April Bockin is ‘witty,’ ‘sarcastic’ and Minnesota’s top passer

first_img“[The USWNT forwards] have always been the top players in the world,” Bockin said. “It’s fun to watch them play, move off the ball and score unreal goals.”Forward Julianna Gernes said Bockin can be sarcastic in a fun-loving way. She isn’t surprised when Bockin scores a big goal or makes a great pass.“I know she’s capable of [providing offense],” Gernes said. “We have so much fun celebrating [goals] together.”Similar to Gernes, the head coach said Bockin’s leadership role has grown since her freshman year. The coach said Bockin used to do her own thing her first year with Minnesota. Now, Golan thinks Bockin is unselfish and wants more responsibility as a leader for Minnesota.“She’s grown physically. She’s grown mentally stronger as well,” Golan said. “She’s one of the more durable players that we have at this point.”Gernes said Bockin can be quiet, but has developed into a leader since Bockin joined Minnesota’s roster in 2015. “She stands out at this level,” Gernes said. “She came out of her shell more.” April Bockin is ‘witty,’ ‘sarcastic’ and Minnesota’s top passerThe junior forward has nine assists this season, leading the team.Alex Tuthill-Preus, Daily File PhotoGophers forward April Bockin fights for the ball against Purdue at Elizabeth Lyle Robbie Stadium, Sept. 25, 2015.

But from a young age, ever since her older brother started playing, she has been around the game.“My parents put me [on a team] when I was four. I loved it, and I’ve played ever since,” Bockin said.Bockin has nine assists so far for Minnesota, the most on the team. She has scored in four consecutive games. On Sept. 24 against Michigan State, Bockin scored her first goal of the season and assisted on four of Minnesota’s seven goals.Besides being a key offensive player for the Gophers, head coach Stefanie Golan said Bockin does well academically and is a fun person to be around.“She’s super intelligent,” Golan said. “She’s a bright [person] who strives to excel at everything that she does. She’s soft-spoken, but extremely witty at the same time. She’s awkward in a great way. Everybody loves her.”When Bockin attended Eden Prairie High School, she was named an AP Scholar and graduated with honors. Bockin plans to major in kinesiology. She said she has always been interested in sports and the physical movements athletes perform to achieve their goals and how athletes can improve.“I was probably a sophomore in high school when I learned about kinesiology and the field,” she said. “I thought it was super interesting. I’ve stuck with it.”To study the game, Bockin’s soccer role models are the forwards of the U.S. Women’s National Team.last_img read more

The Saddest Movie in the World

first_imgSmithsonian.com:In 1979, director Franco Zeffirelli remade a 1931 Oscar-winning film called The Champ, about a washed-up boxer trying to mount a comeback in the ring. Zeffirelli’s version got tepid reviews. The Rotten Tomatoes website gives it only a 38 percent approval rating. But The Champ did succeed in launching the acting career of 9-year-old Ricky Schroder, who was cast as the son of the boxer. At the movie’s climax, the boxer, played by Jon Voight, dies in front of his young son. “Champ, wake up!” sobs an inconsolable T.J., played by Schroder. The performance would win him a Golden Globe Award.Read more: Smithsonian.com More of our Members in the Media >last_img read more

Sleep helps process traumatic experiences

first_imgEmail Pinterest Share on Facebook Study participants were randomly assigned to two groups. One slept in the lab for a night after the video while their sleep was recorded via an electroencephalograph (EEG); the other group remained awake. “Our results reveal that people who slept after the film had fewer and less distressing recurring emotional memories than those who were awake,” explains first author Birgit Kleim from the Department of Experimental Psychopathology and Psychotherapy at the University of Zurich. “This supports the assumption that sleep may have a protective effect in the aftermath of traumatic experiences.”On the one hand, sleep can help weaken emotions connected to an existing memory, such as fear caused by traumatic experiences, for instance. On the other hand, it also helps contextualize the recollections, process them informationally and store these memories. However, this process presumably takes several nights.According to the authors of the study, recommendations on early treatments and dealing with traumatized people in the early phase are few and far between. “Our approach offers an important non-invasive alternative to the current attempts to erase traumatic memories or treat them with medication,” says Birgit Kleim. “The use of sleep might prove to be a suitable and natural early prevention strategy.” Share on Twittercenter_img Share LinkedIn Does sleep help process stress and trauma? Or does it actually intensify emotional reactions and memories of the event? This previously unanswered question is highly relevant for the prevention of trauma-related disorders, such as posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). How extremely distressing experiences are processed right at the outset can influence the further course and development of posttraumatic stress disorders. PTSD patients experience highly emotional and distressing memories or even flashbacks where they feel as if they are experiencing their trauma all over again. Sleep could play a key role in processing what they have suffered.A study conducted by a team from the Department of Psychology at the University of Zurich and the Psychiatric University Hospital Zurich has now tackled the question as to whether sleep during the first 24 hours after a trauma has a positive impact on highly emotional distress and memories related to traumatic events. In the lab, the researchers showed test subjects a traumatic video. The recurring memories of the images in the film that haunted the test subjects for a few days were recorded in detail in a diary. Virtually out of the blue, the test subjects would see a snapshot of what they had seen in their mind’s eye, reawakening the unpleasant feelings and thoughts they had experienced during the film. The quality of these memories resembles those of patients suffering from posttraumatic stress disorders. Other than after a traumatic event, however, they reliably disappear after a few days.Fewer Distressing Emotional Memorieslast_img read more
