link library of 7,000+ sites related to international trade.

newsletter on to others.
My name is John
McDonnell, and for years I wrote a weekly e- newsletter
that profiled business-oriented Web sites. Now I'm using
my Web research skills to find sites that are useful for
international trade, as well as some fun sites that
you'll enjoy visiting.
I decided early
on that a career in medicine was not for me. It probably
had something to do with the fact that I fainted at the
sight of blood (actually, even ketchup gave me a queasy
stomach). But if you're a doctor or want to be one,
you'll find lots of useful information at Medics
Abroad at www.geocities.com/medicsabroad. This site
has links to worldwide medical news, schools,
organizations, jobs, online learning, dictionaries, and
more. And it's not just for doctors -- there are links
to medical search engines, where you can look for the
latest information on diseases, ailments, procedures,
and other health matters.
|CALCULATORS AND CONVERTERS |

chances are of years of bliss together or a breakup next

doomed or blessed. It's all in fun, of course, and you
wouldn't want to make any important decisions based on
this calculator, but there are plenty of other Web sites
where you can get accurate answers to important
questions. You'll find a list of them at Online
Calculators, Conversion Tools, Measurements &

|LOOKING EAST |
If you have a business
or personal interest in Russia or Eastern Europe, you
should check out the University of
Pittsburgh's REESWeb at www.ucis.pitt.edu/reesweb.
This site has a treasure trove of information about
this fast-changing area of the world. You can do a keyword
search, or browse the list of topics, and there is so
much here you'll certainly find some useful links. For
example, I found a great list of business sources at
The countries represented range from Albania to Uzbekistan.
