A Zippity-Do Car by Albert Simonson Miffed at gas prices? Here's a Norwegian remedy. A few weeks ago, I marveled at this tiny one-man electric car in a lovely town at the head of the deep, narrow Nordfjord. The norseman in the middle is telling us that the fuel cap under his hand is only for the heater. If there is a passenger sitting on your lap, you might not need the heater. Depends on the passenger, he explained. Those are 3-inch casters behind the rear wheels. I don't suppose this road rocket has the kind of acceleration that peels back your lips, but just in case, those casters keep you fromflipping backwards. I guess flipping could be a problem if you have heavy stuff in that trunk going up the fjordside roads. Norway has oodles of offshore oil, but gas costs 9 dollars a gallon, to promote conservation of a limited resource. Norway's oil, like ours, benefits multinational corporations, but Norway has this novel idea that it should also benefit the health and education of its citizens through its partially state-owned Statoil Corporation. The people I talked with seemed very pleased with the way things are there.

Sol Friday July 8th o 7:OOpm o Preview Educating The Whole Child (NAPSA)-Every person, from classroom teachers to lawmakers, has a responsibility to ensure that each student is healthy, safe, engaged, supported and challenged. An effort to support this idea is being led by ASCD, formerly known as the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development. The effort, called ASCD's Whole Child Initiative, promotes an education system where: Each student enters school healthy and learns about and practices a healthy lifestyle. Each student learns in an intellectually challenging environment that is physically and emotionally safe for students and adults. Each student is actively engaged in learning and is connected to the school and broader community. Each student has access to personalized learning and is supported by qualified, caring adults. Each graduate has been challenged academically and is prepared for success in college or further study and for employment in a global environment. ASCD is calling on educators, policymakers, business leaders, families and community members to work together to institute a "whole child" approach to education. ASCD is considered a global leader in providing programs, products and services for educators that they can use to improve student achievement. According to Dr.. Gene Carter, executive director of the organization and former school superintendent, today's educational system needs to prepare each young person to work in careers that have not yet been invented; to think both critically and creatively; and to evaluate massive amounts of information, solve complex problems and communicate well.
