Greed dot com: what's in a domain name? How about $500,000 - if you happen to be the first one to get there

Article Abstract:

World Wide Web domain names have become unusually valuable to individuals who want to sell them for an unusually high profit. Of greatest interest to buyers are names that are easy to remember. As use of the Internet increases, there may be legal ramifications for determining who `owns' or at least `possesses' a domain name and Web address. Currently there is a protocol for registering these names with various organizations, such as the American Association of Domain Names.

Use of pressure to treat hypertrophic burn scars

Article Abstract:

Pressure appears able to aid in the healing of severe burns by minimizing hypertrophic burn scars. Pressure garments, designed to be worn almost continously, can be custom-made to manage scar formation. Early scar management can be facilitated by special bandages and wraps. Concavity inserts may also be necessary. Patient education is essential for the success of long-term pressure therapy for burn victims.
