Introduction: Excessive recreational screen time (i.e., screen use for entertainment) is a global public health issue associated with adverse mental and physical health outcomes. Considering the growing popularity of screen-based recreation in adolescents, there is a need to identify effective strategies for reducing screen time among adolescents. The aim of this paper is to report the rationale and study protocol for the 'Switch-off 4 Healthy Minds' (S4HM) study, an intervention designed to reduce recreational screen time among adolescents. Methods: The S4HM intervention will be evaluated using a cluster randomized controlled trial in eight secondary schools (. N=. 322 students) in New South Wales, Australia. The 6-month multi-component intervention will encourage adolescents to manage their recreational screen time using a range of evidence-based strategies. The intervention is grounded in Self-Determination Theory (SDT) and includes the following components: an interactive seminar for students, eHealth messaging, behavioral contract and parental newsletters. All outcomes will be assessed at baseline and at 6-months (i.e., immediate post-test). The primary outcome is recreational screen time measured by the Adolescent Sedentary Activity Questionnaire (ASAQ). Secondary outcomes include: self-reported psychological well-being, psychological distress, global physical self-concept, resilience, pathological video gaming and aggression, and objectively measured physical activity (accelerometry) and body mass index (BMI). Hypothesized mediators of behavior change will also be explored. Discussion: The S4HM study will involve the evaluation of an innovative, theory-driven, multi-component intervention that targets students and their parents and is designed to reduce recreational screen time in adolescents. The intervention has been designed for scalability and dissemination across Australian secondary schools.

Introduction: The negative consequences of unhealthy weight gain and the high likelihood of pediatric obesity tracking into adulthood highlight the importance of targeting youth who are 'at risk' of obesity. The aim of this paper is to report the rationale and study protocol for the 'Active Teen Leaders Avoiding Screen-time' (ATLAS) obesity prevention intervention for adolescent boys living in low-income communities. Methods/design: The ATLAS intervention will be evaluated using a cluster randomized controlled trial in 14 secondary schools in the state of New South Wales (NSW), Australia (2012 to 2014). ATLAS is an 8-month multi-component, school-based program informed by self-determination theory and social cognitive theory. The intervention consists of teacher professional development, enhanced school-sport sessions, researcher-led seminars, lunch-time physical activity mentoring sessions, pedometers for self-monitoring, provision of equipment to schools, parental newsletters, and a smartphone application and website. Assessments were conducted at baseline and will be completed again at 9- and 18-months from baseline. Primary outcomes are body mass index (BMI) and waist circumference. Secondary outcomes include BMI z-scores, body fat (bioelectrical impedance analysis), physical activity (accelerometers), muscular fitness (grip strength and push-ups), screen-time, sugar-sweetened beverage consumption, resistance training skill competency, daytime sleepiness, subjective well-being, physical self-perception, pathological video gaming, and aggression. Hypothesized mediators of behavior change will also be explored. Discussion: ATLAS is an innovative school-based intervention designed to improve the health behaviors and related outcomes of adolescent males in low-income communities. © 2013 Elsevier Inc.

The growth of "smart" mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets, has been exponential over the past few years. Such growth was mainly attributed to the development of mobile applications. To date, mobile applications have been increasingly used to improve our productivity and also to provide the entertainment contents. However, with a huge number of mobile applications that appear in the application stores; in particular those that provide similar functionalities, users are often confused with the selection of trustworthy and high quality mobile applications. At the current state, there is a limited research embarked to provide solutions for measuring the trustworthiness of mobile applications prior to download. Thus, the aims of this paper are to review the current research in this area and to discuss several issues in measuring the trustworthiness of mobile applications. In addition, this paper also proposes MobilTrust, a similarity trust measurement method to solve the identified issues. © 2013 ICST Institute for Computer Science, Social Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering.

Many of the current issues with Information Privacy have been the result of inadequate consideration for privacy during the planning, design and implementation of Information Systems and communication networks. The area of Quantum Computation is still in its infancy, and a truly functional quantum computer has not been implemented. However, it is anticipated that within the next decade it may be feasible. This presents a unique opportunity to give due consideration to Information Privacy in the realm of future quantum computational devices and environments while they are still in their infancy. This chapter provides an overview of the key Information Privacy issues that the authors feel may arise with the evolution and realization of quantum computation. Additionally they propose an integrated approach of technical, legal and social elements to address these issues. © 2009, IGI Global.

The uptake and utility of digital collaboration's continues to grow as organizations are realizing the diverse range of benefits they provide to not only their organization as a whole but also to individual employees. However, like many information and communication technologies the implementation push often overshadows a proper evaluation of data security and information privacy risks that may be inherent with the technology. This paper details our ongoing research for addressing a number of authentication and personal entity identification issues encountered in digital collaborative architectures. We propose an authentication framework that uniquely combines both traditional and biometric methods of authentication with an additional novel audiovisual method of authentication. Further, the CASE (Combined Authentication Scheme Encapsulation) methodology provides an intuitive privacy protecting visual representation of a member entity's authentication methods, which is accessible by other member entities for help in assessing the risk of sharing 'sensitive' data with other collaboration entities.

Pearlman et al defines a virtual community as a large, multi-institutional group of individuals who use a set of rules, a policy, to specify how to share their resources. With such a large collection of data stores in these resources, each of which could be data mined to different degrees, the privacy of each of the individuals needs to be protected. Within a virtual community, especially one also used to facilitate knowledge discovery, there are a number of privacy issues that must be addressed and resolved in ways other than through privacy laws and policies alone. This is due to the fact that, as to date, these laws have proved mainly ineffective and there is an ever growing concern by individuals about their privacy. Web surveys have identified that 82% of users have said improved privacy policies and methods would matter in web environments. Agarwal highlights the fact that a secure collaborative environment, such as a virtual community, needs to provide authentication, authorization, privacy and data integrity. In this paper, we identify the technology issues, followed by the presentation of our proposed solution. We provide a conceptual framework of the Hippocratic Security Method to provide information security for shield privacy in virtual communities and we describe the architecture and design of the proposed solution. We outline the implementation, testing and evaluation strategies of our solutions. The proposed solution shall monitor the use of personal information as it is passed around the virtual community and protected information paths, data at rest, database and information resources through the use of the hippocratic database principle to enforce hippocratic security policies and procedures together with privacy preserving data mining method for excellent information security in a virtual community environment. © 2004 IEEE.
