Wonderful night spent: try out once

Right now I am standing in front of my balcony! 1 o’clock at the night. Feeling the peace of night life..Almost everyday I spend in the same way. So many lights are there in an around… but almost pin drop silence… Probably everybody is sleeping in their bedroom!

But Why I could not able to sleep? So many questions is arising in my mind..

Am I OK?
Am I restless? missing somebody!
Or I don’t want to sleep!
Or I love sleepless night!

After so much rational or irrational thinking still I never come to the conclusion.Probably I and the watchman still awake.
No, I am wrong! So many people like me awake at night. Might be the reason is different. Might be a person who awakes to earn and run his family, or a person awakes watching movie to relieve stress, or some body enjoying writing to fulfill his cacoethes..
So, the purpose is not the same…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XcZX89Z0nVA

Its enthralling when there is no cacophony .. Mind starts thinking differently. Some times music provides a great support to stay awake…to make your inner self happy..

The Football Legend Called Alessandro Del Pierro

Pele considers him one of the 100 living football greats! Maradona prefers his feeling for the game over Frenchman Zidane. Millions who glimpsed him across television screens, captivated by his effortless game, would vouch for that. Italian legend Alessandro del Pierro presently shines with Delhi Dynamos FC in the ongoing Indian Super League. If scoring goals are what football is really all about, the passionate footballer nicknamed The Real Phenomenon is the 10 all-time highest scorer in the Champions League. Playing an attractive, attacking game was ever del Pierro’s football philosophy. He might as well say that after playing more than two decades of the game. He is now 40, ripe for a football genius.

It may be necessary to know the man to understand the footballer!  Sonia Amoruso is the lucky wife, together since 1990 and they have three children. He bore the Olympic Flame for the 2006 Winter Olympics and has a taste for music too. Alessandro del Pierro contributed his bit for charity for victims of AIDS and abandoned children. Known for his sense of humor, he appears in advertising broadcasts for Adidas and Pepsi, among others. Truly a multi-faceted diamond if ever there was one.

Highlights Of A Stupendous Career
A creative guy hard at work would quite sum up the mighty wonder as he shines in international circuits. The highest achievement does seem to be the stupendous goals at every stage of his career; he was instrumental in winning tournaments wherever he played. Play to Win would be his mighty weapon.

Alessandro received the coveted Italian Footballer of the Year Award in 1998 and 2008. His 345 goals in Italian football put him only in second place behind with 390 goals.

On the national level, his career reads like a fairy tale indeed. He played for Italy in three FIFA World Cup and four UEFA European Football Championships. Italy won the 2006 FIFA World Cup and reached the final of UEFA Euro 2000. At present, del Pierro along with Roberto Baggio is the fourth all-time highest goal scorer with 27 goals in 91 matches. He scored 2 goals for Italy in 12 World Cup matches and 1 goal in 13 European Championship appearances.

It was playing for Juventus for 19 dramatic years from 1993 to 2012 that spanned 705 matches and 289 goals.  Early in his stunning career, del Pierro was part of the trident formation of 4-3-3 under Lippi as the coach. As a striker on the outside, he had pace and technique and constantly strove for the goal. The Injury came in 1998, resulting in muscle strengthening exercise. Later came the Juventus captaincy for del Pierro when Lippi returned. All along the way, the image of the great goal scorer remained to enthrall and excite eager fans.

Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard close to completion of LA Galaxy deal

Steven Gerrard, the Liverpool legend is just a couple of days away from signing a historic deal with MLS side LA Galaxy. The deal is worth an astonishing $6 million every year for a total of 18 months. The 34-year-old made his debut for Liverpool on 29th November in the year 1998. Since then he has made a total of 695 appearances for the club scoring 180 goals. Gerrard also has 114 caps for his national side scoring 21 goals. Recently retired from international football after the 2014 world cup, Gerrard is finally on his way to the MLA side.

Gerrard’s exit follows a disappointed season last year where they almost won the title, snatched from their hands at the last moment. This would have been their first EPL title since 1990, when the team was led to their 18th premier league title by Alan Hansen. Gerrard will begin his final campaign for Liverpool when they face AFC Wimbledon for a third round encounter at the FA cup. One of the biggest achievements of Gerrard’s football career was when he led his side to its 5th champion’s league victory in 2005 against AC Milan. It was a dramatic victory and one that will be cherished by Liverpool fans for decades to come.

Gerrard is following the footsteps of his fellow country man Frank Lampard who left Chelsea to join New York City FC, later to be loaned back to 2013 champions Manchester City. Steven Gerrard may be leaving Liverpool but his contributions for his club side as well for England will be in the memory of football fans forever.

The Dos And Don’ts Of Blood Donation Requirements

blood-donation

While the procedure of blood donation is simple enough, certain common sense blood donation requirements do exist to streamline the process of blood collection, testing and storage. Medical facilities can hardly exist without an efficient system of blood banks that rescue people from the jaws of death like after accidents when excessive bleeding may occur. Surgeries too inevitably cause a loss of blood that needs to be replenished. Let us know a little more about the wonder life giving fluid. A, B, AB and O represent the four major blood types. RBCs, WBCs, plasma and platelets get manufactured in the little factory called the bone marrow. WBCs fight infection, platelets assist blood clotting and plasma, mostly water, contains nutrients while RBCs carry oxygen. The four constituents are separated before transfusion.

It is obvious that the donor should be in good general health and feeling well at the time of blood donation. Countries differ in the blood donation requirements but most states in the USA require the donor to be at least 17 years old and weighing a minimum of 110 pounds. Tests may be carried out to ensure the good health of the donor though lies may be told to avoid deferral for the sake of payment for instance. Not all blood donations are paid for though, often done as an act of charity.  We realize though that since you can donate every 56 days, it could become a source of income for the poverty stricken or to support a substance abuse habit amongst the youth.

Low hemoglobin/hematocrit count could be a basis of deferring blood donations that should be above the minimum value prescribed that stands at 12.5 g/dL. Other conditions like low or high blood pressure similarly could be a cause of deferral. Symptoms of illness and even colds and flu may cause deferral. Travel in certain countries, medications and medical conditions could decide either temporary or permanent deferrals. Other general blood donation requirements would be to avoid smoking and drinking prior to the blood donation. You should be alcohol free 48 hours before and you could resume smoking three hours after the event.  Eat a sumptuous meal three hours before the donation.  You may be offered refreshments after the donation that you should accept and eat well later.

World Blood Donors Day being recognized globally on 14th June, consider it a profound privilege to donate blood that could potentially save three lives through whole blood, platelets and plasma that are separately transfused depending upon the recipient’s medical condition. We have dwelt only on the advantages of donation to the recipient as part of blood donation requirements.  Does the act of blood donation confer any advantages upon the donor? Yes, it does. By giving away a portion of your blood, the toxic chemicals present like mercury and pesticides would be thus reduced! Men have the additional advantage of reducing the risks of heart disease. Both the sexes generate new red blood cells through blood donation.

Nothing can replace the red substance in spite of all the wonders of creation. RBCs can be stored normally for 42 days only. Blood fights infection, heals wounds. Blood is the greatest carrier of oxygen to every body part and carbon dioxide for removal from lungs, liver and kidneys. To conclude, compatibility issues arise as part of blood donation requirements. The universal donor is O that can be transfused to anybody. O- can be received by O- alone. O- and O+ may be received by O+ while O- and A+ may be received by A- besides a few other compatibilities. Regarding blood plasma, the universal donor is AB that anybody can receive. A or AB is acceptable to A and B or AB are acceptable to B. Donor plasma must be O, A, B or AB to be received by O.

Save Lives Every Day Through Blood Transfusions

blood

While humanity is well aware of the universal existence of blood transfusions, make note of a few details that may augment life threatening situations. Did you know that blood can be broken down into its components during the transfusion and only the platelets or plasma could be transfused besides whole blood? Which diseases would require whole blood? Have you heard of apheresis? Did you know that you can donate blood for your own use like posting a letter to yourself?

Accidents when blood is lost or surgery that is an exercise in bloodletting would require such a replacement of the lost precious liquid, the elixir of life that is the single most precious commodity without which life cannot exist. The blood from the donor is transfused into the recipient’s body to help certain conditions. Can infections occur though blood? They can but the chances are so small that they hardly exist. Yet screening processes do take place like for HIV. The safest blood transfusions then would be to receive your own blood if you are anticipating an elective surgery for instance. But then preparations need to be done well in advance and not all are eligible.

Blood banks do a noble social service all right by collecting blood donations often voluntary and storing it for emergency use. The blood bank collects tests and stores the blood, ready for use. The problem is that blood does not have a long shelf life.  Blood transfusions are thus sometimes a hit and miss story with frantic searches for the matching blood type when the bad times actually occur. The O blood group is recognized as the universal donor that is safe to transfuse to anybody. A vast system does exist of blood banks across the spectrum of society with people encouraged to donate blood that is a simple, safe procedure. Registrations online indicate the contact details of potential donors and their blood groups to contact during emergencies.

While bloody nightmares are not really necessary with the extreme care provided by modern medical science, it would help to be familiar with the facts. If you happen to face such a situation, beware of fever and chills, itching or shortness of breath during the transfusion. The medical staff should be informed immediately. The two types of blood transfusions are with autologous blood and donor blood. Strange as it may sound, autologous blood means the receiving of your own blood. How does that happen? In this case, you would donate your blood well before the planned surgery. Since blood is lost during surgery, your own blood gets recycled into your body. Smart, isn’t it and the safest way to receive blood. Recycling your blood during surgery could take place too. Blood lost during surgery could be recycled back after surgery. Sometimes, blood is removed before surgery and replaced by IV fluids with the blood returned later.

Instead of transfusing the whole blood that is generally accepted to be the norm, only the platelets or plasma could be transfused too. Apheresis indicates the collection of your own platelets and plasma that are returned to the body later when you need them.  Red Blood Cells or hemoglobin is most commonly used during blood transfusions since they carry oxygen across the body spectrum and create energy. In anemia or after surgery and injury, a person would require RBC transfusion. Platelets aid clotting and certain illnesses result in the loss of the clotting factor. Hemophilia, though a rare disease, is one condition besides injury and internal bleeding that would require platelets alone. Plasma is indicated if you suffer from burns, liver failure or serious infection. What is plasma? The liquid part of the blood that contains a lot of stuff: vitamins, cholesterol, sugar, hormones, proteins, sodium and many more…

Which blood type do you possess?

A, B and O may be on everybody’s lips and medical documents but let us get a  wider perspective on the system of blood classification that concerns the life giving fluid. Each adult possesses 6 pints of it and medical science has developed the system of transfusions to save countless lives across the globe.  What are the factors that determine blood types? How is it decided? Is it inherited or otherwise? Like many other aspects of our lives and existence, the different blood types are a perpetual mystery though we talk about them all the time and particularly in those dreaded moments.

Different blood types are often commonly referred to as blood groups. The classification derives from the red blood cells on the surface of which is found inherited antigenic materials. Depending upon the blood type, these substances could occur in the form of proteins or carbohydrates, glycoproteins or glycolipids. Both parents contribute to the blood type. Internationally, as many as 33 blood groups are accepted. Every child has heard the most common ABO and the RhD antigen. The combination of a letter with the plus or minus sign indicates the presence or absence of the RhD status. That may come as a surprise because we had imagined that essentially blood is the same. That is true in the sense that the blood of a white, black or yellow individual would all contain RBCs, platelets and plasma with their different constituents. Yet some little aspects differ and the knowledge would help when it comes to blood transfusions that could save lives in emergencies.

The four major different blood types are indicated by the presence or absence of antigens and antibodies. Group A possesses the A antigen on the red cells and B antibody in plasma. Group B has B antigen on red cells and A antibody in the plasma. Group AB possesses both A and B antigens on red cells and neither antibody in plasma. Group O has neither antigen on red cells but both A and B antibodies are present on the plasma. Group O referred to as the universal donor can donate RBCs to any blood group. Group A donates RBCs to both A and AB. Similarly, Group B donates to B and AB. Group AB can donate to ABs and receives from any group! While it may all sound rather mysterious, medical facts cannot be denied. What would happen if mismatching blood is transfused? An immune response would occur to attack the mismatched blood as if they were aliens.

If we consider the universal prevalence of the eight different blood types , O+, A+ and B+ are the most commonly found across the different racial groups. For the distribution of O+, Caucasians have 37%, African American 47%, Hispanic 53% and Asians have 30%. The A+ distribution includes 33% of Caucasians, 24% of African American, 29% of Hispanics and 27% of Asians. The B+ type is found in 9% of Caucasians, 18% of African American, 9% of Hispanics and 25% of Asians. The other four chief groups comprising of O-, A-, B- and AB- have comparatively lesser distribution across all the major racial groups, mostly in single digits or in decimal fractions.

Yet all is not so simple either with the different blood types!  Some rare blood does exist like the Oh in Bombay, India which is found in one in 7600 people in Bombay, also called Mumbai. The blood group is absent in other parts of the country. A rare blood group is found in 1 in 1000 people. Would you expect a pregnant woman to carry a fetus with a different blood group? It happens and the mother forms antibodies that is sometimes lethal for the fetus. Though one would be expected to have the same blood group through life, the blood group sometimes changes because of disease. Finally, certain blood types are associated with particular disease.
