Fast-acting medicine. Want to get your clinical paper out fast? Send it to what's touted as the first all-electronic general medical journal, launched this month by former JAMA editor George Lundberg at his new home, Medscape. Even peer review will be via e-mail at the free (with registration) publication, and Lundberg hopes “the panache of the electronic world will spill over and create a sense of urgency.” http://www.medscape.com/

Safety check. Quizzes and a goofy character named Lab Guy pep up topics like fire safety, storing chemicals, and handling blood at this new online lab safety course from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. You can also order free training videos online. http://www.practicingsafescience.org/

Catch some rays. Take a brief tour of the sun at these pages featuring movies of eclipses, solar flares, the photosphere, and more. Wind things up with a grim look at the sun's Earth-incinerating death throes a few billion years from now. www.astro.uva.nl/∼michielb/sun/kaft.htm
