Data shows link between deprivation and child development (From HeraldScotland)
Children from the poorest parts of Scotland are more than twice as likely to have concerns recorded about their development.

New figures show more than a quarter (26%) of children from the most deprived areas had at least one developmental concern identified during reviews offered to every child reaching 27 months.

That compares to just one in nine (11%) for children living in the most affluent parts of the country in 2015/16.

The Minds of Teenage Girls
The mercurial behaviour of teenage girls is often dismissed as the result of hormones. But is it? In her new book, "Untangled: Guiding Teenage Girls Through the Seven Transitions Into Adulthood," psychotherapist Lisa Damour uses neuroscience to explain what's happening in the brain during this time of growth and transition. // [...] 21:30 depression in kids/adolescence is not same, it is irritability and crankyness, following them everywhere they go - it's not typical. [...] high functioning kids come from warm places with structure.

The PTSD brains of children and soldiers - BBC News

Heads warn over pupils' untreated mental health issues - BBC News
Children's untreated mental health issues could spiral into psychiatric problems later in life unless more is done in schools, say head teachers. The National Association of Head Teachers says with a fifth of children having a mental health problem before age 11, it is a key concern. A snapshot survey of 1,455 English heads suggests two-thirds of primary schools cannot deal with such issues. The government says it has ring-fenced £1.4bn for children's mental health. //&!

Teacher shortages in England, spending watchdog confirms - BBC News
Teacher shortages in England are growing and the government has missed recruitment targets for four years, the official spending watchdog has said. It means 28% of secondary physics lessons are taught by teachers with no more than an A-level in the subject, the National Audit Office report says. Ministers have a "weak understanding" of local teacher shortages, it adds. The government said overall teacher numbers had risen and blamed unions for "talking down" the profession. While the overall number of teachers has kept pace with rising pupil numbers, teacher shortages are growing, particularly in poorer areas and at secondary level, according to the authors. [...] "Unless government radically tackles the pay, workload and excessive accountability that teachers currently suffer, this is a situation that will get increasingly worse," said Ms Blower. //&! bit.ly/1LfqZNB

He is expected to announce prison governors will be given more say over how jails spend their money. [ BUT NOT MORE MONEY AS A WHOLE TO PREVENT, INTERVENE, REINTEGRATE and this was not in the Manifesto ] [...] "Not everyone shows remorse and not everyone seeks redemption. "But I also strongly believe that we must offer chances to change; that for those trying hard to turn themselves around, we should offer hope; that in a compassionate country, we should help those who've made mistakes to find their way back onto the right path." [...] "Prisons are currently violent and overcrowded. As such, they fail everyone: victims, the public, staff and prisoners themselves. [...] outgoing chief inspector of prisons in England and Wales said prisons were "as bad as you could possibly imagine". [...] conditions in adult prisons had deteriorated over the past five years.

Cortisol levels in children's hair may reveal future mental health risk | Society | The Guardian
Australian researchers found the greater number of traumatic events a child had experienced, the higher the hair cortisol concentrations. Hair samples may help determine the risk of a child developing mental and other chronic illnesses later in their life, research led by the University of Melbourne has found. [...] It suggests hair cortisol levels may provide a marker of trauma exposure in children and identify those at risk of developing psychosocial and behavioural problems, and who may need medical and psychological support, leader of the study and a fellow in child and adolescent mental health at the University of Melbourne, Dr Julian Simmons, said.

Nesquik bunny ad banned over ‘great start to the day’ claim | Media | The Guardian
Use of cartoon rabbit and suggestion that chocolate drink was a suitable regular breakfast option encouraged poor nutritional habits in children, says ASA [...] The Children’s Food Campaign complained to the Advertising Standards Authority that the promotion, particularly the use of the bunny character and the “great start” claim, encouraged poor nutritional habits in children. Nestlé denied the accusation, saying the bunny was not the main focus of the ad and it had been “carefully designed to convey a physically active, energetic character who could promote a healthy lifestyle”. [...] “Because the product was high in added sugar, we considered that the suggestion that Nesquik was a suitable regular breakfast option for children encouraged poor nutritional habits in children and the ad therefore should not have appeared at all,” said the ASA.

From social media to the catwalk, is fantasy beauty failing young women? | Life and style | The Guardian
The world of vloggers and YouTubers has created a perverse, homogenised “beauty” with no diversity or reality. Jane Cunningham, journalist [...] The concept of appearance as a commodity to be valued has filtered from Hollywood to family homes across the UK. A 2013 attitudes survey by the Guide Association finding that 87% of girls aged 11-21 believe women are judged more on their appearance than their ability. The dissatisfaction resulting from the oft-perpetuated narrow vision of a beauty ideal can lead to low self-esteem – and worse. Jane Cunningham, the journalist behind Britishbeautyblogger.com, says young girls come to her in tears, feeling hopeless and helpless, unable to reconcile their own appearance with what they believe to be beautiful.

Leslie Jamison: confessional writing is not self-indulgent | Books | The Guardian
[ no judgement. empathy. compassion. see Dr Gabor Mate Rich Roll Podcast #189 ] When they confessed things to me, these strangers were offering something but they were also asking for something. They were asking for the subject of the book itself: empathy. They wanted an enactment of its central principle, its primary call: to pay attention. Even when they didn't say they wanted this, I felt I owed it to them. The professor struggling with chronic headaches wasn't asking for anything, she was just offering a response: "I find the thing that wears you down the most is pain. To wake up and as you gain consciousness to feel the pain again, and wanting it to not be so, but yet it is, and having to face that reality hundreds, in my case thousands, of days in a row. It transforms you and disconnects you from everyone, even those who want to understand."

At the same time, referrals to community mental health teams, which help people avoid being admitted to hospital, have risen nearly 20%. Care minister Norman Lamb said budgets were "not the full picture". He added: "Mental health care is given through a range of services including the voluntary sector."

One-fifth of youngsters suffer from 'high anxiety' - BBC News
The study looked at the wellbeing and mental health of 7.5 million young people in the UK aged 16 to 24. [...] The figures also show a rising proportion of young people who felt dissatisfied with their health. [...] The figures from the ONS show a picture of a growing number of young people who are satisfied with their lives - but with a persistent minority reporting unhappiness or suffering from anxiety. [...] Campus anxiety [...] But in terms of anxiety, 18% report high levels of anxiety and almost 16% have "medium" levels of anxiety. In a separate measure, there are almost 21% of young people with "evidence indicating depression or anxiety". And young people's perceptions of their own physical health seemed to be progressively more negative, with more expressing dissatisfaction and fewer feeling satisfied. [F]igures for the wellbeing of younger children which showed about one in eight youngsters between the ages of 10 and 15 reported symptoms of mental ill-health.

Regional divide in smoking in pregnancy - BBC News
[ doesn't even include second hand smoke that pregnant women are exposed to! ] NHS data shows 27.2% of mothers-to-be in Blackpool smoke throughout pregnancy compared with 2.1% in Westminster. And, each year, more than 70,000 pregnancies are affected by smoking. The overall rate has fallen to below 11% in England, but the Smoking in Pregnancy Challenge Group report urges a national target of below 6% by 2020. Each year, smoking during pregnancy in the UK causes an estimated: 2,200 premature births. 5,000 miscarriages. 300 stillbirths. [...] "We also know that there are big regional variations, with rates much higher in poorer communities. "We cannot be complacent." //&! bbc.in/1QBADNF

BBC One - Panorama, Tough Justice in Britain - Texas Style
As the UK's imprisonment rate remains the highest in western Europe, Panorama joins Michael Gove - the man in charge of British prisons - on a fact-finding mission in Texas. 'Hang 'em high' Texas is not the first place you might look for lessons in criminal justice - they execute more people and lock up more offenders than anywhere else in America. But now this conservative state is the unlikely centre of a rehabilitation-led revolution in prison reform that's sweeping through the US. Crime is down, prisoner numbers have fallen and, on top of this, they have cut costs. Are there valuable lessons to be learned here, and are UK politicians really ready to dole out some Texan justice?

Brighton and Hove initiative tackles sugar addiction - BBC News
The "devastating harm" caused by having too much sugar is the focus of Brighton and Hove's first city-wide campaign as part of a drive to help reduce obesity. More than 300 children were admitted to hospital for teeth extraction in the city in 2012-13, while treating diet-related diseases costs £80m a year. The Sugar Smart City initiative has the backing of TV chef Jamie Oliver. He has asked food outlets in the city to adopt a voluntary 10p sugar levy on soft drinks with added sugar. The food campaigner has recently launched a voluntary levy on sugary drinks in his own restaurants, with the money raised going to Sustain, a charity working in health and food education. The money raised elsewhere in the city from the charge will be paid into the Children's Health Fund. Statistics have shown that one in four children in Brighton and Hove are already overweight or obese by the time they leave primary school. [...] "We don't know where it is [...]"

APIs Are The New FTEs | TechCrunch
In The New World, FTEs (Full-Time Employees) Will Become APIs. Much has been made about how the dropping cost of website infrastructure has spurred a boom in startup formation, with Amazon Web Services held up as the prime example. The capital cost of servers has been eliminated, but even more important is the plummeting human cost. (<< Netflix has no own data center) [...] Companies and products like Heroku, Celery, RabbitMQ, Mandrill, Fastly, Chartio, Chargebee, Shipwire, Docker, Codeship, Rainforest QA, Replicated and Chartbeat have changed the nature of tech development.

Controlling parents 'harm future mental health' - BBC News
Children with caring parents were more securely attached and therefore better able to manage future relationships, the researchers said. Mothers' and fathers' care were equally important predictors of mental health through to middle age. But paternal care had a greater association with wellbeing in later life. They were also asked to reflect on the quality of their relationships with their parents in the first 16 years of their life. [...] "In some areas paternal care was more strongly associated with wellbeing than maternal care - the role of fathers should not be ignored when assessing psychological problems in children.

Five years, building a culture, and handing it off. - Laughing Meme
Nothing we know [ about X ] should be assumed to be true. // Technology is the product of the culture that builds it. // If you want to build for the long term, the only guarantee is change. Invest in your people and your ability to ask questions, not your current answers. Your current answers are wrong, or they will be soon. // Software development should be thought of as a cycle of continual learning and improvement rather a progression from start to finish, or a search for correctness. If you aren’t shipping, you aren’t learning. If it slows down shipping, it probably isn’t worth it. Maturity is knowing when to make the trade off and when not to. // You build a culture of learning by optimizing globally not locally. Your improvement, over time, as a team, with shared tools, practices and beliefs is more important than individual pockets of brilliance. And more satisfying.

Don't fear failure, unlock your inner creativity, and say yes | Don Dodge | TEDxAthens - YouTube
risk of failure greater than the chance of success. // Success is not final, failure is not fatal. Courage to move forward, counts. Move every day. None is giving you a free ride/lunch. // achieving 60% of the impossible is better than 100% of the ordinary! // NO TO INCREMENTALISM !!! // there are lots of people that you cant, and we teach conformity and not being a rebel, disruptor & creative. thus we create filters and cynicism. // we are very good at saying no ... no to fear, anxiety, the uncomfortable & the pain (the ability to grow), new experiences, // thus pattern matching. // Failure is not an option. Keep trying till you get it right - figured it out. THE LEARNING CURVE! failure is steepest learning curve (entrepreneurship). Thus everyone needs to be exposed to failure and adopt a growth mindset as child. With each failure you get closed to your goal, in case you dont stop & dont make the same mistake twice! // Dream when you are awake. Do it. Say yes to life & opportunities.

Tax sugary drinks by 20%, say doctors - BBC News
[health care budget bomb that WILL explode, is already oozing ] An extra 20% tax on sugary drinks should be introduced to tackle the obesity crisis, the British Medical Association says. It estimates poor diets are causing around 70,000 premature deaths each year. In a major report on unhealthy diets, the body called for the extra money raised to be used to subsidise fresh fruit and vegetables. [...] "We're looking at 30% of the UK population being obese by the year 2030, a large extent of that is due to the amount of sugar we're actually consuming without realising. "The biggest problem is a lot of us are unaware of the amount of sugar we are consuming on a day-to-day basis." [...] The government's main approach to obesity has to been to work with the food industry to get it to voluntarily reduce calorie content. [ but a calorie is not a calorie ! stupid ! ] &! bit.ly/1JZFAQS &! bbc.in/1TGifpc - Sugar intake 'should be halved' &! bbc.in/1OlN6Ug - Slim ppl get sick too.

Plea over mental health care funds
Children’s campaigners have called for a “radical rebalancing” of NHS budgets after figures showed less than 0.5% of all health cash goes on specialist services for children and young people with mental health problems. The Scottish Children’s Services Coalition (SCSC) called on ministers to increase funding on child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS). - http://www.heraldscotland.com/news/home-news/charities-urge-scottish-government-to-spend-on-mental-health-care-for-children.122984427 &! http://www.thescsc.org.uk/ - http://www.thescsc.org.uk/news/ &! http://www.thescsc.org.uk/new-health-board-figures-on-waiting-times-highlight-urgent-action-needed-to-deliver-on-mental-health-targets/ - http://www.thescsc.org.uk/scottish-health-board-figures-on-child-and-adolescent-mental-health-expenditure-highlight-critical-need-for-greater-spending/

Children’s mental health must be cared for. Or the consequences will be dire | Paul Burstow | Comment is free | The Guardian
While one in 10 children and young people has a treatable mental illness just one in four receives treatment [...] Half of life-long mental illness has its first signs and symptoms in the teenage years. Poor maternal mental health can have profound consequences for them, for their children and their children’s children.

The drugs that protect people who have unprotected sex - BBC News
HIV infection rates are on the rise, particularly among gay men. But could a new type of drug treatment - PrEP - be given to people so they avoid catching the disease, asks Mobeen Azhar. [...] It's impossible to know how many men have become infected with HIV while using chems, but condom-less sex is normal for many men on the chem scene. In a study published by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, a third of men surveyed described incidents of unintended unprotected sex while under the influence of chemsex drugs. [...] One in every eight gay men in London is HIV positive.

Pushy parents stress out children, Eton head says - BBC News
There has been a rise in the number of parents "living their lives through their ambitions for their children", the head teacher of Eton has said. Tony Little, who is leaving the school, said most parents had been "supportive" but there were now "more pressures on young people than ever before". And if his pupils failed to conform to parents' "outcome template", it could "add to the stresses" in their life. Eton employs a full-time psychologist to promote "good mental health". [...] "Children don't learn unless they are happy," she said. [...] In a wide-ranging interview, Mr Little also said he was "exasperated" by England's exam system and that learning subjects in "silos" prevented pupils from thinking laterally. "It's like an egg timer," he said.

The Top 6 Tech Skills You Need in 2015 | Inc.com
Technology is one area that no one in any industry can afford to grow complacent about--tech is changing so quickly that skills you mastered last year may already be outdated. In such a quickly evolving industry, information decays at a rate of 30 percent a year, according to Research in Labor Economics, rendering nearly a third of last year's tech-related knowledge irrelevant.
