Learning is a lifelong challenge, but most people can usually only attend college for a few years or at most a decade. The purpose of this website is to be helpful by providing important ideas and information probably not found in university courses or traditional literature in a clear concise manner. More: ABOUT US

We are at a phase in history, when worthy but distressed young people are turning to a variety of lawful and illegal brain destroying drugs and focusing on depressingly vicious entertainment. As a result, a few young people are becoming suicidal slaughterers of defenseless little children and innocent adults while very many more youths ruin or diminish their own lives. Young people need to be told repeatedly by their coaching mass medias, schools, parents, and associates that, “Acquiring knowledge, thinking, hard work, exercise, sports, patience, friendships, love, good diet, and charitable activities are the most powerful and unbeatable self-medications.”           El Penski, December 18, 2012

Respect for a positive religion is essential for a sustainable and workable, civilized society. A positive religion is a set of beliefs, culture, or ideology that fully embraces the challenge of the unselfish and hardworking devotion of our lives to our family, fellow humans, diligence, justice, truth, our mother earth, all forms of life, our own health, and to the understanding of our astonishing colossal universe. Nearly all of humankind's problems stem from deficiencies in this constructive foundation.           Please click here to read more on the above principles

Most people like to complain at length about difficulties, but if some of that energy was devoted to thinking about, researching, and/or rectifying problems; we would all be better off.

Waves at Sunrise -- Beautiful and Awe Inspiring

Composed of elements brewed by nuclear transformations in stars
Propelled by distant storms, bodies, collisions and explosions for many billions of years
Molded by trillions of complex weak interactions which we take for granted
While frozen, chemically bound, and gaseous water are found throughout the cosmos
Liquid water appears to be a rare substance in the universe
Fluid water is a beautiful and miraculous - the most critically important basis of life
Unappreciated by an extraordinarily, gargantuan, violent universe
Except for a small portion of humankind.                              El Penski

Greatest Quotes of All Time          

    In various wordings and not as concisely, the “Golden Rule” has been probably included in the writings, of nearly every religion, culture, and philosophy since writing was invented, about 6,000 years ago.* I think it is the greatest quote of all time. “You should do unto other people as you would prefer others to treat you.“
    I consider that the second greatest quote is “You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.“ by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, 1749-1832.

* Issac Myer, The Oldest Books in the World, John F. Osbourne, Baltimore, MD, 1935.

“Get it all on record now - get the films - get the witnesses - because somewhere down the road of history some @$@%# will . . . say that this never happened.”
    President Eisenhower talking about the Holocaust when he observed it first hand. From GoodReads.com, Dwight D. Eisenhower Quotes, Goodreads Inc., 2013. If the history of the Holocaust can be altered, all of history can be turned to falsehood. False histories are useless.

Whether rich or poor, whether good looking or not, and whether famous or unknown; life is very hard for every person on planet earth and every person has value in some way for humanity.     El Penski, October 2013

Most of the arts, politics, love and religion are outside the domain of logic, science, and scholarship;
but while having the most dominant impacts on humankind.
    El Penski, October 2013

"Fear of something is at the root of hate for others, and hate within will eventually destroy the hater."    George Washington Carver, From GoodReads.com, George Washington Carver Quotes, Goodreads Inc., 2014

Avoidance of war, disease, and calamities are a million times as valuable as cures, treatments
or resulting funerals.

conduct by children, politicians, CEOs, dictators and Presidents.

El Penski, February 2015

Worldwide: responsible media and leaders should be fixated on helping
humanity instead of "gotcha" politics and jailing or killing people for what they think.

El Penski, February 2015

Nearly every opinion is based on someone's life experiences, on when and where they were educated, and/or on research by fallible humans. While most opinions are not 100% correct nor 100% in error, most beliefs deserve some respect. El Penski, March 2015

"Socialism is legal Plunder . . . Socialists, like all other monopolists, desire to make the law their own weapon."   Federic Bastiat, The Law, Martino Publishing, Mansfield Centre, CT, page 22, 2011. This book was first published in 1850.

"The unsurpassed aid with education, poverity, and many medical problems is self-help with hard work."
