US High School Basketball 3 Transition Offensive Drills to Play Fast and Yiğit Kuş Basketball Recruiting Video (Class of 2023)

 

3 Transition Offensive Drills to Play Fast

  • By Jaycob Ammerman
  •  

Seton Hall Head Women's basketball Coach Tony Bozzella is one of the best at pushing the tempo on offense.

He has led the Seton Hall women to two NCAA Tournaments and holds the best winning percentage in school history for women’s basketball. 

Playing fast looks like it would just be easy -- just go out and rebound and run.

Coachtube and Tom Izzo

Of course we know that is not the case. Playing with a tempo consists of many details that go into a successful transition offense.

Coach Bozzella’s transition offense starts in practice. 

Here are 3 drills that Coach Bozzella believes will help make a better transition offensive team:

1) 2 Man Layups

The two man layups drill works on the small details of a transition offense.

In this workout, we are looking to work on jump stops, passing and running wide to score the basketball. 

The objective of the drill is to score 25 layups each side -- so 50 total in 2 minutes.

This will help create the proper pace and perfect trips up and down the court. 

This needs to be done precisely to be able to finish the drill on time. 

Watch the video demo here.....


2) Rebound - Outlet - Long Pass Drill 

The Rebound - Outlet - Long Pass drill is done to create good habits.

The habit of passing ahead and creating spacing are the key points to a good offense. 

Start on the baseline with 2 players wide on the corners ready to run around a cone full court on a missed shot.

The goal is to get between 142-150 points in 4 minutes.

Scoring of the game consists of: 1 point for layup, 2 points for 2’s, and 3 points for 3’s, and a team would lose a point on any missed layup.

Watch the video demo here......


3) Raptor Drill

The Raptor Drill is designed to put the offense in game-like situations where the offense is at an advantage.

It consists usually of a 4 on 3 drill or a 3 on 2 → 2 on 1 drill. 

Seton Hall’s philosophy is that they want to score in 8 seconds or less; therefore, they put 8 seconds on the shot clock for this drill.

Keep score -- and the loser will run after. 

Watch the video demo here......


A really good transition offensive team is a nightmare to guard. 

But, how do you practice it and implement it?

Coach Bozzella creates quick hitters that can improve your transition offense game in and game out.

This course is filled with concepts that will make your team better in the transition.

Why You Must be Careful About Celebrity Weight Loss and Ask Henry Cavill | MuscleTech

 

  • Author Brian Murray

Do ever find yourself jealous of those fabulous figures you see on the red carpet and in the movies, and wonder what is the secret behind celebrity weight loss? A celebrity might get caught with some candid photos of him or her on the beach, not looking so fit, and then a month or two later they're posing for shots that show off their fabulously toned figure or ripped abs. What really is the secret behind celebrity weight loss, and why do we say it's good to be careful of what you see happening with those superstars?

Favorite foods, Kal, and cardio - we talked to Henry Cavill about some of his favorite things, and found out why sweet potatoes are not among them.

One thing to remember about celebrity weight loss is that they often don't care too much about their health but about their looks. They are paid to look a certain way and many are willing to sacrifice their overall health in order to achieve that look. Crash dieting, dangerous supplements that do nothing but cause an artificially high heart rate, and even surgery is not unusual when it comes to celebrity weight loss. Sure, they look good but how much damage have they done to themselves overall? Using dangerous products or following dangerous programs can cause long-term damage to the heart, metabolism, blood sugar, and muscle tone. In some extreme cases it can even shorten one's life! So while celebrity weight loss may look good when they're filming a movie or showing up for an awards show, it won't look so good a few years from now when they're suffering the consequences.

In some cases however celebrity weight loss is achieved through safe and natural means, and this is something that may interest you as well. Many celebrities hire personal trainers and yoga instructors, especially when preparing for a certain movie role or when getting into shape for a special occasion, and in this regard you can do the same thing. The same trainers that work on celebrity weight loss often have programs that they design and then make available through DVD sets you can follow at home. For example, Debbie Sieber's Slim in 6 program can slim you down and get you toned in six weeks, safely and effectively. Tony Horton has trained many celebrities and also has many DVD sets you can follow for the same results. And trainers like this will no doubt tell you that safe and effective celebrity weight loss can be achieved but only if a program is followed carefully, along with the proper diet and nutrition program.

You can achieve results much like the celebrity weight loss you see if you follow a safe program and make sure those programs are designed by experts. Rather than risking your health and safety through extreme measures as some celebrities do, follow the better route of using the same trainers and programs they do! After all, no amount of weight loss and toning, even if it rivals celebrity weight loss, is worth risking your health and your safety for the long-term.

You should not be embarrassed about wanting to get into better shape. You can shed those pounds with proven workouts like P90X and Hip Hop Abs!

Psychosocial Impacts of Covid-19 Pandemic. And 2020 Conspiracy Theories That Turned Out to be True

 

  • Author Bunny Tawanda Chigudu

What caused the Covid-19 pandemic? What are the challenges experienced during and after (if it ends)? When and how is it going to end? These questions are raised everyday and everyone seems to have different answers. Every answer is infused with a political, religious and emotional charge. The Covid-19 pandemic has inspired controversy and indeed evoked a global fear. Many countries, territories have imposed lockdowns encouraging citizens to self-isolate at home while maintaining physical distance in public to curtail the spread of the disease. The measures include compulsory or recommended confinement, curfews and quarantines. While these restrictions are effective as so far proven, the problems they are creating cannot go unnoticed. Some of the measures put forth relinquished immense authority to governments to undermine people's rights. Successful lockdowns require a strong social contract with the citizens. Psychologically and socially, the catastrophic virus has created within individuals, families, communities and nations a sense of insecurity and impotence. The pandemic is itself a traumatizing event, a stressor that has left many distressed or emotionally damaged. This pandemic has profound impacts on humanity. Covid-19 unleashed untold suffering, swallowing even the innocent. It is one of the major psychosocial catastrophes experienced in human history since World War 2. It is a complex emergency, an accidental harm that is causing traumatic experiences. The global calamity brought with it mental suffrage. The probability of psychosocial disorders increase with increased uncertainties pertaining to its containment.

Sit back, grab some popcorn 🍿 while we review all the things we said two years ago that turned out to be true. Eat Like Your Life Depends on it Tee Shirt: http://bit.ly/myoxcience

Traumatizing experiences of lockdown, forced isolation and police brutality have a negative effect on people's immediate environment especially in our modern "disciplinary society ``. The traumatized may suffer from a wide range of disorders such as conduct disorders. Psychologically, persons under investigation (PUI) in suspected cases of infection are affected. The ones placed under coerced quarantine suffer from separation anxiety and fear. Moreover, persons with damaged selves are more susceptible to psychological distress. Many are going through eyewitness trauma where thinking and feeling are altered by the events taking place. People who have a history of exposure to previous psychic trauma, those who witnessed violence and death easily breakdown. To support this, enforced restrictions by armed soldiers and police, who are often accused by rights groups of using excessive force especially in poor neighborhoods, can trigger re-experiences of eyewitness trauma experienced during political crises and post-election violence in most African states. The heavy presence of armed law enforcement agents in the streets drives people into a panic mode. There are reports here in Zimbabwe where the police forces have clashed with people accused of flouting lockdown restrictions in scenes decried by some as excessive and detestable. In South Africa, videos circulated on social media showed security forces intimidating and forcing civilians to squat and roll on the ground for allegedly violating lockdown. In Kenya, there was fury and tensions flared over police brutality amid coronavirus curfew. The implementation of curfews was widely criticized. It was reported that in Kenya, the death toll from curfew enforcement had already exceeded the coronavirus death toll of one by March 27. In Rwanda, tensions boiled over, the police shot dead people. Elsewhere, the Philippines President Rodrigo Duerte announced emphatically that those who will flout the restrictions would be shot at. French President Emmanuel Macron reiterated that his soldiers are trained to subdue enemies of the state and to kill. He warned would be demonstrators amid the country's lockdown. All these documented incidents have renewed anger over police brutality, breakdown of mutual trust and respect between law enforcement and community members.

The systemic political management of the virus becomes more lethal than the biological threat posed by the virus itself. Scholars like Foucault and Orwell realised that in the state of emergency, whether it is war, plague, natural disaster, discipline and order are easier to obtain for the ruling elite. The power of political officials is at its greatest, its most unrestrained, in a state of emergency. To elaborate, the Covid-19 crisis is being exploited by governments to pass undemocratic legislation and exert stronger social control over the populations.

The novelty of being locked down has affected us emotionally. We have become uncertain of how the world will look like when it is over, or when it will be. We are suffering from some form of grief individually as well as collectively. In the words of Melanie Verwoerd, former ANC MP and SA Ambassador to Ireland, "...it is destroying our sense of safety and this causes us to feel anticipatory grief on a scale never felt before``. David Kessier points out that we are most prone at the moment to what he calls 'anticipatory grief`. We are grieving because we fear economic uncertainty, people are dying and we do not know if it will happen to us. What is happening in society today is societal stress, which is characterized by the fact that it is affecting many people simultaneously. Stress is a natural and inescapable accompaniment of living but its effects are deleterious. Stress ultimately becomes biological. Physically, worried and anxious persons develop lowered bodily resistance to infection thus making them more vulnerable to coronavirus infection. A stressed individual gets colds, sinusitis and sore throats. A vicious cycle may set in, that is, the more run down she/he becomes, the less vitality she/he can bring to bear on psychological problems. The more these problems mount, the greater the toll on physical health.

The pandemic has turned people into psychological casualties. By definition, psychological casualties are individuals who have been so overwhelmed by their circumstances that they no longer function in everyday life within the parameters and constraints laid down by their own communities. This inability to function may manifest itself in many forms. This is quite evident as we have seen and heard reports of people protesting against their lot by acting out and becoming anti-social. In retaliation to alleged police brutality, some resorted to vigilante activity. Chaos reigns supreme in supermarkets and liquor stores as people are up in arms with anti-riot police summoned to disperse huge crowds queuing up for scarce commodities. The law enforcement agents have become external enemies against whom to rage. The police have become so brutally unfriendly that for them it is difficult than meets the eye to separate friend from foe. Food insecurities and continued suffering as workers have been laid off from work will force some people to act against their principles in order to survive and to protect their families. Families and communities lurking on the peripheries of the economic spectrum bear the brunt the most. People in overcrowded settlements are flouting the social distancing rules for lack of sanitary provisions and basic amenities such as water. In high-density suburbs, residents in desperate need of water queue up around boreholes and there have been allegations of sexual abuse (sextortion) and discrimination at these water points.

The lockdown has also affected divorced families. For example, visitation rights of children of divorced parents have been made complex. Parents who share custody of children are affected and discouraged from transporting children unless it is for medical reasons. In South Africa, the government called on parents to keep their children in one place during the lockdown period. During these placements, dependence and rivalry with other siblings may contribute to their breakdown. With the extension of the lockdown, their presence becomes increasingly irksome and a burden to some step-parents who are unwilling and unable to bear the financial burden. The children are treated as the other, servants and made to wait on and run errands for the other children in the home. For children in authoritarian families, the school was a safety valve of escapism from their misery and fetters that bind them to perpetual servitude. The family, which was unable to provide an environment protective enough to consolidate a sense of self, is certainly not protective now. It would seem a large number of individuals are socially inept. Many children manifest psychological distress. However, this distress may be short-lived and not necessarily damaging. If resources, which facilitate mastery and a sense of self-efficacy, are made available to them, this too facilitates coping.

Covid-19 has triggered an education crisis that is unprecedented in scope, duration and impact. Prolonged school closures are grim as they increase child exploitation, child abuse, teen pregnancies among other problems. According to the United Nations( UN), the global school closures in response to the Covid-19 pandemic present an unprecedented risk to children's education, protection and well being. Children have been robbed of their fundamental rights. It makes it even harder for the most vulnerable children to return to school. Across Eastern and Southern Africa, up to 16 million children are no longer accessing critical daily meals at school, violence at home is increasing (UN). In response, the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) announced advanced support during the unprecedented education crisis, while advocating for the safe reopening of schools that adhere to safety guidelines. Furthermore according to UNICEF, in most parts of the world, learning at home has been supported by online tools. However, in Eastern and Southern Africa, internet penetration is constrained. Barely one in five (22%) of households have internet access, while 84% of the rural population, where the bulk of the learners reside, have no electricity. There is substantial evidence of the digital divide , that is, uneven access to technology along race, class, and geographic lines. The most affected are the marginalized, vulnerable children who largely rely on schools for their education, health, safety and nutrition.

While positively the lockdown has become a catalyst for sobriety, others are attempting to anaesthetize and insulate themselves from the lockdown psychic pain through substance abuse. Closer to home, the ban on sale of alcohol and cigarettes has been devastating mentally for South Africans. The ban causes desperation in people and could be a fatal health scare amid the country's fight against Covid-19. There have been reports that desperate imbibers inject themselves with hand sanitizer liquid directly into their veins to get a quick fix, revealed Dr Gerhard Verdoorn from the Griffon Poison Information centre. Medical experts have warned against the use of hand sanitizers as it could be fatal and result in the damage of the brain, heart, and immune system. Other experts have also noted that for people who are addicted, the side effects of abrupt alcohol withdrawal can induce tremors, insomnia and nausea. This could have serious complications; especially if the person is confined at home (think of marital feuds, GBV, child abuse and neglect). Also for moderate alcohol consumers, closure of liquor stores has led to increased anxiety and stress. Other people are unable to block out their pain and become so overwhelmed that their social life is disrupted by psychosomatic symptomatology, anxiety and depression. Psychosomatic symptoms include among others headaches and sleeplessness. People have become overly anxious and agitated. Despair, disillusionment, anger and resentment are the predominant emotions.

The future is uncertain on many experiencing a myriad of disturbing psychological problems particularly those from a large pool of unemployed youth, many of whom are university graduates frustrated with decades of extreme poverty, underdevelopment, and the lack of job opportunities. On a wider geographical scale, countries in Sub-Saharan Africa are viewed as the most stressful in the world due to their socio-economic and political quagmires. The Covid-19 pandemic has become a powerful contributor to add to the already existing legacies of psycho-social cripples that are still to be tackled. Following the height of the pandemic, foreign nationalities who are repatriated to their mother countries where they had previously fled for different reasons among them political persecution and economic turmoil, suffer more mental health and adjustment problems. This is the case with most Zimbabwean nationals who had fled the country and sought refuge in countries like South Africa , Botswana, UK ,China to name a few. Socio-ecological factors compounded by the pandemic thus contribute to mental health outcome in the aftermath of trauma.

Several commendable efforts are being rolled out to help the homeless and the disabled persons from the scourge of coronavirus. However, the exaggerated preferential treatment given to the disabled only justifies the stereotypical views of them as people who are not 'normal` and incapable. Some politicians have braced to this opportunity to settle their cheap political scores and antics. While the pandemic has brought a sense of unity in finding a common purpose to fight it, it has also brutally reminded us of the fundamental faulty lines in our society, in particular inequality, poverty, unemployment and a lack of social justice. Because of corruption, even before the pandemic, there is increasingly little funding available for desperately needed public services such as health care, education, sanitation and housing.

While it was a humanitarian gesture to release prisoners to contain coronavirus and to decongest prison facilities, the congestion on public resources and social welfare provisions are yet to unfold. In my own view, the influx of offenders in jail cells and behind prison walls is a sign of social decay and poor informal controlling mechanisms. The question is why are people committing more crimes no matter how much they are aware of social norms, rules and values, which govern our behavior? The moral compass of society is skewed. The social fabric is hanging with a thread. Paradoxically, to pardon the criminal is to compound the social problem which we are seeking to address because once the ex-convict is free, she/he will resort to secondary deviance resulting from a self-fulfilling prophecy as she/ he suffer rejection, despise, rebuke, and suspicion from members of society. It is a matter of life or death. The war is lost at both ends.

Other challenges being created by African governments responding to Covid-19 are misimformation and undercommunication on the impacts of the pandemic. Bad communication can bear the negative impact of the ability of nations to respond and deal with an impending disaster. African states are accused of window-dressing the true scale of the pandemic. Misinformation hampers the fight for the virus in Africa. By concealing vital information from the public, governments create situations whereby everyone is navigating blind except for the government towards the fight against the pandemic. Inequitable access to information between government and the people results in inequitable levels of commitment. According to Dr Ralph Mathekga, a renowned South African political analyst, honesty is key in managing the pandemic and it is a missing link in our politics in general.

All these and other challenges posed by the pandemic have had an enormous impact on the psyche of our society and are increasing the difficulty of dealing with social behavior. The pandemic, whether induced erroneously through human activity as alleged or a product of natural design and superstitious inclinations , will leave a gigantic stamp not only on the psyche but also on the communities and their social organization. Perceived social support reduces the probability of psychosocial disorders, as do feelings of safety and perceptions of moral and social order. Families and communities ought to bring people together to share their experiences to help them cope in the aftermath of this tragedy. With this global calamity in our midst, psychosocial intervention during and after the pandemic abates, is pertinent.

Concealed Carry: 3,000 Rounds Fired in Columbus, Ohio New Year’s Celebration

by  

Some of us celebrated the new year by hanging out with family or friends and kissing our loved ones. But, unfortunately, many in Columbus, Ohio, decided to celebrate more destructively and dangerously by shooting guns into the sky.


columbus ohio

I’ll bet that everyone reading this post understands the criminal recklessness displayed in celebratory gunfire. So this isn’t going to be a lecture on why blindly shooting rounds all over the place is stupid. Besides, even if this post made it in front of the eyes of the morons who do stuff like this, they would be too tough to accept their actions are objectively wrong.

Instead, I just want to bring to you a report I saw on a local Columbus New NBC 4 website.

Like many police departments around the country, Columbus Police use a sophisticated network of devices situated around the city that “listen” for the sound of gunshots. The system is called ShotSpotter and can give police an idea of where the shots are coming from.

columbus shooting

Shotspotter

The NBC article reported that:

According to Columbus police, ShotSpotter, which does not cover the entire city, produced 455 alerts of guns being fired and detected 3,142 rounds being fired between 11 p.m. on New Year’s Eve and 2 a.m. New Year’s Day.

I recently moved my family a few more miles away from the city of Columbus, Ohio. Oh, and it’s the daily stories like these that confirm the wisdom of that choice.

Columbus Police Sergeant Jow Albert said:

Like I said, that doesn’t cover the entire city, so I know there’s other places in the city that had this — probably just as much, if not more, gunfire that just wasn’t covered by ShotSpotter.

The news report went on to say that police received 184 calls for service for shots fired during the three-hour window. Additionally, police took nine reports of homes struck by gunfire and two reports of vehicles hit by bullets on Friday evening or early Saturday morning.

The property damage is unfortunate, and there are undoubtedly bullets lodged in homes and buildings all over the city that no one knows about yet.

This isn’t a video from this year’s idiocy in Columbus, Ohio, rather it’s from Detroit in 2020.

I’m not a math wizard, but over 3,142 rounds in 3 hours is a lot of shooting. That works out to over 17 rounds a minute! These lunatics have not experienced ammo shortage and have plenty of money to buy rounds. Rational people with a functioning brain do not do this kind of thing, but some obviously do.

It is almost unbelievable that nobody was killed (at least that we know of). But that doesn’t mean there were no adverse effects.

The ABC 4 News article reported on two incidents resulting from the celebratory gunfire.

In one incident, police said a man reported that he and his girlfriend heard several shots in the 3000 block of Sterling Lane shortly after midnight on Saturday. While the couple ran to the girlfriend’s car, something knocked the man to the ground. When he reached the car, he realized he had been shot in the leg. Police said they expect him to recover.

The second story is quite sad.

A woman called Latasha Moncrief said that someone fired a shot that went through her six-year-old daughter’s bedroom window on Friday night. Moncrief said the incident had shaken her daughter up.

She won’t go in that room. She ain’t been in that room. She sleeps in the bed with me now so just talk to her, make sure that I explain to her what happened so that way she could get clear understanding. She’s pretty smart anyway, so she understands.

columbus arial

Finally —

I wish I could apologize for the disparaging tone of this post. But an apology would not be sincere. This kind of reckless disregard for human life isn’t anything to be accepted in any way. If you think it’s harmless to shoot rounds into the sky, you’re wrong. If you know people who do this, I ask you to talk with them and call out the behavior for what it is…criminally reckless.

Columbus Police are asking for anyone with information of any crime that occurred on New Year’s Eve or Day to contact the department at 614-645-4545.
