The Tally Ho

Find Your Spot

I was turned on to the site, find your spot. Too many questions, and my spots were predictable. The Atlantic Northeast and Pacific Northwest mixed in with DC, Chicago, and New Orleans. Of those three only Chicago gets my attention. Providence was my #1.

Also, according to MIT students, your computer may one day be powered by spinach.
Why spinach?

In reality, any number of plants could have been used. But the researchers chose spinach because "it is cheap and is easily available from the grocery store," Zhang said.

The spinach was ground up and purified to isolate a protein deep within the spinach cells.

A top layer of glass was coated underneath with a conductive material and a thin layer of gold to aid the chemical reaction. In the middle, the spinach-peptide mixture sits on a soft, organic semiconductor that prevents electrical shorts and protects the protein complexes from a bottom layer of metal.

Um, okay. This article on SEC Investigating Morningstar makes me can't wait for Elliot Spitzer to take over from John Ashcroft.
NEW YORK - Morningstar Inc., the firm that millions of investors rely on to rate the performance of mutual funds, is under investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission for failing to properly correct inaccurate data it published about a mutual fund.

Afterall, while Mr. Ashcroft is 0 for 5000 on convicting terror suspects, Mr. Spitzer has been very busy. Though I shouldn't knock the SEC too much - I was told last Fall that they were just getting the staff to deal with the high volume of cases.
