Strengthening the Health of the First-Grader

The traditional bustle in the last days of August does not allow children and their parents to relax. Children are growing and now they have to go to school. Do we need to prepare for school and how to do it? This question inevitably arises before parents. The development of all physical qualities of the future first-grader suçh as agility, endurance, flexibility and speed require attention. Endurance is closely related to efficiency – a quality without which success in any activity is impossible. It is also necessary for our future student. Very carefully you need to monitor the posture of the child. During classes, when playing games and at the table, do not forget to remind the child how to sit at the table correctly. Especially pay attention to the fact that the back of the child, when sitting, touches the back of the chair, and the forearms lie freely on the table. Daylight should fall on the left, then the shadow from the hand will not lie on the notebook. Put a table lamp on the left, the light should not be scattered – prepare a lamp, the power of the light bulb should be 40–60 watts. How to determine the most optimal distance from the eyes to a notebook or book? The fingertips of the child’s hand, when placed the arm on the elbow, should freely reach the temple – if these parameters are observed, visual fatigue will be minimal.

Sea of Peace, Stability and Partnership

Since 2006, five Caspian Sea states, including Turkmenistan have observed the Caspian Sea Day on August 12. International meetings, scientific conferences, roundtables of environmental scientists, youth events and environmental actions are held to mark this date. Turkmenistan that is committed to maintaining peace and cooperation in the Caspian Sea region promotes a constructive dialogue based on respect for national interests of all parties and joint efforts in the implementation of promising regional projects on the entire spectrum of Caspian Sea issues. The illustrative examples include the Caspian Environment Programme (CEP), which was implemented in several stages from 1998 to 2010. The main outcome of the Programme is the adoption of the Framework Convention for the Protection of the Marine Environment of the Caspian Sea (Tehran Convention), which for a long time remained the only legal document obligatory for all the Caspian Sea states (the Caspian Sea Day marks the adoption of the Tehran Convention). One of the proposals of our country is to revive the CEP in a new format, taking into account modern realities and the newly adopted five-sided documents, in particular, the Convention on the Legal Status of the Caspian Sea.
