Researchers say letting children play video games in the operating room before undergoing surgery can help relax them better than tranquilizers or holding Mommy’s hand. Doctors found that allowing children a few minutes to play the games reduced their anxiety until the anesthesia took effect.
If you’d like your kids to read more books, a new study is offering up a furry solution. Researchers from the University of British Columbia say that simply sitting down with a book in the presence of a dog can help motivate children to read more. The study focused on whether a child would be motivated to continue reading longer and persevere through moderately challenging sections of of a book when they are accompanied by a dog. The findings showed that children spent significantly more time reading and showed more persistence when a dog — regardless of breed or age — was in the room as opposed to when they read without them.
It can be scary to ask for help. You don’t want to bother people, and you definitely don’t want to seem incompetent or unprepared. But some recent research from Harvard Business School found something reassuring: When you ask for advice, the people you’re asking tend to find you more competent, not less.

high school football players are suspended in Florida following a
wild post-game brawl in a playoff game last month. The Florida High
School Athletic Association also fined Wekiva High School $500 after
referees’ filed a report on the fight. Officials say Wekiva players
physically confronted opponents from New Port Richey Mitchell High
School after losing a playoff semifinal game on Nov. 27th. According
to a report, “After the game was over the Mitchell team was
basically attacked by a few of the Wekiva players, resulting in the
whole team from Wekiva charging over.” The incident took place
after Mitchell took a knee on the last play of the game to run out
the clock. School administrators said that nine members of the losing
team left the sideline area to push and punch opposing players. One
student was seen throwing helmets at a player who was lying on the
ground after being punched multiple times. Local law enforcement
agencies are not pressing charges against anyone involved, because
they say no victims have come forward to file a report. School
officials say they accept the fines and suspension and will not
appeal the sanctions.(https://bit.ly/36RTgOt)
MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by TimeForRehab.com
days after some fifty Christmas trees were stolen from a local
hardware store, the Spokane Police Department said it has arrested
the real life “Grinch” who stole them. Upon reviewing store
security video at River Ridge Hardware, it was clear the incident
happened at 3:30 a.m. when someone packed the trees into a trailer. A
post on the store’s Facebook page asked the public to share any
information they might have with the Spokane Police Department. On
Monday, officers with the Patrol Anti-Crime Team and Downtown
Neighborhood Resource Officers began investigating the incident. The
investigation led to the arrest of 49-year-old Eli P. Vansickle.
After his arrest, Vansickle told police where the trailer used in the
burglary was stashed in Spokane, leading to the recovery of the
stolen trees. Vansickle has a felony record and was jailed on
suspicion of burglary and theft. (https://bit.ly/37JOJNn)
