Telly in the children’s bedroom not a good idea, says new report.

Following the Christmas period, many children’s bedrooms may look like mini digital hubs, with all sorts of new televisions, tablets, laptops and smartphones in the possession of children. The debate over whether or not to have televisions in a child’s bedroom is often a personal one, with some parents deciding to allow televisions albeit with strict limits.

New research due out this month by the Pennington Biomedical Research Centre in the US has found, perhaps not surprisingly, that having a bedroom television could have a far greater impact on health and obesity levels among children than previously thought…

Before us, there were people who had already put forth their all so that we may live in a world filled with more peace and less hatred. And though evil still lives, these people knocked a huge dent in our fight for equality. Some of these men, women, and even children paid the ultimate price for their freedom, the freedom of their generation, and the freedom of generations to come. Among the countless humans of all races and creeds that worked tirelessly for equality was a man who was determined to make a change in a non-violent way. Even though evil took Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. away, his message was one of peace, togetherness, and service. This is a message that should never be forgotten…

…Dr. King spoke of togetherness and service, two things that hardly come around unless something bad happens. Why must evil come in order for good to come about? When will we begin to serve just because it’s the right thing to do?…

Females. Can’t live with ’em, can’t sustain the human race without ’em. But! You can write books about them, so they’re not entirely without merit. Just a week into the new year and two wellpublicised books – Leslie C Bell’s Hard to Get and Steve Biddulph’s Raising Girls – are about to be published, telling us what to do about these young female-type people who are, they say, deeply, deeply troubled, beset on all sides by confused cultural messages, promiscuity and eating disorders (“Lions and tigers and bears – oh my!”)…

Scientists across the world and in Africa are making vast advances on vaccinations and treatments for diseases like malaria and tuberculosis.

The University of Cape Town’s Science Department is working on a single-dose cure for malaria that kills the parasite instantly.

It is due to complete trials of the aminopyridine-class drug in late 2013.
