I want to thank User "xem_kia" for his postings in the Calendar section. As a part of our free online seminar auditing initiative, today I posted there (in English & Russian) information about dates/seminars when I'm likely to be translating online into Russian for auditors (from English/Italian).
Meanwhile, MEL-Headquarters approved Mexican centers' initiative to enlarge number of Skype-auditors for the English connection up to 25.
Next steps would be increase number of possible connections even further & giving all of them an option to see video.
Worldwide UE students forum admin added a possibility for registered forum users to mark their location on the map of the world.
You can take a look where we are and mark your whereabouts at: http://www.ue-global.com/vbgooglemapme.php

Subject: Who's online map
> Dear Worldwide UE friends,
> "Who's online" section of our forum http://www.ue-global.com/online.php
> gives us a chance to see who's online over the map of the world. It's done over the IP-address, so you can see dots for registered forum users as well as forum guests.
> The map has just one degree of detail & doesn't give us an opportunity to come closer, so exact location of the user stays private.
> Information is periodically renewed, so you can see how red dots periodically appear and disappear in different parts of the world.
> Exciting! You start feeling that despite differences of cultural, linguistic, professional, social & political backgrounds we come from, our Worldwide UE brotherhood is vast!!!
> Didn't Master Dang did something great?!
> Special thanks goes to our Vietnamese admin

The “Who's Online” Section is for members who have logged in only.
It occurs to me that some UE friends often try to view or post something without success, probably because they either forget to log in or haven’t registered as a member yet.
It’s very easy to register. All one has to do is click on the “Contact Us” button at the end of any forum page and then send me: email address, chosen user name, location and language. He/she will receive the confirmation soonest. (The automated registration function had to be closed due to fast growing of spammers.)
I would invite Worldwide UE students forum members to start making more information available about themselves by filling in their personal profiles & making them available for viewing. Then sometime later we can move to extensible cooperation projects - like TAT one you can find out more through the following link. http://www.idealist.org/if/i/en/h/bl...ebook-for-good
As a big worldwide community, UE students can make great difference - as we can work without letting others know, but we can also take part in activities of many other worthy causes, thus reaching out to more people, bringing our world closer to LONG HUA in every possible way
Dear colleagues and friends,
I'm sure all of us agree that UE School gives us a great tool: a method that can be used to help ourselves and others, at all levels.
To me, every UE student is like an independent NGO that works for a humanitarian cause.
It's important that we activate our cooperation and sharing, as together we can do a lot more than on our own.
Below I quote a message from "International Development" forum at www.idealist.org which might be of interest:
Date: March 25, 3:43pm
Your thoughts are great and I think having people with genuine passion for development will make a great different in thie world.
I run an organisation that I founded called Foundation for Development of Needy Communities (FDNC). see my message at: http://www.fdncuganda.org/founder_message.html
I have an idea that I am sharing with like minded people and it is called:
“Bridges for Innovation” aimed at building capacities of existing NGOs working in Eastern Uganda. Given the necessary tools, publicity and exposure, local people are the best agents to enact more sustainable social change in their own communities.
Providing locally based organizations with access to effective resources, and training in areas of common interest and creating a forum for sharing of areas of “best practice” within NGO management, with guest speakers etc would allow them to better serve their clientele.
A local center providing such services and resources in Mbale Town is one of my goals through this idea that would prove invaluable for NGOs in Eastern Uganda.
What is unique about this approach is that I am attempting to coordinate institution-building both through local resources and foreign ones.

Subject: 1st Intermediate from Torino
> Dear Paola,
> Auditing opportunities of your wonderful seminars have immense spiritual value for all those who have a possibility to connect. Thank you for continuing the work of Master Dang. From www.shyitalia.com I learned that the nearest seminar you teach in Torino will be "1st Intermediate" on May 23-25, 2008.
> I marked my intention to interpret it on the Calendar of Worldwide UE students forum as follows: http://www.ue-global.com/calendar.ph...=2008-5-23&c=1
