Officials announced the increase on Tuesday.

    Northern Nevada will host one of the largest and most innovative art and cultural events in the nation this week, yet most local residents have never experienced the weeklong Burning Man Festival. Western Nevada College offers a fascinating glimpse into the Burning Man culture of self-expression and self-reliance through a photography exhibit that portrays the art, costumes and energy of the event. “The Culture of Burning Man,” showing through Oct. 15, is made possible by the Black Rock Arts Foundation, and is curated by local artist Maria Partridge.

    It’s easy to dismiss Burning Man as nothing more than a bizarre hippie love-fest that takes place deep in the Nevada desert every year the week before Labor Day. But doing so misses the fact that it’s an amazingly successful enterprise--and, as such, has a thing or two to teach about how to inspire creative people and create a great product. Since it first began 25 years ago, Burning Man has grown larger every year (if you ignore the slight dip in recession-scarred 2009). It’s grown so much that this year, for the first time ever, the organization had to...

As the nation faces yet another austerity budget, the Irish Mail on Sunday can reveal that €9,000 has been given towards building the Temple Of Transition – a giant timber structure that will be torched at the Burning Man festival in the Nevada desert next month.

    Republicans say a new ad is grossly misleading and the Democrats are illegally using copyrighted video. Conveniently leaving out bits of information is a well-worn tactic in political advertising, but Republicans say the latest ad in the 8th Congressional District race crosses the line.

    For several years, I had been using a tape drive & NovaStor software to backup files. The tape drive has died. I'm looking for alternative methods to backup data; primarily a CD-R drive. (Never used/owned one.) System specs: Soyo SY-6VBA MB 1ghz Pentium 3 512mb RAM Win98 20gb IDE HD (I forget the manufacturer) I live in a rural area. Store choices within driving range are limited to OfficeMax, Best Buy and Circuit City (which I dislike). The CD-R/burner software should produce CDs which can be read by any PC, even if the system is running MS-DOS. Currently, I'm looking...
