Breast Cancer Cure?
Topic: Health and Wellness 6:53 am EDT, Sep  1, 2004

Researchers from Canada believe they have identified the gene responsible for breast cancer tumor growth, a discovery that could possibly lead to a cure for the disease.

When the gene was removed from the mice, breast development was not affected, however, when the gene was removed from already growing tumors, the tumors ceased to grow.

This is awesome news! I hope this research works out the way they expect.

Multiple Intelligence Test

This is the adult version of a test we give children in school to figure out how they learn best thus telling us how to be more effective teachers. So if you are interested take the test and see what it has to say about your learning style. This is all based on Gardner and his theory of multiple intellegences. (he recently added 1 that deals with technology)

Canadians Join Protests
Topic: Current Events 10:09 am EDT, Aug 30, 2004

The people lined up against the wall of the customs building range in age between 17 and 58. They're students, teachers, professionals, Indians, Asians, white, black, people in Birkenstocks and people in button-down shirts and khakis.

Siraha Saeowala, 40, of Toronto, said he came for his children, who ask him nightly why airplanes are bombing cities in Iraq, and what happens to the children whose parents are killed in the war.

Their chants "War resisters welcome here," and "Opposing Bush ain't no crime, we'll take you in Canada anytime," draw mostly smiling faces

141 people came from Canada to help with the protest and make their feelings known.

The Silver Comet Trail
Topic: Recreation 10:41 pm EDT, Aug 29, 2004

Imagine gliding along on your bike through the north Georgia countryside, crossing a 500-foot-long trestle over a rushing river below, winding between rock cliffs and weaving among tall stately pines. Imagine doing this without having to worry about cars and trucks. Now imagine doing this for 60 miles on one trail!
No, that's not a dream, it's the Silver Comet Trail.

The trail is amazing. It is not a difficult ride and it has beautiful scenery. So if you are looking for somewhere to get a workout without having to worry about traffic this is an viable option.

Exactly! How do they expect the american public to take an election seriously if they won't themselves. Honestly there are so many HUGE issues that we should be addressing at this very moment in time but we are still stuck on this shit. This is the exact reason why no one votes. The majority of the american public has yet to hear a good reason why they should interupt their lives, take of work and waste thier precious time to drag themselves down to the poll to vote for who the best bully is.

"Yellow wakes me up in the morning.
Yellow gets me on the bike every day.
Yellow has taught me the true meaning of sacrifice.
Yellow makes me suffer.

I am glad that these have gotten so much support and attention because it is a really important message. But on the flip side I hope other people remember the meaning and not just that it's the cool thing to do right now.

Truly decentralised peer-to-peer (P2P) software can't be held accountable for its misuse, according to a US federal appeals court.

US Circuit Court in Los Angeles, threw a major brick in the path of entertainment companies which have been trying to have the courts shut down companies running the P2P networks.

"From the advent of the player piano, every new means of
reproducing sound has struck a dissonant chord with musical
copyright owners, often resulting in federal litigation. This
appeal is the latest reprise of that recurring conflict, and one
of a continuing series of lawsuits between the recording
industry and distributors of file-sharing computer software."

"[W]e live in a quicksilver technological
environment with courts ill-suited to fix the flow of
internet innovation....The introduction of new technology is always disruptive to old markets and particularly to those copyright owners whose works are sold through well-established distribution mechanisms," the court wrote.
