Dear Friend,

I know that time is precious for everyone these days, so I’ll try to keep this update short. The approximate reading time is about 5 minutes. Feel free to reduce your reading time even more by skipping over topics that don’t interest you.

Personal Update. My Personal Update for August is now available.

What’s New. During the month of August, most of the articles added to the site were about computing at the University of Iowa. I encourage you to visit the Documents Page to view the latest updates to the site. Or, simply refer to the article title links in the right column under the Recent Documents heading. Here are a few of the new articles and documents that I’d like to highlight from this past month:

Heart Songs. The Heart Songs selections for August 2011 are now available on iTunes. Using iTunes you can listen to previews that are 1 minute and 30 seconds long. The music of Bob Seger is being featured this month. Unfortunately, Bob (or his record label) are apparently boycotting iTunes, so instead we’re showcasing Sam Morrison’s collection of tribute songs that represent Bob Seger’s greatest hits. You’ll probably agree that these songs sound very close to the originals.

Thanks. I want to thank the global team of volunteers, contributors, and workers “behind the scenes” who help make all this possible. I’m very grateful to the many people who continue to uphold and advance the mission of Resources for Life. Thanks again for your support. Please let me know if there is any way that Resources for Life can serve you better.
