How can videolaparoscopy be used in a peritoneal dialysis programme? (1/796)

BACKGROUND: Recently videolaparoscopy is considered to have a vaster use in surgery due to the undeniable benefits such as low operatory traumatism, quick recovery of canalization, a short stay in the hospital and minor scarring. METHODS: Forty patients were treated with peritoneal dialysis (PD); 15 videolaparoscopic procedures were performed on 13 patients before starting PD and two during the course of PD. The videolaparoscopy procedure was started by inducing pneumoperitoneum after initiation of general anaesthesia through endotracheal intubation. RESULTS: Peritoneal catheter placement was carried out in 11 ESRD patients showing abdominal scars due to previous laparotomies; their abdominal condition precluded safe PC placement using conventional non-laparoscopic procedures with local anaesthesia. Release of adhesions was performed only in two patients. Videolaparoscopy was also used in three patients for elective cholecystectomy; 2/3 underwent concomitant PC insertion. One patient was submitted to cholecystectomy during the course of CAPD; following the procedure we left the peritoneum dry overnight and then we started temporary IPD, using small volumes, avoiding haemodialysis (HD). Regular CAPD was resumed 6 days later. Finally, videolaparoscopy was also used for diagnostic purpose i.e. in one 59-year-old man patient who had a peritoneal catheter obstruction. Repeated rescue attempts using urokinase solution to irrigate the peritoneal catheter had been used in vain attempts prior to the procedure. CONCLUSIONS: Videolaparoscopy proves to be a useful tool in a PD programme. Firstly, it may be used as a technique for catheter implantation, not as a routine procedure but in patients with extensive abdominal scars due to previous laparotomy, i.e. at risk for accidental viscera perforation due to the possibility of adhesions between intestinal loops and parietal peritoneum. Secondly, videolaparoscopy used for abdominal surgery allows the resumption of PD immediately after surgical procedure and thus avoiding HD. Videolaparoscopy is fundamental for diagnosis and rescue of catheter dysfunction and has an integral role in the successful management of these patients in extending catheter function and permitting safe replacement of peritoneal catheter if it becomes necessary. Along with the undeniable advantages, remains the disadvantages that it must be carried out by an expert surgeon in an operating theatre while the patient is under general anaesthesia.  (+info)

The reach and effectiveness of a national mass media-led smoking cessation campaign in The Netherlands. (2/796)

OBJECTIVES: This study examined the reach, effectiveness, and cost-effectiveness of a mass media-led smoking cessation campaign including television shows, a television clinic, a quit line, local group programs, and a comprehensive publicity campaign. METHODS: A random sample of baseline smokers (n = 1338) was interviewed before and after the campaign and at a 10-month follow-up. A nonpretested control group (n = 508) of baseline smokers was incorporated to control for test effects. RESULTS: Most smokers were aware of the campaign, although active participation rates were low. Dose-response relations between exposure and quitting were found. The follow-up point prevalence abstinence rate attributable to the campaign was estimated to be 4.5% after control for test effects and secular trends. The cost per long-term quitter was about $12. CONCLUSIONS: In spite of a massive rise in tobacco promotion expenditures prior to the campaign and the absence of governmental control over the media, the campaign under study may have increased normal cessation rates substantially.  (+info)

Effects of a drug overdose in a television drama on presentations to hospital for self poisoning: time series and questionnaire study. (3/796)

OBJECTIVES: To determine whether a serious paracetamol overdose in the medical television drama Casualty altered the incidence and nature of general hospital presentations for deliberate self poisoning. DESIGN: Interrupted time series analysis of presentations for self poisoning at accident and emergency departments during three week periods before and after the broadcast. Questionnaire responses collected from self poisoning patients during the same periods. SETTING: 49 accident and emergency departments and psychiatric services in United Kingdom collected incidence data; 25 services collected questionnaire data. SUBJECTS: 4403 self poisoning patients; questionnaires completed for 1047. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Change in presentation rates for self poisoning in the three weeks after the broadcast compared with the three weeks before, use of paracetamol and other drugs for self poisoning, and the nature of overdoses in viewers of the broadcast compared with non-viewers. RESULTS: Presentations for self poisoning increased by 17% (95% confidence interval 7% to 28%) in the week after the broadcast and by 9% (0 to 19%) in the second week. Increases in paracetamol overdoses were more marked than increases in non-paracetamol overdoses. Thirty two patients who presented in the week after the broadcast and were interviewed had seen the episode-20% said that it had influenced their decision to take an overdose, and 17% said it had influenced their choice of drug. The use of paracetamol for overdose doubled among viewers of Casualty after the episode (rise of 106%; 28% to 232%). CONCLUSIONS: Broadcast of popular television dramas depicting self poisoning may have a short term influence in terms of increases in hospital presentation for overdose and changes in the choice of drug taken. This raises serious questions about the advisability of the media portraying suicidal behaviour.  (+info)

Health education in television entertainment--Medisch Centrum West: a Dutch drama serial. (4/796)

World-wide a number of groups have sought ways to incorporate health messages into television entertainment like popular drama and soap serials. In the Netherlands, the Heart Foundation incorporated its cardiovascular health message in several episodes of a popular Dutch hospital serial called Medisch Centrum West. To obtain greater insight into the impact of this so-called 'entertainment-education (E & E) strategy', an evaluation study was carried out. Medisch Centrum West was both entertaining and informative at the same time. Although viewers were well aware that the programme included a health message, they did not find it intrusive to their enjoyment of the storyline. It was interesting to learn that fans were more tolerant and positive towards the E & E strategy than non-fans. Age, sex and education level explained only 5% of the variance.  (+info)

Effect of closed circuit television on urban violence. (5/796)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect of city and town centre closed circuit television (CCTV) surveillance on violence in terms of accident and emergency (A&E) department and police assault data. METHODS: A&E department and local police assault data in three centres in Wales (Cardiff, Swansea, and Rhyl) two years before and two years after the installation of CCTV were studied. British Crime Survey and police crime statistics were used as control data. RESULTS: A&E records of 24,442 assault patients and 3228 violent offences recorded by the police were studied. Data from two A&E departments (Swansea (+3%) and Rhyl (+45%)) showed increases in recorded assaults after CCTV installation but a decrease (12%) in the largest centre, Cardiff. There was an overall reduction in town/city centre violence from the A&E department perspective of 1% in the two years after CCTV installation. In contrast, police data demonstrated changes in the opposite direction (-44%, -24%, and +20% respectively) contributing to an overall decrease of 9%. British Crime Survey and police statistics for England and Wales demonstrated no overall change and a 16% increase respectively. CONCLUSIONS: City centre CCTV installation had no obvious influence on levels of assaults recorded in A&E departments. There was a negative relationship between police and A&E recording in all three centres. A&E departments are important and unique sources of information about community violence.  (+info)

Ultrasonic videodensitometric analysis of myocardium in end-stage renal disease treated with haemodialysis. (6/796)

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to investigate videodensitometric parameters of the myocardium, in dialysis patients, who represent a complex pathophysiological model of pressure volume overload, and in essential hypertensive patients with the same level of left ventricular mass. METHODS: We compared a group of male dialysis patients (D) with two groups: hypertensive patients (H) with comparable left ventricular mass and normotensive healthy subjects as controls (C). The groups (n=15 each) were age- (53 +/- 9 years) and gender-matched. Quantitative analysis of echocardiographic digitalized imaging was performed to calculate the mean grey level (MGL) and cyclic variation index (CVI). RESULTS: The haemodialysis patients had a significantly lower CVI compared with hypertensives and controls both for septum (D): -2.5 +/- 17.4% vs (H); 11.8 +/- 17% vs (C); 43.2 +/- 15.4% (P<0.001) and for posterior wall (D): -10.1 +/- 261% vs (H); 14.2 +/- 14.7% vs (C); 46.6 +/- 17.2% (P<0.001). A significant inverse relationship was found between intact parathyroid hormone (iPTH) and CVI. CONCLUSION: Abnormalities of two-dimensional echocardiographic grey level distribution are present in both haemodialysis patients and hypertensive patients, but seem unrelated to the degree of echocardiographic hypertrophy. These videodensitometric myocardial alterations are significantly higher in dialysis patients than in hypertensive patients with the same extent of left ventricular hypertrophy. The iPTH level may play a role in the development of the ultrasonic myocardial alterations, which probably represent an early stage of uraemic cardiomyopathy.  (+info)

Regional ischemia in hypertrophic Langendorff-perfused rat hearts. (7/796)

Myocardial hypertrophy decreases the muscle mass-to-vascularization ratio, thereby changing myocardial perfusion. The effect of these changes on myocardial oxygenation in hypertrophic Langendorff-perfused rat hearts was measured using epimyocardial NADH videofluorimetry, whereby ischemic myocardium displays a high fluorescence intensity. Hypertrophic hearts, in contrast to control hearts, developed ischemic areas during oxygen-saturated Langendorff perfusion. Reoxygenation of control hearts after a hypoxic episode resulted in a swift decrease of fluorescence in a heterogeneous pattern of small, evenly dispersed, highly fluorescent patches. Identical patterns could be evoked by occluding capillaries with microspheres 5.9 micrometer in diameter. Ten seconds after reoxygenation there were no more dysoxic areas, whereas reoxygenation in hypertrophic hearts showed larger ischemic areas that took significantly longer to return to normoxic fluorescence intensities. Hypothesizing that the larger areas originate at a vascular level proximal to the capillary network, we induced hypoxic patterns by embolizing control hearts with microspheres 9.8 and 15 micrometer in diameter. The frequency distribution histograms of these dysoxic surface areas matched those of hypertrophic hearts and differed significantly from those of hearts embolized with 5.9-micrometer microspheres. These results suggest the existence of areas in hypertrophic Langendorff-perfused hearts with suboptimal vascularization originating at the arteriolar and/or arterial level.  (+info)

The impact of television on attitudes towards organ donation--a survey in a German urban population sample. (8/796)

BACKGROUND: The stagnation or decrease in organ donation rates since 1992 in Germany has partly been attributed to the negative impact of reports about organ donation periodically presented by German television between 1992 and 1997. This study was performed to elucidate the impact of the media on the public's attitudes towards organ donation. METHODS: A questionnaire concerning different aspects of organ donation was sent to the parents of pupils of a high school in a German city in 1994 and 1998. RESULTS: In 1994, 940 adults could be identified who had (TV+, n = 546) or had not (TV-, n = 394) followed at least one television discussion about the topic. In 1998, the group consisted of 756 (TV+, n = 443 and TV-, n = 313) adults. The discriminating question was of sufficient strength to reveal significant differences between TV(+) and TV(-) respondents. Contrary to an assumed negative impact of TV, differences between the groups were detectable mainly in questions regarding information, but not in those which dealt with personal fears and concerns. The main results obtained in both surveys were identical. Furthermore, from 1994 to 1998 there was a trend in favour of information and organ donation for TV(+) but not for TV(-) respondents. CONCLUSION: The assumption that TV has had a negative impact on donation rates must be rejected. Therefore, the stagnation/decline in donation rates must be attributed to other factors.  (+info)

Furthermore, relative to those watching less television (,2 h/d), there was a 46% increased risk of all-cause and an 80% increased risk of CVD mortality in those watching ≥4 hours of television per day, which were independent of traditional risk factors such as smoking, blood pressure, cholesterol, and diet, as well as leisure-time exercise and waist circumference.. Insufficient moderate- to vigorous-intensity exercise has long been recognized as a predictor of chronic disease and premature death.1 However, until recently, the relationship between too much sitting and mortality had not been investigated. The HR observed for all-cause ...

A cable television system has a multiplicity of television program sources providing television signals in various predefined television signal formats. The program sources include continuous television sources provided to all users free of charge as well as pay-per-view program sources transmitted to users only upon request. Each television has a multi-standard receiver for receiving television signals in those predefined television signal formats, and is coupled to a transmission medium such as a coaxial cable. A television signal switch transmits the television signals from various ones of the program sources onto the transmission media in assigned respective frequency channels. Hidden behind each television, or elsewhere out of view of the user, is a converter coupling the respective television to the transmission media. The only connection from the converter to the television is a cable connected to the televisions cable or antennae input port. Each converter includes a controller for selecting a
Background Prolonged television (TV) viewing time is unfavourably associated with mortality outcomes, particularly for cardiovascular disease, but the impact on life expectancy has not been quantifi ed. The authors estimate the extent to which TV viewing time reduces life expectancy in Australia, 2008. Methods The authors constructed a life table model that incorporates a previously reported mortality risk associated with TV time. Data were from the Australian Bureau of Statistics and the Australian Diabetes, Obesity and Lifestyle Study, a national population-based observational survey that started in 1999-2000. The authors modelled impacts of changes in population average TV viewing time on life expectancy at birth. Results The amount of TV viewed in Australia in 2008 reduced life expectancy at birth by 1.8 years (95% uncertainty interval (UI): 8.4 days to 3.7 years) for men and 1.5 years (95% UI: 6.8 days to 3.1 years) for women. Compared with persons who watch no TV, those who spend a ...

The finding of narrow arteriolar caliber among females who watched ,1 hour of TV per day differed from that of the MESA and the AusDiab studies, which showed higher levels of TV viewing time to be associated with wider venular caliber in the overall population and in males, respectively. 25,27 Greater time spent in sedentary behaviors such as TV viewing could have potent deleterious effects on biological attributes such as lipoproteins and C-reactive protein. 24,42 However, the reasons for the association of CRAE with TV viewing among females in our study remain speculative. Sex differences have been noted in the associations of TV viewing time with cardiometabolic biomarkers, in which relationships were stronger in females than those in males. 18,43,44 In the ARIC study and subsequent meta-analysis, 5,45 the relationship between retinal vascular caliber and incident coronary heart disease was stronger in females than that in males, and may reflect the greater contribution of small vessel ...
The National Television Violence Study is the most thorough and comprehensive study of violence on television to date. The Study responds to enormous public concern about the harmful effects of television on society. In 1993, Senator Paul Simon of Illinois issues a challenge to the television industry to voluntarily pursue an independent assessment of violence on television. In 1994, the cable television industry accepted Simons challenge by commissioning a prestigious group of media effects researchers from four major universities to conduct a three-year study of TV violence. The project includes an oversight council of representatives from 18 leading public health, legal, medical, research, and entertainment industry policy organizations. Based on the largest and most representative sample of television content ever evaluated by a single scientific study, National Television Violence Study, Volume 2 offers a commentary on the state of violence on American television for viewers, policymakers, the
Thirty-two subjects read continuous text for 2 hours. Half read from a television screen (video condition) and half read from a book. Subjects experienced little nausea or headache in either condition. A small amount of dizziness, fatigue, and eyestrain was produced by reading, but there were no significant differences between the book condition and the video condition on these measures, nor was there a difference in comprehension scores. Video subjects read 28.5% more slowly than book subjects. Possible reasons for this difference are discussed. In the video condition, the presence of proportional horizontal spacing had no effect on reading speed or comprehension. The results suggest that extended reading of continuous text on television screens is certainly feasible. INTRODUCTION. Within the next few decades, people may be able to access much of the published information in the world from their living rooms by using videotex.

For the televisions tested in this study, US market televisions contain significantly greater amounts of bromine and antimony in the plastics comprising the cases than corresponding televisions purchased in Mexico or Brazil indicating the US televisions were designed to be resistant to external ignition. This design characteristic was confirmed as US market televisions also showed much greater resistance to ignition of the casing to an external open flame. It required more than ten times the energy with extended exposure to cause these televisions to ignite and in four out of the six trials the televisions did not achieve sustained ignition. In the two cases where sustained ignition for the US market televisions occurred, it was not the FPD television itself which ignited, but the stand and mounting bracket leading to fire growth. The stands ignited early and provided a larger ignition source for an extended period resulting in the larger fire. These televisions had cases that were resistant to ...

Using national samples of parents, this study found that parent TVV is associated with child TVV across all ages when controlling for media access variables (eg, bedroom television), parent coviewing and time restrictions, parental characteristics, and demographic/household characteristics. Parent TVV had a stronger relationship to child time than parental rules about TVV and coviewing, and this pattern persisted for all of the child age groups. When controlling for all these other factors, among all parents, every hour of parent TVV resulted in an additional 23 minutes of child TVV.. Both the similarities and differences in the effects of contributors to youth TVV on the different age groups are noteworthy. Regardless of child age, parent TVV was the strongest predictor of child TVV. The effects of coviewing and time limits on child TVV differed by child age, suggesting that parenting styles may vary over time and that developmental factors may affect coviewing. Access to bedroom media was not ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Insufficient Physical Activity and Overweight. T2 - Does Caregiver Screen-Viewing Matter?. AU - Lin, Yi Ching. AU - Fung, Xavier C.C.. AU - Tsai, Meng-Che. AU - Strong, Carol. AU - Hsieh, Yi Ping. AU - Lin, Chung Ying. PY - 2019/1/15. Y1 - 2019/1/15. N2 - Physical activity (PA) is essential for childrens health and well-being, yet many children around the world do not meet the recommended PA levels. Screen-viewing behavior is one of the possible factors leading to low levels of PA and being overweight. Although research in Western countries shows that caregivers screen-viewing behavior and rule-setting are associated with their childrens screen-viewing behavior, these results may not be generalizable to East Asian populations. Therefore, the current study proposed two mediation models to investigate whether insufficient physical activity mediates the relationship between childrens screen viewing behavior and overweight status, and whether such screen-viewing behavior mediates ...

Ive been rather behind on my television viewing lately, and I only recently caught up on Selfish, the second episode of the new season of House (please be advised that this post contains significant spoilers for said episode). After watching it, I needed several weeks to ponder it before I could write about it, because it was an awful episode, and it had a whole lot of problems going on with it. I knew I wanted to open up discussion about it here, but had trouble getting a handle on how to begin.. The episode opens with a scene of a skateboarder in an indoor facility, showing off tricks for a group of wheelchair users and seemingly nondisabled adults. Shredding for a Cure, a banner hanging in the facility alerts us. The skateboarder comes to a halt and volunteers to push one of the wheelchair users, who turns out to be her brother, around.. My hackles went up pretty much immediately. House, like seemingly every other show on television, cant wrap its head around the idea that wheelchair ...

This study was inspired by the rise in television targeting toddlers and preverbal infants (e.g., Teletubbies, Baby Mozart). Overall, we investigated if very young children who are in the early stages of language acquisition can learn vocabulary quickly (fast map) from television programs. Using a fast mapping paradigm, this study examined a group (n = 48) of toddlers (15-24 months) and their ability to learn novel words. Utilizing a repeated measures design, we compared childrens ability to learn various novel words in 5 different conditions. These included the presentation and identification of a novel word by an adult speaker via live presentation when the toddler was attending (i.e., joint reference), an adult via live presentation when the toddler was not attending, an adult speaker on television, and an edited clip from a childrens television program (Teletubbies). Overall, the toddlers were most successful in learning novel words in the joint reference condition. They were significantly ...

A Chinese detergent maker has apologised for a television advertisement that many in China and around the world called racist, but also blamed the media for causing the public outcry.
By ∼2.5 years of age, children are able to comprehend and learn from age-appropriate, child-directed television programs, although comprehension of more complex television programming continues to increase at least up to ∼12 years of age.15 Once comprehension is established, television begins to influence child knowledge and, therefore, cognitive development more generally. This influence can be both positive and negative. On the positive side, numerous evaluations of preschool educational television programs such as "Sesame Street" have found a positive impact on vocabulary, literacy, social behavior, and academic knowledge.16 Educational television viewing is associated with greater school readiness and increased academic performance that is traceable through high school.17,18 There is little question from a large amount of research that educational television has a positive impact on cognitive development.. Beyond the preschool years, however, most television watched by children is ...

Underlying concern for the level of violence in society, often brought into focus by particular historical events, has lead authorities in several countries to set up investigative bodies to examine the portrayal of violence on television. In 1969 the U.S. Surgeon General was given the task of exploring evidence of a link between television and subsequent aggression. The research that was a product of this inquiry attempted to find a "scientific" answer to the issue of whether television violence causes aggressive behavior, in much the way an earlier investigation had examined the link between cigarettes and lung cancer. The conclusions of the report were equivocal and while some saw this as a reflecting vested interests in the membership of the committee, research over the following 20 years has not silenced the debate. While in 1985 the American Psychological Association stated a belief that the overwhelming weight of evidence supports a causal relation, there is not unanimity even among ...

There is a positive correlation between obesity and television watching in adults and children. And, television watching, controlling for current obesity, is a predictor of future obesity. Almost half of all children watch 3 or more hours of television each day. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children watch no more than 1-2 hours each day.. Families will be randomized to one of two conditions. Half the families will be taught to use the TV Allowance to reduce their childs TV and computer use by one-half over a six month period and the other half will use the device to monitor TV watching (control group). This study uses TV Allowance units to monitor home television watching, video game playing, and computer use. The TV Allowance can also be used to limit the amount of TV and computer use by programming it to allow a specific number of hours for each family member. Heights, weights, food intake, and physical activity will be measured at baseline and every six months. The ...
Several of the popular radio soap operas made the transition to television, with many new ones created for the medium which would eventually eclipse radio in audience numbers. As with their radio predecessors, these shows were programmed for the daytime hours and featured commercials aimed at the housewife, that "drudge" Friedan described as the stereotype of the post-war American culture. Daytime hours on television also included game and talk/advice shows, whose rhetorical strategies assumed womens capacity as caretaker of the familys economic and emotional resources. The make-up of daytime programming on the broadcast networks has stayed remarkably the same over the years, although soap opera plots seem to take into account the presence of male viewers (not only making male characters more important, but mixing action genre ingredients into the narratives). Perhaps even more significantly as programming strategy, game shows have given way on the schedule to talk shows. This latter trend ...
By Rich Heldenfels, The Akron Beacon Journal, Ohio Aug. 6--Sex Study. The Parents Television Council, long a critic of sex and violence on television, is now advocating some sex on TV. As long as the people doing it are married to each other. The PTCs latest study, Happily Never After, complains that "sex in the context of marriage is either non-existent on prime-time broadcast television, or is depicted as burdensome rather than as an expression of love and commitment. "By contrast, extra-marital or adulterous sexual relationships are depicted with greater frequency and overwhelmingly, as a positive experience," the report says. "Across the broadcast networks, verbal references to nonmarital sex outnumbered references to sex in the context of marriage by nearly 3 to 1.". ABC had the most references to married sex, but "many of the references were negative," PTC said. -- More PTC. PTC monitored scripted prime-time programming on ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC and The CW for four weeks in September-October ...

These portrayals of Ralph and Alice (Honeymooners), Wilma and Fred (Flintstones), and even Sheldon and Amy (Big Bang Theory) have skewed how we interact with each other on a massive scale. Even the most difficult of characters can love, and the most plain girl, can find a man. Though we know that a womans body changes with age and child birth, on television women connect with the mother character, and resentment ensues when the woman undresses and has no stretch marks. As does the mind of the man to think " well the lady on television doesnt look that way, maybe my wife isnt trying enough", though its sounds irrational to think that way, its exactly what we do.

Ethnic television is a more important media platform for some ethnic groups in America than others. It is especially important for Hispanics and Arab Americans.
This meta-analysis shows that interventions to reduce childrens screen time have a small but statistically significant effect after the intervention and a large statistically significant effect during the intervention. Although studies included in the meta-analysis were heterogeneous, there was variability greater than would be expected by chance, no significant moderators were identified to explain this variability. It is possible that because of the number of studies included in the analysis, there was insufficient power to detect effect moderators. It also is possible that including studies with varied primary outcomes impacted the ability to detect moderators. The decision to include all interventions that targeted screen time instead of interventions that only targeted screen time is worthy of further discussion. We hypothesized that the majority of interventions, especially those developed earlier, were developed to address childhood obesity using screen-time reduction as a mechanism to ...

For those of us that work in childrens media, theres nothing like finding a fresh, data filled report.. "Zero to Eight Childrens Media Use in America 2013" is Vicki Rideouts latest in a series of reports commissioned by Common Sense Media. Having followed Vickys work for more than a decade, I asked her for an overview of her findings.. The first key finding is this: Television and video game use is down for children compared to just two years ago. (Yes, down, not up!) In addition, overall screen media use is down compared to what was recorded just two years ago.. Television viewing in the bedroom is also down by a sizable amount. As with the television and video game drop Vicky says "Id like to look back on these data points from a future report to see if this is a bump or a trend." This finding does beg some additional questions that cannot be answered through the report, like has there been a drop in the number of televisions owned in the home? Has the drop in television viewing in the ...

In a signal converting apparatus such as one including demodulation and remodulation apparatus for converting RF cable carriers to RF carriers having frequencies corresponding to broadcast frequencies, a character generator is coupled to the tuning selector to generate characters representative of the channel number of the selected cable carrier. The character representative signals are combined with the demodulated base-band signals before remodulation. As a result, the television receiver coupled to the cable converter will produce an on-screen display of the channel number of the selected cable channel. Similar apparatus may be employed to identify a video cassette recorder or video disc player as the source of television signals on the screen of a television receiver.

Television is a medium that transmits messages to mass audiences daily. African American adolescents view more television than any other demographic group. Historically a disparity in educational achievement has existed among African American students and White students, but there are few studies that have examined the impact of television on this disparity.; This study explores the amount of television that is viewed by African American adolescents and its relation to their academic achievement and self-concept. The purpose of the study is to determine whether a significant correlation exists between television viewing and academic success of African American high school students and their self-concept. The results compare the variables of gender, socio-economic status, and mainstream viewing versus minority-oriented viewing in the correlation findings ...

Lisa Maksimovic is a reporter and presenter for ABC News in Melbourne. This is her account of a day covering the fires in the Kilmore area, north of Melbourne.. Driving up the Hume Freeway, the plumes of grey smoke in the distance became an orange haze as we neared the Kilmore turn-off. We were the replacement team, changing over with an ABC crew that had been out at the fire ground since 4:00am. To our right over the freeway an aggressive grassfire looked like it was racing towards a residential block at Wallan. But without a camera, we were powerless to capture what was going on and had no choice but to keep going. I checked my phone, a new emergency warning had just been issued for the area and a second later came confirmation. CFA crews with lights and sirens blaring raced past us in the opposite direction. In case we thought the fire danger was past, it was a reminder of just how erratic and unpredictable the situation still was. Multiple blazes surrounded the area and CFA warnings and ...

In an attempt to expand the use of public television programs, the Public Television Library, a department of the Public Broadcasting Service, began a program whereby 3/4-inch videocassettes were placed in a public library. The 3/4-inch videocassette resembled a book; the library was a traditional repository for reference material; thus the title "Have You Watched a Book Today?" Or watchabook. The experiment was to be center in the Monroe (Indiana) County Public Library where 141 videocassettes were selected, but interest grew so rapidly that within two months the experiment had expanded to three additional libraries. Some of the conclusions of the experiment were that the technical reliability and versatility of the videocassette medium is a natural for use in a one-to-one environment in a service oriented organization; the videocassette concept is valuable in introducing library patrons to new library audiovisual services and is particularly helpful in capturing the attention of young patrons; ...
Scott Traylor: Congratulations on the upcoming 40th anniversary of Sesame Street. Its amazing to think how far the Sesame Street show has come, a show that is often called the "educational television standard." When you look at expanding into other mediums, how do you think you will be applying that same Sesame philosophy?. Gary Knell: Well the show was invented 40 years ago and has now won more Emmy Awards than any television show in history. Recently we were awarded the lifetime achievement award at the Emmys with a standing ovation from, I think, everyone who ever worked in daytime television. But we know today that children are using applications that werent invented back when we started the show, and media and technology is getting faster, smaller, and cheaper. So its a world of on demand media, portability, those are places that we have to be because those are the access points to where kids are going to find Sesame Street. This was the first year we have ever seen more people and more ...

As our TV screens have got flatter, our children have got fatter. There is no getting away from it! Screen-based activities play a central role in our childrens lives. At a very young age, they have unparalleled access to television screens, computers, game consoles and a host of mobile devices. Among 5 to 11 year-olds, TV is still the most consumed medium, with gaming coming second.. At the same time, childhood obesity is not just a national, but a global health worry. In 2014/15 a third of 11 year-old children in England were overweight and a fifth were obese.. Research has repeatedly reported a link between TV viewing and obesity, but although some has hinted at the idea that a television in a childs bedroom might exacerbate the problem, the evidence here has been rather contradictory. Other plausible pathways could include eating unhealthy snacks whilst watching TV, exposure to food advertising and insufficient and poor quality sleep.. Using information from the Millennium Cohort Study ...
Every adult who tries to instill in children responsible attitudes towards firearms must not only teach positive lessons, but must overcome the many negative lessons taught by Americas major television networks and movie industry.. Before completing sixth grade, the average American child watches 8,000 homicides and 100,000 acts of violence on television. A look at the movie advertisement page of any major newspaper shows that cinematic entertainment is no better. At least a quarter of the movie advertising depicts someone poised to kill.. Even television shows that do not wallow in violence are still violent. For example, the heroes of the Adam 12 television series, the friendly policemen Officers Reed and Malloy, killed more people than an average SWAT team member kills in an entire career.. Over the last two decades, a large body of literature has linked exposure to violent television with increased physical aggressiveness among children, and to later violent criminal behavior.. One of the ...
In the end all of these announcements are still announcements but what they signal is indefatigable - television screens can no longer be viewed as just technology but as the conduit for an increasingly complex dialogue between media and content owners, producers, users, viewers, technology makers, brand owners and their agencies. And, if all the talk is right, the traditional television industry is showing all the signs of being undone by technology and its users just as the music industry was late last century.. ...
The way we present television news hasnt changed in 30 years, says Stephen Marshall, director of the Canadian Channel Zero. Now a media revolution is under way and TV stations must rise to the challenge to begin with, Why do so many young people watch MTV and not the news? Take a look. Dont get mad at it. Of course its banal and vapid. So the challenge is to say, Okay, fine. Well we have the content. How do we merge these together? RIGHT NOW, we live in an era when we are facing a paradigm shift in television. Arthur Schlesinger, the American historian, talks about 30-year cycles of history. Understanding these 30-year cycles is very important. The present paradigm in broadcast television is one that peaked in the eighties and I believe it has reached its nadir. Its anchor driven. During the Vietnam war, probably the time when television had its biggest impact on the public (at least in the sense of public reaction to what was shown), anchors were very important. The whole culture of ...

Researchers at the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University observed little effect of health behaviors, including eating habits, television viewing, and physical activity, on change in weight among children.
Filed: 26/08/2006). The full horror of Natascha Kampuschs eight-year kidnap ordeal became clearer yesterday as her mother said that the 18-year-old girl weighed less now than when she was abducted. Brigitte Sirny said she had been shopping for size 6 clothes for her daughter whose weight had dropped to 6st 6lb despite having grown to 5ft 3in. She said her daughter had nothing except for an orange dress she was wearing when she escaped her master. Natascha has developed a formal, slightly stilted high-German accent similar to that of a radio presenter. She is intelligent and articulate and uses sophisticated language to express what remain very childish thoughts. advertisement During her years locked in an underground cell by her captor, Wolfgang Priklopil, the young girl was able to listen to a radio set, which her kidnapper controlled via a timer switch outside her cell, as well as a select number of childrens television programmes that he recorded for her. Air was pumped in through a ...

In a sub-group of children, activity was measured using a monitor worn around the waist.. When analysing the findings the researchers attempted to account for the effects of confounding factors such as socioeconomic status, physical activity and pubertal status.. What were the basic results?. The analysis focused on the 4,495 children (2,337 girls and 2,158 boys) who had screen time data, all physical measurements and a fasting blood sample. More than 2,000 children had physical activity data collected from the waist monitor.. The most commonly reported screen time duration was one hour or less (37%), with 18% reporting more than three hours and 4% reporting no screen time at all.. Boys were more likely to have more than three hours of screen time a day, 22% compared to 14% of girls.. Differences were seen between ethnic groups, a higher proportion of black African-Caribbean children (23%) had more than three hours of daily screen time compared with white Europeans (16%) and South Asians ...
Living in what some have dubbed the "New Golden Age of Television", many of us are spending our evenings on the couch, binge-watching one of the multitude of critically-acclaimed shows that light up our televisions, tablets, and phones on demand. Its no surprise that in the era of Mad Men, Breaking Bad, and The Walking Dead, we find more and more excuses to spend an evening glued to the screen. But what is the long term cost? Could the new golden age of television spell trouble for us in our golden years?. Parents have long been warned of the "brain rotting" danger of letting their children spend too much time beneath the glow of a television set. In one of the first studies to use modern neuroimaging techniques to examine the neurological effects of TV viewing habits, researchers at Tohaku University in Japan recently linked high levels of television viewing in childhood with poor cognitive performance and increases in orbitofrontal cortical thickness. Readers should note that increased ...

Saga in particular, might be one of my favourite new characters to emerge on television as well. I loved how this show never condescended or went overboard in explaining to us that she had Aspergers. It was moments like her inability to lie (even during a crucial moment in the finale) to her colleagues, her attitudes towards men and sex that highlighted it nicely. As for Martin - I found him a wonderfully complex man, haunted by his past misdeeds and suffering the consequences for them as well with his fragile relationships with his son, August and second wife, Mette. If I had only one gripe with this series is why did BBC4 air it in double bills? It almost felt like it barely on television at all despite producing ten excellent episodes. At least we have a second series to look forward to next year ...
If Murphy Browns breast cancer proves to be as inconvenient as the baby she had five years ago, maybe itll simply vanish after three episodes. Just a perverse thought, as Murphy Brown creaks into its 10th season tonight (7:30 on Channel 5) with a new time period, a new set and a curious choice for comedy story material. [...] the subject is humanized, and useful information is imparted. Regalbuto playing with prosthetics in a doctors office is worth inclusion in any Murphy Brown time capsule. The breast cancer story arc, by the way, is timed for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, and there will be other programs about breast cancer. Searching for the Causes of Breast Cancer is about eight Bay Area women and the possibility that theres an environmental link to breast cancer.

Some people who watch more television than their peers are at increased risk for injuries, new University of Pittsburgh study finds.. The more hours young adults spend watching television each day, the greater the likelihood that theyll have a higher body mass index and bigger waist circumference, a 15-year analysis by the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health revealed.. The association did not hold in later years, indicating that young adulthood is an important time to intervene and promote less television viewing, according to the research published online in the journal SAGE Open.. "We were quite surprised to find that television viewing was associated with subsequent obesity for young adults, but not for the middle-aged," said lead author Anthony Fabio, Ph.D., M.P.H., assistant professor of epidemiology at Pitt Public Health. "This suggests that middle-aged adults may differ from young adults in how they respond to the influence of TV viewing.". Dr. Fabio and his ...

This study investigated adult views on screen time restrictions for children, and the association with adults own screen time behaviour. Associations were explored in the entire adult sample, and specific adult groups (men, women, parents, non-parents). Findings showed that most adults think it is appropriate to restrict childrens screen time to ≤ 2 h/day but few adults themselves adhered to ≤ 2 h/day of leisure-related screen time. Similar studies [8, 15] have shown that although parents are generally well informed about the negative impacts of high screen use and the need to restrict screen time in children, many are high screen users themselves. An Australian study [16] found that parents who did not incorporate their knowledge and awareness about healthy behaviour into their daily lives attributed their failure to challenges and barriers, such as lack of time and pressure from their children as a result of TV advertising and child peer pressure. Several studies [17-19] have shown that ...
This study aimed at analyzing media inclusion of the deaf community through Kenya Sign language during television newscasts. In 2006, the UN General Assembly adopted the Convention on Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) which recommended sign language interpreters to be included in all television newscasts and Kenya ratified this convention in 2008.Consequently, sign language in television newscasts was made a requirement for all television stations, something that the media in Kenya has not been able to fully comply with, even after the taking effect of the programming code for Free-to-Air radio and television in July 2016. An evaluative approach was employed to assess the current situation in terms of what measures have been put in place to ensure the deaf are able to effectively follow television newscasts, why some television channels have not been able to incorporate sign language in their newscasts and the challenges that have been experienced by those that have incorporated sign ...
Ridder, Rigney, Lighthizer OPT 6122 Optometry Project 1 Correlation between viewing distance and asthenopia associated with viewing of three-dimensional televisions Erin Ridder*, Bonnie Rigney*, Nathan Lighthizer† Word count: 1,797 Three figures Four tables Submitted for initial review: 4/20/2012 Submitted for final review: 7/27/2012 ABSTRACT Introduction The goal of this study was to determine if a correlation exists between viewing distance and asthenopia symptoms. Asthenopia symptoms may include blurred vision, headache, tiredness, soreness, and pain concentrated around the eyes. We will be using active shutter technology, which is most commonly used for 3D televisions. Manufacturers of 3D televisions list the optimum viewing distance, which is close in relation to normal television viewing. We hypothesize that more subjects will have asthenopic symptoms while viewing at a shorter viewing distance, due to the greater dissociation between accommodation and convergence. Methods After filling ...
Screen time activities (e.g., television, computers, video games) have been linked to several negative health outcomes among young people. In order to develop evidence-based interventions to reduce screen time, the factors that influence the behavior need to be better understood. High neighborhood disorder, which may encourage young people to stay indoors where screen time activities are readily available, is one potential factor to consider. Results are based on 15,917 youth in grades 6-10 (aged 10-16 years old) who participated in the Canadian 2009/10 Health Behaviour in School-aged Children Survey (HBSC). Total hours per week of television, video games, and computer use were reported by the participating students in the HBSC student questionnaire. Ten items of neighborhood disorder including safety, neighbors taking advantage, drugs/drinking in public, ethnic tensions, gangs, crime, conditions of buildings/grounds, abandoned buildings, litter, and graffiti were measured using the HBSC student
Common Sense Media defines digital drama as: ...the everyday tiffs and disputes that occur between friends or acquaintances online or via text. Note: Unlike cyberbullying, which involves repeated digital harassment toward someone, drama is broader and more nuanced. That being said, kids and teens sometimes use the term drama to distance themselves from emotionally difficult behavior. Digital drama can still feel very real to students, lead to hurt feelings, and even damage friendships. In some cases, digital drama can escalate into an offline fight - either verbal or physical. (From: Common Sense Media Cyberbullying & Digital Drama). Read the New York Times article Bullying as True Drama by Danah Boyd and Alice Marwick. In an excerpt from this article the authors conclude that:. Teenagers say drama when they want to diminish the importance of something. Repeatedly, teenagers would refer to something as "just stupid drama," "something girls do," or "so high school." We learned that drama can ...
The end. Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-joo is over. Done. I need to get my head around it. It was great to be able to summarise such a funny and cute drama, this drama made me smile so many times and I cant help but loving Bok-joo and Joon-hung more and more. Will definitely miss the unique humour in this drama and the heartwarming scenes. Highly recommend this drama if someone is after a sweet, school setting drama and has great characters. Not to mention, the amazing and heart-wrenching scenes between Bok-joo and her father. If romance is not your jam then this drama also has a strong "family" genre and "comedy" too. Give it a try, this drama is hard to hate and slightly addicting, there is slightly to much cheese in the drama but I cant fault it, the world is too depressing recently and we do need the extra happiness from other stuff, i.e. from dramas.. The drama beautifully touches on topics like first love, romance, break-ups, depression, friendship, rivalry and family conflicts. It ...

Nelson Mandela died on the 5th December 2013. How will we remember this man of immense stature? This man who truly loved his people, his country - and sport! How did he change my life and career and how will his legacy continue to do so for me and many others?. I grew up and completed my medical studies in the privileged, white South Africa of the 1970s and 1980s, while political prisoner number 46664, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was in solitary confinement on Robben Island, just off the west coast of Cape Town. He was found guilty of high treason and jailed for life in 1962, before I was born. This was after he launched Umkhonto we Sizwe, the military wing of the African National Congress (ANC) in response to the banning of this organization by the South African white minority government at the time. I remember his name mentioned on television, mainly in the context of terrorism, protests, anti-apartheid activists and a growing chorus of international leaders calling for his release.
