Advances in Medicine
Major advances in medicine in the 1940s include the development of the first drugs to treat TB, as well as the discovery of penicillin and other antibacterial drugs. Creative Bioscience is on the forefront of making great supplements to improve health. The introduction of the latter was a major breakthrough in preventive medicine and was significant in lowering the number of deaths during that year. Cancer drugs such as chemotherapy cocktails were also being used even then, and patients with heart disease benefited from the development of the pacemaker. Despite the various problems brought on by the war, the 40s was marked by numerous medical breakthroughs that helped lower the mortality rate and saved thousands of lives.
The 40s saw significant improvements in health and medicine, which resulted to a lower number of deaths and improved fighting chances of survival for those suffering from injuries or those stricken with disease. It was in the 40s when doctors first used penicillin. Improved sanitation and hygienic practices also resulted to better overall health in the 1940s for both the sick and the healthy.
The main causes of death in the 40s include influenza, lung disease, and infections. The flu was prevalent both in the 30s and 40s. Deaths were caused by a common strain of influenza that was not eradicated in the earlier years. Lung disease was also prevalent especially in chimney sweeps, miners and coal workers. Unsafe workplace practices and the lack of understanding of the dangers of continued inhalation of contributed to deaths from lung disease. Acquired infections were also prevalent especially malaria and polio and were probably carried by soldiers stationed in far-flung areas of the globe where these diseases were endemic. Another lesser-known cause for morbidity and mortality was poor dental health. The low importance placed on dental hygiene resulted to increase in dental infections, which worsened and led to death.

Are you planning to design your own building in the future? That is not possible if you work hard for it, you take a proper education about it, and you practice to specialize in that field. Creating your own building models requires knowledge and skills. People who normally design building models are called “architect.” Architects are people who studied and specialize in the field of designing and creating house models, road models, and building models. Now, if you want to have your own building designs in the future, I would suggest that you take an architect course. They design of the building models would depend on the needs and the type of business that the client wants or requires. After getting the ideas of the clients, the architect will them use his or her imagination and creativity to put all those ideas in one and be able to meet the expectations of their clientele.
If you want to be an architect, you need to have a creative mind, you need to learn how to think outside the box, and you need to have passion in what you are doing. All the beautiful buildings that you see in different parts of the world came from the mind of an architect. The buildings are designed according to the needs of the client. It will be easier if the clients will give you an idea about what they want for their building, rather than let you do all the work and you need to please him with the outcome of the idea of the building model that you came up with. But there is a risk because your clientele may or may not like the model that you will be presenting to him/her. If you want to please your client, make sure that you came up with an unusual building model. Most clients will only turn you down if they see that your designs and building model is very common. Most clients would want their building to be unique and something that stands out.
Creating a building model may take time because you need to do some research for ideas, you can also search different designs and building models for additional ideas. But your time is limited because you need to meet the deadline of your client. So, don’t waste any time. Make the most of your time to come up with unique idea and building model.

The condition of health today is way different compared to the condition of health in the 1940s. Because of the advancement of the technologies today, there were more effective medicines that have been produced and discovered. Treatments and cures have been developed and improved. The technologies has provided better treatments and to the patients compared to the year 1940s. Because of the lack of supply and accessibility of technologies, health experts during those years in 1940s have limited resources where they could find better treatment to treat the patients. Like for example with malaria, many people died with malaria because the treatment and cur for malaria has not been discovered yet. But because of non-stop study and research plus the help of technologies, health experts were able to find a cure for malaria.
Health in the 1940s is very critical and many people died because of limited access to treatments and medications. That’s why we are so blessed and lucky to have live in this generation because more and better treatments are available. So, do not take your health for granted, and always take good care of your health because our health is the most important of all. If we get sick, we won’t be able to do the things that we have to do. In 1940s, many people have suffered because of the limited medicines and treatments. Some of them are just depending on herbs for treatment which is not 100% reliable that you will heal. In some cases, herbs can even cause infections and could make the condition worse. The sad part is, if you have been affected with serious sickness, the medical team can’t do more about it because of the limited resources that they have and all you need to do to wait for your death.
Now, you see how hard their life in the year 1940s. Reading their life and their condition with regards to their health, I really feel sad and lucky at the same time. Sad because people died of simple and treatable illnesses, on the other hand, I feel lucky because I live in this modern time where almost everything is available. There are treatments to almost all the sickness and it’s easier to find sure and treatment because of the technology that we have. Up to these days, health experts, scientist, and other medical profession are still doing all the studies for illnesses that still don’t have cure.

Have you heard of the B-17 Flying Fortress? This is type of a four-engine heavy bomber aircraft was developed in 1930s for the United States Army Air Corps or USAAC. This aircraft is made by the Boeing where they are competing with Douglas and Martin for a contact to build 200 bombers. Boeing entry has actually outperformed these two competitors and they even met more what the Air Corps’ expectations. But did you know that Boeing lost the contract for a reason that the prototype crashed. However, even after the crashed incident, Air Corps was so impressed with Boeing design that they even ordered 13 more b-17s for further evaluation. This design was introduce in 1938, the B-17 Flying Fortress have evolved through numerous design advances.
In the daylight precision strategic bombing campaign of World War II against industrial and military targets, the B-17 Flying Fortress was primarily employed by the United States Army Air Corps or USAAC. In the preparation for the invasion of France, The United States Eights Air Force and the Fifteenth Air Force who are both based in Southern England and Italy, complemented the RAF Bomber Command’s nighttime area bombing in the Combined Bomber Offensive, through this they were able to help secure air superiority over the cities. Also in early World War II, the B-17 Flying Fortress also participated to a lesser extent in the War in the Pacific, where they have conducted raids against Japanese shipping and airfields. The USAAC from its pre-war introduction have touted the aircrafts as strategic weapon because of the fact that it was known to be potent, high-flying, long-range bomber that was able to defend itself, and return home despite of extensive battle damage.
Because of this great facts, B-17 Flying Fortress was quickly took on mythic proportions and widely circulated stories and photos of the aircraft surviving battle damage which resulted to increase of its iconic status. By that time, the B-17 Flying Fortress has established itself as an effective weapon system, dropping more bombs than any other U.S. aircraft in World War II. Out of the 1.5 million metric tons of bombs dropped on Germany and its occupied territories by U.S. aircraft, 640,000 tons were dropped from B-17 Flying Fortress. The latest updates about B-17 Flying Fortress, as of September 2011, 13 aircraft remain airworthy, aside from that, there dozens more in storage or on static display.

Do you love to fly planes? For you to fly planes, you don’t need to actually fly a real plane because that would cost you lots of money. And you may not have that money in your pocket to buy your own private plane, unless you’re a millionaire or billionaire. The other way to actually fly a plane is to buy an airplane toy and to have that real feeling is you can buy RC airplane toys. There are different types of RC airplane models that you can choose from in the market. I have some friends who have this kind of toy and I can see that they are really enjoying flying their plane. The great thing about RC airplane is that they are also run by real engine. You also need to have maintenance for them to fly smoothly.
They come in different sizes, styles, and even the engines. In fact, my great grandfather is addicted to this kind of toy. He is really spending so much of his time assembling and flying his RC airplanes. But this also cost lot of money because, this maybe a toy buy you are using real tools and engines here. It’s like building a mini airplane. If you want to see different airplane models, try to check it online and go to images and there you will see all the existing airplane models that are available in the market. Flying RC airplane is a really a good way to entertain yourself, have fun, and relieve your stress.
There are even group of people today who fly their RC airplane in an open field. Flying RC airplane is a good hobby and investment if you are looking for something to invest. But if you have an idea on how to build a plane just like my great grandfather (he designs and builds his own RC plane), you can actually build your own RC plane to make it more personal and unique. In building an RC airplane toy, you will need tools and these tools are called special tools because they are specifically design for RC airplane only. So, go ahead and check the market for your options and start building your own RC airplane.
This can be a great bonding time between you and your son. You can set a schedule on weekend where you can both fly your RC airplane and enjoy together.

More often than not, the first idea that comes into a person’s mind upon hearing the word “models” are individuals who do fashion modeling or those who pose for magazine covers. There are basically two ways to define the word “model”; a profession or a physical representation of a certain object. As a profession, a model is being employed in order to advertise or promote a certain product and it is often being done through physical representation. For sure you have already seen a lot of fashion modeling shows on television wherein different models are wearing different styles of clothing. That is to show to other people what the entire outfit would look like when worn by a person. It is also a way of promoting the work of a certain fashion designer.
Other representations of a certain object wherein models are being used are in television commercials. You can commonly see a person using a certain product such as a beverage or a certain food and saying everything nice about the product. That is one way for the product to be indorsed to the public. Commonly, manufacturers of a certain product that will be promoted to the public hire popular celebrities to be the models of their product in order to attract more possible clients or customers. Just like for example in weight loss products wherein companies and manufacturers hire famous actors, actresses, and athletes so that people who will see the advertisement would think that the models are actually using the product and that is why they became sexy.
For those who are onto real estate business, you are for sure familiar with model houses. For those who are not yet familiar with model houses, they represent what the real house looks like. They may come in miniatures or in real ones. Miniatures are usually replicas of the real house while the real ones are real houses that were built in order to show possible buyers how the house really looks like and for the possible buyers to also have the opportunity to roam around the different model houses for them to be able to check the house properly. Through these model houses, possible buyers will have different choices to choose from as well as they can properly decide on what type of house to purchase.
Aside from product promotion, models are also being used in certain hobbies. A good example is in model railroading. If you are onto such hobby, you are for sure familiar with the different model trains available in the market for hobbyists to purchase and collect. Model trains are basically replicas of real trains, only smaller in scale. This also goes the same for those who are onto the hobby of collecting model cars, guns, helicopters, airplanes, and many more.

World War 2 is a major historical event. It is still reminisced by those who have witnessed the war. It is not just an ordinary event because it marks the significant decline of the great powered countries. It gives rise to the 2 superpowers, the USSR (Soviet Union) and the US (United Stated of America). Up to now, these countries are still powerful. Their powers are even extended to faraway countries. The Second World War marks a new beginning to the many affected. The rise of the USSR and the US creates the bipolar world. Both worlds go with one another during the war but after, they started to become great rivals. This is where the Cold War started. Why is it Cold War? It’s because the two competing nations are not really into bloody fights. Each tries to overweight another by means of espionage, political rebellions and proxy wars. After the WW II, nations become divided. But, some want to exempt their nations and hence the term non-aligned movement was made.
War among nations is really horrifying. Here, even the innocent are greatly harmed. People usually are in panic yet being hopeful that it would come to an end. In war, the other group benefits while the other loses. The war is primarily due to many reasons. For me, nations involved really want to prove to their rivals that they are the greater, more powerful. Anyway, war is still a violent move be it for a great purpose.
When the World War 2 ended, allied countries came up with an international or global organization named United Nations (UN). This aims to develop cooperation, camaraderie and diplomacy in all aspects. UN want to eliminate the wars of aggression. In short, it doesn’t want the 3rd World War. The 2nd World War is enough and it is already a lesson to remember. Countries like United Kingdom, Germany, Soviet Union, Italy, Finland, Austria, and Japan were largely affected by the war. There are still tensions among countries. Economy goes down. Some are even having a hard time starting a normal life again. Millions of people lose their homes after the war. Economy in the Europe was down and much of the infrastructures were greatly damaged. Later on, the Marshall Plan by George Marshall comes to rescue.
Nobody dreams of experiencing a war. It is life damaging. So, if I were given the chance to lead, I would invite everybody for a talk in times of conflicts instead of starting a rebellion.

Basically, a model maker is a professional crafts person, who creates a representation of a concept or a design, often in 3 dimensions. The model therefore could be an exact duplicate of the future design, or sometimes could be a mock up of the general shape or concept.
It should also be understood that model makers normally make use of two basic processes during their work of creating models: additives and subtractive. Additive simply involves adding clay to create a form, sculpting or smoothing the final shape. On the other hand, subtractive process revolves around whittling a solid block of wood or also chiseling of stone into the form, desired by the model maker. Most of the milling and machining re both subtractive forms. However, in some cases, the makers of the model could make use of both the processes in order to come up with the best of the models.
Model makers are professionals, therefore model makers is not a task that could be carried out by anyone. The maker therefore ought to be skilled enough to enable easier usage of machines. These people have to be in great shape and not have much fat on them, using resources like weightlosspunch can be helpful in getting their bodies in shape. They are also flexible beings, who could easily fit in working in environments such as studios, shops, corporate world, engineering facilities and also research laboratories.

World War Two lasted six years, from 1939 until 1945. It involved the efforts of many countries around the world and took the lives of millions of people. Very few of those involved survive to this day as they would have been born no later than the late 1920s, though people who were very young who witnessed the devastation also survive. What is being done to preserve their memories and make people think about them?
Remembrance Day, November 11th, continues to be observed by schools and community groups across the globe. At 11:11 a.m. citizens take a minute to stay completely still. In that moment of silence they hear what veterans heard: a cessation of gunfire, of soldiers wailing as they lay dying and maimed.
Students continue to be taught what World War Two was all about in schools. They learn that the very name is ironic: that the First World War had once been called “The War to End all Wars.” Until this conflict (1914-1918), there had never been war on such a massive scale. No one thought there could be such a war again.
Many books are being written and read by modern consumers which touch on the topics of the war. They learn about the Nazis, Adolph Hitler in particular. Books portray not just the heroes but the ordinary people who were caught up in the crisis on both sides. Soldiers survived but watched as loved ones died. Movies continue to be made about the war as well, introducing a new, young generation to the topic and causing them to reflect on what that old event means in their modern lives. Many of these vets can benefit from using essential oils to help with things like ptsd as many suffer from.
Grandparents and parents were often taught to be thankful that they do not have to speak German, enjoy freedom of worship, and do not have to live under Nazi rule. They teach their children the same thing and thank world war two vets for their sacrifices.
