Boy Scouts pledge to be drug-free

Posted in Uncategorized by thealf on October 12, 2006

This program, organized by the Church of Scientology, seems pretty cool.  It makes sense to get agreement from children while they are young not to do drugs – looks like a matter of getting to them before the other factors do, and giving them the “ammo” they need to hold their ground about staying clean and not giving in to peer pressure, etc.

“…The Boy Scouts Oath specifically calls on scouts to do their best, help others at all times. To this, a troop of Boy Scouts from La Cañada, California added the commitment this week to live drug-free lives and help their families and friends be drug-free, when they were sworn in as Drug-Free Marshals by the Drug-Free Marshals Coordinator of the Church of Scientology of Los Angeles.

In India, the Scientology Volunteer Ministers are on a roll, teaching children how to learn.

Personally, I have used the study techniques developed by Mr. L. Ron Hubbard, with remarkable results.  In many cases I have been able to study something which I previously considered impossible to learn.  Also, it was very simple – but don’t let that decieve you, it’s the simple things that are the worse when you don’t know them 😉  Furthermore, the study technology he introduces, because of it’s simplicity, can be used with children to help them learn.  However, it’s this same technology that has enabled me to study computer science, “politics,” and a number of other things – the point being introduces a way of studying, which is workable regardless of the simplicity or complexity of what you are studying.

There’s more information on Study Technology here.

I noticed an archive section down the right side of some of the news pages with several months worth of news – interesting stuff, lots of info on the Scientology  Volunteer Ministers program as it had traveled around the world, helping people with Assists, et. all.
