Our Sports SearchesIt is time to catch up on the other sports activity going on, so here are several searches for the latest news on:
Our SearchesWith so much going on in the world we thought we'd try a few new searches over hot button issues and international locations that stay in the news from day to day that interest us.

A FEW ONGOING SEARCHES AND STORIESCatch up on the Ancient World http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/archives/ancient-world/ Obamacare We like our one stop news source. They keep it updated. We think it works better than just grabbing stories and we will keep it! This will likely remain a constant news attack point until January's budget talks take front stage, center again: http://www.cbsnews.com/feature/obamacare/ Storms and Earthquakes We created a few weather searches so we - and our readers - could keep up on the latest devastation news happening too often these days around the world. We may play with our search parameters. It doesn't seem to be sorting the stories very well. Typhoons:

Music VideosThis may or may not be a change, but we like it. Bing threw us one point into our Bing points treasury for clicking on songs of Rhianna, but she is not our cup of tea, so we used their form for a few artists we do like. This feature will expand. I may have to set it up by styles and types. Looks like a music page is coming! Paul McCartney John Lennon Pat Benetar Usher Peter, Paul and Mary Johnny Cash Taylor Swift Blake Shelton Carrie Underwood
