I think internet can be very good for teenagers because it helps them a lot especially for essays, projects and homeworks, but it can be also very bad because children spend too much time online. I like internet because I can listen to songs onYouTube and I use British Councile:)
“We hope that the American Association of Pediatrics consider reducing its allowed TV viewing to one hour daily for young children and recommend that parents replace their children’s TV viewing time with opportunities for physical activity and educational activities,” wrote the study’s lead author, Dr. Mark DeBoer of the University of Virginia.
Pediatrics for Parents published a study done by The American Academy of Pediatrics titled “TV Watching and Social Skill” where they report “children with a TV in their bedroom have more sleep problems and less emotional reactivity” (N.A., par.
TV watching (especially late-night and violent shows) has been connected with poor sleep patterns in children. The emotional stress caused by the shows could be preventing children from getting to sleep and cause nightmares. In turn, abnormal sleep patterns can cause children to be less alert during the day, also contributing to poor school performance.
There appears to be a strong relationship between time spent in front of the television and being overweight. In fact, this past March the American Medical Association held a special briefing in New York City to alert parents about the well-proven link between TV viewing and obesity. This well-known "couch-potato" syndrome is probably the result of taking in too many calories (junk food -- which is advertised on television -- stuffed in unconciously as kids stare at the screen) and not burning up enough calories (sitting still rather than running around and playing). But the effects are reversible: Three studies have demonstrated that overweight children lost weight as they decreased their TV viewing.
Television has now become an important part of our daily lives and if you are a kid, it’s going to be very hard for you to stop watching it. TV has many advantages and many parents also use TV as a substitute baby sitter to keep their loved ones busy watching their favorite cartoons or TV shows. A common question arises in minds of many people and that is what positive and negative impact of TV has and how watching TV affects your child.
i think internet is useful for everyone. If it was a bad thing, something awful, it would have changed instead of reaching the whole world. Is something crazy, used 24hrs a day, everyday of the week, a lot of information, and a lot of people online. About teenagers who are addicted to games, that depends on each family. Parents could create rules, so no one would be in a bad position. And that also depends on the teenager's sense of what he or she can or can't do. It's impossible to live without internet in a society like nowdays, it's just so easy to make a research, work on a project... c'mon, does anyone here wants to spend hours and hours looking for few informations?
Children are televisions largest audience, as Morris shows, “Children aged two to five look at the TV tube on an average of 28.4 hours a week; those between the ages of six and eleven average 23.6 hours a week”.
Though, some researchers disagree with this statement and believe that there are other factors, besides television, which cause children to become violent.
Since the invention of television, adverse effects such as obesity and increased violence in the emulation of television acts has been displayed in children.
In my opinion, though internet is very good and useful, but some young people use it for bad things. Such as playing computer games and get addict with it. Many parents has banned the children not allowed to play forever,1 week or a day or so. But they never keep their word because, of course, parents love their kids, that is why after just a while,they let their children play AGAIN with their games, so really though, I think internet is useful with good children,and it is bad with bad children
In this article, “The Trouble with Television,” by the author Marie Winn, mentions that addiction of television is negative effects on children and families.
Determine the impact of nineteenth century British imperialism on twentieth century British political culture.
The former imperialistic British Empire of the nineteenth century has become the very tolerant, humble, non-slavery, and non-expansionist England of the twentieth century. During the nineteenth century, the British Empire followed a very aggressive trade policy with expansionistic ideals to try and spread Christian civilization upon all parts of the Earth. These arrogant policies often led to conflict with the natives of other lands because of the lack of respect shown by the British people to the natives. However, Britain did not use slavery because of the high production of trade which did not require many slaves. Due to the fact that the British military was needed at certain places throughout the empire at certain times, the rise of "responsible government, ? or government by the citizens of a colony, showed England that they could continue to have healthy economic and social relationships with other colonies without the use of force and direct control. After many encounters with many other cultures and ethnicities, the British people became quite tolerant, for they quickly learned that being tolerant and respectful was the only way to peacefully coexist with other ethnicities.
Although the British people felt that they were superior than other peoples, they also felt very righteous because they never chained and committed other people to slavery. For example, in 1794 British troops captured French-held sugar-producing islands in the Caribbean. Due to the overabundance of sugar on the British market, there was little need for slaves. In fact, the British Royal Navy went to great lengths to stop the slave trade to the west from Africa. Because England was never involved in slavery or the slave trade, they never developed any form of violent racism that other countries possessed.
