Bad Apples / Layar Digital Menggangu Tidur Dan Cara Agar Anak Tidur Nyenyak
« Last post by baikuntukku on April 13, 2015, 04:06:13 PM »
Bebaskan Imajinasimu

Sebuah penelitian dipublikasikan dalam jurnal JAMA Pediatrics yang dilakukan terhadap anak usia 10 - 14 tahun yang menyebutkan bahwa fasilitas televisi di kamar anak akan membuat mereka menjadi lebih gemuk sekitar 0,4 kg dibandingkan dengan anak lain yang tidak memiliki fasilitas televisi di kamarnya.

Sinar terang dari televisi dan atau gadget menghambat ritme sirkadian tubuh. Ritme sirkadian adalah waktu 24-jam dalam tubuh yang akan memberitahu kapan Anda perlu tidur. Sebuah penelitian menyebutkan cahaya layar dari televisi atau gadget di sore dan malam hari akan mengganggu tidur, karena hal tersebut membuat otak mengira masih siang hari. Hal ini bisa menunda siklus tidur hingga enam sampai delapan jam, yang menyebabkan anak mengalami efek seperti jet lag.

Bahkan, meski anak-anak itu jarang menonton televisi di kamar. Menurut Diane Gilbert-Diamond dari Geisel School of Medicine di Dartmouth, Lebanon, yang melakukan penelitian, pertambahan berat badan ini sebenarnya tidak berhubungan dengan berapa lama waktu yang dihabiskan anak-anak untuk menonton televisi, tapi lebih disebabkan oleh pola tidur yang terganggu akibat adanya benda elektronik di dalam kamar tidur anak.

Perhatikan ini : Jika anak kurang tidur di malam hari, ia menjadi sulit dibangunkan esok paginya. Ia menjadi pemarah, hiperaktif, dan sulit konsentrasi.

Hal-hal berikut harus Ibu perhatikan agar anak dapat tidur dengan nyenyak:
Pilihan Kasur: Banyak jenis kasur yang bisa ibu pilih: pegas, kapuk, busa dan sebagainya. Apapun pilihan Ibu, pastikan kasur tersebut cukup kokok sehingga tubuh anak tak melesak ke dalamnya. Pilih juga bahan yang tak membuatnya alergi atau mengundang debu dan tungau.

Suhu ruangan: Terlalu dingin atau terlalu panas tentu akan membuat anak tidak nyaman. Saat menggunakan AC, pasang pada suhu 24 derajat Celcius. Meskipun kita tinggal di iklim tropis namun pada malam hari suhu cenderung turun.

Pencahayaan: Biasakan untuk mematikan lampu kamar saat tidur. Atau pasang lampu tidur di dekat kasur. Pilih lampu tidur berwarna kuning teduh agar suasana kamar mendukung untuk tidur.

Vancouver Canucks centre Ryan Kesler was doing damage control after practice on Thursday, refuting a report that hes asked for a trade. "I never commented to anyone that I wanted out," he explained. "My heart is with this group and making the playoffs." Kesler added that the rumours are "completely false" that he asked to be traded - recently or ever. "I dont want to talk about this," he continued. "I dont want this to be a distraction...Im happy to be here." While theres lots of speculation that the Canucks could be looking to move the 29-year-old centre, TVA Sports reported on Wednesday night that Kesler approached the team requesting to be dealt. Speaking to Adrian Dater of The Denver Post on Wednesday night, Keslers agent Kurt Overhardt also denied the story, calling it "a bunch of B.S." Kesler, 29, is recovering from a hand injury and did not dress on Wednesday night for Vancouvers post-Olympic opener against the St. Louis Blues. He hopes to play Friday night when the Canucks host the Minnesota Wild. He has two more years remaining on a six-year, $30 million contract, which pays him $5 million in each of the next two seasons. "Whether he wants to go or stay, hes not going anywhere," Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo told reporters. "We all know how this script ends." nfl jerseys china .

Jones had to work hard against Korean skip Kim Jisun and didnt hold a lead until the seventh end. Jones, lead Dawn McEwen, second Jill Officer and third Kaitlyn Lawes were 8-0 going into the game and had already clinched a berth in the semifinals. PHILADELPHIA -- For the Philadelphia Eagles to go worst-to-first in the NFC East, they had to win at home. Bye-bye, losing streak. Nick Foles threw for 298 yards and spun free for a touchdown, LeSean McCoy ran for two scores and the Eagles snapped a 10-game losing skid at Lincoln Financial Field with a 24-16 victory over the Washington Redskins on Sunday. A year after finishing 4-12 under Andy Reid, Chip Kelly had guided his Eagles (6-5) to the division lead. Theyre a half-game ahead of idle Dallas (5-5). The defending division champion Redskins rallied in the fourth quarter but fell short, dropping to 3-7. "I dont look at it globally," Kelly said. "We have five games in December and we put ourselves in position where those games are meaningful. Well see where were at Dec. 29." The Eagles hadnt won at home in 413 days since defeating the New York Giants on Sept. 30, 2012. Theyll enter their bye week on a three-game winning streak, having turned things around after consecutive home losses last month. "Not one person on this team was defeated," Foles said. "Everybody in our locker room believed we can win and if you feel that way, its something special. We have to keep the momentum going." Down 24-0 in the fourth quarter, the Redskins rallied behind Robert Griffin IIIs TD passes of 62 yards to Darrel Young and 41 yards to Aldrick Robinson and both 2-point conversions. RG3 then drove the Redskins to the Eagles 18 before his pass off his back foot was intercepted by Brandon Boykin in the end zone. "I was trying to throw the ball in the back of the end zone," he said. "It didnt get to where I wanted it to go. Obviously I was on my heels. Something I can definitely learn from." Foles didnt throw any TD passes after tossing 10 in the past two games. But he still hasnt thrown an interception this year, extending his streak to 199 passes without a pick. Foles tied an NFL record with seven TD passes in a win at Oakland two weeks ago and followed it with three more in a victory at Green Bay. McCoy finished with 77 yards rushing and 73 receiving. He leads the NFL with 1,009 yards on the ground. Foles had a career-best 47 yards rushing. "Were all playing as one," McCoy said. "Earlier in the year, the offence was playing goodd and defence wasnt or defence was playing good and offence wasnt.dddddddddddd Now were clicking. The Redskins started their last drive at their 4 with 3:26 left after a 70-yard punt by Donnie Jones. Griffin completed a 28-yard pass to Santana Moss on third-and-25 and Washington eventually moved to the 18 before the pick. Griffin was 17 of 35 for 264 yards and ran for 44 yards. "Took us until the fourth quarter to make a couple plays," Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said. "We had our opportunity at the end. Just couldnt take advantage of it." A 33-27 win at Washington in the season opener kick-started the Kelly Era and raised expectations in what was supposed to be a rebuilding year. The Eagles lost the next three games before winning five of seven. Foles replaced an injured Michael Vick in the first half of a victory at the Giants on Oct. 6, and has led the Eagles to a 4-1 record since. The Redskins couldnt generate much offence until Griffin connected with Young after scrambling early in the fourth quarter. He hit Nick Williams on the conversion. Robinson made a nice adjustment to catch Griffins underthrown deep pass for the next score, and RG3 dived in from the 2 for the conversion. But Washington couldnt complete the comeback. Foles ran in from the 4 for a 7-0 lead, even showing some athleticism with a spin move after getting hit at the 2 and then reaching for the end zone. A 49-yard pass to McCoy set up the score. One play after Brent Celek turned a tight-end screen pass into a 42-yard gain, McCoy ran in untouched from the 1. The Redskins drove to the Eagles 8 before Griffin was sacked by Connor Barwin and fumbled. The ball popped straight up and was recovered by Fletcher Cox. The Eagles turned that into a 24-yard field goal by Alex Henery to make it 17-0. McCoy left briefly after injuring his right hamstring in the second quarter and scored on a 1-yard run to put the Eagles up 24-0 in the third. NOTES: LB Mychal Kendricks (knee), S Earl Wolff (knee), and CB Bradley Fletcher (pectoral) were Philadelphias injured defensive starters. ... Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion), DE Stephen Bowen (knee) and WR Leonard Hankerson (knee) left the game. ...

Quintana, who is famed for his climbing skills, finished eight seconds ahead of Ryder Hesjedal. Pierre Rolland was third, 1:13 slower, on the 139-kilometre (86-mile) route from Ponte di Legno to Val Martello -- half of which was uphill. The 24-year-old Quintana -- one of the race favourites -- started the day 2 minutes and 40 seconds behind former leader Rigoberto Uran but beat his fellow Colombian by more than four minutes. Uran slipped to second, 1:41 behind Quintana, who showed he has recovered from a difficult opening two weeks, in which he suffered badly from a crash and also had to take antibiotics to fight a chest cold and fever. "It was raining a lot. We couldnt see any motorcycle. We all knew it was very dangerous," Quintana said. "We climbed the Stelvio together, and we all started to descend. There were four or five of us who pulled clear of the group. "I went at my rhythm. I gave everything today. I was climbing well in the end." Cadel Evans was third, 3:21 behind Quintana, and only five seconds ahead of Rolland, with other rivals also gaining time on the Australian. It was the first time both the Gavia and the Stelvio had been climbed on the same day and the stage was an exact copy of one of the legs in last years Giro, which had to be altered because of bad weather. There were fears the weather would again affect the stage this year and there was brief confusion as it was wrongly reported the route down the Stelvio had been neutralized with blizzards and rain making the technical descent even more treacherous. Some teams as well as the person responsible for the Giros official twitter acccount misinterpreted instructions to be careful on the descent, with riders slowing down at the top, wrongly understanding it to have been neutralized.dddddddddddd "The communication was badly interpreted by some teams," race director Mauro Vegni said. "The indications only highlighted the danger of several curves in a risky part of the descent. It was never said that the race was neutralized or that they shouldnt race." Several team directors continued to insist they had been told by the race radio to tell their cyclists the descent had been neutralized. That came after the cyclists had already dealt with heavy fog and snow on the Gavia. There was a group of 10 cyclists in the break which led up up the Stelvio and although, they had a lead of over two minutes, that started to come down on the climb. Dario Cataldo attacked 2km (1.2 mile) from the summit and went on to claim the Cima Coppi prize, awarded to the cyclist who crosses the highest point of the race first. He sped down the descent, as confusion appeared to reign in the peloton, with some cyclists sitting up and taking time to put on warmer clothing. Quintana went clear of Uran, and his chasing group was 1:20 behind Cataldo as the latter started the final climb up Val Martello, with the maglia rosa group more than two minutes further back. The Colombian and Rolland attacked with 18km (11 miles) remaining and caught Cataldo shortly afterward. Hesjedal caught up with the leading trio and Cataldo was then dropped as the leaders upped their pace. They continued to distance the overall leaders and Quintana accelerated with 7.5km (4.6 miles) to go, as the gradient ramped up to 14%. Rolland and Hesjedal managed to stay with Quintana, but had no response when the Movistar rider upped the pace yet again on an equally steep part just inside the final kilometre. cheap jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '

SAN DIEGO -- Finally, Edinson Volquez got his first win with San Diego, and the Padres became the last NL team to get to 10 victories. Volquez got some help from the bullpen to earn his first victory in seven starts and Yonder Alonso drove in two runs to lead the Padres to a 3-2 victory against the Colorado Rockies on Monday night. "About time," said Volquez, acquired from Cincinnati in the off-season. "It feels good. I dont care how I win the game, but I want to win." Volquez (1-2) allowed two runs and five hits in 5 1-3 innings, struck out five and walked four. His ERA went up slightly, to 2.98. "Tonight I wasnt sharp like my last three games," Volquez said. "It happens sometimes. Sometimes you feel like you have nothing and tonight was one of those days. The bullpen came on and did a pretty good job." He allowed a run in the sixth on two singles and a walk before being relieved by Joe Thatcher with runners on first and second and one out. Thatcher struck out Todd Helton before Brad Brach came on and caught Michael Cuddyer looking at strike three. Carlos Gonzalez singled in a run that inning to pull the Rockies to 3-2. "Good W for Eddie. He deserved it. He pitched well," manager Bud Black said. "He battled his tail off today. Found a little bit of a groove in the middle of the game ... then it sort of left him again. But he battled. He really couldnt find the consistency of any of his pitches. It just goes to show you how this game it. He ended up getting the win on probably one of those starts where he wasnt his sharpest. "That was a typical Petco Game where it comes down at the end to relief work or a big hit, and today was relief work and the Rockies didnt get the big hit," Black said. The Rockies were held to five hits. "Thats not enough to win a game here," Rockies manager Jim Tracy said, "especially when you have two guys that have two hits each." The Rockies lost their fourth straight game and their shaky rotation took another hit. Left-hander Drew Pomeranz left with a bruised right quad in the fourth, two innings after he was hit by a line drive by Volquez. Pomeranz stuck around long enough to hit his first career homer, driving a ball off the facade of the second-deck in left field off Volquez with one out in the third. Pomeranz was hit on the right leg by Volquezs liner with one out in the second. He fielded the ball and threw out Volquez. He was checked by the trainer and stayed in the game. Tracy said he doesnt think Pomeranz will miss his next start. Pomeranz (0-2) was the fourth straight Rockies starter who failed to reach the sixth inning. He allowed three runs and five hits in three innings, walked three and struck out two. Alonso singled in runs in the first and third innings. Another run scored in the second on a wild pitch. Dale Thayer pitched the ninth for his second career save and first since his major league debut on May 22, 2009, at Florida while with Tampa Bay. NOTES: The Rockies rescinded the option to RHP Jhoulys Chacin to Triple-A Colorado Springs and placed him on the 15-day disabled list with inflammation in his right shoulder.

The 40-year-old midfielder was put in charge on Tuesday when David Moyes reign ended after 10 months with the defending champions in seventh place in the English Premier League. Speaking publicly for the first time since his temporary appointment, Giggs provided an insight into what he has told the squad about Saturdays match against Norwich at Old Trafford. "I trust you and I know what youre capable of, and go out there and show it on Saturday, and give the fans something to shout about," Giggs said on Friday. "Entertain them, score goals, make tackles, play with speed, play with tempo." Giggs is expected to manage the team for only the remaining four matches of the season before a more experienced successor to Moyes is appointed. "It has been a difficult week for the club and its been a bit of a whirlwind week for me but one Ive enjoyed," Giggs said. "It has been different, chaotic, and Ive been getting a little taste as its my fourth day in the job." Giggs came through the youth ranks at Old Trafford and was part of the famed "Class of 92" youth team that helped contribute to so much of the clubs success under Alex Ferguson, who retired last year after more than 26 years in charge. "Ive had to take a bit of stick (ffrom the players)," Giggs said.dddddddddddd "Things like, Where are you going to park? What do we call you? "The players have been great and the reaction in training has been sharp. Ive just tried to make things relaxed and for everyone to enjoy themselves ... lets have a good end to what has been a frustrating and disappointing season." The clubs most decorated player, who has made 962 appearances, is still in the squad and could pick himself to play against Norwich. "Ive just given myself a five-year contract," Giggs joked. "I havent done much this week but am still involved as a player as well." Giggs is being assisted by former teammates Phil Neville, Nicky Butt and Paul Scholes as he tries to stabilize a team in turmoil. "Its the proudest moment of my life," Giggs said. "Ive supported Manchester United all my life. Its been the biggest part of my life since I was 14, when I signed schoolboy forms. Im proud, happy, a little bit nervous but just like I am as a player, I cant wait for the game on Saturday." Moyes can now prepare for the future after finally agreeing on his severance package with United on Friday. "Terms of settlement have been agreed between the club and David Moyes in respect of the termination of his employment," the League Managers Association said in a statement. "A settlement agreement is in the process of being finalized." cheap jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '

MILAN, Italy -- Inter Milan twice squandered the lead and missed a penalty as its Europa League hopes were dented by a 2-2 draw at home to relegation-threatened Bologna in Serie A on Saturday. Mauro Icardi scored twice for Inter but his goals were cancelled out by Michele Pazienza and Panagiotis Kone. Substitute Diego Milito had his penalty saved by Bologna goalkeeper Gianluca Curci six minutes from time after Rodrigo Palacio was hauled down by Andrea Mantovani. Inter, which was booed off the pitch at halftime and full time, remained fifth but Atalanta can close the gap to one point with a win over Sassuolo on Sunday. "I havent been talking about bad luck, but just certain episodes," Inter coach Walter Mazzarri said. "You only need to look at the goals we concede. A counterattack can happen, but the first equalizer went through a thousand legs. ... But thats our year. Its the fourth time weve thrown away points like this in a match we deserved to win." Bologna moved level with Chievo Verona, which lost a city derby 1-0 against Hellas Verona. They are two points above the relegation zone ahead of the rest of the weekends fixtures. Inter got off to a perfect start when Icardi volleyed home Yuto Nagatomos cross with less than six minutes on the clock. Bologna levelled 10 minutes from halftime. Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanovic made a fantastic save to deny Lazaros Christodoulopoulos from close range but the ball came out to Pazienza who drove a low shot in from the edge of the area. Icardi doubled his tally shortly after the hour mark when he curled a stunning effort from outside the area into the top far corner off the inside of the post. Inters defence was caught napping for Bolognas second equalizer 10 minutes later as Esteban Cambiasso and Rolando completely failed to deal with a cross and Kone tapped it in from five yards. Inter could have scored a late winner when it was awarded its first penalty of the season but Milito failed to get any power behind his spot kick and Curci parried comfortably. Bologna should have snatched a win but Handanovic pulled off a fantastic double save to deny substitute Robert Acquafresca from point-blank range. Luca Toni struck again in Verona. The Chievo defence failed to deal with a cross in the 65th minute and the 36-year-old Toni slotted home from six yards for his third goal in two matches and his 16th of the season. Verona had gone close to breaking the deadlock on several occasions, notably on the stroke of halftime when Hallfredssons 25-yard effort crashed off the top corner of the frame of the goal. Chievo almost snatched a draw but Cyril Thereau volleyed into the sidenetting. Verona moved provisionally a point off the Europa League places. Michael Jordan White Sox Jersey .

Maria Silvia Bastos Marques, president of the EOM (Municipal Olympic Company), will be leaving her post but will remain as an advisor, a city hall statement said Tuesday.It is the middle of May of 1987 and the J2 class of St Peters Primary School are heading north on the M6 motorway back to Preston. The kids on the bus had spent the day having a school trip visiting some local landmark, the kind of day the children looked forward to for months, an escape away from the classroom setting. At the back of the bus the boys, aged 8 and 9, are getting rowdier but none of the discussions centre around the museum they found themselves at earlier. Instead, the topic of conversation is the upcoming FA Cup Final at Wembley. It is the biggest football match of the season and even the pale, skinny kid with glasses has an opinion on it. Tottenham Hotspur are the favourites and no one on this bus is giving their opponents, Coventry City, a chance. Well, no one except me. I think they will win. I am laughed at almost as much as when my dad took me to get my hair cut two years earlier and it was the shortest cut in the school. It took a while for the hair to grow back and the laughing to stop but this time the laughing wouldnt last nearly as long. In less than two days, every one of those boys would be in front of the television on Saturday afternoon watching the great Wembley Stadium set the stage for another team to climb the stairs and lift the famous cup. The year before, the boys had all watched Ian Rush and Liverpool beat Everton in a wonderfully entertaining final. It was a game that would stay with them forever, whether you supported either of the team teams or not. Tottenham versus Coventry turned out to be even better. Spurs led 1-0 and 2-1 but were pegged back twice, sending the game into extra time before the underdogs scored the fifth and final goal, that deflected off Spurs defender Gary Mabbutt and into his own net. The Sky Blues had won the FA Cup and I had won a tremendous amount of respect. There were no cell phones or email. Yet, everyone had watched it and in Monday morning assembly youd have thought I was playing for Coventry that day. Perhaps, I thought, I have a brain for this game. Twelve and a half years later I am on a bus again. This time I am heading south on the M6 motorway. It is November 1999. I am a journalist travelling with tiny football club Bamber Bridge, an amateur club that has reached the second round of the FA Cup for the first time ever. Brig, as they are affectionately known by the 500 or so fans who watch them each week, had started their FA Cup run months earlier and had found their way past the pre rounds, through the first round proper (as it is known) and into the second round, where they have been drawn at Cambridge United, members of the fourth tier of English professional leagues. Bamber Bridge might have been playing FA Cup games since September but the big teams, from Englands top two divisions, wouldnt enter the competition for one more round. Win this game and tiny Bamber Bridge are in the last 64 with the giants of English football. The players bus, where I sit alone close to the front, is full of spirit and the senior players come up one-by-one to tell a story of inspiration. Brigs star striker includes me in his speal, but it is far from positive. Turns out the part-time footballer, full-time postman wasnt too happy with the message I had delivered to my readers about his poor form earlier this season. Now the team was headed to the lofty heights of Abbey Stadium he had chosen his moment to pick on the young writer. The four hour journey turns out to be more entertaining than the match, endless amounts of buses cross paths at junctions and traffic lights, some full of fans, others full of players, all headed in one direction - towards FA Cup glory. Later that day Bamber Bridge lose 1-0 to a penalty that should never have been awarded. The full-time postman misses a sitter. I deliver that message to my readers. Brig havent come close to the second round proper since. Cambridge draw Crystal Palace in the plum third round draw and beat them, marching all the way to the last 16 where their dream would die against Bolton. They have never been near that round since and are no longer good enough to be in the top four leagues of professional football. At least both teams have their FA Cup memories. And that is where the FA Cup is most fondly thought of. Stuck in the minds of people like a special vault, sending them back to a time less complicated, the FA Cup has become a modern day victim battered aside by the influx of the Premier League, satellite television and the breathtaking growth of the European Cup, now named after champions that doesnt feature just champions. Of course, it still delivers special moments each year and it currently resides in Wigan, of all places, after the relegated Premier League side stunned Manchester City last May in the final. I am sure some nine-year-old boy somewhere picked Wigan to win that day and got laughed at. What I am not so sure about, however, is that those who laughed at him watched the game. The streets of England on FA Cup final day used to be full of women shopping. Men and boys were in front of the television. These days the game comes as an inconvenience to some, no longer always placed at the end of the football season when the league campaigns are finished. The fact that it is the traditional closer to this season again is romantic but it has been moved once and will be moved again. It is a competition badly in need of being loved again yet it continues to be cast aside for the biggger, flashier Premier League encounters.dddddddddddd The draw for the last 64 used to be another special moment, circled on the calendar for all football fans. When giants could be given minnows or even fellow giants. Yet, this season the draw for the third round of the FA Cup took place when Arsenal were playing Everton in a highly entertaining Premier League match at the Emirates. The eyes of the football world were placed on that game and not even a draw that pitted Arsenal and Tottenham together could overtake Evertons comeback to the main story in newspapers and websites the next day. It was a fitting moment. The FA Cup isnt in the shadows of the league, it is hiding around the corner trembling at the very site of it. And yet when it gets its moment in the sun it has sadly become an awkward distraction from the weekly rolling circus known worldwide as the Barclays Premier League. This season the FA Cups rounds 3 through 5 has been set aside dates on the weekends of January 4-5, January 25-26 and February 18-19. Three weekends that have been kept free completely by the Premier League. Three weekends out of the first seven weeks of 2014 that no Premier League matches will be watched by the billions who tune in worldwide. Not exactly ideal. Three weekends that will see crowds down everywhere as football fans, forced to pay extra money on top of their season ticket price, decide against going to watch FA Cup matches. Last January, eventual winners Wigan Athletic drew 1-1 at home to Bournemouth in round three and just over 8,000 fans showed up to watch the game. An-all Premier League third round game between QPR and West Brom was watched by 8,984 people.  Less and less people are caring every year and if it continues along this path it wont be long before it becomes similar to its far poorer off cousin, the league cup, who, despite its name changes for sponsors, remains the same; a competition for the reserves until the real later stages. The FA Cup badly needs an identity change before it is too late. Next week the Premier League embarks on its busiest period. Teams play four games between December 21 and January 1. While leagues in Germany, Spain and Italy take a short winter break, the Premier League marches on, asking their teams to play a moronic schedule that suits nobody. Squads are tested to needless limits with some teams having to play four high intense Premier League games in nine days. A winter break at this time in England should not be implemented, despite statements by Arsene Wenger and others suggesting otherwise. Playing games over the Christmas period is a tradition English football should keep, a tradition that looks after fans actually in the stadiums (a rarity in an era dominated by television revenue) and able to go to games on special days like Boxing Day and New Years Day. No one, however, can argue that the current crowded fixture list is good for the game. Thats why a solution to fix the FA Cup, and save the stress on the Premier League teams, should be implemented. In the four upcoming windows of matches - Dec 21-22, Dec 26, Dec 28-29, Jan 1 - the FA Cup should play rounds 3, 4, 5 and 6. By the end of January 1 they should have their semifinalists. No replays, all games end that day. The draw should be made up so the teams know in advance who they will be playing. Think March Madness style for NCAA Basketball in the United States. A 64 team bracket draw is made and if you win on the first weekend, you instantly know who you will face in the next round and so on and so forth. It is a system that can benefit all. If Wenger and his colleagues want to give key players a winter break, go ahead. More teams will get a break by the very fact that only eight teams, from the original 64, will play four matches during that time. The police will know the schedule and can plan ahead of time (a necessary when planning games) for when a certain team may be at home that day. Crowds will be bigger for FA Cup matches because football fans in England love to go to games at this time of year. Some fans will not get to see their teams play on Boxing Day or New Years Day, if they have been knocked out, but those days will still feature games involving teams from the two lower divisions of English football, who didnt make the 64, if you are craving a game to watch. The Football Association are constantly thinking of ideas to get Premier League fans to spend money to watch their local, smaller clubs and this is another way of achieving that. The Premier League can go back to playing regularly throughout January and February on the weekends it should and would also avoid a conflict later in round six when all Premier League teams are slated to play on the same weekend as the last eight in the FA Cup (March 8-9 this year). That causes the teams fixture congestion down the stretch, something else this plan avoids, sending the last four all the way through to the semi-finals, which can be played in their usual spot of mid-April. Above all, this plan would bring the FA Cup back from the dead. Playing so many games around the country over such a short amount of time will keep everyones focus on the knock-out competition. Many people are in a great mood at this festive season and what better way to reward them than with a festival of FA Cup football, held over a span lasting less than two weeks. It suits the FA, the Premier League and the players. And, of course, nine-year-old experts. cheap jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
