WEATHER-WXWALL


FLOODING RAIN

Today's very active and wet weather pattern was enhanced with an area of low pressure above south Florida. This feature will continue to bring more downpours and thunderstorms tonight. Rainfall has been excessive today - over 6" in some Naples neighborhoods at the time of this writing - and I expect more downpours tonight. The rain showers should begin to taper off by midnight, but there could still be more showers washing in from the Gulf overnight and through tomorrow morning.

Temperatures will stay in the mid 70's this evening. It is highly likely that there will be more flooding in some places this evening and travel could be difficult tonight after sunset. Many roads and areas with poor drainage will be under water this evening.

Tomorrow's forecast looks better. We will still be under the threat of morning showers or thunderstorms as southwest winds set in for Tuesday. The afternoon threat for thunderstorms will be mainly inland tomorrow and high temperatures will top out around 90 as the clouds break-up in the afternoon. Return to index of stories...

VIDEO GAMING FOR KIDS-TC MON


IT ROTS YOUR BRAIN.

NO VIDEO GAMES UNTIL YOU FINISH YOUR HOMEWORK.

THAT'S IT - YOU LOSE PRIVILEGES.

VIDEO GAMING FOR KIDS-PKG


--

IT'S AN ALTERNATE. VIRTUAL UNIVERSE.

A PLACE -- A VIDEO GAME -- FOR KIDS TO ESCAPE.

--

--

THE VIDEO GAMES PARENTS CALL "NASTY" ARE ACTUALLY HELP CHILDREN ADJUST.SCORE BETTER ON TESTS AND HAVE A BETTER MENTAL BEING.

ACCORDING TO MAJOR CHILD EXPERTS AND RESEARCHERS. THESE GAMES ARE THE TOOLS TO A WELL-ROUNDED CHILD.

RESEARCHERS IN THE UNITED KINGDOM STUDIED ABOUT 5,000 10-15 YEARS OLD.

THEY COMPARED HOURS THOSE CHILDREN SPENT GAMING TO NORMAL DEVELOPMENT.

THOSE WHO SPENT UP TO THREE HOUSE ON THE CONTROLLER WERE THE MOST WELL-ADJUSTED COMPARED TO THOSE WHO LOGGED LITTLE TO NO GAME TIME.

--

---

BUT TOO MUCH IN FRONT OF THE GAME.

RESEARCHERS SAY THEY CHILDREN ENTERED A DIFFERENT WORLD.

THEY LEFT THE OUTDOORS, TIME WITH FRIENDS AND OTHER "TYPICAL" CHILDHOOD PLAY AND INVESTED MORE THAN HALF OF THEIR FREE TIME SUCKED INTO TO THIS.
