15) Primer - Getting ino the semantic web and RDF using N3: The world of the semantic web, as based on RDF, is really simple at
the base. This article shows you how to get started. It uses a
simplified teaching language -- Notation 3 or N3 -- which is
basically equivalent to RDF in its XML syntax, but easier to scribble
when getting started.
16) Life On The Internet: Could Blogging Assist KM?: But what if the two – blogging and KM – got together? That is, what if we took the technology that allows Bloggers to quickly annotate their journeys through the web with information about the whys and wherefores with a KM system that allowed their organizational colleagues to use the weblogs as a source of expertise? Consider:
-- If experts could use blogging software that was part of their normal work environment, probably part of their browser, to note and annotate web sites they wanted to share as part of their area of expertise (note the expert decides what to share, avoiding privacy problems);
21) BBC SPORT | WORLD ATHLETICS | Edmonton : Black and gold, new to old: A great article about some of the attractions in Edmonton.

Those who came to watch seemed to agree.
"It raises these kinds of questions about what are the limits of ethics and what are the limits of art. It raises questions about our relationship to animal life," said Chris Boland of Detroit, who is studying in Berlin for the summer. "That's what art is supposed to do."
Angela Rosenthal of Berlin, another onlooker, said she had no right to criticize the performance because she eats meat and uses cosmetics that are sometimes tested on animals.
"What is art? I don't know," she said.
24) www.oreilly.com -- In Memory of Frank Willison: Of all of us at O'Reilly, Frank is the one we'd most have imagined
growing old and grandfatherly, dispensing to successive generations
the wisdom, humor and caring that he shared with all of us. He is (I
use the present tense deliberately) one of those people who is an
inspiration to us all, someone who demonstrates convincingly how to
be a wonderful human being.

26) Fluency - Foreign Language Learning - What is fluency?: One of the questions* that I get asked all the time is How long will
it take me to speak French fluently? Unfortunately, the answer to
this question is difficult for several reasons:
There's no universal definition of fluency
Every person has a different language-learning potential
It depends a great deal on where and how one studies
* Wondering what the other questions are? Read my FAQ.
This article is an attempt to provide you with some information about
these issues - the what, when, where, and how of fluency - so that
you can determine your own "fluency potential." :-)

29) THE MERCK MANUAL--Home Edition, Sec. 4, Ch. 38, Occupational Lung Diseases: Occupational lung diseases are caused by harmful particles, mists,
vapors, or gases inhaled while a person works. Where in the airways
or lungs an inhaled substance ends up and what type of lung disease
develops depend on the size and kind of particles inhaled. Larger
particles may get trapped in the nose or large airways, but the
smallest ones reach the lungs. There, some particles dissolve and may
be absorbed into the bloodstream; most solid particles that don't
dissolve are removed by the body's defenses.

31) Log on to Premji\'s 10-point success mantra: WIPRO chairman Azim H Premji, one of India's most successful entrepreneurs, on Friday prescribed a 10-point recipe for success, based on the lessons he had learnt during his last 35 years in the organisation.
"What saddens me most is to see young, bright people getting disillusioned by a few initial setbacks and slowly turning cynical and some of them want to migrate to America in the hope this is the solution," he said adding, it required courage to keep dreaming.
Stressing on the importance of "dreams", Premji said they were most needed not when everything was going right, but when everything was going wrong.
"Being the best in the country is not enough: one has to be the best in the
world," he said, adding that excellence was a moving target and one had to
constantly raise the bar.
32) Beaches of Germany - for travelers to Germany: Hitting the beach in Germany generally means heading for the North
Sea or Ostsee coasts. On warm summer days, Germany's beaches are a

bracing sea. Whether your desires are a beach for children and family
to play on, a place to be with adults, or a nude beach, Germany has
them all. Here are some popular places to visit:

c Semper Tyrannis >>> Thus ever to tyrants. The motto of the State of Virginia. John Wilkes Booth is supposed to have shouted this phrase as he jumped to stage of Ford's Theater after shooting Abraham Lincoln.
Appa : all management gurus throughout the world say the
word 'manager' is misnomer. Current society, at least in developed
countries, is a networked society. They can manage themselves. They
want only a leader. (As Abraham Lincoln said a leader is only a
primus inter pares). Also remember that he who knows and knows that
he knows alone is the leader.
35) The Internet Classics Archive | The Meditations by Marcus Aurelius: From my grandfather Verus I learned good morals and the government of my temper.
From the reputation and remembrance of my father, modesty and a manly character.
From my mother, piety and beneficence, and abstinence, not only from evil deeds, but even from evil thoughts; and further, simplicity in my way of living, far removed from the habits of the rich.
From my great-grandfather, not to have frequented public schools, and
to have had good teachers at home, and to know that on such things a
man should spend liberally.
36) good performances this season: One of your reporters met me the other day in Hamsadhwani, asking for
my opinion about the good performances this season. My wife & I will
easily rate T N Krishnan's violin recital as the best, of what we
enjoyed. Among others,Prince Rama Varma came up with a very good
performance.We heard him for the first time.Earlier, Vasundhara
Rajagopalan sang extremely well, the memory of which lingers on.The
only other names that come to my mind are that of Aruna Sairam,
Madurai G S Mani & T M Krishna.Well, Have a good day. Brig

nominating State Party, is current as of December 2000. The list will
be updated following the next meeting of the Committee in December
41) Observing Without the \"Me\", Krishnamurti, Brockwood Park, 9/5/70: It is always difficult to keep simple and clear. The world worships success, the bigger the better; the greater the audience the greater the speaker; the colossal super buildings, cars, aeroplanes and people. Simplicity is lost. The successful people are not the ones who are building a new world. To be a real revolutionary requires a complete change of heart and mind, and how few want to free themselves. One cuts the surface roots; but to cut the deep feeding roots of mediocrity, success, needs something more than words, methods, compulsions. There seem to be few, but they are the real builders--the rest labor in vain.

our heart. Our heart possesses a superior knowledge of how to keep us
inspired. Your heart will lead you to the places where you feel most
alive, and become your best.
46) Book recommendations for potential writers?: Reading New Yorker magazine every week is probably more than enough
if you want to keep up with what is good modern writing. Personally,
I prefer Edith Wharton and her generation, but that's not a style
that is likely to get one published in any modern magazine.
