May, 2009 - Young Media Critics began on Blogtalkradio!
What is Media? What is Media Literacy? What is Media Education?
We began broadcasting in 2009 with Frank Baker as our first guest. Frank Baker, I call my mentor. He is a well-know and renowned media literacy educator. He influenced me and caused me to want to learn and to teach everyone about the influences of media messages that surround them every day. On our first show, Frank talked with me and shared What is Media, What is Media Literacy and Media Education. The show is about learning how to interpret, analyze, understand, and create media messages that surround us all every day.
Today’s show we are going to replay that episode and next week’s episode we will be part of the 1st Annual United States Media Literacy Week.
Replay - On Tuesday, July 1, 2014, 5 p.m. EST, Young Media Critics talk with Frank W. Baker, media literacy education consultant and author about the importance of medial literacy education to children, parents and other concerned adults who work with young people.
Frank W. Baker is a media literacy education consultant and the author of three books, including Media Literacy In the K-12 Classroom (ISTE, 2012). He contributed two chapters to Mastering Media Literacy (Solution Tree, 2014). In November 2013, Frank was a co-recipient of the National Telemedia Council‘s annual Jessie McCanse Award given for individual contributions to the field of media literacy over at least 10 years.

Study: BFFs May Have Similar DNA Belinda Luscombe @luscombeland July 15, 2014
Really close friends might be as genetically similar as fourth cousins
Next time someone says “You would really like my friend, she’s just like you,” try to refrain from giving her the side eye. It turns out she might have some science to back her up. According to a new study from Yale University and the University of California at San Diego, good friends are often genetically similar, and can share as much as 1% of the same gene variants. In genetic terms, that’s a lot. As close as, say, fourth cousins.
“This gives us a deeper accounting of the origins of friendship,” says Nicholas Christakis, professor of sociology, evolutionary biology, and medicine at Yale, who co-authored the study with James Fowler, professor of medical genetics and political science at UC San Diego. “Not only do we form ties with people superficially like ourselves, we form ties with people who are like us on a deep genetic level. They’re like our kin, though they’re not.”
The study found that, oddly, close friends are often genetically similar in their sense of smell. But it also concluded that friendship may play a role in evolution. The genes that were shared by friends saw the most “evolutionary activity”, or have evolved the fastest over the past 30,000 years. Whether the friendship or the genetic similarity came first is up for debate. Do we seek out genetically similar friends or do our friendships and mating affect what genes get passed on
“Human beings are one of the few species who form long-term, non-reproductive relationships with other members of our species,” says Fowler.

Today show Matthew will take about social media and pitfalls that we make as parents. "Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter; gaming sites and virtual worlds such as Club Penguin, Second Life, and the Sims; video sites such as YouTube; and blogs. Such sites offer today's youth a portal for entertainment and communication and have grown exponentially in recent years." http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/127/4/800.short
Don't let these sites teach your children what they need to know about life...
Some strategies that work:
•Turn it off – Disconnect on the weekend. Try it, at least for one day or even a few hours each night. Put the phone down and turn off the computer.
•Trim, trim, trim – Say no to everything that is either not essential or doesn’t add something valuable to your life. Be ruthless!
•Pay attention to your health – We know what we need to do, but it isn’t a priority until we have a health crisis. We are far more productive and happier when we get enough sleep, eat a little healthier and fit in some type of activity.
•Minimize toxins– By that I don’t mean chemicals. Minimize the negative influences around you. Avoid toxic people (complainers, whiners, poor attitudes.)
•Spend time alone – It is crucial for lowering stress, increasing happiness and encouraging creativity.
•Relationships do matter – Set aside quality time with your family and friends..
•Treat yourself– Get a pedicure or a facial. Better yet, schedule a massage.
•Explore the world – Take a new route, visit a new town. Attend a local performance, play amateur photographer or go to the park and watch children play.
•Expand your awareness – Take a class, learn to paint or try something new that you’ve always wanted to learn. Read a book that sparks your interest or try listening to uplifting music.
•Remember fun – Laugh, joke, play, find your sense of humor.
