March 2013 Update:  “With the recent ending of the World Data Center system and their subsequent incorporation into the ICSU World Data System, NSSDC has suspended the publication of the monthly SPACEWARN Bulletin. Consequently issue 692 (July 2011) of the bulletin was the last one to be published. All past electronically accessible issues will continue to be available through the NSSDC, but no new issues will be forthcoming.  NSSDC will continue to support documenting spacecraft launches, especially those of interest to the science community. The information from SPACEWARN has always been placed in the NSSDC Master Catalog (NMC). Spacecraft from any given month will continue to be inserted and updated as information becomes available and (with the NMC interface) users can generate monthly listings of spacecraft information or create other queries.  NSSDC thanks the SPACEWARN community for their interest and support over the past decades. We hope that our continuing services are also valuable to you. “   }here there are 15 video feeds from NASA; some live and some streaming. Recommended.

Repower and rebuild America.   }”global warming” and “climategate”. “Dr. Bruce West, with the Army Research Office, argues that “changes in the earth’s average surface temperature are directly linked to … the short-term statistical fluctuations in the Sun’s irradiance and the longer-term solar cycles.”” He argues that climate change is not man-made.

III. Tools: (see also JKU Research List and Online Tools 2013 )    }engines for searching “the invisible web”. Note: This site is difficult to use and you may have to use a

search engine to find what you want in it – !  2011 Update: their “InvisibleWeb link is down now. There is no replacement but this page is helpful:   }Has good advice and good links, but we don’t agree with their frequent advice there to use Google searches, since so many better ways to find academic papers and such exist. 2012 Update: We did find a stored copy of the Invisible Web page here   }using the Wayback Machine. Some but not all of the original pages linked to are there.    }uses 15 UK search engines. 2011 Update: Curryguide is still there, but there have been some changes; e.g., its “mp3 search” doesn’t really work anymore. Its “clustering search” feature redirects you to   }and from there, enter the name of the artist you want, then click on “music” in the clustering menu, and you’ll see the mp3 download options. It seems as good as Yippy for that.      }here are the ones from the other countries.    }another guide. 2011 DL We recommend or  as replacements for this.   }one of the author’s favorite metasearchengines. 2011 Update: We recommend their Powersearch, all-in-one option for this.

1. What are Mr. Kamel’s favorite works by Walter/Wendy Carlos?

A: (1) Walter: Sonic Seasonings, and the (Limited Edition) LP release of

A Clockwork Orange, with the extended “Timesteps” recording.

(2) Wendy: The Beauty In The Beast.

2. Why is this edition of JKU red, white, and blue?

A: It is the Special Independence Day Edition of JKU.

3. Why are so many of the online translators broken?

A: We don’t know the real answer to this question, but speculate that

the people involved with them are either incredibly stupid, extremely

lazy, or both; that is, the usual reasons. Otherwise: Bit rot. 2011 Update: Many of the translators have been changed or repaired since this List was first written.

4. What are DLs?

A: Those would be, Dead Links.

5. What is “Found Art”?

A: This refers to “art” items or objects that are literally found, just where they are. In the case of the films, these clips and snippets were literally found all over Hollywood, Ca., for example, in gutters, dumpsters, on sidewalks, etc., and then put together  into films.

6. What is the purpose of “The Daily Awareness URLs” ?

A: These are the websites that contain the information that you need to be aware of

and think about, every single day.

7. So, what are we supposed to do with the “Global Warming Checklist”?

A: Use the checklist like this: visit each of the websites listed, and then read what

they have to say. “Both” “sides” of the issue are presented, along with much of the

pertinent background material. Be sure to go ahead and look at all the sites.

8. What is Mr. Kamel’s favorite Suzanne Vega tune?

A: Probably, Small Blue Thing; but then, it’s hard to pick just one when you love someone.
