It’s not uncommon to hear aboutprofessional football players whostruggle later in life as a result of untreated concussions and onelocal high school is hoping toprevent this type of thing formore than just football players.In late January, Woodside HighSchool began a pilot programwith about 20 of the 35 boys’lacrosse players to use a new com-puter-based test called ImmediatePost-Concussion Assessment andCognitive Testing, or ImPACTtotest for concussions. It was devel-oped by clinical experts and is themost-widely used and most scien-tifically validated computerizedconcussion evaluation system.Although the test measures base-line symptoms of concussions,ultimately the physician makesthe decision if the athlete can goback out and play.Amisconception everyone,not just students, have is that tohave a concussion you have to becompletely knocked out,” saidSteven Harman, head coach of theboyslacrosse team. “The causesof concussions — a lot of peoplethink it has to be an explosive bighit — but a lot of the time it’s justtwisting.”Head injuries are on the rise forathletes at all levels of play. Anestimated 4 million to 5 millionconcussions occur annually, withan increase emerging among mid-dle school athletes, according todata on the ImPACTwebsite.Concussions take time to heal andif athletes return to play too soon— while the brain is still healing— there is a greater chance of hav-

Tucked away on the northern endof downtown San Mateo is abustling stretch of road with adiverse array of neighborhood-serving businesses. Taquerias, thrift stores, smallretail shops, a Laundromat andLatino-themed markets dot thestretch of North B Street from theCaltrain station to Tilton Avenueat the northern end. In the middleof it is the active Peninsula ItalianAmerican Social Club and a vacantlaundry building and adjacent lot. Agroup of city officials, mer-chants and property owners saythe street has potential and areorganizing to explore ways toaddress concerns about loitering,unkempt buildings, poor lightingand why the street has become seg-regated from the downtown hub.Last week, the North B StreetImprovement Initiative kicked off with a focus group for coun-cilmembers and city staff, police,merchants, property owners, resi-dents and various communityassociations. The effort originatedin a plan to construct a new marketon the vacant property and rolledinto an organized initiative tomake larger improvements. “It’s an impetus for us all tocome together on the street and seehow we want to move forward,”said Marcus Clarke, the city’s eco-nomic development manager.“How can we step up and connect[North] B Street to the rest of downtown better, create a placewhere people want to come and toaddress some of those challengesthat would not bring people downthere.”But the area is uninviting andpeople outside of the communitydon’t frequent it often because it’sconsidered unsafe, dirty and amajority of the properties havenot been adequately maintained foryears, said Ben Toy, president of

Ambulance hijacked with sleeping worker inside
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. —Authorities say an Albuquerque ambu-lance worker catching some sleep inthe back of his vehicle woke up to findhimself the victim of a carjacking.Police have arrested a man and awoman accused of driving off in theambulance around 3 a.m. Saturdaywhile it was parked outside LovelaceMedical Center in Albuquerque.Police spokesman Elder Guevarasays the employee was asleep in thevehicle’s rear but was able to jump outwhen the ambulance slowed near anintersection. Officers then pursued theambulance as it headed eastbound, andthen westbound, on Interstate 40.The ambulance finally came to a reston I-40, over Tramway, after authori-ties used spikes to deflate the ambu-lance’s tires.Police have not released the namesof the suspects or the victim, who wasuninjured.
College man-in-undies sculpture causes stir
WELLESLEY, Mass. — Aremark-ably lifelike sculpture of a man sleep-walking in nothing but his underpantshas made some Wellesley College stu-dents a bit uncomfortable, but thepresident of the prestigious women’sschool says that’s all part of the intel-lectual process.The sculpture entitled “Sleepwalker”of a man in an eyes-closed, zombie-like trance is part of an exhibit bysculptor Tony Matelli at the college’sDavis Museum. It was placed at a busyarea of campus on Monday, a few daysbefore the official opening of theexhibit, and prompted an online stu-dent petition to have it removed.The sculpture is a “source of appre-hension, fear, and triggering thoughtsregarding sexual assault” for many,according to the petition, which hadnearly 300 signees on Wednesday. Thepetition started by junior Zoe Magidcalled on President H. Kim Bottomlyto have the artwork removed.That appeared unlikely, according to a joint statement issued Wednesday byBottomly and museum Director LisaFischman.“The very best works of art have thepower to stimulate deeply personalemotions and to provoke unexpectednew ideas, and this sculpture is noexception,” the statement said. Thesculpture “has started an impassionedconversation about art, gender, sexu-ality and individual experience, bothon campus and on social media.”The sculpture was placed outdoorsspecifically to get a reaction and toconnect the indoor exhibition withthe world beyond, Fischman said.“I love the idea of art escaping themuseum and muddling the line betweenwhat we expect to be inside (art) andwhat we expect to be outside (life),”she wrote.Freshman Bridget Schreiner told TheBoston Globe she was “freaked out” thefirst time she saw the sculpture, think-ing for a moment that a real, nearlynaked man was lingering on campus.“This could be a trigger for studentswho have experienced sexual assault,”she said.“I find it disturbing, but in a goodway,” English professor Sarah Wall-Randell said. “I think it’s meant to beoff-putting. It’s a schlumpy guy in under-pants in an all-women environment.”The exhibit opens Thursday andcloses July 20.

ransportation has always been diffi-cult. Walking was the only means of getting around for tens of thousandsof years. Principles of physics have alwaysbeen a great curiosity of mankind andalthough use of these principles was some-times hard to grasp by most people, a fewhad the “mental bent” to see applicationsthat no other man could see at first.Bicycles and engines began to be perfect-ed in the 1800s. What to do with them now?The bicycle was simple and small enoughfor all to understand but the engine was con-siderably more difficult. But there werethose who had the insight to begin to useboth for getting around. The engine exhib-ited much potential when hooked up to abicycle and a common means of transporta-tion that had been around for ages — thewagon/carriage. By the end of the 1800s,the automobile became the most worked onform of transportation but many werebecoming intrigued by the thought of extending direction of experiments into theatmosphere. Balloons, blimps and dirigi-bles were the rage in Europe but their usewas quite limited and dangerous. Huge cashprizes were being offered for outstandingaeroplane performances. Government mili-taries began to take notice and some recog-nized that future developments in air flightcould be the key to the successful power of nations.In 1909 Louis Paulhan, a Frenchman, setrecords unheard of when he flew at a heightof 2,760 feet at a speed that covered 10miles in 19 minutes and carried a 160-poundpassenger in his plane. His fame becameworldwide. In 1909, American Glen Curtiss
