Impact of Smoking on Oral Health

Smoking is one of the major cause for oral health problems. Smoking and other tobacco related products contains chemicals that are harmful to the oral cavity. The risk of oral health increases with the duration of smoking and chewing tobacco. Some of the oral health problems associated with smoking and chewing tobacco are:

Bad breath
Smoking causes halitosis. Halitosis is a condition where there is bad odor from the mouth. Smoking decreases saliva secretions and this leads to the development of plaque and gives bad breath. Not only this, tobacco contains nicotine and tar settle on teeth and gives you bad breath.

Discoloration of teeth
Smoking causes stains on teeth which is due to the presence of nicotine and tar in tobacco products. This in turn leads to teeth becoming yellow.

Tooth decay
Tobacco products contains chemicals irritates the gum tissue and gums become recede. This leads to the exposure of tooth root and susceptible to plaque formation and leads to tooth decay.

Gum problems
Smoking causes gum problems that includes gingivitis which is known as inflammation of gums and loss of bone below the teeth. Smoking reduces the flow of blood to the gum tissue and therefore lack of oxygen supply to the gum tissue and becomes susceptible to infections and leads to gum problems.

Slow downs the healing ability
Smoking and chewing tobacco slows down the healing ability of wounds after surgery or dental implantation. It interferes with the cells involved in the healing process and reduces the recovery period. In tooth extraction process, smoking causes dry sockets so patients experience severe pain and discomfort due to the exposure of bone and nerve endings.

Oral cancer
Smoking causes oral cancer. The risk of oral cancer is more in candidates who smoke than candidates who never smoke. The tobacco products and smoking contains carcinogenic chemicals. These chemicals disrupts the DNA of gum tissue cells and irritates the mucous membrane and causes oral cancer.

Lack of taste sense
Loss of taste sense is caused by smoking as it reduces the saliva secretions and mouth becomes dry and reduces the taste sense.

Black hairy tongue
Black hairy tongue is due to the development of bacteria on tongue and causes small projections called papillae. This papillae appears like black hair on tongue. These are the dental problems associated with smoking. Though these can be treated, the best way to cure is by avoiding smoking and chewing tobacco.

Contribution of Country Code Top Level Domain (ccTLD) in SEO

The problem
With the .com domain becoming more expensive and rare, domain holders are looking for new cheap and effective Country Code Top Level Domain (ccTLD) for expanding the reach of their business. However, the choice of such domains affects search results on the search engine pages and the results are more locally visible granting them exposure to a particular geographical locality. This may lead to restricted business prospects and market growth often limiting them within their own geographical area due to wrong ccTLD. Hence the choice of ccTLD is a major issue for any business owned firm as Google results tend to keep the result with such domains from the same region upwards.

Significance of ccTLD based SEO
The ccTLD based SEO brings more benefits and profit making implications. A ccTLD tends to stress the brand entity in a particular geographical area. Therefore, it should be used to target a particular area that has good customer presence and product demand.

In addition, creating various ccTLDs will lead to organized and distributed traffic over multiple sites. Therefore, the bandwidth limitations of different sites of the same organization can be relaxed with better traffic management. Multiple ccTLD associated with same firm can also lead to multiple search results in the same search results.

Google search is based on generic ccTLDs. Countries where Google is not a popular search engine, the suitability and accessibility via other search engines should be calculated taking a different approach. Choosing a single good domain that can be searched from various geographical locations is a good move and are economic too.

Risks with improper ccTLD
Wrong practice of ccTLD in domain name can have heavy and critical consequences. Websites with a respective domain of this kind tend to target the customers in that particular area. Mismatch in this can lead to confusion leading to decline in brand value in that geographical area hampering the local market in the area or giving a wrong picture of the business.

The content of the websites over various ccTLDs should be checked for redundancy and care should be taken to make them customer centric to that particular region alone. Also, the search results in a particular area may not show the service even if it is present in that area leading to heavy toll on the business. It can also lead to unwanted traffic onto the site and limit its bandwidth capabilities.

Choosing a perfect ccTLD for SEO is a vital concern and should be adopted judiciously. Uncalculated moves can lead to unwarranted results and cumulative losses in the long run. You need to check Google list of generic ccTLD signifying the search results and targeted geographical areas for each domain. An efficient and wisely chosen ccTLD can lead to good business in multiple geographical locations whereas a miscalculated step can lead to diminishing of the existing market itself.

Dry Mouth - Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

Dry mouth in a technical term called Xerostomia. It is the condition in which there is decrease in saliva secretions in mouth. Saliva secretions removes the plaques or food materials from mouth and prevents dental problems. Dry mouth is commonly seen in old people. If it is untreated, it leads to other oral problems like tooth decay and gum problems.

This article provides you complete information about dry mouth causes, signs and how it can be treated.

Causes of dry mouth
  • Taking medications which decreases the saliva secretions
  • Side effects of some drug categories like anti hypertensive drugs, Diuretics etc.
  • Side effects of diseases like HIV, Anemia, Diabetes
  • Dry mouth can be seen in patients who are undergoing radiation treatment on neck, head
  • Due to hormonal changes in pregnant women
  • Removal of salivary glands by surgery
  • Taking breath continuously with mouth.
  • Dehydration- loss of water or fluids from body causes dry mouth.
Symptoms of dry mouth
  • Alterations in the taste sensation
  • Dryness of mouth
  • Irritation on tongue
  • Bad odor from mouth
  • Sticking of food to teeth and mouth
  • Sores or patches in mouth
  • Difficulty in chewing, drinking and speaking.
How it is diagnosed?
  • Saometry is used to measure the flow of saliva in particular period of time. In this 10% citric acid is placed on the tongue and check the stimulation of saliva flow with the normal saliva flow.
  • Salography uses radio opaque iodine dye on salivary gland and checks for any blockage of salivary duct.
  • Other tests like chest X-ray and salivary biopsy can also diagnose the dry mouth condition.
Treatment
Based on the cause it's treatment varies. If dry mouth is due to the side effect of medications then these can be substituted with the other medications. However, dry mouth can be treated by two ways, saliva stimulation and saliva substitution.
  • Saliva stimulation
    • If salivary gland is working properly, then saliva stimulation is used to treat dry mouth.
    • Chewing sugar free gums to increase saliva flow
    • Drink plenty of water
    • Take medications like prilocarpine which improves saliva secretions
    • Avoid breathing with mouth.
  • Saliva Substitution
    • Rinsing mouth with mouth wash does not containing alcohol makes mouth moist
    • Take saliva substitutes
    • Drink plenty of water
    • Avoid intake of caffeine
    • Moistening the mouth and lips with melting the ice in mouth
Problems associated with dry mouth:
If the dry mouth is untreated, it can cause serious dental problems
  • Tooth decay
  • Periodontal diseases
  • Oral thrush

PCBs : Future Prospects and Scope

3D Modeling (PCS – Printed Circuit Structures)
The PCB is a critical part of every electronic circuit. The shapes and sizes of the PCBs are conditioned by their application, working environment and the size constraints of the equipment to be manufactured.
Though with the existing technology we are able to use the x and y dimensions effectively, little has been done to utilize the z dimension. Today, 2.5D approach is widely used.

The 2D and 2.5D technologies have a few drawbacks.
  • Ineffective utilization of  z dimension.
  • Limited data transfer capabilities.
  • Harmonic effects due to impedance mismatching of materials.
  • Magnetic reflections due to sharp turns of the conducting path.
The 3D printing technology will eliminate the use of epoxy, vias, soldering, wires, screws and bolts. The circuits are flexible enough to be be rolled into a cylinder with the circuit inside it. The structures can vary from being solid to porous to elastic depending upon the application of the product.

With the help of DFM (Fused Deposition Manufacturing) machines, printing can be done at home and converted into physical structures.

Go Green
The earlier practices of PCB manufacturing consisted of bulk materials - raw materials and rejecting the excess unwanted part to utilize. It resulted in a large amount of wastes. 3D or AM (Additive Manufacturing) is a process of accumulating successive layers of materials leaving little or no waste.

Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)
This is the first additive manufacturing process employed. In this, a thin layer of powdered material is placed on the work surface and a laser beam sinters the particles together by creating metal thin shapes. The surface is lowered and another layer is deposited on the existing layer. This process is repeated, which creates a 3D structure.
The 3D structure can be built with features and voids that cannot be achieved by subtractive process. The resolution of lines is around 0.005 inch and thickness of layer is 0.004 inch.

Stereolithography Apparatus (SLA)
This is a process similar to that of SLS but hardening of photosensitive resins is done here instead of sintering particles. Support structures are required if there are large gaps in the build. The support structures are temporary and can be dissolved in water later.

Solid features are created and they have a good finishing. A resolution upto 0.001 per inch can be achieved but the research tools have achieved upto 0.0001 per inch resolutions. 

Fused Deposition Manufacturing (DFM)
In this technique, a heated nozzle is used to remove plastic directly onto a surface. This process can then be repeated until a certain number of times to create a 3D structure, that we mentioned earlier. In this way, 3D layering can be obtained. The nozzle and the head is moved onto a moving platform and is coordinated with the flow of plastic metal. Like SLA method, the structures created by DFM also require the use of support structures that are water soluble.

The disadvantage of the method is it creates a porous structure due to extrusion of the melted plastic. The structures are not self leveling and contain air bubbles in the structures. This goes in contradiction to the concept of 3D structure.

This demerit of the process can be overcome by using high resolution prints and controlling overlapping parameters.

The finishing obtained by this method is rough and it needs to undergo additional processing to deliver a smooth finish.

The resolution is in the order of 0.005 inch but the structures produces are rigid which allow their usage for mechanical parts.

Printed electronics
This approach of printing is used to achieve printing on various substrates as cheap as vinyl. This technique is designed for fast and low cost printing to achieve small features. The different approaches in this class are:

1. Screen printing : This is well known in solar cell manufacturing industry. Screen with a set pattern is laid on top of the work material and is pressed to it. The resolutions can be as good as 100 micrometer with a throughput (the amount of material) of 50 m2/h. It has a capability to produce thick layers with a wide range of materials having different measure of viscosity.

2. Direct Digital Manufacturing (DDM): This requires ink jetting to be done on a substrate with a low viscosity ink. The ink particles have conducting and self adhesive properties. A throughput of around 100 m2/h with a thickness of around 0.0005 inches can be made.

3. Electroless plating: A metallic film is deposited on the substrate with the help of a chemical (reducing) agent. The process is slower than the electrolytic plating but the resolution achieved is higher and thin lines are obtained.

4. DP (Direct print methods) : A quill is dipped in the depositing material. The material sticks to the tip of the quill. This tip can then be moved over a substrate in 3 axes to produce a 3D print. It can produce a 14 nm line width and 5nm resolution in 3D patterns.

Major challenges and remedies
As the structure is getting smaller and smaller, the electromagnetic interference between the traces and components become a larger problem. This can be minimized with the use of anisotropic materials and spatially variant lattices.

Additionally, this method is still premature due to lack of development of required automation tools. Currently, 3D printing and DP method are used collectively to achieve objectives but a technology named Direct Printing Additive Manufacturing System (DPAM) is being developed to build a common automation tool to the above problem statement.

Nursing Bottle Caries/Baby Bottle Tooth Decay

Tooth decay in infants and young children is referred to as nursing bottle caries. This happens when there is prolonged exposure of infant's teeth to liquids that contains sugar (milk, formula or fruit juice).
This article discusses about the causes, symptoms, treatment and prevention of baby bottle tooth decay.

Causes of baby bottle tooth decay
Nursing bottle caries can occur when the baby is put to bed with the bottle containing milk or other sweetened liquids like juice. Bacteria in the mouth live to digest sugary and starchy food or drinks multiply and form acid. This acid attacks the enamel of tooth/teeth gradually dissolving other layers of tooth resulting in tooth decay.
The upper front teeth are more susceptible to get decayed from baby bottles.

Symptoms
  • White or brown spots appearing on teeth
  • Pain
  • Swelling and bleeding gums
  • Fever caused by gum or tooth infection
Prevention
Following are some tips for preventing tooth decay in children:
  • After every bottle-feed, clean your child's gums and teeth gently with a soft cloth or a gauze pad. This will help in removing any bacteria that contains plaque and excess sugars that may have built up.
  • Begin to brush your baby's tooth as soon as his/her first tooth erupts.
  • When all the baby's teeth have erupted, use a pea size amount of toothpaste for brushing the baby's teeth prescribed by your dentist.
  • If your child is using pacifier, make sure that it is clean and sterlized. Never dip it in honey or other sugars.
  • Never put your child to bed with a bottle that contains sweetened liquids or the liquids that contains natural sugars like milk, formula or fruit juice.
  • Begin encouraging your child to drink from a cup from six months onwards.
  • Arrange regular dental checkups as soon as your baby’s first tooth erupts.
  • Encourage healthy eating habits.
  • Supervise your child's tooth brushing until the age of 5-6 years.
Treatment
For treating this kind of decay, the dentist will remove the decayed portion from the tooth/teeth and fills the cavity with a material called as composite resin or silver amalgam, thus restoring and protecting the tooth. If the decay is severe and has attacked the tooth pulp, the dentist will perform the root canal treatment.

If the decay is caught earlier, there is no need of root canal treatment. This is the reason why dentist recommends visiting them regularly.

Steps in development of Business Application Software

Business application software is widely used to increase productivity of businesses. To develop software, the client company has to spend a greater amount from their budget. The vendor should have clarity of about the real need of the client, how they expect the software and for what purpose. Otherwise, valuable money and time will be lost.

Following are the steps mostly using while developing business application software.

  • Requirement analysis: Requirement analysis is the first step in software development. First, you need to understand clearly the requirement of the software to the client. Here the interaction between the client and the developer along with the functional experts will be occurred. After made a clear structure move to the next one.
  • Planning and design: After functional analysis is done, the software development project is split into the tasks. Every task will have a time period. As per that the development will be occurred. If the project is delays the budget will be increase. So the planning is crucial. Designing is building the architecture of the project. Here the possible wrongs will be minimized.
  • Development: The Actual part of development starts here. The development is coding the software as per the architecture. When the tasks are completed merge them into a single program. If the architecture and the planning are properly done development become easy. The development will be depends upon the ability of the programmer to complete quickly and effectively.
  • Testing: Testing will be done at different stages. In the beginning when the task is completed immediately one testing will be occurred. Second one is after merged the tasks. After at the time of project completion. At the time of implementation in front of client the testing completely done without errors.
  • Documentation: Documentation is the guide about the software features. Here every option and feature of the software will be documented. It is easily understandable format and language.
  • Training: If training is required to operate the software it will be provided to the employees at the time of implementation at the client. Mostly the documentation gives as material. When the employees are the functional experts, it is enough to give a brief of the functions and operations.
  • Maintenance: Once the above all stages are passed without any issue the maintenance will be begun. Here the updates to the software will be provided. The updates are for newly discovered issues, extra/new requirements.

These are the common following steps to develop medium and large software applications.

Use of Radiography (X-ray) in Dentistry

Dental radiographs, x-rays are the pictures of the teeth and also bones and tissues that support teeth. These x-rays are taken for finding out the problem with the teeth, jaw and mouth. X-rays show things that are not easily visible during dental examination/checkup. In this article, we will discuss the types of dental x-rays in dentistry.

Types of dental X-ray procedures
There are two types of dental X-ray procedures, namely, extra oral (X-ray film outside the mouth) and intra oral (X-ray inside the mouth)

Intra Oral X-rays

These x-rays are commonly used by dentists. Intra oral x-rays allows a dentist to find out cavities, checking the health of the bone that surrounds teeth and also the roots of the teeth.
There are different types of Intra oral x-rays showing various aspects of the teeth.

1) PR (Periapical X-rays)
This x-ray shows full tooth, from the crown till the beyond of the tooth roots in the jaw. These x-rays are used for detecting any abnormalities in the structure of the entire tooth.

2) Occlusal X-rays
These are larger and shows full development of the tooth. Moreover, it reveals the whole arch of the teeth in lower or upper jaw as needed.

3) Bitewing
These X-rays are used for checking the teeth form crown upto the end roots. These X-ray procedure is helpful in finding the decay in between the teeth, gum disease and also tooth alignment problems. Sometime. It is used for measuring bone loss due to advanced stage of gum disease known as periodontitis.

Extra oral X-rays
This shows teeth but mainly focuses on jaw and skull. Extra oral x-rays are used to look for impacted tooth, monitoring growth and development of jaw and teeth, identifying problems in teeth and jaw and temporomandibular joint or other facial bones.

There are different types of extra oral x-rays:
1) CT (Computed tomography)
Also known as CT scan that shows the interior structure of the body. CT scans are performed in radiology centers or hospitals rather than in a dental office which is used for identifying problems with facial bones like fractures and tumors. Further, it is used for evaluation of bone for placing dental implants and complicated extractions. This will help surgeon avoid complications during surgery.

2) Panoramic X-rays
These X-rays show the whole mouth area which means all the teeth in lower as well as upper jaw in a single X-ray. There is a special x-ray machine for panoramic x-rays. The main focus of these X-rays is on the position of the emerged teeth as well as emerging ones and also identifying impacted tooth.

3) Cephalometric projections
These x-rays show the whole side of the head. Cephalometric projections are used to examine the  teeth with relation to jaw and facial bones. These type of X-rays are used by orthodontists to plan their treatment.

Types and Features of SSL Certificate

SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer. This protocol has been developed by Netscape. It is used to transmit private documents via Internet. It uses cryptographic system and having two keys to encrypt the data. The keys are public key and private key. The public key is known to everyone. The private key is known only to recipient of the message. Many websites using this protocol to obtain the confidential information like credit card numbers and banking transaction security codes. If the
site monitoring
Website or URL has an SSL connection, it will start with https instead of http. In this article, we will discuss the features of each type of SSL certificate.
  • High assurance certificate: The High assurance certificate is a normal type of certificate. To give this certificate, the authorities will check for validity business registration and the ownership of the domain name. These two are listed on the certificate. The visitors can see the ownership of the domain and the business which it runs. The validation to issue this certificate will take from an hour to a few days and it needs manual verification.
  • Low assurance certificate: The low assurance certificate is also known as domain validated certificate. These provide less assurance to the customers than the high assurance certificates. These are less expensive than the high assurance certificates.
4goodhosting.com - canadian web hosting from 4goodhosting
Domain validated certificates include the domain name only and not the business or organization name. The certificate can be issued instantly and the authorities will verify automatically by checking WHOIS record.
  • Extended validation: Extended validation certificates are a new type of certificates that are designed to prevent phishing attacks. Business authorization and extended validation of the business is required to order this certificate. The certificate is received within a few days or few weeks. The extended validation certificate will give more assurance than the high assurance certificate. When a website have this certificate the address bar display in green color.
  • Wildcard certificate: The wildcard certificate will work on all the mail domain extended or sub domain URLs. For example the wildcard certificate is taken for '*.domainname.com'. The business have the other domains like mail.domainname.com, www.domainname.com etc. This certificate will work regardless of changes on the * mark part.
Warranty:
Warranty while giving the purchase of a certificate is slightly different from the general warranty. Generally when a product is purchased the warranty is given to the customer to the product. In SSL certificate the warranty is actually to the end user. When the end user lose the money by deceive while transaction in the certified website, the certification authority will pay that amount to the end user. The warranty is differ from one authority to another.

These are the main types of SSL certificates available. These can be given by almost all the certificate issuing authorities. Based on the requirements of the website you can select the suitable type.

Enterprise Software Piracy

Planning to install software for your business? Beware of software pirates who sell you software illegally violating laws.

Piracy is an illegal procedure following, which you may have benefits for a short time but is risky. Enterprise software is also facing the threat of piracy. Some vendors without having knowledge of consequences can face charges for doing piracy. It is shocking that most large companies buy only one copy of software and install in many systems. Piracy is seen in most of the companies.

This article will deal with reasons for software piracy, effects due to piracy, types of piracy that can happen and importance of discouraging software piracy.

Reasons for piracy
First and foremost thing is cost will be reduced if you install buy a pirated software. You can install in more computers, unlike that is bought legally.

If the requirement is high, companies may not be able to buy them. They are attracted to low cost offers given by certain vendors. They can have savings and can invest that money for other businesses.

Types of piracy that commonly happen
  • Counterfeiting piracy – It is piracy involving duplication of packaged software. For example, piracy on compact discs, licensed agreements, registration cards etc.
  • Internet piracy – This is more common when you install a software via internet. Example, websites that offer free download options, auction sites, etc.
  • End user piracy – This involves buying one original copy and making many duplicates from it and using the copies on system of unauthorized person. Example, using original copy to install on many computers, copying original on many copies and selling them.
  • Hard disc loading piracy – Hard disc loading piracy involves loading software on hard discs without getting legal authentication.
  • Client server overuse piracy – This is like using of one original copy of software by many people at same time
Difficulties due to enterprise software piracy
It may make you feel happy but the happiness is temporary. By the time you realize and repent on what you have done, situation passes away from your hands.

Using pirated software will offer poor services, often engaged in repairs and assures low safety. It may damaged your entire computer sometimes.

There is problem of being hacked by virus, making processes slow and ultimately effect productivity of your business.

Threat for security – original software will offer highest security, whereas pirated software is always under risk of security. Your data might be stolen and official security systems like passwords and use them to open your documents.

Piracy can create a black mark on your identity – if customers come to know that you are using illegal services and software to serve them, there is a chance of loosing customers

Application Server and its Function

An application server acts like a mediator between the front end (user) and the back end (databases). Application server is a software program designed to serve clients connected to it. It processes the request and send services to them by applying business logic and accessing databases. Generally clients request for a business logic to use it and perform business operations. It uses different types of protocols to communicate with the client like HTTP, etc.

Application servers are capable of maintaining their own resources. They allow scalability and able to manage heavy workloads. Application server may also contain a web server. So, it can be said that an application server is a superset of web servers. 

The most important feature of application server is that it is very secure and security measures applied to the application server secures all other systems of the business because of its centralized behavior.

Application server can be installed in an organization in three ways
  • Application server can be integrated with the web server.
  • It can be plugged in whenever required as plug and play model.
  • Installed independently if affordable by the businesses.
Functions of application server:
Centralized
Application server is a centralized system. This means, all the computers connected to it can be controlled by application server. Any changes or upgrades to all the systems is made by using application server. Changes or upgrades done to the server automatically changes or upgrades all other systems. Providing security to the application server secures all other systems.

Supports website
Application servers when installed in an organization look after the website and maintain it.

Provides e-commerce application
An application server can manage and support the e-commerce of a business. E-commerce is used in businesses for selling and buying the products of a business through electronic devices like computers, mobile phones, etc.

Integration of code and data
As said before, application server is a mediator between user and the server. Any requests received by the application server from the client is processed by applying the procedural functions or code by accessing the data and then the service is delivered to the user.

Performance management
Application server follows typical client/server model. Hence, the transactions between the client and the server are quick and accurate. Application server is responsible for the performance of the network or group of computers connected to it. It manages the resources and databases and handles heavy workload so performance of the server is high.

Application servers provide many important features like security, scalability, increases the performance, handles heavy workload, etc. So, installing application server in any organization is helpful.

All you Need to Know about Website Downtime

The website plays a crucial role for the success of your business success. Therefore, it should be available and accessible to your end user without any errors. But, if they find that your website is down, they  get easily frustrated and move to your competitor's site. To avoid this situation, first you need to understand in-detail about the website downtime. In this post, you will see what is website downtime, different types of downtime, causes of website downtime, impact of website and preventive measures for website downtime.

What is website downtime?
public uptime statistics Website downtime refers to the time period when your website is not accessible by the end-users.

Types of website downtime: Basically, there are 3 types of website downtime you can see. Among which two of them are important in long run while the third one is a sign of caution which you need to avoid.
  • Planned website downtime: Generally, this is done for upgrading, rebooting and for other work. Your website hosting company will let you know in advance about this downtime.
  • Somewhat planned website downtime: It is a temporary one, which involves in repairing and installing programs when something is wrong in your site. Your web hosting company will inform you about this at the time of its occurrence.
  • Unplanned website downtime: This type of downtime occurs mainly due to insufficient space is in the server of the hosting company. Because of this reason, these hosting companies are not able to hold up on the number of website that they are hosting.
Causes of website downtime: There are number of reasons why your website is going down. Let's see here some of its reasons:
  • When your website hosting company is performing any planned up-gradations like software upgrades, hardware upgrades, operating system upgrade.
  • The other reasons for downtime are file corruptions, defective programs, application problems or when any part of a system fails or due to malicious hackers.
Impact of website downtime:
  • Search engine ranking:  Even after multiple attempts, if search engine crawlers are unable to access your site. It may de index your site permanently from the search results. However, it takes long time to get lost trust. Website monitoring can be a solution as a ray of hope to escape from this serious issues.
  • Continuous or persistent downtime can become a nightmare for business owners. Because it creates serious issues like loss of customers or leads, loss of sales, loss of money and membership.
Preventive measures of website downtime: Buying a backup DNS service
  • Buy a monitoring service
  • Always make database backups before touching the database
  • Make your site functional in pieces
  • Use source management to roll out updates

Effective Ways Of Banishing Stress

Stress can be a motivator or energizer. stress is the opposite of relaxation. Too much of bad stress can cause medical and social problems. Because the body responds to stress physically, bad stress causes the "fight or flight” reaction. Both positive and negative aspects of life can be equally stressful. Stress comes from the external forces in our lives that push our buttons and provoke extreme emotions.

Below are some of the tips for stress relief:
  • Take a Deep Breath by inhaling air through your nose and hold on for few seconds and exhale through your mouth. Breathing will oxygenates your blood which helps you to feel more relaxed instantly.
  • Never react negative to stressful situations because if you do so it makes you feel worse.   So, instead of reacting you count the numbers from 1 to 10 and step back.
  • Stand up and stretch your body so that your muscles will relax temporarily.
  • Smiling is also an another method for stress relief which makes you feel better.
  • Take some breaks by walking here and there that means (take a bathroom break or get a glass of water, see some plants, etc,.). Change focus to other things so that you won't see the original amount of stress at work.
  • Massage your left hand palm with right hand palm by making a circular motion with the thumb of the other or use a massage gadget.
  • Solve some mathematical problems by using a simple formulas by assigning some simple numbers on your own.
  • If any thing is going wrong, you don't be silence instead you question it for solving. So, thus makes you proactive.
  • Get plenty of rest and eat well so that you'll be able to handle stress better whenever it comes up.
  • Try to do some exercises like swimming, walking, and playing etc,.
  • Laughter is a great way to relieve stress. So, watch funny movies and read funny stories that can make you a good belly laugh.
Avoid unnecessary stress such as the people who stress you out, take control of your environment, etc,.

Is it Helpful to Feel Competitive in a Yoga Class?

In this fast moving world and the rapid changing generation it is necessary to be potentially competent in every walk of life. But when it comes to few things which are practiced for our well-being, is it really essential to be competent? In case of yoga, if you are attending a regular yoga class there are more than 100 members around you, who are practicing yoga for their respective benefits. In that case if you want to compete with the person beside you, who is practicing yoga for his own problem, do you think it is really helpful?

If you ask me I will definitely say “No”, to all the above questions. Even though, the person is suffering from the same problem like yours, it is not advised to compete with him in any ways. Let us see the reasons, why you should not compete.
  • Not all the body types are same.
  • Every body do not react in a similar way for different yogic postures.
  • Some bodies are more flexible whereas some take much time to become flexible.
  • Everyone are not comfortable in doing same postures.
These are few reasons which says that it is not good to compete with the fellow members.

What happens when you start comparing: The moment you start comparing with others, you feel it like a competition and try to do better than the other person. This makes you go against your capabilities and the capacities which lands you in injuries like muscle fractures, swelling and other internal fractures. Also your concentration is more on the fellow person's performance, due to which you will lack concentration on what you are practicing. This leads to zero or negative results even though you practice it for months and months. Because of this you do not find any change or betterment even after practicing yoga for longer durations and finally make your mind to discontinue the classes. Finally you become the victim for your own mistakes.

Hence, it is not advised to compete with the fellow members in the yoga class and instead it gives positive results when you start comparing your present performances with the past ones in order to see your own progress.
