ENDANGERED SPECIES ALERT

Whales, bison and jaguars are just a few of the Earth's beautiful creatures that need your attention today. At E-Patrol: Endangered Species Alert, you'll get the lowdown on the world's animals that are threatened with extinction. Safari out to http://www.sprint.com/ epatrol/ep-endangered.html to learn how you can make a difference in the lives of these animals. The site takes you across the globe to places like Australia, where you'll enjoy the hiss of the frilled lizard and the cuddly charm of the koala. South of the equator, you'll meet threatened mammals such as the giraffe, the squirrel monkey, the cheetah and the zebra. And closer to home, you'll swim with the alligator and soar with the majestic bald eagle. The site is loaded with sweet graphics and photos. Plus, by taking the E-Patrol pledge, you'll prove to yourself and your friends that you truly can make a difference.

LOUD AND PROUD!

At the Web site for the National Hollerin' Contest in Spivey's Corner, N.C., you'll get the chance to celebrate the great folk culture from this part of the country. Twist and shout at http:// metalab.unc. edu/hollerin/ The holler has been found to exist in Europe, Africa and Asia. Be sure to download the different types of hollers, from the danger holler to the ranching call to the good old-fashioned "howdy neighbor!" Listen up for all the hoots, howls and yells from the contest. Heeee-hawwww!
