The longest solar eclipse of the century - The Big Picture - Boston.com:
"Earlier today, the moon passed directly in front of the sun, causing a total solar eclipse that crossed nearly half the Earth - through Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Myanmar and China. Today's was the longest total solar eclipse of the 21st century, lasting as much as 6 minutes and 39 seconds in a few areas. Despite cloudy skies in many of the populated areas in the path, millions of people gathered outside to gaze up and view this rare event. Collected here are a few images of the eclipse, and those people who came out to watch. (33 photos total)"
Client Issue: 'Has ANY person in your company ever Looked at or tryed to READ any maniual man u all something like thet that it's funney even after 7 years I still LAUGH any way some people like Ta know I mean Ya know!'
Problem Point: We failed to provide the client with a version of their manual in garbled, unpunctuated non-english.
Improvement Goal: Many companies miss the garbled, unpunctuated non-english market segment completely, and we should not be one of them. It's important to remember that for every client that understands 'Click the 'submit' button to save your changes', there's another that only understands 'klik tHe summit butt on two SAVE yer changez ya know ya know'."

Expert Confirms Authenticity Of Vinland Map
Posted on: Saturday, 18 July 2009, 07:15 CDT
A Danish expert said on Friday that a 15th century Vinland Map, the first known map depicting part of America prior to Christopher Columbus’ arrival on the continent, is almost certainly authentic.
The map has been surrounded by controversy since its discovery in 1950, with many scholars suspecting it was merely part of a hoax intended to prove that Vikings were the first Europeans to land in North America (a claim confirmed by an archaeological find in 1960).
Doubts about the map remained even after carbon dating was established as a credible way of determining the age of an object.
