Scurvy afflicts mankind at land as well as at sea. Back in the year 1747, scurvy killed more seamen than guns and storms put together.
To fight this dread scourge, the sixty cannons mounted on the oaken decks of the Salisbury were useless. But by a flash of genius, one man in the ship’s crew Dr. James Lind was able to defeat it. The conquest of scurvy ranks as one of the major medical victories of all time. Dr. Lind is today recognized as one of the most important figures in a whole branch of science called Nutrition. Dr. Lind later gained fame as the father of naval medicine. From history, science can then say that scurvy was the disease that afflicted Job in the Bible after he lost all his flocks and grains, when Job said:
“By the great force of my disease, is my skin changed; it bindeth me about as the collar of my coat. my skin is black upon me and my bones are burned with heat.”
Lind, on board the Salisbury had separate reports hinting on the truth about the disease. Among was the one written by the famed French mariner Jacques Cartier about his exploration on the St. Lawrence River in 1535. Translated in to English in the collection of voyages by the great geographer Richard Hakluyt, Cartier related:
“The said unknown sickness began to spread itself amongst us after the strangest sort that was eyther heard of or siene, insomach as some did lose their strength and could not stand on their feete, then did their legges swel, their sinnowes shrink as black as any Cole. Others also had their skins spotted with spots of blood of a purple color; then did it ascend up to their ankles, knees, thighs, shoulders, arms and neck; their mouths became stinking, their gummes rotten that all the flesh did fall out.”
Within six weeks, only ten of a crew of one hundred and ten remained and their “remedy” was a sort of broth made from boiling the twigs and needles of the evergreen trees.
Lind, the little genius. After having seen the possible symptoms of scurvy aboard the Salisbury, Dr. Lind planned one of the most significant experiments in the whole history of medicine. Guided only by his own good judgment, Dr. Lind worked out a model controlled experiment. On the twentieth of May, 1747, he selected twelve patients with scurvy on board the Salisbury at sea. Their cases were as similar as he could have them. He laid them together but did not treat his dozen patients exactly the same.
The experiment. Lind experimented with six different diet supplements: to his first group of two men, he gave a quart of apple cider three times a day in addition to the regular diet all the sick men ate; the second group got two spoonfuls of vinegar thrice daily, and several drops of vinegar in their loblolly; another group got a medicine known as elixir vitriol, composed of diluted sulphuric acid and alcohol flavored with ginger and cinnamon; still another, a medicine made of garlic, mustard and some groundup herbs; and two other men, merely half a pint of salty sea water after meals. To the two lucky men in the sixth and final group, Dr. Lind gave oranges and lemon daily for six days, till his limited fruit supply ran out. In his own words, this is what happened:
“The consequence was, that the most sudden and visible good effects were perceived from the use of the oranges and lemons; one of those who had taken them being at the end of six days fit for duty. The spots were not at the same time quite off his body, nor his gums sound, but without any other medicine he became quite healthy before we came into Plymouth. The other was the best recovered of any in his condition, and being deemed pretty well, was appointed nurse to the rest of the sick.”
It is possible to use Dr. Lind’s own words because on reaching shore, he set down complete details of his experiment in a book he called A Treatise of the Scurvy. What Dr. Lind accomplished on board the Salisbury earned him and his ship a secured place in history. Lemon juice stopped scurvy because scurvy was and is a disease caused by vitamin C deficiency. Vitamins were discovered in 1912 by a Polish chemist working in London; found in many common foods in varying quantities, they are essential for life and growth. Not until 1934 would an American scientist at the University of Pittsburgh at long last isolate crystals of pure vitamin C from a beaker of lemon juice.
Increased production and consumption of vitamin Crich foods, such as citrus fruits and vegetables.
Provision of vegetables, fruits and fruit juice for all members of the community beginning with children in the sixth month of life.
Nutrition education, as well as teaching the reasons and need for eating fresh foods, should include instruction in means of minimizing vitamin C loss in cooking and food preparation.
Treatment. This disease of malnutrition is still prevalent around the world today. Because of the dangers of sudden death, it is not advisable to treat this deficiency disease with only a vitamin Crich diet. Rather, it is advisable to give 250 mg ascorbic acid by mouth four times a day, and to put the patient on a diet with plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables. Ascorbic acid by injection is only necessary if the patient is vomiting.

We all know it important to get links to our sites to increase our traffic as well as link popularity. Yet, the process is both daunting and frustrating of finding contacts, keeping track of things and skimming directory listings.
Be different and offer something of value for a link back to your site. It could be an ebook, a free webpage, creation of a banner, ad in your ezine for free or a consult. Stand out from the crowd by offering something unique and different. For sites that seem out of your reach you can think of a unique package that would work with the webmaster site. If the webmaster likes what you gave him or her then that offer might even be put on the site itself and you get more webmasters linking to you.
One way I done this for a site of mine was through offering a few webmasters with nice traffic and also popular ezines a free email consult giveaway to 3 subscribers. They were happy to both put the link on their website as well as advertise it in their ezine as a random draw. The subscribers who were chosen then sent me an email discussing a personal issue and I sent them suggestions incorporating meditation, yoga and ideas to help out.
This is something that could be done with your expertise whether it web design, internet marketing , cgi scripts, tutorial on using ebay etc etc.
Another trade I done is I ran a free ad in my quotations newsletter in exchange for a link. I did this both for the webmaster and for a subscriber he gave it to in his ezine as a gift. Again, I received both a link to my site as well as a link within the ezine itself sent out to 5000 subscribers.
Electro Computer Warehouse is a ReMarketer of Grade “A” Refurbished/Offlease computer systems. We strive to provide our customers with the best quality products at prices not found anywhere elseAn IBM study of 1,700 Chief Executive Officers finds increasing social media use IBM says a study it did of some 1,700 Chief Executive Officers worldwide found that many are indeed or should be grasping social media as a key enabler of collaboration and innovation.
According to the IBM CEO study, the companies that outperform their peers are 30 percent more likely to identify what IBM called “openness” as a key way to influence the growth of their organization. Opens in the IBM lexicon means embracing social media and better use of collaboration. The idea is to a certain extent to “tap into the collective intelligence of an organization to devise new ideas and solutions for increased profitability and growth,” IBM stated.
Some of the interesting items in the IBM CEO survey included:
To forge closer connections with customers, partners and a new generation of employees in the future, CEOs will shift their focus from using email and the phone as primary communication vehicles to using social networks as a new path for direct engagement. Today, only 16 percent of CEOs are using social business platforms to connect with customers, but that number is poised to spike to 57 percent within the next three to five years. While social media is the least utilized of all customer interaction methods today, it stands to become the No. 2 organizational engagement method within the next five years.
More than half of CEOs (53 percent) are planning to use technology to facilitate greater partnering and collaboration with outside organizations, while 52 percent are shifting their attention to promoting internal collaboration.
Greater openness is not without risks. Openness increases vulnerability. The Internet especially through social networks can provide a worldwide stage to any employee interaction, positive or negative. For organizations to operate effectively in this environment, employees must internalize and embody the organization’s values and mission. Championing collaborative innovation is not something CEOs are delegating to their HR leaders. According to the study findings, the business executives are interested in leading by example.
CEOs regard interpersonal skills of collaboration (75 percent), communication (67 percent), creativity (61 percent) and flexibility (61 percent) as key drivers of employee success to operate in a more complex, interconnected environment.
The trend toward greater collaboration extends beyond the corporation to external partnering relationships. Partnering is now at an alltime high. In 2008, slightly more than half of the CEOs IBM interviewed planned to partner extensively. Now, more than twothirds intend to do so, IBM said.
A majority (71 percent) of global CEOs regard technology as the No.1 factor to impact an organization’s future over the next three years considered to be a bigger change agent than shifting economic and market conditions.
CEOs recognize the need for more sophisticated business analytics to mine the data being tracked online, on mobile phones and social media sites. The traditional approach to understanding customers better has been to consolidate and analyze transactions and activities from across the entire organization. However, to remain relevant, CEOs must piece together a more holistic view of the customer based on how he engages the rest of the world, not just their organization. The ability to drive value from data is strongly correlated with performance. Outperforming organizations are twice as good as underperformers at accessing and drawing insights from data.
“Rather than repeating the familiar lament about depersonalizing human relationships, this view leans heavily in favor of deepening them, and using dynamic social networks to harness collective intelligence to unlock new models of collaboration,” said Bridget van Kralingen, senior vice president, IBM Global Business Services..

To the lay person, watch bands scarcely factor into the decision of whether or not to purchase a specific timepiece. The most important thing, in his or her estimation, is the look of the face. But this reasoning is akin to neglecting the interior of an automobile. After all, people really only see the outside, unless they’re riding with you. So why not skimp on the interior altogether?
The answer is because you have to ride inside that car, and therefore it must be comfortable to you. Same goes for luxury watches. The way they fit, their comfort on your wrist, their adjustability are all factors determined by the bands, not the dials, knobs, complications, and trimmings.

Look through any jeweler’s case and you’ll notice a staggering number and variety of watch bands. There are metal “link” bands that can have pieces added and deleted to fit your wrist. There are alligator, crocodile, and other leather straps that range from large grain to small grain, shiny finish to matte finish, rounded, straightedged, notched, and indented. If the options sound dizzying, just wait, there’s more.
Additionally, you have to choose the color of your watch bands, the designer, the width and length, as well as the strap type. Many luxury watches come only with adjustable deployments as opposed to buckles. In fact, there’s a good chance you won’t be able to find the exact band you want, which is when it behooves you to hire a custom watchband manufacturer.
