Since 3 June 2007
Welcome to The Center!
The Center (formerly known as Salon PolitiKo) is a place for civilized discussion of a broad range of
topics of concern to persons of all ages and backgrounds. It is also a place to come to get counseling for
serious problems or situations that you may be facing.
The following areas indicate the focus of the club:
Politics & International Relations:
Discuss all aspects and events of foreign, domestic, international relations and politics
Religion, Faith & Spirtuality
Discuss Major World Religions and also New Religious Movements, Cults, and various aspects of religion, worship,
spirituality, and faith etc.
I want to encourage all persons of faith (Jewish, Christian, Muslim) to join, I know there are a lot of religious clubs
already and thats good. I also want to encourage, sceptics, atheists, agnostics, etc. to join as well.
Cultural & Language Cooperation
Want to learn a language? Want to teach or tutor a language? Want to learn about another culture or share your own? Feel
free to post an "ad" about what you want or are looking for.
Global & Personal Issues
Discuss such topics as Animal Rights, Vegetarianism/Veganism, the Environment & Ecology
Death, Grief & Suicide
Due to the closure of the DGS club, these topics of a personal, but universal nature, will now be folded into The Center
as a place fitting for them.
Peer Counselors, Advisors & Mentors

positions will be elaborated within the club)

whether big or small.
Group counseling via open discussion. Such topics such as sexual molestation, rape, abuse, depression, eating disorders,
etc. are welcome.

Kupika acct solely for this purpose to use within the club. The second is to message me privately and I can post your

privately on any of these kinds of matters please feel free. I respect your confidentiality and will try to counsel you
as best as I can. - Eduardo
On a more public but still confidential basis, you can also write me a "Dear Eddie" letter for my advice column that
appears in my diary, if you just want some one-time advice.
