fumbles on opening night in Dallas hadn’t set off alarm bells throughout the organization.

Unfortunately, so are the dangers. Not only can photos be stolen and used by strangers, but many photos, especially those taken by phones or devices with GPS technology, contain tags that reveal exactly where the photos were snapped. In other words, if a parent takes a photo of his or her child playing at home and then posts it online, it's possible for strangers to know exactly where they live.

    Throughout the crisis and its aftermath all manner of policies have been justified or put in place in order to stop markets from falling, or to eke out some economic activity from the wealth effect, the portion of paper gains which finds itself recirculating through the economy. Anything to keep the market happy and buoyant. Unfortunately, while those policies work on markets they've not worked so well on the underlying economy.
