How Does a Diet Pill Actually Help Your Weight Loss?

This is possibly one of the most commonly asked questions among everyone out there who is struggling to lose their excess weight, and the answer to it largely depends on your individual context – that is to say, the factors that have you gaining weight, those that make you opt for diet pills or similar supplements, and the specific mechanism by which your chosen weight loss pill operates.

Introduction to AI and Humanoid Robotics at Smarter Robotics

An interest in Robotics is something our eldest and youngest sons have in common. Pablo, our 13-year old, has already attended a Robotics class at The Study by Enderun, but our 8-year old Judah has yet to join a class. My children were invited to attend a trial class by Alex Ferrer of Smarter Robotics last January 19.

5 Reasons why you should enroll your child at ALOHA Mental Arithmetic

Lukas has been progressing slowly but beautifully in ALOHA Mental Math. It’s been quite challenging to juggle our schedules lately, so we weren’t able to consistently bring him to his classes for the past three weeks. But when he does go, I can’t help but appreciate the process by which his Math skills are being developed. At his last session two weeks ago, he was introduced to the ”small friends, big friends” technique in calculating larger numbers, which was pretty cool. It’s like sight words in Math. For example, the friend of 4 is 1, and the friend of 2 […]
