Study reveals newborns recall
words heard in utero

American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 8/28/2013 7:20:18 AM

The little human being living inside a pregnant mother turns out to be a lot more capable than previously known. Kathy Drummond describes the research that led to the startling finding that newborns can recall words they heard in the womb in The Verge: ...new research offers provocative evidence that an unborn fetus can not only hear sounds from the outside world, but is actually capable of recalling specific words in the days following birth.

A huge big Duh! Those of us in the pro life moment know that the developing child isn´t a potential life: it is a live human being capable of thought and feelings. This new baby needs to be protected as it develops.

Modern Family had an episode of Gloria singing, in her awful awful voice, to her unborn baby. Yeah, I should hate that show but it is so darn funny.

Don´t you love it when guys and young gals suddenly discover stuff mothers have known since the beginning of time! I remember one very stuffy professor reported that the reason most women carry their babies in their left arm was because it´s where their heart is and it comforts the baby. Ding. Ding. Wrong! It´s because most of us are right handed and we can do wonderful things one handed so the baby goes to the left arm.

Several years ago, we were at a banquet and the young couple sitting next to us were expecting their first child. The Dad-to-be told me that every day he put his hands on his wife´s tummy and ´talked´ to the baby. We saw them a few months after the baby was born and he said that after the baby was born, he was standing slightly behind his wife while she held their child for the first time and the new dad said something to his wife and the baby looked right up at him. The Dad was almost in tears while telling us this story and I never forgot it.
The leftists like to say we´re anti-science but they´re the ones who look at an ultra-sound and can´t see a baby.

Every musician knows it too, #1.

People always wonder about "perfect pitch," the ability to know what pitch a note is, by simply hearing it. It´s an amazing skill.

Here´s how amazing. In college I ((I don´t have it, alas) composed a required four-part piece for a class. I was a voice major and not that great a pianist so I asked a piano student friend with relative pitch (yes, her mother was a piano teacher, as was everyone I ever knew with it) if she could play it for me so I could hear it. She looked at it for a minute, then turned to me, shocked, and said (she had simply looked at it, now) "Can´t you hear that in your head?" Not just a melody, now, chords.

In the 1960´s a Canadian University did a study and discovered that every musician or non-musician they tested with perfect pitch had a mother who taught piano.

Not a concert pianist, a viola player, etc...a piano teacher.

In utero, resting close to the keyboard, they heard everything from scales to Chopin. Pianos are polyphonic, too. They were listening, not to just a melody, but the combination of notes, put in their proper place in chord. Every day.

I was in choir with a Cuban student with perfect pitch. I ran into him after I read this study and asked him what his mother did (She wasn´t a piano teacher when we were in school.) Turns out she taught piano before they escaped from Cuba, before he was born. In America she couldn´t afford a piano so she got another job. His pitch was so incredible, he literally couldn´t sing something if the choir director changed the key of the piece.

A bit of tissue???

That’s absurd.

While that may be true, I haven´t any tangible memories of anything prior to five years old. I´ve spoken to others who claim to remember events from when they were a babe in arms. The workings of the mind are amazing.

The irony police are going to need reinforcements to handle the tsunami being generated in San Francisco. State Senator Leland Yee appeared in federal court yesterday in shackles, and faced a lengthy indictment for a series of corruption charges, including shocking allegations of gun-running – including shoulder-fired rocket launchers. An undercover FBI agent met repeatedly with Lee, a prominent gun control advocate who had authored legislation to expand the definition of “assault weapons.” (snip)The undercover agent asked about the availability of shoulder fired missiles or rockets.

Big political corruption

There are encouraging signs that the very corrupt Democrat political machine in the California state legislature may be finally getting exposed, indicted, and, God willing, destroyed. The state of California is a corrupt banana republic, run by Democrats, and spending a yearly budget in excess of a hundred billion dollars a year. Evidently, the FBI and federal prosecutors have taken notice, and the arrest last month of powerful Democrat state Senator Ron Calderon was this morning followed by the indictment and arrest of another Democrat powerhouse, state Senator Leland Yee (snip) ABC7 News has learned they are making numerous arrests

All in the family: Valerie Jarrett

Valerie Jarrett is the most powerful figure in the White House, rivalling President Obama in the scope of her influence over the fate of the Republic. Her personal Secret Service detail attests to the importance of her role in our government – in a position that is unelected and unconfirmed by the Senate. She has served as the godmother of Barack Obama’s political and personal life, from introducing him to his future wife Michelle Robinson to integrating him into Chicago’s political machine and power structure.

Mireille Miller-Young is an Associate Professor of feminist studies at the University of California-Santa Barbara (UCSB). Recently charged with robbery and assault against Thrin Short, a 16-year-old Christian demonstrator in the UCSB “Free Speech Zone,” Miller-Young justified her violence against the teenager -- who was peacefully urging mothers not to kill their unborn children -- as the moral act of a conscientious objector against a terrorist. This cockeyed characterization seemed like the expression of a functional psychosis. And how could that professor, without a single notable publication, survive the “publish or perish” rigors of academia -- with tenure? The following excerpt

Michelle´s Hard-Knock Life
Story Comes to China

Recycling her tried-and-true American dream story, Michelle Obama gave Chinese schoolchildren the same stump speech she delivers everywhere she goes, from Ireland to Chicago. The FLOTUS has used her hard-knock life tale to justify more vacations for herself than her husband has golf balls. The problem is that the story is exaggerated, and even if it weren’t, to complain about struggling as a child in a free country as opposed to a struggling as a child in a country where the annual average family income is $10,220 today, which is similar to what it was in 1972 in the U.S. when

Ho-hum, a mob of 200 teenagers rampages through the downtown of an American city, assaulting and hospitalizing people and robbing stores. The mayor calls for calm. And nobody outside that local media market, where it cannot be ignored, hears a thing about it. Now why would that be? Could it possibly be because surveillance video from a convenience store that was robbed shows all the miscreants were black?

When Barack Obama was running for president he promised, some say threatened, to fundamentally change America. The doubters now say he has fundamentally ruined America. Whichever way one views it, America is in serious decline. For a president that promised to reduce the national debt, Obama has added a massive seven trillion dollars to that debt. Under his presidency, America has accumulated as much new debt as it did in its first 227 years. He heads an Administration that produces food stamps, pries into people’s private lives, and sets government agencies against political opponents. Obama is following the guidebook of Saul Alinsky,

Jeff Bezos, the multi-billionaire (via Amazon.com) new owner of the Washington Post has got a messy situation on his hands, and unless he steps in, it appears that his new property is in danger of losing the prestige that was its primary asset. After a false hit piece on the Koch Brothers claiming they were the largest holder of Canadian oil sands land rights was devastatingly debunked by John Hinderaker of Powerline (see also: Washington Post busted!), the authors of the incorrect article responded conceding nothing, not apologizing or retracting their falsehoods, but only made their situation worse.

The Democrats’ game plan invoking Saul Alinsky’s rule # 13, “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it,” has already reached the stage of self-parody when it comes to demonizing the Koch brothers. It’s time to star mocking them ruthlessly. Case in point: The New York Times. Richard Baehr points out that in an article on a PAC backing Senate Democrats: The name Koch or Kochs comes up 14 times. And it’s not that long an article. Harry Reid’s characterization of them is of course included. But there is no attempt to identify to what degree Kochs support Americans for

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Gawker points out that such an agreement would effectively commit the United States to having a certain number of troops in the country for a number of years beyond the already-agreed-upon plan which

Three Secret Service agents responsible for protecting President Obama in Amsterdam this week were sent home and put on administrative leave Sunday after going out for a night of drinking, according to three people familiar with the incident. One of them was found drunk and passed out in a hotel hallway, the people said. The hotel staff alerted the U.S. Embassy in the Netherlands after finding the unconscious agent Sunday morning, a day before Obama arrived in the country, according to two of the people.

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions. Corporations are not people. Corporations cannot have religious views. If religious rights are extended to corporations, it puts us on a slippery slope where any private company

Okay, THAT was certainly embarrassing. At the end of a joint news conference with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte in the Netherlands on Tuesday, the applause for Barack Obama came from a grand total of one guy. One. After thanking the crowd twice for suffering through his boring, standard worn-out spiel, Obama looked around the room, expecting the usual fanfare and applause he receives from his loyal followers back home. It never came. Instead, the Leader of the Free World was met with one slow, awkward clap. Question: was MSNBC’s Chris Matthews in the house?

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said the fault of struggling to sign up on the Obamacare exchanges didn’t lie with the faulty website, but with the people who weren’t “educated on how to use the Internet.” Explaining the reasoning behind the latest Obamacare delay, Reid said too many people just didn’t know to use their computer properly and needed more time. Apparently, it had nothing to do with the well-documented failings of the website that have embarrassed the White House for months. “We have hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up who didn’t get through,” he said.

The Obama administration is prepared to give prospective Obamacare enrollees another half-month to signup for insurance coverage through the Affordable Care Act website, healthcare.gov, treating the law´s March 31 regulatory deadline as a formality for Americans who claim they tried in earnest to sign up in time.

As the U.S. Supreme Court weighed the constitutionality of a contraception coverage mandate Tuesday morning, a federal appeals court heard a separate legal challenge that could have much more sweeping implications for the future of President Obama´s health care law. And if the oral arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit are any indication, it’s time for the White House to start sweating over a lawsuit that up until now has flown relatively below the radar. At issue in the case are the subsidies that the federal government provides for individuals purchasing insurance through Obamacare. Though the text

Asked about this “delay” in the implementation of the ACA on Wednesday, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) said that there has been no delay. He added that some of the users who experienced problems with the website early on need more time, partially because “people are not educated about how to use the internet.” “There’s no hiccup or delay,” Reid insisted. “We had hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up and
