Penile Technology

Man fulfills his true definition of man by the satisfaction he gives to a woman.
The Big Daddy of the male genitalia is the penis. Little boys describe it as a means by which urine leaves the body but as they grow into men, they take pride in the penis as copulatory organ.
Some say the penis size does not matter because the vagina is an accommodating hostess, but rare is the man who thinks his penis is big enough, and rare too is the woman who disagrees. That’s why we have urologists who perform operations to enhance the penis.
Penile technology can lengthen the penis for three-eight’s of an inch to two inches, depending on the patient. The suspensory muscles hold the penis close to the body with no blood vessels or nerves cut.
Say’s Waldermar Alarkon, A psychiatrist, “Penile Technology… is the modern techniques in penile management and economics, and is a blend of the physician’s expertise and skill, plus the patient and partner understanding the desire.”
Definitely, it appraises patients with erectile dysfunction, and gives therapeutic decisions parallel to a conceptual modern diagnostic plan. Urologists determine whether the major disorder is impotence (inability to have erection), or the sexual dysfunction such as premature ejaculation or concerns regarding orgasm.
During the first visit a “goal-oriented therapeutic treatment plan is made. The plan involves the patient’s sexual partner. It is important that the partner understands each of the therapeutic choices including the expectations and complications.
According to Doctors Ronald Lewis and David Barrett, the major goal choices of patients with impotence are : 1) accepting the loss of vaginal penetration with a rigid penis and using alternative sexual gratification methods (which urologist fail to mention) 2) medical therapy 3) psychological sex therapy counseling 4) vacuum/ constriction devices which are an option for almost any type of dysfunction except for very rare circumstances 5) home pharmacological injections programs 6) penile prostheses and 7) vascular surgery.
Medical Management
If the patient gives a history of partial erectile dysfunction, and describes decreased libido or manifestations of thyroid, adrenal, or pituitary symptoms, then appropriate laboratory tests can verify the diagnosis of a disorder.
However, those who elect to go on intermittent injection therapy with parenteral testosterone should be followed every six months with a repeat prostatic specific antigen and rectal evaluation of the prostate.
Psychological Counseling
Almost every organically-based male erectile dysfunction patient will also have psychological overtones. It is often wise to have sexual counseling for the couple and use of the expertise of a sexual therapist in the treatment of all forms of male erectile dysfunction. If psychogenic impotence is thought to be the major cause of the patient’s impotence, the use of nocturnal penile tumescence (NPT) is recommended. “We feel that a good history and physical, as well as response to a pharmacologic erectile agent are steps that often preclude nocturnal penile erectile monitoring, ” Lewis says.
Vacuum Constriction Devices
The patient and his partners must be carefully instructed in the use of vacuum devices. Options should be available to seek further advise is the are not initially satisfied. Patient must also understand that ” erection obtained with this devise is full penile engagement, limited to the pendulous penis beyond the constriction band, therefore, it is not fixed. Also0, the penis will become slightly cold and bluish in color. Some patients dislike the lace of spontaneity of sexual intercourse with the use of these devises. For the most part though, satisfaction has been high for patients who have chosen these devices .
Pharmacologic Injection Therapy
The use of intracavernous pharmacological agents for the diagnosis and management of male erectile dysfunction has become extremely a commonplace. The agents most commonly used are papaverine with or without phentolomine and prostaglandin E-1 -PGE-1) or a combination of 3. “The penis erect for 30 minutes, 1 hour, or 2 hours depending on the dosage used, ” Dr Jaime Jorge of Mary Chiles Hospital relates.
Mandatory close follow-up of the patient ensures that any erection persisting for longer than two to four hours will be reversed with pharmacological antidotes. However, Dr. Jerry Santos of the UST Hospital says that priapism (painful erection of the penis might occur. “With this, gauge needle is inserted into the base of the penis to draw off 20-30 ml of blood.”
Penile Prosthesis
Placement of penile prosthesis for treatment of male erectile dysfunction has been very popular in the United States. The first completely rigid prosthetics were followed by semi-rigid devises, and finally various inflatable (hydraulic) devises. Modern penile prosthesis consist of two makor types of devices: semi-rigid and inflatable. The semi-rigid devices currently available are solid silicone cylinders with some type of metallic core or a cable connected interlocking plastic component system covered by a synthetic covering. The inflatable …

Biosphere Technology – The Greatest Innovation in Green Technologies

Green technologies for more than a century today have been our greatest weapons towards saving planet earth. Comprehensive environmental awareness campaigns have been launched all over the world to inform people of the different ecological benefits of using green energy. But all efforts seem to be not enough because brown energy technologies that desecrate the sanctity of the environment are still reigning supreme in the energy industry. Oil and coal still supply most of the world’s energy needs. Unfortunately, coal and oil are also the leading in the release of carbon gases into the atmosphere.
The primary reason why coal and oil are still the most widely used energy sources is because they have remained unrivaled in terms of efficiency for ages now. Efficiency has also been what held green technologies like solar power, wind power, biomass power, and hydro power back. Most green energies cannot even fully sustain a consumer’s needs. They often need additional sources as supplement to suffice. And obviously, people prefer efficient forms of energy even if they harm the environment rather than green technologies that help preserve nature but are incapable of meeting their demands.
Finally, there is a green technology that has the potential to surpass even coal and oil when it comes to efficiency. This revolutionary process is called biosphere technology. Biosphere technology involves the use of biosphere machines to convert solid wastes into energy in the form of electricity. Biosphere technology qualified as a green technology because of the fact that a biosphere machine subjects the feedstock under the biosphere gasification process inside tightly closed, oxygen limited containers thus greatly limiting the release of carbon gases into the atmosphere. The Biosphere MKV brought into the Philippines by Ronald Shane Flynn has broken records and is now recognized as the most efficient and most environment friendly technology. Its efficiency is represented by the fact than it can convert a maximum of 97% of the weight of the wastes into energy and more than 90% of the remaining by-products can be further processed to become resalable in the market. Its ecological friendliness on the other hand, is proven by the fact that during the entire waste-to-energy conversion process, only around 2% greenhouse gas emissions are produced. Biosphere technology is so environment-friendly it can even be classified as a carbon offset solution.
Biosphere technology not only prevents future air pollution, it also eliminates current land pollution because of the fact that it uses solid wastes for fuel. A single biosphere facility can convert the trash found in entire landfills into commercial electricity. Governments and organizations therefore now have one more reason to destroy waste, and that is to gain electrical power.
Biosphere technology also entails a more stable economy due to oil independence. Biosphere energy is a stand-alone form of energy, meaning it does not need to be supplemented by other forms of energy to meet the demands of consumers. Thus, a country with adequate amounts of biosphere facilities and machines no longer need to import oil to fuel their industries. The said countries then are no longer significantly affected by fluctuations in the price of oil in the global market.…

Wireless in Local Loop [WLL] Emerging Technology

Reasons of Using WLL

Any service provider or organization should strive to provide high quality service in the most economic method available to end-user, the customer.

Telecommunication is no exception and therefore, it is necessary to keep abreast of Technology advancements and innovations to provide the best quality of service at lowest cost possible to the subscriber.

In the last 20-30 years, we have seen switching equipment move from manual boards, Magneto exchanges, strowger etc, to the sophisticated Electronic SPC Switches now in use, viz E-10B, OCB-283 & EWSD etc.

Transmission technology has also advanced, thus far to optical Fibre Cable, Microwave Radio, Satellites Communications etc, and is continuously developing.

The local external Network or the local loop also needs adoption of new techno logies, as it is this part of Telecom Network which accounts for approximately 60% of the total cost of whole, Telecom network. By embracing newer technology in the External Plant, we can maintain a high QOS (Quality of service) and reduce the cost to the subscriber. This means we can offer “Voice and Data Communication” to a much greater percentage of the population, previously denied access (for reasons of insufficient disposable Income) to telephone, Fax and Internet Services etc.

This may be illustrated by:

The average household income in India permits affordable expenditure on Telecommunication services, apportioned across the population, as follows:

Average Affordable expenditure on Telecomm Services

By percentage of population

Rs. 120 per month

25 %

Rs. 160 per month

15 %

Rs. 200 per month

10 %

Rs. 400 per month

5 %

Rs.1000 per month

2 %

And also, the total investment required to install a telephone with conventional Wire Line technology, is approximately Rs.30,000/- to Rs.35,000/-. Looking at the above data/figures, it is evident that cost reduction in the external plant part of Telecom Network is very much essential.

The Radio in local loop, i.e. wireless in Local Loop, if not better service, than Wire Line or Landline, but is an equivalent local loop service compared to wire line services and at lower cost.

The economics of wire line versus wireless are

The cost of installing or Maintaining Wire line systems broadly depends on the cost of Labour (Laying Ducts, digging Manholes) whereas cost of wire less depends on cost of subscriber unit, which tends to fall over time, with increasing economies of scale.

Cost of wire line is more due to use of copper a costly metal in U/G cables whereas WLL is independent of this factor.

Cost of wire line system critically depends on the distance between houses and the penetration levels achieved. These factors are not applicable in WLL.

If a subscriber moves to a different operator in case of wire line system, the investment is lost, whereas in the case of WLL, the subscriber unit in such case is simply removed and installed elsewhere.

The cost of wire line system is incurred, even prior to Marketing to the users, whereas much of the cost of WLL is not incurred until the users subscribe the Network.

The widely used WLL systems are:

corDECT WLL: This is digitally enhanced cordless Telecommunication

The standard is defined by ETSI (European Telecommunication Standard Institute).

CDMA – WLL: An American System as per IS-95.

Requirements for a Wireless Local Loop System

The WLL must provide all services supported by the wired local loop with the same or better quality.

A Wireless Local Loop (WLL) system is meant as a replacement for the traditional copper twisted-pair local loop. The WLL system is expected to provide a superior alternative to buried cable. The main purpose of the WLL system is to substitute a wired local loop for providing fixed telephone access. The WLL must, in general, provide all services supported today by the wired local loop, and also those, that are likely to emerge in the near future. Further, it must provide these with the same, or better, quality.

The requirements of a WLL system can be broadly divided into five categories: services, capacity, PSTN connectivity, cost and maintainability.…

Spy Technology: How To Be A Spy

One may wonder what problems there are that could be solved by using surveillance equipment. Some think that these things can be used inappropriately or unethically. But if used legally and in good conscience, you can gather solid legal evidence for yourself, easily. For instance, you can use spying tech to hide cameras around your home for protection. If you live in an area with any crime, you can use information you have gathered to catch a criminal. Or, have slightly smaller issues around the house? Using hidden video surveillance can help you uncover who has been eating all the cookies, leaving the lights on, or anything you can imagine!
Another technology you can use to spy on others is audio technology. This can be very useful to monitor what goes in and out of your house. There have been cases where a hidden recorder has been placed in the phone of another spouses, leading to catching adultery in the act. Having this kind of evidence would continue its legal use, as it may help your case in a divorce battle. Monitoring one’s kids may also be something for a home spy to consider. If you are finding it difficult to find out where your child is going or what they may be doing, information gathered from a phone conversation will be able to provide you with the peace of mind that you know what they are getting into.
With the Internet so easily accessible, along with its plethora of adult related content and other things one may not want their kids to see, monitoring the home computer is very important. This is an example of how spy technology can be used in a very productive way to ensure your family’s safe usage of the Internet. If you have physical access to the computer, you may plant a key-logger between the keyboard and the computer itself. This will tell you everything that is typed into the computer. Other, more sophisticated computer spy-ware is available, but it may take an expert user or technician to run properly.
One last readily useful surveillance device one can use is a GPS tracker. Parents may find these useful to be able to check on the location of their kids at anytime. The most basic of these devices are small, looking like a thumb drive. Once placed, or hidden, in a car, they can then be removed and hooked up to a computer. Then, the device will provide a map and route of everywhere that car went that day. Smaller things include that which you can hide within a mobile device. The latter being useful to know exactly where the person was that day.
The uses for home spying equipment are almost endless. But, one must always make sure not to break privacy laws or invade privacy. These things must be used only for personal use and very ethically. Once you are assured that you are within the law and are acting legally, it is time become a real spy!…

Increase Brain Power With Brainwave Technology

The human mind is very crucial for effective body functioning. It controls all aspects of your body. Instructions to body cell operations originate from your mind and the failure of the mind to issue instructions to body cells results in undesirable outcomes. People who have brain dysfunctions or those whose brain power is low have been labeled names that are not amusing at all. It is very possible for an individual to change or improve the power of his or her mind towards personal development. If you can manage to increase brain power, you can be sure that you will smoothly take the road to success in life. This may involve engaging your mind in disciplines helpful in mind evolution.
Scientists have researched and found out that man underutilizes the brain, estimating that 33 percent of the human brain is utilized leaving out a whole 67 percent unutilized. They have further revealed that genius people use slightly more brain as compared to other normal people. Genius brain usage is slightly above 33 percent. This explains why geniuses are more innovative and creative compared to other people using only 33 percent of their brain.
Every person desires to increase brain power. Several ways exist to help you increase mind power, but experts advice that anyone seeking the utilization of a certain method to increase mind power should seek professional advice and guidance. This is so because some methods especially where drugs are involved can turn out to be harmful if not properly applied. One of the methods to increase brain power that require monitoring by professionals is antidepressant which involve chemicals that, if not well administered, may cause addiction. However safe the method might appear from the outside, thorough research is needed before one starts using the method of his or her choice.
Brainwave entrainment has been known for having no adverse after-effect and this has made the technique gain popularity among most people. Binaural beats have been widely used to increase brain power and the outcomes of this mind power technique have been quite desirable. There are numerous mind power techniques, but this technique has proved so perfect in its functionality as well as outcome. The method employs the use of certain beat frequencies in soothing and slipping the human mind into various states of mind. The mind states include alpha, beta and theta all of which respond to stimulus differently. For example, the alpha state of mind helps a person in maintaining consciousness as well as focus mostly associated with creativity and attention or concentration. Theta states are mostly associated with matters to do with the soul and spirit.
Brainwave technology has been specially designed for enhancing a relaxed as well as stress-free environment for people. To get the best results, consistency in use of brainwave entrainment method of increasing brain power is emphasized. People who employ the technique sparingly are unlikely to get the benefits they desire. If you really wish to increase brain power with reliability and safety, brainwave entrainment will serve you best.…

Rocker Technology: The Latest in Comfort Footwear

Rocker technology is all the rage in athletic shoes right now. They are recognized as having a curved rocker shape on the soles of the shoes. These shoes are being advertised heavily, and bought, because they promote great health habits. There are lots of TV commercials showing runners and walkers moving along with ease because they are wearing their rocker shoes. And yes, it’s true that these shoes, for the most part, deliver for runners and walkers. But they have built in advantages for nursing shoes also.
First, rocker shoes are comfortable. This is of the utmost importance for the nurse who is working a 12 hour shift. Imagine having to walk up and down the halls of the hospital, back and forth, all day and night for 12 hours. Even if you subtract breaks, the nurse will do many miles of walking during one of their shifts. Even if they get to sit down at the nurses station, rocker shoes help. Traditional shoes would absorb all of the weight and the shock of the body, even when someone is sitting down. With rocker nursing shoes, the feet will have a cushion by way of the high insoles, and the high rocker sole. The curvature of the rocker sole helps in weight transfer during the walking motion.
This leads to another advantage of rocker technology in rocker shoes. The shoes will lead to all around improved posture. Posture is key for comfort and proper body function when standing up, or sitting down. If the nurse has bad posture, then not only will the nurse hurt, but the nurse won’t be able to healthily perform duties, such as lifting and moving patients, and beds. On the other hand, if the nurse has good posture when they are sitting down, or they are standing up, then they won’t experience so much enduring pain. Their nursing duties will be a lot more tolerable if they wear nursing shoes with rocker soles.
Rocker technology in nursing shoes will help to absorb shock when performing duties such as bending and lifting. If you think about how hard the floor is, and then having to carry hundreds of pounds, then you’ll quickly realize that this is a lot of burden on the knees, back, and lower body all around. However, the rocker technology will help to absorb that shock, and it will help to rock the feet in a way that is a lot more accommodating to lifting and bending.
Furthermore, a nurse can realize a healthier back and legs. With the rocker shoes, the nurse will gain the same benefits that a runner, jogger, or walker would. A stronger lower body would again contribute to the nurse being able to better perform their duties when they wear nursing shoes that have rocker technology in them. It’s a good feeling knowing that there are nursing shoes that will help to make the shift more tolerable, and build up the body at the same time.
Is rocker technology new? Actually, Cherokee Shoes initially offered rocker soles on their athletic style nursing shoes in the 1980’s. The Cherokee Achiever quickly became a top selling nursing shoe because of the comfort offered and the benefits of easy weight transfer while walking and moving. It is not surprising that rocker technology first appeared in nursing shoes as no working footwear is more heavily relied on to provide support and comfort than nursing shoes. Every nurse will tell you that protecting their feet is of prime importance to job performance for a healthcare professional.…
