Technology and Construction News


-- Quote of the Day -- 
 
“…Neurofeedback is biofeedback – it has been around for a very long time. The difference is just what part of the body you are giving feedback to. And it literally is feedback – in the same way that you use feedback to children to teach them such as saying don’t or from natural consequences (like touching a hot stove, we learn when it is red it is hot and not to touch that. …So what happens with Neurofeedback we are able intentionally give feedback to the neuronal activity in the brain at such a quick pace (a millisecond) – we can say ‘not so much of that’, or ‘a little more please’. We want to see a balance in the brain wave activity. …(In dealing with other children when we have special kids) …it is really about weaving it together; being inclusive and using every opportunity. Let’s say you are taking Sara along when Bobby is going to therapy. So you can have Sara bring along her homework that you two can concentrate on while sitting in the waiting room. …Let’s say that you see a reaction with dairy for one child, but the whole family is having dairy – creating a rift. I’ve seen kids deal with the nutritional issue better than the psychological issue of not being able to eat what the other kids are eating.”

Kudos goes out to the construction company Takenaka Corp. was able to build a highly energy-efficient office building, called "Ecohouse," along with a factory employing a total of 70 environmental technologies at half the C02 emissions – compared to the average office building in the Hokkaido area.
They did this – according to the Japan for Sustainability Newsletter www.japanfs.org - by implementing energy conservation measures, employing local workers, using local materials, utilizing natural energy sources like geothermal and solar power, and reducing construction byproducts. They also incorporated a landscaping design based on the surrounding natural forest with careful attention to biodiversity.
