How to Install Your Jacuzzi?

No thing can provide more comfort, after a hectic day workout, than relaxing in your Jacuzzi tub. And it would be a slicing on cake if available at home. You can install a jacuzzi with the help of an expert or you can do it at your own. Installing a jacuzzi is not an easy task and needs to be minutely taken care of for a number of things. A number of things needs to be determined before purchasing a jacuzzi. But we will not mention those points here. In this article, we will tell you what important things should be looked after while installing a jacuzzi.

1. Make the Floor Leveled: The floor at which the Jacuzzi bathtub is to be installed should be properly leveled. If the floor is uneven by a bit, you need to level the area in order to sit the tub. In case of uneven floor level you may run into lot of troubles, such as malfunctioning of drainage system and jets. The floor should be strong enough to support the weight of tub. Your floor needs to be able to support 150 lbs. per square foot.

2. Make a Stable Ground: The Jacuzzi bathtub is a heavy item even when it is empty. When filled with water and loaded with few person, it can go to almost 200 pounds per square foot. So the base area of the floor on which the Jacuzzi will rest should be made solid and stable. You need to pour one to two inch of thick layer of cement or mortar to support such huge weights.

3. Make a Supporting Frame: The bathtub should be supported along the entire length of the bottom and the rim. So the area supporting the bathtub should be framed. Some Jacuzzi units come along with frames. If the tub that you purchase is not pre-framed then either you can hire a carpenter to develop a frame or you can buy a ready made frame suiting your unit. It is important to remember that the frame should have an access panel to reach to the motor and pump in case of maintenance. Usually the bathtub manufacturer include the dimensions for the supporting enclosure.

4. For Wiring Contact an Experienced Electrician: Until and unless you are a certified electrician, you should not go for the electrical wiring part of Jacuzzi’s installation. Working with plumbing & electricity can be tricky business and even most experienced DIY homeowners opt for the services of a professional electrician or an experienced plumber or a general contractor with experience in Jacuzzi installation. Such type of work involves electricity in close proximity to water, the risk is pretty much enhanced.

5. You need to clean the construction area to remove all residues. Then you should check that all connections and fittings are secured. Fill the tub with water above the jets and check for leaks. The jets should be run for at least 15 minutes and check if any problem occurs fix it before closing the area.

Breast Reconstruction Prevents Loss Of Body Image After Mastectomy

By Abigail Aaronson

Breast reconstruction is the redesigning of the breast after a radical mastectomy due to cancer. Often, mastectomies are the only way to stop cancer from spreading. As a result of this procedure, women can lose part or full of one or both breasts.

This can lead to emotional turmoil to a vary special part of a woman’s body. This symbol of the maturity of a woman in western society, can produce anxiety and lead many women to depression if removed. However, with modern techniques, women suffering from mastectomies no longer have to suffer from the loss of their body image.

Breast reconstructions are performed by qualified plastic surgeons, who specialize in these procedures. These professionals must complete training beyond their medical education. Most complete a minimum of five years in an internship specializing in this area. Also, these surgeons work exclusively in accredited medical facilities.

The best way to find a qualified surgeon is through your primary care provider. Often, the woman will have been working with this primary provider (or even an oncologist) to address the cancer issue. This provider can be an asset in selecting the appropriate surgeon to complete the procedure.

There are several different types of procedures that can be used to reconstruct the breast. The first technique that was developed was the use of devices filled with silicone or saline. This procedure was exclusively used in the beginning. However, new technologies and techniques have been developed to use the woman’s own body tissue.

These techniques will use the actual skin, blood vessels, fat, and muscle of “donor” sites from around the body. These sites include the stomach (upper and lower), the upper back, and the buttocks region. These procedures can also be combined using the plastic inserts and donor sites for reconstructing the region. These procedures can be used for one or both organs.

Another option for reconstruction is remaking of the nipple and areola (the dark region surrounding the breast). These are not necessarily included in the procedures, but are often completed last. However, even though this procedure is optional, many women elect to have this surgery too because it makes the breast look more natural.

The trick in this type of procedure is matching the nipple with the other one. However, with the advent of new techniques, some surgeons are able to do nipple-sparing mastectomies. This saves the woman’s original nipple and the reconstruction is completed around this part. The benefit of this procedure is that it allows the surgeon to match both breasts for a more natural look.

Breast reconstructions can be done in single or double phase. In the single phase approach, the oncologist performing the mastectomy completes his portion of the procedure. Then, before the patient is brought out of anesthesia, the plastic surgeon reconstructs the breast. The benefit of this approach is that there is only one surgery to complete.

The double phase approach is just as it sounds. The organ is first removed and then the patient comes back in for the reconstruction. Whether you opt for the single or double phase may depend on the extensiveness of the cancer and the capability of your facility. Perhaps the hospital where your oncology surgeon performs does not have a plastic surgeon. These options, however, can be discussed further with your physician.

Even though radical mastectomies are major surgeries, they no longer have to be demoralizing like they were to our grandmothers. The new techniques are giving new life to women who have had cancer. Although the breast will not have the same sensation as the original, reconstruction can help a woman maintain her dignity.

Gunman on the loose in Melbourne

Monday, June 18, 2007

Police in Melbourne, Australia are on the hunt for a gunman who killed a man and injured two others in the city’s central business district this morning.

Officials warned all office workers to remain indoors, and train services to Flinders Street Station were temporarily on hold, as investigations were carried out on the intersection of Flinders Lane and William Street.

Malcom Bates, who witnessed the shootings at around 8:15 a.m., said the gunman grabbed a woman from inside a taxi. “The lady got away and he turned and shot three people basically point blank,” Mr Bates said. “I was right across the road”. He said that the incident took no longer than the “wink of an eye”.

Paramedics struggled to revive the one victim for almost an hour before declaring him dead at the scene. The two injured people have been taken to the Royal Melbourne Hospital in a critical condition.

Police believe the incident began at the Bar Code 24-hour bar in King Street, when a woman attempted to get into a taxi. She was apparently grabbed by the hair by the gunman who then shot her and two men who attempted to come to her aid.

Police have identified the gunman as Christopher Wayne Hudson, aged 29. They believe him to be a member of the Hells Angels bikie gang. Police have described Hudson as about 180 cm tall, with short brown hair and wearing a dark tracksuit top and dark denim jeans.

A building worker on a construction site on the corner of Queen and Flinders Streets has reportedly discovered a handgun. It is understood the gunman may have thrown the weapon into the site as he fled the scene.

The family of Amy Fitzpatrick, an Irish expat who disappeared from Mijas, Spain on New Year’s Night, has announced a reward for reliable information which could lead to finding the missing teenager. The news came in a statement from Dave Mahon, the partner of Amy’s mother, Audrey, who said all information would be treated in the strictest confidence, and calling on anyone who may have a possible lead to contact either the family or the Civil Guard. In the statement Mahon said that “a substantial reward is on offer to anyone who can provide reliable information on Amy’s whereabouts. Any information received will be treated within the strictest confidence.”

There has been no news on whether detectives have managed to locate a vehicle which they believe Amy may have taken, a British-registered white Ford Fiesta, with the registration number C955 SLK.

Gasoline pipeline explosion in Nigeria kills hundreds

Gasoline pipeline explosion in Nigeria kills hundreds
January 20th, 2017 in Uncategorized | No Comments

Tuesday, December 26, 2006

Reports say that hundreds of people are dead after a gasoline pipeline exploded in the northern suburbs of Lagos, Nigeria on Tuesday.

“Some of the bodies were so burnt that it would be difficult to recognize them as those of human beings,” said one Red Cross official, Kingsley Amori.

The Red Cross says that many of the victims can only be identified by looking at the remains of their skulls. Estimates suggest that 200-900 people were killed, and another 60 people received medical treatment.

“The bodies are scattered over the ground. We can’t get close enough because the fire is still burning. We cannot confirm how many hundreds were killed.” said secretary-general of the Nigerian Red Cross, Ige Oladimeji.

The explosion is believed to have been caused by vandalization in the pipeline. Reports say that thieves used a drill to punch a hole in the pipeline in order to steal gasoline, which is sold on the black market.

Fuel was being pumped into the pipes to be distributed for consumer use when it exploded. The pipeline is operated by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, which is owned by the State of Nigeria. Workers have stopped pumping fuel through the pipelines.

Six killed in UK car crash
January 15th, 2017 in Uncategorized | No Comments

Saturday, February 14, 2009

A car crash on the A614 road, in Nottinghamshire, England has killed six people, all of whom are believed to have lived near the scene of the crash.

All six victims died at the scene of the crash, which involved four young adults in a Peugeot 206 and two elderly people, possibly a male and female, who police believe to be in their 60s, in the other car said to be a Ford Fiesta. Rescue workers fought to save the one of the elderly individuals, but were unsuccessful. Both vehicles collided head-on and exploded upon colliding.

Two police officers on traffic patrol discovered the crash, which took place at 23:00 local time (UTC) yesterday. The officers involved were praised by Bruce Cameron, a superintendent for Nottinghamshire Police. “The bodies are very badly burnt and they will have to be identified using dental records. We want to make sure we are absolutely certain as to who was in both cars when the accident happened,” he said.

Local residents say that the A614 has been the scene of a large number of accidents. One resident, Stuart Stonebridge, told The Daily Telegraph that “we only moved here three years ago and there have been a lot of accidents and some fatalities in that time,” while another resident, Janice Gilbody said that “the people of Bilsthorpe will be in shock, horror and disbelief at the young lives lost.”

Gilbody also said that this accident is “yet again another accident on this road.” She then added that the road was dangerous, saying that “it’s a wonder it doesn’t happen more often.”

The cause of the crash is still under investigation, but police say weather was not a contributing factor.

New York Counselor

by

Linda Cooper

Advice or help dealing with a certain situation in the home, workplace or at school; regardless of what kind of help you may need, consulting a New York counselor is a good place to start. There is no harm or shame in asking for some help, or even just some advice from someone who may be able to help you out. Knowledgeable in their area and more than happy to offer help on a wide variety of topics, counselors are the people to go to when looking to make any changes in your life, all one has to do is ask.

Consulting a counselor can offer you the opportunity to exchange ideas and opinions that can help you to figure out what your next step in life is going to be. You are probably thinking that the only professionals who can help you out are the trained ones that have gone through their bit at university, while they can be of help there are others you can look to depending on what kind of advice and/or help you are looking for.

For instance, some New York professionals can take different forms, such as experienced teachers, clergy and even parents, friends and other relatives. If you are looking for advice in a particular field, you could always ask someone experienced in that field. For example, if you are interested in eventually becoming a lawyer, then who better to ask about the job than a real lawyer? It doesn’t matter what field you are thinking of going into, there are always willing people out there who would be more than happy to offer advice and suggestions based on the kind of job they do.

If you are looking for someone that deals more in psychology, then seeing a New York counseling psychologist would probably be the best idea. You should feel confident in the New York therapist you have decided to see.

If you are not so sure about it, just remember what these professionals had to do in order to practice in the field they do. They had to go through many years of school and study before they could practice on their own, and diagnose and properly treat the problems their patients may have. To earn their degree they even had to intern to be sure they could practice their profession properly before they could practice on their own.

It is through all this education, which takes a lot of hard work and effort that they learn how to handle their patients. Once they have earned their degree and are ready to practice on their own, they will go on to help their patience to deal with their issues, to help their patients deal with their situation as well as to help them improve their lives.

New York therapists can be found in different places. Some will work in and with different institutions, depending on what area of psychiatric profession they decided to go into. Some will work as social workers offering psychiatric help to whoever needs it, while others will practice as an independent professional.

There are also New York therapists who work in schools, in different businesses, in government institutions, in universities, youth centers and human service agencies. Regardless of where they work, most will have earned a master’s degree before they were qualified to work and help people.

They can help with all kinds of issues, including family issues, marital issues, drug and alcohol problems and even those who are going through rehabilitation.

Depending on what area the New York counselor is focused in, they may find the best ways to help their patients deal with their issues and their particular situations.

In the end, the New York counselor wants to help the individual through whatever it is that they need help with, and they will try their best to give the best support and treatment necessary. It, however, all depends on what kind of help that their patient needs, as well as what it is that their patient is going through.

For someone looking for a New York counselor who can help them properly, it would benefit them to do a little searching. If one needs help, they need to find a professional who they not only feel comfortable with, but who will be of most help to them.

This could mean finding a counselor who is of a certain gender, or has certain views on life and so on. It may seem silly at first, but commonalities between the counselor and patient can go a long way in helping to establish a connection.

The stronger the connection and the more a patient feels their New York counselor understands, the more likely the individual will be open and patient with their chosen counselor.
