YouTube Gaming — Google’s Twitch.tv competitor

YouTube logoOne year and one day after Google lost Twitch.tv to Amazon, YouTube Gaming is going public. Starting tomorrow, users can head down to http://gaming.youtube.com (or download the app) to check out the new interface, see who's streaming, or start a stream themselves. We went hands-on with a pre-release version of YouTube shortly after the June announcement, and very soon the site will be ready for public consumption.

YouTube calls YouTube Gaming the "go-to destination for anything and everything gaming." It not only shows who is live streaming, but serves as a collection point for all gaming content on YouTube. YouTube Gaming automatically categorizes YouTube's gaming content and sorts it by game and by the content of video. This allows users to easily see the most popular content for their favorite game.

A beta version of the new live streaming dashboard is also launching tomorrow. The new dashboard makes streaming less of a scheduled event and more of a casual thing that streamers can do whenever they want. Streaming on YouTube Gaming is done on HTML5, and, unlike Twitch, streamers can enable a "DVR Mode" that buffers the last four hours of a stream and allows viewers to rewind.

YouTube Gaming will give Twitch.tv the biggest competition in the live streaming space it has ever seen. Almost every Twitch streamer also uses YouTube for archival purposes and as an additional revenue stream, and now YouTube is a one-stop-shop for every kind of gaming video on the Web.

Starting tomorrow, YouTube says gaming.youtube.com should work for users "in any country where YouTube is available." The Android phone and tablet app launches tomorrow, too, in the US and UK with "other countries coming soon." The iOS app will be available at this link, and for now everything is English-only.

You don't state his age or what his general state of ehlath or conditioning are. This is important as the better shape he is in the faster things are going to get better. Does he stand on concrete all of his shift? If he does then it would help him to get better shoes with support built in or get some Dr. Scholl's gel inserts. As for the daily pain use ice on the lower back for fifteen to twenty minutes each hour. This will stop the pain and swelling that is taking place. Is he doing any lifting at work and if so does he wear a lifting belt? This might help to a degree if only to remind him to use his legs not his back to lift. Does he do any stretching while at work and especially when he comes home? Here are a few stretches that can be done at home. Lie on the floor with the legs totally outstretched. Keep the knees down and gently pull the front of the feet towards the knees. There should be a gentle stretching sensation in the calves. From the starting position bring one knee up to the chest and bear hug it down using the arms. Hold for ten seconds and then release to a point where the hip is at 90 degrees. Bring the knee down again and repeat for four more times. Slowly return that leg to the floor and do the other leg. On the last repetition of that leg keep the knee up and bring the opposite leg up to it. Bring both knees into the chest and bear hug them for ten seconds. Repeat four more times. Return one leg slowly to the floor and then the remaining leg. Bring one leg up so that the foot is flat on the floor and the knee is bent to 90 degrees. Using the opposite leg bring it up straight as far as it will go gently. Hold that stretch for ten and repeat four more times. Reverse legs and repeat the process five times. Bring both knees up to the position of being flat on the floor and the knees at 90 degrees. Slowly rock the knees from one side to the other. Find a rhythm which is comfortable and continue for a minute or two. Work on crunches and hip extension exercises that will stabilize the pelvis. Most of all see a physical therapist that can help with postural issues along with setting up an exercise program that can be done at home and at a gym.
