News story: Drive to ensure all children can swim by end of primary school

first_img Swimming is great fun and helps children to stay fit and healthy. But swimming at school also teaches children vital skills on how to stay safe in and around water. We want every child to be a confident swimmer by the time they leave primary school. By funding extra lessons for the pupils that need it most, providing extra training for our teachers and working with our independent schools to offer access to their pools and expertise, we can help children stay safe and learn to love swimming. using the PE and Sport Premium for extra lessons for children who have not yet met the national curriculum expectation after core swimming lessons, and extra training for teachers on water safety and swimming techniques through courses provided by Swim England; extra guidance, provided by Swim England, will be available to help schools deliver safe, fun and effective swimming lessons; and a drive to boost partnerships with independent schools to offer the use of facilities, coaching and other forms of support to schools in their area. Children and Families Minister Nadhim Zahawi said: Julie Robinson, Independent Schools Council general secretary, said: We are committed to ensuring that every child who leaves primary school is able to swim. This plan will support schools and the sport sector to get more children swimming confidently and learn water safety. Since my competitive days I’ve been championing the need for all children to be taught swimming and water safety at primary school. Along with Swim England and the Swim Group, we have been working to raise awareness of the issues and provide support for all those involved in the delivery of curriculum swimming and water safety. Ensuring our children are able to enjoy the water safely is everyone’s responsibility. That is why it’s great to hear the government is raising awareness of the issue and pledging its support. We want everyone – schools, parents, lesson providers, decision makers – to do likewise and pledge to support schools to achieve our joint vision of every child having a full knowledge about water safety and learning how to swim by the time they leave primary school. Primary schools in England are set to receive extra support and improved guidance to help make sure all children can swim confidently and know how to stay safe in and around water.Working in partnership with Swim England, the Department for Education and Department for Digital, Culture Media and Sport have today (Thursday 25 October) announced extra help for schools to make sure every child knows how to swim and be safe in and around water by the end of primary school, supported by the £320 million PE and Sport Premium.To coincide with the announcement, Children and Families Minister Nadhim Zahawi and Sports Minister Tracey Crouch have also backed a pledge by Swim England – signed by the likes of British Olympic swimmer Steve Parry – calling on teachers and parents to do all they can to ensure children are taught swimming and water safety at primary school.The extra support will help deliver the government’s sport strategy ‘Sporting Future’, which committed to ensuring that every child leaves primary school able to swim. It includes:center_img The measures announced today follow a government-backed review of swimming and water safety in primary schools, which found that swimming standards vary in schools, despite being compulsory on the national curriculum. Following its recommendations, the government is working with Swim England to provide extra guidance to help schools deliver safe, fun and effective swimming lessons.Steve Parry, Olympic bronze medallist and Chair of the Swimming and Water Safety Review Group, said: Today’s announcement is part of a drive to tackle childhood obesity and help children to lead healthy, active lives, with more than £1 billion invested in schools through the PE and Sport Premium to improve PE and sport since 2013.It comes after the Education Secretary announced a cross-government school sport and activity action plan that will consider ways to ensure all children have access to quality, protected PE and sport sessions during the school week and opportunities to be physically active throughout the school day. The action plan will be launched in spring 2019. Tracey Crouch, Minister for Sport and Civil Society, said: We completely agree that all primary age pupils should learn to swim – it is a basic life skill. Many independent schools with swimming pools are already working in partnership with state schools and the wider community to ensure others have the opportunity to benefit. There is much goodwill from schools fortunate to have facilities that may be in short supply locally, and the Schools Together website features plenty of examples of partnership working. Raising awareness of partnerships and encouraging more of this good work helps state schools and independent schools develop mutually beneficial programmes, which provide education and development opportunities to all pupils and staff involved. Swimming is a vital life skill that is proven to boost both physical and mental wellbeing.last_img read more

Cowboys don’t need Ezekiel Elliott, Titans should bench Marcus Mariota and more Week 2 preseason overreactions

first_imgWeek 2 of the 2019 NFL preseason doesn’t come with the same hype of Week 1, but there are still plenty of storylines coming out of the weekend’s game results — most of which tend to be overblown. It didn’t take long for the buzz of the openers to abate when teams added a dose of reality to the situations.Here’s making sense of the latest fallout from games that don’t count, as Sporting News once again examines the greatest overreactions. 3. Case Keenum has shut the door on the Redskins quarterback job.Colt McCoy is having more issues with his leg injury, making Keenum the default favorite to start Week 1 (which he already was when the team traded for him as a bridge QB option with Alex Smith shelved). Now it comes down to Keenum and rookie first-rounder Dwayne Haskins.​Haskins rebounded nicely from his rough, two-interception debut against Cleveland to look more comfortable against Cincinnati, going 7-of-14 for 114 yards and a TD, averaging 8.1 yards per attempt and rating a hearty 101.5. Keenum, meanwhile, continued to look ho-hum (3-of-7, 52 yards).Washington’s best argument is more anti-Haskins — that he’s not quite ready to be thrown in the fire — than it is pro-Keenum. Should Keenum fail to play well in the critical third preseason game in Atlanta, and should Haskins deliver with more improvement, coach Jay Gruden might be convinced the rookie gives Washington its best chance to win games early in the season.4. The Seahawks’ passing offense is in trouble without Doug Baldwin.Rookie D.K. Metcalf is having knee surgery, making his status for Week 1 cloudy. He didn’t play against the Vikings, and the Seahawks didn’t have many receiving highlights.But Seattle has been using the preseason as a tune-up for its run-heavy offense more so than its passing game. In that regard, Chris Carson has proved worthy of being both the lead back and the preferred passing-down option over Rashaad Penny.Also, when have so-called limitations at wideout hurt Russell Wilson? Tyler Lockett is being kept under wraps as the new No. 1, adding key possession slot duties to his big-play habits. Jaron Brown and David Moore have been used well by Wilson when needed, too.Metcalf can be special working opposite Lockett, but while that may be on delay, the Seahawks have plenty to help Wilson get the job done downfield. 2019 NFL PREDICTIONS:Standings, playoff projections, Super Bowl pick1. The Cowboys don’t need Ezekiel Elliott after seeing what rookie Tony Pollard can do.The rookie from Memphis didn’t treat his trip to Honolulu as a vacation. Pollard was all business running against the Rams’ backups, and business was good. He had two chunk runs and a touchdown as part of 42 yards rushing on five carries. He also added a reception.Around the same time, regardless of whether the team was trying to send a subtle hint to Elliott that he better return soon, Zeke reportedly was leaving Cabo to return to Dallas.Pollard is a talented back who will have a key role mixing in behind Elliott, and for that role, he’s looking great. But remember he shared time in college with Rams rookie Darrell Henderson; there’s no guarantee Pollard would hold up with the massive volume Elliott handles. There’s also too much in the Cowboys offense that’s Elliott-specific.But if Elliott returns soon, it looks like a losing situation for the Cowboys will become a win-win.MORE: Predicting how much Zeke will be paid2. The Titans should consider benching Marcus Mariota in favor of Ryan Tannehill.Titans coach Mike Vrabel has not publicly indicated there is a quarterback controversy in Tennessee. Yet there’s a perception that Tannehill can push Mariota given some of the 2015 first-rounder’s struggles.But the biggest thing that has hurt Mariota in his effort to earn a contract extension is health. And so far in 2019, he has looked good and has outplayed Tannehill in his short outings.With Corey Davis in Year 3, Delanie Walker back healthy, Adam Humphries now in the slot, Dion Lewis still out of the backfield and rookie A.J. Brown set to be in the mix soon, this is Mariota’s best receiving corps yet. This is a critical year for Mariota’s future with the Titans, but the only way to figure out if he can remain the franchise QB is to play him.Tannehill already hit his ceiling in Miami, and we know it’s much lower than that of Mariota. 8. Taysom Hill is Saints’ best backup — to both Alvin Kamara and Drew Brees.The love affair with the speedy quarterback/running back continues in New Orleans. The game against the Chargers turned into the Taysom Hill Show, as he lit it up both passing (11-of-15, 136 yards, 2 TDs, 140.6 rating) and rushing (5 carries for 53 yards to lead the team).Hill already has his role on designed runs behind Kamara and now Latavius Murray, often out of the direct snaps Brees would take. But some think he might be a better backup QB than Teddy Bridgewater, who picked a bad time to struggle (5-of-12, 40 yards, INT) in LA.Brees, though, is in great shape. He remains extremely durable, and he is not hanging it up soon. So the Saints can have some fun with their QB usage in the preseason. Hill, who turns 29 this week, is too valuable as a return man and gadget player to preserve him as a true No. 2. 5. The Patriots’ rushing offense is turning to rookie Damien Harris.With no Sony Michel or James White against the Titans, the rookie from Alabama dominated touches and was productive. Harris rushed 14 times for 80 yards, including a 20 yard burst. He also showed his well-rounded skills with four catches for 23 yards.There’s reason to believe Harris will be busy in New England because of Michel’s durability issues, but assuming anything about the Patriots’ backfield over the years has proved to be a mistake.White is locked into a key receiving role, which is more critical now for the Patriots given their concerns at wide receiver. The team could either roll with Michel as the early-down power guy while making Harris a backup to both backs, or it could roll with a three-man committee.Anything is possible, but Harris just gave the Patriots’ offensive coaches a little more to consider.MORE: Ranking the NFL’s best rivalries in 20196. Jets are playing it too safe with Le’Veon Bell.Bell won’t play at all in the preseason, and it’s not because he has helmet issues with his new non-Steelers team (sorry, AB). Coach Adam Gase is wise not to risk the focal point of his running game (and offense at large) in meaningless action.Bell doesn’t need to be on the field to prove he’s committed to New York’s cause. After his time off last season, he will hit this season running with the freshest of legs to handle a high volume of touches.7. Cam Newton and Aaron Rodgers need to play.Newton knows Norv Turner’s offense and has been getting plenty of intense work in practice. He is also trying to avoid overworking his recovering shoulder with the intent of it being close to full strength for the real Week 1. Besides, in the meantime, the Panthers are figuring out that Kyle Allen remains the better insurance policy for Newton (for now) over rookie Will Grier.Rodgers didn’t play against the Ravens after experiencing some tightness in his back. The Packers don’t need to rush him out there against the Raiders in Week 3 should he not feel like his loose self come Thursday night.The length of the preseason preaches precaution above all else.MORE: NFL quarterback rankings for 2019last_img read more

Scientific Institutions Engage in Leftist Advocacy

first_imgFor an enterprise supposedly as unpolitical and bias-free as science classically is supposed to be, conservatism is surprisingly rare.Since we last reported the leftist bias in scientific institutions (Jan 19, 2012), has there been any shift to the right?  any penitence for embracing and promoting one political party?  No; it has gotten worse.   Here are just a few of the most egregious examples in recent days.  These not only state leftist positions, but openly advocate them.Anti-Israel:  The only redeeming feature of this example is that at least Science magazine published a protest letter by John R. Cohn of Thomas Jefferson University.  The Science May 18 cover story was a special feature on “Human Conflict.”  Out of all the possible pictures of human conflict imaginable, what did the editors of Science choose?  It was a photo of a bombed-out building attributed to the Israeli Defense forces.  Cohn’s letter, published two months later, accused the editors of politicizing science:I am writing in reaction to the cover photo and accompanying caption selected for the 18 May special issue on Human Conflict. It seems disingenuous to claim that of all the world’s conflicts, a building identified as destroyed by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) was “not [chosen] for any political message or endorsement.” Nobody eschews war more than Israelis, who, unfortunately, also know the consequences.If the editors wanted striking visual impact and gruesome evidence of inhumanity, there were better choices: the killing fields of Cambodia, the destruction of the World Trade Center, Rwanda, Dresden, Hiroshima, Bataan, Darfur, Armenia, Normandy, Auschwitz… unfortunately, the list of greater carnage is nearly endless.By identifying the IDF as perpetrators, the caption undermined the photo’s role as a generic illustration of the consequences of conflict. Indeed, there was no need to identify the details. They were a distraction. The photo no longer represented abstract human violence, but rather one more illustration of Israel, taken out of context. Portraying Israel as the aggressor obscures the fact that the country is trying to defend itself against decades of assaults provoked by ethnic hostility—attacks still taking place. That is politicized science, which serves to encourage—not discourage—conflict.Scientists advising Obama:  What should a science news site have to do with presidential politics?  Nothing, really.  But PhysOrg published the views of two UK scientists taking it upon themselves to act as his campaign advisors: “Obama needs to show Americans he’s still ‘one of them’,” the headline reads, followed by PhysOrg’s summary, “To win a second term in office, President Obama needs to persuade voters that he is still one of them – and recapture some of the charisma that help [sic] propel him to the top four years ago.”  No such advice was found anywhere on PhysOrg advising Romney how to win.Scientists advocating for leftist NGO’s:  It is common knowledge that environmental groups, particularly non-governmental agencies (NGOs) such as the Sierra Club, are predominantly (though not exclusively) leftist in ideology – particularly those lobbying for government intervention in private property rights and action against global warming.  Another PhysOrg article advocated this in its headline: “Environmental groups should pool efforts to reach the public.”  One would think a science news site would stick to the facts about the environment, not provide advice on how to sway public opinion.Unhealthy theists:  Another prominent science news site promulgated a highly questionable psychological study that materialists are healthier – questionable because such studies are loaded with untestable variables.  In “Mind Vs. Body? Dualist Beliefs Linked With Less Concern for Healthy Behaviors,” Science Daily uncritically promoted the idea that those who believe the mind is separate from the brain are likely to engage in unhealthy behavior, calling the research “findings” instead of suggestions or opinions.  Without doubt, hard-core secular Darwinists are likely to be materialists, not attributing the mind to a soul or spirit.Same-sex marriage and the church:  A particularly egregious example of leftist ideology masquerading as “science” is found in a PhysOrg story entitled, “College students likely to disagree with religious teachings that homosexuality is a sin.”  Saturating this report about University of Michigan Michael Woodford’s views on how to overcome student’s parental and church teachings about marriage are biased words intended to show conservatives as backward and liberal churches as open-minded.  PhysOrg joined left foot in to the leftist professor’s advocacy of same-sex marriage: “College students’ beliefs about same-sex relationships can be shaped by their church’s teachings, but some are willing to oppose their religion’s position on the issue, a new University of Michigan study indicated.  And this can influence students’ views about same-sex marriage.”  Topics like sin and marriage have no place in a science news site, but PhysOrg’s complicity in Woodford’s anti-conservative advocacy that seeks to undo what parents and churches have taught their children echoes intolerant rhetoric this week from certain politicians attacking the Chick Fil-A food chain for its president’s vocal stand for traditional marriage (see Family Research Council article).Burn the heretics:  What happens when a scientist goes rogue and steps outside the leftist consensus?  He or she had better wear armor and combat boots, if not a flame-proof fireman’s suit.  Look at the case of Mark Regnerus (U of Texas), whose politically-incorrect research (reported here 6/10/2012) indicated that traditional families are better for children than same-sex parent homes.  All fury broke loose against him from the sociological science community, according to Christian Smith at the Chronicle of Higher Education, who likened their response to an “academic auto-da-fé” (a reference to Spanish Inquisition celebrations of burning heretics at the stake).  Regnerus’ attempt to state his findings in the gentlest, fairest, most tolerant manner possible were no protection.  See also “Science Lies Bleeding: A Ballad for Honesty” by Kathryn Jean Lopez at National Review.Wait a minute, the reader hesitates … I’m confused.  Aren’t liberals supposed to be the champions of tolerance?  Aren’t these the ones promoting diversity?  Isn’t their favorite word inclusion?Now you understand the mindset of the Darwin Party.  With few exceptions, they are cut of the same cloth.  Leftists whimper for academic freedom when in the minority.  But once they get power, they become  intellectual bigots and bullies, with no tolerance for the inclusion of diverse views outside of those that are progressive, leftist, liberal, and even radical.If you find any politically conservative Darwinists who support traditional marriage, the US Constitution, private property rights, the free market, individual liberty, limited government, free speech and scientific integrity, send him to the embassy for protection from the next academic auto-da-fé.

Be Thankful for Nature

first_imgThe health benefits of nature should encourage us to step outside and take it in.It’s Thanksgiving Day in America. What better time than to take a walk under the trees? Science journals and websites continue to tell us that outdoor exposure is healthy for both mind and body.Improving city parks may be one path to help make residents more active (Science Daily). City planners should aim for a high ParkScore – that is, the availability of places for residents to enjoy nature. The more available a park, the more people will become physically active. “What we found was that the higher the ParkScore — which is a way of saying the better the park system — the larger the proportion of the population that was engaged in physical activity and just a small positive change in that score can mean quite a bit as far as helping residents taking part in physical activity.”Girls and women need more time in nature to be healthy (Rebecca Spencer and Sara Kirk, The Conversation). Parks aren’t just for boys. “We learned that nature provided important context for these girls and young women to feel comfortable, safe and confident to navigate the complex gender norms around physical activity.”Citizens prefer landscapes that combine nature with built infrastructure ( It’s OK to have some buildings and roads in natural settings, researchers found at the Autonomous University of Barcelona, after searching through thousands of nature photos posted on social media. A forest or coastline doesn’t have to look like “pristine nature” as long as the structures fit in and make nature more accessible to citizens. Planners are becoming more aware of “the benefits that nature brings to society and that improve health, economy and people’s quality of life.”Why natural depression therapies are better than pills (Matt Strauss, The Conversation). Feeling depressed? Taking a walk may be just what the doctor ordered. Among the natural therapies Strauss finds more helpful than medications are (1) Exercise (go take a hike), (2) Bright light therapy (try some sunshine), (3) Mediterranean diet (put some carrots in your daypack), and (4) Cognitive behavioral therapy.On that last suggestion, don’t trust a shrink. They don’t know what they are talking about most of the time (19 Nov 2018). Instead, walk in the park with a godly mentor, who can help you get your eyes off yourself and your problems and teach you about gratitude (27 Nov 2014).

first_imgSarri delighted with ‘reaction’ for Chelsea win at Watfordby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveChelsea boss Maurizio Sarri was pleased with their victory at Watford on Wednesday night.Eden Hazard scored twice as Chelsea gained a hard-fought win at Watford to reclaim fourth place in the Premier League table.The Belgian opened the scoring when he collected Mateo Kovacic’s pass, took the ball around goalkeeper Ben Foster and calmly finished for his 100th Blues goal.Chelsea’s lead only lasted two minutes until Roberto Pereyra volleyed past Kepa Arrizabalaga from the edge of the 18-yard box.But Hazard grabbed his second of the match in the second half when he converted a penalty after Foster had bundled him over.Sarri told Sky Sports: “I think we played a good match with a good level of determination and attention for 90 minutes. We could have won with another result. we missed three or four good opportunities but I’m happy with the reaction. It was dangerous for us when they conceded, but we reacted well and we didn’t stop playing our football.”On Eden Hazard’s performance, he added: “I think he played very well, not only for his two goals, but he was good with his teammates and in open spaces. I like him in every position he is a great player.”In this moment we need this solution because we need to be more solid defensively and with this system we can score and become more solid in the defensive phase. Maybe in the last match, we played better in the first half than we did tonight, but today the application was very good.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
