Over the years critics of "modern medicine" have pointed out that those know-nothing know-it-alls have not cured cancer yet.

A new software that was developed using new discoveries in neuroscience is helping children improve their reading skills earlier and may very well be useful for teaching adult literacy students and English as a second language learners.
When Christian theologians came to the conclusion that the ancient Greek and Roman literature could be informative and enriching despite its pagan source it sparked the renaissance. Unfortunately not all of those works of ancient times survived the fall of Rome and the dark ages. A huge cash of such documents was discovered over a century ago but it was almost completely illegible. Never throw anything out! New technology which has made use of infrared cameras and satellite imaging software has brought these texts back to life. While it might be somewhat much to expect, as some experts are doing, a new renaissance, the development will increase the amount of written material from the classical period of Greek and Roman civilization by up to 20 percent, with texts of Hebrew, Egyptian, and Nubian civilizations included. It is hard to say currently what will be learned but the horde of documents include works by some of the greatest poets of the time as well as lesser, more popular works that could help fill in our picture of the ancient world.
And they say there is no such thing as progress.
