DivX may be setting the standard on new compression technology


SHRINKING EXPANSION
SHRINKING EXPANSION
Walking into DivX's San Diego headquarters, it's hard to miss a deja vu vibe from the Internet bubble of 1999.

There's the casual attire - employees walking around in T-shirts and baggy jeans, shorts and flip-flops.

There's the Space Age furnishings and game tables, relics of the defunct Internet music company MP3.com, which used to occupy the building.

Text messaging adds to growing accident statistics of 'inattentive' drivers


TEXT MESSAGING
TEXT MESSAGING
It takes only a few seconds to send a text message. Flip open the cell phone, tap some keys, spell out a few words, and hit "send."

But try doing all that while driving. It's not easy.

"You're not supposed to read or put your makeup on while driving a car, either, but people do it," said Ashley Saari, 23, who said she frequently sends text messages while she's driving in Southern California.

On Nov. 7, Americans cast their votes for the arts


For people who believe taxes or bonds issues should be used to support the arts, Nov. 7 was a great day.

Ten arts-related ballot measures that went before voters in California, Louisiana, Ohio, Oregon, Texas and Utah were passed - some overwhelmingly. There were no other such ballot propositions elsewhere.

Getting ready for Windows Vista


Windows Vista is almost here! Businesses with volume license agreements can get it in November 30, 2006. Home users must wait until January 30, 2007. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't prepare. This is particularly true if you're buying a new computer.

Save Paramus Wetlands (Happy Holidays)


Paramus Wetlands
I chose Paramus as an ideal location to raise my family, moving in to a quiet cul-de-sac in 2000. Ed Onorato, my neighbor, has resided here for over 40 years, and also takes great pride in this community. 

Our homes, part of the Soldier Hill development, are surrounded by the cemetery, wetlands, trees/forested areas, municipal land, Reid Park, and a nature trail. Upon learning of a proposal to build an oversized, high-density development on a piece of environmentally sensitive land off of Soldier Hill Road, Ed and I have been conducting extensive research.

Black Friday in Paramus


Black Friday in Paramus
A shopper I am not! A bargain hunter .. YES .. but not a shopper. Today proved it! On Wednesday, I had visited Office Depot in town looking for a holder for my Nextel phone, mine having broken. 

In the Closeout Department was a holder along with an earpiece and a car battery charger for the munificent price of $2.50. I bought it!

Cut cheating by setting a good example


A GOOD EXAMPLE
A GOOD EXAMPLE
The Report Card on the Ethics of American Youth, done every two years by the Josephson Institute of Ethics, polled thousands of high school students and found, among other things, that: eight in 10 confessed to lying to a parent about something significant; and six in 10 said they had cheated on a test during the past year.

Whether you are a coach, a teacher or a parent, what do you think can be done, or what have you done, to instill in young people the concepts of trust and integrity?

A tribute to a fallen comrade


Over 60 members of the Paramus Police Department, family and friends, gathered in the chilly weather to pay tribute to a fallen comrade, Vincent M. Brock. Police Chief Frederick Corrubia spoke to the gathering and mentioned that this was the third ‘line of duty’ death that he had attended, memories that would always be sadly emblazoned in his mind. The Chief pointed out that it was good to see the fellowship that was extended to the deceased even though there were many younger members that had never met P O Vincent Brock.

Councilman Rich LaBarbieri mentioned that the Peewee Football team had a record breaking 12 – 0 season.
