    Traumatic brain injury (TBI) has remained a major cause of mortality, morbidity and leading cause of large-scale disabilities worldwide. TBI results in a large number of deaths and a cause of permanent disabilities with enormous losses to individuals, families, and communities [1]. World Health Organization (WHO), in 2004, has estimated that 25% of road traffic collisions requiring admission to a hospital suffered TBI [13]. Pathophysiology of TBI involves two main phases: these are primary injury following the trauma, and the secondary injury which is mediated by inflammatory response to trauma.
    However, no effective therapy or program is available for treatment of individuals with TBI; nonetheless, researchers had tried some therapeutic agents like levodopa/carbidopa and some neurotrophic factors in brain injury with persistent vegetative state with the aim of augmenting and slowing the progression from persistent vegetative state into some degree of consciousness. This still needs experimentation to confirm if these dopamine precursors and other neurotrophic factors have any role in TBI.
    Solomon O. Ugoya and Jian Tu from Australian School of Advanced Medicine, Macquarie University; and Technology Place, North Ryde, Sydney, Australia, respectively, have stated that Neural stem cells (NSCs) have recently been shown to contribute to the cellular re-modeling that occurs following TBI and attention has been drawn to the area of neural stem cell as possible therapy for TBI. The NSCs may play an important role in the treatment of TBI by replacing the damaged cells and eventual remyelination. They also pointed out that they can achieve the translation of basic knowledge of neural stem cells into therapeutic options in persons with TBI by enhancing and integrating these neural progenitor cells (NPCs) unto neurogenesis and directing these cells to the specified targets or through multi-potency where the transplanted cells can differentiate into glial cells, neurons, and endothelial cells, as the i confirm if these dopamine precursors and other neurotrophic factors have any role in TBI.
    Solomon O. Ugoya and Jian Tu from Australian School of Advanced Medicine, Macquarie University; and Technology Place, North Ryde, Sydney, Australia, respectively, have stated that Neural stem cells (NSCs) have recently been shown to contribute to the cellular re-modeling that occurs following TBI and attention has been drawn to the anjuries are not always selective but diffuse and we may need to induce these transplanted cells into appropriate phenotype.
    Neural stem cell therapy is a strategy that offers hope in the future for treatment of brain injury. In addition, we are now able to monitor autologous neural stem cells in vivo, cell migration and clearly demonstrate that neural stem cells could selectively target injured brain or spinal cord tissue and undergo neurogenesis.
    Recently, more attention has been drawn to the area of stem cell therapy, largely due to advanced knowledge about stem cells. The stem cells may play an important role in the treatment of TBI by replacing damaged cells, and helping functional recovery. The search for stem cell therapy for TBI is progressing.

    Can you think of a person who doesn’t want to look beautiful? It is impossible to name even one because there aren’t any.

    Vanity is within all of us and is not even gender specific. Your skin is something that covers you. Hence, it needs a little extra care in order to be healthy and glowing. The quest for that perfect skin and ambrosial beauty has triggered a race. People now search for shortcuts due to their busy lifestyle which would make them a looker from an average Joe. Cosmetic product manufacturers make fortunes out of this desperation of commoners to look beautiful. However, as they say, -There are no shortcuts to success-.

    People sometimes forget that these cosmetic products are laden with a large number of harmful chemical products. Here, one can think why don’t these cosmetic product manufacturers just cut them out? The answer is simple – these ingredients are cheap and widely available.

    On top of this, the nature of any chemical is to react and this is what they do. However, you can’t limit the reaction to work for only a specific purpose. The thing is that you will have to face the side effects if you go for cosmetic beauty products, even if it isn’t noticeable straight away. It will affect us on a daily basis without us even knowing about it.

    On the other hand, there are natural AND organic skin care products, which not only give your skin gentle care but can also allow you to avoid those side effects. Gone are those days when people used to think that organic AND natural products were only for the wealthy. The trends are rapidly changing and over the past ten years organic beauty products have become the number one choice.

    Pros and Cons of a Healthy Lifestyle
    by David Junno Psy.D.

    Word count: 512

    ————————————–
    Deciding to change your lifestyle.
    ————————————–
    Once we recognized we have a problem, the temptation is to want
    to make a change immediately. This, however, is rarely a good
    idea. The reason is that for our attempts to be successful we
    need to be absolutely sure we are willing to make the changes
    necessary.

    For example, if we discover that we have high cholesterol, we
    might want to immediately start dieting and doing more exercise.
    However, this can lead to problems. If we have not made a firm
    decision to make the necessary changes, then when we encounter
    obstacles, (which there will be many of), we will not have the
    commitment to overcome them. We then might define our inability
    to overcome the obstacles as a failure on our part. This is
    likely to lead to the belief that we cannot make the necessary
    changes, and we give up trying.

    To avoid this problem we need to focus on making a decision to
    change, rather than just reacting to bad news. One of the best
    ways to do this is to focus on the pros and cons of making
    changes.

    ———————————————-
    The Pros and Cons of Changing
    ———————————————-

    Take a piece of paper and write on the top what you want to
    change, for example: exercising more, or eating less saturated
    fat. Then make two columns on the paper and title one of them,
    pros and the other one, cons. Under pros, write down all the
    good reasons for making your change. For example under exercise
    you might say, get into better shape, or have more stamina.
    Under eating less saturated fat, you might write: lose weight.

    Under the Cons, write all the reasons for not making these
    changes. For example under exercise you might say, “I don’t
    feel I have the time”, or “I don’t like exercising”. Or for
    eating less saturated fat you might say, “I would have to
    give up my favorite foods”, or “It will require a lot of
    changes in my meal preparation”. According to Prochaska,
    Norcross and DiClemete in their book, “Changing for Good”,
    for a change to be successful the pros have to outweigh the
    cons.

    Are your pros more than your cons? If so, go ahead and start
    preparing to change. If your pros are not more than your
    cons, do not despair. This just means you need to focus your
    efforts on looking for more of the pros, and coming up with
    responses to the cons that will decrease their influence on
    you. Being aware of the cons of making a change is very
    important, as they tell you what you need to prepare for.
    Being prepared for the obstacles before you encounter them
    will improve your chances of success.

    Toners are used to remove any left over residue after cleansing the face. Additionally, they freshen the skin, close pores, tighten the skin, and restore ph balance. After cleansing your skin is stripped of it natural oils thus leaving the skin dull and dry. Usually it can take up to a half of an hour or so for your skin to restore its ph balance. When using the right toner for your skin type, the ph balance of your skin is restored instantly.

    Tonics are applied with a cotton ball or gauze and should be applied to face and neck, avoiding the eye area. If you skin is dull and sluggish, try briskly slapping the toner on thus increasing circulation in your skin.

    Toners are classified into three types:

    Fresheners and Bracers These types of toners are alcohol free and contain water and humectants, such as glycerin. Humectants help to keep the moisture in the upper layers of the epidermis by preventing it from evaporating. A popular example of this is rosewater toner. These types of toner are the most gentlest of the skin. Additionally they are suitable for dry, sensitive and normal skin types. Herbs for dry and normal skin types are: Dry skin-Elderflower, linden flowers and marigold. Normal skin: chamomile – especially good for antiseptic values, fennel, lemon balm, parsley and rosemary.

    Skin tonics Tonics are slightly stronger and contain a small quantity of alcohol (up to 20%), water and a humectants ingredient. Because of the alcohol content of Skin tonics, they are suitable for use on normal, combination, and oily skin. The alcohol acts as a drying agent in the tonic. Common herbs for oily skin are Chamomile-especially good for antiseptic values, fennel, lemon balm, parsley, rosemary, and peppermint and sage-especially good for antiseptic values.

    Astringents These are the strongest form of toner and contain a high proportion of alcohol (20-60%), antiseptic ingredients, water, and a humectant ingredient. Witch hazel is a common astringent. However, due to the large amount of alcohol in astringents they are usually applied to specific areas of the skin. Additionally overuse of astringents to remove oil from the skin actually increases oil production. Common herbs used of oily skin are Chamomile-especially good for antiseptic values, fennel, lemon balm, parsley, rosemary, and peppermint and sage-especially good for antiseptic values.

    Toner Recipe

    Herbs used to make common toners are as follows:

    Dry skin: Elderflower, linden flowers and marigold.

    Normal skin: chamomile – especially good for antiseptic values, fennel, lemon balm, parsley and rosemary.

    Oily Skin: Chamomile-especially good for antiseptic values, fennel, lemon balm, parsley, rosemary, and peppermint and sage-especially good for antiseptic values.

    Any of these herbs can be mixed with milk for soothing and nourishing dry skin as well as for sunburned or sensitive skin. Whole milk should be used for normal to dry skin, and skim milk for oily skin.

    Today’s beauty products are the outcome of thousands of years of experiments in cosmetics. The experiments started in Egyptian civilization still continue in various parts of the world. Moreover, today’s women should be considered the benefactor of years of mistakes committed by earlier civilizations. Women today have multitude of choices with respect to make up products. Modern day women enjoy a comprehensive range of beauty products sold at various beauty supply stores. Traditional beauty products which can be traced back to five thousand years were not as advanced as advanced are today’s cosmetic beauty products.

    Thanks to the obsession to look beautiful among women the beauty product business has become a billion dollar industry where thousands of companies compete to capture lion’s share in the market. Some of the leading beauty supply products such as Brushes & Combs, Clippers & Trimmers, Curling Irons, Extensions, Flat Irons, Hair Care products, Hair Color, Hair Dryers, Hair Loss and Hair Removal products, Hair Setters, Hair Styling equipments, Hairpieces, Makeup Tools, Nail Care, Skin Care, Wigs, etc. are being produced in large quantities and sold through beauty product stores globally.

    Whereas Europe and the USA with Japan are the leading manufacturing nations of beauty products, China is matching the pace with renewed interest to cash in the market. Despite several protests from animal rights activists claiming that numerous beauty creams are made using the bones and skins of some near to extinct animals, the production is continue unabatedly. People are following mad rush to become fair by using fairness creams. Interestingly enough most of the global brands in beauty products are from Western Europe and the USA followed by Japan which are inhabited by whites. So it is white people selling fairness creams to people who are not white to become white.

    Interesting fact about beauty product market is that it is dominated by few selected companies. For example Maybelline has a world market share of 7.4%, Avon controls world market share of 5.4%, L’Oral Paris owns 5.3% of world market. Similarly, Lancme has world market share of 4% and Clinique has world market share of 3.6%. It is the increased level of obsession for beauty that helps cosmetic production companies trapping men and women. Beauty contests and get together (kitty parties) parties are other examples wherein women flaunt (or hide ugliness) their beauty with the help of beauty products.

    If it was possible for a digital artist to have heaven on earth, it would revolve around Cintiq 24 HD. Wacom’s new tablet Cintiq 24 HD priced at $2500 proves its worth with the state-of-the-art technology and impressive design used in it. It is the best drawing tool that any designer or artist can get. People who work in Photoshop, Manga Studio , Sketch Book Pro or painter with older Wacom models, this means a better finesse with a gentler touch at 24.1 in wide screen (1920×1200 pixels).

    There’s a reason why these tablets are so much in demand- it is the easiest and best way to do a lot of drawing in a very less time with more fluency and efficiency. Wacom’s pressure sensitive tablet technology is overlaid by Cintiq on the tablet monitor that removes the cognitive dissonance of working on a tablet while looking at the screen. The Cintiq 24 HD has 2048 levels of pressure sensitivity. It uses two button, wireless, battery-free pen with a rubber grip and a pressure sensitive eraser on the rear end. One of the most useful buttons is the one that calls the on-screen keyboard. A perfect combination of on screen keyboard, side function buttons, and the touch wheel makes it easier to forget physical key board.

    Before making a purchase, make sure you have enough room to accommodate this classic yet huge drawing tablet. The flat footprint is 80 x 60cm and depth is 37cm when the screen is fully raised. Also unlike other 18 inch and 21 inch tablets, Cintiq 24 HD does not have a rotating pivot. However, it can be raised to the drawing board angle at any time. Cintiq 24 HD has a glass screen with anti-glare coating which gives a slight yet pleasant resistance to the pen. Calibration, however, can be a small issue like it has been in other Cintiq tablets. The user has to calibrate the cursor to match up with their line of sight as the cursor is a few millimeters below where the pen nib hits the glass. But after a couple of tries, the calibration gets excellent.

    The Cintiq 24 HD is worth the money you spend, the space it takes because of the excellent quality of work you get. If you are a digital artist, it is a necessity to enjoy the flawless digital drawing experience.
