The Missiles of October | Papa Dukie (Love is a beautiful thing)
– Poul Pedersen and the Missiles of October Band perform “Papa Dukie (Love is a beautiful thing)” live:
“Back in the day In our sleepy little town
Out of nowhere A hippie band came around
They set up camp (Down by the river)
Close to So So Curve (behind the levee)
Folks said stay away (them people are dirty)
Tell deputy Momio get down there in a hurry

Study says teens are spending nearly all their waking hours staring at screens
– Business Insider
“Facebook, news apps, Snapchat — there’s endless temptation for bored teens to take out their smartphones and scroll.
The Washington Post recently wrote an in-depth piece on kids these days and their social media usage, and in it was this startling statistic, courtesy a 2015 study by the nonprofit group Common Sense Media: Teens are spending nearly nine hours a dayconsuming media.
And children ages eight to 12 are spending nearly six hours a day doing the same thing.
Let’s say the average teen wakes up at 7 a.m. and goes to bed at 10 p.m. — that means that nine of their 15 waking hours are spent on their phones, computers, or tablets. The rest of those six hours are likely spent in school.
To put that in perspective, that’s nearly double the time that the average American spends looking at their phones.
The kids themselves estimate they’re spending much less time looking at their screens. Another related Washington Post story, “Who are these kids?”, went inside the Center for Generational Kinetics, a consulting firm that studies Generation Z and spends time talking to teens and tweens about their phone habits. According to researchers at the firm, teens spend between two and five hours a day in front of screens.”
