Derrick Rose’s injury comments last week

Le 18 November 2014, 03:39 dans Humeurs 0

Derrick Rose’s injury comments last week have been sent through the ringer, spun and contorted to stir up questions surrounding Rose’s commitment to the Bulls. A refresher, not that you need it: Rose said that when he sits out games this season (he’s missed four with sprained ankles and one with a hamstring sprain), it’s because he wants to be functional for post-career business meetings and family graduations down the line.

It’s not an unrealistic thought as professional athletes have a shelf life, but the way Rose articulated his thoughts shook many the wrong way. Don’t consider Heat players Dwyane Wade and former teammate Luol Deng as part of that school of thought. Both veterans were adamant in their defense of Rose. “The thing with Derrick is, I was there from his rookie year, I’ve watched him growing up,” Deng told Bleacher Report. “When he first came to the league, me and Joakim [Noah] would always tell him, ‘Derrick, you can’t play tonight. You’re hurt.’ And he always wants to put the team behind him and the city behind him. And even when he was hurt, he would play. And I really believe that some of his [subsequent] injuries were because he would play hurt. We would tell him not to. And he was so determined and wanted to be the best he could be, not only for the team, [but] for the city. "We kept trying to tell him to understand, like, ‘Look, there’s a difference between pain and injury.’ And I think now after two injuries, he’s being smart.”

Physically, I was free. Emotionally, I was in chains. I’d made a promise to myself. And I intended to keep it. I located two Jewish boys who were well enough to make the walk to Weimar. I told them what the woman did and what I was prepared to do about it. We could rummage machine guns from the mountain of German weapons seized by the inmates and Americans that lay in piles on the Appelplatz.

The streets outside camp were air max 2014 night factor with an ominous sense of disquiet. A smattering of prisoners in striped pajamas ambled in search of noncamp food. I kept my eyes open for SS. We gripped our guns and got to Weimar as quickly as possible. My heartbeat quickened the closer we got to the mayor’s house. Pent-up rage from all I had seen and experienced surged through me. Killing the mayor’s wife could not repay the Nazis for the terror they had inflicted on us. But it was a start. We walked a few miles before turning down the street the mayor’s home was on. I pointed to a house several paces down the road: “I think that’s it.” The big black Mercedes was not out front.

It’s startling news at time

It’s startling news at time when more and more women are delaying having their first child well into their 30s or beyond. According to the most recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 in 12 women have their first child at age 35 or older, compared to 1 in 100 women in 1970. “Women are now more inclined to be leaders in the workforce, and life gets busy,” theorized Brower. “As a professional woman myself, I know that there is never a good time to have a baby. There is a lot of pressure to not take time away.

Women are meeting their partners later, and everything is getting pushed back.” As the realities of being an ambitious professional collide with the risks of delayed motherhood, an increased number of women are starting to turn to oocyte cryopreservation, more commonly known as egg freezing — a process that involves harvesting, freezing, and storing a woman’s eggs until she is ready to become pregnant.

The buzz surrounding egg freezing grew louder earlier this month when Google and Facebook announced that the procedure would be covered as part of their employees’ benefits packages — a noteworthy move considering that just a few years ago, egg freezing was considered an experimental procedure; In 2012, the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) removed the ‘experimental’ tag.
