Health & Human Services Household Products Database

This database links over 10,000 consumer brands to health effects from Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) provided by manufacturers and allows scientists and consumers to research products based on chemical ingredients. The database is designed to help answer the following typical questions:
  •  What are the chemical ingredients and their percentage in specific brands?
  •   Which products contain specific chemical ingredients?
  •   Who manufactures a specific brand? How do I contact this manufacturer?
  •   What are the acute and chronic effects of chemical ingredients in a specific brand?
  •   What other information is available about chemicals in the toxicology-related databases of the National Library of Medicine?

Google revamps Google Images Search

  • Google Images is a search service created by Google that allows users to search the Web for image content.
  • The keywords  for the image search are based on the file name of the image, the link text pointing to the image, and text adjacent to the image.
  • When searching for an image, a thumbnail  of each matching image is displayed.
  • When clicking on a thumbnail, the image is displayed in a frame at the top of the page and the website on which that image was found is displayed in a frame below it.
Up to 1,000 images will now appear on a single page of Google Images Search results, and searchers can get more information about a given image with a thumbnail preview.

Attack of the Internet Ads

You can avoid this problem by regularly updating your programs. Some will let you know when updates are available. Others will not.

The Secunia PSI is a FREE security tool designed to detect vulnerable and out-dated programs and plug-ins which expose your PC to attacks. Attacks exploiting vulnerable programs and plug-ins are rarely blocked by traditional anti-virus and are therefore increasingly "popular" among criminals. 

Secunia PSI can tell you what needs to be updated.
