Reduced to $255,000 Kirby Winn, Realtor Associate email: School Breaks Offer Learning Opportunities (NAPSA)-One of the best times to help your child reach his or her full learning potential may be during school vacation. "Whether your children find schoolwork too challenging or not challenging enough, vacation offers opportunities that parents can use to help them nurture their critical thinking and comprehension skills," said Dr. Mary Mokris, education specialist at Kumon Math and Reading Centers. She offers the following tips to help parents boost their children's learning during school breaks: Expand their horizons. Day Vacation offers personalized learning opportunities that can nurture a child's critical thinking and comprehension skills. trips to zoos and museums offer the opportunity for kids to learn more about the world around them and to discover and cultivate new International Theosophical Conference Coming To Julian by James Colbert, Ph.D. From different parts of the world - The Netherlands, Japan, and Brazil, those interested in Theosophy will be coming to Julian to attend a conference from August 11 - 14th of this year. Sally and James Colbert, Kentwood residents, are doing the organizing. Three of the town's lodges have been fully reserved. Many from Julian have already registered. Most of the presentations will be given at the Julian Meadow View Inn (used to be Angel's Landing) as well as the community room in our High School. Over a hundred years ago Theosophy brought the ideas from the East, including karma and reincarnation, to the West. Its introduction is considered by many to be the start of the new age. The ideas have become widespread. Theosophy is associated with meditation, yoga practices, and holistic health. The word "karma" appears to have been adopted into English. And, a recent TV series was based on reincarnation. The conference theme will be, "The Convergence of Science and Spirituality." Presenters will include three medical doctors and six Ph.D.s- associated with several universities. The principal address will be by Rollin McCraty, Ph.D., the Director of Research for the Institute of HeartMath in Boulder Creek, California. Many may recognize him as he was featured in the film, "1 Am." His research has contributed significantly to the new medical field of neurocardiology. One can be a Theosophist yet still belong to other spiritual traditions. The Dalai Lama stated in his recent book (Toward a True Kinship of Faiths: How the World's Religions Can Come Together) that it was his contact with Theosophy which inspired his thesis that compassion is the unifying principle of all religious faith. The Dalai Lama's appearance this next month (July) in Chicago is sponsored by theosophists. To register for the conference it is best to contact Sally and James Colbert (760)765-1090. Registration for the four days is $25.00. If attending one day, it is $10.00. This fee is simply to cover organizing costs., Dining during the conference is at the Julian Meadow View Inn. Rates are very reasonable at $7.00 breakfast, $8.00 luncli and $15.00 dinner. For those who would like to know more about the conference, go to the websites: and www. interests. There's a museum for every kind of interest-whether it's trains, planes, art or dinosaurs. Interact With nature. Take children for a walk in the woods or on a trip to the beach. Point out flora and fauna along the way. Take pictures of plants and animals you see and later identify them and learn about their habits. Collect seashells at the shore and research their origins. Nature walks also provide an opportunity to learn to use a compass and calculate distance. Visit the library. Vacation is a great time for reading, whether your child likes to read alone or be read to. Reading helps even the young_est children develop a sense of the rhythm and pattern of language. Reading aloud builds listening skills. Be sure to talk about what you are reading and answer any questions your child may have. Enroll your child in an enrichment program. For ex_ ample, Kumon's academic enrichment program individually tailors the curriculum to help children reach their full potential. Students develop at their own pace, progressing according to their achievement and not by age or grade. Once solid math and reading skills are mastered, students begin to advance and solve materials above their grade level in school. Even 30 minutes of this type of work every day allows children to nurture their critical thinking and comprehension skills. For more information, visit or call (800) ABC-MATH. Sp0kes00And Yokes 00OfRancho Volcan, The ox carts of Cockney Bill's Rancho Volcan were certainly the best around, according to valuations in the 1850 county assessment roll. This was literally a big paper roll listing th!ngs like cattle, forges, houses, etc. Still, they must have looked primitive like other California ox carts with big solid wood wheels and straight yokes lashed to the oxen's horns. You can see a well-worn model in Old Town's Seeley barn. I was recently 'reminded that ox cart design reached its high point already long ago. The British Museum has illustrations of carts from 728 BC crammed with refugees and baggage. The Assyrian king, Tiglath- Pileser Ill was a total jerk. After conquering and deporting people in what is now southern Iraq, he wanted to gloat some more and impress his palace visitors. So he commissioned a set of panels in bas-relief to adorn his palace walls with images of siege engines, corpses and refugees leaving home in ox carts, rolling toward slavery. I took some photos of these panels at the museum to show that the ox cart design was already more sophisticated than the California design. First, the yokes were shoulder- mounted, with ox bows looping around the animal's neck. The by Albert Simonson ...... : ......  : ' ; ...... ox could pull harder with its shoulders than with its horns. Second, the wheels were spoked rather than solid, requiring greater carpentry skill. Generally, Mesopotamian ox carts looked pretty much like those used in-Europe until recently. Cockney Bill could have cobbled together any kind of yoke or wheel if he had wanted to - in his free time he was the stage carpenter at the theater in San Diego's old mission. I can imagine Cockney Bill or his Indian vaqueros arguing, "Yeah but, our horn-lashed yokes keep the oxen from jerking around at flies and roadside grass, and. our solid wheels are stronger and last longer on these rocky roads." Blessedly, any such controversy is not our problem. It is now, as they say, history. Three Tips For Getting The Best Sound Quality From Your Digital Music Files (NAPSA)-If you're like most people, you love downloading music in a digital format so you can take your favorite tunes with you wherever you go, but you hate the poor sound quality you get from digital music. It's not just your imagination that digital music doesn't sound as good as a CD. This is because music files must be compressed for easier storage and playback on mobile devices. CDs, with a file size of 1,411.2 kbps (or 1,411,200 bits of information per second), typically deliver over 10 times more fidelity than the same song in one of the most popular digital formats, like MP3, AAC and WMA, at 128 kbps. The act of compressing the audio file, in effect, strips some of the high and low frequencies that actually provide great detail and fidelity to a song, so what you hear sounds washed out and flat. But there are ways to make your digital music sound better. Here are a few tips: 1. Bitrate Size: When choosing an MP3, AAC or WMA format, look for files that deliver music at 192 kbps. That's a nice compromise between file size and audio quality. Online music retailers, including iTunes, have begun carrying titles at a higher bitrate already. 2. CD Ripping: The audio experience of a CD ripped at home versus a professional system is substantially different. To optimize the quality when ripping CDs on a home computer, choose either 2x or 4x speed to burn your disc. Burning at the maximum speed can cause instability in the recording, which leads to pops, clicks and gaps in your ripped music. Also, make continued on page 11 "k l .I
