We are aware of the positive effects that regular physical exercise has on our bodies. We know that the more we exercise, lift weights and engage in physically challenging exercises the greater the likelihood that we increase muscle mass, improve our shape and lose weight. The results of this physical exercise can lead to an improvement in our physical strength, health and athletic performance. However, when it comes to the concept of exercising our eyes in order to improve our vision naturally, some people either have a skeptical response to this suggestion or they roll their eyes in disbelief. Many skeptics in the traditional eye care industry claim that eye exercises are not scientifically proven or ineffective. However, the truth is that eye exercises do work and there is evidence to point to this fact in the journal of the academy of ophthalmology. The eyes have muscles and some of these muscles do control the focusing power of the eyes, their strength and flexibility to keep the visual system in good shape. The process of performing these simple, quick, fun and easy eye exercise techniques leads to better natural vision without glasses. You may ask yourself the question if these eye exercises work then exactly how much improvement in my vision can I expect from such a program. Therefore, here is some information concerning this matter:

A realistic goal in the pursuit of an eye exercise program is the fact that the kind of vision improvement that leads to less dependence on your glasses and contacts is quite possible. Some people have cut their prescriptions in half and have only used their glasses only when it is absolutely necessary. This is due to the fact that their natural eyesight has improved greatly that they can now partake in many different daily activities without the use of their glasses.

There are other cases whereby some people have seen complete improvement in their eyesight and others to the point of obtaining 20/40 vision; the kind of visual acuity necessary to help them to pass the drivers eye exam to obtain a driver’s license. While 20/20 vision without glasses with such a program may seem very difficult, farfetched, or unattainable to most people, it is not impossible.

The extent of your vision improvement will depend on a variety of factors. As with any kind of exercise program, the vision improvement results that you will see from the pursuit of an eye exercise program will depend on a variety of factors. These include the level of commitment you are willing to devote to such a program. While the word commitment may scare some people, some incentives to stay on track with the eye exercise program is the fact that the techniques are user-friendly, simple, and easy to perform. Also, the program is not time consuming at all and will not take up a substantial amount of time to perform. Another important factor that will determine your ability to see successful results with such a program is consistency. From this point of view, this relates to your willingness to perform the eye exercises on a regular basis. For instance, if you have decided to practice the techniques 4 times a week, are you willing to stick to that particular routine on a week to week basis, without skipping weeks or days in between? In most cases the best results will be obtained from the person that does the program every single week without skipping a week or two in between. Therefore, consistency is required to obtain the best results from your program of eye exercises to achieve better natural vision without glasses.

Rare is the time when I actually am all caught up with my schedule. Whenever I think I am caught up, something happens that takes that and throws it out the window.

Such was the case this past week. I was very much happy with the fact that I was on schedule and I had everything in hand. Nothing makes me feel better.

Of course, this is mostly delusional, at least for me. If there ever was an award for being delusional, I am quite certain I would be at the top of the list. The amazing thing about being delusional is that you never think you are.

As I was wallowing in my delusion and enjoying every moment of it, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage came and said rather sharply, “Are you ready to go?”

At the moment, I had no idea what she was talking about. And so I responded, “Huh?”

I’m not sure if that is really a word or not, but it accurately described my delusional moment at that time. I had no idea what she was talking about.

“You haven’t,” she said, “forgotten what day it is, have you?”

I was tempted to say, “Of course not. It’s Tuesday.” Fortunately, I did not yield to that temptation and just responded with another, “Huh?”

With a disdaining look she said, “You would forget your head if it wasn’t attached.”

I wouldn’t tell her, but I probably would not miss my head if I would forget it. After all, I don’t wear a hat.

“Today,” she said in a very serene voice, “the two grandchildren are getting awards at school.”

I’m not quite sure if I forgot or if I was not listening when the instructions came my way. At this point, I was not going to let anybody know, particularly my wife.

“Oh, yes,” I said getting up from my chair, “I’m all ready to go. Let’s go.”

She gave me one of her classic sarcastic grins and we headed for the door.

Our one granddaughter was graduating from the third grade and the other from the fifth grade. Unfortunately, one was at 8:30 in the morning and the other was it 1 o’clock in the afternoon. It would make sense to have them all at once, but what has sense to do in our world today?

I did not want to complain, after all, it is our grandchildren, but I think the planning could have been just a little bit better than that. After all, sitting in the school cafeteria listening to the award ceremony is about as exciting as it can get.

The chairs that we had to sit on were uncomfortable, which was very fortunate for me because I was not tempted to fall asleep during the ceremony. I believe that was done on purpose.

Imagine getting an award for completing the third grade!

I cannot remember any such thing when I was going to grade school. Our great award was leaving school and going home in the afternoon. It just doesn’t get any better than that.

We live in a different world today where everybody gets an award for something or sometimes for nothing.

Then I remembered my cell phone in my shirt pocket. It is times like this that God had in mind when he invented this cell phone technology. I pulled out my cell phone and started checking my email.

Then I felt a sharp pain in my right ribs (thanks Eve) and I heard a voice saying, “Put that away and pay attention.”

Slowly and reluctantly, I returned my cell phone to my shirt pocket and tried to pay attention but I didn’t have enough quarters. Paying attention can be very expensive when you’re in situations like this.

The problem is that the grade school, particularly the third grade, had more children than my grandchildren. They were trying to give awards and recognition to all the children and I was only interested in one, my granddaughter.

I was musing on this for a while and then my companion said, “Look, there she is.”

When she said that, out came her cell phone and she began taking pictures of our granddaughter walking up to the stage to get an award. I can’t use my cell phone, but she’s at liberty to use her cell phone. Where’s the fairness in that?

Taking a hint from my wife, I reached for my cell phone only to realize that I was too late and the moment was gone. I glanced over at my wife and all I could see was the big smile on her face and her saying, “I got her picture.” All I could do was return her smile and congratulate her on getting the picture.

After each of the award ceremonies my wife and I went forward and she took pictures of me and the grandchildren together which made her rather happy.

All the way home that afternoon, she was giggling and chattering very excitedly. “Her” grandchildren received some awards. According to her, these were very special awards.

I smiled and was tempted to say, “Aren’t they my grandchildren too?” Why spoil the moment. She was excited and happy and it was worth my silence.

I was reminded of what Solomon said. “A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak” (Ecclesiastes 3:7).

A wise man knows when “to keep silence.”

It is often stated that the use of automation has been much lower in the healthcare industry than in any other industry. However, in recent times, the immense benefits of health care automation are being recognized more and more. It has been seen that health maintenance providers and organizations making their systems fully automated, are exhibiting consider progress in the quality of care provided, improvement in the level of patient satisfaction and increase in the ability to deal with emergencies.

An automated system adds substantially to the quality of service in any sector. The health maintenance industry is no exception to the rule. Given the complexities involved in patient care and security, there is absolutely no doubt that health care automation is going to make the entire system much more efficient, quick and cost-effective, thereby giving a boost to the quality of care provided. If all the essential information regarding patients, their medical history and their ongoing treatments is stored on an automated system, it saves a great deal of time for both the health maintenance providers and the patients, thereby lowering the usage of too many resources.

Although the health care sector has been using electronic health records for years, they have also started recognizing the advantages of automation through bar code technology. The process of automated patient identification lowers the use of administrative resources, henceby reducing administrative costs substantively and giving a boost to the quality of care.

Let us discuss the various aspects that have been seen to improve with the use of bar code technology in the health maintenance industry:

Admission of Patients: The registration and admission process of patients can be made automated by the use of bar code on patient wristbands, records and medical forms, which in turn makes the entire procedure of admitting patients quicker and more convenient.

Care and safety of Patients: The bar code of a patient can be directly linked to their medical history and other health information, which helps immensely in determining the accurate medications and treatment procedures for them. It is an effective way to ensure better health care and complete safety for the patients.

Hospital Pharmacy: Bar code information on prescriptions and medication labels enabling an appropriate use of drugs and dosages.

Laboratory Purpose: Labels on the test tubes, Petri dishes and slides provided with patient bar code information, results in a more accurate collection of specimen and data.

Patient Billing: Bar code automation leads to a more correct billing and medical charges by the use of bar code on patient statements and medical supplies.

Health care automation is an excellent way to make the system more efficient, organized, prompt and unduly cost-effective. Information technology is helping the health maintenance sector in a variety of ways like electronic medical records, computerized billing, automated patient identification and many more. Amazingly, the organizations using the automated system have shown records of reduced death rates, reduced compliance in medical matters and costs. With so many advantages and benefits, a fully automated system is becoming a trend in the health care sector.

The microwave oven has been a staple in most homes for decades now. While some use their microwave for movie night or reheating, others have turned microwave cooking into an art form, crafting mouth-watering dishes using only a microwave. Microwave ovens have come a long way since they were first introduced in the late 1960s. They've gotten quite a bit smaller, not to mention less expensive, and have plenty of new features to meet the needs of all types of microwave users. Here are some of the latest technologies sweeping through the microwave industry.

Built-In Microwaves
In the past you had two options when selecting a microwave: countertop or over the range. With the increased demands for more seamless kitchen designs, a third option is now available – a built-in microwave oven. These ovens are mounted directly to the wall so it integrates with your cabinetry. Built-in microwaves come in two standard sizes, which correspond to standard cabinetry widths, so if you're looking for a built-in microwave, make sure you purchase the correct size.

Convection Oven / Microwave Combo
These units are fantastic for people who want a second oven, but do not have the room for a double oven. You get a convection oven, capable of baking or roasting foods at temperatures ranging from 225 to 450 degrees Fahrenheit, along with a microwave oven with plenty of features of its own. If you've never used a convection oven before, there are a few differences between it and a standard oven, but it would have been a welcome addition to any kitchen. Some of these combo units actually allow you to combine the convection and microwave functionality to cook food in even less time.

Smart Microwaves
It seems the term smart is being applied to everything these days from phones to televisions, and now even microwaves. This new wave of smart microwaves features humidity sensors that continuously measure the level of humidity in the microwave and adjust the cooking power and time so all your food comes out perfectly cooked. Smart microwave technology keeps your veggies crisp and your pasta al dente.

Grill Microwave
A microwave that grills? Absolutely. If you love grilling, but are not a fan of how long it takes or how often you need to check the food, a grill microwave is the perfect option for you. It allows you to grill your food in less time than conventional methods directly in your microwave. This technology usually requires the use of a special plate, but you'll have delicious grilled foods in a fraction of the time, without having to leave your kitchen. This microwave heats the grill plate, when used, instead of heating the food directly, allowing you to enjoy perfectly sared meat that is not rubbery.

Microwaves have advanced significantly over the last few decades, giving users more freedom in cooking, while delivering delicious, nutritious, perfectly cooked food. If you've long used your microwave for more than TV dinners and soup, check out some of the newer models and find out which features are right for you.

Tea is an interesting commodity in that it is both widely sold online, and in brick-and-mortar stores. Whether you’re a die-hard tea enthusiast or lifetime tea drinker, or are just getting into the drink, you may be wondering whether it’s a better choice to buy through online stores, or local tea shops.

Here I give a guide to help you decide which choice works best for you.

Pros and cons of buying online

Buying tea online has the advantage of opening up a staggering amount of variety. Nearly all tea companies have online stores, and with increased globalization, it is even possible to find companies that direct-ship from countries of tea production, such as China or India. Shopping online also opens up the possibility for buying the top-quality loose-leaf artisan teas.

There are several disadvantages to online shopping. One is shipping; thankfully, for tea, this cost is usually relatively low, but it can be substantial when you only want to order a small amount. Online shopping is not suited for a small or casual purchase of a single item; it only makes sense for bulk ordering. When shipping overseas, where costs might run as high as $15 for a box of teas, you need to make an even bigger purchase to make the balance worthwhile.

Another disadvantage is that the staggering amount of variety can be intimidating. How do you know what company to buy from when there are literally hundreds to choose from? And many of these companies, in turn, have hundreds of teas in their catalogs.

Buying online is best when you want to buy a relatively large shipment of loose-leaf tea, when you already have an idea of what you are looking for, when you are price-conscious and want to get the best quality and the lowest prices.

Pros and cons of buying an a brick-and-mortar store

Local brick and mortar stores offer a very different sort of advantages over online buying. One is sampling: you can see, and often smell (and in some stores, even brew and taste) the products you are interested in, before buying them. The face-to-face contact with staff, often the owner in very small businesses, can be useful too, especially if the employees are knowledgeable. Local businesses can also impart a sense of community, so you’re not just buying tea, but contributing to the local community in your city or town. And lastly, if you live near a business, it is easy to drop in casually for a quick, small purchase of a single item.

The biggest disadvantage of local stores is lack of availability. Many people in the U.S. don’t live near any stores selling good loose-leaf tea. Some stores might have a good selection, but not have the best quality or freshness of their teas. Other tea shops might be good, but not cover the sort of product you’re looking for (British tea culture and Japanese tea culture, for example, can be pretty non-overlapping).

So what makes sense for me?

My quick answer would be: it depends. It depends on what you’re looking for, and it depends on where you live and what sorts of businesses are near you. Buying online is better for loose tea, the best quality, getting the best deals, and making large purchases. Buying locally is best for supporting your local community, having face-to-face interactions, seeing the product you’re getting up-close, and for making small, casual purchases.

Cloud Computing, a computing paradigm is one of the easiest means of accessing and storing data over the Internet, instead of storing data in the computer hard drive. It is also recognized as a large pool of systems that helps us to remain connected with private or public networks and to provide dynamically scalable infrastructure for data, file storage and application.

With the launch of this technology, it significantly abridged the storage of content, delivery, cost of computation, and application hosting. It has a potential of transforming a data center from a capital-intensive set up to a variable priced milieu.

According to one of the research industries – Forrester, defines Cloud Computing as a pool of abstracted, highly scalable, and managed compute infrastructure capable of hosting end customer applications and billed by consumption. Whereas, the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has developed the definition of Cloud Computing as a model for enabling convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with a minimal management effort or service provider interaction.

The characteristic of Cloud Computing consists of self-service, where a customer can request and manage their own computing resources. An access to the broad network permits service to be available for the private networks or the Internet. This technology provides a pool of shared resources, where the customer draws from a pool of computing resources, usually in a remote data centre.

Cloud Computing service models

The services of Cloud Computing are clustered in three categories – Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS).

Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)

In this service model, the cloud based applications are offered to the customer, as a service on demand. It is a single instance of the service that runs on distant computers “in the cloud” which are owned and operated by others and gets connected to users’ computers via the Internet and, usually, a web browser. Social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and Google are all examples of SaaS, though users able to access the services via any Internet enabled device.

Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS)

The platform-as-a-service (PaaS) model is a level above the Software-as-a-Service setup and provides hardware, network and operating system, so that a customer can design its own application and software. In order to meet the requirements of the applications such as scalability and manageability, a predefined combination of Operating System OS and application servers is offered by PaaS providers such as restricted J2EE, LAMP platform (Linux, Apache, MySql and PHP), etc., for example, at every stage of the process to develop, test and ultimately host their websites, web developers can use individual PaaS environments.

Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS)

Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) is a basic computing and storage capability, which is provided by a standardized service over the network. This model has made the workload easier by pooling data centre space, storage systems, networking equipment, servers, etc. together and making them available. In addition to it, the customer can develop and install its own operating systems, software and applications.

Cloud Computing deployment models

To make available and to deploy applications, enterprises can choose Cloud Computing on Public, Private or Hybrid clouds. In order to determine the right cloud path for each organization, Cloud Integrators play a vital role.

Public Cloud

By and large, services provided by a public cloud are offered over the Internet and are operated and owned by companies, which use it to offer swift access to reasonable computing resources to other organizations or individuals. Through this deployment model, consumers don’t need to purchase supporting infrastructure, hardware or software, which is owned and managed by providers.

Private Cloud

In this deployment model, the infrastructure of the cloud is solely operated for a specific organization and is managed by the organization or a third party. While providing more control of resources and steering clear of multi-tenancy, private clouds exist to take advantage of the various cloud’s efficiencies.

Hybrid Clouds

This deployment model of Cloud Computing coalesces both public and private cloud models. A service provider can utilize third party Cloud Providers in a full or partial manner amid hybrid clouds, and thus escalating the flexibility of computing.

Hence, for the everyday computer user, this technology provides numerous options as well as to large and small businesses. And for organizations and individuals, Cloud Computing offers benefits, and the action moves to the interface flanked by multiple groups of service consumers and suppliers.

If you are a working professional or a college student or simply a person who spends a lot of time working on the computer chances are you may have suffered from dry eyes at some point in time. The symptoms of dry eye can sometimes become a nuisance especially if it interferes with your normal daily activities whether or not you are at work or at play. Some of the causes of this eye problem include the following: a deficiency in tear production by the tear glands that causes dryness in the eyes. Also, inflammation in the tear ducts is another factor that causes dry eyes or aggravates the symptoms of dry eyes. Other risk factors include people in certain occupations that require extensive use of computers. People who frequently use digital devices such as smart phones, laptops, I pads etc. A particularly high risk factor includes women 50 years of age and older. According to statistics on vision health about 4.88 million American women age 50 and older suffer from this vision condition. This is a particularly large risk group due to the fact that post-menopausal women experience negative changes in the surface of the eyes associated with hormonal changes. This eye problem is a treatable vision condition and you can relieve or reduce its symptoms with natural remedies.

Some of the symptoms of this condition include the following: dryness in the eyes, redness, irritation, burning eyes, light sensitivity, watery eyes and itching etc. Here are some natural tips and home remedies that you can put into practice to relieve or reduce dry eye: One thing that you can do to resolve this vision health problem is to reduce the time that you spend using computers and digital devices. Due to the fact technology is an integral part of American culture this can sometimes seem like an impractical suggestion. A solution therefore involves the practice of certain blinking techniques to correct the problem. For instance, if your work requires you to spend a lot of time staring at the computer take regular periodic breaks to perform some blinking exercises in rhythm with your breathing every 20 minutes. This will stimulate the production of natural moisture in the eyes to reduce the problem of dry eyes.

Another suggestion is to increase your intake of certain foods that are good sources of omega-3 fatty acids in your diet. Such foods include salmon, tuna, mackerel and sardines. These foods are rich in Omega-3 Fatty acids; an ingredient that reduces the symptoms associated with this eye problem. Foods like Olive Oil can reduce inflammation in the eyes which is another symptoms of this eye problem.

Another remedy includes splashing cold water on your eyes at least twice a day. Additionally, something that you can do to avoid aggravating your dry eye symptoms includes wearing contact lenses. Also, certain prescription medications worsen dry eye symptoms such as medications used to treat colds and allergies. Therefore, you can discuss with your eye doctor a way to try to resolve these problems. The pursuit of an eye exercise program to improve your vision naturally provides natural techniques and remedies to reduce the problems associated with dry eyes. These techniques stimulate the natural tear production in the eyes thereby relieving the symptoms associated with dry eyes.

Discounting, in traditional businesses is a medium for sellers or retailers to clear their inventory and replenish it with new stock. However, in the era of online marketplaces it has emerged as a means to attract buyers as a swarm of bees.

Furthermore, discounting served both as a boon and a bane for eCommerce companies, as it helped acquire customers in no time and in massive numbers. This also led to a new user habit, as a consequence of which users got hooked to discounting and cart sizes would only be high when there an on going discount or an offer.

In the last couple of months we have seen the downfall of various start-ups which was a consequence of unrealistic discounts. As getting products and services at unrealistic discounted prices emerged as the only motivation for a user to try out a new product. Such users could never be identified as repeat users, as they moved to other platforms when discounting was withdrawn.

Perhaps, ecommerce giants are taking steps in the direction of customer retention, which directly has an impact on the Lifetime value of a customer, also a marginal rise in the average order size.

For instance, Go-Jek, an Indonesian start-up managed to gamify their app which a user can earn they pay for any of the service, use Go-Pay (home brewed waller by Go-Jek). A user can exchange the points for meal or gift vouchers to MacBooks or iPhones, to raise ambitions and drive retention on their app.

Hence, discounting as a tool to acquire new users is effective, however, it should be strategized in such a way that it improves the lifetime value of the user and makes them come back owing to the entire experience of using your product.

Post acquisition, one should have greater focus on driving customer satisfaction, enhancing the quality of service and maintaining an unceasing supply at all times. Laser sharp focus on user retention with innovative ways to increase the lifetime value, with an aim to de-addict users hooked to discounts, is the next leap in the future of online businesses. Giving discounts on next purchase is also a great motivational factor to push repeat rate.

To unleash the power; customer retention with loyalty programs and wallet discounts or gamification that drives retention is the next level up. First find ways to attract customers and create a magic with your technology and human resources; to obtain the most on a trajectory to the future.

Earlier this year, Cisco announced replacement switches to the 1841/2800/3800 routers.  The older routers have not entirely reached end of sale, but the newer routers (1941/2900/3900) offer big changes in router licensing.

Why is it different?  Similar to a PIX or ASA, the new routers use license keys and a universal image to determine the available features. This new licensing scheme shows a clear difference between the version of IOS installed and the feature set installed.  You can change them independently and they don’t afect each other.

The license structure has been streamlined, as there are only 4 feature sets.  None of the packages overlap.  They are:

IP Base: The default feature set.  It has support for the most common routing protocols (RIP, OSPF, EIGRP, BGP), common WAN technologies (MLPPP, MLFR), and common LAN technologies (802.1q trunking).

Data: The Data license adds support for MPLS, ATM, IS-IS, and non-IP L3 protocols.

Voice: The UC (Unified Communciations) feature set adds support for voice interfaces, CallManager Express, and Unity Express modules.

Security: The Security feature set adds IPSec VPN capabilities, SSL VPN capabilities, and IOS firewall features.

Cisco allows you to pick and choose better depending on your application.   You will always need to be concerned with the amount of DRAM and Flash memory installed to make sure that you can run the proper features.
