Vital records may be harder to access http://www.aberdeennews.com/mld/aberdeennews/news/10746771.htm
PIERRE - Unfettered public access to vital state records should no longer be allowed in South Dakota, legislators were told Wednesday. A bill before the Senate Health Committee would limit access to birth, death, marriage and divorce records.
Federal regulations require an entirely new approach to storing and
searching e-mails. Noncompliance is not an option.

Seeking Better Web Searches
Deluged with superfluous responses to online queries, users will soon benefit from improved search
engines that deliver customized results

longer must we run to a library to look up something; rather we can pull up relevant documents with just a few
clicks on a keyboard. Now that "Googling" has become synonymous with doing research, online search engines
are poised for a series of upgrades that promise to further enhance how we find what we need.

Trafficking in Memories (for Fun and Profit)
By GINIA BELLAFANTE
FOR Valentine's Day five years ago Dawn Oldham produced for her husband, Larry - a man who
resembles a spry and athletic Jerry Seinfeld - a scrapbook commemorating their marriage. The book,
more or less the size of a postcard, is smaller than the 45 or so others she has made for her family in the
last 15 years. In this particular volume Mrs. Oldham paid tribute to her husband's commitment to the
dictates of modern fatherhood, to his willingness to change diapers and wrest himself from bed in the
middle of the night.
