(030107) Cliff Yablonski Hates You
http://www.somethingawful.com/cliff/ihateyou/

Cliff Yablonski
Something Awful Inc.
Seattle, Washington, USA

Cliff Yablonski hates me. Cliff Yablonski hates you. Cliff Yablonski hates just about everybody and isn't afraid to let the world know. Cliff Yablonski swears a lot and Cliff Yablonski is often mean. Cliff Yablonski is mean mostly to people in photographs, the same sort of being mean that passes for funny in certain circles. Cliff Yablonski is bitter, was in the US Navy during the war with Yemen, and is fond of beating the crap out of certain residents in and around Appleton City. Cliff Yablonski Hates You contains mature language galore, pictures people have sent in of themselves and examples of Cliff Yablonski's really bad attitude. Happy New Year! (Back to top of page)


(030121) Solar Mission
EnviroMission Limited
http://www.enviromission.com.au/

EnviroMission Limited
Armadale, Victoria, Australia

Currently under way, the Solar Mission project from Australia's EnviroMission Limited will ultimately construct the first large-scale solar thermal power station. Output of the solar plant should be enough to power 200,000 homes. This site, suggested by Reddog, takes a look at the Solar Mission project. An estimated 35,000,000 Australian Dollars have been spent on the Solar Mission project for research and development to date. Not practical everywhere, there are certainly enough suitable locations around the world for Solar Towers. Perhaps if we are ever going to break our dependency on fossil fuels we should start demanding alternatives along these lines. (Back to top of page)


(030128) Travel USA Travel - USA Tourist
http://www.usatourist.com/

USATourist
McMurray, Pennsylvania, USA

Whether it's a trip to The Big Apple or The Big Easy, off-season touring in the United States has gained popularity with visitors from other lands during recent years. The strength of the US Dollar has prohibited a lot of people from making the trip, but that trend seems to have reversed. For those planning a trip to the US, deciding what to see can be a major source of frustration. Travel USA Travel - USA Tourist offers a solution with basic overviews of different locations. Local customs and Pioneer Days are explored with pointers a plenty to related sites. Travel USA Travel - USA Tourist might even be inspirational to residents of the US. From sea to shining sea. (Back to top of page)


(030207) Shuttle Press Kit
http://www.shuttlepresskit.com

NASA, United Space Alliance and The Boeing Company
Houston, Texas, USA

The loss of the Space Shuttle Columbia has a great deal of attention pointed in the direction of the space program. The space program hasn't just come back in to being, the reason people are interested is because yet another NASA craft has been lost during the landing stage — think Mars a few years back. Without sounding callus or cruel about the loss of lives and an expensive space ship — this is hard stuff, this outer space business. An accident every now and then, while unfortunate is one of the overall risks associated with the shooting match.

There used to be a time when the media would cover every shuttle launch, probably because of the adventure associated with the majesty of the launch and the science on display. The International Space Station renewed interest for a while, but finding a concise source of mission information has been a chore as of late. Shuttle Press Kit to the rescue for those who are looking for better information directly from the source. This isn't a "news and new information every day about the Space Shuttle" site. It is however a clearinghouse for official press releases and mission information for people interested in the purpose and particulars of specific missions. Not limited to the Space Shuttle, the International Space Station is represented along with a couple of other surprises. A joint effort from NASA, United Space Alliance and The Boeing Company, Shuttle Press Kit does not cover every shuttle mission flown, just the last dozen or so and a few future projects.

For fresher news, NASA press releases and other information are available automatically by sending an Internet electronic mail message to domo@hq.nasa.gov. In the body of the message (not the subject line) users should type the words "subscribe press-release" (no quotes). The system will reply with a confirmation via E-mail of each subscription. A second automatic message will include additional information on the service. NASA releases also are available via CompuServe using the command GO NASA.

Go NASA, indeed. (Back to top of page)
