I'll be taking a few days off to help out with a family medical matter, but during the break, take a look at Renew America Together, a Web site set up by President-elect Barack Obama's team to match you up with service opportunities in your neighborhood.
For many people, Martin Luther King Jr. Day (which will be observed next Monday) has become not just a day off from work, but a day set aside for community service. Here's hoping you find a worthwhile opportunity to serve - whether it's through Renew America Together, also known as USAService.org, or through any other outlet you choose.
And if you're looking to consider subjects even more cosmic during my days off, here's a magazine rack of Web links:
- Popular Mechanics: How to build on the moon
- Time: Life after Earth on 'Battlestar Galactica'
- Popular Science: Enter the PopSci Invention Awards!
- Discover: Is quantum mechanics controlling your thoughts?
Regular postings will resume next week.
