Alternative Healing Careers

Lagos is a port city located in South West corner of Nigeria. Plaque and tartar cause gingivitis, an inflammation of the gums, cavities, holes and soft spots that damage the surface and, more particularly, the structure of the teeth, peritonitis, breakdown of ligaments and bone supporting the teeth which leads to tooth loss, bad breath, abscesses and many health problems including pre-term labor and heart disease. First of all let’s get a little gross anatomy lecture on the liver first, so the liver is a triangular organ that extends across the entire abdominal cavity just inferior to the diaphragm. Most of the liver’s mass is located on the right side of the body where it descends inferiorly toward the right liver is made of very soft, pinkish-brown tissues encapsulated by a connective tissue capsule. This capsule is further covered and reinforced by the peritoneum of the abdominal cavity, which protects the liver and holds it in place within the abdomen. The liver consists of 4 distinct lobes – the left, right, caudate, and quadrate lobes. The left and right lobes are the largest lobes and are separated by the falciform ligament. The RL (Right Lobe) is about 5 to 6 times larger than the tapered left lobe. The small caudate lobe extends from the posterior side of the right lobe and wraps around the inferior vena cava. Dentists have a number of medical tools at their disposal for use during dental procedures and operations. From drills, specialized mirrors, and brushes to lasers, ex-rays and scanners, these professionals use a number of advanced technological resources to provide advanced treatment to patients of all ages. Some professionals in this field specialize in pediatric dentistry, while others specialize in oral surgery, orthodontics, and other specialties. Other specialty areas include periodontists, who concentrate on gum disease and jaw bone treatments, endodontists, who provide root canals, prosthodontists, who provide implants, crowns, and bridges, oral and maxillofacial surgeons who provide surgery to treat diseases of the mouth, and dental public health professionals, who work to prevent oral diseases through organized community education. Indeed, the study of media and their effects now seems intrinsically historical mainly because of McLuhan (and his mentor Innis), and the furthering of that approach in Media Ecology. Even before the Web, back in the 1970s, most graduate programs that studied communications and media were pointed towards the future. Then, two years ago, Palmer Luckey, a kid born during the waning days of VR’s late-20th-century golden era, put the pieces together using improved technology. He raised some money and soon developed the Oculus Rift, his own version of a clunky headset. The graphics were still basic but the experience was, surprisingly, lifelike. For the first time ever, one could casually wander through a comically realistic rendering of Jerry Seinfeld’s apartment. Or hack a zombie to death. It didn’t really matter what you did inside the goggles, really, just the act of immersion was awing. Someone at Facebook got the memo, and they purchased Oculus wholesale for $2 billion, signaling a promising, if unclear, future for virtual reality.
