The Famous Daily Dozen Exercises | The Art of Manliness
The Daily Dozen that Walter Camp taught the U.S. military, and then the entire nation, consisted of exercises he had created and practiced himself over six decades of life. The movements were born both of a dissatisfaction with existing forms of calisthenics — which Camp thought were too rigid, hard, and boring — and from a concern that we’re very familiar with today: that the creation of modern technologies and conveniences were robbing people of the “primal” health and agility once known to their wild ancestors. Camp’s philosophy on fitness didn’t sound too different than that espoused by present day groups like MovNat, lamenting as he did that modern citizens “are caged creatures, even though we do not see the bars that imprison us” and devising the Daily Dozen as “a substitute for the normal activities of mankind in the primitive state.”

New faculty: Yolanda J. McDonald, assistant professor of human and organizational development | Research News @ Vanderbilt | Vanderbilt University
A self-described “medical geographer,” Yolanda J. McDonald begins each new research project with the “where” of things, before getting to the who, what, when and how.

Specifically, McDonald applies a geographic lens to questions about health disparities, examining how race and ethnicity, socioeconomic status and where people live affect their physical health.

A key area of interest is cervical cancer, a mostly preventable disease that claims the lives of about 4,000 American women each year. She wants to know why.
