Very useful application that is great for small businesses. They offer for just 9 dollars a month the ability to easily create dynamic content to advertise a business. You can upload videos, power point videos or anything to show to potential customers. Then you can share these videos with businesses that are doing the same thing. The main advantage in being with partnering with other businesses. Great concept at a reasonable price. I'm definitely telling my friends who own businesses about this idea.

This is one of the best resources on the internet for what they are calling alternative medicine. This encompasses a large database on herbs, supplements and vitamins. They list the relevant studies for almost all dietary supplements along with cautions and possible benefits. I recommend to that people do their research on sites like this before buying a new supplement

At first I was a little bit wary of paying $9.95/month for what used to be free on hulu for their new service hulu plus, but it really is a good deal since they stream it in much better quality it seems. Nice to be able to have all of the current season's TV shows as well. The combo of hulu plus and Netflix makes it seem like I rarely watch cable TV now. I am a big fan of HDTV and high quality images but the on demand feature of internet TV is just too alluring.

Great site for educating people about the importance of hormones in aging women and and overall great site on women's healthcare. They have compiled a great resource and I recommend this site to women looking for more information on health concerns ranging from breast health to menopause

Most people still believe that you can get most of your nutrients from the food you consume, but the latest medical research on taking supplements such as Vitamin D have shown the medical benefits of taking certain supplements. It turns out that vitamin D really isn't a true "vitamin" and that term was coined back when scientists didn't really understand the role of these chemicals. Vitamin D is really a type of hormone and often needed in the body in larger amounts than doctors previously thought. I recommend everyone to read this website and see if it may apply to you. Talk to your primary care doctor about taking vitamin D as a supplement and possibly getting your levels measured.

Often times patients want to know where they can find a medical search engine rather than relying on google to find them medical information written by professionals. Searchmedica.com is a nice search engine and while it is designed for professionals, it can still be very valuable for patients researching a particular disease or condition. It might take more expertise to really understand the articles, but at the same time it provides a higher level of information for those who are interested in it.

One of my favorite magazines along with wired as they have useful technology articles and information about the new practices in the workplace. Nice place to learn about innovative business opportunities.

Bite sized audio news delivered for free to your cell phone is perfect for when you are standing in line or want a break from listening to your music. Even better are the comedy shows that are available on lexy as well. Check it out and sign up for just a couple audio clips to see how you like it at first. Careful not to let them text you too often as that can get annoying.

You may wonder why anyone would waste their time researching how to cook in a clay pot, but unless you have tasted a chicken made in a clay pot you are missing out. Clay pot cooking allows for the meats to take on a very distinct flavor and texture that other methods of slow cooking cannot achieve. Romertopf is the leading brand of the many clay pots that are on the market and they will last you for years. The next time you decide to go out to dinner, instead go buy a cheap clay pot for $20 and a whole chicken for $8 and create a healthy meal for an entire family. Here is a recipe for your first clay pot chicken

Web 2.0 meets karoke is the basis of this website. Think PS singstar but online only and you have using2.com. Seems like a pretty good site but it is not quite as good as singstar online through the PS3 right now. This may change over time as this site is free right now and if it gains momentum could get quite a bit of traffic. I'm sure other sites like this exist and with everyone using webcams and skype, hopefully this catches on. I can see Rock Band turning into a webcam and free internet based game.

I have purchased many glass pumpkins from Walker and Bowes and they have excellent craftsmanship. The owners of this company also created The Bay Area Glass Institute (BAGI) which is a not-for-profit glass institute and workshop. Their pumpkins make great gifts during the holiday season.

There are many so called "super fruit" drinks out on the market these days ranging from the MLM monavie bottles to what you can buy at whole foods. The bottom line is the juice and anti-oxidants from these types of supplements are beneficial for you and it is more a matter of which one to buy. I have tried youth juice and it tastes pretty good and for the price is a solid deal and therefore I do recommend it to friends and family. I have also simply bought bottles of acai/noni from whole foods and those also cost around $30 for a months supply. When I recommend these types of things it often comes down to cost. If you can afford to have a monthly shipment of a juice come to your door then this isn't a bad deal. If you are not eating a handful of berries a day, then a juice like this is a good way to supplement your diet.

Caltrain is the only real way to take public transportation from the southbay to SF since BART doesn't go down that far. People ask me all the time as a doctor how they can avoid getting sick taking public transportation and what I always say is never touch anything with your hands... doorknobs, railing, etc. Use a glove or the end of a shirt... those saniwipes don't do much so it is better not to bother with those things and avoid contact with the railings that everyone else touches. The bike cars are the ones that have the least amount of people who could have colds/flus as if they are taking their bike the odds are they are not sick, so that is the car I sit in. The only big drawback of Caltrain is that they decided against giving us public free wifi on board and have tabled that idea until the future. Until then you have to bring you own wifi on board with you but expect to lose connection now and then as you go through dead areas.

There have been many people interested in doing business with China and in particular their wholesale electronics industry. This site is affiliated with the CES (consumer electronics show) that is typically held in Vegas every year. Those interested in doing business with China may want to look into either attending the conference or looking at their list of vendors as a guide to what companies to consider for business relationships. Many of these vendors also will work with individuals and ship them products as well.

Dysport is the new Botox that was recently approved by the FDA. It is also derived from botulinum toxin just like Botox, but it is a new drug recently developed by Ipsen a French company. Medicis licenses the drug and distributes it in the US along their top selling Restalyne and Perlane. This is the first real competition Botox has faced in the injectable market.

29 inches is the now the fastest way to ride a mountain bike and this site has the best collection of reviews out there for 29ers. No longer just a fad promoted by Gary Fisher, it has become more of a reality and many forks including Fox are now designing for this larger ride. Who needs full suspension if you have 29er?

Protect all of your electronic gadgets like the iphone or PSP - These guys are probably the best out there at making protective surfaces for all types of electronic gadgets. Don't bother going to the store to buy cases for your mp3 player, cell phone or even laptop, just go to this site they have protective covers for almost everything.

Great gadget website - one of my favorite sites for new electronic gadgets... easier to find cool new toys on this site than on big sites like cnet.

Wonderful physician and beauty expert - I have known Dr. Lin for years and she is an amazing physician in both skin rejuvenation and anti aging techniques. Her office staff is personable and warm. She also invented MDLashFactor and that shows her committment to the world of cosmetic skin care.
