Black Knights edge Panthers, 7-6
The North Penn-Mansfield Panthers suffered a 7-6 home loss to the Towanda Black Knights on Friday, October 6.
“It was a battle of two teams. A battle until the end,” said Panther head coach Tom Dickinson. “We didn’t make the plays when we needed to. I told the guys to keep their heads up. The defense played their buts off but offensively we need to find a way to score more than six points. We have nothing to be ashamed of, it was a heck of a battle and we have to learn from it and get better.”
Dr. Mayo – The Hippo Trick
Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive brain disorder that affects the brain in a variety of ways. First plaques and tangles, cells that destroy and kill our own brain cells, attack our hippocampus. This is where we hold a lot of memories, specifically tied to emotions. When this area is attacked, we typically forget short-term information, like where we put our keys, what we just read, appointments we made. As the plaques and tangles continue their tour, they move towards the front of our brain, the frontal cortex, where language develops, planning, logic, and decision-making happens. As a result, people lose their sense of decisiveness, organizational skills, ability to reason or think through the pros and cons of choices they make. These two areas, the hippocampus and frontal cortex, lose functioning and are considered to cause mild Alzheimer’s disease.
