School Genius is for students who secretly would like to be one for a change, parents who would like their kids to attain such a lofty goal, and retired [okay even in-service] teachers who would like to enjoy and share their joys, lesson plans, stories and just plain fun. We also want to seriously give some of the GREATEST POINTERS ON the WEB on how to GET BETTER AT SCHOOL STUFF!
TUKI Island's Stimulus Package May Affect Your Pocket Book!
Welcome to our first newsletter of 2009! We are so glad to have you on our team! We couldn't wait for a government bailout so we created our own stimulus package and we want to share it with you!
This is an exciting year for CEN and Club TUKI. We are expanding our vision this year as a part of our effort to protect, educate and enhance the lives of children, one family at a time.
We realize that America is going through some pretty unprecedented times, so we are taking unprecedented measures to help you out. We are looking forward to helping families through this crisis with some exciting new opportunities to increase YOUR income, improve your health and add to your experience with CEN.

What's New With Club TUKI?
Video Sharing and TV with Chat
Starting this Thursday, we are launching TukiTV.com. You can access this amazing new technology by going to ClubTUKI.com, signing in with your username and password and clicking on TV. This will take you to our video sharing platform which is the first step toward our goal of creating The Ultimate Kids Social Networking Site. We will be adding new features to this site on a regular basis and will keep you updated on the parental controls to this new technology as well.
What is TUKI TV?
This is a fully moderated site that allows kids to view, share, download, and upload kid safe, child appropriate videos anytime. There is also a Live TV Channel, where kids can watch their favorite TV Shows (all G rated) and chat live with their friends about the show.
TUKI TV Channels include: Inspirational, Kids Making Money, Cartoons, Sports, and Internet Safety. New channels are being added all the time.
Kids (and Parents too) can create profiles to share their favorite videos, website's, books, sports, etc. They get to choose from a variety of avatars so they are not putting personal pictures on their sites. Our profile set-ups do not ask for identifying information, but it does have all the features kids want.

Internet Safety News & Tips
#1 Internet Safety Tip
Be Involved! Talk to your kids about Internet Safety. It has been proven over and over again that parental involvement is the key to keeping kids safe online.
If you do allow your children to access social networking sites like MySpace and Facebook, make your own account, be their friend, and keep up to date on their activities in an open forum of communication. Remind them WHY they should never give out personal information over the Internet and encourage safe practices.
Your Continued Support Helps Protect, Educate and Enhance The Lives of Children, Everyday!

Is Education what it was intended to be or has it become a religion?
I present here some links to Intelligent Design websites. I do so only because EVERYONE is taught about Evolution but FEW if any are ALLOWED to TEACH about the ideas about Intelligent Design.
Doesn't it strike you as odd, that scientists, and quasi-scientists like Dawkins DO NOT WANT to ALLOW ID to be presented alongside evolution??
If Evolution is purely science, should it not stand up to the questions and "but's" that intelligent people have raised about it?
Isn't an important element of education to hear BOTH SIDES of an argument and then select what you believe is most accurate?
Or have we degraded to the evolution religionists who COVER THEIR EARS and DO NOT WANT TO LISTEN to anything else except what they have been taught?
Could CENSORSHIP be leveled against the adamant evolutionist community? What else explains their lack of listening to the other side? Do they want to protect impressionable minds from being deluded? Or do they want to delude impressionable minds?
Intelligent Design is simply the idea that there is so much order and complexity in the universe of life that it is possible that life shows a design not simply an accident.
I can not as a former teacher agree that evolution is all about science. I have heard Duane Gish at McMaster University present ONLY SCIENTIFIC QUESTIONS THAT SEEM TO BE A REAL PROBLEM TO EVOLUTION. He DID NOT MENTION RELIGION ONCE!
But as soon as questions were allowed, ALL OF THE ARGUMENTS AGAINST HIS QUESTIONS assumed that he mentioned religion. HE DID NOT.
NOT ONE of these objectors EVEN ATTEMPTED to answer the questions that HE RAISED in the presentation.
There was so much blindness, seemingly lack of paying attention to what he said, that it was shocking to me.
How in a university community could people who want their students to LISTEN carefully present such a poor example of LISTENING???
The only reasonable answer can be that there is such a prejudice and bias AGAINST religion that many think they hear "religion" when NONE is ever mentioned.
That is why the other side should be aired. Some are blind to anything except what they believe. If Galileo or Copernicus were in that lecture hall in a time warp going back 500 years or more would these same people who did not hear Mr. Gish also not have heard Galileo or Copernicus?
Unfortunately I see the same lack of listening on the part of many evolutionists.
So if you are open-minded at all, please at least look at the other side.
Should Evolution be Left to The Scientists?
