Posted by omeditors | Posted in Studying Cancer | Posted on 12-01-2017

Oncologist Mikhail Blagosklonny has spent many years of his life studying cancer and aging. A graduate of St. Petersburg’s the First Pavlov State Medical University, he earned both an M.D. in internal medicine as well as a PhD in cardiology and experimental medicine. A well-respected researcher and scientist on Nature.com, Blagosklonny is a professor at New York’s the Roswell Park Cancer Institute where he teaches oncology. Prior to that he was a New York Medical College, Valhalla assistant professor where he taught medicine from 2002 until 2009.

As a researcher Blagosklonny focuses on the mechanisms underlying aging and effective anti-aging drugs as well as cancer and targeted therapies designed to prevent healthy cells from becoming damaged due to cancer treatment. Mikhail Blagosklonny has also come up with a theory that TOR signaling can play a role in working with issues related to aging and cancer. Blagosklonny has proposed using the popular cancer drug rapamycin to aid in extending life for the elderly. In fact he’s among the most passionate advocates of the use of rapamycin in longevity research.

Blagosklonny has published extensively. He’s had more than 270 papers published in peer-reviewed journals. Add his 25,000 citations and it gives him a h-index of 83. Blagosklonny is also editor-in-chief of Oncotarget, Aging and Cell Cycle on tandfonline.com. He’s also Cancer Biology & Therapy’s associate editor as well as a Cell Death & Differentiation editorial board member. Blagosklonny is also known as one of the hyperfunction theory’s major proponents. Hyperfunction theory holds that life is governed by a developmental genetic program and that the aging related diseases are a result of the running on inertia of growth signaling pathways.

According to Blagosklonny aging is not caused by oxidative damage. Instead it’s collateral damage caused by mTOR-driven inflammatory processes like dementia, diabetes, obesity, osteoporosis, hypertension, atherosclerosis and cancer that underlying aging processes. According to the theory people’s lifespan can be lengthened by calming the mTOR pathway as people age. The theory on researchgate.net holds that this can be done using drug compounds like rapamycin or metformin, using dietary protein restrictions, intermittent fasting and regular exercise.

Dr. Blagosklonny is also doing very meaningful work at the Roswell Park Cancer Institute at http://www.impactjournals.com/oncotarget/index.php?journal=oncotarget&page=article&op=view&path%5B%5D=3740. There he is part of the team working to understand, prevent and find ways to cure cancer. The center was founded in 1898. It is a member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network and partners with national and international collaborative programs.

A lot of people in all walks of life are afraid of a negative review. Unfortunately, it is a fact of life. Every business that is open long enough is going to get negative reviews. This is something that can’t be avoided. Seeing how people are different, no one is going to be able to satisfy everyone he encounters. Also, the anonymity that comes with the internet enables people to post a lot of negative reviews. Therefore, negative reviews don’t have to be a devastating affair. However, many people take it as such.

People react to negative feedback in different ways. One common way that people react to negative feedback is by ignoring it. According to onlinereputationreviews.com, this is not always a good idea. While some forms of negative comments are left by users that have nothing better to do than to stir up trouble, there are reviews that are worth looking at because they go into detail and express a legitimate concern. Therefore, instead of ignoring the negative comment, the person could take this opportunity to reach out to customers so that he could learn what he could do to improve the business relationship. This could not only strengthen the relationship of a business with its customers but also improve the online reputation of the company.

When people go into business, one of the most important concerns should be the customers. After all, it is the customer that decides whether a business succeeds or fails. If the customer does not deem the company worthy, then the company is going to struggle and ultimately close down. Therefore, it is important to do more than just provide good products and services. Business owners must also get involved in activities that are positive. After all, customers do have a desire to be a part of something that is positive.

Technology and fashion are two industries that are constantly changing and growing. Sometimes the two overlap. A current trend is to fit the retro clothes or current clothes with the present tech. Anouk Wipprecht is a Dutch fashion designer known for her cutting edge styles and she has made such innovative dresses as the drinking making dress and the self painting dress.

 

Technology and fashion can fuse together in numerous ways to help us. One way is to protect us. Protective gear is often ignored. Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin recently created an airbag for cyclists, where a bag pops out to protect the neck. Frontline Gloves are a fashion tech created by Ashwin Rajan and Kevin Cannon to help firefighters know information during an emergency through just a simple hand movement.

 

Some designers are using technology to create fashion. For example, recycling is being used by SegraSegra to take old bike inner tubes and create jackets and t-shirts. Soledad Martin is creating shoes that charge a phone as you walk/run. Fashion and technology come together to help create a totally new product. They grow from one another. Fashion and technology can have a complimentary relationship in some cases.

 

Chris Burch, founder and CEO of Burch Creative Capital, runs a firm that manages venture investments and brand developments. He officially reached billionaire status in 2012. Burch has always had a love for fashion, even in college. He and his brother started a small company in college, which grew to a 140 million dollar company. He eventually sold it and started Burch Creative Capital to foster new brands and manage his own investments. Since he started Burch Capital, he has also launched other brands and fashion lines as well. He also invests in real estate and other ventures as needed. Burch has deep roots and interests in the fashion community.

Posted by omeditors | Posted in Hair Health Improvement | Posted on 16-12-2016

Today’s modern woman seems to walk around with a hair dryer attached to her hand. In other words, that’s one hair appliance that most of us use daily or at least once a week. Your blow-dryer can accomplish many feats, but it can also add heat damage to your tresses when over-used.

Hair care experts advise switching to blow-dryers that offer ion technology. This type of appliance breaks down the water molecule, and that means a faster drying time and less heat damage.

In addition, you should study your choice of shampoos and conditioners, because the chemicals present in most of them can cause your hair to stand up on its own. Nasty sulfates are the dirty secret present in store bought hair care products. These agents strip the hair of its natural oils and further weaken hair strands. In addition, these big lather formulas rob the hair of its natural shine.

WEN By Chaz offers women a healthy alternative, the no lather shampoo. His line of special, botanically-based cleansing conditioners perform several missions. They cleanse effectively, better than a shampoo, and they condition, deep condition and act as a leave-in conditioning treatment.

Famous stylist to the stars, Chaz Dean, launched his brand in 1993, removing sulfates from the formula and changing the way women care for their hair. The beauty in WEN is in its design; his line is ideal for every hair type found on the planet. Curly, pin-straight, damaged, dry, frizzy or unruly, WEN heals, repairs and protects.

WEN By Chaz features a wonderful variety of styling cremes for those blow-drying days. His unique QVC advertised formulas provide great protection against the extreme heat from hair drying and flat ironing. You get moisture, shine and strength using his anti-frizz cremes.

Why An Assisted Living Facility is Better Than Home Care

Posted by omeditors | Posted in Better Than Home Care | Posted on 12-12-2016

As more and more baby boomers continue to retire in staggering numbers, more and more people are facing the question on how to handle the health needs of their loved ones. Oftentimes, many of them face an even more important request from their love ones, which is to avoid the possibility of putting them in a home. However, the problem with this is that as their love ones need more and more daily care, it can put a significant amount of pressure on caregivers which can strain the relationship within the family. This is why it’s important to consider how assisted living can be more beneficial than residing at home as far as wellness and quality of life goes.

1) Abundance Of Opportunities For Socializing

The whole concept of living in an home can prove to be isolating and as such, present a certain degree of difficulty for the individual when it comes to maintaining their social relationships. With assisted living, residents are able to easily socialize with their peers in common areas and through structured activities such as dancing, cultural events and planned field trips.

2) Opportunity to Maintain Fitness

Many assisted living facilities provide the latest gym equipment and various group exercise classes such as Zumba and Tai Chi. In addition to this, the personal trainers which supervise these group exercises have been trained to understand the needs of older adults.

3) Customized, Supervised Nutrition

One of the most beneficial things residents of an assisted living facility will be able to receive is a supervised nutrition plan. The whole concept of monitoring whether or not a loved one is receiving an adequate amount of nutrients can prove to be difficult to say the least. When it comes to assisted living, residents are always served 3 meals per day, which have each been tailored to suit their specific health needs.

The Manse On Marsh

The Manse on Marsh is an assisted living facility which offers an ideal solution for individuals with various budgets. This is due to the fact that they offer some of the most competitive rates within the industry as well as the opportunity to tailor their amenities and services to suit the needs of various budgets. For example, residents within the facility are offered a wide variety of lifestyle choices and options such as adjacent homes, single bedrooms or cottages. They also give residents the opportunity to add services and care as needed.

The facility itself is also an ideal solution for individuals who are concerned about the concept of being able to stay active outside of the facility as far as local attractions goes. Residents who reside in this facility need not travel long distances to visit restaurants, bookstores, retail outlets, churches or coffee house because since The Manse on Marsh is located within the heart of San Luis Obispo, all of these attractions are located within walking distance.

Clay Siegall: A Pioneer in Cancer Research

Posted by omeditors | Posted in Siegall | Posted on 08-12-2016

It is not every job you work at where you can truly say you make a difference, but Clay Siegall has one of those jobs. Some days, he will literally see someone in his hometown of Seattle and realize that he actually has saved their life. What kind of job does he have?

Clay B. Seigall actually has a Ph.D and he founded Seattle Genetics in 1998. This firm has become one of the leading cancer research firms in the Pacific Northwest. Siegall had some early experiences that spurred him on to this field. He has the passion that only a man who lost his father to a horrendous form of brain cancer can have.

Dr. Siegall’s work has also spurred on Seattle Genetics. In their tireless research on antibody-drug conjugates, there have been many different milestones. One of these would include their tireless work to develop ADCETRIS┬« (brentuximab vedotin). This was actually their first drug to get FDA approval, which can be an extremely lengthy process.

After their tireless work was done, Siegall was also fortunate enough to see a large increase in growth in his company as well. When their first drug was ready for the market in 2011, his company also experienced exponential growth. Siegall is now the CEO of a firm that has over 800 employees, up from just a hundred before their first drug was approved.

Siegall could indeed credit a lot of different people for his success, but first and foremost he would probably have his late father to thank. He saw how brave he was in the face of his brain cancer, and Dr. Siegall starts his mornings early with the same mission: to make his father proud and help other people keep their fathers around longer as well.

Besides getting FDA approval for a drug, Siegall’s tireless work also includes raising funds for his company. He works day and night to secure it, and he has developed his company into a small million-dollar enterprise into one with an endowment of several billion dollars annually. If only more individuals such as Dr. Siegall existed in the world!
