Study finds that violent video games may be linked to aggressive behaviour

first_imgThe Independent 18 August 2015Psychologists have confirmed that playing violent video games is linked to aggressive and callous behaviour. A review of almost a decade of studies found that exposure to violent video games was a “risk factor” for increased aggression.But the same team of experts said there was insufficient evidence to conclude that the influence of games such as Call Of Duty and Grand Theft Auto led to criminal acts.The findings have prompted a call for more parental control over violent scenes in video games from the American Psychological Association (APA).A report from the APA task force on violent media concludes: “The research demonstrates a consistent relation between violent video game use and increases in aggressive behaviour, aggressive cognitions and aggressive affect, and decreases in pro-social behaviour, empathy and sensitivity to aggression.”The report said no single influence led a person to act aggressively or violently. Rather, it was an “accumulation of risk factors” that resulted in such behaviour.It added: “The research reviewed here demonstrates that violent video game use is one such risk factor.”The APA has urged game creators to increase levels of parental control over the amount of violence video games contain.At a meeting in Toronto, Canada, earlier this month the association’s ruling council also called for a video game rating system that took more notice of violence and for games to be more appropriate to players’ age and psychological development.http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/study-finds-that-violent-video-games-may-be-linked-to-aggressive-behaviour-10458614.htmllast_img read more

LETTERKENNY ROUTE WILL BE WHEELCHAIR FRIENDLY BY 2013

first_imgBus Eireann has confirmed that the bus route between Letterkenny and Dublin will be fully wheelchair accessible by the end of 2013.The news has been welcomed by Letterkenny Town councillor Jimmy Kavanagh who has been campaigning on the issue.“This is great news for wheelchair users.The route between Letterkenny and Dublin is a very busy route, serving the airport and many health services in the capital city, and is widely used by people with physical disabilities,” he said. The absence of a rail service in Donegal means that there is no alternative for many wheelchair users. The route also serves two other counties Tyrone and Monaghan which do not have rail services said Cllr. Kavanagh.“At the moment wheelchair users cannot travel alone without depending on the goodwill of fellow passengers, and although the Bus Eireann drivers are always very helpful, they are limited in what they can do, without a proper wheelchair lift.He added tt is also very difficult for wheelchair users to avail of the break in Monaghan to get refreshments or to use toilet facilities, as this involves the hassle of getting off the bus retrieving their wheelchair from the luggage, and re boarding the bus, with the result that many wheelchair passengers don’t have any break during the four hour journey.“I’m delighted that Bus Eireann have now decided to include this route for urgent upgrading to fully wheelchair accessible. I have been working with Deputy Joe McHugh T.D. on the issue and I would like to thank him for his help, I would also like to thank the Town Council for supporting my recent motion on this issue, and the members of the Donegal Irish Wheelchair Association ho highlighted the importance of making the route accessible.” concluded Cllr. Kavanagh.  LETTERKENNY ROUTE WILL BE WHEELCHAIR FRIENDLY BY 2013 was last modified: July 15th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:bus eireannCllr Jimmy Kavanaghlast_img read more
