Extractions: In October of 1996 the state human service directors announced the availability of Innovation Recognition Awards of $1,000 to celebrate the past successes of MPCBs in systems reform activities and Innovation Support Grants to support innovation activities consistent with the principles of systems reform. A combined total of fifty-seven award and grant submissions were received, totaling nearly $400,000 in requested funds. From these submissions, twenty-one awards and thirteen grants were selected, exemplifying the criteria of innovation and demonstration of principles of systems reform. Many of the proposals not selected due to funding constraints also were of fine quality and indicated that communities around the state are engaged in serious attempts to reform their systems. A listing of 1997 award and grant recipients, with a brief description of the award or grant submission is attached. IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS CONCERNING THIS MATERIAL OR NEED GENERAL INFORMATION on Putting It Together With Michigan Families use: PIT Helpline (517) 335-7904, or directly call the contact person listed on the attachment for each innovation grant or award.

Information Please! http://www.infoplease.com The search feature at Information Please combines all the resources of the encyclopedia, dictionary, and several almanacs for students researching current events, statistics, facts, and historical records. Different search levels and special features make it easy for students to find exactly what they are looking for. http://www.kodak.com/edu/lessonPlans/lessonPlan.shtml Looking for an easy way ot integrate photography concepts into your curriculum? Look no further than Kodak's rich online collection of units and activities. Every grade and discipline is addressed here. Fantastic sight..great photos. http://www.ajkids.com Ask Jeeves for Kids is a search engine alternative that should be considered for every web-surfing classroom. At this site, users don't have to sort through hundreds of matches. Also students won't run across sites with inappropriate content because Ask Jeeves for Kids accesses only "g-rated" information. Unlike most search engines, this one allows the user to enter search criteria as a question. For example: "What do butterflies eat?". After the initial search criteria entered, the site responds with its own short list of questions which help the user confirm the search. The user then selects the best corresponding question and Ask Jeeves for Kids takes him or her directly to the site with the most appropriate answer.

Extractions: Since FY 1994 one of the goals of the HPCC Program has been to address the National Challenges, fundamental applications with broad and direct impact on the Nation's competitiveness and the well-being of its citizens. These Challenges rely on the computing, communications, and information infrastructure technologies developed by the Program and in many cases also on development of Grand Challenge applications. Two of the National Challenge applications described below, Digital Libraries and Electronic Commerce, are fundamental enabling applications that will be used by many of the other National Challenges. Digital Libraries Wide use of library information requires both the information itself and convenient access methods. The past year has seen unprecedented growth in the amount of information available electronically and user access to it. This growth has resulted from several developments, some key ones of which were either funded by the HPCC Program or were begun by HPCC agencies prior to the creation of the Program and continued since then. They include: The Internet and its successful exponential growth (described in Section II.1.)

Lutchen Medical College of Ohio Dan Olson is the chief of the Pulmonary Division of the Department of Medicine and a professor in the Engineering School at the University of Toledo. He has conducted extensive research related to airflow in the airways of the lung; including aerosol propagation, sound generation, interaction of airway walls to flow, and bronchial epithelial cell responses to dosimetry of inhaled materials. He has evaluated the relation of aerodynamics to clinical airway function and Pulmonary Function Tests. He is interested also in the physics of mucus flow in the airways and the geometry of the airways as related to aerodynamics and function. His interests extend to the microvascular blood fluid mechanics and interaction with endothelial cells and vasoreactivity. He has pursued the basic fluid mechanics of internal flows with high degree of secondary flow (i.e., flow at entrance to curves, flow in bifurcations).
Extractions: Andrew S. Patrick Communications Research Centre, Ottawa Imagine a new Internet service where users can see and hear each other over the network in real time. Imagine that this service lets users talk, debate, share information, be entertained, and learn. These users can be located anywhere in the world and their picture and voice will be transmitted instantly. The users can come together in pairs or small groups for intimate conversations, or they can form very large groups, numbering in the thousands, to witness an important event. Dream that this new service is free, once the users are connected to the Internet, using software technology that is readily available for all modern computer systems. Finally, imagine that the service does not place astronomical loads on the Internet as more and more users learn to enjoy it. The "MBone" is defined as the portion of the Internet that has implemented these developments, and it is growing every day (Kumar, 1996). It is likely that this new service will have a very large impact on the Internet and how it is used, perhaps as large as the impact of the World Wide Web (see Mark Weiser's forward to Kumar, 1996). Thus, the MBone may be the next "killer application" for the Internet.

Extractions: on the Implications of the Digital Age "What if you took the Internet, not just as a technical infrastructure for enabling business, which I think it certainly will be, but as an organizational model for how to manage a business?" C oordination is managing dependencies between activities. With these words Tom Malone, professor of Information Systems at MIT's Sloan School of Management, set the stage for his life's work investigating the nature of coordination in complex systems and the impact of information technology on how people work together. Malone's work draws on a variety of disciplines including computer science, organization theory, management science, economics, linguistics, and psychology. A pivotal focus is to examine coordination structures in very different kinds of systemsdistributed computer systems, human organizations, and insect colonies have all served as a basis for Malone's investigations. Malone has asserted that "relentless improvements in information technology continue to reduce the costs of communication by a factor of 10 every few years." For this reason understanding what new forms of organization will emerge from our electronically connected world is central to his work.
