NEWS: PLAYGROUND BENCHES: HELPFUL OR HARMFUL?


Playground Benches: Helpful or Harmful?

Getting adults up and moving may be as simple as removing benches from playgrounds. Researchers found that removing seating from children’s playgrounds increased the amount of exercise adults got as they supervised the youngsters in their care. When the benches were removed from one playground, adults were 23 times more likely to engage in moderate to vigorous activity than when the benches were present, and they were no more likely to cut their children’s playtime short as a result of the lack of seating. More… Discuss

Regina Spektor – Human Of The Year (“…Til next year’s big human winner…”)


REGINA SPEKTOR LYRICS

“Human Of The Year”

Hello, hello
Calling a Karl Projectorinski
To the front of the cathedral
You have won, dear sir
May I congratulate you first?

Human, human of the year
You won [x2]

Why are you so scared
You stand there shaking in your pew
The icons are whispering to you
They’re just old men
Like on the benches on the park
Except their balding spots are glistening with gold

Human, human of the year
You won [x2]
You have won

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Outside the cars are beeping
Out a song
Just in your honor
And even though they do not know it
All mankind are now your brothers
And as the cathedral has spoken
Wishing well to all us sinners
And where the sight grew silent
Til next year’s big human winner

Outside the cars are beeping
Out a song
Just in your honor
And even though they do not know it
All mankind are now your brothers
All mankind are now your brothers

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hello, hello
Calling a Karl Projectorinski
To the front of the cathedral
You have won
