I got quite a few questions about my promotion of Agloco last week. Apparently I did a terrible job of explaining it, so here’s some answers to the frequently asked questions.
Q: Isn’t this a scam?
A: No. It is founded by people with a history of successful startups, and it was recommended by two people I trust: David Lawrence and Ray Everett-Church. It doesn’t cost anything to join, so you have nothing to lose.
Q: Can teenagers join?
A: Yes. You must be at least thirteen years old to join.
Q: Do I have to click on ads to make money?
A: No… all you need to do is to actively surf the Internet with the toolbar installed for up to five hours per month, and get others to join Agloco to do the same.

#3. Nobel Prize
by Barbara J. Feldman
Nobel Prize Printable (** for premium members only)
Each year on December 10 (the anniversary of the death of Alfred Nobel) the Nobel Prize is handed out in six categories: physics, chemistry, medicine, literature, economics and peace. The awards are given to those who have made the most important discoveries or inventions in their field, and is considered to be one of most prestigious in the world.
Britannica: Alfred Nobel
Alfred Bernhard Nobel was born October 21, 1833, in Stockholm, Sweden, the fourth son of Immanuel and Caroline Nobel. His invention of dynamite in 1867 established his fame worldwide, and he built more than ninety factories that manufactured explosives and ammunition. In his will of 1895, Nobel created a fund for the awarding of five annual prizes “to those who, during the preceding year, shall have conferred the greatest benefit on mankind.” In 1969, a sixth award in economics was added.
CNN.com: Nobel Centennial 2001
Although it has not been updated in five years, this CNN.com Centennial Special is still worth visiting. The site features the 2001 prize winners with short bios and descriptions of their Nobel Prize winning work, but the best clicks are the Photo Gallery and Video Gallery of past winners such as Marie Curie, Rudyard Kipling, Winston Churchill and Albert Einstein. There is also a video short about Alfred Nobel, the Prize’s benefactor, and a good links section.
Improbable Research: Ig Nobel Prizes
“The Ig Nobel Prizes honor achievements that first make people laugh, and then make them think. The prizes are intended to celebrate the unusual, honor the imaginative — and spur people’s interest in science, medicine, and technology.” Even though the Ig Nobel Prize is not related to the Nobel Prize, I included it here because their website is fun to browse and it provides a glimpse into the real world of science. Some of the research done by this year’s winners includes why woodpeckers don’t get headaches, and why dry spaghetti often breaks into more than two pieces when bent.
