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 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.


Do you wonder sometimes if the relationship you're in has any future? Well, now there's a way you can find out what your chances are of years of bliss together or a breakup next week. At The Love Calculator at you can get the inside scoop on whether your relationship is 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 atOnline Calculators, Conversion Tools, Measurements & Weights at This site has links to hundreds of places where you can calculate exchange rates, time differences, weights, and lots of other values.


If you have a business or personal interest in Russia or Eastern Europe, you should check out the University of Pittsburgh's REESWeb at 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.


Another site with good regional coverage is the University of Redlands East Asia and Southeast Asia Directories at This site has directories of information that you can click on to focus your search ever more narrowly. You'll find plenty of useful information about politics, culture, environment, history, economy, society, and more in countries ranging from Brunei to Vietnam.
