US Open Heat Break Rule

By Score More The US Open heat break rule was introduced in 2018 in response to the increasing number of players who were suffering from heat exhaustion and other heat-related illnesses. The rule allows players to take a 10-minute break between the second and third sets of a match if the Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (WBGT) exceeds 95 degrees Fahrenheit (35 degrees Celsius). The WBGT is a measure of the heat stress on the body and takes into account the temperature, humidity, and wind speed. It is a more accurate measure of heat stress than the air temperature alone. To take a heat break, a player must indicate to the umpire before the start of the second set that they wish to take the break. The player may use the time to rest, hydrate, and cool down. The umpire may also allow the playe...

Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (WBGT)

By Score More The Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (WBGT) is a measure of the heat stress on the human body. It is calculated using a combination of the temperature, humidity, wind speed, and solar radiation. The WBGT is a more accurate measure of heat stress than the air temperature alone, as it takes into account the effects of humidity and wind speed on the body's ability to cool itself. The WBGT is calculated using the following formula: WBGT = 0.7 * Tw + 0.2 * Tg + 0.1 * Td where: Tw is the wet bulb temperature Tg is the globe temperature Td is the dry bulb temperature The wet bulb temperature is measured using a thermometer wrapped in a wet cloth. The globe temperature is measured using a black globe thermometer. The dry bulb temperature is measured using a re...

The impact of climate change on sports

By José Carlos Palma* Climate change is already having a significant impact on sports around the world, and this impact is only expected to grow in the coming years. Rising temperatures, more extreme weather events, and changes in precipitation patterns are all affecting how athletes train and compete, and how sporting events are organized and conducted. One of the most obvious impacts of climate change on sports is the increasing frequency and intensity of extreme weather events. This includes heat waves, droughts, floods, and wildfires. These events can force the cancellation or postponement of sporting events, and they can also create dangerous conditions for athletes and spectators. For example, the 2020 Tokyo Olympics were postponed for a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the...

Bayern Munich and the swastika: A dark chapter in the club’s history

By Score More Bayern Munich was forced to use the swastika on its crest from 1938 to 1945, during the Second World War. The decision was made by the Nazi government, which was trying to control all aspects of German life, including sport.

The club's president at the time, Kurt Landauer, was Jewish and the club had a large Jewish following. The Nazi government, led by Adolf Hitler, was antisemitic and anti-democratic. In 1933, Hitler came to power in Germany and began to persecute Jews and other groups he considered undesirable. In 1938, the Nazi government ordered Bayern Munich to adopt the swastika on its crest. Landauer, a man of principle, refused to obey the order. In retaliation, ...
