I am trying to get away from Google some. At Reference I don't like to use sites like Yahoo because there is so much clutter on the page. But Yahoo does have a clean search page at http://search.yahoo.com/. Two other clean search pages are Ask.com and MSN Live. I am going to try to use a specific search engine, other than Google, consistently for a week to see if I feel like I am missing things or that my searches take longer.

I wanted to get a larger SD card for my digital camera. Currently I have a 512 MB card. Went online and found that now I can buy 2GB for $13. I paid $20 for the 512 MB card a little over a year ago. Amazes me how quick the prices for memory drops.

There is an article in the New York Times called As China Roars, Pollution Reaches Deadly Extremes When I was in China the air pollution was very noticeable. I was in Beijing in the winter and in the evening when everyone in the city started to fire up their coal burning stoves the air got noticeable thicker. During the day the air quality was bad but at night it got even worse. Here is a nasty detail but shows how bad the air was.

After more than two years of public tumult, the University of Colorado Board of Regents voted Tuesday to fire a professor whose remarks about the victims of the Sept. 11 attacks led to a national debate on free speech. But it was the professor's problems with scholarship that the board cited as the cause for his termination.
The professor, Ward L. Churchill, was dismissed on the ground that he had committed academic misconduct by plagiarizing and falsifying parts of his scholarly research.Story continued here.

Read an article in the New York Times from 1981 that was about Carl Sagan's first novel "Contact". In the article there is this line, "The movie rights to "Contact," scheduled for publication in the fall of next year, have been purchased by Polygram Pictures. Mr. Meredith said the movie was tentatively budgeted at $40 million and was scheduled for release at Christmas 1983."
The movie did come out, but not in 1983. The movie came out in 1997.
