    When you put in Love this is what you get.

    love (v.)
    O.E. lufian "to love, cherish, show love to; delight in, approve," from P.Gmc. *lubojan (cf. O.H.G. lubon, Ger. lieben), from root of love (n.). Related: Loved; loving. Adjective Love-hate "ambivalent" is from 1937, originally a term in psychological jargon


    lufian Funny that very close to Lucifer in a way.

    Internet archives

    The Internet Archive, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, is building a digital library of Internet sites and other cultural artifacts in digital form. Like a paper library, we provide free access to researchers, historians, scholars, the print disabled, and the general public.

    About the Wayback Machine

    Browse through over 240 billion web pages archived from 1996 to a few months ago. To start surfing the Wayback, type in the web address of a site or page where you would like to start, and press enter. Then select from the archived dates available. The resulting pages point to other archived pages at as close a date as possible. Keyword searching is not currently supported.

    http://archive.bibalex.org, the Internet archive at the New Library of Alexandria, Egypt, mirrors the Wayback Machine. Try your search there when you have trouble connecting to the Wayback servers.

    Welcome to OoCities.org

    In October 2009 we archived our olden cities of the web: The unique pages on "GeoCities.com" just before they were taken down. Geocities started in 1994 and was the first giant "social network" and one of the most important websites in the world until it was closed on 27.10.2009. Our aim is to save those pages which are worthy and unique scientific sources or are of great public interest as well as those, which are historically interesting or just representing the 90's website culture and style. If you are interested in these old pages feel free to browse around.

    As this website contains thousands of pages of reliable, verifiable information dealing with a wide variety of topics, this page is designed to help you quickly find the best information that is of most interest to you. Reading through the whole page before exploring the links provided is recommended. This information is presented as an opportunity to educate yourself and others, and to inspire us to work together to strengthen democracy and build a brighter future for all.

    WantToKnow.info specializes in providing information-packed summaries and key media articles containing reliable, verifiable material on a number of major cover-ups. For a table listing all summaries available on our website, click on Concise Summaries in the column of links at the top left of any page. To access our news database of one-paragraph summaries of the most revealing news articles published in the mainstream media, click on Key Media Articles in the links at the top left of any page. Immediately beneath that, you will find a News Article Index to all of the news topics covered with links direct to brief excerpts of the best major media articles on each topic.

    Click on Top Resources in the upper left row of links for a select list of the very best books, videos, and websites on each major cover-up. One-paragraph descriptions and ratings for interest and reliability are given for each resource listed. Three stars are placed in front of the best items. Simply reading through this list of resources will reveal the depth and breadth of highly revealing, yet little-known information covered on this website.

    Quite an extensive and all encompassing library to be found here in Project 1947 on the subject of UFOs




    PROJECT 1947

    PROJECT 1947 is a world-wide effort to document the origins of the modern UFO phenomenon. Research for the project has yielded many early-era UFO reports via the FOIA, newspaper articles and contemporary accounts. Some of the material gathered by PROJECT 1947 is on display here.

    Project 1947 is a massive collective effort with the 1947-era UFO sighting as the principal focus. During research visits, when time permits, other areas are examined. After 1947 the priorities are the 1900-1946 period, early official and scientific interest, the early UFO era (1948-1965), and finally more recent events. I personally have visited over 120 archives, libraries, and newspapers in 36 states and provinces. Additionally, I have ordered directly or via interlibrary loan material from 50 more institutions. Over 100 individuals worldwide have screened over 1500 newspapers of 1947, contributed thousands of newspaper clippings, reports, and other items from their files, and offered their services.
    Some of these data yielded interesting hints of little-known activity for other periods. From the work of several researchers, we have found small airship waves during World War I (see Just Cause, September 1995, and Thomas E. Bullard's The Airship File, privately published).

    Here is a list of over 40 educational websites where you can get a free education

    According to www.webometrics.info, there are more than 17 000 universities, but getting a degree in many of them is quite costly. Many students around the world(and their families) get into big debt or have to work over sixty hours a week in order to afford an education.
    Two thirds of the US college seniors who graduated in 2011 had student loan debt, with an average of over 27 000 USD per person. Reading those statistics I can’t stop thinking about those words from over 30 years ago:

    With mass education, it turned out that most people could be taught to read and write. In the same way, once we have computer outlets in every home, each of them hooked up to enormous libraries, where you can ask any question and be given answers, you can look up something you’re interested in knowing, however silly it might seem to someone else. – Isaac Asiov

    Isaac Asimov died in 1992, but if he could see the opportunities that the Internet is giving us in XXI century he would probably grin from ear to ear. Getting a degree in an university might be expensive, but there are much better options. There are many websites on the Internet that now offer FREE of charge learning materials. Now even the poorest people could afford to be better educated than many of Harvard’s graduates, all they need is access to a computer(does not even have to be personal one, it could be the one that the local library offers for public use)

    10 research tips for finding answers online





    1. There are no new questions. Have a research question? Trust me, it’s been asked before. Put your exact question into quotations as a search term, and you will find, at the very least, a lead to your answer. Want to find out how much of the ocean has been explored? Type “How much of the ocean has been explored” into your search engine, and you will likely get your answer.
      .
    2. Didn’t get your answer from the above? Try working backwards. If the answer you are looking for doesn’t pop up, then work backwards from how you think the answer would be phrased. Try out different chunks of the question to get you going in the right direction. With that ocean example, you are likely looking for a percentage — so instead, search the phrase “percent of the ocean” and see if that gets you any closer.
      .
    3. If searching for something less specific, channel your inner writer. If you are trying to research something that has the potential for multiple answers, then think about common phrasings that a writer would use to describe the subject. For example — if you were searching for stories about people who collaborated after meeting at TED, search for phrases like “first met at TED,” “were introduced at TED,” or “while attending TED,” as those terms would likely be used by a writer to explain the concept.
      .
    4. Nexis is nice, but Google is great. Yes, there are pricy database research tools that are wonderful to have access to. But Google is my search engine of choice — with the advent of blogs and online archives, it is often actually better and more complete. While it depends on the scope and timeframe of your research project, if you are searching for breaking or current news issues, start with Google.
      .
    5. Google doesn’t have your answers? Google Books might. As much as I love — and begin all of my searches with — a simple Google search, Google Books is my favorite resource when a deeper dive is necessary. A majority of the books are fully readable within the digital database, and the ability to search for phrases within the books is a game changer. Use tips #1, 2, and 3 while searching through the pages of a book, and a wealth of information will appear.
      .
