reality shows UK style

Telegraph | News | Viewers start to lose appetite for the Hell's Kitchen recipe: "t has not been a great week for champions of 'reality' television, of which ITV's Hell's Kitchen is the latest example. Three days ago, Bob Geldof predicted that such programmes would soon be shunted aside by quality documentaries. 'People want to see reality on TV, rather than yet more reality TV,' he said."

Survey of the Month

Lemurs possess higher level intelligence than once believed.

MSNBC - Lemurs may not be so dumb after all

I have unsubscibed from most of my lists so have time to surf

So far, it suggests primitive animals such as lemurs need a good reason, such as a treat, to bother trying to count. Humans and monkeys, in contrast, will stretch their minds simply out of curiosity.

Lemurs are primates, as are monkeys, apes and humans. But they are considered far less intelligent. “The little bit of research that’s out there suggests their learning capacities are not as sophisticated as those of monkeys,” said psychologist Elizabeth Brannon, who led the research.

Today is the big day for "The Day After Tomorrow" — the disaster movie based on the idea that higher global temperatures could set off a new ice age. The flick is only the latest Hollywood offering to touch off a scientific and/or political debate as well — just as "The China Syndrome" did for nuclear power, or "Armageddon" did for the asteroid threat.

UK Broadband launches NETVIGATOR
Thames Valley Debut for Wireless Internet Access

Thames Valley, UK, May 6, 2004 - UK Broadband announced today the launch of a high-speed wireless broadband service - NETVIGATOR - that will revolutionise the way people access and use the Internet.

Six areas in the Thames Valley will be the first places in the country to experience the NETVIGATOR service, which offers wireless broadband to the home and the office, with an initial choice of a 512Kbits per second or 1Megabit per second. This is 10 to 20 times faster than a standard dial up Internet connection.

NETVIGATOR provides this broadband access without the need for a telephone line or cable connection. The system is self-installed in a few minutes, with a plug and play device available in high street shops, or ordered over the Internet.

"This is truly revolutionary as it allows customers to install their broadband service within minutes and offers dedicated service with very high speed access," said Mike Butcher, CEO of UK Broadband. "This technology is going to change people's lives."

Because the NETVIGATOR technology is wireless, you can have a broadband connection in any room in the house. This high-speed broadband "always on" access makes it easy to surf the net, download videos or music, and bank or shop over the Internet.

"Broadband wireless opens up the Web to people," said Mr. Butcher. "Many people have been reluctant to switch to broadband through fixed telephone lines because of the cost, delays in getting connected and the frustration of dealing with multiple service providers. NETVIGATOR is different. It is simple to install, and since it is wireless, you don't need an engineer to visit your home."

NETVIGATOR is one of the most advanced broadband offerings available. NETVIGATOR is operated by UK Broadband Limited, a subsidiary of PCCW Limited, which is one of Asia's leading integrated communications companies. PCCW operates NETVIGATOR in Hong Kong and has over 700,000 broadband customers. UK Broadband owns a nationwide UK and Northern Ireland contiguous licence to enable wireless broadband services.

The service will initially be available in Aldershot, Maidenhead, Reading, Slough, Windsor, and Wokingham.

After completing this launch, UK Broadband will announce its national rollout plans for this new generation service in the UK and Northern Ireland.

Notes to Editors

The NETVIGATOR system will be available at either high street shops; by going to; or by calling 0800 056 9889.
NETVIGATOR uses wireless technology and initially is only available in certain areas. The coverage will increase over the coming weeks. It is possible to check whether a location is covered by Netvigator by visiting the website,
Subscribers will receive a one-month no obligation free trial , followed by a monthly charge of £18 for 512Kbits/s and £28 for 1Megabit on the basis of a 12-month contract.
About UK Broadband
UK Broadband Limited is currently introducing its fast and easy wireless broadband service NETVIGATOR to the UK. NETVIGATOR brings high-speed broadband through a wireless network, providing flexibility and portability for use in the home and office.

The company acquired 13 of 15 licenses auctioned in the UK last year to enable wireless broadband services. It later acquired the remaining two licences in that band. UK Broadband Limited is a wholly owned subsidiary of PCCW Limited (SEHK: 0008, ADR-NYSE: PCW).

About PCCW

PCCW Limited is one of Asia's leading integrated communications companies, with group revenues of approximately 2.6 billion U.S. dollars. The Company has approximately 12,500 employees and operations spanning Asia, Europe and the U.S. PCCW is also a 50 percent owner of Reach, Asia's largest international traffic carrier. PCCW provides innovative products and services in areas such as new generation fixed-line telephony, broadband, IT, wireless and delivery of home entertainment. PCCW is the operator of one of the world’s most advanced broadband networks and has over 700,000 broadband customers. Internationally, PCCW provides technical services to network operators and enables organizations to bring their business to Asia, and take Asian business to the rest of the world.

Index to the 1901 Census of Canada

The site hosts a volunteer project to produce a free, online index to the 1901 Census of Canada. The site is based on transcribing from the census images provided by the National Archives of Canada and anyone with a web browser and an internet connection can participate. The site has over 2,000,000 lines transcribed, has approximately 40,000 links to other records, and is completely free to browse!


Media Room - What's New - Library and Archives Canada: "Research for Project Naming began in 2001 with the selection and scanning of photographs. The next stage involved youth travelling across Nunavut showing Elders these photographs on laptop computers. The people in the images were then 'named' by the Elders and the new information was added to the Library and Archives Canada photographic database. Through Project Naming, hundreds of Nunavut residents who were photographed between the 1920s and the 1950s have been identified."

What is Sleep Apnea? Sleep apnea is a serious, potentially life-threatening condition that is far more common than generally understood.

For many sleep apnea patients, their bed partners or family members are the first ones to suspect that something is wrong, usually from their heavy snoring and apparent struggle to breathe.
Coworkers or friends of the sleep apnea victim may notice that the individual falls asleep during the day at inappropriate times (such as while driving a car, working, or talking).

The patient often does not know he or she has a problem and may not believe it when told. It is important that the person see a doctor for evaluation of the sleep problem.

HGS: 1700 Census Project

By order of 19 Oct 1700 a list was to be made of all men in Denmark (most lists seem to be dated December 1700 or January 1701).
It included statistical columns listing a mark for age brackets over 18, 14-18, 10-14, 5-10, and 1-5 as a way of finding out how many men the government could count on in the case of a war.

The 1700 census of men includes a listing of all men by household, giving the property appraisal (hartkorn), the name of the head, his age, all those men in his household, their relationships and occupations, and their ages.

The 1700 census appears to have also been taken in Norway, Iceland, and other areas under Danish rule and many of these have been transcribed and published.

Family History Centre campus in Edinburgh.PDF

Deputy Justice Minister Hugh Henry today gave family historians their
first glimpse of the physical layout and organisation of the Scottish
Family History Centre campus in Edinburgh.
The centre, to be fully operational in 2006, will create a ‘one-stop-shop’
for genealogy research. It will bring together services provided separately
by the General Register Office for Scotland, National Archives of
Scotland and Court of the Lord Lyon.
The new family history centre will span the adjacent General Register
House and New Register House buildings at the East end of Edinburgh’s
Princes Street to create a fully-integrated Register House campus.

Frank McAveety, Minister for Tourism, Culture and Sport said:
“Research shows that many visitors to Scotland give “family roots and
ancestry” as the main influence on their decision to holiday in Scotland.
Scotland is fortunate in having some of the best genealogical resources in
the world. The development of a Family History Service provides a
valuable opportunity to attract more visitors and maximise use of this
tremendous resource.”
