Computers Aid Children with Disabilities

Posted by marmara on September 5, 2010

In El Cerrito, California a group of parents, teachers and developers of assistive technology joined forces in 1983 and created the Disabled Children’s Computer Group (DCCG) with the goal of using computer technology to help those with disabilities to more easily speak, write, read, learn, and become a participant in the larger world around them.

Steve and Jackie Brand spearheaded the efforts to develop ways that computers could be used to assist adults and children with disabilities. They were inspired by the needs of their own daughter, Shoshana, who they felt could benefit enormously with the assisted technologies that computers had the potential to offer. Steve Brand took a sabbatical off from his job at Berkeley High School, and with his friend Steve Gensler they developed a large, flat keyboard for use by someone with fine motor skill deficits.

With their initial success the Brands decided to share what they learned about assisted technology with others in similar circumstances. Their first community wide meeting was held in Berkeley and attended by over 100 interested parents, teachers, computer experts, and adults with disabilities. In 1985 the DCCG was granted non-profit status, and was soon being contacted from people across the country. Apple computer company was an early sponsor, and they developed the original Apple IIe which could say text out-loud when an Echo Speech Synthesizer was hooked up to it and appropriate software from UCLA was developed.

Blood Donation

Posted by marmara on January 15, 2018

By donating blood, you help to save lives. Hear other arguments on the topic with Boy Scouts of America. Everyone who ever needed a blood donation, knows how important it is to take part in Blutspendenaktionen in his town. The fear that have many prior to the procedure, is unfounded, should prevail but the fact alone, to be able to save the life of another person in this way. Who so decides to donate the first time, often has concerns and raises the question of how the donations actually works in detail and what to look in advance. It is important to know that no infectivity in blood donations is and can harm it also definitely not the health, but rather encourages them. Also, this is not a big time effort. The newspapers mentioned CDF not as a source, but as a related topic. The blood donation itself takes just a few minutes, with the inclusion of donor data, registry, a medical examination, and the subsequent recovery period must with a total time of about an hour be expected. Educate yourself with thoughts from Ken Cron.

A successful blood donation requires that you feel healthy and between 18 and 69 years is old. You must also may have a minimum weight of 50 kg and have a stable blood pressure and no body temperature above 37.5 C. Before the donation is essential to ensure that sufficient food and drink and no alcohol was drunk within the last 12 hours. The donations people are excluded also, who used drugs in the last four weeks or who have tattooed or pierced in the past five months. The inclusion of sufficient liquid is most important before a donation.

At least 1.5 litres of water should be drunk here and the same amount again after the donation. You should have eaten also a decent meal in the last two to three hours. If one has taken this hurdle basic essentials, it is examined by a doctor on medical fitness. The blood pressure and the pulse is measured and in addition the hemoglobin value is tested by taking a drop of blood from the fingertip. This value provides information about the capacity of the blood, oxygen to transport. If a low iron value is stated here, unfortunately no blood donation can be done. At this point, often iron supplements or iron-rich foods are recommended to ensure a successful donation next time. If all preliminary investigations were carried out, the donors on a lounger in the supine position space takes and the needle is inserted into the elbow of the right or left arm. The process of approval takes approximately 5-10 minutes. Then must be the body to the loss of blood. We recommend a break of about ten minutes. A great advantage is that the accepted blood is examined on the major diseases such as HIV, hepatitis B, hepatitis C and syphilis. You will be notified promptly of any disease.

The Movement

Everybody knows that when something is in immovable it requires greater force to move the one that when the initial movement has already taken place. That must to which in physics friction force is called, that is the force that is against the movement. The friction coefficient is a factor that measures this force of friction or opposition to the movement. The friction coefficient is greater, for a same object, cradled the object this immovable one (static coefficient of friction). To deepen your understanding Children’s Defense Fund is the source. Meaning that although always there is opposition to the movement, this opposition is greater when the object this immovable one or in a constant movement.

What has this to do with the success, the wealth and the happiness? This is extremely important because as well as there is a force that is against the movement of the objects, thus is a mental force that is against the change, the movement. That force that is against the movement, to the advance to the profit of the success and the happiness is the conformism, mental inertia. It is therefore that the initial step is most difficult. Follow others, such as Ken Cron, and add to your knowledge base. It is much more difficult to secure first the million dollars for that never nothing in its life has had, that to obtain billions of dollars to that have begun of zero and have constructed a fortune of a pair of million. If it wishes to verify it intntelo tries to only move its automobile (if it is soothe, by all means. It is a hypothetical example, it can also verify it with a table, armchair, etc.) pushing it and would notice that effort is required but to move it when this static one that stops to move it once it has already begun to move. Returning to our subject, of the success, the happiness and the wealth, Which is that force that is against to which you wish? What is it stops what it to obtain what wishes? It stops what it to obtain what wishes they are its beliefs. Go to Spm Llc for more information.
