Pay attention to warning signs of a stroke

PAY ATTENTION TO WARNING SIGNS OF A STROKE: 




At an ordinary barbecue stall, Kate stumbles and falls.  A guest offers to call an ambulance, but Kate convinces everyone that she is fine and that it is her new shoe's that made her fall.



HYPERTRIL
She seems a little pale, so her husband helps to brush off her clothes and pick a new food dish for her.  She then partied all night with the others. 



Her husband called later...to say he had taken her to the hospital, and that she died at 11 pm ! She had suffered a stroke. 

A neurologist says a person who gets a stroke should be treated within 3 hours to be saved.  This means that we must all be aware of whether a person gets a stroke.

A quick test is:

1)      
Ask the person to laugh -- They can not do this.

2)       Ask the person to speak a complete sentence.
3)       Ask the person to raise both arms -- It is not quite as it should be.
4)       Ask the person to stick out their tongue -- It will roll and squirm in their mouth.


A cardiologist (heart doctor) says:

“IF THIS FACT IS POSTED BY AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE, WE MAY SAVE MORE LIVES, AND POSSIBLY OUR OWN.”

We daily send all sorts of invitations, but now we can fill the internet with something EXTREMELY IMPORTANT!


If you think the same thing, copy this and together we just might actually save lives.

Hotel privacy curtains laden with germs

The privacy curtains that separate care spaces in hospitals and clinics are frequently contaminated with potentially dangerous bacteria, researchers said in Chicago this week.

To avoid spreading those bugs, health care providers should make sure to wash their hands after routine contact with the curtains and before interacting with patients, Dr. Michael Ohl, from the University of Iowa, Iowa City, said at the 51st Inter-science Conference on Anti-microbial Agents and Chemotherapy.

"There is growing recognition that the hospital environment plays an important role in the transmission of infections in the health care setting and it's clear that these (privacy curtains) are potentially important sites of contamination because they are frequently touched by patients and providers," Dr. Ohl told Reuters Health.


Health care providers often touch these curtains after they have washed their hands and then proceed to touch the patient.  Further, these curtains often hang for a long time and are difficult to disinfect.

In their study, Dr. Ohl and his team took 180 swab cultures from 43 privacy curtains twice a week for three weeks.  The curtains were located in the medical and surgical intensive care units and on a medical ward of the University of Iowa Hospitals.

The researchers also marked the curtains to keep track of when they were changed.

Tests detected Staphylococcus aureus bacteria, including the especially dangerous methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA), as well as various species of Enterococci -- gut bacteria -- some resistant to the newer antibiotic vancomycin.

The researchers used additional tests to identify specific vancomycin and methicillin-resistant strains to see whether the same strains were circulating and contaminating the curtains over and over.

The study found significant contamination that occurred very rapidly after new curtains were placed.

Of the 13 privacy curtains placed during the study, 12 showed contamination within a week.  Virtually all privacy curtains tested (41 of 43) were contaminated on at least one occasion.

MRSA was isolated from one in five curtains, and vancomycin-resistant Enterococci (VRE) from four in 10.  Eight curtains were contaminated with VRE more than once.  Three of these were of a single type, but the other five showed contamination with different VRE strains, which suggested recontamination was happening with bacteria from new sources.

Overall, two thirds of the swab cultures were positive for either S. aureus (26%), Enterococcus species (44%) or various bacterial species from a group known as gram-negative rods (22%).

"The vast majority of curtains showed contamination with potentially significant bacteria within a week of first being hung, and many were hanging for longer than three or four weeks," Dr. Ohl noted.

"We need to think about strategies to reduce the potential transfer of bacteria from curtains to patients," he added.  "The most intuitive, common sense strategy is (for health care workers) to wash hands after pulling the curtain and before seeing the patient.  There are other strategies, such as more frequent disinfecting, but this would involve more use of disinfectant chemicals, and then there is the possibility of using microbial resistant fabrics.  But handwashing is by far the most practical, and the cheapest intervention."

Miracle Soil Conditioner (A Natural Foliar Soil Solution)

CHEMICAL FERTILIZERS have come into widespread use throughout the Asia and Pacific regions. [Food & Fertilizer Technology Center, 2001] 

It was realized that fields which receive heavy applications of chemical fertilizers alone, decline crops productivity [Food & Fertilizer Technology Center, 2001].

CONSUMER’S DEMAND

The consumer demand is to minimize the use of inorganic fertilizers, and the search for an alternative source of fertilizer to reduce production cost, and to develop strategies to utilize organic fertilizers [Aguinaldo et al, 2003].

WHY USE MIRACLE SOIL CONDITIONER


Miracle Soil Conditioner helps to increase the nitrogen uptake of plants, and increase soil nitrogen utilization efficiency.  It encourages the uptake of potassium, calcium, magnesium, and phosphorous. 

MIRACLE SOIL CONDITIONER is capable of retaining soil nutrients in an exchangeable form to be made available to plants as required.  This high organic carbon compound creates a suitable environment for the microbial properties of the soil.  In short, the higher the organic matter content of the soil, the more minerals and nutrients are unlocked and made available to the plant. 


MIRACLE SOIL CONDITIONER, as a bio-activator, is highly recommended for all types of solanaceous plants such as tomatoes and pepper.  It is also good for corn, rice, sugarcane, fishpond and fruit trees because it’s main function is to correct the source of farmer’s problem...the soil acidity. 

MIRACLE SOIL CONDITIONER is also convenient and easy to use, and inexpensive, compared to other soil conditioner.  


MIRACLE SOIL CONDITIONER also acts as an organic insect repellent.

Healthy soils produce healthy crops, which do not require the support of artificial chemicals.

“Healthy soil, healthy plants, healthy people.”

FACTS ABOUT SOIL
  
A pH balance, or alkaline, doesn’t create an environment for viruses and bacteria to thrive and flourish.  Climate prefers an alkaline soil.  The acidity or alkalinity of the soil is measured by pH (potential hydrogen ions).  Basically it is a measure of the amount of lime/calcium contained in your soil, and the type of soil that you have.  Generally, soil in moist climates tends to be acidic and those in dry climates are alkaline. 

CURRENT PROBLEM IN FARMING

Soil acidity is rapidly becoming a problem in our region.  Each year, more soil samples have been found to be prone to acidity problem.  Acidic soil creates production problem: by limiting the availability of the essential plant nutrients and, thus, increase the soil solution’s toxic elements, such as aluminum and manganese, which are the major causes of poor crop performance and failure in production.  Below the soil pH 5.5, aluminum may be concentrated enough to limit or stop root development.  As a result, plants cannot absorb water and nutrients, become stunted, and exhibit nutrient deficiency symptoms.  Toxic level of manganese interferes with normal growth process in the aerial plant parts, which stunts the plants, discolours them, and causes poor yields.
