4-H saves stories of war
Monday, May 17, 2004
DEAN BOHN
THE SAGINAW NEWS
June 6, 1944, Arthur J. Scaife was a first lieutenant with the Army's 987th Field
Artillery Battalion hitting Juno Beach during the D-Day landings.
Sixty years later, Scaife is with his unit again while in his living room chair,
having traveled back to 1944 in his memories -- to tell his stories to a clutch of
4-H youths who are hitting the beach with him.

FLC receives 8 scrapbooks from McInnis
By Dale Rodebaugh
Herald Staff Writer
Fort Lewis College, the alma mater of Rep. Scott McInnis, R-Colo., received eight
scrapbooks this week of photographs, documents and memorabilia that chronicle the
long-time lawmaker's career as he prepares to leave office.
In a repository that already contains hundreds of documents accumulated by McInnis
during his decade in the state Legislature, the scrapbooks begin with his 13-vote victory in
the Statehouse in 1982 and end with the present.

History project urgent
By Jon Ward
THE WASHINGTON TIMES
The Library of Congress is stepping up its effort
to collect oral histories from the World War II
generation because an estimated 1,000 veterans
are dying every day.
The Veterans History Project started three
years ago, but officials at the Library of Congress
say there is a new sense of urgency to talk to
veterans before memories of the war are lost
forever.

Parole Museum Pays Tribute to Unsung System
The facility in Diamond Bar is the culmination of one agent's 14-year dream.
By William Wan, Times Staff Writer
It's not exactly the Getty or the Guggenheim, but the small, cream-colored room in
Diamond Bar is indeed a museum.
If security is a bit tight _ a pane of bulletproof glass keeps the receptionist safe _ it's
in keeping with the museum's unlikely subject: the California parole system.

Disaster Planning – Are You Prepared?
By GREG B. MICHETTI -- CNEWS Tech News
Anybody who has lost all of their data from a personal
computer or file server knows how sick one person can
become.
Furthermore, nothing is more demoralizing for a company’s personnel as when
they realize they have to recreate hundreds of word documents and spreadsheets.
And what about all those great contacts and files located within Outlook? They’re
gone, too. Aye carumba.

Why Nigerians are afraid of the electronic revolution
T he information technology industry is fast becoming omnipresent, penetrating almost every aspect of business and ordinary life. Almost any transaction and any business function is possible electronically.
In Nigeria where the e-culture is just growing, the expansion of the electronic world has been very aggressive with new Vistas opening by the day, and several visionary individuals championing the expansion at different fronts.
One of the Vanguards of the e-culture in business especially government business is Oyewole Oyedokun Chief Executive Officer of WolexDok Micro Processor, an IT support and data handling company.

Information Week
Rules, Rules, Rules May 17, 2004
Sarbanes-Oxley, the Health Insurance Portability
and Accountability Act, Gramm-Leach-Bliley, the
USA Patriot Act, the California Security Breach
Law, Securities and Exchange Commission rule
17a-4 -- these are but a few of the compliance
challenges companies face today.
By Steven Marlin
If Guardian Life Insurance Co. executive VP and CIO
Dennis Callahan ever takes up tennis, he'll probably be
thoroughly bored. Just a single ball, and only one person
trying to sneak it past him? Callahan, whose main job the
past 3-1/2 years has been to try to change the culture of
the company's technology organization, spends a good
chunk of his time--and more than $4 million a year--swatting back
compliance balls flying in from securities regulators and California
lawmakers.

Missouri lawmakers send governor revamped records law
By The Associated Press
05.17.04
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — The House gave final approval May 14 to a compromise bill
increasing penalties for public officials who violate the state’s open-records and
-meetings law.
As sent to Gov. Bob Holden, the bill, SB 1020, also would limit the fees that governments
could charge for copies of public records, and would clarify what constitutes a
“meeting”• in the age of electronic communications.

Fear for Sale,"
Greg Palast - These Times
Lunes, 17 de mayo de 2004
There were all those pieces
of people to collect -- tubes
marked "DM" (for "Disaster
Manhattan") -- from which
his company would extract
DNA for victim identification,
work for which the firm
would receive $ 12 million
from New York City's
government.
I have no doubt that Smith,
like the rest of us, grieved,
horrified and heartsick, at the
murder of innocent friends
and countrymen. As for the
12-million-dollar corpse
identification fee, that's
chump change to the $ 4
billion corporation Smith had
founded only four years
earlier, ChoicePoint of
Alpharetta, Georgia, a suburb
of Atlanta.

Libraries Juggle Privacy Issues
Despite Patriot Act, staff has not encountered government requests
By NATHAN J. HELLER
Crimson Staff Writer
What may be one of the most important pieces of
paper installed in the Harvard University Library
over the past couple of years isn’t found on
any shelf.
It lies instead on checkout counters and drawers
close at hand, and it offers protection for those
who protect and sustain the intellectual privacy of Harvard’s scholars.

9/11 Tape Has Late Change on Evacuation
By JIM DWYER
Published: May 17, 2004
As part of its hearings this week in New York, the independent commission investigating the
Sept. 11 attacks will report on one of the most contentious issues of that morning: the
contradictory evacuation instructions given in the World Trade Center, particularly
public-address announcements made by an official in the south tower urging tenants to stay in the
building even though fire was raging in the other tower.

By Paul Shread
Sony Electronics is rolling out storage
products based on blue laser optical

optical disc by using blue laser
technology and advanced optics,
according to Robert DeMoulin,
marketing manager for branded
storage products in Sony Electronics'
