Preparing for Titanfall: Important News This Week in Technology

Titanfall_box_artThis last week has been filled with tons of different updates to the tech world. Most of them have been about robotics and the potential of cybernetics, but a lot of them are still light hearted. During this week, there will be at least 2 major game releases and a few news stories that you might have missed. If you don’t keep that close of a watch on tech news, then you can check out these most stories from all around the Internet.

Titanfall Crashes Literally

Titanfall is one of the most anticipated games of 2014 and it was finally released this week on North American shores. For Microsoft, this game meant a lot more than just a new franchise. Titanfall was supposed to be the game that boosted Xbox One sales, but as it stands, there are problems. First off, the game seems to crash more on the Xbox. At first, there were widespread issues with connectivity; almost no one could connect to the game servers. Another intermittent problem was the crash while customizing gear from the main menu. Within 6 hours Respawn Entertainment has addressed these issues with a patch. Of course, there are still bug reports popping up every once in a while, so you should watch out.

Dark Souls II Ramps Up the Pain

As if the S&M experience Dark Souls I wasn’t enough, the developer upped and created a sequel to the nearly impossible game. The game has received countless positive scores across the board and the hype doesn’t look like it’s dying down. The combat is tighter and refined, so battles feel more in your control. The trademark painful difficulty is still there, but while it is unreasonable, it does try to teach you lessons.

Tales from the Borderlands

Telltale games has grown quite the reputation over their last few releases. The Wolf Among Us was critically acclaimed and its second episode received no less praise. Not to mention their break out hit The Walking Dead. This take on the Borderlands universe is a little strange and is a departure from Telltale’s usual stuff. In it, you get backstory to the huge universe that is Borderlands and it might actually turn out well. And if you’re looking to keep entertained this weekend, why not jump on the leg for Daniel Tosh tour tickets?

Tips When Traveling to a Concert in a Far Venue

There are a lot of musicians out there who deserve to be followed every time they have a concert. Even if you have seen them perform before, you still get excited seeing them perform every time. This is true especially for rock bands that are as good as Imagine Dragons. Lucky for you, they are set for a concert tour this 2014. Thus, if you are a huge fan and you intend to follow the concert tour, you might have to follow them even if you live several miles away from the venue. If you are driving all the way to reach the concert, here are some tips that you need to remember:

  • Don’t forget to pack all the essentials ahead of time. This includes your personal belongings, gadgets, concert tickets, food, repair kit, cash, and many others. If you are driving for more than 5 hours, you might also need to plan in advance where you will do a stopover to get something to eat or perhaps refuel.
  • Determine key places on the way to the venue just you need to get something. This includes a department store, ATM machine, repair shop, gas station, police station, and calling stations. You might have to stop to these places when needed.
  • Drive to the venue several hours ahead of time. It is better to be way advanced than the original schedule rather than be late. Take note that popular musicians can really stir heavy traffic. Therefore, you need to have a margin of time considering all factors.
  • Upon arrival to the venue, observe the instructions of security staff. Make sure that you know where to go for exit. You also have to park your car on a safe place. If you notice someone doing something illegal or planning something dangerous, you have to report them immediately.

Once you have done these preparations, you are all set for the concert. You can check out imagine dragons 2015 tour for some more ideas.

Blake Shelton Has His Own App

blake-shelton-cc-mia-0912spAlmost all of famous artists have their own app, so why not Blake Shelton? He’s that gorgeous judge in The Voice with the ridiculous height and ridiculously great voice. I remember singing and swaying with his first ever hit single “Austin” which pretty much put him into the spotlight of country music.

Since then he got so many awards. In 2001 he was nominated as the Top New Male Vocalist, but in 2013 he finally bagged the Male Vocalist of the Year. He was so awesome, his album “Based On A True Story” was the Album of the Year in the 2013 American Country Awards.

His team in The Voice won three consecutive times already. He got a lot of accomplishments, including the song he co-wrote with his wife, Miranda Lambert, titled Over You. This was the 2012 CMA Awards Song of the Year. It spoke of Blake’s tragic teenage experience as his brother, Richie, died on a car accident.

All of his awesomeness are captured by his own app, perhaps. The Blake Shelton All Access mobile app lives up to its name. It gives you access to latest happenings, like Shelton’s snide comment to Britney Spears’ performance skills at the ACM Awards just yesterday, April 6. It wasn’t pretty.

You can also see countless photos of Blake with Miranda during every event they go to. You also don’t have to hop on YouTube to watch his music videos; it’s all in his app. You can watch HillBilly Gone any time you want to. It also gives you access to all of his songs and upcoming concerts. Track his whereabouts and schedule of tours to see if he’ll be near your area any time soon. This was how I knew all about Blake Shelton tickets 2015.

You can also check his official Facebook and Twitter account in this app. He regularly updates his profile for song production, music events, collaborations, ticket promos, family life, every day goings on, and more.

The app is compatible with iOS and Android, so you can get it whatever mobile device you have. It’s also free, so all you have to do is install it and overdose yourself with Blake Shelton.

Anatomy and Physiology of the Uterus

girl-by-lake_0All of us came from it, but not a lot knows what the uterus really is and how it functions. Here we take a look at what this organ actually does.

OVERVIEW OF THE UTERUS AND ITS MAIN FUNCTION

The uterus is a female muscular and hollow organ which houses the fertilized egg (zygote), nourishes it and allows it to develop until it forms into a fully grown fetus ready for delivery. A woman’s uterus is located in the pelvic cavity just in between the bowel and the urinary bladder. It is one of the major reproductive organs of the females. It varies from person to person as to appearance and endometrial linings. The uterus communicates with its uterine tubes on its upper part, one on each side. The bottom part of the uterus opens to the vagina.

Once eggs (ova) are released from the ovaries, they pass through the uterine tube ending their way to the uterine cavity. If an egg gets fertilized by a sperm, it forms into a zygote which would then be imbedded to the uterine wall itself and remains there until it is ripe for delivery. The uterus acts as the source of nourishment for the zygote. It undergoes various changes and muscular development as it conforms to the changes the zygote goes through as it develops into a fetus. However, if the egg is not fertilized, the inner walls of the uterus shed off which results to menstruation in women.

Human uterus measure about 7.5 cm in length, 5 cm in breadth and 2.5 cm in thickness. It weighs anywhere between 30 to 40 grams varying on each person. Midway between the uterine apex and base is a narrow portion called the isthmus (outside). Inside, its corresponding portion is called the internal orifice – a portion that narrows towards the opening of the uterus. Just above the isthmus is the body, and below it is the cervix. We call the part of the uterine body that passes through the points of entrance of the uterine tube as the fundus.

PARTS OF THE UTERUS

Body

The body actually narrows from the fundus to the isthmus. It is composed of the following:

  • Anterior Surface – this is the portion that lies in apposition with the bladder. It is a flattened surface that is covered with peritoneum.
  • Posterior Surface – this is the portion the converse transversely continuing down to the vagina. Just like the anterior surface, it is also covered with peritoneum.
  • Fundus – is that part that curves in all directions and is completely covered with peritoneum (both is vesical and intestinal surfaces). The sigmoid colon and rectum rest on its coils.

Cervix

The lower narrow portion of the uterus is called the cervix. It is coned shape with shortened apex that is positioned downward and then backward. The structure of the cervix is wider in its middle portion compared to its upper and lower portions. The cervix opens into the anterior part of the vagina:

  • Supravaginal portion – the supravaginal cervix is covered with peritoneum and this extends to the rectum forming what is known as the rectouterine excavation.
  • Vaginal portion – this extends into the anterior part of the vagina just between its fornices. On its lower portion is an opening called as the external orifice of the uterus – it is where the cervix connects with the vagina.

Interior of the Uterus

Unlike how big the organ actually is, the size of its interior is actually small (6.25 cm – measured from the fundus to the external orifice) and is divided into two parts:

  • Body Cavity – it is triangular in shape with its base formed by the interior part of the fundus and its apex by the interior opening of the uterus through which the cavity of the body connects with the cervical canal.
  • Cervical Canal – as mentioned, the cervix comes with wider middle portion compared to its other parts. Above it through the internal orifice is the lower portion of the body cavity while below it through the external orifice is the opening to the vagina.

Ligaments

There are eight ligaments composing the uterus:

  • 1 Anterior Ligament – from the front of the uterus, the anterior ligament extends to the bladder at the point in between its cervix and its body.
  • 1 Posterior Ligament – this extends from the back of the posterior fornix of the vagina to the front of the rectum.
  • Two Lateral Ligaments – these two ligaments pass from the uterine sides towards the lateral walls of the pelvis.
  • Two Uterosacral Ligaments
  • Two Round Ligaments – these are situated between the lateral ligament layers just below the uterine tubes.

THE UTERUS AT DIFFERENT STAGE OF LIFE

The uterus is one of the organs of the body which keeps changing in form and size depending on what period of life you are in.

  • Fetal Stage. As a baby, the uterus is inside the abdominal cavity and it projects to the superior opening of the pelvis. During this stage, the cervix is still larger than the body of the uterus.
  • Pubertal Stage. As you move on into puberty, the uterus enlarges to about 17 grams. Now it descends into the pelvis just below its position during the fetal stage. When your urinary bladder is empty, the uterus is directed forward. But when your bladder is distended, the fundus of the uterus will be directed backwards.
  • Menstrual Stage. The entire organ is enlarged during menstruation. It becomes more vascular and its surfaces rounder. The inner lining become softer and thicker as it sheds off completely until it stops. Once menstruation stops, a new layer of mucous membrane undergoes the proliferation phase to replace those that were shed off.
  • Pregnant Stage. When you are pregnant, the uterus enlarges to accommodate the growth of the fetus. It does this by creating new muscle fibers. It is during this stage that the uterus is at its largest size.
  • Post-delivery Stage. The uterus then gradually goes back to its normal size but nothing similar to its virgin state. It now comes with a large cavity and muscular layers which are more defined.
  • Late Adult Stage. When you reach old age, every organ of your body atrophies including the uterus.

How Women Can Cope up after an Abortion

pexels-photo-59894A lot of people criticize women undergoing abortion. The state has even introduced laws that would curb a woman’s right to choose. They failed to understand that abortion is not an easy choice. It is a decision that they do only after a serious consideration. Having aborted the baby though does not necessarily mean the woes are over. In fact, it has just started. Women suffer from massive guilt once the baby has been aborted. There are ways though for them to cope up after this difficult decision.

Spend time alone

It is highly recommended for women who have gone through an abortion to spend some time away from the society. The world will most likely judge women who have made this choice. Spending time away would give them time to think of what they should do moving forward. They would also have enough time to reflect on their decisions and what needs to be done as they move on with their lives.

The best way to forget what has happened is to live life normally again. It does not hurt to get a job and continue with life the way it is supposed to. It allows women to forget what they have done and just make them focus on how to make their lives better. Should they decide to have a family later on, they can now be more prepared. Hence, abortion does not become an option anymore.

Talk about what has happened in the family openly

The problem with women who have gone through an abortion is that they are not just judged by the society but by their family. This is the most difficult problem to face. However, this must not remain undiscussed. The family must openly talk about what has happened and make sure it won’t happen again. The family must also talk about forgiveness and contrition. Pretending like this never happened will not solve the problem at all.

Learn new skills

Perhaps, the best way to forget what has happened is by being busy with something else. For instance, these women can pick up musical instruments Adelaide at https://www.globalmusicrevolution.com.au/ and learn how to use them. They are quite challenging and they need focus. Therefore, it helps a lot to forget what they have gone through in life. Aside from learning musical instruments, there are other skills that can be learned such as handicrafts or technical skills.

Yes, abortion is not an easy decision to make and facing the challenges after abortion is even more difficult. These women need the right kind of help from the society. Judging them is the last thing that one should do. Most of all, they have to remember that they have the right to decide for their body and abortion is always an option. Judgment from other people must not be considered in making any decision in life. These people won’t be there anyway as they decide to move forward with their lives. They will judge regardless.

Change your attitude 

You might be used to your life with only you and your partner. You drink beer any time you want and stay really late. You also eat anything you want. Now that you have a baby, you need to change. You must choose what to eat and even what music you listen to. You have to create an environment which is conducive for the baby and will also make him feel relaxed and loved.

Financial Challenges Faced by Aspiring Singers

There are a lot of challenges that will confront you when you aspire to be a singer. All musicians can relate to this. Before they have gone on to become huge people in the industry. Most of them started out small and eventually became popular. The Florida Georgia Line duo for instance started as individual singers who have barely made ends meet. In just 2 years, they managed to make a name in the business. Though some have become lucky, not everyone has the same fate. In fact, there were those who are still struggling until now. If you are an aspiring singer and you really want to push through with your dream, here are some challenges that you have to prepare for financially:

  • If you are thinking of joining singing competitions, take note that the financial rewards are only for those who make it until the end. In fact, in some shows, it is a winner-take-all system. Imagine the odds of being the lucky one to make it as the winner. Along the way, you have to spend a lot. This includes your plane tickets to the audition venue, accommodation expenses, basic necessities and many others. Take note that while waiting for the results, you cannot have any other job as you might be called back to move on.
  • There are also those who are musicians at night, but have other jobs during the day. They just want to sing and push through with their passion. Though this is a wise move, imagine how stressful this could be. Night gigs could end very late. How many hours do you have left for singing? Gigs in bars are not even that high paying.
  • Some artists who really want to establish a name produce their own album. This is a very big risk. Producing an album costs a lot. The possibility of gaining income is very low. If you wish to take this route, then expect for the worst.

In short, you have to be careful before taking the road to stardom. For now, you might want to check out florida georgia line tour schedule and be inspired by their music.
