      four new articles:

      Book Review: Republic of Drivers (http://newcolonist.com/br-
      One sometimes wonders how it is that the car became a sacrament in
      the United States, far more than in any other country, and how
      driving became a major ritual for ceremonializing the doctrine of

      A Brush of Genius (http://newcolonist.com/lenfest_plaza.html)
      Even though it is an overcast December afternoon, many people are
      enjoying the newest reclaimed public space in Philadelphia. Lenfest
      Plaza, located just outside the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts
      (PAFA) and one block north of City Hall, is already a favorite open-
      air gathering space for students, tourists and center city workers,
      as a place to take a break outside all year long, without the noise
      or smell of the car and bus traffic of the streets.

      Millcraft Industries and the Urban Redevelopment Authority of
      Pittsburgh announced recently that Millcraft will build a 15 story
      building on the south side of Forbes Avenue between Market Square and
      Wood Street in downtown Pittsburgh. In this building there will be a
      175 room limited-service hotel, about 25,000 square feet of office
      space, ground level retail and restaurants, and onsite parking. This
      would seem to be great news for one of the last remaining blighted
      streets in Pittsburgh's Golden Triangle....

      As well as our many features and services, including hotel
      reservations, worldwide weather, realtime currency exchange rates,
      our extensive blog, and hundreds of articles and reviews in our
      massive archives!

      Happy New Year!
