Benefits of Medical Tourism

Now a days medical field has spread its wing by offering overseas treatments at much reasonable costs for everyone to take benefits of. There are a lot of discussion going around the globe to see if there are benefits of medical tourism. Well, today we are going to take a peek in some of these benefits for us while considering any kind of medical tourism.

Medical tourism in simple term is a travel abroad to undergo any medical treatment that you would otherwise find either very costly in the your country or not as well equipped with the recent technology as the country you are traveling to receive that treatment. So if for example, you are from U.S.. and it costs you as an example GBP 20000 for an eye surgery, the same may be done say for example in India for the total sum of GBP 9000 which will not only include the surgery and hospital fees but also include accommodation, follow ups and a holiday feel all in one. This is why so many people today are attracted to this unique concept.

Thus there are many benefits for Medical Tourism. now for the patients who would like to undergo any kind of surgical treatment. Medical tourism gives everyone the opportunity to get best quality of medical treatments at lower costs. Although the costs certainly is the main benefit of medical tourism, the other attraction is the fact that other countries might perform certain treatments that are not available or are restricted in the country of their origin. And while vacation might not be the goal here, people certainly want to recuperate from any treatment while holidaying in their preferred places. There are lots of countries that offer such packages like India, Singapore, Thailand, Brazil, etc.

After information Technology (IT) and Information Technology Enabled Services (IEES), which are now good contributors to our Nation’s GDP, the next great thing happening could be ‘Medical tourism’, which has numerous potential, if rightly captured, to make big contributions to the Nation’s GDP. The following will show a some valid points by the way of expert’s questions vs. opinions offered, current status available with future projections and a some suggestions for making top use of medical tourism towards the development of the nation’s economic prosperity.

The offers available now a days for similar patients are specialized services ranging from cardiology and cardiac surgery (angioplasty, bypass, valve replacement), to oncology and onco-surgery, organ transplants (liver and kidney), bone marrow transplants, joint replacements, eye surgery and in-vitro fertilization. The price difference is significant, as that was for Marshall, for the patients.

Medical tourism is now a days attracting people from all over the world, from countries with comparatively poor healthcare infrastructures and, in case of the US, places with exorbitantly expensive health care services.

Medical tourists from US are generally those seeking procedures not covered by their insurers, those seeking required procedures and who are provided with incentives to find lower cost options, and those …

Unlocking Your Fitness Potential

Dealing with thousands of customers over a decade has led me to some startling insights into what can release a persons real fitness potential. There are consistent triggers or keys if you wish that have the ability not only to make you reach your fitness goals but to surpass them. The starting point of a fitness program seems like the BIG key to your fitness journey but there are several key decisions you must come to before you can start a successful fitness campaign.

Yes, we have many false starts in trying to become more fit. Why do most people only last three weeks or so at the gym or with many programs? Why are our good intentions lost after but a brief foray into our program of choice? Is it the program that is lacking or the lack of support from family or is it just the inescapable ravages of age? No, it is not any of those but our inability to make an informed, conscious decision to get fit. The key lies in our mind and our will.

#1 Think about it for some time

With out fail every person who has experienced any success in becoming fit has dedicated some time and effort into thinking about fitness. It is not uncommon for me to hear that people have followed my blog or U-tube videos for months before starting any fitness efforts. The conversation usually goes something like this “Hi I have thought about this for months and have visited your site many times to read the articles and work out tips. Now I am ready to start!

#2 Weight the consequences of fitness neglect

It seems that many who are now consistently fit have come from a very unhealthy back ground.Every thing from obesity to heart problems are on the list.As one male caller put it “I am so tired,I have no energy for anything, that means ANYTHING, if you get my meaning”. When even sex becomes undesirable for a reasonably young man (42) this certainly brings home the consequences of fitness neglect.

#3 Count the cost of a fitness life style

Years ago I had a professor whose Life Philosophy centered around two themes “Sex or Economics”. Well we have already mentioned sex so economics is next. Everything has a cost in time and money. Do you see the value in fitness? Does it translate into dollars and cents? No matter what your budget is you will spend money on fitness. Now don’t get me wrong no matter how much money you spend you cannot buy fitness but fitness has a price, time and money!

Thought + ( consequences – cost) = A conscious, informed decision.

A conscious, informed decision to get fit is the best start to your fitness journey. Take your time to get ready for the program of your choice. If you want a great body you need to exercise your mind now and ongoing to reach or exceed your fitness goals.

Joel Sauceda (CEO Big Value Depot) Believes in Giving Back to the Community

Joel Sauceda is a man of integrity and honesty. It shows up in many ways and one of those ways is his contribution to charities. If you are trying to find out what kind of person Joel Sauceda is just read this excerpt from his biography and it will answer any questions you have. Believe me before you finish you will know that he is honest and wants to help you. This will definitely help you make an informative decision as to whether or not to join him in business like Big Value Depot.
Joel Sauceda’s exact words from his biography. “I have always believed in “giving back” to the community in which I do business. Someone gave me a chance when I was in need and I believe in doing the same for others. San Antonio is a community that has enabled this C MINUS student to build businesses and thrive despite the odds being stacked against me. I am greatly appreciative to the many mentors and people within this city who have given me a “step up” and NOT a “hand out”

It is NOT About Me!

My goals are not only about personal success but watching others grow despite their life challenges. It is for this reason that I have chosen to endorse local charities so I can be actively involved and have more of a “hands on” approach to helping people. I like to SEE who my gifts are impacting..that motivates me to do more!

The big question that any person who wants to “give back” should ask is this..”How Do I Give And Stretch That GIFT So It Impacts MORE than one person and more important, MORE generations to come?”

Invest In Children…

Kids parents are NOT all created equal and unfortunately there are many children who do not have the benefit of good advice or even positive re-inforcement. These are the children that my heart bleeds for. These kids deserve a better chance because after all, it is NOT their fault for where they were born or WHO gave birth to them.

My goal is to impact children who did not have the start in life that they COULD of had and to let them know that they have it in them to do better. God created them and therefore they are special and ALL have unique gifts (It is just a matter of helping them find out WHAT those gifts are!).

I Joel Sauceda am proud to endorse a community center based in San Antonio and named after a HERO who I admire. That HERO to children is none other than SONNY MELENDREZ. Sonny has given of his time over the years and spoken at over 1100 schools to THOUSANDS of kids, sharing the message of HOPE with them. It was not long ago that a community center which at that time was CINDER BLOCKS and NO air conditioning (in a VERY hot city) was named after Sonny and many of San Antonio’s …

Workplace Dispute Resolution

Dispute occurs between individuals or groups, often when they are competing for the same resources or when one group thinks that another has blocked its ability to reach its goal. On the other hand, conflict develops when one group appears to jeopardize the goals of another, becomes openly antagonistic to another, and is not governed by organizational rules. Once conflict develops, it is likely to get worse, as antagonism grows, the goals become even more important to the two groups and the groups begin violating the organization’s rules in an attempt to reach their goals. (Porter, L.W., W.J. Crampan, and F.J. Smith 1989)

An organization that is complacent may become lazy; if every one agrees about every thing, no one is motivated to do exceptional work to prove the value of an idea. Such an organization can quickly get into trouble if it competes with other organizations in a rapidly changing environment.   A manager of a relatively stagnant or complacent organization may stimulate conflict to get the organization out of its ruts.   When properly managed, conflict can lead to creativity and productive change in an organization. For instance a moderate amount of conflict between two people who are interested in the same issue can lead the people to raise new questions, new doubts and perhaps new solutions. People in conflict may acknowledge the existence of problems that complacent people would have ignored. To stimulate this type of productive conflict, a manager can take number of actions. He or she can change the relationships between people by, for instance, forcing people to compete more for scarce resources or moving them closer together physically, he or she can train people to recognize the value of conflicts and avoid easy, superficial agreement (Stein, L, May, 1995).   A manager may even enter discussions with the purpose of playing ‘devil advocates’, opposing the generally accepted ideas stirring up trouble to try to uncover opposition to the accepted goals or methods. Compaq Computer uses this approach in making most major decisions.   Conflict between groups can raise specific kinds of problems that require specific resolution techniques. The compatibility of two groups and the importance of their interaction for attaining the groups’ goal determine which of the following strategies are useful:   Accommodation is recommended approach when two groups have compatible goals but do not need to interact in order to reach their goals (Porter, L.W., W.J. Crampan, and F.J. Smith. 1989). The two groups will typically have friendly meeting to decide how they can both work towards their goal accomplish their inter-dependent task while spending the least time and energy.   When two groups are incompatible and neither groups need interaction with the other in order to achieve its goal, the two groups may simply avoid each other. The research and the financial departments of the company may have different ideas about how the company should spend its money and these differences many lead to a good deal of conflict when the two departments discuss the issues. However, because …

Necessary things to consider in starting a bakery business

Bakery business gets active earlier than the sun comes up, making breads, cakes and pastries very early every morning.

All through the day, the bakery will also produce breads, cakes, doughnuts, pastries, pies, rolls and everything else that is offered by each particular bakery.  A baker; not only bakes every day, but have also got to take care of all of the accounting, such as making sure the shelves are stocked and goods are on order. A baker calculates the quantity of flour, yeast, salt, etc. that is needed each day.

Bakery business comes also into different types such as mum & pop shops that do their own baking, franchise bakeries and industrial bakeries.

Baking is something that’s extremely pleasurable for many people, what is better than the aroma of cookies and bread baking in the oven?

By looking around your local shop you would be forgiven for thinking that large bakeries are swiftly overtaking smaller ones.  However this is not completely true.  Many small bakeries do not seem to have adequate power to compete in the world, but it is potential as long as you know what you are doing.

When you are considering preliminary any type of business which produces food you must think about the legal necessities.  You will be able to start using your existing oven but you must make sure you talk to the department of health to find out whether or not your bakery is up to scratch for profitable food production.

As you start, it is not all that easy to build your own business; you require having a good head for business and also being aware of all your expenses.  You must be able to keep your customers fully satisfied and happy with your products.

Your bakery business plan should be comprehensive and go into all of the costs which you expect to incur.  You will need to plan for a license and business permit.

Aside from the costs, you will also need to come up with most favorable pricing for your products so that they can compete with others while remaining beneficial.

You might be able to start your bakery right from your home provided you have all the necessary equipments and permits.  Another option to try out is renting a commercial kitchen.  Just make sure that the rental facility for your bakery is situated in a popular location where there are plenty of customers. If your bakery is not in a location with high step then it might be very hard to attract customers.

Lastly, you need to research the number of other bakeries in your local area, uncover what the competition is like and how much they will charge for similar product.

Also learn the local environment and find out how it will affect the prosperity of your business. Bakeries smell wonderful but this alone would not mean that people will be lured to it. You will need to endorse your business so that people know that it exists, …

Who owns the rain?

Who owns the rain?

 It’s official. Greed is no longer cool. As turbocharged capitalism implodes and jobless queues swell, sensible governments have had to slip the bonds of laissez faire dogma to prop up their economies. The ‘free-market’ model is on the nose. Unfettered global creditors have plunged much of the developed world into debt-bondage; these days, their enforcers, the International Monetary Fund and World Bank wield the structural re-adjustment stick with renewed vigor. And it slashes to the bone. Reeling from this brigandage some countries are starting to cut their own cloth to fit their circumstances. Troubled times demand it! But I did say some, not all. Here in the islands of Mauritius and its colonially attached dependency, Rodrigues, the enforcers still have the run of the mill and, sometimes, they even get to run the mill.

 First some background: citing a lack of local expertise, and the need for a separate specialist agency to improve efficiency, Rodrigues chief commissioner disbands the water unit and, amid bitter party in-fighting, shunts the incumbent water commissioner aside and snaps up the commission for himself. The government establishes the privately-run but government-owned Rodrigues Water Company, effectively outsourcing to itself. Water meters are promptly installed for the user-pay system. And in classic like-it-or-lump-it style, public consultation follows the fait accompli. Rodriguans are reassured that new regulations will safeguard against future water privatization.

 Somehow, I detect a less noble instinct behind this political pantomime. Here’s why: if the government were really serious about keeping water in public hands, why didn’t they simply improve the existing public utility making it more efficient, iron out the kinks and, if needed, brought expert consultants to the commissioner’s table? Incidentally, costly imported experts have been doing their sophisticated rain-dance with negligible results since British rule; what’s more, with all the money thrown at this problem since, we could have built a brand new aircraft carrier. Okay I exaggerate. The point is, the money is gone but the problem is still here. Why? Evidently, no one could make it rain but they will now! In the crudest monstering of the truth, we are told that this cockamamie scheme will modernize and develop our country. No it won’t. In reality, it will bring grief and misery to the poor, while making those who eventually get to own the company – filthy rich. 

No matter the slant, when we get to the nitty-gritty, it distills down to a cash grab. Taxpayers paid for water infrastructure, and will continue to pay for major repairs and works, and reservoirs. And since RWC won’t churn out any desalinated water, or treat grey water, or produce a single drop of water that does not fall from the sky; water restrictions will remain. Indeed, in future, we may have to pay more for less. RWC will simply commandeer taxpayer-funded infrastructure, submit an annual uncooked report to the administration, check meters on taps, tip a bit of chlorine in our water and sell it back to us. …

This was due to the fact that it was a deep mud lake.but the locals cannot do anything because they are poor and fishing is their only source of income.Anather incident which has aattracted public  attention is THAILANTHOPU.It is near Vijayanullar which is famous for prostitution.Prostitution has been going on in this are for a long time and it is being watched by school going children.They pass that are during morning and evening where the prostitutes are seen doing unethical activities and passing lewd comments.This has created a mark on the impressionable minds of the choldrenas they have to view this nonsense everyday.

After Punjab ,Haryana and Bihar it is the turn of Chennai to be a part of honour killing.In Southern states like Tamil Nadu and Andhrapradesh women are forced to go through the harrowing experience of honour killing.Honour killing takes place when single educated women walk out of their dwellings and choose theirown life partner from other castes and communities.A recent studystates that Megal a a 20 year old girl from Manamadurai village in Madurai was in love with Sivakumar a 24 year old dalit boy.The point of contention for their marriage wa that they were cousins.The girl was then forcibly married to an old man named Kalisadanbut after a few days Megala fled away with Sivakumar.But the girls family attacked …

Role of a Chartered Accountant in an organization

An accountant plays a pivotal role in an organization. It is not just during the tax season, accountants can be useful at any time of the year. A chartered accountant can help you solve various financial issues.

There are non-designated accountants who do not belong to a professional body. Business owners should not hire any such non-designated accountants. There are Chartered Accountants who provide tax planning and tax preparation services to their clients.  However, not every accountant is a tax expert. Tax experts have in-depth knowledge and expertise in the area of taxation. In Canada, The Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants (CICA) has the most comprehensive tax training program, know as the Canadian In Depth Tax Course. Chartered accountants have the practical experience to be defined as tax experts.

Organizations should find out the type and years of tax experience Chartered Accountants have and check whether he/she has completed the CICA In-Depth Tax Course.

Handling such financial matters is not an easy task. A chartered accountant can help you figure out how to proceed. An experienced chartered accountant can handle your financial matters competently.

Chartered accountants provide a fixed fee to their clients or bill on hourly basis. Moreover, the value that you and your business derive from their services is far in excess of the fees that you pay them.…

The Faith that is of God and not man

The Faith that is of God and not man

Written by Joseph Ho, December 5th 2014

Our emotions and desires are often mistaken for faith and it is so easy to blame God when there are no results from something that has been purely of the mind and not of the heart. This was a sentence from a long forgotten book by Kathryn Kuhlman that truly struck a significant cord in my heart when I searched for the true reason why many Christians do not get their healing. They thought by doing those things which the church has preached that they will receive the desires of their hearts. Faith by reading the bible, by hearing the Gospel, by human works will not develop true overcoming faith. Faith comes by asking God for the power to believe in him. That is the kind of faith that Jesus preached unmanufactured by human efforts. Faith is given by God to those whom he receives as a son or daughter. Faith is given by the grace of God. That is why it is called Amazing Grace.

Faith will enter your heart when you open it to God. Faith comes by hearing the truth which Jesus preaches; it is not the same kind of faith which the church today teaches. The divinity and the power of the Word of God is Spirit. It is life unto all that receive the gift of faith. You cannot cultivate faith, and many instances people have mistaken their own ability to believe for the faith which only God can give. Faith is not a condition of the mind. It is a divinely imparted Grace to the heart. For our righteousness is as filthy rags to God. In truth, when one does not experience the power of God or an answer to any prayers, they tend not to believe. So why did God make it so difficult to see this hidden truth? He wants us to Ask, Seek and Knock before he opens the door to the keys of knowledge and wisdom.

Isaiah 6:10New International Version (NIV)

10 Make the heart of this people calloused; make their ears dull
    and close their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes,
    hear with their ears, understand with their hearts, and turn and be healed.”

Romans 10:10King James Version (KJV)

10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

So how is it possible to believe in God not by sight but by faith? By sight, I mean to believe in a God we can experience. Too much theoretical truth does not produce faith that can overcome the world’s most serious problems like: diseases that kill, sickness that causes years of sufferings, broken relationship that torments the hearts of many people, and the financial bankruptcy of broken dreams and lost business endeavours.

The type of faith that can overcome such disaster can only be real faith given and imparted by a supernatural father …
