DAN: Photoshop may set the standard when it comes to editing and manipulating images, but its $600 price tag has been known to scare off more than one potential graphics designer. Today Roger demonstrates a great free alternative, the GIMP. GIMP stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program and it has many of the features Photoshop users have become accustomed to: the ability to create layers, add filters, feather, add text, and animate. You'll also recognize the familiar floating palette that gives you easy access to a standard set of graphics tools.

But while quietly enjoying some chamber music one evening in August, Crandall's polite nodding protocol was rudely shattered.
Crandall was boldly approached by another iPod user, a 30ish woman bopping enthusiastically to some high-energy tune.
"She walked right up to me and got within my comfort field," Crandall stammered. "I was taken aback. She pulled out the earbuds on her iPod and indicated the jack with her eyes." Warily unplugging his own earbuds, Crandall gingerly plugged them into the woman's iPod, and was greeted by a rush of techno...

Fluorescent zebra fish were specially bred to help detect environmental pollutants. By adding a natural fluorescence gene to the fish, scientists are able to quickly and easily determine when our waterways are contaminated. The first step in developing these pollution detecting fish was to create fish that would be fluorescent all the time. It was only recently that scientists realized the public's interest in sharing the benefits of this research. We call this the GloFish? fluorescent fish.

Whale species is new to science

BBC: A previously unidentified species of whale has been recorded by researchers.
The creature is a close cousin of the blue whale and has been given the formal scientific name Balaenoptera omurai, reports the journal Nature.
Its Japanese discoverers say the 12-metre-long animal's DNA and anatomical features mark it apart from other whales that use combs to trap food.
Commentators believe the new finding may complicate the debate over whether commercial whaling should be resumed.
It was likely to delay any return to the regular harpooning of certain whale species, they told the BBC.

America's proper role in promoting democracy and freedom in the world was a big issue in the 2000 presidential election. One of the candidates was a Wilsonian idealist, arguing that the prestige and even the military strength of the United States should be used to remake other governments in our image. The other candidate was contemptuous of this woolly-minded notion, saying American blood and treasure should be spent only in humanitarian emergencies or to protect our own narrowly defined self-interest.

Canada's Chretien Confesses Italian Rooftop Prank

TORONTO (Reuters) - And now we know what at least one of the world's leaders has done when his guards aren't looking. Feeling shackled by the Canadian Mounties and Italian carabinieri who were protecting him ahead of a 2001 G8 summit in northern Italy, Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chretien and his grandson scampered across rooftops to get free. "My grandson said, 'Grandpapa, let's escape.' So we managed to escape ... and it was quite a thrill. You know, we jumped from one roof to the other roof to a third roof," Chretien said with a boyish chuckle in remarks broadcast on CBC radio on Thursday.

I got this email from a freind of mine

When an iranian writes in english ...
This letter was written by an employee of the NIOC (National Iranian Oil Company) back in the 1960`s to his American boss, Mr.Hamilton.

Dear Mr.Hamilton
I, the undersigned, have worked in the NIOC in Masjed-Solyeman for three years, But since Mr.Ahmadi transferred here everything has changed.

I don't know "what a wet wood I have sold him" that from the very first day he has been "pulling the belt to my lift" With all kinds of "cat dancing" he has tried to become the "eye and the light" of Mr.Wilson.

He made so much "mouse running" that finally Mr.Wilson "became donkey", and appointed Mr.Ahmadi as his right hand man, and told me to work "under his hand" Mr.Wilson promised me that next year he would make me his right hand man, but "my eye didn't not drink water", and I knew that all these were "hat play", and he was trying to put a "hat on my head" I "put the seal of silence to my lips" and did not say anything.

Since that he was just "putting watermelon under my arms" Knowing that this transfer was only "good for his aunt", I started begging him to forget that I ever came to see him and forget my visit altogether.

I said "you saw camel, you did not see camel"....but he was not "getting of the devils donkey"..."what headache shall I give you" I am now forced to work in the mail house with bunch of "blind, bald, height and half height"
people. "Imagine how much my ass burns"

Now Mr.Hamilton, "I turn around your head" you are my only hope and my "back and shelter"...."I swear you to the 14 innocents" please "do some work for me"...."in the resurrection day I`ll grasp your skirt"...."I have six head bread eaters".....I kiss your hand and legs"

Matrix revolution

Man, this movie was great. It was full of action and everything in one. The action scenes were great it was better then the first one and the second one both together.

It's sad that there won't be any other movies on matrix, it was a great journey with Neo through out this trilogy. I read the reviews before I went to the see the movie and it wasn't what I was thinking of the movie maybe the critics haven't saw the first two matrix movies! But overall it was great. By the way I didn't see this on Imax but I have to try it on that too.

Simpsons fan grows 'tomacco'

The simpsons Channel-Tomacco Becomes A Reality!

Rob Baur, a huge Simpsons fan, grafted a tomato plant to a tobacco plant, grew it, and tonight he has proof from the lab that it worked. "What we found was nicotine in the leaves". said scientist Ray Grimsbo. The plant grew off the tobacco roots and sucked up the nicotine, just like Tomacco on The Simpsons. The lab hasn't tested if the actual tomato has nicotine in it yet, but they say it probably does. "Generally in the fruit there is more material concentrated because that's what everything's going through to produce the fruit for the next generation. I would expect there would be more." And that would make the real life tomacco plant very poisonous. Rob Baur says he grew the tomacco plant just for fun, just to see if it would really work. But what's next for him? "I'll have to review my DVD's to see if there is more Simpsons science available."
