In an effort to increase our range of communication, we have created an RSS newsfeed that
anybody can subscribe to in order to stay up to date on our work. If you are already familiar with RSS, you may access
our newsfeed at the link below. If you are not familiar with RSS but are interested in learning about it, please read
our brief description below to see if you might find it useful to you.

What is RSS?
RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication", and is a means by which information such as news updates or stories may be
stored at a centralized location on a website. When a user subscribes to that site's RSS newsfeed, the user will be able to
receive news updates automatically via an application without having to visit the site itself. The RSS newsfeed will provide
the application with short summaries of updates and then provide a link to view the full story on the website if the user chooses.
For additional information on RSS, you can refer to the Wikipedia entry on RSS,
or for a less technical explanation, http://www.whatisrss.com/.
What do I need to use RSS?
There is a wide range of applications that enable you to subscribe to RSS newsfeeds. Email programs such as Outlook and
Thunderbird, websites such Google Reader and My Yahoo, current browsers such as Internet Explorer 7 and above and Firefox 2.0
and above, and dedicated applications such as FeedReader all have RSS functionality. Each application has its own methods to
subscribe to newsfeeds and will display the newsfeeds differently, so experimentation might be in order to find what works
best for you.
