Because Size Matters: SanDisk Develops ‘Largest Ever’ SD Memory Card

San DiskSanDisk corporation launched the world’s highest capacity SD memory card ever, marketed as SanDisk Extreme Pro SDXC UHS-I.

Technology Breakthrough

The new product, according to the company, is capable of storing data up to 512 GB.

Its latest innovation will soon go on sale for $800.

SanDisk’s new product surpasses the capacity of the current memory cards on the market, ranging from 8 GB to 128 GB.

These professionals need a large storage capacity because they short in ultra- high definition videos and high-speed burst mode photography.

“4K Ultra HD is an example of a technology that is pushing us to develop new storage solutions capable of handling massive file sizes,” said Dinesh Bahal, vice-president of product marketing at SanDisk, in a press release.

Promoting Safety inside Dental Clinics: A Multi-Step Sequential Process of Decontamination

safe dental clinicDiseases and viruses can be transferred in dental clinics from patient to patient or from patient to dental health care worker. This is why proper sterilization and cleanliness have been an integral part of dental practice for many years.

It’s important to have specific strategies regarding the prevention of disease transmission among dental healthcare workers and their patients. Below is a multi-step sequential process of decontaminating dental equipment pieces and instruments:

Transporting

Keep the handling of all contaminated instruments to a minimum. You must carry the equipment in a covered container. Every staff has to make sure there’s no contact between contaminated instruments and sterilized tools.

Cleaning and Decontaminating

The person in charge of disinfecting all the instruments must thoroughly clean them to remove visible deposits. Preferably, the dental worker should use washers or disinfects like Optim 33 TB, as they’re more efficient at pre-sterilization cleaning compared to ultrasonic cleaners.

Preparing and Packing

Before packing the instruments, the dental worker must make sure all tools are dry. Also, check for debris and damages by testing out if the tools are still working properly or not.

Sterilizing Dental Instruments

Dental workers must sterilize all contaminated instruments after use. Also, decontaminate even those tools and equipment pieces you will need to send for repair before you dispatch them. Sterilization methods must be effective against all types of pathogens.

Autoclave is the method of choice for most instruments. It uses one of the following time-temperature combinations: 134-138°c for 3 minutes, 126-129°c for 10 minutes, and 121-124°c for 15 minutes.

Sterilizing of Hand Pieces

It’s mandatory to sterilize hand pieces. Autoclaves hand pieces are available. You must first clean them and sterilize after each patient. If you are to use manual cleaning, use water and detergent. But it’s preferable to go for a pre-sterilization cleaning machine.

Storage

You should store wrapped sterilized instruments in covered or closed areas. Make sure you don’t place them near or under the sink where they can become wet.

Dental workers and patients are exposed to a number of pathogenic microorganisms via contact with oral and respiratory secretions or blood. Promote safety inside the dental clinic by following the above tips.

Crunching the Numbers on Buying a Car

Crunching the Numbers on Buying a Car

silver carDeciding on the make, model, and color of a car is easy, but the real challenge comes when you have to decide on your financing options. Most people automatically agree to the deal with the lowest interest. Nevertheless, what you don’t know can cost you money – thousands of it. The point is, regardless if you’re buying a used car or a brand new one, you have to crunch the numbers first.

Yes, we all know how math can be a pain, but a little effort on your part can save a hefty amount of cash. But before you do anything, you should first learn how car financing works. Once you understand the ins and outs of the contract, only then can you crunch the numbers.

The first consideration you have is the total amount of the car. Government figures say that the average for a new one is at $31,000, while used cars cost $17,000 via a dealership.

Most people go with auto financing options. Suppose you went for a $30,000 loan payable in five years, you have to pay around $566 every month. By the end of the loan, you would have shelled out $33,960, the $3,960 of which is pure interest. This doesn’t even include the insurance premium you pay on a monthly basis.

Now, although uncommon, buying the car in cash can save you some money. There would be the need to save a hefty amount, but it could be beneficial in the long run. If you aren’t in a rush to buy a vehicle, you could can as much as you can before you apply for a loan.

Another good strategy is to buy a used car and sell it afterwards. The price may be lower, but it will certainly cut a huge chunk in the next loan you will make – maybe this time for a new car.

With the right strategy, you can make your car’s value worth your time and effort. Think carefully and crunch the numbers first to make sure that you are making a wise purchase.

What Dry Mouth Can Do to Your Oral Health

What Dry Mouth Can Do to Your Oral Health

man's mouthThere are times when your mouth feels uncomfortably dry. This happens when your mouth fails to produce enough saliva in your mouth. In dentistry, this condition is called xerostomia.

What xerostomia does to your oral health

At first glance, having a dry mouth doesn’t seem to give you problems. The issue, however, is when you experience prolonged periods with minimal saliva content in your mouth. As we all know, saliva plays a role in maintaining the acid and bacteria levels in the mouth. Without an adequate amount of it, bacteria would begin to thrive and cause dental problems. Put simply, xerostomia may pave the way for different cases of tooth decay, gum disease, and mouth infections like thrush.

What causes xerostomia

Different factors may contribute to your mouth’s lack of saliva. Nerve damage from a surgery or injury involving the head and the neck may cause this condition. Normally, xerostomia happens as a side effect of medications for conditions, such as obesity, epilepsy, asthma, nausea, allergies, depression, and anxiety; diseases such as HIV/AIDS, cystic fibrosis, arthritis, anaemia, and diabetes; and medical treatments like chemotherapy.

Do note that lifestyle is also a likely factor, especially when you smoke.

What you can do

Dentists advise that you maintain good dental hygiene practices to keep xerostomia in check. When you have this condition, you might want to change your toothbrush to one that has soft bristles. Brush twice a day using fluoridated toothpaste and floss daily. If you haven’t yet, schedule a follow up appointment with your dentist to check on your condition.

Moreover, you need to monitor your diet to ensure that you don’t aggravate the problem. Drink plenty of fluids, but avoid any form of alcohol (this includes mouthwash brands with alcohol). Regulate your consumption of spicy and salty foods, too. When you feel a strange dryness in your mouth, you can chew sugar-free gum with Xylitol to stimulate the flow of saliva without promoting cavity growth.

Although xerostomia may seem harmless, it may affect your oral health negatively. Be aware of the condition so you may address it properly.

Speaking in Dollar: Importance of Teaching Proper English to Kids

Speaking in Dollar: Importance of Teaching Proper English to Kids

Among the most commonly spoken languages in the world, English ranks third behind Mandarin Chinese and Spanish, with approximately 375 million people who consider it their first language. When you are travelling, you are most likely to meet at least one person who speaks in English, whether fluent or not.

children readingIn Australia, educational supplementary producers R.I.C. Publications note that learning materials should “provide comprehensive and structured daily practice of already-taught literacy and language skills in spelling, word study, punctuation and grammar in order to consolidate and develop a student’s ability and confidence to use English.”

Role of English Language in Life

Teaching your kids proper English can help them become successful in the future. As communication is a vital part of interaction, speaking the language fluently can increase the capability of your children to converse with a wider network of people. It will be easier for them to present their thoughts or ideas and relate with others as well.

Most jobs, especially those that cater to an international audience, call for applicants to speak fluently in English. Whether they will be pursuing a career in business, writing, or in any other industry, they will find the language an essential tool.

Importance of Learning as Early as Childhood

Learning a language is much easier during the toddler years, according to experts. Based on a theory by a renowned linguist, they are more capable to acquire a particular language because the language space in the brain is technically still unoccupied. That way, mentors can easily instill in them English language.

Most reading materials are usually written in English, along with most films and shows. In schools, almost every subject like mathematics is taught in English as well. That is why children should learn to speak in that tongue to understand things better and clearer.

Empower your children by teaching them to speak properly in English. This will help them achieve more and become successful in life. By learning the language, your children can get ahead of others and break the limits of learning capabilities.

Backlinks: Are They Helping or Harming Your Site?

Backlinks: Are They Helping or Harming Your Site?

backlinks removalMany site owners believe that the quantity of backlinks should be the main priority. Their biggest mistake, however, is that they’re setting aside the quality. When these and other factors don’t work together, search engines may not see the website’s relevance. The backlinks could even harm your site instead of helping it.

A low quality backlink that’s pointing to your website isn’t only bad for your site’s search engine ranking, but also for the credibility of your business. Nobody wants an unreliable external site link. After all, once a visitor gets an impression of a specific website, your link is part of it.

Here are some tips on removing bad backlinks from linkcleaners.com that could help your site:

Contact the Site Owner

One of the easiest ways to remove backlinks is to contact the site owners themselves. Browse through their About or Contact Us page to find out if they have a form or a designated e-mail for inquiries. Send a short but detailed message to let them know why you want to remove the backlink.

Make Room for Improvement

You can’t remove every bad backlink on the Internet; don’t waste your time. Find other things that can be helpful to your site instead, focusing on this goal alone. Bad backlinks are now easier to deal with because Google has made the job easy for you.

Improve your site by giving it an audit, so you can review its usability and conversion. A good user experience can improve backlinks from relevant sites. It’s advisable to maintain well-organized content to avoid link baiting by other poor quality links.

Backlinks can either help or harm your website’s rank on Google. As it’s difficult to monitor every backlink you receive, it’s best to be attentive and take action immediately before it damages your reputation. Use tools from Google or hire experts to make the job easier and less risky.
