First of its Kind National Report Reveals Estimated High Prevalence and Heavy Cost of Type 2 Diabetes Complications in America In Response, Health Organizations Unite to Help Educate on Good Diabetes Management and How to Reduce the Risk of Other Serious Health Problems A first of its kind report looking at the prevalence and cost of type 2 diabetes complications shows that an estimated three out of five people (57.9 percent) with type 2 diabetes have at least one of the other serious health problems commonly associated with the disease, and that these health problems are taking a heavy financial toll on the United States. In 2006, the nation spent an estimated $22.9 billion on direct medical costs related to diabetes complications. The new report, titled State of Diabetes Complications in America, also shows that estimated annual healthcare costs for a person with type 2 diabetes complications are about three times higher than that of the average American without diagnosed diabetes. These complications, which can include heart disease, stroke, eye damage, chronic kidney disease and foot problems that can lead to amputations, cost a person with type 2 diabetes almost $10,000 each year. People with diabetes complications pay nearly $1,600 out of their own pockets for costs that are not reimbursed by insurance, such as co-payments and deductibles. This amount is significant, considering that according to the National Health Interview Survey, an estimated 40 percent of adults with diabetes reported a family income of less than $35,000 per year in 2005. Results from the report were released today at the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) 16th Annual Meeting and Clinical Congress, by AACE in partnership with the members of a diabetes complications consortium: the Amputee Coalition of America, Mended Hearts, the National Federation of the Blind and the National Kidney Foundation, and supported by GlaxoSmithKline. The State of Diabetes Complications in America is an analysis of national health and economic data specific to type 2 diabetes complications, and was developed as a follow-up to a 2005 AACE study showing that two out of three Americans with type 2 diabetes analyzed in a study had elevated blood sugar levels, which can lead to diabetes complications. Many people with type 2 diabetes develop more than one health complication associated with the disease. The new report shows that an estimated one out of three people (33.3 percent) with the disease has one other serious health problem; one out of ten people (10.3 percent) with the disease has two other serious health problems; one out of 15 people (6.7 percent) with the disease has three other serious health problems; one out of 13 people (7.6 percent) has four or more other serious health problems. The report makes it clear that we have a major national issue when it comes to diabetes management, and that urgent action is needed, said Daniel Einhorn, MD, FACE, and Secretary of the Board of Directors of AACE. People with type 2 diabetes need to achieve and maintain good blood glucose levels over time to improve their chances of reducing the risk of these serious complications. The State of Diabetes Complications in America report synthesizes data from two large national studies to examine the issue of diabetes related complications in the United States. Data on the prevalence of diabetes related complications were derived from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) and combined with economic data from the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS).

This commercial spoof made by Terato Dot Com shows how Proton cars are viewed by the majority of Malaysians. Thanks to the improved ride and handling by Lotus, this GTi is a gem. Well, almost...

Kellogg Institute for Food and Nutrition Research (WKKI) located in Battle Creek, Mich., to continue to meet business needs and to achieve continued growth.

To say that healthcare is the lifeblood of a society is an understatement in many respects. The sheer costs associated with keeping the U.S. healthy defy imagination: national health expenditures reached $2 trillion in 2005, the latest year for which government statistics are available, and they are projected to double by 2015, reaching 20% of the gross domestic product

Those who die with testimony that no god but Allah and Mohamed s his messenger will enter paradise. When u r three persons, 2 of u shouldn't talk secretly without the third as this makes the third person sad. Avoid the 3 curse reasons: excreting in resources, midway and in shade. Don't call your brother an infidel. Avoid harm. Allah says in hadith: I banned injustice for me and u, so avoid it. Those who kill themselves with something will be tortured by it. Avoid mediation in Allah limits. Richness isn't big wealth but it s soul richness. If u entered Egypt, get lots of soldiers from it as its soldiers r the best on earth. One will be asked on judgement day about his age and youth how he spent them,his money whether its sources and expenditure and his knowledge what he did with it. Never call my friends bad names. Never wish death. Those who die while fasting or their final words r no god but Allah will enter paradise. Treat people according 2 their status . No license 2 leave mosque prayer as long as u hear come 4 prayer but 4 woman the best place 4 prayer s her home. Allah and his angels pray for those who have daybreak meal during fast as daybreak meal s a blessing. Allah ,his angels and even the whale in sea and the ant underground pray for those who guide people to the good. Allah gets happy with your repentance. Allah says in hadith: Adam son harms me with calling age bad names as I am the age and I change it. From the greatest sins r calling your parents bad names , Sahabah asked: how ? The prophet said: this happens when u call a person parents bad names so he does the same 2 u. Avoid harming others faces as Allah created Adam face like theirs. Not from Muslims a hired female mourner ,those slapping their cheeks and those who tear their pockets in sadness. Visiting an ill persons makes 70000 angels pray4 u till u r back. U , women ! Give more charity as I found u the most hell inhabitants. Those who made a woman their ruler will not succeed. A believer shouldn't hate a female believer as if he hated a manner from her, he would like another. Any woman who makes others smell her fragrance s an adulterer. Consultants will not feel sorry. Poverty s about 2 be infidelity. Hang the stick 4 deterrence. Those who r not jealous about their women will not enter paradise. Unlike aging people, youth helped me. If Adam son s dead, his deeds r over except by current charity ,knowledge from which others benefit and a good son who asks Allah mercy 4 him. Saying Sub Han Allah provides u with a palm tree in heaven. Joining relatives s not repaying but joining them when they disjoin u. joining relatives increases your age and livelihood. My nation s still good as long as they fast break fast and don't delay the 4th prayer (maghrib). bashfulness s from belief. The hypocrite has 3 signs: telling lies when talking, not keeping promises and having no honesty. First and final prayers r the heaviest on hypocrites. Saying jazak Allah khairan 2 anyone s the best thanks. Allah doesn't need fasting from those who just leave eating and drinking without leaving false sayings. All my nation enters the paradise except those who refuse. Sahabah asked :who refuses? The prophet said: those who obey me will enter paradise but those who disobey refused. Say on hearing the sunset(4th prayer) call 2 prayer: Allah this s the coming of your night , the going of your day and the voice of your preachers ,so cover my sins. The people with the tallest necks on Judgment Day r those who call 4 prayers. Don't do good if others did or evil if others did but do good and avoid evils whatever others did. Work s worshipping and the higher hand s better than the lower hand. Allah dislikes the unemployed , scurrility and foul mouthed. Those who seek reputation ,Allah will make others see their deeds and give them praise . Tattoos ,wig hair, imitating other sex, hoarding, changing teeth and eyebrows, bribe giving and taking and changing land borders ,bring Allah curse. To stand 40 s better than passing in front of praying person. Fasting a day for Allah sake makes u away from hell and so does secluding in mosques. Wish 2 your brother what u wish 4 yourself. Allah says in hadith: I am as my slave thinks of me (it means u should expect paradise not hell from Allah ) From the Muslim rights s executing his swear. reading every letter in Quran provides u with a charity. Seeking Allah cover for your sins increases livelihood and gives outlet from cares. If the heart s good, all other body organs will be good. Sub Han Allah almighty and thanks 2 Allah r heavy words in scale and liked by Allah. Revealing sexual intercourse secrets s like sex between 2 devils in the public.

The Advertising Council is joining ESPN today to launch a new series of national public service advertisements designed to raise awareness among middle-aged men about the importance of preventive medical testing. The new ads play off concepts created for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) for a men's health campaign that was launched last month. The ads will debut this week on ESPN media. Men are 25 percent less likely than women to have visited the doctor within the past year and are 38 percent more likely than women to have neglected their cholesterol tests. (Source: AHRQ Medical Expenditure Panel Survey, 2005). Furthermore, men are 1.5 times more likely than women to die from heart disease, cancer and chronic lower respiratory diseases (Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2005).

Visa, McDonald's, Coca-Cola, Mercedes Benz, Adidas, Shiseido, Nike, Siemens, Lenovo and Other Major Corporations Sign on as Chinese Media Company Launches New Advertising Network in Six Major Cities Companies have paid about $75 million to sponsor the Beijing games. But there's more to the China consumer market than the 2008 Summer Olympics, and for some companies, advertising in China is a long-term investment. The economy of China is growing at a ten percent annual rate and its 1.3 billion consumers represent a new market for many global and domestic advertisers. Although advertisers currently spend only $1 per month per Chinese consumer*, advertising expenditures are growing at a rapid annual rate. In contrast, other markets, including North America and Europe, are slowing down. And Japan actually has a shrinking ad spend**. Just in time for the games, and for the Shanghai Expo in 2010, Chinese media company Network CN is launching the first phase of its out-of-home advertising network. Large, vibrant LED displays, some with full motion, are reaching millions of urban consumers who are eager to purchase products that help them showcase their newfound spending power. Covering Beijing, Shanghai, Wuhan, Nanjing, Hangzhou and Qingdao, Network CN's network currently consists of 117 roadside LED panels, 10 mega-size LED billboards, 69 light boxes and one mega-size roller-sheet billboard. All of these outdoor advertising panels have been fully installed and are operational. In collaboration with BAMC (Beijing All Media and Culture Group), designated promoter of the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics, Network CN is also serving as representative for BAMC's LCD network in Beijing during the 2008 Olympic year, consisting of 11,000 in-building screens in governmental and office buildings, banks, hotels, hospitals and stadiums. In addition, Network CN has completed the installation of 98 light boxes within Beijing Airport's new international Terminal 3, where many Olympic visitors will deplane and take in their first impressions of China. The first advertiser to take advantage of this prominent and timely advertising opportunity is Visa, an official 2008 Beijing Olympics sponsor. Others marquee brands advertising with Network CN include McDonald's, Coca-Cola, Mercedes Benz, Adidas, Shisheido, Nike, Siemens and Lenovo. For more information, go to: www.ncnincorporated****. Also please see a Network CN press release issued through PRNewswire, which can be located by looking up news under the Company's OTC Bulletin Board ticker symbol, NWCN. * Source: Goldman Sachs industry research, 1/11/2007 ** Lehman Bros. industry research Produced for Network CN Inc.

Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Book 45: Mortgaging -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Volume 3, Book 45, Number 685: Narrated Anas: No doubt, the Prophet mortgaged his armor for barley grams.

Muhammad bin Maslama (got up and) said, "I will kill him." So, Muhammad bin Maslama went to Ka'b and said, "I want a loan of one or two Wasqs of food grains." Ka'b said, "Mortgage your women to me." Muhammad bin Maslama said, "How can we mortgage our women, and you are the most handsome among the Arabs?" He said, "Then mortgage your sons to me." Muhammad said, "How can we mortgage our sons, as the people will abuse them for being mortgaged for one or two Wasqs of food grains? It is shameful for us. But we will mortgage our arms to you." So, Muhammad bin Maslama promised him that he would come to him next time. They (Muhammad bin Maslama and his companions came to him as promised and murdered him. Then they went to the Prophet and told him about it. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Volume 3, Book 45, Number 688: Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, "One can ride the mortgaged animal because of what one spends on it, and one can drink the milk of a milch animal as long as it is mortgaged.

(3.77) Al-Ash'ath bin Qais came to us and asked as to what Abu Abdur-Rehman (i.e. Ibn Mas'ud) was telling you." We related the story to him. On that he said, "He has told the truth. This verse was revealed about me. I had some dispute with another man regarding a well and we took the case before Allah's Apostle. Allah's Apostle said (to me), "Produce two witnesses (to support your claim); otherwise the defendant has the right to take an oath (to refute your claim).' I said, 'The defendant would not mind to take a false oath." Allah's Apostle then said, 'Whoever took a false oath in order to grab someone else's property will meet Allah, Allah will be angry with him.' Allah then revealed what Confirmed it." Al-Ash'ath then recited the following Verse:--"Verily! Those who purchase a small gain at the cost of Allah's covenant, And their oaths . . . (to) . . . they shall have a painful torment!'

More expert business advice from Google’s European Enterprise Director Roberto Solimene, as he explains how Google Apps works for businesses by eliminating unnecessary expenditure, problematic hardware and software, and effectively banks information to help companies succeed: “Again every kind of business is suitable for the use of Google Apps. Originally we thought that it would have been something more beneficial to small or medium sized organisation because they don’t have the funds, they don’t have the resources, and they don’t have the infrastructure to use a hosted service inside their organisation. But we are seeing them more and more that very large organisations are calling us just too just explore how they can use Apps inside their organisation whether it is for a division or whether it is for a specific kind of employee or for the organisation. But we are seeing that everybody now is interested in at least discovering what is on offer on this so called web to zero offering. The most exciting thing is that I save a lot of money; this is only the first of the things. I don’t need any more very complex infrastructure, I don’t need to buy a license for all my employees, I don’t need to buy spam services, I don’t need to buy servers, I don’t need to buy filters for viruses for example or servers for all that software. I don’t need to buy infrastructure for filing and archiving old documents and the mail that a company receives and so on. Just think about the saving that you have in all this infrastructure when you can give everything host to someone that has hundreds of thousands of servers spread around the world. Some people are definitely worried about having all their information online but we are going towards a phase where doing that is going to be the most natural thing to do. Just like when we used to put our money inside a mattress thinking it was safer. But now we take for granted the best place to put our money is actually the bank. If we can build a parallel here we are doing exactly the same thing with the corporate information. We are building as Google all our business around this and Apps is one of the pillars of Google investments. So we will work towards gaining more and more trust of organisations.” See more business news television shows from Roberto Solimene at Google, as he gives his top expert business advice at *******www.yourbusinesschannel**** Find out more about the very latest show releases, as well as other yourBusinessChannel news by visiting our blog at *******www.yourbusinesschannel****/blog.aspx
