Wallah haramat they are doing this to Iraq. The destruction is horrendous, even an ice cream shop didnt get spared. I cant wait for whoever is doing this to be caught and imprisoned for good. Iraqi people want to live in peace. Innocent people are dying and no one is doing anything about it. God it makes me soooooooo pissed off.

Rose where is this explosion exactly?what street is it?and do you know what was it?I mean was it a suicide car bombing, the idiots, when will these "mujahideen criminals" leave us alone.....May God be with you and all innocent Iraqis...

Take care....

Why should a commercial site be targeted?

Simple. This was a tactic used by criminals in Northern Ireland to raise funds for the IRA or themselves. You ask a businessman to pay you money on a regular monthly basis to guarantee his business won't be bombed. If he fails to pay or tells the authorities about their visit. Boom! It's called a protection racket.

I think it was Eric who compared the rebuilding of Iraq with the rebuilding of Japan, Germany and Korea after those conflicts but they all ended with the signing of agreements to end hostilities with no insurgents to hamper them.

Iraq is very similar to Northern Ireland, only ten times worse, which is why the British army have a very different approach to the Americans in situations such as this. Winning hearts and minds and convincing Iraq's we are there to help them is the key. Having said that two British soldiers were killed today in an ambush in Basra. Somebody saw who fired that RPG and once they give that information to the police the British army won't use helicopter gunships to knock on the perpetrators door. When the locals see the culprits arrested and handcuffed they see law and order working.

Rose, the content of your diary reaches far more people than reply to your experiences living in this terrible situation. That is why it is so important that you keep this diary going and don't let the support for rebuilding the peace dry up. A British schoolgirl influenced Tony Blair to get rid of Saddam Hussein perhaps you could also drop him an email outlining YOUR hopes and fears for Iraq, no Tony ;-)

Computer News
In search of the best


Ask.com, Answers.com outperform more popular Web engines

Even as they become more savvy, the Internet's leading search engines still sometimes bog down in befuddlement when a specific kernel of knowledge is sought.

Hoping to fill the gap, Answers.com (from GuruNet Corp.) and Ask.com (from Ask Jeeves Inc.) have pledged to provide more adept responses to vexing but straightforward questions about history, science, geography, pop culture and sports.


Both search engines aim to provide a correct answer explicitly at the top of a search's first results page -- or with a highly placed link to a Web page that contains the information.

Their mission raises a question: Just how knowledgeable are these search engines?

To find out, I staged a very unscientific test consisting of questions culled from a recent edition of Trivial Pursuit.

My mock game pitted the avowed prowess of Answers.com and Ask.com against the Internet's most widely used search engines -- Google, Yahoo and Microsoft Corp.'s MSN.

The findings: Answers.com and Ask.com appear to be a small step ahead of Google and noticeably smarter than Yahoo and MSN when dealing with such esoteric questions as "What glass beads are created when a meteorite strikes the Earth's surface?"

Both Answers.com and Ask.com guided me to the correct answer (tektites) with the first link on the results page -- an aptitude that both sites displayed with 10 of the 20 questions posed in the theoretical game. When they didn't get the answer with the very first link in response to some questions, both search engines generally came through within the next two links.

Although they performed similarly in our game,-Answers.com and Ask.com rely on different formulas.

Answers.com relies on a combination of Google's search engine and human editors who have stoked its database with answers to frequently asked questions that they've obtained by poring through reference materials.

Ask.com, part of a Web family about to be acquired by e-commerce conglomerate InterActiveCorp for $2 billion, has devised a fully automated approach that fishes through the Internet's sea of information.

Although they are superior to the other search engines at this task, Answers.com and Ask.com rarely realized their ultimate goal -- making things as clear-cut as possible by summarizing the correct response at the very top of the results page so it wouldn't be necessary to click on a link and peruse another Web site.

Ask.com spit out a concise "Web answer" in just two of the 20 questions, while the only time that Answers.com delivered was when I sought the definition of "googol." (It's the number one followed by 100 zeros.)

Google, which drew its name from that mathematical term, fared reasonably well in the competition. The Internet's most popular search engine came up with the correct answer on the first link in eight of the 20 questions (including the one about tektites). That's something Yahoo did just five times and MSN only twice.

None of the sites was omniscient. Answers.com, Ask.com and Google each drew blanks on three questions (I considered it a miss if a link to the correct answer didn't appear within the first three pages of results). Yahoo and MSN each whiffed on six questions.

There was only one question that baffled all the search engines, "Who was the first Cuban defector to play in Major League Baseball?" Although they all contained references to him in their indexes, none of the search engines could figure out it was Rene Arocha, a pitcher who first signed with the St. Louis Cardinals in the early 1990s.


Though it lagged behind the other search engines in this competition, MSN looked brilliant on one question that stumped all the other search engines: What company was acquired in the biggest leveraged buy-out deal of all time? The first link on MSN's results page took me to a site that correctly listed RJR Nabisco.

The test also revealed the disadvantage of depending on search engines -- they sometimes point to sites with conflicting answers.

This occurred most frequently when I asked how many viewers watched the series finale of the TV show M*A*S*H. The search engines pointed to Web sites that variously listed the audience at anywhere from 105.9 million to nearly 125 million. Trivial Pursuit lists the answer as 121.6 million.

To paraphrase M*A*S*H's theme song, searching for online answers still isn't painless.

I need to continue to plug away at car insurance nationwide. If you have the energy swing by http://www.auto-insurance-deals.com/. I try to update my site weekly (most of the time)and maybe you will see something you like. I already grabbed your URL and put it in my favorites. If you do not mind I will be back again. Mint job!
