International Association of Cognitive Education and Psychology Conference 2013

Marcus and I have just learned that the 2013 IACEP Conference will be held in Leiden, The Netherlands. The city's site on wikipedia states that Leiden is a city and municipality in the Dutch province of South Holland. Leiden is located on the Old Rhine, at a distance of some 20 kilometers from The Hague to its south and some 40 kilometers from Amsterdam to its north. A university city since 1575, Leiden houses Leiden University and Leiden University Medical Centre. It is twinned with Oxford, the location of England's oldest university. We are very excited about the possibility of presenting at this conference! 

Author David McCullough: On Giving Thanks to Those Who Have Gone Before

Happy Thanksgiving. On this special day we are listening to prize winning author, David McCullough, at the National Book Fair in Washington DC. In a presentation on Book TV McCullough is sharing a powerful concept. It is this, how much those who have gone before us have had a strong influence on our lives to this day. He is speaking, for example, about the writers who have captured in words the vital thoughts and emotions that resonate with us today. In another example, he speaks about the architects who read, studied and then built structures we enjoy today...and so much more. Tune in to this wonderful presentation of gratitude today!
