L’affettività ha un ruolo primario dello sviluppo del bambino ed è chiaramente una funzione adattiva (serve per la sopravvivenza). Il bambino ha bisogno di un lungo periodo di cure e di protezione e questa necessità può essere ricercata esclusivamente nelle relazioni che egli instaura con gli adulti più vicini (genitori, tutori, parenti).

Good writing about good writing
Most photos of Hemingway are of him middle-aged or old, with the white beard, or at the prime of his life with a huge Marlin fish or gun in his hand. But I like to think of him young, when all about who he was and who he became was forming — when he was hurt as all of us are — and what led to not only his fine writing, but his mistakes and regrets. I’m re-reading A Moveable Feast, arguably my favorite Hemingway book. Though his fiction was always autobiographical, this, of course, is nonfiction.
He says of his first wife Hadley when returning from a trist with his soon to be second wife, Pauline: ”When I saw my wife . . . at the station, I wished I had died before I ever loved anyone but her.”
And I suspect that was one of the things…

Japan is famous for wisteria gardens. Tennogawa Park is a fabulous example. One of the headings on the website talks of intoxicating people’s hearts. Looking at the photos it is easy to see why.
Have you ever visited these Japanese gardens? Or other places around the world where wisteria intoxicated your heart?
As we agonize over politics, finances or the thoughts in each person’s head, it’s necessary sometimes to remember just how irrelevant we are.
Humans have a gift, intentional or otherwise, for making life difficult for each other. I guess there’s some truth to the saying, “misery loves company.” What we get out of making life harder than it is? Who knows. Nothing of lasting value.
Mother Earth doesn’t care. Rich or poor, She can destroy anything we build or rebuild. Sometimes she gives displays of her power, just to remind us about her capabilities.

something to take into consideration
Diabetes is an ugly disease, affecting the physical health of those who have it. It may also affect the mental health of victims. Anecdotal evidence suggests that it may be the cause of some verbal and physical violence in the home.
What we know.
- 29.1 million Americans have diabetes, according to a 2014 study by the Centers for Disease Control.
- Of these, 8.1 million are undiagnosed.
- Another 86 million are pre-diabetic, meaning they are at risk for development of the disease.
- Diabetes results from a hormone imbalance (insulin) that results in excessive glucose (sugar) in the bloodstream.
- Diabetes places a person at risk for heart disease, kidney disease, blindness, risk of amputation, and death. It was the seventh leading cause of death in 2010 in the US.
- Diabetes may develop at birth or occur in adults. Risk factors include poor diet and obesity. (1)

learning transfer is awesome in nature too
School of brainpage theory is based on the neurological studies of book to brain knowledge transfer
Pathway learnography is important in the learning process of classroom to develop smart page in student’s memory centers for high performance. This is the motor science of space, object and time required in problem solving activities. There are three types of pages related to the learning transfer of school system and these pages are sourcepage, brainpage and zeidpage. Knowledge is written in the book and the page of learning book is known as the sourcepage of knowledge transfer. The teacher also reads source page to develop corresponding brainpage before he performs in the classroom. We also read some pages to create new ideas in brain circuits for the design of a particular mapping, pathways and structure.
It’s true that the most learning transfer of subject matter happens in the home learning of…
