To be a bit Courteous when you engage in an Obesity Guerrilla Warfare?


OK let us lay out the map first and we quote the Huffington Post:
"If America's obesity trend continues at its current pace, all 50 states could have obesity rates above 44 percent by 2030, according to a new report from Trust for America's Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation."
This is the full story "http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/18/us-obesity-2030-americans-obese_n_1893578.html"
------------------- OH, Well...------------>

Five days ago we posted this
http://www.floorballcentral.org/2014/01/the-obesity-guerrilla-warfare.html

The scoop here is that we try via twitter to get obesity related accounts on twitter - interested in curbing obesity by using Floorball - or just to know more about Floorball. So we just asked ten accounts, as of below, via targeted and open tweets what they think about Floorball and obesity? Still we have not seen a single word back from any of these 10 different accounts, maybe we or perhaps they - do not know how to read tweets on Twitter? Indeed something seems bogus here.

These are the accounts that we targeted like 5 days ago.











We do not know about you? But our own understanding about being courteous - is that the basic human reaction ought to be - if asked something - you should be civilized enough to reply? But maybe we missed something in our own upbringing here?
So this is not even about Dr. Evil or any odd games that we want to play. We just want them to answer our question. Seems like a basic human stunt, right?

Now 5 days later it is time for our first reminder - and we will measure how many of these accounts answer us back, as well as see what they have to say. The third installment in this series will probably reveal to them that we blog about their ability to answer us via twitter - including links to this blog.

Do we want to embarrass these guys? - No it is not the primary objective. The primary objective is to help them curb obesity with the new tool Floorball - just as Dallas Stars are trying to do with their own fitness initiative for kids in elementary schools in Texas.
But we are not sure how to get these accounts to reply via Twitter. Any readers with a good suggestion?

OK, this is how our reminder tweet will look like to all these accounts.
"Recently I tweeted you about fighting kids obesity with floorball. Now waiting for your reply."

As You read this our reminder tweet has already been sent.

Yes, we promise to follow up on this. Let just hope they answer this time and that they answer good ;-)

Caution

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
