Laney 5s ,Bred 13s Cavs 4s Joker 3s Joker 3s Cavs 4s Bred 13s Cavs 4s Fear 4s Grape 5s A preliminary study on the use of stem cells obtained from a patient's own adipose tissue in the treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS) has shown promising results. The three case studies, described in BioMed Central's open access Journal of Translational Medicine support further clinical evaluation of stromal vascular fraction (SVF) cells in MS and other autoimmune conditions. Thomas Ichim, from Medistem Inc., and Dr. Boris Minev, from the Division of Neurosurgery, University of California San Diego, worked with a team of researchers to demonstrate the possible effectiveness of SVF cells in MS treatment. Minev said, "All three patients in our study showed dramatic improvement in their condition after the course of SVF therapy. While obviously no conclusions in terms of therapeutic efficacy can be drawn from these reports, this first clinical use of fat stem cells for treatment of MS supports further investigations into this very simple and easily implementable treatment methodology". MS is an autoimmune condition, in which the body's own defences attack nerve cells, resulting in loss of their fatty myelin sheath. The first symptoms usually occur in young adults, most commonly in women. It is believed that SVF cells, and other stem cells, may be able to treat the condition by limiting the immune reaction and promoting the growth of new myelin. According to Minev, "None of the presently available MS treatments selectively inhibit the immune attack against the nervous system, nor do they stimulate regeneration of previously damaged tissue. We've shown that SVF cells may fill this therapeutic gap". Minev and his colleagues provided the SVF treatment to three patients with MS. The first had suffered frequent painful seizures for the previous three years; after treatment he reported that the seizures had stopped completely and that he had seen significant improvements in his cognition and a reduction of spasticity in his arms and legs. The second patient reported improvements in his sense of balance and coordination, as well as an improved energy level and mood. The final patient had been diagnosed with MS in 1993. After SVF treatment in 2008, his gait, balance and coordination improved dramatically over a period of several weeks. If you are writing for the web, please link to the article.

One of the ways for you to easily accessorize without relying on expensive stones and metals is through the use of plastic string bracelets. Plastic string bracelets instantly stand out and are very inexpensive to make. These are also great do it yourself projects for young girls and perfect as giveaways for parties. Here are the steps to making your own plastic string bracelets. Measure. Take a tape measure and use it to determine the length of the bracelet that you will use for your wrist. If you are making a plastic string bracelet for another person, it is best for you to measure their wrists first. Girls and women have different wrist sizes, and making a plastic string bracelet that is too small will be very uncomfortable. Too big, however, and the bracelet will easily fall off the wrist. Add a few inches of excess string which you will use to close off the bracelet. Add a knot. Before you insert the beads into the bracelet, add a knot on the end of the string. The knot should be bigger than the holes in the beads so that it will be able to hold the beads in place. As an alternative to the basic plastic string bracelets, you can also add braids or weave patterns using three or more plastic strings. If you are using this, make sure that you knot the ends as well. Add the beads. Take the beads and then lay them out on the table. Before you insert them into the string, it is best for you to create the pattern first. If you have made your design before inserting the beads into the string, you can be sure that you will not have to remove all the beads just to get a wrong bead out at the back end. Insert the beads carefully, and make sure that you do not fill the string with too much beads which can make the bracelet very stiff and uncomfortable to wear. As much as possible, the bracelet should follow the shape of the wrist without any problems. Tie off. Once the beads are in place, you need to tie the end of the bracelet with a knot. This knot should have a permanent loop that you can fit over the first knot that you have made at the other end of the bracelet. You can also use certain hooks and latches that are specifically designed for string bracelets. These have small loops that will allow you to easily connect the ends of the strings. Once the ends are connected, these locks have latches that will allow you to fasten the bracelet. As an alternative to the basic plastic string bracelet, you can braid several plastic strings to make the bracelet. Insert a few beads in between the braids to accentuate the bracelet. Use plastic strings in different colors to spice up your bracelet.
New Cheap Laney 5s,Fear 4s CALGARY Bo Levi Mitchell used his legs to get things started and then relied on his arm to lead the Calgary Stampeders to a bounce back victory. Mitchell ran for an eight yard touchdown in the first quarter and then threw for three more TDs in the second as the Stamps cruised to a convincing 38 17 win over the expansion Ottawa Redblacks in Saturday's lone CFL game.

"Bo played well," said Calgary coach and general manager John Hufnagel. "I'm sure there's some throws that he wished he had back, but he played 60 minutes of good football and put some points on the board." Jeff Fuller, Marquay McDaniel and Jabari Arthur all caught TD passes for the Stamps (5 1), who moved into a tie with the Edmonton Eskimos atop the CFL West Division standings. "It was good to get going especially on offence," said McDaniel, who finished with nine catches for 117 yards. "We haven't been consistent the last few weeks. That was our main focus. As a receiving corps, we feel like it's on us to get this offence going." Rene Paredes chipped in with a three field goals, while Rob Maver kicked a single. Former Calgary quarterback Henry Burris threw a touchdown pass to Wallace Miles, while Chevron Walker had a rushing TD for the Redblacks (1 5). Ottawa kicker Brett Maher also had a field goal in the fourth quarter when the score was out of reach. "I'm choosing to not consider ourselves like an expansion team," said Ottawa coach Rick Campbell. "I want to win. I think we have some pieces of the puzzle in place here to compete and win some games. We're going to do everything we can to play good guys and put them in the best position we can to have success." Burris, who went 20 for 29 for 281 yards, also threw a pair of interceptions in a losing cause. "I'm just ready to start winning period," Burris said. "This would have been a big win especially on the road. Calgary gave us some opportunities. Winning teams take advantage of opportunities. We just found other ways to shoot ourselves in the foot and make it tough on ourselves." The Stamps started their second drive of the game with great field position at the Ottawa 41 yard line thanks to a 52 yard punt return by Jock Sanders. Six plays later, Paredes lined up to kick a 15 yard field goal, but Calgary executed a perfect trick play as Mitchell instead lined up under centre and took a quick snap before running for an eight yard touchdown. "It's the kind of coaching staff we have," Mitchell said. "They're a go get it team. They definitely wanted to say, 'Hey we're on our first drive, let's go get some momentum.' The guys made some great blocks, got the hole open for me and we got in." Early in the second quarter, the Stamps extended their lead to 14 0 when Mitchell tossed a 17 yard TD strike to Fuller to cap off a quick four play, 44 yard drive. The early onslaught continued as defensive back Jamar Wall picked off an errant pass by Burris at midfield to end Ottawa's best first half drive to that point. "It's always nice to have an interception," Wall said. "That was my first one this year. I'm pretty excited. Hopefully there's more to come." Nine plays and 60 yards later, McDaniel caught a 22 yard touchdown pass from Mitchell to give Calgary a commanding 21 0 lead. The Redblacks earned a measure of redemption when Jasper Simmons intercepted a pass by Mitchell and ran it back 29 yards deep into Calgary territory. On the next play, Calgary linebacker Keon Raymond was penalized for pass interference on Ottawa receiver Carlton Mitchell as well as objectionable conduct to give Ottawa the ball on the one yard line. Walker promptly plunged across the goal line to get the Redblacks on the scoreboard. The Stamps answered right back as Anthony Parker returned the kickoff 44 yards before Mitchell engineered a five play, 51 yard drive that culminated with a 17 yard TD pass to Arthur. The offensive woes for the Redblacks continued early in the third quarter as Burris was picked off by Calgary defensive back Joshua Bell, who ran it back 43 yards to the Ottawa 12 yard line. This time, the Stamps were unable to find the end zone and had to settle for a 12 yard field goal by Paredes. Late in the third quarter, Burris capped off an eight play, 75 yard drive by tossing a 32 yard touchdown pass to Miles before Maver booted a 53 yard punt single to put Calgary up 32 14. After Maher kicked a 32 yard field goal for Ottawa early in the fourth quarter, Paredes responded by booting field goals from 40 and 30 yards out respectively to round out the scoring. Notes: Calgary's Martell Mallett left the game late in the second quarter with a leg muscle injury and didn't return. The Stamps are already without the services of fellow running backs Jon Cornish and Matt Walker, who are both out with concussions. Since the start of the 2008 campaign, Calgary has compiled a record of 26 6 1 the week after a loss. The Stamps have never lost more than two games in a row with John Hufnagel serving as coach and general manager. Calgary defensive lineman Charleston Hughes extended his streak of consecutive games with a sack to six. The announced attendance at McMahon Stadium was 28,391 although it appeared as though considerably fewer fans were in the stands. Laney 5s For any avid hockey player, using the right hockey stick can mean delivering that winning shot. Together with a great pair of skates, having the perfect hockey stick is essential if you want to be on target all the time. A good stick will feel like it's an extension of your arm when handling the puck. Shaft. The shafts of hockey sticks can be made of the following materials: Blade. Generally, wood is a favored material for the blade. It is attached to a composite stick using glue. There are blades that are covered with Kevlar. Choosing your hockey stick.

It will give you a chance to practice before getting a more expensive one. Select the right blade for your game. The blades are categorized based on their curve. There is the Heel Open and the Mid Round, which comes in small, big and open. Green players should choose a blade with a lesser curve. Blades with smaller curves allow you to control your shots better. Choose a hockey stick, which is more flexible if you are a young player. Older and stronger players need less flex from their sticks. Depending on the material, the shafts have different levels of "give." Select the correct size for your height. Stand straight, make sure you have shoes on and check that the end of the stick comes up to your nose. If you are a defensive player, you can choose a longer stick. This will give you a father reach. Offensive players opt for shorter sticks so they can be more in control of the hockey puck. Select a larger stick, which is heavier than a regular one if your position is that of the goalie. The goalie stick's blade is wider and longer. Determine the correct stick lie. The angle between the shaft and the stick's blade is called the lie. You can see this number (between 4 and 8) on the front of the shaft. If you are a low skater who carries the puck in front of you, choose a lie with a lower number. This has a wider angle. Players who skate upright with the puck near their skates should choose a lie of 7 or 8. Test the stick before buying it. Whatever material of stick you choose, try it out first. Swing it a few times, testing the flex out. Buy two sticks so you have a replacement stick. Sometimes, in the heat of the game, a hockey stick can break. Remember that wood sticks that are damaged or break have to be totally replaced. Sticks made of other materials have blades that can be replaced. Visit the NHL buyer's guide NHL Shop for more information on choosing the right hockey stick. Playing with the correct hockey stick is very important in enhancing your performance as a hockey player. You have to consider the material of the stick, its' length, flex, the curve of the blade and the lie. But also remember that even if you have the most expensive stick suited to your body and method of playing, without practice, drive and perseverance you cannot become the great player than you can be.
