Breathe Easy At The Lung Institute

The Lung Institute is committed to regenerative medicine with the use of stem cells. The Institute offers stem cells as an effective treatment method for lung diseases. Before stem cell treatment was available, patients who suffered from chronic obstructed pulmonary disease, interstitial lung disease or pulmonary fibrous had few treatment options, and they all came with life impairing side effects. Drs. Jack Coleman and Sreedevi Marakatham use autologous stem cells from the patient’s body to ease the symptoms of respiratory issues and address the progression of disease.

There are two treatments performed at the Lung Institute, and both are considered safe and effective. Stem cells are delivered either by venous or bone marrow treatments. Both options are minimally invasive, so treatment is on an outpatient basis and usually takes three consecutive visits that last approximately four hours each . Every patient is screened,and treatment is recommended based on their current condition and overall medical history.

According to this lifestylesafter50.com article, the process of harvesting stem cells involves taking a small amount of blood or bone marrow from the patient, mechanically separating the stem cells from the other cells in the sample, and returning the concentrated stem cells to the patient. When the patient’s stems cells are re-introduced into the body, the return to the lungs which promotes healing and lowers inflammation

There is a no-risk free consultation for patients wishing to investigate the benefits of stem cell therapy. Typically, the consultation occurs in the office, but it is possible to conduct a phone consult in the event that travel is not possible. The Lung Institute also offers frequent online webinars for patients who want to consider all the information before scheduling a consultation. If it is determined that stem cell treatment is a helpful option, an in office appointment will be scheduled along with follow-up treatment. Follow-up treatment ensures that patient progress with breathing and physical activities is tracked and kept in line with medical protocols.

The Lung Institute is locations in Tampa, Scottsdale, Dallas, Nashville, and Pittsburgh. Read more about stem cell therapy on hawaiinewsnow.com.

Williamson County Gets Solutions from Transit Experts on Dealing with Traffic

A majority of the transit discussions held at the Austin area mostly focus on it. However, a recent Williamson County Growth Summit discussed about the challenges in transportation based on the requirements of the suburban communities in the region. The panel involved in the discussion included Mike Heiligenstein, executive director Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority, Joseph Kopser, founder RideScout LLC, Leandre Johns, Uber Technologies Texas external affairs director and Jared Ficklin.

New Technologies

 

 

Mike Heiligenstein noted that the new technologies like ridesharing apps and driverless vehicles will transform the transport infrastructure but Austin area will still need to invest in this sector further. Mike held the opinion that the roads in Austin area have to be developed to add to the number and make them smarter. He added that this would be the best option to satisfy the demands of the fast increasing population in the area especially in the suburbs like Williamson County.

 

 

Steps to be taken by Policymakers

 

 

Ficklin stressed on the importance of ensuring land-use and building codes remain flexible. He was responding to a question asked by Alan McGraw, the Round Rock mayor and panel moderator on how the policymakers ought to prepare to curb future transportation needs. Ficklin addressed the issue of autonomous vehicles requiring roads and parking garages. He stated that the future garages will measure five feet tall, just an inch taller than the vehicle and have multiple levels. That does not fit into any present building codes and hence the need to ensure their flexibility.

George Soros and His Involvement in Politics

George Soros Supported Hillary Clinton for President

From the beginning, George Soros had supported Hillary Clinton for President of the United States. Hillary Clinton and George Soros have had a close relationship for more than 20 years. Last December, George Soros donated six million dollars to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. A few months before December 2015, George Soros had also donated two million dollars previously. The big contribution lead to the result of a company to raise 25 million more dollars for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. When Hillary Clinton was running for office back in 2008, George Soros supported Barack Obama, a decision that he deeply regrets.

George Soros hasn’t been supportive of Donald Trump from the beginning along with Ted Cruz. The billionaire man said back in January of this year that Donald Trump and Ted Cruz were “doing the work of ISIS” therefore stating that he felt Donald Trump wouldn’t be a good fit for President.

Previous Election Involvement

George Soros has supported Presidential candidates in previous elections. Back in 2004, the billionaire investor spent over twenty million dollars trying to prevent George W. Bush from getting elected into office in which George Soros was unsuccessful. The investor gains billions of dollars through investing in the stock market and near election time, he spends more time investing so that he can donate money to presidential campaigns.

Stock Market

Back in September of this year, George Soros donated hundreds of millions of dollars to businesses in hopes of the businesses investing in the stock market.

Hopes of Defeating Sheriff Joe Arpaio

George Soros has been heavily involved in politics ever since the election process began and he continues to do so. Back in November, just a few days before the elections, the billionaire donated two million dollars in hopes of defeating Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio in Arizona. George Soros has spent millions of dollars this year trying to defeat certain candidates in the elections. George Soros is one of the biggest Democratic donors in the United States.

The Maricopa County Sheriff was charged a few months ago with contempt of court, a charge that federal prosecutors pursued against him. The charge stems from an incident in which federal prosecutors claim that Joe Arpaio is discriminating against illegal immigrants. Along with George Soros, many other Democratic donors have donated money to prevent the sheriff from getting re-elected into office.

Response to Donald Trump’s Presidential Victory

George Soros is not satisfied with the Presidential election results. After the billionaire donated millions of dollars to Hillary Clinton’s Presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton didn’t win the election. Even though he has given millions to campaigns, he is committed to fighting Donald Trump’s presidency.
