the data isn`t in yet? here`s a flash...........that data never went out. everyone but a school teacher, a child psychologist and a government diet consultant or a doctor knows that the more you force kids to sit for extended periods of time and bore the shit out of them the more likely they are to to go home and sit and watch t.v. and eat..............like thier fat parents that went to the same school 25 years before them.

Instead of doing so much, if they take the kids to a lovely park or right in the thick of nature and then teach them, that would be far far better.

I'd rather sit among tall trees, chirping birds, falling leaves and grass to learn.

micro-management. the constant breaking things into bits to analyse. and then forgetting how the bits go back together.

Dr? I am unable to connect your reply to my original comment or the blog post.

the bureaucrats who put together educational policy and daft programs designed to delay onset obesity are dealing with a bit of the problem with abit of a solution. you are able to deal with the problem with the whole of the child by taking them out of the whole problem and into the solution. the bureaucrat can`t see thier system as the problem.

Dr? another soccer fan :-)

Brazil's first man in space, Marcos C. Pontes, will stay at the international space station for nine days before returning to Earth on April 9.

Besides the flag, Pontes said he would take up a jersey for his soccer-mad nation, which has won the quadrennial international championship five times. With optimism, he predicted it would honor the "six-time champions of the world, the Brazilian football team.
