A Norwegian study presented at the World Congress on Osteoporosis, Osteoarthritis and Musculoskeletal Diseases, indicates that greater computer use at weekends is linked with bone mineral density (BMD).
The study gathered data from 463 girls and 484 boys aged 15–18 years in Norway's Tromsø region. The researchers learned that boys spent more time in front of the computer than girls.
The Larder Cook School in West Lothian is a social enterprise that trains young people for a career in the food business. Recently, the school has launched a crowdfunder to help it teach another 80 students a year.
