FRIDAY HARBOR, Wash. - June 27 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- "A form of insanity grips modern, consumer-oriented cultures; it is a nature-deficit sickness that can only be cured by genuinely reconnecting with the natural world that nurtures us," reflects Dr. Charles Yaple, Editor, in his June column in "Taproot," the Journal for Education in the Outdoors at SUNY, Cortland. Disputing noted science writer Alan Caruba, Yaple and his experts say that we have lost the sanity to bond with things of lasting value in nature so we stressfully pursue endless temporary fixes. For this reason we suffer from anxiety, mental illness and the pollution our inadequate substitutes for nature produce.

Taproot's introduces "Ecopsychology," an environmentally sound relationship-building psychology, as an excellent tool to stop the "nature-deficit disorder," that Richard Louv identifies in his book "Last Child in the Woods." Ecopsychology improves our well-being by enjoyably reconnecting our thinking with the balancing and restorative powers of nature.

"Taproot's" lead article salutes Dr. Michael J. Cohen, the pioneering founder of Project NatureConnect who directs course, job, grant and degree programs at the Institute of Global Education. It explains Cohen's Organic Psychology, a sensory, healing way of thinking and feeling with natural systems, within and about us. Organic Psychology improves our ability to build constructive relationships.

Taproot says it offers Cohen's nature-sensitivity enabling tools to help us consciously connect our thinking with the natural world's unifying grace and cooperative ways; because we passionately support what we love, we personally and environmentally benefit from embracing the beauty, intelligence and sanity of nature.

"Gatherings," the International Ecopsychology Journal, states, " 'Taproot' makes a significant contribution to improving our relationship with ourselves and the environment." In disagreement, Caruba declares Ecopsychology is an absurd pseudo-science, a hogwash psychobabble about problems it alleges we cause by living our extremely nature-separated lives. Cohen notes, "Sadly, Mr. Caruba is a victim of socialization that trains us to believe the lies of our nature-exploitive ways."

The Coalition for Education in the Outdoors is a supportive non-profit network of environmental education centers, conservation and recreation organizations, schools, fish and wildlife agencies, and businesses.

CULVER CITY, Calif. - June 20 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Actor and comedian, Tom Arnold, will address the Class of 2005 graduating from the Kayne Eras Center (KEC) School on June 22. All 23 graduates are youngsters challenged by learning, developmental or emotional disabilities who have overcome many obstacles to arrive at this significant milestone. Of the graduating class, 15 students are already enrolled for the fall term in area colleges and trade schools.

Arnold, an important supporter of the KEC School and long-time advocate for children, will inspire these young adults to reach further and achieve their best. Dwight Counsel, KEC School Principal, highly values Arnold's support.

"It's so important to show these kids that they can do anything they set their hearts and minds on," explains Counsel.

"While they have many challenges to face as adults, our graduates have learned important skills and techniques to overcome their disabilities. Tom Arnold helps us say it loud and clear, 'You CAN,'" Counsel adds.

The Kayne Eras Center (formerly known as ERAS) was established in 1980 to address the lack of direct programs and services for disabled children and young adults in Los Angeles. The Center is located in the heart of Culver City, California, and operates a K-12 non-public school for up to 250 students; an agency providing diagnostic and therapeutic services; and programs offering therapeutic arts and enrichment activities, post-secondary vocational training and mental health services.

The Kayne Eras Center has a history of successfully providing educational services for more than six thousand youth with a range of developmental, neurological, medical, learning and emotional disabilities. Strong in the belief that, "individual success is the priority," KEC focuses on the strengths of each student to improve self esteem, remediate disabilities, and teach skills for long-term achievement.

Arnold will address the graduating class at an intimate commencement ceremony at 10:00 a.m., Wednesday, June 22 in the Tom Arnold Theater at KEC. The theater was named in Arnold's honor for a generous gift he made during construction of the KEC facility. Arnold continues to support the Center each year by organizing the Tom Arnold Celebrity Roast. This event has raised more than $500,000 for the Center. Arnold's wife, Shelby Roos Arnold, actively serves on the Kayne Eras Center Board of Directors and is a member of the Angels, a KEC support group.

About ACSUS

ACSUS was formally established during a conference held at Duke University in 1971. Until 1975, the Association was managed through the Canadian Center at the School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) of the Johns Hopkins University. Between 1975 and 1984, ACSUS was an affiliate of Meridian House International. In 1982, through the generous assistance of the Exxon Education Foundation, ACSUS established its secretariat in Washington, D.C., and in 1984, ACSUS became completely independent and relocated to the National Center for Higher Education; the relocation was due in part to the Association's rapid and dramatic growth and the assistance of the William H. Donner Foundation. After thirteen years at One Dupont Circle, ACSUS' sub-lease was terminated and the Association relocated to new office space at 1424 16th Street, NW, Suite 502, Washington, D.C.

Math-a-Mania(tm) game makes learning math fun for children and adults

TULSA, OK /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Raynece Leader-Thompson was only thirteen when she created the Math-a-Mania(tm) game that makes learning math fun for children and adults. As she accepted invitations to demonstrate the game for school districts across the nation, she saw first-hand the lack of supplies in many of the classrooms. As sales of "Math-a-Mania(tm)" increased, Raynece asked her mother Johnece, president of the games distributor Math Workz, LLC (www.mathworkz.com), to help find a way they could fill this need. The "Teachers' Wish List" is a result of this desire.

A percentage of each quarter's sales is set aside to grant teacher's wishes for their classrooms. By completing a simple form on the Math Workz website, www.mathworkz.com, teachers across the U.S. can enter. An independent panel chooses each quarter's winner and the supplies are shipped to the school.

Johnece says, "We look forward to reading every entry. Some are funny, some heartbreaking, but every one is worthy. As the company grows, the awards will grow and well be able to give back even more."

Now sixteen, Raynece attends public school and travels with her mom to demonstrate the game for organizations, schools and parents. She says, "I love to see the kids' eyes light up when, after playing Math-a-Mania, they suddenly understand that math problem they've been struggling with."

"Math-a-mania helps children relax and have fun without realizing that they are learning," she adds. There are four levels to this game so it allows you to adjust the game to the level of the players. "Playing this game is a perfect way to master basic addition, subtraction and multiplication. You can also incorporate division as well," says Raynece.

The instructions are simple and in both English and Spanish. Raynece cautions players that, "Math-a-Mania can become addictive!"

The "Teachers' Wish List" is open to all U.S. teachers -- not just customers of Math-a-Mania(tm). Teachers interested in Math-a-Mania(tm) demos should contact their Service Centers or School Districts and request a visit from this charming teen.
