Along with Atlanta and Dallas, Miami is hailed as one of major cities of the "New South," meaning that it is an expanding, progressive Southern city with a growing global influence.

This has contributed to building Miami's vivacious music and club scene, considered by many to be the liveliest in the country. If you're clueless about where to go .......

Once embedded in a computer, it can wreak havoc on the system’s performance while gathering your personal information. Fortunately, unlike viruses and worms, spyware programs do not usually self-replicate.

Website Traffic The Series -- Use Keywords In Page Titles
It is recommended to use keywords in page titles itself. This title tag is different from a Meta tag, but it's worth considering it in relation to them. Whatever text one places in the title tag (between the and portions) will appear in the title bar of browsers when they view the web page. Some browsers also append whatever you put in the title tag by adding their own name, as for example Microsoft's Internet Explorer or OPERA.
The actual text you use in the title tag is one of the most important factors in how a search .......

Astronomy The Series -- The Amazing Hubble
In the history of modern astronomy, there is probably no one greater leap forward than the building and launch of the space telescope known as the Hubble. While NASA has had many ups and downs, the launch and continued operation of the Hubble space telescope probably ranks next to the moon landings and the development of the Space Shuttle as one of the greatest space exploration accomplishments of the last hundred years.
An amazing piece of astronomy trivia that few people know is that in truth, only about ten percent of the universe is visible using conventional methods .......

Heathkit where did they go
06-02-2021 We see nothing new as of this month.
05-02-2021 Don't look for or expect anything new from Heathkit, they continue to just coast along, with nothing new or changing. It has been 8 months since the Precision RF Meter - HM-1002 kit went into the manufacturing phase, with no shipments yet??
04-02-2021 Their status remains the same as last month, nothing new.
03-02-2021 Their status remains the same as last month, nothing new.
02-02-2021 Their status remains the same as last month, nothing new.
01-02-2021 Looking thru their site, they still have HM-1002 power meter in pre-order and a newly added adroid app and a parallel port adapter for micro-controller programming..
12-02-2020 Looking thru their site, still nothing new found.
11-02-2020 Nothing new to report.
10-02-2020 The only kits of any consequence are the GC-1006 Clock Kit currently available and the RF Meter - HM-1002 kit, which is still in pre-order. It looks like it will be many years down the road before you see any new real kits from Heathkit that aren't in pre-order for 4 or 5 years or more!
09-02-2020 Pre-orders for the Precision RF Meter - HM-1002 kit are now closed. They have entered the manufacturing phase, this is the only new news for now.
08-02-2020 Their Precision RF Meter - HM-1002 kit is still on pre-order. A long time to wait and still waiting. Nothing has changed I'm sorry to say.
07-02-2020 Another month and there is nothing new to report.
06-02-2020 Another month and there is nothing new to report.
05-02-2020 Another month and there is nothing new to report.
04-02-2020 Another month and there is nothing new to report.
03-02-2020 There is nothing new to report.
02-02-2020 Still a delay in receiving the GC-1006 Clock Kit. and the RF Meter Kit. From what I can gather, Heathkit is a part time enterprise. Very little on there site and the first new Radio kit was a disappointment and not worthy of the Heathkit name.
01-02-2020 Still a delay in receiving the GC-1006 Clock Kit.
12-02-2019 It looks like there are delays in receiving their new GC-1006 Most Reliable Clock Kit.
11-02-2019 No new kits but they have added a number of clean pre-owned kits at fair prices.
10-02-2019 Their RF Meter HM-1002 is still on pre-order and essentially nothing new.,
09-02-2019 Only thing new is tee shirts have been added to their line up.
08-02-2019 I keep hoping and looking for more new kits, but none on the horizon.
07-02-2019 Once again their site shows nothing new.
06-02-2019 Once again their site shows nothing new.
05-02-2019 Once again their site shows nothing new.

03-02-2019 Checking their site, looks like nothing new.
02-02-2019 Looks like they have no new kits and no new parts listed. They do talk about new SM (surface mount ruler kits) coming soon
01-02-2019 Reports have the GC-1006 clock kit as a good value for the $99.95 price tag, and a good kit to get back into kit building. At least some good news from kit builders and Heathkit!
12-02-2018 They have added an antenna kit to their current line. The AN-P2L pipe antenna kit, which sells for 149.95. Other than that it is pretty much the same this month.
11-02-2018 October shows the same as October.
10-02-2018 October shows the same as September.
09-02-2018 Checking in on their website, shows nothing new to talk about. Hopefully the few kits they currently have for sale are worth the cost??
08-02-2018 Things have settled in, and the only new item is a magnifying loop. That is it for this month.
07-02-2018 They have added an active ruler kit, which looks to be a good SMD starter kit but highly over priced and a SMD soldering kit that is over priced also, to their lineup.
06-02-2018 This month sees no change since last month.
05-02-2018 A new kit has been added to their line up, the GC-1006 a digital clock kit with a solid case - cost is $99.95.

12-02-2017 They have another new kit the GC-1006 clock kit, it costs $99.95.
11-02-2017 They may have more kits on the drawing board but it will probably be some time before we see them.
10-02-2017 Looks like this latest kit will be it for awhile.
09-02-2017 A new kit, the HM-1002 rf power monitor. Available late summer 2017. Cost $575.00..
08-02-2017 And again no real change.
07-02-2017 Once again no real change.
06-02-2017 No change since last month.
05-02-2017 They have made no more advancement in the new kit area. I suspect it will be some time before we see a new kit from them, I hope I'm wrong.
04-02-2017 We are hopeful, that something new is in the works.
03-02-2017 Nothing to add as of this date.
02-02-2017 Nothing to add as of this date.
