Amnesty International is quite well known for bringing attention to the plight of various marginalized groups and individuals across the globe, along with its significant advocacy and lobbying activities.

Since May 2001, the organization has also placed its provocative monthly magazine, The Wire, online for access by the general public. The September 2004 issue features news pieces on the rights of women in the Solomon Islands, the plight of children in Honduras, and the organization's worldwide appeals made on the behalf of victims of human rights violations.

Visitors to the site will want to look through archived issues from previous months, which may also serve as an educational resource for young people and those interested in human rights issues. The online version of the magazine is also available in Arabic and Spanish. Visit this site.

8. Education: Historical Maps Online
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

David Rumsey has been delighting the cartographically inclined by placing some of his own private collection of maps online for several years now, and this latest online collection is no exception. The collection contains every map contained within his latest publication, Cartographica Extraordinaire: The Historical Map Transformed, which he coauthored with cartographer Edith M. Punt.

All of the maps from the book are made freely available for the web-browsing public on this fine site, and are made even more exquisite through the Insight browser, which allows visitors a great deal of control in looking at various minute details of each map. All told, there are 118 maps in the collection, including gems such as a map of San Francisco from 1852 and an exploration map of Oregon from 1845 based on the expeditionary work of John C. Fremont.

9. Education: The Imperial War Museum
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

The nature of war and its aftermath has served as the inspiration for numerous creative works, including those in the visual arts, poetry, film, and photography. Of course, wars themselves have been well documented in general, particularly with the explosion of various technological innovations that allow individuals the opportunity to capture various moments both on the battlefield and the home front.

The Imperial War Museum Collections Online Database allows the intrepid web-browser access to over 150,000 records relating to items in their holdings. Out of these 150,000 online records, approximately 3,000 of these items are fully available on this site, and their number includes photographs, works of art, "soundbites", and other visual artifacts.

As searching the entire collection may be daunting, the staff at the Museum has created a number of thematic categories as a way of introducing some of their more prominent materials.

Some of these categories include "War in the Air", "Truth & Propaganda", and "Burial & Remembrance". Overall, this is both an engaging and well-thought-out site.

Visit this site.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =


Cape Town is enjoying a marked increase in interest among businesses based in Johannesburg, Durban and overseas, wishing to open either new businesses or branch offices, reports Nadia Razis, leasing and sales consultant at Pam Golding Commercial, a member of the Pam Golding Property group.
She says overseas businesses perceive South Africa - and Cape Town in particular - as a cost effective hub in which to operate. To read the full report, go to our NEWS DESK link.

14. Real Estate: Security for your property
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

SECURITY remains a growing business in South Africa, not only because of greater uneasiness about crime prevention generally (a recent ISS National Victims of Crime survey concluded that we are much more fearful of crime today than we were in 1998), but a booming property market is spurring the demand for various security services even further.

To explore any country off the beaten track is a rewarding experience. In Britain, the country's highways and byways lead to unexpected gems such as a holiday home disguised as a pineapple, an Italianate village in the Welsh mountains and gardens dotted with classical temples.

For travel with a difference, you can take a ride in a strange sea-tractor or a horse-drawn stagecoach! To read this full report, go to our NEWS DESK link.
