Tipline: Are Pedometers
in School a Good Idea?

WGRZ-TV [Buffalo, NY], by Jeff Preval

Pedometers track your physical activity, by measuring the steps you take each day. Now, they´re being used in several local schools to track the physical activity of students. Should schools require students to wear them? Several parents tell 2 On Your Side that they´re refusing to have their kids wear them and a prominent local attorney says they´re onto something. [Snip] The program, which originates from the U.S. Department of Education

Comments:
No doubt this Big Brother program is courtesy of Moochelle Obama and reflects the gtowing intrusions in our privacy by Obamacare. Four Buffalo-area school districts are implementing the program, and it´s being funded by $230,000 to $725,000 of YOUR taxpayer dollars.

I don´t think pedometers should be allowed to stalk our kids in school.
This is just outrageous.

We have so many tragic reports of abuse, of attacks, of molestations in schools...

Let´s get these filthy pedometers away from our kids as soon as possible!
Save the chillrun!

Good grief, why not install a camera in everyone`s forehead after birth so Big Brother can follow us from cradle to grave. It`s important to know who is and who isn`t consuming a 17 oz soda. /s

One thing for sure, our govn has too much time on its hands. That`s why it needs to get smaller. The Founders had it right. The best govn is limited govn.

Sorry, it´s no one´s business how much a student walks. I have a pedometer, I´m supposed to walk 10,000 steps a day (1 mile) according to all the health sites. I have a desk job, I have things to do at home once I get there. I also have a bad back, and can´t walk much without extreme pain. But, my doctor refuses to give me pain killers that work. So, I just don´t walk. I admit, when I was a kid, I could have done better, but maybe that mile a day takes away from study time, and the child will flunk a class.

Doesn´t that discriminate against the handicapped? Some of them are unable to participate and I´m sure it their egos will take a hit.

It will make them feel like outsiders. /s

It doesn´t say anything about food consumption in the story, but several of the commenters mentioned they had a food diary to fill out as well, indicating how many servings of veggies each student ate during the day. Just plain creepy.

My boys probably walked a mile before breakfast! They never sat down !
They wore out the tires on their bikes, wore the wheels off their scooters, wore their shoes out in less than a month.
Very fit and healthy, and loved being outdoors.
Of course, I allowed no TV during the week.

When I read the title and blurb, I thought, "Wow, what a quick way to justify eliminating Phys Ed...the pedometers show the kiddies get enough exercise running between classes."

Alas, it is not so innocent, they are supposed to confess what they eat along with the pedometer showing how they walk it off.

Oh, and...yeah, right! the form "doesn´t record" the children´s name or SS#...the teacher can write it down when they turn it in!

DETROIT – The funeral for Ralph C. Wilson Jr. was a relatively small, private affair Saturday, but the Buffalo Bills said the passion of the Western New York fan base was felt. “I just want to offer thanks on behalf of the Wilson family – Mary Wilson and his daughters, Christie and Dee Dee – and the entire organization and family,” said Bills President and Chief Executive Officer Russ Brandon. “The outpouring of support from our fans, our community and our region has been overwhelming.” Family, friends and several National Football League dignitaries paid their last respects to Wilson

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Donald Trump is one man who is known for speaking his mind. On Friday night he was in town to host an Erie County Republican party fundraiser. About 600 guests attended the Erie County Republican Committee´s Lincoln Leadership Reception at Salvatore´s Italian Gardens in Depew. During prepared remarks at the podium Trump assailed New York State´s high tax rate and criticized the SAFE Act gun control legislation, which he called a "disaster." In a subsequent question-and-answer session with reporters he reasserted his intention to run only if

On Friday, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D), who has been widely discussed as a possible 2016 presidential candidate, told Susan Arbetter of The Capitol Pressroom that “extreme conservatives” should leave the state. He said that “extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay” have “no place in the state of New York.” He began by ripping into the Tea Party

Hamilton, N.Y. - If Hillary Rodham Clinton was a candidate for president, the terms "scorched earth" and "evidence-free zone" would likely be household terms. [Snip] Her first public speech was Oct. 4 at Hamilton College, in Clinton. She spoke at the University of Buffalo on Wednesday. She said she visited Corning, Inc. earlier Friday. Her talks are essentially a briefing on the state of the world with context about the way others view a country that shut down its government and fought to the brink of a debt crisis. Her speech does not have the repetition of a political stump

Washington - Both of Western New York’s Republican congressmen find themselves backpedaling furiously from the tea party strategy they supported that led the nation to a 16-day government shutdown as well as the brink of default. Both Rep. Chris Collins of Clarence and Rep. Tom Reed of Corning said in response to questioning that it was a mistake for House Republicans to tie the funding of government to defunding of Obamacare [Snip]. Collins, in an interview, blamed the failed strategy on Sen. Ted Cruz [Snip]. “I think Sen. Cruz has done a disservice to the Republican Party,” Collins said.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

   

 



 
In a Hole, Golf Considers

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like
