Loading up on goodies:
....Before I leave on (yet another) vacation. I promise this is the last this year. Should be back around the 1st of Nov, I don't think I'll be getting any Net access where I'm the cold!

  • If you have to do any more research on the terrible Terri Schiavo story, Florida Blog is collecting links to lots of Schiavo editorials and commentary. This story reinforces the need for everyone to have some sort of advance directive. Two good resources: Aging With Dignity Tallahassee-based organization offers help and "5 wishes" form. This site also has news articles, columns, etc. A copy of the 5 Wishes document is also on the Learning Place.
  • Just in case for some, strange reason you don't read ResourceShelf: Links for upcoming news events: nice compilation from Gary Price.
  • PR Newswire press releases by category, from LA Times. (If this link doesn't work, go to LA Times business page, click on 'press releases' in left-hand column.
  • American Factfinder, from Census, has been redesigned. This is the place to go for finding community profiles from 2000 and 1990 censuses. It's also easier to use: click on Fact Sheet to get a national profile. Change the geography to get a smaller area. (enter address and ZIP, or city and state.) You'll get a general profile; click on 'show more' under a section to get the full Census report on that area. Detail available for city or ZIP code. Also click for maps or click on 'brief' to get the Census brief on that aspect of population. Lots more information available from main FactFinder page, too.
  • Reporting on Religion: nice list of resources compiled by Poynter's David Shedden.
  • Trade Stat Express new site from U.S. Commerce Dept with export-import trade stats (national and state).
  • UK Land Register search property records. Covers England and Wales.
  • Tattoo Artist Database: well, you never know when you'll need it....
  • And, I've added more links to the Herald blog.
    See you next week!
