Barbara J. Feldman
Dear Barbara,

As you might know, I make most of my living from the advertising that appears on my websites. Most people, however, may never have enough traffic to their personal sites to make any significant income this way.

Today that’s about to change! I just discovered a way to earn money from online advertisers, without having a high-traffic site. Here’s how:

I just signed up to be part of Agloco, an Internet economic network launched a few days ago. Basically, Agloco gives its members part of the money they generate from online ads. Their slogan is “Get Your Share of the Internet.”

Agloco membership is free. Among the founders are Stanford students and the couple who launched AllAdvantage in 1999, which had millions of members and paid out over $100 million.

Best of all, there is nothing you can lose, because all you do is sign up for free, invite friends to join and use the Internet normally with a small toolbar installed. As of today, the toolbar is still in beta test, but if you sign up now, you will be ready to roll when the Agloco toolbar is ready to download.

So, click on this link and sign up for free today:

See ya on the Net,

The Pearl Harbor Naval Station on the Hawaiian island of Oahu is the hub of United States Pacific naval power. Most of the Navy’s major commands have headquarters there. Yet even after sixty-five years, its name is still synonymous with the surprise Japanese attack of “December 7, 1941 — a date which will live in infamy.” The United States suffered 3,700 casualties, along with damage to twenty-one ships and 300 planes.

Eyewitness to History: Attack at Pearl Harbor
http://www.eyewitnesstohistory.com/pearl.htm
****
“The surprise was complete. The attacking planes came in two waves; the first hit its target at 7:53 AM, the second at 8:55. By 9:55 it was all over. By 1:00 PM the carriers that launched the planes from 274 miles off the coast of Oahu were heading back to Japan.” This single page description of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor includes quotes from eyewitnesses and some amazing photographs. Links to related pages (The Japanese View and The White House Reacts) are in the right-column, below the ad.

MSNBC Interactive: Pearl Harbor
http://www.msnbc.com/modules/pearlharbor/experience/
*****
This interactive movie from MSNBC starts as soon as the page loads, so have your speakers turned on. At first glance, this looks like a regular “old-fashioned” video, but there are interactive activities to explore in between each chapter. Start by examining four clues to the impending Japanese air strike that were mostly ignored, and then move through the chapters using the Next button, or the direct navigation menu at the bottom of the player. Peppered with first-person narratives, this is an outstanding example of multimedia learning.

National Geographic: Remembering Pearl Harbor
http://plasma.nationalgeographic.com/pearlharbor/
*****
The National Geographic Pearl Harbor site is overflowing with excellent features. The following are just two of my favorite clicks. Beyond the Movie takes a look behind the scenes of the 2001 “Pearl Harbor” movie from Touchstone, and at characters such as Dorie Miller, the real-life cook played by Cuba Gooding. The Attack Map is a multimedia map and time line created with photos, narratives, and footage that “bring the attack on Pearl Harbor in Oahu, Hawaii, to life – moment by moment, target by target.”
