National Hurricane Center's Prediction For the Atlantic in 2011


GirlGeeks - GirlGeeks is an organization that encourages women to pursue and develop careers in technology. The GirlGeeks website states that "technology for communication and community-building are more important than ever...[and] we want to ensure that women...have the freedom, motivation and resources to participate in this new world." Visitors will find that the website is divided up into the categories: "Inner Geek," "Education," "Technology," "Career," and "Business." The "Inner Geek" area has a section called "Inspiring Women" that features women in various technology industries. Visitors can also read about very young women, as young as age 12, who have already had success in these fields. The "Technology" category provides articles about updating one's knowledge and increasing one's skill-set in topical areas like shareware and open source materials, to name just a few.


Pinch of Yum - "Food should be delicious, cooking should be fun, and people should feel good about what they eat. This blog is all about making that happen!" You can search or browse its yummy-looking recipes by category (salads, soup, pasta, Indian, etc.).


EyeWitness to History - Source documents bring history alive. They are snapshots to a reality that is not often captured in text books. For those who lack access to such historical records, this web site accomplishes much the same thing, from the ancient world through World War II.


eatocracy - CNN's awesome food blog. Great reading, great pictures, great info, and great food.


The Internet Review of Books - "Reviewing recent books in the fields of science, social science, history, art, music, current affairs, and fiction with attitude and passion." Up to five detailed reviews appear every week, and the archive extends back to 2007.


Five Questions to Ask Yourself When Shopping for an Reader - From eBOOKNEWSER.


The National Juke Box - Historical recordings from the Library of Congress - Right now it includes 10,000+ recordings made by the Victor Talking Machine Company between 1901 and 1925, with the promise to add more from Victor as well as from Sony and its associated labels. Searchable. You can also browse alphabetically by genre, by playlists (early Tin Pan Alley, the Fox Trot, Sousa's band, etc.), or by composers, performers and lyricists.
