Talk to your surgeon about the risks and result you should expect.
Ask for before and after pictures of thigh lift surgeries so you will know what you are about to get. Try and locate someone with the same thigh appearance like you have.
Quit smoking 1 month before the thigh lift surgery and 1 month after the thigh lift surgery so you will get better heeling with less scars.
The patient will need to stay at the hospital or clinic for 1-2 days for observation, after the thigh lift surgery.
After the thigh lift surgery the patient will need to rest for about 1-2 weeks. The patient will be able to resume normal but mild activities in about one month.
It is possible to combine the thigh lift surgery with surgeries at other body parts such as: buttocks lift surgery, hips lift surgery, and abdomen lift surgery. If all are made together the surgery is called body lift surgery. If only thigh lift surgery and buttocks lift surgery are made, the surgery is called: Lower body lift surgery.
At the first few days after the thigh lift surgery, carefully apply ice in a cloth on the spot where you had the thigh lift surgery to reduce the pain.

Breast Plastic Surgery

NOTED ARTIST’S DAUGHTER IS HOMELESS

Elbert Weinberg was a sculptor and teacher. In 1951 he won the Prix de Rome, a prestigious art fellowship. He had an adorable daughter named Julia and he did a bust of her when she was three-years-old. The future looked bright for the talented sculpture and h is family. He never imagined someday she’d join the city’s homeless.

Julia attended private school in Switzerland. When she returned to the United States with her father she did a semester at Skidmore college. She worked as a model, spoke several languages, including Japanese, French and Italian.

Weinberg’s work brought in high prices. To protect his daughter’s future, he set up a trust fund for his daughter. Despite her education and abilities she struggled with depression and was in and out of mental institutions. Unable to pursue a career, she relied on her father financially. When Weinberg learned he was dying of cancer, he worried about his daughter and made her the sole heir of his work.

Because of her mental problems, he put the inheritance in a trust fund and chose a fried and fellow artist as the trustee. S. Joel Karp of Avon lived with his family in Avon, Connecticut.

The father knew the trust would not completely support his daughter. He set it up so it could supplement what she’d receive from public support. For a number of years she lived in a small apartment in Hartford and received public assistance. Recently, she was locked out in a dispute with her landlord and now lives at the South Park Inn Shelter in Hartford.

What happened to her trust fund administered by her father’s good friend? It was investigated after Julia complained to the courts. However, Hartford Probate Judge Robert Killian allowed the trustee to provide financial disclosure only going back to 1997 instead of 1991 when the trust was in effect.Karp and a co-trustee have withdrawn more than $35,626 for themselves claiming it was fees and commissions. Meanwhile, Julia, for whom the fund was intended received only $13,288 for clothes, dental work, and some college courses.

The courts did not protect Julia’s assets and now she remains at the shelter hoping the state can help her find another apartment. Meanwhile the trustees have set up a site on the internet costing $11,000 to display the atwork of her father. It can be viewed at http://www.elbertweinberg.com

Incheon International Airport

Seoul
After all the fuss has died down the newly opened Incheon International Airport, dubbed ‘The Winged City’, is proving to be what the exhausted Kimpo was not; a contemporary, efficiently run facility which should more than adequately handle the huge influx of visitors that Korea is expecting for the 2002 World Cup.

After a huge land reclamation and construction project of over 8 years, the purposefully designed round-the-clock, state of the art facility is touted to become the travel hub of Asia.

While the convenience of catching the subway directly to the terminal has been put on hold until the new high speed rail line is completed (scheduled for 2007), the country’s bus operators have more than compensated with a bevy of coaches serving virtually every part of Seoul and its outlying provinces.

The buses cost 5500 won or 10000 won, depending on the proprietor, and this is a steep rise from the 800 won maximum that the Kimpo subway run used to cost. Nevertheless, these fares are typical of airports around the world and a world class airport brings with it parallel pricing.

bussignWell sign-posted bus stops line the building outside the arrivals floor playing host to an incessant stream of transport. Many of the buses stop at subway stations along their route allowing travelers easy access to those parts of Seoul that the airport bus network doesn’t serve.

A little forward planning, involving identifying the closest subway to the ultimate destination and printing out a subway map (see http://www.escortmap.co.kr ) will prove invaluable on the stroll down the 1055 meter-long bus stop alley in the hunt for the right vehicle.

For those who reside in Seoul or are hiring cars it is worth noting that the one way toll on the new highway costs 6100 won. This fee and the extra distance from the city has also pushed up the prices of a taxi ride to the vicinity of 30000 (minimum) won into downtown Seoul. Those heading out to the airport via cab should be wary of drivers asking for an extra fee to be compensated for a fareless journey back to Seoul.

Unfortunately the bus services stop operating at about 10:30pm so those arriving later (or on early flights) have to make alternate travel arrangements.

airsideThe airport has a wide range of facilities including bowling lanes, a sauna, prayer rooms and the obligatory duty-free stores and eateries.

For transit passengers the airport houses a hotel on the fourth floor of the complex. The Sheraton Walker Hill run hotel houses 90 guest rooms and other facilities can be contacted on +8232 743 3000. Rooms are available on an hourly basis.

History of Scotland – Eternal Picts: Their Lasting Influence

As we have seen in previous articles, the Picts were the dominant force in Scotland for hundreds of years. However, very few contemporary records exist and consequently little is known about these people. They have, however, left us their carvings on stone, the intricacies of which indicate a people who were not as barbaric as the Roman writers claimed. These stones provide most of our knowledge about the Picts.Spiral from Pictish stone.

The earliest of these carvings contain pagan symbols but the Christianisation of the people can be clearly traced through this work. Stylised animals and geometric patterns are characteristic of the art. Some of the animal figures may be linked with mythical creatures or heathen gods. The Drosden Stone depicts a figure with a crossbow proving that the weapons in Scotland at this time were more sophisticated than is often believed.

According to George Bain (who has done much to promote Celtic Art and has been largely responsible for the recent resurgence of interest in it) Celtic Art had its roots in the Mediterranean but reached its peak with the Picts. In his book, ‘Celtic Art: The Methods of Construction’, he refers to the Pictish School of Celtic Art and states that ‘the finest examples of ornamented stone monuments, metal work and jewellery have been found’ in those areas inhabited by the Picts.Fragment of Inverurie stone.

Mention Celtic Art and most people think of the Irish Books of Kells and Durrow. George Bain states that these beautiful examples of Celtic Art are similar in style to the Pictish stones of East Scotland and to the stones of Northern Ireland in the area inhabited by the Cruithne (more evidence that the Cruithne of Ireland were of the same stock as the Picts of Scotland). Celtic ornamentation in other areas of Britain is different in style and belongs to other schools of Celtic Art.

Unfortunately many of the Pictish stones were deliberately destroyed when Pope Gregory the Great (born 540 AD, Pope 590-604 AD) ordered the obliteration of the Celtic Christian Church. The adherents of this Catholic church argued with Rome, mainly over the date of Easter. This led King Oswy of Northumbria calling the Synod of Whitby in 664 AD where it was decided that the Roman Catholic Church should prevail. Celtic Christianity waned and the Pope’s authority was recognised in Scotland until the Protestant Reformation in the 16th century.

Examples of Pictish jewellery have also been found. Again the intricate designs indicate craftsmanship of a superior nature. Jewellery was made of bronze or silver and moulds for brooches have been found throughout Scotland. Heavy double-link silver chains have also been excavated. These may have been used as symbols of rank.

The Picts lived in small communities, probably made up of family units. Knives, mirrors and combs have been excavated from Pictish sites. They knew the skills of pottery and weaving but unfortunately little or no evidence of these survives – time and weather have destroyed most of these remains. Some Pictish stones depict harps and pipes allowing us some idea of their music.

A few buildings have survived from this period. Circular stone buildings (brochs) were probably used for defensive purposes. Hillforts dating to this period have also been found. The people themselves lived in houses of differing architectural styles. Round or rectilinear, stone or wood – the variations depended on location (both geographically and chronologically) and available materials. Some lived in crannogs – houses built on poles in the waters of a loch – presumably for defensive purposes. Some of these buildings were built on earlier sites and many of them were certainly in a similar style to those of the earlier inhabitants of Scotland.

Apart from inter-tribal conflict, other dangers existed. Bears, boars and wolves still roamed the land. Indeed there may have been some trade with the Romans who prized Caledonian bears for use in their gory entertainments. This hard life took its toll and life expectancy would have been short for most Picts. Although little is know about this ancient people, their contribution to Scottish culture and art has been invaluable.

[Write Like a Pro] Writers Share Their Secrets

Mortgages/Loans Feature Writer Asa Ghadfar has been helping members of the top writing community for a long time now. He’s often sought out by writers seeking some friendly advice; so we thought it was high time that his much-valued, not-so-secret tips on where to find (lucrative) article topics and how to research relevant, supporting keywords were made available to the wider writing community.

Where do you get your ideas for article topics? What sort of research do you put into coming up with these ideas?

The best ideas tend to arise when you aren’t trying to come up with them. Pay close attention to the news, hot searches, economic conditions, seasonal factors, Internet advertising and conversations people have when you’re out and about. You can be virtually certain that these are the sort of things that your readers will be searching for on Google when they next go online. Remember to note down your ideas.

Always perform keyword and competition analysis. It takes me about 20 minutes per article, but it’s worth it. When there’s insufficient interest in a topic or the area is saturated with content, choose a better keyword phrase or write about something different. The exception to this rule is if you have reason to believe that an area will soon gain popularity due to something the wider community aren’t yet aware of.

Make the most of your research by writing in large webs, remembering to organically link them together. Don’t write a series of articles ending in “part 1″, “part 2″ or “part 3″ as that doesn’t work.

As one of our most profitable writers, you have an eye for determining what subjects will be moneymakers. A big part of article profitability is the advertisers that appear on your articles. Do you have any tips for writers on how to ensure that high-paying advertisers will be associated with their articles?

If you get your SEO right, readers will find your work and the correct ads will display. Ads show based on budgetary availability and the relevancy of your content. You can get hundreds of page views, but your readers won’t click on ads that aren’t relevant to their search. Strategically position your main keyword phrases in your title, description, first 100 words, bold subheadings and the conclusion.

While you need excellent SEO to get the reader to your page, you must offer something that holds their interest once they get there. While spelling mistakes imply that you’re an amateur, our readers aren’t interested in a grammar lesson. They want a solution and it’s our job to help them find “the next step”. If everything they need can be found in your article, you won’t get many ad clicks. It’s all about balance.

If you’re new to SEO writing or are struggling to make your writing pay, check out learning section. You may believe that it’s better to “just start writing”, but you’ll soon hit a stumbling block. I’ve seen people write 100+ articles before they realize a series of mistakes that they could have avoided with 10 minutes of light reading. You wouldn’t try to build a house if you hadn’t already laid the foundations.

Are there any SEO resources or tools on the web that you’d recommend to other writers?

Never guess, use the Google Adwords tool to find your keyword phrases. Assess the competition by performing a Google search for that keyword phrase in quotation marks to ascertain how many exact matches there are. The source of competition is more important than the number. Government departments and large niche businesses are serious competition, but thousands of small personal blogs are easy to outrank.

Some keyword phrases don’t have sufficient advertisers to make writing an article worth your while. When I’m concerned about advertiser competition, I check my keyword phrases in the Google Adsense Sandbox. You’ll see a list of potential advertisers for different parts of the world. It’s also useful for trouble shooting if your article doesn’t display ads due to the use of poison words that are prohibited by Google.

Search engine algorithms are increasingly paying more and more attention to reader engagement when it comes to ranking content; has this affected your writing strategy over the last few months?

I’d recommend a trial and error approach to reader comments. Although I believe that search engines like reader engagement, I’ve found that higher CPC topics attract mainly spam. I used to spend hours deleting links that send my readers to XYZ.com. Some subjects fair a lot better than others so you must be the judge regarding whether comments work for you. If you do accept a comment, watch out for poison words in any of your reader comments as they could also affect your ad display.

New York City on a Budget – Play Ball!

While the summer equinox doesn’t officially occur until the end of June, the sixth month is often looked at as the start of lazy days, afternoon beer drinking and thoughts of sandy beaches. It is also the best time to partake in what has always been called “America’s pastime.” I’m of course talking about baseball.

If you are spending any amount of time in New York City this season, you must stop by and visit at least one of last year’s World Series contenders. New York is the proud home of both The Mets and The Yankees; and tickets for seats do not cost that much if you know what you are doing.

Sure, tickets at Yankee Stadium can cost as much as $65, but if you are willing to forgo drinking for a few hours bleacher seats are the best value at $8. If you are in the mood for a beer, then your next bet is $15 a seat, but then again beers do range from $5.50 to $6.25. Senior Citizens can get in for $5 and students can get a discount as well simply by presenting a high school or college ID card at the Advance Ticket Window. Every Tuesday, tickets for Tier Reserved seats are only $14. In town for Fleet Week? Then get one free admission with presentation of active military ID at the Press Gate, day of game only. And of course if you’re a half-pint under the age of 14, you can get half-price on a ticket when accompanied by an adult.

The Yankee Stadium subway stop is located directly outside the Stadium at the corner of 161st St. and River Ave. It is conveniently reachable by several subway lines and a trip from midtown Manhattan takes less than 25 minutes. The #4 train, as well as the B (weekdays only) and D trains makes stops at 161st St./Yankee Stadium and roundtrip only costs $3.

With the Mets you won’t find yourself spending more than $43 on a ticket and if you sit in the upper tier section you can get away with paying as little as $12. Even the beer is cheaper at Shea Stadium with a Budweiser costing $5. Take a ride on the subway line Atlanta Brave John Rocker made famous, the #7 IRT Flushing line. Services to Shea Stadium at the Willets Point/Shea Stadium station makes stops at Times Square, Fifth Avenue and Grand Central Station in Manhattan.

Higher Education – Study-Abroad Programs

Many people choose to spend all or part of a year during their time in college or graduate school living and/or studying in another country. There are many options and opportunities for those who are interested in doing this. Students usually study abroad in their sophomore or junior year of college, and most colleges are ready to accept transfer credits from recognized study-abroad programs. Your college may even sponsor a program itself, in which case the credits will be treated just like those from classes you take on-campus. Do be aware that not all programs transfer and that most colleges require you to spend at least four semesters “in residence” (taking classes on-campus), so check with your school before your plan your program.

Programs for undergraduates may be as short as a week during spring break spent exploring Costa Rican rainforests or as long as an entire academic year learning Japanese in Tokyo. The most common programs are semester or yearlong. However, some students choose summer or January programs. If you are majoring in a department where it is easy to find coursework abroad (like language, literature, or history), you will have an easier time finding a full-year program that suits your needs than if you study something like physics or engineering.

Some students also study abroad as part of a graduate program. These options are most common for law and business students as part of international concentrations, but educators, health sciences students, and social sciences students also do find programs. Some consist of formalized coursework and language learning, much like an undergraduate program. Others focus on fieldwork and internships.

Another option, which is growing in popularity, involves students who spend time in another country working or volunteering. The most well known program of this type is the Peace Core, a post-baccalaureate time spent working on development projects in third-world countries. But Non-Governmental Organizations of all kinds are sponsoring internships abroad in fields like education, environmental conservation, and family planning. Students can get paying jobs abroad as well, though this is more complicated due to visa regulations.

One important choice that the prospective study-abroad participant must make regards the language content of the program. The easiest option is to choose a country where the language spoken is one that you are comfortable with. Many students from the United States choose to go to the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, or English-speaking countries in Africa. For students from Quebec, Haiti, France, or Senegal may be an attractive option. Students who grew up bilingual may choose a country that speaks their second language. When availing yourself of this option, do remember that the dialect spoken in the country you are travelling to may actually be almost a different language. Countries separated by time and distance have languages that develop differently over time. A French speaker from Paris and one from Haiti may not be able to understand each other at all, and there are hundreds of dialects in Chinese (some of which even have different writing systems)!

The Good Side of Bonds

This course is designed for learning, comprehension, and enjoyment of a general audience. A rigorous technical or math background is not required, although some previous mathematics or science knowledge may be helpful. This is for the beginning student who is awe-inspired and curious about the act of flight, and for the intelligent, equally curious member of the public who realizes that aerodynamic knowledge is both important and fascinating. Read Introduction

1.Bonds are reasonably predictable

If you hold bonds until maturity, you can expect your investment to be reasonably predictable. If you invest in a reputable bond issuer, you can expect a fixed rate of interest on a regular basis, plus a lump sum (the original value of the bond) to be repaid to you when the bond matures.

2.Bonds can provide a stable income stream

Bonds are sometimes called “fixed interest investments”. Most bonds pay a fixed rate of interest, and generate a stable and reliable income stream for the term of the bond.

The ‘yield’ (ie. the return) generated by bonds has often been greater than the interest generated by term deposits (ie. cash interest rates).

3.Bonds can be profitable

Historically, bonds have significantly outperformed cash investments, and only slightly under performed property investments. Long term bond returns are also well above the level of inflation.

The steady income stream generated by bond coupons also helps to keep the value of bonds relatively stable.

4.You can diversify your investment

There are many types of bonds in which you can invest – with varying terms and interest rates.

You can reduce the volatility of your investment portfolio by spreading your money across different types of bonds, and particularly across bonds with different terms (that is, bonds which mature at different times).

If you’ve ever visited a well established garden, you will understand the importance of this kind of diversification. Most beautiful gardens include a variety of complementary plantings: shrubs, flowers, trees and lawns. The plants in the garden will be in season at different times and for different lengths of time. Some will be evergreens and last for generations, others will be annuals that bloom only briefly but brilliantly. By diversifying a cross a number of different species, a clever gardener can keep a garden looking beautiful all year round.

The same principle applies to bonds. By investing in a variety of bonds, you are not relying on the performance of just one investment, nor leaving yourself exposed to a particular time and market when you have to replace your entire bond portfolio.

Where is nutritional researching taking Fibromyalgia Treatment?

Where is nutritional researching taking Fibromyalgia Treatment? For most of our experiences the answer would be absolutely nowhere. Actually there is a hidden area of research that is actually making advances.

These are the many companies telling us they have the magic supplement to heal us. Some of them are real and others are a bunch of hooey. How can we tell the difference?

There are some basics you want to consider. You don’t want to take marketers’ “personal cure stories” too seriously, but don’t totally ignore them. Then again don’t believe that it is holy gospel and the truth. They are still selling what they are talking about.

This is why in my club and sites I resist the urge to SELL any one product. I host a few banners however I do NOT sell anything in particular. This has resulted in some pretty angry people on occasion. It has also resulted in some pretty persistent campaigns to my e-mail.

Just because this person says it works doesn’t mean a thing. You actually do not want to trust all those reports the companies show you either.

Research results can be made to say what a company wants them to. This can be done easily, by setting up the test so that there is no control group or long term tracking of the participants in the test. Looks great on paper but it can all be deceptive.

Independent testing NOT funded by the company is usually the best source of information and research. This research should also be supported by control and placebo test groups, which have taken varying amounts of the supplement.

Now that you figure taking a look at it won’t hurt me. Let us look at the next question, what is in it?

Things to watch for; known allergens or irritants, excess sugar or milk, oversized or bulky tablets or servings, vague ingredients or generic ingredient listings such as “vitamins”.

You of course want to know EXACTLY what is in this miracle you are about to buy. First and foremost know what is in the supplement. Look for a detailed ingredient list. This is how to be sure you are not buying just a 1200mg vitamin C tablet.

Many of these wonderful formulas are the SAME! You compare one product for $24.00 and another similar or nearly identical formula of the same size and the second bottle is $48.00. This is disgusting at best. Keep in mind why would you pay $40 for a bottle of vitamins that you can buy singularly for less and possibly in better dosage sizes.

Supplements are not yet regulated by the Government so we want to be sure to watch how much of what is in there. This will effect not only your wallet but also your health overall. In the case of actual ingredients such as sugar and allergens these ingredients could harm anyone including and especially those prone to anaphylaxis or diabetic reaction.

There is also another concern. These formulas contain herbs and huge amounts of some vitamins and none of others. They are at times poorly combined so that although the herbs and vitamins are there, the body will pass them out uselessly. Other vitamins such as Vitamin A are toxic at high levels. Your body simply cannot eliminate some vitamins unless your body uses them. Vitamin toxicity is dangerous business.

Then there are the herbs. These herbs are intended for use on many conditions and they can be very beneficial. However, if you are heart patient and start using St Johns Wort or Kava Kava without the doctors’ knowledge and supervision you could be a dead heart patient very quickly.

Still with my mountain man heritage I find myself learning every day. Don’t let a supplement company have your blind faith. I learn daily and by FAR I am NO expert on these matters. I am sharing my knowledge and what does and doesn’t work so that you can start farther ahead of the game in looking for your own remedies. Even if your remedy turns out to be a 5-tablet $40 bottle of pills, it is your remedy and it works. Just select it wisely.

Today Fibromyalgia patients are turning in larger numbers to the alternative medicine, or herbal answers that the general supplement industry is giving. Currently doctors fail to offer much or any hope. The supplement suppliers are speaking in terms of change, answers and yes relief. Their research proves it! Daily I find or receive stories from patients about what did or didn’t work. They are moving on with their lives now that they have found an answer for themselves.

It is true that new drugs are being found daily. Discovered by the medical professionals they will help some but come with their own problems. Meanwhile we struggle to sleep, eat, and function.

Just as others have success with over the counter herbal products in just a few days, medical professionals are slowed by rules of scientific study. The scientist must prove their work. They must back it with double blind studies and hours upon hours of observations and studies. While their answers seem so much more definite, we must wait for them to release the newest drugs. This slow process does not help us in the here and now.

While some doubtable research may sound so good, we must remember, sometimes the quickest answer is not always safe or legitimate. Shady or poor studies can lead to more problems while good slow work comes too infrequently. How can the medical industry and supplement suppliers improve the process and perhaps even speed it up? We can’t be sure of what changes can or should be made however, what we do learn needs to be shared so good work can be built upon and not just duplicated. By sharing perhaps nutritional research will actually lead to relief or a cure instead of confusion and risky studies that are suspect and perhaps dangerous.

As always, research is very beneficial. Lets make the supplement companies accountable for what they advocate and advertise by being cautious consumers who purchase wisely and demand quality. Otherwise, nutritional research may lead to problems instead of answers.
