Signs of Bullying

first_imgThe StopBullying.gov website defines bullying as “unwanted, aggressive behavior among school-age children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance.” Bullying can include making threats, spreading rumors, physically or verbally attacking someone, and excluding someone from a group on purpose.Has your child ever been the victim of a bully? According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, 28 percent of students ages 12 to 18 report that they’re bullied at school. Every day, the fear of bullying causes 160,000 students miss school.To combat bullying, you have to know that it is happening. Watch for warning signs:Changes in personality: Children who were outgoing and confident might become more reserved and self-conscious.A desire to stay home from school: Many parents report this as the first warning sign that bullying was a problem for their children.A drop in grades: Victims of bullying tend to get lower grades. The adverse psychological effects of bullying make them unable to focus in class.Nightmares or trouble sleeping: Anxiety from bullying can cause children to have problems sleeping at night or to wake up in the middle of the night with nightmares.Frequent headaches and stomachaches: Several studies of elementary and middle school children showed that victims of bullying were more likely to have frequent health complaints including headaches, fatigue, colds, sore throats and stomachaches.Unexplained injuries and/or lost or damaged property: Unexplained bruises or cuts is a sign that your child is being physically bullied. Missing or damaged property can mean that a bully is targeting your child’s property instead of hitting or attacking them.Nervousness when talking about computer or cell phone use: Many kids who are being cyberbullied are afraid their parents will take away their cell phones and/or their internet privileges if they know what’s happening.Self-destructive behavior: If your child seems less interested in their well-being or begins participating in dangerous or harmful activities, address the situation immediately and get professional help if necessary. Twenty percent of high school students say that they have seriously considered suicide in the last 12 months.There are ways that you can help prevent your child from becoming a target for bullies and stop bullying that has already started. One of the most important things you can do is to talk to your kids about bullying. Share experiences that you or other family members have had with bullying when you were younger. If your child opens up to you, praise him or her for being brave enough to discuss it and offer your unconditional love and support.Document each incident when bullying occurs so that you can build a case against the bully. Be sure to talk to your child’s school to find out its policies on how staff and teachers can address the situation. Find out what the bully is after — if it is lunch money or technological gadgets — and neutralize the situation by encouraging your child to pack a lunch or go to school gadget-free.Tell your child to buddy up with one or more friends at all times. Two or more kids are less likely to be picked on than a child who is alone. Remind your child to use the buddy system when on the school bus, in the bathroom or anywhere bullies may lurk. Talk to your child about what to do if they’re bullied. The best defense may be to remain calm, ignore hurtful remarks, tell the bully to stop and walk away. Bullies thrive by hurting others. A child who is not easily upset has a better chance of staying off a bully’s radar.Do not fight the battle against bullying alone. Sometimes it can be helpful to talk to the bully’s parents, usually in a neutral setting (like the school) where a school official (a counselor, teacher or principal) can mediate. If you choose to go this route, strive to remain as calm as possible when talking to the bully’s parents. Just present the facts and offer up any evidence you may have.For more resources to combat bullying, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services provides a robust bullying information website at StopBullying.gov.last_img read more

Cristiano Ronaldo on course to $1 billion in career earnings

first_imgLisbon: Cristiano Ronaldo is en route to becoming first football player and third sportsman overall to cross $1 billion in career earnings. This is despite the fact that Ronaldo has reportedly agreed to a wage cut of nearly 4 million Euros with his club Juventus so as to fight the coronavirus pandemic.According to Forbes, the cut hardly puts a dent on the Portuguese captain’s annual earnings and he had earned a staggering $109 million last year. A further 30 percent wage cut is on the cards with the Serie A frozen due to the pandemic but Ronaldo could still earn an estimated $46 million annual paycheck.The earnings he receives from his sponsorship deals and his CR7 underwear line could help take his earnings this year close to the $100 million mark again. This would help take him past the $1 billion in total earnings over an 18-year career. Ronaldo made his professional debut in 2002.The 35-year-old is currently in his hometown of Madeira as the football season in Italy and around the world grinded to a halt due to the coronavirus pandemic.Three of Ronaldo’s teammates at Juventus — Argentine star Paulo Dybala, Italian defender Daniele Rugani and France’s World Cup winning midfielder Blaise Matuidi have all tested positive for the novel virus that has taken nearly 65,000 around the world.

Errol Spence Jr., Shawn Porter to meet in welterweight title unification bout Sept. 28

first_imgPorter (30-2-1, 17 KOs) has been calling for a fight with Spence since he won the title by unanimous decision from Danny Garcia in September. Spence even got into the ring afterwards, and it appeared that would be the next direction for both fighters.”There haven’t been too many fights as a professional that I’ve been this excited about,” Porter said. “I was really excited about the Danny Garcia fight, and I’m really excited about this one. Ever since Spence got a belt, I really circled this fight on my calendar.”The victor is expected to face the winner of Saturday’s Pacquiao-Thurman fight. Quite arguably the most profound division in boxing is set to get a unified champion and the best in the weight class.At a Saturday afternoon press conference in Las Vegas hours before Manny Pacquiao fights Keith Thurman, it was announced that IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr. and WBC titlist Shawn Porter would lock horns on Saturday, Sept. 28 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.  Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a year”It’s going to be a very exciting fight,” Spence said in a press release. “Shawn is never in a boring fight, and I always entertain. It will be a ‘Fight of the Year’ type fight because our styles mesh.”Spence (25-0, 21 KOs), regarded by many as the division’s best, last fought in March at AT&T Stadium in Dallas and soundly defeated Mikey Garcia by unanimous decision. The pay-per-view card did a reported 325,000 buys helping establish Spence as a marquee attraction in the sport.The 29-year-old Texas native is a 2012 Olympian and looks to defend the belt for the fourth time after capturing the IBF strap from Kell Brook by 11th round knockout in May 2017. Spence invited Pacquiao into the ring and challenged him to a fight, but he chose to take on Thurman instead.last_img read more

FGCU savors its ride to NCAA tournament’s Sweet 16

first_imgCINDERELLA STORY–Florida Gulf Coast’s Sherwood Brown, center, celebrates with teammates after their 81-71 win over San Diego State in a third-round game in the NCAA college basketball tournament, Sunday, March 24, 2013, in Philadelphia. Florida Gulf Coast became the first No. 15 seed to make the Sweet 16. (AP Photo/Michael Perez) by Tim ReynoldsFORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) — Sherwood Brown only wanted a bagel.The Florida Gulf Coast star walked into a restaurant on campus Monday and was quickly surrounded. People wanted autographs. People wanted photos. People just wanted to yell words of encouragement.A school that opened a mere 16 years ago finds itself front-and-center in March Madness, one of only 16 college basketball teams left from a field of 68, hoping to win the NCAA national championship.“I had no idea it was going to be like this, but I’m loving it,” Brown said as he made his escape from the shop. “I feel like we’re getting a lot of America behind us. I guess you could say we’re a part of America’s team at this point.”And the Eagles spent the day savoring their moment.Lines in the campus bookstore snaked from one side to the other, more than 100 people waiting for the chance to pay for their FGCU shirts and hats. Phone lines were jammed by those seeking tickets for this weekend’s South Regional, and even the university president half-seriously wondered if he would be able to obtain what he needed. And as they arrived at classes, players were met with applause.“It’s so brand new,” Eagles coach Andy Enfield said Monday, as emails popped into his mailbox at a fairly dizzying rate. “No one knows — no one knew — what FGCU stood for, the letters. Now it puts our university in a national spotlight and rightly so, because this is a great place. It’s a young, vibrant university with just a lot of energy. I’ve been trying to tell that story to a lot of people.”The Eagles play Florida in the South Regional semifinals Friday night, two wins from a most-improbable trip to the Final Four. Seeded 15th in their region, FGCU knocked off both No. 2 Georgetown and No. 7 San Diego State in Philadelphia over the weekend to keep their season going.Enfield’s lone mistake so far in the NCAA tournament may have been what happened when he went to bed around 5:30 a.m. Monday, roughly two hours after the Eagles landed home in Fort Myers after punching their ticket to the regional semifinals.Before Enfield went to sleep, he forgot to silence his ringer. Suffice to say, he was awakened long before he wanted.“It’s part of the moment,” Enfield said. “We’re happy to sacrifice a little sleep for the success of our program.”Here’s maybe the best way to explain what’s happening right now with FGCU: In a state where the Gators are back in the regional semifinals, where the Miami Hurricanes (who lost to FGCU early this season) are still alive in the field and look very much like a title contender, and as the Miami Heat took a 26-game winning streak into their game at Orlando on Monday, it’s the Eagles who might be the best story.LeBron James picked them to win one game in his bracket. Not two, though.“Just a hunch,” the NBA’s reigning MVP said.The Eagles — 26-10 overall and 13-5 in the Atlantic Sun Conference — are starting their own tradition, since they have no real tradition yet. Of the 19 banners that sway in their gym to commemorate various accomplishments, the earliest entry on them is for a women’s volleyball trip to the NCAA Division II tournament in 2004.“You come from a small school like that, and everyone just kind of looks at us like a mid-week prep game. ‘All right, we’ll get our win mid-week and then we’ll get ready for conference play,’” said Chris Sale, a former FGCU pitcher now with the Chicago White Sox. “I don’t think that’s the way it’s going to be from here on out.”The school has about 11,300 students, half of whom come from the state’s southwest section. The campus — which includes a manmade lake and actual beach where students flock — sits on 760 acres of land donated by Ben Hill Griffin III. And that lends a certain irony to this Eagles-Gators matchup, given that Florida’s football team plays its home games in what everyone calls The Swamp but what officially is named for Ben Hill Griffin Jr.FGCU is in such infancy as a school that its oldest alumni probably have yet to turn 40.“I’ve been in higher ed for a long time, worked at several institutions, and I have not experienced anything like this phenomenon,” FGCU President Wilson Bradshaw said. “What has happened in the last three or four days has been exceptional. We’re getting, I’m getting, my staff members are getting emails and texts from all over the country, and it’s been very gratifying.”The interest has been overwhelming, at least to the servers that host the school’s athletic department website. It crashed twice Sunday night, and other university sites were seeing huge upticks in visits.Will Morse, a former soccer player at the school and now a graduate student, was waiting to buy a white sweatshirt at the bookstore. He hoped the investment of his time would lead to his parents making an investment of $200 for student tickets to this weekend’s games at Cowboys Stadium near Dallas.“It’s for my mom’s best friend. I don’t know,” Morse said. “They live in Colorado and they became fans overnight, and they wanted a sweatshirt for their birthday. So I’m the kid who’s trying to make sure my parents buy me tickets.”And the wait in those long lines lasted about as long as FGCU’s games have taken so far in this tournament.“I think everybody’s shocked, mostly,” said senior Kristi Hurson. “We went out to watch the game Friday and were all joking that this wasn’t going to be a big deal. And then it was.”Her friend and fellow shopper Erica Turczyn used three words to describe the mood on campus right now — crazy, nuts and chaos.“Professors canceled classes today, some of them,” Turczyn said. “I don’t know how anyone can focus right now.”Give FGCU guard Brett Comer some credit. He was trying to focus, anyway.Comer got three hours sleep before waking up Monday to hit his statistics class. As he arrived, his professor asked why he was there.“A lot of students didn’t seem to make it to class today,” Comer said. “But I was.”He won’t be at any classes later this week. The team’s annual banquet is scheduled for April 2. Someone in the lobby of the arena saw that sign Monday and asked if it would be canceled if the Eagles make the Final Four.A good question, one that no one even a few days ago would have imagined would have ever been uttered at FGCU.“Our heads have not gotten bigger,” Bradshaw said. “But we really are excited about the attention that we’re getting. And I’ve said this before: If it takes our very successful basketball team to get people to come to our website and learn more about Florida Gulf Coast University — and there is so much more — then I’m fine with that.”last_img read more

YouTube Gets Short(er) Links, Too

They’re not as short as the super-brief URLs users might see from bit.ly or is.gd because each one contains a unique ID for the video it links to. But this extra bit of information makes the URLs more useful for developers, too.While the resulting URLs aren’t significantly shorter than a regular YouTube link, users will have the added benefit of knowing exactly what kind of content they’re being redirected to, which isn’t always the case with many shortened URLs.Also, with the video ID as part of the short URL, writes YouTube Engineering Manager Vijay Karunamurthy, “developers can do interesting things like show you thumbnails, embed the video directly or track how a video is spreading in real time.”End users can shorten links manually simply by putting the video ID (the part of the YouTube URL that comes after the equals sign and before the ampersand, if there is one) after http://youtu.be/. For example, “http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1acVM7_rWw4” is the regular URL of an interview we did over the summer with a great startup advisor in Boulder, CO. The short version of that link would be “http://youtu.be/1acVM7_rWw4“.Or, for those copy-and-paste-averse folks among us, links will be automatically shortened when broadcast thought the site’s sharing mechanisms.last_img read more

Match moments in Bangladesh vs West Indies World Cup match

first_imgThe West Indies would be praising their luck for losing the toss against Bangladesh in their World Cup Group B match in Dhaka on Friday. Maybe they wanted Bangladesh to bat first and give their bowlers an opportunity to show their bowling prowess.And that’s what the West Indies bowlers got on with, counting the opposition scalps.Tamim Iqbal was dismissed on the third ball of the match to Kemar Roach. Roach soon increased his tally to finish with the figures of 6-0-19-3 and earned the Man-of-the-Match for his efforts.That first early wicket started a competition of sorts among Sulieman Benn and skipper Darren Sammy .While left-arm spinner Benn finished with figures of 4-18, Sammy claimed three scalps to wrap-up the Bangladesh batting on 58 in the 19th over after just 90 minutes of play.It took the Windies just 44 minutes and 12.2 over to reach the target. They crushed co-host Bangladesh by nine wickets.last_img read more

The Canadian media boss who swapped winning Oscars for kids TV

first_imgAdvertisement LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Facebook Most people who own a media empire talk loud and long, and make a big fuss of themselves, but not Michael Donovan.He is soft-spoken, thoughtful, and analytical. But he is very successful.Michael, a veteran of the film and TV industry, is the founder and boss of DHX Media. Login/Register With: Outside of the big Hollywood studies, the Canadian company is the world’s next largest owner and distributor of children’s TV programmes.Titles in DHX’s vast portfolio include Teletubbies, In the Night Garden, Bob the Builder, and Inspector Gadget.

Letter to the Editor Calls for Dr Rosie to be Named Natl

first_img Recommendation for National Hero, Dr. Rosita named as ideal Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppThe Making of a HeroIt has been about two months since the late Hon. Dr. Rosita B. Butterfield was laid to rest on the 5th February, 2015 following a State Funeral, and it is with great humility that I write this article after a long layoff, not as her Grandson, but an engaged Turks and Caicos Islander. I write to make the case, or should I say state the obvious, that Dr. Butterfield should be the Turks and Caicos Islands next National Hero. Many have had the thought but few have voiced it publicly, save for Dr. Lillian Boyce in her closing remarks at the memorial service held in Dr. Butterfield’s honor.Looking at this case, neither emotionally nor politically biased, but critically, there is no doubt that she is worthy of such an honor. By any measure, real, imagined or even yet to be imagined, she passes the litmus test. In my view the following are some of the qualities which should be displayed by a National Hero: Leadership; Integrity; Courage; Honor; Longevity; Service to country; and lastly he/she should be someone whom most people would themselves aspire to be like or have as a role model for their children. Dr. Butterfield possessed all of these qualities.As speaker of the House of Assembly, she ruled with integrity and impartiality, to the point where some of the more junior members of her very own party treated her with disdain at house sittings. She would end her tenure as speaker early rather than compromise her moral standing because of others. Also, under her leadership as chairman of the select committee on the Employment Bill from 1987 to 1988, she and her team would shape positive employment trends still having its impact today.Both locally and internationally, Dr. Butterfield represented the spirit of her country on numerous occasions, be it in Bermuda where she presented on “Migration and Immigration in the Turks and Caicos Islands” or in the House of Lords or the Isle of Man as a member of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association. Her Leadership qualities were well recognized and unquestionable.Want someone who illustrated their belief in education? She maximized all education opportunities afforded her and won numerous nursing awards such as the Surgeons’ Prize for the most efficient operating theatre surgical student nurse. She would not only use her time to develop education within the TCI but also to put her money where her mouth was by sponsoring our National Spelling Bee for many many years plus giving financial help to numerous families. Besides, Dr. Butterfield and her husband’s role in the development of Providenciales and wider TCI by extension, has been far reaching and can easily be verified.So much has already been written about Dr. Butterfield’s tremendous contribution in service to our country that I need not repeat it here. Click: www.sppdtci.com for more documentation. To emphasize my point about how special and rare this lady was, not even her husband, Dr. A. V. Butterfield, will be afforded a State Funeral which is reserved Heads of Government or a Speakers of the House, despite his equally devoted service in the development of our country. So I conclude with one question to all the members of the National Awards Committee: if not the Hon. Dr. Rosita Beatrice Missick-Butterfield, then whom?By: Jamell R. Robinson Recommended for you JAGS remembered again, 35-years after his tragic death Related Items:Dr. Rosita Butterfield, national hero Humble beginnings remember for Hon.
