Wolfram Alpha (also styled WolframAlpha and Wolfram|Alpha) is a computational knowledge engine or answer engine developed by Wolfram Research. It is an online service that answers factual queries directly by computing the answer from externally sourced "curated data", rather than providing a list of documents or web pages that might contain the answer as a search engine might.

Wolfram Alpha, which was released on May 15, 2009, is based on Wolfram's earlier flagship product Mathematica, a computational platform or toolkit that encompasses computer algebra, symbolic and numerical computation, visualization, and statistics capabilities. Additional data is gathered from both academic and commercial websites such as the CIA's World Factbook, the United States Geological Survey, a Cornell University Library publication called All About Birds, Chambers Biographical Dictionary, Dow Jones, the Catalogue of Life, CrunchBase, Best Buy, the FAA and optionally a user's Facebook account.

Wolfram Alpha is a wonderful resource for students everywhere. I generally use it for math problems, but you can use it to learn about a lot of other things as well - seriously, there's way too many things to list, from socioeconomic data to finances to fine art. Unfortunately for college students living on campus (or anyone else with bad WiFi), it's hard to use with weak internet connection and usually takes several tries to load since it has so many interactive features. You can change the background color if you want to; you can use it to generate math problems to practice for a test (you have to pay for that, though); you can input images and then analyze/process them (again, requires Pro, which you have to pay for). There are still lots of functions available for free users, though, and it's helped me many times on math homework that I couldn't figure out. It's a very underrated search engine that more people need to know about and utilize.

Attempted to visit the website but unfortunately was not able to navigate to it with the error message stating that the "DNS address could not be found."

Something to look at and fix immediately.

One of the most well-known public broadcasting and news service companies in the world, the BBC has an understandably slightly cluttered site.

However, the top bar navigation works well and the news articles are front and center right on the home page.
