Is Possible the Use of RPE Scale in Coordination Skill Sport: Skateboarding Experience  [PDF]
Tornaghi Michele, Lovecchio Nicola
Open Access Library Journal (OALib Journal) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/oalib.1103465
Abstract:
The Rate of Perceived Exertion scale was widely used in monitoring training session but the feasibility of this approach was not verified in skateboarding training or competition. Thus, the purpose of this brief report was the assessment of a skateboarder using the Rate of Perceived Exertion. Nine months of conditioning about a professional skater were collected after each session. The Rate of Perceived Exertion was interviewed, also, after the most important competition day. Furthermore, the internal training load was evaluated using the indication proposed in scientific community. During the first period of training, the training load was similar than the value obtained in the most official competition of the season. The mean value of Rate of Perceived Exertion collected during the training session was similar to the results declared during the competition. The value of training load in this professional skater was similar to other professional athletes. The trainer could find important practical implication such as the statement that the skater did not reach, on average, the level of overtraining. Further studies could improve the assessment using more detailed stratification about the kind of condition and about the physiological parameters.
Cognitive Training in Soccer: Where Is the Key Point?  [PDF]
Matteo Giuriato, Nicola Lovecchio
Open Access Library Journal (OALib Journal) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/oalib.1104333
Abstract:
Cognitive skills and executive function, in the last years become a golden reference to increase attention social skills and sport success. In particular, soccer is an open skills sport that requires a constant demand of cognitive skills and executive function because the unstable environment defines the decision making. Thus, modern soccer trainer changes the approach avoiding massive conditional exercises and introducing small side games. The purpose of this paper is to investigate what the cognitive training is and what could be an adequate stimulation to improve the executive function in soccer player.

Polish Journal of Sport and Tourism , 2012, DOI: 10.2478/v10197-012-0002-5
Abstract: Introduction. The health-related benefits of physical activity are well known. Participation in a physical activity could improve social well-being, as well as physical and mental health, among children and adolescents. Material and methods. Thus, during Physical Education lessons, over 1500 students were tested with the Bent Arm Hung and the Standing Broad Jump test; according to the instructions given by Eurofit battery. All phases of the test had been run by teachers that collected data relative to lower limb power and upper limbs isometric endurance strength. Results. Females jumped 150 cm (on average) while in Bent Arm Hung scored scantly results. The variability was high in both test. Males jumped over their own height with a variation smaller than females'. About isometric endurance strength the best group was the 16 years (male). Conclusion. These two tests showed in both genders a similar pattern to that of other young Europeans but future research are necessary to separate the correlation about country, rural area of origin and socioeconomic status. It may be concluded that the level of physical activity (and the possibility to play it) was a decisive factor on the level of performance.
Food Habits and Sport Practice According to BMI Categories and Rural/Urban Origin  [PDF]
Andrea Pavanetto, Nicola Lovecchio, Matteo Zago, Antonio La Torre
Open Access Library Journal (OALib Journal) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/oalib.1103150
Abstract:
The juvenile obesity is correlated to dietary and physical activity. Moreover, the rural or urban context could affect other aspects like time available to practice sport or the availability of sport facilities. Thus, this brief report investigated the relationship between origin and food habits in children belonging to different BMI categories. Over than 1400 primary school students were interviewed with their parents about their food habits. All answers were stratified according to origin (rural/urban) and to BMI categories as defined in literature. The percentage of normal weight, overweight and obese children between rural and urban context were similar (p > 0.05). All the BMI categories were familiar to have breakfast and no differences were found between rural or urban context (p > 0.52). Over 70% of children had the principal meal in at least 15 minutes. In particular, all of them used to watch TV during this moment: no differences were found between urban/rural or BMI categories (p = 0.87 and p = 0.98). In general, most of urban children performed physical activity less than seven hours/week, while normal weight subjects were more active than obese one (p = 0.04). We concluded that school promotion and municipalities/institutions intervention could be a good solution to reach all children in environment where the amount of facilities is often poor.
Correlation between Cognitive Functions and Motor Coordination in Children with Different Cognitive Levels  [PDF]
Pietro Luigi Invernizzi, Matteo Crotti, Andrea Bosio, Raffaele Scurati, Nicola Lovecchio
Advances in Physical Education (APE) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ape.2018.81011
Abstract: Cognitive development is related with central nervous system maturation and plays a crucial role for the definition of executive functions such as movement imagination, movement planning and problem-solving. In particular,executive functions are required during complex interactions between players/environment and are also fundamental for motor skills coordination. Although the complex interaction between cognitive and physical outcomes was recognized by several authors, few studies examined the magnitude of the relation between executive functions and motor development according to different stages of cognitive maturation. Thus the aim was the assessment of the relationships between motor skills coordination and executive functions in children with different cognitive level. Ninety healthy male participants were involved in the study where children affected by Down syndrome were, also, recruited. The participants were divided into three groups according to classification of Piaget: concrete, formal
The body: a choir of voices. El cuerpo coro de voces
Chiara Lovecchio
HYBRIS : Revista de Filsofía , 2009,
Abstract: La relación entre corporeidad e identidad personal se presenta problemática. El acercamiento aquí propuesto es el que pasa por el análisis lingüístico a través de la teoría semántica de la referencia identificante y de la teoría pragmática de la reflexividad del enunciado. Punto de encuentro de estas dos posiciones es la teoría de la referencia así que pone el problema de la corporeidad justo en el eje relacional de la fenomenología y el análisis lingüístico.
Time persistency of floating particle clusters in free-surface turbulence
Salvatore Lovecchio,Cristian Marchioli,Alfredo Soldati
Physics , 2013, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevE.88.033003
Abstract: We study the dispersion of light particles floating on a flat shear-free surface of an open channel in which the flow is turbulent. This configuration mimics the motion of buoyant matter (e.g. phytoplankton, pollutants or nutrients) in water bodies when surface waves and ripples are smooth or absent. We perform direct numerical simulation of turbulence coupled with Lagrangian particle tracking, considering different values of the shear Reynolds number (Re{\tau} = 171 and 509) and of the Stokes number (0.06 < St < 1 in viscous units). Results show that particle buoyancy induces clusters that evolve towards a long-term fractal distribution in a time much longer than the Lagrangian integral fluid time scale, indicating that such clusters over-live the surface turbulent structures which produced them. We quantify cluster dynamics, crucial when modeling dispersion in free-surface flow turbulence, via the time evolution of the cluster correlation dimension.
History as Contemporary History in the Thinking of Benedetto Croce  [PDF]
Nicola Conati
Open Journal of Philosophy (OJPP) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojpp.2015.51007
Abstract: In this brief consideration of mine, trying to remain as faithful as possible to the texts taken into exam, I will first try to introduce the concept of history as contemporary history in the thinking of Benedetto Croce, whereas the second part of the reasoning will point toward proving and meditating on how such concept crosses the whole philosophical system of the Italian intellectual. What does contemporary history mean according to Benedetto Croce? Why is the spirit of the historian fundamental in the description of this concept? What kind of connection exists between story and contemporary history? What does pathology of history mean? How does the concept of contemporary history relate to that of awareness, of finished and thinking? These are but a few of the questions to which I tried to find an answer with this essay.
A Survey of Primary Care Offices: Triage of Poisoning Calls without a Poison Control Center

International Journal of Family Medicine , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/417823
Abstract: Poison control centers hold great potential for saving health care resources particularly by preventing unnecessary medical utilization. We developed a four-question survey with three poisoning-related scenarios, based on common calls to our poison center, and one question regarding after-hours calls. We identified primary care provider offices in our poison center's region from an internet search. We contacted these offices via telephone and asked to speak to an office manager or someone responsible for triaging patient phone queries. Using a scripted form, trained investigators questioned 100 consecutive primary care provider offices on how they would handle these poisoning-related calls if there was no poison center to refer their patients to. Results of our survey suggest that 82.5% of poisoning-related calls to primary care offices would be referred to 911 or an emergency department if there was no poison center. These results further support the role that poison centers play in patient care and health care utilization. 1. Background In 2009 US poison control centers (PCCs) handled over 4.2 million calls related to poisonings, drug information, and environmental exposures (e.g., envenomations), including almost 2.5 million human exposures [1]. Over 90% of these exposures occurred at the caller’s residence and 72.5% were managed on site, thereby not requiring an evaluation at a health care facility. These numbers of calls and percentage of on-site management have been consistent for several years [2]. Past work has shown that PCCs can save health care resources [3–11] including the prevention of unnecessary emergency department (ED) visits, and decrease lengths of stay for poisoned patients [4, 12–14]. One study, involving 2007 data from our single PCC, showed a median savings of $33 million in unnecessary health care charges by managing patients at home [11]. A report from the United States Institute of Medicine estimates that the combined activities of all US PCCs save more than $900 million annually [15, 16]. Other reviews have identified the importance of maintaining government’s financial support of PCCs, [15, 17] including one cost analysis that offered an appropriate summary by concluding that “poison control centers offer a large return on investment” [18]. Despite these data PCCs continue to be challenged with budget cuts [17, 19, 20]. Our PCC routinely conducts quality assurance surveys to identify our need and role within our community. We interview callers and health care providers on several issues including their satisfaction with our
Announcers and confessors: How people self-disclose depression in health panels  [PDF]
Nicola L. Coe
Health (Health) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/health.2013.51011
Abstract:

Focus groups can be used to explore sensitive topics and have been found to increase the likelihood and depth of disclosure of personal and sensitive information in comparison to individual interviews. This article focuses on how people make self-disclosures in group research settings, specifically self-disclosure of depression. Data was collected from twelve health panel groups, held in Somerset, England. Health panels are a focus group-based method where members of the public are brought together to discuss a variety of topics including sensitive ones. The topic discussed by the health panel was attitudes to help-seeking for stress and depression. In this paper I conceptualize two new types of discloserwhich I term “announcers” and “confessors” and illustrate how normalizing language can facilitate disclosures. This study has important implications for focus group-based research and for health professionals who deal with stigmatized conditions such as depression.
