Journal of Academic Legal Studies
http://www.joals.org/index.php/current

The Journal of Academic Legal Studies (JOALS) is a new, free access online journal initiated by the Centre for Applied Linguistics of the University of Hannover. It aims to provide young legal scholars with an entry point into the world of academic publishing, applying a rigid peer-review system whilst acknowledging that high quality academic work can be produced by undergraduates, postgraduates and postdoctoral scholars alike. For each issue of the journal, which shall appear regularly in both a Spring and a Fall issue, with the possibility of special issues on particularly interesting points of law, it is intended to achieve a combination of
articles from established scholars and young academics as well as professionals and young lawyers. The University of Hannover is actively seeking to involve other universities, especially in the UK, the Republic of Ireland and the United States, in this project. Contributions are currently solicited, ranging from full articles to book reviews of interesting works of legal literature. Although an international focus in encouraged, it is not a requirement for consideration. Furthermore, reviewers are actively sought by the Journal, to help choose the contributions which will most advance debate in their respective fields. This will be added to Legal Resources 2006 Internet MiniGuide.

The Fund supports entrepreneurial approaches to developing affordable goods and services for the 4 billion people in the world who live on less than $4 a day; b) TechnoServe: helps budding entrepreneurs turn good business ideas into thriving enterprises. With funding from the Google Foundation, they are launching a Business Plan Competition and an Entrepreneurship Development Program in Ghana; c) Water Research: The Google Foundation plans to support research in western Kenya to identify ways to prevent child deaths caused by poor water quality and to better understand what works in rural water supply. The research is being conducted by Alix Zwane and Edward Miguel of UC Berkeley and Michael Kremer of Harvard University; and d) PlanetRead: an organization seeking to improve literacy in India using same-language subtitling. By adding subtitles to films and videos of popular folk songs, PlanetRead gives people who have low literacy skills regular reading practice. As it expands, this approach has the potential to reach hundreds of millions of people.

Gather

Gather
http://www.gather.com/

Gather is a place where you can share the things that matter to you with the people that matter to you, too. You can connect around a Supreme Court nominee, an Umbrian chicken recipe, a new album by Aimee Mann, or your child’s soccer game. You can share your thoughts with the entire world, or exchange ideas, photography, audio (even podcasts), or video with just your friends, your family, or your work colleagues. You can connect with your book club, your PTA, your management team, or your committee to elect a new great leader in town on Gather. They will give you a place where your group can share information with one another or with the world. And the dreaded question: how much does it cost? How about if they pay you for a change? No, really, no kidding. You will be creating great content on Gather, for audiences large and small. Some of the things you contribute might be brilliant, novel, and interesting to a lot of people. Some might bring people from around the web to try Gather for the first time. That creates real value for other Gather users and they want to reward you for doing it.
