*Changes in Reading Skill Implements Both Sides of the Brain"

As both a Science Geek and a Reading Specialist, I think this is such an amazing discovery! I am eager to apply this research in my tutoring practice.

Reading is a Team Lift As Different Brain Parts Work Together to Predict Proficiency

This developmental shift integrates previously segregated parts of the brain, suggesting that changes in reading skill are associated with the nature and degree of these changes to the neural pathways within the reading network.

The research is in Frontiers in Psychology. (full open access)

When I go out in Amsterdam, it's tough to select just one place. So I don't! Here are 3 of my faves in this Dutch gem.

* La Mian - Duck steam bun with crisp veggies + vegetarian jiuza dumplings
* Pho 91 - Yum! I mean, duh. It's pho. {heh heh}. We also loved the Laksa. It is sinfully delicious.
* Toko Bar - Tasty brews on draught, so I tasted a Trippel. Always welcome!

Strangely, despite my love of Mexico, I've never heard of Mayapan, Yucatán. Enjoy this informative, interesting article from +Lyn Lindfield of The Traveling Lindfields.

#Mexico #Mayapan #Yucatan #Mayan #worldtravel

Let me tell you a story about power, human sacrifice and destruction. In the mid 15th Century In the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico there was a prince, from a small village called Techaquillo. According to the story the prince was captured and thrown into a 'cenote' (a natural well or sinkhole) at Chichen Itza as a human sacrifice. He survived, sadly the story doesn't say how, and declared war on Chichen Itza. Chichen Itza was defeated, its power destroyed and the city abandoned.
The prince and his descendants dominated the northern Yucatan until the mid-15th Century with the last great Mayan city, Mayapan, as their capital, until almost the entire family were slaughtered in an uprising and Mayapan was in turn destroyed and abandoned.
What struck us most about Mayapan was its resemblance to Chichen Itza - but without the crowds of tourists. If you liked Chichen Itza you will love Mayapan. Read about it in this week's blog post at buff.ly/2H7lfeh

Oh Man, +Chef Dennis Littley does it again! I was bookmarking his recipe for Blackened Salmon with Gorgozola Cream Sauce and serendipitously stumbled onto this beauty. Stuffed Salmon with Crabmeat. I'm drooling...

Do you love Salmon half as much as I do?
