Met Gala 2019 – The Best Costumes On The Red Carpet!

For this 2019 edition, Met Gala’s costume exhibition was entitled; Camp: Notes On Fashion. But why such a name? The theme was actually inspired by Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay, defining camp as the love of the unnatural… love for exaggeration! And we surely did have a whole load of exaggeration on the red carpet. Here are those who managed to keep up the trend while becoming the stars amongst the “galactic” show!

Met Gala 2019 – The Best Costumes On The Red Carpet!

Lady Gaga – When One Dress Is Too Mainstream!

The Camp theme was created for Lady Gaga! She didn’t resort to any meat dress this time… Mother Monster preferred being the extra in extravagant with four Brandon Maxwell dresses! She entered Met Gala with a giant Barbie-pink gown with five valets holding onto the trailing draperies. Just where everyone is supposed to pose for the pics, she revealed a stunning black strapless gown with a black umbrella. Third time was a charm, since she appeared in another barbie-pink slip dress and finally, Lady Gaga dropped the covers for some chic lingerie with sparkly tights. That’s quite a way to mark a presence!

Stress Effects On The Heart

In the August edition of 2004 of the GreatLife magazine, it gave a report on that Duke University Medical Center researchers based in Durham, N.C studied effects relating to stress on the heart in clinical trials which monitored how the heart reacted to common everyday events.

In the study, it was discovered that heightened feelings of sadness, anger, and stress in a person, the less their hearts were capable of responding effectively. It appeared that the pressure that was exerted on this organ caused by continual emotional downs and ups of stress had caused this muscle to stretch over and beyond its usual capacity in order to return to normal.

The Link Between Reduced Heart Rate And Depression

Another study has found a link between heart health that is impaired and depression. Researchers from Emory University, Atlanta, Ga and Yale University in New Haven, Conn, recently conducted a study on male twins (50 pairs) where they hooked each participant up to an electrocardiogram …

Hospitals And Batteries: What You Should Know

Hospitals And Batteries: What You Should KnowBatteries are the last thing on people’s minds when they are in a hospital. However, without batteries, there would be many barriers. There are many pieces of equipment that run on batteries, and this includes blood analyzers, heart monitors and infusion pumps, as well as defibrillators – so that’s a lot of Yuasa SWL2500EFR batteries!

Reliable power sources are a must for hospitals. If a power outage were to occur, then they’d need backup equipment. The backup equipment used often runs on batteries, hence another reason why they are so important.

The US market for medical devices is huge, and it generates over $100 billion in revenue, and that is one of the largest markets in the world. Equipment manufacturers do experience issues when it comes to devices that operate on batteries. Battery chemistry is one of those issues and so are discharge profiles.

Battery Chemistry

The main AC supply is what powers many devices used in hospitals. This means batteries receive only a shallow discharge before they are recharged. One basic flaw is lead acid that is sealed up and lead acid that is regulated by a valve. The issue is internal resistance.

When internal resistance increases, then a drop in voltage can occur due the sudden need of power. This is a bad thing and can cause a …

8 Top Tips For Buyers Looking For Property Development Renovation Projects1. Always double-check the figures.

Getting your calculations right is essential if you want to be successful in the risky business of property development. It is possible to make a small fortune in the business, but you can also lose everything and end up with huge debts if you don’t get your sums right. You need to know how much similar properties are selling for in the area, the cost of stamp duty, how much the refurbishment will cost from bricks to glass conservatory roof and what sort of additional fees you may be liable for. Once you have done some initial calculations, you need to figure out the profile of the buyers you will be reselling to, how much the renovated property will realistically sell for and determine if the projected profit margin is worth your time and investment. Property development projects are very capital intensive. If the game were easy, everyone would get into it and become millionaires.
