Welcome to Cuil—the world’s biggest search engine. The Internet has grown. We think it’s time search did too.
The Internet has grown exponentially in the last fifteen years but
search engines have not kept up—until now. Cuil searches more pages on
the Web than anyone else—three times as many as Google and ten times as
many as Microsoft.
Rather than rely on superficial
popularity metrics, Cuil searches for and ranks pages based on their
content and relevance. When we find a page with your keywords, we stay
on that page and analyze the rest of its content, its concepts, their
inter-relationships and the page’s coherency.
Then we offer you helpful choices and suggestions until you find the
page you want and that you know is out there. We believe that analyzing
the Web rather than our users is a more useful approach, so we don’t
collect data about you and your habits, lest we are tempted to peek.
With Cuil, your search history is always private.
Cuil is an old Irish word for knowledge. For knowledge, ask Cuil.Source: http://www.cuil.com/info/

"We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to Create a secure
R&D facility to explore the principles of clean free energy such as
Zero Point Energy (ZPE) and bring this to the open market for ALL to use."
More details from petition creator: Create a secure R&D facility to explore the principles of clean
free energy such as Zero Point Energy (ZPE) and bring this to the open
market for ALL to use. Employee a team of scientists and engineers and
produce a device which could be implemented into our society in about 5
years. The cost for this R&D would roughly require £500m in funds
and we could have something viable to use in homes, buildings and
transportation systems, thus eliminating fossil fuels forever.
The possibilities for this new energy are endless and could provide us
with a quantum leap in having clean, cheap and decentralised energy for
the whole world, thus eliminating poverty and restoring the
The west awoke in 2006 to the vast economic, political and social
implications of climate change - and realised that it presented as many
opportunities as threats to humanity.
Interesting, I had no idea such petition existed (I would have signed it myself :-). Vlad.
