I have just returned from hospital.I am working in the field of PEACE for last more than two decades. But slow realisation is coming to me that hardly anyone is prepared to adopt PEACE POWER. Almost every one is for VIOLENT POWER not knowing that only PEACE POWER can conquer every thing in life and the world.For this my two books 1)Peace Technology2) Peace TimeCalendar are unwanted. That is why I want to sell the copyright of my two books.The life and world is miserable today because most of us depend on VIOLENT POWER.All these social networkings are virtual as PEACE POWER has not given its due position.
I think in this life I will not be able to influence the humanity to adopt PEACE POWER as a tool of growth and development.I propose to retire

Hey, what's going on with potentially going to Algeria?!? Do tell! Inquiring minds want to know!

Glad to see you on the video conference the other night! I'll probably be in Boston for the Alan November conference this summer and we'll have to catch up then.

Valerie, I work in Middle School and the topic of whales is not part of what we do. BUT I've sent your letter to my friend in Elementary where they do have a unit on whales, I hope it works for you guys, this is the unit http://

Thar she blows! Interested in whales? Communites? Collaborations? read on....

Our multiage class (6 and 7 year olds) is studying whaling. Using a whaling chart from 1851, artifacts which sailors brought back to Martha's Vineyard, and a young girl's journal from her trip with her father in 1862, our students will re-create local history and discover how places around the world have had an impact on their community.

We would like to invite you to share your community with us, about your location now and then, your geography, your folk songs/sea shanties.

We are particularly interested in ports commonly visited by Martha's Vineyard whaling ships, but all are welcome to learn with us.

in the United States:
New Bedford, MA
San Francisco, CA

South America:

Fiji Islands
Galapagos Islands
New Zealand (especially Bay of Islands, Kaitai)
Sunday Island
West coast of Canada

Canary Islands

If you are interested, please let me know, I am hoping we can begin working together in mid February or the beginning of March.

Thanks so much.

Languages: any - but we can communicate in English, Spanish, Portuguese and German.

Age level: 5 through 18 years old

It's the world's smallest mobile video player. Here it is. The only drawback is that the battery life seems very short. I love gadgets like this.:)
