(NAPSA) - While most parents and teachers agree that science education is important for a child's future, many also say it needs to be more engaging to capture the attention of kids today. A new national survey conducted by Harris Interactive shows how technology, including the Internet, is a good way to provide the resources and teacher mentoring opportunities that will help kindle a love of s( ience in children. The survey showed that almost all science teachers (97 percent) and parents (92 percent) agree that the Internet should be used more to make interesting science education materials available to teachers. Additionally, they agree that it can be a great way to support mentoring efforts (99 percent and 96 percent, respectively) and a good tool for parents to engage in their child's education (98 percent and 96 percent, respectively). "It is important that students today understand that science is more thar what they read in a textbook," said David Miller, president and CEO of the educational nonprofit Illinois Biotechnology Industry The Sons The holiday season is upon us and the pace quickens for all. There are great annual events in town, the weather is appropriately cold, snow threatens and there are those whose workload increases in charitable works as Christmas and Hanukah approach. This is the first year that I know of that there will be a food drive barrel at the Legion. For the most part, members of this great organization are some of the most community minded and generous people I know. In addition to the cash contribution the Sons make, were hoping for a large donation in the form of food. Don't be shy if you don't belong and would like to donate. There a couple of great breakfasts and dinners planned this month where you can drop your donation prior to your meal. Speaking of breakfast, the . Sons start the month this Sunday with their final breakfast of the year. The beneficiary will be the Julian H.S. Girls Basketball Team. The ladies approached the Sons because there are not enough funds to transport these kids to away games. In the past, parents have transported the girls in personal vehicles and refused reimbursement costs. Many of the Sons have played high school sports and have, or had kids in athletic programs and recognize the rich experience and life long memories it brings. We would like to see these kids be able to travel to other campuses and not be limited to home games. A big, breakfast turnout could possibly pay the entire transportation cost for the season. The girls will be out selling tickets this week and if you can come up with the seven bucks, you help a great local cause and get a great breakfast too. For SAL members, DON'T FORGET! Tuesday night, at 7PM our monthly meeting. For Legion ladies and gents, we're talking about Hump Day Dance Night. Look to this column for details. Oh yes, C-A-M-A-R- A-D-E-R-I-E .... I know, I know.

"As educators, parents and mentors, it is our responsibility to take science beyond the pages of a book." To help science teachers make science more engaging and relevant in the classroom, Astellas Pharma US, Inc. launched Science WoRx, a program that provides mentoring opportunities with real-world scientists, as well as online resources for teachers, all accessible through the Internet. Through video lessons and online resources such as Skype, teachers can bring a Science Pro into their classroom virtually to work with their students and conduct grade-level-appropriate experiments that demonstrate the impact of science. Parents can even watch the videos with their kids, helping them learn more and get more excited about science from their home computer. More information about Science WoRx and the Virtual Science Pro program can be found at Get Smart On Online Safety (NAPSA) - With more than 1.9 billion Web users worldwide, not everyone is equipped with the information needed to stay safe. Everyone should know which sites to trust and how to guard against online hackers and scams. Here are five smart, simple, must-know tips for online safety: Look for Visual Cues There are a few easy-to- recognize visual cues that identify safe websites. When conducting transactions, make sure website ad-dresses contain "https" instead of "http" as the "s" means "secured." Many browsers will also turn their address bars to the color green to signify the site is authentic. Lastly, scan the entire Web page for a trust mark, such as the VeriSign Trust Seal. These marks demonstrate that trusted authorities such as VeriSign, the Better Business Bureau or TRUSTe have taken comprehensive measures to certify such things as security, online business ethics or customer privacy standards. Create Strong Passwords Everything has a password, from online banking to e-mail to social networking accounts, and it is important not to take these passwords for granted. According to a 2010 Imperva report, the most common passwords are "123456," "abc123" and "password1." Stay away from these easy-to-guess passwords, donOt use the same password for more than one account and change your passwords every couple months. Watch out for Phishing E.mails Hackers frequently lure people through "urgent" e-mails requesting personal information or offerir g "too good to be true" deals. Follow the age-old mantra that if an offer sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Also look out for misspelled words and grammatical errors. These are telltale signs of phishing scums. Don't Be Susceptible to Malware The latest, and most sophisticated tools among hackers include various forms of malicious software known as malware. Hackers use malware to steal sensitive data such as credit card numbers or other personal continued on page 15 December 1, 2010 FREE Trees December 4th Friends of the Forest will offer free seedlings of Julian area native trees on December 4. Seedlings for about 2000 trees, all adapted to mountain growing conditions, will be available at the Julian Library parking lot starting at 9 a.m., according to Wynola resident Art Cole, who is organizing the distribution. "We'll have seedlings for the following trees: ponderosa pine, big cone fir, Cuyamaca cypress, incense cedar, coulter pines, and Engelmann oaks." All seeds come from local trees and have been propagated by Julian area gardeners: David Jensen, CalFire, Billy and Fran Lambert, and Josh and Carla Grant. Now in its third year, the goal of the distribution is to help re- forest Julian areas that were devastated in the Cedar Fire in 2003. Cole has worked with Chula Vista nurseryman Bill Nelson on the program. Nelson provides the expertise of years of growing trees in the San Diego area. As they did last fall when the distribution was held, members of the Master Gardeners will teach participants how to plant and grow each plant. They will have handouts that detail site selection, how to dig the right size and shape hole, watering needs, and protecting the young plants from predators. Added to the program this year is a presentation on Wildflowers in the Landscape by Su an Fowler, a member of the Julian Woman's club who has worked on the wildflower show for years. Her talk will be at 11 a.m. in the library community room. Get there early, Cole advises, for best selection. The number of trees you can get is based on the size of your property, roughly at the rate of 5 seedlings per acre. This has been a very productive tree-planting program for the Julian area, according to Cole, who says that more than 30 percent of the trees that were planted have survived. For additional information contact Art Cole at 760/765- 1771. The universe is but one great city, full of beloved ones, divine and human by nature, endeared to one another. -- Epictetus
