    Actually the design is pretty much up to date for your target market. I would say that you really need to look at your side bar and understand the importance of the order of items. For example, I dont see how your 'global visitors' widget is more important that your 'categories'. You have got a big gap at the top. You need to get your Social bookmarking and Subscribe up there. Maybe open up the width of the site a little. I would suggest that the first set of google ad's you have at the top, switch to a banner advert, as currently I would have to scrool down to read the first article. which means I will immediately dismiss the first ad. Use the 'Read More' function on your home page. This makes interested people do a second click on your site for full article plus it make home page more readable.

    Damn I could go on!!!! lol

    The theme is not using the real estate properly so everything looks squashed.

    Get semilogic theme from this forum. It's very flexible and comes preloaded with easy theme changes and good set of plugins.
