The American Academy of Pediatricians announced new guidelines for kids and online media. First, they threw out the no-screens-before-age-2 rule. Replacing it with a more nuanced rule. For babies younger than 18 months, no screens EXCEPT Facetime with extended family members. For 15 month to 2 years, screens should not be viewed alone, but only with a parent who is involved, treating the media as if it were a picture book being explored together.
For a more detailed look at the new recommendations, here’s an article and audio clip from NPR: American Academy Of Pediatrics Lifts ‘No Screens Under 2’ Rule.
See ya on the Net,

New Yorker: Bob Dylan, the Beat Generation, and Allen Ginsberg's America
The New Yorker publishes an excerpt from the 2010 book “Bob Dylan in America,” by the historian Sean Wilentz. “Dylan’s continuing link to the Beat generation, though, came chiefly through his friend and sometime mentor Allen Ginsberg. Dylan’s link with Ginsberg dated back to the end of 1963, a pivotal moment in the lives and careers of both men.”
