of construction, the metallic puck experienced ∼40% less friction on the ice compared to the regulation vulcanized rubber pucks and therefore did not represent the puck specific affordances present in a game situation (e.g., friction between the puck and ice) ( Pinder, Davids, Renshaw, & Araújo, 2011

This research explored maladaptive parasocial interaction (PSI) expressed toward Chicago Bears kicker Cody Parkey after he missed a potential game-winning field goal in the 2019 NFL (National Football League) playoffs. Using a sample of 512 tweets posted during the week after the game, qualitative analysis revealed that maladaptive PSI manifested in the following ways: criticism, threats, anger, and support. The results help better illuminate the nature of virtual abuse and maltreatment of athletes that is increasing in online spaces. Results also suggest that maladaptive PSI expressed online creates friction among fans who have to reconcile defeat with problematic behavior from other group members. Implications for sport organizations are discussed, including the need to support and protect athletes against virtual abuse and maltreatment.

only examined AP sway, the predicted CoP errors apply to ML sway as well. This is because the CoP (and CoB) calculated in the AP direction are only a result of vertical force, the torque applied at the foot, and horizontal frictional forces; thus, no amount of ML motion can change the CoP (or CoB

’s jersey or your next favorite pair of boots. We do not want to hide that. In fact, we want to make that process as friction free as possible with swipe-ups and shoppable content. That always needs to be balanced with noncommercial, more editorially focused content, but if people follow Adidas, there is an

team that can provide the best chance to win a championship. LeBron James’s decision in 2010 and Kevin Durant’s in 2016 are two famous examples. This often causes friction with fans who still desire players to show loyalty to their original team. The unique relationship between LeBron James and

The speed of the turn, which depends on the amount of friction with the ground, is also an important characteristic of the constraints on the movement and is controlled through the vertical impulse

A positive student-teaching experience ( Graber, 1998 ) and induction-assistance initiatives eased the transition for beginning teachers by connecting them with school leaders and creating a supportive environment, but these initiatives must
