Iceland knows how to stop teen substance abuse but the rest of the world isn’t listening (2017, mosaicscience)

In Iceland, teenage smoking, drinking and drug use have been radically cut in the past 20 years. Emma Young finds out how they did it, and why other countries won’t follow suit.

O YES

Netherlands

The Dutch feast of Saint Nicholas is about giving, for "it is in giving that we receive." The fun is in trying to surprise people, to tease in a well-meaning way, to make a good joke, to produce a rollicking rhyme. The gift itself is just a bonus, as the fun is in the doing.

“The idea that rising blood pressure is a result of aging is a widely held belief in cardiology, but our findings add to evidence that rising blood pressure may be an avoidable consequence of Western diet and lifestyle rather than aging itself,”

Study of Two Tribes Sheds Light on Role of Western-Influenced Diet in Blood Pressure

Image/photoYanomami woman and her child at Homoxi, Brasil


Tribe with no Western dietary influences had no increase in blood pressure with advancing age, while neighboring tribe with modest exposure to Western diet, including processed foods, did have an increase

“This age-related rise in blood pressure begins in early childhood—which suggests that early childhood may be a ‘window of opportunity’ for lifestyle interventions to prevent later rises in blood pressure,” Mueller says.

To put these findings in context, in the U.S. systolic blood pressure rises by about 1.5 mm Hg and 1.9 mm Hg per year among boys and girls, respectively, and 0.6 mm Hg per year among adults.

Learning music early can make your child a better reader (2018, English version)

Aprender música enseña a leer
Música, lenguaje, distintos armónicos, un solo acorde...

La formación musical en los primeros años de escolarización influye positivamente en la capacidad lectora del alumno.


Aprender música enseña a leer

La neurociencia ha encontrado una clara relación entre la música y la adquisición del lenguaje. Sin rodeos: aprender música en los primeros años de la escolarización puede ayudar a que los niños aprendan a leer.

Ambas actividades comparten una red superpuesta en el cerebro. Desde una perspectiva evolutiva, el cerebro humano desarrolló la adquisición de la música mucho antes que la del lenguaje y luego usó esa habilidad para crear y aprender el lenguaje.

Al nacer, los bebés entienden el lenguaje como si fuera música. Responden al ritmo y a la melodía del lenguaje antes de comprender qué significan las palabras.

La mente-cavalletta non trattiene perché non fa esperienza, ma ne riceve solo l’apparenza emotiva: rimane nell’interminabile corridoio digitale, osservando tutte le porte senza aprirne realmente nessuna. I dispositivi spesso ci rendono «in-disponibili» all’esperienza: la mano piena non può ricevere né afferrare altro.
Da dove cominciare per restituire ai ragazzi la gioia dell’esperienza? Non basta aprire a forza la loro mano e limitare l’uso degli schermi, bisogna integrarli.

A bit dated, but interesting research
The secondary takeawy from this is that we should beware studies that use "self reporting".  It's interesting how we convince ourselves of things that should be obviously untrue.

A new study shows that students learn way more effectively from print textbooks than screens

Students told researchers they preferred and performed better when reading on screens. But their actual performance tended to suffer.

«Sta a me scegliere: scappare dalla vita e annientarmi definitivamente perché non sono in grado di essere perfetta da subito, senza fatica e fallimenti, o affrontare la vita a modo mio». Così scriveva, nei suoi Diari, la grande poetessa americana Sylvia Plath nel 1957.

A Sylvia (2018, Alessandro D'Avenia)

Da quando insegno ho visto aumentare nei ragazzi fenomeni distruttivi (dipendenze, disturbi dell’alimentazione, suicidi…). Che cosa cercano di dirci? Si rinuncia alla vita quando, carenti di amore profondo e relazioni sane, si fugge da un io disintegrato e si diventa preda di illusioni che promettono unità interiore: ogni dipendenza o tentativo di controllo ossessivo sono richieste di amore, mal riposto, mal cercato.

Abbiamo bisogno di una verità che ci venga incontro con tenerezza, che ci abbracci anche quando siamo insufficienti, anzi proprio quando e perché lo siamo. La fragilità accettata, e quindi prima accolta e amata da chi ci dà la vita e ci educa, è la fessura attraverso cui l’amore entra e diventa fondamento, perché solo l’amore dà all’io le radici per slanciarsi.

Il letto da rifare oggi è inventare gesti e parole, semplici ma impegnativi, come dire gratuitamente a un alunno: «È un onore averti in classe, sono fortunato»; o abbracciare più spesso un figlio con un: «Non temere, vai bene così, qualsiasi cosa accada o tu faccia, continuerai ad avere il mio amore».
  
Testo chiaro e tempestivo. Grazie per la condivisione!
