  3. The Harlem Globetrotters, an exhibition basketball team, have recently implemented the first-ever 4-point shot as part of all of its games on the team’s 2011 “4 Times the Fun” North American tour. This game-changing innovation will be on display when the Globetrotters take on the Washington Generals at KeyArena.Throughout the 2011 North American tour, every Globetrotters game will now feature two designated 4-point shooting spots on each side of midcourt, each located 35 feet from the basket (the spots are 12 feet beyond the NBA’s official 3-point line). The 4-point option is expected to further open up the playing floor for the Globetrotters as well as their opponents, the Generals, and is expected to generate even more high-scoring action and competitive play.

  11. Join DR. Tami Meraglia and Dr. Scott Moser at Vitality Medical Clinic for:

    A Men’s Total Health Seminar
    We often hear “I don’t feel good . . . but my doctor says I’m fine.”
    Just because you bloodwork, cholesterol, heart rate and blood pressure are fine – doesn’t necessarily mean you feel your very best. These tests are designed to diagnose illnesses, diseases and conditions and do not address Total Health or Optimal Health. If you are a man over the age of 35 – your hormones are probably no longer functioning at optimal levels. If you’ve pushed yourself to the pint of exhaustion for a long time, adrenal fatigue can severely deplete your hormones. Low testosterone is a medical condition that frequently goes undiagnosed because its symptoms are so similar to other conditions. Learn the many ways that testosterone and other hormones affect your overall health, energy and Vitality how Testosterone Optimization can help you feel better and live a more vibrant, vitalized life.
