Well technology could </p><p>just fly you above everywhere you wish. With the right and legal permissions to use one, you are </p><p>entitled to capture the world scene through Drone Cameras. </p><p>Originally used for aviation and military purposes, drone cameras catch the attention of visual media </p><p>and aircraft hobbyists today. How did drone cameras fly its way to the top anyway? </p><p>Before the era of a drone camera, comes a drone, also known as Unmanned Aerial Vehicle or </p><p>Unpiloted Aerial Vehicle (UAV), and Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA), which is basically an aircraft </p><p>without a human pilot aboard. It was introduced by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) </p><p>and its controlled by a pilot just through computers or remote controls. </p><p>Drones are mainly for military applications like special operations, to police operations, to residential </p><p>problems inspections. But the current trend and necessities of the society pushed the drone to </p><p>reinvent itself. </p><p>Without a Pilot, but With a Camera </p><p>A drone camera, from the name itself, is a lightweight, unmanned aircraft fitted with camera. When </p><p>flown above different heights, one can barely hear its engine perfect for surveillance purposes. </p><p>However, its military, industrial and civil capacity arises with its popularity among photographers, film-</p><p>makers, and travel hobbyists. From using kites, pigeons and rockets, these media enthusiasts </p><p>eventually discovered the perks of having a drone camera over their heads with a first person view </p><p>piloting. </p><p>May it be to the ground, through a tree, or above with the wind, other drone cameras have Global </p><p>Position System (GPS) to create stability and capture clear photographs. </p></li><li><p>Flyers License </p><p>But using drone cameras is not easy as one-two-three click. There are countries wherein the Federal </p><p>Aviation Administration (FFA) strictly selects which users have the legal permission to use such. </p><p>Complying with the laws regarding privacy and data protection is a must for drone cameras are too </p><p>high-tech to be involved in different intentions. </p><p>The FFA must inspect each flight of the drone cameras, operated by a technician with a pilots license , </p><p>and must not fly higher than 400 feet. There was this exhibition game at the Bank of America Stadium </p><p>in August 17, 2014, wherein a Charlotte-Mecklenburg police saw a drone camera, flew above it and </p><p>detained its user. The owner was then released after stating the reason of such detainment. </p><p>This owner didnt have the go-signal from the FFA, unlike the DHL, the German logistics company in </p><p>Europe, which is permitted to deliver supplies to residents using drone cameras. Some known </p><p>companies are applying for authorization like the Amazon, for drone-delivery service, and Google, for </p><p>self-flying vehicle tests in Australia. </p><p>Film-making companies are receiving responses from FFA about using drone cameras in certain movie </p><p>and television sets, hoping for a great motion picture experience. But industries like news media and </p><p>online retailing, real estate, agriculture and energy dont get a hard time to be permitted on using </p><p>drone cameras. </p><p>Drone cameras are slowly taking steps to make drone cameras legally fly over people, with the right </p><p>purposes. </p><p>Security and Surveillance from a Higher Perspective </p><p>It was expected that there will be 10, 000 drone cameras flying in the skies of America for the next ten </p><p>years, with different purposes. But most of the people predict that these drone cameras are meant to </p><p>be friends with CCTV cameras, for security and surveillance. One could imagine a place with less </p><p>violent and criminal acts because drone cameras are flying over the suspicious people, autonomously </p><p>looking after others. </p></li><li><p>Survivorship Care: Staying as a Cancer Survivor By Joshue Concha </p><p>Everyones capable of being diagnosed with cancer. As they say, cancer doesnt choose who to hit or </p><p>not to hit. Once diagnosed, various sickness and pain are present to challenge your whole beings </p><p>capabilities to conquer all. The battle of the one suffering is such an inspiration, and surviving cancer is </p><p>both a miracle and a blessing. </p><p>Celebrities like Lance Armstrong and Suzane Somers fought and survived their battles with cancer </p><p>along with the 14.5 million cancer survivors as of this year. Its a great improvement, knowing that the </p><p>number of cancer patients from 3 million in 1971 has increased to 13.7 million today. </p><p>However, surviving cancer isnt the end of the battle yet, for there are still issues that cancer survivors </p><p>have to be aware of. Aside from the risk of having new cancer, the side-effects of their previous </p><p>treatments to their physical, psychological and social roles and functions have a lot of work to do to </p><p>get you back to normal. </p><p>How to stay a survivor? Here are some practical and medical tips to help you fight the battle without </p><p>the fear of losing. </p><p>Post-treatment Care for Long-term Health </p><p>Cancer survivors can have their long-term health by doing follow ups, staying in touch with their </p><p>doctors and having post-treatment or survivorship care. According to the research co-chaired by </p><p>Barbara L. Andersen, PhD and Julia Howe Rowland, PhD of the American Society of Clinical Oncology </p><p>(ASCO), neuropathy, fatigue and depression, and anxiety are the symptoms that may affect the cancer </p><p>survivors. </p><p>By applying the following, a cancer survivor will have long-term health and will stay as a survivor: </p><p> Exercising. It increases and speeds your recovery by having improved mood, caused by </p><p>improved sleep, confidence, strength and endurance, and decreasing the symptoms that are </p><p>mentioned above. The most recommended is exercising for 30 minutes for five or more days a </p><p>week. </p></li><li><p> Balancing diet. The main food groups that must be on your plate are carbohydrate-rich ones like fruits, </p><p>vegetables and whole grains. Proteins come from lean meats, eggs, legumes and the like. Healthy fats </p><p>are omega-3 fats. Eat these daily for a healthy state. </p><p> Maintaining healthy weight. Sure is that gaining or losing too much weight will be clearly seen after </p><p>surviving cancer. And to look like and stay as a survivor, you must not look like you still suffer from </p><p>cancer. Its best to consult your doctor for a proper program to maintain a healthy weight. </p><p>The ASCO release such proven clinical guidelines to make survivorship care a success. Here are its three </p><p>guidelines to avoid such symptoms: </p><p> Managing Chemotherapy-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy. This type of neuropathy comes from </p><p>certain chemotherapy that contains medication such as taxanes, vinca alkaloids and platinum drugs. </p><p>Treatments offering duloxetine and other medication to select patients such as tricyclic </p><p>antidepressants, gabapentin, and a topical gel containing baclofen, amitriptyline, and ketamine could </p><p>be tested. </p><p> Screening and Management of Fatigue in Adult Cancer Survivors. Primary fatigue treatments and </p><p>managements through screening and assessment are offered to adult cancer survivors. Screening must </p><p>be done from the point of diagnosis until the survival. Keep your doctor aware of your fatigue history, </p><p>status and factors that may prevent you from it. Physical endeavors, psychological interventions and </p><p>mind-body interventions must be planned well while the cancer survivor keeps himself knowledgeable </p><p>about every aspect of having cancer-related fatigue. </p><p> Anxiety and Depression Management in Adults with Cancer. Depression has such a big effect on </p><p>cancer survivors for their emotional state greatly affects the increase in their physical health problems. </p><p>Be evaluated for a certain schedule and the doctor should document and record every detail. Be aware </p><p>about the causes and effects of being depressed and the ways on how to manage and reduce its </p><p>possibilities. Just like what the program offers for fatigue management, depression management also </p><p>requires psychological, psychiatric and psychosocial interventions. </p><p>The Battle Worth Surviving for </p><p>Yes, surviving cancer is such a relief and a freedom to be grateful about. But being a survivor may or may not be </p><p>long-term if you are not aware of the post-treatment care and ways you should be taking. Being diagnosed and </p><p>bombarded by various treatments make you used to it, so having post-treatment or survivorship care is just a </p><p>piece of cake to you as survivor. </p><p>Through your own ways, with your doctors ways, battling and surviving cancer not only gives you healthy mind </p><p>and body, but also your view about living with everything that makes life worth the hardships in your battle. </p></li><li><p>Be Sensitive about having Tooth Sensitivity during the </p><p>Winter Season By Joshue Concha </p><p>December feels mean the holiday season meets the winter season. Kids find it fun to play snow fights </p><p>and build snow men, but the shift from moderate to extreme cold may affect their teeth and they may </p><p>not enjoy winter that much. </p><p>The most common case that the dentists receive from their patients is the tooth sensitivity, caused by </p><p>cold weather like the winter season. Being exposed and unprepared (worst is if the teeth isnt healthy) </p><p>to the season would cause severe sensitivity as painful as the intake of hot and cold foods. Studies </p><p>show that tooth sensitivity affects one out of four people, which means 45 million adults ages 25-45 </p><p> in the United States, and 10 million of it being affected by it continuously. </p><p>The Root and the Fruit for Such Sensitivity </p><p>The painful and sharp feeling caused by sensitivity has been experienced by most of the people </p><p>because of the cold foods, drinks and winter air. Aside from these unavoidable causes, serious tooth </p><p>sensitivity usually happens when gums recede as gum tissues are being reduced due to wrong oral </p><p>hygiene. This will then result to exposure of tooth roots, known as gingival recession, and theses roots </p><p>lead directly to the tooth nerve or tooths pulp; thus, causing such sensitivity. </p><p>Tooth sensitivity is often caused by wrong oral hygiene in which one is unaware that these simple </p><p>deeds may lead to severe pain overtime. Other than having dental health problems, here are the ones </p><p>that cause it especially during winter season: </p><p> Eating and drinking of hot and cold foods and beverages. </p><p> Enamel destruction caused by eating acidic foods. </p><p> Too much pressure on brushing the teeth, which remove the gum tissue. </p><p> Poor oral hygiene, leading to build-up of plaques, which eventually turns into tartar. The </p><p>bacteria from it will then cause gum disease and recession. </p><p> Grinding of teeth. </p><p> People with sense sensitivities, such as sense of sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch usually </p><p>experience tooth sensitivity. </p><p> Aging goes along with gum recession over time. </p></li><li><p>Knowing that this poor oral hygiene was just caused by the lack of discipline among people, its fair to </p><p>say that these could be avoided instantly with these tips: </p><p> During winter, stay inside your home to avoid the cold air. </p><p> Avoid hot and cold foods and beverages. </p><p> Avoid highly acidic foods and drinks such as citrus and soda. </p><p> Have a discipline of not grinding your teeth. </p><p> Brush your teeth gently using soft brush as well as your gum line to avoid bacteria build-up. </p><p>Brushing for about two to three minutes is recommended instead of the usual 30-45 seconds. </p><p> Apply sensitive toothpaste when brushing your teeth daily. This could block the root pores in </p><p>the tooth surface. Try rinsing it not that thoroughly after brushing for the toothpaste to linger </p><p>for a long time. </p><p> After brushing with sensitive toothpaste, a special fluoride gel is also recommended as </p><p>prescribed by your dentist, which can be applied onto your gums. </p><p> With the help of your dentist, placing conservative bonded fillings on the exposed root could </p><p>help make nerves unreachable. </p><p> If the gum or gingival recession is too severe, consult a periodontist, a gum specialist. </p><p>Yes, tooth sensitivity is often experienced during winter season, giving you a hard time doing what you </p><p>must do for you suffer from severe pain. But these tips arent only recommended when one is already </p><p>experiencing one, for it is a must for a daily basis regardless of what season it is. </p><p>Untreated tooth sensitivity may result to permanent pulp damage, which is very costly compared to </p><p>these simple and cheap tips. For your child to enjoy the winter season, teach him these tips and it will </p><p>be his oral hygiene until he grows old. </p></li><li><p>Towels Color Vibrancy: How to Keep it Alive for Long By Joshue Concha </p><p>A great interior requires a lot of planning and choosing of the right pieces of furniture and fabrics from </p><p>the ceiling to the floor. And one of the current trends in decoration is the choice of which towel colors </p><p>and designs look good and give accents at the backdrop of a bathroom, bedroom, and other areas. </p><p>However, these towels are more prone to be dirty and stained in every use. Moreover, its designs and </p><p>colors will be greatly affected when washed and cleaned in the wrong way. How to keep its vibrant </p><p>color the way it has to be? The means are just simple and cheap. </p><p>More TLC for Colored Towels </p><p>In washing such colored towels, one might be surprised about knowing that these towels require </p><p>different attention from that of colored clothes. Towels are made of different fabrics and fibers that </p><p>could be prolonged if washed in these ways: </p><p> Follow whats in the care label. Check the instructions in the care label of each towel, for it is </p><p>made up of different fibers and fabrics; thus, different care types are required. </p><p> Five to seven uses are enough for a go-signal to wash the towels. People are fond of using </p><p>towels everyday and its clear to see that germs and its smell would be worsen if not washed at </p><p>least until its seventh use. </p><p> Dont just separate dark colored and bright colored towels. Instead, do it according to its </p><p>shades. Be cautious in sorting each color groups, for mixing such fades and changes its colors. </p><p> Apply white vinegar to the wash water at the first wash cycle. White vinegar set the color of </p><p>the towel, prevents it from fading, removes detergent residue, and eliminates its bad odor. </p><p> Never use brightening products that are used for white towels. This obviously fades the </p><p>vibrancy of the towels color, s...</p></li></ul>
