PPACA (aka Obamacare) broken down into its main subsections with brief explinations and citations linking into the actual PPACA document (why is it always PDF?).
Its interesting to see the very small number of parts folks are complaining about versus the rest which mostly strikes me as “how could this not already be the case?”
I’m no expert, and everything I posted here I attribute mostly to Wikipedia or the
actual bill itself, with an occasional Google search to clarify stuff. I am absolutely not a difinitive source or expert. I was just trying to simplify things as best I can without dumbing
them down. I’m glad that many of you found this helpful.”

A web browser add-on security research paper that describes the Google Chrome security model. "We propose a new browser extension system that improves security by using least privilege, privilege
and strong isolation. Our system limits the misdeeds an attacker can perform through an extension vulnerability.
Our design has been adopted as the Google Chrome extension system."

Irritatingly, my G1 won't show me PDFs so I've made the Google Docs PDF viewer which will load PDFs on the
web up in Google Docs. Google Docs has the useful ability to display PDFs in web
browsers without any Adobe software and works (mostly) on Android.
This was very easy to put together as an Android activity. First its necessary to register the application as handling PDFs from the web. This is done via the intent-filter declaration in the
data android:scheme="http" android:mimeType="application/pdf"/
The action part says my activity will view PDFs, the data part says it accepts data with the PDF mime-type and with a URL that has an HTTP scheme. The browsable category is necessary to allow
links from a browser to open this activity.
Second, the activity opens up the browser to Google Docs pointing to the PDF.
Intent intent = new Intent();
This is very simple code to invoke a new intent browsing to a newly constructed URL for the PDF in Google Docs. That was easy.

an external loader, and executes as valid IA32 code."

Research paper modelling zombie infection. "The key difference between the models presented here and other models of infectious disease is that the dead can come back to life." Also, love the
references section with "Snyder, Zack (director), 2004 Dawn of the Dead" next to things like "Bainov, D.D. & Simeonov, P.S. Impulsive Differential Equations: Asymptotic Properties of the
Solutions. World Scientific, Singapore (1995)."
