Citing the growing number of consumer electronics products that wind up in landfills, Rep. John Sarbanes proposed Friday giving federal agencies $60 million over the next three years to promote recycling of gadgets and computers. Used electronics represent a relatively small share of solid waste — about 2 percent, according to the Environmental Protection Agency — but it's a segment that is growing quickly. Companies and households tossed between 1.9 million and 2.2 million tons of electronics in 2005.

Our contemporary-style living room is used mainly for family activities, including TV watching. The room needs more storage space. A decorative storage compartment might be a good addition. Any suggestions?First, you should measure the equipment that would be housed in that single piece of furniture. Difficulties often arise due to the depth of many television sets.Remember that not every component has to be placed in that storage unit or even on just one wall. Items such as stereo speakers, which can be as small as books, may be placed in various parts of the room -- and be hidden from view as well, if you wish.

Allan Hirsch flies several times a year, sometimes for work and sometimes for fun. Almost always, he checks a bag. In the past, he has always felt relatively secure about handing his belongings over to the airlines. "I have always been under the assumption that they are responsible for the luggage once they take control of it and give you a luggage receipt," said Hirsch, a 59-year-old sales rep. "By accepting my luggage, they are taking responsibility for its care." Boy, was he ever wrong.

Jack Revelle doesn't mind his warehouse being cluttered. As co-owner of Pro Quo Books, a Baltimore online book distributor, he expects some of the more than 150,000 titles he carries will end up not just in their designated bins or shelves, but in the hallway, on the floor -- and even in the company's employee lounge. What Revelle doesn't like, however, are the useless monitors and aging computer equipment that gather dust alongside them. "We have six or seven monitors that are sitting in the warehouse," Revelle said.

If you're concerned about how much time your kids are spending watching television, on the computer or playing video games, you might consider the EyeTimer system. EyeTimer lets parents regulate the amount of time their kids spend using electronic equipment. Once the EyeTimer software is installed on the home computer, which acts as the brain of the system, and EyeTimer switches are hooked up to TVs and video games, parents can set up "Time Budgets." When kids want to use the computer, TV or video games, they must sign in. Their time spent using the electronic equipment is then deducted from their budget.

NORWALK, Calif. - Add another wacky element to the carnival-like recall election of Gov. Gray Davis in California: Millions of voters will be voting on punch cards, those of pimpled, dimpled chad fame so discredited by Florida in 2000. The punch card was outlawed in California, as of March 2004, because of the Florida chaos. But many counties have not had time to switch to new machinery. Rather than risk a headlong rush toward unfamiliar electronic equipment - a hallmark of Florida's later voting disaster in 2002 - nearly half of California's 58 counties, including Los Angeles, are sticking with punch cards for the recall vote.
