Sleep helps people learn complicated tasks


Sleep helps people learn complicated tasks (11/21/2008):
"Sleep helps the mind learn complicated tasks and helps people recover learning they otherwise thought they had forgotten over the course of a day, research at the University of Chicago shows.

Using a test that involved learning to play video games, researchers showed for the first time that people who had 'forgotten' how to perform a complex task 12 hours after training found that those abilities were restored after a night's sleep.

'Sleep consolidated learning by restoring what was lost over the course of a day following training and by protecting what was learned against subsequent loss,' said Howard Nusbaum, Professor of Psychology at the University of Chicago, and a researcher in the study. 'These findings suggest that sleep has an important role in learning generalized skills in stabilizing and protecting memory.'"

Myth: Children need to be wrapped in cotton wool to keep them safe


The reality

Health and safety law is often used as an excuse to stop children taking part in exciting activities, but well-managed risk is good for them. It engages their imagination, helps them learn and even teaches them to manage risks for themselves in the future. They won’t understand about risk if they’re wrapped in cotton wool.

Risk itself won’t damage children, but ill-managed and overprotective actions could!

A Christmas tree tradition has been chopped after town councillors were told they could no longer climb ladders to erect festive decorations.

In the past they and a contractor have put up around 60 trees in Llandovery, Carmarthenshire, on ledges over shop fronts and above the market hall.

Study shows difficult to read instructions decrease motivation


It is not surprising that people are more willing to participate in a task if it does not require too much effort. What is interesting, however, is the way we determine just how easy a task will be and therefore, how motivated we are to complete it. New research from University of Michigan psychologists Hyunjin Song and Norbert Schwarz investigates how thinking about a task (i.e., how complex or simple it will be) affects our attitude toward the task itself.

Dooking for apples banned as unhygienic - Scotsman.com News


Dooking for apples banned as unhygienic - Scotsman.com News: "Dooking for apples banned as unhygienic

Published Date: 02 November 2008
By David Leask
FOR centuries it has been at the core of all good Halloween parties.
But dooking for apples has been watered down after claims it is unhygienic.

Pupils at schools across Scotland celebrated Halloween with parties last week, but many did so without getting so much as their fringes wet.

Many primary heads have now banned the ancient game – consigning it to the same 'nanny state' bin as conkers, ice-sliding and photographs at nativity plays. Instead, an increasing number of children are told to prong apples with forks."
