Learn at least 7 languages!

Learn at least 7 languages!

Children are always mimicking what they hear, and are surprisingly good at it! They are uniquely attuned to slight differences in tone and sound. Their sensitive ears help them pick up on and duplicate the tricky sounds adults and even adolescents often stumble over. For adults just beginning a new language, this difficulty can be discouraging...

A study conducted by researchers from UCLA and the University of Hong Kong, however, shows that even adults with significant exposure to a language in childhood can end up speaking like a native. By starting early, your children can quickly learn to speak smoothly and confidently.

Achieve Perfect Maths Balance With Equator from 23rd August

EDINBURGH, Scotland, 13th August - Independent game developer TigerFace Games will
release collaborative multiplayer title Equator on iPad and Android tablets on the 23rd of
August.

Equator is set on a tiny planet inhabited by two farmers. In order to reap a successful harvest
throughout the year, each farmer has to work together to balance the soil and promote healthy
growth. This manifests itself as a sum-balancing maths game for two, played on a single tablet
device, in which players use pre-determined handouts of numbers and mathematical operators
to create a calculation with the same answer as that of the other player.

Set across four seasons, Equator includes all levels of mental arithmetic skills from addition


What's Next? You Ain't Seen Nuthin' Yet... [on the evolution of Apple]

image

 

 
With all the chatter in the blogosphere, about new products soon to be released, and patent battles being fought on all fronts in the courts of law, I think it's important to keep in mind the old expression: "You ain't seen nuthin' yet!" Truly, hasn't this week been a great example of that.
 
With the court cases bringing out details Apple would just as likely have preferred to keep private, we have been granted a rare insight into the evolution of products in the Apple iDevice chain, as well as having been given glimpses into what Apple had in mind, in prototype form, two years ago.
 
That said, can you imagine what Cupertino has in store for us in say, 5 years? That's not that long. Think about it. Within 5 years, devices and functions that are now, only in prototype/patent form, may very well be seeing the light of day. It's not for nothing that Johny Ive says that the products Apple is working on now, are some of the best, most exciting products Apple has ever invented!
