When Bob Marley died in 1981 at the age of 36, the world shed a tear. Marley's legacy as an international messenger for peace lives on, though, as his backing band The Wailers continues to tour and play Marley classics like "No Woman, No Cry," "Stir It Up" and "Redemption Song."

Thank you for registering for our Free FSU Heart Screening! Although we will be accepting walk-in appointments, it really helps us that you're picking a time slot to come get your heart screened. Mention at the event sign-in table that you registered online, and we will make you a priority! http://doodle.com/wf3ut6t9b7k6bmxs Sudden Cardiac Arrest is the number one cause of death for student athletes - more than any form of cancer or illness combined. A simple yet effective electrocardiogram can detect up to 89% of heart issues and takes just 5 minutes to perform. This spring on Wednesday, April 8th from 9am-3pm we will be hosting the first free on-campus heart screening organized by college students. Our event will offer the Florida State Universitys student body an opportunity to receive an ECG, which detects conditions leading to SCA and other forms of heart disease. More than 60 student lives across the country have been saved due to an issue that was found from an ECG screening that we performed. With your support, we hope to screen as many students in our community as possible. A standard ECG costs between $150-$200. Unfortunately, many families cannot afford to provide their children with this critical health service. Any contribution helps bring us one step closer to saving the life of a son, daughter, brother, sister, or friend. * For more info on Who We Play For, check out our interview on The Matt Reed Show! http://buff.ly/1I6e7c7 Heart Screening FAQ Why should I get a cardiac screening? The human body changes during puberty both externally and internally in a variety of ways. One of these internal changes is the structure of the heart. In middle school, student athletes learn how to push their bodies to new levels as they mature and get bigger and stronger. Because of these physical changes and the increased stresses on a student athlete's heart, cardiac screening should be part of a physical at least once while in middle school and once in high school. A simple cardiac screening can help detect problems before they become major medical issues. While we recommend all student athletes get an ECG, you should definitely be screened if you: compete in high impact sports that increases your heart rate for long periods of time have a family history indicating that there is a heart disease risk get dizziness during athletics experience fainting spells or weakness while participating get shortness of breath that does not clear quickly get chest pain while participating How is the cardiac screening done? Cardiac screening can be done in a variety of ways to detect a variety of potentially catastrophic genetic diseases. The simplest level of testing is an Electrocardiogram (ECG). This test looks at the electrical signals that the heart uses to contract and circulate blood through the body and lungs. An ECG takes five minutes start to finish and requires electrodes to be placed around the heart to record the signals that it produces. A Cardiologist familiar with the student athlete heart can detect a large number of heart diseases based on the timing of muscles contracting, valves opening and closing, and muscles releasing. Diseases like Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) or thickening of the heart, Long QT Syndrome, Wolff-Parkinson-White Disease, Arrhythmia, and Abnormal Right Ventricular Disease, which are all electrical conduction issues, can be detected with an ECG. How often do you find a problem? On average 95% of all student athletes have no problems or issues. In about 4.5% of all athletes, results are inconclusive or suggest something that an ECG cannot verify, and an Echocardiogram (Echo) is recommended. The Echo is used to get a picture of the heart using sound waves. This is similar to an ultrasound to look at a baby during pregnancy. The Echo looks for valve and vein structure, muscle thickness, and proper operation of the heart. This, in conjunction with an ECG, can detect diseases like Brugada Syndrome or Occlusions of the aorta and veins. Most rarely, but most importantly, we find that 1 in 2000 student athletes are at risk for sudden cardiac death (0.5% overall). Will I see the results of my ECG? Yes. We will return an interpretation to you with a diagnosis of low risk, follow-up or high risk. The school will return a copy of the ECG to the parent or guardian along with information about a potential diagnosis in case of follow up or high risk designation. Who reads the ECG? Who We Play For has trained Cardiologists on staff who have read more than 49,000 student athlete ECGs since we began in 2000. They are uniquely qualified to interpret this particular population the student athlete. Every ECG is interpreted by our Cardiologists personally. What if I require a follow up? The diagnosis will include some documentation on what the potential problem might be, including the EKG. We will provide the names and phone numbers of some recommended Cardiologists to visit in your area. What if I'm considered high risk? If you are flagged as high risk, you should not participate in sports in any way (practice, games, scrimmages, etc) until you have seen a specialist and received clearance or treatment. If you dont have one already, we will offer the contact information of Cardiologists in your area. How much will this cost? Free! A typical doctors appointment with ECG costs $150 and up. Isn't this covered with the annual physical? The annual physical exam asks family history questions, and requires a doctor to listen to the student's heart with a stethoscope. Studies have shown that this is just 1% effective in catching heart disease. Adding ECG screening improves the effectiveness in catching heart issues up to 85%. Pediatricians, Orthopedists and Chiropractors perform most physicals, and generally do not have the equipment on-hand to perform the necessary test or follow-up exam regarding heart health. Our Cardiologists have special training on this particular population, the student athlete, which results in more accurate exams. Are males and females screened together? No, arrangements are made for privacy

Old-timey folk music is typically absent from the mainstream's musical lexicon. It's a strange style of music that harkens back to a simpler times when people weren't connected and intertwined by technology. The lack of folk music has almost created a need for the genre, though, and this is partly why The Avett Brothers have found success. They're one of the few folk bands around that has brought back nostalgic instrumentation and simple songs that are easy to like. The band, from Concord, North Carolina, does, however, incorporate modern influences into its songs to add a bit more relevance to the music and make it sound like folk music that's clearly from the 21st century.

With a reputation as one of the most powerful and talented jam bands on the touring circuit, Widespread Panic has no doubt accomplished what it set out to do when it formed in 1986 in Athens, Georgia. But the road constantly beckons these musical war birds to do what they do best--play live and create heady, instrumental jams. The band's shows, chock full of extended improvisational solos and giant Southern rock riffs, are stuff of folklore and are responsible for legions of fans following the band around the country.
