The Book Cover Archive provides information on a book cover and its designer. The site presents over 1,200 cover designs. Each entry includes the title of the book, author, publisher, publication date, the genre it belongs in, and its designer. Click on the name of the designer and a list of other book covers that he or she has done is listed. Art directors, photographers, illustrators, and even typefaces can be searched on the site.
From the website, “HealthStats is the World Bank’s comprehensive database of Health, Nutrition and Population (HNP) statistics. It includes over 250 indicators on topics such as health financing, HIV/AIDS, immunization, malaria and tuberculosis, health workforce and health facilities use, nutrition, reproductive health, population and population projections, cause of death, non-communicable diseases, water and sanitation, with background information on poverty, labor force, economy and education. Users can access HNP data by country, topic, or indicator, and view the resulting data (and wealth quintiles) in tables, charts or maps that can be easily shared through email, Facebook and Twitter.”
There is a new website from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) that will allow you to see if an organization is a non-profit or charity. From the website, “Exempt Organizations Select Check is an on-line search tool that allows users to select an organization and check certain information about its federal tax status and filing.” After you click on the Select Organizations Exempt Check Tool at the website, there are three choices available to choose from.
- Organizations eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions (Pub. 78 data),
- Organizations whose federal tax exemption was automatically revoked for not filing a Form 990-series return or notice for three consecutive years, or
- Form 990-N (e-Postcard) filers and filings.
The name or EIN number can be typed into the search box. Then, the search results should come up with the organization name, EIN number and the location it is in. The Deductibility Status is also listed (the type of charity the organization is.). This website is replacing Publication 78, which is no longer published by the IRS.
