Scholarship and stress shielding

The closing date for applications for the Rockley Scholarship has now passed and thank you to everyone who has supported it so far, by applying, sponsoring or simply spreading the word about it.
From a quick review there are some great applications and it will be a tough task to make a selection but we are about to get reading in earnest and will consider everyone very carefully.

Meanwhile, Mel Isaac has found a very interesting article and posted the link on Facebook:

Its brilliant to think there is finally research being done on the physiological effect of shoes, which has been a glaring omission for so long.
