Associate Director, Campus Recreation and Wellness
University of Nevada, Reno

Over the past two years I have been approached by many professionals in the recreation industry with questions about why CPR changed, who made the decision to change it and what we can expect in the future?
The American Heart Association (AHA) holds the Resuscitation Science Symposium and Emergency Cardiovascular Care Update (ECCU) every year. It is here that the epidemiology and current research is reviewed and recommendations for changes made.

If you watch the Bravo television series “Workout,” you’ve seen the entertaining and sensationalized side of gym-culture, spliced in with some of the realities of personal training. Recently the series called into question the ramifications of intimate relationships in the workplace. Jackie Warner — the owner and managing director of Sky Sport and Spa, the Beverly Hills gym featured in the show — began dating one of her employees, a personal trainer. When questioned on the affair, she stated, “A gym is a very different environment than say a bank or corporate structured environment. I’ve dated other trainers that have worked for me. Trainers date clients. Clients date clients. I mean, there’s flexibility in our environment… It’s just an easy environment to date in.”

A Resource Guide for Colleges and Universities

Campus Recreation departments routinely have to make travel decisions weighing factors such as risk, convenience, and cost. While the lowest risk option (and best case scenario) involves the use of buses, trains and planes, this is clearly the costliest option, and few Sport Clubs can afford these modes of transport. Hence the use of vans and private vehicles becomes the only real alternative.

Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus — remember it, recognize it, respect it. MRSA (“mersa”), as it is commonly known, might be recognizable to the reader as the nasty bug that has been the serious concern of hospital patients and administrators for the past couple of years. It is a particular staph infection that is resistant to typical antibiotics. To those who are already ill and hospitalized, it can even become deadly. So what does this infectious disease have to do with the recreational sports field?

Lightning Detection or Prediction Systems

Tim Stoecklein, Assistant Director
Recreational Services
Kansas State University

It has been said that the weather is the most popular topic of conversations across the world, and if you think about it, that is probably a fairly accurate statement. To play or not to play is often the question we face when it comes to our recreational programs. Typically the decisions focus on the rain, the snow, the wind, or the lightning. Sometimes it can be a combination of several as once I had to cancel a softball game due to snow AND lightning! Of all the elements served up by the environment, lightning is the second most deadly, behind floods.

The Ball Is In Your Court: Depositions 101

Depositions 101:
What to do if your Deposition is Taken

Katharine M. Nohr, Esq.
Miyagi Nohr & Myhre, Honolulu

Do you sometimes wonder why you are documenting your facility inspections and creating all of those incident reports? Someday, when your organization is embroiled in litigation and you are faced with having your deposition taken, you may appreciate the written record that you so carefully made. When your deposition is taken, you may have the benefit of having an attorney that represents your organization meet with you in advance and possibly represent you during your deposition. However, that might not be the case. Witnesses to incidences do not necessarily have counsel and oftentimes have their depositions taken with barely an understanding of what it is all about. The following information will hopefully orient you to the deposition process so that if you find yourself experiencing the pleasure of being grilled by a shark wearing a lawyer’s suit, you will know what to expect.
