WEFOUNDBaby Grows Up


Once primarily a tool for small businesses and entrepreneurs to introduce their products to a market, test out business concepts and make use of empty or underused real estate, these temporary stores are now used even by big retailers like Amazon in an effort to turn retail into an event. Still, the concept remains an important tool for makers and small businesses to get a toehold in the Bay Area amid the high costs of doing business, and the holiday shopping season is a prime time for them to open.

That’s the case for Sara Weymouth, who recently opened her new gift store, Lemon, in the form of a temporary pop-up in Danville.

“I think it’s a little bit of testing the market and testing out the shop as a whole,” Weymouth said of her decision to open a pop-up instead of aiming for a more permanent lease.

So there I was, staring at an adorable baby sulcata tortoise for the first time, his tiny little eyes gooped up and staring at me as he chomped away on some gross-looking browned vegetables. His eyes pleaded with me as if to say, "Please take me home." I was hooked from that very moment. He was no bigger than a shot glass when I first brought him home. Now he is no bigger than a coffee table.

Of course, there has been some time that has been passed between shot glass and coffee table. The 11 years that I have had my sulcata tortoise have gone by quick. As they say, time flies when your having fun. Now I know from experience that not all pet stores or farms will tell you everything you need to know about owning a sulcata tortoise before you purchase one. Especially the part about how fast and large they grow. I have collected everything you need to know about setting up your new pet's habitat here on this page.

This is a basic list of the things that you will need to build your tortoise house. I have gone into great detail about each one of these in later paragraphs.

Research shows that head size growth in the first year of life relates to intelligence later (Gale et al., 2006). It doesn't matter how large the baby's head was at birth, it's what happens in the first year after birth that matters most.

DNA synthesis occurs rapidly following conception and through the first years of life. Nerve growth factor is a hormone that facilitates development. Both are promoted by TOUCH .

When mothers stop touching their infants, DNA synthesis stops, growth hormone diminishes (Schaunberg, 1995). Physiologically, the baby goes into "survival mode."
