A cool video of a sphere turning inside out This is from the Geometry Center, and is a proof by demonstration that a sphere can be turned inside out with no singularities (allowing self-intersection, though!).
Mathematical Careers This site has profiles of people who use a substantial amount of mathematics in their jobs. Included are people in cancer research, computing, environmental clean-up, financial planning, military defense, the oil industry, and lots of other businesses. The site is searchable by keyword, which means that you can type in a job or career that interests you, and get a list of all the profiles related to that topic.
Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU's): This is a list of summer research programs in mathematics for undergraduates. The programs last from five to eleven weeks, and there are a variety of math topics offered at schools across the country. If you are admitted, you will get paid to do math.
