MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. / / Little is permanent here, but much is reused. That point will be made -- with a loud ka-raaaang -- this month with the launching of Hard Rock Park. The Southeast's first new amusement park in nine years opened Tuesday on the long-dormant Fantasy Harbor entertainment complex and partly on the rubble of the failed Waccamaw Factory Shoppes. Hard Rock Park opened with 55 acres of rides, eateries and shops on a 140-acre site about half the size of Carowinds in North Carolina or Tennessee's Dollywood.

The singer unleashes a cry ferocious enough to lead soldiers into war. The guitarist squeezes out a solo so tight it could wring his instrument's neck. And the drums bear down like a 10-ton truck ready to flatten anybody who can't keep up the violent pace. Welcome to the blood sport that was live Led Zeppelin in its prime. On Tuesday, the world will get a lengthy reminder of the band's power when its surviving members release the mother of all concert packages. Covering the full history of Zeppelin's flight, the project features eight hours of previously unheard live material: five hours on a state-of-the-art DVD (called, funnily enough, Led Zeppelin DVD)

The online collection, which was announced last week, features millions of historic Jewish records including Oskar Schindler's list - the names of almost 2,000 Jews saved by a German businessman who employed them.

EUROPE'S AIRBUS has unveiled plans for the world's largest passenger jet, a behemoth that will carry 656 passengers and feature sleeping areas and other extras aimed at making long-haul flights more enjoyable. Too good to be true? Perhaps. Airbus will need $12 billion to get the project flying. That may not be easy, considering that the company is about to be privatized. The French, German and British governments currently play a big role in its operation. Airbus planes, which are completed from parts manufactured in several European countries, have always been subject to political haggling.
