Search for breweries via Brewery DB's awesome API. Type in an address/city/zip code or just click the map to find breweries.
An attempt to shed some light on how tiled map services work. Click the zoom-in button on the top of the slider 13 times then the "Satellite" link to get a nice view of the friendly confines. Also, tiles, links to tiles and tile boundaries. Tiles.
Compare google maps, bing maps, arcgis.com maps and open street map maps in a single browser window. Try panning and zooming around; all the maps will sync up.
"Animated User-Defined Graphics" or, "Whoa, it's like those maps from those awesome movies!"
Simple app using the New York Times Movie Review search API. Basically this was an excuse to set up a JSON-friendly proxy page.
A "lens" or "x-ray" widget to overlay various maps in a browser. Maps used in this example are from arcgis.com. Source available on Github.
Recent earthquakes via the most used GeoRSS feed on the planet. Yeah I know, you've seen this one a million times. This one's different! Click on an earthquake in the sidebar and you'll see more info about that quake. Huh? That's not different??
Calculate your mile pace. Ideally, this is used to figure out your average mile pace over the course of a run. It's not perfect but it gets the job done. Did I mention I'm a runner?
A simple typing game. Using text from Dr. Seuss (via Project Gutenberg), random text is generated for you to type. Accuracy and words per minute are calculated and displayed.
An entry in the Apps for Califorians contest. Education spending by county.
Display any number of random points on an OpenLayers map. Useful for testing browser performance/user experience with varying numbers of points on the map. Probably best to keep the number of points < 10k. You've been warned ;).
Convenient way to visualize an MLB team's salaries. Uses USA Today's Salary API and Protovis. Love Protovis.
Big time waster. But at least you don't have to go to three different sites. And it's got purple. Boo. Yah. Especially great if you're just a lurker and don't care to vote on anything.
Search YouTube via a map. This one uses YouTube's geo search API. Optionally type in a search term and click the map to search. Click on a link to load that video.
Random jQuery stuff. Since I'm most familiar with dojo, I mess around with jQuery just to see what everybody's so excited about all the time. There's a stopwatch, a background graphic switcher and a simple google font API demo.
Another widget, this one aims to provide easier map navigation. Zoom to a state and then, if desired, zoom to a county in that state. The widget is configurable for any unit of geography. Source availabe on Github.
Compute your race time from an average mile pace. I like to race too.
Back to maps. Click the map and a point is stored in the App Engine data store. Points are deleted every night at midight. Max of 100 points displayed when the map loads.
I couldn't find an example using esri's JS API with an asynchronous geoprocessing task so...I made one. This could have been done with a geometry service but that's not the point...I wanted to show how to handle an async GP service with the JS API.
Another entry in the Apps for Californians contest. Click a point/park and photos from that park are loaded from flickr.

On Thursday, he was backed by the 2012 MVP and Triple Crown winner, Miguel Cabrera, whose two-run homer off Sonny Gray was all the support Verlander needed.

Could you tell me the number for ? http://www.vaimnemaailm.ee/index.php/tegevused 10mg amitriptyline A. About a third of our shops have no loo or running water because we occupy many kiosk type locations, concessions connected to supermarkets or places such as Euston Station. If we can we squeeze in the full facilities but often there is no choice &ndash; we can trade without a loo or not trade at all.

The prime minister, who is not even leader of his own party, keeps a fairly arms-length relationship with the political leaders. This gives his government a semi-technocratic flavour, not vastly dissimilar from the Monti government it replaced.
