Include any other comments or information you want the Commission to consider in evaluating your compliance with the Children's Television Act (or use this space for supplemental explanations). This may include information on any other noncore educational and informational programming that you aired this quarter or plan to air during the next quarter, or any existing or proposed non-broadcast efforts that will enhance the educational and informational value of such programming to children. See 47 C.F.R. Section 73.671, NOTES 2 and 3. WNYT-TV/WNYA-TV Children's Report Third Quarter- July 2014 Vaccines are Safe- WNYT- July 1, 2014- 12:00 pm A large review of vaccine data backs previous study findings that the shots are safe for children. Researchers looked at studies conducted after the last large vaccine review in 2011 and including data that was excluded from that report. They found the measles, mumps, rubella or MMR vaccine, is not linked to autism. The study also finds strong evidence this vaccine and the tetanus and hepatitis B vaccine, are not associated with childhood leukemia. Cyberbullying Law- WNYT- July 1, 2014- 12:00 pm- 5:00 pm- WNYA- 10:00 pm New York's highest court struck down Albany County's cyberbullying law. The ruling involves the case of a Cohoes High School student who anonymously posted pictures of fellow students on Facebook. The teen was charged with violating a 2010 county law prohibiting cyberbullying. The court says while the teenager's actions were "repulsive," the county law is overly broad since the first amendment protects even "embarrassing" or "annoying" speech. Revised Vaccine Schedule- WNYT- July 1, 2014- 5:00 pm- July 2, 2014- 5:00 am- 12:00 pm School aged children have new immunization requirements taking effect today. The revised regulations do not add any new vaccines. They update the number of doses required and the minimum time between those doses. They apply to daycare, head start, nursery, pre-k and grades K through 12. The state health department has a list of common questions and answers, as well as a vaccine schedule posted on its website. We've linked it for you on our website WNYT dot com. Graco Car Seat Recall- WNYT- July 1, 2014- 5:00 pm- July 2, 2014- 5:00 am Graco is recalling nearly two million infant car seats in what is now the largest car seat recall in United States history. Buckles on the seats can get gummed up by food and drinks, making it hard to get the children out. The company recalled millions of toddler seats earlier this year for the same problem. If you have an affected model, you can get a replacement buckle. A list of the models can be found on WNYT dot com.
