Gaming in Small Doses Has Benefits for Kids


Gaming in Small Doses Has Benefits for Kids

The adage “Everything in moderation” appears to apply even to video games. A recent study finds that youngsters between the ages of 10 and 15 who spend an hour or less a day playing video games are better adjusted and report more satisfaction with their lives than those who do not play at all, while those who play video games for more than three hours a day are less well adjusted than their peers.

They have taken the right away for me to play the audio for this video, however I am going to argue the removal because this song has been played all over by many radio stations and other online communities and YouTubers should have the right to listen to it too.

NEWS: GAMING CAN INCREASE SOCIAL BEHAVIOR


Gaming Can Increase Social Behavior

ROULETTE


Roulette

Roulette emerged in late 18th-century European casinos and has remained popular with gamblers to this day. In the game, a horizontal wheel is spun and a ball is dropped onto it.

Though roulette is ostensibly a game of chance, players have repeatedly tried to improve their odds. How did one engineer exploit the game to win $325,000 in 1873? More… Discuss
