The weekend and I am in search of something different for posts….continuing my attempts at FYI.
The Olympics is approaching and there is a try to get a certain “sport” that is pressuring the committees to include it…..the sport is “pole dancing”……not just for strip clubs anymore….at least that is their belief……
Normally associated with seedy night clubs, pole dance is desperate to distance itself from of an undesirable image, and supporters believe the gymnastic and acrobatic elements of ‘Pole Sport’ warrants Olympic Games recognition.
In 2016, The International Pole Sport Federation (IPSF) submitted a request to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) for Pole Sport to be officially acknowledged as a sport.
Pole Sport practitioners are working hard to challenge stereotypes, rid itself of preconceptions and promote a family friendly and competitive environment in order to gain recognition, which is something as diverse as breakdancing has provisionally achieved.
RT Sport hooked up with Nyashi Dance school in Moscow to find out why Pole Sport deserves Olympic recognition.
Okay my thoughts…..the Olympics are for actually sports…..to me there are too many “sports” included that should be eliminated….horse dancing, sailing, circumcised (yes I know it is the wrong word) swimming…a few year back they eliminated softball but kept horse dancing….why?
What is next a “spin class” event for the Olympics….how about mountain climbing?
This could be the hot ticket if the outfits befit the idea of “pole dancing”…..talented yes…….. a sport not really.
That is my offerings for the day….I need to nurse an aching back….enjoy your Sunday and thanx for your time.
I know that I am throwing a lot of space stuff at my readers…….one I think it is a waste of money and two some really “crazy” ideas are out there and I want my readers to know about them.
There seems to be a big push of start the process of the colonization of Mars by 2023……now the question is how do we get all those people to make the colonization possible?
There is an answer for that question…there is always an answer….no one ever says, “How the Hell do I know”……
A new study by researchers from the Dexeus Women’s Health research network in Barcelona found that frozen sperm samples survived when exposed to microgravity.
That could mean that sperm banks in space are possible, providing future space travelers with the ability to reproduce in space with sperm samples brought up from Earth.
“Some studies suggest a significant decrease in the motility of a human, fresh sperm sample,” Montserrat Boada who presented the research yesterday at an annual meeting in Vienna, Austria, said, as quoted by The Guardian. “But nothing has been reported on the possible effects of gravitational differences on frozen human gametes, in which state they could be transported from Earth to space.”
