Body fat percentage was assessed by DXA and other cardiometabolic risk factors from blood samples. Reading and arithmetic skills were measured using standardised tests. Various confounding factors including motor skills, cardiorespiratory fitness, physical activity, and sedentary behaviour were also measured.A higher body fat percentage and a higher concentration of leptin, a hormone secreted by adipose tissue, were inversely associated with reading skills in boys. However, these associations were explained by poorer motor skills linked to adiposity.In girls, the level of gamma-glutamyylitransferase, a marker of fatty liver, was inversely related to reading fluency. This association was independent of body fat percentage, motor skills, cardiorespiratory fitness, physical activity, and socioeconomic status.“Although adiposity was linked to poorer reading skills in boys, these associations were mainly explained by poorer motor skills that often accompany adiposity. These results suggest that motor skill training during early childhood may contribute to reading skills in boys during the first grades of primary school,” says Dr Eero Haapala from the University of Jyväskylä.“Cardiometabolic risk factors may be more important correlates of academic achievement in girls than in boys, but this warrants more research.”The results suggest that children’s daily physical activity should include various opportunities to practice and rehearse motor skills.

By Alex Lennane 11/02/2019 Last year, the HCH joint-venture, which has a 120-strong team, handled more than 150,000 tons of air cargo, up 7% on the previous year.“We are very satisfied that we can strategically round off our global cargo business with this selective acquisition,“ said Luzius Wirth, Swissport executive vice president Europe. Swissport now has the right set-up to further develop and enhance its service offering at London‘s Heathrow airport.”At Heathrow, Swissport operates two warehouses totalling some 165,000 sq and said the acquisition would allow it to invest further in its air cargo operations and service capabilities.The acquisition is subject to Competition and Markets Authority approval, which is expected by the summer. Swissport has acquired the remaining 50% stake in Heathrow Cargo Handling (HCH), taking its shareholding to 100%.The Swiss handler has run the company since 1995 in a joint-venture with Air France.In the year ending 30 September 2018, HCH had a turnover of £18m, up from £15.9m a year earlier, giving it an operating profit of £2.2m, up from £1.1m a year earlier.The company said revenue had increased owing to larger volumes carried by airlines, mainly on imports, which led to higher yields. read more
Declining branch transactions and increasing mobile use suggest need for new strategy.by: Sam KilmerMembers today place a high expectation of value on their credit unions. They want a responsive and customizable customer experience across all channels—24/7—and they have no problem changing financial institutions to get it. These new expectations are impacting not only how credit unions interact with members to deliver value, but also how credit unions establish trust and meet the expectations of new members on their terms. Delivery in the financial services arena as we know it is changing—drastically and rapidly.In a recent study of mid-size banks conducted by Cornerstone Advisors, branch activity showed a marked decline, with the median number of transactions per teller per month dropping 24 percent between 2010 and 2013. Transactions processed per branch per month fell 14 percent in the same period. While there will continue to be physical channel niche players that focus on the branch experience, the number of branches and physical locations overall keeps shrinking (and, in some cases, disappearing). Meanwhile, the mobile channel continues to grow significantly and take on some of that branch traffic.According to a recent Federal Reserve Board survey, 33 percent of all mobile phone owners report having used mobile banking in the past 12 months, up from 28 percent in the prior year. In addition, 38 percent of mobile bankers deposited checks using their mobile phones in 2013, a 21 percent increase over 2012. Further, 66 percent of mobile users paid bills through an online system in 2013, up from 42 percent in 2012.It isn’t only in branches and mobile channels where we are seeing a dramatic shift in usage. Contact centers are growing in complexity, volume and staff and are performing a wide mix of functions, including servicing of inbound calls, handling of member emails and chat, home banking support, call routing within the credit union, outbound sales, loan origination, deposit origination, support for certain employee issues and member satisfaction surveys. continue reading » 7SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr read more

BELGIUM: Freight operator SNCB Logistics has provided all its drivers with Samsung tablet computers under the Rail Information Train Assistant project.RITA eliminates the need to carry heavy documentation such as manuals and details of timetable updates. It speeds up the completion of time sheets and driver’s reports, with all information now available centrally to enable deeper and wider-ranging analysis. Safety messages can be sent automatically and simultaneously to all drivers, who are now required to acknowledge the messages so that the company can track who has confirmed receipt. The improvement in communication has also facilitated more flexible deployment of staff. ARC supplied the mobile device management suite, while I-Explore turned the outline concept into a mobile application and Mobistar provides the 3G data interchange. ‘By equipping a traditional job like a train driver with the latest communication equipment, we have made significant progress in terms of quality and safety’, said Rik Vos, COO at SNCB Logistics. ‘The drivers themselves are enthusiastic about the user-friendliness of the tool. Since they can communicate with our central services in real-time, we can react much faster to any problems, which enhances the reliability of our operational performance.’ read more
