|We have all seen it all too often. That ?A? player on the team has those laser guided missiles for parents. They know everything about the sport their child and in most cases the competition. Their vision is to see their child rise to the lofty levels of ?D One? Women's Marshawn Lynch Jersey , or more commonly known as Division One College ranks. Oh yes, and this while their child is still in K-6 of course. No investment in their athletic future is too high. Personal trainer for young Mikey at all of age 7? You bet, he still needs to learn how to score with the left hand. Forget the fact that the basketball size and height of the rim could be problematic to Mikey?s physical capabilities, alas a trainer will fix that.
Then we venture into the athletic dome or for this tale the Gym. Inside the dome is where we really see it all. Live and it full color. Parents screaming for their child and cursing every bad call by the officials. Here?s another funny note, in every youth sport there is the constant need for the volunteer coach. I haven?t found the pay for coach level yet in the recreational leagues. We?ll leave that for a later novel. So here we are with the game in-hand and the poor coach trying to keep everyone happy by playing fair with their time on the court and then it happens. The A Player parent, who didn?t volunteer to coach their child takes over. With their rage in full stride they aggressively call out to the ?team? to step it up and begin the quest to over take their teams coach by out yelling him or her from the bleachers. All this adds up to is chaos.
I always thought it would be fun to take all those videodvd recorders and turn them back on the bleachers. Make a year end party video for all to see. Now that would be one pizza party worth the wait. You see, the one common thread in all this is that most parents have no idea what the sound like. They have no ill intentions in most cases either. But the negative effect this has on their children and the other players is quite real. One thing I must say about the individual sports is they are quite different on tolerance. I would give youth soccer an A for not allowing the sidelines to manage the pitch. Baseball would get an F and quite frankly I think it?s by design. Basketball is mixed. Where you have a strong League director its well managed and combined with good officials who must also make sure that they are not bigger than the game you have a great potential.
The real damage is not to the game, although it too suffers. The sad report here is the impact our children have when a parent becomes larger than the game itself weekend after weekend. All too often a child just drops out of their quest for a sports role only because the embarrassment or abuse is just not worth it anymore. Lots of downside to this when you consider most children tend to get in trouble when too much idle time is available. Sports is a wonderful way to keep this from happening.
I guess at the end of the day we as parents have to take stock. We have to look in the mirror and take a closer view of our desires personally versus our children?s enjoyment for their sport of choice. Always an interesting day at the youth games.
WELLINGTON, June 16 (Xinhua) -- Pests like mice and wasps may one day be eradicated using a new technique which scientists have just proven in the laboratory on fruit flies, according to a study released on Friday.
Prof. Neil Gemmell, head of University of Otago's Department of Anatomy, said the "Trojan Female Technique" -- in which females pass on genes that make male offspring infertile -- offers pest-control advantages that are likely to help as New Zealand strives to reach the government's Predator Free 2050 goal.
In a research paper published by eLife, Gemmell and co-authors reported their success in making their theory about Trojan female fruit flies a reality in the lab.
"This is a world-first proof-of-concept and we need to test the general applicability of this approach more widely," Gemmell said, adding that the technique uses naturally occurring mutations in mitochondrial DNA that affect male, but not female, fertility and fitness.
Mitochondria are considered the "power generators" of a cell and turn oxygen and nutrients into chemical energy which runs the cell's metabolic activities. "The essence of our idea is to use these mitochondrial mutations to produce continuous, self-sustaining biological control, he said.
"What we discovered some years back is that, as a by-product of the maternal inheritance of mitochondrial DNA, mutations that affect only males can occur quite commonly in populations, potentially contributing to fertility issues in some populations," he said.
"Our idea turns this problem around. If these mutations can affect population viability, we wondered if they might be turned into a tool that has the potential to control and even eradicate pests, Gemmell said.
Their study showed that population reduction, albeit at this stage quite modest, can be achieved in laboratory-raised fruit flies, and broadening this technique to introduce Trojan females into wasp and pasture weevil populations is under way.
While there are many tools to control pest populations, this might be an important part of a growing arsenal, and around New Zealand there is a great deal of interest in this approach as a way to control rats, possums and stoats as part of the Predator Free 2050 goal, Gemmell said.
Pests are estimated to cost New Zealand about 3.3 billion NZ dollars (2.4 billion U.S. dollars) a year through lost productivity and cause profound damage to native fauna and flora. "The implications globally are even larger, particularly when insect-borne diseases, like malaria, are considered," he said.
