TAGSChildrenCOVID-19FamilyfitnesshealthholidayIdeaskidsnew yearPandemicParentingPlayResearchStudytips Previous articleOrange County’s new fire recruits make history for diversityNext articleNew shows and movies coming to Disney Plus January 2021 Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR New Year’s 2021By Patrick J Lewis, University of Regina and Whitney Blaisdell, University of ReginaWe hear constantly how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the economy, personal finance, education, health, and the workday. But what about play — how has the pandemic affected play?The community capacity to provide play opportunities has been diminished by COVID-19 restrictions or closures, yet parental workload at home has generally grown, which in turn has strained parents’ mental well-being. Children’s play is now largely determined by parents’ ability to facilitate play in or around the home.Research at the University of Regina has explored the effects that the pandemic appears to have on play. A recent study analyzed 10 conversations of between 60 and 90 minutes with parent participants describing their experiences in one-on-one virtual meetings, as well as hundreds of electronically submitted stories about play (or lack thereof) during the pandemic. The study is now undergoing peer review.Since many communities are facing challenging second wave lockdowns or restrictions, we wanted to share our current recommendations for supporting play at home during the COVID-19 pandemic through the holidays and into 2021 based on our early findings and our research expertise in play.Making an effort to get outside even for a few minutes every day appears to be a critical step towards play, health, and happiness during these challenging times. Photo by Fernanda Greppe on Unsplash1. Prioritize your own wellnessParental wellness is a critical factor to play during the pandemic. Adults whose wellness is suffering are more likely to become not only less playful but to actively resist play. Conversely, adult wellness spills over to benefit children through an increased ability to be fun-loving, relaxed, and playful. It is recommended that adults prioritize their own wellness throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.2. Value playPlay is often undervalued. A perceived importance of academic achievement over play for small children and an increasingly risk-avoidant society can threaten children’s opportunities to play.Play is a wonderful tool for learning and cognitive development. More importantly, play is fun and life is short.In the midst of a pandemic that has placed constant demands on people to adapt their professional capacities while lacking in-person contact, play can become a vital avenue for both adults and children to strengthen our outlook and resilience. Approaching the pandemic, as much as possible, as a novel opportunity for family togetherness and play allows us to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic with greater joy and to foster resilience.3. Set a tone for neighborhood playThe visibility of children playing outdoors appears to be contagious. Parents can normalize free play by offering their children more freedom to play or even discussing their desire for a more playful community with neighbors.Children have generally been expected to meet public health guidelines in school that often include wearing masks and maintaining physical distance from people outside of their household; parents can ask and reasonably expect children to follow the same guidelines in their outdoor play. The current lack of structured activities combined with the professional obligations of many parents working from home has created an opportunity for community revitalization of children’s outdoor free play.Parents can play a role in normalizing free play by offering their children more freedom to play outside or talking with neighbors. Photo by Atoms on Unsplash4. See children as drivers of playChildren often engage in play with items or ideas that appear unchildlike or unplayful. Their play may revolve around mature concepts like death, illness, justice, and control. Psychologist Lev Vygotsky famously wrote: “In play a child is always above his average age, above his daily behavior; in play it is as though he were a head taller than himself. As in the focus of a magnifying glass, play contains all developmental tendencies in a condensed form; in play it is as though the child were trying to jump above the level of his normal behavior.”Seeing children as drivers of their own play who are capable of conceiving, planning, and executing their play will offer children an opportunity to increase their play stamina, while putting less stress on parents to entertain their children.5. Arrange a playful environmentHomes with access to a private yard stand out as an advantage in offering opportunities for play. Of course, this is a privilege that many families do not have. However, a playful environment can be arranged with little to no spending. First, make the home feel as safe as necessary, so children can freely explore the home environment with minimal supervision.Next, minimize toys. Children’s play relies surprisingly little on toys, and tidying toys can be a burden to parents who are currently experiencing a heavier domestic workload.Finally, make outdoor access as easy as possible. Visible and easily accessed outerwear and footwear, and mats or towels near exterior doors to minimize mess, help make outdoor play more enjoyable and attractive.6. Get outsideSpending time playing outdoors has been found to greatly contribute to one’s overall well-being.Trying to make an effort to get outside even for a few minutes every day appears to be a critical step towards play, health, and happiness during these challenging times.Overall, COVID-19 is wreaking havoc on our individual and collective health and social and emotional functioning. As we stumble our way through this pandemic, let’s remember that play itself is integral to how children can process and understand their experiences with the pandemic; it is how they make sense of the world.Through attending to our own wellness, examining our attitudes towards play, normalizing child-structured outdoor play, framing children as drivers of play, arranging a playful environment, and spending time outside, we too are attempting to be more playful and joyful during this challenging time. We wish the readers all the best in their own pursuit of play.This article is republished from The Conversation under a Creative Commons license.

Gurthro Steenkamp’s contender for hit of the year

first_imgTuesday Sep 16, 2008 Gurthro Steenkamp’s contender for hit of the year The Blue Bulls smashed the Boland Kavaliers 69-19 at Loftus Versfeld on Friday evening in a Currie Cup match that was jam packed with action, featuring tries a plenty, but not without the odd huge hit to rub salt into the wounds. The half time score sat at 38-0, and by the 55th minute the home team had notched up 11 tries, prompting them to take their foot off the gas slightly, allowing the Kavaliers to run in three consolation tries of their own. The physical nature of the Bulls, combined with the passionate (sometimes hostile) crowd, make Loftus Versfeld a very difficult place for any team to visit. That intimidation factor, combined with a pack of gorilla’s waiting to rip your head off, means that smaller unions like Boland are normally on a hiding to nothing when playing away in Pretoria. This hit by burly Springbok and Bulls prop Gurthro Steenkamp is no doubt a contender for hit of the season, as he absolutely laid into Kavalier replacement Cecil Kemp.

Tri Nations and Bledisloe Cup glory for the All Blacks

first_imgSunday Sep 14, 2008 Tri Nations and Bledisloe Cup glory for the All Blacks The All blacks came back from trailing at halftime to claim their ninth Tri Nations title and their fourth in a row when they beat the Wallabies 28-24 in a thrilling deciding match in Brisbane on Saturday.Three converted tries in the second half devastated a tired looking Australian side that battled bravely throughout and had a real chance of snatching it at the death.Flyhalf Dan Carter scored the winning try with 12 minutes left to seal the victory, although Australia kept the 52,000 Suncorp fans on the edge of their seats when centre Ryan Cross crashed over with two minutes to go to get to within four points.It was too little too late though as New Zealand grabbed both the Tri Nations title and the Bledisloe Cup, much to the delight of the large New Zealand contingent in the crowd.Coach Graham Henry said his side had shown enormous character to beat an inspired Australian outfit.“I’ve just got a huge amount of respect for what the guys did out there tonight. They were down 17-7 and showed a lot of togetherness and guts to come back from that,” he said.It was New Zealand’s third consecutive Tri Nations Test win after Auckland and Cape Town, all three achieved with the same starting 15.The success highlights the incredible depth of New Zealand rugby, with half of last year’s World cup squad including Carl Hayman, Chris Jack, Aaron Mauger, Luke McAlister, Doug Howlett and Byron Kelleher, all having left to play overseas.

Hogg’s 9 February post on Twitter has so far seen 2m views, and many thousands of shares.The Hastings lifeboat had launched with six volunteer crew onboard after a surfer was reported in difficulty.RNLI’s Facebook Donate post went live on the same day, stating that the casualty and crew had all returned safely from the callout, and thanking people for their support.

The Combine Monitor isn’t Telling You Everything

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter By Hoosier Ag Today – Sep 20, 2017 SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News The Combine Monitor isn’t Telling You Everything The Combine Monitor isn’t Telling You Everything Keep-walking-fieldsAs harvest 17 begins, season long evaluation of the crop continues, but now it’s really crunch time. Daniel Call, General Manager of Seed Consultants says considering what the crop has gone through this growing season, he’s not surprised when he hears the range in yields. But Call reminds farmers the combine monitor isn’t telling you everything you need to know about the crop, which is why it is still important to walk fields.“When you walk through a field you can find some fields where stalk quality is pretty poor,” said Call. “It’s not something the farmer did, but a lot of that is environment related and with the amount of moisture, losing the nitrogen we lost and you look at, we inoculated these plants with every disease possible, so we knew that the potential was going to be there. Now if we have a rapid harvest, we probably get out ahead of that, but with the way the weather is set up and as cool as it has been the last couple of weeks, this doesn’t look like it is going to be a quick harvest.”And because of a year like this, Seed Consultants has been taking a close look at their seed applied fungicides.“Our biggest concern is, we can have the best traits in the world, we can have the best germ plasmin in the world, but if we don’t get the stand establishment, what’s it worth?” Call said. “So what we are trying to do is, yeah, we’re going to continue to offer those excellent genetics and those excellent traits, but we are trying to maximize our stand establishment out of the gate for our customers. So we are adding more fungicides and taking a look at the products on the seed in order to do that and that’s why we think we have a competitive advantage over our competition by offering the additional products on that seed.” Previous articleDonnelly Leads Push for Export FundingNext articleFarm Safety Week Focuses on Confined Spaces Hoosier Ag Todaylast_img read more

The candidates, Patton Maynard and Josh Witkop, will take the weekend to prepare for the runoff, which will take place next week, according to SGA’s Elections and Regulations Chair Clayton Dana-Bashian. “I have been told that due to there being more than two candidates, no candidate was able to accumulate more than 50 percent of the vote,” Maynard said. “We’ve prepared for this and we’re ready to finish what we started back in March.”SGA presidential candidate Patton Maynard.

Dana-Bashian said the candidates will campaign between Monday, April 15 and Wednesday, April 17, leading up to the election that will take place from 9 a.m to 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, April 17.Maynard said his campaign strategy will remain the same in the run-off. “Our plan is to carry on the same task we started at the very beginning of empowering the student body,” Maynard said. “We plan to highlight our campaign’s mission rather than discuss the faults of our opponent’s.”Witkop said his motto, “Serve On”, goes beyond the campaign. “Serve On transcends candidates and individuals,” Witkop said. “When we get caught up on personal comparisons between candidates, an election moves away from messages and ideas. At the end of the day, my team and I don’t evaluate ourselves or our campaign based on who we can overcome in an election, but on the students we can serve in a presidency.”Ontario Brown, the Vice President External elect, said that he could work well with any of the three initial candidates.“Each one has helped me out as a leader, SGA representative and a person,” Brown said. “They have all touched my life in many ways.”Widick concurs.“Josh and Patton would both make excellent student body presidents!” she said. “Both have been involved in SGA for many years, are involved in other organizations on campus, and are both willing to dedicate the time and energy that is required over the next year to fight for students.”Students can expect to receive an email Wednesday morning to vote. The last time there was an SGA run-off election was in 2017 when both the president and vice president of external affairs positions required a run-off. Welcome TCU Class of 2025last_img read more

Dr. Samuel Gidding Joins the Pasadena’s FH Foundation as Chief Medical Officer

first_imgGiving Back Dr. Samuel Gidding Joins the Pasadena’s FH Foundation as Chief Medical Officer From STAFF REPORTS Published on Friday, July 20, 2018 | 10:59 am Business News Dr. Samuel Gidding. Photo courtesy the FH FoundationThe FH Foundation, a global research and advocacy organization, today announced that Dr. Samuel Gidding will join as chief medical officer. Dr. Gidding brings more than 30 years of experience in preventative cardiology, pediatric cardiology and heart failure/transplantation with a strong focus in familial hypercholesterolemia (FH), most recently serving as division head of pediatric cardiology at Nemours Cardiac Center and A. I. DuPont Hospital for Children, and professor of pediatrics at Thomas Jefferson University.“As the scale and scope of the FH Foundation’s national and international portfolio of work grows, we are pleased to have Dr. Gidding join the leadership team of the FH Foundation as our Chief Medical Officer,” said Katherine Wilemon, founder and CEO of the FH Foundation. “Dr. Gidding’s extensive expertise as a pediatric cardiologist and scientist, as well as his deep understanding of FH as a family condition, will contribute greatly to the FH Foundation’s research, advocacy, and community programs.”“FH is a pressing public health concern, leaving 1 in 220 individuals at tremendous risk of early heart disease,” Dr. Gidding said. “The FH Foundation has been a catalyzing force to drive both clinical practice guidelines and the implementation of novel precision medicine approaches to ensure the early identification and treatment of individuals with FH. By building upon these efforts, we have the opportunity to change the trajectory of heart disease in the U.S. and worldwide.”Dr. Gidding has practiced pediatric and preventive cardiology for the Nemours Cardiac Center for the past 18 years. He has led and designed clinical trials that span statin interventions in adolescents, PCSK9 inhibitors, diabetes, early imaging of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular morbidity of obesity. Dr. Gidding founded The Pediatric Atherosclerosis Prevention and Lipidology (PeDAL), a consortium dedicated to prevention of adult onset lipid related diseases beginning in youth. He has developed clinical practice guidelines and scientific statements on familial hypercholesterolemia, hypertension, tobacco, obesity, nutrition, diabetes, and congenital heart disease for AHA, AAP, NHLBI, WHO, CDC, EAS, NLA and ADA. He received his medical degree from the College of Medicine and Dentistry of NJ Rutgers Medical School and conducted additional training at University of Michigan and SUNY-Upstate.About Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH)FH is the most common genetic cause of early, life-threatening cardiovascular disease.i FH is a global public health concern that affects over 30 million people worldwide and more than 1.3 million people in the U.S., but less than 10 percent are diagnosed.ii FH causes high LDL cholesterol from birth and is the cause for 20 percent of early heart attacksiii (heart attacks that occur in the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s). Early and significant reduction of LDL cholesterol is key to successful management of FH, which requires lifelong treatment.About the FH FoundationThe FH Foundation is a leading research and advocacy non-profit organization focused on reducing heart disease by driving scientific understanding and evidence-based care of FH.

The Reading List Project : Must-Read Books For Law Students & Lawyers

Colleges and universities often teach foundational theories and concepts with a few basic procedural and substantive laws. While this helps in creating a basic understanding, it is in no way enough. To fill this void of knowledge, most law students take to reading — only to realize that they do not know what they should or shouldn’t read. Also, while a number of reading lists are already available online, many of them are generic, shallow and often cater to a non-Indian reader base. For example: I never found a must-read like K.G. Kannabiran’s Wages of Impunity on any of these widely circulated online lists. To read a good book, you should first know that the book exists. The Reading List Project is an effort to collate and curate the most exhaustive, robust and valuable reading list for law students and aspiring litigators in India. The list aims to help students and aspiring litigators to cut through the numerous books available and focus on the ones that really matter. The books mentioned in the list are reading suggestions by practicing advocates, journalists and leading academics. How It Was Done I created a Google Docs page and added a few books that I felt were important reads. For example: Anuj Bhuwania’s Courting the People. I then shared the editable Google Docs page with numerous members of the legal fraternity. They were requested to add their book suggestions from various areas of the law; the result of which is a diverse and extensive list of books written by both domestic and foreign authors. The list is not permanent and is supposed to be ever evolving. It shall be updated at regular intervals with newer book suggestions, as well as with sub-lists in different areas of study such as race, culture, finance, etc. This is my humble attempt to make the study of law a bit easier and bit more enjoyable — for law students across India and also, for me. I hope this helps you. If you have any suggestions for the list, please reach out to me on Twitter. Most importantly, I would like to thank Radhika Roy, Vikram Hegde, Anuj Bhuwania, Bhawna Gandhi, Apar Gupta, Vasundhara Sirnate, Afreen Alam and Arushi Singh for taking out the time and helping me curate this list. I would also like to thank the numerous kind-hearted law students, advocates and other reading enthusiasts on the internet who have helped me shape and share this list!
