Maturation Modules and Investment: Arriving at the Optimum Trading Plan

Why smile? Indeed, I know that when a person smiles, he or she is happy. And so, when a child smiles, we know it is happy. Society has many such 'reward' modules.
Working is one form of occupation. Another is business. The businessman has less work to do. And the third kind of person is the investor. The investor has the least amount of work to do but he or she does not have guaranteed returns on the investment. They have to wait for their 'rewards' and in the meantime, anything can happen.These you could say are 'maturation' modules. It is very important category of society, especially when dealing with finance and commerce segment.
The investor has the easiest job of all. He can open a trading account online and begin trading within an hour. He can make Rs. 1,00,000 within 25 minutes. Compared to the 2 months that a businessman requires to make the same amount and the 10 years a working class man needs to arrive at the same figure, there is little wonder then that most people are willing to take the risk and go in for trading.
We see here how the investment to growth factor has crossed several barriers, namely class consciousness and reasonableness.
Reasonableness is the amount of money one accrues through working to the amount that one must spend on savings or investment. It is reasonable for a worker to save or invest a couple of hundred rupees every month. A businessman will save or invest a couple of thousand rupees. So, where does the investor draw the line to reasonableness when he or she is making an investment?
Granted that the person is neither a worker nor is he or she a businessperson, the investment clearly does not have any real basis. The consideration comes from the position of stock in the market and amount of time and effort the investor is willing to spend to make an investment. The last thing of course, will be the amount of money that he or she is able to lay their greedy hands on.
This kind of independence makes the person smile, and indeed why not?

Analysis of Mitochondrial Disease Life Expectancy and Symptoms

Learn about Mitochondrial Disease

This is a dreadful disease with no known cure until now. The energy cells of the body one by one stop doing their duty until the person dies. The exact time for the onset of this disease has not been established. However, the life function – producing energy from food and oxygen dies out. Mostly, children affected by mitochondrial disease cannot expect to survive beyond teenage years. The chances that adults develop this disease are pretty high. The first signs of the onset of disease are when the person becomes intolerant to exercise. 

Onset of disease and types

This ailment affects the innermost cell structure. The unit known as mitochondria produces 87% of all energy produced in the human body. Thus when they fail, you can see a drastic collapse of the person in his bearing.

Many types of mitochondrial ailments are gene related. The parents pass this ailment on to their children. The circumstantial factors like pollution or having an attack of infection too can play a major role. Collapse takes place beginning from the vital organs – heart, lung and liver. The signs seen would be as follows:
On the milder side these would be seen:
·         Swallowing difficulty
·         Blindness and deafness
·         Constipation and diarrhoea

When the disease progresses too much these signs would be seen:

·         Collapse of muscle tone
·         Repeated attacks of infection
·         Violent seizures
·         Fevers
·         Intolerance to temperature changes
·         Feeding problems

When any infection shows atypical signs, it is the first red flag for mito disease. On the other hand there may be multiple organ failure after an period of illness. Mitochondrial disease life expectancy has never been good, so be prepared for all eventualities. Adults who experience this ailment often live for many years without any trouble, well past all predictions. However, they will face more burdens since this disease will obstruct them from doing normal work. In addition, they need to do regular house work for which their health may not be conducive.

Variations of this disorder
The different varieties of this disorder depend on when and where the infection strikes. Myoclonus epilepsy and KSS are often seen. Signs of ailment would include breathlessness, nausea, along with headaches.
1.        KSS: Kearns—Sayre Syndrome will manifest as problems with the eye mainly in the form of drooping eyelids. Infections of the retina might take place along with high levels of fluid might also be present. In some cases, deafness and dementia could occur.

2.       Leigh’s Disease: When you get infection during your childhood, there is a chance for Leigh’s disease to occur. Lesions are formed on the brain stem after the disease progresses. Basic functionality like walking and sucking, or head control will be lost. The person will become irritable, and have incidents of vomiting and seizures.

3.       Carnitine Deficiency: When the consciousness of the person is affected leading to coma the treatment required involves use of L-Carnitine.

Treatment for disorder
To date, we have nothing that can cure or treat this disorder. However, eating well will keep the energy levels up. Plenty of food from morning to bedtime will keep the person going. Include plenty of vitamin rich food in the diet. Take measures to eliminate pollutants. Av0oid smoke filled areas. Stop alcohol consumption as this is poisonous. Take only those food items that the doctor recommended

Prognosis for this ailment

There is no time limit set for those with this ailment. However, the adults have better chances of surviving for more years than children. Research is ongoing in this line to try and find the cure. The environmental conditions will affect the person a lot and so one has to try to keep the living quarters and surrounding clean and healthy.

Need for Nutritious food

Every person needs minimum of 2000 Calories of energy intake by way of food. Where does it all go? The body uses the energy to keep the body mechanism ticking. It takes care of things like breathing, blood circulation, digestion and growth of new cells. 

Exercise is of two types. In this review, we will examine the passive exercise regime. This consists of simple exercises that anyone can and should do to keep fit. Simple stretches could be supplemented by light walks or jogging. This might seem too much for the couch potato who only needs to sit around and gawk at the TV all day long.

Impacting metabolic activity
The metabolism slows down so much that it stops doing normal work. This leads to a variety of diseases such as apnea that causes further deterioration of the health. Is is possible for that person to get stroke or diabetes because of the improper function of the metabolism.

Exercise helps restore good metabolic activity
Exercise augments regular metabolic function. It increases the rate at which things happen within the body. It thus improves the level of health. Body systems remain healthy and metabolism functions better. Exercise is essential for normal body functioning. 


Smiling puts the cake back where it belongs -- on the table.

Stress is an deterrent to good health. Building up stress comes natural to us. We populate those areas where interaction is unceasing and there is no let up from worries. Even the television telecasts programs that have problems projected right through the day.

As a consequence, the normal man does not think it correct if he does not face some kind of problem. Smile is a stress buster. It removes the unbalanced forces by soothing the nervous system and restoring the balance

Disappearing Beaches and Rising Ocean Waters

India has a long coastline. All of South India and parts of North India has seashores. People love their beaches but where are the beaches going?
Many of its seashores are fast disappearing. Erosion and rising water levels are swallowing up low lying land areas. When you walk on the beaches you see marking sometimes inside the water that says—“The waterline was here!”

There is nothing we can do – or is there? Actually, the beaches have been around for thousands of years. What has not been around is the atmospheric pollution. The rising amounts of greenhouse gases make
it impossible for us to live a healthy life.

The greenhouse gases also make the Earth a hothouse. The temperature rises and the ice shelves begin to melt. So much so, the sea levels begin to rise. And the beaches disappear.

So, do you feel the heat?

Protected Areas: Government Effort In India To Conserve Its Forest

Forests need conservation, which is a large responsibility. Various Government agencies carry out this work. Here we see some of these institutions and learn more about the forests of India.

Forests of India

In India, there are 16 major forest types and a further 221 minor subtypes1. Other than those on the islands of Andaman and Nicobar, the main chunk of Indian forests occur in Western Ghats in South India, greater Assam region in the North Eastern India and Orissa in Northern India. The nodal agency for coordinating, promoting, overseeing and planning of programmes and policies regarding forests and environment is Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF)3.

Protected areas in India

Protected areas in India include the following areas:
a)    Biosphere reserves
b)    Animal sanctuaries
c)    Conservation and community reserves
d)    Reserved and protected forests
e)    Private protected areas
f)     Village and panchayat forests
g)    Conservation areas
h)   National parks

Regarding National Parks
India has over 120 National Parks. They cover an area of 39,876 square kilometers. First among these, today called Jim Corbett National Park came into existence in 19352. Reserved and protected forests could fall between IV to VI categories depending on the level of protection that exists. In reserved forests, grazing, hunting or logging activities require permission, without which they cannot enter the land.

Important trees and research institutes
Main trees having commercial viability include Malabar Kino Pterocarpus marsupium, Terminalia crenulata, and Indian rosewood among others. Forest resources undertake surveys and assessments by the Forest Survey of India (FSI)3. They give real time information regarding forest fires, forest inventories, mapping and training and access Geo portal they can interact with regularly. Institute of Wood Science and Technology conducts training programmes in forestry research and wood sciences. They have extensive timber plants for preservation and seasoning, machinery for processing wood, modern laboratories, clonal propagation mist chamber, insect museum and Xylarium.  Students and interested entrepreneurs enroll in courses under categories such as Wood Protection, Important Timbers – Field Identification and Phytochemical Analysis involving Instrumental Techniques.

History of conservation
Scientific forest management bodies undertook massive afforestation programmes between 1926 and 1947 in Uttar Pradesh and Punjab. In 1952, the Forest Policy aimed at bringing one-third of the land area under forests. The main focus of afforestation lies in these main objectives:
a)    Preserving biodiversity
b)    Conserving forest resources
c)    Preventing soil erosion
d)    Increasing economic viability of forests
e)    Identifying areas where afforestation has maximum impact
Forests help by fixing the excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. This decreases the greenhouse effect vastly. They bind the soil especially along the coasts of seas and rivers. This length of coastline is 7517 km5. Length of all major rivers sum up to 12,763 km4.

India is the land of the tiger. It has many species of birds and animals that are unique to the area. So also with trees and the plants that now lie within the focus of the Governmental agencies that seek to implement the policies through most economic means.
