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. How do we keep up with who said what and check to see if it contradicts their earlier statements or twists the facts/statistics? Hardly a day goes by that I don't see an article that questions or outright refutes something said in a speech or debate. But which sites can we believe?
