Aloha Encyclopaedia Britannica Print Edition
by Nicholas G. Tomaiuolo
On March 13, 2012, no bugler played taps for Encyclopaedia Britannica,'s final print edition. But expressions of condolences outnumbered celebratory comments by 5 to 1 at the official Britannica.com blog where "Change: It's Really Okay," told the story of the passing of a printed reference work that is almost a quarter of a millennium old. The terse eulogy commemorated the 32 volumes noting that they were "a source of enlightenment as well as a comfort to their owners and users around the world." It continued, "But in a larger sense this is just another historical data point in the evolution of human knowledge."

Update on Political Fact-Check Websites
by Paula J. Hane
As I write this, the U.S. is in the midst of a hotly contested GOP presidential primary. The countdown to "Super Tuesday" is 6 days, and the countdown to the election is 251 days. Some days, I think I've just had enough election news. It's exhausting for a voting individual to examine all the claims and statements made by the candidates.

The Carousel Carver The Carousel Carver
by Perdita Buchan

This evocative historical novel tells the story of Giacinto, who emigrates from Italy in 1912 and becomes a carousel carver during the golden age of the craft in America, and Rosa, the eight-year-old orphan girl thrust into his care.

The Carousel Carver vividly recreates the world of the immigrant carvers—from the inspiration found in fiery horses, big cats, and children's laughter to the clatter, sawdust, and politics of Philadelphia's bustling multicultural workshops. This is an engaging and insightful tale of tolerance, second chances, and what it means for those once adrift to call America home.
