Compare Auto Fuel Efficiency Online
Thanks to a website maintained jointly by EPA and the Department of Energy, car buyers can compare how new and used cars rate on fuel economy, greenhouse gas emissions, and estimated fuel costs. You can also download the "2001 Fuel Economy Guide," which will be available at car dealerships, public libraries, and credit unions later this fall. Also see Mileage Estimates for 2001 Model Year Vehicles.

After looking, authorized government buyers can place their orders on GSA Advantage!

VA Tele-Nurse Reaches
Out and Touches Someone

The nurse at Veterans Affairs in Tampa dials her patient in his home. The patient pushes a green button on a home monitor to answer. A speakerphone activates and a video display allows nurse and patient to see each other. That's when the examination begins, complete with electronic stethoscope and blood pressure cuff.

See Wild Salmon Runs
This is no fish story. Well, OK, it is a fish story, but it's true. As salmon mature, they return to fresh water to spawn. See real-time video of endangered sockeye, chinook and coho salmon migrating in a small King County stream in Washington State right from your desktop.
