Virtual reality addiction

Niko Rayawa,
Lautoka

As I walked across the line of shops directly opposite the bus stand in Lautoka, I noticed this internet cafe, full of teenagers and high school students glued to their screens.

The majority of them, with headphones on, were totally fixated to their virtual games. whereas others  were on FaceBook.

The mesmerising impact this seducing virtual reality has is that they lose track of time and most importantly, the virtual world will become realistic to them.

The danger, I believe, would be is not knowing the difference.

Children spend hours, day in, day out sitting and eyes focused for long periods of time.

This can be detrimental to them which may later lead to illnesses that could have been avoided.

I know that it’s the holidays and kids need to unwind; it is  not  bad to indulge in it but  perhaps not  too much of their time.

However, it is also very important for our children to venture into realistic experiences like acquiring social skills and recreational activities such as swimming, camping, kayaking, first aid farming and many other useful skills that may one day save not only their lives but of others and skills that can be used whenever applicable.

 

 

No celebrity moved to Canada yet

When it comes to president elect Donald Trump, it appears to be a case of watch what I do, not what I say.

So keep watching the tweeter in chief and you may be surprised.

At least the world hasn’t ended as predicted by many who opposed him.

By the way no Hollywood celebrity has moved to Canada yet.

 

 

Fiji needs more fitness

South Africa, you beat a new Fijian team.

The team is very good, but needs the same fitness preparation that was done before the Olympics.

Congratulations South Africa you’re on the right track!  Thanks,
