Early Language Learning and Literacy: Neuroscience
Implications for Education
Patricia K. Kuhl
Institute for Learning & Brain Sciences
The last decade has produced an explosion in neuroscience research examining young children’s early processing of language that has implications for education. Noninvasive, safe functional brain measurements have now been proven feasible for use with children starting at birth. In the arena of language, the neural signatures of learning can be documented at a remarkably early point in development, and these early measures predict performance in children’s language and prereading abilities in the second, third, and fifth year of life, a finding with theoretical and educational import. There is evidence that children’s early mastery of language requires learning in a social context, and this finding also has important implications for education. Evidence relating socio-economic status (SES) to brain function for language suggests that SES should be considered a proxy for the opportunity to learn and that the complexity of language input is a significant factor in developing brain areas related to language. The data indicate that the opportunity to learn from complex stimuli and events are vital early in life, and that success in school begins in infancy.

FTC was INVESTIGATING John Doerr and what did happen to the investigation under Obama? casp321@yahoo
As Lohn Doerr, original investor in Google once said: "smart ones wanting to remain in stealth mode for a long, long time"
August 3, 2009
---Google CEO and Google Chief Executive Eric Schmidt resigned from Apple's board of directors Monday -August 3, 2009], citing conflicts of interest
August 4, 2009
---ON2 & Google "merger" announcement on August 4, 2009
---ON2 shareholders filed different lawsuit against Google and ON2 BOD
From September to December 2009
---Numder of Google and Youtube Execs, including Google China President departed from Google in fear of being dragged into the ON2 shareholders lawsuit. I believe their regignation/departure Google around this time frame were related to ON2 SCAM they had involved in China, USA, Finland, UK, Germany ... "smart ones" in ON2 case could not stay in "stealth mode for a long" and had to get out on their HIDING and run away before being "HUNTED" by ON2's legal team. JMHO casp321.

Obama returns to Silicon Valley — and Yahoo CEO’s home — for May 8 fundraising
Posted on Friday, April 11 at 2:50pm | By Carla Marinucci
President Obama returns to Silicon Valley on May 8 for two high end fundraisers, including a stop at the Palo Alto home of Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer, the Chronicle has learned.
Mayer and husband Zachary Bogue’s cozy home — complete with custom movie theatre — in an upscale Palo Alto neighborhood appears to be a favorite of the President.
He hit the same location in October 2010 for another big party fundraiser.
Obama’s Palo Alto fundraiser: Giants-Phillies updates, autograph-signing, (VIDEO) and custom screening room?
Posted on Thursday, October 21 at 7:20pm | By cmarinucci
There were regular Giants-Phillies playoff game updates — and plenty of up-close-and-personal moments with President Barack Obama –for the 50 or so $30,000-a-head donors who were guests at Google executive Marissa Mayer’s exclusive DNC fundraiser Thursday.
UPDATE — President Obama, just wrapping up his Palo Alto fundraiser, headed out to the street to talk to the folks waiting outside, where he greeted kids and signed autographs.
Obama entered through the kitchen to be greeted with warm applause and standing ovation from the crowd in the adjoining dining room; they included Democratic fundraiser and Silicon Valley insider Wade Randlett.
How did On2's $50 million "baby bills" walk-away from ON2 UK Limited account from December 10, 2012 to December 13, 2012. Who told those at Google command-center about the MESSAGE posted on scratch Yahoo Financial Messages Board and did they understand the consequences of their WALKING On2's "baby bills" out of UK? You "baby bills" might crawl from "pocket-to-pocket" and "court-to-court" while "walking" On2's "baby bills" around. casp3212yahoo

The 21th Jean-Louis Signoret Neuropsychology Prize of the Fondation Ipsen has been awarded to Cathy Price (University College London, London, UK)
Paris (France), 4 December 2012 – The international jury under the presidency of Prof. Albert Galaburda (Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA) awarded on November 27th, 2012 the 21th Jean-Louis Signoret Neuropsychology Prize of the Fondation Ipsen (20.000#$%$) to Cathy Prize (University College London, London, UK). Her work played a major role in the understanding of the neurological substratum of writing and reading.
Over the last 150 years, our understanding of the neural basis of reading and writing has emerged from studies of neurologically impaired patients and functional imaging studies of healthy skilled readers.
Cathy Price’s university training was in Physiology and Psychology. Her PhD was in cognitive neuropsychology and focused on the behavioural assessment of patients with agnosia and dyslexia and her postdoctoral training was in positron emission tomography and its application to the functional anatomy of language. Since 1997, she has been funded by the Wellcome Trust to build a functional anatomical model of language that explains both skilled and functionally impaired language skills. Her future aim is to provide a clinical tool to predict speech and language recovery after stroke on the basis of structural brain scans.
About the Jean-Louis Signoret Neuropsychology Prize
Launched in 1992, this prize has been awarded by the Fondation Ipsen to many renowned specialists: Eric Kandel (1992), Jacques Paillard (1993), Rodolfo Llinas (1994), Stephen Kosslyn (1995), Alfonso Caramazza (1996), Jean-Pierre Changeux (1997), Edoardo Bisiach (1998), Joseph LeDoux (1999), Joaquin Fuster (2000), Stanislas Dehaene (2001), Deepak Pandya (2002), Uta Frith (2003), Hanna and Antonio Damasio (2004), Marc Jeannerod (2005), Faraneh Vargha-Khadem (2006), Alvaro Pascual Leone (2007), Elizabeth Warrington (2008), Pierre Maquet (2009) and Giacomo Rizzolati (2010) and Patricia Kuhl (2011).
The pair [Mayer and Armstrong] spoke privately before being joined by Zachary Bogue, Ms. Mayer’s husband. When the trio emerged from the bar at about 11 p.m., they chatted briefly with a group of journalists before retiring to their hotel rooms.

Yahoo’s Mayer and AOL’s Armstrong Have Late-Night Talk At Allen Confab
By Douglas MacMillan
Was it just two old colleagues having a late-night chat or a prelude to more serious business down the road?
Yahoo Chief Executive Marissa Mayer and AOL CEO Tim Armstrong talked over drinks into the wee hours Thursday night at the Sun Valley resort, as most other attendees of the Allen & Co. gathering of media and technology moguls sauntered off to bed.

"We're not investing in the future of America," Johnston tells Yahoo Finance in the video above. "Because we have less revenue, we are not putting the same money we used to put into research ... infrastructure ... [or] education. We are creating a more and more inefficient economy in the name of 'tax cuts will save us.'"
Why did Google China President resign in September 2009, after On2 shareholders filing several lawsuits against Google taking On2 over? Why did Russian suddenly became INTERESTED in "evalulating" On2's VP8 vs H.264? Why did those once worked with Google's Street-View who was called 'hacker-God' went to Google, as they said "mecca" to visit their "Christian-accountant" not jew or mosilim accountant? casp321@yahoo
Why did Russian evaluate On2 VP8 vs H.264 at the time of On2 shareholders were fighting with On2-steal against Google in the court? Was it coincidental or Russian were doing favour for Google to undermine the value of On2+Hantro+VP8 to let them JUSTIFY Google STEALING On2 with much cheaper price? Why Russian did not evaluate previous On2's products but suddenly became INTERESTD in evaluating On2 VP8 against H.264, the same way StreamingMedia did with VP6, after Google taking On2-Hantro over? What Russian were getting out of all of these? casp321
Funny that Yahoo ADMIN is NOT updating its Board based on RECENT timestamp. They DELAY pushing the right message with recent timestamp to the top where it belongs so legally, later on, they can claim everything was "posted" casp321@yahoo
Those at Yahoo in FEAR of some from FBI/DOJ, not those working with illegal activities with CIA/NSA, might have access, might have access to casp321@yahoo findings related to On2 theft while On2's lead-plaintiff-with-100-On2-share led the "settlement" and while three Financial "experts" having connections/relations with Google and its subsidiaries were suggesting, in October 2009, On2 shareholders to vote for On2 and Google "merger," and removing casp321@yahoo posting while letting those posting "private" information to make casp321@yahoo to be identified and killed "accidentally."
“I sent my Soul through the Invisible,
Some letter of that After-life to spell:
And by and by my Soul return’d to me,
And answer’d: ‘I Myself am Heav’n and Hell.”
“Oh, Thou, who didst with pitfall and with gin
Beset the Road I was to wander in,
Thou wilt not with Predestined Evil round
Enmesh, and then impute my Fall to Sin!”
Why Would Google hire the BEST NSA EXPERT to defend the "settled" On2 vs Google case when a lead On2 plaintiff with 100-On2-share tried to several On2 lawsuits-in-ONE in October 2009? a few days after On2 shareholders accounts were HACKED in the same months and the real identities of those account holders were DISPLAYED insted of their "handles?" casp321@yahoo
Here are the reasons: You see the MAGNITUDE of people and companies involved in the "merger" SCAM:
John Doerr, Pete Wendell, Jihn Kent Walker, Bill Hambrecht, Tim Armstrong, Paul Pelosi, Eric Schmidt, Marc Cuban, Bill Campbell, Scott Cook, Tom Weigman (from Intuit and On2 BOD untill 2010), Bill Joll, Matt frost, Paul Wilkin, Jim Bankoski, Jef Weiner, Mike Kopetski, Ben Horowitz, Marc Andreessen, John Fargis, Don Harrison, some Chinese, Iranian and Indian descendant.
China Mobile, China Netcom, China Netease, and few other chinese companies, Verisilicon, Sony, Adobe, Skype, Hantro, On2, Zencoder with On2 Flixcloud, Ceva from Israel, On2 UK Limited, Youtube, Google...

Here is EXAMPLE of HOW those involved in On2 theft, directly or indirectly made BILLIONs of dollars with only $12.5 million and $4 million investment in Google and Netscape. casp321@yahoo
Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In 1999, Kleiner Perkins and Sequoia Capital paid $25 million for 20% of Google—as of February 2014 Google's market capitalization stood at about $400 billion.
The firm was named after its four founding partners: Eugene Kleiner, Tom Perkins, Frank J. Caufield, and Brook Byers. Other notable members of the firm include partners John Doerr and.....
KPCB paid $4 million in 1994 for around 25% of Netscape and profited from Netscape's IPO and subsequent $4 billion acquisition by America Online.

Company in Ireland
Group of people sitting on chairs
In 2003, Google opened its EMEA Head Quarters in Dublin, initially employing 100 people. In 2005 and 2006, Google’s Ireland operation continued to grow and the company announced expansion projects creating over 1,100 new jobs and also expanding their premises in Dublin. The Irish operation is now Google’s largest outside of the US.
Google activities in Ireland
The investments allowed Google to meet the increasingly diverse needs of its growing number of customers – both users and advertisers - in over 35 countries across the EMEA region. Google’s original mandate included a European Data Centre, Multilingual Editing, Customer Support activities and Financial Shared Services. The Irish operation has grown more rapidly than anticipated and has expanded to incorporate the following business activities:
A ‘site reliability’/engineering team supporting Google’s European hosting and search activities.
Multilingual customer support and editing for Google’s AdWords advertising product.
Online relevancy testing and product support.
Financial and administrative shared services to support Google’s EMEA operations.
