Some call it the “beautiful game”. There must be something special about it because it is a global phenomenon! The latest survey says that over 265 million people, around 4% of the world’s population play this beautiful game, and during the last world cup finals in South Africa, nearly half of the worlds population watched at least 5minutes of a game. In Mongolia, when the majority of significant games are broadcast in the middle of the night, people are up watching the games on TV!

Buckets and spades will soon be a thing of the past at children’s holiday clubs, according to ‘futurologist’ Ian Peason. Instead, the prediction maker says, robots, avatars and 3D glasses will replace traditional playthings.

The survey of 1,000 children and parents discovered that adults value relationship over entertainment, with one in four parents saying the best thing about children’s holiday clubs was seeing their children make friends. However, nearly 70% of the children who took part in the survey would like to use technology on holiday. All is not lost for traditionalist parents though – 28% of the children surveyed said that the best thing about children’s holiday clubs was learning new things and playing new games.

Both films are based on books by author Dan Brown. An editorial in the paper called both the film and the book “modest” and “rather innocuous”.
