Health News: Technological And Medical Advances Today ( Ben posted on November 29th, 2013 )

087 Health newsAlong with the changes in the world and in the lives of people over the past decades and centuries, come the countless technological advances that cannot just make our lives easier and our work faster, but can also help us in so many ways and in so many aspects in the society as well as specifically in the lives of people. And one aspect of the society where technology had greatly impacted positively is the medical services of the society, specifically the health of people in terms of saving them from sickness, helping them recover, and prevent or avoid catching diseases. Despite the negative effects of the changes in the world to the lives of people including these new technologies, inventions, and innovations, these technological advances can help them in return.

Some other advances include new medical facilities that can heal or help people live through sicknesses and diseases that can kill people or last a lifetime. Diseases like cancer, diabetes, pneumonia, tuberculosis, and so on. Some or probably most of us know that nursing diabetes can be a pain, and in order to help diabetes patients to not feel pain especially when drawing blood to monitor glucose and insulin in their bodies, some technological advances such as needle-free diabetes care are made. Other countries have robotic check-ups now too. There also medical advances today that can help quickly diagnose flus, examples are microfluidic chips and RT PCRs. There are also lasers now that can help fight cancer. And even small medical facilities that are used in surgeries and other operations.

Also, because of the technological and medical advances now, educating youths to be nurses and doctors are now easier than before. These medical teams can also learn a lot with the use of technology about the sickness and diseases a patient might have. But, of course, technological advances must be paired up with technical skills as well as knowledge. One cannot play when you are in the medical field, games are not welcome there; these are the life of people that are at stake, making mistakes is not an option. With the tools in the medical field today, nurses and doctors can take care of their patients even more efficiently and effectively.

There are still a lot of medical advances that are needed as of today. But with the help of todays’ technology, sooner or later, people will be able to invent and create many things that can make any impossible thing be possible.

A Simple Guide To A Healthy Living ( Ben posted on October 8th, 2013 )

Some people often get sick and usually seek medical help immediately. More often than not, their sickness is usually caused by negligence in their food intake or because of their lifestyle. When people go to the hospital to seek medical attention, doctors would just prescribe certain drugs just to alleviate the pain that the individual feels or cure the sickness temporarily until it comes back again. One information doctors don’t tell you is that the only key to being healthy is prevention.

044 information doctors dont tell you

We have to strengthen our immune system to protect our body from getting sick. One way to strengthen our immune system is to monitor and control our diet or food intake. Some of the food that could keep up our immune system are alkalizing foods such as fresh, raw, and organic vegetables. Avoid foods that are processed or those that are in can, or even those that are packed in supermarkets which could be damaged fruits or vegetables.

You must also get a daily dose of sunlight. Letting you body get vitamin D from the sun is a natural way to improve your immune system function.

People nowadays are more sleep deprived. Have you ever noticed that when you are constantly deprived of sleep, you are more prone to have colds or coughs? Aside from this, cortisol, which is the stress hormone, increases when we are deprived with sleep. This makes us more irritable and more tense than usual. Sleep restores hormones and cellular repair occurs while we sleep, therefore, it is really important to help our body cope with stress and heal itself.

Another classic advice way to stay healthy is to drink adequate amount of water, which is 8-10 glass a day or as research suggests, 1 ounce of water for every 2 pounds of body weight every day.

Meditation can also be of great help. Some people meditate daily for 5 to 30 minutes and they say that this helps them clear their minds. When you meditate, you have to tune in your body and just let your thoughts flow without really going deeper into them. Just close your eyes, breathe deeply, and relax your mind.

Lastly, surround yourself with the right people. There are some people who could cause enormous amount of stress in us and as soon as we realize that, we should learn to avoid them. Surround yourself with people who are important – your family, trusted friends, etc. Maintain a healthy relationship with this people and they would also help you maintain a healthy relationship with yourself.

What Should We Know About Good Politics ( Ben posted on September 2nd, 2013 )

Many people could tell what is a government and how will it affect the lives of the people. Without a government, a nation could not stand on its own. Without them, economy, religion and people cannot make autonomy. Politics is the key why people have the authority to lead the country. Its foundation lies with the people who trust them to make their leader and purposely build a good structure in order for the citizenry gain its interest with the resources within.

018 political news

Politics, as you may know, is a body of legislative which makes the law to rule out to people. It is created so that everybody may know that the government they are under has the particular authority to make and keep laws which should be obeyed by the citizens. They are made of people who can stand out for his own people, remarkable and respected citizen who was voted due to an insistent demand for a power. In this subject lies the philosophy of man that should be created whether it is passive or objective to the nation. They rule the law and they must, in turn should cover the conditions underlying it.

In some countries with democratic stand, people are the head of the government. They voted for the person whom they see they can trust and will lead them in straight paths. They ask the leader to make certain policies for the citizens to follow. Some think that when people rule the government, they conform to what it lays beneath the unwavering disputes and in the end may have a resolution for a perfect authority. Few say that law should be acted upon by people of sovereignty, to which politics and law should be fair among all.

While it is true that some may even think of ways on how to even classify their own government since politics is not only about government issues. They need to balance effectively the factors on how to increase the strength of economy, nature, law and religion. They may even notice some glitches when it comes to reliving the nature of good political aspect of citizenry. It can survive from the faulty if they know how to handle them successfully. They can also make a good point knowing that the citizen who trusted them the most will helped them in every way they can.

Be Aware Of The Health Trends Today ( Ben posted on September 2nd, 2013 )

003 health newsDue to the changing climate situation and pollution in the air, our health tends to detoriate. We may not know or even realize that whenever there are changes in our environment, our body may not eventually perceive the situation and as the result, we may be harmed with illness. Some has unexplained fever, cough, colds and flu. Others may be experiencing sudden changes in mood swings and heart attacks. Few may even notice spots on their skins, which in turn science cannot provide an answer to these not so good health trends today.

Scientists have discovered that changes on our world today have been proven the reason for the existing diseases which they are trying to study and observe. They stated that whenever there are change of perspective in weather and climate, it affects the person’s resistance to boil down the ailment. There are times that specialists of different kinds of diseases may notice and unidentified matter that drives them more to study on its prognosis and equally find a solution to resolve the issue for the health trends today. They may identify the cure but they are still finding ways to know its origin.

What makes them think that a simple cough and cold may eventually proceed and develop into pneumonia. A simple inflammation of the tonsils may subdue to respiratory infections. A running nose will improve to become allergic rhinitis. Those are some of the effects and results of the change. However, unusual or not they begin to realize that we cannot control it. The only thing that we have to do is to prevent it by making choices in life. A choice that can be overruled so that we can resist the bad health trends today.

There may be reasons for it. But we need to become warriors to halt this malady. To some, we need to take good care of our body by taking it vitamins and minerals, eating a well-balanced meal, exercise regularly and drinking clean water. Do this regularly and as a result, you may have the best and ideal body. Fighting with the illness is the best way that you can do. Make it a habit of getting ready to struggle for survival. We cannot tell as to what disease may be spreading in the future. But we can tell to ourselves that we are ready to combat its potentials.

How To Start A Newspaper For Your School Project ( Ben posted on August 22nd, 2013 )

072 how to start a newspaperWere you asked to make a newspaper for your school project? Do you have any idea how to start a newspaper? Making newspaper may not be that easy because you need to understand the whole content of the newspaper. But are you going to do it individually or by group? If you are asked to do it as a group, I’m sure that your teacher has already who will be your group mates. Once you already know who your group mates are, the first thing that you need to do as a group is to meet and talk about your newspaper project. You also need to assign each member of the group of their assignment. After assigning each member of their assignments, you need to get their commitment. They need to be committed if you want to get high score for this project.

In your meeting, you also need to talk about the articles that you will be putting in your newspaper. You might have seen how newspaper looks like even though you don’t read them. But since your project in making newspaper, I think that you should get a real newspaper that will serve as sample or guide for your format. We all know that newspaper only contains news, it could be bad or good, and it doesn’t matter. It also contains advertising and weather updates. Try to brainstorm with your group mates to come up with the best ideas about your newspaper. The content of your newspaper would depend on the assigned topic that your teacher has assigned to you (if there is any). But in case your teacher would leave it all to you as long as it has to do with your school, then you can make an article regarding the different activities that is happening in your school like the achievers, sports, school event, and even the leadership in your school. You can also write about the teachers and faculties. You can go and interview some teachers and make an article out of it.

This may not be easy because the content should have sense. You need to make sure that your reader will be satisfied and happy with the things that he will read in your newspaper. Your first reader will be your teacher since that is your school project. But don’t worry because you will be given enough time to finish the project and you can finish it on time if you are all committed.

Why Is It Important To Listen To Political News ( Ben posted on July 25th, 2013 )

Not all people may have an interest to watch or listen to political news because of the repetitive unsolved issues for decades already. Those people who are only interested to watch or listen to political news are those people who are concerned with the status their country or community. But whether you are pro or anti politics, why do you think it is important that you get yourself updated with political news, even if you don’t like how these politicians handle the situation? There are actually a lot of advantages that a citizen like you can benefit from it. Let me tell you some of the advantages that you can get from listening to political news.

083 political news

Know Your Status As A Citizen

It is very important that you know you know your status as a citizen of that country. Don’t tell me that you don’t care because you need to be sure that you are living in a community or country that you can trust and feel safe, a country or community that can help you in times of need. Most of us may not give much attention to this matter but what most of us don’t realize that we need to know our status especially when it comes to our needs. Remember that if we want to do something very important like processing our visa, taxes, or other important personal documents, the people that can help us is the government. If, your government can’t help you with these documents, then something is wrong with them. Something is going on in the government that you may not be aware.

 

Status Of Your Country

Another important factor that you also need to know is the status of your country. You need to know if you country is making progress or not, because if your country is having financial issues, then all of you will be affected. Help will be difficult in times of need. That’s why you need to watch political news for you to be updated with every issue that is related to your country’s status.

 

Economy Status

Next will be the economy status of your country. If your economy is affected you are also affected. Do you remember the recession that happened in United States where many citizens have lost their jobs because the company that they work for can’t afford to pay all of them? If the economy status of your country is low, you need to be alarmed because you can be affected or you might also lose your job, which will be the last things that you want to happen especially if you have family.

Now, I assume that you realize how important it is that you get yourself aware through listening to political news.

What Does It Mean When We Say Public Opinion ( Ben posted on July 2nd, 2013 )

You might also be familiar with the phrase “public opinion” and you may also have an idea about it. But what do we really mean when we say public opinion. In this article we will be talking of its definition. Public opinion is defined as the aggregate of individual attitudes or beliefs. In some cases, it can also be defined as the complex collection of opinions of many different people and the sum of all their views or as a single opinion held by an individual about social or political topic. It is also mans public consensus, as with respect to an issue or situation. But did you know that over time, the meaning of public opinion has changed dramatically? One of the factors that could prove of its changes is the article that political scientist Susan Herbst wrote a bout. She said that “Formalized tabulation of political opinions began in the city-states of ancients Greece, where elections were viewed as central components of the democratic process. Yet it was not until the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries that qualification became a significant element of political discourse in the West.”

076 Public opinon

There are also different types of public opinions. One is the “Opinion Intensity”, which measures how strongly and intensely people feel about an issue or a politician. Some people may feel strongly against the issue or will support the issue. Those issues will polarize and divide the public. Second type will be the “Opinion Saliency”, this measures the extent to which issues are important and relevant to people’s lives and values. One of the common and perfect examples is the political environment and economic circumstances will often dictate what issues are important to people. Saliency ranks relevant issues in order of priority; also, it will often give a misperception as to which number of people takes which side of an issue. Let me give you one perfect example – Abortion. In this case, people will be divided in to two groups that will be the minority group and the majority group. Even if only a minority of people holds one view on an issue, that minority of people will feel strongly and very intense to that issue and the issue will be more important to the majority group than to the majority.

Lastly will be the “Opinion fluidiy.” This type of opinion measures the extent to which opinion changes over the course of time.

Blogs: Be A Freelance Blogger ( Ben posted on June 10th, 2013 )

010 blogsWhen it comes to online jobs, one of the most popular and very challenging is being an online blogger. There are a lot of online bloggers that actually earn a good pay, and most of them are just doing this as part time job. Becoming a freelance blog writer is not that easy at the beginning, but as you continue to do it, you will find that it’s fun and rewarding. You can hear from most bloggers that it’s worth the effort. Now, you might have known or seen some of the bloggers who write something about a place, things, or even business. But before you can write a very good article about certain topic, you need to spend or invest time in research, because normally it takes at least 90 minutes to write a good article in a blog. But of course before I forget, before you can become a blogger, you need to have that passion with the job. Without passion, you will have hard time adjusting and might have hard time dealing with frustrations and disappointments.

If blogging is one of your passions, you will find it fun and rewarding no matter how you struggle to come up with good article. Some of the frustrations may come in if you don’t see many hits on your page. But the good thing about being freelance blog writing is you own your time. You can write it during your free time. You don’t have to quit your job to be a freelance blog writer. You can keep your day job and still earn extra as freelance blog writer. You can write early morning, before you sleep, on lunch time, while you are travelling, or while sitting on a boring conference. Next, you need to have or create your own blog. Having a personal blog page will help you practice your skills and also showcase your writing. Writing in blogs ia different writing for print although some rule applies but you need to get a good feel for the medium before you ask people to pay you for it.

You can also apply as freelance blog writer on freelance job boards. Try to write to bigger blog. Try to choose those that have money to pay you because small blogs can’t pay you. Then you need to know your worth. But make sure that you give them the best article that is worth the money that they will be paying you.

The Definition Of Freedom Of Speech ( Ben posted on May 16th, 2013 )

168 Freedom of speechBased on the Miriam Dictionary, freedom of speech is defined as “the right to express facts and opinions subject only to reasonable limitations (as the power of the government to protect itself from a clear and present danger)guaranteed by the first and fourteenth amendments to the U.S. Constitution and similar provision of some state constitution.” Another definition of freedom of speech is it is a “Right” as stated in 1st and 14th Amendments to the Constitution of the United States, to express information, ideas, and opinions free of government restrictions based on content. In addition, it is also known as the political right to communicate one’s opinions and ideas using one’s body and property who is willing to receive them. This phrase is commonly used and we normally hear this everyday but the term freedom of speech is sometimes used synonymously. It includes any act of seeking, receiving, and imparting information or ideas, regardless of the medium used.

The practice to freedom of speech or also known as the freedom of expression is not absolute in any country and the right is commonly subject to limitations, as with label, slander, obscenity, sedition (for example inciting ethnic hatred), copyright violation, revelation of information that is classified otherwise. Many people are practicing this kind of rights and some of them don’t really understand what it is and its limitations. Like for example if you see those people who rallies in the streets because they are fighting for something or correcting something. It’s their right to express what they feel and their opinions but sometimes they go beyond the boundary that most of the time leads to chaos instead of peace. That’s why before you practice your freedom of speech you first need to understand its definition and limitations. Remember that the right to freedom of speech is still under the law. It is recognized as a human right under Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and it is also recognized in international human rights law in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR).

In Article 19 of ICCPR it states that everyone shall have the right to hold opinions without interference and everyone shall have the right to freedom of expression. But it’s also stated that the exercise of these rights carries “special duties and responsibilities”, and may therefore be subject to certain restrictions when necessary for respect of the rights or reputations of others as well, or for the protection of national security or of public order, or of public health or morals.

Citizen Journalism 101: How To Start A Newspaper ( Ben posted on March 4th, 2013 )

Many citizens have grown tired of mainstream media. They feel that these media outlets are owned by corporate interests and have no intention of telling the truth. Some of these citizens have decided to take the media into their own hands and become citizen journalists. They feel that this is the best way to have a positive impact on their world. They seek to uncover the truth behind the corruption in politics that leads to the loss of our freedoms and the degradation of our environment. While many of these concerned citizens use only the Internet to push their message, others have turned to print media.

How to Start a Newspaper

If you are a citizen journalist and are looking to move beyond blog posts and other Internet writing, you may be wondering how to begin and create an actual newspaper. While most newspapers are going out of business, smaller and more local papers have been having continued success. Their success lies in their ability to appeal to the local citizen in their area. While most people have grown tired of being lied to to and hearing about celebrity and political gossip, they are still interested in hearing about the things that are happening in their local community. If you are looking to start your own paper, then start local. There are many issues in your local area that reflect the current political climate. These local issues can be used as examples of larger issues. The local price of gasoline can be used to create an article about climate change. Local school issues can be used to discuss larger issues such as freedom of speech.

Starting a paper may seem like a daunting task but it can be done if you focus on your immediate area. This will help others to think globally while acting locally. You can also help to benefit your local economy by including advertisements from local businesses. You can also hire local writers as well as local cartoonists and other talents in your immediate area.
