Weekend update: Other things found last week:

Hope you all had a great holiday weekend. Obviously, I was too busy to blog at all over the last few days, even to my Herald blog, although I did post links to end-of-year roundups this morning there. I did post some photos, though......
The other links:

  • Saving starts at home, new site from FTC on energy use.
  • 2005 Bankruptcy Act resources from US Courts.
  • Influenza Pandemic Handbook for Journalists from WHO, latest update Dec. 05.
  • Breached Levee map from Times-Picayune, incredible PDF.

  • Lookup area codes and exchange prefixes in a radius, another handy search from Melissa Data.

  • Revenues and Expenditures by Public School Districts: School Year 2002-03
  • Seat Belt Use rising in most states.
  • Preliminary Uniform Crime Reports, Jan-June 2005 from FBI.

  • Poynter's Al Tompkins on how journalism has brought good things from tragedies.
  • Nieman Reports: The Future Is Here, But Do News Media Companies See It?
  • The Fix, new Washington Post politics blog.
  • New News: Jeff Jarvis at BuzzMachine is coming up with some proposals for changing journalism.

    Public Records:
  • Did you know you can get free 411 information by calling 1-800-free411? Snopes says it's true, and you only occasionally get a short ad. You can search on their Website too. Might be worth making the 800 number a speed dial, saving cost of regular 411.
  • Guidestar UK for looking up charities there.

  • SBA Small Business Search Find businesses by geography, type, company name or identifier.

  • Luminous-Lint, wonderful site on history of world photography.
