Google stock hits new high as analysts boost earnings estimates

By Michael Liedtke, The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO -- Google Inc.'s earnings are growing so rapidly that not even the stock market bulls can keep up.

Blown away by the online search engine leader's first-quarter profit, securities analysts raised their already high expectations for Google and investors scrambled Friday to buy a piece of a company that's drawing comparisons to some of high-technology's greatest growth stocks of the past.

The fervor lifted Google's stock to a new high on an otherwise dismal day on Wall Street.

Google's shares traded as high as $224 on the Nasdaq Stock Market before retreating later in the day. By the time Nasdaq closed, Google's shares stood at $215.81, a gain of $11.59, or 5.7 percent.

National Post

TORONTO -- Supporters of the province's proposed smoking ban say they want the government to close a loophole that could expose Ontario youth to tobacco advertising.

Rowena Pinto of the Canadian Cancer Society says the bill doesn't ban massive convenience store cigarette displays.

These, known as "power-walls," tempt young people to smoke.

She says the group plans to raise the issue during the four days of public hearings on the proposed laws that start today in Toronto.

What is an RSS feed?

RSS is a format used to syndicate news and other web content. This includes major news organizations such as The New York Times and Wired, but also covers blogs and other types of content. Sites that offer RSS-formatted content are accessible through a news aggregator such as NewsGator, which feeds and displays new items from each feed you track.

What is a blog?

A blog is a journal, a running log of thoughts and or commentary that an author (or “blogger”) makes available for reading on a website. Blogging software allows bloggers to update their weblogs whenever they want. People reading the blog can respond to individual entries of the blogger, sometimes creating extended discussions.

Extensible Markup Language (XML) is a simple, very flexible text format. Originally designed to meet the challenges of large-scale electronic publishing, XML is also playing an increasingly important role in the exchange of a wide variey of data on the Web and elsewhere.

My Ultimate Briefcase

# First, it's no secret I am a Firefox junkie. I am also a Web junkie and I am trying to move my entire life off the desktop and onto "the cloud" so I can access my information from anywhere. My essential Firefox extensions include Scrapbook, Spellbound and the Bloglines Toolkit. Online apps I use regularly include Bloglines, Blogspot, Lycos, Gmail, a Socialtext personal wiki,, Flickr, Microsoft Outlook Web Access for corporate mail, Citrix and finally TypePad for my blog. I am also a huge fan of Google Desktop Search. I use Firefox's Live Bookmarks feature extensively as well. In fact, I use Live Bookmarks primarilly to access RSS news search feeds to find new things to blog about and do corporate intelligence.
And now that Google has bought Keyhole, this should be great for powerpoints or making videos.

What can you do with Keyhole:
Fly from space to your home town. Visit exotic
locales such as Maui, Tokyo, Rome and Paris.
Satellite imagery makes it real. Explore restaurants,
hotels, parks and schools. Think magic carpet ride!

It came from outer space. This lovely word refers to the remains of a large ancient meteoric impact, a roughly circular scar of crushed and deformed bedrock, from half a mile to 40 miles (0.8 to 64 km) in diameter. It’s only in the last half century that these remnants have been identified for what they are, since most have been almost completely eroded away. The best way to identify one is through the cone of shattered rock that lies beneath it. The most famous is probably the Sudbury Astrobleme in Canada, whose mines supply about half the world’s nickel. Geologists may dispute the inclusion of this word in the Weird Words category, as it is a well-known term in geology, though it only dates only from the 1960s. But let's salute the person who invented it: showing a poetic streak not often associated with that most literally down-to-earth subject, it was coined from Greek astron, a star, plus blema, a wound. Star wound—what a romantic notion. Shall we never think of geologists as prosaic ever again.
