Panthers' 'Keep Pounding' drum headed to Super Bowl

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) When the Carolina Panthers take on the Denver Broncos this Sunday in Super Bowl 50, there will be a familiar object on the sideline.

The Keep Pounding drum will be in Santa Clara for the game. According to Panthers.com[1], assistant defensive line coach Sam Mills III s face lit up when he heard that drum might make it across the country for the game.

There s a rumor the Keep Pounding drum is heading west, a smiling Mills said to defensive line coach Eric Washington. We ve been joking about that, but I didn t even think it was a possibility.

When we first started it (in 2012), people didn t really know how to take it, Mills said. But now, that drum has come to signify the starting bell of a heavyweight fight. Every Sunday, we re in a heavyweight fight, and when someone hits that drum, it s time to go. We re locked in. The power behind Keep Pounding couldn t be more personal to Mills, whose father was the architect of the stirring sentiment. Stricken with cancer at the outset of the 2003 season, the Panthers former linebacker turned assistant coach told the team to keep pounding in an emotional speech prior to a playoff run that resulted in Carolina s only other Super Bowl appearance.

The addition of the drum has only added to the impact of Mills legacy.

Sam Mills III is up in the coaches box before every home game the main reason he hasn t banged the drum himself but it s still a highlight of game day for him and the Panthers.

I have not missed one. The organization did a great job of timing it up, and I make sure my eyes are on that drum every time it gets hit, Mills said. I got excited when Steph Curry did it, and Mr. (Jerry) Richardson, that was awesome that he would be a part of that. But to see Ricky Proehl do it knowing that he was around during that time, and him taking the jacket off and showing his jersey, me and some other coaches in the booth had tears in our eyes.

My brother did it, with my mom and my sister down there as well. That was really awesome, really nice. It s 98 percent logistics (that I haven t done it), and then two percent of it is that it would probably be difficult for me emotionally to do that and then get back into game mode.

Cycling Infrastructure Skills: Achieving Balance in Scheme Design
28th January 2016 (09:15 16:00)

This session will look at balancing the benefits and dis-benefits of cycling schemes in relation to Health, Safety and Journey Time. Cycling may benefit the health of Londoners but it also needs to be safe and if new facilities make more bus passengers late to work then how is balance achieved? This is a conundrum that faces every scheme and is acutely felt in cycling schemes, particularly those that seek to reallocate road space towards cyclists. This session will look at using the HEAT tool and Healthy Streets Indicators to quantify health benefits, then collision analysis techniques to quantify potential collision savings and finally bus journey time calculations to quantify delay.

The session will conclude with a debate on how to balance all three for the maximum potential benefit of Londoners.

Transported by Design Site Visit
29th January 2016 (10:00 12:15)

An exciting talk and tour celebrating Transport for London s role in design across the transport network; past, present and future, we hear about the pioneering, visionary and beautiful designs that are all around our city. We use and see them every day but are not often aware of their history, their origins and the thinking behind these iconic designs. Transported by Design gives us an opportunity to celebrate our rich design heritage, dating back over 150 years and see what designs are currently being developing for the future to inspire us all. It will raise your awareness of transport design used everyday by Londoners as well as visitors to the city, and the iconic heritage of good design. We will also be visiting the Eco-Cycle initiative just next door to look at a new start-up to encourage cycling in London, with state-of-the-art storage facilities and amenities. An uplifting project that could be replicated across London.
