One of the popular methods of vision improvement in America is the use of contacts for vision correction of various eye conditions such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. While the use of contact lenses is popular with people due to the fact that it is convenient, and takes the hassle out of wearing glasses, it does not correct the underlying causes of your vision conditions.

Type 2 Diabetes Treatment – Maintain Normal Blood Sugar Level

Type 2 diabetes is a commonly found chronic disease caused due to improper production or utilization of insulin. Chances for getting type 2 diabetes vary from person to person. Heredity, hypertension and old age are main risk factors of type 2 diabetes. It may cause several negative impacts on life like increased appetite, increased thirst, blurred vision, fatigue and erectile dysfunction. After evaluating symptoms, you can easily verify this disorder by conducting blood tests. Fasting blood glucose level, oral glucose tolerance level and hemoglobin A1c test are some of the best recommended blood tests for verifying type 2 diabetes. Even though diabetes is not fully curable, we can maintain the normal level of blood sugar level in body by following a healthy lifestyle with proper medications. Now let’s see in detail some of the best diabetes treatment for type 2.

Intake of oral medicines is a commonly prescribed diabetes treatment for type 2 helping in maintaining a balanced blood sugar level. At present, there are many oral medicines available at medical stores. Before using oral medicines, it is advised to seek guidance from a physician for knowing your correct dosage level. Sulphonylureas is one among the best used oral diabetic medicines promoting insulin production in pancreas. Release of insulin from beta cells lowers the amount of blood sugar level and reduces the risk of hyperglycemic condition.

You can also intake sulphonylureas with metmorphin for treating type 2 diabetes. Intake of metmorphin reduce the amount of sugar absorbed by intestinal walls, make body cells more sensitive to insulin action and limits the release the glucose from liver to blood stream. It is a perfect solution for those who are suffering from type 2 diabetes due to over weight problems. Acarbose, exenatide, glitazones and gliptins are other common oral medicines suggested` for the treatment of type 2 diabetes.

Following a healthy diabetic diet is a best recommended type 2 diabetes treatment. Diabetic diet is a blend of nutritive, low caloric value and low cholesterol level food items. Green leafy vegetables, fresh fruits, nuts, brown rice, millet, pealed barley and quinoa are main food items included in diabetic diet. While following a diabetic diet, it is advised to intake frequent light meals instead of heavy meals. Potatoes, ghee products, spices and oily fried food items should be avoided. It is also advised to cease the intake of alcohol and processed food items for maintaining a balanced blood sugar level.

Proper exercise is another suggested diabetes treatment for lowering blood sugar level. Doing regular exercises helps in proper functioning of metabolic activities and lowers heightening of blood sugar level. Performing aerobic exercises like walking, jogging, bicycling and swimming helps in promoting over all well being of the person. It reduces over weight, prevents heart diseases, reduces hypertension problems and improves muscle sensitivity towards insulin. Practicing of yoga exercises is another effective type 2 diabetes treatment used for stimulating the functioning of pancreas. Bhramari, surya namaskara, salabha asana and pavanamukta asana are some among the best recommended yogic exercises for the treatment of type 2 diabetes.

Eye Braces Instead of Laser Eye Surgery?

Are you nearsighted, farsighted? Before your give up your glasses for contact lenses or laser eye surgery, check out the promises of eye braces. They promise to correct your vision without surgery – while you sleep.

A long time ago, back in the 1960’s, two California doctors when getting feedback from their patients who wore contact lenses, kept hearing the same type of story over and over again. Many times their patients would leave their home, drive to work and then halfway through the day notice that they were not wearing their contact lenses. And they were seeing perfectly well. It appeared that the constant wearing of the contact caused a gradual reshaping of their cornea, improving their ability to see. This chance discovery eventually led to experimentations and studies on shaping the eyes using contact lenses.

Corrective eye braces or CRT (Corneal Refractive Therapy) lenses as they are formally known, are hard contact lenses that act much like a retainer or braces do on your teeth. You put them on at night just before you go to bed. During the night, while you sleep, they reshape the cornea of your eye. When you wake up in the morning, your blurred vision is gone. You can see the pictures on your wall, the buttons on your clothes, and the alarm clock on your dresser. You have 20/20 vision.

Unlike laser eye surgery, the changes are not permanent. The changes to the cornea will last only a day on some people. On others, it has lasted up to a week.

So who are the most likely candidates for these eye braces?

Young teenagers for one. Many good eye surgeons will not operate on a teenager or a person under 18 or 21 because the body, including the eyes. may still be growing and changing. At those ages, they doctor may legitimately determine that the risk is not worth it and rule out corrective eye surgery altogether. In this case, eye braces, may be a good alternative.

The eyes are one of our most important senses and many people are leery of making any type of permanent change to them. Add to that the growing number of malpractice lawsuits involving refractive surgery, and some people, especially those already wary of surgical operations, begin to look for alternative ways of improving their vision. For them, they are a good compromise between permanent contact lenses and laser eye surgery.

Those looking for a bargain will also like eye braces. The cost of CRT lenses is much less than the cost of laser eye surgery. The news is not all good, however. The braces have to be hard, in order to reshape the cornea. This can make them uncomfortable to wear. And although most people will get used to them, some find they can’t adjust.

Also, although relatively infrequent, the wearing of contact lenses, does increase the risk of microbial infections of the eye.

And thirdly, there have been no long term studies of the effect of wearing them on a nightly basis for an extended period of time.

So if you want CRT lenses how do you get them? You can’t just go into an eye doctor’s office and order them. A CRT lens has to be prescribed by a doctor who has been certified in CRT lenses.

Premature Ejaculation Solving The Problem Part 2

Having explored two options that have been used widely but with little success to combat the problem of premature ejaculation, let us now look at the one option that is recognized by experts to be the best approach.

But before we do so there is a very important point that needs to be made. Many of the online resources mentioned previously refer to “curing” premature ejaculation. Since the definition of cure is: “recovery from disease”, it is most important to understand that premature ejaculation is not a disease. It is a learning problem. You can no more call it a disease than you could call the inability to do advanced mathematics a disease.

The only true and permanent answer to premature ejaculation lies in education. You are not born with the ability to control ejaculation. Every man has to learn how to. In the same way he learned how to control his bladder and bowel functions. He has to learn to develop voluntary control over a function that is controlled at birth by a reflex (an automatic nervous response). Just as he learned to control urination and defecation by learning to develop voluntary control over those reflexes.

There are techniques and exercises that will help you learn to recognize exactly what is going on in your body as you go through the sexual response cycle. Once you really understand how your body is responding to various forms of stimulation you are in a position to learn how to develop control. The drugs and tricks mentioned in the last article will not help you learn to control ejaculation any more than they could help you learn to speak another language.

The American Academy of Family Practice website states: “Behavioral methods are helpful for more than 95% of men who have premature ejaculation.”

That’s right 95% of men can develop control of ejaculation without investing a fortune. Many inexpensive books are available that can lead you through a step-by-step program for learning ejaculatory control. Unfortunately a lot of them are so padded with statistics, demographics, historical data, anatomy, physiology and psychology that men often give up reading before they get through them.

Selecting the proper book from the many that are available can be tricky. Look for one that has been around a long time which means it has been successful. Look for an author who posts their credentials right up front and one who has had sufficient years of experience to have encountered all of the problems that can arise in the process of solving the problem. Be selective and be careful.

In an ideal world the process of learning how to control premature ejaculation would be taught to every young man in his high school health class. Since it is unlikely that will occur in the near future, I will continue to try to provide education and to counteract the abusive elements exploiting those who wish to deal with the problem.

New Wave of Nail Techs – Nail Esthetician

More and more nail techs are figuring out that fifty percent of twenty dollars now-a-days is not footing the bill in this hard economic time that were living in today. That basic manicure is just too basic as more and more clients are going natural and staying away from the harsh chemicals such as acrylic and/or gel nails. Walking into your nail salon and/or spa you are now more likely to find that your nail tech are now doing waxing, and a facial while soaking your hands/foot for a manicure and pedicure. Nail Techs are returning to class to learn waxing techniques and skin care.

Pumping out more than an hundred bucks within a hour: for a full brazil bikini wax, designed eyebrow shaping, eyelash tinting, and a mani and pedi to boot! NailEsthetician books are full and they are spending more time with a client which is likely to result in a returned client. You can now find help wanted ads asking that Nail Techs must also do waxing or that Aestheticians know how to do mani’s and pedi’s. Aniko Salon in Chicago have jumped on board by hiring Aeshetician’s that is also a licensed Nail Tech. More and more Salons/spas are now providing the full package from only one tech and it is the ultimate experience for clients to see only one tech which in-turn allows for a bigger tip for the ‘one’ tech.

As we move to a more “go green” environment and clients become more and more aware that harsh chemicals are no longer needed to make your nails look great; prices began to stand still for the basic manicures. Nail Techs have to become creative and upgrade services like: spa packages with signatures scrubs, paraffin treatments, mani or pedi flex or ask the client if they would like to add a mani to their “just” pedi service or a pedi to their “just” mani service for pennies on the dollar.

Aestheticians are: skin care specialist; not dermatologist or nail techs; they must return to school to get their Nail Tech License and vice versa for Nail Techs if they wish to do skin care. You do not want a Nail Tech cutting your hair if they are only licensed to do nails. Here in Illinois a License Cosmetologist can do skin/nails and/or hair provided that she continues her education or experience beyond school.

Skin care is where the beauty industry is seriously headed as more and more baby boomers and women in general pay more attention to their skin. More and more Aestheticians are working close with dermatologist to also increase their income and Medical Manicurist are popping up slowly but surely. Dermologica: a skin care line, is found in many beauty schools and is popular in spas/salons as student continue their education beyond schooling. There are many more skincare lines that are excellent and Nail Techs and/or Aestheticians should return to school for licensing to learn the minors such as face mapping and/or the many conditions of the nail.

Waxing is a huge income for salons/spas as more and more men began to wax their face as oppose to shaving; which happens to last much longer than shaving; OUCH! So as more and more Nailaesthetician pop up and our clients become more aware of environmentally eco-friendly products; moving away from harsh smelly chemicals; nails techs should not sway away from their love of providing mani’s and pedi’s just jump on board and become a nailesthetician to boost your income.

Shingles Treatment – Oxygen Therapy

Shingles is an infection caused by the varicella zoster virus, a member of the herpes family and the same virus that causes chickenpox. The characteristic symptom is a rash of painful blisters. Shingles can appear anywhere on the body. If it occurs on the forehead near the eyes or on the tip of the nose, the eyes are likely to become involved, and damage to the cornea can occur. Taking the proper supplements when blisters first appear can make the blisters dry up quickly, and the discomfort may be alleviated.

Another important and powerful shingles treatment that was forgotten is the self- administration of oxygen therapy as offered by the “The Cure Within One Minute”. The cure within one minute was research by a person named Madison Cavanaugh. He discovered that oxygen therapy was one of the best alternative therapy that could treat and cure cold shingles including all forms of cancer, STD’s and eventually all diseases. Madison discovered the potency of this therapy.

People right now are well informed about the dynamic effects of oxygen therapy, especially the widely known hyperbaric oxygen therapy. They are informed that and oxygen-rich body cannot be inhabited by diseases, then they believe that the solution to destroy the disease seems simple enough. Just give the body and abundant supply of oxygen, right? The answer is, plain wrong! It’s not as simple as that. Here’s the reason behind it: “Oxygen Cannot Treat and Cure Shingles Unless It’s Delivered to the Cells and Tissues of the Body”. Many people are not able to get enough amounts of oxygen in the cells and tissues of their bodies due mainly to poor air quality, poor breathing habits and oxygen-depriving activities. One important thing to remember is that the body is not always able to deliver oxygen to the cells and tissues.

For oxygen to destroy the disease, it must be delivered not just to the lungs — and not just to the bloodstream – the most important is, it must be supplied to the cells and tissues. That’s the reason why other oxygen therapies, such as oxygenated water, oxygen-rich foods or supplements and treatments that release oxygen into the bloodstream — are not always potent and efficient in treating all diseases. While they may supply to the body with oxygen, they don’t always have an effective mechanism for breaking the oxygen free from the hemoglobin molecule, which means the oxygen is not supplied to the cells and tissues of our bodies. Such oxygen-based therapies, therefore, are not always effective in shingles treatment.

The shingles treatment – oxygen therapy you’re about to know, that can heal not only shingles but eventually all diseases, which hundreds if not by the thousands of people all over the world are calling “the world’s greatest healing miracle of all time,” is the ONLY ONE that uses a Natural Oxygenating substance which activates and stimulates the movement of oxygen atoms from the bloodstream to the cells to a radical degree than is usually reached by other ways.

Hypothyroid Diet Basic Principles

The basic principle of a hypothyroid diet is based on hypothyroidism, which is a condition that reduces the metabolism rate of our body and leads to weight gain. This condition can be checked by using an ideal and specific hypothyroid diet. What does this diet entail and how can one increase their body metabolism rate and reduce the effect of gaining weight? This is one of the many questions that will be answered in this context. To achieve a perfect hypothyroid diet, one needs to reduce the consumption of carbohydrates. Carbohydrates have been known to cause diabetes, one of the main causes of a low metabolism rate in our bodies. Some of the foods that you need to avoid are yams, pastas, sweet potatoes and regular potatoes. It is recommended you eat foods rich in fiber such as vegetables, whole cereals and whole grain bread. Other foods that you need to avoid are white bread, cakes, refined flour and corn.

Selenium and a Hypothyroid Diet

One of the most important nutrients that you have to include in your hypothyroid diet is selenium. This nutrient can be naturally found in foods like tuna, sunflower seeds, salmon, eggs and Brazil nuts. There are other essential nutrients that you may also include in your diet like Vitamin E, Niacin and Zinc. Foods that you need to avoid excess consumption in your diet include cabbage, kale, peaches, cauliflower, turnips, peanuts and broccoli. This class of food is associated with interfering with the metabolism rate of the body and it is wise to avoid eating them in excess. To achieve a perfect diet, and like most healthy diet plans, you need to drink a lot of water. This is because a thyroid patient is faced with a problem of retaining water. The body loses a lot of water and needs to replace it as soon as possible. Avoid using a lot of salt as this will make the situation worse. It’s best to use sea salt as a replacement.

Hypothyroid Diet and the Importance of Water

It is recommended that you drink a minimum of ten glasses of water per day as part of the hypothyroid diet. This will reduce the dehydration effect caused by thyroid. You are also supposed to prevent other foods that will increase the dehydration of the body such as salted crackers, salted nuts or any foods that has been preserved in salt.

Another important part of your hypothyroid diet is exercise. The body’s metabolism rate is low and you need to look for better ways of activating it. Be as consistent with exercise, but initially it is recommended to take on light and low routine workouts. Start with about a twenty-minute daily routine during the early stages, and then increase the training period over time as you become accustomed to it. No need to run out and sign up for gym sessions right away, home exercise sessions are ideal to get you body used to exercising regularly.

One of the most basic tips of attaining good weight loss is to prevent the effect of always chasing your weight. What this means is the fact that some people are always on the scale to check how much they have lost when on the hypothyroid diet. This could be especially frustrating in some instances. The issue of losing weight is a gradual process and needs patience in whatever you decide to do. Start regular exercises and stick to the hypothyroid diet and you will definitely see the difference over time. It is advisable to track your weight on a weekly and not on a daily basis. This will show you the extent of your progress and with time you shall note that you are losing more and more weight. Avoid eating the food items that have been discussed in this article and you shall notice the difference while having confidence in your hypothyroid diet.

How to Treat Bed Bug Rash

Unfortunately, identifying a bed bug’s rash is not as easy of a task as one might believe. This is because the bed bug bites look exactly like any other bug bites: small, round, and red with a hint of swelling. Sound familiar? Mosquitoes, fleas, ants and lice all ironically bite in a similar fashion, creating nearly the same effect on the human skin – including rashes. This causes many victims to treat a bed bugs rash in the wrong manner.

Bed Bugs Rash: Symptoms to Look For

Despite the similar symptoms of bed bug bites and other bug bites, there are still a few ways to uniquely identify a bed bug rash:

  • Pattern of multiple bumps. Bed bugs rash develops from bed bugs that bite in a clustered pattern or in a single-file row. Bed bugs also like feeding on the same area more than once, so consistent biting in a select area is definitely a unique trait of bed bug bites.
  • Consistent biting. Not only do bed bugs bite in the same area multiple times, they do it over and over in a given amount of time. If you experience a bug bite anywhere on your body consistently over a few days or weeks, it’s worth investigating whether or not it’s bed bugs.
  • Delayed swelling. A bed bug’s rash only develops once the initial bite starts swelling after a few days. There is no conclusive reason yet on why the delay occurs, but it nevertheless does and bed bug bite victims should prepare for possible infections and inflammations.
  • Biting at night. While many bugs have a penchant for biting during the nights (e.g., mosquitoes), bed bugs are also privy to attacking during sleeping hours. If you regularly find yourself with new bites upon waking up in the morning, it is likely they’re from bed bugs.

Treatment for Bed Bugs Rash

Once you’ve determined that the rash is indeed a bed bug’s rash, it’s time for treatment. There are several ways to approach this, with the easiest being simply to wait it out. Most bed bug rashes last only a few days before slowly fading away. However, those who are allergic may need to apply reinforcements in the form of steroid creams and oral antihistamines.

If these do not work, try some do-it-yourself remedies. Apply warm water to the bites for temporary relief of the itching. Calamine lotion, which is also used for relieving poison ivy, helps protect the skin as the bed bugs rash heals. Soak the skin in a powdered oatmeal bath to calm the inflammation. However you decide to remedy a bed bugs rash, be sure to avoid causing further irritation and inflammation, as these will only prolong the existence of the rash.

Metamucil Weight Loss: How Does It Work?

What is Metamucil?

Metamucil is a fiber supplement and is made up primarily of psyllium seed husks. People often use it to relieve constipation. The truth, however, is that Metamucil is not a laxative in the sense that it does not stimulate the colon and build pressure upon the bowels to pass out the waste.

Since the husk is not water-soluble and cannot be digested, it also reduces the amount of food that can be digested and absorbed by the body. It, therefore, pushes itself out of the system. It is in this sense that Metamucil relieves the constipation.

Can you lose weight with Metamucil?

Yes, Metamucil can help you lose weight to some extent. Since psyllium seed husk is indigestible, it creates a feeling of fullness. You tend to eat a little less, ingest lesser amount of calories and eventually lose weight.

But the amount of weight you lose is not really great. Moreover, you will not be able to maintain the weight loss unless you take fibrous fruits, vegetables and whole grains and also avoid products that increase the calories and lead to weight gain.

Other benefits of Metamucil

The fibrous content of Metamucil cleanses the blood vessels and the intestine as it makes its way downwards. It, therefore, reduces the level of cholesterol.

According to the research conducted by the Food and Drugs Administration, Metamucil may help in lowering the risk of heart attack.

Harmful effects of Metamucil

It has been reported that a continued consumption of Metamucil may lead to vitamin deficiency. Psylliums seed is only husk and not a food. Some consumers even complain of flatulence, stomach cramps and gas.

Excessive ingestion of Metamucil without sufficient water may even dry up the colon. You may also experience a little difficulty in breathing as you swallow it.

Metamucil is also available in capsule form. But again you should take plenty of water as it may swell your face as well as the throat resulting in choking it.

Since psyllium seed is just a dry husk, you must drink plenty of water to prevent it from staying put in the colon and get it moving along. Those who do not drink sufficient amount of water with Metamucil tend to get constipated instead of being relieved of it.

What is the best way to lose weight?

Physical exercises are good provided you take them regularly, but that is easier said than done. After a few days people tend to find excuses to skip them.

Similarly it is not easy to stick to strict bland diet regimes, keep counting calories and refrain from the tasty, crisp and fried foods. There are always reasons to take it “just for now”.

It would be inhuman to deny yourself a tasty food now and them. The good news is that you can enjoy your favorite foods, of course, within limits and also lose weight.

Try Proactol Plus weight loss pills.

Proactol Plus weight loss pills are made up of a natural cactus plant called prickly pear. Its fibrous ingredients bind with a whopping 28% of the fat you eat, stop it being absorbed by your body and pass it out. So you can continue to eat the food you eat daily. They also create a feeling of fullness and reduce craving for food.

They can help you to burn off about 250 calories daily without taking any physical exercise.

New Zealand 141114: A Powerful Date for Maori, Or Just More Whitewash?

After another very lengthy (and costly) Tribunal, set up by the New Zealand Government, comprised of Judge Carrie Wainwright (presiding), Professor Wharehuia Milroy, Dame Margaret Bazley, and Professor Ranginui Walker, and was assisted by consulting historian and Tribunal member Dr. Robyn Anderson, the unanimous conclusion was that the Maori peoples NEVER conceded Sovereignty to the British at the signing of Te Tiriti O Waitangi (Te Tiriti O Waitangi).

Because of this, for well over a century, the Maori peoples have been treated as ‘second -class’ citizens within their own country. This has in many cases dramatically affected their health, their livelihoods, their status as landowners, their access to and protection of their ancestral heritage sites, and their ability to have any voice in the running of what was – and still is – their own country.

It is interesting to note that Chis Finlayson, Treaty Minister, basically dismissed the Tribunal findings out of hand, stating that the current New Zealand Government still holds Sovereignty over New Zealand. This quote, by him, typifies the attitude of many New Zealand politicians. “There is no question that the Crown has Sovereignty in New Zealand. This report doesn’t change that fact.” So why did the NZ Government commission such a Tribunal investigation, and why are they looking at the next stage of the Tribunal, which is to ascertain if and when the Government ‘assumed’ sovereignty? If the reaction is the same as it has been to Part 1 of the Tribunal, then why waste any more time and money on a report that allegedly will never be taken seriously by the current New Zealand Government?

The Maori people of New Zealand (or Aotearoa as they would prefer to call it), like many other Indigenous (or First Nations) Peoples around the world, are beginning to stand up for their dignity as a Nation in their own right, and not just some subjugated tribe of savages. The United Nations is very well aware of this, and allocates a lot of their time in supporting changes in these people’s status. So why will the New Zealand Government not take note of a Tribunal that they themselves had commissioned?

Towards the achievement of this aim, in 2006 the Maori Confederation of Chiefs bestowed on His Excellency Chief Charles Hohepa the greatest honour of the Maori Nation – he was SELECTED (not elected) to be the first Sovereign Mandate – the Sole Protector – of the Maori Nation. His Excellency Chief Charles Hohepa, has for many years been attempting to raise international funds that will see the status and the well-being of many Maori vastly improved, including the establishment of a new Capital City to be built at Waitangi, as the new focal point of the Maori Nation. He is doing this in his capacity of Sovereign Head of the Matua Karanga Foundation. To reach such an exulted position within a Nation requires a very powerful character with a strong moral code, as well as the ability to take a balanced view in any discussion or argument. This level of reputation, especially one based on mutual trust, is one that could very easily be destroyed.

Unfortunately even this exulted Maori status is but just a second-class level of citizenship, as can well be seen by the way H.E. Chief Hohepa was treated by the New Zealand legal system in 2007, following a 25 year old dispute over the trusteeship of the PWF (Peoples Worship in Freedom), an Outreach/First Aid Post facility to pick up people who were in crisis, or facing potential crisis or were victims of casualty and crisis situations.

In brief, several years ago, Chief Charles was incorrectly accused by people disputing his Trusteeship of the PWF, of trying to steal the assets of this charitable organisation, and they took him to court. Unfortunate for Chief Charles, especially in this instance, was the fact that he was not ‘Pakeha’, but a very well respected Maori Chief.

If the ruling elite of New Zealand were to have consisted of Pakeha and Maori, with equal status as has been defined by the outcome of the current Waitangi Tribunal, then a legal level playing field would have been established. In which case, the truth behind the shenanigans would soon have laid to rest any slur against “The Chief”. In the event, the New Zealand Court refused His Excellency Chief Charles Hohepa leave to present his own very clear and truthful defence.

A total travesty of justice that can never be sorted while Maori are treated as second class people in their own country. If so eminent a person as H. E Chief Charles Hohepa can be attacked by the New Zealand Attorney General with impunity, what help can there be for the poor Maori woodsman, or fisherman, or small farmer about to face compulsory purchase, or removal of his or her hereditary (Maori) rights, by an unsympathetic Government with no legal basis for acting?

Interestingly, the people who selected Chief Hohepa to his honoured position were fully briefed on the matter, and decided to dismiss the accusation totally.

A lot now rests on the ability of the New Zealand Government to honour its commitment, to allow the current Tribunal to complete the second stage of its investigations, but unlike the first stage, actually do something to allow the Maori Nation to acquire the status and ownership of the Nation it created, and never walked away from.

Importance of Computers in Medical Sector

Computers have now become an inseparable part of our life. Be it school or colleges or offices or hospitals or home, there is hardly any place where you can’t see a computer. The importance of computers can’t be confided in words. Apart from making our work simpler, easier and faster, computers have actually helped humans in many life threatening situations. And this contribution can’t be put into words.

Especially in the field of medical and hospitals, we have seen so much advancement which was not possible had it not been computers for our help there. In this article we will discuss some major areas in medical sector where computers have helped us humans and made our lives simpler, easier and better.

1. Computerized Robotic Operations: Earlier days, if a patient is sick and needs treatment from the doctor, the doctors from the hospital have to be available in the hospital with that patient all the time. Performing diagnostics, operating a patient and post operation checkups required a doctor to be physically available near the patient. Now it’s not the case. With the advancements of computers, hospitals have introduced cutting edge technologies and treatments methods using which a doctor can perform the diagnosis and checkups thousands of miles away from the patient.

Even operations are performed remotely with the help of robotic arm. The introduction of robotic operations has made lives of so many needy patients easier. If certain services are not available locally, the patient now needs not to travel hundreds of miles to go to a better hospital. The hospital and its services will come directly to him/her. The doctor can perform the remote operation with the help of the robotic arm placed near the patient and checking all the vital body factors on the digital display in front of him/her. It’s literally like doctor is performing the operation in person. The introduction of robotic operations has made the operation and treatment of the needy patients much faster, easier and cheaper at the same time.

2. Computerized Internal Diagnosis: There are often scenarios where the doctor needs to perform the internal diagnosis of the patient to get the clear picture and state of the disease. Certain tumors and cancer may seem neutralized from outside but from inside the situation can be completely opposite and this can’t be found out until unless a proper internal diagnosis of the infected body part is performed. Even performing CT Scans, X-Rays and other scans can’t give a proper state of the disease and can delay the treatment at the same time.

The introduction of computerized internal diagnosis has made the job so much easier, faster and effective. While employing the computerized internal diagnosis, most of the times a computerized tiny robot with a camera head is inserted in the body of the patient. The tiny robot makes its way through the infected part of the body providing real-time images of the internal parts at the same time. The doctors can literally see each and every area of the infected part and then can make justified decision about the criticality of the disease and can perform the treatment accordingly.

3. Computerized Electromagnetic Treatments: There are many minor to moderate internal and external medical problems which are now treated using the electromagnetic technologies with the help of computers. Many skin, hair and eyes related problems are now being resolved using the laser, radio and electromagnetic technologies.

Earlier these situations and many such medical ailments require performing an operation and keeping the patient in hospitals for days. With the introduction of electromagnetic treatments, these problems are being taken care without the operation and the patient need not to be hospitalized either. The patient can simply walk out and perform his/her daily rituals as earlier.

These are some of the very basic areas where computers have found their way to show how important they are in our medical sectors. Everyday new advancements are made in the medical sectors, many incurable diseases are now curable and all this is because of the advancement in the computers and technology sector. With computer’s speed, efficiency and applications increasing every day, many more improvements are expected in near future.

New Jersey’s Tax Exemption And Abatement Laws

P.L.1991, c.431 with final retroactive amendments effective August 5, 1992 consolidated, into one more flexible law, the various long term tax exemption laws under which municipalities may agree with private entities to undertake redevelopment projects in return for tax exemptions.

P.L.1991, c.441, effective for the first full tax year commencing after its January 18, 1992 enactment, consolidated the various five-year tax abatement and exemption laws into one, more standardized law to govern all tax abatements and exemption regardless of the type of structure.

Long Term Tax Exemption Law

Prior to 1993, which was the first full year of operation governed by the new Long Term Tax Exemption Law, under the provisions of N.J.S.A.40:55C-40, the “Urban Renewal Corporation and Association Law of 1961,” commonly known as the Fox-Lance Act, a qualified municipality (a municipality with “areas in need of rehabilitation”) could abate from 15 to 20 years the taxes on newly constructed industrial, commercial, cultural, or residential projects of a corporation, with profits in excess of the limited profits returned to the municipality, or from 30 to 35 years for condominium projects. Condominium projects were given 30 to 35 years in order to provide a realistic period for permanent financing. Also, prior to 1993 under the provisions of N.J.S.A.55:16-1 et seq., the “Limited-Dividend Nonprofit Housing Corporation or Association Law,” a qualified municipality could abate for up to 50 years the taxes on newly constructed housing. Further, under N.J.S.A.55:14I-1 et seq., a qualified municipality could abate for up to 50 years the taxes on newly constructed senior housing. Lastly, prior to 1993, under the provisions of N.J.S.A.40:55C-77, the “Urban Renewal Nonprofit Corporation Law of 1965,” basically the same types of properties and projects as the Fox-Lance Act could be abated for 20 to 25 years with all profits being returned to the municipality. In all cases under these property tax exemption laws in-lieu of tax payments were required.

Commencing in 1993 the provisions of N.J.S.A.40A:20-1 et seq. permitted a qualified municipality to abate the taxes on properties and projects in the same way the pre 1993 law did with the following notable exceptions:

A new, flexible in-lieu of tax formula was established with a phasing-in of payments in-lieu of taxes to occur under both the percent of gross rental formula and the percent of total project cost formula.

The formulas for computing payment in-lieu of taxes for both office projects and housing projects were changed. The minimum annual service charge for office buildings was reduced from 15 to 10 percent of the annual gross revenues of the project or units of the project. Municipalities retained the option of computing the payment in-lieu of taxes at no less than 2 percent of the total project cost or total project units cost. For housing projects the annual service charge was changed from a minimum of 15 percent to a maximum of 15 percent of annual gross revenue of the project or from a minimum 2 percent to a maximum 2 percent of the total project cost or total project unit cost.

The payment in-lieu of tax formulas remains basically unchanged for all other types of industrial, commercial or cultural projects.

Five-Year Exemption and Abatement Law

Prior to 1993, which was the first full year of operation under the new Five-Year Exemption and Abatement Law, there were three types of property to which a qualified municipality (a municipality with “areas in need of rehabilitation”) could grant a partial exemption and abatement for a five-year period.

These property types included:

Homeowner improvements (including additions and enlargements) made to one-unit or two-unit residential dwellings that were more than 20 years old. As determined by ordinance the first $4,000, $10,000 or $15,000 of increased value due to improvement on each unit could be exempted from taxation (see N.J.S.A. 54:4-3.72 to 3.79).

Commercial and industrial improvements and construction projects (with less than a 30% increase in building volume) could have the full assessed value of the improvement exempted with payments in-lieu of taxes made at 2%of project cost or 15% of annual gross revenues or an in-lieu of tax payment phased-in. (see N.J.S.A. 54:4-3.94to 3.112).

Multiple dwelling improvements or conversion of other types of structures to multiple dwellings could have up to 30% of the full value of the improvement or conversion alteration exempted. No in-lieu of tax payment was required (see N.J.S.A. 54:4-3.121 to 3.129).

Commencing in 1993 the provisions of N.J.S.A. 40A:21-1 et seq., the “Five-Year Exemption and Abatement Law,” which consolidated all provisions of the previous five-year abatement statutes, permitted a qualified municipality to grant partial exemptions and abatements on residential dwellings, non-residential structures and multiple dwellings in the same way the pre 1993 law did, with the following notable exceptions made to the new law:

A new, single definition of “areas in need of rehabilitation” was established to govern all exemptions and abatements which, if chosen, could enable an entire municipality to be designated as an area in need of rehabilitation (thus permitting new structures to facilitate infill construction).

The new five-year law also permitted, for the first time, tax abatements and exemptions for new construction of single family and multi-family dwelling units and non-residential structures rather than just improvements or enlargements to such properties.

The new law also increased the allowable maximum tax exemptions for the value added by an improvement from $4,000, $10,000, and $15,000 to $5,000, $15,000 and $25,000, respectively, as the municipal ordinance may specify.
