Blucigs for the new generation of smokers

Like many folks, I came from a generation when smoking was not the health hazard that it has proven to be today. There is no disputing, inhaling the toxic fumes from a cigarette will eventually make you sick and kill you not to mention the fact that you will no longer look cool or even be accepted in many places including several nearby cities in which controversial smoking bans have made headlines recently.

If you have reached the point in your life where you want to quit but need some help, consider trying Blucigs, An electronic cigarette has about the same amount of nicotine as a pack of regular cigarettes allowing you to inhale a flavorful vapor instead of a poisonous cloud of smoke. Blucigs are the ecig alternative that so many turn to for support. Convenient and stylish, you will be amazed that there really is a quit smoking option that works.

What have you got to lose? Without your health what else do you have?

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound HIFU Provides New Hope for Prostrate Cancer Patients

Most men with early prostate cancer typically have no symptoms which makes the fact that nearly one-quarter of a million men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer each year even more staggering and begs the question, what can be done to treat those afflicted. HIFU stands for High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) and is a revolutionary outpatient procedure used to treat localized or organ confined prostate cancer . The minimally invasive procedure uses the power of ultrasound waves (acoustic surgery) to quickly and efficiently destroy the prostate gland, along with any cancer it may contain, while lowering the risks associated with more traditional prostate cancer remedies.

The High Intensity Focused Ultrasound treatment is delivered through a specialized probe inserted into the rectum using a process very similar to light being focused onto paper with a magnifying glass. From the probe, a high intensity ultrasonic beam is focused onto the prostate monitored with computer control along with simultaneous ultrasound imaging to identify the prostate.
In this process the prostatic tissue,including the prostate cancer is heated to about 90 degrees Celsius and destroyed. Organs and tissue adjacent to the prostate are unharmed. The destroyed prostatic cancerous tissue is eventually expelled during urination. The HIFU procedure itself usually takes 2-3 hours to complete and after about an hour in the recovery room, the patient is typically able to walk away and resume his life. Anesthesia is not required, but is often recommended. The treatment can also be combined with radiotherapy or chemotherapy.

The first commercial HIFU machine, called the Sonablate 200, was developed by the American company Focus Surgery, Inc. (Milipitas, CA) and launched in Europe in 1994 after receiving CE approval, bringing a first medical validation of the technology for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). HIFU treatment of prostate cancer is currently an approved therapy in Europe, Canada, South Korea, Australia, and elsewhere. Clinical trials for the  United States  Sonablate 500 are currently ongoing for prostate cancer patients and those who have experienced radiation failure.

Police Neighbor

Thanks to Roman May

My neighbor just came over to return a cupcake pan she had borrowed for her daughter’s birthday. We got to talking, like we always seem to do, and she mentioned to me that they are getting ADT security soon. I was surprised to hear that because I’ve always felt so safe where we live, but she said it was her husband’s idea. He is a police officer, so that kinda makes me concerned. If he wants to get an alarm system, than he probably is right about that. He knows the ins and outs of what goes on in this town, and he sees crime and violence every day. She said it would surprise me some of the things he sees going on in our little town. When my husband gets home tonight, I’m going to mention it to him to see what he thinks. Now that she brought it to my attention, I’ve got it on my mind and think that maybe it would be a good idea for us as well. We’ll see.

Eye on it

Post contributed by Hilton Miranda

I found this great new website that helps you save money. It is called eyeona.com. It it pronounced like slang “eye on it”. You can use your smart phone to connect to the internet after taking a picture of a barcode. When I am out shopping and see something that I like, I take a picture of the barcode. When I get home, I use my clear tv internet to upload the picture to the “eye on it website”. You can create a profile and manage the things that you are interested in. The website will track the item on-line and alert you to when the item actually goes on sale. For example , the other day I found a really great pair of frye boots that I wanted. Of course they were a ton of money at the store, but “eye on it” found them half off at an internet retailer’s site! It was so awesome!! I just couldn’t believe it. I am really excited and happy about this website. I just want to let everyone know about it! It is a great way to save money and get the things that you really want.

Family Vacation

Posted by Gaylord Campbell

Our family does its best to go on a vacation at least once a year. Now, it’s not always something extravagant, but it’s always a chance for us to get away for a few days together to enjoy each other’s company. It gets so hard when we’re at home to spend time together. My husband and I both work, and both of the kids are involved in multiple extracurricular activities. Sometimes it feels like all we can do to make it through our days, eat a dinner, go to sleep, and wake up the next morning to do it all again. That’s why our vacations are so important to us. It definitely gets tough some years to swing it, so we do our best throughout the rest of the year to save as much money as we can for the vacation. One of the easiest ways we have found so far to save is to switch our energy providers! We’re lucky to be able to select our own based on price. Just by changing our provider last year we saved a ton of money for our trip. Take a look at shop electricity rates TEXAS to see if you can save!

Mom and Me

Guest post written by Christine Duncan

My mom and I splurged on Dish Television a few years back and it’s been the reason for my late in life change in occupation. I realized one day I was watching show after show about psychology (Intervention, Hoarders, etc.) and I thought to myself “why don’t I do something with people who need my help?” So I’m about to graduate with my counseling degree and that’s making me feel like I’m finally going to be doing what I’ve been meant to do all along – I can’t wait to get started. I really wish I hadn’t wasted so much time working at school but it was a good solution when my daughter was young and I needed something flexible. I can’t wait to get started on my new career path and even though I’m pretty late in the game I’m happy to know that I’m finally going to be pursuing my calling. There’s nothing standing in the way of me and what I was meant to do and that’s really exciting to me!

Women everywhere know the importance of a perfect complexion, which is why Tanda skin care solutions are a face friendly favorite and the best beauty buzz for a flawless complexion. Imagine no pain, no irritating redness and best of all, clear skin!  The Zap is an innovative high-tech device that puts the power of three proven skin care technologies in the palm of your hand.  It combines the same powerful blue light technology used by dermatologists with sonic vibration and gentle warming to give you clinically proven clearing results in the convenience and comfort of your own home. Tanda’s Zap uses blue LED light that is scientifically proven to kill break-out causing bacteria, treating existing blemishes and preventing further outbreaks.

On the other hand, if your complexion seems to be aging faster than you would like, your skin may look and feel dull or rough with fine lines and wrinkles. As we age, both deflation and deterioration make skin appear older than we wish, leaving us with a less than perfect complexion. Deflation is a loss of volume, caused by a reduction in collagen levels. Deterioration makes skin feel rough in texture, and appears as an overall facial dullness with fine lines and wrinkles. The new Luxe uses a super-luminous LED array to deliver concentrated beams of red light for luxurious, smooth, glowing skin.

Red light technology has been used by dermatologists and skin care professional for its rejuvenating benefits for many years. Proven to boost overall cellular energy, and increasing our body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, Luxe effectively turns back the clock to make you look and feel more youthful, rested and refreshed.
