Multilingual Glossary of Technical and Popular Medical Terms in Nine European Languages

Multilingual Glossary of Technical and Popular Medical Terms in Nine European Languages

Multilingual Glossary of Technical and Popular Medical Terms in Nine European Languages
http://users.ugent.be/~rvdstich/eugloss/welcome.html

Executive Summary:
The basic list of items for the multilingual vocabulary was compiled from a frequency search of terms in scientific data sheets on medical products. This search was performed on a Dutch language CD-ROM optical disk available from the Belgian Pharmaceutical Association. Due to limited funding and the tight time schedule, thorough academic research and testing had to make way for a more pragmatic approach calling upon a network of (native) professional translators, experienced in medical translations or working closely together with physicians. Assistance was provided by EURODICAUTOM, in the form of printouts of terms available in the European Terminology database. Besides a list of English definitions and translation instructions, the translators were provided with a disk and a free text database highly facilitating data input. Specific instructions and frequent individual monitoring of the translation tasks proved to be a satisfactory approach. As it appears from the project time-table the results of the projects were due at an earlier date. However, as the translators confronted the project leaders with the justifiable request for a definition or context for each of the 1,830 terms. The provision of those definitions proved to be a time-consuming task and resulted in a revision of the deadline from September, 94 to April, 95. The glossary was in the first place meant for the authors of user package leaflets. They will now have at their disposal: a) an English dictionary of 1.830 medical terms, frequently used in written drug information, b) nine glossaries of 1830 scientific and popular medical terms, one in each of the nine official languages of the European Union, c) an electronic database of the dictionary and glossaries, and d) a user-friendly software interface as an Internet application, installed at the World-Wide Web server of the University of Gent, Belgium. This will be added to Healthcare Resources 2006 Internet MiniGuide.

Wikilaw – An Open-Content Legal Resource
http://wiki-law.org/

The Mission of Wikilaw as stated on their home page: Wikilaw’s goal is to build the largest open-content legal resource in the world. To accomplish this goal, Wikilaw needs your help! We encourage all law professors, practitioners, and students to share their knowledge. Currently, there are roughly 1,000,000 lawyers in the United States. If every lawyer in America contributed a fraction of their legal knowledge to this site, Wikilaw would become one of the largest libraries of legal information in the world. However, unlike other libraries, there would be no barrier to accessing this information. Everything on this site is FREE! Wikilaw was founded with this goal. Please contribute to the Wiki-Treatises, Wiki-Motions, Wiki-Law-Dictionary, Wiki-Law-Articles, and Democracy 2.0. Help us fulfill this mission! This will be added to Legal Resources 2006 Internet MiniGuide.

PodZinger – Searches For Content Within Podcast Audios

February 27, 2006

PodZinger – Searches For Content Within Podcast Audios
http://www.podzinger.com/

Podcasts are rapidly emerging as a popular on-line audio publishing vehicle. But trying to find podcasts that are of interest to us is reminiscent of the early days of the internet. Instead of using general search techniques, sites attempted to organize all the content on the internet into categories. The diversity of the available content became too cumbersome for mere categorization to be an effective means for people to find what they wanted. Search evolved to where it is today, that is, to look inside websites quickly for words and phrases. Podcasts have been subjected to the same primitive search through categorization … until now. PODZINGER looks inside podcasts, not just the metadata, letting you search podcasts in the same way that you search for anything else on the web. When you type in a word or terms, PODZINGER not only finds the relevant podcasts, but also highlights the segment of the audio in which they occurred. By clicking anywhere on the results, the audio will begin to play just where you clicked. There are also controls that let you back up, pause, or forward through the podcast. Or you can download the entire podcast. PODZINGER, powered by 30 years of speech recognition research from BBN Technologies, Cambridge, Massachusetts, transforms the audio into words, unlocking the information inside podcasts.

geocoder.us – Find the Latitude and Longitude Of Any US Address – For Free

geocoder.us – Find the Latitude and Longitude Of Any US Address – For Free
http://geocoder.us/

Geocoding is the process of estimating a latitude and longitude for a given location. Geocoder.us is a public service providing free geocoding of addresses and intersections in the United States. The geocoding service relies on Geo::Coder::US, a Perl module available for download from the CPAN. How does it work? The US Census Bureau provides location data for nearly every street and highway in the US in the form of the TIGER/Line data set, which runs to over 24 gigabytes uncompressed. Geo::Coder::US condenses the 2004 TIGER/Line data set down to a 750 megabyte BerkeleyDB database. A given address or intersection is parsed into its components, and the matching address range is searched for in the database. The address is then interpolated between the endpoints of the matching address range to estimate its latitude and longitude. For urban addresses, the coordinates given by Geo::Coder::US can be within 10 or 15 meters of the actual location — which is well within the range of typical GPS accuracy! Other times the coordinates can be off, so use your own judgement when using the data! This has been added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.

Journal of Molecular Histology

February 25, 2006

Journal of Molecular Histology
http://www.springerlink.com/link.asp?id=111649

The Journal of Molecular Histology is dedicated to publishing the results of original research concerned with the localisation and expression of molecules in animal cells, tissues and organs. Studies describing novel cellular or ultrastructural distributions of molecules which provide insights into biochemical or physiological function, development, histologic structure and disease processes are preferred. Articles using histochemical, immunohistochemical, in situ hybridisation, receptor binding, autoradiography, image capture and processing, and reporter molecules as well as new state-of-the-art visualisation techniques are especially welcomed. The Journal does not consider manuscripts dealing with the application of immunological or other probes on non-standard laboratory animal models unless the results are of significant biological importance. Papers in the following topics are encouraged:

* Subcellular localisation and trafficking of molecules and organelles, both in living cells and in fixed preparations,
* Cell-cell and cell-extracellular matrix interactions,
* Cellular cytoskeleton and receptor dynamics and functions,
* Cell and tissue differentiation and remodelling,
* Genetically engineered cells and tissues,
* Three-dimensional reconstructions, particularly of expression patterns over time,
* Cell cycle and cell lineage analysis involving gene expression profiles,
* Apoptosis,
* Gene expression analysis from histological preparations,
* Functional genomics and proteomics,
* New and improved techniques and critical reports on existing techniques used in molecular histology.

The Journal of Molecular Histology publishes full-length original research papers, review articles, short communications and letters to the editors. All papers and reviews are referred by at least two independent referees. This has been added to Biological Informatics Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.
