Becoming a more global player 6
I also occasionally enjoy checking out Google News for a different part of the world (scroll down to the bottom of the page for the selection). While Watching America focuses on what others are writing about the USA, these Google News links show what people in different places are focused on, not just what they might pay attention to in the USA (you can find that on the Watching America site, too, if you look). There's also the BBC for a traditionally global view.
Also from Dave, try exploring various maps of the world.
