Today's Cool Site... Cool site, cool cities Moving to a new town? Wondering how where you live compares to other cities? We all have different ideas of what makes a great city. Even Partners for Livable Communities agrees that these ideas can change. So what is Partners for Livable Communities? It’s an organization that names the most livable cities in the country. Every few years, it gives awards in four categories. There are awards for large cities, mid-sized cities, small cities, and regions. On its Web site, you can read up on the winning cities and regions. And find out why these places were chosen. You can also read how the organization’s ideas on livability have evolved.

Ancient Refuge in the Holy Land   http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/scrolls/  Site Reviews(0)
"From Shimon Bar-Kokhba to Yehonathan . . . get ahold of the young men and come with them. And I shall deal with the Romans." So wrote legendary Jewish patriot Shimon Bar-Kokhba to his supporters during a desperate uprising for religious freedom in the year 132. In this program, NOVA explores the last refuge of one group of Bar-Kokhba's followers with an historian whose bold theories have rocked the world of biblical archeology. The expedition takes NOVA to a remote cave in the Judean desert, first excavated by the famed Israeli archeologist Yigael Yadin in 1960-61. Yadin uncovered a cache of ancient documents, human skulls, and artifacts that shed new light on the Bar-Kokhba revolt, which resulted in the Roman slaughter of 580,000 Jews.

Alasko Volcano Observatory   http://www.avo.alaska.edu/  Site Reviews(0)
Mt. Augustine has been spewing ash and dust for about a month now. And the Alaska Volcano Observatory has put together a Web site that monitors the volcano. For people who live in the area, the site is an important resource. They can use it to keep on top of developments and make informed decisions. But the site is interesting to the rest of us, too. No Alaska volcano has ever been this closely watched. It is fascinating to learn a little more about volcanoes. The site has images and updates on activity at the peak of the volcano. Some information is updated on an hourly basis. You can also view seismic data, which monitors the Earth's rumblings.

Advocate   http://images.advocate-art.com/Cumulus/index.html  Site Reviews(0)
I founded Advocate in 1992 with a group of illustrators who liked the idea of having an agent but not the other things that often came with that. It started out similar to an artists’ co-operative but grew quickly into a sales, marketing, legal, accounting, promotional, art management, web hosting office. We call our ethos “four f.a.c.t.’s” Fairness Ability Creativity and Trust, it’s about doing the right thing and being with the right people. We think our principles set us apart from conventional agencies, sticking to them has meant we have attracted the most creative illustrators and artists who in turn attract (with a little help) the best clients. The people we represent are perfectly able to conduct their own affairs but like working with Advocate because we offer value to them in the services we provide. It’s their choice to be with us, we have a high retention rate, most of the most popular artists in our group have been with us from the start What we don’t do is take control away from artists, we operate what we call a “transparent system”. Of course we allow direct contact with our artists and illustrators thus allowing creativity to flow without being diluted in translation. We also go beyond that too, treating artist and clients like the business partners they are. Business is all about relationships and we understand that often it is very important after the initial introduction for us to stand aside, only acting to assist if called upon. We can also pool together several artists for larger projects, almost as if we are a design agency, supplying formatted work, scanned and ready to go from say 30 artists at a time. We understand that it is important not to specialise in one art buying industry. By having a handle on multiple markets our artists and Advocate can carry over fresh perspectives and new ideas from one to another. Besides doing different projects makes life more interesting. Artists and clients benefit from being more exclusive with certain companies enabling them to find “a home”. Being everywhere can dilute an artist’s “special-ness” in the eyes of retailers, advertising agencies or publishers. So it is important that artists are not oversold in one industry, but diversify into as many art markets as possible! We supply illustration to book publishers, design and advertising agencies, greeting card and fine art publishers, wrapping paper and bag companies, ceramic manufacturers and potteries, and editorial illustrations for newspaper and magazines- whatever needs imagery, pub signs to mobile phone content. We have an on-line library which contains 50,000 images and helps us facilitate the very active re-licensing side of our business, generating a very important secondary income for our artists and giving clients the opportunity to get art fast. We are also experienced in building artists or their creations into brands and take exhibition space at the major brand shows - NY Licensing Show and Brand Licensing London.
