But first, some assorted links and comments

* Carl Zimmer on a recent controversy between science journal publisher Wiley and a blogger who plucked a graph from one of their publications. "For us science writers, there's a huge irony to this episode. Scientific journals like attention. The better-funded ones will go to great lengths to get stories written about their papers... Wiley was, consciously or unconsciously, going out of their way to squash interest in their papers."

* I learned this past weekend that some bars in rural Montana offer to-go cups, mostly, someone explained, to allow patrons to drink while driving.

* FedEx's home page, I was surprised to discover, is remarkably minimalistic. I get that their customers speak many languages from many cultures, but perhaps a tracking code search bar with a well-designed icon would be useful to most site visitors.

* Scottish writer Alasdair Gray, author of Lanark, writes a blog and updates it intermittently, most recently in April. He has been working on a novel, due out later this year, as well as an illustrated autobiography, he says.

* The NY Times Keeping Score column points readers to a site that aims to track the individual turning points of sporting events, like baseball. As the note, fangraphs.com has published something similar on their site.

* Ezra Klein, the whippersnapper, and Mickey Kaus, the fogey, both knock the LA Times today, though for different reasons.

Google is your FedEx box. Just enter your tracking number. See Google Features: FedEx tracking numbers example search: "999999999999"

Thanks for the comment. At the end of the day, though, I imagine FedEx would rather that customers use their site, but they don't even make it possible on the global home site.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of hardship when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
Nowadays, I'm happy and lucky , I started take up real income.
It gets down to select a correct partner who utilizes your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, and shares the income with me.

You can ask, if there are such firms? I have to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:
