It Takes a Village for Kids to Lose Weight | dailyRx | TGS Scholarship PE | Scoop.it

Obesity prevention programs for kids can be successful if community based

(dailyRx News) If it takes a village to raise a child, does it take a village to keep that child from becoming overweight? What happens when people in the community create a program aimed at children?

A recent study found that programs can be successful in combating obesity if they are large and comprehensive enough. This study found a focus on diet and physical activity showed improvements (reductions) in the children's body mass index (BMI) and body fat. Moreover, programs that integrated schools were more effective at preventing obesity

Talent gets you noticed, character gets you recruited | TGS Scholarship PE | Scoop.it
Talent will only get you so far. Your reputation is who people think you are; your character is who you are when you think no one is paying attention. Someone is always paying attention, and every recruiter has passed on a talented athlete who failed the character test. You must be the exception.

Jon J.'s curator insight, March 17, 2013 11:17 AM

A lack of evidence exists to support EPO doping provides an advantage to elite athletes.  Preliminary studies only indicate the probability of harm to users.  Does Lance deserve to keep his medals following this controversial report or is the intent to gain an unfair advantage enough to merit stripping his medals?

What Does Critical Thinking Mean in Education ?

What Does Critical Thinking Mean in Education ? | TGS Scholarship PE | Scoop.it

Critical thinking is an important skill in the  21st century learning. Education's overall goal is to produce students that will be able to think critically and not just take in things like a parrot. Of course there is a bunch of other important skills out there but this particular one stands out from the crowd. The thing about ttis skill is that while almost all  teachers agree upon its priority in education only few really know what it really means
