My name is Jamie VanAllen and I work for Northern Mentors. I found your page (http://ominousweather.com/kinglyheirs/DictionaryMS.html) while teaching a few of my students about internet research. I just wanted to say thank you for providing a page such excellent resources! It was actually one of my students, Lauren, who pointed out to me that, since we used your page so much, we should thank you for it. I suggested that we pass along another good resource for you to include on your page, as a token of our thanks. Here is the article Lauren chose: "The Story of Building and Rebuilding the White House" - http://www.improvenet.com/a/story-of-building-and-rebuilding-white-house I made sure it was a quality resource, and I really do think it would add nicely to the other links on your page about presidents. Please let me know if you do include it on your page, she would be extremely happy to see her suggestion on your page.
Thanks for your time!

It happened without warning. One day, you were happily surfing the net using Firefox; the next day, Bing magically appeared and screwed everything up. If you are a Firefox fan, you probably love it because it immediately takes you where you need to go. Typing all that "www.com" stuff is a thing of the past; type in the names of sites such as Facebook or Postsecret, and Firefox takes you directly there (or takes you to a great list of Google results).

At least it used to.

Recently, some internet users were confused when they discovered that a search engine called Bing had taken over their computer. They couldn't recall installing it, but it was there-and it was ruining their online experience. Gone were the days of doing a search for "Myspace" and being taken directly there; Bing overrode Firefox to provide the internet user with a lame list of Myspace-related sites.

Here is a link on how to BAN BING from your computer.

About J.D. Power and Associates

Top Ten Research Tools

According to CNET

1. Encyclopedia Britannica

In an era of free content, ponying up for expert information still pays off. Britannica's $49 digital encyclopedia draws upon an astute legacy of more than two centuries, offering entries vetted by Nobel Prize winners and ready-made citations for your term papers. This version is faster than its predecessor, and the DVD purchase includes access to Britannica articles online. You weren't really going to cite Wikipedia as the last word in your final project, were you?

2. Wikipedia

You might shun this online, open-source encyclopedia if you've ever been burned by prank entries or fudged facts. But because anyone can edit Wikipedia, it's a richer resource than Britannica for subjects off the beaten path, such as the 1960s underground press or rivethead subculture. Though it's not the only source you should reference in term papers, at least Wikipedia gets you started.

3. FeedDemon

Many free RSS services let you subscribe to oodles of news sources that so you don't have to hopscotch from site to site to get the scoop. But the $29 FeedDemon 2 is the best RSS reader for steamrolling through thousands of feeds. Need headlines from the science section of the world's major newspapers? Check. Want the latest research from insider blogs about solar power? Check. FeedDemon is faster and more customizable than browser-based freebies, and it also lets you access feeds online.

4. Diigo beta

Diigo beta
How helpful is it to bookmark a Web site if you need only one sentence from that 3,000-word article? Diigo is a free bookmarking service that lets you do what we wish Yahoo's Del.icio.us would: highlight text and comment on Web pages. Diigo caches each site so that you can search within text, not just the topic tags. And you won't have to leave the Del.icio.us community, since Diigo lets you save bookmarks simultaneously in both places.

5. Google Scholar beta

Google Scholar
Google Scholar searches journals in the arts and humanities, business, science, medicine, and mathematics. It turns up abstracts and sometimes full articles that are indispensable for academic and professional research and points to libraries that keep the hard copies. One downside: Scholar doesn't let you subscribe to newsfeeds for your search queries, while rival Windows Live Academic beta does. So far, however, Scholar retrieves more content.

6. Google Book Search

Google Book Search
Google's goal to digitize the world's libraries has hit some copyright snags, but Mountain View continues to sign deals with universities, scan books, and put their pages online. You can read the entire text of books in the public domain or see excerpts from, say, Build Your Own All-Terrain Robot, before committing to buy the hard copy. Props are due to Project Gutenberg, the first major effort to make e-books free.

7. Yahoo Answers

Yahoo Answers
When you're stumped about something, asking a knowledgeable person can cut to the chase better than a Google query. But what if there are no experts on, say, epiphytes in your circle of friends? Pose that question about rare orchids to Yahoo Answers, and you're sure to find a green thumb among the tens of millions of users. Among rival social search sites, we found the widest array of explanations on the broadest range of subjects at Yahoo Answers. However, the site can be cluttered by amateurs, so be patient.

8. Windows Live Local

Windows Live Local
Although Yahoo Maps beta won our Editors' Choice award, Windows Live Local innovates in ways that are ideal for research. You can save locations to your account and even mark up maps with pushpins and by coloring in routes and regions. You could use these features to impress your history teacher, for instance, with a customized map drawing that shows where ancient Native Americans lived in your town. And Local is powered by Redmond's impressive Virtual Earth technology, which makes for some stunning satellite views.

9. Google Earth 4

Google Earth
Google Maps first made satellite views of the planet free on the Web. But the Google Earth download gets you even closer, letting you fly around the globe, zoom in for a closer view, and add your own landmarks with Google SketchUp. If research brings you back to the land, Google Earth is an essential ally. For instance, environmentalists fighting mountaintop removal mining used Google Earth to assemble a virtual tour of the damage done.

10. Google Home

Google Home
Google Home organizes your newsfeeds, site bookmarks, maps, stock quotes, e-books, podcasts, calculators, currency converters, dictionary lookups, language translators, search histories, yellow pages--hold on, we're out of breath. Anyway, you can drag all that onto one simple Google sign-in screen that goes wherever you do, with some advantages over Netvibes and others.

St Johns Freight House

St Johns Freight House

Photo above is of the St Johns Park Freight House. These are from a brochure published by the New York Central in 1934 and re-issued by the West Side Rail Line Development Foundation (author was a former member and supporter of this foundation).

St. John's Park was abandoned when some of the High Line ROW below Bank St. was sold for housing. But had traffic there dried up by then? Was there any debate over it at the time? The line was only about 20 years old at that time. When St. John's was in service, there were about 8 tracks running into it-- how was it switched? And what kind of stuff was shipped to St. John's. Also, the line served Nabisco, Armour--when did they stop using the line? And did the RR serve Bell Labs (now Westbeth) whose building it ran through?

For answers to these questions, click here or on picture aboven for St Johns Freight House or West Side Rail Line Development Foundation.

What is a Social Supply Chain?

Social supply chain is using "social media technology" all across the entire supply chain : from supplier's suppliers to customer's customers. It means integration of social media technologies (collaboration, sharing) to connect and encompass the participants across the whole supply chain.

The customer-facing side of companies is getting busier. Customers use social media to connect with their peers from a marketing standpoint to promote and advertise their services and capabilities. Social media is now particularly important in customer service environments. Consumers are able to communicate with customer service departments through Twitter and Facebook.
