Journalist Ed Kane's New Fiction Story for Kids

"How Dare You" by Edward Kane A Magical, Enchanted Running Adventure to Important Life Lessons. I find it an enchanting, magical story of value to young girls. This is Ed Kane's Announcement I'm so pleased to announced that I've just published a fiction story for young girls.  "How Dare You" is the enchanting adventure of 10 year old, spunky Cordy.  Cordy's family just moved and she's entering a new school, not knowing anyone.  She has no friends, with one big exception - her wonderful dog Bash. Running to Life Lessons To remedy her lonely situation, Cordy joins the school's new girls' cross country team.  And with that, she embarks on an enchanting running adventure into a magical forest of firefly highways and talking animals.  Cordy's runs teach her the value of friendship, teamwork, always doing your best and looking for goodness in others.  For a free Kindle borrow, go to  https://

Sleep Essential for Learning - UK Research

All-Night-ers Don't Work Students should make sleep an educational priority.  A good night's sleep is essential for human memory.  Neuroscientists are just starting to understand why.  All-night-ers don't work for exams.  In fact, they're the worst thing you can do. UK Sleep Research Scientists at the Royal Holloway University in the UK have documented that sleep is essential to embedding knowledge in the brain.  Sleep affects memory, especially the recall needed to learn language. To Sleep or Not to Sleep The researchers documented two groups of students learning new vocabulary words.  The group that got a good night's sleep far outperformed the group that pulled-off all night-ers.  The bottom line:  prolonged sleep is actually good for kids and adults.  It's critical for brain function and healthy body rhythms.  And, for students, it's a priority for better test performance and grades.
