The Minister also explained that the dividers for the open space where grades two through six are being held are not done, but should be completed by this weekend. Materials have been bought and construction on the separations for the classrooms is a work in active progress.The explanation on the dividers was in response to that teacher who said the near 500 children are sharing the open space at the gym but it is near impossible to get the students to focus on their individual lesson with other classes ongoing; the openness is proving distracting and students, shared the teacher are often missing the message.Again, the Minister expressed her understanding of the predicament and asked for understanding as well. Saying essentially that her ministry has struggled to find a place for thousands of children across the archipelago left displaced by the category 5 plus, Hurricane Irma on September 7; its a big task which the Ministry is managing and tweaking to ensure that there is comfort, safety and stability as the children learn and the teachers teach.There was a promise to have those dividers completed on the weekend and a promise to work with the Estate Department of TCIG to get the cleaners taking on the chore of mopping up water, when there is rainy weather.Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Education, Wesley Clerveaux, who we also reached out to said there is no disregard by the ministry going on, adding that the minister has been visiting all schools weekly to ensure progress is being made for a return to life as normal for public education.This is the first week the entire student population of Oseta Jolly is at school. The children from Early Childhood to Sixth Grade and their teachers are facilitated at two locations in downtown Provo; the Gus Lightbourne Gym and at the Edward Gartland Youth Center.

For practicing and developing a new skill, making slight changes during practice sessions may help to master the skill faster than practicing in the same manner, a new study has found.The results support the idea of a process called reconsolidation, in which existing memories are recalled and modified with new knowledge, plays a key role in strengthening of motor skills, said senior author Pablo A Celnik from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in the US. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’“What we found is if you practice a slightly modified version of a task you want to master, you actually learn more and faster than if you just keep practicing the exact same thing multiple times in a row,” Celnik added. The study was published in the journal Current Biology, suggests reconsolidation is not only for leisure skills like learning a musical instrument or a sport, but it is also beneficial for helping patients with stroke and other neurological conditions regain lost motor function, Celnik explained.

The volunteers were divided in three groups. The first group completed a typical training schedule and repeated the exact same training lesson six hours later. The second group performed the first practice session and, after six hours, completed a second training session in which researchers had twisted the test and the third group performed the exact same task just once a day. Speedier and more accurate completion of the task, nearly doubled among those in the second group compared to those in the first group, who repeated the same task, the study found. Participants in the third group, who skipped the second session, performed approximately 25 per cent worse than those in the first group.“If you make the altered task too different, people do not get the gain we observed during reconsolidation. The modification between sessions needs to be subtle,” he says.
A diet designed to imitate the effects of fasting may reverse diabetes by reprogramming cells, claims a new study published in the journal cell that may help treat the condition without drugs or painful insulin injections. The fasting-like diet promotes the growth of new insulin-producing pancreatic cells that reduce symptoms of type 1 and type 2 diabetes in mice, according to the study on mice and human cells led by researchers at University of Southern California (USC) in the US. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”Cycles of a fasting-mimicking diet and a normal diet essentially reprogrammed non-insulin-producing cells into insulin-producing cells,” said Valter Longo, director of the Longevity Institute at the USC.”By activating the regeneration of pancreatic cells, we were able to rescue mice from late-stage type 1 and type 2 diabetes. We also reactivated insulin production in human pancreatic cells from type 1 diabetes patients,” said Longo.The reprogrammed adult cells and organs prompted a regeneration in which damaged cells were replaced with new functional ones, he said. The research is the latest in a series of studies to demonstrate promising health benefits of a brief, periodic diet that mimics the effects of a water-only fast. In type 1 and late-stage type 2 diabetes, the pancreas loses insulin-producing beta cells, increasing instability in blood sugar levels. The study showed a remarkable reversal of diabetes in mice placed on the fasting-mimicking diet for four days each week.

This was the case even for mice in the later stages of the disease. The diet cycles switched on genes in the adult mice that are normally active only in the developing pancreases of foetal mice. The genes set off production of a protein, neurogenin-3 (Ngn3); thus, generating new, healthy insulin-producing beta cells. Longo and his team also examined pancreatic cell cultures from human donors and found that, in cells from type 1 diabetes patients, fasting also increased expression of the Ngn3 protein and accelerated insulin production. The results suggest that a fasting-mimicking diet could alleviate diabetes in humans. Another study by the same team published last week demonstrated that the fasting-mimicking diet reduced risks for cancer, diabetes, heart disease and other age-related diseases in human study participants who followed the special diet for five days each month in a three-month span. Prior studies on the diet have shown potential for alleviating symptoms of the neurodegenerative disease multiple sclerosis, increasing the efficacy of chemotherapy for cancer treatments, and decreasing visceral fat.
