    The pulp is the hollow inner core of the tooth that contains nerves, blood vessels, connective tissue and reparative cells (see Figure 1). In children, dental caries (cavities) and traumatic injury are the two main indications for pulpal therapy (also known as -paediatric root canal,- -pulpotomy- or -pulpectomy-). The primary objective of pulpal therapy is to maintain the integrity and health of the teeth and supporting tissues; thus, its treatment objective is to maintain the vitality of the pulp of a tooth affected by caries or traumatic injury.

    In young permanent teeth with immature roots, the pulp is important for the continuation of apexogenesis (the continuation of the closure of the tip of the root, or apex, as the child gets older). Long-term retention of a permanent tooth requires a root with a favourable crown/root ratio and dentinal walls that are thick enough to withstand normal function. Therefore, pulp preservation is the primary goal for the treatment of young permanent dentition. A tooth without a vital pulp, however, can still remain clinically functional.

    The vitality of the pulp is the most important focus of a dental examination and check-up because it is the basis of the indications, objectives and type of pulpal therapy that will be used. The pulp may be classified as normal (i.e., symptom free and with normal response to vitality testing), with reversible pulpitis (i.e., the pulp is capable of healing), with symptomatic or asymptomatic irreversible pulpitis (i.e., vital inflamed pulp is incapable of healing), or necrotic pulp.

    The clinical diagnosis is derived from a comprehensive review of the medical and dental history, including current symptoms and chief complaint; subjective evaluation of the area associated with the current symptoms/chief complaint, which is accomplished by questioning the child and parent(s) on the location, intensity, duration, stimulus, relief and spontaneity of pain;

    objective extraoral examination and intraoral soft and hard tissue examination; radiograph(s) to diagnose pulpitis or necrosis showing the involved tooth, furcation, periapical area and the surrounding bone; and clinical tests such as palpation, percussion and mobility.

    A treatment plan should include the following:

    1. The patient’s medical history

    2. The value of each involved tooth in relation to the child’s overall development

    3. Alternatives to pulp treatment

    4. Restorability of the tooth.

    Your career should be in a field that you look forward to working in everyday, and it should challenge you while providing opportunities for you to grow. It should also be able to provide for you and your family. If for some reason your current state of employment does not meet this criterion, you should consider a career change. One area offering employment that is both rewarding and fulfilling is the medical field.

    The medical world is currently experiencing a severe shortage of qualified workers, and is desperate to hire individuals with the right experience and certification. Unfortunately, most people dont think that they possess the proper credentialsin fact, the majority of people dont attempt a career in the field of medicine simply for that reason. Meanwhile, there are approximately 78 million baby boomers about to retire, all of whom are aging, increasing the need for medical attention at a rapid rate.

    According to the World Health Organization, the aging of the baby boomer is only one reason for the shortage of healthcare workers that the nation is experiencing. Other influential reasons include the aging of the current healthcare workers, and the lack of employees in fields related to the medical industry. These employees arent limited to nurses, pharmacists and doctors. The shortage applies to cleaners, cooks, and bookkeepersor any other field related to the medical world (i.e. required to make medical operations run smoothly). The problem is that once there is a shortage in one field, there is trouble in all of the fields (meaning the shortage affect everyone, regardless of profession), causing the entire medical net to be unstable in both its presentation and delivery to patients.

    One particular example to draw upon are medical nurses. One of the greatest shortages lies in the nursing field, which comprises almost 10% of the entire medical world. Such a shortage could lead to poorly educated patients and the negligent care of sick individuals. Facing something like that is scary, which is why many institutions are offering higher salaries and greater benefits to their employees. So people looking to change career fields are wise to consider investing some research into the completion of a medically related career. From pharmacy technician training to studying to become a personal support worker (PSW), there is a great number of different medical careers.

    Taking PSW courses is a great field to get into, and can help you get started in your medical career. Much like nursing, personal support workers help safeguard the rights of the elderly or impairedit is a career that has much to offer in terms of both tangible and intangible rewards. Regardless of the field you choose, consider the medical industry before making a final decision. You might be surprised at the opportunity that awaits you.

    Years ago, when cinema first became popular, for a lot of people it was the only way for them to see movies, because most of them didn’t have their own televisions. The thing is though, cinema has always had a much better quality viewing experience than home televisions, so it has remained the ultimate way to experience a movie.

    The Invention of Video Tapes

    For a long time, the one problem with both cinema and TV is that you needed to watch a film at a specific time. With the invention of home video systems such as VHS and Betamax, movie fans were able to either record films from the TV or rent films from a video library. However, there was still the problem of quality, as cinema was still a far superior experience than watching a video at home.

    The Rise of DVDs

    Part of the quality issue was dramatically improved with the invention of the DVD. DVD meant that anyone could watch very high quality digital video at home. Unlike VHS tapes for example, DVDs didnt wear out or degrade over time, as long as you didnt get the discs scratched. From the 1990’s onwards, DVDs became extremely popular amongst movie fans. The only problem was, unless you had an extremely large TV screen and a very expensive sound system, you still wouldn’t get the same experience as the cinema.

    The Experience of Home Cinema

    Nowadays, the true home cinema experience is becoming much more of a reality for many people, as they buy large widescreen TVs and high quality speakers. For example, with a plasma TV screen of 50 inches or more, and being sat closer to the screen than you would be in a cinema, youre going to get a very cinematic feel. And you wont miss having someone sat behind you who wont stop talking through every scene.

    Reasons to Visit the Cinema

    However, even with home cinema quality jumping forwards in leaps and bounds, dont you think theres still something missing? Theres just something about actually going out to the cinema. It gives you a reason to spend time with your friends and experience something together. And lets face it: in all honesty, the experience at home really isnt quite as good as the full blown cinema experience, is it?

    Why You Should Still Stay at Home Instead

    The only problem with visiting the cinema is that it costs you more money than it does to just stay at home with a DVD. But also, when you’re at home, you can fit your movie watching around the other things you want to do. You can also eat your own food. Just relax and watch your favourite movie while eating your dinner.

    Craniofacial therapy is a type of massage therapy that grew out of osteopathy, the ancient art of bone setting. The practitioner uses specific techniques, along with presence, where sacred space is held by means of mindful awareness for healing. The subtle art of precise and gentle touch is applied to correct imbalances in the fluid and membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord. This allows the client to achieve releases from tension throughout the entire body, bringing about relief from physical pain, and with that bringing a restoration of clarity.

    Craniofacial therapy is a viable tool for healing of many medical problems and is routinely used as a preventive health measure, as it increases the bodys ability to fight off many ailments.

    Another extraordinary quality of visionary craniofacial therapy is it has the ability to touch the depths of one’s being and find access to a greater sense of clarity, serenity, dealing effectively with old habits and patterns. This includes the communities of chiropractors, massage therapists, kinesiology practitioners, reflexology practitioners, dentists, etc. These practitioners may have a gift in this modality and if they do the results can be extraordinary to say the very least.

    Massage in itself is a healing process, in that when you are finished with an hour or even half hour session you will be in a place both physically and mentally to heal from the wounds that you suffer from. Massage is generally accepted and blessed now by the medical community as a form of holistic healing, because it is hugely difficult for medicine to prove that massage doesnt promote healing. In fact, quite the opposite. Massage therapy is a form of healing, and if you have ever had a sports injury or automobile injury and used massage to help you come back from it, you agree 100% that its really fantastic.

    The King of Prussia major league soccer team is one such benefactor in sports massage is their way of helping muscles get to the point of relaxation to the point that healing is increased in both effectiveness and depth. This is further proof that massage therapy in the area of sports healing is going to grow today and long term.

    Things that can advance massage therapy efficiency are aromatherapy, relaxation techniques, and reiki type activity. Anything that can promote the state of relaxation is only going to increase the effect of the massage, releasing more toxins, and allowing the patient to even reach a state of higher consciousness.

    CANNES – A documentary using small clay figurines to tell the story of how Cambodian filmmaker Rithy Panh’s family perished under the Khmer Rouge regime won the top prize in the second most important competition at the Cannes film festival on Saturday.

    L’Image Manquante (The Missing Picture) was among the 18 films that premiered in the Un Certain Regard category that was set up to encourage emerging and innovative filmmakers and run alongside the main competition at the world’s top film festival.

    Panh, 49, a prolific filmmaker whose films concentrate on the brutality in Cambodia when an estimated 1.7 million people were killed during the 1975-79 Khmer Rouge regime, said the prize was important for his country.

    For a country that has emerged from its difficulties and years of war, it is important to say we are still alive,” Panh told Reuters after receiving his award at a red carpet ceremony in the French Riviera resort.

    The jury led by Danish director Thomas Vinterberg, whose film Jagten (The Hunt) won Mads Mikkelsen the best actor award at Cannes last year, described the documentary as one of the most powerful films I have seen in many years”.

    The runner-up was Omar by Palestinian director Hany Abu-Assad, a political thriller involving Palestinians living under Israeli occupation in which a young baker, Omar, is tortured by Israel’s secret police to betray his friends.

    Omar, which was shot in the West Bank and Israeli-Arab town of Nazareth last year, received a standing ovation at its premiere as the first film fully funded by the Palestinian cinema industry.

    It is the only festival that I think still cares about different films,” said Abu-Assad, known for the 2005 award-winning film Paradise Now, as he received his award.

    Another director in Un Certain Regard to get a standing ovation was Iran’s Mohammad Rasoulof who was jailed in 2010 for anti-regime propaganda but came to Cannes this year with Manuscripts Don’t Burn, shot in secret in his home country.

    The non-professional actors of La Jaula de Oro (The Golden Cage), a film about three young Guatemalans trying to cross the Mexico-U.S. border from director Diego Quemada-Diez won an award for best cast.

    Over time, skin loses its stretch, that elasticity which causes it to sag. Sometimes it occurs after a severe weight loss, like pregnancy or a crash diet. There is no way to stop this but you can try some things to help slow it down. Here are a few tips to help you firm sagging skin naturally after it has already started.

    After you shower each day, give yourself a full body massage with some good moisturizer or coconut oil. They are not only good for your skin, but they help the blood circulation in your body and that will help to tighten up muscles, which works on the tissues and finally making the skin look better.

    Remember mom always telling you to take your vitamins? Well here is another reason to start; they can help prevent skin from sagging. Vitamin A is reported to maintain skin tissues and in some cases repair it. You can get enough in your diet naturally by eating foods like eggs and liver, drinking some whole milk also. And don’t forget Vitamin B, not only does this help to prevent swelling and irritation of the skin, but research is showing that it can slow down aging, which can stop that skin from sagging to begin with.

    Exercise doesn’t only firm up the muscles but can firm up the skin too, especially after a weight loss. As you tighten up the muscles, the tissue will tighten and eventually the skin. You can also do facial exercises to take care of that skin sagging under the chin. Not only will you look better, but you’ll feel better too.

    It’s been reported over and over again; drink your water, preferably eight glasses a day. This doesn’t only give you energy, but it keeps skin hydrated, giving you healthier looking skin. Wrinkles and skin that sags look much worse on someone that is dehydrated. And, dehydration will speed up the again process.

    Prevention is the best natural cure to this though. Taking care of your skin with a good skin regimen will pay off as you get older. Eating a good balanced diet not only makes you healthier but makes your skin healthier also; especially omega 3 fatty acids that can be found in cod or fish oil. And don’t forget the sun screen. You know how damaging the sun is to skin already, and it just makes everything look worse and dries it out more when it is unprotected.

    Although you can walk into any store today and find rows of different creams to try or find a doctor to perform surgery, it is best to try to firm sagging skin naturally first. A few changes in your way of life can add years to your life and your skin. Eating healthy and exercise are just a few things you can do to help look young and healthy, no matter how old you are.

    One thing that a lot of people don’t know is that non-profit organizations can apply for and receive government grants. This is a major source of funding for lots of non-profits. Since non-profit have a lot of volunteers their overhead is usually a lot less than the typical for profit business. One non profit recently applied for and received a large government grant to improve their equine therapy center. The people at this center use horses to help both disabled children and disabled veterans improve the quality of their lives. The government grants they received will help them buy more land and more horses. It also went to help with the maintenance of the entire facility. I was informed that in the next year they will apply for six more grants.

    One thing that they and many people find very helpful is to have a professional grant writer. Grant writing can at times be very frustrating and time consuming. Grant writing has become a very competitive field and there are a lot of professional grant writers available. A lot of non-profits don’t have the extra funds to hire a professional grant writer. In these cases many grant writers will offer their services at a reduced rate. If a grant writer does require payment for their services there are different ways to pay them.

    One way to pay a grant writer is to make the payment continent on getting the grant awarded. Then the grant writer is given a percentage of the grant that is awarded. This is where things can get a little tricky. The organization needs to come up with a percentage that is fair to the organization and to the grant writer too. This type of pay arrangement is sometimes troubling to a lot of the agencies that give out money. The grant money is earmarked for a specific purpose and not to pay for the services of a grant writer. This could cause some problems getting government grants. Its a lot of peoples opinion that grant writers should be paid a one time fee and or an hourly wage. Either way its a better practise than going the contingent pay option. The hourly wage or flat fee method of payment for grant writers is better for them too. Not all grants are awarded. It would be an awful lot of work to write a grant and then not be paid due to reasons that are beyond the grant writers control.

    There are a number of developmental, cognitive and intellectual aberrations that may present with difficulties in learning capabilities and school performance. Healthcare providers suggest early identification and appropriate management or training can lead to absolutely normal or near normal development in children that does not interfere with personal, social and occupational aspects of life in adulthood.

    Improper pencil grip is the leading cause of poor handwriting as a result of impaired motor skills. It has been observed that development of pencil grip and good hand-writing is an automatic reflex that develops during the early years of schooling; however, in some children this reflex is significantly impaired. There are a number of parameters that are used by educators and teachers to determine the hand-writing and pencil grip in school- aged children as young as 9 to 10 years. The parameters like use of appropriate spacing between letters and words, accuracy of letter formation, legibility, letter size uniformity, letter slant, and alignment of words on the sheet are used as important tool in the assessment of improper pencil grip in children.

    Research conducted by Carter and Synolds suggested that the majority of the children with handwriting abnormalities develop symptoms of learning disabilities in coming years.

    Colleen M. Schneck conducted a research study on 60 school-aged children to assess the handwriting skills in accordance with the pencil grip and identified that the children who presented with poor handwriting also performed poorly at pencil gripping test (drawing tasks) and also manifested symptoms of impaired proprioceptive-kinesthetic awareness (impaired hand preference and perception of pencil and paper and distance of pencil from paper).

    Research conducted by Benbow suggests that the position of head and distance of the writing surface from eyes plays a very important role in the development of improper grip. He explained that if the actual cause is not identified at an early age, the chances are high that the developmental disabilities or learning deficits may go unnoticed or misdiagnosed, affecting the entire life of the child. Benbow coined the term somesthetic feedback that is a form of visual compensation as the distance between the eyes and writing surface is very little, leading to fatigued visual input.

    Research conducted by Laszlo and Bairstow suggested that children are unable to master their writing skills and proprioceptive-kinesthetic ability (the response of joints to the movements performed by fingers) until at least 6 years of age; but various simple tasks can help in early determination of impaired writing skills. For example an inability to color within boundaries or the inability to build blocks suggests a sluggish proprioceptive-kinesthetic capacity.

    Laszlo suggests that assessment of such children in second standard is very helpful in reaching to a diagnosis to establish if the child needs therapy or mere lifestyle modification is enough. Occupational therapy is helpful in all such children as the trained therapists can identify and diagnose improper pencil grip reflex earlier than the healthcare providers and advise therapies for treatment.

    Dumbo the elephant had really big ears that he used to fly with. When you think of Dumbo, you think of ears. However, some people also have big ears and, unfortunately, theyre not happy with the way they look. This is reinforced by kids on the playground who call them Dumbo, after that fictional elephant. There is an answer, however. If you have big ears and are tired of being compared to a flying elephant, you should seek out the services of a cosmetic ear surgeon.

    Cosmetic ear surgery is a very popular surgery because many people are unhappy with how their ears look. Either theyre too big or too small, they hang down to low or maybe they stick out too much. Cosmetic ear surgery can be the answer for those who hate going out in public because theyre afraid people are staring at their ears.

    Do Your Research

    Make sure that you research both the surgery and the doctor before you have the surgery performed. You should have realistic expectations. Cosmetic ear surgeons arent miracle workers but they can improve the look of your ears if youre unhappy about them. You should research the doctor to make sure he or she is qualified to perform cosmetic ear surgery. Sometimes, doctors will call themselves cosmetic surgeons when theyre not really qualified, or certified, at all. There are many people out there who would gladly take advantage of someone who desperately wants change, no matter if they know what theyre doing or not.

    However, this, of course, isnt the case for every cosmetic ear surgeon. Just do your homework. Look for examples of previous surgeries that that particular surgeon has performed before and seek testimonials. Once youre sure about the doctor, schedule an exam.

    At your initial exam, your cosmetic ear surgeon will examine your ears and will hear what you have to say and what exactly you dont like about them. Sometimes, the doctor will determine that your expectations are unrealistic or that your insecurities are mainly all in your head. In cases such as these, the doctor will often refuse to perform the surgery. However, if the doctor thinks that the surgery can be performed to your satisfaction, then its time to schedule the surgery appointment.

    Cosmetic ear surgery is for those who are unhappy with their ears. Big ears may have worked for a fictional elephant but they have no place in todays self conscious world. Seek a cosmetic ear surgeon and get that pair of ears youve always wanted.
