NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) –Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is on the rise and now a new study suggests that might be due to excessive smartphone use. “I’d say half the day, probably, I’m on my phone,” one teen said. It’s no surprise many teens admit to spending too much time on their phones. “Usually when I’m in class I’m always on my phone,” another teen said. A new study suggests that the more teens check social media, stream video, text or simply use their phones–the more likely they are to develop symptoms of ADHD. “In a sample of more than 2,500 Los Angeles area teenagers, and we found indeed, yeah there was a statistically significant link,” said University of Southern California study author Dr. Adam Leventhal. ADHD symptoms include inattention, hyperactivity and restlessness that is more frequent than normal. At its start, the 10th graders in the study had none of those symptoms. For two years the teens kept track of their digital use and those ADHD behaviors. The results, just published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, found a “statistically significant but modest association” between the two. 45 percent of the study adolescents admitted to being online, “almost constantly.” The researchers say it’s the “always-on” nature of mobile devices and their frequent notifications, constantly drawing teens’ attention that may be behind the increase in ADHD symptoms. Dr. Leventhal says parents can ease the problem by setting an example. “Don’t use digital media so much in front of them. A lot of us do it and we don’t realize that maybe at the dinner table or other situations–we’re on our device!” said Leventhal. Total screen time, TV and video games for example, did not correlate with increased ADHD because they don’t draw and demand attention the way phones do. Still this is an association not a cause and effect and the increase was just 10 percent.
Following a news conference where President Trump and President Putin each took questions, CBS News chief White House correspondent Major Garrett said the summit between the two leaders accomplished nothing meaningful about any hot-button foreign policy issue for either country. Garrett also said Trump’s answers about Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election, “in no way line up with one another.” “Face the Nation” moderator Margaret Brennan added that Trump’s comments were a “punch in the gut” to U.S. intel services.

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — At a time when so much of our lives is documented online, where do you draw the line when it comes to posting about other people? CBS2’s Jessica Moore looked into internet etiquette in public places. From live tweeting about other people’s bad dates to calling out alleged cheaters, the latest way to become “internet famous” seems to require only keen ears and fast thumbs. “Sorry, I don’t have any privacy. You don’t have any privacy,” said Lamonte Fountain. Earlier this month, millions of people followed along with what appeared to be a serendipitous love connection between two strangers on a flight . Rosey Blair’s live Twitter feed garnered hundreds of thousands of retweets and nearly one million likes. Amid backlash, she deleted the post and issued an apology. But the woman at the center of #PlaneBae wasn’t having it, issuing a statement saying, “#PlaneBae is not a romance – it is a digital-age cautionary tale about privacy, identity, ethics and consent.” Some New Yorkers think private conversations should stay private, no matter where you have them. “You shouldn’t be in someone else’s business, assuming things that aren’t right,” Edith Oleaga said. “I don’t think you should be putting your input in people’s lives, because that’s how things start,” said Latifah Carter. Others think you can’t always expect that what you say in a public place stays private. “Integrity still has to come into play and character,” Michelle Black said. “And that’s what it comes down to: Do you have integrity and character and do you need to share other people’s business? No.” Experts say these days, the “elevator rule” applies pretty much everywhere. Meaning, assume that anything you say in a public place is being overheard by someone nearby. “It’s public domain,” said Matthew Dimakos. “I really think if you want to remain private, don’t talk in public around people that may be recording you. I think you’re responsible for that.” “We have freedom of speech and then we have the right to privacy. Who draws the line between the two? I don’t know,” Fountaine said. Public domain or privacy invasion? Unless you’re in your own home, silence seems to be the only way to ensure you don’t end up as click bate.
