It’s the season for tamales, moles and turkey (or pernicious). At Thanksgiving, families across the states come together to celebrate with multiple food and conversation classes, with the option of cocktails or coquitos in between. Some people come prepared with a new outfit, even if they are going to celebrate in the room (living room), others prefer to keep it cozy in anticipation of all the foods they plan to eat.

For the singer, songwriter, professionally trained chef, farmer AND fellow Boricua, Kelis, Thanksgiving is another opportunity to develop her stellar cooking skills and create an unforgettable ambiance for her guests. LATINA caught up with Kelis to learn more about how she celebrates Thanksgiving at home, how her Puerto Rican roots show up in her recipes, and the dos and don’ts of Thanksgiving festivities.

LATIN: If we were invited to your home for Thanksgiving, what should we expect? What’s the vibe?

Good music, of course, probably something like Bill Withers, Ohio Players, or maybe Willie Colon, Hector Lavoe, etc… something old school that sets the tone. The setting is luxurious for sure. I like to receive and always pay attention to everything, from the plates, to the tablecloth, to the cutlery, to the plating of my dishes. I want it to be enjoyable and something that all the senses will appreciate.

My outfit will depend on my mood, but something festive. Good food will of course be on the menu. I’m known for my Ginger Cornbread, which I sell on my Bounty & Full site, it really is the best! I also make a mean sweet potato and carrot dish which is so good. Both can be found in my cookbook, “My Life On A Plate”, and on my website.

This year I also created a Thanksgiving Meal Kit for people to buy. This year’s kit included herb and citrus seasoning, cranberry and tangerine sauce, carrot and yam soufflé, and other ready-to-eat concoctions to complete your meal! It sold out, but will be back next year. It’s like having me in your kitchen!

Kelis Truffle Mac ‘n’ Cheese. (recipe below)

What’s your favorite Thanksgiving side dish?

Mac’n’cheese! And because of my Puerto Rican heritage, I will of course have some of my favorite sides that are really easy for everyone to make, like Arroz con Gandules which is also in my cookbook.

What to do for Thanksgiving and what not to do?

Grab a nice cocktail or drink for guests upon arrival. Don’t try anything new if you’ve never done it before!

Arroz con Gandules de Kelis. (recipe below)

How is your Latin heritage reflected in your Thanksgiving traditions?

It’s really evident in the way I prepare my turkey. I do it like you would pernicious (Puerto Rican Pork Shoulder). It guarantees that it is super flavorful and flavorful, never dry.

Why is it important to you to eat from the farm?

I moved to the farm because I really wanted to control what my family and I ate. After training as a chef, I wanted to have food that was as fresh, clean and organic as possible.

Luckily, after two years and lots of trial and error, my garden is thriving. I grow so much on the farm and also have cows, chickens and lambs so we really get the best food possible!

For Kelis’ Arroz Con Gandules and Mac n Cheese recipes, see below:

ARROZ CON GANDULES BY KELIS

For 8 people; Makes 8 cups
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup spicy sofrito
1/2 large yellow onion, minced
2 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, add more to taste
1/2 tsp black pepper, add more to taste
1 can (15 ounces) pigeon peas, drained and rinsed (frozen or dried substitute)
2 cups long grain white rice
3 tablespoons Sazón con Achiote or 1/4 teaspoon achiote paste (crumbled with your fingers)
3 cups low-sodium chicken broth (or reserved juices from roast pork)

  1. Heat oil in a large cast iron pot or 6-quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Add sofrito and onion, sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt and sauté, stirring often, until onion is soft and translucent, about 10 minutes.

  5. Uncover the pan, add more salt and pepper to taste and fluff the rice with a fork.

*Note on ingredients: Gandules, also known as pigeon peas, are a common legume in Caribbean cuisine. You can get fresh gandules at Latin American grocery stores, especially where there are large populations of Jamaicans, Puerto Ricans, and Dominicans. If you can’t find gandules, use frozen green peas or lima beans instead.

WHOLE WHEAT MAC & CHEESE WITH KELIS TRUFFLE

1/2 tbsp truffle salt (or a drizzle of truffle oil)
1 jalapeño pepper, stemmed, seeded and minced
1 pouch of Ritz crackers (about 32 ounces)
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Grease a 9 or 13 inch baking dish and set aside.
  2. Bring a pot of water to a boil and salt it well. Cook the pasta until al dente. Drain and reserve.
  3. In a medium saucepan, infuse the milk, cream and sour cream over medium-low heat until just starting to smoke, but don’t let them boil. Put aside.
  4. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over low heat. Stir in flour and cook, stirring constantly, for 2 to 3 minutes. Gradually pour in the milk mixture, whisking constantly, until no lumps remain. Reserve 1/4 cup of cheddar and mozzarella. Add all of the remaining cheeses to the milk mixture, along with the truffle salt and jalapeño, and stir until the cheeses have completely melted. Add cooked pasta and toss to combine. Transfer to the prepared baking dish and smooth the top to make it as flat as possible.
  5. Put the Ritz crackers in a bowl and crush them with your hands. Add melted butter and stir to combine. Sprinkle the cracker mixture over the casserole, followed by the reserved cheeses.
  6. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, until the top is golden brown.

*Note on ingredients: Truffle Salt is a luxurious yet convenient product made from sea salt mixed with black truffle shavings. You can find it in delicatessens and cheese shops. If you can’t find any, substitute it with a drizzle of truffle oil.

Can I still run after knee replacement surgery? – Triathlete https://facolombofilia.com/can-i-still-run-after-knee-replacement-surgery-triathlete/ Mon, 21 Nov 2022 13:40:48 +0000 https://facolombofilia.com/can-i-still-run-after-knee-replacement-surgery-triathlete/ “], “filter”: { “nextExceptions”: “img, blockquote, div”, “nextContainsExceptions”: “img, blockquote”} }”> To access all of our training, gear and race coverage, plus exclusive training plans, FinisherPix photos, event discounts and GPS apps, >”,”name”:” in-content-cta”,”type”:”link “}}”>subscribe to Outside+.

When ultramarathoner Richard Donovan came Kevin R. Stone, MDof The stone clinic in San Francisco, other doctors had already told him that he needed a total knee replacement — and that he would never run again.

Fortunately, Stone — a pioneer in advanced orthopedic surgery and rehabilitation techniques to repair, regenerate and replace damaged cartilage and ligaments — took a different approach, performing two partial knee replacements in 2019 and 2021. And Donovan, who is in his fifties, didn’t just keep running. In 2022, after running the Boston Marathon, he completed a three-month, 3,200-mile run across America, covering more than 40 miles a day.

Donovan’s initial experience of being told he needed to stop running is not uncommon, as many of us with knee issues can attest. And while Donovan’s status as an elite athlete certainly provided an added level of motivation to find a solution that got him running, there is a plot people who miss their sport unnecessarily.

RELATED: Does running destroy your knees?

Knee Replacement Surgery: Understanding Your Options

“Eighty percent of people who are told they need a total knee replacement don’t. [need one]said Stone — and that’s for several reasons.

For one thing, the knees don’t usually wear out everywhere; it’s usually one way or the other, he said. There are several stages of arthritis before the joint cartilage wears down completely, and if they are not yet at the bone-to-bone stage, there is the possibility of biological knee replacement, which means they can cause this articular cartilage to regrow. and replace their meniscus cartilage.

Even for people who have reached this bone-on-bone stage, they may be eligible for partial knee replacement surgery, where only the worn part of the knee is replaced, Stone said. “That was the case in Richard Donovan,” he explained.

Of course, some people actually have tricompartmental arthritis, which means all parts of the knee are arthritic. But even then, Stone has good news — and it involves robots.

“These people may have a new form of knee replacement surgery, which is actually knee resurfacing where we use a robot to precisely remove the arthritic part of the joint and cover it with a metal cap at the end. femur, and a metal and a plastic tray on the tibia,” he said. This robotic precision is so good that cement isn’t needed, Stone explained. They press the new component directly on the bone, and the body will grow into the porous surface of the component.

“What that means for all the runners in the world who have been told they can’t run anymore, they often can,” he explained, “if, one, they have a biological substitute; or number two, they have a partial replacement done with robotic precision; or number three, they have a total replacement done with robotic precision and without cement.

Stone’s commitment to finding ways to keep patients active comes as no surprise; the man wrote a book called play forever, and he takes this motto to heart. “Our goal is to help you drop dead at 100 playing the sport you love, so let’s pull out all the resources to help you do that,” he said.

After all, he says, if you tell an active person to stop running and exercising because of poor knee health or a joint replacement, chances are they’ll become depressed, lose muscle and lose bone mass. On the other hand, if you encourage a patient to exercise more, they build bone, build muscle, and stay happy. This change in attitude, along with changes with precision surgery and new biologic options, has created a whole new world for athletes with poor knees.

Talking to your doctor about knee replacement surgery

If you are experiencing knee pain, now is the time to act. “There is no reason to live in pain,” he said. “Life is short and your opportunities for pain-free exercise are precious. There is no reason to abandon them.

However, it is important to note that although the techniques mentioned by Stone are taught and used around the world, not all physicians take the same approach to getting patients back on track. Stone recommends asking about your doctor’s results and experience to make sure you’re on the same page. “If they’re just doing total knee replacements, they probably won’t tell a patient about the other options,” he said. If you find that you and your doctor don’t share the same goals, that’s a sign you might want to get a second (or third) opinion.

“The other thing a patient needs to know is that we’re in what I call the anabolic era of sports medicine,” Stone explained. “That means we can do injections and we have tissue regeneration techniques.” You may be familiar with some of these techniques, such as PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma – aka the patient’s own platelet growth factors) combined with Hyaluronic Acid (HA) or factors that recruit the body’s own stem cells and their offspring at the injury site, and Stone said that area is exploding — in a good way. “For many patients who have arthritic joints, this combination of PRP and HA is a great rehabilitation program,” he said. “They come in for their ‘lube job’ once or twice a year, as they call it, and it can ease their symptoms for quite a while.” It’s not a cure, to be clear, but it keeps them away from his operating room and their sport.

However, success is not only achieved through surgery or injection. The post-operative or post-treatment approach also plays a crucial role, and Stone aims for all of his patients to begin rehabilitation the very next day. “The most important aspect of this is that we try to help our patients see themselves as athletes in training, not patients in rehab,” he said. He encourages them to think they’re starting their training to get back to their event, starting on Day 1. “Asking when you can get back to training is the wrong approach, I would say,” he said.

In his clinic, patients take sports tests to help their surgeon, physical therapy team and rehabilitation team better coordinate their return to performance. If a patient’s goal is simply to walk without pain, they will establish a training program around balance and walking to help them achieve this. “And, if your goal is to return to an Ironman, then let’s make sure you can pass all of our fitness tests to return safely,” he said. “Let’s set the program up with the goal of helping you come back better than you were before.”

Falcon picks Ecuador as winner of World Cup opener in nod to falconry traditions https://facolombofilia.com/falcon-picks-ecuador-as-winner-of-world-cup-opener-in-nod-to-falconry-traditions/ Sat, 19 Nov 2022 07:11:00 +0000 https://facolombofilia.com/falcon-picks-ecuador-as-winner-of-world-cup-opener-in-nod-to-falconry-traditions/ Masnad Ali al-Mohannadi shares a passion with many Qataris and it’s not just the love of the national football team.

Masnad Ali al-Mohannadi shares a passion with many Qataris and it’s not just the love of the national football team.

It is the love of falcons, birds of prey that many Qataris use for hunting.

For the latest headlines, follow our Google News channel online or through the app.

As Qatar prepares for the start of the 2022 World Cup this Sunday, the first ever in an Arab country and the Middle East, it is opening itself up to a sea of ​​visitors accompanying the tournament.

One feature that stands out is the training of falcons for hunting.

“Go for Qatar, go for Qatar,” al-Mohannadi pleads with his favorite falcon, Neyar, as the hooded predator flaps its wings in an open area in al-Khor, some 50 kilometers (30 miles) north. north of the capital Doha.

Al-Mohannadi attached the flags of Qatar and Ecuador, the two teams that will kick off the tournament on Sunday, to two drones and flew the machines overhead.

A treat of pigeon meat was attached to both flags, Neyar would choose one and that would be the winner of the match.

Once unhooded, the bird headed straight for the flag of Qatar hanging from the hovering drone, only to turn around sharply and snatch a piece of meat from a string attached to that of Ecuador.

“He is a hawk. And he chose Ecuador. Inshallah (God willing), Qatar will win and we will support Ecuador as well,” al-Mohannadi said.

The 30-year-old breeds seven falcons and has won national competitions.

The price of a hawk ranges from several thousand dollars to tens of thousands of dollars, with rare specimens such as white-feathered hawks fetching even higher prices.

In tiny, wealthy Qatar, desert birds are among the country’s most treasured residents.

“Our ancestors hunted with falcons for food. And it has become a tradition for us,” al-Mohannadi said. “We treat them like a member of our own family.”

Long revered throughout the Arabian Peninsula for their ferocity and hunting prowess, falcons today serve as status symbols reminiscent of a Bedouin past.

The bond between falconers and their falcons has been an inspiration since the Paleolithic period, when drawings of the creatures first appeared on cave walls.

Al-Mohannadi likened their training to the task of a football coach overseeing the team’s progress.

“A falcon trainer, he is the manager of his team. We have six or seven falcons to train for competitions or for hunting,” al-Mohannadi said.

“So we train these falcons four hours a day; two o’clock in the morning, early in the morning and two o’clock early in the evening. So it’s the same thing from a manager’s point of view.

The art of falconry is still passed down from generation to generation in Qatar and other Persian Gulf countries.

Continuing the tradition, al-Mohannadi advised his cousin, Ibraheem al-Mohannadi, 14, how to spot the best falcon in a falcon shop in Souq Waqif, the historic center of Doha.

The teenager said he was looking to buy a bird for his younger brother so they could both share the passion.

And when it comes to football, he hoped Qatar would do well but said his favorite team was Argentina.

“I want my own country to win. And my hawk is (Qatar midfielder) Abdulaziz Hatem,” said Ibraheem al-Mohannadi.

“I don’t think they will win because they are such strong countries with us (in the squad). So inchallah, Argentina win, because I love Argentina.

Qatar face Ecuador on Sunday in the first match of the tournament which is due to start at 16:00 GMT and will be played at al-Bayt stadium in al-Khor, just a few kilometers from where the hooded Neyar will wait to see if his choice was the good one.

IAN LADYMAN: Now is the time for Todd Boehly to prove the era of ups and downs at Chelsea is over https://facolombofilia.com/ian-ladyman-now-is-the-time-for-todd-boehly-to-prove-the-era-of-ups-and-downs-at-chelsea-is-over/ Sun, 13 Nov 2022 22:31:11 +0000 https://facolombofilia.com/ian-ladyman-now-is-the-time-for-todd-boehly-to-prove-the-era-of-ups-and-downs-at-chelsea-is-over/ Graham Potter’s Chelsea have not won in the Premier League since mid-October and that takes their new manager into tedious territory.

Graham Potter’s Chelsea have not won in the Premier League since mid-October and that takes their new manager into tedious territory. Speculation about his future has already begun.

It’s ridiculous and boring and we can blame it on former Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich, who was happy to oversee a 20-year cycle of boom and bust by regularly changing managers and revamping the club team.

Abramovich is gone now, replaced by American businessman Todd Boehly, and things are supposed to be different. We’ll know soon enough if they really are.

I was surprised when Potter left Brighton for Chelsea in September. He had twice rejected advances from Tottenham because he was unsure of working for chairman Daniel Levy. I assumed he would see so many pitfalls at Chelsea.

Todd Boehly must change the culture that has produced such managerial turnover at Chelsea under Roman Abramovich

But Potter was presented with a new vision by Boehly. He was told that Chelsea were ready to build for the future, follow a long-term recruitment strategy and form a strong and functional link between their academy and their first team.

If I had been Potter, I might have looked at the nature of Chelsea’s summer recruiting and wondered how it fitted with the version of the club I was selling. But the 47-year-old took the job and now we wait.

It’s easy to look at the Chelsea team and recognize the talent. Players like Mason Mount and Reece James should serve the club well for years to come.

But it’s easy to see the problems too. The club’s squad lack balance and depth in the right areas and continue to carry too many players bought for big money under Abramovich only to deliver sporadically.

Graham Potter initially struggled at Stamford Bridge but can succeed if given time

Graham Potter initially struggled at Stamford Bridge but can succeed if given time

Potter’s predecessor Thomas Tuchel warned at the end of last season that there were problems ahead and he was right. He spent the summer worrying about not being able to close the gap to Manchester City and Liverpool and within a few difficult weeks at the start of the season he was gone.

Potter knows what Chelsea needs. He sat down at the club’s training ground ahead of a game against Arsenal which was due to be lost 1-0 eight days ago and explained it.

Chelsea and Boehly need to establish a clear vision of what they would like the club to look like in three or four years and stick to it.

That’s what City and Liverpool did. That’s what Arsenal did. This is what Chelsea have never done.

Potter’s team has been struggling lately. His meddling with staff and rosters indicates a man trying to find a way forward for a team that is often more like less than the sum of its parts.

Thomas Tuchel's comments before his sacking on the widening gap between Chelsea and the Premier League's top clubs now seem prophetic

Thomas Tuchel’s comments before his sacking on the widening gap between Chelsea and the Premier League’s top clubs now seem prophetic

He made a few mistakes. His approach to his return to Brighton last month was peculiar and his side lost 4-1.

But the fact remains that Chelsea have hired a clever tactical manager whose instinct is always to look to the future, beyond the next game or the next result.

Time will tell if Potter has the rhino skin to handle life at a really big club. There is no prep school for that.

But he has a vision of what he would like Chelsea to be and Boehly and the fans buy into it and accept that it may be a matter of stepping back to move forward, or resigning oneself to an even greater future. in expansion and in recession. , only without the safety net of Abramovich’s immense fortune.

AC Milan star Fikayo Tomori has missed inclusion in Gareth Southgate’s England squad

Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori both had an inclusion case in the England squad but were put at a disadvantage playing in Italy.

Olivier Giroud scores for AC Milan at the age of 36. Romelu Lukaku secured a big transfer to Chelsea on goals scored for Inter, only to fail once again in England.

The blunt fact is that Serie A is a second-rate environment these days. If Abraham and Tomori were good enough to play for England, they would still be at Stamford Bridge.

Sean Dyche has been pigeonholed for finding a way to make Burnley successful

Sean Dyche has been pigeonholed for finding a way to make Burnley successful

Sean Dyche was a compelling guest on talkSPORT last week and said he was ready to work after six months away.

Dyche is pigeonholed in this country as a long-ball coach and that is symptomatic of the narrow-minded attitudes that are prevalent in our game.

“If I had tried to play like Manchester City at Burnley, we would have been relegated in my first season,” he said.

City manager Pep Guardiola is a fan of Dyche’s work and a good judge. It says something worrying about English football that a smart manager remains out of work.

Wales manager Robert Page heads to Qatar knowing how much he owes the three former teammates who came before him, Ryan Giggs, Gary Speed ​​and Chris Coleman. There will also be a nod to John Toshack, as he was the one who gave so many of the current team their debuts.

But Page, 48, took her core values ​​from her parents Malcolm and June and people like her former PE teacher Warren Evans.

“They formed things in me that I never forgot,” Page told me earlier this year.

Wales boss Robert Page is as grounded and humble as any manager on the eve of the World Cup

Wales boss Robert Page is as grounded and humble as any manager on the eve of the World Cup

With that in mind, it seemed fitting that Page announced his team at Tylorstown’s Welfare Hall last week. Page is a Rhondda Valley product and this was one way to pay his dues.

Wales may not be the most gifted team at this World Cup, but they know exactly who they are.

In an age of social media cravings, internet footprints, and distorted values, there’s something to be said for this.

Veterans Day tells stories of bravery, determination, courage and heroism. But among the veterans we honor every November 11 are ordinary people, people who ended up in the armed forces because their numbers grew – and who took up the heavy slack that was handed to them and served their country.

Additionally, two Southwest Florida residents say they are better off going home.

Twice soldier, on a technical point

Mike Stanton, of Rockford, Illinois, actually enlisted twice.

“I was trying to stay ahead of the draft,” conceded the Vi resident at the Bentley Village in Naples. Knowing they were eligible for the draft and that World War II was over, he and five of his friends joined the U.S. Marines. There was only a two-year enlistment requirement. And his hook dangled GI Bill’s college opportunities at the end of term.

He attended St. John’s University in Collegeville, Minnesota, graduating in 1966 with a degree in sociology and an ROTC commission as a sub -Lieutenant in the U.S. Army Reserve. .

Jim returned to Tracy and worked until reporting for the Basic Medical Service Officers Course in January 1967.

“Went to Fort Sam Houston, Brooke Army Medical Center (San Antonio, TX). I spent about three months there. They lined me up for combat work. It was called an assistant battalion surgeon. It prepared you to be a medical platoon leader and treat and evacuate the wounded.

Jim described his field-based training at Fort Sam.

“We did field work: starting IVs; to kick. We did practical work. We even simulated Dust-Offs – charging helicopters and that sort of thing.

He smiles as he remembers living in the single officers’ quarters (BOQ) at Fort Sam with the other new lieutenants.

“A lot of my buddies had fast cars. It was like an office job. We finished at five o’clock. On weekends, we went to the Officers’ Club; jump in our cars; get off at Padre Island; camp on the island all weekend; and come back. (Jim laughs) It was great to live!

The Army assigned Jim to Fort Monmouth, New Jersey.

“I got a great job at Fort Monmouth. I was like a low-level hospital systems administrator in Monmouth. I had the Ambulance Section; I had the outpatient department; and I had rural dispensaries. I had maybe forty-five people. It was an eight to five job, although some nights you had to stay in the hospital all night.

He explained that his new assignment involved a lot of on-the-job training.

“Some of them I didn’t particularly like. I was locked in an office and had to write a lot. I came out, however, and thought I could help motivate people. I had some good sergeants. They educated me quickly, ‘Hey, Lieutenant, you don’t mess with us and we’ll cover your ass.’ I have never had a problem. So, I learned the enlisted ranks very early.

Jim’s responsibilities included the outpatient clinic at the Patterson Military Hospital in Fort Monmouth.

“The people I was very close to were at the outpatient clinic. We have taken care of many retired army or military personnel in this region. So a lot of the work was making sure they were comfortable and that we were taking good care of them.

Other responsibilities took Jim and his people to areas off Fort Monmouth.

“I would go out and check my two dispensaries. One was on a small island where there was an anti-aircraft missile site (to defend the New York metropolitan area). We also had to transport people for specialist outpatient care. We would drive a lot of people to Fort Dix. It was part of our ambulance section.

Jim loved his job, but enjoyed his free time even more.

“It was right on the shore of New Jersey. My best friend was a vet there, smart as a whip. Like me, he liked to have fun, (Jim laughs) so we got on well. We had a great little cabin on the shore. We couldn’t afford it, (Jim laughs) but we were great players.

Their apartment just by the shore has become party central.

“There were lots of places right next to our house along the beach. There were all kinds of activities. Asbury Park was just south of us. It was a hot spot.

Sometimes the party left the beach for the nearby big city.

“We went to New York for a bit. We would have free tickets; make an appointment; and go to a Broadway show. We were going to a horse trail and down to Atlantic City.

But all good things must end. Jim’s assignment at Fort Monmouth ended ahead of schedule. He arrived in March 1967 and received reassignment orders in November 1967.

“The colonel could say sometimes that I was having too much fun. When I received my orders from ‘Nam, he said, ‘You know, Keul, for every action there is an equal reaction. You go to ‘Nam.’ (Jim laughs)

Jim wasn’t scared off by orders in Vietnam because he was young and thought he was invincible. He described his trip abroad.

“I had a little home leave and then I took a commercial flight to San Francisco. That’s where I flew from. We were on a commercial flight with some lovely flight attendants. We refueled in Hawaii and then Tan Son Nhut, just outside Saigon.

He remembers landing at Tan Son Nhut Air Base in early January 1968.

“Oh, the heat and the smell. It was a revelation, let me tell you. They sent us to a replacement depot. We were just hanging out, waiting for orders. When I read mine, that little old lady, sweeping the floor, said, “A lot of VC.” (French for ‘Many Viet Cong’) Of course I didn’t know what”a lot” supposed.”

By the end of January 1968, Jim had learned what “Many VC” could do to his new unit.

The Departmental Museum of Lyon is organizing an exhibition on the impact of the Vietnam War on the department of Lyon. If you would like to share Vietnamese experiences or help with the exhibit, please contact me at prairieview pressllc@gmail.com or call the museum at 537-6580.

IOWA CITY — It turns out to be the real deal — and the feeling is mutual.

Adding two-time all-American Real Woods to Iowa’s wrestling schedule as a Stanford graduate transfer proved to be a mutually beneficial situation.

Woods is helping fill a need for the Hawkeyes at 141 pounds and training with the Hawkeyes offers him a chance to further develop his skills as his career progresses.

“He walks to the beat of a bit different drummer, which is great and suits us. We love it,” coach Tom Brands said Thursday at Iowa’s preseason media day. “He’s got great energy and the other thing is he’s a direct guy. That’s a great and refreshing thing.

A three-time Illinois State high school champion for Lombard Montini who earned his undergraduate degree in psychology at Stanford, Woods wanted to put himself in the right position as he considered graduate transfer opportunities.

People also read…

“It was largely a leap of faith. There were a few options,” Woods said. “I shopped around the college wrestling scene and decided there was solid evidence that Iowa would match my style, personality, etc., and luckily it does. . It exceeded my expectations.”

Woods wants to win, both individually and as part of a successful team.

He also wants to prepare for his future as a wrestler on the national and international scene.

Woods made it obvious when he spoke with coaches in Iowa about joining the Hawkeyes.

“He wants to grow and improve,” Brands said. “He’s got his eyes on the future and that’s what he’s talking about. He talks about the same things we do.”

To achieve this goal, Woods found himself training regularly with a different level sparring partner.

His teammate Max Murin and former Hawkeyes Austin DeSanto and Pat Lugo trained with Woods during the preseason.

“It’s been a great experience for me to be around high caliber guys like that,” Woods said. “The work I’ve done with them has been really good.”

Woods is one of six wrestlers on the Iowa roster who have earned all-American recognition in the past, joining three-time 125-pound NCAA champion Spencer Lee, Murin at 149, Abe Assad at 184, Jacob Warner at 197 and Tony Cassioppi at 285.

He said being part of a room full of wrestlers of this caliber and the expectations that come with competing at this level has had a good influence on him.

“There’s an amazing culture in the room and I’m thrilled to be a part of it,” Woods said. “I’m here to win, both individually and as a team. These are just as important to me.”

Brands said Woods brings comprehensive skills to the Iowa program.

He saw him struggle well from the top, bottom and neutral positions.

“He’s the whole package,” Brands said. “He’s probably an athletic, explosive guy, you could classify him as that, but I wouldn’t make the mistake of classifying him as a fast-twitch explosive athlete because he can wrestle in a lot of different positions.” ‘

Brands understood this a long time ago.

He saw Woods attend development camp when he was a high school athlete.

“We tried to recruit him, but he was going to Stanford,” Brands said. “A brilliant kid is about all the good things. The family sacrificed themselves and sent him to Montini Catholic in Chicago.”

And when Stanford announced plans to drop the program a year ago, a decision that was later reversed, Woods became interested in the Hawkeyes.

But with Jaydin Eierman returning for his senior season at 141, the timing was not right.

“They are reinstating the program, it remains at Stanford. Then a year later, he decided to transfer. Third time is a charm,” Brands said.

He called adding Woods to the Iowa roster “no brainer” and became more convinced of it than ever after flying out with assistant coach Ryan Morningstar to visit Woods.

“It was time to be a Hawkeye, if I can speak for him,” Brands said.

Woods left little doubt about it.

“The wrestling culture in Iowa, it’s the biggest I can think of in the country and being a part of it is perfect for me.”

Woods is among a large group of newcomers to the Iowa wrestling room this season.

There are 14 wrestlers in the Hawkeyes freshman class and Woods is among three transfers joining the program.

Lee, back from surgery to repair two torn anterior cruciate ligaments and working to become Iowa’s first-ever four-time national champion, said the large number of newcomers brought energy to the room.

“I’ve been used to pretty much the same group of guys since I’ve been here,” Lee said. “Seniors, we are doing what we can to help them adapt while continuing to prepare for the season.

In Michael Anthony Montoya’s informative and remarkably sober hour-long documentary off the wings (★★★★☆, CRITIC’S PICK), a dance instructor/transgender activist expresses outrage at a few ballet companies’ recent ploy of featuring real, live dogs as stage-stealing extras in their professional productions.

All the while, real, trans, and non-binary human dancers and characters remain invisible, if not effectively excluded, from traditional dance — which the dance teacher calls “traditionally sexist, it’s traditionally misogynistic, and it’s traditionally discriminatory.” “.

Montoya’s documentary introduces us to a handful of queer, transgender, and non-binary dance artists/activists who give personal voice to the many and varied ways in which this whole tradition – specifically, “traditional gender role expectations” of the field, rooted in gender binaries. and – segregated training, as well as general, implicit cisgender, and heteronormative biases – has hampered them and their work and contributions to the field as a whole, from the classical realm of ballet to contemporary or modern styles.

Leading this queer cohort is the filmmaker himself, who began in the field decades ago as a lesbian-identifying dancer before becoming a trans-male dance educator and researcher.

Developed with the help of several artistic and educational associations in New York, out of the wings is filmed in a largely naturalistic and unassuming educational style that may make you think of the kind of PBS specials elementary school teachers may have once assigned you to watch.

But the film has been developed primarily to serve as a call to action and an educational tool for those who are already on the ground advocating for greater inclusion and diversity in terms of gender expression and representation and of sexuality – or, in short, #queertheballet. It gets a little didactic at times, but not so much that the average viewer might lose interest.



Montoya’s approach to interviewing is particularly remarkable, engaging his subjects in a conversational style that encourages them to elaborate by sharing their personal stories and experiences in dance, with a focus on how they managed to overcome the many obstacles encountered.

Their perseverance off the wings goes on to suggest, in stark contrast to the countless number of their would-be queer peers, those who gave up dancing long ago, seeing no place for them. As one interviewee put it, she hears all the time from those who were also aspiring dancers like her: “I loved dancing until I came out”.
