Iceland knows how to stop teen substance abuse but the rest of the world isn’t listening (2017, mosaicscience)

In Iceland, teenage smoking, drinking and drug use have been radically cut in the past 20 years. Emma Young finds out how they did it, and why other countries won’t follow suit.

Peter and the Wolf

Peter and the Wolf is probably familiar to many of us. It's a children's story spoken by a narrator accompanied by the orchestra - both music and text are by Sergei Prokofiev. He was commissioned by the Moscow Musical Theatre for Children to write a new musical symphony for children, in 1936. The intent was to cultivate "musical tastes in children from the first years of school". Intrigued by the invitation, Prokofiev completed Peter and the Wolf in just four days.

Lovely non-animated versions are e.g. ☞

(Russian) Being more popular, however, please find attached an animated version of the work, produced by Walt Disney in 1946, this time with David Bowie as narrator - enjoy!

The local elementary school, named after Emanuel Lasker, is the only public school in Germany which teaches chess as part of the curriculum, and it had done so since 1823; just as the Ströbeck secondary school, which was closed in 2004, due to too few pupils.

The Dutch feast of Saint Nicholas is about giving, for "it is in giving that we receive." The fun is in trying to surprise people, to tease in a well-meaning way, to make a good joke, to produce a rollicking rhyme. The gift itself is just a bonus, as the fun is in the doing.

“The idea that rising blood pressure is a result of aging is a widely held belief in cardiology, but our findings add to evidence that rising blood pressure may be an avoidable consequence of Western diet and lifestyle rather than aging itself,”

Study of Two Tribes Sheds Light on Role of Western-Influenced Diet in Blood Pressure

Image/photoYanomami woman and her child at Homoxi, Brasil

Tribe with no Western dietary influences had no increase in blood pressure with advancing age, while neighboring tribe with modest exposure to Western diet, including processed foods, did have an increase

“This age-related rise in blood pressure begins in early childhood—which suggests that early childhood may be a ‘window of opportunity’ for lifestyle interventions to prevent later rises in blood pressure,” Mueller says.

To put these findings in context, in the U.S. systolic blood pressure rises by about 1.5 mm Hg and 1.9 mm Hg per year among boys and girls, respectively, and 0.6 mm Hg per year among adults.

Aprender música enseña a leer
Música, lenguaje, distintos armónicos, un solo acorde...

La formación musical en los primeros años de escolarización influye positivamente en la capacidad lectora del alumno.

Aprender música enseña a leer


La neurociencia ha encontrado una clara relación entre la música y la adquisición del lenguaje. Sin rodeos: aprender música en los primeros años de la escolarización puede ayudar a que los niños aprendan a leer.

Ambas actividades comparten una red superpuesta en el cerebro. Desde una perspectiva evolutiva, el cerebro humano desarrolló la adquisición de la música mucho antes que la del lenguaje y luego usó esa habilidad para crear y aprender el lenguaje.

Al nacer, los bebés entienden el lenguaje como si fuera música. Responden al ritmo y a la melodía del lenguaje antes de comprender qué significan las palabras.
