Summer Express: 101 Simple Meals Ready in 10 Minutes or Less – New York Times Annotated

The pleasures of cooking are sometimes obscured by summer haze and heat, which can cause many of us to turn instead to bad restaurants and worse takeout. But the cook with a little bit of experience has a wealth of quick and easy alternatives at hand. The trouble is that when it’s too hot, even the most resourceful cook has a hard time remembering all the options. So here are 101 substantial main courses, all of which get you in and out of the kitchen in 10 minutes or less. (I’m not counting the time it takes to bring water to a boil, but you can stay out of the kitchen for that.) These suggestions are not formal recipes; rather, they provide a general outline. With a little imagination and some swift moves — and maybe a salad and a loaf of bread — you can turn any dish on this list into a meal that not only will be better than takeout, but won’t heat you out of the house… Click link above to continue

General Electric G1— Rookie of the Year?

Can a conglomerate that sells everything from nuclear submarines to network sitcoms bring anything new to the point-and-shoot camera market? Apparently, yes. Say hello to G1, the low-end debut model from GE’s new camera division, which manages to stand out in a crowded compact digicam market. Image quality is well above average for its class. The selection and arrangement of controls is smarter and cleaner than most, including a clever, multifunctional zoom wheel. And while clearly geared to the “leave it on auto” crowd, the 7-megapixel G1 contains unexpected goodies such as a “bulb” setting for long exposures and a user-definable time-lapse option. —David Becker

WIRED Sharp images. Smart exposure calculations. Pocket-friendly. Well-designed control layout. Effective automatic white balance. Handsome glossy black or steel grey case choices.

TIRED
Flash is rather wimpy. Only 3x optical zoom. Black case is a real smudge magnet.

Tiny dog saves baby from rattlesnake – Yahoo! News  Annotated

MASONVILLE, Colo. – Zoey is a Chihuahua, but when a rattlesnake lunged at her owners’ 1-year-old grandson, she was a real bulldog.

Booker West was splashing his hands in a birdbath in his grandparents’ northern Colorado back yard when the snake slithered up to the toddler, rattled and struck. Five-pound Zoey jumped in the way and took the bites.

"She got in between Booker and the snake, and that’s when I heard her yipe," said Monty Long, the boy’s grandfather.

The dog required treatment and for a time it appeared she might not survive. Now she prances about.

Binary America: Split in Two by A Digital Divide

Binary America: Split in Two by A Digital Divide – washingtonpost.com  Annotated

Less than a mile and a half from the Citadel, the site of the Democratic presidential debate tonight, sits Cooper River Courts, a public housing project. Forget the Web. Never mind YouTube, the debate’s co-sponsor. Here, owning a computer and getting on the Internet (through DSL or cable or Wi-Fi) is a luxury.

"I am low-income and computers are not low-income," says Marcella Morris, sitting on the front step of her apartment building on a sweltering day last week.

The unemployed 45-year-old adds: "I know how to use a computer. I just can’t afford one right now."

There exists "two Americas," as John Edwards, South Carolina‘s own son, likes to say: an America for the rich and an America for the poor. But what Edwards and the rest of the presidential field have yet to adequately address are the two Americas online: one that’s connected to high-speed Internet — socializing, paying bills, uploading debate questions to presidential candidates on YouTube — and one that’s not. This is the digital divide, now more than a decade old, a rarely discussed schism in which the unconnected are second-class citizens. In some parts of this so-called Internet ghetto, the screech of a telephone modem dialing up to get online is not uncommon. And with dial-up, YouTube is impossible to use.  …more
