Dear Leap-secers,

The attached article was published in the Innovations Section of GPS World's
November, 1999 issue. Note that since 1984 the Earth has been slowing down
less than expected from long-term predictions. Such "decadal fluctuations"
are not unusual, and it is entirely possible that the magnitude of earth's
de-acceleration will quickly increase in the near future.

Also, new users may not be aware that by clicking the Web page under "July
2000", you can get all submissions for that month.
