The role for vitamin D in hippocampal and dopamine system development suggests effects on learning and memory and motor and/or reward systems may be possible. But longitudinal studies in humans are needed to fully address this question. These take time, so it may be years before we get the complete picture. Even with such studies, given the breadth and complexity of its roles in the brain, the sub-clinical effects of vitamin D deficiency may be subtle, diffuse, and difficult to detect. This is particularly the case in the more moderate form of deficiency common in the US and other developed countries.
Vitamin D has a far greater contribution to brain development than most people know about. If you’re expecting or you already have a baby, make sure that he or she doesn’t lack Vitamin D. (more…)

According to the official blog, plans for a film adaptation of the original ?Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion? TV anime series are underway.
At a recent press conference, producers Yukawa Atsushi and Yoshitaka Kawaguchi described the idea as a dream right before a display that read, “project has been launched,” was shown.
Code Geass has been a hit ever since it was released. I’m pretty sure that this film is going to be equally huge and will be lapped up by the hordes of Code Geass fans.
I’ve always been aware that part of my purpose in creating art is to explore the control of chaos. Sometimes I think it’s a microcosm of my life. I hate not having control, and I hate being surprised. I like to make changes in my life, not be subjected to the shock of them.
Making art, just like any kind of creative process, can be very complex. Shaylamaddox describes her own creative process in her wonderfully written blog post.
Apple store in Beijing, China, stopped the sale of the new iPhone 4s due to scalpers. This action prompted an irate customer to throw eggs at the glass windows, and leaving others disappointed after waiting for a number of hours.
I understand that Apple’s iPhone is the most popular smartphone on the planet, able to inspire acts of utter stupidity. Just take this incident for example. What I want to know though is how this irate customer got hold of eggs. Did he bring the eggs with him adhering to the scout motto of always being prepared – anticipating the need for something icky to throw at stores? Or is he an egg vendor who happened who just happened to be bringing his stock of eggs while lining up for an iPhone 4s?

Because of its specific format, Quora provided an opportunity unlike Twitter, Facebook, or other social media outlets for fans to engage with Super 8.
I must admit I have never tried out Quora. So far plain old Google and Wikipedia does the job for me. It might be time though to get an account and check it out if I want to keep up with trends.
A good example of throwing in a personal post now and then.
The boomerang is the perfect symbol for what happens when you become an enthusiastic reader. You read that book and your first reaction is almost always to tell someone else about it. And before you know it, they’re telling you about the book they just read that you’ll like too. That’s about the path of a boomerang, isn’t it?
Since I could read and all the way through highschool I went regularly to the library, to lend books and to study. I must say I miss it, the public library here is very sterile and uninviting. Good libraries are a dying species.
The unexpected bonus is that the melted cheese forms a laminating layer over the brittle corn shell, increasing its shatter resistance by an order of magnitude. The result: a hard taco that not only holds onto its ingredients, but also is easier to eat because it doesn’t explode in your hand.
I am amazed at Dave’s dedication to get the best way to stack a taco. Never mind my addiction to MSG in the flavor. I get so frustrated with the shells breaking that I just use a soft tortilla which doesn’t taste the same. Dave’s post is a fine example on why I love weblogs, not even in a food magazine you’ll come across such a handy and detailed tip.
