Caruso’s Useful Websites


 

We seem to be on the internet most of the day, whether it be for work or pleasure. Here are just a few sites that I enjoy and think are very useful in everyday life.

 

Ehow.com: This site is for tips and step-by-step instructions on how to do stuff. There’s the practical how to teach a child to tie their shoes and the creative how to make title mosaics and the merely suggestive, how to exercise at the beach.

 

News.google.com: Keyword searches pull up links to the latest stories, each with a note indicating when it first appeared. The returns are culled from thousands of online news sources based in the U.S. and abroad. You can sort results by date or relevance. You can also request email alerts so you know when new articles are posted.

 

Cancerfacts.com: A great online resource for cancer patients and their families. The profile took delivers information tailored to a specific cancer diagnosis. Register with an email address to receive news of the new therapies and treatment options. Then take a moment to stop by the breastcancersite.com. Click on the big pink button for a page of ads from sponsors that donate mammograms to poor women based on the number of click-throughs.

 

FFFBI.com: The home of “The Fin, Fur, and Feather Bureau of Investigation seeks to teach kids problem-solving and critical-thinking skills while introducing them to other places and cultures. To participate, you must choose a mission, follow instructions and answer questions to help foil evil plots. It’s cute and clever.
