How important is eye contact?

I remember Mum always reminding me "look at me when I am talking to you..." But guess what? Studies have shown that eye contact is not necessarily needed for enjoyable conversation. Now that is not to say that you shouldn't give your parents the respect they need but we found this article an interesting read. Click on the picture below to read more.

  • Submitting a “narrative” which centers on a KFC-themed “romantic vignette”

Tech and Time: Instatips For Parents versus A Day In 1840

All the links for our show for Tuesday, 5th February 2019!


Interesting things we talked about:

 

Instagram and Netsafe have partnered and released  a helpful guide to give you insight and prepare you to give your kids the guidance when they need it. Click here to read A Parent’s Guide to Instagram: New Zealand Edition 2019.

It is timely as today is Safer Internet Day and we have to remember it is an ocean out there and there are sharks out there as well as so much great stuff to learn and see..

Safe internet day

Although young people are often digitally savvy, they’re still developing. Teenagers will need your guidance on appropriate online behaviours and how to navigate challenges. Netsafe’s research shows that when young people do reach out for help, parents are still a place that many turn to for support. As a parent you don’t need to be an expert in technology, but being familiar with the technology that young people are using and the challenges that they may experience is a great start. So check it out and even if you don't have kids you can offer tips for others who do, or even learn a thing or two to help yourself keep away from the negative interactions that this social media medium may pose. 

Tomorrow is Waitangi so today we took a look at the Worldwide happenings in 1840...

In 1840, the first postage stamp was issued which featured a black and white portrait of Queen Victoria costing one penny (more often referred to as the "Penny Black"). 

Penny Black Stamp

1840: John Herschel invented the blueprint. This process allowed rapid, and accurate, production of an unlimited number of copies. It was widely used for over a century for the reproduction of specification drawings and construction and industry. The blueprint process was characterised by white lines on a blue background, a negative of the original. 

Blueprint

  • January 18, 1840 – The Electro-Magnetic and Mechanics Intelligencer was the first newspaper in American that used electricity for power of the press to print it.

Fashion: For women soft-shouldered dresses with lower waists were all the rage as well a a centre part and ringlets around the ears. For gentlemen they found themselves in cravats and waistcoats. Cravats (or neckcloths) were long strips of cloth (silk, linen, cotton, &c.) that were wrapped around the neck, then tied in any one of many different knots,  and these were the forerunner of the modern tie.

  •  1840 Fashion
  • The first known photograph of Niagara Falls, a daguerreotype, is taken by English chemist Hugh Lee Pattinson.
  • NIAGARA FALLS first photo ever

In Astronomy; John William Draper invents astronomical photography and photographs the Moon.

In Chemistry Germain Hess proposes Hess's law, an early statement of the law of conservation of energy, which establishes that energy changes in a chemical process depend only on the states of the starting and product materials and not on the specific pathway taken between the two states.[5]

Earth sciences

  • Louis Agassiz publishes his Etudes sur les glaciers, the first major scientific work to propose that the Earth has seen an ice age.

In Exploration (aside from the ships that departed from Britain and docked in Nz)... On January the 19th – Captain Charles Wilkes' United States Exploring Expedition sights Wilkes Land, providing evidence that Antarctica is a complete continent. Later on January the 21st Jules Dumont d'Urville first visited Adélie Land in the French ship Astrolabe.

  • This year Robert Bunsen invented the Bunsen cell (the first battery) and King's College Hospital opened in London. And on the 7th of December, 1840 the pioneering Missionary David Livingstone left Britain for Africa.

Join Our 7-Day Devotional: Who Do You Put Your Trust In?

Would you read the Bible plan, Trust, with me?

Proverbs 3v5

Click on the image above to join Dan and Joy on this 7 day journey.

Scripture: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.” Proverbs 3:5

God alone has understanding about what matters, who we are, and what will happen. And the good news is that our heavenly Father is absolutely longing to share his understanding. So if God has all the knowledge and he is willing to share it, what then is the barrier? It is our ability to trust and lean into what he's saying instead of trusting what we are saying to ourselves.

Marriage Success  Giving your Spouse the Best Banana

 What are your favourite marriage tips? We heard a few today and here are some interesting ones..

1. Talk to your spouse more kindly than you talk to anyone else in the world. Too often we speak the most harshly to those closest to us.

2. Remember that marriage is less about marrying the right person and more about becoming the right person.

3. Don’t forget to laugh. Most couples spend the majority of their time talking logistics: who’s doing the grocery shopping, who’s calling the repairman, who’s picking up the kids. A relationship can’t survive on logistics. Have a water fight instead.

4. She needs you to be her best friend. Everyday, talk to her and tell her what you’re thinking. Even if you don’t think you’re thinking about anything. She needs to hear your heart.

5. He needs you to be his cheerleader. Let him know you believe he can take on the world.

The Peppa Pig effect and all the mums say YIKES!

Would you read the Bible plan, Trust, with me?

Click on the image above to join Dan and Joy on this 7 day journey.

 “If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land.” From Isaiah chapter 1 verse 19.

Throughout our lives we are commanded to obey. Whether it be a parent telling us, “Pick that up,” or, “Don’t do that,” or a government laying down a law, we acknowledge obedience as a necessary part of life. 

No matter how good the lawmaker, parent, friend, or teacher, no one truly knows the future like God does.

Isaiah 1:19 promises us, “If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land.” God asks for us to be obedient to him because his plan is always for our betterment. He sees what lies ahead of us.

Ask yourself; Why do you have a hard time obeying God’s word or his promptings? 

Trust? Too big of an issue to trust God with? Would you rather do it yourself?
