Currently, only the page for Bicycling Science has any content. The other pages will be developed later (maybe in early 2014) mainly by providing links to selected high-quality resources on the web.
Even though the pages below are labeled "The Science of...", of course much more is involved, and for most of these a more accurate label would be "The Art & Science (including Psychology) and Drama & Business,..."
Science of Bicycling has some interesting
content now — about
the mystery of Floyd Landis (was he chemically supercharged in the 2006
Tour?) and more, plus (as a non-science bonus) some History of the Tour
de France — and it might be developed further later, but probably not until early 2014. I used to be excited about the TdF, until discovering that PEDs had become such an important factor in the race.
• Do-it-Yourself Juggling and Using Transfer to Teach Ballroom/Swing Dancing
• The Science of Running - currently, Running Tempo & Music Tempo is the beginning of more content that might be here by mid-2014, mainly with links to web-pages I'll be finding.
• The Science of Nutrition - this won't be developed for awhile, maybe in early-to-mid 2014.
• The Science of Rowing - this won't be developed for awhile, maybe in early-to-mid 2014.
• The Science of Swimming - this won't be developed for awhile, maybe in early-to-mid 2014 or later.
• The Science of Competition - this won't be developed for awhile, maybe in early-to-mid 2014.
• The Science of Sports-Games - this won't be developed for awhile, maybe in early-to-mid 2014; eventually it will have pages for football (global & American), basketball, baseball, tennis, hockey,...
• The Science of Sports Medicine - this won't be developed for awhile, maybe in early-to-mid 2014.
• Using Sports in Education, as illustrative examples and real-world applications — for science (in the areas above), math, and engineering, psychology & sociology, business & economics,... — that will provide educational motivation for students who find these topics more interesting in the context of athletics. - this won't be developed for awhile, but eventually it could be a major area
• And other areas will be added later.
This website for Whole-Person Education has TWO KINDS OF LINKS:
an ITALICIZED LINK keeps you inside a page, moving you to another part of it, and
a NON-ITALICIZED LINK opens another page. Both keep everything inside this window,
so your browser's BACK-button will always take you back to where you were.
