Value Line Plus Small & Mid-Cap is available online for Denver Public Library card holders. This new expanded version now offers small & mid-cap information online. Whether you are investigating playing the stock market for the first time or you're an experienced investor, there is something for you here.
The Value Line Investment Survey, published weekly, tracks approximately 1,700 stocks in over 90 industries. Its Timeliness Ranking System ranks stocks on a scale of 1 to 5 for probable market performance over the next 6 to 12 months. The Small & Mid-Cap Survey reports on approximately 1,800 small & mid-cap stocks not included in The Value Line Investment Survey. These mostly small-capitalization stocks are ranked for Performance, Technical Merit, and Safety.
It talks about historic Sanborn Fire Insurance maps that show historical views of Denver and other places. "As buildings changed, the maps were updated with paste-overs.... It's like showing geologic layers of Denver."
Prospector has a new look for keyword searching for an improved searching experience. On the DPL site, direct links to Prospector (such as on the Didn't Find It page) will go to the new search page. If you select any search type other than Keyword, you'll go back to the "classic" interface. Prospector's Keyword search is similar to the power of DPL's new catalog:
Single search box to search all fields
Powerful relevance ranking
Facets to filter by format, language, year, location and other elements
Format limiting has not been possible before in Prospector. Now you can limit to DVDs or any other format. Use the Keyword search to enter the title or any combination of words, authors, subjects, etc. On the results list, use the "Refine by" list to limit to DVD/Videos, Books or any other format.
Music Online and all of the Library's streaming music collections now offer Send-to-Mobile functionality. What this means is that you can now send an audio track, album, or playlist from our streaming collections to your mobile device to listen to later. The item that you send stays on your device for 48 hours.
Go to Music Online or any of our streaming music databases and look for a cell phone icon ("Send-to-Mobile") next to each track, album, or playlist. Wherever you see that icon you can click it to obtain a “shortlink” to send and enable playback on your mobile device.
Healthcare.gov is now available to help you understand the new Affordable Care Act. Learn what's changing and when, and find insurance options to meet your needs.
When you're looking for more general information about your health, try the Library's Health resources - found under the Research tab. They are a great way to search for health information. Check the DPL Health Site to learn how to research health topics. Be sure to check out MedlinePlus! It is an easy-to-use service of the National Library of Medicine, and new resources are added daily.
Wednesday, June 23, 2010: What a day this has been in sports! World Cup Soccer saw two crucial games played simultaneously. Later the Colorado Rockies come back in the bottom of the 9th. First, soccer: USA v. Algeria and England v. Slovenia. If USA wins, we advance to the next round. If England wins, then USA has to win to advance. A tie (OK, a draw) is not enough. That's why the games are played simultaneously.
Double the tension for everyone involved, because everyone knows how the other game is going. England scores early, so now there is real pressure for USA to score. USA has chance after chance to score and they keep missing! Then, miracle of miracles, the ball goes in!! But no, denied again. Referee says no goal - who knows why, and we learned earlier this week that the referees don't have to give a reason. Time is running out and hope is dwindling.
When I find interesting articles or news items, I save them. Back in the day, I'd snip articles from newspapers and magazines (if they were my own!) or make photocopies. I had a huge mess of papers - important (or just interesting) articles and tidbits that I may not ever need, but didn't want to lose.
These days, there are better ways to go about it. If I find an interesting article online, I look for "ShareThis," "Bookmark," or an email button so I can send the article to myself. The ShareThis button - used on this site and many others - has a ton of options, so you can email or post to your Facebook, Twitter, delicious or just about any other account you can think of. In the catalog, it's called "Bookmark" and has similar options.
