Signs of Life Return to 911 Ground Zero

Signs of life are returning to the site of the 9/11 attacks, as trees were planted today in what is morphing into a wonderful memorial to those who lost their lives at the terrorist attack.  The memorial park was designed by Israeli-American architect Michael Arad.  The trees planted today at Ground Zero are white swamp oak trees, which are 25 feet tall right now, but will grow to an estimated 80 feet tall.

Those trees will be able to hold up to the harsh New York winters, and will be irrigated by a complex underground system. There’s still a lot of work to be done at ground zero, but it’s a start to a beautiful memorial.

The controversy lies with Park51, a mosque some 300 yards from Ground Zero.  The 13 story Islamic community center has created an uproar by those who think that it is insensitive to build an Islamic center so close to ground zero.

      I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

    19. Yeah bookmaking this wasn’t a risky determination great post! .

    20. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
