"Mad German Doctor Guy" Demonstrates Cardiac Electrical Conduction and Arrhythmias

This is for all of you medical students learning the electrophysiology of the heart and various cardiac arrhythmias. I have no idea where the YouTube user got this video but it is hilarious and somewhat educational. The man in the video (a presumed phsyician or professor) moves his arms to represent the right and left atria and his legs to represent the ventricles. The dance gets better as the heart becomes more troubled. All this to the tune of 'Gonna Make You Sweat' By C+C Music Factory.

From Beck to The Dynamics

It has been over a year now since I have become a big fan of Beck, who is now one of my favorite artists. This is mostly because of his latest album, The Information, which I purchased from the iTunes store. Just recently, as a result of having made this purchase, the iTunes store recommended an album to me called Give Up by The Postal Service, while I was searching for new music in the electronica genre. I think this is an excellent album, and it really struck a nerve for me when I recognized the intro for the song, Such Great Heights as the music for the UPS Whiteboard Advertising Campaign, which had already caught my attention. After taking a new interest in The Postal Service, I did some research on the band and found that some of their other songs had infiltrated pop culture and several of their songs had been covered by other bands. Due to this finding, I went back to the iTunes store to sample some of their songs as performed by other groups, which is where I found the wonderful A cappella performance of Such Great Heights by The Dynamics. The Dyanamics is an A cappella group at UMASS Amherst and their first studio album is Crescendo. A performance by The Dynamics of Such Great Heights is available on YouTube which I have posted below and is the reason why I started this post in the first place. The video can give you and idea of the talent but it is no comparison to the studio version.

Hawaiian spider

This is a Hawaiian garden spider I saw in Kona. The "gold back" was very impressive. It makes a large X on its web.
