Brain Training Combined with Daily Intermittent Fasting Improves Cognition, Say Calorie Restriction Proponents at LivingTheCRWay.com

OSSINING, N.Y., March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – Known for giving very sharp, lucid interviews, the late Walter Breuning at 114 was the oldest man in the world. He followed a Daily Intermittent Fasting plan, eating a large breakfast, smaller lunch and then fasting until the next morning. His eating plan resonates with Brain Booster members of LivingTheCRWay.com, who find that some time away from food improves brain function. Brain Boosters focus on improving memory, processing speed, accuracy, and thought synchronization – while reducing risk of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and Huntington’s diseases and dementia.

“When scientists or doctors make discoveries that can affect people’s lives positively, LivingTheCRWay invites them to host live teleconferences that are friendly conversations with the members. Participants have time to ask questions that matter to them,” says Paul McGlothin, President of LivingTheCRWay.com. He continues, “A short fast to improve brain health was inspired by the work of Dr. Mark Mattson, Chief Neurobiologist of the National Institute on Aging.” Listen as Dr. Mattson discusses the research that helped LivingTheCRWay create its Brain Booster plan: Calorie Restriction for a Better Brain (http://rs1475.freeconferencecall.com/fcc/cgi-bin/play.mp3/4242038075-965256-17.mp3).

The Brain Booster program includes:

5 ways to rejuvenate and promote old content | Search Engine People | Toronto | Metaglossia: The Translation World | Scoop.it

As a runner, I can tell you that when you are first starting out as a beginner, things are difficult. Arms flail. Legs tend to wobble. Everything feels off balance. If you do it long enough though, your body starts to figure out ways to economize the motion. You run with deliberation, economizing every step and movement so that you can last longer.

Creating content is a lot like running. When you first start out, you think that each article should have a "home"; one place where someone can see it. As you begin to economize your motions, you start to realize that in order to work more deliberately, you can get much, much more mileage out of your work and as a result, have more chances to demonstrate the value of your brand.

In this article, I am going to give you 5 ways to take what you already have and make the most of it.

Using Play Centers to Advance Writing Skills - WauwatosaNow

Using Play Centers to Advance Writing Skills - WauwatosaNow | Metaglossia: The Translation World | Scoop.it

Students in Junior Kindergarten at Underwood Elementary are learning to write and develop sound/letter associations through the use of authentic play situations. A $1,213 Education Foundation of Wauwatosa (EFW) grant allowed Linda Forbord and Betsy Heun to purchase kid safe clip boards, write and wipe markers, post office box, career costume set, pet veterinarian center, alphabet and number blocks, doctor’s office kit, builder’s tool kit, writing center and lapboard supply kit to enhance how they teach their students to write.

Students are not only writing during writer’s workshop but throughout their school day. Students are writing letters in the post office, using block letters to write words in the block center and writing shopping lists in the house center. Student’s see themselves as writers. They have increased their knowledge of letters and their sounds as evidenced in the Junior Kindergarten Treasures alphabet assessment. As of January, twenty-two out of thirty-six students are already able to identify 18 or more uppercase letters. The goal is to identify all twenty-six uppercase letters by the end of the school year.

As interpreters it can often to be easy to take our vision for granted. Daily, let's take time before working to understand, appreciate and show thanks for the ability to see clearly. Let's help our communities and share our knowledge.
