ust 10 minutes of exercise
can have significant
benefits for kids.
A new study has found that
short bursts of intensive exercise
will boost childrens brain power
and has benefits for children
with learning difficulties or
conditions such as autism.
Previous research has found
that long, sustained workouts
for about 30 minutes improve
memory and learning in both
adults and children, but the
latest research looked at the
effect of short bursts of high-
intensity training (HIT) lasting
just 10 minutes each day on
children aged 7-13 years.
University of Auckland
researcher David Moreau
says 305 kids participated
in the study, which showed
that after HIT they had

The significance of
the study is that it shows
exercise does not have to be
time-consuming and that a
range of children, some with
learning difficulties, get real
benefits from short periods
of fairly intensive physical
activity, Mr Moreau said.

The political countdown has begun. With
leaders of the major political parties out and

offering new insights into key policy areas,
one question being asked is the likely PM
after election day. Labour leader Ms Ardern
is saying the only poll that matters is the
one on election day, despite a surge in latest
polls publicized after she took charge from
Andrew Little. Mr English is steadily basing
his appeal and the National Partys record
on a sound economy, building on promises
to create more houses, better health services
and matching appeals to assist tertiary
students. It seems there are more lolly
scrambles ahead, as the timeline to election
day is still many days away. In politics time

Man sentenced to 5 years


4 months imprisonment
for sexually assaulting a
10yr old boy
A
35-year-old man
has been sentenced
to 5 years 4 months
imprisonment by the
Nausori Magistrates Court for
sexually assaulting a 10-year-old
boy this year.
He was charged with one
count of sexual assault.
The summary of facts revealed
that on 7th August 2017 the
man unlawfully and indecently
assaulted the victim.
The victim is a 10-year-old
school boy and by deception the
man took him to his home from
school and committed the offence.
He had pleaded guilty to the
offence.
Resident Magistrate Shageeth
Somaratne says as aggravating
factors he considered that the
victim is a 10 year old school boy.
He further said that the
man was 35 years old putting
significant age difference between
the parties.
In mitigation, Magistrate
Somaratne considered that the
man is a single 35-year-old farmer
who is seeking forgiveness.
He also said that the man
pleaded guilty early and saved the
victim from giving evidence.
The man has been giving a
non parole period of 4 years.
