Medical Metasearch

If you ever need quick, sufficiently detailed and reliable information about a medical topic (who doesn't?), you need to know about A free medical metasearch engine, OmniMedicalSearch is designed to simultaneously search up to 16 medical search engines and provide the top results from all. Sources include both United States and UK prominent services and institutes (such as WebMD, Healthline, and NHSDirect Online), each selected for being "unbiased and noncommercial in nature and an established authority for delivering responsible medical information." Users can opt to search the entire Web, medical news sources, images, or a single source. They can also select the "Web2" option that searches only .gov, .edu, .org and domains among four major search engines. Check out the site-map for dictionary and acronym search features and links to medical associations and journals.

Myth Information

The law, being a learned profession, has often made use of Classical and mythological allusions to illustrate its doctrines. To the modern reader, however, such references may seem obscure. The Encyclopedia Mythica, an online resource devoted to the world's mythology, shall quickly explain and clarify these allusions. So, if a phrase such as "cleaning the Augean stables" has you puzzled for a moment, then look no further than the Encyclopedia Mythica for a quick answer.
