Social Media Helps Get Justice For Family And Abused Baby Boy : Culture. First Posted: Jun 08, 2016 11:10 AM EDT The internet may have its flaws but sometimes it does some good and in the case of 1-year-old Jacob Marbury it was instrumental in making a difference.

Social Media Helps Get Justice For Family And Abused Baby Boy : Culture

According to their post on Facebook, back in March, Joshua Marbury and his wife Alicia Quinney came home to find that the babysitter, Markell Deon Hilaire, who is a friend of the couple, had physically abused their son Jacob. No one would argue that an abused baby with visible bruises on their body isn't enough proof for an arrest but apparently it wasn't enough to charge Hilaire, at least in Oregon. In Oregon, a victim has to be able to say that pain was inflicted due to physical injury and since Jacob is an infant he can't do that so convicting Hilaire would be tough. Left without options, Jacob's parents decided to share their story on Facebook and asked people to share it with others so that they may spread the word on a national level by getting the attention of the media.

Life. Money. You.: Financial Literacy and Career Resources

The Internet is a free for all. There are no rules, anything goes, and I can say and do whatever I want, right? Wrong. There are dozens of hidden rules that you may or may not be aware of, and if you’re a recent grad looking for a job, these unspoken rules could very well be hurting you without you even knowing it. There are no specific hard and fast rules about social media (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube, Brazen Careerist, etc.), but there are expectations and ways to avoid being considered “some young kid” who doesn’t know what they’re talking about. Let’s first look at Facebook. Bullying on social networks. Most of the apps and social networking sites are for people aged 13 and over.

School clamps down on phones and Fitbits to ease body image worries. A girls’ school is banning wearable activity trackers and smartwatches because of concerns that pupils are skipping lunch if they fail to meet their calorie and exercise targets.

School clamps down on phones and Fitbits to ease body image worries

Teachers at Stroud high school in Gloucestershire fear the gadgets are exacerbating some girls’ worries about their body image. The deputy headteacher, Cindi Pride, said the school’s active and healthy pupils did not need to count calories and the number of steps they took each day. She said: “We are banning Fitbits and smartwatches. These monitor the number of calories burned and we found that some girls would monitor the number of steps they had taken and the number of calories they had used. If they didn’t feel they had taken enough steps in the morning, they wouldn’t eat lunch. “We don’t need our girls to be counting calories.

She said: “With young girls it’s very difficult to say if something will lead to an eating disorder or not; using things like Fitbits can just be a cool thing for them to do. Should mobile phones be banned in schools? No – they help independent study "You'll have someone's eye out with that" used to be the refrain of teachers in my day. In malevolent hands, a pencil, a rubber, even a piece of paper could become a lethal weapon in class, and that's before we got on to compasses and Bunsen burners. A mobile is the same: a potentially potent tool for learning but strangely feared in a school pupil's hand, where it is assumed to wreak havoc with concentration, unleash cyber bullying and surreptitiously video up teachers' skirts. But isn't it also madness when schools that cannot afford modern IT facilities ignore the powerful computers in every pupils' pocket? I was amazed when I visited my old school recently: having remarked how sorry I felt for teachers in the mobile era, several teachers immediately declared how useful they were in class.

Fifth of secondary school pupils 'wake almost every night to use social media' Concerns about young people’s dependence on social media and its impact on their wellbeing appear set to grow after a study found that one in five children wake up almost every night to either read or post messages. The research, carried out among secondary school children across Wales and published on Tuesday, surveyed more than 400 pupils in year 8 (aged 12 and 13) and 400 in year 10 (aged 14 and 15) to find out about their bedtime and sleeping patterns. Asked how often they wake at night to use social media, 22% of year 8 pupils, and 23% of year 10s, said “almost always”. A further 14% of the younger group and 15% of the older said they did so at least once a week. The report also looked at bedtimes and found that significant numbers were going to bed at midnight or later on school nights. While 17% of year 8s and 28% of year 10s said they went to bed at midnight or later, 6% of the younger group and 8% of the older claimed to go to bed after 1am.

Untitled. Parents warn about dangers of 'Blue Whale Challenge' SAN ANTONIO - SAN ANTONIO, Tx. - A San Antonio family is grieving the loss of their youngest child, a 15-year-old boy. His death, they said, was the result of a dangerous social media game we’ve exposed in the past on Eyewitness News. Isaiah Gonzalez’s parents say he showed no warning signs of sadness or depression. Isaiah was a normal high school student, on his way to becoming a sophomore. He comes from a military family. His father, Jorge Gonzalez, is a retired veteran. “I think to him, it was a joke,” Gonzalez said. That joke or challenge goes too far, and teens too often are falling victims to it.

Teenagers who spend hours on screens during their free time, either watching TV, playing computer games or surfing the internet, appear to achieve lower grades at GCSE, according to a study published on Friday. Research from Cambridge University suggests that 14-year-olds who spend an hour a day on screens during their leisure time score nine fewer points at GCSE when the sum of their grades is calculated – the equivalent of dropping two grades from a B to a D. Two extra hours results in 18 fewer points at GCSE. The length of time children spend watching screens is frequently a battleground in families, with parents increasingly powerless to control their children’s viewing – which has moved beyond TVs and computers, on to smart phones and iPads. 10 Advantages and Disadvantages of Social Media for Society - What are the positive effects of social networking on education? - Careerindia.
