    AUTOR: Nick Winkelman
    EDICIÓN: 2020
    ISBN: 9781492567363
    EDITORIAL: Human Kinetics

    Try to recall the best coach you’ve ever had. Consider what differentiated them from other coaches; what made them so effective? Was it their knowledge and programming, or did it come down to the way they communicated with you and the way they made you feel? While the former are critical, it is a coach’s words that set them apart from the rest.

    The Language of Coaching focuses on the impact that communication has on an individual’s ability to learn and  perform a movement. Written by performance coach Nick Winkelman, the book examines how instruction, feedback, and cueing can significantly affect training outcomes. Grounded in motor learning and the science of attentional focus, Winkelman takes you on a journey, guiding you through practical coaching frameworks that will help you adapt your language to the learning needs of those you support.

    Packed with stunning visuals, the book provides over 25 movement sequences that outline different types of coaching cues, including a visual depiction of unique analogies, such as a sprinter taking off like a jet or an athlete loading into a jump like a spring. The book is filled with a comprehensive collection of cueing frameworks that guide you through the process of creating your own cues for any movement you want to teach. You will also learn how to engage in more productive conversation with your athletes through sample dialogue that uses the book’s cueing philosophy.

    Whether you are new to coaching or a seasoned veteran, The Language of Coaching will help you grow as a communicator and learn how to coach the person with the same precision as you do the program.

    CE exam available! For certified professionals, a companion continuing education exam can be completed after reading this book. The Language of Coaching Online CE Exam may be purchased separately or as part of The Language of Coaching With CE Exam package, which includes both the book and the exam.

    AUTOR:  Harold W. Kohl
    EDICIÓN: 2019
    ISBN: 9781492589976
    EDITORIAL: Human Kinetics

    The first textbook to clearly define the intersection of kinesiology and public health, Foundations of Physical Activity and Public Health, Second Edition With Web Resource, has been newly updated to reflect the 2018 Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans issued by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The new edition has been updated with additional contemporary research findings and international examples. With a solid introduction to the concepts of public health and kinesiology, techniques used to measure physical activity, and health effects of exercise and physical activity, the text will show readers how to advance the use of physical activity as a significant component in public health initiatives.

    Joining field leaders Harold (Bill) Kohl and Tinker Murray on this second edition is Deborah Salvo, an international expert with a special interest in the relationship between the built environment and health. Other updates to this edition include the following:

    • New content on the use of electronic devices—such as pedometers and consumer-based wearable technology and apps—for measuring physical activity
    • Urban design strategies for promoting physical activity at the community level
    • An engaging, full-color visual presentation
    • A new web resource that includes key term learning activities and links to the National Physical Activity Society (NPAS) core competencies for public health physical activity practitioners that relate to each chapter

    Foundations of Physical Activity and Public Health, Second Edition, describes the impact of sedentary behavior and physical activity on health, including cardiorespiratory and metabolic diseases, weight status, musculoskeletal disorders, cancers, and brain health. Evidence-based strategies are examined using three general approaches—informational, behavioral and social, and environmental and policy—with examples of successful programs to help readers understand applications in public health. A chapter on data collection and analysis teaches how to measure and evaluate program and policy effectiveness, while discussion of real-world initiatives such as the U.S. National Physical Activity Plan and the Toronto Charter for Physical Activity illustrates developing effective partnerships and models for advocacy.

    To further tie theory to practice, case studies and callout boxes throughout the text provide practical examples, and each chapter ends with a review to solidify student understanding of the material. Leader Profile sidebars allow students to explore career options while learning more about individuals who have had a major impact on this growing field.

    As the emphasis on physical activity as a tool for improving public health grows, professionals with combined knowledge and skills from both public health and exercise science fields will be highly sought. Foundations of Physical Activity and Public Health, Second Edition, will help students obtain an overview of kinesiology and public health areas, understand physical activity applications for public health, and learn about career options, and it will inspire them to choose a career and make a difference in the emerging field of physical activity and public health.

    Evgeni Vodolazkin es el ganador de los premios Big Book y Yasnaya Polyana. La novela Brisbane continúa con las historias de héroes, que este autor ha escrito anteriormente como Lavr y El Aviador (publicado por esta misma editorial), cuyo destino, como en la antigua tragedia, cambia repentina e inmediatamente. Gleb Yanovsky es un músico virtuoso, en la cima del éxito, que pierde la capacidad de actuar debido a una enfermedad y está tratando de encontrar un significado diferente a su vida, un nuevo punto de apoyo. El recordar el pasado le ayuda en esta tarea. Él trata de reunir los recuerdos de su infancia en Kiev, en los años setenta; de su juventud en Leningrado; para volver de nuevo al presente en Alemania y nuevamente en Kiev. Solo Brisbane no se encuentra entre estos viajes de la vida. En sus entrevistas Gleb menciona, a menudo, la ciudad de Brisbane y, en general, Australia. En su familia Brisbane era considerado como un paraíso, con una población demasiado específica (descendiente de convictos). ¿Hay realmente una ciudad así? ¿O es solo un espejismo o un sueño?

    Amparado por la ciencia, el materialismo parece haberse instalado en la opinión pública como la única opción viable para cualquier tipo de visión racional del mundo. El joven filósofo neerlandés Bernardo Kastrup, haciendo gala de un franco escepticismo, disiente de esta manera de ver las cosas y, con la claridad lógica de las evidencias empíricas, nos descubre sus absurdas contradicciones epistemológicas. Dentro de un marco de referencia distinto y coherente, a partir del cual se puede interpretar cualquier ley física o fenómeno natural sin necesidad de caer en las usuales suposiciones materialistas, el cerebro es la imagen de un proceso autolocalizado en la mente, lo mismo que un remolino lo es de un proceso autolocalizado en el agua, pero así como el remolino no genera el agua, el cerebro tampoco genera la mente, ya que es el cerebro el que está en la mente, no la mente en el cerebro.

    Con audacia y brillantez inusitadas, Kastrup nos presenta una visión alternativa del mundo, poniendo énfasis en el papel dinámico que tiene la consciencia en la constitución de lo real.
