Daily Mail:Wisdom really does come from experience.A new study has found adults aged 60 and over are better at strategising their decisions than those in their late teens and early 20s, who tend to focus on instant gratification.Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin and Texas A&M University said the findings contradict negative stereotypes elders lose mental edge and reasoning ability with age, showing they are able to make better decisions under some conditions. Findings from the study, led by Darrell Worthy, professor of psychology at Texas A&M University, and co-authored by University of Texas at Austin psychologist Todd Maddox, will be published in Psychological Science.Mr Maddox said the study gives insight into the decision-making process, which will help researchers learn more about the effects of ageing in the brain.Read the whole story: Daily Mail More of our Members in the Media >
Education Minister Ruel Reid Jamaica’s Minister of Education, Youth and Information, Senator the Hon. Ruel Reid, says the Government has a fundamental position on how education is funded. Senator Reid was speaking at the 10th anniversary of Benevolent Missions of Atlanta, an organization specializing in assisting under-served schools in both metro Atlanta and Jamaica.“In our Charter of Rights, we have a responsibility to provide State-funded education to our youth up to the age of 18. We don’t like a structure where there are fees that impede or impair access,” the Minister said.The Minister emphasized that a system with less fees will allow parents to give more to their schools. Senator Reid said one of the fiscal challenges faced by the Ministry is the allocation for maintenance. He pointed out that some 30 years ago; the Government began to allocate $50,000 annually for maintenance in secondary schools, with little change over the years. The Minister said he intends to change the amount this year.Meanwhile, the Minister said he has been a student of the education system in Jamaica for a very long time and it is a system with a “colonial perspective… without understanding the developmental spectrum.”He said that children learn at different rates and only in recent times obstacles to learning, such as autism and Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD), have been recognized as “developmental problems that children face.”“I say this because I don’t believe we’ve explained to our society how children really learn. Some of them will take a longer time than others,” the Minister explained.

FOLLOW US A top Canadian government health official says the Blue Jays might want to consider hosting an extended stretch of home games in order to get approval to play in Toronto amid the pandemic. Dr. Howard Njoo, Canada’s Deputy Chief Public Health Officer, said Tuesday that back and forth travel from the United States, where coronavirus cases are surging, is a major issue that could prevent the government from approving Major League Baseball to play in Canada.“The fact of the matter is today in Canada we’ve done a good job of flattening our curve. The situation doesn’t appear to be changing quickly in the U.S,” Njoo said.Njoo noted Canada has been reporting about 300 cases per day compared to 60,000 per day in the U.S.Njoo said discussions with the Blue Jays and MLB continue and the government is always open.The Blue Jays are scheduled to open the season July 24 at Tampa Bay. Toronto’s home opener is listed as July 29 against Washington.“We’re seeing what’s in the realm of possible,” Njoo said. “I could get myself in trouble but I’m going to say it anyway. Look at the epidemiology of COVID-19 in Canada. I know the schedule has already been set for the Blue Jays, but in trying to respect the quarantine and keeping players safe, I don’t know, maybe one option is the Blue Jays staying in Canada for an extended period of time and playing a quite a long series of games.”Such a change would require a change in MLB’s schedule and would mean opposing teams flying to Canada for what would have been home games in their home ball parks.MLB requires an exemption to a requirement that anyone entering Canada for nonessential reasons must self-isolate for 14 days. The U.S.-Canada border remains closed to nonessential travel and the two countries are poised to extend their agreement to Aug. 21, but a final confirmation has not been given, a person familiar with the matter said Tuesday.The agreement would likely extend the closure by another 30 days. The official was not authorized to speak publicly ahead of an announcement this week, and spoke on condition of anonymity.The Blue Jays have said they prefer to play in Toronto. Their training facility in Dunedin, Florida, has been mentioned as an alternative if they are not given an exemption to play in Toronto. But Florida is seeing a record surge in COVID-19 cases.“This whole year has been super crazy. We’re hopeful that we can play in Toronto but we know that can change,” infielder Cavan Biggio said. “It is something we’re not trying to worry too much about.”Governments in Canada allowed the team to move their summer camp from their training complex in Dunedin, as the Blue Jays created a quarantine environment at Rogers Centre in Toronto and the adjoining Toronto Marriott City Centre Hotel, which overlooks the field. Players are not allowed to leave the stadium or hotel and face fines or jail time if they do.“Staying in the hotel and not being allowed to go outside is differently different, but it is something that we all understand that we all have to do and we don’t have a problem with it,” Biggio said.Njoo reiterated that the regular season is a “totally different ballgame” than allowing for just training in Toronto because it players to frequently travel back and forth between the United States.Blue Jays President Mark Shapiro has said visiting teams would not leave the confines of Rogers Centre and the hotel attached to the stadium if the regular season plan is approved.(Image Credit: AP) Associated Press Television News First Published: 15th July, 2020 07:34 IST LIVE TV COMMENT
