Technobyte: How much time should kids spend online?

Technologic innovation has transformed media and its role in the lives of infants and young children. More children, even in economically challenged households, are using newer digital technologies, such as interactive and mobile media, on a daily basis and continue to be the target of intense marketing. This policy statement addresses the influence of media on the health and development of children from 0 to 5 years of age, a time of critical brain development, building secure relationships, and establishing health behaviours.

Benjamin Franklin once said “When the well runs dry, we will know the worth of water”. Sadly, it is a reality today. Our world is running out of fresh water. We are so used to seeing water all around us, we don’t yet completely understand the severity of water scarcity. While 71% of the earth’s surface is covered with water, only a scant 3% is drinkable. What's more, a large portion of it is tucked away in frozen glaciers and is off limits. This inspired the perfect opportunity to create the Water Abundance XPRIZE, a $ 1 million incentive to anyone out there who can push the limits of what’s possible and create water out of thin air.
