Public health historian Gerald Markowitz reminds us that the problem of lead poisoning is anything but new.
At its recent convention in Texas, the organization that governs college sports adopted a number of rule changes designed to streamline its huge rule manual.
The changes limit regulation of personnel, recruiting, eligibility and benefits.
Some critics say the changes will only help the big-time college sports programs increase their advantage over the smaller schools, widening the gap that exists between the “haves” and “have-nots” when it comes to college sports.
The changes would go into effect in August, if adopted by the NCAA’s Division I Board of Directors.
Among the more obscure impacts of the changes would be an end to the so-called bagel rule, which allowed schools to provide bagels to players – as long as they did not provide cream cheese or any other spread.
