Most vulnerable toddlers not getting available help – study

first_img3News 24 July 2015Questions have been raised whether country’s support services are effectively targeting those most in need following the release of new research today.The Growing up in New Zealand study says only one in five families whose children could become vulnerable access social support in the child’s first 1000 days of life.University of Auckland associate professor Susan Morton says experiencing “persistent exposure to adversity” in early life has a negative impact on children’s health and behaviour.“It is a real concern to see that the majority of families who are potentially most in need of support during their children’s early years are not connected to social service providers,” she says.The study is following almost 7000 children from before birth until adulthood, and utilises a set of 12 “risk factors”, including:Maternal depressionPoor maternal physical wellbeingMother smoking regularly/daily during and after pregnancyTeenage pregnancyMother with no current partnerMother with no formal secondary school qualificationsReporting highly stressful money problemsLiving in a low socio-economic areaMother actively seeking work but not currently workingLiving in public rental accommodationBeing in receipt of an income-tested Government benefitHaving two or more persons on average per bedroom.http://www.3news.co.nz/nznews/most-vulnerable-toddlers-not-getting-available-help–study-2015072410#axzz3gx9a6FZjlast_img read more

FA to investigate lighter incident

first_img Press Association QPR are unlikely to face disciplinary action over the incident which happened as Chelsea players celebrated the winning goal in Sunday’s 1-0 victory. It is understood however that the FA will seek observations from each club and will ensure that QPR and the police are taking the necessary steps to identify the culprit via CCTV and for them to face a banning order. QPR are reviewing CCTV footage and have promised to ban those involved. They have also appealed to witnesses to come forward. A club spokesperson said: “Whilst we understand that passions run high during derby fixtures, this is not the kind of behaviour the club condones in any way, shape or form. “We take a zero tolerance approach to this sort of behaviour and, if the perpetrators are identified, they will be banned indefinitely from the stadium and, where appropriate, we will liaise with the Metropolitan Police. “The club are awaiting communication from the FA following the referee’s report and will work closely with them in ensuring something like this does not happen again. “We would also appeal to fans with any information regarding yesterday’s incident to contact the club, as we feel it’s important to identify the perpetrators as soon as possible, as we believe they are not a true representation of the QPR fan-base.” center_img The Football Association will be contacting QPR and Chelsea after an incident which saw Branislav Ivanovic struck on the head by a cigarette lighter thrown from a section of home supporters at Loftus Road.last_img read more

Gaganjeet Bhullar Leads at Fiji International Golf with A Three-under-par 69

first_imgFiji: Indias Gaganjeet Bhullar snatched the third round lead with a three-under-par 69 at the Fiji International golf tournament here on Saturday.The 30-year-old has won under blustery conditions before, most notably in Macau and he believes he can replicate that similar winning form as he holds a one-shot advantage over the Australian quartet of Jake McLeon, Jarryd Felton, Terry Pilkadaris and Andrew Dodt with his three-day total of eight-under-par 208.McLeon, who finished tied-second in Thailand last week, hopes to ride on his good form and surmount a challenge on the day which matters most after returning with a 70 at the Natadola Bay Championship Golf Course.Overnight leader Ben Campbell of New Zealand meanwhile had a day to forget when he saw his four-shot advantage wiped out after returning with a 77 to slip down to sixth place.South Africa’s Ernie Els, a four-time Major champion and former world number one, underlined his credentials by signing for a 69 to haul himself back into contention.

USG president, BSA director respond to shooting

first_imgUndergraduate Student Body President Mikey Geragos and Black Student Assembly Director Lamar Gary issued statements Friday in response to Wednesday night’s shooting.A man allegedly shot Geno Hall, a former Crenshaw High School football star, and three other victims in a confrontation that occurred outside of the Ronald Tutor Campus Center. Police also detained another male suspect on Wednesday, though they have not released his identity.The suspects and victims were in line for the Halloween party “Freak or Greek,” which was being held in the ballroom, according to eyewitness accounts. At least 500 students from USC and other colleges attended the party, which was heavily promoted by the event organizer LA Hype across social media. Scheduling papers for the event were filed under the Black Student Assembly’s name.Geragos expressed his condolences to the four victims who were injured in the shooting that occurred outside the “Freak or Greek” party.“It is truly disturbing that the shooting happened during one of our assembly’s campus events, but we are working with our University leadership in taking immediate action to develop additional measures for campus safety and security,” Geragos said.Gary said he hopes the incident will not reflect poorly on BSA.“We are currently working in conjunction with the administration to address any concerns that might have arisen,” Gary said. “This incident is not a reflection of the Black Student Assembly. We have gone to great lengths this year to direct our attention towards cultural awareness and mentorship.”last_img read more

Indiana begins final B1G stretch for Wisconsin

first_imgMany would have predicted before the season began that the next few weeks for the Wisconsin football team (7-2, 4-1) against Indiana and Minnesota would be smooth sailing for the Badgers.But the football season can be unpredictable, and this one is no different. Suddenly, with most of the season behind them, Indiana (4-5, 2-3 Big Ten) is averaging 43.1 points per game on offense, and Minnesota boasts an 8-2 record and is receiving votes in the polls. More importantly, neither game looks quite like the guaranteed win that it once appeared to be — something head coach Gary Andersen doesn’t mind.“Moving on to this week, Indiana has a very potent offense that’s proven itself week in and week out,” Andersen said.“Football is year-by-year, and Indiana’s done some really nice things this year. … They score at least 28 points each week. If that doesn’t make you stand up and grab your attention as a defender, then nothing will.”While at first it might seem silly to think that Indiana would be anything other than Wisconsin’s punching bag this year when they come to town Saturday — UW has averaged 52 points per game on its way to an eight-game winning streak over Indiana — a quick look at Indiana’s offensive statistics suggest a different story.On the year, Indiana has the second-most successful offense in the conference behind only Ohio State. They average 43.1 points per game and 527 yards per game — an interesting change of pace for an offense that only managed an average 16 points per game against Wisconsin over their last eight meetings.Responsible for a large chunk of Indiana’s scoring, the passing game has become one of the Hoosiers most potent weapons this season. While sophomore Tre Roberson was named the starting quarterback on day one, sophomore Nate Sudfeld has taken over much of the role and now averages just more than 240 passing yards per game, in addition to the 19 touchdowns he has thrown.Even more dangerous for the Wisconsin defense is Indiana’s receiving corps, which is almost the exact opposite of Wisconsin’s.Many of Wisconsin’s opponents, including Indiana, know that redshirt senior wide reciever Jared Abbrederis is the main focus of Wisconsin’s passing playbook — particularly on deep balls. But Indiana has a number of options when it comes to moving the ball down the field.For redshirt sophomore cornerback Darius Hillary and the rest of the secondary, this has meant a return to the basics this week as they look to shut down one of the better offenses in the conference and minimize potentially costly mistakes.“We just have to stay with our guys. They thrive off the deep ball and so when the ball is in the air, just like our coaches said, we have to be the ones to go up and get it,” Hillary said. “They’ve got a very talented core, and I’m excited to see how that battle goes Saturday.”Four of Indiana’s receivers have caught at least five touchdowns a piece, with 6-foot-3 junior Cody Latimer leading the pack with eight so far this season. Latimer is also averaging nearly 100 receiving yards per game.Usually, Indiana also boasts a nice complementary run game with sophomore Tevin Coleman, who is averaging 106.4 yards per game and more than 7 yards per carry, but Coleman is doubtful after suffering a sprained ankle in last week’s win over Illinois.Instead, Indiana will look to senior Stephen Houston to take over for Coleman, a player that has tallied 12 touchdowns for the Hoosiers over the course of the season. Still, while the Wisconsin defense might be anticipating an Indiana offense that depends a bit more than usual on its passing game, the Wisconsin defense won’t be overlooking Houston either, who — despite having nearly half as many carries — averages nearly 60 yards per game on the ground.“We came to that conclusion [that they might pass more] a little bit,” Hillary said. “But they have another great running back. He’s a downhill runner, who’s pretty big, and he can do some big things. We have to contain him too.”Getting into poll positionIf Wisconsin can keep Indiana’s offense contained Saturday, it’s own offense may be capable of doing some serious damage of its own against Indiana’s defense, which has allowed an average of 37.4 points per game.Currently sitting at No. 22 in the BCS rankings at the start of the week, running up the score against teams like Indiana could become a way for Wisconsin to climb those polls faster — former head coach Bret Bielema has been guilty of doing so against Indiana during his career at Wisconsin — but redshirt senior linebacker Conor O’Neill says that won’t be on their minds as they take the field Saturday.Instead the goal remains to win out and let the cards fall where they may.“We’ve lost two games to two good teams by two points and then a touchdown, so if the BCS wants to take away the chance at a bowl game for that, then so be it,” O’Neill said.  “We are just going to take care of our business on the field Saturday.”last_img read more
