Shout Outs

Updated 3/2017 -- photos and all links (except to my own posts) removed as many no longer active and it was easier than checking each one.

T, Notes of an Anesthesioboist, is this week's host of Grand Rounds. Nice edition! Thanks for including my post. You can read it here.
Today I've organized Rounds into six major sections (each preceded by a self-indulgent little nod to a movie from my personal list of favorites):
1. School Days - posts about our training experiences and their aftermath
2. Stories from the Trenches - one of the reasons I read medical blogs at all
3. Educational Materials - it's Grand Rounds, after all; but I'm optimistic that our audience won't have their heads nodding onto the back wall of the lecture hall as they helplessly snooze through some slides... :)
4. From the Patients' Side
5. Politics, Economics, "Systems" Errors, and Controversies
6. Medical Blogging: issues upon issues, now and forever
Via a twitter from Scan Man: India's surrogate mother industry A moral & ethical minefield of which he doesn't approve. I think it’s a tough position for those Indian women to be in. One I’m glad I’m not in.
Childless Asian couples from Britain are increasingly travelling to India to pay women to act as surrogate mothers for them.
In a country where there are no laws surrounding surrogacy, the industry has become a multi-million dollar business.
A video from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) who along with Families Fighting Flu, Inc. (FFF) has launched a compelling video documentary via YouTube. Please, get your children and yourself vaccinated for the flu vaccine. For more information about the flu and the influenza vaccine, please visit the CDC website or Families Fighting Flu’s website.
Via ShadowFax and Uveal Blues, some amazing high-speed pics of stuff getting shot or smashed. I agree, it makes for some beautiful pictures (photo credit). For some less than beautiful effects of bullets, check out Bongi’s post, tumble.
Do you or someone you know need a new camera strap or maybe just a funky one? Well, the Stitching Surgeon shows off the one she made for her sister (photo credit).

The Dr Anonymous' Blog Talk Radio show this week will be about Podcamp Pittsburgh.
I hope you will join us this Thursday night at 8 pm CST (or 1 am GMT) both to listen to the show and to participate in the chat room. That's where all the fun is.
