you have to do for school? well, christin's here to help, with this week's make the grade. - look, we all know it's hard to get to sleep when there's so much to do. but here are some ideas for making the most of the sleep you do get. wi long before you go to bed, avoid anythingcaffeine. for example, coffee, tea, soda or chocolate. even when not wired with caffeine, many of us lie awake trying to remember all the things so, write a note to yourself about what you need to do tomorrow. no longer having to worry about forgetting should let you relax. try to aim for the same beime every night.dt that helps train your mind and body to get ready for sleep. and say no to technology as you get close to bedtime. that means no phone calls, messaging, no computers, no tv, nada!
in your body that prevent you from falling asleep. and that can be a real nightmare. i'm christin here to help you make the grade. (soft upbeat music) - over the years, teen kids news has reported on a growing medical problem among american teens, diabetes. there are two forms of diabetes. there'pe one which is basicallys ty and then there's tis mostly o which by poor eating habits and lack of exercise. aziana was 11 when she found out that, like her m had type two die - i seen my mom and like she takes medicine, i like didn't want to do that. really bad news. - now, he - both type one and type etes are increasing two diab in american children.
ublic he okay, so what is diabetes? - it affects your blood sugar. - it doesn't' stay the way it normally would in a like a healthy person. - diabetes is a condition that occurs when the body either doesn't make enough insulin or doesn't respond normally to the insulin that it makes. - insulin is a hormone that most of us naturally make in our body. insulin converts sugar into energy. so those with type one diabetes were born with ainability to process sugar.n with lots of sugar, you can develop type two diabetes. bottom line, whether type one or type two you don't have the natural insulin you need. - and as a result, the blood sugar levels rise, and that rise in blood sugar can cause damage to the various organs of the body, the eyes, the kidneys, the blood vessels. and that's what diabetes is all about.
cott] tly after he learned that his body wasn't making enough insulin. he has type one diabetes.rs . skyler carefully monito that means measuring the amount of sugar that's in his bloodstream throughout the day, especially after eating. he gives himself insulin shots to bring his sugar levels into proper balance. - i eat th lunch and i just eat what they give me.es and i try to count my corie pointsal and put as much insulin in me as i need for that one meal. and was constantly thirsty. - i had no clue what i was going through. - he has type two diabetes. some other t symptoms are feeling tired,ypl and having to visit the bathroom frequently. unlike type one, which is mostly dictated by our genes, type two is something we can develop and therefore can often avoid. sadly, diabetes is getting worse in this country.
- most of it is due to the obesity epidemic in children. we saw similar increases in white and black children. the largest increase we saw was in hpanic children.is - type one diabetes has also increased by 21%. clearly, this is an important issue that we all need to take very seriously. it can be deadly. so far, there's no cure for diabetes. but it can be managed. eat healthy foods, exerc i manage my weight and i take my medication on a regular basis. - the best advice give otd is just to keep their head high and keep a posbeing born with geness it.p - we can't that give us type one diabetes. but we can fight getting type two diabetes. cut down on the sugar, especially in soft drinks. even some juices have too much sugar to be healthy.
(upbeat music) on simple things that can make a big difference in the lives of people living in poverty. especially girls because they're most often the victims of abuse and misfortune. all of these ideas come from the book one hundred tools for empowering global women. with us again is its author, betsy teustch, hi. - great to be back, thanks for having me.
e useful? - urine is actually extremely beneficial. first of all, it's important to know that human urine is essentially sterile. it doesn't have pathogens in it, so it's relatively safe after it's been stored for a month. it's full of nitrogen. that's the main ingredient of pee, after water, and nitrogen is what is the main ingredient in fertilizer. they grow much bigger and faste r. and in places where the earth is very depleted, and they don't, they used to let the earth replenish itself by leaving a field fallow, but population pressures make that more and more difficult, to just leave a field open.
it's very hard to get it there. so if farmers, and about half of the world's farmers in the developing world are women, if they can have access to something as simple as pee, and it helps grow their crops much bigger, it's great. - are you suggesting american teens send their pee p tooor countries? - i don't think that's a great idea,do tht but i learning more about ts one has just plain water, and the other has urine, and the urine fertilized crop is like this, and the one with just plain water is like this. so you can prove that it really works and organic gardeners do use this on an individual basis. in the developing world, the big challenge
hat we want to do, is help organizations that educate farmers, get the word out. - so how can teens do that? - you can get involved by researching online, or in my book, different organizations that promote this, and there's one right in new england, called the rich earth institute, that is promoting this technique, pee cycling. - wow, never would i have thought of that, thanks betsy. e - this is just one of th m. if urine as fertilizer doesn't excite you, maybe one of the other 99 ideas will. for teen kids news, i'm eden. - it's time for another important message, brought to you by the national road safety foundation.

- on t coast of scotlandhen is the historic town of st. andrews. it has the ruins of an ancient castle. and it's home to one of the oldest english-speaking universities in the world. but the town owns its international fame to a game. in 1457, king james the second was angry that instead of practicing for war, his nobles were playing a game where they hit a ball it was the game of golf. while there's some dispute as to exactly when and where golf was invented, there's no dispute that st. andrew's is considered the home of modern golf. there are no fewer than seven golf courses here. while there have been various games where a rock or pebble is hit with a stick the scots get credit for making one indispensable addition, the hole.
s have been female. - in fact over the years, teen kids news has often reported on golf phenom michelle wei. - [narrator] michelle is a member of a new league of players who are shaking up the golf world. - she made history when she became the youngest golfer ever to play in the us women's amateur championship. and she waonly 10 years old!s professional golf, i'd say either putt up or shut up! for teen kids news, i'm nicole. (upbeat music) - not thhe nude,at you'd ever want to cycle in t but if you were looking for a place to do it, consider vermont. a number of years ago, more than 40 people decided to pedal through the state capital of montpelier
in montpelier taking off your clothes in public is against the law. so were the cyclists arrested? no, because while it's illegal to take off your clothes in public, it's not illegal to be naked in public. so the cyclists simply took off their clothes before they arrived in town. but i have to admit the logic of that law escapes me.
- i know to add nuts to salads and ice cream but you're saying nuts can play a far bigger role during meal time, especially during the holidays, right? - yes, we're all about the nuts. this holiday season, and just in general honestly. - can you give us an example of an easy recipe? - a great thing that i love, you know, i have an almost teenager myself, and i think cooking with mom and dad, or just dad, in the kitchen is a great simple thing to do. and lemon juice and make a savory vinaigrette that has such great texture. i love to drizzle it on roasted vegetables, kind of a cool twist on, or s a more classical say lemon and olive oil dressing. i have even taken this walnut vinaigrette and just drizzled it on roasted chicken, so good. a little chicken, a little oregano, roast it,
and just part of my partnership with fisher nuts. you can go to fishernuts.com, they have so many great ideas. - people avoid nuts because they thinksome they're fattening, is that true? - well if think that if you take an ingredie'snt in it natural form that has no preservatives, while nuts certainly have their fair share of calories, it's such a healthy form, such a healthy form of fat, it's so many great ingredients, or so many great vitamins. a bag of potato chips, it's got a ton of calories, you're hungry after. if you have a handful of walnuts you certainly don't feel the same way. so i think it's about feeling satisfied for your calories and nuts it's a win, win to me. - and i guess we don't need to just use nutsour h. for thin- yeah, i of nuts as something that goes into a cookie or a brownie or a pie and that's certainly true but,
for example, almonds soaked in water and blended, a great substitute for dairy and milk in a lot of recipes. s give also, just nut body and i don't think we think about that, they're rich they have great taste,ans they co add such great texture. - alex, thanks for joining us. - thank you. ts are actually a super food- nu which means they're packed with lots of nutrients and they have health benefits. so whether you snack on a handful regularly you'd be nuts not to make them a part of your diet, unless you're allergic of course. for teen kids news, i'm katie. - that's our show for this week. but be sure to tune in again next week for more teen kids news, bye.
