How to Talk to Friends & Family About Plastic Surgery

By djbkk, published on Mar 1, 2014

However, telling your family members and friends is frightening you. What are some tips to keep in mind to make this conversation easier?

Educate Yourself

When you talk to your loved ones about the surgery you are going to have, they are probably going to express some concerns. In fact, they might even provide you with statistics about how dangerous the surgery is supposed to be. If you prepare yourself for these types of questions, then you will not feel so attacked. Look into the statistics, so you can let concerned parties know that the surgery is not as dangerous as they think it... (more)

Are Mortgage Rates Set to Rise in 2014?

By djbkk, published on Feb 12, 2014

At the end of November last year the Bank of England announced that the Funding for Lending Scheme, which has been in operation since late 2012, will be aimed at funding for business, rather than at lending to households. The scheme had been due to end in 2013 but was extended for a further year and has been widely seen as one of the main reasons behind the low interest rate deals available from major banks on their mortgage products (see cbonline for low rates that are still available). While the much heralded economic recovery remains somewhat sluggish there are clear signs that some of the... (more)

Hala February Festival in Kuwait

By djbkk, published on Jan 3, 2014

Kuwait may be diminutive in population and area but the pocket Gulf state knows how to throw a memorable party. One has only look back at recent history, on November 10, 2012, to be precise. On that day, the day of Kuwait’s Golden Jubilee, the government spent a considerable sum of KD 4.06-million (USD 15 million) on a fireworks display that made the Guinness Book of World Records.

With this still firmly in mind, people have high expectations when they visit Kuwait in late February (February 25 and 26) for National Day and Liberation Day, respectively.

The Effects of Closed Head Injury

By djbkk, published on Jan 3, 2014

Brain injuries are classified in two ways, traumatic and non-traumatic. Traumatic brain injuries are further classified as open or closed head injuries. An individual suffers from a closed head injury when they have been in an accident and the brain is caused to bounce around inside of the skull if there was a blow to the head, or the onset of severe shaking that is usually present in an accident. In a closed head injury, there is tearing, stretching, or shearing of the individual’s brain tissue. This type of brain injury is more frequently suffered from, than open head injuries.

The Dangers of Synthetic Pot

By djbkk, published on Dec 23, 2013

Neurologists at the University of South Florida recently reported a possible link between strokes and synthetic pot, also called "spice" or "K2." The researchers identified this connection after seeing ischemic strokes suffered by a brother and sister who were aged 26 and 19, respectively. Health authorities are concerned that stroke and other serious health problems could become more common if unregulated drugs such as synthetic pot stay on the market.

The Case Study

This investigation started when a 26-year-old man with no risk factors and no genetic history of stroke came to the hospital... (more)

Which 2013 Tablet Is The Best For Gaming?

By djbkk, published on Nov 27, 2013

If you keep up to date with the technical press you might have come across the latest news that Apple has been testing a brand new iPhone display with a screen size of six inches. In fact this rumour has even appeared in the tabloid press, though how credible it might be is yet to be seen. Although Apple is a highly innovative company, given that its current iPad and iPad mini tablets are outselling all other tablets would it be wise for them to compete with themselves?

According to the Adobe 2013 mobile survey the most popular tablet for gaming is the iPad mini with the conventional... (more)

Getting Around Bangkok

By djbkk, published on Nov 21, 2013

Bangkok is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, but also one of the most confusing and chaotic, especially for first-time visitors. I know this first-hand, as when I first arrived I was overwhelmed with the sight, sounds, traffic, street food, and general chaos. And like most first-time tourists I spend my first few days getting around by either tuk tuk or taxi. I then got used to the skytrain, but that was about it.

If you're going to visit Bangkok for the first time I'd definitely suggest you take at least one trip on a tuk tuk, as it's quite a fund experience... (more)
