Around July 24, 2001, a new email virus nicknamed the SirCam worm started making its way around the internet. A variant of the Anna Kournikova/ILOVEYOU viruses, this one also uses a couple of new techniques that make it more interesting. Instead of just searching through an address book for new email addresses to which to send itself, it also combs throught the documents in the browser cache to search for email addresses on web sites that the victim has recently visited. In addition, instead of sending itself over and over using the same file (such as the picture of Anna Kournikova), it picks a random document off of the victim's hard drive, inserts itself into that document, and then uses that document as the attachment for its next round of emails.
As a web site owner, I have received about 10 of these things in the last day. They are harmless to me because I use a Mac, but what is fascinating is that I can open them up in a text editor and see the contents of the document that was hijacked to be the carrier. A lot of times the document is empty, but I have received a few so far that contain actual text. Just for fun, I am going to post the text contents of any documents I received due to the SirCam worm on this page.
America's unique gift to mankind has been the dream of a land in which life should be fuller for everyman. It's a dream that has attracted tens of millions to the U.S. It has been more than a dream of better living. It has been a dream of being able to attain maximum growth as an individual, unrestrained by handicaps which had arisen in older nations where the lines between social classes had become fixed.
Man's hunger, divided to serve both his physical and his spiritual needs, created on the continent of North America a civilization that was similarly divided because it offered tempting satisfactions on both the higher and the lower levels. The chance to create a new order that would reflect divine goodness was made to seem possible by an infinity of material res- ources which could as well feed the lowest desires.
Perhaps in the beginning of American civilization can be found a clue to the incongruous mixture of native idealism and crude materialism that produced in later years a literature of beauty, irony, affirmation, and despair. The violence of twentieth century American literature owes much to the energy and the contrasts in its cultural origins. Essentially, this phrase (American Dream) represents the romantic enlar- gement of the possibilities of life on a level at which the material and the spiritual have become inextricably confused. But they seldom content with a merely material lifeonly when it is animated by an ideal purpose, it seems real to them. This is, in fact, what we mean by the American Dream.
Then the discovery of the new world gave substance to the old myth, and suggested the realization of it on actual earth, America became the place where the religious prophecies of Isaiah and the republican ideals of Plato might be realized.
Most of the big shore places were closed now and there were hardly any lights except the shadowy moving glow of a ferryboat across the Sound. And as the moon rose higher the inessential houses began to melt away until gradually I became aware of the old island here that flowered once for Dutch sailorsí eyes-a fresh, green breast of the new world. Its vanished trees, the trees that had made way for Gatsbyís house, had once pandered in whispers to the last and greatest of all human dreams; for a transitory enchanted moment man must have held his breath in the presence of this continent, compelled into aesthetic contemplation understood nor desired, face to face for the last time in history with something commensurate to his capacity for wonder.
Instead of being the warm center of the world, the Middle West now seemed like the ragged edge of the universe-so I decided to go East and learn the bond business. Everybody I knew was in the bond business, so I supposed it could support one more single man. (p.9)
I see now that this has been a story of the West, after all Tom and Gatsby, Daisy and Jordan and I were all Westerners, and perhaps we possessed some deficiency in common which made us subtly unadaptable to Eastern life. (p. 183)
Gatsby never succeeds in seeing through the sham of his world or his acquaintance very clearly. It is of the essence of his romantic American vision that is should lack the seasoned powers of discrimination. But it invests those illusions with its own faith, and thus it discovers its projected goodness in the frauds of its crippled world. The Great Gatsby becomes the acting out of the tragedy of the American vision. It is a vision totally untouched by the sales of values that order life in a society governedby traditional manners.
As I [Nick Carraway] went over to say good-bye I saw that the expression of bewilderment had come back into Gatsby's face, as though a faint doubt had occurred to him as to the quality of his present happiness. Almost five years! There must have been moments event that afternoon when Daisy tumbled short of his dreams not through her own fault, but because of the colossal vitality of his illusion. It had gone beyond her, beyond everything. He had thrown himself into it with a creative passion, adding to it all the time, decking it out with every bright feather that drifted his way. No amount of fire of freshness can challenge what a man can store up in his ghostly heart. (pp. 102-3)
It was all very careless and confused. They were careless people, Tom and Daisythey smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness, or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made. (p. 186)
Two shining arrogant eyes had established dominance over his face and gave him the appearance of always leaning aggressively forward. It was a body capable of enormous leverage a cruel body. His speaking voice, a gruff husky tenor, added to the impression of fractiousness he conveyed. There was a touch of paternal contempt in it, even toward people he liked and there were men at New Haven who had hated his guts. (p. 13)
"I wouldn't ask too much of her", I [Nick] ventured. "You can't repeat the past."
"Can t repeat the past?" he cried incredulously. "Why, of course you can!" He looked around him wildly, as if the past were lurking here in the shadow of his house, just out of reach of his hand. "I'm going to fix everything just the way it was before," he said, nodding determinedly. "She'll see." He talked a lot about the past, and I gathered that he wanted to recover something, some idea of himself perhaps, that had gone into loving Daisy. His life had been confused and disordered since then, but if he could once return to a certain starting place and go over it all slowly, he could find out what that thing was. (p. 117)
"They are a rotten crowd," I shouted across the lawn. "You're worth the whole damn bunch put together." I've always been glad I said that. It was the only compliment I ever gave him, because I disapproved of him from beginning to end. (p. 160)
Nick's mind is conservative and historical, as is his lineage; Gatsby's is radical and apocalypticas rootless as his heritage. Nick is too much immersed in time and reality; Gatsby is hopelessly out of it. Nick can't be hurt, but neither can he be happy. Gatsby can experience ecstasy, but his fate is necessarily tragic. They are generically two of the best types of humanity: the moralist and the radical.
Tom Buchanan and Gatsby represent antagonistic but historically related aspects of America. They are related as the body and the soul when a mortal barrier has risen between them. Tom Buchanan is virtually Gatsby's murder in the end, but the crime that he commits by proxy is only a symbol of his deeper spiritual crime against Gatsby's inner vision.
Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgiastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that's no mattertomorrow will run faster, stretch out our arms further. And one fine morning. So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past. (p. 188)

Dear Human Resources:
Subject: Job Opportunities
I am a recent graduate of MATC with an Associate in Liberal Arts, along with a 1-Year Web Design Certificate. In my final semester, I not only had taken 8 courses, but I also made the Dean's list with a 3.79 GPA. Now that I am out of school, I'm looking forward to new challenges that will use the skills I have gained to their fullest potential.
After reviewing the job opportunities you have posted on your web site. I would like to be considered for a job interview in the position of either an Account Coordinator or a Customer Care Advisor.
In the past, I have been able to bring out the best in my staff, and to increase my stores profit line when the store won the "Best of Madison" in the frozen yogurt division in 1994. I also have held the position of a team leader, managing 4 small departments. There I held weekly team meeting as well as attending monthly team leaders meeting, and met with upper management to report on projections of sales and insure the availability of product to meet growing sales. I also have had the opportunity of being a seasonal employee for Lands' End where I have had a chance to improve on my customer service skills. I take great pride in my ability to work with the customer to resolve any problems that come up in the shortest amount of time, as well as keeping the client updated on the progress that is made.
I have sent my resume along for your consideration.

Special part of Japanese animation
How many adults do they read cartoons or watch animation? We cannot image what they buy a cartoon and watch animation. Most of adults say cartoon and animation is for child. We have had a closed style of thought for a long time when we receive various cultures from other country. As you know our old generation liked pop song more than Korean song when they were young. After time flew, as you feel Korean song was developed more and more and their level is almost equal to pop song level now. The youth of our country is interested in Korean song more than pop song compared with that time.
Old generation is afraid of present pop culture at especially cartoon and animation because they donít know about it. Just they always think those are below the level and no value.
Every country holds in high culture and vulgar culture and has to progress in their culture. Most of person prefers high culture to vulgar culture when they take culture. We have to know vulgar culture is easy to spread the public. However if the public receive various cultures, they overcome them and find their own culture.
U S A, French and Japan etc, was accepted vulgar culture early, so called sex and violence. They have made a work of art better than us since that time. It is why they take possession of a lot of cultures. Human being want to do what someone let them don't allow. It is human nature. Therefore if someone prevent personal seeing vulgar stuff, every person will be hardly interested in it. We received early music and film, which represent pop culture, so nowadays we have a good works and variety of them. However we have to consider cartoon and animation for progress of our pop culture. Look at animation field, how is it?, it's bad. Do you know why? First of all we have to know why U S A which had leaded animation field is gone and Japanese animation conquer number one's place. When we were young, we always watched American animation but now we can find a lot of Internet site about Japanese animation and we know their interest.
Why does the youth of our country go crazy over about Japanese animation? We have to think this situation to make money, to develop our pop culture to know about new generation of Japan and their thought.

NATIONAL TARTAN DAY:
It was a stormy day in Sacramento as many local Scottish organizations celebrated at the Downtown Plaza Piazza Stage. One of many occasional downpours caught the pipe band as they played Scotland the Brave. Fortunately the information tables and the main stage were under cover and did not get wet. Kilwinning was present and we sold some of our cookbooks as well as talked to prospective members. The entertainment was enjoyed by all.
IT ONLY TAKES A MOMENT:
It only takes a moment
To whisper words of praise,
To thank God for the blessings
That decorate your days.
It only takes a moment
To lift someone in prayer
Who needs to be encouraged
And know that God is there.
It only takes a moment
To share a little love
With someone who is lonely
And lift their soul above.
It only takes a moment
To be a friend in need,
To spread a little sunshine
While doing that good deed.
Life can be so complicated
That we forget to see
That it only takes a moment
To be the best that we can be.
The Kilwinning concession booth at the 125th Sacramento Valley Scottish Games turned in a nice profit for our lodge. Overall the games had a decrease in attendance probably due to mild weather and too many events in Northern Ca drawing people in many different directions. Thanks to all who participated by baking or working in the stand. On Thursday, April 19th, 8 ladies baked 25 sheets of shortbread and some empire biscuits. Seventeen ladies showed up on Sat., April 21st, to make currant squares and lemon squares. Everyoneís help was greatly appreciated.
The Past Chief Daughters will hold their next meeting Thursday, June 28, 2001 at 7 p.m. at the home of PCD Janelle Williams.
Mary Jane Richardson will be getting married in June.

LIFE'S LITTLE TRUTHS
Life is change, Growth is optional.
It's never too late, in fiction or in life, to revise.
If you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with a little rain.
Life is like a camel: You can make it do anything except back up.
If you really want to do something, youíll find a way. If you don't, you'll find an excuse.
The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything.

WHO WE ARE
The American Lung Association of Arizona was established in 1912, initially as an organization to assist people with tuberculosis. At that time, Arizona was a haven for people suffering from the disease. Although the focus of the Association has changed since a cure for TB was found, we have remained constant in working toward our mission --- to prevent lung disease and promote lung health.
Today, the American Lung Association of Arizona is working for improvements in three key areas: asthma, air quality, and tobacco control. With the help of our volunteers and the public, we're targeting these areas through research, education, and advocacy.
To reach us, or to learn more about what we're doing (and how you can help!) to achieve our vision of a world free of lung disease, please click on a topic from the list below.

Wishful Thinker (the stream of consciousness handshake)
Hunker down, drive around
With 360 degree AC
Listening to Connells, Replacements, and Toad
Feel the energy man
We feel the energy required to fell a thousand nations
To build railroads and skyscrapers
To walk up to the prettiest girl in school and say "let's rock"
We're kicking back, rewinding songs
Getting to the lyrics that we'll embed into our minds
Until they're more familiar than our favorite colors
And our moms own voices
We'll take the longest day and throw it all away
Cruise the battery
Thinking how our idea of the perfect girl
Was developed through songs, and movies, and situational happenings
That we'll replay in male braggadocio
Do any of you remember the night we sat at Dave's place
A fuzzy, hazy dreamlike night
Where two guitars were playing, and beer and cigarettes
Or the hundreds of other nights, or days, or mornings
Spent in each other's company
Being defined through what we thought were non-defining moments
How to Make a Tire
Redial tires are made from many kinds of raw materials, pigments, chemicals, some 30 different kinds of rubber, cord fabrics, bead wire, etc. Basic rubbers are made from oils, carbon black, pigments, antioxidants, accelerators and other additives. Basic rubbers are manufactured first.
These ingredients are mixed in giant blenders. The many ingredients are blended together into a hot, black gummy compound that will be milled again and again.
Next, the cooled rubber takes several forms. Most often it is processed into carefully identified slabs that will be transported to breakdown mills. These mills feed the rubber between massive pairs of rollers, over and over, feeding, mixing and blending to prepare the different compounds for the feed mills, where they are slit into strips and carried by conveyor belts to become sidewalls, treads or other parts of the tire.
Then, another component is shaped like a hoop. The strands are aligned into a ribbon coated with rubber for adhesion, and then would into loops that are then wrapped together to secure them until they are assembled with the rest of the tire.
Radial tires are pre-shaped into a form very close to their final dimension to make sure the many components are in proper position before the tire goes into the mold.
The tire builder adds now the steel belts that resist punctures and hold the tread firmly against the road. After automatic rollers press all the parts firmly together, the radial tire.
The curing press is where tires get their final shape and tread pattern. The tire is shaped and vulcanized by hot molds like giant waffle irons. The molds are engraved with the tread pattern, the sidewall marking of the manufacturer and those required by law.
Finally, tires are cured at over 300 degrees for 12 to 25 minutes, depending on their size. As the press swings open, the tires are popped from their molds onto a long conveyor that carries them to final finish and inspection.

[ADDRESS, PHONE, AND EMAIL DELETED]
Dear Family and Friends,
On Sunday, October 28, 2001, I will challenge myself to fulfill a long time goal and run 26.2 miles in the Marine Corps Marathon with a group of very special individualsThe Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's TEAM IN TRAINING program.
I am running in honor of Brett [LAST NAME DELETED] of Livingston, New Jersey. Brett (pictured below) was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL) on June 8, 1995, at the age of 8. Brett and his family are happy to report that he has remained in remission for almost three years and is now living the life of a normal teenager. The funds raised for research through TEAM IN TRAINING have helped Brett and will help other adults and children in the area who have leukemia, lymphoma, or a related blood disease. In 1960, the cure rate for ALL was only 4%. Today, largely thanks to research funding, the cure rate for ALL is nearly 80%. This is still unacceptable. The Society strives for the day when 100% of everyone diagnosed will be cured!
My TEAM IN TRAINING goal is to raise at least $2,600 through individual and corporate sponsorships. Would you join my team? Flat gifts are accepted and ANY amount is helpful. Contributions are tax deductible and will further The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's lifesaving programs of research and patient aid. Please make a pledge today. Just use the enclosed sponsor form and stamped envelope, and kindly return by August 1, 2001. Of course, if you need some extra time, we will gladly accept donations after that date.
By making a pledge, you will be part of my TEAM IN TRAINING, and I will take your spirit with me to Washington, D.C. to meet this challenge. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Thank you in advance with heart felt gratitude from Brett, his family, and countless others.

The book I read was The Berenstain Bears in the Wax Museum
It was written by Stan & Jan Berenstain
It was illustrated by Stan & Jan Berenstain
The book was about (talk about the characters) There was a Brother Bear and Mama Bear, Papa Bear, and Cousin Fred. Madame Bearsaud was owner of the Wax Museum. Queen Elizabear she was the Royal Highness. Lady Grizzly was a lady with lots of money. The four Bogg's Brothers and they were the bears that stolen the crown jewels.
In the story (talk about the events in the story). They first got out of school. Then Brother was going to call Fred but Fred got to the phone first. They talked on the phone about what they were going to do for a Great Adventure for the summer. They decided to go the pizza shack for lunch and they met Gramps on the way. Gramps usually invites himself to lunch, but he said he was going to see something new. He wanted to know if they wanted to go the Wax Museum. Brother Bear was tempted to say yes. They went to the Wax Museum but it wasnít open yet and they snuck in. A couple of days later they went back to the Grand Opening of the Wax Museum. There was jewels stolen and Brother Bear and Cousin Fred helped catch the Bogg Brothers.
My favorite part was when. When Brother Bear and Cousin Fred sneaked into the Museum.
You should read this book because. I thought it was a GREAT ADVENTURE!!
Are there any questions?
To whom it may concern:
The land where the house sits is approximately 40 Feet higher than the nearby county road and 60 Feet higher than the swamp. There is no way for this house to flood. It is on the top of one of the highest hills in the area and it has an open basement. If it were to flood, Cleveland, St Peter, and Madison Lake would all be under water before this house would even get damp.
I shopped my loan around and came across this with the other lenders. Some of the land is actually class three wetlands and that is why it shows that it is on a flood plain. I personally took the lenders out to the land and showed them how high the house was and how it is impossible for it to flood. After seeing this they took a few pictures and said that it wont be a problem.
Also there were multiple credit checks when I was building for the following reasons
Shopping my mortgage through different lenders
Establishing a phone connection (requires credit check)
Getting propane fuel for heat (requires credit check)
Rental Equipment for water conditioning (requires credit check)
Please contact me if you have any questions
Update on Test Products

Re: Update on Test Products Available for Window #2 Local Promotional Window
As was described in the Window #2 Local Promotions Planning Materials that were sent to you in September, there are several products on which DAI's Research and Development department have recently conducted research. As you can see from the graph below, several of the sandwiches performed quite well on purchase intent and the overall sandwich rating.
SFAFT and DAI have worked together to review the consumer research and develop the future market test plans for both the Gotta-Have-It test initiative and for individual sandwich promotions. The products above have been categorized into three groupings:
Products NOT Available for Market Tests: The three sandwiches which scored below the control products in the consumer research will not be available for market tests, these are: Steak Patty, Beef Pastrami (Brisket) and Wasabi Steak & Cheese. Also, there are two sandwiches which are being incorporated into the next "Gotta Have It" test (Bistro Melt and Southwest Turkey & Bacon) which are not available as individual promotions.
Products for Which Market Tests WILL Be Established: We are actively seeking markets to test three of the sandwiches which scored well in consumer research: Buffalo Caesar Chicken (which uses the Asiago Caesar sauce instead of a ranch dressing to complement the Franks RedHot Buffalo Sauce), Turkey Pastrami (which is a low-fat sandwich, served heated) and Mediterranean Chicken.
Products for Which Market Tests COULD be Established: There are two additional products that could become market tests: the Pulled Pork sandwich (if a significant degree of interest is expressed) and the Mediterranean BMT (though it scored quite well, R&D is in the process of testing a Red-Wine-Vinaigrette BMT to see if its appeal is similar to the Mediterranean BMT. Results are expected in late-November). If a market wishes to test these products, they should indicate a back-up promotion, in case these products are made unavailable for market tests.
An updated Window #2 Selection Form is attached. As you will note on this revised form, the deadline has been extended to Wednesday, December 5th. If your market has already submitted a selection form and was not interested in the test products listed above, then you do not need to resubmit the form. If you are interested in these products you must submit your form by the deadline date. Any market not submitting their Selection Form by 12/5/01 will receive no promotional materials from SFAFT during Window #2. Please contact [NAME DELETED] at x1391 should you have any questions on this.

Writing Assignment: How would you negotiate between American and French Feminisms? Which makes the most sense to you as a radical or revolutionary way to read literary texts?
It is difficult for me to postulate how I might "negotiate" between American and French feminism. The ties that bind the three authors we were assigned for today's reading are evident, but how one may practice French feminism is complex and eludes my grasp. Instead, I'm going to offer a general summary of my understanding of what constitutes these two distinct feminist communities.
American feminism is interested in how masculine structure oppresses women and explores liberating methods of coexisting within this society or eradicating the structure altogether. Their divergent strategies depend on what they define to be the primary vehicles of women's oppression. This group is politically oriented and is subdivided according to separate affiliations based on race, class (socialist/Marxist), gender (lesbian), and militancy (liberal vs. radical). While liberal feminism seeks equal power for women within established male structures, radical feminists seek to withdraw from male dominated institutions altogether, thus establishing their dissatisfaction with masculine society. Similarly, lesbian feminists also seek to voice their discontent with patriarchy with a wholesale rejection of heterosexuality. American feminist critics have historically approached literature in order to examine when and how women are portrayed, to establish criteria for including female authors into the literary canon, and to examine the historical structures that have prevented women from being published in the past.
On the other hand, French feminism is concerned with how linguistics have structured the world in which women live. While they are not interested in the "politically correct" semantic position that American feminists have embraced, they postulate that language must be challenged and disrupted in order to extract liberation. This movement can occur by acknowledging that there is an "essential" femininity that can be recognized. What unites this form of feminist criticism is the belief that the recognition of feminine discourse, or ecriture feminine, exists within literature as a subtext and occasionally surfaces in the form of disruptions of "masculine" language. This leads to the belief that it is also possible to distinguish between a genuine feminine discourse and other forms of language. French feminists believe that linguistic and psychoanalytic theories can be utilized to analyze and destroy female oppression. What is interesting, and perplexing to me, is the correlation they assert between language and sexuality/sexual orientation.
At this time, American feminism makes more sense to as a way to read texts. Mostly this assertion lies in the fact that I am an American and am familiar with this literary perspective. Radical Feminisms, both American and French, are appealing to me as I relish marginal feminine society and believe that it is superior to masculine society on many levels. Liberal feminism and its belief that women can coexist within dominant culture is also appealing, but fails on many ways. Primarily this failure is situated, as articulated by Kristeva, that women who gain power within the current structure simply embrace the same methods of oppression against which they fought. The classic case of a sheep in wolf's clothing.
I have chosen to write about anxiety and I am going to try and discuss, compare and contrast two theories written about it. To write about it in such way that it can help nurses to get a good understanding for the experience of anxiety that commonly results from injury or illness. I am also going to try to clarify the actions that I as a nurse can implement to help patients cope with it.
I have chosen to focus on the two theories Behavioral approach and Cognitive psychological approach. The first one to be discussed is the behavioral approach. Behaviorists suggest that anxiety is something we are borne with and is shown when we seek explanations for anxiety in
