Latest Brainy News
I have the best readers in the world! I'm not saying that just to
flatter you, I mean it. You know I sent out my MBA online survey
last Friday and the responses were not very good initially.
Therefore, I sent out a follow-up email to request your help again.
Since then, many had responded to my online survey and some even
wrote to me to wish me luck on my studies. I'm really touched and
would like to take this opportunity to thank you again.
BTW, for those who participated in the survey, I hope you like the
"Helping Your Child Get Ready For School" eBook as a
token of appreciation from me. And for those
who would like to help, the online survey is still open till
March 12, 2004. Take care and have a great week!

This talking book comes with an interactive "magic pen" that
works like a hand-held computer mouse pointer. Children can opt
to turn the paper pages and listen to the story read with
different voices for each character. Or they can interrupt the
read-aloud session to play with the magic pen (permanently
attached with a wire). They can point the pen tip to any word on
a page and hear it pronounced, or touch a picture and hear a
sound effect (such as "Strike one!" for the baseball bat)

Autism Claims Attention at Schools
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Feb 18, 2004
Less than a generation ago, doctors considered autism to be relatively rare, striking fewer
than one in 1,000 children. But in the early-to-mid-1990s, physicians started seeing more
toddlers displaying signs of autism.
Too Much TV Bad for Babies
The Straits Times Feb 6, 2004
The Japanese Pediatric Association said Friday
infants who watched too much television may experience delays in
learning languages and may develop other problems such as avoiding
eye contact with others.
Diets Unhealthy for Kids
Children on low-carbohydrate diets essentially are starving themselves of critical nutrients,
which may take a serious health toll on their physical and intellectual development, says Bruce
Rengers, Ph.D., assistant professor of nutrition and dietetics at the Saint Louis University
Doisy School of Allied Health Professions.
