    yesterday, a friend who works in an IT department described an interesting action by gmail. i had another friend test and confirm the action. those of you who are on gmail, check this out. create a new mail. in subject, put 'here it is'. in body of message, put 'see attachment'. don't attach anything. hit send. instead of sending the message, gmail will pop up a window saying: 'Do you mean to attach files? You wrote "see attachment" in your message, but there are no files attached. Send anyway?'

Lois Kamenitz, 65, of Toronto contacted the office last fall, after U.S. customs officials at Pearson International Airport prevented her from boarding a flight to Los Angeles on the basis of her suicide attempt four years earlier

    Senior administration officials say that Faisal Shahzad was put on the no fly list on Monday at 12:30 pm ET. So how was he able to board the Emirates Airlines flight to Dubai? “It takes a few hours for the airlines system to catch up,” a senior administration official tells ABC news. Another senior administration official adds that Emirates refreshes their system to update with US intelligence information periodically – but not frequently. In any case, the first official says that airlines were “within minutes” of Shahzad being put on the no-fly list told to “look at a web-board” and...

    this is a true story. recently purchased a used car from a local guy. he had purchased from someone in Calif. he hadn't registered locally. there are several emails before this one describing the hell that Calif is putting him through. this is only the latest. ================================= So, I called the CA DMV 800 number. After getting through to them, they said the system didn’t show that the duplicate title request had been processed. On the bright side, I asked if there were any reason that this duplicate title would be declined, and s/he said everything was fine with the...

    DURHAM, N.C. - A Duke University professor resigned from her committee assignments, saying she was upset by the administration's decision to invite two lacrosse players accused of sexual assault back to campus. "The decision by the university to readmit the students, especially just before a critical judicial decision on the case, is a clear use of corporate power, and a breach, I think, of ethical citizenship," Karla Holloway, an English professor and former dean of Humanities and Social Sciences, wrote to Duke's black faculty caucus. "Despite our judgments about the prosecutor's own lack of principled conduct, it is not ours...
