Making good Mondays is like making coffee -

The week is before us - like the coffee pot - waiting to brew. Making it good is a matter of choice, luck, creativity, patience and acceptance of the outcome.

General News of Interest -- a Digest

Jerry Yang and David Filo, the founders of Yahoo!Image via Wikipedia

What would we do without Yahoo!? I get a lot of my news from Yahoo! News, because it comes up on the opening page of my email site. Pictured on the left are Jerry Yang and David Filo, the founder of this groundbreaking company. Here is your news. Links by my regular contributors (see details below):

"Dog overboard found four months later#," is from Yahoo! News. (4/6/09).

"Shroud Of Turin Was Hidden By Knights Templar: Vatican#," from The Huffington Post (4/5/09).

"Today's Papers - No Strings attached#" was found at Slate Magazine on April 4, 2009.

"America's Lost Decade#," linked from Daily Kos (3/8/09).

"We are programmed to be interrupted*," from The Long Now Blog (2/20/09). Betmo labels this "The 21st Century" To quote:

Wired has a great interview with an author named Maggie Jackson who has written a book about the neurobiological basis of attention and how it is affected by all the “lovely distractions” modern society provides. Distracted: The Erosion of Attention and the Coming Dark Age describes three types of attention - orientation, a general sense of awareness, and executive. Her concern is that our modern technological culture is constantly distracting us - and that we like it.

"Oil in the Sand#," a photographic essay from Time Magazine - "In Canada's Alberta Province, Syncrude is mining black gold hand over fist." Jon introduces it: "Interesting pictures. I found one that states we get more from Canada than Saudi Arabia interesting."

"Modern meat: is your meat safe?: antibiotic debate overview*," from Buzz Flash.
