Here is another excellent website, which discusses the serious problem of cyberbullies.

It has some specific preventative strategies for parents, teachers,  and young people.

It discusses several practical ways to change the culture, in schools, as well as ideas for changing the laws.

This is a serious problem, which can escalate, if left unchecked. Depression, suicide, beatings and  murder are potential outcomes nobody wants to see.

Take action now!

Check out the very informative site below:

1Million Acts of Green

1Million Acts of Green

  

 

 Summer fun means more opportunities for all of us to:

             “Think Globally,  & Act Locally”!

    Cisco started this Green Challenge, in Canada, through the national TV network, on  CBC . Since October, 2008, I have registered and “committed”  over 345 Acts of Green  to help reduce my carbon footprint. Yes, I’m a greener! Can’t you tell?

   Now you, too, can get involved at:

   http://www.greennexxus.com/omaog/acts.aspx

    The One Million Acts of Green Challenge movement is spreading globally!  Now is the time to act. Why should we care?

   Well, we’re all in this together, & good planets are hard to find!

    Don’t you agree? Tell us about one of your Acts of Green.

            (I shall soon be writing a guest post  about this for Sheila Atwood’s Newbie’s Lifeline Blog.)
