Teens and concussions

Concussion and children, not a good combination, but it happens. This page talks about avoiding the boredom that comes with the rest while in concussion recovery, your continued good health may depend upon it stay away from blows to the head in sports. The United States of America concussion rates are high in sports; statistics show that there was a 62 percent increase over the last decade in children under the age of 19 suffering serious head injuries while playing sports and engaging in other physical activities. Teenagers are suffering more from concussions and brain disease then an adult or child.
To start off, as most people know concussion talk in the sports media is very high. High school-age athletes are more likely than younger kids to have sports-related concussions, but the rate of such injuries in both groups is on the rise, a new U.S. study suggests. From 1997 to 2007, emergency department visits for concussion in kids aged eight to 13 playing organized sports doubled, and the number of visits increased by more than 200 percent in older teens. (American Academy of Pediatrics). According toThe Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that teens have higher risk of getting a concussion. Currently, the only way we can lower these rates is if teens don’t start football at a young age.
In addition, American sports have shown that head injuries such as concussions are common for teens to get. Teenagers who suffer a concussion are more sensitive than adults or children to its aftereffects. The number for 14 to 19-year-olds jumped to 22,000 in 2007 from 7,000 in 1997; and for 8- to 13-year-olds it went to 8,000 from 3,800. And about half the injuries were sports-related.

..."Read-Only Participants: A Case for Student Communication in Online Classes" In the article titled "Read-only participants; a case for student communication in online classes" impairs the importance of community and communication in online courses. It also discusses the reason students succeed or fail in online classes. To discover the concerns listed above, a study of eight weeks was conducted on students. The study monitored classroom activity as well as communication among students coming from diverse backgrounds. Such examples are geographical location, race, gender and age. The study resulted in both success and failure. Both were discovered and documented. With the results of success the following findings were noted: firstly online courses that had discussions where students and teachers would interact had a positive effect on introverted individuals. In a traditional classroom these students would have participated less but now found a voice in the virtual classroom. Secondly, the skills necessary in an online classroom can improve higher order thinking as well as critical thinking. This was done by the discussion forums and posts that required students to apply and create learned knowledge. Thirdly, a professor that had great involvement with his class became a positive feature by providing encouragement and support through posts. As a result of the instructors involvement students were eager to become more involved in the discussions. In addition to......

Read to Me

...READ TO ME  Why a love of reading is so important in learning to read.  How to instill children's love for reading, as a teacher or parent (what are your suggestions or ideas for promoting children's motivation of reading)? Overview: The Read to Me Project is targeted at students in pre-school. This program is structured to help in the development of reading skills in young children before kindergarten. By encouraging young children to read you are opening up a gateway to a promising future. As a parent and a teacher you know how important reading is. Teaching reading to young children has too many benefits to list but here’s a few: * Reading encourages academic excellence * Language Skills are improved * Communication skills are increased The issue with learning how to read is that it can be complex to those who have no interest or those who cannot grasp the concept at hand. It is a known fact that everyone learns in a different way. Per Shomshak, L., (2004) some students learn in the following styles: THREE BASIC LEARNING STYLES 1. Auditory learners - like to hear their information, talk about and rehash what they hear, love to read aloud and hear stories. 2. Visual learners - want to see everything, look at pictures, understand better by seeing than hearing, like writing. 3. Kinesthetic learners - like hands-on experience, doing, touching, activity, concrete demonstrations. So how can we instill the love of reading into your minds? This...

No Read, No Write

...NO READ, NO WRITE As an Atenean, I am given life on a sliver platter. We are all known for a reality where our unlimited wants and needs are given to us in a blink of an eye. Despondently, this reality isn’t shared by all of the Filipino people. The luxuries of life we have are near impossible for others, just like the family in the picture. Children like the little girl should be in school, not in the streets. In 2010, Philippines ranks 134th in the world’s poorest and 15 million Filipinos are illiterate. That’s almost 15% of the entire Filipino population, enough to populate the entire National Capital Region. One out of six school-age Filipino children is not enrolled, figures from the Department of Education (DepEd) and the National Statistical Coordination Board (NSCB) Imagine the country’s capital, a whole region, made up of only illiterate citizens, is our country this oblivious to the educational needs of the Filipino people? Teacher should be given incentives in order to compensate for the hours of work put into their efforts to teach and environments should be provided which would make learning an enjoyable experience for both teacher and student. In other words, the government needs to use the budget to build the foundation of our nation’s education, not to squander for personal interests. . The recently implemented K-12 curriculum has been drastically applied in both private and public schools. Teachers are currently undergoing trainings and...

Read N Go

...The company’s advertisement strategy would be to ensure that the message is spread on how easy and convenient it is to use the “Read N Go”. The read and go is in competition with leapfrog so the advertisement has to show that we offer something better than the leapfrog company so that the customers would choose my console over the leapfrog game console. The leapfrog game console is already well known so the “Read N Go” console will have to be advertised as a two-sided argument. According to text “a two-sided argument is when a company understands that their competitor’s brand dominates in some manner or that your brand has some weakness, you might as well acknowledge the fact and then explain why your brand is superior nevertheless.” I choose this approach because leapfrog has already establish the market on reading and teaching reading skills with a game console but the “Read N Go” console will work closely with the school system to ensure that your child will be able to use this game to improve reading lexile score in school. Advertising is important so that the customers can get a quick glance at what the product will do for them before they purchase the product. Using the two-sided argument will work well with my marketing goal because as part of the marketing strategy is to compare the console to the leapfrog game console and to let the consumers know what the “Read N Go” has to offer over the leapfrog game console.

... company’s direction. 6 Volkswagen do Brasil: Driving Strategy with the Balanced Scorecard 111-049 Among the more successful communication initiatives was an internal contest to choose a mascot that could symbolize and communicate the new strategy. The winning entry led to Giga, a 1 meter tall sympathetic and futurist robotic character, evocative of the 1960’s VW Beetle (see picture aside14). Giga appeared at events to shake hands and ask questions to employees about the strategy. He appeared on the internal Intranet portal, and was featured in widely-read comic strips (see Exhibit 7) in the VWB internal newspaper. One manufacturing cell leader had recently asked for a board game in which employees could advance their tokens by correctly answering questions about the strategy map. Davies and his group helped design and produce this board game, which would be deployed soon. Davies also introduced a new communications tool, an interactive role play game based on a customized Learning Map, a visual representation of VWB’s history, current competitive environment, and strategy (see Exhibit 8). During a 90 minute session with a group of 10 employees, a facilitator led a training exercise on how to win a rally whose endpoint was achieving the leading market position in Brazil.

Why Read the Bible

...Question: "Why should we read the Bible / study the Bible?" Answer: We should read and study the Bible because it is God's Word to us. The Bible is literally "God-breathed" (2 Timothy 3:16). In other words, it is God's very words to us. There are so many questions that philosophers have asked that God answers for us in Scripture. What is the purpose to life? Where did I come from? Is there life after death? How do I get to heaven? Why is the world full of evil? Why do I struggle to do good? In addition to these "big" questions, the Bible gives much practical advice in areas such as: What do I look for in a mate? How can I have a successful marriage? How can I be a good friend? How can I be a good parent? What is success and how do I achieve it? How can I change? What really matters in life? How can I live so that I do not look back with regret? How can I handle the unfair circumstances and bad events of life victoriously? We should read and study the Bible because it is totally reliable and without error. The Bible is unique among so-called "holy" books in that it does not merely give moral teaching and say, "Trust me." Rather, we have the ability to test it by checking the hundreds of detailed prophecies that it makes, by checking the historical accounts it records, and by checking the scientific facts it relates. Those who say the Bible has errors have their ears closed to the truth. Jesus once asked which is easier to say, "Your sins are forgiven you," or "Rise...
