Re: Public Comment on Section 108: A Statement by the Cornell

Copyright Law (Sect 108), April 24, 2006

Our statement follows:

The University Faculty Library Board, Cornell University: "Faculty
Concerns with Section 108 of U.S. Copyright Law and its Implications
for access to Academic Use of Digital Materials"

The University Faculty Library Board of Cornell University welcomes
the opportunity to provide input into the revision of Section 108 of
U.S. copyright law.

Next event:
During the early morning hours on Monday, April 24th, 2006, two elevated supercell thunderstorms developed just to the west and northwest of Wichita, Kansas, with one of the storms forming over southeastern Reno County, while the second storm developed over western Sedgwick County. The latter, southern-most supercell became the one of clear interest as it moved eastward across the Wichita Metropolitan area between 1210 and 1230 UTC (710 and 730 AM CDT), producing destructive hail with the west side of the city bearing the brunt of the storm’s wrath. This storm produced very large hail on the west side of Wichita with hailstones ranging in size from 2.00 to 3.00 inches in diameter. Property damage from this hailstorm was estimated at 70 million dollars.

Next event:
About 1,500 people in flood-hit southern Romania have been forced to flee their homes after the Danube river burst through defences.

The water broke through despite efforts to reinforce the dams near the villages of Bistret and Oltina.
Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia and Hungary have been affected by flooding caused by the swollen Danube.
Thousands of hectares of land have been swamped and thousands of homes have been evacuated.
Heavy rainfall and melting snow have pushed the Danube to its highest level in more than a century.

Headline:
Monday, April 24, 2006:
With skyrocketing gas prices, it is clear that the American people can no longer afford the Republican Rubber Stamp Congress and its failure to stand up to Republican big oil and gas company cronies. Americans this week are paying $2.91 a gallon on average for regular gasoline – 33 cents higher than last month, and MORE THAN DOUBLE THE PRICE than when President Bush first came to office.

Past event taking place on April 24, 1184 BC:
Greeks enter Troy using the Trojan Horse

Just thought this would be an interesting read. Enjoy.
