A new study from the University of Michigan released a study published in the journal Pediatrics suggesting a planning gap between your children.

The study of obesity risks of approximately 700 kids in the US has yielded the following results.  Children who are four years old at the most when the next siblings are born have a lower risk of obesity.  The incidents were most prominent in children between the age of 3 and 4, with only 5 percent of the population becoming obese when they reach first grade.  In children born after their older sibling passes first grade 13 percent of younger siblings began first grade obese. 

Childhood obesity remains a global threat while one in six kids is diagnosed with obesity.

The final meeting between two generational giants in the game of professional basketball was a good one.  Kobe Bryant and LeBron James presented an impressive offensive show with Bryant scoring 26 and James leaving with 24 and the win as the Cavs defeat the Lakers 120-108. 

Thursday night’s game was vintage Kobe, reminiscent of a 30-year-old Kobe.  Drop steps, fall aways and three pointers provided offensive elements of a nice farewell game against the strongest player in the game today, a storybook ending in a fairytale career. 

After the game Bryant said, "It was just fun." 

For the past nine seasons either Bryant or James have played in the NBA finals, but interestingly, not at the same time. 

D’angelo Russell, the up and coming superstar rookie chipped in 24 as the agile Kyrie Irving knocked down 26 in the winning effort.
