Huh?! Iraqi Homeowner To Wait A While Before Re-Shingling Roof BAR-ENDER
Posted by on Thursday, February 27, 2003
BAGHDAD—Homeowner Aftab Shamoun, 34, announced Monday that he will likely wait "just a little while" before moving ahead with plans to re-shingle the roof of his Baghdad home. "Now may not be the best time to put on those nice new ceramic shingles," said Shamoun, whose roof was damaged in a wind storm last November. "Heck, I've been putting it off for so long, a few more months won't hurt." Despite putting the shingling project on the back burner, Shamoun said he plans to spend next weekend insulating his front windows with energy-efficient plywood boards.

Internet Government Tells Vigilantes Their 'Help' Isn't Necessary BAR-ENDER
Posted by on Tuesday, February 25, 2003
Goverment officials have warned for some time that pro-Iraqi hackers might take aim at computers in the United States as international tensions rise. But now officials are also trying to discourage Americans who might be tempted to mount attacks on the computers and Web sites of Saddam Hussein's supporters.
The National Infrastructure Protection Center at the Federal Bureau of Investigation issued an advisory last week warning that hacking activity on both sides was likely to increase as the United States put more pressure on Iraq. It noted that all hacking is illegal and said the United States government "does not condone so-called 'patriotic hacking' on its behalf."...

Why Nerds are Unpopular?! BAR-ENDER
Posted by on Thursday, February 20, 2003
"Why Nerds are Unpopular" is an essay by Paul Graham that looks at how being smarter than the average bear -- usually an advantage in "the real world" -- is a liability in the Lord of the Flies world of adolescence. It's a long read, but an engaging writeup of the high school pecking order, how the school structure encourages this behaviour, the freak/geek alliance and gives some hope to the current crop of high school nerds (my fellow dweebs, it does get better). Even though high school is something like twenty years in my past, I still winced when I read the essay. Were you one of the high school geeks? Are you one now?

Georgia "A Promise is a Promise"...This Time Anyway BAR-ENDER
Posted by on Thursday, February 20, 2003
Talking loud, voting on nothing. Georgia's new governor is following through on his campaign promise to "let the people speak" regarding the design of our state flag. The flag was last redesigned in 2001 to put to rest a substantial amount of controversy revolving around the inclusion of a confederate battle flag.
This opportunity to voice an opinion will be offered to the populace next spring in the form of a non-binding referendum. and while the results will not result in an official decision either way, the mayor of Atlanta has said she will take a strong stance in the matter by "purposely not [voting] either way on the ballot questions."

Is doing nothing an effective means of protest? Sounds more like a kid on a playground declaring themselves "Switzerland" in the middle of a fight. Courtesy of mf...

Huh?! Is that A Blot I see before me? BAR-ENDER
Posted by on Tuesday, February 18, 2003
Actually, no. At least not a Rorschach blot... "Most people have heard of the Rorschach test (pronounced "raw-shock"), but few have ever seen a real Rorschach inkblot. The blots are kept secret. When you see an inkblot in a popular article on the test, it's a fake: it's an inkblot, but not one of the inkblots. There are only ten Rorschach inkblots." Viewing the information on this page will compromise administration of the Rorschach test, invalidating your answers, so if you want to take the test in the future, don't peek. The site creators, however, recommend that you don't take the controversial test, and provide an outline (literally) of the blots, including information regarding scoring, analysis, and expected or "normal" answers, as well as some "red-flag" responses. In other words, a Rorschach cheat-sheet.

Georgia DNR Hunting Safety Instructor Shoots off own Fingers BAR-ENDER
Posted by on Tuesday, February 18, 2003
A hunting safety instructor for the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) who teaches kids the do’s and dont’s of gun safety lost a finger when he accidently shot himself in the hand while trying to clean his gun. What an ironic illustration of the age-old idiom, “Do as I say and not as I do.” According to Corporal Danny Bishop of DNR, the incident occurred on December 5 during a hunting trip in Terrell County. “He (the safety instructor) was trying to clean an obstruction from the barrel of his hunting rifle,” said Bishop. “When I later inspected the rifle, I found that the safety was in the off position and there was a shell in the chamber. The gun was loaded. It was an unfortunate accident,” said Bishop. The gunshot severed two of the man’s fingers on his left hand. Friends drove the injured man to Mark’s Melon Patch in Terrell County at about 7:30 a.m. Once there, they called 911. Phoebe surgeons were able to reattach one finger by combining parts from both severed digits to form a single finger. The gunshot was said to be so hot that it cauterized the wound. “The wound didn’t bleed at all,” said a witness. In order to receive a hunting license, children under the age of 16 must enroll in a hunter safety course approved by the DNR. The course is taught by volunteers. Volunteers are experienced hunters who have completed DNR gun safety training. According to the DNR website, there are an average of 73 hunting accidents and eight fatalities in Georgia each year since 1979. Tree-stand accidents and accidents resulting in self-inflicted injuries account for 72 % of the total accidents. Hunters who shoot other hunters account for 38% of hunting accidents. The DNR website claims that none of these accidents have involved a person who was not hunting. According to U.S. National Safety Council, hunting, they say, is safer than playing golf. ...

Huh?! Internet Panhandling on the Rise BAR-ENDER
Posted by on Tuesday, February 11, 2003
It started with SaveKaryn.com. Now a growing number of people facing mountains of debt are taking their pleas for cash to the Web.They make their pleas for help on the Internet. Some are struggling single moms or recent college graduates loaded down with student loans and maxed-out credit cards. Others are childless couples seeking treatment for infertility. One site even makes a pitch for a cat named Buster.
The tales of woe vary. But the request is the same: They want people to send money by way of homepages that are becoming an online cottage industry. Skeptical Internet experts have even coined a term for the trend; they call it "cyberbegging."

Science Smallpox Protection Project BAR-ENDER
Posted by on Thursday, February 06, 2003
Oxford University is looking to take advantage of distributed computing to find a cure for smallpox. Much like [email protected], the Smallpox Protection Project and Oxford's effort to cure cancer rely on individual computer users to download and run screensaver software to crunch numbers in an effort to speed up processing of large amounts of data. How will this kind of initiative impact science in the future? Can we, by volunteering our processors, be part of the quest for a cure?

Space 7 Aboard Die in Shuttle Breakup BAR-ENDER
Posted by on Thursday, January 30, 2003
Space shuttle Columbia disintegrated 39 miles over Texas on Saturday in a meteoric streak that rained smoking debris over hundreds of miles of countryside in at least two states. All seven astronauts were lost, a tragedy that echoed the Challenger explosion almost exactly 17 years earlier.
The catastrophe occurred in the last 16 minutes of the 16-day mission, as the craft glided in for a landing in Florida.
"The Columbia is lost," said President Bush, after he telephoned the families of the astronauts to console them.
"The same creator who names the stars also knows the names of the seven souls we mourn today," Bush said, his eyes glistening. "The crew of the shuttle Columbia did not return safely to Earth but we can pray they are safely home."...

Please take a moment in prayer to remember the brave astronauts who lost their lives on Saturday, February the 1st, 2003 onboard the space shuttle Columbia.



"May God bless the grieving families, and may God continue to bless America." (President George W. Bush)



As we mourn the seven brave lives that were lost, let us all remember the people they were and the families they left behind.

May the memory of their lives bring joy and hope to all, and may they find peace in the Heavens.
