We also have a list of religious intolerance news for this month. 
Sad to say, these are usually much longer lists.

bullet2008-FEB-05: World: Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, 91, founder of the Transcendental Meditation movement, died in the Dutch town of Vlodrop. He was a guru to the Beatles and introduced transcendental meditation to the West.  He had resigned his post on JAN-28.
bullet2008-FEB-23: US: University of Texas is conducting study on U.S. middle-aged women: The university is conducting a study to explore ethnic differences in midlife women's attitudes toward physical activity. Gift certificates are given to participants.

They state:

"You are eligible to participate in this study if you are a midlife women aged 40 to 60 years old who do not have any mobility problems; who can read and write English; who are online; and whose self-reported ethnic identity is Hispanic, non-Hispanic (N-H) White, N-H African American, or N-H Asian."

"Data will be collected through the Internet from Feb. 1, 2008 to May 31, 2011. Methods for the data collection include an Internet survey among 500 midlife women in the U.S. on the Internet and four ethnic-specific online forum discussions among about 30 midlife women per ethnic group recruited among the Internet survey participants."

See their website at: http://mapa.nur.utexas.edu/ All of this has nothing to do with religious tolerance or information. However, they asked us for help.
