Good morning. It’s Monday, January 19, 2009, and this is your first early morning Kids briefing. Cynopsis is closed today in recognition of Martin Luther King Day, though you can probably reach any of us via email. Here is an abbreviated edition – we’ll be back with a full edition tomorrow.

Channel One will provide its own special coverage of the Presidential Inauguration to middle and high school teachers and students tomorrow, Tuesday, January 20.  Channel One will offer its special edition Inaugural Day following President-elect Barack Obama’s Inaugural address and acceptance into office.  The Inaugural program will be available to educators in Channel One Network schools beginning on Tuesday at 2:30p and will remain available through May 31, 2009.  The special is in addition to the network’s regularly scheduled morning broadcast for that morning.  Additionally, on Wednesday, January 21, Channel One News will dedicate its entire 12-minute program to the Inauguration.

Actor George Takei, best known as Sulu from the original Star Trek TV series, will be featured in an episode of Lucasfilm Animation‘s Star Wars: The Clone Wars, which will debut on Cartoon Network Friday, January 23 at 9p.  Takei lends his voice to the veil Neimoidian general Lok Durd in a special episode titled Defenders of Peace.

Girl Ambition, a new interactive social community aimed at tween girls up to 13 launches.  A sort of Facebook for the tween girl crowd, Girl Ambition is designed as a safe and positive place for tween girls to go and take part in online and offline activities (videos, contests, IM, email, webisodes) and learn about online safety and the like.  Founded by three moms, the site also offers resources for parents, which includes parental controls and advice from experts.  Girl Ambition is a subscription-based site ($4.99/month or $49.90/year), which will feature sponsored events, with advertising to be sold in the parent’s section of the site.
