Dead Zones - Causes and Consequences
Found by way of this article series
where I read:
"Ask scientists, government types, fishermen, almost anyone about the low-oxygen zone coming off the mouth of the Mississippi River and one question spills from their lips.
"Have you talked to Nancy Rabalais?" ... marine ecologist Rabalais has led the search for answers to the 8,500-square-mile zone and the charge to find a solution. "
From the first linked page, you can view eight video clips -- each about 9.5 minutes long -- of a February 2005 slide lecture. She's awesome.

Strict environmental rules have reduced air pollution levels to below life-threatening levels, and produced this great headline too.

This Salon article on the state of web sites aimed at women
asks some interesting questions. Women-centric sites set out in 1997 and 1998 to start a revolution, and instead we have relationship quizzes, diet plans, TV reviews, and horoscopes. What went wrong? Are women really
interested in these things? Did the sites start out edgy and adapt to the audience? Would anyone expect online magazine/lifestyle properties to be much different than their offline counterparts? I also wonder what anyone that has ever seen and/or used iVilliage
, and Women.com
think of each site's content? Is it enlightening, or pure fluff?

I was astounded, but maybe I'm just naive. According
Beyond 2000 article
, low oxygen content in aircraft cabins,
which contributes to the majority of air travel woes, is mostly
due to penny-pinching. Great, skimping on air! What's next? ...
umm ... ahhh ... Oh gee, I have nothing worse to compare it to!
