World Health Organization Answers International Essential Tremor Foundation Call for New Classification

Lenexa, Kansas (PRWEB) December 03, 2012

Essential tremor (ET), a neurological condition that affects an estimated 10 million people in the U.S., now has a specific classification with important ramifications for patients and healthcare providers.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has given validation to millions of people in the U.S. diagnosed with essential tremor when the International Statistical Classification of Disease and Related Health Problems (ICD) code book was updated to the 10th edition. What was once coded and known by the healthcare community as a nonspecific tremor (333.1) or nonparkinsonian tremor now has a name and a code.

ET is very frequently misdiagnosed as Parkinsons disease. The condition is often characterized by rhythmic, involuntary and uncontrollable shaking of the hands and arms during movement, but it sometimes can also affect the head, voice, legs and trunk. This serious and progressive condition can significantly affect a persons quality of life socially, professionally and emotionally.

For the ET community, this designation means that essential tremor is recognized as a separate neurological condition that is classified and separate from other tremor disorders, says Catherine S. Rice, Executive Director of the International Essential Tremor Foundation.

Despite the high prevalence of ET, estimated at 46% among persons aged 65 and older, until now, there was no ICD-9-CM diagnostic code that is specific for ET, says Dr. Elan Louis, Department of Neurology, Columbia University, referring to the code system in the 9th edition of the code book.

The 10th edition ushers in, for the first time, a specific diagnostic code for ET. For the ET community, including patients, patient advocacy groups, physicians, and researchers, this is an important step that has implications in terms of research, clinical care, and public health, says. Dr. Louis.

For research, patients can be better ascertained from clinical care databases and billing data bases. A disease-specific code may be queried and cases may then be easily identified. The lack of a specific code for ET has been a barrier in this regard.

Prior to this classification, the medical community could not code essential tremor as a diagnosis all to itself. It was lumped in with other nonspecified conditions. Rice says, We considered this yet again another sign of indifference for a person diagnosed with essential tremor because their medical condition could not be properly classified by the medical community.

In clinical settings, ICD codes are universally applied across the country, thereby helping physicians to define the exact medical problem of a patient, anywhere in the country. The codes are necessary for patients filing insurance claims. Clinical trials would benefit from the ability to more accurately identify a patient sample, based on a more precise diagnostic code. Similarly, for clinical researchers and pharmaceutical companies, the usage patterns of specific medications may more easily be tracked in ET patients through computer linkage to pharmacy records.

Clearly, essential tremor is now recognized as a valid neurological condition that is viable, specific and respectable. This is a huge step forward in the fight to increase awareness not only with the public but with everyone in the healthcare community, says Rice. And it also provides a way of tracking the incidence and mortality rates so appropriate statistical information can be gathered.

But our job is not over and in many ways it intensifies. We must keep the pressure on continue to demand and expect that essential tremor as a neurological condition be given the respect it deserves and that it no longer be diminished as a nonspecific condition in the eyes of the healthcare community, says Rice. We must continue to make sure that people are not ignored or disrespected and that they be given as much courtesy and consideration as others who have other medical conditions. People diagnosed with essential tremor deserve so much more; access to better treatments, greater awareness of the condition and its effects and the funding of more research. This is a grand step in the right direction but by no means, the last.

About The International Essential Tremor Foundation:

Headquartered in Lenexa, Kan., and founded in 1988, the International Essential Tremor Foundation is the leading organization in the world dedicated to helping those affected by essential tremor. The IETF funds research to find the cause of essential tremor (ET) that leads to a treatment and cure, increases awareness, and provides educational materials, tools, and support for healthcare providers, the public, and those affected by ET.

Since its inception, the IETF has distributed more than $ 600,000 in research grants to fund 24 promising ET research studies. To learn more about essential tremor, visit

“Where Money Goes To Die”: A New Series From Money Morning Answers the Question – Can Mobile Computing & Cloud Storage Put Microsoft, Intel & Cisco Back on Top?

"Where Money Goes To Die": A New Series From Money Morning Answers the Question - Can Mobile Computing & Cloud Storage Put Microsoft, Intel & Cisco Back on Top?

Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) May 26, 2011

New technologies, like mobile computing and cloud storage, could save the original high-tech Big Three. Or the venture into new technology could serve as little more than a final gasp for these fading giants. Learn the answer in a new series by Money Morning.

For most of the 1990s, U.S. high-technology heavyweights Microsoft Corp., Intel Corp. and Cisco Systems Inc. didn’t just perform in their respective markets…

They ruled them:

·    Microsoft’s Windows operating system ran more than 95% of the world’s PCs and its word-processing and spreadsheet programs accounted for an estimated 95% of the market for office-applications software.

·    Intel, the other half of the so-called “Wintel” duopoly, had its chips in more than 90% of the world’s PCs.

·    And Cisco was acknowledged as the backbone of the Internet, a key reason that – back in March 2000, with a market cap of $ 555.4 billion – it became the most valuable company on earth.

Indeed, the shares of all three companies were the “must-own” stocks of the 1990s. Microsoft’s shares rose more than 9,000%, Intel’s 10,000% and Cisco’s phenomenal 66,000% during that 10-year stretch.

But in the decade that followed the “dot-com” crash, these once-invincible leaders have been transformed into miserable laggards – and are now the focus of shareholder scorn on a regular basis.

Over the last 10 years, while the Nasdaq Composite Index rose about 34% and the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index 8%. Meanwhile, Microsoft has slumped 25%, Intel 15% and Cisco 12.5%.

Once the innovation leaders in their fields, these three technology giants are no longer the front-runners in new ideas or new technology.

But ventures into mobile computing and cloud storage could return Microsoft, Intel and Cisco to their former glory, if they can learn how to play the new consumer technology markets.

All three companies have watched adaptable, inventive newcomers eat away at their de facto monopolies. And with continued dominance a virtual impossibility, what sort of future awaits these technology giants?

Learn if Microsoft, Intel, and Cisco can be reborn in the age of mobile computing in Part I of Money Morning’s four-part series: “Where Money Goes to Die:” After a Decade in Decline, Can Microsoft, Intel And Cisco Pull off a Rebound?.

Research Indicates First Time Trade Show Attendees Unable to Select the Best Display Systems to Match their Budgets — Alta Graphics Provides the Answers

Research Indicates First Time Trade Show Attendees Unable to Select the Best Display Systems to Match their Budgets -- Alta Graphics Provides the Answers

Portable Trade Show Display Systems

Miami, FL (PRWEB) March 9, 2010

Alta Graphics “Pre Packaged Trade Show Display Systems” simplify the process of selecting professional quality Banner Stands and Pop Up Booths.

Alta Graphics simplifies the process of building a trade show booth by pre packaging Banner Stands, Pop up booths, literature racks and portable sales counters to allow advertisers to easily match show size and budget with the right display system for professional brand promotion. While the internet is filled with choices of inexpensive trade show display systems, the success of your exhibit investment depends on matching the right display systems and graphics. The best “Value Proposition” may not be the cheapest banner stand available.

Trade Shows offer one of the most powerful ways to introduce your products and company to new clients. Event costs are frequently underestimated as being the cost of the space rental. Associated expenses like employee time, travel and entertainment, promotional giveaways and event promotion are hidden costs that are part of the investment. Matching your booths display systems with your overall budget may be the single most important decision affecting the Return on Event Investment. You want the very best booth in the show within your budget.

Alta Graphics has created packages for the most common trade show configurations using the best combination of components together with a package discount!

Small Format Events

Business card exchange or smaller networking events frequently provide a small area and table for the exhibitor to use. Exhibit systems need to be very light, quick to set up and should not be oversized.

    Silver Package : Retractable Banner Stand, Portable Literature Rack
    Gold Packag]: Retractable Banner Stand, Portable Literature Rack, Printed Table Cover
    Platinum Package: Table top Pop Up, Retractable Banner Stand, Portable Literature Rack, Printed Table Cover

Traditional Trade Show

The 10’ trade show booth is the industry standard and most companies will start with this configuration and grow over time. Typical event costs will range between $ 2,000 and $ 8,000 for space, travel and promotion. Experts recommend that you match your display investment with your total event cost. You do not want to spend $ 5,000 to show up and have a $ 500 display that is the worst in show. Remember that your display hardware and graphics will work for several years making the cost per use lower.

        Silver Package ($ 1,000+ range): In-Line Banner Stand Back Wall, Portable Literature Rack,
    Gold Package ($ 3,000+ Range): Pop Up Booth, Retractable Banner Stand, Portable Literature Rack
    Platinum Package ($ 5,000+ Range): Pop Up Booth, Retractable Banner Stand, Portable Literature Rack, Portable Customer Service Counter

Critical Trade Show Display Cost Considerations

While selecting the display hardware is the starting point, there are two additional factors that determine success. Both Graphic Design & Messaging and the selection of the printing material are what really is seen. You can have the best hardware with poor results if this is not properly executed.

Graphic Design

Designing display graphics is not the same as a brochure or web site in terms of objective and execution. The goal is to be seen and reinforce your product or brand and NOT to sell. The purpose of being at an event is the personal contact allowing your team to sell. The Graphics need to bring people to your team so you can show what you do. You can read more tips in our article “Designing large format graphic – 10 most common mistakes”. Alta Graphics offers professional creative services that can consult with your designers at no charge or handle the complete design project.

Display Print Materials

Large format printing offers an incredible array of choices that affect the overall look and cost of the booth. Because over half the cost of most displays is the actual print and it’s typically the only thing that visitors really see it is CRITICAL in configuring the best package. Properly matching your budget and creative artwork to the proper print material is the single most important factor in the success of your display investment. Our entry level systems use lower cost printed vinyl (PolyGraf) while the mid range and highest quality systems use Photo Mylar (OpalJet) or printed Fabric (FabGraf). “Properly matching your budget and creative artwork to the proper print material is the single most important factor in the success of your display investment.” We offer free consulting and samples to help you in this aspect of building a trade show display system that will represent your companies brand for years of use. Check our blog article “Configuring a Banner Stand” for additional information and tips.

Alta Graphics specializes in professional business communication services including printing, trade show display systems, marketing services and imprinted promotional items. With over 20 years of experience we are uniquely positioned to deliver comprehensive communications services across the complete range of advertising medias. For more information, visit

Ohio Renaissance Festival Answers Request from Family of Deceased Man

Ohio Renaissance Festival Answers Request from Family of Deceased Man

Harveysburg, OH (PRWEB) April 15, 2006

Charlotte Miller and her family will forever remember the date October 8. On this day, Charlotte’s husband, Brett, a passenger in a car driven by son Michael, was tragically killed when an impaired driver rammed their car on the passenger side at a fairly high rate of speed. Just the week before, the Millers had enjoyed yet another visit to Brett’s favorite place – the Ohio Renaissance Festival. Brett would attend several times a season, making the nearly 3 hour drive from Coldwater, OH.

“On March 1st, we received the first email with her ‘rather unique’ request. After hearing her story of an automobile accident which killed her husband and seriously injured her son she had my full attention. Her request to scatter some of her husband’s ashes at our festival site became more meaningful as she explained how much he loved our festival and that it was their practice to attend several times a season,” stated Amy Zimmer, Office Manager of the festival. Zimmer continued, “When I shared this request with management, there was no hesitation to honor her wishes.”

This afternoon, the Miller family traveled down to the Ohio Renaissance Festival, not for a day of entertainment, but for a much more somber event. Brett’s ashes were scattered around 1:15pm in a scenic area of the festival grounds as family and festival staff members watched. As Charlotte stated, “There will be one less jolly pirate in the world.”

As a result of the legalities Charlotte and her family are facing, she hopes to build awareness of her efforts to change laws regarding the rights of victims involved in accidents caused by impaired drivers. “We recently found out that if the person who drove was convicted of a felony (which the charges are) his insurance will not cover anything. . . .So, in order to have the medical bills paid we had to agree on a misdemeanor charge. This is something I have written to all our political people about, to get this changed so that the offenders get their proper punishment,” stated Charlotte.

The Ohio Renaissance Festival will open for its 17th annual season on September 2nd and run eight weekends thru October 22nd including Labor Day confident that Brett will be enjoying the festival as always, each and every day.
