I’ve always been a bit phobic about upgrades, so I am happy to announce that my BarbaraFeldman.com blog has been
successfully upgraded to the latest version of Movable Type. The only reason I bothered was because I wanted a plugin (that wouldn’t run on the old version) to cross-post my Twitter feed directly on my blog.
What’s Twitter? Its a fairly new micro-blogging platform that distributes 140-character answers to the question
"What are you doing now?" I’ve written a bit more about Twitter (including listing a few good articles that go
into more depth) over at Internet Tip of the Week : Twitter Wants to Know What You Are Doing.
You can join my Twitter feed at http://twitter.com/barbarafeldman, or you can simply follow along at BarbaraFeldman.com, where my latest tweet will show up in the upper right hand corner and in the Twitter category.
See ya on the Net,
Barbara J. Feldman

Jonas Salk Printable (** for premium members only)
Dr. Jonas Salk (October 28, 1914 – June 23, 1995) was an American research biologist who studied immunity, influenza, AIDS and polio. He is best known, however, for the development of the polio vaccine that has nearly eradicated the threat of polio in the world today.
Academy of Achievement: Jonas Salk Profile
Jonas Salk, M.D. was inducted into the Academy of Achievement in 1976. Visit the Academy mini-site for an overview of his accomplishments, a biography, a photo gallery, and a 1991 interview. Jonas Salk was still a medical student when he began to look for answers to questions left unanswered in classroom lectures about viruses. "In 1955 Salk’s years of research paid off. Human trials of the polio vaccine effectively protected the subject from the polio virus. When news of the discovery was made public on April 12, 1955, Salk was hailed as a miracle worker."
Jonas Salk Educational Services
The Jonas Salk Center, representing the family of Jonas Salk, offers free educational material for

Topics covered are Legacy of Jonas Salk, Biographical Sketch, Historical Importance of the Killed Poliovirus Vaccine, Student Interviews: FAQ, and Recommended Reading.
PBS: Science Odyssey: On the Edge: Paralyzing Polio
What does every comic book need? An evil villain and a bigger-than-life hero. This online comic book (from PBS: Science Odessey) based on the true story of Dr. Salk, has them both. "Polio, the evil virus which threatens to steal the use of limbs and lungs of children and adults everywhere, is on the verge of being eradicated, thanks to the work of Dr. Jonas Salk of the University of Pittsburgh, who has just announced the development of his new vaccine."
