first_imgA study out of England has found that four out of five children report feeling more confident after spending time participating in outdoor activities. The study looked at 451 children who undertook activities such as identifying plants and trees. Researchers discovered that following those experiences, 79% of children said it could help their schoolwork. Children also reported that outdoor activities could improve their relationships in class. Eighty-one percent said they had better relationships with their teachers after spending time in nature and 79% said their relationships with their classmates were better. A Massachusetts man was rescued from the Appalachian Trail on Wednesday after phoning police to tell them he was cold, weak and suffering from an injury that prevented him from hiking out of the forest.  Study finds spending time in nature improves kid’s confidence Rescue workers located Eric Wrisley, 36, near the Goddard Shelter in Glastenbury, Vermont around 10pm. He was escorted out of the woods and treated and released by Bennington Rescue.  The U.S. national track cycling team took Gold in the team pursuit and points race and Bronze in the scratch race at the Track World Cup in Minsk, Belarus on November 1. Chole Dygert Owens, Jennifer Valente, Christina Birch and Emma White clocked their fastest time in the team pursuit since the qualifying round of the 2016 Rio Olympics. Their time of 4:13:616 broke the Minsk Arena Velodrome’s track record. They later won the Gold medal after beating Germany in the finals.  “Our women proved today why they have claimed three out of the past four titles at the World Championships,” Jeff Pierce, Director of Elite Athletics, road and track told Velo News. “They have been training extremely hard and we are looking forward to continuing their progression as we look toward Toyko 2020.” U.S. Women’s track cycling team takes gold at Track World Cup Hiker rescued from AT in southern Vermont “This research shows that children experience profound and diverse benefits through regular contact with nature,” said Nigel Doar, director of strategy at England’s The Wildlife Trust. “Contact with the wild improves children’s wellbeing, motivation and confidence.”last_img read more

first_imgManchester City reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League for the first time courtesyof a 0-0 draw at home to Dynamo Kiev, sealing a 3-1 aggregate victory. However, the win came at a cost, with centre-backs Vincent Kompany and Nicolas Otamendi both going off injured.City went into the game with a 3-1 lead from the first leg and looked in complete control throughout a first half that lacked anything even resembling a chance at either end. And a subdued atmosphere at the Etihad wasn’t helped by Kompany pulling up with a muscle injury just five minutes into the game. The City captain was stony-faced as he left the field, and he was joined in the changing rooms shortly afterwards by fellow centre-back Otamendi with what looked like a less serious injury.Dynamo needed three goals to avoid a European exit and threw on an extra striker for the second half, but it was City who created the game’s better chances, with Sergio Aguero shooting narrowly wide and Jesus Navas striking the post with a low drive.The celebrations at full-time were muted, but this result heralds a new dawn for Manchester City, who now wait for Friday’s quarter-final draw to see who they face in the last eight of the competition.– Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @JoySportsGH.
