[Best Syndication] Google will expand its only books by adding up to 10 million volumes of select books compliments of twelve universities scanning selected titles.

What would otherwise take hundreds of years to accomplish will be expedited with the help of an agreement with 12 schools on the Committee on Institutional Cooperation. This will make research and learning accessible to students, facility and the public quickly and easily in the years to come.

The universities that are included in this book scanning project include Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Ohio State, Penn State, Purdue and Wisconsin -- plus the University of Chicago.

This is currently on of the largest collaborative efforts to getting books digitized for viewing on the internet.

The Drug-Free Marshals of Los Angeles celebrated their 14th anniversary with a visit to the after school program at Roy Campanella Park in Compton, California. Co-sponsored by the Church of Scientology of Los Angeles, this drug education and prevention program works in the community, providing the truth about drugs to the children of Southern California.

Noelle North, the Community Affairs Director of the Church of Scientology of Los Angeles, is the coordinator of the Los Angeles Drug-Free Marshals. Frequently seen around town sporting her "ten-gallon" Marshals hat, Noelle personally swears kids in with the Drug-Free Marshals oath.

"It's really important to me that kids make the most of their lives," said Ms. North. " L. Ron Hubbard once wrote, 'Save the child and you save the nation.' By providing youngsters with factual information about drugs, I know I'm making an important difference in their lives."

(Best Syndication) A long awaited study indicates that a program implemented in 1996 to prevent teenagers from having sex is a failure. In 1997 Congress appropriated funds to study. Researchers followed 2000 children from elementary or middle school into high school, to test the “abstinence-only-until-marriage programs” efficacy.

Some groups are happy with the results of the "Impact of Four Title V, Section 510 Abstinence Education Programs" final report released earlier today by Mathematica Policy Research Inc. Although the report did not call for an end to the abstinence program, it did call for further study.

One of the most powerful laws of human outcomes is that we attract into our life what we habitually think about. Most people have developed a habit of scarcity thinking and don't even realize that they are doing it. Let's have a look at how you can recognize scarcity thinking.

All thoughts can be categorized as either abundance thoughts or scarcity thoughts. When most people think of abundance they assume that it means the same as wealth but abundance can apply to any attribute.

For the purpose of achieving a happy life we use the word abundance to refer to positive attributes only. In other words, attributes that enhance your life in some way. This could be financial abundance but it could also be an abundance of good health, or personal fulfillment, or happiness, or good relationships, or anything else that makes living your life more enjoyable and rewarding.
