The New York Times’ Thames and Abrams talk with 20 current and former Power 5 female student-athletes about the pressure of maintaining a certain physique. Former Penn State (DI) track & field student-athlete Koopman says while she was never told to achieve a certain body fat percentage, she was told by upperclassmen to stay away from the dessert table at banquets because the coaches might be watching. “It’s interesting how a lot of us have kind of been brainwashed into thinking that that is something that’s good for you and it is good for you to lose your period and it is good for you to have that feeling of hunger in your stomach.” Across the country, Thames and Abrams report programs are "asking or requiring student-athletes to measure their body composition, producing data that can help schools gauge whether the athletes are optimally training, resting and eating"; however, Boston University (DI) Associate Professor of Nutrition and Epidemiology Quatromoni says body composition data often overemphasizes the correlation between body fat percentage and athletic performance. As such, Quatromoni believes the tests should not be used to calculate body fat. More. (link)

Take your meetings on the move. Stanford (DI) staffers Oppezzo and Schwartz release their research report on the "Positive Effect of Walking on Creative Thinking." Lots here, but key findings from a series of four experiments: 1) While seated and then when walking on a treadmill, adults completed Guilford’s alternate uses (GAU) test of creative divergent thinking and the compound remote associates (CRA) test of convergent thinking. Walking increased 81% of participants’ creativity on the GAU, but only increased 23% of participants’ scores for the CRA. 2) Participants completed the GAU when seated and then walking, when walking and then seated, or when seated twice. Again, walking led to higher GAU scores. Moreover, when seated after walking, participants exhibited a residual creative boost. 3) Participants sat inside, walked on a treadmill inside, walked outside, or were rolled outside in a wheelchair. Walking outside produced the most novel and highest quality analogies. The effects of outdoor stimulation and walking were separable. Walking opens up the free flow of ideas, and it is a simple and robust solution to the goals of increasing creativity and increasing physical activity. Conclusion: "Walking substantially enhanced creativity by two different measures. For the three alternate uses studies, 81%, 88%, and 100% of participants were more creative walking than sitting. For the BSE, 100% of those who walked outside generated at least one novel high-quality analogy compared with 50% of those seated inside." (link)
Skift’s Huddleston and Doyle observe that “sneakers, and an overall more casual dress style, replaced traditional business attire in many instances” at this year’s IMEX America 2022 conference. They add: “This massive shift is happening across multiple industries that traditionally relied on stilettos and suits to make a powerful impression. Many attribute this transition to the two years of working in yoga pants and sweats that have nurtured an appetite for comfort and authenticity in self-expression. This prompted an evolution of the business dress code, and the meetings industry is no exception.” Visit Milwaukee VP of Marketing and Communications Albrecht on the custom sneakers worn by his team: “We were looking for a unique, fun way to speak to who we are and tell a story of a maker within our community. If our team is comfortable in their shoes, they will be comfortable talking to our clients and customers and representing our city the best way we can.” (link)
