Equipping the Public Safety Vehicle of the Future
The Advanced Law Enforcement & Response Technology (ALERT)TM Vehicle can help fight crime and reduce traffic congestion and accidents. It has a digital camera and hand-held computer with citation, accident, and DWI arrest report forms and a global positioning system for precise location information. Everything is controlled by a single touch-screen in the vehicle's cockpit. An officer can transfer a document or a picture (such as a missing child or a wanted criminal) from one vehicle to another in as little as 30 seconds.

Federal Statistics Online
Everyone knows the U.S. Census Bureau counts how many people we have. But do you know that 69 other federal agencies collect and analyze statistics on everything from agricultural output to banking data to the top 20 hazardous substances to on time flight records, to weekly earnings? What federal statistics do you need today? It's on this one-stop site. PS: Arsenic is the number one hazardous substance.

Kids Next Door
It's summer and many kids are out of school. Here's a site where they can learn about being good citizens and have fun, too.

Nursing Home Compare
If you--or your elderly parents--are considering a nursing home, go here first. The Health Care Financing Administration's database contains information on every Medicare and Medicaid certified nursing home in the country. You can locate nursing homes by state, city, or zip code.
