News On-Line



Topic 24: parkinson's; searchable news on-line links
This site contains education and research URL's book-marked by a Parkinson's patient. Nothing you read in these pages should be considered an endorsement or medical advice.


Searchable NEWS headlines online...(Please bear in mind this IS the news media, not peer reviewed scientific papers ...)

Google Beta News Search - try parkinson or stem cell or (your choice)
current default is "parkinson's" / language=English / sort=by date
"parkinson's" in the media

Google Beta News Search on "stem cell"
"stem cell" in the media

GOOGLE News is very fast and has become my "breaking news" favorite... It supplements, but does not necessarily replace... (in my case) the following tried 'n true resources...

Resource Links, Newscenter

News Flash - Read Associated Press Headlines...
Associated Press News Ticker
Associated Press / Washington Times

Breaking News Tickers

Ivanhoe Medical Breakthroughs

Pandia Newsfinder is a current favorite - they are fast, reliable, relevant, etc. and usually present 50 or less headlines... ( Google's flaw is that it tends to "swamp you" with dozens 'n dozens of the same story thereby masking other news in the hundreds of headlines presented )

"parkinson" in Pandia News

"parkinson" in News Index

By now you've probably twigged that searching for parkinson gets results!
Parkinson's Disease does not... so keep it simple...("parkinson's" works in GOOGLE Beta News but does not in Pandia Newsfinder or in News Index...)

Using "parkinson" as a key word in a search of this nature may also bring articles about Michael Parkinson, Lord Cecil Parkinson, Claire Parkinson, etc. but these are easy to spot and ignore... you will also see that multiple newspapers will carry different versions of the same newswire items...

"stem cell" in Pandia News

"stem cell" in News Index

Rocket News on the topic of your choice - just type in any topic!
http://www.rocketnews.com/

World News (this one allows searches in many languages)
"parkinson" in the World News media

World News also has the best (my opinion) headline site and photographs if you just want to know what is transpiring around the Globe...

GOOGLE also has very fast Headline News - Select World, US, etc.
http://news.google.com/

or... Pick a News Site from Google's Directory...
http://directory.google.com/Top/News/
