                                                  "SKYWARN"STORM SPOTTERS 

The COMET Program is pleased to announce the publication of the SKYWARN Spotter Training Course. This course consists of two modules, "Role of the SKYWARN Spotter" and "SKYWARN Spotter Convective Basics", that provide baseline training for spotters including an overview of the national program and its history as well as actions to take during severe thunderstorms. Learners review multiple scenarios that walk them through procedures for making spotter reports with best practices for maintaining personal safety. They work through image galleries to practice identifying the spectrum of each storm feature in the field. This course includes photographs, video, audio narration, and companion print versions. The intended audience for the SKYWARN Spotter Training Course is the general public interested in becoming storm spotters, and after this training, you can register to become a SKYWARN spotter with the NWS. Please follow this link to enroll in the course: http://www.meted.ucar.edu/training_course.php?id=23. Most COMET modules use JavaScript and Adobe® Flash® for navigation, animation, and/or presentation of multimedia elements.

Thank you for participating in SETI@home. The SETI@home team has made much
progress in the past year.  We successfully released our "Astropulse"
application which searches the data for high power pulses, which, some have
argued, may be a more efficient technique for an extraterrestrial civilization
to transmit signals.  No SETI project has searched for this type of signal
before.  We also may detect new types of interstellar or intergalactic objects
using this technique.  However, the technique requires much CPU power.  This
means we need more volunteers like you to help us process this data. So please,
tell a friend about SETI@home.

We've also made significant progress on our Near Time Persistency Checker
(NTPCKR) which sifts through the potential signals you have returned to find
those that are most likely to be of extraterrestrial origin.  We have more
surprises to come, which we will announce in the coming weeks and months.

But there is still far more to be done. Although we are pleased with the
success of last winter's funding drive, and grateful for the generosity of our
donors, we still don't have a sufficient budget to accomplish our science goals
as quickly as we would like.  With more funds we hope to hire an additional
person to maintain the servers and web site. This would free our existing
researchers to work more on the science of SETI@home and increase our chances
of finding an extraterrestrial signal, and less on keeping our servers

To keep SETI@home operating for the next year, and to provide these new
capabilities, we will need to raise approximately $548,200.  Currently
SETI@home is mostly funded by donations from people like you.

We hope that despite these difficult economic times, you are able to consider
making a donation to SETI@home at this time. You can make a secure
deductible donation
by credit card by clicking on the link above. Instructions
for donation by check or money order are there as well. Unless you specify
otherwise, your donation will be noted by a star icon next to your username on
the SETI@home pages and your username will appear on our list of donors. If you
do not wish to have this recognition you may indicate that as well. Please be
assured that regardless of whether or not you choose to have your donation be
anonymous, SETI@home will not share your address with other organizations.

You can check on our fundraising progress, view our past and projected
budgets, and see more details of what we hope to accomplish in the coming year
by visiting our main site at

How to Disable A Stolen Mobile phone

Have your mobile stolen ? Don't worry, he who has stolen your mobile can't even sell your stolen mobile if you read this article carefully.

Simply write down on your mobile phone following code.
To check your Mobile Phone's Serial number, key in the following digits on your phone: All mobile phone users should keep a note of their handset's serial number (known as the 'IMEI'), as it's very handy if the phone is lost or stolen. The number can normally be found under the battery (looking something like 004400/01/123456/7).

You can also get this number from the phone software, by entering following useful code:

Simply write down on your mobile phone following code.

* # 0 6 #

A 15 digit code will appear on the screen after pressing send button, or in some phones it comes automatically just by writing above given code. . This Number is unique to your Handset. Write it down and keep it somewhere safe. Should your phone get stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this code. They will then be able to block your handset so even if the thief changes the SIM card, your phone will be totally useless. You probably won't get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it can't use/sell it either. If everybody does this, there would be no point in people stealing mobile phones!
