Is this why time speeds up as we age?

Recent memories run in our brains like sped-up old movies. In childhood, we capture images in our memory much more quickly. The complexities of grownup neural pathways are no match for the direct routes of young brains. None Mechanical engineer Adrian Bejan of Duke University has an interesting theory regarding the strange phenomenon by which time seems to speed up as we age. It's not the only theory, mind you, but an interesting one. In his just-published paper, "Why the Days Seem Shorter as...

Why is 18 the age of adulthood if the brain can take 30 years to mature?

Research suggests that most human brains take about 25 years to develop, though these rates can vary among men and women, and among individuals.Although the human brain matures in size during adolescence, important developments within the prefrontal cortex and other regions still take pace well into one's 20s.The findings raise complex ethical questions about the way our criminal justice systems punishes criminals in their late teens and early 20s.

"Even just showing a smidgen of frustration or irritation was considered weak and childlike...."

"For instance, one time someone knocked a boiling pot of tea across the igloo, damaging the ice floor. No one changed their expression. 'Too bad,' the offender said calmly and went to refill the teapot. In another instance, a fishing line — which had taken days to braid — immediately broke on the first use. No one flinched in anger. 'Sew it together,' someone said quietly.... Traditional Inuit parenting is incredibly nurturing and tender.... The culture views scolding — or even speaking to child...

The TIMIO is a child-friendly tech-toy that introduces learning without the tech addiction

I heard something extremely interesting the other day. Children in homes with smart speakers had gotten so used to talking to the AI that they would often begin projecting human-like behavior on these voice assistants. Saying please, saying thank you, etc. While at first, I thought about how lovely that sounded, my second reaction was quite the opposite. These are artificial lines of code! They aren’t humans! They shouldn’t be humanized, and more so, children shouldn’t have to live in a world ...

"You probably want to know how much weight you’re going to lose when we remove the cyst; women always want to know."

Said the surgeon to Pagan Kennedy, who had "an ovarian cyst the size of a grapefruit that, doctors warned me, could at any time rupture and fill my abdomen with blood and pus." He also said — about the value of a complete hysterectomy — "You don’t have to get the procedure right away... You could wait. That would give you time to complete your family." She didn't like that either. The doctor quotes appear in "Why You Want to Eat This Baby Up: It’s Science/Researchers are beginning to ask why som...

What fulfills our hearts — and makes Jesus Happy

When I look at a Bible a little rough around the edges, I see a life spent with Jesus. Each tear stain, I wonder if it was from desperation or new found hope. Every underline or highlight, is someone putting their trust in the promises of the Word. It’s an expectation of delivery, and not of the UPS kind. It’s guaranteed delivery no matter the storm. It’s a grace to welcome Stephanie Alton as she writes about The Beginner’s Bible on the farm’s front porch today… guest post by Stephanie Alton ...

I am at that age where children start magically appearing in my friends’ and families’ lives.
