Costello's insight:

Every time I watch a video that Sports Science does my mind is always blown away.  This scoop in particular was extremely interesting because it looked into the absolute dominance of Jon Jones and how he does it.  In the video they briefly go over his advantages that he brings into the octagon, which include his massive wingspan and reach that gives him a more than favorable advantage in the fight. They also highlight on some of the impeccable force that some of his special moves produce such as his superman punch and spinning elbow.  This article combines sports and science in the most captivating way possible and really allows you to  easily assimilate the attributes of these fighters to real world situations.

Costello's insight:

Teachers, leave those kids alone.  I think this article really speaks volume to Pink Floyd's famous hit.  It is not saying that homework is unproductive or unnecessary at all but that the quality and quantity of the homework given out has a deep impact.  As a student I can completely relate to those homework assignments that you find yourself doing, while asking yourself at the same time "What is this even doing for me?". Homework can be one of the most frustrating things in the world especially after a long day at school.  I think its important that children get to play and relax after these long days because they are just kids.
