Gore released a new Justice Department report saying state and federal laws aren't strong enough to deal with online stalking, which is on the rise....
He's pushing tougher penalties that specifically deal with chat room or e-mail harassment.

American Air Lines is canceling 20 percent of it's New Year's Eve flights... it says it has nothing to with Y2K concerns, they're almost done updating computers... They're cutting flights because of slow ticket sales... which may indicate consumers are still uncertain.

Governor Gilmore's commission looking at internet taxes says the big question is not IF online sales should be taxed, but HOW, is it practical... the commission met in New York last week.

Practical or not, internet taxes may not play well for politicians.
A recent Gallup Poll found more than a third of voters surveyed would NOT vote for a candidate who favors taxing internet sales.
Two thirds think internet taxes will slow the growth of online commerce.

Ever wonder "how stuff works"?
Like... how televisions actually receive a color picture... or why CD's do that "rainbow thing".
It's all on a website, appropriately named... howstuffworks-dot-com.
Site creator Marshall Brain (yes its his real name) even tackles that age old "which came first, chicken and egg question."

That's about when Jake Payne started playing the game.
He was born with only half of his right arm, but he doesn't let that slow him down.
In his Spring season, the youngster made his little league all-star team and is playing with an older age group during the fall.
Jake bats right handed and fields lefty. Some may consider his body limited, but his goals and dreams are endless.
