Stuff co.nz 18 January 2019Family First Comment: Read our 2015 report on this issue https://www.familyfirst.org.nz/research/screen-time-2015/Kiwi children who spend too much time on screens are becoming sicker, more obese, and more likely to be hyperactive, according to a new study.Commissioned by the Ministry of Social Development, the study also showed young children who exceeded the recommended electronic screen time had poorer motor skills than those who were less exposed to the technology.Researchers from Auckland University of Technology (AUT) and the University of Auckland analysed the development of more than 5000 children in the New Zealand-first study, using data from the longitudinal study Growing Up in New Zealand.The researchers found two-year-olds who exceeded the daily screen time guideline of one hour each day were more likely to experience behavioural and health problems at about 4½ years of age.Ministry of Health guidelines recommend no screen time at all for children under two years, and less than an hour a day for children between two and five years.The study found children under two years spent an average of 1.5 hours a day on screens, increasing to two hours a day for children aged 3¾ years.Report author Associate Professor Scott Duncan said those numbers did not surprise the researchers, but the significant health effects of too much screen time did.READ MORE: https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/110028837/too-much-screen-time-is-giving-kids-health-problems-like-obesity-and-poor-motor-skillsKeep up with family issues in NZ.

After a two-game trip to California over Labor Day Weekend, the Wisconsin men’s soccer team will be adding to their frequent flier miles this weekend as they travel to Florida for another pair of matches. Their first game will be against Florida International Friday, followed by Florida Atlantic Sunday.Coming off a long stretch of games and travel, the Badgers’ main focus in practice this week has been recovery. The extra rest has been especially important given the fact they have a freshmen-laden roster, which has never experienced the rigor of a collegiate schedule before.“It’s been tough since we’re on this little two-week span here of just games and traveling,” goalie Ryan Vint said. “But we’re coming off of this last week and we’re feeling pretty good about how our team is coming together, how freshmen are getting along with the upperclassmen and fitting into our system.”Wisconsin’s roster is comprised of 13 freshmen, seven of which have already seen action this season. The most notable freshman has been forward Chris Prince, who was named to the all-tournament team in California.“I think Chris Prince did a good job,” defender Aaron Nichols said. “He stayed pretty confident throughout both games. He was constantly staying involved. He has good fitness and you know he fits right in. He’s there physically and you could tell that he’s a very mature freshman.”It would be hard for any team to go from opposite ends of the country with only four days rest and perform at a high level. However, if any team can do it, it’s the Badgers. This is a team that is accustomed to change. They have gone through three coaches in as many years. This season, the team is going through change in the form of players. Along with the freshmen, the Badgers have a slew of new players looking to contribute this year, including junior transfer Arnel Zahirovic and redshirt freshman Derek Pitts. Both saw their first playing time as Badgers in last weekend’s matches. Because of the recent contributions of the aforementioned players, there has been a lot of shuffling around of the Badgers’ line-up lately. This has made for a more competitive practice environment.“We’re still trying to find the right pieces to the puzzle,” Vint said. “We’re getting close, but it’s a process. Different people step up at different times and that’s what a whole season is about. It’s not always that you have your set job. People come out and practice and perform better and that’s how it keeps changing. It keeps you on your toes.”If there is one thing that is constant for this Badger team, it is the leadership from their senior captains: Defender Aaron Nichols, goalie Vint and midfielder Jon Rzepka. Heading into this weekend’s games against Florida International and Florida Atlantic, it will be vital for them to continue to coach the younger guys on the team and push them in practice. With the first couple of games under their belt, Nichols is confident the team will only be getting better from this point forward.“I think it’s going to be a little bit easier,” Nichols said. “You get that first one out of the way. There’s a lot of nerves. You definitely could tell, especially in the game against UC-Irvine, because there’s a lot of young players and they’re not used to playing in bigger games. I think if anything we got better from it and I think we’ll be good going forward.”Vint added to this notion, saying, “we’re just going to keep building. We’re going to keep building off of our success on Friday against Santa Clara and keep going with it. Hopefully it’ll translate into something bigger and better this weekend.”
The Winter Classic is a premier event on the NHL’s calendar and this year’s version was no different. But for Dallas Stars forward Corey Perry, it was over in a mere two minutes and 44 seconds when he was ejected for elbowing the Nashville Predators’ Ryan Ellis in the head. Ellis (concussion) did not return to the game. Normally, when a player is ejected they go right to the tunnel and to their dressing room. Well, with the rink situated in the middle of the Cotton Bowl — the walk to the Stars’ locker room on Wednesday was a little longer than usual. So, of course, Twitter did what Twitter does and had some fun with Perry’s walk of shame.The Corey Perry walk of shame, paired with “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” by Green Day just hits different. pic.twitter.com/o5dn10LmXY— Hockey Daily 365 (@HockeyDaily365) January 1, 2020Corey Perry’s walk of shame, but I added the penalty song from The World Juniors pic.twitter.com/NwRj0QPEFM— Gongshow Gary 🇨🇦 (@SuckMyDeke) January 1, 2020I love the walk of shame for Corey Perry.
