More About This Website


 In 2005, I thought that it was about time that we started the conversation: about who we are, and where we came from:

Time to differentiate ourselves from Emma Lazarus' "... huddled masses, longing to be free..." (of the 20th Century).

Recognizing that, more often than not, perception creates a reality of it's own.

Cooperative Learning






Seeing the Big Picture
Intelligence is a by-product of "learned behavior".


 Life Management... some straight talk:

1. You have 12 years to learn the "basics": the rest of your life depends upon it.

2. Those with the "ability & willingness" go on to higher education (those without it go to work).

3. As a child, time is your ally:

"I won't grow-up, I don't want to go to school..."


Trust me, it won't be that way always.


4. Did you really believe that you knew all there was to know?


 Intelligence Quotient n: a number used to express the apparent relative intelligence of a person determined by dividing his mental age as reported on a standardize test by his chronological age and multiplied by 100 (Websters 1977).
