Digital devices blamed for creating a generation of ‘glow kid’ addicts

first_imgStuff co.nz 8 October 2017Family First Comment: Interesting! We actually raised this concern with our report in 2015 – which at the time, the media and the Children’s Commissioner scoffed at. But we’ve been proved right.Read our report https://www.familyfirst.org.nz/research/screen-time-2015/Children who spend too much time on their digital devices are at risk of developing neurological disorders, a high school is warning parents.While many schools embrace learning through laptops and tablets, Palmerston North Boys’ High School staff penned a letter to parents citing warnings from American psychologist Nicholas Kardaras.“Exposure to technology is essential for our young men,” the school said in the letter.“However, it is essential the manner in which they are exposed to this technology is controlled and monitored so that the benefits are not diminished by the proven negatives.”“There is an increasing amount of clinical research correlating screen time with disorders such as ADHD, anxiety, depression and increased anxiety.”Kardaras coined the phrase “glow kids” to describe the generation of children and teens growing up immersed in digital technology, and lit by a screen.Computer games and websites are designed to be appealing and addictive. His findings, based on clinical evidence, shows this addiction could be as harmful to the developing brain as cocaine addiction, but is more difficult to cure.READ MORE: https://www.stuff.co.nz/life-style/parenting/97579974/Digital-devices-blamed-for-creating-a-generation-of-glow-kid-addicts?cid=app-iPhonelast_img read more

Terry expects summer contract talks

first_img The 32-year-old defender’s current five-year deal expires in 2014, but having been integral in the successes of the 10-year Roman Abramovich era, the former England skipper has been a more peripheral figure this season. “I’ve got a year left at Chelsea after this,” Terry said in the London Evening Standard. “People have spoken about no new contract and this kind of thing but it’s not even on the agenda at the moment.” Chelsea captain John Terry expects to open discussions over a contract extension this summer. “They may sit down with me once the season has finished and we’ll start talking then. “Whether it’s a yes or a no I’ll continue to give my very best until my contract finishes.” Terry has endured a challenging campaign which featured a lengthy absence due to a knee injury, while the skipper has also missed out on selection for some key fixtures, including the FA Cup semi-final loss to Manchester City. Chelsea’s policy is to offer those over 30 years of age only 12-month deals and left-back Ashley Cole signed a one-year extension in January. Midfielder Frank Lampard is 35 in June and his current deal expires this summer. It is uncertain where Lampard will play next season. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Chelsea confirm Willian deal

first_img Willian began his career in his homeland with Corinthians before moving to Europe with Shakhtar Donetsk in 2007. He made over 100 appearances for the Ukrainians before going to Anzhi in January of this year but his Russian adventure will be short-lived. Mourinho is now likely to turn his intentions to getting Rooney, with a third bid planned after Monday’s Barclays Premier League clash at Old Trafford. Chelsea have been told repeatedly that Rooney is not for sale, but still Mourinho is chasing his man. “When you own a player, you have a contract with a player for a long time, even if the player wishes to leave – and sometimes that happens,” Mourinho said. “That contradiction happens. The player wants to leave, the club wants to keep (him). “We (managers) have to make a decision one way or another way. We have to persuade the player to stay, or the player persuades us to sell.” Asked how he rates Chelsea’s chances of signing Rooney, Mourinho said: “I don’t care. In this moment I don’t care.” Where the Willian move leaves Spurs now is unclear, with the forward seemingly lined up as their replacement for Gareth Bale should he complete his protracted move to Real Madrid. This latest development could prove to be yet another delay in the summer’s longest-running transfer saga and possibly increase the chances of the Welshman staying in north London. Chelsea have confirmed that they have reached an agreement to sign Willian from Anzhi Makhachkala. Press Association The Brazilian had looked to be on the verge of joining Tottenham earlier this week but the Blues have outmanoeuvred their London rivals and the forward will now move to Stamford Bridge subject to a work permit being granted. A statement on www.chelseafc.com read: “Chelsea Football Club can confirm an agreement has been reached with both Willian and his club Anzhi Makhachkala for the transfer of the Brazilian player. “The transfer is subject to a work permit hearing on Wednesday.” The 25-year-old had got as far as completing a medical at Spurs but his about-turn will come as a boost to Blues boss Jose Mourinho, who has been looking to add to his attacking options this summer. The Portuguese has had two bids rejected for Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney and is now being linked with another Anzhi player in Samuel Eto’o. Mourinho hinted that Willian had chosen the Blues over Spurs in his press conference on Friday, although the player had yet to complete his medical at that point. “I think he’s already made his decision,” Mourinho said. The self-styled ‘Special One’ nodded in the affirmative when asked if that was Chelsea. He added: “I don’t like to speak before time because football can be crazy. “I know what the player wants, so in this moment we cannot hide. That is a possibility.” last_img read more

Bangladesh team leave a changed New Zealand after mosque shootings

first_imgWELLINGTON, New Zealand (Reuters) – Bangladesh’s cricket team left New Zealand, yesterday, less than 24 hours after narrowly avoiding being involved in the worst mass shooting in the country, which now had to accept that sporting events were likely to have been changed forever.A lone gunman killed 49 people and wounded more than 20 during Friday prayers at two mosques in Christchurch in the country’s worst mass shooting which Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern condemned as “a terrorist attack”.The Bangladesh team were on a bus that was approaching the Al Noor mosque, where 41 people died, on the eve of the third Test at nearby Hagley Oval when the shooting began.The Test match, which had been scheduled to start yesterday, was cancelled after the shooting and Bangladesh’s tour abandoned.Violent crime is extremely rare in New Zealand and Bangladesh Cricket Board said the attacks had now changed their perception about team security on tours.“We’ll demand proper security wherever our team goes in future,” BCB president Nazmul Hassan told reporters in Dhaka on Friday. “If a country provides proper security as per our demand, then we will go otherwise not.“I can say that everything will change after this incident.”Pakistan’s Minister for Human Rights, Shireen Mazari, also suggested the world governing body, the International Cricket Council (ICC), should possibly take a harder line against hosting matches in New Zealand.“ICC should take note & perhaps suspend int’l cricket in NZ after this act of terrorism,” Mazari said on Twitter.Pakistan has been unable to host matches at home since 2009, when gunmen attacked the bus carrying the Sri Lanka team to a match in Lahore. Six of the visiting team were wounded and eight locals killed.New Zealand have not toured Pakistan since 2002 following a suicide bombing outside their hotel in Karachi and instead played their games in the United Arab Emirates.They also abandoned a tour of Sri Lanka in 1987 following a bombing near their hotel in Colombo.New Zealand Cricket chief executive David White said the country would now also need to accept they were no longer immune from acts of extreme violence and that would need to be factored in when they hosted sports events and teams.“This is shocking. This will change the entire fabric of international sports hosting. I think everything changes now,” he said.“We’ll certainly have to look at our security in depth. I think the idea of New Zealand being a safe haven is gone now.“We now have to be very, very vigilant – all the authorities and sporting organisations, absolutely.”last_img read more

FB : Last time they played: Syracuse 34, Toledo 7

first_img Published on September 22, 2011 at 12:00 pm Comments Walter Reyes had a wide smile on his face when he struck the Heisman pose after Syracuse’s win over Central Florida. And a week later, when the Orangemen played Toledo, Reyes further bolstered his case for the Heisman Trophy.The SU running back followed up a 241-yard, four-touchdown UCF game with 162 yards rushing and two touchdowns against the Rockets.Reyes gave credit to his offensive line for opening up gaping holes to run through following the game.‘The (offensive line) makes holes about this big,’ Reyes said in an article published by The Daily Orange on Sept. 29, 2003.  ‘At first, I’m expecting to get hit and then it’s like, ‘Oh, here we go.”With the help of his offensive line, Reyes led Syracuse to a 34-7 throttling of Toledo. Reyes couldn’t be contained, busting out for two touchdown runs of 61 yards and 43 yards in length. The Orangemen combined its fierce running attack that went for 303 yards on 47 carries with a stingy pass defense to easily beat the Rockets.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAfter the win over Toledo, Reyes led the nation in rushing with 170.3 yards per game and scoring with 15.5 points per game. He finished the year with 1,347 yards rushing, 975 receiving and 20 touchdowns rushing on the season.The Orangemen improved to 3-1 after stifling the Rockets. The Syracuse defense was prepared for Toledo’s short passing scheme. The Rockets were only able to gain 57 yards on 13 screen plays.Syracuse defensive coordinator Chris Rippon recognized Bruce Gradkowski’s tendency to throw the short pass. Gradkowski threw the ball 50 times, but the Orangemen held the Toledo quarterback to just 5.1 yards per pass.‘Their passing game is really more like a running game,’ Rippon said to The Daily Orange after the game. ‘It’s a lot of short passes, a lot of screen passes.’The Orangemen controlled the clock, running 39 plays before halftime. Reyes’ ability to break free for big plays even astounded his teammates. The nearly 36,000 fans in the Carrier Dome took notice, too, giving him a standing ovation.‘He just bursts through that hole, and it opens like the Red Sea,’ tight end Lenny Cusumano said to The Daily Orange after the game. ‘Walter gets up in there, the hole opens up and he takes it to the house. It’s just unbelievable the way he hits that hole.’Toledo only mustered one touchdown in the third quarter, and by that time the Orangemen were already out in front 27-0.‘I can’t say that we anticipated that they would only score seven points,’ SU head coach Paul Pasqualoni said to The Daily Orange after the game. ‘But one of the objectives on defense was to bend, slow it down and try not to break.’Reyes was able to outrun the whole Rockets’ defense on his two touchdowns. Despite overextending his quad on one play, the Orangemen continued to feed Reyes the ball rather than turn to backup Damien Rhodes. The Rockets were unable to find a remedy for the Orangemen running attack.‘We tried to run blitz on those short-yardage plays and make a big play,’ Toledo head coach Tom Amstutz said to The Daily Orange after the game. ‘He made some moves, found a hole and just took off.’— Compiled by Andrew Tredinnick, asst. copy editor, adtredin@syr.educenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Syracuse shoots itself out of overtime loss to Wisconsin

That’s my fault’ Published on December 2, 2015 at 11:25 pm Contact Sam: sblum@syr.edu | @SamBlum3center_img Trevor Cooney’s long 3 off a screen at the top of arc bounced high off the rim. It clanked the cylinder twice more before dropping through the net.That was the first shot that brought Syracuse back.Getting bombarded on the glass, shooting 2-of-12 from 3, the Orange was hanging on by a thread.But Cooney’s first 3 gave SU the lead. His second 3, one minute and 17 seconds later, put Syracuse up six. That was the third shot, sandwiching a long 3 from Michael Gbinije. Wisconsin called a timeout.“But after that,” Cooney said, “we couldn’t get that bucket we needed to really push it and make that run.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textOutside of that 77-second span, Syracuse (6-1) shot 4-of-21 from behind the arc. SU head coach Jim Boeheim said the difference was simply SU’s poor offense. It was a team that made its living in the Bahamas by shooting 46.6 percent from 3, facing a team in Wisconsin (5-3) that allowed teams to hit 45.1 percent of 3-pointers. The formula proved far from absolute on Wednesday, as the Orange dropped a 66-58 overtime decision to the Badgers in the Big Ten-ACC Challenge in the Carrier Dome.Wisconsin’s guards chased over screens and forced the Orange into long, difficult 3s. Some of the shots that fell a week ago simply missed a week later.“They shot themselves out of it by trying to shoot themselves into it,” Wisconsin forward Nigel Hayes said.The shot clock had wound down to two seconds before Dajuan Coleman picked up a ball bouncing well away from the 3-point line and shuffled it over to Malachi Richardson. The freshman was forced into a quick release 30 feet away from the basket that banked high off the glass and in on the very first possession of the game.Syracuse had picked up where it left off. Six 3-point attempts from Richardson later, that was still his only make. Tyler Lydon finished 0-for-3. Cooney, who hit those two 3s, didn’t make another before or after that.When the rebounding failed Syracuse in the Bahamas, the shooting was there to pick it up.“The difference really in these games is we played just as hard, probably just as well as we played in the tournament,” Boeheim said, “but we shot 50 percent from the 3 and we didn’t miss free throws. Simple as that, simple as that.”With 46 seconds left in overtime, and Syracuse down by five, Richardson missed from deep. Before that, Gbinije missed a jumper. He missed again after as well. The fans in the Carrier Dome had started streaming out by the time Gbinije pulled up and hit Syracuse’s all-too-late final long-range shot of the night.It was 62-58 with 21 seconds to play in overtime, and it served only as feigned hope. Syracuse’s run had gained momentum in the second half. It was capped off when Gbinije put Syracuse up four with 3:12 left to play in regulation. Now, the Orange was down by four.“With such a close and tough game, we’re not really mentally conscious of the missed shots,” Gbinije said “… It’s after the game that we’re able to reflect, and I haven’t reflected much yet.”On Wednesday, Gbinije and the Orange had 17 missed 3s to reflect on. Syracuse’s undefeated start to the season was undone because it failed to do what it had done best. Commentslast_img read more
