Month: September 2014

I started thinking about this as a practical matter more than anything. I have gotten far enough in Med school that I can start thinking about specializing and it seems obvious to me that you can do stuff that is a lot more riskier than other things. Surgery is where a lot of the hot shots want to go, but I am thinking it is a messy business. Aside those guys never see any solution other than to cut you open. I am thinking about the opposite approach. At a clinic I visited, they did fillers for nose jobs. That is what you call non invasive rhinoplasty. I was thinking that the idea behind it was pretty solid, and more to the point it fits in with that thing Hippocrates is supposed to have said, First do no harm.

Obviously if you have a cancer, then cutting it out may well be the only real choice. Then you still need to kill anything you miss with chemo or radiation of some sort. In the future I believe we shall probably determine alternatives to the last part. I would guess that they will be able to find just the right type of radiation that will target exactly what needs to be targeted and do no harm to the rest of the body. It is obvious that elective surgical procedures should be replaced by something less hazardous to the patient where it is possible. Botox injections are not something that you have to have, people have them done because they think it will make them look younger. If they look younger then they will feel as though they are younger and this will increase their happiness. In theory that would be good for their health, but it is better if they actually are healthier.

Getting a New Roof Installed

Posted by September 13, 2014

The roof on my house is pretty old, and it is definitely time that I get new one put on the house. I do not want to wait any longer for this to happen, because I am probably a couple hours past the time when I should have done this a couple of years ago. I think that the roof is 27 years old, and that it was guaranteed to last 25 years, when I had it installed. But either way, it needs to be replaced, so I am looking into roof installation in Brooklyn NY.

I think that I am going to try to get this done as soon as I can, because I actually have the money to do it right now, and I am not great with money. I am actually pretty bad with money, so I think it would be a bad idea for me to try and wait until a later point in time to get this done. Plus, it needs to be done now anyway, because I have put it off for too long. I am worried about problems happening with my roof, if I wait any longer.

In particular, I worry about water damage, and how much extra money it would cost me, if roof began to leak. That would definitely be a bad thing, and it is not something that I want to happen to me. I actually had a neighbor who had to get much of the underlying structure of the roof replaced, because they had water seeping into it for years, and it really messed up a lot of things. I hope that I never let something like that happen to my own house. I know it cost them a lot more to get it replaced as a result of that.
