There are soooooo many great health sites out there. Well, here is
one more that seems worthy of including in your bookmarks or
favorites - The Internet Health Library (it's searchable too):
As long as I am mentioning health websites... AnswerMed's objective
is to provide you with practical information on medical conditions
and medical/surgical procedures with generic answers to simple
questions about common illnesses, injuries and procedures.
T-mail is translating the Internet (their words, not mine)... Anyway,
T-mail is pretty cool. It's a free service that translates email
messages in several languages. T-mail offers some other neat
services too and there are a few ways to use them. Check out T-text,
T-board and T-sail too... Pretty cool!
Inequality.org is a website about inequality in income, wealth and
health... Lots of information, quotes and statistics that I thought
were very interesting.
GeoBiz2Biz claims to be the best online directory providing helpful
information for business professionals. Resources include links to
business directory info, web solutions, procurement services, supply
chains, and other business tools.
I have to admit that until recently I haven't been much of a fan of
the GeoPortals. However, I think the folks at GeoPortals are making
some huge strides in providing some pretty good sites! I see a lot
of similarity to ABOUT.COM (another portal type site that I didn't
like at first - but now I am a huge fan of about.com). If you were
like me and didn't find too much use for these places or if you
haven't seen them in a while, they are worth a visit now!
About.com has put together some of the best collections of resources
on a large variety of topics! About.com guides really do try to
help. I have emailed questions to about.com guides and received
prompt courteous replies with good information.
Find Tutorials claims to have "The biggest database of free tutorials
on the internet with thousands of free guides and tutorials listed in
hundreds of categories." Find Tutorials is also searchable - I could
spend a lot of time at this place!
Seems like everybody is making a portal these days! bopLOP.com is
your destination travel portal. The bopLOP travel search engine
will link you to everything, from hotel booking, airline tickets and
vacation stores, to area guides, health & safety info and maps.
Do you like cows? Well, if you don't like cows I suppose you could
skip this next one. Big Dave's Cow Page has cow-related info on the
Web. It's mostly just fun stuff with some cow pictures, cow sounds
and a little cow humor, but there's a couple of links to actual, even
possibly useful, cow information.
If you are interested in photography... All Things Photo is for you!
All Things Photo is a search engine dedicated to photography and
The Community Health Status Indicators (CHSI) Project was launched in
response to grassroots requests from local health officials for
health data at the local level. The CHSI project team created 3,082
reports of health status indicators, one for each county in
the nation. A very interesting website!
Lastly for now, WebClipping.com is the only comprehensive Internet-
based monitoring, intelligence gathering and clipping service. Using
advanced proprietary searching, verification and database
technologies, WebClipping.com helps you meet the Internet monitoring
challenge. There is a charge for this service, but WebClipping is
good to know about if you ever need it!
Well, I guess that's about enough Interesting Stuff for now... :)
