Do Natural Abilities Determine Your Success at Learning?

Gloucestercitynews.net (Nov. 14, 2019)--It seems that everybody knows the saying that states: “A sound mind in a sound body”. As a matter of fact, it is rightly so. People who opt for a healthy lifestyle can be automatically called wise. Nonetheless, there is also that cohort of people whom somebody might eventually consider to be “not wise” or even “dumb” just because they were born this way. This statement could have not stood farther from the truth as every single individual is wise, intelligent, and creative.

Today, NJ Advance Media published columnist Steve Politi’s provocative story about an unknown New Jersey lawsuit that nearly changed amateur sports forever. John Suk was coaching a junior varsity baseball game for Bound Brook High School when he told a player to slide into third base. What happened next – a sickening “POP!” and a serious ankle fracture – set off a seven-year legal battle that culminated this spring with a surreal trial in Somerset County. All parties agreed: If Suk was found liable for the injury for making such a routine decision, it could have a dramatic impact on high school athletes and parents, and the men and women who coach our youth teams.
