Jason's Blog: ECG Challenge of the Week for March 10th - 17th. Mutual mimics

These are two 12-lead ECGs that I performed on two completely different patients several years apart. 

Patient's clinical data (Top ECG):
57-year-old black man

Patient's clinical data (Bottom ECG):
67-year-old black man

Are both of these ECGs showing the same rhythmic pattern?

Jason's Blog: ECG Challenge of the Week for Dec. 23rd - 30th.

I performed this ECG earlier this year in an outpatient clinic.

Patient's clinical data:  85-year-old white man; asymptomatic. 

Questions?
(1.)  What rhythm is this tracing showing?
(2.)  What clue/sign is used to differentiate between the two anomalous beats (i.e., 4th and 6th beats).  HINT:  It's named after a part of a certain animal's anatomy.
