Help Rwandan Women Fight Breast Cancer

A lack of early detection and comprehensive treatment options is putting the women of Rwanda at even higher risk of dying from breast cancer. Breast cancer cases in women living in this impoverished country have increased by more than 50% in the last three years.

Help women in Rwanda

Stop Price Hikes

Americans pay more for prescription drugs than any other nation in the world. Why? Profit. Tell the Department of Health and Human Services to enact legislation to change our out-of-control drug prices. We shouldn’t be expected to pad the pockets of wealthy pharmaceutical executives.

Take Action! Sign the Petition!

Save A Sengalese Woman’s Life

In the developing world, cancer kills more people than malaria, AIDS/HIV, and tuberculosis combined. Cervical cancer is a leading cause of cancer related deaths among women in the developing world. The majority of women living in impoverished countries do not have access to life saving radiation treatment. Thankfully, a group of radiation oncologists from the United States have come together, treating and even curing women of cervical cancer in Senegal.
Donations through this Gift That Gives More provide radiation treatment for a women with cervical cancer. Thank you!

Rightsizing Your Help Desk Team: Part 3 #phd #help #desk

#

Rightsizing Your Help Desk Team: Part 3

Having too big of a help desk team drives up costs, while too small a team will decrease efficiency and profitability. To find the right balance in your organization, a number of factors need to be considered. The standard ratio, for enterprises with a single operating system across the network and hardware standards, is about 70:1 employees per help desk professional. When this ratio is decreased, a larger help desk team is needed, driving up IT costs.

No industry-wide standard is available for an appropriately sized help desk team. Gartner, a technology research company, has derived a formula for companies to use in calculating an ideal number. By starting with a Mean Index Value, ratios can be added to or subtracted from. The elements for each calculation can yield a ratio as low as 7:1, very costly, or as high as 135:1. A number of factors go into deciding upon the actual ratio. The higher it is, the more cost that goes into hiring IT help desk staff.

Lack of Hardware Standards

A lack of hardware standards in you organization means there are different types of computers, servers, and other system doing the same thing. The problem is each type runs slightly differently and presents its own issues. Sometimes there are conflicts within the network, forcing IT staff to create new policies and perform a higher rate of troubleshooting. The same goes for having more than one operating system. A lack of centralized policies for these means the team will be busy and the ratio of employees to each member will be low.

Downtime is another side effect of a lack of standards. Sudden outages in the network create conflict between departments and also means scheduled work and appointments such as teleconferences are disrupted. Productivity suffers and, in addition to the need for more support personnel, profit-enhancing activities are delayed.

Additional Impacts on Ratio

  • User Control – The needs for additional help desk personnel tend to increase by 15:1 when users have administrative control. Troubleshooting is required when a user has questions or misunderstands something, while mistakes and glitches are ultimately on the hands of the support team to resolve. There is also the chance of an employee performing a task that does not adhere to company policies. The IT staff, therefore, must look for issues to resolve and act as a watchdog to be sure company policies are followed. Similar effects are seen when users have unrestricted access to making changes on their PC.
  • Location of Users – If all system users are not within walking distance, then a larger help desk team is needed to support the geographic coverage. It is more challenging to keep up with technical issues if employees are dispersed in different locations. Also, administration may not be as tight, so the burden on IT is greater. A subtraction of 10:1 from the Mean Index Value is recommended.
  • User Software Testing – Testing software in a lab setting centralizes these efforts, requiring just a handful of technicians to handle the task. If users have the ability to test software on their desktops, your organization must find a way to support them. The only way to do this is to add help desk personnel; subtracting 15:1 on the ratio will give you an approximate number needed. Having individual users test new software inherently invites problems and the need to pay for additional IT staff.

Considering whether these factors apply to your enterprise ultimately affects the cost of operations. You can also use these to plan the structure of your organization. The planning stage should include an estimate on the ratio of how many IT team members are needed for each employee. Cost can be adjusted by adding or subtracting to this number, for finding the most cost-effective solution.

For help desk feedback, what – s the best Yes #help

#

I’ve seen various questions proposed for soliciting feedback on incident resolution. Examples include:

  1. Did we fix your issue?
  2. Were you happy with the service we provided?
  3. Did this resolution help?

In the context of Help Desk feedback, which probably provides the best indicator of overall quality of service?

I would tend toward #1, but that is partially answered by how often users re-open the ticket (using a ticket survey makes this more reliably though, because this helps avoid them creating duplicate requests for an unsolved issue).

Number 2 is a good overall happiness metric, since few users will be pleased by a wrong answer, and a right answer delivered unpleasantly is still something that needs to be addressed.

The last covers the common cases where you direct users to the correct department (IT can’t fix your payroll issue, but HR can at x123). It was helpful, but did not fix their problem. But it also seems a wishy-washy question.

Can someone point me to any literature on the subject of one-question Help Desk metrics?

asked Mar 12 ’15 at 18:33

I think the question you may ask yourself is does a closed-ended question provide you with the information you are wanting to know. The options you are presenting are YES and NO.

Often the answers aren’t so black and white. YES my issue was fixed, but not another issue that I had at the time. NO my issue wasn’t fixed because after it was “resolved” it happened again.

You may want to ask more open-ended questions to allow the respondent to give those details that could be important to you. A great video you may want to watch on YouTube from UX Mastery is Better User Research Through Surveys. If you are looking for literature on the subject they also have books. I’m not affiliated with them, but I have personally used their books and videos before.

answered Jul 23 ’15 at 18:09

To clarify the question, you’re asking what follow-up is best for a user who has now received an answer to a question.

The tone depends on the general tone of your company, website, etc, but doesn’t have to. If it’s playful, then the question should follow suit. If not, it still can be playful. Ultimately you’re looking for feedback, so the question is “what question promotes the highest chance for honest feedback after the user has attempted to have a question answered?”

In my experience that has always been a yes/no or number-rated question, meaning:

  • Did you get the answer you were looking for? Yes/No (with followup on no with “why” text input
  • How close were we to answering your question? 1-10, where 10 is a perfect answer and 1 is that we didn’t answer it at all.

Sadly I don’t have any literature on the subject. However, we are currently A/B testing this ourselves, and have found that people who do answer are more willing to do so when the question is phrased more relateably (more playfully) and with the simplest options (aka a Yes/No dropdown is two clicks vs. a 1-10 selector, which is 1 click) always winning out.

answered Apr 24 ’15 at 3:06

Thank you for your input. But if I may, why is yes/no two clicks? We use a yes/no where the choice is the submit button, so literally one click. Myrddin Emrys Apr 24 ’15 at 12:22

That s fine. If it s a dropdown with 2 clicks, then it s worse. But I think of it this way: if the physical cost is light, people are generally willing to put in the slightest additional cognitive cost for free. So take advantage of that. Jamezrp Apr 24 ’15 at 16:12

Just to add, I know the examples you provided were just shorthand quick examples but make sure in implementation you avoid shifting the blame onto the user.

Did we fix your issue?

If I were using an application and something went wrong due to an overloaded backend, poorly implemented code, or incompetency of an employee and I was forced to put in a helpdesk ticket to get my problem resolved, I would likely take it as an affront if I was responded to with “Did we fix your issue?”. It was the applications issue, not mine. I may be nitpicking but I know plenty of people in the heat of frustration from it not working in the first place that would take offence to such a response.

    Hello Crossnet, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    If you mean that you do not have the Pin to taskbar option in the context menu, then this is usually caused by using a XP method to remove the shortcut arrow icon instead of the proper Vista and Windows 7 method. If this may be the case, then try restoring the default shortcut arrow overlay icon using either method in the tutorial below, then see if you have the Pin to taskbar option afterwards.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Moving pinned programs to the right of the taskbar
    Hello, Hopefully i’m posting at the right section. But I wanted to know if it is possible to make your pinned programs be at the right of the taskbar. So lets say you open a new program right now it comes to the right of the pinned programs right? Is it possible to move the pinned programs.

    Taskbar – Separate Pinned Programs
    How to Sort Pinned Programs into Categories on the Taskbar This is similar to how to pin folders to the taskbar, but my own ‘tweaked’ way of doing it with programs Example: Here is my version of the program sorting: Update- You can do this to make Shutdown/Restart buttons as well.

    Programs pinned to taskbar, loose their Icon
    I have Windows 7 RC installed on two different computers and this has happened on both. I’ll install a program I use a lot, pin it to the taskbar and some of the icons will lose their original icon after awhile. It doesn’t seem to effect the operation of the program or the shortcut to the.

    Can’t Switch Programs On Screen Via Programs Pinned to Taskbar
    An example: I open Firefox full-screen. If I try to switch to Outlook, which is open and showing in the taskbar, it wont let me. I am forced to minimize Firefox Same thing happens when Outlook is full screen.

    Odd problem with pinned programs on taskbar
    I seem to be having a problem with the pinned programs on my taskbar and I was wondering if anybody can help me here. Most of the programs on my taskbar simply highlight the icon that I clicked when I want to start the program or start a new instance of the program. However, a select few programs.

    Problem with right click on programs pinned to taskbar.
    Hello. I hope I’m in the good section for my post. When I right click on Windows Media Player on the taskbar, the recent files and task lists appears, but don’t work. when I click on a file or a task, nothing happen :(. However, it worked at the beginning (just after Windows installation).

    Options to Respond #self #help, #california, #ca #divorce #forms, #divorce, #divorce

    #

    Options to Respond

    If you have been served with a summons and a petition, you are the respondent in a court case for divorce or legal separation.

    When you are served, read the papers you have received carefully. The Petition (Form FL-100 ) tells you what the petitioner (your spouse or domestic partner) is asking for. The Summons (Family Law) (Form FL-110 ) gives you important information about your rights and the divorce or separation process. It contains some standard restraining orders limiting what you can do with your property, money, and other assets or debts. It also prohibits you or your spouse or partner from moving out of state with your children from your marriage or partnership, and from applying for a new or replacement passport for any of your children together, without the prior written consent of the other or a court order. READ this form carefully!!

    Once you are served, you have several options:

    1. You can do nothing — which means that whatever your spouse or domestic partner is asking for in the Petition will probably be granted. The judge will base his or her decision about property, support, and custody and visitation (if you have children together) only on what your spouse or domestic partner has requested in the Petition.
    • This situation is called a “true default” because you are “defaulting” by not responding and are not involved at all.
    • In a “true default” you are giving up your right to participate in the case.
    • Click to learn more about default or uncontested cases .
  • You can do nothing because you have a written notarized agreement with your spouse or domestic partner where you both agree to end your marriage or domestic partnership. And you agree about other things like the division of your property and your debt, spousal or partner support, and, if you have children together, child support and custody and visitation orders.
    • In this case, you also “default” because you are not filing a response.
    • BUT you are having a say in the final outcome because you are reaching a written agreement with your spouse or domestic partner. So this is a “default with agreement” case.
    • Click to learn more about default or uncontested cases
  • You file a response with the court but also reach an agreement with your spouse or domestic partner about all the issues.
    • If you choose this option, it is considered an “uncontested” case because you and your spouse or domestic partner are not fighting over the issues. You are agreeing to the terms of your divorce or legal separation.
    • Click to learn more about default or uncontested cases
  • You file a response with the court in which you disagree with what your spouse or domestic partner is asking for.
    • This situation is considered a “contested” case since you and your spouse or domestic partner do not have an agreement and will need the court to make decisions in your case.
    • Click to find out what to do in a “contested” case .
  • If you decide to file a response, you have 30 days from the date you were served with the Summons and Petition to respond.

    Note: You may be able to get help paying for a lawyer in certain situations. To learn more, read Asking for Lawyer’s Fees and Costs in Family Law Cases .

    California Drug Treatment Programs

    California Drug Alcohol Abuse Prevention

    California’s goal for Substance Abuse Prevention is to develop and maintain a comprehensive, statewide prevention system that reduces alcohol and other drug related problems in order to improve the health, safety and economic conditions for all California residents.

    The impact of drug and alcohol addiction doesn’t just affect the individuals suffering with addiction and dependency, it affects the whole community. Drugs like marijuana, methamphetamines, heroin, and cocaine are smuggled into California from Mexico which adds to the drug situation throughout California. Drug education and prevention is crucial concerning the risks, dangers and crime associated with drug trafficking, drug abuse and prescription drug misuse.

    California Cocaine Addiction

    The availability of cocaine is high throughout the state of California. There are other areas of California where cocaine is easily found; in San Francisco and certain areas of northern California cocaine is also easily obtained. Los Angeles is one of the nation’s biggest cocaine transshipment and distribution centers.

    Cocaine is a very powerful illegal stimulant that causes serious health problems when used. Another form of cocaine that’s highly abused is crack cocaine. Crack cocaine is processed from cocaine for the purpose of inhaling the toxic vapors when smoking it. This form of cocaine is also referred to as rock crystal. When the rock crystal is heated it makes a crackle sound which is where it gets its name from.

    Cocaine is abused by many people because it creates an intense feeling of euphoria when used as well as increased energy and the user feels sharp and alert. Smoking crack cocaine is preferred by many users but because of the short lived high, use needs to be repeated. Unfortunately cocaine is highly addictive and causes very serious health problems when used.

    California Heroin Addiction

    Heroin is a problem because this drug is widely available with high purity levels. Because it’s so pure young people especially new users snort heroin and according to specialists they ingest high amounts and become addicted much faster. Heroin is an opiate that’s made from morphine. Users inject heroin, snort it, or smoke it for the purpose of getting high. Individuals that use heroin can form tolerance to this drug easily and in a short period of time need to increase the amount they use in order to experience the same effects. Heroin addiction is very widespread throughout California and the United States and comes with serious health risks.

    California Marijuana Addiction

    In California as well as most states, marijuana is the most available and abused illegal drug by people of all ages. Marijuana is smuggled in from Mexico in vast low grade quantities. The high grade marijuana which is much more potent is smuggled into California from Canada. The Canadian potent marijuana is referred to as BC bud. Throughout California potent marijuana is produced in domestic indoor hydroponic gardens as well.

    Most marijuana users prefer to smoke it by rolling it into a ‘joint’ or ‘nail’ or smoking it through a pipe although there are people who smoke marijuana through a water pipe called a ‘bong’. It’s not uncommon for some marijuana users to mix it in different foods, drinks or brew it similar to tea.

    California Methamphetamine Addiction

    Meth is the biggest drug threat in California. The production and distribution of high quality methamphetamines in California is controlled by Mexican Drug Trafficking Organizations. There is another secondary drug trafficking group that is responsible for some of the meth production and distribution which consists of Caucasians for the most part. This secondary group operates much less sophisticated small labs.

    Clandestine meth labs are usually found in less populated rural areas, remote desert locations and forested areas in northern California. The amount of seized meth labs in California has decreased but there has been an increase in meth labs south of the border in Mexico.

    Meth is an addictive central nervous system stimulant that’s structured in a similar way to amphetamines. Methamphetamines are abused for the purpose of getting high by many people and as a result, many people have formed dependency and are in need of treatment. In order to experience the intense high meth produces, the individual either smokes, snorts, or injects it. There are many serious health problems associated with methamphetamine abuse .

    California Club Drugs

    The use of Ecstasy (MDMA) is showing signs of decrease in use throughout California; ecstasy was once viewed as the most popular club drug among teens and young adults. It’s still consistently available in certain areas though. The decrease is partially due to law enforcement cracking down on the individuals that promote raves in the county area of San Diego and putting a stop to these all night parties. Part of the selling and distribution of ecstasy took place during raves which made a big difference once they were unable to hold their events.

    California Prescription Drug Misuse and Abuse

    The misuse of prescription drugs is increasing throughout California for non-medical reasons and is a definite cause for concern. Unfortunately the misuse of prescription drugs comes with many serious health risks and medical problems. When prescription drugs are taken in high doses as well as repeated misuse, tolerance and dependency are inevitable.

    Prescription pain killers, CNS depressants used to treat anxiety and sleep disorders, and stimulants for the treatment of ADHD are commonly abused not only in California but throughout the nation. Many young people and young adults misuse prescription drugs for the purpose of getting high and have developed dependency to them. Health risks and dangers associated with prescription drug abuse are very serious and sometimes life threatening.

    California Binge Drinking Alcoholism

    Around 5.8 million adults in California are binge drinkers; this is about 21 percent of all adults. The definition of binge drinking would be 5 or more drinks for men and 4 or more drinks for women taking place on the same occasion at least once during the past month. There are over 2.2 million Californians who meet the criteria for alcohol dependence or abuse .

    Combining illegal drugs, prescription drugs or over the counter medications is extremely dangerous and isn’t taken serious enough. Sometimes mixing alcohol and other substances is done unintentionally, older adults sometimes without thinking combine alcohol with acetaminophen (Tylenol) and this comes with serious health risks. If a person has more than 3 drinks a day and mixes them with acetaminophen they risk liver damage.

    Mixing antidepressants with alcohol is very serious because it causes depression to become worse. Antidepressants like Wellbutrin, Elavil, and Prozac should never be combined with any alcoholic beverage no matter what it is. It’s very important not to mix sedatives like Valium with alcohol, this combination can be lethal.

    Creating S.M.A.R.T. Goals

    Specific: A specific goal has a much greater chance of being accomplished than a general goal. To set a specific goal you must answer the six W questions:

    *Who: Who is involved?

    *What: What do I want to accomplish?

    *Where: Identify a location.

    *When: Establish a time frame.

    *Which: Identify requirements and constraints.

    *Why: Specific reasons, purpose or benefits of accomplishing the goal.

    EXAMPLE: A general goal would be, Get in shape. But a specific goal would say, Join a health club and workout 3 days a week.

    Measurable – Establish concrete criteria for measuring progress toward the attainment of each goal you set.

    When you measure your progress, you stay on track, reach your target dates, and experience the exhilaration of achievement that spurs you on to continued effort required to reach your goal.

    To determine if your goal is measurable, ask questions such as

    How much? How many?

    How will I know when it is accomplished?

    Attainable When you identify goals that are most important to you, you begin to figure out ways you can make them come true. You develop the attitudes, abilities, skills, and financial capacity to reach them. You begin seeing previously overlooked opportunities to bring yourself closer to the achievement of your goals.

    You can attain most any goal you set when you plan your steps wisely and establish a time frame that allows you to carry out those steps. Goals that may have seemed far away and out of reach eventually move closer and become attainable, not because your goals shrink, but because you grow and expand to match them. When you list your goals you build your self-image. You see yourself as worthy of these goals, and develop the traits and personality that allow you to possess them.

    Realistic – To be realistic, a goal must represent an objective toward which you are both willing and able to work. A goal can be both high and realistic; you are the only one who can decide just how high your goal should be. But be sure that every goal represents substantial progress.

    A high goal is frequently easier to reach than a low one because a low goal exerts low motivational force. Some of the hardest jobs you ever accomplished actually seem easy simply because they were a labor of love.

    Timely A goal should be grounded within a time frame. With no time frame tied to it there s no sense of urgency. If you want to lose 10 lbs, when do you want to lose it by? Someday won t work. But if you anchor it within a timeframe, by May 1st , then you ve set your unconscious mind into motion to begin working on the goal.
    Your goal is probably realistic if you truly believe that it can be accomplished. Additional ways to know if your goal is realistic is to determine if you have accomplished anything similar in the past or ask yourself what conditions would have to exist to accomplish this goal.

    T can also stand for Tangible A goal is tangible when you can experience it with one of the senses, that is, taste, touch, smell, sight or hearing.

    When your goal is tangible you have a better chance of making it specific and measurable and thus attainable.

    Opera – Free download and software reviews – CNET, opera help

    Opera help deskOpera

    Editors’ Review

    Opera shares most of its guts with Google Chrome, but the Web browser distinguishes itself with features like a built-in ad blocker, claims of improved battery life on laptops, and the option to watch YouTube videos in a floating window.

    Supports most Chrome extensions: Since Opera and Chrome have so much code in common, it’s not difficult to create native Opera versions of popular extensions like LastPass, uBlock Origin, Reddit Enhancement Suite, and Pocket. And if a developer hasn’t created an Opera version yet, Download Chrome Extension can install extensions directly from the Chrome Web Store, so Opera users shouldn’t miss out on many Chrome add-ons.

    Saves laptop battery life: Opera does some clever wizardry in the background to extend battery life on a laptop. We can’t guarantee any particular number, because battery life depends a lot on your screen’s brightness and resolution, and whether you’re streaming HD videos or just browsing Wikipedia. Either way, enabling or disabling power saving is a quick toggle at the top of your screen.

    Handy YouTube video pop-outs: When you browse YouTube with Opera, you can click an additional button in the top of the video frame to pop the video out to a separate window. You can drag it around and resize it, and it will float on top of other windows. That is, it won’t disappear if you put another app window in the foreground, so you can multitask without losing your video. The original browser tab where you found that video must remain open, though.

    Default security and privacy settings could be better: Opera Software routinely advertises its browser as a “safe” option. However, it uses navigation prediction services that require sending (anonymized) data about your usage habits over the Internet to be analyzed by a remote server. This can be disabled, but it’s not by default, and you have to search Google to figure out how these services work and what they expose. Form autofilling is also enabled by default — another feature that favors convenience over safety. If an unauthorized person gets access to your device, they can pull up what you’ve entered into a form just by experimenting with the alphabet, potentially giving them your home address, phone number, and other sensitive info. Opera also has a setting to “protect me from malicious sites,” but the setting doesn’t explain what this entails.

    Searching for extensions is hit-or-miss: We got some odd search results on Opera’s website when looking for extensions to install. Searching for Gmail produced two pages of extensions, which was good. But searching for Google produces only six extensions, none of which are Gmail. Why does a more generic query return a fraction of the results and exclude an obvious ingredient?

    Installing Adobe Flash is relatively tricky: Adobe’s once-universal Internet streaming video tech is finally on its way out, but many legacy websites still require it. Unlike Chrome, Opera does not have Adobe Flash built in. Googling for ways to add it produces outdated instructions from Adobe and Opera Software about enabling a setting that no longer exists. You have to go to the Adobe Flash plug-in webpage (once you’ve Googled it) while using Opera; the website uses its own voodoo to determine which Flash installer to deliver to you. But you won’t see the download button if you have an ad blocker enabled.

    Bottom Line

    Since Opera is basically Chrome’s fraternal twin, if it wants to compete with Chrome, it has to be better, and that’s a hard act to follow. However, Opera’s benefit to battery life is one point in its favor — Chrome has a reputation for inefficient battery use. And some users will appreciate the video pop-out. Since you can get all the major Chrome extensions without much fuss, it’s hard to make a case against Opera. It’s definitely a worthy Web browser in its own right and might make Google reconsider some of its decisions on Chrome.

    Alcohol Withdrawal: Symptoms, Treatments, Duration, and More #alcohol #withdrawal, #alcohol #withdrawal

    #

    Alcohol Withdrawal

    Alcohol withdrawal syndrome is a potentially life-threatening condition that can occur in people who have been drinking heavily for weeks, months, or years and then either stop or significantly reduce their alcohol consumption.

    Alcohol withdrawal symptoms can begin as early as two hours after the last drink, persist for weeks, and range from mild anxiety and shakiness to severe complications, such as seizures and delirium tremens (also called DTs). The death rate from DTs — which are characterized by confusion, rapid heartbeat, and fever — is estimated to range from 1% to 5%.

    Because alcohol withdrawal symptoms can rapidly worsen, it’s important to seek medical attention even if symptoms are seemingly mild. Appropriate alcohol withdrawal treatments can reduce the risk of developing withdrawal seizures or DTs.

    It’s especially important to see a doctor if you’ve experienced previous alcohol withdrawal episodes or if you have other health conditions such as infections, heart disease. lung disease. or a history of seizures.

    Severe alcohol withdrawal symptoms are a medical emergency. If seizures, fever, severe confusion, hallucinations. or irregular heartbeats occur, either take the patient to an emergency room or call 911.

    Causes of Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome

    Heavy, prolonged drinking — especially excessive daily drinking — disrupts the brain ‘s neurotransmitters, the brain chemicals that transmit messages.

    For example, alcohol initially enhances the effect of GABA, the neurotransmitter which produces feelings of relaxation and calm. But chronic alcohol consumption eventually suppresses GABA activity so that more and more alcohol is required to produce the desired effects, a phenomenon known as tolerance.

    Chronic alcohol consumption also suppresses the activity of glutamate, the neurotransmitter which produces feelings of excitability. To maintain equilibrium, the glutamate system responds by functioning at a far higher level than it does in moderate drinkers and nondrinkers.

    When heavy drinkers suddenly stop or significantly reduce their alcohol consumption, the neurotransmitters previously suppressed by alcohol are no longer suppressed. They rebound, resulting in a phenomenon known as brain hyperexcitability. So, the effects associated with alcohol withdrawal — anxiety. irritability, agitation, tremors, seizures, and DTs — are the opposite of those associated with alcohol consumption.

    Continued

    Symptoms of Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome

    In general, how severe alcohol withdrawal symptoms become depends on how much and for how long a person has been drinking.

    Minor alcohol withdrawal symptoms often appear 6 to 12 hours after a person stops drinking. Sometimes a person will still have a measurable blood alcohol level when symptoms start. These symptoms include:

    Between 12 and 24 hours after they stop drinking, some patients may experience visual, auditory, or tactile hallucinations. These usually end within 48 hours. Although this condition is called alcoholic hallucinosis, it’s not the same as the hallucinations associated with DTs. Most patients are aware that the unusual sensations aren’t real.

    Withdrawal seizures usually first strike between 24 and 48 hours after someone stops drinking, although they can appear as early as 2 hours after drinking stops. The risk of seizures is especially high in patients who previously have undergone multiple detoxifications.

    DTs usually begin between 48 and 72 hours after drinking has stopped, Risk factors for DTs include a history of withdrawal seizures or DTs, acute medical illness, abnormal liver function, and older age.

    Symptoms of DTs, which usually peak at 5 days, include:

    • Disorientation, confusion, and severe anxiety
    • Hallucinations (primarily visual) which cannot be distinguished from reality
    • Profuse sweating
    • Seizures
    • High blood pressure
    • Racing and irregular heartbeat
    • Severe tremors
    • Low-grade fever

    Assessment of Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome

    If alcohol withdrawal syndrome is suspected, your doctor will take a complete medical history and ask how much you drink, how long you’ve been drinking, and how much time has elapsed since your last drink. He or she also will want to know if you have a history of alcohol withdrawal, if you abuse any other substances, and if you have any medical or psychiatric conditions.

    During a physical exam. your doctor will identify alcohol withdrawal symptoms and any potential complicating medical conditions such as irregular heartbeats, congestive heart failure. coronary artery disease. gastrointestinal bleeding, infections, liver disease, nervous system impairment, and pancreatitis. He or she also may order blood tests to measure complete blood count. alcohol and electrolyte levels, liver function. and a urine screen to identify drug use.

    The results of the medical history and physical exam will help your doctor decide if you have alcohol withdrawal syndrome and, if so, its severity.

    Continued

    Treatment of Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome

    If you have mild to moderate withdrawal symptoms, your doctor may prefer to treat you in an outpatient setting, especially if you have supportive family and friends. Outpatient detoxification is safe, effective, and less costly than inpatient detoxification at a hospital or other facility.

    However, you may require inpatient treatment if you don’t have a reliable social network, are pregnant. or have a history of any of the following:

    • Severe withdrawal symptoms
    • Withdrawal seizures or DTs
    • Multiple previous detoxifications
    • Certain medical or psychiatric illnesses

    The goals of treatment are threefold: reducing immediate withdrawal symptoms, preventing complications, and beginning long-term therapy to promote alcohol abstinence.

    Prescription drugs of choice include benzodiazepines, such as diazepam (Valium ), chlordiazepoxide (Librium ), lorazepam (Ativan ), and oxazepam (Serax ). Such medications can help control the shakiness, anxiety, and confusion associated with alcohol withdrawal and reduce the risk of withdrawal seizures and DTs. In patients with mild to moderate symptoms, the anticonvulsant drug carbamazepine (Tegretol ) may be an effective alternative to benzodiazepines, because it is not sedating and has low potential for abuse.

    To help manage withdrawal complications, your doctor may consider adding other drugs to a benzodiazepine regimen. These may include:

    • An antipsychotic drug, which can help relieve agitation and hallucinations
    • A beta-blocker, which may help curb a fast heart rate and elevated blood pressure related to withdrawal and reduce the strain of alcohol withdrawal in people with coronary artery disease
    • Clonidine (Catapres ), another blood pressure drug
    • Phenytoin (Dilantin ), an anticonvulsant which doesn’t treat withdrawal seizures but may be useful in people with an underlying seizure disorder

    Preventing Future Alcohol Withdrawal Episodes

    Because successful treatment of alcohol withdrawal syndrome doesn’t address the underlying disease of addiction, it should be followed by treatment for alcohol abuse or alcohol dependence.

    Relatively brief outpatient interventions can be effective for alcohol abuse, but more intensive therapy may be required for alcohol dependence. If you have alcohol dependence, your doctor may prescribe other medications to help you stop drinking. He or she also may recommend joining a 12-step group — such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous — or staying at a comprehensive treatment facility that offers a combination of a 12-step model, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and family therapy.

    Free Tax Help from AARP Foundation Tax-Aide

    The countdown to tax day begins…now! From February 1 through April 16, AARP Foundation Tax-Aide – the nation’s largest, volunteer-run, free tax preparation program – is ready to help taxpayers with basic federal and state income tax returns.

    Available to middle- and low-income taxpayers, with special attention given to those 60 and older, AARP Foundation Tax-Aide provides face-to-face assistance at nearly 250 sites across Massachusetts including senior centers and libraries. Find a site near you .

    Last year, AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteers helped more than 39,000 Massachusetts residents with tax returns and questions. Over and over, the exceptional quality of service provided by these dedicated volunteers earns the program high marks in customer satisfaction.

    AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteers are well-versed in federal and state tax rules, and focused on helping taxpayers identify all the tax credits and deductions for which they may qualify, including:

    • “Circuit Breaker” tax credit which is available for Massachusetts property owners and renters who are age 65 and older and meet certain criteria;
    • Energy Efficiency Credits which may be available to qualifying Bay State residential property owners; and,
    • Schedule HC, proof of health insurance coverage, which is required of all Massachusetts residents.

    “Nobody is more grateful than a senior with low-income who just found us, was expecting to get no money back on his or her return, but gets a refund thanks to the ‘Circuit Breaker’ tax credit,” says Tom Ligon of Wayland, the volunteer state coordinator for AARP Foundation Tax-Aide. This year’s maximum “Circuit Breaker” credit is $1,000; however, an amended return may be filed for up to three years.

    Bottom line: AARP saves you and your family money with AARP Foundation Tax-Aide. And, our volunteers are ready to serve.

    This year, more than 600 AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteers have been trained in conjunction with the Internal Revenue Service and the Massachusetts Department of Revenue.

    If married, both spouses should be present during an income tax counseling session. Taxpayers must have available all information and documents that apply to their 2011 income taxes, including:

    • Proof of identity (picture or other documentation).
    • All income statements that apply to the taxpayers.
    • Social Security number (Social Security card or Benefit Statement-Form SSA-1099) for taxpayer and all dependents.
    • Copy of last year’s federal and state tax returns.
    • Personal check if direct depositing tax refund, with bank checking account and routing numbers.

    AARP Foundation Tax-Aide is administered by the AARP Foundation in cooperation with the Internal Revenue Service. The AARP Foundation is an affiliated, 501(c)(3) nonpartisan, charitable organization established in 1961. To learn more, visit www.aarp.org/taxaide .

    Opiate addiction

    Help with opiate addiction

    Opium Poppy Husks

    Opiates are a class of drug that is derived from the opium poppy, most commonly heroin and many narcotic pain medications which are some of the most addictive and harmful of drugs. There are also synthetic opiates that don’t come from the poppy plant, but which have a similar effect. Many prescription drugs are opiates, including Oxycontin, Percocet, Lorcet, Vicodin, Dilaudid and MSContin. People who abuse heroin or pain medications gradually develop a habit, having to take a certain amount of the drug every day in order to avoid withdrawal symptoms. This habit will intensify over time as more drugs will be needed to maintain the same effect.

    Opiate Withdrawal Symptoms

    The length of time these opiate detox symptoms persist also varies. A small habit may result in a short opiate withdrawal period of 3 or 4 days and only produce a few withdrawal symptoms. Larger habits may cause detox symptoms that last for weeks. The typical opiate withdrawal period is around 7 days, with the most intense symptoms peaking about 72 hours after last use. Because of the length of the physical and psychological withdrawal process, it is extremely difficult for people to get through it without the help of a detox center like Sunrise Detox. Most people will break down after 2 or 3 days and return to using the opiates, and feeding their opiate addiction.

    Some detox centers do not medicate their patients during withdrawal. This unpleasant method is known as “cold turkey” and here at Sunrise Detox, we don’t believe in it. Opiate withdrawal symptoms can produce potentially dangerous health situations including elevation in blood pressure and dehydration. Left untreated, the pain of the withdrawal symptoms can make it psychologically difficult to stay in the detoxification facility and makes the client more likely to leave detox prematurely.

    That said, other opiate detox facilities will overmedicate patients to the point where they are incoherent throughout their stay. They will medicate with large doses of other opiates or methadone for 7 days and discharge the patient with minimal follow-up. Substituting other drugs for the opiates only delays the onset of withdrawal symptoms. The person will leave the program feeling fine, but fall back into full-blown withdrawal as the detox medications wear off.

    At Sunrise Detox, we use a mainly buprenorphine-based medication that effectively manages opiate withdrawal symptoms. This medication allows our clients to remain comfortable and alert during their stay with us. We supplement the buprenorphine with a number of other medications to treat any discomfort that may arise. Buprenorphine also allows the client to leave detox with virtually no withdrawal symptoms. This opiate addiction detox even works with synthetic opiates, like methadone.

    Please scroll down to read what parents say about our college road trip itineraries.

    “A friend who is a maven in finding outstanding resources, recommended Janice and Custom College Visits as we began the daunting college selection process. We worked with Janice on two fronts; to help create a list of colleges and to set-up meaningful colleges visits. The college visits were also a lot of fun for us as a family and very informative on so many levels. More importantly Janice helped make the college selection process manageable, not so daunting after all, and we felt no stone was left unturned in this important decision.

    Tracy P. Parent of a New York City high school Senior

    Thank you so much for planning such a wondrous experience for our son. The careful attention to detail was evident at every turn. Custom College Visits planning effort provided an appropriate path of discovery for our son and for us.

    Michael C. New Jersey parent of a high school Junior

    Hi Janice, Our trip was a thoroughly enjoyable family adventure! Thank you so much for the unique opportunities that you created for our daughter at each college. Meeting with a student at Harvard, was probably the most informative way to start the entire trip. She devoted a lot of time (in the rain) providing real college life details. She swiped us into dining halls, dorms & buildings that we might not have seen otherwise. The sophomore session at Princeton was wonderful! Thank you so much for everything that you did! We really were able to get the most out of each campus visit! Best, Julie

    Julie, Parent of a high school Junior in Southern California

    I found working with Custom College Visits a very positive experience. They were able to pinpoint colleges that were best suited for my daughter and the travel plans were well organized. In addition, they were able to set up an interview with a member of a college color guard, as my daughter had expressed interest in going to a school that had a color guard. I am very pleased with my experience with Custom College Visits, and would recommend them highly.

    Mark L. Parent of high school junior in Northern California

    Lili got accepted into her first choice school today (early decision): Boston University! She is thrilled beyond belief and relieved as well. We could not have done it without your help, it was invaluable. I think the High School Honors program she did there was probably very helpful and we would not have know about it without your forwarding the information to us. You rock! So, I am tipping my hat today to both you and Lili!

    Kim T. Parent of high school senior in Kansas

    I am happy to tell you that Nivi has been accepted early decision to Brown University. She is the first ivy leaguer in our family and we couldn’t be more proud! Her decision to apply was made easier because of the excellent experience she had during her customized tour via your company so thank you so much! We will be sure to recommend you to our friends here..

    Gayathri S. Parent of high school senior Chennai, India

    Thank you again for being so good at what you do. Our trip to the US was a huge success. I was on the verge of cancelling the trip but knew I couldn’t let my son down. That I even found you on the internet was a direct answer to my prayer for a miracle. The itinerary worked very well. I knew I was in good hands even before I boarded the plane to the U.S. and your attention to detail far exceeded my expectation.

    Egbe O. Parent of international high school student

    We had a wonderful trip to Philadelphia and Boston thanks to Janice Caine of Custom College Visits. She worked out an itinerary from start to finish. We visited 9 schools and it was as smooth as possible. Janice worked out tours and information sessions as well as meetings with tennis coaches.We have boy/girl twins and both were happy which is not an easy achievement. Not only did Janice work out the schedule but she recommended great schools in both towns. We would highly recommend her.

    Phil S. Parent of high school students SF Bay Area

    “Thank you SO MUCH for your involvement in the Splash Parents’ Program this weekend! I am just reviewing the feedback forms, and your presentation received rave reviews across the board; many parents cited it as the highlight of the program for them! Some verbatim quotes include: ‘The Planning and Preparing for College Visits was a great eye opener;’ Thank you for all the effort, energy, and enthusiasm you put into making the event such a success.”

    Marisa M. Coordinator, Splash Parents’ Program Stanford University

    Our college process was two-fold. It began with getting a jump start on the standardized testing, and not waiting until spring of junior year to focus. I believe our outcome was successful because we had a well-managed plan helped along by an expert, Janice Caine, of Custom College Visits.

    Lisa L. Parent of high school students SF Bay Area

    Happy New Year! Wanted to let you know that Charlie was accepted to Johns Hopkins Early Decision! Great news and very exciting all around. Thank you for all your help.

    Beth A. Parent of a high school senior. Massachusetts

    Need Help w/ Flight and Hotel Package Understanding

    Currently Being Moderated

    The link above is to the Flight and Hotel packages page on marriott.com.

    I used one of these type packages a long long time ago. At the time, I received 7 nights, 2 roundtrip tix, and 50% off rental car. I forget the total points back then. but somewhere around 120,000.

    My question is for the folks that have used one of these packages, recently. I’m struggling to understand the terms. I’ll use the first option from

    Hotel + Air Package 1:

    It’s listed as 7 nights + 50,000 miles. For a cat. 6 hotel, it has a points total of 230,000.

    Am I reading the offer correctly if I think they’re saying. You get 7 nights at a cat 6 hotel and Marriott will transfer 50,000 points into your Frequent Flyer account?

    If so, does that mean you basically create your own package by using a base of 180,000 points for the hotel and add how ever many FF miles you want added to your FF account? An example of this would be, Two people flying and staying in the Caribbean with USAir FF membership. The MR member checks the miles in their FF account, decides they need 120,000 more to get two free tickets. They would call MR and request a Hotel and Air Package for the 180,000 hotel plus 120,000 for the plane tix..total 300,000.

    Glossary for Property Taxes

    Under the home owner grant, a person with a disability is someone who has a severe mental or physical impairment that, in the opinion of a health professional. is likely to continue for at least 2 years. This impairment directly and significantly restricts the person s ability to perform one or more daily living activities either continuously or periodically for extended periods. In order to perform daily living activities, the person with a disability requires:

    • significant help or supervision of another person, help from an assistive device or the services of an assistance animal, or
    • a qualifying modification to their principal residence or land.

    A principal residence is the usual place that a person makes their home.

    If a person owns more than one home, they can t designate which one is their principal residence. Their principal residence is where they live and conduct their daily affairs, like paying bills and receiving mail, and it s generally the residence used in government records for things like income tax, Medical Services Plan, driver s licence and vehicle registration.

    Our Mission.

    The mission of RCCD Distance Education (formerly Open Campus) is to extend access to learning through distance education. Objectives: To facilitate learning at a distance, Distance Education provides:

    • Educational technology to the colleges, faculty, and students to support the delivery of online-based courses and services
    • Professional development and training for faculty
    • Expertise and experience
    • Blackboard management, production and problem solving.

    As of April 21, the Open Campus department has changed its name to Distance Education. We thank you for your patience as we work to complete the changes to website by the middle of summer.

    What Are Online Based or Distance Education classes?

    Online-based courses, also called Distance Education classes, may take two different forms:

    Online classes are taken exclusively over the Internet. Please note that, while some online courses provide all instructional content over the Internet, others may require some on-campus meetings. Please see the course schedule or WebAdvisor for more information.

    Hybrid classes meet both on campus and online. Think of them as a combination or blending of online classes and face-to-face classes.

    In a hybrid class, you will attend meetings on campus during the dates and times listed in the schedule of classes. Since the on-campus portion of hybrid classes could take place at any of our three colleges (Riverside City, Norco or Moreno Valley), hybrid classes are listed in the schedule by the college where the on-campus meetings will take place.

    Are there Face-to-Face classes that use the Internet?

    Web-Enhanced classes are traditional face-to-face classes that are supplemented with course websites and the use of Internet resources. Unlike hybrid or fully-online classes, all web-enhanced class meetings take place on campus.

    Where Do I Start?

    Need help with drug addiction #need #help #with #drug #addiction

    #

    In this cutting edge publication, a professional substance abuse counsellor talks directly to young people about effects of alcohol and drug use and addresses contemporary trends in youth substance use.

    This outstanding resource is acclaimed by teachers, police services and mental health and addiction counsellors as an effective teaching tool.

    By sponsoring a classroom set of the magazine you are making it possible to put this valuable resource into your community, where educators and young people will receive it for free. You re directly supporting the professionals who work closely with youth in assisting them in making healthy choices.

    Adolescents who are smokers are twice as likely as non-smoking adolescents to suffer from an episode of major depression, and teens with long-term depression are more likely to be smokers than teens without depression.

    Marijuana contains many of the same chemicals found in tobacco smoke. People who smoke marijuana over a long period of time often develop the same breathing problems as smokers do.

    When an energy drink is consumed along with alcohol, the high levels of caffeine in these drinks can boost heart rate and blood pressure.

    Cocaine taken over time and in large doses can cause aggressive, hostile, erratic behaviour, hallucinations, rapid and irregular heartbeat, increased paranoia, impotence and depression.

    Inhalants can lead to brain damage, organ damage or death cause by choking, damage brain cells beyond repair and can lead to permanent abnormalities in thinking, learning and memory.

    Using bath salts can increase the risk of heart attack, kidney failure, liver failure and suicide.

    Doctors say that smoking alcohol increases its addictive qualities, which means that people who repeatedly use alcohol this way will experience powerful cravings and will require higher volume to get the same high.

    Kids who know the facts on drugs make healthier choices

    Involve Your Business!

    By sponsoring a classroom set you are bringing this invaluable and acclaimed resource directly to the kids who need it most free of charge. Make no mistake about it, without the participation of the local business community, this outstanding magazine geared to help kids stay off drugs would not be available to the schools, police services and many counselling agencies who see these kids directly.

    The parents of these children, fearful that their kids are either thinking about trying drugs or already have, want and need this invaluable resource to assist them. By sponsoring a classroom set you are telling the community that YOU CARE.

    Play a part in
    keeping our schools
    and streets drug aware.

    401(k) Participants Turn to Pros For Help Managing Their Money

    You’re a computer engineer, or a nurse, or a graphic designer. Just keeping current in your own specialty is an effort. So what happens to your 401(k) retirement plan while you’re off doing what you do?

    Does it just languish, forgotten, in some dusty corner of your mind? Are you, among millions of others, crossing your fingers and hoping your portfolio will provide?

    Thanks to changes in the industry, investors now can get more help managing their 401(k) accounts. In the past, to prevent conflicts of interest, defined contribution plan providers could make only general asset class recommendations. But regulations now allow financial service companies to hire independent, third-party financial advisers like Ibbotson Associates to manage individual investors’ 401(k) accounts.

    Those who choose professional help will find that the money in their portfolio will be allocated appropriately to funds in their existing plan, rebalanced regularly and adjusted over time to meet changing life circumstances. And these programs are catching on.

    Ibbotson is the independent third-party advisor for 401(k) managed account programs run by AIG VALIC, Fidelity, Great-West Retirement Services, Merrill Lynch, the Principal Financial Group and TIAA-CREF. Although 401(k) managed accounts are only two years old, participation in such programs is increasing rapidly. Currently there is over $10 billion in 401(k) managed account programs, and that number is expected to reach $300 billion in 2010, according to industry research firm TowerGroup.

    A major reason for the growth is that many employees don’t know how to manage their retirement plans. Human resources firm Hewitt Associates found that only 16 percent of 401(k) plan participants made any changes to their accounts in 2004. The study also found that, while some employees were not aggressive enough with their investments, others took on too much risk. For example, participants concentrated about 27 percent of their 401(k) assets in their company stock.

    Germany offers frigate, recon, refueling flights to help France fight Islamic State

    BERLIN – Germany on Thursday offered France Tornado reconnaissance jets, a naval frigate, aerial refueling and satellite images to back the fight against the Islamic State group.

    France was struck to the bone by the horrific attacks by the IS but we know that this inhumane rage can hit us or other societies at any time too, said Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen, announcing the support.

    The offer will have to be formally approved by Chancellor Angela Merkel s Cabinet and supported by parliament, where Merkel s grand coalition has an overwhelming majority.

    In Paris, the Elysee presidential palace said French leader Francois Hollande warmly thanked Germany for its support and predicted other European countries would follow suit.

    The offer came a day after Merkel pledged in Paris to very soon decide how to help its closest EU ally battle the Islamic State group in Syria, and after she met Cabinet ministers in charge of security and the major parties parliamentary groups.

    The government had agreed on difficult but correct and necessary steps , said von der Leyen at a press conference in the Reichstag building, flanked by Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier.

    She said Germany could send Tornado aircraft fitted with surveillance technology that can take high-resolution photos and infrared images, even at night and in bad weather, and transmit them in real time to ground stations.

    A German frigate could help protect the French aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle in the eastern Mediterranean, from which fighter jets are carrying out bombing runs, and the tanker aircraft could refuel them midair to extend their range, she said.

    Steinmeier said the political process must continue to find a solution to the Syrian conflict, but added that we also won t get there without a military confrontation against the IS, Al-Nusra and other terrorist groups in Syria.

    Earlier Thursday the defense policy spokesman of Merkel s conservative CDU/CSU parliamentary group, Henning Otte, had pledged that Germany will play a more active role than before.

    Otte said Germany would go beyond its current arms shipments to and training of Iraqi Kurdish peshmerga forces combating Islamic State.

    We are not only strengthening the training mission in northern Iraq, but will step up our commitment in the fight against IS terror, among other things with RECCE reconnaissance Tornados, he said.

    Postwar Germany has been traditionally reluctant to send troops abroad, although it has joined U.N.-mandated missions in the Balkans and elsewhere, and the NATO coalition in Afghanistan.

    Germany has not taken part in airstrikes against the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq, which have been mainly flown by U.S. and French aircraft.

    Otte said that the IS can only be defeated militarily, therefore no idea must be ruled out as we engage in the fight against Islamist terrorism.

    On Wednesday, von der Leyen said Germany would deploy 650 more troops to Mali to relieve the French-led mission there.

    In a statement, Hollande s office said the announcement from Berlin on Thursday was a very major contribution, showing Germany s will to play a frontline role in the fight against the mutual curse of Islamic State.

    Thegroup claimed the Nov. 13 terror assaults in Paris that claimed 130 lives and left 350 injured.

    The president is convinced that other European states will follow this move and answer his call for solidarity from member states of the European Union, the Elysee statement added.

    France last week invoked a clause requiring EU member states to provide military assistance after the Paris attacks.

    ‘Unbroken Brain’ Explains Why ‘Tough’ Treatment Doesn’t Help Drug Addicts

    Taylor Callery/Ikon Images/Getty Images

    Tough love, interventions and 12-step programs are some of the most common methods of treating drug addiction, but journalist Maia Szalavitz says they’re often counterproductive.

    “We have this idea that if we are just cruel enough and mean enough and tough enough to people with addiction, that they will suddenly wake up and stop, and that is not the case,” she tells Fresh Air ‘s Terry Gross.

    Szalavitz is the author of Unbroken Brain. a book that challenges traditional notions of addiction and treatment. Her work is based on research and experience; she was addicted to cocaine and heroin from the age of 17 until she was 23.

    Szalavitz is a proponent of “harm reduction” programs that take a nonpunitive approach to helping addicts and “treat people with addiction like human beings.” In her own case, she says that getting “some kind of hope that I could change” enabled her to get the help she needed.

    Title Unbroken Brain Subtitle A Revolutionary New Way of Understanding Addiction Author Maia Szalavitz

    Your purchase helps support NPR programming. How?

    I think that 12-step programs are fabulous self help. I think they can be absolutely wonderful as support groups. My issue with 12-step programs is that 80 percent of addiction treatment in this country consists primarily of indoctrinating people into 12-step programs, and no other medical care in the United States is like that. The data shows that cognitive behavioral therapy and motivational enhancement therapy are equally effective, and they have none of the issues around surrendering to a higher power, or prayer or confession.

    I think that one of the problems with the primary 12-step approach that we’ve seen in addiction treatment is that because the 12 steps involve moral issues, it makes people think that addiction is a sin and not a disease. The only treatment in medicine that involves prayer, restitution and confession is for addiction. That fact makes people think that addiction is a sin, rather than a medical problem. I think that if we want to destigmatize addiction, we need to get the 12 steps out of professional treatment and put them where they belong — as self-help.

    On the efficacy of maintenance treatment

    Buprenorphine and methadone are the two most effective treatments that we have for opioid addiction, and that is when they are taken indefinitely and possibly for a lifetime. So these medications are opioids themselves. They each have slightly different properties. but what they do is they allow you to function completely normally. You can drive. You can love. You can work. You can do everything that anybody else does.

    The way they are able to do that is because if you take an opioid in a regular steady dose every day at the same time and the dose is adjusted right for you, you will not experience any intoxication. The way people with addiction experience intoxication is that they take more and more and more, they take it irregularly, the dosing pattern is completely different. But if you do take it in a steady-state way — which is what happens when you are given it at a clinic every day at the same time — you then have a tolerance to opioids which will protect you if you relapse, and will mean that the death rate from overdose in people who are in maintenance is 50 to 70 percent lower than the death rate for people who are using other methods of treatment, and that includes all of the abstinence treatments.

    Related NPR Stories

    So maintenance is a really important treatment option for people with opioid addiction. It should be the standard of care. No one should ever be denied access to it. Unfortunately, we have this idea that if you take methadone or buprenorphine, you are just substituting one addiction for another.

    On using harm reduction instead of tough love to help addicts

    We do know from looking at the data that if you are kind and supportive and empathetic — if you do things like provide clean needles, provide opportunities for people to reverse overdose, provide safe injecting spaces — those things do not prolong addiction. And if tough love was the answer, and the idea was you shouldn’t enable addiction, if that theory was correct, those things should all prolong addiction, and the exact opposite is true. When you go into a needle exchange, one of the most amazing things is people are just treated with dignity and respect. And when you’re an active drug user, when you are injecting, everybody crosses the street to avoid you. And here you’re just seen as a person who deserves to live, and you deserve a chance. And it’s that that gives people hope. And it’s that that shortens the period of addiction.

    Maia Szalavitz is a journalist who has been covering addiction and drug related issues for nearly 30 years. She writes a column for Vice and has been a health reporter and columnist for Time magazine.Ash Fox/St. Martin’s Presshide caption

    Ash Fox/St. Martin’s Press

    On not serving any time in prison after being caught with 2.5 kilos of cocaine when she was 20 years old

    I have to say that being white and being female and being a person who was at an Ivy League school and being privileged in many other ways had an enormous amount to do with. why I was not incarcerated and why I’m not in prison now. I think our laws are completely and utterly racist. They were founded in racism, and they are enforced in a thoroughly biased manner. I was extraordinarily lucky to have an attorney and a judge that saw that I was getting better, and that allowed me to avoid that.

    Help Desk Software

    Welcome to the home of an open source trouble ticket system . Use this CGI script on your web site for everything from bug tracking and customer support to project management and to-do lists. Creating a trouble ticket is now as easy as submitting a web form. The help desk software will care about assigning unique number to each service request and saving it to the database. Truly scalable solution: start with a plain text database, upgrade to the industry-strength MySQL or Microsoft SQL Server engine as your needs grow.

    Say good-bye to mailto links and mail forms.

    The “thank you for your interest” message is not enough today. Assure your customers that you have an established workflow and no question will go into a black hole. The Trouble Ticket Express software will automatically produce easy to follow instructions how to submit follow-up messages and monitor ticket progress. Then it will broadcast e-mail notifications to all service operators announcing new customer inquiry.

    Note: The Trouble Ticket Express is downloadable software. To use it you must install the package on your web server. If you do not want installing software on your server or your hosting provider does not allow installing 3rd party programs, you may consider using Smart Answer – our cloud based customer service software . Smart Answer features trouble tickets, live help and embedded customer database. The system is deployed on a distributed failover cluster. Instant help desk activation with free trail.

    Getting loads of inquiries? Need to answer them with a team of agents?
    This is what the problem tracking software deals with. Have you ever happened to be writing an e-mail reply to a customer inquiry and when you have hit “send”, another member of your team has already dealt with the problem? It happens because conventional e-mail software does not support “group” mode. The Trouble Ticket Express solves the problem, as it requires claiming an ownership over a ticket, before ever starting to write an answer and ensures that no ticket belongs to more than one operator at once. It is like having shared mailbox with an advanced access control. Each e-mail message (or service ticket) has new attributes showing who is responsible and what is the current state.

    Which help desk software package is right for you?

    The help desk software comparison section provides side by side evaluation of 3 popular customer service packages.

    Lice Removal & Treatment Services #quality #lice #removal, #treatment, #lice #place,

    #

    Welcome to The Lice Place

    If you or a family member are unfortunate enough to come down with head lice, you may want to think twice before reaching for the customary bottle of lice shampoo or prescription treatment from the drug store. According to the latest research the tiny blood-sucking parasites are becoming increasingly resistant to traditional methods of treatment.

    The problem is that the over-the-counter shampoos have used the same few chemicals since they came on the market in the mid-1980s. They worked well at first, but over time, the lice developed widespread resistance to them. In fact, 99% of lice in a recent study were found to be immune to the effects of insecticides. Pharmaceutical prescription treatments, per their own clinical studies, only show a 70% to 80% efficacy rate.

    In addition to being ineffective and having some possible medical risks, the shampoos and prescription treatments are costly and only delay the suffering. At The Lice Place,we get rid of lice safely, effectively, and efficiently in just one treatment – without the use of pesticides. Furthermore, the head lice education and information you will receive at any of our clinics is based upon research, clinical studies and our own 11+ years of experience. No other lice treatment company is more professional and successful in defeating head lice than The Lice Place.

    Why The Lice Place is the safe, smart and effective choice:

    • The Lice Place is owned and operated by a Registered Nurse.
    • As a Registered Nurse, Penny Warner and The Lice Place team are bound by certain guidelines and practices that protect your family from potential harm.
    • During her more than 18 years as a Registered Nurse, Penny worked as a critical care nurse, as well as Director of Patient Safety, Risk Management, Healthcare Improvement, Education, Infection Control and Accreditation Coordinator. She brings all that knowledge and experience to her lice removal business.
    • The Lice Place started in 2006 when there were fewer than 5 lice removal companies in the US. You won’t find another service with more experience than The Lice Place.
    • Every family that comes to one of The Lice Place clinics will have their own private treatment room (at no extra charge) – We understand that your privacy is important.
    • The Lice Place has infection control policies in place, which ensures you will not get head lice after coming into any of our offices.
    • Utilizing The Warner Method – a safe, non-toxic, pesticide-free method of combing and manual removal – The Lice Place has the highest publicized success rate in the country – 99.6 percent, which is backed by our hassle-free 30-day guarantee!
    • At The Lice Place, we start AND finish the treatment. The burden is never placed on the client to “finish” the treatment at home. After all, isn’t that why you came to The Lice Place?
    • At The Lice Place, no one plays up the “panic” mode of head lice or preys upon a person’s vulnerability during this trying time. As members of the NALTP, you can be assured we will treat your family ethically in all aspects – from treatment to billing to honoring our guarantee.
    • No pesticides, no gimmicks, no copycats! We are THE lice removal company other companies try to duplicate. There is no need to go anywhere else but to the original – The Lice Place!

    Testimonials

    After my daughter got lice from her classmates, we tried getting rid of it on our own. Unfortunately we couldn’t get rid of the lice and after 3 treatments, I was very thankful to find The Lice Place. They removed the lice in one treatment and we haven’t seen any lice since then! Thanks again for all your help.

    When I called yesterday and talked to April I was frantic. I was half way around the world working in Iraq, and was not there to help my daughter, when she needed it. April was so calm and collected and made Chloe an appointment for the same day, which her dad had to take her to. I thought between him, his mother, the school and of course ME freaking out, there is no way we can get this handled last minute in one day. Thanks to April it happened. I really appreciate all of your help during this time of need and will never forget it. Believe it or not it means more to some people than others, the every day work you do. I thought it was hard doing what I do. LOL I heard it took 2 hours on my daughters hair and my husband was so impressed and informed when he left. We can’t thank you enough. GREAT JOB. I will definitely recommend your services in the future.

    The minute I walked in here, I knew I had come to the right place.

    I brought my four kids in today after a fierce battle with head lice over the weekend (I realize some people battle this for months. I can’t even imagine the horror!). Your facility is a GODSEND. I actually have felt my pulse and blood pressure return to normal after visiting today. I will feel 100% better after our follow-up check later this week, but I just wanted to thank you and your staff for saving a mom from the brink of insanity. And my sweet kiddos from more torture as we frantically attacked their heads! It will be wonderful to think about something other than lice! God bless!

    I just wanted to email to let you know how much my family and I appreciate Nina at your Dallas location. We made an appointment today and she and one of her employees worked through myself and my 3 daughters. All have long hair and 2 had quite a few nits. This was our first exposure to lice- so we count ourselves lucky to have it hit the first time when the girls were 16 and 12. The office was extremely busy – but Nina treated us very well. She patiently, pleasantly and diligently worked through our heads to insure we were lice free when we left. Hopefully we won’t be repeat customers in the future – but I will have no hesitation in referring The Lice Place to any family that may be experiencing a lice issue.

    OK, I cannot tell you and your staff enough THANK YOU’S. You saved my daughter and family. We were able to get in and out within 24 hours so my daughter could get back to camp. Just imagine 13 years old at camp and sent home. Penny was able to schedule us on Monday at 9am to get in. We were thrilled about the service. She was cleaned and she went back to camp the same day. She only missed 1 day. More driving to and from camp than anything. I cannot thank you and your staff enough for help, professionalism and overall kindness. The information given by your staff is up to date and very informative. The truth about Lice comes out and it is not that scary. When you and your staff explain things in a not panic frantic way, it all works out. Again I cannot thank you and your staff enough. A client and referral for life, (longer than a lice life).

    have literally spent hundreds and hundreds of dollars on products that don’t work. If I had come here when this first started, I would have saved myself a lot of money and a lot of frustration.

    I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for running a wonderful company that is truly a Godsend. Unfortunately, despite being super cautious, I ended up getting lice from one of my 6 year old students, which I discovered yesterday. I frantically searched the internet for treatment options and came across your website. I called as soon as the clinic opened this morning, and I was able to get in by 11:30. Your staff took care of me, and what an amazing job they did. They helped calm my stress level and put me at ease with everything. Within an hour and a half, I was out the door and feeling much better about the situation. Thank you again for everything! I will definitely recommend you in the future!

    I was thrilled with the service we received. Thank you so much for starting this business and for employing such kind and professional individuals.

    After our family had an outbreak of lice, we were happy to find The Lice Place. They were professional and worked very quickly to get rid of the lice issue. They also gave us some great tips for removing lice from our home altogether, which worked perfectly.

    Hosted Help Desk Software #hosted #help #desk #solutions

    #

    Overview of Hosted Help Desk Software

    Hosted help desk software eliminates an organization’s need to buy and manage servers internally as well as hire staff to manage and update the software.

    Until recently, help desk software had to be installed and maintained locally onto a company’s servers. Software updates and patches had to be downloaded and applied to fix bugs or update the product.

    With a web-based help desk software program, there’s nothing to install or manage locally and updates are automatic and applied to the business’s help desk as soon as they are available.

    How Businesses Use Hosted Help Desk Software

    Hosted help desk software like Zendesk allows businesses to easily provide reliable customer support. Zendesk is web-based, so there is no software to download or updates to install, and support agents (also called operators) can access ticket data and solve tickets from anywhere at anytime.

    Businesses also use help desk software to track and manage support metrics (also called analytics). Popular metrics include:

    • Assignment time
    • Agent productivity
    • Resolution time
    • % of tickets solved within 4 hours
    • Day/time ticket creation

    Interested in how companies like Groupon, Box.com, OpenTable, Guilt Groupe many other businesses use Zendesk’s hosted help desk software? (Click here to read unique customer stories)

    Why Zendesk?

    Zendesk keeps things simple.

    Zendesk’s support desk software provides customers with ticket management tools, and highly configurable forums, knowledge base, and FAQs.

    Zendesk also provides advanced support features, including: live chat, ticketing workflow, and remote support, and native mobile apps for iOS, Android, Blackberry and Windows Phone.

    Zendesk’s online help desk software is highly customizable for design and workflow, and includes multi-channel online support through powerful integrations with: Twitter for Business, Salesforce, GoodData, and LogMeRescue.

    Zendesk builds support software for companies who care about their customers.

    Outsourced IT Support

    Outsourced IT? That’s a buzzword.

    We prefer to think of ourselves as collaborative IT — but nobody searches for that term. We’re collaborative because we serve as an extension of your team. Your goals are our goals. We want to keep your technology working at its peak efficiency so it serves you, empowers you, and makes your day.

    So what do we do? You name it. If it beeps or blinks, we manage it. If you can’t afford to lose it, we protect it. If you can’t decide which app to use, we’ll find the right one. If you don’t want to manage a herd of vendors, let us do it.

    We can serve as both the CIO and the CTO for your company. We can keep technology running at peak efficiency and help you leverage the advantages that outsourced support can bring to your business.

    Custom services to fit your business, your needs.

    User Support

    Many businesses rely on an in-house expert – whether it’s someone in their IT department or just a “power user” to deal with common user problems. Unfortunately, this means that when technical issues arise, two employees are taken off tasks that could deliver more value to the business. CMIT’s help desk and dedicated technicians ensure that your workforce stays productive while we take care of technical problems. And because most problems can be easily remedied over the phone, you’re spared the expense and the wait of an on-site visit.

    Hardware and Software Purchasing

    Your CMIT Team can maximize your technology budget by helping you find the best hardware and software solutions for your business. First, we sit down with you and make sure we understand the business problem you’re looking to solve – not just the technical problem. We’ll evaluate your current systems to make sure we can get the best value out of your existing investments. Then, we recommend not just the right equipment but the right strategy to get your business to where you want it to be. Our partnerships with tech leaders like Dell, Microsoft and Intuit ensure that we can get you the right products to solve the problem at prices that won t break the bank.

    Network Support

    Make your network work for you, not the other way around. Your CMIT Team can design the network you need, whether your staff is large or small, in-house or mobile. From traditional LANs to the latest wireless LAN technology solutions, CMIT technicians install your network, test it, and teach you what you need to know to utilize it effectively.

    Consulting Services

    Let CMIT be your virtual Chief Information Officer (CIO). Our team can consult for your small to medium size business on all your technology needs. Contact us today to learn how we can make your office more efficient.

    GASTRIC BYPASS SURGERY- Information on cost, expected weight loss and risk

    #

    Gastric Bypass and Gastric Sleeve Diet

    Immediately after your gastric bypass or gastric sleeve surgery, you won’t be able to eat for one to two days. After a couple of days, you will be able to eat some very specific foods according to a diet progression. The purpose of the gastric bypass diet progression is to help you in the healing process, minimize stress on surgical areas and allow time for your body to adjust to new eating patterns.

    Common phases in the gastric bypass and gastric sleeve diet:

    Phase I – Liquids – foods and fluids that are liquid or semi-liquid at room temperature and contain mostly water, such as broth, juice, milk, strained cream soup and cooked cereal. In most cases, you stay on a liquid diet for one to two days.

    Phase II – Pureed foods – foods with a consistency of a smooth paste or a thick liquid. Pureed foods contain no distinct pieces. The pureed diet is generally followed for three to four weeks, or as recommended by your dietitian or doctor.

    Phase III – Soft foods – foods that are tender and easy to chew, such as ground or finely diced meats, canned or soft, fresh fruit, and cooked vegetables. You usually eat soft foods for eight weeks before progressing to eating foods of regular consistency with firmer texture as recommended by your dietitian or doctor.

    During the diet progression, you eat many small meals each day and sip liquids slowly throughout the day (but not at the same time you eat). You may start with six small meals a day, then progress to four meals and then finally, when following a regular diet, decrease to three meals a day. Typically, each meal will include protein-rich foods, such as lean meat, low-fat dairy products (yogurt, cheese) or eggs. Protein is important for maintaining and repairing your body after surgery.

    How quickly you move from one step to the next depends on how fast your body adjusts to the change in eating patterns and the texture and consistency of food. People usually start eating regular foods with a firmer texture three months after surgery, but it can occur sooner.

    You may drink anything that is clear and liquid at room temperature. Avoid caffeine and carbonated drinks.

    • Water with ice chips
    • Sugar free popsicles
    • Crystal Light
    • Decaf tea
    • Sugar Free Jell-O
    • Diet V8 Splash

    Do not drink from straws or sports top bottles as this can cause air bubbles and may cause discomfort. Water may be difficult at first. Try adding lemon and adjusting the temperature. Please follow your doctors’ recommendations on how long to follow each diet.

    • Mashed potatoes
    • Bananas
    • Malt-O Meal
    • Scrambled Eggs
    • Baked Fish
    • Low Fat cottage cheese
    • Sugar free yogurt or pudding
    • Applesauce with no sugar added
    • Soft cooked vegetables
    • Avoid eating fats and sugar for the time being as these may be difficult for the body to digest in this stage.
    • Chew your food very well – eat slowly.
    • If you feel full – STOP EATING

    • Protein is needed by the body to build and repair the body’s cells and tissues.
    • Protein plays a vital role in immunity.
    • Choose lean meats such as:
    • Fish, shellfish, poultry, lean beef, lamb, pork, veal, and 95% fat free deli meat.
    • Avoid high fat cooking methods like frying with oil. void high fat meats such as bacon, sausage, pepperoni or salami.
    • A limited amount of fat is needed in the diet.
    • Fats can be found in baked goods (cakes, muffins, cookies), greasy or fried foods, oils and butter.
    • Fat may be difficult to digest after gastric bypass surgery.
    • Too much fat may cause reflux (heartburn).
    • Excess fat may cause diarrhea, nausea and discomfort.
    • Avoid high fat choices like regular salad dressing, butter, cream cheese and mayonnaise.
    • Choose low fat options such as fat free / low fat salad dressing, mayonnaise, nonstick cooking spray and olive oil.

    • Carbohydrates including grains and starches are the bodies main source of energy.
    • They provide energy, B Vitamins, Fiber, and Minerals
    • Complex carbohydrates provide nutrients and make you feel full.
    • Look for foods with whole grain or 100% wheat flour.
    • Examples of complex carbohydrates:
    • Wheat bread, low fat crackers, cereals with low sugar such as Special K, Cheerios, Raisin Bran, rice and pasta
    • VEGETABLES provide fiber, energy, Vitamin A and Vitamin C
    • Choose a variety of vegetables for your diet
    • Avoid using high fat cooking methods such as added butter or oil, or adding high fat sauces such as creams, cheese or gravy
    • Remember to incorporate vegetables back into your diet slowly and start with soft consistencies.
    • FRUIT provides complex carbohydrates, fiber, energy and Vitamin C.

    10 Ways to Settle Your IRS Tax Debts For Less Than

    #

    10 Ways to Settle Your IRS Tax Debts For Less Than What You Owe

    Do you Find dealing with the IRS frustrating, Intimidating and Time-consuming. You’re not alone.

    While taxpayers may always represent themselves in front of the IRS, many turn to professional tax help (specialized IRS Tax attorney s, CPAs, and Certified Tax Resolution Specialists) in order to maximize their chances of winning a tax settlement while minimizing their contact with the IRS agents. Owing the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) money is intimidating to most people. The IRS has the power to garnish your wages, seize your assets and place a lien on your property in order to obtain the money that you owe them. However, these actions can be prevented by communicating promptly with the IRS about your situation. The IRS is usually willing to work with taxpayers, and there are several options available so that you may resolve your debt issues.

    Another Interesting Read:

    As a creditor, the Internal Revenue Service carries the weight of the federal government behind it. In addition to having extensive methods to collect on outstanding tax debt, the IRS also can be extremely patient. As long as the IRS knows it is going to get paid someday, it can wait until you are in a better financial position to pay. Of course, the longer you take to pay your tax debt, the more you will owe.

    10 Ways to Settle Your IRS Tax Debt

    1. Installment Agreement:

    A monthly payment plan for paying off the IRS. If you think you are a victim of a fraudulent investment scheme (“Ponzi” Scheme), where you have lost all or most of your investment, you may be eligible to take advantage the United States Tax Code (law) to recoup 30% to 40% of your losses. This highly technical and complex process can help you reduce taxes paid in previous years resulting in refund with interest.

    What are the different types of Installment Agreements?

    2. Partial payment installment agreement:

    A fairly new debt management program where you have a long term payment plan to pay off the IRS at a reduced dollar amount.Much like a monthly credit card payment, IRS payment plans allow you to pay off your unpaid back taxes in installments instead of all at once. A well-qualified tax debt attorney or Certified Tax Resolution Specialist will negotiate the lowest possible monthly payment for your needs.

    3. Offer in Compromise :

    A program where you can settle your tax debts for less than what you owe. Requires making a lump sum or short term payment plan to pay off the IRS at a reduced dollar amount.If you owe the IRS more than you can afford to pay, this could be the plan for you. Essentially, an Offer in Compromise gives you the opportunity to pay a small amount as a full and final payment. If you qualify for the Offer in Compromise program, you can save thousands of dollars in taxes, penalties and interest.

    4. Not currently collectible:

    A program where the IRS voluntarily agrees not to collect on the tax debt for a year or so. Currently Not Collectible means that a taxpayer has no ability to pay his or her tax debts. The IRS can declare a taxpayer currently not collectible, after the IRS receives evidence that a taxpayer has no ability to pay. This is a useful tool because you can file for a collection appeal to stop an IRS levy, lien, seizure or the denial or termination of an installment agreement. The collection appeal gives you the opportunity to explain how you think the situation could be solved without the IRS levy or seizure .

    5. Lower Your Debt With Credit Card Debt Settlement:

    There are two methods of credit card debt consolidation. through a credit card debt settlement company or on your own. Credit card debt settlement companies should be avoided. They collect your payments for months before making a settlement offer if they make an offer at all. Meanwhile, you continue receiving collection calls and negative payment marks on your credit report. You ll get better and faster results settling debts on your own.Final credit card debt settlement agreements should be in writing. Either draft an agreement of your own or have your credit card company send you an agreement. Make sure you and someone from your credit card company have both signed the agreement before you send payment.

    6. File bankruptcy:

    Income tax debts may be eligible for discharge under Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 of the Bankruptcy Code. Filing for bankruptcy is one of five ways to Tax Debt Relief. but you should consider bankruptcy only if you meet the requirements for discharging your taxes. Chapter 7 provides for full discharge of allowable debts. Chapter 13 provides a payment plan to repay some debts, with the remainder of debts discharged

    There s no secret sauce in paying off tax debts. These are the only five ways of getting out from under the IRS aggressive debt collection tactics. If a tax pro promises you that you can save pennies on the dollar through an offer in compromise, that person is probably more interested in selling you something you don t need instead of focusing on your unique financial situation and determining what the best course of action is for you.

    7. Release Wage Garnishments .

    When you owe Uncle Sam money, the IRS can levy your wages, salary, or federal payments until the levy is released, your tax debt has been fully paid off, or the time expires for legally collecting the tax. There’s room here to bargain for a release or modification to the garnishment if you don’t have enough money to survive with the levy.

    8. Stop the IRS from Levying Your Bank Account.

    The IRS can issue a bank levy to take your cash in savings and checking accounts to collect back taxes. When the IRS levies a bank account, the bank is required to remove whatever amount is available in your account that day (up to the amount of the IRS levy ) and send it to the IRS in 21 days unless notified otherwise by the IRS. Part of the process of resolving your IRS debt is obtain a release of the levy from the IRS.

    9. Innocent Spouse Relief.

    If you happen to inherit your spouse’s IRS tax problems. you have an escape route. If you can prove that your circumstances fit within the IRS guidelines for innocent spouse tax relief. you may not be subject to the taxes caused by your spouse or ex-spouse.

    10. Pay Attention to the Expiration of the Statue of Limitations.

    The IRS has 10 years from the date of assessment (usually close to the filing date) to collect all taxes, penalties and interest from you. An expert tax attorney, tax CPA or tax resolution specialist can help resolve your back taxes and IRS problems by just by advising and strategizing with you to wait out the 10 year expiration date.

    This is a useful tool because you can file for a collection appeal to stop an IRS levy, lien, seizure or the denial or termination of an installment agreement. The collection appeal gives you the opportunity to explain how you think the situation could be solved without the IRS levy or seizure.
