Happy Thursday! The weekend is almost here and I can’t wait! I’ve been so tired all week. It feels as if I’m still playing catch-up with that one damn hour we lost. But on the bright side, I get to enjoy a bit of the sun…
Now, on to some interesting stories that caught my eye…
According to this article, unhappy children “end up unwell”. It seems that children who have been described as “miserable” or “unhappy” by teachers were five times more likely to be off work due to ill-health when middle aged.
“Children who are unhappy and disinterested in school often come from households where parents are disinterested and there is a lot of deprivation.
In another study, it was revealed that social networking sites such as facebook can be harmful to your health because they reduce levels of face-to-face contact. What do you think?
Did you know that toddlers who use gestures often develop better vocabularies? Using gestures allow children to use their hands in order to express meanings that they haven’t formed the words to.
And finally, have you ever sent an email you regretted sending later? If this has happened to you, you should head on over to the Official Gmail Blog.
Gmail can’t always prevent you from sending messages you might later regret, but today we’re launching a new Labs feature I wrote called Mail Goggles which may help.
When you enable Mail Goggles, it will check that you’re really sure you want to send that late night Friday email. And what better way to check than by making you solve a few simple math problems after you click send to verify you’re in the right state of mind?
That’s right ladies…MATH!! LOL! Have you ever sent an email you later regretted?
