TRUMBULL, Conn., September 14, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Saturday afternoons in autumn mean college sports and the return of amateur athletes to their fields, gyms and stadiums. Student-athletes can stay healthier, heal more easily from soft-tissue injuries, and return to their sport more quickly with ZetrOZ Systems' sustained acoustic medicine (sam®) technology, now covered by secondary insurance for many colleges.
On average, more than 200,000 athletes in major National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) sports are injured every year, according to a five-year study published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 2015.
Researchers found high injury rates across many of the sports kicking off this fall. Among all sports, college football had the highest raw number of injuries - an estimated 47,199 over the five years. It also had one of the highest injury rates of all sports, with 9.2 athletes injured for every 1,000 athlete-exposures to potential injury (one athlete's participation in one competition or one practice).
Women's soccer had the next-highest injury rate among fall sports, with 8.4 injuries per 1,000 athlete-exposure. Among all sports, men's wrestling had the highest injury rate, at 13.1 injuries per 1,000 athlete-exposures. Women's gymnastics, at 10.4 injuries per 1,000 athlete exposures, had the greatest injury rate among women's sports.
Almost one out of four athlete injuries required more than seven days of recuperation before the athlete could return to practice or competition. Nearly half (45%) of all injuries were sprains and strains, and of those injuries, about one in four required a week of recuperation.
ZetrOZ Systems' sustained acoustic medicine (sam®) technology is proven to reduce the recovery period for those kinds of soft-tissue injuries. More than 40 clinical studies have shown that the ZetrOZ sam® X1 and 2.0 devices reduce pain and improve function without using invasive surgery or potentially addictive painkillers.
"We work with college athletic trainers nationwide, and we know that our sam® devices help heal athletes' soft-tissue injuries more quickly and help players return to practices and games sooner," said Dr. George K. Lewis, founder and CEO of ZetrOZ Systems.
A 2022 study, by authors that included three respected college athletic trainers, examined sam® usage by 239 healthcare providers for treating injuries to tendons and ligaments, joints, large muscle groups, and bone. They reported that sam® provided clinical improvement in under two weeks in more than two-thirds of cases (68.9%) and resulted in a 50% reduction in pain medication. The study concluded sam® is an "effective, safe, easy-to-use, noninvasive, comfortable, and versatile therapeutic for healing musculoskeletal injuries."
In addition, a 2022 article published in Open Orthopedics Journal surveyed athletic trainers working in professional, collegiate, and military sports medicine to evaluate ZetrOZ's sam® technology. The study found that sam® is a "fast, simple topical application yielding rapid healing without causing additional trauma to suffering athletes." The study also included follow-up interviews with the athletic trainers. The researchers reported that "Candid input from professional athletic and military ATs shows a consensus that sam® is a superior healing technology."
A 2015 level 4 clinical study by sports medicine experts at Ohio State University and Duke University found sustained acoustic medicine delivered via ZetrOZ's sam® reduced pain and improved strength in patients' medial/lateral elbow tendons and Achilles tendons.
Sustained acoustic medicine works by increasing blood vessel diameters to improve blood flow. That increases oxygenated hemoglobin at the therapy site and removes cytokine enzymes and cellular waste, resulting in more rapid healing and reduced pain.
ZetrOZ's sam® devices are the only FDA-cleared wearable ultrasound units approved for daily use at home. ZetrOZ's technology was developed, in part, with funding from the National Institute of Health, National Science Foundation, Department of Defense, and NASA. ZetrOZ Systems products are designed and manufactured in the United States and are protected by 46 U.S. patents.

The Motor Enclave 'Motomural'
The Motor Enclave 'Motomural' as seen from the East side of I-75.
TAMPA, Fla., September 14, 2023 (Newswire.com) - The Motor Enclave (TME) unveiled Tampa Bay's newest mural today, on the I-75 side of its 37,000 square foot Event Center just North of the I-4 interchange. The mural was designed and executed by prominent Philadelphia-based muralist Glossblack. Branded as the "Motomural," the nearly 5,000 square foot mural is destined to become a landmark at this main interchange to Tampa and Orlando that sees over 142,000 vehicles a day.
The Motor Enclave founder, Brad Oleshansky, collaborated with Glossblack closely on the project, keeping it under wraps until painting began on September 1st. The mural features a combination of motorsports-themed iconography, vintage roadside references and a few related to Tampa history and culture.
"The goal of this mural is to pay homage to many things at once; The Motor Enclave branding, classic Americana, motorsports, patina & graffiti elements, and of course a nod to Tampa. It's a 'favorite things' mural for TME that speaks to how unique they are," said Jimmy McMenamin of Glossblack. "Much of my artwork revolves around balancing color while creating building blocks that tell a larger story. I love all things typography, vintage signage, neon lettering, dynamic shadow/lighting, and retro Americana. For that reason, working with TME was the perfect fit."
"I am thrilled to have this piece of the project come to fruition. It's been a fun process working with Glossblack to make this project come to life," said Oleshansky. "It's been just as fun keeping the artwork a surprise for my team here at TME. But the wait is finally over and what better way to show off our soon-to-open Event Center."
The Motomural is now visible for all to see on the West side of I-75 just North of the I-4 interchange.
Jimmy McMenamin is an artist, muralist & graffiti writer from the Greater Philadelphia area. In 2008, he created Glossblack, LLC as a way to offer his artistic skills to business owners, homeowners, corporations, etc. Glossblack's client list is extensive, having provided wall art for the likes of Disney, Google, Comcast, Red Bull, Under Armour, 76ers, Eagles, Gap, Budweiser, & Dunkin. Today, he can be found in his South Jersey studio painting, screen printing, designing, and planning for upcoming mural work.

Filmmakers Launch ‘The Cure for Hate’ Educational and Social Impact Campaign to Combat Rising National Hate Crimes Crisis
Tony McAleer in 'The Cure for Hate: Bearing Witness to Auschwitz,' directed by Peter Hutchison
NEW YORK, September 27, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Author and anti-hate activist Tony McAleer and filmmaker Peter Hutchison of Eat the Moon Films are proud to announce the launch of THE CURE FOR HATE, a nationwide educational and social impact campaign designed to combat the rising national hate crimes crisis this fall.
"Several years in the making — from the U.S. to Poland to Canada — we’re thrilled to begin sharing 'The Cure for Hate' and our social impact program with high schools and communities across America," said Hutchison. "Stories like these are a powerful tool, and can play a crucial role in helping to turn the tide of racism and intolerance."
The program will debut in Pittsburgh on Sept. 27 with Dismantling Conspiracy Theories and Holocaust Denial: a film screening and panel discussion hosted by the Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh. The Cure for Hate team, former neo-Nazi turned anti-hate activist Tony McAleer and filmmaker Peter Hutchison (the upcoming "The Invisible Doctrine. The Secret History of Neoliberalism," “Healing from Hate,” “Requiem for the American Dream”) will also visit area secondary schools to engage with students, screen the film, and deliver the curriculum. THE CURE FOR HATE: BEARING WITNESS TO AUSCHWITZ will screen at the Eradicate Hate Global Summit. The program will also host a Teen Screen event with Film Pittsburgh in late September.
The engagements in Pittsburgh mark the first stop in an extensive screening tour targeting secondary schools and select communities across the country with stops in Oregon with Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education, Idaho with the Wassmuth Center for Human Rights, Houston with TAPS Academy as part of its Anti-Hate Week, Tennessee with TN Holocaust Commission, and more to be announced shortly.
"I am really excited to share my journey and the history of the Holocaust with young people in a way that teaches important lessons to ensure it never happens again," said McAleer.
In the Jewish tradition, tshuvah means "return" and describes the return to God and our fellow human beings that is made possible through repentance for our wrongs.
THE CURE FOR HATE: BEARING WITNESS TO AUSCHWITZ follows Tony McAleer, a former Neo-Nazi and Holocaust denier, who went on to become a founding member of the anti-hate activist group Life After Hate. Profoundly aware and deeply ashamed of the lineage of hate he'd once promoted, McAleer had long-contemplated traveling to Auschwitz in the spirit of tshuvah — to bear witness to the inconceivable ravages of the Holocaust and deepen his personal work against the rise of extremist politics.
This project documents his profoundly personal journey of atonement to Auschwitz/Birkenau — exploring the conditions that allowed for the rise of fascism in 1930s Europe; shedding a unique light upon how men get into, and out of, violent extremist groups; and serving as a cautionary tale for our time that underscores the dangers in allowing hate to be left unchecked.
"The Cure for Hate brings the lessons of Auschwitz into the present, as living history — at this crucial moment, with hate and intolerance on the rise and continuing to dominate the headlines," said Hutchison. "Tony’s journey stands as a remarkable example of what is possible. After all, if a hardened neo-Nazi can find his way back from hate, then what lessons can it hold for the rest of us?"
Thanks to a grant from The Center for Prevention Programs & Partnerships “Targeted Violence & Terrorism Prevention Program,” THE CURE FOR HATE: BEARING WITNESS TO AUSCHWITZ aims to use the film and the lived experiences of author and subject Tony McAleer to counter the rising tide of intolerance and violent extremism. The impact program was created to engage vulnerable youth and select communities and — through the use of experiential learning exercises and the exploration of history — enhance resilience to indoctrination and radicalization.
"In this time of rising anti-Semitism, this film serves as both a memory and a warning of what hate can lead to if left unchecked," said McAleer.Contact Information:

Travel & Lifestyle Expert Carmen Ordonez Shares Highlights of Hispanic Heritage Month in Florida
Lifestyle Journalist Carmen Ordonez Offers Ideas for Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month in 'La Florida'

On September 14, Travel Expert and Founder of Viva Fashion, Carmen Ordonez, partnered with VISIT FLORIDA to showcase the rich culture, delectable cuisines, and enchanting destinations. Find out about the vibrant spectrum of Hispanic heritage and traditions flourishing across the diverse landscapes of Florida.
HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH
Hispanic Heritage Month takes place every year to honor and celebrate the cultures, contributions, and extensive histories of Hispanic Americans. For one month every year, September 15 through October 15, Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated nationwide through festivals, art shows, conferences, community gatherings and much more. They routinely highlight the best destinations that offer Hispanic culture, cuisine, and events. As a Floridian, Carmen can attest to the fact that Florida offers all three not just during Hispanic Heritage Month, but all year round.
CONSIDER THE CULTURE WHEN CHOOSING A PLACE TO VACATION
If travelers are looking to connect with a community and with people who live in a specific destination, they need to understand where they come from, their culture and their traditions. This allows them to get a sense of unique experiences they can look forward to and expect while there, such as authentic cuisine the area is known for or attractions that bring the destination’s rich history to life. From delightful flavors of Latin cuisine to mesmerizing art and music, there is a complete cultural journey across the Sunshine State, honoring the Hispanic community that has had a significant and lasting impact on the state.
CELEBRATE HISPANIC HERITAGE
The influence of Hispanic culture is deeply ingrained in Florida’s rich history, and its legacy is evident across Florida today, as the state is home to the third-largest Latino population in the country. During Hispanic Heritage Month, travelers can experience lively parades, colorful festivals, captivating exhibitions, and educational seminars, designed to enrich the understanding of the Hispanic community and its importance to Florida’s identity.
OTHER WAYS TO EXPERIENCE THIS CULTURE
There is a wide variety of Hispanic cultures and traditions across Florida today, reflecting the state’s cultural mosaic, from salsa dancing in Miami or Orlando to cigar-rolling in Tampa’s Ybor City, Little Havana in Miami, or Key West. Stroll down the cobblestones of St. George’s Street in historic St. Augustine or discover the mastery of the renowned Spanish artist Salvador Dali at the Salvador Dali Museum in St. Petersburg.

LOS ANGELES, September 30, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Today, the Overdogs Podcast drops another banger episode featuring host @IceBagz_, co-host @Mac Mally, and new Co-Host @Platinum Mike Perry with guests Darren Till and Yoel Romero.
Mike Perry is the “toughest human being on the planet,” according to Joe Rogan, and he makes his podcast hosting debut with old foe Darren Till as his very first guest.
Platinum Mike Perry Said: "I'm stoked to be part of the Kanpai Media fam and share my fighting experience, perspective, and journey on the OverDogs Podcast — it's for sure one of the best shows out there in the Combat Sports world and I can't wait to connect with all the 2MM fans out there that have watched the show so far and also give back to my fanbase and sport!"
Darren Till and Mike Perry go toe to toe for 40 minutes in this wild, uncensored exchange live on air. In the opening minutes, Till tells Perry, “I just wanna fight you and knock you clean out.” Till later added, “Your specialty is power and pure toughness. My specialty is beating people like you.” Till and the team give their prediction for Alex Pereira vs Jiri Prochazka at UFC 295.
They all discuss the probability of Mike Perry fighting Logan Paul if Dillon Danis pulls out and the suit by Logan’s fiance, Nina, against Danis. Mike talks about his new contract with Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship.
@IceBagz_ said: "We're thrilled to welcome Platinum Mike Perry as a new co-host to the OverDogs Podcast family, he's no doubt already added a layer of excitement and relevancy to the show as we are in the works of scaling the series to other premium leagues, conversation verticals and cultures, as we continue our exciting journey in scaling the podcast."
Till candidly discusses his business that was sued and later sold off. Finally, Darren Till and Mike Perry verbally agreed to fight in approximately 8 months in the boxing or bare-knuckle ring.
Yoel Romero talks about his car chase in Jordan with Mike Perry, his next opponent, and his controversial Israel Adesanya’s loss at UFC 248 that changed the trajectory of his MMA career. Yoel also lays out his plan for the UFC middleweight division, Sean Strickland’s first title defense, Dricus Du Plessis and Jared Cannonier.
“If he had more time to recover, the fight would have been different.” Yoel shared his feelings that Israel Adesanya needed more rest after his KO loss at UFC 281 to Alex Pereira and KO win just 5 months later at UFC 287.
Yoel also hints at who his next fight will be with. Watch the episode to see who Yoel Romero will be in the octagon with.
