Foot Injuries Common In Motorcycle Accidents

The large emphasis on helmet safety in the U.S. might lead some to believe head trauma is the number one crash-related injury suffered by motorcyclists. However, the answer lies on the opposite end of the human body.

The majority of traumatic crash injuries suffered by motorcyclists occur in the lower extremity region, an area that includes the legs, feet and thighs. Upper extremities, which include the arms and hands, are the second most injured area for motorcyclists involved in crashes, followed by the head according to a 2008 study from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Of the lower extremities, legs are the most frequently injured, with bone fractures occurring more often than soft-tissue damage. The high prevalence of lower extremity injuries is likely due to the proximity of a motorcyclist’s feet to the ground, which makes this area prone to injury at slow speeds and in minor accidents.
Ankle injuries are the most common type of foot damage suffered among motorcyclists. Depending on the severity of the ankle injury, several surgeries and months of rehabilitation might be needed before walking is possible.

 
 

How To Use A Headset On A Halo 3 Game

When the sales figures for Halo 3 were released, the gaming and entertainment community was stunned. In fact, so surprising were the sales figures that it became top story news on several of the major search engine homepages. While the sales figures were surprising, they really were only surprising to people that were not avid gamers and those who do not follow the industry closely. Halo 3 was guaranteed to be a success because it is an exciting and innovative game. And, also contributing to its success has been the advent of accessories that add to the fun of play such as integrating the use of a headset. Of course, this means the player needs to understand how to use a headset with Halo 3. This really should not be considered problematic as the process is not as tough as some assume.

The purpose of the headset is to add voice chat capabilities to the online version of the game. For those that are huge aficionados of Xbox Live, this addition of the headset not only makes the game more fun, it also makes it a lot more realistic. And, of course, it allows the player to get into his character. But, there is a little more to using the headset than merely plugging it in.

In terms of actually using the headset to talk to players, how you use the headset will be dependent upon the matches that you are engaged in. Certain matches will involve a number of different opponents in a mass attack scenario. Other smaller bouts will involve fewer players in doubles or small team competitive action. In real life, it would be much easier to communicate in a small group of 5 people as opposed to communicating among a chaotic situation with two dozen people. In order to maintain the realism of game play, the Halo 3 headset will have different operational functions when dealing with large numbers of people.

Why Is German Lighting So Popular In The Uk

In recent years German lighting has become more and more popular in the UK but how and why has it achieved such success?

The lighting industry is very much guided by the fashions of the time. As the high street follows the catwalk, the lighting industry follows the housing market. The number of modern houses and apartments has increased dramatically over the past ten years in Britain and with these new builds come simple layouts and smaller room sizes with lower ceilings. This has meant that lighting designs have had to change. The designs are smaller and less fussy. This sums up most German lighting designs very well. Straight, clean lines and simple shapes are what German designers do best and it is this style that suits a lot of modern houses in the UK. Companies like Grossmann lighting in particular have been consistently coming up with modern simple designs for years. Designs like the Grossmann lighting Magic range for instance, has been one of the most popular.

Another reason for the success of German lighting is the quality of the goods produced. Thanks mainly to the automotive industry, the tag line -Made in Germany’ has come to represent the highest levels of build quality and intelligent engineering. This is very much true of German lighting. Grossmann lighting for instance, manufacture every component themselves. Not outsourcing to save money like many companies. Grossmann also employ their own team of designers to make sure that they always have the most cutting edge designs and to ensure that Grossmann lighting products are always built with the end user in mind.
