Extractions: Home > Parenting The air is crisp, the leaves are turning brilliant colors and falling to the ground, and neighbors are decorating their yards with corn stalks and pumpkins. Teach your child about autumn using the numerous examples in your yard, neighborhood and community. Steps: Walk outside. Let your toddler experience firsthand the feelings and sights of fall. Point out that it is getting colder, and it is getting dark sooner. Emphasize the need for warmer clothes. Talk about the trees and the different colors they are turning. Collect leaves and tell your child in simple terms why they are falling off. Play in the leaves. Tell your toddler that the trees and animals are getting ready for winter. Notice any acorns or other seeds falling from trees, and point out the squirrels gathering them for winter. Pretend you are squirrels and collect seeds. Decorate your house with fall colors and objects. Use construction paper and glue to make a variety of decorations. Make a pumpkin patch using orange, yellow and green construction paper. Use brown, red, yellow and orange paper to cut out leaf shapes. Tape the leaves on windows or glue them onto sheets of paper for a leaf collage.

We need to think of "letting go" as a sacrament, because to let go is so very difficult. When our children were younger, I would sometimes hear them say: "Dad, you worry too much." And I would reply, "I'm a parent; it is part of my job!" And they would wrinkle their faces and squint their eyes and say something like: "O, Dad, give it up. Let go!" There may have been a piece of me that was on target. However, a piece of their message was also on target. The sacrament of letting go. A tough sacrament to learn.

Family.org Focus Over Fifty Fall Trees The changing colors of autumn teach us that changes in our lives are inevitable, and, when God is involved, an opportunity to grow. http://www.family.org/focusoverfifty/justforyou/a0017913.html
Extractions: Fall Trees Though changes are inevitable, the roots of our faith remain firmly grounded. By Nancy Parker Brummett Fall is the time of year when those trees we may have taken for granted all summer long suddenly demand our attention. Two such magnificent maple trees are firmly rooted in my memory. One stands outside my childhood bedroom window beside the house in Tennessee where my mom still lives. I call it my "thinking tree," because I spent hours draped in its limbs, pondering life. Our nation has known drastic change beyond the changing of the leaves this fall, but we will weather our recent tragedy and the changes that loom ahead. The other was dubbed "Mom's tree" by my son, because for four autumns in a row I sought it out on his Midwestern college campus and took its picture. I haven't seen this tree for years, but I'm sure it's still there, watching over backpack-toting students shuffling by with their minds on anything but leaves. We are fortunate to have multi-colored autumns to color our memories, yet we shouldn't let those memories diminish our enjoyment of fall wherever we find it. Fall in Colorado means golden aspens and the corresponding mass exodus to the mountains to gaze at their quaking leaves. Those who trade glorious autumns in New England or the Midwest for gentler climates in Florida and Arizona may be gazing at palm trees rather than maples or oaks, but they can still appreciate the changes fall brings.

Extractions: e-mail: EEEN@projekte.org The objective of the Teach-ins is to take advantage of the participant's expertise at the Hannover Conference, and to offer this expertise to other participants through various intensive training sessions. The focus of the training will be on issues such as effective implementation of management instruments and tools, and specific skills and behaviours which are increasingly required when coping with today's environmental challenges in local government. The teach-ins will take place during the conference and/or in addition to it, in different venues in Hannover. A teach-in will last for approximately six hours. Each of them will be conducted by one or two trainers who have profound knowledge on their topic (though not necessarily professional experiences as trainers). They are expected not only to present concepts to the participants, but to show how to use them by applying them in different ways and situations. A certificate for successful attendance will be provided to the teach-in participants after the sessions. Preferred language is English. In exceptional cases it might be possible to organise Teach-ins in other conference languages, i.e. in French, Spanish, Russian or German.

Extractions: " After almost nine years of publication, we present our first cover story. In the past, the art work on each cover had no particular connection to one of the articles on the inside of the magazine; it was simply something that caught our attention because of some beautiful, clever, or unique way of depicting a keyboard. This time, the story came first. The story is the fascinating approach to recital and concert planning that is being taken by the Pasadena Conservatory of Music, a community music school in that Southern California city. It has come about as the result of adding an Artist in Residence at the school whose job description includes audience development. No better person exists for that job than John Steinmetz. It has been one of John's missions in life to bring to the attention of musicians that we may, very possibly, have been doing things exactly backwards when it comes to luring the public to come pay attention to the kind of music we love. Click here to read about how the Pasadena Conservatory is making the audience feel that they are an integral part of the musical happenings that go on at the Conservatory.
Extractions: Included: We've raked up a pile of activities for you to "leaf" through! It's fall! That means shorter days and cooler nights. And, in many parts of the United States, it means that trees will soon shed their leaves after a final colorful salute to summer. Trees that drop their leaves each fall are called deciduous trees. You might ask your students why they think dentists refer to baby teeth as "deciduous teeth"? See if your students can figure out the connection! And here's another question for your students: Did you know that a tree's leaves are orange and yellow even in summer? Most leaves include the pigments of all three colors. It's just that the pigment chlorophyll (the pigment that makes the leaves green) is a much stronger pigment than the others. It covers the yellow (xanthophyll) and orange (carotene) pigments that are natural to a tree's leaves. But, come fall, a tree's leaves produce less chlorophyll. Now the other colors can show through. And that they do in brilliant explosions of color!

Help me to recognize the progress in my spirit, to see the fruits of character and insight that have developed since last spring. Let me hold those gifts close to my heart as sacred and special. As I move into autumn, teach me balance. Let me know the wonders of both sounds and silences, rest and action, the temporal and spiritual. As I walk the path of Beauty, keep my eyes on the horizon but my feet grounded in truth. May this be true and correct for the good of all. So mote it be.

Extractions: Click here for PDF version The burgeoning private education sector in India holds some surprising lessons for both developing and developed countries alike. A common assumption about the private sector in education is that it caters only for the elite, and that its promotion would only serve to exacerbate inequality. On the contrary, recent research points in the opposite direction. If we want to help some of the most disadvantaged groups in society, then encouraging deeper private sector involvement is likely to be the best way forward. This piece outlines three developments in India, all of which involve the private education sector meeting the needs of the poor in distinct ways. But India is not unique in this respect. Similar projects are happening all over the developing world.

A few months ago, I checked into the Park Hyatt Hotel. When I arrived, a concierge met my car and greeted me at the door. She escorted me to a comfortable chair, and offered me a welcome drink. She already had my details on computer, so she had pre-printed the necessary documents and key card. All I had to do was sign the credit card slip. I was then escorted to my room where I found my bags waiting for me. The elapsed time was about five minutes and the stress level was less than zero.
Extractions: Friday, October 24, 2003 Printer friendly version Students who seek an alternative to traditional autumn activities need look no farther than this weekend's schedule for Ijams Nature Center. Ijams is hosting two events for those wishing to learn about the nature in the area while in an autumn setting. "If you're interested at all in natural history or biology, these events would be great to come to," Peg Beute, conservation programs director at Ijams, said. Admission to both events is free for members of the nature center; for non-members, the cost is $3. Inspired by Halloween, the first of these two events, No Fright Friday, starts at 7 tonight. During this program, staff members of Ijams will teach about bats and spiders. "Haunted houses are getting pretty lame," Justin Buck, a senior in religious studies, said. "I think looking for bats and spiders is an awesome alternative to seeking out cheesy teenagers in latex masks." The program begins inside the nature center with a history of bats and spiders. The event guides will dress up an attending child as a bat to use as a living diagram to explain bats. They will also teach the group how to distinguish one kind of spider from another by the glow of its eyes when the light from a flashlight hits them.

Melrose Gym was once again unavailable as an Adult Coed Volleyball site with pick-up games played two nights per week. Recreation Sites The School District Recreation sites scheduled activities from 5:00pm to 8:30pm, October 15 to December 13, at no cost to the participants, ages 5-16. Hamilton, Woodward, and Steele and the Boys and Girls Club on Hanover Street were open Monday through Thursday. Downey was open two nights per week. The relationship with the Harrisburg School District has developed into a very strong one, and all parties strived to increase the number of indoor sites available to the Harrisburg Youth. Once the rehab projects are completed, the goal for next year will be to expand one additional site on Allison Hill sites for four nights. Penn State Intern/Job Fair

Sons and daughters will bring their family members back to their parents' house, typically having dinner together, for a reunion. The festival dates back to the Tang dynasty 618 A.D. As with many Chinese celebrations, there are ancient legends to explain the holiday.

The views expressed by contributors may not be those of RNIB. ISSN 0961-9879 Welcome to the autumn issue of Visability. 'Life skills' form an essential part of any young person's education. For parents or teachers of visually impaired children it is vital to think beyond school to future independent living. Joyce Chatterton discusses how best to introduce daily living skills to younger children to enable them to successfully feed and dress themselves both at school and in social situations. On the subject of shopping, Visability recently asked 4 visually impaired young people to take a critical look at whether High Street shops met their needs and also how they themselves would deal with shopping independently. The results make interesting reading!
