Oz school kids told ‘to stand up in class’ to beat obesity epidemic

Melbourne, Sept 7 (ANI): Victorian schools are introducing some radical measures to beat childhood obesity.

More activity breaks in between classes is one idea.

“We are modifying academic lessons to get them moving more. Sitting all day long isn”t normal for kids,” the Herald Sun quoted Prof Jo Salmon as saying.

They are even assigning homework tasks such as going for a walk with mum and dad, and are being urged to reduce their time in front of the TV.

The Education Department and Deakin University have taken the initiative.

“It”s not about being a TV Nazi, but resetting and changing some habits such as kids watching whatever is on TV rather than actively choosing programs they want to watch,” Salmon added.

Children are given four 30-minute TV tokens each day and if they attempt to watch more, the TV turns off using smart card technology.

Salmon said the school-based program, involving standing-up lessons, “was not about kids running amok in class, but getting them moving instead of sitting during the day”.

Angela Conway, policy consultant from Pro-family Perspectives, said she liked the idea of kids standing in some classes.

“It”s good to educate and encourage, but schools should not prescribe what families do in private,” she cautioned. (ANI)

About Kerala University

One of the first 16 Universities in India, the University of Kerala was founded as the University of Travancore in the erstwhile princely state of Travancore (now southern part of Kerala and some neighbouring parts of state of Tamilnadu) in 1937. During the 7 decades since the University of Kerala grew and shrunk physically and transformed itself in many ways. It is difficult to summarise what the Kerala University is in a brief space. Modernity Vs new tech etc

The earliest origins of the University may be traced back to two institutions of modern learning in Kerala, the University College, Thiruvananthapuram and the Trivandrum Observatory. The University College was initially founded as the Maharaja’s Free School by Maharaja Swathi Thirunal in 1834, with Mr John Roberts. A Christian Missonary as Headmaster, and soon grew into a college in 1866, affiliated to the Madras University. When the University of Travancore was founded, the Departments of the college became the University Departments, only to switch back again when the transformation to University of Kerala happened in 1957. The University College still retains its connection with the University as an affiliated college. The Trivandrum Observatory was founded in 1838 and had an internationally reputed scientist, John Caldecott FRS as its first Director. It became a part of the Travancore University, but for some time was administered as a independent government institution. It is now the oldest institution under the Kerala University.

The University of Travancore was established in 1937 by a promulgation of the Maharajah of Travancore, Sri Chithira Thirunal Balarama Varma who was also the first Chancellor of the University. Sir C. P Ramaswamy Ayyar, the then Diwan (Prime minister) of the State was the first Vice-Chancellor. He was an eminent scholar and an able administrator.  It is said the Government made an unsuccessful attempt to invite Albert Einstein to be the first Vice-Chancellor. The University was modelled after the best Universities of the United Kingdom, and even today retains some of these features. The affiliating system of the University however evolved to be different from the college system in British Universities.

Hindus & Jews want immediate end to segregation of Roma children in Slovakia

Nevada (US), Sept 4 (ANI): Hindus and Jews have expressed concern at the reported continual segregation of Roma (Gypsy) children in Slovakia schools.

Noted Hindu statesman Rajan Zed and Rabbi Jonathan B. Freirich, prominent Jewish leader in Nevada and California in USA; in a joint statement in Nevada today, said that according to reports, this segregation of Roma pupils had resulted in inferior quality education and limiting success for them, thus causing them to fall into poverty.

Sometimes, Roma children reportedly ended up in classes/schools specially created for children with mental disabilities.

Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, and Rabbi Freirich, further said that segregation practices with anti-Roma attitudes should not have any place in 21st century Europe and should immediately go. All children were equal and should mix with each other for better future societies of Slovakia and Europe. All children should have right to education without any discriminatory practices to become healthy members of the society.

Rajan Zed and Jonathan Freirich argued that Roma children should be accorded equal opportunities and avenues of full participation in Slovak life. Segregation in Slovakia was simply immoral and unacceptable and European Union should immediately act to end this discriminatory practice and ensure equality in education.

Zed and Rabbi Freirich stressed that “Tatra Tiger”, one of the fastest growing economies and country of Juraj Jánošík, should “wholeheartedly” work on improving educational attainments of Roma children. Ivan Gašparoviè is President and Robert Fico is the Prime Minister of Slovakia. (ANI)

Cambridge University academics to probe ”Twilight” zone of teenage mind

London, Sep 4 (ANI): Wondering why teenagers are hooked to Vampire novels and Harry Potter? The answer may not be too far as Cambridge University (CU) academics are set to have a meeting to understand this.

CU is hosting a conference looking at how the Twilight series of romantic vampire novels and similar books and films affect the brains of teenagers.

Scientists, authors and education experts will analyse whether there are “twilight zones” in the teenage brain that are affected by the material.

“Research is going on not just here but around the world into neuroscience and literature; how the teenage brain responds to narrative in the printed word, computer games, media and social media. These things can be the most important part of a teenager”s life,” the Daily Telegraph quoted Maria Nikolajeva, a professor of education at the university, and the organizer as saying.

“Teenagers cannot really make decisions in the same way adults can. Synapses in their brains are breaking and reforming and the chemistry of the brain is changing. So there is a social responsibility that goes with this.

“However, with most of the books and films aimed at teenagers, you find there is always some hope,” she added. (ANI)

Organic farms have higher quality fruit, better soil

Washington, Sep 3 (ANI): Compared to the conventional farms, organic ones produce more flavourful and nutritious strawberries while leaving the soil healthier and more genetically diverse, says a new study.

“Our findings have global implications and advance what we know about the sustainability benefits of organic farming systems,” said John Reganold of Washington State University.

“We also show you can have high quality, healthy produce without resorting to an arsenal of pesticides,” he said.

The study analysed 31 chemical and biological soil properties, soil DNA, and the taste, nutrition and quality of three strawberry varieties on more than two dozen commercial fields-13 conventional and 13 organic.

All the farms in the current study were in California, home to 90 percent of the nation”s strawberries and the center of an ongoing debate about the use of soil fumigants.

Conventional farms in the study used the ozone-depleting methyl bromide, which is slated to be replaced by the highly toxic methyl iodide over the protests of health advocates and more than 50 Nobel laureates and members of the National Academy of Sciences.

The study found that organic strawberries had significantly higher antioxidant activity and concentrations of ascorbic acid and phenolic compounds.

It has also hinted that organic strawberries had longer shelf life and more dry matter, or, “more strawberry in the strawberry.”

The researchers also found the organic soils excelled in a variety of key chemical and biological properties, including carbon sequestration, nitrogen, microbial biomass, enzyme activities, and micronutrients.

DNA analysis found the organically managed soils had dramatically more total and unique genes and greater genetic diversity, important measures of the soil”s resilience to stress and ability to carry out essential processes.

The findings were published in an online journal, PLoS ONE. (ANI)

Exercise capacity is an inherited trait

Washington, Sep 2 (ANI): Voluntary activity, such as daily exercise, is a highly heritable trait that can be passed down genetically to successive generations, according to biologists at the University of California, Riverside.

While working on mice in the lab, they found that activity level can be enhanced with “selective breeding” – the process of breeding plants and animals for particular genetic traits.

Their experiments showed that mice that were bred to be high runners produced high-running offspring, indicating that the offspring had inherited the trait for activity.

“Our findings have implications for human health. Down the road people could be treated pharmacologically for low activity levels through drugs that targeted specific genes that promote activity. Pharmacological interventions in the future could make it more pleasurable for people to engage in voluntary exercise. Such interventions could also make it less comfortable for people to sit still for long periods of time,” said Theodore Garland Jr., a professor of biology, whose laboratory conducted the multi-year research.

In humans, activity levels vary widely from couch-potato-style inactivity to highly active athletic endeavours.

“We have a huge epidemic of obesity in Western society, and yet we have little understanding of what determines variation among individuals for voluntary exercise levels,” said Garland.

The study is an example of an “experimental evolution” approach applied rigorously to a problem of biomedical relevance.

Although this approach is common with microbial systems and fruit flies, it has rarely been applied to vertebrates due to their longer generation times and greater costs of maintenance.

The results of such studies can inform biologists about fundamental evolutionary processes as well as “how organisms work” in a way that may lead to new therapeutic strategies.

The study appears in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B. (ANI)

Teacher conveys apology for using racial slurs against Malay Indian students

George Town (Malaysia), Sep.2 (ANI): A teacher of a secondary school in Malaysia’s Bukit Jambul area has issued an apology for using racial slurs and vulgar words against five Malay Indian students.

The parents of the students, who attended a two-hour meeting with the school’s senior assistant and representatives of the Parent-Teacher Association here yesterday, have accepted the apology, though the teacher was not present, The Star reports.

A senior teacher tendered the apology on the errant teacher”s part.

It was reported on August 31 that the teacher had uttered foul language and made derogatory remarks to five students during a pre-National Day celebration at the school last Thursday.

He was upset because the students were said to have worn their jippa, kurta and cheongsam with jeans instead of the complete traditional outfits.

State Education Department director Ibrahim Mohamad said the teacher was issued a memo. (ANI)
