We're always searching for the "fountain of youth," whether it's in lotions, potions or in-office treatments that claim to turn back the hands of time. Researchers are hard at work trying to figure out the secret to slowing skin aging, and with each report that gets published, they get closer and closer.

Life can get stressful and tiring, so the popularity of spas in the U.K. comes as no surprise.
However, while many of us treat ourselves to a massage, facial, or pedicure on occasion, some people are enjoying much more extravgant — and frankly bizarre — treatments.

A new study suggests a topical human fibroblast growth factor skincare product and a human mesenchymal stem cell growth factor product work similarly to reduce facial wrinkles, and both are safe and well tolerated. Researchers conducted a randomized, double-blind, split-face study on 20 adults with moderate-to-severe facial rhytids.
Chronic sleep deprivation could cause the brain to begin "eating itself" — resulting in significant amount of healthy neurons and synaptic connections to being destroyed.

You know online reviews from customers are important to your local business — but did you know just how important they are?

For nearly two decades Cary Collier and Doug Chambers, the innovators behind international spa management and consultancy firm Blu Spas Inc., have been involved with scores of spa projects for the likes of Four Seasons, Ritz-Carlton, Bulgari, Rosewood, and other luxury brands.
Prior to starting Blu Spas, Texas native Collier had worked in wellness and spa consulting since 1984. Chambers, trained as an attorney in Oklahoma, came into the business from the salon/day spa side of things around 1990. When asked to describe what they do today, the spa leaders stress that they are "not designers, not architects, but rather symphony conductors orchestrating teams to create sensory sanctuaries."
As with most business strategies, interactive marketing can be done very well — or very poorly. Regrettably, Burger King recently made just such a major interactive gaffe. The company's motivation was solid: Get an artificial intelligence platform to be its sales partner. How? Burger King ended a commercial not with a call to action but an odd challenge: "Okay, Google. What's in a Whopper?"

Co-taught lessons should look substantively different and richer for kids than what one teacher would do alone. A co-taught classroom provides more opportunities for students to receive feedback, which allows them to move rapidly toward self-monitoring, adjusting their strategies for success and independence. When instruction is tailored to ensure all students can access the content, it allows for more student independence as they self-monitor success and evaluate fix-up strategies.
Combination Learning is a new teaching and learning strategy for the 21st century. The definition of Combination Learning is learning through the flexible combination of two or more learning components.
