I love cycling and started riding because of Lance Armstrong.  I was not shocked when the news broke that he was doping but I was disappointed because I followed Lance through all his Tour de France victories.  It was still amazing that he was able to recover from cancer and trained so hard to put American cyclists on the map.

Seems to be a positive way to influence a player during a game. Then once the game is over be more specific about what needs to be fixed. Get your act together can be a coaches way of focusing an athlete without adding stress to an already stressful situation during a game.

Prescribing Rights in Physiotherapy and Physical Therapy

Prescribing Rights in Physiotherapy and Physical Therapy | Sports Ethics: McGeough, M. | Scoop.it

Recent developments in the extended scope of the physiotherapist and physical therapist are moving towards prescribing rights for our profession.  Following a lengthy campaigning by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) in July 2012 in a ground-breaking change to their role Physiotherapists in the UK were given new responsibilities to independently prescribe medicines to their patients.

This article exposes readers to the expanding responsibilities and abilities of physical therapists. Physical therapists may eventually have the knowledge and ability to prescribe medication to their patients. They must use ethical judgment to properly medicate their patients.

The title is pretty self explanatory, however this is still a good article to read about if physical therapist should have the same prescribing right as other physicians.

Competition is not unethical. It is reasonable that winners be rewarded, even if their victories have an element of chance; this is the essence of a game, and games are fundamental to humanity.
