    Today’s technical innovations, found in your favorite wholesale electronics shop, is giving exposure to new possibilities in a surging and affordable way that we have never witnessed to this extent. Merely look at the newest gadgets advertised by your favorite wholesale electronics store and this will be obvious. Quick access to music, video, and travel information is laying the groundwork for what will be a technological revolution. Some think the renaissance has already subsided; however, the revolution is just getting started.

    The devices that you see at your neighborhood electronic wholesaler(s) are more than mere toys; they are not just items of entertainment. Instead of being the end in themselves, the gadgets will be utilities with which giant advances in modern learning should be achieved. How can this be? In some ways, this is analogous to the creation and proliferation of the personal PC. At first, the home PC only supported light entertainment and rudimentary financial software. Very quickly though, the personal computer became the lifeblood of the home, with a plethora of educational and mail and messaging software available.

    In the current electronics arena, one of the low hanging first steps to be taken is in music exposure. For the first time in the history of man has so much music been made available to so many people. Understandably, the initial inclination is to decide to listen to music that one has listened to all his life. Consider the possibilities though. This could be an opportunity to teach and expose people to all music styles – not just modern pop charts, but classical, jazz, ethnic, and other genres. Having a better grasp of the history of music will add more richness to the development of new music in the future. Kids now have an opportunity to become easily well versed in the music of Bach and Beethoven, for example; they have the tools available to learn and leverage the music from the masters in ways that earlier music buffs could never do.

    Check out the latest offerings in wholesale electronics. At your favorite electronic wholesaler(s), the products that use mp3 and other music formats are cheaper than ever before. The gadget, naturally, does not have to be just for music enjoyment. Classroom presentations, discussions, dissertations – all that and more can be stored and played back on a portable, affordable gadget. Leverage the possibilities

  • Major Study Shows Dissatisfaction Following Robotic Prostatectomy

    Comments Off on Major Study Shows Dissatisfaction Following Robotic Prostatectomy

    A major study of patient satisfaction and regret following open prostatectomy and robot-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy provides some important lessons for surgeons.*
    The research, recently published in the European Journal of Urology, shows 19 per cent of patients regretted their treatment choice and patients who had robot-assisted surgery were most likely to be dissatisfied.

    The authors suggest the regret is “possibly because of higher expectation of an ‘innovative procedure'”.

    Their conclusion is one for all urological surgeons to note. “We suggest that urologists carefully portray the risks and benefits of new technologies during preoperative counselling to minimise regret and maximise satisfaction.”

    In recent years, the treatment of prostate cancer has been a rapidly developing field, providing patients with a wide range of different choices.

    Brachytherapy and HIFU offer non-surgical options and for those who want surgery, there are open, laparoscopic and nerve-sparring options, depending upon your diagnosis and treatment provider.

    At the same time, patients are becoming increasingly proactive, using the internet to research and consider the different options themselves, as well as the traditional consultation with the urologist.

    Increased choice is without doubt a positive benefit for patients, but as urology centres – both private and NHS – seek to attract patients, we have a responsibility to carefully counsel them about the advantages and disadvantages of treatments.
    There is a distinctive risk when a procedure is perceived to be new and especially “innovative”. The media will always be interested in the next “pioneering operation”, particularly one which involves robots.

    A newspaper article will tend to portray the new procedure as an immaculate solution, which corrects all the risk and disadvantages of other procedures.
    As surgeons, we have a responsibility to provide patients with a more sober and informative picture, acknowledging limitations as well as benefits.

    The patient satisfaction study was based on the responses of 400 men who had undergone retropubic radical prostatectomy (RRP) or robot-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy between 2000 and 2007 in the US.

    The report’s authors also examined patients urinary domain scores, hormonal domain scores and found scores were independently linked with regret.

    It is still early days for robotic surgery in the UK. In prostate cancer surgery, there are currently six Da Vinci robotic machines in the UK, compared with 350 in America.

    There is no current evidence that robotic surgery provides better outcomes for patients, in terms of urinary symptoms, post operative sexual function or post-operative risks and complications.
    It seems certain that robotic surgery will increase within the UK during the next decade, with NHS and private centres purchasing the Da Vinci machines.

    This will provide even more choice for patients, which is in principle, a positive development.

    It is however vital that patients are given accurate and comprehensive information to enable them to make an informed choice, rather than simply being over-sold a new product.

  • More from the Sister Study

    Comments Off on More from the Sister Study
    June 21, 2017 /  Education and Study, Uncategorized

    In the March 17, 2009 issue of Life Extension Update, we reported the finding from the Sister Study, a cohort of healthy sisters of breast cancer patients, of a beneficial association between multivitamin use and telomere length, a biomarker of aging. Telomeres, which are repeating DNA sequences that cap the ends of chromosomes, shorten with increased cellular aging.

    In articles published in the February and March, 2009 issues of the journal Cancer Epidemiology Biomarkers and Prevention, further findings from the Sister Study concerning the impact of lifestyle on telomere length were revealed.

    In the February, 2009 issue, Christine Parks, PhD, of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and her associates evaluated the effect of stress on telomere length in 647 Sister Study participants. Telomere length in DNA from blood samples was measured, and stress hormone levels in urine were assessed. Questionnaires completed by the subjects provided information on perceived stress levels.

    Study participants, on average, reported low stress levels. “Even so, women who reported above-average stress had somewhat shorter telomeres, but the difference in telomere length was most striking when we looked at the relationship between perceived stress and telomere length among women with the highest levels of stress hormones,” Dr Parks observed. “Among women with both higher perceived stress and elevated levels of the stress hormone epinephrine, the difference in telomere length was equivalent to or greater than the effects of being obese, smoking or 10 years of aging.”

    In the report that appeared in the March, 2009 issue of the journal, the effect of past and current body mass index (BMI) on telomere length was examined. Sister Study participants whose BMI categorized them as overweight or obese before or during their thirties and whose weight status was maintained were found to have shorter telomeres compared to subjects who became overweight at an older age. “This suggests that duration of obesity may be more important than weight change per se, although other measures of overweight and obesity were also important,” stated lead author Sangmi Kim, PhD, also of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences. “Our results support the hypothesis that obesity accelerates the aging process”.

    “We anticipate a wealth of information to come out of the Sister Study,” predicted Dale Sandler, PhD, chief of the Epidemiology Branch at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences and principal investigator of the Sister Study. “Not only do we hope to find out more about the environmental and genetic factors that might lead to breast cancer, we also want to learn more about how factors such as stress, diet and exercise might impact cancer and other disease risks.”

    “Together these two studies reinforce the need to start a healthy lifestyle early and maintain it,” National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences director Linda Birnbaum, PhD, concluded. “These papers remind us that there are things people can do to modify their behavior and live healthier lives, such as maintain a healthy weight and cultivate healthy responses to stress.”

    With an election that came down almost entirely on party lines, the U.S. House of Representatives approved the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act. The Development, Relief and Education Act, creates a way for young adults who came into the country as kids a way to become citizens. The DREAM Act, isn’t assured yet, however. The Senate has promised a filibuster. Payday cash advances might even be within the future for those invovled with the DREAM Act. Article resource – DREAM Act vote offers citizenship for service or schooling by Money Blog Newz.
    The DREAM Act may be the best ‘path to citizenship’ there is
    The Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act is a bill intended specifically to target children that are brought to the United States as illegal immigrants before they’re 16 years old. A six year “temporary” status would be given to young adults who go through the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act to apply for citizenship. During that time, they would be required to go to college on their own dime or serve within the United States military.
    The impact of the DREAM Act
    There’s a lot of debate over the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act. Some are calling this an “amnesty” bill that would give 2 million illegal immigrants a right to be within the country legally. Others take issue with the belief that these immigrants would be able to pay in-state tuition for school. Proponents of the bill, however, point out that the bill targets only young adults who were not given an option in coming to the country. The six-year “trial period” would provide them nothing other than a lawful right to be within the country; no PELL grants, no welfare, just a chance to “prove themselves.”.
    Vote status of Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act
    A 216-198 vote got the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act passed within the House of Representatives. This doesn’t mean it will ever become a law though. The Senate might filibuster the passage of the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act, preventing it from passing. The Homeland Security Secretary and Education Secretary have both come out in support of the DREAM Act. The federal deficit may reduce by $1.4 billion if the DREAM Act does pass due to the increased economic activity and reduced enforcement costs, claims the Congressional Budget office. The DREAM Act will go into law if it’s able to pass the U.S. Senate. Obama said he would sign it too.

  • Higher Education A Womans World

    At first glance, higher education today might seem like a woman’s world.

    Government officials have warned that men will face a struggle for good jobs in future as teenage boys shun university.

    In 2006, 22,500 more young women than men went on to higher education. Ministers are increasingly concerned at the widening gender gap in higher education. Employers increasingly look to hire staff with degrees.

    Consequently, men might find themselves marginalised in the jobs market.

    Girls have been outperforming boys at GCSE, A-level and in university for years. But now girls are doing better at work too, earning more than boys in the first eight years of their careers.

    In 2005, 80% of girls passed national curriculum tests in English, compared with 67% of boys.

    At A level, girls passed 23.9% of exams at grade A, compared with 21.5% of boys. According to Higher Education Funding Council for England Figures last year showed 47% of 17-30 year-old women had gone into higher education in 2004, compared to 37% of young men.

    Hefce chief executive Professor David Eastwood said: We need to understand better why this is happening and start taking some action sooner rather than later.

    Higher Education Minister Bill Rammell said The government has introduced a number of strategies to address the gap in gender achievement and to raise the performance of all pupil.

    The Raising Boys’ Achievement Project which looked at exciting and innovative ways of raising achievement across a range of primary, secondary, and special schools to identify and evaluate strategies which are particularly helping motivating boys.

    Schools will be better able to address underachievement in the performance of boys and girls if they know when and where they emerge. A careful analysis of data, mapping the development of male and female pupils, particularly the value-added data, including a breakdown of data by key pupil sub-groups, will enable schools to plan when and how to intervene. Schools should monitor pupils progress regularly by gender.
