2. Google news – google takes public data including the OECD Factbook, World Bank statistics, US Census data, and Eurostat tables. You specify a data range, and Google will generate a line chart, bar chart, map or bubble chart http://www.google.com/publicdata/home Hint – on the google search results page, select the “+ Show options” link at the top. This expands to show you a wide range of filtering tools. One that is worth looking at lets you see only those sites you’ve recently visited, or just the sites you haven’t clicked through yet. (“Visited pages” and “Not yet visited”) If you have been trying a number of search strategies and feel like you are running in circles, clicking the “Not yet visited” option may help you find what you are looking for – www.websearchpacific.com
