School Based Management in Ethiopia

Are leaders born, made or just poached? The question that is posed by this article is not a new one. However, it’s undoubtedly as relevant today as it was when it was first asked. After considering various facts that substantiate all sides of this argument, chief executive of AstroTech Training, Liza van Wyk, concludes that leadership skills can either be innate or developed - but there are common characteristics that generally define leaders. AstroTech provides effective management courses for people who are looking to improving their leadership skills.

Patient Advisory for Stem Cell Therapy and Medical Tourism

August 2013 Patient Advisory for Stem Cell Therapy and Medical Tourism As stakeholders in cellular therapy, the undersigned professional organizations believe it is necessary to share the following important message with patients and families contemplating cell therapy or experimental stem cell procedures. In this document, best practices are outlined to assist patients and family members in their healthcare decisions. Controlled innovation in the context of patient safety is paramount as potential therapeutic products or procedures are researched, tested, advanced and proven. Our organizations have received questions and concerns from patients and this document presents an opportunity to address them. Introduction Advancement of clinical therapies is best done in the setting of rigorous and formal clinical trials and in a structured regulatory framework. This helps assure that safety considerations, professional peer review, and the management of patient rights and obligations are considered and addressed. Some procedures would be considered standard of care, because scientific studies have shown that they are safe and effective. Not all procedures offered to patients in all regions of the world are tested in this manner and not all geographical regions have regulations for cellular therapies or patient protection. Additionally, it is possible that some practitioners may offer stem cell procedures without following the existing regulations. Patients may be seeking treatment for incurable, potentially untreatable diseases and may be susceptible to false promises or may not have access to all of the information needed to make this important decision. As patients and families contemplate voluntarily ...

Cardiac Stem Cell Therapy and the Promise of Heart Regeneration

Perspective Cardiac Stem Cell Therapy and the Promise of Heart Regeneration Jessica C. Garbern1 and Richard T. Lee2,* 1Department of Medicine, Boston Children’s Hospital, Boston, MA 02115, USA Stem Cell Institute, the Brigham Regenerative Medicine Center and the Cardiovascular Division, Department of Medicine, Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA 02115, USA *Correspondence: 2Harvard Stem cell therapy for cardiac disease is an exciting but highly controversial research area. Strategies such as cell transplantation and reprogramming have demonstrated both intriguing and sobering results. Yet as clinical trials proceed, our incomplete understanding of stem cell behavior is made evident by numerous unresolved matters, such as the mechanisms of cardiomyocyte turnover or the optimal therapeutic strategies to achieve clinical efficacy. In this Perspective, we consider how cardiac stem cell biology has led us into clinical trials, and we suggest that achieving true cardiac regeneration in patients may ultimately require resolution of critical controversies in experimental cardiac regeneration. Introduction The race is on: throughout the world, basic and clinical investigators want to be the first to identify new approaches to regenerate cardiac tissue and to prove the effects of these therapies in patients with heart disease. Despite substantial progress in treating many types of heart disease, the worldwide heart failure burden will remain enormous through this century. The potential of stem cells and the scope of the heart failure problem have fueled a stampede to be the first to achieve human heart regeneration. Cell transplantation approaches are attractive given their...

Patient Handbook on Stem Cell Therapies - A Closer Look at Stem ...

W e have all heard about the extraordinary promise that stem cell research holds for the treatment of a wide range of diseases and conditions. However, there is a lot of work still needed to take this research and turn it into safe and effective treatments. The International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) is very concerned that stem cell therapies are being sold around the world before they have been proven safe and effective. Stem cell therapies are nearly all new and experimental. In these early stages, they may not work, and there may be downsides. Make sure you understand what to look out for before considering a stem cell therapy. Remember, most medical discoveries are based on years of research performed at universities and companies. There is a long process that shows first in laboratory studies and then in clinical research that something is safe and will work. Like a new drug, stem cell therapies must be assessed and meet certain standards before receiving approval from national regulatory bodies to be used to treat people. What does this really mean for you as a patient, doctor, friend or family member? Below we hope to answer some of your questions on stem cells and stem cell therapies and give you the resources you and your doctor need to make the best decisions possible for treatment. The ISSCR is a non-profit professional stem cell research organization with a commitment to ensure the promise of stem cell research is delivered to patients in a safe, effective and fair manner.

When selecting a high-end portable workstation for multimedia creation and viewing, performance counts. Large files and complex applications can slow systems with limited amounts of RAM or basic graphic cards. Those who invest in a system with a powerful 4th generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor, 16 GB of RAM, and two heavy-duty graphics cards do so because their compute-intensive workloads require such hardware. In our labs, we tested three current high-end portable systems, a 4th generation Intel Core processor-based Dell Precision M3800 with QHD+ touchscreen display, a similarly configured 2013 Apple MacBook Pro with Retina display, and a 2012 Apple MacBook Pro with Retina display, to see how well they performed. While the systems were comparably configured, the Dell Precision M3800 has a touch screen and runs Windows 8.1, allowing users to select, zoom, and edit their work right on the screen. It also has three times the storage capacity of the 2012 MacBook Pro and 33 percent more than the 2013 MacBook Pro, which is very useful for storing large multimedia files. The Dell Precision M3800 outperformed both MacBook Pro systems on several tests. Along with its $2,249 purchase price, which is 13.5 percent lower than that of the 2013 MacBook Pro, these advantages make the Dell Precision M3800 an excellent choice for those who work with multimedia content and need an extremely powerful system they can use at the office and on the go.
