tv   Good Day New York Street Talk  FOX  August 13, 2016 6:00am-6:30am EDT

6:00 am
? ? >> welcome to "good day street talk," antwan lewis reporting. here's what we're working on today, capturing the playground that is new york city. how one photographer sheds a different kind of lens on the big apple. a little bit later, disabilities, how one organization is helping them gain independence. but first, the signer game pokemon go has taken the world by storm. some are even calling it an addiction. here to discuss this is dr. nicholas kardaras, executive director of the dunes east hampton, wells author of the book "glow kids." good morning and good to see you again, sir. >> good morning, antwan. >> it's everywhere, pokemon go.
6:01 am
just all down and consuming. some are calling it an addiction. it's only been out for a couple of weeks now, so is it safe? some people are saying that's what's going on with this game. >> well, i think there's no question that screen technologies in general are addictive, and most of the world has caught up with that. most of the world in china and japan and korea, they have internet addiction disorder. we know that screen technologies, what video games essentially do -- and the two-dimensional. i'm going to get to pokemon in a second, but two-dimensional video games raise dopamine levels to the same level as sex. there was one really fascinating study by dr. cope that showed that video games -- halo, world of warcraft -- were stimulating for children x they don't have the frontal cortex to have impulse control on those kinds
6:02 am
acknowledged clinically that screens welcome back addicting, and -- can be addicting, and pokemon go brings it to a whole other ball game because of the augmented holographic technology. it's the equivalent of cocaine to crack. pokemon is super addicting. >> when you talk about the effects that it has -- well, let's talk about the signs of cyber addiction, nicholas. what are some of the things people, particularly should be aware of? >> right. we talk about the clinical symptoms in general are is the behavior or the substance taking away from your everyday activities, is it negatively impacting your everyday life. so what that means is, is my schooling beginning to suffer, are hi personal relationships suffering, are hi other activities beginning to suffer? so a participant should look for a kid who used to play baseball who is no longer playing baseball, a kid who used to be a good student who is no longer a
6:03 am
swallowed up by the addiction. the symptoms are essentially the same. and it's engaging in the addictive behavior more and more and more than you intended to engage in. and so i've worked with over a thousand teenagers over the last ten years, and i could tell you that the digital explosion of screen technologies has swallowed up quite a few kids who have had everything from adhd to full-blown psychotic that's the other piece of pokemon go that i really need to emphasize. there's been quite a bit of research. dr. mark griffiths and a doctor in edge land, they did -- there's a phenomenon called game transfer phenomenon. and what that essentially means is that when you have reality blurring types of screen exposure, for children of a certain developmental age who haven't really formed their sense of reality yet, they can have psychotic episodes. so a child that's playing world
6:04 am
a teenager who was playing it 12 hours a day, he had full-blown video game psychosis. he had to be hospitalized for a month because he thought he was in the game. when you take a child who's 8 or 9 years old and their sense of what psychologists call reality testing, are you real, am i real, that's still forming. i'm adding a little augmented reality, that's a hue lis nation. that's effectively a hallucination. children to have digital hallucinations, and we're not seeing that that might be problematic. so the doctors found, they did a study on 1600 gamers, and most of them showed signs of what was called game transfer phenomenon. that's where the game started infusing their waking reality. >> okay. >> they started seeing and hearing aspects of the game in their waking, everyday life. >> so what does the parent do if they, you know, how do you step this to right the wrong, you
6:05 am
if your child is distributing% the symptom toss which you just talked about?% >> right. i can say one thing. i can say that an ounce of prevention is more than a pound of cure when it comes to these kinds of issues. i would say put brakes on before the child engages because having worked at the dunes and at my private practice, it's easier to treat a heroin addict than a digital addict because of the ubiquity of technology, because of a lot of developmental reasons. prevention is bte of a certain age, don't let them immerse themselves in this kind of digital tech. if they've fallen into the rabbit hole, obviously, you want to pull the plug, essentially. we talk about doing digital detoxes. we talk about if your child is exhibiting symptoms of problematic or even addictive video game behavior or pokemon behavior, don't say play for an hour a day. the plug has to be pulled, and usually we find that the digital
6:06 am
hyper-arousing, and they elevate a child's adrenal system. we see kids who have digital addictions are hyperactive and they tend to be very disregulated with their emotions. so they have outbursts when the games are taken away. for them to get back to a normal regulation takes about 4-6 weeks. so unplugging, as difficult as it is for many parents, is the answer. >> tell us about the book, "glow kids." >> compilation of several years of research and 200 peer- reviewed studies that show screen technologies for children are age-inappropriate. the brain of a child is not ready for immersive, interactive screens, so we've seen research that shows screens can be addicting, they can increase expo 9/11 be cially adhd effects, things like anxiety, depression. typically, boys are video games
6:07 am
both are addicting. and it's really a wake-up call to parents and educators to be more cautious and thoughtful. i'm not anti-tech. i've got my screen -- >> right. >> i've got all my technology, but i'm also a certain age. like, i like my car, but i don't want my 9-year-old twins driving my car because it's not age-appropriate for them. my warning to parents and educators is let's be cautious at what age we expose kids to these reality-blurring screens like pokemon and other video games as well. >> very timely. is the book available now? >> available on amazon and at all bookstores. >> congratulations. [laughter] we'll mention this on our web site. always good to talk to you, nicholas. >> all right, antwan, thank you. coming up next, a different

6:10 am
now about that connection is children's photographer jane goodrich who is also the author of "thy is my playground -- new york is my playground, which which is -- we love that. tell me about the title, jane. how'd you come up with that? >> the title just came to me one day when i was just seeing different kids just basically just, they treat new york as their playground, you know? be it, you know, different fire hydrants that they climb or different, you know, counting the taxis. they their playground. >> there's so much, we're looking at video now of how entertaining the city can be for children even outside of your traditional parks and things like that. >> right. >> you capture images and pictures, and where does your passion come from? >> for photographer by? >> yes. >> i think i was born with the bug. and also my older sister had a darkroom in the house, so i was her subject for years. [laughter] it's basically in our blood, to be photographers.
6:11 am
amazing. like this one, the little boy as spider-man which you've captured, you know, catch the bad guys. how did the kids respond when you put campa on them? -- camera on them? did they remain kids, you were yes an observer? >> yes. that's how i have to be. i don't necessarily get the camera out right away. i like to take time to mow the kids and find their passion. the boy was obsessed with spider your spider-man costume, and he just came alive. i like capture kids as they are versus is sit there and smile. >> i was about to ask you the connection. when did you realize that you found children to be the more interesting subject matter than building or even adults, you know? >> i, maybe i'm just a big kid. [laughter] >> we all are. [laughter] >> i've always loved kids. i babysat when i was 10 years old. i just really -- i think i'm a
6:12 am
and they just, they're very in their zen moment at all times. they can find wonder anywhere. and they're just like tiny humans that i just like to be around. >> so tell me about some of the places that you did capture some of these children. we see the fire hydrant. this one's gorgeous, the little girl -- >> yeah. she loved, she lived very close to central park x her favorite thing -- she was only a year and a half, and she just loved music. and so she would just go, she just naturally wen know, she wanted to go close to him. i positioned her slightly on the bench with the mom on the side, but she just started dancing. and that captured her and captured her, you know, her love for the music that she hears throughout the streets of new york. >> did you have one favorite location when you were taking the pictures? >> no, i don't -- >> it is really loaded. [laughter] i don't -- i love different locations for different reasons, you know? i love times square because of the energy and then kids are
6:13 am
hour x then they realize, oh, this is fun, look at the lights or something or just a park where a kid can just go, like, sit is and watch the hudson kid, you know? that was a very loaded question. [laughter] >> the images this here, jane, are just so striking and so gorgeous. >> thank you. >> where can people get this book? >> at local bookstores, support your local bookstores and also amazon and barnes & noble.com too. >> you also on twitter and social >> i am. i'm on twitter. jrgoodrich photo. >> we'll find you.

6:16 am
>> investing just 10% of your time, money and resource toes is all you need to live up to your entrepreneurial dream. joining me now for more is patrick mcginnis, a venture capitalist giving a step-by-step plan on finding the time to do it in his book, "the 10% entrepreneur." interesting title, >> so i actually tarted doing this, investing 10% of my time and money, after my career on wall street blew up. i was working at aig in 2008. you might remember what happened -- >> oh, yes. [laughter] >> so i decided i could never put all my eggs in one basket again. so i decided what would be a meaningful but achievable percentage of all of my resources to allocate boo these side projects? 10% felt about right, and then
6:17 am
world religion, 10% is something people can actually allocate towards a goal or objective. >> right. >> so i felt, you know, if it was good enough for all of these religions, it was probably good enough for me. >> so when did you test your theory, you know? like you said, i'm a tither, you know, through my church, but when did you apply this and just to see if it would actually work? >> so i sat down with pen and paper, and i basically took my bank account and allocated 10% to the side and saut figured out how much time i could spend doing this. once i did that, i started actually finding projects to invest in. talking to people, talking to my network, finding things that were sort of relevant to hi skills and -- my skills and interest. and when i did that, over years -- and i've been doing this for five years, spent exactly that amount of time and money -- building a portfolio of now over 20 investments in reall estate, start-ups --
6:18 am
i've made manager like 20 times my money. on paper obviously it takes a while to sell these investments, but i've made well more than two times my money in cash. >> so, patrick, you unselfishly decided to share. [laughter] a lot of people would have kept this to themselves, be you talk about in this your book. >> it's my goal to help all the people that say, wow, there's a world of entrepreneurship, and i'm being left out. i work in i'm never going to leave this job, i just can't afford to do it, but i'm still a smart, committed person, and i have goals. and i have people in the book from a car dealer in long island to the founder of luke's lobber lobsters here in manhattan -- >> i've been there. >> it's my favorite. all of these people started their businesses on the side. some of them actually went and did it full time, but some still live in their corporate jobs --
6:19 am
entrepreneur. just share with us some of those. >> one of the ones that i want to put out there right away is you should always respect your day job. no matter what you're doing, it's your day job that allows you to do this on the side. you don't want to be sneaking around the shadows trying to do things while your boss is wondering where you've been all day. that's number one. number two is find things that play to your strength. find projects that really leverage what you're good at and what you care about doing, because this is the one part of your career tt you want to make sure it fits who you are. >> right. any other ones that you may want to pass along? one and two are certainly powerful. >> right. the other one i like to bring up is you don't need to be a millionaire to do this. you can start with very small amounts of money, and if you don't even have money, you can use your time, trade your time for ownership this new prompts. you want -- in new projects. you want to think like an owner and use your time to invest right alongside money. >> if someone were to say, okay,
6:20 am
how do i go and find these investment opportunities or these things to try to do? how do they narrow that down. >> >> right. so i take you through in this the book this great detail. this is a process of saying what am i good at, what do i like doing, and what are my resources? that takes a little homework. you can then tart talking to people. go out into the world, talk to people who have ideas, put it out there at a dipper party or your kid's soccer game and say here's what i'm i get started? it's a network game at the opened the day. >> -- at the end of the day. >> for years we've been hearing think outside the box. is that still true in 2016? does it still apply? >> it does. but what's different nowadays is technology has made thinking outside box so much cheaper and easier. what cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to do ten years ago is basically free now. so you can think outside the box but in a way that is cheap and% low in risk. >> the one thing that surprised
6:21 am
today along this different path, you know? the one thing that you were surprised to learn as you were going along in this process. >> i think the thing that surprised me the most that this is something that's accessible to anyone. i have stories of people in india, in argentina, in mexico and new york city, all over the world, people with small kids, people who may have worked in, you know, nontraditional careers. all kinds of backgrounds. what it comes down to is that the people who do this are people who believe that they careers, and they go out and do it. so it's a really accessible strategy, and that was something as i discovered it, it made me really excited. >> the book is called "the 10% entrepreneur." >> i'm at pj mcginnis, even on snapchat, pj mcginnis 10. >> thank you for the inspiration. a reminder that 10 percent can
6:22 am
through the power of work. how goodwill continus to make a difference for those with fios is not cable. we're wired differently. so we wired the wagner's house with 100 meg internet.
6:23 am
and jan can upload 120 photos. 12 seconds. that's the power of fiber optics. and right now you can get 100 meg internet with equal upload and dowloads speeds, tv and phone for just $69.99 per month online. cable can't offer internet speeds this fast at a price this good. only fios can. >> giving people a chance to reach their full potential, th's goodwill as they provide people with disabilities the chance to live a productive life. joining me now is katy gaul-stigge, ceo and president of goodwill of greater new york and new jersey. we're just meeting for the first time. >> it's good to meet you. >> you're new to the position, right? >> i am. i worked for thety of new york for the past 14 years, and i've just year come on as the president of goodwill. >> we love goodwill.
6:24 am
of helping the community, goodwill is certainly one of the first names to come to mind. >> well, i'm so happy to hear that. we've been around as a social enterprise for the last 100 years, actually founded right in brooklyn. you know, what we do is three things. really it's all about donate stuff, create jobs. and what that means is we make sure that those jobs are front and center for people who need opportunity, especially people with disabilities. but there's more than that. when you buy a jacket like at our 23rd street store, you're also removing things from the waste stream, you're helping the earth, and we're able to support our communities in everything from backpacks to job to-training programs -- job-training programs to, you know, after school programs. >> you know, when -- i tend to donate as up as i can -- >> wonderful. >> and salvation army, and there's so many organizations out there for people to help others and things like that.
6:25 am
with disabilities and making them, you know, helping them to acclimate and to just, you know, gain their independence, you know? that's really important for you all. >> absolutely. well, let me tell you a story. one of the ladies that works at our 14th street store, she has a disability, and 75% of people with disabilities are unemployed. so it's just way too high. goodwill really takes the opportunity to make sure that we're creating a tore where there's -- a store where there's she came to us, she was feeling down, we were able to give her a job. she started working at our store, she's been promoted, and she's able to be independent, support her family and have a lot of pride and excitement in the work that she does. and it's not just for her, it's for everyone else that works there and everyone in the goodwill and in her community all get an impact from that kind of work. >> that's so inspiring, you know, when you can walk in and see her or someone else. >> yeah. >> is it tough to not get
6:26 am
the stores and when you, you know -- >> oh, i yet emotional. i mean, i think that's important. i'm a social worker, really this is the core of connecting people with the independence and the power of work should be emotional and important. and while you're donating a shirt that's too shawl for you or an old bicycle, that's not really emotional. get that stuff out of your house, and it can give a new opportunity to someone else. >> some of the resources you have for people who may not be familiar with things here in new york/new jersey. we really -- we create jobs, when the earth, and we support the community. that means we're helping people with disabilities with health and wellness. not just jobs, but also keeping them healthy and well through our clubhouse programs and other programs like that. people have opportunity and access to work and training. and one thing that's near and dear to my heart is career pathways which is not just a job, but moving up. so we're figuring out and
6:27 am
can move up the career ladder. >> when you mentioned support the earth, elaborate on that a little bit. >> sure. well, we've got over 100 million pounds of textiles out of the waste stream when you're donating to goodwill. it really helps the department of sanitation get textile out of the waste stream and sporting the earth -- supporting the earth. your clothes get a second life and, you know, our landfills get a break. >> i have to tell you -- [laughter] some may think, you know, when you go to goodwill that are picked over. that is not the case. [laughter] >> good, i agree. >> i am telling you, that's not the case especially in the new york/new jersey area. >> i only wear goodwill now, and it is beautiful things like the red jacket. and i have found wonderful there's treasures to be found, and there's just great prices for everyone. >> so all right, anyone looking for a goodwill store, you know, what's your web site? >> sure.
6:28 am
nynj.org. you can see any of our 13 stores here in thy and 41 stores in the -- in new york and 41 stores in the region. >> and social media? >> goodwill on twitter, on facebook. i'm on twitter, and so toll us and see what we're found up to. >> keep doing what you're doing, and congratulations on the position. >> thank you. let me give you a goodwill pin. >> i can put it on now? >> wear it with pride. >> he's the man there. dave's my direct e he'll get upset if i hit that mic. all right, katy. we're going to put the information on our web site as well. >> great. thank you so much. >> to learn more about today's topics, go to fox5ny.com. for all of us here at fox 5, i'm antwan lewis. we'll see you next time for more "street talk," and as always, thanks for the company. ?
