What happens at an X-PERT course? David and David find out. | Diabetes UK

We wanted to find out exactly what happens on a diabetes education course so we filmed David and David at an X-PERT course in Yorkshire. X-PERT education courses are for people with Type 2 diabetes. They give people the confidence and skills to improve their diabetes control. There’s loads of help about managing your blood glucose levels, whether it’s healthier eating, exercise, carb counting or medications. X-PERT courses are run by trained diabetes educators so they’re a great chance to ask the questions you’ve always wanted to ask. You’ll also get to talk to other people with Type 2, swapping tips and sharing your experiences.

Aluminium Machining And The Right Workshop

Aluminium Machining And The Right Workshop


Aluminium alloys are some of the easiest metals to machine. The various grades of aluminium lend themselves to different applications – 6000 series are ideal for commercial work whereas high-strength 7000 series alloys with improved machining characteristics are well-suited for critical aircraft components and even the iPhone 6 (despite ‘Bendgate’)!

But, not every workshop you come across will be able to get the most out of this versatile metal across a range of applications…

Venous Insufficiency, Don’t Ignore the Symptoms

Venous Insufficiency, Don’t Ignore the Symptoms

The veins in our legs carry blood back to our heart but if the valves don’t work properly some of the blood won’t go where it should and sits in the veins. This is when patients can develop venous insufficiency. “The most common symptom, patients feel that their legs are achy and heavy, usually at the end of the day. They attribute it to I’ve been working too hard, or I’ve been standing all day, but actually, the symptoms are due to venous insufficiency,” explained Dr. Ronnie Word, a vascular surgeon with Lee Health.

Venus insufficiency can cause leg pain, swelling, and varicose veins. “I think a lot of people do not pay much attention to varicose veins. They think it’s something cosmetic, but unfortunately, sometimes varicose veins can lead to bigger problems,” said Dr. Word.

If a patient develops varicose veins, their legs may start to throb, itch or cramp at night. Doctors say for 20 to 30 percent of patients, the symptoms will get worse with time. “Some people develop advanced venous insufficiency, where they end up with color skin changes in the lower leg, even ulcers, which are called venous ulcers,” said Dr. Word.

While the problem is typically caused by genetics, there are things patients can do to prevent venous insufficiency. “What helps is exercise, walking, being active, certainly if you’re very overweight that doesn’t help, so losing weight. You can wear compression stockings,” he said.

Doctors say treatments like laser therapy can also help alleviate the pain. “If they have varicose veins and venous insufficiency more often than not we can fix the problems in the office through a simple procedure,” Dr. Word explained.

Its important patients don’t ignore the problem and seek medical attention if they start to experience symptoms.

TEDxWestlake – Molly Dominguez – "Veterinary Medicine: Human, animal and environmental health"

TEDxWestlake – Molly Dominguez – "Veterinary Medicine: Human, animal and environmental health"

TEDxWestlake – July 12, 2012

Our first TEDxWestlake explored the accelerating change in the world around us. This change is largely driven by the power of the digital infrastructure built over the last few decades. William Gibson has remarked: “The future is already here — it’s just unevenly distributed.” While we can’t predict the future, we tried to uncover and mine some of these veins.

We were lucky to have speakers from a wide array of disciplines, from kinetic art to philosophy to hybrid social ventures, to come share their stories with our audience of business students and innovators, and help us wonder about what might lie ahead.

As a dual-degree Veterinary — Business student at the University of Pennsylvania, Molly Dominguez is challenging the future role of the veterinary profession. In the United States, a veterinarian is traditionally perceived as a doctor for dogs, cats and horses. Yet, during Molly’s six years as an officer on active duty in the U.S. Army Medical Service Corps, including a deployment in Iraq, she learned about the global leadership of veterinary medicine in promoting political, economic, and public health security. Drawing from these experiences, she captures the essence of why spreading the capabilities and expertise of the veterinary profession is critical for the United States’ foreign policy over the next decade. Molly is a graduate of the United States Military Academy and received her Master’s in International Relations from Oklahoma University. Her husband, Augie Dominguez, is currently deployed to Afghanistan with the 82nd Airborne Division.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.

The Yellow Rolls-Royce

The Yellow Rolls-Royce

Featuring a star-studded international cast, gorgeous location photography, designer wardrobes, and a catchy Golden Globe Award-winning theme song–not to mention the glamorous automobile itself–this melodramatic travelogue follows a classic car as it changes the lives of three sets of owners. In the first episode, a British diplomat (Rex Harrison) buys the car for his French wife (Jeanne Moreau), who is dallying with her husband’s colleague (Edmund Purdom) at a luxurious country estate. In the second episode, an Italian-American gangster (George C. Scott) tours his ancestral homeland with his gum-chewing blonde moll (Shirley MacLaine). When he returns to America to take care of business, his girl gets involved with a handsome Italian photographer (Alain Delon), aided by her chauffeur (Art Carney). And in the third episode, Omar Sharif teams with Ingrid Bergman in the story of a rich American widow who uses the Rolls to help a Yugoslavian freedom fighter.
