Growth is big work and can bring wild emotions and chaotic behaviors and challenging interactions. It's not a smooth ride for the little ones who need to do all the growing, nor for the bigger people (who are still growing too!) caring for them.
I surely have no expertise in this field but I remain convinced that any such replication, however precise and infinitely complex, would remain as "dumb" as a more sophisticated version of Siri on my iPhone. More is more, but more is not consciousness.

We've all had "those days" at work where nearly everything seems to go awry. From that traffic jam delaying your first meeting to opening an inbox full of bad news, our patience and well-being are tested more often than we'd like.
If you do take a serious fall while cheerleading and suspect you may have a concussion (or any other injury) insist upon seeking medical attention immediately. Don't keep cheering, and don't allow an adult or teammates to tell you to shake it off.

"Why?" That's the question parents and teachers both dread and love to hear from kids. We dread it because, well, sometimes we don't know the answer -- or we're too lazy or harried to come up with a good one. But we usually do our best, understanding that curiosity is key to learning.

The many benefits of yoga, a 5,000-year-old discipline, are finally getting support from modern science.

Not to worry. Certain "brain foods" can help nourish this precious organ by protecting it from degeneration, helping to boost mood, and sustaining cognitive function, even as we age. Here are some of the top brain foods and what research says about them.
Word aversion has drawn impressive pop-cultural coverage in the last five-or-so years. But despite all the talk of these fairly neutral words that we find so revolting, very little is known about why we can't stand them.
