Do you know who legally owns your domain name? Most companies are dumbfounded when they find out who does! It can happen to anyone, even us! That’s right, we fell victim as well and did not even realize it until we tried to help out a client.A good and honest web developer or web host will register your domain name in YOUR name rather than their company or personal name. Unfortunately, many don’t and it can be very difficult to gain control and some may actually hold your name ransom!What a nightmare! You’ve spent a lot of money on advertising and marketing to build your brand name around your website. Worse yet, if your domain name expires without your knowledge, your website will go off-line automatically. When your domain name is inactive, you run the risk of someone else purchasing it!So how can you find who actually owns your domain name and when it expires? Go to Network Solutions or whois and run a simple check to see if the registrant is you. Make sure to verify the address, phone number and email address as yours. The person listed as billing contact will actually be responsible for the renewal fee and if they don’t pay, for whatever reason, you can lose your domain name!Even more criminal is the act of making the owner unlisted and contact information private. The purpose of this service is that they act as a go between, keeping the owners contact information private, for a yearly fee. This service makes the process of domain transfer virtually impossible and about your only option is to let the domain name expire. Hopefully, you can purchase it back and make sure not to automatically renew the privacy setting.What can you do if you discover you are not the owner of your domain name? First, say a prayer, then contact the owner as soon as possible and try to resolve the situation. Most times, if you open an account with the same host provider as the web developer who owns your name, then they can easily transfer the domain name without any fee. If the owner or hostage taker is a straight shooter, they should make the transfer in a week or so. If you have no success, you may need to contact an attorney and hope they can set you FREE, but it won’t be cheap!
In the world of cosmetic lasers, technology has finally caught up with people’s expectations. Laser therapy is one of the fastest expanding and most exciting fields in the cosmetic arena. In the past, those seeking to turn back the hands of time had to turn to Botox / Restylane injections, harmful chemicals or expensive medical procedures. But today, more and more are turning to the rejuvenating power of light therapy.To understand how lasers work, we first have to understand what a laser is. “Laser” is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. The idea of a laser can be traced back to Albert Einstein’s theoretical work in the beginning of the 20th century. He predicted that it would be possible to stimulate electrons to emit light of a specific wavelength. Laser light is therefore light, but a very specific type of light.For us, the most natural form of healing light is the sun. The beneficial light energy from the sun is a primary source of cellular energy for most life forms on earth. Sunlight is non-coherent light that encompasses light ranging from the ultraviolet range to the infrared range and everything in between (visible light range). The light energy emitted by laser devices is coherent monochrome light oscillating in harmony that falls into specific wavelengths already found in the spectrum of sunlight, but does not include skin-damaging ultraviolet A and B wavelengths. The different laser wavelengths dictate the depth of penetration through specific substances (such as human tissue). This form of light provides better penetration of the top layers of the skin and can stimulate the low layers of the skin where problems normally form. With cosmetic lasers the light energy is absorbed into the skin where the cells use it to product ATP or cellular energy. The light also helps stimulate collagen, blood flow and other healing regenerative mechanisms.Low-level laser therapy has come a long way since Einstein’s theories, and devices that emit low-level laser light in a therapeutic fashion have left the hospital and doctor’s office and hit the shelves of stores. Skepticism still remains however, on the effectiveness and safety of such laser devices for cosmetic use. Let’s examine some basic essentials about low-level lasers and debunk some misconceptions.Low-Level Lasers are SafeLow-level lasers have been used as a therapeutic modality in the international medical field for over 30 years. In the 30+ years of low-level laser usage, no side effects or contraindications are known or have ever been reported.Unlike high powered surgical lasers, low-level lasers are safe and painless. Most devices can be used on all skin types and cause no heat or sensation. Although the technology is the same, the safety standards and compliances that devices must adhere to make personal lasers less powerful and much gentler than lasers found in spas and skin care centers.Naturally Stimulate the SkinThe true key to the benefits of laser light is found in its effects in the cell. And being that the human body is made up of approximately FIVE TRILLION cells, it is easy to understand how poor performance on a cellular level can affect the body. Laser light has been shown to affect the body on a biological and cellular level through more effective and faster cell renewal, absorption of vital nutrients, increased collagen production, stimulation of the mitochondria (cellular healing) and ATP (energy) production. In layman terms, low-level lasers feed cells energy and allow them to regenerate in a healthy fashion.Effectiveness of Low-Level LasersStudies now confirm these biological and cellular processes. A recent study at the Department of Biomedical Engineering, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, China shows that “laser treatments led to marked improvements in dermal layer thickness and collagen fiber density”. Collagen is a key to anti-aging treatments. Collagen is a protein structure that is responsible for skin strength and elasticity, and its degradation leads to wrinkles that accompany aging.Another study at the Laser and Skin Surgery Center of New York came to the conclusion that “nonablative (low-level laser) procedures are effective in the treatment of photoaging and acne scarring. As technology in nonablative therapies continues to evolve, future laser and light sources may yield even more favorable results.”What to ExpectDoctors, professionals and users all agree that laser light can be beneficial for cosmetic use, but what kind of results can you expect?First off, being that personal low-level lasers have to adhere to power restrictions to make them safe for home use, you can’t expect the same results as with professional treatments. A number of spas now sell personal low-level laser devices as a compliment to spa treatments like photofacials, Thermage and other laser services.You also have to take into account that for improvements to occur, daily use is required (5-15 minutes, 2 times daily). The effects of such personal lasers are accumulative, meaning that the more often and consistent you are with treatments, the better the results. As one satisfied user of a personal cosmetic laser commented, “The improvement around my eyes was the first thing I noticed. I also have scar tissue that has vanished. I am extremely happy with my laser. Of course, if you don’t want to find the time to use it twice daily, the results won’t be as great. I am 61 years young and my skin looks great. “As more people look to defy the aging process and begin to stray away from costly and potentially harmful methods, personal low-level lasers will continue to grow in popularity. Efficacy and safety of these lasers have been confirmed, but it’s still no magic pill. In the end, one has to expect realistic improvements with such devices and realize that aging is a part of life that there will never be a cure for. But at least now with emerging Low Level Laser technologies you can really age gracefully and with style.
For medical facilities and hospitals storage is one of the most vital components of their technological arsenal because they must have secure and large storage options for all of the thousands of patient digital records created each year. It is for this reason that many turn to a DICOM archive.This type of archive can grow as your practice grows. You can start with one terabyte of storage space, and then expand to tens of terabytes as the need arises.Another benefit that comes from using a DICOM archive is that format creates compatibility among many different types of medical equipment. If you routinely take digital images using a variety of modalities, such at PET, CT, MRI and others, you will need a way to get the images off the modalities and onto your viewers. This is where the DICOM format comes into play.This is a digital imaging format that has been designed around meeting the needs of medical digital imaging, and the good news is that there are PACS systems, viewers, different imaging systems, archives and distribution equipment and software available that can translate DICOM format, making it possible to achieve compatibility among these disparate tools.A digital image archive like this allows you to store your images on a server. This server may be onsite at your hospital or medical office, or offsite. Both are helpful, and the offsite option also enables your HIPPA compliance for disaster recovery of patient files.Dicom viewing can occur on a clinical workstation at your office, or on workstations throughout a network. If your viewing system is web-based, you can also use virtual private networks, which offer a secure means for referring physicians to send and receive digital medical images over the World Wide Web.As you can see, with all of the various places that information comes from and must go to in order to achieve excellent patient care, many medical facilities use a PACS system as their DICOM router. The router makes sure that information gets from the different modalities to the workstations, and if a RIS system is also in place, it ensures that your front office can schedule work orders and take patient information, and add that data to the digital images, so that a complete digital patient record is created, which can then be stored in your digital archive.By digitizing the process through the use of the DICOM format, storage of patient records and digital medical imaging has become a much more simple process than in years past.
They say every cloud has a silver lining – you get some benefit out of every bad thing that happens to you. When you’re very happy, you’re on cloud nine! If you aren’t paying attention in class, your teacher might tell you to get your head out of the clouds. If the authorities think you did it, you would be under a cloud of suspicion. These days, when your workforce is located in three different countries and five different cities connected by the internet, you’re practicing cloud-based staffing and utilizing cloud computing.Wait, what?That’s right. Utilizing a virtual workforce through cloud computing is becoming increasingly popular, because it allows businesses to access talent outside of the local area, it shortens time to market, and it allows for flexibility by giving access to files and data when working remotely and/or outside office hours. If this cloudy terminology is new to you, here is a basic definition to get you up to speed:According to Wikipedia, “Cloud computing refers to the use and access of multiple server-based computational resources via a digital network (WAN, Internet connection using the World Wide Web, etc.). Cloud users may access the server resources using a computer, netbook, pad computer, smart phone, or other device. In cloud computing, applications are provided and managed by the cloud server and data is also stored remotely in the cloud configuration. Users do not download and install applications on their own device or computer; all processing and storage is maintained by the cloud server. The online services may be offered from a cloud provider or by a private organization.”Cloud computing is what makes a successful virtual workforce, or “staff in the cloud” possible. Flexibility is a huge benefit of cloud computing, as is its ease of use. Cloud computing is often cheaper and less labor intensive because it’s online – and therefore the need for massive amounts of server space for storage is removed altogether (you’ll probably just see a slight increase in your monthly fee for more data storage). We could continue discussing the benefits of cloud computing; however, the point is it’s here to stay, along with cloud staffing. So legally speaking, what does this mean for your business?When choosing a cloud-based service provider that will allow you to sustain a virtual workforce there are many important points to ponder. You will need to thoroughly review the provider’s Service Agreement or Terms of Service in order to find out the following before signing up:• Where is the actual data stored? (And we mean the geographic location of the company’s servers that house all of the data).• How many servers does the company have?• What security measures are in place to prevent hackers from accessing the data?• What notification procedures are used by the company to alert customers of a data breach?• Who has access to your data?• Are customers able to back-up the data stored on the cloud on their own servers?• How do you migrate the data from the cloud if you decide to cancel the service?If you take these questions into consideration and get solid satisfactory answers, you’re ready to hit the cloud!
