The Best Treatment and Institution for COPD Patients

Chronic lung disease can impact your life in every way. It can be debilitating physically, of course, but it can really take a toll on you mentally as well. The only options to treat these conditions initially were basically just to relieve some of the symptoms. These treatments, however, did not stop the progression of the disease and ultimately in the end just wasn’t efficient. The Lung Institute is the leading provider in lung treatment because it offers and alternative treatment that is effective, efficient, safe, and can even cure your disease.

The process begins with tests and exams to help physicians get a better understanding of your condition. The stem cells will then be harvested from either blood or bone marrow. The collection of stem cells through blood venous is the most common and preferred method. In some cases, however, it may be necessary to go the bone marrow route since the concentration of stem cells are considerably higher in bone marrow. The stem cells will have to be filtered and extracted from the blood that has been collected. Finally, you will have those stem cells inserted back into the blood stream. After a few minutes, the heart will carry those stem cells through your heart and into the lungs. Here the stem cells will become trapped and the healing process can begin.

While most have heard of stem cells, not many understand exactly how they work. Stem cells are not like any other cell in the body. According to Cedars-Sinai, these cells are renewable and have yet to form into a specific tissue or organ. This means that if you place a stem cell in injured or damaged parts of the lungs it will replicate and replace those tissues.

According to lifestylesafter50.com, the Lung Institute treats conditions such as COPD, pulmonary fibrosis, and emphysema to name a few. You can find out more about which disease can be treated at one of the facilities here. The location of a treatment facility is often an issue for many patients. However, there are multiple Lung Institute facilities throughout the nation such as Tampa, Nashville, Scottsdale, Pittsburgh, and Dallas. Visit the lunginstitute website for more details.

Brazilian Advertising Executive José Borghi Knows Brazil Is One Of The Most Emotional Regions in The World

There are several hidden worlds within the borders of Brazil. Some of those worlds are filled with parties and celebrations, and other worlds are emotional powder kegs waiting to explode at the drop of a hat. Brazil is a minefield of human emotions. That’s why the Brazilian advertising industry is so successful. Ad agencies play on people’s emotions to sell products and services. Brazilians are extremely passionate about football, and they are very sensitive and responsive when it comes to the ads they see and hear. The reason for that sensitivity and responsiveness is Brazilian ads cross the threshold storytelling, and they dive deep into the human psyche. Ad agencies are the diving boards that jettison great storytellers, poets, and artists into the pool of idiosyncrasies, and advertising professional land in the liquidity of human frailty. José Borghi is one of those professionals. Borghi has been called one of the great storytellers in the advertising business for the last 20 years.

Borghi was bitten by the advertising bug before he went to college to study the art of advertising. After graduating from PUC-Campinas in 1989, he went to work for Standard Ogilvy. But José got a real baptism in the ad industry when he went to work for the Leo Burnett Agency. José was exposed to several big name companies at Leo Burnett, and he rose to the challenge. Eventually, Borghi was named president. His reputation for being an effective leader and outstanding ad creator spread around the industry. Borghi left Leo Burnett and started his own ad agency, but he was approached by another top advertising executive, Erh Ray, and they decided to join forces. Ray and Borghi had some very successful ad campaigns. Those campaigns helped automobile companies and tech companies sell more products and services. It didn’t take long for the BorghiErh Creative Intelligence Agency to rise to the top of the Brazilian ad market.

The Lowe Network liked what the BorghiErh Creative Intelligence Agency was doing, so a merger was put together. The Borghi/Lowe Group was formed, and almost immediately, the client list exploded. The Borghi/Lowe Group got the attention of the Mullen Group. The Mullen Group is an international advertising and media company. Merging with the Mullen Group was a dream come true for Borghi. He was named co-CEO of the new Mullen Lowe Brazil Group, and he began to live his dream. That dream was being part of an international advertising agency with hundreds of talented employees and offices around the world.

Rappers that were real life gangsters – Tupac Shakur

Tupac Shakur is well known for his rapper fashion, and was born into a family of black radical activists. His stepfather, Mutulu, was a fugitive for much of Tupac’s childhood for helping Tupac’s aunt, Assata Shakur, escape justice. Assata Shakur is best known for her involvement in the killing of a New Jersey state trooper, among other crimes, then fleeing to Cuba. Mutulu himself was later convicted of murder and imprisoned for 60 years.

Despite being raised in such a violent environment, Shakur managed to mostly stay out of major legal trouble until he was well into his 20s. In 1992, he was implicated in the accidental shooting death of a six year old boy, for which he later paid a large out-of-court settlement.

 

The following year he narrowly avoided being hit with felonious assault charges after he beat down a rival rapper with a baseball bat. Later that year, he was involved in a shootout with off duty detectives in Atlanta where he again escaped being charged.

 

In 1994, he ended up in jail for badly beating the producer of Menace II Society. Later in the year, he was attacked while at a recording studio and shot five times in an apparent robbery attempt. In 1995, while still recovering from his gunshot wounds, he was sent to prison for an earlier rape charge.

 

On September 7, 1996, Shakur was involved in an altercation at a Las Vegas casino. Crip member Orlando Anderson was badly beaten by Shakur and Suge Knight. Later that night, Tupac Shakur was shot 4 times at a Las Vegas intersection. He died 6 days later of his wounds.  Unfortunately he joins a very long list of dead rappers.

Taking a Business Conference Camping

Camping has always been regarded as a great way to get a group of people motivated and out of their rut, but now an annual business conference is trying to apply this common wisdom to entrepreneurship. The conference is called CAMP and it takes 150 young business people out into the wooded mountains of Big Bear, California. Conference creator Sonja Rasula was inspired to host this event as a way to break away from the usual business conferences, which can seem very repetitive.

The conference has regularly sold out since 2014, and it hosts a wide variety of speakers and attendees. According to Entrepreneur Magazine, the conference is attended by fashion, web, and start-up professionals.

CAMP reaches for a throw-back summer camp experience. Aside from the included yoga, ropes-course, and bunk bed experiences, part of the draw seems to be the no-phone policy. Attendees have to wait to update their social media on the experience until after it is completed.

CAMP is advertised as a way to get professionals thinking and doing outside their comfort zones. But the childhood throw-back theme might seem just the opposite. Many entrepreneurs are known for having truly adventurous outdoor hobbies. While CAMP does provide disruption to the work-a-day word, it is a curated and plotted experience like many other business conferences. It may be awhile before the camping world sees the likes of a white water rafting business conference, or a conference in the wilds of Patagonia.

 

Christmas Trees by Helicopter

Having a real Christmas tree continues to be a holiday tradition. This means that millions of real Christmas trees must be raised and harvested. People want the real smell, and feel that reminds them of their childhood. Some people also believe that artificial trees have a greater impact on the environment than real ones, making live trees the best option.

 

According to a recent Huffington Post story, some of our Christmas trees are harvested via helicopter. Oregon is home to the biggest Christmas tree farm in the United States. The farm provides millions of trees, which are harvested by helicopter. The trees are chopped down manually, and then flown out in a container attached to the bottom or a helicopter.

 

Just as cattle are transported and rescued via helicopter, so, too, are Christmas trees. Unlike cattle, however, more than one Christmas tree can be carried by helicopter at once. Both the tree in your living room and the beef in your dining room might have been transported by helicopter before they made it to your house.

 

Harvesting a tree by helicopter is a far cry from the traditional trek into the woods to harvest the family Christmas tree, but it does preserve the tradition of having a live tree for the holiday. Thanks to these extreme measures, millions of Americans will have a little bit of the outdoors in their homes this holiday season.

 

 

A Standing Stone Formation In The Amazon Jungle Is Drawing Comparisons To Stonehenge

An amazing formation of large stones that are protruding out of the ground at unusual angles in Brazil, is attracting a lot of attention around the world. In a recent online article that I just read, the author explores the strange arrangement of stones that are estimated to be approximately 1,000 years old.

 

The similarities between the Stonehenge stone circle in England and the Brazilian formation are striking. Both sites are prehistoric in age, and feature circular formations of large stones that jut out from the ground.

 

The stone circle in Brazil is located in northern Brazil, near the Equator, in the remote state of Amapa. Known as the Rego Grande site, this location has been the focus of archaeological studies for a decade now.

 

According to the article, a man that worked as the foreman at a cattle ranch was cutting down trees when he discovered the mysterious arrangement of stones.

 

Specialists in the science of archaeoastronomy were called in to perform measurements and radiocarbon testing at the site, to determine the origin of the phenomenon. The experts have determined that the large stones were most likely arranged by a prehistoric indigenous culture.

 

While I am indeed impressed by the historical value of the Amazonian stone circle, I can’t help but wonder if some would-be entrepreneurs will try commercialize the site. It sounds like this site could be a major tourist attraction. Hopefully, it won’t be cheapened by the addition of nearby stores, motels, restaurants, bars, and shopping malls.

 

 

Enjoy Wine Outdoors

Many people enjoy wine. However, many people mistakenly believe wine is something to be consumed only indoors. Too manky folks have been tainted by the sight of beautiful people sipping wine at a dinning room table. Thankfully, it doesn’t have to be this way. Wine is a terrific beverage to enjoy outdoors. However, you need to remember these two things to make sure it is done right.

 

First, remember you will need to transport wine glasses. This means some of your fancier wine glasses should stay at home. Instead, decide to use some attractive wine glasses sturdy enough to run through a dishwasher. However, don’t stoop so low as to use plastic wine glasses. These flimsy glasses sometimes break at the top of the stem. Nothing can ruin a glass of wine quicker than a busted wine glass.

 

Second, wines consumed far away from traditional kitchens should be easily replaceable. This does not mean the wine should be cheap or inferior. However, it does mean a catastrophe with the wine bottle will not leave you heartbroken. Wine bottles that are sentimental or extremely old should be treated with care closer to the modern kitchen. Outdoor wine should be able to withstand the occasional hiccups of an outdoor meal.

 

Of course, you will also need to remember a cooler and a corkscrew! You’ll want to be able to open your wine and enjoy it at the proper temperature. Have you ever taken a bottle of wine outdoors? Let us know how it went below!
