From the article, "Among the list of smartifying books (how do you like that vocabulary right there?) is Warcraft: Dragon Hunt, the first volume in the Sunwell Trilogy. All of the books include more than 300 words that frequently show up on the SATs and ACTs."

I tried to explain to two guys I work with that global warming is bad. Naturally this conversation started in reaction to the recent announcement by the IPCC. I first tried to explain it in terms of how it effects the human species. I couldn't find a good example. I tried to explain what's bad about humans causing the extinction of other species and couldn't think of one who's ecosystem would be wiped out and who's extinction would effect us adversely. Then I tried to explain its effects on weather exemplifying its effects on hurricane Katrina, they were incredulous but it was at least solid (the energy in the ocean contributes to the energy in the atmosphere and so on). The arguments I often encounter are "the animals will adapt, as will we." a plausible yet disturbing argument. Can anyone else come up with a good way to explain why we should stop global warming to those less educated about it?

The source is included in CVS for Gtk+ and Pango, see the Build Instructions for more information on getting and building the source. Discussions about further development take place on the Gtk-devel mailing list. If you want to help out with the development, please take a look at the Things to do page for a description of what is left to be done.
The idea is explained at glscubed.org, it stands for GNU/Linux Semantic Storage System (GLSSS), (this would look right if I could use the sub/sup tags). I also think its a better idea (as far as implementation goes) than beagle or Kat, but the best part is, desktop environment independent I can use it on fluxbox. now I just need a graphical front end (or not, works through console too) and a launcher based on it (think quicksilver)
