Thanks, Will. This was a very timely video.

Eric Jensen

It's easy to get wowed by a single You-tube rant. But a cutesy pop culture video is not genuine science. The problem is that all of Williamham's claims about brain-based learning (and Bruer's too) have been shown to be false and unsubstantiated. If you want to get the real facts about brain-based learning, go to the website www.brain-based skeptic and get the truth. That is unless you're too closed minded to actually learn anything new.

Eric Jensen

Greetings...Regarding the site mentioned above about brain-based learning.... I am guessing that you figured out the specific URL is www.brain-basedskeptic.com

In either case, before you start making conclusions about brain-based education (which is now a masters and doctoral program at Harvard), read all of the home page on the site listed above. Cheers.

Will Thalheimer

Thanks Eric. Since you make your living selling "brain-based learning" I must admit I am skeptical of your claims. Your suggestion that I go to www.brainbasedskeptic.com is quite fascinating, since although it seems like an unbiased third-party examination of your claims, it is not. Unfortunately, not only are you a fraud, but you are a stupid fraud since the whois database of websites show that you are the owner of this supposed unbiased website.

Here is the information from the whois database for the website www.brainbasedskeptic.com:

By the way Eric "fraud man" Jensen, Kurt Fischer's program at Harvard is doing legitimate work on the linkages between the biological/neurological substrates and learning, but they are very careful not to apply the findings willy-nilly (or Milli Vanilli as in your case).

In fact, fraudulent efforts of the kind that you promote do nothing but hurt the honest work of folks like Kurt Fischer.

Let the truth be told. Thanks Will.

Mike

Thank you Will! It sickens me to see people like Jensen, who line their pockets with proceeds from their education fads. So much is wasted that could go to providing real educational opportunities for children. SCAM!!!!

I read once that sailors of old used to cry out 'To sail is everything; to live is not', when they were heading out into particularly choppy waters. I know it sounds a bit grim but I love the idea of taking a chance on your passion rather than living your whole life 'safe'.

Superb presentation in a matching wrapping. The websites for sale this article is probably not concerned with at all are viable alternatives to rocket fuel. The buying websites process is oftentimes not at all free of hassle and disappointment. As in your excellent post, then turnkey websites or dropship websites are quite relevant and indispensable. What urges you to buy a website or an online business is the very down-to-earth information given above.
