Welcoming TOPYX on how Corporations Handle Learning

Many corporations have cut budgets for travel and events. They used to use them to bring their own people to places where they would get some good learning on updated practices and procedures, safety standards, regulations, how-to’s and many other disciplines. This was thought to build teams, and it does have its merits when coming to having fun as a group because it’s usually the nightlife at these events that brings the people together. But at what cost? They would get a lot of good notes in their notebooks, but those notebooks get back to the main office and collect dust. Not a good plan!

Corporations shifting to the elearning model of bringing information to employees

Instead of bringing their employees and management to events, many business executives, especially at the enterprise level have opted to purchase a system that keeps all the information on-demand. The event mentality has created data decay from the employees hearing it, writing some of it down, then the information is no longer accessible to anyone else on the team except for the notebook owned by the particular individual who attended a certain workshop. In fact, many people skip out on these breakout sessions and therefore lose out on business because of it. Enter the corporate e-learning model of educating people in a company. This is one of the greatest and most effective investments corporations are now making, so that not only is their information stored in a secure facility, it’s always there and they own it. Get more info from Topyx.

Owning the information vs. hearing once from a trade show

When attending an event, the information belongs to the individuals at the front of the classroom teaching. Furthermore, there is a disconnect between the information and application at the individual or corporate level because it is generic. When trying to appeal to a larger audience, the presenters are forced to remove some of the details that made sense for their own situations, leaving it up to the hearer to assimilate the information into their own situation.

Some Benefits of e-learning
  • All your information, on-demand
  • Creates community across corporations
  • Increases collaboration
  • Increases productivity and “ownership”
  • Increases accountability
  • Gives users a sense of belonging
  • Affordable in the long run
Here’s one good example of a situation that e-learning can help with:

The next time your company has opportunity to travel to a convention or trade show, consider the total costs of your booths, hotel rooms, food, travel etc… Many times this can be $60,000 to $100,000 or more for the average group of 15 attendees from your organization.

How To Choose The Right Carlsbad Chiropractor For Your Needs

You can achieve an all-natural approach to pain relief by finding a chiropractor that you can trust. Back pain can seriously hinder your ability to live your life, and oftentimes, pain medications don’t work as well as they should. A chiropractor can help bring about pain relief by using body manipulations or instruments. However, you do have to realize that one wrong move can break a bone, injure a muscle, or lead to paralysis, which is why you should always do research before involving yourself in chiropractic care.

Know What You Want To Get Out Of Your Visits

The first thing to consider when choosing a chiropractor is the type of methods he or she will use. Some use joint-popping manipulations to help relieve tension on your spine and relieve joint paint. Other chiropractors employ the help of medical instruments to help relieve your pain.

Within a first few visits, you should feel a difference in your condition and the pain should be less obvious to you. It is important to ask any potential chiropractors you’re looking to work with when you can expect results. A good chiropractor will tell you that within a few short weeks your condition should improve. However, you do have to keep in mind that there are permanent conditions like arthritis and scoliosis that can only be controlled and not cured.

Ensure The Chiropractor Is Well Educated

Before laying on the medical table, it is important to know that you will be in the hands of someone with a degree and experience in the field. Most chiropractors will have attended a four year college or university and hold at least a bachelor’s degree. Many take their education a step further by obtaining post graduate certifications in pediatrics or sports therapy.

Payment Plans with Carlsbad Chiropractor

Chiropractic care is not cheap, and if you want to get the most out of your visits, you will need to go at least three times per week for the first few months. However, sessions can get costly, which is why it’s important to inquire about potential payment plans; unless of course you have the budget to pay upfront.

As with anything relating to your health, it is crucial to pick the right chiropractic care practitioner. If the chiropractor is professional, he or she will have no problem honestly answering your questions or concerns, and will take responsibility for the treatment plan.

The History and New Technologies of Orthodontics

You’ve probably had braces – or you know someone who has. We stumbled upon a site that covers the history and new technologies of orthodontics and what we found may shock you. There are two main take-aways from this website; the historical use of metal to fix teeth goes back thousands of years and the new technologies that no longer require metal as the main material for the composition of braces.

History of BracesOrthodontists are some of the bravest souls in the dental world because they are providing a service that is absolutely unique to each set of teeth they work on. On the website,, there are some “God-awful” historic pictures and some new technologies that have only been around for a few years that use ceramic treatments for folks who are getting braces. This is done so with color-matched materials that literally make the brackets invisible from the distance of only a few feet from the people who have them in their mouths. Getting braces is something that has been the source of embarrassment for teens all throughout the last century – but the payoff was always worth it. But during the time that braces were on, there have been plenty of jokes around the “railroad tracks” inside the mouths of individuals. To get more information, check out this video from an Irvine orthodontics office that goes into the details and interviews a real patient who has this new kind of technology at use in her mouth, straightening her teeth.

Orthodontists who Stay Progressive

An orthodontist who has been in the business for many years may not always be open to new ideas, even though they have great reviews and a good reputation. It is important to do some research to find out who in your area is serving up this kind of technology to their patients. We’re so certain that you’ll find a good fit that we are asking everyone who does take our advice to comment and share some pictures from their experience. Also, if you’d like to recommend your orthodontist for this website, please do let us know!

LASIK Changes the Landscape of the Face

LASIKNew technologies that have been driving the better procedures are generating a buzz among the optometry crowd. Thanks to the early adopters of the new technology, it is now mainstream and to the benefit of the greater good. We would like to point out that there are still great opportunities to improve on the already amazing technologies that are driving a new industrial applications that are becoming less and less invasive.

With the less invasive procedures, recovery times are much quicker than with legacy LASIK treatments. Without the use of blades in the new treatments, patients are able to go in for an outpatient procedure leaving them with nearly recovered eyes upon leaving. The micro surgery using the new laser technology is able to bypass certain levels of the eye’s protective coverings and do its work immediately in the area of the retina where the operation targets. Feeling like one had surgery was one of the reasons many would-be patients may have put of getting the procedure done but the game has been changed.

So if you or a loved one are considering having your eye sight fixed and you’re ready to put the glasses down, then consider getting treatment from a reputable clinic like that listed above who keep up with contemporary technologies.

Online Bio Supplier from San Diego Helps in Disease Prevention

flu season vaccinationYou’ve heard it more frequently this month than any other month of the year. You’ve probably experienced it all to close to home. Coughing, coughing and more COUGHING! This is the time of the year when you need to brush up on your coughing etiquette – so here are some wise sayings to live by during the cold and flu season.

Where do Vaccinations Come From?

Vaccinations come from the testing of pathogens in order to generate the proper matching antibody. Laboratories across the globe use testing kits which contain different antibodies- reagents and ELISA kits from MyBioSource is located in San Diego and serves up the freshest testing kits (which all have a shelf life), now being used by labs and universities around the world for the study and prevention of disease spreading. Simply put, they are the ones who come up with vaccines.

If you’re wondering if you should get vaccinated for the flu, then you might want to read on. Getting vaccinated can not only protect you but the people you love. If you’re not in to getting vaccinated, at least find some flu remedies. If you haven’t got a plan for vaccinating or remedies, perhaps you already have all you need inside of your body to fight the flu and colds off and you won’t need to worry about any of it.

Have you ever met an older person who just seemed to be made of steel? Never sick, never down with a cold or anything viral? We’ve all met people like this and the reason they’re going to continue fighting these kinds of sicknesses is largely because their immune system has what is referred to as polyclonal antibodies or antiserum, which creates a powerful force in your body that combats the evils of viruses and other communicable diseases. Evidently there are a lot of people afraid of getting Ebola this year because of some recent news hype. Honestly it’s not worth fretting over because it’s just not going to take of like the wildfire they’re trying to get us to fear.

That being said, there are still reasons for precaution, especially if you’re older or have young children.

In the case that you would like to learn more about what is being done in the world of organic chemistry and biology to create immunities against the 2015 flu bugs, or to get involved yourself, there are universities all over the country (US) right now conducting all kinds of research around new pathogens. Interesting fun fact: they introduce the pathogen into animals, allow their bodies to recover from the sickness, then collect the immunity material in order to inoculate humans with. Of course these have to be mammals that have compatible DNA to humans but nevertheless they’re using them to help in the fight against viruses worldwide.

So if you’re on the fence about getting vaccinated, I always stear clear of the needle whenever possible and recommend others to make sure you’re getting plenty of antioxidants through vitamin C (rose hips) or antioxidant alkaline water plus your regular vitamins and minerals. Good luck!

lightning rodsInstalling the lightning protection system begins with finding a spot on your roof about 24″ from the roof edge.

Live Better: Important Water Nutrition Advice For People

Proper nutrition plays a huge role in the way we feel each day. It is connected to our weight, to our health and fitness, and to our energy quantities. It even affects our way of thinking. This article will give you some important tips about your skill to get the essential nutrients that a body craves.

A good tip to assist you lose weight is to avoid fad diets like the Atkins diet. The Atkins diet has garnered a lot of popularity over the years but it is far from healthy and it’s not something you are able to follow long term. Instead, try following a more moderate diet including juicing from water filtered through everpure filters.

If you are attempting to eat as cheaply as possible, but still want to be healthy, purchase a variety of foods associated with fortified breakfast cereals. Vitamins and minerals are added and it’s the same as if you’re taking a multivitamin. One box provides you with 4 or 5 meals so the cost per meal is under one dollar for you.

Try not to buy into the idea that fresh fruit juices and vegetable juices are a wholesome beverage option. Many store-obtained varieties are riddled with sweets, sodium, and other additives that leave them no better than a soda. It is best to stick to whole fruits. Nevertheless, if you do desire fruit juice, the best way is to produce your own with a juicer and fresh fruit and vegetables.

If you want to eat more nutritious foods at your home and away, you live within very propitious times. Although our markets are filled with an endless array of nutrient-poor food, you can also choose from a wide variety of much healthier options than are available, from low-carb high-fiber tortillas (yes, think quesadilla) to power-packed super fruit smoothies including your water drink. For people too busy to cut up vegetables for work lunches, you can buy little packages of pre-cut clean veggies and dip. In a lot of ways, while it has become harder to dodge every one of the unhealthy choices, it has also become exponentially more convenient to find better nutritional choices.

Convenience Chain takes note of Healthier Market

Have you been to a 7-11 recently? You will not believe the radical transformation they have undergone over the last several years. I think it’s due to the nutrition education kids started getting in school – the convenience chain had not been selling much junk food so they re-branded and are now serving healthy choices for snacks.

As stated at the start, nutrition plays a huge role inside our lives because it is what gives us the energy we need to get through the day, and also plays a huge role in our health, weight and mood. If you take the tips given here and apply them to your life, you will most surely be healthier and happier!
