New Technique May Protect The Female Egg During The Freezing Process A growing number of women are now having their first babies well into their thirties and even in their forties. There are several reasons for waiting to start a family. Women who wait usually have more financial security, more emotional maturity and more time to commit to their marriages and their careers before focusing their energy on children. Unfortunately, it's a biological reality that the female egg becomes less viable over time – unlike male sperm. The egg cell is also much harder to freeze because it contains a lot of water that can crystallize during the freezing process. Now, a company called ViaCell is testing a new technique that is designed to protect the egg during freezing. The multiple site clinical trial is expected to enroll approximately three hundred healthy women, age twenty-one to thirty-five, who are currently seeking fertility treatment to demonstrate births from previously frozen eggs. Currently, there is not an FDA approved product for egg freezing. The study is expected to be completed in 2009, and if the results are positive, it may give women more options when planning their families. Produced for ViaCell, Inc

Dr. Lam lectures on the Asian eyelid and focuses on technique as well as a new classification for the aging Asian eyelid which he devised. Dr. Lam has classified the aging Asian eyelid into three types: the aging Asian eyelid with a natural crease, the aging Asian eyelid without a natural crease, and the aging Asian eyelid that has a previously surgically made crease. Each scenario requires a different approach to attain the best results. The aging Asian eyelid with a natural crease may be thought of as very similar to a standard Occidental eyelid. However, there is one major distinction. If the extra skin is simply removed from the upper eyelid for the aging Asian eyelid, the crease will oftentimes be made too high, which will appear unnatural. As mentioned, Dr. Lam believes that this higher crease also looks bad on the Caucasian patient but looks exceptionally unnatural in the Asian patient. Accordingly, if Dr. Lam needs to remove some extra skin for the individual with a natural crease, he will almost always perform fat grafting simultaneously to create the natural convexity of a youthful eyelid shape but also to maintain the eyelid crease height. Phrased another way, fat grafting permits maintenance of the eyelid crease height by pushing the eyelid crease back down to a natural height after skin removal alone raises the crease unnaturally. The aging Asian eyelid that has had a previous surgically created crease can also pose a unique problem. If the crease created in the past was natural, i.e., very little fat removed and a low crease configuration fashioned, then the eyelid can practically be treated the same as an eyelid with a natural pre-existing crease. However, oftentimes, the Asian patient had an aggressive "Westernization" procedure performed many years ago that appeared very unnatural at the time but somehow over time has become increasingly more natural in appearance. The reason for this change is that the loss of fat in the upper eyelid, increase in skin laxity, and brow descent have camouflaged the previously very high crease that was present years ago. In order to determine whether this is the case, you can simply lift up the eyelid to see where the crease was placed. If the crease appears very deep and high when lifting the eyelid up, most likely the previously made crease is very unnatural. Also, even though the crease has fallen over time, it can still look a bit unnatural because the thickened brow skin that descends downward still does not resemble the thin eyelid skin of a natural, lower crease. Here is the problem: if the surgeon simply removes upper-eyelid skin without paying attention to the patient's prior surgery, the result can unmask the previously very high eyelid crease and return the patient to an unnatural result. A browlift can also create the same problem since the elevated brow can expose the former unnatural crease height. A combination of a browlift and upper-eyelid skin removal can be a disaster. Accordingly, there are very few options for such a patient. Fat grafting alone can provide limited but safe rejuvenation of the upper eyelid without causing the problem mentioned above.

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).

Watch these flowers change color over time! If you put a white flower in a vase with some ink it will slowly change color. More amazing: If you cut the stem a of a plant in half and put the halves in 2 vases with different ink, the flower will show 2 separate colors!

That is absolutely dangerous sport ever....... A soapbox car (also variously known as a soapbox cart, and especially in Australia, billy cart) is a motorless vehicle capable of holding a driver (usually a child) built for the purpose of racing or recreation. Propelled by gravity, soapbox cars can reach upwards of 50 km/h (30 miles per hour). Originally, soapbox cars were built from orange crates and rollerskate wheels, but have grown more sophisticated over time, with materials like aluminum and fiberglass being utilized.In the United Kingdom a soapbox car is called a buggy, trolley, cart or cartie. It is also sometimes called a go-kart, although that more usually refers to a similar vehicle with a motor. In Scotland they are described as a bogie.

who we can blame when this happen to us? A window is an opening in an otherwise solid and opaque surface that allows the passage of light and, if not fixed, air. Windows are usually glazed or covered in some other transparent or translucent material.A window is an opening in a wall that lets light and possibly air into the room and allows occupants to see out. Primitive windows were just holes. Later, they were covered with animal hide, cloth, or wood. Shutters that could be opened and closed came next. Over time, windows were built that both protected the inhabitants from the elements and transmitted light: mullioned glass windows, which joined multiple small pieces of glass with leading, paper windows, flattened pieces of translucent animal horn, and plates of thinly sliced marble. Mullioned glass windows were the windows of choice among European well-to-do, whereas paper windows were economical and widely used in ancient China and Japan.

Phonetic Faces is an interactive mobile visual installation in public space that allows people to both contribute their image to a shared display and collaborate with others to create a collage of images using their mobile phones. While in front of the installation, visitors call a free 1-890 number which prompts them to choose images to collage together and allows them to take a new picture of themselves to add the archive. The installation allows up to four people to simultaneously call in and chose photographs to add to the evolving collage. The result is a visual composition of visitors over time to the installation. Ideally, the project would be installed in a public space such as a bus stop or another "waiting" point to allow for a constant influx of new images and collages to collect over time.

http://live.pirillo.com - The last digital picture frame I had started off great. Over time, the software just didn't do the things I needed it to. I decided to give eStarling's new frame a try. If it lives up to the advertising, it's going to be excellent.

http://www.SexyFatLoss.com There is no hard and fast answer to how much a person should weigh in order to be healthy. But, women need to be concerned about weight because it can and does affect overall health. Obesity, or being overweight, can result in premature death and can contribute to many problems, such as heart disease, high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, diabetes, cancer, breathing problems, arthritis, and problems with pregnancy, labor and delivery. The first, and best, thing to do is to talk with your health care provider about your weight. Together, you can talk about what a healthy weight is for you, based on your height, build (bone size, amount of muscle) and age. You can also use a tool called the Body Mass Index (BMI) to give you a pound range for a healthy weight. You take your weight and height and see where you fall on the BMI table for adults (see below). There is also a handy BMI calculator at the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute's web site (see resources at the end of this FAQ). Some general guidelines for losing weight safely are: • Eat fewer calories. The best formula for losing weight is to decrease the number of calories you get while increasing your physical activity every day. Depending on how active you are, you may need between 1,500 — 2,500 calories a day. A safe plan is to eat 300 to 500 fewer calories a day to lose 1 to 2 pounds a week. • Lose weight slowly. It is best to aim for losing 1/2 to 2 pounds a week. By improving eating and exercise habits, you will develop a healthier lifestyle. And, this will help you to control your weight over time. You will also lower your chances of getting heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes. 'Crash' diets may take off pounds faster, but can cause you to gain back even more pounds than you lost after you stop the diet. • Exercise. Get active for at least 30 minutes every day. You don't have to train for a marathon to be active! Brisk walking, gardening, riding a bicycle, tennis and dancing all count as exercise. You can also break up the 30 minutes into three 10-minute periods. To get even more active every day, you can do things like park farther away from the mall in the parking lot and take the stairs instead of the elevator. The idea is to use up more calories than you eat each day. This will keep the calories from being stored as fat in your body. • Eat less fat and sugar. This will help lower the number of calories you eat each day. Select foods whose labels say low, light or reduced to describe calories or fat, including milk products and cheese. Eat lean types of meat, poultry, and fish. Eat less sugar and fewer sweets (don't forget that soda and juice can have lots of sugar). Drink less or no alcohol. • Eat a wide variety of foods, including starches and dairy products. This helps your body to get the nutrients and vitamins it needs to be healthy. Include plenty of vegetables, fruits, grain products and whole grains each day. Don't skip dairy products — there are many good tasting low, no, and reduced fat milks, yogurts, cheeses, ice creams, and other products to choose from. Proper calcium intake is needed for all women to prevent bone loss. Starch is an important source of energy that all bodies need, even when a person is trying to lose weight. It is found in foods like potatoes, rice, pasta, bread, beans, and some vegetables. Foods high in starch can become high in fat and calories when you eat them in large amounts, or when they are made with rich sauces, oils, or other high-fat toppings like butter, sour cream, or mayonnaise. Stick to starchy foods that are high in fiber, like whole grains, beans, and peas. • Practice portion control. Eat smaller amounts of food at each meal. Let go of belonging to the 'clean plate club.' Don't feel like you have to eat everything on your plate, even when eating out. You can also try eating more small meals throughout the day, rather than three large meals. • Get support. It can be hard to start a weight loss program, particularly if you are out of shape and not used to exercising. Ask your family and friends for support. Try to find an exercise buddy. Make your activity fun and social — go on a walk or hike with a friend or learn a new sport like tennis or ice-skating. • Treat yourself (once in a while). When trying to lose weight, we all feel tempted to 'cheat' by eating a favorite, rich food like cake or cookies. But, sometimes it can be helpful to eat a small amount of a favorite food. This may keep you from craving it and overeating if you do 'cheat.'
