The frontal lobe of the brain (located behind the forehead) handles all thought and voluntary behavior such as walking, speech, and problem solving, and some aspects of emotion. Development in this area really takes off between six and 12 months, when your baby becomes more mobile and verbal. #earlychildhood #education #learningthroughplay Learn More: Brain development: Frontal lobe | BabyCenter https://www.babycenter.com/0_brain-development-frontal-lobe_6611.bc

    Take a Walk in the Woods. Doctor's Orders.
    "Forest bathing," or immersing yourself in nature, is being embraced by doctors and others as a way to combat stress and improve health. On a damp Saturday morning last August, I joined 10 others in the woods outside Ottawa, Canada, as part of a "forest bathing" session offered by a local wilderness resort.

It#39;s time to get back in the studio! Vadim K re-ups an exciting new round of DIY Recording - a program seeking to democratize the recording process by educating, equipping and empowering the DIY recording community. This new session is in two parts. From the Event Page : In this first of two sessions we will be recording a song. We will work together to: Set up our "studio" by learning about how to connect microphones to interfaces to computers, etc., Set up our microphones to best capture the sound we#39;re looking for Learn about how and when to use click tracks, DAW grids and other useful tools. Track multiple instrument and vocal parts Learn some best practices for managing your DAW session efficiently and not getting lost. In the second session (which will take place the following Saturday), we will edit, mix, and master the track we recorded to create a finished product! ATTENTION: We are still looking for musicians that want a song recorded as part of these sessions. You must have a song that has music and lyrics. Just an acoustic guitar and vocals is fine! The team will help add other instruments. If you or someone you know would like to have a song recorded and mixed for FREE, please reach out to Vadim . If all else fails, we can record a cover but it would be way more fun to do an original. Saturday 7/21/2018 at 2:00 PM Music Department Free Library of Philadelphia, First Floor 1901 Vine Street, Philadelphia, PA 19017 This is a FREE program! Accessibility: A wheelchair ramp is located at the Library's Wood Street entrance, and a public elevator is located next to the building's northeast courtyard . 07/21/18, 2:00 P.M. - Parkway Central Library

It could potentially be used to cure disease, enhance the human body, or even change DNA for future generations--which raises a lot of big questions.” http://bit.ly/2uwzzHD

    Should We Edit Our Evolution?

Happy Bastille Day from The Franklin Institute. Benjamin Franklin served as the United States Ambassador to France from 1776 until 1785. As ambassador to France, he was in charge of securing aid for the American Revolution from abroad and forming an alliance with the French, both of which were instrumental in the success of American independence efforts. Due to his wit, charm and reputation as a renowned intellectual, Franklin was beloved there and charmed the French with his uniquely American style, especially his iconic fur hat. http://bit.ly/1SkrJX6 IMAGE: The reception of Benjamin Franklin in France | 1888 | The Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.
