There’s no denying that as aesthetic medicine has advanced into the mainstream by opening new markets and broadening the realistic potential base, patients have begun to demand better results, less discomfort, decreased risk and less downtime with the aesthetic procedures they choose to peruse.
Once again, triple-digit temperatures surround us and the hotter we get, the thirstier we feel. “Don’t get dehydrated” is as commonly heard here in Arizona as “it’s a dry heat” so everywhere you go you see people with their water bottles. Which is a good thing, don’t get me wrong. But just like most things that are good for us, did you know that too much water could turn into a bad thing? Over-hydration is as potentially a life-threatening situation as is under-hydration. Now the average Joe or Jane is not risking anything as they down their requisite number of ounces of water during the day. It’s the athletes attempting to maintain their work-out regimens in the heat of the day that are a concern, or workers required to carry out their duties in the heat of the day. Well intentioned as it may be, as these individuals attempt to avoid dehydration, they may in fact end up drinking too much water and slip into over-hydration. Too much water could be considered a poison. No kidding; it does happen.
The more evidence pours in that their dire warnings are doubtful, the louder environmental scare mongers insist that the “science is settled.” “We should not allow a tiny minority of shoddy scientists and extreme ideologues to compete with scientific facts,” Secretary of State John Kerry said. “The science is unequivocal.” Barack Obama agreed that “the debate is settled.”
There have been many articles about Global Warming, carbon cap and trade, and sequestration of carbon dioxide. When writing about Global Warming they always indicate that its main cause is CO2 in the atmosphere, but CO2 has a Specific Gravity of 1.4, meaning that it is heavier than air, so can’t be found in the atmosphere. This is a ground hugging gas, that has positive qualities, as when it and rainwater impinge on plant life photosynthesis happens, causing plant life to emit oxygen.
Recently deciding to collaborate with Canon in a Digital University partnership is just one of the steps Arizona State University is taking to maintain its goals to achieve higher sustainability. Implementing “Sustainable Printing” has decreased its number of printers by 32 percent, but is still easily accessible for students.
Arizona State University (ASU) has been recognized for its cutting-edge work in promoting environmental sustainability by the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment (ACUPCC), an agreement between nearly 700 colleges and universities to promote sustainability through teaching and action.
I recently acquired a new scale in my office to check patients'
weights. The cool thing about this scale is that it not only
detects percent of body fat, it also detects percent of body water
(it also tells us how many pounds are bone mass, how many pounds
are muscle mass, the caloric need to maintain that physiology and a
few other tidbits).
