Technology Association of Georgias Smart Energy Society Names Its 2014 Person, Company and Government Entity of the Year

Atlanta, Georgia. (PRWEB) December 10, 2014

The Technology Association of Georgias Smart Energy Society last week named the City of Valdosta as Georgias Smart Energy Government Entity of the Year, Advanced Control Systems as Georgias Smart Energy Company of the Year, and Pete Marte of Hannah Solar as Georgias Smart Energy Professional of the Year. The awards were presented as part of a gathering on December 5th to celebrate spectacular achievements in the energy industry by individuals, company and governments throughout Georgia.

Runners-up for the awards included: the Georgia Department of Corrections for Government Entity of the Year, Urjanet for Company of the Year, and Sanjoy Malik for Professional of the Year.

The City of Valdosta, represented by Larry Hanson, took the prize for their consistent energy saving initiatives and efforts to serve its residents and promote economic growth through sustainable and smart energy.

In 2011, and again in 2013, the City negotiated contracts for a total of 2.35 megawatts of solar photovoltaic energy at the Mud Creek Wastewater Treatment Facility, some of which can be sold back to the Georgia Power Company. Valdosta is one of five cities in Georgia to convert all street lights to LED, and will enjoy greater stability, longer bulb life and a significant reduction to the former $ 1.2 million budget to operate street lights throughout the City.

Utilizing cost-effective investments and creative conservation measures, the City of Valdosta Utilitys goal of 10 percent energy reduction will soon be a reality. The Energy Efficiency programs include Central Plant Improvements, Lift Station Upgrades, Smart Energy, Solar Energy, Control of Storm water Infiltration and Education and Training.

In accepting the award, Mr. Hanson stated that innovation is often a little ahead of regulation, and called on state-wide changes to encourage the type of success Valdosta is enjoying.

The Georgia Department of Corrections, the runner-up for the award, is the first state agency to implement a guaranteed energy performance contract. Their $ 4.5 million contract with Johnson Controls at Buford State Prison alone results in nearly $ 500,000 avoided costs per year and a 97% reduction in water use.

Brief Depression Questionnaires Could Lead to Unnecessary Antidepressant Prescriptions

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (PRWEB) September 10, 2014

Short questionnaires used to identify patients at risk for depression are linked with antidepressant medications being prescribed when they may not be needed, according to new research from UC Davis Health System published in the September-October issue of the Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine.

Known as brief depression symptom measures, the self-administered questionnaires are used in primary care settings to determine the frequency and severity of depression symptoms among patients. Several questionnaires have been developed to help reduce untreated depression, a serious mental illness that can jeopardize relationships, employment and quality of life and increase the risks of heart disease, drug abuse and suicide.

The UC Davis team was concerned that the questionnaires might lead to prescriptions for antidepressant medication being given to those who arent depressed. Antidepressants are effective in treating moderate-to-severe depression but can have significant side effects, including sexual dysfunction, sedation and anxiety. They also have to be taken over several months to be effective.

It is important to treat depression, but equally important to make sure those who get treatment actually need it, said Anthony Jerant, professor of family and community medicine at UC Davis and lead author of the study.

The exploratory study included 595 patients of primary care offices affiliated with Kaiser Permanente in Sacramento, San Francisco VA Medical Center, Sutter Medical Group in Sacramento, UC Davis, UC San Francisco and VA Northern California Healthcare System.

Patients selected for the study were considered at low risk for depression and therefore poor candidates for antidepressants, based on results of a widely-employed brief screening tool known as the Patient Health Questionnaire 9 (PHQ-9), which was administered by the research team. The screener, which includes questions about changes in sleep, concentration, energy and appetite, was completed the same day the patients had appointments to see their primary care physicians, who were unaware their patients had completed the PHQ-9.

Based on a review of medical records, the patients were divided into two groups: those who were asked during their doctors office visits to complete brief depression symptom questionnaires, besides the one administered by the researchers, and those who were not. The groups were compared in terms of rates of depression diagnoses and prescriptions for antidepressants received from their physicians.

Of the 545 patients who did not complete brief depression questionnaires during their doctors office visits, 10.5 percent were diagnosed with depression and 3.8 percent were prescribed antidepressants.

Of the 50 patients who completed brief depression questionnaires during their doctors office visits, 20 percent were diagnosed with depression and 12 percent were prescribed antidepressants.

Jerant said the study highlights the need for research to determine the best ways to apply brief depression questionnaires in daily practice, as use of the screeners tripled the likelihood that patients in the study who were not apt to be depressed would receive depression treatment.

Part of the problem could be in how questionnaire results are interpreted, Jerant said. Depression symptoms such as insomnia, fatigue and poor concentration are associated with many health conditions.

The questionnaires arent diagnostic in the sense that theres a certain score that means the patient definitely does or does not have depression, Jerant said. Formal interviews are required to help doctors decide whether a patients fatigue, for instance, is caused by depression. That fatigue could also be due to chronic lung or heart disease. It could also be due to an adjustment disorder that is usually transient and isnt likely to respond to antidepressants. We need to give providers good guidance on how to use brief symptom measures in evaluating patients and making treatment decisions.

Additional study researchers were senior author Peter Franks and co-authors Richard Kravitz, Erik Fernandez y Garcia, Camille Cipri, Denyse Nishio, Anca Knoepfler, M. Kaleo Wooddell and Victor Baquero of UC Davis, and Mitchell Feldman of UC San Francisco. Their research was supported by grant 1R01MH079387 from the National Institute of Mental Health.

When one Spouse Strays, Should the Other Stay? Expert advice and tips from Relationship Therapist Dr. Daniel Watter on coping with infidelity

Parsippany, NJ (PRWEB) December 05, 2014

Marriage is supposed to be a permanent situation, based on things like trust and fidelity as well as shared diaper changes and mortgage payments. But what if one partner has an affair essentially breaking the rules on trust and fidelity in a single act (or worse yet, in many acts)? How can both partners put the episode behind them and keep the marriage intact? And is reconciliation even the right answer?

According to Dr. Daniel Watter, a clinical psychologist and specialist in sexual and relationship problems with Morris Psychological Group, this is one of the toughest situations for anyone to face, whether he or she is the cheater or the cheated-on. Virtually everyone who gets married does so expecting to be exclusive, both sexually and emotionally, with their spouse, he says. Research shows that 99 percent of people expect their spouses to be faithful. But expectations dont necessarily equate with behavior, as evidenced by the statistics on married people who cheat: as many as 40 percent, depending on whose numbers you believe. Obviously, that kind of action can have devastating effects on the non-cheating spouse, Dr. Watter continues, so much so that affairs are blamed for marital separation by 31 percent of men and 45 percent of women. When it comes to divorce, extramarital liaisons are the number-one reason cited.

So can a post-infidelity relationship survive? And should it?

I think the biggest obstacle that couples face after one partner has cheated isnt even the sexual indiscretion, Dr. Watter says. Its the betrayal, the destruction of trust that the indiscretion causes. The cheated-on spouse is often overwhelmed by feelings or hurt, anger, and resentment, while the cheating spouse may feel ashamed and defensive or belligerent. One person desperately needs to talk about his or her feelings, and the other one cant bear to think about them. Hardly the climate in which to have a healthy conversation, Dr. Watter says. Not surprisingly, there are many cases in which one or the other spouse simply cant reconcile those feelings and the trust can never be repaired. But in others cases, if both partners are willing to put in the work, the trustand the marriagecan be rebuilt, he says.

Tips for Staying in a Marriage after Infidelity

Here are Dr. Watters tips on how to cope with a partners infidelityand what to do with the marriage:

End it. The first step must be to end the affair, completely and irrevocably. No more contact with the other woman (or man), no matter what.

Keep talking. Despite what Grandma might have told you, time doesnt heal all wounds. Waiting for emotions to cool or situations to settle down is a terrible strategy, Dr. Watter says. You cant just move on from something like this, he says. True reconciliation requires effort, from both partners.

Consider your motives. Staying in a marriage or relationship shouldnt be a given, Dr. Watter says. In some cases, the cheating victim will blamer herself or himself for the affair and stay in the relationship out of a sense of guilt or insecurity. In other cases, he says, spouses decide to stay together because they have children. But you need to be completely honest with yourself and with your spouse, he says. Its much better to be alone and feel good about yourself than to be in a relationship where youre miserable.

Get help. Statistics show that couples facing an infidelity crisis do much better with professional counseling. Confronting harsh truthsabout ourselves as well as people we loveis never easy, Dr. Watter says. A professional can guide you past the anger and recriminations and help you both break through and find your way to a better place, whether its together or not.

Daniel N. Watter, Ed.D. specializes in the treatment of individuals and couples experiencing sexual and/or relationship problems. Morris Psychological Group, P.A. in Parsippany, NJ offers a wide range of therapy and evaluation services to adults, children and adolescents.

Endocrine Testing Market: Industry Analysis and Forecast 2018

Albany, New York (PRWEB) September 09, 2014

The endocrine system is comprised of endocrine glands as well as secretor organs that are responsible for releasing hormones into the blood stream directly. The proper functioning of the endocrine system is central to the regulation of various important body mechanisms such as emotional and sexual development, growth, as well as metabolism. The endocrine system also enables the body to handle stress as well as certain other cellular mechanisms by working in sync with the nervous system.

Hormones are often termed as the chemical messengers of the body. They relay information and instructions from one cell set in the body to another. However, hormones can only communicate with or act on body cells that feature the genetic programming to receive this information and instructions, and respond to it.

The ideal level of hormones in the body can sometimes change because of factors such as a change in the mineral level or level of body fluids, besides other factors such as infection and stress. It is possible to assess the exact hormone levels in the body by performing various types of endocrine tests.

The significance of endocrine tests
A surge or fall in hormone levels in the body can be accurately determined by endocrine tests. Through these tests, it is possible to ascertain both hyposecretion as well as hypersecretion of hormones into the blood. An imbalance in hormones could be the cause of various endocrine-related disorders such as diabetes and sexual dysfunction among others.

As the number of people suffering from obesity, diabetes and infertility rise worldwide, it has paved the way for the growth of endocrine test kits. The growing acceptance of the use of such kits has to a certain extent contributed to this growth too.

Browse the full Article, here:

In addition to endocrine test kits, the market has been introduced to various diagnostic platforms that are based on advanced technologies that have made testing more convenient and rapid. A growing healthcare awareness among people worldwide is yet another factor responsible for propelling growth in this market. At the same time, there prevail certain market restraints such as complicated and rigid reimbursement policies and high development costs. These factors collectively hamper the ideal growth of the global endocrine testing market.

Growth sectors within the Endocrine Testing Market
Endocrine tests continue to remain instrumental in detecting abnormal hormone levels in the blood stream. Within the endocrine tests market, the segment that is likely to witness the highest growth up to 2019 is that of insulin tests primarily driven by the growing incidence of diabetes among people worldwide. The International Diabetes Federation (IDF) estimates that the number of diabetics in the world will reach 592 million by 2035. Reports also show that approximately 80% of those suffering from diabetes live in nations that are classified as having low or middle income.

The following tests constituted the largest markets within the endocrine tests sector:

Insulin tests are expected to record the highest growth rate during the forecast period as the global incidence of diabetes grows
Tests for thyroid-stimulating hormones are likely to occupy the second highest growth rate over the period of the forecast as thyroid disorders rise and their connection with cardiovascular disorders emerges strongly
The third position is expected to be occupied by follicle stimulating hormone tests
The fourth position within the endocrine tests market is expected to be held by human chorionic Gonadotropin test

Get report sample PDF copy from here:

The demand for diagnostic technologies is expected to grow at varying rates. The fastest growing among these is expected to be the tandem mass spectrometry segment, followed by immunoassays and sensor technologies. However, the market for these test types could be hampered by their high costs and the considerable expenses involved in R&D.

Asia-Pacific is expected to emerge as the fastest growing region for the Endocrine Tests market over the forecast period, because of factors such as growing awareness of healthcare, large patient pool, a growing disposable income and a healthy flow of investments by key market players.

What's In My, really, what's in there?

Name: Annette
Location: Kuwait

Clockwise, from left: my favorite Fossil purse; a pile of receipts from the grocery store; underpants, shorts and wipes for my recently potty-trained son; a ribbon of unknown origin; Dramamine; my husband's necktie, my sunglasses and a wiper thing; a pouch with personal items; lipsticks; chapsticks; eyedrops (it gets dusty here); a pen that I can NEVER find when I need; a handful of photos of family; a tiny green truck; my phone (ok, that's just the case, I used the phone to take this photo); a bundle of business cards from the doctor's office, my husband's office and my eldest son's school; the brown and purple wallet that I don't really love but haven't gotten around to replacing; several photo id cards (civil identity card, Kuwait driver's license, Idaho Driver's license (with an AWESOME picture), private medical insurance card, government medical insurance card);  Kuwaiti fils (the coins) and dinars (the notes). In the center you can see two sets of keys with my Ron Weasley Lego keychain (Weasley is our king!); a small piece of beach glass for my collection; a black bat ring from Halloween and a pink plastic ring from my daughter's bling collection; an inordinate amount of sanitzing hand wipes and hand sanitizer; two packs of TERRIBLE chewing gum that a cashier recently gave me as change when he didn't have any small coins; and a string of prize coupons from a local fun place and the cards from the same.
Not pictured: several handfuls of sand and crumbs, a wad of chewing gum in a piece of tissue, twenty-thousand smaller receipts, twenty-two thousand identity cards for the children and tissue (because no matter how many packs of tissue I put in, there is never any in my purse when my kids have got drippy noses.)

What's in My Purse {one never knows}


My bag is pretty much the family's, in that at least one of them is always asking:  "Hey, could you stick this in your purse?" It's normal to find my husband's phone, or keys, or the kids' favorite toys or lip gloss, or a dozen other items.

Today, I give you all a rare glimpse into said purse.  I know, exciting stuff I'm sure!  We have the following items:  wallet, bracelet 
{that I wore to work last Thursday}, Bath & Body Works Lotion, bobby pins, kids' nail polishes, BC Powder {it works!}, and more.  Plus, you may have noticed my new craft punch {arrow} or that I have a 10% off coupon for one of my favorite shops {Mindy Mae's Market}.  I even have a Littlest Pet Shop brochure, highlighted with all the pets my oldest would like {Wasn't that sweet of make sure I knew, lol}  

So.....that's it for my purse.  What's in YOURS?

Nighttime - soap opera

Name: Audrey
Location: Curitiba, Brazil

                Carrossel is a mexican soap opera I watched (dubbed in Portuguese) when I was a kid in 1991 and that has been rewritten and retaped (with Brazilian actors now) by a Brazilian TV channel since last year. Now my daugther watches it every night and she loves it. It is about a loving teacher (professora Helena) that goes way beyond the classroom to teach good virtues to her kids in the most different, dramatic, fiction filled ways. Don't tell anyone but we cried when professora Helena left the school for a better paying job. Of course she returned to her old job about 10 chapters later...
                It really can be cute and I must admit I have learned to enjoy wathcing it again. It is on every night at 8:30 pm and she (we) can´t miss it. So, like every good Brazilian, our nighttimes include soap opera watching. But at least this is a 'good', decent one.
