By Faith PeppersUniversity of GeorgiaAmerican girls who are overweight in their “tween” years — between 9 and 12 years old — are 10 times more likely to grow into overweight adults, says a recent Journal of Pediatrics report. Experts say good family nutrition habits and plenty of exercise are keys to helping these girls stay healthy.”The best way is to adopt family nutrition and physical activity habits that promote healthy food choices,” said Connie Crawley, a University of Georgia Cooperative Extension food and nutrition specialist.The new U.S. Dietary Guidelines say children and youths need at least one hour per day of physical activity. “That doesn’t necessarily mean a solid hour of formal exercise,” said Crawley, who is also a professor in the UGA College of Family and Consumer Sciences.It could be “a combination of sports, play and just increased activity, like biking or walking,” she said “Any activity is better than always sitting in front of the TV or computer or riding in cars.”Healthy habit modeling by parents, Crawley said, is vital, too. “Parents’ attitudes are paramount for younger children,” she said.”A big no-no is for female family members to say negative things about their own bodies or the bodies of others,” she said. “This just makes the body be seen as an enemy to overcome instead of a wonderful entity that has all these capabilities.”The goal is to make sure a girl’s looks aren’t the primary criteria for her self worth. “It’s important to honestly compliment her other gifts,” Crawley said. “Poor self-esteem is a primary cause of over- and undereating.”Determining a healthy weight can be tricky. Crawley recommends having a pediatrician chart the girl’s growth pattern. This compares her growth to a standard set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “Ideally, she should be between the 25th and 85th percentiles for her body mass index,” she said. A less formal healthy weight goal is the girl’s weight when she’s regularly eating a healthy diet with regular physical activity.”Most people can look at their children and decide if they’re carrying too much weight,” she said.Weight loss isn’t the answer, though, unless she’s morbidly overweight. “Ideally, girls will stabilize their weight gain for a while and grow into it by changing to healthier eating and activity habits,” she said.If more exercise and healthier eating isn’t working for your child, consult a registered and licensed dietitian at a local hospital or clinic. Before you try to help her manage her weight, it’s wise to talk to a nutritionist. Eating too few calories can slow growth and hamper school performance.Make sure your child is getting a healthy diet without sacrificing needed protein, calcium and other nutrients. Crawley suggests serving low fat and nonfat dairy foods, more cooked dried beans and peas, skinless poultry and fish (not fried), and leaner cuts of red meat.”Eat the least processed foods possible, as fresh as possible and only when you’re truly hungry, not just because it’s there or tastes good or it’s time for a meal or snack,” she said.”Not having healthier food choices available at home, school and when eating out is a big challenge for young girls,” Crawley said. “Along with wanting to eat what all their friends eat, they often have the ‘dieting’ mentality that starts very early in this country and makes eating feast or famine.”Other obstacles to healthy tweens, she said, are eating while watching TV and other sedentary activities and linking any social event with food.While doing their best to model healthy habits, she said, parents “need to keep an eye out for the signs of eating disorders. They’re usually the last to know or recognize this problem.”For good tips on healthy eating, Crawley recommends the new MyPyramid Web site (www.mypyramid.gov).

Osijek-Baranja County participated in the “Belt and Road Sichuan” International Forum for Cooperation and Development in China, Sichuan Province, where among 42 delegations from 32 countries, the economic and tourist potentials of the County were presented. Osijek-Baranja County was one of the main partners of the Forum, and the focus of participation was the area of trade and investment. The four-day visit of the Osijek-Baranja County delegation to the Chinese province of Sichuan concluded with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between Osijek-Baranja County and the Sichuan Province on establishing friendship and cooperation. Osijek-Baranja County, based on the signed Memorandum and established relations with the Province of Sichuan, will continue to promote and position investment potentials with the aim of strengthening the economy and tourism in the county, according to OBŽ. “The memorandum was signed in the desire to strengthen friendly relations through the establishment of interregional cooperation, and the goal is to mutually increase economic and trade exchange and cultural development of the two regions. The priority sectors of cooperation prescribed by the Memorandum are environmental protection and ecology, transport and logistics, modern agriculture and education, tourism and culture. ” said Prefect Anušić during the signing of the Agreement and added that the cooperation with the Province of Sichuan is the result of intensive work on the international positioning of Osijek-Baranja County and its resources, as well as the development of cooperation between Croatia and the People’s Republic of China within the 16 + 1 Initiative. Photo: Osijek-Baranja County “Croatia as a member of the European Union, a country with beautiful natural resources, rich cultural heritage, excellent gastronomic and eno offer and especially after the success of our national football team at last year’s World Cup has become interesting to Chinese tourists and investors. Osijek-Baranja County is geostrategically well positioned and well connected with the entire region, so at the invitation of the host we presented investment and tourism potentials. I believe in the exchange of experiences and future active cooperation between our county and the province of Sichuan, which I emphasized in my presentation at the Governor’s Forum. “said Prefect Anusic. A meeting was also held with the mayors of Leshan and Meishan, the most developed tourist destinations in the Province of Sichuan, and he presented the tourist offer and agricultural resources of the county. The mayors expressed particular interest in developing further bilateral co-operation. Sichuan Province has seen significant economic growth in recent years. In 2018, it achieved a GDP of 605,3 billion US dollars. The province has established economic and trade links with more than 220 countries and regions, and 17 countries have opened consular offices in the province. It is one of the main centers of agricultural production in China, and they are also focused on the development of a high-tech industrial base through investments in electronic and information technologies. As they point out from Osijek-Baranja County, the governor of the Sichuan Province Yin Li expressed great interest in cooperation in terms of organic agricultural production, science and tourism. Therefore, OBŽ sent an invitation to the Governor in Osijek-Baranja County, which will be one of the next steps in the implementation and strengthening of further cooperation.
Newstalk ZB 3 June 2012The Prime Minister’s being challenged over his statement that light smacking of children is ok under the law. Family First says it’s essentially “a crock”. It’s citing the case of a mother who had to go all the way to the Court of Appeal to get an acquittal, after she admitted lightly smacking her eight year old son. Family First’s Bob McCoskrie says the case is another example showing the smacking law isn’t working.http://www.newstalkzb.co.nz/auckland/news/nbnat/1532495649-Opposition-to-PM-s-child-smacking-commentSmacking conviction overturned on appealRadio NZ 3 June 2012 A woman whose eight-year-old son was hit twice on the bottom with a belt on one occasion last year has had her conviction for assault quashed by the Court of Appeal. The result is being welcomed by advocacy group Family First which says it shows how confused the 2007 child discipline legislation has proved to be. During the incident the woman asked her partner to administer the punishment, which he did. Both were convicted in the District Court and sentenced to community work. The partner was subsequently cleared on appeal to the High Court. The woman has now been discharged by the Court of Appeal but has already served her sentence and lost her job. The Court of Appeal says her penalties were out of all proportion to the gravity of the offending. Family First director Bob McCroskie says the case involved an extremely difficult child for whom the mother had repeatedly sought help, but none was available. He says there is a lack of support for parents who are struggling. Mr McCroskie says the legislation is confused and needs to be precisely worded.http://www.radionz.co.nz/news/national/107378/smacking-conviction-overturned-on-appealParents’ hell after choice to strap childSunday Star Times 3 June 2012A mum’s “considered decision” to strap her son led to an assault conviction, and a judge told her that thinking about it first made it worse than if she’d done it in anger. The woman and her partner, both South Island teachers, were convicted after they strapped their 8-year-old son, over his pyjamas, with a belt in January last year. But after taking their case all the way to the Court of Appeal, they were discharged without conviction. Anti-smacking law critics say the case is an example of good parents being criminalised, contrary to assurances from politicians when the law came in. …(The mum) said she was overjoyed at being discharged after “a year-and-a-half of hell”. She said when the anti-smacking law was introduced she thought it would stop people from abusing their children. “I didn’t for a second think I would get criminalised.” Family First director Bob McCroskie said the case showed the law “coming home to roost”. “This mother has had her career damaged, lost income and faced legal fees, and it’s caused irreparable damage to the family. “She was honest, asked for help, went to professionals who never came running with assistance – but were quick to prosecute.” “The warning to all good parents from this is to be careful what they admit.”http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/crime/7036188/Parents-hell-after-choice-to-strap-childWoman wins appeal over smacking3 Newshttp://www.3news.co.nz/Woman-wins-appeal-over-smacking/tabid/423/articleID/256534/Default.aspxNZ woman wins appeal over smackingHerald Sun / Sky news (Aust)http://www.heraldsun.com.au/ipad/nz-woman-wins-appeal-over-smacking/story-fn6s850w-1226382085219http://www.skynews.com.au/world/article.aspx?id=757083&vId=Smack mum gets offSydney Morning Heraldhttp://www.smh.com.au/business/smack-mum-gets-off-20120603-1zq1w.html

(David Santiago/Miami Herald via AP)ExpandMIAMI — Walker Buehler’s off days always seem to come on the road.Master of his domain at Dodger Stadium, Buehler struggled on the road again Thursday, failing to retire a batter in the fifth inning as the Miami Marlins beat the Dodgers 13-7.Buehler was just the first victim in a game that damaged ERAs indiscriminately. It took 383 pitches from 11 pitchers to get through the four-hour, seven-minute game, leaving a trail of 20 hits, 13 walks, five hit batters and four home runs (all by the Dodgers) – including Cody Bellinger’s 40th, making him the first in the majors to reach that mark this season..“Just one of those days. It wasn’t a good day of pitching for us,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “I thought offensively we put together good at-bats, kept playing and gave ourselves a chance to win as far as putting runs up on the board. But on the pitching side, it just wasn’t a good day.” Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco The Dodgers’ young right-hander has been a handful for opposing hitters at Dodger Stadium. In 11 starts there this year, he is 5-0 with a 2.33 ERA and an 0.82 WHIP. He has allowed just a .196 average in L.A. with 94 strikeouts and only seven walks. In six of his 11 starts there, he has allowed one run or none.He hasn’t been the same pitcher when the Dodgers leave town.In 12 starts away from home this year, Buehler has a 4.37 ERA and 1.32 WHIP. Batters have hit .254 against him. And Thursday was the sixth time in 12 road starts that he has allowed at least four runs. His home-road splits as a rookie in 2018 were similarly tilted.“I know the splits aren’t pretty,” Buehler said.So does Roberts. But he has no explanation for it.“In talking to him, I know he’s comfortable pitching at home,” Roberts said. “But essentially half of your starts are going to have to come on the road. Whatever it is, if there is anything to it, yeah, we’ve got to dig into it. I know Walker is not going to make any excuses about home vs. road. But the numbers are real. They don’t lie. If that’s the case, we’ve got to figure something out.“Right now, I don’t have an answer for that.”Buehler has an answer, if not an action plan to get there.“Throw better on the road,” he said. “There’s no way you can recreate it or do anything that could replicate pitching on the road. I don’t think that’s something that’s attainable. But I think just trying to get better in general I think is going to translate.Related Articles How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start “I’ve had good games on the road in my career and I’ve had good games at home. Just a matter of having more good ones in general, not one or the other.”He wasn’t alone in struggling Thursday. Getting his new once-a-series work despite the lopsided score, Kenley Jansen retired the side in a scoreless seventh, becoming the first pitcher on either side to record more than one out and not give up a run.The Dodgers had just three hits in the first six innings – all home runs. Kyle Garlick, Max Muncy and Corey Seager each hit one. Seager homered in each of the three games.Bellinger hit his 40th in the seventh inning, a 412-foot three-run upper decker. Hours later, the Angels’ Mike Trout would join him at the 40-homer mark.“It’s pretty cool,” Bellinger said of being the first to 40 in the majors — and matching Gary Sheffield for the fastest to 40 in a season by a Dodger (118 games).“There’s still a lot of baseball to be played so I’m just going to keep doing what I’ve been doing and hopefully there will be more to come.” Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error That was obvious from the start.Buehler hit the first batter he faced but bobbed and weaved through the first four innings, avoiding the big hit. Seven of the first 13 Marlins batters reached base but only two scored. The first three Marlins batters in the fifth inning reached, though, capped by a two-run double by Brian Anderson that ended Buehler’s day.The Marlins went on to score six times in the fifth inning and five more times in the sixth, gaining a measure of revenge after being outscored 24-2 in the first two games of the series. Pedro Baez came on in relief of Buehler and failed to record an out, allowing three runs on three hits and two walks.“Just kind of a breakdown of everything I do well,” Buehler said. “Not a good one.”Those breakdowns come more frequently when Buehler takes his act on the road.
