THE INTERNET REVIEW
KEN'S NOTE: I will try to review and feature at least one World Wide Web Site in each issue.
Sport Information Resource Centre
"An international leader in sport information since 1973, the Sport Information Resource Centre (SIRC) identifies, collects, organizes and disseminates information about sports, fitness and related fields", so says their introductory sentence. And it is true, this data base is the largest in the world. Any literature review would likely be incomplete if you did not take advantage of this extensive collection. But don't expect to get your search for free. This site will provide you with the contacts and information that you need to take full advantage of their commercial products.
They do maintain a nice listing of contact organizations in:
-Sport, Physical Education, Recreation and Tourism Organizations
-Sport Information Organizations
-Colleges and Universities with Physical Education, Sport Science & Related Programs
Their finest give away and one worth bookmarking is their International Conference Calendar. This is a second-to-none resource with listings of conferences throughout the world. Their diligence on this project is evident. Everyone one else on the net should just give up and link their would be calenders to this clear winner.

Subject: NEW: electronic thesis/diss site
This is to announce a new web site I have developed for on-line
references and resources related to electronic masters theses
and doctoral dissertations (ETDs) in the humanities, including a
directory of such work currently in progress:
If you are a graduate student now at work on an ETD, please
stop by and fill out a short form describing your project
(available off of the "currently in progress" page). The
information you provide will be added to the site's on-line ETD
directory, which I hope will serve as a resource for other
graduate students who are in the process of seeking approval
for such work.
I'd also like to hear from anyone who might have other
suggestions as to the content or potential uses of this site. I
envision it as a sort of clearing-house for ETD materials,
including pointers to on-line initiatives and guidelines,
publications, services, archived mailing-list discussions, and
other relevant humanities computing materials. Some of the
pages are stretched a bit thin, as ETDs have not attracted as
much attention as other forms of scholarly electronic
publishing; if you know of any ETD resources that I have not
included, please tell me about them; also, please check back from
time to time as the site expands.
Potential audiences include not only graduate students but also
faculty who want to make informed decisions about supervising
an ETD, as well as librarians, administrators, and publishers.
I have tentative plans to innaugerate a mailing list devoted to
this topic as well.
Please forward this announcement as seems appropriate, and
please excuse cross-postings.
Special thanks to the University of Virginia Library's On-Line
Scholarship Initiative and Special Collections Deptartment for
providing server space. Comments should be sent to me at the

SMOOTH SAILING FOR TELEMEDICINE IN THE MILITARY
Whereas telemedicine has hit several bureaucratic barriers in the civilian world, it's been smooth sailing in the military, where issues such as interstate medical licensing don't matter. The aircraft carrier George Washington, stationed in the Adriatic, is equipped with a radiography unit made by Fuji Medical Systems USA that can transmit X-ray images to Navy hospitals in the U.S. for diagnosis and consultation, and a mobile Army unit in Bosnia is now has the same capability, sending its images to U.S. military hospitals in Europe.

TECHNOLOGY / COMMUNICATION
FROM: INNOVATION, 29 April 1996
The U.S. Air Force and California-based Cyberware have developed a body scanner that can measure a person's size and shape in 15 seconds. It's used in fitting military clothing and equipment. (Wall Street Journal 25 Apr 96 A1)
