    Break out the cake and champagne, the Literature Update is 10 this week! On
    July 8, 1998, Rodger Kram posted the first update consisting of four
    articles. Since that time approximately 35,000 articles have been
    distributed to the biomechanics community. Even more amazing is the fact
    that Dan Ferris (a former Literature Update editor) has read every paper.

    Now on to the good stuff…
