Mobile Phones and Cancer

Rumours about a link between mobile phones and possible cancers started when mobile phones were first introduced. The technology has changed since then; early phones were analogue and used more power. Digital technology has reduced the power consumption and radiation in phones. Digital encoding allows a signal to be transmitted with much less concern over clarity or interference, even with lower power signals. Closer base stations allow shorter signal paths, again reducing the amount of power needed.

 

But even with lower powered signals a mobile phone still emits radiation. This is why some people are concerned that they may cause cancer. Some technical information will help us understand this.

 

Radiation comes in many forms. Mobile phones Radio Frequency (RF) electromagnetic radiation.  This RF can broadly divide into two categories – ionizing and non-ionizing. Ionizing radiation causes atoms to gain or lose an electron, which is a change at the molecular level of matter. This ionizing radiation is thought to be a risk for cancer as the atoms in our cells can be altered, with the cells then reproducing in the wrong way. However, mobile phones work with non-ionizing radiation, which is not thought to be cancer inducing, at least at moderate levels.

 

The non-ionizing radiation of mobile phones is similar to the RF in TV and radio signals, though the frequency of the radiation if different. We are constantly exposed to this every day. Mobile phones would add little to what we already experience. The signal from a mobile phone is less than one watt, which is small compared to most electronic devices.

 

According to a Danish study in 2006 and 2011 [1], following mobile phone users for many years, there was no real effect on cancer rates. Most studies give similar results – either there is no effect, or there might be a minor effect.

 

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) presently puts mobile phones in the 2B category, indicating that there might be a possible cancer risk. This seems low compared to Sun exposure and other environmental issues. Mobile phones are the lease of our concerns.

Decal, for an image that is part of the surface

A really great way to redesign wall menus, print brand logos at a cheap price is to use decal products. It lasts longer than stickers and when needing to replace it, decals can be peeled off instead of buying a new sign. When done well, to the human eye it will appear as if the design has been painted on. A fantastic way for businesses to display material. Dr Decal Mr Hyde is a leading distributor of digital printing decal and temporary tattoo products in Australia. They claim that their products can be applied on many surfaces with the highest quality. For wood products, their new roll waterslide decals allow for easy generation of images and can be easily applied to most surfaces. Their website contains sections of their access to specialised decals and they are very transparent of the whole process. Decals are also a great present to give to friends for any item of clothing or toys. I would say to definitely have a look at Dr Decal Mr Hyde for all your design and promotion needs.

自分のライフスタイルでカラコンを選ぼう!

カラコンを選ぼうとすると、色んな種類があり、どのカラコンを選択したらいいのか、迷いがちです。
美しい瞳を演出してくれるビューティーカラコンや管理することが便利な使い捨てカラコン、乱視を矯正してくれる乱視用カラコンなど、種類も機能もさまざまです。
そんな時には、自分のライフスタイルに合わせてカラコンを選んでみましょう。
自分に合うカラコンをどう選べばいいのか、ライフスタイルに合わせて選択する方法を紹介します!

特別な日にはビューティーカラコンを

普段、カラコンを使う時にはナチュラルなカラコンを使用する方が多いですが、花火や音楽フェスなどのイベントが多い夏には華やかなビューティーカラコンで普段とは違う表現をしてみましょう。
特に、カラーが2色以上配合されている2カラーカラコンや3カラーカラコンはつけるだけで顔の印象が変わるので、夏のイベント時の大のオススメです。
「宇宙人になるのでは」または「外国人感が出過ぎじゃないか」と心配の方もいるでしょうが、直径が小さいカラコンもあるし、ブラウンカラーはナチュラル感も出ますので、この夏にぜひチャレンジしてみてください!

着用時間が長い時にはシリコンハイドロゲルカラコンで安らかな目にしましょう。

出勤時から退勤の時までずっとカラコンを着用する会社員や長い時間、机の前で勉強する学生さんのように、1日の着用時間が10時間以上の場合には、「酸素通過率」が高いカラコンをつけることが、目の健康にいいです。
カラコンの着用時には水分の補給のためにいつもより多めの涙を必要としますが、涙の量は限定されていて、長い時間カラコンをつけることで目が乾燥になりがちです。そのためカラコンがどんなに酸素を通過させるのかが重要となります。
また、目が乾燥すると、カラコンも乾燥してくるので、敏感な眼球に傷をつけることもあるし、視力が低下する場合もあるので、「酸素通過率」はとても重要だと言えます。
そこでオススメなのが、シリコンハイドロゲルカラコンです。シリコンハイドロゲルカラコンはその素材に湿潤因子が多く含まれており、目の乾燥を改善するし、一般のカラコンより高い「酸素通過率」で一日中潤いが続きます。デザインも豊富で選択の幅が広いのも嬉しいポイントです。

レジャーを楽しむ時や旅行には便利な使い捨てカラコンを使用してみよう!

夏は山や川、海などで楽しめるレジャーがたくさん!でもメガネだと遊ぶ時には色んな不便があります。そんな時には使い捨てカラコンを使用しましょう。管理が必要なく、遊ぶ時に便利に使って、遊び終わったら捨てるだけ!
また、使い捨てカラコンはUVカット機能がついているカラコンが多く、外で太陽を楽しむには一番のミカタです!
旅行の時にも使い捨てカラコンが便利!普通のカラコンだとケースに管理溶液まで必要だから、荷物が多くなりますが、使い捨てカラコンだと一切不要で荷物を減らすことができます。一日が終わると捨て、次の日には新しいレンズを着用するので、便利かつ清潔にカラコンをつけることができます。

近視?乱視?自分の視力に合わせて、機能性カラコンを!

視力が低下したといっても、同じ理由で低下しているわけではないです。近視、乱視、遠視などでその原因を表現しますが、その中でも乱視はカラコンでは矯正することが難しかったです。
乱視は角膜が完全な球体ではないため、光の屈折が一定ではないので、物を見る時にぼやけたりかぶってみえたりすることを表します。乱視のまま長時間本を読んだり、パソコンを使って仕事をする場合、目の疲れがひどくなり、目まいがくることもあります。
今まで乱視はカラコンでは矯正することが難しいといわれて来ましたが、最近は乱視の矯正ができるカラコンが多く販売されており、美を追求しながら矯正もできるようになりました。

今までいろんなライフスタイルに合うカラコンを紹介しましたが、自分にピッタリなカラコンを探すことに成功したでしょうか。
自分のライフスタイルに合わせて、カラコンを選ぶことでもっと満足できるカラコン生活をしてみましょう。

Soju

Soju is a clear, colourless alcoholic drink from South Korea. It varies in alcoholic strength from about 17% to 45% but is usually about 20%. While it is not too well known in the Western world it is extremely common in the East and is easily one of the world’s largest selling alcoholic beverages.

The distillation method used for Soju varies. Historically it was first produced with rice, but shortages of rice lead to its production with sweet potatoes, Tapioca and grains. Some of these methods proved to be cheaper that previous methods and continued even when the rice shortage ended; by contrast grain based Soju was more expensive and continued as a high end gourmet product.

Because the alcohol content is usually lower than most spirits (less than 25% when sold in the west) Soju does not require an expensive distilled liquor licence when sold in the west. This mean restaurants and bars can serve it using only the type of licence need for wine. Some retailers use this loophole to produce Soju equivalents of cocktails that are traditionally made with stronger spirits. These cocktail are lower priced than their hard liquor equivalents and can be sold by retailers not usually known for mixed drinks.

Some popular Soju drinks are:

  • Bomb drink (Poktanju): a shot-glass of Soju in a pint of beer.
  • Suso Poktanju: A shot glass or beer in a pint of Soju (the opposite of the above).
  • Fallen Angel: 45mls Soju, 15mls green Crème de Menthe, 30 mls lemon juice, a dash of bitters and a cherry. Shake ingredients together and strain over ice.
  • Soju with Yogurt: Equal parts Soju, Yogurt and soda. Shake with ice and serve. Asian yogurt drinks tend to be thinner than western types, much like Yakult or “healthy bacteria” drinks.
  • Soju with grapefruit juice: 1 part Soju to 3 or 4 parts grapefruit juice. Add club soda or seltzer water and fine sugar to taste. Serve chilled.
  • Anything that traditionally used Vodka can be varied to use Soju. The results are different but comparable to the vodka original, and lower in alcohol.

What’s In A Name ?

Our name is intertwined with our identity. It is one of the first words we come to recognise in print, learn to write, and respond to when heard aloud. We either come to connect with our name, or occasionally find that friends and colleagues prefer to use a nickname. The fact that a name is occasionally changed to something else is testimony to the fact that the name has to somehow suit the individual. If the birth name doesn’t seem right, a nickname is used instead.

There may be a history behind the person’s name. It was a family thing, named after a relative; else the name might just sound right in isolation, or even just look right when written down. We can have a visual image associated with a name, and make all sorts of assumptions about a person simply because of this label; the origin of these assumptions being a little bit of a mystery, the assumptions changing in an instant if we meet someone who contradicts our expectations. Really, if someone is named ‘Ernest’ do we thing of Oscar Wilde’s comic play or Hemingway’s rugged masculinity? Its actual meaning is closer to Hemingway’s personality; Wilde’s used it ironically. But parents don’t necessarily look up the meaning when they choose for their newborn child. I think often the given name is simply a phonetic match with the Family name that we have rather little choice about. The name’s associations come from what we experience in connection with it.

What about unorthodox variations? Parents want the child to be recognised as an individual, so give it a name that nobody else has, or spell it in some unconventional way? Does this make the person different, or does it indicate that they always were different. A few people wonder how an unorthodox name wears for a child at school. A popular child can dare to be different and still be accepted, and the distinctive name goes with this. At other times a child is ostracised for not being part of the convention. Again, does the name influence this or simply reflect it.

Ancient Roman’s thought the name was an omen of what the person was, or would be. At the same time they would change the name if the person’s social status changed. The two ideas don’t quite reconcile; does the name determine character, or does the character determine the name? Probably not either really. It’s probably that the name should indicate the individual’s character. Either way the link is not arbitrary, we are not just given a number. Somehow the name must suit the individual.
