Friend of the site, Tony Palmer of Undercurrents in Calgary sent me a really cool video from a piece on science show, Daily Planet.

It shows the process of making artificial rivers out of natural rivers and highlights the river course on the Kananaskis River in Alberta.

Ocean Swells: The Storm Season is Upon Us!

Rough Seas. Photo Credit: karenwithak

Here in Ontario (as well as many other parts of the world), it is the beginning of the storm season. It's the time of the year that storms are magnified due to the cooler air and the warmer water below it. That differential in temperatures allows a lot more moisture and energy to be absorbed into the low pressure systems passing over head.

For paddlers who are looking for bumpy conditions, it's the time to get out paddling.

Everybody does it but ask anybody who has gone camping in a Provincial or State Park and they will tell you that nobody knows how to do it right. It's always a mess and if you haven't had the "pleasure" of stumbling upon the toilet paper surprise, then you haven't lived!

If your life goal is to start to poo like a pro, now is your chance.

Spoiler Alert! For those who watch the entire video, you are rewarded with a visual treat that will stay with you for the rest of your life.

Using video in your Coaching

Preparing to use video in coaching.
Preparing to use video in coaching.

Introduction:
Video is a flexible and powerful tool for the coach, its level of use is dictated by the coaches ability with the camera and confidence in it's application as part of the normal coaching process. The strength of video lies in it's ability to capture movement and speed rather than fixed shots. Many coaches are, needlessly, nervous because of the technology involved and it's application. The video should be built into normal coaching activity and viewed as additional to coaching activity.
