Do you take your decisions after careful weighing of all pros and cons? Well, everyone does that. It’s the most logical thing to do. Mothers especially are too cautious when it comes to taking decisions that concern their children’s health or wellbeing. If you are a mother or a parent of a child, you will better understand what I am talking about.

Consider this scenario. You are presented with the opportunity of taking a crucial decision. This particular decision could be the only alternative to save your child, if he/ she suffers from certain health disorders in the future. Would you say yes or refuse to go with this option? I guess this question is irrelevant because of the logical conclusion that you would jump at such a chance, wouldn’t you? Trust me; any parent in your shoes would have done just that.

Understanding Umbilical Cord Blood Banking

Stem cell banking or cord blood banking is something that promises exactly that. All it takes is merely a simple decision on your part to preserve your newborn baby’s umbilical cord blood. This can go a long way in preserving good health for your child, close family members or even to utter strangers in future.

Range of Possibilities

Medical research has confirmed that the stem cells that are found within the umbilical cord blood possess the ability to replicate themselves and form any cell of any organ of the body. This particular unique characteristic trait of these stem cells beholds innumerable treatment possibilities in the current medical scenario.

The best part about this wonderful breakthrough in medical science is that it is absolutely undemanding and does not need any surgery or complex medical procedure to source the umbilical cord stem cells. All that you need to do is to arrive at a decision to bank or preserve your baby’s umbilical cord. Considering that the umbilical cord is something that you would be throwing out after birth of your baby anyway, your decision to preserve it for future treatment possibilities is certainly a tremendous decision on your part.

Benefits of Umbilical Cord Blood Banking

The stem cells that are sourced from umbilical cord can be utilized in treating a variety of disorders like cancers, Thalassemia, Diabetes, Stroke, Cerebral palsy, brain injury etc. These stem cells sourced from the umbilical cord can be used for the child, his/ her sibling, a close family member or to someone totally unrelated.

Full blown research and clinical trials are going on in this comparatively new method of treatment. So a decision to preserve your baby’s umbilical cord blood can signify that in future when treatment of newer diseases using cord stem cells is made possible, your child stands to have an advantage over others who do not have their umbilical cord blood preserved.

As a parent you may take many important decisions on behalf of your children, but the decision to store the umbilical cord cells definitely tops the list. What else could be more comforting to parents other than securing the health and longevity of their children?

This is how Appraisal Works

Big Boss: This year your performance was good, excellent and outstanding. So, your rating is "average".

Kumar: What? How come 'average'?

Big Boss: Because...err...uhh...you lack domain knowledge.

Kumar: But last year you said I am a domain expert and you put me in this project as a domain consultant.

Big Boss: Oh is it? Well, in that case, I think your domain knowledge has eroded this year.

Kumar: What???

Big Boss: Yes, I didn't see you sharing knowledge on Purchasing continue reading...

Your Fortune For Today
Wednesday, October 01st, 2014

Your financial affairs could look especially rosy now. Some benefits are definitely coming your way, although everything isn’t quite as promising as it seems. You could well find yourself with less than you were hoping for. Think of whatever gain may be coming as something extra, but don’t count on it. That way, whatever comes will be a welcome bonus rather than an irritating disappointment.

You are particularly inspired by and sensitive to crisis situations. What that means is that you can’t stand to see other people suffer. Sometimes even you suffer because you don’t allow yourself to do the things you like best and the things that help you feel fulfilled as a person. Why don’t you think about going easier on yourself, just for today? Try it – you might like it!

You may feel particularly in the mood to play pranks today as the inner clown in you takes hold. However, make sure that your practical jokes are in good taste or you may end up in someone’s bad books.

You may feel like you’re walking on burning coals today. Someone has tossed you the ball and you need to figure out what to do with it. Use your fancy footwork to keep your feet from searing as you exercise your mind to figure out your next move. Try not to be too stubborn or you’ll get nowhere. The key is to stay flexible and go with the flow when unexpected events occur.

Work you have been doing is beginning to show results. There is some risk at this point that you will slow down or become distracted. Problems or delays you may be experiencing should not be taken seriously. Frustration will only slow you down. Simply continue to do your best.

Emotional matters could hit the fan today at a social event or group meeting of some kind. Those around you are apt to be feeling especially stressed and volatile, so be prepared for anything. Try to stay out of passionate confrontations, and don’t try to put oil on troubled waters. At times like this, such attempts only cause unwanted attention to focus on you. Stay centered.

Friends, neighbours, and relatives could be feeling especially stressed out and explosive today. This isn’t a good day to initiate intense communications with them. Keep your talk light and inconsequential. This is a great day to stay home and read, especially since your mind is particularly receptive to unusual ideas. The Internet, videos, and TV documentaries could be most informative.

You may feel a bit restless because you know something is brewing but can’t seem to get hold of it. This energy is like a river rushing beneath your feet while you stand on a bridge. The water is tempting, yet you can’t summon up the courage to jump in. Don’t feel like you have to be a part of everything. Perhaps your destiny lies on the other side of the bridge.

Find a wide-open field to frolic in today! Pick (or buy) some wildflowers and put them in a vase on your kitchen table. Small things can bring a great deal of sunshine and hope to a stagnant situation. Try your best to clear your mind of unnecessary clutter and open it to new possibilities. Getting out and taking a walk in nature will help you gain a fresh, new perspective.
