first_img By Christopher J. Ferguson, Professor of Psychology, Stetson University. This article first published on theconversation.com.How concerned should people be about the psychological effects of screen time? Balancing technology use with other aspects of daily life seems reasonable, but there is a lot of conflicting advice about where that balance should be. Much of the discussion – including the World Health Organization’s recent decision to declare “gaming disorder” an “addictive behavior disorder” –is framed around fighting “addiction” to technology. But to me, that resembles a moral panic, giving voice to scary claims based on weak data.For example, in April 2018, television journalist Katie Couric’s “America Inside Out” program focused on the effects of technology on people’s brains. The episode featured the co-founder of a business treating technology addiction. That person compared addiction to technology with addictions to cocaine and other drugs. The show also implied that technology use could lead to Alzheimer’s disease-like memory loss. Others, such as psychologist Jean Twenge, have linked smartphones with teen suicide.A National Geographic Channel show raises alarms about technology use.I am a psychologist who has worked with teens and families and conducted research on technology use, video games and addiction. I believe most of these fear-mongering claims about technology are rubbish. There are several common myths of technology addiction that deserve to be debunked by actual research.Technology is not a drugSome people have claimed that technology use activates the same pleasure centers of the brain as cocaine, heroin or methamphetamine. That’s vaguely true, but brain responses to pleasurable experiences are not reserved only for unhealthy things.Anything fun results in an increased dopamine release in the “pleasure circuits” of the brain – whether it’s going for a swim, reading a good book, having a good conversation, eating or having sex. Technology use causes dopamine release similar to other normal, fun activities: about 50 to 100 percent above normal levels.Cocaine, by contrast, increases dopamine 350 percent, and methamphetamine a whopping 1,200 percent. In addition, recent evidence has found significant differences in how dopamine receptors work among people whose computer use has caused problems in their daily lives, compared to substance abusers. But I believe people who claim brain responses to video games and drugs are similar are trying to liken the drip of a faucet to a waterfall.Comparisons between technology addictions and substance abuse are also often based on brain imaging studies, which themselves have at times proven unreliable at documenting what their authors claim. Other recent imaging studies have also disproved past claims that violent games desensitized young brains, leading children to show less emotional connection with others’ suffering.Technology addiction is not commonPeople who talk about tech addictions often express frustration with their smartphone use, or they can’t understand why kids game so much. But these aren’t real addictions, involving significant interference with other life activities such as school, work or social relationships.My own research has suggested that 3 percent of gamers – or less – develop problem behaviors, such as neglecting schoolwork to the point that grades suffer. Most of those difficulties are mild and go away on their own over time.Technology addiction is not a mental illnessIn June 2018, the World Health Organization added “gaming disorder” to its International Compendium of Diseases.But it’s a very controversial decision. I am among 28 scholars who wrote to the WHO protesting that the decision was poorly informed by science. The WHO seemed to ignore research that suggested “gaming disorder” is more a symptom of other, underlying mental health issues such as depression, rather than its own disorder.This year, the Media Psychology and Technology division of the American Psychological Association, of which I am a fellow, likewise released a statement critical of the WHO’s decision. The WHO’s sister organization, UNICEF, also argued against using “addiction” language to describe children’s screen use.Controversies aside, I have found that current data doesn’t support technology addictions as stand-alone diagnoses. For example, there’s the Oxford study that found people who rate higher in what is called “game addiction” don’t show more psychological or health problemsthan others. Additional research has suggested that any problems technology overusers may experience tend to be milder than would happen with a mental illness, and usually go away on their own without treatment.‘Tech addiction’ is not caused by technologyMost of the discussion of technology addictions suggest that technology itself is mesmerizing, harming normal brains. But my research suggests that technology addictions generally are symptoms of other, underlying disorders like depression, anxiety and attention problems. People don’t think that depressed people who sleep all day have a “bed addiction.”This is of particular concern when considering who needs treatment, and for what conditions. Efforts to treat “technology addiction” may do little more than treat a symptom, leaving the real problem intact.The Conversation, CC BY-NDTechnology is not uniquely addictiveThere’s little question that some people overdo a wide range of activities. Those activities do include technology use, but also exercise, eating, sex, work, religion and shopping. There are even research papers on dance addiction. But few of these have official diagnoses. There’s little evidence that technology is more likely to be overused than a wide range of other enjoyable activities.Technology use does not lead to suicideSome pundits have pointed to a recent rise in suicide rates among teen girls as evidence for tech problems. But suicide rates increased for almost all age groups, particularly middle-aged adults, for the 17-year period from 1999 to 2016. This rise apparently began around 2008, during the financial collapse, and has become more pronounced since then. That undercuts the claim that screens are causing suicides in teens, as does the fact that suicide rates are far higher among middle-aged adults than youth. There appears to be a larger issue going on in society. Technopanics could be distracting regular people and health officials from identifying and treating it.One recent paper claimed to link screen use to teen depression and suicide. But another scholar with access to the same data revealed the effect was no larger than the link between eating potatoes and suicide. This is a problem: Scholars sometimes make scary claims based on tiny data that are often statistical blips, not real effects.To be sure, there are real problems related to technology, such as privacy issues. And people should balance technology use with other aspects of their lives. It’s also worth keeping an eye out for the very small percentage of individuals who do overuse. There’s a tiny kernel of truth to our concerns about technology addictions, but the available evidence suggests that claims of a crisis, or comparisons to substance abuse, are entirely unwarranted.

first_imgTuesday Sep 11, 2007 Brian Lima knocks himself out spectacularly As much respect as we have for Brian Lima for being the only man to ever appear at five World Cups, he lost the plot on sunday. The man who demolished Derick Hougaard four years ago came on to make history against the Springboks. After being on the field for 3 mins, there was a bit of poetic justice as he attempted an outrageous tackle on flyhalf Andre Pretorious that was not only late, but very high. The big Samoan veteran knocked himself out instantly. Pretorious miraculously got up, with his head still connected to the rest of his body and probably breathing a sigh of relief after seeing the Chiropractor coming off second best. In my opinion Lima got what he deserved. This tackle was totally illegal and on another day could have caused serious injury to the opposition. If it were a little lower and earlier it would have been perfectly legal and added to his legendary status. But it wasn’t. The question now is if he’ll get the opportunity to redeem himself through the rest of the tournament. A concussion is not to be treated lightly, and with the group games still to be played, it would be tragic for the Samoans to be without him. Perhaps it will be safer for the other teams though, as Derick Hougaard will testify to.ADVERTISEMENT :: Related Posts :: Brian Lima picks on Mirco Bergamasco in the Tsunami Charity Match of 2005 Brian Lima’s carer ending tackle on Jonny Wilkinson Brian Lima bone cruncher on Derick Hougaard Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The mother has an active lifestyle, where she frequently comes and goes, while the couple is more introverted and reclusive, preferring to stay home, cook, and watch movies. The mother enjoys spending the majority of her time tending to the garden, while the couple enjoys inviting guests with whom to cook and entertain. These two varying sets of influence help to shape the design of this farmhouse.Save this picture!© HyoChel HwangTo address their different lifestyles, the mother’s main space is located near the entrance, so that she can access the outdoors without disrupting the solitude of the couple. The couple’s primary space is located more privately on the inner side of the villa. Common spaces, which connect the two households, are enveloped by a slim flat roof which conjointly ties the two together making the villa both geometrically and spatially complete.The client required a maximum 100m2 villa in order to get a financial support from their government, so the villa itself is designed as a compact and succinct house. The first strategy employed to achieve this is to create distinct zones for ‘service’ and ‘served.’  Service spaces directly serve the living plane: living/dining room and bed room. Thus, the service distances become short and convenient. Save this picture!© HyoChel HwangBy observing the client’s previous house and lifestyle, the architect found that this family lacked a comfortable environment, and adequate storage to make their home suitable. Therefore, this farmhouse incorporates both passive heating and cooling strategies, as well as generous storage into its design. Storage shelves, and other fixed-furniture are designed and integrated as part of the architecture. A small sunroom, a ‘warm roof’ and double-layered folding glass doors are incorporated in order to make this dwelling energy efficient and climatically comfortable for its inhabitants.Save this picture!© HyoChel HwangA major challenge was to design useable outdoor spaces. Because of the compact size of the villa, 100m2, the residual site is almost 18 times the size of the home. The villa sits in the middle of the south-north oriented site, so the villa spatially divides the site into three distinct parts. Each piece naturally has its own unique character so the site design follows suit.Save this picture!PlanUpon arriving at the site, the first impression of the villa is a garden of lush green vegetables. The mother loves to grow all kinds of vegetables, and the fresh greens go directly from the garden to their daily dining table. Behind the vegetable garden, a small space welcomes people before entering the main villa, which is referred to as the Entrance Garden. This is a flexible space the family can use for various events and activities. On the other side of villa, the scenery changes completely. A very modern garden with green grass and colorful flowers which grow naturally on the site are preserved. A panoramic window is designed to fit seemly to the picturesque view from the dining table. Despite the proportionally large site, all the outdoor spaces contribute to this project’s character by bringing nature closer to the family.Save this picture!© HyoChel HwangAnother challenging aspect was maximizing flexibility for the villa. Unlike city houses, a farmhouse needs plenty of space for the harvesting and processing of its produce seasonally. Thus, the villa was designed to have many expandable spaces according to occasional demands.  For instance, the main kitchen inside the villa is compact, but a spacious utility room and outdoor facilities serve as a second kitchen.Save this picture!SectionFollowing the logic of farming’s seasonal demands, the house also has occasional demands. As the family enjoys entertaining and cooking with friends and family, there is flexibility within the house’s social spaces as well. In addition, the garage was designed as a multifunctional social space by integrating parking with storage, loft and sub-kitchen.Save this picture!© HyoChel HwangAdvantageously, many kinds of events can take place in the combined garage and Entrance Garden because the multipurpose garage creates a spacious enclosed area both inside and outside. Naturally, this family loves to invite friends and family to BBQs, parties, and to make Kimchi together with all their neighbors.Save this picture!© HyoChel HwangProject gallerySee allShow lessGuest&Bath House / FAS(t) architectural bureauSelected ProjectsHouse Paint Pavilion / GELPI PROJECTSSelected Projects Share Suitable Farmhouse / OfAASave this projectSaveSuitable Farmhouse / OfAA Area:  131 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Suitable Farmhouse / OfAAlast_img read more

In the first floor, there are the intimate areas, such as dorms and TV room.

The union of the environments also ensures good natural lighting and cross ventilation, essential for the warmth and comfort of the construction.Save this picture!© Julia RibeiroLarges glass frames are used to bring out the idea of ampleness. In this way, the visual connection between interior and exterior is maintained even when the windows and doors are closed.

The choice of materials in their most natural condition, applied punctually, not only contributes to the fluidity of the environments but also highlights the role of architectural solutions.Save this picture!© Julia RibeiroOn the floors, the porcelain tile with burnt cement effect gives the easier maintenance, while the full use of wood in the woodworks offers the feeling of coziness.

La Borda housing cooperative is a development self-organized by its users to access decent, non-speculative housing that places its use value in the center, through a collective structure. The idea of a housing cooperative was born in 2012 as a project of Can Batlló driven by the community in the process of recovery of the industrial premises, and the neighborhood and cooperative fabric of the Sants neighborhood of Barcelona. The project is located on a public land of social housing, with a leasehold of 75 years.

The building program proposes 28 units (40, 60 and 75m²) and community spaces that allow stretching the fact of living, from the private space to the public space to enhance the community life. These spaces are: kitchen-dining room, laundry, multipurpose space, space for guests, health and care space, storage in each plant, and exterior and semi-exterior spaces such as the patio and roofs. All of them articulated around a central courtyard, a large relationship space reminiscent of the “corralas”, a typology of popular housing in central and southern parts of Spain.Save this picture!© Lluc MirallesSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Lluc Miralles(2) sustainability and environmental quality. The objective is to build with the lowest environmental impact possible, both in the construction work and during its life and, above all, achieve comfort in homes with minimum consumption, to reduce the overall costs of access to housing and eliminate the possibility of energy poverty among users. We started from the conviction that the best strategy is to reduce the initial demand of all the environmental vectors of the building (energy, water, materials and waste), especially at the energy level, where we prioritized passive strategies to achieve maximum use of existing resources.Save this picture!© Lluc MirallesSave this picture!Site planSave this picture!© Lluc Miralles(3) user participation. Self-promotion and subsequent collective management implies that the participation of future users in the process (design, construction and use) is the most important and differential variable of the project, generating an opportunity to meet and project with them and their specific needs . During the design, the participation was articulated through the architecture commission, which was the link between the technical team and the general assembly, and the one in charge of preparing the architectural workshops.

first_img News RSF calls for open trial of Maldivian blogger’s accused murderers News Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is joining other NGOs in condemning the media freedom violations that have taken place in Maldives since a state of emergency was proclaimed. RSF and the other NGOs call on the authorities to allow journalists to work normally during this critical period. We urge the Maldives to immediately take measures to ensure freedom of the press and safety of the media and journalists allowing them to report freely and without fear of prosecution or other consequences during this critical time for the Maldives democracy. Maldivian riot policemen oversee the work of media representatives (photo : Adam Sireii / AFP). On February 4, the deputy leader of the ruling Progressive Party of Maldives (PPM), Abdul Raheem Abdullah, called on the security forces to immediately shut down Raajje TV, accusing it of giving airtime to the opposition leaders. Maldivian president’s comms chief accused of sexually harassing journalist Organisation Police also questioned journalists at the news websites Avas and Mihaaru on February 1 after the sites published a statement issued by the Maldives jailed former vice president, Ahmed Adeeb. The Maldives Broadcasting Commission (MBC) and the Maldives Correctional Service (MCS), on February 2, issued separate notices warning against broadcasting content “threatening national security”. Amid the growing political crisis in the Maldives, the International Federation of Journalists (IFJ), Reporters Without Borders (RSF) and the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) are deeply concerned by ongoing restrictions and threats on media and press freedom in the Maldives, and call on authorities to allow media to carry out work without reprisal. Maldives is ranked 117th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index. These restrictions come after the Maldivian media has already been forced to exercise the high level of self-censorship due to the draconian Anti-Defamation and Freedom of Expression Act. The IFJ, RSF and CPJ reaffirm that amidst the ongoing political turmoil in the Maldives, it is critical for the media to report freely and without fear to ensappellel ure the public access to credible information. However, the level of threat to the media by the state agencies is dangerously high, making it impossible to ensure independent journalism. The current state of threats and repression directed at the media in the Maldives violate critical international standards of democracy and rule of law. All threats and harassment to media in the Maldives should immediately stop and the state should act to ensure the safety and security of media and journalists. Two journalists working for the Agence France-Presse, Indian photographer Money Sharma, and British videographer Atish Patel, were arrested on February 9. One day earlier, the Ministry of Defense and National Security warned of action on parties found to have brought forward content impacting national security without a prior notice. The statement added that live shows and programs on media could “create chaos, confusion in public and create discord within the society”. Following the warning, the opposition-aligned Raajje TV suspended its regular broadcast ‘due to increased harassment, threats and intimidation’ and ‘unsafe environment for journalists to report freely and independently, and without fear’. It also said the Maldives Police withdrew security provided to the station, which has weathered several attacks in the past.

They include European Parliament president Martin Schulz, who tweeted: “Turkish government gagging journalists goes on unabated. Yesterday’s arrest of Erol Önderoglu, Şebnem Korur Fincancı and Ahmet Nesin are against free press and EU values.”The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe also expressed strong concern. “Silencing these individuals, and thereby curbing pluralistic debate, is deeply damaging to not only the affected individuals and their loved ones, but also to society as a whole,” OSCE media freedom representative Dunja Mijatović said. “The authorities should drop the charges and stop using imprisonment as a way to fight differing voices.”The arrests go “against Turkey’s commitment to respect the fundamental rights, including freedom of media”, said Federica Mogherini, the European Union’s high representative for foreign affairs. “The EU has repeatedly stressed that Turkey, as a candidate country, must aspire to the highest possible democratic standards and practices.”Council of Europe commissioner for human rights Nils Muiznieks twitted. “Appalled by detention of human rights defenders in Turkey. I will take this up with the authorities.”Turkey is ranked 151st out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.
