NaNoWriMo Startsjdb tells us "People around the world are pounding on their keyboard towards their goal of 50,000 words by then end of November 30. They will record their word count and post it daily. These writers will battle family, friends, jobs, computer errors, no internet access and their story to get the job done. Their comments, pleas for help and word count will be posted at http://www.nanowrimo.org This year the site says 214,999 writers have signed up to participate. My word count so far? Zero!"
Time Change SundayDaylight saving time ends as we roll back our clocks one hour in most States in the US at 2 AM on Sunday November 3. There is no change in Hawaii, Arizona with exceptions, Midway Atoll, Wake Island, and a small region of Alaska.

Day of the DeadDía de los Muertos. "The Day of the Dead celebrations in Mexico can be traced back to a precolumbian past." November 1 & 2: Day of the Dead or día de los muertos
Five Things ComparedIt is fun to compare. We'll keep updating CNN and USA Today, but this article continues to move down! USA Today does have this feature today. The other three sites auto update, which is nice! USA Today's is the most different in US news. Canada's CBC audio is the most different to US listeners. CNN: http://newday.blogs.cnn.com/2013/11/01/5-things-to-know-for-your-new-day-friday-november-1/?hpt=hp_t2 USA Today: Friday's "5 things to know . http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2013/11/01/five-things-to-know-friday/3329215/ BBC "one minute news" (about 1:30 with ad: video: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/video_and_audio/

Boston Wins World SeriesThe series lasted six games. The Boston Red Sox took an early lead and went on to win the series 4-2. David Ortiz tied the record for intentional walks and won MVP. Over a week ago, we brought you our archeological discovery of the World Series Cup!!! lol No one cared.

War of the Worlds turns 75See part of the videoed news conference with Orson Welles following the radio broadcast from 50 years ago. ABC has a nice follow up video too, followed by great hoaxes.http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/headlines/2013/10/the-war-of-the-worlds-75th-anniversary-could-we-be-duped-today/

ObamacareWe found a one stop news source. We think it works better than just grabbing stories. Think 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/
The ComicsThe Comics change Daily! Sadly the second site does not present as much initial content with the editorial cartoons. http://news.yahoo.com/comics/ http://www.gocomics.com/
The Supreme Court Current SessionHere is a search to keep up with news from John Roberts and the Supremes! http://www.bing.com/search?q=news%2C+Supreme+Court
Storms and EarthquakesWe 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.
