All I had to do was get old.
Not one woman notices me any more.
At RSNA in Chicago, Philips is introducing its new ‘in-bore patient distraction’ offering for patients undergoing head-first scans under MRI. Currently, only exams that keep the patient’s head outside the scanner allow for headphones to be worn and a display to be seen.
The new Philips solution is essentially a video screen positioned outside the bore and a mirror attached to the head coil that lets patients focus on what’s playing on the screen instead of worrying about the exam. Moreover, sound is also piped to the patient to help distract from the crunchy MRI noises.
Yup, we are SO lucky!
We love this. Cassie is our Support Manager ad has been on a fast learning curve in how to best serve our customers. It’s not always easy, because some customers are seriously in ‘victim’ mode and don’t seem to appreciate being treated well. They are so ready to jump down her throat that they can’t actually hear that they’ve actually found someone who really does know what she’s talking about. Luckily for us and them, these are the 1 in a hundred exception. Most people appreciate what she does.
What a month we’ve had! We have sold over 100 UltraStreams already. The really encouraging thing is how many of our orders come from people who have been approached by the big MLM electric ionizer company to buy a $4000 unit. These people have not taken the word of the salesman and have done their research. Well done!
I’m on a water binge. It may sound strange for someone but the other day i saw a video of an executive of another MLM water ionizer company and the guy in the video had DIET COKE on his desk! It got me thinking… how was my own water habit going> How often did coffee or tea take its place? So I’m back into it. Up to 3 litres today!
What is your experience at keeping up a good water habit?
PS: Many readers have asked me to update them on my latest blog posts. If you look to the right on this page they are all listed
South Korean police have caught two students selling diet pills. They bought them from a Chinese website.
Analysis of the pills found banned substances sibutramine, known to cause heart disease, and phenolpthalein. and – in every pill – 100% match on human flesh.
The search for greener, more power-efficient lighting systems won’t stop with compact fluorescents and LED systems if Dutch electronics giant Philips has anything to say about it. In an effort to embrace a truly natural approach to lighting, the company took a cue from fireflies and deep-sea creatures to create a (literally) green light powered not by electricity or sunlight, but by glowing bioluminescent bacteria.
I know the perfect place for it to blaze away happily; teenagers’ rooms.
Graham, our general manager, contributes to a health blog in the US. He posts to it just like this blog, and he includes many articles we have on file here in Australia. One such article was written by me about acidic or alkaline ‘personalities’ pointing out that calm people are usually more alkaline, and aggressive people more acidic. The first example of an acidic personality I suggested was the late Saddam Hussein. The second example was of an alkaline type; the Dalai Lama.
Now… up until now Graham has been getting wonderful comments on his articles. But when he added that George Bush was probably and acidic type (and really, folks, look at his diet!) Whaoh! the Americans did NOT like it, accusing him of ‘confusing politics with health’. Which brings me to this rather coincidental link comparing the way Americans think to Europeans.
Ok. Here’s another one. A ring of magnets implanted in your anus to prevent ‘accidents’.
So wise guys, what happens if the poor recipient sits on a metal seat? Or another magnet???
Why is it always the Japanese who invent these things? Last week I saw a Japanese attempt at a robotic guide dog. This week a robot to help dress old folks. Not in my lifetime!
The mind boggles at the vision of me as an an eighty year old getting out of bed, being greeted by a synthetic voice and manhandles into a Lowes’ tracksuit.
