Age Of Summer (2018)

Over the course of the summer, Woods and Minnesota will be bullied, Minnesota will make friends with the older-savvier Mathis (Jonathan Daviss) and the disreputable teens Pots (Kane Ritchotte) and Pans (Mccabe Gregg).

There'sa certain degree of charm to the way the episodic narrative comes across as astring of half-remembered events, filtered through the lessons Minnesotaapparently has learned during this supposedly momentous summer. A bike doesn'tmatter much in the big picture. Brooke may be his crush, but there are othergirls out there. A best friend may have his own growing up to do, and that's hisproblem. A dead body puts a lot of life's little things into perspective.

Though a bit choppy with tons of montage surf scenes that seemed to go on forever, the story itself was a pleasant watch to wrap up the end of summer. We all had one summer or moment that defined us or is stuck in our head forever. The moment we knew we were no longer just kids. Puberty, feelings, and first kisses were all new to us at one point in time. This movie brings us back to that moment.

Totally we recorded 24 summer waterbird species and 1486 individuals in the 38 lakes (Additional file 2: Table S2). The rarefaction curve was an asymptotic line, which indicated that our sample effort was sufficient to count waterbird species in these lakes (Fig. 2).

The most delightfully terrifying novel of the summer starts with a disquieting experiment in a sanatorium outside Buenos Aires in 1907, involving decapitating patients and, in the few seconds while the head maintains life, asking it what it sees. Then the novel shuttles to 2009 and follows a shock artist attempting his most twisted installation to date. How the novel connects the two halves is surprising and brilliant. This novel will appeal to fans of both B-movie horror and exceedingly dark comedy.

As we age, our ability to adequately respond to summer heat can become a serious problem. Older people are at significant increased risk of heat-related illnesses, known collectively as hyperthermia, during the summer months. Hyperthermia can include heat stroke, heat edema (swelling in your ankles and feet when you get hot), heat syncope (sudden dizziness after exercising in the heat), heat cramps, and heat exhaustion.

4As of this past summer, roughly two-thirds of Americans said they would like to see tighter e-cigarette regulations. In a July 2019 Gallup survey, 64% of U.S. adults said laws and regulations covering e-cigarettes should be made more strict, while around a quarter (26%) said regulations should stay as they are now. Just 5% said these laws and regulations should be less strict.

Signs of summer pop up with each page turn and are briefly described, sure to delight adult and child alike. Bright color and engaging text encourage involvement with all things summer. While not terribly fragile, young hands may need a reminder to handle with care.

Children from low-income families experience accelerated BMI gain and learning loss during summer. Healthy Summer Learners (HSL) addresses accelerated BMI gain and academic learning loss during summer by providing academic- and health-focused programming. This manuscript reports the effects of HSL on underlying obesogenic behaviors (i.e., physical activity, screen time, sleep, diet) that lead to accelerated summer BMI gain, a necessary first step to informing a future randomized controlled trial of HSL.

Hypothesis 1. On days when they attend a program, children enrolled in a summer program (HSL or 21C) will engage in more beneficial levels of obesogenic behaviors compared to children in the control group.

Random assignment was completed by the last author (RGW) who was not involved in data collection and was completed each summer after participants enrolled in the study using the runiform command in Stata (v14.2, College Station, TX). Once implemented, randomization could not be changed.

Hypothesis 1. On days when they attend a program, children enrolled in a summer program (HSL or 21C) will engage in more beneficial levels of obesogenic behaviors compared to children in the control group.

Hypothesis 5. On weekdays when children do not attend a program, all children (enrolled in a summer program and not enrolled) will engage in similar obesogenic behaviors compared to weekend days.

This pilot study examined the impact of structured summer programming on the obesogenic behaviors of children. Overall, the results indicate that providing children with structured summer programming led to improvements in obesogenic behaviors during the summer months compared to children who were not provided access. Specifically, on days when children attended a program (i.e., HSL or 21C), they had more favorable patterns of obesogenic behaviors compared to controls for outcomes related to physical activity, sedentary behavior, sleep, screen time, and diet. This study identified the behavioral mechanisms impacted by HSL and will inform a future large-scale randomized trial.

Children who attended a program (i.e., HSL or 21C) showed significant improvements in obesogenic behaviors compared to their own behavior on days they did not attend the program (including both weekends and weekdays). On days children attended a structured summer program, they accumulated more steps, more overall MVPA, and less sedentary behavior compared to their own behavior on non-program days (either weekends or non-attended weekdays). These improvements were more pronounced in the HSL group, whereas improvements associated with program attendance in the domains of sleep, screen time, and diet were comparable across the two interventions. This was expected given that HSL was designed to provide additional opportunities for physical activity and healthy eating when compared to the 21C and neither HSL nor 21C explicitly targeted sleep or screen time.

This study also showed that on program nights children went to bed earlier and awoke earlier the next day, potentially driven by the early start time for summer programming. Similarly, children engaged in less screen time on program days. Together, these findings indicate that parents are more likely to enforce screen and bedtime rules in preparation for an early rise the next day. These findings are consistent with the literature that children report less screen time on school weekdays than the weekend [14], and evidence showing increased screen usage during summer months compared to the school year [15, 19]. Thus, the structure afforded by summer programming may have a beneficial impact on pre-bedtime screen time, which can positively shape sleep behaviors such as consistent bed/wake times and improve sleep quality [41].

Overall, the results largely support the SDH with children engaging in more favorable obesogenic behaviors on days that they attended a structured summer program versus days they did not. Further, the finding that children displayed similar obesogenic behaviors on days that they did not attend a structured program further supports the SDH hypothesis. These findings demonstrate that increased access to structured summer programming may be an effective strategy to mitigate the obesogenic behaviors of children during the summer.

Any changes related to your registration information, i.e., dropping or adding a course or meal plan, after the online registration closes will necessitate a visit to the Summer Session Office, 303 Shell Hall. The Summer Session registration link will first take you to instructions on how to complete the registration process. Please read the instructions carefully before proceeding. Briefly, you must select your courses, indicate whether you want to reside in the Barracks, select a meal plan, and provide information about any vehicle that you want to register for the summer.

In addition to their research credits students participating in SURI may take a maximum of four additional credits per summer session (with the exception of lab classes). Students may not enroll in SURI and a lab class in the same session. The cost of any additional credits is the responsibility of the student. For more information, please visit

This figure shows rates for deaths that medical professionals have classified as being caused by a combination of cardiovascular disease (diseases of the circulatory system) and heat exposure. This graph presents summer (May to September) death rates from 1999 to 2018 for three population groups in the 50 states and the District of Columbia. The blue line shows rates for the entire population, the green line shows rates for non-Hispanic Black people, and the pink line shows rates for people aged 65 and older.

Certain population groups already face higher risks of heat-related death, and increases in summertime temperature variability will increase that risk.6,7 The population of adults aged 65 and older, which is expected to continue to grow, has a higher-than-average risk of heat-related death. Children are particularly vulnerable to heat-related illness and death, as their bodies are less able to adapt to heat than adults, and they must rely on others to help keep them safe.8 People with certain diseases, such as cardiovascular and respiratory illnesses, are especially vulnerable to excessive heat exposure, as are the economically disadvantaged. Data also suggest a higher risk among non-Hispanic Blacks.9

Figure 1 shows heat-related death rates using two methods. One method shows deaths for which excessive natural heat was stated as the underlying cause of death from 1979 to 2018. The other data series shows deaths for which heat was listed as either the underlying cause or a contributing cause, based on a broader set of data that, at present, can only be evaluated back to 1999. For example, in a case where cardiovascular disease was determined to be the underlying cause of death, heat could be listed as a contributing factor because it can make the individual more susceptible to the effects of this disease. Because excessive heat events are associated with summer months, the contributing factor analysis was limited to May through September. 041b061a72
