Tips for Cancer Patients September 12, 2008

Cancer is a disease in which a group of cells with in the body displays uncontrollable growth.

Acorrding to WHO: Cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide: it accounted for 7.9 million deaths (around 13% of all deaths) in 2007.

While a complete cure for cancer is still in its research phase, treatments such as Chemotherapy, Radiotherapy, and Surgery has been adopted as the current means to battling this deadly disease with varying success rates based on the stage of the disease.

However these treatments leave fatal side effects. In some cases, they might have actually have a bigger contribution to the patient’s death as opposed to the cancer dieasea it self. In this article I’ll focus on Chemotherapy.

20 Things you need to know about Chemotherapy is a good article that talks about how Chemotherapy works and what you need to do or find out from your doctor before the treatment. The main idea behind the treatment is to stop cell division of these cancerous cells. But this would also have a large impact to other cell that divides often, such as white blood cells (reducing immunity), red blood cells (reducing oxgyen lv in body), mouth cells (causing a dry and uncomfortable mouth). Other effects include, hair loss, dry / discoloured skin and nail and  bone marrow problems.

Free MBA September 11, 2008

MBA; Master of Business Administration; When people think of it, they usually link to high paying important positions such as CEOs, General Managers and Managing Directors.

However, along with the high paying and important positions, many graduates (some of whom I know) also didn’t get very far, and was left with a bucket load of debt. After all MBA is a very financially challenging degree. Most of them costing on average $40,000 per year.

Is Getting an MBA Worth it?” talks about an alternative form of education next to the MBA. Names PMBA (Personal MBA), it is an:

a web 2.0, Internet based, self-driven program, that focuses on a $1400 reading list of 70 books with web forums, discussion groups and coaching.

So for absolutely no cost (if we borrow the books from the library), we can gain the knolwedge on par with MBA graduates.

For people who are looking to start their MBA, I urge you to have a look at PMBA. Who knows, you could save yourself tens of thousands of dollars. Or if not, you would have gain more knowledge to prepare you for better marks in the actual MBA program.

Here is a PMBA site I came across: http://personalmba.com/

Just started blogging?

Need some good advice from experts?

Here’s a good link that talks about 1000 things a blogger has learnt. Click Here to view that article.

Just to give a tast, here’s the first five:

  1. Blogging is not ‘writing a blog’. Blogging is linking and commenting. Any writing is a bonus.
  2. Regular posting is important…
  3. But quality posting is even more important. Spending a week or more on a single post can be one of the most important things you ever do.
  4. First knowledge, then analysis, then ideas.
  5. A picture is worth a thousand words. More importantly, a picture is worth a thousand words in two hundred countries. The fact that readers don’t need to speak English to understand what you’re communicating can make a word-free post – or at least one with a good image – your most successful one.

Addiction – Wasted Youth September 5, 2008

What is the meaning of life? Many great philosopher has nibbled on this question with out being able to give an exact answer.

The truth is everyone’s life is so different and so variant, each with it’s own meaning. That’s what makes people’s life interesting, some so interesting that people will write about them, such is the case with biographies of famous people like Andrew Carnegie.

And many, through reading these biographies, are able to learn and improve the lives of their own.

Everyone has their problems with adiction, and I’m not afraid to admit that I too have my share of being adicted to comics. So off I set to search for stories of people with similar problems, to inspire me to do better. There’s an article I found which I would like to share: “Drugs rip dreams, then life, from pregnant teen” By Steve Damish ENTERPRISE MANAGING EDITOR (http://southofboston.net/entreports/heroin/day1.html)

It’s a touching story of a teenage girl who was a scholarship student, and a tallented dancer who ended up lossing everything including her life and her to be born baby, because of her uncurable addiction for Heroine. She was so far ahead of everyone, yet lost it all because of her addiction. Because she had lost command of her own self.

May we learn from these stories and never loss command of our self.

Did you sleep well? Sleep and Blood Pressure. September 3, 2008

Did you know poor sleeping quality and shorter sleeping time may increase the odds of high blood pressure (hypertension) later in life?

According to researchers, writes the article from American Heart Association (http://americanheart.mediaroom.com/index.php?s=43&item=496): “the odds of elevated blood pressure increased 3.5 times for those with low sleep efficiency and 2.5 times for those with sleeping periods of less than 6.5 hours, even after adjusting for gender, body mass index and socioeconomic status.”

Not only could high blood pressure kill the person, it is also said that they will have a drastic effect on one’s brain. They usually accumulate more and more holes in their brain over time, leading to more cognitive impairment, brain injury and memory loss.

Some advice for a good quality sleep:
1) Keep away from electro-magnetic interference to your brain by keeping electronics away from your bed.
2) Don’t do anything too attentive just before you sleep, this is what causes most dreams (when your subconscious is still active when you sleep).
3) Do something relaxing before going to sleep, such as listen to music, meditate. Make sure the brain is calm and relaxed before sleeping.
