Stayin' Alive

Stayin' Alive
Discussion of public health and health care policy, from a public health perspective. The U.S. spends more on medical services than any other country, but we get less for it. Major reasons include lack of universal access, unequal treatment, and underinvestment in public health and social welfare. We will critically examine the economics, politics and sociology of health and illness in the U.S. and the world.

Best Web Sites for Students Who Want to be Productive: Technology Evangelist

If you're interested in actually being productive at school this year, consider familiarizing yourself with some of the sites listed below. The first eleven sites listed below are free, so why wouldn't you check them out?
  1. Writely: Writely is a web based word processor that allows you to work on your papers from any computer. For example, you could work on a document in your room, then pull up the document through a web browser at the computer lab to print it. You could also share your paper with a friend at your school or anywhere else in the world to get some help with drafts. Sign-ups are currently closed, but you can get one through a friend who's registered.
  2. SparkNotes: SparkNotes provides tutorials (similar to Cliff Notes) on pretty much any common topic you could think of. Being web based, they can do things that text books only dream about, such as linking to related material and undefined words. If your text book makes no sense, and the TA teaching your 100-level course can't get a point across give SparkNotes a try.
  3. WikiPedia: Pretty much any subject you're studying has been touched on by a WikiPedia contributor. Like SparkNotes, WikiPedia entries link to related information and sources, so you can find out more information about subjects that interest you and different perspectives on the same topic.
  4. Your Professor's Blogs: Try Googling your professors names to find out if they have blogs. If so, consider subscribing to them using a feed reader like Bloglines.
  5. Bloglines: Bloglines is a web based application that lets you aggregate content from your favorite web sites into one interface. For example, you could track news from your hometown newspaper, blogs related to issues that interest you, entertainment such as AutoBlog, TheSuperficial,or BoingBoing, and saved searches from Craigslist for dorm furniture or bikes.
  6. Google Calendar: You have a lot of classes, tests, and parties to keep track of. Use a calendar so you can make the most of your time.
  7. Dummies eTips: If you've spent most of your online life on AIM and MySpace, you may be missing some essential Office skills that will make your life easier in college and at your future job. The authors of the Dummies series of computer books offer daily tips by email on everything ranging from Microsoft Word to
  8. Gmail: Chances are pretty good that you'll find yourself in a long and heated email exchange with a large group of friends trying to pick the ultimate location for your spring break trip. The nice thing about Gmail is that entire thread of emails will be bundled together into one conversation, so that important email from your professor won't get pushed back two pages in your inbox. And it integrates well with Google Calendar.
  9. Credit Center: Graduating from college with a high credit score and no credit card debt may turn out to be as valuable as your degree. Understand how your credit score is determined and how important it is to avoid screwing it up by reading the Credit Center articles at
  10. Meebo: Chances are pretty good that some of your friends use different IM programs than you do. Some may be on AIM, others Yahoo, and yet others MSN or Gtalk. Meebo solves this problem by aggregating chat from all four major chat platforms into one web based chat client. Rather than running all of those chat clients at once, just sign up with Meebo, add in all of your chat IDs and you're set. Now you can chat from any computer with web access without worry about installing chat software.


FreshBooks - The Fastest Way to Invoice Your Clients

We Believe:

Running a business is hard enough. We believe financial record keeping should be easy, fast, (and perhaps even fun), but still detailed enough to satisfy your accountant.

Billing should be simple. You can send an invoice a few seconds after creating your account no matter what level of experience you have.

Your data deserves to be safe, secure, and accessible to you. We also believe you own your data, we do not. Your data will be easy to export any time you want it.

Every customer should look like a Fortune 500 company, based on the image sent by invoices, bills, or other accounting communications, no matter what size the company is.


Simplybill brings simple invoice management to all. Instead of wrestling with overly complex accounting software or trying to mash-up a spreadsheet into some sort of design, begin sending attractive invoices in minutes.

Simplybill is a web-based application. We've simplified things, ignoring features that nobody uses and making the rest ridiculously easy-to-use.

Who should use Blinksale?

Blinksale is perfect for anyone who needs to invoice clients for services or products sold.

Hot Air

Welcome to the world’s first full-service conservative Internet broadcast network!

Internet video is booming. Apple’s iTunes store has sold a gazillion videos since its debut. YouTube gets more traffic than the New York Times web site. And politically-oriented video is on the rise:

These efforts have one thing in common: they are all produced by liberals for liberals.

I formed Hot Air Network, LLC, to bring ideological diversity—because we all love diversity–to the videoblogging world. And because it looked like a lot of fun. Two of the most cutting-edge bloggers on the Right have joined me in my cyberquest: video editing whiz Bryan Preston and the almighty Allah Pundit. Allah likes to think of us as a little Internet garage band. Only we’re playing in three separate home offices and a basement. But you get the idea.

Our mission at Hot Air is to:

So, tune in. Turn on. And drop us a tip or two or three. We’re here to fight hot air with Hot Air. Fill ‘er up.

He wonders why this place is called Eschaton. Surprisingly, he's the first one to ask. When I decided to start this my brain quickly tried to retrieve from its recesses some obscure-yet-appropriate reference to, well, something, and it offered up this one. It refers to a small passage in David Foster Wallace's monster book Infinite Jest in which students at a private tennis academy play a complicated game called Eschaton. It's a strange half-explained simulation of WWIII, sort of a Risk-like wargame played on tennis courts, with tennis ball bombardment representing nuclear bombardment. The game has arcane rules requiring a computer to compute the value of each "hit" based on position, trajectory, etc... In the passage the game eventually gets completely out of hand and the rules break down.

It seemed an appropriate metaphor for Blogistan, and political discourse generally in the country, though save me your critique of my literary analysis as I claim no ability in this area.

This also, of course, explains the subtitle "Political Bombardment from Behind the Orange Curtain," with the latter part referring to my exile in Orange County, CA.
