Download the New Web Services Package 1.0 Beta
Wolfram Research is inviting users to try its new Web
Services Package, which integrates Mathematica and
web services by letting a user call web services from Mathematica. Web
Services Package gives Mathematica users access to additional data and
processing services, such as geographical data, financial data, remote
calculation, language translation, file conversion, and Wolfram Research
online information services, from directly within Mathematica.

South Africa's National Disaster Atlas Uses webMathematica Technology
to Fight Catastrophic Events
In South Africa, disasters such as droughts, floods, and famines are common occurrences.
While emergency supplies are
often available, they are useful only if government officials can anticipate when and where
disaster will strike. Dusan Sakulski, System
Integrator and Coordinator of the National Disaster Management Centre of South Africa,
is using webMathematica to help predict the time, location, and intensity of
natural disasters. For more information, view the full story at www.wolfram.com/news/disasteratlas.html.
Veteran Mathematica User Steven Skiena Is Showing the Fun of
Steven Skiena, the original developer of Combinatorica is anticipating the release
of his most recent book,
Computational Discrete Mathematics: Combinatorics and Graph Theory with Mathematica.
Co-authored with Sriram Pemmaraju,
a fellow computer scientist and Combinatorica developer, the book is "the definitive guide
to Combinatorica." Experimenting with Combinatorica provides an exciting
new way to learn combinatorics and graph
theory. Says Skiena, "We want to show the fun of discrete mathematics." For more information,

Art Inspires a Lesson in Calculus
Croatian math and computer science teacher Maja Cvitkovic is not content
with the same old math lessons. So when she had the opportunity
to use Mathematica with a group of teenage students at a workshop
in Zagreb, she devised a lesson that gave them a chance to play. The
assignment: Create a picture using random dots. More information is
available at www.wolfram.com/news/croatiacalculus.html.
