Asbestos Kills American Workers

Mesothelioma is a rare yet deadly form of cancer, the only known cause of which is exposure to asbestos. Because of that fact, the truth is that mesothelioma is entirely preventable, and our hope is that educating the public about mesothelioma and asbestos exposure will help bring an end to this fatal disease.
Did you know that asbestos is the largest cause of occupational cancer in the United States, and that we still import tons of this lethal material? What’s more, it doesn’t take much asbestos exposure to inhale or ingest enough asbestos and start the process towards developing mesothelioma, asbestosis, or another asbestos-related disease like lung cancer. In fact, some mesothelioma patients are the wives of men who worked with asbestos, who brought the tiny, deadly fibers home on their clothing, skin, and hair. Just this limited amount of asbestos exposure was enough to lead to a mesothelioma diagnosis decades later.
Decades? That’s right: it is not usually until many decades (in some cases half a century) after asbestos exposure that most mesothelioma diagnoses occur, and by that time the disease is usually at a very advanced stage. This is why the survival rate for mesothelioma patients is so low: most patients die only about one year after being diagnosed with mesothelioma cancer.
While asbestos is not commonly used in construction today, many of our older buildings (including schools) were built with asbestos in their insulation, flooring, or roofing. In many cases, this asbestos is safely encapsulated. However, in older buildings it is not uncommon for asbestos components to become exposed. If you live or work in an older building and you suspect asbestos may be present, don’t try to remove the asbestos yourself. Always trust this job to an asbestos remediation specialist who has the protection and training necessary to safely remove the asbestos.
Mesothelioma is a truly devastating disease, and our intent is to educate the public about the disease and its causes so that we will see mesothelioma diagnoses decline in the future. To do your part, seek out knowledge about mesothelioma and how to limit asbestos exposure for yourself and your family.

Android VS. iOS Security

Security and privacy have always been of major importance on the Internet, personal computers and mobile devices. As the number of mobile devices increased, the security threat went up a fold too. However, recent development in software and mobile operating systems have made these devices less vulnerable to malware attacks than personal computers and laptops. The two major mobile OS leaders in the world today are, Apple and Google, with their iOS and Android mobile platforms. Both are good for their own reasons and even though they have flaws, new updates keep coming to get everything fixed and make them more secure and user friendly.
As far as security is concerned, we believe iOS is much more secure than Android. You can find out how with the help of the Infographic below. The graph is based on the differences and similarities in security between iOS and Android.

Will Apple Be Able To Save The Education System

Apple clearly wants to reform the education system around the world, starting with the United States of America. The textbook was on the list of things that Steve Jobs wanted to reinvent. The company has already started to work on that, by releasing iBooks 2.0, iBooks Author and interactive textbooks. The fruit company wants to get rid of the old paperback textbooks and replace them with digital ones, making it easier and fun for the students.
Hence, the question arises. Can Apple save education? Well, here’s a nice Infographic from Online Education, that talks about the education system in the US and how Apple can and is actually saving the system.
