  Abstract: From three years developing over 400 physics applications from the NY Times I will show the best applications rich in data verifying physics concepts. Most applications are on mechanical concepts. The site is: http://CisePhysics.homestead.com/files/NYT.htm. The site lists 12 pages with 40 single one page applications per page. Each single page application contains: brief edited text and graphics from the NY Times, introduction,questions,hints, and answers. I use these pages as: introduction to new concepts in general college physics, extra credit for students, and quiz questions. Students enjoy verifying physics concepts using NY Times current physics applications as seen at this site: http://CisePhysics.homestead.com/files/NYT.htm
