New technologies require unbelievable speeds, massive storage


BUILT FOR SPEED
BUILT FOR SPEED
If you asked most Americans in 1985 whether they had any use for a PC with a modem and a hard drive, you would have met with a lot of laughter and blank stares.

Ask them today whether they want a gigabit Internet connection, a terabyte of storage and a teraflop processor, and the responses would be the same.

Why would anyone need a gigabit connection to the Internet? That's 1,000 megabits per second. And most people who have high-speed Internet are pretty happy with the 1- to 10-megabit connection they already have.

Underage and overlooked


UNDERAGED AND OVERLOOKED
UNDERAGED AND OVERLOOKED
Maggie is a typical teen, on the go, combining school and a social life, trying to find her way. Her parents, Jean and Pete, are trying to find their way, too.

Like most parents, they didn't think for a minute that their daughter was the kind to experiment with alcohol or drugs. "There is alcoholism in our family line, so I've been talking about it to my kids for a very long time," Jean says.

Bill of Rights expert: Use them or lose them


YOUR RIGHTS
YOUR RIGHTS
From time to time, political leaders have been known to go into rhetorical overdrive, waxing long and languorous on the wondrous essential freedoms and liberties in the United States. For instance, on the Fourth of July. But ask the average man or woman what these basic freedoms and liberties are, and you're likely to get a long pause. "Umm," said 19-year-old Maddie Bevitt of Roanoke, Ill., when asked to define civil liberties.

"I don't know what it means," she said at first. After a long, awkward silence, as she stood in a parking lot on Illinois Central College's East Peoria campus, she tried to dissect the question: What are civil liberties? "OK, civil," she started out. "Civil liberties." She paused again. "People's rights?" she asked. "I'm going to guess people's rights."

The new and free AOL wants you back

Today, AOL is moving away from its role as an Internet service provider. It continues to offer dial-up service. But it's giving away other features. The company plans to make up the difference with advertising.

POPULATION GROWTH
POPULATION GROWTH
Look at the top-priority campaigns of the nation's big environmental groups and you'll find endangered animals, pollution and global warming.

What's largely missing are high-profile, domestic initiatives that tackle what many conservationists agree is a chief source of these and other challenges: U.S. population growth.

FedEx Kinko's Signs and Graphics Center celebrates its Grand Opening


FedEx Kinko's Signs and Graphics Center
We would like to invite www.ParamusPost.com to our Grand Opening on Wednesday, 8/23/06 at 10 AM was the request we received. Eager to cover news in Paramus, we agreed! However, it is a little confusing. After locating the 315 Rte 17 S location near Einstein Moomjy, there were two doors to enter. Naturally I picked the wrong one!

Not seeing too many people on the one to the right, I opted to take the doors on the left. Wrong choice! The new center opening was on the right.

Lautenberg awarded Sam Brummer
Behind every great man is a woman; Rona Brummer is the living proof! This was proven when US Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) learned from Rona that Sam, her husband, had never received the Bronze Star medal for his bravery during WW II. Lautenberg researched it and on August 22nd 2006 delivered that medal to this veteran at his place of business, Hobby’s Delicatessen & Restaurant, 32 Branford Place in Newark.
