Brainology is an online interactive program in which middle school students learn about how the brain works, how to strengthen their own brains, and how to better approach their own learning. In the process they develop a growth mindset whereby they think of their intelligence as something they can develop through study and learning rather than as something fixed, as explained by our co-founder Dr. Carol Dweck.

This website is based on the ideas of Fixed and Growth Mindsets as set out in Professor Carol Dweck's book 'Mindset'. Dweck's studies on motivation have presented some interesting ideas that can deeply affect the way we teach children. I have been working on developing the powerful theory into ...

Introducing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic

Our happiest Google+ users are those who connect with others around shared interests and passions. So we set out to give people a place to express the things they love. Today, we’re announcing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic.

Every collection is a focused set of posts on a particular topic, providing an easy way for you to organize all the things you’re into. Each collection can be shared publicly, privately, or with a custom set of people. Once you create your first collection, your profile will display a new tab where other people can find and follow your collections.

Posts in collections you follow will appear in your Home stream, with a link to easily jump right into the collection so you can get to similar content from that author. Collections give you a great way to find more of the stuff you love from the people you follow.

Collections is available on Android and the web, and iOS is coming later. For Android users, make sure to update your Google+ app to get access to Collections.

For inspiration on interesting topics, check out our Featured Collections page here: g.co/collections

Create your collections today and share what you love.

Went here for Breakfast. Loved it. Amazingly good coffee and a wonderful veggie breakfast. My Mum had the salmon and scrambled eggs on toast which she reported was great. Staff were brill, reasonably priced. A definite fine for Brekkie in Edinburgh.

Great venue which attracts a great selection of musicians and artists. There is usually a choice of church pews or cabaret seating for music events which makes for a great atmosphere. The venue is not massive so you're not watching some blobs in the distance. The sound quality whenever I've been has always been great. They also stock Williams' beers. What's not to like?

Had an appointment booked for Mark to come and quote for an extension, a piece of work in the region of £20 - £30K. Mark didn't show up, didn't phone, text nor send an e-mail. When phoned the person who answered (on the mobile number from the website) said 'I'm supposed to be with you now aren't I?' and then put the phone down. You may decide this is not the sort of customer service you would like from a building firm, who are coming to do work in your house. #cityexperts #edinburghcityexperts #edincityexperts

Our 2nd time staying at the hotel and a brilliant place to stay whilst on Colonsay. It's the only hotel on the Island which for some hotels would allow an amount of '#slack' to happen. Not here. The staff are all amazingly friendly and go out of there way to help, the rooms are clean and well stocked with teas and coffees, sparkling waters and biscuits! The public rooms are lovely. Lots of games to play, books to read, spaces to hang out. Great art work on the walls, a mix of modern artists and pictures of Colonsay's history. The bar has a good range of drinks, including all 3 brews from the Colonsay brewery and a fine range of Islay whiskies. The food is wonderful, and was amazing the very first time we visited too. Weirdly it is the food which loses the star (from the 5* review it would have been on our 1st visit). The menu is based around local seafood with some meat dishes too, however, I'm a pescotarian which left the menu a bit limited, There was a lack of change in the menu over the 5 nights we stayed, meaning repeating some dishes. That might sound a bit picky (you decide) because the food was tasty, well cooked and filling, and reasonably priced. Puddings were lovely as were the starters. Would we go back again, of course we would. Just maybe change the menu up during the week!

Wonderful meal last nigth at IGLU. We were the first people in the restaurant last night, but the waitress/cooks made us feel very welcome without feeling at all awkward (which can be a challenge when there's only two people in!) We had G & T and a Penuuin Stout whilst we looked at the menu, both good starts to our evening. They have a fine range of beers- Innis and Gunn, Williams and Black Isle Brewery as well as many gins. Lynda went for spiced califlower soup with Breadshare sourdough bread,and I went for bread with sun-dried dipping sauce. Both were lovely, but in that way that happens, I wish I'd chosen the soup, as the toasted cumin seeds in the soup tasted fab. For our mains we had the Chicken stew pie and cullen skink pie. Both pies were 'mash' pies in the style of shepherds pie. Both were lovely, the cullen skink was particularly tasty, the smoked haddock infused the creamy filling to make a lovely sauce. We usually don't have puddings. We did here. The sticky date pudding with toffee sauce looked like a real treat and not to be missed. It was, and we didn't. The date pudding was so light and moist that it could easily have been served without the amazing toffee sauce...but we're glad it wasn't. To finish we had a latte (decaff) and a wonderfully smoky Lagavulin whisky. Iglu prides itself on local produce. I'll be honest, I'm not fussed about air miles, local producers etc unless the food is great. It was. The menu is almost all gluten free too. I wouldn't have known and it did change my preconcieved ideas that gluten free means 'tastes like cardboard'. A fabulous night out.

Visited for our wedding anniversary. Lovely building and very smart inside in an informal way. Good range of beers and wines available. We ordered the fish and chips (Yum). Crispy batter on the fish (Scran and Scallie take note) and lovely crispy chips too. Mushy peas were great. Very flavoursome. My wife had the ox shin with turnip and ginger mash. The mash was lovely and my wife reported that the ox shin was very tasty. It looked lovely in a thick rich gravy. Idea for a cooler autumnal evening. Puddings - Vanilla and Mascarpone rice pud for me , once again, delicious. Great flavour. My wife had the cake with ice cream. Again, she said this was lovely. Great staff and very reasonably priced. A good fine.

Amazing second hand bookshop and now vinyl shop too. Why is it amazing..? It's huge so it has a huge stock, It has specialist first editions, It has knowledgeable staff, It has an amazing old school coffee shop (including fruit cake and cheese!!), It's previous use as a station means it's quirky and has bits of railway memorabilia all over, It's the original home of 'Keep Calm and Carry On' posters. They found one here and began selling them. You can sell your own books here and have a credit account, Their collection is referenced and computerised and you can search in store. In the area, you really have to go.
