4. Education: French Drawings from Ingres to Degas
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

With art work from the Baltimore Museum of Art, the Walters Art Museum, and the Peabody Institute Art Collection of the Maryland State Archives, the Essence of Line is a comprehensive database of over 900 nineteenth-century French drawings by artists such as Eugine Delacroix, Honori Daumier, Paul Cizanne, and Edgar Degas.

The site provides several approaches to viewing the drawings - in addition to a variety of searches - author's name, drawing title, category - browse 27 highlights of the collection, or leaf through several sketchbooks (by Antoine Louis Barye, Karl Bodmer, Charles Emile Jacque), as well as two albums compiled by collector William T. Walters. The albums hold more finished works, such as The Confessional, a water color by Tissot, comissioned by Walters in 1867. Visit this site.

5. Education: Tate Gallery in London
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

The Tate Gallery in London is perhaps one of the world's finest museums of modern art, and is well-regarded for its creative online collections and galleries. Most recently they developed a rather novel way to browse through approximately 2000 of their artworks online. They are calling it Carousel and this website will allow the curious user to weave their way through this large collection. As their site notes, It's like a random walk with a subtle guiding hand.

The works are randomly generated on the site, and visitors can highlight images by clicking on them as they appear and also add them to their favorites list. No doubt this site will prove most efficacious for art educators, artists, and those interested in engaging in a bit of a peripatetic online artistic journey. Visit this site.

6. Education: Are you scared of the impending "bird flu"?
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Modern factory farms raise animals in extremely unnatural conditions, in overcrowded sheds, living in their own filth and breathing polluted air. It is little surprise that these have become major sources for deadly disease outbreaks like SARS, hoof-and-mouth disease, mad cow disease, the Johnes virus, and now the most dangerous of all: bird flu.

Read this report from our Editor who is very concerned about the way the World Health Organization (WHO) is handling this serious problem. Visit this link.

7. Immigration: Changes to UK Immigration Laws
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

The historic links between Britain and hundreds of thousands of Commonwealth citizens are under threat as part of a government overhaul of migration rules.

A new points-based immigration system threatens to end a scheme under which Commonwealth citizens with a British grandparent are allowed to enter and settle in Britain.

The move will mainly affect people from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa and Zimbabwe who have used the "ancestral visa" scheme to come to Britain. To read the full report, go to our NEWS DESK link.

9. Immigration: US Citizen Fees to be increased
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

It will cost more to become a U.S. citizen or a legal immigrant starting Wednesday. Immigrants will pay an average 4 percent more in fees associated with the filing, processing and resolution of their cases. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services will use the extra money to reduce backlogs and fund operations. To read the full report, go to our NEWS DESK link.

10. Real Estate: Property Boom in South Africa
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

The surge in property prices has replaced the race divide with a "class gap". This, coupled with several other factors that has seen race separateness being replaced with class separateness in South Africa, also saw the average monthly installment of a home mortgage repayment in the country top R4 000 a month.

This property trend is in a country where the unemployment rate is in the mid-40 percent range and millions have no formal housing or access to the formal economy. To read the full report, go to our NEWS DESK link.
