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.

    Humans still aren't allowed to live in the exclusion zone of Chernobyl, where a nuclear reactor exploded in 1986. Although the radioactivity is dangerous for humans and animals alike, the lack of humans has given some animals an opportunity to thrive.

“CRISPR is emerging as a convenient tool that scientists can use to edit the DNA of almost any living thing, including humans. 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?
    Maybe you watched the movie Rampage and had nightmares about animals turning into gene-edited monsters . Maybe you saw John Oliver's recent (hilarious and pretty accurate, albeit NSFW due to adult language) take on the hype vs. reality of CRISPR gene editing.

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.
