Zombie family values: The Walking Dead TV program analyzed
Researchers studying the first three seasons of the AMC hit show The Walking Dead found the show and its characters push family as the best hope for the end times, rather than government, science or religion, and this redefinition of the zombie genre can help explain how the show has amassed its 14-million-per-episode fan base.

It's science!

¿Cuántos años tiene el bebé? Hace un tiempo, una chica que visita el mismo salón de belleza que yo, me contó que su niña aprendió a leer sola con apenas dos años. Lo hizo con el iPad y una aplicación de TodoBebes llamada "Leer y Escribir". Me gustaría que alguien más lo intentara, pero yo no tengo con quien. ;-) Me parece fascinante que niños pequeños, con la herramienta adecuada, sean capaces de lograr aprender cosas para las que hace más de 30 años era necesario un maestro, y pasar por maternal, prekinder, kínder y preprimario.
