O man, Im loosing my hair

Saturday, January 30th, 2010

So, your hair is beginning to bald

male pattern baldness causes acute anxiety in most men as they associate their hair loss with premature aging, and deterioration in looks which goes on to hurt self-confidence. It’s a gripping emotional domino effect. Hair loss which is also known as Androgenic Alopecia effects over ninety percent of men. sixty percent of men are balding well before their fifties. This common condition that effects nearly ALL men is also known   as “male pattern baldness (mpb)”.

The main reasons for alopecia are :

Testosterone the male hormone
heredity (That dna programming controls if your follicles will die due to hormonal    imbalances.

balding typically occurs fist in the crown or temples. Loosing hair in the temples has the most noticable effect on appearance as it’s most noticeable. Total male pattern baldness usually occurs over a period of 5 to 10 years, though some men can loose all their hair in as little as twelve months. This quick loss is usually because of dht spreading due to dna programming.

What can you do about alopecia?

This is where must try to do your homework and depending on what stage of male pattern baldness you are at will direct your best solutions. One treatment all early stage alopecia sufferers MUST implement is dht blockers . These are the proven hair follicle slaughterers. Dht blockers stop them dead in thier tracks.

The most common off the shelf treatments for alopecia are :

    * Propecia (Finisteride)
    * Rogaine Minoxidil
    * Dht blockers (Provillus)

All the above except Porvillus are FDA approved. Roagine was accidently discovered while minioxidil was being tested in acne treatment tests. It was seen to cause hair growth in the treated areas. Propecia is obtainable by prescription only. You should be speaking to your gp immediatly when you are worried about balding. You may have read or heard that there are known side effects for rogaine or finesteride. There has been many cases where men complained of lower sex drive and tiredness. But this is usually for the first 4 to 6 weeks as their systems adopt with the drug. The effects then subside. Having said that only a tiny percentage of men get these side effects. .

Never purchase propecia online

You can only get propecia by getting your doctor to fill out a prescription. Dont be fooled by those online stores claiming to have true propecia available. These are always counterfit and will not have any positive effect on your hair loss. The sad thing is , your losing more hair all the while you thinking your online purchase is working. The greater amount of time alopecia is left untreated the more difficult it is to get descent results. hair loss when spotted early can be completely stopped by dht inhibitors.

Always be wary of the hair loss scams that are out there. Even celebrity endorsed ads can be scams.

You can speed up any dht supplements you take or finisteride by taking care of your diet and complimenting the dht inhibitors with foods like sea food that also contain dht blocking properties. I include simple diet tips also in my bonus. You can find this information on my blog free if you read some of the blog posts related to food and hair loss.

Lots of people find it good to mix shampoos, and hair growth products with a healthy lifestyle. This includes some exercise, quitting smoking if that is a habit, and eating the right foods.

balding shampoos

male pattern baldness shampoos are also good (but only when used with other treatments) for promoting blood circulation and oxygenation in the scalp. However dht shampoos on their own are NOT enough. Revivogen is by far the best dht and haor loss shampoo on the market today. It’s good to bring out a nice shine in your hair and is also mild compared to other high chemical shampoos.

Does smoking cause balding?

Smoking does have an effect on the blood circulatory system. Nicotine causes blood vessels to constrict, which makes it harder for your heart to push the blood throughout your body which then leads to hair follicles getting less of what they really need to maintain healthy hair growth. Yes this does have an effect on your hair but not enough to cause male pattern baldness.

The best you can do when it comes to balding is simply haing good knowledge on the topic. Being aware of the effects occurring that are causing you to lose your hair and how to fight these hormonal changes is key. If thinning hair is left untreated, the follicles will certainly die and not produce anymore hair. The only way to restore dead follicles is through expensive hair restoration.

Real Estate and Home Value Appraisal

Saturday, January 30th, 2010

What is the best and most precise means to find a realistic snapshot of real estate prices in California? Unless you are a real estate master who intimately monitors the property market and its variations, you should either rely on bits and pieces of figures released every now and than in the news, or spend lots of time inspecting and comparing prices of real estates. Both choices appear to be a discovered task for the general property owner or home buyer.

Fortunately there is a quicker and much simpler way to have a true grasp of California real estate values and search home value. The secret is named Comparable home sales appraisal report.

Comparable home sales appraisal reports are based on the principle of exchange. In other words this report can produce accurate estimates of home values in a particular area. If you need to know what state of real estate values presently is, you need to find a Comparable report for California.

An Comparable statement is ordinarily completed by gathering and studying several dimension related information for property reassessment. It may take into account real estate publications, public records and details of each comparable sale. Usually these studies are made for a certain type of property and in this case make the date of sale, location, style, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, square foot, site size, etc. are taken into circumstance. The result must show a price of similar property in same location. There are some adjustments that are made after the report has been compiled, as the rate of any property cannot be only determined by pure systematic information and there is a huge amount search of the buyers or owners personal thoughts.

It is apparent that this huge amount of data needs to be prepared by someone and for this reason the price of such report may be quite high, specially if you are concerned in the overall picture of California real estate prices. However there are now many online service that can perform the job as good as a real estate professional. Some of the online services are free and other you can get for very small fee. Some sites even offer Comparable reports that are thoroughly surveyed by a specialist. Other benefit of the online service is that you can get the information pretty quick; in some cases you find a detailed Comparable report of real estate prices for California within a few minutes. The process can be significantly faster if you are interested in a particular location and not into the whole state.

Real Estate Hunting

Saturday, January 30th, 2010

In a down economy it’s the best time to find deals on all things real estate. People are more inclined to sell off valuable property at prices they would have never dreamed of selling for 10 years ago. The longer it takes the economy to bounce back the more likely you are to find people unloading homes, business properties and land at extremely low prices.

It’s important to not be in a hurry when you are seeking to buy real estate for yourself. This includes if you’re simply looking to invest or if you’re looking for an office or home for yourself. Hurried purchases or fear that someone will get a bid in on it before you can often lead to over spending. It’s best to take your time and plan out your goals as well as a budget before you break down and spend your hard earned money.

Some people are banking on buying low and selling high. When searching for an investment property it might not seem like a bad time to buy at all. If you can afford to own something now and pay on it until the economy fully flips back around you have a good chance of earning back a lot more cash than you’re putting in. The difficulty in doing this however, is that no one knows when the economy will become excellent again.

As always the best rewards come with a bit of a risk factor. If you can afford to invest now and wait to sell then you should probably consider investing in some great real estate at bargain prices. The risk as noted earlier is that you may have to hold onto that property for quite some time before you can make back a healthy gain. Optionally, you can rent the property out for now and at least earn some money back on it while you’re waiting.

West Virginia Physician Jobs FAQ

Saturday, January 30th, 2010

When you are thinking about taking a physician contract, it’s natural to be excited and to look forward to a long career. There can be pitfalls for the unwary, however, and here are some questions wich may help you avoid those pitfalls.

Q: Should I hire a lawyer to review my physician employment contract?

A: In general, yes. The choice of a lawyer is critical. Find someone well versed in medical contract law, as well as the state’s laws in which you will practice. Try to find an attorney recommended by someone else. Also, make sure the attorney has enough time to review the contract in a timely manner. Negotiations could be hampered by a slowed response time.

Q: If I am a resident, when should I decide upon accepting a position?

A: As a general rule, the earlier the better. The more time you have to work on license applications, hospital privileges, finding a new home and moving arrangements, the less stress you’ll encounter. Many hospitals recruit for summer positions in the fall and early winter. Don’t think all of the “good” physician jobs are taken by the end of winter. Physicians throughout the year because contract expirations can occur at any time. Don’t worry. Have confidence that the right position will be available.

Q: Who handles negotiations, me or my recruiter?

A: Whenever possible, your recruiter should handle negotiations for physician practice opportunities. Having a liaison reduces the potential for heated arguments between two parties. Keep in mind, professional recruiters regularly perform this task.

Tips On Buy A Mountain Bike

Friday, January 29th, 2010

When choosing a new mountain bike you must consider what you are going to do with it, if all you want your new mountain bike for is going for a ride in the woods with the dog or a nice leisurely ride on the canal path well you will not need a full suspension downhill machine with 10cm travel on the forks and an articulated rear end with damping and rebound control.

How to Begin.

If you do want to go for an easy ride in the park you don’t need to spend a lot, if you think you will go riding off road then big tread tires maybe all you need, but if you think you might try some rough stuff then you will need suspension.

Gears will probably be Shimano, brakes must be V-brakes, but could be made by a few different manufacturers, all the rest of the MTB components will depend on how much you can spend. If you go to your local bike shop or big sports store and see what they’ve got to offer, then buy it or have look on the Internet and maybe you’ll,you will find the same equipment at a more affordable price.

The Next Step Up.

So maybe you want to be a bit more adventurous, more off-road, more forest tracks and dry boulder river beds, then you’ll need something a little lighter, with suspension forks. All this will cost you more money, but will be worth it for the extra enjoyment and adventure. With a better mountain bike it will have a sportier handling and because it is lighter, it will be easier to struggle up the hills before you come flying down the other side. The components will again be Shimano and the quality will depend on how much money you can spend. V-brakes and Rapid-fire gear shifters, along with Shimano chain set, bottom bracket and headset. Handle bars, stem and seat pin should be alloy and along with a comfortable saddle you’ll be ready to take to the hills.

More Money, More Bike.

The next rung up on the mountain bike ladder would be good enough to race on. There are many to choose from, get on the net and surf the bike manufacturers sites and all the shop sites along with the magazines for juicy photos of the bikes.

The top manufacturers in this price range, I would say are: – Trek, Giant, Specialized and Cannondale, these companies make the nicest frames with the best mountain bike parts available at the price, gears will be either Shimano or SRAM, brakes could be V-brakes or cable disc brakes, both are very good and light, most of the other MTB parts, of course will be Shimano and as usual get the best you can afford. There are many combinations of hubs and rims to make up your wheels; hubs from Shimano and rims form Mavic are the usual mix. Then you have to choose which suspension forks to put on you bike, you may not get a choice, depending on which bike you buy, the main ones are RST, Suntour, Marzocchi, Fox, RockShox and Manitou suspension forks buy any of these and you wont go far wrong.

Why Personalized Wristbands Help Your Fundraising Efforts

Thursday, January 28th, 2010

If you want to do some fundraising for a special cause have you considered using personalized wristbands as your promotional tool?  This all started with Lance Armstrong, the multi-titled cyclist, who battled and survived with cancer for a long period of time.  He got his message out to people by having his “Support Cancer” message printed on a silicone wristband.

This particular wristband was yellow which supported the Livestrong cause for cancer sufferers.  People would buy these yellow wristbands to support this cause and the proceedings of the wristband went into research to help find a cure for cancer which is still greatly needed today.

Lance’s yellow wristband worked because people looked up and took notice consequently raising thousands upon thousands of dollars for his cause.  This made a huge impact on other groups and charities and many organizations started to promote their cause by customizing their own uniquely colored wristbands.  If you didn’t already know, each charity or organization chooses a color to distinguish their cause, they then put their logo or message onto the wristband.  Each color represents a different cause – the red band representing AIDS is a well-known one.

As a result when you buy a wristband from certain awareness programs or fundraising events, you not only get to have a fashionable colorful wristband to wear but you help the cause with your money donation.  It’s a great win-win situation!

The majority of these custom wristbands are made from silicone or rubber.  These materials are the most durable which stretch and are comfortable to wear.  There are also wristbands made of plastic and leather but these are not as popular especially as far as fundraising goes.

You can buy wristbands by going online and searching for a wristband manufacturer, this shouldn’t be too hard as there are many respectable ones on the Internet.  You simply then follow the instructions on their website and choose your desired color, your message and if you want it printed or embossed onto the wristband.  You then choose how many you wish to purchase, but remember, the more you buy in bulk the cheaper each wristband becomes.

Besides giving away wristbands to help a cause, you can use them as identification bands where you have a name and maybe telephone number printed on them.  These are ideal for a sports team or putting on your children in case they get lost while at an event.

Lastly, the young and trendy like to wear colorful wristbands purely as a fashion accessory.  It’s easy to accessorize any outfit with a cheap wristband that comes in a variety of colors. Oh, and don’t forget you can get wristbands at discount prices when buying in bulk.

Musical Instruments: The Piano

Thursday, January 28th, 2010

The stylishness and complexity that has always been connected with the piano makes it the most elegant musical instrument of all time.  The vibrations produced by hammers drumming strings is how pianos make different tunes.  Moreover, lots of people think that the piano is the hardest musical instrument to learn or master.

For a person to master a complicated musical instrument like the piano, he/she needs to pour dedication and lots of practice.  Compared to other widely held musical instruments like guitars, learning to easily play a piano takes patience together with note memorization.

Even though learning to play the piano is difficult, lots of legendary musicians like Beethoven and Mozzart have composed numerous orchestral symphonies with their pianos.  In our modern age, pianos and keyboards are crucial to the music industry more than ever.

The functioning of pianos and other kinds of musical instruments with keys are complex in so many ways.  A piano’s bulk and shape all contribute to its well-defined sound-generating quality and one is made by way of manual labor that is carried out by experienced and very skilled masters.

Piano-building can be compared to car manufacture.  The piano’s body, keys, strings, and other workings are produced independently and assembled.  Up to 12,000 pieces make up a single piano.

The Piano’s Frame

Wood such as maple or cherry is the basic material to make a piano’s frame.  Pianos that are made with straight frames are easier to make than the ones that have curved frames such as grand pianos.  These curved frames are made up of thin, glued layers of maple that are bent while the glue is wet and set to harden. 

The Sound Board

A piano’s sound board is a type of bendy and elastic wood that serves as the piano’s vocal chords.  The common material used is spruce because of its flexibility and this flexibility enables it to vibrate.  A piano’s strings should be in sync with the sound board in order to deliver a concise, clear and audible sound.  The key to have this synchronization is a bridge and this bridge is the object why the sound board and the strings give off synchronized tunes.

The Piano’s Strings

The individual in charge of arranging and attaching all 230 strings is the piano stringer.  Connecting piano strings is both long and risky.  The strings themselves are very razor-sharp and can definitely cut flesh. 

The Piano Keys

The set of keys on a piano is its most noticeable feature.  These carefully placed keys made from ebony and ivory are what enable piano players to create different musical masterpieces. 

After each and every piano parts have been fully assembled, tuning it will be next step and will take several processes.  Voicing a piano demands someone who has years of tuning experience as well as good hearing.  In order to achieve the proper tune for each piano key, the piano tuner scrapes and sharpens each single hammer that is connected to every individual key. 

After the piano has been tuned and toned, piano players can now play their favorite music and even compose their own symphonies.
