FACEBOOK FACES LAWSUIT

2010-03-01T10:57:34.489+08:00

Facebook this week was awarded a patent pertaining to streaming "feed" technology -- more specifically, "dynamically providing a news feed about a user of a social network," complementing another patent filing that has been published but not yet approved.

The implications for this, as AllFacebook.com pointed out earlier on Thursday, are far-flung: Facebook may choose to pursue action against other social-media sites that potentially violate this patent.(image)

2010-02-28T11:26:05.358+08:00

HIVOLCS Tsunami Alert Level is now 2. The concerned public is advised to BE ON ALERT FOR UNUSUAL WAVES. Based on tsunami wave models and early tide gauge records of the tsunami in the Pacific, coastal areas in Philippine provinces fronting the Pacific Ocean are expected to experience wave heights of at most one meter. The first tsunami waves will arrive between 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM 28 February 2010 (Sunday afternoon Philippine time) and may not always be the largest. These waves may continue for hours.
People are advised to stay away from the shoreline during this period. People should not go to the coast to watch the tsunami. People whose houses are very near coastal areas facing the Pacific Ocean are strongly advised to go farther inland.

Boats in harbors, estuaries or shallow coastal water should return to shore. Secure your boat and move away from the waterfront. Boats already at sea during this period should stay offshore in deep waters until further advised.

Coastal areas fronting the Pacific Ocean of the following provinces should keep watch:

TSUNAMI ARRIVED AT AUSTRALIA, NO BIG WAVES REPORTED

2010-02-28T08:14:00.527+08:00

SYDNEY - Australian officials on Sunday recorded the first effects of a wide-ranging tsunami generated by the Chile earthquake, reporting a rise in sea levels but no major waves.

Water levels surged by a few centimetres off Tasmania, they said, warning of rises of up to 40 centimeters (16 inches) and strong currents for several hours rolling up Australia's east coast.

"At the moment we're really in the first few minutes of it," Alasdair Hainsworth, the Bureau of Meteorology's acting assistant director of services, told AFP.

"It's sea levels rising by just a couple of centimetres at the moment."

People were urged to stay away from east coast beaches after the massive 8.8-magnitude quake hit Chile, killing 214 people and sending giant waves speeding across the Pacific.

"We're not expecting to see any significant water inundation but we're still urging people to stay away from the water's edge and stay out of the water," Hainsworth said.

"It's likely to cause strong currents. This could occur for the next four to six hours at least."

But hundreds of people ignored the warnings, heading down to Sydney beaches despite fears that the massive earthquake would trigger a tsunami.

At the popular eastern Sydney beach of Bondi, scores of swimmers ventured into the water while in nearby Coogee people lined the promenade above the sand to watch for any unusual waves.

Bondi lifesaver Jacob Waxs said about 100 people were in the water despite being told it was dangerous and that lifesavers had ordered all beaches in New South Wales closed.

"Unfortunately we cannot order people off the beach, we can only advise," he told AFP.

"Initially everybody got out, however, people seem to be going back in and the tsunami warning is still active."

"The surfers here in Bondi will still be out there when there's a shark alarm," he added.

The New South Wales State Emergency Service (SES) has issued official warnings for people to stay away from the state's coastal areas.

"Do not go to the coast to watch the tsunami, as there is the possibility of dangerous, localised flooding of the immediate foreshore," the warning stated.

"Boats in harbours, estuaries or shallow coastal water should return to shore. Secure your boat and move away from the waterfront. Vessels already at sea should stay offshore in deep water until further advised."

FRENCH POLYNESIA ON TSUNAMI ALERT AFTER CHILE QUAKE

2010-02-28T00:15:06.522+08:00

PAPEETE - Authorities in French Polynesia issued a warning as a tsunami raced across the Pacific following a massive earthquake in Chile on Saturday.

The high commissioner's office in Papeete put the islands on alert at 2:00 am local time (1200 GMT), saying the first waves were expected to reach the Gambier archipelago at 5:50 am (1550 GMT).

The other parts of the region, including Tahiti and Bora Bora, would be affected over the following two to three hours, they said.

The tsunami could be as high as two metres (more than six feet) in the Marquise islands and on Rurutu in the Australes, the authorities said, while warning people in the latter places to climb to at least 10 metres above sea level.

A huge arc of Pacific nations from New Zealand to Japan went on tsunami alert following the 8.8 magnitude Chilean earthquake, readying emergency plans instituted after the Indian Ocean disaster of 2004.

TSUNAMI ALERT IMPLEMENTED IN THE PHILIPPINES

2010-02-28T08:18:00.074+08:00

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Philvocs) issued a tsunami alert level 1 in the Philippines today. This could be the effect of the 8.8-magnitude earthquake that hit Chile today. The said earthquake could generate a destructive tsunami that could hit coastlines on the western Pacific.

The government has also warned those living in the eastern side of the Philippines including Camarines and Albay. “No evacuation order is in effect but communities along the east coast of the country are advised to wait for further information and to prepare for possible evacuation,” the government institute said in an advisory.

HYPNOSIS MAY HELP REDUCE PAIN AND SUFFERING IN METASTATIC BREAST CANCER PATIENTS

2010-02-27T17:44:11.453+08:00

Hypnosis can help alleviate the pain and suffering experienced by women being treated for breast cancer, according to a study by a University at Buffalo School of Social Work professor.The randomized trial measured pain and suffering, frequency of pain and degree of constant pain among 124 women with metastatic breast cancer, according to Lisa D. Butler, associate professor in UB's School of Social Work, a faculty member in the Buffalo Center for Social Research and first author of the study.Researchers recorded levels of pain at four-month intervals for a year. Women who were assigned to the treatment group received group psychotherapy, as well as instruction and practice in hypnosis to moderate their pain symptoms. They reported "significantly less increase in the intensity of pain and suffering over time," compared with a control group, who did not receive the group psychotherapy intervention.However, those using hypnosis reported no significant reduction in the frequency or constancy of pain episodes."The results of this study suggest that the experience of pain and suffering for patients with metastatic breast cancer can be successfully reduced with an intervention that includes hypnosis in a group therapy setting," according to Butler. "These results augment the growing literature supporting the use of hypnosis as an adjunctive treatment for medical patients experiencing pain."The study was published last year in an issue of the American Psychological Association journal Health Psychology.The researchers also found that, within the treatment group, those patients who could be hypnotized more easily -- a group the researchers said demonstrated "high hypnotizability" -- reported greater benefits from hypnosis. These patients used hypnosis more overall, including outside of the group sessions, and in some cases used it to address other symptoms related to their cancer."These results suggest that although hypnosis is not at present standard practice for treating a wide range of symptoms that trouble cancer patients, it is worth examining that potential," Butler says. "Together, these findings suggest that there may be a number of benefits to the use of hypnosis in cancer care including, but not necessarily limited to, its more traditional application for pain control."Butler joined the UB faculty in January 2009, after doing research at Stanford University's School of Medicine. She was hired at UB to strengthen the university's research focus on "extreme events" as part of the UB 2020 strategic planning initiative. She recently published a nationally recognized study on how some people living through an extremely traumatic event - including the 9/11 terrorist attacks -- have the ability to recover or even grow in personal and interpersonal functioning.Source: University at Buffalohttp://www.buffalo.edu/ src="http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=rnflci-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B0015T963C&fc1=000000&IS2=1<1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifr" style="align:left;padding-top:5px;width:131px;height:245px;padding-right:10px;"align="left" scrolling="no" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" frameborder="0"> src="http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=rnflci-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B00332FL6U&fc1=000000&IS2=1<1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifr" style="align:left;padding-top:5px;width:131px;height:245px;padding-right:10px;"align="left" scrolling="no" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" frameborder="0"> src="http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=rnflci-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B001JAH7OM&fc1=000000&IS2=1<1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifr" style="align:left;padding-top:5px;width:131px;height:245px;padding-right:10px;"align="left" scrolling="no" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" frameborder="0">[...]



NURSE, DEFIBRILLATOR CREDITED WITH SAVING STUDENT'S LIFE

2010-02-27T17:41:25.250+08:00

RUSSIAVILLE, Ind. -- Quick thinking by a Western High School nurse likely saved the life of a student who collapsed during gym class.
Drew Brantley, 17, a school soccer and baseball star, was playing basketball with classmates last week when he collapsed and appeared to have a seizure, 6News' Jennifer Carmack reported.
But nurse Brenda Strunk said she quickly realized it was much more severe.

When we got to him, we were trying to find pulse on him. We couldn't find a pulse," she said.
Strunk grabbed an Automated External Defibrillator located outside the school's gym and used it to bring the boy back from full cardiac arrest.
Brantley spent five days in Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis, where doctors said he had a heart condition that had gone undetected.

Now he is back home and thanking the people, and the machine, that helped save his life.
"I couldn't tell you where one of (the AEDs) is in the school, although I guess I will now," he said. "I'm just so happy that everybody knew how to use it, and everybody got there on time."
His parents said they hope to use this second chance to make sure every school is equipped with one of the life-saving machines.

"Only because of that device and the people at school is our son still alive" said Ron Brantley. "Make sure you get them. Even if you don't have to use them, it's a security blanket."
The machines cost about $1,700 a piece. The Western School Corporation has 11 throughout the district near playing fields, cafeterias and gymnasiums, and six more are on order.

HIV DRUG COMBO MAY INCREASE RISK FOR ARRHYTHMIA

2010-02-27T09:03:56.767+08:00

February 23, 2010 (Silver Spring, Maryland)— The FDA is warning physicians and patients about heart rhythm disturbances that may arise when two HIV medications--saquinavir (Invirase, Genentech) and ritonavir (Norvir, Abbott Laboratories)--are combined [1]. According to an alert issued by the agency on February 23, 2010, preliminary clinical-trial data suggest that, used in combination, saquinavir and ritonavir may cause prolongation of the QT and PR intervals, leading to an increased risk of torsades de pointes and heart block, respectively.

In a safety announcement posted online, the FDA advises physicians to avoid use of saquinavir in patients with preexisting conduction system disease, ischemic heart disease, cardiomyopathy, or underlying structural heart disease. In particular, the alert notes that the risk of rhythm side effects is greater in patients with a history of QT-interval prolongation or in patients who are already taking drugs known to prolong the QT interval. These include class IA drugs, such as quinidine, or class III antiarrhythmic drugs, such as amiodarone.

According to the FDA, ritonavir is often given at a low dose with saquinavir in order to boost levels of the latter in the body. Physicians treating patients who appear to develop rhythm disturbances from treatment are urged to report adverse events to the FDA's MedWatch program.

ACETAMINOPHEN - THE BEST TREATMENT OPTION FOR OSTEOARTHRITIS?

2010-02-26T23:04:14.614+08:00

Question: Acetaminophen - The Best Treatment Option for Osteoarthritis?

Answer: Experts are divided over the role of acetaminophen vs. NSAIDs as first-line agents to treat osteoarthritis. Both are popular and commonly prescribed for osteoarthritis patients. But when compared, which is more safe and effective? Which should be tried first?
In order to assess the safety and effectiveness of acetaminophen, previous studies have compared it to placebo and also to various NSAIDs (ibuprofen, diclofenac, arthrotec, celecoxib, naproxen). Researchers searched various databases and reviewed the published, randomized, controlled trials that compared acetaminophen to placebo or NSAIDs.

In their review, researchers assessed 15 randomized, controlled trials involving 5,986 study participants with hip osteoarthritis or knee osteoarthritis. The study participants took 4000 mg acetaminophen daily, placebo, or NSAIDS for about 6 weeks.

WHAT ARE DENTAL CAVITIES

2010-02-24T18:20:01.022+08:00

Tooth decay is one of the most common of all disorders, second only to the common cold. It usually occurs in children and young adults but can affect any person. It is a common cause of tooth loss in younger people.

Bacteria are normally present in the mouth. The bacteria convert all foods -- especially sugar and starch -- into acids. Bacteria, acid, food debris, and saliva combine in the mouth to form a sticky substance called plaque that adheres to the teeth. It is most prominent on the back molars, just above the gum line on all teeth, and at the edges of fillings. Plaque that is not removed from the teeth mineralizes into tartar. Plaque and tartar irritate the gums, resulting in gingivitis and ultimately periodontitis.

DOCTOR SHORTAGE FUELS NURSE PRACTITIONERS' PUSH FOR BIGGER ROLE

2010-02-24T18:18:48.269+08:00

BY ANDREW VILLEGASMCCLATCHY NEWSPAPERSTYRRELL COUNTY, N.C. -- There are no doctors in rural Tyrrell County, N.C. There's only Irene Cavall, a licensed nurse practitioner and the sole source of primary care for 4,000 residents spread out over 600 square miles.It's been that way since the county's lone doctor moved away two and a half years ago. Cavall sees as many as 40 patients a day at the Columbia Medical Center. It's about 40 miles west of the Outer Banks; an ambulance ride to the nearest hospital takes 25 minutes.There are limitations to her work. By state law, she works under the supervision of a doctor, albeit one many miles away, and calls him and specialists as needed. For 15 years, however, Cavall has been helping patients with a range of routine problems - from colds to management of diabetes - that don't always require a doctor. As she said, doctors "don't need to give someone a Tylenol."Nursing leaders say that large numbers of practitioners such as Cavall will be needed to fill gaps in primary care left by an increasing shortage of doctors, a problem that would intensify if Congress extends health insurance to millions more Americans. Advocates say nurse practitioners have the extra education and training needed to perform a variety of services, including physical exams, diagnosis and treatment of common ailments and prescribing drugs.However, the American Medical Association and doctors' groups at the state level have been urging state legislators and licensing authorities to move cautiously, arguing patient care could be compromised.This battle has been waged for years, even as nurse practitioners grew rapidly in number - there are 125,000 or more - and expanded their responsibilities. What's different now is the increasing conflict as pressure grows to use nurse practitioners and other so-called physician extenders, including physician assistants, certified nurse midwives and pharmacists. The Association of American Medical Colleges estimates there will be a shortfall of as many as 46,000 primary care doctors by 2025.The AMA sparked harsh criticism from nursing groups when it released a report in October bluntly questioning whether nurse practitioners "are adequately trained to provide appropriate care." To back up its claims, the report cited recent studies that questioned the prescription methods of some nurse practitioners, as well as a survey that found only 10 percent of the nurse practitioners questioned felt well-prepared to practice primary care.The nation's largest doctors' group concluded: "The time is ripe for legislators, health care policy analysts and nurses to thoroughly assess the quality of NP training in relation to the scope-of-practice expansions sought at the state level."The American Nurses Association and more than two dozen other nurses' organizations termed the AMA report misleading, saying in a letter in December it "contains numerous factual misrepresentations." They rebuked the AMA for its "attempt to change the perceptions of NP practice as anything other than fully qualified professionals working within a legally established scope of practice."Fueling the debate, the nonpartisan Brookings Institution's Engelberg Center for Health Care Reform issued a report in September by 10 experts that said one way to curb health care spending was to encourage states to permit "greater use of nurse practitioners, pharmacists, physician assistants and community health workers."Nurse practitioners started out decades ago under the close supervision of physicians, with tight restrictions on what they could do, but they've successfully pushed state licensing agencies and legislatures to grant them more autonomy and br[...]

WHAT IS ANAPHYLAXIS?

2010-02-24T13:19:36.823+08:00

Anaphylaxis is an acute multi-system severe type I hypersensitivity reaction. The term comes from the Greek words ανα ana (against) and φύλαξις phylaxis (protection).

Due in part to the variety of definitions, between 1% and 15% of the population of the United States can be considered "at risk" for having an anaphylactic reaction if they are exposed to one or more allergens. Of those people who actually experience anaphylaxis, up to 1% may die as a result. Anaphylaxis results in approximately 1,500 deaths per year in the U.S. In England, mortality rates for anaphylaxis have been reported as up to 0.05 per 100,000 population, or around 10-20 a year. Anaphylactic reactions requiring hospital treatment appear to be increasing, with authorities in England reporting a threefold increase between 1994 and 2004.

Based on the pathophysiology anaphylaxis can be divided into "true anaphylaxis" and "pseudo-anaphylaxis" or "anaphylactoid reaction." The symptoms, treatment, and risk of death are identical, but "true" anaphylaxis is always caused directly by degranulation of mast cells or basophils that is mediated by immunoglobulin E (IgE), and pseudo-anaphylaxis occurs due to all other causes.(image)

Tired After Night

2009-10-16T13:45:24.630+08:00

For the past two weeks, I have been so busy with my review for the national licensure examination for nurses. Have you tried the sleeping for more than 8 hours and yet you still feel so tired? That’s what I felt yesterday. I tried to leisurely walk in the malls and consumed a cup of coffee but I still don’t feel well. Then I surf the internet and played online games. Later that day, I decided to go home and I watched TV. It was spongebob! I really got a good TV reception because of satellite television providers. Nowadays, TV is not just a piece of machine that wil connect every people in the world, but also a leisure thing. Indeed TV removed some of my stress because I was able to watch my favorite tv shows. Then I called my friend to check what she was doing and coincidentally she was watching spongebob too via satellite tv providers. Most of people really love Spongebob.
In the afternoon, I went back to the mall to buy stuff for my kitchen. I bought eggs, veggies, beef, chicken, canned goods and my favorite Pringles. As I walked the grocery, I saw TVs that are really good. I tried to check it for myself and those TVs are really great because they are from a satellite tv provider. Then I went back to home and cooked my supper. And now you know, my weekdays are not routinely.

BAD-WORSE TO WORST

2009-10-11T21:37:39.649+08:00

It’s been a very wild weekend and I think that was the worst weekend I’ve ever had in my enter life. Why? Last week, I went to Professional Regulation Commission to file my application for Nursing licensure Examination. At first everything went smooth and clear, but I realized that I have to wait for several hours waiting for my name to be called. For the record, I stayed outside PRC while waiting and I was so warm and I have almost dehydrated myself. But I’m used to be so lucky so I’ve finished everything that day and I was able to file my application. So this was how everything went wild. That was Friday and everything went to plan but I was wrong! I was not able to accomplish a lot of task for that week. I was not able to shop for my store. I was not able to attend my review class. And the worst, my girlfriend got mad at me because I was late in our date. The next day, everything went worse when I got sick and unable to go out to attend my review class. That’s not all; my mom went to somewhere and got myself left all alone at home. I’ve got no one to cook for me, to prepare for my medications and the worst; I needed to shut my store for that day. It was a very boring Saturday and I wish I could do something to make it fun. Later that night, my mom arrived and she bought me half cut turkey. Not bad, mom bought the best grilled turkey in town. And Sunday came, I still got fever and as I’ve expected, I’m not getting very well. To cut it short, I was rushed to the hospital because my fever went to 40’C and even if I am a nurse, I did everything I could just to manage my fever but it was really persistent. Doctor came and told me,” son you got a systemic viral infection”.(image)
