Skin bleaching needs to be done with caution & care. To know more about the best skin bleaching creams that work & have no side effects
So this thing called trading is pretty simple, isn’t it? You find yourself a pattern that presents good odds of producing an expected outcome. And then, you just trade it enough times to make the odds come through. Nothing to it! You wonder why most people fail at this activity when it’s such an easy thing to master.
During the process needed to attain a level of mastery in the markets, every trader will reach a stage where he will begin to doubt himself and his abilities. This will typically be the product of several losses in a row, sometimes produced by a faulty use of a strategy, or by lack of follow-trough in the market (usually due to a faulty read of the market’s stage), but in some cases it will just be the product of odds (Yes, my friends, there will be events that will produce unsought outcomes). In any event, the trader will begin to doubt his abilities to enter in a winning position, or even to execute his stops. This creates a vicious circle that is very difficult to break out of without the proper help. Let’s say that Trader Joe has learned this high probability Pristine Strategy, but due to his inexperience, or maybe a faulty use of such a strategy in the wrong market conditions, or just as consequence of odds, our trader has had 5 losses in a row. These losses now begin to play with his psyche.
The next time a trading opportunity appears, our trader will typically let it pass by, since he is afraid of having a new loss on top of the prior 5. But as fate would have it, this one happens to work out as he would have planned it. And so does the next one and the next one too. So now the trader has collected enough courage to trade again, and he takes the next entry… and it fails.
This example encompasses several obstacles that the trader has to overcome in order to become consistent. The first one is the understanding that he shouldn’t consider each trade as the end game, but only as a minor part of “a lifetime of trades”. When our trader looks at 3 or 5 losing trades in a row as part of a larger task, they won’t seem so dire. It’s only when he has had a large percentage of his overall trades being losers that he should evaluate the reasons for this. Even the most astute trader will have several losing trades in a row. Also, in order to attain the odds of a given strategy, you must realize that you’ll have losers, but if you become consistent, those losers will be the minority.

Researchers suggest women with breast cancer be tested,Given vitamin D supplements if needed
More than half of women with breast cancer have low vitamin D levels, British researchers report.
“Women with breast cancer should be tested for vitamin D levels and offered supplements, if necessary,” says researcher Sonia Li, MD, of the Mount Vernon Cancer Centre in Middlesex, England. The findings were presented at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium.
Some studies have suggested a link between low vitamin levels and breast cancer risk and progression, but others have not, she says. No studies have proven cause and effect.
Previous research suggests a biologic rationale for vitamin D putting the brakes on breast cancer development and spread, Li says.
Breast cancer cells have vitamin D receptors, and when these receptors are activated by vitamin D, it triggers a series of molecular changes that can slow cell growth and cause cells to die, she says.
Even if it does not have a direct effect on the tumor, vitamin D is needed to maintain the bone health of women with breast cancer, Li says. That’s especially important given the increasing use of aromatase inhibitors, which carry an increased risk of bone fractures, she says.
Vitamin D is found in some foods, especially milk and fortified cereals, and is made by the body after exposure to sunlight. It is necessary for bone health.
More than 50% of women tested have low vitamin D levels
For the study, Li and colleagues collected blood samples from 166 women with breast cancer and measured their levels of vitamin D.
Of the total, 46% had vitamin D insufficiency, defined as levels between 12.5 and 50 nanomoles per liter (nmol/L) of blood. Another 6% had vitamin D deficiency, with levels lower than 12.5 nmol/L.
When ethnicity was considered, vitamin D levels were lower in Asian women than in white or other women: an average of about 36 nmol/L vs. 61 nmol/L and 39 nmol/L, respectively.
The researchers theorized that vitamin D levels would be higher in the summer, when there are more daylight hours, but the study showed no association between vitamin D levels and seasons.
Last month, the U.S. Institute of Medicine issued updated guidelines stating that a blood level of 50 nmol/L (or 20 nanograms/milliliter) is sufficient for 97% of people.
Edith Perez, MD, director of the breast cancer program at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Fla., tells WebMD that there is not enough evidence to support routine testing of women with breast cancer.
“But if women happen to be tested and have levels below that called for in the Institute of Medicine report, we prescribe supplements,” she says. “That’s not just for breast cancer, but for bone health, too.”
This study was presented at a medical conference. The findings should be considered preliminary as they have not yet undergone the “peer review” process, in which outside experts scrutinize the data prior to publication in a medical journal.

African art is a traditional art, which is followed even now in the African continents. Africans have a great passion for their art. At first the African tribes designed several art which were focused on human as a figure. Later the art focused on living things mainly on wild life. Most of the art depicts about their culture which varied from region to region. There were several differences in the art which were designed in many regions. The art basically describes the aggressive behavior and the bravery which they possessed. African artwork is mainly done using wood. They carved the wood to get the desired structure as they wished. It represents the hard efforts which they have laid down to get a perfect finish in the work. The artwork helps us to understand about the culture followed in Africa in the past generations. They are not just artworks but a precious treasure which should be safeguarded by us. The secret behind the existence of African art is that its artworks are crafted with great passion. Many ancient artworks have vanished nowadays, because the artworks changed its style according to this changing world but African artworks follow the same old tradition which makes it more stylish and unique.
Many artworks are also designed using stone. African sculptures are very different from one another. The sculptures describe about different cultures which existed in Africa. The sculptures differ from one location to another. The shapes of the sculptures were very different, some possessed elongated face, angular shapes and others had heart shaped faces. Most of the sculptures describes about their region and about their culture. The sculptures possessed an aggressive face which exposes the bold and brave looks of the Africans. The sculptures depict the skills of the Africans and also about the way of their lived. Many describe about their hunting styles which differs from region to region.
African masks are perfect artifacts of incredible creativity that tells about the Africans accuracy. There are several varieties of masks available. The masks were mostly designed from woods. They also differ from region to region. It describes about the face structure of the Africans in a better way. African masks look aggressive and brings a fear into us when we look at it.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (PRWEB) November 17, 2014
Lewis Kuller, M.D., Dr.P.H., former chair of the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health’s Department of Epidemiology, today will receive the prestigious John Snow Award from the American Public Health Association (APHA) and the Royal Society for Public Health in England.
The award, which annually recognizes an outstanding scientist for excellence in epidemiologic practice or research, will be presented to Dr. Kuller in New Orleans at the 2014 APHA annual meeting.
“APHA’s recognition of our work in cardiovascular disease prevention, women’s health and, more recently, aging is a testament to the skill and expertise of our team at Pitt Public Health,” said Dr. Kuller, professor emeritus. “One of my mentors, Dr. Abraham Lilienfeld, was the first recipient of this award, so it is a true honor to follow in his footsteps.”
Awardees are chosen for their contributions to the improvement of human health or substantial reduction in burden of disease through innovations in public health practice based on clear epidemiologic foundations or implementation of epidemiologic approaches to the solution of health problems. Their contributions are practical, explicit and applied, rather than theoretical or implicit.
“Dr. Kuller was selected because of not only his enormous body of work contributing to the field of epidemiology, but also his impact on students and the next generation of epidemiologists,” said E. Oscar Alleyne, Dr.P.H., M.P.H., director of epidemiology at the Rockland County Health Department in New York and chair-elect of the APHA Epidemiology Section.
The Snow Award is one of the oldest in the field of epidemiology. It commemorates John Snow, M.D., a physician who practiced in 19th century Britain and is credited as one of the founding fathers of epidemiology, which is the branch of medicine that deals with the incidence, distribution and possible control of diseases and other factors relating to health. Dr. Snow used disease incidence data and mapping to determine that a cholera outbreak in the mid-1850s was associated with a public water pump. He convinced authorities to stem the outbreak by disabling the pump, which researchers later discovered had been dug near a cesspit.
Dr. Kuller made significant contributions in the study of cardiovascular disease and the use of noninvasive techniques, such as ultrasound, to detect early heart disease in people without symptoms. He is also recognized for his research on the risks and prevention of cancer, as well as the study of Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. Kuller received his medical degree from George Washington University in 1959 and completed his residency in medicine at Maimonides Hospital in Brooklyn, N.Y., in 1961. He continued his education at Johns Hopkins University School of Hygiene and Public Health, receiving a doctorate in public health in 1966 and going on to join the faculty. In 1972, Dr. Kuller came to Pitt Public Health to chair its Department of Epidemiology, which he led for 30 years.
He has published more than 300 scientific articles, mostly in the field of epidemiology, and was recognized in a recent Thomson Reuters list as one of the most highly cited researchers worldwide.
Windows 7 is the successor to Windows vista and Microsoft may have finally done what it was supposed to do years ago. From the get go, the new gui(graphical user interface) looks much better but similar to Vista’s. October 22, Windows 7 comes out so if your waiting to get a computer, you should wait so you can get a much better OS.The taskbar has a much cleaner look and programs are no longer minimized to the bottom as tabs. They are little icons as you can see above and when you mouse over it, it will show a small transparent window of all opened windows in that application. I have been using 7 for about a couple of months(free beta release) and everything worked right out the box. Drivers(files needed for certain hardware to work) seem to be centralized and install by them self without too much user interaction. For example, on my Dell Inspiron 1525 when I first installed vista, I had to do a cumbersome job of finding the drivers for the web cam and other devices for it work properly over the web. While that may not be a huge feat for the computer savvy, it is still annoying nonetheless.
How does it perform?
The clunky, all in your face UAC(User Account Control), and other annoyances of vista are still here, but does not pop up too often. The speed of windows starting until it is logged on and onto a usable desktop is indeed faster or feels like so on 7. I was surprised because usually Vista takes a lot of time to start up because of so many resources starting up with the computer. I didn’t actually measure or benchmark this and plus I rather not get too technical as it really doesn’t matter anyway as my focus is not to bombard you with irrelevant jargon that most people can’t comprehend. There may be some tech savvy readers reading and that’s good and all but this is still the blog for the layman.
What’s new about it and what makes it better?
Again to reiterate what I said earlier, if it’s one thing I liked right off the bat with 7 is the new GUI. There are customizable themes with their own wallpapers and window colors and appearance. On earlier versions of Windows, I had to download this program called “Winwall” just to periodically change my wallpapers. With Windows 7 I don’t have to do this anymore as it has it’s own built in wallpaper changer. On the Mac it had this years ago and I was always surprised as to why windows didn’t implement this feature.
Another cool feature I like is the Libraries feature. It allows you to have one folder like for example your Music folder, organize all your music files even if they are on different parts of the laptop. This is handy because sometimes I have music on my desktop(used to), root of the Hard drive, in another user profile and as such it makes it annoying to locate all the folder and files and drag them to the music folder. You can also add to the library folders on an external hard drive.
Okay that’s nice but what if I like Vista?
Well nothing is wrong with liking vista if that’s what you prefer. Vista did fix a couple of bugs from when it first came out with it’s subsequent service packs though. If you ever feel like upgrading though they have several options. There was a $ 50 upgrade fee but I believe that’s been done now.
* Windows 7 Home Premium (Upgrade): $ 119.99
* Windows 7 Professional (Upgrade): $ 199.99
* Windows 7 Ultimate (Upgrade): $ 219.99
And the estimated prices for the full Windows 7 package are:
* Windows 7 Home Premium (Full): $ 199.99
* Windows 7 Professional (Full): $ 299.99
* Windows 7 Ultimate (Full): $ 319.99
That seems like a much better price as I remember off head Home premium for Vista used to cost $ 250+. If your content with Vista or XP, you might still find a good reason to use Windows 7.
I haven’t really noticed anything horribly wrong with 7 yet but one thing I think they should have is a have Windows Live mail and it’s other similar programs installed already. I love using Windows live mail and checking my email as soon as I get them but why couldn’t they have it installed from the get go? Another thing I don’t like is their version of sharing files with this thing called homegroup. It makes things a bit more complicated as if they weren’t already. You have to now join the homegroup which requires a homegroup password and the worst thing about it is only Windows 7 computers are supported. While this may not be a problem for future consumers who might only have Windows 7 computers, what about existing XP and Vista users? I wouldn’t want to sit there and have to upgrade my old computer if I like the OS but rather keep it just in case. Other than that, Windows 7 has more pro’s than con’s to me and I hope you found this a good deal of information. What do you think about changing OS’s?

CPIC Researchers Illustrate the Value of Focusing Cancer Research on Distinct Subgroups Within the Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander Populations
Fremont, California (PRWEB) November 10, 2014
The Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) population is collectively the most rapidly growing racial/ethnic group in the U.S., and is very diverse, representing more than 30 countries and 100 languages. Yet most cancer research still considers the AANPHI population in aggregate, as one entity, masking important differences across specific groups, according to researchers at the Cancer Prevention Institute of California (CPIC).
“Not only do they bear unique burdens of incidence and outcomes for certain cancer types, members of the AANHPI population have substantial variability in cancer incidence and survival patterns across their ethnic groups,” said CPIC research scientist Scarlett Lin Gomez, Ph.D., lead author of an editorial in the current issue of Cancer Epidemiology Biomarkers and Prevention (CEBP).
“AANHPI communities are flourishing across the country. We have a tremendous opportunity to draw insights into the causes of cancer and prognosis/survivorship by leveraging the heterogeneity within these populations,” Dr. Gomez said.
To illustrate the value of focusing cancer research on distinct subgroups within the AANHPI population, CPIC’s Asian American Working Group led a special section in the November issue of CEBP. Dr. Gomez served as guest editor of the section, which includes seven original articles – three from CPIC authors — and a commentary on the importance of understanding this diverse community.
Summary of AANHPI Research in November Issue of CEBP
Cancer in Asian American and Pacific Islander Populations: Linking Research and Policy to Identify and Reduce Disparities
o The number of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the U.S. grew 46% from 2000 to 2010, and will more than double by 2060. These communities represent more than 30 different countries. Researchers, community leaders and policymakers must work together to address the unique challenges of this diverse community.
o Tung Thanh Nguyen, University of California San Francisco, and Chair of the President’s Advisory Commission on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, is lead author.
Patient and Provider Characteristics Associated with Colorectal, Breast, and Cervical Cancer Screening among Asian Americans
o Screening rates for AANHPIs improve when patients and physicians speak the same language and, for mammography and cervical cancer screening, when patients and their physicians are of the same gender. Culturally-tailored online health resources also may help improve preventive cancer screening in Asian populations. This study demonstrates the efficiency of using large-scale electronic health record (EHR) data to focus on specific ethnic groups.
o Caroline A. Thompson of the Palo Alto Medical Foundation Research Institute is lead author.
Disaggregating Data on Asian American and Pacific Islander Women to Provide New Insights on Potential Exposures to Hazardous Air Pollutants in California
o Recent studies suggest considerable variations in the incidence of breast cancer by AANHPI ethnic group. This study combines demographics data and air toxics data to examine average concentrations of hazardous air pollutants in areas with higher numbers of AANHPI residents. The authors demonstrate the importance of disaggregated data and highlight environmental exposure disparities among ethnic minority neighborhoods.
o Thu Quach of CPIC is lead author.
Chronic Hepatitis B and Liver Cancer Risks among Asian Immigrants in New York City: Results from a Large, Community-Based Screening, Evaluation, and Treatment Program
o Asian Americans have a high prevalence of hepatitis B infection, the major cause of liver cancer. This study found significant differences in liver cancer risk among Asian subgroups, varying by gender, age and specific place of birth, pointing to the need to identify those at higher risk for hepatitis B infection and target them for screening and treatment.
o Henry J. Pollack of New York University School of Medicine is lead author.
1,3-Butadiene Exposure and Metabolism among Japanese American, Native Hawaiian, and White Smokers
o Differences in lung cancer risk among Native Hawaiians, Whites, and Japanese Americans may be explained by variations in the ability to metabolize certain carcinogens contained in cigarette smoke. Differences in excretion levels are partly due to genetics. Levels are higher in whites and lower in Japanese-Americans, which is consistent with each group’s risk of lung cancer.
o Sungshim Lani Park of the University of Southern California is lead author.
Lung Cancer Incidence Trends by Histology Type among Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander Populations in the United States, 1990–2010
o Lung cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers in the AANHPI population. Researchers examined different types of lung cancer in distinct ethnic groups and found significant increases in the incidence of adenocarcinoma among Filipino and Korean women, who have a low prevalence of smoking, and Chinese men. The findings underscore the need for research into factors other than smoking in distinct populations.
o Iona Cheng and Gem Le of CPIC are co-lead authors.
Disaggregated Data and Beyond: Future Queries in Cancer Control Research
o A commentary on the “model minority” myth and why it persists, providing context for social and cultural factors that shape health and disease for AANHPI populations, and strategies needed to advance research and health policy.
o Anh Bao Nguyen of the National Cancer Institute is the lead author.
According to Dr. Gomez and the Asian American Working Group at CPIC, federally funded research for AANHPI populations is sparse. These groups are not well represented in cancer epidemiologic cohorts, leading to limited availability of relevant and targeted information needed to study growing populations of AANHPIs.
“Through investing in cancer research, we have a unique opportunity to accelerate the availability of cancer knowledge that is useful and impactful for the many distinct Asian American, native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander population groups that reside throughout the country,” Dr. Gomez said.
CPIC and the Stanford Cancer Institute supported this work.

It is every woman’s dream to have a gorgeous figure with large and attractive breasts that make heads turn, especially those of the males. Not surprisingly then, women with smaller breasts always feel timid, and lack confidence when they confront their counterparts with larger breasts. They are always low on confidence and are constantly on the lookout to increase breast size naturally, without surgery and pills.
The simplest and the most natural way to increase breast size would be to massage the breasts morning and evening for at least 20-30 minutes. This increases the blood circulation and motivates the breast growth, as the breast increasing hormones get a boost with this activity.
A little of almond oil, geranium oil and Ylang Ylang oil should be mixed to create the oil for massage for the desired increase in breast size. The oil is spread on the palms and the hands are rubbed to warm them a little. These warm hands are then placed on the breasts for massaging; the right hand moves in the clockwise direction and the left hand moves in the anti-clockwise direction. The hands take a break to warm them again, and the exercise is then continued. This method of breast massaging is known to have come from the Taoist massage exercises that existed in the olden times, and is very effective to increase breast size.
Females with smaller breasts are likely to suffer from a hormonal imbalance, which might be producing testosterone that is produced in males, who obviously have a flat chest. These females need to eat a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables, and foods that produce estrogen, which will eventually increase breast size resulting in larger and rounder breasts. Chicken is one such food item that increases estrogen. However, women with very large breasts (that look ugly) should cut down on the chicken foods, to reduce their breast size and get the desired results.
The ideal grains that produce estrogen are brown rice and oats. Fresh fruits like apples, pomegranates, papayas and plums are good for health and increase breast size too. Vegetables like tomatoes, potatoes, cucumbers and eggplants help in producing estrogen as well. Seeds like those of pumpkin or sunflower can be added to foods, or can be consumed as roasted or fried. Spices like ginger, clove, thyme and turmeric are age-old herbs for most ailments, and increase blood circulation and produce estrogen, to boost the confidence of those with smaller breasts.
Fenugreek is a vegetable that produces healthy tissues in blood. It is welcome in both its green and dried forms, and has an appealing look and great aroma.
Staying away from junk food is very important, as it has no nutritional value. Moreover, it could lead to wrinkles and sagging in otherwise healthy breasts. Avoiding coffee, alcohol and smoking is the best of all favors that any woman can do to herself. Drinking plenty of water and having sufficient and peaceful sleep can also contribute in the increase in breast size over a period of time.

Each cold weather season and during each major power outage, the Life Support Technologies group (LST) sees a spike in Carbon Monoxide (CO) poisoning victims at its northeastern U.S. hospital-based hyperbaric medicine facilities. Potentially fatal carbon monoxide poisoning can be avoided with a little knowledge and some planning: maintain appliances and engines in good working condition, and do not operate charcoal grills, fuel-burning space heaters, portable generators, car or truck engines in confined spaces.
The spike in CO cases during the first cold weather spells can usually be traced to improperly serviced heating system, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. The CPSC advises having heating units serviced before cold weather sets in. Spikes in CO cases resulting from winter storms and power outages is attributed to the increased use of gas-powered emergency electrical generators, the use of fuel-burning space heaters in enclosed areas, and even people who try and seek shelter in their running vehicles.
Carbon monoxide is an odorless, tasteless, highly poisonous gas emitted by car and truck engines, furnaces, fuel-burning space heaters, charcoal grills, cooking ranges, water heaters, fireplaces, portable generators, wood-burning stoves, and smoke. When inhaled, CO bonds 230 times more readily with the blood’s hemoglobin than oxygen; CO prevents hemoglobin from transporting oxygen. When not fatal, CO can cause serious loss of cognitive function if not detected early and properly treated.
Symptoms of CO poisoning include: dull headache, weakness, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, shortness of breath, confusion, blurred vision, and loss of consciousness. CO poisoning symptoms may be misdiagnosed as flu, food poisoning or a host of other maladies.
It is advisable to install a carbon monoxide detector near the sleeping area, but away from appliances or humid areas, according to the CPSC.
When CO poisoning is diagnosed, the standard of care is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. HBOT involves the patient breathing 100% oxygen while they are under increased atmospheric pressure inside a hyperbaric chamber. Usually, multiple HBOT treatments are required to completely break the carbon monoxide-hemoglobin bond so that the victim’s blood can again properly transport life-sustaining oxygen.
Carbon Monoxide can overcome unsuspecting individuals or entire families while they sleep. The best treatment results are obtained when medical treatment occurs promptly after the onset of CO poisoning.
In the event that carbon monoxide poisoning is suspected, it is crucial that victims immediately get away from the source of the carbon monoxide. This may entail evacuating family and occupants from inside a house. Everyone who has been exposed — or potentially exposed — to carbon monoxide must then be taken promptly to a hospital for evaluation. While waiting for transportation to the hospital and while being transported, persons suspected of having been exposed to carbon monoxide should breathe 100% medical grade oxygen.
