Your Brain At Work
Brain and Brain Research Information by Viorica Marian, PhD and Anthony Shook Today, more of the world's population is bilingual or multilingual than monolingual. In addition to facilitating cross-cultural communication, this trend also positively affects cognitive abilities. Researchers have shown that the bilingual brain can have better attention and task-switching capacities than the monolingual brain, thanks to its developed ability to inhibit one language while using another. In addition, bilingualism has positive effects at both ends of the age spectrum: Bilingual children as young as seven months can better adjust to environmental changes, while bilingual seniors can experience less cognitive decline.
Do a Total Background Check on Yourself - Annual Consumer Reporting Agencies The Federal laws FCRA and FACTA, which govern the credit bureaus Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion, also regulate a whole universe of other corporations known as “nationwide specialty consumer reporting agencies” and include such companies as: ChoicePoint, Acxiom, CBC Innovis, PayChex, the Insurance Services Office (ISO), Tenant Data Services, LexisNexis, Retail Equation, Central Credit, TeleTrack, the Medical Information Bureau Inc. (MIB), Ingenix Inc., and Milliman Inc. In fact, just as financial companies rely on “credit reports” to establish credit for customers, insurance, real estate, banking, and retail companies also utilize credit report files to assess consumers and charge higher prices. For example, health and life insurance corporations rely on some of these nationwide consumer specialty reporting agencies to provide powerful technologies for evaluating and pricing individual insurance applicants: personal “medical report” files.
