MedlinePlus - videos of surgical procedures
This page provides links to prerecorded webcasts of surgical procedures. These are actual operations performed at medical centers in the United States since January 2004. The videos last an hour. Please note that you cannot send in questions by email, though the webcast may say that you can, because you are not seeing these videos live.

Most videos dated after July 15, 2007 are in Flash format. You will need Flash to view the programs. You can download the flash players at http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer.

For videos dated before July 15, 2007, you will need the latest version of RealPlayer to view the programs. If you do not have Real Player, you will be prompted to obtain a free download of the software before you view the presentation. You can download the RealPlayer media player at http://www.real.com.

The videos open in a second window. If you have a pop-up blocker, you will need to disable it to view the programs.

If you like art and the history of art ...you'll enjoy this site
Why We Made Smarthistory
We are dissatisfied with the large expensive art history textbook. We find that they are difficult for many students, contain too many images, and just are not particularly engaging. In addition, we find the web resources developed by publishers to be woefully uncreative. We had developed quite a bit of content for our online Western art history courses and we had also created many podcasts, and a few screencasts for our Smarthistory blog. So, it finally occurred to us, why not use the personal voice that we use when we teach online, along with the multimedia we had already created for our blog and for our courses, to create a more engaging "web-book" that could be used in conjunction with art history survey courses. We also realized that this content would be useful to museum visitors and other informal learners. We are committed to joining the growing number of teachers who make their content freely available on the web.

Taxidermy. I never think about it unless I am in a museum. I don't ever recall thinking I was witnessing a case of bad taxidermicological work. Oh crap! I don't even know if that is a real word!
Well, cut off my legs and call me shorty...but please, please don't taxiderm me! :wink:

Crappy Taxidermy is a visual blog dedicated to exploring the bizarre world of taxidermy. The pictures within are exceptional examples of the strange, the grotesque, and the awful. Though our title may say “crappy” we respect the dedication and talent of the taxidermists who created the works pictured within. We do not claim photographic credit for any of the pictures within unless otherwise noted. Crappy Taxidermy does not profit from its content; this website exists solely for the entertainment of our viewers.

It's a funny site, worth a visit.
