For many companies, the decision to use webinars is based on enhancing workflow and cutting cost. It is clear, however, that video conferencing services has many real world applications as well. The most obvious benefits of utilizing these tools are really just the tip of the iceberg. One recent example of this is an undertaking by the National Family Caregivers Association (NFCA) in Suffolk with using webcast to disperse information.

In November, the NFCA in collaboration with Home Instead Senior Care put on free web conferencing. The aim was to help families coping with caring for elderly parents to make decisions and understand potential problems. The 45-minute online conference addressed vital issues and featured well known professionals in the field of senior care.

Senior care is a growing concern in the US. Using webinar software to enhance care and making decisions is a giant step in the right direction. The facilities of a good video conferencing software can also be applied to other areas. These include:

Distance education
Sales team mobilization
Product promotion
Customer service
Staff training
Technical support

Other areas of the health care sector can also be improved by the use of a video conferencing system. Todays web conference systems are pricey as earlier. Providers like RHUB Communications have created products that give any company or organization the ability to be flexible.

The web conference systems today are based on speed, reliability, and enhanced communication. Some of the features of the best web conference services are:

Remote desktop control
Multi-tiered tech support
Recording of conferences or webinars
File transfer and remote printing

A web conference like the one put on by the NFCA creates opportunities for others facing similar situations. Not surprisingly, the decision to have the web conference was largely influenced by the current economic climate.

Users today have the option of hosted services, downloadable software or self hosted, in house solutions. RHUB appliance is an example which many companies find to be preferable to hosted solutions. However, even the most basic web conference systems have helped

Organic food benefits our lives in many ways, but I want to address a singular health issue today. In the US cancer rates have risen over the last decade. Many of the pesticides used in typical farming procedures are listed by the EPA as either possible or probable cancer causes. The insanity has to stop. Each and every one of us is responsible for our own health, and we need to start thinking more clearly about how our diets impact our health.

One way to reduce your risks of cancer is to increase the antioxidants in your diet. This isn’t new information, it has become a well established fact, supported by many studies done by the National Cancer Institute. These studies have shown that antioxidants slow, and in some cases may prevent the development of cancer. Higher antioxidant loads is just one of the organic food benefits.

Organic food benefits us again though, environmentally. Organic farms do not use the chemicals, and hormones found on feed lot farms to enhance the growth of the animals. These chemicals can be excreted by the animals and find their way into water supplies. While the effects of these chemicals on humans is largely unstudied, or understudied, they may be a factor in many of the health problems we experience. Again, organically grown livestock, vegetables and fruits are not treated with these chemicals so there is never a worry about the chemicals used becoming a health risk.

We see that organic food benefits us with reduced cancer risks; through higher antioxidant levels, and environmental risk factor reduction. I encourage you to do more research on your own. The National Cancer Institute and the President’s Cancer Panel have much more detailed reports that can help. For myself, I find I feel better when I eat more organic foods than when I eat foods produced normally. I’m aware that’s merely anecdotal, but perhaps you should try for yourself and see if you feel better as well. The worst that will happen is you eat a few more vegetables for a few days while deciding.

Esophageal Cancer Therapeutics Market is forecast to Show High Growth Until 2017, The report identifies the key trends shaping and driving the global Esophageal Cancer Therapeutics market.

GlobalData estimates that the global esophageal cancer therapeutics market was valued at $243.8m in
2010, and is forecast to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 14% over the next seven
years, to reach $594.7m by 2017. This fast growth is primarily attributed to the strong pipeline and onset of four promising molecules from 2014 onwards. The HER-2 expressing patients have access to
Herceptin (transtuzumab) which is approved for HER2-overexpressing metastatic gastroesophageal (GE)
junction adenocarcinoma along with some widely used off-label drugs such as cisplatin and capecitabine
and ECF (epirubicin,cisplatin and 5-FU) which have gone off-patent.

GlobalData analysis shows that the esophageal cancer therapeutics pipeline is strong, with 35 molecules
in various phases of clinical development, including 31 first-in-class molecules. The four promising first-inclass products such as Avastin (bevacizumab), Erbitux (cetuximab), ramucirumab and Tykerb (lapitinib) in late stage pipeline are expected to hit the market around 2014. These products possess mechanisms of action different from currently used drugs. Thus the pipeline for the esophageal cancer therapeutics
market is strong.

The esophageal cancer therapeutics market is represented by Herceptin and some off-label drugs.
Cisplatin, Xeloda (capecitabine) and ECF are mainly used drugs for treating esophageal cancer.
Paclitaxel and carboplatin, 5-FU and leucovorin are also used but they have low response rates.
Herceptin from Genetech/Roche is prescribed as the first line and second line form of drug therapy for the treatment of HER2-overexpressing metastatic gastroesophageal junction adenocarcinoma patients. There are no other drugs which have been approved for non HER-2 overexpressing patients of esophageal cancer. Any drug that could successfully cater to this untreated patient segment is expected to reap revenues from the esophageal cancer therapeutics market.

GlobalData, the industry analysis specialist, has released its new report, Esophageal Cancer Therapeutics – Pipeline Assessment and Market Forecasts to 2017. The report

Before deciding to purchase a home fitness equipment, the user has to get the advice of the physician whether he or she is really fit to do exercises at home, whether it is a strength building exercise or a cardio exercise.

For strength building exercises, there are much small and inexpensive home fitness equipment like dumb bells, free weights, and many more. There are strength training machines that allow maintaining a proper form and would also be helpful in minimizing the risk of injury. Such equipment are also suitable for those who have a limited space in the home.

When it comes to the selection of equipment for cardio workouts at home, there are a number of choices including treadmills that are comfortable and familiar, elliptical trainers that give a low impact work out taking care of the joints and so on. An exercise bike would be a compact home fitness equipment and does not take much of the space.

Elliptical trainers are the ultimate fitness equipment which combine the advantages of both the treadmill and stair stepper. Since different equipment are designed to cater to the needs of different parts of the body, it is better to assess what type of equipment is suitable to the user before finalizing. So, it is sane to purchase equipment with which the user is already familiar and knows how to use it.

A budget has to be set apart for buying the home fitness equipment because the quality of the equipment and thereby, the safety of the user matter more than anything else. This can be judged when a user feels comfortable while using it. Earlier, space was the constraint which prevented people from buying home fitness equipment but now manufacturers have overcome this hurdle by introducing equipment that are foldable and compact, so that they fit into the garage and the budget of the buyer.

Home fitness equipment have many advantages. In addition to saving the time to reach the gym, home fitness equipment offer privacy and comfort of exercising at home. This also gives complete

Every October the entire country participates in various charity events and promotions to raise awareness for the fight against breast cancer. If you’re a sports fan, you’ve probably noticed that even the NFL gets in on the action by having its players wear Breast Cancer Awareness Month promotional products on Sundays-and Mondays-and sometimes Thursdays, for that matter.

The entire month of October is basically a war against the disease that more than 200,000 women are newly diagnosed with each year. It’s not enough. One month out of the year isn’t enough. Or, at least, it’s not for a few Californian women who are pushing for their state to institute a year-round breast cancer awareness option.

The four women, who call themselves the -Survivor Sisters,- are pushing for the introduction of a pink California license plate that successfully passed through the State Assembly on May 29 thanks to a unanimous vote, reports CBS San Francisco. It’s a great first step, but the bill (AB 49) still has several more to climb before pink license plates start appearing on California cars. The State Senate’s transportation committee will have to pass it before it’s sent to the Governor Jerry Brown for his signature.

Should Brown sign the bill there would still be one more step in the process: the -DMV requires that we have 7,500 pre-plate orders in order for them to actually manufacture the plates,- Survivor Sister Heather McCullough told CBS San Francisco. More than 3,000 pre-order signatures have been acquired to date.

For McCullough, the campaign is all about creating something that will promote Breast Cancer Awareness all the time rather than just during a designated on-month period. -We wanted something that was going to be recognized 365 days a year instead of some campaigns really that are only out there during Breast Cancer Awareness Month,- she explained.

-Our ultimate hope,- McCullough continued, -is just that millions of people throughout California are able to see this plate and just make them stop and think, -Did I get my mammogram today or am I doing my self-examinations?’- You can support the
