Everest Maxed Out An hour above high camp on the Southeast Ridge of Everest, Panuru Sherpa and I passed the first body. The dead climber was on his side, as if napping in the snow, his head half covered by the hood of his parka, goose down blowing from holes torn in his insulated pants. Ten minutes later we stepped around another body, her torso shrouded in a Canadian flag, an abandoned oxygen bottle holding down the flapping fabric. Trudging nose to butt up the ropes that had been fixed to the steep slope, Panuru and I were wedged between strangers above us and below us. The day before, at Camp III, our team had been part of a small group. But when we woke up this morning, we were stunned to see an endless line of climbers passing near our tents.

2012: a bloody good year for extreme sports – Whitelines Snowboarding 2012 has been a pretty remarkable year for extreme sports and on top of the ‘lympics, a damn good one for sport in general at that. This ‘People are Awesome‘ style compilation picks out some of the key extreme sports achievements and events of the past year and we think it does a pretty stellar job of summing everything up. On the snowboarding front they’ve included 16 year old Yuki Kadono’s backside triple cork 1440 at the Beijing Air and Style and Travis Rice winning the Red Bull Supernatural. Good to see that they haven’t overlooked Tom Schaar’s first ever 1080 on a skateboard or Trevor Jacob’s first ever double cork/backflip either.

Joseph Kittinger Joseph Kittinger The U.S. military has often been involved in setting aviation records. In the 1920s and 1930s, the Golden Age of Air Racing, members of the military competed in the National Air Races and set several records, helping to improve aviation technology in the process. Jimmy Doolittle set several records in the 1920s and 1930s, both as a member of the military and as a civilian. In the late 1950s and into the 1960s, another person who set records as a member of the military and in the mid-1980s as a civilian was Joseph Kittinger, Jr. While a member of the U.S. Dark matter is the thread connecting galaxy clusters Simulations of the Universe on the largest scales show an unexpected resemblance to nerve cells in the human brain, with galaxy clusters playing the role of the cell body and thinner filaments of matter linking them like axons. Galaxy surveys (such as the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, or SDSS) show that galaxies do cluster like our simulations predict. But the filaments that should connect them have been harder to find.

Daredevil dies in rope swing stunt popularized by YouTube SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A 22-year-old Utah man was killed trying to swing through the opening of a 110-foot-tall sandstone arch in a stunt made so popular on YouTube that state authorities recently banned the daredevil activity by commercial outfitters. Kyle Lee Stocking, of West Jordan, left too much slack in the rope he was using, and it sent him crashing into the sandstone base of Corona Arch near Moab, Grand County sheriff's officials said. He died Sunday afternoon. Viral videos have bolstered the activity, which involves swinging wildly from ropes through arch and canyon openings. One video titled "World's Largest Rope Swing" has racked up more than 17 million views on YouTube since it was posted in February.

Barefoot running injury concern 16 May 2013Last updated at 02:20 ET By Helen Briggs BBC News Bare foot running - good or bad? The trend for barefoot running could lead to injuries in some runners, a small study suggests. The way you run is more important than whether you wear running shoes or not, say scientists in Taiwan. The rationale behind barefoot running is to move in a more natural way, with the front of the foot hitting the ground first. But not all runners manage to adopt this style, putting added strain on muscles, scientific data suggests.

Understanding the Fibonacci Sequence and Golden Ratio The Fibonacci Sequence The Fibonacci sequence is possibly the most simple recurrence relation occurring in nature. It is 0,1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89, 144… each number equals the sum of the two numbers before it, and the difference of the two numbers succeeding it. Let's Get Physical: The Psychology of Effective Workout Music “I dare them to find the iPod on me,” Richie Sais told the New York Times in 2007, when he was preparing to run the Marine Corps Marathon. USA Track & Field, the national governing body for distance racing, had just decided to ban athletes from using portable music players in order "to ensure safety and to prevent runners from having a competitive edge." Rais resolved to hide his iPod shuffle under his shirt. Many fellow runners protested the new rule, which remains in effect today in an amended form: It now applies only to people vying for awards and money. For some athletes and for many people who run, jog, cycle, lift weights and otherwise exercise, music is not superfluous—it is essential to peak performance and a satisfying workout. Although some people prefer audio books, podcasts or ambient sounds, many others depend on bumpin' beats and stirring lyrics to keep themselves motivated when exercising.
