WisBlawg - From the UW Law Library: Libraries & Librarians Archives
Dodge County Circuit Court Judge Steven Bauer contacted me this morning to let me know he'd linked to WisBlawg on his blog, To Speak the Truth . It's quite a nice post about his positive experiences with libraries and librarians as the following excerpt illustrates: I love libraries and librarians. I was going to write "good librarians", but after using libraries my entire life, I can't remember a bad experience with a librarian. (I find that statement to be quite incredulous, even to myself, understanding the bell curve of human behavior and performance in any profession.) I am almost always impressed ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Immigrants transforming Darlington, dairy industry
Police Sgt. Antonio Ruesga came to Darlington to build ties with its rapidly growing Hispanic population, which initially was hesitant to interact with police. Now, immigrants report crimes just as readily as other residents. DARLINGTON, Wis. -- Before Sgt. Antonio Ruesga arrived in Darlington a decade ago, the police could barely communicate with the few Spanish-speaking immigrants who had come to work at local dairies. Today, while tensions mount in Arizona and elsewhere over how to curb illegal immigration, Ruesga, who is Hispanic and fluent in Spanish, has created an atmosphere of trust among police and local immigrants. ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
This appeal concerns a negligence claim by Watertown Tire Recyclers against an insurance agent for the agent's alleged failure to procure a policy that protected Watertown against a substantial and anticipated risk, a stockpile tire fire. More specifically, Watertown alleged that the agent negligently procured a policy with a broad pollution exclusion that resulted in a denial of coverage after a serious accidental tire fire. After determining that the policy would have precluded coverage regardless of the alleged negligence, the circuit court granted summary judgment in favor of the agent. We affirm. ¶ 2 Watertown ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Where can I find published case law? - Yahoo! Answers
Well, I checked all my favorite sources plus Wisconsin State Law Library and Univ of Wisconsin Law Library and it seems Wisconsin appellate court opinions prior to 1995 are not online. Do you have access to a law library? Often county law libraries will allow the public to use their resources and the librarians will be more than happy to pull the cases for you. Also, law school libraries will often be glad to locate cases for you.

Google Answers: A brief history of Email
Hello again Joel, Below you will find the results of my research regarding the history of Email. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- ?Despite common belief, e-mail actually predates the Internet; in fact, existing e-mail systems were a crucial tool in creating the Internet. E-mail started in 1965 as a way for multiple users of a time-sharing mainframe computer to communicate. Although the exact history is murky, among the first systems to have such a facility were SDC's Q32 and MIT's CTSS. E-mail was quickly extended to become network e-mail, allowing ...
